Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Congress must stop this mad man. There is absolutely no defending what Trump is doing. None! He must be stopped before he does damage we can't come back from.

  2. There is no chaos in Syria and there is no chaos in the White House, the only chaos since 2016 has been this far left wing extremist propaganda and the enemy political left-wing faction that lost the election. These domestic enemies many of whom are flagrant anti-Americans are the ones suffering from chaos. We are going to cut your left wing leaders heads off and kick them around, and then make you watch.

  3. "Anyone who cannot accept the outcome of the election is a threat to our democracy." -Hillary Cankles Clinton 2016

  4. Democrats now advocate for more war in the ME to create a new state that has never existed, and taking land from 5 nations.

  5. this does not come from erdogan….trump is just using turkey to hide putin's hand….putin wants the us forces out to help assad.

  6. i enjoy how the fake news think that the audience is a 4 year old child.
    we know what is your agenda
    TRUMP IS PLAYING ALL OF YOU AND YOU ARE SUCH A FOOLS YOU DONT SEE IT
    i as a average citizen of 🇺🇸 see how you just fall for everything trump does. i love how everything is negative its more coverage for trump … keep on going!!!

  7. Well another example of how the mind of a "smart and wise genius" works in a sociopath who only operates what's good and in his own interest and has no ability to discern right from wrong!

  8. It I will be interesting to see if Kerry, clintons, Biden, and others visit these countries again quickly or has conversations with these countries and see what shenaginans they startup to get back at trump. Eeww their greenbacks are getting lighter and lighter…..money money money.

  9. What is Donald Trump getting from Erdogan that profits him? If the Turks massacre the Kurds, Trump will call it fake news and the GOP will parrot that message. We put old Heelspurs in charge of our military. What a ghastly mistake.

  10. Why should the US go to war with Turkey over the Kurds, the Syrian army and the Kurds can defeat the Turkish Army themselves! Globalists want US  troops in Syria and like Afghanistan won't allow US troops to leave!  Turkey is a NATO member, if they want to continue as such they must behave themselves!

  11. Who cares, the media trying to make Trump look bad, but fail to point out how other countries also are ignoring the situation. Why the USA going to sacrifice their money and their soldiers to help when there’s no other assistance. Expect USA to do every thing

  12. Another human rights violation lawsuit filed against Stephen Miller and Kiersten Nielsen for abuses at the Southern border. It's horrifying to read about the life-long psychological damage done to those children and parents.

  13. With all the foreign, behind the scene, interference, could Israel be another invisible foreign force over-riding US WH policies? Maybe, the intention is to create a WW lll starting from destabilizing the Middle East, the continents of Africa, Asia or Latin America to reduce world population??

  14. America has been betrayed & the white-house has fallen into the hands of the enemy.

    Trumps republican regime is a real global terrorist organization & his sadistic supporters are complicit.

  15. I wonder what’s really going on over there. I don’t believe anything broadcast by the mainstream media. One thing is certain, if Syrian citizens were well armed they wouldn’t be helpless against a tyrannical regime . That’s where America’s future is heading. Media saturation of fake news mass shootings are meant to groom stupid Americans into favoring gun control

  16. Is trump dumb? Clearly he has no morals and respect towards a true allie the kurds..this got general Mattis upset and u could say he resigned because of trump's phony side towards allies .

  17. Do americans do research and READ? or do they listen to these fakers that were SURE Hilary would win? Troops are still there they're not going anywhere….TO SUGGEST did you hear him ?

  18. This is unbelievable how this President is in league with Vladimir Putin doing his bidding and, the Republican Party is cool with it !!!***

  19. tRump has some serious "daddy" issues! He will defer to ANY dominant male and the more dominant, the more he defers! If the Dems can conjure a single Alpha and go after this maniac, we just might have a country remaining for 2020!

  20. Re draw the borders of 5 Nations to make 1.
    In God We Trust .
    Tell that to the Palestines and others who want a Country.

  21. The Kurds were promised a piece of Iraq and elsewhere to make themselves a state for themselves to live in; they are to date a "stateless" people.

  22. He explained the difference between tower and towers… From the way he said it you know someone blew his mind when they pitched the towers idea.

  23. WHY WOULD you guys enlist Harmann, who is an AIPAC PAWN…..WHAT THE HECK are you guys about??? GOOD GRIEF….Your stock has lost value….

  24. Erdogan has had a hand in ISIS and the Syrian civil war since day one. On the one hand, covert support and deliberately not seeing supply transports into Syria for ISIS has been blamed on parts of the Turkish authorities, with Erdogan's son being under suspicion for dealing in oil smuggling with ISIS and other relatives of his (a daughter inlaw, if I remember correct) medical aid to ISIS fighters who were wounded, who then returned to Syria to commit mor attrocities.
    On the other hand, a Turkmen group in northern Syria, the Al Nusra Brigades, have had open support from Erdogan.
    Erdogan has received loads of money from the European Union for holding back refugees from Syria in Turkey whom he now wants to settle in northern Syria, basically under control of Al Nusra, thus within Ankara's reach of influence.
    Syria is way too weak at the moment to withstand an invasion of Turkey. But The Vlad is in town to save the day another time! This will further increase Syria's dependecy on Russia, thus fortify Russia's foreign influence in a key region of the world. Syria will not be able to put its own interests over Russia's in case of there ever being conflicting interests for a very, very long time. With Assad's dictatorship as partner of Moscow, democracy supporting movements will have no chance whatsoever in Syria, all hopes of the Arabian spring shattered. Syria, another forced devotee to godfather Putin.
    Withdrawing the US influence there opens a vacuum for all this to happen. Any further questions for who is pulling the strings there? Trump was a real bargain for Putin.

  25. I guess you and your guest don't know about Trump's election promise to bring the troops home and I guess you have forgotten that Obama bombed 7 countries continuously for 8 years without congressional approval.

  26. Shame on you DT. You are acting like a petty dictator…..Putin would be proud of you. The Kurds are fierce fighters and unhesitatingly loyal to their allies, they have been betrayed yet again.

  27. What does that Shylock State-first traitorous Jew Jane Harman have to say about anything? Run that person out of this country please. She was an AIPAC spy when she was in Congress, caught red-handed on the phone with her Mossad handlers.

  28. US has no internationally lawful legitimate business being in Syria in the first place. It is an occupying meddling force. From this point of view the Clown POTUS' proposed withdrawal action is correct. Having got involved illegally however, allying itself with the Kurds who have been loyal in fighting the perceived collective enemy, it is an entirely weasel like manoeuvre to now leave the Kurds to suffer at the hands of Turkey. The Kurds should have known better as they had seen the betrayal of Shiites in southern Iraq by the US during Saddam Hussein's reign. After they were first promised support, the US abandoned them and thousands were massacred by Saddam's younger son. Best thing the US can do is withdraw entirely from the Middle East and stop meddling, stop supporting despots like those in power in KSA and stop attempting to advance the Israeli project. The backlash to this untenable now eight decade old foreign policy will be profound and will lead to WW3 much sooner than later. This repercussion is so obvious to any analysis that the action of continuing with the same strategy is a sure sign that the predicted outcome is not only envisaged but now planned for. The draconian way of dealing with a US deficit declared at $22.5T but veiling a not mentioned $150T-$250T [because pensions and medical contributions of the baby boomers-remains officially unaccounted!] and that of climate change which requires a strenuously resisted global force capable of over ruling and overpowering any of the big 5 or a combination of them sees the solution to be a horrific world wide culling of our race through nuclear war. All of this nonsense then is simply the calm before this horrific final solution. In the end it would seem that despite boasts of technological advancements we humans are really worse than dumb animals.

  29. Of course, Chump's real motive could have been very simple- draw attention away from his impeachment. He knew this decision would cause outrage & much discussion. Job done, everyone's talking about Syria, nobody's talking about Chump's guilt over Ukraine.

  30. Remember when Erdogan came to Washington DC and his security detail attacked U.S. citizens? I do and that was a sign Erdogan is a despot. Of course, trump did nothing because he just loves dictators and despots and wants so badly to be one too.

  31. bring it back to the true owner Syria is the one and only solution, Turks did nothing against ISIS in the past, or now or in the future. SDF should leave americans alone in the dessert, please…go join SAA for a better future.

  32. Great and unmatched wisdom?????? Who in their right mind talks like that?? Anyone you know??? Jesus, you yanks are in a lot of trouble……

  33. – – – Whats her name with the glasses needs….NEEDS to do something about her VERY annoying scruffy VOICE !! !! – UUGGGH !! – –

  34. I Wonder how much Erdogan payed Trump for yet another genocide against The Kurds?
    That's why US cant be trusted anymore.
    No friends but The Mountains
    The Revolution continues ✌️

  35. I think Putin saw the mental weakness in trump and used that to get trump in office so trump can do Putin's dirty work .

  36. You have given power of a snake over you and your this you gave president of the United States of America to is planning to take you out because he in trouble he an't never cared for The country just what he can get and move on after you voted for him now look at the mess of thing's

  37. to do anything with the Trump administration is the next best thing to suicide…. you cannot trust the US administration of Trump…. and actually, it was not much better before Trump either.

  38. Trump Tower Istanbul is not a property of Trump, he is only licensing the usage of the brand, nothing else. And the owners try to get rid of that and terminate the contract since the Muslim ban.

  39. Surprise! President GUMP, as usual, has no frickin idea of what he is doing. Senile and unbelievably Stupid. Great job electing this lemon America! Or should i say orange.

  40. Very soon the affairs of the world will be chaotic. The world will be ignited with fire as a result of the irresponsible and suicidal foreign policy of this president

  41. Trump has zero regard for human life. He has never respected anyone but himself. Total disregard for a people who have fought alongside the US. So odd he speaks of / demands LOYALTY he NEVER honours himself. What a sad ‘chump’ 🙄

    I wonder what Turkey has agreed to do for Trump we all aren’t aware of, some investigating for dirt on a ‘non-sycophant’ perhaps ? . . . . Hmm 🤔

  42. Oh how wish Trump's father pulled out just before Trump's mum was pregnant with Trump,
    The world would've been a better place.

  43. They are all terrorists – the fact that one bunch is killing a nastier bunch does not alter the fact that the Kurds make terror attacks on Turkey. If Turkey take both lots out / or the Kurds compromise /do a deal with Turkey is a way of dealing witj it without risk to USA lives – good!!!!!!

  44. Its ok people. Turkey are only about to release tens of thousands of trained killers into the public domain who hate everybody who isnt islamic. time to tool up methinks. ……….we are more than ready.——– sanction it Boris, right now.

  45. Dough boy doesn't care about anthing or a human life. I hope that massive amount of suidfeds he takes catch up with him and whatever he has makes him croak. I would say heart, but we know he doesnt have of those..SHAMEFUL!

  46. Turkey 🇹🇷 traitors of nato allies organization. China 🇨🇳 and Russia 🗑👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  47. If trump Does allow US forces to stay in Syria he needs to secure some guarantees from the countries involved and some serious sanctions against any country that renegs.

    It's not as if the pullout has begun yet. It has only just been announced. Even if it is a formal declaration thats all it is so far

  48. The Turks were going to attack anyway, with or without US troops in the way. The president just pulled our troops out of harms way.

  49. LETS TALK ABOUT SYRIA AND KURDS..THE KURDS ARMY ARE CALLED YPG..YPG IS A MARXIST MOVEMENT STEMS BACK TO STUDENT MOVEMENT FROM ANKARA. I AM NOT SUPRISED THAT USA NOT ANYMORE WANT TO SUPPORT A MARXIST MILITARY MOVEMENT..SDF HAS OFTEN BEEN USED WHEN TALKING ABOUT THE KURDS..BUT SDF IS ONLY A NAME. THE POWER IN THE KURDS MOVEMENT IS THE MARXIST MOVEMENT YPG..BUT YOU DID NOT KNOW IT BECAUSE USA ALWAYS CALLED THE KURDS SDF, INSTEAD OF YPG….

  50. Oh, you people are sick.
    What you don't know about Turkey, Syria, Kurds and the USA is monumental. What arrogant P'sOS you are. So incredibly IGNORANT!
    MAGA KAG Trump 2020 #walkaway

  51. The tragedy is that hundreds of cute little 4, 5 , and 6 year olds will get killed but Trump gets to live even though he's responsible. 🙁

  52. Did any.of you twats say one word when Syria used gas on civilians , crosses Obama's red line and slaughtered 900,000 civilians.
    No you did not. Get off your high horses morons. We cannot police the world, f off

  53. Trump has cowered the GOP organization and silently declared himself a de facto Emperor of some sorts to match his dearest mentor in Russia, Putin, and the other similar dictators around the World he admires. He senses that he is only recognized by these paralyzed Republicans he has been using to consolidate his grip over their Party, and that infuriates him a lot.

    Thus, in his mind, I strongly believe,Trump sees the Republicans as having acquiesced to his self-declared dictatorial Presidency, while the Democrats continue to reject him. So, he fumes to the point of delusion when confronted in anyway by the Democrats and the few remnant decent Republican leaders who would not bow down to him. He has been good at pushing the limits of despotism he could enjoy with every new scandal he gets caught in, by drawing in the support of the cowardly GOP Legislators.

    It is therefore up to the Democrats and other decent American patriots to keep restraining him with every conceivable legal tool at their disposal. If that fails, the great American Democratic experiment would be unraveling faster than anyone could imagine in the foreseeable future.

  54. America abandoning Allies… Trump has forever marred the reputation of the supposed greatest country in the world😩😩😩..

  55. This is another Fake News by Trump's Jewish Friends at the Main Stream Media in an attempt to divert attention from the REAL news of Gen. Colin Powel 's Criticism of the GOP Republican party and the Trump Administration. This Real news will do Damage to Trump reelection campaign. And all these Jewish Media like Bloomberg, Bill Gates, CNN, The New York Time, etc. They do not want that to happen to Israel.

  56. Both political camps in the US criticize Trump for withdrawing troops from northern Syria. He is criticized for leaving the Kurds and letting them lose on the battlefield against the Turkish army. The critics talk about the SDF as the US ally against ISIL. But the SDF is just a name in the Kurdish movement. The Kurdish militia is the YPG, a movement built on a maxistical student movement from Ankara. Is it really so that the United States should support the establishment of Kurdistan in northern Syria. It will create a new country in the Middle East ruled by Marxist ideology. Is it in the US interest? Hardly. But why did they support the YPG in the beginning? This is one of the mistakes the United States has made in the Middle East. I see no difficulty in withdrawing American troops from Syria because they should never have been there. The fight against ISIL would have been won without American intervention.

  57. The most important part of this video that he says Turkish authority relates most of the Kurdish people with PKK that is a lie. I am Kurdish who lives in Turkey. Who was born and raised in this country and I’m not supporting PKK. Why would I support who Kills and bombs civilians? Please guys don’t believe in the propaganda? Try to read different resources
