Lambs to the wolves

I really don't have words for what is playing out in the middle east. Actually, I do but I am really afraid to put them down on paper (virtual as it may be).

This is all very dangerous and scary for the world and for us here at home. Yesterday the madman claimed that the Kurds didn't help in WWII.


However...

That was another LIE. I am not in the mood to split hairs here about Normandy and what not -- The Kurds helped fight the Second World War for the Brits and the French (under colonialism).




Not one member of the tRump family has served thier country. What he has done is inhumane. To be very honest with you, I don't think our allies are going to trust the United States for a very long time, and I think that might be the least of our problems. In the proxy war in Syria, we have surrendered to Assad and naturally, Russia. Imagine how Ukraine feels right now. I concur with former NSA chief Susan Rice when she said this last night:
“What is he smoking?” she asked host Cooper.

“I mean, the Kurds were the pointy end of the spear who fought ISIS on our behalf. They bled and died because they believed in the partnership they had established with the United States and we just threw them under the bus in 24 hours. It’s appalling, it’s disgraceful,” Rice said.

“And then today, when the Turks quite predictably are bombing the bejeezus out of Syria and Trump allegedly orders the U.S. military not to come to their defense, not to protect them. We’ve crossed a Rubicon here of the trail that I think is going to haunt us for decades to come,” she continued. “We are handing over our Kurdish allies to slaughter, and that blood is going to be on Donald Trump’s hands.”


We have tossed our Allies to slaughter, like lambs to the wovles. If the Occupant of the White House is willing to do that, what do you think he would do to his adversaries her on our very own soil?

He MUST be removed from office.

Morning.

Morning

Don't forget that those ISIS prisoners, who are most certainly going to jailbreak, are going to head to Europe (our allies) and he's just fine with that too. He's ok with the worst of the worst, as the talking heads describe them, going to basically invade our allies.

These whole 4 years are going to be the WTF part of schools history lessons.

This doesn't shock me at all. DeSantis has his tongue so far up Trump's ass that it is really gross.

It's all SO DAMN FILTHY!
An attorney for the two men, John Dowd, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Parnas and Fruman have little history of political involvement but emerged suddenly in a circle of elite Trump donors after Parnas gave $50,000 to support Trump’s election in 2016, and a pro-Trump super PAC reported receiving $325,000 last year from a company the two men incorporated.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested at Dulles International airport last night as they attempted to leave the country, a DOJ official tells @PierreTABC. AG Barr was told last night they were being arrested.

Jeepers.

Guess who else worked for Guiliani? The person who said that FB won't remove those lie-filled ads about Biden.

Ahem.

I guess now we know why the GOP is protecting Trump at all cost because they are deep in the shit as well. Hopefully they will get wiped out in the 2020 election and they can all move to Moscow.

So I was wondering why these guys would suddenly (NOW) flee the country.

I also wondered who may have tipped them off. Well...

Sen. Lindsey Graham labeled the Kurds a “threat” in a phone call with a couple pranksters posing as Turkey's minister of defense. | Susan Walsh/AP Photo

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham has in the last year become something of a congressional point man for President Donald Trump’s negotiations with Turkey, leading discussions on everything from Ankara’s purchase of a Russian missile system over the summer to their more recent incursion into northern Syria.

So when he received a call from a man he thought was Turkey’s minister of defense earlier in August, it didn’t strike him as unusual. “Thank you so much for calling me, Mr. Minister,” Graham said. “I want to make this a win-win, if we can.”

Story Continued Below

But it wasn’t the Turkish defense minister at all. Instead, it was Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, Russian pranksters with suspected ties to the country’s intelligence services who go by “Lexus and Vovan.” The duo have become notorious in recent years for their cold calls to unwitting, high-profile Western politicians, including Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, leading some to suspect that they’ve had help from the Kremlin, according to The Guardian. (A Schiff spokesman said at the time that the House Intelligence Committee “informed appropriate law enforcement and security personnel of the conversation.”)

Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Graham, confirmed the call’s authenticity to POLITICO. “We have been successful in stopping many efforts to prank Senator Graham and the office, but this one slipped through the cracks,” he said. “They got him.”


BOLD is my emphasis.

The pranksters managed to get Graham on the phone again a few days after the first call. In the second call, Graham says he met with Trump to discuss what the “defense minister” had told him. “We want a better relationship with Turkey. That’s exactly what he wants,” Graham said, referring to Trump and again urging Turkey to rethink the S-400 purchase.

Graham then raised an issue that’s been top of mind for Erdogan for years—the U.S. case involving Zarrab, who was convicted in 2018 and sentenced to 32 months in prison stemming partly from bribes he paid to Turkish bank officers.
