Lindsey Graham: I 'feel a lot better' 
about Syria pullout after lunch with Trump
by Naomi Lim
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday he felt less concerned about President Trump pulling U.S. troops from Syria following a two-hour lunch with him at the White House... "We had a great lunch. We talked about Syria and he told me some things that I didn't know that make me feel a lot better about where we're headed in Syria," Graham told reporters shortly after the meeting. "He promised to destroy ISIS. He's going to keep that promise. We're not there yet, but as I said today, we're inside the 10-yard line and the president understands the need to finish the job." Graham is one of a plethora of lawmakers who opposed Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. military personnel from the war-torn country. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis resigned in part due to the announcement. Graham, a former U.S. airman, said Sunday that Trump was taking the troop drawdown "seriously." "He's worried about Iranian influence and the potential dangers to Israel from having a superhighway from Beirut to Tehran in terms of delivering weapons into Lebanon, and he'll be talking to Turkey about making sure we don't have a war between the Turks and our allies the Kurds," Graham said. "So I like what I heard. We still have some differences, but I will tell you that the president is thinking long and hard about Syria."
Tough New Health Laws Coming Jan 1
{headlinehealth.com} ~ A slew of new health laws is set to go into effect when the New Year kicks off on Tuesday... Affected are blood alcohol limits, hunting regulations, scumbag/liar-nObamacare provisions, mandatory vaccinations, bake sales, and more – because clearly we don’t have enough laws on the books already to protect us from ourselves and one another. Get set to comply with these new legal requirements, compiled from news sources. Don’t see your state listed? Many legislatures and even federal regulators take their cues from trend-setting states like California, New York, and Massachusetts; similar changes could come to your state soon...California - Connecticut - Illinois - Massachusetts - Minnesota - New Jersey - New York City - New York State - Ohio - Utah and Nationwide, the states will be able to enact policies and regulations accomplishing what the ACA promised but could never provide: affordable health insurance for all Americans,” they wrote. Currently, the ACA remains the rule of the land while the appeal process continues...  https://headlinehealth.com/tough-new-health-laws-coming-jan-1/

John Kelly: Trump not building a 'wall'
by Daniel Chaitin
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly says the Trump administration isn't going to build a wall... “To be honest, it’s not a wall,” Kelly told the Los Angeles Times in an interview. Kelly is leaving the West Wing during a partial government shutdown, which began due to an impasse over border wall funding in Congress. President Trump has demanded $5 billion, while Democrats won't concede more than $1.3 billion for border security. Regardless the result of that fight, Kelly dismissed the idea that the final product will live up to the president's campaign promise of building a "big, beautiful wall." "The president still says ‘wall’ — oftentimes frankly he’ll say ‘barrier’ or ‘fencing,’ now he’s tended toward steel slats. But we left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration, when we asked people what they needed and where they needed it," Kelly said. While Trump still does describe the barrier generally as "the wall," he explained earlier this month that the idea for a concrete wall has been replaced by "artistically designed steel slats."...  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/john-kelly-trump-not-buildi...

Media and the Progressive Socialists
by John Velisek
{ipatriot.com} ~ The news as it is today follows a familiar pattern. You wake up turn on the TV and hear about the latest “bombshell” of some supposed Trump malfeasance... All day and into primetime it Is blared throughout the world as the honest truth by those talking heads in the mainstream media. Sometime around 10 or 11 at night it will be debunked and never mentioned again. All the little-controlled roaches of the progressive movement then scramble to find the next garbage story to do the best they can to bludgeon Trump the next morning. Giving us the “highly intelligent but looking constipated look” they intone the news as if it is gospel.  CNN blares the idiocy of their newscasts all over the world, and if it wasn’t for airports, NO ONE would watch. For self-preservation, they still call themselves a trusted name in news and do not understand that viewership is collapsing into an abyss which may have no return. CBS legal executive Hayley Geftman-Gold plastered on Facebook that she has no sympathy for those killed and wounded at the country music festival outside the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas because as country music fans they were probably Republicans. She undoubtedly felt the same way about the shooting of Steve Scalise on a ball field full of Republicans. This is what passes for the “party of tolerance” that has become the Democrat progressive socialist party. You would expect a bit more moderation of tone from someone is such a position in the media, but they understand that all the others in the media will protect them from any fallout for the tone deafness of their hatred and vitriol. They are true pigeons on the chessboard living in their little bubbles, talking only to those who think just like them and feeling morally superior to anyone who disagrees. She has since been fired as she should have been, but her firing changes nothing. There are those in the media that feel as she does that are still expecting us to treat them as the voice of tolerance and trust them to tell us the truth. They aren’t, and we won’t. Let’s  look at some of the vindictiveness that has spewed forth from the progressive socialists over the past little while and see what tolerance looks like to them...  https://ipatriot.com/media-and-the-progressive-socialists/

Graham rips scumbag/liar-nObama over Iraq troop withdrawal: 'That's a bunch of bulls---, pardon my French'

by Ben Wolfgang 
{washingtontimes.com} ~ Former President scumbag/liar-nObama’s “bulls–” decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011 paved the way for the rise of the Islamic State... and left the Trump administration in a difficult spot, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday. Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the South Carolina Republican vehemently rejected the notion that Mr. scumbag/liar-nObama had no choice but to pull American forces from the country because of a previous agreement Iraqi leaders had reached with the George W. Bush administration years earlier. “That’s a bunch of bulls–, pardon my French. That’s a complete lie,” Mr. Graham said. “scumbag/liar-nObama wanted to get to zero troops. He got to zero.” There are now about 5,200 American troops in Iraq. Their mission centers on training and assisting Iraqi security forces in the fight against the Islamic State. During a trip to Iraq last week, Mr. Trump said he has no plans to bring those forces home. But the president has said he’ll withdraw the 2,000 American troops from Syria and also plans to cut in half the 14,000 U.S. forces in Afghanistan...

Blindness

by Mark Hay

{ipatriot.com} ~ This is a more expository fleshing out of an impossible attempt at dialog with a couple of reality blinded individuals, call them Don and Jim, driveling on my FB page. There’s no point trying to reason with them, for the precise reasons that follow and are in fact the very point of the whole conversation. The initial topic started with my stating the incontestable position that Trump has a great many successes under his belt and their complete denial that he has done anything positive I’d like to force them to put their money where their mouths are by sending back the extra $5000 or so they have in their bank or pocket or have spent, but don’t think they’d be THAT willing to say that $5000 was the “nothing” they claim and therefore send it back to the Treasury. Here goes:
 
These responses continue to prove and in fact amplify my blindness point, which I’ll illustrate with an analogy in the hope that somebody with a SMIDGEN of vision left might perceive they have a problem and address it: you can’t cure a blind man by showing him a picture. I could post pages of Trump’s accomplishments and ways we’re all better off, but it would be pointless because they would be unable to see them. Further, I could respect them and carry on constructive arguments for both sides if people like Don and Jim could see those pages and acknowledge them with something like, “Gee, I didn’t realize he’d done all that for us” and then perhaps follow it with something like, “But here’s how these new Democratic proposals WE’RE LISTING can make things even better without giving up these very real gains from which we’re all benefiting.” But said blindness precludes the entree to any such reasoning, since it is unable to take into account and analyze the cause and effect of what’s already happened… if you don’t have that comprehension of how things have and actually do work, it would be pure, blind sort of an unintended pun luck if something they devised would work.

The whole thing is particularly insidious because most blind people realize they are blind people. Not in this case, which is even FURTHER insidious because it can’t be fixed surgically since it’s actually a manifestation of the catatonic state known as TDS. But the SERIOUS danger here is something that can be demonstrated by another of my analogies: if you know you’re blind, you take remedial actions and behave in accordance with abilities; these politically blind folks are like a visionless person who still thinks it’s OK to drive! A failure to acknowledge reality can actually be very dangerous, and in this case, the danger is to our country by virtue of bad or nonexistent inputs leading to flawed reasoning. Another analogy might be to imagine a blind person discussing flight, not seeing how it is actually accomplished, but doing LSD and thinking a “flying trip” shows him how it’s done and provides the instruction map for launching a man into outer space. This could prove problematic for that man, as such ill-informed reasoning is for our country.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
