IT's the media's and Democrats fault.  No Donny, it was stupid for you to think that people would be OK with you just awarding the G7 to your own property.

“Based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020,” Trump tweeted. He said his administration “will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately.”

https://www.thedailybeast.com/russian-media-cheers-trump-moves-in-syria-putin-won-the-lottery

 

“Putin won the lottery! Russia’s unexpected triumph in the Middle East,” raved Mikhail Rostovsky in his article for the Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets. “Those who were convinced of Trump’s uselessness for Russia ought to think again...What Washington got out of this strange move is completely unclear. To the contrary, what Moscow gained from this is self-evident...Trump’s mistake in Syria is the unexpected ‘lottery win’ that further strengthened Moscow’s position in the Middle East and undermined America’s prestige as a rational political player and a reliable partner.”  

Maksim Yusin, the editor of international politics at the leading Russian business daily Kommersant, was amazed by the ongoing stream of inexplicable actions by the American president that benefit the Kremlin. “All of this benefits the Russian Federation,” Yusin marveled. “You know, I’ve been watching Trump’s behavior lately and get seditious thoughts: maybe he really is a Russian agent? He is laboring so hard to strengthen the international image of Russia in general—and Putin in particular...In this situation, Americans—to their chagrin and our enjoyment—are the only losers in this situation.”

“This is such a pleasure,” grinned Olga Skabeeva, the host of Russia’s state television program 60 Minutes. “Russian soldiers have taken an American base under our complete control, without a fight!” Skabeeva’s co-host Evgeny Popov added: “Suddenly, we have defeated everyone.” Incredulously, Skabeeva pointed out: “This is an American base—and they just ran away! Trump ran away!”

“It’s been a long time since America has been humiliated this way,” gloated political analyst Mikhail Sinelnikov-Orishak, “They ran away in shame! I can’t recall such a scenario since Vietnam.” He added: “For us, this is of great interest, because this is a key region where energy prices are being determined. That is a shining cherry on top.” Political scientist Andrey Nikulin concurred: “This is sad for America. A smaller-scale version of what happened in Vietnam.”

Appearing on the nightly television show The Evening with Vladimir Soloviev, political analyst Evgeny Satanovsky recounted many ways in which Trump’s decision to withdraw from Syria and abandon the Kurds has hurt the image and standing of the United States: “America betrayed everyone...Trump also strengthened the anti-American mood in Turkey, when he promised to destroy the Turkish economy.” Satanovsky opined that now any economic problems or currency fluctuations in Turkey can be blamed directly on the United States, prompting textile, tobacco, steel and other industries to turn away from America. “Anti-Americanism in Turkey is off the charts,” Satanovsky pointed out, “American politics are tangled in their own shoelaces... America is successfully self-eliminating from the region.”

Pundits all over the Russian state media pondered out loud about the merits of Trump’s self-proclaimed “infinite wisdom” of pulling the U.S. forces out of northern and eastern Syria, concluding that the decision was an enormous blow to America’s standing, undermining its current and potential alliances. On the other hand, Turkey is delighted with the outcome. Vice President Mike Pence gave Erdoğan everything the Turkish side has been attempting to achieve, in exchange for a promised five-day pause in the offensive. A Turkish official told Middle East Eye, “We got exactly what we wanted out of the meeting.” At the conclusion of the five-day pause, Erdoğan will be meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi.

Appearing on 60 Minutes, Franz Klintsevich, a member of the Federation Council's Committee on Defense and Security, declared that Russia will take full advantage of America’s withdrawal from the Middle East, becoming a top player in the region. Klintsevich argued that America’s withdrawal from Syria represented Russia’s “global victory” and “demonstrated the absolute superiority of Russia’s arms, diplomacy and foreign policy.”

During the same show, political analyst Mikhail Sinelnikov-Orishak was overcome with gratitude: “I look at Trump and think: ‘May God grant him good health—and another term. This is a great situation for Russia...We can practically sit back and reap the dividends from what others are doing...Meanwhile, Trump is yet to make a single good deal, which is why I wish him good health, may he flourish and get re-elected...Trump is a great candidate. I applaud him...For America, this isn’t a very good president.”

US troops leaving Syria will go to Iraq, says Pentagon chief

All US troops withdrawing from northern Syria are expected to be relocated to western Iraq, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper confirmed.

 

Mr Esper told reporters that, under current plans, about 1,000 soldiers would be redeployed to help stop the resurgence of Islamic State (IS).

 

President Donald Trump has previously pledged to bring US troops home.

 

Meanwhile, a Kurdish-led force said it had withdrawn all its fighters from the besieged Syrian town of Ras al-Ain.

 

Correspondents said it appeared to be the start of a wider withdrawal under a US-brokered temporary ceasefire agreement between Turkey and Kurdish fighters.

 

President Trump's announcement of a US withdrawal from northern Syria paved the way for a Turkish military offensive against Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria.

Yet another example of TRUMP being flat out wrong.  His violations of the emoluments clause should be enough to impeach.  There are violations that would land regular Government employees on the street or possibly in jail.  His G7 ploy would have been #1 on that list.

 

LINK

Trump said the emoluments clause is 'phony.' It's part of the US Constitution.

 

  • President Donald Trump on Monday said the emoluments clause is "phony," but it's enshrined in the US Constitution.
  • The foreign emoluments clause bars public officials from receiving gifts or cash from foreign governments without congressional approval.
  • Several lawsuits against Trump accuse him of violating the Constitution in this regard by profiting from the presidency.
  • The subject has come up again in relation to Trump's ultimately canceled move to hold the next G7 summit at his Trump National Doral Miami resort.

The US just vacated Syria allowing thousands of ISIS soldiers to rejoin their ranks, and now they are diverting troops to fight ISIS in Iraq?!

 

This doesn't even come close to making sense.

Republican politician calls Buttigieg a ‘queer’ during council meeting

The public applauded and shouted "Amen" when he was done ranting about gays and Democrats.

 

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2019/10/republican-politician-calls-buttigieg-queer-council-meeting/

 

A county commissioner in Tennessee was caught on video ranting about how the U.S. has “a queer running for president.”

“It’s time we wake up people, it’s time, it’s past time,” said Sevier County Commissioner Warren Hurst (R) at a meeting yesterday about an ordinance to make the county a “gun sanctuary.”

Even though the meeting was supposedly about guns, Hurst attacked South Bend Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg because he’s gay.

We got a queer running for president, if that ain’t about as ugly as you can get,” Hurst, who had a toothpick in his mouth, said to laughs and applause.

“Look what we got running for president in the Democratic party. We can go over here to [the Sevier County] jail and get better people out of there than those running for democratic to be President of the United States.”

A woman in the public said, “This is not professional. This is [expletive].” She left.

But Hurst continued: “I’m not prejudice, a white male in this country has very few rights and they’re getting took more every day.”

Some people applauded at the end of his rant and a few shouted “Amen.”

 

Hurst was contacted by WVLT 8 after video of his speech was made public and he said he stands by his words.

He also said that he has a black friend.

 

Man he's like the perfect sterotype. "I have a black friend" "I'm not prejudice, but"

About a year ago, an anonymous source within the Trump administration penned an op-ed critical of Bone Spurs and his administration. Trump called it "treasonous" and ordered the AG, Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation to find out who the source was....

 

....now, this same person has written a book, which is due out next month:

 

https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/22/politics/anonymous-trump-official-book/index.html

 

I'm sure it will be deemed "Fake News!" by Trump and his cronies, but I'm also sure if will be embarrassing for Fat Donny and an early Christmas present for the rest of us. :)

The irony is that this guy has a problem with the possibility of a "queer" president, but probably has no issue with brothers and sisters getting it on, or farmers "tending" to their sheep.

"Notorious" RBG wins a Million bucks for the non-profit of her choice:

 

https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/23/politics/ruth-bader-ginsburg-wins-award-trnd/index.html

Quote

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has long championed human rights. Now, the 86-year-old's decades of service have earned a nonprofit of her choosing $1 million.

The Supreme Court associate justice won the Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture for her contributions to social justice and general equality, the prize jury announced Wednesday.
Known in some circles as the Notorious RBG, the feminist trailblazer, cancer survivor and octogenarian athlete was selected from a list of more than 500 nominees who've made cultural and ethical advances. But ultimately, it was Ginsburg's storied career that won her the honor.
"By grit and determination, brains, courage, compassion and a fiery commitment to justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg rose from modest beginnings to become one of the most respected, and most beloved, jurists of our time," prize founder Nicolas Berggruen said in a statement.
Ginsburg is the fourth Berggruen Prize honoree since its inception in 2016, and the third woman to win the award. Berggruen, a billionaire philanthropist, founded the awards through the Berggruen Institute to honor pioneers making political, social and economic advances that shape the world.
Berggruen cited her notable work during and before her tenure as a Supreme Court justice, including founding the Women's Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union and co-writing the first law textbook on gender discrimination.
Ginsburg has made it clear she doesn't plan on leaving the bench anytime soon. In an address this week, given during the recess before the Supreme Court takes on a groundbreaking LGBTQ case, she said her pancreatic cancer diagnosis has given her a renewed "zest for life."
Oh, and she still does push-ups every day.

 

I'm shocked that this award didn't go to Brett Kavanagh....but I hear he's still in the running for the "DC Kegger" award....
