President Trump Has It Wrong on Syria – Assad Did NOT Use Chemical Weapons – Deep State Neo Cons Misleading the President… | The Last Refuge for conservatives. This article was from right before Trump stupidly declared war on Russia and Syria. Conservatives find it very hard to believe their leader has utterly betrayed them all. When Bannon was kicked out of the War Room, Trump allowed this because all the generals demanded this happen before they shoved Trump off the cliff and into endless wars. Here is Breitbart repeating the news feeds:
“The strikes were intended to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again,” he said.
The missiles were launched from U.S. destroyers USS Porter and Ross, which were in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea at the time, he said.
The missiles hit aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage areas, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems and radars, he said.
Davis said the U.S. military took care to avoid any human casualties. It notified Russia – and “many countries” – of the planned strikes ahead of time. There were Russian troops at the airbase, although it’ is not clear if they were still there during the strikes.
Davis said the U.S. struck an area where Russian and Syrian troops were not located.
“In this case in particular, every precaution was taken to execute these strikes with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield,” Davis said.
The strike was aimed at deterring another chemical weapons attack by the regime.
HAHAHA. Talk about insane. OK, no laughing matter except this happens so frequently, it is a joke. How on earth can Assad stop using chemical weapons when he already isn’t doing it? Duh. Zero proof, of course, before jumping the gun by Trump.
The fact is, the generals and Pentagon and CIA, NSA, etc. get more money and power if they have the Cold War only they are stupid enough to start a hot war. That is, WWIII. Trump ran on reducing our foreign wars, make NATO ‘allies’ pay real money for defending themselves and talking to Putin to cool things down a tad. And to stop illegal aliens invading America.
All that is now down the drain and we are on the same old same old: no money for guards or border controls for the US, citizens have to be checked at airports to see if they are terrorists while the borders are wide open to terrorists. We will have all the crummy things we voted against, pushed down our throats yet again.
And I predict that after a few years of this garbage, there may be an open revolt. This could lead to a civil war within. The troops and police on the ground voted for Trump in huge numbers based on what he said he would do and now are increasingly angry and scared but not scared enough to revolt…yet!
They are the ones who will die or be hamstrung more and more. And the internal collapse will continue and pick up speed. I went to the Conservative Treehouse to see how the True Believers are reacting to this morning’s news. Below are a selection of the smarter comments. Most are in disbelief and still hope Trump will do what he said he would do when running for President:

David you are so wrong. There is NO motivation for Assad to kill his own people. Do you know about the approx 250 people that were just kidnapped from Pro-Assad towns of Madjal and Assad a week or so ago…?? Did you know the SU-22’s (aircraft) used in destroying what was believed to be a missile depot cannot carry the munitions for chemical weapons? Thus the depot must have already had chemicals inside. Or the bodies were already killed and “displayed” on the ground for media effect…we’ve never seen that happen before, have we??
An AFP (al-Qaeda embedded) reporter claims “the smell” hit him when he entered the hospital. He meant the gas smell. But Sarin does not smell at all.
The White Helmets “rescuers” worked without even basic protection. That pretty much excludes nerve agents like Sarin or they all would be sick or dead by now. The measures they took in the videos would not be helpful to any real victim.
SARIN GAS ATTACK – YouTube
A reporter from the opposition Orient News tweeted yesterday(!) that they would soon report on a gas attack in that place – “prediction”?!
The alleged “impact craters” shown on oppo TV of the “bombs” looked more like mortar craters and were in a widely open area. Where were the people when those “bombs” hit?
The “doctor” who announced the attack first was jailed in UK for allegedly helping to kidnap journos in Syria. He was let go back to Syria (turned to work for MI-6?)
Attack some civilians when it just won back the cities of Hama and Damascus? Just days before new international talks come up? Just days after Trump Admin said Assad leaving is not the priority No.1?
People hoodwinked by our Real Rulers find it hard to believe they have been conned. But they have been neoconned by the neocons. And so it goes. Will the right wake up to their obvious peril? I wonder. The left has gone totally brain dead at this point with only a tiny handful defying the propaganda machine of the left. Consortiumnews for example, still holds strong:
The New York Times, which has never heard an allegation against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that it hasn’t immediately believed, has compiled a list of his alleged atrocities with a surprising omission: the Aug. 21, 2013 sarin gas attack outside Damascus.
Why this omission is so surprising is that the sarin incident was the moment when the Western media and the Washington establishment piled on President Barack Obama for not enforcing his “red line” by launching military strikes against the Syrian government to retaliate for Assad “gassing his own people.”
The retaliation, which would have pummeled the Syrian military, was hotly desired by neoconservatives and liberal interventionists who were obsessed with achieving another Mideast “regime change” even if that risked turning Syria over to Al Qaeda and/or the Islamic State. The story of Obama’s supposed “red line” retreat has become a treasured groupthink of all the “important people” in D.C.
So, for the Times to compile a summary of alleged Assad atrocities, which included a separate section on “chemical attacks,” and to leave out the August 2013 case suggests that even The New York Times cannot sustain one of the most beloved myths of the Syrian war, that Assad was at fault for the sarin attack.
And this revelation did not one whit of good. The NYT happily lied all over again like they did so frequently in the past. Perry, who runs this site, has been a noble fighter for sanity and he is a fine human being but like myself, he cannot stop the Machine. He can only describe it.
Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh further demolished the Assad-sarin myth in an article that traced the chemicals back to Turkish intelligence, but the mainstream U.S. media was so hostile to any dissenting view on the Assad-did-it groupthink that Hersh had to publish his findings in the London Review of Books. Later, Turkish police and opposition officials corroborated much of Hersh’s findings – and I’ve been told that U.S. intelligence analysts now agree, at least generally, with Hersh’s conclusions.
Seymour Hirsh is another fabulous reporter who I have followed for years. He, too is ignored by the mainstream media as much as possible. Of course, he is, like myself, totally censored in US mainstream fake news.
The battle against ‘fake news’ by our rulers is a battle against ‘real reporters’. It forbids ‘real analysis’ and anything truthful is pure poison to these people ruling us. Citizens can’t be herded from one fatal war to another unless they are first controlled by the media giants.
And so it goes: if the rulers win, we get WWIII. If they lose, at least we will have some chance of freedom and democracy. But only if citizens can vote and voting is supervised legally, not fake voting like in the last several elections. I am still amazed Trump won after all that cheating going on.
Kudos for the Hinterlands voting against the Machine. It lurks there in the dark, seething with rage. If Trump can’t bring home the jobs or stop illegal aliens flooding in and instead, lets millions of terrorist supporting aliens to travel everywhere and attack us over and over at home, Trump will be removed from power via angry voters.
Blocking voting, there is always the more violent alternatives. We shall see. I do know that my own neck of the woods is very heavily armed.
