BREAKING: The Syrian Democratic Forces officially confirm they are letting Assad's troops into their territory in a bid to stop the Turkish onslaught.

Mr. President, there is a mass catastrophe in Syria involving our staunch allies in the fight against ISIS. Families are being displaced. Children are dying. A Kurdish mother holds her lifeless toddler. ISIS terrorists are escaping. This slaughter will NOT advance world peace.

Rudy took Lev Parnas to the funeral of former President George H. W. Bush as his "guest".

‘The Kurds Are Officially Ready to Partner With Assad and Putin’ - commander of the #SDF writes; “The forces that I command are now dedicated to protecting one-third of #Syria against an invasion by #Turkey and its jihadi mercenaries.”

Trump goes after Fox News' Chris Wallace after Shep Smith

“Russia’s fingerprints seem to appear on every controversial foreign-policy decision undertaken by President Trump... Even Russian experts are amazed at the damage Trump is willfully inflicting.”

Just as the US steps back in Syria in what amounts to a gift to Russia and others, a remarkable @nytimes investigation shows Russia committing war crimes there: "12 Hours. 4 Syrian Hospitals Bombed. One Culprit: Russia."

Times Square Right now: Massive rally to support Trump’s immediate impeachment

Dear Secretary @stevenmnuchin1: You are lying, again. @realDonaldTrump REPEATEDLY asked China for dirt on Biden, including in a PRIVATE PHONE CALL with Xi. And the White House does not deny the contents of that phone call. Defend Trump if you want. But stop lying to us.

Kurds are being murdered and beheaded in the streets. A refugee crises is exploding. ISIS is regrouping. And the so called president is golfing. Get this incompetent traitor out of office.

Why Russia bomb Syrian hospitals but not ISIS prison?

The most powerful country in the world has been reduced to “monitoring” events.

Long overdue to give up fiction that Erdogan’s Turkey is an ally in practice. US should withdraw all nuclear weapons, reduce reliance on Turkey’s bases, and restrict intelligence sharing and arms sales. Should also articulate red lines in Syria.

A real President would reverse course; a real Vice President would ask--beg--him to; a real SecState would be building options; and a real SecDef would be showing what can be done immediately with assets on ground. By screaming conspiracy & feigning helplessness, it's on them.

Trump-enabled war crimes.

Buttigieg on Syria: I'm "hearing from soldiers who feel they have lost their honor over this, who feel they are unable to look allies in the eye ... If you take away a soldier's honor, you might as well go after their body armor next. That's what the Commander-in-Chief is doing."

President Trump's capitulation to Erdogan over Syria is an unmitigated disaster and may lead to a resurgence of ISIS. Trump's impulsive decision to withdraw our forces and betray our Kurdish allies has done incalculable damage to our national security and standing in the world.

North-Press reporter: Deployment of the Syrian Governmental Forces on the outskirts of Manbij city in preparation for their entry

Now might be a good time to ask Erdogan about all the ISIS fighters he trained in Turkey and sent into Syria during the middle of the night. “Lights out“ was a call over the radio used to stand down Turkish border guards; letting trucks filled with fighters pass by unchecked.

New from @RichardEngel on #MTP: "In a very disturbing development, U.S. officials tell us those same militia, the ones that include al Qaeda and ISIS members ... are advancing close to U.S. forces."

SDF Kurds: "We've stuck to our side of the bargain...Our allies guaranteed our protection, after we destroyed our trenches & fortifications, to allay what they called 'Turkey's fears.' But our allies... abandoned us...This a stab in the back.

BREAKING: Secretary of Defense @EsperDoD tells @margbrennan the U.S. will be withdrawing 1000 troops from northern Syria.

“Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan is now dictating terms to the American president.”

“Coming nearly 12 years after his last state visit to the UAE, Putin’s visit to Abu Dhabi on Tuesday is being hailed as a turning point in the relationship between the two countries.”

Exclusive: Giuliani associate linked to Yanukovich's stolen cash Kislin purchased a Cypriot shell co. holding part of $1.5bn hoard of cash & bonds Ukrainian courts identified in 2015 as stolen by former president,Yanukovich, before he fled Ukraine in 2014.

Just a reminder Bill Barr’s Dad Donald Barr was nicknamed ‘Chester the Molester’ when he taught at The Hackley School. That was after he was fired from Dalton along with Jeffrey Espstein (who he hired w/o a college degree) Donald Barr also wrote novels about alien sex slaves.

49,000 GM workers have been on strike for almost 5 weeks. They sacrificed when GM needed cash, but it's been making big profits and GM won't share. We're in solidarity with GM workers. But where's the national press?

This is very bad news for Trump & Republicans, as Sondland is reportedly planning to testify that there was a quid pro quo — a manufactured statement from Ukraine’s government that would damage Biden in order to get a White House visit. Utterly corrupt.

This tweet “vividly captures” @marcorubio justification of the crude vulgarian he devotedly supports for reelection as president.

Pope Francis appeals for a new effort at dialogue after U.S. forces pulled back from northeastern Syria, clearing the way for Turkey's offensive against Syrian Kurds there.

Pompeo wouldn’t tell Nashville reporter whether he met with Giuliani in Warsaw earlier this year. Instead the Secretary of State berated the reporter.

What kind of person could actually give an order to have millions of people killed, executed,running in fear & for their lives- men, women, children, elderly - and then go do a rally praising himself & then go play golf?

SCOOP: TRUMP had lunch today at his @TrumpGolfDC course in Va. with RUDY GIULIANI. The lunch came less than 1 day after we revealed that prosecutors are investigating @RudyGiuliani for possible FARA violations related to his Ukraine efforts for @POTUS.

Kurdish forces are now turning to Russia for help. This is exactly what Putin wanted and President Trump gave it to him on his birthday. What say you now, @LindseyGrahamSC, @RandPaul, @marcorubio, @senatemajldr?

If Trump is not Putin's puppet, then why did he open the door for the Kurds to make a deal with the Russians for protection against a NATO ally?

The FBI lays it all out, "These allegations are not about some technicality, a civil violation or an error on a form. This investigation is about corrupt behavior. Deliberate law-breaking. The FBI takes the obligation to tackle corruption seriously."

Trump’s Abrupt Shifts in Middle East Unnerve U.S. Allies "not just because it was a betrayal of a loyal partner. What alarmed them even more was his sheer unpredictability."

Now there is definitive proof that Russian warplanes bombed 4 Syrian hospitals (just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the Kremlin's war crimes in Syria), Trump should again be pressed on his ongoing support for Putin. Republicans in Congress should, too.

News agency Reuters reports the Kurdish-led administration in northern Syria says 785 people affiliated with I.S. have escaped the Ain Issa camp following shelling by Turkey

You can go ahead and send those moving vans to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.

Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime.

This speech at Notre Dame was one of the worst speeches ever given by an Attorney General. No respect for traditional American values, including diverse religious traditions; no respect for the Constitution. Demagoguery. Bottom feeding
