After President Trump & Putin Finally Meet … After 2 Hours the US and Russia Reach Syria Cease-Fire Deal
THIS IS WHAT UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE …
It is what everyone was anticipating from the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, the meeting between American President Donald J. Trump and Russian President Putin. Following a 2 hours meeting between President Trump and Putin in which many important topics were discussed, agreement was reached Friday on a cease-fire in southwest Syria. According to the AP, the cease-fire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time.
The United States and Russia struck an agreement Friday on a cease-fire in southwest Syria, crowning President Donald Trump’s first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is the first U.S.-Russian effort under Trump’s presidency to stem Syria’s six-year civil war.
The cease-fire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time, according to U.S. officials and the Jordanian government, which is also involved in the deal.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who accompanied Trump in his meeting with Putin, said the understanding is designed to reduce violence in an area of Syria near Jordan’s border that is critical to the U.S. ally’s security.
It’s a “very complicated part of the Syrian battlefield,” Tillerson told reporters after the U.S. and Russian leaders met for more than 2 hours on the sidelines of a global summit in Hamburg, Germany.
Of the agreement, he said, “I think this is our first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.”
From The Washington Examiner:
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin sat down Friday for more than two hours at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, for their first face-to-face meeting since Trump took office.
“Putin and I have been discussing various things, and I think it has gone very well,” Trump said before their lengthy conversation began.
“We’ve had some very, very good talks. We’re going to have a talk now, and obviously, that will continue,” Trump said ahead of the meeting, which had been scheduled to last just 30 minutes. “But we look forward to a lot of very positive things happening for Russia, for the United States and for everybody concerned and it’s an honor to be with you.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson joined Trump for the closed-door meeting. Putin brought his foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, to the meeting as well.
Sadly, all the whiners on the LEFT can bitch about is the fact that Trump said it was an honor to meet Putin.
Trump, a Republican who called it an “honor” to meet with the Russian president, drew swift criticism from Democrats at home, who accused him of dismissing U.S. intelligence and giving Putin’s denial, reiterated on Friday, of Russian interference too much weight.
#Lying Crooked Hillary: Debate Moderators Let Hillary Slide When Her ‘Syrian Red Line’ Fact Check Claims Turned Out to be False
EVEN UPON FACT CHECKING OF TRUMP’S COMMENT … HILLARY CLINTON IS A LIAR!!!
Make no mistake about it America, Hillary Clinton is a liar. She has been, is currently and forever will be incapable of telling the truth. Why, because no one holds her accountable or to any standard. Take the second 2016 Presidential debate where even the moderators refused to call her out on her lie. During the debate, Donald trump stated that Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when President Barack Obama drew the dubious and so-called Syrian “line in the sand” ultimatum. However, Clinton was quick to say that it needed to be fact checked and go to her website, where of course one could get a bunch of Hillary Clinton mind-dumb, Kool-Aid drinking zombies lying for Hillary. Guess what, according to actual Fact Checking, Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State when Obama drew the co-called line. But guess what, the moderators sat on their hands and said nothing, even Martha Raddatz who is supposed to be a Middle East expert and knew damn well that Clinton was Secretary of State when the comment was made. But she certainly had no problem confronting and at times debating Donald Trump during the debate. Hmm, imagine that?
Is this what you want America, the most dishonest and corrupt candidate ever to run for the Oval Office to be President of the United States?
Politifact weighed in, calling the statement “mostly false” based on the following timeline:
- August, 2012: President Obama makes the “red line” comment for the first time.
- December, 2012: Secretary of State Clinton reiterates the term at a summit in Prague, amid rumors that Assad is moving chemical weapons in preparation for attacks.
- January, 2013: Secretary of State Clinton brings up the “red line” again, this time in an interview.
- February, 2013: Clinton steps down as Secretary of State.
- August, 2013: White House announces that they have “assessed with high confidence” that Syria has used chemical weapons, crossing the “red line.”
Donald Trump delivers a Foreign Policy speech at Youngstown State University on 8/15/16.
If you have not already seen the video, please make sure to watch Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech below. Don’t let the media tell you what to think, watch what he said and listen, really listen. How can it possibly be considered extreme to want to protect America from radical Islamic terrorism? But that is what the liberal MSM would have you believe. It is Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton through their inaction and head in the sand mentality that has brought you ISIS. After all, it was Obama who when asked about ISIS, called them the JV. Who is not qualified to the president and does not take their job serious? Sadly the in the tank for Hillary Clinton media will trash his speech when nothing about it is extreme. We are in serious times where people are looking to end the West’s way of life and culture, it is not a president’s duty to protect the United States and the US Constitution?
Trump stated we need extreme vetting for those that would look to immigrate to the United States from countries that harbor terrorism. Wow, what a novel concept MSM. I would dare say any vetting would be required as I doubt very much that the Obama administration does little to none. A note to Democrats, liberals, the MSM and Hillary Clinton, we have no obligation to allow people into the US, especially those that would not look to assimilate to the American culture. What made America great is that we were a Melting Pot, not a country made up of illegals and immigrants who wanted no part of melting into America society.
We will defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism, just as we have defeated every threat we have faced in every age before.
But we will not defeat it with closed eyes, or silenced voices.
Anyone who cannot name our enemy, is not fit to lead this country. Anyone who cannot condemn the hatred, oppression and violence of Radical Islam lacks the moral clarity to serve as our President.
The rise of ISIS is the direct result of policy decisions made by President Obama and Secretary Clinton.
As the Middle East was cast into total turmoil as Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the Clinton’s made millions.
With one episode of bad judgment after another, Hillary Clinton’s policies launched ISIS onto the world.
Yet, as she threw the Middle East into violent turmoil, things turned out well for her. The Clintons made almost $60 million in gross income while she was Secretary of State.
Incident after incident proves again and again: Hillary Clinton lacks the judgement, the temperament and the moral character to lead this nation. Importantly, she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS, and all the many adversaries we face – not only in terrorism, but in trade and every other challenge we must confront to turn this country around.
Thank you. It is great to be with you this afternoon.
Today we begin a conversation about how to Make America Safe Again.
In the 20th Century, the United States defeated Fascism, Nazism, and Communism.
Now, a different threat challenges our world: Radical Islamic Terrorism.
This summer, there has been an ISIS attack launched outside the war zones of the Middle East every 84 hours.
Here, in America, we have seen one brutal attack after another.
13 were murdered, and 38 wounded, in the assault on Ft. Hood.
The Boston Marathon Bombing wounded and maimed 264 people, and ultimately left five dead – including 2 police officers.
In Chattanooga, Tennessee, five unarmed marines were shot and killed at a military recruiting center.
Last December, 14 innocent Americans were gunned down at an office party in San Bernardino, another 22 were injured.
In June, 49 Americans were executed at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, and another 53 were injured. It was the worst mass shooting in our history, and the worst attack on the LGTBQ community in our history.
In Europe, we have seen the same carnage and bloodshed inflicted upon our closest allies.
Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, is now flush with $150 billion in cash released by the United States – plus another $400 million in ransom. Worst of all, the Nuclear deal puts Iran, the number one state sponsor of Radical Islamic Terrorism, on a path to nuclear weapons.
In short, the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has unleashed ISIS, destabilized the Middle East, and put the nation of Iran – which chants ‘Death to America’ – in a dominant position of regional power and, in fact, aspiring to be a dominant world power.
It all began in 2009 with what has become known as President Obama’s global ‘Apology Tour.’
In a series of speeches, President Obama described America as “arrogant,” “dismissive” “derisive” and a “colonial power.” He informed other countries that he would be speaking up about America’s “past errors.” He pledged that we would no longer be a “senior partner,” that “sought to dictate our terms.” He lectured CIA officers of the need to acknowledge their mistakes, and described Guantanamo Bay as a “rallying cry for our enemies.”
Perhaps no speech was more misguided than President Obama’s speech to the Muslim World delivered in Cairo, Egypt, in 2009.

HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?
What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.
The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.
Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.
“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.
“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
Folk Singer James Twyman Travels to Syria and Hopes Peace Concert for ISIS Will Win Over Terror Group
HMM, WHY DO I THINK THAT ISIS WON’T BE AS RECEPTIVE?
Despite warning from the State Department, folk singer James Twyman, of Portland, Oregon, plans to travel to Syria next week and perform a concert for ISIS. Twyman says that he believes he can soften the hearts of these fundamental Islamists who make a living out of beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children and killing their fellow Muslims. We may want to add liberal, moonbat folk singers to the list as well.
Oh my, how do we think this is going to end? Can you say, no well. The only think that might prevent this misguided individual from having his head cut off by ISIS is the fact that they might be laughing so hard. To think that Twyman believe “kumbaya” songs will soften these savages, might be just as insane as the ideology of ISIS itself.
James Twyman: Be the Change
An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger.
James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told FoxNews.com he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children.
“It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world sing and pray for peace at the same time. “When people come together and focus on something in a positive way…there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”
The author and self-styled “Peace Troubadour” has put traditional prayers from various faiths to song. Twyman performed in Baghdad in the late 1990s after Operation Desert Storm; in Bosnia and Croatia during the Balkan War in 1995 and has even performed previously in Syria to spread his message of peace through song.
Twyman leaves Jan. 20, and plans to stop in Italy before heading to Israel. From there, he will then cross over the northern border shared with Syria to a small Druze village.
While that village, Majdal Shams, is occupied by Israel, Twyman said he has contacts there trying to set up a venue in ISIS-controlled territory. Either way, the show is set for Jan. 31.
We wish him well, but why do I fell this might be the last concert that this folk singer will ever be performing? It would appear that JWF thinks this might be his farewell tour as well.
