Where to now for ISIS? 7.11.2019 The Moderate Voice

It was no surprise last week to watch our Orange Leader crowing at the podium and boasting how he personally helped killed Ibrahim al Baghdadi: “We moved very, very quickly.” Did you ? How about that! But let’s leave the president’s early-Alzheimer’s (there’s a good medical argument for this: another article) inflected psychopathy aside to […]

Bozell & Graham Column: Media Can't Stand Trump Winning, Ever 30.10.2019 NewsBusters
The successful U.S. military campaign to bring swift justice to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is clearly a big, big victory for America. Rather than surrender, the world’s most wanted terrorist tugged on a suicide vest and blew himself to pieces. He made sure the blast killed his three children, too. The media coverage could be easily predicted. Straight news has disappeared. Absolutely everything needs to be put through a political ...
Scarborough Compares 'Un-American' Trump to Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi 30.10.2019 NewsBusters
Not surprisingly, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough found plenty to complain about in President Trump’s speech announcing the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, Scarborough complained about how "the President of the United States went on talking about how Baghdadi died like a ‘dog, a coward...whimpering and sniveling.’” According to Scarborough, President Trump’s word choice made him sound more like two late Middle Eastern dictators than the President of the United ...
NY Times Grumbles Over ISIS Leader’s Death: ‘Largely in Spite of...Mr. Trump’s Actions' 29.10.2019 NewsBusters
The New York Times petulantly refused to grant President Trump any credit for the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, who died in a U.S. raid in Northwest Syria. David Sanger’s Monday “news analysis,” “Strategies Spurned by Trump Led to Triumph in Operation.” The online subhead read: “The president cast the death of the ISIS leader as validation of his disengagement strategy. But it required intelligence agencies and allies he has ...
Syria is still a bewildering mess — with or without the US 29.10.2019 Raw Story
Time was, conflict in the Middle East was complicated. Trump changed all that. Given the betrayal of the Kurds as a result of the abrupt withdrawal of U.S. troops, ISIS prisoners on the loose and an alleged ceasefire with Turkish-funded fighter-bombers and jihadis that’s been shaky at best, one thing’s been clear: The mess in […]
David Cay Johnston on Trump’s lying, crazy, self-absorbed weekend 28.10.2019 Raw Story
That Donald Trump is manifestly unfit to be president, and cannot be trusted with national security secrets, was on full display Sunday morning. What should have been a simple but triumphant announcement on the death of a dangerous man, the ideological leader of ISIS, became a display of Trump’s sick mind. It also showed that […]
Donald J. Trump: A graceless boor — even in victory 28.10.2019 Raw Story
The announcement that U.S. commandos targeted and killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, founder and leader of ISIS, was welcome news, of course. Removal of the terrorist leader, plus retrieval of documents and plans, calls for congratulations. That Donald Trump would make it a star turn for himself was, well, expected. It’s a legitimate accomplishment, by others, […]

Trump said Baghdadi death is bigger than the death of Osama bin Laden — but general called it absurd 28.10.2019 Raw Story

Trump Whines: My Murder Of A Terrorist Leader Is BIGGER Than Obama's 27.10.2019 Crooks Liars
There are two main themes that run through Donald Trump's entire Presidency*: Complete and utter fealty to Vladimir Putin and Russia The gnawing emptiness of knowing he will never be as smart, respected or beloved as President Barack Obama. He continues to try to undo everything President Obama did, claim victories for Obama's successes (the booming economy is a huge one) and boast that he is doing bigger, better and more amazing things than ANY PRESIDENT* before him. Today was no different. Trump repeatedly tried to claim that Baghdadi's death was bigger than Osama Bin Laden, who was killed under President Barack Obama in 2011. Trump whined: “This is the biggest one perhaps that we’ve ever captured....This is the biggest there is. This is the worst ever. Osama bin Laden was big, but Osama bin Laden became big with the World Trade Center. This is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, a country." If Trump had just gone out and read the written statement, taken a few questions and left the ...
