Here We Go Again: Pelosi And Schumer Claim Turkey Cease Fire is a Sham

Partisan politicians like Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer should refrain from commenting on foreign policy decisions. They have an agenda pure and straightforward, and cannot be depended upon to provide unbiased opinions.

The agreement presented by Vice President Mike Pence “seriously undermines the credibility of America’s foreign policy and sends a dangerous message to our allies and adversaries alike that our word cannot be trusted. President Erdogan has given up nothing, and President Trump has given him everything,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a statement.

It seems to me that the agreement between the United States and Turkey on a pause in Ankara’s offensive against the Kurds just blew the Democrat’s original narrative up in smoke.

Some update; the brilliant Professor Hanson has shed light on the Kurd-Turkey problem that has been muddled by the MSM and politicians who pontificate far from the real bullets. Most of us are too lazy to do the necessary research to fully understand problems that develop in the Middle East and the role of European and American governments in that locale. It is always good to have all the facts before concluding!!

Negotiations would ever happen only if our troops stayed.

Trump saw the situation differently. As beautifully laid out by Sundance at Conservative Treehouse, removing our guys would leave the intransigent Turks vulnerable to an alliance against them of their many enemies in the region. This thought didn’t occur to Turkish president Recep Erdoğan, who at first seemed delighted that we were leaving and promptly dispatched his troops into Syria, as everybody had predicted he would.

American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson reports that ABC News was so appalled that it ran footage from a Kentucky gun range video, called it the Turkish invasion, and heaped abuse on Trump for atrocities committed against Kurds. Even the usually level-headed Andrew Malcolm took the president severely to task for abandoning our Kurdish allies. George Conway, who has never had a good word to say about the president, styles the troop withdrawal a blunder of historic proportions.

Not so fast, fellas.

The actual result hasn’t been quite what everyone expected. Erdoğan suddenly understood the box he was in when Trump authorized Treasury Secretary Mnuchin to prepare sanctions against Turkey. By themselves, sanctions haven’t succeeded much in that part of the world. But in concert with the departure of the U.S., they became a scary signal that Turkey was all by her lonesome. Having steadfastly refused to negotiate, Erdoğan now nervously rang up Trump and asked for an emergency conference. Trump sent Vice President Pence and national security adviser O’Brien to mediate negotiations with the Kurds.

These are the long-sought negotiations, brought about by U.S. troops leaving.

Only Donald Trump saw it — just as only Trump got North Korea to the table, forced the Chinese to play fair, and got the Mexicans to handle the immigrant caravans on our southern border.

President Trump once again exhibits strategic insight not seen in the White House since George Washington.

Schumer, Pelosi, and Rep. Adam Schiff disagree with everything the administration does. They do act like third rate politicians and are the ones hurting our country. The cease-fire is great. The Dems are the ‘sham’, not President Trump. MSM bullcrap like this is why we are divided because these so-called ‘journalists are nothing more than political hacks misinforming Americans daily to also try to derail the efforts by a great President.

Swallow your pride, admit you’ve been outsmarted by an outsider and work to better OUR country.

  • Wow. Pelosi and Schumer told a lie. I would be far more shocked if anyone could come up with an example of either one of them speaking the truth - about anything.

  • What is with all the arm waving and hand gestures by politicians these days? I suppose they do it to add emphasis. But I find it annoying.

  • Two people in high offices in our government desperately hoping that things go wrong for our country so they can blame our President. If this was 200 years ago, they would be shot. The least they deserve is to lose the election.

  • Spot on. But never look to Pelosi or Schumer to do anything for the good of our country, they only do what they perceive to be good for them. Our forefathers would have had them shot for treason. Not a bad Idea in reality.

  • Hopefully more American's will see the light when the Barr report comes out. The democrats and the MSM are the enemy nothing will change until they are destroyed. Trump loves America and fights for us everyday. One good example of how bad it is Biden's get caught in dirt deals and they want to impeach President Trump not it. Get out and vote to make a change.

  • All of you that are still soreheads becouse a non politician won and will win again remember this old saying pride comes before a fall.in your case its what keeps you hanging on every lie that Pelosi and nadler and cortez and Schumer ate feeding you .we need to keep politicians out of office. Make all politicians ambassador and send them all overseas where they cant destroy our constitution or our country

  • We ate being censored by someone on this page .a friend of mi e just posted a comment 5 minutes ago and now it is not here .what gives.the Democrats are that afraid of the truth .that's ok tje truth will come out about their power grab trying to overthrow the president and the peoples choice .keep ot up and you will see how long you have a job. Vote trump 2020 .swallow your pride you dumb Democrats. As long as you associate with clinton and Obama the 2 traitors that need to be in jail for life .if abuse of power is impeachable offense then why wasn't Obama impeached, his abuse of power was more serious than any other President. Forcing obamacare on people that voted against it took one of our freedoms. Tje freedom of choice so prosecute him and leave Trump alone. Build the wall stop the guns gangbangers blackmarket human trafficking and other criminals from coming to this country.
