Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

The Syria strikes will become another item in the bill of impeachment the liberals propose after they take the House of Representatives in November.

The strikes were limited and ineffective. They make America look weak.

Make no mistake: Syria is a problem, but only because of its Russian and Iranian backers. Syria is part of Russia’s “Red Jihad” strategy. That being said, the military strikes against “Assad regime targets” in Syria will have no lasting impact. The Russians can easily resupply the Syrians. 

If President Trump wants to take out the Assad regime, or strike chemical weapons there, he should get the approval of Congress. He did not.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said, “As our commander in chief, the president has the authority under Article II of the Constitution to use military force overseas to defend important U.S. national interests. The United States has an important national interest in averting a worsening humanitarian catastrophe in Syria, and specifically deterring the use and proliferation of chemical weapons.”

Article II actually says: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States… 

The phrase “when called into the actual Service of the United States…” means when Congress authorizes military action.  The president can order military action on his own, but only if Americans lives are threatened.

Admittedly, Trump was left a mess by Obama.

If the allies are correct that Syria recently used chemical weapons, it’s more proof that former President Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry lied. Remember that President Obama had declared that “American diplomacy, backed by the threat of force, is why Syria’s chemical weapons are being eliminated.” Later, Secretary of State John Kerry had declared, “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out.”

Order Red Jihad here

At the time, the Times ran a story by Michael R. Gordon under the headline, “U.S. and Russia Reach Deal to Destroy Syria’s Chemical Arms.” It began: “The United States and Russia reached a sweeping agreement on Saturday that called for Syria’s arsenal of chemical weapons to be removed or destroyed by the middle of 2014 and indefinitely stalled the prospect of American airstrikes.”
Those airstrikes had been threatened by Obama.

The Times said the agreement, titled “Framework for Elimination of Syrian Chemical Weapons,” called for the “complete elimination of all chemical weapons material and equipment” during the first half of 2014. There doesn’t seem to be any “nuance” in that report. The phrase “complete elimination” is self-explanatory.

Here are some other references from the “Framework for Elimination of Syrian Chemical Weapons:”

  • Syria will submit “a comprehensive listing, including names, types, and quantities of its chemical weapons agents, types of munitions, and location and form of storage, production, and research and development facilities.”
  • “We set ambitious goals for the removal and destruction of all categories of CW related materials and equipment” (emphasis added).

The Kerry quote, “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out,” was uttered on the July 20th, 2014 edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

My friends, we don’t know for sure who used the chemical weapons, or why. But we know the Syrians and Russians have such weapons.

What we also know for sure is that Obama and Kerry made a flawed deal with Russia that was supposed to eliminate them.

As I wrote at the time, Obama’s policy was more than a failure. It was a carefully crafted lie, concocted with the collaboration of the Russians, which was designed to deceive the American people into believing that the weapons had been eliminated.

This is why you need our books on Obama, Comrade Obama Unmasked and Red Star Rising.
