Pentagon Just Announced One Major Thing Missing From Trump’s Military parade – Here’s Why…

Published

on

President Donald Trump once requested that the United States host a military parade to pay tribute to the hard-working soldiers and staff who defend the great country of America. Trump’s request is very close to being put in place as the details are worked out, and the plans are underway. The Pentagon recently announced the military parade and it was noting something that would be missing.

While many people criticize President Trump’s decision and need for a military parade, there are millions of others who think it’s a wonderful idea and a great way to honor and pay tribute to the brave men and women who enlist in the military to protect our country and freedom. President Trump may have wanted an all-out parade to showcase what great powers our military has, but he’s going to be asked to settle for something a bit less than desired. The Pentagon announcement has stated that there will be many items on display, but that the parade will not include tanks. The military parade will not involve tanks because the military does not want to cause damage to the infrastructure of the location in which the parade is being held. For example, some tanks are so massive that just rolling over the sidewalk curb, or parts of the outdoor area could ultimately damage them. Then the location would be forced to repair the damaged area, which will cost taxpayers additional money.

The Pentagon is ready to go on with a parade, but President Trump will have to settle for vehicles on wheels and maybe a few aircraft. This information comes from a memo that was obtained by NBC News, who provides more coverage on the announcement: “The event will include “no tanks,” but it will play host to “a heavy air component at the end of the parade, to include older aircraft as available,” the memo states. The route will be from the White House to the U.S. Capitol Building.

As previously reported, the parade is to take place in November — on Veterans Day to be specific — and it “will focus on the contributions of our Veterans throughout the history of the U.S. Military, starting from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 to today, with an emphasis on the price of freedom,” according to the memo.

The parade “will integrate with the annual D.C. Veteran’s Day Parade,” and will also “highlight the evolution of women Veterans formations in World War II to today’s integrated formations,” the memo states.

The cost of the parade, however, remains unclear.

Critics have largely panned the idea since Trump proposed it earlier this year, worrying that it would be a display of authoritarianism, carry a hefty price tag — tens of millions of dollars by some estimates — and damage the roads in Washington D.C.

The memo says only aircraft and “wheeled vehicles” will be used — no tanks — to “minimize damage to local infrastructure.”

Many criticize the parade and state that it will cost taxpayers money. However, events like this often generate money with people coming in, stores and restaurants being filled with customers, and it generally all works out very well when the event is over. For every penny spent on the parade, there will be plenty of money spent by consumers who purchase items, and it will also be a great time to bring people together in a patriotic event and tribute to our American military units.

Many Americans would gladly visit the Military parade and make it into a fun-filled day for family and friends. Parades in America are a fun event that many people attend to spend the morning or afternoon with family and friends. It’s just a fun day watching things go by. Kids love them and cheer for things that go by.  A military parade will be very cool as onlookers get to see things that were used, or could have been used, in real military action. All of this while being patriotic, loving your country, and paying tribute to the men and women who serve, and have served, in this great American military.

There will probably be a few protesters because President Trump can’t seem to please everyone, but local law enforcement will likely handle them, or they might even get pushed away by those in attendance. People who still protest President Trump have not been following the timeline of his presidency, nor have noticed the positive changes done by his administration. The #Resist movement consists of people who are part of the problem instead of being part of the solution that works in a bipartisan manner to serve America in the best way possible. The #Resist movement whines when they could be discussing relevant topics with people on the other side of politics.

Working together for change is always better than working against the other half of the country.

Let’s hope that a fun day at the parade is another way to unite people instead of pitting them against each other.

Rosie O’Donnell Sinks To New Low And Viciously Mocks Sarah Huckabee Sanders: ‘Lying Sack Of S***’

It’s clear hatred and disdain

Published

on

Hollywood entertainer Rosie O’Donnell is known for her long-standing feud with President Trump but also for her liberal views.

However, instead of attacking President Trump this time around she has decided to attack his Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And it does not look pretty.

On Friday, O’Donnell took to social media to post an unattractive and unflattering picture she created of Sarah Huckabee Sanders

If you follow O’Donnell on her Twitter page you will notice an array of colorful yet negative pictures of President Trump. All of which insinuate a clear hatred and disdain for the man that is our President.

When being interviewed by the Daily Beast regarding why she chooses to paint these pictures and share them on social media she said,

“I’m doing it for my OCD [obsessive-compulsive disorder] and my anxiety, because I feel so powerless and helpless. I’m not trying to raise money specifically. I’m trying to, like, get it out of me. It’s not like I set out with ‘I’m gonna ruin him by making $100,000!’ I didn’t think that…I can’t help what comes out of me. I don’t sit there at home and think, ‘How can I get that bastard? Let me paint his picture!’ My anxiety takes over.”

She has opened up her own Etsy shop to sell these paintings for profit. O’Donnell names anything from “Lunatic Trump”, to, “the Moron”, to “Criminal.” While the original acrylics are not for sail the digital images she created on her own iPad Pro are. They range from $100-$300 for any given one. Most sell very quickly, with the originals going within just three hours. The profits she says go to candidates and causes that are anti-Trump.

Bustle reported,

“O’Donnell indicated on Etsy that the first batch of her prints made $1,200, and pledged to send a check for $2,500 to anti-gun violence organization Everytown for Gun Safety. Other organizations to which O’Donnell has pledged to send the proceeds from her prints include Planned Parenthood, gun control groups resisting the NRA, and LGBTQ organizations — in other words, “501-C3’s that [Trump] hates.”

Although O’Donnell has been vocal in her opposition to the Trump administration, she told The Daily Beast that she initially started making these portraits as a coping mechanism for her OCD and anxiety — and not as a way to make money. Nonetheless, O’Donnell has been relentless in her criticism of Trump, both online and off, and this criticism predates his presidency by a decade.

In 2006, when O’Donnell was a co-host of The View, Trump threatened to sue her after she criticized him on-air. At the time, O’Donnell described Trump as a “snake-oil salesman on Little House on the Prairie,” denounced his extramarital affairs, and went so far as to suggest that he was bankrupt. In the years since then, Trump has described O’Donnell as “a true loser,” “crude,” “obnoxious,” “dumb,” and “rude,” and has leveled a number of other insults against her.

O’Donnell, meanwhile, protested Trump outside the White House last February, and has accused the president of “treason.” She has also accused Trump of being a “child rapist,” tweeted a game that allowed social media users to push Trump off a cliff repeatedly, and has frequently referred to him as a “sexual predator.” (Trump has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women, but he denies the allegations.)

That isn’t even the full extent of O’Donnell’s resistance efforts. In an interview with The Daily Beast, O’Donnell said that she attempted to “offer herself to the Clinton campaign,” on the basis that she had a “decade of experience” going head to head with Trump. Hillary Clinton’s campaign reportedly did not act on O’Donnell’s offer, leading her to seek another avenue to cope with Trump’s election. This is what led her down the path to painting acrylics of the now-president.”

O’Donnell said she would only produce these prints of Trump until he is no longer president — whether the end of his presidency comes about through impeachment, resignation, or a loss in his likely campaign for a second term in 2020. “Til [sic] Trump is out I will keep making these,” O’Donnell wrote on Etsy.”

If her horrid pictures of President Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are not enough to show you what her true character is, then consider the developing news story on one of her former producers who she employed on her show.

A woman known as Jill Blackstone who was a producer for the Rosie O’Donnell Show was recently arrested in Baltimore, Maryland in connection with the murder of her sister who was partially blind and deaf. Currently, she is dealing with the potential of extradition to Los Angeles, California where the murder allegedly took place on 2015.

Law enforcement officials are saying that she allegedly drugged her sister and then put her in her garage with three dogs and proceeded to set it on fire. Which means if convicted she would also be guilty of arson. She was arrested at John Hopkins Hospital when receiving treatment for an unknown illness.

When O’Donnell isn’t busy employing murderers, she is busy drawing disgusting pictures of the leaders of this current White House administration and denigrating the office in which they hold. All factors and variables which speak to her character, or lack of it.

Vladimir Putin Brands Syria Air Strikes An ‘Act Of Aggression’ As Russia Warns Of ‘Consequences’ Over Bombing Raids

Putin denounced it

Published

on

The recent air strikes against Syria undertaken by the Trump administration have been dominating headlines over the past day.

Congressional Democrats have been chastising the President for what they say is circumventing their rule of law while Congressional Republicans have applauded the administration for taking action in response to crimes against humanity.

However, one person and entity, in particular, that is not happy regarding these air strikes is Vladimir Putin and Russia.

The Russian Ambassador to the United States publicly stated that the bombings were an insult to the President and Vladimir Putin denounced it all together.

However, what Russia is forgetting is that the air strikes were undertaken by not just the United States but Great Britain and France as well.

Over 100 airstrikes were launched in a onetime shot in the early morning.

The Sun reported,

“General Joseph Dunford confirmed three targets had been struck at a Pentagon briefing shortly after Trump’s announcement.

These include a scientific research facility in Damascus, which is allegedly linked to the production of chemical and biological weapons, a chemical weapons storage close to Homs and a chemical weapons equipment storage site and command post, also near Homs.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson described the airstrikes as “highly successful” and said no personnel had been injured. 

Theresa May said there was ‘no practicable alternative to the use of force’ after Donald Trump announced the retaliation to reports of chemical attacks which killed 75 men, women and children.

Russian ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter: “A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened.

We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

“Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissable. The US – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.”

Theresa May has today defended her decision to launch the Syrian airstrikes – and insisted it sent a message to the world’s tyrants that they cannot use chemical weapons. Speaking in 10 Downing Street this morning, the Prime Minister said: “This was not about interfering in a civil war and it was not about regime change.

“It was a limited, targeted and effected strike with clear boundaries that fought to avoid escalation and did everything possible to avoid civilian casualties.

This collective action sends a clear message that the international community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons.”

“We cannot allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised – either in Syria, on the streets of the UK, or elsewhere. “The lesson of history is when the global rules and standards that keep us safe come under attack, we must continue to defend them.”

During a press conference, Mrs May defended her decision to launch strikes without holding a vote in the Commons – but revealed she will make a statement in Parliament on Monday to allow MPs to question her.

Russian President Vladimir Putin branded the US-led effort in Syria an “act of aggression” that will exacerbate humanitarian catastrophe.

In a statement issued by the Kremlin, the Russian leader says Moscow is calling an emergency meeting of the United Nations’ Security Council over the strike launched by the US, Britain and France.

Putin added that the strike had a “destructive influence on the entire system of international relations.”

He reaffirmed Russia’s view that a purported chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma that prompted the strike was a fake.

Putin added that Russian military experts who inspected Douma found no trace of the attack.

He criticised the US and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the international chemical weapons watchdog to visit the area.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has also branded the attacks “crimes” and Britain, the US and France “criminals”.

He told Iranian television: “US allies will not gain any achievements from crimes in Syria.

“Attacking Syria is a crime. US President, UK Prime Minister and the president of France are criminals.”

Iran is one of Assad’s closest allies. But US President Donald Trump has sent a stern message to both Iran and Russia amid fears the rising tensions could lead to World War Three.

Trump said: “What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children. “No nation can succeed by promoting rogue states and dictators.””

While American officials have said they are unaware of civilian casualties due to the air strikes Syrian government officials have said there are three.

Syrian officials also argued that their air-defense system engaged with the United States, but American officials deny this as well.

It is very quickly becoming a game of he said he said in the battle against these two countries.

Another result of the air strikes is Russia’s request for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

They will all meet at 11:00 AM over what Russia has quantified as, “aggressive actions of the United States and its allies.”

If current tension is any indication of what is to come the world is in for a wild ride.

No Good Democrats Blast Trump For Attacking Syria After He Did Not Seek Approval From Them

Congressional Democrats have indicated their opinion that the President’s actions authorizing strikes against Syria are unconstitutional

Published

on

The hottest news over the past few days has been President Trump ordering air strikes against Syria which is currently ruled by Bashar-al-Assad and his regime.

Assad came under fire last year for ordering a chemical weapons attack against his own people that left many women and especially children mortally wounded.

Now Congressional Democrats are pissed off at President Trump for his recent orders and they are making him aware.

Congressional Democrats have indicated their opinion that the President’s actions authorizing strikes against Syria are unconstitutional and an attempt to circumvent the authority of Congress.

Moreover, they are questioning his strategy in dealing with Syria. Whereas many Republicans are applauding the Presidents move.

Senator Tim Kaine from Virginia, who formerly ran for Vice President under the presidential ticket of Hillary Clinton, made it clear he believes the Presidents actions are illegal going as far as to say,

“President Trump’s decision to launch airstrikes against the Syrian government without Congress’s approval is illegal and — absent a broader strategy.

Today, it’s a strike on Syria — what’s going to stop him from bombing Iran or North Korea next?

The last thing Congress should be doing is giving this president a blank check to wage war against anyone, anywhere.”

While House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California argued that due to the brutal and inhumane nature of the war crimes perpetrated by Syria it requires a smarter and more calculated response.

She further argued that the President needed to present a far more comprehensive strategy for how he plans to deal with Syria to Congress so that he can gain their approval.

NBC News reported,

“Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., tweeted that it was the same as when Trump struck Syria last year without congressional approval. “What changed? Zero,” Swalwell tweeted. “They’re still using chemical weapons. This is the result of a failure to have a strategy and engage Middle East countries to solve this problem.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, “A pinpointed, limited action to punish and hopefully deter Assad from doing this again is appropriate, but the administration has to be careful about not getting us into a greater and more involved war in Syria.”

The president announced in an address to the nation from the White House that U.S. airstrikes, in tandem with the United Kingdom and France, were underway in Syria, in response to an alleged chemical attack near Damascus last weekend.”

At a later Pentagon briefing, Defense Secretary James Mattis said that the president had the authority to launch the strikes under Article II of the Constitution because Mattis said Trump was defending U.S. interests.

Key Republicans on Capitol Hill said Friday night that they supported Trump’s decision.

“The United States has taken decisive action in coordination with our allies,” said Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who said at his weekly news conference Thursday that he believed that Trump had authority to act against Syria with any new congressional approval.

“We are united in our resolve that Assad’s barbaric use of chemical weapons cannot go unanswered. His regime’s unconscionable brutality against innocent civilians cannot be tolerated.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he supports “both the action and the objective.” “I applaud the president for taking military action against the Assad regime for its latest use of chemical weapons, and for signaling his resolve to do so again if these heinous attacks continue,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Of note was Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., who faces a tough re-election fight against Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott, and who backed Trump’s response to Syria, tweeting, “I support the attack because Assad must be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons.””

Regardless of what Congressional Members think the President had a press conference on the attack and detailed why he took the actions he took and what he plans to do.

President Trump emphasized that he completed the attack in conjunction with the French and British military. This was following weeks upon weeks of potential threats of retaliation over the chemical attacks on civilians.

The Pentagon announced that at the order of the President a total of 105 missiles were launched and that they successfully hit every target.

Furthermore, that the allies took every measure and caution necessary to minimize civilian death and to hit the intended military targets.

They noted that at this time they are unaware of any civilian casualties at this time.

However, Syrian state television refuted this statement arguing that three civilians were wounded in the city of Homs after several missiles hit the area and were later intercepted by the air-defense systems of Syria.

But, this is refuted as well because the director of the Joint Staff, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie argued that the missiles involved in the operation were not at all engaged either positively or negatively by Syrian air defenses.

CNN reported,

“Syrian armed forces said in a statement, however, that the country’s defense systems “intercepted most of the missiles, but some hit targets including the Research Center in Barzeh,” a suburb of Damascus.

Russian Army Colonel Gen. Sergey Rudskoy put a number to the claim, telling reporters that 71 of the cruise missiles were intercepted by Syria’s air defense systems.

“It proves high efficiency of the Syrian armament and professional skills of the Syrian servicemen trained by the Russian specialists,” Rudskoy said at a Ministry of Defense media briefing.

“Over the last 18 months, Russia has completely recovered the Syrian air defense systems, and continues its development.”

The Pentagon assessed that nerve agents were present in the Barzah research center and that the Syrian regime employed about 40 surface-to-air missiles, but those launches occurred after the last impact of the US and its allies’ strike. White also said Russia has begun a disinformation campaign on the situation.

“There has been a 2000 percent increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours,” White said.

“Therefore, we will keep you all abreast of the facts moving forward.” Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday night that the US was expecting a disinformation campaign by those aligned with the Assad regime.”

It remains to be seen whether Syria will respond to the United States attacks yet. As of right now Syrian ally Russia has called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council and it is no doubt for reasons related to the rising tensions between Syria and the United States.
