Donald Trump carried out Syria missile strike ‘after being convinced by daughter Ivanka’

What I think we know about the American missile attack on Shayrat Air Base is that Trump advisor Steve Bannon was against it.

So who convinced Trump to do an abrupt about face and veer off his stated policy of noninvolvement in foreign conflicts?

I can think of several possibilities:

1. The generals who surround Trump. Mad Dog Mattis comes to mind.

2. Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. Both are neocon globalists whose positions are at odds with Trump’s campaign promises.

3. Trump was never sincere about his intentions regarding overseas conflicts. That’s unlikely since he has a long, long track record of opposition to American involvement in foreign wars. Or perhaps he was sincere, but being mercurial, simply changed his mind. Perhaps he wants the world to see him as a tough guy.

4. Unknown actors are blackmailing Trump by threatening his family, a sex scandal, or criminal acts (taxes, etc.) that could lead to his impeachment and possibly imprisonment.

Media stories have focused on Jared Kushner’s increasing sway over Trump. Now, we have a new story that implicates First Daughter Ivanka.

DONALD Trump’s decision to rain down 59 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian air base was sparked by his daughter Ivanka’s “heartbroken” response to Assad’s chemical attack, insiders have claimed.

Trump has long opposed military intervention in Syria – both as a private citizen when he criticised Obama’s intervention in the region, and as President.

But the Republican firebrand is believed to have made his dramatic U-turn after being convinced by his daughter Ivanka’s impassioned response to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons on Tuesday.

A source close to the first family said: “Increasingly, Ivanka is having more and more influence over her father.

“She often counsels her father and was very clear that action needed to be taken against Assad in some form.”

“Ivanka was infuriated over the lack of a direct response in the immediate aftermath of the Syrian attack.”

Responding the morning after Assad’s attack, The President’s eldest daughter tweeted: “Heartbroken and outraged by the images coming out of Syria following the atrocious chemical attack today.

Following her comments, the President’s stance on a military response began to shift, quickly claiming the attack was an “affront to humanity” and blasting Assad’s “heinous” actions.

And the following day, hours before launching a flurry of 2,900lb missiles into the country, the President had shifted from isolation to intervention.

He said: “I think what Assad did is terrible.

“I think what happened in Syria is a disgrace to humanity and he’s there, and I guess he’s running things, so something should happen

I guess this is plausible. Trump is a father who seems to like pleasing his children. But honestly, do we want Ivanka Trump designing shoes and handbags or designing American foreign policy.

I know my answer.

Bring on the high heels.

Nigel Farage turns on Donald Trump after US airstrikes on Syria

Britain’s nationalist UKIP party former leader and Trump supporter Nigel Farage is questioning the military action taken by President Donald Trump on Thursday night.

The title of this post is a small exaggeration. It’s word for word the title of the Metro article, which I think sensationalizes Nigel’s reaction. Read the piece and judge for yourself.

metro.co.uk

Nigel Farage has turned on ally Donald Trump following the US airstrikes in Syria.

Overnight, the President approved the launch of 60 US Tomahawk missiles, which hit the Shayrat air base in south east Homs.

Trump’s attack was in response to a chemical attack earlier this week in which killed at least 72 people and injured many more.

Sources on the ground including humanitarian organisations and US and Russian forces claim the Syrian government are behind the suspected sarin nerve agent attack, though associates of Assad have denied the allegations.

Sounding doubtful of his ally, Farage has said he thinks Trump’s actions will leave his supporters confused.

The former Ukip leader said: ‘I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying “where will it all end?”

‘As a firm Trump supporter, I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I’m surprised. Whatever Assad’s sins, he is secular.’

Farage also urged Britain not to get involved in any further strikes.

He added: ‘Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better.’

Trump’s airstrikes in Syria have put considerable strain on US and Russain relations.

President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the attack ‘aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law’.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow is suspending the memorandum with the US to prevent incidents and ensure flight safety.

If you start seriously looking around at the Twitter accounts and other websites that are frequented by Trump supporters, you’ll find a similar or even stronger backlash against Trump’s military action in Syria.

Stefan Molyneaux expresses skepticism about Trump’s actions.

Video: Weev Defends Trump

The legendary Weev takes 7 minutes out of his life in exile to advise former Trump supporters to chill.

From the youtube information box:

Published on Apr 7, 2017

just chill for a minute seriously what is wrong with you people, you’re acting like 40 year old childless single women here

Some comments on the defense of Trump:

It’s sad to see all the Trumpenproles throwing him to the wolves, despite the fact that he told the Russians (and that means they told the Syrians) that he would be doing this. Best case scenario: He did it to misdirect the hysterical warmongers in the media and the deep state, nipping the hysteria in the bud, while also taking Putin’s temperature to see what he would do.

Weev is such a Jew. He looks like Alan Ginsberg…and now he is defending attacking Assad! Sorry but we love Assad, we put up with Trump. And don’t worry Weev, if u wanna defend creating Greater Israel for your tribe, you will be doing it all alone. Assad is our red line.

kek, weev is now the voice of reason. I’m still pretty blackpilled though 😦

My defense for freaking out on social media is that i see it as a strategic thing. We are signalling to the White House that we don’t want another war. Everyone should pretend to overreact just a little bit. There is nothing wrong with showing the world, and Trump, where we stand in all of this. The bombings could turn out to be an insignificant event, but we should always take every opportunity to signal against wars for Israel.

This is Alt-Right virtue signalling and i think it’s goddamn beautiful fam.

As you can see the commenters disagree, but anyone who follows Weev knows the score.

So, what’s next?

The big headline on Drudge is the Russian warship steaming toward Syria. Big deal! Warships are always steaming to someplace. Read more on that story at Fox News

Senator John McCain A Traitor? Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

Putting this detailed excerpt from an even longer detailed article with numerous links into perspective is not difficult.

1. Evidence suggests that rebel forces, not the Syrian government, killed people in a possible chemical attack earlier this week.

2. Evidence further implicates American Senator John McCain in orchestrating the attack for his own personal financial gain.

3. President Donald Trump’s abrupt policy shift toward Syria and his use of military force was based on flawed information–a so-called false flag.

Zerohedge

The April 4th, 2017 incident at Khan Sheikhoun has provoked an emotional response around the world after images began to emerge showing civilian adults and children apparently suffering from the effects of chemical weapons. President Donald Trump has stated that the attack has totally changed his views towards the Syrian civil war, and may alter his intended strategy there.

Although Western media immediately accused Bashar al-Assad of participating in a gas attack against his own people, the evidence indicates that the intended target was not immediately in a civilian area and was in fact a location where Syrian White Helmets were on the scene with rebel groups at what observers have claimed was a storage facility for conventional and chemical munitions. Additionally, evidence indicates that rebel groups may have had prior knowledge of the attack and knew that there was a risk of chemical weapons being unleashed. The attack also came in the aftermath of a trip by Senator John McCain to meet with groups known to associate with radical jihadist factions in Syria, at a time when the United States government has been engulfed in a power struggle between different political factions who disagree strongly over what should be appropriate policy in regards to the Syrian civil war.

Prominent Alt-Right Figures Withdraw Their Support for Trump Following Syrian Missile Attack

The preferred method that Trump supporters use to express their views is Twitter. I’ve collected Tweets condemning and/or rejecting support for President Donald Trump by prominent alt-right and conservative figures. Baked Alaska, Mike Cernovich, David Duke, Richard Spencer and a host of others have spoken in 140 characters.

It’s entirely possible that President Trump lost half his base of support Thursday night. I’m disgusted, but still on the Trump train.

McCain and Graham Emerge Sickeningly Triumphant

This one may be easier to read than the Tweets. The two disgusting Israeli agents/warmongers want a lot more from President Trump.

Senator John McCain’s Office

STATEMENT BY McCAIN & GRAHAM ON THE NEED FOR ACTION IN SYRIA
Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released the following statement today on the need for action in Syria:

“We agree with the President that Assad has crossed a line with his latest use of chemical weapons. The message from the United States must be that this will not stand. We must show that no foreign power can or will protect Assad now. He must pay a punitive cost for this horrific attack.

“In addition to other measures, the United States should lead an international coalition to ground Assad’s air force. This capability provides Assad a strategic advantage in his brutal slaughter of innocent civilians, both through the use of chemical weapons as well as barrel bombs, which kill far more men, women and children on a daily basis. The U.S. military, together with our allies and partners, has the capability to achieve this objective quickly, precisely, decisively, and in ways that control escalation. Ultimately, the grounding of Assad’s air force can and should be part of a new comprehensive strategy to end the conflict in Syria.

“This is a test of the new administration, but also for our entire country. Assad is trying to see what he can get away with. The rest of the region and the world is also watching to see how our country will respond, and what that means for them. There is plenty that Democrats and Republicans in Washington disagree on. But in this instance, we must show the world that we are still capable of putting aside our differences and doing the right thing. If the President is willing to take the necessary action, he deserves broad bipartisan support, and we will help build it.”

Both of these clowns know that the gas attack blamed on Assad was the work of the CIA and Israel’s Mossad. McCain probably helped coordinate it, the murdering bastard.

Breaking Report: No Russian Casualties from Trump’s Missile Attack on Syrian Air Base

No Syrian casualties either, according to this Tweet that was retweeted by Mike Cernovich.

Speculation is running rampant that Trump warned Putin the missile attack was coming, which resulted in evacuation of the Shayrat Air Base. Click on the above Tweet to read the speculations.

So, exactly what is a Tomahawk missile?

The Statesman

The United States launched roughly 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles from two ships in the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday, targeting an air base in Syria following a chemical attack allegedly ordered by Syrian President Bashar Assad that struck civilians in rebel-held areas of his country.

The missiles were launched against an air base some 25 miles south of Homs, Syria. The base is small, and one U.S. official said that 50 Tomahawk missiles would do “significant” damage to the facility.

Tomahawk missiles are highly accurate weapons. The modern version was first used by the United States in the 1991 Gulf War.
Here’s what you need to know about Tomahawk missiles:
What are they?

Tomahawk missiles are subsonic, jet engine-powered missiles. They fly low, about 100 feet off the ground.
Where are they launched from?

Tomahawks can be launched from many surfaces, but the U.S. generally uses ships or submarines to launch the missiles.
How much do they cost?

Each missile cost $1.41 million.

Who makes them?

Raytheon Systems Company makes the Tomahawk Block IV.

How fast can they fly?

The missiles travel at 550 miles per hour.

How big are they?

The Tomahawk is a 20-foot-long missile, and weighs 2,900 pounds. It has a wingspan of eight feet, nine inches. It carries a 1,000-pound-class warhead.

How accurate are they?

According to the Navy, they hit their target about 85 percent of the time.

How do they find their target?

The missile uses a system called “Terrain Contour Matching.” An altimeter along with an inertia detector direct the Tomahawk along a flight path against a pre-loaded map of the terrain. They are unlike drones as they are not guided by pilots on the ground. According to Raytheon, “The latest variant (Tomahawk Block IV) includes a two-way satellite data-link that enables the missile to be retargeted in flight to preprogrammed, alternate targets. The Block IV design was initiated as both a cost savings and a capability improvement effort.”

Is the United States the only country with cruise missiles?

No. More than 70 nations have cruise missiles.

One final note in this post. One unconfirmed report I saw on Twitter said that the Russians had shot down many of the missiles before they reached their target. That possibility helps explain the lack of casualties.

Please remember that this is a developing story, subject to reinterpretation as new information is released.
