20191017: Pence Ceasefire in Turkey

We have a great deal of video and press attention surrounding events in Syria/Turkey, etc. We can dump all the video and discussion here, one place.

Here is the Pence Presser in Ankara, with Pompeo.

A few minutes later, the President landed in Dallas and congratulated the Pence team in Turkey, A GREAT DAY for the USA, Turkey, Syria, and reminded everyone, a little bit of tough love was necessary. Hair-on-fire Dems and NeverTrumpers are left, aghast. Trump keeps winning.

Here’s the letter from Dad!!!!!

    1. Me too —- we KNEW something was going on. We KNEW the Dems screeching and NeverTrumpers jumping up and down made no sense.
      And the reporting in theatre was awful, incorrect, lazy.
      Once again, Trump wins.
      Everyone rattling their saber, Trump said fine — go after it.
      Wow, did they all change their tune,.

  1. Thats the kind of letter that every public area should post so that everyone can see what leadership is like and oh yeah he went there. No wonder piglosi walked out. POTUS WINS AGAIN and she didnt want to be a part of it.

  2. Once again Nancy Pelosi has led Congress into voting to condemn President Trump for one of his great decisions. And once again they jumped the shark. Had they only waited one day, they would have avoided wasting time and good will bashing The President for something that turned out exceedingly well.

    Had Nancy only waited a day, she wouldn’t have had egg on her face the way she did a few weeks ago when she called for an impeachment inquest on the grounds the whistleblower’s testimony was accurate, which the next day we found out it wasn’t.

    I think President Trump was right when he said Nancy has some very deep seated mental issues.

When the real thing happens, they know EXACTLY what to do, without letting fear and poor decision making control them.

        2. UC Davis has a Department of Viticulture and Enology that was founded in 1935. It has been a world leader in advancing the science of winemaking ( https://wineserver.ucdavis.edu/about/timeline ).

          That said, there have been some embarrassments — any technology, after all, can be used for both good and ill. There was a scandal in, IIRC, the 1970s, where certain Gallo jug wines (e.g. “Hearty Burgundy”) were found to not contain any actual grape juice. The technology existed in the heads of some UC Davis graduates to create this Frankenwein…..and the technology existed in UC Davis labs to uncover the subterfuge.

          Recognized varietals (e.g. Merlot), must be at least 75% of the named grape (unless the species is Vitis labrusca — uncommonly used for wine — which must be 51%. About the only Vitis labrusca grape I’ve seen used to make wine is the Concord).

  7. Daughn your killing me 😉! I was starting to put tomorrow’s news roundup together. You beat me to it. Here is what I was going to include on this topic.

    The look on VP Pence’s face throughout these two clips said everything. The POS Erdogan was given an offer he couldn’t refuse.

    Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a joint press conference following discussions with President Recep Erdogan of Turkey. The Turks invasion of Syria and regional conflict with Kurdish forces are the primary issue.

    From the article linked above:

    Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that the United States and Turkey had agreed on a Turkish cease-fire in Syria, days after the country’s forces launched an offensive in northern Syria.
    “It will be a pause in military operations for 120 hours while the United States facilitates the withdrawal of the YPG from the affected areas in the safe zone. And once that is completed, Turkey has agreed to a permanent cease fire,” Pence said alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Ankara, Turkey.
    Pence said that the agreement entails no further U.S. sanctions on Turkey. Once the permanent cease fire is in effect, the U.S. sanctions imposed on Monday in retaliation for the country’s incursion will be withdrawn, he said.
    “The agreement today, first, ends the violence, which is what President Trump sent us here to do,” Pence said. “We have also achieved an opportunity, by working with YPG to move out of the area, to create more peace and security and stability in that buffer zone.”

    The announcement came after Pence and Pompeo met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Pence said that negotiations lasted more than five hours with Erdogan and his team.

    “TOUGH LOVE” according to our Lion!

      Except that’s too kind by a thousand times.

      What Hussein did was to actively disrupt and destroy everything he could, in every situation, foreign and domestic. The gas pedal was always to the floor, creating fires and pouring accelerate on them.

      He was Trashcan Man.

      His mission was to destroy America from the highest office in the land, and it was obvious from the beginning.

      Every single thing he did SINCE the beginning was confirmation.

      The only thing I can think of that broke the pattern was the supposed killing of Obama Bin Laden.

      Who may have been dead for years at that point, whose body we never saw, and who was conveniently buried at sea.

      Or so we’re told, by the most corrupt administration in the history of America.

      It never made sense that Hussein would even try to kill Bin Laden in the first place.

      It’s like Satan doing a good deed.

      Or a Kenyan member of Al Qaeda, committing fratricide.

              Probably not even enough for the Secret Service to pay him a visit. I’m pretty sure any ‘threat’ would have to be a lot more direct versus implied, where the reader has to connect the dots.

              And APPARENTLY in the age of Trump, even a direct threat has to be considered ‘credible’, which Tom Arnold (and Kathy Griffin, and a hundred others like them) are not.

  14. This whole thing seemed like it was too quick and worked out too easily for it not to have been planned in advance to work out exactly as it did.

    I’ll probably miss a couple steps, and they’re not necessarily in the right order, but look at the series of events:

    1) DJT writes a hilarious letter to Erdogan, guaranteed to trigger and provoke Erdogan (or at least look that way) and trigger every anti-Tumper / NeverTrumper on the planet

    2) DJT announces we’re withdrawing 28 or 26 men from Syria

    3) DJT, in language that would be right at home in WWF Championship Wrestling, announces to the world that “if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!) “, which again is guaranteed to trigger and provoke every Trump-hater on the planet (and make Trump supporters laugh out loud 🤣 )

    4) Erdogan (supposedly) defies DJT perfectly and with abundant enthusiasm… rushing in head first… knowing that DJT doesn’t bluff

    5) Piglosi and the Dems, and the Skunk-RINOs like Romney and lots of others, immediately expose themselves by condemning Orange Man and announcing that the sky is, in fact, falling

    6) DJT announces previously mentioned sanctions

    7) Erdogan slams on the brakes, goes full reverse, calls before the last ‘s’ in “sanctions” passes Mnuchin’s lips, announces a ceasefire, and begs DJT to mediate peace talks

    8) Disaster is once again narrowly averted, and DJT solves another unsolvable problem in under a week

    9) Ta-da!

    How is that sequence of events possible, without the ‘fix’ being in?

    This is a Mexican Federal Police officer on the scene, armed to the teeth. They had helicopter gunships overhead.

    The cartel gunmen were utterly vulnerable. There were at least a dozen killed, and several of their gun trucks were knocked out.

    Why would the government give in?

    Well, I’ve read that the current president is taking a “softer” approach.

    That means he’s been bought off.
