Trump’s First Military Strike Kills Dozens of Innocent Civilians

The Independent reports that President Trump’s first strike on terrorists killed at least 30 civilians including 10 women and children:

“Why kill children? This is the new [US] administration – it’s very sad, a big crime,” Nasser Al-Awlaki said. “[Nora] was hit with a bullet in her neck and suffered for two hours.” The Pentagon did not refer to any civilian casualties in its statement.

A U.S. Navy Seal was also killed in the attack:

The Pentagon did not say how the team’s one death occurred, and the U.S. military official declined to give details on the fatality.

President Obama was not sure the strike’s benefits would outweigh its rewards:

Obama administration aides had deliberated extensively over the proposed operation, weighing the value of any information that might be recovered against the risk to the Special Operations forces plunging into hostile territory. But administration officials ultimately opted to hand the decision on the mission to their successors.

Contrast a president who deliberated a long time before making a decision–who considered all the factors before executing a plan–with a president who does not want to sit and think things through. He wants to bomb first and ask questions later, regardless of who dies.

Trump Delusions About Inauguration Crowd

The day after he was inaugurated with record low turn out to his party, Trump called in the head of the National Park Service to complain about the fact that the Park Service could not find any photos which showed big crowds for Trump in DC . . . this of course was because nobody showed up.

In a Saturday phone call, Trump personally ordered Reynolds to produce additional photographs of the previous day’s crowds on the Mall, according to three individuals who have knowledge of the conversation. The president believed that the photos might prove that the media had lied in reporting that attendance had been no better than average.

Little snowflake Trump had his feelings hurt.  He is very delusional.

Trump Draft Executive Order Deletes Easy Visa Process for Visitors from Close Allies

The headline was that Trump may be proposing a “Muslim ban” on refugees from certain countries.  The draft order, however, would also suspend “the Visa Interview Waiver Program — a system under which people renewing some kinds of US visas, or children or the elderly do not need to appear in person for an interview.”

That means that our friends from New Zealand and Australia, among others, would no longer be given easy access to visitor’s visas, and could even be subject to interrogation:

. . . . the suspension of the Visa Interview Waiver Programme would make life more difficult for some New Zealanders who did have work or other visas for the US — meaning they would no longer be able to renew them electronically or by mail and would instead have to travel to the US consulate in Auckland for an interview.

Some of our friends from Australia are not taking this easily:

Trump Lies, Says 3 Million Illegal Votes in 2016 . . . But “Zero” of them Went to Him

Trump is repeating his delusional lie, obviously a racist attack against immigrants, that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election.  Of those millions, Trump has made up another lie by saying that not one of those millions of made up fantasy votes were for him.

There were four documented cases of voter fraud in 2016.  Three of the four were Trump supporters.

Something even more obscene?   Trump’s chief strategist, treasury secretary, daughter,  and son in law are all registered to vote in two states.  

Voter fraud only counts if you don’t have white skin. 

Edward Snowden, Russian Patsy

Edward Snowden tweeted that “2016 is a choice between Donald Trump and Goldman Sachs.”  Of course he deleted it after Trump installed 6 Goldman executives in his administration and his CIA director called for Snowden’s execution, and Trump called for “dealing” with Snowden as a traitor.

Enjoy those Moscow winters, Eddie!
