The Butcher

VirtualReality2 Host and commentator Marc Keyser

President Trump suddenly withdraws U.S. troops from Syria giving Turkey the green light to slaughter our Kurdish allies while thousands of ISIS terrorists escape. Trump betrays our Kurdish allies, hundreds are slaughter and thousands driven out of their homes and cities, then Trump announces a cease fire… when there is none.

It’s too late. 

Children are being murdered, people slaughter, over 350,000 Kurds have been displaced. This is not a victory; this is an atrocity. This is ethnic cleansing; this is genocide.

Ret. Gen. David Petraeus speaks about US pulling troops from northern Syria. “I think we have abandoned our Syrian Kurdish partners,” says “And this does not end an endless war, it probably prolongs it because this gives ISIS an opportunity for resurgence.”

Trump’s decision to suddenly withdraw roughly 1,000 U.S. troops in northern Syria has already contributed to chaos in the region, as hundreds of Islamic State families and supporters escaped a detention camp amid fighting between the Kurds and rapidly advancing Turkish-backed forces has slaughtered and displaced thousands of Kurds.

The head of the Syrian Democratic Forces is accusing the United States of abandoning them — and has left alliance with the U.S. for Russia.

Gen. Mazloum Kobani accuses Trump of betrayal.  You are leaving us to be slaughtered. You have given up on us. You are leaving us to be slaughtered. You have nothing for us. You are not willing to protect the people, but you do not want another force to come and protect us. You have sold us. This is immoral.

I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people, of stopping these bombs falling on us or not. I need to know because if you are not, I need to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this region.”


Abandoning our Kurdish allies knowing they will be butchered by Turkish forces is mass murder… it is a crime against humanity. 

Trump Followed His Gut on Syria. Calamity Came Fastwrites David E. Sanger in the New York Times.

All the warnings were there. But President Trump’s reliance on his instincts, and his relationships, led him to ignore the consequences of a move that has emboldened Russia, Iran and the Islamic State.

President Trump’s green light to Turkey’s move to send troops deep inside Syrian territory has in only one week’s time turned into a bloody carnage, forced the abandonment of a successful five-year-long American project to keep the peace on a volatile border, and given an unanticipated victory to four American adversaries: Russia, Iran, the Syrian government, and the Islamic State.

Rarely has a presidential decision resulted so immediately in what his own party leaders have described as disastrous consequences for American allies and interests.

The drama is nowhere near over. Out of necessity, the Kurds switched sides, turning their backs on Washington and signing up with President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, a man the United States has called a war criminal for gassing his own people.

And over the weekend, State and Energy Department officials were quietly reviewing plans for evacuating roughly 50 tactical nuclear weapons that the United States had long stored, under American control, at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, about 250 miles from the Syrian border, according to two American officials.

Trump admin. is side by side w/Mother RUSSIA in vetoing a UN Security Council resolution condemning Erdogan’s invasion of Syria & attacks on our allies the Kurds. Whatever Putin is holding over Trump’s head, it must be the mother of all kompromat.

Trump’s staunches supporters in Congress are distancing themselves.

Trump apologist, Senator Lindsay Graham called Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops “shortsighted” and “irresponsible” and said abandoning the U.S.’s Kurdish allies would be “a stain on America’s honor.”

Graham hopes “abandoning the Kurds won’t come back to haunt us, ISIS won’t reemerge, and Iran will not fill the vacuum created by this decision.”

None other than Mitch (#MoscowMitch) McConnell has penned an op ed in the Washington Post saying that Trump’s withdrawal from Syria is a “grave mistake.” Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticized President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops from Syria calling the move a “grave strategic mistake” that threatens to bring “terror to our shores.”

“The combination of a U.S. pullback and the escalating Turkish-Kurdish hostilities is creating a strategic nightmare for our country.” The events have “set back the United States’ campaign against the Islamic State and other terrorists. Unless halted, our retreat will invite the brutal Assad regime in Syria and its Iranian backers to expand their influence.”

Retired Marine Gen. John Allen said: ‘There is blood on Trump’s hands for abandoning our Kurdish allies’ @CNNPolitics

What’s next? 

Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump

As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, 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!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…

This is among the Twitter ravings of the madman in the White House cloaked in the immense power of the presidency.  

Trump is not just trying to distract the nation from the shocking revelations coming daily from his impeachment investigation by betraying our allies the Kurds so Turkish forces can slaughter them.

Trump is send a message to us all. He constantly threatens the nation with violence. He will call forth his rogue militia of MAGA-KKK-neo-Nazi White Nationalists and start a “civil war” of mass shootings, mayhem and terror in the streets if we try to impeach and remove him from office. Trump will do to Americans what he has done to the Kurds.

Trump “jokes” that if people don’t vote for him in ’20, he’ll start a nuclear war saying, “we’ll all go down together!”

America needs a Revolution to overthrow the Trump regime that is undermining Democracy and endangering the world.

Trump must be removed from power. He must impeached and imprison him along with his henchmen who are part of the Republican deep state treason.

Congress, the Constitution and law cannot stop Trump. Trump can be impeached but he cannot be removed from power. 

We need to adopt a new, peaceful means of protesting that is potentially so costly to those in power it cannot be ignored.

The Resistance must enforce economic sanctions so severe that Senate Republicans are compelled to vote to impeach Trump. We must uphold the Rule of Law, stop Trump from obstructing justice, and impeach and imprison this butcher.

However, to change the minds of Senate Republicans, we must first change the rules of engagement. We need a more powerful means of communicating with those in power. We need to speak to power from a position of power with one voice and shake them to the core.

Power Protest by Phone. 

Call Bank of America in solidarity, jam their phones, disrupt business as usual, put them on hold, and send a message to Senate Republicans: Impeach Trump or lose Bank of America.

Demonstrate in front of the nearest Bank of America/Merrill Lynch to draw media attention and news coverage.

At the same time, call each bank branch. Crash their phones, obstruct business as usual, shut them down, and put the fear of God into them until Senate Republicans get the Word and see the light.

Weaponize your phone. 

There is a powerful synergy on the phones when we call Bank of America and use social media to go viral.

This is power protesting by phone. We are an overwhelming force of resistance when we peacefully call by the thousands, the hundreds of thousands, the millions to demand impeachment.

Why call Bank of America?

Because that’s where the money is. They are a key player in the shadow government that controls our government. When Bank of America speaks, Congress listens.

The donor class, the ultra-rich, the special interests that make obscene contributions to members of Congress to buy legislation will not want to lose Bank of America and risk a stock market crash.

The Resistance needs a Revolution to overthrow the Trump regime that is destroying our Democracy from within. 

In order to preserve the union and defend our Democracy, we must overthrow and destroy the Trump regime. We must impeach and imprison Trump and those who are part of this White Nationalist treason. We need to adopt a new, non-violent means of protesting that is potentially so costly to Wall Street and Washington that it cannot be ignored. We must empower People to defeat Trump and end his reign of terror. We must hold his accomplices accountable.

The Resistance must enforce economic sanctions so severe that Senate Republicans are ready to change their minds and vote to impeach Trump. We must uphold the Rule of Law, impeach this mass murder and imprison this criminally insane dictator.

However, to change the minds and hearts of Senate Republicans, we must first change the rules of engagement. We need a more powerful means of communicating with those in power. We need to speak to power from a position of power with one voice and shake them to the core.

Join the Phone Protest.

The donor class, the ultra-rich, the special interests that make obscene contributions to members of Congress to buy legislation will not want to lose Bank of America and risk a stock market crash. They will- most likely- abandon Trump for the love of Mammon. They will tell Congress to impeach the lunatic.

And we can break up Bank of America for helping to give us Donald Trump in the first place.

Someone should tell Trump that when he refers to the Kurds and the ultimate solution in the same sentence, no one can hear anything he’s saying over the echoes of historical genocide and ethnic cleansing.


Victim shaming the people he has slaughtered  

Trump betrays the Kurds – our ally in Syria in the fight against ISIS. Then says: “The Kurds are no angles.” Now he’s thanking Turkey for committing genocide against the Kurds. Trump is victim shaming our Kurdish allies that he betrayed and abandoned and left at the mercy of the Turkish armed force. Trump dares to praise Turkey for committing ethnic cleansing against the Kurds claiming, “They had to have it cleaned out.”

Trump sounds a lot like Idi Amin when he dismisses the slaughter of Kurds he is responsible for: “There is a lot of sand over there they can play with.”

The chilling echo of chemical warfare, ethnic cleansing and genocide

Multiple sources have reported that Turkish forces are dropping white phosphorus-loaded munitions in the border town of Ras al-Ayn after images and video surfaced of civilians, including children, suffering gruesome burns associated with the chemical.

Anthony Loyd, a journalist reporting for The Times of London: “Yet the terrible wounds that had all but flayed the 13-year-old Hamid Mohammed’s skin from his torso, penetrating deep into his flesh, suggested his injuries were caused by something far worse than blast alone.

“They added to the growing body of evidence that suggests Turkey, a NATO member, is using white phosphorus against Kurdish civilians in its offensive into northern Syria killing the Kurds.”

As the impeachment investigation grows and the pressure increases, Trump grows more dangerous. 

Trump might cut a deal and resign and end this nightmare; or he might not. Trump is far more likely to unleash his rogue Nazi militia to commit murder and mayhem against the American people the way he opened the door for Turkey to slaughter our Kurdish allies in Syria.

If Trump can’t win in 2020, he could incite his army of Brown-Shirt Nazis to wage a “civil war” of mass shootings, terror attacks, and mayhem in the streets, which would give him an excuse to declare martial law and cancel the elections to seize power and stay in office.

If Trump is impeached and there is an attempt to remove him from office, Trump is threatening to start a nuclear war … so “we’ll all go down together”?

The slaughter of the Kurds in Syria is a WARNING to Americans 

We must hope for the best but prepare for the worst damage Trump can inflict on this nation.

The wanton slaughter of our Kurdish allies is a WARNING: Trump is threatening  a “civil war” in the streets of America to seize power. We must act immediately. We must remove Trump from office before Trump gives the green light to his rogue militia of Nazis. We must prevent Trump from doing to Americans what he has done to the Kurds in Syria.

Mass shootings by lone Trump’s followers is a glimpse of the large-scale Shock and Awe terror attacks that could be coming if his rogue army of paramilitary-KKK-neo-Nazis unleashes terror and mayhem.

Join the Phone Protest to shutdown Bank of America and remove Trump from office…before he betrays and butchers people in Americans the way he betrayed and butchered the Kurds in Syria.
