Former Presidents John McCain and Lindsey Graham Call For Airstrikes On Syria

John McCain ran for president in 2008. He lost so badly that Indiana voted for Obama. Lindsey Graham ran for president in 2016. He got 0 percent of the vote:

“Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham on Thursday called for an international force to ground Syria’s air force following an alleged chemical weapon attack by the regime of President Bashar Assad.

They said Assad’s air force is responsible for chemical weapon attacks and the U.S. military and its allies could disable it “quickly, precisely, decisively” and control any escalation of hostilities.

“The United States should lead an international coalition to ground Assad’s air force,” McCain and Graham said in a joint statement Thursday. “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.” …”

You would think the GOP would have received the message.

President Trump has spent the last three years running against a neocon foreign policy. We all voted for Trump because we didn’t want a Syrian war and Syrian refugees. Now, we are still getting Syrian refugees anyway and Trump is being stampeded into a new war in Syria:

“(CNN)President Donald Trump has told some members of Congress that he is considering military action in Syria in retaliation for this week’s chemical attack, and recognizes the seriousness of the situation, a source familiar with the calls tells CNN.

The source said the President had not firmly decided to go ahead with it but said he was discussing possible actions with Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Trump is relying on the judgment of Mattis, according to the source. …”

Steve Bannon has been demoted from the National Security Council and replaced by Rick Perry. Trump is surrounded by generals, warmongering neocons, True Cons, #NeverTrumpers and Wall Street insiders. Jared Kushner is whispering in his ear and telling him to betray his base.

It’s not looking good, folks.

  1. I would feel better if the majority would return to whispers of rebellion, prepping and anger. A liberal Yankee was never gonna right this country. The deep state took less than 100 days to get Trump to play ball.

    • Trump isn’t a liberal Yankee. He’s a very tough, battle tested White New Yorker. This is a very good breed. Tough Italian Americans are also excellent.

      • Trump is a Manhattan playboy who is the poster boy for NYC values, never been in battle (dodged draft) and please don’t compare him to all the hard working guineas I grew up wih.

        • Trump’s never been in a battle?

          I ‘m sorry but what planet do you live on – cause I don’t think it’s the one I’m on planet earth!

          Trump just won the most impressive political American battle since the end of World War II!

          Trump took on the entire Republican Cuckservative establishment the entire media with the exception of Russia Today and our Alt Right Blogs, he took on the tops of all the top tax exempt church, Trump told the Liberation Theology Pope Francis to “shut up” and Donald Trump basically took on 85% of the world wide Jewish elite in Hollywood, Wall Street and Trump

          Donald Trump won!

          Auto workers in Michigan Teamsters Union White guys and their wives love Trump for fighting for them.

          Again I ask….

          What planet do you live on?


      • I voted for the guy simply because of his anti PC. I never believed and still do not believe that he can change this corrupt government of ours. Even if he wants to. I’ve been around long enough to remember the 80’s and 90’s when Trump took sides with the mongural rapist Mike Tyson. So I have a bit of disgust for the man…So I may be biased.

  2. Please make those Phone calls and e-mails to your US Congressman, US Senators, talk to junior level staff members. Be polite. Try to engage in a back and forth conversation. I’m having solid success.

    We beat back ~ 8 illegal alien amnesties this way. Don’t bother writing letters or reading post cards, no one reads them.

    If you aren’t banned from Facebook yet – I’m banned, please post solid, Alti Right, America First, Pat Buchanan “We told you so” short tweets, blogs.

    I always have good luck showing photos of healthy, attractive Russian women tennis players and compare them to the nastiest ISIS terrorists.

    The Russians and Assad are fighting ISIS.

    Why would we want to take ISIS’ side?

    Are we *$&*# Crazy?

    • If tried to convince atheists about the inspiration of the Bible, your job would much more easier.

      • Disagree. I think regular Red State enthusiasm for these endless Neo Con wars has gone way down. Plus Red State Whites must be beyond sick of Lib Left Jew Media going on and on about Russian conspiracies.

  3. Can’t anyone do a good public relations contact campaign to contact South Carolina White state representatives?

    These White Southerners in once the most Confederate state of South Carolina can’t really support Lisping Lindsey Graham – a flaming faggot who supports open borders immigration and endless wars against the Russians.

    What the #*$&@ is wrong with South Carolina?

  4. If this is a war, we’re losing badly – because of Trump’s stupidity or betrayal, or both.

    He is en route to being the worst President of the 45, even worse than Buchanan and W.

    You wanted fascism? Here it is!

    • Shut up.

      It’s just one day and Trump said something foolish.

      The key is all our enemies still hate President Trump. Don’t join our enemies and hate President Trump.

      • Look at the big picture.

        You think this is just “one thing” that Trump said?

        One little misstep on the path to glory?

  5. Look at it this way Gorsuch will be confirmed. Primary goal of 2016 campaign for the SP. Go back to gardening and lawn service.Military is for experts.

  6. I’ve been sending a flurry of tweets to Trump about this. Including MANY of his own tweets from back in 2013 when he said, “Stay out of Syria” himself. I hope he sees everything all of us send him, cause I am seeing a LOT of his base sending the same things. If he goes against his base on this, his base will NOT vote for him again. He will be with those two “Cucks” who have never been for him. Sad.

    • It looks as if he has sold out. His previous tweets show he knows what is really going on.

      He couldn’t even holdout for 100 days.

  7. I’ve thought all along that Trump was maybe a means to an end, a step in the right direction in a country that badly needed it, not somebody that was going to fix all the problems that have taken decades to build up.

  8. Never Trumpers……………………….1
    Trump’s Base…………………………..0

  9. The surest sign of what a Trump Administration ought not do is be contemplating any policy recommendation by these two…
