Doing his master’s bidding, David Cameron is ready to push for UK airstrikes in Syria to take on ISIS

The British government has seemingly taken a step towards expanding its aerial bombing campaign against ISIL into Syria, after defense secretary Michael Fallon described the UK’s current strategy as “illogical.”

The west’s fixation on removing Assad and getting an energy pipeline built from Qatar to Europe, via Syria, (so as to permanently cut Russia out of the European market) knows no end.

Kerry almost took the US to war on fake YouTube videos of chemical attacks nearly two years ago if not for Putin’s brilliant intervention.

Plan B was quickly activated, as ISIS (the American funded and trained radicals) was unleashed on Syria.

Unfortunately the group started to take a life of its own, and like an out of control Frankenstein monster, started gobbling up large swaths of Iraqi land.

Now its on to Plan C, served up by none other than America’s number one colony, and favorite poodle, David Cameron.

Remember that the UK has been here before, and going against Cameron’s wishes, UK MPs voted down Cameron’s request to bomb Assad in 2013.

Now we have ISIS on the loose and a recent beach side terror attack in Tunisia, which took the lives of some 13 UK tourists. Things have changed on the surface, even though the overarching goal under it all remains the same…get Assad out and start construction.

In what has been interpreted as a sign that Prime Minister David Cameron may be willing to discuss with MPs the possibility of expanding the campaign from Iraq into Syria, Mr Fallon raised questions about the effectiveness of the current approach during an interview with BBC Radio 4.

“We’ve always been clear that ISIL has to be defeated in both Syria and Iraq. We have plenty to do in Iraq. Each member of the coalition is doing different things. ISIL is organized and directed and administered from Syria. There is an illogicality about not being able to do it.”
PM Calls for ‘Full Spectrum’ Approach to ISIL

While the PM last year won support from MPs to carry out air strikes in Iraq, the recent Tunisia terror attack has led to Cameron calling for a “full spectrum” response to ISIL, with suggestions it may include an aerial bombing campaign in Syria.

“It is a new parliament and MPs will want to think very carefully about how we best deal with ISIL. [There is an] illogicality [with] ISIL not respecting the border lines; they don’t differentiate between Syria and Iraq, they’re establishing this evil caliphate across both countries. There is no legal bar to us operating in Syria but we don’t have the parliamentary approval for it,” Fallon said.

The defense secretary pointed out that if direct links can be drawn between the Tunisian attack and ISIL it would increase calls for the bombing of strategic targets in Syria.

“If we can link it back, [if] it does link directly back to ISIL in Syria then we will have to reflect with the rest of the coalition how best we deal with that.”

Despite governmental enthusiasm for expanding the aerial bombing campaign into Syria, large sections of the British public and political establishment are unwilling to commit to more overseas operations, particularly given the fallout of the UK’s Iraq intervention of 2003.

In August 2013 David Cameron was somewhat embarrassingly defeated in a House of Commons vote over participating in military strikes in Syria, following allegations Bashar al-Assad’s forces used chemical weapons while fighting against rebel groups.

The unwillingness to intervene in Syria was once again demonstrated last year, when Cameron stopped short of trying to win approval of expanding air strikes to targets in Syria following objections from the Labour party.

However, it’s thought the prime minister may be willing to test the waters on how the public and MPs feel about expanding military action to Syria in light of the recent Tunisia attack.

Despite calls for more expansive action, some critics have argued that the US-led coalition’s strategy against ISIL is ultimately flawed, and that a UK aerial expansion into Syria will not be effective in overcoming the campaign’s shortfalls.

Many say that air strikes alone will not be enough to contain the group, while experts have also been highly critical of the capabilities of local Iraqi and rebel forces in tackling ISIL’s well-organized units.

Defense analyst Anthony Tucker-Jones told Sputnik that the lack of ground troops limits the impact of air strikes.

“Fundamentally what we’ve got in Syria is no real political will for intervention there, which leaves the highly porous Syrian border with Iraq open to Islamic State influence. There are air strikes and drone strikes going on, but they’re nowhere near sufficient enough to close the border.”

Reflecting the unwillingness of many Britons to expand their military operations in the Middle East, Mr Tucker-Jones said western powers have a history of failing to implement adequate programs to promote peace following military interventions.

“There seems to be this sort of willful neglect of the outcome of any military operation. So often western powers intervene with the view to bringing a short-term conflict to an end, but then they don’t have any viable strategies to deal with what was to come after.”

ABC’s Ted Koppel admits mainstream media bias against Trump [Video]

The mainstream news media has traded informing the public for indoctrinating them, but the change got called out by an “old-school” journo.

Seraphim Hanisch

Fox News reported on March 19th that one of America’s most well-known TV news anchors, Ted Koppel, noted that the once-great media outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post, have indeed traded journalistic excellence for hit pieces for political purposes. While political opinions in the mainstream press are certainly within the purview of any publication, this sort of writing can hardly be classified as “news” but as “Opinion” or more widely known, “Op-Ed.”

We have two videos on this. The first is the original clip showing the full statement that Mr. Koppel gave. It is illuminating, to say the least:

Tucker Carlson and Brit Hume, a former colleague of Mr. Koppel, added their comments on this admission in this second short video piece, shown here.

There are probably a number of people who have watched this two-year onslaught of slander and wondered why there cannot be a law preventing this sort of misleading reporting. Well, Russia passed a law to stop it, hitting dishonest media outlets in their pocketbook. It is a smart law because it does not advocate imprisonment for bad actors in the media, but it does fine them.

Going to prison for reporting “the truth” looks very noble. Having to pay out of pocket for it is not so exciting.

Newsmax and Louder with Crowder both reported on this as well.

This situation of dishonest media has led to an astonishing 77% distrust rating among Americans of their news media, this statistic being reported by Politico in 2018. This represents a nearly diametric reversal in trust from the 72% trust rating the country’s news viewers gave their news outlets in 1972. These statistics come from Gallup polls taken through the years.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was aboard USC official’s yacht in Bahamas when mom was charged

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was spending spring break on a University of Southern California official’s yacht when her mother was accused Tuesday of involvement in a college admissions scheme, reports said.

Giannulli, 19, was on Rick Caruso’s luxury yacht Invictus in the Bahamas, a report said. Caruso is chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees.

Giannulli, who currently attends USC, was with Caruso’s daughter Gianna and several other friends, the outlet reported.

“My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday,” Caruso told TMZ. “Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.”

Loughlin’s daughter has since returned to Los Angeles to face the allegations that could result in her getting expelled from USC.

USC’s Board of Trustees will not decide the status of Giannulli and the other students involved in the case, but rather, the university’s president will make the decisions, according to TMZ.

Business deals in jeopardy?

Giannulli is a YouTube beauty vlogger and social media star, but in the midst of her mother’s charges, she may lose the lucrative brand-sponsorship deals she has landed over the years, Variety reported.

HP, having cut ties with Giannulli, said in a statement, “HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP has removed the content from its properties.”

Giannulli also cut brand deals with partners including Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Sephora, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé, the report said.

Giannulli’s rep declined to comment, Variety reported. Estée Lauder Companies, which owns Smashbox and Too Faced, also declined to comment, while the other brands or companies the magazine reached out to did not immediately respond to their requests for comment.

$250M Lawsuit Against CNN Imminent; Covington High MAGA Student Suffered “Direct Attacks”

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

CNN is about to be sued for more than $250 million for spreading fake news about 16-year-old Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the MAGA-hat-wearing teenager appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum. Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong – after the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann’s reputation.

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

Speaking with Fox News host Mark Levin in an interview set to air Sunday, Sandmann’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, said “CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes. It’s broadcast into their homes.”

They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelites, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelites,” continued Wood. “Totally false. Saying things like that Nicholas was part of a group that was threatening the Black Hebrew Israelites, that they thought it was going to be a lynching.”

Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” Wood asked. “Maybe do that before you report the lies. They didn’t do it. They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week, and the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was [against] The Washington Post.”
