50 US Nukes now held hostage by Turkey.


Turkey ‘effectively holding 50 US nuclear bombs hostage’ at air base amid Syria invasion

White House officials scrambling to retrieve weapons of mass destruction, reports say


An estimated 50 US nuclear bombs are effectively being held hostage in Turkey as Washington attempts to find a diplomatic way of responding to the country’s invasion of Syria, officials are reported to have warned.

The withdrawal of American troops from northern Syria – creating a power vacuum that has allowed Turkey and Russia to move into the region and displace Washington’s Kurdish allies – has caused international outcry.

And as even his supporters accuse the White House of betraying its allies, Donald Trump has been forced to escalate his opposition to Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, threatening to “destroy” his counterpart's economy and contract America’s alliance with Ankara.

However, the rapid pace of withdrawal and the tumultuous decline of relations between the two countries has left administration officials scrambling to find a plan for the nuclear weapons stored under American control at the shared Incirlik Air Base in south east Turkey, reports said.

Officials from the State Department and Energy Department, which manages Washington's nuclear arsenal, met at the weekend to consider how they might retrieve an estimated fifty tactical nuclear weapons held at the site, according to The New York Times.

Anyone else notice?

Seems it would be one hellava "smoking gun."

House panel to take formal steps on impeachment probe next week

It may not be happening fast enough for some, but they're following the necessary procedures....


https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/06/politics/house-panel-impeachment-probe-steps/index.html


(CNN)The House Judiciary Committee is prepared to vote next week on a resolution laying out the procedures for its investigation now that it is actively considering moving to impeach President Donald Trump, a major step toward formalizing its sweeping probe, according to multiple sources familiar with the effort.

The vote, which is expected to occur on Wednesday, will lay out the ground rules for conducting hearings now that the committee has publicly announced it is considering recommending articles of impeachment against Trump. It is expected to follow the precedent set in 1974 over the committee's procedures during then-President Richard Nixon's impeachment proceedings.
Sources told CNN on Friday that the resolution is expected to spell out that Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, has the authority to call hearings at either the full committee or subcommittee level in connection with its impeachment deliberations.

Trump isn't crazy. He's signalling to The Epoch Times.

If anyone watched Rachel M. last night, they were informed that The Epoch Times is a group out of China who is now trying to become mainstream media in the US. They have bought the most online advertising in favor of Trump, next to the Trump re-election campaign itself. They are a spiritual organization that believes Trump was "sent" or "chosen" (sound familiar?) to destroy Communism via his trade war, which will thereby stop the persecution they are being subjected to by the Chinese government.

Dems 2020 need to run on healthcare and anti-corruption.

And they need to use the term, "anti-corruption," not some watered-down version like "cleaning up Washington" or "draining the swamp." Let's start pressing the issue HARD!
