Dennis Kucinich: ‘Deep State’ Trying To ‘Destroy The Trump Presidency’
Fox News guy in full attack mode!
“Why are we helping ISIS?!!”
Kucinich: No evidence Assad was behind chemical attacks
WoW! Great interview. Also, really interesting point at minute-3.
Trump is getting jacked by the Deep State, as was a peace agreement in Syria.
Dennis has been a solid anti-war, which I greatly appreciate !!!

8 Reasons Why Congress Should Vote No on Training and Funding Syrian Rebels
Today Congress will vote on the McKeon Amendment, a piece of legislation most Americans haven’t heard of. But the consequences of the vote today are grave: funding Syrian “rebels” will precipitate a new and wider war in the Middle East. Here are eight reasons why Congress should vote NO on the McKeon Amendment:
1. It is a waste of money.
We’d be on the hook for a projected $21 billion price tag over three years. The Pentagon plans to train 5,000 rebels in the next year, which at $1 million for each soldier could cost up to $15 billion dollars over the three-year war. The nearly 2,000 U.S. troops in Iraq will cost $6 billion over three years.
The last Iraq War added at least $5 trillion to the long-term deficit.
2. There are no “moderates”
Historian Alastair Crooke, writing about the connection between Saudi Arabia and ISIS, recently described “moderate” insurgents in Syria as being “rarer than a mythical unicorn.” “Moderates” have a non-aggression pact with ISIS. […]
4. Those receiving U.S. money will turn on us.
Since the U.S. began its war on Iraq in March of 2003, over 1,000,000 innocent Iraqis (4 percent of the population) have perished and trillions of dollars in damage has occurred. Iraqis were stripped of their homes, their jobs, their social networks, humiliated beyond words, their country ruined. This is why America cannot expect to find any friends in Iraq. […]
8. Congress has it backwards.
Congress should not vote to fund a war it has not declared. The Congress must first vote for war before it votes to provide money for a war.

Kucinich: Striking Syria Will Make U.S. Military ‘Al-Qaeda’s Air Force’
Kucinich, who voted against the Iraq War and campaigned for the Democratic nomination for president in 2004 and 2008, lambasted the idea that Obama could act without congressional authorization, which he said would be a violation of the Constitution. He also warned that intervening in Syria would entangle the United States in another war in the Middle East and encourage Islamists who are fighting the forces of Syrian president Bashar Assad.
“So what, we’re about to become al-Qaeda’s air force now?” Kucinich sarcastically asked The Hill. …
“The verdict is in before the facts have been gathered,” Kucinich said. “What does that tell you?”
