Morning Greatness: War-Enthusiast Freaks on Fire Over Syria

Good Tuesday morning.

There will be no Greatness tomorrow, I will be out for Yom Kippur.

Here is what’s on the president agenda today:

  • The president has lunch with the Vice President
  • President Trump receives his intelligence briefing
  • President Trump presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Edwin Meese

War-enthusiast freaks on fire over Syria withdrawal

The pro-war globalist coalition is literally on FIRE because President Trump announced the U.S. was pulling out of Syria, leaving it available for Turkey to move in and annex the northern part of the country. The unfortunate part of that move is that the U.S.’s Kurdish allies will be in danger. If Turkey plans to invade northern Syria, what can we do? Turkey is a member of garbage organization NATO and we are obligated to side with NATO members. The Kurds are not part of that treaty, it’s a bad situation all around.

So my question to all these blood thirsty war lovers who are melting down: how many Americans should die in a battle with Turkey? It’s not even clear the U.S. can fight against Turkey for the Kurds because of our NATO alliance. Will you sign up your children and family members to head on over to get blown to pieces or shot up? Of course not. The war coalition’s kids work for Google, Facebook or the N.B.A, they don’t go into the military. Now I am not a foreign policy expert but I can judge by the people opposing the president’s decision that he is probably right to GTFO of that hot mess.

Exhibit A:

Romney Says ‘America Is An Unreliable Ally’ After Trump Pulls Troops Out Of Syria
McConnell warns Trump against withdrawing troops from Syria
Susan Rice calls Trump decision to pull troops from Syria ‘batshit crazy’
Graham: ‘Irresponsible’ for Trump to Withdraw U.S. Troops From Syria
Congress pressures Trump to back down on Syria ‘betrayal’

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is having none of this

“It sounded like you listed the neocon war caucus of the Senate,” Paul said on Fox News, “They always want to stay at war.”

“And we need to not think that it’s always the U.S.’s responsibility to fight every war and find every peace we have to find peace for 18 years in Afghanistan,” Paul said. “So I certainly don’t think we’re going to find peace in Syria.”

South Park got memory-holed in China

Following on the footsteps of the N.B.A.’s gross apology to China, Comedy Central’s libertarian cartoon series South Park has been scrubbed from China for making fun of U.S. businesses eager to comply with China’s terms to enter their markets. Lots of cash money in China. The South Park episode that earned their erasure is titled “Band in China” and it is hilarious. Go watch it.

In case you didn’t know, China “helps” the entertainment industry edit their product so that it is fit for Chinese audiences. And Google is working with China to create a censored search engine, which probably isn’t much different than their regular search engine.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Now, those very same government censors, in the real world, have lashed back at South Park by deleting virtually every clip, episode and online discussion of the show from Chinese streaming services, social media and even fan pages.

A cursory perusal through China’s highly regulated internet landscape shows the show conspicuously absent everywhere it recently had a presence. A search of the Twitter-like social media service Weibo turns up not a single mention of South Park among the billions of past posts. On streaming service Youku, owned by internet giant Alibaba, all links to clips, episodes and even full seasons of the show are now dead.

And on Baidu’s Tieba, China’s largest online discussion platform, the threads and subthreads related to South Park are nonfunctional. If users manually type in the URL for what was formerly the South Park thread, a message appears saying that, “According to the relevant law and regulation, this section is temporarily not open.”

Halloween stunt? SCARY! 4-Hour mini-series based on James Comey’s book in the pipeline

Good grief, what a horrifying prospect. CBS is working on a 4-hour mini-series based on fired FBI head clown James Comey’s fable “A Higher Loyalty.” Is there actually a market demand for this? Of course not, but this is a great example of how the left invests in narrative creation, while the right keeps demanding the corporate media present the facts. How’s that workin’?

Jeff Daniels will play the sanctimonious giant.

“Captain Phillips” screenwriter Billy Ray has adapted the book and will be directing the as-yet-untitled series, which is executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Shane Salerno and Heather Kadin. The drama is slated to being production in November, 2019 with an airdate to be announced at a later date. CBS Studios has yet to determine whether the series will air on Showtime, CBS Access or both.

Might I suggest the Lifetime Movie channel?
