How interesting it is that the establishment media has failed to take a breath in its efforts to dismantle and discredit anything Donald Trump since the moment he threw his hat into the ring. Yet, the very moment he chose to fall in line with the deep state agenda of War–that which was clearly the motivation for the onslaught of the negative press–he was quickly deemed “Mr. President” by the very same outlets who were only days prior championing calls of impeachment and arrest, hyperbolizing him as Hitler incarnate.
In every type of government, nothing unites people behind the leader more quickly, reflexively or reliably than war. Donald Trump now sees how true that is, as the same establishment leaders in U.S. politics and media who have spent months denouncing him as a mentally unstable and inept authoritarian and unprecedented threat to democracy are standing and applauding him as he launches bombs at Syrian government targets. – Glenn Greewald, The Intercept
Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate.

There are only a few logical ways to look at this abrupt and disjointed change in what is such a politically rooted stance. And not just a simple change of opinion either. This was a dramatic change, on a dime, from “worst man alive” to “the future of America.” So what happened to the over-the-top sexist and misogynistic comparisons, and the accusatory racist diatribes about how a man of his nature could never be a real president? Does an internationally illegal and unconstitutional airstrike suddenly wash a man clean of all his past indiscretions? Or is that the vast majority of the #NotMyPresident movement, and its laughably hypocritical riots for free speech and equal rights … apologies, “protests,” are orchestrated in order to create a perception of unrest and systemic corruption. And the moment Trump fell in line … well the media coverage speaks for itself.
And now that the Left has built themselves around being anti-Trump and anti-Russia, they simply have no choice but to cheer his warmongering actions, and, as has become the US norm since WWII, these are acts of war without congressional approval.
The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!

So what does that mean for the previous years of rhetoric? Where they wrong all along? Did they just up and decide that Trump is not that bad after all? Or did they just all of a sudden choose to start overlooking all that they so vehemently stated would, literally, bring down the country and end our “democracy?” Did they just come to the conclusion that as long as we are at war, all that other stuff doesn’t matter? If that is the case, their true motivations are laid bare. However, it all seems to point to the fact that this entire movement was a ginned up controversy designed to force the compliance of Donald Trump. And sadly, it appears as if they succeeded.
AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!

Regardless of the reasoning and seemingly logical explanation that will certainly be presented behind the next few militaristic steps to come(typically including some new threat or pressing need for heightened security at the expense of liberty), if the deep state maintains it driving control in US policy, it is just a matter of time until US troops are needed in Iran, Russia and China–only for an advisory role of course–and all stemming from a need to protect the Iranian, Russian and Chinese people from their tyrannical leaders.
