The Death of Al Baghdadi

The photo above is one for the ages.

While we are all aware of the news by this point, we can use this thread to accumulate info for further use. Use this thread as our own historical record. Here, we can dump info details, maps, credit to various agencies, comments, etc.

We’ll start with the statement from the President, the ensuing presser, and work backwards…. and by the way, God Bless Our Military! Full transcript is located at the bottom of this post.

It started with a single Tweet from President Trump at 8:23pm on a Saturday night during the World Series.

If the WH stream fades away, here is another one. (Update, WH link is now posted on Youtube – link is below)

Here is the White House statement on Baghdadi:

Lindsey Graham was apparently in the WH Situation Room when it happened. He spoke from the WH podium. Where was Mitch McConnell???????? Video is not available as yet but we will post when it hits. Lindsey did post this at 10:08am. UPDATE: Video of Graham Presser available at 1:22pm

I’ll let you guys fill in all the extra details. It’s a good day for the world. God Bless our Military and the dog who was injured.

Americans never forget.

 Kayla Mueller, Steven Sotloff, James Foley and Abdul-Rahman (Peter) Kassig

Per Maria Bartiromo: “We called Debbie Dingell of Michigan to come on the show.” As of 11:47am, FOX News had “not heard from the leadership of the Dem Party on reaction to the incredible news” of the Death of the #1 Terrorist in the World…… silence.

Per Maria Bartiromo: As of 11:53, “We are just getting reaction from House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi….. someone must be watching”. Interesting. “While the death of this leader is significant it does not mean ISIS is dead”….. and she goes on to demand a briefing. Snippy response. No praise for our military, etc. (I was proven wrong 75 minutes later, Pelosi did praise military in beginning of her statement.)

Update, 1:15PM: Official Pelosi Statement:

Pelosi Statement on Al-Baghdadi Raid
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. military raid:

“Americans salute the heroism, dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals and acknowledge the work of our partners in the region. We are relieved that no U.S. personnel died in this daring raid.

“The death of al-Baghdadi is significant, but the death of this ISIS leader does not mean the death of ISIS. Scores of ISIS fighters remain under uncertain conditions in Syrian prisons, and countless others in the region and around the world remain intent on spreading their influence and committing acts of terror.

“This month, the House passed a joint resolution on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 354-60 basis which rejects President Trump’s green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS. The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region. Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington.”

Nancy Pelosi

Please continue to check Q Tree Daily Thread for minute-by-minute response from our members.

Per Dora and others, much has been made of the the connection between John McCain and Al Baghdadi.

In the immediate aftermath of the successful raid, the media has decided to make the raid political. The pundits are questioning why the Dem Leaders in Congress were not notified when Lindsey was at the White House and Chairman Burr of Senate Intel was notified (talk about a leaker, yikes!)

Anyway, Glen Greenwald has already located a 2015 NYTimes article about the 2012 Osama Bin Laden raid, which explained as follows. WH attorneys deemed justifiable delay t notification of Congress during the raid……. yet Leon Panetta, unable to contain himself, blabbed to Congress without permission.

Media Response: Unreal to watch the NYC/DC media twist themselves into a pretzel to defend terrorists…… cuz orange man is bad.

At 9:31am, Eastern Time on October 27, 2019, the Washington Post surprised the world with this headline: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48”

The reaction from the public was swift and #WashingtonPostDeathNotice trended for most of the day.

Later in the day, several times, WaPost attempted to correct the headline after blowback.

The reaction from Bloomberg tried to outdo the terrorist pandering of the WaPost. From Bloomberg: “… Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi transformed himself from a little-known teacher of Koranic recitation into the self-proclaimed ruler of an entity that covered swaths of Syria and Iraq”


Transcript from The President’s Announcement


Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead. He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization in the World. The United States has been searching for Baghdadi for many years. Capturing or killing Baghdadi has been the top national security priority of my Administration. U.S. Special Operations forces executed a dangerous and daring nighttime raid into Northwestern Syria to accomplish this mission.

No U.S. personnel were lost in the operation, while a large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed with him. He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming. The compound had been cleared by this time, with people either surrendering or being shot and killed. Eleven young children were moved out of the house un-injured. The only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel, who had dragged three children with him to certain death. He reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children. His body was mutilated by the blast, but test results gave certain and positive identification.

The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, panic and dread – terrified of the American Forces bearing down.We were in the compound for approximately 2 hours, and after the mission was accomplished we took highly sensitive material and information from the raid.Baghdadi’s demise demonstrates America’s relentless pursuit of terrorist leaders, and our commitment to the enduring and total defeat of ISIS!The reach of America is long. As you know, last month we announced that we recently killed Hamza Bin Laden, the very violent son of Osama Bin Laden, who was saying very bad things.

He was the heir apparent to Al Qaeda. Terrorists who oppress and murder innocent people should never sleep soundly, knowing that we will completely destroy them. These savage monsters will not escape their fate – and they will not escape the final judgement of God.

Baghdadi has been on the run for many years, long before I took office. At my direction, as Commander-in-Chief, the United States obliterated his ‘caliphate’ in March of this year. Today’s events are another reminder that we will continue to pursue the remaining ISIS terrorists to their brutal end.

Baghdadi and the losers who worked with him – in some cases people who had no idea what they were getting into and how dangerous and unglamorous it was – killed many people. Their murder of innocent Americans Jim Foley, Steven Sotloff, Peter Kassig, and Kayla Mueller were especially heinous. The shocking publicized murder of a Jordanian pilot who was burned alive in a cage for all to see, and the execution of Christians in Libya and Egypt, as well as the genocidal mass murder of Yazidis, rank ISIS among the most depraved organizations in history.

The forced religious conversions, the orange suits prior to many beheadings, all of which were openly displayed for the world – this was all Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s work. He was vicious and violent, and he died in a vicious and violent way, as a coward, running and crying. This raid was impeccable, and could only have taken place with the acknowledgement and help of certain other nations and people.

I want to thank the nations of Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, and I also want to thank the Syrian Kurds for certain support they were able to give us. Thank you as well to the great intelligence professionals who helped make this very successful journey possible.

I want to thank the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines involved in last night’s operation. You are the very best there is anywhere in the world. I want to thank General Mark Milley and our Joint Chiefs of Staff, and I also want to thank our professionals who work in other agencies of the United States government and were critical to the mission’s success.

Last night was a great night for the United States and for the World. A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, was violently eliminated – he will never again harm another innocent man, woman or child. He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place.

God bless the United States of America!

Comments from The President of The United States on the death of Al Baghdadi, October 27, 2019.


Question and Answer Session


Any questions?

Q When did you first hear that this was — operation was going to get started?

THE PRESIDENT: We’ve had him under surveillance for a couple of weeks. We knew a little bit about where he was going, where he was heading. We had very good information that he was going to another location. He didn’t go. Two or three efforts were cancelled because he decided to change his mind — constantly changing his mind. And, finally, we saw that he was here, held up here. We knew something about the compound. We knew it had tunnels. The tunnels were a dead-end, for the most part. There was one, we think, that wasn’t. But we had that covered too, just in case.

The level of intelligence, the level of work, was pretty amazing. When we landed with eight helicopters, a large crew of brilliant fighters ran out of those helicopters and blew holes into the side of the building, not wanting to go through the main door because that was booby-trapped. And there was something — it was something really amazing to see. I got to watch it, along with General Milley, Vice President Pence, others, in the Situation Room. And we watched it so clearly.

Q They had body cameras? Or how did you watch the —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I don’t want to say how, but we had absolutely perfect — as though you were watching a movie. It was — that — the technology there alone is really great.

A big part of the trip that was of great danger was the — it was approximately an hour and 10-minute flight, and we were flying over very, very dangerous territory. In fact, some of our leaders said that that could be the most dangerous — flying in and flying out. And that’s why, last night, we were so quiet about it. We didn’t say anything, and I didn’t make my remark until after they had landed safely in a certain area.

But the flight in, the flight out, was a very, very dangerous part. There was a chance that we would have met unbelievable fire. Russia treated us great. They opened up. We had to fly over certain Russia areas, Russia-held areas. Russia was great. Iraq was excellent. We really had great cooperation.

And you have to understand: They didn’t know what we were doing and where we were going, exactly. But the ISIS fighters are hated as much by Russia and some of these other countries as they are by us. And that’s why I say they should start doing a lot of the fighting now, and they’ll be able to. I really believe they’ll be able to.

Yes, Jennifer?

Q Sir, can you say what role the Kurds played in this, just generally?

THE PRESIDENT: They gave us not a military role at all, but they gave us some information that turned out to be helpful, the Kurds.

Q And can you tell us what the role of Turkey might have been, and Iraq?


Q What was the role of Turkey? How did they help?

THE PRESIDENT: Turkey — we dealt with them. They know we were going in. We flew over some territory. They were terrific. No problem. They were not problem. You know, they could start shooting, and then we will take them out. But a lot of bad things can happen. Plus, it was a very secret mission. We flew very, very low and very, very fast. But it was a big — it was a very dangerous part of the mission. Getting in and getting out too, equal. We went in identical — we took an identical route. We met with gunfire coming in, but it was local gunfire. That gunfire was immediately terminated. These people are amazing. They had the gunfire terminated immediately, meaning they were shot from the airships.

Q I’m trying to understand the timing. You talked earlier — you know, several weeks — about pulling troops out, you know, and then troops were put back in. And then, you know — I’m trying to understand the timing of when this operation — how it fits —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’ll tell you, from the first day I came to office — and now we’re getting close to three years — I would say, “Where’s al-Baghdadi? I want al-Baghdadi.” And we would kill terrorist leaders, but they were names I never heard of. They were names that weren’t recognizable and they weren’t the big names. Some good ones, some important ones, but they weren’t the big names. I kept saying, “Where’s al-Baghdadi?” And a couple of weeks ago, they were able to scope him out.

You know, these people are very smart. They’re not into the use of cellphones anymore. They’re not — they’re very technically brilliant. You know, they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world, perhaps other than Donald Trump. But they use the Internet incredibly well.

And what they’ve done with the Internet, through recruiting and everything — and that’s why he died like a dog, he died like a coward. He was whimpering, screaming, and crying. And, frankly, I think it’s something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids that want to leave various countries, including the United States, they should see how he died. He didn’t die a hero. He died a coward — crying, whimpering, screaming, and bringing three kids with him to die a certain death. And he knew the tunnel had no end. I mean, it was a — it was a closed-end — they call it a closed-end tunnel. Not a good place to be.

Q So this was going on before you made the announcement that you’re pulling them out?

THE PRESIDENT: I’ve been looking for him for three years. I’ve been looking for him. I started getting some very positive feedback about a month ago, and we had some incredible intelligence officials that did a great job. That’s what they should be focused on.

Q And about what time did this operation start yesterday, sir? And have you notified the leaders on —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, this operation started two weeks ago, in terms of the real operation, because we had him scoped. We thought he’d be in a certain location. He was. Things started checking out very well. We were involved, on our own team, with some brilliant people who I’ve gotten to know. Brilliant people that love our country. Highly intelligent people. And we — we’ve had it pretty well scoped out for a couple of weeks.

But he tends to change immediately. He had a lot of cash. He tends to change, like, on a dime, where he’ll be going to a certain location. All of a sudden, he’ll go someplace else and you’ll have to cancel.

But this was one where we knew he was there. And you can never be 100 percent sure because you’re basing it on technology, more than anything else. But we thought he was there, and then we got a confirmation. And when we went in, they were greeted with a lot of firepower. A lot of firepower.

I’ll tell you, these guys, they do a job. They are so brave and so good. And, so importantly, many of his people were killed. And we’ll announce the exact number over the next 24 hours. But many were killed. We lost nobody. Think of that. It’s incredible.

Q And when you told the Russians, you requested permission —

THE PRESIDENT: Our dog was hurt. Actually, the K-9 was hurt, went into the tunnel. But we lost nobody.

Q And so you requested to the Russians to fly over this area they controlled. What did you tell them —

THE PRESIDENT: We spoke to the Russians.

Q What did you tell them you were going to do?

THE PRESIDENT: We told them we’re coming in.

Q Okay.

THE PRESIDENT: And they said, “Thank you for telling us.” They were very good.

Q But did you tell them why? No? You just —

THE PRESIDENT: No. They did not know why.

Q Was any other country given —

THE PRESIDENT: We did tell them, “We think you’re going to be very happy.” Because, you know, again, they hate ISIS as much as we do. You know what ISIS has done to Russia. So, no, we did not tell — they did not know the mission, but they knew we were going over an area that they had — they had a lot of firepower.

Q And have you notified the congressional leaders about this? Pelosi? Mitch McConnell?

THE PRESIDENT: We’ve notified some. Others are being notified now, as I speak. We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before. There’s nothing — there’s no country in the world that leaks like we do. And Washington is a leaking machine. And I told my people we will not notify them until the — our great people are out. Not just in, but out. I don’t want to have them greeted with firepower like you wouldn’t believe.

So we were able to get in. It was top secret. It was kept. There were no leaks, no nothing. The only people that knew were the few people that I dealt with. And again, Mark Milley and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were incredible. We had some tremendous backup. Robert O’Brien, Secretary Esper, Secretary Pompeo. Pence, I told you, he was great. There’s a very small group of people that knew about this. We had very, very few people. A leak — a leak could have cost the death of all of them.

Now, they’re so good that I think nothing was going to stop them anyway, if you want to know the truth. That’s how good they were. We had them also surrounded by massive airpower. Up in the air, yesterday, surrounded at very high levels. We were very low. We had tremendous airpower.

Q And you watched all this from the Sit Room? Who were you with in the Sit Room when you watched this?

THE PRESIDENT: Secretary Esper, a few of the Joint Chiefs, Mark Milley, some generals. We had some very great military people in that room. And we had some great intelligence people — Robert O’ Brien. It was really great.


Q Was the pullout of the U.S. troops in Syria last month strategically tied in with this raid? Was it —

THE PRESIDENT: No, no, the pullout —

Q Is this a red herring?

THE PRESIDENT: Right. Sure. It’s a great question. And you’re doing a great job, by the way. Your network is fantastic. They’re really doing a great job. Please let them know.

Q Yes, sir. Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: No, the pullout had nothing to do with this. In fact, we found this out at a similar time. It’s a very good question — because we found this out at a similar time.

No, we’re after these leaders. And we have others in sight, very bad ones. But this was the big one. This is the biggest one, perhaps, that we’ve ever captured, because this is the one that built ISIS, and beyond, and was looking to rebuild it again. Very, very strongly looking to build it again. That’s why he went to this province; this is why he went to this area.

You know, a lot of people — I was watching, this morning, and hearing, and they said, “Why was he there?” People were so surprised. Well, that’s where he was trying to rebuild from because that was the place that made most sense, if you’re looking to rebuild.


Q You sent out your tweet last night. At what moment did you decide to send that?

THE PRESIDENT: So, I sent that right after I knew they had landed safely.

Q When they had returned?

THE PRESIDENT: Right. And that was to notify you guys that you have something big this morning, so you wouldn’t be out playing golf or tennis, or otherwise being indisposed.

Q Where did they land? Where were they safe? Where had they landed?

THE PRESIDENT: I’d rather not say. But we landed in a very friendly port in a friendly country.

Q Does this give you any pause by your decision to withdraw the troops?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I think it’s great. Look, we don’t want to keep soldiers between Syria and Turkey for the next 200 years. They’ve been fighting for hundreds of years. We’re out. But we are leaving soldiers to secure the oil. And we may have to fight for the oil. It’s okay. Maybe somebody else wants the oil, in which case they have a hell of a fight. But there’s massive amounts of oil.

And we’re securing it for a couple of reasons. Number one, it stops ISIS, because ISIS got tremendous wealth from that oil. We have taken it. It’s secured.

Number two — and again, somebody else may claim it, but either we’ll negotiate a deal with whoever is claiming it, if we think it’s fair, or we will militarily stop them very quickly. We have tremendous power in that part of the world. We have — you know, the airport is right nearby. A very big, very monstrous, very powerful airport, and very expensive airport that was built years ago. We were in there — we’re in that Middle East now for $8 trillion.

So we don’t want to be keeping Syria and Turkey. They’re going to have to make their own decision. The Kurds have worked along incredibly with us, but in all fairness, it was much easier dealing with the Kurds after they went through three days of fighting, because that was a brutal three days. And if I — we would have said to the Kurds, “Hey, do you mind moving over seven miles?” Because, you know, they were in the middle, mostly. So you have seven or eight miles. “Could you mind moving over?”

Because, I have to say, Turkey has taken tremendous deaths from that part of the world. You know, we call it a safe zone. But it was anything but a safe zone. Turkey has lost thousands and thousands people from that safe zone. So they’ve always wanted that safe zone, for many years. I’m glad I was able to help them get it. But we don’t want to be there; we want to be home. I want our soldiers home or fighting something that’s meaningful.

I’ll tell you who loves us being there: Russia and China. Because while they build their military, we’re depleting our military there. So, Russia loves us being there. Now, Russia likes us being there for two reasons: because we kill ISIS, we kill terrorists, and they’re very close to Russia. We’re 8,000 miles away. Now, maybe they can get here, but we’ve done very well with Homeland Security and the ban, which, by the way, is approved by the United States Supreme Court, as you know. You know, there was a reporter that said we lost the case. And he was right, in the early court. He refu- — he didn’t want to say; just refused to say that we won the case in the Supreme Court. So, you know.

But we have a very effective ban, and it’s very hard for people to come to our country. But it’s many thousands of miles away, whereas Russia is right there, Turkey is right there. Syria is there. They’re all right there. Excuse me, Iran is right there. Iraq is right there. They all hate ISIS. So, we don’t — you know, in theory, they should do something.

And I’ll give you something else: The European nations have been a tremendous disappointment because I personally called, but my people called a lot. “Take your ISIS fighters.” And they didn’t want them. They said, “We don’t want them.” They came from France, they came from Germany, they came from the UK. They came from a lot of countries. And I actually said to them, “If you don’t take them, I’m going to drop them right on your border. And you can have fun capturing them again.”

But the United States taxpayer is not going to pay for the next 50 years. You see what Guantanamo costs. We’re not going to pay tens of billions of dollars because we were good enough to capture people that want to go back to Germany, France, UK, and other parts of Europe. And they can walk back. They can’t walk to our country. We have lots of water in between our country and them.

So, yeah. Go.

Q You mentioned that you met some — gotten to know some brilliant people along this process who really helped provide information and advice along the way. Is there anyone in particular, or would you like to give anyone credit for getting to this point today?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I would, but if I mentioned one, I have to mention so many. I spoke to Senator Richard Burr this morning. And, as you know, he’s very involved with intelligence and the committee. And he’s a great gentleman.

I spoke with Lindsey Graham just a little while ago. In fact, Lindsey Graham is right over here. And he’s been very much involved in this subject. And he’s — he’s a very strong hawk. But I think Lindsey agrees with what we’re doing now.

And, again, there are plenty of other countries that can help them patrol. I don’t want to leave 1,000 or 2,000 or 3,000 soldiers on the border.

But where Lindsey and I totally agree is the oil. The oil is, you know, so valuable for many reasons. It fueled ISIS, number one. Number two, it helps the Kurds, because it’s basically been taken away from the Kurds. They were able to live with that oil. And number three, it can help us because we should be able to take some also. And what I intend to do, perhaps, is make a deal with an Exxon Mobil or one of our great companies to go in there and do it properly. Right now, it’s not big. It’s big oil underground, but it’s not big oil up top, and much of the machinery has been shot and dead. It’s been through wars. But — and — and spread out the wealth.

But, no, we’re protecting the oil. We’re securing the oil. Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t make a deal at some point. But I don’t want to be — they’re fighting for 1,000 years, they’re fighting for centuries. I want to bring our soldiers back home. But I do want to secure the oil.

If you read about the history of Donald Trump — I was a civilian. I had absolutely nothing to do with going into Iraq, and I was totally against it. But I always used to say, “If they’re going to go in…” — nobody cared that much, but it got written about. “If they’re going to go in…” — I’m sure you’ve heard the statement, because I made it more than any human being alive. “If they’re going into Iraq, keep the oil.” They never did. They never did.

I know Lindsey Graham had a bill where basically we would have been paid back for all of the billions of dollars that we’ve spent — many, many billions of dollars. I mean, I hate to say it, it’s actually trillions of dollars, but many, many billions of dollars. And, by one vote, they were unable to get that approved in the Senate. They had some pretty big opposition from people that shouldn’t have opposed, like a president. And they weren’t able. If you did that, Iraq would be a much different story today because they would be owing us a lot of money. They would be treating us much differently.

But I will say, Iraq was very good with respect to the raid last night.

Q Sir, just to pin down the timing a little bit better here: You got back to the White House around 4:30 yesterday afternoon. Did you immediately go to the Situation Room?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I knew all about this for three days.

Q Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. We thought, for three days, this is what was going to happen. It was actually — look, nobody was even hurt. Our K-9, as they call — I call it a dog, a beautiful dog, a talented dog — was injured and brought back. But we had no soldier injured. And they did a lot of shooting, and they did a lot of blasting, even not going through the front door. You know, you would think you go through the door. If you’re a normal person, you say, “Knock, knock. May I come in?” The fact is that they blasted their way into the house and a very heavy wall, and it took them literally seconds. By the time those things went off, they had a beautiful, big hole, and they ran in and they got everybody by surprise.

Unbelievably brilliant, as fighters. I don’t — I can’t imagine there could be anybody better. And these, as you know, are our top operations people.

Q And Baghdadi apparently had been in bad health for some time. Was there any indication of that? Or —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we don’t know that. But he was the last one out, and his people had either been killed, which there were many, or gave up and came out. Because with the 11 children that came out, we were able to do that. We don’t know if they were his children. They might have been. But as I said, three died in the tunnel. And the tunnel collapsed with the explosion. But you had other fighters coming out also. And they’re being brought back. They’re being — they’re — right now, we have them imprisoned.

Q I was going to ask whose children they were, but do you remember what time you went into the Situation Room?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I started at five o’clock. We were pretty much gathered at five o’clock yesterday. We were in contact all day long through, hopefully, secure phones. I’ll let you know tomorrow. But nothing seemed to leak, so I guess they were secure, for a change.

But we gathered more or less at five. The attack started moments after that. The — the liftoff started moments after that. Again, the element of attack that they were most afraid of was getting from our base into that compound. Because there’s tremendous firepower that we were, you know, flying over.

And I won’t go into it, but you had a very big Russian presence in one area, you had a Turkish presence, you had a Syrian presence. And you’re flying low. It’s very dangerous. And there were shots made, but we think these were people that were shooting that were indiscriminately shooting. The helicopters took some shots, but we think that these were people that were just random people that don’t like to see helicopters, I guess.

Q Sir, was there any kind of DNA test done? Or where is the body? You know —

THE PRESIDENT: So, that’s another part of the genius of these people. They brought his — they have his DNA. More of it than they want, even. And they brought it with them with lab technicians who were with them. And they assumed that this was Baghdadi. They thought, visually, it was him. But they assumed it was him, and they did a site — an onsite test. They got samples.

And to get to his body, they had to remove a lot of debris because the tunnel had collapsed. But these people are very good at that. And — and they, as I said, they brought body parts back with them, et cetera, et cetera. There wasn’t much left. The — the vest blew up, but there are still substantial pieces that they brought back. So they did an onsite test because we had to know this. And it was a very quick call that took place about 15 minutes after he was killed, and it was positive. It was — it’s, “This is a confirmation, sir.”

Q There was also a report that his wife had detonated — or one of his wives had detonated a vest. Is that —

THE PRESIDENT: So, there were two women. There were two women. Both wives, both wearing vests. They had not detonated. But the fact that they were dead and they had vests on made it very difficult for our men, because they had vests on. And it made it very difficult for our men. Because you never know what’s going to happen. They’re lying, they’re dead. They never detonated. But they were dead.

Q And if (inaudible) on the successor — the possible successors, have you been briefed on who would possibly fill in the seats?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. We know the successors. And we’ve already got them in our sights. And we’ll tell you that right now, but we know the successors. Hamza bin Laden was a big thing, but this is the biggest there is. This is the worst ever.

Osama bin Laden was very big, but Osama bin Laden became big with the World Trade Center. This is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, “a country,” a caliphate, and was trying to do it again.

And I had not heard too much about his health. I’ve heard stories about he may not have been in good health. But he died a — he died in a ruthless, vicious manner. That, I can tell you.

Q Were any prisoners taken, sir? Were any adults taken for intel purposes?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, we have people that were taken. We have — many of the people died on the site. But we have people that were taken, yes. And — and the children, we are — we left them under care of somebody, that we understand.

Q Can you say how many? Or do you believe that these were —

THE PRESIDENT: Eleven children.

Q Eleven children. How many adults?

THE PRESIDENT: I’d rather not say. I’d leave that to the generals. But —

Q These were —

THE PRESIDENT: — a small group. More dead than alive.

Q Which operations teams were involved? Which Special Operations teams were involved?

THE PRESIDENT: Many of them, and at the top level. And people that were truly incredible at their craft. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Q And were there — as far as partnerships goes, were there any other forces involved? Or was this only American troops in this raid?

THE PRESIDENT: No, only American forces.

Q And did the U.S. —

THE PRESIDENT: Only American forces. But we were given great cooperation.

Q Did the U.S. rely on —

THE PRESIDENT: We told the Russians we’re coming in, because we had to go over them. And they were curious, but — but we said, “We’re coming.” How we said — one way or the other, “Hey, look, we’re coming.” But they were very cooperative. They really were good. And we did say it would be a mission that they’d like, too. Because, you know, again, they hate ISIS as much as we do.

Q Sir, I meant for intel purposes, was there any foreign intel that proved useful along the way in this operation?

THE PRESIDENT: So, we had our own intel. We got very little help. We didn’t need very much help. We have some incredible people. When we use our intelligence correctly, what we can do is incredible. When we waste our time with intelligence, that hurts our country, because we had poor leadership at the top. That’s not good.

But I’ve gotten to know many of the intel people, and I will say that they are spectacular. Now, they’re not going to want to talk about it. They want to keep it quiet. The last thing they want, because these are — these are great patriots. But the people that I’ve been dealing with are incredible people. And it’s really a deserving name: “intelligence.” I’ve dealt with some people that aren’t very intelligent, having to do with intel, but this is the top people and it was incredible. It was flawless. And it was very complicated.

But — so, I do appreciate Russia, Turkey, Iraq, and Syria, to an extent, because, you know, we’re flying into Syria, and a lot of Syrian people with lots of guns.

So we had good cover for probably the most dangerous part. It would not sound to — you know, when you fly in, it doesn’t sound like that would be the most dangerous when you’re going into shooting nests and all of the things that happened once they broke into that pretty powerful compound. That was a very strong compound and, as I said, had tunnels.

But the most dangerous part, we had great cooperation with.

Yes, ma’am.

Q Did you inform Speaker Pelosi ahead of time?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I didn’t. I didn’t do — I didn’t do that. I wanted to make sure this kept secret. I don’t want to have men lost — and women. I don’t want to have people lost.

Q Do you anticipate inviting the Special Forces teams to the White House after this?

THE PRESIDENT: Oh, yeah. They’ll be invited. I don’t know if they’ll want to have their faces shown, to be honest with you. You know, they want to — they’re incredible for the country. They’re not looking for public relations.

But they love doing what they’re doing. I’ve seen it. The First Lady was out there, recently, looking at what they do. She came back, she said, “Wow, I’ve never seen anything like that.” The training — you know, all of the training — and the power of the people. The men and women, the strength, the physical strength, the mental strength. These are incredible people. These are very unique individuals.

Q You mentioned whimpering. Could you hear that on your video hookup?

THE PRESIDENT: Mentioned what?

Q The whimpering of Baghdadi. Did you hear it?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t want to talk about it, but —

Q Okay.

THE PRESIDENT: — he was screaming, crying, and whimpering. And he was scared out of his mind.

And think of James Foley. Think of Kayla. Think of the things he did to Kayla; what he did to Foley and so many others. And for those people that say, “Oh, isn’t this a little violent? Think of how many times have you seen men — I think, in all cases, men, for the most part — but in terms of this, where you see the orange suits, and you see the ocean and they’re beheaded. Or how many of you got to see — because it was out there — the Jordanian pilot whose plane went down, they captured him, they put him in a cage, and they set him on fire.

And the King of Jordan actually attacked, very powerfully, when that happened. They’ve never seen anything like that. But he set him on fire. This was al-Baghdadi. And you should never, ever hopefully see a thing like that again.

Now, there’ll be new people emerged, but this was the worst of this particular world. This was the worst. Probably, in certain ways, the smartest. He was also a coward. And he didn’t want to die. But think of it: Everybody was out, and we were able to search him down and find him in the tunnel. We knew the tunnel existed. And that’s where he was.

Q And you’ve taken a lot of heat for the Syria pullout. Do you think this will change the standing — your standing —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I don’t have a Syria pullout. I just don’t want to guard Turkey and Syria for the rest of our lives. I mean, I don’t want to do it. It’s very expensive. It’s very dangerous. They’ve been fighting for centuries. I don’t want to have my people — 2,000 men and women, or 1,000, or 28. We had 28 guards. And I said, “I don’t want them there anyway. I don’t want them.”

Now, I will secure the oil that happens to be in a certain part. But that’s tremendous money involved. I would love to — you know, the oil in — I mean, I’ll tell you a story. In Iraq — so they spent — President Bush went in. I strongly disagreed with it, even though it wasn’t my expertise at the time, but I had a — I have a very good instinct about things. They went in and I said, “That’s a tremendous mistake.” And there were no weapons of mass destruction. It turned out I was right. I was right for other reasons, but it turned out, on top of everything else, they had no weapons of mass destruction, because that would be a reason to go in. But they had none.

But I heard recently that Iraq, over the last number of years, actually discriminates against America in oil leases. In other words, some oil companies from other countries, after all we’ve done, have an advantage Iraq for the oil. I said, “Keep the oil. Give them what they need. Keep the oil.” Why should we — we go in, we lose thousands of lives, spend trillions of dollars, and our companies don’t even have an advantage in getting the oil leases. So I just tell you that story. That’s what I heard.

Q Did Gina Haspel play a role in this? Can you talk a little bit about that? And I saw your NSC counter-terrorism director out in the hallway. Was there a role with NSC counter-terrorism?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Everybody. Gina was great. Everybody played a role. Joe was great. Gina was great. They were all great.

Q Just to follow up, did your Syria pullout, did that generate the intelligence that led to this operation?

THE PRESIDENT: No. We were looking at this — look, as I said, Steve, I’ve been looking at this — I’m here almost three years. I’ve been looking at this for three years. They’d come in, “Sir, we have somebody under…” — I said, “I don’t want somebody. I want al-Baghdadi. That’s the one I want.” They’d said, “Well, we have somebody else.” I said, “That’s great. Fine. Take them out. But I want al-Baghdadi. That’s who I want. I don’t want other people.”

And then I also wanted Hamza bin Laden because he’s a young man, around 30, looks just like his father. Tall, very handsome. And he was talking bad things, just like his father.

You know, if you read my book — there was a book just before the World Trade Center came down. And I don’t get any credit for this, but that’s okay. I never do. But here we are. I wrote a book — a, really, very successful book. And in that book, about a year before the World Trade Center was blown up, I said, “There is somebody named Osama bin Laden. You better kill him or take him out.” Something to that effect. “He’s big trouble.”

Now, I wasn’t in government. I was building buildings and doing what I did. But I always found it fascinating. But I saw this man — tall, handsome, very charismatic — making horrible statements about wanting to destroy our country. And I’m writing a book. I think I wrote 12 books. All did very well. And I’m writing a book. The World Trade Center had not come down. I think it was about — if you check, it was about a year before the World Trade Center came down. And I’m saying to people, “Take out Osama bin Laden,” that nobody ever heard of. Nobody ever heard of. I mean, al-Baghdadi everybody hears because he’s built this monster for a long time. But nobody ever heard of Osama bin Laden until, really, the World Trade Center.

But about a year — you’ll have to check — a year, year and a half before the World Trade Center came down, the book came out. I was talking about Osama bin Laden. I said, “You have to kill him. You have to take him out.” Nobody listened to me.

And to this day, I get people coming up to me, and they said, “You know what one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen about you? Is that you predicted that Osama bin Laden had to be killed before he knocked down the World Trade Center.” It’s true. Now, most of the press doesn’t want to write that, but you know — but it is true. If you go back, look at my book. I think it was “The America We Deserve.” I made a prediction, and I — let’s put it this way: If they would have listened to me, a lot of things would have been different.

Q Sir, can you talk about some of the difficult decisions you had along the way here in this operation? Anything that weighed on you or that you had to —

THE PRESIDENT: Well, just death. I mean, you know, I’m sending a large number of brilliant fighters. These are the greatest fighters in the world.

Q How many?

THE PRESIDENT: I’d rather let the generals tell you, but a large number. We had eight helicopters and we had many other ships and planes.

It was a large group. And again, this is a large group heading over very, very strong firepower areas where — that was decision one: Will they make it? And they made it, but they took fire, but they made it. They didn’t take — we don’t believe, again, it was nation fire; we believe it was individual group fire or gang fire, as they call it. So, they made it, so that was a big relief.

Then they went in, they blasted their way in — you’ve heard. They blasted their way in so quickly. It was incredible. Because this building was quite powerful, strong. They blasted their way in, and then all hell broke loose. It’s incredible that nobody was killed — or hurt. We had nobody even hurt. And that’s why the dog was so great. We actually had a robot to go in the tunnel, but we didn’t get it because we were tracking him very closely. But we had a robot, just in case. Because we were afraid he had a suicide vest on, and if you get close to him and he blows it up, you’re going to die. You’re going to die. He had a very powerful suicide vest.

Q Did you have to make any decisions in the moment, while troops were on the ground?

THE PRESIDENT: No, they had it just incredible. We were getting full reports on literally a minute-by-minute basis. “Sir, we just broke in.” “Sir, the wall is down.” “Sir,” you know, “we’ve captured.” “Sir, two people are coming out right now. Hands up.” Fighters. Then, the 11 children out. Numerous people were dead within the building that they killed.

Then, it turned out, they gave us a report: “Sir, there’s only one person in the building. We are sure he’s in the tunnel trying to escape.” But it’s a dead-end tunnel. And it was brutal. But it was over. And as I said, when he blew himself up, the tunnel collapsed on top of him, on top of everything — and his children. I mean, so he led his three children to death. So, you know —

Q And in the tunnel, that’s when the robot followed him in? That’s why no troops died?

THE PRESIDENT: The robot was set to, but we didn’t hook it up because we were too — they were moving too fast. We were moving fast. We weren’t 100 percent sure about the tunnel being dead-ended. It’s possible that there could have been an escape hatch somewhere along that we didn’t know about.

So we moved very, very quickly. I mean —

Q Was he being chased then?

THE PRESIDENT: — these people, they were moving — they were chasing, yeah. They were chasing. But again, because the suicide vest, you can’t get too close.

Again, one of the reasons with the wives is if they have a suicide vest, you know, you have to be very, very careful. These vests are brutal. Brutal. And they go for a long distance.

Yes, please.

Q Have you spoken or will you speak to the families, like the Foley family?

THE PRESIDENT: I’m calling the families now. It will be a pleasure to do that. The Foley family, who I know. We’ll be calling Kayla’s family. What — what he did to her was incredible. It’s a well-known story, and I’m not going to say it, but you know that. He kept her in captivity for a long period of time. He kept her in his captivity, his personal captivity. She was a beautiful woman, beautiful young woman. Helped people. She was there to help people. And he saw her and he thought she was beautiful, and he brought her into captivity for a long period of time and then he killed her. He was an animal, and he was a gutless animal.

Thank you all very much. I appreciate it. It’s a very great day for our country.

Thanks for the report. This is exciting news!! It is nice to have it all in one place.


One Evildoer down – may the rest soon follow.
Domestic terrorists, such as Antifa, as well.
And I include leftist ideologues and traitors among the domestic terrorists.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Maybe even Pelosi herself. Her response makes me think that she is AWARE of Turkish intrigues, and was helping them in their ANTIAMERICAN PRO-ISIS BS.


Note her “complaint” is that she wasn’t notified in advance…
“The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region.” – Pelosi
No one should be wondering why.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

House of Commies. Notifying them would be TREASON.


No Leaks.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I loved how they called him “serial leaker Adam Schiff”. That guy needs to be OFF the intel committee.


I don’t believe any Democrat in Congress should be notified of anything regarding National Security. They have essentially proved themselves as being enemies of the country. It’s more than just “leaking” classified information… it’s aiding and abetting America’s enemies.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Look how much DAMAGE Democrats are doing with JUST THE HOUSE.


Brian Cates tread answering the WaPo’s fawning sympathetic obituary of Al Baghdadi:

Yeah. Say it like you mean it

The deep state are being exposed more and more… time to expose THEM to Gitmo, or that new virtual reality (electrically enhanced reality) “gamer chair” Sparky…


In other news, Jeff Bezos announces that the Washington Post is merging with its parent paper, Pravda.


Thanks for putting this up, Daughn.
It is interesting and revealing to me if Lindsey Graham was in the Sit Room when this was happening. So many people don’t trust Graham, but he appears to have a good working relationship with Trump. He is ex-military and very active and supportive of our armed services, but not currently on a committee related to that. Also interesting because of his connection to the snake McShame, and his connections to the ME. All I know is, I trust Trump to know who to trust.
I love that the head of the Intelligence Committee, ole Shifty-Schiff, was excluded. It is ridiculous to me that anyone would even consider that telling Nancy Pelosi would be a thing.
God Bless our great troops (canines included), and God Bless President Trump!




Telling Pelosi would be equal to telling Auntie Maxine .


Equal to telling al Baghdadi


He’s being used as the lead hound. He’s taking the press off thecliff. Maybe Judas goat would be more appropriate. And he’s enjoying every minute

A Fortiori

It is the judgment of the President that the Speaker of the House, third in line to be the President, probably would sacrifice US military personnel rather than allow something to happen that might make the President look good. And we are not shocked at this judgment. Rather, we applaud the President for his decision.
That this had to be done, to me, is chilling.


Dear Representative Schiff,
Please consider this notice of the upcoming raid on you and your affiliates cash cow.
Feel free to leak this information to them in advance.
Thank you,
P.S. Psyche. I already made the raid.

Deplorable Patriot

Why should POTUS tell the traitors anything?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The reflexively anti-American party should not be informed about the fate of their accidental allies.

A Fortiori

And about the fate of the allies they created too.


Chad needs to get it right they are not Democratic they are Democrats. I wish people think a little and it irks me every time I read or hear about Democrats being Democratic.


Pelosi has a nerve. Under democrat leadership President ISIS thrived and became a gruesome killing machine to muslims and Christians alike. The poor people children women men alike just butchered.
Nancie needs to shut up and thank her lucky stars that President Trump is comander and chief and not Hillary.

And just like that, we realized that Spygate was only a pimple on the huge stinking pig.


Yep, Creation of ISIS, Benghazi, emails, spygate, Russia, Ukraine….decades of corruption.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy


Heck, if they’re REALLY that upset, why don’t they file articles of impeachment against Trump?


They should. It should Be a front page article about US taking out top terrorist. An Obituary?!?, to mourn his death is totally disgusting. Was it penned and submitted by Hussein?? the squad???


Its pretty sick. Would they have done this for pol pot, hitler, et al? The scum was truly violent just for shoots and giggles. No one should read or credit this rag. Hope it drops some red pills today.



OMG! Click on the hashtag, Folks are having a good time mocking!! 😂😂

Cuppa Covfefe

I think that mocking them is great.
It’s time we start calling out and mocking the fake news anywhere and everywhere we see it.
I’d love to see a ton more sites like the Babylon Bee out there to fight against the demonic drivel that the left pushes continuously.
It’s unbelieveable the crud that’s on the news over here…. then again, Göbbels is somehow still here…
And, the AfD (our Deplorables) have done really well in today’s elections in the state of Thuringen, even topping the CDU (unfortunately, Die Linke still got more). BUt of course the swampians are saying that we proles are not getting THEIR message (reminds me of Steve Ballmer saying to a reporter: “you must have misunderstood your question”…).
NO, DERP STATE: YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND OUR MESSAGE!!!!!! Time to send Satan Soros and all his Demonic minions packing… off to Hell, where they came from…..


IMO, Jeff Bezos and his financial backers are to be considered enemies of the United States. Any information conduits to them should be shut down.
I bet we’re going to see more moves by POTUS that block out the Dems – they’re a National Security risk.

Cuppa Covfefe

I’d like to see VSGPDJT and we Deplorables BLOT OUT the dems.. soak them up and send them off, maybe with Musk… not Mars, but a ways away, say Proxima Centauri… or, Europe, where they can whine about Gore-Bull warming while shivering watching the (methane) ice volcanos… and then trying to figure out, if methane is a greenhouse gas, why isn’t Europe warming…
They are SOOOO clueless… they probably thing Avogadro’s number is how many you put in Guacaomole…


They have now CHANGED the headline online!
They think we are stupid. People take screenshots, you morons.


Twice now


Wow! They just can’t get it right. Morons.


Since all directives come from Bezos (9 am orders)…it has to be him making the decision. Needs to be called out loud and often.


What I want is an update on the condition of the poor brave military dog.
And I resent the statement that Al Baghdadi died like a dog . That military dog was brave and loyal and I’m hoping is comfy and recovering


You tell ’em, Daughn. ThanQ for putting those two names together and hanging them around the figurative neck of the WA Compost.

Well, Mr. Austere, Religious Scholar, here’s your 72 dude virgins.

[I’ve been dying for an occasion to use this movement, #2 of the Verdi Requiem, a total blast to sing.]



SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

 Nor'easter:41 is a brass instrument I’ve never seen before (though perhaps I’ll recognize its name?).

Concerned Virginian

I think this is a “Verdi Cimbasso”, a combination of bass trombone and valve trombone. It’s used in only a few other places by Verdi, as in “Aida” and by Puccini. The Cimbasso has the same range as a tuba but the sound is more “mellow”.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

OK, that one I *hadn’t* heard of.
But it seems like it’d be useful in a marching band, as it doesn’t stick way out in front like a conventional trombone. And it looks a lot lighter than a tuba.

Deplorable Patriot

Bass trombone, I believe.

Cuppa Covfefe

Did someone say “Tuba”?
(I still haven’t forgetten that the wonderful cello intro was left out 🙂 ) (that strikes fear in the heart of all cellists who have to audition with it – excepting Leonard Rose, of course)… Not Oktubafest yet, but:

Deplorable Patriot

The cello intro is #1. Dies Irae is #2. Sad that the exciting parts are over in the first two movements, but, hey, at least there’s a reprise!

I had the great honor to be a solfege student of PHILIP CATELINET, the tubist of the London Philharmonic for whom the Tuba Concerto was written, back in the day at the Music Department of the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie-Mellon University). Mr. Catelinet taught tuba, composition, and solfege.

Pelosi Statement on Al-Baghdadi Raid
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. military raid:
“Americans salute the heroism, dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals and acknowledge the work of our partners in the region. We are relieved that no U.S. personnel died in this daring raid.
“The death of al-Baghdadi is significant, but the death of this ISIS leader does not mean the death of ISIS. Scores of ISIS fighters remain under uncertain conditions in Syrian prisons, and countless others in the region and around the world remain intent on spreading their influence and committing acts of terror.
“This month, the House passed a joint resolution on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 354-60 basis which rejects President Trump’s green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS. The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region. Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington.”


Nancy Pants is Pissed for sure, BFLY! Thanks for posting! What was it President Trump said?


We notified Russia, Syria, and Turkey that US would be performing an operation, got their buy in to stand down.
He also thanked all countries (Russia first in list) and Kurds in this morning’s announcement.
Snowflakes are melting over it. 😂😂


We notified the heads of state of countries with a ‘Need to Know’ – who would assist in this operation – what would Nancy Poopy Pants and Schmucky Stinks have contributed to this operation, BFLY?


They would’ve blown the OP, possibly getting our troops killed and letting the terrorists get away. And Then blamed POTUS for it. It’s their own damn fault, POTUS has NO reason to trust or respect them!!


Amen goes right there, BFLY!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

In their minds ALL of that isn’t a bug….it’s a FEATURE.
No wonder they’re ticked.


Wagging a pointed finger at POTUS and prancing out of a major policy meeting has consequences, Nancy. He won the election…hmmm, now where did I hear that? Deal with it!

Cuppa Covfefe

Piglosi doesn’t realize that she is NOT over the executive branch, and that VSGPDJT IS, and he is Commander-In-Chief.
Sowing division, hate, and lies is the only thing she and the DEMONicRATS can do. We should bill them back for all the time and money they have wasted…
And one of the best, if not THE BEST, that we have had in decades, if not a Century or more…


they do deserve strong smart strategic leadership and with POTUS they have it


Even more important than that (speaking as a veteran)? They KNOW, without a SHRED of doubt, that POTUS has their six!!!!

Cuppa Covfefe

VSGPDJT made sure that NO ONE knew about the OP except those with an absolute need to know, thereby putting as few troops at risk as possible. As you said, showing that he’s got their six.
Piglosi (like von der Leyen and, barf, AKK [Annegret Krampf-Karrenbauer]) wouldn’t know which way to point a gun… not that it matters because our guns don’t shoot straight once they heat up 🙁
Interesting, too, that VSGPDJT informed those with a need to know, including Russia, Syria, Turkey, and presumably the Kurds, AND THERE WERE NO LEAKS! (AFAIK)…
Kind of embarrassing and disgusting that our so-called enemies are better at keeping secrets than our so-called (or SHOULD-BE) friends are…..


As he said, the Russians have a LOT of weapons in that area – can’t take the chance of an accidental incident – the fact is, those 3 control overflight areas so it just made sense. Piglosi is a fool!


I think theyre so depraved they arent even getting pleasure from their own circle jerk. Its ok, theyre helping make all the entertainment industry that much more irrelevant and hopefully poor.


IMO the entertainment industry is being very entertaining. There’s nothing that tickles me more than whining overly privileged snowflakes losing their minds over POTUS victories.
We should each send them pics of dead roses bouquets.

I always thought he looked like he had shrunk into himself in that photo. Never thought about it being photo shopped, but looking at the proportions of just his head, not even considering his torso, compared to everyone else’s, it’s way off, his head is not that much smaller in real life.


Zero was brought in at the last moment, had no idea what was happening. Leon Panetta was running the show and didn’t let Zero in on it until it was too late for him to intervene.

Cuppa Covfefe

Leon Panetta… another DEMONicRAT from Kalifornistan…
I’m trying to remember when we had decent politicians from California, and other than Ronald Reagan (who wasn’t perfect) and Richard Nixon (who was Whittier than most people give him credit for), no one comes to mind… not even going back the 60 years I can remember (more or less 🙂 )…


I didn’t study Cali politics but I do remember studying Reagan as gov, quite eyeopening. I think his time as gov taught him a few things.


Devin Nunes.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. McCarthy might turn out to be OK, too. Forgot about them…
And, in other news, Kalifornistan is facing blackouts, and even more blackouts after this round is done. Looks like PG&E are in a pee-ing war with the PUC and do-nothing-useful-Newsom…

We’ve been learning to recognize truth by seeing the intent of their lies.
Cover-up for their failed FAKE messiah.


These lefties love to make the comparison:
Look who is in the bosses seat in the left picture and in the right.
PDJT loves to troll doesn’t he.
The left picture the supposed boss actually is shafted on the side on the only remaining seat available.Was he late for the meeting?
The right picture actually would show that an actual briefing has take place (look at all the documents) Also if it was staged would they show the jumble of cables.
On the left picture HRC has some kind of picture on her laptop.

That Betty Bowers person is weird – go look at her website. What real Christian says they are America’s Best Christian?
Who in the heck would follow someone like that?
She’s even asking for money in the first tweets.


I think this is a leftist account making fun of Christians – like the Sunday School Lady on SNL.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That is exactly what it is.
And if she had continued to focus on that…
But no, she had to go after Trump, meaning her site is NOT just about some of the really stupid people who happen to call themselves Christians. Not any more.

“The “Baghdadi raid” pics was staged, hours later. Trump was playing golf when it happened.”
In the evening, of October 26…when the sun sets at, what, 6-6:30pm, and the tweet announcing something big happened came at 8:39 pm when it was dark. Does some club around DC actually light their golf courses? Or do the idiots think that Trump uses glow in the dark balls or something?
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, only stupid, really stupid people are going to fall for that.


In case the Lefties do in the little penguin on twitter, here is my tweet. You might screenshot it. 🙂

She’s got it EXACTLY BACKWARDS! as befits DEMONicRAT projection.
How long until they start comparing Benghazi with Al-Baghdadi… ???
The only decisions Øbunghole was able to make were “do you want the towel wet or dry”…

Hmmm. Because you just want to get a head (falling down on the ground beside you)…
Would be interesting if somehow he were exposed as a fake Moslem, or an apostate Moslem. Then THEY would all be after him… hoist by his own retard…


Being gay automatically qualifies him for the death penalty

Deplorable Patriot

Yes, BO, he’s turning up the heat.


I am betting it was the dog that chased him into the tunnel – injured when he blew his suicide vest, most likely.

Deplorable Patriot

Look at that face! Yep, Belgian Malinois.


Wow, all of this hand wringing over nervous Nan, crying Chuck…not knowing in advance the mission to nail al bag…
AND, Russia, Turkey…knew…
Easy peasy…operational security critical to success and American lives. Minimal folks with “Need To Know”. OPSEC!
Russians, Turks needed to know minimal so they would NOT engage our forces.
100%, D’Rats have questionable motives these days.
– “RESIST” enflamed with TDS have D-Rats rabidly doing everything they can to harm America, Americans…including US Military.
ZERO reason to trust any D-Rats.

They’re NOT on America’s side. Not sure whose side they’re on. THEY are not really sure whose side they are on. But they ARE sure they’re not on America’s side.


Don’t miss that sentence after the highlight…

. . . But then they learned that the C.I.A. director, Leon E. Panetta, had already briefed several top lawmakers about Abbottabad without White House permission.

DiFi anyone?

Deplorable Patriot

The swamp’s perfidy never ends, either.


Uh…..that is NOT the same guy…….? At least, it is pretty clear to me. Are they supposed to be? The DM article was garbled on my end.


AGREE – not the same guy – look at the noses.


That and the distance between jaw bone and ear lobe – 2 things that jumped out at me.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I believe they ARE the same guy, but there is PHOTOGRAPHIC WIDENING in one case.


I will defer to your superior judgment but, IMO, the nose is even shaped differently.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

No reason to defer to my judgment! I simply say what I believe – always. I could be wrong.
But I’m actually impressed that I am now able to look at a photo and “thin it” or “widen it” in my mind. I’ve been working with a lot of memes that are accidentally thinned and widened by people using image software and changing graphics using corner and side handles. The ability to spot these cases and pick OTHER photos is very helpful in making quality memes.
KGB-CIA-DNC-MSM whatever is using thinning and widening, as well as colorization, to pull off disinfo ops. Snopes uses the disinfo in all possible ways to help the left.


There’s some disagreement on when he was released from the camp. 2004/5 or 2009

Sen. Daines on ISIS leader’s death: It is a great morning for America, it is a great day for the world
Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines says President Trump deserves so much credit for his relentless pursuit of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.


Sunday Morning Futures | Fox News – 10/27/2019 ( Dingell is a Dingbat)
Democratic lawmaker reacts to the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell thanks the brave men and women of the U.S. military, intelligence community and everyone who assisted in the takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.


She has quite a bit of responsibility at Fox – by Sunday – I do not think any one of us would look any better, Daughn – and – she has tons of guests, too – both financial and political – I think she needs a ‘spa’ day and a new ‘hairdresser’ – a good ‘stress facial’ would work wonders, too – jmho


Lol, Sweet Duchess, I think Miss Daughn’s talking about Dingel, not Maria. ☺️ Debbie looks like death today💀


OH – * slaps self upside head * BFLY –
Dingell always looks like she has been ‘dumpster diving’ – not only is her mind disheveled, but her clothes look like hand-me-downs – from Good Will – not making fun of Good Will – mind you – during the ‘Zero’ years – many working women found some nice business suits there.
Maria has to be patient with her – because Dingell gets lost in la-la land easily – the woman is a fruitcake!


Andrea Mitchell looked like an exhumed skeleton too. Saw her picture from some morning tweet.


I’ve still got it running on my TV – IMO, her hair looks greasy but I thought she looked ok otherwise. Maybe with this breaking news, she put in some late / early hours preparing…..?


Sunday Morning Futures | Fox News – 10/27/2019
Rep. Ratcliffe says all Americans should be grateful for the death of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi
Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe says the Trump administration ‘cut off the head of the snake.’


To snowflakes crying about POTUS thanking Russia:


Oh, Grow Up!!! To quote a favorite expression of Joan Rivers (may she R.I.P)


The U.S. intelligence documents not only confirms suspicions that the United States and some of its coalition allies had actually facilitated the rise of the ISIS in Syria – as a counterweight to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad- but also that ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency at facilities in Jordan in 2012.
The documents obtained by Judicial Watch also provide the first official documentation that the Obama administration was well aware that weapons were being shipped from Benghazi to rebel troops — including members from ISIS, the Al-Nusra Front and other Islamist terror groups — in Syria. An October 2012 report confirms thatr: “Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.” The deadly and shocking attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission that saw four Americans — including a U.S. ambassador — slaughtered by jihadists occurred just weeks after the weapons shipment.


From 2015. Just a suggestion, Molly, to make note when it is old info. Hope you don’t mind. Someone like me, with a ……(ahem)….. short attention span…. and a simple mind, is likely to miss it! LOL


will make sure to do that in the future


No offense intended, of course.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Sometimes the fact that OLD reports take on NEW RELEVANCE later rather than sooner is pretty cool. This is especially true when TIMELINE FILLING makes re-evaluation of the information EXTREMELY USEFUL. So knowing WHEN things came out is actually very helpful, but SO IS THE RE-REPORTING of old info.


Oh, absolutely. I am not saying not to post it – not at all!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Exactly! We need lots of old postings – AND lots of identification as such. MOAR TRUTH IS GOOD TRUTH!!!


Glad you put this up. Was thinking that one was going to be needed last night for this. 👍 👍


LOL!! Hey, you are not an automaton! Those batteries need to be recharged every so often! Yours apparently are of the Energizer Bunny sort! Hubby used to have those too!
I gave my hubby a heads up at bedtime last night, and this morning I read him Wictor’s tweets that Ozzy posted last night, he was too tired last night. We listened to PDJT’s speech while I was doing hubby’s toenails this morning. (Yeah, it’s a thing that needs doing now.)


If “sawing logs” means snoring, do read this:
Untreated apnea causes people to die in their sleep from heart attacks.

Deplorable Patriot

My grandmother was a champion snorer and lived to be 88 and 2/3 on the day. 27th of the month.
I could go on, but, people have been snoring from the beginning of time.


My mother also snorers all he life and past at 86.


Read in the thread theres more. Wapo….is wa pooop.

Plain Jane

I wish that photo would go viral.


Yeah, Right – Wasn’t that the body they threw over the side of a ship so he could not be identified?
Go back in your hidey hole, traitor!!!

Deplorable Patriot

Good one, there, Mikey, good one. We’re supposed to respect the enemy when the entity is worthy of it. This scumbag was not worthy.


i hope they encase the “parts” in bacon grease and pig’s blood when they dispose of them after determining they are his parts…


Always hoped bin laden was buried at sea with lots of pork.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It doesn’t work that way, unfortunately. They wouldn’t fear that in the slightest.
They believe that if you die while engaging in Jihad, you go directly to paradise NO MATTER WHAT, and you do so immediately. Buried with pigs makes no difference. (Anyone else who is going to paradise has to wait until judgment day.)


cowering in fear and crying doesn’t sound like engaging in jihad to me…

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yeah, well…I don’t know whether he gets a bye because he spent all of his time up until the last 5 minutes engaging in Jihad. Question for an expert and though I’ve met a few ex-Muslims who would qualify, I don’t know them well enough to contact them and ask.


but isn’t the manner of death important?
granted, they glorify suicide–and if he had come out fighting, guns blazing and committed suicide taking out a small company of “enemy fighters” that would be a different story.
running from a dog, cowering in fear, crying? doesn’t sound like a brave warrior to me. just saying

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

He was a coward. No argument there.
That doesn’t tell me what Islam says about whether he goes to paradise or not.

Deplorable Patriot

Does being buried with pigs mean bacon for all eternity? Asking for a friend.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Now see, THAT is an afterlife belief I could get behind!


When justice arrives in DC, can we strip this guy naked and put him in stocks on the National Mall? We could have a couple of pickup trucks of tomatoes parked next to him for those Americans who forgot to bring their own fruit to pelt him with.

These people are NUCKING FUTS!!!


I wish they did not force our military wear this ‘gay is ok’ ribbon that was given to the entire military during the Øbscene administration:comment image
Our SecDef and Chairman of Joint Chiefs are wearing this crap in the picture.


Since DADT was repealed during the Ø admin – the number of M/M sexual assaults has exceeded M/F sexual assaults in the military.


Oh, yuck! SMDH – using our military as a social justice petri dish should be considered to be outright treason, IMO. Trying to flat-out take our country down!!!


you’re welcome…
