John Kerry Makes Huge Admission About Obama’s Knowledge of Assad’s Chemical Weapons

Published

on

Former Secretary of State John Kerry spoke on Wednesday revealing that the Obama administration indeed knew about Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had kept some of his chemical weapons despite an international agreement to remove the stockpile his country possessed by 2014.

This, of course, is contrary to Obama’s own words on the matter.

“We said we got a hundred percent of the declared weapons out, which is what the Organization for the [Prohibition] of Chemical Weapons was able to track,” Kerry said on Fox News. “We knew that Assad had kept some, and we tried to go to the [United Nations] Security Council, and, unfortunately, Russia played games and we didn’t get there.”

In 2013, the United States and Russia struck a deal to remove Syria’s entire arsenal of chemical weapons from the country by the middle of 2014. Kerry and other Obama administration officials publicly touted the deal as a major success.

“We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out,” Kerry said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in 2014.

In 2015, however, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) told the Obama administration that it had found traces of sarin and VX nerve agent at the Syrian government’s Scientific Studies and Research Center in the district of Barzeh, near Damascus.

A U.N. report later concluded that the Assad regime was responsible for a chemical attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun in April 2017. According to the OPCW and other organizations, the regime has used chemical weapons in several other instances since 2014, including chlorine in a chemical-weapons attack on the city of Douma in April.

Kerry said Wednesday that he agreed with President Donald Trump’s military response to Assad’s suspected use of chemical weapons in Douma.

Stop the presses. Did a Democrat just agree with something President Trump did while in office? Is the world about to end or something? It seems like the world is about to end or something.

This just goes to show you how many egregious mistakes that the Obama administration made during his time in office. Well, then again, a lot of these “mistakes” were done on purpose, so yeah, there’s that.

At the end of the day, Trump has done a phenomenal job at undoing the damage to our foreign policy that Obama’s “leading from behind” caused, and thus, we should all be thankful for his leadership.

Magnetic Poles Shifting So Often GPS Can’t Keep Up

This is the sort of thing that makes you both scratch your head and *slightly* freak out at the same time.

Published

On the list of ostensibly wacky things occurring in the world today, one of the strangest is occurring in the area surrounding the no-man’s land of the North Pole.

Sometimes we take for granted just how much we use magnetic compasses.  Sure, they seem antiquated, and frankly cute accessories for your pre-teen, Boy Scout nephew, but much of our entire daily life is based on this knowledge.

Unlike previous civilizations, who relied heavily on the heavens for information about planet earth, modern humans are far more self-centered.  We have been exploring the planet first, and space’s gyrations around us in a secondary manner.

Now, a terribly frightening prospect is upon us; namely, that our magnetic north is shifting beneath our metaphorical feet, throwing our entire navigational process into question. 

Rapid and erratic movements of Earth’s north magnetic pole have prompted an early update to a model that assists with navigation. The scheduled fix was supposed to happen on January 15, but the US government shutdown has forced an unwelcome delay.

The magnetic north pole is shifting at an unprecedented rate. Over the last 30 years, the rate of distance that the magnetic north pole moves per year has sped up, around 15km per year to around 55km per year, according to Nature.

Unlike the static geographic north pole, the north magnetic pole is in constant flux, influenced by the movements of iron-rich fluids deep below the Earth’s crust. Or at least that’s the theory — the whole thing is still somewhat of a scientific mystery.

How did we determine this?

The World Magnetic Model (WMM) provides a five-year forecast of the Earth’s magnetic field, which assists with navigation. But the rapid and irregular movements of the north magnetic pole over the past three years have made the 2015 WMM inaccurate. An unprecedented early update was supposed to happen on 15 January 2019, but that’s been bumped to January 30 owing to the ongoing US government shutdown, reports Nature.

The WMM forecasts are produced by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of the US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the UK Defence Geographic Centre.

So, what exactly is causing this?

The WMM describes the primary engine responsible for magnetic pole movement: The Earth’s core. Beginning in late 2014, however, the core geomagnetic field started to shift in a way that hadn’t been predicted, wrote BGS scientist Will Brown at his blog.

On the fringes of the New Wave movement, this shift has been linked to a doomsday scenario in which the poles actually flip, sending the entire world into chaos.

Mainstream science, however, has a much less dire outlook…predictably.

Two Can Play That Game: Trump Cancels Nancy’s Fancy Trip After SOTU Scuffle

We all know that President Trump isn’t one to forgive or forget easily.

The bitter fight between Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi is growing ever more trite as the government remains gridlocked over the issue of border security.

Nancy Pelosi has become the de facto democratic target during this time of federal malfeasance, having not only refused to meet with the President to discuss an end to the shutdown, but also attempting to cancel POTUS’ State of The Union address on account of a “lack of security”.

Of course, the Secret Service were quick to lambast Pelosi for her erroneous scheme.

We all know that President Trump isn’t one to forgive or forget easily, hence his recent rebuttal to Pelosi’s nonsense.

President Donald Trump hit back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, claiming in a letter that he had postponed planned congressional trips abroad to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan because of the government shutdown.

The remarkable counter-punch came in the form of a terse letter to Pelosi blasted out to reporters and promoted by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter. It marked the president’s first public response to Pelosi’s Wednesday morning request to postpone the annual State of the Union address at the end of the month, citing security concerns stemming from the lengthy shutdown.

“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” Trump wrote. “We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate.”

Trump pulled no punches on the timing of his decree, either, waiting until one hour before Pelosi was set to depart to make his decision public.
