Turkey Unleashes Military Assault In Syria In Aftermath Of US Pulling Troops From Region

Published

on

The planned Turkish military operation has begun in the northern portion of Syria, the area from which President Trump withdrew American troops, a move that has left conservatives very divided concerning whether or not they should support such a move.

Kurdish fighters announced on Wednesday that warplanes were bombing civilian areas in the region, a fact that’s likely going to cause more controversy over the removal of troops by the president.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted that the maneuvers being carried out against Syrian Kurdish forces – which Ankara considers terrorists allied with a Kurdish insurgency within Turkey – are part of Operation Peace Spring.

“Our mission is to prevent the creation of a terror corridor across our southern border, and to bring peace to the area,” he said in a tweet. “#OperationPeaceSpring will neutralize terror threats against Turkey and lead to the establishment of a safe zone, facilitating the return of Syrian refugees to their homes.”

A spokesperson for the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces says Turkish warplanes have “started to carry out airstrikes on civilian areas”, causing a “huge panic among people of the region.”

The Kurds have been a longtime ally of the United States in our battle to bring an end to radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS. These fighters have requested air support from U.S. forces in response to the air strikes on civilians.

Trump has ordered the U.S. military to not get involved.

A small group of Turkish forces first entered northeastern Syria Wednesday morning near the towns of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ayn, Bloomberg reported. Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency later said Turkish artillery units have been shelling suspected Syrian Kurdish targets in Tal Abayd, while two mortar shells fired from Ras al-Ayn struck the Turkish border town of Ceylanpinar. No injuries were reported in the latter attack.

This situation may turn out to hurt us in the long run, particularly if our allies don’t feel they can count on our help in their times of need. The next ISIS or some other radical group springs up, we may be on our own.

Evidence Suggests Hydroxychloroquine Is A Relatively Safe Drug To Take

Published

on

One of the big narratives that liberal Democrats have been pushing since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak is that hydroxychloroquine is not a safe medication for folks to take in order to treat the symptoms that result from COVID-19. This is a medication that has been FDA approved for a very, very long time. It’s extremely common and is mostly used to treat malaria in third world countries. Some folks have been on it for many, many years without any harmful side effects. Yet, the moment President Trump says something about how it could be a useful treatment option for those who get coronavirus, the mainstream media immediately comes out against it, hoping to politicize it so they can make an anti-Trump narrative out of it. Well, as it turns out, there’s plenty of evidence coming out now that suggests the drug is relatively safe to take. Dr. Alieta Eck prescribed hydroxychloroquine for some of her patients who suffered from COVID-19 symptoms and stated she felt confident it would be a safe form of treatment. “My feeling was that it was not going to do any harm, which is true. It’s a very safe medicine,” Eck said. Here’s some more information on this from The Washington Examiner: The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of hydroxychloroquine in 1955. The approved uses include treatment for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. In late March of this year, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine, which allowed state and local supplies of the drug to be supplemented from the strategic national stockpile. “It is a very safe drug as far as drugs go,” said Dr. Kevin Pham, a physician and a visiting policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “But we should remember that there are no drugs that…

New Job Report Released Reveals Jobless Claims Fall To Lowest Numbers Since March

Published

on

A new report from the Labor Department has some much needed good news concerning the economy here in the United states, revealing that new applications for unemployment benefits for last week have hit the lowest level of new claims since the pandemic started spreading across the United States in March. Economists had predicted that the new claims would be somewhere around 1.42 million. Check out the details of the report from The Washington Examiner: The weekly totals for workers claiming jobless benefits have been extremely high since the pandemic hit the U.S. By comparison, weekly jobless claims pre-coronavirus were in the 200,000 range for the entire country. Now, California alone had more than 244,000 initial claims for the week ending July 25. After jobless claims skyrocketed in March, with 6.9 million filing for benefits for the week ending March 28, the number of workers claiming unemployment benefits dropped precipitously through the end of May. Since then, new jobless claims have hovered above 1 million, and ticked up in the prior two weeks. Jobless claims for the week ending July 18 were 1.43 million, and claims for the week prior were 1.42 million. The highest insured unemployment rates for the week ending July 18 were in Nevada, 24.9%, Puerto Rico, 23.5%, Hawaii, 21%, California, 18.1%, and Louisiana, 17.2%. While this is good news, the truth of the matter is, recovery for jobs is still moving rather slow. Some of that has to do with spikes in coronavirus cases happening in certain states around the country. A lot of it is that states where things are under better control, the economy is not opening up fast enough. The longer businesses are restricted or shutdown altogether, the more these places hemorrhage profits and end up having to close down or let go of…
