In a surprise Christmas visit to our troops in Iraq, President Donald Trump told our soldiers that the U.S.A. is “no longer the suckers” due to his military policies and their fighting spirit.

Trump and First Lady Melania hopped a military flight to visit the troops even as the press pool wondered just where the president was over the last few days. Turns out Trump slipped the press and winged his way to Iraq when they weren’t looking.

According to the Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq on Wednesday — their first visit to a war zone since the sitting president took office nearly two years ago.

They left from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland shortly after midnight with a small group of journalists and aides in tow. Trump was in the country for roughly three hours before the White House confirmed his whereabouts.

The president delivered a speech to the rank and file at Al Asad Airbase, took selfies with the troops and met with military leaders in Iraq.

“I want to come and pay my respects most importantly to the great soldiers,” he said of the visit. “Great troopers we have here.”

This visit comes on the tail of Trump’s announcement that he intends to begin pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, a move that surprised many, including his own supporters.

“We’ve knocked them out. We’ve knocked them silly,” Trump said of ISIS on Wednesday.

“We’re no longer the suckers, folks,” the president said of the decision to leave Syria. “We’re respected again as a nation.”

The president also noted that he has been telling his generals to wrap it up for months.

“They said again, recently, can we have more time? I said, ‘Nope. You can’t have any more time. You’ve had enough time. We’ve knocked them out. We’ve knocked them silly,'” he said of ISIS’ operations in Syria. “I will tell you that I’ve had some very good talks with President Erdogan who wants to knock them out also and he’ll do it. And others will do it to. Because we are in their region. They should be sharing the burden of costs and they’re not.”

Trump and Melania mixed with the troops taking selfies, shaking hands, and chatting amiably.

Media Finally Debunks Nutty Enviro Claim We Have Only 12 Years to ‘Save Earth’

“There is no scientific consensus, much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem,” the AP wrote in its Monday fact-check.

Climate change

The absurd claim that we only have 12 years before the earth is destroyed by climate change has become part of the Democrat mantra for the 2020 election cycle. But, at last one media outlet has finally moved to debunk the claim. This week, after the accomplishment-free “Beto” O’Rourke jumped into the race for president, even the left-wing Associated Press had to admit that he was all wet with his idea that the earth is doomed in “12 years” if we don’t “do something” about global warming. On Monday, the AP published a fact check of O’Rourke’s claim that the we will all die in 12 years if climate change is ignored. O’Rourke made the absurd claim that we have only 12 years left to live during his kick off for his run for the Democratic presidential nomination in Keokuk, Iowa. “This is our final chance. The scientists are absolutely unanimous on this. That we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis,” O’Rourke piously exclaimed. But the AP found O’Rourke’s proclamation a little bit less than the truth. “There is no scientific consensus, much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem,” the AP wrote in its Monday fact-check. https://twitter.com/AP_Politics/status/1106975520779051014 Of course, as he has pretty much already proven, O’Rourke is not a thinker and does not have his own ideas. He was merely spouting the idea du jour about globaloney as recently espoused by communist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who said the earth will be destroyed in 12 years unless we act now to prevent climate change. Ocasio-Cortez delivered this fact-free line at a Jan. 21 event marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day at which she called climate change “our World War II.” Um… first of all, “our…

BOMBSHELL: Report Claims Ukraine Colluded With Hillary Campaign to Defeat Trump

How about them apples?

All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign. Well, that seems like kind of a problem, huh? Will the mainstream media care to report?? The Hillary Clinton campaign has seemingly been routinely caught working with outside sources to gain insight on Trump. Why is there no media coverage on that angle? Why such hypocrisy? Why such a double standard? Those were rhetorical. Now, it seems as though a foreign government official once offered the Hillary campaign information on then-candidate Donald Trump. From American Mirror: A high-ranking member in the Verkohvna Rada of Ukraine is accusing the head of the country’s anti-corruption bureau of leaking information about associates of Donald Trump to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, according to the television station 112 UA. MP…
