In other news, Trump has chosen his own golf resort in Jupiter, Florida for the location of next summer's G-7 summit. Great idea to put his corruption on full display a few months before the election.

Meanwhile, analysts at Bloomberg say Boris Johnson's next Brexit deal is better than no deal, but it's actually worse than Theresay May's deal and would lead to lower economic growth. As of right now, it looks like Johnson may not have enough votes to pass this deal in parliament.

Finally, Mikes Pence and Pompeo have negotiated a fake "ceasefire" with Turkey that calls on the Kurds to surrender and flee their own homes.

Pence says there will “a pause in military operations for 120 hours” to allow the U.S.-allied Syrian Kurds to withdraw.

The vice president says the U.S. and Turkey have “mutually committed to peaceful resolution and future for the safe zone.”

The so-called "safe zone" is literally not safe for ethnic Kurds. That's the whole point of the zone. It's an ethnic clearing zone.

The American government has legitimized ethnic cleansing of Syria's Kurds by endorsing the "safe zone" and Erdogan's claim to Kurdish territory.

    If that rat that famously hauled a slice of pizza down a flight of steps in NY City showed up at Trump’s club and ran across the dining room table with an entire pie it’s mouth it would class the joint up quite a bit.

    Make The IRA Great Again!

    Trump used the phrase “They had to clean the area out.” to describe Turkey’s actions towards the Kurds. I doubt Trump has enough brain cells to understand the nature of what he said but… Jesus!
