If you have any real questions about what is really going on, just take a look at this latest example of utter hypocrisy and unconstitutional spending. The Trump administration, after putting a hold on funding the White Helmets in Syria who are tied to the false flag attacks and have been proven to be Islamic jihadis, has put out a statement that they will begin refunding the group to the tune of $6.6 million of your tax dollars!
No, this is not 3D chess. It’s unconstitutional. It’s unlawful. It’s criminal. Yet, the State Department issues a statement saying that President Donald Trump authorized the funding of $6.6 million of taxpayer money to these jihadis.
The Syrian Civil Defense is known as the White Helmets. In the statement, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert wrote, “the vital, life-saving operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets.”
“The United States Government strongly supports the White Helmets who have saved more than 100,000 lives since the conflict began including victims of Assad’s chemical weapons attacks,” the press release continues.

No, they have not done that and we’ve reported on the fabrications of their “rescues,” as well as documented video evidence that they seem to have been the ones in possession of sarin gas. We also have printed documents in which the White Helmets declare they engage in playing out scenarios that are not real, and they have been captured in pictures and on video engaging in Islamic jihad violence.
The full text of the statement reads:
The President has authorized the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of State to release approximately $6.6 million for the continuation of the vital, life-saving operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets, and the UN’s International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM).
The United States Government strongly supports the White Helmets who have saved more than 100,000 lives since the conflict began, including victims of Assad’s chemical weapons attacks. These heroic first responders have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and continue to be deliberately targeted by the Syrian regime and Russian airstrikes. Since 2013, more than 230 of these brave volunteers have been killed while working to save innocent Syrian civilians.
The IIIM’s work is vital to assisting the investigation and prosecution of persons responsible for the most serious crimes under international law committed in Syria since March 2011. Their mandate, collecting and analyzing evidence of violations of international humanitarian law and human rights abuses will help ensure those responsible for these crimes are ultimately held accountable.
Where in the Constitution does President Trump have the authority to authorize these payments? Nowhere. His duty is very limited in the Constitution, and as far as spending, Congress is not authorized to send our money to our enemies like this.
According to a State Department official, the US has given the White Helmets $33 million of your money illegally since 2013.
While the US continues to push the propaganda that the White Helmets are “allies” and want to stabilize Syria, the opposite seems to have been true.
In fact, you might be interested to know that the White Helmets were not founded by Syrians, but by a British mercenary, James Le Mesurier, in 2013.
Here is Mesurier in a speech in 2015 explaining how the White Helmets are used to gain public trust.
In a very informative piece by Whitney Webb at Mint Press News on Le Mesurier, she writes, “The group has been lauded for its “humanitarian” efforts in Syria, but they have actually functioned more as a logistics and propaganda arm of Syria’s al-Qaeda branch, complete with training from Le Mesurier.”
Since they were founded in 2013, much of Western media has sought to elevate the White Helmets as the “bravest” and most heroic of Syrians. They have been the subject of a Netflix documentary, which won an Oscar, and has consistently been plastered across TV screens in surprisingly well-produced videos showing them removing children from rubble in war-torn areas claimed by Syria’s “rebels.”
However, missing from this unambiguously positive coverage has been the group’s ties to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, their doctoring of footage, their role in executing civilians and their use of children – both dead and alive – as props for producing pro-intervention propaganda. Also absent is how the White Helmets have received over $123 million from 2013 to 2016 from the U.S. and UK governments, as well as Western NGOs and Gulf state monarchies.
While numerous articles have been devoted to dispelling the propaganda that surrounds the group and detailing their shady ties to known terrorist organizations like Syria’s al-Qaeda branch Al-Nusra Front, significantly less attention has been focused on how the group was created, particularly on the man who founded them – James Le Mesurier, a British private security specialist, and former British military intelligence officer.
Furthermore, all of this funding begins as Russia warns, as it did previously, of more coming false flag attacks in Syria. TASS Russian News Agency reported on June 11, 2018:
MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. Militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) with the participation of the US special ops units are preparing a provocation involving chloride in the Syrian Deir ez-Zor province to provide an opportunity for the US-led coalition of a new attack on the country’s state facilities, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Monday.
“According to the information confirmed through three independent channels in Syria, the command of the so-called ‘Free Syrian Army’ aided by the forces of the US special ops units are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical warfare agents in the Deir ez-Zor province,” he said.
According to Konashenkov, FSA militants have delivered chlorine cylinders to the Syrian Deir ez-Zor province to simulate another “chemical attack against civilians.” “After being published in western media a staged video is set to initiate a missile strike on Syria’s state facilities by the US-led coalition and justify an offensive operation by militants against Syrian governmental forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River,” he said, adding that Russia’s Defense Ministry warns that the use of such provocations for destabilization of the environment on the Syrian territory is unacceptable.
Why we continue to be in Syria and why we continue to unconstitutional spend money in that area is anyone’s guess. Some believe it is to topple President Bashar al-Asaad and bring in a gas pipeline for Saudi Arabia. That very well may be the ultimate reason and the American people have just been being played over the past year or so concerning backing off of Syria, but the people love Asaad in Syria. So, to what appears to be a majority in Syria, Asaad is not a necessarily a dictator.
In either case, funding, training and arming Islamic jihadis whether with actual arms or propaganda money is something we absolutely should not be involved in and President Trump seemed to be moving in that direction. However, he has switched course. I’m not really surprised given that he’s launched two unconstitutional attacks on Syria without Congressional authorization per our Constitution.
This is a bad move by the Trump administration, and an unconstitutional one.
