Syrian Army launches heavy attack across southern Idlib

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) artillery and missile teams unleashed a heavy attack across the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate this morning. According to a military report from the nearby Hama Governorate, the Syrian Army heavily targeted several front-lines towns and villages in southern Idlib, with a primary focus on Al-Badriyah and Al-Huwayjah. With the Syrian and Russian air forces mostly grounded due to poor weather conditions, the SAA has increased their strikes in order to weaken the jihadist forces in the Idlib countryside. The report added that the Syrian Army is now targeting the jihadist defenses in the western countryside of the Aleppo Governorate; these strikes are targeting the Kafr Naha and Al-Zahra’a areas. While the Syrian Arab Army controls most of Aleppo city, the jihadist rebels continue to hold onto some areas at the outskirts of the provincial capital.

Rudy Giuliani's late-career taste for wealth led him to lucrative foreign consulting work, and those business ties apparently prevented him from becoming secretary of state after he helped get his old friend Donald Trump elected president in 2016, The Washington Post and The New York Times recount. But Giuliani joined the president as an unpaid personal attorney in 2018, the Times adds, and since then, "step by step, he has escorted President Trump to the brink of impeachment." Without Giuliani's "push for money and frank yearning for relevance, the Trump Ukrainian initiative might never have amounted to much more than presidential tweetstorms," and Trump wouldn't be weeks from impeachment, the Times reports. Yet Giuliani was back in Ukraine last week, still publicly digging for (or trying to will into being) dirt on Democrats.

Unknown gunmen attack Syrian intelligence checkpoint in Daraa

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – A group of unknown gunmen carried out an attack on a checkpoint belonging to the Syrian Air Force Intelligence in eastern Daraa this morning. According to local reports, the gunmen, who were suspected to be members of a Free Syrian Army (FSA), Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) or Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sleeper cell, opened fire on the checkpoint before fleeing in an unknown direction. The reports said there were casualties among the Syrian Air Force Intelligence personnel; however, the total dead and wounded is unknown. These attacks by the FSA, HTS, and ISIS sleeper cells have decreased over the last four months, thanks in large part to the increase of Syrian Army troops in the Daraa Governorate. However, with the absence of Syrian military personnel in some of the reconciled towns in the Daraa Governorate, it has been difficult to crackdown on these sleeper cells.

Joe Biden says he would consider Elizabeth Warren as a running mate, wonders if she'd pick him

Axios' Mike Allen sat down with former Vice President Joe Biden for Sunday's Axios on HBO, and he noted that when asked about potential running mates recently, Biden mentioned several women but didn't name Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Biden said sure, he would add Warren to the list, but even talking about vice presidential picks is "presumptuous" at this point. "The question is, would she add me to her list?" he added. Allen also addressed the elephant in the room, asking Biden what he believed his son Hunter was doing "for an extraordinary amount of money" on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma while he was vice president. "I don't know what he was doing," Biden said. "I know he was on the board, I found out he was on the board after he was on the board. And that was it." "Isn't this something you want to get to the bottom of?" Allen asked. "No, because I trust my son," Biden said. "There's nothing on its face that was wrong. Look, if you want to talk about problems, you know, let's talk about Trump's…

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) doesn't quite have his impeachment facts straight. "In modern history, we've never gone after impeaching a president in the first term," McCarthy said in a Monday appearance on Fox News ahead of the House Judiciary Committee's second public impeachment hearing.

Green specifically said he was "concerned that if we don't impeach this president, he will get re-elected" and "say he has been vindicated."

The Wait Is Over: DOJ Inspector General Report On Alleged Obama-Era FISA Abuses Against Trump Team Drops Today

Well, the day has arrived. The long-awaited report from Michael Horowitz, the Department of Justice’s inspector general, on the alleged FISA abuses that occurred under the Obama administration will be released. We already have some tidbits that this report doesn’t corroborate the allegation that the Obama White House spied on the Trump campaign, but it will conclude that there were deviations from department policy concerning the process in obtaining these warrants. Okay, let’s play on that for a minute. That’s still not good. The liberal media will chalk this up as a win for them because President Trump’s accusation won’t be legitimized or something. There’s still an ongoing pattern of FBI officials going off the reservation in order to get what they want. We know they didn’t want Trump to be president.

Republican counsel appears to disregard previous testimony about Ukraine during impeachment hearing

Republican lawyer Steve Castor seemed to forget about some previous impeachment testimony during his own appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on Monday. Castor argued that Ukraine didn't feel pressure from President Trump to investigate his domestic political arrivals and that the country's government wasn't even aware of a freeze in U.S. military aid until the end of August. Previous witnesses in the House Intelligence Committee's hearings, however, had a different story. Their testimony claimed that at least some Ukrainian officials knew about the hold up the same day as Trump's infamous call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which spurred the impeachment process. How strange that Castor repeats the argument that the Ukrainians didn’t know the aid was withheld until late August, when we have documents and testimony dating it to July 25 if not earlier. — Blake News (@blakehounshell) December 9, 2019 #CastorLiesCastor: Ukraine officials "did not learn it was paused until the pause was reported…

Brian Eno Shares New Song “Everything’s On The Up With The Tories” Ahead Of UK Election

The UK general election will take place this Thursday, and Brian Eno has shared quite an original song ahead of the vote. Eno has been extremely vocal about his politics for decades now, and he was among the public figures who signed a letter expressing support for Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the upcoming election. Naturally, the title of his new song, "Everything's On The Up With The Tories," is deeply tongue-in-cheek. It's a very British jaunt that lays into the party of Boris Johnson. Some lyrics: "Everything's up the creek with the Blue Boys/ They're selling off the NHS to cowboys/ They're cutting back on nurses, but investing it in hearses, the nitwits, and the we-don't-have-a-clue boys." And more: "Everything's on the up with the righties/ Who worship at the feet of Trump Almighty/ There's people in the street without a bloody crust to eat/ But everything's on the up with the Tories." If you're in the UK, find a guide to voting here and check out Eno's song below.
