Ep. 128A - A No Cease-Fire, Cease-Fire

A handful of breaking news stories crossed the wires today, but the one that caught a good deal of attention pertained to the alleged cease-fire between Turkey and Syria. This was a deal that was brokered by VP Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with their counterparts in Turkey. Shortly after the US claims that a 120 hour cease-fire has been agreed, Turkish officials come out and state that this is not a cease-fire, but rather a pause in the action. What we do know is that the US is supposed to move the Kurdish forces further south into Syria and further away from the Turkish border – exactly what Turkey wants. In essence, this is a quasi-deal to surrender the position of the Kurds – an American ally. The Kapital News is for peace and prosperity and wants to see an end to the endless wars. However, this cannot be done by shooting from the hip. This needs to be done in a prudent and well thought out manner in order to prevent the kind of scenario in which we find ourselves. Following the “cease-fire” announcement, President Donald Trump made claims that he was the only one who could get this done and that this cease-fire will prevent millions of lives from being lost. This is a ridiculous notion on a few fronts, but primarily because this was not a problem until President Trump made his quick decision to remove US forces from Syria. This then led to the immediate advance of the Turkish military into Syria. This is akin to breaking something and then claiming how great you are when you fix it or attempt to fix it. In addition to this, within the next five days, President Erdogan of Turkey will be visiting with President Putin in Russia – just a coincidence we imagine. Other stories discussed pertain to a “miscommunication” from Mick Mulvaney, acting Chief of Staff to the President, and Director of the Office of Management and Budget, regarding the “quid pro quo” on the President’s phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart. We briefly discuss the Brexit deal, but we’re not holding our breath that this deal will be passed by Parliament in the coming days. Also, an article in Vanity Fair calls into question some irregular trading activity that may have proven quite profitable surrounding trades in the US futures markets that may have paid-off big by timing correctly President Trump’s tweets surrounding the US/China trade talks. Finally, someone in the mainstream in calling this into question. This is an abuse of power and in the very least, it needs to be investigated by the proper authorities.
