REPORT: 'Whistleblower' Who Complained About Trump's Call to Ukrainian President Zelensky RevealedEverything Trump's defenders feared about the whistleblower is true. According to a report from RealClear Investigations, the whistleblower is 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella.

Ciaramella is a holdover from the Obama administration and a registered Democrat. He's been accused of leaking like crazy. He worked with Joe Biden, he's a vocal critic of President Trump, and he invited a DNC operative inside the White House to attend meetings. He also helped instigate the investigation into Russia collusion. So, of course, Democrats would believe his second-hand complaint about President Trump's phone conversation with Ukranian President Zelensky over the actual transcript of the call itself.
Op-ed:
Dead By Rightful Design
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

"Last night was a great night for the United States and for the world. A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, has violently been eliminated.”
- President Donald Trump on the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

There were no U.S. casualties during the compound raid, with but a military working dog named Conan sustaining minor injuries when Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Caliph Ibrahim, blew himself and his three young children up...children he had been using as human shields...in a true act of cowardliness after realizing his fate had been sealed...sealed thanks to President Trump.

It was an operation five months in the making...an operation involving joint ground intel as well as ongoing monitoring which culminated in a daring, two-hour nighttime raid on al-Baghdadi's compound. Located in Idlib province's Barisha hamlet, this particular hamlet and compound had been under our surveillance for some time due to its being in what was left of ISIS held territory in northern Syria.

And so the actual lead-up to al-Baghdidi's death started around 5p.m. EST last Saturday evening when after having finished rehearsing the raid in Erbil, Iraq, eight helicopters carrying teams of elite U.S. troops included Delta Force commandos, launched from al-Assad airbase in Anbar province Iraq and flew over what President Trump called "very, very dangerous territory" towards the compound where “al-Baghdadi spent his last moments in utter fear, in total panic and dread, terrified of the American forces bearing down on him.” Finally meeting his demise in what was a dead end tunnel...Abu Bakr al-Baghadadi detonated his suicide vest and blew himself and his three children straight into hell.

And know that al-Baghdidi is indeed dead contrary to what the naysayers are now saying as DNA tests done about 15 minutes after his “very messy demise” positively confirmed that that the dead man indeed was ISIS founder and Iraqi national Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In fact, U.S. teams on the ground as per President Trump, "brought body parts back" so there could be no questions as to who was killed, unlike Barack HUSSEIN Obama who had our military, “respectfully” dump Osama bin Laden's body into the sea. More like destroying the evidence I'd say.



And while our president's critics are now chiming in with condemnation regarding his actions taken...you can read about that in my RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS partner Craig Andresen's article, He Died Like a Dog...also know that President Trump tentatively approved the final mission about a week before it commenced. 

Rightfully keeping the mission a secret, Trump knew that to do otherwise would see a number of Democrats “letting slip” certain key bits of information, thus jeopardizing not only the mission to take out the world's most wanted man, but would also put those involved in said mission in serious danger. 
 
In fact, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo agreed with President Trump's decision to keep the mission for the most part mum saying that “there were only a handful of us that were dialed into this operation, myself and a handful of others, and then those, of course, who were executing the mission, in the run-up to this.” Also according to Pompeo those involved in the operation had two priorities, ensuring information security and executing the mission...and I believe this is exactly how all critical operations should be handled...as in the less who know the better.

We’ve been tracking this guy for a long time, we wanted to take no risk that anyone would ever compromise the operation, so we were very focused on information security...and we wanted to make sure we were doing it right, and so we were focused on delivering the outcome that we got,” were Mike Pompeo exact words. 

And so successful was our president and those few who knew in keeping this operation a secret that only now has it become known that two or three previously planned missions were scrapped until every last detail for success was locked into place.

But while it was our U.S. forces alone who actually went in and accomplished what they were tasked with doing... a task that also saw at least nine members of ISIS killed in addition to al-Baghdadi with many of them being his family members...the mission itself was still a joint operation of sorts...a chain of both information and cooperation...with trusted Iraqi officials, Vladimir Putin, as well as the Kurds living in Syria's northeast quadrant...being given a heads-up as to what was going to take place. Even Turkey was given a cursory heads-up no matter that they deem the YPG Kurds to be terrorists, for it was those very YPG Kurds who also saw the danger ISIS posed not only to the region in general, but to their all important quest for an autonomous state, thus solidifying their cooperation. 

In fact, it was the commander-in-chief of the Kurdish forces in Syria, one Mazloum Abdi, who admitted in a tweet after the operation was completed that the intelligence gathering that led to al-Baghdai's death had indeed began in earnest about five months ago...thus proving to Trump's critics that this was no impulsive move on our president's part. And Commander Abdi also announced within hours of al-Baghdadi's death that U.S. backed anti-ISIS forces remaining in northern Syria had also taken out Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, a close associate of al-Baghdadi, and that they did so courtesy of SDF intel shared with our military.

And then just this past Monday, Commander Abdi told NBC News that another of his SDF informants actually helped lead the Americans to al-Baghdadi’s compound. Adding that the still unnamed informant had gained al-Baghdadi's trust to such a degree that he was a "facilitator and logistics aide" involved in helping al-Baghdadi move from numerous safe houses in Idlib province before settling into the compound where he met his end, and also that the informant provided personal details about al-Baghdadi, including the fact that he always wore a suicide vest when traveling so that he could blow himself up if cornered.

And as I write this neither the Pentagon nor the White House has officially commented on a "high-level mole" being part of the mission to kill or capture al-Baghdadi. And yet that is not out of the whelm of possibilities as "moles" have at times been an integral part of such types of operations.

But to me what is most critical to this mission's success was the fact that Russia..who controls the much needed airspace over Idlib province...made no attempt to stop said mission as Putin...remember he had been informed of the mission and his country is part of the U.S. led coalition against terror...knew that not only is ISIS a destabilizing force in the region, but that they are an enemy of all civilized men.

And so at around 3:30am Syrian time after the mission was successfully completed... including our gathering up of ISIS intel and documents laying out their future plans...U.S. choppers took off for the return journey to Erbil, Iraq, flying unchallenged over the so-called “badlands of Syria,” briefly crossing into Turkey, then into northeastern Syria, continuing on to the Kurdish held north of Iraq, the very place where the long hunt for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had really begun. After all it was in Camp Bucca where al-Baghdadi was reportedly held back as late as 2009, only to be “unconditionally” released to the Iraqi's who in time let him go...and so began al-Baghdadi's unrelenting killing spree. 



And so the seedlings of what became ISIS...seedlings that were actually planted in Iraq back in 2009...grew to where on June 29, 2014, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi proclaimed that a "caliphate" was now straddling both Syria and Iraq and that it was under ISIS control.

But the question still remaining is what exactly allowed what became “Operation Kayla Mueller”...named in honor of the young American aid worker who was kidnapped, tortured, and then killed on al-Baghdadi's orders...to go forward? The fact is that up until a little over a month ago we still had little if any serious leads as to al-Baghdadi's current whereabouts. But a much needed break finally came in September courtesy of Iraqi National Intelligence Service officials who were able to identify a Syrian man who had recently moved his own family from Iraq to Syria as being the same man who had smuggled into Syria's Idlib province through Turkey the wives of two of al-Baghdadi’s brothers. In fact, it was also learned that this very same smuggler had previously helped smuggle al-Baghdadi’s children from Iraq into Syria, again through Turkey. And luckily these same Iraqi officials were then able to “bribe,” if you will, the smuggler and his wife, along with one of al-Baghdadi’s own nephews, into providing information about the route al-Baghdadi had used along with the final destination of those traveling with him.     
   
And in early October, the Iraqi's turned over their now confirmed intel to the C.I.A. who then in turn were able to locate al-Baghdadi, with the Iraqis continuing to provide updated real-time information to President Trump once al-Baghdadi had settled into the Barisha compound. And so the man who was always on the move out of fear for his own safety was now back in Syria where he had been very many times before.

And here I'll include as a side note that back in 2013, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was indeed in Syria masquerading as one of the “supposed” Syrian rebels, and it was here in Aleppo that it appears he met with Sen. John McCain as can be witnessed by these photos. It would have been interesting to know exactly what, if anything, transpired between these two men or if McCain had any idea of who Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi really was or of what evils he soon would become capable of.

But with that being but an interesting yet mute point, the fact remains that once the Iraqi's shared said intel with President Trump...who had made taking down al-Baghdadi one of his top priorities...he was then able to order military commanders to begin drawing up specific plans for al-Baghdadi's take-down. And while the actual decision to move forward...to begin “Operation Kayla Mueller”...was not officially finalized until Saturday morning after his having received “actionable intelligence” that al-Baghdadi was indeed in the Barisha compound, did members of the Joint Special Operations Command Delta Force Team carry out the high-level and still then secret operation. 

"Something very big has just happened!" was President Trump's tweet after Saturday night's successful completion of “Operation Kayla Mueller” had taken place.



And so the annals of history will now show that America once again stood strong and proud under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump as we were the ones who took out one of the baddest of all bad guys. And while this one chapter regarding ISIS is now closed, the ISIS book in regards to Syria itself still has for us at least two chapters remaining open. One chapter concerns our troops still being stationed in eastern Syria to not only protect the oil fields that are under our control, but to keep the oil out of the hands of a possible and highly likely ISIS tried resurgence...an expected resurgence to avenge al-Baghdadi's death.

And while neither Syrian nor Russian forces have to date challenged our control of those oil fields, it should be noted that another still open chapter sees us keeping a small number of troops at the Tanf garrison near the Syria-Iraq border what with American commandos housed at Tanf still being tasked with training an anti-ISIS force separate from the joint SDF mission.

The death of Baghdadi is an important moment in our fight against terror but the battle against the evil of Daesh [Isis] is not yet over.”
- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on hearing of al-Baghdadi's death.

So while ISIS in Syria might seem to be no longer a threat, all parties involved should still be wary for ISIS has well prepared for such an occasion as their founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's death. Remember, the deadly rattlesnake can bite even after its head has been cut off, and know that ISIS can too even without its titular head.

Jim Jordan Obliterates Dems' Impeachment Inquiry Talking Points: These Four Facts Have Never Changed

Jim Jordan Obliterates Dems' Impeachment Inquiry Talking Points: These Four Facts Have Never ChangedHouse Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Tuesday blasted Democrats for their bogus impeachment inquiry. According to Jordan, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified in front of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform Committees earlier in the day, is not the first person who has provided details to Congress about the call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"There are four fundamental facts that have never changed, never changed: Mr. Vindman is not the first one we've talked to who has been on the call. We've heard from President Trump and President Zelensky. We've got the transcript," Jordan said. "Both President Trump and President Zelensky have said no conditions, no pressure, no pushing, no quid pro quo. We've got the transcript that shows that. We know that the Ukrainians did not know at the time of the call that aid had been withheld and, tell me, what actions the Ukrainians or President Zelensky took to get the aid turned back on."

Op-ed:
Two Losers and the Ghost of John McCain 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

While the current news cycle is all about impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, and Syria, Syria, Syria... there are a few other news worthy items that are both comical and maddening at the same time while receiving but cursory attention at best. So along those lines let's start with the fact that Bernie Sanders...2016 's Mr. “Feel the Bern” himself...has not a snowball's chance in hell of getting the 2020 Democrat nomination let alone winning the presidency...both his heart attack and his far left politics have sealed that fate.

BREAKING: Top Ukraine Expert on National Security Council Plans to Testify About Trump-Zelensky Call

The National Security Council's top Ukraine expert, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman of the Army, who heard President Donald Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, plans to provide details of the call to impeachment investigators on Tuesday, the New York Times reported. Vindman will be the first White House official who listened in on the conversation to testify before investigators.

According to his written statement, he was in the Situation Room with other colleagues from the NSC and the office of the Vice President when the call took place. He said he had concerns about the call and reported them to the NSC's lead counsel once it concluded.

“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Vindman said in his opening statement. “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained.”

We Got Him!


Here's How The CIA Learned About al-Baghdadi's Whereabouts

Here's How The CIA Learned About al-Baghdadi's WhereaboutsPresident Donald Trump on Sunday confirmed the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He died during a secret nighttime mission Saturday night Eastern Standard Time.

According to the New York Times, the CIA learned about al-Baghdadi's location in northwestern Syria after arresting and interrogating one of his wives and a courier earlier this summer. The intelligence agency then worked with Iraqi and Kurdish intelligence officials in Iraq and Syria to narrow down his location. The group did this by placing spies to monitor al-Baghdadi's movements.

Two Losers and the Ghost of John McCain 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

While the current news cycle is all about impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, and Syria, Syria, Syria... there are a few other news worthy items that are both comical and maddening at the same time while receiving but cursory attention at best. So along those lines let's start with the fact that Bernie Sanders...2016 's Mr. “Feel the Bern” himself...has not a snowball's chance in hell of getting the 2020 Democrat nomination let alone winning the presidency...both his heart attack and his far left politics have sealed that fate.

The now shadow of the man he once was...Bernie Sanders remains the man who continues to espouse the supposed virtues of socialism no matter its many proven foibles while still enjoying living large off the millions of dollars capitalism has afforded him, doing so while refusing to follow doctor's orders to slowdown. Instead, Bernie has upped his anti-American vitriol to such a degree while out on the campaign trail, during the Democrat debates, as well as in the media, that it's quite possible Bernie won't be around come nomination time...after all the heart can only take so much...but know I don't wish him harm and neither should you.

The simple fact is that Bernie Sanders cannot win as he's even a bit too far left for some progressives lurking within the now Democrat-Socialist party...progressives who while championing Bernie's “free stuff” mantra along with a growing number of millennials currently in his corner... have started to...albeit to a small degree...come to the realization that nothing in this life is actually free. And when you now add in that the leader of the infamous “Squad”...one Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...has just formally endorsed him...Bernie's Sanders chances of winning anything have gone down from slim to none.

Why so...for starters how about Bernie's adding AOC to his campaign team. Remember, this is the woman who is not well liked even in her own 14th Congressional district as she is the one who almost single-handily killed the Amazon deal...a deal where Amazon was going to open up a new headquarters in New York City...a deal that would have created 25,000 new jobs and added about $30 billion in revenue to not only the very city deep in debt but to New York State itself. Even the infamous Mayor Bill DeBlasio called AOC to task for her job-killing stance. In fact, DeBlasio went so far as to say that, “[I have] progressive roots [and will] take on any progressive – anywhere – that thinks it’s a good idea to lose jobs and revenue.” And AOC then had the gall to say that fixing the subways instead of creating jobs would have been money better spent.
 
And so this delusional ex-bartender...and not a very good one so I've been told...is who Bernie Sanders is welcoming with open arms to his official team of campaign endorsing supporters...not the greatest idea I would think.

But to make matters worse, Bernie Sanders recently stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have an “important position” in his administration “when”...yes he said “when”...he becomes president. Seems like Bernie's heart attack caused a serious momentary lack of oxygen to his brain.

And so the woman whose sole claim to political fame is that she has 5.6 million Twitter followers is also the woman who introduced the cost prohibited, bat-loon crazy Green New Deal to the American public...a deal that would see all buildings in this country being torn down and rebuilt to stringent new EPA standards; would see "planes, trains, and automobiles" becoming but a thing of the past; and would have cows either wearing diapers or with a cork up their butt, And AOC claims it's all in the name of protected the world from what was originally Al Gore's “global cooling” nonsense morphed into “global warming” nonsense now morphed into “climate change” nonsense... as in what's simply the “weather”...and that's not nonsense at all. 

And Bernie seems to have no problem with the cost of AOC's Green New Deal...nonsense he supports no matter that it's implementation cost on the low end would be $52 trillion over the next ten years up to $92 trillion on the high end, also spread out over the next ten years. But when you add in Bernie's Medicare for All proposal...now estimated to cost at least $34 trillion over the same ten years...with that being more than the total current cost of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid combined...you cannot ignore the fact that these two socialists obviously care nothing about adding to our already staggering national debt...a debt currently standing at $22.03 trillion and growing. Nor do they care that the American taxpayer would again be forced to foot the bill...via drastically higher taxes...for both new proposals and more, including a single-payer healthcare system, student loan forgiveness, free public college, a wealth tax on the super-rich, universal childcare, and early childhood education...which would add to the percentage we taxpayers already pay to help bring down the national debt. 
 
And the bottom line here is that all the “free stuff” proposed by Bernie Sanders and seconded by AOC, sees only the “gimme-gimme folks”...folks now generationally with their hands out...not understanding that while these are promises made they're simply promises that cannot be kept, but they're promises that will help Bernie “buy” their votes come the primary elections. 
 
So if Bernie Sanders thinks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement will help him garner the much needed mainstream Democrat vote he is sorrily mistaken for the only ones AOC really appeals to are young clueless millennial sorts who talk a good talk but who are just too lazy to get off their parent's couch and actually go out and vote...as in the newest generation of young people who've been indoctrinated into believing that it's better to receive than to go get a job and be responsible for one's own self.



And while AOC is now being called to task by some leading Democrats for not endorsing a “woman of color” or at least another minority candidate, her support for Bernie Sanders was actually a pre-ordained given as AOC got into politics as an organizer for Bernie's 2016 presidential campaign, as well as it being Bernie's staffers who recruited her to run for Congress. And dare we forget two important commonalities shared between these two, with the first being that both want to literally “overthrow” our capitalistic economy and replace it with socialism...that is until they run out of other people's money...and second, both are card carrying members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the very anti-capitalist group working within yet standing apart from the Democrat party. Translation: both Bernie Sanders and AOC are hypocritical sorts who enjoy reaping the benefits of what the more mainstream Democrat party and our country has to offer while at the same time relishing in destroying the once honorable party of JFK from within.

So while some still believe that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement will at least bring enough “energy” into Bernie's campaign to see him make it to the primaries, the fact remains that AOC may do little to nothing to bring much needed minority votes...especially black votes...over to Bernie. And besides, Bernie Sanders campaign is already faltering what with major polls now showing “Pocahontas” Warren kicking him out of second place and even overtaking “Uncle Joe” in a few of those polls. Bye-bye Bernie, it's time to accept your moniker as “socialism's grandfather” and just fade away for you will never be president nor will America ever become a socialist nation...President Trump will surely see to that.

And then there's Utah's now junior Senator Mitt Romney, the man I supported for president back in 2012 who has now sadly morphed into the ghost of John McCain. So filled with hate for President Trump this once honorable man has made taking down Trump his 24/7 agenda, basically picking up where McCain left off. But don't think that doesn't come with consequences because it does.

But before I get into those consequences let's take a brief look at the latest in the ongoing Romney/Trump feud...a feud that started on the day Mitt Romney lost to Obama and Donald Trump...whose support he had garnered... publicly stated that Romney was not strong or assertive enough during the campaign...which was one hundred percent correct. Making amends of sorts when now President Trump considered Romney for his Secretary of State, things got even more unsettling when Rex Tillerson was chosen instead.

And so the tensions kept building and reached a culmination of sorts when on January 1, 2019, newly elected Utah Senator Mitt Romney arrived in Washington D.C. with a vehemently anti-Trump op-ed in hand. Printed in The Washington Post and titled, The President Shapes the Public Character of the Nation. Trump’s Character Falls Short, this op-ed was nothing but a hit piece against the man who won the office Romney coveted but could never attain with its bottom line for Romney being that Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” But what makes this even more grievous is that Mitt Romney sought and accepting President Trump's endorsement during his Senate campaign.

And from this point on now Senator Mitt Romney has continued to channel his inner John McCain by painting himself as a true conservative...as McCain tried to do and failed...with Trump being the founder of what Romney calls “Trumpism.” But the fact is that half the nation voted for Trump because of his conservative values, especially on key moral issues, as well as for his known business savvy. Translation: All of Mitt Romney's venom spewed has allowed him to pick-up where John McCain left off, thus affording him the designation of RINO as well, and that comes replete with a healthy dose of Jeff Flake's animosity thrown in for good, or should I say bad measure.

Now fast forward to this past October 5th when Mitt Romney called President Trump's supposed appeals to Ukraine and China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter "wrong and appalling." The only thing “wrong and appalling” was Romney drawing this conclusion before the phone transcript of the call had even been released...before Ukraine President Zelensky himself said nothing improper had taken place...as in no appeal was made. And President Trump's response came via a tweet in which he called Romney “a pompous ass who has been fighting me from the beginning" adding that Romney could have won the 2012 election if he "worked this hard on Obama."

How right President Trump is as shades of Hillary Clinton sees Mitt Romney also blaming everybody but himself for his loss as well as his seeking revenge for something solely of his own doing.



And dare we forget Mitt Romney's recently taking to the Senate floor after President Trump announced our troop withdrawal from northern Syria to call Trump's supposed abandonment of the Kurds “a bloodstain in the annals of American history.” Nothing like Romney's spouting off without knowing all the facts to add to an already overheated political impeachment fire. 
 
And yet no matter how Trump counters Mitt Romney's accusations, Romney's now over inflated ego and quest for revenge unfortunately sees him remaining steadfast in his threats to see President Trump removed from office. And this can be witnessed by his recent interviews with Axios where he alluded to musings that he might head up what he now calls a “breakaway group of Republican senators” in turning against Trump if he does happen to get impeached in the House. But Mitt Romney can bloviate all he wants as he needs a minimum of twenty Republican senators to pull that off and those numbers are thankfully just not there.

Now as for the consequences of his actions, Mitt Romney has both personal and political egg on his face for it was recently discovered that Romney has a secret Twitter account where he uses the moniker “Pierre Delecto,” and has had said account for eight years, ever since his presidential run against Obama. But even though he only used said account 10 times since 2011...used it to either offer “mild criticism” of President Trump while tweeting “polite defenses” of himself...what's troubling about this is that now Senator Mitt Romney...a man so vocal against President Trump in Congress and while playing to the cameras...did not have the courage to stand by his online convictions needing instead a phony virtual identity by which to do his dirty work. Makes one wonder about the true character of the man who dares to question President Trump's moral fortitude.

And then there's this political consequence few politicians want to see, as in falling poll numbers. In fact, as I write this, Mitt Romney actually has a lower approval rating than a disapproval rating, and it's all because of his very public sour grapes feud with President Trump. The man who in 2018 was elected as Utah's next senator with 62% of the vote now sees himself, as per a Utah Policy and Y2 Analytics survey, with only 46% of Utahans approving of his time on the Hill with 51% disapproving, and with those numbers more than likely continuing to fall.

Not good for the man who not that long ago aspired to our nation's highest office, but like they say “you reap what you sow.” And for Mitt Romney, just like with Hillary Clinton, and like it should have been for John McCain, it would have better served them to let their animosity against President Trump go.

News stories buried by the media now come to light as there's more going on than impeachment and Syria...just wanted you to know.
