'Should've listened to me': Trump says Brexit debacle could’ve been avoided if May heeded his advice

US President and dealmaker Donald Trump disparaged UK PM Theresa May's negotiating skills, saying that Britain could have been spared the hot mess that is the Brexit process, if only she had listened to him.

May might have breathed a sigh of relief on Thursday when British MPs voted in favor of the government motion to ask the EU to extend Article 50 and delay Brexit until June 30, after two days of heavy defeats in Parliament. However, that does not mean her woes are over, as no consensus has been reached over the Brexit deal, with MPs refusing to ratify what May had negotiated with the EU, and the EU ruling out revising the deal, which in its latest form includes binding assurances on the so-called Irish 'backstop'.

US Report Intends to Whitewash Israel's Human Rights Violations

A high-ranking member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) said a US decision to drop Israeli-occupied designation from the Golan Heights and Palestinian territories in its latest annual human rights report is meant to whitewash the Israeli occupation and human rights violations against the Palestinian nation.

“After the release of the so-called human rights report by the US State Department, it is now abundantly clear that [US President Donald] Trump’s administration is gearing all branches of the government to whitewash the Israeli occupation and its pervasive violations of human rights”>>>

49 killed in 'terrorist' attack on mosques in New Zealand

At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country's worst ever mass shooting, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism.

A gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a "manifesto" in which he denounced immigrants, calling them "invaders".

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Ardern said, adding that four people taken into custody held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack">>>

Here’s how AIPAC "could" lose its bipartisan status

The American Israeli Public Action Committee, widely known as AIPAC, has managed to remain bipartisan for nearly 70 years. Its membership is divided roughly equally between Democrats and Republicans. Leaders from across the American political spectrum – everyone from Vice President Mike Pence to Sen. Kamala Harris – have spoken at the influential lobbying group’s conferences.

But as a political scientist who teaches and writes about U.S. foreign policy and Middle East politics, I have been observing changing political landscapes within the United States and Israel. Growing competition between AIPAC and J Street, a relatively new pro-Israeli lobbying group, along with changes in how American Jews regard increasingly hardline and conservative Israeli policies, reflect a growing partisan split. I believe that ultimately these changes could make AIPAC’s agenda more attractive to Republicans than to Democrats, with potentially significant consequences for American-Israeli relations.

Lara Trump: President's daughter-in-law warns 2020 rivals to wait until 2024

Lara Trump — who's husband is Eric Trump — told Sky News in an interview that she is not worried anyone would beat her father-in-law, and that she does not understand why anyone would try.

“Honestly, I am not worried about anybody that has gotten into the race, and I do believe that Donald Trump is going to win by more in 2020 than he did in 2016,” she said. “I think the reality is it will be so stupid for people to spend their money, to waste their money and time and effort right now, to try and run against him.”

RussiaGate As Organised Distraction

For over two years RussiaGate has accounted for a substantial proportion of all mainstream US media political journalism and, because US media have significant agenda-setting propulsion, of global media coverage as well. The timing has been catastrophic.

The Trump Administration has shredded environmental protections, jettisoned nuclear agreements, exacerbated tensions with US rivals, and pandered to the rich.

In place of sustained media attention to the end of the human species from global warming, its even more imminent demise in nuclear warfare, or the further evisceration of democratic discourse in a society riven by historically unprecedented wealth inequalities and unbridled capitalistic greed, corporate media suffocate their publics with a puerile narrative of alleged collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.

COULTER: TRUMP BY THE NUMBERS (IT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD)

It is now clear that Trump isn’t waiting for a better moment. This was not an anomaly. It’s not an accident.

After he signed his third spending bill with no wall funding, which he claims to need, all sentient beings were forced to conclude that the president has no intention of ever doing anything we wanted on immigration.

In fact, Trump is steadily moving in the precise opposite direction of what he promised.

Illegal immigration is on track to hit the highest levels in more than a decade, and Trump has willfully decided to keep amnesty advocates Jared, Ivanka, Mick Mulvaney, Marc Short and Mercedes Schlapp in the White House. For all his talk about immigration, did he ever consider hiring people who share his MAGA vision?

Trump says he has signed an order to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he signed an order to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes involved in two recent catastrophic crashes.

"Those planes are grounded effective immediately," Trump told reporters at the White House. "The safety of the American people, of all people, is our paramount concern."

The U.S. was the only nation still flying the Boeing 737 planes after Canada announced Wednesday that it was grounding the aircraft. The plane was involved in an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed 157 people.

The Federal Aviation Administration previously stood by the safety of the Boeing 737, saying it hadn't found any issues at fault with the jetliner that would merit a grounding order.

Lack of Options Forces US to Take ‘Nuclear' Path Against Germany Over Huawei

The Trump administration's threats to withhold intelligence from Germany are rooted in the fact that Washington has no other means to bend Berlin to its will, Jude Woodward, author of "The US vs China: Asia's New Cold War?" tells Sputnik.

"The problem is that the US hasn't got any other threats left," Woodward told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear on Tuesday. "In the past, the trading relationship and the strength of the US economy and the size of the US market meant that the US had huge clout and it didn't really have to make threats."

"If [the US] made it clear it wanted something, its key allies would just go with it. Now the problem is that… the US is forced to go to the nuclear option because it doesn't have any options in between anymore," she added.

Dollar Hegemony, Again

The United States Entity lost the war in Iraq. That fact determines the Entity’s position in the Middle East today. After having destroyed Saddam’s army and dispossessing the Sunnis in favor of the Shi’ites, after Abu Ghraib and it’s indelible pictures, after the total destruction of Fallujah, in short after a victory achieved with the utmost brutality, contempt and humiliation of Iraq and Iraqis, the Entity was in charge. Then the “insurgents” appeared. They put improvised explosive devices along the roads so, with a phone call, they could destroy patrols of the Entity. They made car bombs so that every vehicle approaching a check-point might spell doom. They donned suicide vests to blow themselves and any nearby Entity soldiers up. Entity soldiers couldn’t go into the streets. Every move they made could be their last. The enemy was everywhere and nowhere. These people would rather die then be ruled by these idiotic mechanized barbarians.

Donald Trump Thanks Nancy Pelosi for Ruling Out Impeachment

President Donald Trump responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) assertion that Democrats would not try to impeach him in the House of Representatives.

“I greatly appreciate Nancy Pelosi’s statement against impeachment, but everyone must remember the minor fact that I never did anything wrong,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Economy and Unemployment are the best ever, Military and Vets are great – and many other successes!”

Since Democrats won a majority in the House of Representatives, the activist left has demanded Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.

Weld said, “All his instincts are against the interest of the United States. It’s amazing that he is president of the United States.”

When asked who he thinks Trump is in history, Weld said, “Maybe Nero, maybe Caligula, a Roman emperor who is totally autocratic. He admires the autocrats in history. That makes me nervous as an American. ”

Exclusive — President Trump Mocks ‘Amazing Breed’ of Never Trumpers, Slams ‘Almost Deranged’ ‘Poor Bastard’ George Will

President Donald Trump mocked Never Trumpers in an exclusive, more-than-40-minute interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon, calling them a nearly dead, “amazing breed” of political figures. Trump added, however, the ones who are left are still “slightly dangerous.”

“The Never Trumpers, that’s an amazing breed. First of all, they’re on mouth-to-mouth resuscitation now,” Trump said in response to a question from Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow on his thoughts on Never Trumpers. “There aren’t many of them left. But they’re still slightly dangerous.”

Trump’s comments on Never Trumpers in the Breitbart News exclusive interview went further than a line he first rolled out in his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU) a little over a week ago, where the president spoke for a record two-plus hours.

Ann Coulter Slams "Lying Media" In New Assault On "Shallow, Narcissistic Conman" Trump

Hell hath no fury like a woman who was promised a wall...

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter renewed her attacks on President Trump during a Monday night speech at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Florida - where she railed against his lack of progress on a long-promised wall at the southern border, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Bemoaning how she has nobody to share her disappointment with, Coulter said: "It’s frustrating... I can’t talk to Trump detractors because, as the subtitle to my last book indicated, they’re insane. I can’t talk to the Trump flatterers because they think as soon as it comes out of his mouth, it has happened. No, he’s an excellent talker. It’s just when it comes to doing anything that he falls down on the job."

Trump Doctrine? Peeving allies & trashing US empire

As with all US presidents, the incumbent will one day be assigned a “Trump Doctrine” – a grandiose title meant to encapsulate a key feature of foreign policy during his tenure at the White House.

The foreign policy wonks haven’t yet come up with a defining policy feature for a Trump Doctrine. But we may suggest the following: scoring own goals to unwittingly alienate allies and undermine US global power.

Trump’s presidency stands out for the rapidity with which supposed allies have become leery of, if not outright peeved by, American power. That, in turn, has served to erode Washington’s global standing as a presumed leader.

The latest own goal is Trump’s plan to ramp up demands for allies to pay the cost of hosting US troops on their territories. The new accounting arrangement has not yet been officially announced by the White House, but allies have got wind of the changes in store.

US Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson to resign

US Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson, one of the first officials to join the Trump administration in the Pentagon, says she will resign in May and return to academia.

Wilson was considered a top candidate to become the next secretary of defense and now her resignation will leave another vacant post at the top level of the Pentagon.

Wilson submitted a resignation letter and released a statement Friday morning, saying she has informed President Donald Trump of the matter.

"Today I informed the President I will resign as Secretary of the Air Force to be President of the University of Texas at El Paso. It has been a privilege to serve with our #Airmen—I am proud of the progress we have made to restore the readiness & lethality of #USAF."

Paul Ryan Offers Advice on How Democrats Can Beat Trump in 2020

Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan offered some advice to Democrats seeking to unseat the President in 2020 – make the race about Trump’s personality.

It seems odd to advise the opposition party to attack the one thing Trump’s supporters overwhelming like about him. In fact, in a poll last year, well over half of the respondents viewed the President as intelligent, strong, and decisive.

And in spite of media coverage to the contrary, his base enjoys the occasional verbal sparring he is willing to engage in with political opponents. He fights!

Yet, Ryan believes a referendum on Trump’s personality will carry the Democrat nominee all the way to the White House.

“The person who defines that race is going to win the race,” Ryan told the audience at a lecture in Vero Beach, Florida. “If this is about Donald Trump and his personality, he isn’t going to win it.”

Pelosi waves off impeachment, says it would divide country

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is setting a high bar for impeachment of President Donald Trump, saying he is “just not worth it” even as some on her left flank clamor to start proceedings.

Pelosi said in an interview with The Washington Post that “I’m not for impeachment” of Trump.

“Unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,” she said.

While she has made similar comments before, Pelosi is making clear to her caucus and to voters that Democrats will not move forward quickly with trying to remove Trump from office. And it’s a departure from her previous comments that Democrats are waiting on special counsel Robert Mueller to lay out findings from his Russia investigation before considering impeachment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, an attempt at impeachment could trigger massive civil unrest, but I think the real reason Pelosi is backing off impeachment if that they have nothing to impeach Trump for, and in any event, the Senate would not remove Trump, making the impeachment effort appear to be a failure of the Democrats.

Trump cuts foreign aid spending, boosts border security, funds countering Russia in 2020 budget plan

President Donald Trump has announced his 2020 budget request. The $4.7 trillion funding plan cuts foreign aid and DC spending, and gives a boost to the military and border security, as well as to countering Russia’s “influence."
Announced on Monday, the 2020 budget promises to drive down the US’ staggering $22 trillion debt by cutting “wasteful Washington spending,” while demanding more resources for defense and national security.

The document outlines $2.7 trillion in spending cuts aimed at slashing nondefense spending by five percent. The State Department will see its spending cut by 23 percent, the Environmental Protection Agency will suffer a 31 percent chop, and food stamps will be cut by $17 billion and other welfare programs by $22 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'll bet foreign aid to Israel did not get cut.

“In a thinly veiled rebuke of the initiative, which aims to unite European and Asian markets, a spokesman for the White House’s group of national security advisers said on Saturday that Italy’s participation in the BRI would add ‘legitimacy’ to Beijing’s infrastructure project. Italy is a major global economy and great investment destination. No need for Italian government to lend legitimacy to China’s infrastructure vanity project,” spokesman Garrett Marquis said on Twitter.

Everywhere they look, Donald Trump’s supporters feel like they’re under attack.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant; Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of another. Right-wing media outlets are filled with stories of liberals pulling off “Make America Great Again” hats.

Trump supporters have even come up with a term for this phenomenon that has them feeling under siege: “MAGAphobia.”

Trump is trying to pay his way to an annihilation of Palestinian statehood, and an erasure of Israel’s crimes

“Palestine” has been compared to many things. The world’s longest colonial war, a “hell-disaster” – Churchill’s memorable epithet – and the site of Israel’s “war on terror”, a conflict in which we are supposed to believe that the Palestinians are playing the role of al-Qaeda or Isis or any other outfit which the west and its allies have helped into existence, and which Israel is going to fight on our behalf.

But there are times when Palestine turns out to have been located in the Bermuda Triangle. The Palestinians disappear. They cease to exist. They are forgotten, irrelevant, outside the landscape of fear, pain, injustice and occupation that we once heard about so often. No one can imagine what has happened to these Palestinians. Like the aircraft and boats which strayed into the mythical triangle, they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Sad to see them go. But it’s a mystery.

Democratic Leaders Denounce White House’s ‘Budget for a Better America’

The White House argued its annual budget proposal, unveiled on Monday, will help balance federal spending — while Democratic leaders predictably denounced it.

President Donald Trump’s budget included various spending items for the next fiscal year at a total of $4.7 trillion. Those in support of the proposal see the spending cuts and reforms as a pathway to balancing the federal budget.

In addition, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would be provided $5.4 billion to help it fight illegal immigration. The budget also calls for $8.6 billion in new funding for the construction of a border wall.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other critics, however, warn that the recommended cuts would undermine critical programs on which many Americans rely.

Omar Denies Comparing President to Obama, Says Trump ‘Really Not’ Human

Rep. Ilhan Omar walked back her criticisms of Barack Obama, saying President Trump, by comparison, is “really not” human.

A recent interview with Politico revealed Omar had some choice words for Obama, shredding his border apprehension policies, denouncing his droning of other countries, and noting that he was little more than a “pretty face” allowed to “get away with murder.”

The Minnesota congresswoman made a direct line comparison between the current President and the one who came before him.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” she said, speaking clearly of Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am developing a love/hate relationship with Ilhan Omar. I love half of everything she says, and hate the rest.

Trump continued by explaining that many Democrats are campaigning on socialism, however, because it is “easy” to campaign on but difficult “to govern on.”

Tribe was responding to Newsweek columnist, Seth Abramson, who had called President Donald Trump's son-in-law 'the greatest domestic danger to America'.

'I’m with @sethabramson here. Smarmy, slimy, smiling Jared Kushner of 666 Fifth Avenue is the beating heart of this unprecedentedly corrupt and deeply evil administration,' Tribe tweeted.

'He’ll eventually be exposed as an insatiably greedy Benedict Arnold,' he added, implying that Kushner would betray the United States.

Misled on the Wall, Trump Must Hold Firm Against the Wars

President Donald Trump’s first veto will now likely be of the resolution seeking to block his use of emergency powers to build a border wall. Whatever the merits, that’s better politics—and more “America First”—than vetoing Congress’s attempt to stop U.S. support for the Yemen war.

Trump promised during the 2016 campaign to guard America’s borders rather than police the world. The reason he finds himself in the position of fighting for a national emergency declaration is that he listened to lawmakers, including some influential members of his own party, whose priorities ran in the opposite direction.

Late last year when Trump began his ill-fated wall showdown and called for winding down two wars—one that had gone on too long, the other that was never authorized by Congress or our business to fight in the first place—it appeared he had belatedly learned this lesson.

Trump Budget Would Slash Domestic Spending, Boost Military Spending

On Monday, President Trump will officially propose his new budget plan, which calls for major cuts in domestic spending across the board, but which also seeks a large further increase in military spending, above and beyond the increases already planned.

Exact figures aren’t clear at this point, but what is clear is that the general direction of this budget is going to face major opposition within the House of Representatives, not just from the Democratic leadership, but from some Republicans as well.

It’s not just the heavily military-centric priorities that will fuel the opposition, though clearly that is part of it. The budget proposal also ditches the Republicans’ goal of a 10-year time-frame for a balanced budget.

John Bolton Is the Real Foreign Policy President of the US. He’s Playing Trump Like a Fiddle

Curt Mills reports on Bolton’s extensive and expanding influence in the Trump administration:

But in the meantime, in return for his occasional, minor humilation, Bolton enjoys wide-ranging authority to craft the national security policy of the United States, behind the scenes. He’s the contra Mattis; instead of resigning in moral protest, Bolton wears the mask of obsequiousness, while subtly nudging a reluctant president toward a more tough-minded line.

We have seen how Bolton has been able to delay and even partially undo one of the president’s initial decisions in Syria (all the while emphasizing that the president’s decision was being faithfully carried out), and his fingerprints are all over the demise of the INF Treaty. Now we are starting to see the same thing happen with North Korea policy.

Trump & The Gordian Knot, Year Two

About a year ago I advanced the theory that US President Trump understood that the only way to "Make American Great Again" was to disentangle it from the imperial mission that had it stuck in perpetual wars. I concluded that his statements implied that he believed that

1) the post 9/11 military interventions did nothing for American security;

2) foreign interventions impoverish the country;

3) the alliance system is neither useful nor a good deal for the country;

4) Russia is not the once and future enemy.

Why Is Corbyn So Important?

For the same reasons that President Trump has been a significant political development.

These two post-political characters bring to the surface what has been suppressed for decades: we are subject to foreign occupation. We the people, are reduced to mere consumers and our so-called ‘elected politicians’ are a bunch of detached, compromised actors.

Beijing Demands Its Own Enforcement Of Any Trade Deal

Now that President Trump's insistence that he and President Xi would need to meet to finalize a sweeping US-China trade deal has been exposed as empty talk - since Beijing absolutely refuses to send Xi all the way to Florida only to risk him returning empty handed - traders are finally being forced to accept the harsh reality: That a US-China trade deal is far from assured.

Underestimating the People

FLORES – Will Trump Veto? U.S Congress Drafts Bill Banning Recognition Of Russia’s Crimea

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives of the United States has, after a long time in committee, approved a bill banning the US government from recognizing Crimea as a Russian region.

The decision was made unanimously on March 7th, according to the website of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The text of the “Law on the non-recognition of the annexation of Crimea” was submitted to Congress on January 16th and was only now sent to the House of Representatives for consideration. If the bill is supported by both houses of Congress, it will be sent to president Trump for final ratification or veto.

At this point in time, it appears likely that the bill will pass both houses, given the political climate. The question remains as to whether Trump will veto the bill or not. Also at his disposal is the line-item veto – parts of the bill can be struck out by Trump, and then ratified.

Trump: Markets Will See "A Very Big Spike" If Trade Deal Gets Done

As markets sink further into the red during what will likely become their worst week of the year, more skeptical reports about the likelihood of a deal have emerged.

On the heels of a report that a tentative summit with President Xi had been pushed back, the Financial Times returned with comments from a senior administration official, who reiterated that the President would "walk away" from a bad deal. In comments during a conference on Friday, Williams acknowledged that negotiations "aren't exactly where we need to be."

A senior White House official said president Donald Trump was prepared to “walk away” from a “bad” trade deal with China, stressing that there is “work left to be done” in the negotiations before an agreement can be finalised.

Gabbard's Pro-INF Bill Has 'No Chance' Due to Military-Industrial Complex Lobby

In a last-ditch effort to keep the US from exiting the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), Democratic Party presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard introduced a draft bill to Congress which would prevent the authorization of government funds for the testing, procurement or deployment of any missile prohibited under the treaty.

Congress released the full text of Gabbard's bill, dubbed the INF Treaty Compliance Act of 2019, this week, with the proposed legislation originally introduced by the Hawaii congresswoman in mid-February for deliberation by the House Armed Services Committee.

Gabbard had earlier described Trump's decision to pull out of the 1987 treaty as a "reckless" move which could exacerbate "a new Cold War" with Russia. The bill has now been cosponsored by six Democratic lawmakers, including Ilhan Omar, James McGovern, Mark Pocan, Barbara Lee, Raul M. Grijalva, Eleanor Holmes Norton and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Trump Criticizes Democrats For Passing Resolution Condemning Hate

President Donald Trump described the Democratic Party as an “anti-Israel party" and an "anti-Jewish party" on Friday and said a House vote condemning hate but not specifically denouncing the remarks of one of its members was “disgraceful.”

VENEZUELA’S MINISTER SAYS MAJOR POWER OUTAGE LIKELY CAUSED BY ‘CYBERATTACK’, POINTS FINGER AT US

A cyber-attack is likely the reason for the major blackout that left most of Venezuela in darkness, a Maduro government official said, hinting that the US may be involved in the offensive.

As Venezuela is still reeling from a nationwide blackout, Nicolas Maduro’s government says the emergency was the result of an external influence. The major power outage was likely prompted by a cyber-attack against the Guri hydroelectric plant which produces 80% of the country’s electricity, Jorge Rodriguez, Venezuela’s communication and information minister said on Friday, according to local media.

The official went on to hint that US Senator and fierce anti-Maduro campaigner Marco Rubio may be linked to the offensive. Rodriguez found it suspicious that shortly after the failure Rubio shared specific information on Twitter about the emergency that even local authorities were not aware of at that time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was this coordinated by someone in the US, most probably?!?

As someone who has lived with an American government which invests most of its its time in regime change, economic and physical warfare, and outright resource theft, I would not put it past the US to have contracted to have this done.

Pence Asked Merkel to Provoke Russia by Sending Warships to Crimea

The U.S. leaned on German Chancellor Angela Merkel last month to conduct a naval maneuver in Russia’s backyard aimed at provoking President Vladimir Putin, according to three people familiar with the talks.

At a Feb. 16 meeting at the Munich Security Conference, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged Merkel to send German warships through a narrow channel between the Crimean peninsula and mainland Russia to show Putin that Western powers won’t surrender their access to those waters, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Nadler leading Cold War-style 'inquisition' against Trump, House Judiciary panel's ranking Republican says

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee unloaded on the panel's chairman, Jerry Nadler, in a fiery letter on Thursday, accusing the New York Democrat of conducting an unconstitutional "inquisition" into President Trump and his associates "reminiscent of Eastern regimes during the Cold War."

Nadler, who would oversee any impeachment proceedings against President Trump, this week announced dozens of document requests -- including to the National Rifle Association (NRA), WikiLeaks and key figures in the Trump Organization -- in a barrage that Nadler called the opening salvo in new and wide-ranging investigations into the White House.

Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member on the committee, charged that Nadler's investigation runs "afoul of nearly 150 years of Supreme Court precedent and over 200 years of oversight conducted by this committee."

Trump inauguration took money from shell companies tied to foreigners

Donald Trump’s inauguration received tens of thousands of dollars from shell companies that masked the involvement of a foreign contributor or others with foreign ties.

The Guardian has identified the creators of three obscure firms that contributed money to Trump’s inaugural committee, which collected a record $107m as he entered the White House in 2017.

The three companies each gave $25,000 to Trump’s inaugural fund. At least one of the contributions was made for a foreign national who appears ineligible to make political donations in the US.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice Effect

***

Thus, what was supposed to be a morale-boosting quickie regime-change operation to cheer up the rank and file on the road to Tehran – the overthrow of Nicolas Maduro’s sanctions-starved socialist state in Venezuela, the oil-rich fly in the ointment of “our own backyard” – has become just another entry on a long list of ignominious failures. Even the truest of true believers can no longer pretend that the US is in the business of spreading democracy – not when all the evidence and information available points the other way. The only remedy left for the “sole superpower” is to cut off the flow of information entirely and build an informational Iron Dome, an epistemological missile shield capable of withstanding all truth.

Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?

Lazy propaganda is largely to blame for the lapse in narrative superiority.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that he has 8 times rejected his US counterpart Donald Trump's demand for talks during the 2017 trip to New York to participate in the UN General Assembly conference, stressing the need for Washington to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal.

"Today, we do not have any way but resistance. During the 2017 visit to New York, the US administration demanded 8 times for meeting with the US president and in the year 2018, 5 world leaders mediated for this meeting. I told them that conditions and time are not appropriate. The US should first return to the nuclear deal and admit their mistake," President Rouhani said, addressing the officials of Gilan province's administrative council on Thursday.

Guantanamo sees new construction a decade after prison ordered shut

A worn, yellow Bobcat excavator barrels over the defunct, 1940s-era McCalla Airfield, now the home of a maximum-security courthouse at Guantanamo Bay's Camp Justice.

The machine is bringing in materials needed for the expansion of offices and a new holding cell adjacent to the courthouse. The medically equipped cell will allow prisoners to live at the Camp Justice section of Guantanamo during court proceedings for the first time.

It has been 10 years since former US President Barack Obama issued an executive order to close the prison facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

However, not only has US President Donald Trump been determined to keep the camp open, his administration is now expanding it.

“US And Its Vassals Should Stop Serving Us Fairy Tales.” — Lafontaine"It is not Putin forbade the Germans to trade with other nations, but Trump."

Oskar Lafontaine, leader of the Left in the Saarland Parliament and former SPD chairman, has vehemently defended the controversial gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 and the purchase of Russian natural gas by Germany in a Facebook post.

Lafontaine cites US security adviser and Stratfor founder George Friedman as saying: It is a trivial realization that the United States would have a problem if German technology and Russian commodities came together. (…) The main goal of [the US is] for over a century is to prevent a German-Russian alliance. Of course, the US wants to drive a wedge between Germany and Russia.Therefore, US President Donald Trump now wants to prevent the purchase of environmentally friendly gas and instead sell Germany his “polluting fracking gas.”

Therefore, there is a “lying campaign” of Das Bild and other “quality media” and relevant well-known “Atlanticists” among the CDU and the Greens.

David Stockman: The Undrainable Swamp & The Inevitable Recession

Love it or hate it, the potency of the Trump Administration is on the wane, soon to be stuck in the mire of the Swamp it has deepened instead of drained, while the economy falls into one hell of a recession -- so claims former Regan-era Cabinet member and Congressman David Stockman.

In his new book Peak Trump, Stockman notes how the wide divergence between Trump the campaigner and Trump the president appears to be proving to be his undoing.

Rather than fight to dismantle the institutions he railed against as a candidate -- most notably the Deep State and the Federal Reserve -- Trump has embraced them.

Now, when this latest asset bubble bursts (and Stockman believes the markets saw their peak back in Fall 2018), Trump will 'own' that. Having chosen to tie his administration's success to the rising price of the S&P 500 since taking office, he won't be able to foist the blame of a market crash on his predecessors.

Trump Looks To Nationalize 5G

Trump apparently wants to control 5G in a ‘state-run’ socialist twist to American capitalism - and now there are indications that it could become part of the 2020 election campaign.

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign team renewed its controversial pitch on nationalizing the country’s 5G network. In other words, the government would have control of 5G airwaves and lease access to private wireless providers.

Kayleigh McEnany, a Trump 2020 campaign spokeswoman, told Politico that a wholesale 5G market would drive down costs and provide access to millions of Americans who are currently underserved.

“This is in line with President Trump’s agenda to benefit all Americans, regardless of geography," McEnany said. Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, has been also pushing for a plan that would involve a nationwide 5G network.
