Trump 'Has A Lot Of Explaining To Do' After Cohen Plea

Michael Avenatti's reaction to Michael Cohen's plea deal was as expected: proud that he predicted it and declaring it a win for his client, Stormy Daniels. He states, unequivocally, that Count 8 of the plea deal address the payment to Stormy Daniels.

Avenatti said: "The likelihood of me getting a deposition with the President of the United States of America just went through the roof, no question about it. And our case is not going to be stayed and we are going to press forward."

He was then asked if he thinks the President has been implicated and he responded "well I think he has, based on this plea agreement, based on Michael Cohen's statement...he has a lot of explaining to do. He is in a lot of trouble."

Social media’s self-regulation is “very dangerous” for society, warns President Trump

President Trump gave an ominous warning about the path Big Tech has decided to take, cautioning that banning people for their points of view is a “dangerous” thing.

US Occupying Iraq Forever Is Last Thing World Needs Now

Going against international law and what the international civil society wants, which is troop withdrawal, Col Sean Ryan, a spokesman for the US-led coalition in Iraq, says that US troops are intending to remain in Iraq “as long as we think they’re needed.” He says this is vital to the stabilization efforts in post-ISIL Iraq.

This is in keeping with other comments out of the Pentagon, where officials more or less uniformly envision a permanent US military occupation of Iraq, and have not been shy in saying so. And don’t believe it when President Trump says he’s keen to withdraw troops once ISIL is defeated.

Also, don’t believe it when Col. Ryan says it is possible there could be some minor drawdowns of US troops from Iraq in the future>>>

Afghanistan: The War That Shames America

***
This week, Taliban forces occupied the important strategic city of Ghazni on the road from Peshawar to Kabul. It took three days and massive air attacks by US B-1 heavy bombers, Apache helicopter gun ships, A-10 ground attack aircraft, and massed warplanes from US bases in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Qatar and the 5th US Fleet to finally drive back the Taliban assault. Taliban also overran key military targets in Kabul and the countryside, killing hundreds of government troops in a sort of Afghan Tet offensive.

Afghan regime police and army units put up feeble resistance or ran away. Parts of Ghazni were left in ruins. It was a huge embarrassment to the US imperial generals and their Afghan satraps who had claimed ‘the corner in Afghanistan has finally been turned.’

Efforts by the Trump administration to bomb Taliban into submission have clearly failed.>>>

Trump says ‘not considering’ lifting sanctions unless Russia does ‘something good’ for US

***
Trump, who has repeatedly stressed “nobody’s been tougher on Russia than I have,” has introduced a number of sanctions against Moscow, in a continuation of punitive policies that began under his predecessor, Barack Obama in 2014, following the US-backed regime change in Kiev.

First sanctions were imposed on March 6, 2014, ten days before the Crimea referendum, for actions that then-US President Barack Obama said “undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine.” Even though the region’s population overwhelmingly voted to separate from Ukraine and join Russia in March 2014, official US position is that Crimea is part of Ukraine, and that for sanctions to be lifted the peninsula has to be “returned” to Kiev. The US and its allies imposed additional sanctions against Russian officials, companies and individuals, blaming “Russian aggression” for Ukraine’s ongoing internal conflict.

Most recent round of sanctions was announced over unproven allegations that Russia had used a nerve agent against former double agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president’s most intimate moments with his lawyer.

Hayden made the comment on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked about a recent op-ed from retired Adm. William McRaven, who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden. In his piece, McRaven issued a stunning rebuke of Trump's decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, whom the former naval officer called "a man of unparalleled integrity." He added that he "would consider it an honor" if Trump also took away his clearance "so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency."
Asked by CNN's Jake Tapper if he too would be honored to lose his security clearance, Hayden said, "Well, to be included in that group? Sure."

Media Misses Key Detail On Recent Trump GMO/Pesticide Ban ‘Lifting’, Here’s Why

In early August, Trump’s administration released a new memo from the Fish and Wildlife Service stating that the 2014 version of the memo, out of Obama’s administration would be cancelled and the terms of the new memo would now be in place.

The memo was in reference to a GMO and neonicotinoid bans that put in place to help protect the bee population and wildlife refuges. The 2014 memo was a positive step forward as it was publicly stating, even at higher governmental levels, that GMOs were harmful to agriculture and wildlife, as were neonics. This initial memo was coined a GMO and neonics ban, even though the language in the memo doesn’t actually say that.

Before we continue, we recognize and have painstakingly covered, the dangers of neonicotinoid pesticides and GMOs on our environment and wildlife. We have called for an all-out ban, based on our research, numerous times over the last 6 years and still hold completely strong to that truth.

Intense pressure from Washington is overshadowing the project, construction of which is already in advanced stages, as the WSJ cites current and former US officials who say sanctions are under discussion and could be mobilized in a mere matter of weeks.

Houthis: New child killing in Yemen ‘disgrace to Saudi, US’

Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement says a recent deadly strike by the Saudi-led coalition on the northwestern Sa’ada Province, which massacred dozens of children, is a disgrace to the Riyadh regime and the US, the main arms supplier to the kingdom.

In an interview on Wednesday with Yemen’s al-Masirah, Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam criticized the United Nations for its inaction on the Saudi regime’s new instance of child killing.

Yemen, he said, does not pin its hopes on the world body for any effort towards ending the Saudi-led war, but rather relies on its own nation and other freedom-seeking people to that end.

There are US troops there, as well as several ISIL units, which are wandering in the desert," Governor-General of Homs province Talal Barazi said on Thursday.

He added that Syrians would feel secure only once the ISIL is eliminated, and the US servicemen leave al-Tanf.

Trump’s lawyers prepare to fight subpoena all the way to the Supreme Court

Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s lead lawyer for the ongoing Russia probe, said Wednesday that he is still awaiting a response from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to the Trump team’s latest terms for a presidential interview, which were made last week in a letter that argued against Trump’s having to answer questions about his possible obstruction of justice.

In the meantime, Trump’s lawyers are preparing to oppose a potential subpoena from Mueller for a Trump sit-down by drafting a rebuttal that could set off a dramatic fight in federal courts.

“We would move to quash the subpoena,” Giuliani said in an interview. “And we’re pretty much finished with our memorandum opposing a subpoena.”

Giuliani added that Trump’s attorneys are ready to “argue it before the Supreme Court, if it ever got there.”

After clearance pull, Democrats rush to back Brennan – who spied on them

The White House said that Brennan used his security clearance to “sow division and chaos,” and lend a sheen of credibility to his public criticisms of the president. The White House looked into revoking Brennan’s clearance after he accused Trump of “treason” for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month.

Straight away, Democrats jumped in to defend Brennan’s character and to blast Trump for pulling his clearance. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said that “In adding John Brennan to his enemies list, Trump demonstrates again how deeply insecure and vindictive he is.”

Tompkins: Nationwide Anti-Trump Editorial Blitz Just More Proof Journalists Don't Listen

At the start of the week when we covered The Boston Globe's 'call to action' for the nation's newspapers to collude to fight back against what they called Trump's "dirty war against the free press" the number of publications involved was at around 100, as the Globe's deputy editorial page editor, said at the time, "we have more than 100 publications signed up, and I expect that number to grow in the coming days."

That figure has indeed grown, more than tripling as of Wednesday to 350, according to statements from Boston Globe staff leading the project, and will potentially be even greater by Thursday morning, when the coordinated editorials are set to run nationwide.

Senior Chinese delegation to visit US for trade war talks as ‘sides remain far apart’

China’s commerce ministry will send a vice-ministerial level delegation to the United States for talks later this month, a move observers say is unlikely to yield any breakthrough but could lead to further negotiations aimed at de-escalating the trade war.

A statement from the ministry on Thursday said Commerce Vice-Minister Wang Shouwen had been invited by the US to lead a delegation that will meet US Treasury Undersecretary David Malpass to discuss “economic and trade issues between China and the US”.

The statement said China opposed unilateralism and trade protectionism but welcomed dialogue based on the principles of reciprocity, equality and integrity.

Confucius Institutes fall victim to US politics

New legislation targeting centres illustrates the current anti-China climate when most universities acknowledge the clear cultural and learning benefits

The University of North Florida has just announced it is closing its Confucius Institute, following a similar decision by Texas A&M University in April.

Meanwhile, tucked away in the US$716 billion John McCain National Defence Authorisation Act, just signed into law, is a provision barring any American university from using Pentagon resources for programmes involving Confucius Institutes.

If some US politicians such as Florida Senator Marco Rubio are to be believed, the institutes are there to spread Chinese communist propaganda, subvert academic freedom and free speech on American campuses, silence China critics and recruit spies.

Why Confronting Israel Is Important - The Jewish State is no Friend

I am often asked why I have this “thing” about Israel, with friends suggesting that I would be much more respected as a pundit if I were to instead concentrate on national security and political corruption. The problem with that formulation is that the so-called “special relationship” with Israel is itself the result of terrible national security and foreign policy choices that is sustained by pervasive political and media corruption, so any honest attempt to examine the one inevitably leads to the other. Most talking heads in the media avoid that dilemma by choosing to completely ignore the dark side of Israel.

Israel – not Russia – is the one foreign country that can interfere with impunity with the political processes in the United States yet it is immune from criticism.>>>

Buchanan: America’s Lengthening Enemies List

Friday, deep into the 17th year of America’s longest war, Taliban forces overran Ghazni, a provincial capital that sits on the highway from Kabul to Kandahar.

The ferocity of the Taliban offensive brought U.S. advisers along with U.S. air power, including a B-1 bomber, into the battle.

"As the casualty toll in Ghazni appeared to soar on Sunday," The Wall Street Journal reported, "hospitals were spilling over with dead bodies, corpses lay in Ghazni’s streets, and gunfire and shelling were preventing relatives from reaching cemeteries to bury their dead."

How the U.S. Prevented North and South Korea From Reaching Real Peace

In the long history of Korea, nothing compares to the 20th century division of the peninsula or the war that followed. That war has not finished, and a peace treaty remains elusive. China, North Korea and South Korea all seek a peace treaty, but 11 U.S. presidents since 1953 have been unwilling to agree.

If President Trump turns out to be the exception, that shift could help put an end to more than a half-century of conflict — and the role of the United States in determining whether peace arrives is not a small one. Neither is it coincidental: in fact, the U.S. has played a key role in keeping the conflict going as long as it has.

Donald Trump, Gunrunner for Hire

American weapons makers have dominated the global arms trade for decades. In any given year, they’ve accounted for somewhere between one-third and more than one-half the value of all international weapons sales. It’s hard to imagine things getting much worse -- or better, if you happen to be an arms trader -- but they could, and soon, if a new Trump rule on firearms exports goes through.

But let’s hold off a moment on that and assess just how bad it’s gotten before even worse hits the fan. Until recently, the Trump administration had focused its arms sales policies on the promotion of big-ticket items like fighter planes, tanks, and missile defense systems around the world. Trump himself has loudly touted U.S. weapons systems just about every time he’s had the chance, whether amid insults to allies at the recent NATO summit or at a chummy White House meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose brutal war in Yemen is fueled by U.S.-supplied arms.

The Pathway To Peace Or The Rush To War With Iran

From the noble 13th-century Persian Sufi Poet Rumi: "I go to a synagogue, church, and mosque, and I see the same spirit and the same altar."

On July 30th, President Trump offered an olive branch to Iran by stating he would “certainly meet” with “no preconditions” with Dr. Hassan Rouhani if the Iranian President were willing to do so. The offer was welcome news considering his previous incredibly unfortunate Tweet in capital letters.

Some Americans consider the President’s invitation for talks polite and timely. They think foregoing this opportunity to begin negotiations for peace is a major mistake and is to the detriments of Iran, aside from the Middle East and the United States. As Iran Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif, stated, President Trump lacks honesty. As time passes, the President will find he looks a weak and spineless person>>>

The United States, which all the way emphasizes its exclusiveness, has failed to cope with the role of the superman in settling international conflicts, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said while meeting participants in the international youth educational forum Baltartek.

She said many countries might have supported the concept of the United States’ exclusiveness, if only Washington was able to really bring more stability into this world, enhance security, make peace between countries, eliminate conflicts and prevent more ones, TASS reported.

"Who would’ve been against? It’s tremendous political, financial and moral responsibility," Zakharova said. "To be the superman who flies to the rescue, provides help and flies away."

"For some reasons the United States has failed to cope with this role,"

Israel Is 'Becoming a Full-Blown Police State,' Reza Aslan Says After Interrogation at Border

The Shin Bet lady, who already knew everything about me and my family’s journey around the world, began with “You think because you’re a public person I can’t do whatever I want with you?” I was floored. This is how interrogations begin in police states.

“Why do you hate Israel?” She asked. “I don’t hate Israel,” I replied. “But you hate our Prime Minister.” “I’m sorry is your Prime Minister Israel?” “He was democratically elected!” (No he wasn’t but let’s just drop that) “So was Trump and I hate him and still love America.”

“Oh I know all about you and Trump,” she spat. I forgot the Israeli Right Wing’s affection for our racist Neo-Nazi loving president. “You don’t think Israel should exist yes?” That’s absurd. I’m against the occupation not Israel. Then the police state part began in earnest.

Lesson from Iran

American companies that have invested so much in the fracking technology are interested in raising the price of crude oil. It can only be done if the largest producers agree on the quantities that they put on the world market. Iran since the time when the pro-American shah was deposed has not been on friendly terms with the United States and so it will not go hand in hand with American plans. That is the reason why it must be put out of the equation, and that is also why Washington is looking for pretexts to go to war with Tehran.

Former presidential adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman said Sunday she secretly recorded conversations she had in the White House, including her firing by chief of staff John Kelly in the high-security Situation Room.

PetroChina Co. may temporarily halt purchases of U.S. liquefied natural gas spot cargoes through the winter to avoid potential tariffs amid a trade conflict between the U.S. and China, according to people with knowledge of the strategy.

Under the plan, PetroChina would boost buying of spot cargoes from other countries or swap U.S. shipments with other nations in East Asia to avoid paying additional tariffs, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. PetroChina, a unit of the state-owned China National Petroleum Corp., couldn’t immediately comment when contacted by Bloomberg.
