Payback: Trump orders diplomatic response aimed at Putin
Post Date: 2017-08-21 09:55:19 by Tooconservative
Will the US response to Russias diplomatic maneuver last month hit Vladimir Putin where it hurts? After Russia demanded a cutback of 755 positions in US diplomatic personnel, Donald Trump joked that Vladimir Putin had done him a favor by saving the State Department lots of money. Trump found another way to save money cut off all non-immigrant visas for more than a week, and then severely restrict them afterward: The United States Embassy in Moscow announced Monday it would temporarily stop issuing all non-immigrant visas in Russia and then severely curtail visa operations as it slashes its staff to comply with the latest salvo in Washingtons diplomatic standoff with ...
Trump has made Afghanistan decision after 'rigorous' review: Mattis
Post Date: 2017-08-20 12:33:08 by A K A Stone
AMMAN, Reuters - President Donald Trump has made a decision on the United States' strategy for Afghanistan after a "sufficiently rigorous" review process, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Sunday. However, Mattis did not provide details on when the White House would make an announcement or what the decision was on Afghanistan, where fighting still rages more than 15 years after U.S. forces invaded and overthrew a Taliban government. Soon after taking office in January, the Trump administration began a review of U.S. policy on Afghanistan, which has expanded into a broader South Asia review. "I am very comfortable that the strategic process was sufficiently rigorous ...
Jeh Johnson: Removal of Confederate Statues a Matter of ‘Homeland Security’
Post Date: 2017-08-20 12:17:01 by A K A Stone
Former Obama administration official Jeh Johnson said the removal of Confederate statues was a matter of "public safety and homeland security" on Sunday. In the aftermath of deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., when a man with white nationalist ties was arrested for ramming his car into a crowd of counter-protesters last week and killing a woman, Confederate monuments across the country have been taken down. The furor in Charlottesville began with a protest by white supremacists against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. Johnson served as Secretary of Homeland Security under Obama, and he said on ABC's "This Week" that the monuments to Confederates were ...
Let Ukraine Defend Itself [just don't drag NATO into it]
Post Date: 2017-08-17 03:57:33 by Tooconservative
Say an expert tells you that if you dont follow his advice, the world or a substantial part of it might go up in flames. You do nothing, and two years later no fire is apparent but the same expert returns, offering the same advice. Would you take his suggestion the second time around? That is roughly the position of those who argue that we must arm Ukraine. Two years ago the Brookings Institution put out a proposal for arming Ukraine and warned that failing to do so could bring about worldwide conflagration. If you havent noticed, most of us are still walking about. Casey Michel, writing here at National Review, disputes my characterization of Ukraine ...
Atomic Scientists: North Korea’s Nuclear Missile Claims Are a Hoax
Post Date: 2017-08-15 09:38:21 by Deckard
President Donald Trump continued his blustery North Korea rhetoric on Friday, tweeting that the U.S. military was locked and loaded and later telling reporters that Kim Jong-un had better not make any overt threats against the United States. This man will not get away with what he is doing, Trump told reporters from his golf club in New Jersey, adding that if Kim makes a move against the U.S. or its allies he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast. In the midst of this spike in tension between the United States and the Hermit Kingdom, a team of independent rocket experts ...

Kim Jong Un warns he could change his mind if the U.S. persists in extremely dangerous reckless actions SEOULNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyangs state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions. The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was locked and loaded and could engulf the ...
Remember When: Rumsfeld Company Sold Nuclear Weapon Equipment to North Korea
Post Date: 2017-08-12 10:09:52 by Deckard
U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld served on the board of a Swiss company that in 2000 sold light water nuclear reactors to the government of North Korea, which critics, including Pentagon hardliners, say could be used to produce nuclear weapons. Rumsfelds involvement in the $200 million deal with the Zurich-based engineering company ABB is seen as an embarrassment to the Bush administration, which vehemently opposed the deal during the 2000 presidential campaign, reports the London-based Guardian. One could draw the conclusion that economic and personal interests took precedent over non-proliferation, said Steve LaMontagne of the Center for Arms Control and ...
Muzzle Trump or it’s the end of the world as we know it
Post Date: 2017-08-11 18:44:25 by Willie Green
Heres the good news about the crisis over North Korea. We are not going to war. Donald Trump is not going to nuke Pyongyang, reckless, rhetorical threats to the contrary. Nor is North Koreas Kim Jong Un going to nuke Guam. Yes, I know the president just threatened to meet any more North Korean threats to the United States with fire and fury like the world has never seen. This is the kind of extreme military rhetoric by a U.S. president the world has never seen, except by Harry S. Truman before bombing Nagasaki. Kim responded by threatening a pre-emptive strike against Guam, a U.S. territory with American military bases. But a pre-emptive war is not on the horizon, ...
Raiders of the Caracas ark: Guess who’s profiting off Veneuzela’s collapse?
Post Date: 2017-08-11 14:57:39 by Tooconservative
The final political stage of the socialist collapse in Venezuela will be a brutal dictatorship run by Nicolas Maduro. The final economic stage will be a fire sale of Venezuelas assets to prop it up. Guess whos snapping up the oil reserves from Maduro? Come on three guesses, and the first two dont count: Venezuelas unravelling socialist government is increasingly turning to ally Russia for the cash and credit it needs to survive and offering prized state-owned oil assets in return, sources familiar with the negotiations told Reuters. As Caracas struggles to contain an economic meltdown and violent street protests, Moscow is using its position as ...
Top Geopolitical Expert Issues Dire Warning: ‘Beware of False Flag’ Blamed on North Korea
Post Date: 2017-08-10 10:25:07 by Deckard
After years of threatening to carry out a nuclear attack on the United States, North Korea is finally closer than it has ever been to fulfilling its notorious threataccording to politicians and mainstream media outlets across the country. But according to one geopolitical analyst, Americans should be more concerned about the possibility of a false flag attack. In a report for Asia Times, analyst Pepe Escobar noted that the same people who are now saying that North Korea has created a miniaturized nuclear warhead capable of fitting its recently tested ICBM are the people who sold the lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Western corporate media would ...
At Least Eight Reasons Why the Talk of North Korea Leveling Seoul Is Simply Wrong
Post Date: 2017-08-10 10:01:32 by Tooconservative
War is destruction and death. Its serious business. So the facts should be taken seriously and measured accurately. Ive touched on this subject in the comments several times in the past here at RedState, but have put off writing about it because Ive discovered there is an inverse relationship to how long it takes me to write a story and the interest it gets. However, the North Korea crisis makes this appropriate and necessary I think. Ill use as my point of departure a Washington Post story from today titled Twenty-five million reasons the U.S. hasnt struck North Korea. It discusses the idea that if war breaks out between North Korea and the United States ...
Brian Williams: It’s ‘Our Job’ to ‘Scare People To Death’ Over North Korea
Post Date: 2017-08-10 05:50:05 by Deckard
On Tuesday night, MSNBCs Brian Williams made a rather stunning admission while discussing the latest tensions with North Korea with his panel. After Andrea Mitchell explained the high risks of the United States acting preemptively, The 11th Hour host said this to MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance: Malcolm, our job tonight is to actually scare people to death on this subject so the talk isnt as free as it is about a preemptive or a surgical military strike. You know that part of the world. The population centers, Andrea and the General [Barry McCaffrey] have talked about, South Korea, the Japanese, and so on and so on. Mitchell can be seen shaking her head in ...
London is now the acid attack capital of the world, with attacks at “epidemic levels”
Post Date: 2017-08-09 08:18:03 by IbJensen
Acid attacks are a favorite tactic of Muslims in Pakistan. This epidemic is a direct consequence of Muslim immigration into Britain. This savagery is directly due to the policies of Theresa May and her cohorts. While perpetrators are not confined to any one community, between 2011 and 2016 attacks in London tended to be concentrated in areas which have experienced high levels of immigration. Newham, Barking and Dagenham, and Tower Hamlets all of which are minority White British topped the list for total attacks in the period.

N. Korea successfully miniaturizes nuclear warheads, officials say
Post Date: 2017-08-08 19:17:44 by Stoner
North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead to mount on a ballistic missile, according to a new report. The assessment from the Defense Intelligence Agency, reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, puts Pyongyang closer than ever before to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power capable of striking the United States with a nuclear weapon, something it has often threatened to do. The development raises the stakes for President Trump, who has vowed that he will not allow North Korea to obtain a nuclear weapon that can strike the U.S. Still, officials and experts have said that North Korea has yet to cross key technological hurdles with its nuclear program, including ...

Trump Caves to Deep State - Signs Russia Sanctions Bill
Post Date: 2017-08-07 07:29:45 by Deckard
U.S. President Donald Trump has now signed into law what may be considered one of the most insane pieces of legislation ever to come out of the U.S. Congress. While the law itself will not result in major direct actions in terms of immediately attributable effect, it will have far reaching repercussions both at home and abroad. The law, passed almost unanimously in both the House and Senate had sat for days on Trumps desk awaiting the Presidents signature. The bill is aimed at a number of Russian industries and also takes aim at foreign banks that do business with North Korea. The bill contains a number of provisions implementing sanctions against Iran as ...

WARSAW Defying an order from the European Unions highest court, the Polish government said on Monday that it would continue logging in Bialowieza Forest, the last primeval forest in Europe and a habitat for hundreds of bison. The decision is the latest challenge by Poland to the legal authority of the European Union, which Poland joined in 2004, and could result in financial penalties. [...] The Bialowieza Forest, a Unesco World Heritage site, is a relic of ancient woodlands in the middle of the European lowlands, at the border of Poland and Belarus. It has been at the center of a heated debate since Polands government tripled the logging limits last year and, in ...
South Korea considers a nuclear arsenal to counter the North
Post Date: 2017-07-31 10:33:03 by Tooconservative
No longer sure they can rely on the United States, an increasing number of South Korean lawmakers say their country should develop its own nuclear arsenal to deter an attack by Kim Jong Un, their belligerent neighbor to the north. North Koreas rapid missile advances, including successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in July and again on Friday, are reviving calls for South Korea to assert its nuclear sovereignty. South Koreans are wary of President Donald Trumps isolationist rhetoric and his calls for Asian allies to shoulder more of the defense burdens borne by the U.S. military.

"It's Time To Retaliate": Putin Expels 755 U.S. Diplomats
Post Date: 2017-07-31 00:34:29 by hondo68
When Russia warned on Friday that it would retaliate proportionately after it announced it would seize two diplomatic compounds used by the US in Russia and added that it would reduce the number of US diplomatic service staff in the country to equal the number of Russian diplomats in the US by September 1, calculated by the local press at 455, it wasn't joking. Moments ago, speaking in an interview on the Rossiya 1 TV channel, Vladimir Putin said that 755 American diplomats will be expelled, or as he phrased it "will have to leave Russia as a result of Washington's own policies", a move which as we previewed on Friday will make the diplomatic missions of Russia and the ...

Trump Is Being Moved Aside So That Conflict with Russia Can Proceed
Post Date: 2017-07-28 06:36:41 by Deckard
What is the Congress up to with their stupid bill that imposes more sanctions and removes the power of President Trump to rescind the sanctions that President Obama imposed? Congress is doing two things. One is that Congress is serving their campaign contributors in the military/security complex by being tougher with Russia, thus keeping the orchestrated threat alive so that Americans denied health care dont start looking at the massive military/security budget as a place to find money for health care. The other is to put President Trump in a box. If Trump vetos this encroachment on presidential power, Congress and the presstitute media will present the veto as absolute proof that ...

Post Date: 2017-07-25 11:50:07 by Tooconservative
Weve known that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been getting particularly cozy with Vladimir Putin for a while now, even as he mocks and belittles his supposed NATO allies. When it comes to the situation in Syria its always been questionable as to which side he was on and what his long range intentions were. Some of those questions were answered this week when Erdogan announced that he has a signed deal in hand for Turkey to receive the S-400 missile system from Russia. (Reuters) Turkey has made progress in plans to procure an S-400 missile defense system from Russia and signatures have been signed, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday. Steps have been ...
