The Case Against Iraqing Iran

The case against Iraqing Iran includes the following points:

Threatening war is a violation of the U.N. Charter.

Waging war is a violation of the U.N. Charter and of the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

Waging war without Congress is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Have you seen Iraq lately?

Have you seen the entire region?

Have you seen Afghanistan? Libya? Syria? Yemen? Pakistan? Somalia?

War supporters said the U.S. urgently needed to attack Iran in 2007. It did not attack. The claims turned out to be lies.>>>

Half of Total Trump-GOP Tax Plan Benefits Go to Richest 5%

It's simple. Profit-hungry corporations get a permanent windfall and the rich receive massive cuts. Everyone else—sooner or later, like it or not—gets to help pay for it all.

US 'World Champion of Extreme Inequality', UN Envoy Warns

The United Nations monitor on poverty and human rights has issued a devastating report on the condition of America, accusing Donald Trump and the Republican leadership in Congress of attempting to turn the country into the “world champion of extreme inequality”.

Philip Alston, the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, has completed a two-week official tour of the US by releasing an excoriating attack on the direction of the nation. Not only does he warn that the tax bill currently being rushed through Congress will hugely increase already large disparities between rich and poor, he accuses Trump and his party of consciously distorting the shape of American society in a “bid to become the most unequal society in the world”.

Trading Jerusalem for war on Iran

James Dorsey examines how Saudi and UAE complicity in President Trump’s decision to recognise occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital so that the Saudis could pursue their sectarian conflict with Iran could turn the Arab region into a firestorm – again. >>

The Enemy Within – Justin Raimondo

It’s called the “intelligence community”

Of course it was the purest coincidence that no less than three major media outlets got the Trump email story wrong. Yes, those “multiple sources” sure were busy.

It’s absurd to think that this episode is a case of simply getting it wrong: this was undoubtedly a deliberate lie, planted in the media by the same rogue “intelligence community” that invented Russia-gate. It didn’t matter that the truth would eventually come out: look at how many times the original story was tweeted and retweeted over social media, and then consider how many people don’t know it’s been debunked.

Jerusalem in My Heart – Israel Shamir

The Palestinians do know and do remember, how they were thrown out of their homes, and how the Jews moved in.

Trump is not different from his predecessors. All American Presidents declared Jerusalem – the eternal united and indivisible capital of the Jewish state. Obama did it, and so did Bush. True, they said it while running for the office, and they avoided repeating the mantra while in the White House, but they never repudiated it, either.

Ninety out of a hundred US Senators approved of Trump’s statement. Ten abstained, probably being unable to support Trump for any reason at all. Still, it was a most-approved step of the President.

Whistleblowers Line Up To Accuse Mueller Of Lying To The Senate, Surveilling Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller is facing new problems as multiple intelligence agency whistleblowers and former underlings accuse him of overseeing and covering up massive off-the-books surveillance activities during his tenure as director of the FBI.

A former FBI special agent accuses Mueller of lying to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding the scope of his surveillance programs. Another NSA and CIA whistleblower accuses Mueller of overseeing a secretive program that surveilled President Donald Trump while Trump was a private citizen — an accusation that is already being heard in court. Another whistleblower claims that former FBI agents would testify with documentation that Mueller stifled their investigations into certain terrorist networks.

Mueller "Improperly" Obtained "Tens of Thousands" Of Trump Transition Emails

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team has taken possession of "many tens of thousands" of emails from the Trump transition team, obtained through the General Services Administration - the government agency responsible for hosting the transition email system which used a "ptt.gov" address, and which according to a Trump lawyer were improperly obtained through "unlawful conduct."

The trove of documents, which includes sensitive emails to and from Trump son-in-law and top advisor Jared Kushner, comprise 12 email accounts - one of which reportedly contains around 7,000 emails. Mueller's team has reportedly been using the emails as the basis for witness interviews, sources tell Axios.

Sessions Balks At Second Special Counsel: Says Recent FBI Bombshell May Have "Innocent Explanation"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has once again balked at questions over the need for a second special counsel to investigate the Justice Department, telling reporters at a Friday press conference that while he's concerned about recent allegations of bias within the FBI, "sometimes things that might appear to be bad in the press have more innocent explanations, so fairness and justice should also be provided to our personnel."

Last week Sessions responded to mounting pressure to launch a second special counsel, stating "I've put a Senior Attorney, with the resources he may need, to review cases in our office and make a recommendation to me, if things aren't being pursued that need to be pursued, if cases may need more resources to complete in a proper manner, and to recommend to me if the standards for a special counsel are met."

Ukraine complains about Russia at wrong UN meeting

Member of State Duma Committee for International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak is not surprised at the words of the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin who, during a speech at the UN Security Council, said that Russia violates the guarantees of the Budapest Memorandum.

"I'm not surprised that Klimkin decided to utter another Ukrainian "offense" to Russia when the UN Security Council was discussing the problems of the Korean settlement," Zheleznyak said.

According to him, it is "illiterate rudeness" that is the only trump card of Kiev's foreign and domestic policy. "Poroshenko and Klimkin are ready for any awkward farce in the hope of pity and handouts of Western sponsors."

Hillary Clinton still wears a ‘medical’ boot two months after ‘breaking her toe’

On October 15, 2017, we were told that while on her book tour in the UK, 70-year-old Hillary Clinton broke her toe “running down the stairs” in heelsand falling backward, never mind the fact that during the presidential campaign last year, she could barely walk without assistance.

5 things you should know about Trump's new national security strategy

(*4)How is it different? Under President Barack Obama, the U.S. focused on the “big 4 plus 1,” which is threats from China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran, plus terrorism. The Trump strategy also names China and Russia as “revisionist powers," and North Korea and Iran as “rogue regimes.” But it also defines the threats in terms of economic competition, not just military strength.

The Trump document calls on America to defend its economic interests with its military, including trade deals and military alliances. And it stresses those alliances must be a two-way street in which allies contribute their fair share and don’t depend on the U.S. to do all the heavy lifting. Think NATO.

Decision Time on Iran

President Trump faces a Middle East reckoning in 2018.

(*THE NATIONAL REVIEW) Very soon, President Trump will have to decide whether America should remain a bystander to Iranian expansionism or take steps to confront this menace to international security and sponsor of global terrorism.

In October, when the president failed to certify Iranian compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a.k.a. the Iran nuclear deal, he began a process that is almost certain to force him to make controversial decisions in the coming months.

Congress has had 60 days to propose measures that would <<punish>> Iran for its misbehavior and strengthen the JCPOA. It has not done so.>>>

Can the President Obstruct Justice?

***
Trump’s personal lawyer, John M. Dowd, and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz denied last week that a president could ever commit obstruction of justice in the exercise of his constitutional authorities. While Dowd bluntly argued that a president “cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer,” Dershowitz espoused a more nuanced view: “A president can be charged with obstruction if he commits criminal acts beyond his constitutionally authorized acts.”

U.S. arms sold to Saudis are killing civilians in Yemen

U.S. arms sold to Saudis are killing civilians in Yemen. Now the Trump administration is set to sell them more
***
The attack, one of the deadliest for civilians in the coalition’s relentless air war against Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, helped persuade the Obama administration in December to block the sale of precision-guided munitions to the Saudi military until it addresses problems with its targeting.

But the hold was lifted last month, when President Trump announced a $110-billion package of proposed military sales to the kingdom, part of an effort to shore up a regional alliance against a resurgent Iran. The decision has left many among Yemen’s increasingly desperate population feeling abandoned and betrayed.

Federal agent alleges U.S. misconduct, cover-up in Bundy Ranch trial

A federal investigator is alleging prosecutors in the Bundy Ranch standoff trial covered up misconduct by law enforcement agents who engaged in "likely policy, ethical and legal violations."

In an 18-page memo to the Assistant U.S. Attorney General, Special Agent Larry Wooten said he "routinely observed ... a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct" among agents involved in the 2014 armed standoff.

He said his investigation indicated federal agents engaged in excessive force, civil rights and policy violations.

Time for the GOP to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won 2016

As evidenced by the outcomes of both the Virginia gubernatorial race and the Alabama Senate special election, no matter what, Democrat voters are going to be extremely motivated in 2018 to take back Congress.

For, this is no time to panic.

Instead, it is time for Republicans to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won the election in 2016. That is, cut taxes, repeal Obamacare, appoint conservative judges, get better trade deals, slash regulations, curb illegal immigration and build the southern border wall. Also, no bad deals on DACA amnesty. The wall is not enough; chain migration has to be ended.

Gowdy Eviscerates Andrew McCabe: "I'll Be Surprised If He's Still An Employee Of The FBI By This Time Next Week"

Once again echoing the dinner conversations of a growing number of American households around the country, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) ripped into FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Fox News regarding text messages released earlier this week between Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page that revealed an FBI plot, allegedly hatched in McCabe's office, to prevent a Trump presidency at all costs. Among other things, Gowdy said he would be somewhat shocked if McCabe was still an employee of the FBI "by this time next week."

"I'm still trying to figure out why 3 FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director's office because you're not supposed to discuss politics on Federal ground. And FBI agents aren't supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mc Cabe is about to get crucified publicly in these hearings next week; and were I Hillary Clinton, I would be ordering my minions to research the best place to live, and immediately, with which the US has no extradition treaty right now.
