America's Only Choices: Jewish Communism or Jewish Zionism

The article below is a reminder that George Soros pushed through the Iran nuclear deal much to the consternation of Benjamin Netanyahu. Trump came to his rescue. Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015, just as Iran was being finalized. The only reason Americans got an alternative to Clinton was due to this schism in World Jewry between Communists and Zionists. The Communists, led by George Soros, and fronted by Obama and Clinton, represent the disintegration of the nation-state, including Israel. The nationalists led by Netanyahu and fronted by Trump represents a handful of powerful nation-states dominated by Israel. This is a disagreement between Masonic lodges. In Trump, Americans are getting the crumbs from Israel's table.

Risking World War For Israel:Series of articles.

Those who cry wolf over the deal and want to attack Iran are only following the diktats of the Israeli terrorist-in-chief Benjamin Netanyahu. After all, he’s their god and whatever he says goes – that’s the only explanation for their idiotic stand. Watch this video of Netanyahu lambasting Iran in the US Congress, or not – after all, who can stand to watch that demonic and arrogant cad ordering the US around.

Consequently, when the Middle East is set ablaze and millions of people lose their lives, the world will know who to haul at The Hague for crimes against humanity.

Iran's supreme leader attacks Trump's '10 lies' and says 'America can't do a damn thing' as politicians set FIRE to US flag, chant 'Death to America' and vow to keep spending on ballistic missiles amid fallout over nuclear deal

Iran's Supreme Leader has warned 'America can't do a damn thing' as politicians burned a US flag in parliament in the wake of Donald Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

Without elaborating, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the US President of '10 lies' during his explosive annoucement yesterday and warned his country not to trust America, Britain, France and Germany.

His comments came as Iranian politicians chanted 'death to America', set fire to a US flag and a symbolic copy of the Iran deal and vowed to continue spending on the country's ballistic missile program.

Once Upon A Time Long Ago Truth Was Important

I wonder how many people, not just Americans but those in other countries, have come to the conclusion that the United States today is a less free and less aware society than the societies in the dystopian novels of the 20th century or in movies such as The Matrix and V for Vendetta. Just as people in the dystopian novels had no idea of their real situation, few Americans do either.

What are we to make of the extraordinary war crimes committed by the United States in the 21st century that have destroyed in whole or part seven countries, resulting in millions of dead, maimed, orphaned, and displaced peoples? Consider, for example, the latest Washington war crime, the illegal attack on Syria. Instead of protesting this illegality, the American media egged it on, cheering impending death and destruction.

Europeans Warn US Not to Block Them From Staying in Iran Deal

Britain, France, and Germany have issued statements following President Trump’s withdrawal from the P5+1 nuclear deal, warning the US that they must “avoid taking action which obstructs” the rest of the signatories from continuing with the deal.

Iran plans to stay in the deal, as do the other P4+1 nations. This involves substantial sanction relief for Iran and allowing Western businesses to trade with Iran. Though the US never really complied with this, European nations have tried to allow such deals, and don’t want the US to stop them.

Syrian state media says Israel attacked just after U.S. quit Iran deal

JERUSALEM/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian state media accused Israel of launching missiles at a target near Damascus on Tuesday, shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was quitting the Iranian nuclear deal, a move that had prompted Israel to go on high alert.

The Israeli military said that, upon identifying “irregular activity” by Iranian forces in Syria, it instructed civic authorities on the Golan Heights to ready bomb shelters, deployed new defenses and mobilized some reservist forces.

Israel’s top general, Gadi Eizenkott, canceled a scheduled appearance at an annual security conference and was conferring with Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman and other national security chiefs, officials said.

Trump’s hard tack against the nuclear deal, while welcomed by Israel, has stirred fears of a possible regional flare-up.

May 09 08:06

Maybe Israel is interfering in our politics over the Iran Deal? Naaah!

For the last three years, Benjamin Netanyahu has been doing everything he can to sink the Iran deal, from speaking in Congress against the deal in 2015 with the support of Democrats who were defying President Obama on his signature foreign policy achievement, to sending his Defense Minister over to try to sink the deal, to cartoon presentations at the U.N., and a video lecture in English last week saying, Iran Lies. Netanyahu’s interference was so obtuse that Obama once said that Israel was the only country that was against the deal and it would be an “abrogation of my constitutional duty” if he didn’t push the Iran deal.

May 09 07:42

America’s Word Is Worthless

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

In Trump We Trust: Global Oil Prices Skyrocket as US Exits Iran Deal

Shortly after President Donald Trump announced that Washington was quitting the Iran nuclear deal, the US Treasury pledged to pursue efforts to significantly reduce purchases of Iranian crude oil.

The oil price has skyrocketed to its highest in more than three years, just 12 hours after President Donald Trump said that that the US is abandoning the "horrible and one-sided" Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, according to The Financial Times.

During early trading in London on Wednesday, Brent Crude, which serves as a major benchmark price for purchases of oil worldwide, increased by 3.1 percent to 77.20 dollars per barrel, while the US benchmark, WTI, rose by a similar amount, to 70.93. dollars per barrel.

Opinion: It’s not just Iran and North Korea: Denuclearization means the U.S. too

There are two types of foreign policy: one based on the principle “might makes right,” and one based on the international rule of law. The United States wants to have it both ways: to hold other countries accountable to international law while exempting itself. And nowhere is this truer than on the matter of nuclear weapons.

America’s approach is doomed to fail. As Jesus declared, “all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” Rather than perishing, it’s time to hold all countries, including the U.S. and other nuclear powers, accountable to the international rules of nonproliferation.

Trump withdraws the U.S. from Iran nuclear deal.

Xi tells Trump that North Korea wants peace, but has security concerns

China’s Xi Jinping has urged Donald Trump to consider Pyongyang’s legitimate security concerns ahead of a highly-anticipated summit between the US president and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Xi phoned Trump shortly after meeting with Kim on Tuesday in northern China, the North Korean leader’s second visit to China in as many months. According to Chinese state media, Xi told Trump that China supports a summit between the United States and North Korea and hoped that Washington would help to foster trust between the two sides by acknowledging Pyongyang’s security concerns.

The Chinese president also relayed to Trump that Kim wanted to discuss “phased and synchronous measures” to help ease tensions over North Korea’s nuclear program.

Trump lacks ‘mental capacities,’ Iran says after US pulls out of nuclear deal

The speaker of Iran’s parliament has offered a particularly scathing review of US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying Trump does not have the “mental capacity” for his job.

Trump announced that he was withdrawing the United States from the landmark deal on Tuesday, sparking an avalanche of criticism from both sides of the political divide in America and also upsetting the international community, including US allies and Russia.

The speaker of Iran’s parliament, Ali Larijani, took a particularly dim view of the decision telling the Iranian assembly that: "Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues.”

"Trump's abandoning of the nuclear deal was a diplomatic show… Iran has no obligation to honor its commitments under the current situation,” Larijani said. "It is obvious that Trump only understands the language of force.”

Europe DEPENDS on America! Merkel, May and Macron savaged for US criticism over Iran

Mr Trump said the agreement was “disastrous” and a “great embarrassment”, adding: “If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen.

"In just a short period of time, the world's leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world's most dangerous weapon.”

But European leaders quickly hit out at Mr Trump and in a joint statement, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel labelled the decision a matter of “regret and concern” and would defy the US President in remaining committed to the deal.

Britain, France and Germany had made attempts to persuade the US President to preserve the deal - Mr Macron and Ms Merkel made trips to Washington over the past month, while Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made a last-ditch trip over the weekend.

Trump an Embarrassment as President, a Threat to World Peace

It was foolhardy to expect positive change under his leadership. Whoever heard of a billionaire good guy, amassing wealth the old-fashioned way.

So far in office, he exceeded the recklessness and indifference to lawful governance of his predecessors domestically and geopolitically.

He matched Star Trek, going beyond where earlier administrations went before, exceeding the ruthlessness and indifference to the general welfare of his predecessors.

Instead of draining the swamp, he filled it with neocon warmakers, crooked billionaires, Wall Street predators, corporate scoundrels, and others hostile to governance serving everyone equitably.

His making America great again scam is only for the privileged few, no others. He broke every lofty promise made, showing contempt for world peace, rule of law principles, democratic values and ordinary people everywhere.

The myth of an anti-establishment candidate vanished straightaway after he took office.

UN is ‘abusive’ and ‘bullying’ Israel – Haley

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says she “just started yelling at everybody” when she saw how UN members were constantly “bullying” Israel for things like its settlement push into Palestine and crackdown on Gaza protesters.

“It was abusive, how bad the international community was to Israel. It reminded me of a kid being bullied in the playground,” Haley told the Americas Society/Council of the Americas (AS/COA) annual conference, which was held on Tuesday at the State Department.

“I just wasn’t going to have it. It was just so upsetting to see, that I just started yelling at everybody,” she added. Haley told everyone at the UN that “we had the back of Israel, and if they were going to mess with Israel they had to mess with the US.”

US officials growing increasingly concerned Iran could attack Israel

There are increasing concerns Iran is on the cusp of an attack against Israel, several US military officials told CNN.

Intelligence is not clear on when an attack could come and what form it would take, they said, with one official noting that "if there is an attack it might not be immediately clear it's Iran."

The US is watching very closely to see if Iranian-backed actions could come from inside Syria or Lebanon, or even from inside Iran itself, though that would be considered a major military escalation.

Tehran Ready to Resume Its Nuclear Work Amid US Decision on Deal - Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has described the US decision to withdraw from the Iranian Nuclear Deal as "psychological warfare."

Tehran has fulfilled the obligations under the nuclear deal, while the United States has never done this, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday.

"Tonight we witnessed important historical experience. For the past 40 years we have been repeating that Iran is a country that is committed to its obligations, while the United States is a country that has never been committed to its obligations," Rouhani said in an address to the Iranian people following US President Trump's announcement of the US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal.

Trump will announce plans to pull out of Iran nuclear deal despite pleas from European leaders

President Trump will announce Tuesday that he is withdrawing from the international nuclear deal with Iran and reimposing U.S. sanctions against Tehran, according to people familiar with the matter.

Trump’s decision, to be announced at the White House at 2 p.m., follows the failure of last-ditch efforts by Britain, France and Germany to convince him that his concerns about “flaws” in the accord could be addressed without violating its terms or ending it altogether.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump is on TV now showering us all with propaganda about the "lunacy" of Iran.

White House Threatens Beijing With "Consequences" Should Missiles Remain In South China Sea

Trump "Committed To Regime Change" In Iran: Giuliani

President Donald Trump is committed to regime change in Iran, said Rudy Giuliani, Trump's newest controversial attorney (although perhaps not for long) and longtime informal advisor.

Speaking to reporters after a Saturday keynote to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington, Giuliani said "We got a president who is tough, who does not listen to the people who are naysayers, and a president who is as committed to regime change as we are." In other words, pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal is now being conflated with regime change in Iran.

Giuliani says he's been a supporter of regime change for "ten years," that it's the only way to peace in the middle east, and that it's "more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just like Hitler was committed to regime change in France!

Trump Hints At Legal Action Against Mueller’s Team: The ’13 Angry Democrats’

President Donald Trump suggested Monday that “13 angry Democrats” on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team could face legal action over alleged “conflicts of interest.” This comes after the investigation has already run into numerous snags, including Mueller’s inability to produce any evidence.

“The 13 Angry Democrats in charge of the Russian Witch Hunt are starting to find out that there is a Court System in place that actually protects people from injustice…and just wait ’till the Courts get to see your unrevealed Conflicts of Interest!” Trump said.

Trump’s Iran strategy: Telling fibs and sowing fear

There has been so much noise surrounding Iran and the nuclear agreement, that we haven’t been able to listen to the most important thing in the past few days—the signs.

Since signing the nuclear deal, Iran hasn’t violated a single article of the agreement. This is being said not only by IAEA inspectors, but by Israeli security officials as well. This is the only fact President Donald Trump should have considered when deciding whether the United States should walk away from the deal, a move the Iranians say will immediately free Iran of its obligations to shelve its nuclear weapon programs.

Clearly, we would have been better off with a more extensive agreement, forcing Iran to halt its ballistic missile program and stop arming and inciting terror. But that’s not the issue: The agreement was signed to stop Iran from having military nuclear ability. And this goal has so far been achieved by the agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One needs to recall that Iran agreed to the JCPOA because they had already ceased trying to build nuclear weapons back in 2003. Hence, the cost of the deal was negligible for them. But adding in the long range missiles would have been a deal breaker.

Mueller rejects Trump request to answer questions in writing

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now on President Trump's legal team, told CBS News correspondent Paula Reid Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller's office has rejected proposals to allow Mr. Trump to answer questions from investigators in writing.

The president's legal team has signaled that this would be their preferred format for a possible interview, since it helps protect Mr. Trump from the possibility of lying or misleading investigators, which is a criminal offense.

Giuliani told CBS News it will take up to three weeks for him to get fully up to speed on the facts of the investigation and be prepared to engage in formal negotiations with the special counsel about the terms of a possible interview with Mr. Trump.

Giuliani told Reid that he and the president's legal team continue to be in communication with the special counsel, but that he wants to have a better sense of the facts before engaging in formal negotiations about a possible interview.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Giuliani seems to be doing more harm than good for Trump.

The Myth of Low US Unemployment

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Media propaganda maintains the myth, including a NYT report in its latest edition, saying:

Reality is polar opposite. Trump crowed about the phony Friday Labor Department (BLS) report tweeting: “JUST OUT: 3.9% Unemployment. 4% is Broken!”

America’s privileged class never had things better. Unreported is continuation of protracted main street depression conditions.

Rand Paul: Congress Moves to Give the President Unlimited War Powers

In the near future, Congress will debate a new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). I use the word “debate” lightly. So far, no hearings have been scheduled, and no testimony is likely to be heard unless something changes. That’s a shame, because this is a serious matter, and this is a deeply flawed AUMF.

For some time now, Congress has abdicated its responsibility to declare war. The status quo is that we are at war anywhere and anytime the president says so.

So Congress—in a very Congress way of doing things—has a “solution.” Instead of reclaiming its constitutional authority, it instead intends to codify the unacceptable, unconstitutional status quo.

It is clear upon reading the AUMF, put forward by Senators Tim Kaine and Bob Corker, that it gives nearly unlimited power to this or any other president to be at war whenever he or she wants, with minimal justification and no prior specific authority.

CIA director Gina Haspel's Thailand torture ties

When Gina Haspel was nominated as the next head of the CIA in March, it re-opened debate on a murky period of recent US history - the use of secretive overseas prisons to torture terror suspects. As the BBC's South East Asia correspondent Jonathan Head reports, the spotlight has fallen on Thailand, and one such "black site" which Haspel once ran.

In early April 2002, a plane took off from an undisclosed air base in Pakistan, en route to Thailand. On board was a special passenger.

Abu Zubaydah, a 31-year-old Saudi-born Palestinian, believed to be one of Osama Bin Laden's top lieutenants, had been captured a few days earlier in a joint US-Pakistani raid on Al Qaeda safe houses in Faisalabad.

He was now in the hands of CIA agents, who had decided to make him the first "high-value detainee" to be subjected to what they called "enhanced interrogation techniques" - something human rights groups say amounts to torture.

Giuliani: Trump Will Kill Iran Nuclear Deal

Speaking this weekend at an anti-Iran conference, President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani declared that the president would withdraw the US from the Iran nuclear deal. He went on to insist this would lead to regime change in Iran.

Giuliani held up a piece of paper meant to represent the Iran deal, yelling at the crowd “what do you think is going to happen to that agreement?” He ripped up the paper and then spat on it. President Trump has previously set an ultimatum of May 12 for withdrawing from the deal.

Giuliani went on to say that he’s been advocating a US-imposed regime change in Iran for longer than he can remember. He said this regime change was the key to Mideast peace, and “more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal.”

Republican House Armed Services Chair Warns Trump Against Leaving Iran Deal

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Rep. Mac Thornberry, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, warned it would be a mistake for President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal. Thornberry said he’d opposed the deal initially in 2015.

At this point, however, the chairman noted that losing the deal would greatly erode US leverage against Iran. He noted it would likely mean the end of inspector access to Iran facilities and cost the US visibility on Iran’s civilian nuclear program.

President Trump set a May 12 ultimatum for the deal to be changed, threatening to withdraw if that didn’t happen. With less than a week to go, European efforts to placate him don’t appear to have accomplished much.

China Has Halted Its US Soybean Orders Due to Trade Tensions

The market fear has raised since China issued the new tariff list of 106 U.S. products. Targeting at soybean, corn, cotton, sorghum and other U.S. agricultural exports, the additional tariff would result in the severe export decline as well as the growing panic of U.S. farming and agricultural industry. Today, U.S. soybean market’s biggest fear has been confirmed. Bunge, world’s biggest oilseed processor says China has essentially stopped buying U.S. supplies amid the brewing trade war, reported by Bloomberg.

Instead of buying U.S. soybeans, China is turning the sourcing region to Brazil and Canada, mostly Brazil. Many experts have predicted Brazil would be one of the beneficiaries in U.S-China trade war and the best alternative soybean exporter to the U.S.. Soren Schroder, chief executive of Bunge, said that he saw the U.S. making “very little if any” sales of soybeans to China, and not sure about how long it will last.

California School Mural Depicts Aztec Warrior Holding Trump’s Severed Head, Heart

Artists in Chula Vista, California, who painted a school mural depicting an Aztec warrior carrying the severed head of President Donald Trump on a spear have decided to change the mural after a storm of protest.

The mural also depicted the warrior holding a human heart — presumably, that of the president. The image recalls well-documented rituals of human sacrifice among the Aztecs, who are also thought to have eaten their victims.

The mural was painted several days ago and then immediately covered up after local news reporters learned of it. Artist Sasha Andrade Mercado posted images of the mural to social media regardless, decrying what she called censorship.

Several days later, the mural has been repainted to remove the offending image.

FLASHBACK - New War in the Middle East? - Washington Is Dancing To the Tune Being Played by Israel

How many Americans are aware that every two years the United States military engages in large scale exercises with the Israeli Defense Forces that simulate wars against Israel’s neighbors? Three thousand American soldiers are in Israel right now involved in maneuvers that are focused on countering a missile attack from Lebanon. When the exercise, known as Juniper Cobra, was run in 2016 the U.S. commander Lt. Gen. Timothy Ray, who appeared to confuse American national security with that of a small Middle Eastern state, described it as the European Command’s “highest priority” drill that year. He then added that “this exercise increases our military readiness, but just as importantly it also signals our resolve to support Israel.”

Trump, Netanyahu Keep Taking Shots at Iran Deal While Rest of World Shakes Its Head

Trump has raised the hackles of global powers by marching lock-step with Israel, which has persistently tried to torpedo the Iran nuclear deal while ironically claiming that Iran is building its arsenal to menace its neighbors.

Netanyahu’s Evidence Wasn’t Just Old, Some of It Was Fabricated

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim in his theatrical 20-minute presentation of an Israeli physical seizure of Iran’s “atomic archive” in Tehran would certainly have been the “great intelligence achievement” he boasted if it had actually happened. But the claim does not hold up under careful scrutiny, and his assertion that Israel now possesses a vast documentary record of a covert Iranian nuclear weapons program is certainly fraudulent.

'Pandora's Box': Macron Warns US Exit From Iran Nuclear Deal Might Mean War

A May 12 deadline is looming for US President Donald Trump to decide whether to scrap an internationally-brokered nuclear deal with Iran and re-impose sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

A potential US withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal is fraught with the most negative scenarios and is hardly something to look forward to, French President Emmanuel Macron told the German weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel.

“This means that we would open Pandora’s Box, which is tantamount to war. I don’t think [US President] Donald Trump wants war,” Macron said in an interview which appeared in Friday’s issue of the magazine.

During his visit to Washington last month President Macron tried to dissuade Donald Trump from walking away from the Iran nuclear agreement.

Even though Trump has threatened to quit the 2015 accord, he still said that he might go along with a European proposal to broker an add-on deal to cover Washington’s concerns about the agreement.

REVEALED: Trump team 'hired Israeli spy firm to collect dirt on Obama officials in an attempt to discredit Iran nuclear deal'

Aides to President Donald Trump reportedly contracted an Israeli private security firm to collect dirt on Obama administration officials and discredit the Iran nuclear deal.

The operation to 'get dirt' on Barack Obama's former staffers Ben Rhodes and Colin Kahl was launched last May, according to unnamed sources and documents cited by UK newspaper The Observer.

The sources said that officials linked to Trump's team contacted Israeli investigators just days after Trump visited Tel Aviv a year ago, his first foreign trip as US president.

The goal was apparently to discredit the Iran nuclear deal framework, which Trump has repeatedly threatened to scuttle ahead of a key May 12 deadline for certifying Iran's compliance.

As US Military Effectiveness And Diplomacy Fade, Many Countries Start Ignoring Washington

Diplomatic work continues in some of the areas with the highest geopolitical tensions in the world. In recent days there have been high-level meetings and contacts between Turkey, Iran and Russia over the situation in Syria; meetings between Modi and Xi Jinping to ease tensions between India and China; and finally, the historic meeting between Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un. The common component in all these meetings is the absence of the United States, which may explain the excellent progress that has been seen.

Iran ignites World War 3 FEARS with plans to SCRAP nuclear deal and DEVELOP weapons

Iran has vowed to restrict inspector access to its nuclear sites if Donald Trump pulls the US out of the agreement next week, according to a senior Iranian official.

They added that Tehran is believed to have drawn up various possible responses if Donald Trump refuses to extend a waiver on US sanctions on May 12.

Iran is considering resuming enrichment of uranium to 20 percent.

They are also considering ceasing to grant International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors access to Iranian nuclear sites.

Reacting to Trump’s controversial speech, former French President Francois Hollande tweeted: “Donald Trump’s shameful remarks and obscene fake grief tell a great deal about what he thinks about France and its values. The friendship between our two peoples will not be tainted by disrespect and outrage. All my thoughts are with the victims of November 13th.”

He continued, “If you have the evidence that shows you, that indicates, that leads you to nothing else but this president being racist, then I feel it’s my obligation as a journalist to say it. On that night I said it, and I don’t regret saying it. I believe that to be true.”

SOURCES: TRUMP TO ASK ISRAEL TO WITHDRAW FROM 4 EAST J'LEM NEIGHBORHOODS

The Trump administration will ask Israel to withdraw from four Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem, which will likely become the capital of a future Palestinian state, US officials told Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman during his visit to Washington last week.

The transfer of control over the neighborhoods – Jebl Mukabar, Isawiya, Shuafat and Abu Dis – was presented to Liberman as just one piece of the larger peace plan the administration has been working on over the last year. Israel, the officials indicated, would be expected to accept the plan once it is presented despite the potentially painful concessions.

Donald Trump doesn't take Britain, France or Germany seriously

Barack Obama wasn't very interested in Europe. Something which was made clear in 2010, when he didn't even show up for an EU-US summit in Madrid. Instead, at least in the early part of his presidency, Obama focused on Asia. Leaving the old continent to dwell on its diminished importance in Washington.

Yet, despite this snub, Obama generally went through the motions and treated its leaders with respect. Indeed, he belatedly realized that the likes of Angela Merkel and David Cameron were liberal bedfellows useful for his issues-driven presidency. Nevertheless, there's a lingering feeling that the Democrat darling never really got Europe.

By contrast, his successor Trump, with his family roots in Germany and Scotland, arguably understands the place better than any US president since John F. Kennedy. He's married into both Czechia and Slovenia and spent decades crisscrossing the continent, pursing business deals from County Clare in Ireland to the Russian capital of Moscow.

After US-China Talks Fail, Analysts Say To Get Trump And Xi Involved

To avoid more rounds of threatened sanctions, analysts suggest that the two nations’ leaders must resolve the toughest
issues

China and the United States may be plunged into another round of trade sanction threats after high-level talks between trade representatives failed to secure any breakthroughs, and it will be up to negotiations between the two nations’ top leaders to resolve the deep rifts, Chinese analysts said.

Led by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He, the talks were held over less than 48 hours in Beijing and resulted in the two nations agreeing to have more dialogue, but no other tangible achievements.

The Chinese government only released a brief statement wrapping up the trade talks on Friday, calling the negotiations “candid and efficient” – diplomatic language meaning that they were heated and short. A statement from the White House also described the discussions as “frank”.

Pompeo is real hawk on Iran & will reinforce Trump’s worst tendencies – Peter Kuznick

Afghanistan was a distraction for George W. Bush and North Korea is the same for Donald Trump. While the former set his sights on Iraq, Trump is after Iran – so says Peter Kuznick, a history professor at American University.

Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo was officially made Washington's top diplomat for foreign policy Wednesday after he was sworn in as the new secretary of state. He's been given a strong endorsement by President Trump – in stark contrast to his predecessor Rex Tillerson who was often at odds with the commander in chief.

After a series of overseas trips, Pompeo will spend the next several weeks in Washington attempting to pick up where Tillerson left off. However, Kuznick fears US foreign policy might take on a more hostile approach under Pompeo.

The top diplomat noted that relations between the US and Russia are continuing to deteriorate at present. “Even if there is some positive input from the president, it is being reversed by Russophobic sentiments soaring in the US establishment,” Lavrov said.

Rejecting EU attempts to keep Iran deal + staying in Syria = more regime changes on the US mind?

French President Emmanuel “Little Macro” Macron and German Chancellor Angela “Mutti” Merkel might just as well have stayed home and saved the carbon emissions spewed out during their flights to Washington.

Both came with the same task – to convince President Donald Trump not to pull the US out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the JCPOA) regarding Iran’s nuclear program. It was a fool’s errand.

Macron, in every way the junior representative of the Franco-German partnership at the heart of the European Union (EU), was the guest of honor at Trump’s first formal state dinner. He exploited his improbable “bromance” with Trump and his participation in last month’s strike on Syria for all he was worth – which, in the end, wasn’t much. Merkel, whose dislike for Trump is notorious and mutual, fared no better.

"Unaccountable" Pentagon Officials Have "Weaponized" Vetting Of Trump Appointees: WSJ

Nothing ends a Washington career like being branded an unacceptable national-security risk. That’s why officials adjudicating personnel-security cases must act in a mature, objective and nonpartisan fashion. But when it comes to vetting Trump appointees, they often aren’t.

Instead, security clearances are being weaponized against the White House by hostile career bureaucrats, thwarting the president’s agenda by holding up or blocking appointees.

Consider the case of Adam Lovinger. Mr. Lovinger is a highly regarded and politically conservative Defense Department official. In January 2017, the Trump administration made a “by name” request for him to serve as a senior director on the White House National Security Council.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This Leak Revealed Robert Mueller’s Awful Plan To Impeach Trump

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted a list of 48 questions to President Donald Trump’s legal team he hopes to have answered in a prospective interview as part of the investigation into possible obstruction of justice and campaign collusion with Russia.

The New York Times obtained the list of questions, which are moistly related to a potential obstruction of justice case against Trump.

Five questions relate to Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser who was forced to resign on Feb. 13, 2017. Eighteen questions focus on James Comey, who Trump fired as FBI director on May 9, 2017. Eight questions center on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and 13 regard possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Perhaps the most intriguing question regarding possible collusion is about Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a notorious warmonger, serial liar and supremacist racialist who used to lead the closest thing Israel has to a fascist party until parties even more extreme got elected to parliament, is attempting to bamboozle the clueless Trump into getting on a war footing with Iran.

Netanyahu’s breathless announcement that there was a potential weapons aspect to Iran’s nuclear enrichment program has been known for a decade and a half.

Netanyahu even seems to have provoked the White House to issue a communique falsely stating that Iran has a weapons program presently, which it promptly had to retract. The incident is so scary because it shows how easy it is to manipulate the erratic Trump and his not-ready-for-prime-time staff. That sort of thing, David Frum said on Twitter, can cause a war. And he should know.

Oil markets brace for Trump to kill Iran deal

The Iran nuclear deal may be doomed, at least if you believe the global oil market.

Oil prices have surged partly because of mounting expectations that President Trump will kill the 2015 agreement, which allowed Iran to export more crude. Trump must decide by May 12 whether to re-impose sanctions on the OPEC nation.

Brent crude, the global benchmark, briefly soared above $75 a barrel on Monday after Israel leveled new nuclear allegations against Iran.

Bringing back sanctions on Iran could knock out as much as 1 million barrels per day of crude supply, dealing a blow to increasingly fragile energy markets.
