EPA reauthorizes use of ‘cyanide bombs’ to kill wild animals

The Trump administration has reauthorized the use of controversial traps dubbed “cyanide bombs” to kill coyotes, foxes and other animals across the US.

“Cyanide traps can’t be used safely by anyone, anywhere,” said Collette Adkins, carnivore conservation director at the Center for Biological Diversity.

In 2017, a child was temporarily blinded and three pet dogs killed in two incidents involving the use of M-44s in Idaho and Wyoming, the BBC reported.

Canyon Mansfield’s family successfully sued the US government for $150,000 last year. One of the devices had been placed near their property in Pocatello, Idaho, and his dog triggered the device, The Guardian reported.

“China wants to do something on trade, but I’m not ready to do anything yet,” President Trump said, adding that the American taxpayer is “not paying for” the tariffs currently imposed on trade with the country.

Frank Figliuzzi, a top FBI official during Obama’s first term and current NBC News analyst, claims that President Trump’s lowering of flags to half-staff to honor victims of the El Paso and Dayton shootings is a secret shoutout to White Supremacists and Nazis.

Trump Imposes Total Economic Embargo On Venezuela

Late Monday President Trump signed an executive order imposing a full economic embargo against Venezuela after a week ago the White House began signaling it could seek to "quarantine" and fully "blockade" the Maduro regime if the president doesn't immediately hand over power of his own accord.

The executive order freezes all government assets in the United States and prohibits all transactions by any Venezuelan officials, in what constitutes the first major expansion of sanctions targeting a nation in the western hemisphere in over three decades.

An unnamed senior administration official says that the Trump Administration is seriously considering imposing a naval blockade on Venezuela, saying President Maduro has a “short window” to voluntarily resign before the US makes such a move.

Trump had recently told reporters he was considering a naval blockade or full “quarantine” of Venezuela as the latest effort to try to impose regime change, something the US announced it had recognized month ago but which so far hasn’t happened.

President Maduro denounced the comments, and called on his ambassador to complain to the UN Security Council about the “illegal” US threat to blockade the Venezuelan coastline. Maduro added it was “clearly illegal.”

A $32mn nothingburger: Justice Dept bill comes due for Russiagate costs

Nearly two years of fruitlessly hunting for collusion between US President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government cost the country $31.7 million, the Justice Department has revealed.

The cost of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month probe was released in a Justice Department accounting report on Friday. While the last six months of the investigation, which concluded in May with Mueller’s resignation, cost “only” $6.5 million as he began sending prosecutors home and writing up the 448-page report, turning the full force of the country’s investigative apparatus against a president and his campaign isn’t cheap. From May 2017 to September 2018, the special counsel’s office spent $25 million digging for Russian infiltrators in the White House.

US President Donald Trump pardoned Israeli-born Ronen Nahmani on Monday, who had served four years of a 20-year sentence for conspiracy to distribute synthetic drugs he bought from suppliers in China.

[...] "Today, President Donald J. Trump commuted the prison sentence of Ronen Nahmani, an action strongly supported by many notable leaders from across the political spectrum, like representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Mark Meadows," according to a White House statement.

"Mr. Nahmani is a non-violent, first-time offender with no criminal history. He has five young children at home and his wife is suffering from terminal cancer. These extenuating circumstances underscore the urgency of his request for clemency."

Slavoj Zizek – Truth is many Democrat ‘moderates’ prefer Trump to Sanders in 2020 White House race

Many so-called Democrat ‘moderates’ would prefer Donald Trump to retain the US Presidency than for Bernie Sanders, or another genuine leftist, to defeat him.

In this sense they are mirror-images of establishment Republicans, such as George W Bush and Colin Powell, who publicly expressed support for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 contest.

In the course of this week’s heated Democratic Party primary debate, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper warned that “you might as well FedEx the election to Donald Trump” if the party adopts radical platforms. Such as Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’ plan, the Green New Deal and other game-changing initiatives.

US seeks to deny Russia imports & intl loans with new round of Skripal-inspired sanctions

The US has announced a second round of financial sanctions on Moscow based on claims that Russian intelligence operatives attempted to assassinate former double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia last year in London using the banned and extremely deadly poison Novichok.

The sanctions prohibit US banks from some types of participation in the Russian sovereign debt market and impose export licensing restrictions on goods controlled by the Department of Commerce. The US will also oppose loans and assistance to Russia by international financial institutions.

Moscow doubts the sanctions have anything to do with the Skripal affair or bilateral ties at all, instead suggesting they are political theater stemming from the 2020 presidential campaign and an effort to pander to incoming British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Unraveling of US Empire

The results of centuries of U.S. empire, which began with Manifest Destiny that crossed the North American continent and grew into a global empire, are coming home to roost in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

For far too long, the rules have been written for Puerto Ricans, not by them. The island has been a colony of the US for more than 100 years and was a colony of Spain before that. It is time to decolonize.

Hawaiian Independence Movement Grows

Native Hawaiians and allies are camped at the base of Mauna Kea to protect the summit of the mountain from the construction of a proposed Thirty Meter Telescope, a massive 18-story, five-acre telescope complex being built on sacred land. Mauna Kea, measured from its base, is the tallest mountain in the world and represents the birthplace of Hawaii island and the Hawaiian people. The summit is associated with a number of important gods and goddesses and is the site of numerous burial places and altars.

Trump says he wants to ‘rein in’ US intelligence agencies

Donald Trump has said he wants to “rein in” US intelligence agencies, fuelling fears he wants the nation’s next spy chief to be someone loyal to him.

Mr Coats, a long-time fixture of the Republican intelligence establishment, has repeatedly clashed with the president during his two-year-long tenure.

Trump’s Message to U.S. Intelligence Officials: Be Loyal or Leave

This past Wednesday, during Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Representative John Ratcliffe, a Republican from Texas who was previously a federal prosecutor, accused the former special counsel of illegally smearing President Trump. Ratcliffe demanded to know why Mueller had stated in Volume II of his report—which investigated whether the President had obstructed justice—that, “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” His voice rising, Ratcliffe said that the sentence “was not authorized under the law to be written” and violated a “bedrock principle of our justice system.” He urged Americans to ignore the “Democrats and socialists on the other side of the aisle” who cited it. Fact checkers found Ratcliffe’s claims to be false, but he ended his appearance with a dramatic flourish. “I agree with the chairman this morning when he said Donald Trump is not above the law.

Zionist Puppet Trump Gives Israel a Free Hand in Genocide of Palestinian People

With all criticism toward Israel silenced in the West, Israel now enjoys complete impunity to make life a hell on earth for the Palestinians.
The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House two-and-a-half years ago has emboldened Israel as never before, leaving it free to unleash new waves of brutality in the occupied territories.

While engaged in the process of “saving” Israel, Donald Trump is going to destroy the United States.

Israel is a demonic evil entity. It has Amerika by the throat. Israel is in the process of destroying the United States because it is a parasite, a vampire. Trump is their man. Trump’s job is to serve Israel.

All the ‘Q’ talk about Trump playing 4d chess is utter garbage. That is the psyop they are using to fool the goyim into believing that Trump is somehow working for the American voter. He is not, he is working for Israel.

Germany won't take part in US Strait of Hormuz initiative - FM

Germany will refuse to take part in a US-led maritime mission in the Strait of Hormuz, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas announced. Maas said that there “cannot be a military solution” to the current crisis in the Persian Gulf.

Speaking in Warsaw, Poland, on Wednesday, Maas said that Germany will turn down Washington’s request, which was revealed by the US Embassy in Berlin on Tuesday. The joint US, British, and French operation is aimed at protecting sea traffic in the Strait of Hormuz, and combatting so-called “Iranian aggression.”

The mission was conceived following Iran’s seizure of the British-flagged Stena Impero oil tanker earlier this month, itself widely considered a tit-for-tat response to Britain’s seizure of an Iranian tanker off the coast of Gibraltar several weeks earlier.

Government By Blackmail: Jeffrey Epstein,Trump's Mentor Roy Cohn and The Dark Secrets of The Reagan Era

July 25th, 2019

By Whitney Webb Whitney Webb
Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire who now sits in jail on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors, has continued to draw media scrutiny in the weeks after his arrest on July 6. Part of the reason for this continued media interest is related to Epstein’s alleged relationship to the intelligence services and new information about the true extent of the sexual blackmail operation Epstein is believed to have run for decades.

As MintPress reported last week, Epstein was able to run this sordid operation for so long precisely because his was only the latest incarnation of a much older, more extensive operation that began in the 1950s and perhaps even earlier.

"Meet Winter, Arabella's birthday dream come true and the newest member of the Kushner family!" Trump tweeted along with a heart-eyed emoji and a picture of a blue-eyed white dog.

Some Twitter users interpreted Trump's present to her eight-year-old daughter Arabella Rose Kushner as a sign the senior White House adviser prefers whiteness, like her father President Donald Trump has been accused of preferring. Recently, she has also been criticized for remaining largely silent on the president's controversial immigration policies.

Revealed: Comey’s Spy in White House Stole Classified Material — Is Now Working for CNN

As of yesterday we now know that corrupt former FBI Director James Comey had an agent inside the White House reporting back to the FBI about Trump and his aides. It’s clear that Comey’s spy, Anthony Ferrante, was feeding information that he stole back to Comey. That is what spies do. But what is not yet clear is whether Ferrante, who now works for CNN, attempted to frame the President as well, from within the White House.

Judge halts Democrats' subpoenas of Trump Org docs in emoluments case

A federal judge Friday paused congressional Democrats' subpoenas of Trump Organization financial records, 10 days before the records were due in a lawsuit over whether President Donald Trump is violating the Constitution.

The delay is a win for Trump, even if temporary. He's attempting -- and so far has succeeded -- to hold off multiple subpoenas from the Democrats that could divulge secrets about his company and assets.

Paul Craig Roberts: Mueller Should Be Arrested For Conspiracy To Overthrow POTUS

The Mueller report, which had no choice as there was no evidence, but to clear Donald Trump of conspiring with Russian President Putin to steal the last US presidential election from Hillary Clinton, nevertheless managed to keep an aspect of the manufactured hoax known as “Russiagate” alive by indicting some Russian intelligence officers and a Russian Internet clickbait operation for attempting to discredit Hillary with Internet postings.

Trump says Squad is 'destroying the Democrat Party'

President Trump called out the four freshman congresswomen known as "The Squad," claiming that not only are they bad for America as a whole, they are damaging their own party.

The criticism comes amid a two-fronted political battle that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have been engaged in of late; one against Trump, and another against the Democratic establishment, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country," Trump tweeted Sunday morning. "They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!"

Trump Is Back Under Bolton’s Thumb

President Trump might be his own man, but not when it comes to John Bolton and Israel. Trump is their man and is again being manipulated into starting a fisticuffs with Iran.

Someone in Washington, most likely Ziocon warmonger Bolton, got the UK to commit an act of piracy on the high seas and seize an Iranian oil tanker, Grace 1, on the grounds that Iran intended to deliver the oil to Syria in violation of US sanctions.

Iran’s leader, Khamenei, denounced Washington’s British stooge for “maritime banditry” and said there would be consequences. Today there were. Iran detained two British tankers.

This is what Bolton and Netanyahu wanted. They used it to wind up Trump’s fulminations against Iran. The trouble that the idiot British started with Iran is no concern of ours, but Trump’s threats are nevertheless issuing at a rapid pace.

Pentagon Confirms Removing Turkey From F-35 Fighter Jet Program

Pentagon officials confirmed on Wednesday that Turkey has been removed from the F-35 fighter jet program, despite President Trump complaining about how “unfair” it was to America to have to do so just the day before.

US law established a mechanism for punishing other nations who buy weapons from Russia, and threatened Turkey time and against for buying the S-400. Turkey began taking delivery of the S-400, and that set the US move to ban them from accessing the F-35 jets.

Trump didn’t like this, because the F-35 isn’t exactly flying off the shelves and Turkey was a potential customer. Undersecretary of Defense Ellen Lord argued that all the nations partnered on the F-35 are “aligned in this decision to suspend Turkey.”

Impeachment caucus forms: Rep’s rogue resolution reveals scores of Dems gunning for Trump

A doomed attempt to bring articles of impeachment against President Trump failed miserably Wednesday night as expected, but the roll call put scores of Democrats on record in support of at least keeping the effort alive -- revealing that bloc has grown substantially in recent months.

Even as Democratic leaders have pushed back against impeachment proceedings at this stage, more and more prominent members -- including the freshman firebrands who were the targets of Trump's Twitter ire over the weekend -- have supported the drive. Wednesday’s resolution was brought by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, who repeatedly has sought to impeach Trump.

"The president has committed an impeachable offense," Green said on the House floor Wednesday. "Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him."

House To Vote On Impeachment Today

Impeachment has been discussed by Democrats for a long time but this is the first time they have decided to vote on it, NBC reported.

It’s unclear whether the House will vote to send the resolution to committee, to table it — effectively killing the measure — or vote to proceed forward with it.

In addition, the House will vote Wednesday to hold U.S. Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt of Congress for withholding information about the administration’s failed bid to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

In calling Ilhan Omar a ‘terrorist,’ Trump models an Israeli tactic against Palestinian dissent

President Trump’s racist comments regarding Congresswomen of color Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying that they should “go back” to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”, are the news the world over.

They are so virulently racist, that the House passed a resolution yesterday condemning him. The Democrats were unanimous in the condemnation, and only four Republicans joined them.

Trump is not backing down – quite the contrary. He suggested that the condemnation is a conspiracy, tweeting:

Analysts: Trump’s use of Israel accelerating decline of bipartisan support

US President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on Democratic members of Congress, which included allegations about their views on Israel, is a dangerous development for Israel, reported analysts.

“Trump’s use of Israel in his Monday morning attack will cause the country more damage than good”, declared Yaakov Katz, Editor-in-Chief of The Jerusalem Post.

It “will further undermine what Israel has long prided itself on having accomplished: keeping Israel an issue that receives bipartisan support in the halls of Congress”, Katz continued.

The Heirs of MAGA—Who Will Lead Historic American Nation After Trump?

Overall, President Donald Trump has disappointed patriots but he’s still set in motion a Republican transformation that can’t be stopped. The top concerns for GOP voters now: building the wall and limiting legal and illegal immigration. Serious Republican candidates for office now have to talk about immigration to maintain grassroots credibility—or else, like Justin Amash, quit before they are fired

Rather than being a revolutionary candidate, President Trump may have just been a transitional one, between the old conservative Republicans of the past and the New National Conservatism (nothing to do with the neutered version now frantically pedaled by Yoram Hazony et al) of the future. New leaders are emerging to take up the MAGA mantle—and old leaders are adapting.

TRUMP MAY APPOINT FRINGE NEOCON TO HEAD INTELLIGENCE

It keeps getting worse. The neocons have burrowed termite-deep inside the Trump administration and rumor has it the president will add yet another one to an important cabinet position.

If there is any substance to the latest rumors, DNI Dan Coats will be replaced by Fred Fleitz, former NSC executive secretary, CIA analyst, Trump Chief of Staff, Bolton enforcer, and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.

This last one should send up a huge red flag. CSP is a project launched by Frank Gaffney Jr., an Islamophobe way out on the neocon fringe. During the Trump presidential campaign, I wrote a short ebook (Donald Trump and the War on Islam) about Gaffney, among other neocons and rabid Israel-firsters exacting a corrosive influence on the Trump campaign.

Big Pharma’s stock values PLUMMET after President Trump announces executive order on drug prices

On July 5, the day after Independence Day, President Trump announced that in lieu of any formidable action by Congress, his administration is planning to issue an executive order that will force drug companies to sell their drugs here in the United States for the same amount that they do in the lowest paying foreign nations.

In other words, American patients will pay no more than what patients do in countries where drug prices are sold for the cheapest price. This will ensure that Big Pharma doesn’t get away with price-gouging First World countries for life-saving medications when those same medications are being sold for far less in the Third World.

Trump 'is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism': Sir Kim Darroch's cables describe how Boris failed to save Iran deal, claim the President was against it for 'personality reasons' and suggest splits among White House advisors

Standing in front of Corinthian columns at the US Department of State, Boris Johnson vigorously pumped the hand of his American counterpart Mike Pompeo and gave a thumbs-up to reporters.

But as the Foreign Secretary turned on his heels after the photocall, he knew that his hastily arranged diplomatic mission to Washington was on the brink of failure.

It was May 7, 2018, and Mr Johnson had been hurriedly dispatched to make a last-ditch plea to President Donald Trump not to abandon a nuclear deal with Iran, regarded by many experts as critical to prevent the regime from building an atomic bomb.

During a frantic 26 hours of meetings, Mr Johnson met all the key 'Trump Whisperers' – those advisers with the ear of America's unpredictable leader. It became clear, however, that despite the 'special relationship' between Britain and the US, Mr Johnson was not going to change the President's mind.

Trump Might Fire Ross Over Citizenship Question Embarrassment

After more than a year of rumors about the commerce secretary's imminent departure, it seems as if President Trump has finally had enough of the Commerce Secretary whom Trump once claimed was "past his prime."

NBC News reports that Trrump has told his aides that he's considering firing Ross after the Commerce Department failed to convince the Supreme Court that the citizenship question should be added to the 2020 census. SCOTUS rejected the government's argument because, or so it claimed, the Commerce Department's lawyer didn't adequately explain why the question was essential, and urged Ross to come back with a better reason.

But Ross has survived previous rumors of his imminent firing, and with Labor Secretary Alex Acosta having only just departed over his role in striking the 'sweetheart' deal for Jeffrey Epstein, the Trump administration has nearly two dozen acting secretaries or deputies that some have sarcastically labeled a currency crisis.

House Passes $733 Billion NDAA to Veto Threat, Uncertain Future

In a 220-197 vote early Friday afternoon, the House of Representatives passed the $733 billion 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), setting the stage for multiple battles, including a party-line fight over reconciling House and Senate versions.

Senate leaders blocked a lot of similar amendments in their version of the NDAA, many of them seen as controversial to the Trump Administration. The House version included a lot of amendments, preemptively defunding an attack on Iran, defunding the Yemen War, and moving to repeal both the 2001 and 2002 AUMFs.

The tough language trying to see Congress reclaim its authority over wars is driving President Trump to threaten a veto if he ends up faced with the House version as the final bill. The House seems determined to stand up for at least some of these amendments.

Trump forces 'staffing up' to end GOP losing streak in Minnesota

Days after President Donald Trump officially announced his 2020 re-election bid, Minnesota Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan attended a picnic on the White House lawn. As they posed for a selfie, the state GOP leader thanked the president for making three visits to the state since taking office.

“I told him, ‘We appreciate you coming and we hope to see you here at least as many times before the election next year,’?” Carnahan said.

The president’s response: “I will be there.”

Minnesotans have picked the Democratic nominee for the White House in every election since 1972. Trump, who lost the state by just 1.5 percentage points in 2016, believes he can end that streak. With 15 months to go until the general election, the GOP is doubling down on efforts to turn Minnesota red, putting national campaign staff on the ground and hosting a series of training sessions to mobilize Republican voters.

Trump tells progressive freshman congresswomen to 'go back' to their 'broken and crime infested' countries

President Donald Trump tweeted about the "'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen" Sunday morning, asking them to "go back" to their "corrupt" and "broken and crime infested" countries before "telling the people of the United States [...] how our government is to be run."

Trump also tweeted that he was "sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements," effectively siding with Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the infighting that has escalated between her and the four freshman congresswomen nicknamed the "Squad."

Squad members include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Of the four progressive freshmen congresswomen, only Omar was born outside the US, in Mogadishu, Somalia.

One Supreme Court Justice Announced Their Retirement Plans With These 4 Words

Ginsberg will never willingly allow President Trump to appoint her replacement and radically shift the court to the right.

Instead, some pundits believe the 70-year-old conservative champion Clarence Thomas might be the next Justice to retire.

Some conservatives think Thomas should retire while Trump is President and the Republicans control the Senate in order to allow Trump to appoint a much younger conservative who could serve for 30 or 40 more years.

Did Trump just toss House Dems a lifeline?

One of the most important rules in partisan politics is this: when your opponents are fighting amongst themselves, stay out of it. House Democrats spent the last few days in a civil war over whether Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Black Caucus are racists or whether the “Freshman Squad” are idiots.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime apotheosis of that axiom, a singular and historic opportunity to let the party of identity politics shred itself to pieces over it.

That is, unless a Republican interrupted it and gives both sides a new target. Enter Donald Trump:

Secret Service stop full-on BRAWL in the White House Rose Garden after Trump's social media summit: Conservative activist storms across lawn to confront 'punk' CNN analyst who invited him 'outside' and said 'get a job' in front of a chanting crowd

Tempers flared in the Rose Garden of the White House on Thursday as an outspoken Playboy magazine writer nearly came to blows with conservative activist and former Donald Trump aide Sebastian Gorka.

The encounter happened in full view of more than 100 right-wing social media stars who were at the White House for a 'summit' focused on grievances against Twitter and Facebook.

A Secret Service agent ultimately intervened to separate the two men.

Playboy's White House correspondent Brian Karem, who doubles as a CNN political analyst, started the melee by telling the conservatives that they were 'a group of people that are eager for demonic possession.'

'You are a journalist, right?' Gorka shouted from across the lawn.
