The art of no deal: Why can’t Washington reach agreements with...anyone?

The much-anticipated second summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un was cut short this week, with both leaders leaving Vietnam early before an expected signing ceremony. Sometimes you just have to walk away, Trump said.

The negotiations ultimately floundered when it came to the question of lifting US sanctions on North Korea. Kim wanted partial sanctions relief in return for its “realistic proposal”to halt nuclear and missile tests and dismantle a nuclear facility at Yongbyon, but Trump was not prepared to compromise.

Murray Hunter, an associate professor at the University Malaysia Perlis, told RT the result was a “catastrophic failure” given the “high expectations” the White House had put on the meeting. So, what does it really take to reach a deal with the United States?

House Democrats to Probe Trump Attacks on FBI, Courts, Media

House Democrats are opening an investigation into what they say are abuses of power by President Donald Trump through his attacks on the courts, the Justice Department, the FBI and the media, according to a House official familiar with the plans.

Topics for the inquiry will include Trump’s public humiliation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his attacks on actions by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court and his abuse of reporters as “dishonest” and “enemies of the people,” said the person, who asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the risk of stating the obvious, all of Trump's opinions are protected under the First Amendment.

Family Clears Joe Biden to Run for President in 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday his family voted in support of another run for president in 2020.

“From being pushed, prodded by my son Hunter, and my wife Jill, and my daughter, we just had a family meeting with all the grandkids too, and there is a consensus that they, the most important people in my life, want me to run,” Biden said.

Biden discussed a possible run for president during a four-hour conversation with historian Jon Meacham on Wednesday. He said that his children and grandchildren were not “naive” about facing public campaign scrutiny.

RUSSIA AND SYRIA TELL U.S. FORCES TO LEAVE SYRIA - JOINT STATEMENT

Russia and Syria issued a joint statement on Wednesday calling on US forces to leave Syria and to allow people inside a refugee camp in the southeast of the country to be evacuated by Russian and Syrian forces.

The statement, released by Russia's Ministry of Defence, said Russian and Syrian forces had prepared buses to relocate refugees at the camp in the Rubkan area and would guarantee them safe passage so they could start new lives."We also call on the United States, whose military units are on Syrian territory illegally, to leave the country," the joint statement read.

Ann Coulter: Hush Little Porn Star, Don’t Say a Word…

I gather I was supposed to gasp when Michael Cohen said during his testimony before Congress on Wednesday, “The president of the United States thus wrote a personal check for the payment of hush money as part of a criminal scheme to violate campaign finance laws.”
If that’s the best he’s got, Trump should demand we hold the election this coming Tuesday.

US on Brink of Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights

With Oil, Water and Iran as Targets, US on Brink of Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan Heights
Israel is now pushing for the U.S. to recognize its sovereignty over the Golan for fear of losing it completely, even though such recognition could result in an all-out war between Israel and Syria, as well as with Syrian allies such as Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

WASHINGTON — A new bill recently introduced in the Senate, along with its companion bill in the House, would result in the United States government recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over Syria’s Golan Heights, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967. The territory was later annexed in 1981, but the international community — including the United States — has not recognized Israel’s claim to the Syrian territory.

In addition, the bill would also promote the U.S. conducting “joint projects” with Israel in the Golan, including “industrial research and development.” This is sure to result in joint U.S.-Israeli efforts to extract the large oil reserves recently discovered in the Golan Heights>>>

Emboldened by Trump, Netanyahu Takes His Election Bid to Dangerous New Levels

The fact that Netanyahu would bring into his future coalition a group classified as ‘terrorist organization’’ by the FBI speaks volumes about the changing relationship between the US and Israel.
***
It is quite typical for Israeli politicians to carry out confrontational measures against Palestinians shortly before general elections are due. The nature of these measures is determined by the kind of political constituency that Israeli leaders aim to appease.

However, a war on Gaza, at least for now, is too risky an option for Netanyahu as it would take place too close to the April 9 elections date. Moreover, a botched Israeli attack on the Strip on November 11 caused Netanyahu a major embarrassment, forcing him to shelve the Gaza option for now.

That said, if the Israeli Prime Minister’s political standing grows too desperate in the coming weeks, a Gaza war may, once again, be placed on the table.

No agreement reached as Trump-Kim summit cut short
US and North Korea leaders leave their meeting in Vietnam's Hanoi early and cancel a planned signing ceremony.

Vietnam's Hanoi has hosted the second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The two leaders held a landmark summit in Singapore last year, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.

Final Steps Of The Multipolar Revolution: Containing The US In Europe

The United States has in the last three decades brought chaos and destruction to large parts of Europe, in spite of the common myth that the old continent has basked in the post-WWII peace of the American-led world order. This falsehood is fueled by European politicians devoted to the European Union and eager to justify and praise the European project. But history shows that the United States fueled or directed devastating wars on the European continent in Yugoslavia in the 1990s, with the conflict between Georgia and Ossetia at the beginning of the 1990s, with the war in Georgia in 2008, and in the coup in Ukraine in 2014, with the ensuing aggression against the Donbass.

Nuclear Weapons: Who Has What at a Glance

At the dawn of the nuclear age, the United States hoped to maintain a monopoly on its new weapon, but the secrets and the technology for making nuclear weapons soon spread. The United States conducted its first nuclear test explosion in July 1945 and dropped two atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. Just four years later, the Soviet Union conducted its first nuclear test explosion. The United Kingdom (1952), France (1960), and China (1964) followed. Seeking to prevent the nuclear weapon ranks from expanding further, the United States and other like-minded states negotiated the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968 and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in 1996.

Trump on brink of defeat on border emergency

President Donald Trump is on the verge of a bipartisan rejection of his emergency declaration at the border in what would be an embarrassing rebuke by a Congress opposed to his immigration agenda.

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) on Monday night said he would join Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, along with 47 Senate Democrats to block Trump’s attempts to secure billions for his border wall after lawmakers effectively stiffed him. Now just one more GOP senator’s support for a resolution to block Trump's bid would send the measure to Trump’s desk and force a veto.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attention morons in Congress: The US is starting a war in Venezuela (and according to Bolton, Nicaragua and Cuba). These wars are not on the other side of the planet, they are in what DC likes to call "Our backyard." Keeping the border open is an invitation to unconventional warfare conducted on our own soil.

Idiots.

Gold deal between United States and Daesh: Mission accomplished

Deir Ezzor, SANA – A few days after reports from local sources in the Syrian al-Jazeera area about the gold deal between the United States and Daesh (ISIS) terrorist organization were published, new information emerged to confirm these reports.

Information suggest that the US occupation forces in the Syrian al-Jazeera area made a deal with Daesh terrorists, by which Washington gets tens of tons of gold that the terror organization had stolen in exchange for providing safe passage for the terrorists and their leaders from the areas in Deir Ezzor where they are located.

Amir Abdollahian, in his Tuesday meeting with a group of American peace-seeking and anti-war activists, known as CODEPINK, in Tehran, the White House and some of its allies in the region for adopting wrong policies, adding, “The martyrdom and killing of more than half a million of Syrians and causing more than $400 billion material damage to Syria are the only results of one of these wrong policies of American politicians and their blind allies in the region.”

“The world is suffering from the wrong policies of the White House,” he lamented.

House Dems Turning On Mueller, Preparing To Launch ‘Plan B’ Against Trump

Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt media have been salivating over Mueller’s extra-constitutional fishing expedition as the one thing that will finally reverse the 2016 election, avenge Hillary and most importantly, provide “evidence” leading to Trump’s impeachment.

But a funny thing is now happening and that is there seems to be a good deal of downplaying of expectations that the report will have the smoking gun that will lead to Trump’s ouster and that the entire report may not even be publicly released – outside of the multitude of leaks that will inevitably occur.

In a sign that the Dems are losing faith in their savior, they are now moving beyond Mueller and planning to burn through millions of additional taxpayer dollars by clogging Congress with a boatload of their own investigations, tribunals and dog and pony shows that will have at least a passing resemblance to the infamous Moscow trials of the late 1930s.

US is still sounding the alarm on China, but their confrontation could be apocalyptic

China continues to be the focal point of US foreign policy and this will continue right throughout 2019. Despite the many reasons for the prolongation of this conflict, the overall implications of this war remain catastrophic.

It is fair to say that there is a lot going on in the world right now. For a while, Syria was the political hot potato that Western countries would use to show how much they supposedly cared about human rights. This is no longer the case when you have bloodthirsty Arab monarchies and Israel hatching a plan to “rehabilitate”Syria’s president, something even the US will no longer be able to justify as a foreign policy strategy. Hyping on and on about the Syrian conflict therefore no longer has the sex appeal it once had, and now we have other parts of the world closer to the US mainland which have grabbed the media’s fancy.

America’s Enemies, Who’s On the List?

For almost 2 decades, the US pursued a list of ‘enemy countries’ to confront, attack, weaken and overthrow.

This imperial quest to overthrow ‘enemy countries’ operated at various levels of intensity, depending on two considerations: the level of priority and the degree of vulnerability for a ‘regime change’ operation.

The criteria for determining an ‘enemy country’ and its place on the list of priority targets in the US quest for greater global dominance, as well as its vulnerability to a ‘successfully’ regime change will be the focus of this essay.

We will conclude by discussing the realistic perspectives of future imperial options.

If Truth Is Politicized, All Is Lost. Trump Grants Free Rein to the Crazed Neocons

As I write there is nothing on the BBC or CNN websites or anywhere else in the US print and TV media about the President of Russia’s clear statement. Trump has allowed the crazed neocons to raise the likelihood of nuclear Armageddon to near certainty, and it has gone unreported by the presstitutes.

Not only is there no evidence for Washington’s claim that Russia has violated the INF treaty, violating the treaty is not in Russia’s interests. Russian intermediate range missiles cannot reach the US. The purpose of the treaty is to keep Russia from targeting Europe by preventing US intermediate range missiles from being deployed in Europe. Washington tore up the INF treaty in order to put intermediate range missiles on Russia’s border, thus endangering Europe.

Trump, Xi In Talks To Meet At Mar-A-Lago Next Month

News of the summit, which follows reports earlier this month that the two sides were in the process of planning a sit-down between the two leaders, though Beijing had proposed the summit be held at the Chinese resort island of Hainan following Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. A meeting between the two leaders would be their first since a Dec. 1 dinner in Buenos Aires.

CNBC also reported that China has committed to buy $1.2 trillion in US goods (though a time frame for these purchases wasn't given, though it doesn't sound very realistic on its face).

The summit will offer the two leaders an opportunity to engage in marathon talks that will likely be needed to clinch a deal. Though the wide gulf between the two sides' positions suggests that an agreement is far from guaranteed.

Donald Trump Uses Poland to Divide Europe and Undermine EU’s Policy towards Iran

Political analyst Adriel Kasonta believes hosting the Warsaw summit would cause further deterioration of Poland’s relations with the European Union, which attempts to avoid the break with Tehran and works on a mechanism to bypass US sanctions against Iran.
Adriel Kasonta, in an interview with FNA, said that the right-wing ruling party in Poland instead of establishing an independent foreign policy, is strongly influenced by “the xenophobic warmongering Trump administration”.

Mr. Kasonta believes that “there are many Polish politicians that condemn the shameful behavior of the current government” in hosting an anti-Iran summit which according to the analyst does not serve the interests of Poland or that of the European Union.

America’s Burgeoning Imperial Presidency

The above could easily be taken from a new best seller about President Donald Trump in any modern Christian bookstore. (If you doubt that, read this report). But it’s not. The book is entitled Hitler’s Cross and was authored by Erwin Lutzer almost 25 years ago. The focus of the book was the way Germany’s pastors and churches blindly adored and slavishly obeyed Adolf Hitler.

Mind you, I am NOT comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. I AM, however, comparing the blind adoration and slavish submission that today’s evangelical pastors and churches exhibit toward Donald Trump to the blind adoration and slavish submission that Germany’s pastors and churches exhibited toward the German leader.

The spirit being exhibited by a majority of evangelical pastors and Christians toward President Trump is more than respect and appreciation: It is unabashed idolatry. Trump is a god for millions.

US House Launches Plan to Oust Trump With Testimony From Cohen – Lawmaker

Democrats in the US House of Representatives are beginning a campaign to oust President Donald Trump from office, with former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the committee’s senior Republican Congressman Jim Jordan charged on Thursday.

"Chairman [Elijah] Cummings first major hearing will feature Michael Cohen as phase one of the Democrats’ coordinated campaign to remove the president from office," Jordan said in a press release.

Cummings took over the Oversight Committee after Democrats gained control of the House in November’s mid-term elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Small technicality. The House can impeach, but only the Senate can remove.

Trump State Dep’t describes Palestine as part of Israel

Yesterday, Trump’s State Department characterized Palestine as part of Israel, seeming to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the entire West Bank.

Said Arikat, a reporter for the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds, asked State spokesperson Robert Palladino about US service to Palestinians once the U.S. consulate is merged with the embassy in South Jerusalem, reportedly next month.

Palladino assured Arikat that the U.S. will still be involved with “all of Israel.”

The news service reports:

President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law is operating on at least two tracks — the first is working with a small group studying specific ways to redistribute employment visas and the second is helping lead a series of “listening sessions” with about three dozen interest groups important to Trump to see if there is a position that Republicans can rally around before the 2020 elections.

The Republican senator then began listing off a series of terrible consequences that a US withdrawal would mean, including the return of Daesh, Turkish forces attacking Syria's Kurds, and Iran gaining an 'advantage' in the country.

Is America An International Rogue Nation?

In 2003, America (and its lap-dog UK) invaded and destroyed Iraq on the basis of lies to the effect that the U.S. (and UK) regime were certain that Saddam Hussein had and was developing weapons of mass destruction. These U.S. allegations were based on provable falsehoods when they were stated and published, but the regime’s ‘news’-media refused to publish and demonstrate (or “expose”) any of these lies. That’s how bad the regime was - it was virtually a total lock-down against truth, and for international conquest (in that case, of Iraq): it was mass-murder and destruction on the basis of sheer lies.

That’s today’s U.S. Government - that’s its reality, not its ‘pro-democracy’ and ‘human rights’ myth. (After all: its main ally is the Saud regime, which the U.S. regime is now helping to starve and kill by cholera perhaps millions of Houthis to death.)

Trump: Ziofascist Imperial Front Man

Trump fronts for imperial America; its military, industrial, security complex; Wall Street, and Israeli Zionist ideologues, fascist extremists, and religious fundamentalists.

His one-sided support for the Jewish state is more extreme than any of his predecessors. His so-called/yet to be released Israeli/Palestinian peace plan is so hostile to fundamental Palestinian rights, he’s too embarrassed to release what’s dead before arrival.

His hatemongering bombast and bravado Big Lies, wrapped in the American flag, the national symbol Mark Twain once called for replacing with a “skull and cross-bones,” rages against Iran, Venezuela, and other sovereign states.

His President’s Day address in Miami was a call to arms against peace, equity and justice, focusing on Venezuela, sounding Hitlerian – how he always sounds when raging against independent governments he wants forcefully toppled.

After the Trade War, a Real War With China?

Our sudden hostility to China reflects a consensus – at least within the Washington Beltway – that we need to wrestle China to the ground and pin it there. But what are the chances we can do that? What are the consequences of attempting it? Where are we now headed with China?

Realism is out of fashion in Washington even if it’s alive and well elsewhere in America. It should give us pause that our new enemy of choice is a very different, larger, and more dynamic country than any we have unbefriended before. China had a couple of bad centuries. But forty years ago, the Chinese Communist Party and government began to evolve what turned out to be a successful model of economic development that blended state capitalism with free enterprise. This unleashed the entrepreneurial talents of the Chinese people. The results have been staggering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is a very long read, but absolutely worth it, in terms of US/China/Taiwan relations, and how they might be bettered, or get completely nasty, if there is a war between the US and China over the future of Taiwan.

The verdict is in: Trump's a busted flush

If the analysis (by Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan among others) of the latest Bill that Trump signed is accurate then indeed we can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the Trump Revolution. Because that Bill appears to expressly forbid the building of The Wall, contains a de facto amnesty and opens the door to massive future immigration abuse through 'family reunion', 'legal immigration' and other such loopholes. Nothing has been done about the H1B visa scam which is devastating the employment prospects of American STEM graduates and changing forever the demographic profile of the country.

McCabe's Shocking Claims Prove The Bloodless Coup Rolls On

Disgraced former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe has provided clear evidence that in 2017 a small cabal of high-level officials inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) weighed whether to attempt to remove the duly-elected president of the United States. McCabe claims that he and others at the top of the FBI and DOJ held multiple discussions about invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to declare President Trump unfit for office and install the vice president in his place.

Is this proof that a rolling bloodless coup really existed within the government? McCabe himself previously provided false information to the DOJ, for which he was unceremoniously fired, rendering any statements he now makes while promoting his book highly suspect. But, given the underpinnings of the entire Russia collusion investigation and what we know now about its early steps, McCabe’s statements ring disturbingly true.

Bernie Sanders, 77, launches second presidential run with all-out assault against Trump as 'a pathological liar, a fraud, a racist, a sexist' and becomes voice of socialists in 2020 field

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders launched his second campaign for president on Tuesday with an all-out assault against Donald Trump, entering an already crowded field in the hope of improving on his second-place finish to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

'You know as well as I do that we are living in a pivotal and dangerous moment in American history,' the 77-year-old said in a more than 10-minute-long launch video.

'We are running against a president who is a pathological liar, a fraud, a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe, and someone who is undermining American democracy as he leads us in an authoritarian direction.'

Sanders called for 1 million Americans to help him turn Trump into a one-term president.

60 Minutes' Lara Logan slams the 'mostly liberal' media for its coverage of Trump which she calls a 'distortion' of real life, as the award-winning CBS journalist admits she is 'committing professional suicide'

Famed 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan has broken ranks with mainstream media, claiming news outlets are now 'mostly liberal' and have become ‘propagandists’ while covering President Trump.

The South African-born foreign affairs journalist said that most of the American press is biased against Trump because journalists are overwhelmingly Democrats.

‘You say the media is mostly liberal,’ Logan told Mike Ritland on his Mike Drop podcast.

‘I agree with you. It’s true. Why can I say that with certainty?

‘Well first of all I’ve been part of this for all my life, I’m 47 now and I’ve been a journalist since I was 17 and the media everywhere is mostly liberal not just in the U.S, but in this country 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats so that’s just a fact.’

Venezuela Pins Responsibility for Any Breach of Peace on Trump

Venezuela assigns the responsibility for any possible disturbance of peace in the country on the United States and its President Donald Trump, the Venezuelan government said in a statement.
"Venezuela demands the immediate cessation of all unilateral violent actions against it, which constitute the illegal and criminal blockade of the Venezuelan people, and at the same time declares to the international community that the US chauvinistic government and its president will be responsible for any violation of peace in Venezuela," the statement issued on Monday and published on Twitter noted, Sputnik reported.

According to the Venezuelan authorities, Trump is trying to give direct orders to Venezuelan military on rejecting the country's constitution.

Trump, Kim and the war that 'ended' six decades ago

Song Jin-won was in middle school when the Korean War broke out in 1950.
***
As United States President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un prepare to meet in Vietnam for high-stakes and complex nuclear negotiations, war veterans, including Song, hope the summit will also act as a big step towards officially ending the Korean War.

The two Koreas are technically still at war as the hostilities stopped in 1953 with a truce signed by the US, representing United Nations forces, and the militaries of North Korea and China. The armistice agreement - adhered to but not signed by South Korea, whose leaders at the time rejected the idea of a ceasefire that left the peninsula divided - fell short of a peace treaty that has governed the conflict ever since.

In April, Kim became the first North Korean leader to cross the border since the end of the fighting decades ago for talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.

How the US Coup in Venezuela Is Taking Root in Haiti and the Dominican Republic

For more than a decade Venezuela has aided the governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic through a preferential system known as Petrocaribe, and the people of those nations are not taking their governments’ support for the US coup in Venezuela lightly.<>
***
For more than a decade Venezuela has aided the governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic through a preferential system known as Petrocaribe, which provided subsidized crude oil prices to meet the countries critical energy demands. The Petrocaribe oil agreement, allowed for governments to pay only 60 percent of the oil shipments they purchase from Venezuela. The remaining 40 percent could be financed over 25 years at 1 percent interest, as long as oil prices stayed above $40 per barrel. This allowed for tremendous savings, and money that according to the agreement) was supposed to be used for socially beneficial purposes.

Countries such as Nicaragua, Jamaica, Cuba, and many islands in the eastern Caribbean have successfully utilized Petrocaribe funds and other Venezuelan support mechanisms, investing in vital infrastructure, education, healthcare, and have used the funding to avoid austerity deals with the IMF and other international financial institutions. Corrupt politicians in Hispaniola, though, whose regimes are closely aligned with Washington, have by contrast become well-known for robbing many of the funds meant for the social needs of their population.

Trump Rips Obama, Says Having a Dog In the White House Would Feel “Phony”

Donald Trump is the first president not to have a pet dog in the White House in well over a century.

When the president held a rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night, he talked about why.

“I wouldn’t mind having one, honestly, but I don’t have any time,” Trump said. “How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn? Would that be right? It doesn’t.”

Will Yemen Be Trump’s First Veto?

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives issued a stinging rebuke of the White House’s holding pattern in support of the Saudi coalition in Yemen. The vote was the culmination of multiple years of efforts by realists on Capitol Hill and their allies. House Joint Resolution 37 demands the removal U.S. Armed Forces from hostilities in or affecting Yemen within a month unless: Congress authorizes a later date, or issues a declaration of war, or specifically authorizes military force. The vote was not close: 248-177.

“The vote today is a step toward more sensible U.S. policy in Yemen and the Middle East, a welcome admonishment of Saudi Arabia, and an overdue assertion of nearly-dormant war powers. In each of those senses, though, more is needed,” says Benjamin H. Friedman of Defense Priorities.

US mobilizes allies to blame Russia for dismantling INF Treaty - Lavrov

Washington takes unscrupulous steps mobilizing its allies to put the blame for dismantling the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) on Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters in Munich on Saturday.

"Back in October, US officials told us that President [Donald] Trump announced a withdrawal from the treaty. It is not an invitation for dialogue but a final decision," Lavrov said.

"Afterwards, it has not been very scrupulous to mobilize allies in order to blame us for dismantling this crucial agreement," he said.

The testimony was delivered last fall to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Fox News has confirmed portions of the transcript. It provides additional insight into discussions that have returned to the spotlight in Washington as fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe revisits the matter during interviews promoting his forthcoming book. -Fox News

TRUMP Calls for Investigation into Rigged, Liberal Channels That Constantly Spew Hatred at Republicans

Last night, “Saturday Night Live” opened with another anti-Trump skit with Alec Baldwin impersonating Trump’s Rose Garden presser where he announced he was declaring a national emergency to secure funding for the southern border.

Alec Baldwin called the national emergency “fake” and mocked the drug and opioid crisis gripping the nation due to porous borders.

“You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right? I have to because I want to. It’s really simple. We have a problem. Drugs are coming into this country through no wall,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin continued: “Wall works, wall makes safe. You don’t have to be smart to understand that, in fact it’s even easier to understand if you’re not that smart.”
