Trump & Kissinger

Not only is he a sloppy guy, Trump is a traitor:
So far Trump has shrugged off the political firestorm he created with Comey's dismissal as he met with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the Oval Office on Wednesday.

Not the first time they've met either. Somebody tell me why the guy who was going to make America great again is allowing a piece of traitorous trash in the Oval Office.

This is truly incredible: Less than a day after firing his FBI director in Nixonian fashion amid reports that federal authorities have issued subpoenas related to the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's potential connections to Russian sabotage of the 2016 election, Donald Trump just posed for pictures in the Oval Office with Henry Kissinger, who became Richard Nixon's national security adviser after collaborating in the North Vietnamese sabotage of the 1968 election.

Per a report from the White House press pool, Trump said Kissinger was present to discuss "Russia and various other matters."

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/kissinger-m ... al-office/
After being summoned to the Oval Office for what was expected to be a photo-op with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, members of the White House press corps were surprised to see former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was sitting with the president instead of Lavrov. Kissinger's visit to the White House fell one day after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for, "not doing a good job," amid an ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"It's an honor to have Henry Kissinger with us." Mr. Trump said. "We're right now talking about Russia and various other matters."

Is that some kind of symbol or something? The thing he does with his hands. Besides looking like he just crunched down on some totally bitter tasting bug, he always makes this weird looking shape with his hands. Is he like this when his puppetmasters make him do things he doesn't want to do or meet people he doesn't want to be around? For this photo, he's got to be thinking, "I"d rather be crushing a golf ball down at Mar-A-Lago instead of sitting here with this little gremlin of a killer."

The whole Trump administration has got to be such a ludicrous example of Gadiantonism. Wake up, sheeple.

If Trump is not a traitor let him fix the black-bagging of Americans. The EPA can go on the backburner for a while, Mr. Marmalade, while you restore justice to the Republic.

The Government Can Still Black Bag Any American
Travis Holte

The Senate passed the much ballyhooed Feinstein-Lee amendment last night, which supposedly partially nullifies the provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allowing for Americans to be kidnapped by the government and disappeared without any charge or due process. Senator Rand Paul put out a press release declaring victory. But as Congressman Justin Amash points out, the wording of the amendment effectively codifies tyranny:

The heart of the Feinstein amendment:

“An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, UNLESS AN ACT OF CONGRESS EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZES SUCH DETENTION.”

Well, that Act of Congress is the 2012 NDAA, which renders the rest of the Feinstein amendment meaningless.

I have some questions. Why are Americans who are traveling, working, living abroad left out of this legislation? Does one only have his rights when he’s within the sanctified borders of the U.S.? Why is it not being argued that ALL PEOPLE have the right to due process? Why are there libertarians celebrating this passage when rather than making us more free it really only further enshrines the idea that the State grants (and denies) us our rights?

If Trump is not a Gadianton, let him cut off the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia. He's a murderer and so is the House of Saud. Only warmongers would support a murderer like Trump.

Leaked UN Report: Saudi Coalition Responsible For Mass Child Deaths In Yemen

by Tyler Durden
Aug 18, 2017 12:14 PM

A leaked United Nations report finds that Saudi Arabia has massacred thousands of children in Yemen since the start of its air campaign in the impoverished country and now the Saudis are using their vast wealth and influence to suppress the document's findings in order to stay off of a UN blacklist identifying nations which violate child rights. On Wednesday Foreign Policy published a bombshell report, based on its possession of a leaked 41-page draft UN document, which found Saudi Arabia and its partner coalition allies in Yemen (among them the United States) of being guilty of horrific war crimes, including the bombing of dozens of schools, hospitals, and civilian infrastructure. Foreign Policy reports:

“The killing and maiming of children remained the most prevalent violation” of children’s rights in Yemen, according to the 41-page draft report obtained by Foreign Policy.

The chief author of the confidential draft report, Virginia Gamba, the U.N. chief’s special representative for children abused in war time, informed top U.N. officials Monday, that she intends to recommend the Saudi-led coalition be added to a list a countries and entities that kill and maim children, according to a well-placed source.
The UN report further identifies that air attacks "were the cause of over half of all child casualties, with at least 349 children killed and 333 children injured” during a designated time period recently studied. While it is unclear what specific window of time the UN assessed for these figures, the AP (also in possession of the leaked document) reports further of the secret U.N. findings that, "the U.N. verified a total of 1,953 youngsters killed and injured in Yemen in 2015 — a six-fold increase compared with 2014" - with the majority of these deaths being the result of Saudi and coalition air power. Also according to the AP:

It said nearly three-quarters of attacks on schools and hospitals — 38 of 52 — were also carried out by the coalition.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is reportedly bringing immense pressure to bear against the UN and the commission responsible for the report, with the United States also working behind the scenes to mitigate the public embarrassment and fallout that is sure to come should Saudi Arabia receive formal censure in the U.N.’s upcoming annual report of Children and Armed Conflict. As Foreign Policy describes:

The current standoff has its roots in the 2001 adoption of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1379, which mandated a senior U.N. official to produce a report each year documenting attacks against children in armed conflicts, including an annex that serves as a blacklist of governments, terrorists and armed groups that kill and maim kids.
In recent years Saudi Arabia has managed to use the UN to protect and enhance its image when it comes to questions of human rights and reform. Absurdly, the autocratic country which has Wahhabi Islam for its official state religion is currently serving a 3-year term on the UN Human Rights Council. It is further provides massive funding for UN humanitarian aid programs.

Last year Saudi Arabia was briefly added to the UN blacklist of state and non-state entities involved in the mass killing of children, but according to Foreign Policy:

In response, Saudi Arabia threatened to stage a walk-out by Arab countries from the U.N. and slash hundreds of millions in aid to the international body’s anti-poverty programs unless the coalition was removed from a U.N. rogues list. Then U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon reluctantly agreed to temporarily delist the coalition, citing concerns that the loss of Persian Gulf money could imperil the lives of millions of needy children from South Sudan to Yemen.

But he insisted that the coalition would be put back on the list unless a joint U.N.-Saudi review of the coalition’s conduct demonstrated the allegations were unjustified or that attacks on children stopped. But the Saudis were never put back on the list, and the attacks never stopped.

About 600 children were killed and 1,150 injured in Yemen between March 2016 and March 2017, according to UNICEF.
Saudi Arabia and other oil rich Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states have long managed to escape the scrutiny of media and international human rights bodies based on their deep pockets and security relationship with the West. Their collective oil, weapons, and infrastructure investment interdependency with Britain and the US have generally translated into Western governments, media, and human rights organizations towing the party line on the gulf sheikhdoms, content to (with a few sporadic exceptions) uncritically present them as some kind of “reform-minded” terror-fighting benevolent monarchies looking out for democratic interests and championing human rights.

The US itself has been an integral part of the coalition (also including Bahrain, Kuwait, UAE, Egypt, Sudan, and with the UK as a huge supplier of weapons) fighting Shia Houthi rebels, which overran the Yemen’s north in 2014. Saudi airstrikes on the impoverished country, which have killed many thousands of civilians and displaced tens of thousands, have involved the assistance of US intelligence and use of American military hardware. Cholera has recently made a comeback amidst the appalling war-time conditions, and civilian infrastructure such as hospitals have been bombed by the Saudis.

The war in Yemen has been drastically under-reported in US media, which tends to focus almost exclusively on human rights in places like Russia or Syria, where President Bashar al-Assad is consistently portrayed as little more than a homicidal maniac bent on massacring his own civilian population. Early in the war the prestigious Columbia Journalism Review produced a short study which attempted to explain, according to its title, Why almost no one’s covering the war in Yemen. Other analysts have since criticized the media and political establishment's tendency to exaggerate Iran’s presence in Yemen and further willingness to ignore or downplay the clear war crimes of US client regimes in the gulf: while Iran-aligned states and militias are framed as the region’s terrorizers, the Saudi-aligned coalition’s motives are constantly cast as praise-worthy and noble.

Saudi Arabia and its backers fear what they perceive as growing Iranian influence in the region and seek to defend at all costs Yemeni forces loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Embattled President Hadi famously gave a September 2016 speech before the UN in which he vowed to “extract Yemen from the claws of Iran” – for which he’s received international support. While Saudi bombs rained down on Yemen’s civilian population, the “international community” accused Iran of hindering peace.

But now the obvious and growing contradictions between what the UN claims to represent, and the human rights abuses of some of its most influential and wealthiest member states, is going increasingly public and impossible to deny. The UN now stands in violation of its own clear black and white resolutions on documenting human rights abuses as what appears to be its quid pro quo relationship with Saudi Arabia and the kingdom's Western backers continues to emerge through undeniable documentation.

He-e-e-e's ba-a-ack.

Hey, you Trumpsters, did you vote for this? You wanted Henry -- the War Criminal -- Kissinger to be the guy who comes to the White House and advises the Marmalade on China and North Korea? If y'all don't admit Trump is a huge mistake for America, you're just lying to yourselves. No man is so blind as he who will not see.

President Trump, Henry Kissinger Meet In The Oval Office — Again
Trump invited the former secretary of State and top Nixon aide to the White House on Tuesday.
By Cody Fenwick (Patch National Staff) - Updated Oct 10, 2017 12:27 pm ET

WASHINGTON, DC — Henry Kissinger, a former secretary of State and a national security adviser under Presidents Nixon and Ford, met with President Trump Tuesday in the Oval Office Tuesday, the second time the two have publicly convened since the inauguration.

Trump told reporters that Kissinger is a "man of immense, talent, experience and knowledge." He also reiterated that he has confidence in current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who called the president a "moron," according to a recent NBC News report. Trump said in a Forbes interview that he could beat Tillerson on an IQ test, but he refused to answer any questions about it when asked in the Oval Office.

Asked if he undercut Tillerson in a recent tweet when the president said the secretary's diplomatic efforts in North Korea were useless, Trump said, "I did not undercut anybody. I don't believe in undercutting anybody."

“Henry Kissinger has been a friend of mine," Trump said. "I’ve liked him. I’ve respected him. But we’ve been friends for a long time, long before my emergence into the world of politics, which has not been too long.” (For more information on this and other political stories, subscribe to the White House Patch to receive daily newsletters and breaking news alerts.)

Hillary Clinton, too, claimed Kissinger as a friend during the campaign.

Not only is Trump meeting with a war criminal, he's a lying narcissist as can be seen below in the words that come from his own mouth. Not the kind of guy that deserves to be President.

Trump huddles with Henry Kissinger amid tiff with Tillerson

President Trump met with former secretary of state Henry Kissinger in the Oval Office Tuesday, as Mr. Trump looks to decisions on the Iran nuclear deal and North Korea's nuclear capabilities.

Kissinger, who worked under former presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, has advised Mr. Trump on foreign policy matters since the campaign. His meeting with the president comes as Mr. Trump's relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in an awkward position. Mr. Tillerson was forced to hold a press conference last week after he reportedly called the president a "moron," and the president said if the "moron" comment is true, he and Tillerson will "have to compare IQ tests." With Kissinger seated next to him, Mr. Trump told reporters Tuesday his comments did not undercut his top diplomat.

"No I didn't undercut anybody," said Mr. Trump, scheduled to have lunch with Tillerson Tuesday. "I don't believe in undercutting people."

The president also addressed Sen. Bob Corker's remarks that Mr. Trump's reckless behavior risks a "World War III."

"We were on the wrong path before, all you have to do is take a look," Mr. Trump said. "If you look over the last 25 years, through numerous administrations, we were on the path to a very big problem. A problem like this world has never seen. We are on the right path right now. Believe me."

Mr. Trump praised Kissinger on Tuesday, noting his "immense talent."

"Henry Kissinger has been a friend of mine," the president said. "I've liked him. I've respected him. But we've been friends for a long time, long before my emergence into the world of politics, which has not been too long."

No doubt. We got what we deserved. Boastful, proud, arrogant, warmongering, belligerent, lascivious, pedantic, impulsive and the list describing Americans and The Marmalade goes on and on.
