On Friday, the Trump Administration showed in one more way why it is 180 degrees from the Obama Administration terms if foreign policy.
As peaceful protests against the Iranian theocratic and despotic regime occurred in Iran, the State Department issued a statement supporting the protesters and bluntly stating that it “strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters.”
The statement also took no protesters regarding the effect of the theocratic regime on Iran, asserting…Continue viewing...
For those who are unfamiliar with this gentleman, this is Dan Bogino – a former Secret Service agent that was on protection duty for Obama.
We are presuming it was not the best years of his career but it was very educational and motivational for him as he has been sharing a lot with us since then.
He has some insight into the recent Mueller and other events that may look unrelated… yet are…Continue viewing...
Still No Evidence of Trump Campaign Collusion With the Russians
The 218-year-old Logan Act is receiving heightened attention lately as a possible club to use in bringing down the Trump administration.
This archaic criminal statute prohibits U.S. citizens from communicating with any foreign government or its officers, in the absence of authorization by the U.S. government, “with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States.”
In a New York Times op-ed article by two University of Chicago Law School professors, Daniel Hemel and Eric Posner, entitled “Why the Trump Team Should Fear the Logan Act,” the professors argue that Michael Flynn’s communications in December 2016 with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the transition period leading up to the inauguration of President Trump violates the Logan Act.
Moreover, they claim that Mr. Flynn’s filings as part of his guilty plea to one count of making materially false statements to the FBI “further reveal that a ‘very senior member’ of the Trump transition team almost certainly violated the Logan Act, too” by directing Mr. Flynn to convey certain messages to the Russian ambassador.Continue viewing...
It endangers global security and bolsters a brutal theocratic regime.
President Trump will make some important decisions this month that could not only end the controversial 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran but also convey America’s support for Iranian protesters and hasten the overthrow of Iran’s ruling mullahs.
By January 12, Mr. Trump must decide whether to renew a waiver of sanctions lifted by the Iran deal — i.e., the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.
The law requires him to make such a determination every 120 days.Continue viewing...
The fractured relationship between President Trump and his former chief strategist Stephen Bannon took center stage on Thursday as questions mounted about Bannon’s political future.
The heaviest blow for Bannon came as one of his most important financial backers, Rebekah Mercer, issued a rare public rebuke of the strategist in a statement first reported by the Washington Post on Thursday afternoon.
Republican politicians who have long disliked Bannon — including New York Congressman Peter King and, reportedly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — have been gratified by his apparent demise.Continue viewing...
President Trump’s end year remarks to the New York Times acerbically summed up his relationship with the media.
“I’m going to win another four years… because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there.”
The answering outburst of rage and contempt from the media burned all the hotter because the statement was not only intentionally provocative; it was also true.
The media has never been able to quit Trump.Continue viewing...
