FIVE Arab States Cut Diplomatic Ties With Qatar That House America’s Largest Military Base; And Donald Trump Takes Credit!

It is amazing that the Republican Congress and other Republican Politicians are still standing behind Donald Trump when in fact, everything Trump is doing is damaging to America and gives Vladimir Putin What he want. For the longest time Putin unsuccessfully tried to stop Qatar from Housing America’s Largest Military Base in the Middle East, but Putin has finally succeeded via his Puppet, Donald Trump.

 

Subsequent to Donald Trump’s Middle East Trip, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates [UAE] and Yemen not only broke Diplomatic Ties with Qatar, but also cut off Land, Air and Sea to and from Qatar.

 

[NYT] “ EgyptSaudi Arabia and three other Arab countries severed all ties with Qatar early Monday, in a renewal of a four-year effort to isolate it and in a sign of a new boldness after a visit to the region by President Trump.

 

In an abrupt and surprising move, the five Arab states not only suspended diplomatic relations, as they have in the past, but also cut off land, air and sea travel to and from Qatar. All but Egypt, which has many thousands of people working there, ordered their citizens to leave the country.

 

Qatar, like other monarchies in the Persian Gulf, is a close ally of Washington, and it hosts a major American military base that commands the United States-led air campaign against the Islamic State.

 

As such, the feud among regional allies threatens to stress the operations of the American-led coalition and complicate efforts in the region to confront Iran — but could also be a heavy blow to Tehran’s regional ambitions, if Qatar is forced to sever ties.

 

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson offered to broker the impasse on Monday in the hope of preserving the Trump administration’s efforts to create broad coalitions against Iran and terrorist groups in the Middle East.

 

“We certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together and address these differences,” Mr. Tillerson said.

 

The severing of all connections by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen created an immediate crisis for Qatar. Qatari diplomats were given 48 hours to leave their posts in Bahrain, while Qatari citizens were allotted two weeks to depart Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.”

Under Donald Trump And The Republican Controlled Congress America Started Moving On A Path Away From The Peace, Prosperity And Stability That Have Defined The Past 75 Years

[WAPO] “In economics, as in life, things often take longer to happen than you think they will and then happen faster than you thought they could. So it may turn out with the catastrophic international economic policies of President Trump. It is possible that last week will be remembered as a hinge in history — a moment when the United States and the world started moving on a path away from the peace, prosperity and stability that have defined the past 75 years.

 

For all that has gone wrong in the past three-quarters of a century, this period has witnessed more human betterment than any time. The rate of fatalities in war has steadily declined, while growing integration has driven global growth and improvement in life expectancy and living standards. Progress is too slow, and not well enough shared, but Americans have never lived so well. This has been driven by remarkable developments in human thought, especially in science and technology, and a relatively stable global order that has been underwritten by the United States.

 

 

Will these trends continue? Optimists have suggested that despite the revanchist and often anti-rationalist rhetoric of his campaign, Trump has in the international sphere surrounded himself with rational establishment advisers and has either retreated or been stymied by Congress on proposals such as launching trade wars and building walls.

 

Until last week, they had a reasonable argument. No longer. We may have our first post-rational president. Trump has rejected the view of modern science on global climate change, embraced economic forecasts and trade theories outside the range of reputable opinion, and relied on the idea of alternative facts rather than evidence-based truth.

 

 

Even for conservative statesmen such as Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Henry Kissinger, the idea of a community of nations has been a commonplace. Come now H.R McMaster, national security adviser, and Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, who have been held out as the president’s most rational, globally minded advisers.

 

They have taken to the Wall Street Journal to proclaim that “the world is not a global community” and advanced a theory of international relations not unlike the one that animated the British and French at Versailles at the end of World War I. On this view, the objective of international negotiation is not to establish a stable, peaceful system or to seek cooperation or to advance universal values through compromise, they wrote, but to strike better deals in “an arena where nations, nongovernmental organizations, and businesses compete for advantage.”

 

In service of this theory, the president in the past two weeks renounced any claim to U.S. moral leadership by failing to convincingly reaffirm traditional U.S. security commitments to NATO and abandoning participation in the Paris global climate agreement. The latter is probably our most consequential error since the Iraq War and may well be felt even longer.

There will be consequences to all of this, as there were to the pursuit of short-term advantage rather than systemic stability at Versailles. One does not need to subscribe to pessimistic versions of Graham Allison’s “Thucydides Trap” as it relates to worries about how China as a rising power may fill the vacuum left by the United States.

 

How, after the events of the past week, can U.S. adversaries and allies alike not follow German Chancellor Angela Merkel in concluding that the United States is now far less predictable and reliable? How can the responses be other than destabilizing?

 

It is essential that leaders in U.S. society signal clearly their disapproval of the course the administration is taking. History will judge poorly business leaders who retain positions on Trump administration advisory boards because they hope to be in a position to cut favorable deals. Elon Musk of Tesla and Robert Iger of Disney have taken the correct and principled stand by resigning their presidential appointments. More should follow.

 

What is to be done? The U.S. president is not America. The world will be watching to see whether Trump’s words and deeds represent an irrevocable turn in the nation’s approach to the world or a temporary aberration. The more that leading figures in U.S. society can signal their continuing commitment to reason, to common purpose with other nations, and to addressing global challenges, the more the damage can be contained. And, of course, Congress has a central role to play in preventing dangerous and destabilizing steps.”

Donald Trump Resizing U.S. Role As World Leader To The Size Of His Frigging Peanut Brain, Enabled By Republican Traitors

“Trump has been an awful disgusting, lying, corrupt thieving swindler all of his life and Trump has taken this vulgar crooked life into the White House. The only thing worse than Trump are the Top Republican Leaders and other Republicans in Congress that are enabling Trump to drag America into the same category as Nicaragua and Syria. Just Imagine, 194 Countries stands with the Paris Climate Accord and Donald Trump, backed up by many Republicans pulled America into a category of 3 countries rejecting perhaps the most significant World Agreement ever enacted.

 

It seems self evident that the only reason why Republicans are assisting Trump in dismantling America is because they are Neck Deep with Trump in the Russian Money Scandal. It is accurate to say that Republicans have chosen Corruption before Country!” [Sheriff Gerry Ali]

 

[Los Angeles Times] WASHINGTON — “President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the historic Paris climate accord is the most concrete sign yet that his “America first” approach to foreign policy has begun to disrupt the global order and ultimately could cede Washington’s dominant role on the world stage to China. For arguably the first time since Washington built a web of military, trade and diplomatic alliances from the ruins of World War II, and assumed sole superpower status after the Cold War, a president has thumbed his nose at virtually the entire world — allies and adversaries alike — to follow a go-it-alone strategy in international affairs.

 

Trump’s recent overseas trip left bruised feelings in Europe, especially after he failed to acknowledge the portion of the NATO charter that declares an attack on one member is an attack on all. It appeared a startling repudiation of staunch allies that invoked the charter to back U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the 2001 terrorist attacks. But his retreat on climate change — even if the commitments in the 194-nation Paris accord were voluntary and the U.S. already has cut emissions significantly thanks to shale gas technology and more efficient cars — clearly marks a new chapter in U.S. foreign policy, one likely to ripple around the world.” Open Los Angles Times Link For This Factual Amazing Article:

What Happened To America’s Democracy, The Constitution, Free And Fair Elections And Rule Of Law?

Posted in United States with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2017 by sheriffali

Donald Trump with the aid of Russia colluded with a Foreign Government and buttressed by Republicans Suppressing and Purging The Minority Vote, literally stole the 2016 Election and despite all of the evidence on Breaking News every day, Trump and his Appointees continue to violate the Law with no realistic consequences of Justice in the immediate “aftermath.”

 

Donald Trump illegalities as President are in “Plain-Sight.” Jeff Sessions lied about his connection with Russia during his confirmation hearing and Sessions is still the Attorney General. Michael Flynn, the disgraced former National Security Advisor ignores Subpoenas for essential documents and nothing is being done to hold Flynn in contempt. And yes, the list goes on, much too long for this blog.

 

Donald Trump, Ivana Trump, Eric Trump, Trump Jr., and Jared Kushner have and continue to create the biggest conflict of interests and apart from Democrats beating their Chests and the News reporting the conflicts, Trump and Family continue to march forward with their criminal activities.

 

What is most amazing are the Republicans that are always screaming about the Constitution and the Rule of Law, they are either defending or silent on all of Donald Trump and the Trump Administration, open and reckless behavior and violations.

 

Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are mixed up in a massive Russian money scandal and these two with such enormous power, they defend Donald Trump because both of them, Ryan and McConnell are as corrupt as Trump.

 

When is it going to end? Is America going to live up to its promise that “No One Is Above The Law? Even if Donald Trump only last a year or two, the damage that Trump is doing to America, aided by Republicans, it is very questionable as to whether or not America would again be the inspiration and vision of Democracy?

 

At the moment the only two winners are – Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin!

US Spies Heard Russian Intelligence Vowing To Target Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Bid. Outside Of Hillary’s Dedicated Supporters No One In The US Government Stood Up For Her! Why?

Hillary Clinton one of the most Educated, Experienced and Qualified person ever to seek the Office of The President of The United States was let down by the people who had the power to intervene; The United States Government. In addition we had Treasonous Donald Trump that colluded with Russia and the Fraudulent Republicans that Suppressed and Purged the Minority Vote, all in an effort to stop the First Female President.

 

For all of the advancements America has made in Medicine, Technology, Military, Economics and so many other great things, the United States is still buried in Misogyny. Far less advanced countries have elected Women Leaders but in America; “A Woman’s Place Is Still In The Home.”

 

Just examine the facts; 63% of White Men and 52% of White Women voted for Trump despite being fully cognizant that Donald Trump is a Racist, Fascist, Bigot, Con Man, Bankruptcy Fraud, Pathological Liar, Groper and certainly deranged that has no loyalty to America. Donald Trump has stood with Vladimir Putin and Russia against the 17 American Intelligence Agencies; Former Presidents; Secretaries of State and just about everything American.

 

Witnessing the shame and degradation and how Trump has demeaned America, I wonder if those Trump/GOP Voters and the American Media are having any regrets?

US Spies-The Hill Report

“U.S. spies reportedly heard a Russian military intelligence officer bragging about his organization planning to target Hillary Clinton in May 2016.

The officer told a colleague that GRU would cause havoc in America’s presidential election, Time reported Thursday.

The officer reportedly described the intelligence agency’s effort as retribution for what Russian President Vladimir Putin considered Clinton’s influence campaign against him while serving as secretary of State. 

Senior U.S. intelligence officials told Time that American spies transcribed the conversation and sent it to headquarters for analysis.

Time reported that an official document based on the raw intelligence was then circulated.

“We didn’t really understand the context of it until much later,” a senior U.S. intelligence official said. 

Putin publicly accused Clinton of conducting a major operation against Russia when protests erupted in more than 70 cities in 2011.

The Russian leader said that Clinton had sent “a signal” to demonstrators and that the State Department had actively worked to fuel the unrest.” Open Link for full article:

In the 2016 Election Hillary Clinton won the Popular Vote in excess of 2.9 Million Votes. Treasonous Trump Colluded With Vladimir Putin and Russia and at home, Fraudulent Republicans Suppressed and Purged Minority Voters.

 

Looking at the present Chaos at the White House and the Republican Controlled Congress, it is fair to say, Hillary Clinton didn’t lose, America and the World lost the most qualified person to ever have ran for the Presidency of the United States. We will soon find out the outcome of Donald Trump’s Treason and Fraud enabled by 95% of the “Most Dishonest Republican Party in American History.”

 

[NYT} “Hillary Clinton on Monday announced the launch of Onward Together, a new political group aimed at advancing progressive causes by harnessing grass-roots opposition to President Trump’s policies.

Mrs. Clinton, 69, who until recently had maintained a low profile after her loss in the presidential election in November, said on Twitter that her new group would encourage people to “get involved, organize, and even run for office.”

 

Mrs. Clinton, 69, who until recently had maintained a low profile after her loss in the presidential election in November, said on Twitter that her new group would encourage people to “get involved, organize, and even run for office.”

 

“More than ever, I believe citizen engagement is vital to our democracy,” she added. “I’m so inspired by everyone stepping up to organize and lead.”

 

Mrs. Clinton went on to praise the work of several grass-roots groups that have emerged as part of a broad liberal movement opposed to Mr. Trump and his policies. Onward Together will support those groups, she said, though she did not describe what form the assistance would take.

 

Onward Together is registered as a 501(c) (4) group, the Internal Revenue Service designation for so-called social welfare nonprofits, which are often cited for a rise in dark money in politics because of their ability to protect donor anonymity.” Open New York Times Link For The Full Article: https://nyti.ms/2qlSkNv

The Hillary Clinton Karma Tracker: Presidential Election Edition! Did you or someone you love work to interfere with Hillary Clinton’s rightful ascent to the White House in the 2016 presidential election? Good luck. [Huffington Post]

AA 1-101

Hillary Clinton spent her entire adult life dedicated to America, the American People and the World and for those that willfully wronged her, “Karma” doesn’t forget!

 

From Donald Trump, Mike Spence and other Previous Clinton-crossers who are now paying the price include former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Campaign manager Paul Manafort, InfoWars’ disgraced front-man Alex Jones, Bill O’Reilly, Rupert Murdoch, Steve Bannon, Jesse Watters, and Roger Ailes are all gentleman of the Right-Wing media who had epic breakdowns in 2017.

Sooner or later, they’ll learn. They always do:

Never cross a Clinton.

 

“There’s an old saying that comes out of Arkansas from the era of the young Governor William Jefferson Clinton and his radical liberal wife, Hillary Rodham: “Never cross the Clintons.

 

Since their emergence onto the political scene, the gossip rags and the dark recesses of the fake internet have been riddled with outlandish, unverified accounts of what happens when one dares to stand in their way.

 

Donald Trump’s first 100 days in the White House are officially a thing of the past and with nearly six months having passed since the 2016 presidential election, the unexpected defeat of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has remained the subject of intense postmortem speculation.

 

The on-going debate as to why she lost and the degree to which domestic (Comey, Sanders) and foreign (Russia) actors had an impact on the outcome have been given renewed life in recent weeks as Clinton has made a sort of public comeback, traversing the nation speaking to various women’s and civil rights organizations, even declaring herself a member of the “resistance.”

 

Donald Trump, however, is having a rougher go of it. He appears at times unconvinced of his own legitimacy, frequently regaling the press with histrionic outbursts about illegal Hillary voters, or the electoral map, or some other grandiose exercise in distraction.

 

Compare the respective weekends of the former rivals:

 

 Uproarious standing ovations and love from the crowd have become a typical night out for Clinton, even as certain members of the media threaten to silence her.

 

Meanwhile, an interesting phenomenon has been quietly taking place. As if forewarned by that prescient and mysterious saying out of Arkansas, participants to Clinton’s downfall are dropping like flies. Slowly, surely, methodically, they are paying the piper in glorious, ironic comeuppances that are the stuff of Shakespeare.

 

Was Hillary Clinton pre-ordained for the presidency after all? Is Hillary in fact “the Queen” and a deity whose wake is littered with the smote souls of those who dared cross her?

 

Behold, the fallen: Marine Le Pen”
