President of The United States Donald J. Trump 'Vindicated' by Comey Testimony Reader 06/11/2017 (Sun) 11:02:10 Id: 091eba [Preview] No. 957 [Reply]

Trump claims “vindication” after Comey’s testimony as his lawyer plans to file complaint about leaked memo

>President Donald J. Trump called the former FBI director, James Comey, a “leaker” who completely vindicated him during Thursday’s much-anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

>“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication … and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” Trump tweeted early Friday morning.

>To lend credibility to his claim, Trump also retweeted a tweet from noted liberal constitutional law professor Alan Dershowitz, who agreed that nothing Comey said during his public testimony indicated that Trump may be guilty of obstructing justice by asking the former FBI director to forego his agency’s investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump’s first national security advisor.

Rothschild Puppet French President Emmanuel Macron Fights Against Trump Over Paris Accords Reader 06/11/2017 (Sun) 10:57:34 Id: 875428 [Preview] No. 956 [Reply]
>The new leader of France won't let go of President Trump's decision to pull out of the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

>So far, the nation has openly trolled the president over the issue and French President Emmanuel Macron joined other world leaders to "speed up" efforts to fight climate change, in spite of Trump. Now, Macron's throwing down the gauntlet by pushing Americans, and others across the world, to move to France to fight global warming. And he's doing it with Trumpian vigor.

Opioids Killed More Americans Last Year Alone Than The Entire Vietnam War Reader 06/10/2017 (Sat) 20:52:36 Id: 47ac43 [Preview] No. 953 [Reply]

Opioid Overdoses Killed More Last Year Than The Entire Vietnam War

>America has been embroiled in what's considered a Heroin and Opioid epidemic of catastrophic proportions. The cause and effect of the opioid nightmare is taking lives on a scale never before imagined.
>In fact last year alone more Americans died from Heroin & Opioid related deaths than died in the entire Vietnam war. Let that sink in for a moment. Reports from local and state agencies across the United States have suggested that 59,000 to 65,000 people died of overdoses last year, and the calculated total is selected at 62,497.
>Not only have the number of overdose fatalities increased but now Heroin has surpassed prescription overdoses for the leading killer among men and women under the age of fifty. That's more deaths via illegal narcotic Heroin than car crashes or heart attacks or even gun homicides.
>So what's the solution to this problem? There is no easy answer but we must begin to investigate the origins of the Opium Poppy which is the source for both Heroin and Prescription Opioids. Afghanistan is the world's leading supplier of Opium Poppy where tribal warlords enslave farmers into growing the crops for cash. The Taliban even with its reputation as a brutal organization actually gave incentive to farmers to stop. The growth of Opium Poppy and instead grow edible cash crops. So why is it a Nation such as Afghanistan (which has been under US control) since 2001 is still producing enormous amounts of Opium Poppy?
>There is no official answer to this question. However the statistics tell a tale that has to have Americans asking two questions. One, why is Afghanistan producing more Opium Poppy and heroin under US control than it did before the war in 2001? Two, how is the world's leading supplier of heroin and opioid base able to export it into America to begin with? Certainly any American with an IQ above 80 has to realize this is a much deeper conspiracy and there has to be American assistance in the transportation of the very crop that is killing our own people. Is the CIA responsible? The Military? Someone has to be blamed.
>Meanwhile back in America the death toll continues to rise. In 2016 it reached its highest levels IP an estimated 19% from last year. In comparison, more than 58,000 US soldiers died in the entire Vietnam War, nearly 55,000 Americans died of car crashes at the peak of such deaths in 1972, more than 43,000 died due to HIV/AIDS during that epidemic's peak in 1995, and nearly 40,000 died of guns during the peak of those deaths in 1993.
>So what must America do to stop this? Ending the war in Afghanistan would be a great start.

Theresa May's Snap Election Backfires On Her Spectacularly Reader 06/09/2017 (Fri) 10:35:10 Id: 86f1a2 [Preview] No. 943 [Reply]


May’s gamble on a snap British vote backfires spectacularly, but she resists calls to step down

>Despite a shock election result that robbed her party of its parliamentary majority, >British Prime Minister Theresa May will ignore calls for her resignation and seek to form a new government on Friday.
>A spokesman for Downing Street confirmed that May plans to visit Buckingham Palace to seek permission from Queen Elizabeth II to put together a new government.
>British media reported that May struck a deal with Northern Ireland’s right-of-center Democratic Unionist Party, which will support her minority administration.
>May’s bet that she could strengthen her grip on power by calling an early election backfired spectacularly on Friday, with her Conservative Party falling shy of an overall majority.
>The outcome — an astonishing turn following a campaign that began with predictions that May would win in a historic landslide — immediately raised questions even among her fellow Tories about whether she could maintain her hold on 10 Downing Street.

Turkey Approves Bill Allowing Troop Deployment To Qatar Reader 06/07/2017 (Wed) 17:19:56 Id: 833464 [Preview] No. 934 [Reply]


Turkey Approves Bill Allowing Troop Deployment To Qatar


>In the ongoing diplomatic crisis between Qatar and its Gulf/Arab peers, which is either the result of Saudi nat gas envy or - for those who watch CNN - Russian hacking, Turkey has emerged as a vocal supporter of the small but wealthy state. On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Erdogan defended Qatar, saying he personally would have intervened if accusations that the tiny Gulf emirate supports "terrorism" were true and said he intends to "develop" ties with the embattled Gulf state hit by sanctions from Saudi Arabia and its allies.
>"Let me say at the outset that we do not think the sanctions against Qatar are good," Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara."Turkey will continue and will develop our ties with Qatar, as with all our friends who have supported us in the most difficult moments," he added in reference to last year's failed coup. The support puts Turkey in a complicated position because while the NATO member has close ties with Qatar it also has good relations with the other Gulf states, especially Saudi Arabia.
>Turkey's support for Qatar also has ideological reasons as in the past both both have provided support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and backed rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
>Erdogan was careful not to criticise Riyadh, calling on the member nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council to "resolve their differences through dialogue".
>"Efforts to isolate Qatar ... will not solve any problem," said Erdogan, praising Doha's "cool-headedness" and "constructive approach".
>"Presenting Qatar as a supporter of terrorism is a serious accusation," the Turkish leader said. "I know [Qatar's leaders] well and if that had been the case, I would have been the first head of state to confront them" which of course is ironic coming from near-dictator, who last year cracked down on over 100,000 Turkish citizens accusing them of cooperating with Fethulah Gulen's "shadow state", and who has been accused of using false flag terrorist attacks to crack down on the Kurdish minority in his country.
>On Wednesday morning Turkish support for Qatar escalated after the country's parliament was expected to fast-track a draft bill allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, officials from the ruling AK Party and the nationalist opposition said.

Nearly 100k Illegal 'Dreamers' Granted Amnesty Under Trump Already Reader 06/09/2017 (Fri) 19:26:15 Id: d28e17 [Preview] No. 946 [Reply]


Nearly 100,000 ‘Dreamers’ Granted Amnesty In Trump’s Opening Months

>The Trump administration has given amnesty to an estimated 98,000 illegal immigrants through former President Barack Obama’s program for minors who arrived in the U.S. illegally, according to government statistics released Thursday.
>The figures released by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) show that between January 1 and March 31, a total of 124,649 illegal immigrants got protection from deportation and work permits under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
>This includes 17,125 illegal immigrants initially getting approved for the program and 107,524 DACA recipients having their status renewed for another two years. Nearly 788,000 illegal immigrants in total have received approval for DACA since President Obama announced the creation of the program in 2012.
>Ending the amnesty program was a key part of President Trump’s campaign platform. He said during an August speech in Phoenix that he will “immediately terminate” the “illegal” amnesty. However, after getting into office, Trump changed his mind.
>He told the Associated Press in April that DACA recipients, commonly known as “Dreamers,'” can “rest easy.” He described it as “case of heart,” and said ICE won’t go “after the ‘dreamers.'”
>While Trump has kept the program, he could order USCIS to stop accepting applications and renewals. He has chosen not to do this and has disappointed anti-immigration hawks. Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King told The Daily Caller in April that “defenders of the constitution” might have to sue the president over the DACA program.

Qatar Puts Military On Highest State Of Alert In History as War Seems Imminent Reader 06/08/2017 (Thu) 22:16:01 Id: de544d [Preview] No. 939 [Reply]


>Yesterday's news that Saudi Arabia has issued an ultimatum to Qatar, listing ten demands among which that Qatar end all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, has prompted a dramatic response by the small Gulf nation, and according to a just released report by Arabic CNN (and confirmed locally) US officials have said they have observed increased Qatari military activity as the country placed its forces "on the highest state of alert" over fears of an imminent military incursion.
>The sources add that the Qatari military has brought up 16 Leopard tanks out of storage in Doha in preparation for a potential military incursion by surrounding Gulf states. Furthermore, the Qatari Ministry of Defense reportedly also sent a letter to Saudi, UAE and Bahraini governments, saying they would fire on any naval ships from those countries that enter into its waters, a US official said. US officials have said the situation in Qatar has not affected US military operations and security in Qatar.
>The escalation comes at the same time as president Donald Trump allegedly changed course on Qatar, a day after praising a move by other Gulf nations to sever diplomatic relations with Doha, which hosts a US military base crucial to the fight against ISIS. CNN reports that in a phone call with the Qatari Emir, Trump "extended an olive branch," offering to help the parties resolve their differences by inviting them to a White House meeting if necessary.
>In a description of the Wednesday call, the White House said Trump "emphasized the importance of all countries in the region working together to prevent the financing of terrorist organizations and stop the promotion of extremist ideology."
>Trump's latest flip flop echoed that of his secretaries of Defense and State, who emphasized Tuesday the need for Gulf unity and the importance of the US partnership with Qatar, home to the Al Udeid Air Base, the main regional center for air missions against ISIS.
>Separately, the WSJ validated yesterday's reports about a Saudi ultimatum, reporting late on Wednesday that leading Arab states are drawing up a list of demands that Qatar must meet to return to normal diplomatic and economic relations, including steps to significantly scale back the Al Jazeera media network. Oddly enough, there was no mention of "Russian hackers."
>Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and their allies are also seeking guarantees that Qatar’s government will stop its alleged financing of Middle East extremist groups and sever relations with the political leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, a global Islamist movement, according to these officials.

DOJ Arrests Two Hezbollah Terrorists Inside USA Plotting Attack Reader 06/09/2017 (Fri) 00:43:40 Id: 923953 [Preview] No. 942 [Reply]


Two U.S. Men Charged With Scouting Terrorist Targets for Hezbollah

>Two U.S. citizens are charged with scouting possible targets in New York and elsewhere for terrorist attacks by the Iranian-linked terrorist group Hezbollah, according to courts documents made public on Thursday.

>Ali Kourani, 32, of New York, and Samer el Debek, 37, of Dearborn, Michigan, were arrested last week on weapons-related charges and multiple counts of providing material support for a terrorist organization and receiving military training from a terrorist organization, according to the documents, which were unsealed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

>The FBI said in charging documents that no specific plot was underway but that Kourani and el Debek conducted extensive "pre-operational surveillance" to assess security vulnerabilities at the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Panama, as well as potential military and intelligence targets in New York.

>Both men, who are naturalized U.S. citizens, appeared in court in the past week and could face life in prison if convicted, U.S. officials said.

Former FBI Director Testifies 'He Could Not Trust Trump To Tell The Truth' Reader 06/08/2017 (Thu) 21:22:33 Id: 2e0340 [Preview] No. 938 [Reply]

James Comey testifies: Former FBI director says he helped reveal details of conversations with Trump

>Former FBI director James B. Comey said Thursday he helped reveal details of his private conversations with President Trump because he thought doing so would spur the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the administration — a remarkable admission showing the degree of concern he had about both Russian interference with U.S. politics and his doubts about the Justice Department’s ability to probe such activity.
>Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey described how details of his private memos about his one-on-one conversations came to light shortly after his dismissal
>“The president tweeted on Friday after I got fired that I’d better hope there are not tapes,” Comey said. He said he woke up on Monday thinking that if there are tapes, there might be corroboration of Comey’s account. Comey said he asked “a friend of mine to share” a memo he had written about his conversation with Trump “with a reporter.”
>Comey said the memo was one he had written about his Oval Office conversation with Trump in which the president had expressed a desire that the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn be dropped.
