As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.

It used to be one of the lesser-known amendments to the United States constitution, but lately, more and more people are talking about it.
But what even is the 25th amendment — and why is there increasing conversation about it?
Adopted on Feb. 1967, the 25th amendment says the president can be removed from office if the majority of their cabinet determines the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” Continue reading
If Japan wanted to go nuclear, it could do so within three months time or less.
Steve Bannon is right. China is the main event, North Korea is a sideshow. Nevertheless, one of the poorest nations on the planet has decided that its heart’s desire is to have a weapon system that can land one or more nuclear weapons on U.S. cities. Sometimes you are best served by ignoring the absurdity of the situation and concentrate on intent, because people crazy enough to put a lot of effort into something they don’t need might, on a whim or a mood swing, decide one day to use it.

On August 21st many Americans witnessed the moon cast a historic but short-lived shadow across the United States. One day later, President Trump reversed his previously stated position on the 16 year old Afghan War, thereby eclipsing the possibility that the United States would finally come to its senses and rethink a failed strategy that is likely to fail for years, perhaps decades, to come. The abrupt change, in what had been a central plank in candidate Trump’s appeal to voters thirsting for change in American foreign policy, came hard after the departure of Steve Bannon from the White House. As a self-avowed nationalist, Bannon had represented a true break in interventionist Republican thinking that had entangled the United States in intractable conflicts around the globe. To put an exclamation point, Sebastian Gorka, the last remaining proponent of the Bannon perspective, was forced out of the White House. The counter-revolution appears to be complete. Continue reading
In an interview that included a wide range of topics, Bannon said “We’re at economic war with China,” and that the U.S. is at risk of losing. “If we continue to lose it, we’re five years away, I think, 10 years at the most, of hitting an inflection point from which we’ll never be able to recover.”
In the interview, Bannon urged tough trade sanctions against Beijing, and said China is unlikely to force North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program. Continue reading
According to Bloomberg, a pro Paris bloc in his administration, which targets greenhouse emissions, is recruiting energy companies to lobby the President to remain in the controversial agreement that he specifically said was a waste of money during the campaign.
“Domestic energy companies are better positioned to compete globally if the United States remains a party to the Paris agreement,” Cheniere wrote. The accord “is a useful instrument for fostering demand for America’s energy resources and supporting the continued growth of American industry.” Continue reading
It must be very lonely at the top for President Trump right about now. There’s almost nobody in his administration that he can trust. To put in perspective how bad the level of trust might be, his own son-in-law Jared Kushner (previous owner of the anti-Trump New York Observer) is bankrolled by George Soros.
Both Kushner and Soros are part of the establishment that wants war. They couldn’t fraudulently get Hillary into the White House and now they’re placing key people in key positions within the Trump administration. He has got the wrong advisors on his side and he’s getting rid of the good ones.
Why on earth Kushner is allowed to stay in the White House while Steve Bannon who fought against the ‘deep state’ and further war gets the boot is beyond understanding. It’s likely because he doesn’t want to hurt Ivanka’s feelings. Either way, President Trump had either joined sides with the ‘deep state’ or is under siege. A smarter bet would be on the latter as America is under a coup against the Presidency.
The sad part about all of this is members of Trump’s own family are working against him — even Ivanka who has been in secret meetings with Planned Parenthood to find ‘common ground’… Common ground in what, the murder of God’s children? There is no common ground there.
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the Lord detests them both.
This might upset a few people, but the Trump revolution might already be over. We’ll have to maybe wait and see for another couple of weeks to verify.
Lastly, Trump needs to be reminded he was voted into office on his campaign promise of draining the swamp, not expanding it.
All day we’re talking about the Nuclear Option. Nuclear Option? What happens when the world goes nuclear? Today, the Congress decided to go nuclear … that is use the so called Nuclear Option to blow up the filibuster for a straight up or down vote on Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch. Even though Harry Reid started using the Nuclear Option in 2013 on lower court judges and Democrats and the media were all for it, now they’re acting like the world is coming to an end.
But they’re ignoring a possibility of the world really coming to an end.
Democrats have been poking the Russian bear since Trump won the election. The constant accusations of them fixing our election is not making them friendly towards us in the least. And why are they doing it? Because Trump said he could work with them?
But it doesn’t stop there. People in Trump’s own sphere are turning him towards the beating war drums. Dems and the establishment GOP both handcuffed loyal Trump advisers like Jeff Sessions, and now Devin Nunes, to take themselves out of any investigations on the Russia conspiracy. Steve Bannon, a close adviser is asked to step down from his NSC role. Continue reading
Former admin planted series of landmines to subvert Trump team
The Obama administration worked in its final weeks in office to undermine the incoming Trump White and continues to do so, according to multiple sources both in and out of the White House.
Behind the effort, these sources say, are senior government officials who previously worked under President Obama and remain loyal to his agenda. These individuals leak negative information about the Trump White House and its senior staff to a network of former Obama administration officials who then plant this information in key media outlets including the Washington Post and New York Times. Continue reading
Eight-plus years of deterioration through the Obama years and previous administrations and the turning of a blind eye to China have allowed it to rise and put America in jeopardy. The Chinese military has been on par with American capability for at least half of Obama’s term and is now cemented. America is now having to play catch-up, which will buy the PLA at least another four to eight years of time to get ahead and become even more entrenched.
Let one thing be clear: China isn’t pushing America out of the Asia-Pacific… it already has. It won’t be regained without a bloodbath.
US COMMANDERS are in fear of conflict with China because of the likelihood the Asian powerhouse would win, it has been claimed.
Donald Trump’s heavy handed approach to the South China sea – a billion dollar trade route – has angered his counterpart in beijing.
While the White House insists it must have a say over the resource-rich stretch of sea, experts are warning he has bitten off more than he can chew with China.
A missile-packed military fortress surrounds China which has cleverly constructed islands which work as stationary aircraft carriers under the leadership of Xi Jinping. Continue reading
What’s important to note here is the article’s spin, which paints the Trump administration as the war mongering administration, when in fact it’s the opposite. The Trump administration realizes the danger emanating out of China and how it was allowed to rise the last 24 years under the Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama administrations. Clintons gave them the tech via the U.S. Department of Commerce to modernize the PLA, Bush went to war and both depleted and overstretched the U.S. military while Obama almost finished it off with budget cuts and military purges.
The U.S. military is seriously weak and Trump is doing what he can to bring it back to its once-powerful status. In the meantime, he’s also working with what he was left: A fatigued military in shambles that still might have to go to war with China and in the Middle East yet again. Trump is clearly being set up to be the fall guy.
If you think that America is the aggressor in this case, you couldn’t be more than wrong. It was indeed China who said in 2010 that there will be hand-to-hand combat with America in 10 – 15 years. They, along with Russia, are the ones who want war with America. It was indeed China who said they wanted to exterminate the U.S population. What’s alarming is that they now have the capability to do so, and America now likely doesn’t.
So what you read out of this article, and what you hear from the selective soundbites that don’t give you the whole story, is that the military buildup and tension throughout the last three administrations has reached its peak. America has to prepare for war in defense, not out of war mongering.
What you read here is a deliberate attempt to distort the facts with the goal of undermining the national security of the United States as it turns people with very little discernment into pawns of opposition. The media thinks you are dumb and is preying on you.
The media is indeed the political opposition.
Only months ago US President Donald Trump’s chief strategist predicted military involvement in east Asia and the Middle East in Breitbart radio shows
The United States and China will fight a war within the next ten years over islands in the South China Sea, and “there’s no doubt about that”. At the same time, the US will be in another “major” war in the Middle East.
Those are the views – nine months ago at least – of one of the most powerful men in Donald Trump’s administration, Steve Bannon, the former head of far-right news website Breitbart who is now chief strategist at the White House. Continue reading
