• How Trump won the White House: Video footage of key moments of #Election2016

    09/Nov/2016 // 308 Viewers


    The race is over. Donald Trump is president-elect, defeating HIllary Clinton and putting a Republican back in the White House. The 2016 election campaign wasn’t pretty, but it was entertaining.

    Trump’s announcement in June 2015 that he would run for president was met largely with ridicule, as many saw the reality TV star’s bid to make the White House as a joke. Trump’s lack of any experience in political office positioned him as an outsider from the start.
    Building walls
    Campaigning started off controversially, with Trump laying down his mission with the now-infamous statement that he would build a “great wall” on the US-Mexican border, claiming their neighbours were sending “criminals, drug dealers, rapists,” into the US.
    His attack on immigrants was ramped up in December 2015 in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting. Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US, causing further division amongst Republicans and outrage from his future Democratic rival.

    A bitter Republican race

    The bizarreness of the Republican campaign continued when, in the first primary debate in August 2015, Trump declared he would not pledge his support to a Republican nominee other than himself and didn’t rule out running as a third-party candidate.

    Trump, already gaining traction in the polls despite not being backed within the party, later signed a pledge promising his allegiance to the Republican Party.

    Convention controversies

    Both parties’ conventions took place in July, with Melania Trump grabbing the headlines with her allegedly-plagiarized speech from Michelle Obama.

    Watch video below:

    Clinton used the Democratic National Convention to attack Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigrants to the US, with the Pakistani-American parents of deceased US soldier Humayun Khan speaking.

    “Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities.” his father Khizr Khan said.

    Trump caused outrage with his rebuttal when he said “If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably — maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say.”

    Ghazala Khan responded that she was too upset to speak about her deceased son.

    Trump picked Indiana governor Mike Pence as his running mate, with Clinton choosing junior Senator from Virginia Tim Kaine.

    The 'Aleppo moment'

    The Green Party’s Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson, among other third-party candidates, would keep the nominees company on the ballot. Johnson’s gained most notoriety for famously not knowing what Aleppo was.

    Meanwhile, Stein become embroiled in accusations she was “anti-vaccine” after claiming they were not to be trusted, a statement from which she later attempted to distance herself.

    'Basket of deplorables' and 'locker room talk'

    Comments made by Clinton in September this year that described half of Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” caused further damage to her reputation. She apologized for the comment claiming she was wrong to be “grossly generalistic.”

  • 25 African-Americans thrown out of South Carolina restaurant after a white woman complained of feeling 'threatened

    09/Sep/2016 // 718 Viewers


    A South Carolina man and several of his friends say they were refused service at a Wild Wing Cafe in Charleston last month and asked to leave. The reason: Michael Brown and his group of 24 friends and family members are African-American, and another customer - a white woman - complained that she felt threatened by the group.

    That's according to Brown, who was celebrating his cousin's last day in Charleston with a night out at the Wild Wing Cafe. Brown took his beef to social media, and the story went viral.
    The apparent race-based snub came after Brown and his group waited for a table for about two hours.

    Brown called the restaurant's corporate headquarters repeatedly to explain what had happened to the manager's superiors. But nobody ever called him back - so he turned to Facebook.

    'I will never go to Wild wings cafe in N. Chs again! We (Party of 25 family and friends) waited 2hrs, patiently and were refused service because another customer (White) felt threatened by us. 

    This type of racial discrimination is unacceptable and we have to put a STOP TO IT. The manager looked me dead in the face and said she was refusing us service because she had a right to and simply she felt like it. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ESTABLISHMENT... PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... We need your help,' he posted on the restaurant's Facebook page. 
    After Brown's post started getting a bit of attention, the restaurant finally acknowledged Brown's complaint.

    'We got alerted through social media, so we always encourage our customers to respond to us or to comment on our social media pages,' Debra Stokes, the chief marketing officer for Wild Wing Cafe, told the station.

    After the post, representatives for Wild Wing Cafe said they immediately responded and spoke to Brown.

    'We had a conversation,' said Stokes. 'It was a really good conversation. He and many of his family and friends were there about a month ago, and they are regular customers of ours. So, they were having a going away party, and they just didn't receive the experience that they have come to know and love.'

    At no point did Stokes deny that Brown's story was true.
    The restaurant offered Brown and his family a free meal for the entire group. But Brown isn't completely satisfied.

    'We weren't coming there for a free meal. When we came there that night, we were coming to patronize the business. This is not a situation where you can just give us a free meal and everything is ok because it's deeper than that,' he said.

    As of Sunday night, Brown's post was shared on Facebook nearly 3,000 times.

  • TREASON OF THE HIGHEST KIND: Special forces just exposed GOV. order to abort Benghazi rescue

    10/Dec/2016 // 832 Viewers

                                  Biggest traitors in American history

    Hillary Clinton deserves an orange jumpsuit, nothing else. Anyone that can leave Americans to die deserves to rot in hell.
    Anyone that can leave Americans to fight for 13 hours against hundreds of terrorists without any help should be charged with treason.
    These latest revelations are coming from Col. Andrew Woods, who is claiming that his quick response team was actually in route to the firefight that was taking place at the American compound in Benghazi, when word came from President Obama to turn back, because he would not give the “go-ahead-order” and thus Woods was forced to abandon his comrades.
    Something that no military man would ever do, unless forced to do so by the Commander-in-Chief.
    Col. Woods, who once commanded a Special Forces anti-terrorism team protecting Ambassador Chris Stevens and other diplomats in Libya, reiterated his claim: “Those individuals I know loaded aircraft and got on their way to Benghazi to respond to that incident. They were not allowed to cross the border as per protocol until they got approval from the commander-in-chief,” Wood explained.
    “That authority has to come from him or they’re not allowed to enter the country.”
    We will never forget!
    Additionally, there were dozens of requests filed that a terrorist attack was looming, yet Clinton and Obama refused to take any calls or do anything about it.
    Now, we have 4 innocent Americans dead and Hillary Clinton is free to live life in her mansion without any worry in the world.
    How does it make you feel knowing Hillary and Obama deliberately left our men and women to die that night?
    Tell us your thoughts below and share this to honor our brave Americans that lost their lives that night.

  • Breaking News: Again, Donald Trump makes a very important appointment - The Washington Post Reports

    10/Dec/2016 // 2133 Viewers


    President-elect Donald Trump is expected to choose Rex Tillerson, the chief executive of Exxon Mobil who has worked extensively around the globe and built relationships with world leaders, as his secretary of state, three people close to the transition team confirmed Saturday.

    Tillerson’s nomination could face intense scrutiny in the Senate considering his years of work in Russia on behalf of the multinational petroleum company and his close relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump spokesman Jason Miller said there would be no official announcement until next week, but other sources said that the pick is expected to be Tillerson, barring a late shift in Trump’s thinking.

    Tillerson’s nomination would fit the pattern of other Trump appointments, installing a wealthy business leader with little experience in policymaking. But Tillerson, 64, has spent much of his career dealing with the complexities of one of the world’s biggest enterprises, spanning six continents and about six dozen nations.

    The company’s deep ties to Russia would potentially serve Tillerson well given Trump’s desire to repair relations with the Kremlin. But Tillerson’s close relationship with Vladi­mir Putin could also become a flashpoint during confirmation hearings, especially in light of a recent CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system.

    “Few corporate titans are closer to Putin than Tillerson,” said Jason Bordoff, founder of Columbia University’s center for global energy.

    During the 1990s, Tillerson oversaw an Exxon project on Russia’s Sakhalin island and developed a working relationship with Putin. In 2011, the company signed an agreement with the state-controlled oil company, Rosneft, to work jointly on oil exploration and development in the Arctic and Siberia.

    After inking the deal in New York, Tillerson and Rosneft chairman and Putin confidante Igor Sechin dined on caviar at the luxury Manhattan restaurant Per Se, according to one account. The next day they gave oil analysts black pens with the date of the agreement engraved in gold.

    Two years later, the Kremlin awarded Tillerson the Order of Friendship, honoring foreigners.

    “I don’t know the man much at all, but let’s put it this way: If you received an award from the Kremlin, [an] order of friendship, then we’re gonna have some talkin’,” said Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.). “We’ll have some questions. I don’t want to prejudge the guy but that’s a bit unnerving.”

    Exxon discovered oil in a well it drilled in the Kara Sea, but the joint partnership was put on ice after Russian intervention in Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea led to international economic sanctions. As secretary of state, Tillerson, who has been critical of the sanctions, would be in a position to argue for an easing them, which could allow Exxon to resume operations.

    “Russia is critical for Exxon,” said Fadel Gheit, oil analyst for Oppenheimer & Co. “Not only for how much production it has there, but the potential growth is huge.” He said once sanctions are lifted, “Exxon will go back to develop the Arctic business at a rapid pace.”

    As Secretary of State, which takes the lead in international climate talks, the oil industry veteran could also play a role in unwinding U.S. commitments under the recent Paris accord.

    “The closest thing we have to a secretary of State outside government is the CEO of Exxon,” Robert McNally, president of the consulting firm Rapidan Group and a director for energy at President George W. Bush’s national security council. Because ExxonMobil invests in huge, long-term projects, it is concerned “by nature with enduring interests, vulnerabilities, and opportunities,” McNally said.

    His selection ends one of the most high-profile contests for a top cabinet post, whose losing candidates included former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Sen. Bob Corker (R-NC).

    Tillerson has spent his entire working life at ExxonMobil after earning a civil engineering degree and joining the company in 1975. His career has taken him from Oklahoma and Texas to Yemen and Russia, and as ExxonMobil’s top executive he has cultivated relationships, meeting regularly with world leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Saudi oil minister, and the emir of Qatar. He will retire with a nest egg of about $300 million including stock options and pension benefits.

    Yet Tillerson’s track record — during a decade in which crude oil prices lurched from under $30 to nearly $150 a barrel — has been mixed. The company has managed some of the world’s biggest infrastructure projects often in forbidding locations, but it has spent heavily on share buybacks and has borrowed heavily to maintain both capital spending and dividend payments. Wall Street analysts say it overpaid for XTO, a domestic shale gas company, and it has failed to meet the production targets Tillerson himself set. In April, Standard & Poor’s downgraded the company’s gold-plated triple A credit rating to double A plus, the first time Exxon had lost its triple A rating since the advent of color television and the communists took over China.

    Moreover, Tillerson’s career with ExxonMobil isn’t seen as an asset by environmentalists. The company has become a target of environmental groups that allege the company’s scientists knew about the impact the use of fossil fuels was having on climate change, and that the company suppressed internal research rather than sharing it with investors and the public.

    The New York and Massachusetts attorneys general have issued broad subpoenas to ascertain whether ExxonMobil’s failure to disclose that information violated Securities and Exchange Commission requirements. ExxonMobil has fought back, persuading a Texas federal court to order that ExxonMobil could do discovery, depose the Massachusetts attorney general and search her internal emails and documents for any signs that she acted out of “bad faith.”

    “Covering up climate science and deceiving investors qualifies you for federal investigation, not federal office,” May Boeve, executive director of the climate group 350.org said in a statement. “An oil baron as Secretary of State would do enormous damage.”

    When Tillerson took the helm at ExxonMobil a decade ago, he was seen as moderating the company’s position on climate change. Whereas his predecessor opposed any action on climate change, Tillerson said in 2009 that he favored a carbon tax and proposed an initial price “somewhere north of $20” a ton. And he reduced ExxonMobil’s own emissions.

    Under Tillerson, ExxonMobil also curtailed funding for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, whose energy and climate expert Myron Ebell played down the extent of climate change and said that no action was needed. Ebell has been the head of the Trump transition team on environmental issues.

    Yet Tillerson still insisted that oil use was essential. He chaired the American Petroleum Institute, which hammered on the idea that jobs were at stake. “To say that you’re addicted to oil and natural gas seems to me to say you’re addicted to economic growth,” he once told Fortune magazine.

    Exxon has important relationships with countries other than Russia, most notably the Middle East. It relies on Saudi Arabia for oil supplies and is a partner in refinery projects. It has enormous liquefied natural gas export projects in Qatar. It has also managed to carry out exploration and production ventures in both Kurdistan and southern Iraq, transcending rivalries between Baghdad and the Kurds.

    But under Tillerson, Exxon has also walked away from some countries. It left Venezuela after contract disputes with the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez and it ended its onshore operations in Nigeria, where local insurgents sabotaged infrastructure.

    Tillerson said later that “you have to be willing to say ‘no, we aren’t going to do it that way...if we can’t do it this way, we won’t be here.’”

    Within the oil industry, ExxonMobil has been regarded as the most button-downed company, conservative and sometimes arrogant.

    “Rex is a very, very, very honorable man,” said Gheit, who is also one of his critics. “He is smart, level headed. He has tremendous resolve and very strong character.”

    Tillerson was born in Witchita Falls, Tx., the son of a Boy Scout administrator. He still lists the rank of Eagle Scout on his resume, and he has remained active in the organization throughout his life. In 2012, he was instrumental in pushing the Boy Scouts board to admit openly gay youths.

    The Exxon chief also chaired the $50 million campaign to restore Washington’s Fords Theatre, where President Lincoln was assassinated. ExxonMobil and Qatar were major donors.

    In confirmation hearings, Tillerson can also expect to face tough questions about his views on international pipelines such as the Keystone XL, which require State Department approval. He’ll also be quizzed on climate change.

    “I’d expect the State Department’s climate change envoy— a key role under [Hillary] Clinton and [John F.] Kerry—to have a lot of free time on his or her hands, and that State Department permits to build oil pipelines to Canada will be quite a bit easier to get,” Bordoff said.

    Tillerson has acknowledged that climate change is caused by humans, but questioned the costs of weaning the world from fossil fuels.

    “What good is it to save the planet if humanity suffers,” he said at a 2013 stockholders meeting, citing the outsized impact on poor people if environmental activists succeeded in establishing company goals to reduce emissions.

  • Breaking News: Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House (VIDEO)

    10/Dec/2016 // 567 Viewers


    The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.
    Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.

    “It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.”
    The Obama administration has been debating for months how to respond to the alleged Russian intrusions, with White House officials concerned about escalating tensions with Moscow and being accused of trying to boost Clinton’s campaign.
    In September, during a secret briefing for congressional leaders, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) voiced doubts about the veracity of the intelligence, according to officials present.
    The Trump transition team did not respond to a request for comment.
    Trump has consistently dismissed the intelligence community’s findings about Russian hacking. “I don’t believe they interfered” in the election, he told Time magazine this week. The hacking, he said, “could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”
    The CIA shared its latest assessment with key senators in a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill last week, in which agency officials cited a growing body of intelligence from multiple sources. Agency briefers told the senators it was now “quite clear” that electing Trump was Russia’s goal, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.
    The CIA presentation to senators about Russia’s intentions fell short of a formal U.S. assessment produced by all 17 intelligence agencies. A senior U.S. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency’s assessment, in part because some questions remain unanswered.
    For example, intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks, a second senior U.S. official said. Those actors, according to the official, were “one step” removed from the Russian government, rather than government employees. Moscow has in the past used middlemen to participate in sensitive intelligence operations so it has plausible deniability.
    Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has said in a television interview that the “Russian government is not the source.”
    The White House and CIA officials declined to comment.
    On Friday, the White House said President Obama had ordered a “full review” of Russian hacking during the election campaign, as pressure from Congress has grown for greater public understanding of exactly what Moscow did to influence the electoral process.
    “We may have crossed into a new threshold, and it is incumbent upon us to take stock of that, to review, to conduct some after-action, to understand what has happened and to impart some lessons learned,” Obama’s counterterrorism and homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
    Obama wants the report before he leaves office Jan. 20, Monaco said.
    During her remarks, Monaco didn’t address the latest CIA assessment, which hasn’t been previously disclosed.
    Seven Democratic senators last week asked Obama to declassify details about the intrusions and why officials believe that the Kremlin was behind the operation. Officials said Friday that the senators specifically were asking the White House to release portions of the CIA’s presentation.
    This week, top Democratic lawmakers in the House also sent a letter to Obama, asking for briefings on Russian interference in the election.
    U.S. intelligence agencies have been cautious for months in characterizing Russia’s motivations, reflecting the United States’ long-standing struggle to collect reliable intelligence on President Vladi­mir Putin and those closest to him.
    In previous assessments, the CIA and other intelligence agencies told the White House and congressional leaders that they believed Moscow’s aim was to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system. The assessments stopped short of saying the goal was to help elect Trump.
    On Oct. 7, the intelligence community officially accused Moscow of seeking to interfere in the election through the hacking of “political organizations.” Though the statement never specified which party, it was clear that officials were referring to cyber-intrusions into the computers of the DNC and other Democratic groups and individuals.
    Some key Republican lawmakers have continued to question the quality of evidence supporting Russian involvement.
    “I’ll be the first one to come out and point at Russia if there’s clear evidence, but there is no clear evidence — even now,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a member of the Trump transition team. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”
    [U.S. investigating potential covert Russian plan to disrupt elections]
    Though Russia has long conducted cyberspying on U.S. agencies, companies and organizations, this presidential campaign marks the first time Russia has attempted through cyber means to interfere in, if not actively influence, the outcome of an election, the officials said.
    The reluctance of the Obama White House to respond to the alleged Russian intrusions before Election Day upset Democrats on the Hill as well as members of the Clinton campaign.
    Within the administration, top officials from different agencies sparred over whether and how to respond. White House officials were concerned that covert retaliatory measures might risk an escalation in which Russia, with sophisticated cyber capabilities, might have less to lose than the United States, with its vast and vulnerable digital infrastructure.
    The White House’s reluctance to take that risk left Washington weighing more limited measures, including the “naming and shaming” approach of publicly blaming Moscow.
    By mid-September, White House officials had decided it was time to take that step, but they worried that doing so unilaterally and without bipartisan congressional backing just weeks before the election would make Obama vulnerable to charges that he was using intelligence for political purposes.
    Instead, officials devised a plan to seek bipartisan support from top lawmakers and set up a secret meeting with the Gang of 12 — a group that includes House and Senate leaders, as well as the ranking members of both chambers’ committees on intelligence and homeland security.
    Obama dispatched Monaco, FBI Director James B. Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to make the pitch for a “show of solidarity and bipartisan unity” against Russian interference in the election, according to a senior administration official.
    Specifically, the White House wanted congressional leaders to sign off on a bipartisan statement urging state and local officials to take federal help in protecting their voting-registration and balloting machines from Russian cyber-intrusions.
    Though U.S. intelligence agencies were skeptical that hackers would be able to manipulate the election results in a systematic way, the White House feared that Moscow would attempt to do so, sowing doubt about the fundamental mechanisms of democracy and potentially forcing a more dangerous confrontation between Washington and Moscow.
    In a secure room in the Capitol used for briefings involving classified information, administration officials broadly laid out the evidence U.S. spy agencies had collected, showing Russia’s role in cyber-intrusions in at least two states and in hacking the emails of the Democratic organizations and individuals.
    And they made a case for a united, bipartisan front in response to what one official described as “the threat posed by unprecedented meddling by a foreign power in our election process.”
    The Democratic leaders in the room unanimously agreed on the need to take the threat seriously. Republicans, however, were divided, with at least two GOP lawmakers reluctant to accede to the White House requests.
    According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.
    Some of the Republicans in the briefing also seemed opposed to the idea of going public with such explosive allegations in the final stages of an election, a move that they argued would only rattle public confidence and play into Moscow’s hands.
    McConnell’s office did not respond to a request for comment. After the election, Trump chose McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as his nominee for transportation secretary.
    Some Clinton supporters saw the White House’s reluctance to act without bipartisan support as further evidence of an excessive caution in facing adversaries.
    “The lack of an administration response on the Russian hacking cannot be attributed to Congress,” said Rep. Adam B. Schiff (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who was at the September meeting. “The administration has all the tools it needs to respond. They have the ability to impose sanctions. They have the ability to take clandestine means. The administration has decided not to utilize them in a way that would deter the Russians, and I think that’s a problem.”

  • Breaking: Thanks Jill! The recount just created a huge win for Republicans in Congress

    10/Dec/2016 // 1595 Viewers

                            Bet They Didn’t See This Coming!

    Jill Stein’s recount effort was not only a huge scam and a testament to the swamp that must be immediately drained, but also a huge success in pushing stricter voter ID laws.
    Yes, you read that correctly. Stein’s whole recount fiasco just caused the Michigan state legislature to buckle down and institute tougher laws when it comes to voting. They have now instituted tough voter ID laws in response to Jill’s plea for “fairer” elections.
    She probably didn’t see that coming and instead expected to open up an opportunity for more fraud to take place (it’s already been confirmed that Soros is the reason for much of her fundraising success).
    In the end though, the Michigan legislative body was smart enough to see through the nonsense, stating that the only reason the recount is even being pushed is because “Democratic lawmakers representing substantial black district populations are more opposed to restrictive voter ID laws”.
    In short, the only reason voter ID laws aren’t an automatic thing is because Liberals know they would hurt voter turnout (a clear example being the 3,000,000+ illegals that voted on November 8th).
    Michigan is leading the fight in voter reform, and it’s our duty to share and support their efforts as we take a stand to Make America Great Again!

  • BREAKING: Finally, ARMAGEDON looms as news of planned airstrike by CHINA against US military base confirmed

    10/Feb/2017 // 2605 Viewers

    While Trump is not attempting to bomb anyone but ISIS – who is fair game for everyone except Russia, it seems – world leaders are trying to start a war with Trump.
    Not since Russia put nuclear weapons in Cuba mere miles from Florida has the world been as close to being inhabited by only plant life and cockroaches (after mankind has killed themselves down to the last man leaving nothing else) until America did the same thing to Russia in the name of fighting terror. Putin is the big bad wolf in the eyes of the world but there exists also a Chinese threat that the world would prove wise to watch more closely. Proof of this can be shown now that China is blatantly preparing for a pre-emptive strike on America.
    Satellite data is showing that China is trying to mask their military bases as merely testing grounds, transporting weapons that can target United States bases and interests in Japan and throughout the Orient, and they have been including the DF-16 missile, which can reach areas that are now contested, into the mix.
    All Chinese tests have been mocks and practice runs for eliminating American destroyers, carriers, and even Asian airfields. If China were to prove both foolish and reckless enough to use such weapons against the Philippines, Okinawa, Japan where U.S. troops reside, or even the quasi-succeded “nation” of Taiwan, then all bets are off. At that point, the actions and reactions could range from a few threatening words to skirmishes to all-out nuclear Armageddon.
    Satilites are showing that China is lying about their training grounds….they are military bases!

    Weapons like the DF-16 can evade the U.S. Patriot anti-missile systems that became so pivotal in protecting Israel against the rockets sent by Saddam Hussein in Gulf War One. A lot of years have come and gone since those days and this matters because Taiwan relies on Patriot’s to keep them safe, mostly from China.
    The DF-16 is one of the most accurate missiles ever created and can hit with a precision that is equated to be within about 16 feet. Moreover, no one is producing missiles like the Chinese, something that is seen as quite alarming when one considers that China has frequently been talking about war – even nuclear war – with America.
    Not only is China angry about the islands in the South China Sea that that are both real and Chinese made, but they are also angry that Trump is willing to rethink the notion of the “One China Policy” that America currently obeys. This is because the rather inconsiderate policy does not recognize Taiwan as a rightful independent nation from China. Like history has seen from most communist nations where the people want freedom, China has been adamant that they are going to force Taiwan into being Chinese, even if it leads to the battlefield to do so.
    Democrats would be wise to quit accusing Trump of being a warmonger and help him address China who IS.

    While they could create waves, Trump is not uncaring towards human rights the way that most presidents are, and this shows in his actions towards Taiwan. He accepted a call from the Taiwanese president congratulating him on his win over Clinton, which angered China greatly and which Trump thankfully did not apologize for.
    The most woeful part in all of this is that China could very easily decide that risking war with the U.S. is an option since America has most of their manufacturing and production factories IN China, willfully no less. Fair trade with all is the libertarian solution to the problem of war, but “trade” does not mean sending the nation’s ability to make anything to another nation, as the United States had done with China.
    China makes even components for U.S. weapons systems while America can not even make electric power grid units without Chinese help at this point. If China was to simply start war and envelope all of our factories, there is not a lot that we could do about it. Even nuking China would not get our plants home allowing us to actually make or manufacture anything.

    China is moving and aiming DF-16 missile’s that can foil the anti-missile U.S. Patriot systems that Taiwan use. They are also pointing their weapons at the United States.
    If China was going to demand parts of the South China Sea, that other nations also use ,be recognized solely as Chinese, then the time to inform the world of such motivations was long before China willingly engaged in trade deals with nations that did not feel the same. The time to attempt to fully acquire shared islands in the region is not when China has finagled the best jobs in the world from a greedy and dumbed down America.
    With Trump taking the time to tweet his actual plans (in 140 characters or less for said dumbed down people) and alerting the nation to things like Chinese money manipulations in terms that Joe Sixpack can understand, the nation is waking up rapidly. This more than anything else is Trump’s ace card.
    The president now needs to play that ace card at a table where China is the dealer. Trump needs to speak to the Chinese in the ways that he did when he was making his now world famous “amazing deals” with them before he earned the president’s chair. If anyone can convey the basic facts and needs of America at the same time that Chinese worries and concerns are heard in a meaningful way, Trump can.
    He has dealt with more people in more distant lands than most politicians. The time for this conversation to happen, much like with Vladimir Putin, is better now than later since weapons are being moved around like chess pieces. The left has said that Trump is a threat to world peace, but Trump has  only attacked ISIS, and that was on orders prewritten by Obama.

China said on Friday (March 4, 2011) its military spending for 2011 would rise 12.7 percent over last year, resuming double-digit hikes that have stoked regional disquiet about Beijings expanding strength. Chinese parliamentary spokesman Li Zhaoxing said the increase would bring the defense budget for the year to 601.1 billion yuan ($91.5 billion), compared to 532.1 billion yuan spent on defense in 2010.
    China often marches their nuclear missiles in displays of force and threat to the world.

    All of this was hinted at by North Korea who have been dancing with exuberance at even a whisper that it will get to nuke somebody. Kim Jung Un is willing to nuke even South Korea knowing that it will also poison his own palace due to proximity to the Seoul blast site if the firecracker were to work.
    China is, in theory, the handler of Kim Jung Un, in so much that a madman can be controlled, and China has not condemned North Korea very strongly for the threats. This may be because Xi in China is speaking through their North Korean stooge.
    This could lead to North Korea being toppled, but China has killed millions of their own people, so adding a few hundred thousand dead North Koreans to the list is hardly of any moral concern to China. China may even be wanting to use North Korea as an excuse on the world stage to fight the U.S. Such a ploy could be used to bring Russia in as well, which could also end terribly for mankind. With this as a backdrop and with Trump also building up American might, the world watches and waits to see those amazing deals come true before we see bomb clouds over our cities.

  • Mexico drug lord "El Chapo" Guzman to face US extradition hearing

     AFP | Drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is escorted into a helicopter at Mexico City's airport on January 8, 2016


    MEXICO CITY (AFP) -Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman will face hearings for his possible extradition to the United States following his recapture, authorities said Saturday.

    The Mexican attorney general's office said the proceedings are based on two extradition requests made by US authorities last year, but it did not indicate when they would start.

    "With Guzman Loera's recapture, the respective extradition proceedings will have to start," the office said in a statement, noting that prosecutors obtained two arrest warrants for his extradition last year.

    Lawyers for Guzman will have three days to file objections and 20 more days to prove them, though that timeframe can be extended, the statement said.

    The attorney general's office said it would "bring evidence to fight" the objections.

    Guzman was arrested on Friday in Los Mochis, a coastal city in his northwestern home state of Sinaloa, six months after his prison break.

    President Enrique Pena Nieto had balked at extraditing Guzman prior to his escape, but the government has apparently decided to change tack.

  • IS sympathizer who shot US cop charged with attempted murder

    10/Jan/2016 // 226 Viewers


    NEW YORK (AFP) - The suspect who shot and seriously wounded a police officer in Philadelphia while claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group was charged Saturday with attempted murder, the district attorney's office said.

    Police said it was unclear whether the alleged assailant, Edward Archer, a 30-year-old local man, acted alone or as part of a wider conspiracy.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that the suspect had traveled to Egypt and Saudi Arabia in recent years for reasons that were unclear on Saturday.

    Archer, who was captured on a video surveillance camera opening fire at point-blank range, was in Saudi Arabia for a couple weeks in October-November 2011 and Egypt for several months in 2012, the Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the matter.

    Homicide police Captain James Clark told a news conference Friday that Archer had "stated that he pledges his allegiance to Islamic State, follows Allah and that is the reason he was called upon to do this."

    The episode comes amid heightened security in the United States following last month's assault by a radicalized Muslim couple in California that killed 14 people, and the November terror attacks in Paris.

    The wounded policeman, Jesse Hartnett, 33, was shot three times in his left arm as he sat in his patrol car late Thursday in the northeastern city.

    The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office tweeted Saturday that Archer was being held without bail after he was "charged with attempted murder and related crimes for the shooting of police officer Jesse Hartnett."

    Stills captured from video surveillance and released to the press show the suspect opening fire as he walks towards the patrol car, extending his arm into the vehicle and then continuing to fire as he flees on foot.

    Hartnett got out of his vehicle despite being wounded and managed to return fire, hitting the suspect, who was quickly arrested.

    Authorities said they were astonished Hartnett survived.

    It was unclear how the suspect obtained his firearm, which was stolen from police in October 2013, authorities said
