Despite centuries have past, they still do not feel comfortable enough to have healthy economic ties and sociopolitical and cultural ties with south America. 

Great point! I hadn't thought of it that way. And let's not even get started on how white Americans think of native Americans!

My administration is proud to have led historic efforts, at the United Nations Security Council and around the world, to unite all civilized nations in our campaign of MAXIMUM PRESSURE to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. And we continue to call on partners to confront Iran’s support for terrorists and to block Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon.

Prompted by a line in a news report on the Nunes Memo release, l found the likes of this:

Fusion GPS was initially hired by the conservative Washington Free Beacon to find dirt on "republican" contenders for the GOP nomination. When Trump began winning the investigations leading to this FISA abuse and the Nunes Memo was dropped, but then re-hired by Hillary Camp and the DNC.

Washington Free Beacon  is sponsored by Elliot Management hedge-fund founder and Cayman lsIands operative Paul Singer, see:

^^^^^^^ OPINE:  While even reporters are saying there is to much left unexplained, what is apparent is there is a power struggle going on between "Washington Insiders" and "outsiders" led by Trump. This thought help explains how Hillary-DNC were told by the "Republican Wing of lnsiders" that Fusion GPS was already investigating.

Trump again confirms his ignorance of Iran, region: Zarif

57631077.jpg

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif emphasized that US President’s Donald Trump again confirms his ignorance of Iran and the region.

Mr. Zarif in a tweet reacted to Trump’s recent statements against Iran.

“Trump again confirms his ignorance of Iran and region. Everyone knows where he stands; and it’s certainly not with Iranians. His ‘virtuous’, ‘democratically-elected’ clients in our region may cheer, but not those on receiving end of their tyranny and weapons, incl Yemeni children,” he wrote on his Twitter account.

He is nothing to be afraid of but he is certainly only going to further the destabilization of the Middle East such as his strikes on Syria which is a sovereign country, his prolonging of the Afghan war as well as his tough positions on Iran while they are already breaking down.

Trump poll:

https://action.donaldjtrump.com/listening-to-america-2018-survey/

Some of the questions:

doct.jpeg.1fefcd59d6cfaeb9dc569b73e89f0d11.jpeg

 

Speaking of indoctrination, the questionnaire is not exactly a paragon of even-handedness:

rip.jpeg.4f89d4a89befa6d0bcef563112889a24.jpeg 

Who in their right minds would say 'no' to the above question.

And obviously we have the anti-Muslim questions:

terrier.jpeg.d002f63ac2c6732ae52360f39a29d1a5.jpeg

Again difficult to have people say no to the above. Only problem is that most of the rest of the world have another country that is more terrorism compromised and which is not on the list and one where Trump did a sword dance...

And the question on the top of most Americans' minds:

Israel Group Mints Trump Coin to Honor Jerusalem Recognition

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSFEB. 28, 2018, 9:18 A.M. E.S.T.

JERUSALEM — An Israeli organization said Wednesday it has minted a coin bearing President Donald Trump's image to honor his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Mikdash Educational Center said the "Temple Coin" features Trump alongside King Cyrus, who 2,500 years ago allowed Jews to return to Jerusalem from their exile in Babylon.

Rabbi Mordechai Persoff said that Trump, like Cyrus, made a "big declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of the holy people."

His organization minted 1,000 biblical half-shekel coins that can be purchased with a minimum donation of $50. The coin cannot be used as currency.

Mikdash bills itself as a non-profit educational and religious organization. The donations will "help spread the light of Jerusalem and the spirit of the Holy Temple throughout the world," it said.

Israel has warmly welcomed Trump's move, which angered Palestinians.

l haven't posted it, but doing some reading, there is a thesis at calstate by Eric Tesar (2015) which is more of an info piece. lf you read the PRC"s Global Times at Xinhua, the PRC is really pressuring the DPRK. Kim cannot screw-up (or around) particularly with every embassy watching and studying events.

One summation l derived from Tesar is that the DPRK is now the "new middle kingdom".

Trump is replacing top officials who were hired because of their private sector reputations with people who have less stature but are more loyal and more attuned to the president’s gut instincts. 

In foreign policy, the new era looks to be more confrontational. At the state department, Tillerson’s job is being taken by the CIA director, Mike Pompeo, who is considerably more hawkish that his predecessor on Iran and North Korea.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/mar/17/donald-trump-tillerson-pompeo-mcmaster-bolton-iran-north-korea

I've always had doubts as to the extent to which Trump's voter base is concerned about Iran, or even knows where it is. And the same goes for him. On the other hand, his other middle eastern initiatives suggest this is part of a wider objective.

https://www.usnews.com/news/entertainment/articles/2018-03-26/60-minutes-stormy-daniels-get-big-ratings-some-push-back 

Now supposedly, we are to believe that the whole country is interested in Adult-porn-"Stormy Daniels" and her allegations towards Pres. Trump.

All the American news Monday was proclaiming "22 million viewers watched it".

Which means 310 million did not watch it.

Really, a twyst with Trump. Who cares?  l, personally, do not believe her. Especially since she started this one week before the 2016 General Election after another ~20 damsels-in-distress made similar allegations --a few of whom have already settled out of court to limit their financial damages they paid/are paying  Trump.

OPINE: lf this was a boost in ratings that CBS needed for 60 Minutes they are sure desperate.

While writ civilly, the following is Adult Content:

Last week, l caught a lawyer on CBS This Morning talking about Donald J. Trump and Blustery Daniels --or whatever this worn out stripper's stage name is.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/michael-cohen-attorney-david-schwartz-stormy-daniels-payment/  where Schwartz said @2' "there is not one shred of evidence" to support her claims;  @3:45 she was "shopping the story" around; @6' and was doing so after she was paid $130k; and, that Schwartz is filing a defamation suit against Buzz Feed @8:10 .

This is an edifying read for any age group: http://adage.com/article/the-media-guy/decoding-stormy-daniels-brand-strategy/312928/ by Simon Dumenco, a columnist for Ad Age --a trade publication for advertisers. [Opine: Remembering a news quip from ~February, which said she has legal coaching]. This describes and characterizes her "branding" and strategy.

Then, we have the confusing, "Technically, l didn't sleep with POTUS (from) 12 years ago ... "

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/20/politics/stormy-daniels-polygraph-donald-trump/index.html 

As classically said, "This too will pass".

l feel sorry for the First Lady.

He's calling up the National Guard to go guard the border with Mexico. Doesn't matter to him that there's no emergency, this isn't what these people signed up for. They have families and careers. Trump's plan is a great way to reduce reenlistment and turn the military against him. 

I say again, Trump's presidency is an act of sabotage against the United States.

Nothing ever went forward with those proposed talks, and then more discord was sown in other areas. 

I'm glad I'm not in the military anymore.

Since Trump as President called up the Nat'l Guard they become federalized. As such, like when Obuma did it, under the Posse Comitatis Act they cannot have any police powers and can only do "support operations" such as lookouts.

Do you think he knows that? I don't. 

It's a waste of taxpayer money to call up the National Guard, and it's ruining people's careers and breaking apart families for no good reason. It's going to cause people to not reenlist, and they won't be there when or if we actually need them.

There is a sizable "liberation convoy" coming up from Central America.

A.k.a. "migrant caravan"  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5566223/1-200-illegal-Central-American-migrants-march-US.html  date 31March18

and https://www.pressherald.com/2018/04/03/migrant-caravan-comes-to-a-halt-in-mexico/ dated 03April18 where you notice garbage such as "stations of the cross" and other symbols are an attempt to make this a holy crusade.

Note: by chance l saw part of the 700 Club Thursday morning and the anti-American clerics are trying to endorse this self-righteous notion.

@hasanhh "stations of the Cross" is a Catholic lent ritual involving meditation on the story of the crucification and recitation of prayers. It has nothing to do with crusades. 

Mexico is not an imminent threat and sending troops to their border is an act of aggression. Furthermore, we don't need armed troops against a van load or two of unarmed laborers seeking work. The existing border checkpoints will be sufficient to let them know the United States is no longer "the promised land" and send them on their way.

I think crusade can be used in a very figurative manner. For example, the poster alimohamad40 could be said to have been on a crusade for mutah.

Uhty, you didn't understand my point. This convoy of potential illegal entries has their own "stations of" for this pretending this is somehow a "holy endeavor". All socio-political groups have a 'cause' only the evilgelicals starting and running this (yes, the American churches are behind it) call this kind of garbage "crusades".

Whatever they want to call it, this waste of our taxpayer money is a disgrace.  Do you understand that the National Guard is meant to be used only for state or national emergencies?  They have careers and families outside of the military. This is not only a waste of money, it also will cause people to get out of the National Guard in droves, being unavailable if and when we actually have an emergency.  A bunch of religious folks driving up in cars from South America are NOT a national emergency.

Yes it is. A foreign invasion.

Besides, as of yesterday, except for the 400 to 500 men who jumped on a train, and the 400 turned back by Mexico, they are on buses. Who paid for those?

Are they armed?  Are they aggressive in any way?  Don't we already have border checkpoints?  If they don't have valid visas they will be turned away, no need to rip apart families, ruin careers, and waste taxpayer money for these "religious invaders".

Preventing economic sabotage and Subversion.
