Donald Trump arrived at the APEC summit with a bit of swagger. Though already a naturally tall and broad-shouldered man, he stood bigger than life among his world leader contemporaries as a petulant Establishment Media did all it could to downplay the aura of strength that followed Mr. Trump everywhere he went. Gone was the rapid gun-chewing insecurity that marked Barack Obama’s participation in such gatherings. There was no apologizing for America’s past. No remarking how the United States owed others. No hiding from the fact that in an increasingly volatile and complicated world, America remains the one true superpower.And
Excellent article. A Must Read for everyone. Like #1, read it, love what it says, love what Trump thinks of America and pass it on. Thanks for posting. Just saw Biden talking about nationalism. Someone needs to send this to him. America first does not mean we want everyone else to be underneath us. It means we want you to walk beside us.
Exactly, #2 - not only Make America Great Again, but Make Britain Great Again and Make Japan Great Again and Make Italy Great Again, and so forth. We want what we have (freedom) to be experienced by all.
The fact that the president set down a practical moral code for business with foreign nations is great. Not only did he call for following the rules ´faithfully´ but also for open markets unhindered by government planners. And his call for open shipping lanes & free/clear air routes was a direct hit at China which is threatening regional sea lanes. Was that remark about Prez. Obama chewing gum at these conference- was that literally or figuratively?
“individual rights, and freedom of navigation and overflight, including open shipping lanes."
Open shipping lanes is a requirement for China to function. If the Straits of Hormuz were closed or shipping lanes to markets in Europe or the USA were interrupted, China would be devastated. So, China may want to close access by shipping to parts of Asia. But, they still rely on the USA keeping the rest of he World´s sea lanes flowing.
FTA: "Some of the greatest cesspools against American values come not from places like Japan, Vietnam, or India, but rather the American media, Congress, and U.S. universities. It is a form of collective self-loathing that leaves the world shaking its head at us."
It´s true, and it is a disease we need to eliminate if we are to survive as a free and prosperous nation.
Dear President Trump: Great job on your recent trip. Love your sweet little grand daughter singing that Chinese song. One other little issue I wish you would settle. Take back the Panama Canal that President Idiot Carter gave away. Just saying.
Trump not only loves this Country, he understands it. That is something that BO, with all his "Won-ness" is still unable to do. Trump understands what free markets can do, bring prosperity to all, including better healthcare, better environmental conditions, better infrastructure, better education, and on and on. Why? Because free and prosperous (prosperity blossoms from freedom) nations can afford to do EVERYTHING better. Trump is trying to realign government to get out of the way. For all the talk under BO about the US losing it´s competitive edge the nations of the world knew the truth. If our own government stopped strangling us, the potential of this Country, as expressed in its founding principles, is unlimited. And, as stated in the article, the US is happy to share as long as all are on equal footing, because we KNOW that the foundational principles of America are great for all.
Reading this article I almost jumped up and shouted I was so excited. And it occured to me that Trump has one thing that almost no president had. And it´s his knowledge of just how trade and working with other countries actually works. And works for the best for both countries. And I ask you. How much about industry does Obozo have?
President is everything that Obama was NOT--smart, even-handed, proud of his country, decisive, forward-thinking, unbeholding to any/ all special-interest groups and ever hard at work for We The People. And with wife/First Lady Melania, restoring dignity to the White House.
I don´t think this made Xi uncomfortable, he´s probably relieved. He knows exactly where Trump stands. I doubt he knew exactly where Obama and Hillary stood. Don´t underestimate Xi´s ability to negotiate. He´s done trade deals all over the world. I think the two will get along well.
President Trump was the first U.S. president to get invited to dine at the Forbidden City, children were waving Chinese and American flags, Trumps approval rating is going up, pretty successful trip I´d say.

It was massively unreported in 2014 when Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took control of the Gaza Sinai border and began removing the Hamas Terror tunnels. As we watched the local media reporting, it was almost unbelievable how western media were ignoring the events. (example) A full one-third of all homes on the Gaza border with Egypt contained Hamas tunnels used to smuggle weapons. One of the discovered tunnels was 1.5 miles long (link). In order to deal with the scale of the issue, al-Sisi ordered the removal of houses to facilitate an almost mile-wide buffer zone. During the effort
Mark Osborne writes at ABC News that Republican Senator Jeff Flake was caught on a hot mic criticizing President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore: Sen. Jeff Flake, a frequent sparring partner of President Donald Trump, continues to make enemies in his own party after calling the GOP “toast” while unaware he was still on a live mic. Flake, R-Ariz., was at a tax reform event in Mesa, Arizona on Friday night when he was caught bashing the president in a conversation with friend, Mesa Mayor John Giles. “If we become the party of Roy Moore and Donald
Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones holds extreme views on abortion that are not in tune with the pro-life state of Alabama, but he’s apparently working to soften them. In a recent interview with AL.com, Jones walked back his prior comments on abortion in which he refused any restrictions on abortion up until the baby’s day of birth. Now, however, Jones says he wants to “be clear” about his stance on abortion. Jones told AL.com he was the victim of an “attack” since his MSNBC interview in which he said he becomes a “right-to-lifer” only after a baby is born. “Those comments, everybody wants
University of California regents meeting on Thursday admonished UC President Janet Napolitano for agreeing to a plan that led to interference in a state audit on the operation of her office. Her approval of a plan in which top aides would preview campus administrators’ confidential survey responses “reflected poor judgment and set in motion a course of conduct that the Board of Regents finds unacceptable,” board chairman George Kieffer said in a statement after the regents met behind closed doors for nearly five hours. But the regents quickly and unanimously agreed to support Napolitano’s continued leadership, Kieffer said after the
Could Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston be in line for a six-game suspension? As first reported by Talal Ansari of BuzzFeed, a female Uber driver alleges that Winston “grabbed her crotch” at around 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, 2016, in Scottsdale, Ariz. “Kate,” the pseudonym BuzzFeed used to identify the woman, had accepted a pickup of a passenger who appears to have been partying with other men in downtown Scottsdale. When the Uber arrived, the men told Kate that she would be driving someone famous—Winston—and they then explained that Winston was a well-known NFL player. A person whom Kate
Some of the voices — like Hillary Clinton -- offering semi-defenses of Al Franken have done so by noting that Franken has acknowledged misconduct toward radio host Leeann Tweeden, while Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Trump have not admitted guilt for the allegations against them. (Snip) Other Franken allies have said similar things. But has Franken acknowledged the misconduct alleged by Tweeden? The answer is no. Franken has acknowledged the actions in a photo in which he mimics groping a sleeping Tweeden. But Franken has not admitted Tweeden´s more serious charge that he physically forced himself on her
San Antonio, TX - The Texas school district that recently voted to re-imagine a campus named for Confederate General Robert E. Lee with a more welcoming 21st Century nomenclature, unveiled that the projected costs to re-brand hovers around $300,000. North East Independent School District Superintendent Brian Gottardy presented a report to the trustees Monday estimating a $299,098 price tag to rename Lee High. However, this is not a complete makeover. He said that would have totaled more than $1.3 million and included changing the school’s mascot and spirit colors. Breitbart Texas reported that North East ISD trustees voted in October to change Robert E.
The European Union (EU) could withhold Britain’s €5 billion budget rebate, with negotiators issuing a two-week deadline for meeting their unwavering demand for a €60 billion (£53.6 billion) Brexit ‘divorce bill.’ The late Baroness Margret Thatcher famously secured the rebate in 1984, after arguing Britain’s contribution to EU coffers was disproportionately large as the UK received less in agriculture subsidies. Sources have told the Telegraph the future of the €5 billion (£4.46 billion) rebate has not yet been settled with the EU and it could potentially be withheld when the UK leaves the bloc in March 2019. So far, British
The 22-year-old woman who was brutally raped by a man who once interned for Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), and who reached out to the lawmaker about passing federal legislation to help sexual assault victims, now says she wants a new sponsor following the revelations about his own sexual misconduct. The ABC News affiliate in Minneapolis, Minnesota, reported: The bill was designed to provide funding for training first responders on ways of interviewing victims who have been traumatized. Just last month, Abby Honold stood side-by-side with Franken at a press conference announcing the bill. Then came the bombshell report Thursday morning. Leeann Tweeden, a journalist who
President Obama weaponized the federal government to punish his political enemies and further the agendas of his supporters. This climate of government intimidation and manipulation culminated in the 2016 Election that saw the FBI attacking one presidential nominee, Donald Trump, and favoring another, Hillary Clinton. Clinton was of course Mr. Obama’s former Secretary of State. Trump was a political outsider who didn’t even have the full support of the GOP but did have the support of tens of millions of voters both Republican and Democrat alike. This popularity made Donald Trump the single greatest threat to the D.C. status-quo and
American Majority founder Ned Ryun talked about Roy Moore and the Alabama Senate race with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon and SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, broadcast live from the Restoration Weekend event. Bannon asked Ryun about celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred’s involvement in the Roy Moore case, representing a woman who accuses Moore of assaulting her in 1977 when she was 16 years old. Ryan said Allred is “basically a human vulture when you look back at some of the things she’s been involved in.” “Remember the incident with Arnold Schwarzenegger?” Ryun asked. “She brought
LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China for shoplifting last week, said "who?" when asked about President Trump´s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump´s role. "What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” (Snip) Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses."
Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy. (Snip for video)[Clinton] said she found “horrifying” the intimation he would
One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she
Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, 76, has been diagnosed with Parkinson´s disease. Jackson made the announcement in a letter and said he first noticed physical changes about three years ago. The disease also affected his father. Parkinson´s is an incurable neurological disorder that can cause tremors, stiffness and difficulty balancing, walking and coordinating movement. ´My family and I began to notice changes about three years ago,´ Jackson wrote in a statement. ´After a battery of tests, my physicians identified the issue as Parkinson´s disease, a disease that bested my father.´ ´Recognition of the effects of this disease on me has been painful, and
NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump
NEW YORK — Kirsten Gillibrand is having a moment, whether she meant to or not. Going where no other prominent Democrat had before on Thursday evening by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the New York senator and potential 2020 presidential contender yet again found herself the face of a national conversation with the potential to dominate headlines and divide her party. At a time Democrats are desperate to keep the focus on accusations against President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Gillibrand’s stand shocked even some of her close allies. They
A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.
Apparently, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un had a unique idea for farmers when they fertilize their crops, and it’s causing a wave of parasitic infections across the country: Use human excrement.According to Yahoo News, in 2014 Kim Jong-un instructed farmers to mix human feces with animal waste and organic compost to make fertilizer for their fields. Yahoo notes, “With a lack of livestock to provide animal fertilizer, agriculturists poured the human excrement, also known as ‘night soil,’ on their fields.”Choi Min-Ho, a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine who specializes in parasites, told Reuters, “Although we do not
In a textbook example of why Facebook users should pause for a moment of reflection before they post, a Democratic candidate for Ohio governor sought Friday to get ahead of any potential sex scandals by announcing the details of his relationships with 50 women. The sexcapade diary was in response to the Al Franken scandal, and included a hayloft romp with a "gorgeous blonde" and a fling with a "red head from Cleveland." “Now that the dogs of war are calling for the head of Senator Al Franken I believe it is time to speak up on behalf of all heterosexual males,”
The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated. (Again, you read that nonsense correctly.) Only the government can relate nonsense with a straight face. Here is the back story. When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director Jim Comey last
WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those
Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a white house briefing today after a week of explosive sexual allegations against Judge Roy Moore, Democrat Al Sharpton and more Hollywood stars.During the briefing American Urban Radio Networks correspondent asked her about Hillary Clinton’s worried remarks on President Trump. It was a lob ball and Sanders hit it out of the park. April Ryan: I was talking to Hillary Clinton today about the president’s past and she said, “Look I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present and the future.” What do you say to that as it
