Trump’s NATO Successes

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 12/4/2019 4:52:21 AM

As the Democrats toil to make their impeachment effort look like something other than a partisan smear job and legal scam, President Trump is at the NATO leaders’ meeting in London, observing the 70th anniversary of that organization, and is able to take some pleasure in the success of his foreign policy. His enemies, who have swarmed in the media every day since he declared his candidacy for the Republican nomination — first in derisive hilarity, then in a rising state of alarm, and finally in seething hatred — claim that he has alienated allies, swaggered absurdly, and generally brought the United States into disrepute while accomplishing

The idea of adding capitalistic democratic nations in Asia is excellent. I believe bringing Israel in would be an absolutely brilliant move. In fact, NATO should welcome any democratic nation into the fold. After that, lets just get rid of the United Nations. They are a waste of assets and valuable real estate in New York City.

"Macron’s talk about individual nations fending for themselves" Yes, they did so well against the Nazi's and they are now a shadow of their strength back then. France's is a Hollywood military, good for the show but nothing else. In the long run, the US would be better off to withdraw from the UN and let it collapse and expand and alter NATO into a broader peace keeping group. Trump is smart to not bother trying to reform the pathetic, corrupt, and useless UN and focus on more useful pursuits.

FTA - "President Trump recognizes that pushing Turkey into the arms of Russia, and Russia into the arms of China, would be terrible mistakes. The two greatest conceivable strategic threats to the U.S. are Russia aligning with China, so that tens of millions of Chinese move to Siberia and tap its resources as a concession power, paying Russia a royalty and rivaling North America as a resources treasure-house; and Turkey joining with Iran to impinge upon Israel and the Arabs, especially Saudi Arabia and Egypt." This scenario presents the greatest threat to the western world and should be America's highest foreign policy priority. Of concern is the latest announcement by China, Russia, and Iran to conduct joint military exercises. The President understands. But, the dims sure don't think so. Their impeachment circus is more important due to their myopic lust for power.

In the last decade or so, the EU has pushed Turkey into the arms of Iran enabling the mullahs to infiltrate more men and arms into Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Therefore, I am of two minds when it comes to NATO. One, I agree with Black that a strong alliance can prevent the Turks further drift to the East, OTOH I am also tired of the US having to take crap from Euro-trash socialists while trying to bail them out of problems they are responsible for. As long as its in our interests Trump has my support to strengthen the alliance to accomplish our goals all the while holding our collective nose.

God bless President Trump. His wit along with his steadfastness in the face of such opposition are a source of happy joy to me. I appreciate Conrad Black's eye on the proceedings, as well. (Mrs. Trump was breathtaking in her quiet beauty!)

Expand NATO? Aren't we soaked enough already as the World's Greatest Mercenary force to Europe's effetes? It's time to pull a France and defend our own interests...let the others sweat the vaunted, much feared "Russian threat." When the invasion starts we can send ally Germany the same aid it gave us in the last conflict - a fleet of schnitzel wagons and cooks.

Interesting, but not surprising, to see the other 'world leaders' snarking behind Trump's back, much like employees do about their boss, and our left media does to Trump all the time. Trump is a doer and a problem solver, while those other 'world leaders' appear to just like to prance around in the limelight.

Getting more countries to financially support NATO sounds like a good thing but I am not sure a powerful NATO is all that beneficial to the US. Where does all of that money go? I don't know anything about a NATO army, navy or air force, does one exist? If a NATO armed force exists who controls what they do? I suspect most of the money presently goes to administration--that doesn't make me feel any safer.

Pa. Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, charged

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, a West Philadelphia Democrat, said Wednesday that she would resign after prosecutors charged her with stealing more than $500,000 from her own nonprofit and spending it on family vacations, designer clothing, furs, personal bills — and her bid for the legislature. State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell engaged in “brazen corruption” and systematically tried to cover up her crimes by falsifying records and financial statements. “Her theft knew no bounds," Shapiro said as he announced that his office had charged the first-term lawmaker with theft, perjury, tampering with public records, and related crimes Wednesday morning.

This year, the annual holiday tradition of deriding Melania Trump for her Christmas decorations coincided with the NATO summit in London where she also has been excoriated for her fashion choices. As if that’s not enough, the vicious impeachment game yesterday extended to her beloved 13-year-old son Barron, when Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan used the child to belittle the president during House Judiciary Committee hearings: “While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

It is tempting to describe Wednesday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee as a farce. But it was worse than that. It made a travesty of fairness. With Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, there was no real chance that President Trump would be treated equitably. After all, Nadler’s confederate and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had already obliterated any semblance of due process in impeachment hearings before his committee. The Schiff hearings were a lollapalooza of hearsay, opinion and grotesque speculation.

The Stanford Law School professor who sparked backlash from the White House Wednesday after evoking the president’s minor son during the first day of the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry had previously stated that she once crossed the street just to avoid passing one of President Trump's hotels. Pamela Karlan, who was one of three witnesses who testified before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday, previously told a 2017 American Constitution Society panel that she couldn’t stomach walking past the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Failed politician Hillary Clinton has officially become an easy punchline for even the dullest of the establishment Democrats running for president in 2020. Sen. Michael Bennet (D., Colo.), the son of a former State Department official and alum of the elite St. Albans School in Washington, D.C., is apparently still running in the Democratic presidential primary. To remind us of that fact, Bennet tweeted out the following video from the campaign trail in Iowa.(Snip for tweet) "I'm just chillin' in Cedar Rapids, listening to Ave Maria," Bennet says in his signature slow-motion monotone, referencing one of the Clinton campaign's failed efforts in 2016 to make the notoriously despised candidate

In his impeachment preview, Scott notes that on Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee will begin its hearings by taking testimony from four law professors: Pam Karlan, Noah Feldman, Michael Gerhardt, and Jonathan Turley. It’s easy to ridicule leading off with law professors, and it’s true that doing so isn’t the best way to capture the public’s interest. Logically, however, it makes sense to begin the hearings by discussing the standard for impeaching a president. One can then analyze the evidence through the prism of the standard. But this assumes that the discussion of the standard isn’t filtered

Life is interesting, isn’t it? And when the Democrats roll out “the Resistance,” their pathetic public corruption of our social contract, life also takes on aspects of shamefulness and hypocrisy. Take, for example, Act Two of their seasonal theatrical production, the Phantom of the Congress. We the audience now return from intermission to find Adam Schiff, the villain of Act One, missing and replaced by Jerrold Nadler, who seems less despicable because, beneath the surface, he is oh-so-vulnerable, oh-so-compromised, and oh-so-neutered. We wonder what has transpired during the period that the intermission passed over: Legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drugs and to get control over health care?

“This is beyond anything Nixon did.” Those words declared by Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff capture the vast constitutional challenge for the House Judiciary Committee as it heads toward its announced hearing on the impeachment of President Trump. There is still disagreement, to use a Clintonian twist, of what “this” is. Yet whatever “this” is, it is not Nixonian, at least not yet. Schiff seems to struggle to reduce the harsh allegations against Richard Nixon in order to elevate those against Donald Trump. Schiff explained that Watergate was merely “a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters” while now “what we are talking about here is the withholding

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has 30 days to ask his country’s legislators for immunity on corruption charges after a copy of his indictment was handed over to the Knesset on Monday, starting the clock on what's likely to be a lengthy legal battle with immense global implications. A three-judge panel is gearing up to hear the unprecedented case in Jerusalem district court, while Israel’s attorney general is expected to call more than 300 witnesses -- including billionaires James Packer and Sheldon Adelson. If Netanyahu asks Israel’s legislative body for immunity, however, the trial could be put on hold for months, according to the Jerusalem Post.

This Friday, the top four NCAA Division III women’s soccer teams face off in the national semifinals. One of the final four teams’ goalkeepers, Isa Berardo, is a male transgender playing as a female for Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. Not surprisingly, the male goalie has dominated the field against opposing female players, giving his own a chance to win the national championship thanks to his physical advantages in a key position. This is increasingly happening throughout women’s sports, at all levels from elementary school through professional competitions. It’s creating not equality, but inequality.

Trump said the wall had been tested by “world-class mountain climbers,” and referenced “pictures of young people climbing walls with drugs on their back--a lot of drugs.”

California Sen. Kamala Harris should never have run for president in the first place. Her ambition far exceeded her ability. She hadn’t yet established herself in the U.S. Senate. And she hadn’t exactly excelled in her previous job as California’s attorney general. There wasn’t much of a record worth bragging about on the campaign trail. After being elected to the Senate in a 2016 cakewalk, she should have spent the next three years focused exclusively on representing Californians in Congress, helping the state on such vital issues as water development, environmental protection, healthcare and homelessness. But people around her — political advisors and her sister Maya Harris

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, is suing Martin's family and Florida prosecutors, claiming that they engineered false evidence in the homicide trial. The lawsuit to be filed Wednesday in Polk County Circuit Court seeks $100million in civil damages for defamation, abuse of civil process and conspiracy. It alleges that the prosecution's key witness in Zimmerman's 2013 murder trial, Rachel Jeantel, was an imposter coached by the family and their lawyers. The lead defendant in the suit is Sybrina Fulton, Martin's mother. Fulton gained national notoriety as an advocate for social justice
