Top U.S. Military Officer Says Transgender Soldier Policy Won't Change – Yet

This Marine is insubordinate. It isn't up to Dunford or Mattis. They have been given the Order by the President and refuses to carry it out.

(WASHINGTON) — The nation's top military officer says U.S. policy on transgender individuals serving in uniform has not — and will not — change until Defense Secretary Jim Mattis receives the president's policy direction and Mattis determines how to implement it.

Gen. Joseph Dunford is chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dunford made the statement in a note Thursday to all service chiefs, commanders and enlisted military leaders.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the note.

Trump urged to use recess appointment to replace Sessions -- is that possible?

Is President Donald Trump trying to force out Jeff Sessions as attorney general so he can "recess appoint" someone to the job who would fire Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller?

Sources familiar with the President's thinking tell CNN that he is being urged by some associates that a recess appointment is an option worth pursuing in order to avoid a messy confirmation process in the short term.
Although there are multiple political and procedural road blocks, the theory, if he could find a way to pull it off, would be to install a new attorney general while the Senate is in recess, which would allow that person to stay in place through 2018.

Nikki Haley Seeks Ancient Neocon Wisdom From Demonic Walrus Moustache John Bolton

We are all deeply nostalgic for the days of yore—the days before Nikki Haley was muzzled by the State Department—when our favorite South Carolina peach made daily headlines with her barely literate, Facebook-rant diplomacy.

Of course, in accordance with official Trump policy, Haley is still allowed to preach from the Bible of Bomb Iran; so her status as a rogue psycho has been downgraded to "standard psycho".

But there's always room for improvement.

Anti-White journalist Jonathan Freedland has written a thinly veiled assassination fantasy targeting Donald Trump.

The British-Jewish journalist, infamous for hailing the demographic eclipse of the British people in their own homeland as “a kind of triumph,” has devoted the last twelve months of his miserable journalistic life to neurotic attacks on the Trump presidency. His hyperbolic writings at the Guardian, while making little original contribution to the intellectual debate over the progress of the Trump administration, have instead revealed much about the paranoid preoccupations of Freedland, the Left, and elements of the organized Jewish community.

US Congress following Israeli anti-Iran agenda: Pundit

The US House of Representatives has voted overwhelmingly to impose new sanctions against Iran. The lower chamber of Congress approved the bill on Tuesday. The move came days after the Donald Trump administration certified, for the second time, to Congress that Iran was in compliance of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

Press TV has interviewed Scott Rickard, a political analyst and former American intelligence linguist from Tampa, Florida, and Jim Walsh, a research associate with MIT Security Studies Program at Massachusetts Institute from Boston, for their thoughts about the imposition of new sanctions against Iran.

Rickard lashed out at US lawmakers, saying the financial backers of the congressmen are forcing them to approve anti-Iran bills.

Scaramucci Singles Out Obama's "Political Holdovers" As White House Leakers

Terrorists Control Less than 10sq/km of Area in Arsal, Hezbollah on Verge of Great Victory

Only 7sq/km of land has remained under the control of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) in the mountainous region at Lebanon-Syria Border, a military source said, adding that the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters are now on the verge of capturing the entire of Arsal heights.

The source confirmed that only three heights stretching over 7sq/km of area are under Al-Nusra Front's control in Arsal heights, adding the resistance forces will soon reach the regions of Wadi Hamid and al-Malahi after capturing the terrorist-held three heights.

Once, Hezbollah seizes control over the three heights, it will complete liberation of Arsal heights, the source said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe this is the reason for the sudden White House concern over Hezbollah; they are speeding up the end of the war in Syria!

Are America’s Wars Just and Moral?

“One knowledgeable official estimates that the CIA-backed fighters may have killed or wounded 100,000 Syrian soldiers and their allies,” writes columnist David Ignatius.

Given that Syria’s prewar population was not 10 percent of ours, this is the equivalent of a million dead and wounded Americans. What justifies America’s participation in this slaughter?

The World's Largest Humanitarian Crisis Is Basically Being Blacked Out by Western Media

The Arab world’s richest country, Saudi Arabia, went to war against the Arab world’s poorest country in 2015. In this period, Yemen – with a population of 25 million – has been substantially destroyed. The United Nations has been tracking the scale of the atrocity. The numbers are bewildering. Close to 20,000 people have died in this war, at least half of them civilians. The numbers of those injured could not be tabulated as half of Yemen’s hospitals and medical centers do not work. This means there is no accurate measure of those who come in to be treated.

$21.8 Mil in DHS Conferences Exposed after Trump Kills Rule Forcing Fed Agencies to Report Conference Spending

Weeks after the Trump administration abolished a rule requiring federal agencies to report conference spending, a breakdown of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) multi-million-dollar conference tab illustrates the need to keep the measure in place. The mammoth agency created after 9/11 to prevent another terrorist attack fails miserably to protect the southern border, to bust dangerous visa overstays, and to remove criminal illegal aliens — but it knows how to throw a party for employees and “stakeholders.” It also knows how to hide a chunk of the tab from taxpayers and the Trump administration is facilitating the process, laughably enough, asserting that agencies have tight internal controls.

Includes full text of the official report presented directly thereafter to the Russian Media.

The third issue is cyber security which was understandably given considerable attention. The presidents agreed that this area is becoming ever more dangerous. There are numerous threats emerging in cyber space, including a terrorist threat, threats in other areas of organised crime, such threats to the normal functioning of societies as child pornography, pedophilia, the so-called suicide networks. Of course, President Trump also mentioned that certain circles in the United States keep on spinning the issue of Russia’s interference in the US elections even though they are unable to prove that.

Fake News: The Scouts Loved The President's Speech-Trump’s political speech to Scouts inspires parental outrage

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s fiery speech at the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia has infuriated parents and former scouts.

Standing before thousands of school-aged Scouts, Trump began with a bit of profanity Monday night and then went on to rage for more than half an hour against the media and other perceived political enemies.

Trump was cheered by the crowd, but his comments put an organization that studiously avoids political conflict in an awkward position.

Sean Hannity: America faces a turning point as anti-Trump forces attempt coup

Here are the five dangers faced by President Trump, and indeed all Americans:

The alt-left, destroy-Trump, propaganda media that has been lying to America for 11 months nonstop. They push their Trump-Russia collusion theory, despite no evidence whatsoever.

The so-called deep state, entrenched liberal bureaucrats and Obama loyalists who selectively leak information to damage the president and anyone associated with him.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, which mission creep has transformed into an out-of-control, political witch hunt.

The cumulative effect of all this manufactured turmoil. It is putting President Trump's agenda in jeopardy, which ends up directly impacting all of us.

An all-out effort to override the will of the American people and change the results of a presidential election. This is now creating a national security crisis.

No deal! EU up in arms over US - Russia sanctions

Brussels is preparing to retaliate if Washington adopts new sanctions against Russia without taking EU interests into account, according to a memo obtained by the Financial Times.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has requested an urgent review of Brussels' options for retaliation in the event that European energy companies and other business were to be targeted by the new anti-Russian sanctions being proposed by the US Congress.

The new sanctions' targets do include restrictions in the energy sector, and specifically target the Nord Stream 2 project, a joint venture involving Russian energy giant Gazprom and energy companies from Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK to bring Russian natural gas to Western Europe via a pipeline in the Baltic Sea. The bill explicitly threatens to target European companies working with Russia on the project.

Trump unleashes long Twitter tirade day after staff shakeup

President Donald Trump embarked on an early-morning Twitter barrage Saturday that blasted “obstructionist” Democrats, complained about “intelligence leaks,” and called for investigations into “the many Hillary Clinton and Comey crimes.”

“ObamaCare is dead and the Democrats are obstructionists, no ideas or votes, only obstruction,” he wrote at 8:23 am. “It is solely up to the 52 Republican Senators!”

The 10-post tweetstorm, issued over two hours, touched on a half-dozen disparate topics, including the ongoing health care debate in Congress, headlines in the New York Times and Washington Post, and Clinton’s “deleted (& acid washed) … 33,000 e-mails”.

That I think will pass overwhelmingly again in the senate with a veto proof majority," Sen. John Thune (South Dakota) told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."

“I think it is in his best interest for a lot of reasons to sign it, and I believe he will," he added.

Is THIS The Plan A Senior Republican Congressman Said Would “Take Trump Out”?

Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to investigate (likely bogus) allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia/and obstruction of justice.

Mueller has since expanded the scope of that investigation to include Donald Trump’s private/personal business records – a situation that is said to have enraged the President.

Rumors are now rampant that POTUS Trump is considering having Mueller fired, something which would set off a political war the likes of which D.C. has not seen since Watergate – one which many feel would expedite Mr. Trump’s removal from office.

If Trump continues to fight he could risk losing everything. His family legacy would be in tatters.

The alternative would be a deal with the very Deep State government that would see him destroyed. Resign and go back to his former live – a life that would be greatly damaged but not beyond some measure of repair.

In doing so, Arango paints the U.S. as a noble, freedom-loving nation on a mission to improve the lives of average Iraqis, and Iran as a sinister imperial force working to expand its sphere of influence across the region.

FALSEHOOD IN WAR-TIME: Propaganda Lies of the First World War by Arthur Ponsonby MP, 1928

"The use of the weapon of falsehood is more necessary in a country where military conscription is not the law of the land than in countries where the manhood of the nation is automatically drafted into the Army, Navy, or Air Service. The public can be worked up emotionally by sham ideals. A sort of collective hysteria spreads and rises until finally it gets the better of sober people and reputable newspapers".

The Cannabis Industry Apocalypse

Here is the plan.Sessions plans to seize the assets of the big Cannabis companies and use it to bust more people.

Another important clue to their plans comes from a recent DOJ announcement that the DOJ will no longer be donating part of the proceeds that it receives from civil asset forfeitures to a variety of non-profit groups but will instead be keeping all the proceeds for itself to be used for increased staffing and greater enforcement.

In order to address the lack of budget necessary to start large scale enforcement, the Christie Plan lays out the following actions:

Issue Subpoenas to the twenty-nine states that have legalized cannabis, in any form, and demand their entire set of licensing records, for growers, dispensers, doctors, and users.
Use conventional DOJ budgets to hire new DOJ staff to fight the states that refuse to turn over their licensing records. The DOJ will sue each state, in order or revenue, for compliance.

'Maddow's Dots May Never Connect': Left-Wing Author Blasts Trump-Russia Narrative

While many on the left continue to accuse President Trump and his administration of colluding with the Russians, one well-known progressive thinker said such actions hurt their cause.

Author Max Blumenthal said he's skeptical of the Russia narrative, remarking that "Rachel Maddow's dots may never connect."

What’s Behind the Pentagon’s Push to Build New Bases in Iraq and Syria?

The White House, responding to pressure from the Pentagon, is asking Congress to grant permission for the construction of more “temporary” US military bases in Iraq and Syria.

In what is seen as a deepening of the Pentagon’s commitment to waging war in the devastated region, US Defense Secretary James Mattis has convinced the administration of President Donald Trump to seek permission from Congress to expand military operations into Iraq and Syria, even as Daesh is being destroyed and Mosul has been retaken.

The new “temporary facilities” will increase the likelihood of a longer, more expensive and ultimately more deadly war in a region that is suffering the most dire human rights crisis since the end of World War II.

A MERCENARY-LED SURGE WON’T SOLVE AFGHANISTAN

Private military contractors have spotted an opportunity as America’s longest war grinds on. Here’s a crazy idea floating around Washington these days, outlandish even by today’s outlandish standards: The United States should hire a mercenary army to “fix” Afghanistan, a country where we’ve been at war since 2001, spending billions along the way. The big idea here is that they could extricate U.S. soldiers from this quagmire, and somehow solve it

America’s War Against International Civil Society Is Permanent

This week, ISIL lost its medieval caliphate in Mosul. The fringe terrorist organization is also fast losing the remaining places it has occupied in Syria. It will soon be relegated to the ash heap of history. But it may not matter much if the US Empire of Bases decides to stay and entertain supposedly to fight terrorism.

Return of Pentagon Mercenaries Worries US Active Duty Military

During the time that U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster are reviewing the U.S. military policy in Afghanistan, The New York Times ran a story on July 10, 2017 that exposed a threat that will upend U.S. defense strategy and return it to a bitter past. The Times story was centered around the following paragraph:

«Erik D. Prince, a founder of the private security firm Blackwater Worldwide, and Stephen A. Feinberg, a billionaire financier who owns the giant military contractor DynCorp International, have developed proposals to rely on contractors instead of American troops in Afghanistan at the behest of Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, and Jared Kushner, his senior adviser and son-in-law, according to people briefed on the conversations».

Trump Hints at Abandoning Key Qatar Military Base in Talks With Saudi King

The latest in a series of moves by President Trump that appeared to throw a wrench into State Department efforts to calm the Qatar blockade situation saw him telling the Saudi King today that the US could well just abandon their largest military base in the Middle East, the al-Udeid Airbase in Qatar.

This is a hugely important base for the US, and that’s a big part of why State Department officials have been so desperate to try to resolve the dispute. President Trump, however, has treated this base with relative ambivalence, and in his talk with King Salman today said he was confident other countries in the region would “gladly” build the US a replacement base if they abandoned Qatar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please: a word here; countries with which the US has carefully cultivated relationships are not, please, to be thrown around lightly, like some assets with absolutely no meaning or value; we are talking about thinking before making a move, which apparently, did not happen, prior to your conversation with Prince Salman yesterday.

And if the US government suddenly morphs from friend to frenemy to enemy with Qatar, how is this potentially going to influence other critical relationships in the Middle East we are working on developing, in terms of the US government having, proverbially, thrown Qatar under a bus?!?

Coulter: Republican Obstructionists 'Hate Trump Every Bit As Much As MSNBC Does'

Coulter said, “I do think we’re getting a little Republican obstructionism with Trump as well. Come on. It takes 51 votes to confirm a nominee, so they put in, what, these blue slips and say, ‘no I’m holding.’ A one-person filibuster? No. McConnell should say you’ve taken this too far. We’re not going to let you put in your blue slips or yellow slips or whatever they call them and have one person stop a nominee. In one case, Thom Tillis, he is going precisely against the Trump agenda. He refuses to confirm the head of the Immigration Service unless he can get a bunch more cheap foreign workers for the Chamber of Commerce.”

CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

Ever since the tragic and stupid launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria by the United States took place in April, the entire incident has been represented as a one-man show by the corporate and even by the alternative media. The corporate press, which virtually never gives Trump a break on any issue real or imagined, was strangely approving of The Donald after his war crime while his detractors in the alternative media were presenting the act as that of a madman who is frighteningly close to the red button...

Backing up my own suspicions is the current Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo. In a recent speech to the INSA Leadership Dinner on July 11, Pompeo was giving a typical dinner speech about the harrowing world of the intelligence community, how tough it is to have his position, the importance of it, etc. During the course of the speech, however, Pompeo let a very interesting tidbit slip...

Trump's biggest mistake – not going after Hillary

When Donald Trump said he would not pursue legal action against Hillary Clinton after he won the election, the majority of his supporters were not happy. After all, what Hillary, her family. and the Clinton Foundation actually did, or were accused of doing through credible evidence, was obviously criminal.

Fast-forward to today, and the onslaught of false Russian collusion accusations against President Trump, and it is obvious why not going after Hillary was a huge mistake.

John McCain WasThe Globalist Point Man In Efforts To Destroy Trump Campaign

Check out this excerpt from a now breaking report by the Daily Mail:

“…McCain dispatched a ‘trusted emissary’ who flew across the Atlantic to meet the source of the documents at an airport that the Guardian did not name.

The aide was instructed to look for a man with a copy of the Financial Times and that’s how the individuals met, with the source taking McCain’s emissary back to his house and giving the American a copy of the documents.

Within 24 hours, the dossier was in Washington, though the contents of the file couldn’t be verified without an investigation.

McCain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him – such as knocking the fact that the longtime senator had been a prisoner of war.

However, McCain decided to hand over the documents to FBI Director James Comey on December 9.

US Forces Could Have Killed Kim Jong-un on July 4 But Didn’t Take the Shot

This is helpful.

The US military generally knows when North Korean missile tests will occur, but of course hasn’t launched a pre-emptive strike to stop one. But it’s “unusual” that the US would allow it to leak that Kim could have been eliminated and wasn’t, Baker explained.

The consultant believes it’s possible Washington allowed the information to leak to show that it doesn’t want to kill Kim at any chance it gets, in hopes that even an olive branch that small could persuade North Korea to slow the pace of its ballistic missile and nuclear program development.

EXCLUSIVE–Polish Govt: Trump’s Perceived ‘Friendliness’ With Russia No Concern After Warsaw Speech

Polish government sources have told Breitbart News the nation’s concerns over President Trump’s relationship with Russia “evaporated” during his recent trip to Warsaw.

The President–who spoke for 35 minutes in the Polish capital last week–still faces claims of “Russian collusion” from the U.S. and British press. Meanwhile, those on the NATO front lines in Europe have declared their belief that the U.S. President will continue to stand with America’s NATO allies.

Speaking to Breitbart News, Sen. Anna Maria Anders, who also serves as the Polish government’s Plenipotentiary for International Dialogue said: “President Trump was incredibly well received. There was a huge amount of excitement and anticipation about his visit and we were not disappointed.

As a storm breaks over Washington, and the details of foreign “collusion” and intrigue over the 2016 presidential election break out into the open, I just happened to be re-reading Gore Vidal’s The Golden Age, a novel set in the run up to World War II in which pretty much the same plot line plays out on the same terrain.
There is Don Junior, the fresh-faced and rather obtuse presidential progeny, who walks straight into the arms of the clownish Bob Goldstone, a former British tabloid journalist and events promoter, who set up the fateful meeting. There is Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who previously worked with Fusion GPS, the dirty tricks firm employed by the Never Trump crowd that came up with the salacious “dirty dossier,” claiming that Trump had been compromised by Russian intelligence.

With Syria not all going to plan, the ultimate target of Iran and the World War III agenda looks to be in overdrive with President Trump continuing the sickening and sychonpantic role of Jewish US Presidents as Jewish whipping boys. How many more American sons and daughters will be sacrificed for Israel before genuine American patriots stand up and refuse orders and arrest the traitors in Congress?

Nikki Haley’s Latest Ravings

Her ravings at the UN and in other public remarks make her appear unhinged.

She’s a diplomatic embarrassment to the office she holds, part of Washington’s lunatic fringe. She contradicts Trump and Tillerson, an unrestrained reckless loose cannon.

Her Sunday remarks on CBS News’ Face the Nation were beginning-to-end bald-faced lies combined with unacceptable threats.

Haley: “…Russia…meddle(d) in the (US) elections…Trump wanted to make sure that President Putin was aware that he was acknowledging it, that he knew it.”

Fact: No meddling occurred. Trump, Putin and Haley know it. Russia’s president clearly explained it in Hamburg and earlier.

Fact: Trump tries having things both ways - at times denying Russian hacking, other times suggesting it occurred.

This move by Trump is not uncommon. He has seemingly flip-flopped since his election campaign on working alongside or against the world’s two other superpowers, Russia and China.

Why Is Nikki Haley Still Trump’s UN Ambassador?

Number one on my little list is Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who is particularly dangerous as she is holding a position where she can do bad things. Haley has been shooting from the lip since she assumed office and, it has become clear, much of what she says goes without any vetting by the Trump administration. It is never clear whether she is speaking for herself or for the White House. That issue has reportedly been dealt with by having the State Department clear in advance her comments on hot button issues, but, if that is indeed the case, the change has been difficult to discern in practice.

Scott Adams: People Who Can’t Recognize Humor (literally)

One of the most mind-boggling discoveries I made while becoming a professional humorist is that a large segment of the general public has no sense of humor.

Some have it, some don’t.

My best estimate is that about a third of the public don’t possess the capacity to even recognize humor when they see it . . . .

He described the nuclear problem as 'serious' to South Korean President Moon Jae-In at a meeting in Hamburg today.

Moon has called for tough sanctions against Kim Jong-un's secretive regime following the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday.

Did John Wayne die of cancer caused by a radioactive movie set?

I'm horrified to have to report this, John, but your girlfriend's claim is only slightly exaggerated. Of the 220 persons who worked on The Conqueror on location in Utah in 1955, 91 had contracted cancer as of the early 1980s and 46 died of it, including stars John Wayne, Susan Hayward, and Agnes Moorehead, and director Dick Powell. Experts say under ordinary circumstances only 30 people out of a group of that size should have gotten cancer. The cause? No one can say for sure, but many attribute the cancers to radioactive fallout from U.S. atom bomb tests in nearby Nevada. The whole ghastly story is told in The Hollywood Hall of Shame by Harry and Michael Medved. But let's start at the beginning.

The Trump administration's approach to traditional American allies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia has been belligerent, nonsensical and highly neurotic. American foreign policy is a complete mess and the only people and country this is inflicting real damage on is the United States.

Trump Warns China He Is Willing to Pressure North Korea on His Own

President Trump, frustrated by China’s unwillingness to lean on North Korea, has told the Chinese leader that the United States is prepared to act on its own in pressuring the nuclear-armed government in Pyongyang, according to senior administration officials.

Mr. Trump’s warning, delivered in a cordial but blunt phone call on Sunday night to President Xi Jinping, came after a flurry of actions by the United States — selling weapons to Taiwan, threatening trade sanctions and branding China for human trafficking — that rankled the Chinese and left little doubt that the honeymoon between the two leaders was over.

After returning from his weekend getaway in Bedminster, N.J., late Monday, Mr. Trump noted on Twitter that North Korea had launched another ballistic missile, which landed in the sea between North Korea and Japan. He suggested it was time for China to act.

Washington’s New Threat Against Syria, Russia and Iran: Invitation to False Flag Operation

On Monday 26th June, the White House released a statement saying that the United States had “identified potential preparations for another chemical attack by the Assad regime…” It went on to say: “If, however, Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.”

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, followed that statement by tweeting,

“Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.”

On Tuesday morning, speaking on BBC 4 Today programme, the British Defence Minister Sir Michael Fallon was asked how Britain would respond to another American attack on Syria, and he responded “we will support” future US action in response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Israel tackles Trump’s Syrian blues

Government officials can be broadly put into two categories — those who take to bureaucratic skulduggery like fish to water and the rest who survive the shenanigans. It’s a matter of both DNA and acquired skills. Then, there is a miniscule category to which the US State Secretary Rex Tillerson belongs who either fail or refuse to reconcile with their fate. Do not be surprised if he takes voluntary retirement from Washington establishment and heads for the Deep South to his roots to be with his clan, his family. (Read here and here the vicious attacks by America’s “Jewish press” on Tillerson.)

There is, of course, a policy twist to it. The rising star is the US’ ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, a protégé of the Jewish lobby. She has no background in diplomacy and seems a woman of average intelligence – remember her silly remarks on Kashmir? – a unseen (Jewish) hand is plotting her career. Haley is a permanent invitee to the president’s National Security Council meetings.
