France’s Macron Scrambles to Stand Next to Trump at G-20 Group Photo

Funny! Each world leader was assigned a spot. I wonder if Emmanuel Macron is looking for a daddy and so grabbed the spot next to Trump.

I would complain about Merkel’s mode of dress, but anything is better than a Hillary Clinton pantsuit, so I won’t complain.

Putin Hints JFK Was Murdered By The “Deep State” Which Is Now After Trump And Russia

Zionist moron Megyn Kelly somehow got an interview with one of the most serious men in the world.

Kelly is destroyed by Putin. The 7 minute video is embedded at the bottom of this post. Watch him insult the most hated reporter on the planet. The JFK material comes near the end of the story.

Like Trump, Putin plays 8D chess.

Zerohedge

In Megyn Kelly’s much anticipated interview with Vladimir Putin for her debut episode of NBC’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly”, the Russian President said he never met Donald Trump during his business trips to Russia (including Trump’s 2013 visit to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant), stated that he was unaware of any proposal from Jared Kushner to set up an alleged “secret line” of communications between the Trump administration and the Russian government, and that it’s “nonsense” to say Russia has collected compromising material about Trump among many other topics covered in the 7 minute interview (see below).

“I am not aware of such a proposal,” Putin said referring to Kushner’s alleged proposal. “No such proposal ever reached me.” Putin said many CEOs of major U.S. companies visit Russia and then asked rhetorically, “do you think we’re gathering dirt on all of them right now or something?” Putin asked, before saying: “Have you all lost your mind?”

Weird French President Emmanuel Macron Admits to Trying to Bully Trump with Handshake

CNN

French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed that there was indeed a deeper significance to the prolonged handshake he shared with US President Donald Trump in Brussels.

“My handshake with him, it’s not innocent,” Macron told the Journal du Dimanche in an interview published Sunday. “It’s not the alpha and the omega of politics, but a moment of truth.”

The two newly-minted leaders met in Brussels on Thursday and shook hands in full view of the press.

Pool reporter Phillip Rucker of the Washington Post, who was in the room, described it:

“They shook hands for an extended period of time. Each president gripped the other’s hand with considerable intensity, their knuckles turning white and their jaws clenching and faces tightening.”

Steve Holland, who covers the White House for Reuters, tweeted this: “The photogs noticed that Trump and Macron were gripping their hands hard… Trump seems to just want his hand back.”

On at least one, and maybe two, occasions during the tug of war Trump tries to pull away and Macron just keeps holding on.

In the interview, Macron compared his own handshake to his leadership posture.

One must show that we won’t make little concessions, even symbolic ones,” Macron said.

The centrist European leader also likened Trump’s diplomatic approach to those of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Donald Trump, the President of Turkey or the President of Russia are of a mindset of power relations, which doesn’t bother me,” Macron said. “I don’t believe in diplomacy of the public invective but in bilateral dialogues. I don’t let anything go. That’s how one makes oneself respected.”

Senate Attends White House Briefing on North Korea

War did not break out today and terrorists did not attack the buses carrying America’s Senators to a secure briefing room in the White House.

President Donald Trump did make THEM come to HIM, a very symbolic act of someone determined to show that he’s the boss.

ABC News

Several Senate Republicans described the full Senate briefing on North Korea at the White House Wednesday as a thorough accounting of the administration’s diplomatic and military options when it comes to dealing with Kim Jong Un.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called it “a long and detailed briefing.”

“The military is obviously planning for a number of options, as they should — minimal military action to more significant action,” Cruz said. “It’s of course the hope of the administration and Congress that military action isn’t necessary. If there’s a clear and imminent threat to the U.S., our military needs to be prepared to act and I believe they are prepared to act to keep our country safe.”

The senators were invited at the personal invitation of President Donald Trump after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, requested a briefing. The president stopped by the briefing at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House grounds.

Gardner said that one takeaway from the meeting was that “we are a long ways away from exercising all of our options on the diplomatic side.”

“There were great questions within the briefing from both sides of the aisles,” Gardener said. “It shows how important this issue is, to have that team assembled to talk about this and make sure North Korea knows they won’t get away with this.”

Separately, a senior administration official told ABC News that part of the current concern about North Korea comes from China’s view of North Korea as a threat.

“I think what’s different about how China is viewing the problem in North Korea today is that China is viewing that problem as the threat not only to U.S. interests and security or South Korean or Japanese interests and security, but also a threat to Chinese interests and security and so I think that is a big shift in and of itself,” the senior administration official told ABC News.

White House officials say the South Auditorium would be turned into a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or “SCIF,” and the briefing will be led by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, and Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats.

When asked about the bus ride to the White House ground for the meeting, Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, said it was “a unique approach to a classified briefing.”

Using the White House grounds for a full briefing with the Senate is a rare move, but administration officials told ABC News that too much shouldn’t be read into the choice of location.

Officials said that after hearing of McConnell’s request, the president suggested nonchalantly that the senators should come to the White House because he’s a “gracious host.” Trump has cultivated a reputation in his meetings at the White House for relishing the opportunity to show off his historic digs.

CNN’s report on today’s briefing is so biased you might as well call it fake news. It gets tiresome.

Trump Flip-Flops: NATO No Longer Obsolete

What’s wrong with President Trump?

Is he being blackmailed or his family threatened? He’s certainly not the candidate who won the presidency last November.

There are short pieces on each of his recent flip-flops at Zerohedge.

The most visible of the Trump flipping and flopping came Wednesday during a press confernce with the leader of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Sky News

Donald Trump has declared NATO is “no longer obsolete”, saying he is committed to the military alliance.

Before taking office in January, Mr Trump questioned its relevance, saying the organisation, established after World War Two, was “obsolete because it was designed many, many years ago”.

And “the (member) countries aren’t paying what they’re supposed to pay”, he said.

But the President has made a U-turn, describing the alliance as a “bulwark of international peace and security”.

He has again called on alliance members to spend 2% of their GDP on defence within a decade, saying they “must pay what they owe”.

If they “pay their fair share rather than relying on the US to make up the difference, we will all be much more secure”, Mr Trump told reporters after White House talks with NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg.

At a news conference, the President also admitted the US was “not getting along with Russia at all” and relations between the two global powers may be at an “all-time low”.

He said he hoped he can improve ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin but “we’re going to see what happens”.

Relations have become strained over Moscow’s support for President Bashar al Assad, whose Syrian forces allegedly carried out a chemical attack on civilians.

Russia has vetoed a UN Security Council resolution demanding a swift investigation into the attack.

Mr Trump said: “The secretary-general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism.

“I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change and now they do fight terrorism.

“I said it was obsolete, it’s no longer obsolete.”

So far, only five of the 28 NATO members, including the UK, spend 2% of their GDP on defence, but the number is expected to rise next year.

In her column today Ann Coulter theorizes that Trump is like a child hungry for the approval of the liberal media. Another theory I’ve read is that he’s been stuck with a deal that confers foreign policy on the neocons, with him being allowed to conduct domestic policy. We’ve also seen the theory that Jared Kushner controls Trump now.

Whatever, it’s a mystery. When Steve Bannon goes, MAGA is dead.

Inspiring! Putin speaking about the collapse of Western civilization

Paul Craig Roberts

Putin speaking about the collapse of Western civilization at the Valdai International Discussion Club, September 19, 2013
http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/19243

“Another serious challenge to Russia’s identity is linked to events taking place in the world. Here there are both foreign policy and moral aspects. We can see how many of the Euro-Atlantic countries are actually rejecting their roots, including the Christian values that constitute the basis of Western civilisation. They are denying moral principles and all traditional identities: national, cultural, religious and even sexual. They are implementing policies that equate large families with same-sex partnerships, belief in God with the belief in Satan.

“The excesses of political correctness have reached the point where people are seriously talking about registering political parties whose aim is to promote paedophilia. People in many European countries are embarrassed or afraid to talk about their religious affiliations. Holidays are abolished or even called something different; their essence is hidden away, as is their moral foundation. And people are aggressively trying to export this model all over the world. I am convinced that this opens a direct path to degradation and primitivism, resulting in a profound demographic and moral crisis.

“What else but the loss of the ability to self-reproduce could act as the greatest testimony of the moral crisis facing a human society? Today almost all developed nations are no longer able to reproduce themselves, even with the help of migration. Without the values embedded in Christianity and other world religions, without the standards of morality that have taken shape over millennia, people will inevitably lose their human dignity. We consider it natural and right to defend these values . One must respect every minority’s right to be different, but the rights of the majority must not be put into question.

“At the same time we see attempts to somehow revive a standardised model of a unipolar world and to blur the institutions of international law and national sovereignty. Such a unipolar, standardised world does not require sovereign states; it requires vassals. In a historical sense this amounts to a rejection of one’s own identity, of the God-given diversity of the world.

“Russia agrees with those who believe that key decisions should be worked out on a collective basis, rather than at the discretion of and in the interests of certain countries or groups of countries. Russia believes that international law, not the right of the strong, must apply. And we believe that every country, every nation is not exceptional, but unique, original and benefits from equal rights, including the right to independently choose their own development path.”

Listen! Russian Pranksters Hoax John McCain by Pretending to be Ukrainian Prime Minister

mccain crazy collage

Russian pranksters have hoaxed several of the anti-Trump people in Congress. Embedded at the bottom is an entertaining eleven minutes featuring hawish neocon Senator John “Songbird” McCain.

Sputnik News

Famous Russian phone pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov, known as Vovan and Lexus, have made hoax phone calls to US Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell into speaking about the sanctions against Russia, Kuznetsov told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The news comes as the pranksters called US Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the one who earlier claimed that “Putin is continuing to advance into Korea,” to say that Russia has invaded Limpopo, an African river that the politician believed to be a country in Africa.

Having introduced themselves as Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Kuznetsov and Stolyarov also discussed the sanctions against Russia with Waters.

Following the incident, Peskov said Kremlin was not linked to the prank phone calls and appreciated the fact that nobody had the idea to accuse Moscow of the tricks.

The sanctions issue was also discussed with US republicans, according to the hoaxers.

“We have pranked McCain, Lindsey Graham and the Republican Majority leader in Congress McConnell in the Congress Mitch McConnell on the issue of anti-Russian sanctions, however, we can not tell the details yet,” Kuznetsov said.

Since 2014, relations between Russia and the European Union and the United States, deteriorated amid the crisis in Ukraine. Brussels, Washington and their allies introduced several rounds of sanctions against Russia on the pretext of its alleged involvement in the Ukrainian conflict, which Moscow has repeatedly denied. In response to the restrictive measures, Russia has imposed a food embargo on some products originating in countries that have targeted it with sanctions.

Since then, NATO has been building up its military presence in Europe, particularly in eastern European countries bordering Russia, using Moscow’s alleged interference in Ukraine as a pretext.

As noted in several youtube comments, the case could be made that McCain committed an act of treason by negotiating with the Ukraine to undercut President Donald Trump’s policies.
