UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Ready to Kill a Million People

DISGUSTING NIKKI HALEY, ISRAELI STOOGE.

Libertarian Daniel McAdams asks why President Trump would place a bloodthirsty neocon who hates his guts in the UN as U.S. Ambassador.

Why indeed?

Lew Rockwell

There must be something about being named US Ambassador to the UN that brings out the inner mass murderer in people. Madeline Albright famously admitted that she thought 500,000 dead Iraqi children due to US sanctions was “worth it.” John Bolton never met a disagreement he didn’t want to turn into a war. Samantha Power barked about human rights while her Administration’s drones snuffed out human life in unprecedented numbers. The real “butcher of the Balkans” Richard Holbrooke sold the Yugoslavia war on lies. John “Death Squad” Negroponte sold the lie that Saddam Hussein needed to be killed and his country destroyed for democracy to flourish, and so on.

Considering how many millions of civilians have been killed on the war propaganda of US ambassadors to the UN, perhaps the equivalent of another Holocaust could have been avoided if Ron Paul’s HR 1146 has passed 30 years ago.

But nothing could have prepared us for Nikki “Holocaust” Haley, who has thundered into the Trump Administration as US Ambassador to the UN despite hating Trump and Trump hating her. Why would President Trump pick someone for such an influential position despite her being vocally and publicly opposed to the foreign policy that provided the margin of victory for him? We can only guess. Was Trump lying on the campaign trail? Possibly. Does he not bother to notice that he has surrounded himself with people who are deeply opposed, at the DNA level, to the policies he ran and won on? Seems more likely. As Johnny Rotten famously ended the Sex Pistols run, “ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

In fact yes. One-time top Trump supporter Ann Coulter today Tweeted the question “is there anyone out there left who doesn’t want Trump impeached?”

Coulter meant the wall or something else, but she could just as well have been complaining about the foreign policy about-face. Trump ran as a Ron Paul Republican, he governs as a George W. Bush Republican. Cheated? Yes, once again.

Which brings us back to the odious Nikki Haley. Today she no doubt thought she was being clever Tweeting in response to the predictable fact that yet another round of sanctions against North Korea did not result in Kim Jong-Un doing a Gaddafi suicide knife dance, that since the sanctions destroying the North Korean economy — such as it is — have not resulted in Kim’s surrender it was time to hand the matter over to Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Said US top UN diplomat Nikki: “We cut 90% of trade & 30% of oil. I have no problem kicking it to Gen. Mattis because I think he has plenty of options.”We killed their trade, we destroyed their oil imports and still they have the nerve to defy us and not surrender…so time for World War Three! That’s Nikki. No foreign policy experience beyond the fetid breath of the neocon “experts” whispering in her all-too-willing ear.

But Nikki was not done today. After threatening a war on North Korea that would likely leave ten or more thousand US troops dead, hundreds of thousands of South Korean civilians dead, and maybe another million North Koreans dead, she decided to opine on the utterly failed six year US regime change operation in Syria. Today, as Deir Ezzor has finally been liberated by the Syrian government from the scourge of ISIS, Nikki Haley chose to go on record defending ISIS and al-Qaeda by repeating Obama’s line that Assad must go.

Ponder this for a minute: Assad has just defeated ISIS in Deir Ezzor. ISIS is the reason the US has invaded Syrian sovereignty and initiated military action. Yet according to Nikki Haley Assad’s reward for wiping out ISIS is that he must be deposed — presumably in favor of US-backed rebels who have been in bed with ISIS for six years!

Is Nikki Haley pro-ISIS? Is she pro-al-Qaeda? Is she evil or just stupid?

You decide.

But if she is not removed from office soon, she will be leading perhaps a million people to their graves.

She’s both stupid and evil. It’s pathetic to think that her blunders and bullying could lead to World War III.

Jimmy Carter: “I know what North Korea wants.”

Former American president Jimmy Carter doesn’t have a particularly stellar record in conducting foreign policy. He seems to be unable to break out of his Christian mindset long enough to recognize that there’s evil in the world that has to be dealt with harshly.

Since he’s offering advice about what to do with North Korea, let me briefly summarize my theory. Kim Jong Un is a CIA agent, constantly stirring up trouble in order to justify the huge American military presence in the Far East. I like to think of Kim as an actor playing a role in a Bond movie. If Kim did not exist, we’d have to create him. He’s great for the military-industrial complex budget.

Getting back to Carter, he claims the U.S. is an oligarchy, which there’s plenty of evidence to believe is true. However, Carter won’t name the (((oligarchs.))) As a Christian, he must believe they are God’s chosen people and that lightening would strike him dead if he said something bad about the tribe.

Zerohedge

Former US President Jimmy Carter repeated his assertion that the US works more like an “oligarchy than a democracy,” while also lambasting Trump’s “hopeless” approach to the increasing tensions with North Korea.

[4]

The former president was speaking at a ‘Conversation with the Carters’ event at his Carter Center in Atlanta on Tuesday. AP reports that he said money in politics is what makes the US more like an oligarchy – run by a small group of rich people – rather than a democracy, repeating an allegation he has vociferously uttered for a few years [5].

“[Money in politics] violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system.

Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for President or being elected President. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and congress members.

So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over.”

Carter was referring to the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling to allow corporations to give unlimited campaign donations to political candidates, which he has previously said [6] was “the most stupid decision” the court had made.

But then the former President went to town on Trump and North Korea…

Carter said,

“The first thing I would do is treat the North Koreans with respect.”

“I know what the North Koreans want,” he said.

“What they want is a firm treaty guaranteeing North Korea that the US will not attack them or hurt them in any way, unless they attack one of their neighbors.” Carter said,

“But the United States has refused to do that.”

Carter said he would send his top person to Pyongyang immediately, adding:

“If I didn’t go myself.” The former president visited North Korea three times between 1994 and 2011.

“Until we’re willing to talk to them and treat them with respect as human beings, which they are, then I don’t think we’ll make any progress,” he said.

This North Korean girl band video was posted in a Zerohedge comment. It doesn’t fit the propaganda we’ve been fed about the Norks.

WaPo: American Military Not Preparing for War in Spite of Trump’s Harsh Words

Like I’ve been saying, Trump is playing good cop, bad cop, with him as the tough talking bad cop, and Nikki Haley and Rex Tillerson playing as the nice cops.

What’s new here is that the little fat boy from Nork is also portrayed by WaPo as a game player.

This analysis is better than most for the simple reason that the nutjob left is portraying Kim as being more rational and responsible than Trump. This is the same Kim that threatened to turn the USA into ashes just a couple of days ago.

To repeat my own theory briefly, I believe this whole thing is a big act, orchestrated by the (((Deep State))) to get the war machine going and stave off an impending economic collapse in America. But for purposes of trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, stories like this one are valuable.

Excerpt from Washington Post via MSN

The U.S. military does not appear to be moving toward a wartime footing with North Korea despite President Trump’s repeated threats this week of military action against Pyongyang, with few if any additional military forces moving into the region and the Pentagon chief emphasizing diplomacy over bloodshed.

The military posture has effectively remained the same even as Trump said Friday that he hopes North Korean officials “fully understand the gravity of what I said” and that “those words are very, very easy to understand.”

But it appears that Trump is still waging a rhetorical war rather preparing to launch a new one.

Among the signals that a major U.S. operation is not imminent is a trip just underway by Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a small cadre of his staff. He arrived Friday in Hawaii with plans to visit Japan, South Korea and China, all of which would be in peril if a war between North Korea and the United States explodes.

The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its accompanying flotilla of destroyers and guided-missile cruisers also returned to port Wednesday in Yokosuka, Japan, the Navy announced. The ships and the thousands of U.S. service members aboard spent three months patrolling the region and could have stayed at sea off the coast of the Korean Peninsula if the Pentagon was preparing for near-term conflict.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also have repeatedly sought to reduce tensions. Mattis, asked Thursday about Trump’s comments and what the death toll could look like in a nuclear confrontation, said that it was his job “to have military options should they be needed” but that he thought a diplomatic effort led by Tillerson and Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was gaining traction and should remain at the center of U.S. policy.

“I want to stay right there right now,” said Mattis, who commanded troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine general before retiring. “The tragedy of war is well enough known. It doesn’t need another characterization beyond the fact that it would be catastrophic.”

Despite North Korea’s colorful and threatening rhetorical broadsides, there also are few signs that the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, is spoiling for a fight that could lead to his ouster, and there has been no evacuation of American citizens from South Korea announced, said Michael C. Horowitz, a political-science professor and author at the University of Pennsylvania who studies military conflict.

“The U.S. is pre-positioned to respond to North Korean aggression on the peninsula all the time,” Horowitz said. “But what we are not seeing yet are true naval movements, family movements and troop movements that would suggest that the military is preparing for imminent conflict.”

The Pentagon has nearly 30,000 troops in South Korea to assist the government there in beating back any North Korean attack and has kept at least 28,500 deployed there each year since an armistice agreement put a halt to fighting in the Korean War in 1953. They would almost certainly be the first into the fight if North Korea decided to launch an attack, and there is no indication that their operations have significantly changed.

Patrick Cronin, the senior director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security, said that despite Trump’s rhetoric, he doesn’t see a major shift in U.S. policy toward North Korea. The plan still appears to be to pressure Pyongyang to stop its nuclear weapons development and be prepared to respond overwhelmingly if they strike, Cronin said.

If the intel is to be believed, the North has been working on nukes and missiles for decades. There’s no good reason to expect the country to stop unless there was a regime change, which China clearly does not want.

Candidate Trump talked a lot about winning during the campaign. In this case, the world may have to accept a draw.

Trump Must Veto New Russia Sanctions Bill and Challenge It in Supreme Court

The American Congress, bought and paid for with few exceptions by Israel, wants World War III with Russia. These fools, all Democrats and most Republicans, think a nuclear world war is winnable by the U.S.

There is no winnable nuclear war. These people are, like Ann Barnhardt and Paul Craig Roberts have repeatedly said, psychopaths.

President Trump must return the new harsh Russian sanctions bill to Congress with his objections. Let the Congress pass it again by a veto proof margin. Then let Trump make a case to the Supreme Court that Congress has usurped the president’s constitutional powers.

The presidential veto process is explained here. Essentially, if a bill passes Congress by a two-thirds or more margin, it becomes law whether the president signs it or not.

U.S. Congress passes bill limiting Trump’s ability to lift Russia sanctions
Trump would need to seek approval from Congress before terminating Russia sanctions

Eager to punish Russia for meddling in the 2016 election, the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday overwhelmingly backed a new package of sanctions against Moscow that prohibits President Donald Trump from waiving the penalties without first getting permission from Congress.

There is no proof that Russia “meddled” in the 2016 election. There’s a lot of fake news to that effect, but that’s it.

Lawmakers passed the legislation, 419-3, clearing the far-reaching measure for action by the Senate. If senators move quickly, the bill could be ready for Trump’s signature before Congress exits Washington for its regular August recess. The Senate, like the House, is expected to pass the legislation by a veto-proof margin. The bill also slaps Iran and North Korea with sanctions.

CNN reports that the three honest men in the house who voted against this doomsday bill are all Republicans — Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Tom Massie of Kentucky and Rep. John Duncan of Tennessee.

The 184-page measure serves as a rebuke of the Kremlin’s military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where Russian President Vladimir Putin has backed President Bashar al-Assad. It aims to hit Putin and the oligarchs close to him by targeting Russian corruption, human rights abusers, and crucial sectors of the Russian economy, including weapons sales and energy exports.

“It is well past time that we forcibly respond,” said congressman Ed Royce, a Republican from California and chairman of the House foreign affairs committee.

How much did George Soros pay you to say that, Rep. Royce?

Trump hasn’t threatened to reject the bill even though Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior administration officials had objected to a mandated congressional review should the president attempt to ease or lift the sanctions on Russia. They’ve argued it would infringe on the president’s executive authority and tie his hands as he explores avenues of communication and co-operation between the two former Cold War foes.

Jim Stone Freelance believes that the provision requiring Trump to report every move will lead to Trump’s impeachment, which Jim believes is the real goal of the bill.

But Trump’s persistent overtures to Russia are what pushed lawmakers to include the sanctions review. Many lawmakers view Russia as the nation’s top strategic adversary and believe more sanctions, not less, put the U.S. in a position of strength in any negotiations with Moscow.

America needs an enemy to justify its endless wars and its bloated military budget. If there is no real one around, the globalist neocons will make one up. John McCain has proven very useful in this effort. The (((neocons))) are going to miss old insane McCain.

Trump’s “rhetoric toward the Russians has been far too accommodating and conciliatory, up to this point,” said congressman Charlie Dent, Republican from Pennsylvania.

We elected Trump partly to see a detente forged with Russia. Is there something wrong with peace, Rep. Dent?

“Russian behaviour has been atrocious,” Dent said. “They deserve these enhanced sanctions. Relations with Russia will improve when Russian behaviour changes and they start to fall back into the family of nations.”

No, America’s behavior has been atrocious. American military bases ring Russia. The reverse isn’t true.

Fake News Media Working Hard to Destroy Putin-Trump Detente

YESTERYEAR.

NOW.

A search for “Trump news” will lead you at the current moment to a variety of stories about the historic first meeting between America’s Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Most of these stories have settled on a narrative: Trump was soft and the Russians are spinning the story with lies.

Always remember that the MSM is the propaganda arm for the globalists. Expect no truth, because you’ll likely get little of it.

This ABC News article offers a sample of the propagandizing media reaction to today’s meeting.

Kremlin and White House disagree over remarks from Trump-Putin meeting

Both Russia and the United States declared Friday’s first meeting between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin a success. But hours after the two sat down at the G20 Summit in Germany, the White House has found itself fending off criticism Trump had been too soft on Putin, as the Kremlin seemed to outflank his administration in shaping how the encounter is being presented.

Obviously, different people have different takeaways from their conversations. It’s natural and normal. What is unique is how the press is trying to blow it up into a scandal.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was in the room with the two presidents, said that Trump had “pressed” Putin on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Almost simultaneously, however, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who had also been present at the talks, told a separate news conference that Trump had informed Putin he “accepts” Russia’s denials that it was behind the election meddling.

“The president said that he had heard the clear statements of President Putin that it isn’t true, and that the Russian leadership had not interfered in these elections, and he said that he accepts these statements. And that’s it really,” Lavrov said.

Lavrov makes sense. He’s seeing the glass as half full, not as half empty.

Kim Jong-Un ‘orders IMMEDIATE EVACUATION of Pyongyang’ as tensions with US escalate

Regime change takes one bullet. It doesn’t take an army and it doesn’t take a war.

China is the wild card in this developing story.

No one knows whether this is a game of Trumpian chess or something of more substance.

express.co.uk

NORTH Korea leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered residents of the country’s capital Pyongyang to leave the city immediately, sparking fears he may be preparing for war.

Reports in Russian newspaper Pravda Report claim more than 600,000 people – around 25 per cent of the city’s population – are being urgently evacuated, as tensions escalate between North Korea and the United States.

According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.

Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on North Korea’s biggest national celebration, called ‘Day of the Sun’.

A tweet from Channel NewsAsia’s Beijing Correspondent Jeremy Koh said: “We’ve been told to be ready to move out at 6.20am, but no idea why. Also, no cell phones allowed.”

More than 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birthday of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15.

Officials in North Korea have already warned nuclear war could break out at any minute thanks to the “extremely tense” situation on the Korean Peninsula.

The US sent a navy strike group towards the Western Pacific in a show of force, with North Korea retorting with warnings of a nuclear attack in retaliation to any show of aggression.

China has also moved 150,000 soldiers close to the North Korean border in preparation for war.

The move comes after president Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield in response for the country’s brutal chemical attack which left 79 civilians dead.

North Korean officials have given no clues as to the nature of the “surprise event” or where it would take place.

However, past announcements of a similar nature have turned out to be relatively low-key.

n 2016 foreign journalists underwent hours of investigation by North Korean officials ahead of what turned out to be a pop concert to mark the finale of a ruling Workers’ Party congress.

However, on the 100th Day of the Sun, held in April 2012, North Korea attempted to launch a long-range rocket.

With war tensions raging, officials worldwide are wondering whether Kim Jong-un will use the special date to strike America after months of threats over nuclear weapons.

Remember what good buddies Dennis Rodman and Kim became during his trip to the North? Let’s put him to work negotiating a peace.

Basketball diplomacy might not be such a bad idea.

North Korea Threatens Nuclear Strike on U.S. Mainland as American Warships Approach

USS CARL VINSON.

When gooks aren’t creating trouble on American passenger planes, they’re really giving trouble in Asia.

We hear the term “regime change” a lot applied to Syria, but if American military leaders had their say, the man to be removed from power would be Kim Jong Un.

Reuters

North Korean state media warned on Tuesday of a nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of American aggression, as a U.S. Navy strike group steamed toward the western Pacific – a force U.S. President Donald Trump described as an “armada”.

Trump, who has urged China to do more to rein in its impoverished ally and neighbor, said in a tweet that North Korea was “looking for trouble” and the United States would “solve the problem” with or without Beijing’s help.

Tension has escalated sharply on the Korean peninsula amid concerns that reclusive North Korea may soon conduct a sixth nuclear test and after Washington said at the weekend it was diverting the aircraft carrier strike group Carl Vinson toward the Korean peninsula in a show of force.

“We are sending an armada. Very powerful,” Trump told Fox Business Network. “We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you.”

Referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Trump said: “He is doing the wrong thing.” Asked if he thought Kim was mentally fit, Trump replied: “I don’t know. I don’t know him.”

SO MUCH FUN, COMRADE. I PLAY WITH YELLOW GOO.

North Korea said earlier it was prepared to respond to any U.S. aggression.

“Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland,” its official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.

In spite of the military rhetoric, U.S. officials have previously stressed that stronger sanctions are the most likely U.S. course to press North Korea to abandon its nuclear program. At the same time, Washington has said all options – including military ones – are on the table and that a U.S. strike last week against Syria should serve as a warning to Pyongyang.

The strike group heading toward Korea includes the nuclear-powered flagship aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, two destroyers and a cruiser. Such a strike group is generally accompanied by submarines, although the Pentagon does not normally publicize this.

“PRUDENT” MOVE

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the deployment was not tied to a specific event but a matter of prudence.

“She is just on her way up there because that is where we thought it was most prudent to have her at this time,” he said at a Pentagon news conference.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump had put North Korea “clearly on notice” that he would not tolerate certain actions but dismissed Pyongyang’s nuclear attack threat.

“I think there is no evidence that North Korea has that capability at this time,” he said. “Threatening something that you don’t have the capability of isn’t really a threat.”

North Korea remains technically at war with the United States and its ally South Korea after the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. It regularly threatens to destroy both countries.

However, North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests, two of them last year, and is working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the United States, presenting Trump with perhaps his most pressing security headache.

IT GO BOOM!!!!!
