Trump Signs Russia Sanctions Bill “With Reservations”

America’s great (sarc) Congress is on a roll. Last week Congress made it a crime to refuse to do business with Israel. Now, the geniuses have given the world a bill that drives us closer to war.

The few votes against this bill show that the number of politicians in Washington not controlled by the New World Order (Rothschilds and their puppet Soros) is minuscule.

The Europeans, who depend on Russia for their energy, are reportedly angry over the sanctions bill. Europe’s response deserves a separate post later.

The glimmer of hope here is that Trump signed the sanctions bill while issuing a statement of his reservations, reproduced below.

Subject: Statement by President Donald J. Trump on Signing the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act”

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 2, 2017

*Statement by President Donald J. Trump on Signing the Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act*

Today, I signed into law the Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, which enacts new sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia. I favor tough measures to punish and deter bad behavior by the rogue regimes in Tehran and Pyongyang. I also support making clear that America will not tolerate interference in our democratic process, and that we will side with our allies and friends against Russian subversion and destabilization.

That is why, since taking office, I have enacted tough new sanctions on Iran and North Korea, and shored up existing sanctions on Russia.

Since this bill was first introduced, I have expressed my concerns to Congress about the many ways it improperly encroaches on Executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies.

My Administration has attempted to work with Congress to make this bill better. We have made progress and improved the language to give the Treasury Department greater flexibility in granting routine licenses to American businesses, people, and companies. The improved language also reflects feedback from our European allies who have been steadfast partners on Russia sanctions regarding the energy sanctions provided for in the legislation. The new language also ensures our agencies can delay sanctions on the intelligence and defense sectors, because those sanctions could negatively affect American companies and those of our allies.

Still, the bill remains seriously flawed particularly because it encroaches on the executive branchs authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a healthcare bill after seven years of talking. By limiting the Executives flexibility, this bill makes it harder for the United States to strike good deals for the American people, and will drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together. The Framers of our Constitution put foreign affairs in the hands of the President. This bill will prove the wisdom of that choice.

Yet despite its problems, I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity. It represents the will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues so that these sanctions will no longer be necessary.

Further, the bill sends a clear message to Iran and North Korea that the American people will not tolerate their dangerous and destabilizing behavior. America will continue to work closely with our friends and allies to check those countries malignant activities.

I built a truly great company worth many billions of dollars. That is a big part of the reason I was elected. As President, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress.

ABC News is reporting that in a separate statement that Trump called the sanctions bill unconstitutional:

President Trump today signed a bill aimed at punishing Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election despite calling it “significantly flawed.”

In a signing statement released by the White House, Trump said the legislation “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions” in lawmakers’ “haste” to pass it.

“While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” he said.

He went on, “My administration particularly expects the Congress to refrain from using this flawed bill to hinder our important work with European allies to resolve the conflict in Ukraine and from using it to hinder our efforts to address any unintended consequences it may have for American businesses, our friends or our allies.”

Unconstitutional? Next stop, the U.S. Supreme Court.

That said, signing bill makes Trump look weak (which he is because of the Republican establishment). He should have vetoed it on principle.

Killer McCain’s Calls for War, A History

A nice concise history of American Senator John McCain’s warmongering ways has been published.

I’ve extracted the list of countries that McCain has targeted for American aggression, along with the first sentence or two of that section of the article. Click on the link to read the entire piece.

Last week from his hospital bed, McCain expressed his displeasure with President Trump for cutting off CIA funding to the Syrian rebels. McCain is dying and he’s still pushing war. This is what happens when you’re bought and paid for the the (((Neocon))) warmongers.

He should resign and try to make peace with his maker, if that’s even possible.

Excerpted and condensed from Geopolitics Alert

Washington (GPA) – Earlier this week notorious war hawk US Senator John McCain (R-Az) was diagnosed with brain cancer. While the liberal and conservative establishments are sending their regards, Geopolitics Alert instead compiled a list of reasons why we don’t care about McCain.

The list is of course a history of all the instances McCain has called for US-led intervention around the world. There’s obviously a long history here, so Geopolitics Alert has compiled the largest examples from Europe to Asia. We’ll start with the obvious wars first.

Afghanistan and Iraq

Obviously every US senator (besides California’s Barbara Lee) voted to give president George W. Bush the power to invade Afghanistan following the events of September 11th.

Syria

Another country on that 2001 list (of course) was Syria. Now, the Bush regime may have never gotten a chance to continue toppling Mideast countries (thanks to the failure in Iraq and the exposure of that war being sold on lies). But McCain seemingly never lost sight of his hatred for Bashar Al-Assad.

Libya

McCain’s plans for Syria never quite worked the way he wanted but he probably should’ve know they would never yield a positive result. If McCain didn’t want to look at Iraq to prove that point, he had another more recent example he could’ve used: the NATO intervention in Libya.

West and Central Africa

McCain is also a champion of the “war on terror” in other parts of Africa. While McCain hasn’t directly supported terrorists in some countries in Africa, he still has called for more US intervention across the continent.

Iran

Another country on the list of hated nations originally put forth by Bush undersecretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz, and also another long time target of McCain, is of course Iran.

Bosnia and Kosovo

But McCain isn’t satisfied with just backing salafi jihadists in the traditional Middle East and North African theaters. He’s also backed violent radicals across the fringes of Europe.

Ukraine

Don’t be fooled into thinking that McCain only supports jihadists in Eastern Europe though! He also backs the overt Nazis acting as death squads for Kiev in the ongoing Ukrainian conflict.

Russia

The story of McCain’s hatred of Russia spans back to the Cold War. We won’t get into McCain’s fear of communism that’s evolved into just general Russophobia.

North Korea

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DRPK/North Korea) was also an early target of McCain’s making his September 12th wish list.

Bonus: China

China is kind of in its own class with McCain, who’s made strange vague threats towards the country in the past. Such as “the Arab spring is coming to China,” whatever that means.

Nude People Kill Sheep in Bizarre Protest at Auschwitz “Death Camp” That Enrages Jews

Leftists stage naked protests in Christian churches so why not in the Auschwitz memorial to six million dead Jews?

Well, for one thing the Jews don’t like it.

The odious twist on this protest is the killing of a sheep. Where he hell is PETA on this one? It’s Auschwitz. It’s about killing Jews, not innocent sheep.

Huffington Post

At least 11 people were arrested at Auschwitz, the former Nazi death camp, on Friday after they slaughtered a sheep beneath the entry gate, removed their clothing and chained themselves together.

Local police said the men and women, ages 20 to 27, unfurled a banner reading “love” in English as they stripped naked, according to Deutsche Press Agentur. Some kind of firecracker was also launched from the nearby parking lot, according to a spokesman for the Auschwitz site, which is now a state museum.

Officials in the southern Polish city of Oswiecim didn’t immediately comment on a motive for the bizarre action. But the Polish newspaper Gazeta Krakowska reported that the individuals were protesting the continuing conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Police moved in as the protesters sat chained beneath the entry gate marked with its infamous slogan, “Arbeit Macht Frei” (”Work sets you free”). An estimated 1.1 million inmates, the vast majority of them Jewish prisoners, died at the extermination and labor camp complex built by Nazi Germany. Russians, Poles and Romani were among the many other victims.

Visits to the site, some 30 miles from Krakow, were suspended while police and guards at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum dealt with the demonstrators. Police described them as one German national, six Poles and four Belarusians, the BBC reported.

A museum statement criticized the decision to protest there, declaring that using the symbol of Auschwitz to draw attention “is outrageous and unacceptable. It is disrespectful to the memory of all the victims of the German Nazi Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp.”

Don’t lots of people go to Auschwitz and make the Nazi salute? That’s a fair way to protest the Holohoax.

Report: FBI Did Wiretap Trump Tower in Search of Evidence of Russian Money Laundering

Recall from decades ago the strategy called the “limited hangout.”

Allegedly, this was the strategy used by the Nixon administration in regard to the Watergate affair.

You reveal a little of the least damaging aspects of the truth to cover yourself from more serious charges.

You can view the following story about FBI surveillance however you like, but I view it as an FBI limited hangout, designed to cover criminal wrongdoing by the FBI.

Excerpt from RT.com

The FBI did spy on Donald Trump’s flagship high-rise in New York while looking for Russians, but the operation took place four years ago and not during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to a report by ABC News.

Federal agents spied on what they described as an “international money laundering, sports gambling and extortion ring” that operated out of unit 63A in Trump Tower between 2011 and 2013, ABC News reported Tuesday. The surveillance resulted in more than 30 indictments in April 2013.

The apartment used by the suspects was just three floors below Trump’s own penthouse residence, but the FBI investigation did not implicate or involve the real-estate tycoon who would go on to become the 45th US president, according to ABC.

Rather, the investigation focused on Trump Tower resident Vadim Trincher, who eventually pleaded guilty to racketeering charges and is due to be released from prison in July.

The ultimate target of the FBI operation was Alimzhan Tursunovich Tokhtakhounov, also known as “Taiwanchik,” suspected of bringing into the US more than $50 million in profits from illegal gambling. The money came from Russia, Ukraine and other countries, and was laundered through shell companies and banks based in Cyprus, Mike Gaeta, the lead agent in the FBI probe, told ABC in 2014.

The Uzbekistan-born mobster had already been indicted for trying to fix figure-skating competitions at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. Tokhtakhounov escaped arrest, however, and has not been caught since despite Interpol’s “red notice.”

I almost forgot the J word, which is Jews. I strongly suspect that the “Russian” mobster at the heart of this story is part of the Jewish mafia. That would explain how he’s been able to escape capture for over a decade.

Report: Trump’s lawyer hand-delivered Michael Flynn a secret plan to lift sanctions on Russia implicating Trump in TREASON

FELIX SATER, ALLEGED MAFIA. THEY LEFT OUT THE WORD “JEWISH.”

[Note: This post was prepared early Monday morning. I held it back, waiting to see how things would shake out. It’s still not clear what the fallout will be. I’m posting it with uncertainty still hanging in the air.]

The Internet was very busy Sunday night, implicating American president Donald Trump in pedophilia (via his association with MILO Yiannopoulas) and in treason via his association with General Michael Flynn. I have separate posts on MILO. This one is about allegations relating to Trump’s Jewish lawyer and General Flynn–allegations sparking renewed calls for Trump’s removal from office.

This story also links Trump to the Mafia. National Vanguard dishes the info on Trump’s Jewish associates Felix Sater and Michael Cohen, who are at the center of this contrived controversy..

Business Insider

Trump Organization lawyer Michel Cohen hand-delivered a “peace” plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

The plan, which involved lifting sanctions on Russia, was drafted by Cohen — a close confidante of President Donald Trump who has served as his organization’s special counsel since 2007 — and Felix Sater, a Russian-American real estate developer who has helped the Trump Organization scout deals in Russia.

Sater, a businessman formerly linked with the Mafia who has boasted of his “relationship with Trump,” told the Washington Post last May that he “handled all of the negotiations” for the Trump Organization’s dealings in Russia in the mid-2000’s.

Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko, who met with Trump’s campaign team during the election, was also involved in drafting the proposal. Artemenko told the Times he had evidence of Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko’s corruption that could lead to his ouster.

Poroshenko has been locked in a war with pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine since he took power in 2014, and is considered more friendly to the West than his ousted predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych’s political rise was heavily aided by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Cohen, Sater, and Artemek met in a hotel lobby on Park Avenue in Manhattan in late January to draw up the proposal, the Times said, which Cohen claimed was aimed at “bringing about peace” between Ukraine and Russia. Violence flared up in eastern Ukraine last month between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russia separatists, in what amounted to the worst fighting in nearly a year.

Cohen said he has not discussed the plan with Trump directly, and is waiting to see how Trump’s new national security adviser — who has yet to be named — will address it. Trump has suggested he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia if Moscow proved a useful ally in fighting terrorism.

“If you get along and if Russia is really helping us,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal last month, “why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing some really great things?”

Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, was named in the explosive, unsubstantiated dossier presented by top US intelligence officials to Trump and senior lawmakers last month that has increased scrutiny of his presidential campaign’s ties to Russia.

The memos, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele for an opposition research firm in Washington, DC, said that Cohen was part of the “ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership,” and that he met secretly with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.

Cohen, whose wife is Ukrainian, insisted shortly after the dossier was published that he was in California at the time of the alleged meeting, and that he had never been to Prague.

The FBI is currently reviewing the allegations made in the dossier, and is pursuing three separate investigations into Russian hacking that targeted prominent Democrats during the US election. The intelligence community is also examining phone calls made between Trump associates and Russian officials throughout the campaign.

As this post is being composed early Monday morning before the start of the business day, no official Washington responses are yet available to analyze. However, Twitter exploded (it always explodes) in rage against Trump’s “treason.”

The correct way to view these far left Tweets and many others is to recognize that the (((Deep State))) is fighting for its existence. If the treason that those folks have done sees the light of day, they will be the ones in prison, not Donald Trump.

Retired Green Beret Warns: Deep State’s Utopia Of Oligarchs Is “Enslavement And Complete Control Of All Of Mankind”

Between documenting black on white crime and school teachers in sexual frenzy with students, we’ve talked about the (((elites))) plan for one world government, one currency, and one race here many times.

We’ve also talked about traitor John McCain as recently as two days ago. We also pointed out that Senator Lindsay Graham, another traitor, is also a faggot and probable child molester.

In this piece, the urgency factor for President Donald Trump is brought to the fore. Obstructionists aim to derail his presidency. This level of opposition is unprecedented in American history. But so is the audacity of the Deep State actors who, inspired by their love of Satan, their love of power, and their love of money, seek to destroy President Donald Trump AND his family.

In past articles the fact of a long struggle was mentioned and how it ties in with the current first year of the President’s administration. The struggle is not merely to overcome the executive actions and orders of Obama. The true battle is to remove the Marxists from bureaucratic fiefs established by Obama for carryover into the current administration and to deflect and negate their attacks and the attacks of others.

The circuit court in San Francisco and the Department of Justice have been waging a seesaw-type of battle over the executive order signed by the President. The order’s intent is to stem the illegal aliens and foreigners entering the U.S. from Middle Eastern nations either openly hostile to or providing the highest probability (intentionally or indirectly) for terrorists to enter the country. This makes perfect sense, and because it does, one can easily see that only those hell-bent on weakening the U.S. and fostering infiltration would be against the order: those Marxists of the Left labeled as “Democrats” and calling themselves “Progressives.”

They are not alone: they are aided by the Left-Right, which is even worse. The Left-Right are those masquerading as Republican Conservatives, when they are Marxist-Leftists and proponents of Global Governance and the New World Order. They are the Paul Ryans, the Mitch McConnells, and the Newt Gingriches. They are the pseudo-Republican politico’s in office presently and in the past who have those CFR slots and are working toward their fantasy: The Utopia of Oligarchs.

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.
