Well, let’s see. Trump, doing his best to please his daughter and son-in-law, goes all out to support racist, belligerent Israel: fomenting, aiding anti-government protests in Iran, cutting aid to Islamic nations, touting Jerusalem as capital of Israel and who knows what next. Israel’s dream - the undisputed super power in the M.E. - becoming reality. Bigger button Trump and his ass lickers turned loose by a gimme, gimme public are going to bring the house down.

Yes, properly it should be "ueber allen"

A few paragraphs from CBS News that include a recent Trump tweet:

[QUOTE]

Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump

Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!

6:44 AM - Jan 1, 2018

The TV also broadcast footage of similar pro-government gatherings Thursday in the cities of Shiraz, Isfahan, Ardabil, Birjand and Yasuj.

Meanwhile, a top Russian diplomat warned the United States not to meddle in Iran's affairs and suggested that Washington wants to use the unrest to undermine the Iran nuclear agreement.

"We warn the U.S. against attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the state news agency Tass on Thursday.

Ryabkov also said Washington "is tempted to use the moment to raise new issues with regard to the JCPOA," the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that limits Iran's nuclear program, including restricting uranium enrichment for 10 years. Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday the U.S. wants an agreement lasting longer.

In a letter Wednesday to United Nations officials, Iranian Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo complained that Washington was intervening "in a grotesque way in Iran's internal affairs." He said Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were personally stirring up trouble.

"The president and vice-president of the United States, in their numerous absurd tweets, incited Iranians to engage in disruptive acts," the ambassador wrote to the U.N. Security Council president and U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Commander in Thief

A sneak peek at the January/February/March 2018

Washington Monthly

Read it here.

Donald Trump has spent his first year in office brazenly enriching himself and his businesses, making a mockery of the notion that the interests of the American people should come before the president's own bottom line. While past presidents divested of their assets or placed them in a blind trust, Trump merely shifted day-to-day control of his business onto his sons, who continue to brief him, and placed his assets in a trust that he can withdraw from whenever he wants.

The rate of misbehavior, by both the president and those hoping to curry his favor, has been dizzying to keep track of. One reason this hasn't generated more outcry is that the infractions have been a steady accumulation, rather than one smoking gun. So we thought now, one year into Trump's presidency, would be a good time to pull everything together and document the full scope of what's known about his corrupt behavior. Clearly, the Republican-controlled Congress has no interest in holding Trump to account. But if the Democrats retake Congress, they should start an investigation on their first day. This is their background reading.

Best,

Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission

"In November 2013, the tribunal found the State of Israel guilty of genocide of the Palestinian people and convicted former Israeli general Amos Yaron for crimes against humanity and genocide for his involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre."

INTERESTINGLY within months of that conviction TWO Malaysian airliners would either go missing or crash killing 537 people and forcing the financial collapse of the national airline.

Further Malaysia airlines crash and disappearance. A US government official revealed that he and his team of IT experts remotely hacked into a Boeing 757 as it sat on the runway and were able to take control of its flight functions.

Robert Hickey, a US Homeland Security cyber sleuth, managed to take over the passenger plane at Atlantic City International Airport in New Jersey.

The plane was hacked in 2016 but Hickey revealed the chilling details during his speech at the recent CyberSat Summit, Avionics Today reported.

Thanks, Zapdam. There are some - doubtless including the Dutch "ïnvestigators" - who know exactly the details of who, why and how in the downing of MH17. But neither you nor I nor the public generally will ever know. And no one will ever be prosecuted. For further reading on this tragedy:

Interestingly BOTH Malaysian planes that resulted in the death of 537 people were Boeing 777's . Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between Boeing's 767 and 747. As Boeing's first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls. It was also the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely with computer-aided design. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia, to its destination, Beijing Capital International Airport in China,

Interestingly one ISRAEL'S military/mossad agencies had an identical Malaysian Airline Boeing 777 to MH370 sitting in a hangar in Israel when MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014.

Thanks for the link, Zapdam.

It ought to be obvious to intelligent, unbiased people that Israel intends to weaken Iran using any means that might further that aim just as it has in the past.

I question Trump's daughter's and his son-in-law's true allegiance. It seems to be first to Israel, next to their private business enterprises.

Perhaps these recent reports help us understand. If you haven't time to read all of them do make time for reading - top to bottom - the first one:

Yousef Munayyer, director of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, said: “When Israel, which aims to portray itself to the world as liberal and democratic, blacklists activists dedicated to nonviolent organizing and dissent, it only further exposes itself as a fraud.”

More Trump aid to Israel in the form of cutting aid to the Palestinians:

Meanwhile, multiple news outlets are reporting that the Trump administration has frozen $125 million in funding for the U.N. agency that provides humanitarian aid to Palestinians. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency provides critical educational and health services in the Palestinian Territories. Last week, President Trump threatened to cut off U.S. funding to the agency, tweeting, “With the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” The State Department is denying the funding has been frozen.

Zapdam, your post concerning the disappearance of the two airliners could hardly have been better timed, just as was that of rs allen concerning BDS. MH370 is back in the news. Maybe, just maybe, the black boxes (if found) will provide clues to its mysterious disappearance.

Huge stakes in Texas firm's hunt for missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia -- Malaysia's government said Wednesday it will pay U.S. company Ocean Infinity up to $70 million if it can find the wreckage or black boxes of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 within three months, in a renewed bid to solve the plane's disappearance nearly four years ago.

Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said there was an 85 percent chance of finding the debris in a new 9,653 square mile area -- roughly the size of Vermont -- identified by experts.

Trump's Failed Coup in Iran

ERIC MARGOLIS • JANUARY 6, 2018

Listen to the state-‘guided’ US media this past week and you’d believe a series of spontaneous anti-government protests broke out across Iran. The protests, according to President Donald Trump and his Israeli allies, were caused by `anger over Iran’s spending billions on wars in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon and helping the Palestinian movement Hamas.’ Trump tweeted that Iranians were finally rising up against what he called their hated, brutal regime.

Talk about manufactured news. Most Iranians were elated and proud of their nation’s role in thwarting US plans to occupy much of Syria and overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad. By contrast, the other side in this long proxy war – the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Britain – was smarting with defeat and seeking ways to exact revenge on the hateful trio, Syria, Iran and Russia.

But when the coup fails there’s always…

[QUOTE]

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The Trump administration is expected to announce new sanctions against Iran soon, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said during a White House briefing on Thursday.

"I am expecting new sanctions on Iran, we continue to look at them," Mnuchin told reporters.

Earlier, Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Satterfield said in testimony before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Washington plans to use aggressive sanctions to diminish the influence of Iran in Syria.

Also, Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Steve Goldstein said during a press briefing that US President Donald Trump will make an announcement on whether he will recertify the Iran nuclear agreement either on Thursday or Friday morning.
