While Obama's expulsion of 35 Russian intelligence operatives, and the sanctioning of five Russian entities and four individuals, may appear to be a foreign relations move, one can safely conclude that his actions have more to do with undermining the incoming Trump administration than taking pot-shots at Vladimir Putin.
When President-elect Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday about the need for the United States to “greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes,” it set members of the left-wing media and watchdog groups on edge.
President Obama says he told Russian President Putin to "knock it off" after his alleged effort to interfere in the U.S. presidential election. With America's long record of interfering in other nation's elections, perhaps Obama should look in the mirror.
Obama is again illegally arming and training known terrorists to fight other terrorists he previously armed and funded in violation of U.S. law, unleashing more violence and terror across Iraq, Syria, and all over the Middle East. Unfortunately, the developments are neither “fake news” nor “Russian propaganda.” The schemes are highly illegal, though, with the punishment for aiding designated terror organizations ranging from 20 years to life in federal prison.
Under the guise of battling the Frankenstein terror monster of “moderate Syrian rebels” Obama unleashed on the people of Iraq and Syria in recent years — “moderate rebels” that even Vice President Joe Biden has admitted never actually existed — the Obama administration is now training pro-Iran Shiite militias led by known terrorists. That is according to official U.S. government sources cited by Molly Hennessy-Fiske and W.J. Henningan, reporting from Iraq for the pro-Obama Los Angeles Times.
Donald Trump’s phone conversation with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen and his questioning of our “one China” policy has leaders in both China and Taiwan speculating.
Speaking on Fox News Sunday on December 11, President-elect Donald Trump said he did not believe that the United States necessarily had to continue its long-standing position that Taiwan is part of “one China.”
After campaigning hard against globalism and the establishment, President-elect Donald Trump's potential picks for U.S. Secretary of State mentioned publicly so far — many of them well-known establishment globalists — have sparked confusion and even outrage among many of his closest and fiercest supporters. But the decision has not yet been made.
Among the names highlighted so far have been failed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, disgraced former CIA boss Gen. David Petraeus (ret.), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, ex-United Nations Ambassador John Bolton, and Congressman Dana Rohrbacher (R-Calif.). Newt Gingrich is apparently no longer in the running.
On Tuesday, president-elect Donald Trump — who campaigned on an anti-establishment platform — sat down with the quintessential establishment insider, Henry Kissinger. The meeting is cause for concern. Kissinger is well-known as a self-avowed globalist. He is also a long-time member of the Council of Foreign Relations and has been involved in the Trilateral Commission — both of which are pro-globalist organizations. Both as secretary of state and since, his foreign policy has always favored his internationalist bent. He is also a regular attendee of the highly secretive — and entirely globalist — annual Bilderberger Conference.
Following Donald Trump’s phone call from the president of Taiwan, the communist Chinese government issued a formal complaint about Trump’s action.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), often described as a “libertarian-leaning” Republican, has expressed strong misgivings about several individuals named as being among President-elect Donald Trump’s likely candidates to be secretary of state.
