  • McCain Blasts Tillerson For Saying Policy Overrides Values On Foreign Policy

    05/09/2017 8:09:32 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 60 replies
    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a frequent critic of the Trump administration, blasted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for suggesting that Americas foreign policy must stray from its core values at times. Tillerson said it was important to understand the difference between policy and values, in an address to State Department employees Wednesday. He said that that America First means that U.S. national security and economic interests will sometimes override the demand for other countries to adhere to American values. If we condition too heavily that others must adopt this value that weve come to over a long history of our...

    Turkish authorities have launched a massive detention operation, arresting more than 1,000 people nationwide on Wednesday. The Turkish government says the arrests are aimed at supporters of the U.S-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames for last year's failed coup attempt. And these arrests are by no means the end of the operation. Anadolu Agency, a state-run news service, says the government aims to arrest another 2,000 people. Germany's Deutsche Welle newspaper reports roughly 8,500 police officers undertook raids in all 81 provinces in Turkey

    Politico ^ | March 22, 2017 | Eli Stokols and Eliana Johnson
    Defense Secretary James Mattis unconventional choices for top Pentagon posts and his reluctance to aggressively push for dramatic increases in the defense budget have rankled Republicans on Capitol Hill who say hes burning through political capital he needs as he begins reshaping the Pentagon. (Snip) But Republican lawmakers and senior congressional aides said in recent interviews theyre running out of patience with Mattis' staffing decisions, which have disappointed Republican members of the Senate Armed Services Committee hoping to see their ideological allies elevated to senior levels in the Defense Department. Others are grumbling about Mattis refusal to advocate a bigger...

    REMINDER One of the larger hurdles President Trump faces is a need to re-educate an entire generation on a fundamentally new vision of the U.S. economy. A return to a Pro-Main Street, goods-based, manufacturing, technology, innovation and industry driven economic model. Interestingly, many people have referenced a 1991 (25 years old) video of Donald Trump testifying before congress as evidence of him being tuned in to political consequences of economic activity. The entire video is well worth watching because it gives you insight into a very specific moment in time as they discuss the Reagan era 1986 tax...
  • Mexican Government Fear Both Policy and Media Optics During T-Rex and General Kelly Visit

    The Mexican government is strongly controlling the optics of a visit today by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and DHS Secretary General John Kelly. [An upcoming press conference live stream is embedded below ] Mexico fears the projection of U.S. strength will undermine their position. President Trump is taking a hard-line approach with Mexicos central policies that have allowed, and in many cases facilitated, vast numbers of economic migrants to travel into the U.S. Trumps pending policies are going to be weighted heavily on the feedback he receives from T-Rex and General Kellys visit.

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump held a marathon press conference, covering a whole host of topics and questions from journalists inside and outside the establishment media.  Both during and afterward, the media meltdowns were palpable. On both social media and television, they lamented the President’s repeated attacks on their negative coverage of his administration and what he deemed to be fake news as a result of their “level of dishonesty” that’s “out of control.” Without any further adieu, here’s the top 12 moments from the nearly-two-hour presser of the President laying into the liberal media.12 of the Top Trump Jabs...

    President Nicols Maduro has expelled CNN after accusing the international news outlet of manipulating information about Venezuela. Maduro said Sunday he wants CNN outside Venezuela after he claimed the news channel manipulated information about a students complaint regarding the lack of food at school. Some media like CNN tried to manipulate information, he said. They can not manipulate information like that, its our affair, of Venezuelans. CNN does not need to put its nose in Venezuela I want CNN well away from here.

    Investigative reporter Michael Isikoff interviewed Syrias Bashar al-Assad about the civil war and the ongoing refugee crisis. Isikoff did not expect to hear Assad confirm President Trumps position that terrorists are embedded within the refugee community. Worth noting, amid the 30,000 foot view of the larger issues, is how accessible Assad is to this western journalist interview. Ask yourselves, why hasnt the New York Times, or Washington Post interviewed Assad and delivered a similar finding?.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week on logistical challenges that the U.S. military faced when sending an armored unit of 4,000 soldiers and 90 tanks to Europe in order to protect NATO member states and deter Russian aggression.

    A majority, 52 percent, identify as "pro-choice," according to a new pollconducted by Marist College and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. But an even larger majority, 83 percent oppose subsidizing international abortion. The polling comes on the heels ofPresident Trump's decision to reinstate the Mexico City policy. That executive order prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding any organization working to provide abortion abroad.

    It used to be pretty obvious which cars, trucks and SUVs were built in the U.S. (Detroit's Big Three of Ford, GM and Chrysler, although Chrysler has since merged with Fiat) and which weren't (everything else). Then in the 1980's the Japanese started building cars here, which made for some interesting arguments about what constituted an 'American' car. But in today's global economy, it's even harder to answer the question: Is your car made in America?Many consumers looking to buy an American-built vehicle have a difficult time identifying one that's assembled here with 100-percent American-built components. That's because it's impossible,...

    Democrats and the media, you should be tried and imprisoned for treason. You are traitors lying to try and regain power to further your destruction of this country. You LIE and say the Russians interfered in the Presidential elections to the degree that they swayed the results. You have members of Federal agencies (who are beholden to you for their money) to come out and lie and claim Russia played a significant part in all of this and some have said it borders on a "declaration of war". Whatever Russia did may have gained Trump 1,000 votes, but Russia could...

    Multiple media outlets are reporting that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is finalizing a document that the Obama administration hopes will form the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that officially recognizes a Palestinian state before the end of Barack Obamas term on January 20th. This comes on the heels of the UN Security Councils adoption of resolution 2334 on December 23rd. That resolution declared that all Israeli settlements in the West Bank are illegal, it stated that the Security Council recognizes the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between Israel and Palestine, and it officially gave East...
