THE CONTRAST IS BLACK AND WHITE, CHALK AND CHEESE

The never Trumpers must surely now reconsider him as likely to be America’s greatest ever President. For those who still have a preference for Obama and Clinton please consider this:

When the Obama Administration sat down to construct a deal for Iran to have nuclear weapons within the decade (seven years now left) Obama and Kerry ignored American hostages being held by Iran.  As we now know, Iran does not recognise dual citizenship, so it refuses to allow even a consular visit to those being held.

At least five Americans were still being tortured and/or condemned to hard labour while the Iran deal was being wrapped up by John Kerry and his associates.Those hostages didn’t even make it to the bargaining table.

It was only after this shocking deal was finalised that Obama “swapped” Iranians America was holding without trial for American hostages in an unrelated arrangement.

The difference between how Obama sees the world and how Trump sees it, is that the three hostages held by North Korea have now been released before anyone has even decided on where the table is to be sited. 

Trump is welcoming them home at the Andrews Joint Airforce Base at 2AM tomorrow.

It will be interesting to see how the Washington Post and CNN spins this one. Media still haven’t comes to terms with a President who does what he promises to do…it is so unClinton and so unObama. 

Trump is rebuilding US foreign policy to where it is no longer treated as a joke by nefarious States and European nations and still the mad Left refuses to acknowledge anything he has done, except a porn star.

Meanwhile the Senate is conducting a confirmation hearing on Trump’s nomination for CIA Director, Gina Haspel (above). The desperate Democrats, in the belief that Trump cannot do anything constructive, have set about tearing her down. It isn’t working…she will be confirmed!

An example of Democrat questioning: “Have you ever been alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?” 

I just want to say that I now believe there is at least one woman in a high place who is the equal of, and probably better than, any man.

I have said this before and you can tear me to bits again; “There is nothing more sexy than a highly intelligent woman of any age (even 61) and any shape.” 

She will be a welcome adornment to the Agency.

You can’t make this shit up. Some very light coloured so-called blackfella, wearing white man’s gear, telling some idiot journo that all they want is to run the blackfella embassy in Canberra with self-government.
I would love to see that, but not using taxpayers’ money. They want to be blackfellas and not Australians, and continue the pathetic whining, do it the way the illustrious noble savages did it back in the day before the evil white man arrive and civilised the nation, using nature’s bounty only.
No filthy white man’s money, nothing that came about after 1770.

The revelation that a south Sudanese army general had ,via his relatives bought a massive and expensive mansion near Melbourne should be nothing new, This sort of stuff has been going on for decades elsewhere, Many powerful people have bought up big on foreign ""bolt holes"" especially those from ex colonial countries ,often taking their ill gotten gains with them, , We in Aus are just realising that we have indeed now joined the rest of the world in this respect, in this case via our exploited (under labour)migration programme .As an aside,They dont call London ""Londinistan"" for nothing.

The media are talking about the lack of the rise in wages , There are two sides to this,Firstly the cost of living is rising mainly because the cost of production , via the energy needed to just keep the lights on , This was always going to happen,the promises of cheaper energy always were a lie,decades ago the green/left were saying that energy was too cheap. the feds and the states have all run up massive debts , which somehow will have to be repaid,, The other problem in the room is our ability to compete with our trading partners,it is my belief that many of our exports of non farm goods are at borderline profitability, small rises in costs, plus exchange rates would be very bad for industry and local employment,Meanwhile some get salary rises far above the norm ,

Even worse, what if it was the perfectly normal pussy of an empowered wimmin!

A successful businessman was driving his BMW past a lunatic asylum when a tyre burst. He jacked up the car, removed the wheel nuts & got the spare out of the boot. Unfortunately he kicked the wheel nuts he had removed & they rolled into a gutter.
"What the hell do I do now?" he thought.
Just then an inmate of the asylum stuck his head against the sturdy cyclone fence & said: "Just remove one wheel nut from the other three wheels & use them to affix the spare. That will get you to a repair-shop".
"That's rational thinking", said the businessman. "How come you're in a loony-bin?".
"It's to do with my theory on the auditory organs of spiders", said the loony.

that short arsed scientologist has another movie out soon I shall not need to watch

The deal maker is failing repeatedly

The Qur'an is the most tried and proven Terror manual currently available on Planet Earth.......It’s Message is what YOUR Government is currently Promoting and financing, whilst members of this Terror Infused Cult continue to be imported, to walk among Your Children as they prepare to battle Australia to strip us of Our Western, Principles and Conservative Culture….The very same Principles our Soldiers Fought for, since Federation…Simple Logic…100% of the Terror attacks in Australia in the last 10 Years or more, have been carried out by the 3% of people in Australia whom are Islamic. All to the detriment of the other 97%.........Who would inflict this Cancerous Cult upon their own Kin, or Countrymen?....This is not about Inclusiveness, this is Suicide by Political Correctness. ..

Apparently Murdoch minions are cutting up rough about bonuses being paid to several hundred ABC employees --- totalling 3 million I think - something around Kochies annual take for giggling on tele in the morning - a bit like Karl. FFS!?!?!

Any one got an update on the number of children armed with stones shot with large calibre rifles by the Israelis?

Statements & Releases
Presidential Message on Ramadan

Issued on: May 15, 2018

menuAll News

With the rising of tonight’s moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the world.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad through fellowship and prayer. Many observe this holy time by fasting, performing acts of charity, reciting prayers, and reading the Quran.

Ramadan is a time of self-reflection intended to deepen one’s spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides. In this spirit of thanksgiving and reflection, those observing Ramadan can strengthen our communities, help those in need, and serve as good examples for how to live a holy life.

Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life. In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice. Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government. By doing so, the Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul.

As so many people unite to celebrate Ramadan, Melania and I join in the hope for a blessed month. Ramadan Mubarak.

I note the Libs have now taken a dislike to black persons as well as women - unless you are a lickspittle off spring of a pseudo English man and an adjunct associate sycophantic member of the IPA -

Footloose

A 14th human foot — this one in a hiking boot — washes ashore in Canada
Like nearly all of the 13 human feet that had mysteriously washed up on Canadian shores before it, the 14th foot appeared, unexpectedly, on the banks of the Salish Sea in British Columbia. This time, a man walking the beach on Gabriola Island discovered the appendage last Sunday afternoon, trapped in a mass of logs, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The ‘deep state’ is in Trump’s own White House

President Trump complains about a “deep state” of government officials who work in his administration yet are supposedly undermining him in secret. To the extent such shadowy figures exist, they are not all career employees of federal agencies; many are on Trump's team in the White House.

Leaks to the media have plagued Trump's presidency since Day One, and a new report on leakers' motives opens a window into the extent of the subterfuge.

“To be honest, it probably falls into a couple of categories,” one White House official told Axios's Jonathan Swan. “The first is personal vendettas. And two is to make sure there's an accurate record of what's really going on in the White House.”

Notice that neither reason involves the president's best interest. All leaks are not created equal, and some can appear designed to protect Trump, even if they make him mad.

Two weeks ago, for instance, the New York Times obtained a list of topics about which special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wants to question Trump. Though the president called the leak “disgraceful,” the list that made its way to the Times had been generated by Trump's own legal team. It looked to me as if Trump's lawyers might have been trying to give him a wake-up call that would further discourage him from risking an interview with Mueller.

Trump's visa changes are clawing a famous crab town. And they voted for him.
New restrictions on a program that allowed seasonal foreign workers to enter the U.S. are devastating Hoopers Island, Maryland.
HOOPERS ISLAND, Maryland — This community voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. But now his immigration restrictions are killing their livelihood — legendary crabs that are a mainstay of the local economy and a regional delicacy.

For decades, Hoopers Island, known for its crabbing industry, has relied on a federal seasonal work program — known as H-2B visas — to keep its businesses humming. This has allowed employers to hire foreigners, mostly Mexican women, to come temporarily to pick crab meat.

But this year, the Trump administration's cap on H-2B visas — and a shift from a first-come, first-served based model to a lottery system that has disadvantaged Hoopers Island seasonal workers — has left the island without 40 percent of the visas they have needed in the past.

Trump’s approach is hurting the U.S., foreign policy experts say

President Donald Trump and his administration’s lack of a consistent and coherent foreign policy is confusing U.S. allies and ceding ground to countries that do not share America’s interests, a group of foreign policy experts said at a debate on Monday evening.

But for all the criticism of the president’s approach, some of the panelists at the event in Dallas, “The Future of America’s Global Role,” argued that there might be a silver lining in letting the world know that the U.S. would not do everything.

“I think the global perception has gone from the U.S. being a reliable partner, and someone that many countries would aspire to emulate in some ways, to someone who is an unreliable partner,” said Loren DeJonge Schulman, deputy director of studies at the Center for a New American Security in Washington. “That is not necessarily a bad thing. … It is good, in some ways, for people to think that United States is not going to solve every problem for us constantly.”

Michael Avenatti is using Trump tactics to battle Trump, a strategy that comes with risks
........................( And having fun doing so. ).................................................

Ten weeks ago, Michael Avenatti was a California lawyer known for his successes in class-action lawsuits. Then he sued President Trump on behalf of adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and — through an extraordinarily aggressive media campaign — parlayed a narrow dispute about a one-night stand into a ­news-cycle-dominating assault on the president of the United States.

The take-no-prisoners approach has turned Avenatti into a darling of the political left, which is hungry for anti-Trump heroes and gleeful at the notion that the president could be taken down by a porn star. Many of Avenatti’s fans believe he is just as likely to unearth damaging revelations about Trump as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is leading the probe into Russian influence in the 2016 election.

To become one of Trump’s chief adversaries, Avenatti has carved a Trumpian path. He taunts his opponents. He uses Twitter to make explosive accusations. And he is omnipresent on cable news.

Yet Avenatti’s tactics and visibility may carry risks that could undermine his ability to represent his client, who is suing longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen and the president to be released from a non-disclosure agreement. Scrutiny of his business record and of his motives has provided grist for distracting headlines in recent days. And his publication last week of Cohen’s banking history — hard-to-get information touching on some of the most sensitive issues before the White House — could jeopardize his ability to represent Daniels in court, some experts say.

From his perch atop a White House full of leakers on Monday, President Trump tweeted, "leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will find out who they are!"

The tweet was Trump's first time calling anyone a "traitor" since the first week of his presidency, when he assailed Chelsea Manning.

In the past he has also labeled Edward Snowden a traitor. Both Manning and Snowden leaked sensitive government secrets during the Obama administration.

Some of the Trump-era leaks have also involved national security and other sensitive information. But recent headlines have been about more mundane matters: details of conversations from White House meetings.

Last week, anonymous staffers told reporters about a crass remark press aide Kelly Sadler made about Senator John McCain in a West Wing meeting. When press secretary Sarah Sanders berated staffers for leaking about it, her remarks were promptly leaked, too.

Observers say it's a symptom of a troubled White House culture, with various factions and competing agendas.

Cont, many will leave their birth country and go to the west and the EU,There is also the fact that a country with little to lose will likely be more likely to be more radical in its foreign policies, The only real hope of a democratic Iran is better living standards for its population and the rise of its middle class, who are not dependant on the whims of the religious zealots , that would be a gain for everybody,This applies to most countries around the world, Containment cannot work in the long term and just makes more problems . People smuggling, mass migrations , Crime ,etc etc,Better to trade than fight,
