It’s TREASON! Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and Warner now engaged in open insurrection against the United States of America

It’s time to call for the arrest and prosecution of top Democrat lawmakers for treason. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Mark Warner have all signed a letter demanding the FBI and DOJ defy the declassification orders of the U.S. President. They are demanding this in order to hide their own criminality, of course. It’s a desperate move for deep state Democrats to prevent the truth from coming out about their complicity in the illegal spying on Trump campaign officials throughout 2016, 2017 and even 2018.

Zarif: Trump administration is a threat to the world

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday accused the administration of US President Donald Trump of being a threat to the Middle East and to the international community.

“It is true that there is a real threat to our region and to international peace and security: That threat is the Trump Administration’s sense of entitlement to destabilize the world along with rogue accomplices in our region,” Zarif wrote on Twitter.

AMAZING! TWO MILE LONG LINE for Trump Rally in Springfield, Missouri!

The line of Trump supporters attending the President’s rally in Springfield, Missouri, is two miles long according to a report from police and a local reporter. President Trump is scheduled to speak around 6:30 p.m. CDT at the JQH Arena located on the campus of Missouri State University. Reports state supporters started lining up early in the morning with one claiming to have been in line since Thursday night. Other reports state upwards of 20,000 people were in line for the 11,000 capacity venue.

Local Fox reporter John Brown, “Police tell me the JQH Arena May get to capacity. 11,000-plus expected at Trump/Hawley event in Springfield. First people in line at 5:30am. Line is 2 miles long. @FOX2now @fox4kc”

Gregg Jarrett: Rod Rosenstein’s coup attempt to depose Trump should not go unpunished

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup — a plot to overthrow the president.

As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was “regretful and emotional.” His behavior was described as “erratic.”

He blamed Trump.

So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him.

He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who was later fired as Assistant FBI Director. Rosenstein is said to have discussed recruiting cabinet members to depose Trump under the 25th Amendment.

Russia Says US Poses Main Threat to Syria's Territorial Integrity

***
The United States and its allies have been involved in airstrikes on Syria since 2014, claiming they seek to root out the Daesh Takfiri terrorists. The strikes have had no approval from the Syrian government or a mandate from the United Nations.

Washington and its allies have defied the Damascus government’s call to leave Syrian soil despite the collapse of the Takfiri terror group late last year.

Trump CAVES - delays order to declassify Russia probe documents

President Donald Trump has delayed his order to declassify documents related the the FBI’s surveillance of former campaign adviser Carter Page, and asked the Department of Justice to review the documents first.
Trump said on Friday that he met with the Department of Justice, who felt that releasing the documents could have a perceived negative impact on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing ‘Russiagate’ probe, and has received calls from allies asking that the documents not be released, due to their sensitive intelligence content.

The Odd Chabad Connection Between Putin and Trump

Let’s begin here:

Starting in 1999, [Vladimir] Putin enlisted two of his closest confidants, the oligarchs Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich, who would go on to become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as “Putin’s rabbi.”

Putin is a Chabad Lubavitch puppet

While RT and a lot of alternative news outlets portray Putin as some sort of savior, the reality is that he is just playing his role in the Jewish Babylonian messianic soap new world order. Instead of expelling jewish influence in his country after the fairly recent satanic mass slaughter of up to 80 million of his Russian brothers and sisters by jews after the "Bolshevik" revolution, Putin is calling for harder punishments for anti semitic expressions in Russia. He proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year.

Memoranda for the President on 9/11: Time for the Truth — False Flag Deep State Truth! UPDATE Adds Videos of Authors

God Bless America. On 15 February 2016, our President, speaking to a wildly enthusiastic crowd in Bluffton, South Carolina, promised that he would find out — and inform the American public — “who really knocked down the World Trade Center.”

As all engaged and informed citizens now know, the 9/11 Commission was a controlled cover-up at the same level of atrocity as 9/11 itself, and totally comparable to the Warren Commission controlled cover-up on the assassination of John F. Kennedy by Lyndon Baines Johnson, Allen Dulles, J. Edgard Hoover, and varied private sector participants as well as the government of Israel, which sent two witnesses to Dallas.

This collection of twenty-eight memoranda, most one page but a few two pages and one four pages, provide the President all he needs to know to do three big things when he gives his planned speech on 9/11 on 11 September 2018:

Trump goes on offensive in Kavanaugh fight, calls on accuser to provide a police report

President Trump on Friday went on the offensive in the battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation after days of laying low, calling on accuser Christine Blasey Ford to provide a police report, slamming Democrats for waiting to share the allegations and telling senators to move ahead with a vote.

In a sharp change of tone after days of reserved statements regarding the allegations, the president unleashed a torrent of tweets, first in defense of Kavanaugh. He then put pressure on Ford to furnish a police report, though there’s no indication one was ever filed.

“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!” he tweeted.

Washington’s Endless Sanctions Are Finally Backfiring

Sanctions are worse than ineffective: they have potentially far-reaching economic impacts. Limiting Iran’s oil sales pushes up energy prices globally. Penalizing technology sales to Moscow disproportionately affects European firms. Even smaller markets matter. Warned Peter Harrell, an attorney specializing in sanctions: “Trump’s August 9 tariffs on Turkey spurred a dramatic market selloff that not only affected Ankara but also caused the stocks of major European banks with business in Turkey to plunge and raised concerns about contagion to other emerging markets.” Washington’s promiscuous use of economic sanctions has moved the global economy away from the liberal marketplace.

Trump Breaks His Silence on Kavanaugh Accuser – Makes Impossible Demand

The President knows what he’s doing making this request. It’s the same tactic Ford is using to impugn the reputation of Brett Kavanaugh. You can’t prove a negative. Kavanaugh can’t prove he didn’t assault Ford because Ford can still claim it happened. Likewise, Ford can’t produce police documents because she didn’t go to the police after the incident occurred.

Trump is asking her to produce documents that don’t exist, or, at least, likely don’t exist.

Democrats will hate this kind of dismissive request, but all Trump is doing is playing Ford’s game. She is making unsubstantiated claims. Trump wants proof.

Israeli Military tells Russia Syrian Air Defense Teams To Blame For Downing Of Il-20

An Israeli military delegation led by Air Force Chief Major General Amikam Norkin provided Russia with a report saying that Syria’s indiscriminate air defense fire was the cause of the downing of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft, a senior Israeli army official said at a briefing for foreign reporters on Friday.

"Our presentation showed that Syrian air defense teams recklessly and irresponsibly fired missiles after our fighter jets had already left the area, downing the Russian aircraft," he said. "We provided the Russians with our data, they had some questions that we responded to, and we also stressed that it was not a provocation on Israel’s part," the official added.

US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Blasts America’s Support for Al-Qaeda in Syria, as Trump Threatens Further Military Action

US military veteran and congresswomen for Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, has slammed US foreign policy in Syria.

Arming al-Qaeda

On the 13th of September, Gabbard told [23:06] comedian and satirist Jimmy Dore:

“Since 2011 both overtly and covertly, the United States has been providing arms, intelligence, and equipment to fighters who are allied with, fighting along side, working with, al Qaeda in this regime change war.

So these very same terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. We’ve been supporting for years, as this ground force to fight in this regime change war that we have been quietly waging now for seven years.”

These statements are strikingly up front, given the fact that these policies began under Democratic Party President Barack Obama.

On the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Gabbard also criticised Trump’s opposition the Syrian government’s plans to retake Idlib, by way of tweet:

FEMA puts off test of emergency system that lets Trump text every U.S. cellphone as Americans threaten to turn off their phones in protest because they fear he'll use it to carp about the Mueller probe

The Trump administration plans to send a message to every U.S. cellphone to test a previously unused presidential alert system. But some adversaries of the president would rather shut off their phones than hear his dry-run warning about a national emergency.

A test message from Donald Trump was originally scheduled for 2:18 p.m. EDT on Thursday. Now it's being pushed back to the same time on Oct. 3 because the Federal Emergency Management Agency is focused on responding to Tropical Depression Florence.

Opponents of the president are pledging to turn off their phones at the appointed time rather than receive the alert, which subscribers to Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and other witreless carriers are unable to block.

Investigative reporter Sara Carter told Lou Dobbs Wednesday evening that sources told her the DOJ and FBI will defy President Trump’s declassification order and deliver the Carter Page FISA docs and other records related to the Russia probe to the White House next week WITH REDACTIONS.

On Monday, President Trump went scorched earth and ordered an immediate declassification of Carter Page FISA docs. Trump also ordered the DOJ to publicly release all text messages WITHOUT REDACTION relating to the Russia investigation from James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.

The Democrats lost their collective minds over President Trump’s declassification order and immediately got to work to undermine his authority.

Russian FM: US Proposed Refugees Leave Rukban Camp for Syrian Army Territory

The US proposed refugees at the Rukban Camp in southern Homs leave the area for Syrian government-held territories, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday afternoon
***
The US and Russian governments have been at odds over the fate of the Rukban Refugee Camp, with both sides trading accusations over the suffering of the people there.

Due to the US’ control over the Tanf Zone in southern Homs, the Damascus and Moscow have blamed Washington for the plight of the refugees, adding that their occupation of this vast desert area has done more harm than good.

In turn, the US has accused the Syrian and Russian governments of purposely prohibiting aid from reaching the Rukban Camp.

With the recent departure of one of the largest US-backed rebel groups in the Tanf Zone, it appears that the US is working to find a solution to issue with the Rukban Camp and their eventual departure from the area.

Trump official wants students prosecuted for Israel protests

The Trump administration’s top civil rights enforcer at the US Department of Education wanted students who did nothing but hold a noisy protest in support of Palestinian rights to be criminally prosecuted.

Kenneth Marcus was captured on camera during a September 2016 meeting with an undercover reporter working on Al Jazeera’s explosive documentary about the US Israel lobby.

The documentary has never been broadcast due to censorship by Qatar, which funds Al Jazeera, following pressure from pro-Israel organizations.

The above video obtained by The Electronic Intifada is the latest excerpt to leak from the documentary. It shows Marcus speaking to the undercover reporter.

At the time, Marcus was director of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, an Israel lobby group unaffiliated with Brandeis University. The Brandeis Center specializes in lawfare – the use of legal proceedings to harass and silence Israel’s critics.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump says exposing ‘corrupt’ FBI probe could be ‘crowning achievement’ of presidency

President Trump in an exclusive interview with Hill.TV said Tuesday he ordered the release of classified documents in the Russia collusion case to show the public the FBI probe started as a “hoax” and that exposing it could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency.

“What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really,” Trump said in a 45-minute, wide-ranging interview in the Oval Office.

“I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done ... in its own way this might be the most important thing because this was corrupt,” he said.

Trump also said he regretted not firing former FBI Director James Comey immediately instead of waiting until May 2017, confirming an account his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, gave Hill.TV earlier in the day that Trump was dismayed in 2016 by the way Comey handled the Hillary Clinton email case and began discussing firing him well before he became president.

The War for the President’s Mind

The Woodward book is supposed to be a blow against the Trump administration for supposedly depicting an administration in “chaos,” but it actually manages to show the foreign policy aspect of Trump’s White House in its best light, albeit unintentionally. Woodward, being the swamp-creature that he is, uncritically cites administration officials who denounce Trump’s Singapore peace initiative with North Korea as prima facie evidence that the man is unhinged. This is the conventional wisdom inside the Washington Beltway: out in the real world, however, Trump’s view is evidence of his sanity. While the political class is worried that declaring the Korean war over and done with will pull the plug on the US military occupation of South Korea – a possibility Woodward conjures as a kind of Armageddon — normal Americans are hoping to see the troops come home after nearly 70 years!

Camp David created Oslo, which killed the Palestinian struggle

After Camp David and Oslo, the Palestinians are left with a political elite that no longer stands for their struggle.

This was a deal made by unequal adversaries, with one exploiting the weakness of the other in order to impose its demands.

The Oslo Accords effectively put an end to the PLO's struggle for the liberation of Palestine and facilitated the occupation by making it less costly for the Israeli state. The establishing of the Palestinian Authority relieved Israel of the burden of providing for the needs of the Palestinian people. It also set up a Palestinian-run security body which took up policing the Palestinians, making it easier for Israel to control them and suppress the popular struggle.

China has no intention of weakening its currency to help exporters and will not engage in any form of “competitive devaluation” of its exchange rate, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Wednesday, a day after the latest tit-for-tat measures in the US trade war.

Li told the World Economic Forum in Tianjin that Beijing had not manipulated the exchange rate of yuan to cope with trade tensions, rejecting speculation that the Chinese government deliberately engineered the 8 per cent depreciation of the yuan seen since March to offset the effects of US tariffs on Chinese imports.

“Some people think China deliberately [devalued the yuan]; this is groundless,” Li said, in an indirect response to US President Donald Trump’s allegations that Beijing is manipulating its currency.

US-China trade war heats up as Beijing hits back at US President Donald Trump’s new tariffs

China has hit back at fresh US tariffs on Chinese goods, announcing its own additional duties on US$60 billion worth of American imports as the trade war escalates between the world’s two biggest economies.

All of these anti-Semitism allegations continue to sideline Palestinian suffering

As the row over what constitutes anti-Semitism rages in Britain, the very real fear that freedom of speech is being threatened has already been realised in America, according to one Jewish campaign group. At the heart of the argument is a decision by the Trump administration to change how the Education Department investigates allegations that Jewish students face discrimination; not surprisingly, the Trump team has backed an approach that is endorsed by pro-Israel groups.

The policy change has already prompted the reinvestigation of an event held seven years ago, involving Holocaust and Nakba survivors, which was deemed to be anti-Semitic because it included criticism of the Israeli government. The reopening of the 2011 case, dismissed under the Obama administration, means that anyone who supports Palestinian human rights is potentially going to be regarded as an anti-Semite, says Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).

Down the Financial Rabbit Hole With President Trump

Once upon a time, there was a little-known energy company called Enron. In its 16-year life, it went from being dubbed America’s most innovative company by Fortune Magazine to being the poster child of American corporate deceit. Using a classic recipe for book-cooking, Enron ended up in bankruptcy with jail time for those involved. Its shareholders lost $74 billion in the four years leading up to its bankruptcy in 2001.

A decade ago, the flameout of my former employer, Lehman Brothers, the global financial firm, proved far more devastating, contributing as it did to a series of events that ignited a global financial meltdown. Americans lost an estimated $12.8 trillion in the havoc.

Despite the differing scales of those disasters, there was a common thread: both companies used financial tricks to make themselves appear so much healthier than they actually were. They both faked the numbers, thanks to off-the-books or offshore mechanisms and eluded investigations... until they collapsed.

Now, here’s a question for you as we head for the November midterm elections, sure to be seen as a referendum on the president: Could Donald Trump be a one-man version of either Enron or Lehman Brothers, someone who cooked “the books” until, well, he imploded?

Zionists like Sheldon Adelson pushed Trump to pull out of Iran nuclear deal: Scholar

US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal under pressure from the Zionists like Sheldon Adelson and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, an American scholar says.

Adelson, a billionaire Zionist casino owner and Republican party funder, and Netanyahu pressured Trump into pulling out of the of the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), James Fetzer, a prominent American political philosopher, told Press TV in a telephone interview on Saturday.

“What is outrageous is that Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal for no good reason,” Fetzer said.

US intelligence services -- on several occasions -- including Israeli Mossad had confirmed that the Iranian government was not in pursuit of developing nuclear weapons, the scholar said.

A day after unveiling his first major charitable initiative (an announcement that arrived, coincidentally, we're sure, after a bruising week of headlines detailing the latest crop of worker-abuse allegations directed at Amazon), Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos (also the world's wealthiest man) disappointed hundreds of powerful people who had convened to hear him speak - as rumors swirled that he might reveal the location of Amazon's much-hyped HQ2 - last night at the Economic Club of Washington DC.

MATTIS Vs. TRUMP: MUTINY WITHIN The TRUMP WHITE HOUSE 

On the issue of Korea, it is becoming increasingly clear that General “Mad Dog” Mattis, General John Kelly, and the Pentagon top brass do not see eye to eye with Donald Trump on a whole host of issues, including:

1. Withdrawal of some 28,000 U.S. troops from the Korean Peninsula.

Trump does not understand why both South Korea and Japan, both wealthy and developed, have to “mooch off” on U.S. military security protection, and not bear the burden for their own defense, and why the American military presence is even needed in East Asia.

How Christian Zionists got their man into the White House ...

***
On 18 July, US Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote speech at the annual summit of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Founded in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee, an evangelist from San Antonio, CUFI claims to be the largest pro-Israel group in the United States, with three million members. Hagee endorsed Donald Trump for president in May 2016
***
Pence's speech marks a fundamental change in the language that the White House has historically employed to articulate the United States' relationship with Israel," Dan Hummel, a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, wrote in the Washington Post.

That fundamental change is towards Christian Zionism, an ideology that bases its political support for Israel on the belief that the modern state of Israel is a manifestation of prophecies in the Bible - and that the very fate of the United States is prophetically linked with Israel.

Hummel describes Pence as an "ardent Christian Zionist" who expresses his support for Israel in explicitly prophetic terms>>>>

Conceding Defeat in Iraq: The US Has Only Itself To Blame For Iran’s Growing Influence In The Country

***Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed “proxies” of Iran for recent attacks at the US consulate in Basra and near the American embassy compound in Baghdad’s ‘Green Zone’, adding that “Iran did not act to stop these attacks by its proxies in Iraq, which it has supported with funding, training, and weapons.”
There can be no disputing that Iran wields immense, if not overwhelming, influence in Iraq and that Gen. Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ Qods Brigade, is a kingmaker in Baghdad. He oversaw the process of foiling the independence referendum which Masoud Barzani held in Iraqi Kurdistan. He also played the key role in establishing the Popular Mobilization forces and other armed groups that fought a ferocious campaign to eject the Islamic State group (Daesh) from Mosul and other Iraqi cities. At present, he is focusing his efforts on putting together the new Iraqi government.
But this growing Iranian influence is a consequence of the American invasion of the country 15 years>>>

China is just partnering with other countries on infrastructure projects ‘to grab their assets’, says US agency that oversees financing for international development

The head of the US government’s international finance development agency has stepped up criticism of China’s overseas investment strategy, dismissing Beijing’s efforts to give it greater legitimacy by partnering with other countries on infrastructure projects and accusing China of being “in it to grab their assets”.

Pushing back against international criticism that China’s finance model is predatory and smothers recipient countries in debt they cannot pay, Chinese officials and state media have recently scrambled to play down the geopolitical nature of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, instead focusing on sustainable development and job creation for recipient economies.

More Strzok-Page…strategic leaking was the name of the game

Over the past few days, a few of the Strzok-Page texts from the curious “gap period” of December, 2016, to May, 2017, have trickled out. That was the time covering the Trump transition and the first several months of his administration (including then-FBI Director James Comey’s signing of the third FISA renewal on Carter Page), when leaks were wildly rampant. And now we understand why they were. We know from the texts that former FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, who was then the legal assistant to Andrew “Andy’s office” McCabe, were strategically leaking to the media. (McCabe is alleged to have been doing so as well.) This, quite obviously, was “the media leak strategy” coordinated with the DOJ. They were happy that the story they wanted picked up –- the one about Trump campaign associate Carter Page being put under surveillance for having suspicious contacts with RUSSIANS!! — was picked up.

The author claimed they were trying to stop Trump from putting his agenda in place because it was dangerous to the country.

But Trump campaigned on an “America First” agenda.

And the American people elected him.

The author also claimed the cabinet discussed using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Therefore, the Deep State is not only working against Trump, but the will of the American people.

Many critics said the op-ed was a coup against the President.

They also claimed it proved Trump’s fears about the Deep State correct.

This is apparently the first US-led effort to track fuel deliveries to North Korea.

Israeli Stooge, Pompeo, Slams John Kerry for Meeting Iranian Officials

We can't really think of anything insulting enough to say about Pompeo as a sub-headline...sorry

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s meetings with Iranian officials on the scrapped international nuclear deal were “unseemly and unprecedented,” his successor Michael Pompeo said on Friday.

“What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented,” Pompeo told reporters at the State Department. Pompeo accused Kerry of engaging “with the world’s largest state sponsor of terror” and said the meetings were “inconsistent with the foreign policy of the United Sates.”

The top US diplomat also noted that Iran has fired rockets toward US embassy in Baghdad this week and has “taken action” against the US consulate in the Iraqi city of Basra. Earlier on Friday, Trump slammed Kerry for “illegal meetings with very hostile Iranian regime” and questioned whether Kerry has filed under the Foreign Agent Registration Act>>>...

A spokesperson for Kerry said in a statement to The Hill on Friday: "Kerry stays in touch with his former counterparts around the world just like every previous secretary of state.

"There's nothing unusual, let alone unseemly or inappropriate, about former diplomats meeting with foreign counterparts ... What is unseemly and unprecedented is for the podium of the State Department to be hijacked for political theatrics," the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, Kerry took to Twitter to respond to Trump, saying: "Mr. President, you should be more worried about Paul Manafort meeting with Robert Mueller than me meeting with Iran's FM. But if you want to learn something about the nuclear agreement that made the world safer, buy my new book."

The writing is on the wall – If Syria and Russia continue to prosecute the operation against US-backed terrorists in Syria, the US and their lackeys will attack Syria, and the US will unleash their Ukro-nazi attack dogs against the Donbass Republics. The implication being that if Syria and Russia desist from the operation to clear Idlib and Syria from the last few remaining abscesses of US-backed terrorism in Syria, the perilous situation will be de-escalated, and US control of Idlib and their terrorists there will become the status quo. Again, for a while. Ostensibly, in return, the big ukrop attack on Donbass Republics will also be shelved, at least for the moment. Or so they seem to be implying.

Among other areas, this includes the National Mall, Lafayette Park, the Lincoln Memorial and the sidewalk in front of Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The federal Pay-to-Protest in DC plan includes charging demonstrators for the cost of barricades and fencing erected at discretion of police; salaries of personnel deployed to monitor the protest; trash removal and sanitation charges; permit application fees and costs that the government will assess on “harm to turf.”

Yellow Journalism of Yellow-Bellied Bob Woodward & the NYT

It takes no time at all. You listen to Bob Woodward’s halting speech. You read his lumpen prose, and you get right away what undergirds his Trump-phobic tome, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

Naively, the president had expected to fulfill his revolutionary campaign promises to the American voters, an assumption that threw Woodward and the D.C. elites for a loop.

If past is prologue, voters don’t—and should not—get their way. After all, the views of Trump voters on American power are polar opposites of those held by the permanent state.

What does “Boobus Americanus” know? Nothing!

Woodward and the New York Times’ anonymous anti-Trump whistleblower consider the president to be stark raving bonkers for not grasping that Rome on the Potomac moves to its own beat. It does not respond to voters, except to mollify them with “bread and circuses.”

Hopes that the United States and China could soon break their trade impasse took a fresh hit on Thursday after US President Donald Trump said his administration was under no pressure to make a deal.

“We are under no pressure to make a deal with China, they are under pressure to make a deal with us,” he said. “Our markets are surging, theirs are collapsing. We will soon be taking in Billions in Tariffs & making products at home.”
