We are entering a new era of governance, purpose in our country, it is therefore befitting to welcome the new era to include Domestic Policy in the updates. Truly the changes in our new domestic policies will have global reach and impacts. President Trump has wasted no time in enacting legislation he feels is needed in America. In his first week, these are actions taken.
Obamacare. An order stating the White House intent to “repeal” Barack Obama’s healthcare law. It directs agencies to avoid imposing penalties on individuals and others who do not obtain health insurance or who otherwise contravene the law. It directs agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” other penalties, fees, taxes and costs
Health aid and abortion. A memo restricting funds for global health assistance groups that provide abortion services.
Withdrawal from TPP.(Trans Pacific Pipeline)
Federal hiring freeze. A memo imposing a freeze on the hiring of federal civilian employees “across the board in the executive branch”.
Dakota Access pipeline. A memo reopening a nearly completed project to build a crude oil pipeline from North Dakota to Illinois. The pipeline was stopped after sustained protests by Native American groups, who said the pipeline crossed sacred land and threatened to contaminate a tribe’s water supply. In December, the US army corps of engineers denied a permit for the pipeline to drill under the Missouri river.
US steel for US pipes. A memo directing the commerce department to develop a plan to use steel made entirely in the United States for all pipeline projects.
Attack on sanctuary cities. An order denying federal funds to “sanctuary cities” – more than 400 cities and counties that offer some form of safe haven to America’s 11 million undocumented migrants. The order instructs the Department of Homeland Security to publish a weekly list of so-called “criminal actions” committed by undocumented migrants and publicly announce which jurisdictions had previously “ignored or otherwise failed” to detain the accused individuals. It calls for support for victims of crimes committed by “removable aliens” and demands reporting on the immigration status of all federal prisoners.
Build a border wall. An order calling for the “immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border”, for stricter enforcement of immigration laws and for speedier deportations. About 700 miles of fencing already exists along the 2,000-mile border. The order calls for a campaign for congressional funding, maybe unnecessarily; congressional Republicans say they will fund the wall, estimated to cost $12bn-$15bn upfront
Extreme vetting’. The draft included a 120-day ban on refugees being resettled in the US and an indefinite ban on the resettlement of Syrian refugees. It would also cap the total number of refugees entering the US in 2017 to 50,000 – more than half the previous year’s figure of 117,000.
The draft indicated that visas would be suspended to people from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Iran for the next 30 days.
WASHINGTON: With US President Donald Trump’s formal executive order to establish “safe zones” in Syria expected imminently, experts see the plan as realistic in at least two areas of the country.
Remarks: For those who disagree with his stopping the flow of immigrants coming from the seven countries noted above, particularly Syria, keep in mind he is trying to do things to help the Syrians, over there in their country and that is good governance.

We start off with Iran, because there is a lot going on over there, and also with Russia because we really need to have better relations with them for our own security.
IRAN, PAKISTAN & RUSSIA
Even Iran is giving Kudos to the US for it’s standing in the international community.
Standing after the United States of America, China, Japan, Russia, Germany and India, the report ranked Iran in the 7th place.
While Congress is trying to stir the pot once again.
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio, Todd Young and John Cornyn reintroduced the Iran Non-nuclear Sanctions Act, legislation that would impose harsh financial and economic sanctions countering Iran’s non-nuclear provocations,
Iran is ready to join the Pakistan China Economic Corridor. This is problematic if President Trump takes China to task.
China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a mega project between the two countries under which China will invest $46 billion in Pakistan. Durrani pointed to the hurdles in trade between Iran and Pakistan, and said, "The unavailability of banking channel is one of the biggest reasons of limited trade between the two countries; through exploiting trade and investment opportunities, mutual trade volume could easily touch new heights."
Durrani invited the Pakistani businessmen to participate in the 'Aleeshan Pakistan' exhibition slated for March 4-7 in Tehran, adding that it would provide an opportunity to establish new contacts with their Iranian counterparts, which is essential to boost two-way trade.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh announced that his forces will take part in a massive military drill in the near future. No matter what the enemies do and even if they try to impose restrictions on Iran, "we will not stop enhancement of our capability, knowledge and production in defense fields, specially the missile industry", Hajizadeh said, addressing Iranian university officials and professors in Tehran.
Assad says he appreciate’s Iran’s role in Syria.
"We support the Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting the resistance of the Syrian government and nation in their non-stop war on Muslim nation," President Assad said in a meeting with Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian in Damascus.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi officially invited Head of the Pakistani Senate Reza Rabbani to attend an international conference in support of Palestine slated for February 20 in Tehran. He pointed to a recent trilateral agreement signed by Iran, India and Afghanistan, and said, "There is no rivalry between Chabahar port of Iran and Gwadar port of Pakistan as both ports complement each other."
United States Senator John McCain made clear comments on rising speculation that President Donald Trump is considering lifting sanctions on Russia, said he hoped the administration would reject that “reckless course.” “If he does not, I will work with my colleagues to codify sanctions against Russia into law,” McCain, one of the Republican party’s senior foreign policy voices, said in a statement.
Damascus has a water shortage due to insurgents. 5.5 million people have been heavily effected since December.
Remarks: I am hopeful that our new domestic policies will positively impact our foreign policies and decrease the incidence of terror attacks in this country. In just this short time, look at how many things our new Commander in Chief has addressed. We will not all agree with everything he does, but at least he is trying.

Four states are suing Trump over the travel ban he imposed between 7 states that we are currently involved with wars against Isis and other groups. On Friday, Trump ordered a suspension of arrivals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, including refugees.
New York, Massachusetts and Virginia on Tuesday joined Washington state on a growing list of states challenging the travel ban that caused chaos at airports in those states and beyond at the weekend as people with valid immigration documents were detained or deported after arriving on flights from overseas.
On Tuesday New York joined a federal lawsuit against Trump’s executive order brought by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, the Urban Justice Center and others.
Eric Schneiderman, the New York state attorney general, described the order signed last Friday as “unconstitutional, unlawful, and fundamentally un-American”.
Remarks: Oh whippin' post. I got a feeling this is the beginning of our next civil war. Seriously, there will be states who had large marjorities of people who voted for Trump, like and agree with his ideas, and then the others who want to find fault and accuse him of any and everything. If we were closer in time to 9.11.01 perhaps people would be more concerned, but it seems enough time has passed that now people just don't think anything else can/will happen. I have read reports in alternative media, there are former government workers who will tell you they KNOW Isis wants to breach our borders at Tijuana, Mexico/California, Brownsville, Texas, the Canadian borders of Minnesota and Michigan. If that happens, then that will be Trump's fault also for not finding a way to keep America safe. They will say 'see he is unqualified for the job'. Our borders must be secured and that will create some problems. The people who want to go back home to their families can Skype with them, until the problems are solved here.
This has not been widely reported, but this is also part of this travel ban.
Travellers to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries singled out for "extreme vetting" will face scrutiny of their social media activity and phone records, the new US Homeland Security secretary, John Kelly has said.
Further remarks: I am a big proponent of freedom of speech, thought, religion, and the press, coupled with the privacy protections that our Constitution guarantees. There has already been censorship by Twitter of individuals who are discussing controversial things related to terrorism and foreign policies of different countries. If people from other countries have to submit to being monitored here when others aren't, is that singling them out, is it discriminatory, illegal? Will everyone have to face the Orwellian style snooping by the NSA in order for us to let people from other countries in here? I don't have answers for all of this.

AFGHANISTAN AND YEMEN
US airstrikes have continued in Afghanistan in Sangin District, Helmand Province. The problem is we keep shooting the wrong people.
One picture is worth a thousand words, so here it is.
Remarks: I am confident or new Commander in Chief will work towards stopping our complicity in the atrocities that have been taking place abroad.
gina - 2/12/2017 at 07:54 PM
As mentioned, we will include domestic policy as it relates to foreign policy in this new edition of the updates.
This is Trump greeting the Prime Minister of Japan.
While the meetings went well with Japan, it was not as amenable with Mexico. Many of you know that there were reports of the drug cartels helping to fund Isis and other fighters who reportedly wanted to breach the borders in Tijuana and also Brownsville going up into Texas.
There was a phone call Trump had with Mexican President, Nieto and the Associated Press reported that he threatened to invade Mexico if they did not take care of the people in their own country who were trying to destabilize our borders. President Nieto denies what was reported.
“The assertions that you make about said conversation do not correspond to the reality of it,” the Mexican government said in a statement. “The tone was constructive … and it was agreed by the presidents to continue working and that the teams will continue to meet frequently to construct an agreement that is positive for Mexico and for the United States.”
Remarks: So there you have it. Yes the phone call occurred. No Trump did NOT threaten to send our military there to do Mexico's job of dealing with dissident citizens or others. He will not however, let groups of criminals subsidized by the cartels help these groups get into the US. The wall will be built, but meanwhile, he will protect it, if he has to send in some special forces to deal with a localized problem, that would certainly be an option.

Today, Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding trade issues and also growing women's businesses. The issue of Syria accepting refugees while the US wants to keep Syrians out for now (until they are properly vetted) came up. The Canadian Prime Minister did say that he would not tell another world leader how to govern in his own country.
Yeah I know you want some video. Remember Donald has a You Tube Channel, President Trump News. The videos for the conference are here.

Just as Trudeau said Canadians wouldn't want an American President to come to their country and tell them what they should and shouldn't be doing. Canada is an outstanding nation and ally. Foreign policy I think should be finding and expanding upon common goals and agenda items, compromising to another's needs when appropriate so long as they at times, compromise to our needs. We need not impose our beliefs on any other nation to the extent it doesn't directly impact a vital national security interest.

Agreed. That's one of the stark differences between him and Hillary. She wanted to continue with the let's bring democracy to nations overseas nation building idea. Trump would rather concentrate on the US, but he is getting to know other leaders so he can do mutually beneficial trade deals. He will be a world leader as well as one of America's most memorable Presidents. He has international business experience, and that should help.

Very disconcerting is that there has been a Russian submarine 30 miles off the coast of our Navy attacker submarine base. That's right, up there in Connecticut is the base with 15 of our attack submarines. We have also three coast guard bases up there too. The media tried to play it down as oh they just sent an intelligence gathering sub up there to try to spy on us, and we do the same thing to them, and everybody knows it. One article said quoting the Pentagon "we in this building are not worried about it". Well they certainly were concerned on the Hill. John McCain and his colleagues on the Senate Intelligence Committee had a meeting today about the developments. The sub was originally off Washington, D.C., then it went up to Connecticut, and has been there all day. One newspaper said they thought it was going to Cuba after it leaves our waters. I don't know where they got that from. (Hartford Courant)
Now I am sure the Navy has decently encrypted telecommunications equipment so their info. is safe. What concerns me is prophecy by certain people, the lady I mentioned in California who foresaw Russia attacking the US, bombing DC and Chicago, and others who said that when Russia decides to go to all out war with us, they will invade from a beach off Delaware, their sub will surface and their troops will come off it.
Do I feel safe with Trump at the helm as Commander in Chief? Yes. He will step up, take swift, decisive action and deal with any threats, but I do have concerns.
Some people in the govt. are still taking it upon themselves to meet with foreign liasons on their own, unbeknownst to the Commander in Chief. This happened during the Bush Jr. regime, it reportedly happened under Obama every Wednesday on the 7th Floor of a building with Hillary and the New World Order shadow govt. meeting to discuss things they needed to. While it does not relate to the Russia problem, why was the CIA Chief meeting with Abbas in secret talks BEFORE, Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu's official visit with Trump today? Was Trump aware of it? The reporter suggests that he was not, but he has said even during his campaign that he would not make public all things of what the intelligence community were doing.
Trump plans to also visit Britain soon, protests will occur, but it will not sway this bastian of law and order from the swift completion of his rounds as our President. So the protesters might as well accept it.
P.S. There was an article that said Congress was considering authorizing sending ground troops to Syria. BIG Mistake. Assad + Russia + Iran are friends. US troops will not be welcome. Why do we keep sacrificing American lives to countries that have not even attacked us? Are we idiots?
"At his confirmation hearing, Mattis was not asked about putting more troops into Syria, but he did explain how he would seek to change US military efforts in Iraq and Syria from Obama administration. "I think it's getting there as rapidly as possible, where it would be a more accelerated campaign," Mattis said. Sending troops to Syria is just one of several ideas that may be presented to the President, the official said.
Remark: Oh whippin' post, no, no, no, don't send troops there....

Russian Spy Ships off of our coast in International waters is nothing new, even armed ones.
gina - 2/16/2017 at 01:00 AM
True, we think that we are the only ones out there spying on the world. But here are some other things that have come up. Russia has said it will not give back the Ukraine. I did not know anyone asked them to. Trump pointed out that Russia annexing the Ukraine occurred during Obama's administration. I really doubt that anyone would have agreed that we should go there and fight to try to stop them. Turns out there seems to be compelling reasons why Russia wanted the Ukraine.
While reading the below link, interesting user comment...
"This is what Trump and Putin are up to:
Exxon Mobil, under Rex Tillerson, brokered a deal with Russia in 2013 to lease over 60 million acres of Russian land to pump oil out of (which is five times as much land as they lease in this country), but all that Russian oil would go through pipelines in the Ukraine, who heavily tax the proceeds, and Ukraine was applying for admission into NATO at the time.
Putin subsequently invaded Ukraine in 2014, secured the routes to export the oil tax-free by sea, and took control of the port where their Black Sea Naval Fleet is based, by taking the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine by force. This was Hitler style imperialism that broke every international law in the free world.
After Obama sanctioned Russia for the invasion, Exxon Mobil could only pump oil from approximately 3 of those 60+ million acres. But now Rex Tillerson is soon to be our Secretary of State, and as of today, there’s information circulating that Donald Trump will likely unilaterally remove all sanctions against Russia in the coming days or weeks.
The Russian government’s oil company, Rosneft, will make half a trillion (500 Billion) dollars from that much untapped oil, all pumped tax-free through Crimea, stolen from Ukraine, now owned by Russia. Putin may have subverted our government just for this deal to go through.
Please share this EVERYWHERE, copy and paste if you like. Fact check away"
Remarks: Why is it always about the OIL?

YEMEN, RUSSIA & UAE
The missiles possessed by the Yemeni army and Ansarullah have high-precision capabilities so that the third generation of Patriot missile defense systems cannot track them, the Arabic-language al-Massira news channel reported. The US equipped Saudi Arabia with advanced Patriot anti-ballistic missile interceptors in 2016.
Remarks: The US launched it's first drone attacks in Yemen on January 24th. The US has also sold Saudi Arabia technology/weaponry to use in Yemen, some of which has killed innocent children and women. When we give weapons to other countries and those weapons are used to kill people, we are complicit in those deaths, which angers locals, creating more than anti-US sentiment. People want to know why there are terror attacks and the desire for them in the US, it is because of our foreign policy and helping other countries in their regional wars. We need to let them fight their own battles and stop endangering lives here at home. That is the answer.
Remark: Eventually the US could be left by itself, with all the other nations allied with each other. We need to stop fighting in their wars. We need to let Trump Make America Great Again, stay home secure our borders and mind our own business, develop good trade deals, and stop war mongering.

They found a mass grave outside of Mosul with 1,000 dead bodies in it. It is believed that Isis uses the place as one of their dumping grounds.
Russia and China on Tuesday vetoed a UN resolution backed by Western powers that would have imposed sanctions on Syria over chemical weapons use. The measure drafted by Britain, France and the United States won nine votes in favor at the Security Council while three countries opposed it -- China, Russia and Bolivia. Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Egypt abstained. Russia, china block bid by western powers to impose UN sanctions on Syria over accusations of chemical weapons attacks
Bomb threats forced evacuations at Jewish schools and community centers in 11 states Monday, with the Jewish Community Center Association confirming threats in states ranging from Florida to Michigan. In Ann Arbor, police gave the all-clear after a Hebrew day school was threatened, forcing students to leave. Today, bomb threats were called into schools and/or JCCs in Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia,” the JCC Association of North America says. “Many affected institutions have already been declared clear and have returned to regular operations. All previous bomb threats to JCCs this year were determined to be hoaxes.”
Remarks: 11 States? Someone is planning something. I recall the prophecy by the lady named Annie from California, who said that certain rogue elements within the US govt. would allow Isis to plant bombs in schools in the US and slaughter 100,000 children, which would create nationwide sentiment for a full blown war on the Middle East. The schools in her prophecy were elementary schools. Schools in 11 states received bomb threats. 11 States.
RAMALLAH, February 28, 2017 (WAFA) – The Israeli prosecutor called on the Supreme Court to reject a petition by Palestinian rights groups demanding that the Israeli authorities free corpses of six Palestinians shot dead by Israeli forces in the last year and which it has been holding since then.
Remarks: Can't they at least have the dignity to return the remains?
Yes whippin' posters, there are things going on in Af Pak. There are journalists who have been abducted in Pakistan, it is believed their intel/military snatched them to keep them quiet. Journalists in other countries have to be willing to die so that the truth prevails, and many have.

Hungary’s parliament has allowed authorities to systematically detain all asylum seekers in shipping containers in border areas, a controversial move that is in line with anti-refugee policies adopted by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has labelled refugees as a “Trojan horse of terrorism.”
The Hungarian parliament, known as the National Assembly, approved the harsh measures, which also include women and children, on Tuesday, adding that all asylum seekers setting foot on the country’s soil, as well as those who are already inside Hungary, would be held in container camps on the southern borders with Serbia until a final decision is made on their asylum requests.
Remarks: Guess that's why Isis doesn't go to Hungary. Are there any international standards on how refugees are to be permitted, what rights they have, or can each country just create their own standards?

On the principle of letting foreign countries deal with their own regional problems, I agree.
However I feel the US must be militarily engaged in Yemen. Yemen has long been a hot bed for radical islam and cells there have actively plotted against the US. Two lines of thought, if we do not engage in military strikes against a country then their people will not hate us and not seek to unleash terror attacks on our country and interests. The other line of thinking is that by being militarily involved in a primary or secondary role, the local people will resent and hate the US for it. I reject the thinking that in a country like Yemen that if we just stay out of it somehow the terror and murder loving radicals in their country will somehow grow a new found respect for us. Ain't happening. In my mind, Yemen is a critical battlefield in the war against radical islamic terrorism and should remain a target of US intelligence and military efforts.
Bigger picture, the more we can build coalitions of common interests with the Saudi government and Jordan and other middle eastern countries the better. At the very least it gives the radicals several targets to direct their resources against rather than focusing solely on big bad USA. Plus the more muslims involved in the fighting dispells the notion that this is strictly a judeo/christian vs muslim war.

Malaysia says it foiled attack on Arab royalty ahead of Saudi king's visit
World News | Tue Mar 7, 2017 | 12:47pm EST
Malaysia said on Tuesday that suspected militants from Yemen arrested late last month ahead of a visit by Saudi King Salman had been planning an attack on Arab royalty.
A senior Malaysian police source said the four suspects belonged to Yemen's Iran-allied Houthi movement, which hails from a Shi'ite Muslim sect and has been fighting other Yemeni forces backed by a Saudi-led military coalition for two years.
Malaysian police had previously said the men were suspected of links to militant groups including Islamic State, which is Sunni Muslim and known by the Arabic acronym Daesh.
A Saudi source said that it was still not certain whether the suspects supported the Houthis or Islamic State, but that the arrests showed why security "represents the bulk of the entourage in foreign official trips".
"It is no doubt a terrorist act. Should it be Daesh or Houthis supported by Iran, this is what the local Malaysian investigation will reveal," the Saudi source said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to media.
The king arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Feb. 26 with a 600-strong delegation for a four-day visit at the start of a month-long Asia tour. On Tuesday he was in Indonesia.
Between Feb. 21 and Feb. 26, Malaysia arrested one Malaysian and six foreigners - the four Yemenis, one Indonesian and one East Asian - for suspected links to militant groups including Islamic State, police had said in a statement on Sunday.
Speaking on Tuesday, Malaysia's police chief said the four Yemenis were plotting an attack on Arab royalty.
"Four Yemenis, apart from their role involving in producing false travel documents they are also involved in distributing drugs... and they are also planning to attack the Arab royalties during the visit in Kuala Lumpur, so we got them in the nick of time," Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters.
The Yemenis were arrested in Serdang and Cyberjaya - near the capital Kuala Lumpur - Malaysian police had said on Sunday.
Also In World News
Police seized multiple international passports from the four, along with 270,000 ringgit ($60,000) in different currencies which police said they suspected were intended to be channeled to insurgents.
Police have said the Malaysian and the Indonesian who were arrested in late February were planning to launch a large-scale attack using a "vehicle-borne improvised explosive device".
Malaysia has arrested hundreds of people with suspected militant links during recent years. The Southeast Asian nation has been on high alert since suicide bombers and gunmen linked to Islamic State launched multiple attacks in Jakarta, the capital of neighboring Indonesia, in January 2016.
A grenade attack on a bar on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur in June last year wounded eight people. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants a dialogue with President Trump. So much so, that he is taking to twitter like Trump, and addressed a letter to Trump.
He spoke on many things, and he reveals his opinion on women.
"women depict God's beauty, and are God's most beautiful and valuable gift".
"True freedom is the hope of all of humanity, which can only be gained with the will and participation of all countries"
"We all originate from the same root and truth, and have been created to love."
"The merciful creator created all human beings from the essence of love. Let's all love each other"
REMARKS: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has never been the person portrayed in the Western media. His speeches have reflected that. I hope he and Trump will get to know each other and realize they are not at odds with each other. He also NEVER said that most quoted remark about 'bombing Israel off the face of the earth' that was a mis-translation from his original speech.
P.S. Trump really needs to start having a dialogue with Iran, even if it starts with the former President.
The comments come after IRGC fast-attack vessels forced on Saturday the USNS Invincible and three ships from the British Royal Navy accompanying it to change direction in the Strait of Hormuz.
“Such provocations can have irreversible consequences,” Admiral Mehdi Hashemi said, dismissing claims by U.S. officials that it was the IRGC boats that had come within 600 yards of the U.S. warship.
“A U.S. warship from the American and British fleet that was passing the traffic zone of the Strait of Hormuz, changed direction from the international route toward the boats of the IRGC navy.”
While warning, the U.S. warship had acted “unprofessionally” and had come within 550 meters of the boats, Hashemi added, accusing Washington of resorting to “lying” and “propaganda techniques.”
The U.S. Navy presence in the Persian Gulf, Iran says, has jeopardized the security and stability of the strategic region which the U.S. Energy Information Agency calls "the world’s most important oil chokepoint.”

The US evaculated two Isis Commanders from Mosul.
Javad al-Talaybawi said that the US forces carried out the heliborne operation in one of the Western neighborhoods of Western Mosul, evacuating two senior ISIL commanders to an unknown location after the commanders came under siege by Iraqi government forces in intensified clashes in Western Mosul.
"Americans' support and assistance to the ISIL is done openly to save their regional plan in a desperately attempt," al-Talaybawi underlined. Al-Talaybawi had warned late in February that the US forces tried hard to evacuate ISIL commanders from the besieged city of Tal Afar West of Mosul.
After photos surfaced in the media displaying US forces assisting ISIL terrorists, al-Talaybawi said that the Americans were planning to take ISIL commanders away from Tal Afar that is under the Iraqi forces' siege. The news comes as the Iraqi army had reported that the US air force has been helping the ISIL terrorists in areas controlled by the terrorist group. The Iraqi army says that the US army is trying to transfer the ISIL commanders trapped in areas besieged by the Iraqi army to safe regions.
US working on a new strategy to kill Taliban..
REMARKS: We help Isis, and we kill Taliban. Afghanistan belongs to the Afghans, the citizens of Afghanistan have the right to determine their own future. The Taliban are native Afghans. They flew no planes into any towers, they do not want to come to any country to take it over, they did not support/allow their country to be used by any forces who did have those aspirations.

Here is the full text of the former Iranian president to the US President.
In the name of God, The Compassionate, The Merciful
Praise belongs to God, the Lord of the worlds, and God’s blessings be upon the seal of prophets and messengers, Mohammad al-Mostafa and his pure household, and upon all prophets, messengers and the righteous.
O God, hasten the reappearance of your savior, and bestow upon him health and triumph, and have us among the best of his supporters and aids, and those seeking sacrifice before him.
To: His Excellency, Mr. Donald John Trump
The president of the United States of America
Your Excellency has been elected, in the recent US election, as the president of the country.
It can be inferred from the political and media atmosphere in the US that the result of the election has been despite the status quo, and beyond the will and prediction of the governing body and the main system behind the scene of the US political stage.
The stances of the rival party and some of your party members and most western leaders suggest the same notion. Irrespective of whether or not that is true, the recent election revealed part of the actual and accumulated demands of the US people.
Welcoming this and hoping it will have an effect, I hereby share some points with you, whereas I’d tried in the past to convey some important matters to the two preceding presidents, via letters.
1- This letter is by no means political, in the common sense of the world; nonetheless, today it is from a human to another human. The letter is from a humane standpoint, rooted in interest toward and compassion for the American nation and other nations, and I expect your Excellency to read it from the same perspective, adopting a humane approach.
2- I speak as the son of the great, civilizing and culture-making nation of Iran. A nation with a prominent role in the global culture and civilization, by having presented thousands of scientists and artists, as well as innumerous scientific and cultural achievements throughout its honorable history.
A nation that, back 2500 years ago, by its great historical character, Cyrus, issued the order for freedom of thought and equality of human beings, as well as for annulling slavery, racial discrimination and exploitation; principles it has ever since adhered to.
A nation that managed an important part of the world for centuries, in brotherhood, justice and respect.
A nation that, in the current era, introduced the unique figure, Late Imam Khomeini, to the human society.
A leader who depicted the love and kindness of divine prophets to all human beings, and was the flag-bearer of freedom, justice and brotherhood for all nations. A great reformer who, from a divine-humane perspective, was the helper for all the oppressed and was the harbinger of peace, friendship and justice, heralding fundamental reforms to benefit all nations.
3- I have met many political, cultural and social figures, as well as people from all walks of life across the five continents of the world, talking to them about international issues. This letter can be interpreted as the standpoints of other nations and many contemporary experts and figures.
4- Your Excellency and I are, like other human beings, servants and creatures of The Only God, and have been created for an eternal life. God has not created us for enmity, hegemony and aggressiveness. People are all equal and in terms of possessing land, wealth, God-given opportunities and human rights, they’re alike. The true essence of human blossoms through monotheism, loving others and making endeavors toward the well-being and prosperity of others.
A human being, on his path to serve others, achieves proximity to God and eventually wins eternal salvation. In other words, a true human being and the actual winner of this world’s competitions and contests is one who spends his life in the service of other human beings’ well-being and welfare, and for doing away with oppression and establishing justice and friendship.
5- Enjoying the vote and trust of people and representing them is on the one hand a source of honor and on the other, causing an extremely heavy responsibility. If you have so far lived for yourself, basically you will need to henceforth live for the US people and the human society.
6- Having been elected the US president is a historic opportunity primarily for the elected person and secondly for the electorates and other nations. Although four years is a long period, but it ends quickly. The opportunity needs to be valued, and all its moments need to be used in the best way.
7- Those elected by nations and the rulers should never consider themselves being superior to people, or being their masters and dominant over people’s affairs. The rulers’ capacity is but to be humble toward the people, to serve them, and to follow up their demands.
All prophets, among them Prophet Jesus (Peace Be Upon him), were bearers of the same message and were in service of the people.
God, in the noble Quran, addresses Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and says “You are only a reminder. You are not over them a controller”.
The prophets came not to rule people and establish empires, but to unite human beings and instill sympathy, and to spread monotheism, freedom, justice and love across the planet and to endow everyone with them.
8- The laws ruling human societies have been codified by God. Those laws are unalterable. The people who, in their hearts, bear tenderness and love for human beings and strive on the path of serving people, have in fact filled their hearts with love for God and a beautiful fate awaits them, hence being honorable both in this world and in the hereafter.
9- Favoring the interests and satisfaction of the public and nations over the interest and satisfaction of an insatiable minority of tyrants of wealth and power, is a reasonable issue, bringing reputation to the rulers.
B. Some points on the status of the USA and Your Excellency’s stances during the election campaign:
Your Excellency is well informed of the US history and the behavior of its rulers toward other nations, particularly over the past half-century. Levels of dissatisfaction from US rulers are so that a free election at any part of the world will result in the victory of the US government’s opposition.
You are also supposed to know the US internal situation and the oppression exerted over the nation, better than any other person.
Your Excellency has explicitly proscribed the US policies and performances, as well as its governance structure and media system that shapes the public opinion. Your Excellency has announced that you want to change the status-quo to people’s benefit.
Requisite for realizing those vows is paying attention to some important issues, of which I point out a few:
1- Your Excellency has truthfully described the US political system and electoral structure as corrupt and anti-public. The US electoral system has for decades enslaved people’s votes to benefit a certain minority; i.e. a group that seemingly rules in the form of two parties, but in fact represents a minority, i.e. the tyrants of global wealth and power.
Changing the US electoral system and setting people’s will and interests free from that imposed slavery, will be considered a great job and a fundamental reform.
It is clear that only with an integrated plan and relying on people’s true will, the status quo can be reformed. I believe that the position of the president in the US entails ample power and potential for taking the initiative in that great job. I hope you will be the first president of the United States of America who establishes novel changes to achieve people’s actual will.
2- Unfortunately, consecutive US administrations have assumed arrogance toward others, seeking progress of the state in holding others back, pursuing possession and welfare of US people in others’ poverty, questing its honor and grandeur in humiliating others, and searching US security in insecurity for others.
If all the world governments view the international arena from the same angle, and act accordingly, what will the result be? It’s my belief that the US people cannot support such policies and performances, and cannot pursue humiliation, poverty and insecurity for others, and cannot seize others’ wealth.
Whenever the US nation has, beyond the blurred atmosphere of media, become cognizant of such policies and behaviors, it has slammed it and disavowed the perpetrators.
If we pursuing fundamental and sustainable reforms, we need to respect all nations and cultures, as well as their will and interests. We need to share the happiness of nations, as well as their sorrow. We need to seek equality and brotherhood among nations, and respect the nations’ rights, as well as to avoid arrogance and efforts toward domineering others.
3- Your Excellency has announced that the US treasury has produced around $23 Trillion of illegal notes (paper assets). This means that without labor, effort or providing goods and services and by having abused the internationality of dollar, the funds has been taken from world nations’ pocket. Regrettably, the big and modern robbery has been committed in the name of the US people, but in fact to the benefit of a certain group. This signifies that the US administration and governance owe other nations the exact amount. I don’t think the US people are satisfied with this greatest robbery in history.
It is expected that the looted wealth of nations be returned to them, or at least the inhumane and destructive trend be halted. This will be an instance of fundamental and structural reform.
4- Mr. President, Your Excellency has pinpointed the existence of 70 million poor and millions of jobless people and said that resolving US domestic problems is on top of your agenda. You have announced that the US defense power has shrunk. Your Excellency has noted the $6 Trillion costs of US war in the Middle East. You know that the official US annual military expenditure is $700 Billion.
Experts believe that defending US geographical borders and preserving its domestic security vis-à-vis modern threats should not cost more than $200 Billion annually.
The basic question now is who has given the US government the mission to establish security worldwide?
What outcome has meddling in other’s affairs and military deployments to other regions and imposing thousands of US military, security and intelligence bases across the globe had, except for insecurity, war, division, killing and displacement of nations? Have the measures brought about anything beyond hatred and animosity toward US leaders, notoriety for the US people and imposition of military expenditures?
If all governments want to show behavior similar to the US administration, which visible horizon of peace and security will lie ahead of the human society? Isn’t it better to stop warmongering and not to interfere militarily in other regions of the world, in order to create an atmosphere of international understanding and to end the arms race, war and killing of people?
By doing so, a considerable wealth of resources will be saved to develop US people’s welfare, and to shed poverty and unemployment. Isn’t that the best way to change the world nations’ attitude toward the US governing body?
Furthermore, you know that relying on arms and threatening others is translated into entering an endless and highly costly arms race, which has no fate but war, poverty and annihilation of nations.
Nowadays it is revealed to the general public that the claim to safeguard security and establish peace in other territories by relying on weapons and warmongering is a false one, where colonial goals are hidden under humanistic slogans.
How can the race in production and export of arms create peace and security?
War instigates war, and peace is never established by war.
Killing only cumulates hatred. Sustainable peace and security will only be established by changing attitudes, beliefs and behavior.
Sustainable security needs to be sought in kindness, respecting other’s rights and administering justice.
The best defensive power is people’s power and satisfaction, and this will not be achieved unless by administering justice and respecting human beings.
If Your Excellency takes the initiative to remove the deadly arms race and stop the military presence and intervention in other regions, the annual killing and displacement of millions of human beings will be prevented. If so, hundreds of billions of dollars of global military and security costs will be reduced, to be spent in the health, education and welfare of nations, as well as in reducing the social gap and other problems, and to uproot insecurity.
Hasn’t the time come for all of us to believe that the human society needs human thought, justice and brotherhood more than arms and military power? Arrogance is a devilish deed and the root cause of all problems in the human society. Hasn’t the time come to change arms to pens, and to replace arrogance, discrimination and hatred with love, equality and brotherhood?
5- The United Nations is the most prominent achievement of historical experiences, and is the shared human heritage and the result of man’s hope for building a better world. The formation of the UN is a very sublime idea for the fair participation of all nations in global governance and for establishing sustainable peace and security, as well as yielding welfare and excellence for all.
The UN was founded for collective wisdom to replace dictatorship and arrogance.
The free participation of nations in global governance is not a threat, but a valuable opportunity that all genuine reformists will welcome.
Unfortunately, the dominance of consecutive US administrations over the global body has obstructed its right performance. Time has come for the center for manifestation of collective- and- free will of nations to be set free from the destructive dominance.
Of course, the job requires history-making men and arrival at a major decision.
6- Those ill-wishing for the US people are set to withstand the implementation of US people’s will to implement fundamental reforms in structures, policies and behavior of the US ruling system.
They seek deception, in order to divert the public movement of the US nation toward genuine reform and realization of their rights.
Unfortunately, some are pursuing the spread of discriminatory, racist and profit-driven attitudes in human relations, as well as expansion of false boundaries and causing rifts among the people.
The Devils are, under false flags of religion, race, skin color and even geography, trying to widen the gap among people, and spread hatred, to create opportunities for themselves.
The human society is, in an evolutionary trend, moving toward the one society, and on its way, is pursuing removal of the various borders and gaps among people and nations.
Human beings originate from the same root and nature, possessing a divine soul, hence respectable. There’s no enmity and hostility among nations of any religion, thought and race. Resolving the problems of the human society and building a better world would need sympathy, condolence and helping each and every of the world people.
As great Saadi, the renowned Iranian poet put it:
The sons of Adam are limbs of each other,
Having been created of one essence.
When the calamity of time affects one limb
The other limbs cannot remain at rest.
We should all try to make a better future and to expand friendship, justice and freedom. All people need to feel responsible and enjoy the opportunity to participate in and lead that sacred deed. I’m positive no wise human being will condemn an effort to eradicate racial discrimination and discrimination in the US.
7- Terrorism is an anti-human tool in the hands of global powers in order to cause insecurity and rifts, as well as to impose their will and policies on nations and governments.
I regret to remind you that most of the known terrorist groups across the contemporary world have either been or are formed and reinforced by US security services, or have, halfway through, started to serve their goals.
Fundamental fight against terrorism would mean cutting the terrorists’ financial resources and the intelligence, financial and arms support of US security bodies, as well as those of US allied governments.
The public expectation from Your Excellency is to make the public, and particularly the nations oppressed by terrorism, happy and thankful by taking such a measure.
I long for a day when the idea of arrogance, which is the root cause of terrorism and a great number of human society’s problems is transformed into humane thought.
8- The developments and the current existence of America today is the result of immigration of a variety of nations to that land. The presence and constructive effort of the elite and scientists of different nations, including the million-plus population of my Iranian compatriots has had a major role in the development of the US. It is necessary that the spirit of the policies ruling the US, value respect toward the diversity of nations and races. In other words, the contemporary US belongs to all nations, including the natives of the land. No one may consider themselves the owner, and view others as guests or immigrants. Care needs to be taken toward the same persons responsible for the current problems in the US not to infiltrate and divert the nation.
It’s will not be an instance of over-demanding that Your Excellency invest into fighting the root cause of corruption and support the oppressed people, who are typically in the service of building the US.
C. And the final point:
1- Enjoying a country developed, powerful, rich and effective in international relations, is what any nation would long for, but this wouldn’t mean forming empires and interfering in others’ affairs, or boasting and exercising hegemony toward other nations.
I believe that the US land enjoys enough of natural resources and God-given wealth for making a prosperous, developed and sustainable life, so that no encroachment toward others’ resources will be needed. The US nation deserves enjoying all facilities and opportunities and having a sublime and stable life, via a constructive, fair and equal interaction with other nations.
You can rest assured that efforts to spread human behavior, to accept and respect the rights of other nations and to try to establish justice have always been admirable. Creating opportunities for constructive job for American youth, resolving people’s severe problems, making structural reforms and building America within the geography of the United States are welcome by the community of nations and ahead of them, the Iranian nation.
2- Women depict God’s beauty and are God’s most beautiful and valuable gift. Respecting women and dignifying them, is a sign of magnanimity.
The great men of history have paid the highest level of respect to women and recognized their God-given capabilities. Women’s role in the life and perfection of human society is special and in the best and highest form. Women’s management in domains of science, society, culture, etc. has been among the most precise and excellent.
We all understand the deep concept of unrivaled motherly love, the unique kindness of a sister and the irreplaceable position of a wife.
I hope women in all societies, including that of the US, while at utmost persistent esteem and respect, effectively and constructively participate and lead in building the ideal society.
It’s needless to remind of the glorious history of the great Iranian nation, which has seen numerous ups and downs. No trace is left on earth of the enemies and the malice and the vengeful ill-wishers toward the Iranian nation. However, the Iranian nation is alive and progressive, having successfully gone through and passed all minor and major historic events, as it will in the future. The Iranian nation possesses a bright future. I suffice to a point: please note that the image US media provide of the Iranian nation has never been and is not indicative of the facts regarding the great and honorable Iranian nation.
With the good people of US, you currently have a landmark opportunity to kick off fundamental reforms and strive on the path, to be the initiator of huge change and leave a good reputation behind.
I hope the lengthy letter, which was proportionate to the nature of a fundamental and constructive talk, hasn’t tired you.
I pray to God The Merciful for all nations and also for the people of US glory, prosperity, peace, freedom, justice and welfare and for Your Excellency, success in performing the heavy duty of reforming the structure of the US system and in responding to people’s demand.
And peace on the righteous servants of God
In service of the Iranian nation

Israel has decided it will take some disputed land in the ocean that has oil and gas, which Lebanon has asserted belongs to them.
The dispute is over an 800-square-kilometer triangular maritime area, which both countries are claiming they have the right to extract oil and gas from.

Read something that Sweden is preparing for nuclear war and also fallout from a nuclear plant in Norway. Who is eff-ing with Sweden? Russia apparently. It has been said that Russia wants Scandanavia and would start trying to annex Sweden, Norway, Finland. I will look into this further, but you should be aware of things going on pertaining to us directly.
You know recently another Russian sub was spotted off the Georgia coast, this was after the one that was off DC, went to Groton, CT, then back down to Cuba. When the war on us does begin, this is one prophetic scenario of how it will go down. The person who hypotheses this is the son of a former Naval Intelligence Officer, who is already undergoing federal harassment because he is trying to warn people, so I will withhold his name. Here is how war may happen in the US.
1. The Alaskan Front will see the Russians attacking the lower 48 from Alaska after our most northern state is quickly overwhelmed.
2. The Central American Front will witness a conglomeration of 33 Central and South American states (i.e. CELAC) which will combine military strike forces, backed by Russian military supplies, weapons, technology and strategy. These forces will push north through Central America and will attack America from the south.
3. The Southeastern Front will witness an amphibious invasion following the successes of the first two fronts in which major American military assets will be deployed away from the Southeast to defend against the scissors attack from America’s Northwest and the Southwest.
4. In a secondary and delayed attack, CALEXIT backed Chinese forces embedded in American ports (e.g. Long Beach), who have entered the country in cargo ships, will be unleashed to attack key military bases in California. At the same time, Chinese soldiers, who are embedded in the Sierra Madras will join forces with the Latin American forces as they sweep northward through Mexico and will dramatically burst through the border and then fan out to the north, west and east.
5. The fifth part of this attack, the Fifth Column, will be carried out by terrorists who have already gained entrance into the United States. Key assassinations and critical infrastructure sabotage will be carried out by these forces.
6. Russian forces will come out of the Arctic and sweep down through Canada and will attack the U.S. through Minnesota. This will allow the Russian led forces to cut the United States in half at the Mississippi River.
7. The lights will be turned out in the East, and will be particularly centered on the Eastern seaboard.
The 33 Central and South American nation organization known as CELAC are combining forces and will form the vanguard of an attacking Army moving north and entering the United States through Mexico.
Nicaragua’s quoted former Sandanista leader, Daniel Ortega, who reinstalled himself in 2007 as the Nicaraguan leader stated that “We are very grateful and very much appreciate the Russian people’s support of our country.” Ortega has accepted the arrival of two Russian strategic bombers and added that more will be on the way as Russia announced that Nicaragua has announced that it will accept routine Russian patrols in both its Caribbean and Pacific ports as well as participating in the joint training of military personnel. Russia and Nicaragua have moved in the direction of a strategic economic and military relationship. In October 2013, for example, Nicaragua and Russia signed a memorandum of international security cooperation
Argentinean President, Cristina Fernández is determined to develop close economic relations with Russia as the left-wing liberal Argentinean leader has invited Russia to invest in fuel projects in an obvious attack upon the Petrodollar. Fernandez also cut a deal with Putin which previously supported Russia’s grab of Crimea in exchange for Russia’s support of Argentina’s quest to annex the Falkland Islands
Equador, Venezuela, Bolivia
Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa praised Russia as a “great nation”, while visiting Moscow in October of 2013. Putin was indeed praise-worthy because he promised to invest $1.5 billion into new domestic energy projects in Ecuador. Correa also stated that his country was planning on buying Russian military equipment. Russia has signed several billion dollars of contracts with Venezuela and supplies Bolivia, among other countries from the region with military weapons. The military package includes attack aircraft and helicopters.
Brazilian Defense Minister Celso Amorim, stated that “More than buying military equipment, what we are seeking with Russia is a strategic partnership based on the joint development of technology.” Amorim’s statement is consistent with the fact that Brazil, South America’s most populous nation, has announced that it is planning to purchase short-to-medium-range surface-to-air Pantsir S1 missile batteries and Igla-S shoulder-held missiles from Russia. Previously, Brazil has purchased 12 Mi-35 attack helicopters. Russia and Brazil have also signed an agreement for Brazil to acquire 36 attack aircraft
El Salvador/Latin America
Leaders from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and Russia declared their intention to establish a means of continuous dialogue “to discuss and synchronize positions on international issues.” CELAC includes thirty-three countries in the Americas, but the United States and Canada are excluded. El Salvadorian President, Sanchez Ceren, has signed an agreement with Putin entitled “Federal Law On Ratification of the Agreement on the Foundations of Relations” which pledges economic and military cooperation.
CALEXIT Allowing Embedded Chinese Soldiers in West Coast Ports, Solar Energy Farms and Inland Ports-A Staging Area From Which the Chinese Will Attack the West.CALEXIT supporters include the following: (1) The Mexican Consulate; (2) La Raza; (3) Various Mexican drug cartels; (4) Former members of the Obama administration (eg Eric Holder); (5) George Soros personnel; (6) The Bank of China; (7) Chinese military controlling the Inland Ports and the solar energy farms through Chinese military front groups like Cinta; and, (8) The United Nations and others.
Since 1997, Chinese officials have bribed and bought off senior American government officials. In 2015, the Chinese control of the Long Beach Port was completed.China will control California’s food supply when CALEXIT becomes a reality. The Chinese can bring in any type of personnel, undetected, and this means Chinese military and eventually . Along with the paramilitary operations exposed by Judicial Watch and Marlon Brock, Paul Preston informed that the Chinese Military is buying up massive amounts of abandoned buildings from which they can bring in their military.
Oroville Dam. If the dam, as many predict, does not survive the coming spring runoff, the fertile agriculttural lands between the dam and Sacramento will be temporarily gone along with its farmers and ranchers. The Chinse courtesy of the Feinsteins will buy up this land for pennies on the dollar. People between Oroville and Sacramento need to realize that there is now a political motive to allow the dam to fail.
Phase Five: The Fifth Column
The Fifth Column, designed to sabotage critical infrastructure and carry out key assassinations of resistance figures in the media as well as uncooperative politicians, was mostly put into place last summer during the “immigration crisis” which was used as a cover to embed these forces inside of the U.S.
There is incontrovertible evidence that criminal drug cartels, like Los Zetas, have not only used MS-13 gangsters as hit men and child sex traffickers, but so has the Juarez Cartel and the Barrio Azteca to enforce their will, but Los Zetas have also conducted training in parts of Central and South America, and have even allowed MS-13 gangsters to lead in operations as when “El Comandante Kilo” operated in San Fernando on behalf of Los Zetas. This training consists of two parts, military training and assassination (i.e. future Red List applications). In plain corporate language, the Mexican drug cartels are outsourcing paramilitary activities such as assassinations and terrorism.
Paul Williams, a former FBI Consultant, wrote a book shortly after 9/11 and stated that reliable reports had reached United States officials that al Qaeda operatives were able to get at least two nuclear suitcase bombs into the United States. Williams went on to state that bin Laden had previously used his vast wealth, derived from control of Afghanistan’s poppy trade, to pay off high ranking MS-13 leaders. Williams further asserted that bin Laden paid as much as $50,ooo to smuggle sleeper agents into the United states. Williams is not alone in this belief as the author of Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America,Brigitte Gabriel, stated that there are terrorists coming through our southern border due to the cooperation and joint efforts of MS-13 and Hezbollah and they are intent on introducing a Hiroshima event on American soil! A very disturbing and recent report from the International Assessment and Strategy Center stated that MS-13 is moving away from handguns to the use of AK-47’s, along with grenades, rocket propelled grenade launchers, and light anti-tank weapons! The same think tank also reported that the MS-13 gang recently acquired multiple shoulder-fired SA-7 anti-aircraft missile launchers obtained from an open arms market in El Salvador from left over former civil war stockpiles. MS-13 is equipping its forces with these weapons as they can easily knockout helicopters and airplanes from the skies and these weapons can be obtained for a mere $15,000. This is chump change for a gang associated with the drug cartels. The same report went on to state that MS-13 has begun to smuggle drugs, weapons and human beings for the Zetas. MS-13 members are being trained at Zetas camps outside San Salvador and the training includes high level military training. Think TET offensive from the Viet Nam War. MS-13 is well-armed enough to take over cities by knocking out the headquarters of local police forces in a simultaneous series of attacks in which WMD’s are introduced on American soil.
Back in 2010, an internal memo was leaked from the Tucson Police Department which stated that Islamic terrorist groups are commencing operations in Mexico and forming alarming ties with the country’s brutal drug cartels. In turn, the drug cartels are now associated with Hezbollah. The memo also references a large weapons stockpile in Mexico as evidenced by the 2010 Tijuana arrest of Hezbollah militant Jameel Nasr, who was given the job of establishing a well-armed Hezbollah network in Mexico and South America. Nasr was apparently bringing this terror network north when he was captured. The memo also discussed the April 2009 arrest of Jamal Yousef in New York, which exposed a huge cache of assault rifles, hand grenades, explosives and anti-tank munitions. According to the report, the weapons were stored in Mexico, but only after being smuggled from Iraq by members of Hezbollah
Attack from the Northern Tundra
For how many years have it has been reported that there was a Russian build up at the North Pole. Not only are there vast amounts on mineral wealth, occupying the North Pole is equivalent to playing King of the Hill. As Russia can attack in any direction. The Naval War College practiced this scenario and found there is no defense against this incursion.
Phase Seven: Turning Out the Lights on the Northeast
In October/November of 2013, some expressed extreme outrage at the fact that President Obama was allowing our enemies, the Communist Chinese and the Russians, who had both threatened to nuke the U.S. several times over Syria, to participate in the GRID EX II drills in November of 2013. By doing so, we handed off the keys to our power grid to our enemies.
It has been widely reported that the Russians are deploying and disseminating to its allies (e.g. North Korea), EMP weapons.
It is the belief of many military strategists that the Chinese and Russians want to capture the Eastern seaboard intact. Taking down the grid would accomplish this goal. Further, in 2013, 360,000 foreign troops trained for urban warfare in the Northeast.
why do you think the UWEX drills are still ongoing? And what are the UWEX drills? They are drills in Texas in which a multinational occupying force is fighting a guerrilla war against American military units gone rogue. Welcome to America.

WHEN'S HE COMING BACK?
There have been propechies of when Jesus will be back. There is something that is called the Day of Appearance, it is prophecied to occur in 9/2034. People will see him, it will be a warning, but he will not be back walk on the earth at that time. The day when you will know he is back is prophecied to be 10/31/1939.
In 1939 there is a harmonic convergence on that same day, astrologically.
Interestingly enough, the Illuminati [the ones who are running things now, with the Shadow Govt./Deep State] was formed in 1776, the year of the first American Revolution.
And here is a prophecy that someone had.

RUSSIA CAN USE IRANIAN BASES
Russia can use Iranian bases to launch strikes against Isis in Syria. It does however set a precedent. IF they want to later use those bases for strikes against anything else, like US foreign interests, they might be able to do so. EZEKIEL Chapter 38 - when that war does begin the US will be fighting Russia. The US has also placed new sanctions in Iran, which does not endear them to us.
Then there is also the issue of US deployed missile systems elsewhere over there.
Viktor Poznikhir, the deputy head of operations of the Russian general staff, said at a disarmament conference in Geneva.The US has also deployed its THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile system in South Korea, in an alleged bid to shoot down North Korea’s short, medium and intermediate range ballistic missiles. “The presence of the global ABM system lowers the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons, because it gives the US the illusion of impunity for using strategic offensive weapons from under the protection of the ABM ‘umbrella,’” Poznikhir said.
“The ABM shield is a symbol of the build-up of rocket forces in the world and a trigger for a new arms race,” he added. The Russian commander warned that the continued deployment of the ABM systems “narrows down the opportunity for nuclear reduction dialogue.”
REMARKS: Russia does not want a new arms race. They would like peace and sovereignty over their own countries. The US has forces on the Ukranian border.

ARABS OPPOSE TRUMP IDEA OF MOVING EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM
The draft was approved by Arab foreign ministers at an eve-of-summit meeting in the Jordan. The draft, which was drawn up by the Palestinian delegation, was approved by Arab foreign ministers at an eve-of-summit meeting in the Jordanian Dead Sea resort of Sweimeh. Arab League member states "reaffirm their commitment to the two-state solution and to the right of the State of Palestine to restore its sovereignty over the territories occupied in 1967, including east Jerusalem," the draft says. It calls on "all countries to respect UN Security Council resolutions that reject Israel's annexation of occupied east Jerusalem" and "not to move their embassies" from Tel Aviv to the Holy City.
Since taking office in January, Trump has indicated he is willing to break with decades of US policy by moving the embassy and being open to a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict if both sides agree it.
REMARKS: The logical worldly solution to the problem between Palestine and Israel is to create a two state solution. There is just one problem, God forbid that, and he forbid it a lonnng time ago.
One Nation Under One King Ezekiel 37:15-37:28
15The word of the Lord came to me: 16“Son of man, take a stick of wood and write on it, ‘Belonging to Judah and the Israelites associated with him.’ Then take another stick of wood, and write on it, ‘Belonging to Joseph (that is, to Ephraim) and all the Israelites associated with him.’ 17Join them together into one stick so that they will become one in your hand.
18“When your people ask you, ‘Won’t you tell us what you mean by this?’ 19say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to take the stick of Joseph—which is in Ephraim’s hand—and of the Israelite tribes associated with him, and join it to Judah’s stick. I will make them into a single stick of wood, and they will become one in my hand.’ 20Hold before their eyes the sticks you have written on 21and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. 22I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.
[THERE WILL NEVER AGAIN BE TWO NATIONS OR BE DIVIDED INTO TWO KINGDOMS - there is no ambiguity in this, and by the way the tribes of Judah originally were the people some of whom today are Muslims. The Afghan Taliban originally came from the Tribe of Bani Isarel, which was in the lands of the tribe of Judah].
23They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.
24My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my decrees. 25They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your ancestors lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever. 26I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28Then the nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.’ ”
Further Remarks: Regardless of whether you think the current day Israelis or Palestinians deserve the have the land in question, God is quite clear, he does not want TWO nations, TWO states, he wants only one. When two states are formed (if the US is involved in creating that, there will be retribution and punishment to the US, because God only wants one state).
God wants a one world order with HIM at the head of it, but mankind cannot create one. Man will be deceived, and the anti-Christ will be sitting in the Temple in Jerusalem, but Jesus will oust him after he gets back.

A MUSLIM NATO / and UNITED NATIONS NUCLEAR WEAPONS DISARMENT VOTE
Pakistan’s former army chief, Raheel Sharif, is set to become the first commander of a new Saudi-led counterterrorism coalition of mostly Sunni Islamic states, a move frustrating neighboring Shi'ite Iran in addition to prevailing domestic opposition and criticism. Sharif is likely to travel to Saudi Arabia as early as next month to take charge of what commentators increasingly refer to as the “Muslim NATO”, according to Pakistani officials and close aides.
They said that “putting in place the military structure” of the proposed 39-nation Islamic Military Alliance to Fight Terrorism (IMAFT), which will be headquartered in Riyadh, is among Sharif’s initial tasks.
REMARKS: Iran is in opposition to this alliance. I did not agree with the Operation Zarb E Azab, which Pakistan launched in Waziristan and the Frontier Provinces starting quite awhile back against the Pakistani Taliban, who at that time were NOT allied with Isis. They were not bothering anyone in Pakistan, they were in their provinces living their lives. The US pushed the drone issue, trying to hunt down people they wanted to execute, and Pakistan had to rise up and say, look we will do this ourselves, just get out of our lands. The Pakistani Taliban splintered off into several groups, some of them joined with Isis. This was as a result of Zarb e Azab, which the retired Army Chief supports. IF he leads a coalition forming a NATO like alliance with other Arab states, we can expect wars all over the Middle East, Isis continuing to garner support as smaller groups have to join them. If there is a full blown Sunni vs Shiite war, what side will the US stand on? Russia will ally with Iran.
Pakistan joined a US led boycott of a law to ban nuclear weapons.
More than 100 countries on Monday launched the first UN talks aimed at achieving a legally binding ban on nuclear weapons, as Washington led an international boycott of a process it deems unrealistic. India, Pakistan and China joined the boycott. Haley spoke in a group of some 20 ambassadors from US allies which are boycotting the negotiations, including Britain, France, South Korea, Turkey and a number of countries from eastern Europe.
The ambassadors of Russia and China were notably absent, but both major nuclear powers are also sitting out the General Assembly talks. Haley estimated that “almost 40 countries” were not participating. The push for a ban was announced in October by 123 UN members who say the threat of atomic disaster is growing thanks to tensions fanned by North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and an unpredictable new administration in Washington.
Britain, France, Israel, Russia and the United States all voted no, while China, India and Pakistan abstained. (they want nuclear weapons).
Those who wanted the ban were: Austria, Ireland, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa and Sweden, supported by hundreds of nonprofit organizations.
REMARKS: Either agree unilaterally that ALL countries may have them, or agree that NO countries may have them. That would be fair. The countries that want nuclear weapons do not want to allow certain other countries to have them.

CONNECTICUT ARMED DRONES WILL PATROL THE SKIES
Now, law enforcement is flipping that on its head with a bipartisan proposal to permit police to equip unmanned aircraft with deadly weapons.
The legislature's judiciary committee passed a bill this week that would make Connecticut the first state in the nation to allow the use of weaponized drones by law enforcement. North Dakota legalized police use of armed drones in 2015, but the law limits those weapons to less lethal technologies, such as rubber bullets and tear gas. The Connecticut measure contains no such restrictions
REMARKS: Bad policy. How long till they start assassinating people on the political hit lists?
Bad, bad, bad. And NO, this is NOT an April Fool's Day joke. This is real.

SYRIA 7 YEARS IN
As the Syrian conflict enters its seventh year, more than 465,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, more than a million injured and over 12 million Syrians - half the country's prewar population - have been displaced from their homes.
700,000 trapped in besieged areas.
4.9 Million living in hard to reach areas.
6.3 Million internally displaced.
In October 2015, the US scrapped its controversial programme to train Syrian rebels, after it was revealed that it had spent $500m but only trained 60 fighters.
Half the refugees 2.4 million are children
306,000 have been born as refugees
2 million children are without access to aid
200,000 children are living in besieged areas.
Remarks: No easy answers, but given the number of people effected, especially children, the nations involved in the conflict need to come to a consensus of peace. 306,000 children born as refugees? Half the country's population displaced from their homes. How is any of this acceptable?

NORTH KOREA, YEMEN, SAUDI ARABIA
North Korea is ready to retaliate any US or US, China led strike.
Trump says that North Korea is looking for trouble, and if China wants to help that would be great, but if not the US is prepared to go it alone.
The President of Yemen calls on citizens to join against the Houthi movement.
A Shia woman is on trial in Saudi Arabia for participating in a protest. They are not allowed to protest in Saudi.
"Okaz said prosecutors accused the woman during a hearing in Riyadh on Monday of offences including "destabilizing security, negatively affecting the social fabric, wreaking havoc, (and) inciting sectarian sedition."
Remark: What will her fate be? Beatings, imprisonment, and/or death. So you're glad you don't live there, well the freedoms you still have will be taken away if the new-world-order gets their way. Trump is the only hope you have to stop them.

This weekend is the anniversary of the creation of North Korea and the birth of it's first leader, Kim Il-sung. Many believe since it is such a festive occasion, North Korea might want to show how far it has come militarily and launch a TEST bomb, to show it can compete with any adversary.
"The US-based monitoring group 38 North said on Thursday that the satellite images from the North’s mountainous Punggye-ri site showed it was “primed and ready” for what would be the country’s sixth nuclear test since 2006."
“Commercial satellite imagery of North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site from April 12 shows continued activity around the North Portal, new activity in the main administrative area, and a few personnel around the site’s Command Center,” 38 North said on its website."
South Korean officials were sceptical that a nuclear test was imminent this time. “There has been no unusual activity so far,” Roh Jae-chun, a spokesman for the country’s joint chiefs of staff, told reporters, according to Yonhap news agency.
In a phone conversation with Trump on Wednesday, China’s president, Xi Jinping, repeated calls for a peaceful resolution to the nuclear issue.
“China remains committed to the goal of denuclearising the (Korean) peninsula, safeguarding peace and stability on the peninsula, and advocates resolving problems through peaceful means,” the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV quoted Xi as saying.
Afghanistan? Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf criticized the MOAB strike in Nangahar, and said it was the US's fault that the problem exists in the first place. Gilbudin Hekmatyar said he will be back in the public, and wants a political leadership role/position regardless if the current administration recognizes him. Former President Karzai even offered to help with the current situation. From the field there are reports that one man and his son were killed with the MOAB. The blast cause earth tremors far away from the site. Since Isis's main base is in Syria and Iraq, we should not be blasting Afghanistan, in my opinion.

NORTH KOREA - breaking news
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is preparing for nuclear war, according to a report released just moments ago at Pravda.ru.
[ru means Romania]
As the U.S. Naval fleet moves rapidly towards the Korean Peninsula and Kim Jong Un prepares to test a nuclear device promising a “day of the sun” in response to perceived U.S. aggression, some 600,000 residents of the North Korean Capital have been ordered to leave the city immediately.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ordered 25 percent of Pyongyang residents to leave the city immediately.
In accordance with the order, 600,000 people should be urgently evacuated. Experts note that the evacuation will most likely be conducted due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the United States of America.
Reportedly, Pyongyang’s bomb shelters will not be able to accommodate the entire population of the North Korean capital. Therefore, 600,000 people – mostly individuals with criminal records – will have to leave Pyongyang to let others use bomb shelters.
It was also said that one modified Ohio type rocket carrier carrying 154 Tomahawk type missiles on board joined the US Navy deployed near the coast of the Korean Peninsula. The missile carrier is expected to arrive at the port of registration on April 18.
China has massed 150,00 troops on the North Korean border, reportedly in anticipation of a wave of refugees in the event of hostilities. On Wednesday morning China put its troops, including armored and mechanized brigades, on high alert and has threatened to take direct military action on North Korean nuclear facilities.
On Tuesday the United States Navy deployed submarine hunting aircraft off the coast of California, with some reports speculating that a North Korean submarine had been spotted.
It has to be translated, but this is the original article.

NORTH KOREA THEY ARE NOT PLANNING ON DOING ANYTHING THIS WEEKEND
Okay they are planning drills to simulate striking a missile base, which would be a reaction to any PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE ANY OTHER COUNTRY USES ON THEM. That is what seems to be going on. So people should settle down and not accuse them of getting ready to do anything. They are practicing IF SOMEONE STRIKES THEM FIRST.
Foreign Journalists have been invited.
The reporters were told they could not take lighters, cell phones or laptops, and must be ready by 6:20 AM.
This is on his list of scheduled activities.

NORTH KOREA - US WANTS TO DO A PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE WITH REAL WEAPONS ON NORTH KOREA IF NORTH KOREA TESTS THEIR OWN WEAPONS.
Well, since Kim Jung Un has invited journalists to watch his defensive drills, I guess we will be assassinating international journalists with a pre-emptive strike of real weapons as we start World War III. DOES ANYONE IN WASHINGTON UNDERSTAND THAT LAUNCHING REAL WEAPONS ON A NATION IS A DECLARATION OF WAR, AND A WAR WITH NORTH KOREA WILL BE A NUCEAR WAR?
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

HOW BAD WOULD IT BE IF NORTH KOREA RETALIATED ON SOUTH KOREA?
South Korea’s Defense Ministry concluded Kim’s regime aims to “dump 31 tons of biological and chemical weapons into the South on Day 1 of war by using its long-range artillery and airplanes,” as cited by Dong-A Ilbo Feb. 27.
The newspaper added: “The number of expected fatalities due to such an attack will hit up to 2.8 million people. Even so, the South is significantly lacking air-raid shelters that are equipped for biological and chemical attacks.”
The above writer, Robert Park, is a founding member of the nonpartisan Worldwide Coalition to Stop Genocide in North Korea, minister, musician, and former prisoner of conscience.
REMARKS: 2.8 MILLION SOUTH KOREANS DIE ON DAY ONE. What do you think will happen when a nuclear war continues?

NORTH KOREA FRIDAY 4.14.17
N.K. says it will conduct nuke test when leader decides: report
SEOUL, April 14 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's vice foreign minister said that the country will conduct another nuclear test at any time upon the leadership's decision, a news report said Friday.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol said that the situation on the Korean Peninsula was in a "vicious cycle," adding that Pyongyang won't tolerate a U.S. pre-emptive strike.
"If the U.S. comes with reckless military maneuvers then we will confront it with a pre-emptive strike" Han was quoted as saying by the AP. [Associated Press] "We've got a powerful nuclear deterrent already in our hands, and we certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a U.S. pre-emptive strike," he said.
Han said that Trump's "aggressive" tweets were "making trouble," according to the report.
North Korea conducted two nuclear tests last year alone following those in 2006, 2009 and 2013. It has test-fired numerous ballistic missiles, including intermediate-range Musudan missiles. North Korea has claimed that its development of nuclear weapons is a deterrent against what it calls Washington's hostile policy toward it.
South Korea strongly warned that a major provocation by the North would invite "unbearably" strong punitive measures.
"If the North goes ahead with provocations such as a nuclear test or ICBM launch, we warn again that its regime will surely face unbearably strong punitive measures," the foreign ministry in Seoul said in a statement.
"The government is having necessary consultations with relevant countries including the talks held with China's nuclear envoy Wu Dawei this week to discuss stern reactions to the North's additional strategic provocations," it added.
North Korea does not want a war with the US. Japan and Canada are sending war ships to the area and plan to conduct joint military exercises. This is provocation to North Korea. If North Korea sent ships off our shores to conduct military exercises would we not consider that provocation and threatening? We do not have access to view the North Korean missile/nuclear program, there are no inspections of their work or facilities because they have their own sovereign state/republic. It is true one of the things North Korea will do in their SIMULATION test is what if they were to attack a missile base. Japan in response is seeking to remove 60,000 of it's citizens from South Korea to protect them.
What if ALL countries stopped sending warships and subamarines all over the world to bother other countries, and they just protected their own borders? No more wars, unless like in the 1980's Russia decided to try to annex Afghanistan, that is a direct war. All these other things are rude, inappropriate and provocative. Make good trade deals, leave other nations live their lives their ways in their own lands. That is the solution for peace. Now why can't people/countries do that?

Russian jets Off Alaska, escorted away from Alaska.
The US military has intercepted a pair of Russian bombers flying off the coast of Alaska, a Pentagon official says amid escalating tension between Moscow and Washington over a recent US strike on Syria.
Pentagon spokesman Commander Gary Ross made the announcement on Tuesday, saying that two US Air Force F-22 Raptor aircraft had intercepted the Russian TU-95 Bear bombers within 160 kilometers of Alaska's Kodiak Island a day earlier.
The American stealth fighters escorted the Russian long-range bombers for 12 minutes before they reversed course and headed back to their base in eastern Russia, according to the official.
Ross said the intercept was "safe and professional," and there was no violation of US airspace and any international norms.
The Pentagon spokesman noted that Russia’s TU-95s are capable of carrying nuclear weapons, but there was no indication that the planes were armed.
