McCain Blasts Trump Policies In Munich, Germany Speech
"Arizona Sen. John McCain delivered a series of blows to President Donald Trump Friday during a speech in Germany, and at one point he compared today's political atmosphere to the Nazi years of the 1930s and 1940s.
"In the four decades I have attended this conference, I cannot recall a year where its purpose was more necessary or more important," said McCain, who never mentioned Trump by name during his speech at the Munich Security Conference but referenced his policies several times.
"This panel is going to ask us to consider whether the West will survive. In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism. Not this year. If ever there was a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now."
First, I have absolutely no respect for American politicians regardless of party who use foreign platforms to attack our country and government officials particularly the President. Barack Obama was especially guilty of that during his presidency.
While McCain does not mention President Trump by name, it is obvious he was the object of McCain's scorn. Even though I commend McCain for his service to our nation (I was in Vietnam at the same time he was shot down, October 26, 1967; check out this link/article about John McCain's aviation history - he lied about how he was shot down and his fellow pilots questioned whether he had the right stuff to be a combat pilot), his comparison of President Trump and his policies to those of Adolph Hitler amounts to low-life character assassination, particularly since the German people were his audience.
It is no secret that there is bad blood between President Trump and Senator McCain over the President's comment about McCain not being a hero. However, when you read the account of his less than illustrious aviation career (he was not a fighter pilot, but a bomber pilot) and how he did not follow proper training procedures for bailing out of a stricken aircraft, which caused his injuries not torture by the North Vietnamese, perhaps Trump's assessment of McCain is not exactly incorrect (this is not to diminish the suffering he received at the hands of his captors, but he admits in his book, Faith of My Fathers, that he was not treated as badly as other prisoners).
McCain's dislike of President Trump does not give him an excuse to bad-mouth a sitting United States president during a visit to a foreign nation, particularly one with a history such as Germany. McCain's speech was laced with Anti-Americanism and anti-national sovereignty (putting America first) as well as Trump's immigration policy to keep terrorists out of our country, which McCain equated as Islamophobia - a mistake blind gullible politicians are repeatedly making for Islam has one goal - to turn the West into a Islamic caliphate. When McCain warns that it is the likes of a President Trump and his supporters that are a danger to the West, he shows his willful ignorance of the real issue, that is, extreme fundamental Islam is the greatest threat to the West not President Donald Trump and the 60 million Americans that voted for him.
As I told McCain today in an email, he needs to retire for he is part of the problem not the solution. He has been in government way too long and his establishment policies are what the 2016 election was against, but he still doesn't get it.
Emergency Hearing Sought To Stop NSA Spying On President Trump
"Attorney Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, is asking a federal court to hold an emergency hearing on the National Security Agency, alleging “likely” CIA “spying” on President Donald Trump.
In an emergency supplement filed Wednesday with the U.S. District Court in Washington, he said the NSA and “likely the Central Intelligence Agency are continuing to violate the [Fourth] Amendment to the Constitution and related statutes.”
Klayman charged the agencies spied on President Trump, the White House, his former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn and others in his administration.
He is requesting an emergency status conference to determine how to proceed".
The dishonest media has been attacking President Trump relentlessly over his claim the Intel agencies are leaking classified information to the public domain yet according to Judicial Watch that is usually right in their many briefs filed with the federal courts, is asking them for an emergency hearing to determine if the NSA/CIA spied on President Trump and his administration.
If true, this is a serious violation of the President's Constitutional Rights. I watched a Fox News interview with a CIA Analyst and army reservist, Lt. Colonel Tony Shafer who said he believes former DNI James Clapper, former CIA Director, John Brennan and FBI Director James Comey all more than likely were in conclusion to spy on President Trump and General Flynn involving the alleged Russian involvement with the Trump administration.
He also said President Trump needs to get rid of the top senior management and Obama holdovers that oppose him in all layers of the intelligence agencies. Every president is entitled to his own people in all levels of government. It should not be difficult to find who is leaking the President's telephone calls to the media for a only a small number of people have access to his calls.
As the president remarked in his press conference today, the leakers have committed a criminal act and should go to jail (emphasis mine).
I watched the press conference and there was no doubt who was in charge - President Trump. He rightly blistered the dishonest media, CNN, the New York Slime and the Washington Compost for their dishonest hateful reporting. I watch CNN and MSNBC just to see how they are reporting the news about President Trump. The President is absolutely correct, it is all one-sided against him. There is not a smidgen of positive news on either CNN or MSNBC about the President.
After the press conference I watched President Trump meet with Coal Miners and sign a directive to end burdensome regulations on the coal industry. They were ecstatic that President Trump kept his campaign promise to save the Coal Mining Industry. The Senators and Congressmen of the Coal Mining states were in attendance to witness the celebratory occasion. 70,000 coal miners jobs were saved today and as well as a $50M industry. Remember Hillary Clinton promised to shut down the Coal Industry if she became president.
President Trump is keeping his campaign promises to the American people in spite of stiff resistance from the "donkey party". He has been working without a full cabinet due to the delay tactics of old Chuck Schumer and other liberal democrats and yet has accomplished more in a brief time that all other president's before him. The man is a work-a-holic unlike his predecessor who spent most of his time on the golf course or campaigning.
Think what he can do when he finally gets his full cabinet. The Senate needs to confirm Judge Gorsuch ASAP for he is highly qualified to take Justice Scalia's seat on the Supreme Court.
