What Trump Just Said About NATO Has Europe Freaking Out! We LOVE It!

NATO members need to look over their massive social welfare programs, and how much they’re spending on millions of Muslim refugees

Published

on

World leaders are already reacting to Trump’s foreign policy pronouncements, and his “America First” attitude.

Trump was interviewed by the New York Times on Wednesday. The Republican nominee reiterated his stance that NATO allies have to fulfill their monetary obligations, and that the United States wasn’t going to pick up the tab any longer.

NATO’s goal for member nations is that each spend 2% of their GDP on defense. Proving Trump’s assertion that NATO members are not fulfilling their obligations, the Wall Street Journal reported last November that only 5 of 28 member nations are meeting that goal. Those nations are the U.S., Great Britain, Greece, Estonia and Poland.

The three Balkan states many worry Russia could move aggressively against are Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Only Estonia is meeting NATO’s 2% defense spending goal.

Upon hearing Trump’s remarks that he would decide whether to send military aid based on member nations meeting the goal, the president of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, immediately took to Twitter to explain that his country had met NATO’s goal.

Michael McFaul is a former U.S. ambassador to Russia. He’s obviously not big Trump, or fiscal responsibility. He Tweeted this after hearing what Trump told the NY Times.

The Wall Street Journal reported that:

The U.S. accounts for roughly 75% of the military spending by all NATO members. U.S. leaders for years have urged European countries to do more, saying they need to take more responsibility for their own defense.”

Trump is merely reiterating what other American leaders have been pushing for. He believes that with our $19 trillion debt, our allies need to pull their own weight so we can put our own fiscal house back in order.

Of course, Hillary Clinton and the left will have none of that. They’re fine with letting America fall further and further into debt, and placing the burden onto taxpayers.

Clinton’s senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan responded to Trump’s remarks with the statement, “Republicans, Democrats and independents who help build NATO into the most successful military alliance in history would all come to the same conclusion: Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit and fundamentally ill-prepared to be our commander in chief.”

Of course, this is pure rubbish. What’s going to happen is, member states of NATO will adjust their spending to meet the 2% goal if Trump says that it is a requirement for America to come to their aid if attacked.

Europe nations, and NATO member states need to realize that America can’t be their personal piggy bank forever. NATO member nations need to look over their massive social welfare programs, and how much they’re spending on the millions of Muslim refugees they’ve let in, and decide where to cut so they can meet their defense responsibilities.

All Trump is saying to NATO members is, “Pay your fair share. American taxpayers shouldn’t have to pick up the slack for your inability to manage your fiscal house.”

My bet, if Trump is elected president, all NATO members will meet the 2% goal. That’s why Trump brought it up in the first place. He’s negotiating a deal, without even being at the table yet. Pretty smart of Trump. And good for America, too.

Melania Handed Note About Barron During Meeting, Shocked When She Reads It!

SHE NEEDS SUPPORT NOW!

Published

on

The president and First Lady have been traveling abroad for White House business since Friday, on a week-long tour touching down in several countries. Melania Trump is far away from home and missing their 11-year-old son who she’s extremely close to and involved with in his everyday activities as a very hands-on mom. Adjustment to life as the First Family has come with more challenges than most, given the vicious nature of those who don’t like Donald Trump.

While on their short 24-hour stop in Israel, Melania stopped by a children’s hospital with the Prime Minister’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, to visit children facing insurmountable problems. As she showered them with genuine love and attention, she undoubtedly thought about her own boy who was back at home and being watched over by people she and the president trust. Later, when she was meeting with the Israel’s First Lady Nechama Rivlin, she was handed a note about Barron in a gift that left her absolutely stunned.

It’s no secret that Melania’s first and most important priority his her young son Barron. He’s who she stayed in New York for during the stressful first months of Donald Trump’s presidency. He’s also the one she’s fiercely protected against an adversary she never thought he would be relentlessly attacked by — grown adults of a different political party than his father’s.

Being a person in the public eye can be lonely despite the number of people who know your name and give you attention. The relentless ridicule and comments made about this child is not something any kid should ever have to face, especially since he didn’t choose to be the First Son of the United States. Nechama understands this struggle all too well as she too has faced similar scrutiny in her own country, as part of what comes with the territory of being the wife of a world leader.

While Nechama and Melania spent some time together, the gracious First Lady of Israel leaned in and handed Melani a gift. It wasn’t for the Melania, rather Nechama decided to do something special for Barron and within the gift of the book was a much deeper meaning that was especially touching for our First Lady.

Independent Journal Review reports:

“The first lady got copies in three different languages, but it’s the content of the book that matters.”

“According to descriptions, the book illustrates a mother and son, alone on a walk. Her boy is named Ben. The son is worried that he is alone in the world because he is “special,” but his mother reassures him with a hug.”

If anyone is in need of some reassurance, it’s Barron who has been the brunt of undeserved torment by adults in this country who simply hate who he was born to. Nobody knows how to comfort him the way his mother does. This incredible story written about two other people well before the Trumps moved to the White House, seems to perfectly represent this mother and son relationship now and the struggles young Barron is facing today.

The Israeli First Lady’s thoughtful gift was as much of a pleasure for her to give Melania as it was for our First Lady to receive it. Nechama could see that Melania was visibly “moved” by what the note said in the book and “immediately understood.” “It was important for me to give the Barron, who remained at home and is only 11 years old, a souvenir from his parents’ visit to Israel,” Nechama wrote on Facebook.

The Israeli First Lady also saw something in Melania that countless Americans fail to see, describing her as “a charming woman inside and out, sensitive and special, in her Facebook post. Melania exudes these incredibly compassionate qualities which are prevalent in her time spent with sick children in hospitals around the world and her warm approach to world leaders. As she walked with Nechama, who is ill herself and hooked up to a breathing machine, you can see the genuine love and concern for this woman in Melania’s face, which was captured in a photo from the visit.

What the world needs now is compassion for people which both Nechama and Melania show on the daily basis, both in their homes and abroad. It’s incredibly touching that with any number of gift options that this world leader could have given America’s First Lady, she thought to give her something meaningful for her persecuted kid who doesn’t deserve the torment he endures.

BREAKING: MAJOR LIBERAL NEWS Outlet Just RAIDED!!

THEY ARE GOING DOWN! TRUMP GOT ‘EM!

Published

on

Now, this is an interesting twist of events.

This morning over two dozen investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac and from we have been able to uncover the IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac back in December 2017. Although the reports are still a bit sticky the IRS agents were observed photographing servers in the offices of Newsweek Magazine but they did not go as far as to download any files at the offices located at 7 Hanover Square. What they appeared to be doing was photographing the serial numbers on the machines instead of finding out what the contents actually are.

Interestingly enough IBT has previously been linked to a Christian church which was founded by the Korean-American evangelist David Jang and Olivet University. That’s the same university located in California that Jang’s followers founded, The IRS had not responded to a call by press time and the Manhattan DA has declined to comment. So we will see where this all leads to in the coming weeks.

Even the far left Salon.com agrees:

Newsweek rehashes bogus scenario in which Hillary Clinton could still win the 2016 election
A story with no value and no newsworthiness is causing people to wonder what Newsweek was thinking

There exists, in some circles, a fantasy in which President Donald Trump is impeached, and Hillary Clinton is somehow named president. Those circles tend to be Republican ones, and one can argue they exist as some sort of nightmare fuel for conservatives itching for a reason to back Trump in his prolonged fight against special counsel Robert Mueller.

But a day after the president and his party tried to publicly shame the press with the term “fake news,” Newsweek gave us a story that makes absolutely no sense — one in which Trump was impeached, Vice President Mike Pence was impeached and Paul Ryan somehow gifted the presidency to Clinton instead.

That fantasy was borne out of a blog post in October penned by Harvard Law professor and activist Lawrence Lessig, who wrote that Mueller’s investigation would eventually lead to Trump’s impeachment. While that is improbable, it’s not completely impossible.

But Lessig took his theory a step farther, saying that, in some world, the presidential chain of succession would reach Paul Ryan, who would literally hand the most powerful office in the nation from himself to Clinton — a member of the opposite party and his party’s enemy number one.

Soak in this magical fairytale:

[If collusion is proven] the first step is obvious. Trump should resign or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached.

The second step should be obvious as well: Pence should resign or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached. He benefited from the criminal (and treasonous) conspiracy just as much as Trump. He shouldn’t benefit even more by becoming the residual President.

Under the law as it is, this leaves Paul Ryan as President. And the hard moral question that Ryan would then face is whether he should remain as President. By hypothesis, we’re assuming the office was effectively stolen from the legitimate winner by a criminal and treasonous act of the (previous) leader of Ryan’s own party. Ryan’s being President is just the fruit of that poisonous tree. So should he just ignore that? Or should he acknowledge the wrong, and act to make it right?

President Ryan would have the right to nominate a Vice-President. That right is specified in the 25th Amendment. That nominee then becomes Vice-President once confirmed by a majority of both houses. That’s how Gerald Ford became Vice President. And that’s how he eventually became President without ever running for that office.

If Ryan became President because the Trump/Pence campaign committed treason, who should he nominate as his Vice President? The answer seems unavoidable: He should nominate the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become the president.

The theory is, to put it mildly, bonkers. No one should give it more than one second of thought.

But that’s exactly what Newsweek did on Thursday, revisiting Lessig’s old blog post to advance it with one simple question: Does he still believe that? That question is the only reason the Newsweek article exists. It was answered with a sure, why the hell not? Per Newsweek:

On Wednesday, Lessig told Newsweek this scenario was still a possibility.

“This is one way it could happen,” Lessig said. “But that’s very different from saying I think it will happen, or should happen, or [that] the evidence is there for it to happen.”

Since the essay was published, there hasn’t been “any evidence that’s come out that’s resolved the question, whether there was some conspiracy to steal the election,” the professor said.

So there you have it. Nothing has changed whatsoever. Indeed, if anything, improbable scenario has become less probable, as Lessig admits (he also concedes that there is no grounds for thinking it would be probable). The only possible news value here is that Newsweek asked Lessig if something has changed, and found out that nothing has. It’s pure air blowing in the wrong direction.

Many online came to that same conclusion.

No Newsweek, Crooked Hillary will never be our Commander In Chief, And you know this fact very well.

As you can clearly read in the above article, Newsweek Magazine, which was at one point a great publication for up and coming writers and journalists has, in the Trump era, become nothing more than a swamp propaganda extension of the deep state. An extension where they rely on shock headlines and fake news articles twisted in multiple leftist slants in order to sell their rag of a magazine. Let’s hope and pray Newsweek has its days numbered, for the sake of the nation.

Please share if you agree Newsweek needs to end its publication….

BREAKING!!! Trump Just Announced a HUGE Surprise!!

NO ONE SAW THIS ONE COMING!!!

Published

on

President Trump has done more than any president in recent history to keep the promises that he made while on the campaign trail. That’s because he’s a real man of his word who made grand promises. Those promises are necessary changes that needed to be made to make America great again. That means that everything he promised was common sense and implementable.

Everything from securing the border to bringing manufacturing jobs back to the United States is just a sample of the issues that Americans want to be fixed. Americans want Trump to support these problems because it makes our lives better. Not the lives of illegals, not the lives of administrators at the UN, the lives of middle-class Americans who voted him into office.

That means that every project that the President funds, he has to answer to those whose tax dollars are dearly given. He’s not catering to the super-rich or the extremely poor who live on welfare; he’s working for those who run a small business or work 9-5 for 40+ years and retire if they’re able to. Of course, retirement depends on social security. Those are the people who depend on the government to do its job and nothing less. That’s why the President’s new infrastructure plan is such a welcome announcement. The Washington Free Beacon reports how Trump will divide the $200 billion:

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration is finalizing its long-awaited infrastructure plan, which would push most of the financing of projects to private investment and state and local taxpayers, according to sources familiar with the proposal taking shape.

President Donald Trump, who spoke frequently of improving U.S. infrastructure during his 2016 campaign, may preview the plan in his Jan. 30 State of the Union address, but details are not expected until afterward, the sources said.

Two people briefed on it said it would likely recommend dividing $200 billion in federal funding over 10 years into four pools of funds. The administration is structuring the plan to encourage $1.35 trillion in state, local and private financing to build and repair the nation’s bridges, highways, waterworks and other infrastructure, one source said.

The numbers in the Trump plan are still in flux and could change before he unveils it. The prospects of winning approval in Congress are uncertain given that Republicans have only a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Many Republicans want to use private-sector investment to finance infrastructure projects to avoid increasing the national debt. Democrats believe that government money is necessary to produce such a large package.”

This is an excellent move on the part of successful business owner Donald Trump. He understands what it takes for the private sector to want to invest in a national project like this. If the government can defer some of the cost now, then it will make a stronger budget in the future.

“Under the Trump plan being shaped, the largest share of the federal money – $100 billion – is expected to go toward cost-sharing projects with local governments, similar to grants.

The goal would be to reduce the ratio of federal funding, which often now is 80 percent, by awarding funds only to projects that are able to provide more local funding or leverage private investment, said a business lobbyist familiar with the discussion.

Some $50 billion would be earmarked for rural projects, the lobbyist said. Those funds would help governors on projects like roads, broadband access and replacing aging lead pipes. Including a pool for rural infrastructure could also reduce concerns among some Republican senators who fear rural areas may be unable to attract private investments.

Twenty-five billion dollars would go toward existing federal infrastructure loan programs that seek to spur private investment, the lobbyist said.

The final $25 billion would be designated for so-called transformative projects – an effort being dubbed ‘American Spirit’ projects. They could include high-speed trains or the Gateway Tunnel, the stalled proposal to build a new rail connection between New York City and New Jersey.

The plan may not deliver any additional federal money than in years past. The proposal could take $200 billion from existing spending plans – although the administration has not yet committed to whether it would come from existing programs or whether the money would be found elsewhere.

The administration is unlikely to rule out any forms of funding – including increasing the federal gas tax or creating a vehicle mileage tax, which would put electric cars that now use the roads but do not consume much gasoline on the same footing as cars with internal combustion engines, sources said.

Donohue, the Chamber of Commerce president, is also expected to recommend expanding the ability of states to access private investment funds to complete projects, reducing the federal permitting process and addressing state and local permitting rules.

He will call for more federally backed workforce training – including creating an apprenticeship task force. As part of that, Donohue will reiterate the Chamber’s call for passing comprehensive immigration reform, a proposal where business has been at odds with the Trump administration.”

One of the great things about President Trump is that he understands what the government is supposed to be doing. They have a very select few jobs, including defending us and keeping the roadways safe. Focusing on those jobs and not on expanding the power of the government is a welcome reprieve from the previous leadership in the White House. It appears as though the last resident of the White House was growing monster in Washington. Trump’s plans are what will make America great. Those ideas must include small government with great accountability.
