President Trump Bilateral Meeting With Prime Minister Michel…

U.S. President Donald J Trump participates in a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Charles Michel of Belgium.  Accompanying President Trump is Dina Powell, Steven Miller, Rex Tillerson, HR McMaster, Gary Cohn.

Interesting ideological compare and contrast:

When Belgium became independent in 1830 the National Congress chose a constitutional monarchy as the form of government. Here’s President Trump meeting with the king:

      Who did Pres. Trump send back to DC as he left to go to Israel? Two men, Steve Bannon and Priebus. There was a story on Monday about the phone call and I heard the NYT had a new story tonight. Who is leaking? The fake news this week is inside DC stuff.
      I don’t believe in coincidence.

      I suppose this is a rhetorical question, but why would the President bring a ‘leaker’ on a seminal and vital world trip? The answer would have to be that he is and was hoodwinked by some superior, ultra, ultra mind boggling moles who have borrowed in whilst our ultra, ultra know-it-all internet bloggers know the ‘true’ story brought to you by innuendo, gossip and sheer perversity.

      Every Trump administration official and advisor has been brought before the Kangaroo court of blogger justice, prosecuted by paranoid, tonic swilling, gold hoarding doomsday profits of the weak minded ( and that does not cover the other side of the aisle who just make things up). All deflection from the serious matter of leaks that end up in the NYT and WaPo that have ‘opposition’ and alphabet names written in a signature tag all over them.

      The President is no naif, or fool. Trust him. Give him time. He has talented and skillful people working for him.

      Results are what he is all about.

            We are way past “National Security’ virtue signaling bullcrap. We had a Jihadi infiltrator as POTUS for 8 years. 3/4 of our congress are severely compromised. The intelligence agencies have been overrun by the Muslim Brotherhood. If Trump needed to bring some swamp critters up close, to catch the bigger ones, I can see him doing it. At this late hour, we have nothing to lose. Our biggest weakness is our failure to recognize how much trouble we are in.

              You said, ‘We are way past “National Security’ virtue signaling bullcrap’.
              No we are not and it is not ‘virtue signalling’. May be under the last President and his implants. I believe this administration knows the score. I think the electorate who voted in Pres Trump ‘knows the score’. And, that signals an awareness of “how much trouble we are in”.

              Trust the President. He did not win because he is or was unaware of the landscape.

              He will find the leaks and duly prosecute them under the law. And, yes we have much to lose if it is not done under the laws of the land. He swore the oath, to defend and protect the Constitution.

              That is what I trust.

                Below is an example of my point. Trump is telling a story about a pilot named Lt. Jack Powers. Listen (especially at the beginning) to how President Trump describes the character traits of this pilot. It sounds like he is describing himself. He goes on to describe why the pilot does what he does, where it takes him, and his strategy in battle. He talks about how badly the allies are losing when he enters the war and it looks like all is lost. He knows what it is going to cost him. Jack Powers is a “Kamikaze” dive bomber, and he takes great risks. He is also a hero, and it costs him. Start at the 11:38 mark.

    • THIS IS TREASON BY THE INTELLIGENCE OFFICER WHO LEAKED THE PICS TO DAMAGE TRUMP AND THE INVESTIGATION
      Theresa May to tackle Donald Trump over Manchester bombing evidence
      Prime minister will raise concerns at Nato summit that intelligence leaks from the US have damaged investigation

      Theresa May will confront Donald Trump over the stream of leaks of crucial intelligence about the Manchester bomb attack when she meets the US president at a Nato summit in Brussels on Thursday.

      British officials were infuriated on Wednesday when the New York Timespublished forensic photographs of sophisticated bomb parts that UK authorities fear could complicate the expanding investigation into the lethal blast in which six further arrests have been made in the UK and two more in Libya.

      It was the latest of a series of leaks to US journalists that appeared to come from inside the US intelligence community, passing on data that had been shared between the two countries as part of a long-standing security cooperation.

    I love it! He told them how our military is eradicating ISIS off of the face of the earth. Hopefully he shares the following also with these fools:

    Our military approach that General “Mad Dog” Mattis spoke about on Friday evening has completely changed thanks to our President. We aren’t going to allow the rats to scurry out anymore. They will be trapped and killed. That presents a different psychology for the radical Islamist fighters.

    https://www.bloombergquint.com/politics/2017/05/19/trump-ordered-changes-to-annihilate-islamic-state-mattis-says

    From the article linked above:

    President Donald Trump has ordered the U.S. to ramp up its campaign against Islamic State with an “annihilation” campaign to surround and kill terrorists rather than chasing them out of territory in Iraq and Syria, his defense chief said.
    “We’ve accelerated the campaign,” Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters Friday at the Pentagon.

    I hope our Lion tears the NATO countries a new asshole tomorrow because these POS have invited the Snake into their countries and aren’t willing to put any skin in the game fighting these animals across SE Asia, ME and Africa. Yet the Arab coalition is ready to go ALL IN with our President.

    Muslim nations have had enough and will work with our Lion to destroy the terrorist both on the battlefield as well as in the cyber world and financially. How many realized the following that was announced at the end of the Arab Summit:

    Trump & 55 Muslim-majority states sign pact pledging 34,000 troops to fight ISIS in Iraq & Syria.

    https://www.rt.com/news/389152-trump-muslim-leaders-terrorism/

    From the article linked above:

    Described as the Riyadh Declaration, the document was signed following US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital for a summit that brought in Islamic representatives from 55 countries, and vowed “to combat terrorism in all its forms, address its intellectual roots, dry up its sources of funding and to take all necessary measures to prevent and combat terrorist crimes in close cooperation among their states.”

    The exact membership of what the communique called the Middle East Strategic Alliance will be decided next year, but putative members have committed to assembling “a reserve force of 34,000 troops to support operations against terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria when needed.”

    Yet the NATO coalition isn’t quiet there yet! ARE YOU FU……KING KIDDING ME! They better pay that 2% and they better get on the battlefield.

      Fleporeblog,
      Couldn’t help but read some of the comments below the second article. Wow, people really think this way, kind of a shocker, since it’s completely the opposite of mine.

      No evidence is shared to back up their arguments, or should I say accusations?

      I would’ve thought RT would have been more favorable to our President since clapper told our congress recently how they are all propaganda etc. I believe he also blamed them for our President winning the election through their collusion or what have you. Not completely sure on that one, but it’s certainly plausible coming from him.

      I wish they would’ve given more troops to the cause, but they might have it written if more are needed they will do so.

      Oh, and I do not agree with the last fruit loop of the first article that the US will only help if you buy arms from us. How they come up with this stuff is beyond me, let alone give him a platform and print it. I know, I know, it’s just getting to be so tiring now.

    Well, after being elected PM of Canada in 2015, Trudeau said, in a interview with the NYT, that Canada is a postnational state with no core identity. This is a globalist dream come true:

    ‘‘There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,’’ he claimed. ‘‘There are shared values — openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, to be there for each other, to search for equality and justice. Those qualities are what make us the first postnational state.’’

    To the critics who think Trump is screwing up/has sold out:

    1. It has been last than six months. On the things he can unilaterally do, he has done them. There are only 24 houtrs in s day, he is being sabotaged at every turn. How about some realism as to what is possible?

    2. In this swamp it is impossible to figure oht who to trust. I don’t like McMaster either. However, Trump may have reason to want his voice. E.g., he knows he himself is radical departure from past policy, he may not really want to be compleletely bull in china shop, but achieve his goals more incrementally. He does have at least 4 years. I can’t explain Powell. But we trusted Trump enough to elect him. How about giving the guy a chance to get it right. (MacFarland is gone because unforunately she was close to Flynn. Trump had no choice.I have seen her intervirwed. I didn’t see her express any bitterness.)

    3. He over promised during campaign. He promised deliverables that are not completely in his control. If you didn’t realize that, that’s on you and your ignorance. If he gets a lot of his agenda implemented and there is a little progress on the rest, my god – as compared to any other candidate, that’s a miracle. There is already SCOTUS justice, TPP killed, two pipelines approved , etc., etc.

    4. The man is not god and is not going to be perfect. He will make some mIstakes. Hopefully he will correct them and learn from them. Why are you holding him to a standard of perfection when we have demanded nothing of anyone else and they have delivered nothing?

    5. Ivanka is going to be an influence. That is a given. There is a blind spot with the Trump family, they don’t realize she and Jared are anathema to base. I think because all they’ve ever heard is praise of the two. And in this hostile environment, they are the only two he trusts to not intentionally stab him in the back. That their ideas and presence is unintentionally sabotaging him – yes, that’s his blind spot. I do not think he will tolerate long Jared/Ivanka personnel who are intentionnally sticking a knife in his back. In fact I think Jared is there to watch out for that. But yes Jared/Ivanka ideas will get some currency, e.g., maternity leave. No, I do not think they will prevail on major economic po!icy or national security issues. (The extent of her influence may be inflated. Since Trump thinks Ivanka is such an asset to him, he may tout her opinion when it happens to coincide with his own decisions, as advised by other, senior advisers. That does not mean her opinion is what swayed him.) But yes, I think Ivanka will get a sop or two. OK, I can live with that if I like the other stuff.

    6. There will be plenty of time to get hysterical if he does turn out to be a sell out (although I think he has in 5 months already done enough to justify this presidency). How about we wait a little before writing him off? He deserves better from us. He’s there carrying the burden.We are not doing anything except sniping. Has any critic bothered emailing/phoning his Congress members to show support for Trump? I bet not.
