    First foreign leader who apologized for speaking in the language of his country. It has been considered impolite to talk in a foreign language in the presence of others. However, apologies between leaders are not always required. From the start I like this guy.

      Protocol does not require a leader to apologize for addressing the audience in their native language. It is completely acceptable and in most cases expected. However, PM Conti’s actions showed respect for PDJT and the American people. Bravo, PM Conti.

      After hearing the press conference and Q&A I see Conti’s policies are very similar to PDJT’s.

      Ditch Mitch (and we want to ditch Mitch), I have an inkling he will be learning English because Italian is not a difficult language which I learned while in Mexico. Both come from the list of Romance languages. Bravo, Italia!


  3. I like this guy. Finally, Italy got it right with their leader. He sounds like the Italian version of Trump.

      Italy 🇮🇹 absolutely got it right with Giuseppe Conte as their PM as well as having Matteo Salvini and Luigi DiMaio as vital parts of their government! The Italians will destroy the European Union 🇪🇺. Not the U.K.!

      I wrote this on July 8th and absolutely stand by it!

      Brexit is a complete joke and Nigel Farage is absolutely right about PM May and her government. For those hoping the U.K. 🇬🇧 would be the one that takes down the European Union 🇪🇺and Globalism, you will be sadly mistaken. They are too far gone and there is no turning back for them.

      The European Union 🇪🇺 took the biggest punch in the face when the Italians formed their new government. Matteo Salvini is considered the DJT of Italy 🇮🇹. With the Italians joining the countries of Poland 🇵🇱, Hungary 🇭🇺, Slovenia 🇸🇮, Czech Republic 🇨🇿, Austria 🇦🇹 etc. as well as our country, the European Union 🇪🇺 and Globalism are truly starring at their extinction!

      From the article linked above:

      Salvini said on his Facebook page:

      “Two more ships with the flag of the Netherlands, Lifeline and Seefuchs, have arrived off the coast of Libya, waiting for their load of human beings abandoned by the smugglers. These gentlemen know that Italy no longer wants to be complicit in the business of illegal immigration, and therefore will have to look for other ports [not Italian]where to go.”

      Last week Italy already barred the Aquarius, a ship that carried 620 migrants. Later Spain offered to accept the ship in its port and allowing the migrants into the country. It is expected to arrive in Valencia on Sunday.

      During his election campaign, Salvini vowed to put Italians first and protect the country against illegal immigration. He promised to deport 500,000 migrants within 5 years.

            Ginsburg had pancreatic cancer (surgery on February 5, 2009), another aggressive killer. “The median survival for untreated advanced pancreatic cancer is about 3 1/2 months; with good treatment this increases to about eight months, though many will live much longer. We have encountered nine and eleven and twelve year survivors.” —

      Italy has had a speaking to each other relationship with Russia — not quite as close historically as France has in recent decades, but not awful either — Conte could be useful in creating a diplomatic bridge between DC and Moscow (and I’m sure the Italians realize this and would want it — it gives them a lot of leverage in any EU negotiations — for the EU, in spite of their wildest fantasies to the contrary, must deal with the US and Russia and must be diplomatic in these dealings; this is reality). Macron, Merkel, and May would of course regret this, but Macron has not been reliable and Merkel is completely untrustworthy as is May.

      Yes you did! Why this was mentioned at the Italian presser and not the EU presser is because a number of those ports will be in Italy.

      There is an LNG port in Croatia which was just made operational. Don’t know if they have taken any US deliveries yet. Poland has had an operational port for some time now and has taking US LNG deliveries. That port could also be used to take deliveries for Germany.

      Some dollars and capacity perspective. Just did the research out of personal curiosity.

      The Russia/Germany Nordstream 2 pipeline is a clone of 1, which has a capacity of ~5.5bcf/day. After 2, the EU dependency on russian natural gas will be ~11bcf/d.

      The original Sabine Pass Cheniere project was to gassify LNG from Qatar. 4BCF/day , cost $860 million. Need ~3 EU equivalents to offset Nordstream 1 and 2 insuring strategic EU energy independence. ‘Only’ maybe $2.6 billion cost to Europe. Maybe because they have less pipeline infrastructure they will build more small regional gasifiers. Dunno

      The first two LNG trains at Sabine Pass (thanks to fracked shale gas) cost $5.6 billion, so $2.8 billion each, and each is capable of ~4.5mtpy LNG which is about 1100 BCF/year, or 3BCF/day. Sabine Pass alone will have 6 trains by 2020, and Cheniere will have a total of 9. Four of those available if needed to Europe strategically offsets Nordstream 1 and 2.
      Trump has got this, and Conte gets it. US invests ~$25 billion for a global market (Sabine Pass is contracted to Japan and Korea long term, and China medium term). Europe invests only $2.6 billion for energy security. A DEAL.

    … [Trump’s Neighborhood-OWNERSHIP Doctrine progresses from Mideast to the Mediterranean]

    • Space: Italy will team with America.
    • Russia: Unthinkable to remove Minske Sanctions at this point.
    • Trans-Adriatic Pipeline: Strategic flexibility to mitigate dependence on coal.
    … Eval continues, recognizing strategic issues.

    President Trump: Partnership growing in every respect

    National Security

        That gets your mind off the fact that there are external means to take over and fly the plane. Whenever it takes years to determine something that is obvious, you know that it’s bulls**t. They want always to relieve corporate liability and CIA liability.

        This was part of the destabilization of the PM who also suffered the Ukraine shoot down of his other plane, and eventually was a loser in the last election, giving the US the PM they can control (who won’t make deals with China.) .

        Our government destabilized Thailand and South Korea during the same time frame getting the leaders out who were dealing closely with China.

        (In Korea, they were shocked by Moon winning and in Thailand they were surprised the Military junta went back to China for deals. So far, Malaysia hasn’t moved close to China again. But it’s early.)

    FTA – Journalists have apparently already given up on their pledge to support fellow reporters, attacking The Daily Caller’s White House correspondent after President Donald Trump gave him a question at Monday’s joint press conference.

    TheDC’s Saagar Enjeti asked President Trump during a joint presser with the Italian prime minister about his threats to shut down the government over border wall funding.

    It’s unclear how Enjeti’s question could be considered biased or “friendly” to the president, but that didn’t stop establishment media reporters from attacking the fact that TheDC got a question at all.

    Ken Dilanian of NBC News accused TheDC of being “Trump’s pet media,” while Shareblue’s Oliver Willis claimed that Enjeti asked “lifeline softball questions.”

      • Seems like Wictor is on the right track, inferring that the GCC is using micro-team warfare to minimize destruction of people and infrastructure. Lethal for all enemy leaders, but takes longer. It’s the Leaders that are the problem, so when stepping up to Lead becomes a death wish, the terrorists lose steam quickly.

          The revolution in military affairs: it’s been some time in the making; there will be more still to come –watch.

          I think the GCC (especially Saudi) got wind of some choice intel with regards to what the Obama/Clinton/Kerry group had in store for them (and after shaking them down for some millions in “be nice to us” money, that’s cold right there). There was some chatter 8 years ago that largely got overlooked, but was I believe significant — and then Iran started making Saudi snuff videos with missiles and stuff with a real vengeance…
          that’s why, when presented the opportunity the Saudis jumped on it and I don’t think they’re going to look back.

          But I have to thank this site for putting me onto the Wictor feed: I don’t always agree with his ideas or philosophies, but he is a very entertaining read and is often makes perceptive comments imhao. There are some others. They are now on my source list to be sure.

As a result, the average American household receives about $277,000 less annually than it would have gotten in the absence of six decades of accumulated regulations—a median household income of $330,000 instead of the $53,000 we get now.[…]”
