Secretary of State Pompeo in Jordan – Joint Press Availability….

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is conducting a regional visit to multiple allies and partners in the anti-ISIS campaign.  Today, Secretary Pompeo is in Jordan for discussions as the U.S. anticipates withdrawing troops from Syria.

.

Meanwhile, National Security Adviser John Bolton is in Turkey after announcing from Israel the U.S. will not withdraw from Syria until Turkey (NATO ally) agrees not to kill the Kurdish fighters. Turkish President Recep Erdogan said emphatically there would never be such assurances, therefore U.S. troops will never leave Syria.

          During my first night in Cairo, I was part of a college group who met a local man who befriended us and gave us some arriving advice for the next six weeks.

          It was obvious, he would look for tourists to buy him beer.

          As we were sitting in a beer garden, he told us he would be overseeing his daughter’s check up the next day to confirm her virginity prior to her upcoming wedding. Explained that he could have her killed if the test came out a certain way.

          I will never forget his statement, and I will never forget that Egypt never was a moslem country before being invaded by this savage theocracy.

          So be it. Glad el-Sisi has approved a new cathedral to be built in Cairo.

          May God bless all.

      Before you get your Pom poms out, ask if it’s a good idea for the US to prop up unelected dictators, King’s, and princes. Especially since we are borrowing from China at 4%apy to give this money away. To rich Kingdoms, and Israel. Just borrowing money, to give it away should be enough of a sign we are screwed up. Never mind who we are giving the money to, and why. Paying Jordan not to attack Israel, paying Israel for it’s protection and……and then Israel gives our money to Palestinians, so they won’t attack Israel. And we also give money to Palestinians, so they won’t attack Israel…or Jordan.

      What was that warning about NOT getting involved in foreign entanglements?

      Bolton has just been to Israel to drink from the cup of Zionist Nuttyyahoo’s bloodthirsty intentions – and to receive his ‘orders’ from his boss. The Kurds as usual are just being used as a ‘tool’. They have been left to massacre time and again by USA and are only used as a lever when it suits the war mongers to pull out, like a little toy. Pathetic.

              Many Christians understand the power of church to subvert if used and comprehend that Pope at the Vatican today has become nothing but a tool of deep state. Evil is very clever. It also thinks NOTHING OF USING ITS OWN PEOPLE MERCILESSLY FOR ITS OWN AGENDA. In fact, like abuse within a family, it feels safer abusing its own than others. The German Rothschilds is an example. Maybe evil is more cowardly than clever.

    I always enjoy this one – explains it all. In a nutshell, its a big hot mess. One which USA should keep out of. The only reason they do not is due to who actually has interests in the US military supplies. That is all. Nothing else. Nada. All of the narratives built around it from ‘protecting Israel to keeping them out before they get in’ is rubbish.

    Isn’t it about time we kicked those genocidal $%#@! out of NATO? Although they have probably made some even better friends in the Pentagon if they are what keeps American troops in Syria forever. Now the Pentagon could make America’s southern border their top priority, or at least a priority, rather than Syria and Afghanistan and Muslims, et al, but I guess that would just be too much to ask of them for much, if any, of that $730,000,000,000 they get a year that is suppose to be for the defense of America. One would have thought it was suppose to be for the defense of America anyway. Kind of gets one to wondering just where their loyalties are.

    There’s your problem, Bolton. “Turkey (NATO ally)”

    NATO is bad news since the post-Cold War era.

    NATO is the NWO military, also known as the shadow government globalist military industrial complex of which the Pentagon (or parts thereof under deep state) belongs.

    NATO is part of Agenda 21 in the western world.

    Note when you read below about Argentina, it was a repository for Third Reich capital exit from Germany so it’s no coincidence that the current Pope is ……..from Argentina.

    https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/242908/operation-gladio-by-paul-l-williams/9781633884786/

    Journalist Paul L. Williams presents evidence suggesting the existence of “stay-behind” units in many European countries consisting of five thousand to fifteen thousand military operatives. According to the author’s research, the initial funding for these guerilla armies came from the sale of large stocks of SS morphine that had been smuggled out of Germany and Italy and of bogus British bank notes that had been produced in concentration camps by skilled counterfeiters. As the Cold War intensified, the units were used not only to ward off possible invaders, but also to thwart the rise of left-wing movements in South America and NATO-based countries by terror attacks.

    Williams argues that Operation Gladio soon gave rise to the toppling of governments, wholesale genocide, the formation of death squads, financial scandals on a grand scale, the creation of the mujahideen, an international narcotics network, and, most recently, the ascendancy of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a Jesuit cleric with strong ties to Operation Condor (an outgrowth of Gladio in Argentina) as Pope Francis I.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/03/nato-spending-2017.html

    The world’s most powerful military alliance will convene in Brussels next week – and President Donald Trump will be pushing the 28 other NATO members to spend more money.

    “I’m going to tell NATO, ‘You gotta start paying your bills. The United States is not going to take care of everything,’ ” Trump said Thursday during a rally in Great Falls, Montana.

    In 2017, the U.S. accounted for 51.1 percent of NATO’s combined GDP and 71.7 percent of its combined defense expenditure. In short, the U.S. contributed more funds to NATO than Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Canada combined.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. spent $685.9 billion on defense.

    Yes the ME mess is complex because of the fact that the affected countries’ political, religious and ethnic differences are not concentric nor do they necessarily align geographically or culturally. So far, no one has figured how to sort it all out.

    There are too many factions unaligned with each other (i.e., too many “sides”) for the U.S. to successfully pick one and oppose the rest. I, at least, don’t see a clear winner.

    PDJT has a practice of surrounding himself with folks of differing opinions on a problem and it’s best solutions. I trust this President more than any previous administrations to make decisions best for the U.S. in the long term.

    Surely Trump is right in principle and practice: A brigade-level (three regiments) on-the-ground American military presence, with consequent loss of life for nothing but a perpetual “police action”, is neither necessary nor desired.

    If Erdogan persists in his vendetta, butt him out’ve NATO and task the Sixth Fleet to blockade the Dardanelles; but let no American soldier, sailor, or Marine sacrifice a pinprick to this thug’s delusions of grandeur. To those who say, “But this abandons the field to Putin and Teheran”, we reply “They’re welcome to it.” Meantime, we’ll back the Kurds in ways that matter, and Erdogan can point his Janissaries elsewhere.

    It’s about oil. The Kurds have oil, we can sell them arms to protect themselves. Looks like they will have to do what Israel did, all migrate to one area and call it their own.

    Their oil proceeds can buy an Iron Dome just like Israel.

    Kurds are excellent fighters. Erdo is nerdo. He’s may not last much longer. The problem with Islamic terrorism is eventually they start killing each other off. Homicidal maniacs always do. Their shelf life is short….
