        I’m old enough to recall our US Ambassador to the U.N. calling the Human Rights council out.

        US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley lashed out at the Human Rights Council on Sunday, saying it should be “ashamed” for inviting an Iranian minister notorious for his human rights abuses to address the body’s annual meeting in Geneva this week.

        Iran Justice Minister Alireza Avaie’s slated remarks along with some 100 government ministers and other dignitaries from around the world have already elicited outrage from Iranian and international activists.

        Haley said his appearance bolsters the Trump administration’s criticisms of the UN and threats to cut US aid to the orginization.

        “The Human Rights Council should be ashamed to allow Mr. Avaei to address its membership,” the South Carolina native said in a statement.

        “Yet again the Council discredits itself by allowing serial human rights abusers to hijack its work and make a mockery of its mandate to promote universal human rights. This does nothing but reinforce the United States’ call for much needed reforms at the Council for it to be viewed as a good investment of our time and money,” she said.

        In one of her final acts as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley tried but failed to prevent a veteran Chinese diplomat from landing an influential post as the U.N. special envoy to Africa’s Great Lakes region.

        The diplomatic bid reflects growing concern among President Donald Trump’s national security team that China is seeking to assert its power through international organizations such as the United Nations in areas traditionally under the West’s sphere of influence.

        The Trump administration has been hammering them. Not sure about the current ambassador.

        I don’t know anything about this, but on the surface, it seems like a really good excuse to kick the UN out of the US. Imagine the Democrats fighting Donald Trump on keeping an institution that has endorsed slavery! I think we’d be looking at a landslide of epic proportions in 2020.

    Fair and balanced reciprocity.

    “U.S. tells Chinese diplomats to give notice of meetings”

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Chinese diplomats in the United States must now give advance notice of any meetings with state, local and municipal officials, as well as at educational and research institutions, senior State Department officials said on Wednesday.

    The officials told reporters the move was an effort to “add reciprocity” to the way U.S. diplomats are treated in China.

    It has been in the works for some time, they said, and not directly linked to any other part of the U.S.-China relationship, which has been strained by a trade war under President Donald Trump.

    “This action is a response to what the PRC (Peoples Republic of China) government does to limit the interaction our diplomats can have in China with Chinese stakeholders,” a State Department official said”

    American diplomats in China must not only notify the government there of meetings they plan to hold with Chinese people and officials, they must get permission first, the official said.

    “What we’re trying to accomplish here is … get closer to a reciprocal situation, hopefully with the desired end effect of having the Chinese government provide greater access to our diplomats in China,” the official said.”

    About time. PRC is squealing.

    Exclusive: Satellite images reveal China’s aircraft carrier ‘factory,’ analysts say

    HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) – High-resolution satellite images show that the construction of China’s first full-sized aircraft carrier is progressing steadily alongside expansive infrastructure work that analysts say suggests the ship will be the first of several large vessels produced at the site.

    The images of the Jiangnan shipyard outside Shanghai were taken last month and provided to Reuters by the non-partisan Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), building on satellite photos it obtained in April and September last year.

    Noting a series of pre-fabricated sections, bulkheads and other components stacked nearby, CSIS analysts say the hull should be finished within 12 months, after which it is likely to be moved to a newly created harbor and wharf before being fitted out.

    The vast harbor on the Yangtze River estuary, including a wharf nearly 1 kilometer long and large buildings for manufacturing ship components, is nearly complete. Much of the harbor area appeared to be abandoned farmland just a year ago, according to earlier images CSIS analyzed.

    It dwarfs an existing harbor nearby, where destroyers and other warships are docked.

    “We can see slow but steady progress on the hull, but I think the really surprising thing these images show is the extensive infrastructure buildup that has gone on simultaneously,” said CSIS analyst Matthew Funaiole.

    “It is hard to imagine all this is being done for just one ship,” he added. “This looks more like a specialized space for carriers and or other larger vessels.”

    Singapore-based military analyst Collin Koh said the modern, purpose-built facility on a sparsely populated island in the Yangtze may provide better security than the congested shipyards of Dalian in northern China. It could also help deepen co-operation between commercial and military shipbuilders.

    The London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies noted this year that China’s military shipyards were focusing increasingly on larger surface warships, “adding to the sense that Chinese naval-capability development may be entering a new phase.”

    China’s navy has recently launched four large Type 055 cruisers and its first large helicopter carrier, known as the Type 075.“

    The deal mentions developing a refinery on the island, but its potential for dual use as military base will concern the US and Australia

    “ A Chinese company signed an agreement to lease an entire island in the Solomon Islands a day after Beijing recruited the Pacific nation as its latest ally in the strategically important region, according to documents obtained on Thursday.
    The leaked documents reveal that the Solomons’ Central Province made a “strategic cooperation agreement” on Tulagi island, which has a natural deep water harbour, with the firm China Sam Group on September 22.
    A day previously, China and the Solomons officially established diplomatic relations after Beijing persuaded the impoverished Pacific nation to sever ties with arch-rival Taiwan and become its ally.”

      Tulagi island

      In the battle, U.S. Marines, under the overall command of U.S. Major General Alexander Vandegrift, successfully landed and captured the islands of Tulagi, Gavutu, and Tanambogo among which the Japanese Navy had constructed a naval and seaplane base.

      The landings were fiercely resisted by the Japanese Navy troops who, outnumbered and outgunned by the Allied forces, fought and died almost to the last man.

      I surely hope that the US Marine sacrifices are remembered.

    Was catching up on Rick Perry resignation news today and ended up on a CNN article, which mentioned that Perry had been trying to persuade the Ukrainians to replace American Hochstein on the board of Ukrainian State-owned energy company Naftogaz.
    What CNN failed to mention was that Hochstein worked at the State Department for Clinton and Kerry and was named an undersecretary of State for energy by Obama. He was also, according to his wiki page (which will no doubt be changed soon) ‘a close advisor to Joe Biden’.

    Who Gets Blamed if ISIS Fighters Come Back?
    by Con Coughlin
    October 18, 2019 at 5:00 am

    US President Donald Trump personally made a number of appeals to European leaders requesting they do more to take responsibility for their ISIS-affiliated nationals… the Europeans refused to budge, arguing that having them return home would increase the risk of Islamist-inspired acts of terrorism….

    There is now the very real prospect that ISIS, which only a year ago had suffered a catastrophic defeat with the destruction of its so-called caliphate, will be able to regroup as hordes of liberated fighters from Europe and elsewhere rejoin its ranks.

    If that happens, and ISIS succeeds in launching a new wave of terror attacks against Western targets, European leaders will have only themselves to blame for failing to accept responsibility for the actions of their citizens, no matter how reprehensible they might be.

    A sample from an unbelievably rich and entertaining essay from Conrad Black:

    FTA – The Democrats are stuck with this clunker. Maybe Pelosi wanted to humiliate the young Marxist congresswomen and Schiff and the porcine Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), who chairs the House judiciary committee. Maybe she wanted to get this out of the way now before it caused the Democrats more embarrassment, and before the long-awaited indictments of a number of prominent members of the previous administration for its unconstitutional confection and promotion of the Trump-Russian collusion fraud. It is not for me to read Pelosi’s mind, but she must have had some reason to let this anemic, spavined cat out of the bag. But this cat can’t purr and has no whiskers, let alone claws. In Monty Pythonese, “It’s a dead Cat!” (and it won’t even bounce).

    Unfortunately, Mike Mulvaney’s press conference yesterday did not go well. First, he had the jackal press salivating when he gave the impression that 2 Trump resorts were on the “emolument” top ten list for the G7 and not just one. He had unknowingly mentioned Mar-a Lago a few times instead of Doral.

    Bean counter Mulvaney was brilliant when he gave press conferences as Director of the OMB but he was way out of his league when he was peppered Thursday with serious legal questions about “Quid Pro Quo” allegations etc. It’s not a surprise that P T and some at the DOJ are angry that he unwisely injected himself in the middle of the faux Impeachment effort and let the probing press’s rapid questioning continue.They befuddled him on a legal subject he was not qualified to debate or explain competently.. His bungled effort was a gift to the MSM and the Dems on a busy and successful day for his boss. (Notwithstanding the shooting and explosions being reported near the Syrian–Turkish border this morning) POTUS deserves better.

      RolCon, IMO..

      Mulvaney was on message, brutally direct, and slapped down every attempt at “Gotcha” tossed at him by the Clown Troupe masquerading as presstitutes.

      They think they’ve “got” him only because they’re deliberately conflating and distorting his statements. Unedited video shows that what they are claiming isn’t what he said.

      It’s mid October of 2019 and Drive By Trolls are still coming here using a plethora of new names and trying to conflate Fake News with fact and pass themselves off as Trump supporters.

      But they always have the same message: President Trump needs to do his job differently (including his personnel choices) or he’s in trouble. And they think that all of their alleged concern about his choices in the face of continued success and winning on every front will be received as being organic and genuine.

      Mick Mulvaney is an asset to the President and did and excellent job yesterday. Too many unknowledgeable people allow the Lying Media to define what’s right or wrong when in fact history shows the Media is ALWAYS completely duplicitous in that roll since they ignore every crime committed by DemonRATs.

Immediately following the press conference, the blazing headlines were anything but truthful. They twisted his words and issued lies. Per the usual. Mulvaney is an asset and doing a great job.

But do you think they reported correctly? Then what would be the point in the narrative-framing and repetitive badgering?

      I guess it depends if you feel that people should play by the media rules or not. We already know that the media will never, ever give the Trump administration (or even republicans a fair shake) and instead spin and create false, negative narratives.

      But if you feel that Mulvaney should play by their rules, it just would have been one leading, loaded question after leading, loaded question. Until the end where the media will say what it wants anyway about the press conference. At the very least Mulvaney said what he wanted to say and there is video proof of him NOT being “defensive” the entire press conference.

      So I strongly disagree with your take on this.

    The crooked people who bring us fake news are reporting that the Beto Rally last night in nearby Grand Prairie, Texas had a crowd of 5,500. That is absolutely false. There were maybe three hundred Beto staffers and fans at that theater. Local ABC TV affiliate WFAA has the entire “junior high school pep rally” posted up online. Before the “main event” there were a couple of musical acts which played for a total of 37 minutes. When helicopter-hands finally came on stage he talked for like a whole 26 minutes.

    In this DFW local CBS news report at 5:10pm it shows hardly anybody waiting in line with the reporter saying that “the event starts at six.” The minute and a half field report shows stock TV footage from previous Beto appearances around the state showing lots of different people who were of course not at the Grand Prairie theater rally.

    Even while dying Cummings carried on in his hatred of the President by signing subpoenas, maybe even after his death. 😳

    I now understand those who have stated they would dance on ones enemies grave. Never before have I felt this disgusted by another human being even in his death.

    McShame is dead and Elijah too. Good!

      This is the fatal flaw for me. It is so telling what a die-hard liberal thinks of these exceptions for these groups. It’s just something that Warren wanted to take advantage of, illegally, for her own benefit. Warren can justify anything in her head. And this explanation is so pathetic on it’s own merits and even more so because Warren has no inkling of that.

    Once again in last nights rally we witnessed a man in charge. He has no fear. If we stick with him we win. If we understand what’s behind our Great President Trump (Biden, Bush, Clinton, Romney et al) we must not fail, we must not flag. This is the spot, this is the time, this is the right man, to turn back the globalist hordes, who are committed to the destruction of the USA and the West as a whole.

    Be cool, be tough, be prepared, because this evil that we are up against is entrenched and feel entitled to their station and graft. We’ve allowed this through years of apathy. Now we must stay focused, stay resolved, for our children and grandchildren.

    KAG! …by keeping our Great President Trump’s flank. He is being attacked by the entire evil cabal. With his Deplorable army we win and win big.

      Good! I have let Senator Blackburn of TN know where I (and most GOP voters) in TN stand – and that is WITH President Trump! I posted with facts (not ugly or name calling) on social media and called to her office in DC where I could only leave a message. So then I started calling her regional offices where real people answer and let them know to let her know. Again, polite, friendly but 100% firm and factual.

      My Congressman was one of the 60 who did not vote against President Trump. I positively reinforced that – with facts and links for the casual social media reader to learn more.

      Disappointed – Congressman Green voted with the Dems!

    Darn- I should have turned the channel. Geraldo — the “friend” of the president, started by mentioning his good friend Megan Kelly. Goes into lying about Trump Doral and Dim’s emoluments losing fight…He runs with Judge Nap’s “it’s unconstitutional”. Geraldo sides with the Fake News and he goes onto attacking Mick Mulvaney, who he tries to criticize by saying he must have put on Spicer’s suit. Geraldo attacks President Trump on Syria/ Turkey for a solid three minutes w/o interruption. Then goes on to criticizing President Trump tweets. Yet, seems perplexed over the huge crowds that come out to support President Trump at rallies. Geraldo ended by pitching Bloomberg for the Dims. What a “friend”, Geraldo.

    • Zy says:

      It doesn’t matter at this point. It’s being heavily pushed by the Democommies and their propagandists. It will be dragged along forever behind the current Ukraine phone call narrative. On a mega serious item like impeachment only the President’s legal team should be speaking.


    • Robert Smith says:

      Democrats hold a gun to our heads and force us to adhere to their policies. Democrats do the same to foreign governments. But, even if Trump were to (he didn’t) it would be wrong because he’s Trump. It’s all about limiting the president’s, especially Trump’s power to act and speak to foreign governments.


  36. Zy says:

    Anybody see Mueller angry Democrat, Clinton associate Andrew Goldstein on Laura Ingraham? Impeachment is going to be a very dangerous place for POTUS and America. It’s apparent that these people will stick to their narrative even in the face of opposite direction evidence. With John Roberts, Rhinos, and the Democommies it will be possible to railroad the President.

    Trump actions look ‘clearly’ impeachable, says leading conservative legal figure
    18 Oct 2019


    Jack Goldsmith, a former top Justice Department lawyer in the George W. Bush administration, thinks that President Trump deserves to be impeached, but the conservative legal scholar is also critical of how the Democrats are going about the process.

    President Trump’s actions in the Ukraine scandal appear to be “clearly” impeachable and are “probably the 300th thing Trump has done that’s an impeachable offense,” Goldsmith told Yahoo News in an interview on the “Long Game” podcast.

    From Wikipedia:

    In addition to being a professor at Harvard, Goldsmith is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He is a co-founder of the Lawfare Blog along with Brookings fellow Benjamin Wittes and Texas Law professor Robert M. Chesney.

    During Goldsmith’s tenure at the Office of Legal Counsel, he wrote at least two legal memos authorizing a program known as Stellar Wind; his memos said that the president has inherent constitutional power in a time of war to monitor Americans’ communications without a warrant.

    In March 2004, the OLC concluded the e-mail program was not legal. Acting Attorney General James Comey refused to reauthorize it.

      WaPo Admits State Department Official Raised Alarms In 2015 Over Hunter Biden’s Ukraine Business, But Was Ignored


      A State Department official in charge of Ukraine policy told House investigators this week that in early 2015 he raised concerns with then-VP Joe Biden’s office over Hunter Biden’s dealings in the country, but was rebuffed and told that the Vice President didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with the issue as his other son, Beau, was battling cancer.

      According to the Washington Post, “George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, testified Tuesday that he worried that Hunter Biden’s position at the firm Burisma Holdings would complicate efforts by U.S. diplomats to convey to Ukrainian officials the importance of avoiding conflicts of interest, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of confidentiality rules surrounding the deposition.”

      Kent told congressional investigators he was concerned that Ukrainian officials would see Hunter Biden as a means to curry influence with his father.

      Kent, who also testified about how Trump’s associates raised unfounded allegations about the former ambassador to Ukraine, is the first known example of a career diplomat who raised concerns internally in the Obama administration about Hunter Biden’s board position. The Washington Post has previously reported that there had been discussions among Biden’s advisers about whether his son’s Ukraine work would be perceived as a conflict of interest, and that one former adviser had been concerned enough to mention it to Biden, though the conversation was brief. -WaPo

          A number of years ago we had a family reunion (Thank goodness; as sadly, many have long since passed on), with quite a variety of tasty delicacies and favorite family recipies; no hot dogs or burgers. There were even a number of those amazing Jello molds of yesteryear.

          My mother hesitantly -but, by her children’s urging- made 25 mini-pan meatloaf. Gospel truth, out of all things (who knew?) the meatloaf was by far the topic of surprise and delight! No left overs –sadly.

          NO GARLIC; Trust me.
