    Trump 'weakened' West, hurt EU interests: German FM
    US' unilateral moves are putting peace in Europe in jeopardy, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel says.
    Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel lashed out at the US over climate change and arms sales [Thomas Peter/AP]
    Germany unleashed a volley of criticism against US President Donald Trump, slamming his "short-sighted" policies that have "weakened the West" and hurt European interests.

    The sharp words from Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Monday came after Trump concluded his first official tour abroad, which took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and then Italy for a G7 summit.

    They followed Chancellor Angela Merkel's warning on Sunday that the United States and Britain may no longer be completely reliable partners.

    Germany's exasperation was laid bare after the G7 summit that wrapped up on Saturday with the US refusing so far to sign up to upholding the 2015 Paris climate accord.

    Days earlier, in Saudi Arabia, Trump had presided over the single largest US arms deal in American history, worth $110bn over the next decade and including ships, tanks and anti-missile systems.

    "Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones, and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk," Gabriel said on Monday.

    "The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union," he said. "The West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker.

    Other countries will continue to do business with them no matter their feelings on their President.

    The USA is still the wealthiest and most powerful country the world has ever seen. It would be political and economic suicide for almost any nation to shut out the USA over "feelings".

    China will surpass the USA in both regards in the next decade.

    What I find funny and also really kinda sad is when people like MrOilers are led to believe the real journalists are not to be trusted, but somehow sources like those mentioned are treated as if everything they write is the absolute 100% truth with no slant or bias or agenda...

    It's all part of Trump's plan. Discredit the media, make america turn on itself, build fear. Break up NATO. Weaken western coalitions. Make Russia Great Again.

    If you guys don't think there's no connection between Donald Trump and Russia, spend a bit of time and research which country loaned him all his money for his businesses after all American banks refused to even consider loaning him a cent.

    Doing trade with China is all well and good but a lot of people think that Chinese goods are inferior. Not just plastics/steel/mixed material goods but also foods. Some Chinese retailers have had questionable practices in the past. Tainted babies milk, pet food etc. It's fine going to Dollarama and picking up cheap goods as you don't care if it falls apart in a couple of days. However, more expensive goods may not have long a life as they should. The EU have been full of threats lately. Probably smarting from Brexit. Merkel is just a puppet for her EU unelected administration masters. The U S has been paying the bulk of the freight in NATO and European countries know this but hide their heads in the sand. U S is too valuable for them to drop. E U admins just mouthing empty rhetoric to get notices.

    NATO countries are supposed to spend 2% of their GDP on defence. Of the 28 countries only 5 do.
    The U S has military bases throughout Europe and beyond. They also have a bigger fleet of ships than most countries per population. How many times have NATO countries just sent troops in as peace keepers and let the U S do the heavy work. Trump's administration is not the first admin to mention this but I think it's the first admin that is maybe going to make an issue out of it. Canada does not pay it's allotted amount. The government in charge in Canada at the moment would rather send blankets to terrorists than an army. Yeah, buy a few thousand blankets, get a discount for buying in bulk. NATO obligation fulfilled.

    Just came across a really good podcast and book last night. Haven't had a chance to read the book, but the podcast is worth listening to:
    https://www.samharris.org/podcast/item/the-road-to-tyranny

    Do I think that Trump is doing any of this intentionally? No, not really. He's not a genius. He's an imbecile with an i d i o t savant like ability to tell people what they think they want to hear. That's what makes this whole situation even scarier. Can you imagine if someone with a shred of competence that had an actual cohesive ideology and plan for where to take the country came along? In the end, Trump might well end up serving the purpose of further inoculating the US political system from a much worse situation.

    But, people around him very much are authoritarians. Bannon specifically. And they are doing extreme damage to US institutions and the political discourse in their country. Meanwhile, China and Russia are probably laughing their heads off. If Putin had written a script for what actions a US president could take to damage people's view of democracy, the press, experts/elite, and just basic facts of the world, along with damaging the Western alliance and rules based system that has held back the darkness emanating from Russia and other authoritarian regimes, it would be a mirror image of what Trump's done.

    You must remember that countries like Germany, who only has two bases abroad (in France and the US)
    There are nearly 800 American bases worldwide spread through more than 70 countries with a roughly 150,000 troops stationed abroad. So only a portion of the 3.3 percent of the GDP on military spending is NATO relate. The other is in support of United States Imperialism and the Military Industrial Complex

    President Barack Obama was mercilessly ridiculed by Republicans for his supposed strategy of "leading from behind." There is a lot of legitimate criticism with which one can debate President Obama's tenure in office, particularly his foreign policy. There are strong arguments to be made for and against his efforts and ultimately history will have to help us sort it out.


    But as I watched President Trump stumble his way through his recent trip through Europe, I couldn't help but think how hypocritical and hollow those criticisms were. Leading from behind? Tell that to the climate which President Trump and his GOP allies seem determined to pollute when almost every other nation on Earth is leading in the opposite direction. (Recent news shows how India is turning from coal to renewables, and China as well) Leading from behind? As Mr. Trump cozies up to Vladimir Putin it is up to France's new president Emmanuel Macron to lay out the case for democracy and human rights, you know the kind of speeches that President Reagan used to make. Leading from behind? Our friends in Europe used to respect the United States and join us in strengthening a world order. Now Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel says Germany can't trust us. And why should she? Most of Europe agrees with her.


    Mr. Trump is praising murderous despots like Rodrigo Duterte, the President of the Philippines, and literally pushing his way past the leaders of Europe as he preens on the world stage. Our enemies and allies are taking the mark of a man for whom they have little respect. So far, most of Mr. Trump's allies in Congress seem to fiddle as our foreign policy burns.


    Whatever you thought of the president of the United States in previous administrations, there was no doubt that he was the leader of the free world. But today there is a serious vacuum coming out of Washington - on both the leadership and the free world part. The world is rushing to figure out what this means. I think new leaders will rise in response to the challenge, both here and overseas. In the meantime we spin the wheel of fate without a moral or strategic compass guiding our ship of state.

    I guess Team Trump has decided to go full DPRK: http://archive.is/lpLFs

    Spicer channeled his boss as he declared that Trump’s speech to leaders of more than 50 Arab and Muslim nations “was a historic turning point that people will be talking about for years to come” and “was met with nearly universal praise.” He claimed that the president single-handedly “united the civilized world in the fight against terrorism and extremism” and that his meetings at the Group of Seven summit in Sicily “were marked by outstanding success.”

    “We’ve never seen before at this point in a presidency such sweeping reassurance of American interests and the inauguration of a foreign policy strategy designed to bring back the world from growing dangers and perpetual disasters brought on by years of failed leadership,” Spicer said.
    I mean yeah, I guess you could say it was a historic turning point that will be talked about for years to come. Just in the exact opposite way that Trump would like. I'm looking forward to every picture of Trump now being surrounded by people holding little note pads, furiously writing down the mana from the heavens they are receiving.

    Also, it's nice to see that Sissi got the message about "no lectures": http://archive.is/uNILH

    Having been assured by the president at a Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, summit that he would receive no “lecture” from Washington for his domestic repression,Egyptian strongman Abdel Fatah al-Sissi returned to Cairo last week and immediately doubled down. More than 20 news sites were shut and dozens of secular liberal political activists arrested, including Khaled Ali, a human rights lawyer who had said he might run against Mr. Sissi in the 2018 presidential election.

    On Monday, Mr. Sissi ratified a new law imposing unprecedented restrictions on civil society groups. The new rules essentially make it illegal for Egyptians to form independent associations without the government’s permission, and give the regime’s intelligence and security services authority to control all foreign funding for them. Human rights groups, among others, said it will become impossible for them to legally operate inside the country. Egypt could soon resemble nations such as Cuba and North Korea, where only state-controlled civic groups exist.

    The law was widely condemned as draconian when Mr. Sissi’s rubber-stamp parliament passed it last November. Critics pointed out that it violated Egypt’s constitution as well as international conventions it has joined. Leading members of Congress, including Republican Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) and John McCain (Ariz.), warned that they would attach new conditions to U.S. aid to Egypt if the law were enacted. The blowback apparently gave the regime pause: Mr. Sissi did not sign the legislation.



    Following his second embrace by Mr. Trump in less than two months, however, Mr. Sissi moved forward. His action followed a terrorist attack last week on Coptic Christian pilgrims that killed 28 people. But the activists, media and civil society groups targeted by Mr. Sissi have nothing to do with the Islamic State, whose Egyptian affiliate has grown steadily stronger since Mr. Sissi took power in a 2013 military coup.
    All very historic, you see.

    Breaking news

    Trump may take the USA out of the Paris Accord.

    Burn coal, drill, drill, drill, gut the EPA, drop regulations and allow companies to pollute.

    Hello 1970's


    Vehicle emissions are 1/1000th that prior to the EPA.












    Make "America Great Again!" Just like Jhina



    All for corporate greed at the expense of the lowly workers who die just breathing the air and drinking the water.


    Tom Lehrer song from the 1960's


    Time was when an American about to go abroad would be warned by his friends or the guidebooks not to drink the water. But times have changed, and now a foreigner coming to this country might be offered the following advice:

    If you visit American city,
    You will find it very pretty.
    Just two things of which you must beware:
    Don't drink the water and don't breathe the air!

    Pollution, pollution!
    They got smog and sewage and mud.
    Turn on your tap
    And get hot and cold running crud!

    See the halibuts and the sturgeons
    Being wiped out by detergeons.
    Fish gotta swim and birds gotta fly,
    But they don't last long if they try.

    Pollution, pollution!
    You can use the latest toothpaste,
    And then rinse your mouth
    With industrial waste.

    Just go out for a breath of air
    And you'll be ready for Medicare.
    The city streets are really quite a thrill -
    If the hoods don't get you, the monoxide will.

    Pollution, pollution!
    Wear a gas mask and a veil.
    Then you can breathe,
    Long as you don't inhale!

    Lots of things there that you can drink,
    But stay away from the kitchen sink!
    The breakfast garbage that you throw into the Bay
    They drink at lunch in San Jose.*

    So go to the city,
    See the crazy people there.
    Like lambs to the slaughter,
    They're drinking the water
    And breathing [cough] the air!

    One of three countries to do so. Puts them in the big leagues with Nicaragua and Syria, two countries that everyone looks up to.

    Amazing that Obama was grilled for having a BlackBerry when he became President because of possible security issues and had to get NSA approval.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/23/us...s/23berry.html

    The Cheeto in Chief is giving out his personal cell number to World leaders after blasting Hillary Clinton for having a private server for her emails.

    Trump's cellphone diplomacy raises security concerns
    http://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/05...urity-concerns

    President Trump has been handing out his cellphone number to world leaders and urging them to call him directly, an unusual invitation that breaks diplomatic protocol and is raising concerns about the security and secrecy of the U.S. commander in chief's communications.

    Trump has urged leaders of Canada and Mexico to reach him on his cellphone, according to former and current U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the practice. Of the two, only Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken advantage of the offer so far, the officials said.


    Trump also exchanged numbers with French President Emmanuel Macron when the two spoke immediately following Macron's victory earlier this month, according to a French official, who would not comment on whether Macron intended to use the line.


    All the officials demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal the conversations. Neither the White House nor Trudeau's office responded to requests for comment.


    The notion of world leaders calling each other up via cellphone may seem unremarkable in the modern, mobile world. But in the diplomatic arena, where leader-to-leader calls are highly orchestrated affairs, it is another notable breach of protocol for a president who has expressed distrust of official channels. The formalities and discipline of diplomacy have been a rough fit for Trump — who, before taking office, was long easily accessible by cellphone and viewed himself as freewheeling, impulsive dealmaker.


    Presidents generally place calls on one of several secure phone lines, including those in the White House Situation Room, the Oval Office or the presidential limousine. Even if Trump uses his government-issued cellphone, his calls are vulnerable to eavesdropping, particularly from foreign governments, national security experts say.


    "If you are speaking on an open line, then it's an open line, meaning those who have the ability to monitor those conversations are doing so," said Derek Chollet, a former Pentagon adviser and National Security Council official now at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.


    A president "doesn't carry with him a secure phone," Chollet said. "If someone is trying to spy on you, then everything you're saying, you have to presume that others are listening to it."


    The caution is warranted even when dealing with allies. As German Chancellor Angela Merkel's learned in 2013, when a dump of American secrets leaked by Edward Snowden revealed the U.S. was monitoring her cellphone, good relations don't prevent some spycraft between friends.


    "If you are Macron or the leader of any country and you get the cellphone number of the president of the United States, it's reasonable to assume that they'd hand it right over to their intel service," said Ashley Deeks, a law professor at the University of Virginia who formerly served as the assistant legal adviser for political-military affairs in the U.S. State Department.

    The practice opens Trump up to charges of hypocrisy. Throughout last year's presidential campaign, he lambasted Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for using a private email server while she was secretary of state, insisting she should not be given access to classified information because she would leave it vulnerable to foreign foes.


    Presidents' phone calls with world leaders often involve considerable advance planning. State Department and National Security Council officials typically prepare scripted talking points and background on the leader on the other end of the line. Often an informal transcript of the call is made and circulated among a select group — sometimes a small clutch of aides, sometimes a broader group of foreign policy officials. Those records are preserved and archived.


    The White House did not respond to questions on whether the president is keeping records of any less-formal calls with world leaders.


    Trump's White House is already facing scrutiny for apparent efforts to work outside usual diplomatic channels.

    These are the core tenents of the Paris Climate Agreement:

    (a) Holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, recognizing that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change;

    (b) Increasing the ability to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and foster climate resilience and low greenhouse gas emissions development, in a manner that does not threaten food production;

    (c) Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.

    Ever think that maybe, just maybe, something that basically every country agrees on, based on information that their is scientific consensus on is probably the best course of action? If it was a wealth distribution scheme there would be more than just the US pulling out, I'm sure China wouldn't be too happy with that either. But no it's a giant conspiracy that every single other country in the would happens to be in on.

    Should this become a separate Trump on climate policy thread? I believe admin wanted various Trump issues separated out.

    That would require 78 threads

    I don't see why it's even necessary to have more than one thread on Trump/US politics. It all runs together anyways.

    Do we need another thread to discuss what covfefe means?

    How about a daily Twit Tweet thread?

    The decision was made, protest it once, then fall in line and move on.

    I kinda liked the Trump generic thread. It got to be a bit of a riot of thoughts but people seemed to bumble through it.

    I love Trump for his fight against the globalist . But, if we to talk about zombie lemmings I went downtown Edmonton for the first time in 6 years . I think people are totally unaware of their surroundings for I didn't see 1 person look both ways when crossing the road, they just walk around starring in to their phones, bumping in to each other. Had to use the washroom , so try the Timmy's by Manulife and they wanted a receipt...well, as a big timmies drinker I'm now in full boycott. So find a bathroom in the food court and like every stall, just a pig sty. Nobody knows how to flush a toilet , there's **** all over the seats , the walls, diabetes straps laying all over..and these are our 'professionals?....what a zoo. And the bus drivers are so aggressive cutting everyone off like they own the road. Never seen anything like it. Total lack of respect, no kindness, no awareness....just zombie slobs.

    Oh man. You edit/modified/changed your post. Whether it was an arrow, moving a comma, adding a period, don't try to weasel out of it like you normally do. Just fess up and stop constantly wanting the last word when someone points out your inaccuracies.

    See the difference changing things can make.

    Get a grip. I posted and during that time, another poster interspaced between the post I was responding to. So I added the arrows to indicate I was responding to the earlier post.

    As I said, get a grip. Who made you the thread Sheriff? The grammar police union?
