British troops in Afghanistan and
Trump tension - Why this week´s
Nato summit matters

ITV [London, UK], by Staff

President Trump is set to meet other Nato leaders for potentially fractious talks in Brussels on Wednesday with an eye toward pushing them to boost their defense budgets. But as the meeting gets underway, we take a look at why this week´s Nato summit matters: More British troops are heading to Afghanistan Ahead of his arrival Donald Trump reminded Europeans that the US had spent "many times more" on their defence than any other alliance member. Mrs May was keen to emphasise the UK was one of just five alliance members to meet the target of spending 2% of GDP on its armed

Putin isn´t going to invade Western Europe. To what end? World domination? It´s time to put this "Russia is a danger, do something" conditioning left over from the Cold War in the museum where it belongs.

The contemporary threat to Europe is from elsewhere...Africa and the Middle East, and the divisions advancing are not armoured columns but young men unarmed in civilian clothes storming the beaches in Italy while also coming overland. And there is nothing the US can do about that.

65,000 troops can be reduced to zero. Time for the Euros to reconsider their de facto pacifism to support their socialist way of life.

Why does it matter? Because to have a continent of supposed allies that are pitifully prepared for war is dangerous to the U.S.
And our "friends to the north" are spending only 1.3% on their military..guess they suppose if we go, they go. The child PM there seems to think the U.S. owes Canada..for something.

Putin recently invaded Ukraine, and then Georgia before that. It seems pretty naive to assume that he couldn´t decide to take Latvia and Estonia, maybe a chunk of Poland, or the rest of Ukraine. Especially with Germany "handled" by threatening to shut down their heating in winter, and with 10 German aircraft capable of flying, a few dozen tanks capable of driving, and most of the rest of NATO in similar pathetic military condition.

Complacence about an entirely remorseless megalomaniac like Putin isn´t a very realistic view.

Yes, but if Putin were to invade Western Europe he will have to deal with all the Muslims.

What is the national interest the USA has at stake in defending Estonia? Or, Ukraine? Or, Georgia, or any breakaway Soviet republic? An East European Treaty Organization uniting these countries and others thought in peril in a mutual defense pact would be a much better solution than committing Americans to war in a perpetual posting as "tripwires". Our savings could be invested in MAGA.

President Donald Trump is dreaming of Joe Biden, saying the former Vice President would be his ´dream´ Democratic opponent in the 2020 presidential contest. "I dream about Biden. That´s a dream," he told CBS News when asked about the next presidential election. Then he got in a dig at the former vice president. ´Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I´d love to have it be Biden,´ Trump said.

Bill Clinton called on political leaders to remember ´our common humanity´ in a thinly-veiled attack on Donald Trump as he spoke to the NAACP´s convention in San Antonio last night. The 42nd President called for humanity at a time ´when voting rights, when family security and the best interests of children, when the bonds of our neighbors and the friendships of our oldest allies are being strained.´ He did not mention Trump by name but his comments were a clear reference to the President´s family separation policy and his recent confrontations in foreign affairs which saw him refer to the European Union

President Donald Trump contradicted U.S. intelligence agencies again on Wednesday, saying that Russia was not still targeting the United States, and accused his critics of being deranged. The day after he tried to quiet a political uproar over his failure to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin during their Helsinki summit for Moscow’s 2016 U.S. election meddling, Trump adopted his usual defiant posture and dismissed assessments of Russia from the intelligence community. “We’re doing very well, probably as well as anybody has ever done with Russia. And there’s been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia,” Trump said

BUDAPEST - Hungary will quit the United Nations migration pact before its final approval, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday, adding that the accord posed a “threat to the world”. “This document is entirely against Hungary’s security interests,” Szijjarto told a news conference. The accord is to be formally adopted in December, but Hungary will not take part at the Morocco meeting, Szijjarto said, adding that the country would also oppose the pact should it come up for a vote in the General Assembly.

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

President Donald Trump conceded he may have insulted NATO leaders with his demand they step up their contributions to the organization. ´If asking for people to pay up money that they are supposed to pay is insulting maybe I did,´ he said Tuesday in remarks designed to fix the damage from his disastrous press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn?

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.

In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."

Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton´s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets. At one point during Peter Strzok´s congressional testimony last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert made a stunning claim: FBI investigators were told that Clinton´s emails had been surreptitiously forwarded to a "foreign entity."
