It’s incredible how Democrats can all use their ridiculous sound bite and say that a Wall doesn’t work. It does, and properly built, almost 100%! They say it’s old technology – but so is the wheel. They now say it is immoral- but it is far more immoral for people to be dying!

I’m in the Oval Office. Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall. You voted yes in 2006 and 2013. One more yes, but with me in office, I’ll get it built, and Fast!

I am the only person in America who could say that “I’m bringing our great troops back home, with the victory,” and get BAD press. It is Fake News and Pundits who have FAILED for years that are doing the complaining. If I stayed in Endless Wars forever, they would still be unhappy!

I campaigned on Border Security, which you cannot have without a strong and powerful Wall. Our Southern Border has long been an “Open Wound,” where drugs, criminals (including human traffickers) and illegals would pour into our Country. Dems should get back here an fix now!

An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED, as has been reported by the media. Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see-through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides). Makes sense to me!

2…………>Back To The Cold War: Spy Games?

 

“On December 28, 2018 staff members of the Russian Federal Security Service detained US citizen Paul Whelan in Moscow while on a spy mission,” FSB’s public relations center said about the arrest of a US national in the capital Moscow on suspicions of espionage.

Paul Whelan was detained and a criminal investigation was underway, with espionage charges in Russia entailing prison sentences of 10 to 20 years.

3…………>Applied Global Warming: Drought-Stricken Kenya

 

“Turkey has given support for refugees during the [Muslim holidays] Eidal-Adha and Eid al-Fitr,” Ali Governor Korane of Kenya said, emphasizing that Turkish institutions mainly distributed food and clothing for the refugees and also for the population in Garissa.

The main issues to tackle in the over-600,000-populated county are “sponsorship for students and youth empowerment, cultural development and building of health and education facilities especially, he continued saying that:

“We look forward to a lot of support from the Turkish institutions and authorities, and we appeal to them to come to support your brothers and sisters in Garissa.”

The Governor reported that 23 counties out of 47 in his country are affected by the drought, the worst hit areas being Northern Kenya and the coastal region, both predominantly inhabited by Muslims.

As 2018 is about to join eternity and 2019 is rising on the rays of light, let’s pause and remember those who paled in the glow of time, but not in the endless pages of our minds and the heartbeats of our hearts.  Let’s remember their unconditional love for us and our country, and pray that our trials and glories will bless us with eyes to see and the voice to speak their words of wisdom.

2…………>General Kelly Story: The Life Within

 

A former Homeland Security secretary, Mr. Kelly is well versed in the complexities of immigration and border security and his views seemingly contrast with Mr. Trump’s harsh rhetoric on migration, saying now that President Trump backed away from his campaign pledge to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.

“To be honest, it’s not a wall,” Mr. Kelly said.

“But we left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration when we asked people what they needed and where they needed it. The President still says ‘wall’ — oftentimes frankly he’ll say ‘barrier’ or ‘fencing’, now he’s tended toward steel slats,” Mr.Kelly admitted America had an “immigration problem and said the President was now pushing for a steel slat structure, rather than a concrete wall.

Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally, They can’t, If we had a Wall, they wouldn’t even try!

 

US President Donald Trump has deflected blame for the deaths of two Guatemalan children in US custody and has instead pointed the finger at Democrats, saying the children were “very sick before they were given over to Border Patrol”, and it was the fault of Democrats “and their pathetic immigration policies”.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said the system was overwhelmed, and also called on Congress to act urgently to address the “humanitarian crisis”.

4…………>Syria Will Be A Victory: Sen. Graham

 

A top Republican has said PresidentTrump committed to defeating IslamicState (IS) in Syria, despite his decision to withdraw US troops, Senator Lindsey Graham said as was now reassured of the president’s commitment after meeting him on Sunday.

Mr. Trump’s troop’s withdrawal plan was met with strong criticism from major allies, as well as senior Republicans like MrGraham, but the president and WhiteHouse have yet to comment on any formal plan changes.

On 19 December, MrTrump announced the pullout of some 2,000 troops, asserting that IS had been defeated, critics of the planning dispute this claim, arguing the move could lead to a resurgence of IS which would hurt national security.

US troops have helped rid much of Syria’s north-east of the jihadist group, but pockets of fighters remain, with two people have since resigned since the decision was announced in protest of the policy change, DefenceSecretary Jim Mattis and a top US official in the fight against IS, BrettMcGurk.

Lindsey Graham, who had earlier called the withdrawal decision a “huge Obama-like mistake”, told journalists: “The president assured me he is going to make sure he gets the job done. (BBC)

“Chairman Kim made clear that he wants to meet President Moon frequently in 2019 as well to move forward discussion on peace and prosperity and expressed an intent to resolve the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula together,” said the spokesperson, according to the agency

Capping off a historic year of cross-border meetings, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called for the continuation of peace talks in 2019 in a letter to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, local media reported on Sunday

“Even though there will be a lot of difficulties going forward, our hearts will be opened to each other depending on how much effort we make,” he added.

2…………>Major Earthquake: Philippines

 

“People in the Sangihe and Talaud Islands are encouraged to remain calm because this earthquake has no potential for a tsunami in the territory of Indonesia,” Rahmat Triyono, the head of Indonesia’s Earthquake and Tsunami Center, said after a major 7-magnitude earthquake rattled the southern Philippine island of Mindanao early Saturday morning.

The quake struck southeast of Davao City at a depth of 59 kilometers (36 miles), according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), with the magnitude of the quake was 6, but later revised it to 7.

No initial causalities or damage was reported.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a tsunami warning for parts of the Philippines and Indonesia, but later, the center said that the tsunami alert was withdrawn.

“A group of terrorists was planning to carry out a series of aggressive attacks targeting state institutions, particularly economic ones, as well as tourism and Christian places of worship,” the Egypt Interior ministry statement said after police in Egypt eliminated dozens of militants during raids on their hideouts in Giza and North Sinai following a terror attack that killed killed three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide.

The raids followed Friday’s roadside bomb attack on a tour bus in Giza, and police confiscation of bomb-making materials, ammunition and a large number of weapons.

Security is already tight in Egypt, with the tourist season at its height and the country’s main Christian minority, the Copts, preparing to celebrate Orthodox Christmas on 7 January.

5…………> Will Pelosi Impeach Trump? A Prediction

 

“I think it’s more likely than not he will get impeached,” the American University professor Allan Lichtman predicts now since President Trump cannot rely on a Republican-controlled Congress to shield him from impeachment or removal from office proceedings, a process that could be triggered by a single majority vote in the House of Representatives.

That plan has long been a hot topic among the president’s opponents in the Democratic Party, led by his personal psychologist, Rep.Maxine “Impeach 45” Waters and her  “la gumbas”, Nancy “No, Amy is not my daughter” Pelosi and Charles “I cried tears for the Muslims” Schumer.

After previously predicting 30 years of presidential elections correctly, now Lichtman is convinced that as of 2019, and for the remainder of his term, Trump will be engaged in a fight to remain in office — a fight he well may lose. (DW)

1…………>The Man Behind The Words: “Killing Me Softly”

 

The incredibly gifted poet who wrote the words for Roberta Flack super hit “Killing Me Softly with His Song”, the theme to TV series “Happy Days”, and the English lyrics to the Brazilian bossa nova melody, “The Girl from Ipanema”, has passed away, aged 91.

Norman Gimbel, the Oscar and Grammy-winning lyricist, has died on 19 December at his home in Montecito, California, with music rights organization BMI said it was “greatly saddened” by news of his passing, describing him as a “truly gifted and prolific writer” who would be greatly missed by friends and fans.

His early successes included the lyrics to Andy Williams’s 1956 hit single “Canadian Sunset”, the songs for popular shows such as “Laverne & Shirley”, “Wonder Woman” and “HR Puffnstuff”.

In 1984 Gimbel was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

2…………>Mr.Xi’s Perestroika: Weed Out The Corruption

 

In his never-ending campaign to ensure that his “21th Century Communist revolution” will not fail, China’s President Mr.Xi pledged to take down both high-level”tigers” and low-level”flies” in a drive to purge the ruling party of rampant corruption, an initiative has won him a broad popularity among the general public, but his critics, including the billionaire Mr.Guo, have called the crackdown a convenient way to eliminate political enemies.

The latest victim of his zeal is China’s former deputy intelligence chief Ma Jian who has been sentenced to life in prison for corruption, after found guilty of accepting bribes and insider trading, was also ruled to have used his political power to aid the operations of US-based businessman Guo Wengui, who has published a series of online videos in which he makes sensational allegations of corruption in the upper echelons of China’s ruling Communist Party.

Mr. Ma, who previously was the vice-minister of the state security bureau, was also ordered to pay more than 50 million yuan ($10.35 million) in penalties.

4…………>Trump’s Wall With A Flat Tire: Democratic Obstructionists

 

 

“The President is not going to get his border wall, not with the changes [in Congress] that are coming,” Joe Donnelly, the defeated Democratic Senator from Indiana who is leaving Congress told Communist News Network, while Mr.Trump insists that “The US needs a wall on the border to stop drugs, human trafficking, gang members and criminals”.

The continuing partial US government shutdown is the result of a failure of Democrats and Republicans to agree on compromise legislation to fund the government that Trump insists must include more than $5 billion to finance the remainder of the border wall with Mexico.

The shutdown now looks certain to continue into 2019, following the failure of the Senate and the House of Representatives to take any action on it in their very brief gatherings on Thursday afternoon.

Watch sell stop at 22800.

We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects. Read “Ziban Must Die” for more details on the coming collision of Trump’s administration with “Deep State” operators funded by the billionaires’ supporters of the New World Disorder.

2…………> Mr.Xi’s Eye: Smart Chinese Uniforms

 

Chinese schools have begun enforcing “smart uniforms” embedded with computer chips to monitor student movements and prevent them from skipping classes, triggering an alarm as a GPS system tracks student movements even beyond the school grounds.

As students enter the school, the time and date are recorded along with a short video that parents can access via a mobile app, and facial recognition further ensures that each uniform is worn by its rightful owner to prevent students from cheating the system.

Mr.Xi’s “New 21st century Communist playground” of China is building a digital dictatorship to exert control over its 1.4 billion citizens, with Beijing making regular calls on all schools to develop “smart campuses”, starting with the eleven schools in the south-west province of Guizhou have introduced the uniforms, which were developed by local tech firm Guizhou Guanyu Technology.

“Either we build (finish) the Wall or we close the Border,” PresidentTrump tweeted after nearly a week of deadlock in Washington over the federal budget, threatened to shut down the border with Mexico over illegal immigration if Congress fails to fund his proposed wall.

Confirming the threat to close the border was real, the White House said negotiations with Congress had stalled.

The dispute has caused a partial US government shutdown.

Hundreds of thousands of federal employees are either on unpaid leave or continue to work but do not know when they will be paid.

Both Congress chambers met for just a few minutes on Thursday but took no steps to end the closure.

Later in the week, a new House will be sworn in, dominated by opposition Democrats who won the mid-term elections last month, but Mr.Trump’s Republicans will retain the Senate with a slightly larger majority.

4…………>Aliens Are Coming: Blue Night NY Sky

 

An explosion at an electrical power station in New York City on Thursday evening lit up the sky with an eerie blue light, triggering a flurry of speculation on social media, with some wondering if aliens had landed, while others thought something supernatural might be to blame for the ghostly glow.

The believers wondered if the hand of God was at work over New York, heralding perhaps a new Pope, or the moment when Evangelicals say true believers will be swept up, or “raptured”, to heaven.

The New York Police Department took to Twitter to dispel any misunderstandings, and reassure the public that the strange light was caused by something much more down to earth: a transformer explosion at a Con Edison power station in the Astoria neighborhood of the borough of Queens.

2…………>Across The Pond In A Barrell: “Bonne Chance”

 

 

“For the time being my capsule is behaving very, very well and I’ve got favorable winds forecast until Sunday. Maybe Barbados, although I would really like it to be a French island like Martinique or Guadeloupe,” the words of a French adventurer that would set sail for the Caribbean in a barrel-shaped orange capsule, hoping to complete the three-month voyage from the Canary Islands with the aid of ocean currents alone.

Former military paratrooper Jean Jacques Savi journey will help oceanographers study the Atlantic with the help of a reinforced his orange resin-coated plywood capsule before setting off and furnished it with a bunk, kitchen and storage space, with supplies including wine and foie gras.

“That would be easier for the paperwork and for bringing the barrel back. For the time being my capsule is behaving very, very well and I’ve got favorable winds forecast until Sunday”, he said.

3…………>An Anatomy Of A Shutdown: Sacred Cows Out

 

A partial US government shutdown is likely to continue into next week amid an impasse over funding for President Trumps proposed Mexico border wall as both Congress chambers adjourned within minutes without acting to end the six-day closure, with many lawmakers did not return to Washington for the sessions.

Whether or not to fund the wall is the issue holding up the passing of a government funding budget, with both sides now seem to accept that the dispute will continue into 2019, leaving hundreds of thousand federal employees either on unpaid leave or not knowing when they will get paid.

Mr.Trump says he will not compromise on his demands for funding to build a border wall between the US and Mexico to tackle illegalimmigration, and is refusing to sign a wider spending package, forcing large parts of the government to shut down.

Nine of 15 federaldepartments, including State, Homeland Security, Transportation, Agriculture and Justice began partially shutting down after funding for them lapsed at midnight (05:00 GMT) last Saturday.

Hundreds of thousands of federalemployees will have to work unpaid or are furloughed, a kind of temporary leave.

Customs and borderstaff will keep working, although their pay will be delayed, airports will continue operating, and 80% of NationalParksemployees will be sent home, and parks could close, although some may stay open with limited staff and facilities.

90% of housingdepartment workers will take unpaid leave, which could delay loan processing and approvals, and most of the InternalRevenueService (IRS) will be sent on unpaid leave, including those who assist taxpayers with queries.

The FoodandDrugAdministration will pause routine inspections but “continue vital activities”, with the remaining 75% of the federal government is fully funded until September 2019 – so the defence, veterans affairs, labour and education departments are not affected.

4…………>Comrade Putin New Toy: Avangard Missile

 

The Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle flies 27 times faster than the speed of sound, or about 20700 miles per hours within the atmosphere, making it impossible to intercept, deputy prime minister YuriBorisov told Russia’s Zvezda television channel, after President Vladimir Putin oversaw what he described as the conclusive successful test of the vehicle that was hailed as a reliable guarantee of Russia’s security for decades to come.

“The latest tests have shown that it has reached speeds close to 30 Machs, practically at these speeds, no anti-missile can knock it down,” Borisov said.

In Wednesday’s test, the weapon was reportedly launched from the Dombarovskiymissilebase in the southern Ural mountains, and it successfully hit a practice target on the Kurashootingrange on Kamchatka, 3,700 miles away.

2…………>Rainy, Stormy Christmas; Syria’s Camps

 

Heavy downpour caused severe flooding in rural areas of northern Syria, destroying tents at 11 refugee camps and leaving tens of thousands of people to face the winter without shelter, with an estimated 25,000 refugees searching for shelter at other camps.

No casualties have yet been reported as a result of the flooding, but numerous heads of livestock have reportedly perished, and requests for emergency assistance have been received from the Atme, Qah, Omar and Khirbat al-Jawz refugee camps in the northwestern Latakia province.

Mustafa Yusuf, director of Syria’s White Helmets civil-defense organization, told Anadolu Agency that the organization had received numerous requests for urgent assistance.

“Since yesterday afternoon, our agency has been conducting search-and-rescue operations,” Yusuf said Thursday.

3…………> Santa Trump Undercover: Iraq, Germany Troop Visits

 

 

President Trump accompanied by his wife Melania made his first visit to soldiers stationed in an unstable region, flying into Iraq on Boxing Day in an unannounced trip, after being criticized for not yet visiting overseas troops by his “Fake News” detractors.

The US Government remains partially shut down amid a funding stalemate over a border wall, a week after Mr. Trump stunned his national security advisers by announcing he would withdraw US troops from neighboring Syria where they have been fighting Islamic State (IS) militants.

The President traveled with first lady Melania Trump and their trip was shrouded in secrecy.

Air Force One flew overnight from Washington, landing at an air base west of Baghdad under the cover of darkness on Wednesday evening (local time).

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters aboard Air Force One that Iraq’s Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi accepted an invitation from Mr. Trump to visit the White House.

President Trump expressed his “eternal gratitude” for the work of US troops in Iraq, on an unannounced Christmas visit to meet service personnel at al-Asad air base west of Baghdad.

He spoke about his recent decision to withdraw US troops from Syria, saying “America shouldn’t be doing the fighting for every nation on earth”.

5…………> Somber Holidays: US Government Shutdown

 

“The anxiety level among federal employees is extremely high and on top of that, there is real anger that they are paying the personal price for someone else’s dysfunction,” US National TreasuryEmployees Union (NTEU) President Tony Reardon said in a statement, with about 80% of federal employees responding to a survey earlier this week admitting that they were “very concerned” about paying their rent and bills this month, and more than 85 percent said they were tightening their belts.

President Trump said the shutdown “could be a long stay,” with White House budget director Mick Mulvaney saying it could drag on to next year, pass the first working day after the start of the shutdown, and nine out of 15 cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies affected.

The shutdown, which started Friday midnight, resulted from a budgetary impasse between the White House and Congress over whether to fund the construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall, a promise of President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.

“Whatever it takes, we need a wall,” Mr. Trump said during his unannounced visit to U.S. troops in Iraq on Wednesday. “We need safety for our country.”

Democrats have violently pushed back, slapping the Trump proposal as an “inefficient, unnecessary and costly” solution to strengthening border security as well as “a political stunt” to galvanize his base.

“Fake New Media”  and DC alligator infested swamp pundits have said that it’s hard to predict when the political stalemate would end as Republicans and Democrats are still deeply divided over the border wall, which has also torn the public apart.

“The shutdown could easily go on for weeks and there will be no winners — only losers,” Mark Penn, former chief strategist on Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign, wrote in an op-ed carried by Fox News.

Israel traditionally views Hezbollah’s presence in Lebanon and Syria as a threat to its national security as the movement is backed by Iran, which is Israel’s key rival in the region.

This comes after the IDF said last week it destroyed attack tunnels discovered close to the Israeli-Lebanese border, following the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) confirming the existence of all tunnels that Israeli forces discovered along the border between Israel and Lebanon.

3…………>A Sicilian Christmas: Mt.Etna Earthquake

 

Residents of the Italian island of Sicily are keeping a close eye on Mount Etna, in an expectation of an ongoing eruption that triggered an earthquake on Wednesday in which 10 people were injured and several buildings damaged.

The quake struck in the early hours of the morning with a magnitude of 4.8 on the Richter scale, according to Italy’s seismology institute (INGV). It came after a series of some 1,000 tremors in the past few days, at least 60 of which topped a reading of 2.5.

Although the earthquake hit to the north of Catania, the largest city in eastern Sicily, no damage or injuries were reported there, but other towns experienced cracks opening in buildings, while a number of villagers fled their homes in panic. Two people were rescued from a collapsed building. (DW)

Christmas In Baltimore: A Rocket Launcher

 

Baltimore, a US city with more than 600,000 residents located 37 miles northwest of Washington DC, is America’s deadliest big city, with the number of homicides in the city surpassing 300 each of the last four years, including 343 in 2017.

Police collected 1,860 weapons as part of a three-day buyback operation aimed at getting illegal firearms off the streets, and city Mayor Catherine Pugh tweeted that one of the weapons was a rocket launcher, which was traded for $500.

Authorities have contacted the United States military and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in attempt to discover its origin.
