1…………> Putin To Trump: “We Are In Idlib”

 

Russian fighter jets attacked west of Idlib and north of Hama, bombing civilian residential areas in Jisr al-Shughur City; areas of Basanqul, Ghani, Innab, Sirmaniyah, west of Idlib; Zayzun area, north of Hama; as well as the Assad’s opposition’s frontlines.

Twenty attacks were carried out by three Russian warplanes, which took off from Hmeimim airbase. The attacks are continuing, with the number of casualties still unknown, and despite a stern warning by President  Trump.

He tweeted:

“President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!”

Responding to Trump’s tweet, Russian Presidential Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said it was “necessary to deal with the problem” in Idlib.

“The situation in Idlib continues to be a topic of special concern in Moscow, Damascus, Ankara, and Tehran.” He said terrorists in the region were sending drones to Russian military bases posing “a significant threat”, he added.

2…………> Churchill’s Bungles: A Century Later

 

The current Trump administration’s diplomatic skirmish with Turkey is reminiscent of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s “bungles” during World War I which resulted in the Ottoman Empire joining the war on the side of Imperial Germany, according to a U.S. expert.

Martin Sieff, who worked as a senior correspondent for United Press International and The Washington Times for 24 years and also appeared on CNN, NPR, Fox News and BBC as a commentator, made the remarks in an article published on the U.S.-based Strategic Culture Foundation’s website.

“Today, Washington’s reckless and abusive policies towards Turkey are repeating the catastrophic bungles that Churchill inflicted more than a century ago. Repeating Churchill’s Bungles: Will US Drive Turkey into Joining the Shanghai Pact?” he wondered.

3…………> Applied Global Warming: Jebi Pounds Japan

 

Six people died, more than 90 injured and a 2,591-tonne tanker crashed into a bridge connecting an airport to the mainland as high winds and heavy rain soaked the Japanese cities of Kobe and Osaka and surrounding areas, when the powerful typhoon Jeb made landfall on the mainland.

The strongest typhoon to hit Japan since 1993, Typhoon Jebi was heading north across a swath of Japan’s main island of Honshu towards the Sea of Japan with sustained winds of 110 miles per hour with gusts to 140 miles per hour, according to Japan Meteorological Agency.

4…………> Hoarding Gold,Dumping Dollars: India

 

Due to the relentless US sanctions levied on countries around the world, and corresponding unwillingness to hold US dollar nominated securities due to fears of Forex market interventions, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), a major member of the BRICK Block purchased 8.46 metric tons of gold during the last fiscal year (April 2017 to March 2018).

In its annual report, the RBI revealed that it had 566.23 metric tons of gold as of June 30, 2018, compared to 557.77 metric tons in June 30, 2017, indicating that the bank had purchased gold for the first time since 2009 when it had acquired 200 metric tons of the precious metal following America’s sub-prime crisis.

“Diversification of India’s Foreign Currency Assets continued during the year [2017-18] with attention being ascribed to risk management, including cybersecurity risk. The gold portfolio has also been activated,” the report added.

5…………> Rio Museum Reduced To Ashes: Fire

 

The National Museum of Brazil, a cherished historical repository build in 1818 that lacked a sprinkler system and had suffered years of financial neglect, was destroyed by fire, sparking angry protests on the streets of Rio de Janeiro as police in riot gear shot tear gas into an angry crowd that tried to enter the site,

” The rumbling tensions reflect anger over the destruction  of the much-loved yet old museum, which suffered from declining federal funding. The museum’s decline did not happen overnight,” said Renato Rodriguez Cabral, a teacher in the geology and paleontology department.

“This was a tragedy foretold. Successive governments would not provide funds; they would not invest in infrastructure.”

1…………> The “Chanel Boys”: Counterfeit Goods

 

33 individuals were charged Thursday following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) into a scheme to illegally bring into the United States millions of dollars of Chinese-manufactured goods by smuggling them through ports of entry on the East and West Coasts. One defendant is also charged with unlawful procurement of naturalization.

The charges include conspiracy to traffic, and trafficking, in counterfeit goods; conspiracy to smuggle, and smuggling, fake products into the United States; money laundering conspiracy; immigration fraud and unlawful procurement of naturalization.

Also, the government restrained nine real properties in Queens, Staten Island, and Brooklyn, New York belonging to the defendants.

“This investigation exposed the global nature of intellectual property crimes, allegedly being executed by those arrested today. Counterfeit goods manufactured and smuggled from China with a suggested value close to half a billion dollars, were intended to make its way into U.S. markets and the hands of unsuspecting consumers,” said HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Melendez.

“This investigation should be a crystal clear message that counterfeiting and intellectual property rights violations are anything but a victimless crime as it harms legitimate businesses, consumers, and governments.”

According to the court filings, the defendants played various roles in the trafficking of counterfeit goods manufactured in China, brought by ocean-going ships to the United States in 40-foot shipping containers, smuggled through ports of entry disguised as legitimate imports and distributed throughout the country. The counterfeit goods included items such as fake Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch handbags, Michael Kors wallets, Hermes belts and Chanel perfume.

2…………> “High On Explosives & Poisons”: ISIS “Aficionado”

 

Marlon Hicks, 31, of Crown Point, Indiana, was sentenced to 15 years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing information regarding the manufacture and use of explosives, with the intent that the information is used for and in furtherance of a crime of violence.

“The Department of Justice is committed to investigating and prosecuting terrorist threats against our homeland,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.

“The defendant plotted to conduct an attack on U.S. soil and, with today’s sentence, he is being held accountable for his actions. I applaud the efforts of the agents and prosecutors to achieve this successful outcome. Their work will ensure that the actions of the defendant, inspired by an evil, will serve only as a cautionary tale for other would-be terrorists.”

According to the documents, in this case, Hicks rapidly transformed from a vocal online supporter of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, to someone planning a terrorist act.

3…………> Mr.Xi FOREX Hedge: Anti-Trump Medicine

 

President Trump has accused China of manipulating its currency to combat US tariffs, an accusation resembling claims Mr. Trump made during his 2016 campaign as the two countries prepare to meet in Washington to discuss the ongoing trade fight. In July, the two countries imposed the first round of tit-for-tat tariffs, on trade worth $34bn, with plans on the drawing board to impose import duties on a further $16bn .

The administration is also preparing additional tariffs on $200bn worth of Chinese goods, which are the subject of hearings in Washington this week.

“I think China’s manipulating their currency, absolutely,” Mr. Trump told Reuters.

Mr. Trump has criticized the higher cost of borrowing, fearing that will slow the economy.

“I’m not thrilled with [Fed] raising of interest rates, no. I’m not thrilled,” he said, repeating a criticism which he has made before.

Stocks up 89 at 25759, DJ futures +9, attempt to stage a short covering rally continuing due to anti-tariff talks with China.

Gold up to 1200.1 and USD/CHF down 0.99 due to President Trump setting tariffs on Chinese products. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch sell stop at 25,550.
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.

1…………> NY Phone Scam: Losses In The Millions

 

Twelve individuals were arrested for involvement in a nationwide fraud conspiracy from 2014 to the present: Isaac Concepcion Aquino, a/k/a “Kaka,” Mario Diaz, a/k/a “Memin,” Tomas Guillen, a/k/a “Diddy,” Ronnie De Leon, Jose Argelis Diaz, Joel Pena, Jhonatan Diaz, a/k/a “Nino,” Eddy Morrobel, Ruddy Sanchez, Michael Roque, Rayniel Robles, and Joandra Tejada Gonzalez. In connection with the fraud, the defendants and their associates improperly accessed more than 3,300 customers’ cellphone accounts, fraudulently obtained more than 1,200 cellphones, and caused losses exceeding $1 million.

“Those arrested today were allegedly part of a fraud network operating in New York, the Dominican Republic, and the Darknet. Their activities left a trail of unsuspecting victims across the United States and cost businesses significant losses. They traveled to 30 states to obtain cellphones that were later sold through fencing operations in the Bronx,” said Angel M. Melendez, special agent in charge of HSI New York.

2…………> Tariffs On Turkey: Trump

 

In continuation of the war our 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama promulgated on the sovereign government of Turkey, entering into a criminal collusion with the FETO terrorists in the attempted assassination of President Erdogan, Mr.Trump has doubled US tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum, leading to the precipitous fall of the Turkish lira, further pushing the most strategic NATO partner in the open arms of Comrade Putin.

In a tweet, Mr. Trump said the currency was weak against “our firm dollar,” adding that “US relations with Turkey are not good at this time.”

Turkish President Erdogan said in a speech that the drop was part of a “campaign” led by foreign powers as the currency lost 20% in the past 24 hours, calling on citizens to exchange foreign currency and gold for lira in the  “economic war” unleashed on his country.

A New Zealand man has pleaded guilty after 219 secretly obtained recordings of 34 women in the shower were made by hiding cameras in shampoo bottles, then posted on an online porn site.

He said it was “done it for the thrill and risk of being caught,” and pleaded guilty to 51 charges at Hastings Local Court.

The most serious of the charges carry a 14-year maximum jail term.

4…………> Locking Horns: US vs. China

 

In continuation of a US Navy refusal to comply with self-imposed China South China Sea “sovereignty map”, a P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance plane flying over the contested Spratly Islands refused to alter its flight course after receiving warnings from the People’s Liberation Army telling it to leave the area at once.

The US spy plane with a CNN reporter on board flying at 16,500 feet above sea level over Chinese garrisons, ignored repeated messages from the PLA urging the US plane to “leave immediately and keep far off to avoid any misunderstanding.”

Each time, the US Navy responded with the prepared line:

“I am a sovereign immune United States naval aircraft conducting lawful military activities beyond the national airspace of any coastal state. In exercising these rights guaranteed by international law, I am operating with due regard for the rights and duties of all states.”

1…………> GOP Establishment vs Trump: On Crash Course

 

The devoted soldier of the New World Disorder and its beating heart, the Council of Foreign Relations(CFR), House Speaker Paul “Romney Jr.” Ryan slammed  President Trump’s tariffs, alleging that have triggered trade wars with some of the U.S.’s largest trading partners, including close allies: i.e. his bosses the Koch Brothers, whose net worth doubled during the reign of our beloved 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama.

Mr. Trump disagreed,  claiming earlier in the day that tariffs “are the greatest!” amid the ongoing trade disputes.

“Countries that have treated us unfairly on trade for years are all coming to Washington to negotiate,” Trump said on Twitter. “Tariffs are the greatest! Either a country which has treated the United States unfairly on Trade negotiates a fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs. It’s as simple as that – and everybody’s talking!”

2…………> Applied Global Warming: Greece Fires

 

Wildfires sweeping through a Greek resort town have killed at least 74 people, officials say, injuring at least 187 people, including 23 children, have been injured in the fires, forcing people to run into the sea to avoid being burned to death while Greece has called for assistance from neighbouring countries and the EU.

Emergency crews found 26 victims, some of them children, lying close together in a field just 30 metres from the sea near Mati in eastern Greece.

3…………> Dementia Predictor: A Simple Eye Test

 

A simple eye test carried out by opticians could help predict who is at risk of developing dementia, when researchers discovered that people with thinner retinas are more likely to have problems with memory and reasoning in a sample of 32,000 people whose retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) was measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT).

Memory loss, difficulty with carrying out familiar tasks and other types of cognitive decline can be early symptoms of dementia.

4…………> Collecting The Cash: Mr.Xi Goes To Africa

 

While President Trump is being bombarded by hordes of moronic “Russia collusion”, “Deep State” clowns,  South Africa rolled out the red carpet for very wise Chinese President Mr.Xi Jinping as he started his third state visit to the “rainbow nation” with the aim of boosting bilateral friendly relations and cooperation.

Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, were greeted by high-ranking South African government officials at the airport of a country that is a member of the BRICK block, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa in particular that have forged an alliance against the illegal power of the Central Banks that are using the Forex markets as a tool of controlling the world and taking money out of other people’s pockets.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and President Xi will hold talks in Pretoria to draw a new blueprint for further developing bilateral relations, and attend celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of their countries’ diplomatic relations.

A “mini-robot sandwich on a rye bun with everything but onions” to be available soon in your favored fast food joint? Researchers at U.S. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created the world’s smallest robots to be used for medical or industrial applications monitoring systems otherwise impossible to access.

 The journal Nature Nanotechnology announced that the tiny robots about the size of a human egg cell are consisting of microelectronic circuits made of two-dimensional materials, piggybacking on minuscule particles called colloids.

The self-powered cell-size robots don’t need any external power source or even internal batteries and get a charge of electricity from a photodiode to power their computation and memory circuits.

1…………> Aussie, US In Danger: China Bubble Burst 

 

The Chinese yuan has just suffered its steepest monthly decline on record, down more than 20% since the recent peak in late January, now clearly in a now in bear territory, having lost 1.5% against the US dollar last week and is down about 3% over the past two weeks.

A weaker Chinese currency would soften the blows of higher US tariffs. 

The US-China trade conflict will ratchet up another notch this week as rhetoric transitions to action and the US imposes a 25% tariff on a narrow $US34 billion worth of imports, the threat targeting another $540 billion worth of goods should China retaliate is hanging over the markets. 

“A statement from the PBOC late on Thursday pledging [unspecified] support for the economy was a further step and it may have helped the yuan and Shanghai equities recover a little [on Friday],” Capital Economics chief Asian economist Mark Williams said. 


“If falls resume next week, more forceful intervention is likely, including foreign exchange sales and equity purchases by the ‘national team'”.

2…………> Child Soldiers: Islamic Sheikdom Of France

 

“They recruited and trained orphans, and then you also have the wives of ISIS [Daesh] militants whose children have been indoctrinated with the group’s ideology and who have been taught to hate the US-led coalition and Europe,” said the French jihadist Jonathan Geffroy who was captured by the Free Syrian Army as he tried to flee the war-torn country with his wife and two children. 

He was quoted by Le Monde as saying that the terrorist group planned to use children in order “to carry out suicide missions” in Europe, having been in the know of “future external operations” promulgated “by children who grew up in the area and who, after adolescence, will be sent to the West, to Europe.” 


The child soldier plan is a brainchild of the Clain brothers, the highest-ranking French members of Daesh, who engineered the deadly November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. 

 

 

 

3…………> “I Better Shop Around”: Trump’s Nafta Deal

 

“NAFTA, I could sign it tomorrow, but I’m not happy with it. I want to make it fairer, okay? I want to wait until after the election. You’re going to have an election. I think it’ll be very interesting. I think it’s going to be fine,” President Trump said about the current political reality.

He wants to wait until after the midterm elections in November to sign a new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico.

Calling NAFTA as “the worst deal ever” during his campaign and presidency, he requested the agreement to be renegotiated in order to make it “fair” for his country, with the aim of reducing the U.S. trade deficit.

However, Trump imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports of the U.S. in March has strained relations between the three countries.

Canada responded to the U.S. on Friday by imposing $12.6 billion in retaliatory tariffs against American products that will take effect on Sunday.

5…………> Mexico vs The US: Border Wars 

 

Mexico’s richest man and entrepreneur Carlos Slim did not take President  Trump’s ” Make America Great” plan seriously when took office in Washington:

 “Even for building a wall you need Mexican workers,” he quipped when he heard the specifics of Mr.Trump border visions.

This careless attitude has vanished since, as President Trump has relentlessly humiliated the US’s southern neighbor not just during his campaign, but also during his first year in office.

“Even before his victory, Trump accused Mexico of sending criminals, rapists and drug dealers to the US, and he has stuck with this position,” Washington-based Mexican journalist Gregorio Meraz tells DW.

“His approval ratings went down after the separation of children and parents at the border,” Meraz says. “But he did it to put the Democrats under pressure so they would agree to tighter immigration laws and approve 25 billion dollars for the border wall.”

1…………> Breakfast In Singapore: Trump vs Comrade Un

 

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un [aka Comrade Un] and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!

7:37 AM – May 10, 2018

76K people are talking about this

President’s announcement was preceded by North Korea’s released three American prisoners a day before, a move greeted by the US and the world with a sigh of relief and hope that the “nuke war” saber rattling on the Korean peninsula may finally be coming to an end.

“I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful,” Trump said at the time. “My proudest achievement will be — this is part of it — when we denuclearize that entire peninsula.”

Seoul and Pyongyang have yet to formally end the Korean war that ended in 1953.

2…………> The Pin Blunder: $29,300 Bun

 

Liuzhu He, a manager of the steamed bun shop in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, 

received a wrong amount of payment of 140,000 yuan ($29,300) for two steamed buns after an absent-minded customer entered his PIN rather than the amount due on e-payment platform Alipay.

Since the consumer did not return to correct the transaction and collect his money, Mr. He contacted the local media and the police to help identify the customer, since no one came back to collect the money.


A customer named Hongwei Han apparently contacted local media and the police, and then the whole riddle came apart at the seems:

“I didn’t receive any text notifications, I really didn’t realize. Yesterday I received a call from an Alipay customer service officer, and they said there was something wrong with my balance,” he admitted.

“This is a very exciting event and to our knowledge, it is the largest wave ever recorded in the southern hemisphere,” MetOcean Solutions senior oceanographer Dr. Tom Durrant said about an enormous 78-foot ocean wave recorded by a solar-powered buoy moored near New Zealand’s Campbell Island. 


“[This] storm is the perfect example of waves generated by the easterly passage of a deep low-pressure system with associated wind speeds exceeding 65 knots. Such storms are frequent and can occur at any time of the year, which differs from the high-latitude northern hemisphere storms that only occur in winter,” he said, adding that the waves may reach California coast in about a week.

Syria’s dictator Mr. Assad and his Iranian “friends” got a “kick in the pans” after the Israeli army published photographs and maps showing four targeted sites linked to Iranian intelligence in Syria’s southern Tel al-Qulayb, Tal Ghurba, Tel Miqdad and Tel Nabi Yusha areas,

“Targets also included sites linked to Iranian-backed militias near Syria’s southern border, including observation and intelligence-gathering posts,” an Israeli army source as said, describing the bombing as  “[This was] the largest [Israeli] operation [code named “House of Cards”] against Syria since 1974.”

What will the Shia brethren of our beloved 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama do now, when the sanctions are back, the “crooked Iran deal” was shot down, there is nobody sending planes full with lovely, freshly printed US dollars, and Mr. Trump in the White House? Stand by.

5…………> Currency Trade Fraud: Major Banks

 

Bibi1581.com has been saying for years that the greatest threat to our planet is not terrorism, global warming or the drug cartels, but the criminal consortium of Central Banks and their networks that have de-facto license to steal as evident by the indictments below:

A federal grand jury returned an indictment againsAkshay Aiyer, a former currency trader at a major U.S. bank, for conspiring to fix prices and rig bids and offers in Central and Eastern European, Middle Eastern, and African (CEEMEA) currencies, which were generally traded against the U.S. dollar and the euro.

The Department of Justice also charged six major banks in the ongoing investigation into antitrust and fraud crimes in the FX market. On May 20, 2015, Citicorp, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Barclays PLC, and The Royal Bank of Scotland PLC pleaded guilty at the parent level and agreed to pay, collectively, more than $2.5 billion in criminal fines for their participation in an antitrust conspiracy to manipulate the price of the euro-U.S dollar currency pair. Additionally, UBS AG pleaded guilty to manipulating the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and other benchmark interest rates and agreed to pay a $203 million criminal penalty after breaching it’s December 2012 non-prosecution agreement resolving the LIBOR investigation. On January 25, 2018, BNP Paribas USA, Inc., the former employer of Jason Katz, pleaded guilty to violating the Sherman Act based on its participation in a CEEMEA-related conspiracy and agreed to pay a $90 million fine. 

“As today’s indictment demonstrates, the Antitrust Division remains committed to holding individuals accountable for anticompetitive conduct that violates the integrity of global financial markets,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division.

1…………> Remove “Dead Wood”: Chicago PD

“We’re in the middle of a serious crime fight, and we’re finally making real progress, so I don’t know how you can turn over crime strategy and every policing decision to some group of people who have absolutely no law enforcement experience,” Chicago’s police superintendent Eddie Johnson blasted efforts for greater civilian oversight of the department, citing “real progress” in fighting crime, just hours after at least eight people were reportedly wounded in overnight shootings, and short time later two men were slain on the city’s South Side of the “windy city”.

Is he the same politically correct Rahm Emanuel stooge who presided over the city that cuddled Mexican and US drug dealers, leading to nearly 4000 deaths during the infamous reign of our beloved 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama.

2…………>Activist Judges: Separation Of Powers

Attorney General Speech in Front of the Federalist Society

Thank you, Professor Barnett, for that kind introduction, and thank you for your leadership at the Center for the Constitution.

I want to express my gratitude once again to the Federalist Society. For 35 years the Federalist Society has been an eloquent voice—perhaps the most eloquent voice—in defence of the rule of law.

That is an idea that always deserves—and always needs—defending.

Our Founders set up a marvellous system in which Congress writes our laws, the Executive Branch carries out our laws, and the Judiciary applies those laws to cases and controversies.

But this group knows well that there is always a serious risk that some judges will fail to respect our representatives in Congress and the Executive Branch and, instead, claim the power to set policy— power courts do not have.

For example, we recently had a judge tell one of our fine lawyers openly in court that “you can’t come into court to espouse a position that is so heartless.” Not illegal. Not unlawful. Heartless.

When I said publicly that it is not a judge’s job to decide what is “heartless,” –that it’s the job of the American people and its representatives to establish what the law is—this same judge then said that I “seem to think the courts cannot have an opinion.”

That’s wrong. Judges should issue opinions—legal opinions that pertain to the legal questions of the case, not to politics or policy or personal sentiment.

As Attorney General of the United States, I am shocked by the actions of certain judges who fail to respect the constitutional responsibilities of the executive and legislative branches. These branches are coequal and the courts are not superior.

Although the courts are empowered to decide specific cases and controversies, they do not have the final word on every policy dispute. On matters of policy, the branches that are directly accountable to the people must be given proper respect.

The new vehicle used by activist judges to direct executive policy is the issuing of nationwide injunctions—orders that block the entire United States government from enforcing an executive branch policy or executing a statute. And not just in one district, but nationwide. Not just to parties before the court, but against everyone, everywhere.

Courts have been calling them nationwide injunctions, but it would be just as fitting to call them non-party injunctions or limitless injunctions—since they bind all of America and grant relief to those who are not parties to the case. And they are usually preliminary injunctions, so they block important government actions before a trial.

Scholars have not found a single example of any judge issuing this type of extreme remedy in the first 175 years of the Republic. But President Trump has been hit with 22 in just over one year in office—on issues like DACA, the travel order, sanctuary cities, and the service of transgender people in the military.

While you may have heard differently, we believe that each of these executive actions is justified under the lawful powers of the chief executive. We are eager to defend these actions before the Supreme Court and are confident of a positive result.

In fact, the Supreme Court has already issued three extraordinary opinions by which they essentially reversed the vast majority of injunctions on the travel matter and granted an extraordinary writ of mandamus to stop a district court judge’s extreme discovery order.

It’s hard enough to manage this colossal government under the laws passed by Congress, much less facing a host of nationwide injunctions imposed by just one of 600 district judges—injunctions that result in great cost and turmoil.

It took more than 200 years for the first 22 nationwide injunctions to be issued. Now we’ve had 22 in just over one year. Clearly, something has changed.

It’s not as though there weren’t legal controversies before 1963. There were many. They were hotly contested. But nobody issued a nationwide, limitless injunction.

In 1897, in Scott v. Donald, for example, the Supreme Court found a law unconstitutional and even recognized that many others besides the plaintiff might be entitled to relief. But the Court issued an injunction that only prevented application of the law to the plaintiff.

During the New Deal controversies, courts concluded that one new tax was unconstitutional more than 1,600 times.

They issued more than 1,600 injunctions. But each of those injunctions applied only to the plaintiff, and the government collected the tax in good faith from more than 71,000 other taxpayers before the Supreme Court later held it unconstitutional.

In truth, this is a question of raw power—of who gets to decide the policy questions facing America: our elected representatives, our elected president or unelected lifetime-appointed federal judges.

Today, in effect, single district court judges are going beyond proper adjudicative bounds and making themselves super-legislators for the entire United States. 


That means that each of the more than 600 federal district judges in the United States can enjoin a law or regulation throughout the country—regardless of whether the other 599 disagree.

These limitless injunctions are contrary to the structure of our government, to the role of our judiciary, and they hamper or even block the proper functioning of our government—and they importantly and dramatically undermine the power of the people to control their government.

Let me share some concerns.

First of all, these nationwide injunctions encourage forum shopping. There is a reason why so many lawsuits have been filed against the Trump Administration in California and Hawaii, and why others were filed against the Obama Administration in Texas.

Litigants are looking for the most favourable forum in which to advance their goal of binding the whole nation—virtually always to secure a policy outcome that could never win at the ballot box or in the legislature.

Second, limitless injunctions cut off the discussion among lower courts.

We know that the first court to rule on an issue isn’t always right. Our federal judicial system is set up so that district courts in different parts of the country can consider issues at the same time. Those issues may then be appealed to one of the twelve circuit courts. When those circuit courts disagree, then the Supreme Court can take up the case.

Non-party injunctions short-circuit our system. The federal government is forced to appeal the first nationwide injunction, possibly all the way to the Supreme Court—which can take 18 months or longer. The effect is to cut off opportunities for other courts to weigh in.

And often these are preliminary injunctions, meaning a full case record has not been developed before the vast scope of the injunction directs the policy of the government.

Third, when a single district judge issues a nationwide injunction while similar cases are pending elsewhere, the first ruling by the first district judge somehow becomes authoritative while contrary rulings by equally authoritative district judges have no effect.

A telling example of this is the litigation over the rescission of the DACA policy.

Parties have sued in several courts across the country, meaning that several judges are considering the issue and will issue rulings that should be binding on the plaintiffs in those cases only.

Yet a federal judge in San Francisco and a federal judge in New York both felt they had the authority to issue nationwide injunctions, granting relief to others who were not parties to the case.

Then, just this week, a federal judge in Maryland held that the DACA rescission was lawful. So the plaintiffs in that Maryland case lost—but by the rulings of the San Francisco and New York judges, they obtained relief anyway.

Fourth, limitless injunctions circumvent the class certification process required by statute and by Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. That’s because they provide the benefits of class certification without the procedural protections.

Fifth, limitless injunctions create an absurd situation in which a plaintiff only needs to win once to stop a national law or policy—but the government needs to win every time to carry out its policies. That makes governing all but impossible.

My predecessor, Attorney General Robert Jackson faced a similar problem. In 1937, he lamented that “no administration can halt its policies…to seek the judiciaries’ views.

The government cannot learn the judge’s views until after the law is passed and then only after a lapse of years…Moreover, the judicial contribution is always negative. It may tell what cannot be done…but it never tells what can be done. Government by litigation has destroyed effective enforcement of public policy.”

He didn’t know how good he had it.

The Department of Justice has been fighting the unprecedented number of limitless injunctions in the courts, and we are well aware of what is at stake.

For example, last year, I made the common sense decision that our state and local law enforcement grants should go to states and cities that actually cooperate with federal law enforcement, including the enforcement of the immigration laws.

To receive this grant money, jurisdictions need to certify their compliance with the federal law barring restrictions on communications between state and local agencies and the Department of Homeland Security.

They have to allow our ICE agents access to detention facilities to meet with aliens and inquire into his or her right to remain in the United States.

And third, they have to provide at least 48 hours advance notice to ICE before releasing an alien if ICE has asked for notice. These are small but important requests for cooperation.

This allows ICE to know about aliens who are arrested and can decide whether to take custody of them. These are aliens who have committed crimes or are suspected of having committed crimes. They are serious enough criminals that the local authorities have arrested them.

And yet some cities think only their law enforcement interests deserve vindication, not those of the federal government. Why, then, should the federal government give grants to these cities?

Well, unsurprisingly, several of these sanctuary cities have sued us. These cities want federal funding—but they don’t want the federal law or to comply with the most reasonable cooperation requirements.

Sure enough, the first city to the courthouse—Chicago—found a local district judge who agreed with its claims. We disagree with the merits of that ruling, and we think we will ultimately prevail on this legal question.

Normally, this would be a discrete error affecting one city’s grant, and we would correct it on appeal in due course. But instead of issuing an injunction for the city, the judge enjoined the federal government from imposing these conditions on any state or city across

What possible interest does Chicago have in this sweeping relief? Chicago’s only plausible interest—its own grant money—would have been fully and completely vindicated by an injunction applying only to Chicago.

Meanwhile, other judges are considering this question.

A judge in San Francisco recently denied a preliminary injunction to that city, but it doesn’t matter because the judge in Chicago decided to grant relief to every city.

By not acting as a district court of limited jurisdiction, this judge in Chicago has halted the grant process for the entire country and has created the need for an expedited appeal in the Seventh Circuit to correct this overreach.

The increasing frequency of limitless injunctions is simply unsustainable, and the ever-more extreme nature of these injunctions is only making it more obvious just how unconstitutional they are.

The Supreme Court has not yet issued a definitive ruling on the merits of nationwide injunctions. So far, when the Court has had relevant cases before them, it has resolved them on other grounds.

But we are hopeful that the Supreme Court will soon send a clear message to the lower courts that injunctions ought to be limited to the parties of the case.

The scope of relief is at issue in a number of high profile cases right now. We will soon be arguing the merits of the President’s travel ban, and we have asked for a review of this aspect of the case, as well.

This is not a political or a partisan issue. It is a constitutional issue and a rule of law issue.

This has been a problem for administrations of both parties. Until President Trump, the President with the most limitless injunctions was President Obama, and President Clinton was in second place.

But the Department of Justice—under Democratic and Republican administrations alike—has been consistent over these past several decades that nationwide injunctions gravely threaten the rule of law.

They threaten the proper respect for the separation of powers, and indeed the very functioning of the other two branches of the federal government.

The American people vote for those other two branches of government. They want their votes to count. They want their voices heard. The political branches need to be able to act.

This is my message: We hope the Supreme Court will resolve this issue.

There can be no question that courts should put an end to nationwide injunctions and keep activists on both sides of the aisle from paralyzing the federal government.

In order for our system to function, the Court must end government-by-litigation. I am hopeful that soon they will, and that—with your help—we will restore the rule of law in this country.

Thank you.

3…………> Trump On The attack: PA

While President Trump was speaking at a campaign rally in Moon Township, Pa., in a show of support for Rick Saccone, who faces a tough special congressional election outside of Pittsburgh, he urged support for the GOP hopeful and said that the Democrat Conor Lamb, was likely to vote the party line despite efforts to distance himself from the Pelosi/Schumer liberals .

Mr Trump did not miss the chance to slam NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd, recalling that, “It’s 1999, I’m on ‘Meet the Press,’ a show now headed by sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd,” Trump said. “He’s a sleeping son of a b—-, I’ll tell you.” 


Then the President brilliantly concluded that CNN coverage of his meeting with Comrade Un was in his words, “Fake as hell, CNN. The worst. So fake.”

4…………> Tariff Wars: Friend & Foes 

“There are no winners in a trade war, and it would bring disaster to our two countries as well as the rest of the world. China does not wish to fight a trade war, nor will China initiate a trade war, but we can handle any challenge and will resolutely defend the interests of our country and our people,” Commerce Minister Zhong said, echoing a statement by Wang Hejun, a ministry official, warning that the tariffs “will surely have a serious impact on the normal international order”.


President Trump’s announcement that the US will impose a 25% tariff on steel and 10% on aluminium imports while granting Australia, Mexico and Canada  exemptions had divided the world into two camps, friend and foes, a clear and present danger to the globalist “New World Disorder” promulgated by past two US administrations, a prelude to a Forex war and currency devaluations.

The European Union and Japan urged the US to grant them exemptions from metal import tariffs, as the US has promised to not impose the tariffs on “our ally, the great nation of Australia”.

5…………> Trump On The Road: Slogan 

Despite 2020 election being two years in the future, President Trump is already using the “Make America Great” again slogan with an exclamation mark, a sure sign that he envisions another four years in the White House.
