That’s not the first time the government of Israel has surprisingly popped up during the Russia probe, investigations into President Donald Trump and his associates and White House policy on a number of issues. It should be noted that whatever Israel’s role has been in propping up Donald Trump, it’s fairly shocking, given that the Trump campaign was arguably propelled by white nationalists and avowed anti-Semites.
Prosecutors say he collaborated with an Israeli official to spread the story that Tymoshenko was allied with anti-Semitic causes to make the administration believe “the Jewish community will take this out on Obama on electionday if he does nothing.”
“I have someone pushing it on the NY Post. Bada bing bada boom,” Manafort wrote in an email to one his employees in his consulting firm, identified as Person D1 in the court documents.
When it comes to the state of the nation at home, anyone who believes America is a classless society need only spend half an hour walking around Hollywood, acknowledged epicentre of the American Dream, to realise how wrong they are. For not only will they be assured that there is no society more defined by class than US society, they will be left in little doubt that every minute of a every day a fierce class war is raging with up to now only one side taking all the punches and doing all the bleeding.
Not only in Hollywood but all across America the abandonment of the poor, downtrodden and sick to their fate has and continues to be so brutal that its human consequences given new meaning to the words ‘wretched of the earth’. And this wretched constituency of millions — lacking healthcare, decent housing, jobs, and hope — hardly saw their fortunes improve under Obama, despite the soaring rhetoric about hope and change, etc.
(12.12.2016) we draw on decades of senior-level experience – with emphasis on cyber-intelligence and security – to cut through uninformed, largely partisan fog. Far from hiding behind anonymity, we are proud to speak out with the hope of gaining an audience appropriate to what we merit – given our long labors in government and other areas of technology. And corny though it may sound these days, our ethos as intelligence professionals remains, simply, to tell it like it is – without fear or favor.
We have gone through the various claims about hacking. For us, it is child’s play to dismiss them. The email disclosures in question are the result of a leak, not a hack.
(16.12.2016) “Earlier this week, I met separately with (Director) FBI James Comey and DNI Jim Clapper, and there is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature, and intent of Russian interference in our presidential election,” Brennan wrote, U.S. intelligence sources confirmed. “The three of us also agree that our organizations, along with others, need to focus on completing the thorough review of this issue that has been directed by President Obama and which is being led by the DNI.”
(9.12.2016) “See, the problem with hacking is that if they’re able to disrupt elections, then it’s a national security issue, obviously,” McCain told the Post.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, who’s close with McCain, told CNN earlier this week that he thinks Russia “did interfere with our elections.”
“It’s pretty clear to me that Wikileaks was designed to hurt [Democratic presidential nominee Hillary] Clinton and it could be us tomorrow,” Graham said. “I’m going after Russia in every way you can go after Russia.”
(24.7.2016) The DNC’s vice chair, longtime party official Donna Brazile, would serve as interim chair, the DNC said. CNN’s Jeff Zelany said that it took a call from President Obama for Wasserman Schultz to agree to resign. Obama’s statement, released after Wasserman Schultz’, was supportive of her work for the party.
(18.8.2011) As Obama issued his statement, the leaders of France, Germany and Britain joined him in calling on Assad “to face the reality of the complete rejection of his regime by the Syrian people and to step aside.”
Obama had spoken to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron over the past two weeks to discuss calling for Assad’s resignation and to coordinate steps on sanctions.
(27.2.2011) Obama’s remarks came in a call on Saturday to Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, sharpening US rhetoric after days of deadly violence – and criticism that Washington was slow to respond.
„When a leader’s only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now,“ the White House said in a statement, summarising their telephone conversation.
Drei Monate vor den wichtigen Zwischenwahlen (midterm elections) in den USA hat sich Ex-Präsident Barack Obama in den Wahlkampf eingeschaltet. Der Demokrat erklärte heute seine Unterstützung für zahlreiche Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten seiner Partei. Er sei zuversichtlich, dass sie die USA stärken und dazu beitragen könnten, das Ansehen des Landes in der Welt zu reparieren, hieß es in einer Mitteilung.
(19.7.2018) The CIA had a top secret informant close to Vladimir Putin who confirmed the Russian president’s personal involvement in hacking the 2016 US election, it has been claimed.
According to the New York Times the source was giving information to the CIA during the Obama administration.
The information, and the source, were reportedly considered so sensitive that John Brennan, the CIA director at the time, gave details to Mr Obama in an envelope, separate from the daily presidential intelligence briefing that is delivered in the Oval Office, the New York Times reported.
(11.7.2018) Third, Trump could simply decide to call it quits. Where Trump differs from Bush and Obama is that he never had any real enthusiasm for the Afghan campaign. He is also somewhat less vulnerable to the political costs of withdrawal because he made an opposition to prolonged nation-building missions a central plank of his campaign.
The Middle East Forum has discovered that the Obama administration approved a grant of $200,000 of taxpayer money to an al-Qaeda affiliate in Sudan — a decade after the U.S. Treasury designated it as a terrorist-financing organization. More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization.
(25. Juli) The US Agency for International Development (USAID) gave $200,000 to the Khartoum-based Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), a designated global terror entity placed on the US sanctions list over its financial support for Osama Bin Laden and other terrorist groups including Hamas.
(13.6.2018) Donald Trump wird am 3. November 2020 wieder zum Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika gewählt werden. Dem folgt die Erosion der „Demokratischen Partei“ und die Gründung einer neuen Partei.
Die Prognose im Einzelnen, mit verschiedenen Szenarien bei immer gleichem Ergebnis:
And the former president Jimmy Carter, at 93 years old, is well and truly into his retirement.
Axios, which boils down news and analysis into concise takes, explains why this matters: “A meeting with Obama is an easy way for 2020 contenders to gain legitimacy and presidential wisdom — and, most importantly, a foothold with the man still largely considered to be the Democratic Party’s figurehead.”
(9.3.2018) Der ehemalige US-Präsident Barack Obama befindet sich laut einem Bericht der New York Times in fortgeschrittenen Verhandlungen mit Netflix über eine eigene Show. Eine solche Serie könnte ihm über den weltgrößten Streamingdienst und dessen 118 Millionen Abonnenten eine globale Plattform verschaffen, berichtete die Zeitung in der Nacht zum Freitag.
