Manufacturing in the US is a lot worse than originally thought. 70% of manufacturing has been shipped overseas and we now import more than we export. This was by design by the central bankers. Bank Of America says that every-time the market declined the central banks stepped it and propped it up. The entire economy is run by the central bank it is not an open free economy or market. Al Greene pushes for impeachment, it fails. Trump announces that the US will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, will this spark the largest event in the middle east or is something else happening. The cabal flies bombers in the Korean peninsula during the drills with South Korea. Trump calls on Saudi Arabia to let in humanitarian aid to the Yemen people. Syria says that their country is all clear of the IS, small pockets remain but Syria controls their own country.

Current News – 12.06.2017
- It should upset you that virtually everything stocking the shelves of our major retailers seems to have been made somewhere else. As a nation, we are consuming far more wealth than we are producing, and that is a recipe for national economic suicide. This week we learned that imports from China hit an all-time record high in October, and that was one of the primary reasons why our trade deficit hit a staggering 48.7 billion dollars during that month. Year after year we buy far more stuff from the rest of the world than they buy from us, and this is systematically impoverishing us.
- Let me put this another way. The amount of money that leaves our country each month is far greater than the amount of money that comes into it. When you grasp this concept, it becomes easy to understand why major exporting nations such as China have become so wealthy, and why we are drowning in debt.
- Since China joined the WTO in 2001, the United States has lost more than 70,000 manufacturing facilities and millions of good paying manufacturing jobs. Formerly great manufacturing cities such as Detroit now resemble war zones,
- Our trade deficits are absolutely killing our long-term economic future, and the only way that we have been able to maintain our standard of living is by going on the greatest debt binge in human history.
- We have officially lost count of the number of times that Democrats have now attempted to pass a resolution to impeach President Trump, let alone, alleged sex abuser Congressman Al Green who brought today’s motion. In today’s case, even his own party’s leadership voted against it, calling the move premature. , in a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled the impeachment resolution from Green; four Democrats voted present.
, Maguire told at least two people that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, in coordination with a top official at the National Security Agency, authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
- Those who want to impeach Trump say his contacts (through Flynn and others) with high-level Russians, such as Russian Ambassador Kislyak, was treason … or at the very least an impeachable offense.
- Others – without any proof – say that the president-elect’s team contacting foreign leaders is normal.
- Who’s right?
- It is common and not improper for transition officials to meet with foreign officials.
- Jack Matlock, the 4-year U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1987-1991, at the time that the USSR fell, writes:
- . As one who spent a 35-year diplomatic career working to open up the Soviet Union and to make communication between our diplomats and ordinary citizens a normal practice, I find the attitude of much of our political establishment and of some of our once respected media outlets quite incomprehensible. What in the world is wrong with consulting a foreign embassy about ways to improve relations? Anyone who aspires to advise an American president should do just that.
- If you want to understand the policy of another country, you need to consult that country’s representatives. It is quite common for foreign diplomats to cultivate candidates and their staffs. That is part of their job. If Americans plan to advise the president on policy issues, they would be wise to maintain contact with the foreign embassy in question to understand that country’s attitude toward the issues involved.
Michael McFaul, the U.S. Ambassador to Russia under President Obama, also confirms that the Russian Ambassador’s contacts with U.S. officials under an incoming administration are not unusual, and that accusing the Russian Ambassador of being a “spymaster” flies in the face of reality.
Foreign Policy writes:
- Is it normal for presidential candidates to insert themselves into global events by dialing up heads of state? In fact, Obama did pretty much the same thing — multiple times, no less — as a candidate during the 2008 campaign.
- Obama, like Romney, embarked on a foreign trip as a candidate, meeting face-to-face with leaders such as Afghan President Hamid Karzai, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (headline: “Obama Talks Tough About Iran During Visit to Israel”). But he also placed several phone calls.
- The FBI agent who was taken off Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election due to politically biased texts had previously changed wording in former FBI Director James Comey’s memo that cleared Hillary Clinton of mishandling classified information.
- a former CIA paramilitary officer and member of the Trump transition team, John R. Maguire, reportedly revealed during a fund raising meeting for an intelligence gathering operation in Afghanistan, that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster “authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.”

- An American B-1B Lancer strategic bomber and F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets accompanied by South Korean military aircraft have conducted simulated bombing drills in the skies over South Korea amid rising tensions on the peninsula, Yonhap News Agency says.
- The maneuvers are part of the unprecedented joint air force Vigilant Ace 18 drills which kicked off Monday.
- In 1995, Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, requiring the movement of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The act said that Jerusalem should be undivided and be recognized as the capital of Israel. The legislation passed 93-5 in the Senate, and 374-37 in the House of Representatives. (link)
- .Israel is bracing for demonstrations in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem ahead of US President Donald Trump’s expected plan to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and to recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital.The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are preparing for violence after Hamas called for a “day of rage” in response to Trump’s controversial decision. The main demonstration is planned for Thursday afternoon at al-Manara Square in Ramallah. People from across the West Bank are expected to participate.
Foreign governments are already anticipating violence. The German Foreign Ministry updated its travel advice for Israel and the Palestinian territories on Wednesday, warning that “from December 6, 2017, there may be demonstrations in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Violent clashes cannot be ruled out.” The US State Department also issued a travel warning, urging government employees and their families not to visit Jerusalem’s Old City or the West Bank.
The Council of the League of Arab States released a statement calling the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital an act of “open aggression” against “the rights of the Palestinian people and all Muslims and Christians.”Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be a “red line” for Muslims and “a big blow to the conscience of humanity.” The leader of NATO ally Turkey warned that the US taking such a step would force Ankara to sever diplomatic ties with the Jewish state.Erdogan has called for an emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on December 13 to discuss the possibility of Jerusalem becoming Israel’s capital.Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has also blasted Washington’s decision to relocate the US embassy to Jerusalem as a display of incompetence.The Syrian government also weighed in on the planned move. “[The move] is the culmination of the crime of usurping Palestine and displacing the Palestinian people,” a Foreign Ministry official told state news agency SANA.
- President Donald Trump called on Saudi Arabia’s leadership on Wednesday to allow basic necessities to reach the people of Yemen immediately, the White House said.
- “I have directed officials in my administration to call the leadership of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to request that they completely allow food, fuel, water and medicine to reach the Yemeni people who desperately need it,” Trump said in a statement.
- The Russian General Staff has declared the liberation of Syria from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), stating that all territories previously under terrorist control were liberated in the final push by the Syrian Army.
- “All terrorist units of ISIS on Syrian soil have been destroyed, and the territory is liberated,”
- “Therefore, as of today, there’s no territory controlled by ISIS in Syria,” he added.
- “Naturally, there might be some spots of resistance, but the military work has been largely completed in the area and at the time. Completed with a full victory, I repeat, with a victory and defeat of the terrorists,” Russian leader said.
- The peace process, however, will be “a very big and lengthy job,” Putin cautioned. For this to happen though, the bloodshed in Syria must stop completely, he said. Securing the recent achievements and reinforcing the fragile de-escalation zones should be the first steps to that end, Russia’s president added.
