    Why would a country subject to GOD not have a flag?

    He wants a deal but the Chinese aren't ready to make a fair deal yet, their actions have made that clear. It was a bad deal designed to destroy our sovereignty and advance global government, Trump will get good deal that doesn't destroy our sovereignty. He says it was a bad deal and there are some good arguments for that, even if you don't agree with him he knows what he wants and he will probably get it. He does and you don't.

    This week The New York Times published an epic 10,000 word piece entitled "The Plot to Subvert and Election - Unraveling the Russia Story So Far." It's essentially the Times' summary of everything that can be definitively established thus far after two years of national obsession and inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling and influence that supposedly ushered Trump into the White House in 2016. The massive investigative piece has the following lede at the top: For two years, Americans have tried to absorb the details of the 2016 attack — hacked emails, social media fraud, suspected spies — and President Trump’s claims that it’s all a hoax. The Times explores what we know and what it means. But what do we learn? Buried among the nearly 200 paragraphs of seemingly endless intelligence "claims" wherein the reader will be disappointed to find no smoking gun detailing any actual conspiracy of meddling and collusion, we find two specific paragraphs — which though contradictory — are incredibly revealing about the nature of the whole 'Russiagate' scandal. First, in paragraph 5 we are told by the Times journalists: President Trump’s Twitter outbursts that it is all a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” in the face of a mountain of evidence to the contrary, have taken a toll on public comprehension. And as Moon of Alabama blog astutely observes, after one-hundred-and-seventy-eight paragraphs featuring repetition of "unproven intelligence claims, spin around a few facts and lots of innuendo" the same authors finally admit that Trump is actually right. Near the end of an exhaustively long piece meant to chronicle the "evidence" that few are likely to ever read in full, we find this bombshell candid admission: Mr. Trump’s frustration with the Russian investigation is not surprising. He is right that no public evidence has emerged showing that his campaign conspired with Russia in the election interference or accepted Russian money.

    The UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) issued a statement late Friday calling on the U.N. to take "concrete and effective" action to protect civilians and halt fighting near the capital. The GNA urged the UN mission to "present the Security Council with the reality of the bloody events in Libya so that it can... protect the lives and property of civilians". On Friday alone clashes in Tripoli left 15 dead and dozens more wounded, according to official health ministry statements. Since fresh fighting again erupted in Tripoli on August 26 (there's been internecine battles in the capital for years), whole sections of the city have been shut down, especially the southern suburbs where initial street battles began, which has witnessed the shelling of residential areas, street-to-street fighting, and tanks in the streets — allreminiscent of the 2011 war which eventually led to a NATO air campaign and forcible removal and assassination of Libya's longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi. According to international reports, some of the feuding militias have come mostly from Libya's third city Misrata and the town of Tarhouna southeast of the capital; however, the early weeks of fighting were driven mostly by rival factions within the GNA itself. On Friday UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres issued a statement through his spokesman, saying he is "alarmed by the increasing number of violations of the ceasefire agreement." Guterres called on the warring militias to respect a prior truce and to "refrain from any actions that would increase the suffering of the civilian population". He said groups responsible for "the violation of international humanitarian law and international human rights law must be held responsible," according to the statement. Previously the UN Support Mission in Libya voiced concerns over "the use of indiscriminate fire and heavy weapons in densely populated residential areas."

    Christine Blasey Ford has accepted the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request to testify on Ford’s allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school, Ford’s attorneys told Senate Republicans on Saturday. Her decision came just ahead of a looming 2:30pm deadline: Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley had given Ford's lawyers until Saturday afternoon to decide whether she would proceed with testifying. Still, her answer is nebulous because as on previous occasions, the exact terms and timing of her testimony remain unclear, as negotiations between Ford's lawyers and staff for the Senate Judiciary Committee remain ongoing. In the email Ford's lawyers said she had accepted the panel's "request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week" even though the legal team said it found that many of the "aspects of the proposal... are fundamentally inconsistent with the Committee's promise of a fair, impartial investigation." The email also didn't specifically say that Ford was agreeing to a Wednesday hearing date, which is what the Judiciary Committee has proposed. And Debra Katz, Ford's lawyer, explicitly said that "she is hopeful that we can reach an agreement on the details." "This an ask to continue 'negotiations' without committing to anything. It's a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday," a senior White House official said Saturday quoted by The Hill. For the past week, both sides had been wrangling over the exact day and conditions for Ford's testimony. Commenting on the constant back and forth, conservative commentator Laura Ingraham said last week that "those who appear before a Senate Committee don’t set the terms. This is ludicrous and must be stopped. Terrible precedent." Grassley has agreed to limit television coverage of next week’s hearing, provide adequate police security and timely breaks. But he has rejected a request from Ford’s lawyers that outside witnesses, such as Kavanaugh’s high school friend Mark Judge, be called to testify.

    A recent flurry of Russian sanctions put in place by the United States are causing Russia's oligarch billionaires to repatriate more of their offshore assets, perversely aiding a long-held ambition for Vladimir Putin, who has been trying to encourage such repatriations for the past two decades according to a new Bloomberg report. While sanctions were first put into place during the Obama era as a result of the conflict in Ukraine, which however resulted in a muted financial response, as a result of the Trump administration‘s unpredictability and Trump's desire to demonstrate his anti-Kremlin stance to Mueller, Russian billionaires - increasingly at risk from a hostile financial regime - have been forced to move some of their assets back to state-run banks and out of an offshore system that has been a popular tax haven since communism has collapsed. And with new anti-Russia sanctions announced by the US and its allies at an increasingly rapid pace, the accelerating repatriations to Russia have been prompted by the desire to keep assets out of the reach of the United States Treasury, which with its implied near monopoly on the Swift financial transfer network, means that the only place "safe" is back in Russia, and under Putin's watchful eye. It's not just the billionaires: numerous Russian exporters have moved their assets out of United States and European banks, as well. While Russia's central bank doesn’t publish statistics on repatriated funds, and so getting an exact number is difficult, Russia’s largest lender, Sberbank PJSC, reported a 17% rise in corporate holdings and all currencies in January through August of this year, equating to about $90 billion. Additionally, balance of payment data indicates that the private sector in Russia brought more financial assets home then it sent overseas in the second quarter - only the second time this has happened since 2014. Here one can argue that raising sanctions on Russia, and the accelerated repatriation wave, is playing right into the Russian president's hands: in June, Vladimir Putin said that he wanted wealthy Russians to move their capital back to "where it’s earned", with the billions in offshore funds meant to reinforce the weakening Russian financial system. However, absent external interference, there simply weren't enough economic opportunities in Russia to prompt repatriation at the level that Putin seeks during his final term, which ends in 2024.

    While there has been no love-loss between the U.S. and Russia in recent years, news coming out of Moscow yesterday was sure to cheer the most ardent Russian naysayers in both Washington and especially the U.S. energy patch. A Russian government official, according to a Bloomberg report, asking to not be named since the information hasn’t been made public yet, said on Thursday that the country’s oil production increased to a new post-Soviet high and is fluctuating between 1.54 million and 1.55 million tons a day, driven mostly by state-run energy firm Rosneft. Those numbers equal between 11.29 million and 11.36 million barrels per day (bpd) of output, bypassing a previous record set in October 2016, just a few months before Russian agreed to participate with a Saudi-led OPEC to reign in an over supplied global oil market and prop prices back up from multi-year lows.

    Papa John’s could unveil a new – but not too new – name and logo in the coming months. The pizza chain may soon get rid of its apostrophe, and go by Papa Johns, in an effort to repair its tarnished image after its founder reportedly made a racist remark earlier this year during a conference call. John Schattner, founder and the company’s face, resigned as chairman in July 2018. Papa John’s International filed paperwork about the new spelling and brand imagery with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in late August. Removing the possessive apostrophe in Papa John’s would, in theory, provide a more distance between the company and its founder, so it doesn’t look like he owns the business.

    The point isn't about circumcision, the point is that FGM has been declared "EVIL" by the mainstream PC culture and yet Twitter is allowing advertisements for it while they ban conservatives for nothing at all. Due to the Eurabia plan muslims could start doing ritual human sacrifice and cannibalism and Twitter wouldn't ban them, it would probably be declared "green" and the left would promote it.

    Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang, a former police chief known as a tough politician and committed communist with little tolerance for dissent, died Friday aged 61 after a serious illness, state media reported.His death is not likely to dramatically alter politics in a country where the powerful communist government oversees almost every facet of society -- although the death of a sitting leader is rare. Coverage on state media was sombre Friday, with a Vietnam Television anchor in dark clothing announcing the news of the leader's death, first reported by the official Vietnam News Agency. A member of Quang's staff confirmed his death to AFP. The president had sought treatment in Japan for over a year before he was checked into hospital on Thursday afternoon after contracting a "rare virus", Nguyen Quoc Trieu, in charge of the healthcare committee for top leaders, said in state media. In office as president since April 2016 after more than four decades at the powerful Ministry of Public Security (MPS), Quang had a reputation as a hardliner. Though he held one of the country's top four positions and was officially the head of state, his role was seen as largely ceremonial, greeting visiting leaders and hosting diplomatic events in a bid to boost Vietnam's profile on the world stage.
