Trump blasts “ROCKET MAN” Kim, and the “dictatorships” of Iran, Syria and Venezuela in first UN speech

Donald Trump’s speech was little more than a list of threats against North Korea, Iran, Syria, Venezuela and Cuba with subtle references to Russia and China.

Donald Trump has delivered a shockingly bellicose speech during his first appearance before the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

The speech began by striking a tone which sounded more like a speech before a domestic US audience than before the nations of the world.

Trump welcomed delegates and leaders to his home town of New York before citing the fact that his leadership has brought the US stock markets to record highs. He also cited a sixteen year low unemployment rate in the US before proudly announcing that the US is now spending record amounts on the military.

The US President then said that the US military will soon be the strongest it has ever been. This would be the central element of a speech that was filled with threats against fellow members of the United Nations.

Early in the speech Trump stated that the US will not be guided by ideology, nor seek to impose its will on the wider world. He further said that “outcomes” based problem solving is preferable to ideological struggle. Trump remarked that he seeks to protect America first and that it is the duty of all nations to protect their own citizens above all else. This earned Trump a considerable amount of applause from the chamber, although this adoration would be short lived. The remaining parts of the speech contradicted this notion in the most extreme manner imaginable.

Much like George W. Bush’s infamously violent  ‘Axis of Evil’ speech before the US Congress, Trump used the United Nations as a forum to deliver military threats against several fellow nations.

While Trump spoke of “principled realism”, his speech was anything but. He cited threats to ‘sovereignty’ from “the Ukraine to the South China Sea” in an apparent insult to both Russia and China, one which however, does not accurately reflect the realities of the borderlands and maritime territories of either country.

He then moved on to criticising countries he called a “small group of rogue regimes” which according to Trump, threaten world peace.

NORTH KOREA

The US President stated that North Korea threatens the entire world calling the government in Pyongyang a “depraved regime”.

He threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea with military force if what he sees as a problem is not solved.

He then said,

“Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime”. 

This is a reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un whom Trump previously referred to as “rocket man” in a disparaging Tweet just days ago.

He then accused North Korea of starving its citizens, killing the brother of the current leader (a charge which no one has presented thorough evidence to back up) and also blamed Pyongyang for the death of Otto Warmbier, a US citizen who died on American soil after his early release from a prison in North Korea.

Donald Trump thanked Russia and China for voting in favour of further sanctions against North Korea at the UN Security Council but warned that if the UN cannot solve the issue, the US is prepared to use military force against North Korea, ostensibly in a preemptive attack.

IRAN

Donald Trump then turned to Iran calling it a “corrupt dictatorship” which threatens Israel. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who was in the audience, looked on with smiling approval at that point.

Donald Trump lambasted Iran further, saying that its main export is violence, including terrorism. Calling the Lebanese political party Hezbollah a “terrorist group”, Trump criticised Iran for its support of Hezbollah.

Trump then said that the JCPOA, which Trump called by its colloquial name, the Iran nuclear deal, was an “embarrassment to the United States”.

He indicated that the deal is all but over before once again accusing Iran of sponsoring terrorism, a patently untrue allegation. Iran is helping both Syria and Iraq to fight ISIS.

Trump then praised Saudi Arabia, a country considered to be the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism, and thanked the Saudi regime for helping the US to fight “radical Islamic terrorism”.

The US leader then vowed that the US will crush “loser terrorists” in spite of all else.

SYRIA 

Donald Trump called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a “dictator” supported by Iran. He further restated the discredited story that Syria used chemical weapons on civilians in Idlib on the 4 of April 2017. The US President then congratulated himself on his decision to illegally strike Syria on the 6th of April in relation to the alleged chemical attack.

VENEZUELA and CUBA

Turning to Latin America, Donald Trump called Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro a “socialist dictator” whose alleged failures are due to the fact that he has “faithfully implemented” socialism in Venezuela. This statement elicited audible laughter from the audience at the General Assembly.

Trump then went on to blast the alleged wickedness of socialism and communism before threatening possible military action against Venezuela.

Trump then defended his stance to reimpose sanctions on Cuba which he also criticised for having a socialist government.

CONCLUSION:

Donald Trump’s speech which began by talking about the US economy and ended by slamming mass migration, two elements clearly designed for domestic consumption, will be remembered by most people in the world for being a tiresome, insane sounding attack on the sovereignty of other nations, even as Trump claimed earlier in his speech that the US does not seek to force its ideology upon others.

His factual untruths about North Korea, Iran, Syria and Venezuela sounded more like a schoolboy delivering a rant against nations he finds distasteful than that of a world leader worthy of the name.

The speech, which was only the second in a long line of speeches by world leaders, will almost certainly be heavily criticised by Donald Trump’s fellow leaders in the hours and days to come.

Can’t believe I missed this, but it isn’t that Trump was any more misinformed than everyone else. Before 9/11 (and for a while after) how many believed (or cared little for) the narrative? Trump is no Politician and his policies and actions reflect that. He gets on like a town mayor in the oval office, not realising the stakes are a hell of a lot higher. I’m not going to big up politicians, but I will say this for all of them (even the good ones). The core tennet of high level politics is deplomacy and all politicians practice it,… Read more »

Syria? Where did that come from? Did he include them because the US couldn’t destroy them?
Destroy NK? Did he also say destroy SK as well, because that is obviously what would happen if the US tried to hit NK.
I can’t stand to see or read the news anymore…..

Donald Trump just farted directly on the faces of his supporters and they feel that this was a breath fresh air. They have shown themselves to be servile imbeciles by filling the internet comment sections with their idiocy.

The cult of personality is unusually strong in the US. All a politician need do over there to have the mob follow him blindly even to their own doom is appeal to their vanity while also stoking their fears and paranoia. It is particularly sad to see so many in the alternative media swallow the Trump kool aid despite all the evidence we now have that the man is another deranged neocon who poses a threat to all living creatures on Earth. There are dark days ahead of us.

They see it with their own eyes. There is no reason to just “think it”,they “know it”. But I gotta love that Trump has freed the world from having to show respect in names for leaders.I like “Orangutan man” myself and hope North Korea,Iran,Syria,and Venezuela will adopt it..Russia and China should as well.

“Sovereignty is anathema to the global financial elites.”
Remind me again how US respected Serbia, Iraq, Libya and now, as we speak , Syria’s sovereignty and other numerous countries, which were attacked in the 72 years since the end of WWII. Yes, US doesn’t give a damn about other countries’ sovereignty and inviolable borders, land and air space. Yes, sovereignty of other countries is anathema to US .

Russian Il-20 downed by Syrian missile. Russia blames Israel. Israel blames Syria (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 110.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The unthinkable has happened in Syria.

The world now teeters on the brink of all out war in Syria as a Russian Il-20 was downed by Syrian missile after Israeli F-16s used it as cover during attack, according to statements made by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

President Vladimir Putin, answering a reporter’s question during a press conference with Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, said the downing of the Russian Il-20 plane looks like “a chain of tragic circumstances.” 

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the tripwire triggered that has the potential to tip the fragile balance in Syria towards conflict between Russia, Iran and Israel.

The Russian military says an Israeli raid on Syria triggered a chain of events that led to its Il-20 plane being shot down by a Syrian S-200 surface-to-air missile. Moscow reserves the right to respond accordingly.

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said…

“Israel did not warn the command of the Russian troops in Syria about the planned operation. We received a notification via a hotline less than a minute before the strike, which did not allow the Russian aircraft to be directed to a safe zone.”

The statement by the Russian Defense Ministry said that four Israeli F-16 fighter jets attacked targets in Syria’s Latakia after approaching from the Mediterranean.

The Israeli warplanes approached at a low altitude and “created a dangerous situation for other aircraft and vessels in the region.”

The statement further said that 15 Russian military service members have died as a result…

“The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile.”

According to reports from RT, the Russian military said that the French Navy’s frigate ‘Auvergne,’ as well as a Russian Il-20 plane were in the area during the Israeli operation.

Map of the incident on September 17 in Syria provided by the Russian defense ministry.

The Russian ministry said the Israelis must have known that the Russian plane was present in the area, but this did not stop them from executing “the provocation.” Israel also failed to warn Russia about the planned operation in advance. The warning came just a minute before the attack started, which “did not leave time to move the Russian plane to a safe area,”the statement said.

The statement gives a larger death toll than earlier reports by the Russian military, which said there were 14 crew members on board the missing Il-20. It said a search and rescue operation for the shot-down plane is underway.

A later update said debris from the downed plane was found some 27km off the Latakia coast. The search party collected some body parts, personal possessions of the crew, and fragments of the plane.

Meanwhile Israel has come out to blame the Syrian government for the downing of the military plane, according to an IDF statement.

Israel said that it “expresses sorrow for the death of the aircrew members” of the Russian plane. However, it stated that the government of Bashar Assad “whose military shot down the Russian plane,” is “fully responsible” for the incident.

Israel further blamed Iran and Hezbollah for the incident.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) explained that its jets were targeting a Syrian facility “from which systems to manufacture accurate and lethal weapons were about to be transferred on behalf of Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon.”

Israel claimed that the weapons were “meant to attack Israel.”

Via RT

The IDF assumed that the Syrian anti-air batteries “fired indiscriminately” and didn’t “bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air.” The Israelis said that when the Syrian military launched the missiles which hit the Russian plane, its own jets were already within Israeli airspace. “During the strike against the target in Latakia, the Russian plane that was then hit was not within the area of the operation.”

According to the Israeli military, both IDF and Russia have “a deconfliction system,” which was agreed upon by the leadership of both states, and “has proven itself many times over recent years.” The system was in use when the incident happened, the IDF stated. The IDF promised to share “all the relevant information” with Russia “to review the incident and to confirm the facts in this inquiry.”

The military presented a four-point initial inquiry into events in Latakia. It insisted that “extensive and inaccurate” Syrian anti-aircraft fire caused the Russian jet “to be hit and downed.”

The Russian Il-20 aircraft, with 15 crew on board, went off radar during an attack by four Israeli jets on Syria’s Latakia province late Monday. Later on Tuesday the Russian Defense Ministry said that an Israeli raid on Syria triggered a chain of events that led to its plane being shot down by a Syrian S-200 surface-to-air missile.

Trump Orders Immediate Release Of All Text Messages, Carter Page FISA Application From Russia Investigation

Trump has ordered the DOJ to release all text messages related to the Russia investigation with no redactions.

Published

on

Via Zerohedge

President Trump has ordered the Department of Justice to release all text messages related to the Russia investigation with no redactions, of former FBI Director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, now-fired special agent Peter Strzok, former FBI attorney Lisa Page and twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr.

Also released will be specific pages from the FBI’s FISA surveillance warrant application on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, as well as interviews with Ohr.

The statement reads in full:

“At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr

***

As we reported last Monday, Trump had been expected to release the documents any time – with specific attention to the Page documents and the “investigative activities of Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr” – who was demoted twice for lying about his extensive relationship  with Christopher Steele – the former MI6 spy who assembled the sham “Steele Dossier” used by the FBI in a FISA surveillance application to spy on Page.

Republicans on the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees believe the declassification will permanently taint the Trump-Russia investigation by showing the investigation was illegitimate to begin with. Trump has been hammering the same theme for months.

  • They allege that Bruce Ohr played an improper intermediary role between the Justice Department, British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS — the opposition research firm that produced the Trump-Russia dossier, funded by Democrats. (Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS on Russia-related matters during the presidential election — a fact that Ohr did not disclose on federal forms.)
  • And they further allege that the Obama administration improperly spied on Carter Page — all to take down Trump. –Axios

Ohr, meanwhile, met with Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska in 2015 to discuss helping the FBI with organized crime investigations, according to The Hill‘s John Solomon. The meeting with the Putin ally was facilitated by Steele.

Last month Trump called Ohr a disgrace, while also tweeting: “Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions  “Justice” Department? A total joke!”

Trump’s threat came one day after two tweets about Ohr, noting a connection to former FBI agent Peter Strzok, as well as a text sent by Ohr after former FBI Director James Comey was fired in which Ohr says “afraid they will be exposed.”

According to emails turned over to Congressional investigators in August, Christopher Steele was much closer to Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie than previously disclosed.

Steele and the Ohrs would have breakfast together on July 30, 2016 at the Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington D.C., days after Steele turned in installments of his infamous “dossier” on July 19 and 26. The breakfast also occurred one day before the FBI formally launched operation “Crossfire Hurricane,” the agency’s counterintelligence operation into the Trump campaign.

“Great to see you and Nellie this morning Bruce,” Steele wrote shortly following their breakfast meeting. “Let’s keep in touch on the substantive issues/s (sic). Glenn is happy to speak to you on this if it would help.”

“After two years of investigations and accusations from both sides of the aisle about what documents indicate, it is past time for documents to be declassified and let the American people decide for themselves if DoJ and FBI acted properly,” Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows told Axios earlier Sunday.

In early August, journalist Paul Sperry tweeted that Trump may use his presidential authority to declassify “20 redacted pages of a June, 2017 FISA renewal, “and possibly” 63 pages of emails and notes between “Ohr & Steele,” and FD-302 summaries of 12 interviews.”

President Trump threatened to declassify documents two weeks ago – one day after the New York Times allegedly published an anonymous Op-Ed claiming to be from a White House official claiming to be part of an unelected “resistance” cabal within the Trump administration.

“The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going Crazy – & they don’t know what to do,” Trump tweeted earlier this month, adding: “The Economy is booming like never before, Jobs are at Historic Highs, soon TWO Supreme Court Justices & maybe Declassification to find Additional Corruption. Wow!”

Trump’s threat comes as calls by frustrated GOP legislators to release the documents have hit a fevered pitch. Spearheading the effort are Republican Reps. Meadows, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz and Lee Zeldin – who have repeatedly asked Trump to declassify more of the heavily redacted FISA surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page in late 2016.

In June, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee asked President Trump to declassify key sections of Carter Page’s FISA warrant application, according to a letter obtained by Fox News.

Carter Page, the DOJ/FBI’s person of interest, weighed in on the matter in late August, tweeting: “The Corrupt DOJ, co-conspirators in the DNC and their high-priced consultants correctly believed they had American democracy and the FISA Court over a barrel in 2016.”

De-Dollarization Tops Agenda at Russia’s Eastern Economic Forum

The Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) was held in Vladivostok on Sept.11-13. Founded in 2015, the event has become a platform for planning and launching projects to strengthen business ties in the Asia-Pacific region.

Via Strategic Culture

This year, the EEF brought together delegations from over 60 countries to discuss the topic “The Far East: Expanding the Range of Possibilities”. A total of 100 business events involving over 6,000 participants were held during the three days.

1,357 media personnel worked to cover the forum. Last year, the number of participants was 5,000 with 1,000 media persons involved in reporting and broadcasting. The EEF-18 gathered 340 foreign and 383 Russian CEOs. Nearly 80 start-ups from across South-East Asia joined the meeting.

This year, a total of 175 agreements worth of 2.9 trillion rubles (some $4.3 billion) were signed. For comparison, the sum was 2.5 trillion rubles (roughly $3.7 billion) in 2017.

They included the development of the Baimsky ore deposits in Chukotka, the construction of a terminal for Novatek LNG at Bechevinskaya Bay in Kamchatka and the investment of Asian countries in Russia’s agricultural projects in the Far East.

Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Mail.Ru Group, Megafon and Chinese Alibaba inked an agreement on establishing AliExpress trade joint venture. Rosneft and Chinese CNPC signed an oil exploration agreement.

The Chinese delegation was the largest (1,096 people), followed by the Japanese (570 members). The list of guests included the president of Mongolia and prime ministers of Japan and South Korea.

It was also the first time Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the event to meet his Russian counterpart. The issue of de-dollarization topped the agenda. Russia and China reaffirmed their interest in expanding the use of national currencies in bilateral deals.

During the forum, Kirill Dmitriev, the head of RDIF, said the fund intends to use only national currencies in its transactions with China starting from 2019. It will cooperate with the China Development Bank.

This “yuanification” is making visible progress with Shanghai crude futures increasing their share of oil markets up to 14 percent or even more. China has signed agreements with Canada and Qatar on national currencies exchange.

De-dollarization is a trend that is picking up momentum across the world. A growing number of countries are interested in replacing the dollar. Russia is leading the race to protect itself from fluctuations, storms and US-waged trade wars and sanctions.

Moscow backs non-dollar trade with Ankara amid the ongoing lira crisis. Turkey is switching from the dollar to settlements in national currencies, including its trade with China and other countries. Ditching the US dollar is the issue topping the BRICS agenda. In April, Iran transferred all international payments to the euro.

The voices calling for de-dollarization are getting louder among America’s closest European allies. In August, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US.

According to him, Europe should not allow the United States to act “over our heads and at our expense.” The official wants to strengthen European autonomy by establishing independent payment channels, creating a European Monetary Fund and building up an independent SWIFT system.

Presenting his annual program, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called on Sept. 12 for the European Union to promote the euro as a global currency to challenge the dollar.

According to him, “We must do more to allow our single currency to play its full role on the international scene.” Mr. Juncker believes “it is absurd that Europe pays for 80 percent of its energy import bill – worth 300 billion euros a year – in US dollars when only roughly 2 percent of our energy imports come from the United States.” He wants the raft of proposals made in his state of the union address to start being implemented before the European Parliament elections in May.

70% of all world trade transactions account for the dollar, while 20% are  settled in the euro, and the rest falls on the yuan and other Asian currencies. The dollar value is high to make the prices of consumer goods in the US artificially low. The demand for dollars allows refinancing the huge debt at low interest rates. The US policy of trade wars and sanctions has triggered the global process of de-dollarization.

Using punitive measures as a foreign policy tool is like shooting oneself in the foot. It prompts a backlash to undermine the dollar’s status as the world reserve currency – the basis of the US economic might. The aggressive policy undermines the US world standing to make it weaker, not stronger.
