U.S. May Withdraw From U.N. Human Rights Council Over Anti-Israel Bias

“When the world’s preeminent human rights body is turned into a haven for dictators…”

The United States is expected to warn the international community on Tuesday of its withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council unless reforms are enacted to remove the Council’s “anti-Israel bias,” according to a report by Reuters.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced in an op-ed in The Washington Post that the Trump administration would decide whether to withdraw from the Council after the conclusion of its three-week session in Geneva, Switzerland, this month.

The announcement would come less than a week after President Donald Trump shocked the world by withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement.

Haley will be attending the Council’s sessions in Geneva this week, where she plans to call for reforms.

Most notably, she plans to call on the Council to “end its practice of wrongly singling out Israel for criticism.”

“When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong,” Haley wrote.

Haley also accused some members of the Council, such as Venezuela and Cuba, of ignoring the membership requirement to “uphold the highest standard” of human rights.

“The presence of multiple human rights-violating countries on the Human Rights Council has damaged both the reputation of the council and the cause of human rights,” Haley wrote. “When the world’s preeminent human rights body is turned into a haven for dictators, the idea of international cooperation in support of human dignity is discredited.”

Haley made clear that changes must be made to the Human Rights Council to “restore the legitimacy of universal human rights.”

John Fisher, the Geneva director of Human Rights Watch, a research and advocacy group, said the Council is likely to work with Haley to enact her desired reforms.

“Our understanding is that it is going to be a message of engagement and reform,” Fisher told reporters.

Fisher said the Council’s focus on Israel was “a reasonable concern.”

“It is an anomaly that there is a dedicated agenda item in a way that there isn’t for North Korea or Syria or anything else,” he said.

A total of eight groups, including Freedom House and the Jacob Blaustein Institute, wrote to Haley in May urging her to stay on the path of reform.

The groups warn that Israel may face a “greater degree” of “unfair targeting” if the U.S. were to withdraw from the Council.

Trump Gives Out Personal Cell Number to World Leaders

by Benjamin Arie

Donald Trump’s entire campaign platform was based on taking on the establishment — and it looks like the stuffed suits in Washington can’t stand it. The mainstream media and old-school politicians are now attacking the president for something that nearly everybody in America uses constantly: A cellphone.

According to the Associated Press, Trump has given his cellphone number to several prominent world leaders, and asked them to call him directly if they want to talk.

Like Trump’s use of Twitter to bypass the traditional gatekeepers in the media, the use of a private cellphone is likely the president’s way of sidestepping the bureaucracy in the White House, and dealing directly with his counterparts around the globe.

It’s a method that the billionaire no doubt used effectively while running a multinational corporation, and an executive providing a direct cellphone number is so routine in 2017 that it’s almost unremarkable. Predictably, however, the left’s proverbial heads are exploding at the idea.

“[I]n the diplomatic arena, where leader-to-leader calls are highly orchestrated affairs, it is another notable breach of protocol for a president who has expressed distrust of official channels,” scolded the AP.

Liberals simply cannot stand that the president of the United States might “breach protocol” to actually get things done. In the world of Washington, playing by the establishment rules is more important than accomplishing anything.

The leaders of both Mexico and Canada were among the first to receive Trump’s number, according to reports. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has already called the president on the private line.

Despite the media’s hysteria over a cellphone, the use of a personal device by world leaders — including the U.S. president — is hardly new.

Fortune Magazine revealed that Barack Obama was all but addicted to his Blackberry phone while in the White House. He finally kicked the habit, only to replace the outdated cellphone with a more modern smartphone in 2016.

An in-depth piece by The Guardian showed that Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, began using a cellphone with special encryption not long ago. The president of Russia and the prime minister of France are both enthusiastic users of Apple iPhones, according to the report.

Hillary Clinton famously used as many as 13 different mobile devices while serving as secretary of state and then while running for president, as reported by The Hill.

While Clinton was rightly criticized for her lax security measures, the problem wasn’t that she used a cellphone, but rather that she casually dealt with classified material over unsecured devices.

There is no indication that Trump is using his private cellphone for anything other than routine, unclassified chats with other leaders. Furthermore, it would be ridiculous to presume that the leader of the most powerful nation in the world doesn’t have access to an encrypted and secured cellphone.

The left is so obsessed with Trump that he can’t even make an unintended typo without the media squawking about it. Americans elected Trump to clean house in Washington and get things done, but liberals will do anything to attack and undermine him — even when he’s simply doing his job.

“Covfefe” Mystery Solved – Here’s What It Means

The internet immediately blew up this Wednesday when President Trump tweeted the word “Covfefe.” Thousands of left-oriented Twitter users immediately started mocking President Trump, accusing him of “sleep-texting” or making a typo, but now, the troubling mystery has finally been unraveled only to find out what the word truly means.

Just within hours of the tweet, hundreds of mockery pictures were being made and posted on social media, until Sean Spicer himself, addressed the “covfefe” mystery, and said that it wasn’t what anyone thought, and it was actually intentional. When translated in Arabic, the word “Cov fe’fe” means “I will stand up.” ***

Comey Tried To Hide In White House Curtains To Avoid Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room in order to avoid being approached by President Trump

According to a New York Times report published Thursday, Comey tried to blend into the Blue Room’s blue curtains during a White House visit for a ceremony honoring law enforcement officials who provided security at inauguration.

From The Hill

Comey recounted the incident to his friend, Brookings Institution fellow Benjamin Wittes, who told the story to The Times. Comey, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, was wearing a dark blue suit and stood near the similarly colored curtains in the back of the room, hoping that Trump would not spot him.
“He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away without an individual interaction,” Wittes told the Times.

However, Comey was spotted by the president, who called out to him and joked he had become “more famous” than himself. Trump went in for a hug when Comey was reportedly trying to only give Trump a handshake.

“Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasn’t going to be a hug,” Wittes said. “It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake. And Comey has long arms so Comey said he pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president’s hand. But Trump pulled him into an embrace and Comey didn’t reciprocate. If you look at the video, it’s one person shaking hands and another hugging.”

The Times report mostly went into Comey’s experience with the president leading up to his abrupt firing last week. Comey reportedly tried to distance himself from Trump to ensure the FBI’s independence from the White House.

Trump’s Attorneys Issue Letter Certifying No Russia Business Ties

“A lot of people thought I owned…”

President Donald Trump sent a letter from his private attorneys to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., this week certifying that based on tax returns over the last 10 years, the president has no significant business ties to Russia.

The letter, which was prepared for Trump by attorneys Sheri Dillon and William Nelson with the Washington, D.C. firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius in early March, was delivered to Graham in response to comments he made indicating that he wanted his Senate Judiciary subcommittee to look into Trump’s potential business ties to Russia.

The South Carolina senator said it would be helpful to have Trump tax returns as it investigates the matter, but he did not commit to subpoenaing them.

NBC News’ Lester Holt asked Trump on Thursday, “Can you tell us whether you, your family, your businesses, you surrogates, have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals?”

Trump responded referencing the letter forwarded to Graham from “one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.”

“I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia, none, whatsoever,” the president proclaimed.

He continued, “I don’t have property in Russia. A lot of people thought I owned office buildings in Moscow. I don’t have property in Russia.”

The letter states, “With a few exceptions — as detailed below — your tax returns do not reflect (1) any income of any type from Russian sources, (2) any debt owed by you or TTO [The Trump Organization] to Russian lenders or any interest paid by you or TTO to Russian lenders, (3) any equity investments by Russian persons or entities in entities controlled by you or TTO, or (4) any equity or debt investments by you or TTO in Russian entities.”

The letter lists the exceptions, which Trump also discussed during his Holt interview. In 2013, the Miss Universe pageant was held in Russia and a substantial portion of Trump’s $12.2 million in foreign income reported on his taxes that year, resulted from that event.

Additionally, in 2008 Trump Properties LLC sold an Palm Beach, Fla., estate it acquired in 2005 for $41 million to a Russian billionaire for $95 million.

Finally, the attorneys write that it is likely that Trump Organization entities or affiliates engaged in selling goods or services to Russians during the normal course of business. Examples given included condominium fees, hotel rooms, rounds of golf, or Trump licensed products such as ties, books, or wine.

 

 

WHO ARE TRUMP SUPPORTERS

Whoa! What Trump Just Did For Flint Michigan Will FLOOR YOU! The Media Will NEVER Report This!

President Trumps campaign visits to Flint, Michigan gave him an up close view of the deprecated infrastructure of this once booming town. Flint residents been crying out for months for help and now their call is finally being answered!

“President Trump is awarding 100 million dollars to the city of Flint, Michigan!”

Liberty Writers News reports,

The funds are part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, which was approved in 2016 and now being carried out by President Trump. The money was officially awarded on Friday, and will help the city accelerate programs to replace service lines that have leached lead in to the city’s water supply.

Mayor, Karen Weaver said the city is really ‘excited and very grateful’ to receive the aid from the federal government.

“The city of Flint being awarded a grant of this magnitude in such a critical time of need will be a huge benefit,” Weaver said.

President Trump supports making budget cuts to save taxpayers money, but this is an area that he will not touch.

“Under President Trump’s budget blueprint, SRF (State Revolving Fund) remains fully funded, and the proposal provides robust funding for the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program to finance critical drinking and wastewater infrastructure,” the EPA said in a statement.

Many community activists claim that this situation has been ignored because Flint residents are mostly black and poor. I wonder if those same activists will praise our president for releasing the funds so quickly to help Americans in need.

Dear President Trump

NY Times Contradicts Itself On Wiretap: Its Front Page Headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides”

That was the headline from January 20th, 2017. Here we are in March and they are trashing their own reports! Now they are saying there is no evidence of a wiretap.

The New York Times has inadvertently attacked the credibility of its own reporting on the Obama Administration’s investigation of Russia and now-President Donald Trump.
Times reporters Michael Schmidt and Michael Shear write that Trump believes the “deep state” intelligence community, staffed with holdovers from the Obama Administration, wiretapped several of his campaign associates because of a spurious article from Breitbart News:

On Sunday, the president demanded a congressional inquiry into whether Mr. Obama had abused the power of federal law enforcement agencies before the 2016 presidential election. In a statement from his spokesman, Mr. Trump called “reports” about the wiretapping “very troubling” and said that Congress should examine them as part of its investigations into Russia’s meddling in the election.

Mr. Trump’s demand for a congressional investigation appears to be based, at least in part, on unproved claims by Breitbart News and conservative talk radio hosts that secret warrants were issued authorizing the tapping of the phones of Mr. Trump and his aides at Trump Tower in New York.
The Gateway Pundit comments,

The Breitbart article in question (which Schmidt and Shear do not link to) cites the Times’ own reporting on the intelligence community. Their January 19th article, “Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump Associates,” also bore Schmidt’s byline.
