President Donald Trump’s foreign policy is a stark departure from his predecessors, as he has chosen to extend the olive branch to world leaders reviled by the military-industrial complex rather than provoke them. His talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan are proving particularly fruitful.
Trump met with national security advisers and his Cabinet members last week to hear from Zalmay Khalilzad, who is the chief U.S. envoy for peace talks with the Taliban. Others at the meeting included Vice President Mike Pence, CIA Director Gina Haspel, national security adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Defense Secretary Mark Esper.
The first step of the proposed peace deal would involve the removal of approximately 5,000 of the 14,000 U.S. troops currently stationed in Afghanistan. In return, the Taliban would renounce Al Qaeda and sanction the anti-American terrorist group by preventing them from recruiting, fundraising and training in Taliban-controlled areas of Afghanistan.
The White House is being vague about the particular details of the negotiations. Deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said that “discussions centered around our ongoing negotiations and eventual peace and reconciliation agreement with the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan.”
“The meeting went very well,” Gidley added.
President Trump also released a tweet without specifics claiming that the two sides are coming closer together:
Just completed a very good meeting on Afghanistan. Many on the opposite side of this 19 year war, and us, are looking to make a deal – if possible!

Trump’s negotiations for peace in Afghanistan are angering hawkish neoconservative lawmakers in Washington D.C. – led by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was a vocal proponent of the disastrous war in Iraq.
To argue for endless war, Graham said that “to trust the Taliban to control al-Qaeda” and extremist groups in Afghanistan “as a replacement for a U.S. counterterrorism force would be a bigger mistake than Obama’s Iranian nuclear deal.”
“I hope President Trump and his team make sound and sustainable decisions about radical Islamist threats emanating from Afghanistan — the place where 9/11 originated,” Graham said.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, also opposes President Trump’s peace push in Afghanistan. She implied that Trump is pushing for a “phony deal” with his current negotiating.
Accepting a phony deal that puts America’s security in the hands of the Taliban would mean conceding defeat to al Qaeda, the group responsible for killing nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11. See my full statement below. https://t.co/U6Hm6BxlJa

However, Trump is acutely aware that he was elected to bring the troops home. His “America First” foreign policy is opposed to putting U.S. troops in harms way in order to be the policemen of the world.

“I love our country. I’m the President of the United States of America. I’m not the president of the world,” Trump said.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is calling for President Trump to receive a Nobel Peace Prize if he pulls off this historic Afghanistan peace deal – perhaps the one that was erroneously given to former President Barack Obama.
Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize and subsequently sent 100,000 US troops to ramp up war in Afghanistan. If @realDonaldTrump ends the war, the Nobel Committee should retrieve Obama’s peace prize and give it to Trump! https://t.co/9B3ttXT8QO

With the Democrats becoming more violent and deranged by the second, it looks like Trump will be the choice for peace and prosperity that is on the ballot during next year’s general election.
Trump’s DHS Ignores Far-Left BLM/Antifa Terrorists, Declares So-Called ‘White Supremacists’ to Be Top Domestic Terror Threat
Cops are being shot in the street.
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is the latest Trump administration official to fold to the left-wing narrative to demonize white people, claiming that so-called “white supremacist extremists” are the real terrorist threat, and refusing to name ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter as the top domestic terror threats in the U.S.
“White supremacist extremists, from a lethality standpoint over the last two years, particularly when you look at 2018 and 2019, are certainly the most persistent and lethal threat when we talk about domestic violent extremists,” Wolf said while addressing senators – citing no figures to back his assertion up.
In addition to peddling deep state nonsense against white people, Wolf also parroted talking points about how the evil Rooskies are going to interfere in this election. He claimed that “Russia looks to denigrate former Vice President Biden” and that they are undermining U.S. elections. He seemed to give Iran and China a pass when addressing those hostile nations though.
Wolf’s comments show that the DHS is as compromised as the FBI. Big League Politics has reported about how the FBI has covered for ANTIFA/BLM terrorists while putting the focus on white supremacists as cities are razed by organized gangs of roving savages:
As Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA wage war on the streets of America, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is concerned about making sure the thugs stay safe from their opponents as they lay waste to cities throughout the country.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced in a press release on Wednesday that FBI agents had apprehended 42-year-old El Paso resident Manuel Flores for allegedly “posting a threatening communication over the Internet.”
In the offending video, Flores allegedly made several racial slurs and dared BLM activists to try to “stop him” from exercising his Constitutional rights. This caused the feds to intervene in order to protect the organized movement of rioters destroying the country.
“Our office will treat any threats of violence against protesters extremely seriously,” U.S. Attorney John Bash wrote in a statement released over Twitter.
The FBI has carried water for the left-wing agitators since the beginning of the nationwide riots, doing everything they can to paint conservatives and right-wingers as the real threat…
The deep state clearly wants these riots to continue, as it may be their only chance to avoid the Trump administration’s reprisal for their illegal Russian collusion witch hunt and various other criminal activities.
The president’s administration has been subverted and is working to demonize white people for the globalists. The systemic hatred against white people is rising, and the Department of Homeland Security is fanning the flames of this hatred with nonsense.
