Trump Alpha-Dogged Angela Merkel At G7 With A Starburst

Published

According to a report from CBS, President Donald J. Trump made quite a spectacle with a Starburst candy at the G7 summit.

“[Trump] stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said to Merkel, ‘Here Angela, don’t say I never give you anything,’” said Ian Bremmer, senior global affairs contributor for CBS.

Bremmer provided little context for the exchange, but context is unnecessary for understanding Trump’s massive power play.

“Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” he said. “Nevertheless, Germany owes…..”

Trump recently took a swipe at the migrant-laden European nation on Twitter.

“The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition,”  he said. “Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!”

Meanwhile, Merkel is fighting to save her chancellorship and political career, which have been marred by an “open door” policy resulting in the migration of 1.6 million “refugees” from Africa and the Middle East. The wave of migrants has caused devastating crime and employment issues, as well as a housing crisis.

“We are in a serious situation because the question of the migration crisis evolved into a power question,” German lawmaker Kai Whittaker told the BBC. “It could well be that at the end of next week we have a new situation… Probably a new chancellor.”

Whatever the relationship between the two leaders, there seems to be little question about who is in charge.

President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts

Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.

President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.

He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.

The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…

Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.

Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”

“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.

“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.

President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.

“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.

The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
