Trump Officials Tried To Rush Nuclear Technology To Saudis, House Panel Finds

Post by Lurker on Sat Mar 02, 2019 4:06 pm

https://www.npr.org/2019/02/19/695954246/trump-officials-tried-to-rush-nuclear-technology-to-saudis-house-panel-finds?fbclid=IwAR0y89KfdE7NBilMlgWeePcNSoOy-EqfrItWgeB7hqmJo1pUFWPAx_BEZS8

The Trump administration sought to rush the transfer of American nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in potential violation of the law, a new report from the House Oversight and Reform Committee alleges.

Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings' staff issued an "interim staff" report Tuesday, citing "multiple whistleblowers" who raised ethical and legal concerns about the process.

"They have warned about political appointees ignoring directives from top ethics advisers at the White House who repeatedly and unsuccessfully ordered senior Trump administration officials to halt their efforts," the report states. "They have also warned of conflicts of interest among top White House advisers that could implicate federal criminal statutes."


The committee's report alleges that the major drivers behind the effort to transfer U.S. nuclear technology were retired Gen. Michael Flynn, who served as the president's national security adviser, and Thomas Barrack, who chaired Trump's inauguration committee. Flynn was fired in February 2017 for lying about conversations with the Russian ambassador to Vice President Pence and the FBI.

For about seven months in 2016, including during the presidential transition, Flynn served as an adviser to IP3 International, a private company seeking to build nuclear plants in Saudi Arabia.

The whistleblowers told the committee that Flynn continued to advocate for IP3's plan even after he joined the White House as the president's national security adviser in 2017.

The Atomic Energy Act requires that Congress approve any transfer of nuclear technology to a foreign country. The committee's report states that a senior director at the National Security Council (NSC), Derek Harvey, "reportedly ignored ... warnings and insisted that the decision to transfer nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia had already been made."


The NSC's lawyers realized that Flynn had a possible conflict of interest that could violate the law, the whistleblowers said, and told NSC staff to stop working on the nuclear technology transfer plan. Despite Flynn's firing in February 2017, the plan appeared to continue to progress with Barrack's support.

The committee announced that it intends to launch an investigation into this matter "to determine whether the actions being pursued by the Trump administration are in the national security interests of the United States, or, rather, serve those who stand to gain financially as a result of this potential change in U.S. foreign policy."


Shortly after the release of the report, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., announced that his panel would be coordinating with Cummings' staff to explore these allegations.

Tuesday's disclosure of a plan to sell nuclear technology comes as the United States considers its relationship with the Saudi government in the wake of the killing of writer Jamal Khashoggi.


Following his death, the House and Senate have both passed resolutions to limit U.S. involvement in the Saudi-led coalition fighting in the Yemeni civil war. The Senate also passed a resolution by voice vote — reflecting unanimity — that was fashioned to "hold Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi."

The report also comes as Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is scheduled to travel next week for a trip to the Middle East that includes a stop in Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the committee's report.

NPR's Ayesha Rascoe contributed to this report.

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I've Read

Post by Lurker on Mon Mar 04, 2019 1:57 pm

https://jobsanger.blogspot.com/2019/02/british-writer-pens-best-description-of.html?fbclid=IwAR0uNDVWgPdKjzGO9mnqPXSdwcvKFsXIImjv7mzg1H59DeKgSjZXi0kh-ms

Someone on Quora asked “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote the following response:
A few things spring to mind.
Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.
So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.
Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever.
I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.
But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.
Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.
Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.
And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.
Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.
He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.
He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.
That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead.
There are unspoken rules to this stuff – the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a gentleman should, would, could never do – and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down.
So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third – of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think ‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:
• Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.
• You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man.
This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.
After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.
God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.
He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.
In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump.
And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish:
‘My God… what… have… I… created?
If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.

Evangelicals are starting to abandon their churches because of Trump

Post by Lurker on Mon Mar 04, 2019 5:48 pm

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2019/03/evangelicals-starting-abandon-churches-trump/?fbclid=IwAR0p7i3P07VatYqOF2GbKhcbG3alWvlxtT9eZlzarFb0Tn6IpcoZrpvX_5U


One of the great imponderables of the current political scene is how conservative white evangelicals have become so beholden to a thrice-married, casino-owning, scandal-ridden serial philanderer. A group that used to throw around terms like moral majority and traditional values has morphed into a cheerleader for relativism and ends justifying the means.

In short, evangelical churches have become political organizations that happen to have hymnals.

Adding to the rot is the religious right’s own #MeToo problem. Some high-profile cases show that not all ministers preaching about sexual purity have done a great job following their own advice.

All of this may not be a recipe for long-term success.

As it turns out, some believers–especially young believers–want to go to church to worship God, not Trump. The partisanship and hypocrisy on display in the pulpit is causing them to head for the door.

There’s enough of a movement to this end that it actually has a name: ex-vangelicals, or exvies for short.

“These are people who don’t agree with the politics of evangelicals,” Chris Stroop, a journalist who holds a PhD in history from Stanford, told The Guardian. “And really, these days, anyone who doesn’t agree with the politics of evangelicals, but wants to still use that term, are too much of a minority to be relevant to its definition.”

Stroop is himself an exvie, and his Twitter account is a running compendium of the frustration and disgust that exvies feel about the politicization of religion. Stroop created the hashtag #EmptyThePews following the violent white supremacist protests in Charlottesville in 2017.

As a reminder, Trump called the protesters “fine people.”

“Noting that almost nothing will get most evangelicals’ attention apart from declining church attendance, last night I took to Twitter to exhort any wavering members of conservative evangelical churches, or indeed any churches complicit in Trumpism and white supremacy, to take now as a moment to leave those churches in protest, as publicly and vocally as possible,” Stroop wrote at the time.

Stroop extends the reason for leaving to a range of issues, “If you have doubts about your church’s overt or subtle white supremacy, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and general toxicity, now is the time to leave and to do so publicly, in protest,” Stroop said.

Indeed, like Trump, evangelicals are longing to return to the day when those people (which includes you) stayed in their place and the U.S. was a whiter, straighter, male-led nation. It’s the America that’s long gone, but many evangelicals have lived it. According to a Pew survey, half of evangelicals are over the age of 50, and 20 percent are over the age of 65. Only 17 percent are between the age of 18 and 29.

With those numbers, the evangelical movement can’t afford to lose younger members without jeopardizing its future. But as #EmptyThePews shows, the churches stand in a fair way of seeing their numbers continue to shrink. By allying itself with Trump, the evangelical leadership looks like it is playing a winning game. But if it has ransomed its future for political power in the present, it will have proven a losing hand.
