What latest FBI texts actually reveal about Obama, Clinton & Trump probe



 


Thousands of texts between two FBI officials involved in the Clinton email and Trump-Russia probes are being filtered through Washington’s partisan lens, with Republicans seeing treason and Democrats saying they amount to nothing.

Messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau attorney Lisa Page, who were having an extramarital affair at the time, were included in a 54-page appendix to the 25-page report released late Tuesday by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee.

President Donald Trump seemed excited by the discoveries, calling the texts “bombshells.”

By contrast, the Democrats’ media operatives dismissed them as irrelevant, and used the timing of one of the messages to argue it had nothing to do with the Clinton investigation.

So, which is it?

The actual message in question was sent from Strzok to Page on September 2, 2016, wherein he explains he is drafting talking points for D – presumably then-FBI Director James Comey – because “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing,” meaning then-President Barack Obama.

Multiple outlets have pointed out that this couldn’t have had anything to do with the Clinton email investigation, since that had been closed in July. The FBI only reopened the probe in late September, after finding a number of emails from Hillary Clinton’s home server on the laptop of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

It’s worth noting that the text exchange reveals that those emails were found on September 28, 2016, a month before Comey publicly informed Congress about reopening the probe. Comey’s letter came less than two weeks before election day, amid the daily drip of emails from Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s private account being released by WikiLeaks. Clinton and the Democrats later blamed Comey and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe for her loss, but that abruptly stopped after Comey’s firing by President Donald Trump in May 2017.

It is far more likely that Strzok’s text refers to the FBI briefing Obama on the so-called “Russian collusion” probe, the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation into the Clinton camp’s claims that Trump was somehow in league with the Russian government.

Take that, Republicans! Except if that’s the case, it raises even more questions about what Obama knew and when.

Though the committee’s report was titled ‘The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of it,’ it clearly wasn’t limited to it. The Strzok-Page texts included in the appendix continue long after the probe was closed for the second time, with the very last one dated June 25, 2017.

That one, incidentally, has Page telling Strzok “Please don’t ever text me again.” Just over a month later, on July 27, Strzok would be removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s staff and relegated to the FBI’s human resource department, after Mueller was informed of his exchanges with Page.

There is no denying that the texts show the two FBI officials’ absolute disdain for Trump. For example, on election night of November 8, 2016, Strzok describes the results as “f***ing terrifying” and Page responds with “Omg, I am so depressed.”

On November 14, Page references a meeting that makes her angry, because there is “lots of high fallutin’ [sic] national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”

Wasn’t the FBI’s probe into Trump’s “Russia collusion” a national security matter? What, then, was “our task” that Page was referring to? Inquiring minds would want to know.

There are also references to someone possibly within the FBI leaking to the New York Times and the Washington Post, but the names of the suspected leakers have been redacted. Strzok complains on June 15, 2017 about being excluded from a meeting on leaks, even though dealing with those is “what I do for a living.”

This is just two FBI officials whose biases were brought into the open because they carelessly exchanged over 50,000 text messages, plus emails and iMessages. An unknown number of texts between mid-December 2016 and mid-May 2017 were not included in the document, presumably because the FBI told the Senate they had been “misplaced.” The bureau’s inspector-general says he has them, however.

What these texts reveal, or hint at, is not quite a slam-dunk some of President Trump’s supporters would like it to be. But they are hardly nothing, as Democrats claim. In Washington, however, truth still takes a back seat to politics.

The latest insanity of the deranged Left: Alleged child rapist says he "self-identifies" as a nine-year-old, so it’s not really rape


Image: The latest insanity of the deranged Left: Alleged child rapist says he “self-identifies” as a nine-year-old, so it’s not really rape

(Natural News)
A 38-year-old Chicago man who recently confessed to sexually molesting three underage girls between the ages of six and eight appears to be trying to capitalize on liberalism’s acceptance of the “gender spectrum.”

Joseph Roman is reportedly claiming that he self-identifies as a nine-year-old trapped in a grown man’s body, which using liberal logic means he’s simply a misunderstood “trans-age” individual who’s being unfairly persecuted and discriminated against simply for being “different.”

Roman’s multiple acts of sexual assault against young girls aren’t, in fact, crimes, based on liberalism’s ever-evolving tenets of tolerance. They’re just unique expressions of the vast gender spectrum – representing just another “beautiful” shade of color in the rainbow of sexual identities.

This is the conclusion one would have to come to, of course, in order to be consistent in LGBTQ+ ideology. Who’s to say that Roman is a criminal when all he’s doing is “being himself?” We mustn’t judge him or discriminate for embracing his “sexual identity” as a pre-pubescent child, the left-wing narrative seems to claim.

When Roman was caught molesting an eight-year-old girl while her family wasn’t present, he wasn’t committing a heinous act of pedophilia (according to liberal ideology). He was simply “expressing himself,” and doing what comes “naturally” to him, right?

Or how about when he took advantage of another young girl who was staying with him while her hard-working mother worked the night shift? This was simply “kids being kids,” seeing as how Roman self-identifies as a child.

Leftists must be stopped from normalizing pedophilia perversion

If this all sounds nuts to you, or is making your stomach churn: that’s the point. None of these scenarios are actually happening in the case of Joseph Roman. But they very well could in the not-too-distant future, if “gender spectrum” madness takes its progressive course into “trans-ageism” and other bizarre realms.

The good news about Roman is that the courts are still regarding him as a pedophile, as he’s now being charged with a Class X felony – the most serious felony on the books besides first degree murder. But will it always be this way?

As you may recall, a 52-year-old Canadian man decided back in 2016 that he was going to change his gender identity to become a six-year-old “girl” – complete with a child’s dress and a pacifier.

Formerly known as Paul, he suddenly became a “she,” adopting the new name of “Stefonknee Wolscht” as his new monicker. And the family this deranged individual lives with reportedly accepted it all, referring to their new “daughter” as a “little girl” who plays with their other actual children.

In a more sane world, Paul (or whatever he’s calling himself these days) would have been immediately shipped off to a mental institution for deprogramming and serious medical intervention. But in this brave new world of gender “fluidity,” this dress-wearing lunatic is being embraced (at least by some) as just another normal person.

If you can’t see the slippery slope with all of this, then you’re just not paying attention. If Paul or Stefonknee or whatever can simply decide to be a little girl and receive acceptance, then what’s to stop this same unhinged individual from demanding acceptance of whatever form of sexual perversion might go along with it?

It seems as though it’s only a matter of time before such madness is pushed as “normal,” which is why the gender “fluidity” hoax needs to be nipped in the bud now. The truth that must be reiterated is this: There are only two genders, both of which are biologically defined, and age is a fixed thing that can’t be “changed” merely to suit one’s liberal fantasies.

Today Dr. Duke British author and talk show host Andy Hitchcock as his guest for the show. First they discussed the Jewish coup d’etat attempt against President Trump in all its manifestations, including the bogus “Russia probe” and the non-stop media campaign against him.

Then they went into the fascinating attempt by the Jewish media giant Google to genocide whites from the pages of history. Earlier this month we reported on Google image searches for “American investors” or “American scientists” displaying almost entirely black faces. But is it even worse. Typing in “historical Europeans” gives you the images pictured above. Try the same with “white women with their boyfriends,” “white couples,” or just “white people.” “White presidents” gives you a bunch of pictures of Barack Obama, plus Danny Glover and Morgan Freeman, who both played presidents in Hollywood fantasies, along with Senator Cory Booker for good measure. So what are you complaining about, whitey? You don’t even exist! You are just a figment of your sick, racist imagination!

‘I’m going to ruin his life lol’: Teen the latest victim of false rape accusation and police disclosure failings

handcuffed man

    

A teen accused of rape spent three months in custody because police did not disclose texts that proved his innocence. His alleged victim wrote in one message: “I’m not just going to mess his life up, I’m going to ruin it lol.”

Connor Fitzgerald, 19, had the rape charge against him thrown out when prosecutors discovered the texts. Fitzgerald, of South Norwood in south London, lost his job as a BT engineer because of the claim.

The charges were dropped at Croydon Crown Court last week when it emerged that the complainant, who will have lifelong anonymity, had sent texts threatening to destroy him.


Comment: Why doesn’t the complaintant have to suffer the repercussions of a false rape accusation?

“It’s been heart-breaking – It felt like I was guilty until proven innocent,” he told the Sun. “My life has been ruined. I’m scared to even leave the house because everyone thinks I’m a rapist.”

The case is the latest in a string of investigations and trials that have collapsed after police failed to disclose vital evidence to defence lawyers. Fitzgerald’s case comes after the Metropolitan Police were forced to apologize to Liam Allan, 22, for failing to provide crucial text messages during his rape trial, in which he was found not guilty.

Police have admitted that no one will be disciplined over Allan’s botched prosecution. Allan, a criminology student at Greenwich University in London, spent two years on bail accused of rape and sexual assault.

Fitzgerald was arrested in front of his mother and sister in November when police officers raided his home. It followed a complaint that a woman made in June. She alleged Fitzgerald had raped her after a drunken night out.

After the arrest, he was denied bail and was held on remand at HMP High Down, a category-B prison in Banstead, Surrey.

He was reprieved after Fitzgerald’s brother found some of the text messages from the woman on his iCloud account and informed the authorities. Missing texts also showed the woman saying that she had enjoyed the sex.

Fitzgerald says he plans to sue the police and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). “If my brother hadn’t found the texts, I’d have ended up in prison for 12 years or more,” he said.

Earlier this month, a case against Oxford University student Oliver Mears, 19, from Horley, Surrey, was dropped just days before his trial after a “new set of eyes” re-examined the CPS rape case against him.

He was on track to become a successful scientist before being arrested on suspicion of raping and indecently assaulting a woman at a party in July 2015. Mears’ lawyers had complained about a failure to produce appropriate social media evidence, which they believe could have proven the defendant’s innocence.

The case of Samson Makele, 28, was also halted at Snaresbrook Crown Court earlier this month after his defense team unearthed key images from his mobile phone, which had not previously been made available, law firm Hodge Jones and Allen said.

Thousands of rape prosecutions are now being re-examined to see if they have been affected by errors. In London alone, 600 rape cases currently in the final stages before trial are being re-assessed.

UK defence secretary drops latest fear bomb, casually warns Russia is planning mass murder

Why stop there? Why not millions of deaths? Or trillions? Gazillions?

What they [Russia] are looking at doing is they are going to be thinking ‘How can we just cause so much pain to Britain?’” Williamson said. “Damage its economy, rip its infrastructure apart, actually cause thousands and thousands and thousands of deaths, but actually have an element of creating total chaos within the country.

Firstly, congratulations on your ongoing efforts to speak English, Mr Williamson – you’re getting very close to fluency, keep it up.

Secondly, if Russia really wanted to cause chaos in Britain, it wouldn’t worry about damaging some power lines, it would simply donate to the Tory party’s reelection fund.

This isn’t even the first time this week Williamson has been behind scaremongering using Russia. He deployed the nation’s top general on Monday to use Moscow as a reason to push for more funding from the government. Will someone please give the man some money?!

If we’re all honest, there is a good chance that Russia is making contingency plans in the event of conflict, because, y’know, that is what militaries tend to do, especially when the defence secretary of another nation spends his time talking up war against you.

For example, those weapons that Williamson wants to buy for Britain’s military aren’t for international tickling contests. They’re part of contingency plans to cause thousands and thousands and thousands of deaths, should they have to.

The huge aircraft carriers Britain is aiming to put to sea tend to cause a certain amount of chaos and death when they park up next to a sandy country somewhere.

Those trident missiles? Guess what they could do, Gavin.

The talk of war is coming from the West, not the east. Even on BBC Radio 4’s Today program this morning, a reporter suggested that some people may describe

Williamson’s words as “alarmist.” Yeah, a f***ing great klaxon alarm. 

The threat basically suggests Russia wants to unplug Britain. “They are looking at these things because they are saying these are the ways that we can hurt Britain,” Williamson said.

If we lost our interconnectors, which would be something that we know that they are looking at, there would be 3 million homes without electricity. In a few years’ time there will be 8 million homes that would be dependent.

If you could imagine the domestic and industrial chaos that this would actually cause. What they would do is cause the chaos and then step back. This is the real threat that I believe the country is facing at the moment.

It’s a real mystery what Williamson thinks would happen then. After the globe’s biggest financial center has been unplugged, the chaos wouldn’t stop at the English Channel – it would go global, and Russia’s on the globe too.

It cannot be underlined enough that this rhetoric is aimed solely at seeding fear in the government and population. These latest comments are so severe, it suggests that it’s now fair game to say anything about Russia, because no one seems to care whether it’s either true, or acceptable.

Trump-Like Alien Vows ‘Beautiful’ Wall to Keep Out ‘Lying,’ ‘Rapist’ Earthlings on Latest ‘X-Files’

Fox’s The X-Files has been working overtime on their anti-Trump agenda this season, but they’ve truly outdone themselves with this latest episode. In a fictional world full of conspiracy theories – even parallel universes – where people seem to reject objective truth, one thing never changes: Donald Trump must be mocked at all costs.

The January 24 episode “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat” kicks off with a mysterious man named Reggie (Brian Huskey) who claims to know FBI Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) despite the latter not remembering him at all. After Reggie perfectly recalls Mulder’s memory of the first episode of The Twilight Zone he saw as a boy, an episode that does not actually exist, and gives Scully a box of gelatin she remembered but was told by others didn’t exist, both Mulder and Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) begin questioning their collective memories of the past and exploring a phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect.

It turns out there may be a reason for these memory discrepancies besides a parallel universe or people just being, you know, wrong – Reggie tells them about a dubious character known as Dr. They (Stuart Margolin) who is an expert in memory manipulation of the masses. They watch a “phony fake news” video about him – phony fake news, Dr. They explains, is “a presentation of real facts, but in a way that assures no one will believe any of it” – and of course the curious case of President Trump’s inauguration crowd size is brought up, because the left still cares about that.

 

 

Narrator: This is the story of a man named They. Dr. Thaddeus Q. They, a neuroscientist who has discovered a way to manipulate collective memory. Most people have never heard of him, or rather, they have, but he has manipulated their memories to make them forget that they ever have. While working on NASA’s top secret Operation Soy Bomb, involving future, one-way space flights beyond our realm, Dr. They devised a technique to change specific memories, which would allow astronauts to complete their mission without being weighed down by thoughts of life back on Earth. However, Dr. They was fired for also making the astronauts think that they were chimpanzees. He perfected his research while at the U.S. University hospital in Grenada, and now applies his method for a number of unknown, mysterious clients. His memory manipulations have run the gamut from Holocaust denial to corporate product recognition to making people forget he, himself, once starred as an irrepressible genie in a movie called Ka-blaam! Dr. They has not been heard of for many years, but rumors swirled that he was at the last presidential inauguration, where, amongst the hundreds of millions who attended, he was seen occupying the last remaining seat available. And as to his motivations for being there, and what exactly he is up to now, we have no way of knowing. Or perhaps we once did, but have since been made to forget.

Moving on, Reggie becomes more concerned about their memory loss as he reveals in true Twilight Zone-fashion that he was the one who created the X-Files in the first place and there are flashbacks of him being present in every major milestone in the series.

After learning about this potential mind manipulator, Dr. They, Mulder and Scully try to connect the dots and we are treated to a scene of Mulder puzzling over a bulletin board, pointing at a picture of Senator Ted Cruz and mumbling to himself, “So this moron’s father is somehow connected there,” indicating a picture of President John F. Kennedy – alluding to the conspiracy theory mentioned by Trump that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael, was somehow involved in the plot to assassinate JFK. They also fit in a birther mention, another Trump conspiracy theory.

 

 

Mulder: So this moron’s father is somehow connected there. Reggie…(Muttering indistinctly) to Bob Dylan, whose ’98 Grammy performance is remembered by millions because a half naked man with the words “Soy bomb” written on his chest jumped onstage and started dancing like a spaz. But no official video of the incident exists. Did it even happen? Seven years later, the band Eels releases a song, “Whatever Happened to Soy Bomb?” A coded message? Especially because the band’s lead singer, the son of Hugh Everett III, who originated the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics– and I’m right back to parallel universes again. It’s true, Scully, I’ve lost the plot. I can’t find the hidden connections between things anymore. The world has become too crazy for even my conspiratorial powers.

Scully: Maybe you’ve just lost your taste for it, especially after all this “Birther” stuff.

Eventually, Mulder meets personally with Dr. They who tells him the world is in a “post-cover up, post-conspiracy age” where no one cares about the truth or even knows what it means anymore. Apparently, even in The X-Files world, the greatest enemy is not a malevolent extraterrestrial but any blogger on the Internet because people are stupid and will believe anything to the point of electing Donald Trump as president.

 

 

Mulder: As long as the truth gets out…

They: They don’t really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what’s meant by “The truth.”

Mulder: What do you mean?

They: Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what’s real and what’s fake.

Mulder: There’s still an objective truth, an objective reality.

They: So what? I mean, you take this Mandela Effect. Well, in the old days, I would never have come out and admitted to you that, yes, I can change people’s collective memories. And that would have meant that I could control the past. And if that’s true– well, as Orson Welles once said, “He who controls the past, controls the future.”

Mulder: It was George Orwell that said that.

They: Well, for now maybe. Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn’t matter who knows about it. They won’t know whether to believe it or not.

Mulder: To be honest, I’m not believing any of this.

They: Well, believe what you want to believe– that’s what everybody does nowadays anyway. You’re only proving my point, you twit. But, full disclosure, you’re right. I can’t control people’s minds. Although it turns out you don’t really have to. All you need is some people to think it’s possible. And then you’ve sown the seeds of uncertainty. All you really need is a laptop. 

Mulder: So that’s what this has all been about? The spread of online disinformation? 

They: Maybe. You know, our current president once said something truly profound. He said, “Nobody knows for sure.” 

Mulder: What was he referring to? 

They: What does it matter?

But the real low point of the episode, the part that is truly unmatched in its stupidity, comes near the end. After find out that Reggie has escaped from a mental institution, Mulder and Scully nevertheless let him describe “their” last X-File together. In Reggie’s depiction of an X-Files finale, the three come across an alien who gives the rundown on Earth’s status in the universe. After a while, the alien begins to sound oddly familiar.

 

 

Alien: I come before you as a representative of the Intergalactic Union of Sentient Beings from All Known Universes and Beyond. We have been observing your species for many, what you call, “Years.” Our study is now complete. We no longer wish to have any further contact with you. We have returned your music sampler but will no longer tolerate any further efforts on your part to venture beyond your realm. We are building a wall. It will be a beautiful, albeit invisible, electromagnetic wall that will subatomically incinerate any probes you attempt to send beyond your solar system. You’re free to explore Uranus all you want. But we can’t allow your kind to infiltrate the rest of the cosmos. You’re not sending us your best people. You’re bringing drugs. You’re bringing crime. You’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people, but we have no choice. Believe me. For although the rest of the galaxies all have their share of these same problems, we fear you could infect us with the one trait that is unique to Earthlings. You lie. To show there are no hard feelings, we’ve compiled a compendium of answers to any questions you might still have regarding… Anything. Good luck, and good riddance. 

It’s set up just like a Twilight Zone episode with a strange situation (collective memory alteration) and an alien appearing at the very end of the episode. But instead of using it to push a theme or a profound message like the Twilight Zone usually would, they use it as a platform to mock Trump and bemoan a “post-truth” society.

It’s this precise scene that just proves their full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome. The world has given up on truth since Trump. Everything Trump does must be mocked even if it has nothing to do with the plot. We cannot go even one hour without being told how bad Republicans are or that Trump is connected to the Russians.

It’s at this point I have to ask, why? Why create an entire scene that’s meant for nothing but mocking Trump and the wall? Why needlessly bend over backwards to mock ideas held by half of the nation? And most importantly, why do you have to drag The Twilight Zone, one of my favorite shows, down with you?

But we already know the answer to those questions. It’s because they’re liberals and don’t care what comes between them and promoting their agenda, even if beloved television series get dragged in the process.

Monsanto’s latest marketing ploy: Labeling GMOs as “biofortified”


Image: Monsanto’s latest marketing ploy: Labeling GMOs as “biofortified”

(Natural News)
GMOs have been getting a bad name for quite some time now, and it’s hardly surprising given the near-constant stream of evidence showing the harms caused by genetically engineered crops and the pesticides used on them. As people increasingly make an effort to avoid buying these products, Monsanto has come up with a new idea to trick people into forking over their hard-earned money for its health-destroying products.

The Waking Times reports that Monsanto is trying to manipulate the definitions used on food labels in such a way that GMOs could be labeled as “biofortified foods.”

Codex Alimentarius is a collection of codes and guidelines created by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization to standardize world food trade and its production and safety. Codex was mulling a proposal to allow a company to use the term “biofortified” on vegetables that use conventional cross-breeding to increase the content of certain nutrients to help give malnourished populations a nutrition boost.

Monsanto sensed an opportunity here and set out to exploit it. They used their influence to try to convince delegates to have the definition of “biofortified” broadened to include foods that have been genetically modified. The National Health Federation (NHF), which is the only natural health advocate with a seat at Codex, reports that many of the delegates saw right through Monsanto’s attempt to pull the wool over consumers’ eyes, and the move was even denounced during the meeting. Nevertheless, the topic will be debated when the group convenes in Berlin this November under a new chairperson.

NHF President Scott Tips said: “It is a very sad state of affairs where we have come to the point where we must manipulate our natural foods to provide better nutrition all because we have engaged in very poor agricultural practices that have seen a 50% decline in the vitamins and minerals in our foods over the last 50 years. We will not remedy poor nutrition by engaging in deceptive marketing practices and sleight of hand with this definition.”

Monsanto wants to trick people into buying GMO foods

It’s easy to see why Monsanto would be so eager to use this term. The term “bio” is used to denote organic foods in many European countries, and consumers who look out for the “bio” label at the grocery store could easily confuse “biofortified” foods as being the complete opposite of what they truly are and end up buying the very thing they were trying to avoid in the first place. Indeed, the EU has raised an objection on the grounds that the term would confuse Europeans, and several EU counties have been vocal in supporting a more restrictive use of the term.

Even in the U.S., where the term “organic” is used instead, many people would construe this label as something positive, especially given its implication that a food has additional nutrients.

Creative labeling nothing new when it comes to unhealthy food

If Monsanto is successful, it will hardly be the first time that something undesirable masqueraded as something far more appealing. For example, consider the term “biosolids,” which are used to grow non-organic crops. On the surface, it sounds like something relatively innocuous, but it’s actually a euphemism for “human sewage sludge” – a nicer way of saying that the food is grown with feces and other disgusting things we flush down the toilet.

Then there are the sneaky ways of hiding sugar on food labels by calling it names like evaporated cane juice, organic brown rice syrup, barley malt, or dried oat syrup.

Decoding food labels already requires a sharp eye and extensive knowledge of the deceptive marketing tactics used by food companies, and a move like this will only muddy the waters even further. We can only hope the objections from the EU and others will be successful in preventing this from going any further. Even if their attempt fails, however, it’s clear that Monsanto has no intention to stop trying to trick consumers using every means possible.

Deconstructing Nikki Haley’s Latest Rant

Deconstructing Nikki Haley’s Latest Rant



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



She makes painful listening, a reckless war-mongering neocon extremist – deploring world peace and stability, raging for greater US aggression than what’s ongoing.



Her remarks during Thursday’s Security Council meeting on non-proliferation of WMDs were disgraceful like all her rants – a litany of Big Lies, suppression of hard truths.



Haley: “The United States continues to lead in efforts to stop the spread of nuclear weapons.” 



“We play a leading role ensuring the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1540, a landmark agreement that this Council unanimously adopted in 2004.” 



“Together with our partners, we are working to assist states and international organizations in their efforts to prevent non-state actors from developing and acquiring nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons and their delivery systems.”



Fact: America is the world’s leading proliferator of WMDs, aiding ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorists it supports in their use of CWs.



Fact: SC Resolution 1540 requires all UN member states develop and enforce legal and regulatory measures against the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons, along with their delivery systems – especially preventing their spread to non-state actors. Washington flagrantly breached it.



Haley: “There is no greater threat to the international nuclear nonproliferation regime than that posed by North Korea.”



Fact: Far and away, America is the world’s greatest threat to peace, stability and security. Its reckless aggression threatens everyone everywhere.



Fact: North Korea threatens no other nations. It continues developing nuclear and ballistic missile deterrents because of feared US aggression – solely for defense, not offense.



Haley: “We will continue to work with our partners on the Security Council in pursuit of a peaceful, diplomatic solution to” the crisis on the Korean peninsula.



Fact: The Trump administration rejects diplomacy, urged and supported by China and Russia. It favors bullying, brinkmanship and belligerence – threatening possible nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.



Haley: Iran “is the leading cause of instability in an unstable part of the world. It supports terrorists, proxy militants, and murderers like Bashar al Assad.” 



“It provides ballistic missiles in violation of UN arms embargoes. Its proxies launch them at civilian targets, as we saw when Houthi militias in Yemen fired an Iranian-supplied missile at an airport in Riyadh.” 



“And when the Iranian people protest their money being diverted to terrorists, the regime arrests them and kills them.”



Fact: Iran supports regional peace and stability. It threatens no other nations, urging cooperation with them.



Fact: Assad is Syria’s overwhelmingly popular legitimate leader. He’s protecting his people, not murdering them – Washington responsible for years of war and carnage in Syria.



Fact: Iran supplied ballistic missiles to no one.



Fact: Its security forces ended days of US-orchestrated protests in Tehran and other Iranian cities nonviolently. Provocateur protesters were responsible for around 20 deaths.



Fact: Security Council Resolution 2231 endorsed the JCPOA Iran nuclear deal. IAEA monitors affirmed Tehran’s strict adherence to its principles numerous times.



Fact: Haley lied claiming Iran “repeatedly violated” its principles. She’s a serial liar, rejecting truth-telling on vital issues.



Haley: “(T)he United States continues to uphold its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”



Fact: Obama and Trump administrations flagrantly violated its letter and spirit numerous times, including by imposing illegal sanctions on Iran, aiming to crush its economy.



Haley: Syria “repeatedly used chemical weapons against its own people.”



Fact: No evidence suggests it used CWs any time during years of war. US-supported terrorists used them numerous times.



Haley: “The United States works hard to ensure the nonproliferation of” WMDs.



Fact: Washington is the world’s leading proliferator of these weapons.



As US envoy to the UN, Haley is a key advocate for its destructive imperial agenda, its endless wars of aggression, its mass slaughter and destruction, its rage to conquer and control – no matter the human cost.
