Trump Offers $430,000 Of His Own Money For Aides' Legal Fees In Russian Probe

Donald Trump is offering at least $430,000 of his own funds to help defray the legal costs of aides amid federal probes into Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump pledged the funds after news surfaced that the Republican National Committee has paid approximately the same amount in legal fees for Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., Axios and The Washington Post reported.

Trump’s money won’t likely be used to reimburse the committee, the Post reported. Money will “defray the costs of legal fees for his associates, including former and current White House aides,” sources told Axios.

Few details are yet known about Trump’s move, such as which staffers’ costs may be covered. None of the money will be used to pay legal costs for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign after less than a month in his post. He is refusing to accept any funds from Trump or the RNC, sources told Axios. The New Yorker reported last month that two of Flynn’s siblings had launched a legal defense fund for him.

In March, Flynn’s lawyer said he would testify before federal investigators in exchange for immunity, and that he “has a story to tell.” 

Trump’s payment plan raises ethical questions. For one, an aide who accepted the money would be in a difficult position if he or she had pertinent information to share with a federal investigator about Trump or his son.

Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampell questioned Trump’s motives.

“Maybe he feels guilty that his associates and aides are now having to bear the burdens of these bills,” she told MSNBC. “Whether or not it’s his motivation, this would be a very effective way to keep them in line and keep them in hock to him.”

She added: ’If he doesn’t want people who know where the bodies are buried — if there’s bodies — to flip on him and disclose that information … offering to pay legal bills is an effective way to keep pulling the strings.”

Walter Shaub, the former director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, also underscored in a tweet the complicated conflicts such payments could trigger.

It’s unclear if the president will begin paying his own legal fees and those of his son, or will continue relying on funds from the RNC.

Trump arrojó papel toalla: un caso perfecto de manipulación mediática liberal

Nunca he recibido tantos insultos en mi vida, como cuando participé de voluntario en la visita del presidente Trump para la entrega de suministros a víctimas del huracán María en la Iglesia Calvary Chapel en Puerto Rico.

Como resultado de toda la información errónea y distorsionada que se ha difundido por los medios acerca de lo que hizo el presidente Trump durante su visita del 3 de octubre, he decidido ofrecer este relato de primera mano, con la confianza de que llegue a quienes criticaron sin conocer todos los hechos, así como a quienes decidieron deliberadamente presentar sólo una breve escena del acto para justificar su odio y oposición política contra Donald Trump.

Los múltiples medios de comunicación que no informaron con veracidad sobre la distribución de agua, alimentos y otras provisiones a 300 víctimas del huracán durante la visita del presidente, son culpables de infundir la mentira y la manipulación. Obviamente su propósito fue inflamar la opinión pública contra el presidente, lo que a su vez fomentó los insultos subsiguientes por parte de personas que creyeron la publicación falsa y deliberadamente incompleta.

Para dejar el registro claro, al inicio en su visita a la iglesia Calvary Chapel en Puerto Rico, el presidente se dedicó a saludar a la gente, a tirarse fotos con algunos afectados mientras estaba cerca de las mesas de distribución de suministros. Luego se dedicó a entregar esas provisiones a los damnificados personalmente. Trump estuvo la gran mayoría de su tiempo entregando suministros a los afectados. Casi al final de la visita, y después de haber dedicado varios minutos a entregar provisiones, como pollo enlatado, linternas eléctricas, arroz y agua, entonces fue cuando por solo 30 segundos arrojó rollos de papel toalla a las personas que estaban más atrás en el público y que no habían podido acercarse hasta donde él estaba distribuyendo los suministros.

La realidad es que el presidente arrojó rollos de toallas de papel porque vio que había un montón de gente detrás de las primeras filas que no podían llegar hasta él para recibir nada. El presidente quería incluirlos, puesto que el acto era para distribuir provisiones. El público de atrás inclusive se lo pidió, pues no podían llegar hasta el presidente. Él no iba a arrojarles botellas de agua o comida enlatada, que podían lastimar a alguien, sino que lo hizo con rollos de toallas de papel, que no iban herir a nadie.

Aunque esto fue presentado por los medios como una muestra de desprecio hacia los puertorriqueños que estaban allí, en realidad fue un acto de frustración, debido a la desorganización del evento. Él quería llegar a tanta gente como fuera posible con las provisiones, pero no estaba en el lugar adecuado para hacerlo. Desde donde yo me encontraba, tomé fotos de él en las cuales se le ve claramente frustrado por la forma desorganizada en que se llevó a cabo el evento.

A pesar de su buena intención, fue una acción políticamente imprudente de su parte arrojar rollos de toallas de papel al público. Sabiendo que la mayor parte de la prensa aprovecha cada oportunidad para presentarlo de la peor manera posible, el presidente debió haberse percatado de que esos 30 segundos la prensa lo seleccionaría como la imagen para definir y moldear la opinión pública sobre su visita a Puerto Rico, de la forma más negativa posible. Y fue exactamente lo que ocurrió, la poca independencia de criterio e imparcialidad que existe en la prensa se apoderó de ella y eligió concentrarse casi enteramente en los 30 segundos del papel toalla. El resto de la visita a Trump a Puerto Rico prácticamente se quedó en el olvido, como si nunca hubiera ocurrido.

La mayoría de lo que publicaron los medios se tornó en lo que el presidente Trump llama “noticias falsas” o “fake news“. Y me apena decir que en este caso estoy de acuerdo con el presidente. La descripción y publicación distorsionada deliberadamente de su visita a la iglesia Calvary Chapel en Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, fue la definición perfecta de #FakeNews. Yo estuve allí y puedo dar testimonio de que en vez de cubrir la totalidad de la visita del presidente con honestidad, casi toda la prensa eligió cubrir sólo la parte de su visita que encajaba en su deseo de mostrarlo bajo la peor manera posible.

Aunque me critican por hablar de esto, tengo el deber de defender siempre la verdad, especialmente cuando tengo conocimiento personal y prueba de los hechos. Piensen lo que quieran de mí, pero no voy a mentir para ganar el favor de nadie. Trump pasó varios minutos distribuyendo personalmente una variedad de suministros a la gente, y alrededor de 30 segundos de ese tiempo involucró arrojar rollos de toallas de papel, para llegar a quienes se encontraban más atrás en el salón. Esa es la verdad. Si después de enterarse de esto, usted prefiere seguir creyendo la versión distorsionada de la visita de Trump que les presentó la prensa manipuladora, eso es problema de ustedes.

En una situación como la que me encontré ese día en esa iglesia durante la visita del presidente, ¿qué yo podía hacer? La desorganización del evento hizo prácticamente imposible que voluntarios como yo pudiéramos ayudar. Inclusive, vale la pena puntualizar que nunca he favorecido la candidatura de Donald Trump, ni tengo contratos con el gobierno, como tampoco otros intereses que proteger. Soy simplemente un ciudadano como cualquier otro, que acudió a participar en un esfuerzo humanitario para distribuir provisiones a unas 300 víctimas del huracán María, junto al presidente de los Estados Unidos.

Nancy Pelosi Boasts of Correcting President Trump at White House Dinner on ‘Chelsea’

In the October 20th episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Showing Up Matters”, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi talked about a White House dinner she recently attended. She demurely admitted she was the only woman at the table of Congressional and Senate leaders and then she proudly boasted that she corrected President Trump as he claimed to be the winner of the popular vote in last November’s election.

This dinner included members of President Trump’s cabinet who Pelosi trashed by saying they didn’t bother to listen to her. She said they were talking over her so she said, “What does a woman have to do to be listened to around here?” Trump, however, did listen to her, she admitted. She went on to declare that it is common for men on the floor of the House and in hearings to cut off women and “sometimes they just don’t want to hear what we have to say. That is it.” Really? The times I have seen women being “cut off” were for violations of decorum, same as men would be “cut off”. She says she corrected Trump at the table when she told him he didn’t win the popular vote but he reasoned that he believes that some 3 – 5 million voters “didn’t vote legally.”

Saying “we” (women) are at a pivotal point, she praised the Women’s March last January and called it “spontaneous, it was organic, it sprang from women wanting to go out there and talk about a woman’s right to choose, women’s health, issues that related to climate, gun safety, you name it.” Well, I think that was as good of a laundry list of standard leftist issues as any.

She spoke of the need to show up at rallies and to contact members of Congress about issues up for votes. She tossed out the quote from Abraham Lincoln that “public sentiment is everything” as it pertains to public opinion influencing legislation. At least she did credit Lincoln. She thinks the Democrats have the votes for legislation on DACA and gun control to go their way, if only Speaker Ryan would bring these items up for votes. Bless her heart.

Handler was eager to chime in that she is now working with EMILY’s List and devoting her life to political activism. To encourage more women to run for political office and be politically active, Pelosi says we need to “increase the level of civility in our discussions and lower the role of money in politics.” Lol! Remember when Pelosi referred to Tea Party movement as “astroturf” and accusing them of carrying swastikas? Do as I say, not as I do, I guess.

Of impeachment, Pelosi now says she has another ‘I’ word – intervention. “I think an intervention is really needed here. It’s about the law and what happens and that’s what you have to …The facts and the law and that equals grounds for impeachment or not. But I do believe that the president knows what he’s talking about and that’s why I say an intervention.” What? Talk about an answer full of jibberish. She never bothered to say what laws she thinks have been broken.

Pelosi’s parting message was to tell women to “know your power.” Chelsea chimed in with, “Girls need to stick together.” She was no doubt thinking of liberal girls because conservative, pro-life women weren’t even invited to that “spontaneous” Women’s March after the election.

Trump Just Announced US to Release 3,000 Never Before Seen Documents On JFK Assassination

KennedyKennedy

Washington, D.C. — (ZH) Following years of delays, President Trump announced on Twitter on Saturday morning that he will allow the release of more than 3,000 of classified documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The unexpected announcement means that a trove of previously unseen documents will be released by the National Archives by October 26.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump tweeted.

In 1992, Congress mandated that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, unless the president asserts that doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The still-secret documents include more than 3,000 that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been released previously, but with redactions, according to CBS. Trump’s decision means that thousands of formerly classified documents related to Kennedy’s assassination will be unveiled next week in compliance with the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which states that the federal government must release them by Oct. 26, 2017.

JFK scholars hope the new documents may provide insight into assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to Mexico City weeks before the killing, during which he visited the Soviet and Cuban embassies. Oswald’s stated reason for going was to get visas that would allow him to enter Cuba and the Soviet Union, according to the Warren Commission, the investigative body established by President Lyndon B. Johnson, but much about the trip remains unknown.

Among other protected information slated for release are details about the arrangements the U.S. entered into with the Mexican government that allowed it to have close surveillance of those and other embassies, said Tunheim, a federal judge in Minnesota. Jefferson Morley, a former Washington Post reporter who has written extensively about the Kennedy assassination papers, said the remaining documents might include files on senior CIA officers from the 1960s who likely knew details of the agency’s surveillance of Oswald in Mexico City.

“What’s in those files could tell us how those men did their jobs,” said Morley, who wrote a 2008 book on the agency’s Mexico City station chief.  “Is there JFK material in there? Could be. There might be stuff on why we were interested in the Cuban consulate, how we surveilled the consulate, how we did our audio work, and how did we recruit spies there? We might understand much better why they were watching Oswald.”

 

Morley is also eager to read a never-before released transcript of testimony given by James Angleton, the CIA’s legendary chief of counterintelligence from 1954 to 1975, to senators in September 1975 investigating abuses committed by the intelligence community.

 

The files on Angleton and the other CIA officers are important because “these are not just major players in the agency’s history, they are major players in the Oswald story,” said Morley, who has a new book on Angleton, “The Ghost,” coming out Oct. 24. “Oswald didn’t come out of nowhere. Angelton was targeting him for intelligence purposes at the Cuban consulate in Mexico City.”

Not everyone is happy, however, and many experts fear that such a large release of secret JFK assassination documents will spur “a new generation of conspiracy theories.”

Additionally, Politico reported that Trump administration officials were concerned that some of the documents created in the 1990s contain information on recent U.S. intelligence programs and might not be released. Nonetheless, White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said that the White House is aiming “to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released to the public” under the act.

Overnight, the WaPo confirmed, reporting that President Trump is being urged to withhold the last batch of government documents that could shed more light on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

A National Security Council official said in an interview that federal agencies are asking the president not to release an unknown number of files held by the National Archives and Records Administration related to Kennedy’s murder.

 

“There will be a request made to the President to withhold documents, absolutely no question about that,” said the NSC official, who agreed to be interviewed only on the condition of anonymity. “There are definitely files related to sources and methods that agencies are asking to withhold.”

 

The official declined to identify which agencies are asking Trump to keep some of the Kennedy files secret, saying only that the security council is coordinating the requests.

Meanwhile, as we reported last week, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone was urging Trump to release the files, and said in a recent interview he felt “optimistic” that Trump would make it happen. Stone claimed that the CIA is urging President Donald Trump to delay disclosing some of the files for another 25 years. “They must reflect badly on the CIA even though virtually everyone involved is long dead.”

Earlier this month, Roger Stone, the political consultant and Trump confidante, reported on his website, “Stone Cold Truth,” that CIA Director Mike Pompeo wants the president to delay the record release for another 25 years. Stone, who co-authored a best-selling book in 2013 called, “The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ,” said in a Post interview that he opposes any delay.

 

What is the government hiding?” he asked. “The issue now is transparency.”

Earlier this week, Stone said that he spoke to Trump himself and urged the president to release all the documents.

“Yesterday, I had the opportunity to make the case directly to the president of the United States by phone as to why I believe it is essential that he release the balance of the currently redacted and classified JFK assassination documents,” Stone said. “A very good White House source — not the President — told me that the Central Intelligence Agency, specifically CIA director Mike Pompeo, has been lobbying the President furiously not to release these documents. Why? Because I believe they show that Oswald was trained, nurtured and put in place by the Central Intelligence Agency.” 

Stone said it wasn’t clear what Trump will do. “He did not tip off his current decision,” Stone said. “We’re going to have to wait . . . but he was all ears. He took it all in . . . I think he’s going to do the right thing.” This morning it appears that Trump has decided to side with Stone over the arguments from the NSC and various other “covert” U.S. agencies.

Trump Says He’ll Allow Release of Kennedy Assassination Files






Trump Says He’ll Allow Release of Kennedy Assassination Files


October 21st, 2017

My guess is that anything released will support the official narrative, but… Maybe not.

Via: AFP:

US President Donald Trump said Saturday he will allow long blocked secret files on the assassination of John F Kennedy to be opened to the public for the first time.

The November 22, 1963 assassination — an epochal event in modern US history — has spawned multiple theories challenging the official version that Kennedy was killed a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald.

So the release of all the secret documents has been eagerly anticipated by historians and conspiracy theorists alike.

Trump’s announcement followed reports that not all the files would be released, possibly to protect still relevant intelligence sources and methods.

But Trump appears to have decided otherwise.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” he said in a tweet.

The files are due to be opened in their entirety Thursday, nearly 54 years after Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas — unless the US president decides otherwise.

Millions of classified Kennedy files have been made public under a 1992 law passed in response to a surge in public demand for disclosure in the wake of Oliver Stone’s conspiracy-heavy movie on the assassination.

But the law placed a 25-year hold on a small percentage of the files that expires October 26.

Some reports put the number withheld at 3,100. Tens of thousands of files that had been released with portions blacked out are also set to be fully declassified.

Blaming Russia for the Internet ‘Sewer’


https://consortiumnews.com/2017/10/18/blaming-russia-for-the-internet-sewer/


October 18, 2017



Exclusive: As the Russia-gate hysteria spirals down from the implausible to the absurd, almost every bad thing is blamed on the Russians, even how they turned the previously pristine Internet into a “sewer,” reports Robert Parry.



By Robert Parry


With the U.S. government offering tens of millions of dollars to combat Russian “propaganda and disinformation,” it’s perhaps not surprising that we see “researchers” such as Jonathan Albright of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University making the absurd accusation that the Russians have “basically turned [the Internet] into a sewer.”



Tomb of the Unknown Soldier outside the Kremlin wall in Moscow, Dec. 6, 2016. (Photo by Robert Parry)


I’ve been operating on the Internet since 1995 and I can assure you that the Internet has always been “a sewer” — in that it has been home to crazy conspiracy theories, ugly personal insults, click-bait tabloid “news,” and pretty much every vile prejudice you can think of. Whatever some Russians may or may not have done in buying $100,000 in ads on Facebook (compared to its $27 billion in annual revenue) or opening 201 Twitter accounts (out of Twitter’s 328 million monthly users), the Russians are not responsible for the sewage coursing through the Internet.


Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans and pretty much every other segment of the world’s population didn’t need Russian help to turn the Internet into an informational “sewer.” But, of course, fairness and proportionality have no place in today’s Russia-gate frenzy.


After all, your “non-governmental organization” or your scholarly “think tank” is not likely to get a piece of the $160 million that the U.S. government authorized last December to counter primarily Russian “propaganda and disinformation” if you explain that the Russians are at most responsible for a tiny trickle of “sewage” compared to the vast rivers of “sewage” coming from many other sources.


If you put the Russia-gate controversy in context, you also are not likely to have your “research” cited by The Washington Post as Albright did on Thursday because he supposedly found some links at the home-décor/fashion site Pinterest to a few articles that derived from a few of the 470 Facebook accounts and pages that Facebook suspects of having a link to Russia and shut them down. (To put that 470 number into perspective, Facebook has about two billion monthly users.)


Albright’s full quote about the Russians allegedly exploiting various social media platforms on the Internet was: “They’ve gone to every possible medium and basically turned it into a sewer.”


But let’s look at the facts. According to Facebook, the suspected “Russian-linked” accounts purchased $100,000 in ads from 2015 to 2017 (compared to Facebook’s annual revenue of about $27 billion), with only 44 percent of those ads appearing before the 2016 election and many having little or nothing to do with politics, which is curious if the Kremlin’s goal was to help elect Donald Trump and defeat Hillary Clinton.


Even former Clinton political strategist Mark Penn has acknowledged the absurdity of thinking that such piddling amounts could have any impact on a $2.4 billion presidential campaign, plus all the billions of dollars worth of free-media attention to the conventions, debates, etc. Based on what’s known about the Facebook ads, Penn calculated that “the actual electioneering [in battleground states] amounts to about $6,500.”


In a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Monday, Penn added, “I have 40 years of experience in politics, and this Russian ad buy mostly after the election anyway, simply does not add up to a carefully targeted campaign to move voters. It takes tens of millions of dollars to deliver meaningful messages to the contested portion of the electorate.”


Puppies and Pokemon


And, then there is the curious content. According to The New York Times, one of these “Russian-linked” Facebook groups was dedicated to photos of “adorable puppies.” Of course, the Times tried hard to detect some sinister motive behind the “puppies” page.

Similarly, CNN went wild over its own “discovery” that one of the “Russian-linked” pages offered Amazon gift cards to people who found “Pokémon Go” sites near scenes where police shot unarmed black men — if you would name the Pokémon after the victims.


“It’s unclear what the people behind the contest hoped to accomplish, though it may have been to remind people living near places where these incidents had taken place of what had happened and to upset or anger them,” CNN mused, adding:


“CNN has not found any evidence that any Pokémon Go users attempted to enter the contest, or whether any of the Amazon Gift Cards that were promised were ever awarded — or, indeed, whether the people who designed the contest ever had any intention of awarding the prizes.”

Trump to allow release of classified JFK assassination files









 






US President Donald Trump says he will allow the release of classified documents relating to the assassination of President John F Kennedy, shot dead while visiting Dallas, Texas in 1963.

The documents were due to be disclosed by the National Archives later this month, however there were some media reports that Trump would not approve the publication of all of the files.

In a tweet sent early Saturday, Trump indicated he will allow the release, “subject to the receipt of further information”. It’s not clear what “further information” the president is referring to.

In 1992, then-US President George H. W. Bush signed into law the John F Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, compelling the US National Archives to publish documents surrounding Kennedy’s death within 25 years.

However, there was a get-out clause in the act which stated public disclosure could be delayed if it threatened “military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or conduct of foreign relations.”

A report by Politico Magazine, which cited Trump administration insiders, suggested the president could block some documents from seeing the light of day. A US government spokesperson reportedly told the magazine that the White House is working “to ensure the maximum amount of data can be released to the public”.

During the presidential election campaign last year, Trump alleged that the father of rival Republican candidate Ted Cruz had links to Kennedy’s supposed killer Lee Harvey Oswald. The accusation stemmed from an image printed on the front of the National Inquirer, which purported to show Rafael Cruz handing out pro-Cuba fliers alongside Oswald in 1963.

“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being, you know, shot,” Trump alleged on Fox News. “Nobody even brings it up. They don’t even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it.”

Trump doubled down on the conspiracy in July 2016, saying that Cruz never denied his father met Oswald. Ted Cruz addressed the topic in May that year by saying that his father was also “secretly Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa is buried in his backyard.”

Trump demands to know: Who paid for the 'Trump dossier'?

President Trump is wondering who paid for the controversial dossier that made salacious but unverified claims about his ties to Russia a day after two executives from a Washington research firm that helped produce the document refused to answer questions in a private meeting with the House Intelligence Committee.

“Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th,” Trump tweeted on Thursday. “Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?”

According to Bloomberg, the executives, Fusion GPS partners Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan, invoked their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination during their session with the House panel probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Their lawyer, Joshua Levy, told the news service that a “Trump cabal has carried out a campaign to demonize our client for having been tied to the Trump dossier.”

The dossier, which was prepared by former British spy Christopher Steele, was published online shortly before Trump’s inauguration. It contained allegations that Trump’s associates colluded with the Kremlin and claimed that Russians held compromising material on Trump.

Both Trump and then-President Barack Obama were briefed on its contents by intelligence officials. After the dossier was published, Trump vigorously denied the allegations, calling them “fake news.”

Steele began working on the opposition-research document in June 2016 for Fusion GPS on behalf of a Democratic client. According to the Washington Post, the firm “began doing Trump research in early 2016, before it hired Steele, on behalf of a Republican opposed to the businessman’s candidacy.”

In February the Post reported that the FBI, which had previously hired Steele to research corruption in professional soccer, had reached an agreement shortly before the election to pay him to continue his work on Trump. But the bureau did not pay Steele after the dossier leaked online.

Exclusive: Trump Looking to Release JFK Assassination Files

President Trump is expected to declassify CIA documents relating to the JFK assassination which may finally debunk the official story that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

The president spoke to Infowars correspondent Roger Stone on Thursday about releasing more JFK files to the public to the dismay of the CIA.

“He was all ears,” Stone said. “The president believes in transparency… he believes in the public’s right to know.”

“I am optimistic that the president is going to do the right thing.”

The JFK Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 mandated that the assassination records would be released in late 2017 unless “the president certifies that continued postponement is made necessary by an identifiable harm… of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in disclosure.”

There’s no indication that President Trump will block the release.

“Now, a very good White House source – not the president – told me that CIA Director Mike Pompeo has been lobbying the president to furiously not to release these documents.”

“Why? Because I believe they show Oswald was trained, nurtured and put into place by the CIA.”

“It sheds very bad light on the Deep State, the very same characters trying to take down our president right now,” Stone added.

Kim Jong Un begs Australia to tell Trump to leave North Korea alone









 






North Korea has sent a letter filled with Trump-bashing to the Australian Parliament, urging MPs to condemn Washington’s saber-rattling, while at the same time assuring them of its “highest consideration.”

The letter was penned by North Korea’s Foreign Affairs Committee and sent to Australia’s Indonesian embassy late September, but was received by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop only last week.

The letter starts with the North Korean embassy extending compliments to the Australian Parliament and saying that it has dispatched similar letters to the lawmakers of other countries.

The thrust of the letter is fervent criticism of US President Donald Trump’s declared principle of putting America first “at the expense of the whole world.”

“The US brought to their knees those countries… with its nuclear stick and force, and then cooked up the illegal ‘sanctions resolution,’” the letter reads.

The committee goes on to note that North Korea “has emerged a fully-fledged nuclear power,” calling Trump’s threat to annihilate it a “big miscalculation” and urging the MPs to reject “heinous and reckless moves” that aim to “drive the world into a horrible nuclear disaster.”

Foreign Minister Bishop, who revealed the existence of the letter on Thursday, argued that this unheard-of way of communication means that Pyongyang has been driven into the corner by international sanctions.

“I think that this shows they are feeling desperate, feeling isolated, trying to demonize the US, trying to divide the international community,” Bishop said, noting that it is the first letter on record that any Australian foreign minister has received from the North Korean authorities.

Bishop praised Trump’s tough stance on North Korea, arguing that it made China review its policy towards its troubled neighbor, and more strictly enforce the sweeping economic sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council in response to North Korea’s missile and nuclear program.

Last week, North Korea warned Australia that “it will not be able to avoid a disaster” if it continues doing the bidding of the US by “imposing military, economic and diplomatic pressure” on Pyongyang. The damning message came on the heels of Bishop’s visit to a border village in South Korea on October 11, whence she called on the international community to step up pressure on North Korea.

Accusing Australia of “preparing a war on the Korean Peninsula,” Pyongyang stated that it betrays its own national interests by playing sidekick in “Trump’s selfish ‘America First’ Policy.”

Australia agreed to host 1,250 US Marines and 13 aircraft at Darwin in April, in the largest deployment of US forces in Australia since 2011.

Early October Australia announced it would fit its new warships with US-produced Aegis anti-missile defense systems to defend itself from long-range missiles in light of the growing threat from “rogue states.” The construction of the frigates is set for completion in 2020.
