Donald Trump won and so far so great !

President-Elect Donald Trump knows what he promised to the American people and he’s keeping those promises.
Trump just tapped the country’s biggest hard-liner on illegal immigration, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, to run his immigration team.

Washington Post reports:
One of the nation’s leading immigration hard-liners is working with Donald Trump’s presidential transition team.

Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, told a Wichita-based television station he was consulting with Trump insiders on the future of U.S. immigration policy.

“I’m a member of the immigration policy transition team, and there’s going to be a lot to do there, in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametrical opposites when it comes to immigration policy, so there will be a lot of changes,” Kobach told KWCH.

Rather than coming to Washington for meetings in the official transition offices, Kobach said he was conducting most of his work remotely. An email to Kobach seeking further detail was not returned.
“The work I do with the transition team is just conference calls and email, so it’s actually people all over the country who are experts in immigration policy and immigration law just working together and talking on the phone,” he said.

Trump’s America is going to be law and order and prosperous for everyone!

WOW ! This is definately going to disrupt the current destructive status quo.Guliani I believe will be a great director of the CIA. Obama I believe was the CIA's boy, Trump will hopefully bring the presidency back to what it is supposed to be and the CIA SUBORDINATE TO THE PRESIDENT.

This Can't End Well: Serious Conflict Between Trump, CIA 'Almost Inevitable'© AFP 2016/ SAUL LOEBUS00:00 12.11.2016(updated 00:13 12.11.2016) Get short URLTopic: Donald Trump Elected 45th US President (253) 348775417The US Central Intelligence Agency is expected to be one of the key institutions to face major reform by President-elect Donald Trump. Not discounting the fact that such reforms are long overdue, Russian intelligence experts warn that a serious conflict between Trump and the CIA is now all but inevitable.
Since Trump's unexpected victory on Tuesday, a number of statements have already been made by anonymous intelligence officials expressing their 'concern' about the prospects for their agencies under a Trump administration.

US Intelligence Officials Concerned Over Trump PresidencyConcerns include the President-elect's supposed lack of experience in dealing with classified information, and fears that he may use secret information in an "unreasonable" manner.

Such fears were made public just as Trump was expected to start receiving daily intelligence briefings. However, as the Russian online newspaper Vzglyad pointed out, Trump had begun familiarizing himself with such information going back to late August.

Accordingly, the paper suggested that this "burst of emotion" among intelligence officials is based more on concerns over the fate of their agencies and positions than it is on the nation's secrets being transferred to Trump's inexperienced hands. And this is particularly true of the CIA.

"The new administration seems set on not only replacing the director of the CIA, but conducting deep reform of the entire intelligence system, which could entail dismissals and a change in the style of the agency's work; and there's no guarantee that the changes will be to the CIA's advantage," Vzglyad contributor Evgeny Krutikov pointed out.

In fact, the journalist suggested, "it's clear that in for the near future, the work of the agency will face a state of disorientation and near-paralysis." This is connected in large part to Trump's dilemma about choosing a new CIA director.

At the moment, Trump ally and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is rumored to be the only candidate for the post, which is significant, according to Vzglyad, because many of the other key administration posts have upwards of three or four candidates.

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani smiles as he takes the stage to speak before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at an event on October 15, 2016 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire
"Giuliani has a very particular experience with the intelligence community: his participation in the special committee to investigate the 9/11 terrorist attacks ended in scandal. Specifically, the mayor accused the CIA and the FBI of 'excessive secrecy'; the details remain a secret, but most likely came down to the CIA not wanting to disclose their sources with the civilian administration of the city of New York at the end of its term. Their refusal to cooperate provoked a wave of criticism, in which Giuliani himself was actively involved."

Accordingly, the paper suggested that Giuliani's appointment as CIA director would almost guarantee immediate conflict, since it would reopen old wounds. In any case, the fact that Giuliani is also rumored to be considered for the post of attorney general, where he has considerably more experience, leaves an open question about which post he will actually assume.

Pentagon Says 'No Direct Contact Yet' From Trump Team on TransitionAt the same time, Vzglyad recalled that that Giuliani has repeatedly demonstrated a tendency toward extreme hawkishness in foreign policy. In recent years, for instance, he openly called on the Obama administration to wage a war against Iran. "If under his watch the CIA begins a hunt across the globe for 'the killers of Americans'…the agency will quickly turn into an office for organizing subversive operations – that is, a return to the fiery days of the 1960s and 70s."

Having said that, the paper also noted that "if President-elect Trump wants to shake up the entire US intelligence system from top to bottom, Giuliani would make a perfect fit. He looks at the 'intelligence bureaucracy' – a whole layer of career administrators, with disdain, as a group which parasitically takes advantage of the closed nature of the intelligence system. Of course, in the short term, reform Giuliani-style would paralyze the agency, which already isn't in the best shape."

However, if the new director's tenure starts off with a series of mass layoffs and demotions, this could result in a whole army of disaffected former spies who could go on to sell US secrets to its enemies. "An aggrieved professional, like a veteran who has been passed up, is the most terrible weapon in the intelligence war," Vzglyad stressed.

Effectively, the paper suggested that whatever he ends up doing, Trump faces a paradox: "either he will have to whip the agency into submission, imposing new rules of the game, or guarantee himself an army of potential saboteurs in his backyard."

Vzglyad recalled that "formally, the CIA had declared its neutrality during the election campaign. At the same time, someone had [secretly] accompanied [Trump adviser] Carter Page during his trip to Moscow, and then handed the story to the American press. At the same time, the CIA has a very well-developed instinct for self-preservation, and sees in Trump an irrational threat to their well-being, which will be transmitted whoever he appoints."

"In this sense," the paper emphasized, "the second potential candidate for the post of CIA director, Lieutenant-General Michael Flynn, is no better" as far as established interests are concerned. Flynn worked in intelligence practically all his life, but in the military, topping off his career as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, a post he held from 2012-2014. It doesn't help matters that the worlds of the CIA and US military intelligence have a history of conflict.

In this Feb. 11, 2014 file photo, then-Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington
Vzglyad noted that Flynn, if appointed, probably wouldn't revert to any drastic or emotion-driven changes, like Giuliani, "but would be likely to refocus the agency toward different objectives. Flynn, as in the good old days of the Cold War, will be interested primarily in the practical, military component of intelligence collection."

"The CIA, despite its inertia, would gradually shift toward the collection of 'technical' information – the number of troops, tactical and technical information regarding weapons systems, the dislocation of military formations and command posts, and other things of the sort collected by other intelligence services of the world in a routine manner. Political and strategic intelligence is not Flynn's profession."

Trump's Election: 'We May Have Just Dodged the Bullet on WWIII'For this reason, the paper suggested that "Flynn would probably look much more at home in the post of Secretary of Defense. He at least knows this area, unlike current Secretary and Oxford professor Ashton Carter – a theoretical physicist who sees the army as a combination of circles and arrows, or in the best case, as a chessboard."

Ultimately, both candidates appear to be a threat to the CIA establishment, according to Vzglyad. "A reduction in funding, [along with] the isolationist theme of the new administration will complete the picture of an agency in decline."

However, a change in CIA guidelines could also prove very useful in the long term. "An updated CIA will almost certainly strengthen its work in Latin America…Support for Israel will be strengthened, which can have mixed long-term consequences. Work will inevitably intensify on China and Japan (Tokyo, incidentally, has long ceased to be regarded as an a priori true ally of the United States)."

In any case, hostility to Trump as an outsider and non-ideologue will be likely to create instability, although the agency's daily work will continue. "CIA stations will continue to work as they have, so long as they do not get tangled up by new instructions and circumstances. It's necessary to understand that the activity of the CIA is extremely bureaucratic…At the mundane level, the system operates autonomously, and fails only when instructions and ideological postulates contradict one another."

EU Scrambles to Save TTIP Deal in 'Death Throes' Amid Trump OppositionAt the same, Vzglyad stressed that the CIA will have to get back to doing more field work, an area severely depleted in an era of near total dependence on electronic and cyber-intelligence.

"The bottom line," the newspaper noted, "is that even just the replacement of top officials at the top of the CIA, the NSA and the military will lead to a temporary reduction in their external activity, given the severe internal conflicts and infighting that will arise. All of this will of course require paying close attention and collecting the facts. But it is already clear that this kind of shakeup is one the intelligence community has not faced even in principle."

WOW ! What a bold move :thumbsup: Obama must be furious :laugh:

Trump To Move US Embassy
From TelAviv To Jerusalem?

By Stephen Lendman
11-12-16

Earlier while campaigning, Trump said, if elected, he’d move Washington’s embassy in Israeli from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “I am for that 100%,” he stressed.

It’s an international city under a UN Trusteeship Council, established in 1947 before Israel became a state. It remains so today.

On July 30, 1980, Israel’s Jerusalem Law lawlessly annexed the city as its unified capital - condemned on August 20 unanimously by Security Council Resolution 478, America abstaining.

Israeli control violates international law. UN member states were told to withdraw diplomatic missions from the city immediately. East Jerusalem was declared occupied territory.

Expropriated land is illegal. Israeli legislative and administrative measures altering the city’s character and status are null and void - Israel ignoring orders to rescind them.

In 1995, Congress passed legislation, mandating the US embassy’s move to Jerusalem, allowing presidents a waiver. Each one kept America’s embassy in Tel Aviv, citing national security interests.

According to Trump foreign policy advisor Walid Phares, he may not move Washington’s embassy to Jerusalem, focusing instead on negotiating peace with Israel and Palestine.

After indicating he’d withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal as president, Phares now says he’s just considering some changes.

According to Palestine’s UN envoy Riyad Mansour, if Trump moves America’s embassy to Jerusalem, “we’ll make his life miserable…(N)obody should blame us for unleashing all of the weapons that we have in the UN to defend ourselves and we have a lot of weapons in the UN.”

Campaign pledges one thing to get elected, fulfilling them another entirely. Expect a much different President Trump than his rough-and-tumble bombast on the stump.

Stephen Lendman lives in Chicago. He can be reached at lendmanstephen@sbcglobal.net.

His new book as editor and contributor is titled "Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III."

I can see Trump putting it boldly towards Trudeau. I suspect that Trump will see right through his and despise him. Even when I was a kid I knew that Canada didnt' have to spend much on our military as we knew that the rest of the world knew that the USA would protect us which of course is just dandy with me however I doubt the Trump got to be a multi billionaire without being savvy to scammers.

Revealed, the NATO freeloaders: Why Trump is so infuriated by countries spending less than half their fair share on European defence (and we should be too)NATO has set its members a target of spending 2% of GDP on defence
France, Germany, Canada and Latvia among countries not meeting target
Trump had earlier suggested US would think twice about coming to the aid of nations who do not meet the recommended spend

We should help, but also stop the corruption, and demonizing Russia. Why they are not part of NATO since the fall of the USSR is beyond me.
I can understand now with the way things went, but they could have been a lot better without the intrusions of NATO, and saber rattling by both sides.

Not letting that Somali into the USA would have saved Americans stabbing wounds. It is nice to see a president with common sense after the Bush Obama disasters.

Trump tweets alleged OSU attacker 'should not have been in our country'

President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday morning that the Ohio State University student who allegedly wounded several people during a stabbing attack was a “refugee who should not have been in our country.”

In an early morning post to his Twitter account, the Manhattan billionaire said, “ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country.”

The online comment fits closely with his campaign platform, which first included a proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. but was later altered to a plan that would bar entry to the U.S. for those coming from nations affected by terrorism where thorough screening would be impossible. Trump has used the occasion of other attacks in the past to highlight his plan as the safer course for the country and regularly criticized his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton for her plan to allow more refugees from Syria’s civil war into the country.

The Islamic State did, in fact, claim credit for the Ohio State attack, announcing via its news agency that the alleged perpetrator, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, was one of its “soldiers.” But an expert from SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremists, noted that the announcement by the Islamic State used the same language that the militant group relied on for many attacks they have seemingly inspired. The expert told POLITICO that the Islamic State’s announcement does not necessarily mean that the group was directly involved in the attack.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday at his daily briefing that the knife attack “may have been motivated by extremism and may have been motivated by a desire to carry out an act of terrorism.” U.S. officials have yet to officially assign responsibility for the attack.

The bellicose, red chinks need to STFU and learn their place. They've been getting away with their bullying tactics for too long.

I think they are in for a rude awakening with incoming US presidential administration. I think everyone is. When Trump starts renegotiating trade agreements and applying stricter or higher tariffs, the mainland zips are going to have a hissy. The Chinese have stupidity tied the bulk of their economic life to places like the US and Canada. Without the US market for their cut rate, garbage products, they are just another third world group of rice eaters.

China's economy is going to take another big hit when Trump puts a tariff on jobs going overseas. Trump is a businessman so he knows what doing business with Chinese is about and how they operate.

Thump will make a mess of things for many people here in America also if he imposes all this to fast without jobs.
All these tariffs will cause price increases on nearly everything.
yes it's good, and fair for him to do it, but there is repercussions to doing them.

And not a minute too late. I do believe that eventually If given enough time I do believe that Obama would literally destroy America and turn it into a third world nation. I don't believe that hardly any Americans approve of shariah law being practiced in the USA. Fortunately Trump will undo much of this damage. Canada however has Justin Trudeau :facepalm:

Trump’s MAJOR Shift On Sharia Law Has Obama And The Muslim Brotherhood FURIOUS

Pres. Obama is known for his sympathy for the Islamic faith, from the Muslim people to even the jihadists and militants within them. And I bet he would love to have Sharia Law in America. Last year, Obama stated that Muslim families “should be allowed to enforce their own customs and beliefs as mandated by their religion.”

However, Donald Trump has let the administration know that any signed executive orders that allow Islamic practices to have jurisdiction over legal matters in America will be considered unconstitutional, and he plans to make it so. I bet Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood are fuming, via Snoopack.
Obama thinks that the law of a religion should be more important than the laws of the United States, and that makes absolutely zero sense. By that logic, Mormons could be legally married to all of their wives instead of having one legal marriage and other “spiritual” wives.
But with Obama, religious exceptions would probably only count with Islam. Like everything else, Islam would take precedence over any other religion or people because that’s the way Obama treats this country. You’re not on his radar unless you practice Islam.

Corey Lewandowski, a Trump insider, supposedly told CNN that the president-elect is not going to put up with any religion that isn’t welcome by the majority of Americans having influence over the rule of law.
“The only religion worthy of influencing laws in America is Christianity. Our country is a nation of laws that were established by God-fearing men who would turn over in their graves if a judge had to give custody to a father instead of a mother who was more fit simply because a pagan book says it should be so,” Trump allegedly said.

Our country is a nation of laws that were established by God-fearing men who would turn over in their graves if a judge had to give custody to a father instead of a mother who was more fit simply because a pagan book says it should be so,” Trump allegedly said.

Christianity was the religion that helped found this government, and even then it is not a huge, integral part of our justice system. Why? Because the Bible is old and the laws back then, such as crucifying people and stoning them to death, do not coincide with the laws of today.
Many people do not believe in God, and the justice system works perfectly fine for them. Our system is universal for anyone of any religion or belief. And Islam should not be given special treatment just because Obama wishes to give them preference.

Thankfully, we elected Donald Trump, who is a proud American who will not only keep the good systems we have but throw out all of the bad ones Obama implemented. Our president-elect has vowed to make America great again, and we need to trust that he is going to do it.

Ford to scrap Mexico plant, invest in Michigan; CEO cites Trump policies

Michigan; CEO cites Trump policies

Ford says it is creating new jobs in the US

Before he's even taken office, President-elect Donald Trump has proven to be quite the job creator.

Ford Motor Company announced Tuesday it will cancel a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and will instead invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant, directly tying the decision to “pro-growth policies” championed by President-elect Donald Trump.

Instead of driving jobs and wealth away, AMERICA will become the world's great magnet for INNOVATION & JOB CREATION.https://t.co/siXrptsOrt
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017

Trump had previously been critical of Ford’s plans to build in Mexico. After the announcement, Trump tweeted a link to a story about the Ford decision and then added in a subsequent message: "Instead of driving jobs and wealth away, AMERICA will become the world's great magnet for INNOVATION & JOB CREATION."

“We’re doing this decision based on what’s right for our business,” Ford CEO Mark Fields told Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network. “As we think about the investments here in Michigan, as you can imagine, Neil, we look at a lot of factors as we make those. One of the factors that we’re looking at is a more positive U.S. manufacturing business environment under President-elect Trump and some of the pro-growth policies he said he’s going to pursue. And so this is a vote of confidence.”

WATCH: FORD CEO MARK FIELDS ON FOX BUSINESS NETWORK

Fields said Ford would have gone ahead with the decision whether or not Trump was elected president, however, he did say that he alerted both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence ahead of the announcement on Tuesday.

The Ford news was the latest in a string of pre-inauguration successes for Trump in the manufacturing sector.

In early December, air conditioner and furnace maker Carrier agreed to stay in Indiana after weeks of negotiations headed by Pence. The decision reportedly saved about 700 jobs that would have been shifted to Mexico.

Later in the month, wireless provider Sprint and Internet company OneWeb announced they would be adding thousands of jobs in the U.S. Both companies are controlled by SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son, who had previously met with Trump.

Earlier Tuesday morning, Trump took aim at another auto giant: General Motors.

"General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to U.S. car dealers-tax free across border. Make in U.S.A. or pay big border tax!" Trump tweeted.

GM, however, quickly pushed back on Trump's assertions.

"GM builds the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback for global markets in Mexico, with a small number sold in the U.S." a statement said.

The investment in the Flat Rock Assembly Plant is set to create 700 jobs, according to Fields. The money, which was taken from the $1.6 billion earmarked for the Mexico plant, will be used to open a new factory that will build high-tech autonomous and electric vehicles as well as the Mustang and Lincoln Continental, the company said in a press release.

"I am thrilled that we have been able to secure additional UAW-Ford jobs for American workers," UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles said in the release. "The men and women of Flat Rock Assembly have shown a great commitment to manufacturing quality products, and we look forward to their continued success with a new generation of high-tech vehicles."
