Donald Trump | The Guardian: Nancy Pelosi turns clapping into a viral art form as she trolls Trump

House speaker’s sarcastic applause for the president without saying a word has become the defining moment from his State of the Union address
Nancy Pelosi is known as a shrewd political tactician and tireless public servant, but after Tuesday night’s State of the Union address she can add world-class mime to her résumé.
Throughout the speech the House speaker managed to undermine Trump without speaking a word, employing subtle eye rolls or apparently ignoring him by reading papers to show her disapproval.

Ms Haspel's pictorial designs, the state of the Union, and the state of Putin's nipples are strong! - As of 6:33 AM 2/6/2019.

Putin breastfeeds Baby Trump (in public and in a broad daylight, no problemas), and "the state of his nipples is strong", according to Colbert, who probably examined them personally. Well, can he be bottle fed, already? He is a big boy now. And that will free Putin to deal with US - Russian relations, already. Adam Levine, follow Colbert's advice! Work on it! - M.N. - 6:33 AM 2/6/2019


And Vladimir Putin has a message for Adam Levine, too.



 Donald Trump




M.N.: For me, the most valuable information was contained in the elegant pictorial design of Ms. Haspel's beautiful dress: a lot of pretty lady hats punctuating and presiding over the multiple sinusoidal strands. Every strand is by itself but still woven together in the continuous moving waves, each capped by the modest, pretty, genuine little hat, bursting with zinger red bands - check-marks... Come up with your own interpretations, it would be hard to get wrong with them. Project, absorb, contemplate, analyse, compose, smile... - M.N.

Lawfare - Hard National Security Choices: National Security Highlights in the 2019 State of the Union

On Feb. 5, President Trump gave his third State of the Union address. Below are the excerpts most relevant to Lawfarereaders, organized by topic, in the order in which they were mentioned. A full transcript is available here.
***
On investigations of the president and associates:
An economic miracle is taking place in the United States -- and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations.
If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation. It just doesn't work that way!
On immigration and border security:
As we have seen, when we are united, we can make astonishing strides for our country. Now, Republicans and Democrats must join forces again to confront an urgent national crisis.
The Congress has 10 days left to pass a bill that will fund our Government, protect our homeland, and secure our southern border.
Now is the time for the Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.
As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States. We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection. I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for the tremendous onslaught.
This is a moral issue. The lawless state of our southern border is a threat to the safety, security, and financial well‑being of all Americans. We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens. This includes our obligation to the millions of immigrants living here today, who followed the rules and respected our laws. Legal immigrants enrich our Nation and strengthen our society in countless ways. I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally.
Tonight, I am asking you to defend our very dangerous southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country.
No issue better illustrates the divide between America's working class and America's political class than illegal immigration. Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.
Meanwhile, working class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal migration -- reduced jobs, lower wages, overburdened schools and hospitals, increased crime, and a depleted social safety net.
Tolerance for illegal immigration is not compassionate -- it is cruel. One in three women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north. Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country.
Human traffickers and sex traffickers take advantage of the wide open areas between our ports of entry to smuggle thousands of young girls and women into the United States and to sell them into prostitution and modern-day slavery.
Tens of thousands of innocent Americans are killed by lethal drugs that cross our border and flood into our cities -- including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
The savage gang, MS-13, now operates in 20 different American States, and they almost all come through our southern border. Just yesterday, an MS-13 gang member was taken into custody for a fatal shooting on a subway platform in New York City. We are removing these gang members by the thousands, but until we secure our border they're going to keep streaming back in.
Year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens.
[...]
My Administration has sent to the Congress a commonsense proposal to end the crisis on our southern border.
It includes humanitarian assistance, more law enforcement, drug detection at our ports, closing loopholes that enable child smuggling, and plans for a new physical barrier, or wall, to secure the vast areas between our ports of entry. In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall -- but the proper wall never got built. I'll get it built.
This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier -- not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.
San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in the country. In response, and at the request of San Diego residents and political leaders, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost completely ended illegal crossings.
The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime -- one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our Nation's most dangerous cities. Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities.
Simply put, walls work and walls save lives. So let's work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe.
On trade with China:
To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount -- reversing decades of calamitous trade policies.
We are now making it clear to China that after years of targeting our industries, and stealing our intellectual property, the theft of American jobs and wealth has come to an end.
Therefore, we recently imposed tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese goods -- and now our Treasury is receiving billions of dollars a month from a country that never gave us a dime. But I don't blame China for taking advantage of us -- I blame our leaders and representatives for allowing this travesty to happen. I have great respect for President Xi, and we are now working on a new trade deal with China. But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.
On defense spending and NATO:
Over the last 2 years, we have begun to fully rebuild the United States Military -- with $700 billion last year and $716 billion this year. We are also getting other nations to pay their fair share. For years, the United States was being treated very unfairly by NATO -- but now we have secured a $100 billion increase in defense spending from NATO allies.
As part of our military build-up, the United States is developing a state-of-the-art Missile Defense System.
On the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty:
For example, decades ago the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities. While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF Treaty.
Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others, or perhaps we can't --- in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far.
On North Korea:
As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula. Our hostages have come home, nuclear testing has stopped, and there has not been a missile launch in 15 months. If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea with potentially millions of people killed. Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one. And Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.
On Venezuela:
Two weeks ago, the United States officially recognized the legitimate government of Venezuela, and its new interim President, Juan Guaido.
We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom -- and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.
On Israel:
One of the most complex set of challenges we face is in the Middle East.
Our approach is based on principled realism -- not discredited theories that have failed for decades to yield progress. For this reason, my Administration recognized the true capital of Israel -- and proudly opened the American Embassy in Jerusalem.
On counter-Islamic State operations:
As a candidate for President, I pledged a new approach. Great nations do not fight endless wars.
When I took office, ISIS controlled more than 20,000 square miles in Iraq and Syria. Today, we have liberated virtually all of that territory from the grip of these bloodthirsty killers.
Now, as we work with our allies to destroy the remnants of ISIS, it is time to give our brave warriors in Syria a warm welcome home.
On Afghanistan:
I have also accelerated our negotiations to reach a political settlement in Afghanistan. Our troops have fought with unmatched valor -- and thanks to their bravery, we are now able to pursue a political solution to this long and bloody conflict.
In Afghanistan, my Administration is holding constructive talks with a number of Afghan groups, including the Taliban. As we make progress in these negotiations, we will be able to reduce our troop presence and focus on counter-terrorism. We do not know whether we will achieve an agreement -- but we do know that after two decades of war, the hour has come to at least try for peace.
On counter-terrorism:
Above all, friend and foe alike must never doubt this Nation's power and will to defend our people. Eighteen years ago, terrorists attacked the USS Cole -- and last month American forces killed one of the leaders of the attack.
On Iran:
My Administration has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran.
To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. And last fall, we put in place the toughest sanctions ever imposed on a country.
We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people. We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism, or those who spread its venomous creed. With one voice, we must confront this hatred anywhere and everywhere it occurs.

Just Security: The Early Edition: February 6, 2019

Before the start of business, Just Security provides a curated summary of up-to-the-minute developments at home and abroad. Here’s today’s news.
STATE OF THE UNION
President Trump attempted to convey a message of bipartisan unity in his State of the Union Address last night, but indicated that he would continue to push for his “hard-line” immigration policies. In a nationally televised speech. Trump presented himself as a leader who could work across party lines even as he pressed lawmakers to build the long-promised border wall on the southern border rejected by Congressional Democrats, Peter Baker reports at the New York Times.
“This is a smart … strategic … see-through steel barrier—not just a simple concrete wall,” Trump said of his promised wall, adding “it will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need.” Should Congress fail to act, “I’ll get it built” in any event, the president vowed, Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas report at the Wall Street Journal.
Trump lashed out against what he described as “ridiculous partisan investigations,” as House Democrats prepare a range of probes into his administration. “An economic miracle is taking place in the U.S. and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations,” Trump said, adding: “if there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation … it just doesn’t work that way;” Trump did not specifically mention special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian electoral interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign, Morgan Chalfant reports at the Hill.
Trump announced that he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this month, revealing that he would hold the second meeting with Kim in Vietnam on Feb. 27-28 following their landmark summit last year. Trump proclaimed that his election had prevented war with North Korea: “if I had not been elected president of the U.S., we would right now . . . be in a major war with North Korea with potentially millions of people killed … much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one,” Demetri Sevastopulo and Courtney Weaver report at the Financial Times.
The president claimed that his administration had accelerated talks for a political settlement in Afghanistan, and would be able to reduce U.S. troops there as negotiations advance to end America’s longest war. “Great nations do not fight endless wars,” Trump said, also claiming that U.S. troops had nearly defeated Islamic State group militants in Syria and it was time to bring soldiers home, Reuters reports.
Trump also took aim at Iran – calling the country “the world’s leading state sponsor of terror” and accusing its leaders of doing “bad, bad things.” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded in a message posted on Twitter today, claiming “U.S. hostility has led it to support dictators, butchers & extremists who’ve only brought ruin to our region,” also contesting Trump’s accusations that Iran has assisted in the coordination of anti-Semitic attacks, The Daily Beastreports.
Democrats yesterday rejected Trump’s calls for bipartisanship, with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) predicting Trump was going to just take his annual break from “364 days of the year dividing us and sowing a state of disunion.” Michael Scherer provides an account of the Democratic response at the Washington Post.
STATE OF THE UNION: OPINION AND ANALYSIS
An account of the most “evocative” moments from the president’s Address last night is provided by Miles Parks at NPR.
If Trump truly cared about bipartisan cooperation “he would have committed not to declare a phony state of emergency in order to build his wall against congressional wishes,” the Washington Post editorial board writes.
The State of the Union took place with “Mueller’s investigation grinding inexorably forward” in the background, and though “the state of the union is strong … the same cannot be said for the state of Mr Trump’s presidency,” the Economistnotes.
Trump’s State of the Union was the speech of a president losing his grip on power, Edward Luce comments at the Financial Times, predicting that “Trump will bill the [2020 presidential] election as a battle between him and a socialist” and the election “will take place against the backdrop of a missing wall.”
The “dizzying and even disorienting” nature of Trump’s State of Union was a deliberate strategy aiming to reconnect Trump the candidate and Trump the president, John F. Harris argues at POLITICO, commenting that “Trump recognizes the potential damage he incurred by offering to “own” the federal government shutdown and that being seen as the leader of an unpopular establishment party sacrifices the insurgent and outsider nature of his own brand.”
A fact-checker for last night’s speech is provided at the New York Times.
The KOREAN PENINSULA
U.S. envoy to North Korea Stephen Biegun arrived in Pyongyang today, aiming to sort out “crucial details” for a nuclear summit meeting in Vietnam between President Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, scheduled for three week’s time. Biegun reportedly arrived around the time that Trump announced during his State of the Union Address that he and Kim will meet for the second time on Feb. 27-28, Choe Sang-Hun reports at the New York Times.
South Korea welcomed Trump’s announcement of the upcoming meeting with Kim, expressing hope today that the leaders can build on their first meeting to make “more specific and substantial progress” this time round. The presidential Blue House also noted important symbolism of Vietnam as the choice of venue: “Vietnam and the U.S. used to point guns and knives at each other but have now become friends,” presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-keum told a news conference, adding “we expect Vietnam to be a perfectly suitable backdrop to a new history to be written between North Korea and the U.S.” Simon Denver and Min Joo Kim report at the Washington Post.
North Korea is reportedly working to protect its nuclear and missile stockpiles from military strikes, according to U.N. monitors. The monitors sent a confidential report to a 15-member U.N. Security Council sanctions committee, in which they claim that they had “found evidence of a consistent trend on the part of [North Korea] to disperse its assembly, storage and testing location,” Tal Axelrod reports at the Hill.
The panel of experts that compiled the report was established following several U.N. Security Council resolutionsaimed at pressuring Pyongyang into ceasing nuclear tests and missile launches. Richard Roth reports at CNN.
VENEZUELA
Pope Francis yesterday expressed a potential willingness to mediate a peaceful resolution to the political fallout in Venezuela if he were asked to do so by both President Nicolás Maduro and opposition leader and self-declared interim president Juan Guaidó. “We are always willing,” said Francis on the papal plane returning to Rome from Abu Dhabi, on his return from the first-ever papal visit to the Arabian Peninsula, acknowledging that Maduro had sent him a letter which he said he has yet to read, Jason Horowitz reports at the New York Times.
Venezuela’s opposition-dominated congress yesterday said it will hold new elections as soon as possible within a year— once Maduro is ousted from power. Meanwhile, Venezuela’s socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello also threatened to hold early legislative elections that could empty Congress of its opposition representatives, accusing the opposition of taking direction from the U.S.; “we won’t skip a beat,” Cabello said, adding “we have no doubt that the imperialism governs the Venezuelan right wing,” Scott Smith reports at the AP.
The U.S. has sent food and medicine to Colombia’s border with Venezuela, U.S. officials announced yesterday, although it is still unclear how the aid will get past the objections of Maduro, who has previously blocked shipments. A senior U.S. administration official said it was up to Guaidó to decide when and how to move the supplies into the country, adding “we will seek to help him to do so by whatever means possible,” Reuters reports.
It is by backing Guaidó that “governments throughout the Americas and the world will make clear that democracy and the people’s will prevail over demagoguery and repression,” Irwin Cotler and Brandon Silver argue at Foreign Policy.
N.A.T.O.
President Trump is expected to visit the U.K. in December, after N.A.T.O. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that leaders of the military alliance would meet there for a summit. “I am pleased to announce that allies have agreed that the next meeting of N.A.T.O. heads of state and government will take place in London in December 2019,” Stoltenberg said in a statement, adding: “we are grateful to the United Kingdom for agreeing to host this meeting in N.A.T.O.’s 70th anniversary year… the U.K. was one of the alliance’s 12 founding members and continues to play a key role in the alliance, making essential contributions to our shared security,” the Press Association reports.
Macedonia today took a substantial step toward becoming the 30th member of N.A.T.O. In a move that marked the end of a longstanding dispute with Greece over the country’s name, Stoltenberg and Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov led an “accession protocol” signing ceremony at the alliance’s Brussels headquarters; “this is a historic occasion,” Stoltenberg told N.A.T.O. country envoys, adding “we have waited for you to join our family for a long time,” Lorne Cook and Konstantin Testorides report a the AP.
An analysis of the implications of Macedonia’s name-change and its progress toward N.A.T.O. membership is provided by Una Hajdari at the New York Times.
TRUMP-RUSSIA
Federal prosecutors in recent weeks have been interviewing witnesses about the flow of foreign money to three powerful law and lobbying firms recruited seven years ago by Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. Manafort allegedly brought the firms on board to improve the image of the Russia-aligned president of Ukraine Viktor F. Yanukovych; Manafort has already pleaded guilty to various charges related to his lucrative work on behalf of Yanukovych, Kenneth P. Vogen explains at the New York Times.
Head of the House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is scheduling a markup of acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker’s subpoena ahead of his slated appearance on Capitol Hill, claiming the pre-emptive move is motivated by an “abundance of caution.” Nadler has taken other steps to prevent Whitaker from avoiding answering particular questions centering around the Mueller probe by sending him a series of questions in advance; Nadler stated in a letter late last month said that Whitaker should consult with the White House on those questions because the committee “will not accept your declining to answer any question on the theory that the President may want to invoke his privileges in the future,” Olivia Beavers reports at the Hill.
OTHER DEVELOPMENTS
Russia announced yesterday that it is planning to develop two new land-based missile launch systems in response to President Trump’s announcement last week that the U.S. will pull out of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (I.N.F.) Moscow reportedly intends to develop the systems by 2021 in order to counter U.S. developments in its missile capabilities, Tal Axelrod reports at the Hill.
Iran has warned Israel of a “firm and appropriate” response if it continues attacking targets in Syria. Israel has repeatedly attacked Iranian targets in Syria; in a meeting yesterday with Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Moalem in Tehran, Secretary of Iran’s National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said the Israeli attacks violated Syria’s territorial integrity and were “unacceptable,” Al Jazeera reports.
U.S.-led airstrikes continue. U.S. and coalition forces carried out 645 airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria between Jan. 13 and Jan. 26. [Central Command]
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani spoke with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo late yesterday in an apparent bid to reassert his authority, as Washington accelerates its negotiations with the Taliban militants and separate talks unfold in Moscow without the involvement of the Afghan government. Rahim Faiez reports at the AP.
U.N. Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths told the country’s warring parties yesterday that rapid implementation of a prisoner swap deal would help advance efforts at a political settlement. Griffiths said the task of finalizing a list of the thousands of prisoners should be completed by the end of three days of talks in Amman between representatives from the Saudi-backed government and the Iranian-aligned Houthi rebels, Reuters reports.
What does Trump do during his “executive time?” Michael D’Antonio provides an analysis at CNN.
