An aggrieved Trump wants better press, and he blames leaks for not getting it...
New York Times reporter Ali Watkins phone and emails had been secretly seized by the Justice Department.
Its the good 'ole story of our beloved surveillance states, their snoopers and black-mailers:
A former Senate Intelligence Committee aide was arrested on Thursday in an investigation of classified information leaks where prosecutors also secretly seized years’ worth of a New York Times reporter’s phone and email records.
Yeah, yeah, its a sad story and we all know it for long but prefer to live in denial as a brave "I-don't-have-anything-tohide" believer.
And here is a thing to do at least the most simplest thing:
Device Set to Self-Destruct (for iPhone)
You can completely wipe your iPhone or iPad after 10 failed attempts.
This option is off by default. To turn it on:
1. Open the Settings and then tap “Touch ID & Passcode”.
2. You will need to enter your passcode to access these settings.
3. Scroll to the bottom of the Touch ID & Passcode settings and tap on “Erase Data” to enable the self-destruct feature.
It’s advised that you make frequent local backups of your data using iTunes after this is enabled–otherwise, if your phone gets erased, your data will be gone for good.
you can of course connect your iPhone to your computer, start "Terminal" and set the self-destruction to 2 or 3 times.
Rottweiler do not deserve their somewhat nasty reputation for aggressiveness and can make a loyal, affectionate and playful family pet when correctly handled and trained. On the whole, the Rottweiler can be recommended for a family life with great caution and certain stipulations. If you are prepared to invest substantial amount of time and efforts in obedience training and socialisation you can raise an exceptionally loyal friend and fearless guardian. This buddy pictured here is since years a very fast learner when to playfully understand how to detect several materials from drugs to explosives. At the same time he loves playing gentle with young children.
That's Why We Have Trouble In Italy:
Here's the thing: The EU seemed relatively stable until the USA (with a little help from their EU Atlantic pals) went full-bore, whole hog, no holds barred into destabilising the Arab world, complete with US-Israeli-sponsored terrorists and arms. This created the Arab and African refugee crisis with 90% of refugees wanting to head straight for the EU. At the beginning these migrants arrived everywhere on Italy's shores and the rest of European governments left Italy deal with the problems.
Over six month ago French President Macron was asking for reforming the structure of the EU. He hoped to have a strong partner for his plan in Merkel, - Macron is still today waiting for her answer. In the mean-time Neo-Facist movements are growing in popularity in the EU, all clamouring for escape from the union. There is a nascent and growing racist Nazi movement breeding.
I understand why the so-called USA Deep State might desire all of this. But why would Merkel and the EU powers agree to its own destruction? Have they all had second thoughts about the EU? Will the destruction of said union result in even greater wealth for its elite?
Then, with the subversive war against Syria, a country which was hosting millions of Iraqi refugees after the Bush-Cheney's illegal war in Iraq the situation escalated: Initially Germany wanted nothing to do with the US-Israeli created refugees and put a lid on accepting them. Remember, suddenly, overnight, as if someone had threatened to feed Merkel's family to the wolves, Germany was seemingly instantaneously opening up the EU to millions of Arab and African refugees which the EU taxpayers now have to support. In effect, the USA created the refugees and then demanded that the EU deal with the problem.
What did the USA do to make the most efficient country in the EU ridicule itself? What kind of power does the USA have that would make the EU's governing body to give in to a policy that is leading in nationalist sentiments with the EU population, creating a series of fractures bound to cause the EU to shatter and collapse in an unshakable schism?
It's obvious that the USA actually wants the EU to fail. It's obvious that the USA initiated everything that happened--from the wars that created the refugees, to the policy that has infuriated a plurality of EU voters.
So, I understand that for some reason the USA wants the EU to fail. But what I do not understand is why the EU has pretty much agreed to policies that have resulted in its own destruction.
I want to know...

While Trump’s non-certification has no formal implications for the Iran Deal, it nonetheless puts the United States in a very awkward position.
President Trump is widely expected to “decertify” the Iran nuclear deal. According to pundits of the Mainstream Media, he will contend that continuing with the deal is not in the national security interests of the United States (despite his top generals explicitly stating otherwise). He will then pass the “issue” to congress, which will have to decide whether or not to re-impose sanctions.
But for the purposes of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — the name of the Iran nuclear deal — this move is both formally irrelevant and diplomatically very awkward. The JCPOA is not an agreement between the United States and Iran. It is an agreement between the UN Security Council, of which the US is a member, and Iran. To be sure, the United States was the key negotiator and instigator of this deal. But it was enshrined by a vote of the Security Council in June 2015.
Resolution 2231 was passed unanimously by the Security Council. It specifically endorses the deal and calls on all parties to abide by its strictures. There is no provision in the JCPOA or Resolution 2231 that allows a party to unilaterally walk away from the deal, also not by the stroke of a pen of the US President and even when the colleague in Telaviv is notoriously insisting to take steps against Iran.
The United States president would show to everybody on the planet that the USA can un-challenged obstruct any key UN Security Council resolutions for which the United States voted just two years ago. This is simply destroying every remaining trust other nations have left to credit to the USA per se. This distrust will logically turn then into internal problems of which the USA has already more then it can bear with its debt-mountain of 17 trillion Dollar.
And if Congress approves a re-imposition of sanctions, the United States could find itself in violation of its own Security Council resolution. In the near term, this could dissolve the Iran Nuclear Deal and lead to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world’s most volatile region, also forcing Isreal to become clear with its nuke arsenals. In the long term, the undermining of a Security Council resolution by a member of the Security Council reduces the overall utility of the Security Council as a forum to addressing global threats.
As the North-South Korea has shown, the USA and its president mutated into good second “winners”. If the US undermines it’s own resolution on Iran, China and Russia will read from that playbook and walk back its commitments. At that point, the one international forum designed to pressure would no longer have any sort of meaningful effect.
