随心所欲,玩耍权力 - 马蒂斯国防部长受不了一个病人。


川普下令彻底歼灭IS,美军暂缓撤离(图)

文章来源: 联报 于 2018-12-31 13:53:11 -
 
美国共和党参议员葛理汉十二月卅日会晤川普总统后表示,川普已下令美军暂缓撤离叙利亚,并承诺先彻底歼灭伊斯兰国(IS)再撤军。

 

英国广播公司(BBC)报导,葛理汉表示,从叙利亚撤军的速度已经放缓,"我认为我们处于暂停状态,我们正重新评估怎样才能实现总统的目标,也就是让其他人多出点钱和多出点力",以解决叙利亚问题。

葛理汉说,川普并未改变从叙利亚撤军决定,"现在暂停只是评估当地的情况"。他说:"总统向我保证,他将确保完成这项工作。他承诺要摧毁IS。他会遵守诺言。我认为我们正以一种明智的方式放慢速度。"

白宫尚未对葛理汉上述言论发表评论。

葛理汉接受CNN访问时,对美国撤军恐让叙国北部跟美国结盟的库德族部队遭到土耳其攻击表示担心,"若我们现在离开,库德族人将被屠杀。总统正重新考虑我们要怎么做这件事。我知道他感到很沮丧。"

川普十二月十九日宣布在叙利亚的两千名美军将迅速撤离,并声称已击败IS,但川普这项决定遭到国内外广泛批评,许多共和党国会议员认为,此刻撤军,恐让IS死灰复燃,损害国家安全。美军虽帮助库德族民兵攻下叙国东北部IS控制的广泛区域,但IS残余部队仍未被完全消灭。

川普宣布撤军决定后,美国国防部长马提斯与对抗IS全球特使麦格克相继辞职。同样不满川普此举的葛理汉指出,川普日前突然访问伊拉克,当地美军指挥官对川普表示,IS尚未被"完全消灭",这些前线指挥官的意见"启发"了川普。

白宫国家安全顾问波顿将前往以色列和土耳其,讨论叙利亚问题。

美国在二○一五年秋天首度派出地面部队到叙利亚,当时美国总统欧巴马仅派遣少数特种部队为库德族战士提供培训与军事谘询。

自己在自己的社交账号里说自己无罪,不管用 🤣 

勾结,勾结,和司法部纠结 😀 


特朗普发推文反驳美国对自己通俄门的指控,并称这是美国司法部和联邦调查局制造的虚假调查,是美国政治史上最大的骗局。

俄罗斯《报纸网》12月30日报道,美国总统特朗普(Donald Trump)表示,对他“通俄门”的最新指控“完全缺乏”证据。

特朗普在推特(Twitter)上发文称:“通俄门造假是美国政治史上最大的骗局。”

特朗普称,美国司法部和联邦调查局在美国前总统奥巴马(Barack Obama)当政时期制造了虚假调查,以帮助希拉里(Hillary Clinton)赢得总统大选。

报道称,美国2016年总统选举中,特朗普赢得大选。美国国会正对“俄罗斯干预美国大选”和美国总统特朗普的“通俄门”进行调查。美联邦调查局前局长米勒(Robert Mueller)被任命为调查的特别检察官。俄罗斯多次驳斥有关干涉美国选举的指控,称这些指控毫无依据。

  1月3日电 多家境外媒体报道称,当地时间周三(2日),美国总统特朗普在内阁会议上表示,他收到了朝鲜最高领导人金正恩的来信,并重申仍希望与金正恩举行第二次会晤。

  据韩联社、新加坡《海峡时报》等媒体报道,特朗普在周三的内阁会议上说,“我刚收到一封来自金正恩的‘很棒的信件’。”特朗普强调,去年6月他与金正恩在新加坡就朝鲜半岛无核化等内容签署了历史性文件,目前仍希望与朝鲜领导人举行第二次会晤。

  特朗普表示,与金正恩的首次会晤是一场重大的外交胜利,“我们确实建立了非常好的关系,我们可能要举行第二次会晤。”

  此前一天,正值新年伊始,金正恩于1月1日发表贺词,重申要坚定不移地实现朝鲜半岛无核化,并表示随时准备与特朗普再次举行会谈。新年贺词中,金正恩明确表达了朝鲜在半岛无核化方面的态度和决心:建立朝美两国间新型关系,构筑朝鲜半岛永久和平机制,实现朝鲜半岛完全无核化。

  2日,特朗普回应金正恩新年讲话,称“金正恩委员长很清楚地认识到朝鲜拥有巨大的经济潜力,我也期待与他会晤。”

  2017年6月12日,美朝首脑会晤在新加坡嘉佩乐酒店举行,这是在任的美朝领导人数十年来首次会晤,全球瞩目。金正恩与特朗普先进行了历史性握手,随后又参加一对一会谈、双边扩大会议等。会晤期间,双方签署了历史性文件,就四项内容达成协议,包括朝鲜方面承诺“完全无核化”。美方则承诺向朝鲜提供安全保障。

代理防长亮相 在川普旁不发一语 一脸这副表情(图)

文章来源: 世日报 于 2019-01-03 08:34:15 - 新闻取自各

美国代理国防部长夏纳翰(Patrick Shanahan)。 美联社

美国代理国防部长夏纳翰今天成为镁光灯焦点;当总统川普公开贬抑前国防部长马提斯时,他坐在川普旁边不发一语。川普嘲讽阿富汗战争,并称叙利亚是“沙子”和“死亡”之地。

路透社报导,前国防部副部长夏纳翰(Patrick Shanahan)昨天正式担任代理国防部长,他发声明表示,“期待与川普总统合作,实现他的愿景”。

川普今天召开2019年首次内阁会议,详尽谈论美国在国外参与的战争,并对这些战争表示不悦。

曾任波音公司(Boeing)高层的夏纳翰,坐在川普旁边不发一语,经常是面无表情。

川普认为,马提斯(Jim Mattis)在阿富汗的策略失败,基本上是被开除了。马提斯上个月以和川普对政策有歧见为由请辞。阿富汗民兵组织塔利班(Taliban)叛乱分子变得越来越有自信,相信可以对他们有利的条件,终结17年来的战争。

川普说:“我对他在阿富汗的所做所为感到不满,我不应该感到高兴。”

川普这番言论,让可能长期担任代理部长的夏纳翰,从上任一开始就面临困难处境。五角大厦许多员工都对马提斯相当忠诚。

川普承认夏纳翰可能会长期担任代理部长。官员表示,先前被视为是马提斯继任者的几位人选,近来都表明不愿担任国防部长。

马提斯公开辞职后,要找到能够获得参议院同意的接替人选,恐怕也相当困难。

夏纳翰并未详述他对叙利亚未来该何去何从的看法。五角大厦计画,未来几个月从叙利亚逐步撤出美军。针对美国计画从阿富汗撤出大批美军一事,他也没有做出评论。

Trump is in a newly perilous position after Democrats took control of the House of Representatives on Thursday, even though Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has sought to cool impeachment talk as special counsel Robert Mueller finishes his Russia investigation.

Story Continued Below

But that hasn’t stopped some Democrats from calling to oust Trump, including freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who was captured on video Thursday evening telling supporters, “We’re going to go in and impeach the motherf---er.”

Trump on Friday morning hit back in a series of tweets in which he also blamed the stock market swoon of recent weeks on Democrats.

“As I have stated many times, if the Democrats take over the House or Senate, there will be disruption to the Financial Markets. We won the Senate, they won the House. Things will settle down. They only want to impeach me because they know they can’t win in 2020, too much success!” Trump wrote.

In a second tweet, he added, “How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?”

Trump has repeatedly said he’s the most successful president of all time, but there’s little evidence to back up his cl

脑子变混凝土,被“墙”了。

 


当地时间1月3日,美国政府部分停摆的第13天,一位关键人物拿到了关键一锤:

当天,第116届国会拉开帷幕,民主党时隔8年重掌众议院,资深议员、南希·佩洛西(Nancy Pelosi)被选为新一任议长。这是一个关键职位,在形式上,众议院议长是美国立法机构中的最高官员,同时也是美国总统继任顺序中继副总统后的第二位继承人。

此前作为众议院民主党领袖的她,一直都在移民问题上与特朗普争锋相对。果不其然,拿到议长木槌后的佩洛西延续一贯的立场,反对特朗普的移民政策。

被“隔空怼”后没多久,特朗普做了个罕见的举动:白宫紧急通知记者召开新闻简报会,特朗普突然现身,系任内首次,他先是祝贺了佩洛西几句,然后话锋一转继续不遗余力呼吁建墙。

事情还没完,几个小时后,新开张的众议院立刻行动:通过法案,希望结束政府部分停摆的状态,但其中并不包括特朗普建墙的资金。

就像自己女儿形容的那样,佩洛西是一个“把你的头砍下来,你甚至不知道自己在流血”的人。

现在,这份法案能否最终通过,决定权就交到了共和党掌控的参议院,以及特朗普手中。

据《纽约时报》当地时间1月3日报道,当天晚上,众议院通过了一项法案以结束政府部分关门的状态,这项法案将为国土安全部提供资金,直至2月8日。但关键问题是,这项法案并没有批准给特朗普建墙的钱。

众议院以239票对192票通过此法案,其中支持的人包括少数共和党人。此外,众议院当天还以241票赞成、190票反对通过了另一项法案,该法案将资助农业、内政和其他部门至9月30日。

但报道指出,上述国土安全部的法案其实与参议院去年年底口头表决通过的法案本质相同,当时的法案也是为了避免政府关门。但是当时,共和党控制的众议院在第二天否决了该法案,导致政府部分停摆。

所以,这次的新法案能否在参议院手中“活下来”,能否最终被特朗普批准,还不清楚。

《纽约时报》分析称,这些措施目前可能不会有任何效果,但它们将对共和党人施加压力,迫使他们回到谈判桌上来。

至少,目前情况并不乐观。此前,参议院多数党领袖麦康奈尔(Mitch McConnell)发言人唐纳德·斯图尔特(Donald Stewart)表示,没有特朗普的支持,参议院共和党人不会通过任何此类立法。斯图尔特说:“很简单,参议院不会给总统送一些他不会签署的东西。”

而特朗普对建墙执念很深,没有建墙资金的法案,他估计不会满意。

毕竟,“墙”这个词陪他度过了圣诞节、跨年夜。从“不给建墙费,政府不开门”,到“筹建墙费,要多久等多久”,再到“要么建墙,要么关边境”,最后甚至说出了这样的话:“我一个人在白宫守了有6、7天。这很寂寞,我家人都去佛罗里达州了。我说你们就呆那儿,好好玩。我觉得我必须留在这里,万一有人想过来和我讨论边境安全问题呢?”

任内首次现身白宫简报会讲话

特朗普可以说是十分倔强了!至少现在,还没有看出特朗普有什么妥协的迹象,随着众议院重新回到民主党人手中,特朗普又有了一系列新动作。

在新一届国会开始的当天清晨,特朗普发了条推特,替政府关门又给出了一个解释,看上去逻辑缜密:

当佩洛西成为众议院议长,发表讲话之后,特朗普又做出了一个更罕见的举动。

据美国广播公司(ABC)消息,3日,白宫的记者们突然接到通知说,白宫新闻发言人桑德斯要召开新闻简报会。但更让人想不到的是,特朗普竟然意外现身。

他先是祝贺佩洛西当选众议院议长,随后,又说起了他的墙。

“没有墙,你们就不可能有边境安全。”

期间,特朗普还邀请了自己的“朋友”来站台、发言:“他们就是ICE和美国边防警卫队,还有一位已经成为我的朋友了,我要请布兰登上台说两句……”

这是特朗普上任以来第一次在詹姆斯·s·布雷迪新闻发布厅(James S. Brady briefing room)的讲台上露面,但是他大概待了10分钟,没有回答记者提问。

一名白宫高级官员告诉ABC,在最后一刻来到简报室,是特朗普自己的主意。

她会把你的头砍下来,你甚至不知道你在流血

今年78岁的佩洛西是一名资深民主党人。在建墙问题上,一直与特朗普扛着,谁也不让谁。去年12月,特朗普、佩洛西,以及参议院少数党领袖舒默在白宫会面,竟直接在镜头前吵了起来……

据美国“政客”新闻网站(Politico)报道,佩洛西是半个多世纪以来第一位在失去议长宝座后又重新夺回的人。从2007年到2011年,她是第一个也是唯一一个担任这一职务的女性。此外,佩洛西还有望成为美国历史上年龄最大的议长。

美联社称佩洛西是一个“高度两极化的人物”。在反对者眼里,她是一个脱离实际、崇尚精英主义的自由派人士。但她也是五个孩子的母亲和九个孩子的祖母,“打碎了玻璃天花板,成为21世纪最有权势的政治家之一。”《纽约时报》称她为“女性权力的象征”。

佩洛西的女儿亚历山德拉·佩洛西(Alexandra Pelosi)1月2日在美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)的节目中被问及自己的母亲,她说:“她会把你的头砍下来,你甚至不知道你在流血,这就是你需要知道的关于她的一切。”

佩洛西女儿(左)  视频截图

3日,在NBC《今日秀》节目中,佩洛西被问到“是否会排除弹劾总统的选项”时,她表示,这要等到“通俄门”特别检察官穆勒的报告出炉才能决定:“我们不能出于政治原因开启弹劾程序,也不能因此放弃弹劾。”

尽管民主党内一些议员想要特朗普“下台”,但佩洛西表示,至少目前,这些努力还构不成弹劾。

据报道,佩洛西这番说辞与此前相比有了微妙的变化,几个月前她曾说弹劾是“不可能讨论的事情”。


 

党媒脑子也被墙了,引用委内瑞拉的中文报纸-即党媒的回声的话:

 

但除此之外,佩洛西还是一位“反华急先锋”。此前,在涉藏问题、北京奥运会等问题上,她总是发表一些不负责任、颠倒黑白、混淆视听的反华言论。早在2008年4月,中新网就曾援引委内瑞拉《委华报》的报道表示,佩洛西总是打着“民主、自由、人权”的幌子,对华实行双重的“道德权威”标准,是个所谓坚定的“反华斗士”。

如果联邦政府持续关门,没有必要呆在白宫,可以走人了。


Trump confirms he said he could keep shutdown going for months or years

article video

 

 

Washington (CNN)A meeting Friday between President Donald Trump and newly powerful Democrats ended in split descriptions of what transpired, with Republicans expressing optimism a deal could be struck and their political opponents reporting no end in sight.

Neither side emerged detailing an immediate breakthrough that could end the continued stalemate that has allowed a partial government shutdown to wear on. And despite his rosier outlook, Trump conceded the impasse could reach an historic length, a timeline first relayed by the Senate's top Democrat.

Trump "said he'd keep the government closed for a very long period of time -- months or even years," according to Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who spoke to reporters in the White House driveway.

 

"Absolutely I said that," Trump affirmed from the Rose Garden shortly afterward. "I don't think it will, but I'm prepared."

 

Despite that threat, Trump announced that further discussions would occur over the weekend led by staff members. And he sought to highlight areas, like increasing port capacity, where he was in agreement with Democrats.

"We had a very, very productive meeting and I think we've come a long way," Trump said, adding later: "We're all on the same path in terms of wanting to get government open."

Trump said he designated a group of aides, including Vice President Mike Pence, Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, to participate in the discussions, which he described as meant to "determine what we're going to do about the border."

It's that question which still divides the White House and congressional Democrats, who have vowed to block any attempts to secure new funding for a border wall.

"We cannot resolve this until we open up government, and we made that very clear to the President," Pelosi said after the White House meeting.

She described the session as "a lengthy and sometimes contentious conversation" but indicated there was some progress made.

"How do you define progress in a meeting?" she asked. "When you have a better understanding of each other's position? When you eliminate some possibilities? If that's the judgment, we made some progress."

The midday meeting between Trump and congressional leaders in the White House Situation Room was a repeat affair after a similar session on Wednesday devolved into bickering and finger-pointing. On Friday, Trump found himself facing Pelosi a way after she was elevated to speaker, along Schumer, both of whom say they will not bend in opposing Trump's demand for border wall funding.

Both sides were expected to address reporters afterward; the Democrats from the White House driveway and Trump from the Rose Garden.

Earlier in the day, the President sent a list of demands to Capitol Hill, releasing publicly a letter sent to members of Congress outlining the reasons he continues to seek a border wall. He said he was taking the step because Democratic lawmakers refused to listen the presentation during Wednesday's meeting at the White House.

"As the enclosed presentation makes clear, current funding levels, resources, and authorities are woefully inadequate to meet the scope of the problem," Trump wrote in a publicly released letter. "We are no longer in a status quo situation at the Southern Border but in a crisis situation. Status quo funding is not enough."

 

"Absolutely critical to border security and national security is a wall or a physical barrier that prevents entry in the first place," Trump said.

The letter was intended to perpetuate the White House's view of the border issue as a national security emergency -- one of the reasons that meetings with lawmakers this week were convened in the highly secure Situation Room, which has been used in the past to oversee classified raids or military campaigns.

White House aides also hoped the classified setting -- where members of the media are not typically allowed -- would avoid an on-camera setting like Trump held with Pelosi and Schumer in early December, when the Democrats essentially goaded the President into saying he would own any government shutdown.

Trump has largely abandoned that vow, blaming the state of affairs on a myriad of factors: Schumer, Pelosi's speakership prospects and the 2020 election.

 

Democrats, meanwhile, believe they have effectively jammed McConnell with the plan the new Democratic House passed Thursday night -- a bill to reopen the government with no additional wall funding -- and that rank-and-file GOP senators will start to feel pressure and begin sending word that it's time to buck the President and put the Democratic proposals on the floor.

Republican Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado and Susan Collins of Maine -- both up for re-election in 2020 -- have indicated publicly the shutdown should end before a deal is reached on a wall, signs Democrats take as evidence their strategy is working.

Still, senior Republican aides have noted the decision by Collins and Gardner is hardly reflective of where the broader conference stands. Most Republicans have backed the President's demands for at least $5 billion in funding for the border wall, which was his central campaign promise.

And McConnell has insisted he will not bring for a vote any measure that Trump will not sign. The White House issued a veto threat late Thursday for the package of bills passed by the House.

"The package presented by the House's new Democrat leaders yesterday can only be seen as a time-wasting act of political posturing," McConnell said on Friday. "It does not carry the support of the President. In fact, the administration explicitly indicated yesterday the President would actually veto it. And it cannot earn the support of 60 of my colleagues here in the Senate."

 

Senators are due back in the Capitol next week after the chamber adjourned Friday morning, meaning the shutdown will likely extend into a third week. Roughly 800,000 federal workers are going without pay and several federal systems are closed, including the Smithsonian museums and some national parks.

Most of the President's allies have encouraged him to remain firm in his demands for border wall funding, even as the prospects of a bill emerging from Capitol Hill with the funds included grew slim with the swearing-in of a new Democratic House.

Even inside the West Wing, the President's senior aides have not counseled him to accept Democratic proposals that would end the shutdown, believing that having the border security fight in the headlines is more preferable than the special counsel's Russia investigation or Michael Cohen's prison sentence.

On Fox News, the President's favorite cable channel, top host Sean Hannity offered a suggestion on Thursday of pairing border wall funding with protections for young undocumented immigrants brought to the US by their parents, recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (or DACA) program. It's the same plan Sen. Lindsey Graham floated to the President over lunch last weekend, though the President was noncommittal.

Republican and Democratic aides both said such a solution is not currently on the table in negotiations. Democrats have made clear they don't trust the White House or Trump to follow through in any broader deal.
