VIDEO: President Trump Drops the Hammer on NATO Just Before Summit Begins

Published

on

President Trump is not the kind of man to mince words when he’s got something on his mind to say, and he most certainly lived up to that well earned reputation for telling it like it is when he obliterated members of NATO for not giving enough money to the organization.

He didn’t stop there. He also accused Germany of being held captive by Russia.

As you can see, Trump was fired up and ready to go, unafraid to speak his mind which is one reason among many that so many folks admire him.

In a stunning public dressing-down of NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, President Trump fired off criticisms of the alliance, reiterating his complaint that it is not paying enough for defense and singling out a German oil-and-gas pipeline deal with Russia.

“Well, I have to say I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia when you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia,” Trump said.

“So, we’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France, we’re protecting all of these countries,” Trump continued. “And then numerous of the counties go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia. So, we are supposed to protect you against Russia.”

“You tell me if that is appropriate?” Trump said as he blistered NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. “Germany is totally controlled by Russia.”

“This has been going on for decades,” Trump continued. “This has been brought up by other presidents, but other presidents never did anything about it.”

“It’s very unfair to our country, it’s very unfair to our taxpayers,” Trump said. “And I think that these countries have to step it up not over a 10 year period— they have to step it up immediately.”

Ouch. That’s definitely going to leave a mark on the delicate ego of these so-called “world leaders” and influencers, wouldn’t you agree?

Trump is right in saying that previous presidents have not done much to fix this particular situation, which strongly suggests he’s most definitely going to solve the problem if he has the time to do so. This is precisely what he did with the whole North Korea situation too.

Obama and President Bush before him could’ve done more to fix a lot of issues on the geopolitical stage, but out of fear of not pleasing their base, they chose to compromise their values in this particular area of politics.

Thankfully, we have a commander-in-chief in office who is actually taking measures to clean up the mess. We need to stop making them because we may not be so blessed to have someone like Trump come in and fix things in the future.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
