George Nader: How a convicted paedophile became key to an Emirati hook-up with Trump

https://twitter.com/LincolnsBible/status/1305918608288051200

FROM THE ARTICLE of July 2019....

Honest to god.. Trump's Peace Deal was long ago brokered by George Nader, Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon & Erik Prince, to name a few.

The story tells more than I ever wanted to know.
Eye opening tale of corruption & conmen.

And here we are today. 🙁

George Nader: How a convicted paedophile became key to an Emirati hook-up with Trump


How did a convicted criminal and serial paedophile come to be one of the main points of contact between President Donald Trump's inner circle and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed (MBZ) of Abu Dhabi?

As far back as the Reagan era, George Nader was attempting to make himself indispensable
to successive US administrations by offering back-channel lines of communication with figures in the Middle East who might otherwise remain out of reach.

In recent years, as a senior political adviser to the crown prince, Nader has been helping MBZ in his dealings with both Moscow and Washington, and has been key to the establishment of a new alliance between the Trump administration, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The Barr Memo and the Imperial Presidency / JANUARY 17, 2019

William Barr is living out every belief he's ever had of dismanteling the US Constitution & installing a Unitary Executive Priviledge to the Imperial Presidency.
Barr & Trump are both playing off the insanity of each other.

The Barr Memo and the Imperial Presidency

SNIP
Constitutionally, it is wrong to conceive of the President as simply the highest officer within the Executive branch hierarchy. He alone is the Executive branch.納1]

The conception of presidential power embraced in the Barr Memo goes well beyond the ordinary unitary executive claims. I have taken to calling it the imperial executive, in part because no Attorney General has ever come so close to accepting Louis XIV痴 motto, 鏑弾tat c弾st moi. This theory revives the view of executive power that launched a thousand signing statements, generated the torture memo, and justified warrantless domestic surveillance in spite of the legal prohibitions in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. It is impossible to conceive of all the damage this theory will do in the hands of the Trump Administration, and a full catalog would require a book length post. I would, nonetheless, like to highlight a few implications that strike me as immediately obvious.

The independent agencies are unconstitutional.
William Barr痴 view of presidential power would hold independent agencies unconstitutional, overturning nearly a century of Supreme Court precedent and upending dozens of regulatory agencies

"The unitary executive theory is a theory of United States constitutional law which holds that the President of the United States possesses the power to control the entire executive branch."

I believe Nixon attempted to install an Imperial Presidency also.

Only question is whether inspections will occur only for ballots with Dem votes, due to who is doing the complaining.

(Damn!) "Lukashenko seeks Putin's help in attempt to survive mass protests"

Lukashenko seeks Putin's help in attempt to survive mass protests
Russian leader agrees to $1.5bn loan with Minsk and says Belarus crisis should be resolved without foreign interference.

Russia has agreed to a $1.5bn loan with Minsk, President Vladimir Putin said at talks on Monday with Alexander Lukashenko, the embattled Belarusian leader, adding that the Belarusian people should resolve the crisis without foreign interference.


Putin, in comments broadcast on television from the talks in Russia's Sochi, said he thought a proposal by Lukashenko to carry out constitutional reform was logical and timely.

Lukashenko arrived in Sochi to meet Putin on Monday, as protests continued across Belarus seeking the end of his rule following a disputed August 9 election.

SNIP
On Monday, the UN rights council agreed to host an urgent debate on reports of violence at the hands of authorities during protests.

Lukashenko, 65, last week gave an interview to Russian journalists, including Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of Kremlin-controlled channel RT, in which he warned that if his government falls, "Russia will be next".


Lukashenko, who has ruled the Eastern European nation of 9.5 million people with an iron fist since 1994, has previously blamed the West for fomenting demonstrations in Belarus in hopes of turning it into a "bridgehead against Russia".
