Hamburg, Germany, anti-globalization
activists terrorist have rioted for a second night as Hamburg hosts the Group of 20 leaders, setting up street barricades, looting supermarkets and attacking police with slingshots and petrol bombs.
Police say riots were extremely violent in the early hours of Saturday in the city’s Schanzenviertel neighborhood. Hundreds of officers went into buildings to arrest rioters while being attacked with iron rods and Molotov cocktails thrown from the roofs.
Some 500 people looted a supermarket in the neighborhood as well as smaller stores. Cars were torched, street fires lit as activists built barricades with garbage cans and bikes.
At least 45 demonstrators were arrested, 15 were temporarily detained, and 160 police officers were injured including three officers who were hospitalized.
Peaceful protest are a thing of the past.
More and more, protestors are turning to violent terrorist tactics. Attacking public officials, police and citizens. Turning to riots, looting and arson in an attempt to ‘force’ business and governments to institute their radical often racist ideas as public policy.
President Trump’s administration is erasing an Obama-era rule that withdrew hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land from possible energy exploration. In the process, it is also opening some U.S. coastal waters in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans for possible oil and gas drilling.
Speaking at a Department of Energy event in June, President Trump said, “We don’t want to let other countries take away our sovereignty and tell us what to do and how to do it. It’s not going to happen.”
White House officials say Thursday’s order directing the Bureau of Land Management to speed up the permitting process for oil and gas leases is a step in that direction.
Couple the latest move with last week’s repeal of the Clean Water Rule, and you have what administration officials call “a blueprint for energy dominance.” The Environmental Protection Agency amended the “Waters of the United States” rules that critics called unfair to agribusiness.
When you roll back the regulations, this means you’re saving on your electricity bills, this means price of gasoline is coming down a few cents a gallon, it can really ripple into tremendous economic benefits when that money is being put back into your wallet.
President Trump’s speech in Warsaw was largely acclaimed even by longtime critics as the president took Russia to task for destabilizing actions around the world and praised the Polish resistance during World War II as a model for cultures fighting existential threats.
Left leaning fake news outlets including The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Salon and The Atlantic decried the speech as an ode to white nationalism and anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant rhetoric.
The Washington Post headlined an opinion piece from editorial board member Jonathan Capehart “Trump’s white-nationalist dog whistles in Warsaw.” Capehart’s biggest gripe centers around the section where Trump touted Western accomplishments.
The Atlantic picked up where The Post left off, with an article called “The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump’s Warsaw Speech.”
Donald Trump referred 10 times to ‘the West’ and five times to ‘our civilization,’” Peter Beinart wrote. “His white nationalist supporters will understand exactly what he means. It’s important that other Americans do, too…The West is a racial and religious term.”
Salon said Trump’s speech “ripped a line from Europe’s far-right playbook.”
The LA Times termed Trump’s ideas “ethnocentric” and called his description of threats from terrorism as “a thinly veiled reference to the Islamic world.”
The Week cast the address as a “dark vision of America” and criticized his word choice.

CNN host Reza Aslan, an Iranian-American, Islam terror supporter, called Trump a “piece of shit” for saying America must get “tough” on terror.

It is not surprising ‘Fake News’ network CNN has not apologized to the President for the acts and attack on the President of the United States by one of CNN’s host.
After 72 years freeloading European nations told carry your fair share of military defense cost. For the past 70+ years the United States and UK have stood tall as the guardians of European freedom providing much more than their fair share of the cost, providing military personnel, equipment and NATO funding to defend Europe from it’s potential enemies.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said “pointing to bruising meetings of G7 nations and NATO last week the days when Europe could completely count on others were “over to a certain extent.”
Merkel said “I can only say that we Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands, of course in friendship with the United States of America, in friendship with Great Britain and as good neighbors wherever that is possible also with other countries, even with Russia. We have to know that we must fight for our future on our own, for our destiny as Europeans.”
23 of the 28 member nations are not paying their fair share, what they should be paying.
President Trump said “This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States, and many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years, and not paying in those past years.”
President Trump pressed members of NATO to adjust their defense spending to meet the Wales pledge paying at least two percent of their GDP.
“Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on defense than all other NATO countries combined. 2 percent is the bare minimum for confronting today’s very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”
President Trump cited cost sharing and what he believed as NATO’s lack of focus on terrorism as his reason for calling it “obsolete.
What I’m saying is NATO is obsolete and it’s extremely expensive for the United States, disproportionately and we should readjust NATO. It’s going to have to be either readjusted to take care of terrorism or we’re going to have to set up a new coalition.”
