Gen. Vallely: Trump-Putin Meeting Could Happen This Summer

Gen. Vallely: Trump-Putin Meeting Could Happen This Summer

 

 

 

(Election Central With Rita Cosby)

By Cathy Burke   |   Monday, 13 Mar 2017 10:16 PM

A meeting between President Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin could occur this July — and rival the 1986 summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that ended the Cold War, retired Army Major Gen. Paul Vallely predicts.

In an interview on “Election Central with Rita Cosby,” on WABC Radio, Vallely, in Moscow on March 1 at the Valdai Discussion Club Conference, said he believes the meeting might take place before the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

“When I was in Moscow, one of the messages that I did receive that I can tell you [is] that President Putin understands from his standpoint what’s going on in the United States, and that Trump should be very patient, and that Putin is willing to meet with Trump at some point in time, because… we’re not going to solve the situation in Syria, the Middle East, without working with Turkey and with Russia,” he told Cosby.

The message, he said, was relayed to him through an unofficial channel — a British spy Vallely knows.

“The message is, basically, Putin understands these deceptive things that are going on in the political environment in the United States, and that he’ll be very patient from the standpoint of waiting, and if Trump decides, or wants to, he’ll be willing to meet with him,” Vallely said.

He added that the message suggested “maybe we can do a thing in Reykjavik, Iceland again, as Gorbachev and Reagan had to do when we saw the [Berlin] wall come down after that.”

“So, it’s more positive and I think President Trump understands that it’s more positive to meet with Putin and talk about the issues at hand, rather than trying to be adversarial,” Vallely said.

He said the Trump administration hasn’t responded yet.

“I think they’ve got other things on their plate right now,” he said. “But they know, and it’s something that can occur…. I’d say 90 days, maybe 120. I mean, I don’t know for sure, that’s up to the White House… but… it would be before the G20 conference in July.”

Vallely also revealed the Russians “like” Donald Trump.

“They see America finally with somebody with common sense that they can reason with,” Vallely said, adding that when the Russians “tried to reach back through a number of people to the Obama administration… the Obama administration would not reach back to the Russians at all.”

“And so we’re getting a Reagan-esqe type of approach now with Trump, who takes politics out of it and looks how to solve the problems, and you can only do that when you can make a deal with these people, and that’s what you have to do, bilateral deals.”

“So, it’s more positive and I think President Trump understands that it’s more positive to meet with Putin and talk about the issues at hand, rather than trying to be adversarial,” Vallely said.

Marine Le Pen will make France Great Again by Michael Flanagan

Editor’s Note: From our great friend and regular SUA contributor, Michael Flanagan. Former Congressman Flanagan is president of Michael Flanagan Consulting, a practicing attorney, and is a former Captain in the U.S. Army and has worked for the U.S. State Department. 

 


Recently, I travelled to France to speak at a Franco-American friendship gathering assembled to celebrate the inauguration of America’s forty-fifth President.  On that trip, I had the pleasure of a private dinner with Marine La Pen and with Major General (ret) Paul Vallely.  General Vallely was our host and has long been involved in international affairs as they relate to the United States.

Ms. Le Pen was thoughtful, pleasant, informed and a true daughter of France.  She loves her country in that special way that motivates all of us to support her love affair and emulate it in our own lives and for our own country.

Like many Americans, Ms. Le Pen loves everybody but feels that her country is for her countrymen and not a potential residence for anyone in the world who wants to come.  Like many Americans, she believes that France has the right and responsibility to carefully select those whom should live among them and does not apologize for this.

Ms. Le Pen questions and largely rejects the belief that a thin veneer of overlords known as the EU Parliament and its financial backers should make all of the rules for half a billion people located among the most diverse and differing ethnicities on the earth.  She believes that the French should govern France, not a collection of other Europeans assembled from these differing ethnicities.

Ms. Le Pen rejects collectivism in economic terms as well as political ones.  She embraces the free-market and trade deals among nations close and far.  She would like France to reject the Euro and re-establish the French Franc as Great Britain still uses the British Pound.

Ms. Le Pen also is as perplexed as many Americans are that these things are in any way controversial things to say – much less hateful as the Left calls them.

Ms. Le Pen is running ahead of the pack in the preliminary elections to be held in April.  That election will be shortly followed by the run-off between the top two vote getters.  Ms. Le Pen is a shoe-in to be among the top two – in fact, the first.

Interestingly, the second contender will be the right-of -center traditional party, the Republican candidate, Francois Fillon.  Because Fillon is plagued with personal controversies, he is fading in the pack.  Le Pen is doing all of the right things and, consequently, her numbers are growing daily.

These two contenders on the Right consume well over half of the expected vote.  Consequentially, as was quoted to me repeatedly in France, “the Left is finished.”  The last time the national leader of France was as unpopular as Hollande is now, they cut his head off.

Le Pen has been working very hard on her positions and her image which has been blighted by past sins of her party, The National Front, and by a biased, left-leaning media.  To rebut unfounded attacks on her affection for all Frenchmen, she has secured very favorable statements by Mr. Gilles-William Goldnadel and by Mr. Roger Cukierman both prominent Jewish leaders in France.

Unlike so many in America, she would be thrilled with an endorsement by our President and believes that his election was the beginning of a long line of leaders all over the world to be cut from that same cloth as President Trump was.  The Trump Administration has so far been reluctant to get into the mix over there but there is time, if they are so inclined.  I hope that they seriously consider an endorsement.

Like Trump, she enjoys a cross-section of France supporting her and has strong support on the traditional sector of the country.  This may entice out a previously-unknown percentage of the vote, until now hidden – a’ la Brexit and Trump.

Young people are enjoying a re-awakening of what it means to be French in its grandest tradition and these folks make-up a surprisingly large part of her enthusiastic supporters.  The excitement of youth working for something is both infectious and heart-warming.  It is nice to see young people building something like they are over there as opposed to being paid by George Soros to pull things down like they do over here.

Marine Le Pen is on the march and I am hopeful for her success in April.  It will be a shock to the EU and will embolden so many others in Europe and around the world to re-embrace the nation-state as a the best means for a peaceful coexistence in the world.

FRENCH ALLIES WELCOME TRUMP INNAUGURATION WITH APPLAUSE, ENTHUSIASM by Rosine Ghwaji

FRENCH ALLIES WELCOME TRUMP INNAUGURATION WITH APPLAUSE, ENTHUSIASM

By Rosine Ghawji

As President Donald J. Trump took the oath of office at noon on Friday, some 3800 miles away in the French capital, a group of dozens of high-ranking French dignitaries hosted an American delegation in a festive celebration sponsored by French-American Friendship Association of Paris.  French dignitaries included members of the French Parliament, Members of the European Parliament, and members of academia and other elected officials

The American military and congressional contingent included Retired General Paul Vallely, former Deputy Commander of United States Pacific Command, former Congressman Mike Flanagan of Illinois, and best-selling military author and former U.S. Navy JAG Officer, Lieutenant Commander Don Brown, who represented four-star retired admiral James “Ace” Lyons, former commander of the United States Pacific Fleet.  Members of the French-Russian Association of Paris also attended to show support for the American delegation.

 

 

 

The event, held in the ballroom of Hotel Intercontinental Paris le Grand Hotel, and sponsored in part by the French-American Association of Paris, was covered in Europe and the Middle East by the I-24 Network, and by internationally-acclaimed journalist Christian Malard, who has interviewed more world leaders than any other active journalist.

President Trump’s inaugural address was applauded by the French hosts several times, but perhaps the most enthusiastic applause, surprisingly, came when the new President proclaimed “America First.”

After the inauguration, the French hosted a large cocktail party, followed by a large formal banquet in the Hotel’s grand Ballroom, which commenced with the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. After dinner, all members of the U.S. Delegation addressed the crowd, along with historian Frank Mitchell, author of DONALD TRUMP’S PLACE IN HISTORY: The Untold Story.

The loudest and most sustained applause came when Don Brown delivered Admiral Lyons’ remarks on advice the Admiral would give to President Trump. Addressing the crowd in French, Russian and English, Brown presented Lyons’ speech, which declared that America’s “eight-year nightmare with Barak Obama is finally over.” He called on President Trump to eradicate the Muslim Brotherhood from all positions in the federal government, to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, and to prosecute its members for sedition. To each of these suggestions, the crowd enthusiastically responded with approval and applause.

 

 

 

The historic Intercontinental Paris Le Grand Hotel, built in 1861 at the request of Emperor Napoleon III, has been the site for numerous Franco-American diplomatic events in the past, and has hosted prominent American leaders including Presidents Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, and Dwight Eisenhower. It has also hosted other notable Americans, including Ernest Hemmingway, Orson Wells, and Gregory Peck.

The historic commemoration of the Trump inauguration marks the first known event in which the French have invited an American delegation to celebrate the inauguration of an American President.

Who is the MEK?

November 2016

 by Alireza Jafarzadeh

Formed in 1965, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the largest and best-organized Iranian opposition movement, is the main component of the coalition, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which acts as the parliament-in-exile.

The NCRI and MEK, have been committed to a secular, democratic, non-nuclear republic; gender equality; freedom of religion, thought, press, and association; support for peace in the Middle East; and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The president-elect of the NCRI is Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, who addressed a rally of 100,000 in Paris, well attended by dozens of prominent speakers from all over the world.

A. The MEK role was critical in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb

 

The MEK has been instrumental in exposing Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Relying on a vast network inside Iran, MEK revelations of the weapons program significantly contributed to the world peace and the national security of the United States.

 

These revelations triggered the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections of the uranium enrichment facility in Natanz and Heavy Water Facility in Arak in 2002 for the first time, and since then, the majority of the visits by the IAEA inspection teams have been to the sites first exposed by the MEK.

 

Senior U.S. officials including President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have repeatedly pointed to the role the MEK had played in getting the world attention on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

 

In March 2005, President, George W. Bush, emphasized that the MEK’s revelation of Natanz prompted an international campaign to stop the nuclear weapons program of Iran. “Iran has concealed its — a nuclear program. That became discovered, not because of their compliance with the IAEA or NPT, but because a dissident group pointed it out to the world.”

 

Many of the key front companies exposed by the MEK such as Mesbah Energy, Novin Energy, Kalaye Electric, Kavoshyar Company, and Farayand Technique were eventually sanctioned by the Treasury Department. In July 2011, the MEK exposed a new nuclear organization overseeing the entire nuclear program and run by the military, known as SPND. The U.S. Government designated that entity in 2014. In addition, many companies, key nuclear experts, and military institutions exposed by the MEK have been sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council resolutions 1737, 1747, and 1803.

 

If it were not for the MEK nuclear revelations, Tehran would have had the bomb by now. Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) told a House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing “We all owe a debt of gratitude to the MEK for bringing this information to the world, and causing the United States and the world to focus on the problem.”

 

B. MEK exposed the terrorist network of Iran

 

The MEK has played a key role in exposing the terrorist operations by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and its entity, the Qods Force. MEK’s actionable intelligence on Qods Force operations in Iraq saved many lives, and thwarted many terrorist operations by the Iranian regime.

 

MEK documented the details of the Qods force production and shipment of advanced EFP’s (Explosively Formed Projectiles), the number one killer of U.S. forces in Iraq. MEK also exposed Iran’s involvement in the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 American servicemen.

 

C. MEK enjoys extensive bi-partisan support in U.S. Congress

 

Over the past two decades, MEK has gained extensive support among a large bi-partisan group of members of congress. Congress strongly rejected MEK’s FTO designation, which it viewed as a goodwill gesture to Tehran, as 99 members (52 D and 47 R) called for the group’s delisting. Secretary Clinton revoked the designation in 2012, after being urged by the U.S. Court of Appeals- DC Circuit.

 

Congress held hearings in the House and the Senate strongly supporting the safety & security of thousands of MEK members based in camps Ashraf and Liberty in Iraq, as they were being subject to attacks instigated by Tehran. There were several pieces of legislations in support of MEK members in Iraq, e.g., H.Res.704 with 224 co-sponsors (126 D and 98 R).

 

In addition, the National Defense Authorization Act for the fiscal year 2016, signed by President Obama and became law, included a language in support of the “security and protection” of MEK members in Camp Liberty, Iraq.

 

Secretary of State John Kerry lauded the resettlement of all members of “exiled Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin e-Khalq, or MEK,” from Iraq to Europe in September 2016, emphasizing that “their departure concludes a significant American diplomatic initiative that has assured the safety of more than 3,000 MEK members whose lives have been under threat…I first became involved in this effort when I was in the Senate … I’m very proud that the United States was able to play a pivotal role in helping to get this job done.”

 

Also, the U.S. military fully protected all the MEK members in Iraq and recognized them as “protected persons” under the 4th Geneva Convention, long before the group was delisted.

 

D. MEK has been leading the opposition against the regime at home and abroad

 

MEK has been in the forefront of opposition to the mullahs since early days of the 1979 revolution, when it soon become the number one target of the Iranian regime’s repression.

 

The rulers of Iran view the MEK as an existential threat due to its support at home, and undermining the regime’s Islamic extremist ideology among a vast majority of the Iranian population, especially the youth. MEK’s modern, tolerant and democratic view on Islam has been the antithesis to the Islamic fundamentalists and the velayat-e faqih system. The MEK has been the main victim of repression in Iran. In Summer 1988, the Iranian regime, by direct order of Supreme Leader Khomeini, massacred 30,000 political prisoners, most members of MEK. Over 100,000 of its members have been murdered since 1981, and many of its supporters are currently jailed in notorious prisons across the country. Most of those arrested and sentenced to death after the summer 2009 uprising in Iran, belonged to the MEK.

 

After having failed to physically eliminate the MEK, Tehran waged an international effort to have the MEK designated as a terrorist organization, which eventually failed after all the designations were overturned in Europe and the U.S. with the help of over 20 court rulings. Eventually, Tehran embarked upon a multi-million-dollar campaign of character assassination and demonization, which described the MEK as a cult, to justify the policy of appeasement. None of those efforts succeeded.

Source: FBI has evidence Hillary visited ‘Orgy Island’

Huma Abedin said to be cooperating with investigators

Citing a “well-placed source” in the New York Police Department, Blackwater USA founder and retired Navy SEAL Erik Prince claims that among the 650,000 Huma Abedin emails on her estranged husband’s laptop is evidence Hillary Clinton, as well as former President Bill Clinton, was a visitor to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Caribbean hideaway, known as “Orgy Island.”

Prince told the Breitbart News Daily radio show that Abedin and her estranged husband, former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, are now cooperating with authorities in multiple investigations of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

“They found State Department emails,” he said of FBI investigators. “They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times.”

In May, FoxNews.com reported Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on Epstein’s infamous Boeing 727 “Lolita Express” jet than previously reported.

Flight logs show he took at least 26 trips and apparently even ditched his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights. The manifests for the trips, between 2001 and 2003, identified fellow passengers by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The jet was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

FoxNews.com reported in July that attorneys for Epstein touted his close friendship with Bill Clinton and even claimed the billionaire helped start the Clinton Global Initiative.

Emails that surfaced in August showed famed defense attorney Roy Black was deemed too controversial to host an event for President Obama because he represented Epstein against charges of trafficking nearly three-dozen underage girls for sex for himself and his powerful friends. Black and co-counsel Alan Dershowitz were able to secure a deal in 2008 in which Epstein pleaded guilty to only one count related to prostitution with a minor. Epstein registered as a sex offender and served, partly in home detention, just 13 months of a 19-month sentence.

Meanwhile, in a bizarre twist, Wikileaks published Friday an email inviting Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, to a “spirit cooking dinner” hosted by performance artist Marina Abramovic, which features an occult ritual created by Satanist Aleister Crowley.

A tweet from WikiLeaks’ Twitter account hinted there is far more to the story: “The Podestas’ ‘Spirit Cooking’ dinner? It’s not what you think. It’s blood, sperm and breastmilk. But mostly blood.

John Podesta’s brother, Tony Podesta, forwarded the June 28, 2015, email in which Abramovic wrote: “I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina.”

Tony Podesta wrote to his brother, above the forwarded email: “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9 Marina wants you to come to dinner.”

In another tweet regarding the exchange, WikiLeaks commented: “Tony Podesta. By Day, mild mannered Foreign Agent for Saudi Arabia. By night, Spirit Cooker.”

Abramovic was touted in New York Magazine as “the world’s most famous performance artist.” She has published a new memoir, “Walk Through Walls,” and appeared in a video with rapper Jay Z, who is campaigning for Hillary Clinton tonight in Ohio.

‘So disgusting’

Prince said the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in the Weiner investigation but received “huge pushback” from the Justice Department.

“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince told Breitbart News Daily.

Abedin, who has been at Hillary Clinton’s side throughout the 2016 campaign, was immediately removed from the campaign trail after FBI Director James Comey informed Congress last Friday of the discovery of the 650,000 emails and the decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information.

Abedin appeared for the first time on behalf of Clinton since last Friday at a fundraiser Thursday night in Washington, D.C., CBS News reported.

Clinton campaign aides confirmed to CBS she was working from the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters this week.
