Trump’s Surprising Speech In Saudi Arabia & Signing Of The Largest U.S. Arms Deal To Date

Published

on

A lot of change occurred within the global political landscape this week (or so it seems). We saw President Donald Trump deliver a powerful keynote speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudi Arabia, where  he signed the largest arms deal in U.S. history.

Instead of being a speech about “radical Islam,” which many believe to be a creation of the western military alliance, his speech in Saudi Arabia was one that discussed a future of peace and unity. Though it still contained a bit of fear mongering, it came as a surprise to many. Trump even announced that the U.S. was going to stop financing terrorist groups, a move that presumably would upset the elite and those who profit off war and terror. The fact that he has called out the US government multiple times for funding terrorism, is quite remarkable. It’s something that prior presidents never even talked about.

During his visit, Trump also signed the United States’ single largest arms deal to date, valuing at a whopping $350 billion with Saudi Arabia. However, when it comes to politics, things are rarely as they seem. Why is the Trump administration rewarding Saudi Arabia’s war crimes with more weaponry, and how will his promises affect global politics?

Details from Trump’s Speech in Saudi Arabia

Before I begin to analyze Trump’s address, it’s important to note that he didn’t actually write his speech himself. The speech was drafted by Stephen Miller, Senior Adviser for Policy and Speechwriter, who is well-known for his Islamophobic rhetorics, and the same individual who actually wrote Trump’s controversial travel ban.

This is another clear example of why we cannot trust what politicians say. This speech wasn’t even produced by the President himself, it was drafted by an advisor, so who knows what his actual views are. Secondly, Trump made some fairly racist remarks during his campaign, and now he is all of a sudden a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion. If anything, this is another example that proves how politicians will do and say anything in order to gain support from the public (or in many cases, the elite).

Here are some of the notable quotes from the speech:

After highlighting some of the more beautiful aspects of the Middle East, Trump explained, “But this untapped potential, this tremendous cause for optimism, is held at bay by bloodshed and terror. There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it.”

He then went on to address the sacredness of the land and why we shouldn’t be encouraging so much death and destructing, not just in the Middle East but everywhere, stating, “Terrorism has spread across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land.”

Trump announced that the U.S. would act as a friend of Saudi Arabia’s, noting, “America is prepared to stand with you—in pursuit of shared interests and common security.”

Here’s where the speech truly gets interesting. Up until this point, Trump has simply said some kind words on peace and a hopeful tomorrow, but now he proceeds to discuss how this newfound peace will come into fruition.

Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention.

Keep in mind that this is a very different stance than the U.S. government usually takes anywhere. Sudden intervention into conflicts in other countries has been the strategy of choice for many years now, and even the Trump administration demonstrated this when they chose to launch 50 missiles at Syria in response to the “chemical attack,” which the Syrian  and Russian President claimed was a false-flag attack orchestrated by the United States.

“Definitely, 100% for us, it’s fabrication… Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists. They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack,” President Assad said. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

Nevertheless, perhaps Trump’s words are sincere, or maybe the U.S. government only wants to extend their kindness to Saudi Arabia for an ulterior motive. At this point, it’s unclear. However, if they do put a halt to sudden interventions, this will not be a welcomed approach by many corporations and the elite who profit off war and chaos.

Trump continued:

I am proud to announce that the nations here today will be signing an agreement to prevent the financing of terrorism, called the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center – co-chaired by the United States and Saudi Arabia, and joined by every member of the Gulf Cooperation Council. It is another historic step in a day that will be long remembered.

This is perhaps the most noteworthy statement Trump made during his speech. The U.S. has funded terrorist groups for at least the past 20 years, which has been proven by various government documents and has been openly discussed by numerous members of the government. Halting the funding to terrorist groups would be a huge financial loss to the U.S. government.

U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard addressed U.S. arms sales to ISIS and other terrorist groups in a speech, offering a compelling call to action in the process:

I return to Washington, DC with even greater resolve to end our illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government. I call upon Congress and the new Administration to answer the pleas of the Syrian people immediately and support the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. We must stop directly and indirectly supporting terrorists—directly by providing weapons, training and logistical support to rebel groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and ISIS; and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, and Turkey, who, in turn, support these terrorist groups. We must end our war to overthrow the Syrian government and focus our attention on defeating al-Qaeda and ISIS.

You can read our CE article about it here.

The Treasury described the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC) as a “collaborative approach to confronting new and evolving threats arising from terrorist financing.” The TFTC’s primary goals include identifying, tracking and sharing information on terrorist financing, with a focus on disrupting the flow of finances and weaponry while also providing support to the region in order to deprive radical groups such as Islamic State and al Qaeda. To be clear, these are the very groups that the U.S. funds, so this would be a significant change in regime for the U.S. government.

Congresswoman Gabbard actually already commented on the TFTC, referring to it as a “farce,” which isn’t much of a surprise given many of the countries history in funding terrorists and their extreme interpretation of Islam.

So, how does the new U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia relate to all of this?

Trump Rewards Saudi War Crimes With $350 Billion Worth of Weapons

In October 2016, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition bombed an entire funeral hall in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, injuring and killing hundreds of civilians. Almost immediately after, the Obama administration suspended the sale of approximately $400 million worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia.

The United Nations statement on Yemen states, “Nearly 2.2 million children in Yemen are acutely malnourished and require urgent care. At least 462,000 children suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), a drastic increase of almost 200 per cent since 2014.” What’s worse is that the U.S. is in part to blame for this, as Human Rights Watch found remnants of U.S. laser-guided or satellite-guided munitions at three strike locations, two of which resulted in civilian casualties.

The worsening state of Yemen is also a direct result of the war fuelled by the Saudis, who purchase arms from the U.S.. In December 2016, the U.S. announced that they would stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia due to the extreme violence and increasing number of deaths in Yemen. However, this was likely a PR stunt, as the U.S. was still planning to continue to support Morocco, Qatar, and the U.A.E. at the time, which all play significant roles in the Saudi-led coalition.

Even Congresswoman Gabbard was quoted as saying that the “CIA has also been funnelling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda.”

And now, we have Trump, who literally just expressed his sentiments to all countries experiencing war and terror and pledged to help create a more peaceful future for all, signing a $350 billion deal to sell weapons to a country that fuels war and terror. It makes you question why he gave that speech in the first place: Was it all just a massive PR stunt to make the public think that the U.S. is fighting war and terror, when in reality they’re funding it?

Though the $350 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia will be over the span of 10 years, approximately $110 billion will be taken into effect immediately. The U.S. Department of State said in a statement on Saturday:

“This package of defense equipment and services supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian related threats. Additionally, it bolsters the Kingdom’s ability to provide for its own security and continue contributing to counterterrorism operations across the region, reducing the burden on US military forces.”

Final Thoughts 

To me, this sounds as if Trump wants Saudi Arabia to do the U.S. government’s dirty work. This begs the question: How long will Saudi Arabia agree to do so? By holding active deals with Saudi Arabia, the U.S. government isn’t just putting their reputation at risk, they’re putting all Americans in the cross fire, so to speak. If the U.S. continues to sell arms to a country that has violated the laws of war numerous times, it’s exposing U.S. officials to legal liability for aiding and abetting coalition war crimes.

Let’s keep in mind that Trump isn’t really the one who’s in charge here, he could just be the political puppet of choice. We know he didn’t write the speech, and realistically he’s probably not making these decisions either. Ask yourself: What groups of people profit from chaos and violence the most?

When it comes to alleged “terrorist attacks,” wars, and any type of violence or chaos, the sad truth is that the government, the shadow government, or the elite are often involved. Regardless, the U.S. government is ultimately controlled by the cabal, but both of them have two common interests: profit and control. So, is Trump really looking to inspire peace, or is he somehow profiting from the chaos? Perhaps the answer to that question is both, but after looking at this new Saudi Arabia arms deal, it’s clear that there is truth in the latter.

On a final note, this information isn’t meant to scare readers. We believe that through education and raising consciousness, we can create positive change. The more we think for ourselves and search for the truth, the greater the potential for change!

Al Sharpton Cancels NYC ‘Vaccine Forum’ Amid Pressure From Physicians – But It’s Happening Anyway

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Amid pressure from scientists and physicians, Al Sharpton cancels vaccine forum event aimed at educating the public about potential vaccine dangers. But the event is still on in a new location!

  • Reflect On:

    Why such a concerted effort from the establishment to shut down public events aimed at educating people about safety concerns regarding vaccines? If there was nothing to hide, why shut them down so aggressively?

The Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network were set to host a “vaccine forum” on Oct 19th, 2019 in Harlem that would feature speakers focused on raising awareness about vaccine injuries and lack of vaccine safety.

The event was going to take place at National Action Network’s headquarters on 145th Street, and Sharpton was slated to welcome guests, alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is currently suing New York State for removing the option for parents to exercise religious exemptions to vaccines.

After the event was shut down at NAN due to pressure from prominent vaccine supporters, the location was moved to an Assembly Hall at Riverside Church. (More details below.)

Dr. Peter Hotez, who has refused to publicly debate Robert F Kennedy Jr on the matters of vaccine safety, was one of the individuals trying to shut down the event. When speaking of Sharpton he stated:

“His organization should not be hosting this event,” he said. “He should not be appearing at this event. This is an event which is intended to deliberately work towards depriving kids in Harlem of their life-saving vaccines and to make parents question the safety of those vaccines.”

Not all share Hotez’s opinion that vaccines are a safe, one size fits all pharmaceutical. And there is much evidence to support those doubts. Hence why the vaccine awareness movement is rapidly growing, it’s evidence based and that’s becoming more obvious as each day goes by.

If there was no evidence vaccines come with serious dangers, this argument would have died out years ago. Take for example the resurgence of topics like flat earth, it had celebrity backing and was an internet phenomenon, but it died off quickly as there simply is no evidence to support the idea. With vaccines, it’s much different. More and more prominent, credible and credentialed individuals are joining the movement because the evidence continues to mount. Their goal is to assess vaccine safety and stop government from trying to force vaccines on everyone due to pharmaceutical pressures.

Dr. Sean O’Leary with the American Academy of Pediatrics also outspoken about the event:

“Just when we get done with the measles outbreak, actions like this threaten the public’s health by starting another measles outbreak, […] Here, in another part of New York City, we have folks ready to go into a community and spread more misinformation and pseudoscience.”

Again, more misinformed and opinionated statements from individuals that perhaps are simply not attempting to see the truth or who are pressured not to speak the truth. The body of evidence that expresses the lack of vaccine safety is vast. For example, a pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research found that 1 in 39 kids are injured by vaccines in some way, contrary to the estimate put forth by the CDC that suggests 1 in a million are injured –  that’s quite the gap.

It brings up the question, if there is nothing to hide in the actions of pharmaceutical companies, why are they protected by laws from ever being sued for vaccine injuries and harm? Why are public debates on the issue always cancelled? Why does the media work so hard to turn people to question things into ‘antivaxxers?’ Why do we (CE) had our reach limited on Facebook and receive ‘fake news’ strikes every time we report on vaccines? – even when the information is completely fact based…

Because there is something to hide here. If there was nothing to hide, big pharma and their control over congress, government, media, some scientists and doctors would not be working so hard to shut down people who have figured out the truth.

“It is a grave warning sign for American democracy that the pharmaceutical industry is now so powerful that it can silence debate, even in the traditional heart of civil rights activism” – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

If you are in the New York area, you can attend this free public event to understand more about vaccines safety on October 19th,  2019.

Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Sheila Ealey; John Gilmore; Dr. Phil Valentine; Curtis Cost; Dr. Lawrence Palevsky; Reverend Walter Sotelo; Mary Holland; Gary Null; Mitchel Cohen; and many more.

The event time and location is as follows:

Saturday, October 19th, 1:00-4:0 p.m.
Assembly Hall at Riverside Church
91 Claremont Avenue, New York, NY

Tulsi Gabbard Just Called Hillary Clinton The “Embodiment Of Corruption” And Much More

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Hillary Clinton just referred to Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset in an interview. Tulsi comes back at her on Twitter, exposing the true face of Clinton.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it not important we have more public conversations about the true nature of the politicians we vote for?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently suggested that she thinks Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is being “groomed” by Russia to run as a third-party candidate in 2020. Of course, she supplied no evidence of this, but using “Russia” in any sentence in the US is a sure-fire way of striking fear in people about someone.

In an interview with David Plouff, Obama’s former campaign manager, Clinton said:

“They’re also going to do third-party again, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Again, step out of part politics for a second, are we really going to pretend this is about parties and not the global elite being upset at someone who’s ruining their show? Think about it, Clinton used Facebook, Google, YouTube and almost every media outlet in the US to manipulate the public into thinking she was a viable candidate. Trump was keen to use social media, and played the role of causing drama, but at least he was transparent about it. Clinton on the other hand, is precisely what Gabbard stated about her in a follow-up Tweet to Clinton’s remarks.

When it comes to the US’ involvement in war, which Gabbard has been rightly critical about, she has also said that Trump “has the blood of the Kurds on his hands” but explained that she holds both parties responsible for supporting what she described as a “regime-change war.” Accurately seeing that this is not about parties but about deep state agendas.

The Takeaway

As we often say in step 1 of The CE Protocol, we have to break the illusion of the world around us. Events like this indicate that there is a greater desire for people to speak up and expose what many people have known for a long time but has never received the attention it deserves. Gabbard in this case is helping the American public see more clearly the true nature of some of the politicians at play and the actions they take.

When we learn to see these actions more clearly we can call into question whether or not our voting processes or systems are truly representative of what people want or whether they are just there to tell a story to the people – one that isn’t true – so money and power can be made and maintained at the elite level.

Needing to have open and public conversations about this type of stuff, moving beyond the mainstream media created celebrity status of various candidates, is important so that people can begin to see the truth – see the person behind the mask. This is partly what people see with Trump, the truth of what politicians look like, act like and where their agendas lie. It’s all laid bare. Whether or not you agree or disagree with it is up to you to decide, because at least now it can be seen clearly. Especially if you avoid mainstream media’s coverage of it.

This is Not A Movie, It’s October 1st, 2019 In Hong Kong

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Protests in Hong Kong rose to many tense moments over the past few months. This video footage shows clashes between riot police and protesters on Kowloon’s Nathan Road.

  • Reflect On:

    Have people reached a breaking point when it comes to how often they are not heard by governments?

In the video below, what looks like a Hollywood movie is the reality just a couple of weeks ago in Hong Kong. Riot police and protesters have been clashing for months as the streets become filled with hundreds of tear gas canisters and Molotov cocktails. Having covered the G20 summit in Toronto, these scenes appear much more tense than what I saw during those protests, and even those were filled with vandalism, pepper spray, burning cars and rubber bullets.

We’ve covered the Hong Kong protests a couple of times here on CE, including a full segment on CETV here.

There are obviously two perspectives as to what is going on, the Mainland China perspective and that of the Hong Kong protesters who feel Mainland China is acting wrongly. From the perspective of Mainland China, the protests in Hong Kong are fundamentally the result of Western interference and attempts at a ‘soft recolonization’ of Hong Kong. Their arguments have some merit.

From the Hongkongers perspective,  tensions rose after the introduction of an extradition bill that threatened residents’ freedoms. Protesters are demanding Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam resigns. They are also calling for:

  • The complete withdrawal of the proposed extradition bill
  • The government to withdraw the use of the word “riot” in relation to protests
  • The unconditional release of arrested protesters and charges against them dropped
  • An independent inquiry into police behaviour
  • Implementation of genuine universal suffrage

As with many things people are feeling at the moment, big government has been overreaching for quite some time, and freedoms continue to be cut while quality of life in our fast-paced modern society diminishes. What we must remember when viewing these issues is we can’t singularly look at each one and determine whether it’s right or wrong so easily. People are exposed to ‘hits’ from every direction to their wallets, freedom, health, lifestyle and psyche and our world is reflecting the feeling that ‘enough is enough.’

Since much of the time we aren’t sure what else to do, people fight back, they do what they think will lead them to being heard and having a solution brought forth. is this the best way forward? Perhaps not, but when it becomes clear to people that their governments and the voting process do not work in their benefit nor favor, this is sometimes what they revert to.
