Why is Trump’s Portrait Still Missing from Thousands of Federal Buildings?

It is standard practice for all Federal buildings to have a Portrait of the President, as well as a portrait of the respective agency heads hanging on the wall, near the entrance of the building. Nine months the inauguration of President Trump, pictures of he and VP Pence have still not been displayed in thousands of federal buildings.

On January 20th, portraits of Joe Biden and Barack Obama were removed from the walls of federal buildings. Now what remains in many federal buildings is a blank wall. Yet many federal buildings have received portraits of their agency heads, even though in many cases those people were confirmed by congress months after the inauguration.

The people in charge of making sure that federal buildings receive these photos are known as the General Services Administration. This agency would normally deliver photos of the President and Vice President to all 9,600 federal buildings within 1-2 months of the inauguration.

According to the Washington Post. the Government Publishing Office says it has yet to receive the images from the White House.

The agency spokesman for the GPO (Government Publishing Office), told the Washington Post that:

“GPO is standing by to reproduce copies of the president and the vice president’s photos for official use in federal facilities and will do so as soon as the official photo files are provided to us,” agency spokesman Gary Somerset said in email.

He added, “I do not have a timeline on when GPO will receive those files from the White House.”

Whatever the true cause of the mishap is, it is certainly turning heads and causing outrage around the country.

Top US Nuke General John Hayden Says He Would Refuse to Carry Out Nuclear Strikes for Trump

A top US Air Force General claims that he would refuse orders from the Commander In Chief that he perceives to be illegal.

Reuter Reports: 

CBS News said Air Force General John Hyten, commander of the U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM), told an audience at the Halifax International Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada that he had given a lot of thought to what he would say if he received such an order.

“I think some people think we’re stupid,” Hyten said in response to a question about such a scenario. “We’re not stupid people. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility, how do you not think about it?”

“As head of STRATCOM, I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do,” he said.

“And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I‘m going to say, ‘Mr. President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up (with) options, with a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.”

Hyten said running through scenarios of how to react in the event of an illegal order was standard practice, and added: “If you execute an unlawful order, you will go to jail. You could go to jail for the rest of your life.”

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Hyten’s remarks.

They came after questions by U.S. senators, including Democrats and Trump’s fellow Republicans, about Trump’s authority to wage war, use nuclear weapons and enter into or end international agreements, amid concern that tensions over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs could lead to hostilities.

Trump has traded insults and threats with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un and threatened in his maiden United Nations address to “totally destroy” the country of 26 million people if it threatened the United States.

North Korea rules out negotiations on nuclear weapons

From Reuters

North Korea on Friday ruled out negotiations with Washington as long as joint U.S-South Korea military exercises continue, and said that Pyongyang’s atomic weapons program would remain as a deterrent against a U.S. nuclear threat.

In an interview with Reuters, Han Tae Song, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, brushed off the new sanctions which the Trump administration has said it is preparing, as well as the possibility of North Korea being added to a U.S. list of states sponsoring terrorism.

South Korea and the United States agreed on Friday to keep working for a peaceful end to the North Korean nuclear crisis, but a U.S. envoy said it was difficult to gauge the reclusive North’s intentions as there has been “no signal”.

Han, asked about those bilateral talks in Seoul, replied: “As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the U.S. and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations.”

“There are continued military exercises using nuclear assets as well as aircraft carriers, and strategic bombers and then…raising such kinds of military exercises against my country,” he said.

He, who is ambassador to the U.N.’s Conference on Disarmament, was speaking at the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) mission in Geneva, where the DPRK and the United States secured a 1994 nuclear deal which later fell apart.

“The DPRK, my country, will continue to build-up its self-defense capability, the pivot of which is nuclear forces and capability for a triumphant…strike as long as U.S. and hostile forces keep up nuclear threat and blackmail,” Han said.

“Our country plans ultimate completion of the nuclear force,” he said.

‘NUCLEAR DETERRENT’

China said on Thursday that a “dual suspension” proposal to handle North Korea was still the best option, after U.S. President Donald Trump said he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had rejected a “freeze for freeze” agreement.

Han, asked about China’s latest appeal for a freeze, said “the situation is far from those things”.

Han said that U.S. administrations had “never accepted” halting joint military exercises, adding: “So if they accept such things, then we will think what we do in the future.”

North Korea could not consider abandoning its nuclear program, he said, adding: “This is the deterrent, the nuclear deterrent to cope with the nuclear threat from America.”

Han said that Trump was expected to announce further sanctions against North Korea. Existing sanctions have constituted “large-scale human rights violations” that had delayed delivery of aid and consumer goods, he said.

“It is obvious that the aim of the sanctions is to overthrow the system of my country by isolating and stifling it and to intentionally bring about humanitarian disaster instead of preventing weapons development as claimed by the U.S. and its followers,” he said.

Han, asked whether new U.S. sanctions were expected against North Korean individuals or financial structures, said:

”The media is saying the Americans and Trump are considering such things.

”But that is their business and then we don’t mind what they want to do against my country since the aim is quite clear.

“So we are ready for such kinds of measures taken by America against my country,” he said.

Oops! Russia’s $100K Facebook Ad-Buy was ANTI-Trump

Spread the Truth

For the first time, lawmakers have released the Facebook ads purchased by Russian entities. Unsurprisingly, the ads were anti-Trump. Facebooks release of the Russian ads raises questions about the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia aimed to help President Trump get elected.

The ads range from messages supporting Black Lives Matter to ads saying that Trump is “Not My President”.

While some of the ads racked up just a few hundred views, others were seen close to a million times.

Ads targeting Hillary supporting Muslim demographics were among the most provocative.

One ad targeting LGBT voters appeared to support the Campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (D).

Many of the ads supported the Black Lives Matter movement. While some of the Black Live Matter ads were vague, others promoted specific events, referring to them as “Blactivist”.
