The most powerful person in the free world.

 

And she's staring down at Donald Trump.

 

It looks like, John Bolton, the most dangerous man in the free world was there, too.

I wouldn't have thought that.

More powerful than Donald Trump?

Here's a relevant quote:

Also see the Daily Mail article from a couple of years ago: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3303677/Putin-declared-powerful-man-world-Forbes-magazine-Angela-Merkel-replacing-President-Obama-second-place.html

  • Putin is declared the most powerful man in the world by Forbes magazine... with Angela Merkel replacing President Obama in second place

  • Vladimir Putin is declared world's most powerful for third year in a row
  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel steals runner-up from Barack Obama
  • First year a sitting U.S. President has not made it into the top two 

 

It's a comment on how much power the US has supposedly lost due loss of trust in the US Gov't for negotiating power. Trump's pulling out of prior international agreements indicates to nations that the US cannot be trusted to keep an agreement, and therefore the US loses powerful leverage as a player among other nations. Germany keeps control over international monetary policy in a way that the US can no longer manage. And the potential drain on the "full faith and credit of the US Govt" backing our Treasury bonds. (The way we [USA] try to sell our debt to other countries to pay for things like Trump's trillion dollar tax cut to favor the wealthy. As it is we will have to raise interest rates on Treasury bonds to entice foreign countries to fund this trillion dollars.)

Oh YEAH??!! Well what about OUR TRUMP?!!!

(No, I am just kidding. I do not regard either of them as “ours,” no any human spokesperson. And I know you do not either; it is but a speechism.)

JUST  IN  OUR  TV  NEWS....   very  negative  about  TRUMP.... 

From  a  G7   TRUMP   made  a  G6.....    again  an  awkward  behavior !!

He  is  not  able  to  be  a  good  USA  President  -  maybe  better  for  a  little  country...  1f602.png1f923.png1f602.png

Historically, the Germans choice of leaders ( ...and Herr Hitler was elected as Chancellor of Germany ...) has not been that good.

........... In English there is the proverb about "the pot calling the kettle, black".

I find it very strange that President Trump has such a hard time getting along with the leaders of the world’s major democracies but feels very comfortable with despots and authoritarian leaders like Putin, Xi Jinping, Duterte and Mohammad Bin Salman.

And I find Bernie Sanders concerns actually, considering that he is a raving Socialist ... an implied endorsement of Trump, by people that are rational, knowledgeable, and reality based.

The Daily Signal published another photo, taken moments apart:

No particular tension in this one.

It makes one wonder how much is real and how much is selected just to convey a desired effect.

As a professional photographer, I know that photos taken fractions of a second apart can make people and dynamics look completely different ... and keep my camera on "continuous" shooting bursts 5 pictures to the second. 

Now that "film" is free, with digital cameras when I shoot a wedding sometimes I take two or three thousand pictures for that very reason.  My 64GB SD card will take more than 10,000 high resolution pictures before I have to change the card.  I do take along spare cameras and six fully charged batteries.

A fraction of a second can make all the difference!

    • Entre estos prisioneros se encuentra el cineasta Oleh Sentsov, condenado en 2015 a veinte años de cárcel por supuestas actividades terroristas en la península de Crimea y que lleva 34 días en huelga de hambre   Estados Unidos urgió este lunes al gobierno de Rusia a liberar "de inmediato" a más de 150 presos identificados por organizaciones internacionales como reos políticos y religiosos. "Pedimos a Rusia que libere de inmediato a todos los identificados como presos políticos o religiosos y cese su uso del sistema legal para reprimir a la disidencia y la práctica religiosa pacífica", señaló el Departamento de Estado en un comunicado. La portavoz de esta división, Heather Nauert, precisó en esa nota que la sociedad rusa "merece un trato igual ante la ley y la capacidad de ejercer sus derechos sin temor a represalias". En concreto, el gobierno de Donald Trump mostró una "especial preocupación" por el bienestar de cuatro reos ucranianos "injustamente encarcelados", según Nauert, que están actualmente en huelga de hambre. Entre estos presos se encuentra el caso del cineasta Oleh Sentsov, condenado en 2015 a 20 años de cárcel por supuestas actividades terroristas en la península de Crimea y que lleva 34 días sin ingerir alimentos en protesta por su confinamiento.     Oleh Sentsov (AP) EEUU destacó también los casos del activista Volodymyr Balukh, que lleva casi tres meses en huelga de hambre; del soldado Oleksandr Shumkov, que ha estado 23 días sin comer, y de Stanislav Klykh, que inició su huelga el pasado 9 de junio. Además, Nauert subrayó los casos del activista Oyub Titiyev, encarcelado "por acusaciones inventadas de drogas en Chechenia (Rusia)", y de un testigo de Jehová, Dennis Christensen, que permanece en una prisión rusa desde mayo de 2017 sin haber sido enjuiciado.

    • Hey ... they had "expenses" ! Yeah .... that's the ticket! "Expenses"
    • Things are thought of in Chicago quite differently ... it has a very long history of being a criminal hotbed, and unassailable corruption ... and the current Mayor, Rom Emmanuel ran for mayor (unofficially) on a platform of "let the murders continue .. it's good for business". (His being continually reelected). The thing you have to remember is that all crime is LOCAL, and all attempts at Justice are LOCAL.  This is almost ALWAYS true. A "good" Leader" ( that is to say, one that the people will follow ...) is a person that gives those over whom he has authority permission to do WHAT THEY  WERE GOING TO DO ANYWAY !! Trump has  nothing ... ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the massive murders going on in Democratic Party controlled Cities such as Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia,, Detroit ... in fact, he has threatened to replace their police departments with National Guard Troops, the corruption and malfeasance is so bad. Chicago has a particular immunity to change as their political machine is, and has been since the early 1920's, been geared to to allow people long dead,  to vote ... and vote OFTEN!   They always vote Democrat. Philadelphia had several precincts where NOT ONE PERSON voted for Trump. A statistical impossibility. But of course, it's like Josef Stalin once said (paraphrased...) "He who votes counts for nothing ... it's only he who counts the votes!". What you are experiencing is not new, not even real news ... as it is the normal condition of human mis-rule. If you are not willing to fight to the death ... LITERALLY ... and are prepared to be the first casualty ... you have no natural right to freedom from tyranny. Freedom is PURCHASED through mountains of bodies and oceans of blood, and if your wallet cannot take the hit, a slave you will remain. For me, the simplest solution is sell everything you own, and move somewhere else. During World War II, many Jews in Poland did just that ... and many who did not ....stayed, were rounded up and sent on around the world cruises up crematorium chimneys. There are only three choices ..... fight ... flee .... or be enslaved.
