With that kind of national debt,,,,,,,,,,they probably qualify as a poor country.Where and what is their collateral.??

U.S. imposes visa bans on International Criminal Court investigators - Pompeo

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will withdraw or deny visas to any International Criminal Court personnel investigating possible war crimes by U.S. forces or allies in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday.

The court, which sits in The Hague, responded that it was an independent and impartial institution and would continue to do its work “undeterred” by Washington’s actions.
The Trump administration threatened in September to ban ICC judges and prosecutors from entering the United States and sanction funds they have there if the court launched a probe of war crimes in Afghanistan.
Washington took the first step on Friday with Pompeo’s announcement.
“I’m announcing a policy of U.S. visa restrictions on those individuals directly responsible for any ICC investigation of U.S. personnel,” Pompeo told a news conference in Washington.
“These visa restrictions may also be used to deter ICC efforts to pursue allied personnel, including Israelis, without allies’ consent.”

The UK is abandoning its alliance with Trump as the United States 'withdraws from its leadership around the world'

  • The UK is threatening to tear up its defense alliance with the US after President Donald Trump's Iran crisis triggered a rupture between the two countries.
  • UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told The Sunday Times that the UK was looking to forge stronger alliances with other international partners that shared its priorities.
  • He said the US under Trump risked withdrawing from its global leadership role.
  • Wallace also said Trump threatened to tear up the US's intelligence-sharing relationship with the UK.
President Donald Trump's order to assassinate Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani has triggered a major rupture between the US and its historically closest ally, the UK.
In remarkably outspoken comments, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said in an interview published Sunday that Trump's isolationist foreign-policy stance had prompted the UK to look for alternative allies.
"I worry if the United States withdraws from its leadership around the world," he told The Sunday Times.
He added: "The assumptions of 2010 that we were always going to be part of a US coalition is really just not where we are going to be."
The comments came after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government distanced itself from the attack that killed Soleimani, with UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab labeling it a "dangerous escalation" that risked a conflict in which "terrorists would be the only winners."

I believe the evangelical right is itching to bring on Armageddon. They have been itching ever since the "moral majority" elected Raygun who promised to escalate nuclear proliferation.

I have long said that Trumps policies will isolate the US from the world, and that is exactly what is happening. His constant "America First fist pounding my dick is bigger than yours bullshit" will bite America in the ass.

An open letter from black church leaders and allies to Christianity Today

RNS) — We wanted to write collectively as a diverse group of ministerial leaders, doctorates, lay-persons and people who simply love God to express our sincere gratitude for Christianity Today’s printing of the brilliantly and objectively written article by (the magazine's then Editor-in-Chief) Mark Galli, entitled “Trump Should Be Removed from Office." We truly respect your organization’s stance on the stated principle “We want CT to be a place that welcomes Christians from across the political spectrum…”
The late Billy Graham, CT’s founder, gave us a loud warning in an article he wrote for Parade Magazine in 1981, when he said: “I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it.”
This is what we’re seeing today in 21st century evangelicalism: a broken marriage between a radical faction of the local church and the extreme right-wing faction of the Republican Party.
In a time when an estimated 70% of millennials no longer identify with Christianity and, as indicated in a previous issue, a resounding number of Generation Z’ers are twice as likely to become atheists, we cannot afford to sit back quietly and watch our faith be hijacked by those who are thirsty for political power. If we do, we will quickly develop what is described in the (Old Testament's) Book of Judges, “a generation that knew not the Lord nor the work he has done.”

Nah, Moosie has the perfect answer, in three phases. . .

Phase 1: Cheer that the Trump tax cut will make everything perfect.

Phase 2: When the debt and deficit forecasts come out, say "that hasn't happened yet."

Phase 3: When it does happen, refuse to say a word about the subject.

You won't hear much from him about Mexico paying for the wall, either, nor about how Trumpcare is going to be the best, cheapest health care you ever saw.

lol Trump bragged about replacing Obamacare in a couple weeks after he became president. Sometime back in June LAST year, he was bragging about finally doing just that, but changed the timeline to two months. Well, it's past the two months since June last year and still hasn't delivered. I hope someone has bought the poor idiot a calendar since then so he can see how long weeks and months are.
"Trump says he will announce 'phenomenal' new healthcare plan within the next two months" -https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-healthcare-plan-to-be-rolled-out-2019-6

"President Donald Trump on Monday claimed that 'nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,' ” - from February, 2017
Yeah, no-one knew about that at all and he had to personally discover it. lmao
