Canada announces ‘Trudeau Doctrine’ that ignores Trump and strengthens NATO

Published

on

According to a report by Canada’s Globe & Mail newspaper, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s response to President Donald Trump’s spurning of NATO’s Article 5 is to “wait out” Trump’s presidency, and strengthen their relationships with the rest of their European and Asian allies.

In an address by Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, the post-NATO “Trudeau doctrine” aims to offer an anti-isolationist response to Trump’s “America First” policy.

“Many of the voters in last year’s presidential election cast their ballots, animated in part by a desire to shrug off the burden of world leadership,” Freeland said, referencing Trump’s November win. “To say this is not controversial: it is simply a fact.”

“Canada is grateful, and will always be grateful, to our neighbor for the outsized role it has played in the world. And we seek and will continue to seek to persuade our friends that their continued international leadership is very much in their national interest—as well as that of the rest of the free world,” Freeland said. “Yet we also recognize that this is ultimately not our decision to make. It is a choice Americans must make for themselves.”

GOP appointees considered disloyal to Trump won’t be spared as president’s new hatchet-man begins purge: report

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
