Trump’s Latest Plan For Isis Is Bomb The Shit Out Of Them And Send In Exxon To Rebuild

ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because of the oil that they took away, they have some in Syria, they have some in Iraq, I would bomb the shit out of them.

I would just bomb those suckers, and that’s right, I’d blow up the pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, I’d blow up ever single inch, there would be nothing left.

And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there, and in two months, you ever see these guys? How good they are, the great oil companies, they’ll rebuild it brand new… And I’ll take the oil.

President Obama Defends Iran Deal At American University Full Speech 8/5/2015

President Barack Obama delivers a speech addressing the “signature foreign policy achievement” of his administration, the nuclear deal with Iran, from American University’s School of International Service, the largest and oldest school of diplomacy in the U.S.A.

The White House says they chose American University in Washington D.C., because it is where President John F. Kennedy made his famous 1963 speech in which he called for full nuclear disarmament and peace with the Soviet Union.

President Obama Says He Has Been Called The First Jewish President

On Friday, President Obama spoke at a Jewish American Heritage Month celebration being held at the Adas Israel synagogue in Washington, D.C. While wearing a yarmulke, Obama cited his two Jewish former chiefs of staff, saying he has been called America’s “first Jewish president” by Jeffrey Goldberg, who recently interviewed him for The Atlantic.

Earlier this week, I was actually interviewed by one of your members, Jeff Goldberg. Jeff reminded me he once called me the first Jewish president. Now, since some people still seem to be wondering about my faith, I should make clear this is an honorary title, but I was flattered. And as an honorary member of the tribe not to mention somebody who has hosted 7 White House seders and has been advised by [applause] — and been advised by two Jewish chiefs of staff, I can also say that I am probably getting a little bit of the hang of the lingo.

Elizabeth Warren Says This Secret Trade Deal Is Just Not How A Democracy Is Supposed To Work

Senator Elizabeth Warren took to the Senate floor this afternoon to blast the Trans-Pacific trade agreement (TPP) and the Obama administration for keeping it so secretive. According to Warren, “members of Congress, as Senator Manchin said, can read it so long as they go into a secret room and don’t leave with any notes. But even members of Congress are prohibited from talking about the details in public or discussing the details with the people that they were sent to Washington to represent. And yet in the next day or two the Senate is scheduled to vote on whether to grease the skids to make that secret trade deal, the TPP, the law of the land. This isn’t how democracy is supposed to work.” Warren explained there are those that believe, “we should keep the deal secret because if the details were made public now, the public would oppose it.”

Hillary Clinton Wants The Emails Released To Show How Hard They Worked At State Department

After an event in Cedar Falls, Iowa, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented on the pending State Department release of her private emails. Clinton responded to a question on the missing emails saying, “nobody has a bigger interest in getting them released than I do. I respect the State Department, they have their process that they do for everyone, not just me, but anything they might do to expedite the process, I heartily support. I want the American people to learn as much as we can about the work that I did with our diplomats and our development experts because I think it will show how hard we worked and what we did for our country during the time when I was Secretary of State.” When pressed further on the emails Clinton claimed they weren’t hers, instead “they belong to the State Department.” So it’s not her fault they have not been released yet.
