Is there method to Donald Trump’s supposed madness on trade? by Jim Jatras . . . I found this article to be very helpful in understanding Trump’s thinking.

Update: ‘Child Trafficking Camp’ Discovered in Arizona is Located on Clinton Foundation Donor CEMEX Property . . . Laura Walker’s report today indicated that a contingent of Veterans went to Arizona, to help do the job our Federal Government won’t do. I haven’t read about it elsewhere. Does anyone have any info on this? UPDATE: I’ve had time to look at the article, and the activities of our Veterans are discussed in it.

. . . and I’m thinking more and more that it is all happening on purpose! It looks to me like when things get absolutely nightmarish, we will then be offered the NWO. I will say again, however, what I’ve been saying for a very long time — that I don’t think it is going to work that way — and I think we will resolve it ourselves, without ET help. ~J 🙂

Pay very close attention to what India’s External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, said after meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier this week in New Delhi:
“Our foreign policy is not made under pressure from other countries … We recognize UN sanctions and not country-specific sanctions. We didn’t follow US sanctions on previous occasions either.”
After fellow BRICS members China and Russia, India left no margin for doubt. And there’s more; India will continue to buy oil from Iran – its third top supplier – and is willing to pay in rupees via state bank UCO, which is not exposed to the US. India bought 114% more oil from Iran during the financial year up to March 2018 than in the previous term.
India-US trade amounts to $115 billion a year. In comparison, India-Iran trade is only $13 billion a year. India may grow an impressive 7% in 2018 and has reached a GDP of $2.6 trillion, according to the IMF, ahead of France, Italy, Brazil and Russia. To keep growing, India badly needs energy.
So for New Delhi, buying Iranian energy is a matter of national security. Couple it with the obsession in bypassing Pakistan, and it’s clear this is all about a complex interconnection of geopolitics and geoeconomics.
The comprehensive India and Iran partnership revolves around energy, trade and investment connectivity corridors, banking, insurance, shipping and – crucially – the imminent possibility of doing everything using the rupee and the rial, bypassing the US dollar. – Click article title to continue reading.
