Trump uses emergency powers to clear Saudi Arabia, UAE arms deals
Karoun Demirjian·16:26, May 25th 2019

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified lawmakers Friday that President Donald Trump is invoking his emergency authority to sidestep Congress and complete 22 arms deals that would benefit Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other countries, despite lawmakers' objections to the transactions.

Republicans and Democrats urged the Trump administration this week not to take the rare step of exploiting a legal window to push through deals - worth about US$8 billion, according to congressional aides - that lawmakers have blocked from being finalised.

Pompeo's notification letters effectively give the Trump administration a green light to conclude the sale and transfer of bombs, missile systems, semiautomatic rifles, drones and repair and maintenance services to aid the Saudi air fleet, and precision-guided munitions that lawmakers fear Saudi Arabia may use against civilians in Yemen's civil war.

US President Donald Trump had been urged not to move forward with the arms deals.
(ghost note) US President Donald Trump waves goodbye to the rule of law, so long little lawmakers.

Senator Robert Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had been blocking the sale of the precision-guided munitions. In a statement, he said that Trump had "failed once again to prioritise our long term national security interests or stand up for human rights, and instead is granting favours to authoritarian countries like Saudi Arabia."

Foreign Relations Committee Chairman James Risch said in a statement that he was "reviewing and analysing the legal justification for this action and the associated implications."

AP
Trump's arms deals are worth billions of dollars.

Traditionally, the administration must notify Congress when it contemplates a new arms sale, giving lawmakers the opportunity to review deals and block those they find objectionable. In each of his letters notifying lawmakers of the decision, Pompeo stated that he had "determined that an emergency exists which requires the proposed sale in the national security interest of the United States and thus, waives the congressional review requirements" - without noting the nature of the emergency or offering details about it.

In his letters, he added that the government had "taken into account political, military, economic, human rights, and arms control considerations."

Lawmakers have frequently questioned the Trump administration's approach to national security policy and its track record on human rights. In particular, Trump and Congress have been at odds over the president's unapologetic embrace of Saudi leaders, despite US intelligence showing that the Saudi crown prince was behind the October 2018 killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a contributing columnist for The Washington Post.

This year, the House and Senate voted to end US support for the Saudi-led military coalition operating in Yemen - a move that Trump vetoed with the support of most of the GOP. But even key Republican lawmakers who balked at curtailing US engagement through a war-powers resolution have advocated halting nondefensive weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and its coalition allies until the country does more to improve the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

"There is no new 'emergency' reason to sell bombs to the Saudis to drop in Yemen, and doing so only perpetuates the humanitarian crisis there," Senator Chris Murphy, one of Congress' chief advocates for extracting the United States from the Yemen conflict, said in a statement. "This sets an incredibly dangerous precedent ... If we don't stand up to this abuse of authority, we will permanently box ourselves out of deciding who we should sell weapons to."

But it is not clear how lawmakers will try to reassert control over the arms deals or challenge Trump's use of emergency authority over them. Democrats are hoping that Risch will agree to expedite legislation through the Foreign Relations Committee that could stop the contracts before parts and weapons are sent abroad. Barring that, they may try to use funding measures to block completion of the sales, by prohibiting federal funds from being used to transfer the weapons.

Lawmakers anticipated that the Trump administration might try to push through arms deals benefiting Saudi Arabia, in light of increased tensions with Iran. Earlier this week, Pompeo, acting defense secretary Patrick Shanahan and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford Jr., briefed all House and Senate lawmakers on the intelligence behind the administration's latest moves in the Persian Gulf, arguing they were necessary to respond to evidence showing an increased threat.

Republicans largely endorsed their actions as prudent, while Democrats accused the officials of spinning the evidence to justify a march toward war, expressing consternation that the administration would not consult Congress before taking military action.

Yet the breadth of the Trump administration's decision Friday, which benefits many more countries than just Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Iran's regional rivals, will probably upset members of both parties, according to congressional aides. Thus far, however, few are openly criticising it, save for figures such as Representative Justin Amash, who is also the only congressional Republican to have endorsed the idea of impeaching Trump.

Amash tweeted about the arms sale Friday: "Congress must reclaim its powers. When will the legislative branch stand up to the executive branch?"

Democratic congressional aides pointed to one transaction - a deal to support manufacturing and production of F-18 combat jets - as particularly disturbing. Saudi Arabia does not use F-18s but helps make them for countries such as Israel, India and South Korea.

Democrats are also questioning whether Trump invoked the proper emergency authority under the Arms Export Control Act, pointing out that deals with NATO countries and allies such as Australia are treated as legally distinct from deals with nations such Saudi Arabia and arguing Pompeo's letters conflate them.

"The Administration failed to even identify which legal mechanism it thinks it is using, described years of malign Iranian behaviour but failed to identify what actually constitutes an emergency today, and critically, failed to explain how these systems, many of which will take years to come online, would immediately benefit either the United States or our allies and thus merit such hasty action," Menendez said, accusing Trump of "destroying" relations between Congress and the executive branch and jeopardising the interests of defense contractors.

On a slightly more serious note, I was just thinking about something that I haven't seen referred to in the media or talked about here. This might seem blindingly obvious to some, but I'd be interested to hear opinions nonetheless.
Has anybody else noticed the connection between North Korean missile launches and Trump's tariffs on China? Could it be that there is a corollary between Trump's willingness to impose tariffs on China and their acceptance of North Korea's (according to Trump) absolutely harmless missile tests?

Arkay you were #15 on the "Fucking idiot" list which means you may not make the "Lowest IQ" list, but I was #4 on the "Fucking Idiot" List and cannot comprehend how I could possible miss the "Lowest IQ" List while being a Top 5 Fucking Idiot...frankly I am mystified and offend... :smoke:

The Z forum's IQs continue to shatter records by reaching even more record lows through perpetually refusing to accept Trump's amazing accomplishments, all the while, relishing in liberal media's lies, misquotes, re-edits and mass manipulations of the FACTS. Congratulations. Let's celebrate with a song tailored to FAKE NEWS:


I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little has changed
I'm the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you

Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold
That's right, folks . . .
Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

^^^Why do you choose to hang out with so many low iq individuals on this forum? Wouldn’t you be happier on a Mensa forum or something else more intellectually stimulating? Just curious.

Perhaps he was, but either left under a cloud or was banned. It seems to happen quite often.

E.g. his last post on the U2 interference board was commented on thus...
"I wonder how much more bullshit from this guy we are supposed to take before he´s banned for good."
http://www.u2interference.com/forums/f2 ... 71-51.html

And his last post on the UKMIX messageboard was...
"The only other thing I have to say, is that this is will be THE last post on this forum I'll be making. This is simply because the NAZI moderator, named SholasBoy, deleted one of my last posts in this thread, when all I did was call Mulvanaghty a **** asshole and a liar - which he is and I've done more than PROVEN that."
https://www.ukmix.org/showthread.php?38 ... oggio+Nazi

And the metal sludge site where he was suspended the first time, after posting his "grasping at straws" image 24 times with the moderator warning him...
"If I see #25 you'll be history."
https://forums.metalsludge.tv/forums/vi ... 2#p6029112

And eventually banned completely with the words...
"Geez! You'd think you would have learned the first time.
Later Homoggio!"
https://forums.metalsludge.tv/forums/vi ... 7#p7016137
