Editorials | The Guardian: The Observer view on Donald Trumps tour of Asia | Observer editorial

The American presidents poor grasp of international relations, his bluster and his America first rhetoric are unlikely to reap success in the face of Xi Jinping pragmatism

The phrase bull in a china shop might have been coined to describe this weeks tour of Asia by Donald Trump. During last years presidential election campaign, he raged against China, terming it an enemy and accusing Beijing of raping America with predatory trade practices. With characteristic insensitivity, he suggested Japan should acquire nuclear weapons and South Korea should pay more for its defence. He promised to tear up the multilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership, a promise he then fulfilled. And he vowed to eliminate the threat posed by North Korea by any means, including military action.

Editorials | The Guardian: The Observer view on sexual harassment in Westminster | Observer editorial

Wholesale reform is needed by our leaders in parliament and society as a wholeIt has taken less than a month for the assault and harassment scandal that has engulfed Hollywood to spread to Westminster. In the past few days, our political system has become paralysed by allegations of assault and harassment by male MPs. Instead of a sober, swift and professional response, we have witnessed the spectacle of political parties desperately scrabbling to produce an adequate reaction and ministers clumsily fighting for their political lives.

There is a real risk the gravity of the crisis that has consumed Westminster is judged superficially by the number of political scalps it claims. In the wake of a sexual harassment scandal that has highlighted the abuses of power that can take place in the shadowy corridors of Westminster, this cannot be allowed to happen.

Is the American republic built to withstand a malevolent president? | Michael Goldfarb

The principle of common good underpins the constitution. Donald Trump is gleefully shredding that idealThe Trump administration, having passed the six-month milestone in office, kicked off the next phase of his presidency with an explosion of crazy, spread over the past seven days. Like sweeps week on The Apprentice, every day saw some headline-grabbing event to garner ratings. It started with leaks against his former bosom buddy, attorney general, Jeff Sessions. President Trump, sources said, was planning to fire him. It moved on to a speech to the Boy Scouts of America jamboree, where Trump told the story of a property developer who lost a fortune and was lurking at a New York party with the hottest people. Later, there was a tweet announcement banning transgender people from the military.

This explosion of crazy concluded with his new White House chief of communications, Anthony Scaramucci, calling the New Yorkers political correspondent Ryan Lizza to trash virtually everyone in the White House. He compared himself positively to the presidents dark lord and special adviser, Stephen Bannon: Im not Steve Bannon, Im not trying to suck my own cock. Im not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the president.

Palmer Report: Shortly after Jared Kushner departs Saudi Arabia, major arrests are now underway

When it was revealed last Friday night that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was about to begin making arrests in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal: one key detail stood out: Jared Kushner was secretly out of the country. No one knows what he was in Saudi Arabia for, and Trump’s White House still refuses to explain it, but in any case Kushner returned home and he was not among those arrested. However, Saudi Arabia has suddenly plunged into a state of chaos with major arrests and a potential regime change underway, raising questions about just what Kushner was doing over there and what Donald Trump was tweeting about this morning.

This evening the royal family of Saudi Arabia arrested one of its own most powerful members, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, a multibillionaire international investor, according to a CNBC report (link). Others have also been arrested and/or ousted from the government. This is being officially referred to as a corruption crackdown, but in authoritarian regimes, that’s often code for an attempted regime change. Then there’s Jared Kushner.

We do know that Kushner has long been tasked with the vague goal of establishing Middle East peace for the Donald Trump administration, though he has no skills to make that happen, and there has never been any evidence that he has any real strategy or plan. His recent trip to Saudi Arabia, and the White House’s insistence on keeping the details of the trip a secret, strongly suggest that it was not an above-board trip. Then this morning Donald Trump tweeted this: “Would very much appreciate Saudi Arabia doing their IPO of Aramco with the New York Stock Exchange. Important to the United States!” Then the New York Times (link) revealed a new deal between Saudi Arabia and Russia.

So now we have Jared Kushner taking a secret trip to Saudi Arabia with a secret mission, then Donald Trump suddenly and publicly courts Saudi Arabian business, then a few hours later Saudi Arabia and Russia strike a deal, and a few hours after that, members of the Saudi Arabian royal family no appear to be trying to oust each other in a power struggle that could lead to regime change. What the heck is going on?

Palmer Report: Donald Trumps tweet plunges Saudi Arabian government into regime-changing chaos

Donald Trump just departed on a twelve day overseas trip to Asia. His staff is able to regularly supervise him during these trips, limiting his ability to sneak off and post a mentally incompetent Twitter meltdown. But he did manage to fire off a cryptic tweet on Saturday morning which seemed oddly specific: “Would very much appreciate Saudi Arabia doing their IPO of Aramco with the New York Stock Exchange. Important to the United States!” In the hours since, the government of Saudi Arabia has plunged itself into total chaos and this can’t be a coincidence.

Just hours later, CNBC reported that the royal family of Saudi Arabia arrested one of its own wealthiest and most influential members, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, who has invested his money heavily in American companies (link). Others were also ousted from governmental power, as the Crown Prince looks to seize full control over the nation, in what amounts to a partial regime change. Trump’s tweet was some kind of signal to the Crown Prince and Jared Kushner’s secret visit to Saudi Arabia now sticks out like a sore thumb.

Kushner took the trip without the public knowing, and when the media subsequently asked about it, Trump’s White House declined to provide a satisfactory answer. Harvard Law Professor Laurene Tribe characterized Prince Alwaleed’s arrest in this manner: “This is the prince who stiffed Jared on his recent secret mission to Saudi, where of course Putin & Trump are in cahoots.” The company Trump referenced in his tweet, Aramco, is the official government-owned oil company of Saudi Arabia.

So the timeline now looks like this: Jared Kushner secretly traveled to Saudi Arabia and asked Prince Alwaleed to bail out his sinking personal fortunes. Alwaleed refused. One week later Donald Trump publicly invited the Saudi Arabian government to launch its IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. Hours later, the Saudi Arabian government arrested the Prince who had just refused to bail out Kushner. And because everything about Trump relates to Russia, Saudi Arabia just announced a major new oil deal with Russia.
