From the ABC: Arab nations Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Libya, Yemen cut diplomatic ties with Qatar

Six Arab nations have cut diplomatic ties to Qatar, further deepening the rift between Gulf Arab nations over that country’s support for Islamist groups.

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates all announced they would withdraw their diplomatic staff from Qatar, a gas-rich nation that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Following suit, one of Libya’s three rival governments has announced cutting diplomatic relations with Qatar, and Yemen’s Government has cut relations with the country.

CNN Exclusive: US suspects Russian hackers planted fake news behind Qatar crisis

Washington (CNN) US investigators believe Russian hackers breached Qatar’s state news agency and planted a fake news report that contributed to a crisis among the US’ closest Gulf allies, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

The FBI recently sent a team of investigators to Doha to help the Qatari government investigate the alleged hacking incident, Qatari and US government officials say.

Intelligence gathered by the US security agencies indicates that Russian hackers were behind the intrusion first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, US officials say. Qatar hosts one of the largest US military bases in the region.

Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar is a very large US base in the region and is the regional headquarters of the Central Command, as any competent ‘commander-in-chief’ would remember from his briefings, because a competent ‘commander-in-chief’ would have and pay attention to daily briefings.

The current occupant of the White House doesn’t seem concerned about how the 10K+ US personnel on that base are going to be supplied now that there is no fresh food coming in from Saudi Arabia. He also seems to be unaware of what will happen if the Qatari government tells the US to get the hell out because of his tweets.

Too bad the Nations don’t cut ties & boycott SA. Maybe they’d stop funding the terrorist groups. Of course, SA has long has several POTUS as good friends. They help when the POTUS needs a big distraction when they get caught doing something they shouldn’t. Nothing like a terrorist scare/attack to distract american’s! But, as history shows, most Yanks are so easily conned & fooled. *shrug*

Most Americans are too busy trying to stay alive to think about politics or to vote, which is the way politicians like it. The Shrubbery got away with talking about how ‘he kept America safe’ after 9/11 and Katrina. That should show you how disconnected from reality voters and the US media are.

I guess that really does make Trumper “one of them” then. LOL Here:

Trump Thinks Executive Orders Are Legislation As Not Well President Holds Cabinet Meeting

A completely deranged Donald Trump held his first full cabinet meeting on Monday where he claimed to have passed more legislation than any other president because this president believes that executive orders are legislation.

😆 😆

So far he has only gotten 40 of the 559 people that he needs to appoint to various jobs in the government approved and has signed no legislation. He has no idea how government works, or what he is supposed to be doing. It really is pathetic, and we look like morons because he is sitting in the Oval Office. Imagine ‘Lord Buckethead’ as the Prime Minister of Great Britain.
