Trump has made a new EO that "targets" Human Rights violators worldwide.

The EO lists some new sanctions against known perpetrators.

He has declared a "National Emergency" over this problem.

Apparently over 50 targets so far !!

The exposures are mounting as the Swamp drains.

Some are ....wait for it .......... Russians !

United States Sanctions Human Rights Abusers and Corrupt Actors Across the Globe

December 21, 2017

New Executive Order Implements Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act,
Provides for Treasury Sanctions Against Malign Actors Worldwide

Washington – Today, the Trump Administration launched a new sanctions regime targeting human rights abusers and corrupt actors around the world. Building on the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act passed by Congress last year, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order (Order) today declaring a national emergency with respect to serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world and providing for the imposition of sanctions on actors engaged in these malign activities. In an Annex to the Order, the President imposed sanctions on 13 serious human rights abusers and corrupt actors. In addition, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), acting on behalf of the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, imposed sanctions on an additional 39 affiliated individuals and entities under the newly-issued Order.

I don't even need to check to see if Saudi Arabia will be on the list. Am I going out on a limb by predicting there's no chance of that?

Any such list without Saudi Arabia has no validity.

This video is worth a million words.

Human Rights Accountability Act


Would that act apply to California where thousands are forced to live on the streets, homeless, only to be routinely hassled and persecuted by the cops?

I'd be willing to bet China, Mexico, and Israel aren't on the list either.

Have you been paying attention to what has been happening in Saudi Arabia since they started their anticorruption crackdown?

The young prince has declared war on corruption. He has rounded up radical Saudi clerics. He is allowing women to drive, and giving them a central role in his plans for the economy. He is challenging Iran across the Middle East.

Women are allowed to drive now... they can join the workforce.

That's gonna undermine the effectiveness of sanctions against North Korea. There's a reason why North Korea is still standing strong despite the sanctions. There is enough anti American regimes to keep it afloat and by sanctioning more of them including Russia, it will ensure that they will support North Korea even more just to troll the US.

Interesting.

More showboating. Nothing will come of this though. Just sign EOs one after the other.
