Toxic men use lies, treachery & each other to get money or power.
The US Senate just slammed two of Trump’s liars.
Toxic men in toxic nations continue to lie to the world while they destroy the lives of millions of innocent onlookers in order to line their pockets or increase their power. They kill for little reason or no reason. Photo Credit: “Toxic-Men” includes various public domain images. Art: FPMag Rosa Yamamoto

makes the case for stopping evil men from slaughtering innocent civilians in Yemen. This week two despicable men lied to a US Senate committee about why they remain indifferent to the murder of American Columnist Jamal Khashoggi and the slaughter of children and women in Yemen. This is what American leadership has been allowed to descend into.
Humanitarian Action groups are overwhelmed by the millions of near-death cases of cholera, dysentery and malnourishment. Starvation is winning as the USA, UAE and Saudi blockades the ports of Yemen from the supply of food and medicine using mostly made in America weapon systems. Here is the list of countries sending weapons to kill Yemeni women and children.
Washington and Riyadh did not want a ceasefire before seizing control of Hodeidah and perhaps Saana, according to a source close to Mr. Houthi. This is learned despite the extensive efforts for peace by the UN’s special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, and the UK Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt.

The Murder of Jamal Khashoggi
The slaughter of babies and mothers in yemen. What do you think this poor man is thinking after coming home to find his neighbour family’s home like this? Why would America/Saudi/UAE missiles be hitting residential areas?

Statement from President Donald J. Trump on Standing with Saudi Arabia – America First!
The world is a very dangerous place!
The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave. They would immediately provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has agreed to spend billions of dollars in leading the fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.
After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States. This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!
The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body.
Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that – this is an unacceptable and horrible crime. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!
That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!
I understand there are members of Congress who, for political or other reasons, would like to go in a different direction – and they are free to do so. I will consider whatever ideas are presented to me, but only if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America. After the United States, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producing nation in the world. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels – so important for the world. As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!
