Another checkmark for American Denuclearization
“DNI Dan Coats to leave Trump”
“The last fulcrum of truth is about to vanish from the American administrative landscape,” muttered my editor when I was assigned this piece. It’s the most polite quote I got from anyone on this piece without there being the “F” word and “Trump” in the same sentence.
“DNI to leave Trump” by Melissa Hemingway
Two DNI truths stand out that Trump wants altered.
1 — Russia seriously altered the course of the 2016 presidential elections in the United States to help change the course of the electoral process and give Trump the win.
2 — There is no way on God’s green Earth that DPRK Chairman Kim Jong-un is going to denuclearize his country until there is total global nuclear disarmament. (And he shouldn’t.)
DNI Dan Coats refused to back down from the truth after meeting with every security intelligence agancy of the United States and reading their reports, he was straightforward and honest.
“I am pleased to announce that highly respected Congressman John Ratcliffe of Texas will be nominated by me to be the Director of National Intelligence. A former U.S. Attorney, John will lead and inspire greatness for the Country he loves. Dan Coats, the current Director, will… be leaving office on August 15th. I would like to thank Dan for his great service to our Country. The Acting Director will be named shortly.”

John Ratcliffe recently caught the US President’s eye while Ratcliffe was attacking Robert Mueller like a vulture in a congressional hearing last Wednesday. It was a vicious attack on a dedicated public servant. Congressman John Ratcliffe is seen as a Trump “yesman” whereas Mr. Coats simply told the truth.
Mr. John Ratcliffe’s appointment and Dan Coats departure is in aggregate one more reason why the United States and the rest of the world should not have nuclear weapons.

According to Sharon Santiago of The RINJ Foundation, “our goal is to assemble members around the world, led by the best and the brightest to promote and achieve global nuclear disarmament and demilitarization of space in concert with the UN Secretary General”.
“Our method initially,” she said, “is to support the UN Secretary General’s 5-Point Plan for nuclear disarmament plus further initiatives we (you and other members) may decide by vote. We shall challenge commitments of political candidates and government representatives on our aims for a more peaceful Earth through a viable and sustainable nuclear disarmament process and the same for the demilitarization of space.”
