CIB Breaking Surreal News, Mexico City| Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) announced today that in the interests of restoring border security his country would be willing to finance US Unprecedent Trump's campaign promise to build a wall on their countries' mutual border.

In a televised address to the Mexican nation, AMLO stated that since the US government shutdown on this issue, "automatic weapons, drugs, and white supremacy terrorists have been flowing unrestrained over the border from the US into Mexico."

"Anything would be better than the present anarchy," he went on to say, "concrete, steel slats, beaded curtains, voodoo dolls!"

The only proviso is that Unprecedented Trump first release his tax returns, Trump's other unfulfilled campaign promise.

"Only Trump's tax returns and the Mueller investigation can reveal whether the US can be trusted to use Mexican funds properly to actually build the Wall rather than enrich the ruling clique's cronies and their foreign backers," AMLO stated.

Mexican law prohibits foreign aid to underdeveloped countries with inadequate financial transparency, high-level corruption, and foreign interference in elections.

The US Border Patrol has determined that a chain of Voodoo Dolls, rather than concrete, steel slats, or beaded curtains, would be the most cost effective Wall to deter illegal border crossings into the US.

Yuletide Gift Giving in the Trump White House

“Trump is God’s gift that keeps on giving,” said Vladimir Frolov, a Russian columnist and foreign affairs analyst. “Trump implements Russia’s negative agenda by default, undermining the U.S.–led world order, U.S. alliances, U.S. credibility as a partner and an ally. All of this on his own. Russia can just relax and watch and root for Trump, which Putin does at every TV appearance.”

Washington, DC (CIB Breaking Satanic News)--After being accused of spreading an Infowars doctored video of the tussle between CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta and Deputy Press Entrapment (aka "intern") Jailbait Lindsay Walters, White House Press Secretary Sanders unequivocally started that

If there's any doctoring of journalists to be done around here, we reach for our bone saws, not Photoshop.
What's good for Khashoggi is good for the country. Make America Lame Again!

Trump Administration Announces Draconian Sanctions against Saudi Arabia for Khashoggi Dismemberment

Washington, DC (CIB Breaking Surreal News)—White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be announcing draconian sanctions against Saudi Arabia for the alleged murder and dismemberment of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul.
The Trump administration will impose an across-the-operating-table prohibition of exports of US bone saws and other surgical instruments, starting with the Civil-War-Era collection depicted below.

Presidential First-Son-In-Law Jared Kushner, in his recent press conference, advised his bosom friend Crone Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) to stick to “transparently more deniable” assassination methods like Novichok, Polonium or VX poisonings in the future when dealing with undesirable elements. “All of our other admired authoritarians have gotten away with it, so the Saudis should “bone up” on their tradecraft,” he said.
At a midterm election rally in Milwaukee, Unprecidented Trump said that he will prohibit imports of Chinese surgical instruments and “Make America Lame Again” using domestic Civil-War-Era medical technology. So-called “scientific medicine” is responsible for the rise of autism, he claimed, and urged a return to the miasma theory of disease that decimated “many fine soldiers” on both sides of the Civil War.

In a closing note, White House Press Secretary Sanders said that a humanitarian exception to the export sanctions might be made to enable MSB to treat his bone spurs, a crippling ailment afflicting many world leaders.

Trump announces seven-day FBI investigation of Jamal Khashoggi disappearance

CIB breaking (fake?) news--Unpresidented US Precedent Donald Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a seven-day cover-up investigation of the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, along the successful lines of the recent whitewashing of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Confronted with the evidence of foul play and international indignation, Trump, after six days, blurted "I don't like it." He will give the FBI an additional day for their investigation to, as he put it, "put the pieces together again."

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has been accused of ordering a 15 man hit squad to torture, kill, dismember, and dispose of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Trump said in defence of MBS that "It is a very scary time for young men in Saudi Arabia, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of."

Khashoggi's fiancée Hatice Cengiz waited several hours in vain outside the Saudi consulate for his return.

At a rally in Mississippi Trump later mocked her account:

"How did you get home? I don't remember. How'd you get there? I don't remember. Where is the place? I don't remember. How many years ago was it? I don't know."

Trump's comments were met with laughter and applause from the crowd.

"I don't know. I don't know," the President continued. "What neighborhood was it in? I don't know. Where's the house? I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs -- where was it? I don't know but I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember."

It's a dangerous time to be a young man around the world, but it pays to have powerful friends.

Now We Finally Know What America First Means: Peace For Our Time!

Donald Trump, 2018 [Fox News interview on NATO Article 5]:

Mr. Carlson moved to his next prompt: “So, let’s say Montenegro, which joined [NATO] last year, is attacked. Why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack? Why is that?”

“I understand what you’re saying,” Mr. Trump responded. “I’ve asked the same question.” “Tiny” Montenegro, he continued, has “very aggressive people. They may get aggressive and congratulations, you’re in World War III.”

Fox News interview, reported in NYT July 18, 2018

Neville Chamberlain,1938 [broadcast on the Czechoslovakia crisis with Nazi Germany]:

"How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing."

Broadcast (27 September 1938), quoted in "Prime Minister on the Issues", The Times (28 September 1938), p. 10
