This is most likely a legal position rather than a factual statement.

If the U.S. government admitted that enhanced interrogation techniques were ineffective one would expect a barrage of lawsuits both national and international.

The cost of admitting that torture does not work would be staggering.

Torture is absolutely effective in procuring confessions and if the confession can be confirmed by cross-reference to known intelligence or another individuals confession you have what seems like valid information.

A proper, non-torture, interrogation takes a lot of time and needs to be administered by a highly trained professional. Torture can be administered by anyone with mild to extreme sociopathic/psychopathic tenancies or a strong stomach and the resolve to do the job.

Torture is more effective on paper. You get more information in a shorter time with less training for the interrogator.

Concidering the cost of internet access and the variety of of information available on the web why do you need NPR/PBS/CPB?

And don't get me started on The National Endowment for the Arts! (see below in Ref.)


Donald Trump set to ‘eliminate arts funding programs’, cutting off NPR and PBS

...Shutting down the NEA is an idea that dates back to the Reagan administration, though Reagan was ultimately dissuaded from the move by other conservatives...

President Trump to Defund PBS/NPR? | True News

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgQyvI1KMPU

President Donald Trump's administration is planning significant cuts to government spending. It is being reported that the Corporation for Public Broadcasting may be privatized, while the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities would be eliminated completely.


Ref.

There are at least ten good reasons to eliminate funding for the NEA:
http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/1997/04/bg1110-ten-good-reasons-to-eliminate-funding-for-the-nea

  • The Arts Will Have More Than Enough Support without the NEA
  • The NEA Is Welfare for Cultural Elitists
  • The NEA Discourages Charitable Gifts to the Arts
  • The NEA Lowers the Quality of American Art
  • The NEA Will Continue to Fund Pornography
  • The NEA Promotes Politically Correct Art
  • The NEA Wastes Resources
  • The NEA Is Beyond Reform
  • Abolishing the NEA Will Prove to the American Public that Congress Is Willing to Eliminate Wasteful Spending
  • Funding the NEA Disturbs the U.S. Tradition of Limited Government

The basic problem is etiquette of warfare ...
In Vietnam without sanctions of rules and in conflicts without armies or flags of countries there are no rules .

Americans would turn Vietcong over to the South Veitnamese for torture to procure information since they were precluded from doing so ...

Brody File Exclusive: President Trump Says Persecuted Christians Will Be Given Priority As Refugees

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, President Donald Trump says persecuted Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States.

 “We are going to help them,” President Trump tells CBN News.

“They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair.”

Trump to implement 'extreme vetting' measures for people entering the US
 
Trump announced and signed executive action that has widely been reported as a temporary ban on refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries

...  president Donald Trump to “keep radical Islamic terrorists out”.


“We are establishing new vetting measures, to keep radical islamic terrorists out of the United States of America,” the president said on Friday, during a visit to the Department of Defense. “We don’t want ‘em here. We want to ensure we aren’t admitting into our country the very threats that our men and women are fighting overseas.”

Trump gave no further details on the executive action, titled
“Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals”,

which he announced and signed on Friday. However, it has been widely reported that the order would enact a temporary ban on refugees and suspend visas to immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

This would fulfil his vow to limit Muslim immigration to the United States, which he made while campaigning for the White House.

... As for the 'torture' question. I know that some
techniques ... water boarding for instance ... are still
argued in international think tanks, etc ... whether or
not it is actually 'torture'. But that aside, Trump is
probably using this position as a bargaining chip,
and as intimidation of the enemy ... Mattis is excellent
in putting the 'fear-of-God' in the enemy, and
neither is about to announce to the enemy ACTUALLY
what they have in store for them.

I am in favor of announcing a 'no quarter' position
for these head-chopping dogs ... take no
prisoners to American soil. If other countries want
to spare their worthless skins, take 'em home,
feed 'em for the rest of their lives ...
go for it.

Why don't we just do what the Mafia used to do. Shoot them up with heroin for a week and then take it away for a day. Then we can just give them a hot shot at the end and kill them. Say it was an overdose from a junkie. Is that sociopathic enough?

... is Trump monkey-wrenching the
UnHolywood/China alliance?


Wanda Faces Hurdles in Closing
Dick Clark Prods. Deal (EXCLUSIVE)

By Gene Maddaus, Cynthia Littleton - JANUARY 27, 2017

The Dalian Wanda Group announced its eye-popping $1 billion deal to buy Dick Clark Prods. back on Nov. 4. But the transaction is taking longer than expected to close, stirring chatter in the media finance community as political conditions on both sides of the Pacific appear to pose hurdles for Chinese investment in Hollywood.

Quote
One person said that work on the deal also came to a standstill a few weeks ago, amid concerns that the nationalistic focus of the new Trump administration might mean greater scrutiny to big investments in the U.S. by Wanda, Alibaba and the new breed of Sino mega conglomerates. The Dick Clark Prods. transaction was only the most recent mega-acquisition for Wanda, which also bought Legendary Entertainment for $3.5 billion last year and AMC Theaters for $2.6 billion in 2012. Wanda’s buying spree has caught the attention of members of both parties in Congress, who worry that they could mark a strategic extension of Chinese “soft power.”

" ... getting the deal to the finish line is proving more complicated
in the current political climate than both sides expected."

DELINGPOLE:
Donald Trump is Going to Make the European Union History

JAMES DELINGPOLE. 28 Jan 2017

The more I see of the Donald Trump administration, the more I like its style.
Here’s a perfect example – in which Trump’s prospective new Ambassador to the European Union, Ted Malloch, tells it like it is in an interview with Andrew Neil on the BBC’s Daily Politics show.

Neil asked Malloch why on earth he’d want to be Ambassador to the EU.

AN: I mean you’re clearly not a great fan of Brussels or these bureaucrats like Juncker.

TM: Well, I had in a previous year a diplomatic post where I helped to bring down the Soviet Union, so maybe there’s another union that needs a little taming.

Later, Neil asked Malloch what he thought of the President of the EU Commission.

AN: What do you think of Mr Juncker?

TM: Well Mr Juncker was a very adequate mayor of some city in Luxembourg and maybe he should go back and do that again.

Neil laughed like a man who couldn’t believe his luck. Politicians are hardly ever this frank on TV politics shows. Diplomats even less so because supposedly it’s their job to be discreet, smooth things over, not ruffle feathers. As for the EU – no one of influence, with the exception of Nigel Farage, has ever talked about it so disparagingly on television.

Conservative media praised President Donald Trump’s support for the annual pro-life March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Friday. Trump tweeted support for the marchers and sent Vice President Mike Pence and spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway to speak at the march.

The Daily Caller wrote, “While previous Republican presidents have expressed support for the march — Ronald Reagan through a pre-recorded video message and George W. Bush through a phone call — Trump is the first to send high level representatives to address the march real-time and in person.”

Pence said: "We will continue to win the hearts and minds of the rising generation if our hearts first break for young mothers and their unborn children."

US President Donald Trump first time officially called by telephone Russian President Vladimir Putin :)

Putin and Trump say they have never met, but they have expressed admiration for each other’s forceful leadership style.

Mr Trump and Mr Putin will likely discuss a range of issues, including efforts to combat terrorism, White House senior aide Kellyanne Conway told CBS.

"I assume they will discuss, in the interests of their respective countries, how to come together and work together on issues where you can find common ground and where these two nations could maybe defeat radical Islamic terrorism," Ms Conway said.

The U.S. intelligence services recently released a report that found Putin and Russia meddled in the White House race, in which Trump upset Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
The report found no evidence of vote tampering. But months of stolen, then leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta had some damaging impact on Clinton’s presidential bid.
Trump has been openly critical of the report, and the Kremlin has denied involvement in the race. 

Recent polls show that anti-American sentiment in Russia has dropped to 56 percent. Pollsters say it’s due to Trump’s indication he wants to improve relations.
The Kremlin has welcomed Trump's promises to mend ties with Moscow, which also has been badly strained by the war in Syria.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

... Saturday, 28th ... THREE big new
Presidential Actions ...big stuff!


High Energy—
Trump Orders 3 New Presidential Actions:
Lobbying Ban, Defeat ISIS Plan,
National Security Council Reorganization

MICHELLE MOONS

President Donald J. Trump signed three new executive actions on Saturday afternoon, including a five year lobbying ban, reorganization of the National Security Council, and a plan to defeat the Islamic State.

From the Oval Office, President Trump signed the documents while surrounded by reporters, advisers, and his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

President Trump signed the ISIS plan, after which he said, “This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words ISIS. I think it’s going to be very successful. That’s big stuff.”

The President responded to questions about Friday’s executive order on immigration after signing each of the three executive actions, stating, “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.”

President Trump is doing MORE in 10 days; to unravel Obamas follies, than most folks thought he could...this President WILL do what is RIGHT for US---the American People!

...I understand that many do not trust President Trump; and that is their right: The thing is: Give this man a YEAR and we will see what is done...and in my opinion: a lot will be done...for America!

What we are seeing here is extraordinary!

A President that actually gets things done.
A President that is not beholden to the banks.
A President that is terrible at platitudes and rhetoric.
A President that sounds intelligent and sincere when speaking "off camera" and troglodyte when "on camera".
A President that has emotions and expresses them.
A President that takes no sh*t, does take names, and will pay you back.
A President that wants prosperity.
A President that wants peace.

I have been watching the protest about the travel restrictions that have been imposed and it occurred to me; If you live in a country where you can protest every single decision that the head of state makes, disrespect him through every form of communication,  threaten to blow up his house, and openly bully his ten year old child, all without any serious repercussions. DAMN IT, you live in not only a free country but the freest country in the world.

I like the direction this is heading. I pray that it continues!

  * It came just hours after Trump signed an executive order with tough new bans
  * Those already flying when order came into effect were detained on arrival

... NO SURPRISE ... this ban on 'refugees' and 'travelers' from hot-spot/war torn
terrorist countries is causing some confusion, even some hasty suits, Court actions
etc., especially for people with 'green card' protection and for those few people already
in transit when the ban took effect. Surely, all green card holders are subject to review
under the Trump Admin ... just expect it! The old days of easy access ARE OVER!

Anyway, here's a REUTERS piece outlining all the leftie hand-wringing:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Most Of The Muslim Countries Trump
Targeted Have Discriminatory Entry Policies

RYAN PICKRELL - 01/28/2017

At least six out of the seven countries targeted by President
Donald Trump’s latest executive order have entry policies
that discriminate against Israel.


Trump signed an executive order Friday temporarily prohibiting citizens from seven majority Muslim countries — specifically Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen — from entering the U.S.

Of that group, Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Sudan refuse entry to foreign travelers holding passports or travel documents indicating that they have been to or are affiliated in some way with Israel.

Israeli nationals are not permitted to transit through Iraq, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Syria, or Sudan, even in situations where the traveler does not intend to leave the aircraft.

In Syria, individuals suspected of having affiliations
with Israel have been detained for questioning.


These discriminatory entry policies are religiously motivated.
Some have arrived at similar conclusions about Trump’s latest executive order, declaring the move a “Muslim ban,” but the order only restricts entry for travelers from a few predominantly-Muslim countries, not all of them.

For instance, the new policies do not apply to citizens of Indonesia, which has the world’s largest Muslim population.

The primary focus of Trump’s policies is combating Islamic terrorism.

Friendly Reminder: Obama Selected The List Of Muslim Countries in Trump’s Executive Order
Matt Vespa
Posted: Jan 29, 2017 9:00 AM

...  the list of concerned countries that the Trump administration outlined in the order is based on the one signed into law by the former Obama administration. So, it looks like the Obama White House set the groundwork (via Mic News):

According to the draft copy of Trump's executive order, the countries whose citizens are barred entirely from entering the United States is based on a bill that Obama signed into law in December 2015.

Obama signed the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act as part of an omnibus spending bill. The legislation restricted access to the Visa Waiver Program, which allows citizens from 38 countries who are visiting the United States for less than 90 days to enter without a visa.
...
In February 2016, the Obama administration added Libya, Somali and Yemen to the list of countries one could not have visited — but allowed dual citizens of those countries who had not traveled there access to the Visa Waiver Program. Dual citizens of Syria, Sudan, Iraq and Iran are still ineligible, however.

So, in a nutshell, Obama restricted visa waivers for those seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen — and now, Trump is looking to bar immigration and visitors from the same list of countries.
...
Yet, I don’t remember the Left freaking out over this. I certainly don’t remember them going indiscriminately insane when the Obama White House stopped processing Iraqi visas for six months when—surprise! —Al-Qaeda operatives feigned refugee status to get relocated to Bowling Green, Kentucky. And yes, some of the applicants worked as intelligence assets and interpreters for the U.S. military, according to ABC News. But remember, that was when a Democrat was in the Oval Office, so it was okay back then.  ...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

PALM BEACH – Star Trek’s William Shatner was taking a beating on social media during the swanky Red Cross Ball at Mar-a-Lago Saturday night, but chances are the critics couldn’t hurt him much. Shatner, who’s starting to look like a Leprechaun, was described by a spywitness at the shindig as “pretty blasted” while another said Shatner couldn’t have been more of a gentleman.
...
I’m told Shatner, who came with wife Elizabeth, acted like a bit of a sourpuss to some guests, especially late into the night.

At times, Shatner tried to stay away from well-heeled, selfie-seeking Red Cross supporters.
Eventually, Shatner was overheard telling his missus: “Let get the f*** out of here!”

In contrast, Wayne Newton worked the crowd with a smile and helped raise more than $1 million

'refugees':


Gulf Leaders Agree To Trump’s Request To Set Up ‘Safe Zones’
ALEX PFEIFFER - 01/29/2017

The King of Saudi Arabia and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi agreed with President Donald Trump’s request to support safe zones for refugees in the Middle East, the White House announced Sunday.

A White House readout of the call between President Trump and Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abd Al-Aziz Al Saud said that the King agreed to “support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts.”

The readout of the call between Trump and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayid Al Nuhayyan of the United Arab Emirates was less specific but shared the same sentiment. “The President also raised the idea of supporting safe zones for the refugees displaced by the conflict in the region, and the Crown Prince agreed to support this initiative,” the White House said.

"President Trump also discussed joint-efforts with the
Gulf states aimed towards defeating ISIS ..."
