Balochistan freedom champion Rohrabacher meets Trump
WASHINGTON – A staunch proponent of Balochistan’s liberation from the colonial yoke of Pakistan and a friend of Israel, Rep Dana Rohrabacher, Tuesday met US president Donald J. Trump at the White House.
Rep Rohrabacher’s meeting with President Trump and senior White House aides, which lasted approximately 45 minutes, covered a wide-ranging of foreign and domestic issues. The discussion, which was arranged at the President’s invitation, included White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Senior Strategist Steve Bannon.
“The President asked searching questions and clearly demonstrated he was in command and ready to push his positive agenda for America,” said the California Republican, who once worked as a Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan.
“He was especially keen on my proposal to create a new visa program that would help finance the border wall and protect our country’s sovereign territory by charging wealthy foreigners to become citizens of the United States.”
Rohrabacher also emphasized his bill to expand employee ownership of companies as part of an expected tax reform package as well as his plan to create tax incentives for commercial space enterprises.
The meeting also dealt with combating Islamist terrorism by forging alliances with countries that, like the United States, are menaced by this greatest of global threats.
“Having worked with Ronald Reagan and sat with him in that very same Oval Office,” said Rohrabacher, “I was deeply impressed with President Trump’s grasp of the challenges we face.”
Rohrabchaer made history when he raised the issue of France-sized Balochistan for the first time in the US Congress five years ago and has ever since has been a household name in Balochistan along with fellow congressmen Louis Gohmert, Steve King, Ted Poe and Brad Sherman for fighting for the independence of Balochistan, or land of the Baloch.
Baloch freedom fighters or Sarmachars are facing the joint might of Pakistan-China military but have stubbornly resisted them on their occupied homeland. These Sarmachars remain confident that with better supply of weaponry they can defeat the Chinese designs in the Straits of Hormuz.
Balochistan is the world capital of enforced disappearances where upwards of 20,000 Baloch patriots have been forcibly and involuntarily disappeared by the jihadist Pakistan army, Inter Services Intelligence, Military Intelligence and Frontier Corps. Thousands of Baloch have been killed and dumped.
Balochistan reached the point of no return since the August 2006 assassination of former governor and chief minister of Balochistan Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti on the orders of coup leader and military dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf. Bugti’s grandson Brahumdagh Bugti is one of the leaders spearheading the independence struggle from exile in Geneva, Switzerland.
