Burying Obama’s legacy
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Caroline B. Glick

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/17/2017 10:47:12 PM

The fact is that Trump has given Netanyahu support as he has walked away from the failed policy paradigm of the Obama years. It may very well be that this week was the week that Israel and the US put to rest former president Barack Obama’s policies and positions on Israel and the Palestinians. If so, the move was made despite the best efforts of Obama’s team to convince the Trump administration to maintain them. The details of Obama’s policies and positions have been revealed in recent weeks in a series of articles published in Haaretz regarding Obama’s secretary of state John

FTA: "...despite the best efforts of Obama’s team to convince the Trump administration to maintain them." Uh we won. Remember that quote Mr. Unilateral? I´ll bet Obama doesn´t feel so smug now knowing he will be undone.

None of BathHouseBarry´s wheeling dealing benefited this country or Israel.

His only legacy: If you´re black, I got your back. He set this country back 50 years and caused a racial divided we may never fix.

The repudiation of Obama´s policies by President Trump is why the left hates him. It is also why they are desperately trying to remove him from office on false premises. Progressives cannot allow the President to destroy the Obama agenda because it means everything the globalists have worked so hard to achieve these past eight years is gone. They were banking on Clinton putting the final nail in the coffin of this country. When DonaldTrump won, they lost and that is why they are completely unhinged. Lest we forget, the grieving and gnashing of teeth is happening in the Republican Party as well. There are committed globalists in the party who hate this President as much as any democrat . In fact, some are even in leadership positions. Donald Trump has certainly upset the applecart in Washington DC. For the good of the country and its people, may he be resoundingly successful.

Barry´s looking in the wrong direction for his legacy. It´s not in his laughably erasable Executive Actions that he argues be kept. It´s certainly not in legislation because as an instinctive autocrat, he refused to work with Congress, even refused the Dems, save his outsourcing his veto to the execrable Harry Reid, or his lying/strong-arming on behalf of ReidPelosiCare, erroneously named obamacare.
No, his legacy is not to be found these places. His legacy of division and national breakdown and international chaos is indelibly writ large and evilly in the life of this nation and in the wreckage he wrought upon the Democrat Party, most notably among lost governors and State Houses.

Okay. It is s kind-of step in the right direction, for sure. But, it´s not really a pro-active step in the right direction is it? Why is President Trump playing coy on this matter? Israel is certainly not being criticised by Trump´s Administration. But, that is not exactly the same as being openly supported, either. And why was SOS Tillerson trying to protect the obviously duplicitous Abbas at the risk to his impeccable reputation for being a straight shooter?

The middle east once again is raising it´s buzzard head to entangle another US President into it´s perpetually filthy goo.

"There are two reasons that Kerry had no prospects for reaching a deal."

There are many reasons. Kerry is a lying, tin star, purple heart stealing, self-proclaimed hero, horse-faced, cheating, medal-throwing, treasonous, money grubbing, pompous, rich widow-chasing, liberal fool who took the job as Secretary of State so his previously-mentioned horse face would be in front of the cameras and reminding Americans that he should be President simply because "Do you know who I am?" Thus, nobody could believe or take the man seriously.

Apologies to Uno for borrowing his format.

Very interesting. Perhaps Kerry et al spiked the deal by refusing to budge on a position that they knew [March 2014] PM Bibi would not tolerate. What is odd is that the Kerry´s team took a position more extreme than the PLO´s demand. They [Kerry] wanted Jewish inhabitants removed from those newly designated ´Palestinian´ towns [formerly in Judea and Samaria]. Of course Abbas refused the next US proposal - even tho´ it was based on talks with the Palestinians. SOP for theses charlatans. They say Peace, Peace with their mouths & have greed & hate in their hearts.

OK - I am posting again as I read the entire article - not just the sort of misleading headline. The really good news is that Trump & the State Department are not pressuring Netanyahu on several items which the US has supported in the past some as far back as the Bush Admin.
1 - the foreign NGO´s funded by governments hostile to Israel. The PM has officially come out against them.
2 - Shutting down Al Jazeera in Israel which incites all sorts of bad things.
3 - And most importantly the PM called for the ending of the UNRWA! UNRWA prevents the permanent resettlement of the Arabs who left Israel in 1948 and 1949 as well as their descendants. Trump may make this US policy too!

Here´s one of my favorite parts:

Then there is UNRWA. The UN’s refugee agency dedicated to the Palestinians is arguably one of the central reasons for the perpetuation of the Palestinian conflict with Israel. Indeed, UNRWA was formed by the Arab governments to specifically block all prospect of peace between Israel and its neighbors.

UNRWA prevents the permanent resettlement of the Arabs who left Israel in 1948 and 1949 as well as their descendants. It has doomed five generations of “refugees” to live in the squalor of its camps, blocked from receiving citizenship in the countries of their birth and prevented from being resettled in other countries. (Snip)

Under Obama, the US increased its payments to UNRWA even as UNRWA schools, clinics and other facilities have been used as missile launching pads and storage depots in Hamas’s war against Israel.

This week, Netanyahu finally put to rest the dangerous folly that UNRWA is a foil to Hamas and a positive force in the region. He called for UNRWA to be dismantled and for the Palestinians and their descendants to be treated like every other refugee group in the world and be resettled by the UN’s high commissioner for refugees.

Excuse me if I start rooting for her, if only because I turned her into literature, that’s one; and two, she’s taking too many blows and I always root for the underdog. For some reason she’s become a Cultural Villain. Now you wouldn’t think there’d be a connection between the Biblical figure of Korach and TV news celeb Megyn Kelly, but then there’s this – He got swallowed up into the earth when he got too big for his britches, and for the same type of vanity, she has built a hole for herself that threatens to sink what was once the most

Among the many illustrious guests of the governor of Hong Kong, you might think that good manners was of the utmost importance. But it has now been revealed there was only one who bothered to make their bed in the mornings – Margaret Thatcher. Lord (Chris) Patten said it showed the Iron Lady’s ‘extraordinary normality’ that she would always complete the chore in the morning despite having 50 staff on hand. The Conservative ex-MP, who was the last British governor of the former colony from 1992 to 1997, added: ‘My wife once crept in to see how well she’d done it and it

In at least four of President Trump´s golf clubs hangs a framed Time Magazine cover from March 1, 2009, featuring the reality star and the headline: ´The "Apprentice" is a television smash!´ But Time never published an issue on March 1, 2009, and a closer look at the magazine´s famous red border reveals the cover, which hangs in golf clubs as far flung as Scotland, is a fake. It remains unclear who made the cover, but Time is now asking Trump´s businesses to take down the phony mock-up, according to Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold.

REDSTONE Arsenal, a US Army base in Alabama, was locked down this afternoon amid fears of an active shooter. A spokesman for the base told staff members to "run, hide, fight" as authorities attempt to determine the legitimacy of the alert. It came a day before an active shooter drill was scheduled to take place, although officials at the base assured staff members today´s alert is a "real world event". Redstone Arsenal spokesman Christopher Colster said: “It’s a scary situation but I believe one we’re prepared for. “In one of our buildings this morning there were reports of an active shooter.

THE United Nations´ top rights official accused US President Donald Trump of breaking taboos by his apparent support for torture techniques, and warned world powers against undermining civil liberties in their fight against militants. Zeid Ra´ad al-Hussein also lambasted British Prime Minister Theresa May for threatening to change human rights laws if they got in the way of security operations, saying her words would give heart to authoritarian governments. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights told an audience in London late on Monday that strident statements in the wake of attacks risked undermining international rights treaties.

Australians are getting older, turning their their backs on religion and welcoming more migrants from Asia than from Europe. Results of the 2016 Census, disrupted by cyber attacks, paint a picture of a changing Australia. The number of Australians older than 65 has grown by nearly 665,000 since the 2011 Census, data released on Tuesday shows. In the past five years 1.3 million migrants have arrived and for the first time in our history the majority of people born overseas are now from Asia, not Europe. Two-thirds of the country´s population are born in Australia. England and New Zealand are still the most common

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
