In break with decades of U.S. policy, Trump
to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will announce on Wednesday that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move its embassy there, breaking with longtime U.S. policy and potentially stirring unrest. Despite warnings from Western and Arab allies, Trump in a 1 p.m. (1800 GMT) White House speech will direct the State Department to begin looking for a site for an embassy in Jerusalem as part of what is expected to be a years-long process of relocating diplomatic operations from Tel Aviv. Trump is to sign a national security waiver delaying a move of the embassy, since

Based on their long and fractious political history, the Arabs are not a bunch of folks who should be making decisions for us. Where we locate our embassies is none of their business. I´m pleased to see an American president who´s prepared to tell infantile aggressors and childish primitives to get lost.

Next year in Jerusalem?

Believe me when I say this is going to rock the boat of the whole Arab/Iran face down. Iran will use this to rally radical Muslims against the new Saudi Regime change stance against radical Muslim activism. This is going to end up in some really hot stuff.

It may break with decades of U.S. policy but it is in line with nearly 3000 years of history.

An old joke with a point:

The Israeli Ambassador at the U.N. began, "Ladies and gentlemen before I commence with my speech, I want to relay an old Passover story.

"When Moses was leading the Jews out of Egypt toward the Promised Land, he had to go through the nearly endless Sinai desert.

"When they reached the Promised Land, the people had become very thirsty and needed water. So Moses struck the side of a mountain with his staff and a pond appeared with crystal clean, cool water. The people rejoiced and drank to their hearts´ content.

"Moses put down his staff and went to a solitary corner of the pond to drink, and meditate in prayer. But once Moses returned, he found that his staff had been stolen.

"I have reason to believe ladies and gentlemen that the Palestinians stole the staff of our great Prophet Moses.´"

The Palestinian delegate to the UN, hearing this accusation, jumps from his seat and screams out, "This is a travesty. It is widely known that there were no such thing as ´Palestinians´ at that time!"

"And with that in mind," said the Israeli Ambassador, "let me now begin my speech."

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, over and over agian, expecting a different outcome.

Past US policy towards the Palestinians has been pure insanity, so Trump, not being insane, is doing something different.

How Trumpian. How brilliant. Leaving the Swamp behind.

Why are the nations in an uproar?
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Jack Engelhard    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 12/10/2017 10:09:33     Post Reply
King David’s Psalm number two opens with the rhetorical question – “Why are the nations in an uproar?” Well now we know. The European nations (nearly all of them) that conspired with Germany to wipe out the Jews barely 75 years ago, cannot accept the fact that Israel Lives. That’s one. Two, that Israel lives with Jerusalem as its capital, as endorsed by the United States through President Trump – it’s driving them crazy. Delirium has set in from France, Germany (that’s nerve), Britain, Sweden and throughout the European Union. They can’t forgive Trump for being so heroic and they will never forget

SADIQ Khan has been slammed after hiring a group headed by a staunch Remainer to write reports about the potential impacts of leaving the EU. The London Mayor is believed to have splurged £42,270 on the reports about how Brexit could impact the capital´s economy. They will be produced by Cambridge Econometrics, which has already predicted economic doom when Britain leaves the EU. The group´s director, Richard Murphy, campaigned for a Remain vote last year and claimed Brexit would spark an recession.

During a rally to promote Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, Donald Trump continued to attack the ´rigged´ and ´sick´ government institutions that he claims try to thwart his administration. At the Friday night event to promote the alleged sexual assaulter, he said: ´This is a rigged system. This is a sick system from the inside. ´And, you know, there is no country like our country but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions.´ He did not name FBI special counsel Robert Mueller by name in the speech, but has done battle with the bureau as it continues

A SYNAGOGUE was attacked by around 20 masked men while hosting a youth party in Gothenburg, Sweden, local media have reported. Police arrived at the scene, where Jewish students had taken refuge in the basement. A police spokesman said: "There are several molotov cocktails that have been thrown against the synagogue. "It´s about bottles and gasoline." A fire broke out between vehicles in the car park, fire fighter Kristoffer Wahter told local news. No injuries were caused and the building did not catch fire, Police inspector Peter Nordengard said. Initial local media reports suggest the group was around 20 men wearing masks carried out the

Theresa May today crowned her church´s Christmas tree with a shoe in fitting tribute to her love of expensive footwear. The Prime Minister beamed as she placed the silver heel while husband Philip watched on in their Maidenhead church. Mrs May described shoes as ´the love of her life´ after famously chiding her colleagues for their reputation as ´the nasty party´ in a pair of leopard-print kitten heels in 2002. The tree she crowned was one of many in St Luke´s church which held its annual tree festival today. There was not a hint of tiredness about Mrs May who

Hundreds of drinkers descended on London dressed as Father Christmas for SantaCon as the annual American pub crawl hit the UK once more. Describing itself as ´non-profit, non-political, non-religious and non-sensical´, the parade that originated in San Francisco invites people to ´join the naughty list´ and down drinks in the capital´s bars and open spaces. But today´s festive frivolities weren´t restricted to indoor venues, as Santas were spotted pouring themselves drinks outside - with one unloading a large bottle of gin into a plastic bottle.

President Donald Trump is committed to ongoing efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, the U.S. ambassador to the UN said Friday amid a backlash over his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital. "Let me again assure you, the president and this administration remain committed to the peace process," Ambassador Nikki Haley said at an emergency meeting of the Security Council that was convened over Trump´s decision Wednesday. She added that Trump, in his reversal of two decades of American foreign policy, was simply recognizing reality, since the Israeli government and parliament are

Israeli warplanes rained down missiles on Gaza overnight in retaliation for rockets shot into Israel from terrorists in the coastal enclave. Targets included two weapons manufacturing sites, a military compound and an arsenal. Reports in Gaza said that 15 people were injured in the strikes, including a six-month-old boy. Two members of Hamas were killed at the Hamas facility at Nusseirat in central Gaza, officials said. The attack was a response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip on Friday which forced Israeli civilians in the south of the country to run for cover as air raid sirens blared for the first time

Yes of course President Trump came through and delivered as promised on Jerusalem. He said he would. He said he would name Jerusalem the capital of Israel (later the Embassy, but that’s just detail)…and skeptics beware. This man, this president, means what he says. He’s a New Yorker. New Yorkers do not welch on a bet. Speaking of which – I am owed. I intend to become rich from all the skeptics who bet against him…and me. I kept saying he’d do the right thing.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Thousands of Palestinians protested in a “day of rage” on Friday in the occupied West Bank, Gaza and in East Jerusalem against U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of the ancient city as Israel’s capital. Across the Arab and Muslim worlds, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets on Friday, the Muslim holy day, expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and outrage at the U.S. move. As Friday prayers ended at the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, worshippers made their way toward the walled Old City gates, chanting “Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital,” and “We don’t need empty

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
