JERUSALEM – CAPITAL OF ISRAEL

 

Jerusalem has been the home of the Jews for 3,000 years – to deny it is Israel’s capital is Fake History

Fake news is a problem, but fake history is worse. And fake history has a lot to do with the troubles in the Middle East and the controversy surrounding Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

President Trump announced Wednesday that the United States is formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will therefore move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

 We were invited to participate in a conference call on this important decision hosted by White House Deputy Director and Special Assistant to the President Jennifer Korn on Wednesday afternoon. Ambassador David Satterfield, who is principal deputy assistant secretary of state in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, discussed the implications of this decision and replied to a number of questions.

The controversy is stark. Not surprisingly CNN has posted columns promising that the president’s decision will cause “upheaval” and “dangerous reverberations.” The New York Times says Trump’s announcement “has drawn a storm of criticism from Arab and European leaders.”

And, predictably, various Palestinian groups, such as Hamas, are calling for protests and “three days of rage.”

Even Palestinian Christians burned pictures of President Trump in Bethlehem over implications from his announcement on Jerusalem.

President Trump has commented that his decision is“recognition of reality.” Well, of course it is. And it is recognition of history too.

The background briefing we were sent prior to the White House conference call makes it clear that the president and his team understand the importance of history – not the bogus narrative many on the left embrace.

We all know how the president feels about “fake news.” As it turns out, he doesn’t like “fake history” either. Peace in the Middle East will never happen if we keep lying about history.

Three important points – truthful history – need to be made.

First, the rejection of the Jewish State of Israel and the opposition to Israel’s claim of Jerusalem as the nation’s capital are based on fake history.

Key Islamic leaders have rewritten history, denying the historical existence of Israel. This is absurd. Finding peace in the Middle East is not helped refusing to tell the truth about the past.

The most egregious fake history revolves around the claim that there never was an ancient kingdom of Israel and that the Jewish people never had a temple in Jerusalem.

No trained historian and certainly no competent archaeologist agrees with such nonsense. Of course ancient Israel existed – and existed in the very place where modern Israel exists today.

But many Muslims and Muslim leaders simply refuse to accept the facts of history. Responsible world leaders need to call them out. We cannot talk peace if we keep lying about history.

Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, recently spoke at the dedication service for the Museum of the Bible in Washington. We listened as he said the values of the Bible “gave us the strength to turn tragedy into triumph, restore our sovereignty and rebuild Jerusalem, the original DC – David’s Capital.”

Second, President Trump is on the right side of history.

By recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, President Trump is affirming the Jewish people’s history. He is also correcting a long-standing historical problem and a grievous injustice.

The president is doing nothing radical. His support for Israel is in step with the West’s support for the creation of the independent State of Israel in the aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust.

Third, not recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital sets a dangerous precedent.

Refusing to do this, because of fear of what Muslim nations and Islamic terrorists might do, rewards terrorism. And it tacitly gives credence to false narratives and false maps of the world, on which “Israel” does not appear.

Denying Israel’s ancient history makes it easier for the anti-Semites and haters of Israel to oppose modern Israel’s claim to the land, including its historic capital city Jerusalem.

Many Jews and Christians offer theological arguments, citing biblical promises and prophecies about Israel being the home of the Jews. All of that is interesting, to be sure.

But the point that non-religious people should understand is that the Jewish people’s claim to the land that Israel now occupies is a historic claim based on facts – not simply a matter of faith.

The Jewish people have in fact lived in their land of Israel for more than 3.000 years and took possession of the city of Jerusalem itself almost exactly 3,000 years ago. They have lived there continuously, even though they have not always ruled over their own land.

Therefore, Israel’s legitimate claims to the land and to the city of Jerusalem itself should be accepted – regardless of your religious beliefs, or even if you have no belief whatsoever in any religion.

That, of course does not mean the Palestinians have no rights. They do. But no peace plan will succeed if and until Israel’s right to exist and its right to claim Jerusalem as its capital are universally acknowledged.

President Trump has taken the right step. People who know the real history – not a fake history – should support his decision.

THE FAKE NEWS NETWORK DOES IT AGAIN -CAUGHT WITH THEIR PANTS DOWN

CNN imploded once more.  A self inflicted wound right through their bleeding liberal heart. What was it this time? Apparently they were so eager to get out the FAKE NEWS they forgot to verify the veracity of it. What is it in a name, what is it in a date? Well a lot. CNN pushed out for anti-Trump consumption a news item relating to Wikileaks. The problem here was that CNN indicated that the Trump team had access to a secret Russian bull diatribe attributable to Hillary “jail the bird” Clinton on September 4, 2016. However, the information became available on September 14. And once again CNN was caught with their pants down.File:CNN.svg

CNN’S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS.” Trump tweeted. “Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN. Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!”

“Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday,” Trump tweeted. “They were caught red handed, just like lonely Brian Ross at ABC News (who should be immediately fired for his ‘mistake’). Watch to see if @CNN fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?”

The tweet came one day after CNN reported that the president’s son Donald Jr. and others on the Trump presidential campaign received an email on Sept. 4, 2016, telling them in advance about the release of some yet-to-be published WikiLeaks documents. These included emails from the Democratic National Committee.

However, the date was erroneous. The email was in actuality dated Sept. 14, one day after the WikiLeaks document dump.

INMATES RUNNING THE INSTITUTION

The rapist was thrown from the roof, accused of a monstrously egregious crime, that of fabricating reality. Apologies not withstanding, they suddenly come down with writers remorse. Of course we are eluding to a criminal on the deviant side, raping with abandon the written word. We find these types all the time, covered with ink and other various tools of persuasion and dreaming up stories to solidify their political agenda with conveyor belt abandon of fake news.

Many of the subjects they write about, receive glowing, and we might add, blown up egos from their fifth estate brethren. Why not, they are on the same page no matter what the subject. That is well and good until the public becomes aware of some of these antics. And today we are seeing the domino effect, many of the high and mighty have been blown from their perch. Just the other day, one of the old timers called it quits another was let go like a hot potato and another given a sabbatical. Dropping by the wayside are the holier than now pervs – the ones who never thought a second about throwing the stone from their glass house.

Attention getting “gotcha” stories are fraught with risk because the public, once admiring shock journalism, is sick and tired of biased interviews and propaganda reporting. Making the news is causing much havoc in the media world; public participation has dropped quicker than NFL attendance,. Hence they are given a kick in the groin.

News networks are on the defensive, imploding as we speak, once top draws have been euthanized, a all too late measure to stop the bleeding. Fake news will live on so will the proclivity of sexual innuendo, but what seems as a band aid may be worse than the alleged wrong doing itself.

TRUMP OUTING THE CRIMINAL LEFT

Criminals come in all colors and sizes, but one is most dangerous to democracy, the PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT. Donald J. Trump’s ascent (Podesta on election eve, a very deceptive speech- at that time he knew she got trounced)to the White House is not palatable to the inbred. Incest has taken its toll and permeated the minds of the liberal; from grade school to college they have absorbed propaganda through the education lobby ruled by union thugs. On the other hand, the conservatives among us not only question the perverse holy sanctimonious positions of the brain washed educators, we demand facts to back up their claims. However, none ever are presented. That in itself is evidence enough to belittle those with brains no larger than a pea. And Trump is taking to them. While the tornado investigation sucks up more debris, that’s all it is, only debris, Trump tweets.

President Trump Says Son ‘Openly’ Shared His Emails While Hillary Clinton ‘Acid Washed’ Hers

(WASHINGTON) — Hours before he was to help commission a new aircraft carrier at a patriotic ceremony on the Virginia coast, President Donald Trump fired off a volley of early morning tweets that again showed how furious he remains over multiple investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The tweets were unusual in their breadth and scope, even for Trump, given the wide variety of topics he touched on as Saturday dawned. His 10 tweets, all sent within two hours starting before 6:30 a.m., ranged from the Russia investigation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Hillary Clinton, the health care effort and his newly appointed White House communications director.

Trump said in one missive: “While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us. FAKE NEWS.”

President Trump Says Son ‘Openly’ Shared His Emails While Hillary Clinton ‘Acid Washed’ Hers

(WASHINGTON) — Hours before he was to help commission a new aircraft carrier at a patriotic ceremony on the Virginia coast, President Donald Trump fired off a volley of early morning tweets that again showed how furious he remains over multiple investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The tweets were unusual in their breadth and scope, even for Trump, given the wide variety of topics he touched on as Saturday dawned. His 10 tweets, all sent within two hours starting before 6:30 a.m., ranged from the Russia investigation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Hillary Clinton, the health care effort and his newly appointed White House communications director.

Trump said in one missive: “While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us. FAKE NEWS.”

The Washington Post recently reported that Trump has inquired about the authority he has as president to pardon aides, relatives or even himself in connection with the widening investigation into Russian interference in the election and whether any Trump associates were involved.

The president has long criticized leaks of information about the investigation and has urged authorities to prosecute leakers.

Trump maintains that no crimes have been committed.

One of Trump’s attorneys, Jay Sekulow, said the president has not discussed the issue of pardons with his outside legal team.

Next week, Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.; his son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner; and Paul Manafort, a former campaign chairman, are scheduled to appear before Senate committees investigating Russian meddling.

Trump defended his son, saying he “openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!” Trump’s namesake has become a focus of the investigation after it was revealed that he, Kushner and Manafort met with Russian representatives at Trump Tower in June 2016. Trump Jr. later released email exchanges concerning the meeting on Twitter, after learning that The New York Times was about to publish them.

The FBI investigated Clinton for using a private email server as secretary of state. She turned thousands of emails over to the government, but deleted thousands of others that she said were personal or unrelated to her work as the nation’s top diplomat.

Trump also complained Saturday about a Washington Post report that the Russian ambassador to the U.S. said he discussed election-related issues with Jeff Sessions when the men met during the 2016 presidential race. Sessions, now the attorney general, at the time was a U.S. senator and foreign policy adviser to Trump.

Trump tweeted: “A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!”

The Post on Friday cited anonymous U.S. officials who described U.S. intelligence intercepts of Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s descriptions of his meetings with Sessions.

The Justice Department said Sessions stands by his previous assertion that he never had conversations with Russian officials about any type of interference with the election.

Trump also said “Republican Senators must step up to the plate and, after 7 years, vote to Repeal and Replace” the Obama-era health care law. An effort to advance legislation collapsed in the Senate earlier this week after several Republicans said they wouldn’t vote for the bill.

FAKE NEWS STARTED WITH FDR

In the ’80’s the accolades were still pouring in for FDR, this was true for JFK. As we all know FDR was elected for four terms, died in office and was succeeded by the GREATEST PRESIDENT OF ALL TIME, HARRY TRUMAN. Getting back to FDR though we find many faults with the media reports during his four terms in office.

FDR promulgates executive order 6012 outlawing the private ownership of GOLD. Where it all began, in 1933. The press gave FDR a pass; like they gave one to Obama. FDR set the tone for the Deep State taking of private property without due process. Imagine what else he had up his sleeve, but nobody questioned his ultimate motives.

The stated reason for the order was that hard times had caused “hoarding” of gold, stalling economic growth and making the depression worse. The New York Times, on April 6, 1933, p. 16, wrote under the headline “Hoarding of Gold”, “The Executive Order issued by the President yesterday amplifies and particularizes his earlier warnings against hoarding. On March 6, taking advantage of a wartime statute that had not been repealed, he issued Presidential Proclamation 2039 that forbade the hoarding ‘of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency,’ under penalty of $10,000 and/or up to five to ten years imprisonment.”

Again, we reiterate the Deep State which, under FDR, took control of peoples lives. But that is not the main course here, only the appetizer. FDR was a very deceiving individual. We bring you back to his wife, a fifth cousin once removed.  Eleanor discovered her husband’s affair with Lucy Mercer in 1918, she resolved to seek fulfillment in a public life of her own.  Again this reminds us of JFK’s marital affairs which by the way were covered up with the utmost of zeal. He was careful never to be seen using his wheelchair in public, and great care was taken to prevent any portrayal in the press that would highlight his disability. Moving forward in years we are reminded of FDR’s track record, one that was never critically questioned during his four terms.

 

The recently discovered film clip of President Franklin D. Roosevelt being pushed in a wheelchair, despite showing neither Roosevelt’s face nor the wheelchair, has become an object of considerable public interest. One reason people find the clip so fascinating is that it seems to represent a radically different era in American political life—one in which the president could rely on the press corps to help him hide from the larger public something so glaringly obvious as the fact that he was a paraplegic from having contracted polio at age 39.

An NBC Nightly News report on the discovery stated that there was “a gentlemen’s agreement” between FDR and the press corps to hide the extent of his disability, and the Associated Press wrote that it was “virtually a state secret.” That has long been the conventional wisdom, repeated in countless books and articles. But it is inaccurate. In fact, the press sometimes described his condition in great detail.
