Trump Reverses Obama & Carter Policy That Israeli Settlements Violate International Law

Pro-America. Pro-Israel.

President Trump, his administration, and the Republican Party as a whole, continue to show tremendous support for the Jewish people. Why so many American Jews continue to back Democrat candidates makes little to no sense.

On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a big announcement about the Jewish homeland that directly contradicts the policies of the Carter and Obama administrations. Naturally, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu was pretty pleased. Here’s what up, via The Hill:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday that the U.S. will not consider Israeli settlements in the West Bank a violation of international law, putting American policy at odds with the widely held belief that settlement expansion is harmful to the Israeli and Palestinan peace process.

Pompeo said that the decision helps strengthen the U.S.’s position ahead of the expected release of its Mideast peace plan, authored by President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. The secretary didn’t give an update on any expected date for that plan, but said the U.S. will release it “when the conditions are right.”

Here are Bibi’s thoughts…

Prime Minister’s Office:
Today, the United States adopted an important policy that rights a historical wrong when the Trump administration clearly rejected the false claim that Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria are inherently illegal under international law.

This policy reflects an historical truth – that the Jewish people are not foreign colonialists in Judea and Samaria. In fact, we are called Jews because we are the people of Judea.

The Trump Administration policy is also correct in stating that those who have categorically denied any legal basis for the settlements not only deny truth, history and the reality on the ground,

they also set back the cause of peace, which can only be achieved through direct negotiations between the parties.

Israel’s legal system, which has proven itself fully capable of addressing legal questions related to the settlements, is the appropriate place for these matters to be adjudicated – not biased international forums that pay no attention to history or facts.

Israel remains ready and willing to conduct peace negotiations with the Palestinians regarding all final status issues in an effort to achieve a durable peace but will continue to reject all arguments regarding the illegality of the settlements.

Israel is deeply grateful to President @realDonaldTrump, @SecPompeo and the entire US administration for their steadfast position supporting truth and justice, and calls upon all responsible countries who hope to advance peace to adopt a similar position.

Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

on

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer. Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for. “So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?” https://youtu.be/X7PsSTivy1E Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign. She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending. Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from. Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.

Michelle Obama Weighs In On Trump Impeachment; Says ‘It’s Surreal’

Published

Former First Lady Michelle Obama recently opened up and expressed her thoughts on the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, stating she feels the whole thing is “surreal.” Obama recently conducted an interview with NBC’s “Today Show” where she spoke with Jenna Bush Hager. During the course of the interview, Obama said she is optimistic the division ripping through America will eventually subside. Here’s more from Fox News: The daughter of former President George W. Bush asked Obama whether the country can come back from the divisive situation unfolding in Washington, D.C., as polls show Americans largely split along party lines on impeachment. “It’s surreal, I think,” said Obama, speaking from Vietnam, where she is on a trip to promote the education of young girls. “For the last impeachment hearing [in 1998], a lot of young people weren’t around for that. I don’t think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah. “We’ve seen worse times, we’ve seen tough times in this country. You know, we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming before us that are counting on us to get this right,” Obama continued. Obama said the country should not view the impeachment inquiry as a battle of “us or them” or of Democrats against Republicans. https://twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/1204019184532885507 Obama concluded by saying, “We are all here as part of this country. We all want the same things, it’s just sometimes that gets lost in the noise.”
