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.

Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

on

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019. The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to Ukraine. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.” The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate. “The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.” How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

Republican Senator Attacks CNN Reporter; Calls Him A ‘Liberal Hack’

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally proved in a recent spat with a CNN reporter that she is not the kind of individual you want to mess with. McSally was asked about recent developments that have been unfolding would make her change her mind about impeaching President Trump. To say the answer was a resounding no would be an understatement. McSally ripped into the reporter calling him a “liberal hack.” Someone’s been taking lessons on counterpunching from President Trump. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: On Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian associate Lev Parnas claimed that “Trump knew” about all of the shady efforts taking place in Ukraine, including the alleged stalking of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas said, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on. He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president.” On Thursday morning, CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to ask the Arizona Republican about the developments and how it could change her impeachment vote. He asked, “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial.” She responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” Raju followed up, “You’re not going to comment.” McSally brushed him off and echoed her earlier retort of calling him a “liberal hack.” https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1217822020848771074 McSally went on to double down on her claim about Manu being a liberal hack in a video posted to Twitter: https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1217829609808547841 Well, she’s not wrong. Perhaps Manu is still in the first step of denial about the role he is playing in the modern media? Regardless, he certainly got served by McSally, extra crispy on both sides.
