No More Aid to the United Nations

128 Countries Call Trump’s Jerusalem Decision ‘Null And Void’ As Nikki Haley Threatens To Cut UN Aid

The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday denounced the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an move that U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said would cause Washington to rethink its financial support of the international organization.

In a 128-9 vote, the UNGA passed a resolution, drafted by Egypt, that expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

The resolution calls for Jerusalem’s final status to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. It also affirms that any decisions and actions that “purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem” — a thinly veiled reference to President Donald Trump’s recognition — are “null and void.” read more

WND Exclusive – Donald Trump is Making a Believer of Me

With every act – with every presidential proclamation – Donald Trump is becoming the president we’ve been hoping for since the close of Ronald Reagan’s last term. I think he has surprised most everyone.

He has had one of the most historic first years of any president in recent memory. And just imagine what his first year could have looked like if the Republican-controlled legislature weren’t so spineless and spiteful and didn’t have so many liberals in its ranks. Repeal of Obamacare would be a reality, as would more substantive tax relief, and border wall construction would be well underway. It could have and should have been the most consequential year of any presidency going back to our founding. And I don’t say this lightly. read more

Why is the Trump administration backing off of the President’s rather definitive campaign declaration to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel-Aviv to its rightful place in Jerusalem?

January 22, 2017

I’m trying my best not to condemn Trump and his people for not doing what he promised (and he did promise), right off of the bat, but I am beginning to wonder and worry on a growing number of campaign promises, just what has changed from campaign to White House.

Now, despite me writing a fair bit about Israel, I don’t have any particular love for, or peculiar fetish regarding the tiny nation. But as most of us are, maybe I’m just a big fan of underdogs.

Every movie ever made about the oppressed, singled-out, or otherwise unnecessarily put-upon underdog, finds those who view, cheering for the little guy.

And it’s always the same story. The underdog is just that. He or she is weaker, slower, smaller, disabled, not as intelligent, etc. – but somehow in the end, finds a way to prevail. It’s the story of David vs. Goliath told over and over again in hundreds of ways.

But not all underdogs are cheered. One in particular evokes the opposite emotional response from many. Of course this is the aforementioned Israel. The only nation hated by more of the Globe than the United States of America. read more
