Jared Kushner busy drumming up support for Trump’s betrayal of Israel

Jared Kushner busy drumming up support for Trumps betrayal of Israel

Donald Trump finally made it to Vietnam — I guess his bone spurs aren’t bothering him anymore — to hold a secret rendezvous with Kim Jong-Un, the murderous dictator he “fell in love” with after receiving several “beautiful letters” from him, to discuss Kim’s non-existent nuclear disarmament plan.

Meanwhile, Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, is in the Middle East visiting Gulf Arab states to promote his pro-Palestinian peace plan for Israel and the non-existent State of Palestine. However, if Jared, Ivanka, and Daddy Trump have their way, a Palestinian state will soon be a reality, and Israel will pay for it with the currency of lost sovereignty and security.

In an interview broadcast on Sky News Arabia, Kushner did Trump proud by boasting about the peace plan his father-in-law is calling the “deal of the century” while providing absolutely no details. However, based on statements made by Trump and Kushner over the past six months, I think we know the details he tried to hide.

During a West Virginia campaign rally in August 2018, Trump essentially threatened Israel with extortion to get a “peace” deal done with the Palestinians.

“And you know what? In the negotiation, Israel will have to pay a higher price because they want a very big thing, but I took it off the table. There’s nothing to negotiate but [the Palestinians will] get something very good because it’s their turn next.

“Let’s see what happens. It’s very interesting. I’ve always heard that’s the toughest deal of all deals — it’s called peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”

One month later, Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after giving a speech to the U.N. In a news conference following the meeting, Trump endorsed the oft-failed two-state solution as the best way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I like (a) two-state solution. That’s what I think works best. That’s my feeling. Now, you may have a different feeling. I don’t think so. But I think two-state solution works best.”

Comparing the conflict in the Middle East to a real estate deal, Trump also stated that he would support a one-state solution as well.

“If the Israelis and the Palestinians want one-state, that’s okay with me. If they want two states, that’s okay with me. I’m happy if they’re happy.”

Translation? I have no firm convictions. I’ll do whatever Jared and Ivanka tell me to do.

Last month, the Jerusalem Post reported that Jared Kushner would begin making a push for Trump’s peace plan ahead of the 2020 U.S. election, but that he would wait to disclose the details until after Israel’s April election. Why wait? The administration is hoping there will be enough turnover in April to garner support for the two-state solution.

While playing coy about his intention to push for a Palestinian state, Kushner stated in the Sky News Arabia interview that his plan will be built on “a lot of the efforts of the past,” including the 1990s Oslo accords that provided for a Palestinian state. He also said his proposal is a “political plan, which is very detailed” and that it’s “really about establishing borders and resolving final-status issues.”

Sounds like Israel is about to be betrayed by the man Netanyahu once called a “true friend.”

Here’s hoping there’s a plan we don’t know about with North Korea

Heres hoping theres a plan we dont know about with North Korea

In a move that many, including supporters on the right, are calling a move of weakness, the President reversed the Treasury Department’s additional sanctions on North Korea.

My Take

I’m just not sure what to make of this. I understand many have been concerned about how nicely the President has treated Kim Jong un, but I’ve always felt there was some sort of plan happening behind the scenes that would justify it. Now, I’m not so sure.

This move emboldens Kim to continue avoiding any compromise on his nuclear weapons program. It tells him and the rest of the world President Trump isn’t going to be playing hardball and intends to coax the North Korean dictator into signing some sort of agreement before the 2020 elections.

Dare I say, this seems very Obamaesque? Where’s the hardball? Where’s the threats against Rocketman? If there’s some sort of 4D chess being played in the background, I seriously hope we see it in play soon. This is a strange move.

Mike Pompeo responds to Venezuela, Biden’s world tour, Hezbollah, and Israel

Mike Pompeo responds to Venezuela Bidens world tour Hezbollah and Israel

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Fox News last night to talk to Shannon Bream about the tumultuous state of affairs around the world and how the United States is handling them.

First, he discussed Venezuela and recent developments where Nicolas Maduro’s regime has essentially framed members of Juan Guaido’s team in an effort to jail and stop the opposition to his presidency there. The Secretary of State said they would hold Maduro’s regime accountable for their actions, but would not elaborate on how U.S. intervention in the poverty-torn nation would manifest.

He jabbed at potential Democratic 2020 candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, who is being allegedly courted by world leaders to run for the White House in hopes he could bring back proper relations. As Pompeo noted, our relations with world leaders is in a current state of positive action despite the President’s harsh stance with many of them.

As for Hezbollah, Pompeo said the U.S. would press Lebanon for the sake of its people to facilitate change from the anti-Israel, anti-American Hezbollah rule that has basically made the nation a pawn for Iran.

As for the Israel front. where Pompeo was speaking from, he said calls by people like Beto O’Rourke and others to undermine the conservative base shared by the United States and Israel would not help the situation. Only through the President’s peace plan can the Middle East move forward, according to Pompeo.

My Take

Until the Venezuelan government asks directly for help, there should be no action by the United States other than aid for the people. This is an internal affair. Just because the leadership is challenged doesn’t make it our problem. If there was ever a time when the United Nations should flex its puny muscles, that time is now and the place is Venezuela.

Any foreign leaders calling on Biden to replace Trump are doing so because they do not want the United States to continue to maintain and improve upon its position of strength on the world stage. They prefer the good ol’ days under President Obama when the United States was a pawn for many other nations.

Hezbollah must go. That’s not to say we need to be involved with that, but Lebanon will never be free and prosperous as long as they’re the proxy for Iran.

Lastly, the Secretary of State seemed to be echoing a notion that the President would push for a 2-state solution. If that’s the case, it’s a huge mistake. Otherwise, Pompeo is correct in asserting the backwards notions of the Democrats lashing out against President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

We’re in a time when foreign affairs are starting to take center stage. Yes, we have problems of our own, but to ignore the growing threats abroad would be a mistake. It’s good the administration is handling these issues.

Kudos to the President for calling on the U.S. to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights

Kudos to the President for calling on the US to recognize Israels sovereignty over the Golan Heights

It’s always hard to tell where the administration may be going following policy Tweets from the President. He’s been known to say one thing, then the administration slowly shifts reality away from the initial intent of the Tweet. On the other hand, many of his Tweets have turned into policy. It’s just a matter of waiting and seeing what the official word from the White House is.

In this case, it’s the President’s bold declaration that the Golan Heights, considered by enemies of Israel to be disputed territory, is actually sovereign Israeli land. As he noted in the Tweet, this is long overdue.

Considering the stances the President has been taking on Twitter this week with sustained attacks on George Conway and John McCain, this is a breath of fresh air. If Israel ever gave up he Golan Heights, they would be losing one of the most important strategic areas through which enemy militaries could easily become entrenched and launch attacks that would be difficult for Israel to counter. While the IDF enjoys technological advances over their enemies, terrain and proximity are still major factors in the defense of their lands. The Golan Heights represents a piece of land that must never be given easy access to their enemies.

There’s one important caveat to the kudos I’m giving the President. If it turns out acknowledgement of the Golan Heights as sovereign territory is used as a precursor to asking Israel to give up the West Bank in a Middle East peace agreement, then it’s a whole other situation entirely. Just as giving up the Golan Heights would make Israel a very easy target, so too would the idea of a two state solution that grants “Palestine” control over the West Bank.

If the motives are pure, this is a great move. If this is an early olive branch, it’s dangerous.

Israel’s control of the Golan Heights is absolutely essential to its security. The lands just south would be completely indefensible if the United Nations ever got its way and the Golan Heights fell under control of Israel’s enemies.
