Most Americans have no idea how the Israeli elections work. Their system is very different from ours, which is why it’s difficult for many to understand the complexities that determine how their government is assembled.
Based on projections and exit polls, it appears the right-wing bloc of parties were able to secure more than 61 seats, the threshold necessary to give them control of the government, including making Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu Prime Minister again. Though both Netanyahu and the center-left bloc’s Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Party celebrated victory, the end result will almost certainly be a win for the current Prime Minister.

This is an important development for Americans and Israelis alike. The left in Israel would continue to push for policies that would put them at risk for the sake of a false peace. If that happens, the United States will be pushed into a choice we don’t want to make – helping our allies in Israel at the peril of our military men and women or back away from them, leaving them defenseless. It’s important for America’s own security that our only true ally in the Middle East is strong and safe.
Netanyahu represents the conservative side of Israeli politics. His right wing block, which will be comprised of his Likud party as well well as 4-6 others, will form the government once it’s made official by President Reuven Rivlin. He will speak to leaders from all of the relevant parties to see who they support for Prime Minister, then will call on the person who is most likely to get 61 seats in the Knesset in his coalition to form the government.
Now is not the time to go into a tutorial of how Israel’s parliamentary government works. The important thing is barring some craziness in the final five percent of votes to be counted, Netanyahu will end up being Prime Minister for another term, during which he will become the longest-serving Prime Minister in Israeli history.
“It was an ugly election, this one, uglier than most because it was so non-ideological: so little about issues, and so much about personalities.” – Herb Keinon
Benjamin Netanyahu has been a great friend to America just as President Trump has been a great friend to Israel. This relationship can continue now, making the strongest alliance we have in the Middle East even stronger.

U.S. halts new aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras until steps are taken to end border crisis
The State Department announced Monday the United States will discontinue sending new foreign aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras until the Central American nations take “concrete action” to curb the flow of illegal immigrants to our southern border.
“We completed a review, and previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding,” said State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus. “State Department assistance in support of priorities of the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security priorities to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue.”
In March, President Trump said he would stop sending aid until they figure out how to do their part to stop the border crisis.
Ortagus continued, “We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of illegal migrants coming to the U.S. border.”

But, of course, I have a few more words than that. I’ve always acknowledged the border crisis must be handled on multiple fronts as past presidents have tried to strengthen security. But Trump is the first to try to force nations at the sources of the problem to get fixed. First, he negotiated with Mexico to do their part. Now, he’s asking the same from the Northern Triangle nations to do the same.
If the people have no reason to leave, they won’t. But as long as they are made to feel they need to come to America to have a normal life, they’ll continue to try to do so. It’s good that not all aid is being held back, as much of it is used to benefit us. But the threat of no new aid is big as all three nations rely on the United States to operate their own governments.
I couldn’t agree more with this sentiment…
Good, let's end foreign aid to other countries that hate us now. https://t.co/MiB8Qx1CLD

It behooves these countries to do what they can to retain their citizens. With as much as 1/3rd of their populations claiming to want to come to America, these countries must do more to help themselves.
Steve Hilton: Democrats ‘are totally corrupted by foreign government lobbying and cash’
Anyone American who’s been awake at any point over the last three years has heard of the Russia scandal. Following President Trump’s comments last week signaling a willingness to accept information from foreign governments, the Democrats were apoplectic. But as Steve Hilton noted on Fox News last night, the real scandal actually surrounds them.
Hilton called this segment, “The people versus Democrat hypocrites.” He cited known examples of foreign lobbyists from Mexico, Saudi Arabia, China, and even Russia paying the very Democrats who are beside themselves stirring up the media to attack the President’s comments. But in the battle of his words versus their actions, the hypocrisy is thick. Watching Democrats make accusations about foreign powers influencing him would be like watching Bill Cosby complain about how the President treats women.
It’s imperative for every patriotic American, whether Republican, Democrat, or Independent, to see through the lies being told by the swamp and disseminated through the mainstream media. Their hypocrisy is thick on multiple levels, which is why we encourage our readers to help us spread the truth by donating to our cause.
There truly is corruption in DC by foreign powers, but it’s not happening at the White House despite what the “news” outlets report. Foreign influence runs through Capitol Hill and the Democrats are their favorite targets.
Ben Shapiro attacks media’s unhinged reaction to Iran and Trump
An article we posted earlier caught my attention. I’ll admit, it’s Fathers’ Day and I haven’t been watching the news very closely, but I didn’t realize that even after the revelation that Iran almost certainly attacked oil tankers last week and last month, the media is still pushing the Trump war-mongering narrative.
In doing further research, I came across this Daily Wire video by Ben Shapiro. He was highlighting the lies by the press two days ago, and as they continue to double down on their lies, Americans are being put at risk. Keep in mind that as our EIC pointed out, this false narrative about the President plays right into Iran’s hands. They want the world and the American people to believe President Trump is the aggressor.
What most people fail to understand is the media is willing to hurt you if it hurts Trump in the process. They’ll push the false narrative and help Iran with no concern for America’s interests.
