Shock As President Trump In Israel Blows Off Promise To Move Embassy To Jerusalem Saying ‘That’s A Good One’ • Now The End Begins

Out of all the comments he could have said, that is the one comment, that in my mind, comes as close to “I’ve decided not to keep my campaign promise to move the embassy” as you can possibly get. True, you never know what Trump will do as we witnessed in the Comey firing, but as far as ominous signs go, this one bodes not well.

Shortly after landing in Ben Gurion Airport Monday afternoon, President Trump shook hands with members of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet.

“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3 (KJV)

While most cabinet members made do with a simple “Hello, Mr. President”, “Welcome to Israel”, or other pleasantries, Bennett took the opportunity to make a personal, if brief, appeal to the president to make good on his 2016 campaign promise to recognize Jerusalem as the united capital of Israel.

“Welcome to Israel. It’s Jerusalem’s birthday, you know – 50 years,” Bennett told the president. “This is the time to recognize Jerusalem.”

Trump responded to Bennett saying, “That’s a good one…” before moving on. You can read the rest of the story here on the  IsraeliNationalNews.com website.

Hmm, interesting comment for the president to make, “that’s a good one”. Out of all the comments he could have said, that is the one comment, that in my mind, comes as close to “I’ve decided not to keep my campaign promise to move the embassy” as you can possibly get. True, you never know what Trump will do as we witnessed in the Comey firing, but as far as ominous signs go, this one bodes not well.

It is a far cry from his oft-repeated campaign promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the same as the capital city of Israel, as we see here below:

Not only that, not once during his two day stay in the Holy Land have I heard President Trump utter a single sentence of support for Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel. If you have a link to a story or video showing him vocalizing support for Jerusalem and Israel, please post it in the comments section below.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995

For those of you who don’t know The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 was sponsored by Sen. Bob Dole, signed into law by then-president Bill Clinton, and became enacted on November 8, 1995. The act stipulates that Jerusalem “should remain an undivided city” and “should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel.”

The law further states that the above should occur no later than May 31, 1999 – but adds the famous “presidential waiver” clause allowing the president to suspend the law’s implementation for six months “if he determines and reports to Congress in advance that such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.”

All three presidents since then – Clinton, Bush, and Obama – have availed themselves of this privilege, and the embassy has remained in Tel Aviv. Donald Trump campaigned hard on the promise that he would be the president who would finally buck the status quo and actually move the Embassy to Jerusalem. And this is where things get interesting.

On June 1, the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 will automatically take effect unless President Trump moves to stop it

As of the time of this writing, President Trump is physically in the nation of Israel, visiting Jerusalem. Is it possible he will make the announcement to move the Embassy to Jerusalem? Yes, it is possible though not likely probable. As previously stated, he has yet to utter word one regarding Jerusalem as the “undivided capital of Israel”.

But in exactly 9 days from today, on June 1st, the move to finally authorize the switch to Jerusalem will automatically be triggered. All Trump has to do is nothing, just let it happen. This is something that all presidents over the past 22 years did not have the guts to do. At the last second, they all signed the waiver to delay it for another 6 months.

In exactly 9 days from today, the world will know if Donald Trump is the true “agent of change” he promised to be, by allowing the waiver stopping the Embassy transfer to expire. But if he signs a new waiver, then you may rightly expect he will never authorize the move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

If President Trump doesn’t fulfill the very promise that allowed him to win against all odds, if America refuses to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, then you would have to ask a very serious and sobering question. And that very simply is this.

What does God need America for anyway, and why should He continue to preserve us, if we cannot acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel?

RINO John McCain Comes Out Swinging Against President Trump, Joins Chorus Of Far-Left Voices • Now The End Begins

John McCain’s comments add to rumblings among certain other Republicans on Capitol Hill who have signaled their willingness to abandon Trump over the allegations in Comey’s memo and reports of discussion of classified information with Russian diplomats. The Hill reported Wednesday that the Comey Memo was causing more GOPers to try and detach their legislative agenda from the president.
john-mccain-anti-trump-compares-to-watergate-rino

Longtime Trump opponent Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) added his voice to the chorus of alarm Tuesday in the wake of a New York Times report on an alleged memo from ex-FBI Director James Comey.

“We’ve seen this movie before,” McCain told CBS News’s Bob Schieffer. “I think it’s reaching the point where it’s of Watergate size and scale… it’s a centipede that the shoe continues to drop.”

“Every couple of days, there’s a new aspect of this really unhappy situation… None of us, no matter what our political leanings are, no matter how we feel about Trump, feel this is not good for America,” McCain added.

The comments are the harshest yet from the GOP side of the aisle and come as some Democrats are openly calling for President Donald Trump impeachment over the “Comey Memo.” Rep. Al Green (D-TX) did so on the House floor Tuesday morning.

McCain: Trump’s actions are of “Watergate size and scale”

John McCain’s comments add to rumblings among certain other Republicans on Capitol Hill who have signaled their willingness to abandon Trump over the allegations in Comey’s memo and reports of discussion of classified information with Russian diplomats. The Hill reported Wednesday that the Comey Memo was causing more GOPers to try and detach their legislative agenda from the president.

Hilton: Establishment wants Trump out right now

McCain has been a proponent of the Russian election-influence narrative, and a central figure in Senate hearings on the issue. He expressed his dismay over President Trump’s decision to dismiss Comey last week.

The six-term senator and 2008 GOP nominee for president has been a pillar of anti-Trump Republicans since shortly after Trump’s announcement in 2015 when the two became embroiled in a controversy over Trump’s comment on McCain’s time as a Vietnam POW. “Never Trump” commentator Bill Kristol even called for McCain to intervene as an independent candidate on the eve of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

McCain’s opposition to Russia’s foreign policy ambitions, dating back to the Cold War era, has played a central role in his political career. In his 2008 bid for the presidency, McCain famously wrote that “we are all Georgians” in advocating a stronger American response to the contemporaneous Russian military intervention in the small Caucasian state. He similarly called for the United States to provide military aid to Ukraine in 2014.

Although he stopped well short of calling for impeachment or resignation, the ultimate fate of President Richard Nixon in the 1970s scandal he referenced, McCain’s appraisal of the situation fits neatly into an emerging mainstream media narrative that Trump’s actions rise to an equivalent level. source

Crazed Democrats And RINO GOP’ers Are Now Preparing To Call For President Trump’s Impeachment • Now The End Begins

Last week, Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin suggested the country needed an “impeachment clock” to track how close the president was to being removed from office. Pressure might also mount from the party’s liberal base, which has grown in size and relevance since Trump’s election, to call for impeachment.
democrats-call-for-trump-impeachment

Democratic strategists are racing to figure out whether it’s politically wise to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, as one bombshell revelation after another about his ties to Russia is forcing candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives to consider the question far sooner than anyone had expected.

In a significant development, party operatives say they expect Democrats to poll-test the public’s views on impeachment, trying to acquire hard data about an issue that until now has not been seriously analyzed. Other strategists say that candidates and party organizations will begin conducting focus groups on the question.

These operatives acknowledge they’ve been caught off guard by the speed with which impeachment has become a relevant issue – and are wary of the political damage it could cause if not handled correctly.

Even 10 days ago, before Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, few party officials had even considered such a dramatic move, which has happened only twice in American history.

“I mean, man, it’s not even Memorial Day!” said one Democratic operative.

Marxist Maxine Waters Calls for Impeachment of Pres. Trump at Tax Day Rally

Only after testing the question with voters will the party have a firmer sense of how it should act.

“I have no clue, to be honest,” another Democratic operative said when asked what party strategists made of the politics of impeachment after The New York Times reported on a Comey memo that alleges Trump asked the then-FBI director to drop his probe of the president’s first national security adviser. “Still processing what we’re reading in The Times.”

So far, a handful of Democratic lawmakers have outright called for impeachment. Most have preferred a more cautious approach, calling for a special prosecutor to oversee the investigation into Trump officials’ possible ties to Russia.

Democratic strategists emphasized that they expect that questions of independent investigations – and not calls for impeachment – will be the overwhelming focus for the party in the coming days.

But on Tuesday night, CNN reported that even Republican lawmakers are now debating whether to support an independent prosecutor or independent commission after the latest round of revelations.

And some Democrats are starting to at least entertain the possibility of impeachment.

“If it is, in fact, true, then yes, that is an impeachable offense,” said Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, on CNN.

The Real News Coming Out Of Washington Is That President Trump Is The Target Of A Political Coup • Now The End Begins

The bottom line is that we have some very powerful people in Washington who really don’t like how democracy played out this time around and what they do to attack it next isn’t going to be any better than what they’re doing now.
president-trump-overthrow-coup-attempt-obama-shadow-government

Someone at the highest levels of government has leaked information to the news media about President Trump’s discussions with Russian officials. That’s potentially a serious crime. And, this wasn’t the first time.

EDITOR’S NOTE: By now it has become obvious to even the casual observer that our president is under dire, direct and sustained attack. There is a very powerful and organized behind-the-scenes campaign to destroy his presidency. All signs point to the Obama Shadow Government whose HQ is mere blocks from the White House. The fake news media has been relentless with their made-up reporting of half-truths while completely ignoring the real issues. The Far Left will stop at nothing to take down Trump, even if it includes a trip to the grassy knoll. 

There is, indeed, a bombshell of a story coming out of the news that President Donald Trump revealed sensitive information during his White House meeting with Russian officials last week. But it’s not that President Trump committed any crime. The really alarming news is that the duly-elected President of the United States appears to be the target of a political coup.

First, let’s be clear: President Trump has been sloppy, arrogant, and just plain misguided plenty of times during his short tenure in office — including the way he handled the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the hiring and firing of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. And if he did unnecessarily compromise the source of the sensitive information he shared with the Russians, shame on him.

But a president cannot be removed from office for arrogance and sloppiness. The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

Hannity: 5 major forces are aligning to take down Trump

Here’s what I think is the bigger scandal: Someone at the highest levels of government has leaked information to the news media about President Trump’s discussions with Russian officials. That’s potentially a serious crime. And, this wasn’t the first time.

What all of the leaked stories have in common is that they were immediately beset with multiple leaks from highly placed officials meant to deeply defame President Trump. Once again, it’s important to note that a good deal of these leaks may, indeed, be illegal. The Espionage Act bans transmitting or communicating information “relating to the national defense” if the leaker believes the information could be used to harm the United States or aid a foreign nation. And it’s hard to see how these many leaks aren’t helping our enemies.

Hillary commands her followers to resist the Trump administration:

Where are these leaks coming from? When we look at the most likely sources, we find no real comfort. The first possibility is that someone close to President Trump himself is essentially acting like a mole in the White House. Remember that when the story broke Monday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell were all in the room with President Trump and the Russians last week and they all flatly denied the news reports. If one of them is saying one thing publicly and something else to contacts in the news media, that is certainly not encouraging.

Then-candidate Donald Trump indeed insulted the intelligence community during the election, and many have concluded that this is their plotted revenge.

Almost as bad is the possibility that someone on one of the congressional intelligence committees is the source of this and other leaks. It’s one thing to use domestic policy or even overt foreign policy information to oppose a sitting president. It’s another to compromise knowledge of intelligence briefing materials to do so.

Obama creating a ‘shadow government?’

Here’s the kicker: None of this is actually working where it counts. Again, we have not one piece of evidence of any impeachable act. And it’s not even truly working in the polls. President Trump’s approval ratings may be lower than any modern president this early in his tenure, but they’re still higher than they were throughout the election. If anything, these constant attacks coming from this obviously angry and potentially illegal place are only strengthening the resolve of Trump’s base of supporters. They elected a guy they believed was truly the enemy of the established political class. And right on cue, the established political class is stopping at nothing to prove them right.

For all the things President Trump has said that have dragged down the level of our American political discourse, this sustained takedown effort is worse. And it’s not clear how this is going to end. Unlike President Trump, the leakers remain anonymous and thus unaccountable. They can presumably go on forever. And President Trump doesn’t seem like he’s going to stop fighting back or irritating and threatening his political opponents.

But don’t fool yourself into thinking this is OK or even tolerable. The bottom line is that we have some very powerful people in Washington who really don’t like how democracy played out this time around and what they do to attack it next isn’t going to be any better than what they’re doing now.

Luckily the American people remain wisely circumspect about all of this. President Trump’s polls aside, the voters are still giving him a decent shot to govern. And unaccountable people in Washington shouldn’t be trying to make that decision for us. source

Two-Time Loser Hillary Clinton Launches ‘Dark Money’ Website To Attack Trump Administration • Now The End Begins

 

Fast forward a year-and-a-half, and Clinton can count herself among the leaders of the “unaccountable dark money” groups. It’s just the latest twist in the long political saga that has become the Clintons’ legacy.
hillary-clinton-launches-onward-together-dark-money-web-site-resist

Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton officially launched a new organization on Monday, ‘Onward Together’, with the stated goal of “advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”

Put more bluntly, the group’s mission is to advance Clinton’s agenda, which was unable to defeat Donald Trump.

But buried on the donation page is this nugget:

Contributions or gifts to Onward Together, a 501(c)(4) organization, are not tax deductible as charitable contributions or as business deductions.

By listing itself as a 501(c)(4), Clinton is able to take so-called “dark money,” or money from donors who legally do not have to be disclosed, in unlimited amounts.

In October 2015, during a town hall meeting in Iowa, Clinton called 501(c)(4) groups “unaccountable dark money,” and even used the left’s favorite boogey-men, the Koch brothers, as an example of a group that operates this kind of organization:

Mother’s Day: Obama praised ‘transgender’ moms, Trump celebrated ‘incredible women’ | News | LifeSite

May 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — President Trump celebrated Mother’s Day with a White House proclamation bereft of LGBTQ references in a departure from predecessor Barack Obama, who previously used the mom-honoring day to promote homosexuality and gender-confusion, including biological men claiming to be women.

“Today and every day, we honor the incredible women whose influence on the world is beyond measure. They brighten America’s future by shaping the character of each new generation,” states the Trump proclamation. “They lead us through our deepest lessons about perseverance and hard work, preparing us for life’s responsibilities.”

Compare that to Obama’s final Mother’s Day proclamation in 2016 in which he wrote: “Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, mothers have always moved our Nation forward and remained steadfast in their pursuit of a better and brighter future for their children.”

As LifeSiteNews reported at the time, Obama’s 2016 reference to “transgender” “mothers” was the “first-ever explicit reference to biological males acting as mothers in the history of the annual presidential message.”

WND.com Managing Editor David Kupelian, author of the book The Snapping of the American Mind, called the Obama statement “head-spinning LGBT madness.”

“With Obama, everything is political – employed to advance his perversely transformative agenda,” even Mother’s Day, Kupelian said.

OUT! Shock As President Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey, Says ‘Public Confidence Must Be Restored’ • Now The End Begins

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter to Mr. Comey dated Tuesday.
president-trump-fires-james-comey-fbi-director-over-hillary-clinton-emails

President Trump has fired the director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey, over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, the White House said on Tuesday.

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you had ANY doubt that President Trump intends on “draining the swamp”, let this reassure you. Trump will keep ALL of his promises, including the one where he promised to “lock her up“. Watch yourself, Crooked Hillary, the Trump Train getting ready to pull into our station soon. The issue your illegal email server and those 33,000 deleted emails WILL be dealt with.

James Comey was leading an investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter to Mr. Comey dated Tuesday.

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Mr. Trump wrote. Officials at the F.B.I. said they were not immediately aware of Mr. Comey’s dismissal, which Mr. Trump described as effective immediately.

LIVE: James Comey Fired by President Trump

In a separate letter released at the White House, spokesman Sean Spicer said that the president informed the director that he has been “terminated and removed from office.”

Memos released by the White House show that Rod J. Rosenstein, the newly sworn-in deputy attorney general, recommended that Mr. Comey be fired over how he disclosed the investigation into Mrs. Clinton.

Mr. Comey broke with longstanding tradition and policies by discussing the case and chastising the Democratic presidential nominee’s “careless” handling of classified information. Then, in the campaign’s final days, Mr. Comey announced that the F.B.I. was reopening the case, a move that earned him widespread criticism.

“The F.B.I. is one of our nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Mr. Trump said in the statement.

A longtime prosecutor who served as the deputy attorney general during the George W. Bush administration, Mr. Comey came into office with widespread bipartisan support.

Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon and a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a post on Twitter that Mr. Comey “should be immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of Russia/Trump investigation at the time he was fired. source
