Nobody Realized Trump Made Jerusalem Decision Exactly 1 Year After Obama Gave Holy Sites to Islam


Reported By Martin Walsh | December 10, 2017 at 8:50am

President Donald Trump’s historic announcement on Jerusalem last week is even more special when Americans remember how former President Barack Obama stabbed Israel in the back this time last year.

In 2011, Obama began taking part in further escalating the tensions between the Israeli’s and Palestinian’s by siding with Islamic terrorists over our strongest allies in the Middle East.

As noted by the Tea Party, Obama’s plans included Israel giving up large swaths of its land, including many holy sites, and the Arabs making “good faith” promises that they never kept.

Obama urged Israel to give the terrorist-supporting Palestinians half of Jerusalem, Old Jerusalem, Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and the Via Dolorosa.

Most notably, Via Dolorosa is the street in the Old City of Jerusalem that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion.

Obama’s degradation of the U.S.-Israel relationship came to a head on Dec. 23 last year, when he used a United Nations Security Council resolution to effectively sign over the holiest sites in Judaism and Christendom to radical Muslim groups. The Obama administration even played a major role in writing the United Nations Security Counsel draft that put the move into action.

A year after Obama’s treacherous move, Trump made history Wednesday by announcing that the U.S. would be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump said the U.S. will officially recognize Jerusalem and the capital of Israel, a bold move former presidents only talked about doing but never had the guts to do.

Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem shows that Trump is taking steps to bolster the United States’ already strong relationship with the Jewish state.

Obama’s self-defeating policy toward Israel for years proved he was a blundering amateur who refused to see how his decisions to disrespect Israel and take their holy land ruined the prospects for peace and further inflamed tensions in the region.

Israel has learned that it now has a true friend in the White House, and this historic move by Trump solidifies Israel’s position as owner and ruler of the holy city.

After years of Obama supporting nations that fund terrorists groups across the Middle East, Trump has made it clear that the U.S. stands with Israel.

The rest of the world is learning that, too.

Donald Trump Shrinks Federal Monuments In Utah: ‘You Know Best How to Take Care of Your Land’


Reported by Charlie Spiering | 4 Dec 2017

President Donald Trump used his authority under the Antiquities Act to shrink the size of two massive national monuments designated by former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Trump returned the land back to the people of Utah.

“The families and communities of Utah know and love this land the best, and you know the best how to take care of your land,” Trump said during a visit to Utah. “You know how to protect it, and you know best how to conserve this land for many, many generations to come.”

Trump took the unusual step of shrinking the amount of land protected by the Antiquities Act, despite an outcry from leftist environmental groups.

“I’ve come to Utah to take a very historic action to reverse federal overreach and restore the rights of this land to your citizens,” Trump said during the event, which included Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, Utah Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, as well as Governor Gary Herbert.

Obama designated 1.35 million acres of land to serve as the Bears Ears National Monument right before he left office in 2016. Clinton designated 1.9 million acres in Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante monument. Both monuments were reduced after Secretary Zinke conducted a study of both monuments.

The president reminded the audience that the Antiquities’ Act required a president to protect the “smallest necessary area” for conservation. He commented that previous administrations “severely abused” their powers under the Antiquities Act to lock up millions of acres of land and water under federal control.

“With the action I’m taking today, we will not only give back your voice over the use of this land, we will also restore your access and your enjoyment,” Trump said.

Travel Ban Back in Place, SCOTUS Halts Lower Court Injunctions


Reported by Ian Mason | 4 Dec 2017 | Washington, DC

President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order is once again to largely go back into effect after the Supreme Court of the United States stayed two lower courts’ injunctions Monday.

The orders come in response to filings by the Department of Justice Friday, asking the Supreme Court to stay the preliminary injunctions in the two main travel ban cases, Hawaii v. Trump in the Ninth Circuit and International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump in the Fourth Circuit. These cases have been proceeding up and down the federal court system for months.

The district courts, especially that of Barack Obama-appointed District of Hawaii Judge Derrick Watson, have repeatedly ruled that the bans must be blocked from going into effect or must, in the interim, be interpreted in such a way as to have little effect on the list of mostly Muslim majority countries from which travel is prohibited under the orders.

The petitions in the two cases were made to Justice Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts respectively. Only Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor declined to sign on to the orders staying the Fourth and Ninth Circuits.

“This a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in statement after the orders were announced.

He continued:

We are pleased to have defended this order and heartened that a clear majority Supreme Court has allowed the President’s lawful proclamation protecting our country’s national security to go into full effect.  The Constitution gives the President the responsibility and power to protect this country from all threats foreign and domestic, and this order remains vital to accomplishing those goals.

With the order, the third – permanent – version of the travel ban, promulgated in September after an interagency review of the dangers posed by the different countries included, will go back into effect while the case on the merits works its way through the court system. The Supreme Court had dismissed the earlier lawsuits based on the earlier, temporary versions of the ban because they had expired.

The government, represented by Solicitor General Noel Francisco, asked the justices to re-instate the ban based in part on the findings of the review, which provided new security-based justifications for the inclusion of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen and, he argues, turns the likelihood of success against the plaintiffs.

As UK Slams Trump for “Islamaphobic Tweets,” Their Terror Levels Hit Record High

Despite complaints from U.K. officials about President Donald Trump’s decision this week to retweet the allegedly “anti-Muslim” video posts of a British anti-Islam activist, evidence suggests both Trump and the activist he retweeted have valid points about radical Islam’s presence in Europe — and especially the U.K.

In a stunning report published Wednesday, The Guardian revealed that “the number of people arrested for terrorism-linked offences (in the U.K.) rose by more than two-thirds to a record 379 in the 12 months to June — one of the most intense periods for terrorist attacks in recent history.”

Of those 379 suspects, nearly a third were eventually charged with terrorism offenses, while nearly 18 percent still face further investigation.

The publication of this report occurred on the same day that Trump retweeted three video posts from British activist Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of British First, a reportedly “far-right” political party that opposes mass migration.

One of the video posts showed radical Muslims pushing a teenage boy off a roof and then beating him to death, while the second video showed Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. According to The Daily Wire, the first video was shot in Egypt five years ago, while the second video was shot in Syria one year later. In a third video retweet, a Dutch boy could be seen beating up another Dutch boy, though Fransen mistakenly claimed one of the boys was Muslim.

Following the U.S. president’s retweets, a number of prominent British officials condemned Trump, including Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London.

British Prime Minister Theresa May chimed in as well, decrying Britain First as “a hateful organization” that “seeks to sow division and hate and mistrust in our communities,” according to ABC News. “It stands in opposition to our fundamental values we hold as a country.”

But as noted by Robert Spencer, a Fox News contributor known for his criticisms of Islam, those castigating Trump seemed more focused on whom he retweeted versus the actual content of the tweets.

“I have not seen any Muslim spokesmen say, ‘There is a problem (in Islam) we need to deal with,’” he said in a statement to Breitbart. “They are all just criticizing Trump. … (Former President Barack) Obama did everything he could to whitewash the image of Islam — Trump is calling attention to atrocities that are committed in the name of name of Islam.”

As well as the rise of radicalism across the world, but especially so in the U.K.

What an Actual Descendant of Pocahontas Had to Say About Trump Crushes Media Narrative


Reported By Martin Walsh | November 28, 2017 at 2:57pm

President Donald Trump sent the mainstream media into a frenzy on Monday when he referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” during a White House ceremony honoring a group of Native American code talkers who served during World War II.

While Warren claimed Trump had used a “racial slur,” an actual descendant of Pocahontas has previously said she doesn’t find the president’s nickname for the Massachusetts Democrat to be offensive.

During an interview in September with Sky News, Debbie “White Dove” Porreco said Trump had once asked her if it offended her when he used the term “Pocahontas” to refer to Warren.

“I know he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco said.

“He said, ‘Well does that offend you when I use that?’’ she added. “And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me.”

Porreco said she believes the real Pocahontas would have a positive view of Trump if she were still living.

“If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco said. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”

Sky News also interviewed Irene Bedard, a Native American woman who voiced Pocahontas in the 1995 animated Disney movie.

“Do I think Pocahontas would be a fan of Trump? Oh no,” Bedard said. “Misogyny and bullying and name-calling at its finest. It is not intelligent discourse.”

Following Trump’s comments, Warren appeared on MSNBC and criticized the president for using a “racial slur.”

“This was supposed to be an event to honor heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country,” Warren said, according to Real Clear Politics.

“It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can’t even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur,” she added.

The issue surrounding Warren’s claims that she is Native American first arose during her 2012 Senate run.

It was revealed that when she worked as a professor at Harvard Law School, the school tried to used her claims to prove their faculty was diverse, according to The Hill.

However, Breitbart noted in 2014 that there’s “no credible evidence that exists to support” Warren’s controversial claims of Native American ancestry.

Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces


Reported by Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large | 1:53 PM 11/23/2017

The president and first lady chose to spend part of their Thanksgiving feeding and thanking active duty members of the Armed Forces. President Trump and Melania Trump showed up to Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet to deliver meals to dozens of active Coast Guardsmen who had to work on Thanksgiving.

The First family served sandwiches, fruit, juice, cookies, muffins and sodas they had donated to sixty active duty coast guardsmen, some who were heading out to patrol soon thereafter.

According to the White House Pool report, Trump encouraged the men and women in the room:

“It is an honor to be here,” the president said.

He noted that “there is no brand that went up like the Coast Guard” during the hurricanes in Texas, the Gulf Coast and Puerto Rico. He recognized the Coast Guard for rescuing 16,000 people in Texas after Hurricane Harvey, a number that he says few know or believe.

“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.

The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.

The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.

Massive $300 Million Plant to Be Built in the United States, Trump Wins Again


Reported By Ben Marquis | November 21, 2017 at 2:42pm

President Donald Trump was elected in large part on a promise to revitalize our nation’s economy through pro-business and pro-growth policies that would produce countless new jobs for American workers. Though Congress has been dragging its feet when it comes to economy-boosting tax cuts and reform legislation, Trump’s administration has done what it can to spur job growth through cutting regulations and fostering confidence among businesses and consumers.

Fox Business reported this week that Tyson Foods, one of the biggest food companies in the world, will be building a massive new plant in Tennessee. The plant will cost an estimated $300 million to build and will provide for at least 1,500 new jobs processing more than 1.25 million chickens per week. The plant is expected to generate upwards of $150 million in additional revenue for the state.

“This project will enable us to provide even more fresh chicken to consumers across the country,” Tyson Foods president and CEO Tom Hayes said in a news release. “As one of the world’s leading protein companies, we continue to raise the world’s expectations of how much good food can do.”

The new plant, which is expected to begin operations in 2019, was initially planned as an even bigger facility in Kansas, but was ultimately shifted to Tennessee after local residents expressed opposition in Kansas.

“The (Tennessee) location is attractive to us because of the strong support we’ve received from state and local leaders, the existing industrial park and availability of labor, as well as access to feed grains produced in the region,” stated Doug Ramsey, group president of Poultry for Tyson Foods.

Meanwhile, Fox Business also noted that progress is already underway in Tennessee for construction of a massive, one million square foot factory in which LG Electronics will manufacture new washing machines. That plant is also expected to be operational in 2019.

But even though Kansas may have been passed over as the initial choice for the new Tyson chicken plant, the company still has its eye on the state for an additional expansion in the future, according to The Kansas City Star, meaning even more jobs and economic growth in the years to come.

“We have been fully aware they were considering multiple locations and planning to build more than one new complex,” explained Jackie McClaskey, Kansas’ secretary of agriculture. “We anticipate positive news in 2018 as we continue to work with multiple Kansas communities and Tyson.”

Even as plans for the one plant in Leavenworth County were placed on hold due to local opposition, other communities have expressed interest in being home to a new Tyson plant that will bring in jobs and revenue.

Nor are there any hard feelings — at least in public — at being initially passed over for a new Tyson plant, as the Kansas Department of Agriculture issued a statement congratulating both Tyson and Tennessee on working out a deal, with an obvious eye toward working together in the future.

“Consumer demand drives growth in the food and agriculture industry, and we have been aware throughout our own discussions with Tyson Foods that their expansion plans included multiple facilities in more than one state, so this announcement was not unexpected,” said department spokeswoman Heather Lansdowne.

“We look forward to continuing to work with Tyson Foods as they further evaluate expansion of their poultry business unit growth opportunities in Kansas,” she added.

Meanwhile, as American businesses expand manufacturing capacity here at home, Trump secured dozens of business deals with foreign nations such as China during his recent trip to Asia, according to CNBC.

It was estimated that, of just 37 deals struck with Chinese companies alone, roughly $250 billion will flow into the U.S. economy as a result.

Left unspecified are similar deals struck with businesses in the other nations Trump visited that could also result in tens of billions more in tax revenue initially and create an untold number of jobs.

This is what Trump was talking about when he repeatedly promised to Make America Great Again.
