Trump helped strengthen Israel's claim to facts

Yishai Fleisher, a spokesperson for the Hebron Jewish community globally, makes an excellent point in Newsweek why Donald Trump, as POTUS, helped Israel strenghten their claim on truthfulness:
First was Jerusalem. In 1995, Congress declared that "Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel." Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama all continued to sign a waiver of the law, thwarting the will of the American people and blocking this simple and ancient truth. But on December 6, 2017, President Trump announced U.S. recognition and began planning the relocation of the American embassy. The U.S. would no longer tolerate the absurd lie that Jerusalem was not the capital—the very heart—of Israel.

Next was the reversal of the JCPOA, to the relief of Israelis, especially Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has been the world's leading advocate against Iranian aggression. On May 8, 2018, the U.S. officially withdrew from the JCPOA and imposed crippling sanctions on Iran. The lie that the Iranian mullahs' regime was anything other than a leading sponsor of global terrorism was exposed and rejected.

Then there was the Trump administration's frontal attack on endemic anti-Israelism at the UN. The key person here was then-U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who said at AIPAC: "It cannot be the case that in an organization with 193 countries, the United Nations spends half of its time attacking only one country. We will not accept it any longer." She called out the UN's Relief Work Agency, UNRWA—"It cannot be the case that only one set of refugees throughout the world is counted in a way that causes the number to grow forever." And she lambasted the UN's world heritage arm: "UNESCO recently declared one of Judaism's holiest sites, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, as a Palestinian heritage site in need of protection from Israel. That was enough," she said. "Ten months into this administration, the United States withdrew from UNESCO." The truth that the UN is a home for rabid Israel-hate was laid bare for all to see.

Another milestone was the recognition of Jewish rights in Judea—Israel's ancestral heartland. One of my most vivid memories was hearing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announce that "the Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration's approach towards Israeli settlements. ...The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law." Pompeo subsequently declared that products coming from Jewish communities in Judea (i.e., the "West Bank") would be officially marked as "Made in Israel." The lie that Jews are foreign occupiers in Judea was finally challenged.

Then came the Taylor Force Act, which defunded the Palestinian Authority and their $303 million yearly stipends to terror perpetrators and the families of so-called "martyrs." Similarly, in 2018, President Trump also shut down the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) mission in Washington. The murderous deceptions of PA-PLO were no longer tolerated.

The Dream Team and the Grand Slam

All these lie-busting policies led to the Abraham Accords, the Trump administration's brokered détente between Israel and the Islamic states of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. This, in turn, debunked the myth that Israel had to cede land to the PLO before there could be any broader regional normalization with the Jewish state. Once the region understood that the U.S. was no longer playing both sides, but was instead simply standing up for what was right, there was an unprecedented regional realignment. As David Weinberg wrote in The Jerusalem Post, the Abraham Accords "will prove to be the [Trump] administration's ultimate foreign policy legacy."
Whether the Biden administration returns to the opposite when it comes to issues like the UN and such, it will not be so easy for them now that some of these policies were established, like the US embassy's move to Jerusalem, and the Abraham Accords. The MSM can try, but they won't be able to obscure these important achievements so easily. Topics like the Abraham Accords will hopefully win out.

Update: see also Dr. Miriam Adelson's thank you to Trump on behalf of Israel.

Trump's farewell address

Before departing the White House, Donald Trump made a final speech about the accomplishments his administration made. Along with the positives he brought about for the USA, he also brought up the accomplishments made in the middle east:
Trump said he was “especially proud to be the first President in decades who has started no new wars” and outlined some of his achievements as President, specifically mentioning the Abraham Accords and his diplomacy in the Middle East.

“We recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights,”
he noted.

“As a result of our bold diplomacy and principled realism, we achieved a series of historic peace deals in the Middle East. Nobody believed it could happen. The Abraham Accords opened the doors to a future of peace and harmony, not violence and bloodshed. It is the dawn of a new Middle East, and we are bringing our soldiers home,” added Trump.
He also noted how blacklisting and censorship are some of the worst things that can happen, alluding to how Twitter and Facebook treated him of recent in a leftist effort to demonize conservatives. It's a terrible shame that now, through fraudulent means, he was robbed of a victory he should've been eligible for, and for all we know, Donald J. Trump may be the USA's last great leader. For now, we should be very grateful to him for the good he brought around.

Conservatives ignoring corporate leftism are only ensuring further failure

Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine's written about how leftist corporatism wound up censoring conservatives in any way possible, and what could be done about it:
The battle for the corporation, unlike academia and the media, isn’t a lost cause. But it actually needs to be fought. And one of the best tools for that fight is duplicating the Left’s infrastructure for monitoring the interactions between politicians and corporate interests, and demanding that the politicians represent conservatives, not just their campaign war chests, with corporations.
That's an idea crucial to consider in many businesses. Expect a certain form of loyalty from your partners and employees, and then you can accomplish something.

Antisemitism continues to run rampant on Twitter's servers

Anti-racism activists are rightfully outraged at the levels of antisemitism still allowed on Twitter:
A group of anti-racism activists earlier this week staged a protest outside the home of Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, accusing him of failing to root out anti-Semitism and Holocaust deniers from his social media platform.

Activists from the "End Jew Hatred" movement, accused Dorsey of double standards when it comes to banning accounts that spread "misinformation" on "politics, the pandemic, or other issues".

"But when users on his platform spread harmful lies about the systematic murder of 6 million Jews, he does nothing,”
the movement said in a statement.
So in the leftist minds of the company execs, it's acceptable to get rid of Trump, yet antisemitic racists can be tolerated. But then, Twitter's fortunes on the stock market have been plummeting lately by over $5 billion, so hopefully, people are beginning to realize why it's just not worth the bother as a social media site.

Sheldon Adelson, RIP

The Jewish millionaire luxury resort and casino builder who was a staunch Israel supporter died at 87 years of age:
Sheldon Adelson, who rose from selling newspapers on Boston street corners at age 12 to one of the most successful luxury resort developers, philanthropists and political influencers of his generation, died Monday night at his home in Malibu, California. He was 87.

[...] Adelson's conservative values, love for the United States and Israel, and his desire to preserve the strongest diplomatic and cultural ties possible between the nations compelled him to embrace and support Jewish causes. He became one of America's most influential political megadonors, contributing hundreds of millions of dollars to Republican candidates and conservative PACs over the past two decades.

Adelson also was unfailingly loyal to the thousands of people he employed.

After the coronavirus pandemic forced Nevada casinos to shutter in March 2020, Adelson continued providing full pay and benefits to all 10,000 Las Vegas Sands Corp. employees and the 1,200 employees working in the resorts' 14 independently operated restaurants throughout the closure.

Sheldon Adelson was a unique combination: a philanthropist, a devout Zionist, and a true fighter for Israel, and a person who was wholeheartedly determined to safeguard the future of the Jewish people.

[...] Every young Jew knows about Taglit-Birthright, which has brought hundreds of thousands of Jews on a 10-day tour to Israel thanks to the hundreds of millions of dollars Adelson gave through his foundation.

He also played a major role in establishing new faculties and schools in Israeli academia, expanding their access to many Israelis, including a new medical school at the Ariel University of Samaria. He was also one of the main donors to Israel's leading first-responder organization Magen David Adom and the national Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem.
Here's also his wife Miriam's statement, and another article about him from Alan Dershowitz. One of Adelson's most important accomplishments was getting Jerusalem recognized as Israel's capitol, and the US embassy moved there. He did a lot of good when he was around, and for that, should be highly honored.

Condolences to family of Ashli Babbitt

The woman who was gunned down in the Capitol yesterday was Ashli Babbitt, an air force veteran who'd worked in military for 14 years and been on 4 duty tours:
The woman who was shot in the neck and killed inside the Capitol building on Wednesday afternoon has been identified as Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year veteran who served four tours with the U.S. Airforce.

Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed inside the U.S. Capitol building during protests on Wednesday, was from San Diego, California, according to KUSI News, who spoke to Babbitt’s husband on Wednesday.

The report added that Babbitt was a 14-year veteran who served four tours with the U.S. Airforce and was a high-level security officer throughout her time in service.
It's been reported that at least 3 more people died in the chaos that ensued following Mike Pence's betrayal of Donald Trump, who may end up being the USA's last good leader, if there's to continue even being a USA. Condolences to the families of all people who died from the terrible incident in D.C on Wednesday. Some of the violence was apparently caused by Antifa infiltrators, tragically enough. Again, you have to wonder, most sadly, where things are going to go at this very sad moment in history?

Update: also note how Twitter censored Trump's call for peace, and they'll probably be getting rid of him from their platform soon.

Train wreck approach in Congress leads to conservative outrage

Somehow, it doesn't surprise me that vice president Mike Pence has decided to throw his boss under the bus, by refusing to reject electoral vote results, even though he has the authority. And now, that cowardice has led to an angry conservative mob storming the Capitol:
The U.S. Capitol has descended into chaos as Trump supporters at the March to Save America clashed with police.

Several crowds stormed barricades outside Congress, where lawmakers are convening to vote on the certification of the Electoral College of the 2020 presidential election. The Library of Congress has been evacuated amid violent clashes.
Many have already penetrated the building, as of now, and there's been chaos. It's terrible, but what can one expect when nobody's willing to show courage in the face of tyranny? And now, all the incompetence has led to a defenseless woman being shot:
National File reported that one person had been shot inside the Capitol Building, and were able to confirm that a woman had been taken outside of the building on a gurney. New videos now show the young Trump supporting woman, who was unarmed, severely bleeding from the neck after reportedly being shot by the DC Police.
This is an outrage, and it's disgusting. After something like this, you know this whole mess won't go quietly into the night, and have to wonder what's going to happen at this point onwards?

Update: Gateway Pundit has more on the violent response police had towards unarmed protestors.

Now the Democrats are robbing the election in Georgia

There have already been some indicators of this, as the following American Thinker entry notes:
If you’ve been reading my posts, you know that it’s a strong (very strong) indicator of fraud when votes suddenly vanish from a candidate’s tally. There’s currently unrefuted evidence that this happened to Trump in both Georgia and Pennsylvania. Now, there’s evidence (which still needs to be corroborated) that it happened to David Perdue in his race against the Democrat nonentity, Jon Ossoff.

I’ve written twice about the vanishing vote problem (here and here). Here’s the recap: Voting is an additive process. Every ballot cast adds one vote for the candidate named on the ballot. [...]

An organization called the Data Integrity Group, made up of scientists, engineers, and data analysts, has been carefully going through election tallies in all the contested states. In the links I gave above, the group shows that votes that had accrued to Trump in both Georgia (tens of thousands) and Pennsylvania (hundreds of thousands) either vanished entirely or magically moved to Biden. To date, I’m unaware of any information contesting this finding.

When you think about it, you can understand why vanishing votes is a thing. At the end of the day, we know how many people have voted in a given precinct. For example, if it’s a small precinct with 100 people, there can be only 100 ballots.
Here's more on the Wash. Times about what's turning out to be very suspicious. And it paints a very alarming picture of where the USA is going, when people are getting their votes rendered meaningless through voter fraud, coupled with a refusal by SCOTUS to do their job defending the US laws.

On a related note, Eric Trump's made clear that Republicans who refuse to defend Donald at a most serious moment in history will lose their careers:
Trump said, “Tomorrow’s gonna tell you a lot about the country. Because I can tell you, Sean, any senator or any congressman, meaning on this side, that does not fight tomorrow — their political career is over because the MAGA movement is going nowhere. My father has created the greatest political movement in American history.”
Indeed. Those who refuse to be courageous must be voted out.

Police and army capture murderer of Esther Horgen

The Israeli police arrested an Islamic suspect in the murder of the 52-year-old Esther Horgen in Reihan forest:
A suspect in the murder of Esther Horgen, who was killed in the northern West Bank in an alleged terrorist attack, was arrested in a joint operation by the Israel Police, the IDF, and the Border Police on Thursday.

Horgen, a woman in her 50s from the northern West Bank, was found dead in the Rehan Forest of the region while she was jogging.

The breakthrough in searches after the suspect came around 24 hours after the murder due to Shin Bet intelligence. Then, police and IDF elite units were called up to the Mevo Dotan base at the Menashe regional division base.

On Thursday, at around 12 p.m., intelligence units found out that the suspect is staying at his mother’s house in the village of Toura need Jenin.

The Yamam (Israel Police National Counter Terrorism Unit) then arrived at the scene and with assistance, and guidance of intelligence drones the suspect was located on a rooftop and later apprehended.

The paratroopers special unit came to the scene after the arrest, and arrested family members and others suspected of involvement in the murder.

The suspect is a 40-year-old Palestinian with a background in security-related activity. His political affiliation isn’t clear.

Before the attack on Tuesday, the suspect crossed the security barrier in the northern West Bank.

After the arrest, he was taken to interrogation by the Shin Bet.
There's a lot of cases where family members of these Islamofascists could be involved in some way or other, and are willing to conceal them after they commit murder. And if the culprit family's house is demolished as penalty later on, they'll deserve it.

Woman found murdered in Samarian Reihan forest

A terrible incident that very possibly involved jihadism was discovered in the Samarian Reihan forest:
Israel Police are investigating the cause of death of a woman in her 50s whose body was found early Monday morning in the Reihan Forest in the northern West Bank. The police and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) are reportedly evaluating whether the murder might have been a terrorist attack.

"We wake up to a difficult and painful event in the northern Shomron," said MK Betzalel Smotrich upon hearing the news. "We send our condolences to the family of the 14th murdered woman [this year] and ask to embrace and strengthen the residents of Tal Menashe and the entire Shomron community.

"The security forces will, with God's help, get their hands on the perpetrators of this terrible attack and bring them justice," the MK concluded.

The woman, Esther Hurgan, was a resident of Tel Menashe, a town near the forest. Her body was found on the side of the road in the forest, marked by signs of violence, including to her head. Her family reported her missing on Sunday. She leaves behind her husband, Benyamin, and six children. Her youngest child celebrated his bar mitzvah just three months ago.
There's more, and it's clearer than ever from the barbarism described in the rest of the article that this was a jihadist assault on an innocent woman. The culprit must be found and should receive the death sentence.

Half-Jewish contestant at Miss France pageant attacked with anti-Semitism after revealing her father's Israeli

April Benayoum, a contestant at Miss France's current paegeant, faced antisemitic abuse after she revealed her father's nationality:
Anti-Semitism in France reared its ugly head over the weekend after a Jewish woman in the national beauty contest had to endure bullying on social media due to her background.

April Benayoum, a French woman who has Italian and Israeli roots
, won second place in the Miss France 2021 competition on Saturday, but that has not stopped racists and anti-Semites from launching incessant attacks on social media, including with anti-Semitic tweets.

Benayoum, who won Miss Provence before competing in the national contest, has described herself as Italian-Israeli because she was born to a Serbo-Croatian mother and an Israeli father.
Can anyone guess who the culprits are in the online abuse? It may not be all of them, but you can be sure some of them are adherents of the Religion of Peace, many of whom are doubtless anti-sex misogynists too. The Jerusalem Post says:
Leading French-Jewish groups, the Israeli Embassy in France, and numerous local politicians strongly condemned on Sunday this storm of antisemitic attack against the Miss France contestant.

The Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France (Crif), the umbrella organization of France’s Jewish community, called the attacks on Benayoum “vile and unacceptable!”

“All occasions appear to be good for spreading hatred of Jews and Israel,” the group added, demanding that Twitter take responsibility for what had happened."

The International League Against Racism and Antisemitism (LICRA), demanded that the social media assailants face legal consequences for turning Twitter “into an antisemitic cesspool” and urged users to report antisemitic tweets.
Let's not forget this is the same social media network that allowed a former premiere of Malaysia to post messages condoning murder of French people. Food for thought: there should be a demand the company execs abandon their leftism, seeing how it's coloring their conduct, or lack thereof.
The Israeli Embassy in France also reacted, condemning "in the strongest possible terms the surge of antisemitic and anti-Zionist hatred on social networks last night,” pledgeding “full support” for Miss [Benayoum].

[...] The winner of the competition, Normandy’s Amandine Petit, was quick to offer support for her colleague saying on Sunday morning in an interview with French broadcaster BFM TV she was "extremely disappointing.”

The TV channel on which was broadcasted the event, TF1, also condemned on his Twitter account the antisemitic attack Miss Benayoum faced, reaffirming its strong support to the contestant.

[...] In a letter to Miss France Competition Director-General, Sylvie Tellier, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, expressed outrage at the wave of Twitter attacks against April Benayoum, Miss Provence and first runner-up in Miss France 2021.

“There have been critiques of feminist organizations who consider beauty competitions as debasing to women, but this year - the Miss France centenary - will be remembered as a sick exercise in Jew-hatred,” said Samuels.
What's offensive about feminist organizations - the same kind who led to the dumbing down of the Miss America pageant a few years ago, is that they have none of the same concerns about racism, let alone actual sexism or misogyny, and if this happened in America, chances are they'd remain equally ignorant. It's a disgrace, and nobody should be funding such organizations because of that. For now, no matter what the ethnic background of Ms. Benayoum, all should stand behind her after what's happened.

Legislation passed to prevent FGM

The Senate has passed legislation to stop Female Genital Mutilation, and now it's going to Donald Trump's desk:
The Senate on Wednesday passed the Stop FGM Act that will give federal law enforcement greater tools to prosecute those who perpetrate the act, and HR 1600 is now headed to President Donald Trump’s desk.

The United States has long opposed the practice, which takes place both domestically and internationally.
One of the most important people to oppose the mainly Islamic practice is survivor Ayaan Hirsi Ali: One has to wonder, of course, where feminist movements are when it comes to subjects like this, and come to think of it, even N.O.W? Their silence can be quite telling so long as they continue with it.

It's good Congress addressed this issue, and better when Trump puts his stamp of approval on the legislation.

Trump holds a Hanukkah party at the White House

President Donald Trump's held a Hanukkah party at the White House, in another positive display of friendship there:
President Donald Trump attended a Hanukkah celebration at the White House on Wednesday, where he said he would still win the 2020 election.

“Let me just wish everybody a happy Hanukkah, and to about three of you here a merry Christmas,” the president joked to laughter from the crowd of around 100 mostly yarmulke-wearing Jewish leaders.

He then went on to address the election.

With the help of “certain very important people, if they have wisdom and if they have courage, we are going to win this election,” he said, in an apparent reference to the Supreme Court justices.
On which note, let's hope for a Hanukkah miracle. We'll definitely need it.

And since we're on the subject, thanks to Trump, a full normalization of relations was reached between Israel and Morocco. Something even the BBC's reporting. And that's good news too.

The Hamas leader in Gaza just got an illness he deserves

Another terrorist chief has just been infected with Coronavirus, in the Gaza strip:
Hamas's Gaza leader, Yahya Sinwar, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, a spokesman for the Islamist terrorist group, which runs the territory, said on Tuesday.

[...] Sinwar, a former head of Hamas's security apparatus, became the organization's Gaza leader in 2017, six years after he was freed in a prisoner swap with Israel.

Gaza has logged nearly 21,000 coronavirus cases and 111 deaths.
He and all others harboring evil positions asked for it. They may not be clear about what's actually happening there beyond this news, but if he's in serious pain, that too is another something he deserves, along with if he goes to face the highest court.

Nir Barkat: illegal PLO construction in Areas B to C must stop

Former Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat took a tour of the Amichai district, and got to see a very serious issue to be dealt with:
The Likud Zion and Jerusalem Forum hosted a tour of Amichai and area localities by Likud member and former Jerusalem Mayor MK Nir Barkat.

Barkat closely monitored the PA takeover of Area C and other areas and said for the first time that Israel could not abandon the area to the Palestinians.

"Symmetry should be applied in the open areas in both Area C and Area B. If we cannot build in the open area, the Palestinians cannot either," he declared.
I'm glad he's gone to see what's taking place, and he is too. The PLO's illegal activities cannot be allowed to continue.

Saudi prince with sordid record buying into ownership of Japanese video game company

If this news on IGN is correct, it appears a once well regarded video game publisher is selling out to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman:
The crown prince of Saudi Arabia - through his youth-focused MiSK charity - has purchased 33.3% of SNK, the developer behind King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug and more. MiSK has announced its intent to buy a total of 51% of shares, and take majority ownership.

It's a move that's already causing controversy, given that the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has previously been directly implicated in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, accused of sending an assassination hit squad into Canada, and is the de facto leader of a country repeatedly lambasted for multiple human rights abuses.

The 33.3% of SNK shares were bought for approximately $216 million, valuing the full company at around £648 million.
Aside from concerns that they could censor and obliterate whatever past players found appealing about their games for the sake of the Religion of Peace's beliefs, what's mainly offensive is the lack of moral compass on display here from SNK company executives themselves, permitting a man with such a repellent record of abuses to buy into their company...and potentially sell out to him altogether. If you care about the products of a company like SNK, you'll have to boycott them now in order to send a message. Demand that they buy back the stock they sold, among other things, and not sell ownership to such a monster and his still totalitarian Islamic regime. This is definitely a terrible day for anybody who liked to play King of Fighters, among other computer games made by SNK, in the past.

TRUMP PARDONS FLYNN!

Cross-posted here, "Thanksgiving Pardon for Retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn."

Leftists destroyed this man's life as a political vendetta. He was convicted on a "process" crime with no substantial underlying linkage to the allegations of electoral collusion with the Russians. 

Now he's received a presidential pardon, but how does someone rebuild one's life --- a life of patriotism and exemplary national service --- after a diabolical ideological smear campaign like this?

Thank goodness for President Trump. 

Background at NPR, "Trump Pardons Michael Flynn, Who Pleaded Guilty to Lying About Russia Contact, and at NYT (with fear and trepidation, lol), "Trump’s Pardon of Flynn Signals Prospect of a Wave in His Final Weeks in Office." 

And for the analysis, see Grim's Hall, "Michael Flynn Pardoned":


In a particularly grueling miscarriage of justice, retired general Michael Flynn had to be pardoned for a crime of which he was innocent. Investigated by the FBI at the behest of President Obama, who decided for some reason that Flynn was a Russian spy, Flynn was cleared of all charges as a result of the investigation. The FBI closed the case. 
He was prosecuted anyway by a politicized Department of Justice, which nevertheless failed to produce the only piece of evidence it allegedly had against him. That evidence would have been the original "302" form showing that the FBI agents who interviewed him thought that he'd lied to them -- about a case in which the FBI had already cleared him. No such 302 was ever produced, allegedly being lost, but we do have one that we happen to know was edited long after the fact by disgraced liar and political agent Peter Strzok. We know this because he discussed it in unencrypted text messages with his lover, also-married disgraced former prosecutor Lisa Page. 
After a financially ruinous prosecution in which the FBI/DOJ produced almost none of the exculpatory evidence that the law requires them to produce -- including the record of the investigation that completely cleared him on all charges -- Flynn's sorry lawyers convinced him to plead guilty. This was done in such a way that the DOJ and his sorry lawyers (perhaps motivated by one of their partners, a former Obama attorney general) made an illegal deal to hide the agreement not to prosecute Flynn's son from the judge! Not only did the judge lack the information he needed to discern whether the guilty plea was coerced, anyone against whom Flynn later might have testified as a result of the deal would have been denied their constitutional right to know of the deal so they could raise it as a defense against the value of his testimony. 
That judge -- a personal friend of Obama's, it turns out -- wasn't upset about the fact that the law firm and the DOJ conspired to hide these facts from him in violation of the law. His ire was for Flynn, whom he accused of selling out his country even though the DOJ had never even attempted to charge Flynn with that. What they charged him with was perjury for "lying" to the FBI (in the vanished 302), and a paperwork violation for which the FBI investigation had already cleared him. 
(They cleared him of the FARA violation because he had in fact filed paperwork with the government under another act, on the advice of lawyers he hired specifically to help him meet the legal reporting requirements -- thus, he had not tried to hide his lobbying work for a NATO ally, and clearly they could not s how criminal intent. DOJ knew all of that and made him plead guilty to it anyway, if he wanted them not to send his son to prison on trumped-up charges too.) 
Then we spent a year while Flynn's new lawyer, Sidney Powell, managed to get all the exculpatory information illegally hidden from him in the first place. None of it convinced the judge one bit to let Flynn withdraw the coerced guilty plea, nor to accept the DOJ's determination that it should probably actually drop those baseless charges after all. Ordered to drop the charges by the DC Court of Appeals in a three-judge ruling, the judge instead sought en banc approval to continue the case. He was granted it, provided he would dispose of the matter with "dispatch." That was now several months ago, and instead of disposing of the case he has been dragging it out towards an obvious intent to sentence Flynn in spite of his innocence. 
What this case shows is how completely distorted our system has become...
Still more.

PLO's faux-negotiator Saeb Erekat dies of Covid19

It looks like a terrorist apologist just got what he deserved:
Saeb Erekat, the Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization and the top negotiator for the Palestinian Authority, died Tuesday morning. He was 65.

"Saeb Erekat passed away in the hospital's intensive care unit," Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital said in a statement Tuesday. [...]

During the early and mid-1990s, Erekat led the PLO’s negotiating team, and was a key player in the Oslo talks.

Erekat was a frequent critic of Israel, accusing Israel of “war crimes”, “massacres”, and “genocide”.

In 2013, Erekat accused Israel of applying a policy of apartheid in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem
.
This is why nobody should feel sorry for him. He was antisemitic, condoned murder of Jews, as occurred during the mid-90s in suicide bombings, and the whole notion the Israeli government would allow him to be hospitalized under their own systems when it's the PLO themselves who should be responsible for dealing with his medical matters angered families of victims of terorrism for valid reasons. Erekat's death couldn't have come soon enough, and deserved what he got in the end.

Gal Gadot just ensured she won't have many fans back home

Israel Hayom reported that Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot has angered plenty Israelis after she praised Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, both of whom have awful records:
Israeli actress Gal Gadot sparked controversy over the weekend after congratulating Democratic candidate Joe Biden for being elected as president of the United States, a gesture that did not go over well with supporters of President Donald Trump.

[...] While Gadot's post quickly gained over a million likes, there were many who took her to task, calling her a populist and accusing her of becoming a "Hollywood liberal who has forgotten what is good for her country."

[...] Israeli rapper and right-wing activist Yoav Eliasi, commonly known by his stage name "The Shadow," also criticized the move by Gadot on both Instagram and Facebook, Sunday.

"Gal Gadot made a big mistake … In order to ensure her future in Hollywood, she congratulated Biden and his vice president [-elect Harris] (who has promised to first thing bring back the PLO's offices to the US and the funding for the Palestinian Authority) but the Americans did not take it sitting down, and sent her hundreds of comments calling hypocritical and ungrateful, and how was she not ashamed to congratulate Biden after everything Trump had done for Israel. In short – disappointing."
I think she's just ensured I won't be particularly interested in checking out most of her movies going forward, and she does seem to have a very awkward perspective on many issues. She is not a "national treasure" in this country, and her desperate attempts to appease the US left certainly says something about her personality. Best way to send her a message is to avoid all her starring roles from this point onwards, and even the Cleopatra movie she's planning doesn't sound particularly interesting compared to Liz Taylor's film.

Tea Party is back in action to protect the public's votes

As reported by Breitbart, the Tea Party Patriots are in action again as they were a decade ago to protest Democrats' efforts to rob the election from the Republicans. It's good they're back in action now, and should stand up to the thugs on the left who're destroying democracy as we know it.

Blaming the victim reigns supreme in the Muslim world

Israel National News has an op-ed by Abigail Esman about the Muslim world's reaction to the murder of teacher Samuel Paty, and just how horrific their blame-the-victim mentality truly is.

The US leftists are trying to hijack the election

With the way things are going now, it's clear that the left in the USA, in all their anti-Trump hatred, is indeed determined to steal the election for the sake of Joe Biden:
President Trump appeared in the East Room at around three a.m. on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning to express his disgust over how the votes just stopped being counted after it looked like he was winning in a number of swing states and on his way to securing a second term.

Standing before a group of supporters in the White House, Trump listed the states he needs to win, how well he was doing in them, and said, “We won states and all of a sudden, what happened to the election? It’s off. … All of a sudden everything just stopped. This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”

“We were getting ready to win the election, frankly, we did win this election.”

Trump spoke specifically about swing states where he enjoys a sizable margin with much of the vote already counted. This includes Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where it was announced the vote counting would cease, in at least a few of these states, until tomorrow.

In some cases, the counting continues but the media refuse to call the race.

But there have been reports about cities such as Philadelphia and Atlanta giving up their counting for the night. They intend to resume in the morning.
What if they're taking the time to do some meddling behind the scenes in Biden's favor? I wouldn't put it past them. Trump predicted this was bound to happen, and no doubt, the Democrats are up to something. Trump may be planning now to go to court over this. I hope he does, if that's what it takes to combat this disturbing situation.

However things turn out, though, I do know this: when you have a situation as bad as states like New York, California and Oregon have now, what with anarchy, violence, arson and vandalism going on, committed by Antifa and BLM hoodlums while authorities in those states are either lenient on the offenders, or prohibited by higher echelons from doing their job to stop them, democracy as we know it is in a very unhealthy situation, and for all we know, this whole situation could eventually lead to the collapse of those states for starters. Of course, those residents of the 3 aforementioned states who voted for the Democrats despite supposedly being disturbed by all the violence going on cannot claim they were concerned, if they remain glued to the very same party and ideology till the bitter end of time.

I hope Trump continues to fight this current situation. But even then, the USA is clearly in a very dire, unhealthy state as it is, and it could take ages to repair it.

Update: Trump's announced they'll be going to the Supreme Court:
After talking for several minutes about victories that the campaign had secured and races where the campaign believed that things were still looking good, Trump called out how vote counting had seemingly stopped in critical races that had not been called yet.

“And all of a sudden everything just stopped,” Trump said. “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”

“So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in the proper manner,”
Trump continued. “So we will be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list. OK? It’s a very sad, it’s a very sad moment.”
Definitely. That it's gotten to a point where corruption reigns horrifically on the left, along with their loss of moral compass, is simply terrible.

Also: a major error was found in Arizona's results, which strongly suggests there's rigging going on there.
