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.
