Why are Dems and media pissed off that Trump is going to observe Jerusalem as Capital of Israel?

    Days of Media Rage about Jerusalem

    Wasn't that our CLAIMED policy for decades, but no PRESIDENT would actually do anything, because they are political cvnts?

    [​IMG]

    Through three administrations, the script has remained the same: America brokers talks in which the parties reach compromises on the issues of Jerusalem, borders, refugees, settlements, and security, at which point an agreement is signed and everyone involved receives the Nobel Peace Prize and recognition in history as consequential statesmen. Needless to say, this script hasn’t worked. There is not a single issue on which the two sides have ever come close to reaching an agreement.

    But for the peace process guild, that’s not a problem. The important thing is to keep trying, to remain guardians of the issue, and to treat alternative approaches with so much contempt and ridicule that they are never given serious consideration.

    In recognizing Jerusalem, Trump is showing that this tired script need not be followed—and that this tired guild need not be obeyed. The peace process community correctly recognizes that Trump’s announcement is not just a policy change, but an attack on their authority. And so they are desperate for it to fail, and one senses based on their breathless tweeting over the past few days that many in this community would experience enormous schadenfreude should the coming days be marked by rioting and terror. Any other outcome makes them look like fearmongers, and delegitimizes the other counsel they dispense.

    Because they know their leadership didn't have the courage to back up their promises while Trump does.

    Trump may not have fought a war, but he's fought in the trenches of business and has more fortitude than others give him credit for. He made a campaign promise, he realises that peace has not happened in 70 years and thus this decision is the right one. In short, it's not impacting any peace negotiation because both sides have not come together to get it done so far anyways.

    There is no Doubt President Donald J. Trump

    is a brilliant strategist.....

    Unlike those before him he knows that

    doing the same thing over and over and

    expecting a different result is the definition of insanity..

    They are Anti-Semites, Openly Avowed God Haters, and Allies of Radical Islam. Shocking that anyone has to even ask this question.

    I don't even care why they are pissed. At this point if the democrooks are pissed about it, then it's good policy.

    Despite being fought tooth and nail by the Democrats and the GOP Establishment, Trump is accomplishing his agenda. One piece at a time, it is all falling into place.

    His enemies are TRIGGERED!!!

    Are we looking for a war some where? any where, we keep jabbing other country's with a sharp stick. war is not good for physical health. has it been two low key with just regular amounts of killings around Israel of late?

    The point about him being a good strategist is an important one. He was thinking of 2020 the day after he was sworn in. He is new to politics, so he has had to learn along the way, and you can be sure he has learned alot since becoming president.

    What is certain is that what has been happening over the last 30 years or so in Western democracies (or Republics in your case), cannot continue if liberty is to remain. No more important nation than America in ensuring liberty lives.
