    TRUMP BOLDLY GOES 

    First sitting American president to visit Judaism’s holiest site

    40AA1E3500000578-4530634-It_has_been_U_S_policy_for_the_last_50_years_to_not_recognize_Ea-a-7_1495464716098

    In a bold, politically-incorrect move, Donald Trump defied the U.S. government’s 50-year-old custom of not recognizing East Jerusalem as part of Israel and became the first American president to visit the Western Wall.

    40AA187A00000578-4530634-Donald_Trump_on_Monday_became_the_first_sitting_U_S_president_to-a-8_1495464716158Wearing a navy suit, red striped tie and black kippah, Trump strode into the Western Wall Prayer Plaza in Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday, placed his hand on the stone wall and prayed for 30 seconds.

    40AA665500000578-4530634-image-a-15_1495464962211Following Jewish custom, he slipped a prayer note inside a crack between the stones.

    Barack Obama visited the Western Wall as a presidential candidate in 2008. The note he left behind was stolen and later published. ‘Lord,’ it read, ‘protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.’

    The White House has not said what Trump wrote on his own prayer note.

    The Western Wall, in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, is one of four original retaining walls King Herod built in the first century B.C. to support the Temple Mount. It is the only remaining portion of the Second Jewish Temple, which stood in Jerusalem until the Romans destroyed it in 70 A.D. as they quelled a Jewish revolt.

    Jewish Israelis see all of Jerusalem as their 3,000-year-old capital. Old Testament scripture teaches that King David made Jerusalem the capital of a unified kingdom of Israel about 1,000 years before the birth of Christ. But Palestinians, who comprise a third of modern Jerusalem’s residents, claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a yet-to-be-recognized Palestinian nation.

    DRIVE THEM OUT! 

    Trump singles out Iran as spreading “destruction and chaos” throughout the Middle East

    President Trump told 55 world leaders from Arab and other Muslim nations on Sunday to eradicate terrorists from every corner of their lives – including mosques – in a zero-tolerance approach that echoed his 2016 campaign message.

    409DBE9000000578-4527026-image-a-41_1495378925665“Drive them out!” he said in a forceful speech in the luxurious King Abdulaziz Conference Center in Riyadh. “Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy lands, and drive them out of this earth.”

    The fight against terrorism is “a battle between good and evil, not between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations,” the president said.

    First Lady Melania and First Daughter Ivanka listen as Trump delivers his speech.

    If the world doesn’t unite to fight ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas and other groups, “not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, we will be judged by God,” he said.

    “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory – piety to evil will bring you no dignity.”

    Trump singled out Iran, saying the Islamic republican is spreading “destruction and chaos” throughout the Middle East by giving terrorists “safe harbor, financial backing and the social standing needed for recruitment.”

    Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud agreed that “the Iranian regime has been the spearhead of global terrorism.”

    “If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be fully condemned. With God’s help this summit will mark the beginning of the end for those who practice terror and spread its vile creed. Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death.”

    September_11_Photo_Montage9/11 — THE SAUDI CONNECTION:
    The Saudis have long been suspected of providing the financing and safe harbor required to pull off the 9/11 terror attacks that hit New York and Washington.
    The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people.
    Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, and three had histories of employment with the oil-rich kingdom.
    At the time of the attacks in 2001, Saudi Arabia funded Muslim radicalism in mosques and charities, according to a batch of 28 recently declassified pages from the U.S. 9/11 Commission’s official report.
    Families of 800 victims and 1,500 first responders sued Saudi Arabia, alleging that officials of Saudi embassies helped hijackers Salem Al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar for more than a year before they put their plan into action.
    The officials allegedly helped them learn English and obtain credit cards and cash, and taught them how to blend in with American culture. Officials at the Saudi embassy in Germany also reportedly supported the lead hijacker Mohamed Atta. — Daily Mail

    ‘POLAND FIRST’ PM DEFIANT 

    “Poland cannot accept refugees.”

    poland-pm

    Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło continues to defy the European Union’s demand that her country, along with Hungary, begin accepting refugees by June or face sanctions.

    “I hear in Europe very often: ‘Do not connect the migration policy with terrorism,’ but it is impossible not to connect them,” Szydło said. “We must control our borders”.

    Dimitris Avramopoulos

    The populist “Poland First” PM was responding to an ultimatum laid down by European Union Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, who said, “I call on Poland and Hungary who have not relocated a single person to start doing so right now.”

    If they haven’t begun accepting refugees by the EU’s next report in June, he said, “the Commission will not hesitate to make use of its powers under the treaties and to open infringement procedures.”

    Szydło said her country will not “succumb to blackmail.”

    EU leaders ruled in September 2015 that each member country must accept asylum seekers over a two-year period to take the load off Greece and Italy, which have taken in tens of thousands from the Middle East.

    Only 14,000 of the more than 100,000 refugees from camps in Mediterranean coast countries have been relocated in the EU.images-2

    Poland, which had been assigned 6,200 refugees, has not taken in any of them, joining Austria and Hungary that also have not accepted anyone from migrant camps in Italy and Greece. Malta and Finland are the only countries to have fulfilled their obligations.

    The name’s Trump… Donald Trump 

     

    Under siege from many fronts, including a traitorous gang within his own Republican Party, President Trump is more than equal to quell the uprising. I beat my enemies to the ground, he once said. Nothing scares me.

    Ian Fleming’s image of James Bond.

    “Young, handsome, and ridiculously rich,” is how writer Otto Friedrich described Donald Trump in a 1989 profile in Time magazine.

    And a newspaper columnist wrote this: “Even if Trump is the truest, most flamboyant child of Mammon yet produced, I like his style.”

    ENDLESS GREED 

    Two-time loser wants your money — again! Launches her own super PAC after condemning them!

    images-1During a town hall meeting in Iowa in October 2015, Hillary Clinton called 501(c)(4) groups “unaccountable dark money,” citing the dreaded billionaire Koch brothers as the worst example.

    Slamming “dark money” didn’t stop her from taking $143.5 million from outside groups to help pay for her maniacal obsession to be president. In the end her epic loss to Donald Trump cost her donors $1.2 BILLION!

    Now, with her own Political Action Committee, vaguely titled ‘Onward Together,’ she has joined the ranks of the “unaccountable dark money” groups she claimed to despise.

    Clinton is now able to take unlimited amounts of “dark money” from undisclosed secret donors, thanks to the small print on the PAC’s donation page: “Contributions or gifts to Onward Together, a 501(c)(4) organization, are not tax deductible as charitable contributions or as business deductions.”Unknown-1

    “The American people rejected Hillary Clinton six months ago because she’s completely out-of-touch, untrustworthy, and embraced the failed policies of the past,” said a statement from the Republican National Committee. “If Democrats were smart, they’d realize it’s time to move onward without Hillary Clinton.”

    But they’re not smart. They will allow themselves to be suckered into yet another money-making swindle that the Clintons specialize in — the notorious Clinton Foundation being the prime example.
