Elections Have Consequences

UN Resolution on Israel

The incoming US Administration has serious reservations about the utility of the United Nations. I expect that there will be far less money flowing into those anti-American coffers during President Donald Trump's term in office.
Secretary of State John (Wooden head) Kerry is defending the Obama administration’s decision to effectively allow the United Nations to condemn Israeli for attempting to build more settlements in the disputed West Bank, saying the “unprecedented” effort has spawned terrorism and violence that jeopardizes lasting peace in the region. 
The United States on Friday abstained from a U.N. Security Council vote to adopt a resolution condemning the Israel’s settlement expansion, which allowed for the measure’s passage and disapproval from incoming Republican President Donald Trump. 
“Things will be different after Jan. 20,” Trump tweeted minutes after the vote.
Even though American Jews overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, both of whom never had a problem tossing Israel under the bus, the incoming Trump Administration has stalwartly backed the State of Israel and pledged to build the new US Embassy in Jerusalem. As to the UN and governments that hate the US - elections have consequences.

It might be useful for Egypt to revisit the resolution and re-think their position. The same would be true for New Zealand, which supported it. I realize that NZ is a liberal enclave, but it never hurts to make friends with people who would normally be inclined to save your bacon. Right now, they're not making friends with the Trump Administration.

But back to the United Nations - there is a belief that the US wouldn't pull out and tell them all to take a flying leap. While that may not be the initial position of the Trump Administration - things could end up like that. What good is the UN really?

Progs Misunderstand
(CNN) They [meaning all of you unwashed scum in fly-over country, bitterly clinging to God and guns] are doing much better in terms of employment and income than they were a few years ago, but the kinds of jobs they enjoy seem less stable than in the heyday of unions, with fewer benefits and worse prospects for upward mobility. With rising education and health care costs, they worry about how their kids will do. 
This issue animated the supporters of Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. The economic anxiety drove millions of voters to choose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, believing that a fundamental change to the status quo is now essential if their communities are ever going to be rebuilt.
Let's take this a point at a time.
  1. The Obama Labor Department changed the way that "unemployed" people were counted so only those actively receiving unemployment insurance are counted. There are 96,000,000 people out of the labor force, which means that they've figured a way to work under the table/off the grid or they're no longer even trying. Thus the employment statistics that Barack and friends brag about are completely gaffed to make them look good. That has not even begun to sink in inside of the Beltway but fly-over country understands it all too well.
  2. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (who has never been a Democrat) would have beat Hillary Clinton had she not been "coronated" by the Dems. The system was far more completely rigged against the old communist than it was against Donald Trump. That should have sent up warning rockets among the elitists who made up the Clinton staff, but the smug sense of entitlement to higher officer pervaded. The progs still don't get it, but there is far more that they don't understand than things that they do.
There is a wishful sense among the corrupt elite media moguls that President Trump will self-destruct and the angry white men who tilted the election for Trump will swing to support Elizabeth (Fake Indian) Warren or some other progressive icon. Magical thinking goeth before the fall, but the progs will drink their mocha-chino-espresso-lattes at $16+tip a pop inside the Washington Beltway as they prop up each other, making wild predictions that have nothing to do with facts.

Donald Trump's Qualifications

The academicians and the corrupt elite media continually rant on how unqualified Donald Trump is to be president without ever once considering that Barack (former drug dealer, community organizer) took political office without ever doing anything but be a scab on the ass of society.

Nobody who attended schools at the same time that he did recalls him present in class. The records or sealed or we'd see that he attended as a citizen of Indonesia. When Barack became a politician he didn't ever supervise anyone, never ran a business, never had to budget anything, never made a payroll, never built anything, and golfed a mediocre game.

Those same academicians and media acolytes point to Barack's election as "transformative" because he was 1/2 black, raised by a white mother (his absentee father was little more than a sperm donor) and white grandparents. How do you possibly square Barack's absence of qualifications in light of President Donald Trump who took a million dollars and turned it into a ten billion dollar empire?

    United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 was adopted under non-binding Chapter VI of the United Nations Charter on 23 December 2016 and concerns the Israeli settlements in "Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, including East-Jerusalem".

    While the resolution did not include any sanction or coercive measure, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz it "may have serious ramifications for Israel in general and specifically for the settlement enterprise" in the medium-to-long term. In response to the resolution, the government of Israel retaliated with a series of diplomatic actions against members of the Security Council, including recalling its ambassadors, summoning member countries' ambassadors, cancellations of visits, and cancellation of aid.

    The draft was originally prepared by Egypt. However, on 22 December, United States President-elect Donald Trump called on Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to withdraw the proposal and Egypt withdrew the nomination after what its ambassador called an "intense pressure". Then on 23 December, the draft was taken up and proposed again by Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela. The resolution was passed 14 to 0; all members voted for the resolution except for the United States, which abstained

    1. It can't be their love of the Palestinians, because, quite honestly, there is so little to love there. They must just hate Israel - the way that Barack does.

    2. Yeah, but they love the "foreign aid" we give them, and if you pay the piper, he gets to call the tunes...

    3. We need to revisit foreign aid for nations who repeatedly oppose us and throw it in our faces. I have no doubt that's on the Trump agenda.

  2. That is something that I don't understand. Every election Jewish Americans, who should be conservative and Pro-Israel, vote democrat. And every year America gets closer to communism.

    Well, until this last election. But I bet most Jewish Americans still voted democrat. It was those fly-over deplorables that finally had enough.

    I look forward to the US Embassy being rebuild in Jerusalem. Even if it only remains as long as Trump is in office. Perhaps that will be enough.

    1. American Jews really loved Hillary and Barack. I have no idea why. Perhaps it's their disconnect with Israel - because Israelis hated both of them.

    2. George Soros is a Jew - and he was a uniform wearing Nazi during WW2 where he made a handsome living by betraying other Jews. It's history and well documented. All the same, American Jews love him.

  3. I don't think Jews understand Jews. I know I don't. Still, they have survived for 4,000 years, bitching, moaning, and arguing all the way.

    Muslim Arabs living within the borders of Israel have more freedom than in Arab countries yet supposedly want their own "Palestinian State". Like the Palestinian Authority is a sterling example of governance.

    Hope Trump cuts off most UN money. Along with that, severely ration the number of people from each country who receive diplomatic immunity.

    1. Funny -- and true. Chinese food (though not kosher) is traditional for many Jews because the Chinese are the only ones with open restaurants on Christmas Eve in NY.

  5. January 20th, 2017 can't come soon enough for me. No more of the jug eared, moslem-loving, America-hating kenyan doubling down on stupid policies and leading from behind.

  6. I agree with Linda. And Obama, what a bust. Has there been a worse President?

    1. Martin Van Buren sucked. So did Jimmy Carter. But Carter was an American (flawed, but American), who served his country in the world's finest Navy. Barack is a sideshow barker whose reputation is built around the fact that his mother had a black sperm donor - and that's progressive.

  7. Ooh ooh ... I know I know, the answer to that last question. Easy, because you'd be a liberal.

    1. Communism believes at its core that all solutions must be arrived at by the government. The only remaining vestiges of that can be found in North Korea, Myanmar and Cuba (China pretends at it but they're rampant capitalists) -- and in the hearts of university professors and wing nuts like Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama.

      Obama came by it honestly. His Mommy, daddy and grandparents were all communists. His nanny was a tranny - so he may have come by that preference (witness Michelle) in the same way?
