With the exception of spending many millions- maybe a half billion- on moving the US Israel embassy to Jerusalem, and continuing to have each American family fork over several thousands of dollars ANNUALLY for welfare for Israel. Don’s all for it. Sounds like America Last. Perhaps the reason Israel does espionage in the US is to keep a lot of the Congress in line.

So all of you Trump supporters will like this. Your man's at work. Pony up! And while you are enjoying this decree, just think of how many schools, bridges and jobs would materialize if Israel stopped being a welfare queen. Why don’t we find a program that would grant citizenship and immigrant status to the Israelis and let the UN take over the holy sites, within a Palestinian state? Sort of like a religious theme park.

Israel is an artificial creation. A bad business decision, unless you have a sugar daddy like the US. This was as good of an idea as hanging up a beehive at a pinata party. It would be much cheaper if they became citizens elsewhere. Seems like a giant loophole in the America First Decree. There are many more exceptions to come-- stay tuned.

And what’s this bullshit language about DECREES anyways? Sounds like strongman, dictator talk. He also decreed an end to drugs and violence, pretending like he has a magic wand. Maybe he can find a way to monetize that like the states do with gambling and lotteries and casinos.

Then, right off the bat, Donald starts referencing the Bible and trying out some peace and God talk. What next, Preacher Don? Have you seen “Faces in the Crowd”, which is a classic narcissist story? It was featured on TCM on inaugural day. Another channel devoted the whole day to Adolf Hitler. COINCIDENCE?

Good post my friend, I'm all in favor of reminding Americans how Israel is using fear, lies and threats and intimidation against American leaders just to continue that endless four billon dollar cash flow of a broke American tax money going into the pockets of a prosperous Jewish state.

Plus they have health care as a right and we do not.

Making America first means supporting our allies.

OBama quietly j ust gave millions to the Palestinianswithout congressional support.

Obama did not want the US to thrive in the international world. He thought if we just acted "nice", other nations would "like" us, and the world would become much safer.

A strong, nationalistic America that does what is best for the US, even if it not so great for those who are not our allies, is what is needed.

If noyhing else, Trump will not be an Obama and drews "lines in the water."

Dorr: "Making America first means supporting our allies.​"

"​Ally" implies some tangible mutuality. The only thing Israel brings to the party is an empty tin cup. With allies like that we'll go broke. They remind me of the hick cousin of the Chevy Chase character in Summer Vacation. Since we are on the subject of Israel as an ally, help us out by naming three things that this "ally" has done for the US, aside from letting us use an airport so that we can meddle in other country's affairs in the region. Name three and let this misperception stand on its own merits.

"We will use American pipe to build these pipelines". The foreign pipe is all ready there, stacked 30 feet high for miles. Are they going to leave that?

Suddenly the Republican Party can afford to spend $18 Billion on a unnecessary wall.

What about education etc.

Move it to the southern border and build the wall with it. Then I guess trumkof will add a 20% tax for the imported steel on to the billing he sends to Mexico for the wall.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
