About Trump's Jerusalem Decision

By John P. Smith

President of the United States Donald Trump has fulfilled his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to the proclaimed capital of that country, Jerusalem. The expected, and almost universal, cry of foul from the mainstream media and the United Nations continues to reverberate loud and long around the world.

This is, of course, the same mainstream media (I’m looking at you CNN, MSNBC, NBC, Bloomberg) that had no problem telling everyone that the President failed to fulfill that campaign promise. Now that he has, these MSM idiots are going nuts.

So, really, nothing Trump can do will ever be reported in a positive light. The media is STILL pissed about losing the election and they just won’t let it go. The MSM has made it their mission to “force” the President out of his job, making it almost impossible for him to do anything that isn’t criticized and ridiculed as wrong. This is the same moron media that has been “investigating” the Trump/Russia connection for a year and a half now with the result that some major news outlets (read CNN, MSNBC) have had to fire journalists caught lying in their news reports. (Including one former Pulitzer Prize winner from CNN.)

They are lying. They have been for years. Now, the viewing public is catching on to it and, frankly, we’re damned tired of it. That’s why it really pisses off the MSM morons when President Trump goes to Twitter and bashes them back. They, the mainstream media juggernaut, are not accustomed to having someone fight back. They get so angry when their lies and fabrications are exposed, or at least, called out as fake.

For the Jerusalem story, here’s a little bible-based history:

Jerusalem has not “always been the capital of Israel.” During his travels, Abraham, returning from a battle, which he won, stopped by the city of ‘Salem and paid tribute, 10-percent of his spoils, to the Priest-King Melchizedek, who was ruler of the city at that time. (

However, Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for most of recorded history. That being said, moving our embassy to the city is of little consequence in the overall scheme of things. (Like throwing bricks in the Grand Canyon — really doesn’t make a whole lot of difference.) Why?

Because the Palestinians have said over and over there will be no peace as long as Israel exists. The Palestinians ensure peace CANNOT be achieved by regularly shooting rockets and mortars into Israel. (Don’t take my word for it: the last attack was just a few days ago. Look it up for yourself: ),_2017
Oddly, pro-Palestinian, war-mongering Mainstream Media is terribly reluctant to report these attacks. These attacks continue regardless of the Israeli government making concession after concession in negotiations for peace. Looking at the history of unprovoked attacks in the region, the score is about 1000 to NONE. But, it should be noted that, for some reason, Israel has won every conflict. Interesting bit of information.

Following the announcement, the United Nations Security Council voted to condemn the U.S. President’s actions as “illegal.” This was nothing more than a kangaroo court vote to embarrass the U.S. in front of her allies. In a swift reversal, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, told the Council in no uncertain terms that they were part of the problem and that the United States was “taking names.” Subsequently, the Trump administration removed some $250 million in U.S. funding to the U.N. (Read an almost-balanced report here:

“Over many years," Ambassador Haley said in her remarks to the Security Council, the United Nations has been one of the world’s "foremost centers of hostility towards Israel.”

Ambassador Haley is absolutely correct.

That being said, I’ll paraphrase humorist Dave Barry: When the world has finally burned up into a fiery ball of ash and molten rock on which only microbes can live: Those microbes living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies.
