      The Trump Agenda

      What Are We Missing?

      U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were among those

      attending a reception in Jerusalem ahead of the moving of the U.S. embassy.

      President Donald Trump will not be on hand for the embassy’s opening.

      I can't shake the feeling that there's a part of the Trumpist agenda we're not fully grasping. It seems that lately we're confronted by decisions, statements and actions that simply defy our understanding and we therefore dismiss as random acts of people who have no idea what they're doing.

      But what if they know exactly what they're doing while we're constantly being distracted by a steady stream of "shiny objects"?

      Why move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem now? That's a can that's been kicked down the road by four presidents. It was undoubtedly and unnecessarily provocative, just days after blowing up the Iran nuclear deal, and then selecting the most controversial figure imaginable, Christian evangelical extremist Rev. Robert Jeffress, to sanctify the occasion.

      WTF?


      Robert Jeffress says “you can’t be saved by being a Jew,“ and “Mormonism

      is a heresy from the pit of hell.” He’s said the same about Islam. Such a

      religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the

      United States Embassy in Jerusalem.


      Prior to the ceremony Jeffress told Fox News, “I’m going to be thanking God for the strong leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu, who is absolutely determined to protect Israel. And I’m also going to be thanking God for our President Donald Trump, who had the courage to do what no other U.S. president has done, and that is to officially recognize Jerusalem and to move the embassy.”

      The 250-person U.S. delegation include White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
      Ambassadors from only four European Union countries (Austria, Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic) attended a reception on Sunday, while representatives from other nations boycotted in protest.

      Fox News host "Judge" Janine Pirro proclaimed that Trump had fulfilled biblical prophesy:

      ″[Trump], like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the gods worshipped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people finally deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.”

      The almost immediate worldwide condemnation included a conclusion that the United States had declared that we could no longer be considered an "honest broker" in the efforts to achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The subtler message is that we have adopted Israel's aggressive position against Iran and are prepared go to war in their support.
      WTF????

          I think that you are correct and that there is a concerted effort to turn our country into a theocratic dictatorship. The only way to stop their agenda is to resist and it will take 2/3 of our voting population to rid our coubtry of the Trump administration

              It has been apparent to many, for years now, that Israel is the tale that wags the dog. The US funds, arms and fights Israel’s wars for it, excuses, defends and counters actions that, ironically, resulted in the execution of German Military personnel after WW2; why is that, how is that? Time for the UN, though the US and it’s vassals would oppose, to use Chapter 7, UN, to counter this ongoing slaughter of the Palestinians whose only crime is that they would resist the violent appropriation of their land.

                  My sentiments are in general with Israel - but I'm having real difficulty supporting what's happened in the last 48 hours. By unambiguously siding with Israel, Trump has killed any hopes for a "two-state solution", has negated our role as "honest broker" for mideast peace, and has virtually guaranteed further violence, possibly war.

                  Netanyahu clearly wants the U.S. to go to war with Israel against Iran, Hezbollah, and all other Islamist terror cells, amid talk of "settle all scores".

                  This is very destabilizing and dangerous, the perfect "rally 'round our president" distraction Trump is looking for as the Mueller investigation closes in.

                          Netanyahu made a serious error when dealing with Obama by allowing Israel relations to become a partisan issue. Huge mistake.


                          Hopefully a new Israeli leadership can emerge that will work to repair that damage.


                          As for the Evangelical support of Israel - it's a very uncomfortable truth in Israel that it needs the support but can't stand the ideology. Evangelicalism doesn't understand and is not consistent with Zionism.


                          Zionism says Israel has to exist with a Jewish army as a pragmatic method of Liberation from the cycle of violence and oppression otherwise suffered by the community. Evangelicalism says Israel has to exist by Divine intervention so that all the Jews can be killed. VERY STRANGE BEDFELLOWS
