Highlights of the News



Yo, Vindman Twins, Donald John Trump is still your commander-in-chief.

ITEM 1: The Jerusalem Post reported, "Netanyahu says he and Trump will ‘make history’ this week."

The story said, "President Donald Trump’s peace plan will advance Israel’s interests, a confident Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday before boarding a plane to Washington for what he predicted would be a historic meeting with Trump.

"'I am going to Washington to face an American president who is bringing forward a plan that I believe will advance our most vital interests,' Netanyahu said."

This has been in the works for some time. The tumblers are falling into place, unlocking the door to peace.

The South China Morning Post reported, "Israel’s Interior Ministry said on Sunday that it will now allow Israelis to travel to Saudi Arabia for religious or business visits.

"The announcement is the latest sign of quiet but warming relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. It also came days before the White House is to announce its Middle East peace plan – which is expected to seek Saudi support."

The Jerusalem Post reported, "Netanyahu thanks world leaders for attending World Holocaust Forum."

The story said, "The prime minister thanked United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 'who brought forth the memory of the Holocaust victims and called to fight racism, hate and extremism.

"'The statement by Abdullah bin Zayed is a breakthrough statement in the outlook of the Arab world towards the Holocaust,' Netanyahu said.

"He went on to thank Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, the Saudi Arabian secretary general of the Muslim World League, who visited Auschwitz on Thursday. 'This is another indication of change in the attitude of Muslim bodies and, of course, of Arab countries to Israel and the Jewish truth of the Holocaust,' Netanyahu stated."

Speaking of Issa, Middle East Monitor reported, "Former Saudi minister of justice, Mohammed Bin Abdul-Karim Issa, has announced that his country will stop funding mosques in foreign countries, Arabi21.com reported on Friday."

He cited security reasons.

War hurts business. The Saudis have been on board since at least May 2017 when Air Force One became the first plane to fly direct from Riyadh to Israel. No one objected. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem also had the silent approval of the House of Saud.



Killing General سلیمانی‎, killed Iranian interest in terrorizing Israel. This means peace because Arabs love their children more than they hate Israel.

ITEM 2The Los Angeles Times reported, "By turning back caravans, Mexico is acting as Trump’s border wall, critics say."

Duh.

I have said this since June. That was the whole point when President Trump gave Mexico the choice between tariffs and cooperation.

The story said, "One year ago, Mexico’s often chaotic southern border appeared relatively orderly: Mexican authorities processed thousands of U.S.-bound migrants for humanitarian visas, allowing them to travel north legally.

"The free-transit regimen was a drastic change of policy pushed by a new Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who had denounced his predecessors for having done what he called the dirty work of Washington in deterring migrants’ northbound passage.

"But this week, López Obrador’s government greeted migrants in a more hostile fashion. Mexican National Guard troops in full riot gear blocked their way and fired tear gas canisters to disperse those seeking to breach the nation’s border with Guatemala. Hundreds of people were put on planes and buses back to Honduras, where most of the migrants in the latest caravan began their journey.

"For López Obrador, Mexico’s first avowedly leftist president in a generation and a political campaigner who pledged to welcome migrants, the last year brought a substantial shift in his view of how to handle the Central American influx.

"Detractors have accused López Obrador of bending to the Trump administration’s tactics — including threats of tariffs on goods imported from Mexico — in creating a virtual wall in Mexico’s southern boundary with Guatemala."

Tariffs rock.

ITEM 3: Ag Web reported, "EPA Replaces WOTUS with Navigable Waters Protection Rule."

The story said, "The WOTUS rule was criticized by farm groups over vague language that left farmers and landowners unable to determine whether their property was regulated by the rule. And it was criticized by President Donald Trump when he spoke to the American Farm Bureau Federation earlier this week."

And it quoted EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, who said, "The revised definition identifies four clear categories of waters that are federally regulated under the Clean Water Act: the territorial seas and traditional navigable waters, like the Atlantic Ocean and the Mississippi River; perennial and intermittent tributaries, such as College Creek, which flows to the James River near Williamsburg, Virginia; certain lakes, ponds, and impoundments, such as Children’s Lake in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania; and wetlands that are adjacent to jurisdictional waters."

I trust this will apply to strip mines as well.

ITEM 4: The Straits Times reported, "The U.S. will place more of the burden on e-commerce portals such as Amazon and Walmart.com by holding them liable for fake or illicit products that are sold by third-party sellers on their websites.

"'Under current lax interpretations of the law, e-commerce platforms face virtually no liability for their counterfeit trafficking,' Mr Peter Navarro, director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, said Friday.

"Companies like Amazon have generally been exempt from legal liability for products sold by other merchants using their online platforms. However, last year Amazon acknowledged in its annual report that it could face civil or criminal liability for unlawful activities by its sellers, flagging it as a potential risk factor for the company."

Jeff Bezos is OK with this. He has no choice.

ITEM 5: The Washington Examiner reported, "U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is prepared to go to court with two sanctuary cities, Denver, Colorado, and New York City, if they fail to provide personal information on illegal immigrants with criminal records released in each city instead of being transferred to ICE.

"We expect them to comply with subpoenas for the information, said acting ICE Director Matt Albence at a press conference in Washington on Thursday.

"'If they don’t comply, we’ll be working with DOJ to go to district court to force them to comply with the requirements,' Albence said, noting the rule in the U.S. Code that he said justified the move.

"'The individuals that fail to comply can be held in contempt,' he said. 'They can show up to court with a toothbrush because they might not be going home that night. Because they could be jailed for failure to comply with a lawful order from a judge. That’s the route we’re going.'

"ICE looks at local arrests to see if a person is illegally in the country. If he or she appears to be an illegal immigrant, the officer can request that the local law enforcement agency notify ICE before that person's release so that ICE can take custody and begin deportation proceedings. Sanctuary zones release illegal immigrants, including those with criminal convictions, after they make bail or serve time in jail without notifying ICE."

Americans voted on sanctuary cities on 8 NOV 2016.

They decided they do not want any.

ITEM 6: Breitbart News reported, "A Fox News poll shows that the 20% of Americans who rated the United States economy as excellent is up 17% from what it was during the last month of the Obama administration (December 2016) when only 35% gave it that rating.

"And that 20% is up from 14% in October, despite the Democrats ongoing impeachment effort against President Donald Trump.

"Moreover, the poll shows that 55% of American voters give the economy the highest rating in almost 20 years and they believe Trump is responsible for it."

Obama turned in a mediocre economy. President Trump made it great again. The economy is 6 times as excellent today. Small wonder Obama wanted him impeached.

ITEM 7: Reuters reported, "After Brexit-settling election, UK firms see business bounce."

The story said, "At Bruderer UK, a small firm selling metal-stamping machines from an industrial estate just north of London, business kicked into high gear right after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s big election win last month.

"Clients, including the Royal Mint which uses Bruderer equipment to make coins, at last knew for sure that Britain would quit the European Union on Jan. 31. Many have revived plans that had long been on hold."

The story also said, "Other businesses are also reporting a post-election recovery, and finance minister Sajid Javid says he is hopeful that Britain’s economic growth can eventually bounce back to its pre-financial crisis levels of nearly 3% a year.

"That would represent a victory for Britain’s Brexit supporters and possibly inspire euroskeptics within the EU."

So much for the bull-oney that Brexit would kill the economy. Since Brits voted to get out in June 2016, unemployment has dropped to a 46-year low.

Of course America's experts said electing President Trump would lead to a worldwide recession.

ITEM 8: The Washington Examiner reported, "'Respect the people of South Bend!': Buttigieg fundraiser derailed by gay protesters."

Welcome to the 21st century, where you can be homosexual AND homophobic.

ITEM 9: The Mercury News reported, "In one of his many campaign ads airing across California, presidential candidate Tom Steyer has touted the work of a nonprofit-owned bank he founded, portraying it as a counterweight to Wall Street corruption.

"But while the Oakland-based institution has a well-regarded record of making socially responsible investments, its auto loan program has left behind a long trail of defaults and lawsuits against low-income borrowers in the state, a Bay Area News Group review of financial and legal documents found.

"Beneficial State Bank — which Steyer co-founded with his wife, Kat Taylor, and served as board chairman until joining the presidential race in July 2019 — has filed lawsuits and won court judgments against 1,800 borrowers who fell behind on their payments over the past three-and-a-half years, out of more than 22,000 total loans, according to court records and data provided by bank executives."

It is called banking. Banks lend money and expect repayment with interest.

Here's an idea: make your car payments.

ITEM 10: Walter Shapiro reported, "A lunchtime town meeting in the college town of Ames, home to Iowa State, should attract a sizable crowd less than two weeks before the Iowa caucuses — especially when a former vice president, who is leading in some of the recent Iowa polls, headlines the event.

"But Joe Biden is perhaps the most confounding candidate in this Democratic race. By my charitable count, only 250 would-be caucus-goers attended his event in Ames on Tuesday."

100,000 people sought tickets for President Trump's upcoming rally on Tuesday night.

ITEM 11: Tristan Justice reported, "On Friday’s edition of CBS Evening News, Democratic presidential candidate Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders admitted that he has no idea how much his package of progressive programs would cost the American taxpayer.

"'Your agenda has promised free health care for everybody, free college tuition, and to pay off peoples’ college loans. The price tag for that is estimated to be $60 trillion dollars over ten years. Is that correct?' asked Norah O’Donnell of CBS Evening News.

"'Well look, we have political opponents…' Sanders began before being cut off and pressed on the question.

"'You don’t know how much your plan costs?' O’Donnell responded.

"'You don’t know. Nobody knows. This is impossible to predict,' Sanders conceded, leaving O’Donnell stunned."

Bernie's plans will cost nothing because he never will become president.

ITEM 12The New York Post reported, "Prince Andrew was so close to Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam Ghislaine Maxwell he would secretly let her into Buckingham Palace up to four times a day, his former police protection officer claims. Former London cop Paul Page told the Sunday Mirror that even before the Epstein scandal blew up from his child-sex conviction, Maxwell’s visits to the palace were kept hush-hush.

"'We’ve got a guest coming for Andrew but the name is not to be entered in the book,' Page claims he was told by the Palace’s property managers the first time he saw Maxwell visit in 2001."

How much do you want to bet she was not the only one let in like this?

How much do you want to bet that Andy was not the only Royal who did this?

ITEM 13: The Daily Caller reported, "Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso said Saturday that House impeachment manager Adam Schiff turned pale when President Donald Trump’s defense team played video of his Ukraine call parody.

"Barrasso joined several of his Senate colleagues in speaking to reporters after Trump’s defense team wrapped up their opening arguments — which included a video of Schiff, in a House Intelligence Committee hearing, fabricating his own version of the July 25th phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff had later dismissed the fabrication as a parody."

Schiff impeached himself with that lie. And that's no joke.

ITEM 14: The Washington Examiner reported, "West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin told reporters he thought Trump's legal team did a good job with its opening arguments.

"'A good job. I thought they did a good job. They gave us a lot to think about, and I think it gives us more reasons why the one thing that stuck in my mind is they said that there wasn't a witness that they've had so far that had direct contact with the president,' he said Saturday."

I am no fan of his but I have felt all along he will vote to acquit. He is a senator for life. He proved that in 2018. He just does not see the justification for removing President Trump.

ITEM 15: Impeachment Fever is just like Cleveland Indians Fever circa 1981.
But without the song.

ITEM 16: Breitbart News reported, "Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed Saturday he has drafted motions to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden, his youngest son Hunter Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the so-called whistle blower.

"Hawley will attempt to force a vote on the subpoenas if the Senate approves additional witnesses and documents as part of the upper chamber’s trial.

"The Missouri Republican’s pledge mirrors one made by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who earlier this month threatened to force a vote on subpoenaing Hunter Biden and the so-called whistle blower if Republicans grant the Democrats’ demand for more witnesses."

Under the rule of law, the Constitution guarantees the president the right to face his accuser and to call witnesses on his behalf.

ITEM 17: Fact check:
True.

ITEM 18: Fact check:
Nobody cares except the losers who still hate our president.

ITEM 19: Fact check:
Adam Schiff lost at Jeopardy, baby.

ITEM 20: Fact check:
Meanwhile, he does not support his child in Arkansas. He flunked the Diapers or Porsche Test.
