ATLANTA – Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge), Speaker Pro Tempore Jan Jones (R-Milton) and the leadership of the House Majority Caucus issue the following statement in support of Israel:
“In the last two days, more than 1,000 rockets have been fired at innocent men, women and children in Israel. The Israeli people are being attacked by Hamas terrorists bent on killing as many civilians as possible. It is appalling, and it must end.
“We send our love and prayers to our friends in Israel — a nation that remains one of the most loyal and important allies the United States has ever known. May God protect them and keep them safe.
“We call on the White House to denounce these barbaric acts of terrorism and to rally the peace-loving nations of the world in defense of Israel and its people.”

GIVING TERRORISTS THE STORE
The United States’ patience with Iran is up against some really bad behavior of late.
Last week, Iran bombed two oil tankers, one from Norway, one from Japan, all carrying oil to US allies.
They successfully shot down one US drone. They came very close to getting a rocket or two in their pockets. To his credit, Trump decided to practice strategy and now has them guessing.
Since the Shah of Iran passed in the 1970’s, we have struggled with Iran.
Our problem is not with the majority of her people, but with her radical religious leaders, and the fanatics they create.
Jimmy Carter was president when radical students took over the American Embassy, taking the staff hostage. They held the entire consulate staff for 444 days until Ronald Reagan took the presidency. The hostages were promptly let go, knowing that Reagan would never tolerate the situation.
Since Reagan, the policy has been strong financial and other sanctions against Iran.
Supposedly, the US does not negotiate with terrorists, or did we?
Ex-president Obama and John Kerry negotiated with Iran to release some of the financial sanctions that we have held against them in the horrible deal that President Trump withdrew from in May of 2018.
This agreement would have released 7 billion dollars over a period of time if they cooperate with the criteria set down by the US, et al.
Without the permission of Congress, then president Obama sent the rogue regime pallet of cash to the tune of 1.7 billion, plus 400 million in an initial settlement.
What exactly has Iran agreed to do?
According to Iran, they have really agreed to do nothing. They have agreed to dismantle nothing.
In fact, they touted a major win over the United States and her allies. They felt the deal had given in to their demands, not vice versa.
Since Iran is the leading exporter of terror and terrorists, what did the 1.7 billion dollars buy?
That kind of money seriously financed many more terror cells and terrorists, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, already known to be on Iran’s payroll. Not to mention buy more nuclear materials and scientists to enrich them to weapons grade.
Now, they are desperate for money to continue to fund their terrorist cells, while they still quest for a nuclear weapon.
New sanctions under the Trump administration are really cramping their cash flow. This week, President Trump put PERSONAL sanctions on Rouhani, Iran’s religious leader. His assets have now been frozen.
Rouhani and his followers are invested in the hatred of the US and Israel.
The people chant “Death to America.”
Isn’t it time to listen to what this nation is saying?
They lust to wipe Israel out. They threaten her daily.
Why do the European Allies cling to the original deal to give Iran everything they want without much in return? Is it just for the oil, or something more?
Germany is in Russia’s pocket for a pipeline, another deal that will most likely end in tears.
If this train wreck of an agenda thrives in Europe, they will regret it as well.
Iran is a loose cannon, and thankfully, this administration is treating it accordingly.
See What Trump has Wrought
Rumor has it that the GOP will suffer terrible losses in 2018, an off year election losses that comes as surely as Elm blight comes in January. Rumor also has it that the Democrats may survive their current malise and sweep all before them in the off year election, if the had something to offer. A return of Obamacare perhaps, or more perverts in bathrooms? How about making all of America a “sanctuary” country by law? Yes, that should do it. Good selling points.
Why is it assumed that the alternative to the GOP should be a Democrat? They have moved so far to the “Left” as to be no longer recognizable as an American institution. They are a facsimile replica of the old Communist Party USA, an odious group of Marxist-Leninist social engineers whose goal, as a political philosophy, was top down “collectivism.” Losers for over 100 years.
American’s already cast their vote for change when they elected Donald Trump despite the screaming establishment GOP’ers who fought against him and the purveyors of doom and gloom, the geriatric Democrat leadership who fear the truth of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” program could doom them forever. We now know Trump was not bombast but a man of action. We took our chances as voters sick and tired of “diversity and multiculturalism, lying and stealing, Hillary Clinton and her Money laundering foundation and, we see it’s working.
It has taken a year for the “Establishment” GOP to realize that Trump, like a bulldozer, has made changes never thought possible. That’s what Americans wanted, a fighter, not a phony group name that was scared to do anything against the supposed might of the Democrat colossus that wielded power for themselves, not Americans, like they were entitled to it.
Democrat programs have turned out to be a concoction of lies designed solely to social engineer American society into a diverse, multicultural collection of perverts, homosexuals, transgenders and other victims that would keep the Democrats in power. Americans do not want “sanctuary cities” harboring illegal criminals, protecting them from the consequences of their crimes. Americans do not want perverts sharing bathroom facilities with their little children. Americans do not want “collectivism” as their guiding principles but rather would prefer a return to some level of moral and cultural certainty based on the centuries of Judaeo-Christian moral codes that made America great.
For 2018, Trump’s successes are out in the open for all to see. Passing the major overhaul of the “Progressive Tax Plan,” including all but killing off Obamacare by eliminating the odious mandate to buy the thing, is a success that should be trumpeted daily. Let Democrat politicians try to explain why they voted against tax cuts when the rewards start flowing in simply because they didn’t like Trump? Republicans had best get on board and help Trump, not hinder him.
Americans are vaguely aware that the EPA is being reduced and its unconstitutional laws, rules and regulations are being rolled back returning to property owners control of their own property. The Dept. of Energy, under former Texas Governor Rick Perry, is likewise making changes to advance America’s role in the energy sector. Now, we’re selling energy, not buying it.
Another occurrence this past week that made the Democrats go berserk was Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel. That act alone flushed out the real enemies of the US, the third world nations in the UN enjoying the generosity of American taxpayers. Supported by Nikki Haley that could bode ill for them. Americans want out of the UN!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (21Dec17)
Israel, A Step Forward
So, Trump enacted a long ignored law passed over twenty years ago that officially recognizes Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of the state of Israel by announcing he will move the US Embassy there. Trump’s announcement set off a pre-arranged, spontaneous mass rage event by stateless people, Arab’s, who call themselves Palestinians and claim to be the legitimate occupants of the area called Palestine, that includes Israel. Will wonders never cease? It’s rarely ever mentioned that the Israelites, ethnically Semites, are also Palestinians.
Since Trump’s announcement, Leftists scream “the Peace Process is over,” that the years America spent trying to bring the Arabs and Jews together will have been wasted. Oh woe! That’s nonsense, of course! The past twenty years, or longer, of “the peace process,” was nothing more than a willful exercise in wishful thinking so far as a ‘rapprochement’ between Arabs and Jews is concerned. So, President Trump, acting on existing US law, did exactly what previous presidents, Clinton, Bush and Obama, proudly proclaimed they would do, recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of the State of Israel, but didn’t. So be it! Let the games begin.
The “Peace Process” has been a sham from the very beginning because the Arabs, as Muslims, have long held the Koranic promise to recreate the Caliphate of The Islamic state of Syria, Iraq, and the Levant (ISIL) was inviolate. The idea of allowing a Jewish State in their midst is non- negotiable and always have been. As the Quran permits, lying to Infidels until the Caliphate is at last created, is permissible. Hence, the droning years of useless Peace Talks. In other words, Islam will never recognize Israel as anything but as a place from which Jewish slaves can be harvested. In 1948, the Arab League recognized Palestine as an Arab state, to create a point of argument against infidels. The Kingdom of Jordan, the Arab state that borders Israel on the east, is also considered a part of the Levant. Two wars have failed to remove Israel.
Like all schemes of the West’s far Left Progressive liberals, the Arab-Israeli problem in the Middle-east has been their vehicle to demean the Jewish State, delegitimize the United Nations resolution of 1948 that created the State of Israel, and maintain a constant atmosphere of political ‘crisis’ that includes, not even subtly, an eventual return to the Third Reich’s scheme for the “Final Solution,” but using Islamic Forces, not SS troops (Europeans).
The planning for this eventuality has long been in the process, especially the decades the Left has spent trying to create a workable form of Marxist Socialism in the United States. Trump has thrown a monkey wrench into the whole scheme and like cheap watches, it’s flying apart
Hamas has announced it is ready to “Fight The Zionist Entity after Trump’s Declaration!” One wonders if the fever might spread to the stateless ones in places like Dearborn, Michigan and other American nests of the Islamic cancer Obama spent eight years importing into the American heartland.
So, what’s new? Arabs have clashed with Israeli forces over the West Bank and the Gaza strip for decades. Predictions of ‘unrest’ were staged within a day after President Trumps announcement, and Israel’s military has been sending additional police and combat units to the old familiar flash points in the West Bank and Gaza, in response. All this has long been Plan “B” for Hamas and Hezbollah to create their Caliphate. The Jihadists have patience and can wait and, while Israel can win a thousand wars, they only need to lose one.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (08Dec17)
President Donald J. Trump is on a foreign trip meeting with Muslims, Jews and Christians in an effort to bring peace to the Middle East. The biggest hurdle he has to cross is, who does the territory of Old Jerusalem belong to? Donald J. Trump is the first sitting President to ever visit and pray at the Western Wall. Past sitting presidents have not visited the wall in fear of it signaling that The United States believes that the territory belongs to Israel. The Western Wall is a Jewish holy site due to its connection to the Temple Mount. This wall is also referred to as the Wailing Wall, where Jews weep at the sight of the destruction of the temples. Jews do not use the term Wailing Wall and considering derogatory. It is thought of as one of the holiest sites to Muslims because it is the location of the mosque, The Dome of the Rock.
Did President Donald Trump’s visit to The Wall show that he believes that the site belongs to Israel? If so, how would he explain that to the 50 Muslim countries he met with earlier in the week? Maybe President Trump will attempt something like King Solomon did, by offering to cut the baby in half. No matter what he does the mainstream media will not report the significance of this trip and his attempt to bring peace to the Middle East. They are more interested in the Washington Post’s and New York Times’ unnamed sources and unconfirmed rumors to spend any time on a real story.
