President Donald Trump wraps up his first year in office with two more glittering successes, one foreign and one domestic. He recognized Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and he signed the biggest tax cut since Reagan. These two shining stars are mere points of light a widening constellation of successes that include the effective end of the Obamacare mandate, the slowing of the influx of illegal aliens and the deep-sixing of bushels of anti-business regulations.
President Trump has appointed numerous federal judges to the bench who respect the constitution and who understand their proper role in the constitutional framework, including Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Trump has presided over the virtual defeat of ISIS. His election was like a dam breaking on Wall Street as businesses are now infused with a type of infectious energy that results from eight torpid years of suppression.
He is effectively cracking down on drug gangs and illegal alien criminals.
President Trump’s enemies, the left, Democrats, liberal Republicans, internationalists —both domestic and foreign — the cultural elites, have been on the wrong side on every issue.
Their investigation of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has only exposed examples of collusion between Russia and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama with the uranium one scandal and the Russian involvement in Hillary’s phony dossier against Trump revealed. Now, the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is the last hope the left has for slowing down Trump’s genuinely progressive agenda.
The goal of stopping Trump has become mired in its own scandals. The investigation has fallen out of favor with Americans according to recent polls. Nothing has been found on Trump so they flail away at people who have done things that have nothing whatsoever to do with Trump or they strong-arm low-level campaign aides over trifles.
The definition of insanity is when a person or a group of people continue to repeat the same wrong thing over and over again. That about describes liberal Democrats who are mired in the false construct of race identity politics by which they put their opponents under a microscope in search of racism.
All the while, African-American employment levels in Trump’s first year are 40 percent higher on average than they were during Obama’s previous eight years. Obama’s deportation levels were higher on average than were Trump’s during his first year.
I predict that by this time next year, President Trump will have made significant inroads in terms of winning over millennials and minorities. By then, the effects of the tax cuts and the end of the most onerous aspects of Obamacare will be felt in the paycheck — and in the job market. Success is a contagious thing and sane self-interested people naturally want to get on board with it. The liberal’s old and shopworn rhetoric, like Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., calling tax breaks "Armageddon" will start to wear thin.
Every so often a moment in politics wakes people up. This occurred when Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Phio, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, broke into a shouting match while debating the tax cut legislation. Brown, regurgitating the same lie that finds its origin in Marx decalred, "When the Republicans are in power, the first thing they want to do is give tax cuts to the rich. That's just what's— it's in their DNA."
Hatch responded, "I've been here working my whole stinking career for people who don't have a chance. And I really resent anybody saying that I'm just doing this for the rich. Give me a break, I think you guys overplay that all the time and it gets old. And frankly you ought to quit it."
Hatch also said, "What you said was not right! That's all I'm saying," Hatch said. "Now I come from the lower middle class originally. We didn't have anything. So don't spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that c**p!  . . . I like you personally very much. But I'm telling you this bull-c**p that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while. And then to do it right at the end of this is just not right."

NEWSMAX: Jewish Studies Scholars Reject Jerusalem Recognition?

Stabbing Israel in the back, 150 American Jewish Studies scholars have publicly signed a statement condemning the American administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the State of Israel.
They have mendaciously expressed “dismay at the Trump administration's decision to reverse decades of bipartisan U.S. policy by declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel.” They ignore the fact that a bipartisan Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995, an act that was overwhelmingly adopted by the Senate (93-5) and by the House (374-37).
How can these so-called Jewish Studies scholars fail to understand or acknowledge the centrality of Jerusalem in Jewish life? Have they ever cracked open a Jewish prayer book or studied Talmud? By rejecting a recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel they display a lack of understanding regarding one of the most elementary elements of Jewish policy and belief, yet they hold themselves up as Jewish Studies scholars. Their views hopefully do not formally reflect the curriculum of Jewish Studies.
They declare in their statement: “We hope one day to see a world in which all inhabitants of the land enjoy equal access to the city's cultural and material resources.” This is a dangerous and vicious statement against the State of Israel which ensures Muslims and Christians access to their respective holy sites in Jerusalem. When Jerusalem was occupied by Jordan, 1949-1967, Jews were forbidden from praying at the Western Wall. Regarding resources, Jerusalem’s Muslims and Christians are generally more prosperous and have more access to opportunity than do their counterparts in most other cities in the Middle East.
The statement goes on to regurgitate various half-truths and lies as told by pro-Palestinian Arab groups, thus further establishing where their sympathies reside in the Israel-Palestine conflict. And this is taking place as missiles intended to kill Jews are being fired into Israel from Gaza.
What motivates these scholars besides their obvious leftist worldview? I would suggest that they are driven by a poisonous and warped hatred of President Donald J. Trump, the most pro-Israel president since Harry S. Truman. If Hillary Clinton had been elected president, and if she had signed into law the same congressional bill recognizing Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel, not that she would have been inclined to do so, Jews probably would have danced the hora in front of their synagogues. We would have seen endless editorials crowing about her “courage” and how “enlightened” she is for supporting Israel.
When Israel united Jerusalem in 1967, after the Six-Day War, the Israelis made clear at that time that the city would never be divided again. This does not therefore mean that the Palestinians might not achieve some sort of an administrative condominium within the city limits as part of an autonomous entity. In that context, President Trump intends to offer peace proposals early next year. History, however, indicates that the Arabs, in their intransience, have consistently failed to take advantage of the many opportunities offered them for peaceful co-existence going back to the early part of the 20th Century.
At least Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had the courage to stand up for President Trump’s genuinely courageous act of recognizing Jerusalem. After all, Schumer voted in favor of the Jerusalem Embassy Act back in 1995 and, unlike certain other members of Congress who also voted for the act but who have now reversed themselves by condemning President Trump, he has stood by his convictions. He apparently actually meant it when he voted for the act in 1995. Hopefully he’s not getting too much hate mail from his fellow liberal Jewish constituents.

NEWSMAX: In Defense of the National Anthem

In Defense of the National Anthem

The California chapter of the NAACP is supporting a congressional resolution to replace the national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," with another national hymn. They contend that the anthem is “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon.”
Several historians contend that Francis Scott Key, the author, owned slaves and held racist views toward African-Americans. The third stanza in the anthem: "No refuge could save the hireling and slave/ From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave" appears to call for the death of slaves.
These charges deserve to be taken seriously and analyzed in the context of both the times of Francis Scott Key and the times of today. Francis Scott Key’s record on slavery is nuanced. While he came to own six slaves, as a prominent attorney he represented, pro bono, slaves seeking their freedom. In the 1830’s, Key manumitted seven slaves, hiring and paying Clem Johnson, one of his former slaves to supervise his farm. Key’s obituary noted: “So actively hostile was he to the peculiar institution that he was called 'The N***** Lawyer' .... because he often volunteered to defend the downtrodden sons and daughters of Africa. Mr. Key convinced me that slavery was wrong — radically wrong."
Key also defended slave owners seeking the return of escaped slaves. Key once noted that blacks were “a distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the greatest evil that afflicts a community.”
The War of 1812 and the British storming of Fort McHenry in Baltimore took place at a time when slavery was accepted on both sides of the Atlantic. The war took place several decades before British politician and Christian apologist William Wilberforce launched his successful movement to abolish slavery in the British colonies. While the exact meaning of Key’s reference to “hireling and slave” is not known, historians have generally viewed the term hireling to mean the invading British soldiers and slave as a specific reference to escaped black slaves who had joined the British ranks in exchange for the promise of freedom and not all black people.
The assault on "The Star-Spangled Banner" should also be viewed in the context of a wider lens than simply its connection to slavery as important as this is. There are likely other motives behind this assault that deserve an equal examination. Historically, "The Star-Spangled Banner" stands for the assertion of American sovereignty for the young nation against an invasion by the most powerful empire in the world at that time. The success of America was by no means assured as the nation struggled to face an enemy that operated from abroad and internally. The attack on the national anthem thus could be viewed as an assault on American sovereignty that finds echoes in the today’s assault on President Trump’s agenda of putting America first and making America great again.
The national anthem openly and unabashedly celebrates America’s military victory. The assault today echoes a dovish anti-military agenda that seeks to cut back on defense and denigrate veterans. The national anthem is, if nothing else, an expression of American military prowess and might.
Since World War II, the national anthem has been recited at national and at local sporting events as a tribute to the men who fought and died fighting Adolf Hitler and the men and women who have fought and who continue to fight in wars defending American freedom. Thus, even though it could be argued that the national anthem perhaps contains vestiges of racism emanating from before the Civil War, the meaning and the significance of national anthem has evolved beyond this. Indeed, the question of the racist origins of the National Anthem was virtually unknown until very recently.
Thus all Americans should consider supporting the recitation of the national anthem for what it stands for today which is an opportunity for all Americans, from all backgrounds, to come together to honor the nation that, with all its imperfections, remains the best hope on earth.
