Israel Treaties, Justice Ginsburg and General Observations of the Week

From the Blue Room Balcony after signing the historic Abraham Accords on 9/15/20. From (L-R), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, U.S. President Donald J. Trump, Bahrain Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa and U.A.E. Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan

Topic #1: President Trump hosted a treaty-signing ceremony at the White House for the leaders of Israel, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. Both agreements had been settled for a few weeks, but the signings made them official.

Thoughts and Observations:

  • The real story here isn’t the ceremony and what it means, it’s the insistence by the mainstream media to totally ignore the treaties. The blatant bias by the leftwing/mainstream media is truly remarkable. If Obama had facilitated this deal, the coverage would have over-the-top glowing and gushing.
  • During a similar ceremony in 1979 with then-President Jimmy Carter and the leaders of Egypt (Anwar Sadat) and Israel (Menachem Begin), the press coverage was non-stop and overwhelmingly positive. Details of that treaty, along with pictures of the three men joining hands, was the top story of every newspaper, news broadcast, and news magazine for weeks.
  • Similarly, consider the constant media coverage of the disastrous Iran Nuclear Agreement that was concocted by President Obama, which was signed in Vienna in 2015. The media couldn’t give that agreement enough coverage and couldn’t say enough good things about it.
  • Regarding Trump’s ceremony – for a treaty that is arguably more significant than Carter’s Egypt/Israel deal – the New York Times had heavy rain in the Pacific Northwest and the return of Big Ten Football ahead of it on their list of top stories.
  • Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize last week, and he deserves to win it for this treaty alone. They are absolutely monumental agreements, and we should expect to see a domino effect now with other Arab nations signing similar agreements with Israel. Oman? Morocco? Sudan? Saudi Arabia?  
  • The fact that Jared Kushner played such a key role in the treaties has to be part of the reason for the media’s disregard. The media has tried to portray Trump and Kushner as idiots who were out of their league, and now the media are the ones looking like morons.
  • The reason the treaties were agreed to is Trump’s commitment to playing hardball. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem, like he said he would. He took all of the focus away from the Palestinians, which were never the key to peace in the Middle East. He supported the idea that the Golan Heights should not be handed over to Syria. And he correctly identified Iran as the true regional threat, which is why the Arab nations have changed their tune. Absolutely brilliant gamesmanship by the President… well done.

Topic #2: Early in the week, #RIPJKRowling was trending on Twitter, and not because Harry Potter author JK Rowling had died. The cancel culture had come after Ms. Rowling for the grave sin of writing a book in which a transgender character was the villain. Gasp!

Thoughts and Observations:

  • Apparently the Left hasn’t figured this out yet, but bad people come in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes. Most white people are good people, but there are some bad ones. Most black people are good people, but there are some bad ones. Same with Hispanics… and gays… and Asians… and handicapped folks. People are people, and transgender individuals are people too.  Therefore, most transgender people are good people, but there are some bad ones. Tough concept, I know… but try to grasp it folks.
  • For the Left, the only identity group to which a fictional villain can belong is white/Christian/straight/men… and that would be “biological” men. Indeed there is plenty of bigotry to be witnessed in America today, and almost all of it comes from the Left. Sick, sick people.
  • Let’s hope Ms. Rowling and other feminists stand their ground on this issue. It seems clear that the transgender debate may very well serve as the unraveling of the “intersectional” alliance the Left has been attempting to form. After all, if there is no such thing as gender, how can there be feminists? Grab some popcorn, and have a seat for this one…

Topic #3: Two sheriff’s deputies were shot in Los Angeles on Monday. Both have survived, and the long-term effects of their injuries are unclear.

Thoughts and Observations:

  • Let’s all thank God that they have survived, and let’s pray for the officers and their families that their health will return/stay intact.
  • The footage was absolutely disturbing, and at the time of this writing they have yet to catch the assailant. There is a large reward for his capture, and it’s getting larger. Let’s hope they catch him soon, and the cops who catch him are afforded some “alone time” with him.
  • I am not a supporter of the death penalty because I don’t believe the government should be in the business of killing its own citizens… however… if one of these officers – God forbid – had died as a result of their injuries, and if the assailant had been executed for the crime, I would not have shed a tear. When they catch him, and whatever his punishment is, it will not be enough.

Topic #4: According to Joe Biden on CNN with Anderson Cooper (which was essentially a Biden campaign event) regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, “If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. All the people — I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.”

Thoughts and Observations:

  • Well, we’ve looked at the data and the science Joe, and yes, you are just making this up. That’s about all you can do at this point: mumble, stumble and make crap up… you’re a dunce.
  •  I can’t help but think statements like these are going to come back and bite him and other Democrats in the ass. They have politicized COVID-19 from the outset, and voters are beginning to see it.
  • Could Trump have done better? Of course he could have. But overall, he’s done a pretty good job with this pandemic.

Topic #5: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening after a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer.

Thoughts and Observations:

  • If Trump were to nominate a true conservative woman – Amy Coney Barrett, for example – the lunacy we would see from Democrats could potentially exceed what we saw with Justice Brett Kavanaugh. They would lose their collective minds, and that is why Trump must do it:
    • They had no legitimate argument for opposing Kavanaugh, and that is why they invented the stories from Christine Blasey Ford.
    • They simply hated Kavanaugh’s conservatism, and felt they had to try and destroy him.
    • They will similarly despise whomever Trump nominates to replace Ginsburg, and they will not be able to control themselves.
    • The Left claims to support women, but they don’t. They only support women who back their agenda; remember Sarah Palin, and Nikki Haley, and Candace Owens, etc. They despise conservative women more than they despise conservative men.
    • Forcing Democrats to attack a woman like Barrett – and do not doubt it, they will viciously attack her – will additionally expose them for who they are: radical, leftist idealists with neither morals nor integrity.
    • Let them show their true colors Mr. President.. let them confirm to all Americans who they truly are.
