Trump: “After 52 years it is time for the US to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights”

Trump is right. The Golan Heights is indeed “of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Syrian soldiers used to stand on the heights and shoot down at Israeli farmers below. Only Israel is denied the right of conquest that has been universally recognized throughout human history: when a nation defeats an aggressor nation that started the conflict, the victorious nation is entitled to take some of the territory of the aggressor nation in order to enhance its security. President Trump deserves commendation for once again doing the right thing and rejecting the counsel of the vaunted Middle East “experts” who have gotten us into this mess.

“Trump says U.S. should recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel as Netanyahu accuses Iran of trying to set up terror network there – and prepares for White House visit Monday,” by David Martosko, Dailymail.com, March 21, 2019 (thanks to Ken):

President Donald Trump signaled on Thursday that the U.S. will soon officially recognize the contested Golan Heights region as a part of Israel.

The move comes just four days before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to visit with Trump at the White House.

Israel will see such a development as rivaling the significance of last year’s opening of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem — a unilateral White House action that now has city authorities planning to name a new subway station after the American president.

Trump said in an interview with the Fox Business Network, slated for broadcast on Friday morning, that he had ‘been thinking about doing it for a long time.’

His timing, however, coincides with a political crisis for Netanyhu, who almost certainly will face a corruption indictment following an announcement by his country’s attorney general. He is up for re-election on April 9.

Asked whether his announcement was linked to Netanyahu’s political future, Trump said, ‘No. I wouldn’t even know about that,’ and added: ‘I hear he’s doing okay.’

In a tweet, the president had declared: ‘After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!’…

LGBT magazine calls Trump “racist” for telling Iran to stop jailing and killing gays

These activists can’t get out of their own way. When AFDI ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. It was that, or risk not being invited to the best parties.

“LGBT Magazine Calls Trump ‘Racist’ For Telling Iran to Stop Killing and Jailing Gays,” by Brittany M. Hughes, MRCTV, February 20, 2019:

You just can’t make this stuff up. Because in 2019, the truth really is stranger than fiction.

Out Magazine, a pro-LGBT news publication that doubles as a gay advocacy platform, actually published a piece Wednesday claiming that it’s – stay with me here – “racist” for the Trump administration to pressure nations like Iran to decriminalize homosexuality.

I’ll restate, for the record: an openly pro-gay magazine is calling Donald Trump racist for trying to get regimes that jail and kill people for being gay to stop jailing and killing people for being gay.

Again, you can’t make this stuff up, so I’ll let Out’s Matthew Rodriguez do the talking for me. In his article, entitled, “Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic,” Rodriguez states:

There are several signs that this decision is denoted in a colonial sense of paternalism rather than any true altruism. According to the report, the decriminalization campaign is set to begin in Berlin where LGBTQ+ activists from across Europe will meet to hatch a plan that is “mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.”

That sentence alone should set off several alarm bells. First of all, the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean are huge geopolitical entities. Attitudes toward gay people differ greatly among countries and regions within those entities and attempting to gather a room of European activists on how to deal with queer issues in those regions is the definition of paternalism.

The initiative Rodriguez is referring to is a newly announced plan spearheaded by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell (who’s openly gay) to gather Western world leaders in denouncing dozens of nations including Iran for laws that criminalize or even carry the death penalty for being gay. By pressing the issue, experts have noted that Trump runs the risk of straining otherwise positive U.S. relations with certain nations like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates….

Pompeo: “Our effort is to make sure that the Iranian people get control of their capital”

“Our effort is to make sure that the Iranian people get control of their capital, and it becomes a nation that is normal and is not conducting terror campaigns that are unrivaled any place else in the world.”

It is a consummation devoutly to be wished. Let’s hope his assurance translates into real and effective assistance for genuine opponents of the Islamic regime in Iran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Donald J. Trump

“Pompeo: Trump Admin Will Help Iranian People Take ‘Control of Their Capital,’” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, January 14, 2019:

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—Following meetings with top Saudi Arabian leaders in the country’s capital on Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that one of the Trump administration’s top regional goals is to “make sure that the Iranian people get control of their capital,” a shot across the bow to a ruling regime that has spent billions to beef up its foreign military and terrorist operations.

Pompeo, speaking to reporters in Riyadh, said that the Trump administration’s primary goal is to empower the Iranian people to rein in the ruling regime, which has spent a fortune on foreign wars and terror operations as its own people suffer from a collapsing economy.

While the administration has been careful to avoid characterizing its policy as regime change, it has become clear that it does supports efforts by the Iranian people to end Tehran’s expansionist march across the region, particularly in Syria and Yemen. The administration also has stated that it opposes the hardline regime and would offer its support to opposition elements in the country.

“Our effort is to make sure that the Iranian people get control of their capital, and it becomes a nation that is normal and is not conducting terror campaigns that are unrivaled any place else in the world,” Pompeo said.

This set of priorities was raised in private meetings between Pompeo, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Asked by the Washington Free Beacon if empowering the Iranian people amounts to a sort of passive backing for regime change in Tehran, officials made clear that the United States has no interest in taking the lead in such efforts. Rather, the Trump administration is working to build a coalition of Arab and European allies who can confront the Islamic Republic.

One piece of this effort includes convincing the Iranian people that their government’s financing of terrorism and foreign wars is preventing ordinary citizens from seeing their country’s economy rebound. U.S. and European economic sanctions, officials say, have decimated the Iranian economy and helped to stir popular protests across Iran.

“The end goal is to convince the Iranian people that America is serious about empowering them and creating opportunity for the Iranian people” to confront the regime about their anger over a foreign policy that spends billions on war and terror, Pompeo said in response to questions from the Free Beacon and other news outlets….

CBS: Obama withdrawal from Afghanistan a ‘Milestone’, Trump withdrawal from Syria a ‘Retreat’

The relentless establishment media Leftist propaganda drumbeat never lets up, even for a moment. Meanwhile, the social media giants are working more energetically than ever now to silence dissenting voices, so that this propaganda is all that you hear, and the America-hating Left will win a comfortable majority in the House and Senate in the 2018 elections.

“The anti-Trump media caravan rolls on,” by Robert Knight, Washington Times, April 8, 2018:

One of the most vexing aspects of daily life is the nonstop flow of anti-Trump propaganda masquerading as news analysis. That is, unless you hate Donald Trump, as most of the media clearly do. Fake news oozes from nearly every media pore, some of it more subtle than others.

After President Trump last week announced a planned pullout of U.S. troops from Syria, CBS and NBC decried the plan, warning of bad consequences, with CBS calling the move a “retreat.” By contrast, when President Obama made clear in 2013 that he was done with the war in Afghanistan, CBS led this way:

“Eager to end a war he didn’t begin, President Obama announced in January plans to speed up the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the president will announce a milestone in the timetable on that drawdown ” What a guy. No retreat, just sound policy. This is not about the wisdom of either president’s move; it’s about the media’s instinctive reaction….

Iran decries President ‘cowboy’ Trump’s ‘ignorant hate speech’ at the United Nations

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the international Left both term honest discussion of the jihad threat and determination to counter it “hate speech.”

President Trump speaking to the United Nations.

“Iran Lashes Out at ‘Cowboy’ Trump After U.N. Speech,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 20, 2017:

Senior Iranian leaders verbally attacked President Donald Trump late Tuesday and early Wednesday following his first United Nations address, in which the U.S. president harshly criticized Iran for its support of global terror operations, according to regional reports….

In brief remarks to reporters following a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Trump said, “I have decided” on whether to designate Iran in violation of the nuclear deal, a move that would set the wheels in motion for the United States to leave the agreement and reimpose tough sanctions on Tehran.

When pressed on the issue, Trump smiled and said, “I’ll let you know what the decision is.”…

“We won’t chicken out for cowboy-like acts of Trump,” Brig. Gen. Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying on Tuesday in reaction to Trump’s U.N. speech, which singled out Iran and its nuclear program as a chief global threat.

Trump’s “remarks recount how the weak and incapable government of the U.S. has fallen in melancholy after keeping the dream of being the world’s superpower,” Jazayeri was quoted as saying in Iran’s state-controlled media….

“For facing a country whose president overtly and blatantly shouts at the lectern of the U.N. that it would ‘totally destroy’ with its military power, no option is left but to strengthen the defensive infrastructures,” he said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani offered similar remarks, telling reporters that Iran would “be victorious” in any outcome, even if Trump moves to end the nuclear agreement.

“Iran will be victorious, regardless of what happens” with the nuclear deal, Rouhani said. “If the U.S. backs out of the deal, they will suffer loss and if they remain committed, they will sow benefits. We are ready for any situation and there is no obstacle to our advance toward our objectives.”

Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, said that Iran is already moving to enhance its military capabilities and face down the United States.

“Time is now ripe for correcting the U.S. miscalculations,” Jafari was quoted as saying after Trump’s speech. “Now that the U.S. has fully displayed its nature, the government should use all its options to defend the Iranian nation’s interests.”

“Taking a decisive position against Trump is just the start and what is strategically important is that the U.S. should witness more painful responses in the actions, behavior, and decisions that Iran will take in the next few months,” he said….

“A person who takes the presidential office with deception and undemocratic behavior, will be unable to differentiate between delivering speech in the United Nations from the rough American football.” Hamid Aboutalebi, a senior Rohani [sic] aide tweeted.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the main official who helped cement the nuclear agreement, described Trump’s remarks as “ignorant hate speech” on his Twitter feed.

Trump: ‘We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism’

A great speech tonight from President Trump. It is astonishing that the President of the United States vowing to protect and defend the American people would be remotely controversial, and meet with stony silence and angry stares from one of the nation’s two major political parties (and probably inwardly from a good many establishment Republicans as well), but that is the degenerated state of affairs today.

In any case, one significant aspect of this address was that President Trump reiterated his determination to combat “radical Islamic terrorism” — a formulation is new national security adviser, H. R. McMaster, has explicitly rejected. Questions about whether Trump was retreating from his previously stated determination to discuss honestly the motivating ideology of the enemy, which is an indispensable prerequisite to defeating that enemy, were put to rest for the moment.

From President Trump’s speech before Congress tonight:

Our obligation is to serve, protect and defend the citizens of the United States. We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism.

(APPLAUSE)

According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country. We have seen the attacks at home, from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and, yes, even the World Trade Center. We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany and all over the world.

It is not compassionate, but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur.

(APPLAUSE)

Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values. We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America, and we cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists.

(APPLAUSE) That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe, and to keep those out who will do us harm.

(APPLAUSE)

As promised, I directed the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS, a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women and children of all faiths and all beliefs. We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.

(APPLAUSE)

I have also imposed new sanctions on entities and individuals who support Iran’s ballistic missile program, and reaffirmed our unbreakable alliance with the state of Israel.
