Trump Pulls U.S. Out of UN Migration Deal
by Political Editors:  Donald Trump pulled the U.S. from participating in the UN Global Compact on Migration (GCM) this week, reversing the course Barack Obama set when he signed the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants in 2016. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley cited concerns over national sovereignty rights as the reason for the withdrawal, stating, “America is proud of our immigrant heritage and our long-standing moral leadership in providing support to migrant and refugee populations across the globe. No country has done more than the United States, and our generosity will continue. But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone. We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.” Haley continued, “The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.”

          Secretary of State Rex Tillerson agreed with Haley’s concerns, writing that the New York Declaration “contains a number of policy goals” that don’t comport “with U.S. law and policy.” Tillerson added, “While we will continue to engage on a number of fronts at the United Nations, in this case, we simply cannot in good faith support a process that could undermine the sovereign right of the United States to enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders.”
          Meanwhile, globalists, who pine after UN control over U.S. immigration policy among other things, responded by painting the decision as yet further evidence of what they have called Trump’s “withdrawal doctrine” supposedly leading to a growing practice of American isolationism. Leave it to the globalist elites and their group think to spin the long-accepted rights of national sovereignty and self-rule as being selfish and unjust. Look what open-borders policies have done to Europe.
          Andrew Arthur, resident fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, pointed out the biggest problem with the UN’s GCM: “The idea that we had unelected officials negotiating some sort of global migration compact is problematic… There’s plainly a huge role for the United States to play, as relates to migration. But … the fact remains that that is an issue for Congress and for the American people to decide, not for unaccountable bureaucrats.”  ~The Patriot Post

Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as

Israel's capital, orders US embassy move

by Alex Pappas

{foxnews.com} ~ President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital... saying it's time to "acknowledge the obvious" as he ordered the State Department to begin moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. The move fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives. But it could also inflame tensions across the Middle East. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality," Trump said. "It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”...  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/06/trump-officially-recogni...

Palestinian Envoy says US 

Recognition of Jerusalem is Declaring War

by jpost.com

{jpost.com} ~ US President Donald Trump would effectively be making a declaration of war if he recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital... the Palestinians' chief representative to Britain said on Wednesday. "If he says what he is intending to say about Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, it means a kiss of death to the two state solution," Manuel Hassassian said in a BBC radio interview. "He is declaring war in the Middle East, he is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims and hundreds of millions of Christians that are not going to accept the holy shrines to be totally under the hegemony of Israel," Hassassian added.. http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Palestinian-envoy-says-U...

Ahead of Jerusalem Announcement, House Passes Bill Withholding Funding Until Abbas

Stops Paying Terrorists

by PATRICK GOODENOUGH

{familysecuritymatters.org} ~ With all eyes on President Trump's expected Jerusalem policy announcement, the House of Representatives on Tuesday dealt the Palestinian Authority another potential blow... by passing legislation withholding funds until the P.A. stops paying terrorists. "If you finance or reward terrorism, you don't deserve a penny from the United States," House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said after the bipartisan bill passed by voice vote. "The Palestinian Authority should be forced to choose between its despicable practice of paying terrorists' salaries and receiving foreign aid funded by the American taxpayer." The Taylor Force Act, introduced by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) and co-sponsored by 169 lawmakers from both parties, is named for U.S. Army veteran and Vanderbilt student Taylor Force who during a visit to Israel was stabbed to death by a Palestinian in Jaffa in March last year...  http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/ahead-of-j...

Israel Makes Its Move, Unleashes 

Hell on Iranians Who Get Too Close

by TED

{conservativetribune.com} ~ The only democracy in the Middle East and America’s greatest ally, the nation of Israel... made a bold move last week against threatening forces in the region. On Friday, an airstrike was conducted against an Iranian base in Syria, Haaretz reported. As reported by PJ Media, “No one claimed responsibility for the attack, but few doubt that it was Israel sending an unmistakable message to the Iranians.” Iran has slowly been building up its military capabilities in Syria, and has been funneling weapons to its proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah.. https://conservativetribune.com/israel-makes-move-unleashes-hell-ir...

REPARATIONS & OTHER LUNACIES

by Burt Prelutsky


According to the United Nations Working Groups of Experts on People of African Descent you know, the UNWGEPAD, white Americans owe black Americans a lot of money because of slavery and other abuses over the years.

I’m not one to take anything the U.N. does or says seriously, but what about what black Americans owe white Americans? For openers, there were those 350,000 Union soldiers who lost their lives in the Civil War.

Then there are the trillions of dollars that have been expended over the past 50 years on urban blacks in the form of welfare, Affirmative Action, subsidized health care and the expenses that go together with crime and incarceration. The price tag is enormous. What’s more, the debt has mounted as recently as just now and involves people who haven’t been dead for the past 150 years.

While on the subject of the U.N., it has pretty much passed under the radar, but President Trump deserves kudos for getting us out of UNESCO. The group is led by Irina Bokova, a Bulgarian communist, so it should come as no surprise that UNESCO calls for propaganda promoting globalism, the demonization of Israel and the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ agenda, in the world’s textbooks.

It would be even better if Trump got us out of the U.N. altogether and moved our embassy to Jerusalem, thus giving the finger to Hamas and Hezbollah, but Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is an administration.

● It is often said that if a criminal defendant is innocent, he should ask that a judge hear his case; if guilty, he should demand a jury. That’s because it’s believed that the judge’s verdict will be based on the facts of the case, whereas a jury will be swayed by emotion, which makes them putty in the hands of a silver-tongued defense attorney.

But what I would want if I were guilty is for the Senate Ethics Committee to conduct the proceedings. That is why Al Franken is so anxious to have his fate determined by the Committee. The last time that august body exiled anyone from the Senate was during the Civil War. Senate Ethics? Talk about your oxymorons!

I would suggest, though, that in the future, every time Sen. Franken poses with one of those Minnesota loons, someone else takes a photo from behind, which, apparently, is where all the action is taking place.

● I believe even I am finally running out of things to say about the sexual abuse allegations, but I did want to be sure to go on record to suggest that in all such cases, the accused and the accusers should all be wired up to polygraph machines.

I know the devices aren’t infallible and I don’t believe their findings can be used in court, but they are better than nothing. It certainly beats trying to magically determine in a "he said/she said" situation which one is probably committing perjury and which one isn’t.

I find it delightfully ironic that it was just a few months ago that feminists and their media sycophants were ridiculing Mike Pence because he admitted that he never dines with a woman unless his wife is also seated at the table. They either regarded it as quaint and old-fashioned or considered it downright spooky.

But, now, don’t they find themselves wishing that some of their most beloved left-wing icons -- reprobates like Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, John Conyers, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Mark Halperin and Charlie Rose -- possessed a similar code of conduct?

While on the subject, I am tired of people claiming, depending on their politics, that when people like Weinstein, Conyers and Bill O’Reilly, pay off their accusers, we shouldn’t assume it’s a sign of guilt. That is exactly how I view it. You pay off an accuser, I have no option but to assume you’re guilty as sin.

My main objection to such payoffs is that they shouldn’t buy an individual or a company anonymity. Every time there’s a lawsuit, and they get to keep the payoff sealed, justice is being denied. If a politician or a manufacturer settles a lawsuit, we all deserve to know the particulars, and that includes the names of the plaintiffs. It's high time we put an end to non-disclosure agreements.

What’s more, I would eliminate plea bargaining and paroles from the legal system. The excuse is that without plea bargaining, which often involves calling a felony a misdemeanor, our courts would be overwhelmed. Solution: Build more courthouses and hire more judges.

The rationale for paroles is that without them, prisons would be bursting at their seams. Solution: Build more prisons and hire more guards.

After all, what does good behavior in prison mean? It means you don’t try to escape or pick a fight with guys who have the ability to beat you up and toss you into solitary. It’s not quite the same thing as good behavior outside the walls. What the rule should be is that if you’re behind bars and stupid enough to misbehave, you get time added to your sentence.

● At the rate that our Air Force jets and helicopters are crashing and that our Navy ships are colliding with other objects, I’m taking claims that we have the most powerful military in the world with a large grain of salt. Not to take anything away from the men and women in uniform, but I’m not hearing about Russian, Chinese or North Korean, ordnance self-destructing. I’m beginning to think the boasts emanating from Trump and the military brass boils down to wishful thinking.

● I know that there are millions of parents around the country who are grooming their offspring in the hopes of their growing up to be professional football players.

I’d like to call their attention to the fact that UCLA just signed Charles Edward “Chip” Kelly to a five- year, $23 million contract to coach its football team. Pretty good money, especially considering that although he had a successful four years at the University of Oregon, the NCAA found him guilty of various recruiting violations, which might help explain his success.

Although the university was hit with penalties, Kelly evaded them by becoming a professional coach, first for the Philadelphia Eagles and then the San Francisco 49ers. After failing in the pros, where violating the rules, except those involved with kneeling during the National Anthem, are harder to get away with than in the college ranks, Kelly is back in his element.

Parents can learn a lot from his example. Although $4.6 million-a-year might be chump change for some of the kneelers, Kelly isn’t about to be put out to pasture if he breaks a leg or suffers one too many concussions, and the length of his career will be measured in decades, not months or years.

● I don’t know what it’s like in other people’s houses, but my wife gets so many letters from individuals and organizations pleading for donations, I decided to start keeping track of them.

Sometimes, the come-ons involve petitions and questionnaires that pretend to be interested in her thoughts, but they all ask for money to continue their important work.

Over the past four days, she has heard from Heritage Action for America, the L.A. Regional Food Bank, the Wounded Warrior Project, two from the Conservative Caucus, UNICEF, Capt. Kevin Nicholson for the U.S. Senate, Frontier Freedom, SimpliSafe Home Security, Citizens United for the Trump Agenda, the Congressional Prayer Caucus, MADD, the National Heart Council, the American Legion, Rep. Will Hurd, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, World Help, Operation Finally Home, Project of Policy Issues Institution, Mercy Corps, PBS, Boys Town, AmVets, March for Life, Doctors Without Borders, two from the American Center for Law & Order, Phytostem Labs, Life Extension, the Freedom Prosperity Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House, the Tea Party Campaign, Service Dogs for the Blind, Disabled American Vets, AARP, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, The Seeing Eye, Immigration United, Medical Alert, Judicial Watch, the Salvation Army, U.S. Term Limits, Farm Sanctuary and Newt Gingrich. Mind you, that’s just four days worth.

I’m not suggesting that none of these outfits deserve support. I’ve even sent money to a few of them in the past. But, holy cow! How many trees had to come down just to supply the paper, and how long will it take my wife to fill up the local landfill all on her own?

My major concern, though, is that the mailman will hold us liable for his inevitable hernia.

ALERT ALERT

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
