After Trump, There Comes the Great Question

 

We can assume that the Democrat Party will lose the coming midterms largely due to the public lynching of Justice Kavanaugh in his confirmation hearings. The Republicans can probably count on the Democrat candidates using similar tactics against numerous Republican candidates in the most highly contended states. This will backfire on them to the extremes. It is even rather likely that President Trump will easily be reelected should, as expected, the economy continue to roll along with a future that appears bright. This will only be more likely should the Republicans experience a red tide flowing fast carrying Congress securely behind the President and his work of bolstering the economic conditions. The problem comes after President Trump for the Republicans to continue to keep the Trump support of what we call the Silent Majority or the Middle American Normals. Vice President Pence is not a highly exciting personality which would stir the base to come out and vote. By 2024, the Democrats will have a completely new and different body of candidates. They will probably run a fresh face filled with the vigor of youth which will produce the kind of excitement which brings out the younger voters, the very kind of voters which elected President Obama and before him President Clinton. The Republicans will be required to come up with a Presidential candidate who can stir the base and get the working class voters to remain steady with the Republicans. The one person we can see who would bring out such passion would be United States Ambassador Nicky Haley. In addition, Nicky Haley could be the woman to claim the treasured title of first woman President. This would be a great thing as she is an invigorating and special personality as well as a great and steady proponent of conservative thought and policy.

Here is where the problem comes, after twelve years of holding the Presidency, it will be very difficult for the Republicans to hold to power beyond, as the pendulum of politics tends to inexorably swing one way and then inevitably swings back. Finally, even should the excitement of having the first woman President, after the period of Republican hold of Congress will also become challenged, and if Ms. Haley does not have a supporting Congress, she will not be able to accomplish her preferred policy and might fall victim to the same difficulties which plagued President George H. W. Bush with having to allow the raising of taxes in order to receive the votes necessary to at least salvage part of the conservative agendas. No matter what, eventually the Democrats will take the White House and if this should come after a near record time of holding the Presidency by the Republicans, history teaches that any Democrat President, especially if this does not occur until 2032, then the Congress will also be under Democrat rule and the mainstream Republican establishment will have recovered sufficiently to have returned the Republican agenda to the unexciting middle of the road policies which has seemingly always put the base to sleep as it lacks vision. This is what led to the initial two years under President Obama where he also had an unchallengeable majority in the House of Representatives and a cloture proof sixty or greater number of Senators. This was how President Obama managed to force through Obamacare and virtually anything else they chose to pass. This is the great problem which has faced every past correction from the seemingly inexorable move leftward by American politics. This will also have a devastating effect on the rest of the world, as the United States once again will change their loyalties away from their former traditional allies, especially in the Middle East, and ally with former adversaries. But with whom will the Democrats ally?

 

The next time the Democrats capture the White House the only mystery will be whether they ally on the side of the Sunni or the Shiite base of Islam. This decision will determine whether they will support Saudi Arabia or Iran, as they are the leaders of these two variants of Islam. Whichever side is chosen, the reality will also show a new threat to traditional America. The Democrat Party is at the forefront of their new identity. This new Democrat is currently represented by such as Linda Sarsour and Keith Ellison who both have connections with CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and even potentially with Hamas. The main reasoning behind the Islamic preference for the Democrat Party is largely due to their immigration policy which favors immigrants from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region which is heavily Islamic. Further, the members of Islamic faiths are very politically conscious and realize that power only comes when you concentrate your power in one group which maximizes your influence. It currently appears that the Islamic power base will be cultivated and grown within the Democrat Party over the Republican Party. Their hard work has been rewarded with Keith Ellison being promoted into the second highest position in the party. The apparent partnering of the Democrats and Islam makes little sense until you realize they also have a common enemy, the Judeo-Christian Ethics. The problem in marrying the remainder of their seeming alliance is easily explained by the overly optimistic belief in their powers and abilities of having an ability powered by their overt belief in the rightfulness of their political agenda to overcome all obstacles if only they are able to take power. By the time the Democrats retake power in the White House, the face of Europe will be changing as the Islamic influx creates political unrest. The Democrats will promise to keep the United States out of any European war and not facing the problems which resulted from the two World Wars. This will be a very appealing platform which will likely be successful.

 

What will also have come into being is a sufficient number of Islamic voting blocks which can carry certain states for the Democrat Party. These states will be, but not limited to, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia and possibly the Carolinas. Many of these states are the decisive states necessary for carrying the Electoral College and attaining the White House. This will provide the Islamic blocks considerable power in the Democrat Party. It could be that power which may cause the Democrats to break that promise about not entering into the problems of Egypt and further into the imbroglio all but guaranteed to have worsened in the Middle East. Our best guess is that the Democrats will be beholding to Sunni Islam which will place the United States in direct conflict with Iran as well as possibly, should alliances remain as they are currently, against Russia. The wild card would be whether or not the Chinese desire getting involved or take the intelligent path of remaining aloof and out of all wars which they do not choose to start. The truth is that we are guaranteed that the future is going to be interesting if nothing else. The question is will time change Islam or will it remain set on the path of chasing after world conquest as they believe the Quran demands of them. Should the Muslim Brotherhood remain a power determining the policies and beliefs for Sunni Islam, then we can be assured that world conquest will remain their goal. They will desire to use their power within the Democrat Party in order to serve just that goal.

 

If anyone believes that the United States is in turmoil currently, just wait until the late 2020’s to the mid 2030’s and what is coming. Imagine the conflict which will arise should one party begin to try and replace the Constitution with a new set of laws which, as time passes, begin to point that they are attempting to place Sharia in place of the Constitution. The civil conflict which this could instigate would make these current altercations pale by comparison. That will be because the Christians, who are usually the quiet or at least polite, will be up in arms and become the strongest of Constitutionalists. Things might even start to become uncomfortable sufficiently for the Jews, who currently are very aligned with the Democrat Party, start to depart out of fear and a measure of survival instinct. If the rise of Islamic interests in the Democrat Party does not give the Jews reason for pause, then they are truly lost to their faith. The Muslim power base and ability to fund campaigns for the Democrats will have them a strong replacement for the Jews who will not have the numbers or financial clout to compete with the Islamic power base. Should these events take place, there will be many Jews fleeing to Israel, as Europe will no longer be a safe refuge. The real question is whether or not the Islamic powers through the Muslim Brotherhood actually take power in the United States as their well laid out plans which are no secret.

 

We may be sounding like fear-mongers, but the above link is real and what we have laid out here is also a distinct probability. We have traced this slow progression of the hate of anti-Semitism which has slowly but inexorably grown stronger and stronger in places which many claimed it could never grow. This growth has been in the far left and not the right. This is why the left and Democrat Party have become the natural home for the Islamic interests. We have witnessed the expression of Israel hatred from the far left and exemplified by Linda Sarsour and many of her activities. How all of the parties and forces in play will make sure that American political theater continues to defy predictions and make turns and spins which nobody could ever have conceived could occur is anyone’s guess. Who could have predicted that President Obama would be elected at the time that Ronald Reagan gained his reelection and it appeared that Vice President Bush would follow for a full two terms, and he lost to a relative unknown governor from Arkansas. Imagine a time when we had little knowledge of a family known as the Clintons. Of all the things which have occurred in American politics, the one prediction which came true in spades was the warning from President Eisenhower to keep a tight control over the military and its potential marriage with a defense industry which would drain funds from the American public at unstoppable rates if allowed to go loose. Well, they went loose and America reaped the misery. We are, unfortunately, not quite as true seeing as was President Eisenhower, but then he spoke of what he knew and you cannot fault him for the ensuing mess because we did not heed his warnings. What will be coming down the road to us looks to be of equal a threat to the American dream and a Constitution which has never known and potentially will never see its equal outside of the bible, the book which began the entire idea of personal freedoms and national liberties.

The Man Who Can Do No Wrong

 

Former Secretary of State John Kerry claims that he has never done anything beyond the bounds of the norm. Interestingly enough, it appears that he himself is the one who defines the norms. What an interesting combination, he writes the rules to fit his actions such that he can claim he committed no foul. It is as if he is constantly posed as below and asking, ‘Who me? I didn’t do anything because, as I see it, every former Secretary of State has dabbled in world affairs after leaving office. I didn’t do anything untoward.’ Of course not, as telling the Iranian leadership that they can simply outwait the current administration as they will be gone at the longest another six years, and even if the next President is also a Republican, just wait as eventually the Democrats will be back in control, and then everything will be just wonderful. There will be no sanctions on Iran and the trade will flow along with the dollars needed to build a nuclear arsenal rivaling the rest of the world combined and we will accept the lies coming from the AIEA because we trust that Iran has no designs on conquest. Never mind the little problems of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, the Kurds and their desires to eradicate Israel, little matters such as these are no concern of the United States. We can be great friends and not allow small insignificant items such as the fare of the world to interrupt our great, honest and straightforward relations, as we trust the leadership of Iran to never try and sell us falsehoods. We believe every word of your denials of any intention to manufacture nuclear warheads and that all your development of ballistic missiles, both continental and inter-continental is simply research for a peaceful space research and would never be used to have warheads attached to the top and be launched at the United States or any ally we actually honestly care about. And about the reach you are attempting to place around the Middle East, we can work with you on that.

As far as Israel is concerned, they have been a problem to the State Department from the very first when they ignored our advice to wait as May of 1948 just was not the right time for a new nation. We asked them to wait until the problems with the Arabs were worked to a satisfactory conclusion and they ignored our requests and went ahead recklessly. Israel, that Jewish Zionist place, has been the bane of our existence ever since and they still refuse to make the necessary sacrifices to end the standoff with the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab world. If those Israelis (read Jews) would simply listen to their betters and allow the Arabs to rule the lands and care for them, then there would be no problem and everything would be as it is supposed to be. But no, they keep harping about things such as San Remo and Treaty of Sèvres and the Mandate and United Nations Charter Article 80 claiming that the Jordan River was some magical implant supposed to be the eastern border of Israel. Why they cannot understand that there is no such thing as a natural homeland for the Jews and that such an idea was just some fairytale from the Bible which has no bearing on this modern, secular-humanist world where there are no deities and religion has been superseded by science and those things known which are truth. We understand that you see the world similarly as we do as you have told us that we can trust one another and that you completely understand our position and agree with it completely. We can work together to make a better world and you have signed onto that and promised that you have no desires to conquer the Middle East or anything else and that you are simply assisting indigenous leaders to rule that which is rightfully theirs. I, John Kerry fully understand and know that your tongue would burst into flames if you were to lie as you are sacred and religiously guided people of truth who do not even have a word for lie in your entire language, and I have studied it in depth and fully understand the Islamic ways of the religion of peace and brotherhood.

 

That is a basic insight into the machinations which go on inside the mind of Former Secretary of State John Kerry. Reality is that he is absolutely clueless and a complete fraud and has been a complete fraud his entire life. He was a hero in Viet Nam, just ask him and he will most gladly pontificate on the rumination of his extended service in country. He was there almost six whole months before collecting three Purple Hearts which gets one a free ride home. All three were requested by Lieutenant John Kerry or Captain John Kerry though some were written up by others at his behest. He almost lost a full ounce of blood from all three incidents of which his injuries were self-inflicted. This was his claim to fame then, and he marries rich women, preferably older rich women. Then he did the anti-war thing with Jane Fonda as his role model. Then he told lies about the ‘atrocities’ committed by men in his unit. Had such occurred under his command, guess who should have faced charges for dereliction of duty? That’s right, the officer in charge, John Kerry. The reality is none of the items he reported were provable and there were no reprimands on record for any of these breaches of orders. The United States military, speaking as a veteran of the United States Army, is one of the most honorable and correct acting militaries in the world. The United States military is so deeply preached and instructed in what is legal and what is not and these lessons are almost second nature such that the only Armies which might surpass the United States are Israel and Switzerland in that order. In the case of the Swiss, it might be due to their not joining any conflict for around a millennia and a half. And the Israeli Army has been examined very closely by numerous international observers which have declared the IDF to be at a level so high that it would endanger the troops of any other Western Nations if they were to adopt the Israeli methods for warning civilians, and by such also their enemies, of exactly where the next attack will be, which direction they will be approaching from, what time they can be expected and far too many other details which all are used to prepare ambushes and other traps. The IDF is the sole military which will call off an important strike on a building or area if civilians or unidentified individual are found within the strike zone. This is the reason why Hamas places women and children on the roofs of buildings where their most important manufacturing of rockets and instruments of war are produced or where their top commanders are operating. This is why the central command and control center for Hamas operations against Israel is located in a subbasement of the Gaza City Al-Shifa Hospital. Any other military in the world would have most likely risked the destruction of the Hospital in order to make an attack upon such an important and central target. The IDF simply permits the central command to operate freely against Israel while also providing them with all the vital information as to where the IDF forces will be moving next as by doing so they might save innocent lives.

Meanwhile, back to John Kerry and his new position as the logistics advisor to the Iranian Mullahs as to what is their best course to get around the stresses placed upon them by President Trump. The advice for them to simply wait President Trump out came with a condition, that the ‘Blue Wave’ is coming and the Democrats will be taking control of both houses of Congress and will be in a position to prevent any further moves by President Trump. Actually, John Kerry was talking to the Iranians as if he was assured that not only would the Democrat Party rule the Congress, but also they would have sufficient strength in the House of Representatives that they will be capable of bringing impeachment charges against President Trump over the Russia collusion and obstruction of justice and then in the Senate have the two thirds along with certain Republicans, many refer to them as RHINOs or call them Jeff Flake (who will be gone) and (coming in) Mitt Romney, to actually impeach President Trump finding him guilty of any charges. What John Kerry did not bother to explain was how this would help in any way as once this was done, the new President would be Mike Pence, a man devoted to a similar program for the United States and possibly far more conservative than President Trump could ever achieve. But the other part of Former Secretary of State John Kerry advice is that in 2020 the Democrats are assured of winning the White House, there is absolutely no doubt that this will be the result of the 2020 elections along with the strongest majorities in both houses well beyond what President Barack Obama saw in his first two years, and then everything will be set to rights. This idea of the current situation as wrong and the foreign policies of President Obama and his Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as the correct path is pretty much rejected by at least half of the United States. That is the reason that Donald Trump was elected to the White House. But the assurance that there is a ‘Blue Wave’ coming in the fall elections and that the Democrats will win the White House and have super-majorities in both houses of Congress after the 2020 election is either dreaming or perhaps they know something the rest of the world does not. Perhaps they may be correct, as there have been numerous reports of voter fraud from all regions of the nation. For a biased report from the Heritage Foundation, which we label as biased because any reporting which proves the full extent of voter fraud found is always referred to as biased. We are told by the media that there is no such thing as voter fraud. Forget the districts which had more votes cast than there are registered voters by a sizable percentage as such reports are ignoring some reality which causes such which we are just too ignorant to fathom reality.

 

President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State

President Trump Rumbling with the Deep State

 

Former Secretary of State John Kerry probably is a closer representation of the actual agendas put forth by the State Department, the one cabinet position where the underlying efforts support an agenda which currently is directly opposing that of the President. We have all heard and been given a glimpse behind the curtain revealing the can of worms which is the ‘Deep State.’ Perhaps it has been the infighting between President Trump with both the media and the bureaucracy of the ‘Deep State’ and the means by which the people of the United States have elected officials who have traded away their power to the civil service employees and their management in the name of expediency. The current form of passing bills which explain the desired result and then passing them along to the appropriate government agencies to fill in the particular through regulations which have the same effect as laws has left these nearly irreplaceable, permanent employees who actually rule the United States all but independent of the elected officials. This was where one idea from President Trump probably did more to prevent this continuing was his Executive Order requiring federal agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new regulation they implement. The unfortunate truth is that there currently exists so many of these regulations that many can be repealed as they are simply included in other regulations. The actual problem is that there exist regulations which require one to file a report on their actions while another declares those exact actions to be against another regulation. This works well when the government enforcement agencies desire squeezing somebody in order to bring other charges against ‘bigger fish.’ The first thing you do is see if the chosen victim committed such an action by taking the filed report and then prosecute them under the regulation making such actions illegal and then offer a deal if they turn over on the next person higher up. This was used against Paul Manafort particularly, as well as others, and he was convicted simply because he refused to roll over on somebody closer to the President. This is what was famously the case with Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North when he took the fall protecting everyone above him in the Iran-Contra prosecution, or should we say witch-hunt.

 

Now shall we look at the current affair with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh who was approved almost along party lines with the irony that the vote which put the Kavanaugh nomination over the top was Joe Manchin III, Democrat from West Virginia. What happened to this man was the result of inexcusable actions where those opposing his nomination, not on the grounds that he was unqualified, but because his politics was not completely in-line with theirs. Brett Kavanaugh, and even more so his wife and daughter, were taken from the chair and dragged through as much mud and accusations of misconduct bringing every sort of perversion brought forward treated as fact at the last few days of an approval after he was appointed on July 9, 2018, to replace the Supreme Court Justice for whom he had clerked and was completely backed by Justice Anthony Kennedy who was retiring leaving the vacancy. The first, and likely most serious, of these accusations was held by the opposition waiting for the final days and was brought forward and then acted upon in what has to be called hypocritical means simply in an attempt to stall the process hoping to push the final vote till beyond the election. The hope was if the final vote could be pushed beyond the midterm elections, then the ‘Blue Wave’ mentioned above would allow the opposition to bury the Kavanaugh nomination and prevent the filling of the position until after the 2020 election when we have been told the Democrats are going to win, and they will win Yuge! Of course, both of these predictions of forthcoming election results are purely imaginative. If you believe in polls, then it will completely depend on whose poll you wish to hang your hopes. Sure, there are polls which show the Democrats winning the House of Representatives by varying margins and a small number which claim they will achieve a majority sufficient to overturn Presidential vetoes allowing the Democrats to rule the United States as they please and intelligently rather than what Trump has done working on whims of the moment. Such majorities could also result in an impeachment of President Trump and should they work fast enough, impeachment of President Pence before his appointed Vice Presidential nominee is approved which would then place the Speaker of the House into the White House. Imagine who might be the speaker of the house. It might be Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Peter DeFazio, Rosa DeLauro or even Maxine Waters or Jerrold Nadler. Should the Democrats mange to receive their awaited ‘Blue Wave’ they have predicted which will allow them to save America, then whomever they choose for Speaker of the House, that person could end up in the White House by the end of March 2019.

 

On the other side of the coin, what if there is no ‘Blue Wave’ and instead there is sufficient gains by Republicans who will back President Trump allowing him to complete his agenda and fulfill the campaign promises he made plus approve his nominees to judgeships and especially the Supreme Court, then things will look considerably different. The Kavanaugh hearings and the ugly turn of events resulting from the obstructionism used by the Democrats may actually backfire on them come the midterm elections. Particularly damaging was Julie Swetnick who swore an affidavit claiming Brett Kavanaugh assisted in spiking drinks at ‘rape parties’ and then lined up to have the drugged women of which she had been one. This apparently went on at a number of parties which this woman willingly attended. Why would any woman continue to attend such parties knowing of these acts, and that is only the half of the story. The problem with Ms. Swetnick’s accusations was her walk-back of them on a television interview with NBC News’ Kate Snow where she stated she was unsure if Brett Kavanaugh was actually present and had even participated in the alleged activities. Can we say ‘Ooops?’ When you swear in an affidavit stating that somebody committed as heinous and consistent series of highly illegal and immoral acts and that you were both a witness and fell victim to these plots, the last thing you want to do is then appear on a national television interview and claim uncertainty as to whether the single most important person you have identified in your affidavit may not have actually acted as claimed or even been at most of the events. Where we come from, that is called perjury and is taken rather seriously, well, normally. We also feel that her actions could end up making the other accusation less credible just by guilt of association. Ms. Swetnick’s further problem is a separation of a couple of years from when Brett Kavanaugh would have been in High School, otherwise she was an extremely young woman, we might even say girl, to be permitted to even go to these parties and would have required transportation to and from them due to distance. Still, these accusations will haunt Brett Kavanaugh the rest of his life and may interfere with his ability to continue in his marriage as how these accusations will affect his wife remains to be seen. If he is guilty of any of these acts, then his appointment may have been a mistake, but only if you believe that people cannot change, not ever no matter what. Of course, at other times the Democrats have claimed that such things are ‘just about sex.’ The Democrats in similar circumstances have talked about second chances in life, but Brett Kavanaugh has received absolutely no breaks from the Democrats on this one. One must wonder how often Brett Kavanaugh needs to have his diapers changed as he wore diapers past his second birthday if our claims are to be considered accurate. Further, the Democrats will come out solidly and back former Secretary of State Kerry claiming he has done nothing threatening the United States and was acting with only the purest of objectives and cannot be blamed that President Trump cannot see to use this upright and proud American more to the advantage of the United States, especially when it comes to foreign relations with Iran and other nations in the Middle East. Fortunately, former Secretary of State Kerry will not be coming to Israel to work out any deals and tell the Israeli Prime Minister how to conduct affairs. He might sneak his way into Nablus, but we feel assured that Mahmoud Abbas can continue to scream and cry hoping the world will destroy Israel for him with or without the assistances of former Secretary of State Kerry.

State Department Deep State Aiding Palestinian Terrorist Payments

 

Nobody at the State Department nor those from the White House will accept the allegation that they are aiding the payment of Palestinian terrorists and their families. They will talk about the humanitarian crisis and their aid being restricted for feeding, housing and other essential aid usage by the Palestinian Authority. This was directly contradicted by a letter sent by nine Democratic members of the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee’s subcommittee on the Middle East which they sent to President Trump. Their complaint began with the fact that, “all U.S. assistance, including lifesaving humanitarian aid, has been frozen since January 2018.” Their insistence continued with the argument, “We are deeply concerned that there seems to be no information available to Members of Congress as to the nature, scope, or duration of this assistance review. We support the need for oversight of our assistance programs…. However, it is unnecessary to withhold funding while conducting this review.” After lamenting the reported humanitarian crisis in Gaza, something no amount of aid money or provisions could possibly help as all aid goes straight to Hamas or to Hamas via UNRWA, they got to the meat of their complaint with, “We have heard from many of our non-governmental organization implementing partners…who will be forced to shut down in the coming weeks if funding is not released.” Their letter demanding the White House explain their actions and lack of funding ending with, “The Committee has previously requested information in writing…about the West Bank and Gaza assistance review, and has not received detailed information in response. Therefore, we request an update as to the current status of the review…and a timeline for the conclusion of the review. We also urge the immediate release of US bilateral assistance to the West Bank and Gaza.”

 

Now how about we translate their stated positions into normal language and strip away the equivocations and speak straightly. These concerned Representatives appeared largely to be concerned about aid going to Gaza. In theory, there should not be any aid from the United States going to Gaza under any legal context, as Gaza is a terrorist entity. Gaza is ruled by Hamas, a terrorist group by almost all definitions, and they are backed by Islamic Jihad who are in the running to be as bad if not worse than Hamas. These Representatives know very well that every dollar of aid which eaches Gaza will be spent on weapons of war and infiltration tunnels into Israel for the exclusive purpose of murdering Israeli civilians and kidnapping some to hold for ransom. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have stated this as one of their main goals for the future. These Democrat Representatives also are aware that currently there is a one sided attack still being engaged by these terrorist entities in Gaza flying incendiary kites and balloons into Israel despite a supposed ceasefire agreement arranged through Egypt with American support. Finally, they are completely aware that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly insisted that the blood money for murdering Jews will continue to be paid to terrorists and their families even if it takes every last penny of aid money and that these payments are to be made as the first and foremost payments of the government before even the salaries of government workers and security forces (the PA army).

Basically, these nine Democrat Representatives who are presumably specialists on the entire situation in the Middle East are most concerned that the terrorists who desire or have murdered Jews in Israel, placing sending aid money to Hamas and the PA to pay for more terrorism as the their top priorities, placing these funds at the top of their concerns over anything else occurring in the Middle East. Funding terrorism against Israel comes before assisting the American allies who were the tip of the spear which brought down the Islamic State, the Kurds, or relieving the plight of Syrian refugees in camps along the Jordanian and Turkish borders with Syria, and above aiding the refugees from the ethnic cleansing in Myanmar crammed into refugee camps in Bangladesh. One could look at the Middle East and decide that it is a continental crisis factory where Israel is possibly the most stable area in its entirety. We can only suspect the worst concerning these representatives and their ulterior motives.

 

Further, this coming on the heels of the announced releasing of dozens of millions of dollars to the Palestinian Authority’s preventive security forces only makes the entirety of this all the more suspicious. The PA Security Forces have committed acts of terror shooting at and killing Israeli civilians, though they are usually acquitted of any charges for political reasons. PA Security Forces have opened fire at IDF soldiers and paid a high price in return. The list of PA Security Force personnel killing and attacking Israelis is rather extensive. What might be shocking is that these PA Security Force personnel who have murdered Israelis now receive close to or more than their regular salary for their act of terrorism and get these funds for as long as the PA has any funds to spend. The blood money paid under the guise of family aid for the martyrs might be the only funds which are actually paid out before Mahmoud Abbas further enriches himself and his family. Terrorists have admitted to carrying out terror acts seeking to be killed so their family would get funds and be better off. If we have knowledge of these incidents, then you know that members of Congress know all about them as well, which leads to our questioning the real motives of these representatives in demanding that funding be released and their specifying that it be made especially for Gaza and the PA Security Forces. In both cases, they are explicitly requesting that terrorists receive American aid monies. There are reasons that President Trump has been reviewing aid to the PA, and it is not to cause people to suffer, the PA and Hamas do that well enough with or without American tax money.

 

Still, it is worrying that the State Department can simply send funds under the guise that there are emergencies and they have received pleas from the PA for relief and thus released these funds. It appears that this was accomplished without any permission from the White House and definitely without the President giving any authorization. It would be interesting to have the order for this release of funds traced up the structural charts of the State Department and find out exactly who and in what position this order originated. If it was anybody other than Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, then somebody should be stood before Secretary of State Pompeo and made to give the reasons and from where they believed they had the authority for releasing these funds. Their story had better be very convincing or they should be fired. But that is the problem, Civil Service employees are next to impossible to fire. The only thing more difficult in being rid of than an employee in the United States government are cockroaches, especially those residing within the core of a nuclear power plant. This is one of the deepest problems facing the United States, a virtual army of bureaucrats answerable to nobody, overseen seldom and often without a direct chain of command, incapable of being removed from employment except in rare cases of extreme malfeasance, able to destroy people and even the policies of the President of the United States. Once at a sufficiently high level, they run their own little fiefdom, the only form of employee where if it takes five of them to do the job, easily handled by one employee in the real world, yet all five get commendations (it usually takes eight to ten or more) and yet their numbers continue to grow making them even less manageable and given even less guidance or oversight. Should any President make a policy that for every promotion given in any department not directly commanding soldiers or direct law enforcement field agents, two government workers would need to be terminated, providing they were elected to two terms, the problem might be halved.
