You will never see a look like this in the eyes of a politician. The truth is that our pets respect us, while our leaders do not. It could even be said that our leaders hold us in utter contempt. In fact, the only time you will see a look like this on the face of a politician is when he or she is speaking at an AIPAC conference–but even then, the look won’t be genuine. There is nothing but falsity about these people.
A bit earlier I put up a post about the ballyhoo going on in Washington now over the firing of FBI Director James Comey. The mainstream media reports coming out today suggest an almost crazed obsession with Russia, but as I noted in my earlier post, you “will not hear any of them acknowledge that whatever influence Russia has upon US elections it is minuscule compared with that wielded by Israel.”
That is of course true. And in addition, a couple of other things are also worth noting. One is that the uproar over Comey’s firing comes just as Trump has made efforts to renew dialogue with Russia. In fact, the president held a meeting just this morning with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:
Another curious aspect is that the Trump administration apparently has just informed Israel that the US will not be moving its embassy to Jerusalem. The following was reported today by the Jewish Chronicle:
Donald Trump has decided not to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to Israeli media reports.
Mr Trump promised during his election campaign to relocate the embassy to Jerusalem, which Israel considers its capital. At the Aipac conference in March 2016, he told an audience of thousands of pro-Israel activists that if he were to be elected, “we will transfer the US embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem”.
However, according to NRG, a website affiliated with Israel’s Maariv newspaper, Mr Trump has changed his mind within the last few days, and has informed Benjamin Netanyahu of his decision. Mr Netanyahu has been vocal in encouraging the US to relocate its embassy, telling his cabinet in January that “our position has always been that the US embassy should be in Jerusalem”.
Although Israel considers Jerusalem its capital, most other countries who have diplomatic relationships with it have taken an ambiguous stance, with most having their embassies in Tel Aviv. Although the US Congress passed a law in 1995 that an undivided Jerusalem should be considered Israel’s capital and that the US embassy should be moved to the city no later than May 1999, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama all made use of a clause in the bill which allowed them to exercise a regular six-monthly veto over the embassy move. It now appears that President Trump has decided to follow suit.
Mr Trump’s pick as the new US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, has made no secret of his belief that an undivided Jerusalem should be considered Israel’s capital and that the US embassy should be moved there. However, earlier this week the Israeli Foreign Ministry was misled into retweeting a message from a fake Twitter account purporting to be that of Mr Friedman, which said that the ambassador was hoping to “work out of Jerusalem very soon”. The US embassy in Israel and the Israeli embassy in Washington subsequently informed the Ministry that the account was fake.
Do the overtures to Russia and the decision on the embassy play a factor in the renewed attacks on Trump we’re seeing now? Possibly, although hard to say for sure, and I certainly wouldn’t bet a million dollars on it (assuming I even had a million dollars to bet). Perhaps what we are seeing is nothing more than Trump, for whatever reasons of his own, doing another one of his famous flips. (We will probably see more flips in the future.) All I can tell you for sure is that when I look into the eyes of the German Shepherd in the photo above, I do not see Donald Trump staring back at me. As I say, you will not see a look like that in the eyes of a politician, and Trump first and foremost is a politician. If we are going to lift ourselves out of the wretched swamp of insanity our country has fallen into, it is up to us to take the initiative. No politician is going to do it for us.
