The American left continues to amplify their childish hysteria over Donald Trump’s election. They have finally settled on a reason the election was illegitimate: The Russians swayed the election.
If the Russians rigged the election in Trump’s favor then we have to assume they did a rather shabby job. I mean, Hillary did win the popular vote. Did the Russians rig that outcome? More to the point, did the Russians convince Hillary to set up her own server? Did the Russians make Hillary delete some 30, 000 emails? Did the Russians counsel Hillary to lie about Benghazi? Did the Russians sway the Senate and Congressional elections, the Governorships?—all a Republican majority.
The truth is Obama’s disastrous policies and Hillary’s dishonesty swayed the elections to the Republican column.
The left is outraged about Putin. But when a hot mike caught Obama assuring the Russians that after the election he (Obama) would be more flexible. That was just fine.
The problem is that Obama’s totalitarian leadership convinced Democrats that they would be in power forever. They could not imagine an America where they were not in charge.
Obama was forever announcing that he was on the right side of history, a pompous phrase that is meaningless.
I like to think that Torah observant Jews know something about history. We internalize history with every prayer and with every letter in the written and oral Torah. We know one thing for sure, the enemies of Israel, the enemies of Judaism, are but pages or footnotes in history: Amalek, the Philistines, Babylon, Rome, Haman, Antiochus, and now Obama.
Barack Obama will be forced to share the inauguration stage with Jews who have reclaimed Judea and Samarai, lands that were made Judenrein by IslamoNazis. Barack Obama will be forced to sit though an inauguration prayer authored and delivered by my good friend Rabbi Marvin Hier, who fully supports the Jews of Judea and Samaria. Barack Obama has spent eight long years demonizing Jews and Israel. Now he is witness to those very Jews as an integral part of Trump’s America.
Sometimes history bends towards irony.
In a sign of the different attitude of US President-elect Donald Trump, the West Bank settlers’ council said Friday it has been invited to send a delegation to the presidential inauguration next week.
It said that Oded Revivi, chairman of the Yesha settlers’ council, will lead the delegation. He will be joined by Benny Kasriel, mayor of Ma’aleh Adumim, a large settlement next to Jerusalem.
This comes three weeks after the Obama administration failed to veto a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements, a move Israel bitterly condemned. Consecutive US administrations have called the settlements an obstacle to peace, saying they undermine the possibility of a two state solution.
Revivi said the invitation is a “clear indication” that the new administration understands the importance of his group. He says he is looking forward to working “with our new friends in the White House.”
Trump has appointed David Friedman, a Jewish-American lawyer with close ties to the settlement movement, as his ambassador to Israel. Trump also has vowed to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a step the Palestinians strongly oppose.[…]
The announcement came after it became clear that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not attend the inauguration, quashing earlier reports that he had been invited to attend.
Netanyahu was not invited to the inauguration in Washington DC, and leaders of foreign countries do not usually attend US presidential inaugurations, the Israel Hayom daily reported on Thursday, citing the Prime Minister’s Office.
