The World According to the Dems
By Diane Scherff
Once again, we are living in a world according to the Democrat party…one where rules do not apply to the Dems, nor do their infractions in the #MeToo Movement, or their ability to create, organize and promote any “terrorist group” who will aid and abet the downfall of America. The Democratic National Convention, held virtually this week, was the perfect PSA (Public Service Announcement) for the Progressive Party showing disdain for our President, excitement for Obama’s puppet Kamala Harris and a lukewarm introduction for Joe Biden…while at the same time, allowing a criminal recite the Preamble and two sexual-abuse criminals speak without any accountability.
According to the DNC Website, to kick off the event in Milwaukee, “the 2020 Democratic National Convention was officially called to order with some of America’s most impactful community leaders reading the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, in a new video titled ‘We the People,’” which featured “powerful images of everyday Americans who have come together over the past four years to mobilize their communities amidst Donald Trump’s chaos and crises.”
One of those “everyday Americans” dressed as Democrat leaders and political activists was Donna Hylton, a 55-year-old Jamaican woman convicted for the kidnapping, rape, torture, and murder of a 62-year-old Long Island real estate broker in 1986. According to an article in American Thinker, Hylton and her gang drugged Thomas Vigliarolo, brought him to their Harlem apartment, subjected him to a three week torture session which included starvation, beatings, burnings, and various forms of sexual torture leading to a gruesome murder. Once released from Prison, Hylton moved on to becoming a Liberal activist. Yes, that’s who we want reading the words of our Constitution…what a model citizen!
Ironically, the ‘press’ continues to push President Trump to denounce Qanon, an online conspiracy group that suggests the Democratic party shields rapists and pedophiles for political purposes and believes that President Trump is waging a secret campaign against enemies in the “deep state.” Although some of the group has shown violence in the past, it is not in direct correlation to the group or their main objective. Qanon believes that the truth about those in Washington trying to disassemble our country will come to light in this administration. When asked again this week, President Trump replied, “I don’t know much about the movement besides that they like me very much. These are people that don’t like seeing what’s going in places like Portland and Chicago.” The Democratic party has blamed President Trump for this group but in 2018 Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Trump “condemns and denounces any group that would incite violence against another individual.” Yet, the Dems continuously create, organize and promote Left-wing conspiracy groups and domestic terrorists like BLM, Antifa, Justice Democrats, etc. Double standard?
And of course, the #MeToo Movement fails to call out some of the biggest Democratic sexual abusers like Bill Clinton and Joe Biden. Just before Clinton took the stage at the DNC, more pictures surfaced of him and young girls while visiting sex traficking king Jeffrey Epstein’s private island many times. According Fox News, “Clinton’s scathing remarks about President Trump were overshadowed on Tuesday as critics pointed out his past controversies, including his extramarital affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, allegations of sexual misconduct and assault, and his past ties to deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.” Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault by several women, with specific allegations made by Tara Reade, a former staff assistant who worked for Biden during his time in the Senate. Of course, Biden denied the allegation, claiming it “never, never happened,” but Biden there had been earlier allegations against him last year when eight women came forward to say that he had “made them uncomfortable by invading their personal space or touching them inappropriately.” Yet, where is the outcry from Hollywood?
Even though the Dems continue to push the envelope, disregard the laws, and pretend that President Trump is a racist ruining our country, there just may be some truth to the Qanon’s belief that the day of reckoning is coming. The corruption Washington has run rampant for the Dems for too long and even though President Trump may look lost, I believe he will have the courage to beat these criminals once and for all…. Trump2020!
Great Diplomatic Mideast Triumph for Trump Administration
By Robert Blau
This past week sawthe announcement of a remarkable diplomatic achievement by the Trump Administration: brokering the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). As Ambassador David Friedman pointed out at the August 13 White House ceremony, the agreement is called “The Abraham Accord,” in honor of the biblical patriarch of the Jewish, Islamic, and Christian religions. The UAE is only the third Arab country to recognize Israel, after Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994), and if President Trump and other optimists are right about this new agreement serving as an ice-breaker, it may have started a new trend.
Already the two countries have established direct telecoms connections and plan to follow shortly with air connections that will make it much easier for Muslim pilgrims to visit holy sites in Jerusalem, such as the Al Aqsa Mosque. A small Jewish community has already found a home in Abu Dhabi, reversing the trend towards extinction of such communities in Arab countries since the establishment of Israel in 1948—Morocco being the only exception. There is much opportunity to be pursued in business and technological cooperation between Israel and the UAE, some of which has already occurred under the radar.
So far, the Arab/Muslim world has been relatively mute about the Abraham Accords, with predictable criticism coming from Iran, Turkey and representatives of the Palestinians. They are upset that the normalization only commits Israel to a pause (as opposed to cessation) in its plans to annex some territories in the West Bank that Palestinians claim belong to them. Although this is not the place to drag readers through the tortured history of Israel/Palestinian negotiations, it is hard not to find truth in former Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban’s famous 1973 quote: “The Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” This go ‘round, the UAE decided that it was not going to continue waiting for the Palestinians to miss yet another opportunity, and took the bold decision to fully recognize the Jewish state.
In the United States, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D/Michigan), of Palestinian descent, joined the rejectionists, as did former Obama Administration senior foreign policy advisor Ben Rhodes. Joe Biden reacted favorably to the announcement, but claimed that it was the culmination of work started by the Obama Administration. That is thoroughly disingenuous, as the Obama Administration’s Mideast policy gave priority to rapprochement with Iran, which generated great antipathy in Israel, the UAE and most other Sunni Muslim Arab countries. President Trump, with Jared Kushner as his point man, needed to jettison Obama/Biden policies in order to make the “Abraham Accord” possible.
This is what winning looks like. First of all, the Trump Administration’s deregulation of the U.S. energy industry has unleashed a monstrous growth in U.S. production, making us a net oil and gas exporter. No longer is it necessary for the USA to give away any bargaining chips to Arab OPEC oil sheiks who have us over a barrel. Additionally, much conventional wisdom has been put to rest, such as the idea that there would be chaos in the Arab streets if and when the U.S. moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. As Mr. Kushner said, there is no point in repeating the same approaches that have failed consistently for many decades. Kushner and others haven’t given up on seeking a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, but as the “Abraham Accord” demonstrates, that is no longer the nucleus around which all the rest of the Middle East revolves.

How the White House Prepared for a Pandemic
The Trump Administration “was well aware of the threat of a pandemic before the novel coronavirus emerged,” Joel Zinberg and Tomas Philipson write in The Wall Street Journal. In fact, a White House report produced last September laid the groundwork for President Trump’s historic push for a vaccine, now known as Operation Warp Speed.
