Even the 'Good' of Eisav Is Bad for Israel

Trump: Israel Will 'Pay a Higher Price' for Jerusalem Embassy Move


...Trump, speaking at a political rally in West Virginia, said that the Palestinians will "get something very good" in return for the embassy move, "because it's their turn next."

...The statements by Trump were made during the last minutes of the political rally, which mostly focused on other issues. ...Toward the end of the rally, Trump began listing what he considers to be his foreign policy achievements. When mentioning the embassy move, Trump said that since Jerusalem is now "off the table," Israel will have to give something in return to the Palestinians.

"If there's ever going to be peace with the Palestinians, then this was a good thing to have done," Trump said about the embassy move. "We took it off the table. In past negotiations, they never got past Jerusalem. Now Israel will have to pay a higher price, because it's off the table. The Palestinians will get something very good, cause it's their turn next."
And hours later President Trump's shaky political situation just got a lot worse...
...Legal blows fuel impeachment fears
...“The verdict in the Manafort trial isn’t nearly as worrisome to me as the Cohen agreement and the Cohen statement,” said former Trump adviser Michael Caputo. “It’s probably the worst thing so far in this whole investigation stage of the presidency.”

One Republican lawyer close to the White House worried that Cohen – with his unique access to Trump’s history of business dealings and scandalous personal entanglements – could ultimately prove more damaging to Trump, and give Democrats fodder for impeachment if they take the House in November. “It’s the only excuse they’ll need,” the lawyer said. “And believe me, they won’t need much of an excuse.”

The sheer force of the two stories breaking within minutes of each other left an unavoidable impression that the walls are closing in on a president facing serious accusations of wrongdoing, leaving some to worry what Trump will do next.

One former administration official said there’s a “very high” likelihood that the president – who increasingly feels under attack from all sides – will do something erratic that could make an already bad situation worse.

I predict that Trump will not serve his full first term. I believe that the plan has always been to move Pence into place when the time was deemed ripe and I think they have to do it by removing Trump from office because I don't think they can get him elected.

Super-Christian, Evangelical-Catholic-Dominionist Vice-President Mike Pence is the most visible, most active, most influential vice-president I have ever seen and I don't think it is my imagination. 

But, of course, it is HKB"H Who ultimately decides these things and in the end, it will all be good for Israel. Just be sure to put all your trust in Him and not depend on mortal men.

  1. In light of recent events there's a conspiracy theory that's got the Democrats salivatng, as follows:1) Dems take House of Reps in Nov & enough of Senate to impeach. 2) A Democrat Congressman/woman from NY State resigns. NY State Gov Cuomo appoints Hillary Clinton to the vacant seat. Democratic majority in House of Reps elects HRC House Speaker (3rd in line to the Presidency). House & Senate try and impeach Trump and Pence. 3rd in line Hillary Clinton becomes USA President.

    1. The President would be replaced by the Vice President, not the Speaker, which is precisely my point. Refer to the case of Richard Nixon, if you don't believe me.

    2. Not so. In this scenario, the Senate & House impeach Pence along with Trump. With no second in line VP, Speaker of the House of Representatives becomes President, (none other than recently elected House Speaker, Hillary Clinton!)

    3. On what possible grounds could they impeach Pence? He's not even under investigation for anything!

    4. What did Beria say. Show me the man, I'll show you the crime! Eisav doesn't play by the "rules." He makes the rules.
      I don't know if the abovementioned scenario plays out, but it is theoretically consistent with the Constitution.

      And as the, Talmud points out, beware of the "Government,"
      and since we until Moshiach are still under she'abud malcuyos, better to anticipate all eventualities.

    5. Devash, what you say is technically true. But such is the mental state of the left I would not be surprised in the least if many of them do harbor such a Double Impeach/Double Convict fantasy. Even if some of them are less prone to such flights of fancy, a large number really do believe they will not only impeach Trump (a near certainty if the Democrats take the House) but convict in the Senate (no way it will be even close regardless of the outcome in November).

    6. "The President would be replaced by the Vice President," That is how the US got President Ford, who was appointed as Vice President [under the vice-presidential vacancy provision of the 25th Amendment] when Vice President Agnew resigned under tax charges.

    Baruh Hashem, the Creator is in charge.
    See the volcanic activity, the gasses that precede, eartquakes, floods, and all this causes sickness similar to the black death. It goes together with Basalt stones aka LAVA stone.
    Also in parths of Golan and the North of Kineret is full of these.
    The LAVA is boiling underneath almost everywhere.
    The fires didn't come from 'up' or sabotage, it catched flame from inside the Earth, from withing the trees.
    So when you see
    BURNED TREES FROM INSIDE
    WATER FLOODS
    RAIN IN UNUSUAL TIME
    EARTQUAKES
    SULFUR SMELL
    CRAZY ANIMALS
    SICK PEOPLE WITH SYMPTOMS OF SYPHILIS/PSORIASIS/BLACK DEATH
    remember

    Hashem, the G'd of Avraham Itschak and Yaacov is running this world and HE have a special plan in petto.
    Our sages speak/write about.
    For Am Israel there is just ONE SOLUTION.
    Tshuva PSHUTA.
    For the gentiles, repent for all the terrible things you did to us, and recognize that Hashem is ONE, that Am Israel is ONE and ONLY IN ERETZ ISRAEL.
    Now you know what you have to do.
    Your welcome.
    Thank you for reading.
    Take care.

  3. One thing that worries me is the conduct of american jews. I dont know why this cohen thinks what he is doing has any benefits. He is not just a back stabbing lawyer but a back stabbing jewish lawyer. Thats how Trump and his supporters will see it. Clinton-> lewinsky, trump -> cohen and then of course there is weisntein who will take flack for the sleaze in hollywod and you can see how the position of jews is US and Europe is only going to get worse

    1. And the chillul Hashem is compounded by being a Cohen, who is held to a higher standard than the rest of us.

      Having high-profile Jews in these circumstances does not bode well for the larger Jewish community.

      Don't think Trump's neo-nazi and xian antisemitic supporters will not blame all the Jews if Cohen brings down his presidency.

  4. Very good post. But, it has been said (written) that only 40% of Ashkenazic Cohens are really cohanim. Do believe this is quite accurate as they seem to intermarry more than others.

  5. This Cohen character is really a 'character'. The idea that an attorney should tape his private conversations with his client is really low. Don't understand why the pres ever hired such a guy. These are the 'jews' who cause anti-semitism to explode and with so many 'jewish' names in government and committing so many unethical and criminal deeds should wake up the real Jews to come home, if they can and those far removed from Yiddishkeit to wake up and do teshuva, to hasten the Geula Shleima, once & for all-Amen!
