TRUMP V. PALESTINE

THE ABSURD TIMES

TRUMP V. PALESTINE

Are not things bad enough for the Palestinians without Donald Trump? When he said that he though a more “neutral” position in regard to Israel would be better, no one suspected that he meant the elimination of Palestine altogether. After all, it is much easier to be “neutral” as a mediator when one of the parties is neutralized.

All of Trump’s so far have been against the purpose of the agency for which they have been proposed. Perry may be a possible exception as he may forget which agency he is supposed to run and simply not show up. Isn’t the Department of Energy still in control of nuclear weapons:

The DOE/NNSA has federal responsibility for the design, testing and production of all nuclear weapons. NNSA in turn uses contractors to carry out its responsibilities at the following government owned sites:

· Design of the nuclear components of the weapon: Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

· Engineering of the weapon systems: Sandia National Laboratories

· Manufacturing of key components: Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Kansas City Plant, and Y-12 National Security Complex

· Testing: Nevada Test Site

· Final weapon/warhead assembling/dismantling: Pantex

Perhaps Rick Perry is not all that familiar with nuclear mechanics? How cares? Maybe we could just set a bunch off and end this whole farce.

Well, all of Trump’s appointments have been as bad, or worse. None, however, is so outrageous as his appointment of the next U.S. Ambassador to Israel, a man to the right on Nit wit yahoo, and who gives anti-Semitism a bad name. So far (btw.), I am not aware of a word from Alan Derschowitz on the subject.

You all realize by now that his election was made possible by the DNC appointing Hillary as its candidate rather than Sanders. The DNC needs drastic changes too numerous to list here, but elimination the “Super Delegates” would be a good start. A Progressive head of the DNC would help.

What follows is a very important discussion of the subject that probably better get out before Trump takes over and shuts down any media:

President-elect Donald Trump is facing widespread criticism for picking David Friedman to be the next U.S. ambassador to Israel. For years, Friedman has served as president of American Friends of Beit El Institutions, which has raised millions of dollars to support illegal Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. Friedman, who has no diplomatic experience, has also worked as a bankruptcy attorney for Trump for the past 15 years. He supports Israel’s Jewish-only settlements in the occupied West Bank and says he doesn’t think it would be illegal for Israel to annex the entire Palestinian territory, despite the fact that it would be blatantly illegal under international law. During the presidential campaign, Friedman also said he opposes a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine. For more, we’re joined by Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace, and Mustafa Barghouti, leader of the Palestinian National Initiative and a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council.
