OUTRAGEOUS! POTUS Urges Israel to Ban Rep. Omar and Tlaib Visit!

In a developing story that should rock the world, the President of the United States went on to Twitter, to implore an international ally, to block the planned visit of two sitting United States Congressional Representatives, Rep. Omar and Tlaib. It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2019 And, to its lasting discredit, it appears that Israel is submitting to Trump’s “request.” According to Al Jazeera, Israel has indeed blocked entry to the only two Muslim United States congressional representatives. Israel has decided to block a visit by United States Democrat members of Congress Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely has said. “The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Radio on Thursday, shortly after US President Donald Trump warned Tel Aviv against allowing the two Muslim members of his country’s Congress to visit. Because Trump has demolished all norms, and lost the ability to shock us with any behavior, let’s commit to not normalizing this, and breaking down just how serious a breach in international relations and domestic tranquility, this represents. A United States president has openly called two sitting U.S. Congressional Representatives anti-Semitic. That alone should earn Donald Trump a reprimand if not impeachment. But, we have seen such racist attacks by Trump before. What we have not seen is a United States president, for purely political reasons, stepping in to request – near order – a United States ally to ban official U.S. representatives from that country, again, for purely political reasons. How quaint that one truism of US politics used to be that politics ended at the waters’ edge. If Israel had banned Representative Omar and Tlaib because they are Muslim, the president should be discussing sanctions against that nation, should be in an uproar, should be calling the Israeli Ambassador and demanding an explanation. If President Barack Obama had “Tweeted” (as if) that Canada should bar Representative Steve King because he is a disgrace to the United States, I would be furious with President Obama for being so nakedly political. Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has been quoted as stating that Representatives Omar and Tlaib should be allowed entry to Israel, that the trip should occur as planned. Though we are no fans of McCarthy, he IS acting in accord with international norms. Let’s acknowledge that portion of the Republican party. It is outrageous that we stand here today, in a world where Donald Trump feels more aligned with foreign governments who favor him, than United States representatives who challenge him. Of course, it is always about him and that is precisely the problem. We just never knew he would go so far as to essentially order another nation to ban two fine American representatives. Israel relies upon the United States for its security. If any president demands Israel do something, there is tremendous pressure to “do it,” even IF Israel disagreed with that president. It appears to me like domestic news sources […]

Genius: Trump Tower Address on Barack H. Obama Ave?

Breathtaking, simple, rarely does one run into such exquisite perfection. I implore you baby Jesus, make this come true: Over 85,000 sign petition to rename street by Trump Tower after Obama. If the request is granted, Trump Tower's new address would be 725 President Barack H. Obama Ave. https://t.co/W5ncEYPfpC pic.twitter.com/ZsnQFNvFia — PIX11 News (@PIX11News) August 14, 2019 Gaze in awe. Where do I sign? This requires such elegant, and deservingly cynical, thought, that I would offer-up the originator’s name for the Nobel Peace Prize. I say that, because if any one thing could slightly balance out the fact that Trump won the presidency, it would be seeing Trump’s hometown name the street below his feet after his “nemesis,” Barack Obama. Sweet mother of god that is just delicious irony, better than bacon dipped in guacamole. They have their reasons, too: NEW: Donald Trump specifically has been invoked in connection with violent acts, threats of violence or assault allegations in at least 36 criminal cases nationwide, per @ABC News review. No such cases found in the names of Barack Obama or George W. Bush. https://t.co/mEPAnNjtfV — ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) August 14, 2019 Exactly, so it’s not even partisan. Perhaps they will name a street after Bush, too. Just not the one lining along Trump’s “tower.” Besides, “5th Avenue” is sooo 20th century. “President Barack H. Obama Ave” has some elan going into the 21st Century. “Cool” versus “frumpy.” I would be proud to own a place at 725 President Barack Obama Ave. But only if they took that damn “Trump” sign off it, which may well be the next move in cleaning up the dump. Thinking on it now, the country will want a new name once we rid ourselves of Trump, start fresh …. UPDATE: Want to see a magic trick? Want to see ALL the power go out of that petition in two sentences. All that is required is a statement from Trump: “Though I have strong political differences with the man, Barack Obama was fine president, a tribute to this nation, and remains a great international statesman. It would be an honor to have a building on an avenue named after President Obama.” Poof. But he cannot do it. You know it, I know it, and that’s why it is so wonderful. **** Who says there is no good news out there? Peace, y’all. Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com
