One of the things that I love about Bitcoin is that the fun never seems to end. On Sunday, Bitcoin futures began trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange for the first time ever, and within minutes the CBOE’s website crashed. What a perfect metaphor. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are completely and utterly disrupting the global financial system, and the financial establishment is still groping for a cohesive response to this growing phenomenon.
For a long time the financial establishment seemed to think that if they just kept publicly trashing Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that they would eventually just go away. In fact, earlier today I came across a story that talked about how Deutsche Bank is warning of a “Bitcoin crash” in 2018. But what they don’t realize is that we have reached a tipping point, and the world will never go back to the way it was before.
And even though other global financial institutions are dragging their feet, an enormous threshold was crossed when Bitcoin futures were launched on the Chicago Board Options Exchange just a few hours ago…
On Sunday, the Cboe will finally launch its long-awaited bitcoin futures contract; the CME Group will launch its futures contract later this month.
This will surely add a new element to bitcoin, shifting it from a buy-side-only trade to introducing the ability to go long — or short. This should bring new, larger and institutional participants into the market.
This move will also make it more tempting for large institutions to try to manipulate the price of Bitcoin, and that is always a dangerous thing.
But overall this is being hailed as a great thing for Bitcoin, and many believe that the wild ride that Bitcoin has been on in recent weeks has been because of this upcoming futures launch. The following comes from CNBC…
The futures are cash-settled contracts based on the auction price of bitcoin in U.S. dollars on the Gemini Exchange, owned and operated by virtual currency entrepreneurs Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss.
“The pretty sharp rise we have seen in bitcoin in just the last couple of weeks has probably been driven by optimism ahead of the futures launch,” said Randy Frederick, vice president of trading and derivatives for Charles Schwab in Austin.
As I write this, the price of Bitcoin is sitting at $16,487.99, which is much higher than it was just a couple days ago. At one point it had dipped below $14,000, but it has bounced back nicely.
And this could be just the beginning for Bitcoin futures. According to CNN, Bitcoin futures will soon begin trading on a couple of additional exchanges as well…
There’s more to come. Bitcoin futures will also begin trading on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange on December 17-18, while the Nasdaq will debut the options sometime next year.
Many of us that didn’t get into Bitcoin when it was first emerging are still kicking ourselves. But one individual who did, but later abandoned his efforts, has more than 80 million dollars sitting in a landfill somewhere. The story of a British man named James Howells was recently featured by Gizmodo…
Through his computational labors, he amassed around 7,500 bitcoin before his girlfriend, fed up with the noise of block-mining hardware, made him stop. No great loss—the Silk Road was two years away and bitcoin was worth next to nothing.
Most of the equipment he was using was sold for scrap after he spilled lemonade on it, and the hard drive containing the key to his digital wallet sat in a drawer for three years before passing into its final resting place: the trash.
Near the tail end of 2013, Howells took stock of the crypto markets and began to regret his hasty cleaning decisions. At that time bitcoin’s market cap was beginning to climb, and his 7,500 lost coins were worth a few million. Four years later and he still—understandably—hasn’t let it go. One bitcoin is currently valued at $11,500, making the small fortune Howells sent to a landfill a considerably larger fortune of over $80 million.
Could you imagine being in his shoes?
That hard drive would almost certainly be virtually impossible to find at this point, but I am sure that he thinks about his lost fortune all the time.
But this is the great thing about Bitcoin. Fortunes are being won and lost outside of the control of the global central banking system, and this has got to be driving the central bankers absolutely bonkers. I have always believed that there would be a massive crackdown on cryptocurrencies someday, and this is something that Adam Taggart recently discussed with a digital currency expert…
We talked about the central banking cartel’s longstanding monopoly of the money supply and its historic ruthlessness for squashing all competition. He agreed that the central banks would like nothing more than to replace the current cryptos as well as all paper fiat currencies with digital sovereign versions. And he predicts they will likely try to do exactly this. How successful will they be? Uncertain. He can certainly foresee a time when they ban ownership of Bitcoin and its brethren, criminalize transacting with them, and shut down the exchanges. Though while the cartel may be able to seriously curtail Bitcoin et al, he doesn’t see it succeeding in driving them to extinction for several reasons. One he offered that I hadn’t heard before (but have since verified) is that private investors have put a network of satellites up in space dedicated to making it possible to transact in Bitcoin anywhere on Earth even if the terrestrial networks are taken down by the authorities or natural disaster.
I agree that it is quite likely that global central banks will eventually come out with their own digital currencies using blockchain technology. At that point it is entirely possible that they could try to ban the use of Bitcoin and other independent cryptocurrencies, and we must not allow them to do this.
The use of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is one way that humanity can express independence from the global debt-based system that is systematically enslaving all of us, and so I greatly applaud the entrepreneurs that are working so hard to make these new digital currencies viable.
But the battle over currencies is just in the early chapters, and some huge twists and turns are ahead. We don’t know exactly how everything is going to play out, but it is definitely going to be a wild ride.

In a press release, the European Commission detailed their decision.
"The European Commission has today decided to refer the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland to the Court of Justice of the EU for non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation," Brussels says. "Despite the confirmation by the Court of Justice of the EU of the validity of the relocation scheme in its ruling from the 6 September, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland remain in breach of their legal obligations. The replies received were again found not satisfactory and three countries have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision."
"The Council Decisions require Member States to pledge available places for relocation every three months to ensure a swift and orderly relocation procedure. Whereas all other Member States have relocated and pledged in the past months, Hungary has not taken any action at all since the relocation scheme started, Poland has not relocated anyone and not pledged since December 2015. The Czech Republic has not relocated anyone since August 2016 and not made any new pledges for over a year."
All three countries have responded to the Commission, indicating that they are prepared for the legal battle to come and will safeguard the interests of their citizens from the demands of globalists.
"Poland is ready to defend its position in the Court," Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski told the Polish Press Agency. "No one will lift the duty of providing public safety from the Polish government."
Polish Foreign Minister, Witold Waszczykowski, echoed these sentiments, adding, "Our position is clear - we disagree with the policy put forward by the EU two years ago."
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó offered a scathing rebuke, highlight the existential threat that waves of Third World and Islamic migrants pose to European civilization.
"Hungary is in a major dispute with the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs with relation to illegal immigration, which is a key determining issue from the perspective of the continent’s future," he said. "The government rejects illegal immigration and mandatory settlement quotas, and will continue to fight for the interests and security of the Hungarian people."
"Hungary has an interest in a strong European Union, and this requires debates on the future of Europe to by conducted within the boundaries of rationality."
The Czech Republic's newly appointed prime minister, Andrej Babiš, offered a strong response, cautioning Brussels that they risk imploding the EU with their authoritarian tactics.
"We have a different view on this matter," Babiš said. "We do not have the same asylum policy as other EU member states. Our public feels strongly about who should be allowed to settle in the country and if the EC fails to respect this, then I fear that it will only boost those forces who want to see the EU fall apart and that would be a pity."

WTAS: Support For President Trump's Decision To Recognize Jerusalem As Israel's Capital
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu: “We’re profoundly grateful for the President for his courageous and just decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to prepare for the opening of the US embassy here. This decision reflects the President’s commitment to an ancient but enduring truth, to fulfilling his promises and to advancing peace. The President’s decision is an important step towards peace, for there is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.”
President of Israel Reuven Rivlin: “Thank you @POTUS @realDonaldTrump. There is no more fitting or beautiful gift, as we approach 70 years of the State of Israel’s independence. Jerusalem is not, and never will be, an obstacle to peace for those who want peace.”
Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Danny Danon: “We welcome this courageous decision by President Trump. In 1948, President Truman was the first world leader to recognize the State of Israel and today President Trump righted a historic wrong by recognizing Jerusalem as our capital.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “President Trump‘s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital aligns U.S. presence with the reality that Jerusalem is home to Israel’s legislature, Supreme Court, President’s office, and Prime Minister‘s office. We have consulted with many friends, partners, and allies in advance of the President making his decision. We firmly believe there is an opportunity for a lasting peace.”
Speaker Of The House Paul Ryan (R-WI): “This is a day that is long overdue. Jerusalem has been, and always will be, the eternal, undivided capital of the State of Israel. The city’s status as the religious epicenter of Judaism is an historical fact—not a matter of debate. Today’s announcement is a recognition of reality that in no way inhibits efforts to reach a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. I commend President Trump for taking this important action, and for exploring next steps to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA): “Today the President recognized a reality: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. The House and Senate have on three separate occasions supported recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, including by enacting the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995 to move the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. If acknowledging truth inspires violence, it is those who commit the violence, not the truth, that are at fault.”
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA): “By recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, @POTUS has shown we’re willing to back up our allies.”
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD): “Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel, something that the United States Congress has reaffirmed and a fact of history that cannot be denied. Our country must play a constructive role in supporting Israel as it seeks the peace and security its people deserve by continuing to promote a two-state solution through direct, bilateral negotiations that will end any question of Jerusalem’s status.”
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN): “Today’s announcement recognizes what has been true for almost 70 years, namely that Jerusalem is Israel’s seat of government. On a bipartisan basis, Congress has repeatedly voted overwhelmingly to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and I applaud the president’s initiative in making this a reality.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA): “I welcome the administration’s decision to recognize Israel’s self-identified capital. Sovereign nations have a right to determine their seat of government, and our close ally Israel should not be treated differently. Relocating the U.S. Embassy should be done carefully, and in a way that advances our national security interests in a dangerous and unstable region.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY): “I support the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel and to move the U.S. embassy there. This decision is long overdue and helps correct a decades-long indignity. It recognizes where Israel’s government—the parliament and the prime minister—is based, as well as the ancient and unbreakable connection between the Jewish people and Jerusalem. I look forward to a plan to ensure the safety and security of our embassy personnel.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL): “I commend President Trump for following U.S. law and recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel…. Today’s announcement is an important step in right direction. Unequivocal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will be complete when the U.S. embassy is officially relocated there.”
Sen. David Perdue (R-GA): “I commend President Trump for taking continued steps to reaffirm the United States’ relationship with Israel after years of questionable policies from the Obama Administration….By recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the President is recognizing both an historic and modern reality, Jerusalem is the center for the Jewish people and all parts of Israeli government reside there today. President Trump has shown Israel is a priority, and we will continue to work together in support of our longtime friend and ally.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA): “Jerusalem Embassy Act of ‘95 (Senate vote 93-5 & I voted for it) states embassy should be in Jerusalem by 5/31/99. For 18 yrs, Rep + Dem presidents waived. Congrats Pres Trump for making this move. Amen!!!”
Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS): “President Trump’s courageous decision to relocate America’s embassy to Jerusalem is long overdue. I supported bipartisan legislation to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem in 1995 as a freshman member of the House of Representatives. I believe now what I did then: Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided home of the Jewish people. We should treat Israel like we do every other country and locate our embassy in its capital city.”
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO): “President Trump’s announcement today recognizes that Jerusalem is an integral part of Israel’s history, and will be an essential and enduring part of its future. I continue to support efforts to advance negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, and today’s announcement should in no way hinder that process.”
Sen. Deb Fischer (R-NE): “I support POTUS announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It demonstrates a strong commitment to our ally & is consistent with a bill passed by Congress & enacted into law under President Clinton in 1995.”
Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV): “I applaud President Trump for his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I’m also pleased that the Administration committed to developing a plan to relocate the American Embassy to Jerusalem….Today’s decision sends a message to our strongest and oldest ally in the Middle East: the United States Senate stands with Israel.”
Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH): “#Jerusalem has always been the capital of Israel. I’ve long supported moving the U.S. embassy there, including voting for the bipartisan Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995.”
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK): “I applaud President Trump for officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and beginning the process of moving our embassy to the Holy City. Not since supporting the creation of Israel in 1947 has the United States done more to uphold our strategic and long-standing ally, Israel. As an original cosponsor of the legislation that prompted this action, I look forward to supporting him and his administration over the next few years as they begin the process of moving the embassy to Jerusalem.”
Sen. James Lankford (R-OK): “After more than two decades of bipartisan requests from Congress, I applaud the President’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the start of a long process to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem….Israel is America’s closest friend In the Middle East and she is a solid partner in research, strategic defense, and freedom. We have a unique relationship and a special bond among nations.”
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC): “I applaud @POTUS for reaffirming our commitment to our greatest ally in the Middle East by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, following through on many years of bipartisan advocacy.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “I fully support the Trump Administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel because this statement reflects the reality on the ground for the last 3,000 years. Why did the Trump Administration decide to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel? Because it always has been and always will be.”
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC): “The fact is, for all intents and purposes, Jerusalem is and has been the capital of Israel. Their legislature is seated there, as well as their Prime Minister. Congress has repeatedly voted in a bipartisan manner in favor of recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the President has made the right decision to formalize that recognition. I look forward to our embassy moving there as security and staffing are ramped up, as well as strengthening our relationship with Israel as efforts to find peace in the region continue.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX): “I enthusiastically commend President Trump for today’s courageous and heroic decision…. This day will forever be etched in the history books as one of the great moments in history. The strongest and most prosperous country in the world has rectified what has been a historic injustice for far too long, recognizing the ancient and sacred city that has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years, and the capital of the one and only Jewish State since 1948.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT): “I am thrilled with the President’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and his plan to move the US Embassy there…. I have long supported the recognition of Jerusalem as the official Israeli capital, most notably as a co-sponsor of the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which my colleagues introduced to the Senate in January. The President’s action, which reaffirms US legislation that has been on the books since 1995, sends a clear signal that we are prepared to defend the interests of the United States and its allies.”
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT): “I applaud President Trump’s proclamation and join him in recognizing that both throughout history and today, Jerusalem is the true capital of Israel. The President has also been bold in directing that the State Department expeditiously begin to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, following the international custom of having official diplomatic representation in national capitals around the globe.”
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL): “#Israel is 1 of our most impt allies. We’re dedicated 2 its security & freedom. As a Christian, Israel is sacred 2 me as it is 2 many Americans. Congrats 2 @realDonaldTrump on recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel. Past presidents used words on this subject Trump uses action”
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ): “I applaud President Trump’s action to implement the 1995 decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move our embassy to its rightful place in the city. Jerusalem is the historic capital of the Jewish people. I pray for a peaceful transition.”
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ): “Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Thank you, @POTUS.”
Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ): “I applaud President Trump’s courage in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and her seat of government. This is an historic and long overdue decision.”
Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ): “By relocating our embassy to Jerusalem, President Trump is doing what our country should have done two decades ago: fulfill our promise to our ally and formally recognize the Jewish State of Israel’s undivided capital…. I applaud the President’s decision, which sends a strong and clear message to the international community that we are beginning a new chapter in our alliance, one in which America keeps our promises towards Israel and doesn’t waffle about where our true allegiance lies.”
Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA): “Jerusalem is the historic, declared and functioning capital of Israel. Its legislature and other national institutions are in Jerusalem. There’s bipartisan support for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and I applaud the president’s actions today.”
Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO): “.@POTUS kept his campaign promise to declare that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, as it has been for thousands of years. I applaud him for laying the groundwork to swiftly relocate the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.”
Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL): “#Jerusalem is without question the capital of #Israel and should be recognized as such. Denying simple, obvious truths is not a strategy for peace. I commend the Administration for reaching this decision.”
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL): “President Trump is doing what his recent predecessors have promised but failed to deliver: formal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, to be followed by relocation of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem!”
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL): “It is well past time that our embassy is moved to its rightful home. Though many may be upset with the decision, or even use this as an excuse to incite violence, we must remember that #Jerusalem is the country’s true capital.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL): “Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem sends the Palestinian Authority a message that their days of denying @Israel’s existence are over, & that they must become an honest partner in peace. I commend @realDonaldTrump today for honoring our friend & ally Israel.”
Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL): “Today is a day of celebration for those of us who recognize the truth that #Jerusalem is the rightful capital of Israel. For groups like Hamas, this is just another excuse to cause violence & destruction that proves they are not ready to negotiate peace.”
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) & Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL): “The President’s decision today is a recognition of existing U.S. law that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that the U.S. embassy should ultimately be located in the capital. There is no debate that the Jewish people have a deep-rooted religious, cultural and historic tie to Jerusalem, and today’s decision reaffirms that connection. The fact is that Jerusalem – an ancient and holy city to all three monotheistic faiths – will remain the capital of the Jewish state in any iteration of a negotiated two-state solution.”
Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL): “We need to send a clear message to the world that we support Israel and recognize Jerusalem as its eternal capital…. I and my fellow members of Congress are hopeful that relocating the embassy will strengthen our vital alliance and send a clear message to the world: America stands with Israel.”
Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL): “I applaud the decision by @POTUS to move the US Embassy in Israel to #Jerusalem. This step is important to our relationship with our ally Israel. An important part of peace between Israel and Palestine is Israel’s right to exist, its self-determination, and its rightful identity.”
Rep. Karen Handel (R-GA): “Jerusalem has been - & will always be - the undivided capital of Israel. I applaud President Trump for the decision to recognize it as such.”
Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA): “It is the diplomatic right of any sovereign nation to choose where their nation’s capital is located; and, for 67 years, Israel has recognized Jerusalem as their capital.”
Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID): “I applaud @realDonaldTrump for recognizing that #Jerusalem is the capital of #Israel and beginning the process of moving the U.S. embassy there. Jerusalem has been, and always will be, the capital of the State of Israel.”

Rep. Brad Schneider (D-IL): “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It has been the eternal capital of the Jewish people for more than three thousand years, and since 1948 the capital of the Jewish state. These are facts that cannot be denied.”
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN): “It’s great to have a president who is finally enforcing the law passed by Congress in 1995 recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of #Israel. Today’s news re-affirms the special relationship between the United States and our cherished ally.”
Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN): “I support President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This recognition is long overdue. Hoosiers agree that Israel is our most important ally in the region, and President Trump’s decision reaffirms our commitment to stand with the Jewish State.”
Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN): “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the United States embassy rightfully should reside there. While presidents from both parties have called for this recognition of Israel, President .@realDonaldTrump is the first president to take action.”

Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC): “I applaud President Trump for fulfilling his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

This historic move by President Trump shows, once again, that the bond between our two countries is stronger than ever.”

There are times throughout United States’ history when our Presidents have sent the rest of the world a clear, powerful message of leadership and conviction. This historic moment will be remembered as one of those times.”
Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC): “#Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital since the time of King David. Jerusalem’s legislature and courts are in Jerusalem. Why should we continue to pretend otherwise? President Trump’s common sense decision is to move our embassy to Jerusalem is grounded in reality.”

Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY): “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA): “Today will surely shine throughout world history.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX): “I fully support @POTUS decision to recognize #Jerusalem as the capital of #Israel. Having first been expressed in the Jerusalem Recognition Act of 1995 & reaffirmed by a unanimous vote in Senate just 6 months ago, this historic step has strong, bipartisan in Congress.”

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and we are finally adhering to our own decades-old law in relocating our embassy there as well. I applaud the President for moving forward with this course of action. Our commitment to Israel is unwavering. Jerusalem is the true seat of the government of Israel.”
Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX): “I commend @POTUS for his unwavering support of Israel & his decision to recognize Jerusalem as its capital. For 22 years, the United States has acknowledged it as such, and now is the time to show the world that our country always back its allies and will always stand with Israel.”
Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI): “In January, I sent a letter to @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, urging him to keep his promise to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Thank you for keeping your promise, Mr. President!”
Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI): “I applaud the decision today by @POTUS to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is Israel’s undivided capital. By moving our embassy there, we’re sending a message of support for our strongest ally in the Middle East.”
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY): “I support Trump’s decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel & his announcement he will move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the eternal & undivided capital of the state of Israel, & the US has no closer or stronger ally than Israel.”
ADVOCATES & ADVOCACY ORGANIZATIONS
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC): “Today is a historic day for the U.S.-Israel relationship. For the first time, the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. AIPAC has always supported American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital city, and we commend President Trump’s momentous announcement and decision to initiate relocating the U.S. embassy there. This recognition is a long-overdue step to implement U.S. law…. Today’s action by President Trump is an important, historic step for which we are grateful. We urge the president to quickly relocate our embassy to Israel’s capital.”
The Anti-Defamation League: “For decades, ADL has called on the United States – and the entire international community – to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital…. We welcome President Trump’s announcement that the United States – almost 70 years after the founding of the State of Israel – will begin the process to relocate its embassy consistent with the longstanding bipartisan consensus as enshrined in the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995.”
Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America: “Just as the United States locates its embassy in the duly designated capitals of other nations, so too it should locate our embassy to Israel in that nation’s recognized capital. Mr. President, we thank you for your staunch commitment to the safety and security of Israel. We continue to pray that under your leadership the United States will continue to work to foster peace, security and liberty for the Jews of Israel, the United States and around the world.”
The Republican Jewish Coalition: “Time after time, President Trump has sent an unambiguous message to the world: the bond between the U.S. and Israel is strong, and after eight years of the Obama Administration, the days of daylight between our nations are over. Thank you Mr. President. Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with the Jewish people and the Jewish State.”
Agudath Israel: “Israel is a sovereign state. Sovereign states have every right to determine where their capitals are. Israel has designated Jerusalem as its capital. Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s national government…. President Trump’s welcome announcement today reaffirms that longstanding commitment, and deserves to be warmly commended.”
My Faith Votes Honorary National Chairman And Former Governor Mike Huckabee: “There is no brighter beacon of democracy in the Middle East than Israel, and President Trump’s announcement of Jerusalem as its capital reinforces — for the whole world to see — the truth that it has a right to exist. Christians in America should be proud that one of our closest allies, also the ancient homeland of our Judeo-Christian faith, exudes tolerance, steadiness and strength in a region too often marked by all the reliability of deserts full of shifting sand.”
Republican Jewish Coalition National Chairman And Former Senator Norm Coleman: “Tomorrow President Trump will announce a major change in U.S. policy -- that the U.S. Embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and that we will now recognize Jerusalem, the ancient and enduring capital of the Jewish people, as the capital of Israel. The President has delivered on another major campaign promise. President Trump is doing what he does so well: recognizing the reality on the ground. No more false news -- Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.”
Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks: “President Trump is taking a courageous stand that expresses his commitment to repairing and strengthening ties with Israel, our most important ally in the Middle East. For the RJC, the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has been a longstanding goal. We are grateful to President Trump for making it a reality.”
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins: “Today is a major milestone in America’s historic relationship with Israel. Under the bold and courageous leadership of President Trump, America is finally putting American interests and the interests of our key allies first. America’s foreign policy, as it pertains to Israel, is coming into alignment with biblical truth: Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state.”
Zionist Organization of America President Morton Klein: “The ZOA strongly praises and gives our heartfelt thanks to President Donald Trump for today officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and moving the US Embassy there. President Trump’s important, historic, moral and just action paves the way to move the US Embassy to Israel’s eternal capital Jerusalem.”
American Zionist Movement President Richard Heideman: “This announcement is a bold act in the spirit of Zionism that rectifies a historic wrong and is a proper recognition of Jerusalem’s millennia-old status as the capital of Israel and the Jewish People. This is an important recognition of Jerusalem as the center of the legitimate national, ancestral and indigenous claims of the Jewish people.”
Christians United for Israel National Chairman Pastor John Hagee:“Jerusalem has been the epicenter of the Jewish faith since King David danced into the city with the Ark of the Covenant over 3,000 years ago. It is the capital of the Jewish state, and I am grateful to the President for changing American policy to finally reflect this reality. I look forward to the day we open the doors of the US Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.”
Christian’ Israel Public Action Campaign (CIPAC) Founder Richard Hellman:“By not simply following the opinions of others around the globe, the President has demonstrated that he and America are not afraid of threats that some parties have made. This sends a strong signal that a truly great global power can and will do the right thing, despite threats from others.”
Liberty Counsel Founder and President Matt Staver: “President Trump’s affirmation that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel represents a significant and long overdue shift in U.S. policy.”
First Baptist Church Dallas Senior Pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress: “President Donald J. Trump has demonstrated true leadership today by recognizing Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel. President Trump is a modern-day profile in courage, accomplishing what no other president has been willing to do. It took courage for President Harry S. Truman to recognize Israel as a nation in 1948, and it took courage for President Donald J. Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today. He is a blessing not only to our nation, but to Israel as well.”
New Destiny Christian Center Senior Pastor Paula White: “Promise made. Promise kept. Once again, President Trump has shown the world what I have always known — he is a leader who is willing to do what is right however loud the voices are of the skeptics and the critics. Evangelicals are ecstatic, for Israel is to us a sacred place and the Jewish people are our dearest friends.”
National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) President Rev. Samuel Rodriguez: “President Trump has made clear that the time for acquiescence is over. Recognizing the Jewish people’s rightful claim to their eternal capital city puts the United States firmly on the right side of history. This is not only the right thing to do, it is the altogether righteous thing to do.”
Shadow Mountain Community Church Senior Pastor Dr. David Jeremiah: “God’s devotion to the Jewish people is the result of an eternal promise. We applaud the U.S. administration’s leadership for finally, rightly and formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital…. To this day, Israel stands as a shining light in the Middle East, a free democracy, a thriving economy and a vibrant culture undergirded by the rule of law. May she continue to be blessed and may we, the United States of America, be blessed by reaffirming that we stand firmly beside her.”
International Fellowship of Christians and Jews President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein: “On behalf of The Fellowship’s millions of Evangelical Christian supporters around the world, I applaud the U.S. administration’s decision today to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It is a bold, courageous move that is long overdue, and is especially significant coming from Israel’s closest ally. Both Jews and Christians around the world have prayed for this day, which rights a historic wrong by affirming to the world that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people.”
International Fellowship of Christians and Jews Pastor Silmar Coelho: “On behalf of thousands of Evangelical Christians across Rio de Janeiro and all of Brazil, I wholeheartedly welcome the U.S. administration’s brave and farsighted recognition of Jerusalem, our holy city, as Israel’s capital.”
International Fellowship of Christians and Jews Rev. Hyung Eun Chi: “On behalf of thousands of Christians across Seoul and all of South Korea, I commend the U.S. administration’s long-overdue recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This is an historic moment for Christians and Jews around the world.”
Hope Christian Church Bishop Harry Jackson: “President Trump‘s support of Israel is encouraging. It marks the beginning of a new season in US Middle East Policy…. As someone who has been to Israel several times, I have seen the complement of this nation to democracy. As an African American, I have also seen the fairness and civil Freedoms afforded every resident: Black, White, Palestinian, or Jewish. I celebrate President Trump’s Historic decision.”
Cross Church Senior Pastor Dr. Ronnie Floyd: “I’m thoroughly pleased President Trump has taken this action when it comes to our ally Israel. By recognizing that Jerusalem is Israel’s unquestionable capital and promising the subsequent move of the U.S. embassy, President Trump has incurred blessing on America, for Scripture says God blesses those who bless Israel.”
Prestonwood Baptist Church Pastor Dr. Jack Graham: “President Trump’s announcement — that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s rightful capital and that our embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — is the best news to come out of the Middle East in decades. As a Christian, I’m grateful America is playing a decisive role in the story of God’s chosen people, and I’m very glad President Trump is displaying the courage to fulfill a promise to support Israel and its biblical role among the nations.”
Harvest Christian Fellowship Pastor Greg Laurie: “We stand with the Jewish people and the nation Israel. We bless them and thank God for them. Jerusalem is their eternal capital. I am grateful for the U.S. administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”
Dr. Alveda King: “President Trump is on a record promise-keeping-roll. His support for Israel, undergirded by our ‘prayers for the peace of Jerusalem,’ are encouraging evidence that God is blessing us.”
Skyline Church Senior Pastor Dr. Jim Garlow: “It is quite possible that President Donald Trump’s statement on Israel today is the single most important announcement regarding Israel by a U.S. President since President Harry Truman recognized Israel as a state 70 years ago on May 14, 1948.”
Free Chapel Worship Center Senior Pastor Jentezen Franklin: “We stand with the President of the United States, the nation of Israel and her right to declare Jerusalem as the capital. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem as scripture implores us to do, and we trust her peace and prosperity, not to man-made institutions and international efforts, but to the God of all Peace, and to the greatest Jew to have ever lived, Jesus Christ.”
EDITORIAL BOARDS & COMMENTATORS
New York Daily News Editorial Board: “Donald Trump’s acknowledgment of reality by formally recognizing, as United States policy, what has been the case for more than 3,000 years is welcome. It undoes 70 years of American fiction that this is a city without a country, part of some mythical international territory, neither Jewish nor Arab… Finally recognizing that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel states a fact that anti-Israel forces need to get through their heads sooner or later: The Jewish State isn’t going anywhere. Deal with it.”
The Washington Free Beacon Editor-in-Chief Matthew Continetti: “By keeping his campaign promise today, [President Trump] has called the bluff of everyone who thought the United States could have its cake and eat it too on the question of Israel’s capital. And by moving our embassy to Jerusalem, the United States will acknowledge Israel’s right to determine its own capital city. That is not something to condemn or fear. It is something to be proud of.”
Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak: “Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving the U.S. embassy there is just a recognition of reality. But it is also a courageous decision, showing that the U.S. will stand with our allies regardless of terrorist threats. President Trump’s decision also represents a guarantee of Israeli sovereignty in at least part of Jerusalem…. It is no exaggeration to say that for Jews, recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is an event of almost Biblical significance. And we are witnesses to it.”
ADP Services Reports Largest Number of New Manufacturing Jobs in History – 40,000 New Manufacturing Jobs in November
Payroll company ADP reported the largest monthly increase in manufacturing jobs ever in their history for November!
Charles Payne from FOX Business reported yesterday that America under President Trump is in a Manufacturing Renaissance –
Talk about promises kept…the revival of American manufacturing is staggering. In the ADP report 40,000 new manufacturing jobs were created in November the highest number ever for the report (back to 2002).
The most racist term in America has become ‘White Privilege’ a term and agenda created by the left. In fact it is the arrogance of American privilege that allows these haters of freedom to start a race war and it is not just ludicrous, it’s dangerous. Haters are always going to hate. Lovers will always love. True colors are the mantra of today and you are seeing it everywhere. It is getting easier everyday to see the people who fell under the subjugation spell and were told to call it ‘resistance’. Whether through choice, indoctrination, GMO foods, fluoride in the water, or Chemtrails in the air, there is an actual physicality that has taken place and appears to be hitting the frontal lobe area. They are devoid of actually seeing and discerning truth, this is not some reach, this is how they see the world - through broken lenses. It’s not clear if they can return to a normal life and this is a matter of National Security. We cannot have the undermining of America from mentally misguided citizens become even remotely possible, these people are clearly not in control of their faculties. This agenda needs to be stopped at every conversation, every argument, every time someone calls you out for being white, shout THAT IS A RACIST TERM. Stop division no matter how dumbed down you’ve become. Trust me we’ve all been dumbed down at times in our lives whether by choice or not, the trick is to ‘See the light Not the White’.

It’s been a rough year for former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Florida Democrat made headlines after her IT specialist Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Imran Awan and brothers were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment by Democrat lawmakers even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach and were not IT specialists.

Big News for the World
By Anna Von Reitz
Big News for the World
[The irony is that the world banking community knows the news already; the only shock is that we know the news and have chosen to come forward and share it with everyone else.]
The American states and people own the debt of virtually every government at every level in the entire world--and we are aware of that fact and we are telling the world: hey, stop dealing with middlemen who are claiming to represent us.
No deal they can make "for" us is valid.
In commercial terms, the banks, lawyers, and politicians are not authorized to represent us in the settlement of any alleged bankruptcy, debt, credit, or other matter affecting our role and responsibility as the Paramount Security Interest Holders.
Instead of talking to bankers or politicians -- talk to the actual Postmasters who hold the bank charters and who are fiduciaries of the Creditors. Okay?
This is not rocket science.
For everyone's information, the actual government of this country is an unincorporated Body Politic. Our name is: The United States of America. We operate in sovereign (that is, unincorporated) capacity. We do business as people using simple Trade Names and as persons in charge of unincorporated businesses engaged in peaceful international trade. We are the Paramount Security Interest Holders and Priority Creditors of the UNITED STATES, INC. and all franchises thereof.
Ditto the USA, Inc. and all successors, derivatives, franchises, holdings, and variations thereof.
Our Post Master and Hereditary Head of State is James Clinton Belcher. Our Post Office and Seat of Government is located at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Great Seal of the United States of America and the lesser (delegated) Great Seal of the United States belong to us as sovereign property.
We exercise all international land jurisdiction and retain all non-delegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea which naturally belong to the Union of the States of America as an unincorporated Holding Company created by those same states. Our official language is American English. Our official law is American Common Law. Our law is Public Law exercised for private purposes. Our money is the United States Silver Dollar, aka, American Silver Dollar.
We hold the charter on all private banks, all state credit unions, and all international trade banks.
We also ultimately subrogate and hold the charters of all federal commercial banks and credit unions under delegation. We have several accounts at the U.S. Treasury and we basically own the assets of the U.S. Treasury under delegation.
We have established cured claims upon all assets of the various federal corporations and federated "states of states" and we have posted our Private Indemnity Bonds. The name of our National Banking Association is The American States and Nations Bank. We are open for business through all our state credit union facilities nationwide.
Please note that state credit unions are specifically in business to serve "natural persons" known as "people" and unincorporated businesses, and also note that all state (not federal) credit unions are lawful money institutions already and are enabled to accept precious metals deposits and asset-backed currencies.
Anyone having any questions is welcome to contact me for additional details, but it really is as easy as looking up "state credit unions" in the phone book, or, if a state credit union is not available in your area, get together with your neighbors and form one.
The government of the United States by contrast is Territorial in nature. The United States Postmaster General is RUSSELL-J:GOULD. In its delegated capacity, the Territorial United States also has its seat of government located at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In its municipal capacity, the Territorial United States also holds a seat of government in Washington, DC.
The United States holds the delegated authority over commercial affairs. As a result, it holds the charters of all the commercial banks and federal credit unions. These institutions all deal with "persons"---incorporated entities and their franchises ---not actual living people.
The fiat currency -- the Federal Reserve Notes, for example, are all issued by the United States in the name of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which is a corporation created by the US NAVY --a municipal corporation and now, a UN Corporation, that has nothing to do with the unincorporated government of The United States of America.
It is merely infringing on our international common law copyright of our business name and trademarks which have been in effect and in constant use since September 9,1776---a situation which is now under correction.
So it is now a matter of public record placed before at least 50 million people worldwide exactly who the Postmasters for The United States of America and The United States are and who exercises the rights and responsibilities.

Statement from the Press Secretary on the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen
The United States welcomes the announcement from Saudi Arabia and the Saudi-led coalition that it is reopening Hudaydah port and Sanaa International Airport to allow the urgent flow of humanitarian aid to the people of Yemen. Full and immediate implementation of the announced measures is a first step in ensuring that food, medicine, and fuel reach the Yemeni people and that the aid organizations on the frontlines of mitigating this humanitarian crisis are able to do their essential work. We look forward to additional steps that will facilitate the unfettered flow of humanitarian and commercial goods from all ports of entry to the points of need. The magnitude of suffering in Yemen requires all parties to this conflict to focus on assistance to those in need. All sides must support a political process with facilitating humanitarian relief as the top priority.
We remain committed to supporting Saudi Arabia and all our Gulf partners against the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ aggression and blatant violations of international law. Backed by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Houthi rebels have used destabilizing missile systems to target Saudi Arabia—systems that were not present in Yemen before the conflict. The international community must take the necessary steps to hold the Iranian regime accountable for its repeated violations of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 2216 and 2231 as the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps exploits the grave humanitarian crisis in Yemen to advance its regional ambitions. Millions of Yemenis are currently enduring severe deprivation; the United States continues to believe that this devastating conflict, and the suffering it causes, must be brought to an end through political negotiations.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s horrific terrorist attack at a mosque in Egypt’s North Sinai province. We offer our condolences to the families of those killed and wounded, and we stand with the people and government of Egypt against terrorism. There can be no tolerance for barbaric groups that claim to act in the name of a faith but attack houses of worship and murder the innocent and defenseless while at prayer. The international community must continue to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups that threaten the United States and our partners and we must collectively discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence.

President Trump is attempting to calm down the U.S. conflict with Turkey. The military junta in the White House has different plans. It now attempts to circumvent the decision the president communicated to his Turkish counterpart. The result will be more Turkish-U.S. acrimony.
Yesterday the Turkish foreign minister surprisingly announced a phone call President Trump had held with President Erdogan of Turkey.
United States President Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spoke on the phone on Nov. 24 only days after a Russia-Turkey-Iran summit on Syria, with Ankara saying that Washington has pledged not to send weapons to the People’s Protection Units (YPG) any more.
“President Trump instructed [his generals] in a very open way that the YPG will no longer be given weapons. He openly said that this absurdity should have ended much earlier,” Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told reporters after the phone call.
Trump had announced the call:
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Will be speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey this morning about bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East. I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!
12:04 PM - 24 Nov 2017
During the phone call Trump must have escaped his minders for a moment and promptly tried to make, as announced, peace with Erdogan. The issue of arming the YPG is really difficult for Turkey to swallow. Ending that would probably make up for the recent NATO blunder of presenting the founder of modern Turkey Kemal Atatürk and Erdogan himself as enemies.
The YPG is the Syrian sister organization of the Turkish-Kurdish terror group PKK. Some weapons the U.S. had delivered to the YPK in Syria to fight the Islamic State have been recovered from PKK fighters in Turkey who were out to kill Turkish security personal. Despite that, supply for the YPG continued. In total over 3,500 truckloads were provided to it by the U.S. military. Only recently the YPK received some 120 armored Humvees, mine clearance vehicles and other equipment.
The generals in the White House and other parts of the administration were caught flat-footed by the promise Trump has made. The Washington Post writes:
Initially, the administration’s national security team appeared surprised by the Turks’ announcement and uncertain what to say about it. The State Department referred questions to the White House, and hours passed with no confirmation from the National Security Council.
The White House finally released what the Associated Press called:
a cryptic statement about the phone call that said Trump had informed the Turk of “pending adjustments to the military support provided to our partners on the ground in Syria.”
Neither a read-out of the call nor the statement AP refers to are currently available on the White House website.
The U.S. military uses the YPG as proxy power in Syria to justify and support its occupation of north-east Syria, The intent of the occupation is , for now, to press the Syrian government into agreeing to a U.S. controlled "regime change":
U.S. officials have said they plan to keep American troops in northern Syria — and continue working with Kurdish fighters — to pressure Assad to make concessions during peace talks brokered by the United Nations in Geneva, stalemated for three years now. “We’re not going to just walk away right now,” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last week.
To solidify its position the U.S. needs to further build up and strengthen its YPG mercenary forces.
When in 2014 the U.S. started to use Kurds in Syria as its foot-soldiers, it put the YPG under the mantle of the so called Syrian Democratic Forces and paid some Syrian Arabs to join and keep up the subterfuge. This helped to counter the Turkish argument that the U.S. was arming and supporting terrorists. But in May 2017 the U.S. announced to arm the YPG directly without the cover of the SDF. The alleged purpose was to eliminate the Islamic State from the city of Raqqa.
The YPG had been unwilling to fight for the Arab city unless the U.S. would provide it with more money, military supplies and support. All were provided. The U.S. special forces, who control the YPG fighters, directed an immense amount of aerial and artillery ammunition against the city. Any potential enemy position was destroyed by large ammunition and intense bombing before the YPG infantry proceeded. In the end few YPG fighters died in the fight. The Islamic State was let go or eliminated from the city but so was the city of Raqqa. The intensity of the bombardment of the medium size city was at times ten times greater than the bombing in all of Afghanistan. Airwars reported:
Since June, an estimated 20,000 munitions were fired in support of Coalition operations at Raqqa. Images captured by journalists in the final days of the assault show a city in ruins.
Several thousand civilians were killed in the indiscriminate onslaught.
The Islamic State in Syria and Iraq is defeated. It no longer holds any ground. There is no longer any justification to further arm and supply the YPG or the dummy organization SDF.
But the generals want to continue to do so to further their larger plans. They are laying grounds to circumvent their president's promise. The Wall Street Journal seems to be the only outlet to pick up on the subterfuge:
President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to stop sending weapons directly to Kurdish militants battling Islamic State in Syria, dealing a political blow to the U.S.’s most reliable ally in the civil war, officials said Friday.
The Turkish announcement came as a surprise in Washington, where military and political officials in Mr. Trump’s administration appeared to be caught off-guard. U.S. military officials said they had received no new guidance about supplying weapons to the Kurdish forces. But they said there were no immediate plans to deliver any new weapons to the group. And the U.S. can continue to provide the Kurdish forces with arms via the umbrella Syrian militant coalition.
The "military officials" talking to the WSJ have found a way to negate Trump's promise.
A spokesperson of the SDF, the ethnic Turkman Talaf Silo, recently defected and went over to the Turkish side. The Turkish government is certainly well informed about the SDF and knows that its political and command structure is dominated by the YPK. The whole concept is a sham.
But the U.S. needs the YPG to keep control of north-east Syria. It has to continue to provide whatever the YPG demands, or it will have to give up its larger scheme against Syria.
The Turkish government will soon find out that the U.S. again tried to pull wool over its eyes. Erdogan will be furious when he discovers that the U.S. continues to supply war material to the YPG, even when those deliveries are covered up as supplies for the SDF.
The Turkish government released a photograph showing Erdogan and five of his aids taking Trump's phonecall. Such a release and the announcement of the call by the Turkish foreign minister are very unusual. Erdogan is taking prestige from the call and the public announcement is to make sure that Trump sticks to his promise.
This wide publication will also increase Erdogan's wrath when he finds out that he was again deceived.

President Donald Trump should give special thanks to two U.S. Senators this Thanksgiving weekend. One is still serving in the Senate, the other recently retired. One is a Republican. The other a Democrat. And what should President Trump be thanking them for? Quite simply they have handed him one of the biggest victories any president could claim in the past 45 years.
Yes, this has happened even as one of the most widely covered stories of the past year has been President Trump's difficulties in working with Congress. The growing rift between him and Republican Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Bob Corker alone has made headlines for months. For a U.S. president to have this many public feuds with senators from his own party this early in his presidency is really unprecedented and makes for hot news copy.
But that story ignores a bigger and longer-lasting development in the federal judiciary. That brings us first to naming the Republican gift giver: Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa. The longtime member of Congress has big time clout as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. And Grassley has just used that clout to eliminate one of the final hurdles in the already furious pace of Trump administration judicial appointments to the federal bench.
Late last week, Grassley decided not to honor a Senate tradition of holding up hearings for judicial nominees who aren't cleared by their own home state senators. That tradition is known as the "blue slip courtesy" born out of time before nationwide communication technology when a given state's senators had access to much more information about nominees than their colleagues from the rest of the country. Grassley correctly noted that Democrats were now trying to use the blue slips tradition to replace the filibuster, and he's having none of that. As recently as last month, the Democrats and much of the news media's punditry were expecting Grassley, who is no fan of the president, to keep the blue slip tradition in place. But Grassley gave Trump this very special gift instead.
And that brings us to the Democrat who provided the initial generous source of President Trump's solid triumph: Former Senate Majority Leader, and Democrat, Harry Reid. Reid is a major reason this good fortune has befallen President Trump because Reid was the one who killed the filibuster rule for judicial nominees in 2013. And when he killed it, it was gone for good.
Republicans were powerless to stop a series of President Obama's judicial nominees after that. That is, until they won control of the Senate in the 2014 elections. The GOP may have failed at using that majority to achieve much, especially making even a dent in Obamacare. But they were able to freeze the Obama nomination process in its tracks, most notably by delaying and eventually killing Merrick Garland's nomination for the Supreme Court.
That long period of confirmation obstruction has given President Trump a huge number of seats to fill; twice as many as President Obama's also large number of vacancies when he took office in 2009. The Christian Science Monitor reports this is likely the most vacancies for a president to fill in 40 years. And the Trump team hasn't been wasting much time.
For those who believe President Trump won the 2016 election thanks to a series of Democratic Party errors, this is cut from the exact same cloth.
Consider that as of November 3rd, 13 Trump nominees to the courts have been confirmed this year. The big name is Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, but we also have eight new federal appeals court judges, and four new U.S. district court judges. President Trump has now already surpassed the last four presidents' records for first-year judifical confirmations. And he's even tied President Ronald Reagan number of appeals court confirmations in year one.
But this isn't just about sheer numbers, it's about ideology too. While President Trump and conservatives have diverged in matters of policy several times over the past year, the judicial nomination process is decidedly not one of them. The nominees sent to the Senate from the White House are more conservative and even younger than what we saw during President George W. Bush's two terms in office.
In case the importance of making an impact on the courts is lost on anyone, just note the many setbacks the Trump administration has suffered this year alone thanks to the courts. Delays and changes to the White House-imposed travel and immigration bans have grabbed the most attention. But the administration is also dealing with judicial push back and other potential hurdles on everything from its opposition to the AT&T-Time Warner merger to its transgender military ban.
Now fast forward a couple of years where the Trump judicial appointment surge will have set in across the federal system. Just for this administration alone, that could make a huge difference. And for conservative causes and cases over time, it will be even more significant.
Sure, the tax reform and Obamacare repeal bills may be jeopardized by internal spats between the GOP and the White House. But real history is being made in the courts all thanks to a bad bet made by Senator Reid and remarkable cooperation between the Trump team, Senator Grassley, and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. While the fights with other senators like Flake et al may grab headlines, these judicial confirmations will have a much bigger impact.
And unless the Democrats win control of the Senate in 2018, there's nothing they can do about it.
So on this Thanksgiving weekend the most grateful person in America should be President Trump. An unlikely set of benefactors has truly given him the political gift that will keep on giving.
