Let’s Not Forget All The Peace Trump Brought

Say what you want about Trump. Loud mouthed, boorish, too much friendly fire on Twitter and such. He’s done more for peace than most presidents, including that guy who got a Nobel Peace Price for doing nothing

Trump’s Legacy of Peace

For 72 years, U.S. presidents sought to achieve peace between Israel and the Arab world. For 72 years, they largely failed.

What for so long eluded presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Barack Obama seems to have come effortlessly to President Donald Trump. In the space of just four months, together with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump has achieved four peace deals between Israel and Arab states—twice the number achieved by all his predecessors combined. Last Thursday, Trump announced Morocco has joined the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Sudan in the Abraham Accords normalization agreements with Israel. Three or four more Arab states are likely to join the circle of peace in Trump’s final weeks in office.

Not only has Trump brought more peace to the Middle East, more comprehensively and faster than all of his predecessors combined, but he made it look easy. Israel’s ties with its Abraham Accords partners are expanding massively by the day. Tourists from the UAE are streaming into the country. And with one in seven Israeli Jews descended from the Moroccan diaspora, the potential for business and cultural ties between Israel and Morocco is almost limitless.

Trump’s sundry Middle East peace deals are humiliating for his predecessors. Not only did they fail where Trump has succeeded, but they insisted that his achievements were impossible.

For instance, John Kerry, who as Barack Obama’s secretary of state oversaw the administration’s failed Middle East peace efforts, insisted back in 2016: “There will be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world.”

Of course, Kerry was part of the regime that preferred to forge ties with Iran, which calls for the destruction of Israel and the United States. They preferred to work with the nation that launched terrorist attacks on US military members, took a Navy crew hostage, and support terrorism overall. Trump preferred to isolate Iran and kill their top terrorist enablers

A second pillar of U.S. policy toward the Middle East was forged shortly after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. From then on, all U.S. presidents sought to cut a deal with the Iranian regime, believing that the proper mix of carrots and sticks would convince the greatest state sponsor of terrorism to bury its hatchet against the U.S. Here too, the “expert” catechisms held sway.

The first pillar was to tell Israel to give up land it won in wars it mostly didn’t start to Palestinian terrorists who blow up women and children in pizza parlors and ice cream shops. Trump didn’t go for that, and, further, moved the embassy to Jerusalem. And he said to hell with the horrible Iran deal.

If Obama distinguished himself from his predecessors with his ideological zeal, Trump distinguished himself with his elevation of facts over ideology. Trump had a healthy disdain for expert dogmas that had repeatedly been proven false. Trump also believed the U.S. should side with its allies against its enemies, rather than court U.S. enemies at the expense of its allies.

Anyhow, there’s a lot more to this piece, well worth the read. Remember, Trump didn’t start any new wars and was working to pull the U.S. out of many wars. He put the U.S. and our allies first.

Now you have to wonder how China Joe will ruin all the peace.

    Russia Don hasn’t been all bad, just almost all bad. Now and then even a blind pig finds an acorn.

    We’ll see if Trump’s bribing/arming the Middle East leads to lasting peace.

    Our esteemed host asked:

    I know how: he’ll try to reinstate the awful Iranian nuclear deal, the one against which the Israelis lobbied so hard.

    But isn’t it amazing: when we finally had a President who didn’t try to somehow be ‘even-handed’ between the Israelis and the obnoxious Palestinians — whom the other Arabs see as the trash of the Arab world — peace deals became possible.

    Bill Clinton tried to be mostly even-handed, and he had a weak, more liberal Israeli Prime Minister in Ehud Barak, and got what President Clinton said was the best deal Yassir Arafat could ever hope to get. Mr Barak signed it, but Mr Arafat rejected it out of hand. He had to, because he knew that if he agreed to it, the irredentists in ‘Palestine’ would have assassinated him.

    The Palestinians don’t want peace, at least not any peace that leaves Israel in existence. There are enough of them who still think that they can have victory that the others have to go along, or they’ll be killed.

    Israel’s greatest mistake was to not round up and expel every last Arab from the conquered territories in 1967-68. If they had done that, then, there would have been a great outcry, but Israel would have shortened, much more defensible borders. Instead, they have left themselves with a fetid and festering sewer within their borders.

    Nothing says “there’s no widespread voter fraud” like covering up windows so one can’t see what’s going on inside…https://twitter.com/projectvirginia/status/1340417003455213568?s=21

      Sure, jil, why would anyone worry about violent reactionaries videotaping you while performing your job?

      These “videographers” were not authorized watchers, were they?

      Still not proof of anything fraudulent.

        “Sure, jil, why would anyone worry about violent reactionaries videotaping you while performing your job?

        First calling Republican poll watchers and ballot counters “violent reactionaries” (what violence did they do?) is not only a disingenuous use of the term it’s an out and out lie.

        Second, they were not “videographers”, they were American citizens concerned because the Republican counters were told to leave because “there was a sewer leak” (fake and a lie) but the Democrats covered the windows (a sure sign that noting criminal was going on /s) while they remained counting. BTW, the main “videographer” were the internal security cameras.

        “Still no proof of anything fraudulent”

        When you win a record low 17% of counties, lose Black & Hispanic support, lose 18/19 Bellwether Counties, lose Ohio, Florida, & Iowa — and lose 27/27 House “Toss-Ups” — but you shatter the popular vote record, THAT Elwood is called prima facie evidence, a presumption of guilt UNTIL disproved. The Dominion machines “rigged to flip votes” is also prima facie. You do realize over 70% of Americans believe there was tampering and that even over 30% of Democrats do?

        A forensic audit of voting machines in Michigan showed a 68% error rate, forcing ‘bulk adjudication of ballots’ by officials, which must be done by hand? Does anyone think that ONLY THAT ONE COUNTY had that problem?

        Peter Navarro has a longer version:

        “Evidence used to conduct this assessment includes more than 50 lawsuits and judicial rulings, thousands of affidavits and declarations, testimony in a variety of state venues, published analyses by think tanks and legal centers, videos and photos, public comments, and extensive press coverage,” the report claims.

        Additionally, the report cites affidavits alleging the exploitation of the elderly and the infirm by “effectively hijacking their identities and votes” and accuses Democrats of using the coronavirus pandemic to relax voter ID requirements to the point that ballot harvesting and fraud could slip by unnoticed.

        The report outlined incidents in the key states of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where ballots allegedly were illegally harvested and dumped into drop boxes.

        The election was marred with examples of dead people voting, according to the report.

        “In Pennsylvania, for example, a statistical analysis conducted by the Trump Campaign matching voter rolls to public obituaries found what appears to be over 8,000 confirmed dead voters successfully casting mail-in ballots,” the report claims. “In Georgia — underscoring the critical role any given category of election irregularities might play in determining the outcome — the estimated number of alleged deceased individuals casting votes almost exactly equals the Biden victory margin.”

        The report concludes: “The ballots in question because of the identified election irregularities are more than sufficient to swing the outcome in favor of President Trump should even a relatively small portion of these ballots be ruled illegal.”

        None of this evidence has been rejected by any court; all have refused to consider it citing a variety of jurisdictional hurdles.

        Americans should know how perilous their democracy has become. The majority of Donald Trump’s voters already believe the presidential election was rigged, and there is no doubt that suspect voting changes, attributed to the requirements of voting in a pandemic, have created large anomalies in five states that made a great many such votes impossible to authenticate. Untold numbers of ballots arrived at a time and in a manner that incites the inference that they were substantially fraudulent. The numbers of votes involved in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are undoubtedly adequately numerous to have influenced the election.

        The courts have failed to address the questions raised by this disturbing pattern of votes confined to only five states.”

        The refusal of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the appeal from the state of Texas, joined by 18 other states, is an outright abdication. Of course, Texas and its co-petitioners have perfectly adequate standing to demand that all states, in choosing a president, conduct their elections credibly enough to assure the whole country that the Constitution has been followed in filling the nation’s highest offices. For the Supreme Court to take the position, as it did, that it could not hear the election challenge case because Texas and the others did not have the standing to challenge how another state conducts its presidential election is completely spurious in the circumstances. Where the courts don’t exercise their jurisdiction, a vacuum arises which is likely to be filled by lawlessness, and potentially, even violent lawlessness.

        The United States has become a country where a majority of Americans—people of good will from both parties — believe presidential elections are not conducted honestly.

        The American people are raising legitimate questions & they deserve answers. Honest answers. What we don’t deserve is to be ignored, ridiculed, threatened and told to shut up. That’s what communist despots do.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Commenter typed: The American people are raising legitimate questions & they deserve answers.

          They have received legitimate answers, but sometimes the answer is “no”. How many times must you hear “no”? Court after court, judge after judge, the FBI, the DOJ, DHS, even the right-wing Supreme Court, have said “no”.

          Trump suggested using Sid Powell as a special counsel to examine election fraud.

          Should we just cancel ALL the elections held Nov 3 2020 and start over? House, Senate, WH, state Reps, Governors, Amendments… or just the ones the right lost? Flynn suggests re-running the battleground states again under US military armed guards.

          Kye, Mr Trump has exhausted his constitutional path to overturn the election. Are you advocating extra-constitutional actions? After all, your “side has all the guns”.

          American democracy HAS become perilous, but because of Donald Trump and his cult followers.

          Counties don’t vote, people do.

          Mr Biden did not lose enough Hispanic support to lose the election.

          18/19 bellwether counties? So what?

          Lost Ohio, FL and IA? So what? Biden won GA, MI, PA, AZ, WI, NV, NY, CA, NJ, IL etc etc

          Lost House Toss-ups? So What? Biden won his election.

          Yes, Biden did shatter the popular vote record. So what?

          It has not been proven (no credible evidence) that Dominion machines “flip votes”.

          It is untrue that 70% of Americans feel there was vote tampering. 34% (almost all Trump voters) feel there was voter fraud.

    The clear reason that so few supposed news outlets report about the clear evidence of fraud is because they just repeat the talking points that there was no fraud. They like judges who refuse to hear the evidence and just rule by fiat.
    They don’t care about all the whistleblowers who are willing to testify to fraud throughout the United States.
    All they care about is that the candidate they campaigned for and buried information for won.
    They clearly don’t care about a free and fair election, or basic electoral integrity.
