UPDATE ON THE BIDEN STORY AND EFFORTS TO STOP IT

"Joe Biden still has not been forced to explain why he fired Ukraine’s top prosecutor at precisely the moment his son was being paid to get him to fire Ukraine’s top prosecutor.”

That was Tucker Carlson on his Thursday show, which aired live before Biden’s televised town hall was over. Sure enough, that observation was still true afterward, because Biden wasn’t asked ONE QUESTION about this. And no wonder; anyone invested in a Biden win 2-1/2 weeks from now must know how damaging the story would be if it got the attention it deserves.

Biden also has never said whether or not he personally benefited from son Hunter’s foreign business dealings. He still insists he’s never talked with his son about them, not once. But according to one of the more telling emails on what is almost certainly Hunter’s discarded laptop, “Pop” benefited quite a lot. “I love you all,” it reads. “But I don’t receive any respect and thats fine I guess – works for you apparently. I Hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

What? Joe Biden was pocketing half of what Hunter made?

No doubt Hunter wouldn’t have made the big bucks without his father’s last name, and he has acknowledged as much. So in a way, it might seem fitting that his father would take a generous cut. That is, if his father weren’t VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Rudy Giuliani describes this as “a racketeering case.”

Tucker went on to talk about Thursday's update in the NEW YORK POST (don’t look for it on Twitter, as they’ve deemed the whole story “unsafe”), which explores Hunter’s dealings in China. Here, we’re talking about tens of millions of dollars, even hundreds of millions and more. Another email on the laptop reads, “At the moment, there’s a provisional agreement the equity will be distributed as follows: Ten held by Hunter for the big guy...” The “big guy” surely was Joe Biden. So, can this money destined for him be traced back to the CCP?

According to Miranda Devine, a columnist for the NY POST, one deal with a Chinese energy company netted Hunter Biden $10 million a year for “introductions alone.”

He was also on a $1 million retainer from another company for “legal services.” Devine poses the question that, since the gravy train continued when Biden was no longer Vice President, what exactly were the Chinese paying for? I assume she’s wondering what we all are: were they anticipating the day when Biden would be running for President and likely becoming Commander-in-Chief in, say, January of 2021? They clearly want him to win.

This brings to mind the Clinton Global Foundation, whose billions in donations dried up soon after Hillary lost in 2016.

Ironically, by blocking a story that involves the the CCP, Twitter and Facebook are acting JUST LIKE the CCP. (Really, who needs Russia to “meddle” in our elections when we have Twitter and FB to do it?) And now Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are using Big Tech’s rejection of the Biden story as evidence that it’s not true. They’re saying it’s “debunked” when it’s not at all.

As Tucker pointed out, Twitter and FB aren’t claiming it's a hoax but are simply cutting off communication about it. I hope it’s not getting tiresome for me to bring up George Orwell, but these people really are acting like the Ministry Of Truth. They want censorship if it works in their favor. And they don’t mean just to shut down some obscure blog, though that would be wrong as well, but even to censor major publications to silence a story they don't want. Likewise, they’ll pass along an easily-debunked lie if the lie is what they DO want. They’ve crossed a big red line.

This should scare the pants off you.

According to Ms. Devine, the Biden campaign is backing off its original response, which was that his official calendar had no record of his meeting with the Burisma official who’d emailed Hunter a thank-you for their meeting. Now they’re saying they “would not rule out the possibility” of a meeting, but it would’ve just been “informal” and “cursory.” Okay, but the official had referred to “spending some time” with the Vice President. How much time?

She concluded by saying, “Maybe he will answer it tonight when he does a town hall. I doubt whether he’ll be asked any really tough questions, though.” (Wow, she must be psychic!)

Fortunately, outside the mainstream, there’s still some real journalism going on, such as this update from THE EPOCH TIMES.

Yesterday, I expressed curiosity about the “backstory” of the abandoned MacBook Pro, notably how it came to be subpoenaed by the FBI –- where it seems to have been deep-sixed around the time of the Trump impeachment (hmm). Seems I was not alone.

Giuliani says he received a copy of the hard drive three weeks ago from his attorney, Robert Costello, who got it from John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware. (Isaac had had the laptop for 90 days and was unable to contact the owner.) Steve Bannon negotiated a deal and passed it to the NY POST, which also did its own authentication. This deal allowed Giuliani to later disclose the material to other media as he is now doing. (This begs the question: Can Twitter shut them ALL down?)

What I’m most curious about is the FBI subpoena --- what was that about? Mac Isaac gave Costello a copy of what he said was the subpoena, dated Dec. 9, 2019, used to seize the laptop. (Fortunately, he copied the hard drive before he turned it over.) Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he wants the FBI to "come clean." What were they doing with this? Why did they sit on it?

The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware declined to confirm the authenticity of the subpoena. As in the old song, “They didn’t say yes, they didn’t say no.”

There are some inconsistencies with Mac Isaacs as a witness; the EPOCH TIMES piece mentions these. Still, they have little to do with whether or not this laptop is the real deal or a hoax. These emails are either real or they’re not, regardless of Mac Isaac’s motivations or the fact that Giuliani is Trump’s attorney. It’s understandable that Giuliani and other Trump advocates are working overtime to get the truth out, because “journalists” have utterly failed to do their job and don’t even care if Biden and his family are corrupt.

DARN THOSE OPEN MICS

Darn Those Open Mics: New York Gov. Andrew “Party of Science” Cuomo was caught on a microphone admitting that his “Close everything” coronavirus policy wasn’t the best thing to do, but it was “fear-driven.”

A GOOD READ

I know it can be disheartening to keep hearing how Joe Biden is ahead in the polls by double digits (which is the point of those polls, by the way: to dishearten you.) How can that be, when his aides call a lid on the day before “Good Morning America” is over; when he does emerge from his basement, he babbles more baffling word salad than Prof. Irvin Corey (Google him, kids); and when his campaign events draw fewer people than a kale salad food truck in Memphis?

I’ve long warned people not to believe the polls-for-public-consumption (the campaigns have far more accurate insider polls), which tend to be structured not so much to reflect the results of the race as to influence them. So to keep your spirits up, read this article by Keven McCullough with the misleading title, “Signs That Trump Isn’t Going to Win on Nov. 3rd.” They’re actually signs that he’s going to do more than win, he’s going to score a crushing landslide. In fact, the notoriously unreliable polls are the only indication that Biden is leading.

This is great to read, but don’t let it make you complacent. Trump needs every vote to overcome all the Democrats’ dark money, in-kind contributions from the media and social media, and seething Trump hatred ginned up by years of daily lies and slander. He’ll need a win lopsided enough to convince the other side that its long-planned fraud, protests and lawsuits will be futile. So tell every Trump backer you know that their vote is vital, and drive them to the polls if they need a ride.

TRUMP MEETS THE DEMOCRAT PRESS

Anyone who felt cheated by not getting a second Presidential debate has no more reason to complain after last night’s dueling townhalls. On NBC, President Trump debated an aggressive representative of the Democratic Party (NBC’s Savannah Guthrie), while on ABC, Joe Biden got a metaphorical shoulder rub and a cup of hot cocoa along with his puffball questions from former Democratic campaign operative George Stephanopoulos.

For you masochists who actually want to watch them in full, here’s the Trump townhall:

And here’s the Biden townhall.

Put the two together, and you pretty much had what would’ve been the second Presidential debate. If you don’t believe me, note that the originally-scheduled moderator, Steve Scully, is a former Biden intern who was caught tweeting to Trump critic Anthony Scaramucci for tips on how to deal with Trump. He claimed his Twitter account had been hacked, but has now admitted lying and been suspended by C-SPAN, although I’m sure this will lead to a more lucrative job at CNN or MSNBC.

Also from that story: “Worth noting: Scully is not being placed on leave for the political bias that some might have claimed he had based off of the tweet, but for using poor judgement and lying.” Naturally. If our current TV news channels put employees on leave for political bias, their studios would be emptier than New York bars under Andrew Cuomo.

Getting back to the townhalls/dueling debates, the biggest news to come out of them was that Stephanopoulos managed to go for a full 90 minutes without asking a single question about the two biggest stories of the day: the blockbuster New York Post report about Joe's son Hunter’s alleged lucrative influence peddling to foreign governments and Twitter and Facebook’s Orwellian attempts to shut down any mention of it. It’s as if ABC’s top house Democratic operative looked at the massive in-kind contribution to elect Biden from the social media giants and said, “Hold muh Chardonnay!” Believe it or not, this was an actual question: “If you lose, what will that say to you about where America is today?” I do hope he won't be too disappointed in us!

There was also a little news made when Biden said he’s “not been a fan of Court-packing,” but “it depends on how this (the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation) turns out.” So can we assume that if Barrett is confirmed, he will okay packing the Court? Surprise, surprise!

Despite an atmosphere so cozy/comfy that one commentator said it was like watching “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Biden was given far more commercial breaks than Trump and he still seemed to fade in the last half hour. I did enjoy his suggestion that we teach cops to deescalate confrontations with criminals by shooting them in the leg instead of shooting to kill. That hearkens back to his solution for dealing with prowlers: firing a shotgun off your balcony.

Joe also raised skepticism from the right and left with his comments about transgenderism.

Those on the right pointed out that he’d said Presidents who rule by executive orders are dictators, but then he said he’d just change the law and revoke Trump’s executive orders on this subject by executive order. But Trump's executive orders simply reversed the real changes in the law that were made by Obama, who really did rule via executive order. Those on the left were offended by his comment about an 8- or 10-year-old who “decides they want to be transgender” (that sounds dangerously close to the newly-offensive phrase “sexual preference.”) And I don’t think anyone on either side believed his story about seeing two men kissing in broad daylight in Wilmington, Delaware, over 60 years ago.

Meanwhile, Trump had to keep shouting over Guthrie for nearly half an hour at a stretch, despite having just come from hosting a two-hour campaign rally. As Guthrie kept rudely interrupting and arguing with him, I actually started to wish he’d channel Kamala Harris and tell her, “I’m speaking! I’m speaking!...”

As usual in these events, the questions for Trump mostly skipped over his Administration’s very successful policies to focus on MSNBC addicts’ obsessions, like claiming that there’s no evidence of voter fraud (I know she works in news, but does she ever read it?)…

…and demanding that Trump denounce Q-anon, which I bet most viewers never even heard of. Guthrie’s attitude perfectly summed up the media’s mindless harping on the same fake narratives when she ONCE AGAIN claimed Trump had never clearly denounced white supremacist groups (I recently linked to a video showing him doing that over 20 times.) His irritation with this never-ending garbage narrative that he and his supporters are racists was obvious. Here’s how that went:

Guthrie: You were asked point blank to denounce white supremacy. In the moment, you didn’t. You asked some follow up questions. “Who, specifically?” A couple of days later, on a different show-

Trump: Oh, you always do this.

Guthrie: … you denounced white supremacy.

Trump: No, you always do this.

Guthrie: My question to you is-

Trump: You’ve done this to me, and everybody-

Guthrie: … why does it seem like-

Trump: I denounce white supremacy. Okay?

Guthrie: You did, two days later.

Trump: I’ve denounced white supremacy, for years, but you always do it. You always start off with the question. You didn’t ask Joe Biden, whether or not he denounces Antifa. I watched him on the same basic show with Lester Holt, and he was asking questions like Biden was a child.

Guthrie: Well, so this is a little bit of a dodge.

Trump: So, are you ready? Are you… Wait. Are you listening? I denounce white supremacy.

Guthrie: Okay.

Trump: What’s your next question?

Guthrie: Do you feel, it feels sometimes you’re hesitant to do so, like you wait a beat?...

So by my count, she admitted he denounced white supremacy, then he said he denounced white supremacy, then he said he’d denounced white supremacy for years, then he said again, “Are you listening? I denounce white supremacy…What’s your next question?” And her next question was why are you hesitant to denounce white supremacy.

If she were a CD player, I’d take her to the repair shop because I’d think there was a disc stuck on repeat inside her.

There were other missed opportunities for Trump that had nothing to do with the inane, biased and insubstantial questions from his debate opponent. Sorry: the “moderator.” For instance, I wish he’d had a better answer ready when he was asked how he would replace Obamacare. He could have mentioned everything he’s already done to lower drug prices. Or talked about how relatively few people don’t have coverage from employers, Medicare, Medicaid or other programs that cover preexisting conditions, and that the best approach, as I argued back when Obamacare was first being shoved down our throats, was a targeted program to help those who need help, not a government takeover of the entire health care system that's working well for most people.

He also missed the chance to explain to the questioner the difference between the Barrett and Merrick Garland nominations: Obama was a lame duck President with a Senate controlled by the other Party. Trump is just finishing his first term with a Senate controlled by the same Party.

Trump also could’ve had a better answer ready for the “why don’t we raise taxes on corporations and make them pay their fair share” question. He missed a good opening to explain why Biden’s tax hikes would drive jobs overseas. Corporations don’t pay taxes, they collect them. Taxes are a cost of doing business, and those are passed along to consumers (that’s all of us.) If the cost of doing business in America gets too high, companies will move someplace where they’re lower and take their jobs (and their tax payments) with them. That’s the history of Biden’s tax policies in a nutshell.

It’s doubtful that either show (neither one was really a townhall, for different reasons) will sway many voters based on what was said. NBC focused on DNC talking points and ABC avoided the real issues. If they do have any effect, I hope it will be that the radical contrast between how the two men were treated, along with the frightening attempt at censoring half the nation by Facebook and Twitter, will so enrage fair-minded Americans who hate rigged contests that they will turn out in force and vote not to reward such behavior.

    The statement that opened the door of opportunity for me to share what have been my latest thoughts is where you mentioned the "seething Trump hatred ginned up by years of daily lies and slander."

    Although I have already mentioned this in an earlier comment, I am going to mention it again because I believe it is WORTH mentioning again...and this may not be the last time I mention it ...which is THAT...

    As far as I am concerned, one of the most potentially powerful statements that Trump made, during the townhall meeting, was his response to being asked if he would graciously accept the outcome of the election....which was that...he insinutated that he would accept it in the same gracious way the Democrats accepted HIS election!

    Mike, there is no one on planet earth who has won the privilege of giving advice to President Trump more than you have! You have more than proven TO him, your love and support OF him as has your daughter! THEREFORE, there is more than a good chance he could RECEIVE advice from you that he could not receive from anyone else because Trump finds it hard to admit that he NEEDS advice...
    especially if it is in the way of a correction...because, psychologically, and emotionally, he cannot admit to BEING wrong because that would make him a loser...rather than a winner...and he cannot deal with the pain of that...It is that pain that AUTHORS his anger, BUT, unlike his neiece, Mary, he is not an "angry man"!

    While Mary claims to be a clinical psychologist, she does not have a clue as to who Trump is FROM a psychological perspective....I believe that I do and it is not because I hold a Master's degree IN psychology!

    At this Nth hour, I do not want to delve INTO how Trump's, shall we say, psychological woundings author all the negative things he's being faulted for when it comes to what are his character "flaws"!....HOWEVER, what I AM going to purport (as a Christian who is not blind TO Trump's character flaws...from a SPIRITUAL perspective....in view of the fact that he, to say it now for the hundredth time, in telliing Authur Brooks that he did not agree with him that we, like JESUS told is, ARE to love our enemies by answering their hatred with love, he bore witness to the fact that he was spiritually blind to what Jesus meant by the "fruit" that would define who is, or is not, a Christian!)....

    Having now established the fact that I am NOT spiritually blind to Trump's, let's say, lack of Christlike behavior, nevertheless, I WILL say...with the spiritual authority that comes WITH understanding CHRIST'S medium of measurement of "character"...that the"seething hatred" toward Trump that was hurled at him by the Democrats....NOT because of any character flaws they saw in him...but just because he won and they lost ....is a "worser" evil...character flaw...than any they are accusing Trump of!

    Therefore, before the next debate, do I beg you to please get this across TO President Trump and that what he needs to "do", during this second debate, is do what Arthur Brooks told him to do...which is to answer hatred with love....
    because that is the one thing that could win the hearts of the yet undecided voters! And, perhaps, THAT fact will motivate him to "do" that which he does not want to do even if he has to bite his tongue...until it bleeds..to do it!.....

    Certainly it would be wonderful if he truly HAD this kind of agape love FOR Joe Biden, but, as far as I am concerned, his pretending to HAVE it is the lesser evil if it keeps the Democrats from winning!

    Oh how wonderful it would be if, during the debate, Trump could apologize FOR all the negative "character" flaws he's been accused of BY explaining how they are authored by his psychological wounds that the Democrats have spent day, after day, after day...for four years...pouring vinegar into!

    Trump "cried" to the women, during a rally, "please like me" and little does he know how THIS woman loves him with the kind of love he denounced at that National Prayer Breakfast...which is of far greater value than one's being "liked"
    ....which is authored by HUMAN, conditional, love which, in reality, is no love at all!!!!!

    People say Democrat's accuse others of wrong doing because they are doing wrong first. Jose Biden is a fool and he believes he is talking to the same fools he sees in the mirror. And according to the polls he has a very large audience. Jose believes his audience are betting he will pack the court the fools have no understanding what that means he plainly believes the fools think packing the court is a good procedure. Once Jose wins the fools will come to understand they cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube the supreme court will rule what they can say when and where they go and without real police protection they will be forced to make their own bow and arrows. Place your betts fools you have a 100 to 0 chance, you will lose. FOOLS Just FOOLS!

    Mike I would like to revisit the Anti Americans that would leave America if Donald Trump was elected President. These Communist minded leeches did not not leave did they. Sammy jackson, Allie Sharpton, Wacky Goldberg, Snoop Dog, Edwin Griffin, Jon Steward, Amy Schumer, Stevie King, while these child like Behaviors didn't happen, just like the child that threaten to run away from home. These people are all bark no bite and are annoying. The worst thing about these louts is that they stayed. Most countries would not accept them they have their own garbage people to contend with, so they stayed to continue to ruin the greatest nation the sadness is the cowardice of their DNA told them you will not make it without Uncle Sam so the the creeps stayed America continues to clean up the mess they leave.

    Savannah Guthrie is another poor excuse of a journalist. I give her a grade of an "F-" for her lack of conducting the town hall in a professional manner. If there was such a number of "Negative Zero", that is how I would rate her.

    Trump was there to answer the questions of the people in the room - not spar with Savannah. She did the attendees a grave injustice!

    I was glad there was a lady sitting behind the president nodding her head in agreement with him. She gets the A+ for the evening. I would have been doing the same thing!

    If I would have had the opportunity to ask the president a question, I would have first told him that Hell would have to freeze over for me to vote for the DIMS!

    An interesting way to verify if the number of covid deaths is the ballpark would be to gather the number of 2020 deaths from the funeral homes across the nation or verify the number through the death records of each state. Gather a count of how many different death certificates (do not count the multiples for an individual) have been issued and how many were covid related. There's always a way to verify most anything. Some of states may have to cough up some money if the covid numbers don't add up!

    When I backed out of the parking space, I noticed a "Bernie 2020" bumper sticker on the car next to me. The thought hit me as to how many Bernie supporters could write in his name on the ballot and cast their votes for him. Wouldn't that be a kick in the head?!

    It could up-end the election for both the Republican and Democrat parties. All the more reasons the full-fledged Trump supporters need to get out and vote during this election season!!! If Bernie votes are cast, let them bring upheaval to the DIMS instead of the GOP!!!

    Definitely an angle to consider!!! Nothing is off the table! Kamala and Bernie are better friends than she and Biden.

    Mother Jones has an interesting take on the Biden laptop. They claim that the laptop is a counterfeit product of Russian intelligence. Evidence? Well, well, who cares?
    There is something fishy about this QAnon stuff. Someone passed me a video of some people claiming to have recordings of Obama and biden and the bin laden is partying with Elvis tale. The woman in the video was struggling to keep a straight face and the man was dressed up in a peculiar costume which could only come off a movie set. Given the timing I suspected and relayed such to my friend that this thing was carefully crafted to make its way to Trump so he would be lulled into repeating it so the media giants coukd ridicule him and swing more voters to biden. Sadly Trump did. If there were any truth to the story the two claiming to have confidential government information would have been handcuffed by the FBI and behind bars. Somehow I suspect someone like a Soros or Stzork behind this QAnon phenomenon.

    Then I clicked on Joe Biden's live town hall and the bias news medium spent want seemed like ages running down our president and building up Joe Biden and it went on and on so I shut it off. I'll wait for you to tell me who won the live town hall debates. No matter,at the ripe age of 94, I'll take my walker and on Nov 3 I'll walk the three long blocks to my voting place and cast my vote for President Trump no matter what the weather throws at me. I have a Trump/Pence bumper sticker fastened to the front of my walker and I walk through this large 4 building senior citizen complex ever day showing it off.

    To quote Hilary, “why now does it matter”. I don’t think anything that’s being
    said now will make a difference. I fear that Biden/Harris will be elected. Not because of anything regarding facts or accomplishments, but because the DNC has successfully planned the “hate Trump, anyone but Trump Seed” and it has grown beyond expectations. Poor Mr. Biden, he really isn’t sure what’s in store for him. I am not even sure how much he understands that he is being used. Care to take bets on how long he will be President? Some say two years, others a month or three, and others a few days. I do hope I am wrong but whether we like it or not, the indicators are there for a Biden win. People seem to want a change and are not going to vote on facts or understanding of what drives the economy. I also believe the DNC will do anything, and I do mean anything, to sway the vote.

    I was watching the Trump town hall when that democratic operative asked him about Biden's comments on raising taxes on corporations because they don't pay their fair share.
    The Democrats, to me, conduct what I call psychological economics. They make it sound like corporations are getting away with placing their burden on the public. But the truth is that when you look at how one arrives at product cost it includes not only wages and salaries, buildings and equipment, and many other things, but also taxes. So, taxes are rolled into the cost of the product. Basically, corporations do not pay taxes the consumer does. If the Democrats raise the corporate tax, so that they pay their fair share, the cost of the products will go up taking money out of the public's pocket.
    So, beware of all those who use psychological terms to justify their agenda.

    Campaign "debates" are not debates at all. A debate provides an opportunity for advocates on both sides of an issue, pro and con, to address and argue the merits of their opinion on that single issue. That is not at all what happens today in campaign debates. Rather than posing the same question to both candidates as would happen in a true debate, the "moderator" offers up different questions to each candidate, often exhibiting striking bias to either showcase or debase a candidate. What happened to the President during the first debate against the team of Mike Wallace and Joe Biden, and in last night's town hall gives the viewer good reason to discount, ignore and avoid fake mainstream media news networks, and seriously question "news" on the internet or on mogul controlled social media platforms.

    My opinion is NO MORE DEBATES. The more I think about it the more I fear that if the Democrats win, not Joe Biden nor even Kamala will be in charge. Think of other countries when Socialism took over. There might be a General from the Pentagon be put in charge. At first I was thinking Hillary might take over, but I think they would have someone strong and mean do it. Bernie? but even he isn't bad enough, maybe. Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one having such thoughts. America will certainly be TRANSFORMED into something unbelievable.

    Don't expect any answers to tough questions for Joe the Weenie Biden. Just not capable. If this Weenie wins the flavor of a stick of Juicy Fruit chewing gum will last longer than Joe the Weenie's Stay in the White House. They will move him into Assisted Living 24 hours after he takes the Oath. His replacement Harris will change the White House to the House for Gentlemen, ( Willie Brown will handle appointments)Hunter Biden will take the cover charge to see the Big Lady. Don't worry the Chicago Mayor will have a wing for clients and Don lemon will get a wing also Maybe obama gets a wing for the cast of Cuties for the segment of the Democratic party Bill Clinton and guests ,also a new wing will be set up for the Halloween group that doesn't know which wing to enter. The Democratic party is for change for America, whats left of its decency will be gone just like weenie Joe.

    Thank you Mr. Governor for cogent and often times tongue in cheek analysis which is what we need today. I live in a socialist state, and seeing as I am in one of the more liberal areas (the coast), I will not put up a Trump banner or sign in my yard for fear of my house being burnt to the ground, but I voted for Trump not because I felt it was an anti-Hillary vote, but a vote for who I thought could lead us out of the mess. By the way, I was a registered Democrat for 40 years until they left me. Thank you and keep up your fine work.

    Polls don't mean a thing. If I remember correctly Clinton was always ahead in the polls, there are two things I rely on, there's a cookie sales person in PA. that sales cookies with candidates name and they are always right, Trump wins 3 to 1. The other is the word of God concerning Isreal he would bless those who bless Isreal and curss those who curss Isreal. Now in all ways President Trump has blessed Isreal
