    President Trump’s top envoy in Germany has found himself in the middle of a diplomatic firestorm less than a month after being sworn in. In an interview from his office in Berlin with the right-leaning Breitbart News, Richard Grenell made an acknowledgement unusual for a diplomat: he wanted to “empower other conservatives throughout Europe.”“I absolutely want to empower other conservatives throughout Europe, other leaders. I think there is a groundswell of conservative policies that are taking hold because of the failed policies of the left,” Grenell said, adding that it was “an exciting time” to be serving as ambassador. The...

    BERLIN, Germany: Trumpian U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has expressed great excitement over the wave of conservatism in Europe, saying he wants to “empower” leaders of the movement. At a sit-down interview at his official residence in Berlin with Breitbart London, Ambassador Grenell said: “There are a lot of conservatives throughout Europe who have contacted me to say they are feeling there is a resurgence going on.” “I absolutely want to empower other conservatives throughout Europe, other leaders. I think there is a groundswell of conservative policies that are taking hold because of the failed policies of the left,”...

    MSNBC reporter Andrea Mitchell said it was "appalling" that the U.S. moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem without obtaining any concessions from Israel. Mitchell expressed astonishment at the Trump administration placing the blame for violence solely on Hamas, who instigated riots along the border in Gaza. White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah on Monday did not call for Israel to soften its response to the riots, leading Mitchell to decry the administration’s support for Israel. "I've never seen anything like that," Mitchell said. "Even the strongest supporters of Israel in administrations Republican and Democratic would at that point...

    The final prayer spoken at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday thanked God but also touched on the historic and biblical significance behind President Donald Trump’s decision to officially recognize the capital of Israel by moving U.S. diplomatic headquarters from Tel Aviv to the “city on the hill.” The Rev. John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, and national chairman of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), gave the benediction following the dedication ceremony that included remarks by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump advisors Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and Treasury Secretary Steve...

    A hardline Iranian organization is reportedly offering a $100,000 reward to any person who bombs the newly opened U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, according to a translation of Farsi language reports. A group known as the Iranian Justice Seeker Student Movement is reported to have disseminated posters calling for an attack on the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, which has been opposed by Palestinian and Iranian officials as an affront to the holy city. "The Student Justice Movement will support anybody who destroy the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem," the poster states in Farsi, Arabic, and English, according to an independent translation...

    Several celebrities blamed President Trump for a deadly protest over the new U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem Monday. “I’m glad Ivanka and Jared could take time away from their busy schedules of not being qualified to represent the US to go represent the US, and celebrate moving the capital in exchange for the adelson’s donations, while 50+ Palestinians have been killed,” Chelsea Handler tweeted to her millions of followers.
  • Should President Trump Have Moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    Following President Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it is now basically all out war on the border between Gaza and Israel. Israel is today celebrating its 70th anniversary as a sovereign/independent nation and in the same time is facing a huge Palestinian uprising. Ivanka and Jared are now in Jerusalem, along with US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, to commemorate the official opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem (prior to that, we only had a consulate in Jerusalem). President Trump announced months ago that he’s going to fulfill his campaign promise, acknowledging Jerusalem...

    WASHINGTON — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is among a handful of Republican senators expected to attend the controversial opening of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, his office has confirmed. The trip comes roughly five months after President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announced plans to relocate the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. Cruz, who has long called for such a move, praised the decision as “courageous and heroic.” But many Arab and European leaders slammed Trump for upending a decades-old foreign policy in which U.S. presidents declined to weigh in...

    President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner — both White House advisers — led the United States delegation in Jerusalem, Israel on Monday for the opening of the new U.S. embassy. Alongside the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara Netanyahu, Ivanka announced the opening of the embassy which was revealed by the drop of a curtain. “Today we dedicated the new US Embassy in Jerusalem – a longtime promise to the American and Israeli people,” Ivanka wrote on her Instagram.....In true Ivanka fashion, she donned a pair of pearl earrings to top off...

    Democrats' acknowledgement of the U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem Monday was virtually non-existent. The Times of Israel reported that no Democratic members of Congress attended the ceremony.Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, told them he was “surprised” that “no sitting legislators from his former party were in Jerusalem for the embassy dedication.”“I hope that the Democratic members had [scheduling] conflicts and they had to be somewhere else,” he said. “I hope that they don’t see this as some kind of pro-Trump rally in Jerusalem. It’s not. Its a pro-US-Israel friendship-partnership-alliance rally. And it’s celebrating the strength of our relationship, which has been...

    As the United States Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem is dedicated on Monday, not one Congressional Democrat will be in attendance. Several Republicans from both the House of Representatives and the Senate will be in attendance at the event. A couple of delegations of Congressional Republicans flew to Israel for the event, the Times of Israel reports. "That is a sad, sad manifestation. I wish he’d have every member of Congress here," Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said blaming former President Barack Obama and his relationship with Israeli leadership for no Democrats attending. "I don’t know why the Democrats will...

    At least 41 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and 1,960 others were wounded after protesters converged on the razor wire fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel hours before the U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem. Monday's march was meant to express anger over U.S. Embassy's inauguration. Tuesday is “Nakba” or Catastrophe Day, when Palestinians observe the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding. Moving the embassy from Tel Aviv breaks with decades of Washington policy and distances America from its allies.The protest movement started not with a bullet or a bomb, but with a hashtag. “What if 200,000 demonstrators in a...

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is pushing a peace deal and hyping its possible benefits as Israeli forces use lethal force against Palestinian protesters in Gaza. On Monday alone, Israeli troops killed 16 Palestinians, including a 14-year-old boy and a man in a wheelchair, and some 500 protesters were injured, at least 200 by live bullets. The UN has been investigating Israel's use of force against the Palestinians, of whom more than 60 have been killed since March 30 when the protests started. The Palestinians are protesting what they see as an occupation of their lands by Israel, and...

    The United States is officially opening its Israeli embassy in Jerusalem today, making May 14, 2018 an historic day for the Jewish State of Israel. Other U.S. presidents have made campaign promises to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, only to abandon their promises in deference to the foreign policy establishment and "international" opinion. In moving forward to fulfill his promise to move the embassy to Jerusalem, President Trump ignored the foreign policy establishment and "international" opinion, much as President Harry Truman did when he gave de facto recognition to the newly created State of Israel only eleven minutes after Israel’s proclamation of...

    Four U.S. Senators addressed members of the press at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday morning, hours before the official relocation of the U.S. embassy — and all four were Republicans. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Dean Heller (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mike Lee (R-UT) made the trip, along with ten Republican U.S. Representatives — but not one Democrat joined the U.S. delegation for the embassy event. Only former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) — who was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000 before being rejected by his party in 2006 for his support of the Iraq...

    Preparations are underway for the grand opening of the new United States embassy to Israel in Jerusalem. While the President won’t be able to attend as he prepares for his summit with North Korea, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have arrived to do the honors along with a number of other delegates. But not everyone is quite so thrilled with this development, particularly in some parts of the European Union. They were preparing to put forward a resolution condemning the embassy move, delivering a statement which was explicitly designed to “embarrass and isolate the Trump administration” ahead of the ceremony....
