    DES MOINES — The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday on Gov. Terry Branstad’s nomination to be ambassador to China.

    President Trump on Thursday said he plans to nominate former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as ambassador to New Zealand.

    Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday night that he “expects to see the U.S. Embassy at its new location in Jerusalem soon”. The comment came on the heels of a factfinding mission by two Republican senators to Jerusalem last weekend. The members of the House Subcommittee on National Security affirmed during the trip, which included scouting locations for the embassy, that President Donald Trump would not veto the Jerusalem Embassy Act when it comes up for review again in May. Liberman and Pence met at the White House during Liberman’s short visit to Washington...

    Hillary Clinton’s rendezvous with scandals during her tenure as Secretary of State has refused to subside yet again – this time linking her and the Clinton Foundation to a donor who allegedly has ties to Hezbollah. When the latest batch of emails sent and received from Clinton’s private email server were released this month, the Democratic presidential nominee faced backlash as they were compared with the portions of her daily schedules released from her time as Secretary of State. A report from the Associated Press found that more than half of Clinton’s meetings or phone calls with government outsiders were...
  • Behind Trump's Plan to Move the US Embassy From Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

    Israeli officials are awaiting what could be one of the first announcements from the new Trump administration: a decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Such a move, which Trump repeatedly promised on the campaign trail, may please many Israelis but anger Palestinians as well as officials in Arab nations, who could see it as directly provocative and a hindrance to future peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. Palestinians claim Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, and Trump, like the Israeli government, views Jerusalem as Israel’s “eternal capital.” Since Israel’s creation, the...

An Israeli news outlet earlier reported an anonymous source as saying the announcement on America's embassy moving from Tel Aviv would be made by a member of Trump administration on Monday.

    Organization of Islamic Cooperation rejects actions that could undermine PA's ability to claim Jerusalem for a state. Foreign ministers from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Thursday indirectly condemned plans by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to move the embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, reports The Associated Press. A statement issued after a meeting in Kuala Lumpur did not specifically mention the United States or Trump by name, but said the OIC rejected any actions that could undermine the ability of Palestinian Arabs to claim part of Jerusalem in a future state. It also called on governments...

    Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem as per President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise is a “provocation” that would result in “serious consequences,” France warned at Sunday’s peace summit in Paris. Foreign ministers from around 70 nations gathered in Paris Sunday in an attempt to urge Israeli and Palestinian leaders to recommit to the so-called two-state solution. Representatives from the United Nations, European Union, Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation were also in attendance. However, neither Israel nor the Palestinians had any representation at the conference.

    PARIS — Diplomats from more than 70 countries called Sunday for the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state and urged Israel and Palestinians to restart direct negotiations. In their joint declaration at the conclusion of a Mideast conference here, the envoys urged Israel and the Palestinians to restate their commitment to the goal of two states living side by side in peace and security. The representatives, including Secretary of State John F. Kerry, also warned that continued acts of violence and the building of Jewish settlements in the West Bank needed to stop. The two-page closing statement was meant to...

    Consistent with Trump's campaign position that it belongs there If they follow through, this would be almost as powerful a response to Obama, Kerry and the UN’s Israel-haters as defunding and pulling out of the UN entirely - which is not to say the one should obviate the other. If you ask me, we should do both. But this appears to be the first serious attempt in Washington to have the location of our embassy reflect our official belief that Jerusalem is, in fact, Israel’s rightful capital

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was "finally time" to move the embassy. “Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration's vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth - let alone the reality...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday warned of “serious implications” if U.S. President-elect Donald Trump follows through with his election promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. "Moving the embassy will have serious consequences not only for the Palestinian people, but also for the legitimacy of the entire international struggle against the occupation," he told a visiting delegation from the leftist Meretz party, according to Army Radio. At the same time, Abbas said he does not believe that Trump would actually follow through with the move. "We are acting with patience and...

He has spent time with Peyton Manning and Joe Namath, and on Saturday, he was paid a visit by President-elect Donald Trump during the second half of the Army-Navy game in Baltimore. Lundquist’s longtime partner in crime, color commentator Gary Danielson, came prepared with an “important question” for the next president of the United States, beginning the in-booth interview with Trump with a question that set off a humorous exchange for Lundquist’s final college football game.

    As Donald Trump begins to staff his administration, his appointees should understand how deeply the ideologically-driven LGBTs have burrowed into permanent jobs in the permanent bureaucracy and how dangerous they are.The new political appointees should also understand how this group and their allies have driven those who may disagree with their agenda either underground or from the federal bureaucracy altogether, and some even to jail.And they should understand that this group is entrenched and determined not to give an inch in the territory they have gained under the incredibly radical Obama administration.The LGBT cadres had already made great strides...
