Straight on the heels of the Trump administration’s historic peace deal between Muslim Kosovo and Eastern Orthodox Serbia – a deal that has seen the president nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, Trump’s competent and skillful peace negotiators have achieved yet another great feat toward the goal of a more peaceful world: The Abraham Accords which were signed at the White House today.
Over the last four years, the Trump administration and Jared Kushner have put back-breaking effort into stabilising the Middle East through a peace process with the United Arab Emirates and Israel at its heart.
Trump stated early on in his candidacy as the Republican nominee that he wanted to negotiate a peace deal to help end the Arab-Israeli conflict. But instead of trying to deal directly with the Palestinian Arabs in Gaza – who refuse to recognise Israeli independence and Israeli guardianship of Jerusalem’s holy sites, he focussed on other Arab nations, who not only exhibit slightly broader minds but also have a common enemy in the currently brutal Iranian regime.
Former President Obama’s Iran deal, the JCPOA, was despised by the Sunni Arab nations. Trump vowed to “rip it up” if he became president, and so he did.
When President Trump took the momentous step of moving the U.S embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in 2019, warnings were issued from President Erdogan of Turkey, King Abdullah II of Jordan and senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat that the decision would be “disastrous."
Former Secretary of State John Kerry said it would cause “an absolute explosion in the region.”
Erekat said that the move would mean “the destruction of the peace process as a whole.”
They could not have been more wrong.
On September 4th, 2020, Kosovo and Serbia both agreed to open embassies in Jerusalem as part of their new peace deal.
Today, Bahrain, the UAE and Israel have agreed to normalise relations by exchanging diplomatic embassies in each others’ nations and through mutual trade, technology sharing and an ongoing commitment to further mutual prosperity. This agreement goes way beyond just refraining from hostilities. It is a warm covenant with a view to a much better future for all concerned, but even more than that, it is the Arab nations openly acknowledging Israel’s right to exist as a nation state; it is an acceptance that hostility with Israel is pointless and fruitless.
Outside of Turkey, Israel has the greatest non-petrodollar economy in the region with enormous talent in innovation and technology. They’re well known around the world for their start-up business culture. Now, these markets can be opened up to the Gulf states in a way that was previously not possible. Israel stands to gain new oil markets after relying heavily on trade with the Iraqi Kurds – a wobbly market for them due to ongoing Iranian influence and hegemony.
The wording of the deal itself says “widening the circle of peace,” a reference to the hopeful inclusion of other Arab nations: Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, but also states its goal to be “continuing the efforts to achieve a just, comprehensive and enduring resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
Saudi Arabia’s official position is that they will not sign the accords until there exists a final status agreement for a two-state solution between the Palestinians and Israel, but in the meantime they have opened their air-space for flights between Israel and the UAE to cross over their country.
These accords have been down-played by the hate-Trump media, of course, but that in no way diminishes the monumental achievement that they are in fact.

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
I heard Richard Prebble on the Leighton Smith podcast today parrot the fake news lie about President Trump telling people to inject/swallow bleach as a cure for Covid-19.
“It was only when Trump suggested that people start swallowing bleach that his popularity fell.”
It tripped off Prebble's tongue as if he thought he was on very solid ground in knowing what the hell he was talking about. He doesn’t, on this topic at least. He’s just being a dummy.
So, for all the other dummies out there who think this is true because the fake news media says it is, I’ll explain to you why it was just another hysterical lie made up by Trump’s enemies.
That particular Coronavirus Taskforce press briefing, the origin of where this false accusation against Trump came from, is available for anyone to view for themselves on YouTube.
Bill Bryan, Director of Science and Technology at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was doing research for the Taskforce on the biology of the virus and took the podium to present their recent findings that on surfaces, doorhandles, bench tops etc, the virus was rapidly killed just by exposure to humidity and higher temperatures. But if you “injected” (Bryan's term) UV rays or sunlight "into that” (experiments on virus particles, I assume) the half-life of the virus goes from 6 hours to 2 minutes. He used the term “inject” quite a few times to mean “introduce,” as I don’t see how you can actually inject UV rays or sunlight through a hypodermic needle.
Bryan then explains that his team works with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, to have a droplet of the virus suspended in the air in something like a Home Depot bucket but 4 times the size - to do the aerosol testing (saliva and respiratory fluids) which before then had not been done.
Bryan goes on to say they were testing disinfectants and their ability to kill the virus in seconds - especially bleach and isopropyl alcohol. All of this testing was to prevent exposure and transmission of the virus.
Bryan finishes up and Trump comes to the podium and says while thinking aloud:
“I’ll ask Bill a question that maybe some of you are thinking of, if you’re into this world - because it’s very interesting… Supposing we hit the body with either ultraviolet or just very powerful light.”
Trump then looks over to Bryan and asks:
“And I think you said that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it?”
(Which means they had discussed this before this highly public moment.)
Trump, intimating their earlier conversation, says:
“Then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do, either through the skin or some other way,”
- again Trumps looks over to Bryan and asks:
“And I think you said you’re going to test that too? It sounds interesting.”
Then Trump continues this spitballing style with Bryan in the room with the press pool and says:
“And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute [the virus] and is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because it [the virus] gets on the lungs and does a tremendous number on the lungs. It would be interesting to check that, you’re going to have to use medical doctors… but it sounds interesting to me.”
That was it.
So Trump asks the Director of Science and Tech a question about potential new ways to kill the virus (not only on surfaces) and it was spun the next day into different variations of:
"Trump told Americans to inject or swallow bleach, lysol and other household disinfectants!"
Pure fake news. No such thing was said. Anyone can check the whole thing out for themselves in the context of the ideas being thrown around the room.
What Trump actually said was so unobjectionable that even the press pool, who mostly hate his guts and do nothing but try to play professional “gotcha” everyday - barely batted an eyelid about it for the next 35 minutes of intense questioning.
In fact, the press pool were strongly engaged in trying to show how stupid he was for encouraging people to spend a bit of time outside in the sunshine.
This pathetic question came from an unpleasantly nasal journalist who sounds as though his nuts have never dropped, and it illustrates the gotcha-game in play perfectly:
“Mr. President, after the presentation we just saw about the heat and the humidity, is it dangerous for you to make people think they’re safe by going outside in the heat considering so many people are dying in Florida and considering this virus has had an outbreak in Singapore, places that are hot and humid?”
Trump gets pretty tetchy and sarcastically retorts in his amusing way:
“Here we go. The new headline is 'Trump asks people to go outside - that’s dangerous!' Here we go... same old group. Are you ready? I hope people go outside and enjoy the sun and if it has an impact, that’s great.”
Trump then looks over to his medical science team, and as if taking the piss in a black-comedic public parody says:
“I would like you to speak to the medical doctors to see if there is any way to apply light and heat to a cure - maybe you can maybe you can’t, I don’t know. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a person who has a good.. you know what...”
... and he points to his head.
At no time did he remotely “encourage people to drink, swallow or ingest bleach,” and at no time did he encourage people to "inject disinfectant into their bodies."
However, the next day was not the headline Trump had sarcastically predicted it might be.
The headline from Nancy Pelosi’s Twitter account was:
Mr. President, drinking bleach and injecting Lysol won't make it disappear.
Joe Biden tweeted out:
I can’t believe I have to say this, but please don’t drink bleach!
Joe didn’t need to say that, but we know dementia patients are prone to mindless ejaculations.
The whole world media then went mad, because they’re instructed to, as they’ve done so many times before when they are told that Trump has said or done something egregiously objectionable. They nod and obey.
Remember how abandoning the Kurds in Syria was going to create a mass genocide?
Remember how the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani was going to immediately ignite WWIII?
Remember when the killing of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi was going to severely upset the Muslims? (Whereas the assassination of Usama Bin Laden, by Obama, would somehow not illicit a response.)
Remember how moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was going to “cause an absolute explosion” and ruin peace in the Middle East for all time?
This “Trump said drink bleach" bullshit was only ever a dirty little Democrat tactic, a filthy lie, concocted and sprayed out of every single news orifice known to man in order to make Trump look foolish.
And here in this country at the bottom of the world, we have “thoughtful” folks, like Prebble - well educated, well travelled, well informed and yet repeating this kind of on the fly, cheap bullshit on a podcast as if it’s the gospel truth.
The really odd thing is that we still use chlorine to disinfect our town water supplies, which means most of us actually do ingest disinfectant every single day of our lives and we give it to our babies and children - and nobody gives a stuff.

It is cringeworthy to watch the world media slobber every time Jacinda Ardern lifts her little finger. But they did exactly the same thing when former-President Obama was in office. The world’s Main Stream Media gave both leaders sainted status, which ought to be no surprise considering that both Obama and Ardern hold an almost identical ideology, which most of the MSM also hold.
That ideology is communism – and like all serious communist activists, they cloak themselves in the disguise of being mild and non-threatening socialists. Effectively what you have then is nothing less than wolves who govern in the clothing of sheep; they’re cunning, disingenuous and profoundly impression-management conscious, taking great care to flash phoney smiles when they talk, smiles which are often incongruent with the seriousness of the topics under discussion. They’re trained to master keeping their tone “nice” and “upbeat,” all the while decidedly reshaping the world after their horribly anti-Western agendas.
It was the philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand who made the point that socialism is the close cousin of communism. She wrote:
“There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism—by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.”
Obama’s speciality was to stoke the fires of racial disharmony in his own country. It could have been so great if he, as the first Black American President, could’ve exhibited the character development not to have done this.
But alas, he never missed an opportunity to make highly public statements on black boys or black men who had been killed by a cop or a white man – even if the cop or white man happened to be acting in self defense.
Knowing that America leans toward extreme sensitivity over the issue of race, a wiser president would’ve made the point over and over that skin colour has no bearing on anything and as an issue, is nothing if not bloody passé. While indulging gratuitously in his brand of racial hyperbole, it cannot be ignored that Obama accomplished next to nothing when it came to actually improving the lives of African Americans during his 8-year presidency.
In the wake of Black Lives Matter activism reaching an emboldened fever-pitch, this fact has come back to haunt Obama’s legacy in spades, as untold black people now cross camps into the Republican party and proudly plan on voting Trump in record numbers this November.
This is because Trump didn’t rely on talking-up his desire to help the black community, he went and acted for them by introducing comprehensive prison reform – the First Step Act (leniency for minor, first-time offences) and official pardons for gross injustices such as in the case of Alice Johnson. He also eliminated the practice of women giving birth inside prisons while chained to a hospital bed – many of whom were black women – unbelievably, Obama decided to look the other way on this one.
The best thing Trump has done for the black community, so far, was to champion school choice for low-income families, giving them access to scholarships and generous tax credits to be able to send their kids to a private school of their own choosing instead of having to suffer their kids attending the crap government school around the corner.
Also in education, Trump restored funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs); traditional and respected institutes of higher learning for the black community since the end of slavery in the 19th Century. Obama allowed for their funding to expire.
The second best thing Trump did for the national black community was overhauling the tax system and providing Opportunity Zones in underprivileged neighbourhoods resulting in $75 billion worth of investments and mentorship programmes.
Black conservative activist Candace Owens has been mega-phone vocal in her support of Trump and made the point often that the Democrat Party, as it did during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, still fights to keep American blacks controlled “on the plantation.”
But the most amusing and surprising person to have watched be red-pilled regarding the black community is Leo Terrell. A civil rights attorney and a staunch Democrat whose hatred for Trump was palpable, suddenly did an about turn this year and has become the most passionate Trump supporter. The reason for this is simple – he was paying attention after the high profile death of George Floyd when the protesting turned into rioting, looting and violence spreading all over American cities while the Democrats took great pains to not condemn the violence which overwhelmingly harmed black Americans, especially with their ludicrous call to defund the police.
In a heated exchange back in June on Fox News show Hannity, Terrell calls far-Left black activist Cornell West, “a dinosaur,” and West appallingly calls Terrell, “negro.”
In this coming election, Trump is hoping to win a significant percentage of the black voting electorate, in comparison to the modest 8 per cent he won back in 2016.
To this very day, Obama, who has gracelessly not observed the gentlemanly presidential tradition of not making public criticisms of the incumbent president, continues his well-rehearsed, racist rhetoric, but can never compete in reality with Trump’s tangible, active achievements in support of black America.
