Cool-hand Trump vs war-hawk Dems From the looks of it, Trump is the only cool hand in a roomful of hotheads; namely Democrats for whom a Cold War is good, but a Hot War would be better.

Jerry Brown, says you can be thrown into prison for 12 months for failing to use the correct transgender pronoun….we are way beyond politics and into genuine madness.

The impending embassy move’s effects on Israeli, Palestinian ties with U.S. “I put the word out that I may do it. I was hit by more countries and more pressure and more people calling, begging me, ‘Don’t do it. Don’t do it,’” Trump said. “I said we have to do it. It’s the right thing to do. We have to do it. And I did it.” Initially, US ambassador David Friedman and a small staff will set up their offices in the existing American consular building in the Arnona neighborhood in west Jerusalem.
