HIDDEN HOLY LAND II

TTPers overlooking Jerusalem – April 2018

TTPers overlooking Jerusalem – April 2018

TTP and Wheeler Expedition’s The Hidden Holy Land in April was such a smashing success that so many of you have asked – Can you do this again, and soon?

We are happy to comply – Hidden Holy Land II will be this October:  October 8 to 18.

If there is one place on more TTPers’ bucket lists than any other, it’s the birthplace of the two founding religious traditions of Western Civilization, Judaism and Christianity.

You could spend a lifetime in the Holy Land and not see it all, for under every rock there’s 4,000 years of extraordinary history.  Yet millions of visitors come here and see so little.

They go to the famous places, take a lot of pictures, hear a lecture most of which they forget once they’re back home, and that’s about it.  Israel, the Holy Land?  Yeah, been there, done that.

So how about doing it for real?  That means:

*Experiencing all those famous places to get an in-depth understanding of what actually happened there and why.

*Experiencing places you never heard of, yet are equally fascinating.

*Experiencing Israel on a personal level, making friendships that last a lifetime with people who live here.

*Gaining a revelatory grasp of modern Israel that’s deeper than has anyone you know.

*Having all of this sink into your bones so you never forget it as long as you live.

Isn’t that what’s on your bucket list?

CELEBRITY TRUMP HATRED IS BECOMING TREASONOUSLY DERANGED

cry-baby-de-niro

That’s because I’m treasonously deranged

Robert De Niro marched onto last Sunday night’s Tony Awards show stage like a man possessed, exuding raw fury and menace from every pore.

If you could morph his most violent, unhinged on-screen characters into one smoldering carcass of molten human hatred and ferocity, then this was that hybrid beast.

And he was intent on unleashing a verbal weapon of mass destruction at the man he despises more than life itself: Donald J. Trump.

The 74-year-old tuxedo-clad thespian stood at the microphone for several long, lingering, intense seconds, driving the Broadway audience to whoops of expectant excitement.

‘I’m gonna say one thing,’ he snarled.

WHO KNEW TRUMP IS A FOREIGN POLICY GENIUS?

Ntrump-and-kim-agreementobody knew.  None of us saw it.  Among his biggest supporters, maybe a handful suspected it.

Many of us expected the economic renewal of the U.S. to happen.  Many of us foresaw a significant roll back of Saint Barack's horrid, destructive agenda.   A lot of us hoped for a major push back on the Left.

All of which we have gotten.

None of us expected Donald Trump to be a giant in foreign policy.  No one expected him to reshape the world.  Yet Donald Trump, in a short time, is doing so.  We have not seen a better, more fruitful, and more capable foreign policy than this administration since the great Ronald Reagan.

Here are some of President Trump’s accomplishments – less than half way into his first term.  They are simply astounding – to America’s great benefit, to the great dismay of the Left.

OBAMA’S SILENCING OF INSPECTOR GENERALS

not-a-smidgen-of-corruptionDepartment of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, an Obama Administration appointee, is scheduled to deliver a report this afternoon (6/14) on DOJ and FBI abuses during the 2016 campaign cycle.

Remember: His last investigation of FBI misconduct advised a criminal referral for fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who allegedly lied to federal investigators.

McCabe and at least a half-dozen other FBI employees quit, retired, were fired, or were reassigned as a result of fallout from the politicization of the FBI.

Yet, as Barack Obama left office, his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, strangely boasted that the Obama Administration “has been historically free of scandal.” Obama himself recently concluded of his eight-year tenure, “I didn’t have scandals.”

That’s because the Obama Administration succeeded in covering up its non-stop scandals by waging a veritable war against the watchdog inspectors general of various federal agencies.  Here’s the record.

THE AGEING OF THE DAWN OF AQUARIUS IN EUROPE

aquarius When every last Trudeau eyebrow has been scraped off the floor of the Manoir Richelieu, it's worth remembering that the divisions in the G7 are not quite as straightforward as the media would have us believe. For one thing, it's not G6 vs. Trump, for there's another disrupter in town:

trump-tweet-060918 And how about this for getting it right?  For the first time since the "humanitarian crisis" began five years ago, the Italian government has closed its ports to a migrant vessel: The MV Aquarius, operated by SOS Mediterranée and Médecins Sans Frontières, was refused permission to dock in Sicily, and told to push off and find somewhere else.

As the London Economist sniffed (6/12):  Italy Refuses to Let a Boat Full of Migrants Land. After all, what could be more heartwarming than an NGO rescue ship named after a song from Hair?

ARE US ENVIRONMENTALISTS BEING BRIBED BY CHINA AND RUSSIA TO SUPPORT THEIR POLLUTION?

the-dealTwo of the world’s biggest polluters are China and Russia.

You would think that U.S. environmental groups would be major critics of these countries; yet, the reality is some take money from entities controlled by these governments and disseminate their propaganda.

Over the last several years, many articles have been written (including mine on TTP here, here, and here) documenting how Russian groups funneled money into U.S. environmental organizations, which, in turn, was used to oppose fracking in the U.S. and the construction of new pipelines.

The environmental groups used the Russian monies to lobby against U.S. consumers and support their Democrat allies.

This past week (6/05), the Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations wrote a six-page letter to the president of a major environmental group — the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) — asking for information regarding its relationship with the Chinese government.

It looks like the Chinese are copying the Russians with bribes to environmentalists to support their pollution.

HALF-FULL REPORT 06/08/18

Welcome to the Hahahahahah! HFR.  I cannot recall a week that has brought me so many belly-laughs as this one.  I think you’ll agree.

Let’s, however, pull some heartstrings first.  On Wednesday (6/06), President Trump commuted the life sentence with no parole for Alice Marie Johnson, who was in her 21st year of federal prison.  Here she is greeted by her family upon her release:

 

She expresses nothing but thankfulness and gratitude, looking at the television cameras to say “God bless America.”  In an interview with the Associated Press, she said:
"I'd like to say, President Trump, thank you for having mercy upon me. Thank you for taking the time to look at my case, and feel like I deserve a second chance in life. I promise I will not let you down."
Okay, ready to laugh your head off?  Here we go…

WHERE’S THE LEFT’S HORSE?

It’s one of the most terrifyingly memorable scenes in all motion pictures.  If you’ve ever seen The Godfather, the 1970 original, you’ve never forgotten it.

The Godfather’s consigliore goes to see a famous movie producer about a movie role for his godson.  This is what happens:

 

In a subsequent scene, it’s casually mentioned in passing that the godson got the role.

I was prompted to recall this by the events of the last several days.  You can prod and prod and prod someone until they finally snap and can’t take it anymore.  Everyone has their limit and I have reached mine.  I want to know where the Left’s horse is.

DEMOCRATS’ IT SCANDAL SET TO EXPLODE

trump-tweet-060718 No wonder the President was so upset he tweeted this earlier today (6/07).  He was reminded how bad this scandal is when he saw Luke Rosiak’s latest report on it in The Daily Caller Wednesday (6/05):  Wasserman Schultz Screamed At House Officials To Kill Hacking Probe.

The woman is terrified and for good reason.

The curious case of Imran Awan, which sounds like an international spy thriller, is entering its third act. Awan was a congressional IT aide to Florida Dem Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer.

Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. A plea agreement hearing is set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Theft of congressional equipment, massive data breaches of Congress members’ emails, massive espionage and more are all wrapped up in this case that involves data from 40 or more Democrat members of Congress.  After endless delays, we may have explosive traction.
