Someone tell Obama — real leadership is NOT done ‘from behind’.
After decades of kicking that can down the road and Presidents promising to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital but never following through on that promise, Trump took a stand.
This isn’t the kind of ‘courage’ that thrilled Obama and Michelle, and got people an invite to the White House.
Nor is it the alleged ‘courage’ of a mediocre twilight-of-his-career basketball player announcing that he had joined the LGBT parade. (Was he a ‘household name’ before that day? After? I’m guessing ‘no’.)
Real courage is doing the Right thing, even when your peers, or friends, are afraid to stand with you. Better yet, when they openly oppose you.
It looks like this:
It also looks like this:
Did you happen to SEE the UN vote where all these other countries specifically condemned the US for making a decision they have no authority to oppose? Even our so-called ‘closest allies’ (we’re looking at you, UK!)
And even our ‘friends’ only ‘abstained’.
No WONDER Israel bestowed such an unprecedented honor on our President.
Well, that was then. What’s happened since?
Now we have a President taking a stand — leading the charge, or ‘leading from the front’, as it were — others have been emboldened to join him.
Courage is contagious. When someone is the first to stick his neck out, others will be emboldened to do the same.
Jimmy Morales has announced his embassy is moving to Jerusalem.
Dear people of Guatemala, today I spoke with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. We are talking about the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel.
One of the most important topics was the return of the embassy of Guatemala to Jerusalem.
So I inform you that I have instructed the chancellor to initiate the respective coordination so that it may be.
God bless you.
It’s not just Guatemala, either.
“Other countries will recognize Jerusalem and announce the relocation of their embassies. A second country did it, and I repeat it: There will be others, it’s just the start, and it’s important,” Netanyahu said in a statement Monday, according to The Times of Israel, which also quoted Hotovely as saying the ministry was “in contact with at least 10 countries, some of them in Europe.”
But of course, there is a backlash. (Isn’t there always, when Israel is involved?)
Here is just one example among many:
Tens of thousands of Indonesians marched through the capital Jakarta on Sunday to protest against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
It was the largest protest in Indonesia since Trump’s controversial move earlier in the month, reversing decades of US policy.
Trump is not a ‘conventional politician’. Which is why the establishment hates him. And so many ordinary folks love him.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
