Israel's Great Present Danger of 2334 Caused By Obama's Administration

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                         
Two faced Obama
The last act Obama did was to show his true colors towards Israel by betraying her at the United Nations (UN) by allowing the passage of a vicious anti-Israel UN Security Council Resolution 2334 to pass.  Up until this hour, Israel had been  the USA's ally at the UN Security Council and looked upon as the USA's friend in other matters as well at the UN.
Obama knew he wasn't running for President and it was a cowardly act, an act of getting even by having to go along with treating Israel as a friend, in my opinion.  What he did by allowing this passage was to abandon Israel in her time of need. He did it then without suffering any repercussions.

Obama's Administration refused to utilize America's Security Council veto power to block a very one-sided measure aimed at delegitimizing Israel.  I remember hearing Obama speak about it on his last day on TV.                                           
Ever since the Old City of Jerusalem took on its current dimensions during the glory days of the Ottoman Empire, it has been divided into four quarters, one each for the most venerable residents of the city: a quarter for the Jews; a quarter for the Christians; a quarter for the Armenian Orthodox; and a quarter for the Moslems. The Jewish Quarter is the second-smallest of the four quarters, and simultaneously its oldest and newest; while this section of Jerusalem has been home to a Jewish population since antiquity, save for the comparatively brief period in which Jews were expelled from the city by Roman authorities, the quarter's architecture dates almost entirely to the late 1960s and early 1970s.
                                           The Resolution 2334
The resolution states that Jewish towns and villages that the UN calls "settlements"because Jewish immigrants since the 1920s moved there which include a quarter in Jerusalem which is the Jewish Quarter and  is now considered OCCUPIED TERRITORY.  
They forget that the first organization, THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS, had a Mandate which was passed creating Israel and was approved unanimously by the Council of the League of Nations of 51 member states.  Then it again passed muster in the United Nations and was created on May 14, 1948 after World War II when the Ottoman Empire lost their empire by being on the side of the Axis countries of Germany and their few friends.
They want to pretend that the  Balfour Declaration never existed, something that came about on November 2, 1917, which was written 100 years ago.  The PA today call the Balfour Declaration a crime.  It opened the door for Jews to legally return to their native land after being ousted by the Romans in the year 70.  Jews had to wait for 1,847 years to get the green light to return.  Even at that they had to wait 30 more years for the Brits to leave Eretz Yisrael to the Jews without their help or gun power because the Brits held a 30 year mandate to rule before turning it over to the Jews.

This new resolution is a barrier to any peace prospects.

1. The resolution can cripple Israel's sovereignty
2. It weakens its borders
3.  Israel is now susceptible to false criminal charges at the International Criminal Court (ICC)
4.The anti-Israel  Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) is given more power through the UN.
    a.  The UN is creating a new blacklist of companies that support or do business with Israel in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.
   b.  UN General Assembly has approved $$138,700 to create a database of such companies.
   c.  UN's Human Rights Council which is so terribly anti-Israel had already approved a creation of the database but needed authority to fund it.

All this is designed to undermine and destroy the one and only Jewish State in the world, ISRAEL.
Until Obama's change of heart, which to me is just exposing where his heart really lay, this is a dramatic shift leaving our strongest regional ally openly exposed and vulnerable. He just gave Hamas and Fatah terrorists a heads up besides possibly an accidental door opening for ISIS.

It has emboldened Israel's enemies as never before.

Israel faces pernicious attacks it wouldn't be facing had this not been stopped in the UN.

It provides diplomatic cover for anti-Israel terrorist groups like Hamas and Fatah.

2334's betrayal against Israel emboldens the PA (Palestinian Authority and other enemies of Israel, encouraging them to now bring charges against Israel at the ICC.

The ICC does not have jurisdiction over Israel.

The ICC has now made the move to re-open an investigation of false news saying that Israeli soldiers committed "war crimes."

2334 must not give power to the ICC of judging independent nations.  Even the USA would be at risk.

Iran has been emboldened by the USA's disastrous nuclear deal and is now testing ballistic missiles which are in violation of the deal.

Some of their missiles are inscribed with the words, "ISRAEL MUST BE DESTROYED."

The ACLJ is for the renewal of sanctions against Iran and are working with Congress to undo this deplorable Iran nuclear deal.
Such a nuclear deal came out of our former administration's weakness.  Secretary of State John Kerry worked so hard to soften the Iranians to make any deal, and so had to speak daily with them to get any deal at all.  This made Kerry weaken during their negotiations, and he caved to almost every Iranian demand.
When the resolution debate was over, the US citizens held as hostages in Iranian prisons for years already were made to wait in a plane on the tarmac in Tehran until the US flew in hundreds of million of dollars in cash to give to the Ayatollahs.  

The USA is just now waking up to the consequences of just such a deal. Finances are shocking! $l.3 billion was paid over 2 days in a cash deal saying it was interest paid in January.  $400 million was paid in cash for something bought in the 70s, said our administration and needed to be paid in full NOW of all times.  13 payments have been made on $99,999.999.99 with the final payment of $10 million.  To me this was paying some sort of ransom for the prisoners.  When prisoners can't leave until money is paid-let's call it what it is; A RANSOM.  Of course, this was denied.  (1)

Also strengthened by how we handled matters, North Korea is spreading its wings and showing their power by putting the world in fear of their lands.  We must remember that North Korea and Iran worked together to gain atomic energy capabilities.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ)  with lawyer Jay Alan Sekulow at the helm is working to stop combat this resolution and its hateful BDS acts around the world.  They are fighting against all the renewed threats against Israel by Iran and their threat of using atomic weaponry against this tiny state.

The ACLJ is intervening in Israel's defense and will continue to fight in support of their national sovereignty if necessary.

                    What Our Congress Is Doing To Counter Obama's Non-Veto of 2334     

Senator Lindsey Graham has introduced to Congress THE SAFEGUARD ISRAEL ACT.

This Act is designed to cut off US funding of the UN until President Trump certifies to Congress that the destructive resolution has been repealed.  

The USA pays for over 1/5th of the total costs of The UN's  price tag of $620 million per year plus $2 billion for UN peacekeeping soldiers per year.

Jay Sekulow met with Senator Graham about this yearly bill, and the ACLJ is mounting a petition campaign throughout our nation in support of this passage.
"We're not going to invest in an organization that singles out the ONLY democracy in the Middle East...We need to punish the United Nations." Sen. Lindsey Graham during his meeting with ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow.  

Israel has been the scapegoat of the UN for the past 8 years and even before that.  It's about time we see a Lindsey Graham AND our new Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, who speak up for Israel when unfairly attacked.

A Retired Teacher Speaks Out Against Kneeling During National Anthem

Nadene Goldfoot
Every day when I taught grades 1 to 4, we started with the Pledge of Allegiance, and then had other little things we did as a morning exercise that was fun before we got into our subject matter.  The children memorized our National Anthem in their music classes and certain holiday festivities.
To learn that football players were perturbed about the high rate of Black arrests that included shootings and thought they would bring the attention of all those watching them by kneeling during the flag salute and anthem  was absolutely startling.  We all stand to honor the flag.

Anyone who becomes a new citizen of this country is obliged to take an oath or sign an agreement about their behavior.

"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law;
and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
Immigrants to the United States take the Oath of Allegiance at a naturalization ceremony at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, September 2016.

  It seems new citizens came here to enjoy a better life, and are the ones who appreciate this country the most.  Are the rest of us taking it for granted?  This country is only 241 years old and it has taken us that long to develop the fairness here we now enjoy compared to past eras.  It may not be perfect as we're all only human, but certainly is an improvement over past days.
1900s saw Europeans arrive as immigrants escaping hard times

The thought came to me that these football players,  who make so much money that it astounds me, and now disavow giving honor to this country, are bringing their people's plight to us in the completely wrong way by kneeling instead of standing.  It's an oppositional move.  It's a hateful move that says they don't stand with this country.  
Riots, burning of city businesses

How is that going to influence me in their people's plight with the law?  They already get plenty of attention in the news when someone is arrested and the reporters think it's possibly unfair. Such acts are talked about on national news, TV and radio.   

We hear about it all the time.  We hear about the statistics of Blacks in jail versus whites, or arrests, or shooting of Blacks.  What these football players want is for this to stop, right?  More attention, negative attention, is not the answer, and especially for their athletic role models  to suddenly stop supporting the country that provides for them.  It's rather like they've just joined the lawbreakers of the country.  They've taken sides against America.   

No, if they want a change in this situation, they need to do something legal to bring about change.  With their money, they could spend some of it in school assemblies about how to follow the law.  They could speak about not stealing, killing, fighting, joining gangs, drinking alcohol beverages, smoking, using drugs, all these things that cause one to bring the attention of the law to them.  They could work on creating programs for children so that they wouldn't be involved with the law.  

Then people would admire them more than just making touchdowns.  They would be admired for doing their utmost for their country and their people.  They would do something that parents and churches and schools usually do for their families that have failed in this present culture.  Role models are needed to present acceptable behaviors, not negative ones.  
Local Catholic high football team kneeling during pledge and anthem.  They know the practice is to stand.  

What they have done is just the opposite.  They are already being copied by children, not in playing better football, but in being defiantly oppositional towards this great country by kneeling during times to stand for our country.  They've just tossed out the window all the lessons teachers try to teach of respecting this country by learning its history.  Children copy behaviors, and at least half the country see this as a disgraceful act.  

Two wrongs do not make a right.  
What are the two wrongs?
1. Getting in trouble with the law.
2. Getting mad at the police for doing their job with lawbreakers.  

Perhaps another thing the football players could do to HELP the situation is to ride with the police as volunteers to see why they have lost tempers that they shouldn't.  What brings on antagonism between police and community?  Prejudice towards Blacks?  Violence against police?  Disobeying directions given by police?  Important athletes such as well known football players are in a position of power already.  There is so much goodness that you could do.  

How can we expect a certain action from new immigrants but not expect it from our citizens.  I've drawn a line here between feeling pride in our country and our actions that I expect to mirror this pride.  We cannot take this action and say we still honor our citizens who fight for this country but not the police by kneeling.  We cannot pick and choose.  We either accept our country with its warts and all or we leave.  Sometimes I'm on the verge, myself, but so far I'm still here, for there is much to admire and it outweighs the warts.

USA's Reaction During National Anthem; Many Causes

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                        
Our 15 star flag from 1795 to 1818
"The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States of America. The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort M'Henry", a poem written on September 14, 1814, by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships of the Royal Navy in Baltimore Harbor during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. Key was inspired by the large American flag, the Star-Spangled Banner, flying triumphantly above the fort during the American victory.
Children in the USA are taught in school to stand when it is played
as a sign of respect to our country and our flag, just as they are taught to put their
right hand over their heart when they say the pledge of allegiance to the flag. 
"The Star-Spangled Banner" was recognized for official use by the United States Navy in 1889, and by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931 which was signed by President Herbert Hoover.
Oh, say can you see,
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed,
At the twilight's last gleaming?…
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket's red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night,
That our flag was still there.
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,For the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
George Washington Crossing the Delaware, fighting for a creation of a USA  in 1776
It doesn't hurt to stand for a 60 second National Song. People are expected to remove their footwear while going into a temple with a friend. The point is, there are somethings which are sacred to others; if by your personal choice you choose to not perform certain acts in certain situations, you will be unknowingly disrespecting the people who believe in that very act.  In India, tons of ritual-residue are dumped into Ganges (the holiest of the rivers in India). The people in the Government see the colossal amount of pollution, but no Government dares to shut down the practice.The analogy shows the expectations of people for respect of something; a belief in something. Our American flag is a representation of our American history with all its greatness and its flaws.  It's us and our belief system.   Do you understand the value of being a citizen of the United States and living under this flag?  
The USA was created by disgruntled people with Britain.  Britain, as usual, took over other countries in order to use their raw materials.  North America was no different ever since 1620 when the Pilgrims sailed dangerous seas and managed to arrive at Plymouth Rock.  It took the growing population 156 years  to throw off the shackles of Britain and stand  on their own feet as a new nation.   Americans with ancestors from this period remember with pride their family members who fought in the Independence of 1776, the battle of 1812.                                            

America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776.

There were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars.
The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.  I was born in 1934.  I remember 1941 and wanting a bicycle, something very hard to come by during that year when WWII started. I thought it would never end.  Newspapers only wrote about how the war was going.                                      
The 10,000th Syrian refugee entering USA
People from all over the world still want to immigrate to our country.  It is the desired place of refuge.   There is a long waiting list.  At the same time, refugees have entered our country for many years now because the Arab Spring has gone into all the other seasons since December 10, 2010. To top that number, we've had illegal immigration going on with people sneaking into the USA from Mexico and Central America, places who do not provide any possible jobs for their people.  All these people seek the freedom provided by the USA.
NFL Players across US kneel during national anthem to protest Trump's feud with the league about lack of patriotism over not standing for national anthem.  This game was in England. They stood for England's national anthem.  
Colin Kaepernick and Erin Reid kneel during National Anthem, 49ers game against Rams on a Monday.  a couple of Rams raised their fists in protest.   They were protesting police discrimination and brutality against Blacks.   Reid explained that when the flag is lowered, it is when someone has died and shows respect, so this is why they decided to kneel.
Our most favorite sports population have decided that the $millions they accept in wages as being such outstanding  athletes is okay, but they are dissatisfied.  They have shown their dissatisfaction by refusing to stand when the national anthem is played as a pre-nationalizing experience to starting their game.  Now 8 year old children playing football are also copying this behavior.  No doubt it is already hitting schools when they do play the anthem or study it in music classes.  
Entire Garfield high school football team is kneeling during their game against West Seattle High.  They are protesting "social injustices."  
This has become a topic of debate that is quite serious at a time our country faces danger from North Korea and Iran.  We are in danger of being hit by some form of atomic warfare if these rogue countries get their way and we are facing big strong athletic men who don't want to stand in public for their country's national anthem.  It's hard for a country striving to be so good to please everyone.  Maybe the high schools will take this debate on in their debating classes.  Is it fit and proper to show your disfavor with things publicly by going against the national expectations of standing for a national anthem?  All countries have one and stand for theirs, too.  What happens in their country if publicly known athletes refuse to follow good form? 
When I was in high school, our  boys in the class year of 1951 didn't get to graduate.  They were all  drafted into the Army or they enlisted in a different force.  We had the Korean War going on.  It started June 25, 1950 and ended July 27 1953.  There was a draft in place during the Korean Conflict.  Between the Korean War's outbreak in June 1950 and the armistice agreement in 1953, Selective Service inducted over 1.5 million men. Another 1.3 million volunteered, usually choosing the Navy or Air Force Congress passed the Universal Military Training and Service Act in 1951 to meet the demands of the war. It lowered the induction age to 18½ and extended active-duty service commitments to 24 months. Despite the early combat failures and later stalemate in Korea, the draft has been credited by some as playing a vital role in turning the tide of war. 

The Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People's Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. ...
 The Korean peninsula is still divided today. North Korea is ruled by a dictator family's only son, Kim Jong-un.  Pyongyang's Foreign Minister says it is now inevitable that their missiles will now hit the USA mainland. This is his response after Trump's calling their leader the Rocket Man.  Trump said it after hearing about their missile tests that are getting greater in distance, reaching for the USA's mainland and army bases.  
When we see our American flag, we should feel pride in our country.  It's a one in a million country.  There is no other like it or with such a history.  It's helped out Europe in WWI and WWII.  It helped Korea and Vietnam.  It's helped Israel.  When you come right down to it, who else do countries go to when in fear of their life?  It's the home of the United Nations.  Do Americans still hold respect for this land of the free and home of the brave?  Do you understand why it is the home, only 241 years old,  of the free and land of the brave with only 45 presidents?

Portland, Oregon-Sanctuary City and What This Means

Nadene Goldfoot                                        

Portland, Oregon is a sanctuary city.  This means the city government refuses to follow the federal government rules for all 50 states about its immigration rules.  They are allowing anyone who has managed to sneak into the country illegally to stay.  Their reasoning seems to benefit the city with supplying it with cheap labor, using their hard earned money to buy products and thus help the economy.  However, they are also a drain on the economy by causing more problems for the educational departments, police more often than imagined, and health fields like the hospitals.  Portland is almost like a swimming pool in a neighborhood without being fenced off for safety.  It's rules allow drugs to be sold legally and is the 5th highest rated city in the USA for fun according to this morning's report. It will not help the federal workers to remove illegal immigrants targeted for emigration by the feds for reasons of criminality.  Did I mention that it's possible the illegals are also voting in elections?  Checks and balances of true citizens that vote may be laxer than hoped for.   

Israel, almost 3,500 years ago started sanctuary cities. "They were places of refuge for the accidental killer.  The relative avenging the murdered kinsman was forbidden to enter the refuge or harm the slayer.  In ancient times down to the period of the monarchy of Kings Saul, David and Solomon, the function was fulfilled by the altar.  Moses set aside 6 special cities of refuge.  The cities were "Golan, Ramoth, and Bosor, on the east of the Jordan River, and Kedesh, Shechem (now Arab Nablus), and Hebron (Biblical Kiriath-Arba) on the western side."The monarchy eventually took over authority to adjudicate such cases.  The Talmud emphasized that they were places for expiation and only operative in cases of contributory negligence.  Sheer accident required no expiation, while grave carelessness could not be adequately atoned for by seeking sanctuary. "
Now the cities in the United States, like Portland, are using their cities as a place of refuge for illegal immigrants.  People from outside our country are expected to enter through the legal channels and give up following their old king, president or whatever and accept USA rules.  By claiming to be a sanctuary city, they feel they are still entitled all the monies coming to them even though they are breaking the law.  They think they can just pick and choose the laws they intend to follow, and should be treated like other cities who follow ALL the federal laws.  It's like how many of us treat our religion.  

Immigrants into the United States are to do it with a Visa. Here's one from India.   If they enter by sneaking in without the Visa, they have entered illegally.  People from Mexico have been doing this for many years.  This is due to lack of jobs in Mexico, among most reasons.

 There are two types of visas: immigrant and non-immigrant. Immigrant visas allow foreign nationals to enter and reside in the U.S. for the long term. Non-immigrant visas are issued for limited periods of time and for specific purposes, such as tourism, business, study, temporary work or medical treatment.  DACA (Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was a special program of President Obama's, a special provision for children. On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.  DACA has allowed 800,000 to come into the USA.  They must have not had a criminal record.  It did not have congressional approval.  The ending of the program would cause them to be expelled from the USA, but could re-enter eventually through legal means.  

There is the legal way to become a citizen of the United States and that is to apply for naturalization after being here for 5 years if you came in legally and had a green card. Most all of our Jewish ancestors were eventually naturalized citizens.  

"Path to U.S. Citizenship

United States lawful permanent residency, informally known as green card, is the immigration status of a person authorized to live and work in the United States of America permanently. Green cards are valid for 10 years for permanent residents, and 2 years for conditional permanent residents. After this period, the card must be renewed or replaced. The application process may take several years. An immigrant usually has to go through a three-step process to get permanent residency that includes petition and processing.
  • Have lived within the state, or USCIS district with jurisdiction over the applicant’s place of residence, for at least 3 months prior to the date of filing the application. Students may apply for naturalization either where they go to school or where their family lives (if they are still financially dependent on their parents).
  • Have continuous residence in the United States as a green card holder for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application
  • Be physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application
  • Reside continuously within the United States from the date of application for naturalization up to the time of naturalization
  • Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).  This means they are to join a class and learn these facts in preparation to becoming a citizen.  
  • Be a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States during all relevant periods under the law"

Illegal Border crossing[edit]

Immigrants from countries that do not have automatic visa agreements, or who would not otherwise qualify for a visa, often cross the borders illegally in some areas like the United States–Mexico border, the Mona Channel between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, the Strait of GibraltarFuerteventura, and the Strait of Otranto. Because these methods are illegal, they are often dangerous. Would-be immigrants have been known to suffocate in shipping containers,[53] boxcars,[54] and trucks,[55] sink in shipwrecks caused by unseaworthy vessels, die of dehydration[56] or exposure during long walks without water. An official estimate puts the number of people who died in illegal crossings across the U.S.-Mexican border between 1998 and 2004 at 1,954 (see immigrant deaths along the U.S.-Mexico border).
Human smuggling is the practice of intermediaries aiding undocumented immigrants in crossing over international borders in financial gain, often in large groups. Human smuggling differs from, but is sometimes associated with, human trafficking. A human smuggler will facilitate illegal entry into a country for a fee, but on arrival at their destination, the smuggled person is usually free. Trafficking involves a process of using physical force, fraud, or deceptionto obtain and transport people.
Types of notorious human smugglers include Snakehead gangs present in mainland China (especially in Fujian) that smuggle laborers into Pacific Rim states (making Chinatowns frequent centers of illegal immigration) and "coyotes", who smuggle undocumented immigrants to the Southwestern United States and have been known to abuse or even kill their passengers.[57] Sometimes undocumented immigrants are abandoned by their human traffickers if there are difficulties, often dying in the process. Others may be victims of intentional killing.  
The question arises:  Can cities get away with only following certain laws and ignoring others?  How about allowing Blacks into public schools.  Can a city ignore this law?  If you allow one city to ignore laws, how can you control other cities to be sure to follow all the laws of the land?  How do you manage to control such a large country as the USA and hope they are all following our basic laws of the land?
In the beginning of our country, it was founded by immigrants, so there were no Visas.  There was no need.  It just needed people from the Western Civilization to establish residence here like those that came first; the Pilgrims in 1620  of Massachusetts and Early English Immigration to New England.  Jamestown, in Virginia, was founded in 1607 and is generally regarded as the first permanent English settlement in North America
St Louis in 1939 when Jews were not allowed anywhere for sanctuary. 
They didn't have baptismal records or Visas. 
900 Jews were on this ship and were turned back to Europe. 
When Jews needed a sanctuary in 1939, they could not find one in any country.  There were still strict laws that all followed about allowing Jews to enter, and their numbers were limited with strict conditions.  They had to have a citizen take full responsibility for them economically.  The country was afraid that they would take jobs away from the established citizens.  
Today, people have the same fears about immigrants.  The country now has a population of 326, 474, 013.  Portland's population is  633,309. 
Oregon's Mexican migrant workers work here half the year and drive to Texas for the rest of the year.  Usually the farmer provides housing. 
In January protesters voiced their opinion.  Notice her scarf.  As gangs wear certain colors, her scarf also says what she is for.
