President-elect Donald Trump said on Thursday he will nominate bankruptcy attorney David Friedman as U.S. ambassador to Israel, and Friedman said he looked forward to taking up his post in Jerusalem, implying a move from Tel Aviv that would mark a break in longstanding U.S. foreign policy and anger the Muslim world. While campaigning for the presidency, Trump pledged to switch the embassy from Tel Aviv, where it has been located for 68 years, to Jerusalem, all but enshrining the city as Israel’s capital regardless of international objections.
Paris is seeking more time to organize the summit, Israel’s Channel 10 news reported. What that really means is they are seeking to “trump up” (pun intended) a better case against Israel’s continued “occupation” of the West Bank. With Trump leading the charge to move the US embassy to Israel, the European faction of the western New World Order needs to make a stronger case.
WARS & RUMORS THEREOF
Thousands of civilians and rebels are still waiting to leave the last remaining rebel-held pockets of eastern Aleppo under an evacuation deal that will allow Syria’s government to take full control of the city after years of fighting. The operation launched on Thursday and is expected to take several days.
US & GLOBAL ECONOMY
British bank branch closures are continuing apace, according to the BBC.
New research by Which, the leading UK consumer organization, has shown that 1,045 branches have closed in the last two years — HSBC closed 27% of its branches, while Lloyds closed 14%. The smaller Co-operative Bank closed a whopping 53% of its branches.
Banks say they are closing branches because people are using them less, in favor of digital banking. HSBC said that branch visits are down by 40%, with 93% of customers now making contact with the bank via phone calls, the internet, or smartphone, according to the BBC. Lloyds, meanwhile, plans to speed up its branch closure program in 2017 due to fewer customers visiting its branches in person.
The New World Order is steadily moving the global population to an even worse fiat currency than the pieces of paper they give us that secure their debts to each other. But more importantly, this new fiat currency, the digital currency, will ultimately lead to us being required to be RFID chipped in order to do our banking. While I do not believe the RFID chip is itself the mark of the Beast, I do believe that there will be an agreement – explicit or implicit – that the people with the chips inserted will understand that sharia banking is a part of the deal. It will be via the new sharia banking that the Beast will attempt to make us part of his system.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest hit back at senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway after she accused him of making inappropriate comments in stating that Trump encouraged Russian hacking of his political opponents.
“It is just a fact that the Republican nominee for president was encouraging Russia to hack his opponent because he believed it would help his campaign,” Earnest told reporters Thursday. The real issue here is that the Democrats and Obama can’t believe that Americans chose someone other than them! It “had to be” an outside influence!
ISLAM & NEW WORLD ORDER
The groups said it underscored “the importance of a full and non-discriminatory implementation of all aspects”, in a statement that mainly focused on migration and the Cyprus issue. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said late Thursday that Turkey would use a backup plan if the EU did not fulfill its commitments to provide aid for refugees in his country. The EU and Turkey both want and need each other. Together, I believe they will become the foundation of the Gog-Magog alliance that will add other nations to itself such as Iran.
