Trump Admin. Closes PLO Office in Washington

Trump closes PLO terrorist organization. :thumbsup:

Trump Admin. Closes Palestine Liberation Organization Office in Washington



PLO leadership has condemned a U.S. peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the U.S. government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise. As such, and reflecting Congressional concerns, the Administration has decided that the PLO office in Washington will close at this point. This decision is also consistent with Administration and Congressional concerns with Palestinian attempts to prompt an investigation of Israel by the International Criminal Court.

The United States continues to believe that direct negotiations between the two parties are the only way forward. This action should not be exploited by those who seek to act as spoilers to distract from the imperative of reaching a peace agreement. We are not retreating from our efforts to achieve a lasting and comprehensive peace.

This is soooo cool! It was Carter that created this whole mess in the first place, and Trump is the only one with the balls, to end the terrorist connection on US soil. :thumbup:

Pretty sure that we are the only country that pays, houses, feeds, and encourages our mortal enemies.  Until now, anyway.

It really does not take a genius to figure out it is not sane to give $$$$ to entities who are trying to undermine your own interest does it?

PLO Fury as U.S. Set to Shutter Palestinian Embassy in Washington

“We have been notified by a US official of their decision to close the Palestinian mission to the US,” Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) secretary-general Saeb Erekat (pictured) said in a statement.

“This is yet another affirmation of the Trump administration’s policy to collectively punish the Palestinian people, including by cutting financial support for humanitarian services including health and education.”

Just last June, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Jeff Sessions were urged by lawmakers to close the diplomatic outlet, which endorses “flagrant violations” of U.S. law such as payments to terrorists.

In a letter, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) wrote that “the PLO office in the United States has existed and exists today in violation of U.S. law” and cited the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1987 as justification for closing the Palestinian embassy.

“Thirty years ago, Congress found, as part of the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1987 … that the PLO and its affiliates were terrorist organizations threatening the United States,” Cruz and Ros-Lehtinen wrote. “Congress therefore prohibited the PLO, among other things, from establishing or maintaining an office anywhere in the United States.”

The thing I love about hearing good stuff like this, is to hear and read all the babbling from the left, about how they've really got Trump now.

All the while he's just destroying them 24/7, on every front.  They're losing the Obama revolution piece by piece, it's about 90% gone now.  And just stocking up wins for the future, many that will be 30-40 years in duration.

Trump's doing real stuff, the left is just fantasizing 24/7.  But they think their fantasies are really winning.  What a hoot.

Which brings up a couple of questions, What's left to put in the obama libary? and since there is little of obama's time in the white house that will have any long lasting effect, does a library need to be built? A outhouse could hold his legacy with room to spare.       


Maybe build the obama outhouse in San Fransisco and kill two birds with one stone, there is a need and it would get lots of visitors.

Holy Hell - you just planted the greatest idea ever.  Somebody from our side should open up an Obama library.  Just a complete spoof, but of course have a central theme that you described - the disappearing Obama presidency.

Actually it should be "Liberal World".  As big as Wally World.

With many different features, Obama Library being one of them.  You could have the Ted Kennedy car wreck, a kinetic display that shows the whole thing over and over, including Teddy climbing out and shoving Mary Jo back in.  Bill & Hill in Haiti.  Weinstein in Action.  The Weiner Slide.  The Hill-Huma-Bunga-Bunga room.  Barry's Bathhouse Adventure.  American Horror with Maxine-Nancy-Creepy Uncle Joe committing hideous acts of insanity.  The democrat KKK- Jim Crow - Grand Kleagle Adventure.  The FBI Treason Story.

Good, now I wonder if HAMAS still has an office above the Bank of America in Springfield (Virginia) Plaza shopping center?

One float the denizens of Norfolk (pronounced “Norfork” by many locals) saw featured a blue flatbed truck carrying a zombie-looking mannequin in overalls on the door of an outhouse labeled “OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.”

I must say the outhouse did look a little big for b o legacy.  But then remember his wife must get through the door also.
