NYT Op-Ed Liberals You’re Not As Smart As You Think And You’re Helping Trump Win A Second Term

Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly confident in themselves, self-righteous in their beliefs, which come off as “domineering” and “smacks of superiority.” You can see how this isn’t the best sales pitch, right? It’s only compounded by the fact that the Left, confident in their moral superiority, has gone so far outside the mainstream in what is actually racist or problematic that they feel everyone else who hasn’t caught up should be shamed, humiliated, and torched by the social justice warrior mafia. 

It’s not that I’m out of touch; it’s that everyone else is wrong. That’s the mantra with this sad cadre of left-wingers. Conservative America doesn’t stand for this crap, and neither should they. For every one voter this progressive mob absorbs, two more either head for the Trump camp or are so turned off that they stay home on Election Day. It’s one thing to call the remarks about black Americans made by celebrity chef Paula Deen racist (it was) years ago. It’s another thing to label 60 million people who voted for Trump racist. The silver lining is that Democrats from the Rust Belt don’t take too kindly to this; Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) has voiced her frustration when she hears this liberal taking point. 

It’s cyclical. Conservatives ate some humble pie in 2012. Liberals did too, though they’ve failed to realize why. They’re still angered over Lady Macbeth’s loss. Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate. Like Romney with Republicans, some within the party knew this. She had no economic message, no charisma, seemed horribly inauthentic, and decided to call half the country deplorable towards the tail end the 2016 campaign.

With 60 Killed In Gaza UN Rights Commissioner Criticizes Israel

A Palestinian demonstrator reacts as others run from tear gas fired by Israeli forces during a protest marking the 70th anniversary of Nakba, at the Israel-Gaza border in the southern Gaza Strip.

One day after Israeli forces fired on protesters and killed 60 Palestinians along the Gaza border, the U.N.'s Human Rights Commissioner says that those who were shot include women, children, journalists, first responders and bystanders.

"We condemn the appalling, deadly violence in Gaza yesterday," said Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

While acknowledging that some Palestinian demonstrators tried to damage the barbed wire fence that separates Gaza from Israel, Colville said that in the commissioner's view, attempts to cross or damage a fence "do not amount to a threat to life or serious injury and are not sufficient grounds for the use of live ammunition."

Lethal force, he said, should only be a measure of last resort.

55 Palestinian Protesters Killed, Gaza Officials Say, As U.S. Opens Jerusalem Embassy THE TWO-WAY 55 Palestinian Protesters Killed, Gaza Officials Say, As U.S. Opens Jerusalem Embassy

The violence exploded on Monday, as Israel celebrated the U.S. move of its embassy to Jerusalem – a city that's claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians, and whose status has long been regarded by America's biggest allies as an issue best resolved in multilateral peace talks. The U.S. has formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital – another step it had long avoided taking.

At least 40,000 Palestinians gathered to protest, according to an estimate from the Israel Defense Forces – which says "Hamas is coercing Gazans to risk their lives." More protests are expected on Tuesday.

The military dropped leaflets in the area, telling people to stay away from the security fence on the eastern half of the Gaza Strip. The Defense Forces have accused Iran of giving $100 to people who will approach and attempt to harm the Gaza barrier.

Israeli forces responded to the large gatherings at or near the fence with tear gas, plastic bullets and live ammunition. Protester

Judge Jeanine Pirro Trump sends the world a message in recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital

We are at a truly historic moment in Israel's history, one that is cause for great celebration. Not only has President Donald Trump chosen to withdraw from the disastrous Obama Iran nuclear deal, but we are on the eve of the momentous opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem – a move that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a move greatly appreciated by the people of Israel. 

President Trump's pullout from the Iran deal, although expected, became a virtual certainty when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proved through Israel's intelligence agency Mossad that Iran had been lying to the world as it continued to enrich uranium and develop nuclear weapons. Iranian documents uncovered by that same intel agency are proof positive that Iran lied. Iran? Lie? Shock.

On Tuesday, the day of the withdrawal, bomb shelters opened up in the Golan Heights and the Israeli army was on high alert as Israel braced for imminent attack.

In Israel, as we proceeded from Haifa to the Golan Heights, there were no sirens. School buses and taxis continued to run. In Tiberias at night, we heard the undeniable sound of rockets. At breakfast, we found out that that indeed there had been an Iranian rocket offensive toward Israel from inside Syria. Israel responded with strategic precision, targeting Iranian munitions storage warehouses, logistics headquarters and intel systems within its proxy Syria. Israel does what Israel needs to do.

On Saturday, Iranians marched against the United States, protesting President Trump's decision to withdraw from their nuclear deal. Maybe they should consider protesting that the $150 billion Obama gave them in cash wasn't used to benefit them, but instead to support both Iran’s nuclear development as well as its military budget which has grown by almost 40 percent.

Obama's Iran deal destroyed 70 years of bipartisan U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. His delusional deal abandoned Israel and Egypt, the largest Arab country, and alienated the Sunni Muslims in the moderate Arab states, guaranteeing they would face a nuclear Iran.

Iran, the leading state sponsor of terror, exports dangerous missiles and supports terrorist proxies and militias like Hezbollah, Hamas, and the
