    Putting America FIRST!!?? . I expect an AIPAC rep will be sent to have a quiet word to make sure he understands the real priority.

      “Putting America FIRST!!??”

      That’s the kind of slogan which could fly the Atlantic single-handed!

        And then some; Lindbergh flew more than 50 combat missions against the Japanese in the Pacific region:

        Roth, anticipating the military draft, joined the US Army in 1955. He was discharged soon thereafter, apparently due to a back injury suffered in basic training. Trump? I forget, didn’t he avoid military, apparently due to bone spurs on his feet? Some folks have easier access to a doctor’s slip than others…

      Maybe he’ll put America first the same way he’ll remain neutral on I-P. ;-)

        “Maybe he’ll put America first the same way he’ll remain neutral on I-P. ;-)”

        Maybe he’s never given it a single goddam thought, or an hour of study or consideration. Maybe he just parrots the last person he talked to who impressed him. Or espouses whatever gets the crowd going.
        Maybe he has never had any political, let alone foreign policy or diplomatic experience, and doesn’t have a freakin’ clue!

        Trump likely has political experience in getting municipal building permits.

    Israel is already taking advantage of Trump as POTUS, annexing more land!.

      @Citizen

      No they aren’t.

      They are stealing land.

      Israel has never legally annexed a single square inch of territory. A rogue state stealing land is all it is.

        Legally? The French version says “the settlements” but the English version just says “settlements,” which is read by Zionists as only applying to ban some settlements, not others, which, they say, are disputable, to be the subject of negotiations between the parties in terms of land swapping. US is, of course, the honest broker between the two equally powerful negotiators. BTW, wasn’t it the French who gave Israel the bomb?

        “Dabakr” is fluent in mutter. Standing in a corner, hands working in his pants pocket, looking daggers at everyone, and muttering.

    Before Trump can pledge to put America first he needs to weed out the majority in Government that keep putting Israel first and he will need to declare AIPAC a Foreign Agent and shut it down.

      The only thing Trump has pledged to do about Israel is move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

        Well it’s no surprise squeaky clean Trumpers have joined the epitome of hygeine,Israel. We well know how fastidious Israeli’s are about cleanliness……They ethnic cleanse every day.

    Carlos, I have shared this cartoon with all my family.
    I posted it to my Facebook wall.
    I also posted it to many people on Twitter including the man himself.

    the protest marches The Day After, are awe-inspiring, not forgetting the solidarity marches around the world. http://a.abcnews.com/images/Politics/GTY-womens-march-washington-4-jt-170121_12x5_1600.jpg

    It looks like more people showed up for protest than showed up for inaugural.

    It so happens that the weekly Torah portion read on Saturday, just as Trump was getting started , is from Exodus and includes this verse :

    ” Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who knew not Joseph” (Exodus 1:8)

      “It so happens that the weekly Torah portion…”

      B.F.D. I’m sure you got a kick out of it.
