Trump Needs to Start Building the Embassy in Jerusalem or ‘It Will Never Be Built’

What’s going on?

A lot. President Donald Trump started an international ruckus earlier this month with the simple announcement that the U.S. was officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. That decision is the first step in moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a city that is a source of controversy between Israelis and Palestinians, both of which have laid claim to it.

How is the rest of the world responding?

The United Nations denounced Trump’s decision with a demand that the U.S. rescind its official recognition of Jerusalem. U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley refused to do so, vetoing the U.N. resolution that re-established the view that no country should place an embassy in Jerusalem.

What else should I know?

Vice President Mike Pence had been planning to take a trip to Egypt and Israel, but the trip has been postponed until sometime in mid-January.

The White House said the delay is so Pence can be in Washington in case he needs to be a tie-breaker vote on the GOP’s tax reform bill … and definitely not because of the unrest in the Middle East after Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem. But Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas canceled a planned meeting with Pence after Trump’s address along with Muslim and Coptic Christian leaders in Egypt.

Glenn’s take:

It’s shameful that U.S. allies have not had “the backbone” to stand with America and Israel for the true capital of Israel, but America must do the right thing anyway.

“Please, Mr. President, begin building the embassy or it will never be built,” Glenn said.

GLENN: The United States is the only country in the world willing to stand up for Israel.

Almost two weeks ago, President Trump announced that the U.S. would finally follow its own 22-year-old law by relocating the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s actual capital city of Jerusalem. The announcement brought round-the-clock anger from Middle Eastern Muslim countries and rock-throwing by Palestinians.

Shamefully, none of America’s allies had the backbone to stand with the U.S.

The next move by the angry Arab world was a UN resolution, initiated by Egypt, which did not technically name the U.S. or Trump, but expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.” The resolution called these “decisions” null and void and received approval from the rest of the 15-member Security Council. It also called on all nations not to move their embassies to Jerusalem.

For all the world’s talk about diversity, inclusion, and rooting out all kinds of isms, there is one form of discrimination that still gets unanimous UN approval – anti-Semitism. That is ironic for a “peaceful” international organization that was born out of the ashes of World War II.

So far, the Trump administration is standing firm. Yesterday, for the first time since 2011, the U.S. used its veto power to veto the Security Council resolution. The U.S. has veto power as one of the five permanent members of the Security Council.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said the U.S. used the veto to defend American sovereignty and its commitment to the Middle East peace process. She called the resolution “an insult,” adding that the rest of the Security Council should be embarrassed for supporting it.

Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to travel to the Middle East today, but the trip has been delayed until January, in part because of the Arab world’s temper tantrum. In a shocking development that no one saw coming, Palestinian officials canceled their plans to meet with Pence. Is it just me, or do moves like that from the Palestinians fail to indicate much interest in an actual peace process?

President Trump has not had a great year domestically, but he deserves credit for sticking by Israel when the rest of the world seems to be against them.

Who Is the Real Jesus? | Dallas Jenkins | Ep 103

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller. And he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible. Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God. Glenn and Dallas break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is and paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
