Trump Will Sign As Many As 200 Executive Orders on MondayPresident-elect Donald Trump will sign as many as 200 executive orders on Monday, Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Wednesday night.

The Fox News judicial analyst said Trump will likely target a wide range of Obama administration policies including on immigration, the environment, and guns.

“On the executive orders, he told me he expected to be signing 200 orders on Monday,” Napolitano said. “He will decide what he needed to sign on Friday.”

There are a handful that he will likely sign his first day in office, however.

“He’s got a few of them, probably in the area of four to five, that we’re looking at on Friday,” said incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. “Some of it is logistical things that you have to do in terms of government operations. Then there are some other ones that I expect him to sign with regards to some other issues that have been on his priority list.”

As far as the approach Trump will take to executive actions, Napolitano said he will “level the playing field.”

“His philosophy, level the playing field, get rid of all of the lawmaking that Barack Obama did by his executive orders, level the playing field, ask Congress to change laws that need to be changed,” he said. “What he will do if Congress doesn’t give him what he wants? I don’t know. He is probably going to get the lion’s share of what he wants because he has a lot of goodwill and the Republicans control both Houses."

Britain again breaks ranks with Europe — this time over Israel

Mideast peace conference The Paris peace conference saw Great Britain break ranks with the countries that attended in a move that pleased Israel and perhaps the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Two days after delegates from more than 70 nations attended the Paris summit on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is clear that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was wrong to label the meeting “useless.”

Admittedly the France-initiated event, which neither Israel nor the Palestinian Authority attended, did not change the international community’s understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Nor did the gathering take any concrete steps to end the dispute.

But it was neither insignificant nor useless from Israel’s point of view. The summit saw Great Britain break ranks with the countries that did attend in a move that pleased Israel and perhaps the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Instead of demonstrating international consensus as intended by France under President Francois Hollande, the summit turned into a showdown between France and the United Kingdom over Israel. In an unprecedented manner, the rift exposed disagreements within a brittle European Union that is bracing for potentially turbulent relations with the United States under Trump.

The first sign of dissent happened before the summit even began, when the United Kingdom dispatched only junior diplomats. By contrast, Hollande attended, as did 36 foreign ministers, including the US Secretary of State, John Kerry.

Trump’s Jews and Obama’s Jews

"I am a proud “Trump Jew.” Trump is, without question, the most pro-Israel, philosemitic President we have had the honor of electing. How the Jewish left could deny reality and stand with one of  Israel’s most vicious enemies (and there are many) speaks more about them and their godlessness than anything they or I could ever say.


The Left is losing the culture war within the Jewish community.

Daniel Greenfield, Front Page Magazine, January 13, 2017:

Seen from above, the 2016 electoral map of New York City is blue with dots of red. Trump’s home district is blue, but across the water a red wedge slices into Brooklyn. Around that red wedge are districts where Hillary won 90 percent of the vote and Trump was lucky to get 5 percent. Inside it, he beat her in district after district.
The voters who handed him that victory are the Chassidic Jews of Williamsburg who dress in fur hats and black caftans. Their districts, crammed in by hipsters and minorities, are a world away from the progressive activist temples whose clergy went into mourning at Hillary’s loss.
East of Prospect Park, in a vast sea of blue, is what looks like a red sofa. Trump won here with the Chabad Chassidim of Crown Heights. He won in the more mainstream Orthodox Jewish communities of Flatbush. He won by huge margins among the Russian Jewish immigrants of Brighton Beach who listen to a man dubbed the “Russian Rush Limbaugh.”
