Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn’t been built in a town that doesn’t exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying “Trump Heights,” Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

The Times of Israel headlined the stunt as having “no plans” and “no budget.”

“Anyone who reads the fine print in this ‘historic’ decision will understand that this is nothing more than a nonbinding, fake policy,” said Blue and White MK Zvi Hauser. “There is no budgeting, no planning, no location for a settlement, and there is no binding decision to implement the project. But at least they insisted on a name for the settlement.”

Trump support has been tremendous for Netanyahu, Axios explained. He was supposed to build a coalition government after being elected but failed to do so by the deadline. Now he’s being forced back into an electoral campaign, and the site explained he’ll need Trump’s help to get there.

He explained in the press conference that the building hasn’t even been passed by his cabinet yet, but he said that they would pass a resolution to establish the town of Golan. Right now, the town only exists on paper.

“So what was actually decided is that the Ministry of Housing will start preliminary planning work. For now, there is not even a fund allocated to build the new town,” Axios explained.

Trump tweeted: “Thank you Prime Minister Netanyahu and the state of Israel for this great honor.”

It’s unknown if Trump is aware that the town and tower don’t exist.

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election

Published

on

It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.

But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.

The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.

Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
