Netanyahu refuses to concede after he falls short — blames media instead

Published

on

Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, refused to concede after being down in the election night polls. Like the last election, Netanyahu is claiming his own personal victory and blaming the media for all of his woes.

Senior Diplomatic correspondent Barak Ravid, at Channel 13 News in Tel-Aviv, was live-tweeting the election results late Tuesday night.

“Netanyahu says Israel needs a Zionist government that is committed for Israel as a Jewish state. No government can be based on support from Arab parties,” Ravid said.

According to Bloomberg, the final count is unknown but things aren’t looking good for Netanyahu.

“The lack of a decisive victory would be a stunning setback for Israel’s longest-serving leader, who gambled on a revote to strengthen his political hand,” the report said.

“The results here are less good for him than in April; and in April he didn’t make a government,” said pollster and political consultant Simon Davies. “Whichever way you look at it — if the exit polls are right — Bibi is not in a great position. Bibi is a consummate politician, though, and you’d never put it past him to get out of any situation.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump is still upset about the recent Fox News poll that showed not only support for his impeachment, but it also showed him losing to Democratic challengers in the 2020 election.

When the poll was revealed, the president took to his rally stage to rant about Fox News not being supportive enough of him. Attorney General Bill Bar went so far as to meet with network owner Rupert Murdoch.

"The Fox Impeachment poll has turned out to be incorrect. This was announced on Friday. Despite this, the Corrupt New York Times used this poll in one of its stories, no mention of the correction which they knew about full well! 'Fox News Pollster Braun Research Misrepresented Impeachment Poll: Analysis'" Trump said, citing an editorial by the conservative Murdoch-owned New York Post.

Trump encourages Russia and China to help Syria ‘protect’ the Kurds he betrayed: ‘I hope they all do great!’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday washed his hands of any responsibility for Kurdish forces whom he abandoned last week.

Writing on Twitter, the president suggested that the Syrian government, which the United States has accused of committing multiple war crimes including using chemical weapons on civilians, could help "protect" the Kurds from invading Turkish forces.

"Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me, whether it is Russia, China, or Napoleon Bonaparte," the president wrote. "I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away!"

....and Assad to protect the land of our enemy? Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me, whether it is Russia, China, or Napoleon Bonaparte. I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away!

As the 2020 election kicks into gear, political analysts have argued that Ohio could be a lost cause to Democrats, but one columnist disagrees.

According to Vanity Fair's Peter Hamby, recent polls indicate Democrats shouldn't write it off just yet.

"As Democrats bring their next primary debate to Ohio on Tuesday, they're grappling with whether the new Republican dominance in those industrial and rural pockets has pushed Ohio out of their reach," the Associated Press reported Monday. "Some Democratic presidential campaigns are contemplating once unheard-of White House victory scenarios that leave out Ohio. The storied swing state — a place that sided with the winning presidential candidate in all but one election since 1944 — seems likely to be eclipsed by Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania in next year's election."
