Right before leaving office, Barack Obama gave one last gift to the Palestinians, Israel’s #1 enemy.
In total, the U.S. has spent $4.5 billion over the past twenty years trying to promote peace in the Palestinian territories. The Palestinian Authority has received over $25 billion over the past 20 years. How has this all worked out in bringing about peace? It hasn’t. None of that stopped Obama from giving them a parting gift hours before leaving office, quietly releasing $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.
President Trump froze the payment – but it’s still asinine that it ever occurred.
Obama famously got a Nobel Peace Prize for no reason whatsoever – and now Israel is going to help Trump score one of his own. As Infowars reported:
Israel will nominate President Donald Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize for his ongoing work to stabilize the Middle East, according to insiders who spoke to Infowars correspondent Dr. Jerome Corsi.

Among the others who have been nominated for the prize include Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis, and the American Civil Liberties Union.
It’ll be interesting to see how the awards are politicized this time around, given that the ACLU is currently suing Donald Trump. If Trump was to be awarded the prize over the ACLU, or vice-versa, it’ll easily be interpreted by onlookers as an endorsement of the policies of Trump, or opposition to Trump’s policies (if the ACLU wins it).
Even if Trump doesn’t win the Nobel Prize, his presidency will leave behind a legacy proving that he deserved one all along. Ironically, Barack Obama’s legacy proves just the opposite. What peace has he brought in fueling the rise of ISIS and resurgence of the Taliban? None.
