Within a couple of hours of President Joe Biden’s swearing-in Wednesday, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel’s Twitter account was changed to include that the position will also oversee the West Bank and Gaza, first reported by The Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo.

The page was quickly reverted back to just state the position is the “U.S. Ambassador to Israel,” deleting the addition.

As Kredo notes in his piece, the earlier change signaled the first time the U.S. will have a policy stance on the Palestinian territories. Moreover, he writes that it could strain ties with Israeli officials.

On Tuesday, Antony Blinken, President Biden’s nominee for Secretary of State, testified before a Senate committee that he would push for a two-state solution between the Israelis and Palestinians and keep the U.S. Embassy in Israel in Jerusalem if confirmed.

Senator Ted Cruz asked Blinken if he both ‘agreed that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel’ and if he would ‘commit that the United States will keep our embassy in Jerusalem.”

To which Blinken replied resolutely, “Yes and yes.”

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
