13 cents

This Man Plays Next to New York’s Homeless So They Earn More Money

A video on YouTube has Alex Jones opening pickle jars to determine whether the opening of a pickle jar by Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the Jimmy Kimmel show was a staged stunt . One of the comments below the video referenced it as Picklegate 2016. One comment left me wondering how the video about the pickle stunt could possibly be linked to Israel.
"Are we really talking about this! She's not well. She should not be president, let's move on and fix this Zionist problem. Israel needs multiculturalism too."

Yesterday's State Department briefing included a question about the U.S. $1.3 billion payment to Iran.

QUESTION: -- with the story that doesn’t seem to want to go away, and that is the payment of The Hague judgment, the settlement claim. So yesterday, it emerged in various news reports that the judgment fund, which Treasury runs, had put – posted, kind of hiding in plain sight, 13 payments of $99,999,999.99 – which, if you add them all up, comes to just under the 1.3 billion that you guys had needed still to pay the Iranians.

Since the Department of State is listed as the defendant name in the case, I don’t think that there’s much use in you trying to say that this was not the money for Iran, considering the history of these payments on their website, which doesn’t show anything close to that for the rest of this year.

So first all – I’ve got a couple things on this. The first thing is, one, if you add it all up, you’re 13 cents short. (Laughter.) Have the Iranians asked for their 13 cents, or are you guys holding onto it for leverage in the next – for the next release of prisoners?

With reports of a man being apparently beaten to death in a Palestinian jail in the West Bank city of Nablus, one would think the incident would be brought up at the State Department Briefing. And yes, indeed,  the treatment of prisoners in one Middle East country was brought up during the briefing.

QUESTION: And lastly, on the administrative detention, apparently Israel is re-arresting Palestinians who have been released and they just – under administrative detention. I wonder if you have any comment on that, considering that the UN is calling on Israel to end the practice of administrative detention.

Another question in the briefing related to Hebron.


QUESTION: Mark, I wonder if you have any comment. The Israelis – according to the Israeli press, Israel is planning, for the first time in ten years, to expand the Jewish settlement in Hebron. First of all, are you aware of this report? And second, do you have a comment on this?

MR TONER: Well, we have seen those reports, Said, that the Israelis are considering – plan to build homes for Israeli settlers in a military compound in Hebron. Certainly if these reports are true, it would appear to be an effort to expand civilian Israeli settlement in the city of Hebron, and that would represent a deeply concerning step of settlement expansions – settlement expansion, rather, on land that is at least partially owned by the Palestinians. As you know, we strongly oppose all settlement activity, which is corrosive to the cause of peace.

Shoftim 1:20 And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses had spoken;... Should the above verse be amended to And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses had spoken until Hebron became partially owned by the Palestininas as the State Department Spokesperson had spoken?
