BY FOX NEWS

Israel fired back at Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasting Kerry’s lengthy televised rebuke of the Middle Eastern democracy. Netanyahu, speaking in Jerusalem just over an hour after Kerry’s speech had ended, said Kerry's rhetoric was "as unbalanced as the anti-Israel resolution passed [at the United Nations] last week." Netanyahu said. "Secretary Kerry paid lip service to the unrelenting campaign of terror that has been waged by the Palestinians against the Jewish State," he said, later adding: "Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders." Netanyahu said. "We have it on absolutely incontestable evidence the U.S. organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the Security Council," said Netanyahu, who promised to share the "sensitive" intelligence with the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Transition Update

The incoming Donald Trump administration is considering a "public-private option" for military veterans to get health care, a senior aide to the president-elect said on Wednesday. Trump spoke briefly with reporters after a day of meetings, including talks with top health industry officials, but initially left explaining the details — what there were of them — to his staff. Wednesday night, Trump emerged from his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, to speak for himself. "Well, I don't want to see veterans waiting in line for two weeks, and you know, in many cases, they have a minor illness, and it takes so long to see a doctor, it turns out to be a major illness and beyond that. And I don't want to see that anymore. So we'll see what happens ... The doctors were explaining to me today — things that can be taken care of quickly, when you wait too long, it's life-threatening. People are dying. So we're going to fix it properly, not like it's been done over the past, ok?" The official who spoke to reporters in Florida and went unnamed in pool reports emphasized nothing's been decided, but there's "an option on the table to have a system where potentially vets can choose either or, or all private."

Dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation

BY GreatAgain

President-elect Donald J. Trump announced today that, as part of his ongoing transition efforts, he intends to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation. In making this announcement, Mr. Trump stated: “The Foundation has done enormous good works over the years in contributing millions of dollars to countless worthy groups, including supporting veterans, law enforcement officers and children. However, to avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President I have decided to continue to pursue my strong interest in philanthropy in other ways.” President-elect Trump has directed his counsel to take the necessary steps to effectuate the dissolution. The President-elect added, “I am very proud of the money that has been raised for many organizations in need, and I am also very proud of the fact that the Foundation has operated at essentially no cost for decades, with 100% of the money going to charity, but because I will be devoting so much time and energy to the Presidency and solving the many problems facing our country and the world, I don’t want to allow good work to be associated with a possible conflict of interest.”

 “The resolution being considered at the United Nations Security Council regarding Israel should be vetoed. “As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations. “This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis.”
