      Right.
      But it is Donald Trump.
      If Kushner had not been willing, President Trump would have found another negotiator.

        I guess you don’t like Mr. Kushner…

        The negotiations in Afghanistan broke down because the negotiators did not want the US to pull out…sabotaged it.. the negotiator was replaced.. And Afghanistan peace negotiation is moving forward again.

        So it’s not just a negotiator it has to be the right negotiator.. it’s pretty obvious Mr Kushner is trusted by all parties.. he might not be liked by all parties but then it is peace and that is good.

        I remember how the MSM vilified Mr Kushner not too long ago.. I wonder if MSM are going to retract their criticism.

        A manager success is being able to pick the right person to perform the task.. President Trumps difficulty is picking the right person out of a crowd of never Trumper RINOs

        • Crooked Kushner is not to be trusted. His allegiance is to Israel who take, take, take, and never give. We are their friends, but they are not REALLY ours. Young Israelites are leaving the country due to government corruption. Kushner is a liberal DEMONrat incognito, and should have been shown out of the White House long ago. In fact, I don’t like the idea that he and Ivanka were there in the first place. By the way, I am a President Trump supporter and am voting for him again. But he is making a big mistake trusting this crook.

            You left out all the reasons.

            The reasons I like & support Kushner are that he’s played a key role in not only these historic peace deals, but also as the point man on the First Step Act & on the 2016 campaign’s digital strategy (along with Parscale), that was an important aspect of the election victory; also, he seems highly intelligent and pragmatic in interviews and public appearances, yet he mostly stays out of the spotlight and doesn’t try to make his contributions about tooting his own horn. This attitude is probably a big part of the reason he’s able to work with a wide variety of people to make positive things happen. When the main people involved in the prison reform bill discuss how it came about, you always hear that it was Kushner who initially met with them, convinced them they weren’t going to be tricked or used somehow and brought together various groups who normally would be suspicious of one another.

            Many important issues are NOT about coming up with some unique genius solution as much as they’re about simply building the trust to get the right people to come together and make a good faith effort to find common ground. Kushner seems to get that. He shows up, leaves his ego at home, works towards the common goal and doesn’t get caught up in haggling over who gets credit or worrying about how he’s perceived. Peace is the prize, as Sundance often emphasizes, and Kushner seems to have internalized.

            You might recall that POTUS gave VP Pence the option to pick whomever he wanted for his Covid Response Team and Pence requested Kushner as his lead guy. Kushner was dealing with requests for protective & medical equipment from the states and I remember him imploring Governors not to “estimate up” broadly and pointing out that we could get supplies where they were needed fast, but that we needed real data and reasonable estimates not just people throwing out huge numbers “to be on the safe side.” He came across as quite competent and well-informed at the one presser where he spoke at length… in fact, he made such a positive impression that there was briefly lots of media chatter (and discussion here, as well) about how he seemed much more on top of things than Pence did and the contrast was striking/not a good look for Pence.

            You think it’s suspicious that Kushner used to be a Democrat. To me, the fact that he sided with his father-in-law & MAGA in the most public manner possible, choosing that allegiance over all of his old friends and connections (even at the expense of a falling out with his brother, if I recall correctly) is an especially strong show of loyalty. In an interview shortly after the election, he mentioned that he and Ivanka lost about 3/4 of their friends and almost all of their NY/NJ business connections by getting actively involved in the campaign, but that they had known what it meant and made the decision to be so involved with eyes wide open. The interviewer said something to him about how that must have been difficult and his reply was that it was worth it and he was grateful for it, because it clarified who their real friends were and burned away all the fake ones and he didn’t want it any other way.

            Does Kushner still maintain views that are more liberal than POTUS or most of his supporters? Probably, as I doubt he changed his entire political philosophy, although I would also think he would have to be strongly influenced just by being around all the success of the past few years. Ultimately, he believes strongly in POTUS’s leadership and in the big-picture elements of MAGA. And he’s not, nor is he ever going to be responsible for deciding Admin positions on specific hot-button social issues. You know those gossip items about how various cabinet members and confidants of POTUS talk sh*t behind his back and snicker about him with the press and so on… I’m not saying all of those are true, of course, but at least some have proven to be (about Tillerson, Kelly, Mattis and others) and it’s been obvious there’s some tension/disagreement between cabinet members/advisors and POTUS from time to time… but you NEVER hear about Kushner gossiping or talking down POTUS. As far as I can tell, he’s about as loyal to POTUS and committed to helping make MAGA a reality as anybody in the West Wing. His whole m.o. is working towards a consensus on important, widely beneficial areas of progress that aren’t even really partisan… everyone (or nearly everyone) wants peace in the ME & regardless of your exact views on the topic of prison reform, it seems clear the US prison system needed (and still needs) reforming.

            Kushner being extremely productive in a way that transcends partisan debates is a feature not a bug. As far as I can tell, he’s the obvious MVP of the first term (not counting Trump himself, of course).

              DV Meca, Thank you for your words, I very much liked what you said & I agree ! Maybe Kushner was taught by his father in law how to use **that magic wand ** while working The Art of the Deal .

              I wasn’t sure about him at first & his sort of robotic, Dorian Gray look & demeanor turns a lot of us off. But I can’t deny anymore that he seems to love his father in law and works very hard for what P. Trump wants and that he is an unequaled winner at successfully making these almost impossible peace deals happen. God Bless P. Trump , all his family and staff that work so hard for us and the world.

      I don’t mean to diminish Trump in any way. But I would like to highlight that “ANYONE” could have done what Trump has done. It’s that they chose not to. But it’s also that Trump chose to FIGHT to make things like this happen.

      People like to attribute “genius and vision” to Trump’s accomplishments but I would say none of his ideas are particularly novel. Where Trump stands out is fierce implementation. This guy is the most “heavy weight” president the US has ever had and, sadly, probably the most heavy weight president that we will ever have — I don’t hold out much hope that we will have another Trump after his second term.

      It is my hope that Trump establishes such strong precedent in the thoughts and memories of the nation that Trump’s wake will be able to maintain the US for decades to come.

      Consider simple things like “campaign promises.” Our society has long ago given up on the idea that a politician will actually keep campaign promises. We forgive and excuse far too easily and we are often thrilled with the mere appearance of an “attempt.” That’s not Trump and that’s a NEW standard which needs to be expected by all voters out there.

      God doesn’t think like we think simply because the circumstances are different. We’ve got a lot to lose and so we dang-well need to think differently. But in a more eternal sense, perhaps one of the purposes of our own mortality is to create incentive to care about outcomes. (Not saying God doesn’t care about outcomes, but rather, it’s incentive for less mature souls to care rather than not.)

      Over all, Trump’s value is not simply that he does a thing. It’s that he does things which also shape the expectations of what we actually need from a world leader. It is those new expectations which need to be preserved and perpetuated. Swamp creatures are best known for by their deeds. The contrast between the swamp and people who love this country (and indeed this world) is sharp and clear for me to see. I hope it is just as clear for the rest of the world to see.

            Both of you mirror my impression in that it is more about MOTIVATION and less about ability. Every president has had the same ability and tools at his disposal. Even if they had great intentions, they folded under pressure “at best.”

            He is definitely a man who gets things done. It’s will and it’s motivations first and foremost. But it’s also “knowing how things work” for sure. His super-hero status is achieved in his ability to overcome those with opposing interests.

              I agree. Look at what they thought of General Grant.. that he was lucky. He had the same resources available to him as McClellan did so why wasn’t McClellan winning the war? McClellan did not win because that was not HIS goal. Grant was a man who got things done and was willing to use every resource to achieve the goal. Grant’s goal was the same as Lincoln’s goal which was to win the war and end slavery. McClellan did not like Lincoln and did not see losing Union lives to abolish slavery. All these years the American people have been had by these Washington bureaucrat’s who only want to prolong conflict because they probably get paid something for that. To think that they are willing to lose the lives of our soldiers so their pockets can get padded is a disgrace. I hope the Presidents recognizes that he can start cleaning out the State Department of all these career losers and communists who have advocated for prolonged conflict in the middle east. The middle east, land of Death and Blood.

              Daniel I adamantly disagree.

              President Trump wrote a book many decades ago called “The Art of the Deal.”
              President Roosevelt gave away half of Europe to the communists.
              President Truman gave away half of our future liberty to the CIA.
              President Eisenhower basically maintained status quo for eight years.
              President Kennedy stared down the Russians in Cuba, but didn’t know how to negotiate with the Deep State and was murdered for threatening them.
              President Johnson gave away Americans independence and fiscal stability with welfare and Medicare, then couldn’t negotiate with China or North Vietnam so he got 50,000 Americans killed.
              President Nixon couldn’t negotiate with his own party and was run out of office for not understanding how he had been framed.
              President Ford couldn’t negotiate steps much less anything significant.
              President Carter couldn’t negotiate with the Arabs / OPEC so we got double digit inflation.
              President Reagan tried negotiating with Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neal to get money to rebuild a badly depleted military and wound up getting rolled both in ‘82 with the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act – which increased taxes – And a second time by House Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski in the 1986 Tax Reform legislation.
              President GHW Bush prepared to give away America’s sovereignty to a NWO by first preparing to negotiate away our manufacturing industry via NAFTA. He did convince the communists to eliminate the Berlin Wall, which preceded nthe collapse of the Soviet Union.
              President Clinton finished “negotiating” NAFTA, this securing our loss of millions of jobs to Mexico, China, and elsewhere. He also negotiated China into permanent trade dominance via the U.S.-China Relations Act of 2000.
              President GWBush negotiated the U.S. into a long and costly Middle East war, and negotiated North Korea into expanding their nuclear weapons testing.
              President Ozero’s negotiations that proved extremely costly and existentially dangerous to the U.S. are legend but too numerous to list.

              By contrast, President Trump has negotiated the lowest taxes in decades, the best trade agreements in decades especially with China, a pull back of North Korea’s aggressive behavior, the beginnings of real Middle East peace agreements, and has pulled the U.S. away from several destructive international treaties and agreements in the process. IMHO he has negotiating skills that his predecessors lacked, regardless of their motivations.

        “…politician will actually keep campaign promises…”

        Trump is not a politician, he’s a business man.

        In the business you are as good as your word and your willingness to work with the other side to create a WIN-WIN situation. That makes money for all and forges long term relationships.

        Successful long term business relationships are the most profitable. The “overhead” of making a deal is minimal. Ergo… more profit!

        That, you see is Trump. He sees everything through that. To him, profit for a nation means prosperity, peace, happiness, independence. Then he applies that to other nations. Let them do it, the US will simply “help” them to switch their thinking from a political POV to an economic POV. The rest, is history.

    It is laughable to hear the geniuses come out of the wood work and claim anyone could have done this for ‘reasons XYZ.’ It is nothing but pure garbage.

    It is laughable because it could not have been done until Trump did it. Trump took what existed, forged a path with a strategy ferreted out of the muck of 1400 years of Muslim Demonry, and against valid distrust on the part of Israel of everyone and anything as their existence was at stake.

    No. This is pure magic and illusion. Magic because rabbits don’t fit in small hats and illusion because it goes against 1400 years of bloodshed from the hands of Muslims, entombed in the commands of their religious founder, demonstrated in his wars of murder, plunder, rape, and enslavement, and written down in ‘Holy’ words many times.

    Only Trump, truly, only Trump, could pull this off. The problem is what happens after his next 4 years are up? Will the world wake up to the mirage, Muslims rediscover the ‘Holy’ words, their history, and commands? Especially if the ‘Gulf States’ with new weapons feel they have the upper hand and do what was done in the past when that happened, what their founder actually did and taught.

    These words and deeds will have to be scraped off the pages of their ‘Holy’ texts and their memory expunged. Who can do that? It would take a ‘Holy’ hand. Who has that hand?

      Look, my family fought in the Spanish Civil War against Franco. Two uncles died, several -and grandfather- spent time in POW camps after the war.

      Yet my grandmother would tell me: “Tony, Franco is not good for politics, but he is good for business”.

      When business is good, people get to know each other, get to trust each other. You don’t listen to the snake politicians that want to destroy what you and the other guy have built and have going. After all, you got your grandkids to take care of .

      I think THAT will be Trump’s legacy. Long term trusting relationships that transcend the politicians and fundamentalists.

      These Arab monarchies have to retain power till their peoples emerge from bloody history. The UAE is tiny, a federation of tribes that manage well collectively. Saudi is much bigger, much more diverse and precarious. MbS has learned a lot from MbZ (UAE), but he’s got a lot more to learn.

      Egypt is the most populous, most influential Arab nation to the “Man on the Arab Street”. Western media are gaga over these Gulf sheikhdoms, don’t pay sufficient attention to the nation that embodies the history, the culture.

      The greatest institution of Sunni Islam is Egypt’s al-Azhar, founded in 970/972 A.D. They just came out with a positive ruling, that seems to draw a distinction between Islam and political Islam. Also, Pres. al-Sisi praised the Accord.

        Islamic scholar rejects Palestinian Mufti’s fatwa banning Emiratis from praying in Al Quds

        CAIRO, 18th August, 2020 (WAM) — A grand scholar at Al Azhar Al Sharif, Egypt’s renowned Islamic institution, has rejected a fatwa by Al Quds Mufti where he forbids the Emirati people from praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque following the UAE-Israeli peace accord.

        “As a specialist in Islamic Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) I can’t find any religious justification for declaring as haram (forbidden) the worship of any Muslim people in any mosque all over the world based on a political stance taken by these people’s leadership. I reject any religious fatwa that is not based on Shari’a – compliant rules,” Dr Abbas Shuman, a member of Al Azhar’s Committee of Senior Scholars.

        “I’m not here defending the UAE’s decision, nor interfering in its political stand which is solely determined by its leaders. I’m only dismissing that fatwa as biased as it has no legal sanction and cannot be enforced.…

    What accounts for today’s historic peace deal? A lot of hard work, for sure. The enormous growth in Israeli economic, military, & demographic power over the last 20 years, definitely. But the key new ingredient is the Trump admin being guided by the right ideas. Short thread. 1/

    An important point: Nothing matters to “the Arab Street” – whatever that is – unless it’s spoken in ARABIC.

    “Significant that UAE FM speaking in Arabic. In past the criticism was that Arab leaders spoke peace in English, and something else in Arabic. He’s speaking peace very publicly for entire Arab world to hear. Also explains why at outset he thanked Netanyahu for stopping annexation.”
