"And those who love Your Name will exult in You (Psalms 5:12)." Every time we mention the Almighty's name with love, we are connecting with eternity. We are not merely in the physical spot where we stand or sit. We are between two eternities: The eternity before this moment, and the eternity after this moment. We are connecting with the Infinite. Whenever we say Hashem's name, we should bear in mind that: "He is the Master of all that exists. He always was, He always is, and He always will be" (Shulchan Aruch 5:1)
Today is the day we expect the visit of President Trump to the Western Wall (the Kotel), he is the first sitting President (while in actual office) to visit the Kotel. Naturally, in Jerusalem this as seen as a big deal. The streets are closed and we all hoping that finally we are on the road to peace.

There's a part of Israel in every F-35 that's ever been built,
TEL AVIV – "There's a part of Israel in every F-35 that's ever been built," a Lockheed Martin senior executive told a gathering of air power professionals here Thursday.
Speaking at an annual event of Israel Defense and the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Gary North, vice president for customer requirements at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, said the firm has already contracted more than $1 billion worth of structures, subsystems and components with Israeli industry.
And over the lifetime of the program, assuming Israel concludes follow-on buys for the full 75 planes authorized by the U.S. government, Israeli content in the multinational program is expected to exceed $4 billion, he said.
"We're very excited about our partnership with the Israeli industry," said North.
He cited the aircraft's helmet-mounted display system by Elbit Systems, in partnership with Rockwell Collins; outer wing sets by Israel Aerospace Industries; and aerostructures by Cyclone, an Elbit subsidiary, as examples of Israeli content provided to the multinational program.
Israel has contracted for 33 F-35A-model aircraft thus far, five of which are now in-country. A third tranche for another 17 F-35As have been approved by the government, and conclusion of the pending contract will bring the Israel Air Force's fleet a full two squadrons of 50 planes.

Dr. Harold Goldmeier new article-stand up for free speech
The City of Dallas, Texas passed an ordinance stating that
if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement and is not able to provide
proof of insurance,the car is towed.
To retrieve the car after being impounded,
they must show proof of insuranceto have the car released.
This has made it easy for the City of Dallas to remove uninsured cars.
Shortly after the "No Insurance" ordinance was passed,
the Dallas impound lots began to fill up and were full after only nine days.
Over 80%of the impounded carswere driven by illegals.
Now, not only must they provide proofof insurance to have their car released,
they have to pay for the cost of the tow,a $350 fine,
and$20for every day their car is kept in the lot.
Accident rates have gone down 47%
and Dallas ' solution gets uninsured driversoff the road WITHOUT
making them show proof of nationality.
I wonder how the
US Justice Department will get around this one .

China's New Aircraft Carrier
The following comment from an American Observer who viewed the illustrations above;
"This is a quantum leap above anything we have on the drawing board. They have thought "outside the box" on this one. Better speed, larger capacity, much more stable, etc. Definitely a "blue-water" long reach vessel. Plus they can service their nuke sub fleet in-between the twin hulls (sight unseen) or even launch amphibious ops from same. It will be launched in half the time it takes the USA at just one-third the cost. Add the new Chinese stealth fighter bomber (naval version already flight-testing) in the mix and you have the makings of a formidable weapons system indeed. Also look at that extra ''parking and readiness'' station between both hull structures. And of course the launching and landing capabilities from the utilization of twin flight decks at once.
Six of these vessels (two pacific, two Atlantic, one Indian ocean and one on the Mediterranean sea ) would be a pretty good diplomatic "big stick." Note: the Chinese are already drilling for oil off Cuba, Brazil andVenezuela. Can they build a fleet of these things?
A few facts: the Chinese have completed the world's biggest dam (three gorges), the world's longest over-water bridge (65 times as much steel as in the Eiffel tower), constructed a 15,000 ft. High railroad into Tibet(all considered major engineering feats).
China is the only nation other than Russia that can launch men into outer space. They have also shot down a surveillance satellite (one of their own) from the ground. Plus, they "own our arses" in the international debt game.
China 's new carrier could be twice as fast as anything we have, plus the stability of a catamaran type hull will greatly reduce the pitching, yawing and swaying common to our present designs.
