On December 13th, the following news-story was distributed for publication to virtually all U.S.-and-allied major (and many minor) newsmedia, but it was published only by four small “alt-news” sites (washingtonsblog being one of them) even though the article links to all the evidence, all of which is solid. 100% of the mainstream news-sites refused to publish any of the facts that are disclosed here; it’s been, thus far, a total cover-up, in 100% of the mainstream:
POLL: By 2-to-1, Americans Oppose Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

A reliable scientific poll of 2,000 Americans, taken during 1-6 November 2017 — just a month before U.S. President Donald Trump announced that America’s Embassy will move to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv — showed that 63% of Americans were opposed to the move, and 31% supported it. Here was the question, as asked:
Q61. Having thought about it, do you support or oppose the United States immediately moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?
Total Rep Dem Ind
1. Support 31% 49% 15% 28%
2. Oppose 63% 44% 81% 60%
This was the latest “Critical Issues Poll” by the University of Maryland and the Nielsen Scarborough polling organization, and it showed that U.S. President Trump didn’t actually represent the American people when he issued this historic order. He may have represented Israelis, and he may have represented American billionaires, but he represented less than a third of Americans who expressed an opinion about the matter.
