Is Biden Out of the Loop on Israel-Hamas Negotiations? replies
Posted by Dreadnought 2/29/2024 12:45:30 AM Post Reply
You've probably seen the breathless headlines emerging this week featuring Joe Biden suggesting that a ceasefire deal in Gaza was "close" to being finalized and that at least some hostages and prisoners could be exchanged. Most of us would likely be glad to see hostages coming home, so that's good news, right? And Biden assured us that he'd gotten that information from National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, so the claim must have been pretty solid. There's only one problem with the story and the assumptions that followed, though. As the Free Beacon quickly pointed out, some reporters had been following up with their sources in Israel and around

President Joe Biden “passes a cognitive test every day” due to the rigors of the job, said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday, as she attempted to fend off reporters’ questions about Biden’s mental fitness. Jean-Pierre presided over a White House press briefing just hours after the president returned from his annual physical. She said that a cognitive test was not part of the annual checkup, despite concerns about Biden’s acuity.“If you look at what this president — he passes a cognitive test every day, every day, as he moves from one topic to another topic, understanding the granular level of these topics …

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is using TikTok as a “modern day Trojan Horse” to inject its propaganda into the minds of America’s youth, according to restricted Chinese military journals uncovered in Peter Schweizer’s new book: Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans. In Blood Money, Schweizer, a Breitbart News senior contributor and the President of the Government Accountability Institute, strategists themselves, who tout using TikTok in “information-driven mental warfare” against the United States. As Schweizer notes, TikTok is run by the company ByteDance, which is “wedded to the Chinese Communist Party military-intelligence-industrial complex.”reveals the words of Chinese

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (I) chimed in on Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) deciding to step down in November as Senate GOP leader. Kennedy posted on X that it's time to put leaders in power "who won't kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts." We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first. (X) For some time, there was speculation that Kennedy would select one of the following as his running mate:

An Illinois state judge has kicked former President Donald Trump off the Illinois' Republican presidential primary ballot due to his alleged role in the January 6 Capitol riots. Cook County Circuit Judge Tracie Porter ruled in favor of Illinois voters who argued Trump should be disqualified from the state's mid-March primary ballot, as well as the November 5 general election ballot. Voters brought their case over Trump's behavior on January 6, 2021, when he allegedly violated the anti-insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment.

The intelligence community is reportedly “on edge” over former President Donald Trump’s potential return to the White House and what it may mean for those who oppose him. Politico — the outlet that published a debunked article implying the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation — interviewed 18 former officials and analysts who worked in the sprawling bureaucracy as either appointees or career officials, with the majority wanting to snipe at Trump anonymously, allegedly to “avoid provoking backlash.” The piece cites Trump critic Fiona Hill — a Russia analyst and former intelligence official who served under George Bush and Barack Obama and went from the liberal think tank Brookings Institution

A corrupt Cook County judge has ordered the Illinois Board of Elections to remove Donald Trump from ballots statewide for the March 19 primary. As ABC 7 News Chicago reports, Democrat Judge Tracie Porter stripped Trump from the Illinois ballot one month after the Illinois State Board of Elections dismissed the anti-Trump challenge in a unanimous and bipartisan vote. Porter claimed Trump violated the 14th Amendment’s Insurrection Clause as her excuse for removing him from the ballot. We all know Trump did not commit insurrection or any other federal crime. “The court also realizes the magnitude of this decision and its impact on the upcoming primary
Biden Reportedly Refuses to Confront China
Over Fentanyl Due to His Ties to the Communist Country

The southern border has seen enormous amounts of fentanyl pouring into the United States with millions of illegal migrants, thanks to President Joe Biden’s reckless open border policies. In 2023 alone, Border Patrol agents seized enough fentanyl to kill every American in the country, confiscating 2,700 pounds of fentanyl— which did not include the amount seized at ports of entry. According to the president of the GAI, Peter Schweizer, Biden refuses to confront China about their production of fentanyl that ends up in the hands of illegal migrants because of the president’s ties to the communist country.

In what is becoming a grim pattern in a nation suffering under the Biden Administration's mass migration policies, another innocent young person has lost his life at the hands of illegal aliens. On the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 8., Jeremy Poou-Caceres, who had just celebrated his second birthday, was walking with his mother in the 1400 block of Kanawha Street in Langley Park, Md. Suddenly, a shootout broke out, and the pair were caught in the crossfire. When the smoke cleared, Rose Carceras was hospitalized with a non-life-threatening wound to her leg.

If President Dementia finally falters for good and Vice President Cackler is somehow persuaded to allow herself to be eased into a comfortable and lucrative retirement, and if the persistent rumors about a Michelle Obama presidential campaign prove to be just that — rumors — the Commissar of the California Soviet Socialist Republic, Gavin Newsom, is waiting in the wings. In 2028, he won’t have so many people ahead of him in the Democrat food chain, and he could conceivably turn out to be the occupant of the Oval Office someday.

As anyone even halfway aware of Bud Light’s financial woes since putting Dylan Mulvaney on one their cans predicted, their attempt to reclaim their domination of the beer market via funny Super Bowl ads did not have the intended result. If anything, it was a waste of a $7 million plus brand rehabilitation effort. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that, despite the astronomical amounts of money Anheuser-Busch expended on the prime ad space of the Super Bowl, the company’s attempt to boost their flagging sales “barely moved the needle.”

An Illinois judge ruled Wednesday that former President Donald Trump should be taken off of the state's ballot for the primary election, citing the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The decision came from the Circuit Court of Cook County, and the judge put the order on pause in anticipation of an appeal. The ruling said that "based on engaging in insurrection on January 6, 2021...his name should be removed from the ballot." NBC News has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment. The Illinois GOP primary takes place March 19. The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments regarding a similar Colorado ruling that said Trump should be removed

Washington — President Joe Biden is fit for duty, his doctor reported Wednesday following the president’s annual physical, in what is expected to be the last update on Biden’s health before November’s election. Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a memo there are “no new concerns” with the president’s health revealed by this year’s physical. The White House said earlier Wednesday that no cognitive test was administered as O’Connor did not find it necessary. “The President feels well and this year’s physical identified no new concerns. He continues to be fit for duty and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations,” O’Connor wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of Hunter highlights her change in political disposition from a once lefty populist turned establishment protectorate of the Bidens. “What we just witnessed over the last hour was, I think, a deep sea fishing expedition,” the Democrat congresswoman alleged. “The Republican case has completely fallen apart over the last several weeks.” Hunter is a material witness in the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, who denied involvement in the Biden business at least nine times.

In 2017, Antifa and its anarcho-Marxist allies and a few small white supremacist groups engaged in violent activity at political rallies. However, the Department of Justice prosecuted only the white supremacists under the Anti-Riot Act of 1968. A federal court has finally called foul on this unconstitutional government bias. The decision, by Judge Cormac J. Carney (a George W. Bush nominee), is in United States of America v. Rundo et al. The defendants, both self-avowed white supremacists, moved to dismiss the charges against them under the Anti-Riot Act because the government violated the equal protection clause when it failed to prosecute anarcho-Marxists for identical activity.
