JERUSALEM — Israelis have a lot on their plate these days: instability on its borders with Lebanon and Syria, the threat from Iran, the prospect of more normalization deals with once-hostile Arab states, domestic political scandals and a nasty surge in COVID-19 cases. But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his fellow Israelis may be excused for obsessively refreshing their American political news feeds. In a country where President Trump is broadly popular, Mr. Netanyahu may be among the foreign leaders with the most at stake — and the most to lose — in U.S. elections next week.

Supposedly, Israelis support Trump 60+%, but keep this in mind. i24 like the rest of Israeli media is left just as much as our media with the exception that they routinely have good reports on the IDF. Therefore, this number may be understated. OTOH, the corruption allegations against Bibi will and have been abetted by the media though not to the extent our media has promoted the anti-Trump coup.

Cable news ratings exploded in October across Fox News, CNN and MSNBC as all three networks saw record numbers for the month, with Fox News having the highest-rated month in cable news history, according to Nielsen Media Research. The month included a positive coronavirus test for the president, who was briefly hospitalized, and a fever pitch on the presidential campaign trail. The month also included a presidential debate, a vice presidential debate and multiple town hall events. Fox News led the way with a whopping 4.9 million total viewers in prime time,

Four years ago, Donald J. Trump presented himself to the American people as a brash, vulgar, gold-plated reality star seeking a political career in which he promised to bounce the entrenched Washington political set off the ropes of a pro wrestling ring and pound them into the canvas. It all seemed so self-serving and absurd. Sure, he had built a massive real estate empire and lent his name to gleaming skyscrapers. But he had no track record whatsoever in the political world. We had no reason to trust that Mr. Trump would be a good steward of the economy, a fierce defender of our homeland or even a protector

Since June, a group of Northwestern University students has demanded that the school disband its campus police force and sever ties with the Evanston, Illinois police department. On Saturday, October 17, their protests became unruly. Members of NU Community Not Cops (NUCNC) sprayed anti-cop graffiti on private and public property, broke a window at the local Whole Foods market, set at least one trash can on fire, and burned a school banner. The following Monday, Northwestern’s president denounced the violence in the most unequivocal of terms—and was himself promptly denounced as a racist for having done so. But the president, Morton Schapiro, to his enormous credit, has neither apologized

Democrats want to portray the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett as a raw power play that was antithetical to our democracy. Yet, public opinion polls tell us that, had Justice Barrett’s nomination been put to a vote by the American people, she would have been confirmed by a margin comparable to or greater than the one provided by the Senate. The Senate confirmed Barrett by a vote of 52-48. A Gallup poll found that, by a split of 51-46, the public favored confirming her. A Morning Consult poll put the split at 51-28. An earlier survey by Morning Consult, taken shortly after the nomination was announced,

Families and businesses are watching their bottom lines and stretching each dollar. But House Democrats are pushing a plan to prevent America’s schools from doing the same thing. The proposed HEROES Act, laying out their demands for the next federal COVID-19 relief package, pledges $175 billion to K-12 public schools to help cover pandemic-related costs and backfill lost state revenues. But to qualify, states must keep spending as much on education as they averaged during the past three years from now until mid-2022.

The 2020 presidential contest has been surrounded by dramatic events, by plague, protest and economic collapse, but as a campaign it’s been remarkably devoid of twists and turns. The polling has been mostly stable, the challenger has run the virtual equivalent of a front-porch campaign and mostly suppressed his own pugilistic instincts, and the incumbent has been unsurprisingly himself. Which makes it fitting, maybe, that the most interesting controversy of the campaign’s final week is a news media meta argument about how a story should be covered.

The Black man fatally shot by Philadelphia police officers on Monday was an aspiring rapper who sometimes rhymed about shooting people, including police officers, and was awaiting trial for allegedly threatening to shoot a woman, according to media reports. Walter Wallace Jr., 27, also rapped about social justice and police injustice on his social media, WPVI-TV reported. Court records obtained by the news outlet also show Wallace had a criminal history. In 2017, he pleaded guilty to robbery, assault and possessing an instrument of crime, according to documents obtained by Fox News.

Protests turned violent in Philadelphia Tuesday night as demonstrators clashed with police, ransacked stores and beat a reporter covering the unrest. The city has been gripped by violence after police officers shot and killed a 27-year-old Black man a day earlier who they said refused to drop his knife as he “advanced towards” them. The man was identified as Walter Wallace Jr. and a part of the incident was caught on video. Police and city officials issued swift statements following the incident and promised an investigation. But their assurances did little to assuage many in the city who see the shooting as another example of a Black man being killed by police

MARTINSBURG, Pa. -- When I saw the U.S. Marine Corps Osprey aircraft fly in, one after another, followed by two Marine choppers including Marine One, I honestly took some offense. This is all spectacle, and frankly inappropriate. Sure, the President needs protection, but here he was obviously deploying federal resources — worse, military resources — to provide a partisan show for his supporters in a purely political event. And at that moment, when "Fortunate Son" started blaring, I couldn't help but dwell on all the arch tweets by my journalist colleagues about President Trump’s fondness for this song.(Snip for tweet)But then I looked around, and supercilious-reporter-Tim-Carney

Hegel said a lot of baffling things, many of which underscore Walter Bagehot’s observation that “in the faculty of writing nonsense, stupidity is no match for genius.” But every now and then, Hegel nailed it. A case in point, I believe, is his declaration, in “The Philosophy of Right,” that “the owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the coming of the dusk.” Gnomic? Yes. But we know what he means. Wisdom, insight (a.k.a. “the owl of Minerva”) arrives at the end, not the beginning, of our explorations.

President Trump has signed an executive order that removes civil-service protections from certain positions within federal government agencies. There has been much whining and gnashing of teeth, but voters should be thrilled. Making policymakers in the Deep State “at-will” employees, who are easier to dismiss if they attempt to obstruct the duly elected president’s agenda, is a good thing. Not being bound to hire according to a career-progression ladder will also allow agencies to bring in new people with new ideas. This will be true whether or not Donald Trump is president. The need to reduce protections within the civil service became apparent when training based on critical race

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), currently the youngest representative in the legislative branch, may be looking at even higher office in the future. During an interview with Vanity Fair, the democratic-socialist congresswoman revealed that she doesn’t “know if I’m really going to be staying in the House forever, or if I do stay in the House, what that would look like.”“I don’t see myself really staying where I’m at for the rest of my life,” she added, which could simply imply seeking a congressional leadership position or moving beyond the House of Representatives.

“Generations yet unborn” will come to regret Amy Coney Barrett’s elevation to the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor, shortly before a majority voted on Monday to confirm the pro-life, conservative judge onto the bench.Schumer was not likely thinking of unborn babies in the womb; his next sentence began with an allusion to climate change. But the same sentence also included a reference to abortion, as he lamented what he described as “reactionary state legislatures curtail[ing] a woman’s right to choose.”

On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson did something he’d never done before: He dedicated his entire show to a single interview. The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. Bobulinski powerfully confirms that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the transaction, which had its beginnings when Joe was still Vice President.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez launched a profane rant against President Trump and Republicans during a series of new interviews published Wednesday. The New York Democrat made the comments to Vanity Fair soon after The New York Times reported Mr. Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes the year he ran for president and in his first year in the White House. Mr. Trump has called the report a “total fake.” “These are the same people saying that we can’t have tuition-free public colleges because there’s no money,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said, “when these motherf–ers are only paying $750 a year in taxes.”

Joe Biden called President Donald Trump “George” on Sunday, as if he were running against George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, or maybe George Washington, before catching himself. (Or being helped by someone outside the camera’s view.) He appeared to be a tired old man in need of help with his everyday life. Yet at both debates, though he made mistakes, he looked to be far more sentient, at times even sharp, in stark contrast to the doddering senior citizen we usually see. How can this happen? “What kind of country we’re gonna be,” Biden asked in a weekend interview

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that she will be a member of the Electoral College for New York this year, and that she plans to vote against President Trump. The former New York senator won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College to Trump in 2016, and supports abolishing the institution. “I’m an elector in New York,” Clinton told SiriusXM’s “Signal Boost” in an interview. Clinton will cast one of New York’s 29 electoral votes when the 538-member body gathers in December to formalize the Nov. 3 election results. “I’m sure I’ll get to vote for Joe [Biden] and [Sen.

He made a clean getaway. Looters were seen in a series of videos trashing Philadelphia stores Tuesday night—with one even blithely wheeling out a large washing machine. A heavy police presence with the backing of the National Guard mostly prevented disturbing scenes of violence that marred the City of Brotherly Love on Monday after the fatal shooting of Walter Wallace. But police said about 1,000 people instead headed to shopping areas to loot and trash stores, leaving wild scenes of complete destruction in their wake. One video showed two cursing women inside a small fashion boutique—which someone sharing it on Twitter said was black-owned
