'They need help': Biden says he will put
together 'major package' for Palestinians
whose homes have been destroyed in
fighting with Israel and will ensure
the money doesn’t go 'to Hamas to
rebuild their weapons systems'

President Biden promised to help Palestinians who lost their homes during 11 days of Israeli strikes on Gaza as he offered prayers Friday for a ceasefire to hold. During a press conference to mark the visit of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, he insisted he remained committed to Israeli security. But he struck a careful balance between both sides as he announced plans to help Palestinians in Gaza rebuild their lives so long as Hamas militants, who rained rockets on Israel, were not able to rebuild their armaments. 'I am prepared to put together, and am going to attempt to put together, a major package


*, Emily Goodin, and Geoff Earle
We give money to Hamas and the Palestinians so they can buy rockets to aim at Israel, and we give Israel 3 billion dollars or so each year so they can buy missiles and aircraft to defend themselves against Hamas. And when they duke it out, we buy more missiles for Israel, give more money to Hamas, and rebuild the damaged areas, no doubt with 10% set aside for The Big Guy, all while leaving our own borders completely undefended and stocking our military with homosexuals and transgenders. Is this a great country or what?

Screwum!!! Take care of Americans first! And put American vets at the front of the line. We have NO responsibility to rebuild the rest of the world, let alone the palestinians.

No, no, no! How about all these newly-homeless Palestinians get together and get rid of Hamas? I guess Chairman Xiden doesn’t think we understand the concept of money being fungible.

That's like saying federal money can be give to Planned Parenthood and direct that it not be used to fund abortions. Money is fungible. If I give someone a dollar for one purpose that frees up another dollar to use for the prohibited activity. If the Palestinians had to live with the disastrous results of Hamas's actions, they might eventually get tired of it and get rid of Hamas.

The "palestinians" homeland was supposed to be Jordan. They tried to overthrow the government and got kicked out. I believe they then went to Lebanon and ruined a wonderful country with their fighting and hatred. Now they claim they are the original inhabitants of Israel, and no matter how much money we send them, they spend it all on weapons and never quit get around to improving their own people's lives. I guess we have to pay to keep them going because the poor Saudis and other arab states can't afford it. They certainly don't want them, either. Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Saudis are all just arabs. The countries are artificial. The "palestinians" are just their proxies to attack Israel.

Thank you, #16. The rich Arab countries use the Palestinians to do their dirty work. They want Israel destroyed as much as Hamas does but they want to keep their hands clean. It is not the responsibility of the United States government to rebuild what was destroyed. We are suckers for allowing them to use us in this way. We are destroying ourselves financially each time we send more money to foreign countries when we cannot afford it. OBiden’s illegitimate installation was the signal to begin the unprovoked attacks on Israel. The bad guys believed they had a kindred spirit in old Joe, and apparently, they were right.

This is a repeat of what happened during and after everyone of those past war-ceasefire cycles between Hamas and Israel in Gaza. We are not supposed to even think that any of that US money that Biden will now send to the Palestinians will be diverted and skimmed off through corruption both by US and foreign entities and individuals? Hamas is the paramilitary arm of the Palestinians who run the Gaza Strip, and Biden claims that they won’t get any of the US money that he intends to send over there. Give us a break! Why is the US responsible in anyway to rebuild anything over there as it was the Palestinians who are responsible for the most recent conflict and damage when they started the war by firing rockets into Israel?

Those beautiful beachfront homes in Gaza once belonged to Israelis who were evicted in the name of some "peace" treaty in the past. Joe is now repeating the solutions proposed by both Carter and Obama to give Hamas what it wants so they will behave. The US Government stupidly has not learned that terrorists never go away when they know they can get more out of you. Why doesn't Joe copy his solutions from some of our better presidents instead of emulating our two biggest losers? Thanks to him we now have Three Stooges on the history books. No wonder they want to change history.

Let's send "peace keepers" to build a democratic nation in Palestine. We can send some "woke" general and his staff, and they can give away cash and arrange elections, complete with purple fingers and toothless smiles from the electorate. We can send engineers to help rebuild the destroyed "Metro" system, too! People have to get around. If the various Arab states wanted to send money, they would. They are done with Hamas. Every dollar sent to "Palestine" will subsidize the Iranian Revolutionary Guard supporting Hamas and providing the military muscle. Where do these billions come from to be palletized and sent overseas? Congress? '22 can't come soon enough.

In one week, there were nine cases of Covid-19 in fully vaccinated members of the New York Yankees organization: one player, three coaches and five team staff. The revelation has led to questions about vaccine efficacy and fears of super-strength variant strains. But experts say these cases show the vaccine is working, and testing remains a useful tool. A Major League Baseball spokesperson confirmed to CNN Wednesday that eight of those nine cases were asymptomatic.

Jason Jones was driving to Kansas City last week when he saw a couple stranded on the side of the road with a blown out tire. “He was kind of stand-offish, like kind of wish I hadn’t stopped, but I kept asking and they kept saying yes,” Jones told Fox4.

The two jail employees tasked with guarding pedophile Jeffrey Epstein the night of his suicide in a Manhattan jail have admitted to falsifying records—but will skirt time behind bars under a deal with prosecutors. Tova Noel and Michael Thomas admitted that they “willfully and knowingly” lied on forms stating that they’d made the required rounds checking on inmates the night of Epstein’s August 2019 suicide. Prosecutors said the guards were sleeping and surfing the web when they should have been monitoring the maximum security federal prisoner, who had recently been on suicide watch at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.(Snip) Instead, the disgraced duo will

From the beginning of COVID's outbreak in China, there's been a steady drumbeat of information saying the Chinese created COVID in a lab and, accidentally or on purpose, unleashed it on the world. The World Health Organization, the Democrats, the Deep State, and the tech tyrants managed to suppress that information in 2020, but it's roared back this year. Tucker Carlson put the pieces together in his opening monologue and, with help from Chinese scientist Li-Meng Yan, makes it plain that, even if China didn't deliberately release the virus, it turned it into a weapon of biological warfare by withholding information about it. Here's Tucker's monologue.

Scott Thatcher and his wife Angela were born in California and love the sun-kissed Golden State. But two months ago they sold their home, packed up their belongings and travelled 1,700 miles with their three sons to start a new life in Texas.Despite earning good salaries with secure jobs as a driver and a nurse, the family’s combined income of about $140,000 (£99,000) a year was not enough to prosper in their town of Modesto, about 90 minutes east of San Francisco.‘We were surviving but not thriving,’ said Scott, 35. ‘We were getting by but it felt like we would never really get ahead.’The pandemic was the final straw \

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's vaccine safety group is investigating reports that a 'small number' of teens and young adults who have been vaccinated against coronavirus have experienced heart problems days after receiving their second jab. The condition, known as myocarditis, results in an inflammation of the heart muscle which can occur following certain infections.(Snip) Doctors were first alerted to the possible link between myocarditis and vaccines on May 14. The working group then reviewed the data on myocarditis on May 17. The cases seem appear to be be occurring mainly in adolescents and young adults around four days after their second dose.

Employers say they’re having difficulty filling jobs. Jobless Americans say they want to work. So what’s going on? (Snip) But a recent survey of 1,000 unemployed workers by CNBC and Morning Consult told a different story. Respondents said the trickle-down effect of job openings had not reached them — at least, not yet. Some 87% said they had not received job offers in the last six months. What’s more, 65% of those surveyed said unemployment benefits were not a factor in their rejecting a job. Instead, they cited too-low salary (36%), concerns about COVID-19 (35%) and the need to care

Fox News and Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Jedediah Bila are parting ways, PEOPLE can exclusively announce. [snip] On Fox & Friends Weekend, the conservative TV personality was frequently critical of former President Donald Trump. When Trump publicly called out Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, Bila defended her colleague on Twitter. "Enough with the 3rd grade name-calling," she wrote last April. "Chris is doing his job. The news should not be any president's friend, ally, or buddy. If it bothered you when Obama complained about Fox News, but you're silent on this complete nonsense, then just stop. Seriously. Enough."

Barack Obama was a 'parasite' on the Democrat party who sucked it dry for his reelection and left it saddled with debt, a new book claims. The former President used the party structure as a 'host' for his 2012 campaign for a second term then treated it like a 'husk' to be discarded with $2.4million in debt. Obama's aloof demeanor and professorial detachment masked the reality that he was full of 'self-assured self-regard.' He oversaw the 'pilfering of talent, money, resources, and purpose' away from the Democratic National Committee to his own reelection team.

There’s a new survey out about 2024, and it has great news for President Donald Trump. Even after being shut down on social media and having his primary avenue of communication — Twitter — cut off, turns out the Republican base still wants Trump to run for president again. According to a new McLaughlin & Associates survey, 73% of the base wants Trump to run again in 2024. Even more would vote for him if he did run, with 83% saying they would do so. Those are some pretty big numbers, and it’s clear that it means the base hasn’t moved on from Trump.
