Reining In Israel

Original Article

The Wall Street Journal has a long article about the Biden administration’s efforts to stop Israel from winning a decisive victory over Gaza: The looming Israeli military plans to invade Rafah have exacerbated tensions between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government and the Biden administration, which has grown increasingly frustrated with its attempts to rein in Israel’s military campaign. The consequences of the distrust between President Biden and Netanyahu, who have spoken 18 times since Hamas’s Oct. 7 assault, have grown only starker in recent days. Biden now appears to be trying to draw a line

Israel did not start this war. Hamas did. They tortured and murdered innocent babies. Why is this lost on the supporters of Hamas. They just underestimated Israel. Bet they won't do that again.

Biden should rein in his own mess on our Southern border (and now the Northern border), before he puts his nose in the affairs of Israel. Israel has every right to defend its borders and to take out Hamas wherever they are, even if it is in a populated area. The people of Gaza were dancing in the streets over what Hamas now they will suffer the consequences of their actions. Pray for Israel and for Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Between now and the November everything that Biden says or does will be tied to him buying enough votes to win that election. With Israel it is buying enough Arab or Muslim votes to win Michigan, yesterday Biden finally traveled to Palestine, Ohio a year late after a big train derailment where he blames the involved railroad in an effort to secure votes in Ohio and nearby Pennsylvania, now Biden’s crew has come out with another student loan cancellation scheme in an effort to buy the votes of young people who own student loan debt. We could go on and on when it comes to Biden attempting to buy votes. Just watch.

It is not surprising that Biden would sacrifice an entire people who are fighting for their mere exisitance, fighting barbarians who slaughtered innocent people including babies just because they are Jews, sacrificing these people for his political future is just who Biden is. This selfish fool has sold us out as well, for money and power, he is a traitor, he is a fool, always has been, and now he is a senile traitorist fool. I am glad the Israelis are not listening to him, they should do what they deem is right for their people and their country and Joe Biden can go to hell! ASAP.

No one and I mean literally no one respects or fears a tired and broken senile old man, not even if he's President. They've likely got their hands on his complete medical records. They know as well as his own wife and doctors how far gone he is.

Has anyone considered that Israel will be disinclined to supply Gaza with water and electricity after this? And that Gaza will be basically uninhabitable at that point?

Simple choice: The civilized people of Israel or the uncivilized savages of Hamas. Biden's problem is all the uncivilized savages voting for him. He wants their money, their voter fraud, and their votes. Biden knows what he did. He sided with them. Netanyahu stated it simply. If Israel laid down their weapons, they would be wiped out. If Hamas laid down their weapons, there would be peace. Hamas chose war, and this is all on them.

Russia is trying to develop a nuclear space weapon that would destroy satellites by creating a massive energy wave when detonated, potentially crippling a vast swath of the commercial and government satellites that the world below depends on to talk on cell phones, pay bills, and surf the internet, according to three sources familiar with US intelligence about the weapon. These sources gave CNN a more detailed understanding of what Russia is working on – and the threat it could pose – than the US government has previously disclosed. Republican Rep.

In recent years, the American car market has been pushed toward becoming a significantly more electric one by the Biden Administration's strict Environmental Protection Agency rules. Those car tailpipe emission rules are so strict that by 2032, two-thirds of all new cars would need to have no emissions at all. But now, after months of pressure from automakers, dealers, labor unions and the other side of the political aisle, the White House may ease up on that plan—a move that will sure to draw the ire of EV proponents and anyone sounding the alarm over global warming. This report comes from the New York Times, citing three unnamed officials

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Joe Biden has spent years implementing programs to fight climate change by advancing renewable energy and imposing tougher regulations on fossil fuels. Much of that work could go up in smoke if his likely rival Donald Trump beats him at the polls in November, according to Republican policy advisers. Former President Trump, who is on track to clinch the Republican nomination, would re-enter the White House with a raft of executive orders to expand oil, gas and coal development, they said. That would include ending a pause on new LNG export permits, scrapping electric vehicle mandates and once again withdrawing the United States

Ukrainian troops have withdrawn from the key battleground town of Avdiivka in the east of the country, which could pave the way for a Russian advance as the war nears its second anniversary. The withdrawal, announced as Ukraine faces acute shortages of ammunition with U.S. military aid delayed for months in Congress, aimed to save troops from being fully surrounded by Russian forces after months of fierce fighting, Kyiv said. Most of the city’s pre-war population of 32,000 people has already left, and the town has been almost completely destroyed.

The 2024 forecast of 2.01% of GDP is a 28% increase over 2023 outlays.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ), the United Nations’ judicial body for handling disputes among countries, declined Friday to block Israel from undertaking military operations in Rafah, Gaza, against the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. South Africa, which is pursuing a separate legal action against Israel for supposed “genocide” in Gaza, brought an urgent application to the ICJ on Monday, hours after Israel rescued two hostages from Rafah. South Africa complained of an “assault” but left out the hostages. The ICJ responded by referring to its interim ruling on “genocide” last month, reminding Israel to abide by its obligations.

Less than a week after Russian President Vladimir Putin put on an intelligent, reasonable, face for visiting American journalist Tucker Carlson, the bloodsoaked visage of a Russian boyar or vozhd appeared, with a report from Russian officials that top dissident Alexei Navalny was dead in an Arctic prison. According to the Associated Press: Alexei Navalny, the fiercest foe of Russian President Vladimir Putin who crusaded against official corruption and staged massive anti-Kremlin protests, died in prison Friday, Russian authorities said. Dissidents said they didn't believe it because nothing the Russian government says is to be believed. But it doesn't help the Russian government any to report this, given the global condemnation
Immigration Drives Male Population ‘Boom’

The latest demographic data from Canada showed the male population increasing by 3.4 percent, while females grew by only 2.9 percent, the widest disparity between the sexes in almost half a century. Analysts pointed to heavy immigration from military-age males as a driving force in the demographic shift. Bloomberg BNN noted on Thursday that almost all of Canada’s net population growth is due to immigration, “especially among foreign students and temporary workers.” “From the late 1970s to around the early 2010s, Canada’s population increasingly skewed female, but the trend has been reversing

Democrats disapprove of the U.S. government’s handling of migrant crossings at the southern border more now than at any other recorded point during Joe Biden’s presidency, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center. Seventy-three percent of surveyed Democrats rate the government’s handling of the influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border as “somewhat bad” or “very bad,” according to the report — only 11 percentage points lower than Democrats’ disapproval ratings in 2019 during Donald Trump’s presidency. The numbers from the report released Thursday mark a grim trend for Biden.

Two major gas pipelines in Iran were allegedly attacked by Israel this week, according to a Friday report by The New York Times, citing an IRGC-affiliated military strategist and two Western officials. The two pipelines were hit in multiple locations simultaneously. The report said that the attack on the gas pipelines caused disruption in several Iranian provinces regarding "the flow of heat and cooking gas to millions of people." Israel has targeted Iranian nuclear and military sites in the past, with assassinations being reported of Iranian commanders and scientists - whether they were located in Iran or not.

A third year has passed since the death of Rush Limbaugh. The day of the sad news, millions of people were sensible of a loss. Something they depended on for reassurance, reinforcement, confidence, strength, amusement, and interest was now gone and never would come again. Limbaugh was an optimist, and optimists are like bonfires. The shivering gathered about him for warmth -- those fearing an awful and incomprehensible transformation in their country, those to whom the triumph of Marxism looked to be inevitable. His listeners had this consolation -- that at the appointed hour the ebullient voice would issue from the radio,

Writing in Aeon, professional provocateur Gavin Evans leads the band of God-slayers with his February 15 article, entitled “There Was No Jesus,” rehashing old arguments that Jesus was the invention of a group of unscrupulous hucksters who sought to create a religion around a myth of their own creation.

This case could possibly be the start of the end of the United States as we know it if it is not overturned. The unprecedented lawfare suits against America’s favorite president has not put a dent in his popularity with voters. In fact, it is having the opposite effect.

This story will make you miss the days when education was about actually learning skills and subjects that would help to equip children for adulthood. A Seattle high school issued a reading assignment featuring nine supposed traits of white supremacy. The assignment in question dives deep into progressive racial theory and is ostensibly intended to promote critical thinking about America’s societal structures. But a closer look reveals its actual aim: To further indoctrinate children into progressive ideology on race issues. Students in a Seattle English class were told that their love of reading and writing is a characteristic of “white supremacy,” in the latest Seattle Public Schools high school controversy.

One of the tricks of knowing when a leftist judge is pulling a fast one is if the decision is really, really long. (snip) Indeed, generally speaking, in my thirty-five years as an attorney, I’ve never seen an appellate court uphold damages so disproportionate to actual injuries suffered—and again, there were no injuries in this case. The fact that there were no injuries in itself means that the case, from ig to zack, denied Trump due process. I don’t see the judgment surviving an appeal, that’s for sure. (snip) And so, I think that this latest assault on Trump, rather than filling people with revulsion, will bring many around.
