The White House is preparing to host a much smaller ceremony for Ramadan amid Arab-American anger at Joe Biden and fears the event would be boycotted by prominent Muslims. Traditionally, the president hosts hundreds of Muslim leaders from around the country for an Eid al-Fitr celebration, which marks the end of Ramadan, the holiest month of the Muslim calendar. But the White House has discussed limiting invitations this year to a smaller group of administration officials and ambassadors from Muslim-majority nations, officials told Politico.

Ceremony? For a religion? What happened to separation of church and state? Or does that only apply to Christians?

And tell me again why the White House is even celebrating Ramadan in the first place? A celebration for a 'political system', not a religion, that celebrates be-heading those who don't follow their edicts, or treats women like trash, or mutilates members?

Ummm...isn't Ramadan associated with the death cult whose holy book teaches the following: "Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them." koran 2:191 "The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them."... koran 9:30 I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. Koran 8:12 "Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood." koran 9:123 "Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam" koran 5:33 "When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them." koran 9:5 "Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable." koran 3:85 "Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies." koran 22:19 "The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them." koran 8:65 "Muslims must not take the infidels as friends." koran 3:28 "Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels." koran 8:60 "We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority." Koran 3:151 So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]." — Koran 47:4, Until muslims rip out these passages from their Korans, then my only choice is to believe they endorse them...and I ain't havin' it.

Biden could always skip the Ramadan celebration and just have a Friday night Seder dinner with some Jewish families. Better yet, how about a big pig roast to celebrate the end of the Ramadan "fast".

The Obama forces behind Brandon are pro-Muslim and anti-Israeli, but after the atrocities on October 7, directly taking Hamas's side against Israel is much more challenging for these people who are trying as best they can to hide the evil within themselves and their allies, some of whom are terrorists. It's nice seeing Islamic furor at Biden, who would like to do everything his old boss tells him to do, but can't because the Israelis were viciously attacked. Let us hope that Hamas is completely wiped out with none left to plan more evil. Wipe the slate completely clean of Hamas. Let none survive.

The case fell into Roberts’ hands because he is in charge of emergency matters arising from the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals.Navarro was accused by the duplicitous January 6 Committee of plotting with another former Trump advisor, Steve Bannon, to block Congress from certifying the 2020 election results.

MANILA, Philippines — Secretary of State Antony Blinken will underscore Washington’s “ironclad commitment” to its alliance with the Philippines on Tuesday, as clashes between Chinese and Filipino forces in the disputed South China Sea turn more hostile, the U.S. State Department said.

Joe Rogan slammed the indictments of Trump during a recent episode of his podcast, calling it the stuff of banana republics. In his criticisms, he singled out Letitia James and Fani Willis, questioning what their real motivations are and suggesting that this looks like nothing more than the targeting of political opponents, which is exactly what it is, of course. This is notable because if Joe Rogan is asking these questions, millions of Americans are thinking the same thing, and not just Trump supporters.

The language of the order strongly suggests the court will take additional action, but it is unclear when. It marks the second time Alito has extended a pause on the law, known as Senate Bill 4,

The Biden administration is expected this week to finalize highly anticipated regulations targeting gas-powered vehicle tailpipe emissions, considered the tip of the spear in its efforts to electrify the transportation sector. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is slated to issue the final rulemaking — which officials have boasted will incentivize greater adoption of electric vehicles (EV), but which opponents have criticized as a de facto mandate — as soon as Wednesday, industry sources told Fox News Digital. The regulations, a key part of President Biden's climate agenda, would ultimately force automakers to more rapidly expand electric options in their fleets beginning in a matter of years.

Now that she has become a burden to the Democratic ticket, Biden can’t fire her. He can’t risk alienating his base. Full stop." That was Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker, in a March 15 piece headlined “For the Country’s Sake, Vice President Harris Should Step Aside,” a move proposed “with all due respect.” If readers wonder how much respect is due, a ballpark figure would be zero, and that was true from the start.
