Former President Barack Obama’s onetime speechwriter claimed that reports that President Joe Biden is angry over Israel’s airstrike that killed seven aid workers “only make him look weak.” Jon Favreau said Biden does not deserve credit for being “privately enraged” over the killing of the aid workers because he has not used his position to “leverage” change from the Israeli government to stop its military campaign in Gaza. Biden has received much backlash over his response to the Israel-Hamas war. “The President doesn’t get credit for being ‘privately enraged’ when he still refuses to use leverage to stop the IDF from killing and starving innocent people,” Favreau posted to X

There are no safe spaces in total war. If Obama's side is appalled at the consequences of this war they shouldn't have started it on October 7th.

If there were any innocent people in Gaza then it would make sense to worry about them.

Biden looks weak because he is weak. It shows in just about everything he does.

A Southwest plane came perilously close to hitting LaGuardia Airport's air traffic control tower. Southwest Flight 147 from Nashville to New York veered off course when coming in for a landing on March 23 around 1 pm because of inclement weather. The Boeing 737 plane, which had 150 people on board, came within 67 feet of the control tower. The plane circled the airport once and then swooped down as low as 300 feet, creating panic in the air traffic control tower.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) temporarily suspended its controversial rule requiring private companies to disclose carbon emissions data after it was met with a slew of lawsuits. The rule, which was finalized in March, was immediately met with litigation by a cohort of 25 GOP attorneys general, along with energy companies Liberty Energy and Nomad Proppant Services, and business groups including the Chamber of Commerce, Texas Alliance of Energy Producers and Domestic Energy Producers Alliance. Last month, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a brief administrative stay of the rule while the various lawsuits were consolidated.

Activist investor Nelson Peltz, reflecting on his losing proxy battle with Disney, says he will “watch and wait” to see if the company keeps its promises. If it doesn’t, he told CNBC in an interview Thursday, “you’ll see me again.” Asked by host Jim Cramer if reports were true that his firm, Trian Fund Management, had made $300 million on its Disney investment, Peltz called that figure “dramatically wrong.” When Cramer wondered if the gains were actually in the $1 billion range, Peltz replied, “that sounds more like it.” The wavering performance of Disney’s stock performance, which brought it to multi-year lows last year, was one of the main complaints of Trian,

One of the first places I discovered when I moved to California in the late 1980s was the 99 Cents Only Store. One of my apartments was in walking distance of one, and I could buy a week's groceries for $20. Those halcyon days are long gone, not just for me and others, but for the iconic 99 Cents Only Store. When the company had to raise their price point from $0.99 to $1.01 a few years back, you kind of got the sense they weren't going to outrun this. It was finally the weight of inflation and the COVID pandemic that did them in.

Six months. That's how long it took for President Biden to call for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas terrorists who killed some 1,200 people, raped women, tortured and murdered children, and took more than 200 captives, including American citizens, into the maze of tunnels, spider holes, and underground bunkers known as the Gaza Metro on October 7. According to the White House, Biden on Thursday called for an "immediate ceasefire" and told Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu that "strikes on humanitarian workers" and "the overall humanitarian situation" are "unacceptable." Biden went on to say that "U.S. policy with respect to Gaza will

The Israeli military released the results of an investigation into its unintentional missile strikes on seven World Central Kitchen employees in Gaza, concluding that the incident “should not have occurred” and dismissing two officers who were involved in the botched operation. “Those who approved the strike were convinced that they were targeting armed Hamas operatives and not WCK employees,” the Israel Defense Forces said Friday in a statement. “The strike on the aid vehicles is a grave mistake stemming from a serious failure due to a mistaken identification, errors in decision-making, and an attack contrary to the Standard Operating Procedures.”

Millennials – those born between between 1982 and 2000—comprise the largest American generation, and they’re approaching middle age. HireAHelper, a company that assists people in finding moving services, released its Millennial Migration study in March that revealed that fewer in the age group are relocating than in the past, but when they are, they’re ditching blue states like California, Illinois, and New York for greener pastures in red states like Texas, Florida, and Montana. The first question HireAHelper asked was, why are Millennials mostly staying put? The reasons vary, but with out-of-control mortgage rates caused by Bidenflation, many of them can’t buy

GPS is being blocked across swathes of Israel in order to disrupt missiles and drones, as tensions rise with Iran. Iran has vowed to respond after a strike on its consulate building in Syria on Monday - which Israel was widely believed to be behind - killed 13 people, including a senior general. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also announced it was halting all leave for soldiers serving with combat units. It comes a day after reservists were called up to bolster air defence units. Israeli authorities seem to believe an Iranian response is imminent and could come as soon as Friday, which is Quds Day - or Jerusalem Day

Biden spoke with Netanyahu days after an Israeli strike killed several humanitarian aid workers with World Central Kitchen, a charity group that was distributing food to Palestinians in Gaza.

Former adviser to President George W. Bush Karl Rove warned Donald Trump that the former president’s attitude toward Nikki Haley’s supporters threatens his reelection bid this November. Rove claimed that with the electoral makeup of the 2024 election so close, Trump should not upset supporters of the former U.N. ambassador because their lack of support for him could benefit President Joe Biden instead. More than 76,000 voters chose Haley in Tuesday night’s Wisconsin primary, representing a significant percentage of voters still not sold on Trump. “Mr. Trump’s attitude to his rivals’ supporters has gone from dismissiveness—’they always bend the knee’—to indifference, saying he doesn’t need ‘too many’ Haley supporters to win

What they're saying: "These policies will put even more pressure on the benefits and premiums of 33 million Medicare Advantage beneficiaries who will be renewing their coverage this fall," said Mike Tuffin, CEO of the insurer trade group AHIP.

I was born in the 1960s, just about the time people decided it was bad for children to be born. Oh, I don’t take it personally. It’s just people started to worry about a “population explosion.” Thanks to antibiotics, vaccines, mosquito eradication and better farming, people weren’t dying off as they had been. But they were still having babies. This led to more people. And quite a few folks — themselves already born — thought that was bad. The most famous is Stanford’s Paul Ehrlich, an entomologist whose bestselling book about people, “The Population Bomb,” promised the Earth a grim Malthusian fate, only a decade or so away.
