"The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable." -- H.L. Mencken

While the Israeli army is taking a pause from slaughtering Palestinian children in Gaza, its routine killing of children in the occupied West Bank persists unabated.

The Israeli army extrajudicially executed an 8-year-old Palestinian child in the city of Jenin on Wednesday.

CCTV footage shows Adam Samer al-Ghoul walking backwards when he suddenly starts running away. As he retreats, he is shot and falls to the ground.

Israeli analysts have not hidden their anger, Wednesday, about footage of Hamas fighters and Israeli prisoners gesturing at each other while being handed to Red Cross teams in the Gaza Strip, Anadolu Agency reports.

Footage circulated as Israeli television stations reported that families of Israeli hostages said their relatives were treated well during their captivity.

However, analysts in Israel consider the footage depicts the “humanity” of “Hamas” fighters and they strongly object to the images.

Political analyst, Yaniv Peleg, said in an article for the right-wing Israel Hayom newspaper that broadcasting the footage on television is detrimental to Israel.

In 2014, Amnesty International said of allegations that Hamas was using human shields:

Amnesty International is monitoring and investigating such reports, but does not have evidence at this point that Palestinian civilians have been intentionally used by Hamas or Palestinian armed groups during the current hostilities to “shield” specific locations or military personnel or equipment from Israeli attacks. In previous conflicts Amnesty International has documented that Palestinian armed groups have stored munitions in and fired indiscriminate rockets from residential areas in the Gaza Strip in violation of international humanitarian law. Reports have also emerged during the current conflict of Hamas urging residents to ignore Israeli warnings to evacuate. However, these calls may have been motivated by a desire to minimize panic and displacement, in any case, such statements are not the same as directing specific civilians to remain in their homes as “human shields” for fighters, munitions, or military equipment. Under international humanitarian law even if “human shields” are being used Israel’s obligations to protect these civilians would still apply.”

The U.S. and Israel have been planning the construction of brand-new trade routes, which are only possible through normalization agreements signed between Tel Aviv and the Arab World.

So, what is the Ben Gurion Canal, India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor, and why is this so important to Washington’s considerations when backing the current Israeli onslaught on Gaza? Could the reason the U.S. is supporting Israel’s war against Gaza, full force, be because of a trade route?

Lately, there has been some talk of what is known as the ‘Ben Gurion Canal’ Project, which would essentially be an alternative trade route created through Israel-Palestine, which would be inorganically carved out of the earth to replace Egypt’s Suez Canal, which of course is crucial to international shipping at this point, and would bring in significant revenue for the Israelis.

In fact, after Israel and the United Arab Emirates normalized ties in 2020, there was a lot of talk about bringing this project to the forefront of the economic cooperation between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. Then, in 2021, there was even more chatter about this as the United Arab Emirates and Israel wanted to reap the benefits of providing an alternative trade route to the Suez Canal.

Cops are seen tossing a woman to the ground and savagely spraying her and other protesters in the face with CS gas as she screams at the top of her lungs pleading for help during the January 6 Capitol riot in harrowing police body footage.

The woman, in a white coat, sunglasses and a black hat is seen falling backward to the ground after getting shoved by cops.

An officer yells, “Go back! Go back! Go Back! as protesters attempt to render the woman’s aid.

The police then shove the other protesters as they attempt to pick her up.

“Stand down — stand down!” a cop yells as demonstrators raise their hands in the air.

A man in a black leather jacket is seen wrapping his arms around a female demonstrator and turning his back to the police, in what appears to be an effort to shield her from getting hit by the cops.

“I’m blind! I can’t breathe,” the woman in the white coat screams in a panic after getting tossed to the ground by police and sprayed with tear gas.

Webmaster addition: CS gas is what was used against that church full of women and children in Waco Texas. It's actually illegal to use on enemy troops in wartime!

Someone familiar with the matter, who asked to remain anonymous to discuss the private meeting, said that during a closed-door meeting with Republican lawmakers on Wednesday, GOP leaders brought up the prospect of a vote, the Associated Press reported.

“While we take no pleasure in the proceedings here, we have a responsibility to do it,” Johnson said at a press conference Wednesday with the leaders of the investigation.

We know that women are being robbed of the opportunity to win championships as society allows males to continue to compete against women.

It is a fact that males competing in women’s sports will always guarantee unfair outcomes. Up until five years ago, everyone and their grandmas knew this. This is why we had a system in place that separated competitions based on biology.

Lynne Pinches still knows this. That is why she refused to condone this un-leveled playing field at the expense of women.

Pinches ceded before the first break at the final of the Women's Champions of Champions tournament after being matched to play against Chris "Harriet" Haynes. Twelve days later, she got her deserved prize and applause from her fellow players.

A New York City firefighter diagnosed with permanent heart damage after he received the COVID-19 vaccine is suing the City of New York and its Fire Pension Fund.

O’Brian Pastrana, whose injury forced him to retire, filed the suit after the Fire Pension Fund’s Board of Trustees in June denied his request for more substantial disability benefits, the New York Post reported.

The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) Board of Health doctors concluded Pastrana’s heart damage was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, which was mandated for all New York City workers as a condition of employment. He is now living on only half his regular salary.

Pastrana received his first dose of the vaccine on Oct. 29, 2021. He suffered an immediate anaphylactic response, with hives, swelling of the lips and other symptoms that persisted for weeks.

GOP candidate Abe Hamadeh condemned his former opponent, Attorney General Kris Mayes, as a “third world dictator” for punishing two Cochise County supervisors over their slight delay in certifying the 2022 election results.

On Monday, Mayes indicted Cochise County Supervisors Peggy Judd and Tom Crosby with felony charges of election officer interference and conspiracy.

“Third world elections lead to third world dictators,” said Hamadeh. “Mayes is a fraud, she didn’t receive the most votes — and she knows it.”

In December 2022, Cochise County certified election results only after a judge ruled Crosby and Judd, both Republicans, were breaking the law by refusing to sign off on the vote count by the deadline.

Crosby and Judd said they weren't satisfied that the machines used to tabulate ballots were properly certified for use in elections. This prompted lawsuits including one from then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat.

They both received subpoenas earlier this month. Ann English, the lone Democrat on the three-member board and the only supervisor to vote for certification, was not subpoenaed or indicted.

NASA is working to resume science operations of the agency’s Hubble Space Telescope after it entered safe mode Nov. 23 due to an ongoing gyroscope (gyro) issue. Hubble’s instruments are stable, and the telescope is in good health.

The telescope automatically entered safe mode when one of its three gyroscopes gave faulty readings. The gyros measure the telescope’s turn rates and are part of the system that determines which direction the telescope is pointed. While in safe mode, science operations are suspended, and the telescope waits for new directions from the ground.

Hubble first went into safe mode Nov. 19. Although the operations team successfully recovered the spacecraft to resume observations the following day, the unstable gyro caused the observatory to suspend science operations once again Nov. 21. Following a successful recovery, Hubble entered safe mode again Nov. 23.

The team is now running tests to characterize the issue and develop solutions. If necessary, the spacecraft can be re-configured to operate with only one gyro. The spacecraft had six new gyros installed during the fifth and final space shuttle servicing mission in 2009. To date, three of those gyros remain operational, including the gyro currently experiencing fluctuations. Hubble uses three gyros to maximize efficiency, but could continue to make science observations with only one gyro if required.
