Six US House of Representatives Democrats returned from an Israel trip accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of “utter disregard for Palestinian lives” and fearing that he is moving toward Gaza’s “total destruction.”

The Democrats — including the most senior Democrat on the House  appropriations committee, Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut — made the comments in a statement issued Friday. They represent the breadth of the party’s ideologies and include several with pro-Israel records.

The statement came as President Joe Biden said he would airdrop assistance into the Gaza Strip after more than 100 Gaza Palestinians died during a chaotic aid delivery under disputed circumstances on Thursday.

British politician George Galloway who has registered a landslide victory in a parliamentary by-election advocating for Gaza said he has “arrived with a fresh mandate to stop the slaughter in Gaza.”

Galloway on Thursday claimed a stunning victory in the Rochdale by-election.

“The first thing I am going to do on Wednesday – Prime Minister’s Questions – is I’m going to tell the prime minister that I have arrived with a fresh mandate, the only member of the House to do so, with the fresh mandate to stop the slaughter in Gaza,” Galloway said in an exclusive interview with Press TV on Friday.

“A ceasefire is necessary but not sufficient. A temporary pause, a humanitarian pause, a simple ceasefire is not enough. We need to an end to the occupation. We need the total withdrawal of the siege of Gaza,” he said.

“And we need the recognition of the Palestinian right to self-determination enshrined in international law, enshrined in UN Security Council resolutions, enshrined in Oslo agreements, all ignored. And Oslo agreement is now dead and buried. It’s been ignored for so long,” he said.   

“Some 700 thousand illegal settlers are now living on the parts of Palestine that was supposed to be the Palestine state,” he noted.

For centuries, any sort of Russian success (particularly the military ones) has been attributed to factors such as the weather, terrain, allied countries and their technologies (or even the enemy's supposedly "stolen" knowledge), etc. The notorious Russian winter is allegedly the primary "culprit" for most of the Eurasian giant's battlefield successes, be it against the Teutonic Knights, Mongols, Napoleon, Hitler, etc. It supposedly "helped" Russia win the most important battles of the earlier years of WW2, including at Moscow (1941) and Stalingrad (1942-1943). On the other hand, when battles such as the one at Kursk happen (July-August 1943) and when a Russian victory cannot be attributed to the harsh winter, the political West usually resorts to simplistically racist propaganda, such as the idea that "the Germans ran out of bullets".

The start of Russia's special military operation (SMO) in Ukraine proved that such self-serving nonsense is anything but a thing of the past, as nearly a carbon copy of such fantasies persists to this very day. What's more, it could be worse in our times, as even Nazi Germany showed respect for Soviet/Russian military capabilities, while the modern-day political West not only keeps insisting that Moscow is allegedly "technologically backward", but is also basing its entire fighting doctrine on such false premises. In order to keep that narrative alive, the belligerent power pole needs to keep its populace under the illusion that Russia is supposedly "so weak" that it's impossible for it to win against the Neo-Nazi junta. And yet, the political West still somehow needs to explain the absolute debacle of the Kiev regime's much-touted counteroffensive.

Russophobia has always been present in the political West. Whether it’s simply the fear of a near-peer adversary or perhaps the age-old sea power (thalassocracy) vs. a land power (tellurocracy) competition, the fact is that the belligerent power pole really does not like Russia, to put it mildly. Moscow has been trying to find common ground with the political West for centuries. However, that seems all but impossible, as the latter stubbornly refuses to engage with the Eurasian giant. It can even be argued that this has been the defining characteristic of European and global geopolitics, pushing the “old continent” and the world into several destructive conflicts. Interestingly, the leading Western power, the United States, doesn’t really have a long history of Russophobia, unlike many European countries.

After WWII and the advent of the (First) Cold War, the enmity between America and Russia became the standard in the global geopolitical arena. And yet, even then, a level of mutual respect existed, while international treaties were largely respected and played a significant role in keeping the balance of power relatively intact. The unfortunate dismantling of the Soviet Union put an end to this, especially after neocons and Atlanticists took power in Washington DC. However, of all US allies, vassals and satellite states, there’s one that makes even such endemically Russophobic countries like Poland or the Baltic states seem “moderate enough” – the United Kingdom. London’s Russophobia is so deeply ingrained in its geopolitical strategy, even when it was officially allied to Moscow, both during the Napoleonic and World Wars.

Another scandal is gaining momentum in Europe. NATO warmongers reveal their own secrets, confirming all Moscow’s statements from the very beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, which NATO leaders used to call “Russian propaganda.” The war of NATO against Russia in Ukraine is based on lies and brainwashing, but sometimes these lies can no longer be hidden. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz recently confirmed one of the main claims of “Russian propaganda”, which NATO has denied for years.

Scholz explained that he would not to supply Ukraine with German long-range Taurus missiles, because he did not want to send German troops to Ukraine as Britain and France do. Berlin is allegedly not willing to become a “participant in the war.”

Thus, Scholz officially confirmed that Storm Shadow missiles are aimed at their targets with the help of the British and French military deployed in Ukraine. These missiles are mainly used for the attacks in the Russian rear areas, including in Crimea.

The deployment of NATO military in Ukraine was confirmed by numerous reports and different evidences from the frontlines as well as by the official claims by the Russian military and intelligence services; but Kiev’s Western partners and the MSM continued to assure their public that there are no Western military in Ukraine, not even mercenaries.

London was outraged by the claims of the German leader but did not deny them. Following this statement, the German Chancellor was criticized for disclosing classified information that could “endanger British personnel on the ground and help the Russians.”

A published conversation between German Bundeswehr officers is astonishing but Russia has been completely certain about NATO military activities in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the Antalya Diplomacy Forum.

"You know, of course, on the one hand, it is astonishing, yet it is not on the other. I have already mentioned in my previous answers that we are completely certain of the participation of NATO servicemen, sometimes disguised as mercenaries, or otherwise as some people who do not belong to the armed forces of NATO countries," he said.

"Our NATO colleagues have been absolutely caught red-handed. I don’t know how they will explain this to their people," the top Russian diplomat added.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, by saying that NATO and Russia could end up fighting each other if Ukraine is defeated, proved that the US has a plan for it, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a diplomatic conference in Antalya.

"The meaning of this statement is that if Ukraine loses, NATO will have to go against Russia. In a Freudian slip he blurted out what they had in mind. Before that, everyone was saying: We can't let Ukraine lose, because [Russian President Vladimir] Putin will not stop at this and will take over the Baltics, Poland, Finland. But it turns out, according to Mr. Austin's open, unambiguous statement, it's the other way round. We do not have such plans and cannot have them, but the Americans do," the minister said.

According to Lavrov, Europe is currently the main victim of the US policy of "dragging Ukraine into NATO."

"All major expenses have been shifted to Europe. People are living increasingly worse, energy resouces have rocketed in price manyfold, compared with what it could have been if the Americans had not blown up the Nord Stream gas pipelines," the minister said.

All Ukrainian allies sent their intelligence officers to this country, where they help in testing new weapons, among other things, Le Monde reported, citing a Ukrainian diplomatic source.

"All allied states are present in Ukraine. These are not combat units, but representatives of all intelligence agencies, for example, are present there," the source said.

He stated his satisfaction that the reinforcement of the allied military presence has been "in the air" since December.

"If there are arms shipments, there must also be people who give information on how to use this equipment on the ground," he added. "Ukraine is also being used as a proving ground for new vehicles. Drones are being tested there. Such specialists, of course, are on their posts."

Yes, really.

“All too often, I hear leaders talk about providing everyone with dignity and respect like it’s an aspirational goal, that ‘s not good enough,” said Fram.

“Dignity and respect is the bare minimum, it’s the floor of where we can be, we must set our sights higher and focus on intentional inclusivity, because there are still far too many people out there, not just LGBTQ individuals, that feel marginalized, shut out or discriminated against,” he added.

A far-right Israeli minister has hailed the regime’s soldiers who killed more than 100 Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“We must give complete support to our heroic fighters operating in Gaza, who acted excellently against a Gazan mob that tried to harm them,” Itamar Ben-Gvir, the so-called “national security” minister, said in a statement on Thursday.

He also reiterated his demand to prevent the entry of humanitarian aid to Gaza, claiming that it “endangers” Israeli soldiers.

Earlier on Thursday, Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid near al-Nabulsi roundabout in Gaza City, killing at least 112 people and injuring hundreds of others.

The Zionist occupation forces send food into the northern Gaza strip to then kill starving Palestinians who try to collect it.

Food aid reaches north Gaza for first time in weeks, Israeli officials sayAP, Feb 28 2024

Aid convoys carrying food reached northern Gaza this week, Israeli officials said on Wednesday, the first major delivery in a month to the devastated, isolated area, where the UN has warned of worsening starvation among hundreds of thousands of Palestinians amid Israel’s offensive.

Across Gaza, more than 576,000 people, a quarter of the population, are a step away from famine, the UN says.

But northern Gaza in particular has been gutted by hunger. The north has largely been cut off and much of it has been levelled since Israeli ground troops invaded in late October.

Several hundred thousand Palestinians are believed to remain there, and many have been reduced to eating animal fodder to survive.

The majority of Palestinians in Rafah live in an area that is roughly the size of Heathrow Airport. The city is cramped and unsanitary. It is surrounded on three sides by Israeli ground forces and on the fourth side by the 20 ft high Egyptian border wall. For all practical purposes, Rafah is a prison, the only difference being that, in a prison, the inmates are fed. In Rafah, no one is fed even though there are nearly 2,000 humanitarian trucks lined up beyond the Rafah Crossing waiting to deliver food to the starving population. The humanitarian convoy is being blocked by Israeli forces that are acting on orders from top military leaders. Ostensibly, Israel is depriving the Palestinians of food to create a strong incentive for them to flee the country when the Egyptian border is breached. When that happens, the western media will characterize the exodus as a “voluntary migration”, a designation that downplays the reality of ethnic cleansing.

On Thursday, Israel launched a surprise attack on Palestinians who had gathered at food trucks in Gaza City. According to numerous reports, more than 100 people were gunned down while trying to get desperately needed food. Here’s a short recap of what took place:

There are all of these different explanations for censorship.

When this first started, with me, in 2017, they said that saying mean things on the internet would cause people to kill themselves. Seriously, that was the argument. You can look it up.

Then you got the “election meddling” and “Covid disinformation.” We always hear about “hate speech,” but frankly, that hasn’t ever really been the main driver of censorship. It is all of these other weird things, which are much more vague and confusing. This is partially because if the rules were “just don’t say nigger,” you wouldn’t really be able to censor all that much.

The current explanations for censorship allow wide swaths of speech to be censored without specific explanation.

Under cover of fear for MPs’ safety, Labour leader Keir Starmer has helped the ruling Tories paint as villains anyone opposed to Israel’s slaughter of children

For the best part of a decade now, the British establishment has been weaponising antisemitism against critics of Israel, claiming as its biggest scalp the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

He lost the 2019 general election – and stepped down as leader – amid a barrage of smears that he had indulged, if not stoked, antisemitism in the party’s wider ranks.

Corbyn is the only major British party leader to have prioritised the rights of Palestinians over Israel’s oppression of them. He was finally drummed out of the parliamentary party by his successor, Keir Starmer, in 2020 for pointing out that antisemitism in Labour had been “dramatically overstated for political reasons”.

On the surface, it was funny.

Google’s “Gemini” AI was supposed to make images after users gave it a prompt. The images essentially purged whites from their own history and seemingly from all positive representation.

Did you know that all the popes were apparently non-white and some were female? There were no white men among the Founding Fathers, who were not really “Fathers” at all but proud women of color along with some American Indians. The Vikings were black too — but then again, pop culture has already moved in that direction. Perhaps AI is merely catching up. Users on X had great fun challenging others to “try to make Gemini make an image of a white man.” Some just could not do it.

None of this is surprising. When ChatGPT and other Large Language Models (LLMs) hit the business world, “civil rights leaders” immediately demanded that the models be changed to accommodate their ideology. Their media allies dutifully echoed and amplified the demands, with the New York Times memorably asking, “Who is making sure the AI machines aren’t racist?” Someone must, because if AI is fed pure data, it will generate “disparate impact,” which is unacceptable and arguably illegal.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) called taming bias in AI the “civil rights issue of our time.” This is true on two levels. First, there must always be a “civil rights issue” to justify government intervention, redistribution of wealth, and media panic. Second, reality is typically seen to have a “racist” bias, and there must always be efforts by government to cripple emerging technologies lest people speak forbidden truths too openly. The Biden administration duly decreed that “irresponsible uses of AI can lead to and deepen discrimination, bias, and other abuses in justice, healthcare, and housing.” Thus, landlords, contractors, and other professions were banned from using AI algorithms to “exacerbate discrimination,” and the Department of Justice is training people to prosecute these new civil rights crimes.

America’s Newspaper of Political Record—the UK’s Daily Mail—has posted a first-class op-ed by Donald Trump:

’Joe Biden created this illegal migrant invasion—and only I can stop it’: As BOTH 2024 frontrunners campaign at the border today, DONALD TRUMP gives Daily Mail his unflinching view of America’s No1 election issue. So where do YOU stand?, February 29, 2024.

Trump writes:

…do not be deceived. The abolition of America’s borders is Joe Biden’s policy. The mass-migration of millions of illegal aliens into the United States is Joe Biden’s plan. This is Joe Biden’s invasion.

When I left office, we handed Biden the most secure border in U.S. history…

When Joe Biden came into office, he willfully and deliberately obliterated every strong border policy I put into place and launched the largest border invasion in American history.

The extraordinary nation-breaking scale of this influx must not be forgotten: see James Fulford’s Illegal Border Crossing Numbers Worst EVER (See Chart) Which Is Why Biden Admin Released Numbers On Saturday.

Trump, not surprisingly, is fully alert to the political implications:

…do not be deceived. The abolition of America’s borders is Joe Biden’s policy. The mass-migration of millions of illegal aliens into the United States is Joe Biden’s plan…

The very first bill Biden sent to Congress was a bill to turn illegal aliens into voting citizens.

I feel like I’m watching the film “Don’t Look Up”. We all know that the comet is headed straight toward us, but our society paralyzes itself with self-interest, corruption and politics until the avoidable inevitable happens.

Israel’s genocide is proceeding according to plan, and it looks like we won’t have to wait long for its accomplishment. In return for $10 billion, Egypt will accept the stampeding masses of desperate, starving and terrified Palestinians after a false flag atrocity that will be blamed on Hamas, including demolition of part of the razorwire-festooned border wall through which the mostly women and children will be driven, by bombs raining from the skies and relentless bullets from the muzzles of Israel’s valiant young soldiers, creating a path of corpses and pieces of corpses. 

Most of Gaza Strip Is Now a Wasteland. Children are Being Starved. Military Intervention and Israeli Embargo Are Necessary

Of course Egypt was lying about creating a camp for 60,000 refugees only. That particular camp will hold 100,000 or more, and a gulag of camps is being built to hold a total of perhaps up to 2 million. The fix is in.

Netanyahu and Biden will bathe in rivers of blood.

Will the world stop it from happening? I see no sign that it will. All of the reaction has been in the form of words. Words from the International Court of Justice. Words from the United Nations. Words from even the rest of us, marching in the streets, confronting Tony Blinken outside his home, and similar vocal utterances. Only the Palestinian resistance, Yemen, Hezbollah and the other resistance groups are taking real action.

When will it happen? How much time do we still have to make a difference? My guess is a few weeks at most, maybe a month. The Gaza Flotilla, which was only intended to deliver its humanitarian cargo to Egypt, to be trucked into Gaza, will probably arrive too late to be distribute its aid anywhere other than to the Palestinian population driven into the Egyptian Sinai, not the remnants in Gaza. 

Then what? A lot of hand wringing and condemnations. More words. Netanyahu will be triumphant even if he is reviled internationally. By his own people, he will be lauded for “doing what needed to be done” and to hell with the rest of the world, who are all antisemites, anyway. 

Will Biden be so reviled that he won’t run for a second term? I suspect that this has already been part of the script for weeks or months, perhaps longer. He will be tainted, so that his successor will not be. And who will that be? Hillary Clinton, of course

She and her Democrats will try to so handicap Trump, legally and otherwise, that she will win. But she underestimates the revulsion that the American public bears for her. I think she will fail again, unless Trump meets a violent end, and perhaps not even then. From there, I hesitate to predict the consequences. Or perhaps Biden won’t be tainted enough in the minds of the American public, thanks to the official Ministry of Information, AKA the obsequious corporate media. The result will be the same, in any case

Claire's Observations:  Such a scenario is desperately dark and grim, but appears, at this point, to be very real. 

Palestinians will be forced to live in Egypt, and a collective "memory wipe" will be instituted, preventing them from learning about their real history, and the fact that they indeed had a homeland, before the Nakba.  

Their hidden history will bubble and percolate through these camps, condemned as some sort of "mental derangement", for which they will be forcibly "deprogrammed". 

Al Sisi has already "caved" for a ginormous  IMF bribe, and doesn't want any trouble, so he will go along with Israel's "program" for the Palestinians without a whimper.

But what happens when Palestinians begin to relearn their own history, and what Israel did to them to establish their state, through the Balfour Declaration and beyond?!?  What happens then?!? 

 Will physical exile to Egypt be a turning point in Palestinian identity, which will shatter Israel's smug self-assurance as a country with a "raison d'etre", a reason to be?!??!?  

I don't know the answer to this; but where I an Egyptian or Israeli planner, this is a question which would keep me up at night.

Amid an ongoing onslaught against the Gaza Strip by apartheid Israel, the Palestinian national football team was a Cinderella story at this year’s AFC Asian Cup, reaching the knockout stages, eventually falling only to hosts and eventual winners hosted in Qatar. But while the challenge on the football field was hard enough, the Palestinian football team has to deal with a unique challenge that no other national squad faces: that of an unrelenting attack on it from Israel. This attack has included jailing, torturing, shooting and killing top players, bombing Palestinian infrastructure, and restricting the movement of players in and out of the country.

This has led to a growing global movement calling for Israel to be banned from international sporting competitions as part of a wider campaign to implement Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). South Africa-based group Red Card Israel, for example, told MintPress that:

The action of suspending Israel from international sport creates a symbolic support against the unlawful occupation of Israel in the Palestinian territories and shows solidarity for the Palestinian people living under the apartheid regime.”

A classified diplomatic cable obtained by The Grayzone reveals the role of a veteran CIA officer in violently overthrowing Haiti’s popular President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. 

A spectacular jailbreak in Gonaïves, Haiti in August 2002 saw a bulldozer smash through the local prison walls, allowing armed supporters of Amiot “Cubain” Métayer, a gang leader jailed weeks earlier for harassing Haitian political figures, to overrun the facility. Métayer escaped, as did 158 other prisoners. Among them were perpetrators of the April 1994 Raboteau massacre, which left dozens of Haitians dead and displaced. The victims were supporters of popular anti-imperial President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Documents released to The Grayzone under FOIA – no doubt unintentionally – reveal that the jailbreak was part of a complex US intelligence operation, aimed at undermining Aristide’s presidency. At the heart of this operation was Janice L. Elmore, a CIA operative working under cover as a Department of State “Political Officer” in the Port-au-Prince US Embassy at the time.

The breakout set in motion a violent regime change campaign, which ultimately ousted Aristide from office on February 29 2004. After being deposed and flown to South Africa, Aristide claimed to have been “kidnapped” by US forces and directly accused Washington of orchestrating the plot. His nation quickly transformed into a despotic failed state, as ruthless paramilitaries ran roughshod over the population. US Marines and later UN troops were deployed to “keep the peace,” which, in practice, meant violently cracking down on not only armed anti-coup militants but also outraged demonstrators and civilians.

Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of California…

Illegal aliens will get interest-free home mortgage loans under a new California bill.

Democrat assemblymember Joaquin Arambula (Fresno) recently introduced Assembly Bill 1840 to extend a first-time homebuyer loan program to illegal aliens.

If the bill becomes law, illegal aliens will be eligible for a new program that offers a loan worth 20% of the purchase price of the residential property. There are no monthly payments and no interest accrues on the loan. Rather, the loan is paid back when the borrower refinances or sells the property. The borrower will have to pay back the original loan plus a 20% increase in the value of the property.

“It’s that ambiguity for undocumented individuals, despite the fact that they’ve qualified under existing criteria, such as having a qualified mortgage,” California Democrat Joaquin Arambula said in an interview. “Underscores the pressing need for us to introduce legislation.”

Webmaster addition:  When was the last timer you got an interest-free mortgage with no monthly payments?!?

Israeli protesters have stormed the Beit Hanoun Crossing, also known as the Erez Crossing, with the besieged Gaza Strip and demanded the prevention of entry of humanitarian aid into the besieged enclave, which is facing a worsening famine, according to Israeli media reports, Anadolu Agency reported.

The Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation Kan reported that a number of demonstrators against the entry of aid into Gaza stormed the Erez Crossing on Thursday and even crossed into the Strip, violating Israeli army instructions, resulting in their arrests.

Last month, Israeli extremists obstructed the delivery of humanitarian aid heading to Gaza at the Beit Hanoun and Kerem Shalom Crossings on several occasions, despite the two places being declared a closed military zone by the Israeli army.

In a conversation in 2020 with Princeton Professor Emeritus, Richard Falk, he told me that historically, colonised nations that have won the legitimacy war have always won their freedom.

Palestine is unlikely to be the exception. The Gaza war, however, is confronting the world with an unprecedented challenge, specifically to governments’ relationship with international law, their obligations to international institutions, such as the United Nations, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court and others.

“The government is not legitimate unless it is carried on with the consent of the governed,” English philosopher, John Locke, said in the 17th century. This is not a mere theory, and it will always be applicable.

Consent, however, does not always reflect itself in the form of transparent and democratic elections. Legitimacy and loyalty to governments can be expressed in other ways as well. Those who do not respect this maxim could easily find themselves embroiled in political upheavals and violent rebellions resulting from popular dissent.

The far-left city of San Francisco will soon be voting on measures that could reverse liberal policies when it comes to crime, drug use, and homelessness, in what would mark a stunning rebuke of progressive policies in the Democratic stronghold.

As reported by Fox News, when Californians go to vote on Tuesday in the “Super Tuesday” primaries, San Francisco residents will be able to vote on several ballot measures including Proposition F and Proposition E.

Proposition F would mandate drug-test screening for all welfare recipients, and any drug addicts who are caught would have to undergo treatment if they want to continue receiving handouts. Proposition E would provide stronger surveillance tools to law enforcement while also reducing oversight on the police. Among other things, Proposition F would “loosen restrictions on car chases” and “ease reporting requirements in use-of-force cases and end a requirement that the Board of Supervisors approve the purchase of technology such as drones,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
