t was hard not to witness the death of hope in Jerusalem on Tuesday night. Those who held out hope that the Israeli system would somehow resist the right, and exhibit tolerance — that hope was dashed by the Israeli election, in which the fascistic messianic right declared its grip over the Israeli Jewish psyche.
Exit polls show the explicitly-anti-Palestinian party Religious Zionism at 13 or 14 seats in the parliament, making it the third largest party. When official votes are released, the party will likely be in position to put the largest vote-getter, Benjamin Netanyahu, whose right-wing Likud Party polls at about 31 seats, back in the prime minister’s job after 18 months absence.
Tucker Carlson unloaded on Democrats and their leader Joe Biden tonight on his number-one-rated cable news show.
Joe Biden and Democrats have put in motion policies to purposely destroy America for generations to come.
Tucker Carlson: They’re vicious, they’re intolerant, and they are utterly corrupt. And above all they are incompetent. In less than two years it is not an overstatement to say they have run this country into the ground. Wrecking our economy, desecrating our military, and opening the borders of the United States to 5 million lawbreakers. The destruction they brought is so profound it’s hard to describe.
On Oct 10, we reported about five individuals in Michigan who sued Michigan’s dishonest Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and MI Director of Elections Jonathan Brater over their sudden creation of a new set of rules titled “The Appointments, Rights, and Duties of Poll Challengers and Election Workers,” only months before Michigan’s August 2, 2022, Primary Election.
Jonathan Brater and Jocelyn Benson
The lawsuit, which Attorney Ann Howard filed in the MI Court of Claims, was joined together with a similar lawsuit filed by the RNC. The suit asked for an emergency injunction to compel MI SOS Jocelyn Benson and Jonathan Brater to rescind the changes to their newly created “guidance” for poll challengers that was first implemented in the August 2022 Primary Election.
On the day of the Primary Election in Detroit, under the new guidance of MI Soros-funded SOS Jocelyn Benson and Jonathan Brater, an unknown third-party security group by the name of “ICU,” threw Braden Giacobazzi, an Independent poll challenger out of the former TCF Center (now the Huntington Place) for asking too many (legitimate) questions about ballots and the processes that he claims were not being followed.
It’s not the government’s job to probe criminals’ psyches. These are predators, monsters, feral beasts attacking civilization, with no regard for your property, bodily integrity or life. The government’s only job is to keep them away from us, not to ensure that they have fulfilling lives.
At the New York gubernatorial debate last week, feisty Republican challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin hit Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, hard on the crime wave engulfing New York. Finally, he said, “We’re halfway through the debate, she still hasn’t talked about locking up anyone committing any crimes.”
In a city where citizens are afraid to leave their homes because of crime, Hochul’s blithe response made headlines. She said: “I don’t know why that’s so important to you.”
Regardless of the issue, the title of this piece is a good rule of thumb to apply when you are reading “breaking news.” I am not talking about your conventional “car runs over pedestrian” or whatever. I am talking about reports like today’s news that there are US boots on the ground in Ukraine:
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have just made a covert change to their guidance on flu vaccines during pregnancy, replacing the term “pregnant women” with the more woke and gender-neutral term “pregnant people.”
Award-winning actress and long-time advocate of abortion rights, Anne Hathaway commented on the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Tuesday’s episode of “The View” while recounting her personal experience with abortion.
Investigative reporter and TPUSA host Drew Hernandez interrupted Barack Obama while he was speaking at a campaign rally in Arizona over her support of Katie Hobbs, who has a proven record of blatant discrimination against African-American people.
Moscow says it has firm evidence that Britain's military assisted with last weekend's large-scale drone attack on its Black Sea fleet off Crimea.
Russia said it plans to summon the British ambassador "in the near future" in order to present "evidence" the UK was behind the operation, which had threatened to collapse the UN-brokered Ukrainian grain export deal.
While Russia has on Wednesday announced it is re-entering the grain deal after receiving "guarantees" from Ukraine and Turkey, it is still pointing the finger at London for sending "specialists" to help Kiev forces launch Saturday's drone attack.
A medical board has moved to strip top cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough of his certifications in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease, claiming that he provided misleading medical information to the public about COVID-19 vaccines.
A Rikers Island Corrections officer was stabbed 15 times in the Ann M. Cross Center on Monday by an inmate named Dennis Applewhite AKA Dennis Fredricks. The suspect is currently on Riker’s Island awaiting trial on a murder charge from 2021.
In a lawsuit against the "Mule Watchers" - named after the 2022 film "2,000 Mules" which claimed evidence of systematic election fraud - a group called the League of Women Voters said the election integrity group's actions amounted to "time-tested methods of voter intimidation."
Prior to a Tuesday hearing on the matter, the mule watchers agreed to cease some activities, such as open-carrying firearms or wearing visible body armor within 250 feet of ballot boxes, the NY Times reports.
Judge Michael T. Liburdi agreed with the League, issuing a temporary restraining order which prohibits the mule watchers "and other persons in active concert or participation with" from taking photos or videos of voters, or spreading information about voters online - as well as "making false statements" about the state's statutes regarding early voting.
"It is imperative we balance the defendants’ right to engage in First Amendment-protected activity with the plaintiffs’ right to act without intimidation or harassment," Liburdi said following a long hearing in Phoenix, which included testimony from a man who said he was harassed at a ballot box. He went on to say Clean Elections founder Melody Jennings went on Steve Bannon's podcast to say they had 'caught a mule.'
Germany has become an economic satellite of America’s New Cold War with Russia, China and the rest of Eurasia. Germany and other NATO countries have been told to impose trade and investment sanctions upon themselves that will outlast today’s proxy war in Ukraine. U.S. President Biden and his State Department spokesmen have explained that Ukraine is just the opening arena in a much broader dynamic that is splitting the world into two opposing sets of economic alliances. This global fracture promises to be a ten- or twenty-year struggle to determine whether the world economy will be a unipolar U.S.-centered dollarized economy, or a multipolar, multi-currency world centered on the Eurasian heartland with mixed public/private economies.
President Biden has characterized this split as being between democracies and autocracies. The terminology is typical Orwellian double-speak. By “democracies” he means the U.S. and allied Western financial oligarchies. Their aim is to shift economic planning out of the hands of elected governments to Wall Street and other financial centers under U.S. control. U.S. diplomats use the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to demand privatization of the world’s infrastructure and dependency on U.S. technology, oil and food exports.
JUSTICE ALITO: Well, all right. I’ll try one more time. The district court found “a statistically significant and negative relationship between Asian American identity and the personal rating assigned by Harvard admissions officers.”
MR. WAXMAN [Harvard counsel]: That’s correct. And what she said is the record will not allow a full explanation of that because, if the — the — this — this — there is — there was no evidence with respect to what teachers said, what guidance counselors said, what these students wrote — wrote about. But what we can say with respect to the allegation of discrimination in this case, which was the — the — the definition of discrimination that was at issue in Bakke and Grutter and Fisher and which their expert, which their lawyer got up at opening statement and said: When we talk about discrimination in this case, we’re talking about discrimination in admissions outcomes. And here again, the district court found and the court of appeals also concluded that there was no evidence of discrimination in admissions outcomes against Asian Americans —
Beyond rushing deliveries of very costly and unproven air defense systems to Ukraine, Washington is doing next to nothing about Iran’s delivery of 3,500 drones to Russia for the war.
Russia has already fired off around 400 Iranian-made drones, mostly aimed at critical infrastructure targets in Ukraine including power plants, water pumping stations and dams. Combined with Russian cruise missiles, the drones and missiles have caused considerable damage.
Deliveries to Iran include the Shahed-129 (a Predator drone knock-off), the Mohajer-6 (built especially for the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and carrying two missiles) and loitering munition drones Arash-2 (allegedly designed to hit Tel Aviv and Haifa), Shahed-136 and Shahed-131.
The Pentagon’s new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) says the US believes Iran is not pursuing a nuclear weapon, but Biden administration officials are still threatening military action against Tehran to prevent it from acquiring one.
The NPR was released last week and reads: “Iran does not today possess a nuclear weapon and we currently believe it is not pursuing one.”
The National Defense Strategy (NDS) that was released with the Nuclear Posture Review also acknowledges that Iran has not made a decision to build a nuclear bomb. It reads: “Iran is taking actions that would improve its ability to produce a nuclear weapon should it make the decision to do so.”
Despite the Pentagon’s conclusion, President Biden’s special envoy for Iran, Robert Malley, said this week that the US would use military action as a “last resort” to prevent Iran from acquiring a bomb.
“We will use other tools, and in last resort, a military option if necessary, to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon,” Malley said.
Webmaster addition: Soooooo ... Iran isn't building a bomb, but Biden is going to threaten and sanction them anyway?
“We continue to monitor this as best we can, and we see no indications that Russia is making preparations for such use,” White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters.
Citing unnamed US officials, The New York Times reported that senior Russian officials recently discussed when and how to use a nuclear weapon in Ukraine. The report isn’t confirmed, and Kirby declined to comment on the specifics.
Responding to the report, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Western media is “deliberately pumping up the topic of the use of nuclear weapons.” He said the Times report was “very irresponsible.”
Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin and her Swedish counterpart, Ulf Kristersson, made the comments during a joint press conference in Helsinki on Tuesday.
When asked if Finland would allow nuclear weapons, Marin said she didn’t want to “close any doors” and that there should not be “any preconditions” to Finland joining NATO.
Kristersson said that Sweden and Finland will “act jointly” on the issue of nuclear weapons as the two nations have sought NATO membership together. He said the Nordic countries should “embrace” all of NATO’s capabilities.
Separately on Tuesday, Micael Byden, the commander of Sweden’s armed forces, said Stockholm shouldn’t set any preconditions before joining NATO. “To draw red lines even before we’re becoming a member only creates obstacles and frictions,” he said.
In September, a highly revealing academic paper was published exposing the details of a previously hidden operation by Zionist militias during the 1948 Nakba (or “Catastrophe”), in which chemical and biological weapons were used to poison Palestinians, intervening Arab armies, and the citizens of neighboring states with typhoid, dysentery, malaria, and other diseases.
Working by stealth, Zionist militants poured vast quantities of infectious bacteria into wells and aqueducts providing villages, towns, and cities with water, in direct violation of the 1925 Geneva Protocol, which strictly prohibits “the use of bacteriological methods of warfare.”
The local epidemics created by this man-made disaster greatly assisted the forcible conquest of Palestinian territory by armed Jewish militias with their capture made permanent, while hindering the progress of advancing Arab armies.
The Biden administration’s policy toward the Russia-Ukraine war was built on the assumption of widespread international support for a coercive response to Russia’s invasion. Even during the early weeks of the conflict, however, there were indications that Washington’s belief was faulty. Biden’s boast that the world stood united in its opposition to Russia’s “aggression” was little more than wishful thinking. Barely a week after the onset of the war, there were extensive defections from a United Nations General Assembly vote calling for the withdrawal of Russian forces. In addition to the five nay votes, there were 35 abstentions—even though the resolution did not commit U.N. members to take any substantive action.
Most of the abstentions came from Africa and Asia, and the vote proved to be a harbinger of widespread indifference to the war, combined with tenacious opposition to Washington’s drive to isolate and punish Russia. As time passed, the problem only grew worse. Aside from NATO and longstanding U.S. allies in East Asia, the global map showed almost no support for economic sanctions against Russia, much less for economic and military backing for Ukraine.
During the early months of the war, NATO did appear to be reasonably united behind Washington’s policy—with some notable exceptions, such as Hungary and Turkey. The contrast between NATO’s perspective and the position that countries elsewhere in the world adopted was glaring. Hudson Institute scholar Walter Russell Mead provided an apt summary of Washington’s lack of success in broadening the anti‐Russia coalition beyond the network of traditional U.S. allies. “The West has never been more closely aligned. It has also rarely been more alone. Allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization plus Australia and Japan are united in revulsion against Vladimir Putin’s war and are cooperating with the most sweeping sanctions since World War II. The rest of the world, not so much.”
