Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) reveals she was proud to vote uncommitted in the Michigan primary on Tuesday, where she cast a protest vote against President Joe Biden Biden amid frustration over the war in Gaza.

According to Daily Mail, Tlaib posted a video on X as she walked away from a polling place. This came the same day when numerous Arab American voters followed the lead of activists. The aim was to push the uncommitted vote on the Democratic ballot as a way to deliver a message about the Israel-Hamas war and demand a ceasefire.

“I was proud today to walk in and pull a Democratic ballot and vote uncommitted. We must protect our democracy. We must make sure our government is about us, about the people,” she said in the video. “When 74% of Democrats in Michigan support a ceasefire, yet President Biden isn’t hearing us, this is a way we can use our democracy to say, listen, Listen to Michigan .. No more using our dollars to fund a genocide.

Fox News legal analyst and former deputy independent counsel Sol Wisenberg has called for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ entire office to be disqualified from the RICO case against former President Donald Trump and 17 others.

Willis is currently under fire after reports emerged that she was having an affair with Nathan Wade, one of the prosecutors who worked with her on the case. According to defense lawyers, the inappropriate affair amounted to a significant conflict. A hearing to disqualify Willis from the case ended on Friday, with Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee expected to make a final ruling in two weeks.

The newest New York Times/Sienna College poll shows President Joe Biden is down bad — and the Biden campaign is having a difficult time coping with that reality.

Released on Saturday, the poll shows:

  • Donald Trump leads Biden: The former president commands a respectable 5-point lead over Biden — 48% to 43% — with just eight months until Election Day
  • Country going the wrong way: The overwhelming majority of registered voters — 65% to 24% — believe the country is headed in the wrong direction
     
  • Biden approval: The majority of respondents — 61% — disapprove of Biden's job as president, including 47% who "strongly disapprove"; only 36% who approve
     
  • Favorability: More registered voters have a favorable opinion of Trump than Biden, 43% to 38%
     
  • Biden too old: A majority, 73%, of respondents said Biden is too old to be president, compared to just 42% who said the same of Trump
     
  • What can you do for me: Fewer than 20% of registered voters believe Biden's policies have helped them, whereas 40% said Trump's personally helped them
     
  • Economy is bad: A majority of respondents, 51%, described the economy as "poor," while another 23% described it as "only fair"

The survey, moreover, "offers an array of warning signs" for Biden that his weaknesses are splintering the Democratic coalition, according to the New York Times.

Pennsylvania State Police placed a trooper on restricted duty after he arrested the head of Philadelphia's Office of LGBT Affairs along with her husband during a traffic stop over the weekend in the city, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

A portion of Saturday's arrest of Celena Morrison and her husband Darius McLean — CEO of a transgender resource center — was caught on video.

While state police charged the couple with resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, disorderly conduct, and summary traffic citations, the paper said the office of city District Attorney Larry Krasner declined the charges, and Morrison and McLean were released from custody Saturday evening.

CNN host Michael Smerconish educated his own audience on Saturday after they overwhelmingly approved the Justice Department taking Donald Trump to trial before the 2024 election.

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear Trump's appeal that presidential immunity protects him from criminal prosecution in special counsel Jack Smith's election interference case.

The decision triggered weeping and gnashing of teeth among liberals because the court set oral arguments for the week of April 22. That means the justices will likely not issue a decision until the end of June. And with court proceedings halted until their decision, Trump's trial will not begin until late summer — at the earliest.

That timeline presents a major problem: DOJ policy specifically prohibits interfering in elections and being swayed by political winds, and rushing Trump's trial could run afoul of that long-standing policy.

As Gaza's Hunger Crisis Worsens, Emaciated Children Seen at Hospitals

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) -Two Palestinian toddlers with sunken eyes and emaciated faces, one in a yellow cardigan and the other in a stripy top, were lying side by side on a bed in a Gaza clinic, their thin, bony legs protruding from diapers that looked too big for them.

"We will face a large number of patients who suffer from this, which is malnutrition," she said.

The toddler in the yellow cardigan, Ahmed Qannan, weighed 6 kg (13.2 lb), half of his pre-war body weight, according to his aunt, Israa Kalakh, who was by his side.

War in Israel and Gaza

"His situation worsens each day. God protect us from what is coming," she told Reuters.

Nearly five months into Israel's air and ground assault on the Gaza Strip and resulting mass displacement, acute shortages of food have led to what the United Nations is describing as a nutrition crisis, part of a wider humanitarian catastrophe.

Gaza's Health Ministry said on Sunday that 15 children had died of malnutrition or dehydration at Kamal Adwan hospital in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza, the part of the enclave where the lack of food is most extreme.

"The unofficial numbers can unfortunately be expected to be higher," said World Health Organization spokesperson Christian Lindmeier.

The worsening hunger crisis has intensified criticism of Israel on the world stage, including from U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, whose country is Israel's staunchest ally. She said on Sunday that people in Gaza were starving, calling on Israel to do more to significantly increase the flow of aid.

"My daughter, my beautiful daughter, my gentle daughter has passed away," cried Abdulnabi. She later said through her tears that Mila had been suffering from calcium and potassium deficiencies, but did not specify what caused the child's death.

Dr Ahmad Salem, who works in the hospital's intensive care unit, said one of the factors in the high number of child deaths there was that new mothers were themselves malnourished.

"The mothers cannot breastfeed their children. We do not have formula milk. This has led to the deaths of children here in the intensive care unit. Also in the nursery, there are numerous deaths," he said

Claire's Observations:  Take a good, hard look at that mom, cradling her dead child; now, imagine, for one moment, that was YOUR child.

How would you feel, at the government which caused this, and the other government which enabled it, with their bombs and bullets, not letting desperately needed humanitarian aid through to children like this?!?

Right now, to much of the rest of the world, Israel and the US look like the collective backsides of braying donkeys, for conflating Israel's "self-defense" with "genocide". 

IF EVER there was a reason to peacefully protest, now is that time.   There desperately needs to be a viable cease-fire, so that we do NOT have hundreds more Palestinian children, dying in this way.  Of course, Netanyahu and his minions LOVE when Palestinian kids die this way;after all,  it saves on US-supplied bullets and bombs!!

Who remembers what got President Johnson to NOT run for a second term, when he was one of the principal cheer-leaders for the Vietnam War?!?  It was the thousands of peaceful protestors outside his window, and he knew that should he run again, these people, and this country, would turn against him in the coming elections.

This country needs a peace movement, and a peace caucus, made up of EVERYONE; men, women;  and people of faith, who believe very strongly, that genocide - ALL GENOCIDE - is morally wrong,   As long as the First Amendment exists, we need to not be afraid to lift our collective voice and get heard.

I have come back to posting on this site, because I can no longer remain silent on this, and other issues which I find challenging to me, as an American; and right now, with Israel's actions, silence.... is complicity.  I will not be complicit here.

And let me end, with a scenario which keeps me up at night.  What if Iran is savagely attacked by the US/UK/ and Israel, and Russia and China decide to come to its aid, militarily?  

Russia has weaponry to which the US isn't even coming close, as outlined by President Putin in his weekend speech to the Russian Federation.  The US doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to begin to defend Israel against that powerful a combo.  And Lord, please:  that some Adult in the room in the US is able to shake Netanyahu up enough to realize that his dreams of Eretz Israel (The "Greater" Israel) is very likely to cause the entire world to explode.  

Of course, he and Sarah have been moved to gated housing in Jerusalem with survival bunkers, where they can wait out Armageddon in comfort.  So does he really care about the rest of humanity?!?  Most probably,  not so much.

However, critics argue that the Biden administration has used executive actions to weaken border security, thereby exacerbating the immigration issue. The administration is accused of intentionally allowing an influx of illegal immigrants, with estimates suggesting that the number could surpass 8 million by October.

In a potentially groundbreaking discovery, a significant helium deposit has been unearthed in Minnesota, which could be one of the largest in the world, as reported by WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.

The drilling site, located just outside Babbitt in the northeastern region of the state, reached a depth of 2,200 feet within a month of breaking ground.

Pulsar Helium CEO, Thomas Abraham-James, described the discovery as "a dream." He told WCCO, "There was a lot of screaming, a lot of hugging and high fives. It’s nice to know the efforts all worked out and we pulled it off." The helium concentration found at the site was 12.4 percent, nearly 30 times the industry standard, and even surpassed the company's projections. "12.4% is just a dream. It’s perfect," Abraham-James stated.

New York City's subway system has witnessed a disturbing surge in violent crime since 2020, with more fatalities recorded than in the preceding 15 years, according to data from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

This alarming trend has persisted into 2024, despite increased police presence and surveillance measures aimed at curbing criminal activity.

The NYPD has documented 32 murders on subway trains and platforms since 2020, surpassing the total of 31 murders recorded between 2005 and 2019. The current year has already seen three subway murders, suggesting that the city is on course to exceed last year's total of five subway killings.

Dr. Wilde’s plaidoyer – ALL based on legal facts and international law – completely destroys the legality of Israel, of Israel’s existence. Going back by over 100 years to the Balfour Declaration of 1917, all the way to the illegal UK “handing over” of Palestine in 1947 to the United Nations.

Arthur James Balfour was a Conservative British politician, then Foreign Secretary, and formerly UK’s Prime Minister (1902-1905).

The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British Government in 1917 during WWI, announcing its support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine, then an Ottoman region with a small minority Jewish population about 11%.

The Brits claimed unrightfully – as well-illustrated by Dr. Wilde – having the “Mandate” for Palestine (1918-1948), because of the British occupation of territories previously ruled by the Ottoman Empire.

However, the Peace Treaties that brought the First World War to an end, also established the principle of self-determination that emerged after the war.  Meaning that Palestine already in 1918 had the right of self-determination without any mandate of the UK or anybody else over its newly gained sovereignty.

People died from euthanasia, the banning of HCQ and Ivermectin, and from the vaccine. The murder of medical ethics by medical authorities has institutionalized murder in the “health care” system, just has the world’s acceptance of genocide paved the way for the elimination of ethnicities.  Ethnic-targeted biowarfare research carried on by Washington is further evidence that respect for human life has departed.  The Western world has plenty of money to support Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians, the conflict in Ukraine, and the immigrant-invaders over-running their countries, but not for the health care of their citizens.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold on Monday reacted to the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to put Trump back on the Colorado ballot.

The US Supreme Court on Monday unanimously ruled Trump can stay on the Colorado primary 2024 ballot.

The Supreme Court said the states lack the power to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution against Presidential candidates.

“For the reasons given, responsibility for enforcing Section against federal officeholders and candidates rests with Congress and not the States. The judgment of the Colorado Supreme Court therefore cannot stand,” the high court’s ruling said.

In a recent development that has raised eyebrows, the sudden death of Angela Chao, CEO of Foremost Group and sister-in-law of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is reportedly being investigated as a potential criminal case.

Chao, aged 50, was discovered deceased in the early hours of February 11, after being extricated from a vehicle that had plunged into a pond on a private ranch in Johnson City, Texas, approximately 40 miles from Austin. The Blanco County Sheriff's Office, which is spearheading the investigation, has stated that the incident was not a typical accident.

Initially, the authorities appeared to consider the incident as a straightforward accident. However, in a recent letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the Sheriff's Office expressed a shift in their perspective. "Although the preliminary investigation indicated this was an unfortunate accident, the Sheriff's Office is still investigating this accident as a criminal matter until they have sufficient evidence to rule out criminal activity," the letter read.

Webmaster addition:  Of course Mitch McConnell's stepping down at about the same time is just a coincidence!!!!!!!!

British soldiers are “on the ground” in Ukraine helping Ukrainian forces fire Storm Shadow missiles, according to a leaked recording of a conversation between German military officers that was published by Russian media.

Germany confirmed the authenticity of the recording, and the British did not dispute the claim. The UK confirmed last week that it had a “small number” of troops inside Ukraine who are “supporting the armed forces of Ukraine.”

The UK first started shipping Storm Shadow missiles to Ukraine last year, which marked a significant escalation of NATO support since they have a range of 155 miles, further than any other NATO-provided missile. France has also provided Ukraine with a French variant of the Storm Shadow, known as the Scalp missile, but doesn’t have troops helping with targeting on the ground, according to the leaked recording.

In the recording, Lt. Gen. Ingo Gerhartz, the head of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe), described how the British assist Ukraine. “When it comes to mission planning, I know how the English do it, they do it completely in reachback. They also have a few people on the ground, they do that, the French don’t.”

At least 16 Palestinian children have starved to death in the Gaza Strip over the past few days due to the US-backed Israeli siege, and the UN’s child relief agency is warning that the number of child deaths will “rapidly increase” if conditions don’t immediately change.

“Last week, we warned that an explosion in child deaths was imminent if the burgeoning nutrition crisis wasn’t resolved,” said Adele Khodr, UNICEF’s director for the Middle East and North Africa. “Now, the child deaths we feared are here and are likely to rapidly increase unless the war ends and obstacles to humanitarian relief are immediately resolved.”

The latest Palestinian child reported to die of hunger was Yazan al-Kafarna, a 10-year-old with cerebral palsy who was in the al-Najjar Hospital in Rafah. Fifteen children have also died of malnutrition and dehydration at the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza.
