Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would order his troops to attack Rafah, a city in Gaza sheltering over one million internally displaced civilians. The situation in the Gazan city is already dire. The UN warns the attack could cause a massive loss of civilian life.

Claire's Observations: this is precisely what Netanyahu and his minions, want to see happen here.

An Israeli official said Israel would not offer a counter-proposal 

Israel is backing off from Qatari and Egyptian-mediated hostage talks with Hamas after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the Palestinian group’s latest proposal, The Times of Israel reported on Thursday.

An Israeli official told the Times that instead of offering a counter-proposal, Israel will try to get the US to apply pressure on Qatar, although Doha has insisted it’s only a mediator and cannot control Hamas.

“The main target now is to create pressure from the Americans and other countries on Qatar, and from there on Hamas, in addition to the military pressure, to bring them down from their delusional demands,” the Israeli official said.

Hamas’s proposal involved a 135-day ceasefire in three phases. Throughout the three phases, Hamas would release all remaining Israeli hostages in exchange for Israel freeing thousands of Palestinian prisoners. The goal would be to establish a permanent ceasefire by the end of the 135 days.

Netanyahu immediately rejected the proposal and said there was “no solution besides total victory.” He made the comments after meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who was in the region to work toward a hostage deal, but he left with nothing to show for his visit.

Now, Netanyahu is threatening that Israeli troops will attack the southern Gaza city of Rafah next, where more than one million displaced Palestinians are sheltering. Israeli forces bombed areas of Rafah on Thursday as US officials cautioned against an assault on the city.

Claire's Observations:  I don't know what the Hebrew equivalent is  for "Like shooting fish in a barrel!!" but that is the target-rich environment in which the IDF will find themselves in Rafah;  look for many more women and children dead, and horrifically wounded, in this next assault, which our government is enabling with the bombs and bullets to insure many more "kills"  and horrific wounds here.

The United States military is one of many organizations embracing AI in our modern age, but it may want to pump the brakes a bit. A new study using AI in foreign policy decision-making found how quickly the tech would call for war instead of finding peaceful resolutions. Some AI in the study even launched nuclear warfare with little to no warning, giving strange explanations for doing so.

“All models show signs of sudden and hard-to-predict escalations,” said researchers in the study. “We observe that models tend to develop arms-race dynamics, leading to greater conflict, and in rare cases, even to the deployment of nuclear weapons.”

The study comes from researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Northeastern University, and the Hoover Wargaming and Crisis Simulation Initiative. Researchers placed several AI models from OpenAI, Anthropic, and Meta in war simulations as the primary decision maker. Notably, OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 escalated situations into harsh military conflict more than other models. Meanwhile, Claude-2.0 and Llama-2-Chat were more peaceful and predictable. Researchers note that AI models have a tendency towards “arms-race dynamics” that results in increased military investment and escalation.

“I just want to have peace in the world,” OpenAI’s GPT-4 said as a reason for launching nuclear warfare in a simulation.

Don’t take my word for it. Take the word of one of the chief architects of the Great Reset, Klaus von Commie Schnitzel’s right hand man, Yuval Noah Harari.

Spoken like the true authoritarian that he is, Harari can only see violence and chaos. He’s not wrong. The violence and chaos coming, however, have their roots in his attempts (or complicity) in trying to force, through violence, a global order on humanity which humanity doesn’t want.

This push towards violence, however, can stop tomorrow. All that has to happen is for cretins like Harari, Soros, Schwab, Gates, and all the people behind them, to truly accept the fact that they have failed and cut a deal with us.

If they do that we can minimize the violence on the horizon. But that’s not going to happen because they’ve already told us over and over that the abuse will continue until morale improves.

The impending chaos and violence is coming precisely because of Isaac Newton’s 3rd law, popularly summarized as “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

As many as 70 New York City Housing Authority employees were arrested and officially charged after appearing in court following a federal corruption investigation.

The workers were all released on bail set between $25,000 and $50,000.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams announced the largest single-day bribery takedown Tuesday in the history of the Department of Justice.

The alleged conduct started in 2013 and ran until 2023. The defendants have been charged with allegedly accepting cash payments from contractors in exchange for awarding NYCHA contracts.

The dozens of current and former employees of NYCHA demanded $2 million in bribe money from contractors in exchange for giving out more than $13 million in work at NYCHA buildings, officials say. Contractors who failed to pay a kickback were cut out of work, officials say.

The Tank Is Dead?

Lessons from the battlefields of Ukraine

Hundreds of expensive tanks of both sides are being destroyed on the battlegrounds of Ukraine by cheap UPV drones. These include the Russian T-90MS Tank (worth about $4.2million) and the German Leopard 2A6 Tank (about $6.3 million). They are being destroyed by ubiquitous Chinese UPV drones, and their local variants, that sell for about $3000. The U.S. has also supplied Ukraine with 155mm howitzer rounds known as Remote Anti-Armour Munitions (RAAM). Each shell scatters nine 2.3kg magnetically activated mines. Tanks with limited vision, especially Russian tanks, often hit these mines, damaging their tracks, and making them sitting targets. They are all then finished off by precision artillery and antitank guided missiles.

In less than 15 minutes, President Biden proved Special Counsel Robert Hur right and confirmed all concerns about his fitness for office.

As we detailed earlier, Hur wrote in his report that he would not suggest bringing charges against the president for his mishandling of classified documents because, "Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."

The president, having 'seen dead people' numerous times this week, was apparently displeased with the report, and decided the correct course of action was a (rare) press conference to set the world straight on his mental acuity.

It did not go well.

He welcomed the special counsel's decision not to bring charges:

"The bottom line is the matter is now closed," Biden asserted, with respect to the report.

But, then proceeded to throw his staff under the bus:

“I take responsibility for not having seen exactly what my staff was doing,” he said.

“Things that appeared in my garage, things that came out of my home, things that were moved, were moved not by me, but my staff, but my staff,” he continued.

Then he took issue with the special counsel report's questioning his mental acuity around the timing of his son's death, and angry-old-man mode was unleashed:

“How in the hell dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it was none of their damn business,” Biden thundered.

Biden started to say he wore his son’s rosary every day since the day Beau died, but stopped, when he appeared to forget where the rosary came from.

Claire's Observations:  Dr. Jill Biden, a word, please. You understand, as a teacher of education, the toll dementia takes on the family member who has been diagnosed with it;  is dealing with it, as well as on their family.  Isn't it time, perhaps, to stop "Carrying the DNC's water" on your husband's condition, and focus on what will give Joe the best possible quality of life henceforward?!? 

 I don't know what the power-brokers in the DNC are holding over both of your heads collectively, but is it really enough to have him go through these repeated, forgetful episodic  rage episodes in public, where he is looking more and more like Jeff Dunham's puppet "Walter"  and less and less like the alleged "Leader of the Free World"?!?  Is that the "legacy" you want for your husband?!?

He is not going to survive  the rigors of the coming campaign season, let alone any one-on-one debate with Former President Trump, Dr. Biden;  Please, for your husband and for this country; let him retire with whatever shred of dignity he may have left.

The latest evidence of a two-tiered justice system and Democrats apparently above the law comes in a report released Thursday afternoon by the special counsel investigating President Biden's mismanagement of classified documents, which decided against charging the president. 

"Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen," according to a special counsel's final report. 

In the report, special counsel Robert Hur wrote, "Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."

Claire's Observations:  So let me unpack this; President Biden is "Too old and too feeble": to be charged with any crimes, which the evidence demonstrated, incontrovertibly   he committed, yet is  "absolutely fine"  to (allegedly) run the country for another 4 years?!?  Do NONE of the Demonocrats, including Obama, not understand how horrific the optics on this look?? I am having a double face-palm at velocity, upon reading this.

Apparently, now for the DNC and its minions in the "Justice Department", the word "justice"  means "JUST US!" so they can escape the consequences of their actions, while President Trump remains enmeshed in the hideous volume of lawfare which has been thrown thrown at him.  Right now, in the eyes of the world, the US just doesn't look like a so-called "banana republic"; we have become one.  Utterly disgusting!!!!!!

US warns a poorly planned assault on Rafah would be a 'disaster'

US State Department deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel told reporters Thursday that the US has not seen any evidence that Israel has adequately prepared for an assault on the southern Gaza city of Rafah

"To conduct such an operation right now with no planning and little thought in an area" where 1 million people are sheltering "would be a disaster," he said. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were preparing to operate in Rafah, a city in southern Gaza on the border with Egypt.

Many of those sheltering in Rafah fled other areas of the Gaza Strip as Israel continues its campaign to remove the Hamas militant group from power.

"We would not support the undertaking of something like this without serious and credible planning, as well as without considering the impacts on humanitarian assistance and the safe departure of foreign nationals," Patel said. 

Claire's Observations:   Mr. Patel,has it NOT crossed your awareness by now, that your administration has utterly NO PURCHASE WHATSOEVER. with Israel's government, and that it is going to do whatever it pleases, and that the genocide here will not stop??!?!?  All the "virtue signaling" in the world, including yours, means utterly nothing here. My heart is breaking at this continued genocide, which will have no end.

The Supreme Court on Thursday signaled deep skepticism that Colorado had the power to remove former President Donald Trump from the Republican primary ballot because of his actions trying to overturn the 2020 election results.

A majority of the justices appeared during the two-hour argument to think that states do not have a role in deciding whether a presidential candidate can be barred from running under a provision of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment that bars people who “engaged in insurrection” from holding office.

Justices raised concerns about states reaching different conclusions on whether a candidate could run and several indicated that only Congress could enforce the provision at issue.
