"The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal, object of my solicitude. The tyranny of the legislature is really the danger most to be feared, and will continue to be so for many years to come. The tyranny of the executive power will come in its turn, but at a more distant period." -- Thomas Jefferson, Democracy in America

An Israeli raid on Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City killed Mohammad Al-Sayyed Abu Skheil and Tareq Abu Skheil, reporters for the local Al-Quds Voice Radio.

Two more journalists were killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip, taking the death toll to 140 since October 7, Gaza’s government media office said on Wednesday.

Mohammad Al-Sayyed Abu Skheil and Tareq Abu Skheil, reporters for the local Al-Quds Voice Radio, were killed by an Israeli raid on Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, the media office said in a statement.

The Israeli army withdrew from the hospital early Monday after a 14-day raid, leaving behind dozens of people dead and a massive trail of destruction, according to an earlier statement by the media office.

An Israeli court has refused to release a female Palestinian journalist whose prematurely born baby is solely reliant on her mother’s breast milk for nutrition, her family told Middle East Eye.

Rula Hassanein, 29, was detained on 19 March when several Israeli troops raided her home south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

She was accused of incitement on social media, a charge that has frequently been filed against Palestinians since war broke out in Gaza on 7 October.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office — which took over the investigation because a family member of the homeowner is a part-time Collinsville police employee, the station said — determined that the homeowner asked Gagen leave the residence's front porch, but Gagen refused.

The homeowner feared for his safety and got a gun from inside the home while making "numerous" requests for Gagen to leave, KDSK noted.

The homeowner also told Gagen to not enter the home, but Gagen opened the storm door and said the homeowner would have to shoot him, the station reported, citing the sheriff's office.

With that, the homeowner fired one shot, KDSK said, adding that it struck Gagen in the chest.

On March 26, the day the bridge was struck, Logan took to X to expose what she says is clearly a “‘strategic attack’ on US critical infrastructure — most likely cyber.”

“As soon as it came down, the authorities were claiming there was no evidence of any kind of wrongdoing,” says Pat.

“Yes, which was odd because they hadn't had time to investigate, so for the authorities to make a definitive statement about anything was unusual, especially when you look at the nature of what happened,” says Logan.

After talking to many people, including some who “had worked in Baltimore for 30 years,” some who “worked in maritime attacks,” and others who “are still on active duty in the intelligence community,” Lara came away with a narrative about the bridge collapse that didn’t at all match the official statement given by authorities.

Israel potentially breached two international legal conventions three times in total on Monday 1 April. In any other circumstance – like the US-led first assault on Iraq – these crimes would prompt Western governments to at least retaliate, and at worst invade the perpetrating country. Yet so far, leaders and some of the corporate media have whitewashed Israel’s war crimes amid its ongoing genocide in Gaza.

Ben Shapiro accused Chef Jose Andres of "blood libel" on Wednesday for claiming that World Central Kitchen aid workers were "targeted deliberately" by Israel while coordinating their location with the IDF. 

The IDF killed WCK's crew with three separate strikes while "traveling in a deconflicted zone in two armored cars branded with the WCK logo and a soft skin vehicle" and sent a missile directly through the WCK logo on the top of one of their SUVs.

We might sound like a broken record, talking about the border crisis. But the truth is, the situation is getting worse every day. And it stands to fundamentally change the United States, for the worse.

Biden has done shockingly little about the millions of illegals entering the country—despite what he’s said to the media.

The border has not been shut down. And migrants continue to find new ways of infiltrating the country. Democrats are bending over backward to accommodate invaders. Now, we are learning that migrants are using schools to elude authorities. This will put many children in harm’s way.

From Breitbart:
A middle school in New Mexico was placed on lockdown last week after migrants were discovered to be hiding inside.

The incident happened at Santa Teresa Middle School near the U.S. Southern border with Mexico and is not the first time migrants were discovered hiding there…

Joe Biden secured the support of swing states in 2020—by promising to “build back better.” To this day, Biden continues to claim America’s economy is “strong.” He has claimed America is better off than any other nation in the world. But that sentiment is not shared by most Americans, based on what the polls are saying.

President Biden seems to be prioritizing globalists and the radical wing of his base.

The people who seem last on his list are hard working Americans in swing states. Now, a critical swing state is giving Biden some very bad news. They appear to be turning on him. And this one top issue could be the nail in his proverbial coffin.

From Breitbart:
Former President Donald Trump has the edge on President Joe Biden in the critical swing state of Michigan, according to a Spry Strategies poll, continuing a trend in the Wolverine State that has persisted for months.

The poll, released Tuesday night, also finds that most voters in the state back mass deportation of illegal aliens.

Democrats have been fighting to stop Florida from becoming more red. Republican Gov. DeSantis continues to defy them, scoring major conservative wins for the state. He has personal gone to war with the “woke.”

And it looks like he’s winning. He shut down transgenderism propaganda in schools. Not long ago, he passed a law that protected unborn life.

Planned Parenthood tried to challenge DeSantis’s law, taking to the state Supreme Court. The major liberal group was continuing a campaign is had led in many red states. But the court just issued a ruling—which will trigger another law that Democrats won’t be able to stand.

From Daily Wire:
The Florida Supreme Court on Monday found that the Sunshine State’s constitution’s privacy protections do not extend to abortion, which is the intentional killing of a live human in a woman’s womb.

The ruling triggers a pro-life law, called the Heartbeat Protection Act, to go into effect as of May 1. The Florida law bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy with exceptions for the life of the mother, rape, incest, and rare fatal fetal abnormalities…

Most Americans remember the 2020 Election—where last-minute rule changes and “irregularities” threw the results into question. Many state election officials allowed strange changes that led some to think the election was undermined.

Some states hurried in the last few years to correct those mistakes. States like Georgia passed sweeping election integrity laws—which outraged Democrat to no end.

Now, a state that might be important in the next election just put two issues on the ballots. Voters were going to decide the fate of their November elections. And citizens just scored major wins for election integrity—in massive losses for Democrats.

Anyone who tells you that the Israeli military is a well-trained, professional outfit must have been living in a cave with no access to news during the last six months. The furor accompanying the murder of 7 World Center Kitchen (aka WCK) workers is a bit weird because much of the reaction out of the U.S. and Europe is acting as if this is an aberration. Just a reminder that the deaths of Palestinian civilians don’t count as much as Westerners carrying a Polish, Australian and British passport.

Netanyahu may be a thug but he ain’t stupid. He realized right away that blasting three vehicles belonging to WCK, which was founded by world famous chef Jose Andres, was a PR disaster. (Side note — Jose Andres and I were members of the same golf club in Washington, DC when I lived there and I ran into him in the locker room and on the course.)

The Governments of Australia, the United Kingdom and Poland have voiced their disapproval. Remains to be seen if they are going to do any more than bitch. Meanwhile, Israel continues to slaughter. This article is more of a video presentation, but the clips are short.

Thanks to an Israeli drone operator and his idiot commander, we may have reached a tipping point in Israel’s attempt to exterminate the Palestinians. Countries previously mum on the wanton killing of Palestinian civilians are now voicing outrage over a senseless, deliberate killing — e.g. Australia, the United Kingdom and even that soy boy from Canada, Trudeau.

According to various media reports, the convoy of three World Central Kitchen (WCK) workers was hit by an Israeli drone operator. Let’s think about that for a minute. A drone operator in Israel is not sitting at home alone in his mother’s basement. He (or she) is at a base, in a room, and sitting with other drone operators. There are senior officers walking around that room. Not just one, but several.

When the drone feed identifies a target the images are displayed on large TV monitors mounted at the front of the room. The decision to follow and attack this convoy was ordered by officers. This was not just the decision of one rogue drone operator. That operator had to request permission to “engage” the target. There was a chain of command in place giving orders to follow and FIRE!! I anticipate that Israel’s Defense Minister will try to hang this on the drone operator and exonerate those who were giving him or her orders. I’ll be overjoyed to be proven wrong on this point, but based on history of such incidents in Israel and other militaries around the world the First Law of Plumbing kicks in — i.e., All Shit Runs Downhill aka ASRD!

As I and many others have pointed out, the faux mea culpa of Israel rings quite hollow because this kind of criminal behavior has been a Standard Operating Procedure of Israel since the start of hostilities on October 7. The following video is quite good. Looks like some key Brits are now pissed off enough that they will pressure the Rishi Sunak’s Government to cut off aid to Israel.

UK Defense Secretary Grant Shapps has said that the world has moved from the post-war to the pre-war era, urging NATO allies to think about the alliance's future.

"Today we must give urgent thought once again to the Alliance’s future. We have moved from a post-war to a pre-war world," he said in a column published by The Telegraph newspaper.

Shapps listed measures to protect democracy and the alliance, including redoubling efforts to support Ukraine, increasing defense spending by NATO members and strengthening the Euro-Atlantic defense sector. The situation where some allies are unable to spend 2% of GDP on defense can no longer continue because NATO "can’t afford to play Russian roulette with our future."

Among other things, the defense secretary said that the plot of George Orwell's famous dystopian novel "1984" took place in a world without NATO, but today is an even more dangerous time.

Statements of French President Emmanuel Macron about a possible sending of French troops to Ukraine are unacceptable, especially in times of the heated military and political situation in Europe, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko has said in an interview with Sputnik.

"The Russian Foreign Ministry has repeatedly commented on recent remarks by the French president about a possible sending of military personnel of the alliance's member states to the hostilities zone. Again, these ideas have been immediately disavowed by the NATO headquarters in Brussels, Washington and the majority of other capitals of the bloc's states. Nevertheless, these statements show the readiness to follow the path of escalation at a time when the West itself is suffering a strategic defeat 'on the ground.' Such 'claims,' no matter what foreign or domestic political goals they pursue, are unacceptable for responsible politicians, especially in times of the already heated military and political situation in Europe," Grushko has said.

A Corrupt Orange County judge pushed forward a case where an innocent man defended himself with a bull horn from a gang banger with brass knuckles.  The innocent man is being charged for defending himself. 

Kim Sorgente attended a pro-Trump rally on December 6, 2020, in Orange County.  The event ended when gang bangers attacked the crowd and one man with brass knuckles attacked Sorgente. Sorgente is now facing charges for defending himself and the government’s star witness is the gang banger with brass knuckles who is currently on the run.

This entire incident, including a video of the event, was reported previously.  At that time, Judge Michael Murray was overseeing the case.  He somehow was removed from the case.

A California bill would give employees the "right to disconnect" when they leave the office.

Assemblymember Matt Haney of San Francisco on Monday introduced Assembly Bill 2751, which would let employees ignore calls and texts from employers after work hours.

The bill mandates employers to clearly outline working hours and guarantees workers uninterrupted personal and family time outside of those hours.

The United States Army and Air Force have issued calls for retirees to return to active duty.

The Army’s recruitment challenges have been mounting in recent years. Recruiting has been hampered by COVID-19 vaccine requirements as well as an increasingly woke military atmosphere where trans soldiers are give special privileges while Christian soldiers are persecuted, bases host drag shows, and leaders with a history of anti-white statements are hired.

According to Army Times, “The Army fell about 15,000 soldiers — or 25% — short of its recruitment goal this [2022], officials confirmed Friday, despite a frantic effort to make up the widely expected gap in a year when all the military services struggled in a tight jobs market to find young people willing and fit to enlist.”
