A far-left organization in New York City that has been at the forefront of anti-Israel protests has vowed to “shut down DC” when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrives to speak before Congress.

Netanyahu will be speaking before a joint meeting of Congress on July 24. The People’s Forum wrote in a post on X on Wednesday that the group would be shutting down Washington, DC, when Netanyahu arrives and would “issue a notice of a citizen’s arrest.”

“The people charge Benjamin Netanyahu with genocide,” the group wrote. “When the car criminal comes to Washington DC on July 24, we will SHUT DOWN DC and issue a notice of a citizen’s arrest.”

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)  requested information on Wednesday from Secretary of State Antony Blinken about a State Department-linked Ukrainian outlet that published an “enemies list” that includes politicians, media personalities, and activists who oppose aid to Ukraine.

Nancy Pelosi is having one a hell of a week. After blaming Trump for the events of January 6, 2021, for years, a video surfaced showing her saying she took “full responsibility.” In the leaked video, she claims that there should have been more police, even the National Guard, on the scene.

This video contradicts claims she and other House Democrats have been making. So, you better believe she is trying to do damage control right now.

Pelosi appeared on MSNBC to cover her butt. She completely rejected the video evidence, claiming Trump is pushing a “revisionist history.” She tried to, again, blame Trump for everything that happened. Instead, she made a few priceless gaffes and one ugly accusation.

From The Post Millennial:
In an interview with MSNBC, Pelosi did not take responsibility for the hundreds of people who were able to breach the Capitol…

“The fact is, the president of the United States– the former president, and his toadies do not want to face the facts,” Pelosi replied…

Pelosi went on to call the actions of those who stormed the Capitol “shameful,” claiming they had been carrying “Confederate flags and Nazi flags” as they entered the building…

“This president who incit– this former president who incited this insurrection would not send the National Guard for hours,” she stated.

Sounds like old Nance is stuck in 2019! While trying to dodge responsibility for the Capitol breach, she twice referred to Donald Trump as “the president.” Only afterward did she correct herself by saying the “former” president. It seems Pelosi’s brainwaves haven’t updated since 2021, when Joe Biden became president.

President Biden allegedly told someone that Hunter would have gotten a plea deal had he not been running for reelection. In reality, Hunter had been given a plea deal that appeared to show the president’s son special treatment. But a judge threw it out, as it protected him from other investigations and prosecutions.

It seems Joe Biden thinks Hunter is being put up on the chopping block over his campaign. Perhaps he thinks a plea deal would have made him look bad. But many have said that this trial was just for show, as it came soon after Trump’s conviction.

It is possible Democrats are making a big deal about Hunter’s conviction to downplay the egregiousness of Trump’s conviction. Experts condemned the New York Trump case, calling it a violation of law and justice. But with Hunter also being convicted, Biden’s campaign might try to claim, “You see? Even our side faces ‘justice.'”

The Pentagon under Biden initially said there wouldn’t be any issues with having 1,000 U.S. troops near Gaza. However, recent reports are uncovering the risks involved in this mission. This is a concerning situation for our American soldiers, who are facing constant danger. Let’s explore the true motivation behind why Biden is exposing them to these risks.

From Breitbart:
The Biden administration has publicly praised American troops who are part of the risky mission to deliver aid to Gaza via a temporary pier, but behind the scenes, sources tell Breitbart News that the troops’ safety is being endangered for a “photo-op.” …

This week, Hunter Biden was found guilty of three federal gun charges. A jury convicted him of lying to the federal government in an application to purchase a gun and for illegally owning a firearm. It has yet to be determined what his fate will be. He could face a fine or jail time.

Republicans have been sharing their opinions on the recent news, with Donald Trump referring to it as a distraction.

Elon Musk, known for advocating free speech and openly criticizing the Biden family, shared his perspective on this major development. Musk responded to Rep. Thomas Massie’s post regarding the conviction and made a significant statement about the Biden family as a whole.

From Fox Business:
Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk weighed in on the guilty verdict handed down Tuesday to Hunter Biden, son of President Biden, following his trial on federal gun charges…

“Hunter might deserve to be in jail for something, but purchasing a gun is not it,” Massie wrote. “There are millions of marijuana users who own guns in this country, and none of them should be in jail for purchasing or possessing a firearm against current laws.”

“I agree,” Musk responded. “He (and others) should be in jail for impugning the integrity of the United States by taking bribes for political favors, but not for this pseudo-crime.”

For weeks, a criminal trial forced Donald Trump off the campaign trail. He was required to attend every hearing until a Manhattan jury convicted him. While he was in New York, however, he defied expectations by reaching out to residents.

He was greeted warmly at many locations, but he shocked the liberal establishment when he held a rally right in the heart of the blue city.

According to reports, a record turnout of local New Yorkers supported the embattled Republican candidate. This has shocked and terrified Democrats, but it could present a big opportunity for Trump and the GOP. The former president might flip the script and rewrite the electoral map.

President Biden’s administration has sought to channel funds into “woke” businesses. The government attempted to pressure investment firms into supporting companies aligned with progressive ideals such as environmentalism.

On the state level, governments have favored companies that use their influence to advance liberal agendas. That included doing business with groups that discriminate against Americans’ constitutional rights.

But in one red state, they passed a bill to shut this kind of thing down. A previous governor actually vetoed this bill in 2021. The newly-elected governor, however, vowed to set this right. And this week, he signed into law a bill that will ban the state from doing business with enemies of this right.

From Breitbart:
Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry (R) signed legislation Tuesday that ends state business with financial companies that discriminate against firearm manufacturers and others in the gun industry…

“The Louisiana legislature passed the FIND Act in 2021, but it was vetoed by then-Governor John Bel Edwards. Today’s bill signing by Governor Landry demonstrates that elections have real consequences. By signing the FIND Act, Governor Landry is signaling to our industry that Louisiana is now a place where firearm industry members are welcomed with open arms.”

We are still months away from the 2024 election. This upcoming election will determine the makeup of our government for the next two to four years. Donald Trump and Joe Biden are competing for the White House, while other key elections will also shape Congress.

Currently, the House has a very narrow Republican majority, which limits what Republicans can achieve and prevents them from securing significant wins for Americans.

A special election was recently held in a swing state for an open House seat. The outcome could potentially tip the balance of the majority just enough to make the next few months interesting. It might also give us a preview of what’s to come in the upcoming election.

From Fox News:
House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., got a bit of breathing room on Tuesday night when Republican Michael Rulli won the special election to replace retired Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio.

Eight men from Tajikistan with potential ties to ISIS out of central Asia were arrested over the weekend in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, three people familiar with the matter told NBC News on Tuesday.

The suspects had been on the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force radar and were arrested by personnel with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, better known as ICE, the sources say.

All eight men crossed through the southern border into the U.S., and their criminal backgrounds checks came back clean when they crossed, say two officials familiar with the matter.

At least two of the men crossed the border in spring 2023, and one of those men used the CBP One app, which the Biden administration created to allow migrants to book appointments to claim asylum, those officials say.

As homicides and robberies continue to rise, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon has created a backlog of 15,000 unfiled criminal cases, leading to concerns that unprosecuted criminals in the zero-bail county are able to stay on the streets and keep committing new crimes without any consequences.

While LAPD did not respond to a public records request on updated crime data by the time of publication as the department adopts a new crime reporting system, a LAPD public information officer told The Center Square there were 438 gunshot victims and homicides are up 11%, robberies up 17.6%, motor vehicle theft up 5.2%, and burglaries up 2.4% year-over-year for January 1 through June 1 of 2024 compared to 2023.

“Murders in LA are increasing while falling throughout the country, robberies are up significantly. Gun violence is a huge problem in LA and not charging gun enhancements, and not prosecuting juvenile gun murderers is the wrong policy,” said Nathan Hochman, a former federal prosecutor running against Gascon in the November election, to The Center Square.

“There is now reportedly a backlog of 15,000 unfiled cases that are gathering dust because prosecuting crime is not a priority to Gascon,” Hochman continued. “This means thousands of criminals who should be prosecuted are instead on the streets committing new crimes — and we are less safe as a result.”

The health of the economy has been one of the primary determining factors in many presidential elections, and it will be the same this time around too.  Of course that is really bad news for Joe Biden, because the American people absolutely hate what is happening to the economy.  Even though the media is constantly telling us that the economy is doing just fine, the vast majority of the population is not buying into the propaganda.  Hordes of small businesses are failing, retailers are shutting down thousands of stores, and poverty is exploding all over the nation.  But inflation is the biggest reason why Americans are so dissatisfied with the economy.  According to one recent survey, it is “far and away” the biggest issue for American voters…

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has dismissed a challenge from transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, who had asked the Swiss-based court to reject a policy that would prevent her from competing in women's races at elite competitions.

In its ruling, which was obtained by USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday, the panel of arbitrators essentially determined that Thomas did not have standing to appeal the policy created by swimming's international federation, World Aquatics, because that policy does not yet apply to her. The CAS panel found that "for the time being" she is not eligible to compete in elite competitions through World Aquatics or USA Swimming.

An internal memo from the 24 Hour Fitness Center labels Black Lives Matter and Pride Symbols “freedom of expression” while banning patriotic items like the American flag, except for holidays.

In the letter obtained by Libs Of TikTok, it informs employees that the fitness company is committed to “creating a more inclusive environment” before it details what is and is not allowed.

The memo said it encourages employees to “bring their full selves to work everyday” and then lists that “team members” can wear apparel that shows their “solidarity and support” for the following movements.

  1. “Black Lives Matter/BLM words.”
  2. “‘Pride’ and or pride rainbow logo.”
  3. “Juneteenth logo, symbol or date on Juneteenth (June 19).”
  4. “[US] Flag or United States logo” on federal holidays like Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, Veterans Day, Patriots Day, etc.”

Greg Price noted several mistakes that Biden whipped through in under a minute — from debunked claims about his alleged history as a professor to the assertion that the Second Amendment was written in a time when individuals were not permitted to own cannons.

“Joe Biden in less than a minute,” Price began, adding, “Claims he was a professor at Penn, which he never was; Claims he taught a constitutional law class on the second amendment, which he never did; Says that you couldn’t own a cannon when 2A was implemented, which you could; And ends by failing miserably to say the phrase ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots.'”

Today, a federal jury in Wilmington, Delaware, found that the president’s son, Hunter Biden, violated the law when he lied about his drug use on a gun store firearms form to obtain a revolver, speed loader, and ammunition in October of 2018.

This was not a particularly close case. Evidence showed, among many other things, that Biden was texting his drug dealer the day before he bought the gun. The upshot, however, is that Hunter Biden becomes the first son of a United States president to become a felon in the history of the country. For much of the national news media, Hunter Biden’s trial and conviction is proof that the justice system is fair and impartial. Therefore, we should conclude that Donald Trump’s prosecutions are legitimate.

It’s fine to imprison the leading presidential frontrunner on a novel and untested legal theory, they say, because the current president’s son could potentially go to jail for crimes he obviously committed.

The New York Times took some heat on Tuesday for what amounted to a puff piece praising the “battle-tested” relationship between President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who was convicted earlier that day on several felony gun charges.

The article, written by reporter Katie Rogers, focused on how Hunter Biden’s guilty verdict in a Wilmington, Delaware, courtroom could “weigh on” President Biden — who already worries about his son’s future and is himself facing the stress of a presidential campaign. The elder Biden, Rogers wrote, is “growing more resigned and afraid” of what may be in store for his embattled son.

The House is scheduled to vote Wednesday on holding Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas related to President Biden's handling of classified documents. 

The Republican-led House Judiciary and Oversight committees have demanded that Garland hand over the audio recordings of the president's interview with special counsel Robert Hur as part of their impeachment inquiry. 

Mr. Biden asserted executive privilege over the recordings of Hur's interviews with the president and the ghostwriter of his book as the committees moved forward with contempt resolutions against Garland.

Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley commented on Hunter Biden’s conviction Tuesday after jurors handed down their decision, predicting that the first son’s legal problems were only just beginning.

Hunter was convicted on three felony counts in connection with the 2018 purchase of a .38-caliber revolver on Tuesday after jurors deliberated for slightly over three hours. Turley said that a criminal referral by the House of Representatives for perjury, combined with the tax case faced by President Joe Biden’s son, were still pending.

“His counsel has got to refocus on that tax case. They are going into that case now with a convicted felon,” Turley told Fox News “Faulkner Focus” host Harris Faulkner. “Now, these are very different types of claims, but there is a third front developing. Congress just referred, what I consider to be a very strong case, for a perjury investigation of Hunter Biden after his testimony before Congress.”

Americans living abroad face unique challenges. Olivier Wagner from 1040 Abroad explains what these reasons are and why some American expats want to renounce their US citizenship.

While the annual tax season can be stressful for filers, the burden is even greater for Americans overseas. About 9 million US citizens live abroad, the US Department of State estimates. Nearly a quarter of U.S. expats are "seriously considering" or "planning" to renounce US citizenship. For those looking to renounce citizenship, more than four in 10 said it was because of US tax filing requirements.
