Mail-In Ballot Fraud Study Finds Trump ‘Almost Certainly’ Won in 2020

Sat, 02/10/2024 - 14:00

So what now? Good Americans are rotting in DC gulags for merely demonstrating for election integrity. How do we right the ship? If the Democrats got away with it in 2020, why would ’24 be any different?

Mail-In Ballot Fraud Study Finds Trump ‘Almost Certainly’ Won in 2020

A new study of mail-in ballot fraud challenges the official results of the 2020 presidential election.

By Tom Ozimek, The Epoch Times, February 9, 2024:

A new study examining the likely impact that fraudulent mail-in ballots had in the 2020 election concludes that the outcome would “almost certainly” have been different without the massive expansion of voting by mail.

The Heartland Institute study tried to gauge the probable impact that fraudulent mail-in ballots cast for both then-candidate Joe Biden and his opponent, President Donald Trump, would have had on the overall 2020 election results.

The study was based on data obtained from a Heartland/Rasmussen survey in December that revealed that roughly one in five mail-in voters admitted to potentially fraudulent actions in the presidential election.

After the researchers carried out additional analyses of the data, they concluded that mail-in ballot fraud “significantly” impacted the 2020 presidential election.

They also found that, absent the huge expansion of mail-in ballots during the pandemic, which was often done without legislative approval, President Trump would most likely have won.

“Had the 2020 election been conducted like every national election has been over the past two centuries, wherein the vast majority of voters cast ballots in-person rather than by mail, Donald Trump would have almost certainly been re-elected,” the report’s authors wrote.

‘Biggest Story of the Year’

The new study examined raw data from the December survey carried out jointly between Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports, which tried to assess the level of fraudulent voting that took place in 2020.

The December survey, which President Trump called “the biggest story of the year,” suggested that roughly 20 percent of mail-in voters engaged in at least one potentially fraudulent action in the 2020 election, such as voting in a state where they’re no longer permanent residents.

WATCH: Illegals Excited to Vote for Biden in 2024

For those of you still wondering why …..

Watch: Citizen reporter discovers that illegals are excited to vote for Biden in 2024…

By: Revolver News, February 9, 2024:

Well, it looks like Joe Biden’s controversial new voting base is gearing up to make its big mark sooner than anticipated. The idea of having to wait generations to cultivate a loyal “army” of Dem voters just flew out the window—they’re arriving with every intention of voting in the 2024 election for Biden; they’re primed and ready. This eye-opening revelation came from a citizen journalist who, after conversing with illegals, found out they’ve been led to believe (by whom, exactly?) that their (fake) asylum claims grant them the right to vote in US elections. And their candidate of choice? Joe Biden, without a doubt.

Here’s what went down:

llegal Migrants Talk About 2024 Election:

They believe they entered legally because they made a claim for asylum (fake claim) so they think they can vote.

Reporter:
“Who are you going to vote for?”

Illegal Migrant:
“Joe Biden”
“Joe Biden is helping us here”
“Of course for Biden”

If you’re still puzzled about the Dems’ stance on illegal immigration, they’ll lay it out for you: they view illegals as the most important group in the United States, and their primary goal is to make them US citizens. You’re being replaced. The Great Replacement isn’t just some fringe theory; it’s a cornerstone strategy of the Democrat Party.

And, of course, illegals can vote in US elections.

Antisemitic Poster of Skunk with Star of David Plastered Across Columbia University Demonizes Jews

Sat, 02/10/2024 - 12:29

For years my colleagues and I warned of the existential danger the Islamic threat were smeared as ‘islamophobes,’ ‘anti-muslim bigots’ and right wing extremists. We were right. And the threat is no longer just a threat. It’s real. It’s here. Why are big Jewish donors continuing to fund this poison? What’s it going to take? Pogroms? That’s already here.

And why are these universities admitting so many of these Jew-hating Muslims and leftists? One can easily determine what a student is about from their transcripts and extracurriculars.

Antisemitic poster of skunk with Star of David plastered across Columbia University Demonizes Jews

By Aneeta Bhole, NY post, Feb. 6, 2024:

An antisemitic flier depicting a skunk in the white and blue of the Israeli flag and a Star of David has surfaced on Columbia University’s campus, sparking outrage among the Jewish community.

The poster “villainizes Jewish and Israeli students on campus and fosters an increasingly hostile environment,” according to the Anti-Defamation League for New York and New Jersey, who blasted the Columbia administration for not taking action to stop it sooner on X.

The skunk depiction has been likened to Nazi propaganda posters used during World War II — which dehumanized the Jewish community and compared them to vermin.

“That skunk poster evokes classic antisemitic tropes that are instantly familiar to anyone who has seen Nazi propaganda,” the director of programming and strategy at End Jew Hatred Michelle Ahdoot told the Post.

Water Park Investigates Harassment of Female Staff at Islamic Men-Only Day

Jamberoo investigates harassment of female staff at Islamic men-only day

By Ben Langford, Illawarra Mercury News, February 7 2024;

Both the Jamberoo Action Park and Islamic group Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah (ASWJ) are investigating harassment of female staff, including vile slurs being used, at the men-only Brothers Day Out held at the water park on Monday.

The ASWJ, a national Sunni Muslim group which has representation in Wollongong, had booked out the entire park for its “strictly brothers only” event, which was attended by an estimated 800 men and boys.

On the day, the Mercury has been told female staff went home distressed at the treatment they received, after being told “you shouldn’t be here” and being subjected to intimidation and degrading treatment.

This included being called “bitch” and “slut” by a group of the park visitors, the Mercury has been told.

Park management said it had a report of “derogatory and degrading treatment” of one staff member and would investigate further if any more complaints came to light.

A source with knowledge of the situation said he knew more than one staff member was subjected to this.

Islamic Terror Group Killed 32 Hostages in Gaza, 20 More Reported Dead

Wed, 02/07/2024 - 18:09

New from The New York Times: Israeli intelligence officers have concluded that at least 32 of the remaining 136 hostages captured by Hamas and its allies on Oct. 7 have died since the start of the war, according to a confidential assessment that was reviewed by The New York Times. The families of the 32 hostages whose deaths are confirmed have been informed, according to four military officials who spoke anonymously in order to discuss a sensitive matter.

The four officials said that officers were also assessing unconfirmed intelligence that indicated that at least 20 other hostages may have also been killed.

Jerusalem was also assessing unconfirmed reports indicating that at least 20 additional captives may no longer be alive.

By JNS, February 7, 2024:

At least 32 of the remaining 136 hostages captured by Hamas during its Oct. 7 terrorist onslaught are confirmed to have died, The New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing a confidential Israel Defense Forces intelligence assessment.

Their families have been updated, according to four IDF military officials who spoke anonymously to discuss classified information.

Jerusalem was also assessing unconfirmed reports indicating that at least 20 additional captives may no longer be alive, the officials said.

The Hostages and Missing Families Forum, which represents relatives of the captives, on Tuesday evening confirmed the deaths of 31 people held in Gaza.

“According to the official data we have, there are 31 victims,” the forum said in a statement. “Before the article was released, an official message was given to all the families of the abductees by the liaison officers that there is no change in the situation assessment.”

Hamas abducted more than 240 people during its bloody rampage across the northwestern Negev, in which some 1,200 people were murdered and thousands more wounded.

One hundred five hostages, mostly women and children, were released last year as part of a ceasefire deal, which Hamas broke when it refused to hand over the last group of captives. Four more were released by Hamas before the ceasefire, while one hostage was rescued by Israeli troops.

The figure of 32—or possibly even 52— dead captives is significantly higher than previously thought and would mean that more than one-fifth of the remaining hostages have been killed. Last month, Jerusalem said Hamas was believed to be holding 28 bodies in Gaza.

The terror group has also been holding the bodies of slain IDF soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin since 2014, as well as two living Israeli civilians suffering from mental illness, Avera Mengistu, who crossed into Gaza in 2014, and Hisham al-Sayed, who entered Gaza in 2015.

WATCH: House Administration Committee Hearing on ‘American Confidence in Elections’

Wed, 02/07/2024 - 17:52

Mail-in ballots, the private takeover of elections with “Zuckerbucks,” Big Tech censorship, and Democrat meddling are the biggest ways “the American system of self-governance is under attack,” Federalist Editor-In-Chief and bestselling author Mollie Hemingway warned in her testimony to the House Administration Committee.’

Mollie Hemingway Breaks Down Everything Wrong With U.S. Elections From Mail-In Ballots To Zuckbucks To Censorship

By: Jordan Boyd, The Federalist, February 07, 2024

Mail-in ballots, the private takeover of elections with “Zuckerbucks,” Big Tech censorship, and Democrat meddling are the biggest ways “the American system of self-governance is under attack,” Federalist Editor-In-Chief and bestselling author Mollie Hemingway warned in her testimony to the House Administration Committee.

“We have allowed the private takeover of government election offices by partisan oligarchs and their armies of activists who use those offices and their authorities to tilt the election toward favored candidates,” she said.

During her opening statement on Wednesday, Hemingway diagnosed the deterioration of U.S. elections and Americans’ trust in the voting process as the result of “lengthy election seasons.”

“The situation is so absurd that we have presidential and gubernatorial debates weeks after some people have already voted,” Hemingway noted.

Mail-in voting specifically, Hemingway said, forces the crux of voting to begin months before Election Day.

“Instead of having full security and a verifiable chain of custody for ballots being issued, cast, and counted, we flooded addresses across the country with tens of millions of unsupervised mail-in ballots months ahead of elections frequently to locations from which voters, if they’re even alive, have long since moved, instead of having election administration that is rigorously nonpartisan and impartial under the law,” she explained.

Hemingway said this strategy not only applied in the 2020 presidential election but is being weaponized by Democrats in the 2024 cycle to prevent former President Donald Trump from receiving support at the polls.

“Instead of voters being able to vote for the candidate of their choice, powerful interests backed by wealthy oligarchs are working to remove the most popular candidate and the ruling party’s chief opponent from the ballot in a move reminiscent of Soviet Russia,” Hemingway said. “And if that weren’t enough, instead of the top candidates being chosen by the people being able to fully engage in a vigorous campaign heading into an election, we have one side actively attempting to throw its opponent in prison and bankrupt his family, again, reminiscent of Soviet Russia instead of a system of rule of law that gives Americans the same rights and due process.”

The Department of Justice, “other partisan actors,” and “partisan juries,” Hemingway said, play key roles in the latest election meddling scheme, but they are not alone.

“We have a press that is almost exclusively the arm of one political party and is so corrupt that it is willing to perpetrate hoax after hoax against opposition party members instead of a vibrant public square where Americans can debate issues and express their strongly held views,” Hemingway said.

Hemingway said that, in addition to the corrupt corporate media, Big Tech used its internet power to influence election outcomes.

“We have an elaborate censorship industrial complex, where the government works hand in hand with tech oligarchs to suppress and blacklist debate on all the important issues that contribute to election outcomes,” she noted. “This is something I know firsthand because our government worked with tech companies to censor me for my election reporting.”

SICK INSANE LIES: Biden Blames Trump For Their Border Invasion

Wed, 02/07/2024 - 16:19

BIDEN: “The only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”

They can say the day is night and night is day and the media will report it as fact. Once they Democrats rendered people unable to think thanks to their takeover of the education system, they think can get away with murder. And they do.

Biden isn’t running the country. He can’t find his ass with both hands. The Democrats will keep that rotting corpse installed in the White House until the eleventh hour. Then — after some ‘medical emergency’ (or death, by accident or not, they could really milk death), they’ll slide in the most sell-able choice for figurehead (Michelle Obama, even keep Kamala, doesn’t matter) thereby evading the year of vetting, debating, exposes and bad press (from the alternative voices on social) and herald the coming.. This has always been their plan.

Biden Blames Donald Trump and ‘MAGA Republicans’ for Broken Border System

By: Kristina Wong, Breitbart News, 6 Feb 2024:

President Joe Biden blamed former President Donald Trump and “MAGA Republicans” for the broken border system and his administration’s expected failure to convince Congress to pass a $118 billion bill that would allot $20 billion for border security but $60 billion for Ukraine.

“Now, all indications are this bill won’t even move forward to the Senate floor. Why? A simple reason: Donald Trump,” Biden said during a public address on Tuesday.
He claimed that Trump thinks the bill is “bad for him politically,” and, therefore, it is being opposed by Republicans in the House and Senate.

He also put all the blame on Trump for the record levels of illegal immigrants streaming through the border, not his own policies and lack of enforcement of the law.

“Every day between now and November, the American people are going to know that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends,” he said.

“It’s time for Republicans in Congress to show courage, to show spine, to make it clear to the American people that you work for them, not for anyone else. I know who I work for — I work for the American people,” he claimed.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) plans to bring the Senate border bill to the floor on Wednesday, but Republicans are poised to block it.

The bill would give the administration the ability to expel illegal immigrants, but only if an average threshold of border crossers is reached.

Muslim Jew-hater Elected New President of International Court of Justice (ICJ)

Wed, 02/07/2024 - 15:03

Nawaf Sala has a history of making antisemitic statements and will now be presiding over the blood libel made by South Africa against Israel. The fix is in. But the Jewish people should know by now. This is how it is.

Lebanese, anti-Israel judge Nawaf Salam elected new president of ICJ
The new judge has previously claimed that critics of Israel are labeled antisemites “to intimidate and discredit them.”

By: Jerusalem Post, February 7, 2024:

Lebanese Judge Nawaf Salam was elected by his peers to be the new president of the International Court of Justice, where he will be expected to serve a term of 3 years, according to a press release published by the Hague on Tuesday.

Salam had been a member of the court since February 2018 and had previously been employed as an Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Lebanon to the United Nations from 2007 until 2017.

Salam has a history of making anti-Israel statements and will now be presiding over the case launched by South Africa against Israel, in which it claims that the IDF is committing genocide in Gaza.

In 2015, the now-president wrote, “Unhappy birthday to you, 48 years of occupation.” Months later, the Jewish News Syndicate reported that he wrote “Israel must stop violence and end occupation” and “Portraying the critics of Israel’s policies as antisemites is an attempt to intimidate and discredit them, which we reject.”

The House on Tuesday rejected a bill to provide $17.6 billion in aid for Israel, sinking Congress’s latest effort to help its embattled Middle Eastern ally and throwing the fate of future foreign aid into question.

The tally was 250-180 — short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass the measure — with critics in both parties joining forces to quash it.

Democrat-Run Washington D.C. Circuit Appeals Court Rejects Trump’s Immunity Bid

Tue, 02/06/2024 - 15:52

Trump’s crime? They don’t own him and he can’t be owned which is why freedom loving Americans are unequivocal in our support. What the left (and the uniparty quislings) do not understand is we will vote for Trump even if he is San Quentin.

These indictments are Soviet-style persecution of the opposition of totalitarianism. And in no world would Trump get a fair hearing in DC or NYC.

They know. We know. They know we know. We know that they know that we know which is why they must crush us.

“We know that they are lying, they know that they are lying, they even know that we know they are lying, we also know that they know we know they are lying too, they of course know that we certainly know they know we know they are lying too as well, but they are still lying. In our country, the lie has become not just moral category, but the pillar industry of this country.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

NY SUN: The panel comprises Judges Karen Henderson, Michelle Childs, and Florence Pan. The first rider was appointed by President George H.W. Bush, the second by President Biden, and the third by President Obama. The D.C. Circuit has proved to be difficult terrain for the 45th president.

So, for that matter, has the District courtroom of Judge Tanya Chutkan. She ruled that “former Presidents enjoy no special conditions on their federal criminal liability” and that the presidency “does not confer a lifelong ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass.”  That conclusion, because it involves parsing law rather than determining fact, will be reviewed de novo, or from scratch.

The panel chose to take up the issue on an expedited basis,

Federal Appeals Court Rejects Trump’s Immunity Bid

By: Arjun Singh, Daily Caller, February 6, 2024:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled Tuesday that former President Donald Trump cannot assert immunity from prosecution in his ongoing criminal proceeding related to his comments on the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Trump, who has been indicted by Special Counsel Jack Smith on charges of alleged criminal conduct related to his seeking to overturn the results of 2020’s election, had sought to assert constitutional immunity from prosecution, arguing that it is incidental to his status as a former president. On Tuesday, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit unanimously rejected that claim.

Should Trump seek to contest the appellate court’s ruling, the next measure would be to petition the D.C. Circuit for a rehearing of the case en banc, whereby all judges of the 11-member court would review his appeal. However, Trump may also petition the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari to elevate the case to them, which, if granted, would render a final decision on his claim of immunity…..

NYC teachers will exchange notes on how to ‘get around censorship’ to teach kids about the ‘genocide in Gaza’

By Aneeta Bhole, Emily Crane, NY Post, Feb. 1, 2024:

A faction of New York City educators are hosting a virtual seminar this weekend to share resources on how to “get around censorship” and teach students about the “Israeli occupation” and “ongoing genocide in Gaza,” The Post has learned.

The virtual “curriculum share” event, which is scheduled for this Saturday, is being organized by the group NYC Educators For Palestine and is geared towards K-12 classroom teachers, various promotional materials show.

“Teachers will have the opportunity to present and share original lessons and materials they have developed on topics such as Palestinian history, the history of Israeli occupation, and the ongoing genocide in Gaza,” a description of the two-hour seminar said.

“Every teacher who attends the curriculum share will leave with a collection of lessons they can use with their students.”

At least one principal, Terri Grey, who heads the Virtual Innovators Academy — a remote public school for first-year 9th and 10th graders — has been boosting the upcoming event to her educators.

Hamas Sexually Mutilated Israeli Women, Then Booby-Trapped Their Bodies

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 19:00

Outdoing the Nazis. And just like the allied forces, it is Israel’s moral duty to eliminate these demons. Ceasefire, my ass.

Hamas sexually mutilated Israeli women, then booby-trapped their bodies

During October 7th, Hamas booby-trapped victims’ bodies in an attempt to kill anyone attending to them.

By Vered Weiss, World Israel News

Shari Mendes, an IDF reservist who helped identify female victims of the October 7th massacre, told Sky News in an interview that Hamas shot women multiple times in the faces until they were unrecognizable and mutilated their genitals.

Mendes describes the piles of bodies she confronted at the Shura camp, the hundreds piled up on top of each other.

Many of the bodies were desecrated to the point where it was difficult to identify them or prepare them properly for burial.

“The halls were lined to the ceiling with body bags, the smell was unimaginable. I can’t tell you the shock and despair that struck all of us.”

As a testament to the sexual assault that was perpetrated on the women who were killed, Shari Mendes said she saw many of the women with underwear pulled down to their knees with blood on the groin and on the fabric.

“Women were shot many times in the face… Their mouths were in grimaces, their eyes were open, their fists were clenched.”

Hamas had booby-trapped many of the bodies in an attempt to kill anyone attending to them, and workers had to be evacuated.

  Freed hostages still receiving medical, psychiatric care

“Our team saw women shot in the crotch, in the genitals. Women were shot in the breast… Our team saw this.”

In spite of forensic evidence and eyewitness testimony that there was sexual assault and mutilation, many still deny that such crimes took place on October 7th, alleging that Hamas wouldn’t have engaged in sexual violence because it is against Islamic law.

According to accounts from freed hostages, both women and men are being sexually abused in captivity.

Released hostage Chen Goldstein Almog said, “There are girls in captivity who haven’t had their periods in a long time, and maybe we should pray for that, that their bodies will protect them and they won’t get pregnant from rape.”

She continued, “We have to do everything to get them back.”

Aviva Siegal, whose husband Keith is still in captivity said, “The terrorists bring inappropriate clothes, clothes for dolls and turn the girls into their dolls.”

“Dolls on a string with which you can do whatever you want, whenever you want,” she added.

Siegal said sexual abuse was also perpetrated on male hostages, “The boys also go through abuse — what the girls go through.”

“Maybe they don’t get pregnant [but] they are also puppets on a string,” she said.

J6 Committee Admits Its Show Trials Were An Election-Year Publicity Stunt

By: Tristan Justice, The Federalist, February 01, 2024

Key members of the Jan. 6 Committee admit in a new PBS documentary that the operation was an election-year publicity stunt.

Key members of the since-disbanded Select Committee on January 6th admit in a new PBS documentary that the entire operation was an election-year publicity stunt.

On Wednesday, Frontline PBS published a new documentary, “Democracy on Trial,” chronicling the House committee’s work. Pivotal players on the partisan probe conceded in the two-and-half-hour documentary that the panel’s public performances produced for prime-time television were orchestrated as entertainment media.

“The one thing that we knew was the information that we have is compelling,” said Illinois congressman-turned CNN commentator Adam Kinzinger. “The thing we needed to do was tell that to the American people in a compelling way.”

The Jan. 6 Committee turned to former ABC News President James Goldston to produce their hearings that occurred just months before the 2022 midterms. The panel also hired another producer whose résumé included stints at Bloomberg, ABC News “Nightline,” and “Good Morning America.”

“I got a call pretty much out of the blue from the January 6th committee,” Goldson told the documentary. “They wanted a storyteller.”

“While they were brilliant lawyers,” Goldston added, “storytelling for a mass audience is not what they do.”

“To bring in a guy like this who would think outside the box really did prove to be fruitful,” Robert Draper of New York Times Magazine tells the PBS documentarians. “It was Golston who really began to envision this as in a way a kind of miniseries that there would be sort of nine episodes and that these episodes would tackle particular themes.”

The Two-State Final Solution

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 18:00

In his article listed below Elliot Abrams lucidly explains why the two-state-solution is, at best, woefully misguided or, at worst, lethally dangerous nonsense.

Before anything in the way of so-called solutions should be discussed we need to insist that the Arab Palestinians present a case that substantiates their claim to self-determination in a sovereign state. Decades of shouting that they want one is an insufficient reason to grant them one particularly in a land they never owned and over which they never ruled.

Let us start by asking them the reason for their unending hostility towards the Jewish people many centuries before Israel was reconstituted in 1948. Where are the political and legal documents that prove their claims? Is there any archaeological evidence? Are there any public buildings that housed their government? If so, when were they destroyed and by whom?

The international community should stop infantilizing these people by treating their claims as if they are legitimate. Rewarding them by granting them something to which they are not entitled because of constant terrorist attacks and blood-curdling threats sets a dreadful example of weakness and demonstrates a lack of moral clarity which will cost more blood and treasure. One enormous example of such weakness was when Yasser Arafat, the self-appointed leader of the P.L.O. and a man with a penchant for European rent-boys, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for agreeing to stop something which he should never have started in the first place.

Apart from the fact that the Arab Palestinians have no case and their claims to self-determination in a land that never belonged to them are fraudulent, the two-state-solution is exposed as being completely unviable the minute its proponents start talking about that state being demilitarized with no standing army!

If the intentions of the Arab Palestinians are benign why deny them an army? Is this denial supposed to make the Israelis feel more secure? Of what do they have to be fearful? Now, if you don’t know the answer to that then you have used the last 76 years as an opportunity catch up on some sleep and obviously know nothing about the genocidal attack of October 7th.

It is obscene to suggest that Israelis should live next to these monsters, even under different leadership, and in the land where King David ruled over 3,000 years ago.

The vaunted two-state-solution is no solution at all. The Arab Palestinians do not want a state of their own. What they want is the means to destroy the Jewish state. Having a state of their own adjacent to Israel is the easiest and surest way for them to accomplish that goal with the continued help of their Iranian masters.

Islamic supremacists know exactly what they want and they are prepared to empty the future for any nation or group that stands in their way which is why the Iran Nuclear Deal concocted by Barack Obama and currently being resurrected by Joe Biden is the very worst policy idea the Democrats have yet conceived. It assures Iran will be a nuclear power within about 5 years or less. How will the possession of apocalyptic weapons curtail the atrociously bad behavior of the Iranian ayatollahs?!! Surely nobody expects their behavior would improve.

I fear that any two-state-solution especially with the ayatollahs still in control of Iran will devolve into a one-state-solution and eventually the Final Solution giving Adolf Hitler a posthumous victory in his eternal quest of annihilating the Jewish people.

The Two-State Delusion

The Biden administration is leading a push to recognize a Palestinian state that will be a danger to the security of Israel

By: Elliott Abrams, The Tablet, February 01, 2024

Everyone knows what to do about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: Arrange the “two-state solution.” That has been a commonplace for decades, going back to the Oslo Accords, all the international conferences, the “Roadmap,” and the efforts by a series of American presidents and their staffs of ardent peace processors.

In the West, the call for a “two-state solution” is mostly a magical incantation these days. Diplomats and politicians want the Gaza war to stop. They want a way out that seems fair and just to voters and makes for good speeches. But they are not even beginning to grapple with the issues that negotiating a “two-state solution” raises, and they are not seriously asking what kind of state “Palestine” would be. Instead they simply imagine a peaceful, well-ordered place called “Palestine” and assure everyone that it is just around the corner. By doing so they avoid asking the most important question: Would not an autocratic, revanchist Palestinian state be a threat to peace?

No matter: The belief in the “two-state solution” is as fervent today as ever. The German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said it’s the “only solution” and Britain’s defense minister chimed in that “I don’t think we get to a solution unless we have a two-state solution.” Not to be outdone, U.N. Secretary General Guterres said, “The refusal to accept the two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians, and the denial of the right to statehood for the Palestinian people, are unacceptable.” The EU’s Foreign Minister Josep Borrell said recently, “I don’t think we should talk about the Middle East peace process anymore. We should start talking specifically about the two-state-solution implementation process.” What if Israel does not agree, and views a Palestinian state as an unacceptable security threat? Borrell’s answer was that “One thing is clear—Israel cannot have the veto right to the self-determination of the Palestinian people. The United Nations recognizes and has recognized many times the self-determination right of the Palestinian people. Nobody can veto it.”

In the United States, 49 Senate Democrats (out of 51) just joined to support a resolution that, according to Sen. Brian Schatz, is “a message to the world that the only path forward is a two-state solution.” Biden administration officials have been a bit more circumspect in public. At the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos in January, Secretary of State Blinken told his interviewer, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, that regional integration “has to include a pathway to a Palestinian state.” National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan called for “a two-state solution with Israel’s security guaranteed.” And President Biden meandered around an important security point: “there are a number of types of two-state solutions. There’s a number of countries that are members of the U.N. that … don’t have their own military; a number of states that have limitations, and so I think there’s ways in which this can work.”

The Biden administration, then, joins all enlightened opinion in saying there must be a Palestinian state, but adds that it must not have an army. No other precondition seems to exist for the creation of that state once the Palestinian Authority has been “revamped” or “revitalized” so that it becomes “effective.” And most recently, Blinken has asked his staff for policy options that include formal recognition of a Palestinian state as soon as the war in Gaza ends. This would be a massive change in U.S. policy, which for decades has insisted that a Palestinian state can only emerge from direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. But the pressure is growing, it seems, to skip niceties like negotiations and move quickly to implement the “two-state solution.”

There are three things wrong with this picture. First, none of the current proposals even acknowledges, much less overcomes, the obstacles that have always prevented the “two-state solution.” Second, the “effective governance” reforms fall very far short of creating a decent state in which Palestinians can live freely. And most important, any imaginable Palestinian state will be a dangerous threat to Israel.

Start with the issues—beyond violence and terror—that negotiations to create a Palestinian state must resolve and are being ignored. Take borders, for instance: Where are they? In the round of negotiations in 2008, after the 2007 Annapolis Conference, Palestinian representatives demanded that Israel get out of the West Bank towns of Ariel and Ma’ale Adumim—populations 20,000 and 38,000, respectively. Are those still Palestinian demands? How many of the Israelis living in the West Bank must leave? Must the new state of Palestine must be judenrein?

But those are the simpler border issues; the tough one is Jerusalem. Will East Jerusalem be the capital of a Palestinian state? If so, what does that mean? The old Arab Quarter only, or the Christian and Armenian quarters too? Do their residents have any say in this? Is it actually being proposed that the Western Wall would be the Israeli border, and if you stand there and look up you are looking at another country? Or that David’s Citadel and the Tower of David would be in Palestine? A look at the map of Jerusalem shows how impractical is the division of Jerusalem again if the city is to thrive, but what about politics? Which Israeli politicians of the left or center are going to be in favor of dividing Jerusalem again, going back to the pre-1967 days—and doing it in the aftermath of the Hamas massacres of Oct. 7?

The Arab Peace Initiative of 2002 is sometimes suggested as the basis for negotiations, but it demands “Full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied since 1967, including the Syrian Golan Heights, to the June 4, 1967 lines as well as the remaining occupied Lebanese territories in the south of Lebanon.” More border troubles! Especially since the U.S. has recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which includes areas claimed by the Lebanese.

And what about the issue of “refugees?” UNRWA, the U.N.’s discredited but powerful Palestinian refugee agency, says there are 5.9 million “Palestinian refugees,” using its definition that includes generation after generation no matter what citizenship they have. Will there be a “right of return?” In the negotiations in 2008, the private Palestinian demand was much smaller—in the range of 10,000 or 15,000. But Israeli negotiators rejected those numbers, taking a position of principle against the “right of return” but also noting the impossible problem of deciding who would qualify for it. Will Palestinian politicians agree to abandon it once and for all? If not, how will negotiations succeed?

Second, suppose negotiations do succeed and the borders of a Palestinian state are drawn. Does anyone care what is going on inside those borders? In January Secretary Blinken said, “It’s I think very important for the Palestinian people that they have governance that can be effective. …” They need a Palestinian Authority, he said, that can “actually deliver what the Palestinian people want and need. …”

There are some words missing in all the calls for a Palestinian state—words like democracy, human rights, and liberty.

Gay Palestinian Beheaded in West Bank

Why isn’t Abu Marhia the face (or should I say head) of Queers for Palestine?

Gay Palestinian Ahmad Abu Marhia beheaded in West Bank

By: BBC, 7 October 2022:

It is not clear how Ahmad Abu Marhia ended up in his home city of Hebron

Palestinian police have arrested a suspect in the killing of a 25-year-old man after his body was found decapitated in the occupied West Bank.

LGBTQ groups in Israel, where Ahmad Abu Marhia was seeking asylum, say he had received threats because he was gay.

Video of the murder scene in Hebron has spread widely on social media raising speculation about the motive, but police say nothing is confirmed.

It is unclear for now how Mr Abu Marhia ended up in the city.

LGBTQ groups say he had spent two years in Israel waiting on an asylum claim to flee abroad after receiving death threats from within his community.

Israeli media quote friends of the victim as saying he was kidnapped to the West Bank.

His family, however, said he regularly visited Hebron to see them and to work. They described the claims about the motive as rumour.

Dearborn: America’s Jihad Capital

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 16:00

Shockingly and finally, in the Wall Street Journal.

We were right. About everything.

Welcome to Dearborn, America’s Jihad Capital

By: Steven Stalinksy, Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2023:

Thousands march in support of Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran. Protesters, many with kaffiyehs covering their faces, shout “Intifada, intifada,” “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” and “America is a terrorist state.” Local imams give fiery antisemitic sermons. This isn’t the Middle East. It’s the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Mich.

Almost immediately after Oct. 7, and long before Israel began its ground offensive in Gaza, people were celebrating the horrific events of that day in pro-Hamas rallies and marches throughout Dearborn. A local headline describing an Oct. 10 event at the Ford Performing Arts Center read “Michigan rally cheers Hamas attack.” Imam Imran Salha of Dearborn’s Islamic Center of Detroit

told the crowd that Israel’s past actions have put “fire in our hearts that will burn that state”—Israel— “until its demise.” In May 2023, Mr. Salha had urged his congregation to say “amen” in agreement with his prayer that Allah “eradicate from existence” the “sick, disgusting Zionist regime.” In October 2022, according to the Washington Free Beacon, his organization received $150,000 in funding from the Homeland Security Department’s nonprofit security grants program.

At another rally, held Oct. 14 in front of the Henry Ford Centennial Library, Imam Usama Abdulghani also didn’t hide his support for Hamas’s terrorist actions. The American-born, Iranian-educated Shiite Islamic scholar called Oct. 7 “one of the days of God” and a “miracle come true.” He described the attackers as “ honorable.” He said they were “ lions” defending “the entire nation of Muhammad the messenger.”

Local enthusiasm for jihad against Israel and the West extends beyond celebration of Hamas. The Islamic Center of America, a leading Dear-born mosque, held a memorial service on Dec. 30 for a Hezbollah operative killed in an Israeli airstrike. The Hadi Institute, which runs an Islamic Montessori school and bills itself as a youth community center, held a “Commemoration of the Martyrs” on Jan. 5. This event honored Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, leader of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq. Both men were on the U.S. list of designated terrorists when they were killed in a U.S. airstrike on Jan. 3, 2020. The commemoration included poetry and praise, along with claims about ISIS being operated by both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Mossad. Imam Abdulghani used his remarks to express his “warmest congratulations” to “our very special leader, Imam Khamenei”—essentially declaring allegiance to the Iranian ayatollah who regularly calls for the destruction of the U.S.

Support for terrorism in southern Michigan has long been a concern for U.S. counterterrorism officials. A 2001 Michigan State Police assessment submitted to the Justice Department after 9/11 called Dearborn “a major financial support center” and a “recruiting area and potential support base” for international terror groups, including possible sleeper cells. The assessment noted that most of the 28 State Department- identified terror groups were represented in Michigan. Many current or onetime Dearborn residents have been convicted of terror-related crimes in recent years.

Ahmad Musa Jibril is perhaps the most influential English-speaking jihadi sheikh. From his home in Dear-born he promotes holy war to his tens of thousands of followers on Twitter and Telegram. On Oct. 7, the day Hamas slaughtered 1,200 Israelis and took almost 200 hostage, a Twitter account bearing his name retweeted a post that said, “The hearts haven’t been overjoyed like this in so long.” This account also posted a tweet imploring Allah to “purify the land from the aggression of the apes, swines, and hypocrites.” He later recorded a video calling on Muslims in the West to start normalizing the term “jihad” by using it frequently “on your social media, and in the mosques.” He has called President Biden a “senile pharaoh.”

Dearborn’s radical politics are complicating Mr. Biden’s path to reelection. Michigan is a must-win state for Democrats, and the president’s campaign strategists are clearly worried that virulent anti-Israel and anti-American sentiment could hurt him in November. The AP reported Jan. 26 that local leaders gave Biden campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez the cold shoulder during a recent visit to the Detroit area. “Little bit of advice—if you’re planning on sending campaign officials to convince the Arab-American community on why they should vote for your candidate, don’t do it on the same day you announce selling fighter jets to the tyrants murdering our family members,” tweeted Abdullah H. Hammoud, Dearborn’s Democratic mayor.

Open support for Hamas is spreading. Since Oct. 7, similar protests have occurred in major American cities featuring pro-jihadist imagery, chants and slogans. Rallies are now also expressing support for the Iran-backed Houthis, who are lobbing missiles at Israel and trying to sink commercial vessels in the Red Sea.

What’s happening in Dearborn isn’t simply a political problem for Democrats. It’s potentially a national- security issue affecting all Americans. Counterterrorism agencies at all levels should pay close attention.

Under The Senate’s Treasonous Border Bill, Everybody Gets Asylum

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 15:00

The bill erases our borders. Who are these breaker of oaths elected to representative?

Oath of office: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

It’s DOA in the House but any Republican in the Senate who supports this Open Border bill will tell us everything we need to know about who they are. It will be a clarifying vote.
Incredible they got this far with such a dog of a bill. But it still has eroded the moral high… https://t.co/yBLYB311fl

Under The Senate’s Atrocious Border Bill, Everybody Gets Asylum

By: Margot Cleveland, The Federalist, February 05, 2024

Congress apparently wants to open America to every citizen of the world who heralds from a country where the government cannot control crime.

The Senate’s emergency appropriations bill released on Sunday won’t address the border crisis, and contrary to the accomplice media’s spin, the spending bill won’t “severely curtail asylum at the US southern border.”

The bill could have had the Senate reclaim the reins of lawmaking from the executive and judicial branches and clarify that widespread criminality in another country is not a basis for asylum in America. Instead, the 370-page bill, the “Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024,” includes funding for both Israel and Ukraine, plus decidedly insufficient provisions for addressing aliens and immigration.

The backers of the Senate bill seek to portray its provisions as, in the words of Joe Biden, the “toughest and fairest set of border reforms in decades.” There is little that is “tough” in the bill, however, and what is can easily be sidestepped — either by the Biden administration or the throngs of illegal aliens invading from the south.

Consider, for instance, the “emergency authority” the bill would grant to the secretary of homeland security to “summarily remove” aliens. But that authority only arises if the number of encounters with aliens at the border averages 4,000 for seven consecutive days or more than 8,500 in any one day.

Beyond the flood of aliens allowed to enter the United States without triggering the emergency authority, the statutory exemptions gut the secretary’s authority. Specifically, the bill provides that the border emergency authority cannot be used against “an unaccompanied alien child,” so every illegal alien who is under 18 — or can pass as someone who is under 18 — will be allowed in.

DESTROYING OUR KIDS: Student Grades Get Even Worse After California School Spends $250,000 On ‘Woke Kindergarten’ Program

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 14:00

The school spent $250,000 in federal funds provided by a program meant to help boost test scores for some of the country’s lowest-performing schools, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, but after two years with “Woke Kindergarten,” students’ scores are reportedly worse.

A teacher at Glassbrook Elementary said trainers with ‘Woke Kindergarten’ told him a focus in the classroom should be to ‘disrupt racism’

Schools have been ‘devastated’ by the Leftist approach to education: Jack Brewer

Students at a San Francisco Bay-area elementary school — where officials hired a for-profit company called “Woke Kindergarten” to train teachers — are continuing to struggle with some of the lowest math and reading scores in the state, according to a report.

The school spent $250,000 in federal funds provided by a program meant to help boost test scores for some of the country’s lowest-performing schools, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, but after two years with “Woke Kindergarten,” students’ scores are reportedly worse.

In a 4% drop in both areas in the last two years, less than 12% of the students at Glassbrook Elementary in Hayward, California, can read at their grade level and under 4% are proficient in math, according to the Chronicle.

Hayward Unified School District Superintendent Jason Reimann told the Chronicle that hiring “Woke Kindergarten,” which he said was supported by the parents and teachers after it was approved by the board, was more about boosting attendance than test scores. He said attendance has gone up almost 20%.

He said, “helping students feel safe and whole is part and parcel of academic achievement. I get that it’s more money than we would have liked to have spent.”

He added, “We are in favor 100% of abolishing systems of oppression where they hold our students back. What I do believe is we should pick providers based on their work and how effective they are.”

“Woke Kindergarten” describes itself on its website as “supporting children, families, educators and organizations in their commitment to abolitionist early education and pro-black and queer and trans liberation.”

The organization also has “Woke” words of the day like “ceasefire” “abolish” and “Woke Wonderings” about challenging the “legitimacy of the Supreme Court” and abolishing the police, money and the military.

Another “wondering” asked, “If the United States defunded the Israeli military, how could this money be used to rebuild Palestine?”

“Our reading scores are low,” a Glassbrook teacher, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Chronicle. The funds “could have gotten us a reading interventionist.”

The teacher added of the “Woke Kindergarten” training, “It slowly became very apparent if you were a dissenting voice that it’s not what they wanted to hear.”

Tiger Craven-Neeley, another teacher at the school, told the Chronicle that “Woke Kindergarten” trainers told him he should focus on “disrupt[ing] Whiteness” in the classroom.

“What does that mean?” he said to the Chronicle. “I just want to know, what does that mean for a third-grade classroom?”

Craven-Neeley, who said he supports discussing racism in the classroom, said his requests for clarifications got him temporarily banned from training sessions.

He added that one of the trainers referred to the “so-called United States” in one of the sessions.

Supreme Court Gives Colorado Secretary of State 10 Minutes to Argue Why Trump Should Be Blocked From Ballot

Mon, 02/05/2024 - 13:08

That’s ten minutes more than Trump got before they unilaterally kicked him off the ballot. And ten minutes more than Trump got when election fraud was brought before them in 2021.

Geller Report Mr. Snipe opines:

‘The real question is why the SCOTUS is hearing this case at all? Give her one minute. Why not tell this nut that the case has “No Standing” like Roberts did when election fraud was brought before them in 2021? Is Roberts going to rewrite the US Constitution on 14th like he did with Obamacare? There are several immediate constitutional issues that even a squishy John Roberts and Amy Squishy Barrett should understand if they can read the 14th Amendment.

Prior constitutional scholars have argued that the 14th Amendment does not apply to presidents since he is a member of the executive branch and not as a public official or military member.

Trump has not been convicted of an insurrection under 14th Amendment Section 2. He was charged in second fake impeachment in 2021 and found not guilty.

The state elected courts, election boards, secretary of states, do not have jurisdiction over the 14th Amendment no matter what their state constitution states.

Even if Trump had been charged and exonerated of an insurrection by the US Senate during the second fake impeachment in 2021, under the 5th Amendment of double jeopardy he cannot be tried twice for same offense.

Even if Trump had been charged and convicted of an insurrection only Congress under 14th Amendment Section 5 can remove him from ballot using simple majority vote.

If Congress under 14th Amendment Section 5 removed him from ballot using simple majority vote, unlike an impeachment conviction he can still appeal his removal to the federal courts.

If Trump had been charged and convicted of an insurrection by the US Senate in 2021 by 2/3 vote during the second fake impeachment in 2021, he could not appeal the conviction and removal from the ballot.

So there-what’s all the fuss about?

Supreme Court Gives Colorado Secretary of State 10 Minutes to Argue Why Trump Should Be Blocked From Ballot

The top court is weighing whether to rule in favor of or against a Colorado Supreme Court decision to bar Trump from the ballot on 14th amendment grounds.

By Tom Ozimek, February 2, 2024:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday granted Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold—who called former President Donald Trump an “ineligible insurrectionist”—just 10 minutes at a hearing next week to argue before the court why she thinks he should be barred from the ballot.

Ms. Griswold, a Democrat and fierce Trump critic, has filed multiple briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court, which is weighing whether to rule in favor of or against the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to bar President Trump from the ballot on 14th amendment grounds.
In a Jan. 26 filing with the U.S. Supreme Court, Ms. Griswold asked for enlargement and division of time for oral arguments at a hearing next week so that she could have time to provide the court with an “important perspective” on Colorado’s election laws.
Story continues below advertisement

The Supreme Court said in its decision that it would grant Ms. Griswold just 10 minutes to make her case for why, according to her subsequent Jan. 31 filing, President Trump supposedly engaged in an insurrection and so should be barred from appearing on Colorado’s presidential ballot.

Even though Ms. Griswold did not take a position on President Trump’s eligibility during a trial in district court, she’s revealed her anti-Trump bias repeatedly, including when she went on CNN to denounce the former president as a “danger to American democracy.”

But when, on appeal, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled to bar President Trump from the ballot based on the idea that he had “engaged in insurrection” by delivering a speech on Jan. 6, Ms. Griswold said the court “got it right.”
