Nazi Collaborator George Soros Buying Second-Largest Chain of Radio Stations, Hundreds of American Radio Stations Ahead of 2024 Election

Thu, 02/15/2024 - 16:28

Taking over communications is an essential component to communist rule.

For years, the evil hand of Soros has tried to take down the country until he finally he found a backdoor for his perfidy. Perfect end run. This scourge has done incalculable harm to our country. Revoke his citizenship and ban this villain.

“He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity.” – Elon Musk

Hostile foreign actor buying up legacy and social media.  Why is this hostile foreign actor still allowed to undermine and sabotage our system of governance and law and order?

His background? George Soros on collaborating with the Nazis, “”for me, it was a very positive experience,” “it was a very happy making, exhilarating experience.”

Read this from 2004. And this from 1997.

Left Wing Billionaire George Soros Buying Hundreds of American Radio Stations Ahead of 2024 Election

By Mike LaChance, Feb. 14, 2024:

George Soros, the left’s favorite billionaire, is buying up American radio stations by the hundreds, ahead of the 2024 election.

This is obviously part of a strategy, because that’s what Soros does. He hatches backdoor plans to exert influence over American politics. A few years back, he pumped a ton of cash into district attorney races across the country and we all know how that worked out.

This is his new plan. Could there be more to this than gaining media influence?

The Washington Times reports:George Soros has purchased a potentially controlling stake in America’s second-largest chain of radio stations.

According to bankruptcy filings cited Wednesday in the New York Post, his Soros Fund Management has bought $400 million of debt in the Audacy chain.

The Post reported that the Fund’s stake comes to about 40% of Audacy’s debt, at a value of about 50 cents on the dollar.

“Although not a majority, [that] could yield effective control of the media giant when it emerges from bankruptcy,” the Post wrote.

A Republican insider “close to the situation” told the Post that Mr. Soros could be making the election-year purchase in a bid to influence public opinion.

“This is scary,” the source said.

Why is he even being allowed to do this?

This ran in the Jerusalem Post in 2015. Needs repeating.

When we were led into the gas chamber, YOU said nothing

When we were forcibly converted, YOU said nothing

When we were thrown out of a country just for being Jews, YOU said nothing

When we now defend ourselves all of a sudden, YOU have something to say

How did we take our revenge on the Germans for their Final Solution?

How did we take revenge on the Spanish for their Inquisition?

How did we take revenge on Islam for being Dhimmi?

How did we take revenge on the lies of the Protocols of Zion?

We studied our Torah

We innovated in medicine

We innovated in defense systems

We innovated in technology

We innovated in agriculture

We made music

We wrote poetry

We made the desert bloom

We won Noble prizes

We founded the movie industry

We financed democracy

We fulfilled the word of Hashem by becoming a light unto the Nations of the Earth

So World when you criticize us for defending our heritage and our ancestral homeland we the Jew’s of the World do exactly what you did, we ignore you.

You have proven to us for the last 2,000 years that when the chips are down you don’t care.

Now leave us alone and go sort out you own back yard whilst we continue our 5775-year old [Editor: 5784 now] mission, enhancing the World we share.

CNN Worries That Muslim Migrant Gang Rape Will Bolster the ‘Far Right’

Thu, 02/15/2024 - 14:42

“Far Right” = the rational.

Jihad Watch: According to the left’s moral compass, the only determining factor for whether something is right or wrong is whether it aids or hinders the leftist agenda. CNN demonstrated this anew on Sunday when its reporting about a gang rape in Italy was focused not on the horror of the crime itself, but on how those all-purpose bogeymen, the “far right,” would capitalize upon it.

CNN headlined its story this way: “An alleged gang rape shocks Italy, and provides fodder for an ascendant far right.” It was referring to an incident that took place on Jan. 30 in the Sicilian city of Catania. The Italian-language il Giornale reported on Feb. 3 that Catania was “in shock over what happened to a thirteen-year-old girl, raped by a gang of seven Egyptian boys in the municipal gardens of Villa Bellini, one of the two oldest gardens in the Sicilian city.” Three of the Egyptians were minors.

The girl “and her seventeen-year-old boyfriend were approached by the pack near the bathrooms of the municipal garden of Villa Bellini, at that hour almost deserted. At a later time, the foreigners threatened the couple: while the boy was beaten, immobilized and kept away, the thirteen-year-old was raped by two of the suspects while the other five looked on. Panicked and in pain, after the second abuse the young woman found the strength to free herself from her tormentor and escape with her boyfriend.” This appalling has shaken the entire nation of Italy and has become the linchpin for a national discussion about mass Muslim migration into the country.

As far as CNN is concerned, that’s the problem. Its Sunday report asserted that the gang rape “has become not only a symbol of violence against women in the country but a cause célèbre for Italy’s far-right government.” The crime “was soon seized upon as evidence that migrants should be blocked from entering the country.” In Italy, it seems, the right-wing “seizes”; in the U.S., Republicans “pounce.”

CNN noted that the accused gang rapists “entered Italy by boat in 2021 and 2022 as unaccompanied minors, according to Catania police. Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, one of the country’s most visible far-right figures, said on X that they should not have been allowed to stay.” Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, meanwhile, “expressed her solidarity with the alleged rape victim and her family.”

This being CNN, we’re told that the real story here is not the heinous gang rape of a thirteen-year-old girl, but (you guessed it) racism: “the ways in which the cases between those with Italian suspects and those with Egyptian suspects are being handled are already drawing scrutiny.” This was because the Egyptians “have been granted fast-track trials, their lawyers told CNN, which means they will be held behind closed doors and sealed.”

Released Illegal Alien Who Beat NYPD Just Arrested AGAIN for Robbing Macy’s and Beating Security Guard

Wed, 02/14/2024 - 18:39

One of the illegal aliens charged in the beating of two NYPD officers last month in Times Square has been arrested again – this time for robbing a Macy’s in Queens. Just to be clear, the first and  only purpose to government is protect and defend its citizenry. We have a Democrat-run government at war against its own people.

Suspect in Times Square NYPD attack arrested for shoplifting in Macy’s

By Michael Stallone, Fox News, February 14, 2024:

NEW YORK CITY – The NYPD said a suspect charged in the beating of two NYPD officers last month in Times Square has been arrested again – this time for allegedly shoplifting from the Macy’s location at Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst.

According to police, 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel was believed to have left New York City for California on a bus. But he’s now been charged following the Tuesday incident.

Around 5:30 p.m., police said Gomez-Izquiel was one of four men stopped by a security guard who saw them shoplifting. The four individuals, acting in concert, allegedly removed store merchandise and concealed it into a bag before attempting to leave.

Police said one man punched the security guard in the face before the group ran off. Gomez-Izquiel was caught and charged with robbery and petit larceny. The others were last seen running westbound on Queens Boulevard with around $608 worth of clothing.

The 27-year-old security guard suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention on scene.

Police initially arrested four people, and then a fifth person a few days later, but outrage grew after all were released without bail.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old boy also suspected of taking part in the attack was arrested Tuesday in the Bronx.

The teen was arrested around 6:40 p.m. and charged with assault.

Newly Surfaced E-mail Helps Prove Bidens in Business with Beijing Chinese State-Linked Company

Newly surfaced e-mail allegedly helps prove Bidens in biz with Beijing-linked firm while Joe was still VP

By:Steven Nelson, NY Post, Feb. 13, 2024:

A newly surfaced document allegedly helps prove Hunter Biden was working with Chinese state-linked CEFC China Energy while his dad was still vice president — as suspected by Republicans leading the impeachment inquiry into reputed corruption by the president.

President Biden has repeatedly claimed his family never got money from China​ — despite his own alleged direct involvement in relations with two different Chinese government-backed ventures.​

“We anticipate working together on a number of opportunities in the US and abroad,” says the potentially damning March 22, 2016, letter that surfaced Tuesday and was addressed to CEFC Executive Director Jianjun Zang on Hunter’s letterhead about 10 months before his dad Joe left office as vice president.

“I believe we have presented a collection of projects that parallel the interests of you and your team and we look forward to discussing them in detail,” says the draft letter to Zang, which was distributed among Hunter and his partners Rob Walker and James Gilliar as an e-mail attachment.

“As we await your next visit to the United States, please continue to coordinate all matters with my confidant and trusted advisor, James Gilliar,” the letter says.

Joe Biden Was ‘Enabler of Complex Scheme’ To Enrich His Family, ‘Serious Corruption’ by Biden Clan, Testifies Close Biden Business Associate Before Congress

Wed, 02/14/2024 - 16:56

Joe Biden’s Mr. Biden’s involvement in his son’s foreign dealings must be investigated as “high crime and misdemeanor,” and prosecutors should look into the president’s involvement as well.

​​“I want to be crystal clear: From my direct personal experience and what I have subsequently come to learn, it is clear to me that Joe Biden was ‘the Brand’ being sold by the Biden family.” “His family’s foreign influence peddling operation — from China to Ukraine and elsewhere — sold out to foreign actors who were seeking to gain influence and access to Joe Biden and the United States government.”

“Joe Biden was more than a participant in and beneficiary of his family’s business; he was an enabler…” “I am making this statement to set the record straight about the involvement of the Biden family — Vice President Biden, his brother Jim Biden, and his son Hunter Biden — in dealings with the Chinese,” Mr. Bobulinski said at the time. “I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed business with Hunter. That is false. I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden.”

Biden Was ‘Enabler of Complex Scheme’ To Enrich His Family, Associate of Son Hunter Says, Describing ‘Serious Corruption’ by Biden Clan

Tony Bobulinski worked for years on a joint venture between the Biden family and a Chinese Communist Party-linked energy firm.

By: Matthew Rice, NY SUN, February 13, 2024:

A former close business associate of Hunter Biden has told Congress that President Biden was aware of his son’s business dealings and even discussed the “broad contours” of those arrangements after he left the White House in 2017. The associate says that Biden family members “sold” the elder Mr. Biden’s name to foreign entities for tens of millions of dollars, dangling the prospect of access to the family patriarch.

“For nearly four years, I have tried to tell the American people the truth about serious corruption at the very top of their government,” the associate, Tony Bobulinski, told the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, which are leading the impeachment probe into the president.

Mr. Bobulinski worked with the younger Mr. Biden at one of the Biden family’s many consulting outfits. This venture — SinoHawk Holdings — involved the first son and the president’s younger brother, James Biden, and was intended to develop infrastructure, energy, and technology partnerships between American firms and entities in Communist China.

“I want to be crystal clear: From my direct personal experience and what I have subsequently come to learn, it is clear to me that Joe Biden was ‘the Brand’ being sold by the Biden family,” Mr. Bobulinski told House impeachment investigators. “His family’s foreign influence peddling operation — from China to Ukraine and elsewhere — sold out to foreign actors who were seeking to gain influence and access to Joe Biden and the United States government.”

“Joe Biden was more than a participant in and beneficiary of his family’s business; he was an enabler, despite being buffered by a complex scheme to maintain plausible deniability,” he continued.

Mr. Bobulinski, who is a Navy veteran from a family with a long tradition of career military service, first made national news just hours before a 2020 presidential debate. He appeared in front of cameras to detail his relationship with the first son and how he believed the Biden family was engaging in a corrupt scheme. He also first made the allegations that money from foreign entities was set aside by Biden associates for “the Big Guy,” whom Mr. Bobulinski says is the president.


“I am making this statement to set the record straight about the involvement of the Biden family — Vice President Biden, his brother Jim Biden, and his son Hunter Biden — in dealings with the Chinese,” Mr. Bobulinski said at the time. “I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed business with Hunter. That is false. I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden.”

Mr. Bobulinski blamed the “so-called mainstream media” and the federal government for not taking his accusations seriously for all these years. He says that he met with the elder Mr. Biden in 2017 to discuss his and the first son’s burgeoning relationship with a Chinese energy company, CEFC. Members of the Biden family were paid millions of dollars as the company, which had close ties to the Chinese government, pursued energy deals in America.

“Joe Biden was aware of the CEFC transaction, enabled it, and had a constitutional responsibility and obligation to the American people to shut it down before it began,” Mr. Bobulinski alleges. “This is because CEFC had been identified as a known surrogate of the Chinese Communist Party by the U.S. government and prosecutors in the Southern District of New York as far back as 2016.”

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas IMPEACHED

Wed, 02/14/2024 - 16:10

Mayorkas became the first sitting cabinet official in history to be impeached. Will it change Biden’s border invasion? I don’t see how.

Republican-led House impeaches Alejandro Mayorkas on second try.

The GOP-controlled House impeached Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on a largely party-line vote, succeeding on a second try after an embarrassing defeat last week, Michelle Hackman reports.

With the 214-213 vote Tuesday evening, Mayorkas became the first sitting cabinet official in history to be impeached. The Republicans allege that Mayorkas has willfully refused to enforce the nation’s immigration laws, pointing to the record number of illegal crossings at the southern border in the last few years. Democrats say the impeachment is illegitimate.

The effort last week to impeach Mayorkas fell just one vote short of passage, with three Republicans voting with all Democrats against the move. The defeat highlighted the party’s lack of wiggle room on contentious legislation: Its majority in the House is razor-thin—219 to 212— with all members present.

The Federalist:

Mayorkas was impeached for “Willful and Systemic Refusal to Comply With the Law” and “Breach of the Public Trust.”

Mayorkas, Johnson said, “has undermined public trust through multiple false statements to Congress, obstructed lawful oversight of the Department of Homeland Security, and violated his oath of office.”

Lawmakers accused Mayorkas of deliberately undermining the administration’s constitutional obligation to secure the border through years of initiatives aimed at circumventing U.S. immigration laws. The DHS chief has welcomed wave after wave of unchecked illegal immigration, dramatically expanding parole and the CBP One App, which allows migrant entry so long as an appointment with officials is on the calendar. From the time President Biden took office through the beginning of October 2023, an estimated 1.7 million known “gotaways” had come into the United States unvetted, according to the House Judiciary Committee. More than 10 million total illegal immigrants have reportedly flooded the country under the Biden administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released the latest data on migrant encounters over the weekend, revealing more than 176,000 border encounters for January, which marks the slowest month of the fiscal year. According to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), however, the latest numbers “are nothing to crow about.”

“Between April 2006 (when agents nabbed just short of 161,000 illegal migrants) and February 2021, apprehensions exceeded 128,000 in just one month: May 2019, when agents stopped fewer than 133,000 aliens who had crossed the border illegally,” wrote CIS Resident Fellow Andrew Arthur. “In other words, there were only 3.4 percent fewer apprehensions last month than in the worst month for apprehensions at the Southwest border in the 13-year period between May 2006 and May 2019.”

Tuesday’s vote was the second time House Republicans sought to pass impeachment articles against the DHS secretary. The first full-chamber vote failed last week when a trio of House Republicans, including Colorado’s Ken Buck, Wisconsin’s Mike Gallagher, and California’s Tom McClintock, joined Democrats to block the resolution. The same three GOP lawmakers voted again with Democrats Tuesday night, but this time Republicans were boosted by the return of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, who was back to Capitol Hill following cancer treatment.

Republicans LOSE Special Election to Democrats After Throwing Republican George Santos Out of Congress

Wed, 02/14/2024 - 14:58

The tiny majority the GOP has in the House, just got smaller. The removed a Republican to install a Democrat. GOP is nothing more than controlled opposition.

Democrats in Congress  support terrorism, engage in criminal conduct, and break the law repeatedly snf are safe from any repercussion but the GOP taking out one of our own? They move faster than a rat up a drainpipe.

The Republican party should go the way of the Whig party, one of the two major parties in the United States between the late 1830s and the early 1850s, rendered obsolete for many of the same reasons. The Whigs collapsed and the Republican party emerged.

The outcome of expelling George Santos: Democrats gain a seat.

Leftwing media is rejoicing:

George Santos tore into the Republican Party on Tuesday night after a Democrat won his old House seat in a special election triggered by Santos’ historic expulsion from Congress.

New York’s 3rd district flipped from red to blue as Tom Suozzi—a Democrat who previously represented the Queens and Long Island district before an unsuccessful 2022 gubernatorial bid—clinched the seat vacated by Santos’ expulsion in the wake of an indictment on fraud charges. In public and in private, Santos wasted no time in savaging his former colleagues over the defeat, which now makes the GOP’s razor-thin House majority even narrower.

Santos told the New York GOP in a text message: “I hope you guys are happy with this dismal performance and the 10 million dollars your futile Bull Shit cost the party.” “I look very much forward to seeing most of you lose due to your absolute hate filled campaign to remove me from Congress arbitrarily,” he added. “Now go tell the Republicans Base [sic] what you fucking idiots did and good luck raising money next quarter.”

The House voted to expel Santos in December after a withering Ethics Committee report alleged that he’d blown donors’ cash on personal luxuries including Botox treatments and OnlyFans subscriptions. The report followed a slew of criminal charges related to fraud, identity theft, and making false statements about his finances. His brief time in office had also been overshadowed by countless media reports covering the increasingly baroque list of lies he’d told about his life story and professional history.

As his old seat flipped blue, Santos was apparently not going to miss the opportunity to score some points from the fact that his expulsion—which was backed by 105 GOP lawmakers—had now cost the Republican Party dearly.

“To my former colleagues in the house GOP please make these idiots pay you guys $10million back,” Santos wrote on X, tagging several former New York colleagues who pushed for his downfall. “These RINO’s are the most effective democrats operatives in the nation!”

He also called for Nassau County Republican Committee Chairman Joseph G. Cairo Jr.—who backed Mazi Pilip’s candidacy and reportedly served as her chief strategist—to resign. Santos said he had won the district without any “Establishment money,” whereas: “Tonight the establishment set $10 million on fire!”

“I FLIPPED a 23 year Blue seat with the help of grassroots activists and by activating the base with retail politics,” he fumed. Hey @NassauNYGOP money does not buy votes, it’s respecting the wishes of the base that wins votes. #NY3 is #MAGA country and since MAGA was disrespected, MAGA stayed home!”

His sentiments were echoed by Donald Trump, who slammed Pilip as a “very foolish woman” and attributed her defeat to her failure to endorse his 2024 presidential campaign. “[S]he would have easily WON if she understood anything about MODERN DAY politics in America,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post.

“MAGA, WHICH IS MOST OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, STAYED HOME – AND IT ALWAYS WILL, UNLESS IT IS TREATED WITH THE RESPECT THAT IT DESERVES,” he continued. The former president went on to say “I WANT TO BE LOVED” and demanded that the GOP put forward a “REAL” candidate to run against Suozzi in November.

Bloodbath at Paramount claims 800 jobs including CBS News journalists embroiled in controversy

By: Alexandra Steigrad, NY Post, Feb. 13, 2024

Several CBS News reporters were caught up in layoffs at Paramount Global that claimed 800 jobs, including one who is embroiled in a high-stakes First Amendment fight — and another who has reportedly weathered HR probes over his workplace behavior, The Post has learned.

Catherine Herridge — an award-winning senior correspondent whose First Amendment case is being closely watched by journalists nationwide — was among the hundreds of employees at CBS parent Paramount who got pink slips on Tuesday, sources told The Post.

The carnage provoked outrage from the rank-and-file at CBS, with some focusing their ire on Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish, who pulled down $32 million in total compensation last year despite the company’s ever-shrinking financial profile.

“Everybody in the newsroom is pissed that Bob Bakish is making over $30 million and he’s making these cuts,” one insider fumed.

Elsewhere, some suspected the layoffs were more than just cost-cutting.

Sources said Herridge had clashed with CBS News president Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews — a sharp-elbowed executive who was investigated in 2021 over favoritism and discriminatory hiring and management practices, as revealed by The Post.

Sources said CBS News’ Washington bureau, where Herridge covered national security and intelligence, was hit particularly hard.

Among the other Washington casualties, sources said, was CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues, who was subjected to HR probes over his workplace behavior, including an alleged incident in which he dressed down a female colleague in a “20-minute rant.”

When the incident was investigated in 2021, insiders said, Ciprian-Matthews — who insiders have accused of promoting minorities while unfairly sidelining white journalists — attempted to “blame” the female correspondent and eventually gave Pegues a promotion…..

Lawsuit: VA Stripping Benefits from J6 Defendants Pre-trial

Tue, 02/13/2024 - 17:00

The treasonous Democrats CANNOT do this. Apart from innocent until proven guilty, there was no crime. These patriots were protesting against the election coup d’etat.

The Democrats have infiltrated every agency and destroyed our institutions from within. This was key to Obama doctrine.

Lawsuit: VA Stripping Benefits from J6 Defendants Pre-trial

By:Wendi Strauch Mahoney , Uncovered DC, February 12, 2024:

It appears the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is targeting some J6 defendants by allegedly reducing or removing their benefits, in some cases pre-trial, which is against Department stated policy. Three J6 defendants brought their allegations to investigative journalist Breanna Morello, who then submitted FOIA requests in December 2023 on behalf of all three. They are JD (Jesus) Rivera, Hector Santos, and Kenneth Harrelson. The VA has been non-compliant with Morello’s requests and is now out of compliance with its policies because it has exceeded the time to respond. The policy states the VA has twenty working days to respond to a FOIA. Morello followed up with an email to the VA on February 6; however, she says the VA has yet to answer. As such, the VA is allegedly unlawfully withholding records, prompting Morello to file a lawsuit last Thursday, February 8. Morello contacted UncoverDC on the same day of her filing.

According to the lawsuit, Morello’s FOIA requested from the VA’s benefits and media/communications department emails sent and received from 3/1/23-11/1/23 on behalf of the three individuals, J6 defendants, who are also veterans. To date, Morello has received no acknowledgment of her requests and no determination as to whether the VA would comply with her request. Morello seeks to understand what prompted the VA’s decision to reduce or remove benefits, especially in cases where there were no felony charges involved or in one case where benefits were affected prior to conviction.

In cases with a felony conviction, the VA can “reduce compensation when a veteran is in any local, state or federal jail or prison for more than 60 days.” However, the VA may not withhold an individual’s benefits while awaiting trial. Upon release, however, a veteran can “resume receiving pre-incarceration disability payments.” The individual must “notify the VA within one year of release or provide official paperwork indicating scheduled release date.”

Jesus Rivera

Rivera, age 38, received word in July from the VA that the Department had reduced his VA benefits “from a 90% rate to a 10% rate effective the 61st day of confinement” following his conviction. However, Rivera had no felony conviction, only misdemeanor charges. Rivera, a cinematographer by trade, went to the Capitol on January 6 as an aspiring journalist hoping to break into the field by recording the events that day. Instead, he told Morello, “the exact opposite happened.” Rivera served 6 of his 8-month sentence in federal prison for going inside the Capitol and filming events as they unfolded. He is now serving 12 months of supervised release.

REWARDING ISLAMIC ATROCITIES: After US, Britain and France Sanctions Jews is Judea and Samaria

Tue, 02/13/2024 - 16:00

After Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany on January 30, 1933, the Nazi leadership decided to stage an economic boycott against the Jews of Germany.The German boycott of Jewish-owned businesses is the direct antecedent to this action boycott and sanction the Jews.

The Islamic terror group Hamas committed the most unimaginably barbaric acts against Jews in modern history. Western elites are rewarding them led by the Democrat regime.

After US and Britain: France sanctions 28 Judea and Samaria Residents

Paris has decided to impose sanctions against 28 residents of Judea and Samaria, after Britain and the US imposed a similar decision.

By: Israel National News, Feb 13, 2024:

Paris decided to impose sanctions against 28 residents of Judea and Samaria, after Britain and the US imposed a similar decision.

The French Foreign Ministry said that “these steps are in line with the increase in settler violence against the Palestinian population in recent months.”

“As we have said on many occasions, Israel is responsible to put an end to this and prosecute the perpetrators of the violence.”

Officials in France added that they are working to have the sanctions against those settlers imposed throughout Europe as well.

A repeated tactic by Palestinian Arabs and other Islamists is to accuse their victims of behaviour of which the victims are wholly innocent but of which the Palestinian Arabs and Islamists are guilty. Thus the Israelis, the victims of Palestinian genocidal terrorism, are accused of genocide for seeking to defend themselves. There are many other examples in similar vein.

This type of projection is rooted in the belief that, since Islam is perfection and the non-Islamic world is the province of the devil, Muslims can do no wrong against non-Muslims — who are then accused of committing the crimes perpetrated against them by Muslims. It is an inversion of reality that closely mirrors the way in which the former Soviet Union fried the brain in order to render its internal enemies helpless to resist its terror.

It is a strategy of war, used by Islamists in the psychological warfare they deploy against their victims. And now it is being used by the Biden administration and the British government against Israel.

This week, the British government imposed financial and travel restrictions against four Israeli residents of the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria. The Foreign Secretary, Lord Cameron, claimed that they were “extremist settlers” who were involved in “some of the most egregious abuses of human rights,” having carried out violent attacks on Palestinians in the “West Bank” by threatening them “often at gunpoint” and “forcing them off land that is rightfully theirs”.

The Foreign Office said that Israel’s “failure to act” had led to “an environment of near total impunity for settler extremists”, with violence in the West Bank reaching record levels in 2023.

The British are marching in lockstep with the Biden administration, which earlier this month also sanctioned four Israeli residents of these territories — one of whom is on the UK’s list — claiming that “extremist settler violence” had reached “intolerable levels”.

This is all an extraordinary and malign distortion and loss of proportion. As I wrote here, there is indeed a problem with violent Israeli “hilltop youth,” mainly aged between 14 and 19, but who are estimated to number only a few hundred among more than half a million Israeli residents of Judea and Samaria.

All such attacks are wrong and the Israelis should deal with these “hilltop youth” firmly — which they do, when they are indeed guilty of aggressive acts. But what Cameron and the Biden administration conspicuously fail to acknowledge is that in many of these violent encounters, the Israelis are responding to violence against them by the Palestinian Arabs.

Indeed, it is utterly astonishing that Cameron and the Americans defame the Israeli residents of the territories — the vast majority of whom live entirely peaceful and law-abiding lives — while making no mention whatsoever of the multiple attacks perpetrated by the Palestinian Arabs against these Israelis every day, vastly out-numbering attacks by the Israelis….(continue reading)

US Inflation Spike in January

Biden blamed potato chips and ice cream. Yes, that’s where we are.

“SHRINKFLATION” Accurately Describes Biden’s Diminishing Brain Capacity

US inflation rose hotter-than-expected 3.1% in January, dimming hopes for Fed rate cuts

By Shannon Thaler, The NY Post, Feb. 13, 2024:

US inflation rose 3.1% in January, a hotter-than-expected increase that further stokes doubts as to whether the Federal Reserve will begin cutting interest rates this spring.

Last month’s Consumer Price Index — which tracks changes in the costs of everyday goods and services — came in higher than the 2.9% figure economists had expected, according to FacfSet.

Core CPI — a number that excludes volatile food and energy prices — increased 0.4% in January, to 3.9%, after rising 0.3% in December. The figure, a closely-watched gauge among policymakers for long-term trends, was also higher than what economists at FactSet expected.

Dow futures were poised to drop early Tuesday as traders began to unwind bets that the Fed will begin easing rates sooner rather than later.

The latest inflation figure marks a cooldown from December’s stiffer-than-expected 3.4% gain, which dampened hopes on Wall Street that the first of three highly-anticipated interest rate cuts this year could come as soon as March.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics attributed the CPI’s increase to the shelter index, which rose 0.6% on a monthly basis and contributed to two-thirds of the monthly all-items increase. The food index increased 0.4% in January, more than the 0.2% it advanced in December.

JIHAD IMMIGRATION: Border Patrol Agents Arrest Illegal Who Is Islamic Terrorist On Terror Watchlist

Tue, 02/13/2024 - 14:30

Border Patrol found Arif Tanhah crossing over the border in California’s San Diego sector.

He’s a “positive match” on the terror watchlist since he’s a “known associate” of a terrorist organization.
It’s almost as if the Democrats want a jihad attack on the homeland.

EXCLUSIVE: Feds Nab Afghan Illegal Immigrant On Terror Watchlist

By: Jennie Taer, Daily Callrr, February 13, 2024:

  • Border Patrol arrested an Afghan national whose name appeared on the terror watchlist on Feb. 5 after he crossed the southern border illegally into California, according to an internal federal memo exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
  • Afghan national Arif Tanhah was a “positive match” on the terror watchlist as a “known associate” of a terrorist organization, according to the memo.
  • The DCNF has recently reported on an influx of terror-watchlisted individuals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, some of whom have been released from federal custody for periods of time.

Federal authorities nabbed an Afghan national on the terror watchlist on Feb. 5 after he crossed the southern border illegally into California, according to an internal federal memo exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Border Patrol agents arrested Arif Tanhah, 30, in California’s San Diego sector at the Jacumba Hot Springs and determined that he was a “positive match” on the terror watchlist as a “known associate” of a terrorist organization, according to the memo. While the memo didn’t disclose which terrorist organization Tanhah was allegedly associated with, the illegal immigrant denied ever having connections to Al Qaeda or the Taliban, according to notes accounting his interview with a federal agent reviewed by the DCNF.

The Afghan national admitted during an interview after crossing the border to being arrested for four days in 2011 after U.S. commandos and Afghan forces raided his family’s home in Afghanistan, according to the interview notes. Tanhah “deflected and refused to answer” when the federal agent asked why authorities raided his home and arrested him.

The DCNF isn’t publishing the notes of the Afghan nationals background interview to protect sources. Tanhah, who has made a credible fear claim of returning to Afghanistan, is in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody pending his case proceedings, according to an ICE source.

Asylum officers interview migrants to determine whether or not an individual has a “well-founded fear of persecution on account of your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion if returned to your country” that would keep them from returning home and place them into asylum proceedings, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

During his interview process, Tanhah told a U.S. federal agent that he traveled from Afghanistan to Iran, then Qatar, where he got a visa for Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Panama to make his way to the U.S. Along the way, Tanhah said he was stopped twice for biometric checks and questioning.

Tanhah said he spent $20,000 to reach the U.S., and that his primary source of funding is a brother in Kuwait, according to the interview notes.

He also shared that he was denied entry into Europe in 2020 and lived in Dubai from 2014 to 2019, where he did roofing. Tanhah stated that he didn’t know why he was denied entry into Europe.

The DCNF also reviewed the TikTok account Tanhah gave to federal authorities, which has more than 54,000 followers and appears to showcase parts of his journey, showing that his goal was to reach Canada. In his interview with the U.S. agent, Tanhah provided an address in San Antonio, Texas, where he said he planned to reside with the goal of permanently remaining in the U.S.

The TikTok account has a bio that reads “i love allah” and a series of posts showing his journey to the U.S., along with his Muslim faith. One of the posts reads “may allah protect Palestine” with an image of the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Border Patrol recorded the apprehensions of 172 individuals on the terrorist watchlist entering the United States illegally in fiscal year 2023. From October through December, Border Patrol recorded 50 encounters of terror watchlisted individuals, according to federal data.

Agents also recorded 98 encounters of individuals whose names appeared on the terror watchlist in fiscal year 2022 and 16 in fiscal year 2021, according to the data.

In recent weeks, the DCNF has reported on an influx of terror watchlisted migrants crossing the southern border illegally, some of whom have been released from federal custody for periods of time.

On Jan. 20, ICE officers in Minnesota arrested a member of the Somali terror group al-Shabaab after authorities released him shortly after he illegally crossed the southern border near San Ysidro, California, in March, according to an internal federal memo recently obtained by the DCNF. The Terrorist Screening Center deemed the 27-year-old Somali national “mismatch’” on the watchlist, but later determined to be a confirmed member of al-Shabaab after he was in the country for nearly a year.

On Feb. 6, Border agents nabbed an individual who crossed the southern border illegally and admitted to his previous ties to a Colombian terrorist organization, according to an internal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) memo exclusively obtained by the DCNF.

Federal immigration authorities also recently released a Pakistani national who illegally crossed the southern border into California whose name appeared on the terror watchlist for one day, according to an ICE memo reviewed by the DCNF.

HEROIC RESCUE: After Fierce Battle, IDF Rescues 2 Israeli Captives;

wo residents of Kibbutz Nir Itzhak kidnapped on October 7th airlifted to a hospital in central Israel, reunited with their families.

By: World Israel News Staff, February 12, 2024:

Two hostages kidnapped on October 7th were safely rescued from the Gaza Strip and returned to Israel early Monday morning, in a joint operation by the Israeli army, police, and Shin Bet intelligence agency.

The two rescued men were named as Norberto Louis Har, 70, and Fernando Simon Marman, 61. Both of the men are Argentinian-born residents of Kibbutz Nir Itzhak near Gaza.

“Overnight, we brought back Louis and Fernando. This was a complex rescue operation under fire based on sensitive intelligence. A professional and accurate operation,” IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said in a press conference shortly after the rescue.

According to a statement from Sheba Hospital in central Israel, Har and Marman are in good health and have been reunited with their family members.

The pair were being held in an apartment building in the city of Rafah, a Hamas stronghold near the Egyptian border.

According to Hagari, troops burst into the apartment to rescue Har and Marman, using “intense firepower” against terrorists in and around the building.

The Israeli Air Force was also involved in the rescue, targeting terrorists on the ground and clearing the way for ground forces to operate safely.

Argentine President Javier Milei, a strong supporter of Israel who visited the country just days ago, thanked Israel’s security forces on social media platform X.

“The Office of the President thanks the Israel Defense Forces, the Shin Bet and the Israel Police for having successfully completed the rescue of the Argentines Fernando Simon Marman and Louis Har,” his office tweeted.

Rent-Control Bank Panic: New York Regional Bank Crisis Caused by Government Rent Control Regulation

Mon, 02/12/2024 - 15:00

The government destroys everything it touches Rent stabilization arrived on the scene in 1969 and yet rent regulation in New York still operates under the pretense of being a temporary, emergency measure.w York still operates under the pretense of being a temporary, emergency measure.

With almost faultless precision the rent-regulation system bypasses, or hurts, those it was meant to help, and heaps most of its benefits on relatively privileged New Yorkers. The system does not help the poor; it particularly penalizes new New Yorkers, who have always been vital to the city’s economy; and it encourages landlords and tenants alike to behave in ways almost perfectly calculated to tighten the housing market still further and raise rental prices higher. (City Journal)

The Frozen City

Misguided policies keep some New Yorkers in subsidized apartments and raise costs for everyone else.

n New York, it’s the norm, not the exception, for rental housing to be shielded from market forces. About a million rental units are covered by rent stabilization, which limits how sharply a landlord can increase rent each year, and another 38,000 or so by rent control, which dictates the rent itself.

A New York Rent-Control Bank Panic

Investors fret about NYCB’s multi-family housing portfolio.

Regional bank share prices have tumbled since New York Community Bancorp (NYCB) reported surprisingly large losses on real-estate loans. Don’t blame this mini-bank panic only on underwater office buildings. Primary culprits are Albany’s destructive rent-control laws.

By: Wall Street Journal, February 12, 2024;

NYCB last month reported $552 million in credit losses, including a $185 million charge-off mostly from two office and condo building loans during the fourth quarter. These losses were bigger than investors expected. But what worries investors more is the bank’s $37 billion multi-family housing portfolio, about half of which are comprised of New York rent-regulated units.

The bank flagged that 14% of its $18 billion rent-regulated loan book is at risk of default. Its eventual losses could be bigger as rent-regulated buildings have recently been selling at a 30% to 60% discount from their purchase price. The values of rent-regulated buildings have fallen by some $75 billion, according to one estimate.

NYCB acquired the failed Signature Bank

’s deposits and some of its loans last spring. But the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. struggled to find a buyer for Signature’s $15 billion in loans that were backed primarily by New York rent-regulated buildings. Last autumn the agency finally unloaded the loans at a roughly 40% discount. Why have these loans become toxic?

Blame Democrats in Albany, who in 2019 restricted landlords’ ability to raise rents to pay for renovations and “de-regulate” rent-stabilized units. These apartments account for nearly half of the city’s rental housing. Landlords used to be able to charge the market rate once the rent exceeded $2,800 a month and a tenant moved out. No longer.

One result is that landlords have removed rent-regulated apartments from the market and are leaving them vacant rather than spend on maintenance and improvements that they can’t recoup. Tighter supply has pushed up rents in the non-regulated market—one reason Manhattan’s average market-rate monthly rent has surged 30% over the last two years.

Lower anticipated future rents have also slashed property values. Loans for buildings that were issued at low-interest rates—the average coupon for NYCB’s rent-regulated portfolio is 3.85%—will also have to be refinanced in the coming years. Some underwater owners may walk away. NYCB’s rent-regulated portfolio could be a ticking time bomb.

Meantime, the bank needs to raise more capital to meet tougher regulatory requirements after catapulting into the league of big regional banks. Its Signature acquisition means it must comply with stricter prudential rules for banks with more than $100 billion in assets. The Federal Reserve has also proposed toughening standards for the regional banks.

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.
