3 American Soldiers Killed, At Least 24 Wounded After Jihad Drone Attack in Jordan

Sun, 01/28/2024 - 16:33

What are U.S. troops doing in Jordan? Sitting ducks.

Why is the Biden regime funding Iran, the terror state behind the attacks?

Why is the Biden regime tying Israel’s hands behind her back and aiding the global jihad?

Pray for the fallen & their families.

This was all avoidable, Biden’s incompetence & Congress giving Biden the authority & funding to leave our troops deployed guarding Jordan’s border is inexcusable. https://t.co/GqqIBDtDjD pic.twitter.com/Pf9YgjM89i

CNN —

Three US Army troops were killed and at least two dozen service members were injured in a drone attack overnight on a small US outpost in Jordan, US officials told CNN, marking the first time US troops have been killed by enemy fire in the Middle East since the beginning of the Gaza war.

The killing of three Americans at Tower 22 in Jordan near the border with Syria is a significant escalation of an already-precarious situation in the Middle East.

US Central Command confirmed in a statement on Sunday that three service members were killed and 25 injured in a one-way drone attack that “impacted at a base in northeast Jordan.”

As of Friday, there had been more than 158 attacks on US and coalition forces in Iraq and Syria, though officials have described the constant volley of drones, rockets, and missiles as unsuccessful as they have frequently not caused serious injury or damage to infrastructure.

Former Intelligence Chief Predicts Europe’s ‘submission’ and fall to Islam

Sun, 01/28/2024 - 16:00

It already has, in many respects.

The end result will be the gradual destruction of our European cultures.’

By Raymond Ibrahim, Middle East Forum

Islam is on the verge of completely taking over Europe, in all ways — at least according to one who should know, Hans-Georg Maaßen, Germany’s top domestic intelligence chief from 2012 to 2018. In a recent interview, he stressed several points that spell the imminent downfall of Europe to Islam.

His warnings are buttressed by disturbing demographic changes. According to conservative estimates from Pew Research, over the next 25 years — meaning most of the current generation’s lifetime — Europe’s Muslim population will triple to a staggering 76 million. In fact, the actual current and future numbers of Muslims appear to be higher, though there are no official tallies. For example, in an earlier, 2011 study, Pew Research found that “The number of Muslims in Europe has grown from 29.6 million in 1990 to 44.1 million in 2010. Europe’s Muslim population is projected to exceed 58 million by 2030.” Clearly 58 million in five years’ time is more significant than 76 million in 25 years’ time.

Not only is mass migration responsible for Islam’s exponential growth in Europe, but once there, the average Muslim woman has significantly more children than the average European woman. “Muhammad” is taking West Europe by storm as the number one name for newborn baby boys.

During his interview, Hans-Georg Maaßen said that these large numbers are intentional, and the work of Europe’s ruling elite. For this intelligence chief, the “great replacement” theory is no myth. The more ideologically mixed a population is forced into becoming, the less able it is to identify itself, much less protect any beliefs:

The Islamization of International Law

Sun, 01/28/2024 - 15:00

The ‘genocide’ case in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel lifts the veil over a process that has been affecting the entire corpus of international law – already far exceeding its roots in the Israeli-Jihadi conflict. This case is not about Israel, it is about the future of international law and the slow creep of sharia infecting Western law.

Legendary Human Rights Scholar DAVID LITTMAN VIDEO INTERVIEW: OVERWHELMING ISLAMISATION OF THE UN

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was born after the ashes of World War II and established to ensure that a Holocaust would never happen again.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.

The introduction and slow creep of Islamic law really began with the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam (CDHRI), a declaration of the Muslim member states of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference adopted in Cairo, Egypt, on 5 August 1990, (Conference of Foreign Ministers, 9–14 Muharram 1411H in the Islamic calendar[2]) which provides an overview on the Islamic perspective on human rights, and affirms Islamic sharia as its sole source.

This declaration is widely acknowledged as an Islamic response to the United Nations‘s Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted in 1948.

It should never have been adopted by a civilized world body. The legendary human rights scholar David Littman spent the better part of his prestigious career warning of its peril to the West and freedom loving peoples the world over.

He spent decades working at the UN trying to get people to pay attention to this genocidal covenant – Hamas Charter. To his enormous credit. The charter came out Hamas charter in 1988 – and David Littman was already in front of the UN humans right commission in January 1989 protesting it (more.)

DAVID LITTMAN VIDEO INTERVIEW: OVERWHELMING ISLAMISATION OF THE UN

The Obama administration furthered the islamization of international law and signed on to the Cairo declaration.

Throughout her four years as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was Obama’s point-person in the administration’s collusion with the OIC. Among the most significant “achievements” of this partnership — and, from a constitutional perspective, the most appalling one — has been the adoption of Resolution 16/18. In blatant violation of the First Amendment, this provision calls on Western governments to outlaw any speech that “constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence” toward religion, on the rationale that such speech could provoke “religious hatred.” (more here)

Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration signed on to U.N. Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18, which mandates the suppression of speech that could cast Islam in a bad light — regardless of whether the speech is accurate or the negative impression it creates is justified.

The ‘Palestinianization’ of international law

Some may think this is solely Israel’s problem. That the double standard will stop there. I disagree.

By Robert Neufeld, January 18, 2024:

The genocide case in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) brought by South Africa against Israel lifts the veil over a process that has been affecting the entire corpus of international law – already far exceeding its roots in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This is the “Palestinization” of international law.

International law has always been deeply infested with politics, certainly when regarding the Laws of Armed Conflict. No country is eager to restrain itself according to external limits imposed upon its freedom to use its powers. Those who pushed for such restraints were usually those who could benefit from them, and those who objected were those who could lose their advantage.

It usually took dramatic and unfortunate events, which exacted a terrible price, to bring about significant leaps in law that truly benefit humanity. The most important of these was War World II, which led to the 1945 Geneva Conventions, and soon after, in 1948, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, which is now the focus of the ICJ.

This case is not about Israel, it is about the future of international law

For example, according to UN Watch, from 2015-2022, the UN General Assembly adopted 140 resolutions on Israel and 68 on other countries. Between 2006-2022, the UN Human Rights Council adopted 99 resolutions against Israel; 41 against Syria; 13 against Iran; 4 against Russia; and 3 against Venezuela. Regardless of the tens or even hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths each year in conflicts around the world – the unimaginable atrocities and millions displaced annually – an extra-terrestrial landing on Earth would be certain that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is this world’s main problem.

This does not stop at the gates of politics: willing or not, the entire body of international law is now being “Palestinized.” Core concepts of international law are literally being refashioned to accommodate Palestinian interests. The examples are abundant and – even more troubling – they have seeped into the mainstream. They have changed the understanding of international law, which is now viewed through a Palestinian prism.

One such notion is “occupation.”

AFTER MORE than 100 days of war, Israel has not yet taken control of the Gaza Strip which it left in 2005, evacuating all its settlements, and where Hamas has proudly ruled for 17 years, with complete civil and security dominance. Any Israeli who would have dared cross the border would have been either shot or taken hostage.

Yet, for most of the international community, Gaza is still “occupied” by Israel. A new framework was invented, mostly based on Israel’s control of the land borders (conveniently ignoring the Egyptian one of course), the air space, and the coastline. The absurdity hit an extreme when the South African legal delegation claimed before the ICJ that Israel had no right of self-defense following the October 7 massacre and that it is conducting operations in a territory it already “occupies.”

Then came the “apartheid” allegation against Israel.

What we know about it from the South African experience is no longer relevant: A country that has been widely recognized as the only democratic state in the Middle East, is now being demonized as the world’s worst violator of human rights, even with respect to its own two million Arab citizens, who enjoy unparalleled freedoms compared to most, if not all, Arab states. Israeli Arabs can vote, be elected to public office, and have even served as government ministers.

Numerous principles of International Humanitarian Law – the Laws of Armed Conflict – have been twisted, to cast Israel as a war criminal. From the principle of distinction to necessary precautions in attacks, to proportionality, to the means and methods of war – the standards are raised when it comes to Israel. Furthermore, even basic notions of international law, such as the definition of a “state,” have been reformulated to fit into the Palestinized paradigm.

But the allegation of genocide is the final nail in the coffin.

House GOP Drafts Articles Of Impeachment Against DHS Sec. Mayorkas

Sun, 01/28/2024 - 14:56

Color me skeptical. Mayorkas is implementing the radical policies of the illegitimate Biden regime. Even if he goes, he would be replaced with someone worse. This looks more like make busy fodder for the flapping tongues who pose and preach for the press but do nothing. Biden should be impeached.

The entire GOP should be singularly focused of election reform. Without election integrity, it’s game over.

House GOP Drafts Articles Of Impeachment Against Mayorkas

By: Jennie Taer, Daily Caller, January 28, 2024

The House Homeland Security Committee released draft articles of impeachment Sunday against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The first article of impeachment against Mayorkas is for “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” and the second is for “breach of the public trust,” according to a copy obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The committee held two hearings recently on impeachment proceedings against Mayorkas that centered around his handling of the southern border and heard the testimonies of Republican attorneys general, legal experts and mothers who’ve lost their kids to fentanyl and an MS-13 gang member. (RELATED: Agents ‘Absolutely’ Don’t Want To Cut Greg Abbott’s Razor Wire, Border Patrol Union President Says)

The first article surrounds the record levels of migrants coming illegally and getting released into the country that has happened under Mayorkas’ watch. One of the ways the committee believes Mayorkas played a role in the issue is through a September 2021 memo in which he directed his agency to limit immigration enforcement.

“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” Mayorkas wrote in the previous memo.

Border Patrol recorded more than 2.2 million encounters of migrants crossing the southern border illegally in fiscal year 2022 and more than 2 million in fiscal year 2023, according to federal data. Between October and December, there have been more than 629,000 illegal encounters at the southern border.

The second article asserts that Mayorkas lied to Congress when he said the southern border is “secure,” “no less secure than it was previously,” that it’s “closed,” and that DHS has “operational control” of the area. One section of the article points to Mayorkas’ previous statements supporting a false narrative accusing Border Patrol agents of “whipping” illegal migrants in September 2021.

A federal investigation later found that the agents didn’t engage in any whipping.

Trump Tax Leaker Gets The Hunter Biden Treatment With ‘Sweetheart Deal’ From DOJ

Trump Tax Leaker Gets The Hunter Biden Treatment With ‘Sweetheart Deal’ From DOJ

By: Paul Sperry, The Federalist, January 26, 2024:

Another apparent “sweetheart deal” negotiated by President Biden’s Justice Department in a politically charged case is drawing scrutiny.

Former IRS contractor Charles Edward Littlejohn, who stole and helped publicize the confidential tax records of Donald Trump and an estimated 7,500 other wealthy Americans, could face little or no jail time when he’s sentenced later this month, because the DOJ allowed him to plead guilty to a single felony count.

In a new court filing, prosecutors acknowledge the plea deal “does not account for the fact that he leaked thousands of individuals’ tax returns. His [sentencing] range would be the same today if he had leaked only a single return.”

But instead of seeking prison time for each of his offenses — or even for the two separate mass thefts he committed, one in 2019 and another in 2020 — the DOJ is asking a federal judge to sentence Littlejohn to just 60 months, the maximum for a single offense under the statute. Some political leaders angry over the plea deal say he should get 60 years, not months, for his crime — the biggest heist of IRS taxpayer data in history.

Attorneys for Littlejohn, 38, argue he actually deserves an even lower sentence, closer to the presentencing report’s range of four to 10 months, in part because he leaked the reams of stolen private income-tax data to “reputable news organizations — The New York Times and ProPublica — that he knew would handle the information responsibly.” They say a 60-month term is “equivalent to a 15-level upward departure” from the range prosecutors originally agreed to in the plea deal, and such a wide departure would be unprecedented.

The D.C. judge deciding Littlejohn’s fate “does not have unfettered discretion to depart from the applicable sentencing guidelines,” Littlejohn’s attorney Lisa Manning advised the court in papers filed last week.

U.S. District Judge Ana Reyes, a Biden appointee who has a record of meting out lenient sentences, will decide his punishment on Jan. 29.

The Times and ProPublica published dozens of stories based on the personal tax files the former Booz Allen Hamilton contractor electronically smuggled out of the IRS. Those articles largely advanced Democratic calls for further investigations into Trump and the need to raise taxes on the wealthy.

Against the backdrop of prosecutions of Donald Trump in an election year and the collapse of Hunter Biden’s earlier no-jail plea deal, which a Delaware judge rejected because it was “not straightforward” and contained “atypical provisions,” Littlejohn’s plea agreement is raising new questions about the politicization of justice.

Trump lawyer Alina Habba said Littlejohn’s admission of guilt looks “more like a Hunter Biden plea deal.” House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith agreed, complaining he’s getting off “with just a slap on the wrist.”

At a minimum, the Missouri Republican argues, Littlejohn, a Democrat donor who sought to damage Trump soon after his 2016 election, should have been charged with two “separate and distinct” unauthorized disclosures — one of Trump’s returns to the Times in 2019 and the separate tranche of thousands of returns he delivered to ProPublica in 2020.

“While some argue that he should have been charged with one count per taxpayer, it is clear to us that at a minimum he should have been charged with two counts of unauthorized disclosure and potentially with at least one count of obstruction of justice,” Smith wrote the DOJ in a recent letter, noting that Littlejohn took a number of measures to foil investigators.

Prosecutors say his victims total “over 1,000.” But the number of taxpayers whose privacy he violated could run in the several thousand.

According to recent court papers, Littlejohn rejoined Booz Allen in 2017 with the express purpose of getting assigned to the IRS and stealing Trump’s tax returns, which he downloaded in 2018. Then in June 2020, he began conducting searches of the IRS database to pull historic tax data on the wealthiest taxpayers in the country. Specifically, he constructed a query designed to call up the top 500 taxpayers by income by year for the previous 15 years. After running the query, he stole the entire data set, put it on a flash drive, and gave it to reporters at ProPublica, a left-leaning nonprofit funded by George Soros and other wealthy liberal donors. ProPublica, in turn, published nearly 50 articles using the purloined tax returns to show how the rich use loopholes in the tax code to avoid paying taxes. Congressional Democrats cited the series in their push for higher taxes on the wealthy.

There are so many victims of Littlejohn’s breach of protected taxpayer information — the largest in history — that DOJ has asked a federal judge in Washington for permission to create a public website to notify victims without reaching out to each person individually. Taxpayers will have to proactively search the site to discover if their most private financial records have been compromised.

“[The] number of potential victims in this case makes it impracticable to provide all of the victims the rights provided under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act,” the department said.

Biden Regime Sends ‘War Powers’ Notifications to Congress

Biden Pentagon Denies It’s at War with Houthis, Despite Biden Submitting ‘War Powers’ Notifications to Congress

President Joe Biden admitted the Iran-backed Houthis are “terrorists,” after revoking former President Donald Trump’s designation of the group as terrorists early on in his administration.

By: Kristina Wong, Breitbart, 25 Jan 2024:

The Biden Pentagon is denying it is at war with the Iran-backed Houthi forces, even as President Joe Biden has submitted notifications of military action to Congress as required by the War Powers Resolution.

On January 18, Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh was pressed by reporters if another round of U.S. military strikes against Houthi forces in Yemen meant that the U.S. was now at war with the Houthis. She, responded:

We are not at war with the Houthis. In terms of a definition, I think that would be more of a clear declaration from the United States.

However, Biden has submitted at least two notifications to Congress under the War Powers Resolution, which sets out the president’s reporting responsibilities on committing U.S. forces into hostilities “in the absence of a declaration of war.”

The War Powers Resolution requires the president to submit a report notifying Congress within 48 hours of introducing armed forces into “hostilities or situations where hostilities are imminent” and explaining why it was necessary, the constitutional and legislative authorities for doing so, and the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities or involvement.

The resolution also requires the president to provide information Congress may need to fulfill its constitutional responsibilities “with respect to committing the Nation to war and to the use of United States Armed Forces abroad.”

On Wednesday, January 22, 2024, Biden notified Congress after the U.S. and the U.K. conducted another round of military strikes against the Houthis in Yemen, in response to the Houthis firing missiles at U.S. and commercial vessels in the Red Sea since October.

Biden wrote:

I directed this military action consistent with my responsibility to protect United States citizens both at home and abroad and in furtherance of United States national security and foreign policy interests, pursuant to my constitutional authority as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive and to conduct United States foreign relations. The United States took this necessary and proportionate action consistent with international law and in the exercise of the United States’ inherent right of self-defense as reflected in Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. The United States stands ready to take further action, as necessary and appropriate, to address further threats or attacks.

He added, “I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution (Public Law 93-148). I appreciate the support of the Congress in this action.”

Prior to that, Biden submitted another notification to Congress on January 12, 2024, with the same justification.

The White House is halting the permitting process for several proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal projects over their potential impacts on climate change, an unprecedented move environmentalists have demanded in recent months.

In a joint announcement Friday morning, the White House and Department of Energy (DOE) said the pause would occur while federal officials conduct a rigorous environmental review assessing the projects’ carbon emissions, which could take more than a year to complete. Climate activists have loudly taken aim at LNG export projects in recent weeks, arguing they will lead to a large uptick in emissions and worsen global warming.

Republican Lawmakers in Pennsylvania Sue Biden and Democrat Governor For Unconstitutional Seizure of Election Powers, Removal of Voting Rules

Fri, 01/26/2024 - 14:25

Democrats unconstitutionality usurped legislators’ authority with their efforts to destroy voter integrity. Without election reform, it’s over.

Pennsylvania Republicans have filed a lawsuit alleging Biden and Gov. Josh Shapiro violated the U.S. constitution when they passed legislation loosening voting restrictions. The lawsuit is expected to be one of many to litigate voting and election rules in a battleground state that is critical to 2024’s presidential contest.

Pa. Republican lawmakers sue Biden and Shapiro over who sets rules for elections

The Republicans say the Legislature, not the governor, has the power

By: Ford Turner, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 26, 2024:

Two dozen Republican state lawmakers filed a federal civil rights lawsuit Thursday against President Joe Biden, Gov. Josh Shapiro and state election officials, alleging they usurped powers to run elections that belong to the state Legislature.

The plaintiffs specifically identified Mr. Shapiro’s September announcement on automatic voter registration as one of their examples. They include some lawmakers from southwestern Pennsylvania, and many are members of the conservative Pennsylvania Freedom Caucus. The caucus leader, Rep. Dawn Keefer, R-York, said the U.S. Constitution grants state lawmakers, not executives, the right to determine the manner of elections.

“The citizens of Pennsylvania have been victimized by extraordinary overreach of executive officials who have made changes to election laws with no authority to do so,” Ms. Keefer said in a news release issued by the Lebanon County-based Election Research Institute, which helped prepare the complaint. “If we don’t take action to stop this, there is no limit to the changes they might make to further erode Pennsylvania’s election system in 2024 and beyond.”

Manuel Bonder, a spokesman for Mr. Shapiro, said it was clear that the governor’s voter registration action was within his authority, and any suggestion to the contrary was frivolous.

“This administration looks forward to once again defending our democracy in court against those advancing extreme, undemocratic legal theories,” Mr. Bonder said. “Governor Shapiro remains focused on protecting our democracy and ensuring our elections are free, fair, safe, and secure.”

The U.S. Justice Department declined comment.

The plaintiffs cited an executive order issued by Mr. Biden in March 2021. The order laid out an effort to expand access to voter registration, modernize a federally run voter registration website, and expand voting access for people with disabilities and those serving overseas, among other things. The plaintiffs said the order requires federal agencies to partner with third-party, non-governmental organizations whose names are withheld from the public.

“Pennsylvania law prohibits public officials from entering into agreements with third-party entities for the registration of voters,” the press release said.

The September announcement from Mr. Shapiro unveiled a system where eligible Pennsylvanians would be registered to vote automatically when they conduct certain transactions at PennDOT centers, like renewing a driver’s license, unless they opt out. Previously, PennDOT center visitors had to make an on-screen choice to register, or “opt in.”

“Through the years, several attempts have been made by Pennsylvania lawmakers through the use of proper legislative process, to implement automatic voter registration in Pennsylvania,” the release said. “All have failed.”

The lawsuit also names officials at the Pennsylvania Department of State, including Secretary Al Schmidt.

Georgia Senate Ethics Committee Passes Bill to Remove Corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger from the Board of Elections and Investigate Him For Election Law Violations

Thu, 01/25/2024 - 21:53

The Georgia Senate Ethics Committee has passed a bill that would remove Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger from the Board of Elections and grant the board authority to investigate him for election law violations The bill will be voted on by the full senate in the coming weeks and should pass both houses easily. The bill would also allow the BOE to investigate local election officials as well. More importantly, the Board would have the power to hire their own investigators as opposed to relying on the Secretary of State’s office to do so. This is very good news heading into the November election.

Senate Committee Approves State Election Board Authority to Investigate Georgia Secretary of State

By Martin Matheny, WUGA Janaury 25, 2024:

Georgia’s Secretary of State could find himself under investigation by the State Board of Elections under the terms of legislation proposed in the Georgia Senate.

Senate Bill 358 would give the Board of Elections the power to investigate both the Secretary of State and local elections officials, and how those officials conduct elections. It also gives the Board the power to hire its own investigators instead of relying on the Secretary of State’s office to conduct investigations.

Senator Max Burns, a Republican from Sylvania, chairs the Senate Ethics Committee. He is also a sponsor of the bill. He said that the bill was driven, at least in part, by a debate among Board of Elections members last year.

“Last year, in the December meeting of the state election board, there was some discussion about whether or not the board had responsibility and oversight of the Secretary of State and the Office of the Secretary of State and their elections division.,” Burns said. “They split on that 2-2.”

Burns told his colleagues on the Senate Ethics Committee that the legislation was requested by members of the Board of Elections.

“We received communication from a member of the election board and then the Chair of the state Election Board,” he said. “So the chair of of the state election board in a letter to the Honorable Jon Burns, Speaker of the House and the Honorable Burt Jones, Lieutenant Governor of Georgia, requested that the legislation clarify the responsibility of the state election board and and its role in oversight.”

The bill would also remove the Secretary of State from the State Elections Board.

The Secretary of State’s office has questioned whether the bill is constitutional, but a lawyer for the Ethics Committee says the bill should pass constitutional muster.

SB 358 passed the Ethics Committee and could be voted on by the full Senate in the coming weeks.

49 of 51 Senate Democrats sign bill for Palestinian state

The only two to defer were John Fetterman (D-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News, January 25, 2024:

Almost all U.S. Senate Democrats signed an amendment backing Palestinian statehood as a means of solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but did not mention the ongoing war with Hamas.

Forty-nine out of 51 senators who caucus with the Democratic party supported the statement saying that it was U.S. policy to support a negotiated two-state solution that would end with “Israelis and Palestinians living side by side in peace, security, dignity, and mutual recognition.”

It then emphasized that this solution had to ”ensure the state of Israel’s survival as a secure, democratic, and Jewish state, and fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a state of their own.”

The brief language was attached to a forthcoming bill authorizing additional emergency military aid to Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan as well as funds to shore up America’s own borders that have been overwhelmed by millions of illegal immigrants.

Ukraine is trying to fend off an almost two-year old Russian invasion of its territory, and Taiwan is under growing threat from China.

Netanyahu won’t resign after war with Hamas

The only two Democrats to defer were John Fetterman of Pennsylvania and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Fetterman “strongly supports a two-state solution in Israel and Palestine, and always has,” his spokesperson told Axios. “He also strongly believes that this resolution should include language stipulating the destruction of Hamas as a precondition to peace.”

Manchin’s statement on the subject seemed to show him to be inclined to the position held by most Israelis today that a Palestinian state with its current leadership is a nonstarter.

“Once a Palestinian government with its peoples’ best interests at heart agrees that Israel should be a state, I will be the first one to sign on to a bipartisan amendment supporting that Israel recognize a Palestinian state,” he wrote.

Amendment initiator Hawaiian Sen. Brian Schatz has made clear that the declarative statement is pushback against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s publicly firm opposition to such a state being formed from the Palestinian Authority (PA), which he restated last week.

“The prime minister’s statements … accelerated our efforts and also turbocharged our efforts,” he told journalists.

“What will determine the future of Israel and Palestine is whether or not there’s hope. And the two-state solution has to be that hope,” he said.

Netanyahu has based his opposition on the fact that the PA is a terror supporter itself with its “pay for slay” policy, whose leadership has not even condemned the Hamas massacre of 1,200 people on October 7, 2023, which sparked the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip.

Schatz did add that he would not oppose the aid bill if the amendment doesn’t get to the Senate floor for a vote.

My takeaway from the shocking audio tape of AZ GOP Chair Jeff DeWit trying to bribe Kari Lake out of the Senate race, is what about Republicans actually serving. How are they compromised, strong armed etc….?

The chairman said he was ’set up’ by Ms. Lake’s team. Ms. Lake’s campaign denies his claims.

Arizona GOP Chairman Resigns Amid Kari Lake Bribery Allegations

By Jack Phillips, The Epoch Times, January 25, 2024:

The chairman of the Arizona Republican Party said he resigned from his role on Jan. 23 after a recording of him was leaked that apparently showed him offering U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake money to stay out of that race.

In his resignation statement, Jeff DeWit suggested that Ms. Lake’s team allegedly secretly recorded their conversation before leaking it to the media. He also accused her team of threatening to release more recordings, which he described as being taken out of context, although he provided few details.

“I said things I regret, but I realize when hearing Lake’s recording that I was set up,” Mr. DeWit said in a statement. “I believe she orchestrated this entire situation to have control over the state party and it is obvious from the recording that she crafted her performance responses with the knowledge that she was recording it, intending to use this recording later to portray herself as a hero.”

He said the recording and release of the audio was tantamount to a “deceptive tactic” and said it was a “selectively edited audio recording.”

“This is all such a distraction to that mission that I am doing as Ms. Lake wishes and am stepping down as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party,” he said.

Going further, Mr. DeWit said his relationship with Ms. Lake was “based on friendship” and the “conversation that is now being scrutinized was an open, unguarded exchange between friends in the living room of her house,” according to the statement.

“I genuinely believed I was offering a helpful perspective to someone I considered a friend,” he said.

“I received an ultimatum from Lake’s team: resign today or face the release of a new, more damaging recording. I am truly unsure of its contents, but considering our numerous past open conversations as friends, I have decided not to take the risk.”

A spokesperson for the Lake campaign released a statement on Jan. 23 saying the “tape speaks for itself” and noted that Ms. Lake “rejected DeWit’s multiple attempts to offer her money and corporate board seats in exchange for Kari not running for public office.”

“I am an Arab Jew. My family lived in Israel, the land of the Jews, since before any Ashkenazi Jew laid a foot on it. My family moved from Lebanon because the Arab Muslims made our lives hell and would frequently attack and kill us in the village nevertheless one by one.

They had lived in Lebanon for almost 300 years and before that, they lived in southern Iraq… for over 1300 years. That’s right, since before Islam even existed. We have been there since the time of the elder religions. You know, the ones that were all over the region from Persia to Iraq and Syria and all the way down to Yemen and even North Africa. Like the Zoroastrians.

The Arab Jews didn’t get turned by the Ashkenazi. They got turned by the constant bloody pogroms the Arab Muslims would inflict on Arab Jews every single decade… for 1300 fucking years.

They murdered so many of our people, tortured them, and burned them… pretty much Oct 7 twice per generation, for 1300 years. And when we had the opportunity and just didn’t want to be completely wiped out like a dozen other entire populations, the Muslims genocided or forced to convert, we fled. And we fled and fled and fled until we realized we could find a safe haven in the land that 2000 years was ours to start with before any of the Muslims ever existed.

My family arrived during the Ottoman Empire and we lived in somewhat subjugation but still were left in peace. We built new villages and towns around our ancestral temple in Jerusalem. We started to buy swathes of land up and down the country.

Then, one day, Muslims best and closest friends in Germany, the Nazis, decided to come on over and teach them all-new ways to kill us. And they wanted no time trying out their new death tricks. Then Mufti went over to have lunch with Hitler and boom… we were fucked and he killed 6 million of us across Europe.

When those who survived came over because they’d heard the British were giving the land they now ruled to the Jews, the Arab Muslims were not happy. Why? Because as they did for 1300 years before, they wanted it all and wanted us dead. So they attacked in pogroms for 20 years until we finally had enough and fought back, even against the British who let them kill us.

And finally, in 1948, we declared independence, and Muslims declared genocidal war on us, after just one damned day. Just before that war of 48, Muslim armies demanded all the Arabs on the land to leave so that they could kill every single Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jew alike. The majority of Muslims left Israel so we could be killed, and we ended up kicking their asses and winning the war. The Nakba wasn’t their Nakba. It was ours. They betrayed us, not the other way around. My family was there when they did it.

And then for the last 76 years, Muslims have been crying that they want the land back. Well, erm, NO!!! It’s not their land, and it never was. Muslims were all stuck in a cage in Gaza but Israel didn’t control Gaza then. Egypt did. And Muslims know what? They didn’t complain once. Then they attacked us in 1967 to slaughter us all, again, and we won, again. But this time we conquered Gaza and what’s now the West Bank.”

The Los Angeles Times has slashed over a fifth of its workforce – one of the worst days in the paper’s 142-year history – as it faces $40million in revenue losses.

The paper’s owner, biotech billionaire Dr Patrick Soon-Shiong, said the loss of 115 workers was necessary as the business is losing $30million to $40million per year.

Major News Outlets Continue Losing Millions Amid Anti-Trump Coverage

By: Jon Dougherty, ,Conservative Brief, January 20, 2024:

Several major newspapers and media outlets have continued losing tens of millions of dollars per year after they were purchased by billionaires who initially believed they could turn things around financially while still maintaining a decidedly anti-Trump, anti-GOP editorial slant.

According to a report in DNYUZ, outlets like the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and Time magazine are still losing millions of dollars years after being sold to billionaire benefactors, and there appears to be no sign of their financial conditions improving on the horizon.

“As the prospects for news publishers waned in the last decade, billionaires swooped in to buy some of the country’s most fabled brands. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, bought The Washington Post in 2013 for about $250 million,” DNYUZ reported. “Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, a biotechnology and start-up billionaire, purchased The Los Angeles Times in 2018 for $500 million. Marc Benioff, the founder of the software giant Salesforce, purchased Time magazine with his wife, Lynne, for $190 million in 2018.”

On each occasion, the newsrooms welcomed their new owners with guarded optimism, hoping that their business expertise and technological knowledge would provide solutions to the challenging puzzle of generating revenue as a digital publication, the report said.

However, it appears that the billionaires are facing challenges similar to almost everyone else. According to individuals familiar with the companies’ financial situations, Time, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times all reported significant losses last year, despite substantial investments from their owners and concerted efforts to establish new sources of revenue.

“Wealth doesn’t insulate an owner from the serious challenges plaguing many media companies, and it turns out being a billionaire isn’t a predictor for solving those problems,” Ann Marie Lipinski, the curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, told DNYUZ. “We’ve seen a lot of naïve hope attached to these owners, often from employees.”

How Much Money Would You Have To Earn To Get All The Benefits of Being an Illegal?

Wed, 01/24/2024 - 14:56

Illegal invaders receive cash, free housing, free food, free phones, free healthcare, free tuition. What is the equivalent of what you have to earn to for that bounty? $300,000.

“[Illegals] are told they have a court date in eight or nine years. You’ll get free housing, you’ll get you free everything… Why won’t you come there? Why wouldn’t you come? In fact the New York Times, to their credit, and I’m no fan of The New York Times given their viewpoint, but to the credit of the New York Times they did a study to try to figure out how much money you’d have to make to get all the benefits of being an illegal.  $300,000  By the time you add up for family of four – the the food that you get, the phones that you get,  the cash that you get, the housing that you get  -$300,000 And what does this mean for Americans? How about that? We’re paying for it.”

Who earns that kind of money, anyway?

‘HOPEFUL MIGRANTS’: Illegal Alien Mobs in Chicago Arrested for Mass Looting

The Democrat illegal alien invasion designed to destroy this country is the very definition of treason, insurrection.

‘Hopeful Migrants’ in Chicago Arrested for Mass Looting

By: Jazz Shaw, January 22, 2024

We’ve been seeing plenty of headlines related to Chicago and illegal migrants recently, particularly now that a brutal winter season has set in. Many of these stories deal with Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson complaining about the Governor of Texas or demanding more resources for the migrants from Washington. The liberal defenders of the new arrivals fret over the cold conditions these people are facing and talk about how they came here “seeking a new life” and they “just want to work.” That may be true of some of them, but certainly not all. And they’re not simply staying in the city. An increasing number of them have been heading out to the suburbs and engaging in the new fashionable trend of mass looting and retail theft that’s been sweeping the nation. And local law enforcement officials have their hands full. (Fox News)

Chicago suburb has been battered by a string of recent crimes committed by migrants who live in or near the Windy City.

From Oct. 23 to Jan. 17, a total of 47 migrants were arrested in Oak Brook, Illinois, mostly for alleged property crimes, according to Brian Strockis, the chief of police for the Oak Brook Police Department.

Most of the migrants who were arrested were charged with retail theft and burglary, Strockis told Fox News Digital.

As you can see, a lot of this activity has been taking place in Oak Brook, Illinois, where 47 migrants have been arrested in just a couple of months on various charges of theft and burglary. That may not sound like a big number, but Oak Brook barely qualifies as a suburb. It’s a village with a population of barely 8,000. That’s a lot of theft for a village of that size.

One criminal in particular keeps showing up in the local headlines. 32-year-old Jaime Ubaldo Obando-Andrade is an Ecuadorian migrant who seems to have a very different version of the American dream in mind. He walked into the local Macy’s and put on a coat costing nearly 400 dollars, walking out without paying for it. When the police tracked him down and searched his car they found roughly $3,000 in additional stolen merchandise and an ankle monitor that he reportedly cut off. They also found a fake Washington state ID with his picture on it but a different name.

Then there was the story of two Venezuelan migrants – 28-year-old Luis Mendez-Gomez and 23-year-old Frank Montez-Davila – who seemed similarly ambitious. They were arrested for cleaning out the same Macy’s store of roughly $3,000 in high-end cosmetics. It seems unlikely that these young men use that much makeup, so the goods were clearly destined for the black market. That Macy’s store is a popular target because it was similarly hit by another pair of Venezuelan migrants during the same month. They were arrested and released with ankle monitors, for all that good that’s likely to do.

The point is that the liberal PR campaign in support of this army of migrants is highly deceptive in many ways. Certainly, some of them came here with good intentions. But many of them are in no way the huddled masses yearning to breathe free that the Democrats describe. They must pay attention to the headlines in America’s media. They’ve not only heard about all of the “free stuff” that Joe Biden is giving away but also the ease with which people can simply go into the looting and black market business and clean up. Some are even worse. A Maryland mother is suing the Biden administration because her 20-year-old autistic daughter was raped and murdered by an illegal migrant. The killer was on a list of known criminals and gang members in El Salvador. He even had MS-13 gang tattoos that could have been found if anyone had bothered to lift up his shirt. But he was allowed to roam free until he brutally destroyed this family.

DEI (DIE) the Virgin Skies: ‘Um… Why Is Our Plane’s Wing Missing All Those Screws?’

You can deny reality but you cannot avoid the consequences of denying reality. (Ayn Rand)

Another one of these disconcerting stories has cropped up suggesting that we may have a wider problem than previously suspected. It’s not nearly as bad as the door plug blowing out of a Boeing 737 Max over Portland, but it’s still troubling. Back on January 15, a passenger at Manchester Airport in the UK was awaiting takeoff on a flight to New York City when he noticed something unusual out the window. He was seated near the wing of the aircraft and he saw that one panel on the wing had a number of screws missing. Somewhat alarmed, he called it to the attention of a flight steward. A maintenance worker was summoned and the flight was delayed while they attended to the missing hardware on the wing. (NY Post)

Ballots Cast Without Proof Of Citizenship ‘Exploded’ After Lawfare Crippled Arizona Election Laws

By: M.D. Kittle, The Federalist, January 23, 2024:

About 1,700 people in Arizona voted in 2018 with a federal-only ballot. Two years later, the number grew to 11,600 individuals.

After Arizona officials signed a consent decree agreeing to let voters who failed to provide proof of U.S. citizenship on their state voter application forms vote in federal elections anyway, Arizona saw an “explosion” of voters casting federal-only ballots. The soaring numbers coincide with millions of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States.
Lawsuit, Consent Decree Cripple Arizona Election Integrity Laws

Twenty years ago, Arizona voters approved Proposition 200, also known as the “Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act.” At its core, the election integrity initiative required proof of U.S. citizenship to vote and photo identification at polling places. Prop 200 has come under constant assault from leftists fighting against the Arizona Constitution’s key qualification to vote in elections: U.S. citizenship.

The challenge went all the way to U.S. Supreme Court, where in 2013 the justices ruled 7-2 that states could not add documentary proof of citizenship requirements to federal election registration forms. States must “accept and use” the standardized federal voter registration form for national elections under the 1993 National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA form, developed by the federal Election Assistance Commission, does not require proof of citizenship. It only asks that an applicant “aver, under penalty of perjury, that he is a citizen.”

[READ NEXT: Elon Musk Rightly Says Arizona Doesn’t Verify Federal Voter Citizenship — But The Feds Don’t Let Them]

But the opinion, authored by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, opened the door for states to vet voters. Scalia wrote that states “retain the flexibility to design and use their own registration forms.”

In response, Arizona accepted federal voter registration applications without citizenship documentation, but continued to require proof of citizenship on state forms. Federal registrants were designated as “Federal Only Voters,” eligible to vote for president and congressional contestants but not for state and local candidates.
