Watch: ‘Rich Men North of Richmond’ Singer Oliver Anthony Entertained By Scottish Fans’ Anti-Biden Chant

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/10/2024 - 16:15

From William Wallace to the 18th-century Jacobites, Scotland has a long tradition of rebellion against tyrants.

Small wonder, therefore, that some Scottish concertgoers should despise an establishment tool and wannabe dictator like President Joe Biden.

In a 40-second clip posted Thursday to the social media platform X, the audience at an Oliver Anthony concert in Glasgow, Scotland, broke into an anti-Biden chant that left the “Rich Men North of Richmond” singer laughing.

“I think y’all just wrote my next song,” Anthony said to raucous cheers.

The chant itself might leave some readers feeling mildly uncomfortable. But others will find it hilarious.

Timing each syllable to the bass rhythm of the popular stadium song “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes, Anthony’s audience chanted the following:

“Joooooe Bi-den’s a pae-do! Joooooe Bi-den’s a pae-do!”

A paedo — also spelled “pedo” — refers to a pedophile.

No one, of course, should accuse Biden of feeling sexual attraction toward minors — let alone acting on it — without evidence.

Nonetheless, even Scottish concertgoers must have seen in Biden certain qualities that might bring unease to parents of young children. And the concertgoers evidently found those qualities worthy of amplified mockery.

For instance, without making the darkest possible accusations, one can see how they got the idea. After all, Biden’s history of creepy behavior toward younger girls, including documented hair-sniffing incidents, might give rise to such chants.

Meanwhile, Anthony shook his fist in approval, as if urging the crowd to continue the chant.

Readers might recall Anthony — whose real name is Christopher Anthony Lunsford — as the former factory worker who, last August, rocketed to overnight superstardom with the viral, blue-collar anthem “Rich Men North of Richmond.” The song’s title referred to politicians in Washington, D.C.

With a formidable combination of desperate anguish and righteous anger that resonated with viewers and listeners across the world, Anthony charged U.S. political leaders with ignoring the plight of the nation’s working class.

As of Friday — nearly six months to the day since its debut — the YouTube video for “Rich Men North of Richmond had more than 117 million views.

WARNING: The following video contains language that some viewers may find offensive.

Since August, Anthony has endeared himself to Christians by opening his shows by reading passages from the Bible. His video for the follow-up song “I Want to Go Home” also concluded with a Bible verse. The overnight sensation even took his Christian message to Joe Rogan’s podcast.

On the political front, Anthony initially raised eyebrows by slamming Republicans for using his hit song at one of their presidential debates. Since then, however, he has made it clear that he has no use for any corporate-owned politicians, including Biden. His reaction to the Scottish fans’ chant certainly left no doubt about that.

Judging by his songs, in fact, Anthony despises anyone who amasses ill-gotten wealth and then abuses power.

Come to think of it, the singer looks and talks like the sort of man who, centuries ago, might have painted his face blue and white before charging the English army.

SIGN OF THE TIMES: British Labor Party Scraps $35 Billion Yearly ‘Green Industries’ Spending Pledge in Major Policy Turnaround

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/10/2024 - 16:00
Labour leader, Sir Keir Stammer.

While all over Europe, opinion polls indicate that conservative and populist parties are set to make big electoral gains in the upcoming European Elections, in the UK, on the other hand, the leftist Labour Party has a big lead over the Conservative Government led by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

But not even Labour can escape the reality. The party has sought to portray itself as the party of fiscal responsibility in a bid to rebuild confidence to run the economy once again.

And so, climate alarmist policies are beginning to fall by the roadside as Sir Keir Stammer and his team try to steer the ship towards a national electoral victory, the first since 2010.

Reuters reported:

“Britain’s opposition Labour Party said it would scrap a target to eventually spend 28 billion pounds ($35.3 billion) a year on green industries if it takes power, one of the biggest U-turns yet under party leader Keir Starmer.”

Labour had vowed to invest heavily in green technologies and jobs to get Britain out of a prolonged period of economic stagnation.

Tories have criticized the plan, saying that it could lead to higher borrowing costs and tax rises for the public.

Starmer said the worsened economic outlook and high borrowing costs meant that Labour would ditch the main spending target, though it would maintain a range of the policies, such as the creation of a publicly-owned green power company, which he said were fully funded.

‘(But) we won’t make further, or new, investment decisions. And that means that we won’t reach the 28 billion pounds envisaged, and that figure is effectively stood down’, he told broadcasters.

‘The reason for that is because since we announced the 28 billion, the Tories (Conservative Party) have done terrible damage to our economy… I have to anticipate the circumstances as they are now, not as I’d wish them to be’.”

Stammer now plans to spend less than 5 billion pounds a year on green projects. Plans to invest in home insulation were also scaled back.

“Starmer criticised the Conservatives, who he said planned to ‘max out the government’s credit card’, in reference to their aspiration for pre-election tax cuts.”

Keir Starmer confirms he doesn’t have a plan for Britain.

His pledge has a £28bn price tag and now he’s admitted there’s no plan to pay for it, which means going back to square one with higher taxes for working people.

That’s why we need to stick with our plan that’s working.

— Rishi Sunak (@RishiSunak) February 8, 2024

Charles Moore wrote an insightful opinion piece on The Telegraph, in which we find these excerpts:

“After a tussle with their consciences, Sir Keir and Rachel Reeves, who, in 2021, declared at the party conference that she would be Britain’s ‘first green chancellor’, announced on Thursday that her exciting green investment plan, unveiled in that same speech, will, sort of, not happen. Under that plan, a Labour government would have spent an extra £28 billion every year until 2030, including ‘borrowing to invest’.

As late as Tuesday, Sir Keir was still clinging publicly to the £28 billion figure. He said he was “unwavering”. But on Thursday he waveringly tried to defuse his own tax bombshell. He had decided, though of course he did not put it like this, that voters care more that Labour should be safe with the economy than it should save the planet.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s and his hated Ulez (Ultra Low Emitting Zone) is also working its negative magic. Voters are feeling the pain of green policies, not the gain.

“It follows that looking green is no longer a clear electoral plus. The Tories saw this slightly earlier than Labour last year. They stole a march by lessening the net-zero torture, extending the lives of the internal combustion engine and gas boilers. Probably Rishi Sunak intended no revolution of policy, only its softening, but the effect is marked. Once people realize you can have prosperity or an energy system dominated by renewables, but not both, they will choose prosperity. That realization has big political consequences. I believe it makes net zero by 2050 unachievable. 

[…] Business wants green energy only if it is “de-risked” – in other words, if it is subsidized for the life of the asset. It is supposed to be “sustainable”, yet often only taxpayers’ money can sustain it. In short, it is unprofitable. And now, thanks to Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act (a title as good as The Ministry of Truth in Orwell’s 1984), businesses will try to extort higher subsidy here and buzz off to America if they cannot get it.

[…] The other thought – and this is addressed especially to Sir Keir and his party – is “What about the workers?”. Labour, as its name suggests, was founded for the political representation of those who work. The whole climate-change caravanserai of international panels and world leaders gathering at summits to issue edicts and rebukes could have been expressly designed to exclude the wishes of the workers from their considerations.”

Stephen Miller Goes Off: “Joe Biden Belongs in Prison” (Video)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/10/2024 - 15:45
Stephen Miller joins Jesse Watters

Former Trump Chief Advisor Stephen Miller joined Jesse Watters Thursday night and absolutely destroyed the DOJ’s handling of Biden’s document scandal.

On Thursday, Special Counsel Robert Hur released a 345-page report on Biden’s stolen classified documents investigation showing that Joe Biden STOLE SCIF-designated classified documents and improperly stored them at the Penn Biden Center, his Delaware garage, his Virginia home, and his lawyer’s Boston office.

Hur found that Biden “willfully retained” classified information; however, he decided not to charge him.

According to Hur, in 2017,  Biden even read aloud classified passages about meetings in the Situation Room to his ghostwriter.

But, in a two-tiered system of justice in the United States, Biden will not face charges.

Jesse Watters:  This is the President of the United States garage, Stephen Miller. This is where he was keeping information about U. S. Weapons capabilities, foreign intelligence, military secrets. There it is next to a lamp with duct tape wrapped around it and a shoebox. The FBI said that box was so dilapidated and crumbled that they couldn’t even pick it up. They had to take the classified documents and put it in another box. Now this is a garage that Hunter’s in and out of with Jackie Bao, who’s tied to Chinese intelligence. This is where the garage doors open. They’re going on a joyride in the corvette.

Now, you take this and look at Donald Trump, where his documents were. They were locked up in a secure facility.

Boxes had tops on them, guarded by Secret Service on an estate on an island. Now, the media went crazy when those images came out. How can you continue to go forward with this document prosecution on the Trump side after what we’ve witnessed here with this off-ramp that the special counsel has given Joe Biden, who had a garage that looked like my great-grandfather’s, after a rummage sale?

Stephen Miller: Well, yes, let’s be very clear that the Department of Justice, the report they wrote was a attempt to get Joe Biden completely scot-free off of the documents case while they are persecuting Donald Trump.

Those pictures you showed are the least secure handling and storing of classified information I’ve ever seen in my life.

Donald Trump stored the records based on consultation with the Department of Justice and the National Archives, records that he, as President, has the absolute right to maintain, to control, to declassify. That is an unmitigated right of the President of the United States. Joe Biden had no such right. Joe Biden was Vice-President, not President.

He was Senator, not President, when he stole these records, when he purloined these records. And yet he is not being prosecuted. And we know why he’s not being prosecuted. Because this system is rigged, Jesse. It’s rigged in the same way that black lives matter can torch buildings and kill people and ruin lives. But pro-life protesters, they get thrown in the slammer. It’s rigged because if you are on the right team, if you’re on the Democrat team, you can commit any crime and you will be shielded. And if you’re on the wrong team, you’re the Republican team, and certainly for Donald Trump, no matter how innocent you are, you will be railroaded.

Joe Biden belongs in prison. He willfully retained and disclosed classified information, and he has absolutely no right to retain those records because he was not the President of the United States.

Watters: And he’s lying right to the American people about disclosing classified information. The report says he shared classified information with his ghost writer for the book. And then we was asked about it. He said it wasn’t true and told some crazy story about Afghanistan. And now knowing this whole time, he’s been sitting on this dusty, disheveled box of classified documents in his garage and all over Chinatown and Penn Biden center, he was green-lighting his Justice Department to go raid Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Think about how diabolical that is.

Miller: Well, because we don’t live in a free country anymore. We don’t live in a democracy anymore. We live in a country where there’s a ruling party, a ruling regime, ruling power centers, and they decide who goes to jail and who is innocent.

Look, Hunter Biden had unfettered access to these documents in this area. A drug addict had unfettered access. This is the same time as the Biden family is making millions and millions of dollars in shady foreign dealings. How easy would it have been for any number of foreign governments to obtain access to this garage? How often was the garage open? How often were these facilities unsecured? This is a complete and total violation of our nation’s most essential secrets.

But at the end of the day, this is the same government that has a wide open border and trafficks in children is the same government that censors our speech illegally. It’s the same government that allows people to vote without any verification. And it’s the same government trying to throw Donald Trump in jail because he’s the leader of the opposition party. They don’t care about the rules. They care about power. Jesse.

Watters: Yeah, you got a wide open garage and border. It looks like a mess on both fronts. Steven, thank you so much.

Dem Calls for 25th Amendment Against Trump Come Back To Haunt

Thursday’s news crescendo ending in a calamitous presidential press conference carried hidden lessons for both parties: Be careful what you wish on your political enemies. It could monumentally backfire.

The Democrats’ continuous calls during his four years in office to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office on the presumed grounds of mental instability took a disastrous turn this week, as the effort self-combusted in a Hindenburg-sized blowback.

In October 2020, before Joe Biden was elected president and three months before Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a press conference. She was touting a bill to create a bipartisan commission that could determine a sitting president’s ability to carry out the duties of the office.

The original bill’s author was Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat and former constitutional lawyer who would go on to lead the second Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump. In Pelosi’s eerily portentous remarks, she said the measure wasn’t explicitly aimed at Trump, but his mental health “reminded” Democrats of why such a commission was needed.

“This is not about President Trump. He will face the judgment of the voters, but he knows the need for us to create a process for future presidents,” she said. “This legislation applies to future presidents, but we are reminded of the necessity of action by the health of the current president.”

The measure would have augmented the 25th Amendment, which provides procedures for transferring power to the vice president in case of the president’s death, incapacitation, removal, or resignation. It would set up a commission of 16 members chosen by Democrats and Republicans, who are medical experts or former high-ranking executive branch officials such as former members of a president’s Cabinet. The commission’s members would then select a 17th member, who would serve as chairperson.

Pelosi and many Democrats regularly raised the issue of the 25th Amendment during Trump’s tenure as president, more as a way to question his judgment and mental acuity amid the 45th U.S. president’s furious Twitter rants and frequent acts of retribution and name-calling.

Many Democrats have long questioned whether Trump suffers from cognitive decline, and recently, the former president provided more fodder by confusing Nikki Haley with Pelosi herself in accusing the former ambassador to the United Nations of being responsible for security at the Capitol during the pro-Trump riots.

But the Democratic digs at Trump’s mental health were far trickier after the party’s leaders coalesced around Joe Biden as the Democratic 2020 presidential nominee and suddenly were forced to fend off far worse public perceptions of Biden. Once elected, his stairway falls, mangled words, and misidentified world leaders made the task all the more difficult.

Now the tables have decisively turned. Republicans are now beating the drum for invoking the 25thAmendment after Special Counsel Robert Hur released a damning report. The findings accused Biden of “willfully” keeping classified documents in his Delaware home but declined to charge the president because his deteriorated mental state made him impossible to prosecute. Jurors would view him only as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur asserted in his report.

Legal experts and hardline Republicans erupted with calls for Biden’s removal from office, citing Hur’s claims that Biden struggled to remember events such as when his term began and ended as vice president and when, within several years, his son Beau died.

“The Special Counsel’s report exposing that Joe Biden’s mental decline is so severe that he can not stand trial means he is unfit for office,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, posted on X.com. “We must demand either the 25th amendment be invoked or impeachment.”

Several other members of the House Freedom Caucus, a conservative group that helped remove House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in December, quickly amplified the calls. Rep. Mary Miller, an Indiana Republican, painted a dire situation, deeming Biden’s removal from office a matter of national security.

“For the safety of our nation, Joe Biden must resign,” Miller wrote. “He could not remember basic facts about his life. He is not competent to remain as Commander-in-Chief & every day that he remains, he puts America at risk.”

Speaker Mike Johnson and the entire House GOP leadership also waded in, issuing a joint statement that concluded: “A man too incapable of being held accountable for mishandling classified information is certainly unfit for the Oval Office.”

Johnson then doubled down after Biden decided to take the questions head-on at a hastily assembled press conference in which he angrily sparred with reporters questioning his mental abilities and mistakenly called Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi the “president of Mexico.”

“The President’s press conference this evening further confirmed on live television what the Special Counsel outlined,” the Speaker said on X. “He is not fit to be President.” Two conservative GOP senators, Mike Lee of Utah and Rick Scott of Florida, joined the chorus. “It’s time for his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Scott tweeted.

Scott acknowledged just how unlikely such an outcome would be, considering the rules for removing a president outlined in the constitutional amendment and the politics of doing so in an election year. A president can only be removed if he agrees to resign or if the vice president and a majority of presidential Cabinet members agree that he must leave office. And that’s just the first step.

Under such a scenario, the president can still resist and insist he’s competent to lead the nation. If the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet still disagree, they must wait four days before the 25thAmendment faces further nearly insurmountable hurdles. Successfully removing a president requires the support of two-thirds of the House and the Senate.

Why does the process give the president so much control over his ability to remain in office? The 25thAmendment’s authors crafted the process to maintain the power of the presidency and to prevent partisan political forces from manipulating it as an end-run around impeachment.

“It reflects a preference for giving the president the ability to be the main decision-maker here,” explained Brian Kalt, a professor of Michigan State University College of Law and the author of “Unable: The Law, Politics, and Limits of Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment.”

“Not only do you need the president’s own party to vote in significant numbers against him in the House and Senate, you need his own team, basically to say, ‘Look, this is not okay,’” Kalt told RealClearPolitics. “It’s supposed to be hard. It’s supposed to be for extreme situations.”

The 25th Amendment was ratified and approved after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as a more explicit mechanism for transferring power from the president. It had previously been understood that the vice president could step in if the president was disabled, but until that time, the Constitution didn’t provide the requisite standards or procedures.

“So, we never used it, even when presidents were clearly incapacitated,” Kalt said.

Several times before Kennedy’s assassination, the country’s continuity of government was endangered when presidents became incapacitated. President Garfield was incoherent for two and a half months after he was shot in 1881 before he eventually died. Vice President Chester Arthur didn’t take over despite Garfield’s inability to perform his official duties.

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke that severely affected his physical and mental health for the remainder of his term. But he refused to resign, and Vice President Thomas Marshall declined to serve as acting president.

During President Dwight Eisenhower’s years in office, he suffered a heart attack and underwent surgery for Crohn’s disease. Eisenhower wrote a confidential letter to his vice president, Richard Nixon, naming him responsible for determining whether he could perform his presidential duties. The letter’s legal authority was never adjudicated, and in any event, Nixon took over the duties of president only for a few hours two times, in 1955 after Eisenhower’s heart attack and again during the president’s 1956 surgery.

“It’s not supposed to be another way for the president’s opponents to get rid of him,” Kalt said. “We really do stack the deck in favor of the president but in a way that allows power to transfer when it’s an undeniable case.”

After Hur released his devastating report Thursday, Biden’s personal and White House lawyers showed no willingness to concede that Biden’s mental capacity is in any way diminished. The vast majority of Americans do not seem to agree. Even before the special counsel’s conclusions, a January NBC News poll found that 76% of voters have major or moderate concerns about Biden’s cognitive and physical health.

In reacting to Hur’s report, Biden’s lawyers strongly objected to its characterizations and accused the special counsel of engaging in partisan politics. Bob Bauer, Biden’s personal attorney, who previously served as the general counsel to the Democratic National Committee and President Obama’s presidential campaign, accused Hur of “trashing” Biden.

“The special counsel could not refrain from investigative excess, perhaps unsurprisingly given the intense pressures of the current political environment,” he said in a statement. “Whatever the impact of those pressures on the final report, it flouts department regulations and norms.”

But other prominent legal analysts argued that Hur’s decision not to hold Biden responsible for years of violating the Presidential Records Act was far too lenient. Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law professor at George Washington University, said the depiction of Biden as too feeble to stand trial reminded him of the defense of mob leader Vincent Gigante, who often showed up in court in robes and pajamas. His lawyers successfully delayed his prosecution for years through arguments that he was mentally unfit to stand trial. Gigante was eventually convicted and sentenced to 12 years.

“Here the special counsel is saying, ‘You know what? It’s just going to break the jury’s heart to see an elderly man with such a faulty memory and diminished faculties being charged,’” Turley said on Fox News after the report’s release. “There’s going to be a lot of questions about that.”

When it comes to Trump, Turley argued, it seems prosecutors “hit him with any possible crimes stretching every possible definition.” But when they’re dealing with figures like President Biden, they are “far more cautious and resistant to charges,” he added.

Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy, a conservative commentator and regular contributor to Fox News, said the report’s conclusions about Biden’s mental health are far more damning than the determination that Biden willfully stored classified documents in his Delaware home.

“Well, my first impression was that this is supposed to be about whether there’s enough evidence to indict, and as you read the report, I can’t help but say it sure looks like there’s enough here to invoke the 25th Amendment,” McCarthy said on Fox News. “And I know that’s not what he’s looking at, what his purpose is, but [Biden’s] fitness for office is a major issue here.”

The White House and Democrats on Thursday immediately pushed back at the report’s conclusions about the president’s mental fitness even as other Democratic members privately acknowledged the grim political reality – that the report confirmed what many Americans had suspected for months, making it far more difficult for Biden to remain the nominee in November.

Before the report was released, top White House aides were already struggling to defend Biden’s decision to skip the traditional pre-Superbowl presidential interview and explain away his gaffes from earlier this week. Biden, during a fundraiser, wrongly identified dead European leaders as having expressed concern to him about the events of the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The politics of the situation are daunting for both major political parties. It seems increasingly clear that the Republicans are stuck with Donald Trump as their nominee whether they like it or not – and most rank-and-file voters seem fine with it even though Trump doesn’t poll as well against Biden as challenger Nikki Haley. On the Democrats’ side, if Vice President Kamala Harris becomes the president under the 25th Amendment, she would choose her own running mate. Under such a scenario, it would be far more difficult for the party to dump Harris, who is even less popular than the president, as the presumptive nominee during the remaining primaries or at the convention. There has been talk of Biden trying to replace Harris as his No. 2 since early last year. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed Biden in February, but equivocated when it came to whether or not he should boot Harris from the ticket.

“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” said Warren, who shortly afterward tried to undo the damage by issuing a statement “fully” supporting the reelection of Biden and Harris “together.”

That hasn’t stopped the speculation about other would-be presidential contenders. There are plenty of Biden alternatives already waiting in the wings, including such possibilities as former first lady Michelle Obama, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

“Republicans should be careful what they wish for when talking about the 25th Amendment,” Kalt warned. “It could mean they won’t have Biden to run against in November.”

Horrifying Mid-Flight Emergency: Passenger Dies After ‘Liters of Blood Comes Out of His Mouth and Nose’

In a chilling incident aboard Lufthansa’s Airbus A380, passengers witnessed an unimaginable horror as a man tragically died mid-flight from Bangkok, Thailand to Munich, Germany.

Swiss couple Martin and Karin Missfelder, who witnessed the event, recounted the traumatic experience to Swiss German news outlet Blick.

Karin Missfelder, a 55-year-old nursing specialist at the University Hospital in Zurich, spotted the ill passenger upon boarding the Airbus A380 for the scheduled 11:40 p.m. departure on Thursday.

Swiss couple Martin and Karin Missfelder/BLICK

She noticed his alarming symptoms, including cold sweats, rapid breathing, and an apathetic demeanor. Although the man was clearly in distress—a condition his Filipina wife linked to the rush to make their flight at Bangkok airport—he was permitted to board.

This decision came after a quick assessment by the pilot and a makeshift examination by a 30-year-old Polish doctor, also a passenger, who gave the green light after a brief evaluation.

However, the situation quickly escalated as the passenger began to spit blood, a dire condition that worsened rapidly, culminating in a horrific scene where “liters of blood” poured from his mouth and nose, according to Martin Missfelder.

“They then gave him a little chamomile tea, but he already spit blood into the bag that his wife held out to him,” Martin Missfelder told Blick.

“He keeps spitting into the bag – and finally a gush of blood comes out of his mouth and nose. “It was absolute horror, everyone was screaming,” says Missfelder. The man lost liters of blood. The walls were also full,” the news outlet reported.

The cabin was thrown into chaos, with passengers screaming and flight attendants scrambling to manage the situation.

Efforts to resuscitate the man were described as amateurish by Karin Missfelder, who lamented the lack of professional medical intervention onboard. Despite these attempts, the man was pronounced dead, leading the aircraft to return to Bangkok.

Martin expressed his frustration with the lack of assistance from both the airline and airport personnel, highlighting the insensitive treatment of the deceased’s wife, who was left to navigate customs procedures on her own.

“Nobody looked after us, we waited two hours. There was no care team there, nobody. We all had to go to a counter, where we received a 10-franc voucher.”

The wife “stood there all alone and apathetic and had to endure all the formalities.”

“The fact that Lufthansa has no measures in this case, that no one cares about around 30 traumatized passengers around, is unacceptable.”

Lufthansa has confirmed the death but has stated “no further details” regarding the incident.

Top Biden Official Panders to US-Arab Leaders in Closed-Door Meeting, Says He Has ‘No Confidence’ in Israeli Government

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/10/2024 - 15:00

Biden official Jon Finer, who serves as Deputy National Security Advisor under National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, recently spoke to a closed-door meeting of US-Arab leaders in Dearborn, Michigan, where he called some Israeli leaders ‘somewhat abhorrent’ and stated he does not have ‘any confidence’ in the current Israeli government.

Pandering to a city with a large Arab-American population, Finer was joined by other Biden administration officials, including ex-UN ambassador Samantha Power.

The New York Times reported that in a recording from the event, Finer told attendees about the Biden administration’s efforts toward Palestinian statehood and would demand all parties compromise.

Finer was quoted as saying, “We will have to do things for Saudi Arabia that will be very unpopular in this country and in our Congress. Will Israel be willing to do the hard thing that’s going to be required of them, which is meaningful steps for the Palestinians on the question of two states? I don’t know if the answer to that is yes. I do not have any confidence in this current government of Israel.”

Finer also called unnamed Israeli officials “abhorrent.” He added that the administration should have taken a stronger stand against those who compared “residents of Gaza to animals.”

While Finer did not specify who he was referring to,  Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant was quoted in the early days of the war as saying, “We are fighting human animals and we are acting accordingly.” Gallant’s remarks came after the slaughter of civilians, the murder of children, and the use of rape as a tool of war by Hamas terrorists.

Finer’s efforts seem to suggest concern over dwindling support for Biden’s re-election bid in the state.

The New York Post reports:

Meeting attendees told the New York Times that they were disappointed that the Biden officials would not commit to policy changes.

Some of the attendees had previously refused to meet with Biden’s campaign manager as part of a listening tour of Muslim and Arab American concerns about the president.

More than 30 Michigan state and local officials have vowed to vote “uncommitted” in the state’s Democratic primary over Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war.

Only 17.4% of Arab American voters said they would vote for Biden in 2024, according to a John Zogby Strategies poll commissioned by the Arab American Institute last October.

In 2020, the same poll measured Arab American support for Biden at 59%.

Initially enlisted in 1969 to play football for the army, Col. Tiso ended up on a bus to the Virginia Military Institute to ultimately get commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1973. He served decades as a soldier and, after mandatory retirement, still chose to serve 11 more years as an intelligence planner and analyst for a defense contractor.

 

He deployed five more times to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. Col. Tiso explains that the Iraqi army was envisioned to be a bulwark against Iran. But its failures in the Battle of Najaf, as well as a pivot in strategy, ended up costing American lives in a war that could have been over by 2005.

Research Paper Warns Biden’s ESG Farming Campaign will Cost Consumers $1,300 More a Year

Think tank concludes his campaign will push up cost of eating

It is estimated that Joe Biden’s “global warming” plans for America’s farm industry will push cheese costs for consumers up 78%.

And beef will go up 70%. And rice 56%. And chicken 39%. And eggs 36%.

“A typical family-of-four would have to spend an extra $1,300 per year to put food on the table,” according to a new report cited by the Daily Mail.

The details come from document from researchers at the Buckey Institute, a free-market think tank based in Ohio.

The group warns that Biden’s agenda includes much higher costs for diesel, propane, fertilizer and more.

The Mail describes the Biden ideas as a “European-style climate policy,” warning, “Farmers will push these costs on to consumers — meaning cheese, beef, and other everyday basics will cost as much as 80 percent more, raising a family-of-four’s annual grocery spend by $1,300.”

The authors of the report, Trevor Lewis and M. Ankith Reddy, noted, “‘Federal policymakers are pursuing expensive climate-control and emissions policies that have largely failed in Europe.”

Activists on the issue of climate change, which was “global warming” until the warming stopped, contend that farming hurts the environment, largely because of pesticides and fertilizers, and the release of methane by livestock.

Their conclusion is that farmers must lower their emissions – or they’ll face “droughts, fires, floods, and other extreme weather events.”

That’s even though those “extreme” weather events haven’t been increasing while the global warming activists say the temperatures are climbing.

The paper points to Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, the Paris Climate Accords, and his propensity for pursuing agendas that are “socially” correct, such as his “environmental, social and governance standards.”

The report noted “climate” policies pushed nitrogen fertilizer, diesel and propane – all needed on farms, up 34%.

To illustrate this, they created a model of a hypothetical corn farm that had to abide by new federal environmental regulations and standards.

“‘Oil and gas producers, chemical companies and the American farm will likely shoulder the heaviest compliance burden,” the study said.

The report warned that would be on top of the double-digit inflation American consumers have faced under Biden’s economic policies, which have surged prices some 17% or more.

“Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller said it the report “confirms pir greatest fears about ESG investing.”

MUST SEE ULTRA MAGA PARTY VIDEO Triggers Adam Kinzinger: RINO Sen. Roger Wicker Votes with Dems on Ukraine Funding – Says He Has No Problem with Nuclear First Strike with Russia

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/10/2024 - 14:30

Uniparty RINO Senator Roger Wicker voted with Democrats this week to give another $60 billion to Ukraine to fund their war with Russia. Wicker also told the media he has no problem with a nuclear first strike against the nuclear giant.

As Marjorie Taylor Greene says, “I certainly am not interested in a nuclear war with Russia. First strike. These people are insane!”

Max Evans made this into his latest video production.

Of course, this was too much for Trump-hating warmonger Adam Kinzinger who attacked Max Evans for questioning nuclear war first strike with Russia.

Kinzinger is always itching for nuclear war.

Oh and wait till you tell Ultra MAGA here that Russia talks about first strike all the time.

But he’d like that cuz…. Biden is president. https://t.co/fMdhsvPATR
