Hundreds of Jewish Americans, on their way to Tuesday’s March for Israel at the National Mall in D.C., were left stranded on the tarmac of a local airport after their bus drivers coordinated a “mass sick out” day to prevent the travelers from attending the rally. Around 300 of the 900 passengers flown in by the Jewish Federation of Detroit were left on tarmac of Dulles International Airport for nearly eleven hours, causing them to miss the entire March for Israel event before being sent back home. When several buses failed to appear upon their 10:30 a.m. landing, many travelers had no way to leave the

They were flying in from Tlaib's area. I wonder if her fingerprints are on the sick out. Note that it was worse than just missing the rally. They ended up being stuck at the airport until well after midnight.

All of the taxi drivers at Washington Dulles are Muslim. The contract for taxi service is owned by an Iranian. I'm sure the bus drivers are Muslim as well.

Number 9, the passengers flew in on chartered flights which bypass TSA security. Dulles airport won’t allow passengers to enter the airport buildings who haven’t previously been cleared by security. If the private transportation arrangement fail to pick up the passengers from those charters flights they are quite literally stranded outside on the tarmac. They couldn’t do anything about their predicament until their planes left to take them home.

There is never an excuse for this kind of behavior. If the drivers had an issue with driving this group of people, then they should have addressed this with their boss and taken their lumps. Under any circumstances, intentionally not doing your job and thus leaving paying customers in difficult position plus making your company look bad in the bargain should mean being fired!

Where are the "civil rights" warriors and Squad members of Congress demanding rights for Jewish Americans? Imagine the outcry and looting that would follow an organized group of bus drivers refusing to transport black people or our resident anti-American Muslims.

Former President Trump leads President Biden in Florida, including among “non-binary” voters, the latest FAU/Mainstream Research poll found. The survey, taken October 27 to November 11, among 946 Florida adults registered to vote, asked all voters, “If the election for President were held today, and the candidates were Joe Biden and Donald Trump, which candidate would you support?” Overall, 49 percent said they would support Trump, and Biden came ten points behind with 39 percent support. Ten percent said “other,” and two percent remain undecided. A closer look at the figures show Trump leading Biden by 23 points among males and coming within striking distance of reaching Biden among female voters

In early November, Kessler died of his wounds following “a physical altercation with counter-protestor(s),” in Los Angeles, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement afterward. “During the altercation, Kessler fell backward and struck his head on the ground.

The Census Bureau is asking Congress for $10 million to figure out how best to promote the fiction that sex is assigned at birth, rather than the scientific fact that it is present at conception. It is part of a new set of questions on sexual orientation and gender identity that the bureau wants to ask residents even as young as 15. This expansion beyond race and ethnicity represents a new foray into sexual identity — one more step in the bureau’s decadeslong degeneration into an agency completely captured by the identity-mongering industry, and which produces the supposedly “victim” categories that the industry requires.

President Joe Biden told reporters in San Francisco Wednesday that he would not impose a deadline on Israel to end its war against Hamas in Gaza, until “Hamas no longer maintains the capacity to murder and abuse and do horrific things to the Israelis.” Hamas attacked Israel on October 7, killing roughly 1,400 people, wounding thousands more, taking some 240 hostages, and committing atrocities that shocked the world. Hamas recently vowed to repeat such attacks in the future until it destroys Israel. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are currently trying to dislodge Hamas from its headquarters at Shifa Hospital, where it has hidden terrorists and weapons, in

The Senate passed a short-term spending bill on Wednesday that will stave off a partial government shutdown for at least another two months. In an 87-11 vote, senators overwhelmingly approved sending the legislation to President Biden’s desk, who is expected to sign the measure into law before Friday’s midnight deadline to keep federal operations going. “I want to thank my colleagues for voting to keep the government open,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters after the vote. The temporary government funding package was opposed by one Democrat, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), and 10 Republicans, Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.),

The Disney Grooming Syndicate’s The Marvels posted the worst first Monday box office in the doomed Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) history. After breaking the record for the worst opening weekend in the history of the 15-year-old MCU, The Marvels earned just $2.4 million on Monday. For context, The Eternals (also bombed) earned just $4.2 million on its first Monday, but that’s much more than The Marvels’ $2.4 million. Weaker titles in the MCU, such as The Incredible Hulk (2008), Ant-Man (2015), and this year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantunobodycares had first Mondays of $6 million, $6.4 million, and $14.2 million respectively.

Israel officials claimed they found “concrete evidence” of Hamas operating a military facility beneath al Shifa hospital during their overnight raid — as the military released photos Wednesday showing a jaw-dropping cache of weapons and combat gear recovered during the search. The IDF carried out a “precise and targeted operation against Hamas” Tuesday night inside the hospital complex, which is housing more than 600 patients, 600 staffers and thousands of refugees displaced by the war. The Israeli military claimed it killed several Hamas gunmen during the raid and recovered a stash of weapons hidden around an MRI lab, including automatic weapons, grenades, ammunition and flak jackets.

Iran claims Hamas did not give advance notice of its Oct. 7 terrorist attacks and will not join the group in its fight against Israel, Reuters reported on Wednesday. Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei told Hamas head Ismail Haniyeh last month that, though Iran would continue to offer moral support, it would not get directly involved in the terror group’s fight against Israel, according to Iranian and Hamas officials who anonymously spoke to Reuters. Khamenei pressured Haniyeh to suppress Palestinian calls for Iran and Hezbollah, one of its proxy terror groups, to fully join the fight.

About 300 million people in the United States would be put at risk of death from exposure to radioactive fallout in the four days following a nuclear attack, according to a new report that models the possible effects of such a grim event. If the US is attacked with nuclear weapons, an adversary would most likely concentrate all fire on the country's intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch facilities. Any retaliatory attack from the US would come from these silos, located in Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming - and taking them out would be an enemy's first priority.

The Biden administration is extending a sanctions waiver that will allow Iran continued access to $10 billion in previously frozen assets, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. The four-month extension will allow Iran continued access to previously frozen $10 billion in electricity revenues for humanitarian aid, according to the AP. Critics of the Biden administration have said that giving Iran to access frozen funds will free up money in Tehran’s money reserves and allow them to carry on sponsoring terrorism. The sanctions waiver will authorize Iraq to continue purchasing electricity services from Iran and give Tehran access to the billions in payments currently stored in the Iraqi banks, according to the AP.

Some may blame video games, others the music. Some may lay the problem at the feet of years of progressive education and politics, while still others point to the prevalence of social media. Some will point out that the nuclear family has been atomized over the ages through sexual liberation, federal intervention, and feminism. Others will look to conservatives who dithered about taxes while the country rotted from the inside. More than likely, it was all of the above that contributed to the chaos that reigns in the United States. To a certain degree, cops have always faced a certain level of animus.

In an exchange that came to light in the “Twitter Files” revelations about media censorship, Crovitz, former publisher of the Wall Street Journal, touted his product, NewsGuard, as a “Vaccine Against Misinformation.” His written pitch highlighted a “separate product” — beyond an extension already on the Microsoft Edge browser — “for internal use by content-moderation teams.” Crovitz promised an out-of-the-box tool that would use artificial intelligence powered by NewsGuard algorithms to rapidly screen content based on hashtags and search terms the company associated with dangerous content.
