An 83-year-old man who never knew his real name after being orphaned in the Holocaust has finally learned his identity and reunited with his family through genealogy mapping. Shalom Koray was just two-years-old when he was left abandoned on the streets of Warsaw, Poland, after his family were killed by the Nazis in 1943. Koray was taken in by Lena Kuchler-Silberman, who gave him the gentile name Piotr Korczak, and hid him from the horrors of the Holocaust. He grew up unaware that he had living relatives - and didn't even know his real age.


How wonderful for him, and for his family to have found relatives! He said, 'Imagine a two-year-old left by himself on the sidewalk during the winter, wearing shorts and doesn't know where to go,' 'I was born into this reality and never knew anything else. I didn't even know the concept of parents. I didn't know there was such a thing.'

On Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that the problems on the border are not due to President Joe Biden reversing several Trump-era policies, cited Republicans who saw the Senate border bill as Democrats “moving in a tough, strong direction” on the issue, and stated that by opposing the Senate bill, Trump said, “hold it out for political advantage and let this so-called crisis fester for another year.”[Snip] The plan was so tough that it was supported by The Wall Street Journal editorial page, the fount of hard-right conservatism in America.[Snip]“Can you imagine the nerve, the chutzpah of this guy?

President Biden has been known to tell some pretty outrageous lies throughout his political career. So, it came as no surprise when Ol’ Sleepy Joe spewed out more than a few whoppers during his State of the Union address on Thursday. From foreign policy to the economy, there was almost no subject in which the president didn’t lie to the American people. In case you missed his dumpster fire speech, here’s the definitive list of Biden’s biggest SOTU falsehoods.

"How did things ever get so far?" asked Don Corleone of the "Five Families" as he tried to understand how camaraderie among the leaders of the New York mafia had devolved into open warfare.  "I don't know. It was so unfortunate, so unnecessary." If the Ghost of Ronald Reagan were with us now, he'd be asking the same question.  No conversation about politics today can escape touching on our polarized and toxic society[Snip] It does make you long for the good old days when every liberal and virtually the entire GOP establishment in Washington, DC hated Ronald Reagan.

Veteran investigative journalist Catherine Herridge, whom CBS News laid off last week, shared a statement on Friday that appeared to confirm that the network had seized notes from her office after she had been let go in an unusual and heavy-handed manner that called into question the network’s motives. Herridge, who reported on the Justice Department and other national security matters, had been reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal for the network and was in the middle of a First Amendment case after refusing to turn over to an Obama-appointed federal judge the name of a source for an investigative piece she wrote for Fox News in 2017.

Catherine Herridge, probably the best reporter that CBS has, as well as about 20 other CBS reporters, were let go in a blood bath firing by Paramount Global, with 800 people total losing their jobs. The Washington Bureau, where they covered national security and intelligence, was hit hard. Herridge just posted on X Monday about more damaging news to Joe Biden, noting that the House Oversight Committee wanted the transcript of the Hur interview with Joe Biden, and they expressed concerns about Biden retaining potentially sensitive documents related to specific countries involving his family’s foreign business dealings.

Hawaii's highest court ruled Wednesday that Second Amendment rights as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court do not extend to Hawaii citizens, citing the "spirit of Aloha." In the ruling, which was penned by Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Todd Eddins, the court determined that states "retain the authority to require" individuals to hold proper permits before carrying firearms in public. The decision also concluded that the Hawaii Constitution broadly "does not afford a right to carry firearms in public places for self defense," further pointing to the "spirit of Aloha" and even quoting HBO's TV drama "The Wire."

There was never a purer demonstration of how traitorous Democrats are about “defending democracy,” or whatever corny phrase they like to use, than what just happened at the Supreme Court. At the very end of oral arguments in the Colorado case determining whether the state had the right to remove former President Donald Trump’s name from the 2024 ballot, Justice Samuel Alito asked the state’s solicitor general, Shannon Stevenson, what’s going to happen if other states “retaliate” by, say, removing Joe Biden from theirs. Elected officials in at least six states have suggested it as a course of action.

President Joe Biden has endorsed a Senate deal to massively expand overall immigration to the United States negotiated by Sens. James Lankford (R-OK) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) among others, saying he “will sign it” if it is passed through Congress. Lankford and Murphy have negotiated a deal to expand legal immigration levels by an additional 50,000 green cards annually, expedite work permits for illegal aliens released into the nation’s interior, provide taxpayer-funded lawyers to Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs), and allow up to 35,000 illegal aliens to arrive at the border every week before imposing border controls, among other things.

Boy, are they desperate. The internal polling on African Americans must be through the roof for Donald Trump. After his nasty dishonest SOTU Address last night – the Biden team released a new ad on Friday comparing Trump supporters to the KKK. The Biden ad shows images of Donald Trump with KKK marchers and a noose. Why is this not flagged by Google-YouTube for violent content and misinformation? [Video] As everyone knows the KKK was the militant wing of the Democrat Party. When the Civil War ended, and after Republican President Abraham Lincoln liberated the slaves, Democrats initiated Jim Crow laws to punish blacks.

Joe Biden’s fiery but mostly peaceful State of the Union address prompted many to suggest that he had been drugged before the speech to ensure an energetic performance. I don’t doubt that many wags made those comments in jest, but it may actually be the truth. A psychiatrist who specializes in elderly dementia patients told the Washington Times that Biden displayed behaviors indicative of stimulant usage to conceal cognitive decline during his State of the Union address on Thursday. While Democrats were rushing to claim that his performance proved that he was physically and mentally capable of handling the presidency, Dr. Carole Lieberman, a forensic psychiatrist based in Beverly Hills, Calif.,

There are a lot of reasons to be grateful to be an American.

That may not be the case in Canada much longer, where their Parliament is considering a law allowing judges to place someone under house arrest if the judge thinks they might commit a "hate crime."

Progressive Democrats are furious at President Joe Biden for accurately describing the man suspected of murdering 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley. Biden addressed Riley’s death during his State of the Union address Thursday evening after he was heckled by Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R., Ga.) and misstated her name in the process. “Lincoln (sic) Riley, an innocent young women who was killed by an illegal, that’s right,” Biden said while holding up a pin with her name on it. “To her parents I say, my heart goes out to you having lost children myself, I understand,” he added.

Pound sand, y'all. That's my interpretation of how Houston Mayor John Whitmire handled a demand from the city's Mulsim community. Houston Muslim leaders issued a 24-hour deadline to the mayor in their demand that he call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war. There was a Thursday 5:00 p.m. deadline for the mayor to call for a ceasefire and Mayor Whitmire did not meet that deadline. More than 40 Muslim Imams and organizations threatened to boycott the city's annual Ramadan dinner. And, they threatened to remove their support. They said if he did not meet their demand Whitmire would lose audiences, business partners, and also votes.
