'Biden's DEI rules are worse than HAMAS':

expansion and instead expanding in dangerous
Israel and Russia because American grants
come with so many 'equity' caveats

Top microchip makers are postponing their expansion into the U.S. and setting up shop in Israel and Russia due to equity caveats that are required for them to receive grants from the U.S. government. The Biden administration promised earlier this year that they would be handing out $39 billion in grants to encourage semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. Shortly after the announcement however, Intel announced they would be holding off on their Columbus factory, while Samsung also delayed their facility in Texas. Despite the billions in subsidies, two experts believe the tech companies' decision to back out of building manufacturing facilities in the U.S. stems from the diversity, equity and inclusion policy.

We cannot be rid of this ignorant MFer and his DEI bulldhit infested puppeteers soon enough. At this rate it won’t take long to destroy America as we know it.

The days when people were considered equal are long gone. It is obvious that Democrats feel that blacks are inferior and cannot get hired unless employers are forced to hire them by DEI rules.

Always ask for the equity hire, when you need a doctor, plumber, or car mechanic.

In other words, the war on white people is attached to government grants, and these companies don't want to be hamstrung by hiring quotas.

I worked for 35 years in telecommunications. My company had federal contracts, and to qualify for them, you had to meet AA quotas. When the bottom fell out of the industry, all of the AA nonsense was the first to go, and it became about performance.

Israeli Eurovision singer Eden Golan today was ordered to stay in her hotel room by her country's national security agency as thousands of pro-Palestine protesters demonstrated in Malmo, calling for her to be excluded from the competition. Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg joined the thousands of protesters in the southern Swedish city demonstrating against Israel competing in the famous song contest. The climate activist, 21, was at the Stop Israel demonstration in the centre of the city on Thursday ahead of the young Israeli-Russian singer's performance at the second semi-final of the competition later this evening.

A former sales chief is suing IBM's Red Hat for being sacked alongside 20 other white men during the software subsidiary's aggressive diversity push to hire more women and African Americans. Allan Kingsley Wood, a white man, says he faced race and gender discrimination because of the company's diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) scheme, which set hiring targets for women and minorities. The case was filed by America First Legal (AFL), which is headed by former Trump administration official Stephen Miller, as part of a broader assault against DEI in businesses, colleges, and the military.
Israel launches rocket attack on Rafah

Israel has launched a rocket attack on Rafah after dismissing Hamas accepting a Gaza ceasefire proposal as a 'ruse'. Hamas issued a statement earlier today saying its supreme leader, Ismail Haniyeh, had delivered the news in a phone call with Qatar's prime minister and Egypt's intelligence minister. But an Israeli official said the proposal that Hamas had accepted was a 'softened' version of an Egyptian proposal, which included 'far-reaching' conclusions that Israel could not accept. 'This would appear to be a ruse intended to make Israel look like the side refusing a deal,' said the Israeli official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Hamas opened fire near the Keren Shalom crossing that had been used to bring in aid to Gaza. The attack was predictably launched from near a civilian shelter in Rafah. Meanwhile, Philippe Lazzarini, the head of UNRWA, whose employees have been shown to be Hamas, again and again, accused Israel of blocking aid. Every UN and international aid body in the region keeps claiming that there’s famine in Gaza. As they’ve been claiming for the past 6 months. Except that the famine is always on the verge of arriving, but never quite does.

The New York prosecutor in the New York City hush money case against Donald Trump was previously hired for 'political consulting' by the Democratic National Committee. The revelations regarding attorney Matthew Colangelo raises concerns over the perceived politicalization of the multiple cases against the former president – and specifically the first case brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office. Colangelo, according to a Fox News Digital review of Federal Election Commission records, was paid $12,000 by the DNC on January 31, 2018. It was distributed by DNC Services Corp/Democratic National Committee in two separate payments of $6,000 on the same day.

The CEO of Hims has walked back his support of anti-Israel campus protesters after the male hair loss company's stock dropped by 10 percent amid a boycott sparked by his comments. Andrew Dudum, who identifies as Palestinian-American, last week sparked uproar by offering jobs to the campus protesters at Columbia and other schools. Share holders sold off their positions and customers canceled their subscriptions in a boycott that tanked the company's value. On Sunday night, Dudum took to X to 'clarify' his comments, toning down his full-throated support after a wave of backlash.

Is anyone really surprised? After weeks of bias intimidation by Hamas supporters aimed at Jewish students and faculty, including Khymani James, an encampment leader who had talked to Columbia University officials about killing Jews, the Biden administration’s Department of Education, with the inevitability of a rigged slot machine in Reno, is launching a “civil rights investigation” into the university for “extreme anti-Palestinian, anti-Arab, and Islamophobic harassment”. The complaint comes from ‘Palestine Legal’, the same group providing advice to the encampment protesters. It complains that “Columbia has reinforced the hostile anti-Palestinian environment, including by suspending Students for Justice in Palestine — a student organization that advocates for Palestinian human rights.

The Chicago Teachers Union's contract is set to expire in June which will soon prompt negotiations between educators and the school board. Union President Stacy Davis Gates said in early March that her proposed contract for 2024 to 2028 'will cost $50 billion and 3 cents.' 'And so what?' Davis Gates added. 'That’s audacity. That’s Chicago.' The teachers union is demanding nine percent cost of living adjustments every year. According to Indeed, the average salary of a teacher in Chicago Public Schools is $67,718. With raises every year for four years, teachers would be getting paid about $95,000 a year by 2028, which is roughly 36 percent higher than the national average.

While most Americans don’t like Communist China, the highest negative scores for the Communist dictatorship can be found among Republicans and older Americans, while the most positive ones can be found among Democrats and younger people. Notably the only two groups where a quarter believe that China is a “partner” are 18-29-year-olds and “conservative” Democrats: a group that these days is disproportionately black. Liberals are the least likely of any group to see China as an enemy. And less than a third of Democrats in general view China as an enemy. Among 18-29-year-olds, 1 in 5 have a somewhat favorable view of China.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has been sued by a coalition of anti-abortion groups who say she sought to block Christian pregnancy centers from promoting so-called "abortion pill reversal" protocol. The coalition, represented by the Thomas More Society—a conservative law firm based in Chicago—accused James of carrying out a "witch hunt" after her office sent out "Notice of Intention to Sue" letters to multiple pregnancy help organizations calling on them to stop providing "persistent misleading statements" while advertising the safety and proficiency of abortion pill reversal (APR) methods.

Robert F.

In a no-shoes sitdown with former ESPN SportsCenter Host Sage Steele, Kennedy said he believes a woman should be allowed to kill her baby through all nine months of gestation. “Should there be a limit? Are you saying all the way up through full term a woman has a right to have an abortion?” Steele asked.

A California homeowner who was ordered to hide his boat from view of this wealthy neighbors has hilariously trolled city officials with an act of malicious compliance. Seaside resident Etienne Constable was told he needed to erect a cover to obscure the vessel or he would face an $100 fine back in July 2023. Municipal codes state that, 'boats and large pickup campers, motor homes, recreation vehicles, utility trailers, and vacation trailers' can only be parked on driveways if, 'screened on the side and front by a six-foot-high fence'. The homeowner acquiesced, but put his own tongue-in-cheek spin on it by painting a photo realistic mural

As Trump faces these politically motivated witch hunts—with nearly 100 felony counts across four jurisdictions—Bartiromo voiced the exasperation of a public weary of what they see as political theater without substantial outcomes. The counts against Trump carry a potential for roughly 700 years of combined incarceration.

On May 7, Florida Judge Aileen Cannon postponed former President Donald Trump’s classified documents trial after explosive information dropped late Friday afternoon. Several new pieces of evidence indicate it’s even possible federal employees planted classified documents to frame Trump. Even if what happened isn’t that nefarious — although exactly that scenario has already been deployed against Trump several times — not only could the case be thrown out of court, but some federal lawyers may have risked their licenses for mishandling evidence. As time goes on, the lawfare cases are looking increasingly like coverups of government attempts to imprison Democrats’ top political opponent by framing him

Last month, the United States vetoed a UN Security Council bid to recognize a “Palestinian” state. Today, however, the full UN General Assembly backed that same bid, with 143 nations out of the 193 total voting in favor of the idea (25 abstained). Think about that: Seventy-five percent of the UN is in favor of granting nationhood to a people whose raison d'être is to commit genocide against a UN nation. The world’s moral compass is broken and, as always, Jews are the canary in the coalmine. The rest of the civilized world will be next.

Eco-friendly brake cables are being eaten by foxes, after manufacturers switched from petroleum-based insulation to soy, forcing owners to wrap their cars in tarpaulins. Recent photos show multiple cars covered in blue plastic for protection after a spate of attacks in Worthing, West Sussex, with locals claiming at least 20 vehicles were targeted by foxes. Jack Cousens, the AA’s head of roads policy, said the animals may be attracted to the soy-based insulation on brake wires. Since 2000, peanut and soy-based oils and waxes have been used on car parts including gearbox insulation, primer bulbs and diesel injector wires, instead of petroleum-based coverings.

The steadily rising price of a dozen eggs at your favorite supermarket is just about all you need to know. There are big problems in the domestic poultry industry. When the price recently jumped to $5 a dozen, it signaled another outbreak of the bird flu. The bird-flu (highly pathogenic form of avian influenza) outbreaks are wreaking havoc on laying flocks of leghorns (white eggs) and Rhode Island reds (brown eggs) after being exposed to the virus introduced by wild birds (migratory ducks and geese passing it on to resident birds and then to the hen houses).
