Just days ago, NSC spokesman John Kirby assured the world of the administration’s “unwavering support” for Israel in its fight for survival. President Biden authorized an arms transfer to Israel, including 1,800 MK-84 2,000-pound bombs, 500 MK-82 500-pound bombs, and 25 F-35A fighter jets. Days later, following tragic drone strikes in which seven World Central Kitchen workers perished, the President made clear the need for Israel to announce and implement a series of specific, concrete, and measurable steps to address civilian harm, humanitarian suffering, and the safety of aid workers," according to a White House readout of the call.

I heard someone say that protecting civilian (innocent) lives should be the first priority in a conflict. That's just not true. It has never been true and never will be true. The first priority has always been to defeat the enemy. That's why when a conflict emerges you need to get out of the way or you will be a participant.

War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is the sooner it will be over. William Tecumseh Sherman BTW, he was partially named after Tecumseh, a Shawnee Chief.

How about the UN implementing concrete steps to prevent UN workers from participating in terrorist raids in Israel. But, really, if you want to avoid the awful events of war, that takes strategy, diplomacy, forethought, Trump did it, Biden didn't.

Biden and Kirby come across as two chattering magpies on the sidelines while adults are trying to accomplish something important to the entire Middle East. If Bibi and his IDF were not concerned with civilian lives, this war would have been over in two months.

"Doctors Without Borders" I can understand. They perform lifesaving surgeries no one else is available and competent to perform. Gourmet "Chefs In a Warzone" I cannot understand. The starving civilian victims of this war don't need gourmet chefs; they need bread and protein. Besides, large percentages of these Gazan civilians supported Hamas's brutal rape, torture, and murder of Israeli civilians on October 7. And, unlike Biden and the dems, I believe much of the news coming out of Gaza is exaggerated propaganda no one should be accepting at face value.

Does anyone believe that ByeDUMB actually sets any policy or actions by his own stupid Alzheimer's Disease ridden and addled brain (if he actually has one,....)? Joe the dope can't and or doesn't remember what he even had for breakfast this or any other day in his feeble brain. The so called POTUS has Alzheimer's Disease and all US government policy and actions and commands are done by a corrupt American cabal of traitors and America haters. The USA is on the verge of total collapse and anarchy due to these traitors and our equally corrupt so called media and educational system This is the worst time in my long life for the USA. Please excuse and forgive me for my extreme pessimism and despair. I hope that I'm wrong.

Three short videos reveal how Gaza’s

For decades, but with special force since October 7, Israel and her friends have always made the same point about Israel’s conflicts with the jihadists who attack her: Everything the jihadists say to the world’s media is propaganda; the world’s media know this but report it anyway; and hospitals are Hamas’s military headquarters and ambulances their military transport, making both legitimate military targets. Two videos (one from Bill Clinton and one from an Islamic Jihad spokesman) prove these facts to be true, and one video (from a Joe Rogan interview with Coleman Hughes) shows how Israel is completely shackled by Hamas’s tactics and the world’s complicity.

In a recent discussion with Alexander Stubb, who is the president of Finland, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria apparently thought it would be a cakewalk to get the newly elected European leader to say something negative and alarming about former President Donald Trump. It did not go well for Fareed. President Stubb ended up praising Trump for doing what is right. Fareed, pushing a familiarly deceptive media line, asked President Stubb to comment on “what everybody is talking about,” namely that: President Stubb did not take the bait. Rejecting Fareed’s attempt to stir up dissension between Trump and NATO members,

Melania Trump’s headlining fundraiser later this month is part of a strategy to portray the former first lady as a “softer, more moderate voice” for the Trump campaign, sources told The Post. While Donald Trump will join his wife at the April 20 fundraiser, hosted at Mar-a-Lago by the Log Cabin Republicans, insiders said the campaign intends to put — and keep — Melania in the spotlight as the feminine counterpoint to his brash style. “The Trump campaign recognizes that Melania is their secret weapon,” a source close to the campaign said. “Her appeal is critical to win battleground states and undecided voters,

President Joe Biden keeps lecturing corporate America to "pay your fair share" of taxes. It turns out he's right that some companies really are getting away scot-free from paying taxes. But it isn't Big Tech companies in Silicon Valley or the Wall Street financial company "fat cats" or big banks or Walmart. They pay billions in taxes. The culprits here are the very companies that Biden is in bed with: green energy firms. It turns out that despite all the promises over the past decade about how renewable energy is the future of power production in America,

The Jordanian authorities have accused the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot, Hamas, of seeking to destabilize security inside the kingdom. Behind both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, of course, is the terrorist-sponsoring emirate, Qatar, and its propagandizing television bullhorn, Al-Jazeera. Jordan's leaders are doing exactly what many other Arab regimes and heads of state have long been doing: radicalizing their people and inciting them to violence against Israel as a means of distracting them from problems at home.

Former President Donald Trump declined to endorse a national abortion ban Monday, instead saying that abortion laws should be left to the states. “My view is now that we have abortion where everyone wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation, or perhaps both. And whatever they decide must be the law of the land. In this case, the law of the state,” Trump said in a video message posted to his Truth Social page. He didn’t say after how many weeks of pregnancy he believes abortion should be banned.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton returned to her alma mater, Wellesley College, on Saturday. But the reception was less than polite.

It is important to understand that censorship does not occur in a vacuum. It is a symptom of a worsening disease. It is an early indicator of the political repression to come. Like a canary in a coal mine, the criminalization of speech forewarns that State-sponsored terror and murder are not far away. First, certain words and thoughts are banned. Next, certain people are rounded up and imprisoned. Finally, certain “enemies of the State” are executed quite publicly. The imposition of fear supersedes the rule of law. Terrorism undergirds social order. Oppression replaces popular support.

Those are four words that no lawyer wants to hear from a judge in a hearing. But that was not the least of it for Justice Department lawyers fighting House subpoenas into the Biden corruption scandal. U.S. District Court Judge Ana Reyes slammed the DOJ for stonewalling Congress on the subpoenas while imprisoning figures like former Trump adviser Peter Navarro for doing the same thing. The Biden Administration has blocked the testimony of prosecutors Mark Daly and Jack Morgan, who were involved in an inexplicable decision of the Justice Department to allow major felonies against Hunter Biden to lapse.

The war in Gaza, he says, is “not a war against terrorism anymore” but a “war against humanity itself.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has warned that Ukraine will lose the war against Russia unless the U.S. provides further military aid. According to The Kyiv Independent, Zelensky made the remarks on Sunday during a meeting with the Ukrainian fund-raising group UNITED24. “It’s important to specifically address the Congress: if the Congress doesn’t help Ukraine, Ukraine will lose the war,” Zelensky said. “If Ukraine loses this war, other countries will be attacked. This is a fact." The warning is one of the starkest since Russia invaded Ukraine over two years ago, as Congress wrangles over the condition of greenlighting further support.

Civil rights groups are calling for the collapsed Baltimore bridge to be renamed when it's rebuilt, citing accusations of racism against national anthem author Francis Scott Key. The Caucus of African American Leaders of Anne Arundel County in Maryland voted unanimously to call for the renaming and will lobby governor Wes Moore on the proposal, as reported by the Baltimore Banner. The caucus includes civil rights groups such as the NAACP and the National Coalition of 100 Black Women. Leaders argued that the The Star-Spangled Banner author -who the collapsed bridge was named after - was a slave owner who wrote lyrics that scholars have said 'demeaned black people.'

mericans are being urged to stay away from classic American dishes like steak and eggs and some desserts because there's a small risk of catching bird flu. That is the advice of former FDA food safety advisor Dr Darin Detwiler who said animal products that are not properly cooked could harbor small fragments of the virus which is currently tearing through US farms. That means steak should be cooked well done and eggs with runny yolks should be avoided. Even salad dressings like Caesar can be a risk due to being made with raw eggs, he said. The H5N1 bird flu strain has caused outbreaks on over a dozen farms across the US,

In yet another raucous display, a group of anti-Israel protesters marched into the Senate cafeteria on Tuesday to demonstrate against U.S. support of the Jewish state in its war against Hamas in Gaza. The incident is the latest in a series of protests and rallies staged by anti-Israel and pro-Hamas activists arguing against Israel’s effort to eliminate the terrorist group. The demonstrations resulted in the arrests of 50 people. The activists strode through the building, yelling chants such as “Senate can’t eat until Gaza eats” and “Children are starving in Gaza.” One woman can be seen on video footage wearing a shirt that reads: “Biden’s legacy = Genocide.”

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has been trying to crack down on the lawlessness by shutting down the illegal street vendors. But that has proven to be difficult. First, a 2018 state law has made it nearly impossible to enforce a ban because it prevents police officers from being involved in any crackdown. Only in California. But that's only half the problem.
