Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 22 minutes


Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Lawfare, in its most obvious construct, is not a legal approach per se’, it is the intentional manipulation of the legal system to create the optics around information that is intended to be used by media to influence public opinion. That’s what Lawfare is all about, manipulating public opinion through leaks to the media.  The leaks do not need to be truthful, accurate or directly in line with the prosecution of the case; they are intended exclusively to manipulate public opinion.

Brian T. Kennedy contributor to The American Mind: Indeed, the very idea of the West has largely been abandoned. At its best, the West presented to the world an intellectual defense of freedom of the mind, freedom of religion, and the freedom of peoples to determine how they would govern themselves. It represented man’s highest aspirations. It is the thing for which men crossed oceans. It was the thing for which men fought and died. Although these beliefs are still held by the American people, they appear to have largely been rejected by U.S. elites. Witness the rejection of American principles in the modern university and the administrative state that runs our country.

Robert Bryce and Joel Kotkin contributors to The American Mind: There’s little doubt that the Biden Administration is the most anti-hydrocarbon administration in U.S. history. But the Second October War requires a rethinking of priorities. American oil, gas, and coal are now more critical than ever in the global marketplace. That means Biden and his advisors must reverse course and encourage more hydrocarbon production. Western energy production must remain robust to counter leading oil producers Saudi ArabiaQatar, and Iraq, all of which have declared solidarity with the Palestinians. Qatar, a key financial backer Hamas, and Russia are likewise important exporters of gas. It would be folly to cede the global oil and gas markets to OPEC and Russia.

Monica Crowley contributor to Newsweek: Biden’s radical policies have created staggering problems. Since he entered office, his inflationary spending has made the typical American family $7,300 poorer. Approximately 8 million illegal immigrants have crossed the wide-open southern border, bringing tsunamis of dangerous drugs and crime. Our once-great cities are in collapse. Three different American bases are under attack in the Middle East.

Edward Ring contributor to American Greatness: If being a scientist is not a requirement for being a climate alarmist, it should not be a requirement for anyone skeptical of climate alarmism. Our capacity as intelligent non-scientists to assess competing scientific analysis may be limited, but no more so than the Bontas, Newsoms, Bidens, Gores, and Thunbergs of the world. And it isn’t hard to see an agenda at work, when every time the climate so much as hiccoughs, every mainstream news source in the world is regurgitating precisely the same terrifying soundbites and images, and repeating the same phrases and admonitions over and over and over again. Confronting such obvious and coordinated propaganda should raise skepticism in anyone with common sense and a sense of history.

Wayne Allyn Root contributor to Gateway Pundit: I’ve also warned on many occasions, RFK Jr. should never be Trump’s Vice President. Many conservative hosts naively suggested and recommended that. I’ve said again and again, that should never be an option. Why? Because Bobby is still a proud Kennedy Democrat. He’s not a communist traitor. He doesn’t hate America. But he is in the mode of Ted Kennedy, George McGovern, Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale. Meaning he’s a traditional, old-school liberal Democrat. Which means tax, spend and regulate the economy to death. All those old Democrat policies that damage the US economy…put businesses out of business…kill jobs…and explode the national debt. I don’t know about you, but I want no part of that. Did you hear the latest news? I told you so. Like a typical, old-school, bleeding-heart, Jimmy Carter-like Democrat, RFK Jr. just announced his support of REPARATIONS. Yes, those reparations.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The ayatollahs are getting impatient that their $6 billion check hasn’t arrived in the mail. And they do like celebrating the 40th anniversary of their great triumph… the Marine Barracks bombing. So they spent a little time trying to kill American soldiers. Again. At least two-dozen American military personnel based in Iraq and Syria were injured in drone attacks last week that officials said were launched by Iran-backed proxy groups.

Chang: Gun Grab: State Democrats Pass Sweeping Gun Control Bill in Reaction to Recent Pro-2A Supreme Court Decision

In the latest constitutional breach, the blue state of Massachusetts approved a sweeping gun control bill that critics say would impose widespread bans on commonly owned firearms. On Wednesday, the Democrat-controlled Massachusetts House of Representatives passed H 4135, which prohibits firearms in public spaces such as schools, polling places and government buildings, cracks down on “ghost guns” and tightens the state’s ban on so-called assault weapons. Second Amendment proponents said the bill, which passed by a vote of 120-38, targets legal gun owners while doing nothing to deter crime.

Sundance: Special Counsel Jack Smith Continues Lawfare Operation With More Leaks to ABC, This Time Claiming Mark Meadows Warned Trump About 2020 Election Result Being Accurate

Too many people continue falling for this Lawfare nonsense. CTH has been outlining what Lawfare operations are all about since we deconstructed the Trayvon Martin narrative. Perhaps a reminder is useful. Lawfare, in its most obvious construct, is not a legal approach per se’, it is the intentional manipulation of the legal system to create the optics around information that is intended to be used by media to influence public opinion {link} That’s what Lawfare is all about, manipulating public opinion through leaks to the media. The leaks do not need to be truthful, accurate or directly in line with the prosecution of the case; they are intended exclusively to manipulate public opinion. […] Bolstering the likelihood that Meadows gave no such testimony, Meadows lawyers, when contacted by media, said the story is fake news. Yet again, everyone falls for it. This is how Lawfare succeeds, and this is how Trayvon Martin’s fake and fabricated ear-witness girlfriend becomes the key witness and embarrasses the prosecution on the stand.

Chastain: Trump Georgia Case: Lawyer Jenna Ellis Takes a Plea Deal

In exchange for her cooperation, Ellis pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings. The count stems from her testimony before a Georgia Senate subcommittee on Dec. 3, 2020. Along with co-defendants Rudy Giuliani and Ray Smith, Ellis “knowingly, willingly, and unlawfully” made false statements about election fraud in Georgia, according to her new charging document. Under the terms of the agreement, Ellis must serve five years probation, 100 hours of community service and pay $5,000 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. She agreed to testify truthfully when called, provide documents and other evidence, refrain from posting about the case on social media and to pen an apology letter to Georgia voters.

La Valle: The Biggest Button

Until the spring of 2020, the threat of “The Great Reset” to create an authoritarian one-world order sounded like a fever dream conspiracy theory. But now, in the aftermath of COVID-19 and all its attendant economic, social, and political consequences, The Great Reset seems very real—an ongoing enterprise by powerful corporate players to insinuate themselves into the critical arenas of worldwide governance—with America and much of the world now in the throes of a New Normal. The term “Great Reset” gained mainstream prominence in 2010 with the publication of The Great Reset by Richard Florida, a neoliberal urban studies theorist at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. Florida saw the economic crisis of 2007 and 2008 exposing inherent defects and unsustainability in American capitalism—as demanding a “reset” of society. Florida posited that such cycles of necessary and beneficial “resets”—depressions, recessions, world wars, social upheavals, paradigm shifts—would permit America to usher in a braver mundus novus free from any misguided expressions of democracy. […] Of course, when an elite, global organization funded by the economic and political might of more than 1,000 hand-chosen transnational corporations, megabanks, political leaders, and captains of industry (membership is by invitation only) promises to restructure the entire global system of international institutions and their relationships for the good of the planet and humanity—well, skeptical voices are aroused.

Heath: AI developers are failing on transparency, new index shows

A damning assessment of 10 key AI foundation models in a new transparency index is stoking new pressure on AI developers to share more information about their products — and on legislators and regulators to require such disclosures. Why it matters: The Stanford, MIT and Princeton researchers who created the index say that unless AI companies are more forthcoming about the inner workings, training data and impacts of their most advanced tools, users will never be able to fully understand the risks associated with AI, and experts will never be able to mitigate them.

Ring: Climate Data Refutes Crisis Narrative

On September 16, with great fanfare, California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced his office had filed a lawsuit against five major oil companies. Accusing them of knowingly misleading the public regarding the alleged harm that fossil fuels would inflict on the climate, Bonta’s office seeks billions in compensatory damages. But the climate change theory that Bonta’s case relies on must ultimately be validated by observational data. And the data does not support the theory. Suing oil companies is becoming big business. Along with California, state and local government climate change lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry have been filed in Oregon, California, Colorado, Minnesota, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, South Carolina, and Hawaii. Alleging these companies have directly caused global warming and extreme weather, they seek damages for consumer fraud, public nuisance, negligence, racketeering, erosion, flooding and fires. […]  It’s no certainty the oil industry will aggressively fight these lawsuits. If a broad settlement can be reached, that is probably their preference. […] That’s also a shame. By sidestepping the question of whether CO2 is indeed a dangerous pollutant, and instead leaving that decision up to a politicized EPA, the U.S. Supreme Court in the Massachusetts v. EPA case issued a deeply flawed ruling. Without CO2, life on earth as we know it would not exist. CO2 is plant food, and without it, plants die. There is evidence that more atmospheric CO2 would have a primarily beneficial impact on planetary ecosystem health. If oil and gas companies defended themselves on this basis, they might take a case all the way to the Supreme Court and force a reversal of Massachusetts v. EPA.

Killough: Experts say 50 million miles of new power lines needed for green energy, and that may be impossible

It’s one thing to try and replace fossil fuels with wind and solar power, but experts are saying the generation of power is only half the battle, and that the problems in getting that power to Americans may be insurmountable. A new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) concludes that the size of the global electricity grid will need to double by 2040, in order to reach global emission reductions targets in line with the Paris Agreement. That means, the IEA says, the world will need to refurbish or add 50 million miles of new transmission lines within 17 years — the equivalent of circling the equator more than 2,000 times.

The Center Square Staff: Colorado school district to rely on diesel buses for challenging routes green buses can’t handle

The Boulder Valley School District says it wants to replace its diesel school buses with more environmentally friendly green buses. […] The district is set to approve the purchase of five new diesel passenger school buses for $714,876. The district is expected to approve the new school buses at its Oct. 24 meeting. The district said the new diesel buses are needed because, “diesel school buses are essential for mountain routes due to their robust performance in challenging terrains. These routes often have steep inclines, variable weather conditions, and remote locations, making diesel buses a practical choice.” “Propane and electric buses have limitations on mountain routes,” the district stated.

Berenson: More proof the mRNAs rewire the immune system with unknown long-term effects

Many people who receive mRNA Covid jabs wind up with profound changes in their immune systems that usually arise only after prolonged exposure to allergens like bee venom, a new study confirms. The changes seem to reduce the immune response to Covid as the body adjusts to the unnaturally high antibody levels mRNA jabs initially produce. […] The study also showed a powerful immunosuppressant given for eczema suppresses the changes – further raising questions about the potential relationship between skin and autoimmune disorders and the mRNAs. […] The United States – home of two of the three mRNA Covid vaccine companies – continues to do everything possible to deny even the theoretical possibility of mRNA side effects. All three IgG4 papers came from European researchers. After all, you can’t report bad news if you don’t find it. And you can’t find it if you don’t look.

Whedon:Tom Emmer drops out of speaker’s race

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer has dropped out of the race to become the Speaker of the House, doing so within hours of the Republican conference backing him for the post. Emmer triumphed over a litany of other candidates in a string of Republican conference votes. After becoming the speaker designee, however, former President Donald Trump came out against his leadership, telling Republicans that to give him the position would be a “tragic mistake.”

Democrats in the House are delighted at what they describe as “chaos.” Johnson, vice chair of the House GOP conference, lost to House Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn., earlier on Tuesday but Emmer eventually dropped out due to opposition from enough Republicans to sink his ascension to the speakership on the House floor.

Crowley: The World Needs President Trump Now More Than Ever | Opinion

Shortly after Israel was savagely attacked by Hamas terrorists, a popular meme appeared showing former President Donald Trump in silhouette in a Batman-esque bat signal with the line: “The entire world right now.” Under Trump, “peace through strength” wasn’t just a suggestive mantra; it was a governing imperative. Trump understood that when the United States is weak or is perceived as weak, the good guys retreat, the bad guys advance, and the wheels come off the world. Trump also knew that by putting America First, our allies and our adversaries would understand that he meant business: If the American people or interests were threatened, there would be an overwhelming U.S. retaliatory response. This kept the bad guys in check and allowed the world to enjoy relative peace, stability and prosperity. Enter President Joe Biden, who, like most Leftists, put America Last. He rejected the moral and practical necessity of American strength and embraced feeble irresolution. He has projected constant weakness, equivocation, ineptitude and moral bankruptcy. The result has been. . .

Bionder: ‘Truly Precious’: CCP Propaganda Rag Gushes Over Gavin Newsom Amid China Trip

‘California in recent years has pursued a friendly policy toward China,’ state-run Global Times says. […] As Newsom traveled to Hong Kong on Monday for a week-long trip, Chinese state-run propaganda rag Global Times published an editorial praising the Democrat’s “keen desire” to cooperate with the communist nation. While the Chinese people “currently lack faith in Washington as a whole and have distrust toward some US politicians,” according to the outlet, Newsom is held in high regard given his “deep connection with China.” “The welcome for Governor Newsom’s visit is sincere and warm, as ‘it is always a pleasure to greet a friend from afar,'” reads the editorial, which is titled, “Truly precious for China-California friendship to carry forward.”

Sundance: Pentagon Now Admits Two Dozen U.S. Military Personnel Were Injured During Drone Attacks on U.S. Bases – Biden Was Napping on the Beach

Several people have questioned why the U.S. injuries were not reported at the time of the attack.  The answer is simple, Joe Biden was sleeping on the beach at the time of the events. It wouldn’t look good, so the injuries were withheld until today. Two dozen American military personnel were wounded last week in a series of drone attacks at American bases in Iraq and Syria, U.S. Central Command told NBC News on Tuesday. The Pentagon confirmed the attacks last week, but the number of U.S. casualties has not been previously disclosed. Twenty American personnel sustained minor injuries on Oct. 18 when at least two one-way attack drones targeted al-Tanf military base in southern Syria, CENTCOM said.

Goodwin: Are Biden and Obama on Israel’s side? Recent actions raise questions

With Barack Obama publicly warning Israel about the deaths of civilians in Gaza, the Biden White House leaking its doubts about Israel’s ability to carry out a ground invasion and the head of the United Nations suggesting Israel provoked the Hamas terror attack, the question arises: Whose side are they on?

Less than three weeks after Israel suffered the deadliest day in its history, the Jewish state is being treated like the problem rather than the victim by some of its supposed friends. Instead of getting support for its justified aim of eradicating Hamas, demands are mounting for Israel to temper its response lest it spark a wider war and mass casualties of Palestinian civilians.

Sundance: The Game Continues – Hamas Releases Two More Elderly Hostages, Keeps Their Husbands

If you drop the pretending, it becomes crystal clear to see the hostages are being used as leverage to stop a counteroffensive by the Israeli military.  The Obama/Biden administration alignment with Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), permeates the media narrative with calls to negotiate terms for peace and hostage release. As we expected, Benjamin Netanyahu is being painted into a corner by the Biden administration who are using the U.S. military presence as a shield to force Israel to follow the approved program of the U.S. government.   Biden, et al, want to protect Hamas while simultaneously calling residents of Gaza “victims” to the interests of Hamas and the PIJ.

Kennedy: Warfare by Immigration

The difference between the Cold War and today is that the Soviets and the Chinese could not, back then, contemplate a United States that would open its borders to millions of people from all over the planet, regardless of their country of origin or political views. There was always immigration of course, including illegal immigration. But the seriousness of the Cold War required that new citizens were mostly of a certain kind, even if most came for economic reasons. The opening of the U.S. border today reveals an America engaged in a kind of national suicide. Given such weakness, we should not then be surprised that America’s major cities and her capitol have been filled with protesters who march in solidarity with Hamas and their deadly attack on Israel. It makes no difference that these protests purport to be in support of the Palestinian cause. Their practical effect is the support of terrorism and murder. Some of the protestors are themselves Palestinians who have imported their grievances to the United States. Others are Communists, Marxists, Leninists, Muslims, and Muslim immigrants who are emboldened to defend openly the use of terrorism as a legitimate political act. It should be perfectly clear they have rejected the principles of the United States and embraced the nihilistic death cult that is global Islamic terrorism.

Leibovitz: American Banlieue

These past few weeks, we’ve witnessed a new and terrifying phenomenon: The banlieue-ization of American cities and college campuses. Just like the French suburbs that catch fire, quite literally, every time their disgruntled residents decide that they’re not fond of a particular policy or bit of breaking news, we now have bonfires in Bay Ridge and pinheads at Penn marching around and cheering on Jewish genocide. And just like those French suburbs, one major reason for this vile and violent degeneracy is a new generation of young people who no longer feel bound to their fellow citizens in any meaningful way.

Watching Brooklynites burn down the block while calling for the destruction of the world’s sole Jewish state upset me not only because of what it might mean for Israel, where I was born, but also, and much more so, because of what it means for America, where I choose to live. […] What changed? To answer this question, consider the two things press reports tell us for certain about the rioters: Most are young, and most are of Middle Eastern descent. Why would these youthful Americans, hailing from Staten Island and Brooklyn and Queens, throw punches and pelt the police with eggs? Their parents, after all, never did—not during previous rounds of Israeli-Palestinian altercations, not during America’s failure to keep its promise and intervene as Syria’s Assad massacred hundreds of thousands of his own people, not even during America’s bungled invasion of Iraq. Why would the young riot now?

Bensman: Thousands of ‘Special Interest Aliens’ Posing Potential National Security Risks Entering via CBP One App

. . .  new records released to the Center for Immigration Studies last week as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit reveal that the Biden administration has been authorizing thousands of SIAs for escorted entries through land ports along the border since at least May 2021, using “CBP One” online interfaces such as a mobile phone app. Using this program, the administration has authorized the paroles into the country of some 7,332 SIAs from 24 of the roughly 35-40 U.S.-designated countries, including smatterings from Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, but the largest numbers coming from Muslim-majority former Soviet republics in Central Asia such as the Kyrgyz Republic, also known as Kyrgyzstan, (3,852) and Uzbekistan (1,843). These government-sanctioned SIA entries are very different from the surprise illegal border crossings of SIAs with which homeland security officials traditionally have had to contend in that these ones are pre-approved before their escorted port of entry crossings, their names and biometrics ostensibly having been run through criminal database checks (though such checks have been panned as grossly inadequate). At issue with government-authorized entries of SIAs over the land ports is whether the Biden administration’s DHS is conducting effective enhanced security screening beyond the standard criminal database checks used for the more than 249,000 non-SIA immigrants the CIS FOIA records show it has paroled in since May 2021 through eight land ports.

The state of Texas and a free market policy group sued the Biden administration Tuesday in response to Border Patrol agents being directed to cut concertina wire fencing erected by state officers in Eagle Pass, Texas, to help secure the southern border. The wire fencing was put up as part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s border security mission, Operation Lone Star. The lawsuit was filed by the office of the Attorney General and the Texas Public Policy Foundation in U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas Del Rio Division. It names the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Border Patrol, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Acting CBP Commissioner Troy Miller, Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens, and Del Rio Sector Chief Juan Bernal as defendants.

This is a federal problem and has always been a federal problem,” said Maria Ortiz, 37, works in retail and says she constantly sees migrants begging on the train with their babies. “I’m not voting for him. I voted to get him in office and it’s [been] my biggest regret since,” she said at Jamaica Station in Queens.

O’Neil: Father Whose Son Had Transgender Surgery Despite Court Order Issues Dire Warning About Parental Rights

A California father has urged a court to find his ex-wife, her lawyer, his son’s lawyer, and a hospital in contempt of court after they went around a court order stipulating that his son would not receive transgender-related surgery unless the father approved it. “This is not an accident,” Ted Hudacko, the father in question, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview last week. “This was intentionally done.” He also warned that two of the figures in his story—the judge who revoked his visitation rights and the lawyer who represents the University of California, San Francisco (where the surgery took place), are pro-transgender activists who train custody attorneys to undermine the parental rights of “non-affirming” parents (parents who refuse to affirm their child’s decision to identify as another gender).

Center Square Staff: Attorneys general side with parental rights over school board

Leading a group of 23 attorneys general, Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares filed an amicus brief on Wednesday on behalf of the plaintiffs in Mahmoud v. McKnight, a lawsuit involving Maryland parents and the Montgomery County School Board. . . .the Montgomery County School Board announced in March 2023 that parents would not be allowed to recuse their children from classes where “LGBTQ+ inclusive” books would be shared with students, nor would they be notified of when this would occur. The school board last year invested in a series of 22 LGBTQ+ inclusive books to be used in the education of pre-kindergarten and elementary school students. These books “portray elementary school age children falling in love with other children, regardless of sexual preferences,” according to the brief. They also include terms like “intersex flag,” “[drag] king,” “platform shoes,” “lip ring” and “leather” among word lists children can match to images, according to religious liberties law firm Becket.

Dershowitz: Blood Libel against Jews: Back with a Vengeance

  • This conflict is not about occupation or settlements. The chants of anti-Israel protesters, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” means that the entire area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea — all of Israel — must be free of Jews.
  • The truth does not matter to bigots.

A document from the end of the 15th century features an illustration of a bearded Jew extracting the blood of a Christian child. The adjoining text explains that Jewish law requires that Passover matzoh be baked with the blood of Christian children.

Such documents were widely circulated through Europe during the Easter season and led to frequent pogroms — murder, rape, and destruction — against Jewish children, women and men in revenge for allegedly killing Christian children for their blood to make matzoh. There was never any actual evidence of such cannibalism. In fact, Jewish law explicitly prohibits the consumption of any blood or its use in cooking. The total lack of evidence, however, did not matter to those who were taught and believed what has come to be known as the “blood libel.” Despite all the evidence to the contrary, many believed that this falsehood was “true.” This blood libel persisted throughout Europe into the early 20th century. Jews were put on trial and executed for supposedly killing Christian children for their blood. Other libels against Jews formed the basis for classic antisemitism, culminating in . . .

Tobin: ‘Just as Cruel as the Terrorists’: Many Ordinary Palestinians Joined in Hamas’s Atrocities Against Israel

As Hamas terrorists carried out a highly choreographed massacre in Israel on Oct. 7, they received a source of support that amplified the horror that took place that day. A mob of ordinary Palestinians spontaneously joined in what became the deadliest pogrom against Jews since the Holocaust, according to videos, eyewitness accounts, and the Israel Defense Forces. Whereas the Hamas terrorists wore uniforms and carried military-grade weapons, the Gazans who followed them into the Jewish state were dressed as civilians and mostly unarmed, two officials from Israel’s devastated Gaza border region said. Young men with knives, overweight dads, and at least one elderly man on crutches were among those who exploited Hamas’s rampage to create a second wave of carnage that rivaled the barbarism of the professional terrorists.

Zanger-Nadis: Hamas terrorists: We were told ‘whoever brings a hostage gets $10,000’

Israel’s Shin Bet security service and Police force jointly interrogated six detainees from Gaza who participated in the destruction and mass murder of October 7, 2023. The footage from the interrogation was released on Monday and showed selected clips from six separate interrogations. Each terrorist had a slightly different experience, but Israeli intelligence forces noted a number of common themes. All the Hamas agents were given explicit instructions to kill and kidnap civilians including the elderly along with women and children. While they did this, their commanders stayed behind in Gaza.  One of the terrorists told Israeli forces that “whoever brings a hostage back [to Gaza] gets $10,000 and an apartment.”

Green: You Can’t Beat the Truth Into This Israeli Peace Activist with a Stick, Literally

When Hamas terrorists released 85-year-old peace activist Yocheved Lifschitz for the fawning press to record on Monday, she was kind enough to give them another small propaganda win on her way back to Israel. Lifschitz and her husband, Oded, were taken hostage from the Nir Oz kibbutz by Hamas terrorists on motorcycles during the October 7 terror invasion of Israel. […]  Yet when Yocheved was released on Monday, she turned back to shake her captor’s hand and wished him “Shalom,” the Hebrew word for peace. I don’t know her captor but I do know Hamas, whose stated purpose is the destruction of Israel and the murder of every Jew. When Lifschitz shook that man’s hand, it was a moment to warm the hearts of murderous antisemites around the world.

Hulkower: ACLU Announces Lawsuit To Protect Black And Transgender Prostitutes’ Right To Give People HIV

“We’re suing Tennessee for their ‘aggravated prostitution’ statute that targets people with HIV with harsh punishment and lifetime sex offender registration. This law is unconstitutional and disproportionately affects Black and transgender women,” the ACLU tweeted. […] Tennessee law prohibits a person from knowingly giving someone HIV through “intimate contact” without first informing their partner they had the disease and obtaining consent, Justia US Law noted. There is another law in Tennessee that prohibits a person who knows they have HIV from engaging in prostitution, soliciting prostitution or being “an inmate in a house of prostitution”, the outlet noted.

Dedaj: Che Flores becomes NBA’s first openly nonbinary, trans referee

“One piece I was missing for myself was that no one knew how I identified,” Flores told the outlet. “Being misgendered as she/her always just felt like a little jab in the gut.” According to the National Basketball Referees Association, Flores first started in the NBA as a non-staff official during the 2021-22 season. Flores officiated 10 seasons in the WNBA and nearly a decade in the G League. […]  “When I started refereeing, you had to look a certain way,” Flores recalled in the interview. “This is the first time I’m comfortable expressing myself through my own fashion and not having to worry about it. I feel one hundred percent myself now.”

Judicial Watch: Obama Chef Death Investigation Update: Records Reveal Barack Obama Was at Emergency Scene of Family Chef Drowning

We’re learning much more about the tragic death at Obama’s home. We received 40 pages of records from the Massachusetts State Police that indicate the presence of Barack Obama for a witness interview in the death investigation of the Obamas’ personal chef Tafari Campbell. The records, which are heavily redacted, indicate Barack Obama arrived at the emergency response scene via motorcade. A short time later, a cold, wet woman, who was a witness, arrived. The next morning, the eyewitness was interviewed in the Obama residence, again with Barack Obama present. It is concerning that we had to push for several months to find out that Barack Obama was personally involved in the death investigation of his personal chef Tafari Campbell.

Judicial Watch: “Asking for Trouble:” State Gives Illegal Immigrants Driver’s License that Looks Exactly like Legal Residents’ 

This month Minnesota became the latest state to allow illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license as part of a burgeoning national trend to reward undocumented residents with government benefits. In all, 19 states and the District of Columbia have passed bills that permit foreigners living in the U.S. illegally to obtain driver’s licenses. Earlier this year laws went into effect in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and a few weeks ago Minnesota’s measure, known as Driver’s Licenses for All, went into effect. Officials estimate that about 80,000 illegal immigrants who were previously disqualified from obtaining the cards in the North Star state will now be allowed to get them. California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington are the other states that let illegal aliens get driver’s licenses. […] Under the new law Minnesota’s Department of Vehicle Services (DVS) is prohibited from asking driver’s license applicants about immigration status or from placing any special identifier on the card indicating immigration status. The state agency is also banned from providing information to federal authorities for the purpose of civil immigration enforcement.
