Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 25 minutes


Michael Devon contributor to American Thinker: America has crossed the tipping point. We can clearly see that the inevitable politically caused disasters such as terrorism, overseas conflicts, and economic downturns will not be met with rational, coherent, and comprehensive solutions from the current federal or state authorities. Each of us is now personally responsible for the survival of his family and friends. Prepare accordingly. Start today.

Liel Leibovitz contributor to Tablet Magazine: We are, as the writer Louise Perry pointed out this week, increasingly in a world of anarcho-tyranny, wherein governments fail “to enforce or adjudicate protection to its citizens while simultaneously persecuting innocent conduct.” Now, look: Some questions are hard to answer. Who to marry. Where to live. Why there are ten hot dogs to a pack but only eight buns. Other questions are very easy. If you’re wondering what’s the one thing you could do right now to make you and your family safer, it’s simple: Get a gun. October 7 should have shaken you to the core. Enough to understand who your friends aren’t. Enough to understand that the darkest warnings whispered to us by elders who had witnessed unspeakable horrors, the warnings so many of us dismissed as belonging on history’s shelves and not in the sweet streets of the present—that these warnings were not for naught.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The pro-abortion side is not as wide as the media makes it seem, but it is deep. These days there are fewer single issue pro-life voters than single issue pro-abortion voters. And that is a factor of the decline of religion. There are more passionate pro-abortion people in many states than there are passionate pro-life people. A whole lot of young women have been groomed by shows like Handmaid’s Tale and media propaganda that they’re one vote away from being doomed by a worst case scenario pregnancy. The pro-life movement has made efforts to reach them, but it’s hard.

Josh Hammer and Seth Leibsohn contributors to The American Mind: Today, in a perverse twist, political speech that debates the best opinions about how we govern ourselves with regard to political contentions that have been with us since time immemorial has been censored on college campuses. When it comes to the war in Israel and Gaza, Americans living under our Constitution might disagree on the merits of a U.S.-prodded ceasefire, whether Hamas-supporting foreign students ought to have their visas revoked, or any number of other public policy issues. But bloodthirsty marches on behalf of genocide must not be confused with morally or legally legitimate “free speech” under our moralistic constitutional order. Our regime recognizes these not as differences in the “degree” of would-be speech, but in the kind of speech.

Dennis Prager contributor to American Greatness: Unlike the liberal Jew, the left-wing Jew – the professor, the columnist, the teacher – is a destructive fool. But the liberal Jew is inexcusably naive about the Left, nearly all of whose positions have nothing in common with liberalism, not to mention with the Torah. Maybe some will repent. But don’t bet on it.

Bari Weiss contributor to Tablet Magazine: “DEI” is not about the words it uses as camouflage. DEI is about arrogating power. And the movement that is gathering all this power does not like America or liberalism. It does not believe that America is a good country—at least no better than China or Iran. It calls itself progressive, but it does not believe in progress; it is explicitly anti-growth. It claims to promote “equity,” but its answer to the challenge of teaching math or reading to disadvantaged children is to eliminate math and reading tests. It demonizes hard work, merit, family, and the dignity of the individual.

Tony Badran contributor to Tablet Magazine: Communal grievance, of the kind you encounter in places like my native Beirut, is now the official modality—the fruit of the great leveling. The opposite of the project of leveling is the affirmation of the American covenantal ethos and American exceptionalism. That requires underscoring the boundaries that safeguard what has made us different and unique. Shipping out foreign nationals who insist on declaring their allegiance to rape, kidnapping, torture, and murder under the banners of their own failed societies seems like an obvious place to start. Highlighting that difference is also a first step toward restoring a sense of what immigrants should be assimilating into. To abandon the covenant of our fathers for the ways of sick nations is to condemn ourselves to ruin.

Revolver.news: While the disturbing decline in aviation safety is complex and multifaceted, we identified two major contributing factors that have received scant media attention. The first such factor is the likely contribution of disastrous COVID-era policies to the staffing shortage of many air traffic control rooms. The second factor is that aggressive affirmative action policies implemented during the Obama administration have resulted in a catastrophic collapse in the quality of controllers. In short, COVID policies have gutted the quantity of air traffic controllers, and diversity policies have gutted the quality of air traffic controllers, creating unprecedented danger for the aviation industry. The implications of these findings reach far beyond the scope of aviation, as important as this industry is. Rather, the collapse of the aviation industry must be understood in the context of a broader collapse in our ability to maintain the infrastructure of a First World society.


(In-depth report) Weingarten: Documents Shed New Light on Feds’ Collusion with Private Actors to Police Speech on Social Media

In the runup to the 2020 election, cybersecurity experts at the Department of Homeland Security and Stanford University decided they had discovered a major problem. The issue was not compromised voter rolls or corrupted election tallies but a “gap” in the government’s authority to clamp down on what it considered misinformation and disinformation – a gap identified by DHS officials and interns on loan to the agency from the Stanford Internet Observatory. Given what SIO research manager Renee DiResta described as the “unclear legal authorities” and “very real First Amendment questions” regarding this gap, the parties hatched a plan to form a public-private partnership that would provide DHS with an avenue to surreptitiously censor speech. The collaboration between DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency and the Stanford outfit would quickly expand into a robust operation whose full extent is only now becoming clear. RealClearInvestigations has obtained from House investigators records revealing in previously undisclosed detail the nature and mechanics of the operation – the SIO-led Election Integrity Partnership.  They show at a granular level the thousands of tweets and Facebook posts on topics from mail-in voting to aberrant election results – arguably core protected speech – that the public-private partnership flagged to social media platforms for censorship, much of which the platforms would suppress.

Hammer & Leibsohn: Free Speech Sense and Sensibility

It is precious to see so many college administrators, deans, and presidents now honing “principled,” absolutist commitments to freedom of speech on their campuses. When campuses were hosting Dennis Prager, Charles Murray, Charlie Kirk, or Riley Gaines, or even federal appellate court judges, the messages that used to ban or chase them off campus were “hate has no home here” or “the juice is not worth the squeeze.” Defamatory characterizations on the part of biased third parties such as the SPLC against these speakers as “white nationalists”—or worse—were used as evidence that they should not be protected. “Hate speech is not protected speech” became the bray of leftist academics and legislators across the whole country. To anyone even marginally familiar with First Amendment doctrine, “hate speech” has long been held to be constitutionally protected speech, because, in the absence of a direct and specific threat of violence, it has no easily defined and applicable legal standard. Legally speaking, hate speech does not exist.

Sundance: President Trump Attorney Alina Habba Describes the Issues Within the Courtroom in New York City as President Trump Delivered Expert Testimony

Alina Habba appears with Larry Kudlow to describe the events that took place within the courtroom as President Trump delivered expert testimony on real estate, property evaluations and the financial statement he signed. As Ms. Habba notes, President Trump was delivering a masterclass in New York real estate that ran counter to the narrative created by the Lawfare group.  Judge Engoron wanted to silence President Trump during his testimony as the evidence ran counter to the effort and showed President Trump’s business acumen.

Eretelt: Ohio passes Issue 1 to allow killing babies in abortions up to birth

Ohio voters approved Issue 1 tonight after a monumental abortion battle in the Buckeye State. With 57 percent of the vote counted, Ohio voted 56% to 44% for Issue 1, which will make killing babies in abortions a so-called “right” in the state constitution. The result was not surprising given how abortion advocates bought the vote. Also, Ohio voters also voted today on a ballot measure to legalize marijuana. That very likely increased turnout of liberal voters who were more likely to vote for abortion. […] The Associated Press (AP) reported Thursday that since September 8, the pro-abortion “yes” side in the referendum has raised almost three times more money than the pro-life “no” side: $29 million compared to less than $10 million. AP indicated that “the largest donations” supporting the pro-abortion “yes” campaign came from outside of Ohio. This included “three gifts totaling $5.3 million from the progressive Sixteen Thirty Fund, based in Washington, D.C.” […] As radical abortion activists promote Issue 1, which would allow abortions up to birth, they have also been targeting churches that are opposing it. Catholic schools, churches and cemeteries across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, for example, have posted in recent weeks that they have been victims of vandalism and attacks. Pro-abortion extremists have stolen, defaced or damages No on Issue 1 signs at pro-life business that are displaying them. And pro-life residents have experienced the same sorta of vandalism of their lawn signs on private residences.

Whedon: In bad night for Youngkin, Virginia Democrats win full control of Legislature

Democrats held the Virginia state Senate and won back control of the state House, dealing a double blow to Virginia GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin and the Old Dominion GOP. As of Tuesday evening, the Associated Press had called 20 Senate races for Democrats and that party’s candidates led in at least one additional race, meaning the party would retain control of the 40-seat chamber. In the lower chamber, the AP had projected 46 seats for the Democrats, whose candidates led in six other races as of press time. [NOTE: As of 7am this morning, Republican David Owen is leading nurse and online prn star Democrat Susanna Gibson 17,878 to 16,912 votes.]

Mittlestadt: Pennsylvania county voting machines flipping votes for superior court retention races

Voting machines in a Pennsylvania county are flipping votes for elections regarding whether two state appeals court judges should be retained, according to county officials. Tuesday is Election Day in Pennsylvania for judicial positions and county, local, and municipal offices. However, county officials said that electronic voting machines are flipping votes in Northampton County for deciding whether Pennsylvania Superior Court Judges Jack Panella and Victor Stabile should remain on the bench for additional 10-year terms.

ABC News: Democrats pad their majority on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court

Per the AP, Democrat Dan McCaffery will defeat Republican Carolyn Carluccio in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court race, winning around 53 percent to 47 percent of the vote. The outcome of this race won’t change party control of the seven-member court, but Democrats will pad their current 4-2 majority by filling a vacant seat.

Mangold-Lenett: Biden’s AI Executive Order Accelerates Leftist Domination Of New Technology

President Biden signed an executive order last Monday purportedly attempting to strike a balance between innovation and regulation of artificial intelligence (AI). In actuality, the order further enables the left’s mad dash toward ideologically capturing the most important technological advancement of the 21st century while also calling for the implementation of regulations that “mitigat[e]” the “substantial risks” AI presents. Using the Defense Production Act, the order increases federal oversight and regulatory scrutiny of the industry by creating new reporting requirements and interagency coordination in handling AI. It also calls for the development of new technical standards and tools for the evaluation of AI systems. The order further calls for AI companies to . . .

Herland: The Federal Reserve Cartel – Eight Families own the USA #BIS, IMF, World Bank

Who owns the Federal Reserve? They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome. Many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe. The US government had a historical distrust of BIS, lobbying unsuccessfully for its demise at the 1944 post-WWII Bretton Woods Conference. Instead the Eight Families’ power was exacerbated, with the Bretton Woods creation of the IMF and the World Bank. Bretton Woods became a boon to the Eight Families. The IMF and World Bank were central to this “new world order”, writes Dean Henderson at The Herland Report and Free21. The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths.

Ibrahim: How the billionaire elite manipulates the world

What is ultimately behind so many of the (manufactured) ills currently plaguing the West, from leftist lunacy and gender insanity to unnecessary lockdowns and wars? In a word, the ultra-rich — the billionaire elite.  So argues bestselling author Hanne Nabintu Herland in her latest book, The Billionaire World: How Marxism Serves the Elite. In a series of brisk chapters, Herland — a historian of religions and founder of The Herland Report — traces all the world’s major problems back to the billionaire elite and their use of Marxist repression and social engineering.

While this may seem counterintuitive, Herland makes — and documents — several powerful arguments. […] There is much more to recommend Herland’s Billionaire World. Almost every pressing topic — including the politicization of science, the rise of (openly Marxist) groups such as Black Lives Matter (BLM), the global persecution of Christians, the stoking of racial tensions, and the rewriting of history — is connected to the overlooked role of the billionaire elites and their self-serving agendas.

Romano: House poised to defund EPA carbon endangerment finding in amendment by U.S. Rep. Eric Burlison, affirming West Virginia v. EPA and restoring Article I lawmaking power

The U.S. House Rules Committee has made in order an amendment by U.S. Rep. Eric Burlison (R-Mo.) that would defund the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) carbon endangerment finding enacted in 2009 by the Obama administration that arbitrarily defined carbon dioxide as a pollutant under the terms of the Clean Air Act. That finding was all but overturned by the Supreme Court’s 2022 West Virginia v. EPA decision that struck down the 2015 Obama Clean Power Plan, which did overturn the Court’s 2007 decision, Massachusetts v. EPA, a narrow 5-4 ruling by then-Justice Anthony Kennedy that had opened the door for federal regulation of carbon emissions and set the stage for the carbon endangerment finding and the Clean Power Plan’s rules on new and existing power plants. […] . . . as Roberts ultimately ruled, Congress never authorized the EPA to pursue such a goal, writing, “our precedent counsels skepticism toward EPA’s claim that Section 111 empowers it to devise carbon emissions caps based on a generation shifting approach. To overcome that skepticism, the Government must—under the major questions doctrine—point to ‘clear congressional authorization’ to regulate in that manner.” Because there was no such Congressional authorization, the regulatory scheme was legally baseless. And now Congress can close the gap once and for all—even if the damage has already been done to U.S. economy.

Killough: Critics warn that Biden’s hydrogen initiative could become next green energy boondoggle

nother spoke in President Joe Biden’s climate policy wheel is the production of hydrogen, which was referred to as a “key pillar of Bidenomics” in an announcement $7 billion in funding for hydrogen hubs across the country. Other troubled green initiatives Biden has been rolling out include the development of offshore wind energy and the widespread adoption of electric vehicles. This past month both the offshore wind and the electric vehicle industries have seen significant losses as a result of problems that experts, such as energy writer Robert Bryce and Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Mark Mills, have long been warning about. Some experts are warning that the plan to replace fossil fuels with hydrogen is just as lacking in forethought and economic sensibility as EV mandates and offshore wind development. “We’re going to completely buy a hydrogen economy with your federal tax dollars. It’s just loony,” Steve Goreham, an energy researcher and author of “Green Breakdown,” told Just The News. […] Hydrogen produces no carbon dioxide when burned. […] Hydrogen, however, is not itself an energy source: It’s an energy carrier.

Lendrum: Biden IRS Begins Audit into Conservative Organization that Opposed Administration Nominees

“This sudden request by the IRS is not random,” said Tom Jones, the President of AAF, in a statement. “The IRS is demanding ‘[c]orrespondence files, emails and information posted on a website that relates to current public elected officials’ – clearly a sign that they are targeting our research and education activities. It’s a deliberate attempt to punish and suppress AAF’s activities. It is surely no coincidence that AAF—the very organization that exposed the weaponization of the IRS—is now the target of it.”

Revolver.news: The FBI just unleashed a sinister new recruitment tactic that should scare every American…

If you think the FBI has a bias against conservatives, hold onto your hats. With their latest recruitment drive at LGBTQ Pride events, it seems they’re ready to escalate their efforts. […] The question many are asking is why the FBI is targeting homosexual communities for recruitment rather than casting a wider net across college campuses, like they have in the recent past. Are they creating a vast army of tranissaries? The agency’s new recruitment tactics raise serious questions that should alarm every American, regardless of political affiliation.

Spencer: Tlaib Fights Censure with Lies

Facing censure in the House of Representatives over her antisemitism and thinly veiled support for Hamas, the Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Ramallah) is fighting back using a strategy that Islamic spokesmen in the West have frequently favored over the years: she’s lying. This shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone: in the book that those spokesmen and Tlaib consider to be holy, lying to infidels is specifically allowed for when one is cornered. And if anyone is cornered right now, it’s Rashida Tlaib. […] So what is Tlaib doing claiming now that she has repeatedly denounced Hamas’ targeting of civilians? It’s simple: she is lying. And that lying is firmly within the bounds of what is acceptable behavior according to the Qur’an on which she was sworn in. The Islamic holy book says: “Let not the believers take unbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoever does that has no connection with Allah unless you are guarding yourselves against them, taking security.” (3:28)

Olohan: EXCLUSIVE: House Speaker Mike Johnson Opens Up About Intersection of Faith, Politics

The new speaker of the House of Representatives opened up about his Christian faith and how it informs his politics in an interview with The Daily Signal, in which he stressed the importance of treating political opponents with dignity and respect while adhering to fundamental truths. Speaker Mike Johnson discussed the Christian principles of America’s Founding Fathers, the greatest moral threat he perceives to society, double standards in the media when reporting on the religion of Republicans versus Democrats, support for Israel, and more. […] Government as a Design of God

“I don’t believe there are any coincidences,” Johnson said in remarks to Congress, delivered minutes after he was chosen as the new speaker Oct. 25. “I believe that the Bible is very clear that God has ordained and allowed each one us to be brought here for this specific moment and this time.”

He explained to The Daily Signal that some media misconstrued the statement and portrayed it as self-aggrandizing.  “It wasn’t that at all,” he said. “It’s a central premise of the Bible that God invented civil government.” Like many Americans of faith, Johnson sees government . . . […] Greatest Moral Threat to Our Culture: Asked what he believes is the greatest of those societal ills facing the United States currently, specifically in a moral context, Johnson responded: “The lack of belief in absolute truths.” “We live in an age of . . .

Boose: Mike Johnson: MAGA champion or RINO?

The new House Speaker, Mike Johnson (La.), is a well-spoken man with an affable demeanor. But what lies beneath the gentlemanly mien? Is there a “Christian nationalist” just waiting to crawl out? Or is he another “RINO” in disguise, perhaps? It is usually wise to bet against the hysteria of the liberal press. The left-wing rag Salon only somewhat exaggerated the consensus by declaring Johnson a “bigger threat to America than Hamas could ever be.” Democrats are plugging the same message: Johnson is a “MAGA extremist” with a radical, religiously infused agenda. On the right, the obloquy of the media is often a badge of honor. No one understands that better than the restlessly provocative Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who paved the way for Johnson’s sudden rise from obscurity. The evangelical backbencher is every bit the scary right-winger that the liberals say he is, if we take Gaetz at his word. Johnson means business. He is not one of those “uniparty” swamp creatures like Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Or is he?

Charles: Rolling Stone Drops Bombshell Exposé on Mike Johnson, Reveals He Doesn’t Watch Pornography

Brace yourself, dear reader. Rolling Stone magazine has published a bombshell report exposing newly-minted House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) for – not watching pornography. That’s right, folks. In this latest episode of “Let’s Get Outraged Over Silliness,” the alleged news outlet published a piece detailing how he and his son keep each other accountable for the material they view on the internet. In an article published on Sunday, Rolling Stone highlighted a post on X, formerly Twitter, showing a video clip in which Johnson explains that he and his son use an app called Covenant Eyes to help the speaker and his son refrain from watching inappropriate material. After this earth-shattering revelation, which was the result of some hard-hitting journalism on Rolling Stone’s part, the world now knows that Johnson does not watch porn, which is a likely disappointment to folks on the left who would relish the opportunity to use something of this nature to smear him.

Ross:  HAMAS AND MORE: The Obama Files

Editor’s note: This was originally published more than 15 years ago — in March 2008 — after researching then-candidate Obama. Raised in a broken home, his stepfather was a Muslim. As Barack grew up, he increasingly consorted with supporters of Islamic terrorism. Exhibit A: his decades-long relationship with a Hamas-supporting pastor named Jeremiah Wright. Wright amplified the mission of Hamas: to eradicate the Jews. He gave a prominent Hamas figure publicity in his popular church newsletter. Wright also befriended the likes of Louis Farrakhan and Muammar Gaddafi. As one pundit summarized it, “Obama marinated in two decades of Jew hatred” at Wright’s church. Maybe someday we’ll get to the bottom of Obama’s zeal for funding the extermination of Jews. March 22, 2008 In addition to the controversial and racially divisive sermons of his decades-long “spiritual advisor”, Barack Obama’s closely guarded relationships with terror apologists are beginning to surface. Here are six things every American should know: let us shed light on Obama’s true beliefs regarding the scourge of extremist terror. Obama’s church publishes Hamas manifesto  1: In July 2007 Obama’s friend and mentor — Rev. Jeremiah Wright — published a Hamas manifesto in the Trinity Church newsletter. Front and center on the “Pastor’s Page” was a hateful tome written by a prominent Hamas official. […] Regarding terror apologists, Obama changed his views “to get Jewish donors and votes”  2Debbie Schussel highlights Obama’s attendance of a 1998 “Arab community event”, presumably a fundraiser for the Palestinian cause. […] “Obama’s about-face is not surprising. He is [doing what] is necessary to get elected…” 3Ali Abunimah, writing at Electronic Intifida, states that Obama is shielding his true feelings regarding Israel from the public…The last time I spoke to Obama was in the winter of 2004 . . .

Kaufman: CAIR Leaders Shill for Hamas in American Media, Reporters Cooperate

As Israel continues to respond with force to the heinous October 7th attack perpetrated by Hamas terrorists who raped young women, kidnapped children, and burned families alive, television journalists try to demonstrate their objectivity by soliciting responses from Muslim leaders in the United States. In their effort to be evenhanded, they speak with leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization with deep and enduring ties to Hamas, the designated terrorist organization that perpetrated the October 7 massacre. CAIR is an offshoot of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was founded by Hamas operatives using seed money from a Hamas charity called the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), whose leaders were convicted in 2008 of providing material support for Hamas. As documented by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, CAIR was listed as a unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial as part of a campaign to “advance the Hamas agenda within the United States.” […] Reporters should stay well away from CAIR, Sean Durns, senior research analyst at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA), told Focus on Western Islamism. “The media has long provided cover for CAIR, a faux civil rights organization with a long history of both extremism and antisemitism,” he said. “Reporters should note that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the largest terrorism finance trials in U.S. history and several CAIR employees and lay leaders have been arrested and/or deported on terrorism related charges.”

Tobin: From the River to the Sea? Arab Citizens of Israel Say, No Thanks to ‘Liberation’

Among Arab Israelis, prominent media personalities have helped lead an unprecedented surge in support for their country and opposition to their self-proclaimed liberator Hamas. Pro-Israel arguments that were previously almost unspeakable in the Arab mainstream have in recent weeks gotten a respectful hearing. Yoseph Haddad, a 38-year-old Christian Arab influencer, has skyrocketed to fame in Israel with his outspoken advocacy for the country in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Haddad told CNN on Oct. 22 that Hamas’s attack was a wakeup call for the Arabs who constitute about 20 percent of Israel’s population. “We literally felt that Hamas could have conquered the south and then the center and also the north of Israel, where the majority of Arab Israelis are staying, and we had a very bad feeling about it,” said Haddad, who has more than 1.5 million followers across social media. “Immediately my friends and colleagues here said, ‘That’s the last thing that we want. We don’t want to live under a terrorist organization. We want to live in a democracy, and that’s what the state of Israel is.’”

Glick: Why are the Oct. 7 atrocities being denied?

Just as neo-Nazis both celebrate the Holocaust and deny it, so do those who rapturously greeted the stories of slaughtered and decapitated Jewish babies and men, and raped and dismembered Jewish women and girls, insist that Hamas didn’t commit any of those crimes. A notable aspect of the atrocities is that Hamas’s mass murderers didn’t try to hide them. Instead, they broadcast them worldwide as they carried them out. Armed with Go Pro cameras and the cellphones of their victims, the Palestinian terrorists in southern Israel filmed the rape, dismemberment, torture and execution of their victims on their victims’ own phones, posting them in their victims’ family WhatsApp groups and Facebook pages as they carried them out. They did the same with their own social-media platforms. No one needed researchers to comb through Hamas archives. The directions for the slaughter were found in documents that the terrorists carried with them into Israel. So why are supporters of Hamas tearing down posters of kidnapped Israeli children, women and men being held hostage in the Gaza Strip?

Vespa: Ex-Muslim Points Out One Figure That Shreds the False Gaza Genocide Narrative

First, let’s get this out of the way: Israel isn’t committing genocide in Gaza. They don’t target civilians; that’s Hamas. Hamas has kept 2 million people as human shields against their will as they hide in their terror tunnels below. Those Gazans who have tried to flee, reading the warnings Israeli forces have dropped for weeks, they’re gunned down by the terrorists. […] With the Left convinced that Israelis are killing Gazans intentionally—again, a total lie—one ex-Muslim shreds that narrative with a single tweet. It’s a lengthy one, but Harris Sultan points out the hypocrisy in the lefty outrage over the alleged Israeli genocide in Gaza, pointing out that no one cared when the Saudi Arabians were allegedly committing egregious acts against Yemeni civilians. Also, where were the mass protests when Syria gassed its people? Sultan’s post appears to be based on a discussion he had with his moderate Muslim father, who was appalled by the images of dead children in Gaza, asking his son why he was supporting “genocide.” When informed of past acts where Arabs were killing Arabs, like in Yemen, he said he disagreed with what Saudi Arabia did. Sultan replied, “How convenient” for you. The Arab world goes silent when other Arabs kill their own but lose their minds when Israel defends itself in the aftermath of a vicious terror attack. Sultan points out that such intense reactions can only be driven by hatred of Jews:  . . .

The Foreign Desk: Women in Israel are Arming Themselves in Wake of Terror Attacks

The head of the Israeli weapons training school Caliber 3, Sharon Gat, told the newspaper, “Since October 7, many women have been coming to Caliber 3 to get licenses and train.” He further described the reason for the increase, “because a lot of women go out alone, live alone, or are at home alone while their husbands are away.” Gat said that the rise in the number of women seeking pistol permits was in the “hundreds of percentages.” […] Typically, to obtain a gun license in Israel an applicant must . . . […] Earlier this year, Israel’s national security minister Itamar Ben Gvir, recommended easing the historically strict rules, citing the need for individuals to protect themselves during terrorist attacks. The minister proposed . . . […] On Oct. 8, Ben Gvir announced that in response to the massacre of civilians by Hamas there would be further liberalization of the nation’s gun laws, “in order to allow as many citizens as possible to arm themselves.”

Revolver.news: Crash Landing: The Inside Scoop About How Covid and Affirmative Action Policy Gutted Aviation Safety

The recent accident in Houston is just the latest noteworthy instance in what a major New York Times investigation this summer determined to be “an alarming pattern of safety lapses and near misses in the skies and on the runways in the USA.” According to internal records of the Federal Aviation Agency, the Times reported that these safety lapses and near misses occurred as a “result of human error.” The Times report further revealed that “runway incursions” of the sort described above have nearly doubled, from 987 to 1732, despite the widespread proliferation of advanced technologies.

Prager: American Jews on the Left Are Just Shocked by Their Fellow Leftists

Left-wing American Jews feel betrayed by the Left. A Left that remains anti-Israel even after the greatest single-day massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, and even though most Palestinians and their supporters explicitly call for the destruction of the Jewish state: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” Progressive American Jews are shocked by their fellow progressives. But the only thing that is shocking is their shock. The Left wing has been calling for an economic boycott of Israel for decades and has labeled Israel an “apartheid” state. The Left labels America, the most tolerant, multiethnic society in history, “systemically racist.”

Dershowitz: Today’s Nazis Are Hamas

Among the groups that have supported the rapes, beheadings, burning alive, mass murder and kidnappings of Jews by Hamas have been some that purport to speak for gays, Jews, feminists and progressives. If any of these groups were actually to travel to Gaza, they would be murdered by Hamas.

Hamas has no tolerance for gays, Jews, feminists or progressives. Indeed, among the people beheaded, raped, murdered and kidnapped were gays, Jews who support Palestinians, feminists, progressives and non-Jews. None of that matters to Hamas. If you are a Jew or an Israeli or just happen to be in the way, you are a target of their barbarity. […] Among the most hypocritical supporters of Hamas are “Gays for Gaza.” Rainbow flags and posters identifying the protesters as gay were rampant at anti-Israel demonstrations calling for the end of that nation. In Gaza, such signs are illegal. Anyone displaying them would be killed, as was Hamas commander Mahmoud Ishtiwi, who was caught having sex with another man, and promptly tortured and killed. […] Today’s Nazis are Hamas. Today’s enablers of Nazism are the students and others who support Hamas. History will judge them the way history has judged Nazi collaborators.

Christoph: WATCH: Unhinged Leftist Voter Has Embarrassing Melt Down When Greeted by GOP Poll Worker

Here’s the beginning of this maniac’s rant: “You might have been, as I was walking up to the polling station, you might as well have been putting a gun up to my head and telling me not to vote. You expect me not to take that f&cking personally? You f&cking try to overthrow elections with violence? And then you’re out here amongst decent people?” He was offered a sample ballot. A sample ballot. Along with a nice greeting. As he walked away, he turned back around, pointing his finger in the greeter’s face, seething: “You f&cking animal.

Bashinsky: Female ‘terrorist’ is arrested for plowing her car into building she thought was a Jewish school while children were inside because she was ‘offended by a Hebrew Israelite symbol’

Ruba Almaghtheh, 34, crashed her vehicle into the Black Hebrew Israelite building  that had children inside on North Keystone Ave in Indianapolis at 11.30pm Friday. […] Almaghtheh, originally from Jordan, told cops that she had been watching the news and ‘couldn’t breathe anymore,’ after referencing ‘her people’ in Palestine, Fox59/CBS4 reported. She told the authorities that she has passed the building several times prior to Friday’s attack and referred to it as an ‘Israel school’ and then admitted to the heinous act telling police: ‘Yes, I did it on purpose.’

Yeatman: San Francisco worker posts terrifying walk past drug-addled homeless people passed out on the sidewalk in the city’s Tenderloin district

The terrifying reality of life on San Francisco’s drug-ravaged streets has been laid bare by one life-long resident who filmed her walk to work through scenes that have made the city an international symbol for squalor and despair. Tiktoker ‘Freqmeek’ captured the pre-dawn horror as she gingerly picked her way through dozens of desperate addicts in the city’s Tenderloin district. Some are hunched against the cold while others are too intoxicated to care as cars and buses try to steer a path through unconscious addicts sprawled across the road for hundreds of yards.

‘The anxiety we experience just traveling to work daily in the Tenderloin is unbelievable,’ she wrote. ‘There are so many concerns and protections in place for drug users and homeless people but what about the working class that have to pray that they make it to and from work in this environment.

Smythe: ‘After Death’ Becomes Highest Grossing Documentary Since 2019, And We Know Why

Have you ever wondered what happens after you die? If you answered “no,” then you’re a liar, but that’s okay. All of us sin sometimes. But how much of that sin dictates what happens once our physical bodies fail and we’re launched into the next chapter of our existence? While the complete answer will never be known to a living human, the documentary “After Death” gets pretty close to filling in the gaps of our understanding of life after death. If you haven’t seen the full film yet, please stop whatever you’re doing and go see it now. It will change your life in ways you never dreamed were possible.

Spencer: The UK STILL Hasn’t Come to Grips With its Grooming Gang Scandal

The National Pulse reportedWednesday that Charlene Downes “disappeared after falling victim to Muslim groomers in the seaside resort of Blackpool.” Two owners of a Blackpool kebab shop, Iyad Albattikhi and Mohammed Raveshi, were put on trial for her murder, but Charlene’s grieving family would receive no justice: neither Albattikhi nor Raveshi nor anyone else was ever convicted of murdering Charlene. […]  Why did so many of these suspected pedophile rapists escape prosecution? Because British police and other authorities were terrified of being called “racist” or “Islamophobic.”
