NOTABLE QUOTES

Jordon Boyd contributor to The Federalist: While the Department of Justice works overtime to imprison top political foe and 2024 presidential poll leader, former President Donald Trump, over mishandling classified documents, Special Counsel Robert Hur plans to let President Joe Biden off scot-free.

Micah Meadowcroft contributor to The American Conservative: The goal is clear: to make unapologetic conservative Christianity unacceptable in public life. Mike Johnson is being called a Christian nationalist because, while he may not identify as such, he is one, according to the progressive frame. So long as progressives control the frame of Christian nationalism, they can suggest it is disqualifying. One response is to own it, for evangelicals to redefine it for themselves; that conversation is happening. But to wrest the frame from those who hate conservative Christians participating in politics, who will call you a Christian nationalist no matter what you say, the first step is to not care.

Ben Voth contributor to American Thinker: Osama Bin Laden was unworthy of the proper Islamic burial he was afforded by U.S. military forces that captured and killed him in the nation of Pakistan that was hiding him in 2011. It is an unfortunate shame that among the many sins of our American educational system, one must include the current minds venting on Tik Tok that their ‘eyes have been opened’ by Bin Laden’s letter to America. Such foolish ravings are what impressed young fools in Germany who read Mein Kampf and found themselves ready to unleash one of humanity’s most dreadful crimes: The Holocaust.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine warns about Tik Tok: Giving Hollywood and public school teachers control of our kids was a bad idea. Giving Chinese Communist algorithms control over our kids is a much worse idea.

Richard C. Lyons contributor to American Thinker: In the vast reaches of Arabia, Moses was adopted by Muhammad into Islam as one of the greatest prophets—but under Islam, the laws of Moses do not ultimately protect his people, the Jews, from the sacrifice demanded by Muslims. Under Muhammed’s law, the Jews must renounce the right to their faith or they must die for it. Under the tenets of Islam, neither Jews nor anyone else have rights beneath Islam’s absolute claims, not even to that life protected by the laws of one of their foremost prophets, Moses.

Anonymous contributor to The Federalist: If you have a daughter, you have a daughter. Her preferred clothing and activities do not define her, particularly when she’s young. Maybe she just finds pants more comfortable or likes playing in the dirt more than playing with a Barbie. If you let her grow up as a girl, those preferences may stick or they may, as in our case, shift in more traditionally feminine ways. In either case, it is not our job as parents to guide them toward self-destruction, but toward self-fulfillment and flourishing.

Edward J. Erler contributor to The American Mind: We should have been prepared for the praise of the morality of cannibalism. I, for one, have been prepared for it for years. Friends, casual acquaintances, and bystanders have endured my discussions, sometimes polemics and even screeds, on how the result of progressive thought would ultimately be cannibalism. All those many years ago, it sounded utterly fantastic, but when I first heard the claims from anthropologists and other social scientists that opposition to cannibalism was merely western food aversion—in other words, an irrational prejudice—I knew that cannibalism was coming.

Samuel Margold-Linett contributor to The Federalist: In case you were unaware, we are in the middle of Transgender Awareness Week. The week preceding Thanksgiving (an antiquated Christofacist tradition), cities, corporations, and citizens alike are compelled to celebrate America’s new priestly caste, culminating in the high holy day of Transgender Day of Remembrance on Nov. 20. Genuflections, child sacrifice, and, of course, awareness abound during this November, which also happens to be Trans Awareness Month. The stated goals of Transgender Awareness Week, Transgender Day of Awareness, and Trans Awareness Month are to “celebrate” trans-identifying individuals and to “educate” the public about the supposed onslaught of violence being perpetrated against them.

Duffy-Alfonso: The NSA Is Indoctrinating Employees With Radical Gender Ideology, Anti-White Racism, And America Hatred

The National Security Agency (NSA) created an entire glossary of woke words and concepts for employees, such as “anti-racist” and neopronouns like“ze” and “zir,” according to an exclusive report from Daily Wire journalist Spencer Lindquist. The NSA’s 35-page Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Glossary was released to employees on May 6th, 2022, but was recently made available to the public after a leak. The glossary’s stated purpose is to “provide a starting point for engaging in open and honest conversation, and is a tool meant to build a shared language of understanding.” In other words, the NSA, in addition to collecting data on American citizens, is brainwashing its employees with radical leftist ideology and facilitating woke struggle sessions during work hours. […] According to the NSA, there are “levels of privilege” based on how well transgender people are “recognized as their correct gender.” The NSA describes an individual’s delusions of identifying in opposition to biological reality as living with his or her “correct gender.” The NSA also schools readers on sensitivity and frequently flags “problematic” language. For example, “sex change” is “an outdated and often offensive term,” and “homosexual … is not a preferred term” because “Homosexual males typically prefer the term gay and homosexual females typically prefer the term lesbian.” The NSA does not explain how any of this is relevant to national security. Aside from bizarre sex and gender verbiage, the glossary promotes racist rhetoric, such as the term “white fragility,” . . .

Rosiak: A Satanist Pedophile Gang Is Torturing Kids. The FBI Didn’t Seem To Care Unless It Could Blame White Supremacy.

A Satan-worshipping cult of pedophiles is blackmailing girls into cutting themselves — but the FBI didn’t seem interested in that so much as the fact that one of its members once used the n-word, a Daily Wire investigation found. For years, the group known both as 764 and Harm Nation has tortured what is believed to be hundreds or thousands of girls. But the FBI didn’t put its cybercrimes or violence-against-children investigators on it. Instead, its interest appears to have piqued mainly by the fact that the group — most of whose victims are white teens — was once racist to a black girl. The domestic terrorism unit is investigating the Satanist pedophiles for white-supremacy RMVE, or “racially motivated violent extremism” — even though the sole known arrest by the FBI is a Hispanic man who called the judge a “cracker” in court, according to court records and interviews.

(Only one arrest when six officers were injured.) Greenfield: Mostly Peaceful ‘Ceasefire’ Protester Arrested for Punching Female Officer in the Face

IfNotNow and JVP, the anti-Israel hate groups, acting as the human shields for the pro-Hamas rioters know what their job is. To get sympathetic women in front of the cameras and scream that they’re Jewish activists calling for a ceasefire. And then the actual thugs go to work. The statement from the Capitol Police about the pro-Hamas DNC riot demolishes the narrative in more than one way. Six officers were treated for injuries, from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched. 24-year old Ruben Arthur Camacho of Woodbridge, NY, was arrested for Assault on a Police Officer after an officer witnessed Camacho slam another officer into a garage door and then punch the female officer in the face. I’m going to guess that Ruben Camacho probably isn’t Jewish. And I’m skeptical that he cares much about Gaza.

Mills: Energy Realities at the Nexus of Techno-Optimism

The one thing though, that won’t be different in the future, regardless of the technology vision, is the central animating role of energy. The physics of energy ties everything together. That’s also true for the themes at this year’s COSM summit: the unleashing of AI “into the wild,” the prospects for graphene as an entirely new and revolutionary class of material, and the role of China on the world stage. […] Energy is consumed by every invention, product and, derivatively, service that makes life interesting, safe, convenient, enjoyable, even beautiful. And, over all of history innovators have found vastly more ways to invent things that consume energy than to produce energy. The invention of materials like alloys, or polymers, or pharmaceuticals, or single-crystal silicon, led to new energy demands for their fabrication. Similarly the invention of machines built from those materials, like the car, or airplane, or the computer, led to new energy demands. The ineluctable energetics of nature are epitomized by the fact that our information machines themselves have become monstrously energy hungry.  All software, even virtual reality itself, requires the reality of electricity-consuming machines to instantiate logic. That may sound self-evident, but the consequence of that fact means that today, roughly speaking, the global cloud uses as much energy as global aviation. And the former is growing far faster than the latter. Which brings us to the AI at the epicenter of this Summit– an entirely new way to put silicon engines to work. While AI has been around for quite a while, November 30, 2022, when ChatGPT went live to the public, will be remembered as the date that AI was released into the wild. AI is the most energy-intensive use of silicon ever devised.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Widburg: It’s time to prosecute America’s new generation of al Qaeda lovers for treason

One of the most disgusting trends that has followed Hamas’s murderous attack against Israel and Israel’s response is a bold new respect for Osama bin Laden and, of course, by extension, for al Qaeda itself. What these new al Qaeda followers might not know is that we’re still at war with that terrorist organization, and they’re giving aid and comfort to a combatant against America, which is, by definition, treason and, technically, punishable by death. […] There is a whole body of American laws dealing with war. One of those laws involves treason, which is the only criminal offense defined in the Constitution itself, at Art. III, section 3, clause 1: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. In 1917, Charles Warren took to the pages of the Yale Law Review to offer a definitive explanation of how the laws of treason work in America. Warren writes […] Where I’m going with all of this is that the latest TikTok trend (clearly fomented by our geopolitical enemy, China) is to praise bin Laden’s motive in launching al Qaeda’s attacks on America on September 11, 2001. One of the reasons bin Laden gave was that America supported Israel: […] Given that we’re still engaged in an active war against bin Laden’s organization, what these people are doing is the equivalent of walking around in 1944 praising Hitler and Tojo, telling people that Japan and Germany are right, and urging America’s surrender.

Dini: China Coal Wrecks Havoc on Climate Goals

China is building new coal power so fast that energy transition by the West is meaningless. Even if the US went completely off coal tomorrow, its plants would be more than replaced. (1) There are a total of 3,092 operating coal plant units in China. As of January 2023 the province of Shandong, which lies to the south of Beijing, houses the greatest number of coal power plants, at over 400 units. The construction of 106 gigawatts of coal fired power was approved last year–four times more than in 2021 China permitted more coal power plants last year than any time in the last seven years. The country quadrupled the amount of new coal power approvals in 2022 compared to 2021. All this despite the fact that much of the world is getting off coal. (2) Already permitted coal power projects set China up for a 23% increase in coal fired power capacity by 2027. If projects that are currently in the preparation stage but not yet permitted get a green light, the increase could reach 33% by2029. The construction of 106 gigawatts of coal fired power was approved last year–four times more than in 2021 and the highest amount since 2015. This is eqivalent to about a hundred large coal fired plants and enough to supply the whole of Britain. (3)

China burns more coal every year than the rest of the world combined.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF FOREIGN POLICY

Raleigh: Biden Fell For China’s Empty-Promises Playbook At The San Francisco Summit

President Biden wants Americans to believe his meeting with Xi Jinping was successful. But in truth, the U.S. gained nothing.[…] Leading up to the APEC meeting, Xi had a weak hand, while the leverage was on the U.S. side. China’s economic growth has slowed down significantly. Its once high-flying property sector crashed and exports dropped. The youth unemployment rate reached 22 percent in June 2023 before Beijing stopped publishing the data altogether out of fear of causing public panic. Foreign firms have pulled billions out of China, concerned over its weak economy, hostile regulatory environment, and geopolitical tensions with the U.S. China risks prolonged economic stagnation as consumers are unwilling to spend money due to financial and political uncertainty. In contrast, the U.S. economy grew almost 5 percent in the third quarter despite facing its own challenges, such as inflation and ballooning national debt. Since China needs American companies’ investments and technologies to revive its weak economy, Biden could have waited for Xi to plead for a summit and used it as leverage to demand some behavioral changes from China. Preconditions could have been that China’s military stops its harassment of Taiwan and the Philippines in the South China Sea, or no more funding Russia and Iran’s geopolitical aggressions by purchasing their oil. Sadly, Biden and his foreign policy team are known to turn U.S. leverage into weakness by focusing on the wrong priorities. For example, . . .

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA

(Of course not) Goodin: Biden NOT expected to face criminal charges for mishandling classified documents – after 11 month investigation that included an interview with son Hunter and hundreds of aides

President Joe Biden is not expected to face charges in his mishandling of classified documents case. But Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report is expected to be sharply critical of how Biden and his longtime aides handled the material, the Wall Street Journal reported. Hur interviewed about 100 people, including the president himself, Hunter Biden, and the president’s aides and colleagues. The documents date back to Biden’s time in the Senate and to when he was Barack Obama’s vice president. They were found at Penn Biden Center, a private think tank Biden once ran, and his Wilmington, Del., home in the same garage where Biden keeps his Corvette.

I & I Editorial Board: Two Words Describe Biden’s Presidency:  Reckless Endangerment

This week we’ve been treated to three government reports that all point in the same direction: Disaster. Interest payments are through the roof. Real wages continue to fall. And a record number of illegals crossed the border. That’s just the domestic news. As of this writing, Americans are being held hostage by Iran-supported Hamas terrorists who killed nearly two dozen other Americans when they invaded Israel. Our military forces face increasing Iranian-sponsored attacks in Iraq and Syria. While President Joe Biden lets Iran off the sanctions hook for another four months. The worry isn’t just whether Biden – the architect of these disasters – will be voted out of office next year. It’s whether the U.S. can survive until then. Start with the terrible news on the home front. On Monday, the Treasury Department released its monthly financial report, and it was alarming. In October alone, the government made $76 billion in net interest payments – a 77% increase from a year ago and a 153% jump from two years ago.

Duffy-Alfons: Biden Judicial Nominee Pledged To Ignore Oklahoma Abortion Law — Then Lied About It To Congress

Oklahoma district judge nominee Sara Hill apparently lied about her previous pledge to ignore state abortion laws on Cherokee Nation land following the historic Dobbs v. Jackson ruling. Hill, a Cherokee herself, was previously attorney general of the Cherokee Nation. During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked Hill whether she had said that she “had no intent to enforce the law post-Dobbs.” Hill responded by claiming she “never said that.” However, video footage from her time as attorney general demonstrates otherwise. […] Despite Wednesday’s shameful hearing, Biden is not done making diversity nominations. That same day, the president announced five more federal judicial nominees — three of which are “diversity” picks. Nicole Berner, a lesbian and the general counsel of the Service Employees International Union, was nominated for the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. If confirmed, she would be that court’s first openly homosexual judge. Adeel Mangi, nominated for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, would be the first Muslim-American circuit court judge if confirmed. Nominee Cristal Brisco would be the first black female U.S. district court judge in the Northern District of Indiana.

White House counsel Ed Siskel bragged that the nominees are “four women, two nominees from a state represented by Senate Republicans, and three historic first nominees.”

WAR IN ISRAEL

Glick: Israel’s strategic imperative

As of now, it appears that owing either to U.S. insistence or the Israel Defense Forces’ operational preferences, Israel is leaning towards keeping the issue of Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon on the back burner in the hopes of not having to engage Iran’s most powerful proxy force directly. The argument presented on behalf of this approach is that by defeating Hamas completely and reducing Gaza to rubble, Israel will deter Hezbollah from attacking it for the foreseeable future. While reasonable in theory, this view appears to ignore two key aspects of the strategic equation. First, we need to understand what it means that Hamas and its partners/trainers/suppliers/bosses in Iran and Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon planned this war for two years. With two years to prepare, we should assume they gamed all possible scenarios and planned for them, including Israel’s current operation in the Gaza Strip. Israeli commentators like to insist that Hamas was doubtlessly taken by surprise by the ferocity of Israel’s response to their one-day Holocaust. But given their meticulous planning, this assertion is highly unlikely. The second thing we need to consider is the nature of our enemy. Hamas, Hezbollah and the Iranian regime do not care about the societies they control. They are jihadists. In their religious war, all Muslims are obligated to participate. Some are destined to be fighters and martyrs. Some are tasked with serving as human shields. Hamas doesn’t care if Gaza is reduced to rubble if its cause of reducing Israel to rubble is advanced. This brings us to Hezbollah.

Nazar: Who is Hezbollah?

Following Hamas’s terrorist attack against Israel in October, Hezbollah, or “The Party of God,” an Iran-backed Shiite Lebanese terrorist group, has joined in the conflict, attempting to open a second front against Israel. But who is Hezbollah? Hezbollah emerged as a powerful political and military force in Lebanon. Following Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in 1982 to expel the secular Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) were sent to Lebanon to work with the country’s Shiite community to push Israel out of Beirut. In the city of Tyre, Hezbollah, with support from Tehran, employed suicide bombings via car bombs against Israeli forces, leading to shocking and devastating losses. The group later bombed the United Staes embassy and Marine barracks through truck bombs, shocking the international community. As a result of the group’s actions, the US government pulled all military forces out of Lebanon, granting Iran and Hezbollah a political victory. As Lebanon’s Shiite community grew more and more supportive of Hezbollah, the IRCG began expanding its operations in Southern Lebanon, assisting with the group’s official creation in 1985. The newly-created Iran proxy vowed to resist Israeli occupation and champion the rights of Lebanon’s Shiite population.

Michaelson: ‘All men 16 years and above, raise your hands’: how al-Shifa raid unfolded

Witnesses told Reuters that tanks entered the complex at 3am and that one parked in front of the emergency department. Mohammed Zaqout, the director of hospitals in the territory, said Israeli soldiers entered the emergency department and the surgery building, which also contains intensive care units. An official at the Hamas-run health ministry told AFP he could see “dozens of soldiers and commandos inside the emergency and reception buildings”. Witnesses who spoke to the BBC and AFP said Israeli soldiers used loudspeakers to demand that all males aged between 16 and 40 leave every part of the hospital complex other than the surgical and emergency wings and enter the hospital courtyard. “All men 16 years and above, raise your hands,” a soldier shouted in accented Arabic, according to a journalist speaking to AFP. “Exit the building towards the courtyard and surrender,” the soldier ordered.

About 1,000 Palestinian males, their hands above their heads, were soon led into the vast hospital courtyard, some of them stripped naked by Israeli soldiers checking them for weapons or explosives, the journalist said.

Bunyan: Goodbye, my brave daughter: Heartbroken mother weeps over the coffin of Noa Marciano after she and another hostage were found dead in hospital complex where Israel is searching for Hamas HQ

The heartbroken mother of a soldier held captive by Hamas terrorists today wept over her daughter’s coffin after the 19-year-old and another hostage were found dead in Gaza’s Al-Shifa hospital complex. […] The heartbroken mother had been told earlier this week that Noa, of the Combat Intelligence Collection Corps, had been killed after Hamas released a horrific video showing what appeared to be the 19-year-old’s dead body. Adi, who described Noa as a ‘girl of light and love’ and beloved big sister to her three siblings, had waited in anguish for news that her daughter’s body had been found.

That news came today, with the IDF confirming they had found the remains of Noa and another hostage Yehudit Weiss, 64, from a building adjacent to the hospital where Israeli soldiers are searching for a Hamas command centre.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ANTI POLICE ANTI VICTIM PRO CRIMINAL

Lippincott: Where Internal Compulsion is Lacking External Punishment is Required

Aquinas and Nietzsche are both articulating a fundamental truth: most criminals are profoundly stupid. They do not know their own good. It they did, they wouldn’t be murderers, thieves, and rapists. Instead of acting as slaves to their momentary passions for honor, wealth, and sexual pleasure they would seek these goods in a more moderate but enduring way that is good both for them and others. Modern America has forgotten this point. In the last few weeks, two brutal murders rocked the state of Tennessee. In the first week of November […] Imagine being the kind of human being who would pull the trigger. […] These vicious crimes put the lie to the idea that all human beings have equal worth. […]  The idea of universal human dignity, as we understand it today, is not a Christian idea. In Luke Chapter 3, we are told that when Christ comes back “his winnowing fork” will be “in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn” and that once this is done Christ “will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Christ makes very clear: some human beings are wheat and others are chaff. The wheat and chaff are not equally dignified. As it stands, we would be much a better country if the “chaff” human beings felt a real and profound fear at the prospect of hellfire and the executioner’s blade. Some human beings can only learn through pain. Instead of punishing crime, however, the modern American regime supports its increase.

Halff: NYC Mayor Eric Adams is forced to slash budget to cope with migrant crisis: NYPD officers are cut by a fifth and education takes a $1bn hit – after Mayor invited 120,000 desperate people to his ‘sanctuary city’

Mayor Eric Adams is being forced to slash New York City‘s budget to cope with the migrant crisis – after inviting 120,000 desperate people to his ‘sanctuary city.’  Adams warned New Yorkers on Thursday the migrant crisis would cause ‘painful’ budget cuts as he announced his administration’s budget for next year. The mayor announced a $110.5 billion budget, claiming cuts across all departments were necessary after the city spent $1.45 billion in fiscal 2023 on the migrant crisis. The city is predicted to spend approximately $12 billion on the ongoing migrant crisis within the next two years. The budget cuts would cause NYPD officers to be cut by a fifth, or 13.5 percent, by postponing the next five academy classes, bringing officers below 30,000 – down from 36,000. Education would also take a $1 billion hit over two years and it would cause a delay in the rollout of composting in the Bronx and Staten Island, causing reduced trash pick-ups as well as cuts to the city’s pre-K programs.

ADI Staff Reporter: Lawmakers Tell Tlaib Her “Extremist, Antisemitic Views Are Not Welcome in the State of Arizona”

A bipartisan group of Arizona legislators are pulling the welcome mat for pro-Hamas Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib is scheduled to appear at an event on Friday at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus and a fundraiser on Saturday at an undisclosed location. Arizona State Representatives Michael Carbone (R-25), Alma Hernandez (D-20), Alexander Kolodin (R-3), and Consuelo Hernandez (D-21) issued a statement on Thursday urging Arizonans to reject Tlaib and pray for 3-year-old United States citizen with ties to Arizona, Abigail Edan, who is being held hostage by Hamas: The State of Arizona is a safe place for Jews, both on and off campus, and the antisemitic rants regurgitated by SJP and others are not representative of Arizona values. Students supporting Israel have been verbally and physically assaulted on campus in recent days, requiring police escort during SJP rallies.

Tonkin: The terrifying sounds that hint Iceland’s volcano is ready to blow: Audio clip reveals the ‘exciting and scary’ seismic activity building around the Fagradalsfjall area

Iceland is bracing for a massive volcanic eruption that could wipe out an entire town, release toxic fumes and trigger widespread disruption. The country has ordered evacuations and declared a state of emergency as seismic activity ramps up around the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which is expected to blow in the coming days. Now, members of the public can listen to what this unnerving rumbling actually sounds like thanks to an app which transforms seismic frequencies into audible pitches. It is akin to doors slamming, hail pelting against a tin roof or window and people cracking trays of ice cubes, researchers say.
