Biden Expected To Spend At Least $180 Million On Gaza Pier To Help Out Hamas

Imagine what $180 million could be used for to help Americans. To secure the border. To deport all the Islamists imported by the federal government who hate the U.S. just like Hamas and their Palestinian backers do

Cost of US effort to build humanitarian aid pier off Gaza expected to top $180M

President Joe Biden’s plan to build a humanitarian pier floating off the coast of Gaza that could enable delivery of food, water and medicine into the devastated region is expect to cost at least $180 million and could top $200 million, ABC News has learned.

The price tag was described by two people familiar with the initial estimate, which has not been released by U.S. Central Command.

The tally is expected to fluctuate as U.S. officials scramble to finalize key details on the project, including which humanitarian relief organizations and foreign governments are willing to help carry the shipments to shore and distribute them to ease the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza.

Officials also continue to discuss how to protect service members who will be operating three miles offshore of Gaza, where Hamas is believed to still operate.

So, let me get this straight: we’re paying a boatload to build a pier to deliver food and aid to people who may well attack US military members? In what world does that make sense?

The project — which triggered the deployment of six Army and Navy ships and will involve some 1,000 U.S. military troops — is on track to become operational in early May, enabling the delivery of some 2 million meals a day.

This would all be unnecessary if Hamas hadn’t attacked Israeli/Jewish civilians, breaking the ceasefire. Since that did happen, if they would simply release the hostages, lay down their arms, and surrender it could make it easy to deliver aid to people who…..hate the United States.

Biden Says He’s Watching Netanyahu After Their ‘Blunt’ Talk

President Joe Biden said he delivered a “blunt and straightforward” message to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on improving civilian conditions in Gaza.

“We’ll see what he does in terms of meeting the commitments he made to me,” Biden said Wednesday during a White House news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Biden has spent more time criticizing Netanyahu and Israel than Hamas, a US State Department designated terrorist organization, and all the Gaza residents who support them. Or Iran, which backs Hamas.

Good News: UN Climate Chief Says We Have Two Years To Stop Doom

Which happens more, me writing “practice what you preach” or Warmists coming out with end of world SOON! predictions (via The First Street Journal)

U.N. climate chief says two years to save the planet

Governments, business leaders and development banks have two years to take action to avert far worse climate change, the U.N.’s climate chief said on Wednesday, in a speech that warned global warming is slipping down politicians’ agendas.

Scientists say halving climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 is crucial to stop a rise in temperatures of more than 1.5 Celsius that would unleash more extreme weather and heat.

Yet last year, the world’s energy-related CO2 emissions increased to a record high. Current commitments to fight climate change would barely cut global emissions at all by 2030.

Simon Stiell, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change said the next two years are “essential in saving our planet”.
“We still have a chance to make greenhouse gas emissions tumble, with a new generation of national climate plans. But we need these stronger plans, now,” he said.

He made this proclamation in London. How many of the attendees took fossil fueled trips? Stiell is from Grenada: how did he get there? Looking through his Twitter and news reports, he sure seems to travel around a lot. And, funny how this comes down to money and increasing the size of government, along with DEI

Let’s see a few things

(Dropzone) “We don’t have 12 years to save the climate. We have 14 months,” the now-defunct ThinkProgress predicted 43 months ago.

Former French prime minister Laurent Fabius warned 3,239 days ago (WT-the article is from June 6, 2023) that the international community had only “500 days to avoid climate chaos.”

Earlier, in 2009, Gordon Brown, the U.K.’s prime minister at the time, said we had “fewer than fifty days to save our planet from catastrophe.”

In 2006, Gore claimed that unless world leaders took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, Earth would surpass the “point of no return” in ten years — a “true planetary emergency,” he called it.

Those are just a smattering

(NRO) A new article in a scientific journal claims that we have just six years left to save the planet from global warming, a claim that environmentalists masquerading as scientists have been regurgitating for at least the past 50 years.

“Scientists used to avoid phrases like ‘climate emergency’ and ‘climate crisis.’ No longer,” wrote the Washington Post on X. “Escalating rhetoric comes as a new study shows there’s just six years left to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius at current CO2 emissions rate.” The claim is comical given that such catastrophist language has been common in the environmental movement for decades, and it hasn’t let up.

The cultists keep throwing this prognostications of doom out, and then take a fossil fueled flight to a climate (cult) conference

Harvard biologist George Wald warned shortly before the first Earth Day in 1970 that civilization would end within 15 to 30 years “unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

And, yet, no one is fired or forced to resign or apologize. No one pays the price for their failed doom

Almost Half Of UK, US Muslims Back Hamas

Any who support Hamas should have their citizenship revoked, provided they weren’t born in the US, or their resident status revoked, and deported. Same with all those in the UK. Stop importing people who support Islamism

Nearly Half of U.S. Muslims, Like U.K. Muslims, Support Hamas in War

A recent poll by the Pew Research Center shows that nearly half of Muslims in the U.S. support the Hamas terrorist group in its war against Israel — a similar proportion to that found in a different poll of Muslims in the United Kingdom.

As Breitbart News reported April 8:

Nearly half of British Muslims would say they sympathise with Hamas while just one in four believe that the Palestinian Islamist terror group had committed murder and rape during the October 7th attacks on Israel, a survey says it has found.

The poll, commissioned by the counter-extremism Henry Jackson Society think tank, found that 46 per cent of British Muslims are sympathetic towards Hamas, which is classified by the UK and U.S. governments as a terrorist organisation.

A similar poll by the Pew Research Center in the U.S. released March 21 found that 49% of U.S. Muslims believed that Hamas’s reasons for fighting were “valid.” Only 22% said that Hamas’s reasons for fighting were “not valid.”

What is the demographic of the ones who hold these Islamic extremist opinions? How many grew up in the US, and how many were imported? How many have been in the UK and UK for several generations? If they polled in other 1st World nations, such as Canada and all across the EU, will they find similar attitudes? I know many Muslims: I’ll never be a part of any conversation which mentions Israel, Jews, or Islamic extremism, because I’ve heard these attitudes from many. We’ve seen it in our communities when Muslims were demonstrating early in the war and taking the side of Hamas.

This is how we get

These people go to our schools and infect other kids, leading to them having these beliefs as adults. The mayor of Dearborn wrote

“Over the weekend, video emerged of a rally in Dearborn where some attendees were chanting statements that were unacceptable and contrary to the heart of this city,” Hammoud said in a post on X Monday. “We reject all inflammatory and violent statements made at the gathering. Dearborn is a city of proud Americans; the hateful rhetoric heard on Friday does not reflect the opinion of the members of this community.”

The city council said something similar in a statement. But, it sure looks like the city believes this. Their Muslim population has protested Israel and said nasty things about Jews many times since Hamas started the war, and they’re represented by Ilhan Omar, who has said many anti-Semetic things during her time in the spotlite. They all need to go, and we need to keep them out of the U.S. We wouldn’t let members of the Nazi party in, right? Or other Islamic terrorists?

EU Court Hands Win To Group Of Older Swiss Women On Climate Crisis (scam)

Hooray, you won! After a lifetime of being able to travel around using fossil fuels, living the high life, you have now created a situation where the Swiss government will have to Do Something that will increase the cost of living, increase taxation, and reduce freedom and life choices. Kudos!

Swiss women win landmark climate case at Europe top human rights court

Europe’s top human rights court ruled on Tuesday that the Swiss government had violated the human rights of its citizens by failing to do enough to combat climate change, in a decision that will set a precedent for future climate lawsuits.

The European Court of Human Rights’s ruling, in favour of the more than 2,000 Swiss women who brought the case, is expected to resonate in court decisions across Europe and beyond, and to embolden more communities to bring climate cases against governments.

The Swiss women, known as KlimaSeniorinnen and aged over 64, said their government’s climate inaction put them at risk of dying during heatwaves. They argued their age and gender made them particularly vulnerable to such climate change impacts.

How many of them have given up their own use of fossil fuels and made their own lives carbon neutral? How many care that this will be foist upon the younger generations? Also, it’s rather insane that a court that is not in Switzerland can dictate how a sovereign nation acts. But, hey, they were warned that the creation of the EU would end up this way.

But in a sign of the complexities of the growing wave of climate litigation, the court (ECtHR) rejected two other climate-related cases on procedural grounds. One of these was brought by a group of six Portuguese young people against 32 European governments and another by a former mayor of a low-lying French coastal town.

Do the kiddies and mayor know they can actually practice what they preach and attempt to convince others to do the same?

Louisiana Looks To Pass Texas Style Illegal Immigration Bill

Is Louisiana having that much of a problem with illegal aliens crossing into the state? Regardless, it would be awesome if every state run by Republicans with a Republican governor would do this

Louisiana proposes bill similar to Texas’ migrant arrest law

illegal alien DemocratLouisiana’s Republican-controlled Senate advanced a bill Monday that would empower state and local law enforcement to arrest and jail people in the state who entered the U.S. illegally, similar to embattled legislation in Texas.

Amid national fights between Republican states and Democratic President Joe Biden over how and who should enforce the U.S.-Mexico border, Louisiana joins a growing list of legislatures seeking to expand states’ authority over border enforcement.

Proponents of the bill, such as the legislation’s author GOP state Sen. Valarie Hodges, say Louisiana has the “right to defend our nation.” Hodges has accused the federal government of neglecting responsibilities to enforce immigration law, an argument heard from GOP leaders across the country.

Opponents argue the bill is unconstitutional, will not do anything to make the state safer, and will only fuel negative and false rhetoric directed toward migrants.

If it catches illegal aliens then it makes the citizens safer. They should all be sent to the homes of those whining about “fueling negative and false rhetoric directed towards migrants.”

Across the nation, reliably red legislatures have advanced tougher immigration enforcement measures. The Oklahoma House passed a bill that would prohibit state revenue from being used to provide benefits to those living in the state illegally. A bill in Tennessee, which is awaiting the governor’s signature, would require law enforcement agencies in the state to communicate with federal immigration authorities if they discover people who are in the country illegally. Measures that mirror parts of the Texas law are awaiting the governor’s signature in Iowa, while another is pending in Idaho’s statehouse.

Good. And, we’ve seen that those who support sanctuary policies and illegal aliens in Democratic Party run areas are pretty unhappy when they actually have to have illegals in their own communities.

Like the Texas law, which has been put on hold by a federal appeals court panel that is considering whether to continue blocking enforcement pending further appeals, Louisiana’s bill would expand the authority of state and local law enforcement. In addition, Hodges said it would “start the deportation process.” Currently, enforcement of immigration law regarding illegal entry and deportations has long been the exclusive domain of federal law enforcement.

The question here is “does the Constitution say that only the federal government can detain and deport?” It does task Los Federales with securing the nation from invasion. “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization” isn’t it. They can determine who is illegal and legal, but, nothing about stopping people from entering states illegally.  And, if the federal government is failing to do the job, well, someone has to step in.

Israel/Jew Hating Protesters Shut Down Senate Cafeteria, Many Get Arrested

Will they be treated the same as the J6 folks who did nothing more than wander around the federal building their taxes pay for?


(Fox News) More than 50 people were arrested Tuesday after the Senate cafeteria was shut down by anti-Israel protesters chanting “Senate can’t eat until Gaza eats!”

The U.S. Capitol Police confirmed to Fox News that those arrested inside the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., were charged with Crowding, Obstructing, or Incommoding.

“It is illegal to demonstrate inside any of the Congressional Buildings,” Capitol Police said in a statement. (snip)

A source told Fox News that Capitol Police at one point shouted “Everybody out or be placed under arrest” – to which a protester replied “this is the house of the people!”

It’s really very simple: Hamas needs to release the hostages, lay down their arms, and surrender. As far as Gaza eating, well, they chose to support a US State Department designated terrorist organization, which is also taking the aid and not giving it to the Gazans.

Oh, and if the Dirksen building is the house of the people, then what is the Congressional building? Who wants to bet that all 50 some odd arrested are released and have the charges dropped, which will incent them to do this yet again?

The short lady with the blond hair in pink shirt sure looks like Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. Interesting that she and the group show up when it’s about protecting Islamic terrorists and hating on Jews/Israel, eh? And all the ones wearing Intifada keffiyehs, garb worn by terrorists.

Trump Releases Sensible, Constitutional Abortion Position

This goes hand in hand with what the Supreme Court ruled in the Dobbs case: that it is not a federal issue, it’s a 10th Amendment issue

Trump says abortion is up to the states, declines to endorse national limit

Former President Donald Trump on Monday said abortion should be left to the states in the post-Roe era, declining to endorse any national limit on the procedure.

His announcement, shared on Truth Social, is likely to disappoint anti-abortion groups who hoped he would use his bully pulpit to endorse national restrictions on abortion, especially after his campaign floated a 15-week ban earlier this year. Trump instead said that it was “up to the states to do the right thing” on abortion, painting Democrats as “radical” on the issue.

“The states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land,” Trump said. “Many states will be different. Many will have a different number of weeks, or some will [be] more conservative than others, and that’s what they will be. At the end of the day, this is all about the will of the people.”

The announcement highlights Trump’s recognition that abortion has dogged Republicans on the campaign trail since the fall of Roe v. Wade nearly two years ago — and his primary goal of winning the 2024 election. He has chided other Republicans for speaking “inaccurately” on abortion, intimating that severe restrictions have cost the GOP winnable elections. On Sunday night and again Monday morning he urged people to “follow their heart” or their religion but encouraged voters to remember the stakes.

Political or not, abortion decisions belong in the states. I know many will disagree with me, but, Congress should not be banning or approving abortion for the nation. While I’d certainly be in favor of European styled laws with bans around 15 weeks, it is not a federal issue (excepting where the US government should not be spending taxpayer money on abortions). Things that are not specifically mentioned as a Congressional duty must be left to states and The People.

Trump’s position has made many upset

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, in a statement to POLITICO reiterated the group’s commitment to “defeat President Biden” and congressional Democrats, but condemned Trump’s decision.

Trump also got into a spat with Lindsay Graham. And

(Politico) In the end, Trump couldn’t get past the feeling that it was a loser with voters. It is a lesson he learned through hard political experience — most importantly in the 2022 elections.

For years, at a gut level, the former president has feared the backlash he might face for taking a hard-line position on abortion. And despite his attempt to fog up the issue with his new, state-based stance, Trump is still likely to pay a price with voters for appointing the Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v. Wade. And his decision not to endorse a ban has exposed deep fissures within his own party. After Graham released a statement Monday in which he said he “respectfully disagree[s]” with Trump’s position, Trump did not let it go, instead accusing Graham and Republicans like him of sinking the GOP.

And then there’s Biden

(Politico) President Joe Biden lashed out at Donald Trump’s announcement Monday that abortion should be left up to the states and warned of consequences should Trump win in November.

“No one trusts Donald Trump,” Biden said, pointing to how the former president made a “political deal” with the anti-abortion right.

The president went on to say that his predecessor’s lack of endorsement for a national ban was an illusion. “If they put one on his desk, he said he’d sign it.”

Biden made his remarks during a high-end fundraiser in Chicago featuring about 50 friends and donors, including Bill Daley, former chief of staff to President Barack Obama.

Blah blah blah. These are the same people who push abortion as contraception, and are happy to make sure that blacks are aborting their babies at higher rates than any other group. Anyhow, Trump’s position may not be the moral position, but, it is the correct Constitution position. I mostly do not get involved in this issue except as a political position, and I agree with Trump.

Climate Crazy: Sunny Hostin Links Earthquakes, Eclipses, and Cicadas To Hotcoldwetdry

When a doomsday cult constantly pushes insane doomsday propaganda you get this

You have to know that a lot of climate cultists were totally agreeing with her

The View’s Sunny Hostin blames eclipse, earthquake and cicadas on ‘climate change’

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin blamed Monday’s solar eclipse, Friday’s earthquake and the expected cicada breeding season on “climate change.”

“All those things together would maybe lead one to believe that either climate change exists, or something is really going on,” she said Monday.

A 4.8 magnitude earthquake was felt across New York and New Jersey on Friday and on Monday the highly anticipated solar eclipse swept across the continental U.S.

Good on The View’s cohosts for shutting this bit of insanity down, but, really, these kinds of thoughts are not outside the norm for Warmists. This is the kind of thinking that has perpetuated via the media, schools, politicians, and “scientists.”
