Sonia Sotomayor, at 69 years old, is one of the younger justices on the Supreme Court. Something about which you should be concerned is whether Donald Trump wins a second term. Clarence Thomass and Samuell A. Alito are both over 70 and have expressed wanting to retire. This could shift the balance of power on the court for decades to come.

All it took was a little razor wire. Walls apparently work.

Last month, Texas saw 3-4,000 illegal crossings daily in the Del Rio sector.

Now that number is down to 200 per day following the state takeover by the TX National Guard.

Instead, illegals are now relocating to California and Arizona.

72% of the new border crossings are happening in those 2 states.

Texas has proven that the entire border invasion could be solved in 24 hours if the federal government stopped facilitating it.

The Biden administration’s recent military actions were not just a PR stunt. They were a strategic response to Iranian-backed attacks. The administration’s response included targeted strikes on facilities and possible Iranian targets. This shows their commitment to deal with the situation and deter more attacks, without causing full-scale escalation.

European Union leaders have overcome objections from Hungary to approve a 50 billion euro ($54bn) plan to support Ukraine for the next four years. The unanimous decision came on Thursday, as Ukraine continues its struggle to repel a full-scale Russian invasion that began nearly two years ago.

”Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden nationally by four points, a CNN poll found Thursday, underscoring Trump’s momentum heading into the 2024 election.”

And yesterday a poll said Biden would lead Trump by 6 points.

So now the misinformation and manipulation has begun.

Personally i would never base my voting off a poll result. Are people really stupid enough to be swayed by a poll?

‘Over 800 Officials in U.S. and Europe Sign Letter Protesting Israel Policies’

“The document was signed by government employees in 12 nations and E.U. institutions. Signers say their leaders’ policies could be contributing to war crimes in Gaza.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/02/us/politics/protest-letter-israel-gaza.html

“More than 800 officials in the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union released a public letter of dissent on Friday against their governments’ support of Israel in its war in Gaza.

The letter is the first instance of officials in allied nations across the Atlantic coming together to openly criticize their governments over the war, say current and former officials who are organizing or supporting the effort.

The officials say that it is their duty as civil servants to help improve policy and to work in their nations’ interests, and that they are speaking up because they believe their governments need to change direction on the war. The signers say they have raised concerns through internal channels but have been ignored.

“Our governments’ current policies weaken their moral standing and undermine their ability to stand up for freedom, justice and human rights globally,” the letter says, according to a copy obtained Thursday by The New York Times. It adds that “there is a plausible risk that our governments’ policies are contributing to grave violations of international humanitarian law, war crimes and even ethnic cleansing or genocide.” “

Biden and crew of imbeciles provided Iran and their proxies a week’s advance notice allowing ample time to distribute their assets from prospective targets. What happened to the element of surprise?

And what’s with the lost look of Biden in Dover receiving bodies of our servicemen killed in Jordan and wtf does Biden have our troops in Jordan, Syria, and Iraq? Bring our troops home, out of harm’s way! Biden’s DEI military is so utterly incompetent they couldn’t even stop a slow moving drone showing on radar long before impact.

You’re not doing yourself any favors here.

Shocker in international relations is telegraphing and backroom channels being used during times of stress between nations. When Trump went overboard taking out the Quds Force Commander his team and others scrambled to communicate with Iran, so things wouldn’t escalate.

As an aside, but related to Trump being unfit, here’s your boy in 2015 interview with Hew Hewitt:

“Are you familiar with General Suleimani?” Hewitt asked the real estate mogul from Queens.

“Yes,” said Trump, before hesitating. “Go ahead, give me a little … tell me.”

When Hewitt told Trump that Suleimani “runs the Quds Forces,” Trump responded: “I think the Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by us.”

“No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces,” Hewitt interjected. “The Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Quds Forces. The bad guys.”

‘Sam Harris’s Fairy-Tale Account of the Israel-Hamas Conflict’

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2023/11/sam-harriss-fairy-tale-account-of-the-israel-hamas-conflict.html

…”Ironically, Harris’s own position resembles religious fanaticism in its willful incuriosity. On Israel-Palestine, the celebrated atheist refuses to test the dogmatic tenets of a Manichaen worldview against either the historical record or present-day evidence. Instead of challenging his audience to grapple with the complex origins of the present war, he serves them a fairy tale in which the forces of “civilization” struggle against evildoers, whose malevolence derives from no political history or context but merely from their demonic possession by the mind-virus of jihad.”…

(I don’t think so, sounds like your cup of tea, but not mine…)

…”Yet on questions of foreign policy, Harris’s thinking can become nearly as dogmatic and blinkered as that of the religious zealots he’s dedicated himself to discrediting.

This was especially apparent on a recent episode of his podcast titled “The Bright Line Between Good and Evil.” Over the course of an hour, Harris laid out his views on Israel and why its present war with Hamas must be understood as a battle between “savagery and civilization.”

The core contention of his audio essay was that neither the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict, nor the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, is at all relevant for understanding why Hamas perpetrated atrocities on October 7. In Harris’s account, the terrorist group’s decision to launch an unprecedented attack against Israel didn’t derive from any earthly motivation, let alone from specific political grievances or national ambitions. Rather, Hamas is simply a jihadist organization, comprising individuals who wish to secure entry to eternal paradise by killing infidels. “…

…”Nevertheless, insisting that Hamas’s actions were caused exclusively by jihadism is at least as mindless as claiming that they were entirely determined by Palestinian subjugation.

Harris’s theory of Hamas’s terrorism makes sense if you know nothing about Hamas.
Harris’s case for why we can safely conclude that Hamas’s 30,000 members are entirely (and uniformly) motivated by a metaphysical desire for martyrdom, rather than concrete political grievances, is built on a single argument: Hamas is a self-described jihadist group, and jihadist groups frequently commit atrocities that have no coherent political aim. As Harris writes, “There have been nearly 50,000 acts of Islamic terrorism in the last 40 years … 90 percent of them have occurred in Muslim countries. Most have nothing to do with Israel or the Jews.” He notes that in 2014, “six jihadis affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban attacked a school in Peshawar,” murdering 132 children and burning a teacher alive in front of her students. They committed these horrors in the name of no earthly cause, and issued no set of demands. Their rationale for the atrocities was entirely religious.

For Harris, the fact that some self-described jihadists have committed atrocities for purely metaphysical reasons means that no self-described jihadist could possibly be motivated primarily by political grievances. The fallacy here is so obvious that it’s hard to see how someone as intelligent as Harris could fail to recognize it. His logic is scarcely distinguishable from the statement “Stalin was an atheist, and committed violence in the name of socialism. Therefore, all atheists who commit violence are exclusively motivated by socialist ideology.” Clearly, it is possible for groups to share a broad worldview without having identical motives or commitments.

There is another obvious logical problem with Harris’s insistence that Hamas’s actions are explained by bad theology, and only bad theology: This stance cannot explain why these vile religious ideas acquire currency in one context but not in others. The Quran was not introduced to Palestine in 1987, the year Hamas was founded. So how can we explain why an extremist interpretation of that book came to prominence in a given region at a given time without reference to history or politics? Even if we stipulate (falsely) that Hamas’s ideology is as apolitical as Harris suggests, that would not prove that its outlook’s popularity in Palestine was unrelated to that nation’s political subjugation.

The primary problem with Harris’s monologue, however, isn’t logical but empirical. His rant betrays a total lack of interest in testing his theory of Hamas’s motives against actual evidence. He makes no reference to Hamas’s history — which is convenient, since it is very difficult to reconcile that history with the theory that the organization isn’t motivated by political grievances. Hamas took shape during the First Intifada, in response to the killing of four Palestinian day workers at a Gaza checkpoint. During its first year of existence, it submitted a request for negotiations to then–Israeli defense minister Yitzhak Rabin, and demanded an end to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands and the right of refugees from the 1948 war to return to their ancestral homes within Israel. The latter issue was of special importance to Hamas’s founder, Ahmed Yassin, who had been uprooted by Israel during the Nakba. After Israel rebuffed these demands, and killed more than 142 Gazans in the course of suppressing the Palestinian uprising, Hamas commenced its campaign to destroy Israel through terrorism.”…

…”Harris is as willfully ignorant of Hamas’s present as he is with its past. He suggests that western academics who refuse to recognize that religious fanaticism (not vengeful nationalism) drives Hamas’s violence have their fingers in their ears.”…

Haven’t heard of IDF raping women to death. Driving nude Palestinian women thru the streets. Use ing women and children as shields like the filthy terrorists Hamas,
Stealing food from starving children.

All Hamas has to do is release all the remaining hostages and stop fighting.
If they really cared about the women and children of Gaza they would do this. They are little more than a criminal group.

The real blame belongs on the criminal terrorists Hamas

What then, Tru Matters, what then…???

What’s the incentive for everyone that you left out..???

Are you suggesting that the war would then actually miraculously stop, without actually suggesting that the war would then miraculously stop…???

You would be totally naive to think that Israel would slow their mayhem or stop running amok, for even a minute, if Hamas was to do what you suggest…

Not a chance of that.

About as naive as it is to not realize what kind of criminal terrorists that the Israelies have been, and have now also become.

https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20240130-israel-using-starvation-as-a-weapon-of-war-in-gaza-uk-mps-told/

“The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) in London has sent an advocacy paper to parliamentarians, top diplomats and stakeholders in the UK and Geneva, about Israel’s deliberate use of starvation as a weapon of war against Palestinians in Gaza.

Citing UN data, PRC said Israel has been deliberately denying Palestinians in Gaza access to food and water as it carries on with its genocidal attacks on the Strip. According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), currently over 500,000 Palestinians are classified as facing famine levels of starvation and “catastrophic hunger”.

PRC referred to statistics by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Activities (OCHA), which confirmed that only 15 bakeries were in operation across the Gaza Strip, where over two million people live. No bakeries are functional in the north of Wadi Gaza. Gaza is currently suffering the world’s worst hunger crisis, which is a deliberate attempt by the IOF to destroy any life-sustaining elements for the population.

“Human Rights Watch had already sounded the alarm at the end of 2023 that Israel was using starvation as a weapon of war. The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) imposed a ‘total blockade’ on October 9, only allowing limited humanitarian aid to enter Gaza through the Rafah crossing with Egypt,” it added.

PRC said that since 7 October, Israeli politicians and military officials have made statements “clearly showing their intent to deprive civilians in Gaza of food, water and fuel.”

The rights group called on the international community to impose a ceasefire and pressure Israel to immediately allow the entry of humanitarian and food aid to Palestinians in Gaza.”

The Palestinians hold hostages. Gaza officials reiterate their intent to repeat the murders, rapes and kidnappings. Has this group disavowed this tactic? If not, why should they be given any kind of credence? Should rapists, murderers and kidnappers be given belief?
The point keeps being, if Israel is a villain in this conflict so are Palestinians. IMHO with a small advantage to Israel, which, unlike Palestians, not conducted terrorism on US soil, has had democratic elections, does not regularly suppress so extremely women and girls and has not fought with murderous violence against other Israelis for politics power as have Palestinians with other Palestunians. There are no good choices on moral grounds for supporting either. It comes down to what the proxy enemies do. Because neither direct parties in the conflict show any intention of acting differently.
At least there was a small bit of some reasonable action when Biden signed a order about Israeli settlers who used violence against Palestinians. It’s only a gesture to make Israel take note of US demands because nothing the US can do will change the unrelenting hatred between Palestinians and Israelis. It is of benefit for US citizens to be aware too that someone, even in the US, will hate them for reasons beyond their control. Someone will always stereotype and label as evil someone else. Any action needs to be based on not responding in a knee jerk way to it.

Wash, rinse, repeat…

Ad nauseam.

Why is it that you never actually initiate a conversation, but only ever offer an incessant argument…???

Biden’s order to sanction violent non American settlers is as weak and meaningless as it could possibly be,

As surprised as I am that such an infinitesimally miniscule gesture from such an infinitesimally miniscule jester could possibly be considered meaningful in any way, shape, or form, by anyone at all, somehow it doesn’t surprise me that YOU are using it as a shining example of some kind of humanitarian decency.

What a joke that idea is, one that could only be even thought plausibly effective at all, coming from from someone like Biden, a Zionist Pro-Israeli, or an Israeli sympathizer.

Leave it to Biden to scapegoat and target
only a small handful of comparatively mischievous non entities, to sufficiently salve his entirely soulless conscience, and in a totally futile effort to shore up his hopelessly sagging popularity, due to his enabling and complicity in the genocidal IDF massacre of over 27,000, Palestinians, the total destruction of Gaza, and the ongoing intentional displacement and starvation of nearly 2 million survivors, not to mention the 66,000 injured Palestinians…

Any redemption for Biden, at the polls or anywhere else, is an impossibility firmly outside the realm of reality.

He is totally without a shred of merit or decency.

He’s as good as a lame duck as we speak.

He’s worthless.

“Wash, rinse, repeat…

Because that is what you obsessively do- repeating endlessly someone else’s emotional baggage ridden viewpoints. As if someone else holding the same opinion is proof of its validity to youAnything else is ignored, dismissed or ridiculed. Original argument is not something you see and therefore don’t recognize it when its right in front of you. Instead you come up with your own personalized petty attack by calling out “infinitesimally miniscule gesture from such an infinitesimally miniscule jester (sic? Do you mean gesture? It could be stretched to go either way.) could possibly be considered meaningful in any way, shape, or form, by anyone at all, somehow it doesn’t surprise me that YOU are using it as a shining example of some kind of humanitarian decency.” Of which nothing like any of those exaggerations in your rant was really said or even implied. In fact the exact opposite.

It has been a puzzling thing to see the strange alliance that has formed in a number of people- conspiracy theorists became anti vaxxers who subsequently became enamored of Putin over Ukraine and now have taken Pro Palestine protests into their existential angst mindset. Certainly others have noticed this phenomenon too. It has been noticed the ease with which “anti zionism” becomes so similar to old fashioned antisemitism. Or the Putin propaganda bit about Nazis taking over Ukraine was so readily swallowed. Or the obsession anti vaxxers have over the proof of their conclusions being so obvious to themselves then getting so angry when it’s criticized.

Gesture means effort.

Jester means clown.

Infinitesimally miniscule jester means Biden, the extremely tiny clown.

Infinitesimally miniscule gesture means Biden’s associated hopelessly pathetic effort…

It’s a play on words…

Sound it out…

Clearly you are endlessly arguing with something you don’t even fully comprehend…

Carry on with the rest of that MumboJumbo without me, will ya…???

Border negotiators in the Senate have reached a border deal.
Now if the Republican ass-hats will go along we may finally have some serious border legislation

But it seems they are more interested in kissing Trumps fat ass.

Who the hell would vote to let in 1.8m/yr criminal aliens?

5,000 illegal aliens per day is OUTRAGEOUS.
That’s 150,000 per month & 1.8M per year.

Boston is OVERRUN
Chicago is OVERRUN
Denver is OVERRUN
NYC is OVERRUN

We don’t have the capacity for this.
This deal is TERRIBLE & this deal is NOT SERIOUS.

PASS HR 2 & SECURE OUR BORDER NOW!

If the Senate passes border legislation separate from Ukraine then we can have a reconciliation conference against the border bill House sent to Senate several months ago. If they’re just using it as camouflage for another $60B payoff to get out from under blackmail threats then DOA

“Group of Palestinian-Americans skip Blinken meeting over Biden admin’s support for Israel’s offensive in Gaza”

A number of Palestinian-Americans refused to attend a roundtable meeting with Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday

CNN

“A number of Palestinian-Americans refused to attend a roundtable meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday to discuss the situation in Gaza in protest against the Biden administration’s ongoing support for Israel’s offensive in the war-torn strip – a military campaign that has exacted a massive humanitarian toll.

“We do not know what more Secretary Blinken or President (Joe) Biden need to hear or see to compel them to end their complicity in this genocide,” several of those who rejected the invitation said in a press statement distributed by the non-profit Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU).

“They show us every day whose lives they value and whose lives they consider disposable. We will not be attending this discussion which can only amount to a box-ticking exercise. Our families, our community and all Palestinians deserve better,” the signatories wrote.

“There is one thing that we, our community and countless others around the US and the world, including American unions representing nearly 8 million workers and at least 47 US cities, have been asking of this administration: to demand a permanent ceasefire to save Palestinians lives and stop the destruction of Gaza,” they wrote. “A meeting of this nature at this moment in time is insulting and performative.” “…

….”‘Soul-searching’
One of the invitees to the roundtable, Dr. Tariq Haddad, said in an intensely personal, 12-page letter to Blinken that he initially intended to go to the meeting.

However, “after a lot of soul-searching I have decided that I cannot in good conscience meet with you today knowing this administration’s policies have been responsible for the death of over 80 of my family members including dozens of children, the suffering of hundreds of my remaining family, the famine my family is currently subjected to and the destruction of all my family’s homes,” Haddad wrote in the letter.

“The more I thought about this meeting, the more I could not emotionally bring myself to look you in the eyes, Secretary Blinken, knowing you and President Biden have knowingly contributed to the suffering and murder of so many of my family, the homelessness and dispossession of 2 million Gazans, and the famine that has befallen my remaining family members,” Haddad said.

“How does one meet for what I was told would be 3 minutes, with a person you hold responsible for not just the killing of your child, but rather the murder of over 80 of your family members?” he asked in his letter.

“How do I look you in the eyes knowing you couldn’t even do the basic minimum like calling for a ceasefire to end the suffering and carnage, and even worse, are cutting off humanitarian assistance to 2 million people going through a famine of historic proportions,” he wrote, appearing to reference the suspension of US aid to the UN’s main relief agency in Gaza, UNRWA.

“My family are subsisting on animal feed, Secretary Blinken, because of your policies,” he said.

“You could have called for a cease-fire at any point in the past four months and ended all this suffering and death, and you have not. You could have used your diplomatic pressure to end the suffering, and you chose not to. You could have recognized that shutting off aid to an area that is experiencing the worst famine and human rights disaster in modern history is unethical, yet you chose not to. This is why it is very difficult emotionally for me to meet you today, to somehow normalize a meeting with an administration that continues day after day to cause so much suffering and death with their policies,” he wrote.

Haddad urged Blinken to call for an immediate ceasefire, “end the continued transfer of US military reserve equipment to the Israeli military to stop further murder,” “call for an immediate withdrawal out of Gaza and equality for the Palestinian people,” and a “call for an end to the Israeli occupation, for equal rights, freedoms, and laws in this land regardless of one’s religion, ethnicity, or background.” “…
