PROTEST OR PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT RABBLE-ROUSING?

Ramierez

We shall know them by their actions...

Everything old is new again, as anti-Israel activists start to recycle old protester tricks that were employed by the BLM.

Remember when the BLM crew was blocking intersections and surrounding cars, then flipping their lids if the cars wanted to get through/not be restrained by them?

There's a video now going viral that captures this being employed by anti-Israel activists in Vancouver. It appears to be an incident from last month, but the video is only getting wide attention now. You can see the video on X/Twitter here. They surrounded the car and even put a bike in front of it to prevent the car from getting through.

But the car manages to wiggle through the cordon that they've set up, as they scream and curse like banshees, "Oh, my God!" and "What the f**k" as though the person is knocking them over when none of them are hit. It does sound like the car might have hit the bike though.

They're the ones standing in the middle of the road. At what point do they realize this is a bad strategy? And it's funny they immediately start yelling at the cop for not protecting them from the car. The woman tells the cop that the driver ran into people when there's no evidence of that.

Why is the cop letting them block the road to begin with? He should be locking them all up for blocking the road. But it's Justin Trudeau's Canada so that probably explains why they were allowed to block the road and weren't cleared out.

These characters pretend that they're the victims when they're the ones disrupting the lives of other people and creating these situations. They also don't seem to give a darn about the Israeli and American victims killed by the Hams terrorists. <Source>

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters march in downtown San Francisco, calling for an end to the Israel-Hamas war...

According to police, the group then moved to Union Square, where “several people began to commit crimes,” ranging from assault to felony vandalism, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Police Department said. The department said there was property damage as well. Demonstrators vandalized monuments and holiday decorations. Graffiti was written throughout Union Square but police were able to disperse the crowd. A photo of a protester climbing the Union Square Christmas tree with a sign could be seen on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

Who is behind this pro-terrorist propaganda?

Democratic dark money giant behind anti-Israel protests has scored $81M in taxpayer dollars

An influential liberal dark money group propping up anti-Israel activism across the United States has pocketed massive amounts in taxpayer-backed grants and contracts in recent years, according to a Washington Examiner analysis of federal spending records.

The Tides Center, which funds organizations behind Hamas-sympathetic protests held after the terrorist faction’s deadly Oct. 7 attack against Israel, has long helped shape the progressive agenda with the financial backing of billionaire philanthropists such as Bill Gates and George Soros. But the Democratic-allied charity sitting on hundreds of millions of dollars in assets also retains another key supporter in the federal government, which directly or through subawards steered more than $81.2 million to the Tides Center between 2006 and 2023, documents show.

The U.S. government’s extensive support for the Tides Center is a window into how taxpayer dollars regularly flow to charities closely affiliated with the anti-Israel movement. The Tides Center has faced scrutiny from conservatives for facilitating a dark money pass-through system allowing wealthy Democrats to pour donations into initiatives housed under the nonprofit group, whose projects do not have to file their own tax forms with the IRS. This process, known as fiscal sponsorship, has the effect of obscuring sources for donations to and from the California-based charity.

Pro-Palestinian projects benefiting from the Tides Center’s tax-exempt status, including the Adalah Justice Project, Palestine Legal, and the Catalyst Project, have repeatedly justified and downplayed the Hamas-led Oct. 7 attack — which killed more than 1,200 people in the Jewish state. The Tides Center and its sister group, the Tides Foundation, also have granted millions of dollars combined over the years to Alliance for Global Justice, a charity in Arizona revealed through a Washington Examiner investigation to share ties to Palestinian terrorism, and other entities that have celebrated convicted terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

“The Tides Center is a clearinghouse for funding far-left causes, including radical anti-Israel’ resistance’ groups that have been spotted on college campuses chanting for the destruction of Israel,” said Benjamin Baird, director of Middle East Forum Action, a watchdog tracking terrorism-tied groups. “It does not need any help from the federal government, which is only subsidizing extremism by bankrolling a Marxist-Islamist piggy bank like Tides.”

Nearly half of the $81.2 million that flowed to the Tides Center was routed through a subcontract or subgrant, meaning the charity received the cash after the federal government first made a prime award to another entity, such as the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, City and County of San Francisco, and universities, the Washington Examiner found. During President Joe Biden’s time in office alone, the Tides Center has been awarded roughly $38.3 million in taxpayer money, either directly or through subawards, records show.

Continue this tale of anti-American, pro-communist, pro-terrorist evil at the Washington Examiner.

More importantly, are these the progressive communist democrat shock troops tuning up for the 2024 street battles before the election?

There is little doubt that Antifa and Black Lives Matter, both violent domestic terror operations, were allied with the progressive communist democrats and their various oligarch supporters and are likely to be mobilized again.

Bottom line...

Look for a “hot” summer as the progressive communist democrats ramp up the street violence before the 2024 nominating conventions. 

We are so screwed when law enforcement refuses to execute their sworn duties to maintain public peace and order.

IS PIERCE BROSNAN THE WRONG TYPE OF DEMOCRAT?

I was shocked that the progressive communist democrats would think to charge a beloved liberal democrat actor, Pierce Brosnan, for an act of stupidity that could have endangered his life.

Pierce Brosnan Faces Charges After Allegedly Trespassing at Yellowstone

Pierce Brosnan was cited after allegedly going to Yellowstone National Park’s restricted areas.

Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan could face possible jail time after he allegedly walked into Yellowstone National Park’s restricted hydrothermal areas, according to newly unsealed court documents.

A criminal docket filed in the U.S. District Court in Wyoming on Tuesday shows that the “GoldenEye” star received citations for traveling by foot “in all thermal areas and ... in Yellowstone Canyon confined to trails” and for also “violating closures and use limits” on Nov. 1, according to multiple news reports. Both citations were listed as petty offenses, and he’s been ordered to appear at the Yellowstone Justice Center next month.

Mr. Brosnan is accused of allegedly leaving the boardwalk area to enter restricted grounds, according to the charging documents.

The offense is punishable by as many as six months in jail and a maximum fine of $5,000, it was reported.

Deadly Consequences

Going out-of-bounds in such areas can be dangerous: a small portion of the millions of people who visit Yellowstone each year get badly burned by ignoring warnings not to stray off the trail. Over the years, dozens of people have died in the thermal areas.

It then warned that swimming or soaking in hot springs is illegal, noting that more than 20 people have died “from burns suffered after they entered or fell into Yellowstone’s hot springs.” Some of the pools and hot springs can contain significant amounts of sulfuric acid, which can burn anyone exposed to it.

“Toxic gases may accumulate to dangerous levels in some hydrothermal areas. If you begin to feel sick while exploring one of our geyser basins, leave the area immediately,” it says.

Getting caught can bring legal peril too, with jail time, hefty fines, and bans from the park handed down to trespassers regularly. <Source>

Then I realized that Pierce Brosnan is the wrong type of liberal democrat and, therefore, cannot avail himself of the Democrat’s two-tiered justice system.

Bottom line…

It appears that the progressive communist democrats will openly attack anyone who supports Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and threaten to disrupt the Biden primary narrative that Joe Biden is fit for office and still vigorous enough to serve as the President of the United States. At least until the end of the convention when Biden will become the party’s nominee, promptly drop out, and the progressive communist democrat poohbahs will decide who will replace Biden in the general election. It’s already in the 2024 Democratic National Committee rulebook.

We are so screwed when we allow celebrities to influence our political choices. Vote your wallet in 2024.

WALL STREET JOURNAL SERVES UP HAMAS PROPAGANDA

For those of us over a certain age, war – armed conflict between major forces – was a brutal event with tragic deaths of innocents on both sides.

What appears to have changed over the years is based on increasingly unrealistic multiculturalism, a blurring of the line between good and evil, how the media covers conflicts and the fighting on the battlefield of propaganda and public perception, and the expectation of a “sanitary war” where only combatants, no matter how evil, are killed in surgical strikes with multi-million dollar smart munitions.

I am shocked and dismayed that the Wall Street Journal would make an editorial decision to publish inflammatory propaganda that is sympathetic to Hamas, a known terrorist entity that cares nothing about human life, be they combatants or civilians, women, and children included.

How an Israeli Airstrike on a Hamas Commander Also Killed Scores of Civilians

A Wall Street Journal investigation found that a mix of intentional tactics and unintended consequences contributed to one of the deadliest bombings of the Gaza war

The alley-like streets and closely spaced buildings of the Block 6 neighborhood in Gaza’s Jabalia refugee camp were packed with people the afternoon of Oct. 31. Some stood in a long line at the local bakery. Others were crammed more tightly than usual into tiny apartments.

Many had ignored or were unable to heed repeated calls from the Israeli military to evacuate farther south to avoid its approaching troops and aerial bombardment, believing they were relatively secure deep inside the sprawling, densely populated camp.

“We were at home, with many relatives and even people we never met before, seeking refuge with us in a place that was safe,” recalled resident Mohammad Tabaq, 27.

Around 3:30 p.m., Israeli warplanes dropped multiple large bombs in a tight pattern on the neighborhood. Satellite photos show The explosion leveled an entire rectangular block, leaving deep craters where more than a dozen buildings had stood.

The strike killed Ibrahim Biari, Hamas’s battalion commander for Jabalia, who Israeli intelligence believed was directing a nearby battle, and dozens of other militants, according to the Israeli military. But it also left the bodies of at least 126 people in the rubble, one of the deadliest attacks of the Gaza war, according to Airwars, a nonprofit affiliated with the University of London that investigates civilian casualties in conflict zones. 

[OCS: Airwars is not a reliable or neutral reporting entity. It is a George Soros not-for-profit propaganda entity that claims to track and archive the international air war against Islamic State and other groups in Iraq, Syria, and Libya and assesses and follows up on credible allegations of civilian casualties. In war, the expectation of collateral damage to property and persons is the cost of war and cannot be avoided.

In comparison, the world had little comment on the Dresden bombing by the Allies. “It is thought that some 25,000–35,000 civilians died in Dresden in the air attacks, though some estimates are as high as 250,000, given the influx of undocumented refugees that had fled to Dresden from the Eastern Front. Most of the victims were women, children, and the elderly.” What is different is that there were few in America’s fifth column seeking to destroy America and its allies from within.]

The decision to bomb an urban neighborhood packed with people in the middle of the afternoon to kill an enemy commander signaled early in the war that Israel was willing to use overwhelming force against Hamas’s leadership, even if it meant risking large numbers of civilian casualties.

[OCS: This is pure propaganda in that Hamas deliberately places weapons and personnel in civilian areas, including private homes, schools, hospitals, and Mosques, and has a policy of using human shields to protect them from attack—knowing that any civilian deaths can be exploited in the media to further its propaganda defense. Any deaths of innocent civilians should be placed squarely on Hamas, not Israel.

In one of her more famous quotes, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir lamented, “When peace comes, we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons. Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” That Hamas commanders choose to surround themselves with family and others in on them.]

Among the findings:

•  Israel decided not to warn civilians in the area of an imminent airstrike via phone messages out of fear of giving the militants time to evacuate.

[OCS: What other military warns the enemy before an attack where civilians might be present? Certainly not Hamas or any of the other Islamic fighting entities.]

•  The military appears to have deployed at least two of the largest bombs in its arsenal rather than using smaller targeted munitions.

[OCS: The selection of weapons is an on-the-ground decision, and finger-pointing in hindsight is disingenuous and intellectually dishonest.]

•  Air force commanders attempted to limit collateral damage by aiming guided bombs between buildings and using fuses that slightly delayed the detonations until the munitions had penetrated beneath the surface—but by destroying tunnels they also brought down buildings standing above.

[OCS: I guess the lesson here is not to build terror tunnels under civilian infrastructure, for terrorists to avoid fighting from civilian areas, and to quit using civilians as human shields. Alternatively, the media place blame directly on the terrorists.]

At the time, Biari was commanding Hamas’s forces in northern Gaza from a command center, making him a legitimate and important military target, they said. On Oct. 7, he commanded fighters who attacked the Erez crossing, the main border post, the Israeli military said. He had “directed a terrorist attack at the Israeli port of Ashdod in 2004, resulting in the murder of 13 Israelis” and was involved in firing rockets at Israel for two decades, Israel’s military said.

[OCS: A righteous kill!]

Bottom line…

It appears that the Wall Street Journal has joined the progressive communist democrats at the Atlantic Magazine in blaming Israel for the death and destruction directly attributable to Hamas and Iran.

We are so screwed when propaganda is mainstreamed to Americans. Where are the liberal fact-checkers and community commenters on this story?

CONGRESSIONAL GESTAPO METASTISIZES OUTSIDE OF WASHINGTON: WHAT ARE THEY DOING PRIOR TO THE 2024 ELECTION?

PELOSI-CAPITOL-POLICECan you think of any legitimate reason for the U.S. Capitol Police to maintain regional field offices in San Francisco, California, and Tampa, Florida?

The U.S. Capitol Police is the federal law enforcement agency responsible for protecting the U.S. Capitol Complex, which includes the U.S. Capitol Building, congressional office buildings, and their occupants. Established to ensure the safety and security of Congress members, staff, visitors, and the infrastructure itself, the USCP's primary purpose is to maintain order and enforce federal and local laws within its jurisdiction. The agency operates under the authority of the Capitol Police Board and is subject to congressional oversight, ensuring accountability and adherence to its mission of safeguarding the democratic processes and institutions housed within the Capitol Complex.

While the roles of the House Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader do not include direct operational control over the USCP on a day-to-day basis, their influence was significant in shaping the priorities and policies related to the response to the January 6 riot, including putting politics above protection and declining help from President Trump before the scheduled January 6 rally.

Government buildings outside of Washington, D.C. are protected by the Federal Protective Service, a federal law enforcement agency that provides security and law enforcement services to federally owned and leased buildings.

Outside of those congressional officers who receive statutory or directed full-time protection from the Capitol Police or the U.S. Secret Service, the majority of members coordinate events with local and state police and sometimes use their own personal security.

However, it appears that the duties of the United States Capitol Police were expanded to include “intelligence” (aka spying on the American people) and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to expand the presence of the United States Capitol Police to include areas outside of Washington, D.C.

USCP-HDRAfter the Attack: The Future of the U.S. Capitol Police
July 6, 2021 -- Press Release

It has been six months since rioters attacked the United States Capitol and our brave police officers and law enforcement partners who fought valiantly to protect elected leaders and the democratic process.

Throughout the last six months, the United States Capitol Police has been working around the clock with our Congressional stakeholders to support our officers, enhance security around the Capitol Complex, and pivot towards an intelligence-based protective agency.

Enhanced Member Protection

The USCP has enhanced our staffing within our Dignitary Protection Division as well as coordinated for enhanced security for Members of Congress outside of the National Capitol Region.   The Department is also in the process of opening Regional Field Offices in California and Florida with additional regions in the near future to investigate threats to Members of Congress.  <Source: USCP>

[ OCS: The press release was signed by Acting USCP Chief Yogananda Pittman, against whom credible allegations exist about her mishandling of intelligence, failing to respond appropriately during the riot, and committing perjury by lying to Congress about her activities.]

Why?

Bottom line…

I can understand Nancy Pelosi trying to establish personal protection in the cesspool of crime, drugs, and feces in San Francisco, but other than spying on former President Donald Trump and primary challenger Governor Ron DeSantis, what is the compelling reason for locating anything in Florida?

We are so screwed.

WHO CARES WHAT DONALD TRUMP, JUNIOR SAYS?

Dtjkg-1

I don’t know about you, but I find the baby-grifter Donald Trump Jr. and his social-climbing wife Kimberly Guilfoyle (aka the ex-Mrs. Gavin Newsom) to be more disingenuous and annoying than simpering Prince Harry and his odious wife, Meghan Markle.

Particularly annoying was Junior’s proclamation that he “would go to great lengths to make sure’ Ms. Haley is not tapped as VP.” It is annoying because, like his father, Junior has a horrible record of choosing business associates and businesses with which to associate. He is loud, brash, and without personal accomplishment that wasn’t facilitated by his name. 

While I am sure he would be a fun guy on a Safari, there is no way I would trust his judgment regarding politics or business. Here is a guy who was born halfway between third base and home, and when he manages to cross home plate, he takes credit for the team’s victory.

Junior does not have the influence of Ivanka or the day-to-day responsibilities of Eric, which says a lot about his relationship with his father.

Donald Trump Jr. Says He’d Go to ‘Great Lengths’ to Stop Haley as VP Pick

‘I would go to great lengths to make sure’ Ms. Haley is not tapped as VP, the former president’s son said.

Donald Trump Jr. has expressed strong opposition to the prospect of Nikki Haley being tapped as his father’s running mate in the 2024 presidential election, pledging to go to “great lengths” to prevent it.

In a recent interview, Mr. Trump Jr. declared that he “wouldn’t have her” as the vice presidential candidate alongside his father, former President Donald Trump, should he secure the GOP nomination next year.

“I would go to great lengths to make sure that doesn’t happen,” the former president’s son told Newsmax on Dec. 25.

The statement came after the outlet played video footage of Ms. Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a GOP presidential candidate, making critical comments about President Trump during an interview with ABC News Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis earlier in the month.

“I don’t think he should be president,” said Ms. Haley, who expressed concerns about the state of the country and the world, saying, “Donald Trump brings us chaos.”

In response to the footage, Mr. Trump Jr. dismissed Ms. Haley’s candidacy, accusing her of being a “puppet” of the Washington establishment. <Source>

While I believe that Nikki Haley is a tough-talking marshmallow representing the Jeb Bush wing of the GOP establishment and do not consider her a viable presidential candidate, who is this jumped-up putz to say “he ‘wouldn’t have her’ as the vice presidential candidate alongside his father.” It’s not his decision; his personnel recommendations have all been duds.

It is even more annoying as his wife parades about seeking affirmation as an important person.

Bottom line…

I wish Junior and his wife would join James Carville in some dark back room where we do not have to listen to their bullpucky. At least Carville is interesting and does not display daddy issues.

Truth be told, Don Jr. is a cleaner version of Hunter Biden when it comes to exploiting the family name. 

We are so screwed.

IS KANYE WEST’S APOLOGY WORTH ONE BILLION DOLLARS?

Once again, it appears that a well-known celebrity is embarking upon an apology tour after public pushback against disgusting remarks. 

KANYE

“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions, it was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused,” West wrote. “I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity.”

After losing major sponsorships and the condemnation of a major segment of the public, will anyone buy a spin-doctor-created apology that was translated into Hebrew? Has Kanye West changed his stripes, or is he responding to the pressure of those whose livelihoods he impacts?

Considering much of the black population is racist and, in particular, anti-Semitic, I have every reason for challenging Kanye’s sincerity after claiming to admire Hitler and threatening to go “death con 3 on Jewish people.”

Recently, at a Las Vegas “listening party,” Kanye said, “It’s 60 million of us in America, 60 million Jews in the world,” and claimed Jewish people own all the hospitals and private schools in the United States, even though the worldwide Jewish population is 15.2 million Jews. He also screamed, “Jesus Christ, Hitler, Ye! Sponsor that!!!”

With his daughter North in attendance and his collaborator “Ty Dolla $ign” standing next to him, he rapped, “I still keep some Jews with me. Management? Nah. I only let ’em do my jewelry.”

Bottom line…

Kanye, you sick anti-Semitic motherfucker…

Gfy

We are so screwed when we make heroes and billionaires out of anti-Semitic sleezebags.

Sorry, I cannot find forgiveness for someone who continually degrades other people, especially women” with his racist and misogynistic raps and calls it art. There is a line between artistic freedom and responsibility to one’s audience that, once crossed, precludes a return to former fame and fortune.

NEW YORK TIMES PROPAGANDA: HAMAS OFFICIAL SPEAKS

Once again, the anti-Semitic New York Times has decided to spew Hamas propaganda…

Anti-semitic-nyt

Boo effin Hoo...

The_New_York_Times_logoI Am Gaza City’s Mayor. Our Lives and Culture Are in Rubble.

By Yahya R. Sarraj

Dr. Sarraj is the mayor of Gaza City and a former rector of the University College of Applied Sciences there. He wrote from Gaza City.

[OCS: Dr. Sarraj, is little more than a titled mouthpiece who, like every Gazan official, serves at the pleasure of Hamas and is beholden to the terrorists.] 

As a teenager in the 1980s, I watched the construction of the intricately designed Rashad al-Shawa Cultural Center in Gaza City, named after one of Gaza’s greatest public figures, and its theater, grand hall, public library, printing press and cultural salon.

[OCS: Big fucking deal! A cultural Potemkin icon that masks the terrorist intent of Hamas and the near 80% of Gazans who approve and celebrate their terrorist butchery on October 7. Before you speak about refined culture, explain why your schools continue to teach young children to hate Jews and that their greatest achievement would be to die as a martyr while killing Jews?]

Students, researchers, scholars and artists from across the Gaza Strip visited it, and so did President Bill Clinton in 1998. The center was the gem of Gaza City. Watching it being built inspired me to become an engineer, which led to a career as a professor and, in the footsteps of al-Shawa, as mayor of Gaza City.

Now that gem is rubble. It was destroyed by Israeli bombardment.

[OCS: Any building used to store weapons, house terrorists, or serve as a command center for terrorism is a legitimate target. Perhaps you should have asked why Hamas put this structure at risk?]

The Israeli invasion has caused the deaths of more than 20,000 people, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, and destroyed or damaged about half the buildings in the territory. The Israelis have also pulverized something else: Gaza City’s cultural riches and municipal institutions.

[OCS: The Gaza Health Ministry is a propaganda tool of Hamas. Even if the number were accurate, how many were Hamas-affiliated individuals? How many were civilian shields for Hamas positions? How many were killed by Hamas to prevent them from  leaving the area and denying their use as human shields?]

The unrelenting destruction of Gaza — its iconic symbols, its beautiful seafront, its libraries and archives and whatever economic prosperity it had — has broken my heart.

[OCS: The Gazans brought this destruction upon themselves: one, by empowering Hamas, and two, by not fighting terrorism in their own area.]

The Gaza Zoo has been destroyed, with many of its animals killed or starved to death, including wolves, hyenas, birds and rare foxes. Other casualties include the city’s main public library, the Children’s Happiness Center, the municipal building and its archive, and the seventh-century Great Omari Mosque. Israeli forces have also damaged or destroyed streets, squares, mosques, churches and parks.

[OCS: Don’t cry crocodile tears when you store weapons in a Zoo and the animals are harmed. Yes, talk about the happy children who dress up as Hamas fighters and pretend to kill Jews while  adults applaud and cheer them on. Talk about the happy children who are “rewarded” with sweets when Jews are killed.]

One of my major goals after the Hamas administration appointed me mayor in 2019 was to improve the city’s seafront and foster the opening of small businesses along it to create jobs. It took us four years to finish the project, which included a promenade, recreation areas and spaces for those businesses. It took Israel only weeks to destroy it. Niveen, a divorced woman I know, was supposed to open a small restaurant in November but her dream is gone. Mohammed, a disabled Palestinian, lost his small café.

Why did the Israeli tanks destroy so many trees, electricity poles, cars and water mains? Why would Israel hit a U.N. school? The obliteration of our way of life in Gaza is indescribable. I still feel I am in a nightmare because I can’t imagine how any sane person could engage in such a horrific campaign of destruction and death.

[Trees were hiding terrorists and weapons, as for the rest of the infrastructure – that’s war for you.]

The modern municipality of Gaza was established in 1893 and is one of the oldest in the Middle East. It served about 800,000 people, among the largest congregations of Palestinians in the world. Even after Israel forcibly displaced more than one million Palestinians from northern Gaza after the war began, much of the population in the city remained.

[OCS: Bullshit! The majority of the population are Egyptian and Jordanian Arabs. And one might ask, why did Gaza not flourish like Beirut or Dubai? Could it be the fault of terrorists? Most of the population remained because they were denied exit by Hamas who shot departing civilians or lacked the ability to escape. The government, under Hamas, denies any responsibility for civilians, leaving their care to the United Nations or the so-called “occupiers.”]

When Israel began its war on Gaza in response to the deadly attack by Hamas, I was abroad. I cut my tour short to return to help our people. I head an emergency committee of municipal workers and volunteers, who have been trying to fix water pipes, open roads and clear disease-causing sewage and garbage. At least 14 members of our municipal staff have died. Almost everyone on the committee has lost a home or relative.

I, too, have lost a loved one. Without warning, a direct hit to my house on Oct. 22 killed my eldest son, Roshdi, a photojournalist and filmmaker. He thought he would be safer at his parents’ home. It made me wonder if I could have been the target. We will never know. I buried Roshdi and quickly returned to work with the emergency committee.

[OCS: You, as a high-ranking Hamas official, and anyone around you is a legitimate target. It was a “targeted” precision strike—so I can assume the presence of Hamas.]

Israel, which began its blockade of Gaza more than 16 years ago and has maintained what the United Nations and human rights groups call an ongoing occupation for far longer, is destroying life here. An unnamed Israeli defense official promised to turn Gaza into a city of tents and Israel has forcibly displaced its inhabitants. For once, Israel is keeping a promise its officials made to the Palestinians.

[OCS: The United Nations is a corrupt, failed institution, now dominated by anti-America nation States. You should be turned into a sea of glass and pillars of salt for the terrorism you spawn]

I call on the world’s municipalities — everyone — to pressure world leaders to stop this mindless destruction.

[OCS:  Asswipe, I don’t hear you call for the surrender of the terrorists or for Hamas to stop firing rockets into Israel. It is not mindless destruction, but precision strikes to kill terrorists and to eliminate or degrade their military capabilities. That the HAMAS terrorists chose to locate weapons in civilian areas, next to private homes, schools, hospitals, and Mosques is their choice. Likewise, Hamas chooses to use Gazans as human shields to protect their terrorists—again their choice.]

Why can’t Palestinians be treated equally, like Israelis and all other peoples in the world? Why can’t we live in peace and have open borders and free trade? Palestinians deserve to be free and have self-determination. Gaza’s emblem is the phoenix, which rises from the ashes. It insists on life. <Source>

[OCS: Because Gazans are not like the Israelis. The do not share the same values with respect for human life or human rights. They have voluntarily elected to be governed by brutal terrorists whose charter demands the killing of Jews and the destruction of the legitimate State of Israel. Even your Muslim neighbors, the Egyptians have closed their borders to Gazans as they also recognize the danger of jihad being exported to their country. The border protections are to protect the innocent from your terrorists. As for free trade, that is a propaganda buzzword. Gaza manufacturers nothing of note to export and diverts much of its industrial capacity, such as it is, to the production of weapons.]

Why did the New York Times print this?

Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Osama bin Laden, and others were dead—and ISIS was engaged elsewhere.

My message to Mayor Yahya R. Sarraj…

GfyBottom line…

It is incredible how the progressive communist democrats divide everything up by the oppressor/oppressed paradigm – and side with those they deem oppressed, even if they are barbaric butchers and evildoers, even if they have sworn to kill the progressive communist democrats at a time and place of their choosing, and, even if they do not embrace Western cultural values of the dignity of life and human rights.

We are so screwed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ONE CITIZEN SPEAKING 2023

To all my readers…  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the very best for the coming Holiday Season.

To everyone else…  

Please accept with no obligation, expressed or implied, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2023, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. This is, of course, neither to suggest nor imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country; also, this is not to imply that "America," as noted herein, is the only America in the Western Hemisphere. May these heartfelt wishes be received with equal intensity regardless of distribution of individual wealth, documented carbon footprint, or perceived social privilege among the wishes addressed herein. This wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wish.

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays...

Let us, for a moment, forget the political and financial catastrophes that have befallen our nation and concentrate on family and friends.

And most importantly, let us not forget those who have protected our nation and who stand watch over our celebration.

HOW SCREWED?

Many of my readers laugh about the “We are So Screwed” ending to my blog posts…

What they don’t realize is just how screwed we are under the Obama/Biden Administration and the progressive communist democrats who are destroying America from within.

Consider this: where is our President and Commander-in-Chief this holiday season as our enemies are swarming about, stinging whenever and wherever they can, mindful of the Administration’s policy of appeasement and leading from behind?

Once again, those progressive communist democrats and Obama acolytes running the government are shuffling Joe off the world stage before even more people realize he is technically, under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, medically unfit to serve as the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief of our military.

Bidens-never-ending-vacation
Oh, how I wish that presidential candidate Donald Trump would stay in his golf club and let Biden and his corrupt Administration implode on its own.

Bottom line…

We are so screwed.
