Yes, the jihadis are masters of terror, so other bloodthirsty and inhuman entities want to imitate them.

“Hamas Leader Abroad Khaled Mashal: The Russians Told Us That Our October 7 Operation Will Be Taught In Military Academies; The Chinese Are Thinking Of Carrying Out A Similar Attack In Taiwan,” MEMRI, October 26, 2023:

Hamas leader abroad Khaled Mashal discussed the international impact of the October 7 attack on an October 26, 2023 show on Sada Elbalad TV (Egypt). He said that the Russians have benefited from the October 7 attack because it has been keeping the U.S. distracted from the war in Ukraine. Mashal continued to claim that the Russians have said that the attack would be taught in military academies. He further said that the Chinese are considering carrying out such an attack against Taiwan. In another part of the show, Mashal stated he hopes Hizbullah will fully join the war, and he added that it will make a “real difference.” He stated that Hamas is demanding this from its friends.

Khaled Mashal: “There is no doubt that if Hizbullah joins in, it would make a real difference. We hope that this happens, but the decision is theirs. Since the beginning of the Zionist aggression and this genocidal war, they have kept the enemy busy in the northern Palestinian front. They are clashing with the enemy and the battles are constantly escalating, but they have yet to evolve into a complete engagement and an all-out war, which would split the enemy and force it to fight on two or more fronts. We are still demanding [this] from Hizbullah and from our friends and nation.


“We want the Arab communities in the West to be active, and [we want] cooperation with superpowers like China and Russia. For your information, Russia has benefitted from our [attack], because we distracted the U.S. from them and from Ukraine. China saw [our attack] as a dazzling example. The Russians told us that what happened on October 7 would be taught in military academies. The Chinese are thinking of carrying out a plan in Taiwan, doing what the Al-Qassam Brigades did on October 7. The Arabs are giving the world a master class.”

Biden’s pact with Muslim Brotherhood-linked group Emgage, and his conundrum over Hamas’ war on Israel

In early 2020, the organization Emgage launched its Million Muslim Votes campaign in order to galvanize a million Muslim Americans to vote for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. Emgage’s website stated: “The MMV campaign was our celebration and a reflection of our determination to build elections as a vehicle of change for our community’s political will.” The organization was reportedly a spectacular success in uniting Muslims voters, who turned out in unprecedented numbers in key battleground states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania. Emgage ultimately boasted that “in 2020 we helped turnout 1,087,086 registered Muslim voters. And we’re just getting started.” Emgage and Biden shook hands in a pact in which each made promises to the other. But in all pacts, there is a cost involved in fulfilling the promises; in this instance, the cost to Biden involved the reputation of Emgage, its network, how extensively it managed to infiltrate the administration, and what it all means now, given the fury by Muslims over Biden’s Israel stance.

As Israel battles Hamas, Frank Gaffney recently wrote that Biden:

engaged in outreach to one of his core constituencies: the Muslim Brotherhood. He met privately with five so-called ‘American Arab and Muslim leaders’ including: Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison; Wa’el Alzayat of Emgage, a political mobilization operation; and interfaith influence-operator Imam Mohamed Magid.’ Each has personal and/or organizational associations with the Brotherhood, a group whose Palestinian franchise, Hamas, perpetrated the horrific jihadist attack on Israel on October 7th.

Biden was in urgent damage control mode as Muslims become increasingly enraged over Israel. Take, for example, a Reuters headline: Biden’s Israel stance angers Arab, Muslim Americans; could jeopardize 2024 votesThe magnitude of Biden’s quandary is directly tied to the pact he made with Emgage. To appreciate this, a little history about Emgage is illuminating. According to Middle East Eye, one of Emgage’s first fundraising events “involved Keith Ellison, then a Congressional candidate from Minneapolis. That event in 2006 gave birth to the first iteration of Emgage as a PAC, an entity allowed to raise funds for political candidates. It also helped Ellison become the first Muslim in Congress.” In 2006, the Muslim voter advocacy group was not yet known as Emgage. It was filed as “Center for Voter Advocacy” by registered agent Khurrum Wahid, a founding member and currently the National Chair of Emgage Political Action Committee (PAC). Wahid is also an attorney “who has built his name on representing high profile terrorists”, and landed himself on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.Discover the Networks names him as “one of the country’s most prominent terror lawyers.”

Emgage’s advocacy and hard work paid off as it rose to prominence during the 2020 election cycle, but the organization’s roots and those of its influential partners were already deep in the Democrat Party prior to the Biden win. Biden addressed the Emgage Million Muslim Votes Summit online in July 2020. This event featured the infamous Linda Sarsour; Emgage CEO Wa’el Alzayat, a decorated diplomat during the Obama administration and an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University (known for its “Islamophobia” “Fact Sheets”); Nihad Awad, co-founder and Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations; and Khurrum Wahid.

Ahead of the online summit, Emgage Action created an endorsement letter signed by several prominent elected Democrat Muslim officials, including Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, and Indiana Rep. Andre Carson. Wa’el Alzayat, whom Discover the Networks reports is “one of the country’s most prominent terror lawyers,” stated:

Joe Biden’s presence serves not only to galvanize Muslim Americans to cast their ballots, but to usher in an era of engaging with Muslim American communities under a Biden administration.

At the online Summit, Khurrum Wahid stated how Muslims felt “scapegoated and marginalized,” which led to the formation of Emgage. In his introduction of Biden, he revealed the Emgage mission and why Biden was the group’s best choice for President:

That is why we have endorsed you Mr. Vice President….that is why we have you here today. This is truly an historic moment for Muslim Americans…where a presidential nominee has engaged us in such a high priority. It shows us that you care about us and our values and the issues we care about. It shows us you believe in us. Mr. Vice President, I want you to know that we believe in you…You have moved forward funding to nations with large Muslim populations… and you’ve championed the inclusion of Muslim American institutions at the policy table. And we want to partner with you to fix the societal harm of this Trump presidency….We are behind you. We have a swing state strategy and we will deliver for you Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida. We will activate large groups of voters in Texas and Arizona…we will have everyone we know to vote Joe.

NPR hailed the event: “Presidential Nominees Rarely Speak to Muslim Audiences. Biden Did Monday.” The story noted that “3,000 people RSVP’d” for Emgage’s livestreamed event with Biden. “Biden focused on Islamophobia…. He didn’t mention terrorism or Islamic extremism.” He then told the audience: “One of the things that I think is important: I wish, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” It was at this event where Biden promised: “If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on Day 1. Day 1.” Emgage made the pledge to capture more Democrat attention, where Wa’el Alzayat stated:

Emgage made it very clear that as part of our endorsement … we needed a direct engagement with Biden at a visible Muslim-led event. That was one of the clear criteria that we put out there…it’s no longer a question of whether Democrats will engage the Muslim community, but how.  There’s a recognition [in] places like Michigan that went to Trump by just 10,000 votes the importance of all these votes…According to our research, there’s about 150,000 registered Muslim voters in Michigan.

The pact between Biden and Emgage was now sealed with a tit-for-tat agreement: Biden serves the Muslim community, while Muslims deliver votes. According to the Washington Free Beacon:

Emgage has collaborated with a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group on events that in recent years attracted speakers who openly opposed LGBT rights and supported terror groups. Last year, Emgage became an official cohost of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conferences. ISNA was previously revealed to be part of the Muslim Brotherhood network.

ISNA and CAIR were both listed as unindicted co-conspirators during the Holy Land Foundation Trial. Both were deemed to be, or to have been, “part of the HAMAS social infrastructure in Israel and the Palestinian territories.”

Fast forward to March 2021, when NPR interviewed the Deputy Director of Emgage, Iman Awad, about Biden’s immediate repeal of the Trump travel ban and “what advocates want the Biden administration to do.” The mere question invoked an expectation that the incoming administration would be at the service of Emgage. This was not unreasonable, as it was exactly what Biden had established with Emgage during its summit. So Emgage was now poised to direct the new administration. As expected, the Left took up the cause. Politico reported after the fact that “nearly 1.1 million Muslim voters cast a ballot in the 2020 election, turning out in numbers large enough to swing the presidential race in key battleground states, according to a new report.” The report cited by Politico was that of Emgage itself; it describes its own political action committee (PAC)  as “the nation’s largest Muslim American bi-partisan political action committee that supports local, state, and federal candidates who share our vision of an inclusive and pluralistic America.” The group not only aims to dominate Muslim life in America, but also to represent the broader minority community under the banner of intercultural-interfaith dialogue.

On April 9, 2021, further damage to America’s security was becoming apparent, while Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ignored the real threat of jihad. He announced in a memorandum “the establishment of a Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG) to spearhead the military’s continued effort to locate and stamp out ‘extremism’ in its ranks.” Austin consistently fails upward. During the Obama administration, he was in charge at US Central Command of the fight against ISIS in Iraq, “when that nation quickly fell to the terrorist group.” See more about his background HERE.

Under Austin, “no fewer than 6 of the CEWG’s 18 members were radical Islamists who viewed the United States as a racist cesspool.” Emgage CEO Alzayat was one of them.

By now, it should be clear to anyone what the ambitions of Emgage are to unite Islamic supremacists everywhere in America, while presenting patriotic Americans as “Islamophobes”; and influencing White House policy, both domestically and abroad. Emgage diligently aims to do nothing less than steer America’s direction as it works with its most powerful ally, the President of the United States. Working as a fifth column from the highest office, the group also has global ambitions, focusing (of course) upon Palestinian interests. Hamas is, after all, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which a long list of unindicted co-conspirators with Hamas has enabled to operate through an expansive network throughout America. According to a recent news story, “Muslim American leaders, in private meeting, he needs to show more empathy toward Palestinians,” Joe Biden just hosted a core group of Muslim leaders in the White House. According to Frank Gaffney, former Assistant Secretary of Defense under Ronald Reagan and founder of the Center for Security Policy, Biden engaged “in outreach to one of his core constituencies: the Muslim Brotherhood.” The meeting included demands for an end to Israel’s defensive war on Hamas, although the participants called it a “ceasefire.”

Biden has now found himself between a rock and a hard place. He pledged to support the interests of Emgage and its network in exchange for votes. Yet America was shocked awake by Hamas’ ISIS-like attack on innocent civilians in Israel. Biden’s default mode now is remain as non-committal as possible, and even to engage in stalling tactics as he tries to keep his shaky coalition together. He appeals to humanitarian principles as he tries to keep his support base together: Muslims on the one hand, Jews on the other, and everyone in between, all while being forced to live up to expectations that the long history of American support for its ally, Israel, will continue.

The truth is becoming more apparent to mainstream America. The Democrats helped create the current crisis in the Middle East, as well as threats beyond that region). They emboldened Iran and helped fill its coffers through an outrageous deal that was based on lies and backroom deals. Consider more recent activity under Joe Biden:

  • It was discovered that Iranian spies have infiltrated the Biden administration.
  • The Biden administration’s Iran envoy Robert Malley helped “fund, support, and direct an Iranian intelligence operation designed to influence the United States and allied governments.”
  • Right before the Hamas attack on Israel, Iran seized upon a chance to get even more money from Joe Biden.
  • In an extreme act of insensitivity and even provocation to patriotic Americans, Biden announced the deal to send $6,000,000,000 to Iran in exchange for hostages on September 11, of all dates.
  • The Biden regime sent $148 million to Palestinian areas weeks before the attack on Israel.
  • The main goal of Biden’s Israel trip was to secure entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza, not to help fortify Israel against its worst enemies.

And at the private meeting at the White House, Muslim leaders appealed to Biden for “more empathy toward Palestinians.” Among the guests was Emgage CEO Alzayat; the chief of staff of Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison, who recently promoted a pro-Hamas “March for Palestine” rally in Minneapolis, at which demonstrators “called for Israel’s eradication” and used vulgar expletives to condemn Israeli “settlers”; and Imam Mohamed Magid, Executive Imam of All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center in Sterling, Virginia, former President of the Islamic Society of North America, and a big player in the “interfaith dialogue” network, serving as Chairman of International Interfaith Peace Corps. He was also recipient for the Washingtonian of the Year 2009 and the Human Rights Award 2005 from Fairfax County.

Biden now stands at a crossroads. He has pledged his support for Emgage in exchange for votes, and now the Emgage network has arrived to collect.  His public relations with Muslim Brotherhood players can only go so far now that Hamas is fully exposed. So far, Biden hasn’t been backed enough into a corner to pull a stunt that his neighbor Justin Trudeau favors in times of crises: conveniently disappear.

Maryland: Imam hails October 7 jihad massacre as a ‘great victory’

Abdel-Hady adds that given the demographics, Muslims will eventually be in control everywhere. The death of the West was largely by suicide, and one aspect of that suicide was a shift in values and perceptions, such that people began to think that having children was a liability and passing on their own traditions and heritage to those children a needless extravagance, or even an offense in light of our historical sins.

MEMRI excerpt:

“Maryland Imam Mahmoud Abdel-Hady: The Muslims and the Oppressed Will Eventually Be in Control of Things, Considering the Birth Rate of Muslims; October 7 Was a ‘Great Victory,’ Like the Viet Cong’s Tet Offensive,” MEMRI, October 21, 2023:

Mahmoud Abdel-Hady, the Imam of Maryum Islamic Center in Ellicott City, Maryland said in an October 21, 2023 lecture posted on the mosque’s YouTube channel, that eventually the Muslims and the people oppressed by Western countries “will be the ones in control of things.” He explained that this is because “we are a greater number,” and the way Muslims have children, they will be in the majority, because the Europeans are “in minus,” considering the number of children being born. He continued to say that the October 7 Hamas attack against Israel was a “great victory,” like the Viet Cong’s Tet Offensive, which he said led to the Americans leaving Vietnam.

Speaker Johnson: Hitting All the Right Notes, Annoying All the Right People

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Kerwyllen was on a crusade to prevent the further normalization of ranch dressing, Pilates, and all things Kardashian.

We may only be a few days into the Speaker Mike Johnson era, but I am enjoying it so far. Sure, he’s a politician, and the whole thing will probably end up being a huge disappointment. That’s all the more reason to kick back and have fun while we can.

While the Democrats and their flying monkeys in the mainstream media were rending their garments over “CHAOS” in the House, conservatives out here in the hinterlands were mostly just annoyed that the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden was simmering on the back burner. For a lot of people, the “business of the House” at present should be focused on getting to the bottom of how the Biden Crime Family works. We don’t know how long this Olsen Twins-thin GOP majority in the House is going to last, after all.

The good news, as Matt writes, is that Speaker Johnson is ready to roll on that front again. The best news from Matt’s post is that the new speaker says the Republicans aren’t interested in the kangaroo court antics of Democrats:

Johnson said Republicans are far more concerned about evidence.

“I know people are getting anxious and they’re getting restless and they just want somebody to be impeached,” he explained. “But that’s not — we don’t do that like the other team. We have to base it upon the evidence, and the evidence is coming together. We’ll see where it leads.”

I think we know where it’s going to lead.

One way to get a read on a relatively unknown politician is to see what’s triggering his or her political enemies.

For example, as Bonchie writes over at our sister site RedState, Johnson’s Christianity is making the lefties dyspeptic. That’s right, America, Mike Johnson is one of those Jesus people. How ever will the Republic survive this?!?!?

Bonchie’s post focuses on the remarks of commie faux journo David Corn, but others have echoed his scary Christian nonsense. Predictably, most of it revolves around abortion. They’re disappointed that the GOP didn’t find the depraved secular light and elect a rabidly pro-abortion speaker. The Dems and their media mouthpieces are having fits because they’re now stuck with a man of faith who believes in the sanctity of life being only two heartbeats away from the presidency.

As proof of how desperate the Left is to baselessly smear a guy who they know almost nothing about, Twitchy has a story about a Biden 2020 hack trying to start a narrative about Johnson being gay.

Ah, the nonjudgemental tolerance of American leftists.

If we’re giving Mike Johnson a report card based on his agenda and the knee-jerk reactions that he is forcing from some of the worst people in America, he gets “A”s all across the board.

If this is the end result of Republican chaos in the House, I wouldn’t mind if they get the itch to be chaotic again real soon.

Israel’s President: ‘The Hamas Attack Does Not Represent Islam’

Gee, that’s swell. Where are the Muslim leaders saying it?

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/israels-president-the-hamas-attack-does-not-represent-islam/;

[Make sure to read Robert Spencer’s contributions in Jamie Glazov’s new book: Barack Obama’s True Legacy: How He Transformed America.]

Israel’s President Isaac Herzog had some reassuring news for the world on Thursday: the appallingly ghastly and brutal Hamas attack on Israel doesn’t represent Islam. Herzog thus becomes the latest in a long, long line of non-Muslim leaders who are quick to assure us that the latest atrocity has nothing, nothing whatsoever, to do with what we all know and love as the warm and cuddly religion of peace.

Herzog gave us this marvelous news as he visited the southern Israeli town of Rahat and met with local officials as well as with what Israel National News called “heads of Arab local authorities in the Negev and public representatives of the Arab-Jewish war room – which helps families affected by the war.” Herzog declared: “We sincerely sympathize with the grief of the entire Arab public and the Bedouin society in particular. That’s marvelous. Now: does the Arab public and Bedouin society in particular sympathize with the grief of Israeli Jews? No doubt some do, but some don’t, and Herzog didn’t say anything about that possibility.

Instead, the ceremonial leader was anxious to sound a conciliatory note, continuing: “I tell the world that this is not a war of Jews against Muslims. It is a war between the people of light and the people of darkness, between good and evil, between doing good and doing bad, this is the war.” Well, yes, and no, Herzog. It is indeed a war between good and evil, but in this case the evil side is a classic example of what Isaiah the prophet warned about: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” (Isaiah 5:20) The people who carried out the massacre in Israel on Oct. 7 believe that the creator of the universe has ordered them to “kill them wherever you find them,” (Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, cf. 9:5), even if you have toparaglide into a music festival to do it.

Those people certainly believe that they are fighting a war of Muslims against Jews. Does Herzog really do anyone any good by denying this? On Oct. 18, the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Religious Affairs posted guidelines for preachers in mosques that quoted this hadith: “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” (Sahih Muslim 2922)

That is, President Herzog, a war of Muslims against Jews. This tradition is often described as an end-times prophecy, but it is actually a call to murder Jews so that the last hour will be hastened in coming. Certainly, not all Muslims believe in it, or in its applicability to the current situation, but blithely to ignore its existence and pretend that no Muslims at all believe in it is dangerously naïve.

Dangerously naive is just how Herzog sounded when he said: “We will all continue to live together, and it is important for me to say to the entire Arab society in Israel, how much I appreciate the responsibility and the functioning of the Arab society in these difficult days.” That’s terrific, but once Israel is out of this phase of the jihad that is intent on destroying it, Israeli officials should not shy away from investigating and confronting the loyalty to that jihad within Arab Israeli communities and emphasizing the necessity of loyalty to the state in which they hold citizenship.

Herzog also said: “But we must remember that the struggle is not really a struggle of a political nature, it is about our ability to live here in a Middle East of peace, as opposed to a Middle East of bloodshed and war. He said that the slaughter of Oct. 7 “made no sense,” ignoring the sense it makes as fulfillment of what are perceived to be divine commands written in the Qur’an.

Herzog concluded: “I will make another comment that you will accept with love. What we saw on October 7th does not represent Islam. Islam is a religion with a lot of respect sensitivity love and brotherhood. This represents an unimaginable evil that must be eliminated. Yet why is it, if this were true, that we do not see Muslim leaders condemning Hamas’ attacks? Why is it always non-Muslim leaders who constantly assure us that Islam is peaceful?

The answer is that those leaders are speaking out of ignorance and political calculation. The problem with that is that insofar as that political calculation is based on ignorance, it is doomed to fail.

The CCP-Mideast Terror Connection

Why do we know so perilously little about it?

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/the-ccp-mideast-terror-connection/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

It’s long been known that the Soviet Union was deeply involved in collaboration with and training of Middle Eastern Islamic terror groups, like the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Much of this was learned from Ion Mihai Pacepa, former chief of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Romania, who defected to the U.S. in 1978, when he walked into the U.S. Embassy in Bonn, West Germany.

The “Mitrokhin Files” added even more information about Russian sponsorship of Islamic terror. Vasiliy Mitrokhin was a KGB archivist who defected to the West in 1992, bringing out with him a treasure trove of secret documents.

Far less, however, is known about connections between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Middle East Islamic terror leaders. Mohammed Deif is Hamas’ top military commander in the Gaza Strip; he heads the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades. He is currently one of the most hunted men on earth, as Israeli commandos search for those responsible for the horrific October 7 attack against Israel that targeted, raped, abused, killed, and mutilated over 1,400 Israelis and nationals of other countries as well.

In addition to state-of-the-art weapons technology and possible assistance with an onslaught of cyberattacks against Israel, China reportedly also played a role in the education of Mohammed Deif.

According to reporting from Chinese dissident journalist Lu De, human rights activist and reporter Jennifer Zeng, the New York Postand secret documents obtained by the Lude Media network, the PLO sent Mohammed Deif to China in 1996 where he was enrolled in the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)’s Ordnance Engineering College in Shijiazhuang, China.

There he studied Artillery Technology. The CCP even provided Deif with a Chinese wife in 1998; she is a Dongxiang Muslim from China’s northwest province of Gansi, and their wedding was attended by officials of the CCP’s International Liaison Department.

A nurse, she was Deif’s third wife and also an interpreter for Deif and the PLO in China at the time. The pair returned to Gaza in 2000. Although Deif and his Chinese wife reportedly lost contact with the CCP after the 9/11 attacks, she reached out to the CCP in 2006, seeking to re-establish ties.

After suffering the loss of one leg in an Israeli air strike in 2014 that killed another of Deif’s wives and two children, she returned to China in 2015 to obtain a prosthetic leg before coming back to Gaza once again in 2019. She is reported to have maintained direct ties with Chinese President Xi Jinping ever since, providing an ongoing Hamas conduit for communications with Beijing.

At the latest count, 32 Americans were murdered in the October 7 Hamas attack against Israel. More than 1,400 Israelis and some 61 nationals of other countries were also murdered. Over 200, including Americans, are believed to be hostages of Hamas.

In close collaboration with the Iranian regime and other Hamas leaders, Mohammed Deif was the military mastermind of these attacks. And in perfect synchrony with Gazan and other Islamic media sources, the Chinese media, including social media, began spewing out incendiary antisemitic, anti-Israel invective almost immediately, claiming that Israel was carrying out indiscriminate attacks against Gazan civilians.

It is clear for all to see at this point that the CCP operates in close partnership with Iran, Russia, and Islamic terror groups like Hamas against the U.S. and our ally, the Jewish State of Israel.

While the Biden administration has expressed staunch support for Israel — and is delivering a steady stream of needed humanitarian and military assistance to it — President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken must also forthrightly call out the regimes in both Iran and China for their collaboration in the worst attack against the Jewish people since the Holocaust.

World War III is Here and We’re Losing It

While we wait for a big war that may never come, we’re losing the little ones.

[Make sure to read Daniel Greenfield’s contributions in Jamie Glazov’s new book: Barack Obama’s True Legacy: How He Transformed America.]

World War III is everywhere and nowhere. Politicians and pundits predict it and warn about it as they’ve been doing for 70 years. And for all of that time, we’ve been fighting World War III.

Is WWIII in Iran or Ukraine? Yes in its own way. Is it in the confrontations in the South China Sea, the Hamas attack on Israel, or the riots in the streets of our own cities? Also all yes. Not to mention cartels smuggling drugs and foreign influence operations being run in D.C.

And it’s in a thousand other incidents and crises, some that make the news and some that don’t, but that are all around us and others that have long become part of our history. It’s all WWIII.

“I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones,” Einstein was quoted as saying. But Albert was as good at physics as he was bad at politics and he had it the wrong way around. It’s WWIII that‘s fought with stones.

The atomic bomb, but not just it, had ended world wars as we knew them. Even more decisively than Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the United States had conclusively demonstrated that nations with superior production capacities combined with manpower and technological advancement will win any world war. For the Soviet Union, a world war against the country whose factories had supplied it with everything it needed to beat the Nazi war machine was unthinkable.

Instead the Soviet Union launched its own third world war fought not with atom bombs, but in some cases with stones and sticks, but mostly a political war that depended on spreading Communism, building third world alliances, and subverting America from within. It won that war even as its politics and economics imploded, finally leading to the fall of the Soviet Union.

While the United States was the last man standing in the Cold War, after paying a bloody price from Korea to Vietnam to the Middle East, it had inherited a world order shaped by the USSR. America had built multinational institutions, beginning with the United Nations, that had been hijacked by what we, in less politically correct times, would have called ‘subversives’.

Asia, Latin America and the Middle East were dominated by socialist and nationalist movements that had been allied with the Soviet Union and shaped by its Communist ideologies. All that the fall of the USSR did was cut off some of the funding. It also encouraged China to step into Russia’s place as a much more credible peer rival to the United States and the West.

But it wasn’t China that picked up the Soviet mantle: it was the Islamists, many of whom we had nurtured as anti-Communists. From Iran to the Muslim Brotherhood, they were the ones with a global vision, a knack for running secret organizations and a murderous belief system that was just as compelling to its adherents as Communism was to its acolytes earlier in the 20th century.

While most people still think of WWIII as some grandiose phenomenon in which nuclear weapons will rain from the sky leaving behind a poisonous wasteland filled with lurching zombies, the real world war was being fought before many of us were born. WWIII does look like Ukraine, but it also looks like Vietnam and like Iran bombing the Marine Barracks 40 years ago. And it’s also China stealing our technological secrets and barraging us with propaganda.

WWIII is small scale and deep. It’s compact proxy wars that fall short of a nuclear exchange. It’s information warfare that exploits our weaknesses. and It’s ideological, economic and social. Instead of nuclear explosions, it’s narrow territorial conflicts, it’s influencers on social media spreading lies and it’s hacking attacks. It’s death by a thousand cuts rather than one big smash.

The winners and losers of the first two world wars were conditioned by their history to think of a world war as something apocalyptic, but WWIII as it is now is being fought by nations and movements that were on the sidelines or bit players in those conflicts, but who have absorbed the post-war strategies of those wars that terrorism, guerrilla warfare, influence campaigns, economic warfare and limited hostilities are better tools of ju-jitsu against great powers.

The WWIII that so many imagined never came because we were the victims of our own success. With or without nuclear weapons, no one wanted to fight an unrestricted global war against us so they found ways to undermine us, to tie us down and small wars to drag us into. They focused on undermining our morale, fracturing our society, turning our youth against us, corrupting our morals, buying out our economy and invading us through immigration.

While we still keep waiting for a big war to begin, our enemies have been winning it. World War III is here and we’re losing it because we don’t see what’s going on around us as a war.

And so we never really fight back.

A world war plays to our strengths and our enemies, from the Soviet Communists of the Cold War to the Chinese Communists of today, from the local and international Marxist and Islamist coalitions, prefer to exploit our weaknesses. We may have the strongest army, but the worst internal security. There is nothing stopping foreign enemies from robbing us, ripping us off or just walking across the border. We hate the idea of war so we bribe our enemies to leave us alone, to return our citizens that they have taken hostage, and to win their hearts and minds.

Why try to tangle with an Abrams tank or an A-10 when you can bribe our politicians, corrupt our universities and fund terrorist groups to attack us around the world. That’s the real WWIII.

Americans have a weakness of thinking that history begins and ends, that it explodes outward in world-changing events, when history is just a record of the things going on around us. The world wars were not abrupt cataclysms that divided the past and the future, they were extensions of events that had been underway. War has a way of marking periods in time, but the absence of great wars is not an absence of history: it just means that they are being fought by other means.

Our unhealthy obsession with World War III has all too often blinded us to what is going on around us. We did not take Islamic terrorism seriously because our enemies seemed too small and backward. And we only view small wars in terms of their risk of exploding into big wars as if the only wars that really matter are the ones that might lead to the ‘Big One’.

Instead of fighting a war as we imagine it to be, we need to be ready to win the ones we’re in.

Anti-semitic lynch mob storms Russia's Dagestan airport hunting for Jews. The riot took place in Muslim-majority Dagestan, in the Caucasus. And began when a plane from Tel Aviv landed in Makhachkala city. In nearby Khasavyurt, people also stormed the Hotel Flamingo and went room-to-room looking for any Jewish people inside. Police had to be called to both locations to deal with the crowds. It follows a surge in anti-Semitism due to Hamas’s attack on Israel and Israel’s subsequent invasion of the Gaza Strip.

An empty threat? Probably, but not necessarily. Erdogan has made no secret of his expansionist designs for years. Still, while the Turks may be eager to join the fight, the Arabs might not be so happy to see them. Memories of Turkish rule in the area are not pleasant.

UN votes overwhelmingly for immediate ‘humanitarian truce’ in Gaza

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2023/10/un-votes-overwhelmingly-for-immediate-humanitarian-truce-in-gaza;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The United Nations has voted to call for an immediate “humanitarian truce” in Gaza. What this means is that the UN is demanding that Israel halt its war against Hamas, which aims to destroy Israel by any means possible, no matter how barbaric.

In every war, the worst collateral damage is human lives. This is obviously not a war that Israel wanted to have, but one that aims to obliterate the lethal threat of Hamas, which has justly been likened to the Islamic State. While the UN and Palestinian sympathizers are demonizing Israel, nothing is really different. Israel was always a target, despite the jihad against it.

According to the Times of Israel:

The initiative is completely symbolic but highlights the overwhelming international support for the Palestinians amid Israel’s military campaign following the October 7 Hamas onslaught.

Many in the mainstream media are also complicit in the unfair targeting of Israel. by minimizing the reason for the war on Hamas. Take for instance the necessity of World War II. Some seventy-five million people died; among them were 40 million civilians, many of which included children. There was no UN to call for an immediate “humanitarian” ceasefire on a war against the Nazis. In short, “war is hell“; there is no softening it for countries that respect human life. The choice for war is only made in the face of an extreme threat.

Hamas is also blocking civilians from leaving, in order to rack up casualties in its propaganda war against Israel, while the complicit media collectively downplays this fact while bombarding the public with information about suffering Palestinians, especially kids.

“UN general assembly calls for immediate humanitarian truce in Gaza as Israel expands ground operation,” by Léonie Chao-Fong,  Ashifa Kassam, and Helen Sullivan, Guardian, October 27, 2023:

The UN’s general assembly has overwhelmingly called for an immediate humanitarian truce in Gaza.

The resolution, drafted by Arab states, passed with 120 votes in favor, while 45 abstained and 14 – including Israel and the US – voted no.

1 in 10 American Jews Support Hamas

Jews for Jewish Genocide.

On October 18, Hamas supporters stormed the United States Capitol and rallied in the Canon Rotunda against the Israeli campaign to stop the Islamic terrorist group. While many of the insurrectionists were Islamist and non-Jewish leftist activists, the event was linked to two veteran anti-Israel organizations: Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow.

There has always been a pro-terrorist fringe among American Jews exemplified by organizations such as these two, along with others such as J Street, the Israel Policy Forum, the New Israel Fund, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, T’ruah, and other anti-Israel groups. And while they have generally boasted more organizations than members, a new poll raises the question of what percentage of American Jews supports Hamas and the killing of Jews.

The answer in one poll is deeply troubling.

Cygnal polled Muslims and Jews in America. It found that 57% of Muslims believed that Hamas atrocities against Jews were justified. However, a less widely reported result found that 11.5% of American Jews also agreed that Hamas was justified.

3.6% of American Jews “strongly agreed” that Hamas was justified while another 7.9% “somewhat agreed.”

While the vast majority of American Jews, 88.5% disagreed, there is a distinct minority of people who were born Jewish that supports killing Jews.

And supports Hamas.

Hamas Leader Ismail Haniyeh enjoys a 7.2% favorability rating among American Jews.

When asked if knowing that “Hamas is nothing but a proxy for Iran and is funded and supported by Iran. Would you be more or less likely to vote for a political candidate who supports releasing billions of dollars in frozen assets for Iran to use any way it chooses”, 10.8% of American Jews would be more likely to vote for such a candidate.

1 in 10 American Jews supports the murder of Jews. Not to mention the rape, torture, kidnapping, and dismembering of Jews. That is the JVP, IfNotNow, J Street, and T’ruah demographic.

Polls are flawed and Cygnal dramatically oversamples Reform who make up 44.7% of the poll, but only 37% of American Jews, and Orthodox and Conservative Jews barely make up a quarter of the respondents, but the poll likely does reflect some percentage of American Jews.

They are the ones who rallied for Hamas in the Capitol and who, like Anna Epstein at Boston University, can be seen tearing down the posters showing the kidnapped women and children.

Anti-Israel groups over the years have claimed that they don’t support terrorism. Even the IfNotNow and JVP rallies operate under the false flag of calling for a ceasefire. Their allies from J Street to JFREJ to T’ruah use similarly misleading language. Some even claim to be advocating for the hostages. This is often enhanced by theatrical performances inappropriately using borrowed Jewish rituals such as a shofar, a tallit and the recitation of Kaddish, the mourning prayer, for Islamic terrorists.

In reality, IfNotNow’s first statement after the Hamas rape, torture, kidnapping, and murder of Israelis asserted that “we cannot and will not say today’s actions by Palestinian militants are unprovoked. Every day under Israel’s apartheid system is a provocation.” It made no mention of Hamas but only claimed that the “blood is on the hands” of America and Israel.

But what the poll really lays bare is the worldview of Hamas supporters with Jewish last names. It does so without any of the dishonest language, the equivocation, or the changes of subject that form the essence of their anti-Israel arguments. Asked if they support Hamas, they do.

It’s that simple and it was always that simple.

There is a percentage of American Jews whose leftist politics are so extreme that they back Hamas and the mass killing of Jews. We don’t know exactly what percent it is, is it really 11.5% or 7% or 3.6%. What we do know is that members of this group routinely lie and mislead about what they believe. They talk about peace when what they’re after is war. When they advocate for a ‘ceasefire’, what they really want is the unrestricted ability by Hamas to kill Jews.

They are not just opposed to the policies of a “right-wing Israeli government” or any Israeli government, they have a favorable view of Ismail Haniyeh: the leader of Hamas, who had bragged that the Islamic terror group would win because it loved death while “the Jews love life more than any other people, and they prefer not to die”.

They aren’t actually advocating for a deal with Iran, they just want an end to all sanctions on Iran even if it supports Hamas and even in the absence of any actual deal to end its nuclear program.

What does the anti-Israel fringe of the Jewish community support?

Israel released a recording of a Hamas terrorist excitedly calling his parents to tell them, “Father, I killed 10 Jews! Check your WhatsApp! I sent you the photos! Father, I killed 10 Jews! I killed 10 Jews with my bare hands. check your WhatsApp. Father, be proud of me!”

How did we get to the point where any percentage of American Jews support Hamas?

Another poll, from Harvard/Harris, found that 16% of Americans side with Hamas and 24% agreed that “the Hamas killing of 1200 Israeli civilians in Israel can be justified by the grievances of Palestinians.”

This was an opinion held by 31% of Democrats and 36% of self-described liberals. People with college degrees (29%) were more likely to support Hamas atrocities than people with only some college (21%). Urbanites (40%) were far more likely to believe that the murder of Israeli women and children was justified than suburban (17%) or rural (13%) residents. Those making $75,000 or more were more often Hamas supporters (33%) than those making less (19%) and blacks (33%), and Hispanics (28%) justified the murder of Jews more than white people did (21%).

The poll didn’t assemble the percentage of Hamas support from urban (40%) liberals (36%) with college (29%) degrees, but it’s a good bet that it’s between a third and a half of them.

That also is a good description of a sizable percentage of American Jews.

A third of American Jews do not support Hamas, but when they are immersed in an environment that does, especially on college campuses, is it any surprise that some do?

When 21% of liberals admit that they side with Hamas, some Jewish leftists will do it too.

Move to a neighborhood full of Nazis, enroll your kids in schools where there are daily chants of “Heil Hitler” during lunchtime and students are taught of the greatness of the Third Reich, and the odds of your kids coming home goosestepping vastly increases. Even if they’re Jewish.

Jews in America have become part of a cultural community that has supported leftist terrorism for at least half a century. Some never abandoned their admiration for Communism, others saw the Marxist terrorists of the counterculture as noble idealists, and some now celebrate Hamas.

American Jews are much less likely to support their own killing, kidnapping, and torture than the average liberal (36%), but as many as 1 in 10 may be willing to accept Jewish genocide as the price of social justice. In the early days of the Soviet Union, the Yevsektsia, or Jewish Section, made up of people who were born Jewish, was the most ruthless in wiping out Judaism and Zionism. Today, IfNotNow, J Street, and Jews for Racial & Economic Justice take up the banner.

The Hamas atrocities and the reaction to it are a reality check. Some Jewish liberals recoil in horror at the implications of the ideology of social justice, while others double down and embrace it. They claim that they want peace, but the Cygnal poll shows what they really want is dead Jews.

Rockefeller Brothers Fund has given millions to groups working with Hamas and other jihadis

“Rockefeller Brothers Fund Funneled Millions to Hamas, Other Terrorists,” by Frank Bergman, Slay, October 27, 2023:

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) has funneled millions of dollars to Hamas and other deadly terrorist groups, according to a new report.

The RBF was founded by the five third-generation Rockefeller brothers: John, Nelson, Laurance, Winthrop, and David, all of whom are now deceased.

The organization portrays itself as a philanthropic foundation that seeks to “contribute to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.”

However, a new report reveals that it has contributed more than $3.4 million to Hamas and other terrorist groups since 2018.

Andrew Kerr of the Washington Free Beacon expounded on this matter, naming several groups that benefited from RBF money.

One such group is Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCI Palestine), an extension of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

The group, which employs senior PFLP members, has received $165,000 from the RBF since 2018 to promote flawed research that seeks to de-legitimize Israel.

Because of this, the Israeli government declared DCI-Palestine a terrorist organization in October 2021.

Another recipient of RBF money is Education for Just Peace in the Middle East, a national organization working toward freedom, justice, and equality.

The group, which has received $580,000 in funding since 2018, was later accused of using its charity status to fund Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist organizations.

Jewish Voice for Peace has also received $490,000 from the RBF since 2019.

Protesters associated with the group reportedly entered a congressional office building to speak out against Israel on October 18.

This resulted in the arrest of roughly 300 demonstrators.

Aside from the three organizations he mentioned, Kerr said the RBF has given more than $2.2 million to other groups that have either justified pro-Hamas actions or blamed Israel for the October 7 terrorist attack….

Bay Ridge, Brooklyn NYC 10.21.22: Palestine Protestors Arrested, Climbing Bus, Thousands Marching

10.22.23 | By Usman & Adam | BAY RIDGE, Brooklyn- At least 25 people were arrested tonight on Fifth Ave and 67th St as Pro Palestine demonstrators wanted to continue to march on Fifth Ave. Police prevented the protests from continuing as the permit for protest expired. Protesters claim that Police started to fight with protesters and pulled a woman’s Hijab or Headscarf off during the fight. All of the arrested protesters are said to be on their way to One Police Plaza. Protests began Peacefully at 2 pm after which a Muslim Prayer Service was held first then the thousands of protesters marched through Bay Ridge the heart of the Arab-American community in NYC. However some younger protesters throughout the afternoon and evening began to tag light posts and cars with pro-Palestine stickers, and also began to climb stop lights with one group climbing an MTA Bus caught in the protests. Police presence was heavy throughout the day. Organizers want to highlight the ongoing plight of Palestinians living in Gaza and want to implement a ceasefire to the two week conflict between Hamas and Israel.

NYC LIVE Protest on Brooklyn Bridge (October 28, 2023)

More than 7,000 pro-Hamas protesters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, shutting it down briefly, chanting anti-Semitic slogans. and calling for the elimination of the Jewish State “by any means.”  The “Flood Brooklyn for Gaza” protest was held on Shabbat — something Jewish leaders pointed out was almost certainly a deliberate snub.

“It’s not an accident that pro-Hamas activists would pick this place to protest Jews,” said former City Councilman David Greenfield, a Brooklyn Democrat.

The significance of the protest site was not lost on New York’s Hasidic Jewish community. The marchers wound their way through Crown Heights, home to thousands of Hasidic Jews. Orthodox Rabbi Motti Seligson, 41, of Crown Heights noted that the march was scheduled at the same time as an annual gathering where more than 1,000 Hasidic college students from around the world come to Crown Heights.

“We’re seeing forces of evil that are promoting murder genocide of Israelis and civilians in Gaza because of the support for the terrorist elements that are in their midst,” he said.

The pro-Hamas rally proved to be fun for all ages.

New York Post:

Earlier, Marie Edward, 67, of Sunset Park, held a sign reading “Zionism is terrorism” while watching others march along Eastern Parkway.

She accused Israelis of being the real “killers” and defended Hamas’ heinous Oct. 7 massacre.

“It’s not a question of ‘justified.’ If you are occupied, you fight back and do what they did…they will fight back,” she said.

One of the protesters was just 15 years old and bore a sign reading, “F–k Israel all my homies hate Israel” — a mockery of the Middle Eastern country made in the format of an internet meme.

“They do it too, only worse” is hardly a compelling argument.

Some ralliers were blatantly heard screaming, “Long Live Hamas as they paraded past the corner of 4th Avenue and East 13th Street.

The massive protest culminated at Union Square, with hundreds flooding lower Manhattan Park..

A makeshift basketball hoop was erected on the pavement out of Banksy’s iconic poster of a young girl releasing a heart balloon and multiple alternate side parking signs.

The amateur display read: “F–K ISRAEL. That’s what New Yorkers are saying”

If you peruse other news headlines on the rally, you’ll see that most news outlets identify the protest as a march for a “ceasefire in Gaza.” Looking at the signage and listening to the marchers screaming for Jewish blood, that’s a deliberate falsification. The march was for the elimination of the Jewish state and the people who lived in it.

Speaker Johnson: Joe Biden Impeachment Is Back on, Baby

When Kevin McCarthy was ousted as Speaker, much of the business of the House came to a grinding halt. One of my biggest concerns with the prolonged divisive process of finding a new speaker was that we’d get a speaker who wasn’t interested in pursuing the impeachment of Joe Biden.

Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that the newly elected Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), is ready to get the impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden rolling again.

“Joe Biden swore to the American people—both as a candidate and as president, not one time did he ever speak to his son, his brother, or anybody for that matter, about their foreign business dealings. We know that was a flat-out lie,” Hannity began. “We’ve learned from James Comer and his investigation that we’re talking about tens of millions of dollars taken in from a lot of adversarial countries, some of our top geopolitical foes—like China, Russia—Ukraine, Romania, Mexico, other countries. Tens of millions. They’ve discovered all of these shell corporations. They’ve discovered nine particular Biden family members have been paid. And then you have the issue of Joe on tape admitting that he used our money, taxpayer money, to leverage a billion dollars in loan guarantees—which was Obama administration policy—to fire a prosecutor investigating his son. Well, one of the benefits of that is his son continued to get paid for a job he admits he had no experience in at a time when he was dealing with a drug problem. What does that sound like to you?”

“That’s a pretty good recitation of the facts, and as John Adams said, ‘Facts are stubborn things,’ they’re hard to ignore. I believe the documents prove all that, as my good brother Jamie Comer often says, ‘the bank records don’t lie.’ So, we have the receipts on so much of this now,” Johnson explained to Fox News host Sean Hannity Friday, a clear reference to the evidence already uncovered by the House Oversight Committee. “It’s a real problem.”

Related: Biden Can’t Shake the Taint of Corruption Allegations

“That’s the reason that we shifted into the impeachment inquiry stage on the president himself because if, in fact, all the evidence leads to where we believe it will, that’s very likely impeachable offenses,” he added. “That’s listed as a cause for impeachment in the Constitution — bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Bribery is listed there, and it looks and smells a lot like that… We’re going to follow the truth where it leads, we’re going to engage in due process because, again, we’re the rule of law party.”

Johnson also made it clear that Republicans aren’t going to rush the process as Democrats had with Trump. Democrats, determined to impeach Trump before he even took office, broke precedent in order to get two partisan impeachments on the books, if for no other reason than to taint Trump’s legacy.

“He’s been impeached forever,” Pelosi said after House Democrats impeached him over a phone call in January 2020. “They can never erase that.”

Johnson said Republicans are far more concerned about evidence.

“I know people are getting anxious and they’re getting restless and they just want somebody to be impeached,” he explained. “But that’s not — we don’t do that like the other team. We have to base it upon the evidence, and the evidence is coming together. We’ll see where it leads.”

Biden Asks GOP For Help On Gun Violence, Faces Backlash

President Joe Biden isn’t letting a tragedy go to waste and is urging Republicans in Congress to help keep Americans safe from “gun violence” after mass shootings in Maine.

Speaking at a campaign fundraiser in Washington Friday night, Biden called for new gun control legislation in the wake of the mass shooting in Maine.

Biden reportedly asked, “Who the hell needs an assault weapon that can hold, in some cases, up to 100 rounds?”

In a subsequent post on Saturday, Biden promised to use everything in power to end the so-called “gun violence epidemic,” by “calling Republicans in Congress to fulfill their obligation to keep Americans safe.”

Biden’s renewed calls for gun control have been met with strong opposition from congressional Republicans and gun advocacy groups, including the National Rifle Association, a major lobbying organization strongly opposed to broad gun control legislation.

Some Republican lawmakers have argued instead for legislation to address mental health issues and limit gun access to people deemed dangerous.

In months leading up to Wednesday’s attack in Lewiston, Maine that left 18 people dead, the shooter, Robert Card was reportedly checked into a mental health facility after complaining of voices and making threats.

Card was found dead Friday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

At least 200 people have been arrested during a protest in the Grand Central Station in New York City demanding a cease-fire in the Israel-Palestine War.

Hundreds of activists, wearing black T-shirts with the slogans “Jews say cease-fire now” and “Not in our name,” were detained by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers and brought out of the train station, their hands zip-tied behind their backs during rush hour on Friday. 

The NYPD stated that the demonstrators were momentarily detained, issued summonses, and then released and that a more precise number of detentions would be available on Saturday.

Some protesters carried flags as they ascended the stone ledges in front of departure time leaderboards. 

After police broke up the sit-in, the remaining demonstrators streamed into the streets outside.

One of the groups involved appears to be a group called “Jewish Voices For Peace,” which posted on X, the social media formerly known as Twitter announcing that they are “taking over.” 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said in a statement that it is sad that the organization chose rush hour to organize a protest when New Yorkers were trying to get home, but it is proud of both MTA officers and NYPD officers for their professionalism.

Commuters were advised to use Penn Station as an option by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Just What the World Needs: A Woke Pope

Just What the World Needs: A Woke Pope

In 452, an unarmed and unaccompanied Pope Leo I met Attila the Hun outside the gates of Rome and singlehandedly persuaded him not to sack the city.  In 1095, Pope Urban II gave a rousing speech to the assembled nobles in Clermont, France, which launched the first of a series of Crusades to liberate the Holy Land from the bloodthirsty Turks.  In 1801, Pope Pius VII successfully negotiated a concordat with Emperor Napoleon, effectively protecting religious freedoms for Catholics and Protestants alike from the oppressive zeal of the revolutionary Left.

In 2023, Pope Francis wagged his finger and decried pet owners as guilty of “selfishness.”

For better or worse, whether people like it or not, the Catholic pope is the most influential leader in Christendom.  From the coronation of Charlemagne to the dissolution of the Soviet Empire and beyond, no other Christian figurehead carries as much spiritual or diplomatic weight. The papacy funded the first universities, global exploration, scientific development, and the European Renaissance. It bore the brunt of the Jacobin Terror and pulled Christianity through the dark ages of 19th-century nihilistic rationalism and 20th-century atheistic communism.

The bimillennial history of the papacy has seen its share of both good and bad popes. The Left likes to bleat about keeping religion out of politics. But those versed in religious history know the main problems occur when politics tries to intrude into religion, not vice versa. Most of Catholicism’s bad popes were those too corrupt or too weak to keep political interests from intruding onto their temporal turf. It was during times when popes were able to prevent or undo political intrusion into religion that Christianity flourished.

Enter Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis).

Shortly after becoming pope, he made waves at his first impromptu press conference. When asked about the idea of gay clergy, Francis famously replied, “Who am I to judge?” And, oh, how the press fell all over themselves. How they fawned and swooned. How they chuckled and swayed and surged forth to touch his flowing robes. Not because they agree with biblical teachings on judgment, mind you, but because they (correctly) saw in Francis their long-awaited Manchurian candidate.

Since that staged comment, Francis has made plenty of judgments.

Against whom, you tenderly ask with an inquisitive ear? Against the two Muslim “youths” who cut the throat of 85-year-old Father Jacques Hamel as he was performing Mass at his church in St.-Etienne-du-Rouvray? Francis had nothing to say about them at all, other than to clarify for us the true motive for their attack, about which he stated, “It’s war… a war of interests, for money, resources. I am not speaking of a war of religions. Religions don’t want war. The others want war.” Gotcha. That video the killers made in which they pledge allegiance to ISIS, along with multiple attempts to travel to Syria to fight in its ranks, made for quite the diversions.

And the Afghan “youth” who attacked traingoers with an axe in Wurzburg while yelling “Allahu Akbar”? Or the Syrian “refugee” who blew up a music festival in Ansbach because Germans “obstruct Islam”? Or the ISIS terrorist who killed 84 people with his truck in Nice, France, in a war against “crusader states”? Were they all motivated by the evils of capitalism as well?

Per Francis, they’re not the problem. The problem is Europeans attempting to prevent millions of military-age men from the Islamic world from arriving. Those who attempt to deter such illegal arrivals, says Francis, are exhibiting “gestures of hate against brothers,” made possible by the “fanaticism of indifference.” Hate and indifference. That’s how Pope “WhoAmIToJudge” judges anyone who disagrees with him on immigration policy.

Ah, but immigration is his pet issue, you say. He’s allowed to get a little rambunctious about it, which would explain why he told a crowd of teenagers in Verona to “make noise” about immigration issues. Don’t pray, don’t sacrifice your time volunteering, don’t offer your lodgings or other resources, and certainly don’t lead by example. Make noise. Be good little activists.

But wait, Francis has more judgment to deal with because he has another pet issue. In November, Francis will travel to Dubai to discuss… Israel’s right to self-defense? Support for religious minorities in the Muslim world? Support for women’s rights? Nope. The world’s most influential voice for the abandoned and oppressed will be discussing (drumroll) climate change!!!  We have “ecological sins” to repent for, you see. And by “we,” he means only Westerners, specifically Americans. Neither the Chinese Communist government nor any other tin pot dictatorship needed to lie awake at night fearing Francis’s vigilant gaze. It will fall upon our unrepentant shoulders to bear his wrath for the sin of making Greta Thunberg’s life miserable.

On other issues, Francis is blatantly contradictory. He has long referred to weapons manufacturers as “merchants of death.” He chides European nations for not giving enough of these same weapons to Ukraine, decisions he blames bizarrely on the arms industry. He rants against American burning of fossil fuels but can’t unequivocally condemn Hamas terrorists who burn alive entire families.

But who or what can fill the void? The Anglican Church? The current Archbishop of Canterbury is totally on board with “affirming” the wrong gender for kindergarteners. The previous Archbishop of Canterbury said that sharia law in England will be “unavoidable,” so the backwoods Tory clingers might as well get with the program. The Orthodox Church? Its biggest denomination, the Russian branch, is Putin’s puppet. One of the myriad American denominations, the Presbyterians and whatnot? The PCUSA is too busy adorning their apses with pride flags and BLM banners to notice their pews emptied a long time ago.

Christendom is not in a good place right now.  The Vicar of Peter is currently George Soros in a miter, and most other Christian leaders follow the latest Quinnipiac poll rather than the Bible. Lately, the only Christian official who seems to be doing any actual fighting in defense of the faith is a French nun who chased down and tackled some pansy environmental activist whom she caught destroying building materials intended for a chapel.

The real question is what the Catholic Church will do once Francis retires or dies. Was Francis an unintended mistake, a Bud Light moment for the church? Or will it continue down this woke path? A course correction would obviously be the ideal scenario not just for the Catholic Church but for all of Christendom. Until that happens, Christians the world over are on their own. For those Christians living among Francis’s “brothers” in Sudan and Pakistan, it’s a death sentence, with each passing day simply a matter of borrowed time. For those Christians living in China, the totalitarian sewer where Francis never met a government official whose boots he didn’t eagerly lick clean, public professions of faith get you permanent vacation in the gulag.

Just this month, Italian police reinforced security at the Vatican, complete with bulletproof vests and machine guns, in response to an Islamic terror attack in Brussels. Keep in mind the two cities are 915 miles apart. That’s like an American president upping security for this entourage in Chicago because there was a shooting in Dallas.

But being woke affords you these double standards. The octogenarian priests getting their throats cut aren’t privy to machine-gun wielding guards, just as the Hollywood jet set isn’t expected to “go green” by flying commercial where they might make eye contact with the hoi polloi, and just as the Martha’s Vineyard folks aren’t forced to fill their hotels, airports, and police station lobbies with illegals the way the rest of us are.

Pope Francis is a base political animal of the abominable liberation theology strain. Let’s hope the College of Cardinals runs better background checks at the next papal election.

Biden regime has sent over $1,000,000,000 to UN agency described as ‘effectively a branch of Hamas’

Which side are Old Joe and his henchmen really on? That’s obvious.

“Palestinian group accused of harboring terrorists received $1B from Biden admin: report,” by Edward Lawrence, Andrew Miller, and Lauren Shank, Fox Business, October 18, 2023:

FIRST ON FOX: The Biden administration has sent more than $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to a Palestinian relief organization that has previously been accused of providing safe harbor to terrorists in Gaza, drawing increased scrutiny amid Hamas’ attacks on Israel.

In a report exclusively obtained by FOX Business, watchdog OpenTheBooks.com found that the taxpayer money was sent to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), whose schools were accused in a recent report of being complicit in teaching children to hate Jewish people and praising terrorism.

Critics and watchdog groups also say UNRWA resources may help Hamas with recruitment and storage for weapons, along with other support.

According to the UNRWA’s website, the group works with Palestinians doing “human development and humanitarian services, encompass primary and vocational education, primary health care, relief, and social services, infrastructure and camp improvement, microfinance and emergency response, including in situations of armed conflict.”

However, U.N. Watch and IMPACT released a report in March, uncovering 100 pages of evidence that schools built and run by the UNRWA taught hate toward the Jewish people and glorified terrorism.

The UNRWA Islamic education exam asks students whether “Liberating the Al-Aqsa Mosque and making sacrifices for it is an obligation for all Muslims” is true or false. The exam cited the statement as true and noted that violence and martyrdom to free Al-Aqsa are obligations for Palestinians and “all Muslims.”

In 2014, the left-leaning New Republic described UNRWA as “effectively a branch of Hamas.”

UNRWA acknowledged in 2014, and condemned, Hamas missiles that were found at one of its schools in Gaza twice in one week….

Two Dozen US Soldiers Injured in Iran-Backed Attacks Last Week

The ayatollahs are getting impatient that their $6 billion check from Biden hasn’t arrived.

The ayatollahs are getting impatient that their $6 billion check hasn’t arrived in the mail. And they do like celebrating the 40th anniversary of their great triumph… the Marine Barracks bombing.

So they spent a little time trying to kill American soldiers. Again.

At least two-dozen American military personnel based in Iraq and Syria were injured in drone attacks last week that officials said were launched by Iran-backed proxy groups.

The largest attack carried out against a US base was on Oct. 18 when 20 troops suffered “minor injuries,” after numerous one-way drones targeted the al-Tanf Garrison in southeastern Syria, US military officials said, according to the Washington Post.

On the same day, multiple drones also targeted the US and its allies in two different attacks on Ain al-Asad Air Base in western Iraq that left four people with minor injuries, the Washington Post reported. Those injured also returned to duty.

A US citizen working as a contractor died the same day after he went into cardiac arrest during a shelter-in-place order at the base.

The Pentagon has said the groups behind the attacks are supported by Iran and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

It’s natural to assume that this is a response to the current situation in the region, but the depressing thing is that it’s not even new.

The two elements that jump out at most people (1. Iran launching attacks on U.S. bases and (2. the White House not even mentioning it… have been around for quite a while.

Here’s my article on it from Jan 2022.

Two more terror drones targeted American forces deployed to fight ISIS at the Al Asad air base. The base has been repeatedly hammered by Iran-backed rocket attacks over the past year, most notably when 14 rockets struck the base over the summer causing several injuries.

There were repeated Iran-backed rocket strikes against Americans in Iraq throughout the last year totaling an estimated 25 separate attacks under the Biden administration.

On September 11, two drones launched an attack on U.S. forces at Erbil International Airport.

Then, as now, the Biden administration limited American military personnel to defensive preventative air strikes against the Shiite terror groups carrying out the attacks.

This was going on long before the current Hamas attack and the Israeli response. Or before we directed more forces to the region.

American soldiers have been killed and worse still, we’re funding their killers. And I don’t just mean with that $6 billion.

While some U.S. conflicts with Jihadists in the region are old news, Kataeb Hezbollah fired rockets at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad in 2019 and has bombed U.S. bases in recent years. Kataeb Hezbollah killed two American soldiers in 2020: Army Spc. Juan Miguel Mendez Covarrubias and Air Force Staff Sgt. Marshal D. Roberts.

Politicians and the media have mostly ignored the fact that Americans are continuing to be killed in Iraq, that the Iraqi government is funding their killers, and that we’re funding Iraq.

While Iraq funds Iran’s terror militias, the United States funds the UN Development Programme to “stabilize” Iraq and has invested over $100 million into “conflict, peace and security” funding.

The United States has spent over $1 billion financing the nation’s military while Iraq spends billions financing the Iranian PMU terror militias which are expected to approach a quarter of a million Jihadis.

Did you hear any mention of Air Force Staff Sgt. Marshal D. Roberts?

On March 14, 2020, Roberts lost his life when enemy fire engaged with his unit at Camp Taji. With rockets flying, Roberts and his friend took cover. They discussed running to a bunker but not without considering if they could make it to safety. Roberts told his fellow Airmen to go and get her body armor. As his friend left, a rocket landed, taking his life. In losing his own, Roberts saved another.

Her body armor.

Do we talk about any of this? No. And then suddenly we notice it and wonder what’s going on. Iran keeps attacking us and trying to kill us. And Biden keeps trying to cut a deal while warning against offending Iran.

Meet HOUSE SPEAKER Mike Johnson: 5 Things You Need to Know About Him

Meet Mike Johnson: 5 Things You Need to Know About Our New House Speaker

Now that the dust has settled on the election for House Speaker, it’s time to learn more about the man the House chose to lead it. Who is Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), and why is he a good choice to lead the House?

Mike Johnson is a 51-year-old attorney from Benton, La., who has represented Louisiana’s 4th district since 2017. That district stretches from the northwest corner to the center of the Pelican State. It’s a solid red district that has stayed Republican since 1997, and Johnson lives there with his wife, two daughters, and two sons.

But beyond the surface, there are plenty of reasons why Johnson is a wise choice for House Speaker. Here are just a few of them.

He’s a faithful Christian who fights for life and religious liberty.

Johnson doesn’t hide his deep Christian faith, and he allows it to guide his policy-making decisions. He’s solidly pro-life and has called for a nationwide ban on abortion. (Yes, I know your mileage may vary on that tactic, but it does demonstrate how committed he is to protecting the unborn.) He also unabashedly supports the traditional family.

“A just government protects life, honors marriage and family as the primary institutions of a healthy society, and embraces the vital cultural influences of religion and morality,” reads Johnson’s House website.

Johnson even put his money where his mouth is when it comes to his faith, serving as an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom, an effective legal organization that helps protect religious liberty.

“So we are talking about a self-consciously committed evangelical Christian,” Albert Mohler summarized in his Briefing on Thursday. “We’re talking about an attorney who has put his reputation on the line to defend religious liberty. We’re talking about someone who clearly is willing to identify with evangelical Christians as an evangelical Christian, and he comes with a great deal of experience, not only as a legislator, both in Louisiana and now in the House of Representatives, but also as a litigator and attorney with Christian commitments.”

Adrienne Mahsa Varkiani writes in the New Republic, “Johnson is also an evangelical Christian who has said, ‘My faith informs everything I do.’” And that sets off alarm bells on the left. That alone is enough to make conservative Christians love him even more.

He stood up for Donald Trump when Democrats impeached him.

Both Johnson and Trump came into office in 2017, and their relationship got off to a rocky start. Johnson found himself unable to support the GOP’s Trump-backed legislative efforts to repeal Obamacare because he thought it was “haphazardly drawn,” but he and Trump became staunch allies when Johnson helped file an amicus brief supporting the president during the 2020 impeachment proceedings.

This led the Shreveport Times to refer to Johnson as “a trusted member of Donald Trump’s inner circle.” Why is this important? The way things stand right now, Trump looks to be the most likely Republican nominee for 2024. Having the support of key congressional leaders like Johnson could help sway some reluctant voters to the former president’s side.

He supports Israel and questions the blank-check approach to Ukraine.

One of Johnson’s first acts as House Speaker was to pass House Resolution 771, “Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists.” An overwhelming 410 members of Congress voted in favor of it.

Johnson also has expressed his concerns about the fact that the U.S. is passing money to Ukraine hand over fist with little accountability. “Like other conservatives, he has voiced concerns over freely handing out money like party favors to Ukraine and wants to see more accountability for where that money is and who it is going to,” notes Joe Cunningham at RedState.

“Republicans for Ukraine” gave Johnson a grade of F.

I’m sure the new House Speaker is losing sleep over that.

He has the support of conservatives in Congress.

During Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) brief tenure as House Speaker, everyone cast a suspicious eye on him. Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Tom Emmer (R-Minn.), and Steve Scalise (R-La.) couldn’t gin up enough support to get over the line. But Johnson has the support of many conservatives in the House.

“I am proud to congratulate my friend, Mike Johnson, on becoming the 56th Speaker of the House of Representatives. A fellow conservative and a man of deep Christian faith, Mike believes in this country, our Constitution, American values, and the American way of life — and he isn’t afraid to fight for them,” said Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) in a statement.

Roy added, “It is time to lead. It is time to fight. It is time for the American people to win again. We have a solemn duty upon us and a great task ahead of us; I look forward to continuing that work with Speaker Johnson and the rest of my colleagues. Onward.”

My congressman, Rep. Mike Collins (R-Ga.), said, “Today, I proudly voted for now-Speaker Mike Johnson on the House floor. After ten months of infighting over personalities and politics, I am grateful that our majority has rallied behind a strong conservative, an effective legislator, and a trusted, well-liked man to lead our conference. Mike Johnson is simply the right man for this moment, and I look forward to working with him to put America First and get our country back on a path to fiscal and economic prosperity. Let’s get to work!”

My colleague Spencer Brown at Townhall detailed some more of the reactions:

“Mr. Johnson is a proven conservative,” said Rep. Michelle Fischbach (R-MN). “I was honored to work with him on the Judiciary Committee, and I am confident that, as a speaker, he will move forward with an agenda that reflects the values and priorities of the American people.”

Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO) said Johnson “is honorable, smart,” and has “done a good job of bringing together members of different viewpoints to deliver conservative victories for the American people.”

“Throughout his time in Congress, Speaker Johnson has been a consistent and passionate champion of conservative principles, and I look forward to working alongside him and all House Republicans to deliver on the promises we made to the American people,” stated Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO).

These sorts of encomia are hard to ignore. Conservatives have a lot of confidence in Johnson, and so should we.

He’s nice.

Wait, wut? Isn’t a Speaker of the House supposed to be a bulldog and an aggressive go-getter? That might be the case most of the time, but Johnson’s demeanor, which is part of his Christian lifestyle, can help him tremendously.

For starters, Johnson’s niceness makes it easier for people to get along with him, even when they don’t agree with him. An easygoing personality can defuse a lot of difficult circumstances.

Mohler explained the other aspect of Johnson’s nice disposition: he hasn’t made enemies so far in his time in Congress. He also pointed out that Johnson reflects his Christian faith in the way he comports himself.

“Now you say, it might not be the most important thing that the Republicans would elect a speaker who is nice,” Mohler stated. “On the other hand, that is also a biblical issue. The biblical issue simply tells us that we are to treat people with respect. We are to seek to get along with people in goodwill. That is a matter of Christian testimony.”

I believe that Mike Johnson is the man that we need holding the gavel at this time. In the Old Testament book of Esther, Queen Esther’s uncle told his niece, “And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” This is Mike Johnson’s time. Pray for God to give him the strength to succeed.

Here Are Just a Few of Hamas’s Atrocities Against Israel the Left Is Cheering

Here Are Just a Few of Hamas's Atrocities Against Israel the Left Is Cheering

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the savage butchery visited upon innocent Israelis on October 7 was the worst since the atrocities of the Holocaust. No one paying attention has a problem believing that.  You won’t either after reading this.

On the morning of October 7, Hamas genocidal terrorists — yes, CBC, New York Times, BBC, they were terrorists — paraglided from the sky to attack people at a music festival while others, who had apparently been pre-positioned, began attacking families, children, and mothers and fathers in the southern part of Israel with such depraved savagery I had to take a break from this story and pray.

Hamas is a declared terrorist entity by the U.S. government. Hamas was elected to office in 2006 and, predictably, called off elections thereafter. It has used billions of dollars to build its hundreds of miles of air-conditioned tunnels under the city. The “Palestinians” (Gazans) are left in squalor. Some work in Israel.

The unspeakable crimes against humanity were photographed by the very men and women who committed them. They wore GoPro cameras or recorded their sickening deeds with their victims’ phones. These feral packs of hyenas, hyped up on a drug to intensify their lethality, brayed and bragged about their bloodletting on video.

We’ve written multiple stories here at PJ Media about how university students who ballyhoo about “equity” and “inclusion” now chant  that Jews should be exterminated “from the river to the sea.” More than half of Americans aged 18-24 believe that Jews had these atrocities coming to them. They’ll come for the rest of us later.


The “Palestinians” have their crisis actors playing roles for Pallywood productions. Bad information at a time of war is the rule, not the exception — especially if you get it from social media. The New York Times willingly went along with the Pallywood tale that Israel bombed a hospital. I waited on the “decapitated babies” story because there was only one source — one reporter who talked to one IDF soldier. Whether they beheaded a baby, burned it alive, or stabbed it in the womb, the innocent baby is still dead. It turns out, however,  that all of those things were done to babies by these terrorists.

First reports are almost always wrong, and this part of the world is known for making up the news. An Israeli tech “threat intelligence” company called Cyabra says that 25% of the social media posts are bots “attempting to proliferate misinformation.” We can’t tell you if these folks touted by the Jerusalem Post are similar to America’s “fact checkers,” but it’s worth mentioning in this context.

So, let’s take a look at what the only reputable and available source in the region says happened to the 1,400 people, including 33 Americans that we’re aware of, and possibly more who died at the hands of these genocidal killers.


We turn to Israeli pathologists who had to piece together bodies, identify remains, and determine the causes of death. When Gaza pathologists come forward with forensic information on the deaths of Israelis in this attack, we’ll include their findings.

The pathologists at the National Center of Forensic Medicine (Abu Kabir) in Tel Aviv have been able to discern roughly 200 humans from the rubble. We’ve checked them against the Stand 4 Israel platform of tech volunteers, which has just been stood up to verify deaths and knock down fake news.

A boy in the arms of his father burned alive.

A man taking video of the music festival of the round-up of concertgoers. One can hear the round hit him as he takes his last breath.

The charred remains of babies — yes, plural — burned alive.

A baby was murdered. Joe Biden confirmed that babies had been beheaded because he’d seen the images.

Another photo of babies burned alive. One can tell if a human is burned alive because of what’s in the trachea and lungs.

Twelve bodies of concertgoers put into a temporary morgue.

Twenty-one bodies lined up in body bags from the kibbutz Be’eri near the border with Gaza.

More than 200 hostages of all ages are still being held. An 85-year-old peace activist who spent her dotage helping Palestinians get medical care was beaten with a stick, thrown on the back of a motorcycle, and then taken to Hamas’s underground tunnels, where the hostages were separated depending on which kibbutz they lived in.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry has made videos of the carnage. Other photos were shown in person to media members and Secretary of State Tony Blinken, whose reckless Iran payoffs and disastrous Afghanistan pull-out paved the way to this carnage. Blinken said, “A baby — an infant — riddled with bullets. Soldiers beheaded, young people burnt alive in their cars,” he said. “Images are worth a thousand words. These images, they may be worth a million.”
