Editor’s note: Below are the video and transcript of remarks from a powerhouse panel at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2023 Restoration Weekend. The event was held Oct. 26-29 at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans..

Transcript:

Kenneth Timmerman:

Thank you. Well, thank you very much for having me. I want to thank David Horowitz also for this for hosting these events. Christina, my wife, and I have been here a number of times over the years, and it’s always a wonderful get-together– a pleasure to see old faces, and old friends and meet new people. I want to run through just a couple of things for you in the beginning before we open up for questions. Remember the day that Donald Trump left office? Russia, China, North Korea were all in the box. ISIS had been defeated. Iran was not killing Americans. They had been deterred through maximum sanctions and the justified assassination of top terrorist Qassem Soleimani. And by the way, many Trump advisers were telling him not to do that. They were terrified that the Iranians were going to retaliate in some horrible World war horrible way. We would be at a world war with Iran, the Islamic regime and a number of us said, no, no, no. If you hit the Iranians hard, very hard, they will not respond. Remember what Ronald Reagan did in April of 1988, Operation Praying Mantis. Now, the Iranians had been harassing oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, and in one day, one 24-hour period, the U.S. Navy sank one third of the Iranian navy.

And we didn’t hear from them again for quite some time. Also, when Trump left office, the Europeans had stepped up to the plate and began to increase their contributions to NATO. Remember that was a big deal and the left-wing media was accusing Trump of being an isolationist, anti-NATO, anti-European, when in fact what he did was he got the Germans in particular, but the French as well and others to increase their contributions to NATO as part of the collective defense. Israel, when Trump left office had signed peace agreements with four Arab and Muslim countries. The US Embassy had been moved. Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Also, gasoline was at 1.87 a gallon. That was the day Trump left office. The next day, the very first day of the Biden administration, Joe Biden signed a series of executive orders. He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline. He shut down drilling in Alaska. He shut down drilling on federal lands, and new permits. He backed away from the Abraham Accords, those peace agreements between Israel and its neighbors. He alienated Mohammed bin Salman, who was eager to get closer to Israel and perhaps become the fifth country to join the Abraham Accords. Biden alienated him. And ultimately, when gasoline went up, when oil prices went up, he had to go there banging his tin, his tin cup to Riyadh. Biden also right at the beginning, stopped enforcing those sanctions on Iran and allowed the Iranians to escape this noose that had been around their neck under Trump, where we had reduced their oil exports to 400,000 barrels a day. Within a year, they were up over a million. This past year, they have exported 1.6 million barrels a day to China alone. So Iran was in the box as well. I used to say that under Obama it was better to be a Mullah in Tehran than a Jew in his capital, Jerusalem. But now, I think under Biden, I’ve got to change that a little bit: it’s better to be a mullah in Tehran, a communist in China or Venezuela than an American. Joe Biden has put into practice un-American policies. He is an un-American president. I listened to Jack Keane the other night, and it seemed to me the one big thing that he missed. He gave a brilliant overview of the threats that we’re facing and the weaknesses we have now in our military and elsewhere. But he forgot one thing.

We have had two un-American presidents in recent history. Barack Obama promised that he would transform America, fundamentally transform America. He did. He started that process and Biden realized that he’s not going to have that many years and he has accelerated it on steroids. Remember when Obama came in, that apology tour that he went on around the world? That’s how it began, apologizing for America around the world. He gave a speech which really everybody should recall here in April of 2009 in Cairo, and sitting behind him were the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. Right behind him, you could see every camera caught the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood sitting right behind them. They were outlaws at that time in Egypt. At the University of Cairo, Obama invited the heads of the outlawed heads of the Muslim Brotherhood and did not invite President Mubarak, who was not there. And within a year and a half, Mubarak was out, the Arab Spring had begun, our security arrangements in the Middle East went to hell in a handbasket. And by September of 2012, you had the attack on our consular facility in Benghazi and the U.S. did nothing.

So this has been going on. You had two terms of Obama and now the first term of Biden. And they have been deconstructing American security hand over fist. Now, we’ve all been following, obviously, what’s happened in Gaza. And you know, I can recall– I’ve been in those tunnels, not that not in Gaza, but I was actually first in the tunnels in Beirut after the 1982 war. I told that story and in my book, which is kind of how I became a hostage, an arms dealer and an Israeli spy. True story, all of them true stories. I think some people have commented on my fictions that they read like newspaper stories and my nonfiction books read like novels. So you can make up your mind. But I’ve seen those tunnels. And in Beirut, this was the PLO before Hamas. In Beirut, they were big enough that they could drive Katyusha rocket launchers into the tunnels after they had fired. So they fired Israel back up the rocket launchers into the tunnels so the Israelis couldn’t find them. So you wonder why Hamas still has that capability of firing rockets at Israel. That’s why it has tunnels that are big enough for to put all those rocket launchers in. Add to all of these structural problems, of these policy problems that you have with President Biden. You have the corruption problem. You have the corruption problem. Biden has been visibly bribed by our adversaries, starting with communist China. He’s taken money from the Ukrainians. He’s taken money from Russian oligarchs. We don’t know what they have, what promises they got from him in exchange, but clearly he is compromised. People have asked me, are we getting towards World War III? And if you look now, war in Ukraine, war in Gaza. Soon we could have war in the Far East with China. I would say we are very, very close to that point. We are at a very dangerous moment in our history and we have an extremely weak president who hates America. Thank you.

Frank Gaffney:

Well, I do this with some trepidation, but I’d like to correct my friend Ken Timmerman. We’re IN World War III, folks. It has begun. I think the opening salvo was Ukraine. I think the next is the Middle East, of course, how broadly we’ll see. But as I said yesterday, the engine behind it is the Chinese Communist Party. And this is the subject of the book that I mentioned. We’ll be signing it outside afterwards. But what we tried to do with this book is to synthesize the most important insights that we’ve received for some   time– 75 different webinars that we’ve conducted under the banner of our Committee on the Present Danger of China, aimed at laying out the fact that the Chinese Communist Party has been at war with this country for decades, specifically, as they have called it. It is an unrestrained open warfare that they’ve waged. But the purpose of it, like everything else in the war business, is destruction, specifically the destruction of the United States, because we are, after all, the only real impediment to the realization of the Chinese Communist Party’s long-standing ambition, which is to be the world’s hegemonic. And they pursued that relentlessly through all manner of means. And so what we call the indictment, which starts actually with their crimes against their own people, crimes against humanity on an epic scale, by some estimates, they’ve killed 100 million of predominantly their own people, some Uighurs, some Tibetans, some Southern Mongolians. Yes, but it’s mostly Han Chinese; and that does not count the 400 million they boast of killing–as our previous guest from North Korea mentioned–in the womb.

And I want you just to take this thought aboard any country that treats its own people that badly will not treat ours better. In fact, what they have been doing in these unrestricted warfare techniques is what one might expect, what is not so much a political party as it is a transnational criminal organization, and that is war crimes, war crimes that include things like the economic takedown of America’s industrial base, things like turning us against one another through the kinds of Marxist techniques that we’ve been talking about throughout the past two days, whether it’s in our universities, whether it’s in our businesses, ESG, whether it’s in our government now. Now, again, our friend from North Korea mentioned the diversity officer that she heard from. They’re throughout the government, what amounts to political commissars enforcing the critical race theory—DEI agenda. Not least, there was that recent unpleasantness, as Simone talked about last night, of a biological warfare attack against our country with all the damage that that did. Yes, to people, to lives, to businesses to our society, to our freedoms. And that, of course, is just a precursor for what is probably yet to come. Having done a proof of concept as to how deadly that could be, even if it wasn’t that deadly, a disease, I mentioned yesterday on our panel that one of the most effective of the techniques has been the capture of our elites, not just the political elites like Joe Biden. And by the way, for the purposes of calibration, I don’t think I mentioned this yesterday, but one of our colleagues of the Committee on the Present Danger– China is a fabulous guy. You’ve seen him probably on a forum and perhaps elsewhere. Sam Faddis, spent 20 years of his life recruiting and running assets for the Central Intelligence Agency and some of the real garden spots of the world. He knows a thing or two about the business, and he says that in the lexicon of the trade, the President of the United States is a, quote, controlled asset of the Chinese Communist Party, unquote. So elite capture is a big problem. I mentioned yesterday, I think it’s not just in the political elite, it is in the business elite as media. Joe was talking about that. It is in Hollywood. David Horowitz cut his teeth on that problem–Academia. And yes, not least it’s in the United States military. In fact, one of the crimes we charge the CCP with is taking down our military. And you heard Heather talking about this a moment ago. Critical race theory is devastating to any organization, but particularly one that has to be based on merit. You start promoting people on the basis of the color of their skin or some other diversity condition, you destroy the organization. There’s no unit cohesion, there’s no confidence in leadership. There’s no willingness to sacrifice for the guy next to you because he may be an oppressor or a victim who hates you. This is Marxism, folks. This is cultural Marxism.

It has marched through all of our institutions. It is about advancing the cause of the Chinese Communist Party to destroy this country. And our president and many of his subordinates have, as I said to you yesterday, promulgated and implemented policies that have two things in common. One, they are all bad for us. And two, they are all good for these guys.

I think it’s without exception, as Ken said, starting on day one. So I want to leave you with this thought: we have 20 specific steps that we think can make a difference in the trajectory of what this collective– Robert Spencer was talking about–the collective this some of my friends who are more familiar with Star Trek history than I say; This is the Borg, right? You remember the line about the Borg Resistance is futile. That’s what they would like us to believe. Well, we have no choice but to engage in resistance of every kind. We’ve got. Again, 20 different suggestions, starting with getting people who are captured elites out of positions to govern this country or otherwise exercise power over us. I commend it to you, if only because–well you were obviously high up the learning curve on all of these issues–people you love aren’t, people you work with aren’t, people who will be voting hopefully usefully next year aren’t. And we must get them equipped to help do a course correction for this country or it is certainly lost. And I’ll leave you just one last thought. The single most important thing we know we must do is to is invoke God’s grace, because with his help, we’ll get through it. And without it, we’re toast.

Scott Powell:

It’s hard to follow that one, but I’m a great admirer of Frank’s work. My topic is going to be a little different tonight, and there’s some bad news to cover and probably some new information. But then there’s really good optimistic news at the end. Now that we all know that: the COVID 19 pandemic was not actually a pandemic of the unvaccinated, we know that the southern border is anything but secure, we know that the Inflation Reduction Act has been anything other than a program that’s raised prices and caused inflation; and we know that January 6th was hardly an insurrection. In fact, November 3rd was–I’ll call it a coup. Insurrection usually involves arms and that wasn’t present. But it’s really troubling that our federal government is operating almost entirely on false narratives. You know, you can’t get successful policies if the input at the base of all the discussion and all the policymaking is based on false narratives. And it’s not just the Democrats. Republicans are also giving credence to some of these false narratives. What I want to talk about today is energy security. And when it comes to energy security, we cannot afford to base policies on false narratives. The current energy policy that we have is all about the Green New Deal, and that is the Green New Deal is to replace fossil fuels and I don’t like to use that term fossil fuels because science is discovering that these are probably not oil. Gas probably did not come from the decomposition of organic matter, but has actually come from the earth, the creation itself. So we’re going to call it hydrocarbons. And the idea is to replace all the hydrocarbons with wind and solar. And they call this the goal by 2050, net zero CO2—the end of reducing CO2. Now, this is not just unrealistic and foolish, but it is it’s disruptive and harmful to the environment. We probably don’t have time to talk about what it does to the environment, but it’s economically unachievable. In fact, it will lead to our economic ruin. And it will lead to mass death, and it certainly would cripple our military. So let’s do a little primer on energy. Okay. There are many sources of energy, but there’s two basic types. There is energy on demand, and there’s something called stored energy. Energy on demand is what we’re all pretty familiar with. It’s gas in the tank diesel. It’s natural gas in electric power generation, it’s uranium. In other words, the fuel can you can turn it on and go. Stored energy is what the Green New Deal is all about. It is energy that is stored because the wind doesn’t always blow, the sun doesn’t always shine. And so in order to build out the system to power the country, you have to have stored energy.

So let me let me ask you a question. Just because the issue is all back to CO2, is that net zero CO2. Can anyone tell me that among the three main elements of the atmosphere–and that would be oxygen, CO2 and nitrogen– what are the percentages of our atmospheres? Does anybody know? It’s actually a 4/100 of 1% is CO2. Now the other part of CO2 is understanding what’s the mixture, how much comes from nature and how much does man. Because the argument is that if we reduce what we contribute to CO2, that we can somehow stabilize the climate. You know, they used to talk about global warming, but the temperature was not actually getting warmer. And so they decided to change tax. So let’s talk a little bit about the history. Prior to 1850, Niger produced about 98% of all CO2 and man’s contribution was about 2%. That’s somewhat pre-industrial revolution. But since 1850, what’s happened? We have a seven-fold increase in global population. Seven times more people live on the earth today than in 1850. And we’ve been through an industrial revolution. How has that changed the contribution of what man does to build up CO2? Well, the numbers changed a little bit. We have probably 3 to 4% contribution by man to the CO2 in the atmosphere and the other 96, 97% comes from natural sources, the biggest one being the ocean itself. Now, in terms of parts per million, total CO2 makes up about 417 parts per million. And that’s that, you know, one for hundreds of 1%. So if you if you think that man and what man contributes is about 17 or 18 parts per million, if you think we could just reduce our 17 or 18 parts to zero, then the atmosphere would have about 400 parts per million CO2. Now, if you think that small change from 417 to 400 is going to change climate change, I think I think it’s fair to say you’d be a certifiable lunatic or a liar. It’s just not going to make the difference. Now, the history of temperature of CO2, today’s levels of CO2 are now close to the lowest that they’ve been in the history of the Earth.

Did you hear that CO2 is at closer to the lowest levels in history. Increasing CO2 levels does result in higher temperatures, that’s true, but the correlation is not absolute. For instance, as we pointed out, there’s more CO2 now in the last 75 years, post-World War II, but temperature has not gone up. So this correlation is not absolute. Now, the economics of achieving this net zero CO2, this is kind of a key area, because solar and wind are intermittent power. The sun doesn’t always shine. The wind doesn’t always blow. You really need to scale up the infrastructure and the storage of energy, and you really need a 30 day storage. That’s what the experts say. You’ve got to have about 30 days of stored energy that you would build up during the times when the sun’s out and the wind’s blowing. So what does it cost to get there? This is a number of very few economists look, but those that have put the numbers at an astronomical level. I think the work of Ken Gregory, who is a climate/energy engineer in Canada, he’s calculated in his early days that it was about $300 Trillion dollars. Now, he estimates that to get a system that would really sustain energy based on wind and solar, we would have to spend $433 trillion in one year. 433 trillion! So that’s just unrealistic. And even if you were to go half and half, it’s still a price we could literally never afford. So I’ve saved the best news for last. And in terms of hydrocarbons, not the fossil fuel, the hydrocarbons, the United States has the largest proven and presently accessible oil reserves and natural gas reserves by far of any country in the world.  In oil, it’s estimated at about 300 billion barrels more than Saudi Arabia and more than Russia. But perhaps more importantly because the future will be able to break through in other areas and be able to draw more out through technology.

The US has the largest known deposits of oil shale in the world, and according to the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. has at least 2.175 trillion barrels of potentially recoverable oil. This is all in the United States under our territory. And so who benefits if we don’t benefit from the Green New Deal?

Well, it it turns out that the Chinese are the chief beneficiaries of the Green New Deal because they supply 75% of all the in the parts, the production, the manufacturing of solar panels. And the Chinese controls 77% of the lithium battery market. They literally control the supply of cobalt, which is a necessity. And they control about 75% of the lithium. So no one has really said, well, we’re being led down this path because the Chinese know that if they can get us far enough down this path, then, we’ll ruin our energy economy and they won’t even need to fire a shot and they can just take us over. So I think I’m out of time and I’ll leave it there.

Tommy Waller

So just before I start, a little bit more good news to add to Scott’s. We also have 93,000 metric tonnes of slightly used nuclear fuel, which if recycled in fast reactors, would provide electricity, clean and carbon-free for the country for 150 to 250 years. This is something I’ve already briefed the Secretary of Energy twice about and she refuses to act on it. But we’re working it at the state level. That’s another subject. What I was asked to talk about was the military and the credit to Congressman Louie Gohmert.

When I walked in the back and we started to talk and I showed him the picture of my family the last day I was in uniform, he asked: What was your pronoun? I said, Killer, right? Killer. And what I mean, in all seriousness, don’t we want Marines to be killers? And so how did we go from killers to what Scott just said, which is liars and lunatics? Well, I’ll just tell you that, as Scott mentioned about, you know, the military’s worried about CO2 right now. The only people the military should be worried about are submariners and combat divers. And that’s it. Nobody else. And what Ken Timmerman talked about, thank you again for talking about what Obama said in the 2008-2009 time frame. I remember watching his speech having just returned from my third combat deployment where he said there was no such thing as al Qaeda in Iraq, and yet I lost a third of my platoon killed in action, and a half were wounded. One of which, his parents–he was the only child–gave me a copy of this US Constitution and said, never forget what he died for and I never will. But what I watched was a U.S. senator lying to the American people and apologizing for our behavior in those countries where I remember raiding a Taliban stronghold. After we took him prisoner, I gave him the blankets that we had so they wouldn’t freeze while I was wrapped up in a VS17 air panel, not the pink side out, but the orange side out with another Marine to stay warm. Right. And here he is apologizing for us.

So you fast forward the clock to September 11th, 2012, where I was south of Libya. And remember what happened there right. And as we mobilize to get ready to go help and we were told to stand down, what I remember is being lied to again when I flew back to Sigonella, Sicily, and I was given a classified briefing saying that it was a video. So the result of a video, if you remember the false narrative spun about the well-planned assault in Benghazi. So these were lies that I began to witness in uniform in my service. But let me just talk about my time as a commander briefly. Fast forward from September 11, 2012, to September 11, 2020. I’m at a senior leader legal course. It’s virtual, of course, because we’re so scared of COVID that at the time these lawyers are trying to help commanders figure out how to allow their service members to participate in the protests happening around the country. If you remember the Summer of Love 2020, and I asked a couple of questions, one of which was: should there be some level of professional competence by which military officers ought to be judged? And if they can’t meet that level of competence, could they be removed from the service? Right. If you’re a doctor and you hurt somebody through malpractice, you can you can lose your license. If you’re a lawyer, you can be disbarred. What is there for the U.S. military to ask that question? Because they said, it’s 19 years ago today that we were struck by airplanes on September 11th, and yet we have willfully refused to study the doctrine of Sharia. That’s right. So where is our professional competence? And by the way, these protests that you’re talking about, allowing our service members to participate in, let me just send you some links real quick. Here’s a link to the Constitution for the new Socialist Republic of North America, authored by a gentleman named–he’s not a gentleman–authored by a communist. He name is Bob Avakian of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. 11 years ago, a constitution meant to supplant ours. And here’s a link to Bob Avakian participating in supporting all of these protests of our current president. So how is it that you have any professional competence to be suggesting that our service members participate in this? Of course I have no answer. Fast forward the clock, I’m in command. We know what happened on January 6 of 2021. In the spring of 2021, we were given a mandate for extremism in the ranks stand down. You may remember that right? Hundreds of man hours were spent. This was the top priority of the US military. And what I noticed is that the training material was void of six examples where members of the US Army either murdered their fellow service members. We remember Fort Hood, a major Nidal Hasan, or they planned to do so, and thankfully were caught ahead of time. Not a single mention of a jihadi in uniform for the extremism in the ranks stand down. We go back to professional competence. You fast forward to the summer of 2021, the weekend of July 4th. I asked my employer–thank God that I work for the Center for Security Policy– for my civilian job and was serving in the reserves.

I was in command of the Marine Corps’ only independent force recon company in the Reserves. And so I’ve got a lot of stud killers, as we might call them, if that’s their pronoun, who we’re very concerned about this vaccine. And I asked Frank and the rest of the team: Hey, can you guys cover for me this week before July 4th? I need to take some time and I need to study this thing. And I did with the type of unconstrained analysis that I’ve been blessed to be told to do by Frank for so many years. And I discovered some really worrisome things, both medically and legally. And I did everything I could to bring that up to the chain of command. And I was warned. I was warned by the one colonel above me who cared about me. He said, Tommy, this is political and you better tread careful because you’re going to be crushed like an ant. And so we fast forward the clock into late August. Afghanistan is collapsing. I’m supposed to be going to the range with my Marines, and we were going to shoot and we were also going to do a bit of a spiritual restoration time and in the field. And I had a guy, an American hero who you may know. You may have heard him, Chad Robichaux, Mighty Oaks Foundation. He is a buddy of mine who served in the same unit a few years ahead. I was going to have Chad come out and after we got off the range, have a good heart to heart; to talk with the Marines about spiritual warfare. We’re on a conference call with all the generals, and all they’re talking about is the vaccine numbers. Nothing about Afghanistan. I’m like, I got to just say Afghanistan in this conference call at one point.  So, I just bring up the point: hey, generals, we’re not going to be able to do our spiritual restoration training this drill, because the guy that was going to give it to us is in Afghanistan. I get a phone call right after : “you’ve got a guy in Afghanistan?” No , it’s Chad Robichaud, he used to be a guy in our unit. He’s in Afghanistan. “Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.” Okay. Well, then Chad calls and he needs one of our guys, one of my top snipers and recon men.

I didn’t even ask permission. I said go and the mission they did brought back 17,000 vetted allies, widows and orphans. And the single biggest obstacle they had was the U.S. government. And when the general found out that I had a marine in Afghanistan, I got a phone call. Nobody was worried about if he got snatched up, which he almost did. And his parents are on Tucker Carlson, they’re going to ask why was he there? That’s what the general cared about. That’s what he cared about. Fast forward, October 23rd, just a couple of days ago. 2021 was my change of command. I was very fortunate because I took a stand on the vaccine mandate and I made it very clear to those above me that what they were asking me to do was to violate the law. We’ve got to think about this. This was a well-planned operation. First it was data harvesting, right? Think about it. Governments and corporations around the country said there will be a process. Tell us your strongly held religious beliefs. And we did. Right. And once they got that data, then the purge began. And it was a very well-orchestrated purge in the military. What they did was they created the conditions by which I would have had to violate U.S. law to compel my service members to take it. So regardless of how you feel about the vaccine itself, it would be to violate law for me to force them to do it. And I tried to bring that up and I was ignored. I was warned. I was also blessed because I wasn’t court martialed. I wasn’t disciplined. They just waited until I got out the way. And so I changed command. I was already scheduled to change command. I passed that, got on to the next commander, and that was a picture I showed the congressman earlier of my family the last time I wore the uniform; and three hours later the Marine Corps passed the guidance that any unvaccinated commander would be immediately relieved for cause because I was out of the way. And so for a year, I tried to continue to serve. I tried to join units I wouldn’t.  I had to drop to the individual ready reserve. We lost our health benefits. When it was time to get a new ID card, I tried to go right here to this city, the reserve headquarters of the United States Marine Corps, to get a new ID.

I brought my whole family in their Sunday’s best. I had intended to bring them to see the memorial for our fallen Marines, and we were barred access to the facility. I was told it was COVID protocol. I looked at my wife with tears in her eyes. A woman who’s got the toughest job in the Corps not allowed on base. So they’re serious about purging the force from the very top. Now, that doesn’t mean that all the generals are terrible. Most of them are right now, and all the service members are terrible. They’re still good patriots that need our support. And that’s exactly what we’re doing right now. The good news is this. Just this past week, I met with an attorney who’s agreed to take on the cases of wrongful separation over the mandate. And she is a powerhouse. So this is an attorney that literally changed–you can’t sue the government right, until until she came along where a service member had been maltreated, medically maltreated. And she won a case that now has set a precedent. So service members that have been maltreated by the government can sue the government. And so she’s about to take this one on.

And then the other thing is I’ll just mention that we’re also taking on threats locally. I went to Tulane University right down the road. Do we know what happened there on Thursday?  If you don’t, there was a riot, essentially pro-Palestinian Hamas, organized by the Muslim Student Association. Anybody who knows about the Muslim Brotherhood knows was the very first in 1963, a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. That was Thursday, yesterday morning, about 6 a.m.. I get a call from my sister in law in tears. She lives about 15 minutes from here. I’m in Washington. Why did she called me this early? She’s in tears because the SWAT team just left her house because she was swatted because her two sons are Jewish. She’s a Tulane alma mater. Whatever they posted online must have caused them to get SWAT. We don’t know. It’s still being investigated. Here’s the good news. Over the last few years, legislation that we helped write in the state of Louisiana made it a predicate crime for RICO to have any sort of material support for terrorism. What does that mean? That means it allows lawyers to get both attorney’s fees and treble damages if they can find that somebody materially supported terrorism. What’s the Muslim Student Association doing at Tulane? Starting riots. Right. Okay. And what we’re going to do next, and this is the last thing I’ll say is we’re going to get the Louisiana legislature, God willing, is to amend that law that we’ve already passed to add as another predicate commission of assault and battery during riots organized by such organizations. So that the things we saw on Thursday can become something that we can actually pursue directly right here in this state.

Thank you.

Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter Caught on Hidden Camera Admitting January 6 Was a Hoax

Janet Van Ham

Nancy Pelosi’s nepo-baby, Alexandra, was caught on camera admitting essentially that January 6 and the ensuing prosecutions were a marketing gimmick to propagandize the public for the benefit of the Democrat Party.

The video, apparently filmed surreptitiously in the style of Project Veritas and released by CitizenLens, reportedly between Pelosi and a January 6 defendant she was courting so as to appear in her documentary of the event, featured Pelosi discussing the political implications of the Jan 6 show trials and their effects on the upcoming 2022 mid-term elections.

After the Democrats lose the House and then they get rid of the committee, people may lose interest. The first trials are gonna get a lot of attention. It’s like [an] anniversary; the first one is a big deal… No one’s gonna care after the Democrats are out of power. And then take Biden out of office, then who cares?...

I know you’re not the bad guys [to the Jan 6 defendant]…

If it was an insurrection… you were supposed to have a plan…. You’re going to be able to laugh about this one day.

She then goes on to explain how she knows Gavin McInnes (the purported former leader of the Proud Boys) and used, in fact, to party with him. She knows that he’s a provocateur and doesn’t actually mean what he says.

It’s all bread and circuses, people.

Notice the dispassionate tone of the clip above in which Pelosi is soberly analyzing the political strategy behind the Jan 6 propaganda and the acknowledgment that what happened was not an insurrection compared to the unhinged public utterances of Democrat partisans about how THE LITERAL FOUNDATIONS OF DEMOCRACY™ ARE CRUMBLING IN REAL TIME AND HITLER IS ON THE MARCH.

… And it becomes very clear that the pearl-clutching and the Capitol police officer crying on the stand and Liz Cheney posturing as if she has any principles whatsoever was all a cynical weaponization of a one-off riot — not an insurrection by any means (the rioters didn’t even bring guns to the “insurrection” for God’s sake; who believes they were really trying to “take the Capitol”?) — for political gain.

It was a cheap trick. Alas, the MSNBC viewers of the world on their 12th boosters love cheap tricks.

Meanwhile, Alexandra Pelosi made out like a bandit, on top of all the political capital they squeezed out of Jan 6, with her stupid documentary and the fawning media coverage she got for it.  

Major Democratic donor and Hunter Biden art buyer’s 3-year-old great-niece orphaned and kidnapped by Hamas

Will she now reconsider her support of Old Joe Biden and abetting of his corruption, in light of the fact that it was the Biden regime’s treason and fecklessness that enabled the Oct. 7 jihad massacre to happen? Don’t hold your breath.

“Major Democratic donor, Hunter Biden art buyer’s 3-year-old American relative kidnapped by Hamas,” by Madeleine Hubbard, Just The News, November 24, 2023:

Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, a major Democratic donor well connected to the Biden administration, has been bringing attention to the hostages after her 3-year-old great-niece, a U.S. citizen, was orphaned and taken captive by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.

Hirsh Naftali is known for buying Hunter Biden’s artwork, visiting the White House more than a dozen times, and being appointed by President Joe Biden to a historical preservation commission.

Since her great-niece, Abigail Mor Idan was kidnapped from the kibbutz of Kfar Aza, Hirsch Nafti has become a vocal advocate for the hostages. Abigail is reportedly one of the approximately 50 hostages slated to be released starting Friday, according to The Times of Israel.

Hirsh Naftali expressed cautious optimism during a CNN interview Tuesday before the hostage deal solidified.

“I’m not a politician, I’m not a diplomat. I will believe it when I see them walk out,” she said. “Until then we just have to keep everything in check because it’s just too much of an emotional rollercoaster.”…

Turkey: 1,000 boats filled with Leftists head to Gaza to try to disrupt maritime trade coming into Israel

“Among the 1,000 vessels would be 313 boats filled with Russian activists, and 104 filled with Spanish activists…”

Once again, these self-righteous useful idiots have no idea what they’re enabling. Or if they do, it would be even worse.

“1,000 boats said set to leave Turkey for Gaza waters in new ‘Freedom Flotilla,’” by Gianluca Pacchiani, Times of Israel, November 21, 2023:

Approximately 1,000 boats will gather in Turkey on Wednesday before heading toward Gaza in an attempt to break the Israeli blockade and disrupt maritime trade coming into Israel during the war with Hamas, in an apparent repeat of similar attempts from over a decade ago.

In an interview with Turkish news website Haber7, Volkan Okçu, one of the organizers of the protest, indicated the boats will carry 4,500 people from 40 countries, “including anti-Zionist Jews.”

Among the 1,000 vessels would be 313 boats filled with Russian activists, and 104 filled with Spanish activists, he said. Only 12 Turkish vessels will join the flotilla, he told Haber7.

However, Okçu said in a later tweet that he expected the number of Turkish vessels to be much higher, at least 1,000, and insisted that the initiative is not associated with the Turkish government. He did not explain the discrepancy in numbers.

The activist indicated to Haber7 that the flotilla is scheduled to leave Turkish coasts on Thursday. The maritime convoy is set to make a first stop in Cyprus before continuing toward the Israeli port of Ashdod. Some participants in the flotilla will also reportedly take their spouses and children on board.

Okçu said that the main objective of the operation would be to cause disruption in international waters off the Israeli coast to the maritime trade heading for the port of Ashdod, in order to interrupt the supply of goods to Israel for a week or even up to 10 days….

Biden Support Continues to Crater Among Gen Z and Millenials

Young voters are abandoning Joe Biden in worrying numbers for the Democrats, especially when it comes to supporting Israel. The most recent NBC poll found 70% of 18-24-year-old voters disapprove of Biden's handling of the war.

The Israel-Hamas war is beginning to be a drag on Biden's re-election chances. What he can do to reverse the decline is a subject of intense debate in the Biden camp.

Some "experts," according to the Washington Post, say that the younger voters are turned off to the "far-right politics" of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In fact, the explanation is far simpler; a lack of skepticism about news coming from Gaza and the inability of Gen-Zers to differentiate between news and propaganda.

“After what’s happening right now in the Middle East, it’s a very difficult decision for people from my background who we’re going to be voting for,” said Humza Irfan, who is Pakistani American and said a relative was killed last month in an apparent Israeli strike.

Gen Z and millennial voters are expected to make up nearly 40 percent of the electorate in 2024 and have already flexed their influence on elections. They helped flip the Wisconsin Supreme Court earlier this year to a liberal majority, and they boosted turnout on college campuses in Pennsylvania and Virginia in this month’s elections. Polling showed young voters were highly motivated by issues such as abortion, in which there is a clear contrast between the stances of Biden and Trump, the front-runner for the GOP nomination.

But a diminished turnout among young voters could complicate Biden’s reelection bid, especially in key battleground states such as Michigan. Biden flipped the state in 2020, and network exit polls found 61 percent of Michigan voters ages 18 to 29 supported his campaign.

“We all have TikTok, we all have Instagram. And it’s honestly like we’ve begun to form these parasocial relationships with the people in Palestine,” 19-year-old Marie Willy said, citing posts by a creator named Bisan Owda who shares videos from inside Gaza.

Taking the word of an anonymous internet poster as "news" is bat guano crazy and the fact that the girl doesn't realize that is troubling.

It should be noted that very few of the pro-Palestinian kids were ever going to vote for Trump. But not voting, or voting for a third candidate is almost as good.

Earlier in November, several leaders of national youth organizing groups wrote a letter to Biden telling him bluntly of the consequences of not changing course on the war.

“You and your Administration’s stance on Gaza risks millions of young voters staying home or voting third party next year,” the letter read, adding that it “will not be possible for those committed to turning out the youth vote this election to recruit the volunteers, organizers, staff, and donors needed to deliver the margins for Democratic victory down the ballot.”

What will all these threats to stay home or vote for someone else lead to?

Members of College Democrats at the University of Michigan, some of the president’s top defenders on campus, said they believe at the end of the day that their peers will turn out for Biden, especially when confronted with Trump as the alternative — even as some acknowledged that the president could improve his messaging around the war.

“I understand some folks’ frustration, especially of recent in light of the Israel-Palestine conflict … it’s a deeply emotional thing, deeply personal,” said Jade Gray, the co-president of the group. “And I do think that the steps that he’s taken are along the path to a cease-fire, and I know that that’s what folks are looking for next.”

Most of these college Democrats will hold their noses and vote for Biden  that is, "most" of them. In a close election, as this one is bound to be, even a 5% drop-off in support from 2020 to 2024 could cost Biden several states.

Biden will probably not call for a cease-fire. But the pressure he's under is growing and anything is possible in an election year.

Biden regime threatens Israel: may not support further defensive actions in Gaza

Notice that the Biden regime doesn’t say anything to Hamas about its use of civilians as human shields and its intentional actions to put civilians in harm’s way so that it can use civilian casualties for propaganda purposes. The criminal regime in Washington is doing all it can to keep Hamas alive.

“Biden Admin warns it might not support next phase of Israel’s war,” JNS, November 22, 2023 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Israel must have a plan to protect the civilians in southern Gaza before proceeding with the war, says U.S.National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby.

The White House says it won’t support Israel’s plan to expand its operations into the south of the Gaza Strip unless it shows it will protect the Palestinian civilians there.

In a Tuesday press call, US National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby said the United States won’t support Israel “moving forward with operations in the south absent a clearly articulated plan for how they’re going to protect the lives of the hundreds of thousands of people” there.

“There’s an obligation for them to factor that into their planning,” Kirby said.

The NSC spokesman noted that the population in the south of the terror-run enclave has swelled as Israel ordered the northern population to flee southwards. It’s “even more incumbent” on Israel to “protect those civilians who moved at their urging,” said Kirby….

Leftists and Antisemites Are Discovering That Islam Is Just the Thing for Them

AP Photo/Alexandru Dobre
Who would have guessed that the next trendy, chic thing among America’s addled and miseducated youth would be Islam?

It was perhaps inevitable that young secular Westerners, their self-centered lives achingly meaningless, would gravitate to the only force that seems to present an alternative to the culture of materialism, hedonism, and increasing madness in which they’ve been marinating since birth. But many of these people are likely to wake up in the morning with a massive buyer’s remorse headache.

First, there was the Osama bin Laden craze on TikTok. Hordes of witless millennials suddenly discovered the terror titan’s 2002 letter to America and professed to find wisdom in its whiny grievance-mongering and Jew-hatred. But that was just the beginning. Now the same disaffected, diseducated, and rationality-challenged millennials are embracing not just Osama, but the whole hog, or if you prefer, the whole halal enchilada, and converting to Islam.

High-profile “influencers” are driving much of this trend. First, there was former kickboxer and accused sex trafficker Andrew Tate, who converted to Islam precisely because it sanctifies brute force and intolerance, qualities that he confuses with strength and sees lacking in the woke, relativistic half-men and men who think they’re women of the contemporary left. Following Tate into the Religion of Peace was the “Internet personality” Sneako, who is now doing his part to bring into the fold of Muhammad the legions of antisemites who have revealed themselves since Hamas’ Oct. 7 jihad massacre in Israel.

 On Thursday, the venomously anti-Israel propagandist Jackson Hinkle, who has over two million followers on X, tweeted (X’d?) a video in which Sneako presents him with a biography of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam. Hinkle wrote: “Thanks @sneako for gifting me the biography of the Prophet Muhammad. It’s already a very eye-opening read.”

It is indeed, although Sneako is unlikely to have given Hinkle a Muhammad biography that will enlighten the anti-Israel advocate about Muhammad’s violence, cruelty, Jew-hatred, misogyny, and the like. Or maybe he did, as it could be that they both regard all those aspects of the Islamic prophet’s life (as it is depicted in early Islamic texts) as positives. 

Either way, if Hinkle decides to convert to Islam, he could meet up with some interesting people in the new converts class at his local mosque. The UK’s Daily Mail reported Sunday that hatred of Israel and support for Hamas, so prevalent among leftists since Oct. 7, is now leading many millennials to embrace Islam, which they see as the “ultimate rebellion against the West.”

Some of these people should have looked before they leaped. One is a woman named Alex, who describes herself as a “leftist queer gremlin.” This particular gremlin has been going to pro-Hamas demonstrations and recently bought a Qur’an, made a formal conversion to Islam, and started wearing a hijab. 

But has Alex noticed that the population of leftist queer gremlins in Gaza is vanishingly small? Is Alex aware of what happens to leftist queer gremlins in the Islamic land she so admires? Almost certainly not. But if she continues with her little rebellion against the West, she is liable to find out, and will likely be thinking as her tormenters close in that maybe the much-maligned West wasn’t so bad after all.

Related: Pope's New Book Settles It: Islam Is a Religion of Peace After All!

Inspiring Alex to embark upon this path was another new Muslim, Megan Rice, yet another TikTok “influencer.” Rice explained in a recent video that Palestinian defiance of Israel led her to Islam: “It just seems that Palestinians have this ironclad faith even in the face of losing quite literally everything.” 

It will become abundantly clear to the world, once the ceasefire ends, that the Palestinians have by no means lost everything and have plenty of rockets and other weapons on hand, but Rice is unlikely to look back. The Mail notes that “she founded the World Religion Book Club where she conducts live readings of the Quran. The online community now boasts 13,000 members.”

It is unlikely in the extreme that Megan Rice or any of these other new Western converts to Islam have the faintest idea of what their new religion teaches. They just like the idea of rebelling against The Man, who in their thoroughly propagandized minds is a white Christian; they haven’t noticed that the people who have the real power today are those who share their hatred of Israel and are determined to destroy and are happy to see this Islam craze spreading among young people because it furthers their larger goal of destroying the West in order to pave the way for socialist internationalism.

By the time these young dupes wake up to how they’re being manipulated, it is likely to be far too late. But others in the West should realize how dangerous this blend of hatred of Jews, hatred of America, and embrace of Islam really is, and begin to formulate ways to counter the appeal of the noxious mix.

Rep. Nadler Votes Against Ban on Funding College Antisemitism

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2023/11/rep-nadler-votes-against-ban-on-funding-college-antisemitism;

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

Rep. Nadler shows he cares more about antisemites than antisemitism.

Rep. Mike Lawler (R – NY) introduced an amendment to the 2024 Labor, HHS, and Education bill barring taxpayer funding of campus antisemitism.

The really simple amendment stated that “none of the funds made available by this Act may be made available to an institution of higher education that authorizes, facilitates, provides funding for, or otherwise supports any event promoting antisemitism (as such term is defined by the working definition of anti-semitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance on May 26, 2016, including the contemporary examples of antisemitism cited by the Alliance.) on the campus of such institution.”

The amendment passed the House 373 to 54.

Republicans voted for it 218-1 (Rep. Massie) while Democrats voted for it 155-53. That means a third of the House Democrat delegation voted against an amendment barring campus funding of antisemitism.

Who voted against it? The Squad is no surprise. There’s the usual collection of leftists and Islamist-friendly types, Rep. Barbara Lee, Rep. Jayapal, Rep. Betty McCollum, Rep. Raul Grijalva, Rep. Judy Chu, Rep. Marc Pocan, and then there’s the J Street crowd, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Rep. Sara Jacobs and Rep. Jerry Nadler.

That’s right. Jerry strikes again.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a guy who balances a district with a lot of Jews, with a lot of anti-Israel votes, put up a tendentious statement attacking the amendment.

“To be clear, I am deeply concerned about rising incidents of antisemitism in our nation’s institutions of higher education,” Rep. Nadler began. Beginning with “to be clear” rarely leads to clarity or honesty.

Rep. Nadler attacked House Republicans for banning taxpayer funding of antisemitism instead of funding the “Office of Civil Rights” which has been largely useless.

He claimed that banning taxpayer funding of campus antisemitism was a “meaningless gesture” and “wildly counterproductive”. (If something is wildly counterproductive, it’s probably not meaningless.)

“Threatening to pull federal funding from the universities and college campuses that need our help the most is, at best, wildly counterproductive. Moreover, the amendment is so broad that it threatens to defund institutions that are working in good faith to fight antisemitism on campus. Under Representative Lawler’s construction, a university might lose its funding if a single student showed up to a single event with a single antisemitic sign—even if that student had no affiliation with the school. It should also be noted that Congress doesn’t cut funding to universities when individual students on campus use vile racist or homophobic speech. The scourge of antisemitism is real, and we have real work to do. Draconian measures like the Lawler Amendment are a step in the wrong direction.”

If you break down that flailing word salad of gibberish, Rep. Nadler is arguing that pulling funding for campus antisemitism would be counterproductive because colleges that platform antisemitism need help.

He falsely contends that “a university might lose its funding if a single student showed up to a single event with a single antisemitic sign—even if that student had no affiliation with the school”. The amendment states that the event itself has to promote antisemitism.

But that’s where Rep. Nadler shows his true colors.

He worries that an event might be wrongly characterized as antisemitic. An interesting concern for a supposedly Jewish politician who claims to be concerned about antisemitism, but is actually more concerned about antisemites.

Rep. Nadler argues that it’s unfair because Congress doesn’t cut off funding to colleges that platform homophobia, so why should it cut funding for antisemitism? Jewish constituents of Rep. Nadler must find the “why focus on antisemitism” argument very comforting.

Then he attacks a ban on funding campus antisemitism as “draconian”. Who thinks fighting campus hatred of Jews is “draconian”? Jew-haters and their political allies.

Allies like Rep. Nadler.

Nadler shows he cares more about antisemites than antisemitism.

Gavin Newsom gave millions in taxpayer money to pro-Hamas mosques that call for the annihilation of Jews

Of course. To do anything else would be “Islamophobic.”

“Gavin Newsom Gave Millions to Mosques that Cheer the Annihilation of Jews,” by Chuck Ross, Washington Free Beacon, November 16, 2023:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D.) has awarded millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to mosques whose leaders have preached anti-Semitic hate and called for violence against Israel.

Newsom’s administration awarded $200,000 this year to the Sajjadia Islamic Society as part of its Nonprofit Security Grant program, which aims to help nonprofits protect against terrorist attacks. In a sermon at the mosque this month, the pro-Iran cleric Hamza Sodagar touted Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and said that Allah sent “the rockets from Hamas or Hezbollah” to strike Israel. Newsom has also awarded grants to mosques like the Islamic Center of Hawthorne and Islamic Center of Riverside, whose imams have decried the “malevolence of the Jews” and prayed for Allah to “destroy them.”

All told, the Newsom administration has given $40 million to California mosques whose leaders cheer the annihilation of Jews and Israel. Such rhetoric could fuel precisely the kind of violence the grants are meant to prevent. Newsom, considered a future Democratic presidential contender, said last month he will double funding in his state for its nonprofit security program, citing the “unconscionable terrorist attacks in Israel.” Funds will be awarded to both synagogues and mosques, Newsom’s office said.

A spokesman for California’s Office of Emergency Services, which administers the grants, said after a Washington Free Beacon inquiry that it is investigating whether any of the mosques have breached their grant requirements by facilitating hate speech.

“If it is determined they have, their funding will be immediately revoked,” said Brian Ferguson. “As a matter of principle, the State of California rejects hate speech and discrimination in all of its forms. Such speech is a menace to democratic values, social stability and peace.”

Newsom gave $200,000 last year to the Islamic Society of Corona-Norco, where preacher Hussam Ayloush asserted in a Nov. 3 sermon that it is a “lie” that Hamas’s invasion of Israel last month was an “unprovoked attack.”

“If I hear that term again, I’ll go crazy,” he said. “Unprovoked in what dictionary?”

At the Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley, which received $200,000 this year, preacher Amir Mertaban expressed support for Iraqis who fought American forces and Palestinians currently fighting Israel.

“The Palestinian brothers and sisters that are fighting resistance, shame on you if you label them terrorists,” Mertaban said. He also disputed that Hamas fighters murdered innocent Israelis during the Oct. 7 invasion. “If you’re going to make a claim that Muslims killed innocent civilians, you better be able to prove it.”

Other grant recipients have served as breeding grounds for Islamist terrorists. Newsom’s office awarded $200,000 to the Islamic Center of San Diego, which served as the home mosque for two 9/11 hijackers. Its imam, Taha Hassane, said last month that “resistance [against Israel] is justified.”

“We cannot accuse somebody who is fighting for his life to be a terrorist. The terrorist is the one who started the occupation, not the one who is defending himself,” he said in an Oct. 20 sermon….

Authorities have clashed with protestors demanding a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas-Gaza conflict outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

On Wednesday, law enforcement arrested hundreds of protesters demanding a cease-fire in the Hamas-Israel war outside the DNC Washington headquarters.

According to authorities, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), House Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) and Representative Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) were among those inside the headquarters as the clash between protesters and police sparked.

United States Capitol Police said on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, that a “large group of illegal protesters…have cleared out, but USCP officers will stay on scene out of an abundance of caution.” 

They previously put the number of demonstrators at about 150 and said they were “violently protesting in the area.”

Six officers were treated for injuries as a result of the demonstration, and one person was arrested and accused of assault on an officer, Capitol Police said on X.

According to Capitol Police, all lawmakers were evacuated from the location for their protection.

IfNotNow, an organization that bills itself as “American Jews organizing our community to end U.S. support for Israel’s apartheid system,” stated it was present at the rally and accused officers of being harsh toward protestors.

IfNotNow spokesperson Eva Borgwardt released a statement saying the protest was “nonviolent” and a “moral act of civil disobedience to call on Democrats to support a cease-fire and an end to our government’s funding of violence against Palestinian civilians by Netanyahu’s far-right government.”

Representative Sean Casten (D-Ill.), posted on X that he was “rescued” from the DNC building by “armed officers” who “did not know the protestors’ intent; they knew only that Members of Congress were inside, could not leave and that protests would not let police through.”

Chaos at DNC HQ When Pro-Palestinian Rioters Attempt to Break In

659f2b46-bffb-43ac-acfd-4f5c7c5a120b-1052x615.jpg

Chaos erupted outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters Wednesday evening when pro-Palestinian protesters became violent as they called for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) estimated that approximately 150 people were "illegally and violently protesting" near the DNC headquarters on Capitol Hill. 

Six officers were injured during the melee, according to the USCP, with either minor cuts, pepper-spray burns, or being attacked by rioters.

CNN reports that House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, House Minority Whip Katherine Clark, and Rep. Pete Aguilar were inside the building at the time of the riot, and had to be evacuated.

Around 150 officers and a minimum of 50 police cruisers from The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) were also on the scene. Videos of the chaos were shared on social media.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) reported that the situation was so bad that the Capitol went into lockdown.

The violent mob of pro-Palestinian rioters stands in contrast to the peaceful March for Israel that took place on the National Mall a day prior. 

Ask yourself why.

Tulsi Gabbard calls out Biden and Harris for their absence at the largest-ever pro-Israel rally in DC

Speaker Johnson's Remarks at 'March for Israel' Rally in Washington DC

The largest pro-Israel rally in American history was attended by an estimated 300,000 people, but Tulsi Gabbard pointed out that “there was a very loud absence”: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris did not attend. Despite the fact that people attended from all over the country, these two who were “literally just down the street,” said Gabbard, failed to show up, despite their professed support for Israel, and heedless of the fact that antisemitism, including violent attacks on Jews, has soared since October 7.

Also, Hamas isn’t a deadly threat to Israel; Hamas and its jihadi allies are a global threat. Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot with affiliates in operation throughout America and the West; they fuel pro-Palestinian rallies, which are gaining traction globally.

“Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard calls out Biden and Harris for not attending March for Israel rally in DC,” by Eden Villalovas, Washington Examiner, November 14, 2023:

Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard called out President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for not joining supporters of Israel who gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to rally against antisemitism.

“There’s a very loud absence, though, in knowing that President Biden and Vice President Harris are literally just down the street as people are traveling here from all over the country,” Gabbard said on Fox News before attending the rally herself.

Biden and Harris will arrive in San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit and are scheduled to participate in a campaign reception in the evening.

“Yet they don’t feel it’s important enough to come and stand with our Americans to send this strong resounding message at a time when antisemitic attacks around the world are at their height, that we will not allow it to continue that we stand with Israel and the Jewish people,” Gabbard added.

Gabbard, a former 2020 presidential candidate, and a U.S. Army Reserve officer, said Hamas’s goal is “not really about the territory between Israel and Gaza or Palestine” but to establish a “global Islamist caliphate and destroy anyone who doesn’t adhere to their radical interpretation of Islam including Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and others.”…

It is not in spite of things like this that Tlaib is a darling of the Left. It’s because of things like this.

“Rashida Tlaib member of secret Facebook group where Hamas terrorists glorified,” by Peter Hasson, Fox News, November 15, 2023:

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Rashida Tlaib is part of a secret social media group in which its members have glamorized Hamas in its war battle with Israel after the terror group attacked and killed hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians last month, Fox News Digital has found.

The Michigan Democrat is a member of the Palestinian-American Congress group on Facebook. The group is hidden from non-members and does not appear on the platform’s search engine, though Fox News Digital was able to gain access to it.

The group’s founder, Maher Abdel-qader, who has extensive ties to Tlaib and has also been linked to other liberal politicians, has come under fire in the past for his antisemitic social media posts, including questioning if the Holocaust ever occurred.

Rashida Tlaib

The Palestinian American Congress group, of which Tlaib is a member, has featured pro-Hamas posts in the wake of the deadly Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

On Oct. 12, one group member posted: “We don’t want to throw you in the sea…we want you to ride it back from where you came.” The message was accompanied by a picture of an elderly Israeli woman and a Hamas fighter holding her captive.

Tlaib FB group

A left-wing dark money charity funneled at least $150 million in secret contributions into progressive groups and causes in 2022.

According to tax records released by media, the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a financial powerhouse for leftist political action in Washington and across the country, spent at least $150 million last year supporting state ballot measures on abortion rights and assisting Democrats in outperforming expectations in the 2022 midterm elections, among other things.

Reports state that the non-profit hauled in $189.9 million in contributions from anonymous donors last year, according to their most recent tax filings.

Reportedly, the Sixteen Thirty Fund had passed $148 million in grants to different Democrat-aligned groups, which include organizations that work to push abortion rights and environmental initiatives.

According to the Sixteen Thirty Fund’s tax returns, the nonprofit collected more than $10 million from at least five distinct donors, with one individual contributing a whopping $34.5 million. 

The Sixteen Thirty Fund, in turn, took the anonymous funds and distributed large sums to organizations across the country. One of its largest contributions, for $20 million, went to America Votes, which bills itself as “the coordination hub for the progressive community.” 

The organization’s mission is to provide “voter education, vote by mail programs to defend our democracy and build on high levels of energy and engagement, especially in communities of color and among young people,” according to the organization’s website. 

The Sixteen Thirty Fund also handed out millions of dollars to groups such as the Run for Something Action Fund, which recruits young progressives to run for office; the Reproductive Freedom for All Committee, which opposes restrictions on abortion; Every Eligible American, a voter turnout organization; and the Secure Elections Project.

According to tax documents, the Sixteen Thirty Fund paid $750,000 to House Majority Forward, a dark money charity linked with then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in 2020. The Sixteen Thirty Fund also gave $500,000 to the Senate Majority PAC, which is affiliated with Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Biden regime doles out taxpayer money to mosques that pray for the annihilation of the Jews

No surprise here. In the past, there might have been some perfunctory attempt to ensure that the recipients of this cash were “moderate,” but now any such inquiry would be “Islamophobic.”

“These Mosques Pray for the Annihilation of Jews. They Also Receive Money From the Biden Administration.,” by Chuck Ross, Washington Free Beacon, November 13, 2023:

A federal program to help nonprofit groups protect against terrorist attacks has given millions of dollars to mosques and Islamic groups that have praised terrorists and called for the destruction of Israel, according to a Washington Free Beacon review.

The Department of Homeland Security awarded the California-based Masjid al-Ansar mosque $100,000 on March 9 under the Nonprofit Security Grants Program. Moustafa Kamel, the imam at Masjid al-Ansar, earlier this year called Jews a “bigoted and arrogant breed of people” and prayed they “will be annihilated” in a war over the Holy Land, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Then there is the Islamic Center of Detroit, which received $150,000 on Oct. 12, 2022. Its head imam, Imran Salha, said at a pro-Palestinian rally days after Hamas’s invasion of Israel that Muslims have a “fire in our hearts that will burn that state until its demise.” During a sermon in March, he referred to the “sick, disgusting Zionist regime” and prayed: “May Allah eradicate them from existence.”

The rhetoric could fuel the sorts of hate and terrorist attacks that the Homeland Security grants aim to prevent. Anti-Semitic hate crimes have surged 400 percent since Hamas’s attack, in which 1,400 Israelis were slaughtered. A bipartisan group of senators called for additional funding under the program last month to protect against “a potential rise in anti-Semitic threats.”

There is little oversight over which organizations receive funding under the program, which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state agencies. A majority of the grants have gone to synagogues, churches, mosques, and temples that do not support violence or promote terrorist organizations.

But there are also grants to outfits like the Islamic Center of San Diego, a mosque best known as the home to two 9/11 hijackers. Days after the Hamas attack, Imam Taha Hassane defended the attack on Israel as an act of self-defense.

“When people are occupied, then the resistance is justified,” he said in an Oct. 20 sermon. “We cannot accuse somebody who is fighting for his life to be a terrorist. The terrorist is the one who started the occupation, not the one who is defending himself.”

The mosque received $150,000 under the grant program on Aug. 15, according to federal spending records.

At the Flint Islamic Center, which received $300,000 in grants on Oct. 12, 2022, an Islamic scholar asserted in a sermon last month that Jews “literally live for the purpose of genocide” of Palestinians.

“These people … their businesses have foundations just to serve their objectives. They literally live for a purpose of genocide in an occupation like this,” said Shaykh Adbullah Waheed.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an advocacy group identified as a co-conspirator of Hamas, has mounted a public awareness campaign to urge mosques and Islamic nonprofits to apply for Homeland Security grants. CAIR noted that fewer than 50 Islamic organizations had received funding under the program, largely due to “concerns about the potential strings attached” to accepting the federal funds….

FBI Investigates Potential Turkish Government Ties to Eric Adams Mayoral Campaign

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has spoken out about his role in the new Turkish consulate building project amid reports that he pressured the city to approve the building despite safety concerns.

Following his victory in the 2021 Democratic mayoral primary, Adams (D-N.Y.), who was Brooklyn’s borough president at the time, reportedly contacted Daniel Nigro, the then New York City fire commissioner.

Adams allegedly then urged Nigro to allow Turkish government officials to utilize the unopened building. The structure had faced delays as fire department officials had withheld approval due to safety concerns, according to sources cited by The New York Times.

OAN has not independently verified the Times report.

Adams said in a statement Sunday via campaign spokesperson Evan Thies that part of his role as Brooklyn borough president was to “notify government agencies of issues on behalf of constituents and constituencies.”

“I have not been accused of wrongdoing and I will continue to cooperate with investigators,” he said.

City Hall Chief Counsel Lisa Zornberg echoed that statement on Sunday, saying that Adams and her team are cooperating with investigators.

“We hope that investigators will continue to cooperate with us and reprimand any federal officer who has improperly leaked details about this investigation,” Zornberg said, “as such conduct could prejudice the public and undermines the integrity of our law enforcement process.”

As part of an ongoing inquiry into campaign fundraising, FBI agents seized multiple electronic devices from Mayor Adams earlier this week. The mayor’s team asserted that it had voluntarily informed authorities about an individual involved in the federal investigation who had engaged in improper conduct. 

During a recent news conference, Adams expressed skepticism, stating he would be “shocked” if investigators uncovered any evidence of his campaign coordinating illegal activities.

Text exchanges between Adams, Daniel Nigro, and Turkish Consul General Reyhan Özgür from September 2021 hinted at the possibility that the mayor played a role in expediting the opening of the Turkish government’s new building, according to sources cited by the New York Post. However, these sources also noted that the texts did not appear to reveal any criminal activity.

In the text messages, Özgür reportedly asked Adams if he could help the building receive a “temporary certificate of occupancy” from the city’s fire department, according to the sources’ descriptions of the text messages, and Adams then asked Nigro to look into it, but didn’t instruct him to do anything in particular.

Adams reportedly more than $2 million for his re-election campaign in 2025. Adams, formerly a New York Police Department captain, had campaigned as a tough-on-crime Democrat who would increase the city’s police staffing and funding.

In July, charges were brought against six individuals in connection with an alleged plan to channel tens of thousands of dollars to Adams’ campaign through straw donors, individuals whose names were used to bypass individual donation limits. Two of the individuals pleaded guilty.

These allegations, filed in state court, did not directly implicate Adams, and his representatives have maintained that he was unaware of the purported scheme.

Pope Francis has removed Bishop Joseph E. Strickland from the pastoral governance of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas.

On Saturday, Pope Francis ordered the removal of Bishop Strickland who is one of his harshest detractors among Roman Catholic conservatives in the United States, after he refused to resign following a Vatican probe. 

The decision came amid Strickland, 65, who has emerged as a prominent critic of Francis, accusing him earlier this year in a tweet of “undermining the deposit of faith.” 

Strickland recently questioned Francis’ month-long closed-door debate on making the church more welcoming and attentive to the concerns of today’s Catholics. The gathering debated a number of traditionally taboo themes, such as women in leadership posts and accepting LGBTQ+ Catholics, but the final text did not depart from established doctrine.

Strickland called it a “travesty” that such topics were even on the table for debate before the meeting.

The Vatican brought in investigators earlier this year to check into his governance of the diocese, following reports that priests and laypeople in Tyler had complained and that he was making unorthodox assertions.

The Vatican never revealed the conclusions, and Strickland argued in media interviews that he was given a mandate to serve as bishop by the late Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 and couldn’t relinquish that role.

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the head of the church in Texas said that the two Vatican investigators sent to investigate Strickland “conducted an exhaustive inquiry into all aspects of the diocese’s governance and leadership.” 

“The continuation in office of Bishop Strickland was not feasible,” DiNardo said in a statement Saturday, following their inquiry.

The Vatican urged Strickland to quit on Thursday, but he refused, causing Francis to dismiss him two days later, according to DiNardo’s statement.
