“We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth … For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.” — Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775

Some House Democrats are fuming over a vote scheduled for Wednesday by Speaker Mike Johnson that could force them to side against elements on the left that are protesting against Israel.

Anti-Semitic, far-left demonstrators have taken over college campuses while lawmakers, such as Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, have sided with their cause.

But not all Democrats have come right out and stated their support for the protests.

Over the past four years, many of us have had the unpleasant surprise of learning that our go-to restaurant, coffee shop, or fast food joint was closing doors for good. Thousands of well-established companies have gone out of business since the pandemic accelerated the descent of the U.S. economy, and conditions have been particularly tough in the restaurant industry. Even during the best of times, managing a restaurant comes with plenty of uncertainty. Though a brand can be incredibly popular amongst consumers, there’s a variety of factors that can result in mass closings, and in some cases, bankruptcy.

Eight Democrat-nominated judges shoved transgender surgery closer to becoming a constitutional right via their decision Monday in a federal appeals court.

No Democrat-nominated judges voted with the six Republican-nominated judges who strenuously denounced the court’s decision, further demonstrating how transgenderism has quickly become a litmus test for ambitious progressives in the Democratic Party.

It sounds like a dream, but it's true in Antarctica, gold rains from the sky. Tucked in among the glaciers, fiery Mount Erebus is the southernmost active volcano on Earth, providing a bit of heat amid the frozen landscape.

The frozen continent features 138 volcanoes, according to a 2017 study, with around nine of them reported as active. With a summit elevation of 12,448 feet (3,794 meters), Mount Erebus is the most well-known.

Erebus is one of three volcanoes that form Ross Island, and it's said that it was erupting when it was discovered in 1841 during the voyage of Captain James Clark Ross, who carried out important magnetic surveys in the Arctic and Antarctic and discovered the Ross Sea and the Victoria Land region of Antarctica. 'HMS Erebus' was the name of one of his ships.

In a post on X on Sunday, she wrote, “I can understand why some people are upset about a 20 year old (sic) story of Cricket, one of the working dogs at our ranch, in my upcoming book — No Going Back. The book is filled with many honest stories of my life, good and bad days, challenges, painful decisions, and lessons learned.”

“What I learned from my years of public service, especially leading South Dakota through COVID, is people are looking for leaders who are authentic, willing to learn from the past, and don’t shy away from tough challenges. My hope is anyone reading this book will have an understanding that I always work to make the best decisions I can for the people in my life,” she continued, adding, “The fact is, South Dakota law states that dogs who attack and kill livestock can be put down. Given that Cricket had shown aggressive behavior toward people by biting them, I decided what I did.”

Boston’s Northeastern University is among the dozens of schools that have recently experienced student protests over Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza. University authorities recently had the campus “cleared” by police, however, after a shout of “Kill the Jews” was heard. The only problem? It was a pro-Israel counterprotester who shouted the offending phrase.

In a hearing of the House Armed Services committee today, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) pressed Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin about the potential harms' way that U.S. service members might be in while they work on the planned humanitarian pier project in Gaza.

Bottom line: U.S. military will be armed (they always are) and will have the ability and authority to defend themselves if they are shot at from the beach (ostensibly they will be on the pier that will be anchored to the Gaza coast). When Gaetz asked if there was a likelihood they will encounter unfriendly fire, Austin said yes.

Webmaster addition: Secdef is setting those people working on the pier as human targets to justify direct US involvement in Israel's genocide against Palestinians.

Heaven forbid that students would skip class to try and stop a genocide.

Such a message is being sent by the French political elite – horrified that protests in solidarity with Palestinians have been held at SciencesPo, a well-known Paris university.

No doubt fearing that such protests will spread, Israel’s supporters are alleging they have an ulterior motive.

As the European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) is prominent in efforts to smear protesters, an examination of the group’s policies and philosophy – if that’s the right word – is necessary.

Far from being dedicated to preventing bigotry, the EUJS explicitly defines itself as Zionist. It is, therefore, wedded to the ideology undergirding the dispossession of Palestinians in the 1940s and the genocide being perpetrated against them at this very moment.

Israel’s decades of impunity are over, or so its leaders fear and are leaking reports to the media that war crimes arrest warrants are imminent in an effort to get its allies to thwart them.

The leaked rumors that members of Israel’s war cabinet – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, defense minister Yoav Gallant and the military chief Herzi Halevi – will soon be indicted may very well be credible.

Reuters reported on Monday that staff at Gaza hospitals – which over the past several months have been stripped of their ability to provide care and transformed into mass graves – were interviewed by International Criminal Court investigators.

It is possible that arrest warrants against senior Israeli officials have already been issued in confidentiality.

An unnamed “Israeli diplomatic source” protested the perceived silence of the Biden administration over the ICC to The Jerusalem Post.

That unnamed official’s anger at Joe Biden is misplaced.

Washington’s incantations declaring its “ironclad” support for Israel and Israel’s supposed right to self-defense should be understood as a declaration of preserving Israeli impunity at all costs.

Nancy Pelosi's handlers only grant interviews to people they feel won't ask hard questions and/or in any way contradict the talking points they programmed Schmancy with that day. On occasion when the journalismer assigned to her has a fleeting moment of intellectual honesty, she short circuits. That happened with MSNBC's Katy Tur. AKA, Keith Olbermann's ex-girlfriend who allegedly beat the crap out of him.

When Democrats claim Joe Biden created eleventy billion jobs to replace the elventy billion jobs Donald Trump lost, it's not uncommon when watching Louder with Crowder to point out that the Trump job losses were due to the global pandemic and the government forcing businesses to close. Hence, Biden's job "gains" were those jobs coming back when the government told businesses they could open again.
