NATO is mapping out “land corridors” to enable US troops and other allied forces to reach the front lines quicker in the event of a broader European ground war with Russia.

The move follows warnings from NATO leaders earlier this year urging Western governments to prepare themselves for a full-blown war with Russia sometime in the next 20 years.

The newly established troop expressways would see American soldiers landing at one of five designated ports.

It is impossible to watch the photographic documentation of the ugly, violent demonstrators during Wednesday's parade of Jewish supremacy through the streets of Jerusalem without hearing Prof. Yeshayahu Leibowitz's warning echoing in the background. "The national pride and euphoria that followed the Six-Day War are temporary and will bring us from proud, rising nationalism to extreme, messianic, ultranationalism. The third stage will be brutality and the final stage will be the end of Zionism," the farsighted philosopher said.

'Israel's government has a distorted view of victory. The war is more a crusade for them'

The process of brutalization is at its height. "The general spirit was that of revenge," wrote Haaretz journalist Nir Hasson, who was assaulted by a gang of teens who hurled him to the ground and kicked him. "The leading symbol on the marchers' shirts was the Kahanist fist, the popular chant was a particularly bloody revenge song, alongside chants of 'Death to Arabs' and 'May their village burn.' The most popular minister was Itamar Ben-Gvir and the overall atmosphere was frightening."

On the surface, it was a blockbuster jobs report, certainly one which nobody expected, with the two largest US banks - JPMorgan and Goldman - both expecting a below-consensus print at 150K and 165K, respectively (well we did, and we said that the jobs print "will beat" shortly before it was published)

The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) has announced its temporary pier for Gaza, which has been out of commission for a couple of weeks after it was broken apart by choppy Mediterranean seas, has been fully reestablished and is operational.

"At approximately 2:15 pm (local Gaza time) on June 7, US Central Command (CENTCOM) successfully reestablished the temporary pier in Gaza, enabling the continued delivery of much-needed humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza," CENTCOM said in a statement posted to X. Watch the pier make landing on the beach again:

A new wave of enthusiasm is emerging for former President Trump among VCs and business leaders across America. While some (or much) of this may be simply reading tea leaves and staying nimble, it's worth noting that many former Democrat defenders are now on team Trump.

It doesn't take a crystal ball to see how disastrous economic policies (Bidenomics), failed foreign policies (Ukraine), a chaotic southern border, lawless cities, and the weaponization of the judicial system against political opponents are all contributing to sliding support for the left. And of course, Silicon Valley’s political elites just want stability and prosperity - not this uncertainty and inflation delivered under Biden. 

To that end, famed investor David Sacks, who previously gave $33,400 to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign and, more recently, backed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Ron DeSantis, joined the growing list of notable money managers who have gone 'all-in' by endorsing President Trump.

“The old left had intellectual commitments that were false in interesting and theoretically stimulating ways. The new left demands adherence to lurid absurdities so preposterous that merely entertaining them induces nauseating neurological disorders.”

- Xenocosmography on “X”

The most astounding part of America’s “Joe Biden” three-plus-years thrill ride is that the Party of Chaos and Hoaxes was able to pretend until just a few days ago that this political phantasm could run for re-election. Now, regime insiders are forced to confess that they can’t hide it anymore. They spilled the beans as “unnamed sources” this week in a huge Wall Street Journal article. The president is going necrotic in full view of the whole world. His mind is gone. He looks ridiculous when he shuffles in front of the cameras. He utters obvious absurdities and lies. His wife has to lead him around like a dog on a leash. Everyone can see it. He’s got to go. ASAP.

A former Navy attorney who helped lead the military investigation of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American servicemen says former President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident.

In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.

“Why would our government put Israel’s interests ahead of our own?” Moorer asked from his wheelchair at the news conference. He was chief of naval operations at the time of the attack.

These trials were insane, where Alex was issued default judgements without even being able to present his case. The fact that they were not dismissed in the first place was unbelievable. It is a well known fact that it is virtually impossible for public figures to sue for defamation, as once you make yourself a public figure, people have a right to form all kinds of opinions on you.

The argument was that these “families” of the “dead kids” were somehow not public figures, even though they were in public – on the TV – demanding gun control.

Oliver Darcy writes for CNN:

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Thursday moved to liquidate his personal assets, agreeing to demands from the families of Sandy Hook victims whom he owes more than $1.5 billion in damages over his lies about the 2012 school massacre.

It’s not proved they were lies.

None of this was ever dealt with in court.

If Alex would have been able to present the facts of the event in court, the reasons why he had questions as to the veracity of the events as told by the media, most people would have come to the conclusion that it was at least reasonable to be asking questions.

Do you remember the endless assurances we were given that the Covid vax was “safe and effective”? The assurances were lies. The reports can no longer be suppressed that excess deaths in all highly Covid-19 vaccinated countries are skyrocketing.

Scientists are beginning to gingerly call governments’ attention to the extraordinary rise in the death rate. They say the vaccine “might” be part of the reason. But there is nothing else to blame, and if there is the scientists don’t say what. They ask the governments to investigate the underlying causes of the “unprecedented” number of excess deaths, including “possible vaccine harm.”

In other words, the scientists understand that too forceful a statement can cut off their research money and terminate their careers. But they cannot avoid acknowledging the unprecedented jump in excess deaths following the mass vaccination.

Calls for investigation never produce results. Scientists called for investigating 9/11. They were ignored. When they undertook the investigation themselves, the results were ignored.

US Rep. Dr. Rich McCormick (R , GA) is far from perfect. He is misguided on many issues and has, like the rest of them, imbibed many of the kool-aid narratives.

But on the coercively imposed Covid protocols, he is superb. Here he is holding Anthony Fauci, in my considered opinion one of the major mass murders in human history, accountable.

I find it extraordinary that the American people fall for every orchestration the government and its whore media present to them. It is the gullibility of Americans that has enabled the government to define truth-tellers as conspiracy theorists.

San Francisco opened its first $5.5 million free food “market”, where approved residents can show a benefits eligibility card, put what they want in their carts, check out to keep track of outgoing inventory, and leave without paying.

The Bayview-Hunters Point facility aims to be a food pantry alternative that replicates the supermarket experience in an area where many grocery stores have come but few have remained due to high crime.

The 4000-square foot District 10 Market is the first of San Francisco’s food empowerment “markets” funded by the San Francisco’s Human Services Agency. Eligible individuals receive a Costo-like benefits card that allows use of the facility once per month. Eligibility is limited to individuals who live within one of three zip codes, be verified social services clients, have dependents under 25 or a qualified food-related illness, and be referred by one of eleven community organizations in the market’s referral network.

Webmaster addition: This is not going to work. Given the current high costs of food, this market will be swamped and quickly run out of funds!

A House select subcommittee is scheduled to conduct a transcribed interview with former New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday to ask about the state's high number of nursing home deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic subpoenaed Cuomo in March.

"Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo implemented nursing home policies that had deadly consequences for New York's most vulnerable population," Chair Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, said in a statement. "Not only did the former Governor put the elderly in harm's way, but he also attempted to cover-up his failures by hiding the true nursing home death rate. It appears that politics, not medicine, was responsible for these decisions."

In the midst of the country's COVID plight, Cuomo issued an executive order requiring nursing homes to take back patients who had been hospitalized for COVID-19 and were recovering. More than 15,800 New York nursing home residents died during the pandemic.

A Second Amendment group is vowing to sue to defend former President Donald Trump with the New York Police Department seeking to revoke his concealed carry license following his felony conviction in the hush money trial.

Trump was convicted by a Manhattan jury last Thursday of 34 felony charges of falsifying business documents to cover up alleged hush money payments to porn actor Stormy Daniels. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee plans to appeal the verdict and denies any wrongdoing, claiming the prosecution is politically motivated.

Under New York law, convicted felons are not allowed to have firearm permits. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is also a federal crime. Trump’s concealed carry license was suspended last year after he was indicted on the charges, and several media outlets are reporting that the NYPD could permanently revoke his gun rights.

But the Second Amendment Foundation, a Washington-based gun rights group, said it will take New York officials to court if they try to permanently take the former president’s concealed carry permit and his guns.

Biden’s Department of Justice arraigned whistleblower Dr. Eithan Haim in June 2023, the morning he was supposed to graduate from his medical residency, after he blew the whistle on an illegal child “transgender” medicine clinic. Haim has now been indicted with four felony counts of HIPAA violations by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tina Ansari.

Texas Children’s Hospital CEO Mark Wallace made a public declaration in 2023 that the hospital would be discontinuing its “transgender” medicine program and treatments of minors to comply with Texas statutes. Haim then revealed to the public that the hospital had failed to do as Wallace promised.

EXCLUSIVE: Last year, Texas Children's Hospital announced it was stopping "gender-affirming care" on minors.

But I've obtained internal records indicating that TCH secretly restarted its child sex-change program three days later—and has continued it en masse ever since.

The judge presiding over former President Trump’s New York criminal trial notified his defense team on Friday of a comment on the court's public Facebook page that implies one of the jurors discussed the guilty verdict with family before the trial concluded.

Fox News obtained the letter Judge Juan Merchan shared with Trump defense attorneys and Manhattan prosecutors. 

"'Today, the Court became aware of a comment that was posted on the Unified Court System's public Facebook page and which I now bring to your attention. In the comment, the user, ‘Michael Anderson,’ states:

"’My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted! Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!’"

Living in Gaza under the current circumstances is akin to being “sealed off from the world in the huge concentration camp,” American political scientist Norman Finkelstein told Al Arabiya English.

Speaking to Riz Khan in an exclusive interview, Finkelstein said the population of Gaza “sealed off from the world” is facing a “death sentence” following the long-time denial of aid – primarily food, water, fuel and medical supply.

For the latest updates on the Israel-Palestine conflict, visit our dedicated page.

“If you deny any food, fuel, water or electricity to a captive population sealed off from the world in the huge concentration camp, then you are in effect issuing a death sentence on that population,” Finkelstein said.

“I would say personally that the Palestinians do not need recourse to the Nazi Holocaust, or any need to appropriate its terminology in order to demonstrate the magnitude of the horror that's being inflicted on Gaza,” he added.

The Holocaust was deemed a genocide against the European Jewish community during World War II on the hands of the German Nazis.

The term ‘Holocaust’ has been increasingly used by Israel to describe the event of October 7, which Finkelstein, the son of Holocaust survivors, calls a methodical cheapening of the word.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has once again warned against the rise of the far-right parties in Europe, saying they can bring the continent to “a standstill.”

"Europe has never been so threatened," Macron said in televised interview on Thursday, referring to the rise of the far-right in France and other European countries.

"If tomorrow France sends a large far-right delegation and if other major countries do the same, Europe could find itself at a standstill," he said.

Macron called on people to go and vote in the European Parliament elections on Sunday.

"I see the levels of abstention (...) and I call on compatriots to go and vote on 9 June", he said, mentioning the opponents of Brexit, who did not come out in sufficient numbers to make their voices heard during the referendum held in 2016 about whether the UK should remain a member of the EU or leave the bloc.

Macron’s remarks came as polls are indicating France’s far-right National Rally is extending its lead against his party.

The Biden administration is seeking to prevent its Arab partners from advancing a far-reaching vision for an Israel-Palestinian peace settlement when the war in Gaza is over, and is instead advancing a more scaled back framework that is still certain to be rejected by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, according to documents obtained by The Times of Israel.

Since the beginning of the year, the US has been leading a contact group of top ministers from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority aimed at advancing a plan for the post-war management of the Gaza Strip.

The Arab ministers have also been meeting to coordinate as a group independently of the US. In April, they finished drafting their post-war vision, which included immediate international recognition of a Palestinian state, the establishment of a peacekeeping force in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the launch of peace talks between Israel and the PA to be completed within two years, leading to a transfer of Israeli control of West Bank crossings to the PA, according to leaked passages of the proposal obtained by the US.

Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad have been added to the United Nations’ so-called “list of shame,” which is attached to an annual report released by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s office that documents alleged rights violations against children in armed conflict, sparking outrage in Jerusalem.

This is the first time that Israel and Hamas have been included on this list, joining the ranks of Russia, the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

Israel is believed to be the first democratic country included on the list. Last year, Russia was added to the list for the first time over its treatment of children in the war against Ukraine.

The EU has plunged into “war psychosis” in the Ukraine conflict, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said, arguing that this mindset will almost certainly lead to the deployment of Western troops in the country.

In an interview with Radio Kossuth on Friday, Orban said the West was “approaching the end of its possibilities” for the conflict between Moscow and Kiev to be ended, adding that “whoever claims that there is no immediate danger of war is deceiving people.”

“Only a blind person does not see that there is a war psychosis in Europe, the logical conclusion of which will be the arrival of the military units of the Western European countries on the territory of Ukraine, at best not on the front line,” the prime minister said.

Orban said that, despite tensions reaching boiling point, “hope dies last” and the ongoing European Parliament election could defuse the crisis to a certain extent.

The number of US personnel within the NATO contingent in Europe amounts to 80,000 troops, US President Joe Biden said in a letter to the US Congress.

"Approximately 80,000 United States Armed Forces personnel are assigned or deployed to North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries in Europe, including those deployed to reassure our allies and to deter further Russian aggression," the US leader asserted. Last year, in a similar notice, the US president also said that 80,000 US troops were deployed in NATO countries. According to the document, 576 Americans are part of the NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR).

Biden specified that about 2,320 US troops are stationed in Saudi Arabia, 3,813 - in Jordan, and 75 in Lebanon. According to the document, approximately 700 US troops are currently deployed to Niger. However, the Pentagon is in the process of their withdrawal which "will be completed over the next several months," the US leader said.

Critics have been very vocal about Biden’s struggles on the global stage. In just four years of a Biden presidency, we have seen wars erupt worldwide. Russia attacked Europe. Iran-backed terrorists attacked Israel. And other threats are only growing.

It doesn’t seem America’s allies trust Biden to do anything besides opening his checkbook. Biden has spent hundreds of billions of American dollars only to see more war and bloodshed spread.

Republicans shut down Biden’s attempt to send more money to endless wars while neglecting significant problems in America. But Biden still seems more concerned for other countries than his own people. Because he just embarrassed himself before the whole world by doing this.

From Breitbart:
A contrite President Joe Biden publicly apologized for the first time Friday to Ukraine for delays in American military assistance as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky appealed for yet more and more U.S. support “like it was during World War II.” …
