The New York Post reported that a parody social media account called "Chief Rabbi of Gaza Linda Goldstein" has fooled another squad member, this time pro-Palestinian Rep. Cori Bush.

The development came after Bush's reelection campaign considered a fundraiser with "Rabbi Linda Goldstein," which is a fake X account that deliberately posts anti-Israel sentiments to draw in those too ready to condemn the Jewish state.

The report noted that the fake social media account had previously fooled Bush's ally Rep. Jamaal Bowman. The fake account reached out to Team Bush late last month, hoping to pitch a fundraising idea.

Sir Tony Blair urged Sir Keir Starmer to come up with a plan for controlling immigration in a bid to tackle the threat posed by Nigel Farage. The former Labour leader offered the Prime Minister a three-point solution to fight Reform UK. He said Sir Keir's focus should be on illegal migration with the introduction of digital identity cards, a robust approach to law and order, and avoiding "vulnerability on wokeism".

As many have since noted, it speaks to the sheer toxicity that the corrupt conglomerate of corporations, information gatekeepers and partisan special-interests within the Beltway.

The Biden debate scandal and subsequent fallout effectively proved that not only has lying within the political Establishment become systemic, but it makes no difference if it is even a credible lie.

There is an almost taunting quality to putting forth something utterly implausible and challenging people to question it, knowing they lack the institutional power to hold the liars accountable.

The new Prime Minister is expected to use a major summit at Blenheim Palace later this month to unofficially get the ball rolling. Sir Keir is said to want lower trade barriers and have more relaxed freedom of movement rules. EU sources believe he is willing to sign Britain up to some of Brussels's rules in exchange. But Mr Johnson warned against any renegotiation of the five-year pact he signed in 2020. The former prime minister told the Mail on Sunday: "The great sell-out begins. "Behind these harmless-sounding agreements is the reality that the UK will be accepting rules set by Brussels – no matter how onerous – with no UK say on the making of those rules. "We are on the road to serfdom under Starmer."

A White House staffer who has worked closely with President Joe Biden for years has revealed how the commander-in-chief's mental acuity has seemingly declined.

The senior White House official who worked with the Biden during his presidency, vice presidency and 2020 campaign told the New York Times he no longer believes the 81-year-old has what it takes to defeat Trump.

That official, who declined to be named so he could speak openly, said the president has shown more and more signs of his age in recent months - speaking more slowly, haltingly and quietly.

Biden has also appeared more fatigued in private, the staffer said, concluding that he should not continue to seek re-election.

Voters have been raising concerns about Joe Biden's age since he launched his 2019 bid for President at age 77.

But doctors tell DailyMail.com an alarming deterioration began in 2021.

After his disastrous performance in last week's debate, many have been left wondering how long the now-81-year-old's faculties have been diminished — and how long his team has known about it.

We asked several doctors to review a Mail time-lapse of the ailing President over the decades and also to consider his public appearances. 

The consensus was that there was a sharp decline both in his appearance and cognitive abilities beginning in 2021, according to the experts, who spoke on and off the record due to lingering fears their comments could cause reputational damage.

First lady Jill Biden is unleashing fury at those who are trying to force President Joe Biden to quit his re-election campaign following his disastrous debate performance last week against former President Donald Trump.

ABC News host Martha Raddatz said following Biden’s interview with the network on Friday that sources inside the White House have told her that Biden’s “very tight inner circle” is pushing Biden to stay in the race and that he will win as long as he keeps going.

“This of course includes his wife Jill who they said is lashing out at those who want him to get out of the race,” she added.

Two radio stations confirmed on Saturday that they were given questions by Biden officials ahead of their interviews with President Joe Biden this week as the administration fights for its survival following Biden’s disastrous debate performance last week against former President Donald Trump.

The questions reportedly were drafted by officials at the White House and were then sent to the radio stations by Biden’s presidential campaign.

Andrea Lawful-Sanders, host of “The Source” on WURD in Philadelphia, told CNN that “the questions were sent to me for approval. I approved them.”

Long-time Democratic donor Whitney Tilson has claimed that President Joe Biden may step aside as the party’s nominee soon due to a significant drop in support. Speaking on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Tilson expressed his belief that Biden’s support within the Democratic Party has all but evaporated, particularly after his recent debate performance.

Tilson recounted that initially, many Democrats thought Biden’s debate issues were a one-time occurrence. However, he now finds it challenging to locate any supporters among donors and party members. “The dam has broken,” Tilson stated, noting that respect for Biden’s long career remains, but confidence in his ability to defeat Trump is lacking.

He shared that while public calls for Biden to step down are limited, many are privately advocating for his withdrawal to avoid solidifying his determination to stay in the race. The concerns have grown more pronounced as early post-debate polls indicate Trump’s lead over Biden is increasing.

President Joe Biden, in an effort to justify his poor performance in a recent debate, has made false claims about President Donald Trump. Biden’s remarks came during an ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos on Friday, as he sought to address growing concerns within the Democratic Party about his ability to continue his presidential campaign.

Biden, 81, claimed that his debate struggles were due to interruptions from Trump, despite footage showing Trump standing silently as Biden stumbled over his words. The President described his debate performance as a “bad episode,” attributing it to exhaustion from being “sick” with what doctors identified as a “really bad cold.”

During the interview, Biden acknowledged that he was responsible for his debate preparation and performance, dismissing any notion that others were to blame. However, he falsely alleged that Trump was attempting to interrupt him during the debate, stating, “Even when I was answering a question, even though they turned his mic off, he was still shouting. And I let it distract me.”

Nobody likes to lose but leftists take indignant defeat to a whole new level.  Though they claim to "defend democracy" in their spare time, Democrats also have a tendency to abandon the democratic process when that process interferes with their intentions to remain in power.  

Case in point: The Supreme Court's recent decision to give immunity from prosecution to Donald Trump in the case of "some official acts" taken during his tenure in office.  Leftists have responded with outrage at the 6-3 decision with much of their political hopes resting on the strategy of burying Trump in as many legal battles as possible to keep him from running for president again.  Democrats are now flooding social media and the news feeds with suggestions that the SC decision makes it possible for Joe Biden as president to eliminate the conservative competition "as a part of his official duties."

A young Palestinian receiving care aboard the UAE's floating hospital in Egypt has described the horror of being buried under rubble for nearly an hour after an Israeli air attack killed several of her relatives.

Malak Khalid, 20, said she and her two younger brothers were left "without a family or house", following the deadly attack on their Gaza home in April.

She bears the emotional and physical scars of a conflict in which more than 38,000 Palestinians have died and more than 87,000 have been wounded.

Ms Khalid recalls a drone flying over their building in Nuseirat getting louder but she does not remember the explosion that followed.

“The memory of the aftermath is printed in my brain. You don’t feel the strike itself you just open your eyes under the rubble,” Ms Khalid told The National.

It’s no secret that Americans love guns. Not only do nearly half of Americans say they live in a household with guns, but the U.S. beats out every other nation on Earth when it comes to gun density (the 2nd most gun-dense country is Yemen, and it’s not even close). The U.S. is actually the only country that has more guns than people. Given all that, it’s not much of a surprise that, in some states, you can now walk into a grocery store and buy bullets from a vending machine as if you were ordering a candy bar or a soda.

Well, sorta. Not quite. The vending machine company behind this new trend, American Rounds, says it uses artificial intelligence and facial recognition technologies to verify that buyers are of legal age to buy bullets. So it’s a slightly more rigorous process than buying a Twix.

A tech expert with a track record of predicting sea changes in the industry has made several eye-popping new forecasts in a new book.  

Google’s Ray Kurzweil famously predicted the iPhone era and the fact that a computer would beat someone at chess by 1998.

In his new book, 'The Singularity is Nearer’, Kurzweil predicts that humans fully merge with AI, becoming immortal cyborgs, by 2045.

He also predicts that advancements in AI will make it possible to resurrect loved ones and connect our brains to cloud technology, in what he calls the ‘fifth epoch’ of human intelligence.

Amid the war in Gaza, more doubt is being raised about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ties with Qatar, which hosts Hamas leadership and was a mediator with the Jewish nation's truce negotiations with the Palestinian militant group. Reports this week have claimed that Israel and its leaders received millions of dollars in funds from the Arab nation, some of which went into helping administer Gaza, but eventually helped Hamas, according to critics.

Anti-government groups announced a “day of disruption” on Sunday to demand new elections as Israel enters its tenth month since October 7, with 116 people kidnapped in the shock Hamas attack still languishing in captivity in Gaza.

Sunday’s demonstrations will form part of the “week of resistance” protest groups kicked off at their weekly protests on Saturday evening. The protesters said they would block major highways on Sunday, including routes 2, 4 and 6, and hold rallies across the country, culminating in a mass demonstration outside the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv.

The Kirya demonstration will follow a rally outside the Histadrut’s Tel Aviv offices to call on Israel’s largest labor federation to strike in solidarity with the protest groups’ demand for the government to step down. A demonstration is also planned for Sunday morning outside the Kiryat Ono home of Histadrut chief Arnon Bar-David, who has previously indicated his support for the anti-government protests.

The Labour Party leader also signaled he will maintain Conservative Party policies on Ukraine and NATO, suggesting that Britons' votes matter little when it comes to determining their country's foreign policy.

Newly minted British Prime Minister Keir Starmer has revealed he will continue the foreign policy of the outgoing Conservative Party government, including the UK’s implicit doctrine of an offensive “first use” nuclear strike on its adversaries.

“Questioned on 3 June at a campaign hustings in the marginal town of Bury, Starmer said: ‘Of course I would be prepared to use’ nuclear weapons,” reported journalist Richard Norton-Taylor for the website Declassified UK. “Surrounded by candidates who were armed forces veterans, the Labour leader doubled down: ‘It’s a vital part of our defence. And of course, that means we have to be prepared to use it.’”

US President Joe Biden says he has been “running the world” and therefore does not actually need any cognitive tests to prove his fitness for office.

The president made the remarks in an interview with ABC News on Friday, when the 81-year-old was repeatedly pressed by George Stephanopoulos about the growing concerns surrounding his mental and physical condition.

Asked whether he has “had a full neurological and cognitive evaluation,” Biden provided a rather incoherent response.

London’s support for Kiev during the conflict with Moscow will remain at the same level under his leadership, the new Prime Minister of Britain Keir Starmer has told Vladimir Zelensky.

Starmer replaced Rishi Sunak as the head of the UK government on Friday after the Labour Party he leads claimed a landslide victory in a general election, securing at least 412 of the 650 seats in parliament. One of his first phone calls in the new role was with Zelensky.

The Ukrainian leader wrote on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday that during their conversation he congratulated Starmer on becoming prime minister and “wished him success in fulfilling the British people’s expectations of the new government.”

Members of the ‘Chosen Company’, an international mercenary group fighting on behalf of Ukraine, may have committed war crimes by killing wounded or surrendering Russian soldiers, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing a German battlefield medic.

In an article published on Saturday, the paper detailed an account from Caspar Grosse, a former German soldier who served as a medic for the unit and allegedly witnessed the events.

He described an incident in August 2023, when a severely injured and unarmed Russian soldier, initially presumed dead, crawled out of a trench saying “help” and “surrender” in English, only to be shot in the chest by a member of the unit. The Russian was still “breathing and wiggling around” when another fighter “just shot him in the head,” which Grosse assumed was a "mercy kill" at that point.

In another episode recounted by Grosse, a Greek soldier known as Zeus tossed a grenade at two Russian soldiers, one of whom was seriously injured and “could barely move.” A second serviceman tried to approach the mercenaries with his hands up when the grenade explosion killed them both, according to a helmet camera video reviewed by the publication. Grosse added that a Ukrainian drone team also confirmed at the time that the soldier was apparently trying to surrender.

In an utterly stunning development in eastern Europe, China has sent troops from its People's Liberation Army (PLA) to Belarus, to participate side-by-side with Belarus troops in an "exercise." - as NATO places 115,000 troops on Belarus' Border.

Word of this began to leak out around 5:00 AM eastern US time today (Saturday July 6) when avid air enthusiasts noticed an unidentified plane in Belarus air space.   It had begun squawking a Transponder beacon, but was not identifying itself.

Sir Keir Starmer will start the process to renegotiate Britain's post-Brexit deal within weeks, The Mail on Sunday has been told.

The new Prime Minister wants more relaxed freedom of movement rules and lower trade barriers, EU sources believe, and is willing to sign the UK back up to some Brussels rules in exchange. 

They are expecting him to use a summit at Winston Churchill's birthplace, Blenheim Palace, later this month to unofficially set the wheels in motion. 

But Boris Johnson last night sounded the alarm about any renegotiation, warning: 'We are on the road to serfdom under Starmer.'
