Debate takeaways for Israel | Israel Today |

[By Caroline Glick of evicting Palestinians from the Temple Mount and replace the Islam holy place. History will prove the chosen people right ... the second coming in support.]

The 2024 presidential race has always hinged on who it's about.

There was nothing remotely surprising about US President Joe Biden's performance at the presidential debate in Atlanta on Thursday night. The doddering, muttering, angry and seemingly confused man staring emptily, with mouth agape who stood on the CNN debate stage was the same man who has shown up before the cameras nearly every day since Biden was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 2021.


Deep-seated hostility towards the Jewish state

This brings us to the second question. What difference will this make for Israel?

And how would a different Democratic president treat Israel?

In the case of Newsom or Shapiro, in all likelihood, their Israel policy would be a continuation of Biden's. To the extent that Biden has become more hostile over time, they would continue on that trajectory. This is the case because Biden's policies aren't his personal preferences. His pro-Iran, pro-Palestinian policies are those of the Democratic Party's foreign-policy establishment.
That establishment takes its cues from former President Barack Obama and current US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Every one of Biden's Middle East advisors served in the Obama administration. Blinken, who owes his position to his longstanding service to Biden--first when Biden was in the Senate and then as vice president--shares Obama's sympathies for Iran and the Palestinians, in addition to his hostility towards Israel.

If Newsom or Shapiro--or any other Democrat--is selected to serve as party nominee by the party bosses who control the convention, then he will owe his position to the party bosses that put him there, not to voters. They have no independent source of power to draw from if they oppose the policies that Obama's party establishment expects them to adopt. And so, they can be expected to continue down the road of progressively more anti-Israel policies that Biden is on now.

Since she served as first lady, Michelle Obama showed herself to be even more hostile towards Israel than her husband ...

Caroline Glick: rebuilding the Temple

The Israel lobby fix is in to get Trump elected in November. 🤥 🤥 🤥

Explained: The Israeli Extremists Who Want to Rebuild the Temple, and the Government Ministers Who Back Them | Haaretz - 24 April 2024 |

They dream of rebuilding the Temple, re-instituting animal sacrifices, and a Jewish religious monopoly over one of the world's most contentious, incendiary sites, the Temple Mount with the Islamic holy site, Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Once a fringe movement, its activists are now backed by Itamar Ben-Gvir and other far-right extremists in Netanyahu's government. This is the story of the Temple Movement.

Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire | Politico - 11 Jan 2017 |

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton's allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers.


Merkel, who has served as an election observer in Ukrainian presidential elections dating back to 1993, noted there's some irony in Ukraine and Russia taking opposite sides in the 2016 presidential race, given that past Ukrainian elections were widely viewed in Washington's foreign policy community as proxy wars between the U.S. and Russia.

"Now, it seems that a U.S. election may have been seen as a surrogate battle by those in Kiev and Moscow," Merkel said.

Joe Biden bombed during the debate. But who will ask him to step down? | The Guardian - 5 days ago |

In March 1968, President Lyndon Johnson abandoned his re-election bid, citing the "awesome duties of this office", partisan divisions in the country and "America's sons in the fields far away" in Vietnam. "I shall not seek, and will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president," Johnson said.


Jill Biden has reacted forcefully in the past against calls for her to persuade her husband to step down, including to taunts that she is "guilty of elder abuse" and is said to enjoy the trappings of White House prestige.

In Atlanta on Thursday, she led her husband off the stage and was heard to tell him: "Joe, you did such a great job! You answered every question, you knew all the facts!"

Others in Biden's inner circle who may have the ear of the president include Biden's younger sister, Valerie Biden Owens, who has played a key role throughout the president's political career; campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez; campaign chairwoman Jen O'Malley Dillon; campaign senior adviser Anita Dunn; and adviser Ron Klain.

Alongside them are senior Democrats, some of whom fear that Biden's weak re-election chances will drag down Democrat hopes to retain control of the Senate and retake Congress.

You did great Joe ... if only people knew 😎

First lady Jill Biden defends Joe Biden in new Vogue profile

First lady Jill Biden is fiercely defending her husband, President Joe Biden, days after a stumbling and potentially costly televised performance.

"If people knew what Joe's done ..." Jill Biden told Vogue. "If they knew all of that −I mean, the bridge is being built in their city and they don't know who did it. They don't know who's getting the lead out of their water. They don't know who's stopping the pipeline going through the parklands. They don't know."

"That's why I'm trying to be out there," she continued. "Why we're all trying. To say, `This is what we've achieved, and this is how it affects your life.'"

Investigative Journalists leave the office of The Intercept ...

This is an email I never thought I'd be sending

Today is another reminder that nothing is permanent and nothing is perfect. And that's ok: I'm leaving along with my longtime colleague Jeremy Scahill, and we're launching something new together. You're reading it right now. It's called Drop Site, and we'd love to have your support.

What we've also learned over the years is that timed and targeted investigative journalism can have major impact abroad - and virtually nobody else is doing it, certainly not doing it the way we are. In recent years, we exposed a coup plot by a Bolivian minister of defense that led to his indictment and, after he fled, to efforts to extradite him. The Intercept Brasil's reporting on the corrupt prosecution of Lula da Silva helped free him and return him to the presidency. In the face of furious State Department denials, we obtained documentary evidence proving the U.S. role in ousting Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan from power. We published never-before-seen evidence of India's foreign ministry plotting assassinations on U.S. soil. And we've been unafraid to take on the MSM lies and propaganda fueling Israel's mass slaughter of Palestinians. As Israel turns northward toward war with Lebanon, we're positioned to be a critical source on that conflict, too.

Could Kamala Harris Beat Donald Trump in November's Presidential Race?


However, Harris may struggle to reel in moderate Democrats and the independent voters who like Biden's centrist policies, some Democratic donors said. Both parties seek independents to help pull them over the finishing line in presidential elections.

"Her greatest weakness is that her public brand has been associated with the far left wing of the Democratic Party ... and the left wing of the Democratic party cannot win a national election," said Dmitri Mehlhorn, a fundraiser and adviser to LinkedIn co-founder and Democratic megadonor Reid Hoffman. "That is the challenge that she will have to overcome if she is the nominee."

Harris would take over money raised by the Biden campaign and inherit campaign infrastructure, a critical advantage with just four months before election day on Nov. 5.

But any Democratic campaign still needs to raise hundreds of millions of dollars more before November to be successful, strategists say. And there, Harris could be a liability.

"I can tell you we have a really tough time raising money for her" said a source at the Democratic National Committee.

Democrats and Big Tech Attack Social Democrats (Left)

Dmitri Mehlhorn: The Man Financing a Political Counterrevolution | Ryan Grim - The Intercept |

DM: [Laughs.] I'm not sure I'm at the center of it. My background: my parents met at U.C. Berkeley. My mom was a great-granddaughter of Jewish immigrants who had come to New York to flee the pogroms of late-1800s Russia and Ukraine. And she shows up in Los Angeles at UCLA., gets her graduate degree at UC Berkeley, and meets my father, who is a non-Jewish German war refugee who was bombed out of his home before he turned two, who eventually made his way out to California. And even though his aunts and uncles were members of the Nazi party, and thus had some culpability in slaughtering the other half of my family, when they met in Berkeley, they fell in love, and they had a child: me.

And because of that history and because of the way it was shared with me, I've been very alert my whole life to the potential threat of somebody like Trump. I believe his example is a very common phenomenon in human history. And so, when he came along in 2015, I became quite alarmed. At the time, I was an early-stage angel investor, investing in a variety of small technology and data startups. And I began working, to the extent that I could, to get others to share my fear about Mr. Trump. And when he actually won the election, I realized that I could not do anything else other than try to get him to not win another election. And when I say could not do anything else, I meant, literally, I've tried to concentrate on something else, I couldn't concentrate, because I had so much fear about what a second Trump term would do.

So, I became active in that, and through social networks was reengaged with my former college classmate, who I'd known lightly over the years -- Reid Hoffman -- who shared my views of Mr. Trump, but had a great deal -- a great deal -- more money to fight. And so, he and I partnered up, and we have been active in anti-fascist politics ever since.

LinkedIn co-founder's PAC may challenge Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush`| Fox Business |

Progressive lawmakers Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush could face primaries from a PAC funded by Reid Hoffman

A Democrat-aligned political action committee (PAC) largely funded by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman could fund primary challenges against progressive Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., who have sparked controversy with their criticism of Israel in the wake of Hamas' terror attack.

Dmitri Mehlhorn, Hoffman's longtime political adviser, reached out to the Mainstream Democrats PAC to gauge a potential primary challenge from more moderate candidates capable of defeating Tlaib and Bush in their deep blue districts. The news was first reported by CNBC, and Mehlhorn later confirmed his thinking to Forbes and Jewish Insider.

"One of the very, very small silver linings of this horrible moment is that it does modestly increase the likelihood that we can remove some of these members of Congress," Mehlhorn told Jewish Insider.

He told the outlet that like-minded donors have since reached out to him in support of the effort, saying that he believes there's "a winning electoral coalition, a large governing majority of Americans who want their leaders to be able to condemn violent atrocities and mass rape."
