“Antisemitic at their core”: Four House Dems blast progressive colleagues for rhetoric on Israel, Jews

The rift between progressives and establishment Democrats exploded today over the issue of Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric. Four House Democrats signed a letter to Joe Biden demanding more action to curtail a spike in hate crimes against Jews following the latest iteration of the Hamas war on Israel. The letter cites a number of reasons for the rise in attacks, but takes aim particularly at members of their own caucus for statements the four call “antisemitic at their core”:

“Displeasure” is certainly one word for it; another might be “disgust.” The letter doesn’t call out anyone by name, not even Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican clearly meant in the passage about equating mask mandates to the Holocaust. This passage doesn’t identify anyone by name or party either, but it’s very clearly aimed at members of The Squad and their allies in the progressive caucus:

We also reject comments from Members of Congress accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state” and committing “act[s] of terrorism.” These statements are antisemitic at their core and contribute to a climate that is hostile to many Jews. We must never forget that less than eighty years ago, within the lifetime of our parents and grandparents, six million people were murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust because they were Jews. Israel has long provided the Jewish people with a homeland in which they can be safe after facing long centuries of persecution.

No one can possibly mistake who is meant in this passage from Josh Gottheimer, Elaine Luria, Kathy Manning, and Dean Phillips. Nevertheless, Seth Mandel isn’t too impressed by this effort:

Yes, but the rift over The Squad’s hateful rhetoric is now out in the open, at least. This comes at a very awkward time for Nancy Pelosi, who had probably hoped that Taylor Greene had provided enough of a distraction to keep the media at bay. This open letter undoes at least some of that strategy, although just how much of it is anyone’s guess. The media probably won’t rush to cover this accusation, in general anyway, although some outlets have been reporting on this rift for a while. For instance, the New York Post reported almost a week ago that Squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had intimidated pro-Israel Democrats into silence:

Jewish activists accused powerful Democrats in the New York congressional delegation of cowering to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other leftist House members of the “Squad” by failing to forcefully stand up for Israel during its fight with Hamas in the Gaza strip.

“Chuck Schumer? Who?,” a frustrated Michael Nussbaum, president of the Queens Council of Jewish Organizations, said sarcastically of the powerful Senate majority leader who represents New York.

“I’m surprised and disappointed. Members of the New York congressional delegation who have a lot of sway have not spoken out forcefully to defend Israel, and they have not denounced AOC or corrected her,” said Nussbaum. …

Nussbaum and other activists are seething that the New York pols who claim to be pro-Israel have been quiet and meek, giving Israel critics like AOC a leg up in the war of public opinion.

He argued they’re afraid of repercussions from AOC and the left if they speak up.

“A lot of Democrats are afraid of the AOC contingent. They’re sacrificing their principles to avoid primaries,” Nussbaum said.

Nussbaum finally got his wish today with this letter, even if it doesn’t name AOC specifically. We’ll see how much interest the media has in a Democratic civil war when it erupts, even as politely as this.


Jews Are Literally Being Singled Out And Attacked On The Streets

Jews Are Literally Being Singled Out And Attacked On The Streets

9:10 PM ET

A Jewish man was kicked in the back in Germany as three individuals walked by, barely batting an eye. Two Jewish boys were also accosted while walking down a New York City street. Anti-Semitism is in full swing with little acknowledgement from the media, politicians and so-called “Social Justice arriors.”

The New York Police Department (NYPD) was looking for three suspects Saturday regarding two anti-Semitic incidents in Brooklyn, according to NBC 4 New York. In one incident three men allegedly jumped out of a car in Borough Park and made anti-Semitic comments toward four Jews who were observing Shabbat. The group then banged on a synagogue door and kicked in a mirror on a car parked outside before fleeing in a car, according to the report.

The Department of Justice announcedSaturday that a Brooklyn man, Ali Alaheri, was charged for allegedly setting fire to a Yeshiva and a synagogue on May 19.The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) were called to investigate a possible hate crime on May 17 after video footage appeared to show an Orthodox Jewish man running for his life as two cars chased him through a parking lot.One video was taken from the point of view of one of the pro-Palestinian protesters, with the caption “This Zionist flipped us off for supporting Palestine. We went after him. Y’all some big ass p**sys bitches. You can run but you can’t hide.”

The LAPD responded to another call just one day later regarding an “assault with a deadly weapon” after Jewish diners were allegedly attacked by a pro-Palestinian mob.

Footage shows two individuals eating outside of Sushi Fumi in downtown Los Angeles when a group of pro-Palestinian individuals drive by and began shouting at the diners .

Subsequent video shows the pro-Palestinian individuals attacking the two Jews on the sidewalk before one of the victims tries to fight back. The unidentified victim was treated at a local hospital, the LAPD confirmed to the Daily Caller.

A 29-year-old Jewish man was beat down in the middle of Times Square Thursday. Videos posted to Twitter show a group of pro-Palestinian individuals beating the man, later identified as Joey Borgen, as bystanders try to help.

“He was going to a pro-Israel rally and wearing his yarmulke and he got ambushed,” Barry Borgen, Joey’s father, told the Daily Caller. “They climbed out of a van and basically pounded him into the street.”

“It’s open season on Jews,” Borgen added. (RELATED: Schumer, Pelosi Slow To Condemn Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes)

During another incident, pro-Palestinian protesters ripped an Israeli flag out of the hands of a pro-Israel activist before appearing to punch the victim in the stomach as he attempted to retrieve his flag.

Blocks away in the Diamond District, pro-Palestinian protesters were seen harassing Jews, screaming “Fuck you, you Zionists.”

Another video captured pro-Palestinian individuals throwing fireworks at Jews.

Meanwhile, a Jewish family was assaulted in South Florida while walking home from synagogue. A group of men drove by the family screaming things like “free Palestine, die Jew, F you Jew, I’m gonna rape your wife,” before an armed bystander stepped in and intervened, according to CBS 12.

Another video shows an Orthodox Jewish man standing on the street in Germany when a man walks up to him and kicks him in the back as at least three bystanders just walk past.

In another incident in Germany a 41-year-old Jewish man walked past three men before he was allegedly punched in the face and verbally assaulted, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile police in Illinois were investigating reports of vandalism at a synagogue last Sunday after the Persian Hebrew Congregation was left with a smashed window and a pro-Palestine flag and sign were left outside, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) saidanti-Semitic hate crime reports were up to 193 reports from 131 the week prior. Between May 7 and May 14 the group said there were more than 17,000 tweets using some variation of “Hitler was right.”

So why the spike in anti-Semitic crimes?

Jonathon Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL, said the surge in anti-Semitism followed from the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

“As the violence between Israel and Hamas continues to escalate, we are witnessing a dangerous and drastic surge in anti-Jewish hate. We are tracking acts of harassment, vandalism and violence as well as a torrent of online abuse.”

The U.S., and the entire world has adopted a numbness to anti-Semitism and an indifference towards hate crimes against Jews has become blatantly obvious over the past several days.

President Joe Biden waited days before condemning the nationwide attacks against Jews.

“The recent attacks on the Jewish community are despicable, and they must stop,” Biden tweeted Monday. “I condemn this hateful behavior at home and abroad – it’s up to all of us to give hate no safe harbor.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also waited until Monday to condemn the hate crimes while Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer put out a single, brief tweet Friday, before again condemning the anti-Semitic hate crimes Monday.

The silence has been deafening, especially when you take into account hate crime data.

The FBI’s 2018 report Jewish Americans were 2.7 times more likely than black Americans to be the victim of a hate crime in 2018 and twice as more likely than a Muslim when data is adjusted for population size, according to AEI.

The trend has remained constant for hate crimes. Yet, so-called “Social Justice Warriors” have spent the past year protesting and rioting to show solidarity with black lives.

But with the recent documented spike in anti-Semitic hate crimes, no cities have seen wide-spread protests or riots; no cities have been burnt down, no towns were destroyed. In fact, few companies have come out in solidarity with the Jewish community.

Bret Stephens published an op-ed in The New York Times (NYT) that raises this as a complaint.

“If there’s been a massive online campaign of progressive ally ship with Jews, I’ve missed it. If corporate executives have sent out workplace memos expressing concern for the safety of Jewish employees, I’ve missed it. If academic associations have issues public letters denouncing the use of anti-Semitic tropes by pro-Palestinian activists, I’ve missed them.”

“It’s a curious silence. In the land of inclusiveness, Jews are denied inclusion.”

The rise in anti-Semitic crimes over the past several days coincides with violence in Israel and Gaza. Progressives, including politicians on the left, have fueled the fire with their anti-Israel rhetoric.

Actor Mark Ruffalo walked back an earlier comment in which he claimed in “hyperbole” that Israel was committing a “genocide.”

“I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing ‘genocide’. It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.”

Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders even called for everyone to “tone down the rhetoric” on Sunday after CBS News’ John Dickerson noted “there are a number of liberals who use the word ‘apartheid’ to describe Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians.”

Progressives won’t speak up against the attacks because they think if they speak up against it they’re also speaking against anti-Zionism and they don’t want to look “pro-Zionist.”

An opinion piece published in The New York Times claimed the “flagrant public assaults on Jews – sometimes in broad daylight– [is] motivated by anti-Zionism.”

But the U.S., is thousands of miles away from Israel. Attacking Jews has nothing to do with anti-Zionism and everything to do with anti-Semitism.

Conflating the two is dangerous, but not nearly as dangerous as remaining silent on the two.Tags : anti semitismhate crimejewish

GOP Calls for Fauci to be Fired after His Covid-19 Flip Flops Statement

Personally I would think a REAL INVESTIGATION would take place because he obviously knew exactly what was going on! To make light of and deny using “Gain of Function” is a disgrace… Although totally expected! Especially from Fauci!

I’m sure they will protect him in every way possible because after all… They have to ensure that Obamas involvement doesn’t come crashing down too. The truth is already out so they may just be cruzing down the road of self destruction. We shall see!


OPERATION ANGELS ENVY: Historic Drug Busts In DC Area, 7 States Linked To Sinaloa Cartel, DEA Says

By B911 – May 26, 202107

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, leaders from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, and the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office join Jarod Forget, Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the DEA’s Washington Division, to announce the results of Operation Angels Envy.

Operation Angels Envy involved a set of multi-year investigations, identifying large networks of suppliers and distributors in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, working for a dangerous transnational drug trafficking organization with direct ties to the Sinaloa Cartel. The operation uncovered and dismantled seven, violent, drug trafficking organization cells in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area, and resulted in 33 high-level individuals charged, hundreds of pounds of deadly drugs being taken off the streets, $5.4 million in U.S. currency, 32 rifles, 81 handguns, and other assets seized.

“This is good work. This is important work,” SAC Forget said at the press conference today. “All of us want and deserve safe neighborhoods. We need to act together to stop and hold those accountable who are bringing drugs and violence into our neighborhoods, and threatening our family’s safety and wellbeing, for their own, selfish gains. I am happy to say, together, we did that today.”

“Much like these drugs having a far-reaching impact in our country, I am proud to say the work of our detectives in Loudoun County in combination with other DEA Task Force members had an even further impact on the operations of the Sinaloa Cartel,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. “Our law enforcement community must continue to fight this scourge and protect our citizens, and I am glad that we have such dedicated partners in our law enforcement profession that put their lives on the line every day to do just that,” Sheriff Chapman added.

Since May 2017, investigations under Operation Angels Envy led to the identification and takedown of seven independent, violent drug trafficking organizations operating in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area; their Los Angeles-based transportation network, which used tractor-trailers and shipping crates to move ton quantities of methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, and other drugs across the country; and their Sinaloa Cartel supply cell. These drug trafficking organizations would then transfer profits and trafficked firearms back to the Sinaloa Cartel. Investigations into the takedown of the transportation network and supply cell led to the identification and takedown of other violent drug trafficking organizations in California, Missouri, Ohio, New England, and New York.

Operation Angels Envy culminated in one of the largest cumulative takedowns in the area – with 33 individuals charged; seizure totals of 473 pounds of methamphetamine, 42 kilograms of fentanyl (enough to potentially cause over 21 million people to die of an overdose – more than the population of D.C., Maryland, Virginia, combined), nine kilograms of heroin, 129 kilograms of cocaine, 5,100 pounds of other drugs, over $5.3 million in drug proceeds, 114 firearms (many of which were assault-style weapons); and over $700,000 in jewelry and vehicles.about:blank

SAC, Jarod Forget; Acting U.S. Attorney, Raj Parekh; and Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman, made the announcement at a press conference at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alexandria, Va., today.

SAC Forget would like to thank the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office; Fairfax County Police Department; Arlington Police Department; Alexandria Police Department; Virginia State Police; Vienna Police Department; Homeland Security Investigations, San Diego; U.S. Postal Service Inspection Service; Washington DC, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, Washington D.C.; DEA Los Angeles Division; DEA New England Division; DEA Miami Division; DEA Dayton Resident Office; DEA Mexico Country Office; and the DEA Special Operations Division for their work in Operation Angels Envy investigations. And a special thank you to the Baltimore/ Washington HIDTA and OCDETF for their assistance. SAC Forget would also like to thank the U.S. Attorney’s Office for prosecuting the cases.

Guess who is so determined to get everyone in the world “poked” for the you know what… that it is now censoring all content that it deems as promoting “vaccine hesitancy”

Facebook is so determined to get everyone in the world “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) that it is now censoring all content that it deems as promoting “vaccine hesitancy” (VH).

Two whistleblowers recently came forward to tell their stories to Project Veritas, revealing that Facebook’s goal is to “drastically reduce user exposure” to comments and posts that question the “safety and efficacy” of Chinese Virus injections.

Facebook also launched an internal program to force a “decrease in other engagement on VH comments including create, likes, reports [and] replies.”

According to one of the whistleblowers, Facebook uses a tiered system to determine which content should be censored or buried, and to what degree. Anything categorized as “shocking stories,” even if they describe true events that “raise safety concerns” about the injections, is automatically demoted on Facebook.

“True events or facts” that cast a “negative” light on Wuhan Flu shots are considered by Facebook to be “misinformation” and are automatically hidden from view, the whistleblower explained.

Even if the information is authentic, verifiable, and could help someone avoid vaccine-induced injury or death, Facebook will no longer allow users to see it.

“They’re trying to control this content before it even makes it onto your page before you even see it,” the other Facebook insider added. “If I lose my job, it’s like, what do I do? But that’s less of a concern to me.”

Be sure to watch the full Project Veritas exposé on Facebook’s censorship of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) truth below:

There is no more free speech on Facebook

A leaked document outlining the “experimental launch” of the program explains how Facebook tested it out before the official launch to determine whether or not it was capable enough of capturing content for rapid disposal.

The document states that the experiment only applied to “comments that have also been created beneath vaccine-related posts,” which the social media giant has already been flagging with “disinformation” overlays for at least the past year.

Because many Facebook users are ignoring these overlays by continuing to share and comment on posts with truthful information about the dangers and ineffectiveness of Chinese Virus injections, the Mark Zuckerberg empire is upping the ante with this new targeted program against user comments.

“Comments are a major surface relevant to our B2V efforts,” the document further explains about the rationale behind the program.

“We estimate that the prevalence of VH comments in Authoritative Health Pages is 25.3% and for other pages 19.42%. Now that the v1 Vaccine Hesitancy classifier has been cleared for this usecase, reducing the visibility of these comments represents another significant opportunity for us to remove barriers to vaccination that users on the platform may potentially encounter.”

In essence, Facebook is still allowing its users to have “free speech” concerning Wuhan Flu shots. The caveat is that nobody else will get to see that free speech because Facebook is now secretly censoring it before others have the chance to see it.

“People aren’t allowed to have a voice, and yet Facebook touts itself with promoting people’s opportunity to have a voice,” one of the whistleblowers lamented.

Remember when Facebook also tampered with the 2020 election?

We saw much the same behavior from Facebook during the 2020 election cycle. Zuckerberg and his minions were caught censoring posts about election fraud and vote tampering, making it appear as though Joe Biden and Kamala Harris legitimately won – which they did not.

At the same time, Facebook prioritized content on its platform that perpetuated the lie that Biden and Harris won, and that there is “no evidence” that the 2020 election was unfairly stacked against Donald Trump.

Now that the election scandal has moved on and the media and government are focused on Chinese Virus injections, Facebook is once again doing its part to spread propaganda, censor free speech, and steer the “hive mind” of its user base into getting jabbed.

“It’s amazing how Facebook feels that they must patrol people’s legitimate commentary about vaccines in order to try and coerce more people into get vaccinated, which is something I don’t understand,” reports The Right Scoop.

“What’s hypocritical about this is that I remember when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was having internal discussions at Facebook about the vaccines actually changing people’s DNA / RNA and suggesting skepticism about that last year. But now if you want to have such discussions, CENSORSHIP FOR YOU while free speech for him. Yeah, makes sense.”

Be sure to listen to the full roughly 22-minute Project Veritas episode above to get the full scoop on Facebook’s pro-vaccine, anti-free speech agenda. This is an important subject that deserves critical attention, especially since these jabs are killing people at an astounding rate.

Facebook Executive BRAGS About Increased Censorship of So-Called ‘Hate Speech’ | Newsbusters

Facebook recently took the opportunity in a new report to brag about how much content it has censored.

Braggers ALWAYS talk too much! Can’t wait for this to backfire! You know it will! It always does!

Facebook Executive BRAGS About Increased Censorship of So-Called ‘Hate Speech’

May 24th, 2021 3:24 PM

Facebook recently took the opportunity in a new report to brag about how much content it has censored.

The Big Tech company released its quarterly Community Standards Enforcement Report. Facebook VP of Integrity Guy Rosen noted in the report that in the first Quarter (Q1), which included January through March of 2021, that so-called “hate speech” on the platform “continues to decrease.” 

The report noted that content it decided was “hate speech” constituted “0.05-0.06%, or 5 to 6 views per 10,000 views.” According to a graph provided in the blog post, the “[p]revalence of hate speech violations” for “Jul-Sep 2020” was “0.10%-0.11%,” which would yield approximately a 50 percent decrease compared to Q1 of 2021.

France’s Bernard Arnault Becomes the World’s Richest Person

France’s Bernard Arnault Becomes the World’s Richest Person

The Briefing

  • French billionaire, Bernard Arnault, became the world’s richest person with a net worth surpassing $186B
  • Arnault, whose fortunes are largely tied to luxury conglomerate LVMH, has seen a staggering 145% increase in his net worth since the beginning of the pandemic

France’s Bernard Arnault Becomes the World’s Richest Person

This week, French billionaire, Bernard Arnault, became the world’s richest person.

Arnault’s rise into top spot is particularly noteworthy since American billionaires – particularly in the technology sector – have dominated the world’s richest people ranking for a number of years. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos remains neck-and-neck with Arnault, with Elon Musk still within striking distance.RankNameCountryNet Worth (May 24, 2021)1Bernard Arnault France$186.3 billion2Jeff Bezos United States$186.0 billion3Elon Musk United States$147.3 billion

Jeff Bezos began 2021 in top spot, but has been challenged by both Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault. The former took a hit after Tesla’s stock began to cool off after hitting a record high in Q1 2021.

Arnault’s name may be new to some, but he has been on of the top five richest people globally since 2018, and has been a billionaire for well over a decade. The French tycoon got his start in the fashion space by parlaying a fortune made in construction into the purchase of Christian Dior in 1985.

Vive la France

Bernard Arnault oversees an empire that includes many iconic French luxury brands, including; Louis Vuitton, Dom Pérignon, and Christian Dior. His luxury group, LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), also spans retail and hospitality industries.

It may be surprising that LVMH is thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the company has been buoyed by strong sales in Asia – especially China.

In January 2021, LVMH completed a deal for Tiffany & Co for nearly $16 billion, in what is possibly the largest luxury brand acquisition in history.
