Sublime Juan Cole calling Biden's $360mil pier "a Potemkin Village because of its lack of substantial substance"
"Biden was warned that high seas made his aid pier impractical, and with the arrogance of Washington, he ignored the warnings...CENTCOM maintains that what remains of the pier is still functional, I don’t know if that is really true"

Biden's pier = a total SNAFU

Fed prosecutors asked judge overseeing case against to bar TFG from public statements that “pose a significant, imminent, & foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents” participating in the prosecution.

The request to Judge Cannon follows false claim by Trump that FBI agents who searched his home in Aug 2022 were “authorized to shoot me” & “locked & loaded ready to take me out & put my family in danger”

“Last Dance At The Vampire Ball: West Searches For Answers To Its Demise”

by Simplicius in Simplicius’ Garden Of Knowledge on Substack @substack

“As the reality of the coming Russian victory over the combined NATO Leviathan has slowly dawned on the West, it has engendered a poignant shift in the increasingly high-pitched narrative. The comprador elite class has awakened to the fact that their global order is on the brink of dissolution, following Russia’s unclothing of their designs. The many decades of Gladio and other subversions are coming undone before our very eyes, as the dreams of a certain line of elite architects stretching back many generations are being washed away by the fitful birth of a new world.

Everywhere you turn, this elite moral panic is playing out front and center. As their industries die, their people gnash and seethe, and institutions flirt with collapse, the hoarse-voiced compradors clamber over each other to bleat out litanies of frantic warnings about saving themselves and their class”

President Joe directed top aides to develop plans to stem illegal migration months ago, & they are eyeing a presidential authority in USC § 212 (f), which would let the president unilaterally “suspend the entry” of specific groups of migrants whenever the number of attempted border crossings grew too great.

Election years are strange. The campaign sees as an issue, & are making it worse by refusing to pass IN ORDER TO KEEP IT AN ISSUE w/o a Democrat solution to campaign on to their uninformed electorate.

Biden’s policies are more humane, he doesn’t use family separation or detention concentration camps like among other things.

The International Criminal Court's recent request for an arrest warrant for Israeli officials is consistent with international law and precedent.
In 2010, an arrest warrant was issued for Sudanese President Al Bashir partly on the grounds of using starvation and denial of food and as a weapon of war, clear violations of the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute's "crimes against humanity" and "war crimes" categories.

Joe Biden is trying to help indebted Americans.

TFG promised oil execs to get rid of environmental protections if they donate a billion to his legal fund/political campaign.

No word from Republicans on how further tax cuts for corporations and multi-millionaires are not reckless wealth transfers. Republican support for debt bondage is full-throated, however.

Blinken says he wants to work with Congress to penalize International Criminal Court

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s comments were an early indication of the Biden administration’s openness to taking action against the Netherlands-based court for its application for arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. The court’s chief prosecutor Karim Khan also issued warrants for senior Hamas officials, including its leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar.

In a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on Tuesday afternoon, said he would “welcome” working with Sen. Lindsey Graham on “bipartisan” sanctions against the ICC.

“It’s clear Israel wants to do all it can to ensure civilian protection,” said at a White House reception marking Jewish American Heritage Month. “Let me be clear: What’s happening is not genocide.”
