Soros-funded Climate Change Activist Group 'Sunrise Movement' Backs Palestinians Against Israel

The left-wing climate change activist group known as the Sunrise Movement tweeted its support for the Palestinians against Israel on Tuesday, as hundreds of rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists rained down on Israel’s major cities. The well-funded group, backed in part by left-wing billionaire George Soros, said nothing about Palestinian terror attacks on Israeli civilians, mob violence against Jews in Israel, or environmental damage caused by fires set by Palestinian incendiary balloons. Instead, the Sunrise Movement tweeted a thread declaring its “solidarity with Palestinians,” adding: “Climate justice cannot exist without collective liberation, and collective liberation is only reached when people are freed from colonial and imperial violence worldwide.” We’re in solidarity with Palestinians. Climate justice cannot exist without collective liberation, and collective liberation is only reached when people are freed from colonial and imperial violence worldwide. — Sunrise Movement (@sunrisemvmt) May 12, 2021 Our government must stop funding state-sponsored violence at home and globally. We have to ask ourselves: why does the administration give $1.3 billion more to the Israeli military than international climate programs?https://t.co/atc5r3QSJU — Sunrise Movement (@sunrisemvmt) May 12, 2021 The struggles Palestinians face are deeply tied to racial and housing justice,

FACT CHECK: Biden Falsely Claims Coronavirus Deaths Exceed War, 9/11 Deaths

CLAIM: More Americans have died of COVID-19 “than in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam war and 9/11 combined.” VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. The total number of deaths in those conflicts, including non-combat deaths, is higher. In his address to the nation from the White House on the one-year anniversary of the coronavirus shutdowns, President Joe Biden claimed: I’ve told you before, I carry a card in my pocket with the number of Americans who have died from COVID to date. It’s on the back of my schedule. As of now, total deaths in America, 527,726. That’s more deaths than in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam war and 9/11 combined. They were husbands, wives, sons, and daughters, grandparents, friends, neighbors, young and old. While the number of coronavirus deaths is to be mourned, Biden’s figures are simply incorrect. Several mainstream media organizations debunked Biden’s claim. Newsweek, for example, noted: As noted by the Congressional Research Service dataset, service deaths for the three wars combined—including fatalities not directly from battle—totals to 580,135. Adding 9/11 terror attack deaths brings the total to 583,112—more than COVID deaths. World War I: 116,516 World War II: 405,399 Vietnam: 58,220

Justice Amy Coney Barrett Will Face Cases on Voting, Obamacare, Apportionment, Mueller Report

Newly-confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett will face several important cases upon taking her seat at the Supreme Court. In the long term, she could have a profound influence on American jurisprudence, reinforcing originalism and textualism, and perhaps revisiting controversial precedents such as Roe v. Wade. First, Justice Barrett will face these important cases: Elections: Already, the Supreme Court has begun to consider cases involving the 2020 elections. Moments before Barrett was confirmed by the Senate, it sided with Republicans in blocking a lower court’s decision to extend the deadline for the receipt of absentee ballots in the state by six days beyond Election Day. At least one decision deadlocked 4-4; no longer. Obamacare: On November 10, the Supreme Court will hear Texas v. California. The case will consider several different issues, including whether the individual mandate of Obamacare is unconstitutional once its value has been set to zero by Congress, and whether the entire law must be overturned as a result (whether the mandate is “severable”). It is unlikely, contrary to Democrats’ claims, that the Affordable Care Act will be overturned, but theoretically the Court could do so. Apportionment: On November 30, the Court will hear Trump v. New York, a challenge brought by Democrat-governed

LISTEN: Nancy Pelosi Says 'We Can Impeach' Trump 'Every Day of the Week for Anything He Does'

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told Kara Swisher of the New York Times in an interview released Monday that the House of Representatives can impeach President Donald Trump “every day of the week for anything he does.” Swisher, a tech journalist with left-wing views, was pushing Pelosi to commit to doing more to fight back against President Trump, the Republican, and the conservative agenda. The following exchange ensued: Swisher: All right, but I’m going to press you one more time. What is your power to do this? I get the election, but you can get up more. You can speak out more. You can do more impeachments, things like that. Do you have enough power? Pelosi: Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does. In fact, for — Swisher: Why not? Nancy Pelosi: — 200,000 people dying. Well, because look, the American people want to know what we’re doing that affects them directly. Swisher: OK. Republicans published a brief clip of that conversation: [embedded content] The Constitution does not say a president can be impeached for “anything.” Rather, it says: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the

Pollak: Democrats Threatened to Pack the Court Long Before Ginsburg's Death

Democrats are threatening to abolish the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court if President Donald Trump and the Senate Republicans confirm a replacement for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away on Friday. Some are also threatening to add the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico as states — which means adding four Democrat seats to the Senate — in response. Dems aren’t powerless. They can: 1. Abolish filibuster. 2. Statehood for DC, PR. 3. Increase # of federal judges. 4. Add 3 Justices to #SCOTUS. My @NewYorker columnhttps://t.co/wmJ88Vxvkt — Jeffrey Toobin (@JeffreyToobin) September 19, 2020 But Democrats have been threatening to do these things for months — long before Ginsburg’s passing. The idea of packing the Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices and filling the new positions with liberals has been floating around within the Democratic Party since Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Court, creating a new 5-4 conservative majority. In May 2019, the Boston Globe reported that then-South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who was running for president, was backing a version of that plan in which the current justices would choose the new ones. Not everyone supported the idea. Sen. Bernie

Joe Biden: Trump 'Accidentally' Making Peace Between Israel and Arab States

Former Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged Thursday that President Donald Trump is making peace between Israel and several Arab states, but he said that he was doing so “accidentally.” “I think Trump is going to accidentally do something positive here, in terms of this issue of … other Arab states” making peace and establishing normal relations with Israel, Biden told a fundraiser hosted by the far-left J Street organization, as quoted by the Times of Israel. As Breitbart News noted Friday, Biden’s main argument was reportedly that Trump had “put Israel in danger,” despite the peace agreements, because he had withdrawn from the Iran nuclear deal, and the Iranian regime was enriching uranium. However, an intelligence trove seized by Israel and revealed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2018 showed that Iran had never intended to suspend its nuclear program. The deal allowed it to resume its work after roughly a decade. Democrats struggled Friday to downplay the news that the Trump administration had brokered yet another peace agreement between Israel and an Arab nation — in this case, Bahrain. It was only the latest success, as Breitbart News noted: First there was the United Arab Emirates (UAE),

Riots in Seattle, L.A.; Violence in Oregon; Standoff Ends Peacefully in Rochester

Violent protests continued on Labor Day, as police dispersed riots in several cities and clashes between left- and right-wing groups erupted in Salem, Oregon. In Los Angeles, police dispersed a crowd with peppers balls and flash bangs, as demonstrations continued over the shooting death last Monday of Dijon Kizzee by L.A. County sheriff’s deputies. Kizzee was armed during the confrontation, police said.

Atlantic Reporter Does Not Deny Coordinating Question with Joe Biden Campaign

Edward-Isaac Dovere, a reporter for The Atlantic, did not deny coordinating a question about Trump’s “soul” with Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, which selected him to ask the first question during a rare press availability on Friday. The Atlantic is the publication that published a story Thursday evening claiming that President Donald Trump had referred to Americans who died in the First World War as “losers” and “suckers.” The story was based on four anonymous sources. It has since been rejected or refuted by nearly a dozen on-the-record sources, including some Trump critics, like John Bolton. Biden led a press conference on the economy by commenting angrily on the story, “if these statements [by Trump] are true.” After his remarks, Biden turned to his staff, who selected Dovere to ask the first question. He asked: “When you hear these remarks — ‘suckers,’ ‘losers,’ recoiling from amputees — what does it tell you about president Trump’s soul, and the life he leads?” Biden took the question as a cue to launch another attack on the president. Dovere faced criticism from the Trump campaign, and defended himself on Twitter: Thanks for watching. https://t.co/ecVkqViixz — Edward-Isaac Dovere (@IsaacDovere) September 4, 2020 Who

Marianne Williamson Rips Joe Biden Campaign: 'Platitudes but No Substance and No Policy'

Former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson ripped Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden on Sunday, calling his campaign full of “platitudes but no substance and no policy.” Williamson, who has built a successful career as an author and spiritual guru, was commenting on the similarity between Biden’s Democratic National Convention acceptance speech earlier this month and the title of one of her books, The Politics of Love. “Healing the Soul of America” 1997, “A Return to Love” 1992 referencing darkness & light, and “A Politics of Love” 2019 a treasure trove for @JoeBiden in 2020 ❤️ pic.twitter.com/xoCpH89GVI — ??Belinda???AL Native (@BelindafromAL) August 21, 2020 In his speech, Biden said that the current moment “calls for hope and light and love. Hope for our futures, light to see our way forward, and love for one another.” Williamson acknowledged the link between Biden’s address and her book, but slammed Biden for failing to describe any policy specifics: .@JoeBiden I appreciate you used my book title, but you need to actually read the book. Your campaign is everything people said that I was but I actually wasn’t: platitudes but no substance and no policy. Enough with talk about hope and love:
