According to a Thursday report in Al-Monitor, Biden State Department wonk Ned Price claimed at a press conference: “It is a historical fact that Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights after the 1967 war.” Price thus signaled once again that Biden’s handlers plan to take up the Obama administration’s betrayal of Israel and support for the Palestinian jihad in a big way. But the central claim is wrong: contrary to the propaganda that inundates the world every day, Israel did not occupy “Palestinian Territories” in 1967 or at any other time.
Price and his colleagues in the Biden State Department don’t know, or don’t want you to know, that the “West Bank” (that is, Judea and Samaria) and Gaza were part of the original post-World War I Mandate for Palestine, set aside for a Jewish national home. Not only that, but between 1949 and 1967, when they were under Jordanian and Egyptian rule, nothing was ever said about how they were occupied “Palestinian” territory; in fact, there was no mention made of the “Palestinians” at all, as they were not invented until the 1960s, as a rhetorical stick to beat Israel with. After the 1967 war, Israel was occupying land to which only Israel, among all the countries of the world, had any legal claim. Find out more about this in The Palestinian Delusion.
Palestinian spokesmen have again and again made it clear that the Qur’an and Islam in general, not quarrels over various patches of land or occupation or settlements, are what make the Israeli-Palestinian conflict intractable. A Qatari sheikh, Muhammad Al-Muraikhi, stated this plainly on Qatar TV back on January 9, 2009. “We do not treat the Jews as our enemies just because they occupied Palestine,” he explained, “or because they occupied a precious part of our Arab and Islamic world. We will treat the Jews as our enemies even if they return Palestine to us because they are infidels. They rejected Allah and His messengers.”
An Egyptian imam, Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub, declared eight days after that in a televised sermon that Muslim hatred of Jews had nothing to do with Israel and everything to do with the Qur’an:
If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels—not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: “The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are.” [Qur’an 9:30] It is Allah who said that they are infidels.
Your belief regarding the Jews should be, first, that they are infidels, and second, that they are enemies. They are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing. Allah said: “You shall find the strongest men in enmity to the disbelievers to be the Jews and the polytheists.” [Qur’an 5:82] Third, you must believe that the Jews will never stop fighting and killing us. They [fight] not for the sake of land and security, as they claim, but for the sake of their religion: “And they will not cease fighting you until they turn you back [from] your religion, if they can.” [Qur’an 2:217] This is it. We must believe that our fighting with the Jews is eternal, and it will not end until the final battle—and this is the fourth point. You must believe that we will fight, defeat, and annihilate them, until not a single Jew remains on the face of the Earth.
Ya’qoub’s peroration was just as chilling:
As for you Jews—the curse of Allah upon you. The curse of Allah upon you, whose ancestors were apes and pigs. You Jews have sown hatred in our hearts, and we have bequeathed it to our children and grandchildren. You will not survive as long as a single one of us remains.
Also on Egyptian television on the same day, January 17, 2009, two other Muslim clerics, Sheik Said Al-Afani and Sheik Muhammad Abd Al-Salam, reiterated that the war against Israel was all about Islamic imperatives. The Jews, said Al-Afani, “are the accursed people, who incurred the wrath of Allah. They are the offspring of snakes and vipers, the slayers of our Prophet Muhammad, whose death was a consequence of his being poisoned by a Jewish woman.”
Contradicting the accepted wisdom in the West, he continued: “Our hatred of them is purely on religious grounds, and not because of the pure, sacred land, which was blessed by Allah, or because of Gaza…not only because of Al-Aqsa and so on. We hate them, first and foremost, because of their enmity towards Allah, and because they slayed our prophets.”
Then Muhammad Abd Al-Salam added: “Let me clarify that it is our duty to hate them, as part of our faith.” To this Al-Afani readily agreed. Al-Salam explained: “People have become confused about this. Some think that it is a territorial or a national issue, or that it has to do with the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, but the issue is much broader—it is a matter of faith. We are obligated to hate them because they are a murderous people, and the enemies of all that is good and of Islam.”
On October 5, 2018, on Not a Neighbor, a program on official Palestinian Authority television, Sharia judge Muhannad Abu Rumi likewise denounced the idea that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about territory and could thus be subject to negotiations:
People could be deluded or think…that we have no way out with the Jews…. The liberation of this land is a matter of faith, which will happen despite everyone. The Jews leaving this land is a divine decree…. The war is not only over this strip of land, as you all know the Jews want everything and not just a part. They want to subjugate us, and that we be slaves to their command…
A week later, during a Friday sermon at the Islamic Center of South Florida, Imam Hasan Sabri offered a succinct encapsulation of the principle of “Drive them out from where they drove you out” (Qur’an 2:191): “If a land is occupied or plundered, it should be liberated from its occupiers and plunderers, even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims.”
Turning to Trump’s offer to the Palestinians, “the Deal of the Century,” Sabri ridiculed the very idea of negotiations: “Take the Palestinian cause, for example. It is not being plotted against with a deal they call ‘the Deal of the Century.’ Why do they call it a ‘deal’? Because whoever is involved in this treason is not a man of principles. These are peddlers, not men with a cause. All they want are positions and jobs. That is why for them, the cause is nothing but a deal, a matter of give and take. For them, it is nothing but a deal.”
To this, Sabri contrasted the “position of a believing Muslim about the Palestinian cause,” which he characterized in this way: “That Palestine in its entirety is Islamic land, and there is no difference between what was occupied in 1948 and 1967. There is no difference between this village or that village, this city or that city. All of it is Islamic waqf land that was occupied by force. The responsibility for it lies with the entire Islamic nation, and the [Palestinians] should benefit from this land. If a land is occupied or plundered, it should be liberated from the occupiers and plunderers, even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims. This is the ruling, and there is no room for discussion or concessions.”
Another imam told a Muslim audience in November 2018 that while the struggle against Israel is an Islamic cause, this is best kept hidden for public relations purposes. At a “Workshop for Palestine” hosted by American Muslims for Palestine at the Islamic Center of Union County, New Jersey (ICUCNJ), on November 17, 2018, ICUCNJ Imam Sa’id Elkasaby explained: “Although our cause is Islamic, when we market and present it to people, I believe that it should be presented as a ‘humanitarian cause.’ If I talk to Jews and tell them that my cause is Islamic, they’re out. It’s over. They won’t support me because they’re Jews and I’m a Muslim. The same is true when I tell a Christian that my cause is Islamic. When I tell him that my cause is humanitarian, it means that every human being must acknowledge that truth. I know that I have the right to Palestine, but I want to be supported by everybody—by the Muslims, the Christians, the Chinese, the Sikhs, and the nonreligious. They will all support my cause because all humans will support my cause. I am a human being. I have rights. I own a land. So I present this cause to people…. If we keep telling the Americans that our cause is Islamic, only the Muslims will support us. The non-Muslims will not support us. So I want to generalize the cause so everybody will sympathize with us.”
And here we are. “Palestinians” and their allies told Biden, Price, and the rest that their land was “occupied,” and that all that was involved was a simple land dispute, and they credulously believed. Mission accomplished. The Palestinians’ befuddled American benefactors will start writing checks shortly.
Proof the 2020 election was stolen by a cyber attack, nationwide, from the top of the ballot to the bottom. This was a crime against America. This is not about a political party and not only about the presidential election.
I hope some of your were able to tune in for Professor Richard Lindzen’s zoom lecture and Q&A on Wednesday. The sponsors, Clintel Foundation in Dublin, said they will re-record the lecture. If you want the link to the lecture, let me know and I will send you a link when I receive it.
As usual with his lectures, there are many take away quotes. This is one that will be immediately useful:
“Stop treating it [i.e. AGW…human-caused global warming/climate change] as a worthy opponent. Do not ascribe reasonableness to the other side. It is not reasonable, not true, not even plausible.”

All unions of government employees are redundant and wasteful. Government at all levels already has a negotiation mechanism, the ballot box. After 2020, most sentient humans agree that the ballot box is not working. The fix for a broken ballot box is definitely NOT handing off responsibility to an unelected and unaccountable union. The reason voting boxes are not working in addition to the obvious and provable fraud tactic is accountability for bread and butter issues such as who is teaching our kids and what are they being taught have been delegated to unions. Same for prisons. Same for police, etc. Unions build self sustaining bureaucracies. Government unions are an entire layer of deep state which is redundant to our existing, already excessive, very expensive and perpetually growing legislative bodies at all levels of government. Government unions remove your control over your life. You are already paying for government employees to perform union functions. Do not let your government delegate their responsibility to an unaccountable union. That would be stupid.
This simple graphic represents the net effect of the policies of the new world order globalists, including Covid-19 policies, green/sustainability/global warming energy policies, and open borders multiculturalism and illegal immigration policies. The U.S. and other countries have gone into decline following booming economies in 2019.
Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, the UN, the Club of Rome, Bill Gates, George Soros, The Counsel on Foreign Relations, The U.S. Congress, The Democrat Party, The European Union, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, The Muslim Brotherhood, the Chinese Communist Party are accomplishing their goal.
By now everyone knows that the global economy was suppressed in 2020 by Covid-19 policies. One result is human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions were reduced by estimates of 25% to 30% because use of fossil fuels for travel, energy for businesses, etc was dramatically reduced during 2020. If human CO2 is a statistically significant contributor to total CO2 atmospheric concentration, then we should be able to observe a significant decline in total CO2 concentration during 2020. Instead total CO2 has increased.
Since the late 1970’s, net global atmospheric CO2 concentration has been monitored by a network of labs coordinated by the Keeling lab run by NOAA on Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii (1). These data are publicly available in many formats which anyone can download and analyze. The graphic above is directly from their website with no modifications. Note there has been a continuation of the ongoing slope, the slowly increasing CO2 trend, between February 2020 and February 2021.
“A necessary condition for the theory of anthropogenic global warming is that there should be a close correlation between annual fluctuations of atmospheric CO2 and the annual rate of anthropogenic CO2 emissions.” (2) If human-produced CO2 is a statistically significant contributor to the trend of net global average CO2 concentration, then we must see a reversal of slope (change in sign) and decline in this graph and in the data. These data visually demonstrate scientific and statistical findings made years ago by many scientists (e.g. Salby, Munshi, Spencer) that the statistical signal of human produced CO2, primarily from burning fossil fuels, is not detectable – too small to reach statistical significance, too small to be detected with precision above the noise/variability in the trend of net global CO2 concentration. Other natural sources and phenomena adequately explain this many-decades-long trend in global CO2 concentration.(3)(4)
The continuing addition of fossil fuel CO2 emissions must be detectable (correlated with) a change in the slope of net global atmospheric CO2 concentration. The Mauna Loa data is sensitive enough to easily see the annual spring-summer seasonal changes due to increased photosynthesis, visible here as the sharks teeth in the trend line. This clearly indicates that the data are good enough to see changes in trend. Emissions from fossil fuels are clearly less that these seasonal CO2 changes due to photosynthesis. Yet, the UN IPCC, your government and its agencies and many others insist that fossil fuel produced CO2 emissions are the primary cause of the rising CO2 trend, which they claim is dangerous and human-caused and they trot out continuous catastrophes, fear mongering propaganda, scared children, the need for carbon taxes and the elimination of all fossil fuels. In these NOAA data and many other studies, we observe fossil fuel emissions are insignificant, trivially much too small to significantly affect climate. The theory of human-produced global warming (AGW) is falsified according to the scientific method.
A correlation does not prove that a cause and effect relationship exists. However, if a cause is theorized, and burning fossil fuels is claimed to be the cause, then there must be a correlation, or else the theory is falsified. The theory of anthropogenic global warming is again falsified by nature itself.
No correlation is detected, no perturbation of trend is detected, no change in second derivative is found to correlate with the known decline in fossil fuel emissions which occurred during 2020. This should be detectable in annual data. All of the CO2 on the planet moves into the atmosphere and back into the oceans, plants and soils, cycling more than once per year. The trend in CO2 slope continues through 2020 into 2021 when a correlation would have projected a change in sign of slope if not a steep decline. But instead CO2 increases. Therefore, CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels is not statistically significant with regard to the ongoing trend in net global CO2 concentration, nor with any climate variable which has a significant co-dependence with net global CO2 concentration, for example average global temperature, or “greening of the planet,” or radiative emissions from greenhouse gases, or climate forcing.
This is not a new finding or even surprising to those with open minds who have studied this for years. But this science is not reported in the news, nor in government publications, UN, academic labs funded by government and NGOs, Wall Street banks, The World Bank, NASA, NOAA, EPA, giant corporations, or globalist elites. There is a massive global fraud in play right in front of us. I have no doubt that these people will find a way to “adjust” these data to support their agenda.
* U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions decreased 2.8% (150 million metric tons) in 2019 and were close to 2017 levels.
* Energy‐related CO2 emissions in the United States decreased by 2.8% (150 million metric tons [MMmt]) from 5,281 MMmt in 2018 to 5,130 MMmt in 2019 (Figure 2).
* The overall carbon intensity (CO2/GDP) of the U.S. economy declined 4.9% in 2019. This decline resulted from a 3.0% decrease in energy intensity and a 2.0% decline in the carbon intensity (CO2/energy) of the energy consumed.
* Since 2007 energy-related CO2 emissions have declined eight out of 12 years.
* As indicated in Figure 1 and the related discussion, after the economic recovery from the recession, energy-related CO2 emissions began to diverge from population growth, and on average they began to decline. The year 2019 was typical of the declining years that average about -3.0%.

I am very sorry to point out that this is the result of identity politics and community organizers. Perhaps you believe you are liberal or progressive. But, this is where wokeism leads. It is racism by another name. America is regressing to the class-based social structure that most Americans fled in previous generations. It enables feudal fiduciary master/slave relationships and according to global elites who believe they know what is best, a class-based society is the optimum social structure. But of course few of them would say that in public. They use Newspeak instead. Inclusion equals exclusion, etc.
This is the return of aristocracy, Übermensch, fascism and global wars.
World renown vaccine specialist, Geert Vanden Bossche, gave a groundbreaking interview this week risking his reputation and his career by bravely speaking out against administration of #Covid19 vaccines. In what may be one of the most important stories ever covered by The Highwire, the vaccine developer shared his extreme concerns about these vaccines in particular and why we may be on track to creating a global immunity catastrophe.
His bio is presented in this video as well as an interview with him.
