Continuous Assaults
As of Monday morning, the recent attacks marked at least 52 against US and coalition forces since October 17 — 24 attacks in Iraq, and 28 times in Syria. At least 56 troops have been injured in the attacks by Iranian-backed groups — at least 25 have sustained traumatic brain injuries, while other injuries have been minor, Pentagon officials have said.

New attacks have taken place by Iranian backed terrorists since the latest US retaliatory strikes on Sunday. That brings the number of attacks on US bases to 52 since mid-October. There were 4 attacks which came after the latest US strikes on Sunday. Thus far Joe Biden saying "don't" hasn't really registered with the regime in Iran.

On the Israeli front Israeli forces have pushed further into Gaza. Yesterday they managed to capture the Parliament building in Gaza, raising the Israeli flag over it. Fighting is now centered around Al-Shifa Hospital, where Hamas has a command center built underneath it with connecting tunnels. Meanwhile Hezbollah has been launching attacks on the northern front. Israeli jets have struck key Hezbollah targets in Lebanon in past few days. Joe Biden continues to ask for Israel to use caution in Gaza, while stopping short of calling for the cease fire that Hamas wants so desperately right now.

Speaking of our leader, he has what some are calling "a high stakes" meeting coming up with Chairman Xi at the APEC summit. Normally a strong leader would have some major issues to discuss with Xi, such as Taiwan, trade and fentanyl coming across the US southern border. None of that is expected from our alternative to Trump leader. Nope! Many expect Joe to talk "climate change" and how the US will lead the way by restricting its own oil production as China keeps turning out new coal plants. The Governor of California is already preparing for the event by cleaning up San Fransisco's dirty, filthy homeless infested streets, so the world might think that America is still clean and safe.


Yesterday the Supreme Court announced that it had adopted its first code of ethics. Democrats didn't like it. It wasn't draconian enough.


Last but not least the new House Speaker has a spending plan. It is basically a two-tiered plan that funds part of the government – including public health, military construction, housing, transportation, agriculture and energy programs until Jan. 19, and the rest would be funded through Feb. 2. It drew praise from Senate leader Schumer, who was most likely delighted that there were no Republican cuts. On the other hand, Johnson is now in the same position McCarthy was in. He is likely to get the Bill passed with House democrats who will immediately stab him in the back if right wing Republican choose to vacate the chair again.


The March for Israel is scheduled for today in DC.

Good morning.

The people of San Fransisco must be wondering why their streets weren't cleaned up years ago. They may not know that it is only temporary and let us never forget that homeless people have rights.

I couldnt care less what Dershowitz thinks. He disgraced himself permanently by defending Trump. 

John Solomon is a right wing conspiracy theorist.

Doesn't anyone on the right give 'credit' to who it is due? Dershowitz's babbling occured on the The Rich Zeoli Show at first and then leaped over to Maria's nonsense on FOX.

oh dear. this is what a former trump loyalist has stated in a new book by jonathan karl...

"He lacks any shred of human decency, humility or caring," the former White House official told Karl. "He is morally bankrupt, breathtakingly dishonest, lethally incompetent, and stunningly ignorant of virtually anything related to governing , history , geography , human events or world affairs. He is a traitor and a malignancy in the nation, and represents a clear and present danger to our democracy, and the rule of law."  - anonymous former trump loyalist

he was smart to insist on anonymity based upon the past activities of the unhinged trump cult.

LOL. We have pictures of Trump smiling in anticipation of Putins arrival at international conference event.  We have pictures of Trump taking part in an Arabian sword ceremony, does that means he wants to cut infidels heads off ?

For all you know, Trump was thinking "what a great guy".

When Schumer was dancing with Letitia James I doubt they were thinking about Trump.

And we dont know what Chuck Schumer and Letitia James were thinking when they were "dancing" together, do we?  According to Vic they were plotting against trump.

Outside of the context of them plotting against Trump, what relevance does a picture of Schumer and James dancing at a parade have to do with anything ? 

I know exactly what Vic thinks. [removed]

The March for Israel is scheduled for today in DC.

There were approximately 300,000 pro-Israel, pro-USA people who peacefully gathered on Tuesday, November 14.

Such a difference from what the Tik Tok mis-informed, pro-Hamas, often violent, left-wing thugs have exhibited in US cities/campuses and around the world since Oct. 7.
