As Turkey gears up for Syria, Iraq invasion, can the US stop them? – analysis

Turkey is gearing up for a new invasion of Syria and possibly expanded campaigns in Iraq, claiming it is a fight against terrorism. A recent bombing in Ankara was blamed on Kurdish groups in Syria, but it appears Ankara arrested a perpetrator who is not linked to any Kurdish group.

Ankara’s threats are not new. It has been threatening and carrying out invasions of Syria, often targeting Kurdish areas, routinely since 2016. Turkey’s policy in Syria is not just about attacking Kurds; it is also about reducing the US’s role in Syria.

That means Ankara’s real conflict is partly with the US and that Washington is the only powerful country that might reasonably prevent another Turkish invasion. History shows Ankara has been demanding to invade and destroy Kurdish areas of Syria since 2016, and the US generally has been able to slow down or prevent these invasions. Source: Jerusalem Post

Detransitioner to ‘Hold the Adults…Accountable’: Announces Plan to Sue Hospital

The trans movement continues its push to indoctrinate and mutilate children with the help of doctors that see an opportunity to line their pockets with the money of confused and misled children.

Corrupt medical practitioners who profit from mutilating gender dysphoric patients may, however, be in for a rude awakening now that victims of this foul practice are beginning to demand justice.

Chloe Cole is one such victim that is seeking punitive damages from the doctors and affiliated medical groups that convinced her to undergo irreversible transitional surgeries and damaging hormonal therapy. Source: Western Journal

‘Will Not Be Silent on the Truth’: Florida Just Found Out What the Government Does Not Want You to Know About the Vaccine

Biden administration officials must have been absolutely apoplectic following Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo’s recommendation against mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for men aged 18 to 39.

The Florida Department of Health announced Ladapo’s new guidance regarding COVID-19 mRNA vaccines in a late Friday news release. The release stated said the department had “conducted an analysis through a self-controlled case series … [and] found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.”

The COVID-19 vaccinations developed by both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are mRNAs. Source: Western Journal

Twitter Blocks FL Surgeon General Post Warning of ‘Increased Risk of Cardiac-Related Death’ from Vaccine, Then Makes a Huge Reversal

On Friday Florida’s Surgeon General Dr. Joe Ladapo tweeted about cardiac risks related to the COVID vaccine. Twitter blocked the post, but then later allowed it, which has prompted many to once again criticize Twitter for censorship practices.

Ladapo tweeted information about risks associated with the vaccine, particularly for young men, Politico reported.

“Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth,” he tweeted along with a link to a press release and a guide from the state’s health department with more information. Source: Western Journal

New York Defies Supreme Court With Unconstitutional Gun Permit Laws

New York’s new gun control law takes effect in two weeks. The law turns New York into a giant “gun-free zone.” But it also requires an in-person interview with law enforcement and the sharing of all social media accounts in order to obtain a gun license.

By requiring that gun license applicants have “good moral character,” New York is still acting in defiance of June’s Supreme Court decision, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Brue. In a new court filing last week, New York Attorney General Letitia James claims that without these requirements, there would be an “entirely predictable chaos.” Democrats and gun control proponents have voiced similar fears in the other six states affected by the Supreme Court’s decision.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s opinion in Bruen stressed the importance of “objective” standards for gun permits, ones that don’t require “the exercise of judgment, and the formation of opinion.” He also noted that “there is no historical basis for New York to effectively declare the island of Manhattan a ‘sensitive place’ simply because it is crowded and protected generally by the New York City Police Department.” New York’s default position is that all private property is off-limits to lawful concealed carry unless the property owner notes “by clear and conspicuous signage” that guns are welcome.

Campaign to Unseal Trump Raid Affidavit Got Unlikely Allies, And They Went Straight to the Judge

Several establishment media giants have asked a court to unseal all of the documents related to the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home last week.

The move came after the Justice Department filed its own request for some of the materials to be released, CNN reported.

Lawyers representing major media outlets like CNN, The Washington Post and NBC News appeared on Thursday before Judge Bruce Reinhart, who approved the warrant for the Mar-a-Lago raid, according to The Epoch Times.

Reinhart said he was “inclined” to release some of the affidavit from the raid and instructed the DOJ to redact any parts of the document that would undermine its investigation, The Washington Post reported. The judge said he would make a decision after the department submits its proposed redactions next Thursday. Source: Western Journal

America First Policy Institute: Inflation Reduction Act Will Raise Prices, Taxes, & Kill 218,000 Jobs

The reconciliation bill crafted by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and supported by the Biden administration will raise electricity and gas prices, hike taxes, and kill about 218,000 blue-collar jobs in 2023, said Marc Lotter, the chief communications officer of the America First Policy Institute.

On Fox News @Night, Aug. 1, Lotter said, “The National Association of Manufacturers says this bill will cost 218,000 blue-collar workers their jobs next year. Your electric and heating bills are going up, your gas is going to go up by $25 billion as a tax increase for oil companies that’s going to get passed along at the pumps.”

“This is just going to make the inflation problem even worse,” he added. Source: CNS News

Biden Weaponizing Justice Department to Force States Into Abortion Compliance

The Biden Justice Department announced Tuesday it is suing the state of Idaho over its new law banning most abortions.

The suit promises to be the first in a series of actions the DOJ will take to try to limit the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision in June that overturned the 1973 case Roe v. Wade.

In Roe, justices had created a national right to obtain an abortion.

The Idaho law bans all abortions except in the cases of rape or incest that are reported to law enforcement or when a physician determines “in his good-faith medical judgment and based on the facts known to the physician at the time, that the abortion was necessary to prevent the death of the pregnant woman.” Source: Western Journal

House-Passed Defense Bill Mentions ‘Gender’ 29 Times, Establishes a ‘Gender Advisor Workforce’

The word “gender” is mentioned 29 times in the House-passed version of the Fiscal Year 2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which also formally establishes a full-time, funded, stationed, and resourced “Gender Advisor Workforce.”

H.R. 7900, which easily passed the House by a margin of more than three-to-one (329-101), ensures all-gender coverage of artificial reproductive services, examines differences in recruitment and home ownership by gender – and even conducts gender-based services to foreign military and counts the number of people evacuated from Afghanistan by gender:

  • Gender Advisor Workforce: Develop and manage a Gender Advisor Workforce throughout the Department of Defense.
  • Artificial Reproductive Services: Grant coverage regardless of gender marital status.
  • Fitness Requirements: Establish gender-neutral fitness standards.
  • Recruitment Efforts: quantify gender of those enlisted by region and Army Recruitment Battalion area.
  • Barriers to Homeownership: study differences in enlistment correlated with gender.
  • Foreign Militaries: Conduct/Advise/Support foreign militaries in providing appropriate gender-sensitive equipment and facilities.
  • Foreign Militaries: Conduct/Advise/Support foreign military establishment, training, and development of gender advisory workforces.
  • Afghanistan Evacuation: Account for the total number of individuals evacuated from Afghanistan in 2021 with support of the United States Government, disaggregated by gender.  Source: CNS News

After Biden Snubs Israel, Saudi Arabia Snubs Biden

After snubbing Israel for two days in favor of paying homage to the Palestinian Authority, President Biden left the Holy Land for Saudi Arabia on Friday, where the tables were turned, and the Saudis snubbed the President of the United States.

Before traveling to Israel, Biden’s office informed Israel that the standard ceremony at Ben Gurion International Airport honoring visiting dignitaries would be curtailed. Handshakes were also going to be proscribed due to COVID concerns, and pundits conjectured that the ‘shake-less’ Israel visit was in preparation for a Presidential snub of the Saudis who had fallen in disfavor due to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi in 2018. Biden refused to call Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for several weeks after he took office as per his campaign promise to turn the Saudi allies into a “pariah.” But a trip to Saudi Arabia was scheduled after a visit to Israel. This change of heart was due to the record high gasoline cost at the US pumps. Biden had already called the Saudis to increase oil production, but they had not returned his call. Just a few weeks before his first trip to the region, Biden announced that he would not meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on his visit to Saudi Arabia. The president was going to meet with the Saudi prince, but there would be no handshake. Source: Israel365

Op-Ed: Arab summit fails to give Biden what he wants

U.S. President Joe Biden left Jeddah, Saudi Arabia aboard Air Force 1 on Saturday, ending his first Middle East visit since taking office after four days in the region without major announcements.

The lukewarm reception and lack of enthusiasm were evident when the governor of the Mecca Region, Khalid Al-Faisal, was sent to the airport to receive Biden upon his arrival in the city of Jeddah, in striking contrast to the extravagant reception that was given to then-President Donald Trump when he visited Riyadh in 2017.

The way Biden greeted Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with a fist bump rather than a handshake, and the serious expressions they maintained as they barely moved their lips, left no doubt about how they felt toward each other. Source: Ynet News

Review: The riveting ‘2000 Mules’ proves there was massive election fraud

Dinesh D’Souza is an effective filmmaker and he didn’t disappoint with 2000 Mules, a riveting documentary examining the way leftist organizations used activists to stuff ballots in the 2020 election (and the 2020 Georgia run-off election that handed the Senate to the Democrats). However, after watching it, I felt there were some unanswered questions that also deserve scrutiny so I hope D’Souza follows up on these issues.

2000 Mules begins with the premise that Trump voters have found it impossible to believe that Trump lost the election. When they contrast his campaign appearances (60,000 screaming fans) with Biden’s campaign appearances (6 vaguely animated lumps sitting in little circles); the bellwether states showing Trump winning by a large margin; the significant gains Trump made with Hispanics and Blacks; the millions of votes Trump gained over the four years of his presidency; and the mysterious overnight counting shut-down in the states that ultimately gave Biden his “victory,” they know that something is wrong.  [ Source: American Thinker ]
