    A growing number of Americans want President Biden to encourage Israel to cease its military action in Gaza, according to a new poll. A new CBS News/YouGov poll found that 37 percent of surveyed Americans want Biden to encourage Israel to stop its military actions in Gaza — slightly up from the 31 percent who said the same in February. Another 23 percent said in the new poll that Biden should encourage Israel to decrease its military actions in Gaza.

    Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he believed the only way to move forward was to end the Israel-Hamas war and reach a two-state solution with Palestine. Host Kristen Welker said, “As you know, looming large over that event including with some protesters is the war in the Middle East and, in fact, a new Gallup poll now oppose Israel’s war in Gaza and approval has dropped from 50 to 36% since November. There were a number of interruptions at that fund raiser and a growing number of Democrats are calling this a genocide...

    The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday ordered Israel to take more steps to protect civilians in Gaza and alleviate the humanitarian crisis in the coastal strip where Israeli troops are fighting against Palestinian militant group Hamas. The court ordered Israel to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid into Gaza, noting there is no substitute for land crossings for supplies. The court also said Israel must “not commit acts which constitute a violation of any of the rights of the Palestinians in Gaza.” The United Nations high court’s Thursday order comes after a plea from South Africa for the...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated that a key plank of President Joe Biden’s agenda to lower costs is by “creating incentives to dramatically improve the use of clean energy in the United States” and “over time, this will help lower household energy costs.” Host Andrea Mitchell asked, “[H]ow can you — I know you’re in Georgia today — help get the message to people that the economy is better and improve it even more, get those grocery prices down, help bring down the prices that people are feeling at their kitchen table?”

    Waging Non Violence ^ | March 25, 2024 | Robert C. Steiner
    For over 30 years, I have been frustrated by the inevitable destruction our gun culture imposes on American life. As a state senator in Utah in the 1990s, I promoted carefully modest gun safety bills. As an ordinary contributor to Brady, Giffords, Everytown, and other gun responsibility organizations, or just as another person expressing my opinion, lost in the vastness of our media universe, the disorder of gun violence calls out for my attention as a citizen. As it is for everyone, this call is more immediate for me after a mass shooting of children, but it is always there....

    A new report from the Federal Trade Commission suggests grocery giants used inflation and supply chain disruptions during the pandemic to drive their profits and keep raising prices. Now, the agency is urging Congress to take a closer look into grocery profits. The data shows food prices in the United States spiked 11% between 2021 and 2022, the largest annual increase in over 40 years. News4JAX asked local consumers about their current spending Friday. “Everything. Everything. Everything that I can think of that I need, you know, it’s expensive,” a consumer said. The prices at the grocery store are high....

    When I received my acceptance letter almost a decade ago to the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington D.C., my imagination raced with the intense, life-or-death scenarios I would be confronted with on a regular basis in order to protect and serve the citizens of our nation’s capital. But even while contemplating such scenarios, I never imagined what I experienced on Jan. 6, 2021, or that I would be one of a few dozen officers standing in between former President Donald Trump’s fascist dreams and American democracy. The attack on the Capitol, perpetuated by a mob commanded by Trump, was and...

    President Joe Biden has issued a new environmental federal regulation to begin phasing out gas-powered cars, requiring American automakers to produce Electric Vehicles (EVs) as part of his sweeping green energy agenda. On Wednesday, Biden announced the rule to require that a majority of new cars sold in the U.S. market are EVs or hybrids by 2032, the New York Times details: Nearly three years in the making, the new tailpipe pollution limits from the Environmental Protection Agency would transform the American automobile market. A record 1.2 million electric vehicles rolled off dealers’ lots last year, but they made up...

Source: Zelenskyy in an interview for British TV programme Channel 4 News Quote: "I haven’t postponed [the elections – ed.], it happens automatically. I’m just not able to hold them now, primarily because of the law which forbids me from doing it. It doesn’t just forbid me from holding elections, but all institutions in general.

    Afederal judge on Friday dismissed a challenge from 21 states against a Biden administration program that allows 30,000 asylum-seekers into the U.S. from four countries each month. U.S. District Judge Drew B. Tipton ruled that Texas and 20 other Republican-led states didn’t have legal standing in the lawsuit because they didn’t demonstrate suffered financial harm from the federal program, the Associated Press reported. The program lets a total of up to 30,000 asylum-seekers enter the U.S. each month from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela. “In reaching this conclusion, the Court does not address the lawfulness of the Program,” Tipton wrote...

    On Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that the problems on the border are not due to President Joe Biden reversing several Trump-era policies, cited Republicans who saw the Senate border bill as Democrats “moving in a tough, strong direction” on the issue, and stated that by opposing the Senate bill, Trump said, “hold it out for political advantage and let this so-called crisis fester for another year.”Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin asked, “Well, Senator, Biden was right last night to bring up the strong bipartisan border bill that Trump essentially killed that...

    Portland, Oregon - Veterans burned their US military uniforms during a powerful protest on Wednesday in honor of Aaron Bushnell, the active Air Force member who self-immolated in protest at Israel's war on Gaza. The action, organized by the group About Face: Veterans Against the War, took place in honor of 25-year-old Bushnell, an active Air Force member who died after setting himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington DC on Sunday to protest US complicity in Israel's bombardment and invasion of Gaza.

    A Texas federal judge on Thursday placed a preliminary injunction on a new Texas law that would allow local authorities to arrest and deport immigrants who enter the state illegally. Senate Bill 4, signed into law in December by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, would make illegally crossing the southern border into Texas a class B misdemeanor. Local law enforcement officials would have the authority from the state to arrest, detain, prosecute, and even deport illegal immigrants. Individuals who refuse to leave could be charged with a second-degree felony and face up to 20 years in prison. Those caught smuggling illegal...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) argued that President Joe Biden “implemented one of the toughest new regulatory regimes at the border in decades,” and “What changed is that there are now 10,000 people showing up on a daily basis. And so, the crisis is bigger, it’s more immediate.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “Do you accept that President Biden and his team waited too long, because there is an argument that he waited too long to address the gravity of this crisis? Today’s trip was only the second time he’s actually visited the southern border. He...

    That’s why I signed the historic executive order to advance executive [effective] and accountable community policing, and it’s very effective so far. You know, and I’m going to continue to call on Congress to pass the George Floyd Policing and Justice — the Justice in Policing Act so we can make police reform the law of the land. We’ve also made historic investments in proven strategies to interrupt and prevent crime and violence in the first place. These programs use trusted messengers, including people — people who are in the neighborhood, people who have — have been incarcerated and are...

    During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Late Night,” President Joe Biden stated that the Senate border bill “would allow us to control the border” and if he’s re-elected it will be taken up in the House and be passed, which Democrats didn’t do when they had control of both chambers and the White House from 2021 to 2023. After host Seth Meyers said, “You even got an immigration bill that passed in the Senate, but never got taken up in the House,” Biden declared, “It will be.” Meyers then asked, “What do you — would you want...
