    Rates of tickets issued per 100,000 residents show that the city's Hasidic Jewish community faced severe curfew enforcement by Montreal police. For five months during Quebec's COVID curfew, Rebel News was out sounding the alarm about the targeted harassment from Montreal police towards the city's Hasidic Jewish population. Organizations that claim to stick up for Jews were silent. The only time the public heard from these so-called Jewish groups was when they decided to condemn Jews for calling a police officer a Nazi as he was harassing Hasidic Jews at a synagogue, targeting them for observing their religious obligations. Well...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence on Monday night rallied for Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, urging voters to send a “deafening message” at the polls that the GOP is the “party of future” while avoiding any references to former President Trump, who was simultaneously holding a virtual rally in support of Kemp’s opponent. “I’m here because Brian Kemp frankly is one of the most successful Republican governors in America,” Pence said in one of his most public breaks with Trump, who has called Kemp the worst governor in the country for rebuffing his pleas to overturn his 2020 presidential election loss...

    In his Buffalo, New York speech last week following a mass shooting, President Biden showed he still has only two things on his mind regarding crime: guns and white supremacists. No one can defend white supremacists. But with violent crime soaring and this latest attack in Buffalo, people want something done. Yet Biden’s agenda won’t make people safer. “Look, we’ve seen the mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina; El Paso, Texas; in Pittsburgh. Last year in Atlanta. This week in Dallas, Texas, and now in Buffalo. In Buffalo, New York,” Biden said. “White supremacy is a poison. It’s a poison....

    SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Debi Gotlieb knew something was wrong when she could not find her late father’s home on the county assessor’s web page. The property was tied up in probate and should have been listed as owned by her father, Jerry Gotlieb, who died in March of 2018 at the age of 84. “So I put in his address, and it said that it belonged to Zillow. And it showed that it was on the market,” said Gotlieb, who is a real estate agent. “I went to MLS, and it was empty.” All of her father’s possessions...

The policy, dubbed “compassionate reassignment” will permit soldiers to request a transfer to a different base if they feel state or local laws discriminate against them due to their gender identity.

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said Monday on her show “Deadline” that the Republican Party has “broken bad” because it has been corrupted by people who believe in conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election. Discussing reporting on several state lawmakers creating alternative slates of presidential electors in 2020, former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said, “Rusty bowers is the Senator in Nevada that stopped the law. The Republican leader of the Senate in Arizona that stopped the law that would have given the power to the state legislature. It was a Republican who stood up and said enough. Liz Cheney was...

    In defiance of her own Archbishop’s decision to deny her communion because of her aggressive promotion of abortion, new reports indicate Nancy Pelosi received communion yesterday at a liberal Catholic church in Washington. As LifeNews reported, Cordileone said he formally notified U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week that she can no longer be allowed communion because she is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church by virtue of her repeatedly promoting abortion. Cordileone, who serves Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco, said he informed the congresswoman of his decision Thursday after repeated attempts to speak with her about...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence appears to not rule out a presidential bid in 2024 in what will become a sizable Republican primary, even if his former ticket mate, former President Donald Trump, is also running, according to a report. Before a speech Pence gave last month in Iowa, he told the New York Times that he would not rule out entering the 2024 presidential race even if Trump enters the race as well. Pence added that he and his wife, Karen Pence, would act on prayer, stating, “We’ll go where we’re called. … That’s the way Karen and I...

    Taiwan's bid to take part in the World Health Organisation's (WHO) annual assembly was rejected on Monday (May 23), the assembly said, in a decision that follows a campaign of diplomatic pressure from China to isolate the island. Assembly President Ahmed Robleh Abdilleh, also Djibouti's health minister, said in a statement that a proposal sent by 13 WHO members seeking for Taiwan to join as an observer would not be included in its official agenda. Taiwan is excluded from most global groups due to Beijing's objections. China insists that Taiwan should not be treated as an independent country as it...
