    House staffers are going to gather on Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon to protest the chamber’s override vote of President Joe Biden’s halting of a shipment of arms to Israel. They’re also being told to cover their faces with masks and to “remove identifiable clothing” in fear they will be identified. Staff are being encouraged to hide their staff IDs as well. An anonymous organizer with the “M” moniker told the Washington Examiner why protesters were protecting their identities. “We understand there is an inherent risk in speaking out, which is why we are encouraging staff to remove identifiable clothing and...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — 74-year-old peaceful pro-life advocate Jean Marshall was sentenced by Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly to 15 more months in prison on Wednesday and denied a request to serve the rest of her sentence in home confinement due to health issues, including debilitating osteoarthritis in both hips. Marshall is one of several pro-lifers convicted over blocking access to a scandal-plagued late-term abortion facility in the nation’s capital, in a case criticized by pro-life leaders as an egregious example of Biden administration overreach. On August 29, 2023, a D.C. jury found Lauren Handy, Will Goodman, Heather Idoni, Rosemary “Herb” Geraghty,...

    Sen. Chris Van Hollen on Sunday dinged Hillary Clinton for being “quite dismissive” in recent comments questioning the knowledge and perspective of anti-Israeli protesters who have stormed college campuses across the country. Last week, Clinton went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and derided some of the protesters saying they “don’t know very much at all about the history of the Middle East or frankly about history in many areas of the world.” Van Hollen (D-Md.) contended that many of the student demonstrators had legitimate concerns about the Israel-Hamas war unfolding half a world away. “I thought…that Secretary Clinton’s comments, in that...

    Some Morehouse College students aren’t looking forward to hearing President Biden speak at their graduation ceremony later this month. Several gathered at the men's HBCU (Historically black colleges and universities) on Wednesday to call out the school’s decision to invite Biden, calling it purely political. "The general feeling on the ground is that we don’t want him here," a student named Malik told WSB-TV in Atlanta. "It’s very obvious that we’re being used to score political points and get more Black votes. It is so obvious that it’s just about the presidential campaign." The students’ issues with Biden speaking ranged...

    Pro-Hamas activists need to nix blocking traffic for their shenanigans when they’re in Florida. The police in the Sunshine State won’t stand for it. Today, some pro-terrorist clowns tried to block traffic on a major highway outside of Disney World. Specifically, it was the Central Florida Queers for Palestine who wanted to create mayhem on the roads. Luckily, this stunt only lasted 11 minutes before police arrested them.

    A prominent anti-Hamas activist was arrested for racism after eating a banana during a pro-Palestine protest. Niyak Ghorbani was accused of making a racist gesture with the banana while standing with counter protesters in central London last Saturday. The 38-year-old Iranian dissident, who has become a familiar figure for holding a “Hamas Are Terrorists” banner at counter protests, denies he was being racist and insists he was simply eating the fruit. He was referencing recent events on American campuses in which bananas were used to taunt pro-Palestinian protesters. Mr Gohrbani was handcuffed and led away by five officers after pro-Palestine...

    Fox News Senior National Correspondent William LaJeunesse joined Special Report Friday to report on increasing radical student recruitment efforts present at anti-Israel protests on college campuses nationwide. "Armed struggle is enshrined in law," showed one confiscated pamphlet. Another, "We are not satisfied with co-existence." Going beyond extremist and violent rhetoric, weapons were discovered. Chains, steel cables and buckets of rocks were found and subsequently confiscated by authorities at UT Austin demonstrations last month. More documents obtained by Fox News purportedly "celebrat[e] the death of innocent Jews and the elimination of Israel." Of 79 arrested at UT Austin, 45 were not...

    The U.S. has promised to vote against any resolution that would seek to grant the Palestinians full membership in the United Nations after a General Assembly resolution passed with significant support from member states. "Our vote does not reflect opposition to Palestinian statehood," U.S. Deputy Ambassador to the U.N. Robert Wood said after the vote. "We have been very clear that we support it and seek to advance it meaningfully: Instead, it is an acknowledgment that statehood will only come from a process that involves direct negotiations between the parties." "This resolution does not resolve the concerns about the Palestinian...

    U.S. — New research has discovered that women will throw their support behind any cause, no matter how violent and sexist, as long as they get to wear a scarf. "So, let me get this straight: this cause treats women as property, believes raping women an acceptable form of violence, and vows to murder innocent civilians - but I get to wear a scarf?" asked local college student Danielle Walker. "That sounds amazing! Sign me up!" Though researchers had posited that women would be turned off to a cause where men take videos of themselves butchering children, they were surprised...

    EW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Social media erupted in fury as the identity of the person orchestrating the "violent" anti-Israel demonstrations at Columbia University was unveiled. Shockingly, it turns out he's not just any protester, but someone unrelated to the students, married, and the son of millionaire advertising executives. This bombshell revelation sparked outrage across social media, with many questioning the authenticity of the protests and whether they were fueled by hidden agendas. The suspicions didn't simply materialize out of nowhere. They were planted by NYC officials, including Mayor Eric Adams and the NYPD, who had previously suggested the potential...

    Protests continue to ravage college campuses across the country and spreading like a virulent malignancy. Many of the protests have descended into violence. Jewish students are being unlawfully denied entrance to their schools. School administrators cower in fear save for a paltry few. These are supposedly Pro-Palestine and anti-Israel protests. They may be, but it's a small part of much larger scheme. Two thousand have been made but virtually all of them are seeing their charges dropped and few really face the consequences of their actions. Outside professional agitators are among those protesting. 282 people were arrested in New York,...

    The Democratic Party is bracing for massive protests during the Democratic National Committee convention in Chicago in August, reminiscent of the chaos of the 1968 convention. Fears of a repeat of the infamous convention, which saw hundreds arrested, have been thrown around as the Israel-Hamas war continues and as massive campus protests that have paralyzed several universities have further illustrated what may be in store for the Chicago DNC convention in August. “This last week has taken the demonstrations to a different level,” former President Barack Obama’s chief of staff William Daley told the Washington Post. “It portends that you...

    The wave of anti-Israeli protests on college campuses across the United States continued over the weekend, with two demonstrations briefly interrupting graduation proceedings at the University of Michigan. Dozens of protesters wearing keffiyehs and graduation caps held up Palestinian flags and marched down the center aisle toward the stage at Michigan Stadium during Saturday morning’s commencement, CBS News reported. As a speaker invited the crowd to join the school’s “Go Blue” chant, the demonstrators hit back with cries of “Regents, regents, you can’t hide! You are funding genocide,” according to the New York Times. A plane bearing the messages “Divest...

Andrew Dudum, the Palestinian-American CEO of Hims, a telehealth and online pharmacy known for its suggestive New York City subway ads, shared a link to current openings and encouraged the student protesters to apply. “Moral courage > College degree,” he wrote on X. “If you’re currently protesting against the genocide of the Palestinian people & for your university’s divestment from Israel, keep going. It’s working. “There are plenty of companies...
