    Arutz Sheva ^ | 20/5/23
    Media personality and publicist Avri Gilad has questioned why the protests in the streets and at intersections have continued, even though the judicial reform likely will not pass, and called on the protesters to cease disrupting civilians' lives. In an Israel Hayom editorial, Gilad noted that he saw photos of the protest last week, noted that, "In Tel Aviv the number of Palestinian flags has greatly multiplied, in Haifa a Jewish protester held a sign showing pictures of the children killed in Gaza - and her hands were dipped in red." "The extreme left, which has not succeeded in buying...

  • What France’s Pension Protests Mean For Americans: We may still have time to reverse course if we learn from France's mistakes on unfunded retirement programs

    As the Democrats push more spending in their new budget, Republicans in the House are having yet another debate about raising the debt ceiling. The topic of the national debt tends to elicit shrugs and yawns from most Americans, but maintaining current spending levels carries enormous consequences for everyone. If anyone doubts this, they need only to look at France to see what awaits them in the near future.Although most of the news on France has centered around President Emmanuel Macron’s recent visit to China, there is something much more consequential happening back in his home country. For weeks now,...

    Thousands of people rallied again in the Czech capital on Sunday to protest high inflation and demand the government’s resignation. It was the second such rally at Prague’s Wenceslas Square after one on March 11 that was organized by a new political party known as PRO under an "against the poverty" banner. The demonstrators, speakers at the protest and the head of the populist group, Jindrich Rajchl, blamed the European Union and the Czech government for soaring inflation and all repeatedly called on the current five-party coalition to resign. “We want the government’s resignation,” Rajchl told the crowd. Rajchl, a...

    French President Emmanuel Macron has signed into law his government's highly unpopular pension reforms, which raise the state pension age from 62 to 64. It happened hours after France's top constitutional body cleared the change. The Constitutional Council rejected opposition calls for a referendum - but it also struck out some aspects of the reforms, citing legal flaws. Following the council's ruling, protesters set fires across Paris and 112 people were arrested. Twelve days of demonstrations have been held against the reforms since January. Unions have vowed to continue opposing the reforms, and called on workers across France to return...

    Vice President Harris is making a previously unscheduled stop in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday to meet with two state lawmakers who were expelled from the Tennessee House for leading gun violence protests in the wake of a local school shooting, a spokesperson confirmed. Harris will meet with state Reps. Justin Jones (D) and Justin Pearson (D), who on Thursday were expelled from the legislature for their participation in the recent demonstrations on the House floor. Rep. Gloria Johnson (D), who also participated in the protests and is white, narrowly survived her expulsion vote.

    theguardian ^ | 03/28/2023 | Charles Kaiser
    Anew documentary about demonstrations against the Vietnam war in late 1969 argues that the hundreds of thousands who filled the streets in Washington and almost every major US city convinced Richard Nixon to abandon a plan to sharply escalate the war, including the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons. The Movement and The “Madman” will air on PBS on Tuesday. Produced and directed by the veteran documentarian Stephen Talbot, it evokes a peak moment of 1960s activism – and the “absolute disconnection” between what Nixon and his national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, were “deciding to do and the human costs...

    Former President Donald Trump posted an all-caps rant Thursday morning on his social media network that referred to the American legal system as “the Gestapo” and groused, “Our country is being destroyed, as they tell us to be peaceful!” “Why won’t Bragg drop this case?” Trump, 76, lamented, referencing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his drive to indict the ex-president over a “hush money” payment made to former porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. “Everybody says there is no crime here. I did nothing wrong!” Trump continued in the post on Truth Social. “This is no...

    The U.S. government has been funneling taxpayer money to the left-wing group bankrolling protests against Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to Israeli funding documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon. The documents indicate that, since 2020, Foggy Bottom has sent over $38,000 to the Movement for Quality Government (MQG), the Israeli nonprofit stoking nationwide anti-Netanyahu protests that have seen protesters clash with police and target Netanyahu’s family members. MQG is seeking to takedown Netanyahu’s government over his support for major reforms to the Israeli supreme court that would significantly limit its power. The organization petitioned Israel’s Supreme Court earlier...

Details also emerged on Monday about the privileged backgrounds of several other rioters - most of whom travelled from their peaceful hometowns outside of Georgia to wreak havoc in the state. A police car was torched and buildings were vandalized on Saturday during...

    Booking photos of Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman taken on May 30, 2020. In a dramatic hearing on Thursday, a federal judge sentenced a corporate attorney who firebombed a police car during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests to a year in jail, arguing that his prestigious education — boarding school, Princeton, a law degree from New York University — should have rendered him a peacekeeper, not an instigator. “You’re not one of the oppressed. You’re one of the privileged,” senior Eastern District of New York Judge Brian Cogan told Colinford Mattis, even as he expressed admiration for what the...

    On Monday, Fox News host Dan Bongino opened his daily podcast on a topic that seemed like old news: Covid-19 vaccines. “I’m sensing an enormous cultural shift here, folks,” he said, arguing that even Democrats were having second thoughts. The centerpiece of the segment was a clip from the podcast of Dilbert creator Scott Adams, in which the cartoonist expressed regret over his decision to get vaccinated. “I’m going to tell you that the anti-vaxxers appear to be right,” he said. Elon Musk had replied on Friday to Adams’ statement on Twitter, noting that he felt like he “was dying”...

    Socialist convicted felon Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the current president of Brazil, removed that country this week from the list of signatories to the Geneva Consensus Declaration, a global document originally signed by 32 countries opposing abortion as a form of family planning and affirming the inherent “dignity and worth” of human life. Brazil signed the American-led declaration in 2020 under conservative, pro-life President Jair Bolsonaro, who lost to Lula in a bitterly contested presidential race last year. Lula, the Ministry of Health confirmed last week, also revoked an ordinance passed under Bolsonaro that required health workers to report...
