  • Hamas Welcomes UN Security Council Ceasefire Resolution, Without Agreeing

    Hamas welcomed, but did not accept, a United Nations Security Council resolution that passed Monday, introduced by the U.S., outlining the plan President Joe Biden presented last month for a ceasefire and hostage exchange. The resolution mirrored Biden’s proposals, which he falsely described as Israel’s proposals, though the U.S. later admitted that they were “virtually identical” to Hamas’s proposals. The resolution does not call on Hamas to disarm and requires Israel to withdraw all forces from Gaza before all of the hostages are released, meaning that it lets Hamas keep them, potentially indefinitely. Hamas welcomed the resolution but did not...
  • Panel Passes Resolution to Hold Merrick Garland in Contempt of Congress

    The House Judiciary Committee passed a resolution on Thursday to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for failing to disclose audio recordings of President Joe Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur. The full House must approve the resolution, which is largely symbolic, to officially hold Garland in contempt. Republicans maintain a narrow majority in the House to pass the resolution. Garland would follow Eric Holder, Obama’s attorney general, and Bill Bar, Trump’s attorney general, to be held in contempt if the House passes the resolution. Garland defied a final warning in April to comply with a...

    Over the weekend, the Biden administration ratcheted up its rhetoric against Israel’s fight against the terrorist group Hamas, as Vice President Kamala Harris declared that there could be “consequences” for Israel if it invades the southernmost Gazan city of Rafah, which remains the last major stronghold of Hamas. Experts and lawmakers say that despite the difficult situation in Rafah, where hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees are encamped, the U.S. must support Israel’s military efforts to rid Gaza of Hamas in the wake of the terrorist group’s October 7 atrocities.

    Joe Biden abandoned Israel on Monday when he refused to have the U.S. veto a UN Security Council resolution. The resolution called for an immediate ceasefire, which would then stop Israel from wiping out the Hamas terrorists. The ceasefire was not conditional on releasing the hostages, according to the Israeli UN ambassador Gilad Erdan. Republicans, including Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted Biden for throwing Israel under the bus and throwing a lifeline to Hamas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also ripped the move, saying that he would be canceling a trip to D.C. that his...
  • White House: U.N. Resolution ‘Did Not Condemn Hamas,’ We Let it Pass Because It ‘Broadly’ Reflects Our Policy

    On Monday’s broadcast of NPR’s “All Things Considered,” White House National Security Communications Adviser John Kirby acknowledged that the United Nations ceasefire resolution that the United States abstained from the vote on and did not veto “did not condemn Hamas” and that condemning Hamas is “important” if the U.N. wants to stand for what’s right. But stated that because the resolution “reflected, broadly, our policy, which has not changed, about linking the hostage release to a ceasefire, we abstained rather than [veto] it.” Kirby stated that [relevant remarks begin around 3:35] “the language in this resolution is very much consistent...

    NY Post ^ | 03/24/2024 | Samuel Chamberlain
    The United Nations Security Council approved a resolution Monday calling for an “immediate cease-fire” in Israel’s war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The resolution passed the Security Council 14-0, with the US abstaining and declining to exercise its veto power. The measure calls for a pause in the fighting to last through the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends April 9, as well as the unconditional release of hostages taken in the Oct. 7 Hamas attack in the Gaza Strip. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had demanded the US veto the cease-fire resolution, threatening to cancel plans to...

    The U.S. has submitted a resolution at the United Nations that calls for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and the release of all hostages held by Hamas, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said. Blinken said in an interview Wednesday with an outlet in Saudi Arabia that the U.S. put forward a resolution that calls for an immediate cease-fire tied to a release of hostages. Hamas is believed to be holding some 100 hostages still alive in Gaza. “We hope very much that countries will support that,” Blinken said. “I think that would send a strong message, a strong signal.” A...

    More than two dozen Democrat lawmakers recently reintroduced a bicameral resolution hailing the “courage, compassion, and dedication” of abortionists. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Sen. Mazie K. Hirono (D-HI), and Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) led 24 of their colleagues in reintroducing The Abortion Provider Appreciation Day Resolution on March 12. Part of the resolution calls for limitless abortions, confirming Democrats’ position that abortions should be available throughout pregnancy for any reason. The resolution calls on Congress to declare “a vision for a future liberated from all abortion restrictions and bans” and affirm “the commitment of Congress to working toward that goal...

    The United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution proposed by Algeria on Tuesday that called on Israel to implement a cease-fire against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, criticizing the measure as “wishful” and “irresponsible.” Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the U.S. is circulating an alternative text that calls for a temporary cease-fire and the release of more than 100 Israeli hostages held by Hamas. “For weeks, we have made it incredibly clear that the resolution before the council would not achieve the goal of a sustainable peace and may in fact run counter...

    The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday approved a resolution demanding an immediate end to attacks by Yemen's Houthi rebels on shipping in the Red Sea. There were 11 votes in favor, none against, and four countries abstained: China, Russia, Algeria and Mozambique. The resolution that was passed "demands that the Houthis immediately cease all such attacks, which impede global commerce and undermine navigational rights and freedoms as well as regional peace and security." US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield welcomed the approval of the resolution. “The United States applauds today’s adoption by the United Nations Security Council of...

    The 15 members of the United Nations Security Council are expected to vote on a resolution Friday addressing the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip after a week of intense negotiations to bring the U.S. on board. “We have worked hard and diligently over the course of the past week with the Emiratis, with others, with Egypt, to come up with a resolution that we can support,” U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield told reporters Thursday evening. Thomas-Greenfield did not say whether she would vote in favor of the resolution or abstain, but signaled that the U.S. would not...

    The Guardian ^ | 11/15/2023 | Patrick Wintour,
    Six weeks after the start of the war in Gaza, the UN security council has come together to back a resolution calling for “urgent extended humanitarian pauses for [a] sufficient number of days to allow aid access” to the embattled territory. The vote late on Wednesday overcame an impasse which saw four unsuccessful attempts to adopt a resolution. Malta drafted the resolution, which calls for humanitarian corridors across the Gaza Strip and urges the release of all hostages held by Hamas. The US and the UK, two potentially veto-wielding powers, abstained on the resolution on the grounds that although they...

    (Challis, Idaho) — In a surprising and unprecedented move, the Idaho Republican Party has taken a strong stance against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), by passing a resolution a condemning the “corrupt government agency” and calling for its abolition if it is deemed that the agency cannot be reformed. The resolution passed unanimously out of the body which is comprised of 216 elected Republican representatives, contained a laundry list of excesses, abuses, and unconstitutional overreaches which the resolution alleges has “undermined the trust that the American people have in their government.” The resolution outlines some of the most egregious...

    Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), a member of the far-left “Squad” in Congress, introduced legislation on Wednesday that would provide a federal reparations program for black Americans. The draft of the resolution claims the United States “has a moral and legal obligation to provide reparations for the enslavement of Africans and its lasting harm on the lives of millions of Black people” in the country. The resolution further calls for $14 trillion to be distributed to American blacks in an effort to close the racial wealth gap.

    House conservatives on Thursday bashed a resolution that called for a bust of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to be installed in the U.S. Capitol to honor the Kyiv leader. “Absolutely NOT! We serve AMERICA NOT UKRAINE!” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of the resolution introduced Monday by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.). Wilson’s proposal would direct the House Fine Arts Board to obtain a bust of the Ukrainian president and then to find “suitable, permanent location” for the statue in the House side of the U.S. Capitol Complex. “There is now a House resolution that...

    As an alternative to finding a video card for displaying documents and fine text from my computer to a 4K TV, I have been looking into 4K Display Port to HDMI adapters. These are available fairly inexpensively even at 4K @ 60 Hz, although the Amazon Basics adapters appear to suffer from too cheap contacts. (I suspect they may be ok if plugged in and rarely disturbed.)
