"The way people speak of those in power, calling their commands “laws,” referring to disobedience to them as a “crime,” and so on, implies the right of “government” to rule, and a corresponding obligation on the part of its subjects to obey. Without the right to “rule,” (“authority”) there is no need to call the entity “government,” and all the politicians and their mercenaries become utterly indistinguishable from a giant organized crime syndicate, their “laws” no more valid than the threats of muggers and carjackers." -- Larken Rose

Update (1815ET): Anti-Israel protesters were filmed dragging and assaulting a DC cop, and setting fire to an American flag in protest of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech.

Meanwhile, all three flags at Union Station were replaced with Palestinian flags.

Summary: Seeking to shore up support for the war against Hamas in Gaza, and with Vice President Harris not in attendance and with dozens of Democrats also choosing to skip in protest, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed "this great citadel of democracy for the fourth time." He also took time in the lengthy address to acknowledge rescued hostages and their families, including families of American hostages, present in the chamber for the speech.

"I will not rest until all of their loved ones are home! All of them" - he said of the hostages. We are "actively engaged" in intensive efforts to secure their release, the prime minister said. "Some of them are taking place right now." He also recognized "President Biden's "tireless efforts" and "heartfelt support" for Israel. Biden "dispatched two aircraft carriers to the Middle East to prevent a wider war," Netanyahu said. Also acknowledging this politically chaotic and sensitive moment where Biden has bowed out of the presidential race, he called the US president "A proud Irish-American Zionist." But he also by the end of the speech thanked Donald Trump for forging the historic Abraham Accords, and gave thanks for his surviving the assassination attempt against him.

Bibi is a master of optics, and he delivered a highly emotional reminder of the enormity and evil of the Oct.7 terror attacks. As expected, he linked 9/11, Oct. 7, and the Holocaust, but also highlighted American domestic protests and 'anti-Jewish hate'. He described that ultimately this is a clash between "barbarism and civilization", or "those who glorify death and those who sanctify life." He said that on Oct.7 Hamas butchered 39 Americans, and likened it to having several 9/11's in one day (compared to the population size of Israel). "Iran's axis of terror confronts America, Israel, and its Arab friends," he also said at one point, before linking Iran to US campus protests. He even mentioned the "frat brothers at the University of North Carolina" who tenaciously protected the American flag from raging anti-Israeli protesters. He ultimately accused "Iran of funding and promoting" anti-American and anti-Israel protests. "If Israel's hands are tied, America is next," he claimed.

He emphasized that America and Israel must stand together... "we win, they lose," he said. Netanyahu also repeatedly went after the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) during the speech, calling the court "downright dangerous". He called the genocide allegations "utter complete nonsense" and a fabrication.

Mr. Prime Minister, a word, please: after the horrific 7 October attack by Hamas (possibly with help from agents provocateurs), which ALL civilized people rightfully condemned, you and your "junta" in Tel Aviv, began conflating genocide "self-defense" with genocide, which most civilized people cannot possibly continue to support.  

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I can assure you, sir; the photographic, and verbal evidence, for this slaughter can neither be unseen nor unheard by people who care about all human life.   

And please;  how many dead or maimed-for-life Palestinians, will be enough to "satisfy" the unspeakable bloodlust exhibited by the IDF in what appears to be a "war" against innocent Palestinian women and children who had absolutely ZERO responsibility for 10/7?!? 

Why are places deemed "safe areas" by that same IDF, become "shooting galleries" which made assassinations "easy pickings" for the IDF, with Palestinians who actually believed  what the IDF told them, and have had to move again and again from the wreckage of what had once been their homes?!?

Mr. Prime Minister, the "game plan" here courtesy of you, and your junta, is very obvious for people who have the eyes to see it.

First, you want to achieve as completely as possible, a total extermination of the Palestinian people, and to claim Israel's "right" to all Palestinian territory in Gaza and the West Bank, with land and properties then to be available to Jewish/Israeli settlers only. https://www.timesofisrael.com/ben-gvir-calls-to-encourage-emigration-resettle-gaza-at-ultra-nationalist-rally/.

Secondly, a complete control of that massive wealth of oil and gas reserves right off the coast of Gaza. https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/war-gaza-israel-brutal-drive-seize-palestinian-gas-reserves

 Then, there's the "right of way" for the Ben-Gurion Canal Project.

I think that pretty much "nails it", sir.

And sir, somewhere in heaven, the late South African Bishop Desmond Tutu, that champion for South African freedom who condemned Israel as an "apartheid nation" is praying for your soul.  

 I sincerely hope you feel his presence in your dreams, cautioning you and your minions, to be terribly careful, about what you wish for as the outcome to this war.  Sometimes, karma can be a real bear.

We saw this phenomenon in the JFK assassination. In the immediate aftermath of the assassination and afterward, the standard question among U.S. officials and the mainstream press was: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone or in a conspiracy? Hardly anyone asked: Could this be a highly sophisticated national-security state regime-change operation in which Oswald, who was now dead, was being made a patsy? That’s because it was considered to be simply inconceivable that such a thing could happen here in the United States. That type of thing only happens in foreign countries.

Modern America is an amusement park in which voters are wowed with dizzying rides, funhouse mirrors, macabre horrors, and unexpected scares. It is filled with plot twists and cliffhangers that keep Americans on the edge of their seats. Expectations are built up like an inflated water balloon until a sudden explosion triggers surprise and regret. A manufactured cycle of psychological highs and lows keeps Americans’ attention directed toward anything that is glamorous and away from everything that matters.

The Irish writer C.S. Lewis had it right more than 50 years ago: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.” The line first appeared in a volume of essays called, God in the Dock. If you are familiar with Germany, as I am, go find that book and remember that line. Today the German state is screwing down censorship to silence the right-wing opposition, all for the good called “democracy.”

Unlike Harris, Trump has earned his spot the old-fashioned way, even “taking a bullet” for democracy. He’s stood in front of crowds for five years, running to earn his spot as potential president for the second time. What has Harris done? She stood in the background and waited. -- Trump isn’t just competing against Harris. He’s competing against the system. The media industrial complex, all of Hollywood (or what’s left of it), and powerful forces in government who will move mountains to bring him down.

Border Patrol agents were instructed to clean up the border and put on a “show” for Vice President Kamala Harris’ first trip to the border, according to a new report. Despite being given broad license at and beyond the border as the so-called “border czar,” Harris’ first and only visit to the border came in June 2021. Now it’s becoming clear that even this brief visit did not give the vice president a true look at the crisis sill unfolding at the border.

In the spirit of the Soviet Union’s Holodomor of 1932, the UK government has implemented a scheme that pays farmers NOT to grow food. This preposterous move has riled up controversy and disturbed farmers across the UK, hearkening to the days when government’s intentionally starved populations for their own political and territorial gain. Today’s UK starvation scheme, known as the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), forms part of the government's broader strategy to encourage “environmentally sustainable” farming practices. Instead of introducing these new farming practices gradually, the UK government has decided to destroy agricultural production altogether and put millions of people at risk of starvation and staggering food prices.

Harris has become the country’s highest ranking anti-gun activist. She is not opposed to lying, spinning or gaslighting the public as long as it’s strategic and meets her needs. Neither will she hesitate in demonizing those who oppose her gun control schemes, such as labeling them feckless or extremists. -- Quite frankly, Kamala Harris comes across as goofy, but she has surrounded herself with a team of dedicated individuals who are anything but. They are as committed to infringing upon our Second Amendment rights as we are to preserving them.

The European Union has revoked Hungary of its right to host the next summit. The EU supposedly has a rotating presidency of council to maintain the appearance that each state has an equal say in the direction of the bloc. The truth of the matter is that the unelected elite in Brussels control all of Europe and will silence dissenters, as Hungray’s Viktor Orban recently learned. The next EU summit was to take place  August 28-29 was slated to be Hungary’s opportunity to share its ideas for matters like foreign policy with the rest of the bloc. EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell planned a “formal” council meeting on the exact dates of Hungary’s summit to undermine the country’s voice in the bloc. Now, Borrell is revoking Budapest’s ability to host the next meeting and moving it to Brussels.
