After Hamas broke yet another ceasefire by sending terrorists to murder civilians at a bus stop, Israel began pounding Hamas positions.


The Israel Defense Forces resumed its military offensive in the Gaza Strip on Friday after a week-long truce as the Hamas terror group broke the ceasefire, firing rockets into Israel and failing to provide a list of hostages it intended to release by 7 a.m.

In response, the IDF said it was renewing combat seven days after fighting ceased, during which time 105 civilians were released from Hamas captivity in Gaza, including 81 Israelis, 23 Thai nationals, and 1 Filipino, in exchange for 210 Palestinian prisoners, all of them women or minors. Israel also allowed an influx of humanitarian aid into the Strip.

Still held hostage by Gaza terror groups when the truce collapsed were 137 people -- 115 men, 20 women and two children -- government spokesperson Eylon Levy said. Ten of the hostages are 75 and older. The vast majority of the hostages, 126, are Israeli. Eleven are foreign nationals, including eight from Thailand.

Palestinian Health Authorities report that the renewed offensive had destroyed 47 hospitals and has killed 440,000 Palestinian civilians, including 750,000 children and 5 million dogs. Christiane Amanpour was the first American Journalist to report the scoop.


DeSantis had some fun with Gavin Newsom last night. Apparently he just countered Newsom's lies with fact after fact, and even deployed the Poop Map as a prop.

Mocking Newsom's claim that California is "the Freedom State," DeSantis points out that :


DeSantis: "California does have freedoms that other states don't. You have the freedom to defecate in public. You have the freedom to pitch a tent on Sunset Boulevard. You have the freedom to create a homeless camp and even light it on fire. You have the freedom to have an open air drug market and use drugs. You have the freedom if you're an illegal alien to get these taxpayer benefits. So those are freedoms--they're not freedoms our founding fathers envisioned but they have contributed to the destruction of the quality of life in California. People are leaving the state because they have failed to addressing the homeless population."

When Newsom tried to claim that Florida censors school books, DeSantis whipped out a pornographic page from Gender Queer.


Joe Rogan: The Democrats' mad quest to imprison Donald Trump is "Banana Republic tactics."

Zelenskyy: Providing support for Israel hurts Ukraine's war effort.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told the Associated Press in an interview published Friday that "only the blind" cannot see that his country has lost attention and support following the Hamas atrocities against Israel on October 7, which prompted an ongoing war to eradicate the terrorist organization.

Zelensky promised he would "fight for attention" for his war against Russia, particularly in the United States, where he warned "there may be weakness" in the will of Congress to spend more money on weapons for his country.

A counter-protester showed up with... An American flag. Pro-Hamas agitators screamed "alluha ackbar" and tried to rip it from his hands.

They Just Want to Breathe (TM).

Speaking of people who brutalize children: The school shut-downs demanded by the teachers unions have resulted in kids just never coming back to school.


Extreme levels of student absence have spiked in schools across the country since the pandemic began, according to data released Friday by Attendance Works, a nonprofit research initiative.

Why it matters: Students haven't recovered from pandemic learning losses, and widespread absences affect entire schools, not just the missing students.

Nearly 30% of students (14.7 million) were chronically absent during the 2021-22 school year, meaning they missed 10% or more of the year.

What's happening: The figures are more stark for students in schools with higher poverty rates.

Nearly 70% of high-poverty schools experienced chronic absenteeism in 2021-22, up from 25% before the pandemic.

66% of students attended a school with extreme or high levels of chronic absence in 2021-22.

Preliminary 2022-23 data suggests that absences slightly improved the following school year, the New York Times reported.

Threat level: Chronic absenteeism widens inequities, said Hedy Chang, the executive director and president of Attendance Works.

Are you getting tired of The Message that it's okay for white children to suffer, and that it only becomes a problem when Minorities Are Hardest Hit?

Do White Children Matter, or not?

The New Downtown of San Francisco.

The shelves of a DC drug store are empty of household necessities like toothpaste, deodorant, and toilet paper -- picked clean by thieves.

But just outside the store, a bum has set up a table selling the same goods looted from the drug store. What a coincidence!

And the police do nothing. Crime is now legal.

That is quite a racket. The store does all the hard work of sourcing its supplies and transporting them to the market, which requires additional operating costs and maintenance.

Then bums walk in, take whatever they want, and sell the goods on the street in front of the store. No overhead. All profit.

Then their parents can shove them back into school. I know some parents who had to do this. Some kids didn't want to go back, some were genuinely afraid, etc. "Nope, you're going back to class. Deal with it."

DeSantis is a smart guy that is not helped by our idiotic misnomer of tv candidate 'debates'. I think he would do great at a Lincoln Douglas style debate and Newsome would show his airheaded emptiness quickly. Alas, it is now advantageous to simply grin and gibber lies endlessly--Biden is a perfect example of a grinning ape debating even when he did not have dementia (re 2012). Nasty guy that Newsome apparently wants to emulate.

A typically stupid conservative "hot take." Those stores engage in rent-extraction, gouging their impoverished customers by selling goods at unspeakable markups due to noxious mix of corporate greed and structural racism. Many of those stores are in sole control of their markets, oases of goods in what are otherwise deserts.

So long as poverty continues - and especially as poverty grows due to supremacist and other oppressive policies - these "crimes" will continue. Poverty is the root cause of so-called "criminal" behavior, and the structural oppression of the end-stage capitalist system ensures more poverty and thus more "crime" as the poor struggle in conditions forced upon them.

This "crime" is better called or "economic justice." The expropriation without compensation from the oppressive racists at the commanding heights of a corrupt system is nothing more than a contemporary interpretation of Robin Hood. These modern merry men are liberating the ill-gotten gains of oppression and redistributing them. There is nothing "criminal" about that. Until equity prevails, such behavior will continue.

Ask the question. Each candidate gets a fixed amount of time to respond. There is then time for rebuttal or not, depending on rules.

Not really possible anymore due to population shifts. Essentially a conglomeration of different cultures in a very short time period precludes a republican form of government. Simply put, republics require a relatively stable system of what people rank order value in political decisionmaking. Madison mentioned the other possibility which is federalism but that requires decentralization from the current Fed Gov dominance (but can be achieved without a change in the Constitution fairly easily) and a refusal of the fedgov from getting involved in within state policy disputes. Still requires a commonality of the people in a state to value the same things in the same order but easier to obtain in at least a lot of the states right now than the national government.

There was a significant difference to this debate format from any recent televised debate between a prominent Republican and prominent Democrat. It's the reason Newsom did so poorly.

For the first time in memory the questions were both fact based using publicly available data and the narrator was not a flaming leftist. Newsom was forced to defend his record or lie and deflect. Guess which way he went?

Posted by: Dr. T a

LOL. She cared a lot about getting in to showbiz as well. She claimed that she was raped by Weinstein which is probably true. But here is where her story gets real wonky - she said that she was trying to get projects sold in H-wood and was naïve. She was 31 and Weinstein asked her up to his hotel room to discuss her "work". Um, she thought that was normal? Also, she kept talking to W after the alleged rape and even asked him for a donation to her husband's campaign which he did. Traumatized she was. Just another AWLF.

Meh, Bill Clinton survived after a much bigger bomb of a speech at the Dem Natl Convention. And that was still in the time of the Big Networks plus CNN. Nowadays, what matters is the brief clips shown if any on the various news outlets. GOP will cheer DeSantis and Dems will cheer Newsom. Really doubt it will have much effect on whether Gavin is parachuted in or not by Dems. Because if all else fails, the 'journalist' moderator of the debate simply gives the DNC the questions in advance and keeps the focus on what the Dems want to talk about rather than what the GOP wants to talk about.

212 Why it matters: Students haven't recovered from pandemic learning losses, and widespread absences affect entire schools, not just the missing students.


The real "Why it matters":

Most school systems are funded based on Average Daily Attendance.

They don't give a hang whether or not your kids are raped in the bathroom by trannies, get beaten to death by black thugs, turn out functionally illiterate and unable to perform simple arithmetic.

Fetterman said, well, it’s like I’m not surprised. I think the more important picture is that we have a colleague in the Senate that actually does much more sinister and serious kinds of things. Senator Menendez, he needs to go. And if you are going to expel Santos, how can you allow somebody like Menendez to remain in the Senate? And, you know, Santos is kind of funny. Lies were almost, you know, funny. And like, you know, he, you know, landed on the moon and that kind of stuff. Whereas, you know, I think, you know, Menendez, I think is really a senator for Egypt. You know, not New Jersey. So I really think he needs to go.”

Yes. This was the norm for some time, even under prog hero FDR. It should never have been changed.

The union process *must* be adversarial - two groups with skin in the game negotiating against each other. Government unions do not have an adversarial process, because only one party - the union - has any skin in the game. The government doesn't, because it isn't their money. The other skin-in-the-game party - taxpayers - don't have a seat at the table.

287 -UN: teacher held (at least) one hostage.

UNRWA is posting on Twitter that people should stop telling lies about them. I think that means the "lies" are over the target.

Posted by: Ian S. at December 01, 2023 03:03 PM (2ocoG)

288 One of the hostages, recently released from Gaza, revealed on Wednesday that he was held for nearly 50 days in an attic by a teacher from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)...The hostage also said that the teacher who held him captive was a father of 10 children. He had barely been provided food or medical attention, and was locked away by the teacher, he said.

Furthermore, Boker's report also cites another hostage saying that he was held hostage by a Gazan doctor as he was treating children patients at the UNRWA school in Nablus.


Involvement Of United Nations Employees Is Damned Serious! true, then there needs to be a very serious reckoning. It is also far from surprising.

Is it? I would have thought being a member of a terrorist organization would limit the opportunities to work for the UN. Is there actual, credible incidents or is this just rightwing UN bashing (didn't some repub candidate say they wanted to job UN headquaters down to w floors a while back?).

On November 15, the second new USAF (🇺🇸 E-11A BACN jet was delivered to Robins AFB. It is the third E-11A jet at Robins AFB with a planned total of nine jets by the end of FY2027.

351 I'm sure that's partially it. But Hamas also has poor impulse control and lots of "independent" cells that may decide to take action on their own. Maybe they felt Hamas leadership had lost their will and decided to strike out. Or maybe all of the hostages really are dead now.

It could also be any remaining live hostages have been ill treated to the point even Hamas recognizes it will make for terrible optics.

Still though, I think whatever hostages Hamas claims they have they can now claim Israel forced them to kill, even though the those hostages were most likely already dead.

359 Butcher did take a very creative approach to the curse attached to those coins. Each is linked to a fallen angel. Picking up the coin immediately infects you with its spirit. Then it gets weird.

Yes, yes he is. Michael is one of my favorite characters in the series because he really is a genuinely good man.

Nicodemus, on the other hand, is an utter bastard. He's not controlled by the demon in his coin. It's a true partnership of evil.

Harry Dresden is not as good as Michael (but strives to be), and is caught between the goodness he sees in his best friend and the evil beings with which he must often deal in order to get results.

IIRC, it's because the Brazilians are afraid that Venezuela is about to invade Guayana, Guayana Esequiba specifically. Venezuela sees that territory as it's own and it doesn't hurt that it's supposedly rich in natural resources.

I have to say, in the handful of clips I watched, DeSantis acquitted quite well against the unctuously smarmy Newsom. I was pleasantly surprised out how pointed, factual, and clean DeSantis's attacks came off.

Still, Ron has _got_ to do something about that weird, grinny-smile he plasters on his face while biding his time to respond.
It's especially odd looking when his face goes from weird grin-smile to suddenly limp and emotionless.

But it was a pleasure watching him take apart the hopeless Newsom.

But Democrats made sure to take them off thr playing field, for the sole purpose of protecting their violent foot soldiers.
