Biden says pro-Gaza student protesters ‘voices should be heard’ in Morehouse speech
  • So you’re saying the police were dispatched because Israel is fascist, and Biden supports Israel, therefore Biden supports fascism, and that empowers the local police.

    Reaching like that, you should stretch before you pull something.

  • Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, revoked the Keystone Pipeline permit, created a 13 million acre federal petroleum reserve for Alaskan wildlife, greatly increased oil site lease cost, signed $7B in solar subsidies, enacted the Inflation Reduction act to support clean energy, created the CHIPS Act to improve reliance on domestic technology, reenacted Net Neutrality, repealed Title 42, ended the Muslim Ban, reinstated the sanctions on Israeli settlement on Palestinian territory, signed the Equality Act for LGBTQ+ rights, restored gay rights to beneficiaries, reenacted trans care anti-discrimination law, signed the Respect for Marriage Act, enabled unspecified gender on US Passports, rejoined WHO, rescheduled marijuana, reducing drug costs with the American Rescue Plan Act…

    Trump repealed 112 climate regulations, left the Paris Climate Agreement, left the WHO, repealed trans care anti-discrimination law, repealed gay rights to beneficiaries, enacted Title 42 and the Muslim ban, repealed sanctions on Israeli settlements on Palestinian territory, repealed Net Neutrality, provided tax cuts to the wealthy that further widened our already exploitative wealth inequality, increased tariffs on goods costing the consumers, repealed the ACA without replacement, seated the conservatives in SCOTUS that repealed Roe v. Wade…

    It’s not a contest if you’ve been paying attention.

  • If the school requests they disband or vacate, and the students fail to comply, they can be charged with trespassing. I’m not defending the actions of the college or the police. I’m just stating that the school defines acceptable conduct on its grounds. Even state schools have conduct policies.

    Also, the President does not control the police. They report to the mayor. If the President dispatched the National Guard, like Trump did to the protesters in Portland and DC, then you could blame Biden.

  • I’m ensuring people are informed before making a choice. If someone chooses to abstain, they should know that increases the likelihood of Trump winning the election. If they prefer Trump over Biden, then abstain with informed conviction.

    apnews.com US paused bomb shipment to Israel to signal concerns over Rafah invasion, official says

    The shipment was supposed to consist of 1,800 2,000-pound bombs and 1,700 500-pound bombs, according to the official, with the focus of U.S. concern being the larger explosives and how they could be used in a dense urban setting.

    US paused bomb shipment to Israel to signal concerns over Rafah invasion, official says

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. paused a shipment of bombs to Israel last week over concerns that Israel was approaching a decision on launching a full-scale assault on the southern Gaza city of Rafah against the wishes of the U.S., a senior administration official said Tuesday.

    Biden’s administration in April began reviewing future transfers of military assistance as Netanyahu’s government appeared to move closer toward an invasion of Rafah, despite months of opposition from the White House. The official said the decision to pause the shipment was made last week and no final decision had been made yet on whether to proceed with the shipment at a later date.

    U.S. put a hold on an ammunition shipment to Israel

    The Biden administration last week put a hold on a shipment of U.S.-made ammunition to Israel, two Israeli officials told Axios.

    Why it matters: It is the first time since the Oct. 7 attack that the U.S. has stopped a weapons shipment intended for the Israeli military. The incident raised serious concerns inside the Israeli government and sent officials scrambling to understand why the shipment was held, Israeli officials said.

    President Biden is facing sharp criticism among Americans who oppose his support of Israel. The administration in February asked Israel to provide assurances that U.S.-made weapons were being used by Israel Defense Forces in Gaza in accordance with international law. Israel provided a signed letter of assurances in March.
