It’s a new Brew for you!
There’s also big news brewing on the campaign and election front. But we’ve put that in a whole bag of “Campaign Trail Mix: Dire Poll for Biden as DeSantis Digs In His Heels” just posted.
War Comes to the White House … Inside and Out
A large “Pro-Palestinian” protest literally rocked the gates of the White House Saturday night. A “mostly peaceful” protest as the media likes to say. The frenzied mob, which vandalized historic statues in our Nation’s Capital, shook the fence of the White House, and cursed Joe Biden.
In fact, the protesters may actually be inside the White House. The Independent seems to have captured Biden staffers who took part in Saturday’s march.

And it seems Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter Ella Emoff is helping raise millions for Gaza. For the children, they claim. As the New York Post observes, her pitch “makes no mention of the scores of Israeli children murdered among the 1,400 innocent Israelis killed by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.” And the White House’s own watchdog warns that any aid going to Gaza has a “high risk” of ending up in Hamas’ hands.
You try to look at the bright side. At least Ella’s raising money for hostile foreign entities rather than pocketing money from hostile foreign entities. Right, Hunter? And she’s inheriting her step-mom’s charitable bent. Who can forget Kamala raising bail money for the fiends burning down Minneapolis and attacking police during the 2020 riots?
Meanwhile, Barack Obama, the man who bent over backward for Iran during his reign, dismissed ISIS as the “JV Team” and erased radical Islam from government terrorism manuals, played the moral equivalency card Saturday. During a panel streamed by Pod Save America podcast, Obama talked about the Israeli “occupation” in the same breath as the Hamas terrorist attack.
Obama: “What Hamas did was horrific, and there is no justification for it. And what is also true is that the occupation, and what’s happening to Palestinians, is unbearable…

“What Hamas did was horrific and there’s no justification for it, and what is also true is that the occupation, and what is happening to Palestinians, is unbearable.” He later added, “And then you have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.”
He did not explain how you and I are complicit in terrorists’ beheading and cooking children alive.
Squad Member Sings of the Glories of Genocide
Congressional staffers took part in Saturday’s march as well. Which is little surprise, given the attitudes of many Democratic members. Take Rashida Thaib. Please. The Squad member is now openly calling for the destruction of Israel. She posted a crowd chanting the slogan “From the River to the Sea” … which means nothing short of “Wiping Jews off the land. (Dr. Michael Brown explores this in “A Question for Those Who Chant ‘Palestine Must Be Free’”)
Then the shameless anti-Semite — who doesn’t have much use for America either — actually tried to make it sound like the slogan is a rewrite of “God Bless America” …“from the mountains, to the prairies to the oceans white with foam.”
An “aspirational call to freedom.” That’s as ridiculous as claiming “Kill the Pigs!” means “Let’s throw a pork barbeque!”
Meanwhile, video emerged over the weekend of how Hamas has gunned down Gaza residents who are trying to move south away from Israel’s advance.
From the river to the sea is an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction, or hate. My work and advocacy is always centered in justice and dignity for all people no matter faith or ethnicity.

Dr. Michael Brown has a passionate, if sobering, new call for the world to wake up, titled “Wake Up World Before Jewish Blood is Spilled in Your Country.”
From war to potential peace?
Wait! Is U.S. and NATO Nudging Ukraine Toward a Peace Deal With Russia?
When Donald Trump declared “I wanted everybody to stop dying” and talked about settling the Ukraine and Russian war in 24 hours, he was declared a Putin stooge. Now, countless carnage later, NBC News is reporting: “U.S. and European officials have begun quietly talking to the Ukrainian government about what possible peace negotiations with Russia might entail to end the war.”
According to the report, with U.S. military officials (And Zelensky’s own commander-in-chief) describing the war as a “stalemate,” support here for unfettered aid to Ukraine fading, focus shifting to the Middle East, and Ukraine running out of able troops in what’s become a war of attrition, the appeal of a negotiated settlement is growing.
Administration officials expect Ukraine to want more time to fight on the battlefield, particularly with new, heavier equipment, “but there’s a growing sense that it’s too late, and it’s time to do a deal,” the former senior administration official said.
From war to the culture war …
Now They’re Just Being Silly and Predictable. Glamour Magazine Names Dude “Woman of the Year”
If beauty pageants are now being won by biological males, it’s no surprise fashion magazines would not be far behind. Sure enough, Glamour magazine has named a male one of it’s “Woman of the Year.”
A model from the Philippines named Geena Rocero is one of seven selected as Glamour’s 2023 “Woman of the Year” picks. And tell me this isn’t a shock. Breitbart reports Rocero got his career boost when a drag queen named Tigerlily Garcia Temporosa “groomed a then 15-year-old Rocero for a stage career.”
We were going to say a women’s style magazine picking a male is a smack in the face of every female, but then we caught wind of a terrible story out of Massachusetts.
Female Field Hockey Player Suffers “Significant Facial Injuries” After Male Player Fires Shot into Her Face
Massachusetts lets biological males compete in women’s sports and a high-school girl has paid a heavy price. During a girls field hockey playoff match between Dighton Rehoboth Regional High School and Swampscott High School, a male on Swampscott rocketed a shot that slammed into the face of a defender. The girl suffered “significant facial and dental injuries,” said Dighton Rehoboth Superintendent Bill Runey. “The injury required hospitalization.”
It’s reported that male player (#2 for Swampscott) knocked the teeth out of female player. Males are allowed to play on female teams in MA because of the “equal play act”

Deliberate? No. Inevitable? Sure. Runey is calling on Massachusetts to reexamine its rules allowing males with gender confusion issues from competing against females. “Seeing the horror in the eyes of our players and coaches upon greeting their bus last night is evidence to me that there has to be a renewed approach by the MIAA to protect the safety of our athletes.”
