Colors: Cyan Color

 President Joe Biden has had a very bad week. Rising gas prices and shortages, terrible job numbers, skyrocketing costs of goods in all sectors, and a war in the Middle East have all been caused by or wildly mishandled by this administration.  Even with a slanted media bias, Biden was getting bad press.  So to change the narrative, he finally let the CDC be something it hasn’t been during his tenure: scientific.

 Yom Yerushalayim was marred this year by air raid sirens and explosions in the city of Jerusalem.  A minor legal issue over an eviction of squatters who haven’t paid their rent in a few decades turned into violence in the streets and rockets in the skies.  Social media was flooded with condemnations by both sides of the aisle, but the usual suspects continued to side with terrorists and hope for the destruction of the Jewish State.  In a battle between Jews and terrorists, American Jewish group IfNotNow will always side against the Jews and with the terrorists.  

The following lines were written on the eve and the day after Yom Yerushalayim, in the midst of the wave of Muslim violence of Ramadan in Jerusalem, on the Gaza border and elsewhere, and before the start of the new military confrontation that is currently unfolding. I dedicate these lines to my friend Bezalel Smotrich, the only Member of Knesset with integrity. He was so right, and the only one, to prevent Netanyahu from forming a coalition that relied on an Arab party that supports terrorism. Smotrich did so at the expense of him being relegated to the opposition, and demonstrated true leadership. This, I believe, is the most precious lesson learned for the sake of unity and hope for the future.

Last week, President Joe Biden spoke to a Joint Session of Congress - or as much of a Joint Session as the latest COVID regulations would allow.  In a speech that was filled to the brim with lies and misleading statements, the media reaction was far different than it was under Trump.

As rockets rain down on Western Israel from Gaza, and violent clashes with police occur in Jerusalem, Israelis find themselves keeping one eye on the nearest bomb shelter in case a siren is heard. While this is an annual occurrence during the month of Ramadan, Israel must wonder, for the first time in four years, if the United States will tie one hand behind their back while they defend their citizens.
