The 1838 speech by young 28 yr old Abe Lincoln certainly parallels to America today ...
Abraham Lincoln Speech, Springfield, Illinois, Jan 27, 1838 [excerpt]
..." In the great journal of things happening under the sun, we, the American People, find our account running, under date of the nineteenth century of the Christian era.
We find ourselves in the peaceful possession, of the fairest portion of the earth, as regards extent of territory, fertility of soil, and salubrity of climate. We find ourselves under the government of a system of political institutions, conducing more essentially to the ends of civil and religious liberty, than any of which the history of former times tells us. We, when mounting the stage of existence, found ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings. We toiled not in the acquirement or establishment of them--they are a legacy bequeathed us, by a once hardy, brave, and patriotic, but now lamented and departed race of ancestors. Their's was the task (and nobly they performed it) to possess themselves, and through themselves, us, of this goodly land;
and to uprear upon its hills and its valleys, a political edifice of liberty and equal rights; 'tis ours only, to transmit these, the former, unprofaned by the foot of an invader; the latter, undecayed by the lapse of time and untorn by usurpation, to the latest generation that fate shall permit the world to know. This task of gratitude to our fathers, justice to ourselves, duty to posterity, and love for our species in general, all imperatively require us faithfully to perform.
How then shall we perform it? At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide!
I hope I am over wary; but if I am not, there is, even now, something of ill-omen, amongst us. I mean the increasing disregard for law which pervades the country; the growing disposition to substitute the wild and furious passions, in lieu of the sober judgment of Courts; and the worse than savage mobs, for the executive ministers of justice. This disposition is awfully fearful in any community; and that it now exists in ours, though grating to our feelings to admit, it would be a violation of truth, and an insult to our intelligence, to deny. Accounts of outrages committed by mobs, form the every-day news of the times. They have pervaded the country, from New England to Louisiana..."
What Does Defund the Police Really Mean?
6-14-20, TheAtlantic -- 'Defund the Police' Does Not Mean Defund the Police. Although the protesters explicitly, and without a doubt sincerely, have said they no longer wanted any police in their neighborhoods. They say “Defund the police” but it does not mean defunding the police, except when it does, whether next week or in the next decade. One observer who insists on taking the phrase both seriously and literally is Joe Biden. On Monday the presumptive Democrat nominee hastened to let American voters know that he doesn’t like the idea, whatever it is...
<-- Biden himself was recently tripped up by a literal reading of the slogan “Believe women.” Many of his supporters joined him in insisting the words be taken merely seriously, to mean “Believe women, but not Tara Reade his accuser.”
The number of activists, partisans, and politicians who hop back and forth across the literal/serious divide—saying something with no expectation they will be taken at their word—will only grow this season. The spectacle raises the obvious question of how we should take them: seriously, or literally? The answer, of course, is neither.
MS Gov Reeves says efforts to defund police make no sense
6-8-20, Mississippi Gov Tate Reeves said, "We are a nation of laws. We must stand up and protect those who get up and put on the uniform every single day to protect our families. So the notion that we're going to defund the police makes no sense. In fact, we ought to be talking about and having a conversation about spending more money on police. Many times, these incidents are occurring because you're putting police officers in a situation in which they have fear because they don't have proper backup and, in many instances, proper training."
6-17-20, Attorneys Clark Brewster and Paul DeMuro, Tulsa, OK filed a lawsuit claiming Pres Trump's 'KEEP AMERICA GREAT' rally would endanger the public's health; because the rally is bringing thousands of people into an indoor arena. The lawyers wanted to enforce masks and social distancing at the Saturday, June 20, 2020 rally where reportedly a million people have requested tickets. The lawyers argued that the Covid virus cases in the city of Tulsa and state of Oklahoma increased since June 1, 2020 [YEAH A WHOPPING 24 people].
The rally will go forward as scheduled at the BOK Center with overflow audiences going to the Cox Convention Center. Each person entering the arena will have their temperature checked, provide masks and hand sanitizer.

You Cannot Be 'Racist' Against White People
2-28-20, DailyDot -- New York Times did not fire the racist because of her series of old, now-deleted tweets, by Sarah Jeong where she had used the hashtag #CancelWhitePeople, contemplated the idea if whites were “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins” because of their propensity for sunburn, compared “dumbass f—–g white people” to dogs, and called “old white men lemmings.”
The paper's response to Jeong stands in sharp contrast to the whole host of other employees who have been fired by their companies for spewing hate-filled language. This year alone, both Papa John’s founder, John Schnatter and Roseanne Barr were fired after what was perceived as hate language. Schnatter for using the n-word, Rosanne for anti-Semitic comment. -->
<--The Times also made headlines when it fired reporter Norton Quinn after his old tweets surfaced using derogatory names for African-Americans and gays and also touting friendships with neo-Nazis. So why is the paper standing by Jeong? The simple answer: Because Quinn is white and Jeong is a person of color.
The Truth about Anti-White Discrimination
7-18-19, ScientificAmerican -- As our politics have fractured increasingly around race, there seems to be more and more confusion about who’s discriminating against whom. For example, a national survey reported that both blacks and whites believed that discrimination against blacks had declined over the past few decades, but whites believed that discrimination against whites was now more common than discrimination against blacks.
Racism against whites - American Thinker
8-8-18, American Thinker -- Unless you've been asleep for the past couple of years, you've been aware of a tsunami of racism directed against white people. The accepted racism against whites narrative goes like this: white people are inherently evil, they have caused nothing but destruction and misery, nothing good is possible from them.
The white racism is principally being stoked by leftist young whites, if not outright communist whites. True, there have been some blacks and some Latinos expressing this racism, but it is principally by leftist whites. Some of these statements by liberals are so bizarre, so disgusting, that one could be excused in thinking they came from certifiable psychotics. An infuriating thing about conservatives is that many do not fight back... sigh.
Mainstream media downplays 'insanity in Seattle'
6-3-20, FOX NEWS -- Seattle protesters have declared a six-block area “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” aka CHAZ, blocking entrance with armed guards. However, the mainstream media doesn’t seem to think the lawlessness is particularly newsworthy. On 6-3-20, Weds CNN only mentioned “Seattle” once when discussing general unrest in major cities, MSNBC didn’t cover Seattle on-air at all during the same time period. According to Media Research Center news analyst Nicholas Fondacaro both networks finally addressed the situation early on Thursday, but only to comment on President Trump tweeting about it and the evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS didn’t mention “autonomous zone” through Wednesday, He said, “It has been days since this nonsense had started and the broadcast networks -- ABC, CBS, and NBC -- have kept it off the air. The networks were busy trying to make the recent nationwide protests seem reasonable by ignoring radical provocations such as the 'autonomous zone.'
Anarchy in Seattle
6-1-20, CITY JOURNAL -- Seattle's hard-Left secessionist movement has claimed its first territory: six blocks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. For the past week, Black Lives Matter and Antifa-affiliated activists have engaged in a pitched battle with Seattle police officers and National Guard soldiers in the neighborhood, with the heaviest conflict occurring at the intersection of 11th and Pike, where law enforcement had constructed a barricade to defend the Seattle Police East Precinct building. Hoping to break through the barricade, protesters attacked officers with bricks, bottles, rocks, and improvised explosive devices, sending some officers to the hospital. At the same time, activists circulated videos of the conflict and accused the police of brutality, demanding that the city cease using teargas and other anti-riot techniques. Then, in a stunning turn of events, the City of Seattle made the decision to abandon the East Precinct police department surrendering the neighborhood to the rioters.
'Gone With the Wind' fans march on social media to shame ban
8-28-18, USAToday -- The American movie "Gone With the Wind" is gone from a Memphis theater — despite a 34-year tradition — and now social media opponents are shaming its ban. The Orpheum Theatre canceled a long-running screening of GWTW because of "racially insensitive content" in the 1939 film, which won eight Oscars and was based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning 1936 book of the same name.
The film's fans, free-expression supporters and Dixie sympathizers are furious about the decision and shouting out on social media against "whiny" and PC-obsessed liberals they blame for the decision they said:
Why Orwell’s Book '1984' could be about modern times
5-7-18, BBC -- Audiences around the world are re-reading George Orwell’s novel '1984,' that is a handbook published June 8, 1949 about an all consuming overreaching big government. It speaks of totalitarianism and attempts to change the way people even think and remember history: Doublethink (holding two contradictory thoughts at the same time), Newspeak, the Thought Police, the Ministry of Love that deals in pain, despair and annihilates any dissident, the Ministry of Peace that wages war, the novel-writing machines that pump out pornography to buy off the masses: Orwell opened our eyes to how regimes worked as cameras were everywhere 'Big Brother' was watching 24/7.
Today as we read the book we have anxious apprehension, using it to measure what our nations and the world have become. Prophetic? Possibly. But stirring, moving, creative, undeniable and helpful? Yes, as it was written out of the battered landscape of total war, in a nation hungry, tired and grey, feels more relevant than ever before, because Orwell’s 1984 also arms us.
70 years after 1984: How today compares with Orwell’s ...
6-13-19, MilwaukeeIndependent -- George Orwell, published “1984,” now generally considered a classic of dystopian fiction in 1949. The novel tells the story of Winston Smith, a hapless middle-aged bureaucrat who lives in Oceania. Even though there's no laws, there's a police force, with posters constantly reminding that “Big Brother Is Watching You.” Smith works at the Ministry of Truth, and his job is to rewrite history and newspaper reports of the past to conform with the present reality. The society portrayed in 1984 is one in which social control is exercised through disinformation [fake news media!] and surveillance [now drones]. The techniques and technologies described in the novel are very much present in our current world.
One of the key technologies of surveillance in the novel is the “telescreen,” a device very much like our own television. The telescreen displays a single channel of news, propaganda and wellness programming...
NO laws in Oceania??
Big Brother is Watching??
Seattle: “The state is not abolished, it withers away.”
6-13-20, TheHill -- So far the greatest achievement of the rioters/anarchists in Seattle, is that the government seems to have just melted away, not just for Chaz, but in all of Seattle. We are witnessing what Frederick Engels  once foretold as the goal of Marxism: “The state is not abolished, it withers away.” [..] CHAZ rioters “demand abolition” of the police, criminal justice system, gentrification of cities and a growing list of other actions. It is the talk of the town where "occupants" of the city [clearly not all are US citizens] are pushing for the free delivery of everything from cigarettes to body lotion and-->

Demands from Seattle Anarchists 'Abolition of Police and ...'
6-13-20, Freedom4US.us -- Seattle anarchists proclaim: The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform.
We do not request reform, we demand abolition.
We demand that the Seattle Council and the Mayor defund and abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus.
This means 100% of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police.

The Christian Church is Alive and Well
10-17-19, Glen Stanton -- Pew reports that nondenominational churches gain roughly five new members for every one it loses. Likely most of these are folks leaving the liberalizing mainline swamps for more solid ground of actual teaching from God's Holy Word reject the social and prosperity blather. Thousands now worship online as the liberal congregations are not acceptable. Evangelicals now constitute a clear majority (55 percent) of all US Protestants. [..] It’s very much a good news story and one that needs more telling.
The Christian Church is Growing
The good news is that the Church is still growing in Europe and North America. The increase is small, but there is increase. Since 1900 the Church in Europe has seen a 52.2 per cent increase, rising from 368,254,000 in 1900 to 559,900,000 in 2015. Despite increasing secularisation in Europe & the USA, the Church is standing fast and atheism is on the decline.
May God help us regain faith & confidence in Him, His people & in His Gospel of the good news of salvation only possible through repentance & faith in the Lord Jesus. John 14:6

Candace Owens Shreds Dems For Kneeling ‘Photo Op’ In ‘African ...
6-9-20, DailyWire --Nancy Pelosi and other prominent Democrats took a knee attempting to show solidarity with the radical Black Lives Matter that currently are causing chaos & mayhem as they participate rioting, looting & arson around the country. The Dems announced police reforms in a bill dubbed the “Justice in Policing Act.” Many black conservatives & liberals alike are appalled at this show of stupidity ... one said: "Don't treat Africans like we're children." Candace Owens said: “I thought there was at least one or two things that the Democrats wouldn’t stoop to for the black vote, but there's apparently nothing. Dressing in African garb & getting on their knees for a photo op because it’s Monday & only 4 months to November.”
Ex- Elizabeth Warren Surrogate Blasts White Democrats for Pandering 'this has to be hell ...'
6-9-20, FoxNews -- Recently Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi with several other Democrats donned African patterned scarves kneeling in what appeared to be prayer photo op.

Trump President Trump Wanted 10,000 Troops to Quell Riots, Looting, Arson & KillingNews
6-7-20, ABCNews -- President Trump has always been known as a 'law and order' president. No surprise he wants strong action to quell mayhem, riots, arson and killing now ongoing in the USA. Protests are expected throughout the U.S., as one city expects 100,000 people. Governors in 32 states and Washington, D.C., have activated more than 32,400 members of the National Guard.
6-4-20, CNN -- The rioting started in May ... the lockdown was still in effect, but now a bunch of doctors say rioting 'gatherings' aren't harmful and okay that they aren't staying home; apparently not having an income to buy food is less important than rioting about phony racism. The doctors said: "We wanted to present a narrative that prioritizes opposition to racism as vital to the public health, including the epidemic response. We believe that the way forward is not to suppress protests in the name of public health but to respond to protesters demands in the name of public health..."
3-31-20, SecurityMagazine -- Millions of law abiding Americans have been asked to stay in their houses until further notice because of the Covid virus scare. Our new national focus on hygiene and quarantine means most people are forced to stay home, save for only necessary trips to the grocery store, the pharmacy, or for medical appointments until further notice; yet many health officials see no problem with criminals gathering in the streets without social distancing or face masks rioting, looting, burning and killing. Democrats want voting to be done by mail that opens great opportunities for voter fraud as the voter rolls are not guaranteed to be only legal alive American citizens. Something's wrong with this 'picture!'

Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the U.S. economy, more than 70 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 80 percent are down on the country’s political system, according to the latest NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll. The frustration carries over to the nation’s political leaders, with President Barack Obama’s overall approval rating hitting a new low at 40 percent, and a mere 14 percent of the public giving Congress a thumbs up.

The report captures the movement of people from furloughed status, mainly, but clearly job losses were low enough for this impact to push the job market back into the black.

What does 'defund the police' mean?
6-5-20, GUARDIAN -- For years, community groups have advocated for defunding law enforcement – taking money away from police and prisons – and reinvesting those funds in services. The basic principle is that government budgets and “public safety” spending should prioritize housing, employment, community health, education and other vital programs, instead of police officers.
Recent rioting leftist anti-America groups have a range of demands, with some seeking modest reductions and others viewing full defunding as a step toward abolishing contemporary police services.
Police unions have long resisted even minor reforms and accountability measures, and are predictably arguing that budget cuts at any scale will make cities less safe. Who's going to protect citizens when they place a 911 call?
Calls for Defunding the Police Are Now a Trend
6-4-20, RedState.com -- The threat of police showing up often stops many people from committing crimes before they happen, and the threat of police presence forces ongoing crimes to cease. People would rather avoid jail or winding up in handcuffs in the back of a police car for any reason. Let’s say we demolished the budget of police departments around the nation, limited their resources, and weakened their ability to respond. What would happen? Police are often described as a “thin blue line” between civilization and chaos, and the metaphor is apt.
The threat of police showing up often stops many people from committing crimes before they happen, and the threat of police presence forces ongoing crimes to cease. When something dangerous goes down, police officers are the ones who put on gear and stand in the way of it in order to protect us, the everyday citizen. It’s true that mistakes are made and some dishonorable people put a badge on who shouldn’t. Abuses of power happen when power is present. Those in blue cities [Democrat liberal leftist led] where the rioting is the worse should be well aware that if their city refunds their police department, things will get worse, not better. Rioters and looters aren’t reacting to injustice, they’re acting on opportunity.
Public Health Experts Have Undermined Their Own Case for the COVID-19 Lockdowns
6-8-20, Reason.com -- Since March 13, 2020 much of the USA has been locked down over the Covid virus scare, many people have been prevented even going to church for funerals because health experts and policymakers limited their gatherings.
For months, public health officials urged people to stay inside and avoid gathering in large groups; at their behest, governments closed American businesses, discouraged non-essential travel and demanded that we resist the basic human instinct to seek out companionship. Stated reason it could hurt us even if we were being careful, even if we were going to church or nursing home to visit Grandma. We were asked to suffer a great deal of second-order misery and even bankruptcy for the greater good.
Most Americans complied with these orders because we were told that failing to would spread the virus killing millions.
Then George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis by a policeman - for thirteen days the nation has been in turmoil as riots and looting are occurring by masses of people gathering to burn and destroy cities with the approval of many liberal leaders. Even a letter written by public health officials say let them 'gather.' More than a thousand public health experts signed the open letter specifically stating that "we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission. We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States." They conceded that mass protests carried the risk of spreading virus offering naive advice for people who are going out anyway: wear masks, stay home if sick, attempt to maintain six feet of distance from other protesters.
Former NYPD Com. Bernie Kerik: "Riots Are Organized and rioters are paid"

Also, far-left Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot told Craine’s Chicago Business’ Greg Hinz, “There is no doubt. This was an organized effort; there were clearly efforts to subvert the peaceful process and make it into something violent.” Richmond, VA Police Chief Will Smith said: "We have people from across the country who have traveled [from] many states to be here. We know that this is an organized effort."

Local residents came out to protect their town; guns and bullet proof vests. Hundreds of local citizens stood guard in front of their businesses.
The buses never showed up. Liberal media said they were never coming ... others believe they were warned not to.
World Health [WHO] Rejects Pres Trump's charges

<--"Through the middle of January, it parroted ... the idea that there was no human-to-human transmission happening despite clear evidence to the contrary." ...

The United States will cut ties with the World Health
5-29-20, TheVerge.com -- Recently Pres Trump said that the United States will terminate its relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO). “China has total control over World Health Organization. We have detailed to them the reforms that they must make and engaged with them directly; but they have refused to act.”
The president has also frozen funding to the WHO, claiming that the organization bowed to pressure from China and was overly trusting -->
<-- of their early information about the spread of the coronavirus. He also took issue with the WHO’s criticism of travel bans. Some are worried that levering ties with the organization is a drastic step; there could be catastrophic consequences to global public health. The US has contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the organization. Rebecca Katz, director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University, told Nature this week, “It’s surreal to even be having this conversation, since it’s so hard to get one’s head around the massive implications.”
Dueling claims: Pres Trump blames terror group Antifa for riots while Minnesota officials blame white supremacists
6-1-20, FoxNews -- At times and recently Pres Trump blamed violent protests that are taking place across the U.S. on the domestic terror group Antifa and other left-wing groups. While Minnesota officials claimed that white supremacists and even drug cartels were involved in stoking violence. On 5/30/20 the president tweeted: “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others! A lot of radical left, bad people were to blame for the violence in Minneapolis and elsewhere they have to be tougher fighting back against the rioters.” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said: “We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators & possibly foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city & our region,”
Biden didn't really condemn the rioting & violence
6-1-20, WashExam -- On 5/31/20, Dem former VP Joe Biden gave a little speech in Delaware; the Associated Press said he "condemned the violence." No, he didn't. There wasn't even the mildest specific criticism of the violence — not of the looting, the shooting, the arson, the vandalism. None of it. The closest Biden got to addressing the rioting was to say that while protesting is "an utterly American response" to injustice, violent wilding in the streets "is not." That's it. That was the stinging rebuke from the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee as we watched police officers brutalized, police stations and other government buildings go up in flames. Biden did not condemn the violence. Maybe the next journalist who interviews him will ask him if he'd like to.
Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti embraced Police budget cut - pay victims of traumas
6-4-20, LATimes -- Mayor Eric Garcetti said he will direct and cut $250 million from police budget and direct to youth jobs, health initiatives and “peace centers” to heal trauma and will allow those who have suffered discrimination to collect damages.

Piles of Bricks Staged At Protest Sites Across The Country ...
6-1-20, U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- An unknown group or groups have left pallets of bricks at the sites of the civil unrest from coast to coast. These pallets seem to have appeared overnight, and no one knows the source of the pallet of bricks. In a weird coincidence, former US Pres Obama tweeted that he has put out resources to “help young activists sustain the momentum by channeling their energy into concrete action” -- the day after people found the bricks at protest sites.

Jul 17, 2008 - Is Obama planning to have a Civilian Security Force in addition to the military?
1-19-20, PatriotsForTruth -- What is the Obama Youth Corps? Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth. October 7, 2012. Vicksburg. The federal government calls them FEMA Corps; but they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany.
Is Obama's 'civilian national security force' finally here?
9-4-17, WND.com -- On July 2, 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama issued a declaration that made my head spin, yet no one, and I mean no one, took notice. In a long campaign speech in Colorado Obama dropped this little bomb: "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
What became of that idea? Many people are wondering if we're now seeing the realization of Obama's concept in the streets of America – from Berkeley to Charlottesville. Could the Antifa thugs, anti-Semite leftists and Black Lives Matter racists represent what Obama had in mind?
There's little question these groups are being paid, though not necessarily with our tax dollars.

Barr recently said “it is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it” and that “federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.” He added that the Justice Dept would be using its network of 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces to “identify criminal organizers and instigators” as the DOJ works with states and cities.

Joe Biden's 'you ain't black' comment is voter intimidation
5-25-20, USAToday, Paris Dennard -- These are not gaffes. Democrats like Joe Biden are running scared because the Trump administration has been good for African Americans. The bigoted comments former Vice President Democrat Joe Biden made during his Friday, 5-22-20, interview with “The Breakfast Club” when he had the audacity to say "Well I tell you what, If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black.
As a black man who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and plan to do so in 2020, no 77-year-old white man from Delaware has the right, authority or rationale to question my blackness or the blackness of millions of Americans exercising our God-given right to be free and exercise our constitutionally granted power to vote for whomever we want, even if they are Republican. See the interview here where Biden literally tried to convince black America that our communities weren't destroyed, black families weren't ripped apart and black wealth was not stifled for generations because of a bill he designed.

5-14-1948, ADL.org -- Following the defeat of the Ottoman [Islamic] Empire in World War I, the British assumed control of Palestine. In November 1917, the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, announcing its intention to facilitate the "establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."
In 1922, the League of Nations [since 1942 "United Nations"] granted Britain a mandate over Palestine facilitating Jewish immigration and encouraging Jewish settlement on the land.
In 1936 the Arabs [Muslims] were opposed to the Jewish people returning back to their historical homeland and stepped up their attacks against the Jews. Following an increase in Arab attacks, the British appointed a royal commission to investigate the Palestine situation. The Peel Commission recommended the partition of the country between Arabs and Jews. The Arabs rejected it while the Jews accepted the principle of partition.
At the end of World War II, in 1945, the British persisted in their immigration restrictions and Jewish survivors of the Holocaust were violently turned away from their homeland while Jews continued to be smuggled in. The British concluded that they could no longer manage Palestine and handed the issue over to the United Nations.
On November 29, 1947, after much debate and discussion, the UN recommended the partition of Palestine into two states one Jewish and one Arab. The Jews accepted the UN resolution while the Arabs rejected it. [...] The British mandate over Palestine officially terminated at midnight, May 14, 1948.

Critics say the trip is little more than a chance to bestow the United States’ blessing on such a move.
Big Brother is Watching Us: New Contact Tracing Tactic
5-17-20, RouteFifty -- Some USA state and local governments are deploying a tactic known as 'contact tracing' to monitor American citizens. And if there's a connection to a positive virus case, it would require businesses to collect data about their customers and turn it over to health departments. It's raising privacy concerns. [..] The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Carpenter v. United States, established greater digital privacy rights protections.
County attorneys have been asked to explain why plaintiffs would not have standing to challenge the third-party disclosure of their personal information. One said that when customers enter a public business, their expectation of privacy is diminished. “You cannot voluntarily enter a place where there are people around and claim it is private.” Another countered: “You don’t give up your rights when you venture out into the public. You still have Fourth Amendment rights.”
Big Brother Wants To Track Your Location And Health Data
4-16-20, NBC -- Privacy advocates are watching closely the proposed 'contact tracking' intentions of US governments. ... longtime public health strategy, “contact tracing,” involves identifying individuals who have contracted the covid virus [..] The stated purpose is for the public health officials to be better equipped to track who has the coronavirus and warn those who have been in contact so they can self-isolate. Also, state and local governments can determine whether stay-at-home orders are effective pinpointing emerging hot spots. However, privacy experts say these measures should be taken only if responsible consumer protection policies are put in place: obtaining clear consent from users, ensuring public presentation of data remains anonymous and implementing limits on what data is gathered and how long it is held. Many admit that after this crisis ends, it will be a struggle to recover the protections and privacy -- once lost it stays lost.
Judge Sullivan Hires Personal Lawyer to Defend HIMSELF in His Decision in Gen Flynn's Case
5-23-20, SFGate.com -- WASHINGTON - Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan who refused a Justice Dept request to immediately drop the prosecution of former Trump adviser & retired Army Lt General Michael Flynn has hired a high-profile trial lawyer Beth Wilkinson to argue his refusal to accept the dismissal; was it ppropriate?
In a rare step Wilkinson is hired to represent him to defend his decision to a federal appeals court.
This year, after Mueller completed his investigation and disbanded his team, AG Bill Barr sought to scrap the case, arguing the agents who questioned Gen Flynn about his contacts with the Russian ambassador didn't have a legitimate investigative or counterintelligence basis to do so, so any lies Flynn may have told were neither important nor criminal.
'OBAMAGATE' EXPOSED: How Michael Flynn was set up by the FBI
