Backroom Deals: Trump Looks to use Shady Tactics to Lockup Nomination Before Primaries: Former President Donald Trump wants backroom deals to secure the GOP nomination in a manner reminiscent of the 19th and early 20th centuries when parties chose their nominees through such methods. Mr. Trump and his political team have spent months working behind the scenes to build alliances and contingency plans with key party officials, seeking to twist the primary and delegate rules in their favor.

The Six Biggest Lies Netanyahu Told America, and the World; Quote: “He demonstrated that he is still a prolific liar misleading the public very deliberately about various policy issues. One thing stood out throughout the entire interview. Netanyahu is still the same unashamed master of spin and manipulator that he has always been. When Netanyahu’s political career comes to an end, the international community will largely remember him for his blusterous speeches at the UN General Assembly targeting Iran.

A ‘Wonderful’ New Fatwa Permits Killing Israelis Wherever They May Be – In Palestine, Israel, or Abroad: The comments come just as Israel is gearing up to respond to an all-out war assault on its innocent civilians last weekend, in which more than 1,000 were murdered in depraved attacks that included the beheading of babies. Israeli officials have now promised that not one Hamas militant will remain after its response concludes.

The Arab embargo 50 years ago weaponized oil to inflict economic trauma, sound familiar? Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine reprised the risks of energy ‘weaponization.’ Europe has been hurt by overdependence on Russian natural gas and has raced to shift its energy sources. The Israel-Hamas war that began on Oct. 8, 2023, has not yet ignited retaliatory responses from Arab governments, and the initial impact on oil has been minimal, but geopolitical effects from such a large event could still roil markets. Energy security itself is also being altered.

37.9 million Americans are living in poverty, according to the U.S. Census. But the problem could be far worse: Grace Bonilla, president of United Way of New York City, said the official poverty measure doesn’t take very obvious indicators into consideration. To start, it looks at pretax income instead of actual take-home pay. It also doesn’t consider factors such as family composition or the cost of child care. “It has not kept up with the way life has changed for most Americans,” said Bonilla.

US Blocks Iran From Accessing $6 Billion Fund: Joe Biden initially approved sending $6 billion to the Islamic Republic of Iran as part of a hostage exchange to free Americans.

Seven wild plot twists that could upend the 2024 election: Election Day is 12 months away, a century in political dog years and certainly enough time for something completely unexpected to alter the status quo.
