“F*** the Jews! Rape their daughters!”(1) Antisemitism is rearing its ugly head again. It has even infected major news sites like CNN. Adeel Raja, a former CNN contributor, back in 2014 posted on Twitter the following tweet in support of Germany prior to the FIFA World cup between the latter country and Argentina (2), “The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!” When Germany won, he followed up the next day with a tweet saying, “Hail Hitler.” When the violence began in Israel this year, he tweeted out on May 16th, 2021 “the world today needs a Hitler.” He also responded to a tweet supporting Israel from former Vice President Mike Pence in May of this year, saying “a history of creating terrorists and standing with them!” He was justifiably fired, but he wore his firing like a badge of honor, even tweeting “glad a single tweet contributed to the #Palestine cause and brought it to limelight with me loosing my job and the West’s claim of Freedom of expression and human rights!”
Since the protest at the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, the mainstream media and Democratic party have sought to capitalize on the so-called ‘attack on the Capitol.’ It began with the second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump. (1) He had already left office at the time, and he had not committed a crime as is specified for impeachment to take place in the Constitution. (2) Not to mention that the media continues to obsess over the protest, calling it an insurrection. Joe Scarborough, of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, has even said that anyone who dares question the legitimacy of the election, which was the actual reasoning for the protest, aptly named ‘Stop the Steal,’ should ‘just get the Hell out!’ (3) That’s not all that is happening. On February 15th, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that she planned to create a ‘9/11 type commission,’ (4) and on May 19th a bill creating the commission passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 252-175. (5) Thirty-five Republicans voted in favor of the commission.
'The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry out: 'O Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.'- The Covenant of Hamas (1) Since the 10th of May, rockets have been falling on the nation of Israel. These bombs were launched by the Islamic fundamentalist organization Hamas, and according to the Times of Israel, nearly 2,500 rockets have been fired. These rocket launches have resulted in the death of nearly ten people. (2) What is the cause of this sudden outbreak of violence? It begins in the small Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
May 1st, 2021. Truth Matters had the opportunity to attend the Utah 2021 GOP state convention. It was at this convention that Senator Mitt Romney and Governor Spencer Cox were booed and heckled, the latter was booed for nearly two whole minutes. (1) (2) There was also a resolution to censure the Senator, but that was defeated by a vote of 798-711. (3) The real story coming out of the convention however was the election of new state party leadership. Governor Cox, and many other state leaders, had endorsed a slate of candidates for state Republican party leadership, such as state Chair, and Vice Chair, Secretary. (4) With the exception of the incumbent Treasurer, Mike Bird, an entirely new party leadership was voted in, and the candidates endorsed by Governor Cox were defeated by a significant margin.
The indispensable necessity of complete authority at the seat of government, carries its own evidence with it. It is a power exercised by every legislature of the Union, I might say of the world, by virtue of its general supremacy. Without it, not only the public authority might be insulted and its proceedings interrupted with impunity; but a dependence of the members of the general government on the State comprehending the seat of the government, for protection in the exercise of their duty, might bring on the national councils an imputation of awe or influence, equally dishonorable to the government and dissatisfactory to the other members of the Confederacy.- Federalist 43, James Madison (1)
"The US is the embodiment of evil, then they complain why we chant 'Death to America. As long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon 'Death to America.”-Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran. (1) In 1979 there was an overthrow of the Iranian Shah, Reza Ali Pahlavi. The overthrow is officially called the Islamic Revolution, was led by Sayyid Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini, an exiled Islamic scholar who would become known to the world as Ayatollah Khomeini. (2) The result of this ‘revolution’ was the establishment of a theocratic regime that has based its entire legal system off of Islamic law, or rather Sharia law, a system that establishes a patriarchal system, and has historically been abusive towards women. (3) While the country does have elected officials, such as a President, a Prime minister, and a legislative body, the true power of Iran’s political system rests with the Supreme Leader, who controls the military, state run media, and the judicial system, and a twelve, person body called the Guardian council that vets, and approves of which political parties and individuals can hold political office. (4) Another thing that must be considered is that since 1984, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been labeled by the US State Department as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, on a list that includes North Korea, Syria, and Cuba. (5) Iran has also exerted immense political influence in the Southwest Asian, or Middle Eastern region,(6) even having a former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling for the nation of Israel to be ‘wiped off the map.’ (7)
“The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into just a political football, whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want.”- President Joseph R. Biden As of April 9th, 2021, President Biden has signed an executive order creating a commission to study the issue of expanding the United States Supreme Court,(1) bringing to the forefront an issue that has remained largely unpopular amongst the general public since the issue was last polled in October of 2020, in the middle of Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing.(2) Furthermore, the current number of Justices on the Supreme Court has not been changed for more than one hundred and fifty years.(3) However, within the first one hundred years of America’s inception as a nation, it has been subjected to changes.(4)
Good Ol’ Dominion voting. What are they up to now? Well let’s see; Fox News is being sued for defamation by Dominion for $1.6 billion dollars after some in the company pushed the so-called ‘conspiracy theory’ that Dominion rigged the 2020 presidential election, naming Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro as defendants.(1) Sadly, Fox News has pulled back from many of these claims as a result as far back as December of 2020, and they are not alone in that move. Newsmax has also pulled any content referring to the 2020 election as being a stolen election,(2) as has One America News Network (OANN).(3) They are also suing attorney Sidney Powell,(4) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for $1.3 billion each,(5) MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell, who is also launching a new social media platform called Frank,(6) for an additional $1.3 billion, and threatening to go after anyone else who seeks to spread these ‘conspiracy theories.’(7)
Vice President Kamala Harris is a skilled political operator. Now why would one say that? Well, a quick dive into the political career of the first Asian American, and woman Vice President will shed some light on her political prowess.
