The Port of Eilat in southern Israel plans to lay off half of its workforce this week due to Houthi attacks on commercial ships in the Red Sea, its chief executive officer said on Sunday.

"Eilat Port is Israel's southern gateway to the Far East, Australia, and Africa," Gideon Golber told Israeli daily Maariv.

"All activity stopped because ships could no longer pass in any direction to reach Eilat Port or travel towards Europe through the Suez Canal. Therefore, the port halted its operations and income stopped," he added.

Golber said the port will lay off 50% of its workers this week due to its economic losses.

Comment: Israel's economy was floundering even before its stand down on Oct 7, and it evidently is trying to escalate its numerous war fronts. Which, taken together with other developments - not least its brazen crimes against humanity - leads one to conclude that the regional conflagration that it wishes to incite is far more important to its fanatical Greater Israel schemes than its economy:


'Absurd and dangerous': Homeless, drug-abusing migrants take over abandoned NYC Rite Aid

A vacant building in a residential New York City neighborhood has become a hotspot for drug users, migrants, and homeless people — leaving locals to deal with their messes and safety hazards.

The 25,058-square-foot Astoria plot at 47-07 Broadway used to be the home of a Rite Aid store. The company has closed hundreds of locations as it grapples with bankruptcy.

Everything from U.S., Mexico, and Puerto Rican flags to bras, bicycles, and garbage is currently on display on the building's roof, along with furniture on which the vagrants lounge, the New York Post reports.

The new "residents" of the building are mostly middle-aged men, many of whom appear to not speak English, according to the outlet.

Neighbors have been forced to live with the apocalyptic scene, one woman telling the publication that the building has "got a real 'Mad Max' vibe going on."

Adidas drops Bella Hadid from ad after Israeli criticism

German sportswear giant Adidas has dropped American model Bella Hadid from their advertising campaign for retro sneakers after facing criticism from Israel.

Hadid, whose Palestinian father was born in Nazareth, has been a vocal advocate for the rights of the ethnonational group, calling for an end to the bloodshed in Gaza.

She has repeatedly criticized the Israeli government over the ongoing Gaza conflict, which to date has claimed over 38,000 Palestinian lives. In October 2023, the IDF launched a military operation in the enclave in response to a deadly Hamas raid that had left approximately 1,200 Israelis dead.

Bella and her sister Gigi, also a model with millions of social media followers, have participated in several pro-Palestinian demonstrations, publicly accusing Israel of committing "genocide" in the enclave. The Hadid sisters have also donated $1 million to support multiple Palestinian relief efforts in Gaza, including HEAL Palestine, the Palestine Children's Relief Fund, World Central Kitchen, and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Outspoken Ukrainian ultranationalist and former MP, Irina Farion, has been fatally shot outside her home in the western city of Lviv, according to local media.

Farion, 60, was a member of the Verkhovna Rada from 2012-2014, and was best known for hard-line Russophobic positions. She was attacked on Friday evening on the street outside her home.

"There was a shot to the temple. The shooter was seen by the neighbors, he was wearing gloves and the weapon did not have a silencer," local journalist Marta Olyarnik said in a Facebook post.

Farion was rushed to a local hospital. One local Telegram channel reported she was in critical condition, while city councilman Igor Zinkevich described her condition as "serious."

Several hours later, however, Lviv Mayor Andrey Sadovoy confirmed that she succumbed to her injuries.

Comment: Are ordinary citizens starting to turn on their radical leaders, or was this incident an inter-party hit? The fabric of Ukrainian politics is fracturing amid the growing realization that the war they were led into by the West is being lost. It's logical that anatical hardliners such as Farion would be the first targets.


Senator blasts 'national embarrassment' as Biden ends Gaza floating pier mission

© CentcomUS pier removal from Gaza
It's official: Biden's $230+ Gaza humanitarian pier has been permanently dismantled after it spent more time out of commission than in actual operation. The Pentagon has tried to pass it off dubiously as 'mission accomplished' - despite an avalanche of criticism including from sitting Senators and House members heaped on the problem-prone project.

Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, Deputy Commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM), announced at the end of this week:
"The maritime storage mission involving the pier is complete, so there's no more need to use the pier, particularly because we're able to implement a more sustaining pathway, to Ashdod. Our assessment is that the temporary pier has achieved its intended effect to surge a very high volume of aid into Gaza and ensure that aid reaches the civilians in Gaza in a quick manner."
The pier faced frequent shutdowns amid tumultuous Mediterranean seas, and at one point in the early summer actually broke apart, with pieces having drifted onto an Israeli beach further north.

The statement confirmed that the unit which oversaw the pier's construction and operations - Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore, or JLOTS - will soon deploy back to the United States.

Comment: The Gaza pier was a publicity stunt as far as effectiveness, and a joke regarding construction.

Children raped at US migrant shelters - Justice Department

Ruby, Arizona • June 24, 2024
A "social justice" nonprofit allegedly looked the other way while its workers abused children for eight years.

Staff at a nonprofit organization responsible for housing thousands of underage migrants inflicted "severe" sexual abuse upon the kids in their care, according to a lawsuit filed by the US Justice Department on Thursday.

"Multiple" employees at facilities operated by Southwest Key took part in the abuse, the Justice Department stated in a press release. The "severe or pervasive" abuse included "sexual contact and inappropriate touching, solicitation of sex acts, solicitation of nude photos, entreaties for inappropriate relationships and sexual comments," the statement claimed.

The sex crimes allegedly took place between 2015 and 2023, while Southwest Key earned billions of dollars in government contracts to house unaccompanied minors caught crossing the US-Mexico border illegally.

The company, which operates 29 shelters in Texas, Arizona, and California, "took insufficient action to prevent sexual harassment of the children in its care," the statement continued. In some cases, it claimed, children were discouraged from reporting sexual harassment and threatened if they spoke up about the abuse.

Comment: The innocent pay the price for Biden's policies. The country pays the price for whom (it is told) it 'elects'.


Americans betting against Biden

The odds of Joe Biden dropping out of the US presidential race reached as high as 84% on Friday, according to the predictive betting site Polymarket.

The 81-year-old incumbent president has been quarantined at his Delaware home since Wednesday, after testing positive for Covid-19. Calls for him to make way for another Democrat have grown louder since last Saturday's attempted assassination of his Republican rival Donald Trump.

"His soul-searching is actually happening, I know that for a fact," Reuters reported on Friday, citing a source within the Biden campaign. "He's thinking about this very seriously."

Polymarket had Biden's odds of dropping out at 19% ahead of the June 27 debate. They have since spiked to 84%, but leveled out at around 70% as of Friday afternoon.

The betting site also put Trump's chances of winning the November election at 66%. Vice President Kamala Harris, the most likely Democrat to replace Biden at the top of the ticket, was at only 18%.


Journalist fined for 'body-shaming' Meloni

A Milan court has ruled that journalist Giulia Cortese must pay €5,000 ($5,465) in damages to Italy's Giorgia Meloni over an online insult about her height. The judge said the comments on X (formerly Twitter) were "defamatory" in nature and "body-shamed" the Italian prime minister.

Cortese was also given a second suspended fine of €1,200 and can appeal the ruling.

The case dates to October 2021, when Cortese posted a mocked-up photo of Meloni with a picture of the late fascist leader Benito Mussolini in the background. The politician, who was then in opposition, confronted the journalist online over the picture. The reporter replied with a string of messages, one of which said: "You don't scare me, Giorgia Meloni. After all, you're only 1.2 meters (4 feet) tall. I can't even see you."

In a post on Facebook, Meloni wrote at the time that "this falsified photo is of unique gravity." She added that she had "already instructed my lawyer to take legal action against this despicable hoax."

While the judge eventually concluded that the Mussolini post did not violate the law, the court ruled in Meloni's favor concerning Cortese's comments on her stature.

Comment: Seems like the only thing shorter than Meloni is her temper.

Leftists prove they are zealots in the wake of Trump shooting

Thomas Matthew Crooks, Trump assassin
The response by a large portion of the political left to the attempted assassination of Donald Trump has revealed a disturbing ideological madness - A dedication to lies and delusions that goes deep into the realm of zealotry. It's something that thousands of commentators have warned about over the years. The general public has long denied the claim as being "reactionary" and many thought conservatives were exaggerating. Recent events prove otherwise.

What else would you expect from the same group of people that can't define what a woman is? The same people that think sexualized drag performances and graphically sexual picture books are a good idea for young children in public schools? The same people that engaged in years of violent rioting because of the death of a hardcore criminal and fentanyl addict who happened to be black? The same people that supported medical authoritarianism and mass censorship during the covid pandemic? The same people that claimed "stagflation was transitory"? The people that bought into the Russiagate hoax, refused to believe that Hunter Biden's laptop was real and denied Joe Biden's steep cognitive decline?

This zealotry continues to be exposed through their response to the attempted assassination of Donal Trump. The narrative in the media is that now is the time for "cool heads" and calm, yet, at the same time they are working diligently to peddle the conspiracy that the plot was staged by Trump himself.

Comment: Those claiming it was staged by Trump and those expressing regret that the shooter missed are empty shells of human beings. Walking corpses animated only by their love for Big Brother.
