'I will never vote Biden': Some Muslim Americans in a key swing state feel betrayed by the president

As President

declared unwavering support for Israel in the days after Hamas’ terror attack in Israel, Ahmad Ramadan, a former Biden adviser now leading coalition efforts for the Michigan Democratic Party, called the state party chair to raise the alarm about what he was hearing.

Michigan has one of the largest Muslim and Arab American populations in the country, and they say their support for Biden was instrumental to putting him over the top in the critical swing state in 2020. But now, Ramadan and other Democratic leaders in the state were hearing nothing but frustration with Biden — and threats to not vote for him again.

In a series of more than a dozen roundtable discussions with Muslim community leaders in the two weeks since the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas, Ramadan said the main takeaway is that “people are very disappointed.” They say they “will not forget what President Biden did and why he lied to them,” he added.

“President Biden won with historic numbers in 2020. And I was proud to represent that, but the last two weeks have really shifted things,” Ramadan said. “I’ve also been getting calls from people saying, ‘I have blood on my hands because I got people out to support him during that campaign.'”

Nothing about Hamas butchering Jews.

I got out of China just in time. Anti-Semitism is on the rise and the CCP is allowing it to happen.

A Weibo account run by China's state-owned CCTV claimed the Jewish community dominates U.S. finance and politics and that the issue of Israel has often been a deciding factor in every U.S. election. The post has since been deleted.

At one point after the Hamas attacks, the hashtag "the 3% Jewish population in the U.S. controls over 70% of American wealth" became one of the top trending topics on heavily censored Weibo.

This sounds like "The Jews won't replace us" crowd here in the US.

They are xenophobic and anti-American under Winnie the Flu.

Since the Hamas attacks, they CCP refuses to condemn the attack and has allowed state media and internet influencers to attack Israel and Jews repeatedly.

My wife's mother got into a hit and run with a drunk driver and got messed up badly, so she is there until December caring for her.

I got out just in time. Anti-Semitism is on the rise.


Rule to understand in China: If it isn't censored, it's government approved. The CCP sanctions this. Winnie the Flu is a racist, xenophobic, homophobic asshole and has turned China into one of the most openly racist nations on the planet. Thanks to the intense Cult of Personality, it will be part of Chinese society for decades.

Here are some comments from Chinese influencers from the articles I posted:

"Jews always talk about how badly they were treated during World War II and throughout history. But you can't ask why. Otherwise, you are called a racist or that you envy their money," said the username of Rabbit head senior Zhang Tiegen in a Weibo post with over 2,000 likes. "Actually, before the Holocaust during World War II, Jews' reputation was down in the ghetto throughout Europe."

"In the past, Germany persecuted you. Now, you persecute Palestinians. In this world, do not force others to the corner because you would only be digging your own grave," wrote Ziwu Xiashi, one of the biggest nationalist commentators with 1 million followers on Weibo, China's equivalent of X, formerly Twitter.

"Wherever the Jews have gone, they have always been massacred. There's a reason why. You only love Jews when they are not in your area," wrote online commentator Vincent.
I got told this to my face. Jews get killed because they always cause problems.

Even when it affects one of their own, they don't care and will throw that person under the bus. SOP in China.

When Israel's consulate in Guangzhou posted a report of a Chinese Israeli woman being abducted by Hamas militants, netizens accused the consulate of trying to drive a wedge between Chinese and Palestinians citizens.

"Impressive divisive tactic," one popular comment wrote. "Is that girl even Chinese?"

Under a different news post about the woman, a comment with over 10,000 likes asked, "If she thinks she's Israeli, this has nothing to do with us. Why even post it on China's internet?"

The comments were at odds with a posting by the Chinese Embassy in Israel, which said, "Noa was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists when attending a peace music festival in southern Israel. She was dragged from Israel to Gaza. She is a daughter, a sister and a friend."

Kim Jong-un 'gives luxury cars and watches' to keep elites loyal

Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s authoritarian leader, hands out luxury cars and watches to reward favoured officials, South Korea has said.

The bestowing of opulent gifts in a country plagued by poverty and chronic malnutrition suggests Kim may be trying to ensure the loyalty of the regime’s elites.

“Kim gives luxury cars as gifts to officials who he particularly favours or those who have made special accomplishments in the military field,” South Korea’s unification ministry said this week, reported the Yonhap newswire.

“He also hands out Swiss watches like Omega or the latest electronic devices at events commemorating the birthdays of the Kim family or the party congress meeting.”


He learned from his daddy, Hitler, Mao, Xi, Chiang Kai Shek, and the first of his South Korean counterpart, Rhee Syngman.

Keep power through bribes and kleptocracy.

In the latest sign of House chaos, the temporary speaker is threatening to quit

Source: NBC News via AOL

In a closed-door meeting Thursday, Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., told GOP colleagues he might resign as speaker pro tempore if Republicans push him to try to move legislation on the floor without an explicit vote to expand his powers, according to multiple lawmakers in the room.

“If you guys try to do that, you’ll figure out who the next person on Kevin’s list is,” McHenry told the room, three sources said, referring to former Speaker Kevin McCarthy's secret list of GOP lawmakers who would serve as temporary speaker in the event of a vacancy.

McHenry's comments underscore the quandary Republicans are in: They can't really do anything until they choose a new speaker, but they can't agree on someone who can get the votes to be that new speaker.

And McHenry is unwilling to set a precedent that would give future temporary speakers the full power of speakers who are elected on the House floor. It could mean that the House wouldn't need to elect speakers in the future.

Florida cop charged for alleged sex acts with jaywalker in exchange for letting her go with no ticket

Source: Fox VIA AOL

A Florida police officer was arrested Tuesday after officials said he stopped a pedestrian and told her he would not cite her for jaywalking or charge her for sexual misconduct in exchange for sexual acts with him.

Nicolas Paloma, 29, has been charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment, Clearwater Police Chief Eric Gandy said during a news conference. Paloma has been with the department since 2018.

"I had to check myself before coming in here, because I'm exceptionally upset at the betrayal of trust in the level of confidence that people have in our officers," Chief Gandy said. "It's exceptionally damaging to our reputation and the reputation of everyone in law enforcement."

The pedestrian stop of a 32-year-old woman happened early Sunday morning near the Clearwater Beach roundabout, Chief Gandy said. Investigators determined the woman was a tourist, FOX 13 News reports.

Places in Thailand to go off the beaten past that are better than the normal four

Everyone goes to Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, and Chiang Mai.

Here are better places to go that are, at least for me, more enjoyable.

1: Krabi: One ferry ride to Phi Phi Island and the harbor in Phuket Town away, Krabi will remain small due to the limestone karsts and how spread out it is. Cheaper than its more popular neighbor to the west with the same sunsets and amenities, with one of the best, albeit expensive places to stay, The Grotto.

2: Surat Thani: Another beach town in Southern Thailand. Small, quiet, and one ferry ride to #6.

3: Rayong: Mid-sized city in southern Thailand with some of the best beaches I've ever seen.

4: Hat Yai: Quiet beach town on the Gulf of Thailand.

5: Chiang Rai: Smaller version of Chiang Mai, almost unspoiled by tourists. The way northern Thailand was before the mass influx of tourists.

6: Ko Samui: Expensive island paradise, but worth EVERY penny.
