Ambassador Friedman: The peace agreement was not to be missed: THE ABRAHAM ACCORD!
The US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, explained on Thursday why it was necessary to suspend the Israeli plan to apply sovereignty in Judea and Samaria in order to enable the historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. In a conversation with the Israel Hayom newspaper, Friedman said that "the words in the joint statement were carefully chosen. It is no coincidence that the term 'suspension' was used. Sovereignty is not off the table and I am convinced that one day the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria will become part of the State of Israel."
US prepares sanctions for Hizballah's Lebanese allies
The Trump administration plans to step into the turbulence in Lebanon to loosen Hizballah's grip on Beirut by anti-corruption sanctions for its allies, US sources reveal. Since the Diyab government resigned under mounting popular fury in the aftermath of deadly explosions at Beirut port, a power struggle is evolving to fill the gap. Washington sees its chance to strip Iran's surrogate of the allies and power which made Hizballah the military and political boss of Lebanon for the past decade.

CA pastor goes there: Dems want church doors locked
A pastor who is ignoring a court's restraining order by holding Sunday church services dropped an accusation on a national radio program: California's governor is using the COVID-19 lockdowns to collect votes for the Democratic Party.
"I can't speak for other states," Pastor Rob McCoy told American Family Radio, "but I can speak for California, where I am very good friends with many who are in the state legislature. The idea with the governor is if he can keep the schools closed and the churches closed, those are the number one places where you do voting, so keep those closed and you can do vote-by-mail."
Why do we need a moral revolution? A No. 1 song too vulgar to repeat
I'm quite aware that hip hop and rap lyrics have long been sexually explicit and vulgar. And I'm quite aware, that already in 1968, the Beatles were singing "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" But when the latest hot song, expected to hit No. 1 next week, is too vulgar even to quote, and when you realize it will be sung by millions of young children, it's time to say, "Enough! We really need a gospel-based moral and cultural revolution."
Forced Isolation May Be the Only Way to Stop Resurgence of Virus
The failure to effectively manage contagious people with mild or no symptoms is a driving factor behind some of the world's worst resurgences. But lessons from Italy, South Korea and others that have successfully contained large-scale outbreaks show that there's a tried-and-tested approach to cutting off transmission: move them out of their homes into centralized facilities while they get over their infections, which usually doesn't require longer than a few weeks.
Virus Vaccine Rush Leaves Little Recourse for Anyone It Harms
Americans who suffer adverse reactions to coronavirus vaccines that the U.S. is racing to develop will have a hard time getting compensated for injuries from the drugs.
That's because pandemic-related claims for vaccines will be routed to a rarely used federal program set up to encourage drug makers to help combat public health emergencies. It spares pharmaceutical and device makers from costly liability lawsuits in exchange for taxpayers compensating injured patients -- though it doesn't guarantee there's funding to do so.
Scorching temperatures in Death Valley will shatter records in West, Southwest

Hurricane-force storm in Iowa flattens 10 million acres of crops
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) said the storm, which had hurricane-force winds up to 112 mph, destroyed at least one-third of the entire state's crops.

"Number one, people are becoming more family-focused," says Jameson Taylor of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy. "They have to because they're staying at home a lot more."
Teacher speaks out... Five OUTRAGEOUS 'Critical Race Theory' lessons unions want to teach your kids
An anonymous California says she was shocked when her mandated training included material based off Karl Marx's "critical race theory," which argues that data, facts, and the scientific method are exemplary of "whiteness" and are "inherently racist." She says teachers were taught during the training session that racism is inherent in all white people, owning property is a form of "whiteness," and that white people only help black people if it's self-serving.

China increases military drills as tensions with US heat up
China is stepping up military drills around East Asia as a war of words with the United States heats up over Washington's military activities and the visit of a US cabinet secretary to Taiwan. One Chinese think tank even says the People's Liberation Army (PLA) may consider live-fire exercises near the US island of Guam.
Beijing has stepped up the pace of its war games in recent weeks, after the US sent two aircraft carrier strike groups on rare dual-carrier exercises in the South China Sea twice in the month of July.
How China uses facial recognition to control human behavior
Facial recognition supporters in the US often argue that the surveillance technology is reserved for the greatest risks - to help deal with violent crimes, terrorist threats and human trafficking. And while it's still often used for petty crimes like shoplifting, stealing $12 worth of goods or selling $50 worth of drugs, its use in the US still looks tame compared with how widely deployed facial recognition has been in China.
China's facial recognition system logs nearly every single citizen in the country, with a vast network of cameras across the country. A database leak in 2019 gave a glimpse of how pervasive China's surveillance tools are - with more than 6.8 million records from a single day, taken from cameras positioned around hotels, parks, tourism spots and mosques, logging details on people as young as 9 days old.

Math education prof says using '2+2=4' to show math's objectivity 'reeks of white supremacist patriarchy'
"The idea that math (or data) is culturally neutral or in any way objective is a MYTH," Laurie Rubel of Brooklyn College tweeted a week ago. "I'm ready to move on with that understanding. who's coming with me?"
She added in a subsequent tweet that "along with the 'of course math is neutral because 2+2=4' trope are the related (and creepy) 'math is pure' and 'protect math,' and that it all "reeks of white supremacist patriarchy. I'd rather think on nurturing people & protecting the planet (with math in service of them goals)."
After 'Extensive Criminal Destruction' Chicago Mayor Now Wants President Trump's Help, But Only If It's Focused On Gun Control
Chicago's Mayor Lori Lightfoot had strong words for the hundreds of rioters and looters that took to the streets of Chicago Sunday night, causing major damage to some of the city's tourist areas and stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise from high-end shops and boutiques located in the city's "Magnificent Mile" shopping district.

Often on brink, Lebanon hurtles toward collapse
Power cuts that last up to 20 hours a day. Mountains of trash spilling into streets. Long lines at gas stations. It may seem like a standard summer in Lebanon, a country used to wrestling with crumbling infrastructure as it vaults from one disaster to another.
Only this time, it's different. Every day brings darker signs Lebanon has rarely seen in past crises: Mass layoffs, hospitals threatened with closure, shuttered shops and restaurants, crimes driven by desperation, a military that can no longer afford to feed its soldiers meat and warehouses that sell expired poultry.
The Pandemic Is a Dress Rehearsal
Science will, we must hope, come to the rescue with a vaccine or a cure before our resources are exhausted. But as the world wrings its hands and waits for a deus ex machina, we must recognize that the end of the pandemic does not mean a return to the relatively stable world of the post-Cold War era. The pandemic, which is mild as the great plagues of history go, demonstrates that the complexity of this global civilization has become a source of new vulnerabilities. And with the legitimacy of many institutions resting on their ability to solve problems quickly and effectively, Covid-19 challenges political leaders and institutions in ways that they cannot easily manage.
Ex-WHO doctor who helped eradicate smallpox predicts COVID-19 turmoil for years
People will need a small yellow card at airports to show immunization against the COVID-19 virus. Schools, restaurants and sports stadiums will be equipped with quick, inexpensive testing stations for students and customers. The world will be fighting coronavirus the next three to four years as virus hot spots skip from nation to nation and the pandemic's toll will linger for decades, said Dr. Larry Brilliant, a California epidemiologist who was part of a World Health Organization team in the 1970s that helped eradicate smallpox.
Economic Devastation On A Scale That America Has Never Seen Before

Netflix orders queer-friendly "DeadEndia" animated kids series
Everyday it seems the LGBTQ+ folks come out with a new way to try to "normalize" their degenerate lifestyles and push it on our children. One of the latest moves by the LGBTQ+ supporters is a new animated kids series from NetFlix that features "queer-friendly" characters and storylines. While I am not familiar with the novels of Hamish Steele this new move to push this animated series featuring LGBTQ+ "friendly" characters and storylines to kids is revolting. There have already been numerous attempts to normalize the LGBTQ+ lifestyle recently with Spongebob Squarepants coming out as gay as well as "Thelma" outed as gay in the remake of Scooby Doo. I guess the perverts will never be satisfied until everyone on TV is "gay".

Silence on abortion forfeits right to be outraged
One of the country's pro-life leaders is telling it like it is when it comes to abortion.
Dr. Johnny Hunter pastors Cliffdale Community Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina and has been on the frontlines of the fight against abortion, partly because of its devastating impact on African-Americans. As Breitbart reports, Hunter does not mince words on the need for action in a sermon featured in the pro-life documentary Maafa21.
"Brothers and sisters, it's time for us to go to the streets on this issue," he implores. "We need to be in the streets on this issue. If we look the other way while our smallest brothers and sisters are being lynched in the womb, we lose the right to be outraged that we were once lynched by the Klan."

Split societies, global chaos and World War Three: We could be in for the most tumultuous era in modern history
As we cross into the second half of 2020, there is little hope left that our misfortunes will end when this annus horribilis goes out. We may be entering one of the most cataclysmic and fateful periods in the history of humankind. There is the growing realization that humanity is in for an extremely rough ride that could last at least a decade.
This sense of uncertainty has been building up for years. It probably began with the global financial crisis of 2008-09. Yet, until 2020, there was hope that the world would somehow return to the right track and regain stability. Covid-19 ended this hope, devastating the global economy and exacerbating the pre-existing tensions between the incumbent hegemon (the United States) and a new super-power contender (China).

Thomas Sowell: U.S. could reach 'point of no return' under Biden
Economist and author Thomas Sowell warned that a Joe Biden presidency could be the "point of no return" for America. "If the election goes to Biden, there's a good chance that the Democrats will control [Congress] and considering the kinds of things that they're proposing, that could well be the point of no return for this country," he said in an interview that aired Sunday on "Life Liberty & Levin" with Mark Levin.
Like a raging mega-forest fire started by a single spark, the Memorial Day death of George Floyd ignited a nonstop conflagration of violent social upheaval, arson, rioting, looting, assault, shootings, desecration of historic monuments, demands to abolish the police and release incarcerated criminals - and explicit threats from ringleaders to literally "burn down" America.
Yet their alleged grievances - "systemic racism" and rampant "police brutality," strenuously reinforced daily by Democrat politicians, media organizations, "woke" corporations, "black leaders," college professors and radical groups - are cynical inventions of the power-obsessed socialist left.
