#WhiteHouse Could I please have 14•5M to invest in property? It is only 1/1,000th of the 14•5B additional dollars you want to give Israel and I promise I won't kill anyone with it. I may even be able to assist some.
Basically it was this from the White House that was just a small, but noticeable comment.
"The Vice President reiterated that under no circumstances will the United States permit the forced relocation of Palestinians from Gaza or the West Bank, the besiegement of Gaza, or the redrawing of the borders of Gaza."
When a group of pro-Palestine state legislators and activists launched a five-day hunger strike outside the #WhiteHouse this week, members of #Congress and major unions showed up in solidarity. The movement against Israel's war on Gaza keeps growing.
I’m quite exhausted,” admitted #socialist Zohran Mamdani yesterday, speaking by phone a few hours before ending a five-day hunger strike
"He is allowing for the starvation of the Palestinian people.”
Activists and state representatives are on hunger strike outside the White House to demand President Joe Biden call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

White House welcomes truce extension, ‘hopes’ it will be extended further
Congressional Republicans are trying to link their approval for the foreign military aid to stricter border policies after Joe Biden signed a stopgap bill extending funding for the U.S. government into early next year.
"I think it would be very difficult to get it done by the end of the year, and the impediment is the #WhiteHouse policy on the southern border," Turner has said.
Concerns echo #WhiteHouse remarks that blocking #HumanRights laws could undermine #NorthernIreland #peace process
Turns out that speaker #MikeJohnson likened #abortions to the #holocaust. This is not just some unhinged demagoguery of an evangelical #bigot, this is also a crass example of #antisemitism.
A second term for #Trump in the #WhiteHouse would be the end of #democracy in the #UnitedStates as we know it. It would also be a nightmare free of #humanrights for #migrants and yes: a massive setback for women's rights.

Statement from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden on the Passing of Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter
"The #WhiteHouse has reserved most of its ire for top #airlines, lambasting them for a raft of fees that #Biden has described as costly and unfair... the president explicitly blasted major carriers for charging #families extra to sit next to each other, prompting companies including American, Alaska and Frontier to end the practice soon after."
The fees together may cost #Americans at least $64 billion annually, according to a rough #WhiteHouse estimate, underscoring its efforts to deliver #financial relief to #families grappling with high prices."

#Israel has agreed to daily, 4-hour pauses in operations inside #Gaza to allow more #civilians to leave the northern part of the enclave & facilitate an increase in #HumanitarianAid entering from #Egypt, the #WhiteHouse said Thurs. The pauses are to begin “today,” #NSC spox #JohnKirby said.

President Biden said “he has not given up hope” on bringing #American #hostages taken by #Hamas home from #Gaza during remarks to a group of #Jewish community leaders at the #WhiteHouse. He also reinforced US support for #Israel, saying his commitment is “unshakeable.” Appearing alongside the president was second gentleman #DougEmhoff, who said he & the VP are “outraged at these horrific #terrorist attacks.”
Biden’s complete remarks:
At a #WhiteHouse event w/ #Jewish leaders that was focused on the #Israel-#Hamas #war & #antisemitism, President #Biden told the leaders that because of their dedication to the cause, “I think we have a chance to end this in a way that … makes it very difficult for it to be repeated.”
Second gentleman #DougEmhoff said at a #WhiteHouse event with #Jewish leaders that #Hamas’s actions are “a #terrorist assault.”
“There are no two sides to this issue,” #Emhoff said, adding that images of the attacks “will be seared in our brains forever … and all the while, we see videos of these terrorists cheering on these atrocities.”
“I’ve been doing this a long time,” President #Biden said at the #WhiteHouse. “I never really thought that I would see & have confirmed pictures of #terrorists beheading children.”

“We’ve seen …young women who were raped & massacred, combatants who were decapitated,” #Netanyahu said.
Later Wed, President #Biden expressed dismay over violent imagery coming out of the #Israel-#Hamas war at the earlier mentioned #WhiteHouse event w/ #Jewish leaders. In his remarks, Biden referred to the –internationally reported on & confirmed by several reputable news outlets– accounts of the beheadings of Israeli #children by Hamas #terrorists.
Peter Baker of the NYT said,
“That was one of the sharpest, even angriest condemnations of #terrorism in #Israel that I've ever heard from an #AmericanPresident in covering the #WhiteHouse since the 1990s.
#Biden offered no equivocation & made no effort to urge restraints on Israel's response.
He wanted to make sure there was no daylight between him & Israel at this time.”
President #Biden said Monday afternoon that the number of #UScitizens killed in the fighting had risen to 11. He also hinted that the number could climb.
“It’s heart-wrenching. These families have been torn apart by inexcusable hatred & violence,” Biden said in a statement released by the #WhiteHouse. “We also know that #American citizens still remain unaccounted for.”
"But the media and others struggle to understand how someone like #Trump — twice impeached with 91 pending felony #indictments, found in New York courtrooms to be both a rapist and a fraudster — has a 50-50 chance of returning to the #WhiteHouse.
...creating political mayhem is laying the groundwork for a #strongman to declare — as Trump did in 2016 — that “I alone can fix it.”"
But you are right, the memory does not last long. Without voters not making politicians accountable long-term, we're stuck in this limbo of divided government where no single policy position is given a long-term shot to prove its worth.
Regardless of what it is, it gets hobbled as soon as the other side is in power.
#KevinMcCarthy continues to #blame #Democrats & the #WhiteHouse for his #legislative shortcomings. “If they want to hold me liable because the Senate didn’t take it up or the president didn’t take it up — that’s politics,” he said of those who voted to oust him.

So close! The government actually needs to be funded 100% to stay open. Hope this helps.
The Republican House has already done what many in the media said was impossible—we voted to fund more than 70% of government spending. To date, the Senate has done zero.

To understand how radical this is, you need to know that for decades, the cable and telco sector has grabbed billions in subsidies for rural and underserved communities, and then either stole the money outright, or wasted it building *copper* networks that run at a fraction of a percent of fiber speeds.
