More on fake president/real gangster Joe Biden quitting; “historian” Jon Meacham lies about all of it on nbc

GRA: Jon Meacham, “a presidential historian” gushed about biden on nbc (of course), saying biden’s decision to not seek re-election, “put the nation first.” (Many chuckles).

Meacham admitted to being “a friend of biden’s, though I’m not a democrat (he sounded like one), and my opinion is that this decision is based on supporting the Constitution.”

[N.S.: He’s a democrat.]

The b.s. never stops. The dems put Brandon’s head (and Jill’s) in a vise grip and turned it, until he cried “UNCLE.”

That’s the bottom line here. Nothing else.

GRA: v.p. nominee, J.D.Vance and senator Josh Hawley both posted comments about Joe Biden’s capabilities as president [sic] for the next five months saying, “If he isn’t able to run for re-election, how can he be president? RESIGN.”

fake president/real gangster Joe Biden, who is only in the white house due to The Big Steal, has dropped out of the 2024 presidential race; will speak later in the week

By Grand Rapids Anonymous

“(usatoday) Washington − president [sic] Joe Biden said sunday he is ending his bid for reelection amid intense pressure from democratic leaders sounding the alarm that his path to beat former [sic] President Donald Trump in november has vanished.

“the president’s [sic] historic withdrawal throws the 2024 race − already roiled by a shocking attempt on Trump’s life − into uncertain territory, with vice president [sic] Kamala Harris seen as the democrat best placed to take Biden’s place atop the party’s ticket.

“Biden made the announcement from his home in Rehoboth beach, del., where he’s self-isolated since testing positive for covid-19 thursday night.

“‘it has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your president [sic],’ Biden said in a written statement. ‘and while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and my country for me to stand down and to focus solely on my duties as President for the rest of my term.”

“in his statement, Biden reflected fondly on his four years [illegally] in office, saying the U.S. has built the ‘strongest economy in the world’ while touting efforts to lower prescription drug prices, expand health care, tackle climate change and appointing the first black woman to the supreme court, justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

“he extended gratitude to vice president [sic] Kamala Harris for being an ‘extraordinary partner’ on sunday and said he’s offering ‘my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year.

“‘I believe today what I always have: that there is nothing American [sic] can’t do – when we do it together. We just have to remember we are the United State [sic] of America,’ Biden said.

“the president [sic] said he would speak to the nation later this week to provide more detail about his decision.

“it marks an extraordinary turn for Biden, who for three weeks remained defiant in the face of growing calls from democratic lawmakers that he withdraw after a disastrous june 27 debate with Trump raised scrutiny over the president’s [sic] mental fitness.”

Red Lies: Red Eddie Muller’s “intro” and “outro” to I Married a Communist/The Woman on Pier 13 (1949/1950) (video)

[TCM’s Film Noir of the Week Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at Midnight and 10 a.m. et is Roy Del Ruth’s Red Light (1949) with George Raft, Virginia Mayo, Gene Lockhart, Henry (Harry) Morgan, Raymond Burr, Arthur Franz and Barton MacLane.”]

By Nicholas Stix

In advance of Muller broadcasting The Woman on Pier 13 (1949) on Noir Alley, my old friend and partner-in-crime David wrote,
“We’ll see what Red Eddie Muller does with this one. Years ago, the late Robert Osborne showed it in prime time and blasted it with the usual epithets— ‘Paranoia,’ ‘Witch Hunts,’ ‘Failed at the box office,’ etc.

“Robert Ryan was, as you said, a ‘crypto-communist,’ whom Eddie will slobber over. Laraine Day was a conservative Republican, very anti-Communist. We’ll see what Red Eddie says about her.”
Red Eddie: “Some viewers have complained that I’m going out of my way to bring politics into what’s supposed to be an escape from reality.

“Well, here’s my problem with that line of thinking. The film noir era, which is the main but not exclusive focus of this program, took place between 1946 and 1954.

“Not coincidentally, HUAC’s hearings into possible Communist influence in Hollywood, began in 1947. Witch-hunt hysteria was soon rampant, and many people lost their livelihoods merely by being suspected of Communist sympathies. The furor dominated the culture until December of 1954, when the Senate voted to censure Senator Joseph McCarthy, who steamrolled to national notoriety, by bearing the torch as the nation’s leading anti-Commie witch-hunter.

“The threat of blacklisting affected virtually everyone in Hollywood, creating a climate of deceit and distrust that played a major part in the rise of film noir. While studios largely shied away from political issues, certain themes and emotions engendered by anti-Communist hysteria, paranoia and betrayal most prominently, definitely found their way into the movies, especially crime pictures.

“To ignore or willfully erase the politics of the era, is to completely miss the context in which the films were created. It’s like discussing the allies’ triumph in WWII, while simultaneously denying the Holocaust ever happened.

“When oil and aviation magnate Howard Hughes, a vehement anti-Communist, took over RKO in 1948, the first project put into production was I Married a Communist [N.S.: later re-named The Woman on Pier 13], based on a script by little-known George Slaven and George W. George, rumored to be a well-known writer working under an alias.

“The script had been rejected by Eagle-Lion Pictures, but Hughes bought it to use as a sort of litmus test. He assigned various writers and directors to work on it, using their enthusiasm or lack of it to judge their political leanings. According to Joseph Losey, one of several directors who passed on the project, it was an untenable situation. Several directors, including John Cromwell and Nicholas Ray, declined simply because the script was bad, unfinished, and borderline incoherent. Over the course of 14 months or so, numerous writers were brought on to knock I Married a Communist into filmable shape, including John Edward Grant [sic; James Edward Grant], Charlie Grayson, Art Cohen and Herman Mankiewicz. In the end, veteran journeyman Robert Hardy Andrews produced the final shooting draft.

“Merle Oberon was originally set to play the role that was played by Laraine Day, and Janice Carter was borrowed from Columbia, to replace Jane Greer, who’d provoked Hugheses’ ire, by daring to get married, a decision that led the jealous Hughes to briefly blacklist her at the studio, where she was under contract.

“Robert Ryan, possibly the most liberal actor in Hollywood, later said he’d only agreed to play the lead role, because he feared that Hughes would ruin his career otherwise. Hughes had hoped to gain attention by having RKO be the first studio to release an anti-Communist film, but by the time the picture was previewed, in late 1949, the market was already awash in anti-Red sentiment. The Red Danube, The Iron Curtain, and The Red Menace, had all beaten I Married a Communist to American movie screens. The film flopped in its early, limited release, and a bewildered Hughes spent months searching for a new title, before re-releasing the film in the summer of 1950 under its new name.

“It’s a cinematic curio from a very strange time in Hollywood history. Here is The Woman on Pier 13.”

N.S.: There never was any “witch-hunt hysteria” or “anti-Communist hysteria.” I’m unaware of anyone who lost his livelihood “merely by being suspected of Communist sympathies,” and Red Eddie doesn’t name any such people. “The threat of blacklisting affected virtually everyone in Hollywood…” That’s another lie. John Wayne, John Ford, Howard Hawks, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, et al. were never under any such threat. Patriots like Ward Bond, conversely, were, as communists sought revenge for Bond’s fight against Communism, and Stepin Fetchit (Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, 1902-1985) was blacklisted for 19 years, due to pressure from black supremacists (aka “civil rights” activists), and was only able to resume his career by submitting to and joining the black supremacist murder cult, the nation of islam.) Red Eddie: “… certain themes and emotions engendered by anti-Communist hysteria, paranoia and betrayal most prominently, definitely found their way into the movies, especially crime pictures.”

Paranoia and betrayal are central to crime movies, because they’re central to criminals. Many crime pictures of the time Red Eddie was speaking were themselves written or produced by Communists. Red Eddie: “To ignore or willfully erase the politics of the era, is to completely miss the context in which the films were created. It’s like discussing the allies’ triumph in WWII, while simultaneously denying the Holocaust ever happened.”

Red Eddie twists the life of Howard Hughes, just as he twists everything of political relevance, depicting Hughes as if his anti-Communism were his worst personal characteristic. Actually, Howard Hughes was a vicious man and an incompetent studio owner (he destroyed RKO) whose anti-Communism was one of his few redeeming characteristics. (E.g., he produced Jet Pilot, directed by Josef von Sternberg and starring John Wayne, in 1949, but let it gather dust on the shelf until releasing it in 1957, by which time it was technologically obsolete.) Red Eddie: “Robert Ryan, possibly the most liberal actor in Hollywood, later said he’d only agreed to play the lead role, because he feared that Hughes would ruin his career otherwise.”

Translation: Robert Ryan was possibly the most rabidly Communist of all actors in Hollywood. (He knew better than to join the Party, so he was never blacklisted, just as other crypto-Communists like his friend Richard Brooks, whom Ryan knew from the War, when he and Brooks were both “respectable” shirkers, were also not blacklisted.)

Hughes didn’t ruin people’s careers over their politics; he did so for entirely capricious reasons.

“The script had been rejected by Eagle-Lion Pictures, but Hughes bought it to use as a sort of litmus test.”

If that were so, then the screenwriters and directors (Muller cited John Cromwell and Nicholas Ray) who refused to work on the script would all have landed on the “blacklist.” But they didn’t. Only Joseph Losey, of the men Muller listed, would later be blacklisted, but that wasn’t because he refused to work on the script in question. Losey was a member of the Communist Party USA. He was also an awful director who would later, in England, specialize in decadence (Darling, 1965).

As David in TN observed,

“Last week with The Woman on Pier 13’s intro Red Eddie went over the top. He threw in ‘Holocaust Deniers,’ regarding those who don’t worship the ‘blacklist victims.’”

N.S.: Red Eddie’s playing of the Holocaust card was just sick.

Red Eddie: “To ignore or willfully erase the politics of the era…” That is exactly what Red Eddie is doing.

But I’ll see his Holocaust card, and raise him the Soviet Holocaust, which was many times worse than Hitler’s Holocaust of the Jews.

Hitler slaughtered some six million Jews in the Holocaust, but between Stalin’s Ukrainian Holodomor and Russian Holocaust, he slaughtered some 20 million civilians. And that’s not even including his war crimes, in which his troops raped and slaughtered hundreds of thousands of German civilians.

The American Communists whom Red Eddie depicts as “blacklist victims” sought to do to America what Stalin did to the USSR. They wanted to imprison tens of millions of Americans in gulags, slaughter tens of millions, and steal everyone else’s private property.

Norma and Ben Barzman, and Adrian and Anne Scott, were just a few names of Reds, some of whom (especially crime movie producer Adrian Scott) were lionized by Muller.

The worst thing about the politics of the postwar Reds is that once republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Senate turned on Sen. Joseph McCarthy, one of America’s greatest patriots, the Communists began taking over, often hiding behind the so-called “civil rights” movement. Today, “America” is a racial socialist/Communist country.

The problem isn’t that Red Eddie brings politics into his discussions of postwar crime movies, it’s that that he perpetually lies about the politics and the history.

I Married a Communist/The Woman on Pier 13: Red Eddie Muller’s Intro and Outro

Ah, the joys of criminal immigration; gypsy father demands his children back, his people burn down Leeds, and engage in orgies of violence, with the support of political leaders, who have handcuffed bobbies, and daily mail editor-in-chief Ted Verity, who has depicted the criminal gypsies (pardon the redundancy) as victims of "prejudice"

"Leeds riots: Sobbing father breaks down and begs for his children back after Roma crowd take to streets again following night of terrifying violence"

"The family gathered in front of the wreckage of a burnt-out double decker bus in Harehills, Leeds to appeal for the return of their children"

I told you they were gypsies.

Kamala Harris’s indian cousins from the sub-continent.

N.S.: After one of the parents' four children dropped a nine-month-old infant on "its" (Ted Verity's English) head and almost murdered "it," the police removed all four children from the home. That's when the gypsies commenced with ultra-violent riots and arson.

Although the gypsies have a history of such riots in england, I have not read of any of them ever being deported for such mass violence.

Thomas Crooks = Travis Bickle? Was Crooks a “neutral” assassin? He may have hated all politicians equally, and President Trump was conveniently available

(N.S.: In Martin Scorcese and Paul Schrader’s 1976 thriller, Taxi Driver, protagonist Travis Bickle is a raging, isolated loner who seeks to become famous by assassinating a liberal, Bobby Kennedy-style political candidate, but who later switches to rescuing a damsel in distress, a very underaged sex slave-prostitute. Bickel kills the girl’s black pimp and his front man. Correction: Schrader wrote the role realistically, as a black pimp, but the studio, Columbia, forced Scorcese to change the role to an unrealistic, Puerto Rican pimp.

Scorcese was mocking America’s White working class through his and Schrader’s straw man Travis Bickel character, especially when their straw man public embraced Bickel as a hero, after he killed the two criminals who kept the young White girl as a slave. Scorcese fancied that he was dealing in “irony,” when he was really dealing in glibness. He couldn’t appreciate how an otherwise bad guy could become, under certain circumstances, a hero. Shakespeare could have explained it all to him, but I guess Scorcese knew better.)

“(zh) investigators are reportedly still uncertain about Crooks’ specific motivation. his internet search history indicates he’d not only examined Trump’s campaign schedule, but also the upcoming democratic national convention in chicago, which starts on aug 19. he also sought images of both Trump and president [sic] Biden. officials have told federal lawmakers that Crooks had a hatred of politicians in general, and didn’t have a distinct political profile or ideology of his own.

Jewish Insider's Melissa Weiss was at the scene shortly after the attack, which occurred shortly after 3 a.m. local time. One person was killed and 10 wounded in the attack. The Houthis in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack, which did not activate any sirens and was not shot down; the IDF has attributed its failure to identify the drone as a threat to human error. Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, the IDF spokesperson, said a preliminary investigation indicated that the drone was an Iranian UAV, upgraded to fly from Yemen to Israel.
  • Secretary of State Tony Blinken kicks off a packed morning on the final day of the Aspen Security Forum. Blinken, who will be in conversation with NPR's Mary Louise Kelly, is expected to touch on a number of issues, including the Biden administration's handling of the Israel-Hamas war and Washington's part in efforts to broker a cease-fire and hostage-release.
  • Following Blinken's session, Sens. Chris Coons (D-DE), Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and John Cornyn (R-TX) will participate in a panel on "The View from the Senate." Following that, Anne Neuberger, the deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security advisor for cyber and emerging technology, will join a panel titled "Securing Trust in the Global Digital Economy: Cyber, Fraud, and Emerging Threat." Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. CQ Brown and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will also sit for separate fireside chats on the confab's last day.

What You Should Know

Former President Donald Trump's 90-minute acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee — which ended just after midnight on the East Coast — began on an uplifting note as he called for unity days after surviving an attempted assassination at a rally in Pennsylvania, Jewish Insider's Matthew Kassel reports from the final night of the GOP confab.

But in his first public remarks since the shooting, Trump soon went off message in a subdued and largely meandering address that showed the former president returning to more abrasive rhetoric and improvised riffs — including an extended encomium to Viktor Orbán, the Hungarian prime minister and strongman — that fell flat with the crowd.

He invoked a well-worn epithet to criticize Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), calling her "crazy Nancy Pelosi," and attacked Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) as "a lightweight" while plugging her GOP challenger, Sam Brown, who was present at the convention. And he laid into President Joe Biden, who is facing growing calls from his party to step away from the race, even as Trump's team had reportedly vowed that he would not use his opponent's name in his speech.

One high point came near the end of the address, which was the longest convention speech in history, as Trump called for the American hostages now held by Hamas in Gaza to be returned — a theme of the previous night. "To the entire world, I tell you this, we want our hostages back," Trump said to applause — as well as what sounded like a shofar blowing from the floor of the convention. "And they better be back before I assume office, or you will be paying a very big price." 

Trump otherwise fell short of advancing substantive proposals for addressing the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East and Ukraine — aside from a promise to "end every single international crisis that the current administration has created."

In an earlier speech on Thursday evening, Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), the chairman of Senate Republicans' campaign arm, also dinged the Biden administration for its handling of the Israel-Hamas war. "An America First majority is going to stand with Israel," he pledged.

And Mike Pompeo, who served as secretary of state under Trump, accused Biden as well as Vice President Kamala Harris of "providing appeasement to" what he called "the pro-Hamas radicals on our streets."

In a nod to the isolationist wing of the Republican Party, meanwhile, Tucker Carlson, the incendiary right-wing commentator who lobbied Trump to pick Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) as his running mate, used his speaking slot to inveigh against U.S. funding to Ukraine, which he said has come at the expense of countering the fentanyl crisis at home. "You don't see our commander-in-chief suggesting that we use our military to protect our country or the lives of its citizens," he said to cheers from the crowd. "No. That's for Ukraine."

On a warmer note near the end of Trump's speech, he thanked his family members for joining him at the convention as it concluded on Thursday night, including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner — who have publicly distanced themselves from the former president in recent years. The pro-Israel megadonor Miriam Adelson, who is bankrolling a super PAC to boost Trump, was also seated in a box further up in the hall.

Jewish Democrats cautiously cheer a potential Josh Shapiro ticket


As pressure mounts for President Joe Biden to step aside, Pennsylvanians and pundits have their attention focused on the state's governor, Josh Shapiro: Could the popular Democrat be elevated to serve as a running mate to Kamala Harris, or even to top the ticket? Jewish Democrats regard the possibility of Shapiro, a proudly Jewish politician who ran a TV ad showing his family celebrating Shabbat, serving as president or vice president with excitement — and a dash of trepidation, Jewish Insider's Gabby Deutch reports.

Bigger meaning: "Jews are always split between being both proud and concerned," said Larry Ceisler, a public affairs executive in Pennsylvania. The hype surrounding Shapiro, who won by a landslide in 2022, is not new. For years, discussing whether Shapiro might be the first Jewish president has been something of a parlor game in Jewish political circles. But now that the hypothetical is becoming slightly closer to a realistic situation, American Jews are considering what it would mean for a Jewish politician to be on the ballot for president or vice president, especially given today's charged climate of rising antisemitism in the wake of Oct. 7 and the Israel's war against Hamas in Gaza.

Linda Sarsour and Marc Lamont Hill speak at 'Jews for Cori' Bush fundraiser


Linda Sarsour and Marc Lamont Hill, two controversial far-left activists with histories of antisemitism and strident anti-Israel stances, headlined a virtual fundraiser on Wednesday night for Rep. Cori Bush's (D-MO) reelection campaign organized by far-left groups including Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow, Jewish Insider's Marc Rod reports.

Also involved: Other organizers and speakers on the call, convened by a group calling itself "Jews for Cori," included Beth Miller, political director of JVP Action; INN spokesperson Eva Borgwardt; Abbas Alawieh, Bush's former congressional chief of staff and a spokesperson for the Uncommitted campaign; and anti-Zionist Jewish activist Naomi Klein, a longtime member of JVP.

Bonus: AIPAC's United Democracy Project super PAC announced an additional $1 million in spending in Bush's congressional district yesterday, bringing it up to $5.8 million so far, with nearly three weeks to go until the primary.

Minneapolis rematch

Pro-Israel groups steering clear of Ilhan Omar, to her rival's frustration


Following Rep. Jamaal Bowman's (D-NY) landslide defeat last month, leading pro-Israel groups that spent heavily to help unseat him have now turned their focus to the next vulnerable Squad member on the primary calendar, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), who is also seeking to fend off a well-funded challenger. Some pro-Israel activists, however, are also wondering why those groups haven't engaged in what has so far remained a more low-profile House race in Minneapolis, where Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is preparing for a rematch against Don Samuels, a former city councilman who almost pulled off a surprise upset last election cycle against one of the most outspoken Israel critics in the House, Jewish Insider's Matthew Kassel reports.

Samuels says: With early voting already underway in the Aug. 13 primary, a week after Bush's race concludes, the matchup has yet to draw outside spending from national pro-Israel groups, which at this stage have announced plans to target only a small handful of Democratic incumbents in the current election cycle. "I think it's a mistake for anybody who sees the direction the country is going in, who sees Ilhan's role in it in terms of the divisiveness in general and, in this specific case, the challenges in the Middle East that are so fraught," Samuels, now 75, said in an interview with JI last week, accusing Omar's rhetoric toward Israel of "exacerbating those tensions."

In Middle East session, regional figures lay out prospects for peace

Aspen Security Forum

At the Aspen Security Forum yesterday, Middle Eastern officials and former leaders laid out their visions for a path forward in Gaza, Israel and the wider region, Jewish Insider's Marc Rod reports from the convention.

Strategy session: Amos Yadlin, the former head of the IDF's military intelligence directorate, said that Israel needs to "redefine the goals of the war" in Gaza against Hamas, while offering strong criticism of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "This is the time to say enough is enough with Gaza, bring back these people — it's important to our national unity and sense of security — and start to solve the strategic problem that this war created," Yadlin said. Read more here.

Palestinian perspective: Salam Fayyad, the former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority seen as a reformist, argued that Hamas should be brought into the Palestine Liberation Organization and that the U.S. should support a United Nations Security Council resolution backing Palestinians' right to statehood. "Hamas is a political movement and ideology," Fayyad said. "The only way you can deal with the political ideology is to have a competitive ideology that is seen as competitive by the people." Read more here.

Firm friends: Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Bahrain's national security advisor, said his country remains committed to the Abraham Accords despite regional backlash toward Israel and is "proud" to be part of U.S. and Israeli cooperative military efforts. Asked why his country remains committed to the Abraham Accords despite intense anger in the Arab world over Israel's operations in Gaza, Al Khalifa described the normalization agreement as "one of the most important milestones that we have achieved." Read more here.

Also at Aspen: Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state during the Bush administration, said that the Republican Party has shifted away from the Reaganite views on foreign policy that dominated the Bush years. Rice said that conservative internationalists need to "start to think, what of the international position do we need to preserve in order to play the role that we always have, which is providing a balance of power."

Cardin: U.S. 'could do more' to seek justice for victims of AMIA bombing


Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) vowed on Thursday that the United States remained committed to supporting Argentina in ensuring accountability for the bombings in the 1990s of the Associación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) and the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires. Cardin, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, led a delegation to Buenos Aires this week to commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Argentina, in which 29 people were killed, and the 30th anniversary of the AMIA bombing, the latter of which left 85 people dead. Reps. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Brad Schneider (D-IL) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) joined Cardin on the delegation, Jewish Insider's Emily Jacobs reports.

Pressure push: Maryland's senior senator, who is retiring at the end of this term, told JI in an interview that victims cannot have closure without justice being served, and that the U.S. "could do more" to ensure that outcome. "The [Interpol] Red Notices need to be complied with and they need to be extended. I think we can help in making that a reality because they expire shortly. We need to put pressure on other governments to enforce the Red Notice. We need to have timely interactions so that people who are accountable, who are responsible, can be actually apprehended and held for their crimes. So yes, I think the United States could do more," Cardin said.

State Department statement: U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken's statement condemning antisemitism on the 30th anniversary of the AMIA attack included a mention of Islamophobia and hate crimes against Muslims.

Emhoff says WH will 'soon' release new guidance on combating Islamophobia


Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff said on Thursday that the Biden administration plans to soon release new guidance on best practices for combating Islamophobia. Emhoff revealed the news while kicking off a roundtable on "interfaith coalition building" he convened with a group of religious leaders at the White House, after noting that many of those participating in Thursday's meeting are "part of the interagency group that the president stood up to counter antisemitism and also Islamophobia," Jewish Insider's Emily Jacobs reports.

Coming soon: "The first deliverable, in May of 2023, was the first-ever national strategy to counter antisemitism. We are now getting into year two with additional actions. There will be an Islamophobia plan coming out soon as well, and making sure we are fighting hate wherever it exists," Emhoff said after touting the administration's efforts to "counter hate and restore unity."

"Carlson is trying to expand his reach outside the U.S. He says he's negotiating an interview with Xi Jinping of China and will soon visit Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince and de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. He has repeatedly requested an interview with Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine but wants to conduct it in a third country because he believes (without offering any evidence) that Ukrainian intelligence is trying to kill him.

A Spy's Secrets: In Tablet, Martin Sivak spotlights José Pérez, a spy from Argentina's Federal Police who infiltrated the country's Jewish community and likely played a role in the AMIA bombing 30 years ago. "From the AMIA bombing on, according to his version of events, he has felt an unbearable guilt for having funneled material that might have served in planning the attack or in the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires in March 1992, which resulted in 22 people killed and more than 240 wounded. In both cases — the embassy and the AMIA bombings — Pérez delivered building characteristics, access points, hours, schedules, security systems, weak points, and methods for entering and exiting without detection. He himself entered both buildings several times before and after the attacks." [Tablet]
