Netanyahu and Gantz Agree On West Bank Annexation Plan

From Haaretz Netanyahu and Gantz have agreed on a plan to annex the West Bank.  All that's left is to negotiate the details and pass the plan in the Knesset. "Once approved by the cabinet, a proposal to apply Israeli sovereignty over parts of the West Bank would also require approval by the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, and then the full Knesset." Right-wing settler parties have expressed concern that language in the proposal requires American approval first: "Gantz and Netanyahu, until recently political rivals who faced off in Israel's March 2 election, agreed that...

Dems Impeach Trump Over Nothing, While Ignoring His Real Crimes

On FPF #432, I explain my view that the Democrats' case for impeaching Trump is very weak. The House passed two articles of impeachment this week, although House leadership is now preventing those from going to the Senate. While everyone is distracted with these potential minor crimes committed by Trump, there are major news stories breaking around the world. I cover several of those stories in the second half of the show. Many of those stories are about actual serious crimes Trump is committing.  Links NDAA The 2020 NDAA requires the DNI to release a report on who is responsible for the...

4 Reasons Why Socialism Is Becoming More Popular

The newfound openness of large numbers of Americans to socialism is, by now, a well-documented phenomenon. According to a Gallup poll from earlier this year, 43% of Americans now believe that some form of socialism would be a good thing, in contrast to 51% who are still against it. A Harris poll found that four in ten Americans prefer socialism to capitalism. The trend is particular apparent in the young: another Gallup poll showed that as recently as 2010, 68% of people between 18 and 29 approved of capitalism, with only 51% approving of socialism, whereas in 2018, while the percentage...

The Militarization Of The American Mind

It's become obvious the government (mainly the security state) wants to completely take over social media (they probably have already).  Now ICE is going to use fake accounts to monitor the social media of foreigners seeking to enter the country.  Eventually, this program will expand, they always do. Homeland Security explained the change to the AP in a statement Friday, stating that fake accounts would make it easier for agents reviewing visa, green card and citizenship applications to search for fraud or security threats.  Even though this goes against Facebook and Twitter policy and...
