What kind of body armor does The Free Press suggest?

Asking for a friend.

What I like here is seeing the evolution of the authors of the Free Press and how they are discovering what many of us older types have figured out over a few decades. That the MIC, the NWO crowd, neo-cons, the central bankers, etc. fund BOTH sides of most wars. The UN, WHO, World Bank, IMF, etc. work diligently towards an end goal that is in print. UN people supporting the War and Hamas? Sure. What's different than tables full of UN people on our southern border handing out $1500-ish loaded debit cards along with navigation and legal advice on how to exist, illegally, in the U.S.? Party politics? We're way past that. The truth will set us free.

Let's not stoop to the level of stone throwers

"Ziad Asali, the founder of the American Task Force on Palestine, tweeted: “Agree. Maher Bitar is a dedicated public servant who had the talent and the skills to rise up the ranks both at NSC and Congress. His career provides a roadmap to success for motivated young people to follow. An eternal learner and #hardest worker who plays fair.”

Biden just appointed a former UNRWA official as Director of NSC Intelligence…is the timing a big F. U. to Israel and the countries that are complaining about the UNRWA’s participation in Oct 7? Aside from the security concerns surrounding this individual in a sensitive role.

Heaven help the US if they have to fight a real war

Many countries in the United Nations are Jew-hating. They condemn Israel but not terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbola. The US ought to get out of the UN, get the UN out of the US, and form a new organization of free democratic countries. Any real relief work the UN does could be done under other auspices, most likely with less corruption.

All of that was brought in by Obama. That was my baptism. They were removing George Washington from a church in Alexandria, Virginia. I contacted the National Trust for Historic Preservation and went to their website and I was shocked - it was already DEI just as we're seeing it today. The shame is, Trump had 4 years to do something about it. He did absolutely nothing, was too busy tweeting.

Smithsonian, National Trust, I used to support them, not any longer.

Anyone who doesn't appreciate the fact that we are at war is an idiot, imbecile or moron. The invasion of Ukraine & the barbaric Hamas attack on Israel are merely the opening salvo. American service "people" have been attacked, wounded & killed. It's only going to get worse. It's only a matter of time before China attacks Taiwan. The Biden administration needs to/must demonstrate that it has the will to respond appropriately & that means taking out Iran. Unfortunately the Biden administration considers re-election as paramount. The welfare of America is secondary. Biden has shown me nothing that one would consider remotely competent, but Biden is not Trump That's the rational for four more years. The UN as with its predecessor, the League of Nations, was created with high ideals but in reality became a forum for despots & weak nations. It's no surprise that UNRWA is Hamas & financially supported by many nations.

Barrett, you’re not making any sense. How would you suggest that Biden show any MORE support to Ukraine and Israel than he already has? It’s the Republican faction in the House that is holding up more support for Ukraine, egged on by Trump, so that Biden can’t have a “win”. THAT is treasonous, not the feverings about treason by your rabid right-wing posters. And Iran? Sure, the mullahs are a menace and are loathsome. But even if you are indifferent to the moral aspects of bombing Iranian civilians who have no say in how the mullahs run their country, take a look at its size: Iran is twice the size of Iraq, much bigger than France (for example). What would starting a bombing campaign achieve? Well, what it WOULD do is unite the Iranian people (who apparently love America) to defend their country; it would unite the world in condemnation of the U.S.; and it would please the Israeli right-wing. All good reasons not to do it. Obama (& Biden) take advice from their military and intelligence experts (as did Trump, the woofing and grandstanding not withstanding). It is self-indulgent amateur hour to preach that we “take out” Iran.

You're making false assumptions. I happen to be a liberal democrat although no longer a card carrying member. By liberal I mean "old school" not the idiocy that's become the Progressive democratic party. When I think of Biden's foreign policy I have visions of young people falling to their deaths while hanging on to a U.S. Air Force transport plane in Afghanistan. Biden has supplied arms to both Israel & Ukraine which I appreciate but there are reports that a substantial number of his administration want to limit military hardware to Israel. Thugs, despots, dictators, bullies only understand strength. They thrive on weakness. The Biden administration has consistently been reactive not proactive. History has shown this to be dangerous. Young Americans are in harms way. Young Israelis & Ukrainians are dying in proxy wars. As for Iran this is not 1944 where the 8th Air Force & RAF carpet bombed German cities, although it couldn't have happened to nicer people. We have the capability to take out Iranian nuclear facilities, military bases, rocket launchers, etc. without doing harm to innocent Iranians. There's a war in eastern Europe & in the middle east with a potential for a war in Asia. In 1938 France, England & the U.S. did everything possible in the way of appeasement to avoid a world war. We know how that turned out.

Oliver, would you care to comment on PM Netanyahu's statement that there will be no two-state solution? If you don't wish to comment, can you please ask someone around the office to do it? It is supposedly a news organization where you're working.

Can you imagine if they were found to be funding and supporting the KKK!!!!

BLM would be burning the UN down as we speak....and VP Harris and President Biden would be donating to a fund to keep the BLM rioters out of jail.....

But.....it's just a bunch of Jew Haters.....

Except democrats started the KKK. One of their deities Robert Byrd was a KKK grand kleagles. Joey and Hilary loved him. .

I wish Biden had a spine. Unfortunately, with the actions of Iran, we need to engage them in war. I can't believe Biden is actually trying to negotiate a nuclear treaty with Iran. When will he get his head out of the sand? November can't come fast enough.

The John Birch Society, back in the 60s, had a big campaign to get us out of the UN. Everyone thought they were right wing nut jobs. They were correct. The UN needs to move out of NY and go to Iran where they’ll be a better cultural fit. Not one more US dollar!

I'm tired to the bone.

I have spent the last three months or so being told that even being neutral about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is being "anti-semitic," so forgive me if unless I am given the exact text and exact circumstances I'm taking "they were teaching terrorism" with a grain of salt. Also, UNWRA employs *thousands* of people, thousands, and nearly two million people are depending on them.

You all keep screaming that what Israel is doing is *not* genocide. Well, now, because of some dubious allegations that a few people out of *thousands* did something, you are now suggesting it's not only okay but *absolutely necessary* that we stop supporting shipments of food and medical aid to two million people in Gaza. If that is not a deliberate attempt to thin their numbers and kill them off, I don't know what is.

I keep being told we need to support Israel because of the Holocaust (never mind that Israel is *just* a country and large numbers of Jews themselves disagree with the Zionist philosophy, especially as it's manifesting itself in Israel). But Israel is spitting on the the memories of those who died in the Holocaust (not just the Jews who died) by this effort to obliterate the Palestinians.

I'd tell you, you should be ashamed, but I don't think anyone in leadership in Israel nor anyone supporting them has any shame left.

They're trying to obliterate Hamas. If Palestine was their target they would have been firing missiles at them daily for years.

Expand full comment

Yeah, keep telling yourself that. When was the last time we leveled a neighborhood in a big city to "get" a gang.

Expand full comment

So Hamas is now just a run-of-the-mill gang? Like the cripts or bloods?

You gotta be kidding, or you're grossly blinded by reality and sick to the bone.

How about publish a video of gangs cutting a fetus out of the mother's womb, then killing both it and Mom?

Or burning alive entire families in their homes, after raiding the fridge?

Maybe gang-raping young women, then mutilating their bodies for public display?

Cutting off a woman's breast then playing kick ball with it....any of

Do us all a favor and drown yourself in the pondscum from whence you came.

Have you even bothered to look at the images out of Gaza?

And, yes, I've heard the babies in ovens and beheaded babies stories, and you know what? They all turned out to be lies. Even the IDF admits they don't have proof of widespread rape (and if you are this upset about rape, maybe spend some time patrolling the New York Subways a little closer to home).

Sure, Lillia, and the Holocaust never happened, OJ Simpson is innocent, and Joe Biden never took a bribe.

Expand full comment

The Holocaust happened, and the Israelis are committing genocide. Both things are true, independently of each other, though the irony is not lost on any of us with two brain cells to put together.

Expand full comment

Firing missiles daily. Like what hamas and Hezbollah do to Israel daily.

But I assume since Lillia hasn’t exactly seen that happen herself, she most likely thinks it doesn’t happen.

Expand full comment

Ah, yes, Israel has done absolutely nothing to the Palestinians in all that time. Not one thing. It's not like they control their food, their water, their communications. But I suppose since you haven't seen *that* and haven't been looking for it, it's not happening. You need to get off the Free Press for a little while and go do some more research.

I know, it’s just horrible the Palis took those kabillions of dollars and Instead of ginning up their own desalination plants, and agriculture and power plants, they spent it on weapons, rockets and tunnels. If only they had known their murderous intentions would like backfire on them. But then they’d have had to have two brain cells to rub together amiright?

Sounds like someone needs to do research, and it ain’t me. Have a blessed day.

Yes, I take someone seriously who uses the word kabillions. SMH. Go do some reading.

I think it's called "biting the hand that feeds you".

Why does Israel control these basic services? Oh! Because the poor Pals took boatloads of money to develop them, but instead dug a bunch of tunnels and filled them with rocket factories and hate. Israel doesn't owe them shit

Expand full comment

Israel owes them the land they live on. It was theirs when "Israel" was founded. How would you feel if someone kicked you out of your home? It's no different.

And they control the services so they can control the people and do exactly what they are doing: hide their misdeeds and starve the people out.

The tunnels came as a reaction to what Israel is doing. A people that feel backed into a corner will react badly, just as you would.

If someone kicked me out of my dilapidated home I couldn't manage and then proceeded to turn it into an opulent, productive manor, I think I'd just go into business with them.

And learn to generate my own electricity. That's not as hard as constructing underground tunnel bunkers
