I got nothing today. I didn't sleep last night but still have to come to work. It's going to be a long, hard slog.

Well, there's this story, which simply demonstrates a level of stupidity that used to be rarely seen but now seems to be the norm: What Deficit Update: Chicago Has $9000 Cash for Every Migrant

But don't ask for money to actually fix the roads in a manner that lasts more than one winter season. No, can't have that. Don't ask the state for money to make improvements to city infrastructure. We'll just watch them throw it at immigrants so they can get apartments, and then when the money runs out they can squat and can't be evicted.

Oh--the EU has pledged to triple its funding of the Gaza, from $25 million to $75 million. They claim that Israel h as a right to defend itself, and claim "we are working hard to ensure that innocent civilians in Gaza are provided support in this context." 

What you aren't allowed to say is how all the money is being stolen and none of it gets to the people.

Iran shares chilling message for Israel after Gaza hospital explosion kills 500: ‘Time is OVER’

And I chilled because I'm 99.9999% sure this is a false flag.

Hamas / Iran would willing sacrifice 500 people, especially sick and injured because they take up resources, to turn the world against Israel.

IDF on LinkedIn is saying it was a Hamas Rocket that misfired and went off course.

IDF has a recording of Hamas talking about a failed launch.

The latest pictures show that what was hit was a parking lot. The whole thing is nonsense, but it doesn't matter because now thanks to American Pravda and its various affiliates it has become "truth."

Parking lot or hospital, Al Jazeera broadcast video of the rocket, launch, failure then warhead impact in Gaza.

I'll give Biden credit for rhetorically supporting Israel (so far), and even visiting them during a time of war.  I would not have expected this of him.

Of course, "will it last" is the question.

BBC (yeah, yeah, I know) roundup of the evidence.  

Among other things, look at the "crater".  If that was an IAF bomb... must've been an awfully smallish bomb.

Now, on the other hand... good freaking GRIEF.

The government clearly has a private preference for the Palestinians over Israel. At least, certain departments that are involved with international affairs.

State has been anti-semitic for at least the last 100 years. It's ingrained at foggy bottom.
