Here we go.

Macron, on visit to Israel [birthplace of Joe Biden! Says Joe Biden] tells Bibi to “prioritize hostage release”:

[paywalled, sorry]

And we know what that means, right?

I’m hearing that from a lot of people, but secondhand—I’m hearing that the Biden administration is telling Israel to slow down, according to multiple articles at Ace, allowing hostage negotiations and release, as you noted above. At the same time, Sundance linked to Tucker Carlson interviewing Col. Douglas Macgregor (retired), who says the politicians are calling for war. He claimed Blinken said to invade Gaza. I haven’t seen that video anywhere so I don’t know where Macgregor is getting that from. The closest I’ve seen is Blinken saying the US will respond if American personnel or armed forces become targets. Macgregor seems to be hearing something completely different here that I can’t find support for anywhere in the US political structure, except—

In the same Tucker Carlson video, they show video of Lindsay Graham calling for us to attack Iran, which seems stupid in the extreme. But again, online I can only find articles where he says *if* Iran escalates things, then we’ll attack

A lot of skewing of news is going on, and in this case it all seems to be coming from the GOPe voices. The fog is getting very thick.

"MacGregor" is the Scots word meaning "Seymour Hersh".  True story.

Which is to say, I think he's mostly full of sh*t.  

Apparently he also claimed on Tucker that US Special Ops had already done incursions into Gaza, and been "shot to pieces".  I don't believe this.

The Delta Forces that Biden brought into the White House and showed their pictures and tattoos—where were they being deployed or had been deployed? I don’t remember enough of that situation other than how stupid it was to show the faces of men going into fighting. (This lack of sleep is really screwing me up.)

And others agree with your viewpoint on Macgregor, in Reddit of all places.

I typed a lengthy reply to you, tried to post, page crashed.

In brief; not clear what the guys in the pic were there for; and I doubt we have spec ops boots on the ground, the IDF does quite well in that category.

So earlier in the day, I stepped out of my office building for a coffee, and saw that part of downtown had been papered on lampposts, streetlight posts, etc. with various pro-Pali wheat paste posters (including a bizarre one that shows an image of two bird, and the words "queer as in palestine"... huh?).

When I went back out out lunch, I saw the downtown improvement district guys with scrapers and Goo-Gone dutifully removing them.

That was... satisfying, though I'm sorry these poor schlubs have to clean up after the woke sh*tstains.

"Mr. Secretary-General, when will the Arabs make peace with the Israelis?"
