Restaurants and venues owned by white men will be last in line for federal relief under President Joe Biden’s “Restaurants Revitalization Fund” (RRF), prioritizing funds for women and minority groups first.
The headlines from Sheikh Jarrah almost all ignore the basic facts of the issue: The buildings in question are owned by Jews and the Arab residents have refused to pay rent – even though they had agreed in a 1982 court case.As NGO Monitor summarizes:According to the Supreme Court, the land in question “was owned by Chief Rabbi (Hacham Bashi) Avraham Ashkenazi and Chief Rabbi..

“What is written in the general’s letter is a reality. When you have a country plagued by urban guerrilla warfare, when you have a very regular and very high terrorist threat, when you have more and more glaring and flagrant inequalities, when you have a part of our patriots who are breaking up from society, we cannot say that the country is doing well.” — Rachida Dati, mayor of the 7th arrondissement of Paris and former Justice Minister .
“These harmful drifts do not result from a moment of distraction but from a political direction driven by fundamentally corrupting ideological considerations.” — Marine Le Pen, French presidential candidate.
It’s not as if he or the previous terrorist, Yasser Arafart, ever beat around the bush about it. These people are single-minded. Their aim is no different from that of Hamas and Islamic Jihad – the destruction of Israel.
When looking at the political world of Woke, we can’t discount the foolishness of religious clerics who regard themselves as ‘progressive’. They have abandoned the pages of the Bible to embrace virtue-signalling and the self-serving impression that by supporting new left-wing causes this somehow makes them ‘compassionate’. I am writing this from Newcastle where the ‘progressive’ Anglican Bishop Peter Stuart appeared at a parliamentary hearing last year to oppose my Religious Freedom Bill.
That’s right, he caved in to the wild propaganda of the LGBTIQ lobby to oppose provisions in the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act stopping discrimination against people on the grounds of their religious faith. He advocated against the interests of his own flock.The LGBTIQ activists look at Stuart as what Lenin famously described as a ‘useful idiot’. He does their work for them: preserving human rights for gays and transgenders, but nobody else. That’s the real bigotry here.
Now another foolish, misguided cleric has emerged: Catholic Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen of Parramatta. Parents in the Catholic schools of the Parramatta Diocese have been voting with their feet. The new-age teaching philosophies at Parramatta introduced by a wacky old Leftie, Greg Whitby, have driven down academic results and parents have taken their children out of the schools. The Parramatta Diocese’s share of local school enrolments has collapsed.
More of the same woke BS:
Snow White and the intellectual dwarves
Snow White and her handsome prince are the most recent victims of the humourless woke scolds on the Left and cancel culture. A revamped Snow White ride at Disneyland is being criticised by a Californian media outlet the San Francisco Gate, for a non-consensual ‘true love’ kiss.
Could there be a more perfect metaphor for not only the multiple failures of the Andrews Labor government but also the broader Left’s destruction of Australia than the ongoing Victorian hotel quarantine saga? The latest horrors, exposed by the Australian newspaper during the week, include numerous telling incidents that go way beyond the manifest incompetence of the quarantine program itself.
Sporting the fashionable blond locks and surfie stubble made popular by Victoria’s hapless chief medical officer Brett Sutton, we now have the head of the quarantine program itself, Matiu Bush, accused of twice flouting his own guidelines. What is most revealing about the allegations is not so much the infringements themselves, but the claim that Mr Bush – who has subsequently been stood down – apparently saw himself as being above his own rules, choosing to ‘override the protocols’ when they didn’t suit his own personal convenience.
Here we have a textbook example of the classic behaviour of every socialist or totalitarian bureaucrat: one rule for the masses, but a wave of the hand exemption for the person in authority. From the corridors of the Kremlin to the holiday homes on Hunan island, this is the inevitable result of the collectivist ‘we know what’s best for you even though we ourselves don’t need to do it’ approach that has typified the Covid pandemic, with a blind eye being turned to Black Lives Matter protest marches but fences being put up to stop the Diggers from celebrating Anzac Day.
Mitt Romney being booed by republican delegates in his home state. Liz Cheney being replaced by Elise. Frank Luntz exposed as a fraud. We’re witnessing the final collapse of the RINO’s. The party is becoming solidly America First. The party is doubling down as the party of Trump.

That crisis is marked by unjust inequities in maternal mortality, illness, and premature birth,” Wheeler asserts, “with worse rates for Black, Indigenous, and other women of color than white women, and for women living in poverty compared to the better-off.”
