'Make sure Biden loses': Michigan's Arab, Muslim Democrats push for `uncommitted' vote over Gaza | MEMO |

Michigan Representative, Rashida Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American serving in Congress, has encouraged voters to use their primary ballot as a form of protest against the Biden administration's support for Israel and opposition to a ceasefire in Gaza, where Israeli attacks have now killed nearly 30,000 Palestinians.

"If you want us to be louder, come here and vote uncommitted," Tlaib said in a video message, standing outside a voting location in Dearborn.

The video was posted by the Listen to Michigan campaign, which aims to get 10,000 "uncommitted" votes and convey a warning to the Biden campaign ahead of the November election. Ohio Senator, Nina Turner, has also endorsed the campaign.

There are more than 310,000 people of Middle Eastern and North African descent living in Michigan, about 3.1 per cent of the population of this key swing state, according to 2020 census data.

Joe and the "former President" do have a lot more in common than their old age and lack of wisdom and true American patriotism. Joe took Donald's AmericaFirst! the the next higher level and rebuked/bullied allies into two wars. NATO is still brain dead and even Macron caught the disease.

On the Middle East, Joe as the worst of AIPAC servants, similar to Mr. and Mrs. Clinton were rabid biased and pro-Israel with a genocidal agenda of Zionists: removal of the indigenous Palestinian population. The last president who stood up against the murderous Israeli regime was George Bush Sr. and Secretary of State James Baker III.

George H.W. Bush Was The Last President To Really Get Tough With Israel | Huff. Post - Dec. 4, 2018 |

If other presidents had followed suit, it might have altered the course of Middle East history.

One of George H.W. Bush's greatest accomplishments, a flurry of even-handed diplomacy that set the stage for the first direct Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, has received relatively little attention in the analysis of his legacy that followed his death recently.

As part of his efforts, Bush threatened aid to Israel to nudge it in the direction of peace -- making him the last American president to take such strong measures against the American ally. And, for a time at least, he got his way.

"Bush's foreign policy legacy, especially on the issue of Israeli-Palestinian peace, cannot be overstated," said Daniel Kurtzer, a longtime U.S. diplomat who helped shape Bush's Middle East policy. "His willingness to be tough on all parties ... ushered in a period of intense diplomacy involving Israel and all of the Arab world."

Had the United States government continued Bush's tough-love approach, rather than abandoning it, Kurtzer and other foreign policy veterans argue, the U.S. may have succeeded in brokering the kind of lasting peace deal that still eludes Israel and the Palestinians.

"It's pretty remarkable that no Republican or Democratic president since has been willing to put meaningful pressure on Israel," said Khaled Elgindy, a fellow at the Brookings Institution who advised Palestinian negotiators from 2004 to 2009. "Even as they have learned what the peace process has required, they've been less willing to do what's needed."

From the diaries ...

Gaza Massacre by the Jewish State of Israel | 16 May 2018 |

The great ally for decades of the United States. Only George Herbert Bush with Secretary of State James Baker III and Barack Obama with John Kerry had the courage to follow through on Internationl Law and the UN Security Council resolutions to confront the state of Israel. Both the Republicans and Democrats lost the the next bid for presidency in the election.

Men of courage and peace ☮️ get assassinated ...

Murdered by Muslim Brotherhood later linked up to Al Qaeda ...

Murdered by an ultra-Zionist linked to Kahanists like Smotrich and Ben Gvir, now responsible for incitement of hatred and genocide in Gaza and the West Bank.

Easily linked Al Qaeda terror to Kahane terror in the Jewish State of Israel on Palestinian occupied land ...

From the River to the Sea

Palestine 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸 will be free ⁉️

Weak leaders get a long live filled with failures as citizens suffer. 😥

The GOP-led House voted to censure Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib over her remarks regarding Israel and Hamas. Tlaib is the only Palestinian American in Congress and is one of two Muslim women in the U.S. House and has been accused of promoting false Un-American narratives and calling for destruction of the state of Israel an Independent Palestinian State.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib Accuses Biden of Supporting "Genocide" in Gaza | Vanity Fair |

"Mr. President, the American people are not with you on this one," the Michigan Democrat said.

Progressive representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan accused President Joe Biden of supporting "the genocide of the Palestinian people" in a video posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, on Friday, as the death toll in Israel's battle against Hamas rapidly approaches 10,000 according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

"Joe Biden supported the genocide of the Palestinian people," read several lines of text at the end of the video, which includes clips of Israeli airstrikes hitting Gaza, injured children, and pro-Palestinian protests across the United States. "The American people won't forget," the video continues. "Biden, support a ceasefire now, or don't count on us in 2024." 

The White House did not directly comment on the video.

Only the shadow knows how many US American Mohammetans are and will be registered to vote by 5 Nov 2024.

ChatGPT may boast that MI-12 habors the largest "mostly muslim" voting BLOC in US America, but PEW estimated a total 3.45M, of which adults 2.25M, in 2017.

Muslims in the U.S. are not as numerous as the number of Americans who identify as Jewish by religion, according to our estimate.
(emphasis in original)

Of course, PEW's demographic profile lacked Census 2020 "fully synthetic" data visualization standards. Bureau statisticians of the Biden administration persuasion may or may not have enhanced the THREAT as liberally as has World Population Review. That outfit's calculations by state indicate the size of potential "uncommitted voters" in several states eclipses that in Michigan by orders of magnitude. New York's April primary follows "March Madness" primary brackets across the nation.

Will the "uncommitted voter" virus have thoroughly compromised Genocide Joe's nomination by July? More important, will it coalesce into electors' votes for Anyonebut Biden on 5 November?

In any case, the application of feckless "critical race theory" to political science is pretty amusing to me. Praise be! At long last, the heat is OFF the black and hispanic BLOC magical margins of error, for the time being.

As I recall ... Jewish eligible voters are double the Muslim number ... 1.5% vs 0.75% ... marginal except in conglomerates. Same with the Hispanic vote still split between Republicans (Floridian Cubans), Spanish-Mexican in Longhorn state (Catholicism), and Democrats ... the Southern California Spanish Americans are clearly more progressive.

US election: Jewish and Muslim votes probably don't have the power to change the outcome - despite backlash on Gaza policy | The Conversation - 22 Dec. 2023 |

a bit sketchy perhaps 😄

National Profile of The Jewish Electorate in 2020

This map shows the 20 congressional districts with the most Jews

The study, like previous others, found that Jewish voters are more Democratic and politically liberal than the country at large. It also found, similar to earlier research, that Jewish voters tend to be older than average.

What's new here is that the researchers were able to identify not only how Jews vote but where they cast their ballots. The study found that the majority of Jewish adults live in four states -- New York, California, Florida and New Jersey.

"In all of the so-called battleground states, not only Florida but places like Pennsylvania and Ohio and Michigan, those are states where if something similar to 2016 happens in 2020, Jews are large enough in number in those states where they could make a difference," said Leonard Saxe, director of the Steinhardt Social Research Institute.

Approximately one-third of Jewish adults, about 1.8 million, are concentrated in just 20 congressional districts among the 435 across the United States.

Biden risks losing crucial support from Black Americans over Gaza stance | TRT World |

... recent polling suggests that Gaza is also playing a meaningful role in Black voters' cooling feelings about Biden.

At the end of August 2023, the Public Religion Research Institute found that 77 percent of Black Americans would vote for Biden in a head-to-head matchup with Trump. This was already a 15 per ent decline in the support he received from these voters in 2020.

By late November, however, Genforward found that only 63 percent of Black Americans planned to vote for Biden.

Fumble in the Bronx: Democrats' unlikely loss shows where Biden is bleeding | The Hill - 25 Feb. 2024 |

Meanwhile, Pew Research Center reports, "Latinos have grown at the second-fastest rate of any major racial and ethnic group in the U.S. electorate since the last presidential election. An estimated 36.2 million are eligible to vote this year, up from 32.3 million in 2020. This represents 50 percent of the total growth in eligible voters during this time."

And now, the leading Republican candidate for president is winning these voters over in droves. Increasingly, Latino voters see the twice-impeached, twice-divorced, four-times-indicted Trump as morally upright, successful in business, and sharing their values.
