Pray For Israel 🇮🇱 🙏
Our ally Israel is under attack. Since Monday, the terrorist organization Hamas has launched more than 1,000 rockets toward Israel, with many targeting its capital, Jerusalem, and its second-largest city, Tel Aviv. Pray for our ally Israel.
The violence has escalated since last week, when Palestinians hurled rocks and fireworks at Israelis from the Al Aqsa Mosque, located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Make no mistake: These terrorist assaults by Hamas are aided by Palestinian leaders who encourage violence against the state of Israel and distract the world from their own corruption. Israel’s military forces have defended their state and citizens, and rightly so.
Israel needs the United States’ unwavering support. But far-left Democrats are making the situation far worse by fueling anti-Semitism. “Squad” member Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called the Israeli defense “an act of terrorism,” even though Israel is defending against terrorism. Luckily, the GOP is standing up for Israel by introducing legislation to cut off funding for Hezbollah, a terrorist group that has vowed to destroy the Jewish State.
As Amb. Haley said, the terrorist attacks and anti-Israel rhetoric from all angles must end now.

Biden’s Blue State Bailout Is A Failure 🤲
Joe Biden is dishing out $350 billion to state and local governments as part of his $1.9 trillion “stimulus” boondoggle. But there’s one big problem: Many states don’t need it. Plenty of states have seen tax revenues increase and are running budget surpluses this year.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of Biden’s funding will go to blue states. And we already know what liberal leaders will do with the extra cash: Bump up the handouts. Case in point: In California—where the state has a massive surplus—Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) wants to triple spending on stimulus checks. To make matters worse, Biden’s billion-dollar giveaway comes with this caveat: States can’t use the money to cut taxes and spur a faster recovery.
This is just the latest proof that Biden and the Democrats are courting economic disaster. They’re spending money America doesn’t have and states don’t need, while standing in the way of a stronger economic comeback. Oh, and soon they’ll try to hike taxes to pay for the spending spree. Things are going to get a lot worse, and only Republican leadership can make them better.
