Shocking: Florida Gov. Sending Help For Border Crisis

Gov. Ron De Santis (R-FL) sends help to the U.S. – Mexico border; law enforcement officers will be deployed to mitigate the illegal migrant crisis.

In Wednesday’s announcement, he will send officers with state law enforcement agencies and sheriff’s offices to the border to assist Texas and Arizona, helping to stem illegal immigration into their communities.

De Santis said:

America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American. The Biden Administration ended policies implemented by President Trump that were curbing illegal immigration, securing our border, and keeping Americans safe.

Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security. I’m proud to announce today that the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.

Thus far, the following agencies have committed to deploy to the border:

  • Florida Highway Patrol
  • Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
  • Brevard County Sheriff’s Office
  • Escambia County Sheriff’s Office
  • Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office
  • Holmes County Sheriff’s Office
  • Lee County Sheriff’s Office
  • Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office
  • Pasco County Sheriff’s Office
  • Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office
  • Walton County Sheriff’s Office

Florida’s Division of Emergency Management is coordinating the agencies’ deployment to the border, DeSantis said.

The announcement is in response to Texas and Arizona’s Governors asking states for help with the illegal migrants pouring into their state due to the Biden administration’s massive Catch and Release operation.

More than 172,000 migrants were apprehended at the border in May, and this is an increase of 700 percent from when Trump implemented fierce border controls.

The Biden administration is releasing tens of thousands by releasing them into the interior of the U.S.

Current projections predict about 1.2 million border crossers will be encountered at the border his year; the potential of hundreds of thousands crossing illegally is a reality, as they will go undetected by federal immigration officials.

Exposed: Biden’s Latest Plan To Boosts Immigration Numbers

President Biden is allowing migrants from Central America with pending asylum claims to have families join them in the US while American taxpayers foot the bill.

The Los Angeles Times, on Tuesday, revealed:

The Biden administration on Tuesday announced the major expansion of a program that would allow many such youths into the country legally, part of its stated goal to increase “legal pathways” for immigration. The changes could boost the number of Salvadoran, Guatemalan and Honduran children joining their families in the U.S. from several hundred to tens of thousands.

The in-country processing will resume with Tuesday’s announcement, administration officials said. Advocates warned against allowing burdensome backlogs to form in El Salvador, Guatemala, or Honduras, with screening, interviews, vetting, and cross-border paperwork that delay and ultimately discourage applicants, some of whom feel too at risk to wait it out [and choose to take their shot trying to sneak into the U.S.]

The US Departments of State and Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed the Los Angeles Times reporting, citing an anonymous source:

The program in question is the State Department-administered Central American Minors (CAM) program, established by the Obama-Biden administration in 2014 in response to a wave of unescorted children reaching the border. Its expansion would essentially allow the sitting Democrat president to use the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) to create a new immigration pathway for the families of migrants — chain migration. On March 10, the Biden administration announced it was restarting the program.

The LA Times added:

Tuesday’s decision vastly increases the potential pool of children who will be allowed to seek entry. It expands the categories of adults who may petition for children to join them, adding to the mix legal guardians and parents whose legal status in the U.S. is still being processed, including those with pending asylum cases or applications for what is known as a U visa given to victims of violence, the official said.

The official [who spoke on condition of anonymity] said there could be at least 100,000 newly eligible petitioners.

Many of the children and youths — who must be unmarried and younger than 21 — also will be allowed to avail themselves of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, which provides numerous benefits and is also being expanded by the Biden administration, the official said.

The CAM program was shut down in 2017 by Former President Trump. The program permitted parents who lived in the U.S. legally to petition the have their children join them. It also allowed migrants to apply for refugee status while waiting in their home countries for the application to process.

“We are firmly committed to welcoming people to the United States with humanity and respect, as well as providing a legal alternative to irregular migration,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas declared in a joint statement.

They expressed that CAM expansion is part of a broader effort to expand legal access to safer immigration.

“The expanded Biden version will have more outreach, but the rationale is the same: Don’t come here illegally because we will come get you in legally,” Nayla Rush, a refugee and asylum policy expert at the Centers for Immigration Studies (CIS), wrote on Tuesday.

She acknowledged what happens if an immigration judge denies the asylum or the visa claims and if “caregivers” of said children could also be allowed into the U.S.

The surge of migrants mainly from the Central American Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras under the Biden administration has skyrocketed to record levels.

Asylum cases can take years. Biden is offering some asylum seekers work permits so they can resettle under U.S. taxpayer-funded aid under USRAP.

U.S. law deems a refugee is an alien who has experienced past persecution or has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Fleeing poverty or violence, as most Central Americans claim, is not grounds for asylum.

Alert: Chicago Mayor Makes Her Move – 2nd Amendment Under Attack

As Chicago’s gun violence surges and firearm-related homicides increase, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) pushes for more federal gun control.

Eight people were shot inside a residence Tuesday, leaving four dead and four wounded. In comparison, 43 people have been hit by bullets over the weekend in Chicago, and 55 were shot the previous weekend in the city, Breitbart News reported.

WGN News indicated Mayor Lightfoot appeals to the federal government for more gun control.

Lightfoot specifically addressed Tuesday’s shooting of eight people in Engelwood, saying, “What we will likely learn as the details become clearer is that illegal guns continue to plague us. Gun violence continues to have a deep and painful history in our city. Unfortunately, Chicago is not unique. We are part of a club of cities for which no one wants to belong, cities with mass shootings.”

She added, “Cities individually cannot tackle this problem. We just cannot. In Chicago, we’ve done absolutely everything possible, and we need help from the federal government. When guns are so porous that they can come across our borders as we see every single day in Chicago, we know that we have to have a multi-jurisdictional, national solution to this horrible plague of gun violence.”

Lightfoot asked for federal help and said, “This is a national problem,” returning to a refrain she has repeated many times before in addressing the problem afflicting her increasingly violent city.

Lightfoot, in the summer of 2020, called for more gun control. She did not mention the “assault weapons” ban that was already in place.

Illinois already has a licensing process for would-be gun owners that includes a background check.

Illinois additionally has a 72-hour waiting period on gun purchases and a red flag law, among other gun controls.

Shocking: Vladimir Putin Goes After Biden

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the U.S. government of assassinating Ashili Babbit in an interview with NBC News on Monday.

Without using her name, Putin referenced Babbitt’s death when asked if he ordered the assassination of Alexei Navalny, a Russian dissident. Navalny had a close call with death in August of 2020 while flying from Siberia to Moscow. After receiving treatment in Germany, he recovered from the nerve agent and was jailed when he returned to Russia in January 2021. Russian’s FSB security service agents have been implicated in the attempt on Navalny’s life.

Host Keir Simmons asked about Navalny after Putin deflected on political repression in Russia. Puttin argued there is repression in Amerian as well, using the January 6th incident as an example.

“Of course not. We don’t have this kind of habit of assassinating anybody. That’s one,” Putin said to the charge of ordering the attack on Navalny.

“Number two is I want to ask you: Did you order the assassination of the woman who walked into the Congress and who was shot and killed by a policeman? Do you know that 450 individuals were arrested after entering the Congress? And they didn’t go there to steal a laptop,” he continued.

“They came with political demands. Four hundred fifty people have been detained. They’re looking at jail time, between 15 and 25 years. And they came to the Congress with political demands. Isn’t that persecution for political opinions?” Putin asked.

Putin accused the U.S. government of bypassing legal procedures to punish the Capitol protesters excessively. He claimed the Russian dissidents he is accused of repressing are convicted criminals:

Some have been accused of plotting to topple, to take over government power. Some are accused of robbery. They didn’t go there to rob. 

The people who you have mentioned, yes, they were convicted for violating their status, having been previously convicted, given suspended sentences, which were essentially a warning to not violate the Russian laws. And they completely ignored the requirements of the law. The court went on and turned the conviction into real jail time. 

Thousands and thousands of people ignore requirements of the law, and they have nothing to do with political activities in Russia every year, and they go to jail. If somebody is actually using political activities as a shield to deal with their issues, including to achieve their commercial goals, then it’s something that they have to be held responsible for.

Putin was referencing criticism that the January 6 protesters received disproportionately stern treatment, as expressed by Republican senators in correspondence to Attorney General Merrick Garland sent on June 7. Despite Democrat and media’s instance, the Capitol Hill riot was an “insurrection,” most charges filed to date have been for milder infractions.

Simmons responded by calling Putin out for his habit of saying, “What about America?” every time his government is accused of transgressions. Like the Chinese government, Putin is adept at studying American media controversies and finding social stress points to hit, opportunities to accuse the U.S. of hypocrisy, and deny it has the moral standing to criticize human rights abuses elsewhere in the world. 

Most likely, Putin is aware Babbit’s death is in the news once again as her family is demanding to know the identity of the Capitol Police officer who shot her. The family’s legal representative is accusing the government of concealing the officer’s identity as he may have a questionable service record and because “they don’t have a good explanation for the shooting.”

The Babbit family lawyers have plans to file a $10 million civil lawsuit against the Capitol police, charging excessive force was used against unarmed women. In April, the Justice Department said the officer would not face charges.

Exposed: Biden Makes His Move… Conservatives in Shock

The Biden administration announced their plans to create ways Americans can report family and friends who are radicalized to the government to fight domestic terrorism.

One senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled before it starts in conversation with reporters.

“We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said.

The Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something, say something” was cited as a campaign to stop radical Islami Terror as a domestic possibility.

“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official said.

A stark warning was sent with Biden’s inauguration speech, “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.”  Then on June 1, Biden said “white supremacy” is the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.”

The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization.

“Any particular tech company often knows its platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the relationship between online recruitment, radicalization, and violence in the physical world.”

The Department of Homeland Security also plans to deploy “digital literacy” and “digital fitness” programs to help combat “malicious content online that bad actors deliberately try to disseminate.”

The administration’s new strategies will be “laser-focused” to eliminate violent acts, the official said to reassure reporters.

“This is a strategy that is agnostic as to political ideology or off the spectrum,” the official said. “What matters is when individuals take their political or other grievances and turn that — unacceptably, unlawfully — into violent action.”

The official added the threat of domestic terrorism is being taken seriously, and intelligence agencies would redirect on internal threats.

“We are investing many agencies of the government and resourcing them appropriately and asking our citizens to participate,” the official said. “Because, ultimately, this is really about homeland security being a responsibility of each citizen of our country to help us achieve.”

Shock Report: Biden Completely Trashes Trump Supporters While Overseas

During a press conference in Europe on Monday, President Biden calls Trump supporters a “significant minority” of Americans.

The president spoke of Trump and his supporters during a press conference day after NATO summit meetings with the world leaders.

I think it’s appropriate to say that the Republican party is vastly diminished in numbers, the leadership of the Republican party is fractured, and the Trump wing of the party is the bulk of the part. But still, it makes up a significant minority of the American people.

A reporter asked Biden how American’s allies could trust his statement that “America was back” after Trump’s presidency.

“What I’m saying to them is, ‘Watch me,’” Biden replied, adding he was trusting that world leaders believed, “that I mean what I say, and they believe that I keep my commitments when I say it.”

Biden believes that the United States is turning away from the “phony populism” inflamed with Trump’s presidency.

“I think this is passing. I don’t mean easily passing,” he said. “That’s why it’s so important that I succeed in my agenda.”

Biden expressed hopes that “a lot of Republicans, particularly younger Republicans,s” would join in a coalition of political leadership.

The Capitol Hill riots on January 6th was cited as a shock to democracies worldwide, but he is reassured about America’s character overall.

“I think it is a shock and surprise that what’s happened in terms of the consequence of President Trump’s phony populism has happened,” he said.

Biden expressed his disappointment in Republican’s refusal to vote in support of an investigation of the Capitol Hill riots and failure to challenge the hold Trump has on their party.

“It is disappointing that so many of my Republican colleagues in the Senate — who I know, know better — have been reluctant to take on, for example, an investigation because they’re worried about being primaried,” he said.

Exposed: Twitter Censors Facts Posted By Conservative Group

Twitter has enraged parents throughout the country for censoring factual information about anti-white critical race theory, which is meant to fuel division and hate across America.

The Center for Renewing America (CRA) was censored after posting a toolkit giving parents truthful and accurate information about critical race theory. Conservative Partnership Institute policy director Rachel Bovard noted this was done at the behest of the Soros-funded special interest group, Media Matters.

Bovard noted how Big Tech’s censorship tactics are a more significant threat to freedom of speech and the 1st Amendment than any government entity lately.

The CRA has many tools to help activists oppose the teaching of critical race theory on their website. Included are an essential reading list, a framework of jargon commonly used by this racist curriculum’s practitioners, a primer on the evil and laughably false 1619 Project, and some of the worst examples of the curriculum in action. 

“The Center for Renewing America knows that to revitalize the American spirit and restore our great nation, this far-left ideology must be defeated. We are committed to that mission and stand ready with millions of citizens to stop this radical cultural revolution,” the group wrote on their website.

Many states are pushing back against critical race theory Big League Politics reports:

Columbia University professor John McWhorter is urging for parents to pull their kids out of a prominent prep school in Bergen County, NJ, over critical race theory being taught at the school.

McWhorter praised teacher Dana Stangel-Plowe, who resigned from Dwight-Englewood school over her principled opposition to critical race theory. He is calling for parents to pull their kids out of the school until the administrators are held accountable and forced to ditch the curriculum.

“All hail Dana Stangel-Plowe, who has resigned from the Dwight-Englewood School, which teaches students ‘antiracism’ that sees life as nothing but abuse of power, and teaches that cringing, hostile group identity against oppression is the essence of a self,” said McWhorter, who also works as a writer for The Atlantic magazine, in a tweet.

“Truly antiracist parents, in the name of love of their kids, should pull them from the Dwight-Englewood school as of next fall,” McWhorter added. “Only this will arrest these misguided Elect parishioners from their quest to forge a new reality for us all.”

Stangel-Plowe blasted the racist curriculum when she publicly announced her resignation due to her opposition to critical race theory.

“[S]tudents arrive in my classroom accepting this theory as fact: People born with less melanin in their skin are oppressors, and people born with more melanin in their skin are oppressed,” Stangel-Plowe wrote. “Men are oppressors, and women are oppressed, and so on. This is the dominant and divisive ideology that is guiding our adolescent students.”

She explained that indoctrinated students now “recoil from a poem because it was written by a man” and “approach texts in search of the oppressor” because this poison has been drilled into their brains by abusive teachers.”

Big Tech pushes this agenda to increase anti-white racism. The survival of the West will be determined by the push. We must rebuke the low IQ ideologies pushing jealousy and entitlement.

Watch: Biden Gets Confused On The World Stage – Unbelievable

Biden’s first trip overseas as president has had awkward, funny, and utterly embarrassing moments on the world stage.

1.) Biden stumbled over his words during a press conference as he was discussing his interest with Russian Vladimir Putin.

From the White House transcript (Emphasis added):

1: There’s a lot going on where we can work together with Russia. For example, in Libya, we should be opening up the passes to be able to go through and provide — provide food assistance and economic — I mean, vital assistance to a population that’s in real trouble.

2: For example, the rebuilding of — of Syria, of Libya, of — you know, this is — they’re there. And as long as they’re there without the ability to bring about some order in the — in the region, and you can’t do that very well without providing for the basic economic needs of people.

3: So I’m hopeful that we can find an accommodation that — where we can save the lives of people in — for example, in — in Libya, that — consistent with the interest of — maybe for different reasons — but reached it for the same reason — the same result.

A clip was found on social media by the Republican National Committee’s research team.

Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, after the press conference, told reporters that the president meant to say Syria, not Libya, during the discussions with Putin.

2.) Biden interrupts British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, suggesting he overlooked the introduction of South Africa’s president.

There was laughter from some of the world’s leaders at the table.

Biden mistakenly referred to COVAX, the program for global vaccines, as COVID (Chinese coronavirus) three different times during a press conference.

The White House transcript of the press conference corrected Biden’s remarks with brackets (emphasis added):

I committed that we would provide a half a billion — a half a billion beyond the 80 million we’ve already done — half a billion doses of Pfizer vaccine, which we contracted to pay for, in addition to money we put into the COVID [COVAX] project, which is that COVID [COVAX] is — and I know you all know, but a lot of people may not know what COVID [COVAX] is — that is a system whereby they’re going to provide funding for states to be able to get access to vaccines on their own, as well.

Biden confused some journalists with his statements about “COVID,” especially after saying “a lot of people may not know what COVID is.”

4.) Biden abruptly ends the press conference after he was asked about Former President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs.

“A hundred and twenty days. Give me a break,” Biden said hoarsely, leaning into the microphone. “Need time.”

At that point, Biden had been president for 145 days.

He left the stage without any additional comments to conclude his G7 meetings.

5.) Biden was in fear of his staff, reporting he would “get in trouble,” taking too many questions without prior staff approval.

“I’m sorry, I’m going to get in trouble with staff if I don’t do this the right way,” Biden said as he looked at his list of pre-approved reporters.

Later saying to reporters, “I’m going to get in trouble with my press, my staff. Yeah, go ahead. But pretend that I didn’t answer you.”

6.) Biden engages with reporters, and Jill Biden move in quickly to retrieve him.

A female reporter asked Biden how his meetings w3ere going; he stopped, turned, and asked her to repeat her questions.

Jill retrieved Joe; she took his hand and led him away.

7.) Joe Biden declared he does not want to return to the United States.

“It’s gorgeous. I don’t want to go home,” Biden said to journalists who spoke to him when he first arrived in the G7 Summit in Cornwall.

8.) Biden dodged British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s handshake.

“Wait a minute, wait a minute,” Biden said, waving off Johnson as he grinned and offered an elbow bump to Johnson’s new wife, Carrie, instead.

Biden noted he and Johnson “married way above our station,” as he complimented Johnson’s wife.

9.) As President Biden and the First Lady arrived at the G7 Summit, the president joked everybody should jump in the water as the leaders took a picture on the beach in Cornwall.

10.) During a speech to troops stationed in the United Kingdom, a woman in the crowd yelled, “I love you, Joe!” this prompted the president to seek the woman’s identity.

His wife, Jill, quickly prompted Joe to turn and sheepishly salute his wife.

Shocking: 32 Shot, 3 Dead… Developing

Across Chicago, Thrity-two people were shot, three dead, Friday into Sunday morning, under the watch of Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D).

Just after 2 a.m, two males approached a group standing on the sidewalk in the 7500 block of South Prairie Avenue and opened fire, Chicago police said.

A 29-year-old woman was struck in the leg and abdomen and transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not yet identified her.

According to police, nine more victims, ranging in age from 23 to 49 years old, were transported to area hospitals, all in fair or good condition.

There is no one in custody.

About 1:20 p.m., the male, whose age is unknown, was parked on the street in the 600 block of South Wells Street when someone in a passing vehicle fired shots into his vehicle, police said.

He was struck multiple times, and he was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital, police said. He has not yet been identified.

A 20-year-old woman was killed in a shooting Friday night in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

She was in a vehicle with her boyfriend about 8:50 p.m. when a gunman approached them while yelling gang slogans in the 4700 block of South Rockwell Street, police said.

The woman was sitting in the passenger seat when she was struck in the neck and hand, police said.

After the shooting, her boyfriend drove off and pulled over at a Shell gas station, 4658 S California Ave. Chicago Fire Department paramedics arrived. The woman was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital and later pronounced dead, police said. She has not yet been identified.

At least 15 more people have been hurt in shootings since 5 p.m. Friday.

Last weekend nearly 55 people were shot in Chicago.

Wow: Israel’s Netanyahu Give His Last Speech – Dire Warning to Iran

Before the vote confirming the new Israeli government, outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized Naftali Bennet, his likely replacement, in a speech to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset.

“Bennett always does the opposite of what he says and what he promises,” Netanyahu said, mocking his rival’s prior statements about opposing the Iran nuclear deal.

Netanyahu began by pointing out his party, the Likud, had more votes than any other party in the Knesset.

He recounted his work in the government as Israel’s longest-serving prime minister: including his role in rescuing hostages as a member of Israel’s special forces and his long history in public service.

“We changed Israel into a world power,” he said, noting Israel’s emergence as a technological and economic force.

“We were the first in the world to emerge from the coronavirus,” he added and stressed Israel’s free-market reforms, noting that they had enabled Israel to weather the pandemic with far greater success than many other countries.

His government has proudly opposed the Iran nuclear deal and also managed to forge the Abraham Accords, a “historic agreement” with several Muslim and Arab states; new peace has been brought to the region, Netanyahu added. Moreover, he said, Israel had improved its relations with countries worldwide, from Africa to Latin America, while still reserving the right to attack threats — whether Palestinian terrorists or Iranian-backed forces in neighboring Syria.

He noted that Israel had also developed natural gas resources offshore in the Mediterranean during his tenure, joining fossil-fuel-producing nations.

Netanyahu was not greeted with heckles or interjections, at least until halfway through.

He said that his government had placed Israel in the best situation, from a natural security perspective, that it had ever enjoyed. He recalled the chaos of the Second Intifada, just before he took office, with buses and restaurants bombed.

“It didn’t just happen,” Netanyahu said, implying his leadership and his policies were the reason for Israel’s success.

He said that his policies were those of the “true right” and said that, if necessary, he would fight against “this dangerous government” from the opposition benches.

Netanyahu said that he had told U.S. President Joe Biden that he had not agreed to keep disagreements over the Iran deal behind “closed doors” — a position supported by Israel’s left-wing parties, who have opposed outright confrontations with Democratic Party administrations in the U.S.

Netanyahu recalled that Jews had tried that subtle approach when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, as the Nazis were carrying out the Holocaust and should not be silent again.

The prime minister of Israel, Netanyahu said, must be prepared to say no to the President of the United States and to do so publicly, when the issue at hand affected the fundamental security of the Jewish state. He criticized Yair Lapid, leader of the Yesh Atid party, for opposing Netanyahu’s approach in favor of quiet disagreement with the U.S. (Lapid is set to become prime minister in two years under the coalition agreement and will serve as foreign minister under Bennett.)

Netanyahu said that Iran was celebrating the new Israeli government. “It’s no wonder that they are celebrating today … They understand that today there will be a weak Israeli government.” He sent his message to the Iranian leaders — in English: “We’ll be back — soon.”

Even as he urged members of the Knesset to vote against the new government, he stressed that he would provide a strong opposition alternative, offering a real choice to Israeli voters for the future.

He also said that the outgoing government was leaving the Israeli economy in “fantastic” condition, far better than that of most other countries, defending Israel’s recent free-market reforms against “socialism, populism, and opportunism.”

As hecklers mentioned his ongoing criminal trial, Netanyahu departed from his prepared remarks to mock the prosecution. Netanyahu faces charges of corruption that critics have described as flimsy and politically motivated.

Netanyahu also attacked Bennett for breaking election-eve promises not to co-govern with Arab parties. He said that while the counting of votes in the March election had been fair, the coalition negotiations since had been fraudulent.

He said that in direct democratic elections, he would be elected prime minister and accused his opponents of changing the rules of the Knesset to allow small, minority parties, such as Bennett’s Yamina party, to lead the government.

He called Bennett’s party the “fake right” and said that the coalition was a union of extremist parties, citing various controversial positions taken by its members, including his former coalition partner, Avigdor Lieberman.

It was Lieberman’s refusal, in 2019, to join a Netanyahu government that included the ultra-Orthodox parties that triggered the political crisis in Israel that resulted in several new elections over the following two years.

In an apparent answer to Bennett, who had closed his speech with a prayer, Netanyahu cited Psalm 144:8, calling for God’s help against those “whose mouths are full of lies,” a reference to Bennet’s broken campaign promises.
