1. Pro-Palestinian violent protest erupts outside DNC headquarters in Washington DC, Capitol police injured:

Fox News – Police in the nation’s capital responded to the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee as pro-Palestinian demonstrators grew violent as they called for an immediate cease-fire in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) said about 150 people were “illegally and violently protesting” near the DNC headquarters building in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington.

Protesters told Fox News Digital that there were 300 people protesting the war.

Denny’s Insight: If these people really do love Palestine so much, maybe they should fly over there and head to Gaza to tell Hamas how much they support them. I’m sure Hamas will give them a welcoming they’ll never forget. It’s a shame this happened in D.C.; too many Americans have lost touch on what’s important.

2. More Americans believe crime in US is becoming ‘extremely’ serious: Gallup:

The Hill – Nearly two-thirds of Americas believe crime is an “extremely” or “very” serious problem in the U.S., according to a new Gallup poll released Thursday.

The 63 percent rate is the highest ever collected by Gallup, with the previous high of 60 percent found in 2000, 2010 and 2016.

A small proportion of respondents considered crime extremely serious in their local communities, just 17 percent, but over half of them believe crime has gone up in their area.

Denny’s Insight: Now if we could translate these concerns and worries into effective votes to leaders that will end the massive crime wave sweeping our biggest cities…


3. Biden says Gavin Newsom ‘could have the job’ of president after calling him ‘one hell of a governor’:

NY Post – President Biden openly touted California Gov. Gavin Newsom as a hot contender for the White House — telling world leaders the younger man “could have the job I’m looking for,” referring to his 2024 reelection bid.

“I want to thank him. He’s been one hell of a governor, man,” Biden, who turns 81 next week, said of the 56-year-old fellow Democrat after he warmed up the crowd for him at a reception for leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference.

“Matter of fact, he can be anything he wants — he could have the job I’m looking for,” said Biden, who is currently the Democrats’ frontrunner for 2024.

Newsom was previously mentioned as a potential Biden primary challenger as he ramped up his national image. He made headlines last month when he went on a week-long trip to China to speak with President Xi Jinping ahead of the APEC conference.

Denny’s Insight: The passing of the torch is begins…


4. Tucker Carlson, Candace Owens, and Ben Shapiro: Understanding the Dispute:

Breitbart – Popular conservative host Tucker Carlson interviewed conservative commentator Candace Owens on Wednesday about her dispute with Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro, which burst into the open when a video of him criticizing her was made public.

Shapiro called Owens’s commentary on the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas “disgraceful,” without specifying. Owens has generally been skeptical of the war and of U.S. involvement, and has been accused of equivocating between Israel and Hamas.

In one post on X / Twitter, for example, Owens described a massive pro-Palestinian protest in London, which included extreme anti-Israel chants and antisemitic rhetoric, as if it were motivated by rejection of a media narrative, not hatred of Israel and Jews.

Owens apparently responded to Shapiro’s criticism by posting a message on X / Twitter that quoted the New Testament and said: “You cannot serve both God and money.” Shapiro said that if she felt she were facing that choice, she should quit the Daily Wire.

Denny’s Question: Wow. Things are escalating at the Daily Wire it seems. What’s your take on the matter in Owens vs. Shapiro? Personally, I hate to see conservatives squabbling like this, but I can see both perspectives.
