7 Things: Still no Speaker; Hamas bombs Gaza hospital so the world blames Israel; and more ….

7. Border crossing terrorists are a problem and there is no sign that the Biden administration is not taking it seriously. U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) is saying that terrorists and enemies of America are coming into the country, “We have apprehended over 200 that we know have some connection to terrorist organizations. There’s over 3,000 Chinese nationals in the country. I’m very concerned.”

6. But fear not, all this talk of an open border is merely a mirage, according to Axios, the idea of an open border is just a right-wing talking point. The “AxiosExplains” piece is headlined, “Axios Explains: The myth of a U.S.-Mexico “open border” and argues, “the reality is that the southern border is more fortified than it’s ever been.”

5. U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) is not cutting President Joe Biden any little slack and is hammering Biden for his handling of Iran and how it led to this attack on Israel. “They didn’t have any money. And hey, Joe Biden eased up all the sanctions, they’ve made billions of dollars. Now he’s given money to him. I mean, just totally opposite of what President Trump had done. And our world was so much safer when President Trump was in office. It has been a total disaster.”

4. Speaking of Sen. Tuberville, he is now claiming he has received close to a dozen death threats in his time as a U.S. senator and “4 of those people are in jail.” Tuberville was recently targeted for “removal” from the “human race” by a former head of the CIA, a man Tuberville says has lived a life of ” failure, serial dishonesty, and now his post-retirement grifting.”

3. The Israel-Hamas war is a propaganda battle as well, with the Western media ready to inflate body counts and atrocities on the whims of the terrorist leadership that started this mess with a terror attack on thousands of Israelis. Regardless, after an Islamic Jihad rocket hit a hospital in Gaza allegedly killing 500 people, Hamas said it was Israel and the dutiful scribes in the Western media echoed it and created a worldwide storm.

2. Was there a reason for President Joe Biden to go to Israel at this point? Not if the Jordanians have their say, they have now called off their summit with Biden. PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas canceled his meeting, too, and in another propaganda victory for Hamas as terror groups call for another “day of rage.”

1. Unsurprisingly, there is still no Speaker of the House as Republicans can not figure out how to form a coalition among largely like-minded individuals with U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) falling 20 votes short of the votes needed to win the job. Allegedly, voting will continue today, but there are a lot of questions about how Jordan can win over his detractors and bipartisan talks are back.
