TENSIONS REMAIN IN SOUTH AMERICA IN ADVANCE OF REFERENDUM VOTE. -----BEGIN TEARLINE------International Events-Middle East: The war in Gaza continues as the end of the ceasefire results in renewed efforts by all parties. Several small militant groups within Lebanon have declared their participation in the conflict as Hezbollah increases attacks in the North. Israel continues bombing attacks on all fronts, while Hamas rocket attacks have mainly focused on targeting Israeli positions to the north of Gaza City.South America: Military posturing efforts remain underway in Brazil as tensions escalate before the Venezuelan referendum on Guyana. Tomorrow, Venezuelan voters head to the polls to vote on whether or not to annex the Esequibo region of Guyana.-Homefront-USA: Details emerge regarding the stabbing of Derek Chauvin. The assailant was John Turscak, who was sentenced in 2001 to 30 years confinement for racketeering while serving as an FBI informant working within Mexican mafia circles. Turscak claims to have committed the attack in solidarity with the BLM movement.-Analyst Comments-Tensions in Guyana and Brazil will remain high over the next few days as the Venezuelan population (in effect) votes on whether or not to invade another country. Considering Venezuela's current political and electoral situation, there is little doubt as to the outcome of this vote. What is more debatable is whether or not Venezuela will indeed carry out their plans.Regarding the attempted assassination of Derek Chauvin, it is unclear as to why a federal informant who, nearing the end of their sentence, would commit an attack in the name of a group that Mexican cartels have historically had a tepid relationship with.-----END TEARLINE-----Analyst: S2AEND REPORTNNNN
RR The Wire 2130Z December 1, 2023PRECEDENCE: ROUTINE RRDTG: 213001Z DEC 23ICOD: 200001Z DEC 23CONTROLS: Public ReleaseQQQQBLUF: GAZA CEASEFIRE HAS BROKEN. TENSIONS REMAIN IN NORTHERN BRAZIL. -----BEGIN TEARLINE------International Events-Middle East: In Gaza, the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has been broken. It is unclear as which side began hostilities first (or if the deadline was reached), as both sides launched nearly simultaneous attacks. Hamas has conducted substantial rocket attacks in the North, with Israel conducting substantial airstrikes IVO the Rafah border crossing. Attacks from Hezbollah in Lebanon continue as well. Due to the intensity of the conflict, humanitarian aid shipments into Gaza via the Rafah crossing have stopped for the time being.Europe: In Russia, Vladimir Putin signs decree increasing the total size of the AFRF by 170,000. AC: This is not a deployment or mobilization, but rather an increase in the standing size of the Russian military. Currently Russia's military is comprised of roughly 1.3 million service members. This move comes three weeks after Russia's (and NATO's) formal withdrawal from the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), the treaty intended to limit the numbers of troops in Europe at the height of the Cold War.South America: Brazil continues to bolster defenses along the border with Venezuela amid high tensions in the region. AC: Limited reports on social media indicate Brazil has moved forces into a salient north of Boa Vista. Due to terrain limitations and the access of roads, a Venezuelan land-based invasion of Guyana (if it were to happen) could be conducted via Brazil's territory.-Homefront-GA: Local reporting indicates a woman has possibly attempted to self-immolate outside the Israeli Consulate in Atlanta. NFI ATT. AC: Though a currently developing event, initial reports indicate the woman was wearing/holding a Palestinian flag, suggesting the motive for the incident as being linked to the current conflict in the Middle East.-Analyst Comments-In the Middle East, Israel has almost certainly made good use of the ceasefire to continue SIGINT collection efforts within Gaza. However, it is unclear as to how effective this intelligence gathering would have been as Hamas militants clearly understand Israel's superior technical intelligence capability. As a result, airstrikes are likely to be intense as targeting efforts catch up to the intelligence picture.-----END TEARLINE-----Analyst: S2AEND REPORTNNNN

AC: Conflict in Jenin has remained volatile since the ceasefire began.OPEC announces a further cutting of production by 1 million BPD. AC: This is in addition to the 1 million BPD production cut already in place until the end of the year. As this information comes on the heels of Brazil's announcement of joining OPEC+ next year, it is unclear as to how severely the increasing of voluntary production cuts will affect crude prices next year.South American Front: Tensions flare between Guyana and Venezuela following long-standing territorial disputes in the region. Brazil has reportedly begun moving troops to their border with Venezuela allegedly in response to Venezuelan troop movements near the disputed zone.-Homefront-NY: Pro-Palestine demonstrations disrupt the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Initial reports indicate at least two arrests were made.Washington D.C. – An FBI agent was carjacked by two armed attackers, both of whom remain at large.-Analyst Comments-As a reminder, Venezuela has claimed roughly 70% of Guyana's land mass as being historically integral to Venezuela. The disputed territory is allegedly home to vast petroleum deposits. Though this issue is not new, the recent tightening of OPEC production could inflame tensions in the region even more over the coming months.-----END TEARLINE-----Analyst: S2AEND REPORTNNNN

Rudy and Christian join Chris Gilbert for a discussion on his new book Commune or Nothing! Venezuela's Communal Movement and its Socialist Project. We cover the history of the Venezuelan communal project, and how it relates to previous attempts of the government to build a socialist economy including the Venezuelan cooperative movement or the drive to build state-run industry. We discuss the ideas of István Mészáros on how the commune centers the communal control of the labor process, and attempts to solve problems found during the socialist transition, before pivoting to ground data on the communes, the economic relationships between them and towards the outside, the issues with voluntarism, the problem of attracting the youth and the structure of the new Communard Union. We finish with an outlook for the future and a discussion on how communes center all around human development and have a more mystical side to them.

Three news stories summarized & contextualized by analytic journalist Colin Wright.Venezuela says Guyana seeks to halt vote on disputed territorySummary: Venezuelan officials have said that their neighbor, Guyana, is appealing a referendum that Venezuela has scheduled for December 3 with the International Court of Justice, intending to derail the voting process, that referendum focused on the issue of a territory on the two countries' border that both governments claim.Context: This territory has been a contentious issue between the two countries since colonial times, and that tension was increased when Guyana achieved independence from the UK in 1966, but for decades the region has been governed by Guyana while Venezuela has continued to claim it as its own, and tensions over this issue have increased as fossil fuel resources have been discovered in the area and Exxon Mobil and other oil giants have started seeking licenses to drill; the government of Guyana has said that it's on heightened guard right now, as the Venezuelan military has reportedly been building up resources near their shared border.—BloombergOne Sentence News is a reader-supported publication. To support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.Senate Republicans confront Tuberville over military holdsSummary: Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville was seriously confronted by Senators from his own party over his nine-month blockade of new US military confirmations and promotions in protest the military's abortion policy, for the first time, during a recent session.Context: Senators from both parties have criticized Tuberville for this blockade in the past, as it has resulted in a shortage of US military officers, but the issue has become more pointed since the conflict between Israel and Hamas took off a few weeks ago, as US military resources have been moved to the area and lack necessary upper-brass service-people; Tuberville has said he won't drop his blockade until Democrats allow a vote on the Pentagon's policy of allowing all troops access to reproductive healthcare—something that is no longer guaranteed across the United States, and is instead decided on a state-by-state basis—and this has led to nearly 400 military officers not receiving their promotions or confirmations, so far.—The GuardianPresident Joe Biden calls for 'pause' in Israel-Gaza conflictSummary: US President Biden has called for a pause in the fighting in Gaza to allow humanitarian resources into the area, and to allow hostages free-passage out of the region.Context: This represents a shift in policy by Biden, who has repeatedly said that the US government will fully back Israel, no matter what, while also encouraging the Israeli military to be careful about harming civilians as they pursue Hamas' leaders and infrastructure; Israeli leadership has countered that a pause would only allow Hamas the opportunity to re-arm and rebuild, but a recent series of attacks on refugee camps in Gaza by the Israelis have sparked pushback from some of their staunchest allies, leading to more calls for humanitarian pauses, and more publicly voiced concerns about what constitutes a war crime in this kind of situation.—BBC NewsIndia's winter rice output could decrease by as much as 8% this year, truncating the country's overall production and increasing the likelihood that an ongoing rice export ban will be extended in order to shore-up in-country availability (which would not be ideal for the global rice market, as India's crop is fundamental to it).—Reuters$8.61 billionMinimum price Disney will pay Comcast for its 33% share of Hulu (the rest is already owned by Disney).This will put the streaming service completely under Disney's control, at a moment in which streaming services across the board (except for Netflix) are having trouble earning a profit from their offerings.Hulu will be assessed to determine its fair market value, and Disney will pay more than that minimum price-floor if Comcast's share is deemed to be worth more than the previous assessment indicated.—The VergeTrust Click Get full access to One Sentence News at onesentencenews.substack.com/subscribe

BlazeTV host Pat Gray and contributor Jaco Booyens join the show to discuss Jewish hate that is on the rise globally and the White House's release of a national strategy to combat Islamophobia that stemmed from the Hamas attack on October 7. In a message, Vice President Kamala Harris announced the "country's first National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia" to "combat a surge of hate in America." Multiple Republicans joined with Democrats in voting to table a resolution to censure Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. The resolution was put forward by GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and last week, Tlaib issued a statement describing it as "unhinged" and "deeply Islamophobic." A group of thousands of migrants from China is headed to the United States by way of the Darién Gap. Chinese people were the fourth most numerous nationality — after Venezuelans, Ecuadorians, and Haitians — crossing the Darién Gap. Hunter Biden claimed victimhood in a recent op-ed with USA Today. Biden wrote about his battle with addiction and his fight to get sober. In his op-ed, he accused others of using his addiction as “fodder for a vile and sustained disinformation campaign against him." The Washington, D.C., mayor, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police, is giving away free AirTags and anti-theft devices to D.C. residents to combat a 27% raise in auto thefts.

You have to hand it to Biden. Despite his cognitive decline, he has never mistakenly deviated from his immoral views. I list all of the ways he is strategically helping Hamas kill Israeli soldiers. Meanwhile, the Right is in disarray. Republicans are bashing Tommy Tuberville for fighting the woke military; they have no plan for the budget fight; and now even the Freedom Caucus members are bitterly divided over unimportant matters. Later on, I chronicle how many of the Israelis killed by Hamas were actually left-wing activists who genuinely thought they could make peace with the Arabs. It is a tragic metaphor for what has happened to the Western countries that have embraced Islamic migration.

While our soldiers remain in the Middle East protecting Iranian proxies from Sunni insurgents, Iran is using its proxies in Venezuela to subvert our border. We're joined today by Joseph Humire, executive director of the Center for a Secure Free Society and one of the foremost experts on Latin American affairs, who first warned on this show years ago that Venezuela would become our Syria. Well, now it is. Venezuela is the number-one sending country of illegal aliens, but it has also become a visa mill and logistics platform for Hezbollah, Hamas, and Iranian intelligence. There is no way we are not allowing those elements into our country, along with the hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan migrants. Our blindness to our own border and hemisphere has allowed all the bad actors in the Middle East to utilize Venezuela as a staging ground for narco-terrorism. That same staging ground now has a land bridge right to our border. Humire also warns that Colombia is the next shoe to drop that will send millions more to our border. We don't have any visionaries among Republicans with a strategy to shut this down. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Building on its humanitarian parole programs for the admission of Afghan and Ukrainian nationals, the Biden administration established such a program for Venezuelans in October 2022 and expanded it to include Cuban, Haitian, and Nicaraguan nationals in January 2023. The “CHNV” humanitarian parole program requires a sponsor in the United States, such as a citizen or lawful permanent resident, and enables the United States to admit up to 30,000 nationals from those four countries every month. The White House announced that it is encouraging individuals “to seek orderly and lawful pathways to migration and reduce overcrowding along the southwest border and the strain on the immigration system.” Due to very high interest in the program, a significant backlog of CHNV applications developed by May 2023. According to one study, the CHNV program has already prevented the entry of hundreds of thousands of unauthorized immigrants along the southern border with Mexico. Among other important issues, the panelists will discuss: What are the successes and challenges of these programs? What will happen to those admitted after the two years of humanitarian parole status expires? To what extent are such parolees applying for asylum or other legal immigration statuses? How are these new lawful pathways affecting the number of arrivals from these countries at the southern border with Mexico? Speakers: Andrew I. Schoenholtz, Professor from Practice, Georgetown Law; Co-Director, Center for Applied Legal Studies; Faculty Director, Human Rights Institute, Georgetown Law David J. Bier, Associate Director, Immigration Studies, CATO Institute Dara Lind, Senior Fellow, American Immigration Council Royce Bernstein Murray, Senior Counselor, Office of the Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

We also have special guest Adrienne Pine, who will share her experience as part of the recent CODEPINK and Task Force on the Americas delegation to Venezuela, where they learned from the socialist communes and witnessed the remarkable resistance of the Venezuelan people against US domination.
When 2 sisters moved to Florida from Venezuela there was something they were missing from their homeland and they wanted to quickly solve that problem. Fittingly named "Toast-It," these sisters built a brand out of the one thing they missed the most after moving to the U.S. from Caracas, Venezuela — their mother's cooking. Mafe and Coco's products are made using ingredients that are true to their Venezuelan culture and after initial success with a handful of retailers, they decided to apply for a spot on Shark Tank! Mafe and Coco's products are made using ingredients that are true to their Venezuelan culture. The Toast-It arepas, for instance, are made using white cornmeal flour, much like the masarepa that's used in traditional arepas. But, they also come in other versions — one that's seeded, combining the cornmeal with flax and chia seeds, and another made with cassava, also known as yuca flour, that is also traditional to Latin cuisines. On Shark Tank O'Leary made the sisters an offer: $100 grand for 20% equity — Mafe and Coco, were asking for the same amount of money for 5%. Guest shark Daniel Lubetzky matched it, and the girls countered by offering them both 15% equity for $150,000, ultimately striking a deal with Lubetsky.On Today's show you'll learn:
Recording right after Games 5 in the LDS, one would think we would be all postseason all the time. You haven't met Pottymouth. Prepare to be schooled on how being pro-Israel is not the same as standing up against anti-semitism, and we're not sure all the baseball players in that video understand that. Also that our supporting the right of athletes to speak out on issues that matter to them in no way extends to our agreeing with them. We also dip back into how immigration policy is preventing families of Venezuelan baseball players from coming to the US to see them play. We come around to the “New England Parlor Game” of all the people declining interviews to head baseball ops for the Red Sox (Pottymouth plants a flag for Craig Breslow), and how Marlins ownership drove out Kim Ng, who was arguably the best thing to happen to that franchise in years. Why are baseball academies in the DR such targets for break-ins? And ah, yes, the postseason. Pottymouth was right about Kyle, Patti calls dibs on Alek while still throwing down for Nats North, and the Bryan Abreu kerfuffle gives is the bench clearing we didn't know we needed. Patti wants to be the PitchCom librarian and is currently wondering where Austin Hedges' “F*^& Yeah” track gets filed.We say “We are not shut up and dribble people,” “Is it an isthmus?” and “I don't speak Spanish but that sounds like National Chickens.” Fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, get boosted, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

Nearly 15 years ago, Uwe and Hannelore Romeike fled Germany in order to homeschool their children in the United States. Under Germany's education laws, the Romeikes were subject to severe financial penalties for attempting to homeschool. On a few occasions, police came to their home and escorted their children to school. In 2009, they moved to the U.S. and petitioned the government for asylum. They've lived here since, mainly in Morristown, Tennessee. Never formally granted asylum, they were granted indefinite deferred action status in 2014 by the Obama administration. They've since added two children, their two oldest have married U.S. citizens, and they have even welcomed a grandchild. Last month, during a “routine check-in,” the Romeikes were told they had to return to Germany. According to Home School Legal Defense Association attorney Kevin Boden: "They were basically given four weeks to come back. They (were given) a report date in October. They (didn't) know what (was) going to happen in that meeting. They (didn't) know if they're going to be forced to leave. They (didn't) know if they're going to be taken into custody." Given how long the family has been in the United States and how unconcerned the Biden administration seems to be about illegal immigrants pouring across the Southern border, it's difficult to make sense of why they would be so concerned about the Romeike family status now. After a significant amount of public pressure, the INS has given the family a one-year reprieve, but their story seems part of an increasing hostility to religious refugees on the part of the U.S. government. According to a 2023 report from World Relief and Open Doors US, the number of religious refugees admitted to the U.S. has plummeted, though the number of Christians facing persecution around the world continues to climb. An estimated 360 million Christians live under threat of persecution and discrimination, an increase of 100 million in the last three years. Last year, the United States only resettled 25,465 refugees, excluding the Afghans and Ukrainians who entered the U.S. via a separate parole program. This number represents a dramatic reduction from pre-2017 levels when the U.S. resettled an average of over 80,000 people per year. And, as the World Relief and Open Doors report outlines, the number of religious (including Christian) refugees from historically dangerous parts of the world have decreased even more sharply. In 2022, refugees from Eritrea, Iran, Myanmar, and Iraq were down “85 percent, 95 percent, 92 percent and 94 percent, respectively” compared to 2016 levels. Between 2016 and 2022, refugees from Burma (including most Rohingya) declined by 62%, total Christian arrivals by 70%, and Yezidis by 100%. “America,” the author concludes, “is no longer the safe haven for displaced persons that it once was.” Though refugee resettlement in the U.S. slowed to a trickle during the COVID-19 pandemic, the trend goes back earlier. In 2019, I observed in a Breakpoint commentary that though the Trump administration had stalwartly defended religious liberty at home, it had shut down legal channels for religious—including Christian—refugees while trying to stop the crisis of illegal immigration. Now, America faces a heightened crisis of illegal crossings due to the Biden administration's open border policies, especially on the southern border. However, fixing that problem should not include closing off all options for religious asylum seekers. Especially since the administration promised to specifically increase the number of religious refugees but instead arranged for 472,000 Venezuelans to come work in the U.S. The strange targeting of the Romeike family, along with an unaddressed crisis of green-card applications, which could see thousands of faith leaders in the U.S. sent home after years of residency, suggests that the religious aspect of these stories may be an outsized factor. Admittedly, reversing this trend now seems impossible in light of the war between Israel and Hamas. None of the surrounding Muslim nations are opening their borders to those seeking to flee the imminent ground assault of Gaza. And large, angry, and violent immigrant populations are protesting in many Western cities in support of the atrocities committed against Israel. Though it is possible to secure our borders and to properly vet and assist refugees facing religious persecution, the system will need to be rebuilt around completely different assumptions. The current system invites mistreatment and exploitation. Encouraging the lawlessness of some while abandoning others, especially many who belong to what Paul called “the household of faith,” only feeds a narrative that America is becoming a more hostile place for religion, especially Christianity. That narrative is supported by more than enough evidence already. This Breakpoint was co-authored by Kasey Leander.

With what happened in Israel, this is our best opportunity to finally shut down the border and push an end to visas from the Middle East. I first debunk some conspiracy theories about what happened in Israel. People are right to ask questions, but some of the conclusions of a few pro-Palestinian voices on the Right seem to be misinformed and are negating their own stated principles. We're joined by Ben Bergquam, host of "Law & Border" on Real America's Voice News, for a riveting briefing on the flow of Venezuelans, Africans, and Middle Easterners at the Arizona border. Ben draws powerful analogies to the Israel situation and warns that we are nearing a tipping point. Once subversive forces – be it belligerent migrants, Islamic jihadists, or cartels – reach critical mass within the country, they will turn violent on us, just as they are doing in Europe. Our immigration policies are a death sentence for America. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
We never could have guessed this week would be defined by the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, but here we are with an opportunity to change Western governments for the better. I make the case for why this genocide, along with the ensuing domestic pro-Hamas rallies, could serve as an impetus to change hearts and minds and spawn changes to immigration and border policies, and self-defense policies, as well as foreign policy. I also explain the threat of Hezbollah from Venezuela and why all Venezuelans should be sent back. I list all of the policy changes we need that can serve as a do-over from 9/11. Finally, I indulge those who think this is a conspiracy theory, discuss how to remain vigilant against a hidden agenda, and how to ensure that we parlay this into a righteous agenda.

Egypt is worried that the war between Hamas and Israel could spill over into its territory. The only border crossing between Gaza and Egypt came under Israeli attack this week, prompting Egyptian officials to close it. And, Israel's response to the deadly attack by Hamas over the weekend is already underway. But as hundreds of thousands of Israeli troops gather on the border of the Gaza Strip, they're facing a new challenge as more than a hundred Israeli hostages are being held inside Gaza by Hamas. And, Argentinians are headed to the polls on Oct. 22 while the country grapples with a triple-digit inflation rate. The front-runner candidate for president, Javier Milei, is a radical libertarian with a plan to dissolve Argentina's Central Bank and adopt the US dollar as legal tender. Plus, this Venezuelan opposition leader on upcoming elections.
