A politician on the floor can't be held liable for any ridiculous lie they tell.

But I'm not sure it covers tweeting even if they're doing it while on the floor

This is America, they need to be sued for this shit or they'll never stop.

If Netanyahu hadn’t tentatively agreed to it,

He hasn't even done that...

Every article headline you see that makes it sound like he did, the article (really subtitle most of the time) clarifies that no Israeli official said it. They're all rumors from unsourced "US officials".

Who are just saying it because Biden keeps saying it.

It's either propaganda or the Biden admin is just that disengaged from reality that they're walking away honestly believing it.

Both are terrible

That's not Israel agreeing to it...

You gotta read more than just the headline bub

[-] givesomefucks@lemmy.world 5 points 1 hour ago

where Israel agreed to a cease fire in Gaza

They didn't agree to it tho...

It's US officials saying Israel is willing to negotiate. Israel isn't even saying that, which is why they're not sending people to negotiations

I'd love to see one of those...

I've seen a lot of headlines saying they are. Then usually the sub title immediately clarifies that it's just an anonymous official saying Israel has "agreed to negotiate" which is more than what Israel will even say.

If they agreed to a proposed ceasefire, they'd sign it.

Instead they say "we need to work out the details" which means they do not agree with the proposal.

Why keep pretending Israel wants peace?

They literally just killed a bunch more civilians seeking aid, and Israel hasn't even said they're going to sign anything.

https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/israel-carries-out-biggest-ramallah-raid-years-witnesses-say-2024-03-04/

If they're raiding refugee camps and killing random people, it's pretty easy to tell they don't want a ceasefire.

Hell, last I heard from Netanyahu he was saying even if there was a ceasefire, it wouldn't stop them getting their "final victory".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel will continue with the offensive until a “final victory” achieves all of its goals. He expects the war to last throughout 2024 and has resisted calls from the U.S. and other allies to lay out a clear postwar plan for Gaza.

But people are still spamming articles about how Israel has "basically provisionally essentially" signed a ceasefire?!

It's almost like you can't trust what far right genocidal authoritarians say....

But surely Biden would have figured that out by now...

Subtitle:

White House officials claim provisional agreement is on the table as scale of starvation crisis revealed

So the same thing Biden's administration has been saying anonymously since 10/7.

Absolutely nothing has changed.

Israel still hasn't agreed to anything.

Can we ban these bullshit propaganda posts until Israel actually signs something?

All this is, is a self professed Zionist running PR for Israel and hoping his voters stop giving him shit for supporting a genocide.

That, or his mental decline is so bad Biden legitimately doesn't understand this keeps happening.

Either way, we deserve better than these two wealthy white geriatrics as president. And that's not just a dig, by 80 everyone is fucking geriatric.

This is like if I walked up to someone at 7am and kicked them in the balls every 15 minutes until noon.

Then at 12:01 he pushes me away before I can, so I beat the shit out of him and tell him that's what he gets for pushing me.

Anyone that hasn't just started paying attention is going to say I'm at fault.

Unless I guess the other person is brown, then everyone will tell me how brave I am.

And Israel lets suitcases full of cash into Gaza for Hamas...

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/12/10/world/middleeast/israel-qatar-money-prop-up-hamas.html

But they stop actual aid to citizens of Gaza because Hamas might take it...

Netanyahu is a far right authoritarian, and they need an enemy to point to. So his government helps Hamas while hurting civilians so they join Hamas.

[-] givesomefucks@lemmy.world 29 points 13 hours ago

The article immediately clarified Israel hasn't agreed to anything.

Biden keeps saying a ceasefire is about to happen, despite no signs it will

So his administration keeps releasing these unsourced reasons that it total is happening, despite no signs it is.

Subtitle:

White House officials claim provisional agreement is on the table as scale of starvation crisis revealed

So it's a US official anonymously saying that an offer is on the table...

Like every other post OP has made on the subject, the headline isn't factual and immediately clarified in the article.

If Israel was going to agree to it, they'd sign it

But they won't, so they don't.

Judge Newman has threatened to have staff arrested, forcibly removed from the building, and fired. She accused staff of trickery, deceit, acting as her adversary, stealing her computer, stealing her files, and depriving her of secretarial support. Staff have described Judge Newman in their interactions with her as “aggressive, angry, combative, and intimidating”; “bizarre and unnecessarily hostile”; making “personal accusations”; “agitated, belligerent, and demonstratively angry”; and “ranting, rambling, and paranoid.” Indeed, interactions with Judge Newman have become so dysfunctional that the Clerk of the Court has advised staff to avoid interacting with her in person or, when they must, to bring a co-worker with them.
