A floating pier and causeway that will be used to deliver critical humanitarian aid by sea to Gaza is expected to take at least one month or possibly as long as two for the US military to build and become fully operational, Pentagon press secretary Maj. Gen. Patrick Ryder said on Friday.

Ryder also said the construction of the pier and causeway will likely require as many as 1,000 US military personnel to complete.

The extended timeline reflects the complicated nature of the project, which is the second such extraordinary measure the Biden administration has announced in just under a week to try to alleviate the desperate humanitarian situation facing Palestinians in Gaza caused by Israel's refusal to open additional land crossings or surge more aid by land into the enclave as it continues to fight Hamas. read more

Picture this: an upside-down flag outside a Supreme Court Justice's house, right after a chaotic Capitol riot. Now, if that isn't a flashing neon sign of "stop the steal," what is?

Only if you already have a preconceived notion of what that means, and as I have proven multiple times, that assoication was NOT common knowledge at the time. As such, there is no evidence that Mrs. Alito raised that flag with the understanding that people who saw it would associate it with the Stop the Steal movement. As evidenced on Truthy's many links, nearly every one posting on Reddit either didn't know what it meant or associated it with "America in Crisis", and I think the majority of us can agree that was a time when we thought America was in crisis.

"Ignorance of such a symbol, under these circumstances, would be unusual, especially for individuals deeply embedded in the judicial and political landscape of the country."

Well GOSH then, why didn't those "STOP THE STEAL" protestors know this was a symbol of STOP THE STEAL"? It would've been pretty easy to just turn their flags upsidedown to join in the fun. Not enough zip ties? Nobody seems to be able or willing to answer that question, which proves....it wasn't a thing in January 2021....except for a very small minority of the "stop the Steal crowd. Like 10 people out of thousands.

Yes, it is true. I have now found at least TEN upside-down flag images from Jan 6, which proves nobody here is even trying to refute my claim of TWO. Lack of confidence in your position maybe? Maybe you can find more. Be careful though, because some of them are actually from in front of the Supreme Court, where it was considered a symbol of protest against the Dobbs decision in 2022. Oops.
