7 Things: Cease fire extended two more days; Schumer will try to bypass Tuberville; and more …

7. X CEO Elon Musk, someone regularly fraudulently called an anti-Semite, spent time in Israel with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu touring areas attacked by Hamas militants. While in the now-destroyed residential areas, Musk may have said one of the most reasonable things on the entire Israel-Hamas conflict, “It’s one thing obviously if civilians die accidentally, but it’s another thing to revel in the joy of killing civilians. … That’s evil.”

6. The border is out of control and a train full of potential illegal immigrants is still heading toward the southern border and the Biden administration seems disinterested in deterring the migrants from making the trip.

5. Alabama’s joke of a medical marijuana law has spurred a ton of chaos and some lawsuits after the legislatively created Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission muffed the licensing rollout. A lawsuit over that situation has led to an agreement that removes two of the scoring metrics from the selection process.

4. While the focus in Washington, D.C., when it comes to the Russia-Ukraine conflict is always about providing more money and weaponry to Ukraine, the issue dimming the chances of Ukraine’s success may actually be the depletion of the number of soldiers it can bring to the battlefield.  

3. Alabama State House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels (D-Huntsville) is running for Congress and wants those in the newly drawn Second Congressional District to know that while he is living in north Alabama, he is also from the Black Belt. 

2. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is planning on trying to confirm hundreds of military nominees over the holds that Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) has. But it remains unseen if the votes are there to get the job done.

1. The temporary cease fire between Israel and Hamas will be extended for two days. The media continues to equate Israeli hostages being released with Palestinian prisoners when they are very different, one group is 100% the victim while the other is littered with terrorists.
