Israelis are voting Tuesday, for the fourth time in two years, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks re-election after a record-breaking 12 consecutive years in office.

Netanyahu has refused to resign after being indicted for alleged bribery and fraud, which has divided the country into two polarizing sides. This has led Israel to hold elections more frequently than any other major democracy.

Netanyahu has denied the allegations. His trial on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust has already begun and is expected to resume in April.

It is predicted to be a tight race between Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is a member of the Likud party, and his opponents, according to the latest opinion polls.

Netanyahu’s rivals include Yair Lapid, a member of the Yesh Atid party, who has emerged as as the moderate candidate to Netanyahu.

“Vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,” Netanyahu said after casting his ballot in Jerusalem, Calling the occasion a “festival of democracy.”

Lapid said, “this the moment of truth for the state of Israel,” as he casted his vote in Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu hopes his coronavirus vaccine rollout will win him another term in office with Israel vaccinating its population faster than any other country.

Netanyahu is urging his supporters to vote, tweeting that there has been a low voter turnout.

“Low turnout in the South. Likudniks must go to the polls now. Take family and friends. Two more seats and we win and form a strong right-wing government,” Netanyahu wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

An official vote tally may be calculated by Wednesday.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
