Ruth Wisse "My Life With Leonard Cohen"

This is quite a nice essay. 

Prof. Wisse is a very, very smart Jew. If you haven't read any of her stuff, I would urge you to do so.

Do read the whole piece here, it's just lovely.

History Geek Out! First Mention of Jesus Found in 2,000 Year Old Tablets!


Dear Trondheim, Norway

F&ck you. 

Seriously. I mean it. Screw yourselves upside and sideways, you disgusting Jew-haters.

Not only does Norway not deserve JEW ORANGES, it doesn't deserve Jews. 

I officially, for real, and not for joking, hope you all get rickets.

Norwegian snakes. 

You disgust me.

Germany Is Screwed: Literally

So, the Sooooper Smart Volk in Germany think it's a totally awesome idea to give refugees "flirting lessons" at the taxpayer's expense. 

I suppose if you think about it, "flirting lessons" are better than the alternative. They sure don't need rape lessons or sexual assault lessons there. They totally have that covered.

I mean, better to get "flirting lessons" than to rape German grandmas, or beat the living snot out of granny, right?

Obviously, there's nothing to worry about in Germany. Do not pay any mind to the little cute groups army of excitable, young, single, horny, migrants walking strolling marching through your streets.


Rush Limbaugh: "The Left's Lionization of Fidel Castro Is Sick"

This is a good summary of the disgusting reaction of the political left to the death of Fidel Castro. 

They are mourning him because he was on "their" side. For the political left it doesn't matter how many murders are committed, how much misery is bestowed upon a population, how much naked hypocrisy, no matter how many families are ruined and torn apart and bereaved, none of that matters as long as the goal is the pursuit leftist-socialist-utopia.

"Communism is an evil thing, folks. It is an ugly, evil, vile, inhumane thing, and Castro was one of the world's most dominant communists ever."

"It's a great myth that communism is about upward mobility for the bourgeois, for the middle class, for the proletariat, for the hoi polloi. That's a big myth. Communism, socialism is all a scam designed to keep people impoverished. Better to control them. It's designed to enrich the leaders. It's an oppressive, tyrannical form of human arrangement. And the lie is that it is the only way lower middle-class people can have upward mobility. It's just absolute BS."

"All this equality and sameness and equal rights and fairness, you go to any communist country, there's none of that. And there never will be any of that. There's never any of that in liberal societies. There's always anger and misery and unhappiness because it's a false promise that a bunch of dupes end up believing, and it never happens. The leftists succeed in blaming capitalists for the failure of Marxism, socialism, communism. It is just despicable."

"The fact that this way of governance has not been dispatched forever is one of the enduring mysteries to me. The explanation obviously is psychological, and I intend to discover it. I intend to find out what it is. To me it's unacceptable that people still find anything redeemable in it, even hope, because there is clearly none of that."

This will never change. 

As my father often reminds me "there will always be a new crop".

Another Brutal Editorial on the Trudeau Eulogy

"Get us re-write, pronto."

"The PM’s words were false on several counts. Did the Cuban people have a deep love for “el Comandante”? In Cuba, answering anything other than in the affirmative was illegal. Mr. Castro did not hold elections, nor did he tolerate free speech, opposition parties, or human rights groups."

"His oratory was “legendary” because, in a country where other voices were silenced, he was free to enjoy the pleasure of delivering speeches that went on for hours. Did he show a “tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people”? He certainly demonstrated a consistent dedication to maintaining power."

"Had Mr. Trudeau issued such a praise-filled statement on the death of, say, a Chinese leader, it would at least have been understandable. China is the world’s second superpower, and Ottawa must walk a fine line in dealing with Beijing. A certain amount of diplomatic hypocrisy is sometimes required."

"But Cuba? In dealing with broke and broken Havana, Canada’s diplomats and leaders have the freedom to speak the truth. On Cuba and Castro, Canada can say what it really believes."

"Which leaves the disturbing impression that Mr. Trudeau said what he said because it’s what he really believes."


Meanwhile in the UK (Which Is Screwed)

A snapshot of higher education in the UK if you are drinking whilst Jewish: 

"We, and other bystanders, heard a number of vicious antisemitic slurs including “f****** Jews, you don’t belong here,’ ‘dirty Jews’ and to myself, ‘f*** off darkie.’ They then proceeded to try and choke my friend with his scarf, leaving him gasping for oxygen, and to push me and the third friend around, despite our attempts to de-escalate the situation. They eventually went back in after threatening to “smash our faces in.”

"Let Marie Henein Speak"

Big Shut Up attempts to claim another scalp. 

Steyn: All Berned Out and Doubling Down

So, I actually snorted out loud at this video, and yes, I know that is NOT VERY LADYLIKE OF ME.

But it was so worth it.


"Bernie Sanders happens to be a New York Jew in rural Vermont which is, in terms of being a minority is a bit like being, you know a gay nightclub owner in Riyadh. It's about as small a minority as you can get."

You know, I resemble that remark! 

I had occasion recently to be in a similar area demographically, topographically and whatnot, and felt like a real Uber Jewy city slicker from the East Coast. Mark Steyn is right! Rural Vermont is lovely, but Jewish it ain't. In fact, I'd say the only time I felt more Jewish was when I had to play OMG what's that "sport" called, with the brooms, on the ice, OH YES IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW...CURLING!

Right, playing curling, or I guess as the hip folk say "when I curled" (is there a capital letter on that thing??!?!), that was the most goyische thing I have pretty much ever done in my Jew life, but I must say, being in certain parts of aforementioned rural America certainly made me feel as though I single handedly increased the Jewish population in significant, immeasurable ways!

On my next travels to said region(s), I have threatened offered to make LATKES just to Jew it up a little. OY TO THE VEY!

So, in that spirit, here's the most goyische latke video I could know, all in the name of honouring the Judeo-Christian culture and mixing things up a little.


Just FYI, I also laughed out loud at this essay, because I think Mr. Steyn kind of, sort of, like, maybe called Justin Trudeau a little, but not fully [NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT] gay. You know, it was like a sinister Steynian mind trick, putting in the Maybe Gaybe suggestion in there??!?!?  To wit:

"Justin Trudeau enjoys "publicly manifested homosexuality" so much he's the first Prime Minister of Canada to march in the annual LGBTQWERTY parade. If he were minded to "publicly manifest" his enthusiasm in Cuba, he'd be arrested: "Social justice" isn't quite as sociable there as it is in Toronto. But don't let a little thing like that get in the way of some A-grade dictatorial crawling..."

PS: Nice suit, Mr. Steyn. 


Must Read Dennis Prager: "Why Left Wingers Cut Ties With Trump Voters"

This actually happened to me a few weeks ago. Just on Facebook and not in person so seriously LIKE WHATEVSSSSSS but this is exactly the kind of rhetoric that preceded my being dispatched to Facebook Friend Gulag.

You know, the old "it's not me, it's you, Rosen" kind of thing...

Anyway, read the whole thing! So good. 

This is the intellectual territory really where Prager always hits his stride. He knows the leftist mind inside out and backwards.

It's also quite lovely (maybe a little bit naive, too) that he has enough faith in humans to encourage people to still try to maintain ties, despite all the anger and hostility. I actually don't think this pans out when you are faced with that much raw emotional anger, but hey-do what you gotta do.

A few good nuggets, but seriously read the whole thing:

"People on the right think that most people on the left are wrong; people on the left think that most people on the right are evil. Decades of labeling conservative positions as “hateful” and labeling conservative individuals as “sexist,” “intolerant,” “xenophobic,” “homophobic,” “racist,” and “bigoted” have had their desired effect."

"The Left associates human decency not so much with personal integrity as with having correct — i.e. progressive — political positions. Therefore, if you don’t hold progressive positions, you lack decency. Ask your left-wing friends if they’d rather their high-school son or daughter cheat on tests or support Trump."

Every, Every, Everything Back

This is what a tiny, tiny modicum of justice looks like. 

We, the Jews, should not stop until we get everything possible back. Every piece of art, every insurance policy, every apartment, every set of candlesticks. Every, every, every, everything.

When the German Nazis burned us, we rebuilt. We made children, we made grandchildren, we built our homeland.

As the current crop of Nazis burn Israel, I say to you: we will rebuild as well. Every day is a miracle. We will make our numbers bigger, stronger, more successful and live with more joy. That is Jewish defiance.

We will build ten homes for every single one burned.

American Genocide: Nick Cannon on Planned Parenthood

Newfound respect. 

If You Want to Understand Evil, Read This

Via the Washington Post, here's an essay that gives us a very clear picture of what we in the civilized world, are up against. 

You should read the whole thing, but there are two points I want to highlight here. 

The first, concerns the murder of Daniel Pearl. 

Here's how it went down: 

"What is it like to stare into the face of evil? James E. Mitchell knows.

"In his gripping new memoir, “Enhanced Interrogation: Inside the Minds and Motives of the Islamic Terrorists Trying To Destroy America,” Mitchell describes the day he was questioning Khalid Sheik Mohammed, when the 9/11 mastermind announced he had something important to say. “KSM then launched into a gory and detailed description of how he beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl,” Mitchell writes. 

"Up to that moment, the CIA did not know KSM had personally carried out the murder. When asked whether it was “hard to do” (meaning emotionally difficult), KSM misunderstood the question. “Oh, no, no problem,” KSM said, “I had very sharp knives. Just like slaughtering sheep.

"To confirm his story, the CIA had KSM reenact the beheading so that it could compare the features of his hands and forearms to those in the video of Pearl’s murder. “Throughout the reenactment, KSM smiled and mugged for the cameras. Sometimes he preened,” Mitchell writes. When informed that the CIA had confirmed that he was telling the truth, KSM smiled."

See, I told you,” KSM said. “I cut Daniel’s throat with these blessed hands.”

In summary: This is a culture that sacralizes barbarity and murder. 

And ironically, it is this culture of savagery that has a more nuanced understanding of the battle fatigue of the West. 

Who will win this war? The barbarian remains (rightly) confident, or at least rightly confident under the Obama regime. Perhaps the tides are beginning to change now (see Brexit, and Trump victory).

We will win because Americans don’t realize . . . we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.”

Shame on anyone who doesn't make it their life's mission to prove him wrong.

Ohio State Jihad: "Public Safety"...

Is the new "workplace violence"!

But hey. Yes, you there!

Do you hear that sound? The whirring? The spinning?

That's the sound of the NO IMMEDIATE MOTIVE STORY GENERATOR firing up! 

There's "no motive known" but we do know two things for sure.

His name, and who the real victims are: 

"Authorities have not identified a motive but are not ruling out that the incident was terror-related. The suspect has been identified as 18-year-old student Abdul Artan, MSNBC reports. He is of Somali descent and a permanent legal resident. Sources told reporters that he left behind a messaging admitting that he was sick of hate crimes against Muslims across the country."


The police chief thinks that we have to consider it might be terrorism. Ya think? 

Vehicular jihad (quaintly nicknamed "car ramming" by the mainstream media) started in Israel, with the Palestinians.

Just a reminder that what starts with the Jews, never ends with the Jews.

Dear France...

Boycotts work both ways. 

You would think that France had other things to worry about. 

But if you thought that, you'd be wrong, so don't worry your pretty little infidel heads about it. 

And especially don't worry your pretty little infidel heads about it if they are no longer attached to their heads.

C'est la vie. It's obviously much easier to be a Preening, Cheese Eating, Virtue-Signalling Surrender Monkey and worry about JEWISH FRUIT AND HUMOUS than deal with jihad.

So This Actually Happened....

For real and not for joking.

Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmmm......


"First, Fire the Speechwriter"

Sage advice from Prof. Clifford Orwin.

"After Mr. Trudeau fires his speechwriter, he should take a long look at himself. Yes, he is a Trudeau, whose father consistently whitewashed not only Fidel Castro but (much worse) Mao. Justin Trudeau just missed his chance to jump this particular family ship. Allegiance to the best in one’s heritage is admirable; remaining mired in the worst is not."

Who on earth would take Canada seriously at this point?

See the dictator-lover get utterly savaged here. It's so good.

"This kind of Disco Generation stupidity about Castro has been commonplace in establishment circles in Canada since Pierre’s time, and neither Alexandre’s gringo-splaining nor Justin’s aptitude for eulogy are sufficient to gloss over the many things Cubans have every right to complain about."

The hashtag #TrudeauEulogies is hysterical if you feel like taking a peek. 

And by hysterical, I of course mean I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IDIOT IS OUR LEADER.  

OMG, Seriously?!?!

This actually happened.

American "We Are All Jews Here" Soldier To Be Posthumously Honoured

Good. About time. 

"An American POW who protected 200 American-Jewish POWs during World War II will be posthumously awarded by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous."
"The foundation will bestow its Yehi Ohr Award on Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds, who refused to reveal to a German commandant during World War II which troops under his command were Jewish while being held at the Stalag IXA POW camp. The award ceremony will take place on Nov. 28 at the New York Public Library. His son, Pastor Chris Edmonds, will accept the award."

"Edmonds was captured during the Battle of the Bulge by the German army on December 19, 1944. As the highest ranking officer in the POW camp, Edmonds was responsible for the camp’s 1,292 American POWs. The camp’s commandant ordered Edmonds to identify the Jewish soldiers in order to separate them from the other prisoners. Instead, Edmonds refused, and when the German commandant placed his pistol against Edmonds’ head, demanding that he identify the Jewish soldiers, Edmonds responded “We are all Jews here,” refusing to identify the Jewish soldiers, thereby saving their lives"

Daniel Greenfield: The New War on Conservative Speech

This is a really good essay. 

The new war on conservative speech is the same old war on conservative speech.

It's all about The Shut Up. And The Shut Up only goes from left to right. 

You know, when the crybullies of the cast of Hamilton started their stupid hector-lecture of Mike Pence, he had really the best response "no biggie, that's what freedom sounds like". Damn, that was a good line.


"The war on fake news is a smoke screen for a campaign against conservative media. And it’s easy to see that it’s conservative sites that are the real target of the Facebook book burners."

"Social media allows people to form their own communities and become their own gatekeepers. That’s a potent power. The crusade against fake news is about putting the media gatekeepers back in charge."

Speaking of The Shut Up, here's the "Final" Statement from Geert Wilders. You know, that's a pretty creepy statement. Every moment he walks about Europe, he could be making his "final" statement and taking his final breath in life. 

That's the Shut Up Junction of our times, the point at which the radical political left is having its torrid, nihilistic love affair with radical Islam. These are dangerous times indeed.

And Now Back to My Favourite Sport: SteynSpotting UPDATED!


Steyn will be on Brian Lilley's show at 8:30 EST! Set your reminders accordingly!

It's that time of year again, when all the members of the vast, ZOG cackle in delight at the still, relatively unknown fact that the Jews own Christmas.

Yes, from the day after Hallowe'en to New Year's Eve, we Jews celebrate our total domination of the Christmas music scene. Given that Jews have written all the biggest, bestest, most Christmassy (and Christmastish if you want to make it more Jewish) music, I hereby declare it totally legit, and yea, even mandatory to listen to all Christmas radio all the time in the car (don't tell the Rabbis, it's just our secret, okay?!??!)

But wait, there's more!

T'is also The Season.

What season?



*dabs weepy eyes*

*pours self large glass of Manischewitz to drown sorrows*


OK I'm just joking around. IT'S ALL GOOD, ALL GOOD.

Just between us, and in case you were all worried and stuff, I have totally forgiven Mark Steyn for having a majorly Jewish name and not actually being Jewish. I'm totally cool with that-we're still good.


It's actually the Season of Festive SteynSpotting. 

(You may catch up on all things Steyn in general here.)

Mark Steyn will be on the Oakley show today (Wednesday) at 4:45 p.m EST. 

Right after that, at 6:15 EST, he will be speaking to Brian Lilley! 

But, I'm saving the best for last!

Steyn is substituting for Rush Limbaugh on Friday! Wheee!

(BTW, you don't have to have a subscription, you can listen on any number of EIB affiliates, on line for free...)


(PS: A little bird tells me there are lots of super cool elements to the show. Brain food, soul food, politics, arts, culture, news, schmooze, the new show has it all. You won't be disappointed. Order today!)

My Idiot People

"Why are Jewish Democrats Supporting Keith Ellison?"

Well, it's because they are leftists who just happened to have been born Jewish. That's why. Duh.

So this paragraph is quite good:

"Personally, I don’t care if Ellison ever did or still does hate Jews. He’s entitled to love and hate whomever he wants. What worries me is that a leading member of the extreme anti-Israel wing of the Democratic Party is poised to become the party’s chairman. What disturbs me is that the mainstreaming and elevating of this man—who, at the very least, is clearly more enthusiastic about Louis Farrakhan than he is about the State of Israel—is being done with the support of Sen. Chuck Schumer, and of organizations that claim to represent the interests of American Jewry."

On the good side, if the Democrats do this, it will really clarify that Jews who stay in the Democratic fold have made their choice once again: leftism over Judaism, utopianism over sanity and realism. 

(And enjoy this piece showing Greenblatt eating a sh&t sandwich.)

Leftist Jews will still be shrieking Hitler! Swastika in Bathroom! at Trump when the last of Europe's remaining Jews are slaughtered by Islamic terrorists.

So, I disagree with prosecuting someone for naming their baby after a murderer. This is state over reach. 

France doesn't know how to "fix" it's little terrorism problem, so it looks for headline-grabbing band-aid little fixes. Pathetic.

I prefer praying for this little guy instead of letting the disgusting French live in my head rent-free.

"Obama's Last Dereliction"

"While in Germany this week, Barack Obama had the opportunity to denounce the violence and extremism exhibited by some of the thousands of anti-Trump demonstrators who have flooded American streets since the election. He declined."

"Alongside Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday, the president passed on the opportunity to condemn the violent members of what have admittedly been mostly peaceful protests against Trump. Preferring instead to take a lofty philosophical view that this spasm of anxiety from America’s liberals was a generally healthy thing, Obama instead lectured to his successor about the value of America’s freedom of political expression."

“I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests,” Obama said. “So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.” The president closed by denouncing the demonization of opposing views. That was a special treat for Republicans of whom he had previously accused of allying with “death to America”-chanting Iranian hardliners."

I think that "last dereliction" is probably wishful thinking, and a little premature. 

Obama still has plenty of time to do plenty of damage. He's not happy about going out with a whimper and will likely try to make it a bang. 

America and Israel will most likely be on the receiving end.

Puh Lease Spare Me the Hysteria

So, my idiot people are suddenly getting the vapours about antisemitism.

And they are once again using what Kathy Shaidle has frequently called 'a crappy poem that should not inform immigration policy'.

This is shameful and dangerous. Antisemitism has never gone away in Europe. It's not making a resurgence because it never went away. It just became impolite to talk about it, and in many countries "hate speech" laws were passed to make it impossible to be a public antisemite. But it never went away. And it's not a "right-wing", "national" problem in Europe. Antisemitism is currently the intellectual property of the political left and radical Islam.

The picture in this article further illustrates the denial and the head-in-sand mentality of European Jewry and Leftist Jewry as well. Those soldiers are not guarding Jews in synagogues, at Jewish day schools and Jewish community organizations because of Donald Trump and no amount of pearl-clutching about Trump or Steve Bannon will make it so. Those who will not identify why they are standing guard, because of Islamic jihad against the Jews, are in terribly dangerous denial.

Now, thanks to the elites of Europe, with a very special shout out to Angela Merkel, antisemitism has made a very vibrant, public comeback. And this "neo-Nazi" Jew-hatred pre-dates the American elections by quite a number of years. Europe will not be able to recover. America may.

So, I Love This

Mazel Tov!

Book Nerd Post!

This is great.

Read the whole thing: 

‘To read is not a virtue; but to read well is an art, and an art that only the born reader can acquire,’ the novelist Edith Wharton insisted in her essay‘The Vice of Reading’ (1903). Wharton wrote that the ‘mechanical reader’ lacked ‘innate aptitude’ and the ‘gift of reading’, and could never acquire the art."

"By the 20th century, reading had been elevated into an art form, with intellectuals drawing a line in the sand."

"In fact, the act has become so prestigious that reading to a child signifies parental competence, at a minimum, and moral and cultural superiority, at best. A parent reading to a child in a public space is making a declaration to the world – and so lofty is the activity that mothers and fathers now devote considerable time and resources towards encouraging children to physically embrace the book. It is not uncommon to see a toddler perched in a child seat in a car holding and looking at a little book."

"The Bookish Fools are still with us, but fortunately many readers are not simply interested in the performance. They still lose themselves in the text and actually fall in love with the stories they read. Regardless of medium, what matters is the very human aspiration to embark on this voyage. It’s not the performance, and not the optics that really matter, but the experience of the journey to the unknown."


This is really fluffy and happy.


I mean for real, and not for joking, you can't be doom and gloom and civilizational apocalypse 24/7!

The Dream That Is the Nightmare

For some reason, this time he looked younger.

He was a bit older than a toddler, but not at grade school age, and I think we were at at restaurant, or a movie theatre, or the foyer of some public place.

"Mommy, my tummy hurts," he said to me grasping his stomach.

"Your tummy hurts? Did you just say your tummy hurts," I say smiling.

"Yes, Mommy my tummy hurts."

"I'm so happy," I say to him, "not because your tummy hurts but because you are talking".

He looks at me, puzzled, just as he has in every other incarnation of The Dream that I have suffered through.

"Mommy, why do think I can't talk? Here we are talking right now. Why would you think that," he asks me, genuinely puzzled.

"I don't know," I tell him, "I have no idea why I thought you couldn't talk, because you're right, here we are having a conversation."

He looks at me and smiles and he jumps up on me, clinging to me with both hands around my neck, the purest hug. The love, it's physical. I am so happy, holding onto him and I spin him around, around, laughing. It's so real, I'm ecstatic.

"You're so silly, Mommy," he says. "I don't know why you thought I couldn't talk."

And then, as if a loud, unforgiving clap of lightening in a storm has cracked right above my head, I bolt out of my sleep, sit up straight and try to catch my breath.

There was no storm.

There was no conversation about the aching tummy. It was only my overactive subconscious and I cannot figure out whether it is engaged in tormenting me or in some merciful act of foretelling, and it's a devastating feeling.

As it's almost dawn.

A new day begins.

I tuck The Dream away again but The Dream has left its calling card and I know it shall return.

"The 'Borking' of Bannon"

Great title. 

"Harlem Gives President Trump A Chance"

VERY interesting article from the WSJ. 

I thought one of the bright moments of the Trump campaign was when he went right into the heart of some very troubled African American communities and simply asked "what have you got to lose"?

It was extremely clever and it resonated because it was the truth.

Read the whole thing.

Question: "When Will They Ever Learn"



American Disgrace

This is yet another reason why I couldn't be happier that the Obama era, and the Clinton State Department are finito, and going out with a whimper into the dustbin of history.

If I were in the Trump transition team, I would order Kristine Luken's body (parts) flown back to America on a military plane and buried with full honours.

Did India "Cure" Leonard Cohen's Depression?

An interesting piece from the BBC for your consideration:
"...he seemed to have fallen in love with the city," Malathi Narayanan, who worked with Cohen's music label, Sony Music, told me."

"She had managed to persuade the reclusive singer, now on his second visit to Mumbai in 2000, to attend a dinner hosted by company executives"

"He arrived in his single-breasted Armani linen suit, the corners frayed," remembered Ms Narayanan."

"He told me he wanted to buy a 'humble abode' in Mumbai. But he was put off by the red tape here," she said. Another time, Cohen joked to Mr Mathur: "I am settling down here. Why don't you find me a good Jewish bride?"

"But something more transformative happened to Cohen's visits to India for conversations with his guru and friends."

"Something, as he told [singer and writing collaborator] Sharon Robinson, 'just lifted' - the veil of depression through which he had always seen the world," wrote Simmons.

"Cohen told his biographer that over the space of several visits to Mumbai in the next few years, the clouds in his mind had lifted - by "imperceptible degrees this background of anguish that had been with me my whole life began to dissolve"."

"I said to myself this must be what it's like to be relatively sane," he told Simmons.

Oh Dear!

Social media is not for amateurs. 

Rest in Peace

Brave warriors, rest in peace. 

Never Fear, Europe!

Inspector Clouseau is on the case!

Great News: Tim Blair "Officially" Not Racist or Misogynist

The Official Kangaroo Court of Australia makes its "ruling". 

Well, isn't that special?!??!?!

*eye roll*


These disgusting organizations, whether government, arms-length or voluntary, need to be marginalized out of existence. 

Australians need to take a page out of the Steyn and Levant playbook.

And, you know, Mr. Steyn has actually graciously offered up his very own self (! ! ! ! ! ! ) for the fight Down Under.

These monstrous, virtue signalling, anti-democratic, evil and totalitarian enterprises need to be put out of business all over the Western world.

Tim Blair clearly has the stones for this fight, and Mark Steyn will be a formidable ally when Australians actually do officially declare war on this nonsense.  Maybe Andrew Bolt will join in?

Hate speech laws do not need to be "examined" anywhere in a democracy. They need to be obliterated from the books, and lawmakers need to be shamed into doing so.

As the great Prophet Mark Steyn, PBUH, has said on many occasions, you cannot put your faith in politicians to do the right thing. 

You have to make it impossible for them to continue to do the wrong thing. 



VDH Has a Crystal Ball

Here's how it's gonna go down: 

"The nexus of attack will not be a dramatic scandalous revelation — it will be intended to induce bleeding from a thousand tiny nicks and cuts, all designed to reduce his moral authority and thus his ability to ratchet back the progressive decade."

"Another trope, as we are now witnessing, will be of the hysterical policy brand: Trump will cook the planet, put y’all back in chains, conduct war on women, traumatize students, destroy dreamers — all the boilerplate extremism designed to put Trump on the defensive so that he will settle for half an agenda and “reach out” to cement his respectability as a “listener” before the court of D.C. fixtures, the campuses, the foundations, the think tanks, the media, the social circles of Silicon Valley and Wall Street."

"The Siren strategy of the Left will also be to point out that his future is already destabilizing America — Trump must therefore reach out right now to the “disaffected” in the streets who are “hurting.” Thereby, he will “heal” the nation, if only he backs off from “right-wing” and “extremist” ideas of selling coal overseas or building a wall and taxing billions of dollars in remittance from illegal aliens to pay for it."

Mark Steyn Commemorates A Bright Jewish Light Going Out Naturally, and an Unnatural Darkness in Paris

Do read Mark Steyn's magnificent tribute to Leonard Cohen here. 

It's so beautiful and lyrical, I won't excerpt. It made me very sad, but so very proud of Cohen's Jewish soul. Having left his physical body, he is blessed to have left the people on Earth with a huge body of art, music and words that we will enjoy for the ages. What a blessing.

Then, he discusses the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack at the Bataclan theatre.

Very dark stuff, but that's where we are at.

Fight the Shut Up

As Mark Steyn always says: pay very close attention to the people who are telling you to shut up. 

The people who own the Shut Up own the power.


Don't let them have their way.

Very Clever


CNN Journalist: Umm, Yeah, We Were Delusional

I'm dying! 

As I Predicted!

I had a feeling this was coming and and the symbolism is just delicious.

This is so great. 

The house built on sand instead of the rock of consensus is falling, and I can't say I'm too busted up about it.


Your moral, intellectual and debating superiors. 

So, where do I actually get my "moron" credentials?

I mean, if there are "certified" morons, I'd like to finally get my official papers.

"Put on Some Lipstick and Look Alive"

This is an absolutely magnificent essay. 

Read the whole thing.

"In 1996, a few years after the democratization of Czechoslovakia, my grandmother walked into a Jewish Agency in Manhattan to apply for restitution from the German government for her financial losses during WWII."

"Halfway through this procedure the interviewer left the office to confer with his superior. My mother, raised in the ruins of the Holocaust and herself a refugee of the Warsaw Pact Invasion, was drained, emotionally and physically. Slumped in her chair, pale and teary eyed, she watched in wonder as my grandmother made her way to a mirror on the wall to fix her hair, straighten her blouse, reapply makeup."

"When she was satisfied, my grandmother turned to my mother, saw her drawn and ashen face, and said, quite plainly, “Put on some lipstick. Look alive.”

America the Beautiful


A thousand times this. 

The Ugly Reality of Jew-Hatred in the UK

A very horrifying, reality-based assessment of the current status of Jew-hatred in the United Kingdom from Melanie Phillips.

It's absolutely terrible and tragic. 

"Jew-hatred is not a prejudice like any other. No other people or group is singled out as a demonic conspiracy, a malevolent force of quasi-supernatural powers. And this same derangement is directed against Israel."

"This cannot be admitted because of the deep antipathy against treating the Jewish people as special. Resentment over the idea that the Jews were "chosen" for supposedly preferential treatment is matched by resentment that they appear to be "chosen" for a special kind of hatred."

"Modern society is, after all, an equal opportunity hater; the mantra of equality demands nothing else. Jews just aren't allowed to be different. Yet that's the essence of the hatred against us; and it's the reason why that hatred is denied, too."

A New Pen and a New Phone


This piece discussing how President Elect Trump may undo large chunks of the Obama legacy...(I just love saying that, I love writing that).

President Obama's incredible hubris has ironically paved the way for the (easier) undoing of his legacy. How does "we won" feel right now, my special snowflake darlings?

"He wanted to be “transformative” and, to make it easier, he acted unilaterally. But he also made it easier to undo his legacy. With a phone and a pen."

Super Smart Jew Daniel Greenfield: "The Obama Era is Over"

This may be one of my favourite articles summarizing the elections.

Even just saying 'the Obama era is over' makes me smile.

Read the whole thing.  

"Obama and his supporters loved talking about history. His victory was historic. They were on the right side of history. History was an inevitable arc that bent their way.

"The tidal force of demographics had made the old America irrelevant. Any progressive policy agenda was now possible because we were no longer America. We Were Obamerica. A hip, happening place full of smiling gay couples, Muslim women in hijabs and transgender actors. We were all going to live in a New York City coffee house and work at Green Jobs and live in the post-national future."

"The past was gone. We were falling into the gorgeous wonderful future of dot com instant deliveries and outsourced everything. We would become more tolerant and guilty. The future was Amazon and Disney. It was hot and cold running social justice. The Bill of Rights was done. Ending the First and Second Amendments was just a clever campaign away. Narratives on news sites drove everything."

"But there is no right side of history. There is only the side we choose."

"The Obama era was permanent. It was history. Now it is history."

The Great Caroline Glick on Trump

This article is so great.

I've read it several times because I loved it so much. 

"The striking friendliness of the Trump election team is even more notable when we consider what Israel would have faced from a Hillary Clinton administration. Clinton’s cabinet in waiting at the George Soros-funded and John Podesta- run Center for American Progress contained no serious advocates of the US-Israel alliance."

"And her stable of advisers were not merely indifferent to Israel."

"The WikiLeaks revelations from Podesta’s emails, like the correspondences published by Judicial Watch from Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, made clear that Clinton’s team included several advisers with deep-seated hostility if not animus toward Israelis and toward the Israeli government. The third thing that is already clear about the nature of the Trump administration is that it will not hesitate to abandon received wisdom on a host of issues and initiate policies that the bipartisan policy elites wouldn’t be caught dead even talking about."

"Trump’s victory was first and foremost a defeat for the American elite, what Prof. Angelo Codevilla memorably referred to as America’s “ruling class.”

"Trump’s campaign did not merely target the Democratic establishment. He attacked the Republican establishment as well. True, in his victory speech Trump said that he intends to heal the rifts in American society – presumably starting with his own party. But at least one thing ought to be clear about that reunification. As the president-elect, Trump will set the terms of the healing process."

Things That Make Jew-Haters Sad

Well, Well, Well What a Week!

To quote the legendary Jewish comic, the late, so so so great Joan Rivers of blessed memory:

CAN WE TALK?!?!?!??!?!?!??!

I mean for real and not for joking: CAN WE TALK?!?!??!

So I have been saying for many, many months that President Elect Donald Trump would be 1) better than Obama, and not possibly worse 2) better than Hillary Clinton and not possibly worse and 3) better for America, Israel, the Western world and thus, civilization.

I was very worried, nauseous, etc...throughout the campaign but people who know me also know that I repeatedly said that I would not be surprised if there was a repeat of what happened in Israel and then with Brexit. The media and political, and artistic elites projected their hopes and dreams but facts are stubborn creatures.

Anyway, Mark Steyn has been on fire lately, and there's lots of most excellent stuff to read on his site. 

As he put it in this very nice interview with Evan Solomon "the base said nuts to you". And actually, kudos to Solomon because he is asking very good questions and actually letting Steyn answer (not everyone does).

My amazing friend Kathy Shaidle always advises people that the real story is always in the comment section of on-line news items. She is correct. That's where the real people live (until they are censored, or banned by moderators, or until comments are shut down).

Put another way: The comment section won this election, baby. 

Or perhaps this way: “The trolls won,” he said, calling this election, “the comment section against the article.”

This result, of course, was the result of the constant sneering at regular people, who want their regular, Western way of life and do not wish to apologize any more for that. 

As Steyn says:"You push the people too far, and the people push back the elite."

He mentions Brexit of course as an example. But this exact thing happened in Israel as well, before PM Netanyahu was elected with a majority government. Exactly the same media sneering and huffing and puffing.

(Read all of Steyn's latest stuff here at Steyn on Line.)

The Steynian discussion about the left's Reducto Ad Hitlerium is exactly as Mark...(AHEM, CAN I CALL YOU MARK, SHE WONDERS??? OH FABULOUS AND GREAT THANKYOUVERYMUCH!!!)...


...says: "when everybody's Hitler, nobody's Hitler".

Steyn's debate loser colleague Simon Schmattah Brain, is all about The Hitler.


Apparently, the sky was going to fall, and economies were gonna explode if Trump won. 

The markets might never, ever recover! 

Sigh. Lefties. Frequently wrong, never in doubt.

The lefty world is crumbling, and I can't say I'm very sad about it.

In fact, I find it rather glorious. 

Or put another way "hey-how do you like us now"?

Hey elites: "You built this. Now suck on it."

"You jerks thought we normals were terrible and stupid when you thought of us at all. How do you like us now? Are you worried that an unfriendly executive branch might unleash its dogs at the, say, IRS upon you? That bureaucrats might destroy the entire industry that you work in, that supports your family, to satisfy the whims of the regime’s ideology? That the government is heading toward the time when it might send armed federal agents to your house to arrest you for exercising your constitutional rights?"

"Welcome to the last eight years as a normal."

"We rejected corruption. We rejected the elites who hold us in contempt. We rejected the political correctness and its posse of lies that was designed to silence us, to make us kneel, bow and obey. We stopped politely asking for respect – we took it. And there’s nothing you can do about it."

"We are the majority – at least of electoral votes, suckers – and we are awake. This election shows that we are no longer going to be silent."

Yes, Obama West wing staffers: everything "everything he and they worked for seems set to be ripped out by the roots". 

Please G-d make it so. 

Maybe Mamma Merkel will be next (although I think Europe is finished and probably irreversibly screwed). 

Like I said, better for the Jews, better for the West, better for America.  

On another note, I really really pray that this despicable, simpleton socialist Pope will butt out. 

You know, one political truth as the Great Prophet Mark Steyn, PBUH always says, is that lefties are serious (deadly serious) about power, but there's another thing one can say about them with great confidence and certainty:

They are sore losers. 

So, yes, thank you for asking. Yes, I'm pretty happy. And no, they would not treat you with any modicum of reciprocal civility, so don't expect it and don't play by their rules.

And also I can't stop looking at these!!!!!

Out, out damn Trump, they shriek! Get thee to therapy, and quickly too! 

I am in the wrong line of work. I need to be a therapist, and take $300 an hour from sobbing leftists with money to burn. 

Repeat after me: There was no shvesterhood. Get over it. 

Even worse! Get thee to SIT SHIVA (mental cases). 

Interesting times and anniversaries. 

Remembrance Day tomorrow, Kristallnacht commemorations. Very interesting times and clusters of events.

On another side note,  I think Melania Trump will be a lovely First Lady (and I think it's fabulous that this POTUS has Jewish grandchildren-how great is that).

But for real and not for joking, and y'all know I am a fully red-blooded heterosexual, if this is true, if this was intentional trolling, well I could be converted to lesbianism. This would be Troll Level Master Ninja if it were true.

Obviously, there is still much to talk about, and we will surely do so in the coming days and weeks and months.

Absolutely Fantastic Stuff: Meet Israel's Arab Soldiers

Good stuff. 

This is a very interesting piece and there is a documentary that goes along with it.

These are very brave young people, and they are the real key and the real link for coexistence in Israel.

I actually think it's very moving and totally remarkable to see an image of a Muslim Israeli being sworn into the IDF with a Koran. Serving in the army means upward social mobility for minority men. Serving in the army would also be a tremendously liberating force particularly for Muslim and Christian young women from various Arab towns and villages.

Watch the whole thing. It's really quite inspirational to hear Muslims and Christians talk so freely and honestly about their desire to give back something to the state, and to hear how much a part of the state of Israel they feel. This kind of thing gives me a lot of hope.

Let's For Sure, Totally Make Peace With These People

"Over 200 US government-approved textbooks administered in hundreds of Palestinian UNRWA-sponsored schools are reportedly teaching Arab children between the first and ninth grades to kill Israelis, and sacrifice themselves as martyrs to drive Jews out of the country."

"The violent curriculum can be found in 240 books – ranging from civics to mathematics – in over 400 UNRWA schools in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, said experts at a Tuesday conference for the Center for Near East Policy Research in downtown Jerusalem."

Curiouser and Curiouser

There are some very deep and mysterious mysteries happening in Europe right now.

Why might Germans want to build a wall? 

A mystery!

Who might be religiously motivated to destroy religious icons?  A mystery!

Why has sexual crime gone up so much in Germany? Another mystery. 

Plus, a report of wave of child rape in Malm枚, Sweden in broad daylight.

How To Send GIF's In WhatsApp

You're welcome! 

OMG: Netflix to Air "Fauda"!!!


Do not, I repeat do not miss this series. 

It is absolutely gripping.

Seriously. DO NOT MISS THIS. 

Israeli TV is so excellent lately. It has really gone from schmaltzy "special", goofy stuff to creative, smart, well-acted and innovative in about a decade. It's like finally, the Yidische kopf was put to work in the entertainment industry.

So many great ideas. Israel is really start-up nation not just for technology but also for incredible TV programming ideas. So much creativity, I'm rarely disappointed.

Where to Get Your Hair Cut By A Broadway Actor in NYC For $3

You're welcome! 

Is There Another Nation Like Israel?

I saw this first thing in the morning. 

Is there another nation, first of all, that dances with its holy book in this way? That celebrates the word like a bride or groom, with music and with such joy?

What other people could celebrate the saving of a holy book from a genocidal regime, what other people would name their son after a lone survivor (himself named after the prophet Samuel), to make sure that his name lived on, and then dedicate the same holy book at the Tomb of Samuel the Prophet in memory of their infant son Samuel who died-and to so with such sincere conviction and joy?

This is a humbling, humbling slice of life.

Dear Germany...

Have you learned nothing? Nothing at all?

"Light and Truth": An Epic, Free Speech Horror Story Out of Yale University

This is not just the tale of one professor, it is the tale of Western culture, or what remains of it. 

As Mark Steyn noted last week on his spot on the John Oakley show, the goal nowadays is not to win the argument, and nobody even has a concern about losing the argument because it's all about shutting down the argument, and making certain topics forbidden and giving every non-conformer and every free thinker, and every contrarian a nice, big, fat, steaming cup of Shut Up.

If you think I'm kidding, sit down and read the story of Professor Erika Christakis, a registered Democrat, who shares her harrowing tale. 

Here's how she describes the Thoughtcrime environment on campus:

"For seven years I lived and worked on two college campuses, and a growing number of students report avoiding controversial topics — such as the limits of religious tolerance or transgender rights — for fear of uttering “unacceptable” language or otherwise stepping out of line. As a student observed in the Yale Daily News, the concept of campus civility now requires adherence to specific ideology — not only commitment to respectful dialogue."

"Light and Truth"

As a result of her sending one, single, solitary e-mail about Hallowe'en (yes, you read that right), her and her husband were hounded, calls for their dismissal were made, their colleagues (save a few brave souls) threw them under the bus, and she ended up resigning her post. Naively, she had some kind of misplaced faith in her administration. When push came to shove, ultimately and predictably, Team Shut Up won. The bloodthirsty social justice warrior mob wanted a scalp, and a scalp was got.


"There was no official recognition that the calls to have us fired could be seen as illiberal or censorious. By affirming only the narrow right to air my views, rather than helping the community to grapple with its intense response, an unfortunate message was made plain: Certain ideas are too dangerous to be heard at Yale."

How quickly Yale evolved from "Light and Truth" to Lights Out, No Truth

No truth, no conversations. No actual intellectual exchanges or legitimate triumph of ideas through reasoned, adult discussion.  No debate and therefore: no freedom and no liberty. 

This is a terrible story, and it is repeated all over the Western world on a daily basis in every city in every work place. 

More people need to stand up to this nonsense and stop being afraid.  

If more people simply put their names to their views, the baying throngs of bullies would immediately find their power significantly deflated. 

You want to neutralize the evil instead of just snivel about it? Then you have to stand up even for the small stuff, because the bullies are never satisfied. And by the way, the "small" stuff is always the big stuff. Always. 

No they will not "just" leave you alone and it will always get worse. 

Anonymity is for losers. Anonymity is a big part of the problem. 

You have to live unafraid and take your lumps. 

To live in constant fear, cowering before the altar of proscribed speech, thought and behaviour is to 'live' barely half a life. 

That is the Light, and that is the Truth. 

Baby Steps...

Wonderful story.

As always, there are some incredible programs and lectures scheduled.

Magnificently Poignant: "The Lost and the Saved"

Read the whole thing and take a few moments to really consider the haunting photographs:

"At the station, Avigail watched as the iron locomotive ground to a halt, its billowing smoke rings swirling through the crisp air of the September afternoon. As Avigail and her mother waited and waited, the anticipation was mounting. Reluctantly, Adel’s face turned white as she boarded the train holding Avigail’s hand. At the last moment, Manis appeared with the look of a defeated man. There was no family at his side."

"Adel remained silent, her sad eyes following the suitcase as she passed it through the window into the large rugged hands of Manis. Avigail remembered that she pushed her head out the window as Manis, frozen in time, motionless, was left holding the suitcase. As the train departed, Avigail watched as Manis became smaller on the horizon until he disappeared into the distance. This memory, she said, was as vivid today as it was more than 75 years ago."
"Adel and her daughter Avigail headed to Istanbul, boarding a freighter to Palestine. It was during their voyage home that they learned theirs was the last ship to depart before the Nazi blitzkrieg of Poland. They, too, could have been trapped. Instead, they headed to Palestine to build a new life and a new country."

"Manis, his wife, his wife’s parents, and their children would disappear. History records that by 1942, the entire Jewish population of Sniatyn was brutally murdered in the nearby forest, or sent to their death in Belzec concentration camp."

My October Surprise!

Now, you know I took a little writing break over the past month.

In an excruciatingly ironic twist of fate, I took my break just as Mark Steyn returned to the Internet the radio and (very, very soonly) other newfangled technological modes of communicating with me us.

Did I write me?





Now is the time we must cue up the appropriate background music for this post (Nat King Cole and Frank's renditions for your listening pleasure). 

I got the October Surprise of a lifetime when I got back to writing! I'm devastated.


*wipes wistful Zionist tear from face*

What could this all be about?


Apparently, I am the last woman in North America (or possibly on planet earth, damn you, stupid stupid stupid Internet) to find out that Mark Steyn can be purchased for a measly $89!?!??!?! 



*Goodbye cruel world.*

I've known for a long time just what Mr. Mark Steyn is, but I never knew the price. 


*whips out credit card*

*feels some relief*



Now is your chance to catch up on SteynStuff from October, there's a spot from the Oakley Show which contained a most excellent and pithy nugget about the nature of war against free speech and how the goal in politics nowadays is not to win the argument, but rather to ban the argument entirely.

Here's Steyn on America, in "Laws Are For the Little People":

"...I'm touchy about the corruption because I'm a foreigner and I've lived in countries with clean government. Perhaps I'm sensitive to the contempt in which a put-upon middle-class is held because I've spent much of the last year in wealthy first-world countries (France, Sweden, Germany) that are on the verge of implosion over their delusional immigration policies. But the indifference from influential conservatives to both the despair and the naked corruption is deeply disturbing."


And this cheerful, timely reminder: "The left is serious about power, and they don't waste time."

On Europe, "Descent into Evil"

"The hills are alive with the sound of child rape, but in the halls of justice, amidst all the celebrations of diversity, no one can hear their screams."

Speaking of that horrible Schama, you may or may not have heard that a well-known Israeli journalist has just resigned from all of his cushy gigs, having confessed to multiple episodes of some rather inappropriate behaviour, apparently confusing (alleged) sexual harassment with courtship-hey maybe that's the way they thing about these things in Europe now as well. Not surprisingly, Simon Schama was one of Shavit's biggest cheerleaders. Funny that. This piece by Seth J. Frantzman is well done. 

The pathology of "overlooking" inappropriate behaviour is a pattern in America and in Europe. It would appear that the degree to which one is scrutinized and punished (by the media, the court of public opinion and by the judiciary) largely depends on one's political affiliation. This is something that Steyn pointed out when he asked several months ago what the difference was between Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton. 

("What difference, at this point, does it make?")


I also quite liked this essay, there's too much good stuff to excerpt, but this nugget made me laugh out loud (a rather silly little Zionist snorty cackle if you must know):


"Thursday's Wikileaks brought forth the revelation that, at the highest levels in the Hillary campaign, senior officials had been wondering what precisely is the difference between credibly accused sexual predator Bill Cosby and credibly accused sexual predator Bill Clinton. My post on the topic prompted Professor Larry A Feig of Tufts University to write to me:

Cosby drugged women you asshole

Larry A Feig, PhD
Professor of Developmental, Molecular & Chemical Biology
Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences
Tufts University

"I'm not a PhD, but I think there should be a comma between "drugged women" and "you asshole"."


And there should probably also an exclamation mark after "asshole", or at least a measly period. 

So do yourselves a YUUUUUUGE favour and catch up on all of October.

And go order your show subscription today. 

By the way: 

I've set up a Go Fund Me page to help me pay for the therapy that I need to get through the soul-crushing disappointment of missing the first ever, and probably only, public auction of Mark Steyn. 

Any leftover money once I am fully cured, will go to a very good cause: The Suburban Zionist Hermes Scarf Fund (not a charitable organization, cannot issue tax receipts). 


*reluctantly goes back to everyday life, resolved to slave away on her back-breaking work, day in and day out over a hot, steaming keyboard*
