What A Cowardly Scam

So my buddy scaramouche has written up this excellent little bit which is on the surface, about the Official Jews 'not getting the memo' about how this hate speech stuff works. 

Here's what I think.

I think that these lefty Jewish organizations are excellent at fighting the battles that have already been won.

As an example, I think this particular Professional Jew is is pompous and obtuse, but he is not stupid.

These guys know very well that Islamic Jew-hatred is the problem but it's not good for business and they are terrified, pretty much sh&tting in their fancy suits.

"Hate" and antisemitism are good for business. 

A 1,000% increase in donations?!?!? Can you imagine?

Note to Professional Lefty Jews: Please do solicit me for a donation after you have successfully made your "hate speech" pitch at a mosque of your choice.

Maybe that one in Montreal?

As my friend Kathy would say: what a bunch of fairies.

The War on Swastikas makes the Professional Jew Caste look like they are doing something when in fact they are not only doing nothing to "fight" antisemitism, in some cases, they are making it worse. Because regular non-Jewish people are pretty sick of being collectively accused of being Nazis, or Secret Nazis, or Sooooooper Seeeekrit Nazis just because they are not Jewish and not leftists.

You know how many times I have to Jew-splain that these people are primarily leftists, they belong to the Church of Leftism, but they were merely born Jewish?

I'm getting pretty tired of it!

I keep Jew-splaining and Jew-splaining. 

Some of my best friends also keep trying to STEYNSPLAIN THIS. 

*waves*

So I see this this latest asinine campaign more like an unofficial mea culpa.

The Official Dumber and Dhimmier Than A Bag of Hammers Jews know VERY well that the enthusiastic embrace of "hate speech" has officially boomeranged on the Jews and it is theory fault, and this is just a CYA right now.

They are doubling down on how great the "hate speech" laws are but still are foolishly clinging to the fantasy that they will only be applied to Jews. Fat chance!

Hate speech laws are despicable and stupid. Just like "fighting antisemitism". We need only fight the antisemites. Let them hate us all they want.

These lefty Jews and the double-down are truly delusional.

They remind me of Angela Merkel.

Will President Trump Deal the Death Knell to Identity Politics?

OK even if you do not read this article you have to admit that it is pretty spectacular that I used the world KNELL.

Is that an underrated word or what?

Note also "Deal" + "Trump".

YES I DID THAT ON PURPOSE.

Geez, what do you think this is?? Amateur hour???!

Anyway, I really just happened upon this column via Real Clear Politics and I thought it was quite interesting and the idea of identity politics being dead and buried, going the way of the dodo bird, the Edsel, etc.. was really too delicious not to read. Were it to come to pass! That would be grand.

Admission:

I'm still really annoyed and pissed about Dr. Gorka. 

Like really, really. I think it's a very bad move.

And I'm not at all convinced that Steve Bannon (LOVE THIS, well played, ZOA, well played) and Dr. Gorka will be able to support the MAGA agenda 'better' from the outside.


It seems to me that President Trump won because Americans wanted MAGA inside the White House.

But what do I know?

I'm just a suburban Jewish mom, scribbling the odd Zionist, Western Supremacist paean from time to time while day dreaming about Mark Steyn   WHOOOOOOOOPSIE...MAKE THAT
world peace.

*waves*

SORRY IS IT HOT IN HERE? 

POLITICS SCHMOLITICS WHERE WAS I????

Hmmmm...MAGA MAGA MAGA.

Right.

The Trump administration.

Donald J. Trump is the President.

He won. 

Among other things, that means that he gets to make hiring and firing decisions for the White House, correct?

Apparently, John Bolton is also not welcome in the White House. 

Those are not small or good things.

I'm trying to have a 'wait and see' attitude, but some of these staffing issues deeply concern me.

If Nikki Haley becomes Secretary of State, I may breathe a little easier, though I do believe that those Jew-hating fumes at the State Department can have the potential to make an incredibly dangerous and corrosive impact on even the most philosemitic, Westernophilic human souls.

Mark Steyn: The Mood Music of Mohammad

OH MAH GAWD SO GOOD. 

(And when I say good, I mean STEYN GOOD, SUBJECT BAD-REALLY REALLY BAD."

What does the mass rape of women, and indeed the mass rape of Europe show us?

Not simply that evil exists.  As Mark Steyn points out.:

"It shows us how easily a once civilized people get used to pure evil - at first declining to notice it, to let it catch your eye, and then accommodating it and incubating it. You'll be surprised how quickly such an attitude becomes universally understood, so that the few who insist on noticing, on not accommodating it become the real problem. See no evil, hear no cries of the victims, speak no forbidden thought of the motivations behind today's terror attack, and tomorrow's, and the day after..."

"So female shoppers in Finland get stabbed by murderous Muslims, and Buckingham Palace is in lockdown because of a man from Luton. Lie back and think of a lost England - and a lost Europe."

And what could possibly be wrong with that?

Reflections and Messengers

I wanted to share a story of reflection and a story of a messenger. Well actually two messengers.

The first story is about forgiveness and how liberating it is to forgive and also to be forgiven.

The details of the event are not particularly important, but I will share that when I was in grade school, I did not invite a particular classmate to an event. I didn't have any particular reason to exclude her, and though it is not an excuse, I do specifically remember being egged on by the much more beautiful and much more popular girls not to invite her. How I wanted to be pretty and popular! They were so beautiful, they all had boyfriends, they all got into he coveted, extracurricular "advanced jazz" club, and I was woefully uncoordinated. Though I could always make people laugh, and was dubbed by some of my friends parents as being the 'little philosopher' what I really wanted was to be pretty, to be one of the dancers. That's what looked good to me. I wanted that.

My classmate got word of my not inviting her and she actually confronted me about it. I can't remember if it was before or after, but I do remember having a conversation with her in the girls' washroom. I remember even then being impressed that she had the guts to speak directly to me about it. I was terrifically uncomfortable-rightly so. She was right, and I was wrong. She was right to come right to the source and I deserved the uncomfortable chat.

Anyway, it has been bothering me for decades. As it happens, we are Facebook friends-a number of former grade school and high school classmates have looked me up and we have re-connected. I get a real kick out of it.

I finally summoned the courage to ask for her forgiveness for this particular mean act. It was certainly one of the meanest things I ever did as a child and as I say, I never thought of myself as a mean girl.

She was so gracious and forgave me completely, even going as far as to reassure me that she had most certainly not been thinking about it for decades as I had, and that I had always been extremely nice to her, never a mean girl and that in fact, it was her "popular" and pretty "friends" who had been much more disappointing to her over the years. She said she had also been in my position before, asking for forgiveness and her experience was also that she was much more troubled throughout the years than the person she had allegedly wronged.

I'm so relieved. A real weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Perhaps for some, this act would seem inconsequential, but it has bothered me, as I say, since grade six. It's a pity I waited so long to summon the courage to ask but I'm so glad I finally did it.

Messengers:

There is a concept in Judaism called "Hashgacha Pratit".

It literally means 'personal [divine] supervision-or providence in English. But the concept basically describes what one might call a personal interaction, or personal experience with the divine, with G-d. 

These experiences do not have to be major events. They can be very simple ones. They can be those strange "coincidences" that have absolutely no explanation. The moments where you experience something, or you interact with someone and that chances of that interaction happening are so incredible that it can only be explained by looking upward.

It's running into someone you know in a foreign country thousands of miles from home. It's meeting someone who wasn't supposed to be there at that time, and they change the course of your life. It's reading a phrase that makes you the person you are. Or hearing a chance piece of music that makes you weep-but only you.

There are messages everywhere and messengers everywhere, we just have to be open to them. Here is one such story.

I had walked my husband to synagogue one Sabbath before evening prayers, pushing my disabled son along in his manual wheelchair. Technically it's a "push chair", or that's what I call it to make myself feel less sad about it, but bottom line is: it's a wheelchair.

The Sabbath is a very quiet day for him, with no iPad and no other electronic distractions. Our main activity is our big, long walks. I knew that he would want to do our long route after "dropping off" my husband. Though in a big city, with lots of traffic going by, and though I was with my son, I told my husband that I felt acutely and completely lonely. The other children were at camp or with friends on a lake, and even though I was so happy that they were happy, the glimpse of my future-solitarily pushing my son in a wheelchair along as the sun set, did unsettle me somewhat.

As we got almost halfway through our route, I told my son that my legs were killing me and that I needed to sit down. He was not happy. He likes to move-not be stagnant. But I had done the "big walk" four times already that day, and I needed a few minutes to sit. I sat on the bench and he immediately popped out of the chair, and started to drag it i.e MOVE LADY, MOVE IT. I said, sorry I can't. I think he realized I meant business and so in lieu of getting me to move, he grabbed my face in his inimitable way and started hugging and kissing me.

From a distance, and in the thickest Scottish accent I have ever heard, came the most unusual sounds.

"Oh I'm so jealous! I'm so jealous! Look at that, I'm so jealous."

Because he had my head in a vice-like grip, I couldn't see where the voices were coming from, and assumed that I was going insane.

And then again-this time two separate Scottish, female voices:

"Ohh, wouldya look at that. I'm just so jealous! Oh me, too."

Then, out of nowhere on the path, appeared two (modern) Scottish grannies.

Composing myself, and after gratefully realizing that I was not (technically) insane, I said "oh yes, he's certainly my best friend".

And they said "oh, and what a best boyfriend he is".

We walked together for a few more moments, chatting about this and that, the weather and my son's pretty cool looking chair, and then I said that it was lovely talking to them and I was going to head home.

I realized in those few moments after that I wasn't lonely any more. That was just the right amount of company to make me feel not alone anymore. My pity party had dissipated as quickly as it had begun. I only wish I had told them how meaningful their kind comments were, and how they had actually quite literally saved me from having a good little cry on the park bench.

Messengers are all around us.

If you simply look around, keep your eyes and heart open and are actually really and truly open to their presence, you will always hear a message.

The UK Is Royally and Totally Screwed: Jew-Hate Edition

This is the start of the awakening.

"Jew hate has entered the political mainstream."

"Farewell to the Jew Who Made WASPs Look Like WASPs"

Him and Ralph Livshitz (Lauren)-Jews who made WASPs look like WASPs. Love it.

Great story. 

"[Julius] Hertling, who died last week at the age of 92, owned a clothing manufacturing firm that made menswear for, among other clients, J. Press, the most preppissimo of brands, since 1902. According to a eulogy delivered by family scion Richard Press, and quoted at Ivy Style, where I found it:

"Julie Hertling was a very special man, illustrated by his heroism in the Battle Of The Bulge during World War II. When I met him in the mid-’60s, he had the gruff intelligence, go-get-’em quality of a veteran, but he was a magnificent manufacturer, and made more than half our suits on J. Press patterns devised by Paul and Irving Press …"
"He’d always take me to De Monte’s, which is a pseudo-mafia hangout in Brooklyn. In his factory he had about a dozen tailors making trousers, and he introduced me to every single one, and knew each of their biographies."

"In the tradition of Southwick and Norman Hilton, Hertling’s suits and sportcoats were natural shoulder with high notch lapel, represented perfectly the J. Press Ivy League soft-shoulder model. His trousers, which were a specialty, were mostly plain front with 20-inch knee and 17-inch bottom, and his grey flannel trousers were quintessential trouser for J. Press. He began manufacturing for us in the mid ’60s and when I left J. Press in 1991, he was still the primary source for suits and trousers."

Jew-Hatred In Europe Update: Still A Bloody Mess And Jews Should Leave

Too depressing to excerpt.

Very Important Dennis Prager: Here Are Some Key Ways the Mainstream Media Distorts the Truth

Very, very, very well done.


"The Obscene Effort to Shame 'Trump's Jews'"

It is understandable that these leftists who were merely born Jewish, are trying to "shame" Jews who are not leftists. It's because their religion is leftism. 

Period.

That's how they see the world. They merely have tribal/social/historical connections to Judaism.

It's quaintly obnoxious and pathetic that they use the word "shanda" which is probably the only Jewish concept that they know about except for bagels and lox.

Regardless, the thing that probably irriates them the most is that President Trump has a Jewish daughter, a Jewish son-in-law and Jewish grandchildren. In other words, he has a child who has a Jewish spouse and has made Jewish babies.

I bet most of his "Jewish" critics cannot make the same claim and this bothers them on a very primitive and wordless level.

So basically, they can all bite me.

"All Roads Lead to Jihad"

Read the whole thing: 

"There are never any problems. Just unexplained explosions. Screams and booms. The sound of bones breaking against a wall and the angry roar of a motor. And, above them all, the cry of, “Allahu Akbar.”

"Meanwhile the same lies are told and retold."

"The terrorists were irreligious. The Islamic community claims to know nothing about them. Or about Satty. The president of one of the mosques sneered, “I doubt if any of them could tell you the color of the carpet in the mosque.” If only they had come more often, they wouldn’t have turned to terror."

"But the names of two of the terrorists are listed as donors to the mosque. And it’s the Imam who turned them on to terror."

"Still it’s easier to ignore the terrible truth of Islamic terror. Even when it hits close to home."

How Undercover Activists Targeted Breitbart and White Nationalist Sites and Their Advertisers


"The Sleeping Giants team began its campaign by tweeting at various companies, letting them know their ads appeared at Breitbart and explaining how to get rid of them. The tactic was a surprising success. Many companies blacklisted Breitbart from its ad buys, and a growing number of Twitter users took note and helped inform companies of their ad placement at the far-right hub of the racist “alt-right.”

“We didn’t think this would be more than two weeks long, so to say that it’s met or exceeded our expectations is not even close,” said the Sleeping Giants organizer. The primary Sleeping Giants Twitter account boasted nearly 105,000 followers as of August 22."

"Now, roughly eight months after Sleeping Giants began this effort, nearly 2,600 companies have removed their ads from Breitbart. The flow of deserting companies has quickened since the Charlottesville rally, the organizer said. These days, 15 to 20 companies are dropping Breitbart each day. Among those that have ditched Breitbart are Aveda, CVS, Etsy, Kellogg and TurboTax. Amazon, however, remains a holdout, despite employee efforts to persuade the company to remove its ads."

More here: 

"This is a fight for territory in the information warfare battlespace. The Left understands they can’t win in the political battlespace in the USA, and they realize that his use of social media helped Trump in 2016. So the Left needs to control the information warfare battlespace, which is run by private companies — who can decide the applicability of terms of service in whatever manner they choose, under our First Amendment, to banish any organization or citizen from their companies on the internet."

"It’s a smart plan. As usual, conservatives and libertarians still don’t know what’s hitting them, much less what lies ahead."

Teens Who Twisted Menorah Into Swastika To Meet With Holocaust Survivor

So, I've been thinking about this a lot. 

I'm normally very unimpressed with "antisemitism" stories about chalk swastikas on pavements, or in bathrooms. Big yawn.

I do remember this story because it does take a pretty twisted mind to think up such an act of vandalism. And it's not a spontaneous kind of thing, it's very calculated and designed for the maximum pain impact psychologically.

When people take Jewish symbols and turn them against the Jews, and simultaneously turn the Jews into the Nazis, it's really sick and evil.

So, perhaps these young people will actually learn something from this experience, and from a Holocaust survivor.

This punishment ("sentence") may indeed fit the crime.

Victor Davis Hanson: The War Against Memory

Really poignant.

Read the whole thing. 

"Abolition of memory is easy when the revisionists enjoy the high moral ground and the damned are evil incarnate. But more often, killing the dead is not an easy a matter of dragon slaying, as with Hitler or Stalin. Confederate General Joe Johnston was not General Stonewall Jackson and after the war General John Mosby was not General Wade Hampton, just as Ludwig Beck was not Joachim Peiper."

"Who of the present gets to decide whom of the past we must erase — and where does the cleansing of memory stop?"

"Defacing Mt. Rushmore of its slave owners? Renaming the double-whammy Washington and Lee University? Are we to erase mention of the heavens for their August 21 eclipse that unfairly bypassed most of the nation’s black population — as the recent issue of Atlantic magazine is now lamenting?"

"Revolutions are not always sober and judicious. We might agree that the public sphere is no place for honorific commemoration of Roger B. Taney, the author of the Dred Scott decision. But statue removal will not be limited to the likes of Roger B. Taneys when empowered activists can cite chapter and verse the racist things once uttered by Abraham Lincoln, whose bust was just disfigured in Chicago — and when the statue-destroyers feel that they gain power daily because they are morally superior."

The Joys of Multiculturalism: Female Genital Mutilation Edition

So, guess what.

There is no actual Canadian tradition of splicing off the clitoris of little girls with dirty razor blades.

I know. Crazy right? So, if it's not a domestic issue, it's an import.

Why can't this be stopped? I'd like to know why these barbarians are still being let into Canada to mutilate children.  

BTW: Shame on the evil, sinister, barbaric and horrific WOMEN especially who hold their daughters and granddaughters down to be mutilated. I vomit in their direction.

Here's how it all goes down:

"They were all about 7 years old when their mothers took them to a “cutter,” an older woman operating in a non-medical environment, such as a kitchen. The women were told to remove their underwear before the cutter swiped a razor at their clitorises."

"Two of the women the Star spoke with said they tried to run when they realized what was happening but they were held down, their legs forcefully spread by female elders."

"Luby Fidaali was 7 years old when her mother kept her home from school one morning and took her to someone she believed was a healer — an elderly woman who said prayers over her sore tummy from time to time when she was not feeling well."

"But when she got to the cutter’s house, Fidaali was told to sit on a small kitchen stool like those traditionally used to knead chapatis, she said, and was instructed to pull her legs apart."

"She glanced at the fire burning in a charcoal stove in the corner and didn’t see the cutter take out a razor blade. “Even when I think about it, it hurts,” she said recently, telling the story for only the second time in her life. She was instructed to sit near the stove and “take in the heat to help the healing.”

"Fidaali’s mother told her never to speak about her experience to anyone, including her father and siblings. She doesn’t begrudge her mother, she said, because she was simply “following societal norms in order to stay in the community.”

"Terror Is A Problem Political Leaders Have Imported Into Europe" (And North America)

The fearless Douglas Murray: 

Read the whole thing.

"You Shouldn't Have to Be Afraid To Go Outside Because You Are A Conservative"

So this happened. 

I'm trying hard not to think of how disgusting everything is.

Have not read too much about Boston because I find it very upsetting.

I believe first of all that calling everyone "Nazi" of course minimizes the actual evil of the actual Nazis.

I also believe that the people yelling "Nazi" have much more in common with the Nazis than the people they are yelling at.

As well, the people yelling "Nazi" are the ones who refuse to recognize who the real "neo" Nazis are of today.

Lastly, I think that the current "antifa" goons have a very clear goal.

Violence and intimidation are merely their disgusting, but predictable tactics.

The goal is the eradication of Free Speech/the American First Amendment.

Because without Free Speech, we cannot have any other freedoms.

Finally: A Major Dose of Truth From A Very Sensible European Rabbi

Listen to Rabbi Bar-Hen. 

European Jewry is doomed.

There is no Jewish future in Europe. 

North America is only a few generations behind where Europe is now.

Same with Australia.

Buy property in Israel (Jews and non-Jewish friends of Jews alike) is very sage advice. 

From the comments:

Rabbi Sacks: The Limits of Grief in the Jewish Mourning Process

I have had many conversations over the years with non-Jews about Jewish mourning rituals. I have always felt like Jewish mourning traditions are so incredibly respectful and appropriate. They prescribe very specific periods of time for specific stages, forbid excess mourning and also forbid under-mourning.

There is so much wisdom in the cycle of mourning, and I have also mentioned that even the mourner's prayer is an exultation of G-d.

This is an exquisite article from Rabbi Sacks. I'm really so glad he wrote it.

Do read the whole thing.

He has a real gift from Hashem, a real blessing.

"To lose a close member of one’s family is a shattering experience. It is as if something in ourselves had died too."

"Yet not to grieve is wrong; it is inhuman. Judaism does not command stoic indifference in the face of death. But to give way to wild expressions of sorrow — lacerating one’s flesh, tearing out one’s hair — is also wrong. It is, the Torah suggests, not fitting to a holy people; it is the kind of behavior associated with idolatrous cults."

"Halakhah, Jewish law, strives to create a balance between too much and too little grief. Hence the various stages of bereavement: aninut (the period between the death and burial), shiva (the week of mourning), sheloshim (thirty days mourning in the case of other relatives) and shanah (a year of mourning, in the case of parents). Judaism ordains a precisely calibrated sequence of grief — from the initial, numbing moment of loss itself, to the funeral and the return home, to the period of being comforted by friends and members of the community, to a more extended time during which one does not engage in activities associated with joy."

"The more that we learn about the psychology of bereavement and the stages through which we must pass before a loss is healed, the more that the wisdom of Judaism’s ancient laws and customs become even clearer."

A Beautiful Story of A Surprising Arranged Marriage and Impending Loss

"David and Elizabeth Weinlick’s life together began like a reality TV show, blossomed into two decades out of a romance novel, and now seems destined to end in tragedy."

"David Weinlick and Elizabeth Runze were strangers when they said “I do” in front of thousands of shoppers and in the national spotlight at Minnesota’s Mall of America in June 1998. Now it seems the thing that will end what they call “our great love story” is cancer, after David was diagnosed with terminal and inoperable stage IV colon cancer."

"They were brought together not by love or mutual attraction but by friends and family, whom David tasked with finding him the right bride. Nineteen years and four children later, it’s obvious Elizabeth, or Bethy, was the right choice."

"Would I Have Done the Same?"

Very poignant reflections from NBA star Roy Allen. 

"Would I have done the same?"

This is a very difficult question. It is extremely easy to posture about it.

Readers of my blog (when I was still blogging anonymously as the "Closet Conservative") may recall that I myself thought of, and experienced this very issue when I was in Poland with my father seven years ago.

When visiting the shtetls that my grandparents came from, I had the personal experience of meeting some random clerks in the "city hall" of the shtetl my late maternal Bubbie z"l, came from. I started asking through our taxi driver about my great-grandfather's house-he had a shul in it. He was a Rabbi and we looked in every town that we visited for the cemetery and the synagogue (we were so naive-most were razed to the ground). 

He became extremely hostile and agitated and bit off my head telling me 'if you want records, we don't have them here you will have to go to Womza (Lomza)'. Another female clerk gasped, and looked appalled and quickly came over to us to explain to our driver where the mass grave was and did we want to see it. He thought I was fishing for property restitution. He spit his words out and gave me a death glare. We declined and went about looking for the house (which we eventually found).

I realized in that moment that if we were in that time, back then, the male clerk would have turned us in, and the female clerk would have saved us. Two people, same jobs-in the space of 5 minutes of one another.

You know why there are antisemitic Jews, or as I like to call them "Jew-hating Jews" or "Jews for Jihad"?

Because they are leftists first and primarily-they were merely born Jewish.  Their religion is leftism.

If you understand that, you understand the whole phenomenon.

Can Europe Be Saved?

Probably not. 

This is an interesting review of Douglas Murray's new book: The Strange Death of Europe. 

I love the way people want to believe that what they are seeing in front of their own eyes is actually NOT reality.  They want the fantasy, not reality.

I think that is what actually defines a conservative mind-the willingness, and indeed the obligation to look at reality instead of retreating, as liberals do-to fantasy.

Solid Advice: Embrace Work, Embrace Pain

Good stuff. 

This Has Also Been My Own Experience

The left-wing men I have dealt with in various capacities, personal and professional, have been the worst sexists I've ever encountered.

Very interesting piece here. 

"Three cheers for Jess Phillips, one Labour MP who tells it like it is — even if it involves exposing the sanctimonious self-righteous posturing of the trendy Left in British politics."

"Her acid observation — reported in the Mail yesterday — that Left-wing men are 'the worst, the actual worst' when it comes to sexism is difficult to refute if you've witnessed as I have, male comrades locking horns over some ideological minutiae, while the 'sisters' take the minutes and make the tea."

"Speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the MP for Birmingham Yardley said while Left-wing men say they want equality 'they don't think of [women] on the same level', adding that the 'Left-leaning' were worse than those described as 'out-and-out sexists of the Right'."

"How Curious George's Jewish Creators Saved the Beloved Monkeys From The Nazis"

Wow.

Great story. Had no idea!

"...the story of Curious George’s creators is a fascinating one."

"Hans Augusto Rey (nΓ©e Reyersbach) and Margret Waldstein first met in Hamburg in the 1920s. Margret, who had studied art at the influential Bauhaus school and whose father was a member of the German parliament, left Germany for Brazil in 1935 to escape the rising tide of anti-Semitism. Hans had been working in Rio de Janeiro as a bathtub salesman. The pair, who had met over a decade before in Germany, married that year and moved to Paris."

"Hans worked as a cartoon illustrator for a newspaper, and Margret wrote copy. A French publisher was impressed with some of Hans’ animal drawings and suggested they work on a children’s book. Their first work was “Raphael and the Nine Monkeys,” and one of those monkeys would later become George."

"By June 1940, the situation in Paris looked grim as Hitler’s troops began to close in. Millions of people flocked to trains heading to the south of the country, and the Reys could not get a ticket.
They didn’t own a car, so they decided to flee by bike, as Louise Borden explains in “The Journey That Saved Curious George.” The only problem: They couldn’t find a bike anywhere, either."

"Somehow, Hans did something that sounds like a plot point in a children’s fantasy book: He made two bikes that night using spare parts. That incredible act likely saved their lives, as well as the future of the monkey that would become Curious George."

Good stuff. 

"You're Offended? SO WHAT?"

This is soooooooooooo good. 

Andrew Breitbart z"l used to say "So?" when his huffy puffy critics tried to shut him up because they were offended, or they thought that they had made an intelligent point.

"You're offended, so what?" is really excellent. Common sense, NOT SO COMMON.

I NEED THE T-SHIRT.

Or at least the mug.

I'd also add that if you are upset about something you see on your computer-just shut it off. Geez.

If you LIVE online, you will go crazy and have no real life.

And if that offends you, so what?

The Great Daniel Greenfield: This Is What The Swamp Looks Like

Really good: 

"The swamp is deeper than most understand or imagine. When you come to the city of government buildings and lobbyists, it’s all around you. And if you take a wrong step, it sucks you in. The real power doesn’t belong to the politicians you elect, but to bureaucrats and staffers, to the people who, like Huma Abedin or Dina Habib Powell, are talented at knowing the right people."

"When we talk about the swamp, it’s not an organization. It’s a way of life. If you’re not fighting the swamp all the time, if you don’t wake up resisting it and go to bed fighting free of it, you will drown in it."

Endorsed:

Rabbi Sacks: Why Civilizations Fail-Lack of Faith

Read the whole thing. 

"What is the real challenge of maintaining a free society? In parshat Eikev, Moses springs his great surprise. Here are his words:"

Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God. … Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. … You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ … If you ever forget the Lord your God … I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. (Deut. 8:11-19)

"What Moses was saying to the new generation was this: You thought that the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness were the real challenge, and that once you conquer and settle the land, your problems will be over. The truth is that this is when the real challenge will begin. It will be precisely when all your physical needs are met — when you have land and sovereignty, and rich harvests and safe homes ­– that your spiritual trial will commence."

Tim Blair: No Synagogue For You

He nails it. 

"Waverley Council declared that the application to build a synagogue “raises concerns as to the safety and security of future users of the Synagogue, nearby residents, motorists and pedestrians in Wellington Street.” Furthermore, “the physical measures proposed to deal with the identified threats will have an unacceptable impact on the streetscape and adjoining properties.”

"It’s not that the people attending the synagogue would have posed any kind of threat. Not at all. They’re as peaceful as can be. It’s that certain other people would be drawn to destroy the synagogue, and possibly take out a few non-Jews in the process."

"A reasonable person might conclude, then, that the problem involved not the synagogue but those intent on blowing up or otherwise attacking the place. Perhaps it might be an idea to deal with them instead, since they – not the synagogue and not Jewish people – are the source of any potential violence."

"But we’ve gone the other way, which opens up a whole new range of legislative and social issues. Now that we’re taking into account the attitudes of Islamist maniacs when it comes to urban design and planning, similar steps are clearly required in other areas."

Saddest Article of the Day: 9/11 Victim Identified 16 Years On

I read this article, via Natasha Fatah, and it made me really upset for a number of reasons. 

Obviously, I'm still angry about 9/11 and no-I won't forget it, or forgive it. 

I'm sad for the families who had their loved ones murdered by savages.

But there's something both infuriating and pathetic about a victim being identified 16 years after the attacks. Rather than see it as a forensic wonder, or as any possible kind of 'closure' for the family, I just feel angry that the victims of the attacks have become such an afterthought in our lives. Sixteen years on and we still have not truly identified the enemy, and we are losing ground to the enemy every day.

We lost precious lives at Ground Zero and we have lost precious ideological space and actual physical territory since then as well. I don't see that getting better, although I am slightly encouraged by the likes of individuals in the Trump administration such as Dr. Gorka.

But on the whole, I feel that the weary Western world hit the snooze button on 9/11.

I hope I've articulated my response to this article somewhat coherently. This remains a topic that I find very hard to write about. It's very hard to pull the words out of the emotions when I speak and write about terrorism.

Rita Panahi: The Bondi Synagogue Decision Rewards Terrorism

What she says:

"There’s something perverse about trying to reduce the risk of Islamist terror by making a decision that accommodates the most violent, intolerant members of the community.

Victim blaming has reached new lows when government authorities cave in to extremists and punish victims for being the targets of hate.

It’s akin to the twisted thinking that forces women to cover their bodies to reduce the incidence of sexual assault.

The rights of a peaceful religious minority should not be impinged upon in a free society. The Jewish community has every right to label this decision as “rewarding terrorism”."

The UK Is Screwed: British Higher Education Edition

This kind of made me laugh.

Not because it's funny, but because it's pathetic. 

"British universities warned that the growth of 'safe spaces' is inhibiting the free exchange of ideas."

HELLO?!?!

That is the point. Duh. 

The people who implement the puss-tastic 'safe spaces' want to inhibit the free exchange of ideas.

So warning them about it is dumb. Unless the warning is some kind of timid type of virtue-signalling for 'our' side. If so-LAME.

'Safe spaces' are macro aggressions on liberty.

The need to be summarily shut down.

That's it.

Douglas Murray on the Dennis Prager Show: The Strange Death of Europe

Meet Irving Naxson, the Jewish Inventor of The Crock Pot!

What a great story. 

Tablet really does keep the gems coming.

Wonderful article!

This guy was amazing. Look how inspiring the holy Sabbath is!

Read the whole thing:

"The inventor of the slow cooker was one of the tribe. Irving Naxon (ne Nachumsohn) applied for the first patent for a slow cooker in 1936. His daughter Lenore, who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, told me in an interview that her father was inspired by cholent. “His mother grew up in Vilna or wherever, and on Friday afternoons her mother would take a big crock and fill it with dried beans and root vegetables and a shtickel meat, and ask my grandmother to go to the local bakery and put the crock in the oven. The oven was turned off at the end of the day, but as it cooled it provided slow, even, diminishing-temperature cooking. Then [on Saturday] my grandmother was sent back to pick up the crock, and the stew was cooked. Dad asked himself, ‘How can I emulate this kind of slow, even cooking in a crock-lined pot?’

"Naxon’s patent was granted in 1940. His invention began life as “The Boston Beanery” (at various times it was also known as the Naxon Beanery and the Flavor Crock) and the original market was coffee shops and luncheonettes. “There was a gold one and a red one, so you could have one for milchig and one for fleishig,” Lenore recalled."

"The device was just one of Naxon’s over 200 patents, along with a portable washing machine on casters that attached via hose to a kitchen faucet, a frying pan with its own heating element, infrared and ultraviolet health lamps, a tabletop tub with an agitator for washing cloth diapers, and a tiny electric washer for doll clothes called Dollyduds. During WWII, Naxon invented a sonar submarine detector and an oxygen-flow indicator for aircraft used by the Defense Department. “And when you go to Times Square and see what they call the Zipper,” Lenore said of the electronic billboard that wraps around 1 Times Square and broadcasts a steady stream of headlines, “in an earlier incarnation it was the Naxon TeleSign. It sent data from The New York Times all over the world over telephone wires.”

Here's an excerpt from a fine article, but read the whole thing: 

"Hitler, Goebbels, and Fitzgerald all recognized culture was the first battleground: infiltrate the mainstream culture and you infiltrate the beliefs and lifestyles of the consumers. We’re not involved in an all-out fratricidal world war, but culture is no less important now than it was 80 years ago. So the next time someone tries to tell you to stop focusing on the culture so much, tell them you’re preserving liberty on the frontlines, as peacefully as anyone can."

The Man Who Changed His Life After Reading His Obituary

Nice piece via Chabad. 

"Thinking about how one’s obituary is going to read can motivate one to rethink how he is currently spending his life. No eulogy ever says he/she dressed well, lived extravagantly, took fabulous vacations, drove an expensive car, or built the most expensive home. I never heard anyone praised for being too busy at work to find time for their children. A call to someone who is lonely, a listening ear to a person in need, long walks with our children, saying thank you to a spouse and to G‑d, performing mitzvahs (acts of goodness and holiness)--are the essence of a life well lived."

"The people who are most mourned are not the richest or the most famous, or the most successful. They are people who enhanced the lives of others. They were kind. They were loving. They had a sense of their responsibilities. When they could, they gave to charitable causes. If they could not give money, they gave time. They were loyal friends and committed members of communities. They were people you could count on."

Hello Australia?!?!? WTF Is Wrong With You

"A local council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target, in a shock move that religious leaders say has caved in to Islamic extremism and created a dangerous precedent."

"The decision, which has rocked the longstanding Jewish community in the iconic suburb, was upheld in court this week as the nation reeled from the alleged airline terror threat and debate raged over increased security measures at airports and other public places."

"The Land and Environment Court backed the decision by Waverley Council to prohibit the construction of the synagogue in Wellington St, Bondi — just a few hundred metres from Australia’s most famous beach — because it was too much of a security risk for users and local residents."

"Jewish leaders are shocked the decision appears to suggest they cannot freely practice their religion because they are the target of hate by Islamist extremists — and that the council has used their own risk assessment of the threat posed by IS against it.

"The head of the local Jewish community said the council and the court had effectively stifled freedom of religion and rewarded terrorism."
