Hanukkah – The Festival Of Light And Freedom That Belongs to Us All

Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights .

While many of you may be familiar with the story of the Miracle of the Oil, what is frequently overlooked is that Hanukah celebrates another miracle. That was the miracle of a group of farmers and tradesman utterly defeating the professional armies of the Seleucid Empire. It was a victory for freedom that belongs to all of us alike, Jew and Gentile.

Hanukkah celebrates one of the important miracles in Jewish history and reminds us of the triumph of faith. It takes place every year,usually in mid to late December. While its date varies in the western calendar, in the Hebrew calendar Hanukkah always falls on the 25th day of Kislev.

Hanukkah celebrates the victorious Jewish war for independence in the second century B.C. E. The story is told in the First Book of Maccabees, and retold in the Second Book of Maccabees. A contemporary military history of the war can be found in Battles of the Bible, coauthored by Chaim Herzog and Mordechai Gichon.

After his death, Alexander the Great’s empire broke into several parts, and Israel was under the control of the Seleucid empire, based in Syria. Israel had lived peacefully under the Persian Empire and under the Ptolemic empire (of Egypt), both which tolerated Judaism. But the Seleucid Emperor Antiochus Epiphanes was an arrogant, bigoted Hellenizer, who attempted to force the Jews to abandon their religion and to adopt the Seleucid’s Greek customs and worship,which included idolatry. And his efforts were not without success in some quarters.

There were those Jews who considered themselves modern’ and assimilated’ who were willing to go along with this, even to the extent of having surgical operations to reverse circumcision.

Others did not, and they were prosecuted vigorously and brutalized by the Seleucid Greeks.

The start of the Maccabean Revolt sprang from a single spontaneous act of resistance. In the foothills village of Modiin in 167BCE, a Greek army unit set up an altar, and ordered the local Jewish rabbi, Mattathias, to sacrifice a pig and eat it. He refused, as did his five sons. When a Jewish collaborator came forward to offer the sacrifice, a furious Mattathias “ran and killed him on the spot. He then killed the king’s officer who was forcing them to sacrifice, and tore down the altar” (1 Mac. 2:15-25).

Mattathias, his sons and their followers then headed for the Judean hills, to launch a guerrilla war. They were farmers who had no military training,fighting a professional army. There had not been a Jewish army since Babylon had destroyed the Judean kingdom four centuries before. Their only weapons were farming tools and whatever simple weapons they could construct, such as maces or slings. During this first year, Mattathias died, and his middle son Judah took over command as his successor.

Nicknamed “the hammer” (“Maccabee,” in Hebrew), Judah constructed a guerrilla army that staged daring nighttime raids on the Greek outposts, then melted back into the countryside. His successes attracted more supporters, and the revolt spread.

The war went on for 25 years, one of the most singular wars for independence in history. The miracle, perhaps is that it was fought at all, let alone won.

The Seleucids and Antiochus sent huge, well equipped armies into Israel to subdue the Jews. They were all defeated, at odds that seem miraculous even today. Judah Maccabee turned out to be a tactical genius. He used unheard tactics, leading the Greek phalanxes into the hills where they could not maneuver and destroying them.

To give you an idea of how essential the Jewish heartland of Judea and Samaria was and is to Israel’s survival then and now, the map below shows where the major battles of the war took place.(hat tip, Carl) Click on it to enlarge it:

One thing that is seldom mentioned about the war is the fact that a significant part of it took place against the Hellenized, assimilated’ Jewish traitors I mentioned earlier,. They were more than willing abandon the Jewish way of life and supported their Seleucid masters against their fellow Jews.

As Ecclesiastes famously said in the Megillot, there’s nothing new under the sun.

In 164 BCE, the Jews defeated a force commanded by the Viceroy Lysias that outnumbered them two to one. That battle took place six miles north of Hebron, near the Jewish fortress of Beth-zur. The victory allowed Judah and his army to retake Jerusalem.

When they entered Jerusalem, Judah and his followers entered the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount. The Temple had been wrecked and horribly desecrated, with profanities scrawled on the walls and the Ark by the Seleucids.

The Maccabees built a new altar. When the time came to light the N’er Tamid, the Eternal Light of the Temple, the Jews could find only one sanctified jar of oil marked with the seal of the High Priest. It was only enough to last one evening. On the 25th of Kislev, in the year 164 BCE,the lamp was lit with this small jar of oil and, miraculously, stayed lit for eight days, until more oil suitable for the temple was made. The eight days of Hanukkah celebrate that miracle, as well as the divine intervention that had led the Jews to amazing victories over well-equipped professional armies far superior in numbers. “Therefore, carrying ivy-wreathed wants and beautiful branches and also fronds of palm, they offered hymns of thanksgiving to Him who had given success to the purifying of His own holy place” (2 Mac. 10:7).

The war itself continued. In 160 BCE, near modern-day Ramallah, Judah was killed, but Judah’s brother Jonathan, and then his brother Simon took command of the Jewish army, finally winning complete independence in 142 BCE. At last, “All the people sat under their own vines and fig trees, and there was none to make them afraid” (1 Mac. 14:12).

That verse, by the way, was the one quoted by George Washington in his famous letter to the Jewish congregation in Newport, Rhode Island’s Truro synagogue, assuring them the the new American government welcomed them as citizens and countrymen. Considering the history of Jewish persecution and expulsion in Europe, that letter of welcome meant a great deal to the Jews of 1790.

President Washington obviously was familiar with the Book of Maccabee, and knew exactly what that war was fought over.

You see, the War of the Maccabees was the first war ever fought for religious freedom. Somehow, a group of farmers with no military training who refused to bow to their oppressors defeated a mighty empire and its immense standing armies. There seems to be no plausible explanation for the victory of the Jews except that it was a miracle…as was the American Revolution itself.

Towards the end of the war, Antiochus and the Seleucids became so obsessed with defeating the Israelites that they sacked their own cities and sold their own citizens into slavery to get money to pursue the war against the Jews. The war bankrupted and destroyed their empire.

Hanukkah reminds us that with G-d’s help, victory over evil is assured, that light conquers darkness and no miracle is impossible. Modern Israel and the survival of the Jewish people against all odds are proof of that.

Symbols in Hanukkah

Aside from the Hanukkiah (candlesticks), the other great symbol of Hanukkah are those small spinning tops known as dreidels.

The four letters which appear on the four corners of a dreidel allude to the miracle of Hanukkah. They spell out: Nes (N-miracle), Gadol (G-great), Haya (H-happened) and Sham (S-there, meaning in Israel). Or, `a great miracle happened there.’

Indeed it did.

Chag Sameach! Happy Hanukkah!

What The UK Elections Really Means…And Why

The votes are in and the UK seems to finally have a new lease on life. Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party have a landslide victory in yesterday’s UK election. Bojo’s gamble has paid off wonderfully.Since Bojo took his canine friend into the voting booth with him, I hope whomever oversees these thing is on the lookout for paw prints on one of the ballots.

Image result for Boris Johnson and dog


While some votes are still to be counted from some remote locations, the Tories have picked up 80 seats in Parliament giving them a huge majority of 365 seats based on the latest exit polls. Only 328 were needed for a majority.

Jeremy Corbyn and Labour ended up with 203 seats, a major loss from the 262 they had before.

What this means is that Brexit is finally going to become reality, 3 years after the British people voted for it. Bojo understands quite well that if he fails to deliver, the Tories will be voted back out again. For the Conservatives, this is the best performance since party icon Margaret Thatcher’s last victory in 1987.

Part of the reason is that a large number of the British working class turned against the radical left as personified by Jeremy  Corbyn and the Labour Party. Many of them voted to leave the EU. They were sick and tired of the never ending delays and stalls designed to make their votes null and void by the political elites among both the Tories and Labour.

Another reason is that Scotland, long a big source of Labour votes has now been almost entirely captured by the far Left socialist Scottish National Party (SNP). The SNP’s chief cause is and has always been socialism and an independent Scotland. The SNP is also very anti-Brexit and wants to remain in the EU. As their leader Nicola Sturgeon said after the UK election, the results are not going to be binding on Scotland. Expect that to be one of the problems PM Johnson will have to deal with.

She and her fellow SNP members are of course ignoring two potent facts; first that the EU has a number of countries ahead of an independent Scotland for consideration for membership and second, that the EU accepting Scotland is not a done deal. Scotland now gets far more from the UK in financial aid than it pays in taxes and a divorce always involves certain expenses. The EU accepting an independent Scotland is by no means a sure thing since they’re already dealing with a number of members who receive lots of financial aid as it is, and the North Sea oil is just about tapped out. So we’ll see how that shakes out, aye Jimmy?

Another thing Bojo will have to deal with is trade treaties. The EU, led by French President Macron and Germany’s Angela Merkel are already saying that a non-EU Britain will be an “economic competitor at our door.”  Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron (who you’d think would have other problems to worry about just now) said that  London would become an “unfair competitor”. Bojo’s idea is to complete both Brexit and the new trade treaties with the EU by the end of January.

Unlike Teresa May, his predecessor, he’s not going to agree to paying ‘alimony’ of millions of pounds to the EU or to allow himself to be bullied into accepting the UK’s compliance with laws it has no voice in making. The UK elections have changed all that. In the event the EU insists on those terms, he might very well decide on a no-deal  Brexit and worry about the treaties later.

Where before the EU presented a take it or leave it deal to the UK, things have changed and they now are far more interested in what the 27 EU leaders called for “as close as possible a future relationship with the UK.” Nor will their be any more nonsense about an Ireland ‘back up.’

Many of the EU members need trade with the UK more than the UK needs trade with them.

Outside the UN new opportunities are also going to arise. Where before, trade with Asia and the US was subject to EU terms and conditions, now the UK can make it’s own deals. Given how well President Trump and Boris Johnson already get along and the UK’s relationship with Australia, Canada and other members of the Commonwealth, that’s going to open up a lot of new opportunities.

And an important aside, the UK will no longer be subject to the EU’s positions and rules on accepting and keeping ‘migrants’ and so-called ‘asylum seekers.’ Teresa May was willing to accept this. Boris Johnson won’t, and he made a point of that during the campaign. It’s another reason he got elected.

What Boris Johnson and the Conservatives now represent is the promise of a new day for Britain. Like President Trump, he will be maligned and opposed by the Left. But then, so was Margaret Thatcher. If Bojo is as strong and determined as she was, the UK will be very fortunate. And for America,it could mean a new start on that special relationship.

First off, Biden knows Obama. I mean, like, he fricking KNOWS Obama personally.

Second, the entire Corn Pop Incident proves beyond doubt that Obama is the right Guy. Not only does it establish for all time that he is Not racist (like Trump), but that he has the street smarts to deal with Putin, the Chinese, the Iranians, and all other dictators (unlike Trump.)

Further, the way Biden recently handled a “farmer,” by correctly calling him “fat,” and immediately challenging him to a pushup contest, further proves that he is wise and fair as Solomon in all matters, but tough as they come.

Had Biden actually done the pushups he would have slaughtered the fat farmer.

Okay, so Maybe Biden has a couple hair plugs, but they look great, and only Obama sees the back of his head.

“Joe?” – “Yes, Barry?” – “What’s that hard thing rubbing against my groin?” – “It’s just me, Barry.”

Okay, and maybe he has false teeth…and a little plastic surgery, but…Everybody does that at his age.

I mean…at his stage in life.

Oh…I mean….


When Biden trolls Trump (Evil Incarnate), by pretending to not know where he is while on the campaign trail–that is, oh, too funny, I know right! :)

He really gets Trump and all Trump’s fellow White Supremest Buddies going.

I mean…

Hahahahahah! Right?

Oh, and the women!

Women can NOT keep their hands OFF of Biden. No Way!


Wotta Guy, appealing to all types of womens. People…um…female persons. Persons identifying as females?

“Hey, Chip.” – “Yeah, Bob?” – “We get this old basterd outside, later, we beat the shit out of him, okay?” – “You got it, Bob.”

Finally, one of my top reasons for voting “Biden, 2020”–other than to save the World from Adolph Trump–is:

Biden wears Ray-Bans©.


Need I say more?

The post WHY BIDEN IS BEST FOR AMERICA AND WHY I’M VOTING FOR HIM. appeared first on Watcher of Weasels.

Does this matter to Jews who vote Liberal Democrat in ONE Bloc? Or are they dying for the day when they can all die again?




The past 24 hours provided a clear and painful picture of the momentous challenges American Jews face these days.

The day began with news that President Trump had issued an executive order designed, the White House said, to fight anti-Semitism. Reporting on the order, The New York Times stressed that it will “effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion,” and that it “could be used to stifle free speech and legitimate opposition to Israel’s policies toward Palestinians in the name of fighting anti-Semitism.”


Leftist NGOs echoed the same talking point, and a phalanx of pundits took to Twitter to decry the order as anti-Semitic because, allegedly, it somehow paved the road to defining Jews as something less than fully American. From the Hollywood actress who thundered,“You, stupid crook president do not get to decide this so your white nationalist pals get to stick me in a concentration camp,” to the law professor who blastedthe order for deeming Jews to be “some nationality other than Americans,” our bien-pensants were whipping everyone into a wild frenzy, portraying the president as an unhinged anti-Semite and a clear and present danger to the Jews.


And then something else happened.

As Twitter was aflame with vitriol directed at the president, gunmen shot up a kosher market in Jersey City, New Jersey, killing three—including two Jews. Those of us rushing to report on the attack were initially reassured by a host of sources, official and unofficial alike, that there was no larger story here: The shooting, we were told, was random—not a hate crime specifically targeting Jews. The early reports in the press echoed these sentiments, with most not even mentioning the fact that the crime scene was a kosher establishment.

It didn’t take long for the truth to come out. The shooting, we now know, was a premeditated attack, and one of the suspects was a black nationalist who had a long and proven track record of posting anti-Semitic screeds online.

And then we learned something else. We learned that, unbelievably, it turned out that at the exact moment that Jews were being murdered for being Jewish, a bunch of blue checkmark assholes were inaccurately and outrageously railing against the president for doing nothing else but …  protecting Jews.

When Trump’s executive order was finally made public, it turned out that far from somehow defining Jews as this, that, or the other, as our self-appointed moral and intellectual superiors falsely and hysterically claimed, it did little but extend the same protections afforded to minorities under our existing civil rights laws to Jews as well. “Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI), 42 U.S.C. 2000d et  seq., prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance,” it reads. “While Title VI does not cover discrimination based on religion, individuals who face discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin do not lose protection under Title VI for also being a member of a group that shares common religious practices. Discrimination against Jews may give rise to a Title VI violation when the discrimination is based on an individual’s race, color, or national origin.”

This is in no way, as the Times implied and many on the left have tweeted, an attack on free speech on campus or anyplace else. It is, in fact, nothing more than an extension of the Obama White House’s own legal guidance about the treatment of Jews and Sikhs under existing U.S. civil rights law. You may challenge the wisdom of designating groups of people as a protected class—as some on the right do, arguing that protections ought to be granted to individuals, not collectives—but as long as our laws exist the way they do, and as long as Jews remain America’s most targeted minority, affording them the same legal protection enjoyed by other minorities isn’t just right, it’s a moral and physical imperative.

But none of this matters to the social media addicts in charge of public discourse. To our intelligentsia, no explanation is feasible unless it underscores the evil intentions of Trump, their sworn enemy.

Even in a political climate rich with petulant outbursts and virtue-signaling, the reaction to Trump’s executive order sets a dangerous precedent. Portraying measures clearly designed to combat anti-Semitism and protect Jews from harm as being in of themselves somehow anti-Semitic is not only an affront to logic and morality, but also a reckless move when violence against Jews is on the rise.

If you want to see this muddled logic carried to its extreme and ugly end, just look at what New York’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, said in a press conference after the Jersey City shooting. The attack, he said, “tragically confirms that a growing pattern of violent anti-Semitism has now turned into a crisis for our nation. And now this threat has reached the doorstep of New York City.”

The doorstep? The threat has been far inside the mayor’s own house for years. But acknowledging that would mean fessing up to his own calculated inaction—and finally explaining exactly why he’s allowed targets to be put on Jewish backs.

The mayor’s laughable campaign for president is one likely reason for his inaction in the face of all this violence, and for his belief that threat has only now reached his city’s limits. Another may be the fact that the majority of the hundreds of hate crimes against Jews in New York were perpetrated by African Americans and Hispanics, not by enraged white nationalists, who are frequent targets of the mayor’s rhetoric but have been found responsible for exactly zero hate crimes in the city of New York.

Jews make up about 2% of the American population, yet were the victims of a whopping 57.8% of all religious bias crimes last year, according to the FBI. Rather than vocally and unequivocally demanding that their Jewish constituents be protected, the politicians representing those targeted—from de Blasio to New York Sen. Chuck Schumer—have been largely silent on this issue, while at the same time loudly and vigorously accusing the right of racism. Videos like this one, shot at the scene shortly after the Jersey City attack and featuring local neighbors blaming the Jews for Jews being murdered, are not likely to make any politician on the left take action, especially not someone like de Blasio, who has for years been kissing the ring of Al Sharpton, an anti-Semite best remembered for inciting an actual pogrom against the Jews of Brooklyn.


What American Jews need right now is clear and concrete action that protects them from anyone who wishes them harm. Whether you like it or not, the fact is that yesterday New York’s senator and mayor took no such steps. The president did.

Anti-Semitism – This is War, Start Treating it Like One

Jews everywhere are rightly concerned about the growing anti-Semitism. We cannot merely sigh and resign ourselves to the abuse like we used to do in the Shtetl, ghetto, or dhimmi communities of old. We are under attack, in a few catastrophic cases lethally, and this must be fought aggressively.

Since this is war, we would do well to follow the advice of Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military strategist whose work, The Art of War, is one of the must-read books for any military person… indeed, any person in any combative endeavor. His advice is timeless:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Do we know the enemy? In this political environment, are we even willing to identify the enemy?

Jew-haters: Five Distinct Categories

It is not sufficient to say they are Jew-haters. Duh, we know that. We must look deeper into their motivation to defeat them. In doing so, I find five distinct types: Hitlerian, Christian, Islamic, Alt-Right, and Leftist.

The Hitlerian version is obvious: blame Jews for all societal ills and use them as a convenient scapegoat; also portray them as racially inferior, the better to suppress the inherent inhibitions most have against killing other people. Since there is virtually no Jewish family that did not have branches shorn from it in the Shoah, and because of this calamity in our past – still within living memory of some – we focus on it almost exclusively to our detriment. We dare not ignore the others, though, nor the fact they have different motivators.

The Christian form: Jews killed Jesus, Jews are in the “Synagogue of Satan,” Jews only care about money, and so on. Interestingly, in Evangelicals and others, e.g., Christians United for Israel and International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, we have some of our strongest supporters.

The third is Islamic. Hatred of Jews is hard-coded into the Koran itself and stems from the Jews’ rejection of Mohammed as a prophet. Initially favorably disposed towards Jews and Christians as “people of the book,” Mohammed changed when the Jews whose support he sought spurned him. Following the Principle of Abrogation, any kind words towards Jews early in his rise to power are overridden by his ire towards them later in life.

This antipathy is echoed in the calamitous effect Muslim migrants are having in Europe: open attacks on Jews, including synogogues being burned to screams of “Allahu akhbar!”; they march in European streets shouting “Khaybar! The armies of Mohammed are coming!” A recent attack involved asking pedestrians if they are Jewish before stabbing them. Thus, Jews are fleeing Europe. Jihad by migration is a doctrinal command called Hijra. Violent Islamists are outright conquering swaths of multiple Western countries; for example, Malmo, Sweden once had a thriving Jewish community and is now virtually Judenrein because of the Islamic influx. In this they reprise early Islamic history: Mohammed fled Mecca as a refugee; within10 years the Jews in Medina who took him in were dead, enslaved, or converted.

Yet, despite the calamitous effects of this migration and the rapid escalation of crimes against all native Europeans, let alone Jews – spanning robberies, assaults, rapes, and murder – many Jews encourage this migration. Most infamous is the proclamation by Barbara Spectre, whose statement is foundational in the growing Jew-hatred of the fourth kind: the so-called Alt-Right form:

“Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies [sic] that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”

Jewish Values?

While many organizations – religious and not – are aiding migration to Europe and America, groups like If Not Now, Never Again Action, HIAS, and others do so while proclaiming that such aid represents “Jewish values.” And while we are commanded to welcome the stranger, the assumption is that these strangers will not harm our community. Would one knowingly welcome strangers whose philosophy not only permits, but encourages them to rape one’s wives, sisters, mothers, or daughters? The Koran commands that infidel women may be taken as sex slaves (4:24), and judging by the crime statistics migrants they do so with enthusiasm. For example, rapes in Sweden have tripled within the last four years with Islamic migrants being the vast majority of the aggressors; all over Western Europe reports are that women are now afraid to go out alone. And can we please mention the UK’s “grooming gangs” too?

If we are to consider Jewish values, we should cite Rabbi Akiva’s interpretation of “And your brother shall live with you,” where he indicates that your life takes precedence over the life of the other. Hillel’s question “If I am not for others, who am I?” is preceded by “If I am not for myself, who will be?” The first takes precedence over the second.

Ultimately, if “When someone says they want to kill you, believe them (Elie Wiesel),” and “When someone comes to kill you, arise and kill them first (Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 72a)” are two examples where we wisely take threats seriously and act proactively, then how then can we describe the Jewish advocacy of mass Islamic immigration – when that same Islam clearly states “DEATH TO JEWS!” – as anything but Jewicidal folly?

In short: the Alt-Right looks at the crime (including record-shattering levels of rapes and murders) and outright territorial conquests these migrants are achieving (no-go zones all across Europe, and places like Dearborn, MI), and hears statements made by Spectre among others.  They see groups declare it is Jewish values to force the West to admit migrants heedless of the damage they do and the crimes they commit while ignoring the fact that sovereign nations have a right to control their borders. Putting these facts together, they conclude that Jews are working to undermine America and Europe. Are these Jewish values? No… but that perception has become their reality, and such Jewish groups’ actions are held against us.

And lastly, the fifth type is Leftist anti-Semitism. From “It’s all about the Benjamins” said by the Left’s darling Ilhan Omar (who still holds her three committee memberships), to Elizabeth Warren’s fundraising for a known anti-Semite, to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer attending a J Street conference with speakers from the PLO, to Bernie Sanders hiring a Hamas-supporting campaign manager and BDS- & Sharia-promoting Linda Sarsour as a campaign surrogate, anti-Semitism has blossomed on the Left. Let us not forget former President Barack Obama’s forbidding US flights to land in Israel as an economic threat, his degrading treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and letting UN Resolution 2334 pass without a veto… the hate flows from the Democrats who, almost unanimously, favor using aid as a cudgel to force Israel to cede land critical to Israel’s security. Gaza was handed over in toto in 2005, yet missiles flew; so what would happen to Israel were every inch of Jewish-held land to be within missile range?

The Power of ‘Intersectionality’

Through the power of “intersectionality” every Leftist cause has been linked to every other cause. Thus the Palestinians have gained sympathy in no small part through their effective use of Pallywood – and the Left’s useful idiot acceptance of it. Jews rank low on the Left’s hierarchy of victimhood, having been promoted from oppressed to oppressor. Consider the Jewish lesbian women ejected from a gay rights parade because their rainbow flag had a Star of David… the organizers didn’t want the Palestinian supporters in that parade there to be upset. And don’t forget the tremendous upswing of attacks on Jews in New York, done overwhelmingly – insofar as data supports – by a more favored victim group that votes Democrat even more lopsidedly than Jews do.

Despite the fact that many Jews have money to fund campaigns, ultimately it is votes that matter. And the Democrats have made a cynical calculation that even if they lose Jews, the Jews they lose are in districts they would win anyway. Better to pander to their new, and increasing, Muslim voter base whose holy book says that Jews are apes and pigs and whose American Imams preach about the coming end-of-days slaughter of Jews.

The worst part comes where these parties interact. Alt-right, neo-Nazis, and the Left support Palestinians because it hurts Israel, even as the Alt-Right decries Muslim immigration and neo-Nazis doubtless plan to turn on the brown-skinned Arabs after Jews are gone. Vandalized graves and synagogues, festooned with swastikas, could easily be done by Muslims knowing the Jews will race to blame “white nationalists” and, in parallel, reach out to and want to increase the Muslim population as a “fellow put-upon population,” thus aiding their hijra.

The progressive Left’s takeover of many Christian denominations powers their adoptions of BDS resolutions, in parallel reinforcing the Christian form.  And yet another interaction is that the Nazi, Alt-Right, and some Christian types see the open tolerance by the Left of Islamic anti-Semitism, let alone the Left’s own anti-Semitism, and conclude that it’s OK to let their own be seen once more. Tolerance of one type of anti-Semitism in the name of “multiculturalism” results in all mushrooming up. It never pays to underestimate your enemies or their willingness to join hands when faced with a common foe: Jews.

In sum, we face a war where all our opponents share a common end: dead Jews and a destroyed Israel. The reasons for their desires, however, differ vastly – and while we face attacks from multiple agendas, a serious discussion of those motivations can lead more effectively to tactics to target those who hate us. Additionally, grasping how these hatreds interact and support each other against their common enemy – Jews! – is also a necessary insight.

If we Jews merely shake our heads in disapproval, cluck “Hate is bad…” but don’t treat this seriously – which must include diving into the slime to know our enemies and their interlinked but nonetheless distinct motivations – we will lose.  A multi-axis threat cannot be successfully repulsed by a single-axis response.

Brooke Whipple can run a chain saw, work a video camera, dig a Dakota fire-pit, skin a deer, build a fire in rain or snow, cook a moose, drive a truck, construct a shelter from nothing, toss wooden pallets around like crackers, looks great–and a lot more.

Brooke Whipple seems to be the consummate woman–like an early America pioneer.

I’m talking, all, like, Jim Bowie, Kit Carson, Josefa Jaramillo, Ann Preston, David Crockett, Daniel Boone, Jim Bridger, and every early American–male or female–who fended for him or herself in the wild frontiers of America.

In addition to All this, Brooke Whipple is Real.

At all times Brooke is a real person. Like a modern Socrates, or Hypatia, she delivers seemingly offhanded, yet, wise, and sincere remarks that hit home runs.

She will sit and talk directly to you. Not only about, say, camping, or building a campfire–but about life, living, and what we should do with our short time on Earth.

Brooke is not some dumb, inexperienced kid, like a Greta, or Hogg. She is a mature woman approaching middle age, but who seems much younger in expressed thoughts, actions, behavior, and innate good looks.

Brooke knows what she is talking about. I know–because I’m 75. I have seen it all three times, done it all six times, and got the tattoo.

When Brooke speaks about Life and Stuff — usually from beside a self-made campfire — she inspires.

Brooke Whipple is inspirational.

STOP THE PRESSES! “Eric Swalwell Denies Emitting Massive Fart on MSNBC!”


Stalwell Farts!

THIS IS WHAT SO-CALLED, “JOURNALISM” IN AMERICA HAS COME TO, in 2019. The minutest Tweets, Twitters, Facebookings, Writing, analyses, and a lot more.

A Presidential candidate “ALLEGEDLY” farted.


“Democrats’ efforts to impeach President Donald Trump are going over with the public like a juicy, wet fart.

“Seriously. Such wind was broken live on MSNBC on Monday night on the eve of the Democrats’ next round of impeachment hearings on Tuesday, where a Democrat Congressman helping lead the charge for impeachment was being interviewed by a network host. Then, mid-interview, a loud fart broke out on air.”


(What allegedly happens if you don’t allegedly say, “allegedly” anymore? Does Social Media get on your case, call you “racist,” get you fired, and destroy your life?)

This headline (above) seems to be all that remains of a once-great Democrat Party. The party of JFK, of Hubert Humphrey, Daniel Moynihan, Harry S. Truman, and others. All that remains now are clowns, liars, psychopaths, Communists, Propagandists, and Totalitarians.

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter –

So…there’s nothing really left to write about. How many times can a conscientious analyst write about Democrat lies, bullsh’t, and Hollywood-scripted make-believe socialist Reality?

Why Write about it? Why politely chronicle it? Why treat evil or deranged Democrats as if they were sacrosanct? Why these Marquis of Queensbury Rules of “ethical” boxing?


Democrats and Leftists have nothing–other than their own sh’t, to throw at us: at Democracy, Freedom, Truth, Justice, Trump, and the American Way.

Democrats have sunk to the bottom of their pig pond–and just throw whatever sh’t they grab hold of–every day, and every night, to see if it maybe sticks to anything. As in Trump.

This is utter, shameless Democrat desperation, born of Terrified Democrat Desperation.

Because the Democrats–among them, Pelosi, Schiff, Clapper, Comey, Clinton, Brenner, and all others sucking off the tit of the Deep State– feel spiked walls closing in upon them. Because Punishment is said to be coming. And they know it.

Desperately–Democrats know they must discredit or remove Donald Trump before his Magical, Sh’t Disruption Ray Can melt them!

Wicked Witch – The Wizard Of oz –

But, Democrats have gotten so good at throwing sh’t, that deranged, communist followers and dreamy watchers of TV, actually BELIEVE them.

And deluded haters and idealists can not WAIT to vote for the Democrat of their “choice”–ANY Democrat Leftist who might be “nominated.”

Anybody at all.

Many “Voters” pray it will be the current President of Mexico, or the President of China, Iran, Cuba, or the beautiful Michelle Obama, or the scintillating Hillary Clinton, or the massive genius of Señor Butt Gig–you know, the gay guy–or even a housebroken mastiff, if offered.


Democrats will vote Democrat. It doesn’t matter for Whom.

Every “registered” voter, every dead person still on the rolls, every illegal alien, or pissed off meth-user. Every person with a gripe, “identity,” special protection, a leftist agenda, or totalitarian goal. They will all vote.

Additional “votes” will be “harvested,” by Democrats–as needed–wherever they are found. In school desks, in closets, under beds, in car trunks, warehouses, filing cabinets, or just laying around “uncounted.”

Or Democrats might just disrupt the elections entirely, and declare them null and void–“RESIST El Trump.”

Democrats will continue to lie, cheat, steal, subvert, and stage, their public coup d’etat.

While Republicans in Congress and the Senate sit with their thumbs up their ass and do–what? Nothing? Follow polite rules of boxing–Marquis of Queensbury rules.

“You think that’s air you’re breathing?” (The Matrix,. 1999.)

Nothing you do will matter. It’s a falsified “Reality,” Neo.

Democrats will not accept a loss–they can’t. To lose is to be obliterated. This is the “game” they have set up for themselves and Trump. In the end, there can be only one.

Morpheus The Matrix quotes:

“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. “Neo: What truth? “Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.” ― Morpheus The Matrix (1999)

How Dumb Must Millennials Be–Buying Into Socialism and Communism?



…It is a sobering reminder of how successful the propaganda of the leftist media and higher education system has been when one realizes that socialism is viewed by nearly half of the millions of young Americans as a sociable way of life — a better way of life where they feel people work together for the good of everyone, where the wealth generated by the sweat of the worker is not accumulated into the bank accounts of a small group of the mega-wealthy.

The Democrat candidates for president continually talk about getting the wealthy to pay their fair share to make public college free and to offer free health care for everyone.

Socialism, they say, is the sensitive political system, whereas capitalism is ruthless and runs on greed and profits, where the poor worker sleeps on the streets outside the mansions of the factory-owners.

Currently leading the Democrat socialist field are Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who are both trying to see who can be more “caring” to young Americans by “out-socializing” the other.  Offerings of the lowest-cost or no-cost health care for all, free education for all, and forgiveness of student debt are just some of the key areas that both candidates are struggling to rule….


For many, “Socialism” seems just a nicer way of saying “Communism.”

Millennials seem to believe Communism sounds “pretty good.” They have been taught this almost from birth. How “wonderful” Communism is, compared to Evil Capitalism and Especially to “Evil” America.

They have been taught this in daycare, in schools, in universities, in the “news,” movies, and on TV.

It’s a twenty-four hour, world-wide drum they have banging inside cellphone-blurred heads. They are organized around it–the cellphone–liberal TV, leftist Internet sites, and “social media.”

Russian CAPTAIN PLANET Good – American Trump Climate Accords Bad –

There is no world, other than the one illustrated, scripted, and foretold to Millennials on their “magic” oracles–the phones.


Totalitarian Communism–is what Democrats And their enablers/supporters seem to want. Evidenced by the Full-Stalinist, Schiff-Trials. Adam Schiff, it seems, in whatever universe he populates, seeks total command and control.

The “problem” is– not  that “The Schiff Has Hit The Fan.”

The problem is that too many are “set-up” to actually  BELIEVE  Schiff, and that he is viewed and reported as Absolute Truth.

Communists, Globalists, Politicians, and World Money Masters seek total dominance of Earth. Some may seem to be Capitalists, but actually foment and promote Socialism/Communism.

Elites want to rule Earth, with a population of walking dead enslaved to them–the same way ancient serfs were to feudal lords.

 Overlord Master and Serfdom Slaves –

Socialism is not for the masses. Socialism is for the Elite, who seek wealth, power, luxury, and Dominance.

No. Millennials aren’t born “dumb.” They are made that way. Almost from birth.

They are made dumb. Stupid. Unable to learn. Blocked. Enslaved to the Phones. To a make-believe, made-up “Reality.”

Millennials are inculcated by foreign nannies, in daycare, in schools, and universities.  They are made to “trust” their emotions and feelings. They are made into life-long Liberals.

They are made into suburban housewives, metrosexuals, and trans-Whatever. They are made inured to the violence of History.

“Trump and America –Evil. Facebook And social media –Good.”

 Arnold And Terminator Good – Guns Bad – Death Of Capitalism Good (but, GUNS GOOD For That!)  –

Millennials have been recreated by World Masters.

Millennials are made by “social engineers.” They are scripted and cast in walking dead roles, with no lines–other than the Democrat Communist Party-Line.

Das Partei (That’s German, kids.)


DNA is never wiped out. But it can be modified. When liberals have children with other liberals, you just might get more liberals.

Groups, and herds of them.

Flocks and gangs of them.

Liberals, to populate a niche. Liberals, as a permanent part of the gene pool.

Liberals to take Earth.

“Journalistic Standards” Have ALWAYS Been About Lies, and–In Some Cases–Advancing Causes.

So-Called, “Journalistic Standards,” seem to have almost always been concerned with journalism as an “engine” of agendas. How could it not?

The Real Face Of USA General George Washington. Reconstructed.

From the moment that the colonials received word of Britain’s new taxes in 1764 until reports of the peace treaty arrived in 1783, the press constituted the major source of information about events and developments in the conflict with the mother country. Both Benjamin Franklin, one of the Revolution’s greatest leaders, and Ambrose Serle, a Loyalist, described the press as an “engine” that should be used to advance the cause….


America’s “problem” is not about AOC, or Adam Schiff, or Nancy Pelosi, Bernie, Beto, Bloomberg, or Whomever, or Whatever.

It’s not about what they said, or how they said it, or what they may believe. It’s not about politely outlining or “explaining” the “news.” It’s not about what we are told, hear, or are shown.

It’s not about “the details.” They don’t matter.

America’s problem is:  perception of its problems.

“Freedom of The Press” is one of the guarantees of the US Constitution, ratified in 1788. What this actually says and how it’s used by Big Media (MSM, or Main Stream Media) seems to be two different things.

1.) What it actually says, is:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

2.) How it seems to be used, however, is: whatever the Media says, wants, or decrees, sometimes without limit, without law, and without reason.

The Past:


For instance: sometimes, In the past, old-time Robber Barons–who were massively powerful, open thieves, untaxed, rich beyond relative measure–were depicted as good

But when the opposite served Media purposes, they were depicted as bad.


Likewise, Media today has its agendas. And Has become–subsumed. It has BECOME the actual, former Power of oldtime Robber Barons. It has violence, Blood, censorship, sexy “1984” ploys, And can get you fired, banned, or destroy your life.

Media today is, in fact, a power, backing modern Barons–backing moves of the modern power elite. Or doing their actual bidding.


And, Big Media is a power itself.

Big Media now has the power to craft whatever reality it chooses to show you. It has the power to co-opt your brain.

Big Media seemingly can make you think whatever it wants you to think.

By 1900 major newspapers had become profitable powerhouses of advocacy, muckraking and sensationalism, along with serious, and objective news-gathering.

In the early 20th century, before television, the average American read several newspapers per day…Starting in the 1920s changes in technology again morphed the nature of American journalism as radio and later, television, began to play increasingly important roles.

In the late 20th century, much of American journalism merged into big media conglomerates (principally owned by media mogulsTed Turnerand Rupert Murdoch).

With the coming of digital journalism in the 21st Century, newspapers faced a business crisis as readers turned to the internet for news and advertisers followed them….


The problem is, that Big Media seems to be run by offsite Masters, globalists, advertisers, money-counters, and agendized, leftist activists. It’s not run by what the public may want, or by events, or by world history.


Deeply entrenched in what seems to be a world-wide trend to “socialism,” which is really a totalitarian communism, Big Media seems to be propelled in one, “progressive” direction, with everything moving in the same direction, at the same time.

It’s run by advertisers, by money people, greed, self-aggrandizement, power-seekers, politics, politicians, leftist philosophy, global wealth Masters–and by whatever the Media says it is.

World Big Media goes largely unchallenged. Seemingly valid law suits against it are mysteriously “dismissed.” Nothing touches Big Media. Supposedly impartial judges seem hand-picked and leftist mouths of a Globalist Elite.

All things money-driven, or all things policiy-driven, flock to Big Media. Like starving fledglings screaming for worms in their nests. All things money-driven scream for feedings by the only thing on Earth that can help them propagandize their product, their cause–or their reason to BE.

For instance, in some cases this entails the destruction of Donald Trump, and banning him from the Presidency. Or, likewise, the victory and enshrinement of Totalitarian Socialism–or, just call it, “Old Time Communism,” as victor.


Journalistic standards have had nothing to do with the truth for a long time

For decades ABC and other media outlets have hidden the truth about the serial abuse of women and young girls by the powerful Clintons, Weinstein and Epstein.

The cover-up was to protect the Clintons from scrutiny as they sought to elect and reelect Bill and to put the corrupt Hillary in the White House in 2016…..

…How many women and young girls have been abused by powerful men while the media looked the other way — as long as they supported the Clintons and wanted Democrats in power?


NEVER, in the history of Earth, has there been anything even remotely resembling the modern Electronic octopus.

Big Media–the Kraken—  has barbed tentacles everywhere.

It has alliances everywhere, and nearly unlimited abilities, and “friends in high places.”  It has Access– to Hollywood, “entertainers,” athletes, and celebrities–modern gods and godlings. Their new “classic” mythology.

Big Media has a 24-hour platform that cannot be ignored. It has money and power.

It has its own money. And, it has money and power behind it–backing its moves.

Big Media can be said to control the world.

By what it allows you to see.

By what it allows you to hear.

By what it allows you to say.

…or not….
