CHUCK HAGEL AND JEWS (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz

As Chuck Hagel moves closer to confirmation as our new Secretary of Defense, I thought you might be interested in learning that, as many anti-Jewish, anti-Israel incidents I have posted here, there are a good many more.

If you've got the stomach for it (or if you feel the same way about Jews that Hagel does, in which case your stomach won't be affected at all), then click here and read an additional compilation, put together by columnist Deroy Murdock.

Then remember:  we could have rid ourselves of the man who appointed Hagel last November.  And, according to exit polls, about 70% of the Jews in this country made sure he stayed in office for another four years.

Great going, guys.  Brillliant move.  Consider Hagel one of the fringe benefits.

In the immortal words of Pete Seeger who, I assure you, voted for Obama too), when will they ever learn, when will they e-ver learn?


THE JESSE JACKSON JR. PLEA DEAL

Ken Berwitz

In case you are not aware, here is the result of the plea deals cut by former U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr., and his wife, former Chicago Alderman Sandra Jackson:

-Him:  Prosecutors have recommended a sentence of 46 - 57 months in prison for felony fraud, which he has accepted.  Jackson Jr.'s exact words:  "Guilty, Your Honor.  I misled the American people,"

-Her:  Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 18 to 24 months in prison for filing false tax statements, presumably covering up her husband's felony misuse of campaign money (about $750,000 worth).  She, too, has pled guilty.

The reason I ask whether you are aware of the fact that this highest-of-high-profile US Representative and his Alderman wife pled guilty?  Because, it seems to me that these guilty pleas received less coverage and fewer mentions in the cable news shows than the fact that Marco Rubio took a swig of spring water during his response to President Obama's State of the Union address.

Obviously, two Democrats copping jail-time pleas for felonious behavior is less important than the fact that a Republican drinks water.

And, yes, these are the same "journalists" who squeal like stuck pigs if you call them biased.

BRITISH NATIONAL HEALTH CARE: THE "ART" OF THE STATE

Ken Berwitz

Here is the first paragraph of John Hinderaker's latest blog, concerning a subject we have discussed from time to time in here: the condition of Britain's socialized health care:

For a surprisingly long time, the British were proud of their system of socialized medicine, apparently because it was considered egalitarian. Now, however, a series of scandals in the National Health Service has focused attention on how low-quality government medicine is. The National Health Service has been rocked by one report after another of appallingly bad care, with many Britons demanding that NHS officials be criminally prosecuted. 

Want to read more?  I don't blame you.  Click here and you'll find the entire sordid, unsettling story.  Then think about these facts:

-Government rarely, if ever, runs anything competently or efficiently.  Even the simplest of things.

-Administering health care is immensely complex.

-This is what British health care has fallen to since it was taken over by the government.

-Our government is in the process of taking over our health care.

If this is enough to make you sick, I suggest you have your sickness fast - before ObamaCare completely kicks in.

Did we really vote to put this man back in office for another four years?  What's wrong with us?

AMAZING RACIAL INSENSITIVITY

Ken Berwitz

Rule #1 of racial insensitivity:  When you advertise, do not use obvious stereotypes which are negatively associated with a given race, religion or ethnicity. 

That said, please read this excerpt from an article by NBC New York reporter Pei-Sze Cheng, and be prepared to shake your head in amazement:

A Whole Foods supermarket in New York has removed a sign that used a drawing of President Barack Obama to advertise a sale on chicken after complaints that the ad was offensive.

The sign outside the supermarket on Manhattan's Upper West Side, featuring an apparent caricature of Obama advertising an upcoming sale on whole organic chickens, outraged neighbor Woody Henderson.

"There are certain things that have been used to put down black people watermelon, fried chicken," he said. 

Jason Nunez of the Bronx said, "Even if he's not the president, you're going to have an African-American promoting the sale of chicken? They can do better than that." 

During the Obama presidency, we have been told that a ton of different words and phrases have racial overtones.  Some of them have ranged from far-fetched, to borderline insane (mentioning that he was from Chicago would certainly fit the latter category).  I have been second to none in pointing them out as objects of the ridicule they deserve.

But some words and phrases are exactly as racial as described.  And, as the article's Mr. Henderson points out, if there are two foods which have relentlessly been used to negatively stereotype Black people, they are watermelon and chicken - usually fried chicken, but not in any way restricted to that one type of preparation.

How could Whole Foods have been so obtuse - especially a Whole Foods location in the uber-leftward Upper West Side of Manhattan, where it would be sure to cause a firestorm?

What will the store do for an encore?  Advertise its ATM machine with a picture of a big-nosed orthodox Jew, grinning and counting his money?

Yikes.


THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz

Today's quote comes from christine amanpour:  a "journalist" who has been presenting her biased BS for decades - with barely any problems about it from the same mainstream media which is so happy to go after Fox News every day.

Here is amanpour's happy birthday wish to......robert mugabe, the mass murdering thug who has turned Zimbabwe from one of the more prosperous African states into a hellhole beyond belief, with just about everything that worked taken over by his government and handed over to his incompetent suckups who have run it into the ground, leaving little other than destitution and starvation for Zimbabwe's people.. 

"Imagine a world leader four years older than the Pope who's been in power for 33 years and shows no sign of calling it quits.  Zimbabwes president, Robert Mugabe, is 89 today, and celebrated modestly by his standards - with a cake and a gift of 89 cows, we're told. But a lavish birthday party is planned for next month, complete with a soccer match and an all-night concert, at an estimated cost of $600,000, which is a hefty price tag for a country whose finance minister said just last month that it had only $217 left in the national bank. A $30 million infusion followed."

Yes, amanpour did mention, afterwards, that "Zimbabwe is still a blighted landscape for the economy and for human rights".  Nice of her.  But she did so only after her kissy-face birthday wishes, and that "good news" about the economy (where the $30 million came from, she did not say).

Under mugabe, Zimbabwe has become the North Korea of Africa.   But christine amanpour is wishes you a happy birthday, robert.  Enjoy your cake and cows.

I promise the next quote of the day, even if it is not a happy one, will be less sickening than today's.  How could it not be?


HUGOING, HUGOING....

Ken Berwitz

Here is the latest "official communique" about hugo chavez, which was read on Venezuelan TV by Ernesto Villegas, the "information minister:

"The breathing insufficiency that emerged post-operation persists and the tendency has not been favorable, so it is still being treated"

Breathing insufficiency?  What's the word they use when the breathing just stops?

hugo chavez was released from Cuba because the doctors in Cuba cannot do anything more for him (not that they seem to have done much in the first place).  

This does not have much longer to go.  chavez will be free of his breathing insufficiency and Venezuela will be free of chavez.

THE LOS ANGELES TEACHERS' UNION ENDORSEMENT

Ken Berwitz

What kind of candidate for the City Council would you think a teachers' union would endorse?  Let me give you two choices:

-You might think it would be someone dedicated to the teaching profession, who wants excellent teachers and educated students.

-Or you might think it would be a racist, anti-semitic USA hater who advocates - demands - the end of capitalism and the end of the USA?

Well, which of the two is it?

Well, here's your answer.  The Los Angeles Teachers' Union has endorsed ron gochez for the City Council.  And here he is, in his own words (a tiny sampling, I assure you), courtesy of Daniel Greenberg's article at frontpagemag.com:

In 2002, he published a Letter to the Editor, at SDSU's Daily Aztec, entitled "The Jewish-owned media continue to blind the masses with propaganda to keep them in fear."

At a UCLA rally, Gochez said, "Why is that these people... these frail, racist white people want to keep us out of this country? It's not simply because the color of our skin, it's not simply that they just want to exploit us, let me tell you why: because on this planet right now, six billion people... at the forefront of the movement is La Raza (the race)..."

Totally sounds nothing like Hitler. The Aztec removed Ron Gochez's original rant and then deleted the responses to it. But here they are again.

MEChA: AGENDA OF U.S. GOVERNMENT IS WHITE POWER

"Either you are with us or against us" is what Bush tells us. Our civil rights are under attack by this fascist and Nazi-like Bush administration. All people of color have been/are victims of racial profiling at the hands of the border, police, military, Republican and Democratic pigs. The post Sept. 11 disappearances of our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters are proof of that. As Chicanos/Mexicanos living in occupied Mexico/Aztlan, we are treated like foreigners on our own land. Our civil rights are violated 24/7. Don't believe me? Research Operation Gatekeeper and the 800 people who have been murdered under the rule of the "Republicrat" dictatorship. When we try to educate ourselves by passing out "Know Your Rights" fliers, we are beaten, arrested and made political prisoners like Ben Prado.

That not enough?  Then watch this chilling video of gochez from three years ago:

This, readers, is who the Los Angeles Teachers' Union endorses for the City Council.

And why not?  He is currently a high school teacher in its school system.  That's right; taxpayer dollars go to this hater so he can "educate" children.  What do you suppose he is teaching them?

Any wonder why California is sinking faster than the post-iceberg Titanic?

Now:  grow old waiting for any other teachers' union to condemn this one for endorsing gochez....and you will begin to understand why education in the USA is in its current sorry state.

And who is going to do something about it?  Barack Obama?  I hope you're not waiting for that to happen.  Eternity is a long, long time.

Roxy I think you hit a bluslyee there fellas! (07/01/13)
