The Passing of an Era – Remembering Willy Wenger 1926-2017

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-07-26 00:22

I AM EXTREMELY SAD TO REPORT THE DEATH OF MY DEAR FRIEND AND COLLABORATOR, WILLY WENGER. Willy died of heart failure on Thursday, JULY 20 (the 73rd anniversary of the attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler known as Operation Valkyrie) at home in Austria. He was 91. I was informed by his family - his daughter Sonia and his wife of over 60 years, Wilma.

I like the picture at left (taken when he was 87) because I think it shows the strength of this man and the pain and loss he endured in his life ... but with a buoyant heart.

Willy had his share of health problems during the last few years, but carried on valiantly to keep up with all his contacts and commitments. Though short in physical stature, he had a great, even towering, spirit within him. He loved his family, his country and his friends, and never turned down a request to serve them. It was my privilege to have known him.

Lakewood, New Jersey rabbis face prison in kidnapping conspiracy conviction

RABBI MENDEL EPSTEIN, ALONG WITH RABBIS JAY GOLDSTEIN AND BINYAMIN STIMLER, this week lost their appeal in which they argued they were engaged in their religious practice when they plotted to kidnap and torture their Jewish client's husband. From the Washington Post's July 19 story:

The holy man’s words were blunt, the subtlety and pretext all peeled off. “What we are going to be doing is kidnapping a guy for a couple of hours and beating him up and torturing him and then getting him to give you the get,” Rabbi Mendel Epstein told his two visitors.

“We take an electric cattle prod,” the bearded man continued later in the conversation on Aug. 14, 2013, according to court documents. “If it can get a bull that weighs five tons to move … You put it on certain parts of his body and in one minute the guy will know.”

Religion is key to Lakewood's 'special treatment' for Jews

WEST BANK? New two-story, cookie-cutter home construction continues unabated in Lakewood NJ to house the Orthodox Jews who are coming from all over the world, as seen here on Manetta Ave. The piney woods that used to be prevalent in the town have been wiped out. (David Gard | For NJ Advance Media)


By Carolyn Yeager

THE SAGA OF PETTY CRIMINALITY IN LAKEWOOD NJ I've presented so far provides an object lesson in “Special Treatment for Jews.” We see how a fundamentalist Jewish orthodox “community” moved into a quiet, somewhat idyllic East Coast town in large numbers and transformed it in their own image. We also see that the results of this are not good for the non-Jewish population, yet they are unable to stop it. To understand a situation like this, some analysis is in order and the situation in Lakewood is perfect for this purpose.

Fundamentalist Orthodox Jews are highly visible because of their distinctive clothing, making them stand out in a way reform or secular Jews do not. Lakewood NJ is a town where these Jews now make up half the population. The other half is a mix of African-American, Hispanic, and White. Therefore Jews make up the majority now.

One Jew, two Catholics introduce “Elie Wiesel” Genocide Prevention bill in Congress

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2017-06-23 13:35

By Carolyn Yeager

TWO CATHOLIC CONGRESS-CRITTERS HAVE INTRODUCED AN UNNECESSARY "ELIE WIESEL" SPENDING BILL just as the Trump administration is seeking to sharply trim the federal budget!

The two bleeding heart Catholics (Jewish water-carriers, both) – Reps. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., and Ann Wagner R-Mo – introduced “The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017” into the House of Representatives on June 22. It was previously introduced into the Senate by Ben Cardin, D-Maryland on May 17, 2017. Cardin is a Jew and a committed Liberal.

What is the purpose of this legislation?

Kudos to President Trump for firing FBI Director Comey - a strong and correct decision

Trump's letter to FBI Director James Comey today:

THE WHITE HOUSE
Washington

May 9, 2017

Dear Director Comey,

I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately.

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.

It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.

I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors,

Donald J. Trump

Ivanka represents the opposition inside Trump White House, despite being 'first daughter'

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-05-03 13:56

Ivanka Trump sits next to her father in the Oval Office, where she is a more common fixture than the public is shown. The charge of nepotism is being increasingly leveled against the president.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT'S WELL KNOWN IVANKA TRUMP IS A LIBERAL, previously a registered Democrat, now registered as an Independent. It doesn't appear she shares any of her father's political views—she is against what he is for and for what he is against. At exactly half his age, she has been on the receiving end of his advice, experience and largesse her entire life. But now that he has become leader of the entire country, this politically inexperienced daughter is doing her best to get him to listen to her about how he governs. She currently holds the title of assistant to the president, and has been given her own office in the West Wing on the floor above him.

Berkeley's Robert Reich agrees no conditions on free speech at campuses; students should be intellectually provoked

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2017-05-01 11:57

ON ABC SUNDAY, ANN COULTER AND FAR-LEFT BERKELEY PROFESSOR Robert Reich were on a segment together with moderator Jon Karl. Reich is the Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, where Coulter was denied the right to speak. Reich, a Jew, served in the Ford, Carter and Clinton administrations.

I ask, does Reich's approval for provocative topics apply to holocaust denial too?

The Liberal Media vs President Trump

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-04-19 12:12

From Newsbusters.org ...

As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party

This is just what I was telling John Friend in our podcast (see next post below) on Monday. It is a phenomenon that has not been seen before in my lifetime to this degree. The actual opposition party - the Democrats - would be 100% negative! You can continue reading this important article here.

Poland moves forward with refocusing history on Polish heroism and victimhood

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2017-04-14 13:44

The Museum of Second World War in Gdansk, Poland which opened on March 23, 2017 in the midst of controversy.


By Carolyn Yeager

POLAND IS MERGING TWO MUSEUMS OF HISTORY INTO ONE – the newly opened World War II Museum in Gdansk with another yet-to-be-established state-sanctioned institution that, when it opens, will be focused solely on Polish heroism during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

The current culture minister under the ruling Law and Justice Party, Piotr Glinski, has been pushing for a merger with a museum that currently exists only on paper, and is dedicated to the Battle of Westerplatte. In November 2016, the New York Times quoted Glinski saying that focusing on the September 1939 battle would better represent “heroic Polish self-defense,” and that the museum in the works failed to put “enough stress on the Polish point of view.”

Failed prosecution brings charge against judge in Nazi trial

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-04-11 15:40

95-year-old Hubert Zafke sits in a Newbrandenburg court with his lawyer Peter-Michael Diestel standing beside him.


By Carolyn Yeager

A JUDGE IN NEUBRANDENBURG IN GERMANY'S NORTHEAST IS ACCUSED of perverting the course of justice in one of the last Auschwitz trials brought by “holocaust survivors.” The charge has been brought by Jewish lawyer Thomas Walther, representing Walter Plywaski, 87, against Judge Klaus Kabisch. The lawyer for the accused former SS medic, 95 year-old Hubert Zafke, has defended the court's right to interpret the law as it sees fit, dismissing Walther's "media-friendly" criminal charges against Kabisch as a "provincial farce."

The prosecution's story goes that Walter and William Plywaski, aged 87 and 86, were brought to Auschwitz from Lodz, Poland, along with their parents on August 15, 1944. While they and their father survived, their mother was murdered in a gas chamber on the same day.
