          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


An dieser Stelle berichte ich über die Spiele meines favorisierten Football-Team, den OAKLAND RAIDERS  sowie alle restlichen Ergebnisse der NFL...



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

Eigentlich sollte eine freie Woche einem Team helfen, um verletzungsfreier und optimierter in die nächsten Spiele zu gehen; bei den Oakland Raiders kamen jedoch nur Hiobsbotschaften: Running Back Marshawn Lynch landete auf der Verletztenliste und Wide Receiver Amari Cooper wurde zu den Dallas Cowboys abgegeben. Man kann sagen, dass damit weitere Waffen des Angriffs genommen wurden. So brauchten die Raiders auch das gesamte erste Quarter, ehe sie auf Trab kamen. Bis dahin hatten allerdings die Gäste schon zehn Punkte geholt. Ohne große Gegenwehr marschierte Quarterback Andrew Luck mit seinem Angriff über das Feld und fand abschließend Tight End Mo Alie-Cox über 26 Yard zum Touchdown. Anschließend  legten sie noch ein Field Goal von Kicker Adam Vinatieri aus derselben Entfernung nach. Ein toller Pass von Quarterback Derek Carr über 31 Yard auf Wide Receiver Seth Roberts brachte im zweiten Quarter die ersten Punkte für Oakland. Nun schien der Spielmacher beflügelt und fand im nächsten Drive Tight End Jared Cook über 25 Yard zur 14:10 Führung. Knapp vor der Pause wurde es dann Liga-Historisch: Vinatieri traf ein Field Goal aus 25 Yard und war nun mit 2.547 der Rekordhalter für erzielte Punkte. Im dritten Quarter konnten die Raiders den Aufwind nutzten und marschierten über das Feld. Carr selber überbrückte mit einem Sprung den letzten Yard zu seinem ersten Touchdown und dem 21:13. Nun zeigten die Colts aber die Schwächen der Raiders auf - sie ließen immer wieder 'Big Plays' zu und so fand Luck schließlich Tight End Eric Ebron über 20 Yard und einem Zwei-Punkte-Erhöhung zum Ausgleich. Aber auch Carr kam schnell über das Spielfeld und fand den erst in de Woche engagierten Wide Receiver Brandon LaFell über sechs Yard zum 28:21. Das vierte Quarter sollte aber dann die Entscheidung bringen. Erstmal glichen die Colts aus, als Running Back Marlon Mack die letzten drei Yard überbrückte. Dann hielt die Abwehr die Gäste und Luck jagte seine Mannen erneut zum Touchdown, als er schließlich Tight End Jack Doyle über 10 Yard bediente. Oakland wollte nun den Ausgleich zurück holen, doch bei einem Versuch zu mehr Raumgewinn verlor Running Back Doug Martin den Ball, den Indianapolis in aussichtsreicher Position eroberte. Ruckzuck hatte Mack mit nur noch einem zu überbrückenden Yard die Führung aus 42:28 ausgebaut. Oakland kam zu keinen weiteren Punkten mehr und muss einsehen, dass die Saison mit nun 1-6 gelaufen zu sein scheint. Die Lichtpunkte sind nämlich viel zu wenig!


Tight End Jared Cook punktete für die Raiders...

          US Senator Cory Booker uses anti-Semitic massacre in Pittsburgh as excuse to dismiss Palestinians' rights      Cache   Translate Page      
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker says that the Pittsburgh massacre has led him to support the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. He becomes the first politician to use the killings of 11 Jews to take a racist position against Palestinian rights. His move should be described exactly that way, as a cynical use of real antisemitism as an excuse to dismiss Palestinian rights so as to further his political career. Booker, who is thought to have presidential ambitions, had opposed the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, but last week told Jewish Insider: "We've seen the alarming rise in anti-Semitism in the United States and across the world in recent years manifest itself in many deeply concerning ways, including in the actions of foreign governments targeting Israel and the Israeli people." "I have long and staunchly opposed the BDS movement, and support this bill which will prevent international entities from imposing their will on US businesses with regards to their decisions, consistent with US law, to...

          GOP Candidates Face Outcry For Depicting Jewish Opponents Clutching Fistfuls of Cash      Cache   Translate Page      
The GOP isn't even trying to be subtle about it anymore.

The dust has barely settled from the horrific Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh, committed by a neo-Nazi who believed Jewish groups are funding an influx of nonwhite migrants into the United States for nefarious purposes.

But Republicans apparently feel no responsibility to stand up to anti-Semitic sentiment. On the contrary, many GOP candidates are exploiting age-old stereotypes to attack Jewish opponents as avaricious and money-grubbing.

On Tuesday, with the polls opening nationwide, the Washington Post detailed multiple instances around the country of Republicans who have gone after Jewish Democrats by depicting them clutching fistfuls of cash.

One ad in Alaska depicted a Jewish state Senate candidate as a shadowy figure stuffing $100 bills into his suit, captioned "If you give Jesse Keihl your vote, you may as well give him your wallet." Republicans in Washington's 8th District illustrated the Democratic candidate, Dr. Kim Schrier, clutching a wad of $20 bills with the line "Dr. Tax will see you now!"

Another mailer in North Carolina showed Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer with a stack of bills, while a GOP state assembly candidate in California showed challenger Josh Lowenthal tinted green and clutching $100s, and the Connecticut Republican state Senate candidate put out an attack against opponent Matthew Lesser showing him grasping a wad of cash with a bug-eyed, demonic grin.

The anti-Semitic attacks are getting so grotesque that even some Republicans are sickened. "Jesse is proudly and prominently a member of Juneau's Jewish community," said Scott Kendall, a Jewish Republican who served as chief of staff to outgoing Gov. Bill Walker. "It is tough for me to process through that and not see an ill intent."

The stereotype of the Jewish people as money-grubbing and usurious dates back centuries, originating from Roman and medieval Church depictions of Judas' betrayal of Christ for thirty pieces of silver. It has been used to justify horrific persecution of Jews — a key fixture of Nazi propaganda was that the postwar German economy was suffering because Jews had bled the nation of all its money.

But Republicans have been increasingly willing to lean on this poisonous imagery for political ends. In 2016, the Trump campaign shared an image of Hillary Clinton depicting her on a pile of cash with a Star of David, an image first posted on an anti-Semitic message board (Clinton is a Methodist).

More recently, they have sought to tie the Honduran migrant caravan to George Soros, a Jewish Hungarian-born philanthropist billionaire and Holocaust survivor known for his contributions to liberal causes.

Sadly, but not unexpectedly, the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh is being used to justify new infringements on liberty. Of course, opponents of gun rights are claiming this shooting proves America needs more gun control. Even some who normally oppose gun control say the government needs to do more to keep guns out of the hands of the “mentally ill.” Those making this argument ignore the lack of evidence that background checks, new restrictions on the rights of those alleged to have a mental illness, or any other form of gun control would have prevented … Continue reading

          The Website the Synagogue Shooter Used to Spew Hate Is Back Online      Cache   Translate Page      
Most people had never heard of Gab before October 27th, 2018. But that day changed everything. That was when, 46-year-old Robert Bowers — a white supremacist — walked into the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with an AR-15 and three handguns, and killed 11 worshipers.

Bowers, along with other white nationalists like Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos and Richard Spencer, found a safe haven for their sick brand of hate on an obscure Twitter-like platform known as Gab. As explained by Wikipedia, the social media platform "allows its users to read and write multimedia messages of up to 300 characters, called 'gabs.'"

But if you thought Twitter was a cesspool, then Gab is a swampland. Gab.com claims to be the domain for Free Speech, where anything goes and anyone is welcome. They have little to no moderation and have often come under fire for allowing their members to share blatantly racist and violent content with no consequences.

It was on Gab that Robert Bowers left his final ominous lasting message:

"HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people," — referring to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. "I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in."

Hours later, he would take nearly a dozen lives. Since the tragedy, Gab deleted his account, but it wasn't fast enough to avoid the public wrath and scrutiny. Overnight, companies like GoDaddy.com, PayPal and Joyent stopped providing their services, and Gab was taken offline and forced into the gutters of obscurity where it belonged.

Unfortunately, it didn't stay there. Last Sunday, the unrepentant company announced that they were back online after Epik.com had agreed to replace GoDaddy as their domain provider.

"This is only the beginning. May God have mercy on you for what you people have done this past week."

Epik CEO Robert Monster said he believed Gab would be "vigilant" in moderating their users. But within minutes of Gab's reappearance online, dozens of hate-filled "gabs" inundated the site. One of the first posts was made by Christopher Cantwell (AKA "The Crying Nazi") who taunted the Jewish community with his gab: "Hey Jews! We're back on Gab now."

So much for hoping Gab has changed. If Epik wants to be taken seriously by the rest of the business community and the public at large, they should not hitch their wagon to a caravan of crazed hatemongers. Gab, is a platform based on hate, for people who want to wipe our nation clean of all diversity.

Tell Epik.com to follow the lead of other tech giants and cut ties with Gab. Sign the petition and let's make sure Gab goes dark for good.

          Was Anti-Semitic New York Graffiti Attacker A Liberal-Media-Darling Obama Volunteer?      Cache   Translate Page      
{{file|t=9Tt9p_1541284614}} Just days after the awful events of Pittsburgh, disgusting neo-Nazi graffiti was found Thursday inside a Brooklyn synagogue. NYPD officials told Breaking911 that the suspect entered Brooklyn's Union Temple around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night and used a black marker to deface three different locations with the messages, " rats we are here," " better be ready," and "Hitler." As one would expect, New York's officials were extremely quick to decry the disgusting actions, with NY Governor Cuomo releasing the following statement - with a clear intent to pin the blame on one side: "I am disgusted by the discovery of anti-Semitic graffiti at a house of worship in Brooklyn. At a time when the nation is still reeling from the attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, New Yorkers stand united with the community and against hate in all its forms. "In New York, we have zero tolerance for discrimination in our laws or in our spirit. I have directed the State's Hate Crimes Task Force to investigate this hideous act and hold those responsible accountable to the full extent of the law. "As Governor, I am also doing everything in my power to ensure our religious institutions are free from violence and intolerance. This week, we announced the launch of an additional $10 million grant program to help protect New York's non-public schools and cultural centers, including religious-based institutions. "The disgusting rhetoric and heinous violence in this nation has reached a fever pitch and is ripping at the fabric of America, and it must stop. In New York, we have forged community through chords of commonality and we will always stand together against hate and discrimination." Mayor Bill de Blasio called the hateful messages "tremendously upsetting." "Coming at a time when New Yorkers are feeling a profound sense of loss and sadness because of what happened at the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue and all those who were killed there because of their faith." But, in an interesting twist, according to Breaking911, surveillance footage released by authorities captured a photo of the suspect, "described as a male Black, approximately 20-years-old, 5'8'', 140 lbs, with black hair and last seen wearing a red suit jacket." And yesterday morning, the local CBS station confirms a man is in custody for the 'hate crime'. 26-year-old James Polite, of Brooklyn, allegedly wrote the graffiti, according to police. The suspect also drew a picture of the Puerto Rican flag and wrote "Free P.R." Additionally, sources tell CBS2, Polite could be behind a series of fires at other shuls and yeshivas in the area. He was charged with criminal mischief, hate crime, and making graffiti in connection to the messages scrawled at Union Temple. So not quite the white-supremacist, Trump-supporting, , bigot everyone was expecting? But, in an even more potentially shocking twist, it is possible that the alleged serial anti-semitic graffiti artist is a former Barack Obama volunteer and liberal media darling... Hey @BarackObama, Is this the same guy that volunteered for you during your campaign? https://t.co/hOG05xhc pic.twitter.com/XSMXwrl1X4 - Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 3, 2018 In 2017, The New York Times wrote a lavish lovefest of a story: James Polite spent much of his childhood in foster care. In high school alone, Mr. Polite estimates, he was placed in 10 different homes. And he received little encouragement from social workers to go to college. But Mr. Polite, now 25, still believed that college was the best next step. He found encouragement as a volunteer in his teens, registering voters and canvassing neighborhoods in New York City during Barack Obama's first presidential bid. ... Manhattan Democrat Christine Quinn still remembers their introduction on the steps of City Hall. "James was telling me his story," she recalled recently in an interview. "And I said, ' you have an internship?' And he said 'No.' And I said, 'Well, you now.'" "James was the adopted child of the Quinn administration," she said. "And it wasn't just me. It was the entire City Council staff." Of course, there could be another 26-year-old (25 in 2017) black male, living in Manhattan with the same name as James Polite, but we suspect that is a little unlikely. As The New York Times reports, towards the bottom of their puff-piece: Despite the assistance, Mr. Polite struggled at Brandeis. Smoking marijuana, he said, became a coping mechanism to manage his stress. He had first tried the drug at a foster home in his early teens, but in college his habit grew to three times a day. He was placed on a health leave of absence in late 2015 and required to enter a rehabilitation program. During treatment, he learned he had bipolar disorder, for which he is now medicated. More likely is the young man with a bright future, heralded by the liberal media and politicians as a success story waiting to happen, has seen his life take a much darker route. At the end of the day, democrats are still retarded.

          Comment on Hate Hits Nelsonville by Aaron Freimark      Cache   Translate Page      
These two acts of vandalism were both disrespectful to a religious group. But that is where the similarity ends. The spray painting was aimed specifically at a single family, on the inside of their new house. It was an act of violation and violence. It implemented powerful and unmistakable symbols of anti-Semitism. Most important, the spray painting occurred days after a man brought an assault rifle into a Pittsburgh congregation on the Sabbath and massacred Jews inside. This is not the same as rearranging letters on a signboard. Your inability to see the difference shocked me. Your willingness to choose this time to call attention to your own grievances offended me.

          Political neutrality in the classroom      Cache   Translate Page      

Teachers felt immense pressure from school leaders and families to respond in a certain way - or not at all - in their classrooms following the 2016 presidential election, according to new research from Michigan State University.

The study, published in the American Educational Research Journal, addresses the widespread but often unspoken idea of political neutrality in the classroom, and how that's not an effective teaching tactic, said lead researcher Alyssa Dunn, assistant professor of teacher education.

"There were many teachers who said they wanted to talk with students about the election and related issues but were also afraid of backlash," said Dunn, who conducted the nationwide questionnaire of more than 700 educators.

In the survey, some teachers said they felt election-related topics weren't appropriate in schools or weren't relevant to their subject. Others felt they shouldn't, or couldn't, share their political affiliations or feelings.

But the idea of neutrality, as this research indicates, doesn't always work in schools, because "education is inherently political," Dunn said.

She and her co-researchers argue that by remaining neutral, teachers are enacting the opposite of neutrality by "choosing to maintain the status quo and further marginalizing certain groups."
Dunn and her colleagues, Hannah Carson Baggett of Auburn University and Beth Sondel of the University of Pittsburgh, say the election is just one example of a renewed call for all teachers to consider the ethics of neutrality in the classroom.

"Midterm voting and the impact of results are an opportunity for them to say, 'I'm not going to be neutral,'" Dunn said. "Knowing what neutrality means, and how it can be a disservice to students and to themselves, teachers can think about how to adapt their curriculum leading up to and after the midterms and other major events."

Dunn said many educators and administrators believe that because something is happening "outside of school," it isn't relevant in the classroom. But that mentality is an injustice, she argues, and undermines the fact that the classroom is part of the real world.

In a separate study using the same data, the scholars studied what teachers did - or didn't do - in the days after the election. In that study, teachers reported their students were experiencing political trauma.

          Pope: let's pledge to ban anti-Semitism from humanity      Cache   Translate Page      

By The Associated Press


VATICAN CITY — Nov 5, 2018, 6:30 AM ET



WATCH: The U.S. Department of Justice has subpoenaed Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania in its investigation of abuse by priests.



Pope Francis is urging efforts to ensure that anti-Semitism is "banned from the human community."

Francis lamented current anti-Semitic attitudes as he greeted visiting rabbis from the World Congress of Mountain Jews from the Caucasus at the Vatican Monday. He didn't mention last month's massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. But he referred to the upcoming 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, when German Nazis attacked Jews and their property, and the recent 75th anniversary of the roundup and deportation of Jews in Rome, when the city was under Nazi occupation.

Francis said: "Sadly, anti-Semitic attitudes are also present in our own times. As I have often repeated, a Christian cannot be an anti-Semite; we share the same roots."

He added: "We are called to commit ourselves to ensure anti-Semitism is banned from the human community."

          A spectacular own goal      Cache   Translate Page      
It's hard to dispute the good work Stefan Molyneux has done in relation to race, Islam, IQ and feminism. He has become hugely influential and has demolished mainstream interviewers when challenged on these subjects. But just like Jordan Peterson he has a blind spot: The JQ. Both avoided it like the plague for a long time. And that's understandable. Because on the one hand virtually all of the Western pathologies they so eloquently decry have been driven by Jews, on the other identifying this fact would result in their being Shoahed into external darkness. Peterson was eventually forced to bite the bullet and came out swinging in defence of his masters. Molyneux has been a bit cagier, carefully fine-tuning both his material and his guest selections to avoid being put on the spot.

But he too has been flushed out by - in my opinion - the reaction to the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. You see whereas Jews did benefit from a public outpouring of sympathy, the shooter's anti-Jewish justification for the attack also attracted unwelcome attention. On some forums this subject, despite the frantic whack-a-mole efforts of the Comment Thought Police, began to take centre stage of the discussion. A worrying development for our (((overlords))). 

Time for Stef to step into the breach. It was not a pretty sight. The man of reason, of honesty, of logic, of Socratic discourse was replaced by a fact-mangling, tendentious, strawman-wielding, gaslighting huckster, deploying theatrical emotions in a way that would make a Mississippi evangelist blush. Here are just a few examples. First he uses the NAJALT argument, citing Jews that he knew who were opposed to all of the things, well, that most Jews espouse. 'Jews who bitterly opposed central banking, fiat currencies, open borders.....'. Yeah, sure Stefan. 'Some Jews work in Hollywood and Wall Street...' You don't say? Statistics-mangling: 'Jews are marrying out at an enormous rate'.  No, the statistics he recites refer to religious Jews who marry non-religious people, most of whom I suggest are racially Jewish. More statistics mangling: 'There are more non-Jews than Jews involved in [insert evil activity here]", while failing to remind us that Jews represent about 2% of most Western populations, non-Jews 98%.

Overall his analysis of the JQ revolves around Judaism as a religion. For the man who has done such sterling work on genetics and group differences to avoid the racial dimension of Jewishness can be nothing other than intentional gaslighting. At one stage he adopts a more positive tone, advising us, if we object to the behaviour of the media and big tech to build our own. "Just compete with Hollywood. Start your own channel. Make a better story and publicise it." Dang me, I never realised it was so simple. Must learn from Gab and Alex Jones how they did it. Oh wait....they're gone. 

He ends up with a lachrymose, theatrical appeals to reason, debate, tolerance and interaction. And then proceeded to delete offending comments as soon as they landed. However this action, and the whole video in my mind resulted in massive blow-back, exacerbating the very problem it sought to erase. Read just some of his readers' comments. Despite all the censorship they remain overwhelmingly hostile. Here's a typical one: "Strawman after Strawman. I expect much better from you Stefan. You used to confront the REAL questions head on, what is this????".

So here's my take. The likes of SM, JT, AJ, JP in a way seem to act as gatekeepers, to broach important and edgy subjects but in a way that directs 'inquiring minds' away from the JQ. But their excellent presentational skills only whet the appetite of the more intelligent goyim, which in turn gradually leads to a realisation of the war, the existential war, being waged against them.

More Stefan, more!

          A Moral Crisis      Cache   Translate Page      
Jewish leaders reflect on the recent attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue

Anti-Semitism isn't new to Rabbi Dovid Asher. He recalls visiting an amusement park as a young teenager and locking eyes with a stranger who took in his yarmulke and flipped him a swift, demonstrative middle finger. The experience was shocking and traumatic, he says, but stories passed down in his family were more impactful.

His grandmother made it out of Nazi Germany right before Kristallnacht in 1938. Tickets for passage to America were limited, and Asher says his grandmother always felt responsible for the death of her younger sister, who later died in Auschwitz.

"Just hearing my grandmother's stories, seeing the pain she was going through and thinking of her sister's murder in Auschwitz, that's all I ever needed in terms of understanding the evil of anti-semitism," Asher says. "I think she'd be beside herself, seeing how anti-Semitism has kind of risen again, when not so long ago it terrorized the Jewish community worldwide."

Like religious leaders across the country, Asher has spent the last week reflecting on the Oct. 27 shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead and several more injured. He was one of several Jewish clergy at a vigil in Richmond three days after the shooting, which more than 1,000 people attended. Asher, who grew up in Pennsylvania and came to Richmond in 2011 to lead the congregation at Keneseth Beth Israel, is careful and intentional with his words. He's hesitant to politicize the attack and its aftermath, partially in recognition of shiva, the week-long period of mourning in Jewish culture. During those first seven days, it's customary for observant Jews to sit with their grief and allow themselves to experience the pain in its entirety.

"I think we need to celebrate the lives and to appreciate the pain of the families," Asher says. "I think we need to wait a little bit before we publicly come out and have this conversation." That said, Asher is "terribly concerned about the polarization of this country" and wants to see more unification efforts from elected officials.

Rabbi Michael Knopf of Temple Beth-El, who was named one of Style Weekly's Top 40 Under 40 in 2017, echoes that sentiment, and is more forthcoming on the political front. Like his colleague across town, he's mindful that his congregation represents both ends of the political spectrum and his job is not one of a pundit. But mixed in with sadness and grief following the shooting is also anger and frustration with a climate that he says has emboldened people with hateful ideologies.

"It's really hard for me to separate what happened in Pittsburgh from what happened in Charlottesville last summer," Knopf explains. "In particular what happened when the president responded the way he did. White supremacists in this country had never had a bigger gift and endorsement than that."

That gift, he says, has long-lasting ramifications. The president's rhetoric around immigrants has normalized bigotry and white nationalism, he says, and it's no coincidence that the shooting happened days after known foes of the president received suspicious packages in the mail, or during a time of charged rhetoric around a group of immigrants heading toward the southern border. It's about more than discrimination against people of the Jewish faith, he says.

"It's all interconnected, and it stems from a really ugly campaign of vilifying anyone who could be perceived as other," he says. "We need to stand up for all targeted communities."

Safety is a priority for both rabbis, and there's frustration around the reality that they have to balance keeping their congregants safe without negatively impacting the quality of their work and services.

"We need to be vigilant of our security, but at the same time I want my congregation to be able to be open and welcoming to anybody who wants to experience the joy and beauty of Judaism with us," Knopf says. "It's harder to do that when you have to have an armed guard outside the door."

Both Knopf and Asher note that armed security guards are on the premises during services at their synagogues.

"What that means is we're effectively letting violent anti-Semites rob us of our ability to serve our community in other ways because we have to use those resources to pay for security," Knopf says.

Jewish Family Services' chief operating officer, Sydney Fleischer, says she feels safe as a Jew in Richmond, and it's important to prioritize security and have these discussions while still moving forward. She describes feeling lost and helpless on the day of the shooting.

"It's just stunning, and at first you feel like, 'How can I possibly do anything,'" she says. "Then you realize that any little thing you do matters. One of the Jewish values is that if you save one person you save the world."

As a clinical social worker, Fleischer advises people to talk through whatever they're feeling after a traumatic event, especially parents. It's not easy to tell a child of any age that hatred exists, she says, and a parent may never be able to adequately explain why someone may hate another person who's Jewish. That's why it's crucial to have open discussions and to "highlight the positive," leading by example and teaching diversity and inclusivity from a young age.

For more resources, Fleischer suggests checking out the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies at networkjhsa.org. Templates are available for writing letters to the bereaved in Pittsburgh, along with links to organizations accepting donations on behalf of the community. S

          Comment on Hit It or Quit It, Week 10: It’s Week 10, B*tches! Let’s Go Slumming! by Jennifer      Cache   Translate Page      
@<a href="#comment-710061" rel="nofollow">miles proudfoot</a>: Well, Buttercup, if you’re hellbent I’m heading into playoffs with only one of these QB’s, then I’d have to say Newton. He has a more favorable schedule the rest of the way out. Although he does have Pittsburgh this week and their defense has improved. You also have to consider Newton does like to run the ball so there may be more injury potential (he just had one recently). That being said, Ryan has a cake matchup this week so you may want to look at him this week and ride Newton into the playoffs if he stays healthy. Remember though that there are a lot of moving parts around him so a dominant performance in a game may not always translate well to fantasy points for him. The only trade I may consider if I was blackout drunk would be Ryan for Davis, but only if I desperately needed WR help. Out of the trio you offered, he’s the best choice. Hope this helps, Pumpkin!

          THE SPORTS DOCTOR'S WEEK 9 NFL PICKS      Cache   Translate Page      
Last week I was a consistent 11-3 (71-50) and 10-4 (61-60) against the spread.

Sunday Early

Detroit Lions (3-4) at Minnesota Vikings (4-3-1) 
Line: Vikings by 4.5

Vikings let last week get away from them and it won’t happen here. The Lions won’t be the same without Golden Tate anyway.

Dr. Football: Take the Vikings to win and cover.

Kansas City Chiefs (7-1) at Cleveland Browns (2-5-1) 
Line: Chiefs by 8.5

One only hopes Patrick Mahomes doesn’t get injured against this bunch of wanna be bounty hunters.

Dr. Football: Take the Chiefs to win and cover.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) at Carolina Panthers (5-2) 
Line: Panthers by 6.5

The Bucs can’t stop the pass, and Cam Newton is 4-0 at home. Won’t be close.

Dr. Football: Take the Panthers to win and cover.

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1) at Baltimore Ravens (4-4) 
Line: Ravens by 3

Baltimore is a much better overall team at home, have the league’s top-rated defense, and they have already beaten the Steelers in Week 4 and have won the last four out of five times they have played them at home. They’ll head into their bye with a win.

Dr. Football: Take the Ravens to win and cover.

New York Jets (3-5) at Miami Dolphins (4-4) 
Line: Dolphins by 3

In Week 2, the Miami held the Jets to 12 points in New York. Since then, the Miami defense hasn’t played as well, but they’ll still stop them at home.

Dr. Football: Take the Dolphins to win and cover.

Atlanta Falcons (3-4) at Washington Redskins (5-2) 
Line: Redskins by 1.5

Like the Falcons themselves, I’ve given up; they’re not the team I thought they were. Washington isn’t either; they’re better than I ever thought they’d be. I’m drinking the Kool Aid.

Dr. Football: Take the Redskins to win and cover.

Chicago Bears (4-3) at Buffalo Bills (2-6) 
Line: Bears by 10

All Chicago has to do is score is a field goal and they should have this one put away…the Bills won’t even get on the board.

Dr. Football: Take the Bears to win and cover.

Sunday Late

Houston Texans (5-3) at Denver Broncos (3-5) 
Line: Broncos by 1

After losing their first three, Houston has won five in a row. Denver alwsys is a tough place to play, but they should keep rolling.

Dr. Football: Take the Texans to win and cover.

Los Angeles Chargers (5-2) at Seattle Seahawks (4-3) 
Line: Seahawks by 2

The Chargers have won four in a row, five of six and are coming off their bye. Seattle has won three of their past four and the loss was a close one against the Rams. This is the game of the week.

Dr. Football: Take the Seahawks to win and cover.

Los Angeles Rams (8-0) at New Orleans Saints (6-1) 
Line: Saints by 1.5

The Rams were put to the test last week against Green Bay, and will be again this week against a New Orleans team that have won their last six in a row. Rams will fall.

Dr. Football: Take the Saints to win and cover.

Sunday Night

Green Bay Packers (3-3-1) at New England Patriots (6-2)
Line: Patriots by 5.5

The Packers held their own in L.A. on Sunday and really lost the game themselves. New England looked like they were practicing new schemes in Buffalo prepping for this one. I like Green Bay’s fight, but they can’t finish.

Dr. Football: Take the Patriots to win but not cover.

Monday Night

Tennessee Titans (3-4) at Dallas Cowboys (3-4)
Line: Cowboys by 6.5

All of Dallas’ wins have been at home and the Titans have dropped three in a row. Both teams are coming off their bye and will be rested, but it won’t matter as Tennessee can’t score.

Dr. Football: Take the Cowboys to win and cover.

Ellen Kessler sent the following tribute she wrote about Rose Mallinger (97 year old who died in the Pittsburgh killings): When one hears of mass killings, one’s heart aches for the victims and one’s brain reacts vigorously to yet another horror. We never do forget, but after a while, we become somewhat desensitized to the pain and shock that real lives were destroyed in our country. When I heard of the murders in a Squirrel Hill synagogue, I felt initially the usual disbelief, horror, and pain, but this was different because I had lived in Squirrel Hill. And when I realized that I knew and cared deeply about two of the victims, I was overwhelmed in a new and awful way. Rose Mallinger, the 97 year old murdered victim, and her 62 year old daughter, Andrea, had been caring and loving friends of mine. We lived in Pittsburgh from 1970 through 1973, and the Mallingers had been neighbors of ours. The family lived in a two-family house and Sylvia Moidel, Rose’s sister, lived in the other half with her family. Both families had teenaged daughters who baby-sat for my three daughters, ages 4, 2 and an infant. We had been living for a year in Miami near my parents and my extended family, and moved to Pittsburgh where the weather was freezing, the skies were gray, we knew no one, and everything seemed smoky and dark. I was in my twenties and my husband, who had a new job, was working hard, 7 days a week, early morning to evening. The children missed my parents and so did I. It was a hard time for me. Rose and her sister and their daughters reached out to us with kindness and affection, and they were the first hint to us that Pittsburgh and Squirrel Hill were great places to live. Rose had a birthday party for one of my girls and when our baby-sitters were with the children, they would often take them across the street to visit with their families, making them and us a part of their lives. I never saw Rose without a smile on her face. We cared so much about them. After Pittsburgh, we moved to four cities in the next 7 years, and we lost touch with our dear friends in Squirrel Hill. When I met Toby Schaeffer in New Orleans, we made the Pittsburgh connection: Toby was niece of Rose and Sylvia. Through Toby, we restored contact briefly but then, life moved on. Toby would update us periodically; not surprisingly, she loved and admired these wonderful people. She explained that Rose was vigorous and aware of everything, hard to believe that at 97. Now she reports that Andrea, Rose’s daughter who was also shot on Saturday, was hospitalized and needs another surgery but should recover. I wonder if the grief from losing her mother will retard her recovery--I hope not. I mourn with everyone the desecration and destruction that this anti-Semite brought to Tree of Life synagogue and its people, and I share the anxiety of us all about the apparent rise of anti-Semitism in our country. I again deplore this violence--here, in South Carolina, and everywhere-- and I grieve with everyone about the apparent corrosion of our country. Still, the incident is more than all of those because I and my family lost a friend. May her memory be a blessing to us all.

          "A Broad, Deep, Clerical Conspiracy" and "Bishop Accountability Has Proved a Contradiction in Terms": More Commentary      Cache   Translate Page      


And there's more: here's another diptych from recent commentary that I want to offer for your consideration — about a totally different topic than the one discussed in the diptych I just provided in my previous posting:


James J. Heaney, "Our Myth, Their Lie":

The structure [i.e., Roman Catholic clericalism] I have just described could hardly be better at catalyzing abuse. Look at Cardinals Egan and McCarrick. One was considered conservative, the other liberal, but both were notorious on abuse—and St. John Paul gave both the red hat. How about Cardinal Mahony and Cardinal Pell? Archbishops Finn, Wilson, and Bruskewitz? Or Cardinal Law, the great conservative prelate whose punishment was promotion? The same story unfolds today in Honduras, Chile, and Australia. Now we’ve learned from Pennsylvania that dozens of bishops, perhaps a cardinal, are implicated in a broad, deep, clerical conspiracy—a conspiracy that was well established years before my old scapegoats, Vatican II and the sexual revolution, were around to take the blame. This crisis was not caused by Marty Haugen tunes and the Land O’ Lakes statement. At the root of this crisis is structure—the particular way church governance has calcified in the past couple of centuries. That structure has to go.

Jenn Abelson, Thomas Farragher, Jeremy Roebuck, Julia Terruso and William Bender, "Catholic bishops promised reform in sex-abuse scandal. But they didn’t look at their own misdeeds": 

Bishop accountability has proved a contradiction in terms; resistance and indifference remain all too common. Even some of the bishops who wrote the 2002 reforms would themselves be accused of enabling or ignoring abuse. And the chairwoman of the new civilian board overseeing compliance with the reforms quickly despaired of the seriousness of the bishops' commitment, saying, in a 2004 letter not previously reported, that their pledge to change "appears to be nothing more than a common fraud." 
In short: The price of reform has been paid, visibly, by parish priests. Their bosses, however, have been largely spared.

From Ian:

The Future of the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre
In America, Jews have always been able to fight back against anti-Semitism freely. Never having received their emancipation as an “award” (which was the case in Europe), Jews have had no fears of losing it. Instead, from the beginning, they made full use of their freedom, especially freedom of speech. As early as 1784, a “Jew Broker,” probably the famed Revolutionary-era Jewish bond dealer, Haym Salomon, responded publicly and forcefully to the anti-Semitic charges of a prominent Quaker lawyer, not hesitating to remind him that his “own religious sectary” could also form ”very proper subjects of criticism and animadversion.” A few years later, Christian missionaries and their supporters faced Jewish polemics no less strident in tone. Where European Jews often prided themselves on their ”forbearance” in the face of attack, Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise, the great Reform Jewish leader, once boasted that he was a “malicious, biting, pugnacious, challenging, and mocking monster of the pen.” In more recent times, Jewish defense organizations have taken on anyone who maligned Jews, including national heroes like Henry Ford and General George S. Patton, as well as presidents of the United States.

American anti-Semitism has always had to compete with other forms of animus. Racism, nativism, anti-Quakerism, Anglophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Catholicism, anti-Masonry, anti-Mormonism, anti-Orientalism, , anti-Teutonism—these and other waves of hatred have periodically swept over the American landscape, scarring and battering citizens. Americans have long been extraordinarily pluralistic in their hatreds. Precisely because the objects of hatred have been so varied, hatred has generally been diffused. No one outgroup experiences the full brunt of national odium. Furthermore, most Americans retain bitter memories of days past when they or their ancestors were themselves the objects of malevolence. The American strain of anti-Semitism is thus less potent than its European counterpart, and it faces a larger number of natural competitors. To reach epidemic proportions, it must first crowd out a vast number of contending hatreds.

Anti-Semitism is more foreign to American ideals than to European ones. The central documents of the Republic assure Jews of liberty; its first president, in his famous letter to the Jews of Newport, conferred upon them his blessing. The fact that anti-Semitism can properly be branded “un-American,” although no protection in the formal sense—the nation has betrayed its ideals innumerable times including in our own day—still grants Jews a measure of protection. Elsewhere anti-Semites could always claim legitimacy stemming from times past when the Volk ruled and Jews knew their place. Americans could point to nothing even remotely similar to that in their own past.

America’s religious tradition—what has been called “the great tradition of the American churches”—is inhospitable to anti-Semitism. Religious freedom and diversity, church-state separation, denominationalism, and voluntarism, the key components of this tradition, militate against the kinds of us-them dichotomies (“Germans and Jews,” “Poles and Jews,” etc.) so common in Europe. In America, where religious pluralism rules supreme, there has never been a single national church from which Jews stand apart. People speak instead of American Protestants, American Catholics, American Jews, American Muslims, and American Buddhists—implying, at least as an ideal, that all faiths stand equal in the eyes of the law.

American politics resists anti-Semitism. In a two-party system where close elections are the rule, neither party can long afford to alienate any major bloc of voters—another reason why it is so critical that everyone take the time and trouble to actually vote. For the most part, the politics of hatred have been confined to nonvoters like African Americans, until they won the vote, or to nonvoting immigrants, or to noisy third parties like the anti-Catholic Know Nothings in the 19th century, or to single-issue fringe groups. America’s most successful politicians, now and in the past, have more commonly sought support from respectable elements across the political spectrum. Appeals to national unity, even in the era of Donald Trump, win more elections than appeals to narrow provincialism or to bigotry.

Of course, the fact that America has been “exceptional” in relation to Jews should not obscure the sad reality that there has always been anti-Semitism in America, as well as violence directed against other minority faiths. That history, as I read it, gives cause neither for undue celebration nor for undue alarm.

Alan Dershowitz on Trump, Israel, and Antisemitism
I recently spoke with Alan Dershowitz at the ZOA Gala at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan, where he was set to make a prominent speech.

Below is an edited transcript of our conversation.

Hannah Grossman: Mr. Dershowitz, can you give us a little preview of what you will be talking about tonight?

Alan Dershowitz: I’m talking about how important it is to have dialogue among people who may not agree. Mort Klein and I don’t agree about a great many things. He’s way to the right of me, but we talk to each other. We dialogue with each other. And I’m here to promote dialogue between the right, the left, [and] the center — not only within the Jewish community, but the more general political community. It’s a tragedy that we now shout at each other, demonize each other, [and] yell slogans instead of having reasoned discourse. We can learn from each other, and I think we ought to.

HG: Where do you think that changed, between the right and left, where the divide became so extreme that it seems that it is impossible to have some dialogue or commonality?

AD: Well, I think there a lot of contributing factors. I think the movement of the left to the hard left in the Democratic Party. I think the movement of the right to the hard right within the Republican Party. I don’t think President Trump has helped with his choice of language, and I don’t think that some of the Democrats have helped with their choice of language. I crave the old days when my friends Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch could sit together, and when Senator McCain could sit and work together with Joe Biden. Those days seem long gone, and I want to do everything in my power to bring them back.

HG: Bret Stephens said today at a panel that Donald Trump’s rhetoric has an effect on the culture. Can you describe that; what you think that is?

AD: I think that’s right. Look, I think President Trump has a mixed record. I think he’s done some very good things. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem was a terrific thing. I think his tough negotiating stance toward Iran has been very good. I don’t approve of his policies toward immigration. I certainly don’t approve of separating families the way he did early on, but you know, I’ve never agreed with anything any president did 100 percent.

I disagreed with a great deal of what President Obama did and if Hillary Clinton had been elected, I’m sure I would’ve disagreed with a lot of what she would do. But you don’t demonize, and he’s still the president, and you respect the office of the president. I was appalled at the so-called leaders in Pittsburgh who refused to welcome the president. I think everybody should welcome the president when there’s a tragedy and allow him to serve in his role as a mourner or bereaver-in-chief.
Qanta Ahmed: The ECHR’s ruling on defaming Mohammed is bad news for Muslims
In a monumental irony, the ECHR’s agreement with an Austrian court that offensive comments about the Prophet Mohammed were ‘beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate’ has handed a big victory to both Islamists and Islamophobes – while infantilising believing Muslims everywhere.

The case concerns an unnamed Austrian woman who held a number of seminars during which she portrayed the Prophet as a paedophile. After she was convicted by an Austrian court of ‘disparaging religion’ (and fined nearly €500), she appealed to the ECHR claiming the punishment breached her right to free expression. The court disagreed.

As a practising Muslim, I find this notion – that the Prophet was a paedophile – to be as abhorrent and nasty as they come; not to mention completely false. Yet I could not disagree more with the ECHR’s ruling.

For a start, it implies there is somehow a balance to be struck between people’s freedom of expression and the right of Muslims not to be offended. I just don’t understand this: how can the views of another individual possibly affect my faith or beliefs? Her ignorance – or anyone else’s for that matter – does not equate to my persecution.



Ben Shapiro: Voting for Democrats Isn’t Going to Curb Anti-Semitism
Trump is not the source of the true threats to Jews — anti-Semites are more prominent on the left than the right.

Over the weekend, Bari Weiss, a friend who writes for the New York Times, appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO show. Bari was bat mitzvahed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; she knew many of those who were shot and killed by a white supremacist two weeks ago. Her writing on the subject has been beautiful; she’s obviously both raw and real about the situation.

On Maher’s show, she made a number of good points about anti-Semitism more broadly and its rising threat both in the United States and across the world. But then she concluded with this calculation:

One thing that I think was made stark this week is that there are many Jews, including Jews that I know, who have liked many of Trump’s policies regarding Israel and the Middle East . . . but I hope this week that American Jews have woken up to the price of that bargain. They have traded policies that they like for the values that have sustained the Jewish people and frankly, this country, for forever. Welcoming the stranger, dignity for all human beings, equality under the law, respect for dissent, love of truth, these are the things we are losing under this president, and no policy is worth that price.

I have a number of problems with this statement.

To start, the part with which I agree: There’s no justification for Trump’s callous disregard for the truth, which I’ve criticized routinely. Nor is there justification for Trump’s treatment of the alt-Right from 2015 to 2017.

But Bari is wrong in two areas: First, she suggests that Trump presents a unique threat to Jews and Jewish values that outweighs the threat to Jews from other arenas; second, she links Judaism with her preferred immigration policies.
On Bari Weiss, Franklin Foer and the Values that Sustain Our People
So, for Jews who are appalled by Trump’s incendiary rhetoric but who still appreciate his policies on Israel, what should they do? Tell the president not to bother trying to “woo” us with Israel? That he so violates Jewish values that his favorable actions on Israel just aren’t worth it? That after Pittsburgh, we’re no longer willing to pay the price of that bargain?

And how would that work exactly? Weiss didn’t specify, but Franklin Foer, writing in the Atlantic, did have a suggestion to enhance Jewish security after Pittsburgh:

“Any strategy for enhancing the security of American Jewry should involve shunning Trump’s Jewish enablers. Their money should be refused, their presence in synagogues not welcome. They have placed their community in danger.”

Never mind that after Pittsburgh, the President said: “Anti-Semitism represents one of the ugliest and darkest features of human history. Anti-Semitism must be condemned anywhere and everywhere. There must be no tolerance for it.”

According to Foer, however, any Jew who still supports the president must be ostracized and shunned.

I wonder if Foer would be willing to stand outside a synagogue on Saturday morning with a sign repeating his message: “If you support Trump, your presence is not welcome. You have placed your community in danger.”
Amb. Alan Baker: After the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre, It’s Time to Adopt an International Convention on the Crime of Anti-Semitism
This proposal comprises the following unique elements, tailored to deal with anti-Semitism:
  • detailed preambular paragraphs documenting the history of anti-Semitism and recalling references to it in international instruments, in statements by senior international figures, and in relevant resolutions of international bodies;
  • an all-embracing definition of the crime of anti-Semitism and its component elements, based upon the various definitions adopted over the past years by various groups and institutions;
  • criminalization of manifestations of anti-Semitism that result in or are intended to result in violence;
  • action by countries to criminalize anti-Semitism in their own domestic law and to prosecute or extradite perpetrators;
  • international cooperation and exchange information on perpetrators and actions taken;
  • establishment by states of appropriate national educational programs to combat anti-Semitism;
  • establishment of an International Anti-Semitism Monitoring Forum for monitoring and coordinating actions by states and international organizations.
With the evident support of the UN Secretary-General and the challenge he placed before the international community, this proposal should be brought before the appropriate UN legal bodies for consideration, with a view to its being studied, amended, and accepted as an international treaty, criminalizing and punishing anti-Semitism.
It’s the antisemitism, stupid
In the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, two things are irrefutable: There are 11 dead innocent Jews and there is one hateful murderer. All else, as they say, is commentary.

The murderer is a classic antisemite of the most despicable sort. Regardless of the political contours of his warped mind, he believes one thing is certain: Jews have no right to live.

Sadly, this horror has brought forth a spate of finger pointing where people are looking to score political points by somehow attributing the deed to those they politically oppose.

This is harmful and wrong. If you want to look behind the curtain, beyond just the actions of the murderer, then you must conclude that the perpetrator here is antisemitism itself – a hatred that enables its adherents to blame anything and everything on Jews, attributing to them all the paranoid delusions that the irrationally hateful suffer from.

I have spent the last two years immersed in American college campuses helping to make the existential case for Israel. I have encountered not just rejection of Israel’s legitimacy, but the most vile Jew-hatred, over and over again, with little pushback from decent people.

There is a big distinction between free speech and moral conduct. I understand and support the right to voice your opinion, no matter how much I might disagree with it. But I also know that free speech cannot be the rationale for not calling out vile and hateful accusations.
An International View of the Pittsburgh Murders
The killing of 11 Jews at an American synagogue has now inserted itself into a sequence of other murders targeting Jews and their institutions in past decades.

Among the list of murders of Jews outside of Israel, the most lethal tragedy took place in South America in 1984. In the bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 85 people were killed. The largest terrorist murder aimed at Jews in Africa was the 2002 bombing of the Israeli-owned Paradise Hotel in Mombassa, Kenya, where 13 people were killed. In Europe, two of the most deadly attacks against a Jewish target took place at the Goldenberg restaurant in Paris, where six people were murdered in 1982 — and in a 2012 terrorist attack on a bus transporting Israelis near the Burgas airport in Bulgaria, where another six people were killed.

There is one major difference between the murders of Jews in the US and the three other continents. In Pittsburgh, the murderer was a white supremacist. In the other attacks, the perpetrators were Muslims. Even a superficial look at mega-antisemitism in the world shows that antisemitism coming out of parts of the Muslim world is currently the greatest threat to the Jewish people. Only there does one find heads of state who promote extreme hatred not only against Israel, but also against Jews. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed, for instance, has a long record of verbally attacking all Jews. There is nothing similar among heads of state in much of the Western world.

Liberalism and democracy by necessity overlap to a substantial extent. But they are not identical. France and Germany have learned from their pasts. Both limit hate speech. In Germany, one can spend a number of years in jail for insulting a part of the population. Many Europeans understand that the principle of free speech doesn’t mean that hate speech should also be tolerated.
Israel Plays an Important Role in Fighting Antisemitism
Today, everybody agrees that combating “cyber-hate,” including antisemitism and anti-Zionism, is a top priority. Israel’s Justice Ministry even has a department dedicated to the fight against online incitement. And the Global Forum Against Anti-Semitism, now under the auspices of the Israeli foreign affairs and diaspora ministries, is tackling Christian theological antisemitism, Holocaust revisionism, Palestinian denial of Jewish history, campus antisemitism, legislative assaults on Jewish practices like ritual slaughter and circumcision, and even antisemitism in sports.

Some experts warn that, unless the rising tide of hate crimes in the US is turned back, American Jewry will have to undergo a process of adopting European-style security measures. Synagogues and Jewish community centers in the United States may need to be protected from neo-Nazis, just as synagogues and Jewish community centers in Europe are protected from radical Islamists.

This means the adding of multilayered defenses to Jewish sites, including security screening with armed guards, surveillance systems, panic rooms, and sterile zones. If this is the unfortunate fate of American Jewish institutional life (I hope not), Israeli security expertise undoubtedly will prove helpful.

In the meantime, Israeli and Diaspora Jews should band together to draw strength from solidarity, jointly combat hate, and raise the flag of unafraid and vibrant Jewish life everywhere. Keep partisan politics out of it.
Democrats’ Deputy Comms Director Laughs About Rising Anti-Semitism in America
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's deputy communications director laughed about charges of anti-Semitism and the growing racism in America that many observers have pinned on a Democratic Party that is increasingly lurching leftwards.

Patrick Burgwinkle‏, a deputy communications director at the DCCC, responded to a tweet decrying the rise of anti-Semitism in America—which has appeared back on the radar in recent days after controversial National Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan took a trip to Iran and led chants of "Death to America"—by responding, "lol," an acronym for "laughing out loud."

The initial tweet, sent by veteran Congressional staffer Matt Wolking, decried the rise of anti-Semitism and included a link to a Slate article claiming, "The story of the midterms is about how Americans will respond to racism, bigotry, and hate."

"So true," Wolking wrote. "The racism endorsed and tolerated by the Farrakhan Democrats, the bigotry the establishment media exhibits against half the country, and the hatred of Christians, conservatives, and men smeared by the radical left as rubes and rapists."

The DCCC's Burgwinkle, in response to that tweet, wrote, "lol," raising eyebrows among some observers.
Pope Francis: A Christian cannot be an anti-Semite
Pope Francis lamented anti-Semitic attacks and remarked that “a Christian cannot be an anti-Semite” during an audience with Jewish emissaries on Monday.

The pope received four first time delegates of the World Congress of Mountain Jews at the Vatican.

Two weeks after the attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 worshipers Francis said in a statement: “Sadly, anti-Semitic attitudes are also present in our own times,” during his meeting with the emissaries of the Mountain Jews, the descendants of Jews who left ancient Persia and settled in the Caucasus.

“A Christian cannot be an anti-Semite; we share the same roots. It would be a contradiction of faith and life. Rather, we are called to commit ourselves to ensure anti-Semitism is banned from the human community,” he said.

The day after the Pittsburgh attack, the head of the Catholic Church said in his weekly prayers that “all of us are wounded by this inhuman act of violence.”
Trump yet to appoint traditional envoys amid antisemitism crisis
In the wake of a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, last weekend, White House officials debated who they should send to the grief-stricken town as a representative of the administration.

Their choice was not obvious. The administration has, for two years, declined to appoint traditional envoys to the fight against antisemitism here and around the globe, despite calls from Jewish organizations and a bipartisan group in Congress to do so.

US President Donald Trump has tapped neither a White House Jewish liaison, a post that has been responsible for communicating with the American Jewish community since the 1970s, nor a special envoy at the State Department to monitor and combat antisemitism, a congressionally-mandated position devoted to the fight against antisemitism overseas.

Administration officials instead chose to send Jason Greenblatt, the president's chief envoy for international negotiations, who– while an observant Orthodox Jew and an adviser on Jewish world issues to Trump during the campaign– has neither studied the issue nor spent his time at the White House engaging in outreach with the wider diaspora community.

White House officials tell The Jerusalem Post that in lieu of a formal liaison the president relies on decades-old relationships with Greenblatt and other close advisers, such as his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, for guidance on Israel policy and Jewish world concerns.
Why Linda Sarsour’s Denunciation of Pittsburgh Shooter is Meaningless
On the last Saturday in October, Robert Bowers shot and killed eleven members of the Pittsburgh Jewish community, physically injured six other people, including law enforcement officers, and created distress and turmoil for the entire American Jewish community. He’s been indicted in federal court on 44 counts, and may face the death penalty.

Bowers killed eleven Jews solely due to his annihilationist anti-Semitism, which was of the neo-Nazi variety. He provided a political cover – he wrote that he didn’t like the political positions held by some other Jews (not the ones he killed), who support certain immigration policies in this country. But as Alana Newhouse noted in Tablet Magazine, the truth was simply that “he had reached the end point of a brain-eating disease called anti-Semitism.”

One day after these brutal murders, Linda Sarsour once again put herself in the spotlight. She did so while attempting to portray herself as a defender of Jews.

While Sarsour denounced Bowers, she has, in the past, embraced a different unrepentant killer of Jews, Rasmeah Odeh.

Many of us, by now, may have forgotten about Odeh. However, just over a year ago she was deported from the United States, after admitting that she lied on her citizenship application. Odeh also killed two Jews, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner, who were students at Israel’s Hebrew University in 1969. She was convicted in a trial that was observed and deemed fair by the International Committee of the Red Cross.


Shmuley Boteach: No Holds Barred: Will Clinton, Schumer, Booker finally condemn Farrakhan?
Throughout history, antisemites of all stripes have sought to cast the Jews as something utterly worthless yet massively destructive. It was a way of making the act of killing a Jew something that was not only necessary but meaningless. Hitler’s SS troops, therefore, were able to exterminate tens of thousands of Jews in a day. You see, they were killing an infestation, not people.

It may be extreme to compare Farrakhan to Hitler. But he did it himself. During a radio interview, Farrakhan acknowledged the fact. “[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler.” Instead of rebuffing the comparison, he embraced it. “That’s a good name,” he said, “Hitler was a very great man.” He then reinforced it. “[Hitler] raised Germany up from nothing,” he explained, adding, “In a sense, you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing.” He’s also used the Holocaust as a metaphor to describe what awaited the Jews in hell. My late friend Christopher Hitchens personally heard Farrakhan punctuate a tirade against Jews with this: “And don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!”

The only question that remains is this: how could leading political figures like Bill Clinton have agreed to legitimize such genocidal hate by recently appearing on the same stage as Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin’s funeral? And given the unfortunate association, why didn’t Clinton immediately condemn Farrakhan’s genocidal Jewish reference?

Just days before his “termites” slur, Farrakhan announced the release of a new music album made in collaboration with some of the most powerful men in music, including Stevie Wonder, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and Common. At least seven members of Congress — including Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, Al Green and most famously, DNC whip Keith Ellison, have all sat down for personal meetings with Farrakhan while representing the American people in Congress. Farrakhan even attended a 2005 meeting of the Black Congressional Caucus. At that meeting, former president Barack Obama even smiled for a photograph with Farrakhan just three years before becoming president.

American Jews need to draw a line.

It is not only neo-Nazis that need to be condemned by Republicans. It is Farrakhan and his ilk who should be repudiated utterly by Democrats. Never again must mean exactly that: Never Again.
‘Ocasio-Cortez in a Scarf’
He [Denver Riggleman] views this as a big advantage over Cockburn, a former journalist who has treated Virginia's 5th more like a research project, telling The Intercept she spent three months investigating the district before announcing her run.

"I'm Virginian to the core," he said. "She lives in Georgetown and doesn't have a clue what's happening in the 5th district."

He thinks the media have left a lot of ground uncovered on his opponent.

"Her books are used by Stormfront and white anarchist groups to explain why the Jewish people are trying to take over," he said, referencing the anti-Semitic book Cockburn wrote with her British-born husband Andrew Cockburn. "That got less attention than jokes about Big Foot."

Riggleman read her book and said it was shocking. "She really believes that Israel has orchestrated a cabal to control U.S. foreign policy."

He described Cockburn as "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a scarf," saying she's run a far-left campaign calling for "Medicare for all, open borders, forgiveness of student debt, and free college."
PreOccupiedTerritory: J Street Vows Investigation After Endorsed Candidate Makes Pro-Israel Statement (satire)
A progressive political advocacy group calling itself “pro-Israel, pro-peace” promised today to get to the bottom of an emerging scandal, in which a politician the group supports in this week’s elections was recorded agreeing that the Jewish State has an unequivocal right to exist, defend itself, and determine its own character, organization sources reported today.

J Street executive director Jeremy Ben-Ami issued a statement to the organization’s donors and employees Tuesday acknowledging that Mike Rotch, a Democratic Congressional candidate running for office in California, had signed a petition circulating in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings two weekends ago, that called on American public officials to denounce antisemitism, including delegitimization of Israel.

“It has come to our attention that Mike Rotch may support Israel in ways that do not reflect the values of this organization,” the statement began. “We have made it clear on several occasions that our mission requires paying only lip-service to a secure Israel, while in reality pursuing an outcome that effectively destroys Israel as a Jewish State. If the reports of Mr. Rotch’s remarks are accurate, they call into question his suitability as a candidate for the sixty-ninth Congressional District. J Street will conduct a full investigation of Mike Rotch and then make its recommendations.”
Conspiracy theorist selected as Labour candidate in safe ward
It’s pretty shocking that cases like this no longer even seem surprising. But the views of Liam Moore are so outrageous I thought this latest example of Labour’s failure to deal with antisemitism warranted a post. Moore, who is an evangelical vicar (and part-time Phil Collins tribune act) has been selected as the Labour councillor candidate for Norris Green in Liverpool – close to Luciana Berger’s constituency. In 2014 he tweeted that “Rothschilds Zionist run Israel and world governments” and earlier this year compared Zionists – or simply those worried about antisemitism – to Judas:

‘We are seeing a very English right wing Zionist coup mate and sadly the Labour Party is infiltrated by sellouts who would sacrifice a labour government for their 30 pieces of silver.’

Sometimes, when challenged over antisemitism, Labour supporters point out that the number of cases identified reflects only a tiny proportion of the membership. But the real problem isn’t that a few members hold such vile views, but that they are able to spout them without being reported and dealt with by others, and are even, as in this case, thought suitable for elected office.


University investigates professor who claims Israel was behind 9/11 Twin Towers attacks 'with help from Zionists in US government'
Sussex University is investigating a professor after he claimed Israel were behind the September 11 attacks 'with help from Zionists in the US government'.

Professor Kees van der Pijl, the former head of its international relations department, used as his source an article entitled '9-11/Israel did it' by conspiracy theory site Wiki Spooks, which also claims Al-Qaeda is a front for Mossad, the Israeli spy service.

The retired academic, who was responding to an article criticising US sanctions on Iran, was immediately inundated with a storm of mocking tweets, including one that joked, 'Yes, and Bruce Lee was the first man on the moon, damn media!'

Sussex University said it is aware of the post and has not yet decided whether to take further action.

Van der Pijl tweet was posted on November 3 and read: 'Not Saudis, Israelis blew up Twin Towers with help from Zionists in US gov.'
Professor: BDS Panel at University of Michigan Was an ‘Unrelentingly Anti-Israel Propaganda Fete’
A professor at the University of Michigan said a recent panel hosted by the school on the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign was “a totally one-sided propaganda fete.”

Victor Lieberman, who teaches a popular history course on the Arab-Israeli conflict, said he was one of some 70 people who attended last week’s “Teach-In Town Hall,” which was organized by U-M’s Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS) after the university sanctioned a BDS-supporting professor who denied a letter of recommendation to a student who sought to study in Israel.

CMENAS director Samer Mahdy Ali said the event, which was backed financially by multiple U-M departments, would include a “decidedly pro-BDS” panel, followed by a discussion.

Lieberman estimated that less than two dozen undergraduates showed up on Monday morning, two days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh while shouting antisemitic epithets.
Regev demands Spanish minister intervene in water polo BDS fracas
Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev demanded from her Spanish counterpart to move a women’s water polo match between Israel and Spain back to its original venue, after Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions activists had forced its relocation.

“The BDS movements are clearly antisemitic in nature and operate to harm the State of Israel and its citizens,” Regev wrote. “It is my expectation that the government of Spain will take all the necessary steps in order to reverse the decision of the Municipality of Molins de Rei.”

Planned demonstrations by Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions activists led the municipality, just outside Barcelona, where the match was scheduled to take place, to move the game to a different venue and bar supporters.

Regev said Israel expected the organizers to “operate in accordance with the International Olympic Charter, [to] enable all sportsmen to compete as equals in the games.”

As of Tuesday noon, it was still unclear where the game would take place, if at all. Some sources reported that the game was canceled, but a PR company working on behalf of the Culture and Sport Ministry said the game was still on, in a new venue, with supporters banned. The ministry was still working to reverse the decision, the company said.

NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based watchdog that analyzes and reports on international NGO activity in regards to Israel, said the decision by the Spanish municipality came as no surprise, as funding of anti-Israel groups by the Catalonian government are no rarity.
Sky News Arabia report on Druze elections in Golan is riddled with distortions and falsehoods
The six falsehoods in the report are as follows:
Falsehood #1: “Israeli elections were forced upon the residents.”

Sky reports without challenge the claim from the Syrian government’s official news service (SANA) that the Israeli government forced elections upon residents of the Druze towns. In fact, the impetus for the elections elections was the effort of group of Druze residents of the Golan who fought in Israeli courts for the change of policy. An article in the Israeli “Walla” website elaborates (CAMERA’s translation):

“During the past eighteen months, six Druze petitions were brought before the supreme court, opposing the way the town council members and heads were appointed [prior to 2018, Israel’s Interior Ministry appointed them], and demanding that open municipal elections be held in their communities as well,” lawyer Fahd Safdi from Mas’adeh tells Walla News. “At the same time we launched letters to the Interior Ministry and applied heavy pressure so it would enable us to exercise our right to vote.”

Falsehood #2: “The voter participation rate ranged from between 0% and 1.5%.”

According to official Israeli statistics (in Hebrew), the participation rate in Majdal Shams was 3.3 percent, and 1.3 percent in ‘Ein Qenya. In Mas’adeh and Buq’atha the participation rate was indeed 0 percent, but, as the report itself points out, this was because the election process was cancelled in advance.

Falsehood #3: Israel has been engaged in “Judaization” in the Golan.

“Judaization” (Tahweed in Arabic) is a vague term among Arabic speakers than can signify any increase of either the physical, metaphorical or imagined presence of Jews in a given place; it is often used in the context of Jerusalem. This includes but is not limited to: Scholars searching for archeological findings in the Old City and its surroundings, visitors walking peacefully around the Temple Mount compound, or even a Christian individual trying to set the Al-Aqsa mosque on fire. The question of what “Judaization attempts” the report is alluding to goes unanswered. In 51 years of Israeli control, the construction of Jewish villages in the Golan Heights has rarely faced Druze opposition of any kind. Moreover, how a democratic process initiated by Druze, in which both the voters and the candidates are Druze, can be labeled “Judaization” is a mystery.
French Police Investigating Violent Assaults on Two Young Jews in Paris in Single Week
Two separate assaults on Jewish teenagers in the Paris area during the last week are being investigated by police as hate crimes, French news outlets reported on Monday.

The first incident occurred last Tuesday in Sarcelles — about ten miles north of the capital. According to news magazine Le Point, a young schoolgirl wearing the uniform of the Jewish school that she attends was approached by an older man who spoke to her in Arabic before punching her hard in the back. The girl told police that her assailant had also mimed the action of shooting a gun at her with his fingers.

Traditionally the home of a large North African Jewish community, tensions have increased markedly in Sarcelles over the last decade between Jews and a growing Muslim population. The neighborhood was the site of a full scale antisemitic riot in July 2014, when 300 mainly Muslims youths looted Jewish-owned shops and attacked a synagogue during a solidarity protest with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

A separate incident the following day was reported in the 19th arrondissement in northeastern Paris. A young man wearing a yarmulke was assaulted by three youths at a bus stop after he noticed that one of them was trying to pickpocket a laptop computer from his bag. After they spotted the young man’s yarmulke, the youths shouted antisemitic insults and pushed him to the ground, punching and kicking him as he fell.

Meanwhile, doctors, nurses, patients and other visitors to the Rothschild Hospital in Paris — named for the illustrious French-Jewish family — were greeted on Sunday morning with a lengthy antisemitic screed scrawled on one of the entrance walls.
Former Nazi SS concentration camp guard, 94, goes on trial in Germany
A 94-year-old former enlisted SS man went on trial Tuesday in Germany, charged with being an accessory to murder for crimes committed during the years he served as a guard at the Nazis’ Stutthof concentration camp.

Johann Rehbogen is accused of working as a guard at the camp east of Danzig, which is today the Polish city of Gdansk, from June 1942 to about the beginning of September 1944.

There is no evidence linking him to a specific crime, but more than 60,000 people were killed at Stutthof and prosecutors argue that as a guard, he was an accessory to at least hundreds of those deaths.

Stutthof prisoners were killed in a gas chamber, with deadly injections of gasoline or phenol directly to their hearts or shot, starved and even forced outside in winter without clothes until they died of exposure, prosecutor Andreas Brendel said.

The former SS Sturmmann, roughly equivalent to the US Army rank of specialist, does not deny serving in the camp during the war but has told investigators he was not aware of the killings and did not participate in them, Brendel said.
Doll that survived Holocaust goes on display at Yad Vashem
A doll called Inge that survived the looting during Kristallnacht in November 1938 was recently handed over to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and museum in Jerusalem by its owner and is now on display there.

Lore Mayerfield Stern, a Holocaust survivor from Kassel, Germany, was just 2 years old when the anti-Jewish riots known as Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass," caused massive destruction to Jewish property in her city and across Nazi Germany and Austria. During the pogrom, which took place on Nov. 9-10, 1938, at least 90 Jews were killed, 30,000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps, almost 300 synagogues were destroyed and thousands of Jewish homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed.

Inge, along with personal letters Stern had kept from that era, is now part of Yad Vashem's It Came From Within online exhibition, which marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht.

During Kristallnacht, Stern's father, Markus Stern, was one of the Jewish men arrested and was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. Young Lore and her mother, Kaetchen, were taken in and hidden by neighbors, who kept them safe during the riots.

"Lore, already in pajamas, hid with her mother at the neighbors' house until the pogrom was over. When they returned home, they found that the place had been torn apart and was not habitable," Yad Vashem states on its website.
Hyundai venture arm invests in Israeli computer vision startup allegro.ai
The corporate venture arm of Hyundai Motor Company has made a strategic investment of an undisclosed amount into Israeli startup allegro.ai., a developer of computer vision technologies based on deep learning, the companies said in a joint statement on Monday.

The partnership with allegro.ai will allow Hyundai to “speed up deployment of AI technology in many business areas,” improving the quality of its products and creating “a safer driving environment,” Hyundai CRADLE and allegro.ai said.

Founded in 2016, allegro.ai offers software that simplifies the process of developing and managing solutions and products, such as autonomous vehicles, drones, security and logistics systems, that are powered by artificial intelligence and deep learning. The software also allows customers to update their devices and their learning capabilities while in use, so every device can continue to improve its operations.

“Deep learning computer vision is one of the core technologies that can be applied to autonomous driving to navigate roads and make quick decisions in real-time – and allegro.ai is clearly an innovation leader in that field,” said Ruby Chen, head of Investment at Hyundai CRADLE Tel Aviv.

“Our investment in allego.ai is a further step in enhancing our presence in the Israeli market, a global leader of technological innovation in the fields of automation, artificial intelligence and deep learning,” he said. “This is our fifth investment in an Israeli company and our activities will continue to grow the coming year.”
IsraellyCool: Pharrell Williams at FIDF Gala: “You Guys Show An Incredible Resilience”
A few days ago I posted about the FIDF Gala that saw celebrities help raise $60 million for Israel’s IDF. The incredibly talented Pharrell Williams was the musical act, but what I did not know at the time were the touching words he said about the Jewish people, in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.

Providing entertainment was musical guest Pharrell Williams, who took a moment to share a few words about last week’s deadly shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“Look, what happened in that synagogue was incredibly cruel, it was wrong, and it’s not supposed to be what our nation is,” Williams said. “This group of people have been tested over and over and over again … but you guys show an incredible resilience.”


This makes me happy.
4,000 college students from 60 nations sing as one in TLV
Four thousand college students from 60 countries gathered in Tel Aviv in October for the latest mass singalong sponsored by the social music project, Koolulam.

The event, at Ganei Yehoshua, was attended by GA 2018 participants, graduates of MASA programs, MASA CEO Liran Avisar Ben Horin, Jewish Agency Chairman Yitzchak Herzog, Government Secretary Tzahi Braverman, and Masa Chairman Ilan Cohen.

Koolulam was founded with the goal of strengthening society through mass singing events in which large groups of non-professionals come together to create a collaborative happening.

The organization gathers as many as 12,000 people at a time from a broad spectrum of Israeli life, and then films the joint singing productions to share on social media.

In June this year, Jews, Muslims and Christians joined together at the Jerusalem Tower of David Museum to sing Bob Marley’s “One Love” in three languages as a show of unity from Israel. The video of the event went viral.


After 56 years of searching, IDF finds remains of pilot in Sea of Galilee
The Israeli military recently discovered the remains of a pilot, Lt. Yakir Naveh, who has been missing since his plane crashed into the Sea of Galilee 56 years ago, the army said Tuesday.

The remains were discovered on October 25 on the bottom of the Sea of Galilee, along with pieces of the aircraft.

Once they were found, the remains were sent to a forensic laboratory for identification, the army said.

The military’s Manpower Directorate informed the pilot’s family that his remains had been found, the army said.

His funeral was scheduled for November 13 at 3 p.m. at Tel Aviv’s Kiryat Shaul military cemetery.

On May 6, 1962, Naveh was training a cadet on a Fouga Magister when their plane got too low over the water and the engine cut out. The nose of the plane hit the water, sending them into a fierce spin, wing over wing.

A year later, a search team found the body of the cadet who had been flying the plane, Oded Kouton, but no trace of Naveh.

          NewsReal: Is War on ('Islamic') Terror Morphing Into War on 'White Nationalism'?      Cache   Translate Page      
The evils of 'white nationalism' has been a hot topic in the mainstream media lately, especially following the phony mail-bomb campaign targeting Democratic figures and the mass shooting of Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue, sparking countless 'soul-searching' psychological profiles of 'the typical Trump supporter' ahead of the US Midterm elections. If we reflect on older events, like the Battle of Charlottesville last year, or the massacre at a black church in Charleston in 2015, and even elsewhere in 'NATOstan' - the massacre of children of Norwegian elites by Anders Breivik in 2011, for example - it's clear that this theme of 'white extremists' holding severe grudges against 'all racial and ideological enemies' has been percolating to the surface for some time. Is it mere coincidence then that - just as nationalist feeling is growing in countries the world over, and producing electoral results that 'shock' the status quo - extremist caricatures of nationalism begin proliferating, occasionally commit atrocities, and thus blacken nationalism and mandate government crackdowns on all dissent that 'smells like nationalism'? This week on NewsReal With Joe & Niall, your hosts wonder if the 'War on Terror' has become what it apparently always wanted to be: a war on political dissidents.

Summary

No news is good news. 60% of wildlife has been wiped off the planet since 1970. Mexican police kill a man in the migrant caravan on the border with Guatemala. Ever since Trump openly declared himself a nationalist last week, there has been an escalation of far-right violence. We interview an anarchist who works at the Tree of Life synagogue where an anti-Semite massacred 11 people on Saturday, as well as two people in the Outlive Them network about the upcoming International Days of Action against Fascism and Anti-Semitism. We also draw connections between the election of Bolsonaro in Brazil and anarchist resistance to Trump and democracy itself in the United States. Send us news, events, or ideas on how our show can better serve anarchist activity in your town by emailing us at podcast@crimethinc.com.

Reference the Pittsburgh massacre of people praying at a synagogue, mostly elders, extracts from The Washington Post follow:


massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa 


The three-minute phone call with the President jarred Peduto, 54, the popular second-term Democratic mayor of the Steel City, just as he was trying to get his head around what was happening. After offering thoughts and prayers - and pledging anything Peduto needed, including a direct line to the White House - Trump veered directly into policy, Peduto recalled. The President, Peduto said, insisted on discussing harsher death penalty legislation as a way to prevent such atrocities. Peduto was stunned into silence.

"I'm literally standing two blocks from 11 bodies right now. Really?" Peduto said, noting that he was numb and believed that talking about the death penalty wasn't "going to bring them back or deter what had just happened. I ended the conversation pretty quickly after that"
.

Though talking about a horrible sad event, Pittsburgh Major Bill Peduto captured succinctly the impracticality of President Trump's ultra-harsh right-ish reaction to the shooting, to wit, insisting on harsher death penalty legislation as if it will be a solution or an effective way of preventing such atrocities.


Criminologist institutes around the world have shown that the death penalty for serious crimes such as murder or drug trafficking has no effect on those serious crime rates. Singapore, despite its ruthless capital punishment for drug traffickers, will find it will have to keep hanging those drug traffickers, whether of the naive or sinister type, because the punishment won't deter the crime.


Naturally people whose love ones had suffered at the hands of evil killers, murderers, drug traffickers or terrorists want to see the caught criminals receive the ultimate punishment. I can understand their wish but they are NOT the best people to ask for advice on capital punishment, given their emotional state of mind.

National (political, social, religious, legal, etc) leaders are the ones to make a sound national decision on whether Malaysia should continue to have such a draconian punishment. I am glad that the Malaysian government has made a merciful decision to join the 'civilised world' by abolishing capital punishment, though the new law is yet to be implemented.

The '30 years' imprisonment in lieu is a separate topic to be discussed in a separate post.



Those advocating death sentences claim it's 'justice' for the dead victims, but let us hear from the dictionary what is meant by 'justice'?

It's defined as:

(a) the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness:to uphold the justice of a cause.


(b) rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of ground or reason: to complain with justice.

(c) the moral principle determining just conduct.

Is having a law to kill people a moral righteousness or just conduct?

Or is it more of 'revenge'?

Let us see what the dictionary says of 'revenge'.

It's defined as:

(a) to exact punishment or expiation for a wrong on behalf of, especially in a resentful or vindictive spirit: He revenged his murdered brother.

(b) to take vengeance for; inflict punishment for; avenge:He revenged his brother's murder.

It's all about the biblical "An eye for an eye" or "A tooth for a tooth", or the law of retaliation.


That, alas, is the sad principle of capital punishment.

The principle is sometimes referred using the Latin term lex talionis or the law of talion. The English word talion means a retaliation authorized by law.

In other words, as an example, if any of our loved ones has been murdered, our state law allows us to 'murder' that murderer in retaliation, and fCk righteous 'justice'.


Let me append a posting by Brother Haris Ibrahim, an exemplary citizen of righteous calibre, as follows:

Why I am for the abolition of the death penalty

I have written on this previously, and my views remain the same, so I am just going to reproduce excerpts here of what I wrote before.

I want to share my thoughts on why I think the death penalty is wrong, but allow me to first digress for a moment.

Irene is in her 70’s.

One night, as we talked, the subject moved to illness, suffering and death.

We both agreed that we were ready for death, but we did not want to suffer.

Irene then popped this question: if she was terminally ill and in great pain, would I, at her request, end it for her?

I said I would. I then asked if she would do the same for me.

She said she would.

We promised each other that night that if either was in a situation where death was imminent and was suffering great pain and requested to end it all, the other would do the necessary.

The truth, though, is, if confronted with this situation, I do not really know if I’d be able to go through with my promise to Irene.

Taking another’s life in these circumstances is called euthanasia.

Wikipedia explains euthanasia as “a deliberate intervention undertaken with the express intention of ending a life, to relieve intractable suffering“.

Most jurisdictions treat euthanasia as a criminal offence.

A culpable homicide.

Even if carried out to relieve intractable suffering.

Why?

Because life is precious, and no-one, absolutely no-one has the right to take life?

Really?

What of the death penalty then?

The death penalty is the deliberate intervention undertaken with the express intention of ending a life, to …..

To what?

To give expression to our wrath?

To give expression to our sense of horror?

An eye for an eye?

One life for the many lost to drugs?

To remove a menace from the midst of our loving society?


This loving society will not condone mercy killing because no-one has the right to take life, yet we sanction the deliberate intervention by the hangman undertaken with the express intention of ending a life, to give expression to our wrath, our sense of horror? To exact society’s pound of flesh? To keep the rest of us safe?

We condemn the violent deaths inflicted by wars, yet we collectively sanction the violence inflicted on another life by placing the noose round his neck and dropping the trapdoor below his feet, so that the force of the drop will severe the lifeline of his spinal cord?

Is this the society that we are?

I do not support the death penalty because I do not believe we have the right, individually or collectively to end another’s life.

The death penalty, for me, is state-sanctioned violence.

Some proponents of the death penalty, without addressing the prior question whether we have the right to take life, advocate that a more humane intervention, rather than by hanging, be undertaken with the express intention of ending a life.

They advocate death by lethal injection.

          Snake Appears on Temple Mount: Sign of Coming Third Temple?      Cache   Translate Page      

A snake wriggling out from between the stones of the Western Wall in search of a meal brought with it a message straight from Jewish mystical teachings, connecting the archetypal enemy of man with the high priest in the temple, and also, perhaps, serving as a harbinger of the Messiah.

Women who went to the Kotel (Western Wall) on Wednesday were shocked to see a snake crawling out from between the ancient stones. The coin snake, common to the region, is not venomous but it is similar in appearance to the deadly viper, also found in Israel. The snake was probably seeking a meal of pigeons or eggs, but it brought with it a powerful message.

A Hebrew-language blogger quoted by Ynet News noted the serpent made its Jerusalem appearance during a hotly contested mayoral election, connecting it to the destruction of the second temple.

"The snake appeared during this time of dispute and divisiveness at the site of the temple which was destroyed because of widespread hatred and divisiveness."

Another commentator saw a connection between the reptilian appearance and current events, referring to a recent head-on automobile accident near the Dead Sea that killed a family of eight and the horrific murder of 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"How symbolic that this snake should appear at the place that is the heart of the Jewish people, where so many Jews were killed, at a time when Jews are still being killed. We have received a symbolic warning from these holy stones."

Pointing to the pigeon that fled the snake in the video, Sod1820, a Hebrew language kabbalah site, cited Midrash (homiletic teachings), Israel is compared to a pigeon or dove, noted for the faithfulness in having a single partner in its lifetime. Such is Israel, faithful to Hashem (God, literally, "the name") even in times of danger.

"We are truly in the dangerous times that directly precede Mashiach (Messiah)," the article in Sod1820 read. "Just as the pigeon is safe so long as it seeks shelter among the stones of the Temple Mount, the Jews are protected by the Torah commandments. When the pigeon comes out from the stones or the Jews move away from the Torah, they are in danger."

The site also claimed the appearance of a snake coming out of the stones of the Temple Mount could be seen as an auspicious sign. In gematria (Hebrew numerology) nachash (snake) × ×—×© equals 358, the same as Moshiach (Messiah) משיח. The Zohar (the basis of Jewish mysticism) explained that the evil inclination, personified by the snake in Eden, will make a resurgence in the days before Messiah, tempted to come and drink sustenance from the enormous levels of holiness that will appear in the world in the end-of-days.

It was noted in Sod1820 that the snake appeared in the women's prayer section, emphasizing its relevance to women. In Genesis, it is described how Eve was tempted into sin by the snake.

Now the serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild beasts that Hashem had made. He said to the woman, "Did Hashem really say: You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?" (Gen. 3:1, The Israel Bible).

According to Jewish tradition, the curse of Eve, represented by menstrual blood and labor pains, will be canceled in the Messianic era. Before the Messiah, God will kill the archetypal snake, removing the curse of Eve.

Another connection between the lowly snake and holiness is implicit in the Hebrew words. The letters of the word nachash can be rearranged to spell choshen (breastplate), worn by the Kohen Gadol (high priest) in the temple. The Zohar states that the tikkun (fixing) of the snake would be accomplished in the third temple by way of the breastplate.

Embedded in the breastplate were 12 precious stones, each representing a tribe of Israel. When faced with a difficult situation, the kings of Israel could inquire, and the stones of the breastplate would shine in sequence, providing them with a divine response to their question. This was a Tikkun for the snake that gave a deceitful response to Eve.

It does indeed seem like the Temple Mount is trying to speak to the Jewish people. About four months ago, a large piece of one of the stones, weighing several hundred pounds, suddenly fell, barely missing one of the women who came to pray at dawn. Another sign appeared on Hoshana Rabba, the last day of Sukkot, when a large cloud of mist began billowing up from the ground inside the Temple Mount compound, surrounding the Dome of the Rock for several minutes. {eoa}

          Nächster Rekord! Chiefs-Star Mahomes brilliert       Cache   Translate Page      

Er liefert eine starke Performance nach der anderen ab, so auch an diesem NFL-Spieltag. 

In Woche neun durfte sich der Quarterback der Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, über einen neuen NFL-Rekord freuen. Noch nie in den letzten 68 Jahren ist ein Spielmacher so gut in die Saison gestartet wie der 23-Jährige. Beim 37:21-Sieg gegen die Cleveland Browns warf Mahomes drei Touchdown-Pässe, zwei davon auf Tight End Travis Kelce. (SERVICE: NFL-LIVESCORES und die NFL LIVE bei DAZN)

In seiner zweiten Saison hat Mahomes in neun Spielen bereits 29 Touchdown-Pässe erfolgreich angebracht. Zudem darf er sich bereits jetzt über 3.185 Yards freuen, die meisten aller Quarterbacks in den ersten zehn Saisonspielen seit 1950. In jedem der letzten acht Spiele hat er mehr als 300 Yards auf das Scoreboard gebracht. 

Hunt gelingen drei Touchdowns

Und auch seine Offense steht Mahomes in nichts nach. Zu den zwei Touchdowns von Kelce fügte Running Back Kareem Hunt drei weitere hinzu. Cleveland hatte gegen die starke Chiefs-Offensive keine Chance.

Der Rookie-Quarterback der Browns, Baker Mayfield, durfte sich zwar über zwei Touchdown-Pässe freuen, musste wie sein Gegenüber aber auch eine Interception hinnehmen. 

Kansas City steht mit einer Bilanz von 8:1 unangefochten an der Tabellenspitze der AFC West, die Browns sind in der AFC North mit zwei Siegen und sechs Niederlagen auf dem letzten Platz zu finden. 

Peterman mit schlechter Leistung

Genau wie für die Browns gab es auch für die von Niederlagen geplagten Buffalo Bills einmal mehr nichts zu lachen. Gegen die Chicago Bears verlor das Team von Spielmacher Nathan Peterman mit 9:41. Peterman war es auch, der mit katastrophalen Stats einmal mehr negativ auf sich aufmerksam machte. 

ANZEIGE: Die NFL bei DAZN. Jetzt kostenlosen Testmonat sichern!

Zwar lief der 24-Jährige einmal mit dem Ball erfolgreich in die Endzone, dafür verursachte er aber auch drei Interceptions. Kurios dabei: Zur Halbzeit hatte Peterman keinen Touchdown, dafür aber bereits zwei Interceptions auf dem Konto. Zudem hatte er 12 von 19 Pässen für 75 Yards an den Mann gebracht. Diese Werte genügten, um sein Passer Rating von 31,4 auf 31,5 zu erhöhen.

Sein Gegenüber Mitchell Trubisky erwischte ebenfalls nicht seinen besten Tag. Dem jungen Quarterback gelang nur ein Touchdown-Pass auf Trey Burton. Zwei weitere Touchdowns erlief Running Back Jordan Howard. Zudem waren die Bears jeweils mit einem Touchdown nach einem Fumble und einem nach einer Peterman-Interception erfolgreich.

Fitzpatrick zaubert bei Niederlage

Ein richtiges Punkte-Festival durften die Fans bei der Partie zwischen den Carolina Panthers und den Tampa Bay Buccaneers bewundern. Mit 42:28 besiegte die Franchise von Quarterback Cam Newton die Bucs - der Spielmacher der Panthers durfte sich dabei über zwei Touchdowns freuen.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, der erneut anstelle von Jameis Winston für die Bucs auflief, überragte erneut mit seiner Leistung. Vier Touchdown-Pässe zauberte "Fitzmagic" auf das Feld, allerdings warf er auch zwei Pässe in die Hände seines Gegners.

Die Bucs liegen in der NFC South mit einer Bilanz von 3:5 auf dem letzten Platz, die Panthers stehen in der NFC South nur knapp hinter den Saints auf Rang zwei.

Jones mit erstem Touchdown der Saison

Durchaus überraschend verlief das Spiel zwischen den Washington Redskins und den Atlanta Falcons. Mit 14:38 verloren die Redskins im eigenen Stadion und vor allem ein Spieler der Falcons war nach dem Spiel überglücklich. Wide Receiver Julio Jones durfte sich nach einer endlos langen Zeit des Wartens zum ersten Mal in dieser Saison über einen Touchdown freuen. 

Ende des letzten Viertels fing der 29-Jährige einen 35-Yard-Touchdown-Pass von Matt Ryan. Der Spielmacher der Falcons erwischte in Washington ohnehin einen wahren Sahnetag. Vier seiner Pässe fanden erfolgreich den Weg in die Endzone.

Katastrophen-Abend für Darnold

Einen richtig üblen Abend erlebte der Quarterback der New York Jets. Bei der 6:13-Niederlage gegen die Miami Dolphins warf Sam Darnold nicht einen einzigen Touchdown, dafür aber ganze vier Interceptions.

Sein Gegenüber Brock Osweiler hatte weder das eine, noch das andere.

Alle Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Sonntag, 4. November:

Buffalo Bills - Chicago Bears 9:41

          American Carnage: the worst week in recent American history      Cache   Translate Page      
Looking back on President Donald Trump's inauguration speech let us reflect one week on from a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue and as US military troops are being deployed to protect American from huddled masses.

          Why Trump’s pathologies make this election unlike any other      Cache   Translate Page      

Lying, demonisation and bigotry – are being actively, openly and relentlessly encouraged by a political leader

Three weeks before the midterm elections the first of several mail bombs started arriving at the homes or workplaces of Donald Trump’s critics, including the media, and kept coming for a week. The devices appear to have been sent by an unstable man radicalized by Trump’s rhetoric. A few days after the first mail bomb was found, an armed man tried to break into a black church in Jeffersonstown, Kentucky. When he found the door locked he went to a nearby supermarket and shot dead two elderly black people. When a white passerby with a gun challenged him he reportedly said: “Whites don’t kill whites.”

The next day an antisemitic gunman entered a synagogue in Pittsburgh and shot 11 people dead at prayer. The gunman was at least in part motivated by the notion that, through its support of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (Hias), the synagogue backed the caravan of Central American asylum seekers and immigrants coming through Mexico. Shortly before the attack he wrote: “Hias likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.” When he entered the synagogue he allegedly shouted: “All Jews must die.”

Homily for the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time
Scriptures for today's Mass
 
Audio



When the bible speaks about love you can be sure of on thing:
it’s not talking about romantic love.

The scriptures were written in the days of arranged marriages.
Folks didn’t marry because they had fallen in love,
they married because their parents had arranged for them to do so.
A couple might indeed fall in love
over the course of time in their marriage
- but that wasn’t guaranteed.

Does that mean that marriages were “loveless?” 
It might seem that way to us as we look back to ancient times.
But there was room for plenty of love in arranged marriages -
- all depending on how you define love.

In our own times, we often tend to understand love as an emotion,
a feeling,  an affection, a desire, a sentiment, a delight, an energy -
and therein lies a problem.

What happens when emotions fade and fade away?
What happens when feelings dissipate, when affections wane?
What happens when  the heat of desire cools,
when our energy is spent, when sentiments change,
when delight diminishes?

There’s a reason why the scriptures speak of love as law,
why Jesus speaks of love as a commandment.

I can promise to obey a law.  I can pledge to keep a commandment.
But I can neither promise nor pledge
to maintain an emotion or keep a feeling alive.

Feelings and emotions can strengthen and deepen a pledge of love,
but feelings and emotions alone aren’t enough,
aren’t strong enough, not constant enough, to keep love alive.

When I make a promise to love and then things get difficult
it’s not always love that gets me through the hard times,
rather, it’s my promise that provides the bridge over troubled waters
and keeps me faithful to the love I pledged.

Understood this way, love is at least as much a function of the will
as it is an affair of the heart.
And this is the kind of love that God, through Moses,
enjoined on the people of Israel
in the words of today’s first reading.

For Jewish people the words of this law of love have become a prayer.
It’s called the Shema since in Hebrew it begins with the words,
Shema, Israel,  Hear, O Israel:
Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!
Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God,
with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength.

This is the law, the love that Jesus quotes and teaches
as the greatest of all the commandments,
of all the statutes and laws of God, this is the greatest.

Even to this day,
observant Jews recite these words from Deuteronomy
twice each day: in the morning and in the evening.

Recalling that these words form the creedal and moral basis
of our nation’s two largest faith groups,
it would seem that in many important ways we have allowed
feelings and emotions to override promise and pledge
when it comes to keeping that commandment
deemed the greatest by Jews and Christians alike.

It may be well past the time when we should study
which dynamics of love drive our faith and shape our moral lives
especially when it comes to relationships,
and in particular, marriage;
and when it comes to justice,
especially for the marginalized and displaced,
and when it comes to morality, especially when its demands infringe
on our personal convenience and comfort and wealth.

And the starting point for examining such realities
is in my own life and yours.

Is my response, is your response
to the commandment to love God and neighbor
something that changes with the tides of emotions and feelings
- or is it grounded in a pledge to live as God calls us to live,
to make decisions and choices in terms of greater goods,
to understand love as at least as much a matter of the will
as it is an affair of the heart?

Which dynamics are modeled for us
in the stories and decisions and choices we see
in movies, in literature, in popular culture, in politics?

Do we live and love by emotions and affections
or in faithful response to a law of love
that we’re called to follow, that we’ve pledged to follow?

A week ago, tragedy struck Pittsburgh and our whole nation.
The people gathered at the Tree of Life Synagogue
were people who would have prayed their morning Shema
just hours before the peace of their worship
was shattered by violence.

On Friday nights, our Jewish neighbors in Concord
gather at Karem Shalom, Concord’s synagogue
for their weekly Shabbat service
which includes the prayer, Shema Israel.

The night before last, as a sign of our solidarity with Jews everywhere,
Concord Christians gathered in a great arcing semi-circle
in front of Kerem Shalom, about 150 of us.

We held candles, sang songs and carried signs which read,
Shabbat Shalom:  Sabbath Peace!
from West Concord Union Church, from Holy Family Parish,
from TriCon, from First Parish, from Trinity Episcopal.

Our purpose was to assure our neighbors of our support
and our pledge to provide a safe place for them to live and worship.
We stood there not because it felt good -
although our doing so generated many good feelings.
We stood there because that is what our faith invites us to do,
what our faith calls us to do, indeed,
what our faith commandsus to do.

At the heart of our weekly prayer on our Sabbath, the Lord’s Day,
we gather in the shadow of the Cross,
 a Cross Jesus carried upon his shoulders - not because it felt good -
but because he chose to live,
faithful to the love his Father asked of him.
Or, as Jesus himself put it,
 “Not my will, but your will be done…”

May the sacrament we celebrate and receive at this table,
remembering Jesus’ love for us,
nourish and strengthen us
to love as we have been commanded to love
and to do the will of God whose love for us knows no bounds.

I’m Jewish, and I Think the Biggest Increase in Anti-Semitism Is From the Left

Dennis Prager

All my life I have reminded fellow Jews in America that we are the luckiest Jews to have ever lived in a non-Jewish country.

I know what I’m talking about. I wrote a book on anti-Semitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, and fought anti-Semitism since I was 21, when Israel sent me into the Soviet Union to smuggle in Jewish religious items and smuggle out Jewish names.

Even after the massacre of 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue, this assessment remains true.

But the greatest massacre of Jews in American history is a unique American tragedy.

It is a tragedy in part because America has finally made the list of countries in which Jews were murdered for being Jews. While this was probably inevitable, given that 330 million people live in America, it is painful—equally for me as an American and as a Jew.

And second, while there is no difference between the murder of Christians at a church and the murder of Jews in a synagogue with regard to the loss of life and the suffering of loved ones, there is something unique about the murder of Jews for being Jews: Anti-Semitism is exterminationist. Anti-Semites don’t just want to persecute, enslave, or expel Jews; they want to kill them all.

On Passover, Jews read the Haggadah, the ancient Jewish prayer book of the Passover Seder. In it are contained these words: “In every generation, they arise to annihilate us”—not “persecute” us; not “enslave” us; annihilate us.

So, when the murderer yelled, “All Jews must die,” he encapsulated the uniqueness of anti-Semitism.

There is another unique aspect to anti-Semitism: It destroys every society in which it grows. The animating force within Adolf Hitler was Jew-hatred. More than anything else—desire for German “Lebensraum,” hatred of Bolshevism, a view of Slavs as subhuman—it was anti-Semitism that invigorated him. Anti-Semitism was not a Nazi scapegoat; it was the Nazis’ raison d’etre.

The results of German anti-Semitism for Germans alone: more than 5 million dead, including half a million German civilians; 130,000 more civilians murdered by the Nazi regime; 12 million Germans expelled from East Europe, 2 million of whom died; innumerable rapes of German women; Germany divided in two for half a century—and the loss of a sense of self and reputation.

I have no idea if, outside the universities and the Israel-hating left, there has been an increase in anti-Semitism in America. I wish I could trust the Anti-Defamation League, other Jewish organizations, and Jewish community newspapers. Sadly, only Jews on the left do, because most of these organizations have a left-wing, anti-Trump agenda.

Here’s a perfect example:

The mainstream left-wing media, along with left-wing Jewish organizations and media, told us every day for months after Donald Trump’s election that anti-Semitism had greatly increased. They cited the great number of Jewish Community Centers that received bomb threats.

It turned out, however, that about 90 percent of those threats were called in by a mentally disturbed American Jewish teenager living in Israel, and the other 10 percent were made by a black radical seeking to frame his ex-girlfriend.

So, the claim eventually vanished from the news—with not one Jewish or non-Jewish organization or media outlet apologizing for crying anti-Semitic “fire” in a crowded theater.

The dishonest now have the Pittsburgh massacre to blame on Trump. But that’s as big a falsehood as blaming Trump for the bomb threats. In reality, the Pittsburgh murderer criticized Trump for his close connections to Jews and Israel.

For Jews to blame the most pro-Israel president since Harry Truman—the only president with a Jewish child and Jewish grandchildren, moreover—for increasing anti-Semitism is another example of a truism this Jew has known all his life: Unlike Jewish liberals, who get most of their values from Judaism, Jewish leftists are ethnically Jewish but get their values from leftism.

The biggest increase in anti-Semitism in the last 10 or so years has come from the left. Just ask young Jews who wear yarmulkes or are vocally pro-Israel on most American college campuses. And this generation’s threat of Jewish annihilation comes from Israel’s Iranian and Arab enemies.

As a Jew who attends synagogue every Shabbat, and as an advocate for the carrying of concealed weapons, I fervently pray we will not need armed guards at American synagogues. America’s uniqueness has been exemplified by the fact that Jews do not need armed guards in their synagogues.

May it always be so.

Even if you don’t love Jews—if you only love America—you need to fight anti-Semites. As the Jews go, so goes the fate of the nation in which they live.

Tanzania announces 'surveillance squad' to hunt down homosexuals

All too often the LGBTQ community joins in the condemnation of white Christian males. But they are in for a rude surprise when the white Christian males are no longer in charge. And importing other people who believe like this while neutering the Christians is going to do what in the USA eventually? and Europe?

Residents in Tanzania’s biggest city have been urged to inform on their neighbours and friends ahead of a police operation to hunt down and jail homosexuals.

A 17-member committee appointed by Paul Makonda, Dar es Salaam’s powerful regional commissioner, will attempt to identify all gay men living in the coastal city after it first convenes next Monday.

Mr Makonda, a close ally of Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli, said that a list of 200 suspects had already been drawn up thanks to public tip-offs and a trawl through Tanzanians’ social media accounts.

“I have information about the presence of many homosexuals in our province,” he told reporters. “These homosexuals boast on social networks. Give me their names. My ad hoc team will begin to get their hands on them next Monday.”

Homosexuality is not strictly illegal in Tanzania. Sodomy, however, carries a sentence of between 30 years and life in prison, while other sexual acts between consenting men also carry jail terms.

Tanzania was seen until recently as more tolerant of homosexuals than neighbouring countries, but the atmosphere has chilled since Mr Magufuli became president in 2015. Last year he announced the closure of AIDS clinics after accusing them of promoting homosexuality.

Mr Makonda, a devout Christian who has long railed against gay Tanzanians, is one of the country’s most powerful figures and is viewed as increasingly untouchable.

Last year he stormed a private television station at the head of a group of armed officers after it declined to broadcast material allegedly incriminating one of his critics in an affair. President Magufuli then sacked the information minister for investigating the raid.

Mr Makonda has also used his role as the government’s chief representative in Dar es Salaam to champion a clampdown on free speech, instructing police to arrest anyone who “insults” political leaders.

Acknowledging the potential for a backlash from the West if homosexuals are detained en masse, Mr Makonda said: “I prefer to anger these countries than to anger God.”

Britain, which will give Tanzania £153m in direct aid this year, is one of Tanzania’s largest bilateral donors.

Canada resort staff were fired for being white - tribunal

A Canadian human rights tribunal says seven resort employees were discriminated against for being white.

The Human Rights Tribunal in the westernmost province of British Columbia awarded them more than C$173,000 ($132,000, £102,000).

Resort owner Kin Wa Chan said he wanted to hire Chinese employees because he believed they were cheaper.

The tribunal found the seven staff were forced out in August 2016, and replaced with Chinese workers.

Tribunal chair Diana Juricevic ruled this qualified as discrimination based on race, which is against British Columbia's human rights code.

She dismissed the complaint of an eighth former employee.

"Over a period of months, Mr Chan repeatedly said that he wanted to replace Caucasian employees with ethnically Chinese employees to reduce labour costs," Ms Juricevic wrote in her decision, published last week.

Mr Chan bought the Spruce Hill Resort and Spa in rural British Columbia in 2015, and began extensive renovations in January the next year.

The resort operated at reduced capacity during the renovations, and so Mr Chan let many of the staff go.

Seven of the employees that were kept on during the renovations ended up filing the human rights complaint, after they were fired the following summer or resigned in the course of several days because of what they described as a hostile work environment.

The largest award, of more than C$62,000, went to Clare Fast, who had worked for the resort for 20 years as fitness and human resources manager. Ms Fast testified she heard Mr Chan say that he would not have to pay Chinese employees overtime.

Her belief that she was fired and replaced with a Chinese employee was corroborated by her colleague and fellow complainant, resort bookkeeper Melonie Eva.

In a diary entry dated 20 July 2016, Ms Eva wrote that "[Mr Chan] keeps saying he wants Chinese people" and "[Ms Stocks] and [Ms Fast] must go".

On 3 August, Mr Chan told Ms Fast her human resources tasks would be given to a new employee, an ethnically Chinese student with no human resources experience. With her hours significantly reduced, Ms Fast asked to be laid off.

Leftist insanity hits David Horowitz

We live in strange times. Since the election of Donald Trump, it has often seemed as if half the country has gone blind or, more likely, lost the ability to see beyond their noses. The divisions that have resulted are so deep they have split us effectively into two nations, damaging and destroying individual relationships at every level. The political left and its media blame Trump for this fracturing of the nation’s fabric, but Trump was first the target of accusations that he was a traitor, colluding with the Russians, a racist and white nationalist betraying the country’s founding principles. And it was the Democrats who launched a “resistance” to his presidency, boycotting his inauguration and demanding his overthrow from day one of his presidency.

During the week when the FBI was searching for the Florida pipe-bomber, the anti-Trump media was busy accusing the president of inciting his violence because he referred to them as “Fake News.” According to the talking heads, chants of “CNN Sucks” at Trump rallies had directly inspired a nutcase loner with a long arrest record who had begun threatening bomb attacks decades before Trump had even entered politics. That same week, I happened to watch an MSNBC panel hosted by Nicole Wallace, where every panelist was comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler. Why? Because Trump had just announced he was a “nationalist” and nationalists, according to the panel, without exception, were authoritarian dictators, like Hitler.

In fact (if anyone at MSNBC can be said to be interested in facts) the term “nationalism” was coined by Joseph Mazzini, who created the modern state of Italy. Far from being a dictator, he was a democrat. Moreover, Hitler was not exactly a nationalist, since Germany was already a powerful state. He was a racist who wanted to create an Aryan empire. But this hardly matters to MSNBC panels whose goal is to demonize the president by any means necessary. That same week CNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell was connecting Trump to Hitler in his own perverse manner. Commenting on Trump’s comment that he was a nationalist, O’Donnell said to his audience: “And we all know what word is associated with nationalism: white.”

Obviously “fake news” is much too kind a description of the openly partisan press corps whose one-time journalists are now pursuing careers as professional character assassins. The same politics of personal destruction is also the staple of many campaigns by Democratic Party candidates. None more so than in the state of Florida, where a full-fledged public lynching of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis is in progress. His opponent, racial demagogue Andrew Gillum, calls every accusation of incompetence and corruption in his tenure as Tallahassee mayor as a “racist attack” because he is black. There could hardly be a more classic example of such demagoguery than this Gillum statement, “Now, I’m not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist. I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist.” [1]

I am one of those “racists” to whom Gillum is referring, perhaps even the primary one. A poor choice, one would think, since I have a public record stretching over 56-years since the publication of my first book, in which I have promoted equal rights for all Americans regardless of race or national origin. I am possibly the only conservative who publicly defended Trayvon Martin during the trial of his killer George Zimmerman. I participated in my first civil rights demonstration for African Americans in 1948, 70 years ago. Since then, I have worked tirelessly on behalf of racial equality, sometimes foolishly as when I was a leftist and raised money for and promoted the Black Panther Party, which turned out to be a criminal gang. Over the last 20 years, I have written three books and several hundred thousand words, all devoted to Martin Luther King’s vision that Americans should judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

Well, I would have been a poor choice in more sober times, rather than our present circumstances where anyone on the right – or anyone who supports President Trump - is fair game for racial slanderers and a press that no longer cares about the facts. Now I find myself treated as a prop in the public lynching of DeSantis.  A Washington Post headline writer described a gathering I host annually in Palm Beach – “The Restoration Weekend,” as a “racially charged event.” De Santis had attended the Weekend four times to give foreign policy speeches. So the logic was – if we were racists, then DeSantis must be.

The absurdity of the Post’s description of our event – for which no credible evidence was produced – would have been obvious to anyone familiar with our event, which we have held since 1994 with no such attacks, or with the list of our featured speakers and award winners who have included such African American leaders as J.C. Watts, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Allen West, Jason Reilly, Charles Payne, Candace Owens, Larry Elder, Sonnie Johnson and even the former Democratic Mayor of Washington D.C., Adrian Fenty.

On the basis of the false Post headline, and equally groundless accusations floating around the leftwing hate-sphere, the gathering DeSantis attended was slandered as an event hosted by “an infamous racist,” a “white supremacist,” a “hate-monger,” and an “anti-Muslim fanatic” (this last despite the fact we featured my good friend, Muslim leader Zuhdi Jasser, specifically to defend Islam in a debate with Robert Spencer). These hateful stigmas appeared in the Huffington Post, GQ, Newsweek, New York Magazine, and virtually every major paper in the state of Florida. I asked the Washington Post to print a correction, or provide me with an op-ed column to set the record straight, but to no avail.

Two weeks before the election, when DeSantis and Gillum squared off in a second televised gubernatorial debate, the moderator turned to DeSantis and the race issue. Pointing out that DeSantis had attended four Restoration Weekends hosted by me, he then claimed I had said, “If blacks are oppressed in America, why isn’t there a black exodus?” This was supposed to be my racist comment. To clinch the case, he quoted a DeSantis statement that he was “a big admirer of an organization (my Freedom Center) that shoots straight, tells the American people the truth and is standing up for the right thing.” Gotcha.

My hat is off to Ron DeSantis for having the courage to defend an organization that is under such malicious attack. But the situation that a malevolent, and dishonest media had created for him was an impossible one. In fact, I have said on many occasions that no one is oppressed in America, which is an obvious truth. Otherwise why are there caravans of “people of color” trying to break into our country illegally? To be oppressed? Over a 200-year period Americans have struggled to make good on the Founders’ promise that everyone is created equal and has equal rights. Americans established constitutional amendments and established laws, crowned by the Civil Rights Acts sixty years ago, which outlawed all discrimination on the basis of race. It’s time to celebrate these victories not wallow in the oppressions of the past that are now illegal. A TV debate, however, is not a venue conducive to history lessons or unpacking complex legal victories for the edification of hostile audiences. DeSantis attempted to defend himself by asking – to the groans of the partisan audience – why he should be familiar with everything I had ever said.

This summary moment in the DeSantis lynching was written up for The Daily Beast by a former friend of mine and now a Never Trumper – Ronald Radosh. His article was presented under this headline: “Association With Extremist David Horowitz Catches Up With Ron DeSantis. In other words, to save the failing racist narrative, Radosh was adding another character assassination -“extremist” - to the implausible “white supremacist.” Radosh did have the decency to write: “I have known David Horowitz for about 50 years. He is not, and never has been, a racist, and has defended himself ably from that charge.”

Unfortunately – and incomprehensibly - Radosh chose to preface that honest character witness with a reckless jibe at DeSantis for asking how he could be held responsible for everything I have said: “Forget about ‘every statement,’” Radosh wrote, “DeSantis could have listened to just about any statement Horowitz has made in the last few years.” In other words, any statement would demonstrate that I am an unhinged extremist. This is what you might call throwing mud at the wall – in this case me – and hoping something will stick.

What inspires Radosh’s reckless attacks on me is that I voted for Trump. Actually, I not only voted for Trump I wrote a book about him and his Democratic adversaries, which Radosh could have mined for extremist statements if they existed. Its title was Big Agenda: Trump’s Plan to Save America.” The book was 11 weeks on the New York Times Best-Seller List, and even received a favorable notice from Huffington Post, whose reviewer pointedly noted, “Horowitz also stresses the importance of offering a new deal to Black America in the inner cities, who have suffered for decades under the rule of the Democrats.” The review concludes: “Horowitz’s book will be an epiphany for those who haven’t been paying attention to the political landscape over the last ten years, but it is common sense for the rest of us.”

But not for Radosh, a Never Trumper who has gone over to the other side of the political divide to join a disgraceful lynch party in its attempt to destroy a decent and good man in Ron DeSantis. For Radosh, the ends now apparently justify the means. Once known as a critic of Joseph McCarthy, Radosh’s hatred of Trump has caused him to join a witch-hunt that dwarfs anything McCarthy ever attempted.

Two years before the Trump election, Radosh sent me a birthday email which provides a measure of what has happened. Radosh and I were close friends and political allies for 65 years, from the time we met in 1951 until 2016, when Trump was elected. This is his summary of what those years meant to him:


From: Ron Radosh
Date: January 10, 2014 at 9:11:18 AM PST
To: David Horowitz

Happy birthday David. I knew it was coming up, but didn't realize it was today. So accept my heartiest wishes for a milestone that I passed a year ago.

You are not only a good friend, but the only one I have who is a national treasure and whose good work serves our country as no one else does.


Apparently, a vote for Trump is enough to throw all that out the window, along with the friendship. Apparently, it also provides a license to distort a man’s work, and attempt to destroy his character and credibility by any means necessary. That is the state not only of my broken friendship with Ron Radosh and the political fate of Ron DeSantis, but also of our nation as we approach the days to come.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

          The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!! -- Game 14: Penguins at Capitals, November 7th      Cache   Translate Page      
The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!!

Wednesday night used to be “Rivalry Night” in the NHL, at least in the world of NBC Sports, but is now just “Wednesday Night Hockey.” For this Wednesday, though, don’t believe it.  It’s Rivalry Night, alright.  The Washington Capitals host the Pittsburgh Penguins in a contest pitting teams with identical records against one another in what will be the 54thregular season meeting in the Alex Ovechkin/Sidney Crosby era.

The Caps will be looking to win consecutive games for the first time this season and boost their regular season record against the Pens in the Ovechkin/Crosby era to 24-21-9.  It has been a bit of a struggle on home ice for the Caps who, after defeating the Edmonton Oilers by a 4-2 margin on Monday night, are 4-1-2 at Capital One Arena.  They face a bold challenge from the Penguins, who are one of only three teams remaining that have not lost a game in regulation time on the road (4-0-2, trailing Nashville and Toronto, both at 6-0-0 after Monday’s games).

For more than a decade, the Penguins have been a forward-dominated, center-centric team featuring the offensive contributions of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and those two have been the top goal scorers and point producers over the last three-plus seasons.  But over that same time, Phil Kessel has held his own as a primary contributor on the offensive side of the ledger.  In his three-plus seasons as a Penguin, Kessel is third in goals (90), trailing only Crosby (115) and Malkin (109), and third in points (237), trailing Crosby (277) and Malkin (248).  Over that period, no other Penguin is within 50 goals or 70 points of Kessel.  Pittsburgh’s “Big Two” is as much a “Top Three.”   Kessel has not let up this season, getting off to a hot start.  His 7-9-16, plus-2 start through 13 games, a shade ahead of last year’s start (4-9-13, minus-1).  Kessel is also among the most durable players in the league.  Coming into this season he appeared in every scheduled regular season game for eight straight seasons and has not missed a regular season game since October 31, 2009, when he was skating in his second season with the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Kessel is 11-21-32, minus-7, in 44 career games against the Capitals.

No one should be surprised that Kris Letang leads the defensemen in scoring for the Pens (4-8-12, plus-6, in 12 games).  Since his 2007-2008 rookie season he is tied for seventh place in points per game by defensemen (0.65).  The surprise so far is that Jamie Oleksiak is tied with Letang for the team lead in goals by defensemen (four) and is second in points (eight).  Part of the surprise is that he is more reminiscent of those massive defensemen who thrived in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, at 255 pounds being heavier than every defenseman in the league except Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien.  The other is that he has not been a regular fixture in any lineup since he made his debut with the Dallas Stars in 2012-2013.  Last season, one he split between Dallas and Pittsburgh (the Stars traded him in December 2017 for a fourth-round draft pick), was the first in which he dressed for more than half a season’s worth of regular season games (68).  In doing so he set a tied a career high in goals (five) and set a personal best in points (17), both numbers he is within range of surpassing.  Oleksiak is 1-0-1, plus-1, in six career games against Washington.

When Marc-Andre Fleury took his leave of Pittsburgh before last season to tend goal for the Vegas Golden Knights, the plan was a seamless transition to Matt Murray, who in his first two seasons was 41-12-5, 2.32, .925, with five shutouts in the regular season and two Stanley Cups on his resume.  Well, you know what the poet Robert Burns said about plans.  Having been given the top goaltending responsibilities, Murray has been an injury-plagued (lower body, concussion), disappointing performer in a season and change (31-20-4, 3.07, .903, with two shutouts).  He also had to deal with the passing of his father, no doubt an influence on his performance.  It has not been an easy time for Murray, who is only in his fourth NHL season and is not yet 25 years old.  He started this season giving mixed signals that his troubles were behind him.  He opened the season with a 4-1-0 record in his first five appearances, but his goals against average (3.37) and save percentage (.910) were not as impressive.  It has only gotten worse.  Murray is 0-3-1 in his last four decisions, while his goals against average ballooned to 4.65, and his save percentage dropped to .839 in those games.  His 3.87 goals against average overall ranks 38th of 42 goalies with at least 250 minutes of ice time, while his save percentage of .886 ranks 35th in that group.  Murray is 5-4-0, 3.93, .875 in nine career appearances against the Caps.


1.  Letang and Oleksiak have those four goals apiece.  The other six defensemen for the Pens have one goal among them (Jack Johnson).

2.  Despite the Penguins’ success on the road (4-0-2), they have struggled with possession numbers.  Only once in six games was their shot attempts-for at 5-on-5 over 50 percent (50.96 percent, a 53-51 edge, in a 6-5 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers on October 23rd).

3.  Pittsburgh allows more shots on goal than one would expect a successful team to allow.  Their 34.1 shots allowed per game is fifth-most in the league, an average topped only by Detroit (34.6), the New York Rangers (34.9), Anaheim Ducks (37.0), and Ottawa Senators (39.1).  Early in the season as it is, none of those teams are among the current playoff eligibles.

4.  Only one team in the league plays within the rules more effectively than the Penguins.  Their 6:50 in penalty minutes per game is lower than every team in the league except the Toronto Maple Leafs (6:30).  The Pens are tied with the Leafs for the fewest penalties taken (43) and fewest minor penalties taken (39).

5.  Scoring first matters to this team, at least so far.  Pittsburgh is 5-0-3 when scoring first, 1-4-0 when they do not.

1.  How close have the Caps played the Penguins in the Ovechkin/Crosby era?  There is the 23-21-9 record.  There is also the 166-164 margin in goals scored and goals allowed, the 1624-1636 difference in shots on goal, the 742-737 difference in penalty minutes, the 1390-1372 margin in credited hits, the 445-443 difference in charged giveaways, the 318-308 margin in credited takeaways, the 10.2 to 10.0 shooting percentage, the 115-110 difference in even strength goals scored.  Yeah, these teams are closely matched.

2.  Evgeny Kuznetsov, Nicklas Backstrom, and John Carlson have 36 assists among them.  Of that total, 19 have come on power plays.

3.  The Caps have had pretty good starts this season.  The good news is that they have only trailed four times in 13 games at the first intermission.  The bad news… they are 0-2-2 in those games.

4.  Ditto on the whole scoring first thing.  The Caps have one loss when scoring first (5-1-0), one win when allowing the first goal (1-3-3).

5.  Evgeny Kuznetsov has six power play goals.  His next one ties a career high, set last season in 79 games.

The Peerless’ Players to Ponder

Pittsburgh: Dominik Simon

For more than three decades, the Penguins have been a team defined by its stars – Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin.  Their success, however, has been more the product of the down-roster players making contributions, players like Bob Errey, Troy Loney, and Phil Bourque in the Lemieux Stanley Cup years, and players like Chris Kunitz, Matt Cullen, and Nick Bonino in the Crosby Cup-winning years.  Which brings us to Dominik Simon.  The 2015 fifth round draft pick from the Czech Republic has had perhaps a more rapid rise to the parent club than most fifth-round picks.  Simon spent two years with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL (and five games with the big club) before he got a longer look last year in Pittsburgh (33 games).  This year, he has been an important contributor in the early going, a scoring line of 3-5-8 (fifth among Penguin forwards in points), plus-5, in 13 games.  He had a five-game points streak stopped in a 5-0 shutout at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday and comes into this game without a point in two straight contests.  He has not gone three straight games without a point so far this season.  Simon has one assist and is minus-2 in two career games against the Caps.

Washington: Brett Connolly

If Nicklas Backstrom is the Washington Capital who has flown under the NHL radar for most of his career, Brett Connolly might be the Cap skater who does so among his own fan base.  Since arriving in Washington in the 2016-2017 season, his 32 goals are sixth-highest on the team, as are his 27 even strength goals.  His 0.21 goals per game is fifth-highest among current Capitals over that two-plus season span.  If he records a point against the Pens, he will become the sixth Capital to reach double digits (unless Lars Eller has two before Connolly gets that point).  He started this season without a goal in his first six games, but he has two in his last seven.  That he has two goals in 13 games is not necessarily cause for alarm.  Connolly had two goals through the Caps’ first 13 games last season (actually, two through his first 17 contests) and two through his first 13 games the previous season (a streak that became two in 15).  He had 15 goals in each of his two seasons with the Caps coming into this year, so he would seem a decent bet to approach that number this time around.  Connolly is 3-2-5, minus-1, in 18 career games against Pittsburgh.

In the end…

If there is a new wrinkle in this series, it is in how different the games in Pittsburgh and Washington have played out recently.  In the last four games in Pittsburgh, the teams combined for 43 goals, the Pens holding a 23-20 edge.  In Washington, the last four games were played to a total of 27 goals, the Caps having an 18-7 edge.  It argues for a more close-to-the-vest sort of game on Wednesday, although in this context, that is a relative thing.  The fault line on this game might rest on the Capitals having a top notch scoring offense and power play, while the Pens have allowed five or more goals in three of their last four contests.

Capitals 5 – Penguins 3

          The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!! -- Game 13: Oilers at Capitals, November 5th      Cache   Translate Page      
The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!!

November got off to a rough start for the Washington Capitals with an overtime loss to the Dallas Stars to start a four-game home stand after coming back from down a goal in the third period.  The Caps get to turn things around on Monday night, though, when they host the Edmonton Oilers in a rematch of teams who last faced one another on October 25th, a 4-1 Oiler win in Edmonton.

The Caps are 1-1-1 since that meeting, a record entirely in line with their meandering journey among wins and losses to start the season.  On the other hand, the Oilers go into this contest 4-1-0 since that meeting, three of those wins coming on the road in three tries.

As you might expect, Connor McDavid has figured prominently in the Oiler scoring since these teams last met.  He has points in all five games since Edmonton defeated Washington (3-4-7, plus-5), and he has points in 12 of the 13 games in which he played so far this season.  Only Nashville held him off the score sheet in a 3-0 win over the Oilers on October 20th.  McDavid plays for a club renowned over its history for its offensive firepower, but already he is closing in on, if not in the top-20 in franchise history in a number of offensive categories, despite this being only his fourth season in the NHL:
  • Goals: 96/22nd
  • Assists: 181/18th
  • Points: 277/21st
  • Even-strength goals: 79/21st
  • Power play assists: 54/T-20th
  • Power play points: 69/22nd
  • Game-winning goals: 20/14th
  • Overtime goals: 5/T-2nd
  • Points per game: 1.25/4th
Keep in mind, McDavid is not yet 22 years old, and his 222 games played ranks 68th in club history. 

Drake Caggiula was undrafted, played junior hockey with the Stouffville Spirit of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, and then spent four years with the University of North Dakota in the NCAA.  After his four-year tour with UND in which he scored 62 goals in 162 games, Caggiula signed a two-year entry level contract with the Oilers in May 2016.  After two seasons in which he posted 20 goals and 38 points in 127 games, he was signed to a two-year extension by the Oilers last June.  He responded with five goals in nine games so far this season, all of them coming in his last five contests, including a pair of two-goal efforts, one in a 5-3 win over Nashville on October 27th, the other in a 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks last Thursday.  Caggiula has not yet recorded a point against the Caps in three career games played against them.

Once upon a time, Milan Lucic was going to be the next big thing among NHL power forwards.  Over a five-season span with the Boston Bruins from 2010-2011 through 2014-2015, Lucic potted 105 goals in 367 games, an average of more than 23 goals per 82 games.  Paired with his physical edge (1006 credited hits, 503 penalty minutes), he was earning a reputation for being a player to be feared when on the ice.  Then, he headed west to the Los Angeles Kings in a trade for Martin Jones, Colin Miller, and the Kings’ first round pick of the 2015 entry draft.  He had a productive season in Los Angeles (20-35-55) before heading to Edmonton as a free agent.  His first season there, in 2016-2017, he topped his previous season in goal scoring (23) and posted his fifth career 50-point season (50).  Last year, however, his goal total plummeted (to 10), and he finished with only 34 points, his lowest total of any season in which he appeared in more than 50 games since he had 27 points in 77 games in his rookie season in Boston.  He has not given any signs of coming out of that slump so far.  Lucic is 1-3-4, minus-6 (team worst), in 13 games.  In 34 career games against the Caps, Lucic is 7-14-21, minus-6.


1.  Since the league instituted the Gimmick, only four teams have more trick shot wins than the Oilers (70) – New York Islanders (75), Pittsburgh Penguins (75), New York Rangers (74) and New Jersey Devils (71).  Wonder what it is with the New York area teams.

2.  Nine teams went into Week 6 with eight or more wins in regulation and overtime.  The Oilers are one of them (eight).  Trouble for them is that six of the eight teams in that group play in the Western Conference.

3.  The Oilers’ penalty kill is something of which the Caps might take advantage.  At 70.8 percent, their road penalty kill is fifth-worst in the league.

4.  Edmonton does a very good job of playing within the rules.  Their 48 penalties taken so far is tied for the fourth-fewest in the league.  Only Vegas (45), Toronto (43) and Pittsburgh (38) have taken fewer.

5.  The Oilers can be sloppy with the puck.  They have been charged with 163 giveaways so far, fourth-most in the league.

1.  No team has scored more power play goals on home ice than the Caps (11), and their 47.8 percent conversion rate on home ice tops the league, almost eight points ahead of their closest pursuer (Winnipeg at 40.9 percent).

2.  Only five teams have fewer penalty minutes taken than the Caps (106).

3.  The 158 blocked shots recorded by the Caps are 30th in the league, only ten more than the bottom-ranked Florida Panthers, whose 148 blocked shots were recorded in one fewer game than Washington.

4.  If the volume of faceoffs is an indicator of game flow, things have flowed rather well in Caps games.  Their total of 734 draws taken is fourth-fewest in the league.

5.  Trailing after one period continues to matter for the Caps.  They are winless in four such instances this season (0-2-2).

The Peerless’ Players to Ponder

Edmonton: Alex Chiasson

As a member of the Washington Capitals last season, Alex Chiasson played a support role, posting nine goals and 18 points in 61 regular season games, one goal and two points in 16 postseason games as the Caps marched to a championship.  It was a decent season, quite in line with his previous four full seasons in the league in which he scored 44 goals and posted 99 points in 313 games (nine goals and 19 points per 61 games).  Then he signed a one-year/$650,000 contract with the Oilers on October 2nd.  That contract has to be one of the most cost-effective in the early going this season.  Chiasson has six goals, third-most on the club, while having appeared in only eight of the Oilers’ 13 games played.  His 46.2 shooting percentage (six goals on 13 shots) is tops in the league among the 514 skaters with ten or more shots on goal this season.  His plus-7 in eight games is tied for third-best on the club, and he has yet to take a penalty.  He is one of eight players in the league having appeared in at least eight games with at least six goals, playing at least 12 minutes per game with no penalty minutes recorded.  It might be sustainable, but it feels good while it lasts.  Chiasson is 2-4-6, plus-5, in nine career games against the Caps.

Washington: Alex Ovechkin

Since he came into the league, Alex Ovechkin has 617 goals, 200 more than the second-place skater on that list (Sidney Crosby has 417).  Of that total, 313 goals were scored on home ice, a total that would tie him with Ilya Kovalchuk for 18thplace on the total goals scored list.  With two more goals, Ovechkin will have tied Jarome Iginla for the most total goals scored on home ice over the last 20 seasons, and if he does it against Edmonton, he will have done it in 229 fewer home games (510) than did Iginla (739).  When Ovechkin went without a goal in the Caps’ 4-3 overtime loss to Dallas, it was the first time this season that Ovechkin went consecutive home games without a goal.  One thing that has been consistent in Ovechkin’s game is success with high shot volumes.  His 47 shots on goal ranks an uncharacteristically low 17th (tied with Claude Giroux and Johnny Gaudreau), but the Caps have not yet lost when he had five or more shots in a game this season (4-0-0).  On the other hand, the Caps are 1-4-3 when he had fewer than five shots on goal.  Ovechkin is 10-10-20, plus-2, in 17 games against Edmonton.

In the end…

The Caps are closing in on having played 20 percent of their schedule, and they have yet to establish much consistency or rhythm to their game.  Their defensive efforts have been spotty, their goaltending uneven, and their special teams tilted far to the power play side of success.  As they head into the second of a five-game home stand, the Caps still have an opportunity to take advantage of home ice to jump a couple of rungs on the standings ladder, but they will have to sustain a higher level of effort in all three zones and at every position to make that objective come through.

Capitals 4 – Oilers 2


          Washington Capitals: That Was The Week That Was - Week 5      Cache   Translate Page      
It was a long time coming, but it was bound to happen sooner of later.  The Washington Capitals were winless for Week 5 and find themselves stuck in fifth place in the Metropolitan Division and tenth in the Eastern Conference.  It has not been a disastrous start, but it is not the start Capitals Nation hoped for, either.


Record: 0-1-1

It was a light week of work for the Caps, who have had to deal with a quirky schedule in which they didn’t start their week’s work before Wednesday for the fourth time in five weeks.  And, it was their third week in five in which they took the ice only twice.  The takeaway in terms of record is that the winless week for the Caps was their first since Week 16 of last season in which they went 0-1-1, dropping a 4-3 overtime decision to the Nashville Predators and a 3-2 decision to the Montreal Canadiens.

That the Caps lost to Montreal in Week 5 at Bell Centre was perhaps as clear an indicator that things are not quite right with the team so far.  The Caps took a 13-0-2 record in their previous 15 games at Bell Centre into this week’s game and spit the bit in the third period, turning a 4-3 advantage into a 6-4 loss, including allowing goals two seconds apart in the last minute (the latter an empty netter), a record for shortest time between two goals in NHL history.

The Caps are now 12 games into the season, and they have yet to post wins in consecutive games.  No team can win a Stanley Cup in November, but they can lose one.  Falling behind too much, too early, means there are just so many teams to climb over as the season moves along.  That the Caps are only two points clear of the division’s last place team (New York Rangers) should be cause for concern.


Offense: 3.50/game (season: 3.75/game, rank: T-1st)

In any other week, scoring three and a half goals per game would look good.  Unfortunately, the Caps could not score often enough to overcome deficiencies in other areas (more on that below).  The Caps had decent balance among the scorers, five players splitting the seven goals scored (Lars Eller and Alex Ovechkin each had a pair).  Fourteen skaters recorded points, Eller leading them with three points.

If there was an odd part of the offense on an individual level, it was that the Caps had three defensemen record points in Week 5, none of them being John Carlson.  He averaged more than 25 minutes in the two games, but he had only three shots on goal and finished a minus-5 for the week.  Getting Michal Kempny and Dmitry Orlov in the scoring (each with an assist to double their season points total) was a welcome turn.

Defense: 5.00/game (season: 3.83/game, rank: 28th)

Only five teams allowed fewer shots for the week than the Caps, but hold off on that “stingy defense” notion.  The Caps allowed 81 shots on goal in two games; they allowed 100 shot attempts at 5-on-5 for the two games.  These are not good numbers.  The 63 5-on-5 shot attempts the Caps allowed the Canadiens in the first game of the week were the most allowed to any opponent so far.  They improved in this regard against Dallas, allowing only 37 shot attempts at fives in the second game of the week (third-fewest through 12 games), but that was indicative of the inconsistency that has plagued the team through the first dozen games.

Goaltending: 4.38 / .888 (season: 3.61 / .887 / 1 SO)

It was Braden Holtby’s week, and it was not one for the scrapbooks.  The defense in front of him did not help much, but it was a return to a week without reaching the .900 save percentage mark.  Holtby has been a goaltender that thrived on heavy shot volumes over his career, but 80 shots over two-plus games was an extraordinarily high volume.  It started with the Canadiens raining 19 shots on his net in the first period of the first game of the week, and it ended with Dallas recording seven shots in just over three minutes of overtime before pinning the overtime loss on Holtby.  In between it was a case of an odd pattern of shots faced.  Holtby faced 30 first period shots and 26 third period shots for the week, but he took on only 17 shots in the second periods of the two games in Week 5.  Still, the results were disappointing.  At week’s end, Holtby ranked 35th of 41 goaltenders in goals against average (3.62; minimum: 250 minutes played) and 34th in save percentage (.888).  Curiously, it is a familiar neighborhood in the goalie rankings.  Compare his numbers to those of former netmate Philipp Grubauer (3.56, .893) and Pittsburgh’s Matt Murray (3.68, .890), and there are enough goalie troubles to go around among familiar faces.

Power Play:  1-for-4/25.0 percent (season: 35.9 percent, rank: 1st)

For the fifth consecutive week the Caps finished the week with a power play efficiency rate of 25 percent or better.  That is the good news.  The bad news is the small volume of chances, only four for the two games of the week.  The Caps finished the week having enjoyed the fifth-fewest number of power play chances in the league.  That they have the second-most power play goals (14, one behind St. Louis) is testament to the effectiveness of their power play.

What they did not get in Week 5 was so much as a single power play shot on goal against Montreal in the first game of the week.  And, they had only one chance with the man advantage.  It was the second time this season that the Caps were held to a single power play opportunity and their second loss in such instances.  Washington had one power play chance, without converting, in a 4-1 loss to Edmonton on October 25th.

That the Caps recorded a power play goal and earned at least a standings point against Dallas is not unusual.  It brought the Caps’ record to 5-1-2 in games in which they scored a power play goal.  Still, four shots on goal in 7:18 of power play time is a quiet week on this front.


Penalty Killing: 4-for-4 / 100.0 percent (season:  75.0 percent, rank: 23rd)

Here is perhaps the most bizarre week-to-week fact coming out of Week 5.  The Caps have had two weeks in five in which their penalty killing was 80 percent are better, and those are the two losing weeks that the Caps have had so far.  Washington killed eight of ten shorthanded situations in Week 2 and went 1-2-0.  In Week 5 they killed all four of their shorthanded situations and went 0-1-1.  They did a fine job in suppressing shots while down a man, allowing the Canadiens only two shots on goal on two power plays and Dallas only one shot on goal on two power plays.


Faceoffs: 67-for-117 / 57.3% percent (season: 48.6 percent, rank: 24th)

If the Caps did one thing well in Week 5, it was take faceoffs.  And here might be evidence of how inconsequential such results are, but with a caveat.  Washington did a fine job in the offensive zone, winning 23 of 33 draws for the week (69.7 percent).  But two things about defensive zone draws were noteworthy.  First, they took 43 defensive zone draws for the week, ten more than they took in the offensive zone.  Second, they won only 21 of them (48.8 percent).

Three of the four skaters taking at least ten draws for the week finished over 50 percent – Nicklas Backstrom (63.9 percent), Lars Eller (61.5 percent) and Evgeny Kuznetsov (51.7 percent).  Only Nic Dowd among that group was under 50 percent(43.8).  All four were worse in the defensive end than they were in the offensive end, the Caps enjoying first possession on a regular basis in the offensive end, but having to go seeking the puck too often in the defensive end.


Goals by Period:


Well, the Caps were consistent, just not in a way they would like to carry forward.  Three goals allowed in each of the first, second, and third periods of games for the week was a recipe for poor results.  It is part of a consistency that has plagued the Caps all season.  Through five weeks the Caps have allowed 15 first period goals, 14 second period goals, and 15 third period goals.

On the other side, the Caps had a fine week in the period with the long change, posting five goals in the second periods of two games.  However, one goal in each of the first and third periods of games was indicative of slow starts and weak finishes, although that lone third period goal (a power play goal by Evgeny Kuznetsov) did allow the Caps to record a standings point against Dallas.

Year over Year:


Yes, the Caps do have a better record, year-over-year, through 12 games.  Yes, they score more (almost 30 percent more goals scored).  They are closer to 50 percent in shot attempts-for percentage than they were through 12 games last season.  More takeaways, fewer penalties.  The power play is much better than it was at a similar juncture last season, and while the penalty kill hasn’t improved, it is having to endure those situations at a lower frequency. 

By most measure, the Caps are in a better place after 12 games this season than they were after 12 games last season, but it feels strangely inadequate.  That is one price to pay for winning a championship.

In the end…

The Caps are 12 games in, and they haven’t won consecutive games.  That is the bottom line of what has been an inconsistent level of production among a number of statistical categories, even if on balance those numbers are better than last season through as many games.  The defense and goaltending have been especially troublesome, largely negating a good offense overall and a powerful power play.  The good news here is that defense is largely a product of effort applied to scheme, and that is something that can be corrected.  That, however, will require a level of sustained focus that has eluded the team so far.  Perhaps with a more regular diet of games in November, without the long stretches of time between games they worked through in October, that focus will be easier to sustain.  It had better be.

Three Stars:
  • First Star: Lars Eller (2-1-3, 61.5 faceoff wins, 52.63% shot attempts-for on ice at 5-on-5)
  • Second Star: Alex Ovechkin (2-0-2, 8 shots on goal, 20 shot attempts)
  • Third Star: Nicklas Backstrom (1-1-2, even, 63.9 percent faceoff wins, six shots on goal)


          The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!! -- Game 12: Stars at Capitals, November 3rd      Cache   Translate Page      
The Peerless Prognosticator is ON THE AIR!!!

If it seems like weeks since the Washington Capitals last played at Capital One Arena, it has been.  Two weeks, in fact, since the Caps dropped a 6-5 Gimmick decision to the Florida Panthers.  The Caps return home on Saturday night to face the Dallas Stars after splitting a four-game road swing through Canada (2-2-0).

Washington will take the ice on Saturday hoping to find some epoxy or sealant to plug the holes in what has been a leaky defense so far.  Despite splitting the four decisions on the road over the last couple of weeks, the Caps allowed 15 goals in the four games, the 3.75 goals allowed per game being only marginally better than the 3.82 goals allowed per game overall over their first 11 contests of the season.

Opening a five-game home stand against the Stars might not be the worst way to get back on track.  The Stars have been a streaky team in the early going, opening the season winning three of four games, before dropping three in a row.  They have won four of five games going into this contest, 2-1-0 on their current road trip.

“Streaky” might be a word to describe their offense, too.  After scoring 17 goals in their first four games of the season (4.25 per game), Dallas has 19 goals in their last eight games (2.38 per game).  It is balanced scoring overall, though, both in the lineup (16 players have scored goals) and at the top of the scoring list.  Three Stars are tied for the team lead in goals with five apiece, and frankly, there are no surprises among them.

Jamie Benn, for example (five goals in 12 games), topped the 30-goalmark in four of his last five seasons.  Since posting 34 goals in the 2013-2014 season, Benn has more goals scored (177) than any player in the league except Alex Ovechkin (246) and Sidney Crosby (179).  Now in his tenth NHL season, he is sixth on the all-time franchise list in goals scored (259) and would seem to be a virtual lock to climb into fourth place (Neal Broten: 274) by year’s end.  Of his five goals this season, three were recorded on power plays; he had ten or more power play goals in three of the last four seasons, coming up one shot last season.  Despite being drafted in the fifth round (129th overall) in the 2007 entry draft, Benn is the second-ranked goal scorer in his draft class, trailing only Chicago’s Patrick Kane (323), although Benn has played in almost 160 fewer games (679 to 835 for Kane).  Benn is 6-8-14, plus-13, in 13 career games against Washington.

Alexander Radulov isn’t much of a surprise at the top of the Dallas goal-scoring list, either.  Although his NHL career has been beset by interruptions (2008-2009 through 2010-2011 with Salavat Yulayev Ufa in the KHL and 2012-2013 through 2016-2017 with CSKA Moskva in the KHL), he has been a productive goal scorer, averaging 24.9 goals per 82 games.  He is shooting at a torrid pace, his five goals coming on only 18 shots (27.8 percent) in seven games (he missed four games in late October to lower body injury before returning against Montreal on October 20th; he missed Dallas 2-1 loss in Toronto to the Maple Leafs on Thursday).  In six career games against Washington, Radulov is 3-3-6, minus-2.  He is also listed as day-to-day after aggravating his lower body injury.

John Klingberg is the third member of the Stars with five goals and is one of a handful of defensemen averaging at least a point per game so far this season (5-7-12 in 12 games).  In his fifth NHL season, he has demonstrated himself to be one of the most prolific offensive defensemen in the game.  Over that span he ranks 14th in goals scored (47), fourth in assists (179), and third in points (226).  With his production, his ice time has increased steadily, from 21:50 per game as a rookie in 2014-2015 to 25:10 in 12 games so far this season.  The odd part of his season to date is that four of his five goals scored came in the Stars’ first five games, while five of his seven assists have come in his last seven contests.  An odd feature of his scoring over his five-year career is his alternating high shooting percentage years (11.2 percent, 10.5 percent, and 15.6 percent this season in his first, third, and fifth seasons) with low percentage years (5.8 percent and 3.9 percent in his second and fourth season).  Klingberg is 0-8-8, plus-1, in seven career games against the Caps.


1.  Dallas is a great power play team at home (35.0 percent). On the road?  Not so much.  They are limping along at 12.5 percent, 26th in the league, and only two teams have had fewer man advantage chances on the road than Dallas (36) – Arizona and Pittsburgh (31 apiece).

2.  The Stars are one of six teams left that have not allowed a shorthanded goal. Oddly enough, five of those teams play in the West (the New York Islanders being the exception).

3.  Getting power play time in the third period is a comparatively rare occurrence, but Dallas has spent only 14:18 with the man advantage in the final 20 minutes this season. Only the Islanders have spent less (11:33).

4.  Only the Nashville Predators have more wins when scoring first this season (eight) than the Stars (six, tied with the Islanders and the San Jose Sharks).

5.  Dallas has only eight first period goals so far this season. Only Vegas (seven) and Los Angeles (5) have fewer.

1.  Washington has nine third period goals this season. Only Los Angeles and Florida (eight apiece) have fewer.

2.  The Caps could do without the bench penalties. The three they have is exceeded by only three teams – Colorado (four), Minnesota (four), and the New York Rangers (five).

3.  The Caps have played one-goal games right down the middle; they are 2-2-2 so far. Their other three wins were by three or more goals.

4.  Nicklas Backstrom has eight power play point, a total exceeded only by Taylor Hall and Blake Wheeler (nine apiece).

5.  Quality...Quantity…Quality…Quantity. The Caps rank 26th in the league in shot attempts at 5-on-5 (487, tied with Minnesota).

The Peerless’ Players to Ponder

Dallas: Tyler Seguin

Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Erik Karlsson.  There are a lot of star-caliber players in the NHL, but few are as productive over as big a range of statistical categories as Tyler Seguin since he moved to Dallas from Boston in a trade with Rich Peverley and Ryan Button for Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser.  Since his first season in Dallas, in 2013-2014, Seguin’s rankings are impressive:
  • Goals: 176/4th
  • Points: 398/6th
  • Game-winning goals: 30/T-7th
  • Shots on goal: 1,548/2nd
  • Goals per game: 0.44/8th
  • Points per game: 1.00/5th
He just doesn’t seem to get the attention such numbers might deserve.  When he takes the ice against the Caps, it will be his 400th game with the Stars, the 38th player to reach that milestone in franchise history.  His numbers this season (3-11-14, plus-5, in 12 games) are in keeping with his productive nature in Dallas generally, but his three goals on 60 shots so far (5.0 percent) is the worst shooting percentage of his career.  His season to date has also been a bit inconsistent.  He torched Winnipeg, Toronto, and Anaheim for three goals and ten points in a three-game stretch early in the season, but he is without a goal in his last nine games and is 0-4-4 in his last eight contests.  He has yet to score a goal on the road this season.  In 21 career appearances against Washington, Seguin is 9-5-14, plus-4.

Washington: Matt Niskanen

Matt Niskanen does not have the booming shot or responsibility to tee up Alex Ovechkin one-timers like John Carlson.  He doesn’t have quite the physical edge of a Brooks Orpik.  He just gets the job done, night in and night out.  He has been a reliable point producer from the blue line, ranging between 29 and 39 points over his four seasons in Washington preceding this one, that lower end of the range being a product of his missing 14 games last season.  Over those four seasons he led the team in games played by a defenseman (310), was second in assists (110 to 155 for Carlson), was second in points (131 to 199 for Carlson), and was a team-best plus-61, regardless of position.  He goes into Saturday’s game against the team that drafted him (28th overall in 2005) with a good start to this season (2-5-7 in 11 games).  He has points in four of five home games to date.  Coincidentally, those are the four games on home ice in which the Caps have earned points so far (3-0-1).  He is also a minutes-eater, only once in 11 games skating under 20 minutes.  In 12 career games against Dallas, Niskanen is 1-5-6, minus-2.

In the end…

The Caps have been a hot mess in their own end over the first month of the season.  They allow too many goals (3.82 per game, fourth-most in the league), their penalty kill is iffy (73.8 percent, 24th in the league), and they are still underwater in shot attempts-for at 5-on-5 (48.46 percent).  Their offense has kept them competitive, but a 3.82 goals per game scoring offense and a 36.1 percent power play are not likely to be sustainable over an 82-game season.  This is a club that certainly has the appearance of having lingering effects from the championship season (and off-season), but that is what November is for, to get back to business.  And there is no better place to start than with some home cooking.

Jewish leaders reflect on the recent attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue

Anti-Semitism isn't new to Rabbi Dovid Asher. He recalls visiting an amusement park as a young teenager and locking eyes with a stranger who took in his yarmulke and flipped him a swift, demonstrative middle finger. The experience was shocking and traumatic, he says, but stories passed down in his family were more impactful.

His grandmother made it out of Nazi Germany right before Kristallnacht in 1938. Tickets for passage to America were limited, and Asher says his grandmother always felt responsible for the death of her younger sister, who later died in Auschwitz.

"Just hearing my grandmother's stories, seeing the pain she was going through and thinking of her sister's murder in Auschwitz, that's all I ever needed in terms of understanding the evil of anti-semitism," Asher says. "I think she'd be beside herself, seeing how anti-Semitism has kind of risen again, when not so long ago it terrorized the Jewish community worldwide."

Like religious leaders across the country, Asher has spent the last week reflecting on the Oct. 27 shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead and several more injured. He was one of several Jewish clergy at a vigil in Richmond three days after the shooting, which more than 1,000 people attended. Asher, who grew up in Pennsylvania and came to Richmond in 2011 to lead the congregation at Keneseth Beth Israel, is careful and intentional with his words. He's hesitant to politicize the attack and its aftermath, partially in recognition of shiva, the week-long period of mourning in Jewish culture. During those first seven days, it's customary for observant Jews to sit with their grief and allow themselves to experience the pain in its entirety.

"I think we need to celebrate the lives and to appreciate the pain of the families," Asher says. "I think we need to wait a little bit before we publicly come out and have this conversation." That said, Asher is "terribly concerned about the polarization of this country" and wants to see more unification efforts from elected officials.

Rabbi Michael Knopf of Temple Beth-El, who was named one of Style Weekly's Top 40 Under 40 in 2017, echoes that sentiment, and is more forthcoming on the political front. Like his colleague across town, he's mindful that his congregation represents both ends of the political spectrum and his job is not one of a pundit. But mixed in with sadness and grief following the shooting is also anger and frustration with a climate that he says has emboldened people with hateful ideologies.

"It's really hard for me to separate what happened in Pittsburgh from what happened in Charlottesville last summer," Knopf explains. "In particular what happened when the president responded the way he did. White supremacists in this country had never had a bigger gift and endorsement than that."

That gift, he says, has long-lasting ramifications. The president's rhetoric around immigrants has normalized bigotry and white nationalism, he says, and it's no coincidence that the shooting happened days after known foes of the president received suspicious packages in the mail, or during a time of charged rhetoric around a group of immigrants heading toward the southern border. It's about more than discrimination against people of the Jewish faith, he says.

"It's all interconnected, and it stems from a really ugly campaign of vilifying anyone who could be perceived as other," he says. "We need to stand up for all targeted communities."

Safety is a priority for both rabbis, and there's frustration around the reality that they have to balance keeping their congregants safe without negatively impacting the quality of their work and services.

"We need to be vigilant of our security, but at the same time I want my congregation to be able to be open and welcoming to anybody who wants to experience the joy and beauty of Judaism with us," Knopf says. "It's harder to do that when you have to have an armed guard outside the door."

Both Knopf and Asher note that armed security guards are on the premises during services at their synagogues.

"What that means is we're effectively letting violent anti-Semites rob us of our ability to serve our community in other ways because we have to use those resources to pay for security," Knopf says.

Jewish Family Services' chief operating officer, Sydney Fleischer, says she feels safe as a Jew in Richmond, and it's important to prioritize security and have these discussions while still moving forward. She describes feeling lost and helpless on the day of the shooting.

"It's just stunning, and at first you feel like, 'How can I possibly do anything,'" she says. "Then you realize that any little thing you do matters. One of the Jewish values is that if you save one person you save the world."

As a clinical social worker, Fleischer advises people to talk through whatever they're feeling after a traumatic event, especially parents. It's not easy to tell a child of any age that hatred exists, she says, and a parent may never be able to adequately explain why someone may hate another person who's Jewish. That's why it's crucial to have open discussions and to "highlight the positive," leading by example and teaching diversity and inclusivity from a young age.

For more resources, Fleischer suggests checking out the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies at networkjhsa.org. Templates are available for writing letters to the bereaved in Pittsburgh, along with links to organizations accepting donations on behalf of the community. S

          Photo Flash: Pittsburgh Opera Continues 80th Season With HANSEL & GRETEL      Cache   Translate Page      

Pittsburgh Opera continues our 80th season with Englebert Humperdinck's Hansel & Gretel.

Based on the classic fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, Hansel & Gretel is a fantastical story of a young brother and sister who must navigate an enchanted forest full of twists, turns, and one wicked witch.

Siblings Hansel and Gretel are poor peasants whose mother sends them to forage for strawberries in a haunted forest. They get lost and spend the night in the woods. The next morning, they stumble upon a gingerbread house inhabited by a witch, played by Pittsburgh favorite Marianne Cornetti, who imprisons them. It will take all their wits to escape before she eats them!

Since its premiere in 1893, this beloved opera has delighted millions. With Humperdinck's sweeping score, this whimsical operatic confection is sure to please both adults and children.

Originally written in German, Pittsburgh Opera will be performing it in English. Antony Walker conducts and Mt. Lebanon native Crystal Manich directs.

On stage November 3, 6, 9, & 11, Hansel & Gretel makes an equally good date night, girls' night out, and family outing. Adult tickets start at just $14 - children's tickets for those ages 6-18 are half-price, and start at just $7. Season, group, and single tickets are now on sale and available online.

In addition, Pittsburgh Opera's annual Student Matinee will introduce 2,500+ school children grades 3-12 to this lively, colorful opera on Thursday, Nov. 8th at the Benedum Center. Pittsburgh Opera's Resident Artists take lead roles in the Student Matinee, and are accompanied by the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra. Tickets are $10, and are reserved through Pittsburgh Opera's Education Department. For more information, please contact Marilyn Michalka Egan, Ph.D., Director of Education, at 412-281-0912, ext. 242.

          Jews vs. Jews, Who Needs Anti-Semites? What the Pittsburgh Killings Uncovered      Cache   Translate Page      

Aftershocks from Pittsburgh’s synagogue massacre have surfaced fissures and faults that riddle Jews in the US, in Israel, and between. Deep ideological divisions over who is responsible for American anti-Semitism and how to tackle the problem reveal the crumbling foundation beneath worldwide Jewry. At the same time, the cosy, secure feeling that existential threats toward Jews do not happen in America has shattered. Commonsense dictates that our footing must be restored because anti-Semitic storm clouds gather on the horizon and our survival as a people is at stake.

          ELECTION DAY! Wonkagenda For Tues., Nov. 6, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      


Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


Dear Crom, it's Election Day and we've been chugging coffee since 3:00 AM! The New York Times has a good infographic on when polls open and close, as well as some of the most important races to watch. The National Weather Service is warning people in the Midwest and the Southern East Coast to prepare for nasty storms, so plan accordingly! Crappy weather historically depresses voter turnout, so grab your coat and your wellies, carpool with your neighbors and roommates, or just take the damn bus! Get your ass to the polls!

Trump's bolted around the country to scare the piss out of his base of elderly and/or non-college educated white people. In a last ditch effort to grab women voters by the pussy, Trump brought in Ivanka, Kellyanne Conway, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders to talk about being moms and hopefully close his gigantic gender gap. This could be a problem as Trump's been calling "the accuser" of Justice Rapey McPrivilege a goddamn liar, adding that the accusations against Justice Privileges were a "fake" and a "scam." Real classy!

In an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting, Trump acknowledged that he's been a complete asshole, but then he went and did a rally with Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, and Rush Limbaugh to complain about the Mexican Muslim taco truck invasion, and lie through his teeth Democratic candidates.

Here's a nice photo essay about what the last few days of campaigning has looked like across the country.

The Trump administration wants SCOTUS to decide whether or not Trump has to give DACA kids a slice of the American Dream, filing three petitions from three appeals courts that seek rulings on whether or not federal courts have jurisdiction in allowing taco trucks on every corner.

SCOTUS has declined to hear a challenge by the Trump administration to overturn a lower court ruling that upheld Obama-era net neutrality rules. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Rapey McPrivilege had to recuse themselves, leaving only Justices Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch to bitch and moan into the ethernet cables. The decision is a minor win for us proles, but a crucial step towards saving the interwebs from the clutches of Ma Bell.

FCC Chairman and piece of shit Ajit Pai wants telecom companies to stop all those obnoxious spoofed robocalls. In May, Pai took the unusual step of demanding his corporate overlords develop a system to authenticate phone calls, but Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel says we could be doing even more by mandating telecoms put a system in place by 2019, like Canada.

A federal judge in North Carolina says the Interior Department doesn't have the authority to lift a ban on killing endangered red wolves just because a couple of rednecks got pissy and started a slaughter lobby. The judge put the US Fish and Wildlife Service on blast by reminding the service of its own statement, "Wildlife are not the property of landowners but belong to the public and are managed by state and federal governments for the public good."

Gabe Sherman gossips that Trump's minions are really worried Robert Mueller has a target on DJTJ. At Hope Hicks's 30th birthday (sans Rob Porter -- GOOD!), numerous Trumps fondly recalled the "the old times," and wondered what the hell happened to Rudy Giuliani. Over on Pennsylvania Ave., Trump's minions are scrambling to figure how to deal with a Democratic House that's ready to start launching investigations on Day One.

US Border Patrol has decided that Election Day is the best day for a crowd control exercise in El Paso, Texas -- the homebase of Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke -- right by the polling place in the heavily Hispanic Chihuahuita neighborhood. This must be what Ted Cruz got in exchange for giving Trump a rimjob.

Assuming Democrats can take control of the House, the fight for leadership could come down to the Congressional Black Caucus. Candidates might rail about supporting Nancy Pelosi on the campaign trail, but congressional insiders are bracing for a cloakroom slobberknocker between Rep. Hakeem Jeffries and Rep. Jim Clyburn.

It's looking like Georgia's gubernatorial race may come down to a runoff between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp. If no candidate gets more than 50 percent tonight, candidates have to spend MORE money to convince voters to drag their asses back to the polls on December 5th and vote again after the Independent spoiler is booted off the ballot.

Illinois senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin are calling on the state's public health director Nirav Shah to resign following revelations that the administration of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner attempted to hide a 2015 outbreak of Legionnaires' disease at veterans homes. According to records obtained by Chicago NPR affiliate WBEZ, top Rauner aides withheld vital information about the extent of the health crisis from the media and state lawmakers so as to minimize bad press and obfuscate the deaths.

Iowa Republican Rep and white supremacist Steve King is doubling down on his anti-gay and pro-Nazi bullshit, criticizing the NRCC for supporting a gay candidate in California -- even though there are no gay Republican candidates running in California! Last night King was caught hanging out with the one of the writers of Nazi blog, American Renaissance.

Maine's jerkoff Republican Gov. Paul LePage says he's "done with politics" and is moving to Florida "for tax reasons." He says he may get a job teaching for a university, and that he doesn't plan on paying any income tax.

Fun Fact: Maine will be the first state to use ranked-choice voting for its House and Senate races this year! Nerdy political scientists think it's a way we could help rebalance our elections so they're actually more democratic. San Francisco used ranked-choice earlier this year, and it (eventually) turned out all right. [RadioLab Podcast] [Vox 'Splainer]

Iran is claiming the Israelis have created a new version of the Stuxnet malware that was trying to "harm the country's communication infrastructures." The original Stuxnet, created during the Bush 43 administration, shut down Iran's uranium enrichment program.

The US involvement in the JCPOA is dead after the Trump administration officially imposed the "toughest ever" sanctions on Iran -- though it did grant waivers to China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey to continue buying oil from Teheran, a move the Iranians called "a great victory." In a televised address, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the US is acting unfairly, and that Iran "will probably break the sanctions."

Nazi Twitter-clone "Gab" is back online. Robert Monster (not a joke!), CEO of web hosting site Epik, posted a rambling dog and pony screed about freedumbs, and censorship, and the First Amendment.

Last night Facebook said it pulled down 30 accounts and 85 Instagram accounts "that may have been engaged in coordinated inauthentic behavior" (AKA: election fuckery). Facebook says some of the accounts were "focused on celebrities, others political debate," but it didn't offer any more details. Reuters cites a since deleted passage that noted a tip from the FBI spurred Facebook to wield its ban hammer. Coincidentally, the DHS, DOJ, DNI, and FBI all issued a joint statement yesterday warning that foreign governments, trolls and basement dwelling douche nozzles are still trying to spread santorum-filled propaganda ahead of today's election. Mind you, this is in addition to Jeff Sessions ordering the DOJ's Civil Right Division to monitor 35 jurisdictions in 19 states for good ol' fashioned voter fuckery.

Some science bozos have spotted a UFO in space. NO REALLY! This thing was just cruising through space when suddenly it started picking up speed. It's probably just Charlie Brown's Halloween rock showing up fashionably late.

Hate crimes against minority groups are rising, with attributions made to the rhetorical tone set by the nation's leadership:
Burke, Daniel (2018, November 3). Pittsburgh rabbi told Trump that hate speech led to synagogue massacre. CNN https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/03/us/pittsburgh-shooting-first-shabbat/index.html
Pittsburgh (CNN)In a short but impassioned sermon Saturday, Rabbi Jeffrey Myers blamed politicians for a rise in hateful rhetoric, saying it led to the massacre at his synagogue last week in which 11 Jews were slain in the worst anti-Semitic attack in US history.
Myers said he delivered that message personally to President Donald Trump when he and first lady Melania Trump visited Tree of Life/Or L'Simcha, the site of the shooting, on Tuesday.
"I said to him, 'Mr. President, hate speech leads to hateful actions. Hate speech leads to what happened in my sanctuary, where seven of my congregants were slaughtered. I witnessed it with my eyes."
Globally, we see intolerance amplify for minorities and those with differing political views:
Taylor, Rob (2018, November 2). China Said to Expand Detention Camps. The Wall Street Journal: A8.
US officials and United Nations experts estimate that hundreds of thousands of people, mainly from the largely Muslim Ulghur ethnic group, may have been incarcerated in the detention centers.
Migrants are being treated as criminals in many places, including the US with the troop deployment at the border being sensationalized as a weaponized response to a group of deeply impoverished and traumatized refugees whose caravan should be regarded as an act of desperation rather than an act of war....

Those who would seek to elevate human rights and reduce human suffering by expanding access to resources and political power are being monitored, and in some places detained.

In Egypt, "security" forces arrested at least 19 human rights activists, in a round-up described by the Wall Street Journal as "striking" in its scale (Malsin, Jared Nov 3-4 2018 WSJ p. A5).

In the US, right wing activists are encouraging students to film and upload video clips of so-called "Marxists Professors," a tactic which targets faculty and incites violence against them.

CONTIGUITY - from Latin contiguus ‘touching’
 
All of these illustrations share contiguities in their logics, which seek to repress pluralism, enforce homogenization around authoritarian hierarchies, and punish resistance through exposure, stigmatization, and finally disappearances.

In my opinion, the logical contiguities express a pattern of DISPLACEMENT of alienation and rage wrought by neoliberal economic and political changes (e.g., collapse of white, lower-middle class).

The values and identities targeted by displaced rage are often coded as feminine, including, for example, values promoting equality, tolerance, and social welfare.

In effect, rage against an exploitative and increasingly authoritarian global order is being displaced upon those most victimized by it, and upon those struggling against it.

I've noticed this pattern so often that I wonder about its social origins.

Meanwhile crimes by individuals and organizations with empirically demonstrable impacts, such as financial heist of the Asian Development Fund by insiders (including head of Goldman Sach's Southeast Asia operations) are marginalized (see here).

Likewise, catastrophic risks posed by the ongoing Fukushima crisis rarely are addressed in mainstream news:
