Speak of Them Never

“Let is think of them always but speak of them never” was a memo from the Brits about the beginning of a whitewash by the British for the horrific work of Joseph Stalin which led to more and worse things including Stalin’s not sending help to the Polish resistance fighters in Warsaw near the end of World War II.  Roosevelt and the United States did its part to diminish or deny the role of the Poles in the defeat of the Nazis.  This is all part of the documentation of history.  Whether it’s a “Jew Coup” or a Pole Coup, the truth should come out…finally.  Whether it’s the White House in the former or the Vad Yashem in the latter in the latest Holocaust Remembrance, the truth has to be told.

The speech by Prince Charles which I watched on FACEBOOK had lots of positive comments but that speech was just a whitewashing of all the negativity that I am writing about here.  It would be great if the Prince would give another speech detailing just how England turned its back on nationally recognized heroes as it now supported Stalin and replaced those honored men and women with Americans that arrived very late on the scene.  It was a continuation of 75 years of “speak of them never.”  British royalty expressed the highest gratitude for the Polish flyers in the battles that were taking place and then did the Brexit of its time. 

I listened Haaretz Weekly where the speakers spoke out about the “hijacking” of the 75th Holocaust Anniversary by Putin.  Even the Englishman (Ofer Adaret) who became an Israeli who was speaking about those things failed to mention the rich history full of evidence about how Stalin mowed down the Poles where he wanted to and brought about the rupture that I alluded to as Churchill and Stalin acquiesced in his demands to not talk about the Polish flyers.  Stalin was making up lies about Poles collaborating with the Nazis to support his case.

And finally those Poles were not allowed to march in the victory parade because of Stalin’s influence and then they were asked to leave England as people were concerned that jobs would be taken away from Brits.  In paraphrasing an extremely popular song “I would have liked to have known you but nativism kicked in and your candle burned out just as your legend did” makes the point.  Anyone who has played a fast paced computer game probably could appreciate those daredevils in the sky who challenged the Germans well beyond anything the Brits were capable of as they flew within 150 yards of the enemy to take them out.

You would think that Trump would step forward to speak out since he is the one that makes a big thing about heroism, thinking of his attacks of the past on John McCain and other things.  What is lacking is honor that should be an integral part of loyalty or patriotism.  We can easily conclude that there is dishonor that you should start absorbing if you haven’t started already (and the British write the word with a u).

The Holocaust event was to help us in the struggle to overcome hate and ant-Semitism.  So now let’s take a closer look at some bits of hate in America which goes pretty viral.  We should know what others are doing that contribute to hate.

My latest discovery is that the Zionist Organization of America is honoring Jeanine Pirro who spoke this way about Muslims last year “Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Koran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”  Instead of using her time precisely to contradict Congresswoman Omar’s politics, Pirro spoke about Omar’s religious life which includes the way women dress.  This question is not innocent.  And the dress of Jews and others is protected under the Constitution but there are limits to things just as free speech is limited. 

Pirro lost sponsorship over her comment and was back on the air again and I hope that she learned something from the experience.  Did she apologize to Muslims?  And the Zionist Organization of America has to explain to the world that the White House granted passes to TruNews weeks after I published my article on January 7th.  Is this the way that the White House fights anti-Semitism and hate?  It’s time for great change and that White House has to go as well.  Trump should resign because after all the “tough” decisions that Trump has made to protect Jews we know that he has only been making things worse.

I have been against Trump from the beginning because I knew that he was taking US toward a non-evidence based attack on the opposition during the Campaign that would result in rigging most things including an impeachment trial.  I concluded that what France did to one Jew in 1894 was being played out in America.  There was no evidence against Captain Alfred Dreyfus and there still is no evidence against the Bidens, even after Rudy Giuliani’s hunt for evidence in the Ukraine.  The military in France covered up for one of its own and now the Trump Administration is covering up for him.

And now Jews are being picked off easily (targets) in Monsey and other places (again) for being Jews precisely because of the way they dress.  I would hope that the people who support Pirro in this way would take a harder look at themselves, think about resigning and giving their jobs to people that would better choose men and women who know not to use such tropes to millions of people on television and others who see the material online, and learn from their mistakes the way we hope that Congresswoman Omar will learn from her anti-Semitic tropes.  I would also hope that Ambassador Dani Dayan (on television in Israel, for example) would speak out as well since he attended the ZOA event and spoke there.  In checking that agenda again, the program also included another spinner of hate, Donald Trump.

I respect the work that the legal staff of the Zionist Organization of America does to promote tranquility in the Jewish community but they do not make the decisions of our government.  They have the same right of free speech and the right to their opinion that others do who disagree.  When they do a great job they pretty much represent all Jews.  There are serious issues in this article that have to be confronted unless the climate is “speak of them never.”  I hope that Jewish people and others who support ZOA will recognize what I consider a bad decision on its part that needs the attention of the public.

This last item is from the News Release of ZOA which attacks just about everyone that they consider anti-Semitic, including Black Lives Matter.  I spoke to Rabbi Cooper once about that important matter since it was Linda Sarsour who helped bring that organization to “awareness” through a trip to the region.  I had my concerns and I still do for the same reasons.  Basically ZOA wants power taken away from dozens of people in Congress, many or most of whom are fighting against hate in our country.  And my constant calls to Jewish organizations can best be served by massive participation in the process and not by a small number of Jews controlling all the action.  I would love to do a telephone conference call with a thousand temples and Jewish organizations across our nation.I would strongly recommend that the internet burn up with messages across the United States and England to demand that middle and high school students learn more about the great work of the Poles  (Kosciuszko Squadron) who flew to protect bomber planes and attack far superior Nazi planes to save England and the free world.  And while that takes place, people in both countries should read a lot about the leaders of that time and not just learn that they appeased Hitler before World War II or that Churchill was a great hero.  There is far more to the story just as there is more to learn about the liberation of Auschwitz.  There is still that moral definition of the liberation of Auschwitz that should have been addressed by President Duda of Poland.

Bodega GED Vocabulary (TASC)


GED help is now available to everyone in the City of New York and when I say everyone I mean to everyone who knows English (people from all continents).  The GED was replaced in 2014 by the TASC Test, although the GED continues in other states along with other exams.  It’s highly doubtful that this program exists in classrooms across New York City and New York State.  Please share it now with people.

Spanish is one of the two official languages of testing and unfortunately the test was not translated into other languages.  Knowledge in Every Language Matters!

If you have not seen the link about how to study for the TASC Test, it is available online.  The link will be available in bodegas so drop into a bodega or visit the website of the United Bodega Association to obtain it.

Part of studying for the high school equivalency and learning more English is vocabulary and the program below will assist each person studying for the test.

Since a person should not read the entire book before taking the test, a good way to prepare is to learn more vocabulary.  Here is just one specific example.

Americans know the word “Prohibition” in our history.  The p is capitalized because it is the name of something and not just the word prohibition.  Prohibition is the period in history when it was illegal to make, distribute, and consume alcoholic beverages.  Vocabulary matters!  This program will help all Americans and residents to learn more.

If you have the McGraw-Hill TASC book, this program will match up perfectly in your study for the exam.

America Is on Trial as Well

Freedom of the press was established before the formation of the United States but much more.  It was the essence of freedom that spurred people forward toward the creation of the United States.  Something simple has been destroyed by Donald Trump.  That important lesson needs to be visited by all people right now. 

It was law at that time that even truth could not be told against the King of England and his government.  Let’s go back to City Hall in New York on August 4, 1735 and make this information the strongest word of today.  Zenger’s lawyer, Andrew Hamilton, admitted that John Peter Zenger had published an article that offended the king, admitting guilt.  The governor of New York was very hated by the people and it makes me think about Donald Trump and his opposition.  The jury decided in favor of Zenger since there was no falsehood in his work and the law was intolerable to them.  Hamilton made it clear that to find Zenger guilty was to continue life as slaves. 

I can see Conservatives and Republicans having a long, quiet moment contemplating the use of the word slaves.  With all the comparisons taking place related to our own politics, such as the use of “concentration camps” and other things, comparing free colonists to slaves surely hit the bullseye.  Trump has turned truth into “fake news” and his supporters are to blame.

All of that started before Trump took office but we all recall the inauguration where the photos clearly showed less support in attendance than Obama received.  And things continued from there with Conway and Spicer and Trump.  Trump became the B.S.A. organizer (not Boy Scouts of America).

The man called a five-year old by people watching his handling of White House issues had already started singing to America one of the most favorite children’s songs.  “Take the keys and lock her up….lock her up…lock her up” started by Trump finally ended with no criminal charges against Hillary which should not be interpreted as hilarious.  He continued to waste our time and money to keep his supporters engaged.

The Republicans in the Senate are playing out the Zenger Case right now and they are clearly the British against Zenger.  Truth is being cast aside for partisan politics.  The trust that we hope for in each and every American is gone.  In God We Trust has been replaced by In Trump We Trust.  A zinger will surely be the result of all those untruths and that zinger will appear in November 2020.  The impeachment process has been necessary and it is not a “hoax” as Trump pretends.  Zinger Zenger!  It’s all the same.

And the big trial of the moment that is the result of a trail of facts including telephone calls that are not in doubt is the impeachment trial.  But let US remember what took place as the United States Supreme Court gave the green light to Obama Care.  What became a fine was designated by Chief Justice Roberts as a “tax.”  How he concluded that I dunno.  It became the law of the land as a result and has not been “repealed and replaced on day one” or even over three years and a day.  At this time we are being bombarded with the thought of what actually is impeachable.

Dershowitz says that there is nothing that is impeachable and should we agree?  We can listen for sure.  Dersh was on the OJ team and I know where I was when I learned about the OJ Verdict (the trial of the century).  It was outside the Farmers’ Market in Jamaica, Queens where I had eaten a great American sub on amazing bread).  The African American who broke the silence of that street by calling out to me those ringing words “Sorry about that White boy” still stands out in my head because of that defining moment where OJ was declared “not guilty.”  OJ went on to much more, including losing a civil case and ending up in prison for a long time.  It’s really appropriate that Dersh is defending Trump right now.

Using the Roberts’ decision in the Affordable Care Act, I can see where the Supreme Court (as biased or unbiased as it may be) might declare Trump’s actions a serious attempt to destroy Joe Biden which means the political death of the Democratic candidate.  If the court can change a fine which we obtain normally as the result of doing something wrong or illegal to a tax which we can normally expect to pay in sales or at tax time, then why can’t the court rule that way against Trump.  It’s more normal than the Repugnicans have realized.  Trump’s thinking about it was bad enough, but his execution (with emphasis on the most common usage of that word) of it leads me to believe that I may be right.  The execution of Joe Biden was no hoax.

William Smith, one of Zenger’s lawyers, soon represented Christians in court in trying to disenfranchise Jews there.  He and others felt that it was insulting to the “honor of Christians” to allow Jews to vote.

Crime-an Conference: Past and Present

I just returned from Mexico after spending a week there.  On the plane, American Airlines, I read more about the five-year sacrifice of the Poles to help the free world battle the tyranny of the Nazis and Stalin, an ally.  The greatest accomplishments were made by the Polish airmen and soldiers in battle and at the end of it, the English decided in a heated battle to kick the Poles out of England.  Why? Jobs.  English needed jobs and the Poles were entitled to little or nothing.  The economy of England was in terrible shape and those times revealed the worst of people as it does today in America or even in Mexico.

I read on the plane about the Polish bombers pilots that rose in the air at the end of the war to attack a place called Berchtesgarden, a place that was used as a private hideaway just as Mar-A-Lago is being used by Trump.  You cannot compare the two, of course, but the effort to take out Donald Trump does deserve mention within that context.  Just prior to the attack in Germany, there were shouts of Viva Polonia heard.  In Mexico?  No.  Those shouts were heard in Italy as the brave, great troops of the Polish Army there took out Monte Cassino and helped liberate Italy. 

In the Election of 1944 Roosevelt got 90 percent of the Polish American vote.  The voters were obviously unaware of what was taking place behind the scenes.  And the Yalta Conference took place after the election.   This started a movement of Polish Americans away from the Democratic Party. 

That retreat for Hitler in Bavaria with the bunker that we always read about delighted Polish flyers as they spotted it from the air and gave them the kind of satisfaction that Navy Seals have derived from taking out America’s enemies (think of Obama and Trump).  That attack also was an integral part of the overall anxiety that they experienced over their own mistreatment and the mistreatment of their people at the hands of the very same people that sent them in the air.  In addition, at that very moment, they had to cooperate with their own enemy as a partner, Stalin.  This was insanity and soon people were driven to commit suicide because of the economic hardships created by England for English.

With that said we should look at the Trump American Sub that people are making US eat today as the Senate does its duty.  Yes it has to be called an American sub because no panini, Kaiser roll, bagel, bialy, baguette, Jewish rye, Italian hero, Cuban sandwich, Portuguese roll, or even Mexican tortilla would fit the cause.  There is something that smells far worse on that America First Sub.  Could it be Limburger, which contains the same bacterium as smelly feet or body odor?  A close look at the ingredients reveals no such cheese.  No!  The problem is the smell emanated by Trump and America First and it follows in communities everywhere.

Just before the attack on Pearl Harbor, there were fascists trying to overthrow the United States around our nation’s cities.  Jews would have no chance once the German’s eliminated England and concentrated its might on America.  Roosevelt knew that an attack on the United States would be next and tried to obtain the British navy for US well before the great fight was taken by the Allied forces.  The Polish fighters in England and its resistance fighters in Poland played major roles in the war to defend the world and the Polish people lost.  The propaganda machine controlling English government which ended with the reporting of Edward R. Murrow and others was soon back in action again as English who praised and supported the Poles now turned their backs on them.

Teheran is back in the news again as it was when Roosevelt and Churchill agreed to appease Stalin and allow him to divide Poland.  It could have been stopped and Churchill much later briefly alluded to that possibility, but the United States was on course to stay out of the matter.  Roosevelt defined that even as 7 million Poles could decide to vote against him and turn the White House over to Republicans.   

There was Russian influence back then playing an important role.  Why?  Stalin is the answer.  There surely was time to stop the process started in Teheran but there was no strong will.  Clearly it would have needed much more that was not in place in 1945 as Germany surrendered.  It would have required more planes, artillery, weapons of all descriptions, food and other resources needed in war, and the will to challenge Stalin.

And in the latest Crime-an event that involves the Ukraine instead of Poland, we see more than just appeasement by Trump and his handling of diplomacy and his intention to destroy the Democrats unfairly.  Our government has just indicated that what Trump has done broke the law and that should be classified as a crime.  Poland had obstacles created by Roosevelt and now Trump has just created for the Ukraine.  There will be more later.

The meetings to start the United Nations took place in San Francisco in April 1945.  Roosevelt had already died of a massive cerebral hemorrhage and Truman was in charge.  Artur Rubenstein, the renowned Polish pianist, was there in the Opera House performing.  He played the American National Anthem.  He followed that with an anthem that he knew well.  That anthem is called “Poland Has Not Yet Perished as Long As We Live” or “Mazurek Dąbrowskiego” the Polish national anthem.  There was great applause but nothing helped.  Rubenstein was known for his humanitarianism as he helped Jews, Poles, Israel, and African Americans.

It has been almost 75 years since that performance and now as we see the world slightly more destabilized by the actions of Donald Trump and we see tens of millions of Americans ready to dedicate that American sub to Trump as the Senate votes first before we vote in November, consider that after the debate that accused Churchill of betraying the Polish people that every single member of Parliament gave him a confidence vote.  We noticed the same thing with a few Republicans who were deeply affected by statements made by Trump’s own people in relation to the issue of the allegations of a future attack on four embassies.  Those people voted to support Trump against impeachment in the House of Representatives afterwards. 

The stink coming from the Trump American sub clearly is Trump himself who has created this for himself as Hitler and Stalin (and Churchill and Roosevelt) did the same things to create things for themselves.  And that makes me think of my grandmother who would possibly state loyf from me avek at the thought of Trump’s stink coming close to her and pleading for it to run away from her. There could have been options, quite expensive ones, to build up capacity to confront Stalin as I said before.  The will was weak for sure.  The British suffered under an economy that had lost at least 25 percent of its GNP while the American economy boomed as the principal supplier to the war effort.  The shortages and sacrifices (rationing for example) revealed to me by my own mother in 1950s were nothing in comparison with what the Brits and Poles had to face.  The Poles eventually faced starvation whether they were in Poland or under the “protection” of Stalin in Soviet Russia. 

We are not starving today, there is no war really going on compared to WW II, the economy has been getting better and better since 2008 and the political war that is going on must be resolved in November.  What can be done is that people have to be convinced now and we cannot wait to the last second to produce the best information that will convince voters.  Even at the last second, the importance of producing great material in an election that honors truth and destroys propaganda must be valued as well.

And today there is news that the Trump-Giuliani team is being more exposed as Les Parnas is indicating that Dmytro Firtash with strong connections to Putin is being mentioned.  Firtash has indicated his opposition to Joe Biden.  The question now is did Firtash provide the impetus to Parnas for the Trump take down of Joe Biden?  This also causes us to bring up James Comey and the Mueller Investigation and Report.  Are the Russians involved?  Are the Russians involved?  Could it be that all of this is a repeat of Stalin-Roosevelt against Poland being replaced by Putin-Trump against the Ukraine?

Here is more about Firtash from the book Trump/Russia by Seth Hettena that I read and wrote about in Jewish Business News.  Paul Manafort was talking to Firtash about building a $1.5 billion dollar skyscraper on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Fifty-Sixth Street in Manhattan.  The tower deal later collapsed after a deposit on the project was made in the sum of $25 million.  Manafort then proposed that Oleg Deripaska go into business together in the Cayman Islands, known for money laundering.  Deripaska was only interested in one deal and for $19 million and a sale was made.  Manafort “pocketed” $1.1 million of the agreed price without Deripaska’s knowledge.  Part of the problem was that the company sold was only worth $4.5 million which makes everything highly suspicious. It turned out that the company that Manafort started didn’t even own the company it sold. 

Manafort was tightly connected with the Ukraine in 2010 and Viktor Yanukovych who Manafort was connected with was working closer and closer to Russia and away from por-Western initiatives.  Corruption escalated and then Robert Mueller stepped in and money was being stashed away in Cyprus. 

The corruption from those days was far greater than say the corruption in Puerto Rico that was used by Trump to create obstacles for Puerto Rico. 

$80 billion taken from the Ukraine treasury

82 people were killed in demonstrations in Kiev (13 policemen were killed and 1,100 people were injured)

Yanukovych fled to Russia with Putin’s help

Roger Stone, recently convicted, was asking about Paul Manafort who had lost an important source of income.  One of Stone’s choices about where Manafort could be was “playing golf in Palm Beach.”  Could it be that Manafort was playing golf with Trump in those days.  Manafort, according to Hettena, had helped Washington create the “swamp” that it had become and Manafort became the Trump campaign chairman and chief strategist.

Trump sold a mansion that he had purchased for $41.35 million dollars to Dmitry Rybolovlev four years later for $95 million.  The mansion named Maison de l’Amitié was torn down and the land was sold.  The property owned by Trump was full of mold (his company claimed that Trump’s renovations totaled $25 million but Trump himself only claimed $3 million in renovations).   Trump outbid Jeffrey Epstein to gain ownership.   Years later the mansion was valued at only $60 million and after 2016 one parcel of around 2 acres sold for $34.34 million out of three similar parcels (all three sold for $108.2 million).   Rybolovlev also became a big stakes holder in the Bank of Cyprus (see Cyprus mentioned previously).   And Trump apparently had trouble getting banks to fund his purchase and his company had filed for bankruptcy as well.  And I learned that the property was purchased by a holding company with no details about who the new owner is.

Could it also be possible that we will be hearing more about those deals that I just mentioned in the future?  It would be nice if Robert Mueller would tell US, for example, that the investigation was halted only because his office could not get cooperation from witnesses.  If Rybolovlev had been a businessman whose business profile was completely clean, I wouldn’t be writing this material.  And the same goes for Manafort.  I do suspect that all this information about the Ukraine and Russia is far from over.

I Can Handle Stalin-Putin Better

This is a must read to share with things that I have written about.
“A very superficial man, ignorant, dilettantish, with a very limited intellectual horizon.”
“I just have a hunch.”
He bypassed knowledgeable people in the State Department.
“An unbounded faith in his ability to win over leaders of other countries.”
He did not know about Soviet history.
He weakened the Republican Party.
Experts considered his policies and actions “unwise.”
“He did not seem much concerned about the future (meaning future consequences of his actions).
He was only interested in getting himself reelected.
He was seen as “accessible to our influence.”
He was ready to “mislead” and lie.

I read these things in about six pages of material. Republicans will be delighted to know that they support someone who closely resembles a strong Democrat, someone that they wanted to impeach.

There was betrayal, of course. Poles expected the best from the United States then as Ukrainians now hope for the best. Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto were hoping for America to save them from the greatest anti-Semitism that our people have ever known as well. That did not happen.

This is more that I learned about what actually happened. All the accomplishments made by the Kosciuszko Squadron and Poles who fought to free there country from Hitler and Stalin were erased from the minds of Americans and Brits. Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt were behind all that. Among those events were Stalin’s use of trumped up charges, focusing on the word trumped. What he did has been done throughout the Trump Administration and those Trumped up comments about his opposition leading to all nays in the Senate vote yesterday.

Let’s take a close look at those allies who needed Stalin’s support in the war.
The United States Office of War Information was a propaganda machine that painted Slalin in a better way.
Time and Life Magazines called Stalin “Uncle Joe.” He won man of the year in Time for the second time, the first time for being accurately portrayed.

His secret police were touted as like our F.B.I. instead of what it really was.
Propaganda convinced Americans that capitalism had returned to Soviet Russia.
There were comparisons to Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln.

Hollywood, which only years before, as it appears in the book Hitler in Los Angeles where Hitler pulled strings there was now having its strings pulled Washington and the Stalin influence. There was a group of movies made, including Mission to Moscow. The book by Joseph E. Davies was ghost written in three weeks for him and met Roosevelt’s “expectations.” The commitment to equality in Russia was depicted and Warner Brothers was asked during a dinner with FDR to make into a movie. The Hitler-Stalin agreement is portrayed as only for the purpose of buying time.

Davies was a close confidant of Roosevelt who married into the Post cereal family. Davies secretly met with Stalin to smooth things over to arrange a meeting. Poland was the well prepared meal course to be devoured by Stalin.

Then we get to the massacre of Polish officers that I learned about many years ago and about 8 percent of those killed were Jews including the chief rabbi of the Polish Army. It was very well known by Churchill and Roosevelt that it was Stalin’s doing. Even members of the Polish resistance knew about it back then.

The daughter of Averill Harriman was chosen to go to the gravesite and she concluded that it was Hitler’s doing. Her father had been appointed the U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union after representing Roosevelt in London, which I read about in Citizens of London by Lynne Olson. In that book I also learned that Harriman also wished to recoup a loss of $500,000 resulting from the fall from power of the Czar and his government. Much later on she confessed that she actually believed that the Germans had done it but that was after she wrote the only report on it. Why? Why? Why?

The resistance of Poles added up to 20 percent of the effort as Hitler attacked Stalingrad and lost. There was sabotage of rail travel, delays of the delivery of demanded food supply, espionage at high levels, and much more. Among the latter were Poles who working with the Nazis convinced them that the great landing of troops in France was going to take place at Pas de Calais and not Normandy and a female Polish agent who was an old friend of the German, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris who decided to get rid of Hitler by leaking classified information. And all of this is just a short list of the daring deeds of Poles.

The Polish government in exile had to keep silent as well about the misdeeds of Churchill and Roosevelt but Poles in the action continued to protect downed American flyers. They even held a parade to honor those Americans on July 4, 1944 in Poland and under dangerous conditions.

It became known after rejection after rejection to Poles that it was the result of the follow the leader game. And that was all about Stalin and very little else. Those brave Poles saved 40,000 Jews and this later was honored by the Vad Yashem in Israel.

This is where we have been in history and the present will decide the future. The impeachment trial should be decided by evidence and being a Republican or Repugnican is not evidence. I would have to vote present and not any or yes since my feelings are well known. But we the general public can only raise our voices. Trump broke the law as he has before.

I wish that Robert Mueller would come to tell you more than he did when he said that he would only address the things that were in the Mueller Report. I didn’t mention in my last article that the elderly Jewish man (I am almost 75) asked me if think Trump is “traitor.” Without evidence I cannot say that I know but I feel that he probably cut a deal with Putin. That is what bad leaders do. Where is this taking US in the future?
And that future could be soon, this year even. I wish that Mueller and John Bolton would speak up. People chose not to speak up because of that trio from Yalta.

Trump is handling Putin quite well by alienating all our allies (almost) as Roosevelt handled Russia by allowing the destruction of Poland which was the country in Eastern Europe with the most Western values. Life for Poland’s Jews in the 1930s showed great progress. The portrayal of Mission to Moscow or the spin given due to political considerations and Stalin rooting out “the enemy of the people” including officers of the Polish military who sometimes came from the landed aristocracy was news to American theater goers but among those officers were men who trained with those great Polish airmen.

Others that survived the trip to Siberia later were able to be rehabilitated and trained to join Anders Army, the Polish unit that fought valiantly to overtake Monte Cassino in Italy.

Joe Biden became an “enemy of the people” long before Trump’s phone call to the Ukraine. Putin is clearly in the background but so are the ghosts of Stalin and Roosevelt flying around undetected. The liberty of a nation became meaningless although in the case of Roosevelt, Poland never had any importance.

What was just “hearsay” to Republicans who are quickly turning into Repugnicans is now powerful evidence. Do they even care even as some feign caring? Those nays were Trump’s “perfect” votes. He loves them for their hate of truth.

Roosevelt-Stalin-Trump-Putin rule the world destroying liberty where they choose. We have gone from Poland to the Ukraine but the Ukraine matter has not been hushed up. Thank goodness. There was no evidence and there still is no evidence against Hunter Biden and Joe is surely not the “Uncle Joe” portrayed by the American propaganda mschine. The Battle of Truth and Liberty is here.

I live with the Polish reaction to Katyn Woods but I would like see a half hour presentation of the Ukrainian peoples’ reaction to Trump’s phone call and its aftermath. Does such a program exist?


Adam Schiff Tackles Trump

Almost two years ago I had this published About half of the $18 billion should go to helping veterans across the country

A small amount of the money could go to Israel to help that nation as things begin to destabilize in the Middle East and Iran.  Our nation and Israel are great allies.

o helping veterans across the country. A small amount of the money could go to Israel to help that nation as things begin to destabilize in the Middle East and Iran.  Our nation and Israel are great allies.” This was about Trump’s wall. And now there is heightened fear among Jews due to recent attacks.
In the political football game which is not a game at all, Adam Schiff just tackled Trump in the end zone and scored points. The current situation is not just a lack of leadership by Trump and his “eys for an eye” take out of the Iranian and then showing no proof of an imminent attack on four embassies. This should remind all Americans of looking for the weapons of mass destruction and we should step forward to ask for evidence.

Floridians, but particularly Jewish ones should now learn that even Congressman Schiff did not have his best thinking hat on. Jews were among those killed in the Parkland Massacre and Trump turned his back on that problem, leaving things to the state and Governor De Santis. Then there was the attack in the home of a Hasidic rabbi in Monsey, New York where five five Orthodox Jews were injured. And we can point to the murder of three people in Jersey City, two Orthodox Jews and one Hispanic. We thank the rabbi who publicly asked that there should be no revenge and that tolerance is what is needed.

Finally something important happened that will be helpful in protecting Jews and others and that was done by Governor Andrew Cuomo who put New York’s money up to protect people. Clinton gave Jewliani (you know who I mean) 1,000 police to fight crime in N.Y.C. in the 1990s. Trump could have done that, but the truth is domestically he has failed Jews. His diplomacy is about real estate involving the moving of a building from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and granting zoning for more building by Israelis. Trump’s base will not accept federal funding to protect Jews. Giuliani claims he is more Jewish than his friends and that makes me think that I must be an anti-Semite. If he can exaggerate so can I.

I just had a conversation with Russian Jews who really believe there is no evidence against Trump to be impeached and I had to break the news to them about people in Florida that they are in bed with for supporting Trump who have revealed their anti-Semitism by calling the impeachment a “Jew Coup.” Will those Jews move to the center now? It’s doubtful, but it is possible.

Even Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center ignored all these things in praising America, making it appear that people are saying that the anti-Semitism just started under Trump when almost a any Jew could think of the attack in Crown Heights in the 1990s, and his portrayal of anti-Semitism being imported from Europe where things are closer to Israel and the Middle East is just a piece of the anti-Semitism. And in 1999 while I was in a Rubber Room in Brooklyn, an African American who was also there told me that the Jews should never have gone to Israel which was unforgettable. Analyze that.

The husband thinks that small business people are the most important group in the economy and he did ask me what I thought about Michael Bloomberg. Being a businessman does not make Bloomberg more qualified than the others and the man finally admitted that he doesn’t like Trump but being a Republican was a factor. I have written many times that Trump is just holding the party together.

Trump could have earned thousands of Jewish votes in both states by knowing how to do things better. Ask him about that now and you’ll hear the predictable answer that is has “amazing numbers”among Jews. Florida went Republican by slightly more than 1 percent and Democrats know that Republicans can be defeated there just by the swing of Jewish voters. I know much more about Florida than that.

Synagogues in Florida and New York that were unprotected during the Obama years are now paying for protection. Most Jews know that Trump has stirred anti-Semitism but not those Russians. But every vote matters. Florida can easily be taken and every time I read those articles online that Trump cannot be defeated I know that is merely propaganda. Nor do I anticipate any scandalous expose coming out that would knock Trump out of the box.

A former leader of the Democratic Party now knows what it will take to defeat Trump. I just decided to reveal this. I have not sent the information to anyone in government in order to show respect for protocols but perhaps the ideas will enter state campaigns across our nation. And if something doesn’t result from that individual, I have options.

Should Florida and New Jersey be asking for more federal funds to protect people? Of course. Trump bailed out farmers with billions and nobody killed them. Trump racked up huge trade deficits with China which drove up prices on consumers but most of all our nation owes Trump a debt. Of course I mean to say that Trump is adding to our nation’s debt through his tax reform which was amazing for the richest corporations and individuals.

We need lots of help and at this point, it appears to me, that the investment in Donald Trump is reminiscent of the Maginot Line in French military history that the Nazis easily penetrated. In reading about the the Kosciuszko Squadron, I learned that French flyers and people expected the line in the Ardennes Forest to hold. Those flyers were drinking champagne instead of learning how to fight. And the Polish flyers were never called into battle. And when England desperately needed help and called upon them finally they played the key role in winning The Battle of British.

The commanding British were skeptical of the great number of bombers and fighters kills that were submitted. The Germans underestimated those numbers as well as they always expected submission by the Brits who correctly never gave up. What the commanders soon did was go up that pole in the sky to verify what the Polish Squadron did. They had never seen anything like it as those flyers broke up formations, easily took out bombers, and rushed within 150 yards at fighter planes firing to make kills. When the Germans entered and easily crossed the Maginot Line, those superior fighters were sitting on the bench, victims of ignorance and bias which continued into England until that country was in breaths of being taken over by Adolph Hitler.

The Polish Squadron which included an “ace” with 17 kills who was Czech and proud to be part of Poles who really knew how to fight. The Poles were responsible for 48 percent of the kills. Hitler pulled away from the attack. And during that time an American public opinion poll that showed very low support for England at 16 percent soared in one month to 52 percent and we have those Poles to thank for that. Those men in the air and their mechanics on the ground had dual loyalties and in helping to defeat the Germans, they saved the United States from attack. Roosevelt actually wanted the British to transfer its fleet to US, but Churchill fought on.

We should see such great increases in polls that ask how are we doing in the fight against anti-Semitism. I can assure my readers and others that I have jumped into the pool to help in the epicenter of the battle and I see problems. Adam Schiff is not part of a “Jew Coup” to impeach Trump. He is a fighter working hard improve things, making America and the world a better place.

Rabbi Hier, at the very least, should find some talented fighters that would make his efforts stronger. He needs help as his recent television interview demonstrates. Trump has to be replaced.

I would like people to approach Republican Party leaders to ask them to announce to the American people and the world what are the political party affiliations of those White Jew haters. Of course I realize that Donald Trump, if asked to that, will most likely declare that there is “no evidence” in order to protect his ass-ets. Florida and other key states will wake up before November 2020. And while those Republicans are doing what I ask, they can call off their dogs by yelling out loud that the Mueller Report’s principal conclusion was that Trump could not be indicted because he is a “sitting president.” The dangers being faced require that.

The contempt and indifference shown to the Kosciuszko Squadron still exists today in the Trump Administration. I know something about the fight in New York that I will share with the Schiff Squadron. We’ll see how the other Squadron of newcomers to Congress reacts to this. I will do my best to expose things.

And finally Adam Schiff and others should learn that these Poles had a tradition that they taught the British officers. They put them in a chair and tossed them in the air three times. My tradition is to tell you the truth to make a great difference in this world

Emma Lazarus Palestine 1883

Over a decade before Theodore Herzl realized the need for Jews to have a homeland, Emma Lazarus through her own serious, social consciousness began to construct the idea of Palestine as a place to help Jews escape the persecution of Russia. Lazarus came from a wealthy family that socialized with the Astors, Vanderbilts, and Belmonts. She had access to Jews in London, but she only progressed a little. So much for Jewish money controlling the world at that time.

And when Zionism started developing, America continued to receive more and more Jews until there were changes in the 1920s including the criminalization of people crossing our Southern border which still plagues the fate of human beings seeking asylum. Idealism lost its place in the world again as it has today under Trump and his spokesmen.

The Statue of Liberty was conceived to reflect the liberty obtained by America’s slaves, but the final steps were not completed. Decades later the statue took on a new spirit that should make US unite but there have always been opponents who are guided by intolerance and hate. They always combine with the apathetic to make things even worse.

Emma Lazarus instantly wrote the New Colossus and today Donald Trump has written himself into history books with his New Nativism which our nation could have been spared. The latter is clearly an unimpeachable offense. There is time still to destroy it in 2020. And what is needed is 20-20 vision. Short of victory right now what is needed is to produce a much stronger voice as millions more people join the ranks as people become more educated. And we are not going to generate from a degenerate a Statute of Liberty.

Just before the idea and the completion of the statue in France along with the threat of nativism in New York City which was so close at hand and which continued to have a pernicious effect on the Irish, there were mobs committing violence among Irish themselves as Protestants and Catholics bloodied various neighborhoods. That was preceded by violence over Lincoln’s presidential order of the Civil War draft where the streets were bloodied as Negroes were victims because of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Those chapters of history should be told to our nation’s students to lead the way to something much better than the same kind of degeneracy but modernized by laws that protect people and by tens of millions of people following Trump on Twitter. The problem didn’t begin when Trump assumed that “some” being sent by Mexico were okay and the rest were murderers, rapists, etc.. His record was well established long before that. And his supporters relished it.

Some more Christians are waking up and joining others that knew what was going on. Evangelicals are coming under more fire right now and Florida can experience the electoral earthquake that will remove Repugnicans from office at the national level. They will have earned it. Conservatives talk shows must be reaching tens of thousands of people and the result is and will continue to be that hate already mentioned that results in violence will continue. But now is the time to strike liberty’s bell and do more than listen to speeches. It would also be great if conservative talk show hosts would challenge others in the name of truth. Do you see that happening?

From thoughts of Palestine by Emma Lazarus, we turn to history as a guide and one man’s inhumanity to man over and over. History doesn’t matter to huge percentages of people in power and in communities among other things. Hitler made things so bad for Jews that they committed suicide. It was expressed that the Nazis were not going to put a policeman behind every Jew to save people and Winston Churchill had a callous attitude to the hunger strike of Gandhi which could have led to Gandhi’s early death. How many people express only their own selfish interests and are they even trustworthy in my America?

Once the right-wing in Poland espousing “Poland for Poles” after World War I, Jews became victims of growing hate. And America First in Trump’s America has its effect even as Trump advances Israel’s agenda. As World War II started, people from all walks of life were digging trenches together in Poland including rabbis.

It takes great work to win wars against hate. The rabbi in Monsey, New York spoke eloquently about the need for tolerance but Trump has failed at it dismally. His DNA will cause his doom if more people unite. I just read about the heroic efforts of the Kosciuszko Squadron (the mostly Polish airmen that had battle experience trying to save Poland after Hitler attacked that country and forced it to surrender) and how great the flyers were in saving England and the free world. Those men had to sit on the sidelines and watch the men and women who “saved” the world and did not get their just rank in the fake news of it’s time. Why? Stalin objected and that may put Trumpism in better perspective today as we reflect on just how Trump has Putin on his mind.

And we know that Trump takes all the credit for himself and his America first voters follow. This is a war we are engaged in but without troops that land on beaches. The beaches are in the minds of people so there are no mines. There will be more on this another time but things should explode soon. People are still tired and poor and yearning to be free. And It’s amazing how Russia has played such a significant part in all that history.











The Jew Coup and The Evangelicals

I did a search and found the David Pakman Show but that was a week ago with no details about evangelicals attending the march to fight against anti-Semitism.

I watched one of David’s presentations for the first time where he showed Pastor Rick Wiley on Trunews detailing how a “Jew Coup” is taking place against Donald Trump.  He also spoke about a possible civil war just like the one that took place in the 1860s and he said that the military has to take a side now and probably before Christmas (which has passed).  The pastor is a Floridian and that will be an important state in 2020 no matter who the candidates will be.  And at this time, certain Jewish organizations would prefer to bring attention to Islamicists and African Americans, the latter as a result of the recent attacks on Jews that we have seen in the media.

I just wrote about Donald Trump and his meeting in Miami with evangelicals who prayed for him because he is the man fighting for them.  Pastor Guillermo Martinez was there and I was not impressed by the gathering that included a relative of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  You must know who she is by now.  Wouldn’t you think that Trump had enough sense to invite or even demand that those people come to the march in New York City to help us fight hate together?  And then there is Turning Points USA which is another top Trump organization that did not attend.  And then there is the Black Leadership Conference of Candace Owens that was not there.  Will they be there for Jews when things get much worse?  In fact where was Samuel Rodriguez who interfaces with Christian churches in New York.  He leads the and he really seems much more interested in the reaction to editorials that go against Trump.

The Spanish Christian world should know that I paid my respects in Brentwood, New York to the family of Dr. Milton Donato whose family helped organize the Spanish church called La Sinagoga.  I was told how those Christians loved the Jews and in the old days Jews delivered ice to them in their apartment in the city.  Dr. Donato was also president of Radio Visión Cristiana in Paterson, New Jersey where I visited a few times.  The religious community can do much more for the huge population of immigrants that live in America.  Trump, for example, has held back a plan to give people lower cost and so-called medical insurance that would topple Obama Care and that has not happened as evangelicals continue the farce of praying to a man that others say God has sent here. 

In addition to that I did attend a rally called “Jesus for America” in Washington, D.C.  The famous singer Pat Boone was there with everyone.

Let me get back to the living conditions of the immigrants before the Civil War to explain.  The Irish and other immigrants who lived in wooden tenements lived under disease and contagious disease and nothing was done for them, prayer existed back then as well.  Those immigrants arrived sick just as the immigrants at our border arrive sick and then get mistreated by Trump’s trillion obstacles.  Those people were poor and had to live under the poorest conditions.  So after facing great dangers, those immigrants sought places to live on Manhattan where the poor lived.  The wooden tenements were “miserable” places to live.  People lived in a small single room with family and boarders.  Whole panes of glass were missing in winter.  Snow entered their places of residence.  Just like those immigrants, we know that Mexicans As you can see, I am not in a position to know just what action the evangelicals around Donald Trump have taken.  And I do know Hispanic pastors that have been connected with organizations in the tri-state area that have appeared to me to be connected.  Those evangelicals that support Trump may have decided to sit this march out.  I read about the Hasidic leaders that were upset with an organizer or organizers of the march in the Jewish community although I also read about a Hasidic man who appreciated the “unity.”  These are things we have to know just as we have to know more about the schism that took place this week in the Methodist Church and world in America over matters pertaining to homosexuals.  Homosexuals were Holocaust victims and the Bible is the barometer for the reading of huge numbers of Christians concerning their hate of homosexuals, even among African Americans.  Now I am not going to suggest that the top evangelicals become grand marshalls of the gay pride parades including parades in Tel Aviv but we must tell those leaders that enough is enough and their support of Trump is wrong, dangerous, and that these matters are harmful to this nation just as they were in German and Nazi occupied Europe.

and others have lived under similar conditions of overcrowding.  But a major difference in those days was that they had outhouses in back of the tenements. 

The apartments that faced the backyard had to endure the terrible stink coming from those outhouses.  And the only time that they got help was in the two summer months when the stink was intolerable and action was taken.  Men and women died falling out the fire escapes or the window ledges to get away from the heat and stink. 

America had Make America Great Again and Trump’s opponent telling US that America Has Always Been Great.  Now Hillary Clinton will become the chancellor of an Irish University, Queens University in Belfast (founded to assist Catholics and Presbyterians).  I would like to see Hillary Clinton set up scholarships for Americans in conjunction with the N.A.AC.P. and other organizations. The Irish “Liberator” Daniel O’Connell associated himself with causes to reduce prejudice among Catholics, Jews, and African peoples including working with Frederic Douglas.  In addition the scholarships could bear the names of Muhammad Ali and Barack Obama who discovered their Irish roots and publicized that.

And my readers who know me well by have been told repeatedly that I read in bed at night.  Last night was about the “Irish Metropolis” of New York City before the Civil War.  Here is just a small piece of the puzzle about the famine Irish that arrived in New York and it wasn’t just often “Irish Need Not Apply.”  There was a “master-slave” relationship between domestic workers and their employers involving sexual abuse, life expectancy after arriving was about six years, children struggling to make it on their own after the death of a parent or parents, most domestic workers were illiterate and could not write their name, sometimes only one day off during a month of hard work, firing of sick workers (worse than slavery itself), low pay, ads about no Irish were changed to Protestants only and Americans (and that took place after those offensive ads were contested in a court of law and The Irish-American press vowed to “kill that kind of prejudice), people who performed work were often told to “hurry up” all day long to make production much greater than it was known in Ireland, and other skilled workers  such as the women who were sewers would not be paid for work rendered that employers purposely called “subpar” or late and those employers made money from those garments later.  This was exploitation of the worker and it makes me think of only one man in America and he has to be removed from office.

The United States had a “revolution” in 1776 but you can see that the revolution was very limited, as we know from studying our history.  And by the time of that early immigration, the Founding Fathers were long dead and could not be called upon to tell US more about their decisions.  The United States was ripe for communism or socialism back then but what was offered was charity as organizations were set up to help the poor.  The Communist Manifesto was first published in 1848 and its ideas were new to the world.  It was very timely since there were revolutions being fought in Europe that year and after the defeat of those revolutionaries many Germans started to arrive in New York to form the community of Kleindeutschland and they settled where I grew up on the Lower East Side in the 1950s and 1960s.

Remittances to family in Ireland totaled $120 million and was huge, just like the remittance to Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and other countries today.  Those immigrants noticed advantages in staying in America but it was far less than great.  And it was not an invasion just like today’s immigrants that come here.  Although there were people like Trump who painted it an invasion or worse.  We could go back to the Know Nothing Party of that time and the damage that it caused to America just as we speak about Trump and his alliance with various groups including evangelicals.

The Bible says that the “lord detests lying lips.”  Is that a reference only to Trump’s lips?

It says “though shalt not bear false witness” which Trump has repeatedly done to people and especially to Joe Biden at this time.

The same kind of stink that emanated from the slums of New York City almost two hundred years ago and the hate that went along with living there continues today.  The evangelical cannot smell it because it has helped to create it under Trump.  I thank Christianity Today for its recent editorial against Trump.  Clearly being in non-compliance with the Bible is a trait of millions of evangelicals even as they pray for Donald Trump. 

There was no statement about hate on the website of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference this morning when I visited that site.  Pastor Samuel Rodriguez has posted that there should be a deal for D.A.C.A. for the “Dreamers” that funds Donald Trump’s wall.  Some of his biggest supporters in New York City would tolerate walls instead of bridges in Caribbean, knowing that walls divide people.  And I have written about the invitation that Rodriguez received from the White House to visit the Trump concentration camp at the border which was also provided by Hitler to the Red Cross as a propaganda stunt.  And evangelicals follow this stink?  If there is a prayer for Donald Trump that prayer is to keep him far away from US.  He and his support from evangelicals has hurt our democracy and our values. 

How prevalent is the idea of a “Jew Coup” among evangelicals? I dunno.  Given the size of that community, it could be pretty large.

Honesty

Things have not changed that much since those prerevolutionary days in certain ways.  I am referring to honesty at high levels such as the honesty of people in around the White House and my reading of CITY of DREAMS is a lesson for all including the “Dreamers” of today.  The story of Alexander Mc Dougall has to be told now along with Donald Trump’s firing of undocumented immigrants at his winery in Virginia.  His partisans will continue to purchase massive amounts of the wine even though his son fired these immigrants after the harvest and after the backlash over how on earth can an American president say one thing and do another thing years after he was exposed. 

Mc Dougall was sucked in by ex-military Captain Lauchlan Campbell who went to Scotland and told residents that he would transport people to America free of charge so that he could settle them on 30,000 acres.  The intended purpose was to have a “buffer zone” against the Native Americans to the north near Albany.

The Mc Dougall family arrived and could not go to those farmlands and no land would be granted to them.  Hmmmm.  Three years later in America we see that there has been no health care replacement and people are more frustrated about Trump’s True intentions and purpose.  The Mc Dougalls learned that they would have to pay back the cost of the transport to America and they would only be tenant farmers.  And the colonial assembly refused to grant him the land he was promised.  Such is power in the hands of people who can easily be corrupted.

The family had to freedom to move on and to make ends meet the father, Ranall Mc Dougall had to indenture himself to repay Campbell.  The system was rigged just as our system is largely rigged right now at a critical time of our history.  Years later Mc Dougall worked his way up but the classic story has a certain freshness about it.  That is due to new information or evidence where before historians concentrated on other factors in the work.

I have written about the great body of evidence that started to surface in the field of G.E.D. or high school equivalency in 2008 and I had not seen anything like it from 1942 on.  It revealed an America that was just as shocking as it had been before the Revolutionary War but the more things changed the more they remained the same.

As Mc Dougall made it in New York the wonderful book by Tyler Anbinder tells us that Mc Dougall was engaged in things such as privateering and the slave trade where he rented out slaves to make money.  The class divisions that were common throughout that society were in New York and he could not buy his way in as people continued to be snobbish.  The man was mocked and who knows possibly bullied as well.  He began to write anonymously against the English.  And keep in mind that the church that one belonged to was important as well. 

The redcoats retaliated with their own written “broadside” or posting that could be read everywhere and they attacked the “Sons of Liberty.”  And things turned bloody between them near William and John Streets.  The leadership of the Sons of Liberty was mostly born in the colonies but the vast number of sailors who were in the streets fighting against the redcoats were immigrants.  Huge numbers were Scotch-Irish and Irish immigrants whose religions were different from the powerful English and the Anglican Church.  Religion mattered since those immigrants had considerable complaints against the Church of England which favored its own. 

Possibly if the English had not turned for decades to deliberately populating Dutch New York as it had Ireland, English would not be spoken here today.  And as you can see although we were taught that among the entire population that a third was loyal to England, a third wanted to fight for liberty, and a third was undecided, it is far from certain truth to call them the English colonists now that we know the truth of their numbers and the intense hostility socially, economically, and politically is brought to the fore. 

The economic divisions were apparent back then even before the industrial revolution taking place in the 1790s as there were lots of merchants, skilled workers, and unskilled workers.  The wages were higher in the colonies than they were back home in places like Scotland but it soon became apparent that the cost of living was higher as well in good ole New York.  It was hard to make ends meet then and it’s the same today.

It wasn’t just the colonists that joined in against the English as war broke out.  New arrivals sensing that their future was with the “patriots” joined in and most of them had bad feelings toward England.  And there were arrivals from Europe and the Caribbean, among other places.  Alexander Hamilton’s fame has been brightened because of the lights on Broadway.

Two others that should be mentioned during that Revolutionary War or “rebellion” where important comments were made that give us the perspective of a “Irish-Scotch Presbyterian rebellion.”  There were French Hugenots, Germans, English, Irish, and others as well. 

The stories of two immigrants should be told quickly.  James Rivington was a printer who had lost his fortune by gambling on horses and came to America.  He printed propaganda for the British and the mob of patriots came after him.  This “Judas” was paid a visit by George Washington as witnesses heard the sound of gold coins being paid to Rivington who had been a spy for the Americans all along and his work led to the great victory at Yorktown.  A month later, an unknowing mob reacting to the “fake news” of its time beat him and he was soon out of business again.

Haym Salomon was a German Jew who made a fortune and lived life as a “loyalist.”  His ideas helped finance the American side during the war and kept those soldiers equipped for the final battles.  I have repeatedly mentioned how Washington visited the Newport Synagogue (Touro) and declared his protection for Jewish immigrants.  Relationships matter! 

During those colonial days immigrants suffered through immense diseases and the diseases of hate.  Catholics were detested as “papists” and for not complying with the religious tenets of others.  Jews were tormented even as they walked through the streets to bury their dead. 

With all the talk of liberty that we hear, after the Stamp Acts there was a brief return to normalcy as the colonists had been hurt by the boycott of British goods that had taken place.  Things were getting desperate. 

Turning to current things.  Although things do not appear to be desperate today, even with the creation of millions of jobs things are not good in the United States.  The raising of the minimum wage about to take place in 22 states has nothing to do with Trumpism.  Trump has to face the assassination of an Iranian general right now and there no time to tout jobs at a critical moment like this. 

And this is no time for Trump’s “fake news.”  The trade war did not work out well back then and Americans were told that Trump was going to restore manufacturing jobs as he told about the losses from back in Clinton’s days.  The discussions leading up to election of Clinton that I had were about trade with Japan and those automobiles.  Now after causing scorching tariffs, Trump is turning off the heat and the deal with China is about China buying more pigs and not cars and other manufactured items.  The deal maker failed but he expects to gain around the country.

On the one hand it one could conclude that Trump is showing that he is not in Putin’s pocket by killing the general.  On the other hand, we have to learn more about what was going on and not take the word of America’s biggest liar.  Tens of millions of Americans from across the spectrum of races, religions, and ethnic groups will go along with Trump.  Could his reason for the assassination be his cardinal tenet of religion which is “An eye for an eye” or revenge?  Think of that mob that attacked James Rivington, one of our earliest and best spies.  He could have been killed by people who did not have the right information.  And it was just reported that the United States and General Soleimani had worked together in the past.

It is not the Trump’s role to protect one group of Americans over another but he finds his ways to do just that.  He opens his mouth or tweets and that’s where he goes.  His tax package for the rich smacks of much of the control that precipitated the Revolutionary War as the English had the advantage being connected to the King of England.  The church played a major role as it does today as King Trump courts his evangelicals (including Pastor Guillermo Maldonado in Miami now).   Maldonado is telling his congregants that they will not be deported, which conflicts with the terrorist approach of Donald Trump.  I should be writing soon about Pastor Nelson Moz of El Salvador who attended the Convention of Jesus is King in Miami (Moz was on 60 Minutes recently talking about the gangs of El Salvador). 

I later watched Trump and his evangelicals where Pastor Maldonado spoke that Trump lifted 6 million people off of food stamps by getting 6 million jobs.  There are about 40 million people that receive food stamps and the best information that I found was that yes about 6 million were removed from receiving food stamps.  Pastor Maldonado’s talk fails to take into account the probability that children may be affected as well.  And the states that passed the new legislation require 20 hours of labor from those people.  Most of what I read about poverty in America is that Trump is making things worse.

The matching up of the six million for both groups is certainly not the work of God since it is false information to prop up evangelical support.  Also we know that to get out of poverty, people in poor paying jobs have to work three jobs in most states.  The pastor is in a state of confusion and his congregation should be notified at once.  Also keep in mind that SNAP numbers had been falling by 2 million each year before Trump took office.  So people should not fall for evangelical falsehoods.  It is known that Trump’s trumpeting of his accomplishments including this one date back to the Election of 2016 and not when Trump, unfortunately, took office on January 20, 2017.  I found this posting on the website of the AARP “The president regularly, inaccurately points to changes in economic numbers starting at the 2016 election, discounting the last few months of President Barack Obama’s second term. In reality, 3.6 million people — not nearly 5 million people — have stopped receiving SNAP benefits since Trump took office.”

I knew a Puerto Rican pastor in the Bronx whose church by that time had helped about 250 people pass the G.E.D. test and it that meeting influenced the borough president of the Bronx at that time (the poorest county in America).  My point about Pastor Maldonado simply put is this, If another pastor did the things that Maldonado’s church is doing but also helped 1,000 people earn their high school equivalency (especialmente en español).  I know from studies of statistics that with the large Hispanic population in Florida that taking the test in Spanish has been underutilized.

It is clear to me that Trump is desperate.  His move to kill Soleimani should result in people demanding that he step down now, even before the Senate votes (if that will happen).  This critical moment made me think of the readings that told me about General Douglas Mac Arthur and how he was named the Supreme Commander in Japan.  The general took an intensely volatile situation and brought in food for the Japanese to eat.  He did not continually create obstacles for people as Trump always does. 

Even the Jewish people have a new obstacle to face since the Iranians will take their vengeance out on people they consider enemies.  And this assassination could have would have been prevented even by the first groups of White House appointees.  There is lots of information in Bob Woodward’s book FEAR about how aides were keeping Trump from making horrible decisions.  And this is not about Venezuela, it’s Iran with all its threats against Jews.

And with the corruption of people around him right now, the moment is dangerous and we have to be on higher alert than the police will advise.  I should also tell you that a rabbi wrote to me recently and suggested that we “scare” the anti-Semites as a way to protect our people.  Watch the Iranians now carefully and tell me that Jews should support Trump after what we have witnessed in Jersey City, Monsey, Brooklyn, and other places.  And it is Trump who bankrupted the Iranian deal.  Things are getting progressively worse, if I can use that word here.   And now Mike Pence chimes in that Soleimani was connected with 9-11 and there is no factual basis for that.

We also have to know more about the internal dealings of the Iranian hierarchy.  Will the general’s replacement be more or less aggressive than his deceased predecessor.  That kind of information should be in the hands of American intelligence which I want to know right now.  Today.  I have already begun to share information about Reagan’s attack on Qaddafi which deceived Americans into thinking that it was a major lesson which it was not.  Things continued to get worse.  It’s the old adage “the more things change the more they stay the same.”

Is honesty telling me and the American people that Trump is right and did the right thing to protect America?

And with the big rally about to take place in New York City that I receive alerts about, I have this to share.  Over a year ago, I wrote in Jewish Business News in Israel “If the Christian and Muslim worlds do not spread the right messages around the world, the score will always not be in our favor and in our safety. The Iron Curtain did not protect Jews well and now that the Iron Curtain has fallen, Jews are more fearful again. The France that promised equality for everyone under Napoleon Bonaparte gave us the Dreyfus Affair and then the roundup of Jews in Paris at the Velodrome D’Hiver. And now again problems. No wall or curtain keeps out anti-Semitism.”  The title of the article is Uniting Jews to Fight Anti-Semitism and the kind of unity is not there and probably will not be there after the march.  And believe me when I learned about anti-Semitic acts in New York City I contacted people who were involved in communities and government.  Nothing happened!  I would like to see all Jews around the world read that article.
