Not all Jews are Einsteins…or the Rebbe
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Jack Engelhard

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/17/2017 5:03:00 AM

There are a thousand reasons why I loved the Rebbe. Alongside his warmth and Torah wisdom, he was also sagely up to the minute on politics. Somewhere on YouTube (can’t find it now) I heard him talking about the “peace process” – the one from about 20 years ago – and decrying it with such passion and precision that it made you wonder why others can’t see things so clearly. I guess it’s because the Rebbe was the Rebbe just like Einstein was Einstein. The Rebbe said (quoting from the top of my head): “Israel is ready to give up holy Land

Good take on the latest Ayrab treachery, with dependable assistance from the snakes in the UN. And, FTA: ´Which always means the Jews give and the Arabs take and get no thanks and no peace. That’s the peace process in a nutshell.´ Kinda sounds like the Rs and Ds version of bipartisanship in our gov´t, doesn´t it?

"The Rebbe"? Not Jewish, never lived in NYC, too far out of that loop to even know what this refers to. Ultimately, don´t care much, what this reference is.

I checked out The Rebbe here: http://www.chabad.org/therebbe/article_cdo/aid/244372/jewish/The-Rebbe-A-Brief-Biography.htm

I read all of Isaac Bashevis Singer´s books years ago--wonderfully entertaining and interesting--and he reminds me of those characters a bit.

#2, the Rebbe, refers to Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, pretty much the key founder of the Chabad Lubavitch movement in Judaism.

They are orthodox, very Republican, and quite open to Nazarines and bringing back lost "reform" Jews to Judaism.

Wonderful man. Great teacher.

#4, Ok, thanks. I figured it was some sort of inside Judaism reference. Since I am not Jewish and have never lived in an area with a high concentration, I am fairly ignorant. I am somewhat used to the NYC-centric TV shows rattling off various Jewish and Yiddish phrases and references which just go over my head.

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., stepped up his own rhetoric as President Trump continued his one-sided feud with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a move that has put the president at odds with Republicans in Congress. ´If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay,´ Graham warned Thursday, during an interview with CNN. ´This is not draining the swamp, what he´s interjecting is turning democracy upside down,´ the South Carolina Republican added. Members of Trump´s own party have voiced their displeasure with the president throughout the week, as he´s talked smack on the attorney general during interview and on Twitter.

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

TRENTON, N.J. — Officials have now closed 15 beaches in New Jersey because of elevated bacteria levels. The state Environmental Protection Department found high levels of bacteria Wednesday. Seven beaches in Atlantic City alone were closed. The series of shutdowns come after three beaches were closed for water quality issues Tuesday. Environmental officials say heavy rains that result in runoff water containing chemicals and bird droppings is responsible for the spike in bacteria. Atlantic County public health officer Patricia Diamond tells the Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/2u15YUp ) heavy rainfall on consecutive days puts a burden on the ocean. Diamond adds that bodies

DOZENS of Metropolitan Police officers are struggling to control a ´riot´ in east London. Video circulating on Twitter shows a large group of police lining up on Church Road, Leyton. Mark Rivas posted a video on the social media site with the caption: “Just happened outside in Church Road #ChurchRoadRiots.” Mr Rivas, who witnessed the event from his cousins house, told Express.co.uk that he saw “hundreds” of youths aged around 18 to 20 years old gathering on the street.

President Trump scolded a female reporter who asked him about his three tweet announcement this morning to ban transgender servicemembers. ´She´s very rude,´ Trump said, as he entertained more than 100 American Legion boys and Auxiliary girls at an afternoon White House Rose Garden event. Trump blindsided his Pentagon Wednesday morning when he announced the policy change, with the White House saying later that he had made the decision yesterday. At Wednesday´s press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said upon Trump´s decision, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was immediately informed, along with the rest of the president´s national security team.

RAF Typhoon and Tornado jets destroy an
ISIS warehouse packed with explosives
and kill dozens of jihadi fighters
Daily Mail [UK], by Dave Burke & Reuters    Original Article

A warehouse full of homemade explosives set to be used in terrror attacks by ISIS in northern Iraq has been destroyed in an RAF operation. In the past week, British air force pilots have also wiped out dozens of jihadists in Iraq and Syria, with sniper posts and terrorist positions targeted in strikes in Raqqa, the capital of ISIS´s ´caliphate´. The warehouse was struck after intelligence officers identified the bomb factory near Hawijah in the Kirkuk province of Iraq last Wednesday. The RAF has said that ´large quantities´ of explosives were being stored by the jihadist group, which earlier this month lost

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.
