  • NYC Cabbie Tells Jewish Passenger 'All Jews Must Die'

    Any Jew so stupid as to choose to live in a city where they can't be armed deserves whatever happens to them as they have allowed themselves to be stripped of their natural law right to self defense.

    ...[A]nyone want to bet she voted for the present commie mayor of Neu Yuk Shity?

    Although your points have validity in general, I'm not sure if this lady is a NYC resident. The fact mentioned in the story - that she was staying in a hotel - would probably mean that she was from out of town.

    The driver also left the meter on during the entire exchange and the argument that ensued afterwards over his behavior, she alleged - turning a $5 cab ride into a $30 nightmare.

    That's how a Muslim gets a 500% tip from an infidel. (There's an Arabic word for justifying that kind of extortion of a dhimmi in accordance with Sharia.)

    Sebrow later called 9-1-1, but was told merely to pay the driver and issue a complaint with the Taxi & Limousine Commission, she said. An NYPD police spokesman noted that an officer had replied to the complaint at the scene, but deemed Sebrow "combative" in interactions with police.

    "Combative" in interactions with police? My guess is that there was no physical altercation between this decent woman and the cops. This "combative" description seems like a cop-out (pardon the pun) by the police who have no intention of bringing charges against the Islamic cabbie, all too aware of the lay of the land under the DeBlasio regime.

    Complaint with the Taxi and Limousine Commission? DeBlasio controls that as well, so that also would be futile.

    Now why the heck isn't the name of the Muslim cab driver mentioned in the article? Could he have gotten away without even being identified?

    I've searched every where and looked at numerous sites that give information on stats for total book sales. Apparently, it is closely held information that stays hidden so that folks at NYT can publish 'best seller' lists to push their favorite authors with no validity.

    I wouldn't deny that the NYT Best Seller list is politically biased to some extent, but I've been surprised on occasion when conservative themed books by known conservative authors make their list as well.

    I know this not from reading the Slimes or their web sites, but by looking around Barnes and Noble Book Stores, who have a running policy of tagging books as "NYT Bestseller" which triggers discounts on them. (I've also heard stories about Barnes and Noble stores placing popular conservative-themed books in locations making it difficult for customers to find them, or not carrying such books at all.)

    Mapes' book selling for 65 cents on Amazon currently? LOL!!! Apparently it was pretty much a financial flop, so now some rich lefty in Hollywood is trying to make up the hit she took after the "Bush was AWOL" hoax by giving her a nice film contract. In those circles, it's thought of as a political donation in kind.

    Does anyone out there familiar with Israeli politics have any idea as to whether the poll cited has any credibility?

    Could it be that the poll was paid for by the Democrat operatives from US interfering in the Israeli electoral process?

    By using that term "Madistan," do you imply there's a large enough Muslim presence in the city to make Islamic radical activity something to be winked at by law enforcement? Same attitude as is common now in western Europe?

    It’s based on the 2006 book Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and the Privilege of Power by Mary Mapes, the discredited CBS producer. Mapes documents and defends Rather’s 2004 attempts to use the forged “Killian documents” to portray former President George W. Bush as someone who shirked duty in Vietnam.

    Was curious how the disgraceful, disgusting BS artist Mary Mapes had been doing in terms of her career as a journalist, since she humiliated herself by publicly admitting her collaboration with Rather in "Bush was AWOL" hoax. One might think that she'd have moved on to a new job with another leftist media outlet, MSNBC perhaps.

    Does anyone know how many copies Mapes' book (defending her sleazy plot against Bush and his presidential campaign) sold? My guess is not very many. Now the left wants double down for her by creating a film version of the story?

    If any film is to be boycotted it's this one!!!

  • Cuccinelli Endorses Convention Of The States

    No matter what Congress would like to do to influence or attempt to ‘control’ the convention, they have no authority to do so. The convention can ignore anything Congress ‘says’ about the convention.

    Correct. As stated in Mark Levin's book, "The Liberty Amendments," Congress's role in such a scenario would be purely ministerial. It is obligated to call the convention "at the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several states." But Congress can propose one of two methods of ratification of any amendment(s) that such a constitutional convention may propose.

    The relevant passages in Article V are:

    The Congress,...on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which...shall be valid, to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress...

    There are no procedures specified in the Constitution as to how delegates to such a constitutional convention might be chosen, nor as to the procedures to be employed by the convention once it is assembled. Hence, there is a concern among some that such a convention might get out of control and propose amendments outside the scope of the issues it had been called to address.

    This isn't the first time that US Dummycrats have been intruding into Israeli elections by targeting Bibi Netanyahu. During the Clinton years, they were successful (from their point of view) in defeating Netanyahu and replacing him with their lapdog, Ehud Barak. (IIRC, none other than James Carville was involved in that effort.) Let's hope and pray that they don't succeed again.

    This time their animosity against Natanyahu is even worse, as evidenced by the recent Obama tantrum over Netanyahu being invited to speak to Congress.

    The last thing the RATS will do is upset their Jewish donors.

    Don't think that even most of the current Jewish donors to the 'Rats would be considered pro-Israel, and certainly the vast majority have absolutely no love for Netanyahu. No, the current crop of Jewish donors to the 'Rats are more interested in supporting "Osama" Obama's perverse agenda than Israel's very survival. Those 'Rat Jewish donors who really care about Israel would have no choice but to have gotten off the Obama bandwagon by now.

    Therefore, those Jewish 'Rat donors who still remain would (with perhaps a handful of exceptions) have no qualms about 'Rat Congresscritters not attending the Netanyahu address to Congress. Furthermore, few would even notice those absences because no roll call will be taken and you can bet that the MSM won't be inclined to name the absentees.

    Yes, Obama surely seems to hate the nation of Israel.

    As for Jews in general, he detests politically conservative and Republican Jews, who tend to be the most pro-Israel. But he seems friendly to leftist Jews - as long as they remain servile to his causes - and still has a good number of them in high positions in his administration.

    I'm not all that aware of how close Silver is to Israel or specifically Netanyahu, but that could be one possible reason why Silver is being targeted.

    He won’t go away for long. He’s a democrat. He will keep low for a while, then make a comeback, and rise within the ranks of the democrat party.

    Too old to make a comeback IF he is imprisoned.

    It is surprising that the Obama-Holder Justice Dept. is prosecuting a prominent 'Rat politician on corruption and tax-evasion charges. Although we are led to believe that the New York Southern District US Attorney is the key figure in the prosecution, it is likely that the case against Silver had to be cleared by Holder and Obama. So the question is why would this administration be acting out of character in going after Silver? Did Silver do something for which his fellow Democrats in Washington would seek revenge on him?

    Heydrich didn’t die right away. Two assassins wounded him and he died as a result of infection some time later.

    Probably, the reason Heydrich died was his deep-seated racism. He wouldn't let the Czech doctors treat him because according to his Nazi ideology, they were of an inferior race.

    BTW, I believe that today was designated International Holocaust Remembrance Day because it's the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz (by the Soviets, the lesser of the two evils at the time).

    The Cubs should have a day in his honor early in the season — and schedule a doubleheader.

    Maybe so, but scheduled doubleheaders in the last few decades in major league baseball have become as rare as hen's teeth. The main reason is that the owners have to squeeze every last nickel out of their customers in order to cover the insane salaries they pay their players.

    I don't know if Banks would protest the lack of scheduled doubleheaders if he were playing today. It wouldn't be politically correct from either the players' union or the owners' point of view.

    justiceseeker93 to BluesDuke; All
    Banks got his first taste of major league level baseball playing for the Kansas City Monarchs, the Negro Leagues team that also yielded forth Jackie Robinson a few years earlier. He was so happy just to play the game that it took his teammates' prodding to convince him to leave for the Cubs in 1953. It took an unexpected injury to the Cubs' other black player at the time, Glen Baker, to make Banks the first black man to wear a Cub uniform in a starting lineup.

    Kind of doubt that Negro League baseball was on the same level as the major leagues by 1953, because the best Negro League players had already gone to the majors by then. It was six years, almost seven, after Jackie Robinson came to the Dodgers when Banks arrived with the Cubs in September 1953. The Negro Leagues would soon fade into history because their best players were swallowed up by "organized baseball."

    Also, the other black player with the Cubs at the time was GENE Baker, NOT Glen Baker. Gene Baker, though he did not have a Hall of Fame career by any standard, did one thing Banks never did: he played on a world championship team (1960 Pirates).

    Sorry to hear about the passing of Ernie Banks, though I first knew about it last Friday.

    He was a true Hall of Fame level player and, from what I hear, a very nice guy.

    However, I'd like to quibble with the author of the posted article on a couple of statistical points:

    Lest you think Banks was just another swatter aided and abetted by the park he first dubbed the Friendly Confines, be advised that he hit a mere 68 more home runs at home than on the road during his major league career. He also defied the traditional platoon splits: he retired with 2,584 hits, and two thirds of those came at the expense of right-handed pitchers, including about two thirds of his home runs.

    A "mere" 68 more home runs more at home than on the road? Well, 68 is more HRs than Banks or anyone else ever hit in a single season without the aid of steroids, so it is a significant number.

    Two thirds of his hits came against right-handed pitchers? Nothing strange about that, since I'd venture a guess that MORE THAN two thirds of his at-bats came against right-handed pitchers, simply because there are that many more right handers than left-handers and Banks played every day.

    BTW, I didn't realize that Banks was the first black player ever to play for the Cubs. I was under the impression that Gene Baker held that honor, but I looked it up and Banks in fact made his first appearance three days before Baker. Banks and Baker went on to become the Cubs' "double play combination" for several years.

    Kaufman, now 87, was a 'walking corpse' on April 29 1945 when U.S. Army soldier Gillespie, 89, marched in with his comrades to liberate the charnel house that was the Dachau concentration camp near Munich.

    Gillespie, a machine gunner with the 42nd 'Rainbow Division,' moved to block 11 of the infamous complex which was the first camp built by the Nazis to house its enemies in 1933.

    Very touching story!

    I don't want to dampen the joy of this reunion, but I am interested in checking out the historical accuracy of it.

    I know that the 42nd Rainbow Division was indeed at Dachau about this time, because my dad was in the 42nd, and took some revolting photos of the camp that he brought home with him and would show to me when I was a youngster.

    But in my reading on WWII, I've never seen the Rainbow Division get any specific mention for liberating Dachau, whereas other units have. Then again, I'm not sure of April 29, 1945 (one day before Hitler's suicide), as the accepted date of the liberation; IIRC, it is generally said to have occurred a few days earlier.

    If there are any historians - professional or amateur - who can clear this up, please let me know.

    I think the first Bush started the muslim integration.

    I wouldn't blame it specifically on Bush41. The skids were greased by the infamous Kennedy brothers' immigration bill in 1965, which tilted the origin of immigrants away from European countries and toward the Third World. It was signed into law by none other the mastermind of the "Great Society, Lyndon Baines Johnson.

    In the last three years alone, 300,000 Muslims immigrated to the United States. And that’s just the beginning.

    This is not such a recent phenomenon. It's been going on for decades, though of course it has accelerated with a pro-Islamist Obama in the White House.

    If you look at it from historical and legal perspective, it's part of the migration of Third World immigrants into the US that was greatly enhanced by the Kennedy brothers' immigration law of 1965. Add that to the election of a president who most probably doesn't satisfy the constitution's natural born citizen requirement (IF he is a citizen at all), who (along with congressional allies) likes porous borders, and who embraces the Muslim world, and this result is hardly surprising.

    Furthermore, the incoming Muslims give the 'Rat party another expanding demographic constituency group to which to pander for as long as legitimate elections are contested. So in the short term, the nearsighted 'Rat strategists are thrilled while the Muslim time bomb ticks away.

    Yes, I knew that from the time of his mayoral candidacy in 2013. The presumption here is that he changed his name for purely political reasons - much better to run in NYC with an Italian name than with a German name - since he had planned a career in leftist NYC electoral politics from a very young age.

    Also knew about his trip to Nicaragua in support of the Sandanistas during the Reagan years. But the honeymoon in Cuba is news to me. Color his biography RED.

    Jeff Siegel, writer of the posted article, is way off the wall himself in ripping into Sen. Marco Rubio in this vicious manner. What Siegel never mentions in his piece is the suffering and oppression that Rubio's own family experienced in Cuba at the hands of the Castro regime, a predicament which caused his parents and many other decent Cuban people to escape Cuba by coming to the US under dire circumstances. Rubio's hatred of the Castro regime is well-founded: it's in his DNA, as is his sharp opposition to Obama's new moves vis-à-vis Cuba. Yet Siegel callously neglects this history as if it didn't happen.

    Yes, what you are saying is a political axiom: people advocating for less government, who comprise the majority of the "Tea Party" type grassroots Republicans, tend to be more difficult to "herd" into a massive single advocacy group, simply because they tend to be individualists.

    Did Sandra Fluck actually run for office? Never heard about that. For which office and where did she run?

    Good choice, but I'm not sure if he's interested.

    We have to get behind ONE conservative candidate EARLY in the process to avoid a repeat of '08 and '12!

    Michelle Malkin hits the bullseye here and, judging from their shows yesterday, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin agree strongly with her misgivings about the Jeb Bush candidacy.

    Of course, the GOP has nominated establishment types in the last two presidential election cycles and both nominees have gone down to Obama in the general elections (if you believe that the reported vote totals were anywhere near truthful, especially in the 2012 race). Seems as if the one of the problems for the grassroots conservative wing of the Party in 2012 in the primary season was that there were several attractive candidates who split that vote vs. the one viable establishment candidate (Romney). That split among the conservative candidates, combined with the unfortunate "winner take all" rules for apportioning delegates in many state primaries, combined also with allowing 'Rats to cast ballots in some states, gave Romney a large advantage.

    The rules for the 2016 primary season will undoubtedly favor the establishment again. But the key for the grassroots "Tea Party" wing in the 2016 primaries will be to get behind a single candidate. That's the only way to beat the biased system and nominate an unabashed conservative not afraid to fight against amnesty for illegals and to fight tooth and nail for repeal of Obamacare, lock, stock, and barrel. Such a candidate would beat the 'Rats decisively in the general election.

    Jeb Bush isn't that candidate!

    The Irish are a wonderful people who have given much to humanity and I’m shocked that something like this could be going on in Ireland.

    Yes, some Irish are wonderful people, but remember that the Irish government never officially entered WWII against the Nazis, mostly because of their (justifiable) historical animus against the Brits. But there was also a pro-Nazi faction in Ireland at the time.

    Perhaps someone can tell us how many Arab Muslims have immigrated to Ireland. That might be the influence that is sparking this new wave of anti-Semitism. It may not be many, but remember that Ireland has a small population, with a sizable proportion having immigrated out in recent decades. So it wouldn't take too many Arab newcomers to give them political clout and thereby get the government to wink at their vile crimes, as has been the case in quite a number of other western European countries, especially France.

    The author of this posted article is right on target to highlight the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments in Western Europe, but he is remiss in not even mentioning the Arab Moslem immigration to Europe, which is a very significant factor in the big picture.

    I don’t recognize “hate crimes”. That’s a neologism that the left made up in order to undermine the concept of equal protection of the laws.

    I understand where you are coming from there. Ideally, there should be no such phrase as "hate crime" in the law books. If a crime happens to be motivated by hate, it should be considered as an exacerbating factor at sentencing after conviction.

    But in the real world, in the New York criminal code, "hate crime" is a legitimate term, and that's what I was referring to. Unfortunately, unless this dead perp had friends who aided him in this, we will never see a legal proceeding in this case where the motivation will be made public.

    No hate crime here! /S

    Obviously, it was a hate crime (although the Sharptons and Jacksons and others in their crowd can't conceive of black racism and anti-Semitism). But it could also be considered a terror attack. We possibly will never know, but the perp could have been influenced by the Palestinian terror attack in a Jerusalem synagogue a few weeks ago ("copy cat" crime?).

    The National Football League and its Commissar Goodell: the epitome of crony capitalism. They don't believe in or practice free enterprise, but rather big government is their essential partner. And they have the gall to call themselves a "non-profit." No wonder they are almost all Democrats!

    Just about the same can be said about MLB, NBA, NHL, etc.

    The attacker died after being shot by police as he was being treated for his injuries at Kings County Hospital.

    In all probability, an honest error on the part of the Israeli reporter writing the posted story. More likely, the perp was shot, then taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries and was pronounced dead there.

    Why was he shot by police as he was being treated for his injuries? Seems kinda cruel?

    Yes, I noticed that as well. I think it was an error by the Israeli writer. From what I heard in a radio report, the perp was shot by police in or near the Chabad facility. My guess is that he was then taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, where he was pronounced dead.

    I wouldn't like to think of the riots that would be touched off if he were shot by police in the hospital. It would probably be a repeat of Crown Heights c. 1991.

    To the Jewish people who vote democrat this is what happens.

    The victim, from what I gather, was a Hasidic (ultra-religious) Jew. This group has voted predominantly Republican is presidential elections over the last several decades. Of course, I couldn't tell you how the particular individual who was injured votes, and it's not relevant to the incident. His attacker wasn't interested.

    What is relevant, though, is that black Americans are statistically more likely to be anti-Semitic than any other racial/ethnic/nationality group in the country, other than Arabs. The dead perp is an extreme example of this reality.

    Of course Gallup, as with all lefty news and polling organizations, doesn't quite tell the truth in their headline. As they almost always do, they claim to be surveying "Americans." But in checking out their site regarding their methodology, the polling was merely done be random telephone numbers, so they undoubtedly reached some alien respondents. There was apparently no screening for American citizenship, yet the question of party identification should be a question for citizens only.

    As usual with the left, they don't give a darn about American citizenship regarding participation in the American political and public opinion process. Allowing aliens into their poll and claiming them as "Americans" is dishonest on the part of Gallup. We know their purpose: to negate the meaning of American citizenship so as to ultimately allow aliens to wreck the integrity of our electoral system by participating in it unlawfully. But until and unless we bring their tactics to public scrutiny, they will continue with their deceptions.

    BTW, their poll result shows the GOP leading the 'Rats in party ID by a mere one point, which is probably slightly higher when aliens are weeded out as they should have been.

    If a third of black voters start defecting, [the Democrats] are finished.

    Won't take anywhere near that percentage. If only 10% of black voters went from 'Rat to GOP, putting the black GOP vote around 20% - and the fraud machine was stymied somewhat - the 'Rats would lose so many statewide races that their chances of electing presidents and controlling either house of Congress would be slim to none. (Getting tough on illegal immigration would be an issue that would resonate in the black community, but it probably won't happen with the current RINO bunch in Washington.)

    You cannot look at the incident in Missouri; another incident in Cleveland, Ohio; and another incident in New York City all happening in the space of weeks and act like there's not a problem."

    Among numerous other flaws, DeBlasio seems have a lack of fundamental understanding of probability and statistics.

    With over three hundred million people in the country, millions of black youths and hundreds of thousands of police officers, three fatal shootings of black youths by police officers in a matter of weeks (which I presume is what he's referring to here) may just be an unusual chronological clustering of such events, and those events may have received an unusual degree of national publicity. The more important statistic is the total number of such incidents over a longer period of time nationally. (Not trying to imply that the circumstances are alike in each case.) I saw a figure of 100+ deaths of black people (of all ages) killed by law enforcement nationally over an entire year, whereas at the same time 300+ whites were killed under these circumstances.

    So although blacks were killed at a rate somewhat higher than whites by law enforcement - when considering the percentage of each in the general population - one can't logically deduce from these numbers that black youths are specifically targeted, as DeBlasio seems to have done, in concluding "there is a problem." Rather, DeBlasio is trying to take advantage of the recent well-publicized cases to gain browning points (no pun intended) with the NYC black community. He sees himself as the white Al Sharpton.
