  • Fulop, on Facebook, addresses spate of violence (Jersey City Mayor)

    The Jersey Journal ^ | November 25, 2015
    JERSEY CITY — Mayor Steve Fulop broke his silence last night on the violence that has plagued the city's southern neighborhoods, leaving five dead in the last two weeks. Fulop bypassed the media and took his message straight to Facebook, posting a lengthy message last night calling the most recent violence a "setback" after a quiet summer. "Ultimately, it's my responsibility and we will be successful — we are working hard and I am confident we will get this right," he wrote.

    New York Times ^ | November 24, 2015 | By The Editorial Board
    Student protesters at Princeton performed a valuable public service last week when they demanded that the administration acknowledge the toxic legacy of Woodrow Wilson, who served as university president and New Jersey governor before being elected to the White House. He was an unapologetic racist whose administration rolled back the gains that African-Americans achieved just after the Civil War, purged black workers from influential jobs and transformed the government into an instrument of white supremacy. The protesters’ top goal — convincing the university to rename the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the residential complex known as...

    The Clinton campaign says Senator Hillary Clinton may have “misspoke” recently when she said she had to evade sniper fire when she was visiting Bosnia in 1996 as first lady. “I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia,” she said last week. “There was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady. “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down...

    Over the past several months there has been a public discussion about what to do with the mass migration of Syrian refugees traveling to the West, fleeing from violence. The recent attacks in Paris have raised concerns about ISIS operatives posing as innocents fleeing from violence. Some leaders in Europe and the United States have seized upon this heinous incident to reverse the decision to welcome Syrian refugees. While these positions are understandable, they are also misguided. In fact, welcoming Syrian refugees into America helps our nation in the long fight against ISIS by undermining the terrorist group's recruitment message....

    Dallas, TX Mayor Mike Rawlings spoke Saturday on MSNBC, saying that ISIS wants the United States to "demonize" the Syrian refugees, the reason being that ISIS does not represent Islam. "ISIS wants us to demonize these Syrian refugees, want us to alienate these children," Rawlings said. "We have got to build a coalition of Middle Eastern states and we need to reach out, they're Muslims and we have got to use the words carefully to show them that we care about them. ISIS is no more Islamic than the Nazi senior staff was Christian. so we have got to differentiate...

    The second Democratic debate hosted by CBS drew 8.5 million viewers, according to ratings from Nielsen. It was the lowest rated primary debate this campaign season from either party, though it was the most watched show on Saturday night for broadcast television. The first Democratic debate, hosted by CNN, brought in a record-breaking 15.3 million viewers. The previous record for a Democratic debate was in 2008, which saw 10.7 million viewers for a debate on ABC. CBS also garnered 1.2 million live streams of the debate across several platforms. Broadcast networks have a far wider reach than cable, since anyone...

Zionist Union/Labor MK Stav Shaffir and Haaretz columnist Ari Shavit were speaking at a plenary meeting of the Union for Reform Judaism last week, which they both used as a platform to attack the current Israeli government, and joined with Union of Reform Judaism President Eric Yoffie in calling on American Jews to be more vocal...

The effort was expected to continue through 1 a.m. on Friday,but endedafter speaking for only 18 minutes and40 seconds, according to MSNBC. It turns out the Republican senator from Kentucky spoke against the budget bill only until the time the Senate was to vote on the deal. The Senate would have allowed Paul to continue speaking until midnight, but only if he didn't sit down or use the restroom, a physically exhausting feat if nothing else. At midnight,...

But what if there were a party whose economic case rested on undermining the most successful, poverty-reducing, prosperity-creating idea ever known to mankind? What would history say about that? No one seems too troubled that Democrats ratchet up the collectivist rhetoric every election. We mock conservatives for red-baiting and throwing around the word socialism. And lets face it, the term is overused and misunderstood. But as we...

The presidential candidate has described the time he spent on an Israeli collective farm as a formative experience. Not surprisingly, many Israelis have been wondering which exact kibbutz had such an impact on the Jewish socialist and rising star of the U.S. presidential campaign.
