Leftist Jews say FIRE Nazi white supremacist Steve Bannon – AGAIN

 “Fire Bannon – Again” echoed through the night as the usual suspects gathered on Fifth avenue: #JewishResistance ,#WeFiredBannon, #EndTheOccupation, #IfNotNow

Nov 12, 2017 – 4:30 to 7 pm – outside the famed New York Public Library at 5th Ave and 42nd St.

WHY? “Last year, over 500 members of the #JewishResistance marched to #FireBannon and push rising White Nationalism out of the White House.

Bannon was finally removed from his post as Chief Strategist in the White House: the people fired Stephen Bannon. (That Nazi. White Supremacist) FIRE Bannon AGAIN!”

Their many signs included: “If Not Now – When”, “Which side are you on”,”Just say NO to COLLABORATION”,”Fire Bannon” and “Endless Occupation”.

“On this day (Nov. 12) the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) invited Steve Bannon to speak at their annual gala; attempting to give Bannon a second career pitting U.S. Jews against our Muslim neighbors and rallying support for Israel’s 50-year military Occupation.

#IfNotNow NYC wants  to see Stephen Bannon off to an early retirement. We’ll celebrate the movement,  join in the fight against White Nationalism, the Occupation and call for freedom and dignity for all Palestinians and Israelis.

We must resist all of their attacks on Muslims and Arabs, immigrants, women, people of color, and Jews, both within and outside of the Jewish community.”

Twitter posts, from the LEFT, outside the Grand Central Hyatt:

“Outside the event, held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, some 200 activists of the left-wing American Jewish group IfNotNow held a loud protest. “ZOA has decided to abandon the Jewish people in favor of Steve Bannon,” protestor Eliana Fishman said.” [haaretz.com]

When the people rise up. The power comes down. This’s how the & roll against hate & when nazi white supremacist Steve Bannon shows up in NYC with DEPLORABLE because you blowhard.

Young Jews are blocking the doors of the annual Gala, where Steve Bannon is speaking inside.

And From the RIGHT, Jack Posobiec’s twitter post as Steve Bannon received a standing ovation at ZOA dinner.

BANNON Urges Jews to Join ‘Insurgency’ Against anti-Trump Republicans. “Bannon, who left the White House in August, is now trying to raise money to defeat several sitting Republican senators he says are blocking Trump’s agenda in Washington.

“President Trump needs our back,” Bannon declared. “We’re a nation at war. This war is only going to be won if we bind together and work as partners.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, in his own speech, called for centrism and warned of extremism, “The right has no influence today on college campuses, which are the future leaders of America. [haaretz.com]

And, what about Bannon’s refusal to lunch with a terrorist?

“I refused to attend a lunch meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas because I didn’t want to breathe the same air as a terrorist. I didn’t want to eat lunch with a guy that had the blood of innocent Jewish civilians on his hands. I just don’t.” Steve Bannon  [Breitbart.com]

Professor Dershowitz warned of extremism, particularly pointing to the far-left,

“I think today the hard left is far more dangerous to Israel’s existence and to the safety of the Jewish community.” [haaretz.com]

DNAinfo / Gothamist shut down by CEO : Union busting or Free Enterprise?

On November 6, 2017, the staff of DNAinfo and the Gothamist rallied in NY City Hall Park, in the name of independent journalism. This was after the abrupt shutdown by the owner, founder and CEO, Joe Ricketts. (Ricketts was not only chief executive officer of DNAInfo and Gothamist but also the founder of TD Ameritrade) 

Mayor de Blasio and several city officials expressed support for WGAE’s organizing drive … de Blasio called Ricketts a “coward” for shutting the sites down.

Ricketts shut down all DNAInfo and Gothamist affiliated websites (including DCist and SFist) a week after the National Labor Relations Board conducted a formal vote that resulted in DNAInfo New York and Gothamist employees joining the Writers Guild of America East. The Workers voted to join the union in April, but Ricketts didn’t recognize the union. The NLRB required management to begin collective bargaining with the union. Ricketts shut the sites down instead.” [amsterdam news]”

In September of 2017, Ricketts blogged about why he doesn’t like unions,  “I believe unions promote a corrosive us-against-them dynamic that destroys the esprit de corps businesses need to succeed” which might explain why he would choose to close these businesses before they might fail.”

“Staffers of the now-defunct DNAinfo and Gothamist news sites joined union members, elected officials and others at City Hall Park Monday to call out their owner  (CEO, Joe Ricketts) for the company’s sudden shuttering.

The 30 reporters and editors… proudly wearing their NYPD press badges, said the move was devastating to the New York City communities they covered. “This is an attack on the millions of people who depend on our reporting.” …  Ricketts shut down both news outlets — costing 116 reporters and editors around the country their jobs.” [amny]

Is Joe Rickett’s guilty of Union-Busting? Does a business owner have the right to CHOOSE how he spends his capital? Should union thuggery be legal?

Arrived early, so I decided to cover a community center presser that was in process on the steps of City Hall.

This was the birthday of the late Armando Perez, co-founder of Charas/El Bohio.

Today the LES/EV Community celebrated Mayor de Blasio’s announcement to “re-acquire” this building.  deBlasio came through for this community, ‘giving back’ a building (once a school/community center) sold by Giuliani over ten years ago.

“For too long, the old PSD 64/Charas-El Bohio set empty, abandoned, left to rot by an unscrupulous developer only interested in … seeing this beloved landmark destroyed. de Blasio needs to put deeds behind his words; bring this treasured community resource back to its rightful place serving the people of the Lower East Side (LES) and the City of New York.” (Andrew Berman, Exec Dir East Village Community Coalition)

This was a familiar Leftist presser. Home-grown activism. Colorful signs. Handmade (by someone). A papier mache mask (that does not appear to be ‘factory made’). A celebration told through community activism – an out-reach meant for the immigrant community – making them loyal (democrat) party voters.

But, WHERE was the writer guild protest? Oops. It was City Hall PARK, not City Hall steps.

And there they were. The Writers Guild East pro-union presser behind impenetrable barricades. Had to take a walk around the park to join them.

This woman was our HINT: Protest INSIDE Park – HERE.

Once there, i found a sea of press-badges shilling for a “Free Press”.

Surrounded by writers and editors pushing, jockeying for the best spot to film, take pictures, to cheer each other on.

“When the employees unionized around a week ago, DNAinfo reporter Katie Honan told The New York Times that, “No one’s trying to bankrupt anybody.” She added, “We just want to have an ability to negotiate things and not necessarily money.” [Mashable]

Down with rich, greedy capitalists. Union-Busting must be stopped!

YouTube play list of speakers, their names precede the videos:

Lowell Peterson, Exec Dir Writers Guild America East
Scott Stringer , NYC Comptroller

Stringer impressed some with the “novel” idea that the “workers take control”. Run the shop. Create jobs. The greedy business owner has NO RIGHTS. No right to close “their” business. To open their business? Nor run their business. And definitely NO right to CHOOSE to be a non-union shop. On and On…and ON.

Letitia “Tish “James, NYC Public Advocate
Brendan O’Connor (Warning Profanity) Gizmodo (aka Gawker) Media Group

“FUCK Ricketts,” said a writers guild rep Brendan O’Connor. “If you are not organized in your workplace, get organizing. The workers have the power apart from the union, apart from our elected officials. It’s the worker that decides what happens in this town and this country if we use our power. What happened last week is a single event in a decades long war against workers. It is class warfare.”

Ben Fractenberg, DNAinfo & Emma Whitford, the Gothamist

Writers Guild NYC Union Protest – the crowd

Video playlist begins here:

As I left, pushing my way through this tight mob of FREE press aficionados, I emerged to see those on the perimeter, mainly Fast Food union members.

Once their Union Shakedown accomplished its goal, more money in the union coffers, predictably they created FEWER jobs for the workers.

But, this was NOT greed, so say the union bosses. Only business OWNERS are capable of GREED.

Familiar Commie/Socialist rally-mongers were also hanging on the perimeter.

The “red flags” of shakedown cronyism spewed from mouth to ear: Communism, SI! Free Market Capitalism, NO!

UNIONS claim to be “the Davids” fighting the Capitalist Goliath. (ya think?) Power To The People! WORKERS UNITE!

In conclusion, from the pen of Oleg Atbasian, “Shakedown Socialism”.


The six contradictions of socialism in the USA

  1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.
  2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
  3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
  4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

The TRUTH impedes what the complicit, naive “enemedia” desires: “Shakedown Communism“. We have been warned.

United Against Nuclear Iran Summit 2017 – NYC

But first, as the Refuse Fascism Anarchists attempt to create chaos with fake news threats of an EMP attack on November 4th – an attack/ drill supposedly caused by the GOVERNMENT, I offer a link to an important 2011 EMP press conference that addressed our EMP vulnerability; a threat NOT to be taken lightly.

Comprised of former diplomats and lawmakers, UANI is spearheading a global education campaign focused on the risks of doing business with Iran, warning hundreds of international companies that may be contemplating Tehran as a new investment opportunity.

Anti-Zionists Protest Israel Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall – again

October 25th, 2017, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) gave a concert & gala at Carnegie Hall.  This was fantastic, yes?

Nope. These anti-Israel / anti-Zionist groups did not agree.


They organized ANOTHER anti-Israel protest outside Carnegie Hall aimed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel. AGAIN.

Each year, anti-Zionists return to protest the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra [IPO]. (For previous IPO Carnegie Hall protests, follow links to 2011 and 2012.)

Fortunately, their lies and hateful anti-Semitism did NOT go unchallenged.

The Jewish Defence League and other Zionists were there to “Stand Up For Israel”, to “Stop the lies” and “Stop the hate!”


AM YISRAEL CHAI!

Flickr slide show of both sides

DSC_9761 copy

Some anti-Israel protest chants compliments of Adalah NY and the other anti-Zionists.

Protest musical accompaniment- OUTSIDE Carnegie – was provided by the eponymous, Rude Mechanical Orchestra. Facebook.

Adalah, however, remains OFFENDED the IPO representing the State of Israel across the world. “Let the IPO know that apartheid is out of tune.”


“It (the IPO)”, says Adalah, “serves as a cultural ambassador for the State of Israel, playing a public role in the official Israeli propaganda campaign. Brand Israel uses art and music to distract attention from Israel’s human rights ‘abuses’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the ‘Palestinian’ people.”

Adalah claims that, “the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is not an apolitical cultural institution.”

“We (Adalah and other anti-Zionists) are responding to the call from ‘Palestinian’ civil society to boycott cultural institutions that are complicit in Israel’s ‘systematic repression’ of the Palestinian people living under Israeli ‘military occupation’ in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as unequal citizens in Israel or as refugees denied their right of return to their homeland.”

BTW- Adalah (the protest host for the evening) was connected in 2007 to the infamous Intifada NYC T-shirt .


Former Brooklyn Principal, Debbie Almontaser, defended the t-shirts, telling the NY Post that “intifada” meant “shaking off”, that the shirts represented women “shaking off” oppression. …. Peace be upon you ….

And now, the REAL STORY behind the Israel Philharmonic and its ORIGINS:

“Since its inception in 1936, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has been dedicated to presenting exceptional music to audiences in Israel and throughout the world. From its inaugural concert, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, world-renowned soloists and conductors have performed with the IPO.

On December 26, 1936, the Palestine Symphony played its first concert in Tel Aviv under the baton of Arturo Toscanini. A staunch anti-Fascist, the legendary conductor enthusiastically accepted Huberman’s request to join the Symphony as a demonstration against Nazism, declaring, “I am doing this for humanity.”

“The public reception to this inaugural performance was overwhelming, with crowds standing outside near the windows and even climbing on rooftops in an attempt to hear the Symphony. The ovation at the end of the night lasted over 30 minutes.”

 “The IPO is Israel’s foremost cultural ambassador and travels throughout the world, particularly to countries where there is little or no Israeli representation. In some cases, performances of the IPO are the only example of Israel’s existence.”

“The goodwill created by these tours, which included historic visits to Japan, Argentina, Poland, Hungary, Russia, China and India, is of enormous value to the State of Israel.”

Unfortunately, the anti-Israel protests never stop; good-will be damned.

NEXT WEEK, on Thursday, November 2,  I found two more anti-Israel events. FYI: November 2nd, 2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

“At 5:30 pm, outside Israeli Embassy at 42nd St and 2nd Ave, a rally to “protest 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, to protest 100 years of colonization”, hosted by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine . The SJP claims that the Balfour Declaration was the first step toward the objective of political Zionism. [Face Book]

They will gather to protest the continued occupation of “Palestine” by Israeli Zionist forces.”

American Muslims for Palestine – NJ Chapter
Religious Center · Nonprofit Organization
Jews for Palestinian Right of Return

Also, at the United Nations, on November 2, 2017, from 3 PM4:30 PM, “100 yrs of the Balfour Declaration and impact on Palestinians” · Hosted by United Nations Division for Palestinian Rights.

The LIES Never Stop.

“The United Nations Palestinian Rights Committee cordially invites you to a lecture on the Balfour Declaration and the impact it has had on the Palestinian people. The lecture will be delivered by Professor Rashid Khalidi, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and director of the Middle East Institute of Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs in the ECOSOC Chamber of the United Nations Secretariat in New York. It will bring together a broad range of participants, including members of the diplomatic community in New York, UN staff members, representatives of civil society organizations and the general public.”[Face Book]

PROTEST HIRING CEO DAVID MYERS AT CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY

ACTION ALERT!PROTEST THE HIRING OF DAVID MYERS AT THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY – WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2017 [ 5-8 PM ]

Stand with Israel. Say No to BDS.

“Hey hey, ho ho. David Myers has got to go.”

David Myers called the founding of the State of Israel a NAKBA!

“On Wednesday evening, Oct. 18, outside the NYC Center for Jewish History (CJH) , Americans For a Safe Israel/AFSI and JCC Watch.org led a protest against David Myers, the new President and CEO of the CJH.

The protest demonstration at the Center for Jewish History called for the firing of CEO David Myers – a foe of Israel and Jewish history.”

“Over 200 people assembled in front of the stage set up on W. 16th Street to hear speeches from AFSI’s Co-Executive Directors, Helen Freedman and Judy Freedman Kadish, JCCWatch.org President Richard Allen, ZOA’s Liz Berney, AFSI’s Charlie Bernhaut, Concerned Citizen Stewart Cahn, Yom HaShoah Committee Chair Lynn Bursky-Tammam, along with rocking music by the trio of brothers, Pey Dalid.”

The overall message was the following:

“We, the people, the grassroots, are here to speak up for TRUTH. Enough of the lies and falsehoods. Enough of the revisionist history. The time is NOW, as we stand before the Center of Jewish History – the home of five esteemed institutions – that has allowed itself to be trapped in a quagmire. With David Myers as CEO and President of the Center, it becomes the Center of Revised Jewish History, with the Jewish story, the Jewish entitlement – biblical, historic, and legal, lost in the fictions and distortions that he brings with him.

Myers has preached the “inevitable demise of Israel”. How dare he deny our 4000-year-old history, and Hashem’s promise to us that we are his chosen people, to whom he gave the Torah and the Land of Israel? How dare Myers speak about removing Israel as central to Jewish identity?

There is no other people that has always made Jerusalem its central core. In the midst of the joy of the Jewish wedding, the glass is shattered, reminding us of our connection to Yerushalayim.”

“Has David Myers been to the “settlements” in Judea and Samaria? Has he ever been on a trip such as an AFSI Chizuk mission, where we climb the hills of Itamar, Yitzhar, Kedumim, Elon Moreh, Shilo, Eli, and on and on? Has he met the people and seen their homes, schools, work places? If he has, then he knows there is no “occupation” and these are the biblical holy places, and NOT the West Bank. If not, then he must visit them before he condemns them.”

Joining the protest hosted by AFSI and JCC Watch was the peaceful support of the New JDL – NY.

Flickr Slide show

DSC_9449

All were there to support the State of Israel and to peacefully protest the egregious hiring of David Myers as CEO for the CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY. It is an outrage.

“How dare David Myers excuse the evil terrorism of the Arabs which has been going on since the early 1900’s and continues on a daily basis today. He says that it is “frustration” driven. What drivel is that? What humanity is that? Do we excuse mass murderers because they are “frustrated?”

How dare David Myers rewrite Jewish history so that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 is questioned, the Israel victories of 1948 and 1967 are declared disasters, and a case of Israel “conquering” its own land, rather than re-claiming it?

We have to change the trajectory – anti-Israel propaganda against Israel cannot be tolerated – especially in an institution named THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY. The time is NOW!!

What history will David Meyers be teaching those who walk through those doors? What lies and defamations will he be promoting, disguised as historical facts? Will it be the propaganda of J Street, the New Israel Fund, BDS, If Not Now, Open Hillel  and the Academic Advisory Council of Scholars for Israel and Palestine? This is intolerable.

We denounce the evil of such teachings and plead with the Center of Jewish History to purge itself of this infection in its midst – FIRE MYERS – FIRE MYERS – FIRE MYERS!!”

What can YOU do? It is URGENT that all those concerned should CONTACT THE CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS AND ASK,”WHY AREN’T THEY PROTESTING AGAINST DAVID MYERS?”

The five organizations comprising the Center of Jewish History have been silent about David Myers’ ascendancy to the leadership of CJH. We must ask them, WHY?

  • WHY are they silent when Myers believes Israel is an “occupier”?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers is a supporter of Israel’s enemies such as J Street, New Israel Fund and If Not Now?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers sees the Israeli victory of 1948 as the “wound of the Naqba” – Arab disaster?
  • WHY are they silent when Myers believes that “the root cause of BDS is the “occupation” and “West Bank settlements”?

DAVID MYERS MUST RESIGN FROM CJH AND THE ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS AMONG ITS LEADERSHIP MUST BE EXPOSED AND EXPUNGED.

WE MUST NOT ALLOW CJH TO BE TAKEN OVER BY THOSE OPPOSING ISRAEL AND TRYING TO REWRITE JEWISH HISTORY.

CONTACT THE LEADERSHIP OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS AND ASK THEM, WHY?. After all, what’s more important than saving the Jewish Future and protecting Jewish History?

NYC Columbus Day Parade 2017 – the parade and politics (pics and vids)

[twitter.com/staceysager7] [ABC News]

Mayor de Blasio, Gov. Cuomo wade into controversy in city’s Columbus Day Parade

“A torrent of boos rained down on Mayor de Blasio as he walked in the Columbus Day Parade in Midtown Monday. Some New Yorkers at the celebration of the city’s Italian-American heritage were irate that de Blasio is considering removing the iconic statue of Christopher Columbus at Columbus Circle. “ [NY Daily News]

But, what I heard and saw was a lot of happiness, particularly when they saw the Save the Columbus Statue signs.

“The usual suspects have discovered that Christopher Columbus was no 21st century liberal. Of course, that shouldn’t surprise anyone since he lived in a time of empires, slavery, monarchies, and ignorance.
But he rose above his time and literally united the world. Without him there would be no America, no us.

We don’t celebrate Columbus for his failings, including holding once common beliefs which we rightly have come to abhor. We celebrate him for his unique, even heroic, virtues. We celebrate him for having helped make the modern world.” [townhall]

NYC Italian-Americans: Save Columbus Circle Statue!

“They have forgotten what the contributions of different cultures have meant to various societies. There is the bad, as we have seen from history, and as we see now, but there is also the good. If Caucasians are so bad, then why is one section of the world struggling to empty into the Western lands? Do you see any exodus headed elsewhere?” [Facebook]

** 1891 lynchings Italian Americans

In late 19th-century America there was a growing prejudice against Italians, who were immigrating to the American South in large numbers to fill the shortage of cheap labor created by the end of slavery. Sugar planters, in particular, sought workers who were lower paid and more compliant than former slaves; they hired immigrant recruiters who began bringing the Italians to southern Louisiana. In the 1890s, thousands of Italians were arriving in New Orleans each year. Many settled in the French Quarter, which by the early 20th century became known as “Little Sicily.”[22] 

Southern Italians were not considered full-fledged members of the “white race”… Between 1890 and 1910, Sicilians made up less than 4 percent of the white male population, yet were roughly 40 percent of the white victims of southern lynch mobs.[54] ** [The Silent Majority No More]

Italian-Americans fight movement to abolish Columbus Day

Some 35,000 people are expected to march in Monday’s Columbus Day Parade, which will wind up Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 72nd Street, honoring the explorer sent by Spain.

Columbus is celebrated in Latin America, too. A massive monument to the explorer, the Columbus Lighthouse, opened in 1992 in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. Puerto Rico commemorates Discovery Day on Nov. 19, marking the day Columbus landed there. [NY Post]

Ralph Arellanes, chairman of the activist group Hispano Round Table of New Mexico, said that as a Hispanic, he supports Columbus Day. Arellanes also said he doesn’t understand why Italians claim Columbus for themselves when Columbus was sailing for Spain

“It was the marriage of two peoples creating a new people, in a new land,” he said. Though Columbus “wasn’t a saint,” he said, he believes Anglo-Americans like President Andrew Jackson should be held more responsible than the Spanish for the hardships Native Americans faced[NY Post]

Why We Should Celebrate Columbus Day from Osia.org

>

Columbus Day is the ONLY Day recognizing the contributions of 26 million Italian Americans.

“INDIGENOUS : originating or occurring naturally in a particular place is native. “Indigenous Peoples Day” is a FRAUD.”

How did “indigenous peoples” get to America? Conventional wisdom says that “Native” Americans descended from prehistoric hunters who walked from northeast Asia across a land bridge, formed at the end of the Ice Age, to Alaska some 12,000 years ago. American Indians resemble the people of Mongolia, China and Siberia.

Where did the “Native” American Indians come from?
