The Holocaust Continues - In France

This sounds sickeningly familiar:  "There have been 11 anti-Semitic murders in France since 2000 but the killing of an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor in her Paris home which echoed that of another elderly Jewish woman in Paris, has left the community in France particularly shocked and scared.

On Tuesday, two people were charged with the brutal murder of Mireille Knoll, an 85-year-old French Jewish woman, who was repeatedly stabbed and whose body was then set alight in a crime being treated as anti-Semitic by French police.

Knoll, who managed to flee a mass roundup of Jews in Paris during World War II, was found dead Friday in her apartment in the east of the French capital, where she lived alone.

This violent murder which has echoes of a similar case from April 2017 in which Sarah Halimi was also killed in her own home in the same 11th arrondissement of Paris."

The Holocaust never ended for these brave women, and for so many other survivors.

The Nazis who murdered Madame Knoll should be executed as quickly as possible.

RINOcare

What a betrayal by the Republicans! Trump ended up passing that horrendous spending bill he had threatened to veto, and now we are finding out what's in it, as Nancy Pelosi once said. If he had had better advisors in the White House, and if the Republican "leadership" had done its job, this bill would have been vetoed. Better have the government shut down than pass such a liberal monstrosity.

Once again, unsurprisingly, the Republicans have just self-destructed and thrown away the power they won in 2016. What a terrible shame.

Renaissance Dances

I heard this music on the radio today and liked it instantly. It's five Renaissance dances by Giorgio Mainerio, someone I'd never heard of before.

I was glad to hear that three people I admire have joined the Trump Administration: John Bolton, and Victoria Toensing & Joseph DiGenova.

The Lack of Decent Behavior

Dr. Walter Williams hits the nail on the head when he writes, " Our problem is a widespread decline in moral values that has nothing to do with guns. That decline includes disrespect for those in authority, disrespect for oneself, little accountability for anti-social behavior and a scuttling of religious teachings that reinforced moral values." Indeed, it wasn't always like this.

Hillary Clinton: The Sore Loser Tour

From National Review: "Hillary Clinton reverted to a familiar pattern in attempting to explain her 2016 election loss during a speaking event over the weekend, arguing that Trump won white women because of their tendency to vote according to the preferences of their male family members and professional superiors. Democrats 'do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married white women and part of that is an identification with the Republican party and an ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,' Clinton argued at the conference in Mumbai, India."  Where does she get this stuff from?

Richard Nixon, who knew about losing, said, "You've got to learn to survive a defeat. That's when you develop character."  She hasn't developed it yet, and making excuses in a foreign country certainly won't help.

Farbissener Farrakhan

Louis Farrakhan is back in the news, this time claiming that we Jews control the FBI.  This career anti-Semite is now 84 years old, and you'd think by now he could find something else to talk about, like Social Security or old age pensions. Let's just hope that when he finally does see those "divine spaceships", they will all be manned by Jews!

Morons and the Matzoh Factory

Here's some Passover tsouris that just infuriated me when I read about it.  "Several dozen residents of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, are demonstrating this week against the Satmar community and its Matzah factory, which they say is causing severe air pollution that harms their health and quality of life.  With Passover only three weeks away, Satmar's matzah factory is working diligently to provide the ultra-Orthodox community of Brooklyn and the surrounding area with strictly kosher matzah (hand-baked unleavened bread), but the non-Jewish residents of the neighborhood have voiced serious complaints." 

How's this for petty whining?  This has to be a first: blaming the Jews for matzoh-related pollution!
