IRONIC US Says Russian Bombing of Syria will ‘Backfire’

How do they find these people? If it isn’t the warmonger calling the psychopath bloodthirsty eh?! Unless I’m mistaken, the US was about to bomb Syria in 2013 for some reason or another but Congress actually said no to something insane for once.

Now all the previous warmongers who were egging Obama on to not only bomb Syria in 2013, but to also ship weapons to ISIS, will all say that the US is right, that Russia bombing Syria will “destabilize the region” and Putin must not be allowed to show such “aggression”.

Warmongers including my favorite guy Shmuly Yanklowitz, who the last time I talked to the warmonger it was about this very issue in 2013. Now I bet he’ll be mouthing off about how Russia should not bomb Syria because war is evil and bombing countries is not the “progressive” thing to do and it’s not a “Jewish value” or “social justice” or something maddeningly cliche like that.

Well all you progressive warmongers should know one thing. I was anti bombing Syria before you all were, and all it took to change your minds was some idiot in the state department who decided to mouth off about how people who aren’t Barack Obama shouldn’t be bombing countries just because they feel like it.

Well, neither should Barack Obama.

Four Days to Hoshana Rabba While US and Russia Bicker Over Who Gets to Bomb Syria

Calm down you two murder clowns. The headline on Fox News (which I almost never check unless I know something big is happening and I want to see how the MSM is screening it) is this: RUSSIAN ROULETTE: US Rejects Russia’s Demand to Stop Airstrikes as Putin Launches His Own.

There’s enough bombs and airspace for everyone to bomb Syria as much as you want. Calm down people. If it makes you feel any better, I’d much rather you come to terms with how you are both going to bomb Syria rather than fight each other over it, because that would be much worse. So I hope Putin and Obama come to an agreement about who can bomb what parts and when, before the Cold War starts up again and becomes hot.

Speaking of that, there are four more days until Hoshana Rabba, hands down the weirdest holiday in Judaism. The friend who pointed out the whole blood moon phenomenon to me also insists that Putin is Gog, citing that Gog is referred to as נשיא ראש משך ותובל. Why Nasi (president) and Rosh (head)? Putin is both president and prime minister of Russia, I believe, and the capital of Russia is Moscow – משך. Don’t know what Tuval is.

Look, I still don’t put much more than curiosity into any of these readings. If it’s true, great. If it’s not, reality is what it is. But the fact that Russia and America are now fighting over Syria is certainly bringing to mind Gog uMagog imagery in my head. This Shabbat we will be reading that Haftarah from Yechezkel. So let’s see what happens.

Steven Spielberg is a Holocaust Denier (Sarcasm)

That’s it. Nobody is commenting any more on Hitler or Holocaust denial, that’s it. Comments are closed on all World War II posts.

Here is my final word on the matter. Barking idiots are asking me to “refute” Holocaust Denial arguments. So here is my “refutation”.

Smith comments: “I’m not sure what you mean by Holocaust denial? Is it Holocaust denial to question why Eisenhower never mentioned gas chambers?”

My response: (At the end, I “prove” that Steven Spielberg is a holocaust denier.)

Did you know, Smith, that Eisenhower is also behind the round Earth conspiracy?

And he was also a Nazi Agent. And worked with Al Gore on the internet, which is the biggest factor in the Round Earth Conspiracy. It’s all here, at the link. Eisenhower created NASA, whose mission is to fool the sheeple into believing that the Earth is an “oblate spheroid”.

All the evidence for a “Round Earth” is a conspiracy, lies made up by the establishment.

And all the thousands of eye witnesses of gas chambers still alive today, and those who had to shovel the bodies out and burn them, and their memoirs and interviews and speaking tours, they all teamed up after the Americans liberated the “death camps” (which were really amusement parks, or at worst, internment camps a la FDR) to convince us of some fanciful story, just like Jews conspire all the time to fool the world into bombing Iraq. They did it because it was really the AMERICANS that killed the Jews in Europe through collateral damage, and the US government paid off all the survivors to make up stories about gas chambers, and then forced publishing houses to publish books about them all written by government agents, and then Hollywood Jews furthered the conspiracy, with Schindler’s List the ultimate cherry on top.

Hey…wait a minute! Schindler’s List!

Don’t you think it’s WEIRD that in that scene in Schindler’s List where they’re all in the “shower”, the water is actually turned on instead of the Zyklon B? Perfect evidence that STEVEN SPIELBERG AGREES WITH YOU! Otherwise he would have shown gas chambers instead of a shower!

Call him up! Ask why he didn’t put gas chambers in Schindler’s List!

Forget about “Eisenhower didn’t mention gas chambers”. NEITHER DID STEVEN SPIELBERG! That proves it!

Look Smith. I’m one of only a handful of Jews on the planet who doesn’t care what the hell you believe about the holocaust. You can believe Hitler threw cocktail parties for Jews throughout Europe until the Americans and British killed everyone and blamed it on the Germans. I don’t care. So why do you insist on trying to piss ME, of all people, off? I’m of the very few that tolerates you and advocates that you be able to bark whatever insanity you please.

The Holocaust is a Jewish issue. It has nothing to do with you. Therefore I don’t care what you say about it, as much as I don’t give a crap about your personal opinion on the Machlokes Rava Abayey in the Gemara Bava Basra 65A. What’s Smith’s psak on the issue בור ברשות הרבים? Does Smith hold by the Tana Kama or הלכה כבתראי?

I couldn’t care less what you think about Halacha, or the Holocaust. I just don’t want it on MY blog, just like I don’t want some Goy’s opinion on contemporary Jewish halachic issues, and I would delete that as well.

Your group of obsessive people means as much to me as the Flat Earth Society. Really. I think and am worried as much about Holocaust deniers as I am about round Earth deniers. I don’t give a crap about either of your “theories”. I suggest you stick to the things we agree on if you want to have any kind of constructive relationship, and stop pushing your dickish nonsense here.

Some Black Politician Named Ben Carson Hates Jews

Haha, I got you there. He only hates Muslims, so he’s fine.

Today, he was quoted as saying, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.  I absolutely would not agree with that.”

There’s a famous speech from John Grisham’s “A Time To Kill”. A closing argument from a lawyer defending a man who killed his daughter’s rapists. It goes like this:

I had a great summation all worked out, full of some sharp lawyering. But I’m not going to read it. I’m here to apologize. I am young and I am inexperienced. 

But you cannot hold Carl Lee Hailey responsible for my shortcomings. You see, in all this legal maneuvering something has gotten lost, and that something is the truth.

Now, it is incumbent upon us lawyers not to just talk about the truth, but to actually seek it, to find it, to live it. My teacher taught me that. Let’s take Dr. Bass, for example. Now, obviously I would have never knowingly put a convicted felon on the stand — I hope you can believe that. But what is the truth? That he is a disgraced liar? And what if I told you that the woman he was accused of raping was 17, he was 23, that she later became his wife, bore his child and is still married to the man today. Does that make his testimony more or less true?

What is it in us that seeks the truth? Is it our minds or is it our hearts?

I set out to prove a black man could receive a fair trial in the south, that we are all equal in the eyes of the law. That’s not the truth, because the eyes of the law are human eyes — yours and mine — and until we can see each other as equals, justice is never going to be evenhanded. It will remain nothing more than a reflection of our own prejudices, so until that day we have a duty under God to seek the truth, not with our eyes and not with our minds where fear and hate turn commonality into prejudice, but with our hearts — where we don’t know better.

Now I wanna tell you a story. I’m gonna ask ya’all to close your eyes while I tell you this story. I want you to listen to me. I want you to listen to yourselves.

This is a story about a little girl walking home from the grocery store one sunny afternoon. I want you to picture this little girl. Suddenly a truck races up. Two men jump out and grab her. They drag her into a nearby field and they tie her up, and they rip her clothes from her body. Now they climb on, first one then the other, raping her, shattering everything innocent and pure — vicious thrusts — in a fog of drunken breath and sweat. And when they’re done, after they killed her tiny womb, murdered any chance for her to bear children, to have life beyond her own, they decide to use her for target practice. So they start throwing full beer cans at her. They throw ’em so hard that it tears the flesh all the way to her bones — and they urinate on her.

Now comes the hanging. They have a rope; they tie a noose. Imagine the noose pulling tight around her neck and a sudden blinding jerk. She’s pulled into the air and her feet and legs go kicking and they don’t find the ground. The hanging branch isn’t strong enough. It snaps and she falls back to the earth. So they pick her up, throw her in the back of the truck, and drive out to Foggy Creek Bridge and pitch her over the edge. And she drops some 30 feet down to the creek bottom below.

Can you see her? Her raped, beaten, broken body, soaked in their urine, soaked in their semen, soaked in her blood — left to die.

Can you see her? I want you to picture that little girl.

Now imagine she’s white. 

Now Jews, a black man said, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.  I absolutely would not agree with that.”

Now imagine the man who said that was white.

And imagine that instead of “Muslim” he said “Jew.”

Now imagine a swastika on his shoulder.

And let him shout a Zeig Heil.

Now tell me, Jews, tell me. Tell me that this man, Ben Carson, is not a disgusting evil person.

Or, alternatively, tell me it’s OK to say that Muslims can’t “be in charge”. But it’s not OK that Jews can’t “be in charge”. And tell me, if that’s so, why you think it’s so freaking odd that so many people believe in a “Zionist Conspiracy”.

The truth is, no man should be “in charge” of an entire nation just like no man should be in charge of anyone who has taken ownership of himself. My parents are not in charge of me. Neither is Netanyahu or Obama. They can threaten me, and I may obey out of convenience. But they are not in charge of me.

Intimations of Anarchic Libertarianism in the Shmoneh Esrei

I’ve already gone into how and why I don’t say את צמח דוד in my personal Shmoneh Esrei (silent prayer of 18 blessings). This is the bracha (blessing) for the Davidic monarchy, which I don’t want so I don’t pray for it. The blessing is an addition over the original, which makes the original 18 a new 19, according to the Yerushalmi Talmud.

I’ve also said that anarchy did exist in Jewish history, and it was the most peaceful period of Jewish history ever. That was the time of the Shoftim, who were popularly chosen and sanctioned by God, with no other government or taxes to speak of. There was not even a tax-funded army during that period. It was nearly perfect, as perfect as human history can be. There were a few skirmishes, but nothing compared to the constant wars of the period of the Kings, and no civil wars either.

Read the book and it is misleading, because it covers the skirmishes only. But between each story there is a single pasuk that says, וישקט הארץ שמונים שנה, or sometimes ארבעים שנה. Meaning, the land was quiet for 80 years, or sometimes just 40. Can you imagine that? 80 years of pure absolute peace? Nothing to write about, nothing to talk about, just live your life, worship God, enjoy your friends and family, celebrate the holidays, just live life? 80 years back then is 2 lifetimes. 3 generations. Imagine no wars for 3 generations, no taxes, nothing. Unbelievable.

I’m often challenged that if I love small government then why not move to the wilderness? The answer is because I love capital equipment more than small government. If I have capital equipment that can produce 10x and the government takes 5x, I’m left with 5x. If I’m in the wilderness with no capital equipment and I can only produce 1x with my hands, then I only have 1x. Therefore, I’d rather live in a big government society with more capital equipment than in an anarchy with zero.

But if someone would give me a time machine to go back to one of those 80 year periods during the Shoftim, wow would I be tempted to actually push the button and spend the rest of my life there, despite less capital. If I could take my family and they agreed, I may do it. Fantasyland yes, but a principle.

I yearn for the period of the Shoftim to return. That is what I want, that is what I long for.

Thank God it is now Aseret Yemei Teshuva (the Ten Days of Repentance) because it forces you to pay more attention to what you’re saying. There is one bracha that changes slightly during the 10 days, and that is השיבה שופטינו, or “Restore our judges.” The end changes from “Blessed is the King who loves righteousness and justice” to “Blessed is the King of Justice.” So you have to slow down when you get to it so you don’t say the normal formula.

And when you slow down, you can start to realize things.

Here’s the whole text:

השיבה שופטינו כבראשונה, ויועצינו כבתחילה, והסר ממנו יגון ואנחה, ומלוך עלינו אתה לבדך בחסד וברחמים, וצדקני במשפט. ברוך אתה יהוה, המלך המשפט.

Restore our judges as in the earliest times, and our counselors as at the beginning. Remove from us sorrow and pain, and reign over us – you God alone – with kindness and compassion, and make us just through your justice. Blessed are you God, the King of Justice.

For some reason on Motzei Shabbos (the end of the Sabbath) last night, something clicked. This is a prayer for the restoration of the period of the Judges. Not the monarchy, the anarchy, the Judges. It is so clear now. The “judges” in the blessing are not some Rabbi who sits on a Beis Din (court) under David. It’s talking about the period of the Shoftim, that period when there was no king at all. No government in charge of defense, and no government in charge of justice. Both defense and justice were private industries back then.

The evidence is in the language of the Bracha – the “earliest times” – before a king. That only God should reign over us, alone, meaning no king. Counselors, voluntary, not kings. This is now my favorite bracha. I will say it with extra kavana now. It only took me 20 years or so of saying it to figure this out.

To all the monarchists out there, yes, David is mentioned too in the Shmoneh Esrei. There are both minarchic and anarchic sources in Judaism. We pick what we prefer. If what we need is a privately funded Davidic figurehead to rally the people, which I see as very possible, then fine. He can have a donated throne. I’ll donate it. But no taxes.

That’s as far as I’ll go with a request for the return of David’s line.
