Hillary Clinton's advisor...Jews in particular should pay attention

WILL HILLARY CLINTON BANISH ANTI-ISRAEL SIDNEY BLUMENTHAL?

"It has to be painful for any Jew to see your own kid going around insisting that Israel be destroyed and its Jewish population kicked out.”

Sidney Blumenthal's son hates Israel. I mean really, really hates Israel. As in 'Hitler level hatred'. And no, this isn't an exaggeration. 
Lustick emotionally asks Blumenthal whether he believes... that there are enough “good people” in Israel to justify its continued existence — or whether he’s calling for a mass “exodus,” the title of his last chapter, and “the end of Jewish collective life in the land of Israel.”
Blumenthal gives a convoluted answer that comes down to this: “There should be a choice placed to the settler-colonial population” (meaning the entire Jewish population of Israel): “Become indigenized,” that is, “you have to be part of the Arab world.” Or else…? “The maintenance and engineering of a non-indigenous demographic majority is non-negotiable.”
Lustick appears stunned. And not only Lustick. Philip Weiss, founder and co-editor of Mondoweiss, who was in the audience, wrote afterwards, in a rare rebuke of his own writer, that he saw “some intolerance in that answer.”
We live in a “multicultural world,” Weiss wrote. There should be room for Israelis. “The issue in the end involves the choice between an Algerian and a South African outcome.” Mass expulsion versus coexistence. “I’m for the South African outcome.”
Blumenthal isn’t. It’s a chilling moment, even for the anti-Zionists among us.
That is an except from a J.J. Goldberg piece in the Forward, hardly a pro-Israel paper, and one that tends far to the left. Mondoweiss is a straight up hate site.
And Max Blumenthal is a bit much even for them. But not for his proud papa and Clintonite, Sidney Blumenthal, who's going after anyone who messes with sonny boy.
A veteran confidant of Hillary Clinton has waded into a bitter argument over the explosive topic of Israel, defending his son’s intensely anti-Israel book from a liberal critic.
Sidney Blumenthal, a former New Yorker writer turned Clinton adviser from the White House to the 2008 campaign, has been waging an online campaign against Nation columnist Eric Alterman for negatively reviewing his son Max Blumenthal’s book, Goliath. The book was described by Alterman, himself a frequent critic of Israel, as “awful” and something that “could have been published by the Hamas Book-of-the-Month Club (if it existed).”
Reached for comment on the email flap, Alterman said he understood why Blumenthal would want to defend his son’s book.
“I actually feel for Sid,” Alterman said. “Leaving aside the quality of Max’s journalism, it has to be painful for any Jew to see your own kid going around calling Jews ‘Nazis’ and ‘fascists,’ and insisting that not only should Israel be destroyed, but its Jewish population should be kicked out.”
Maybe. It doesn't seem that painful for Sidney Blumenthal.
In a follow-up blog post after the initial review, Alterman wrote that he had become the target of emails sent around by Blumenthal to friends and associates as a result of his review of the book.
“I attribute to these friendly relations the fact that until now, Sid Blumenthal had not seen fit to make me the object of any of the unflattering e-mails he so often sends around to journalists and others — myself included — about individuals of whom he disapproves,” Alterman wrote. “Privately, I worried that by telling the truth about his son’s book, I would soon hear of nasty e-mails about me sent by Sid to our mutual friends and professional acquaintances. Call it ‘bizarre,’ if you will, but sadly, that’s just what happened.”
“The thing about Sidney is that he’s absolutely obsessed with his enemies and his way of communicating and dealing with his obsession is that he sends out emails to this very elite list of liberal journalists mostly,” said one source who has been on Blumenthal’s list.
Blumenthal’s current role in the Clinton universe is unclear. In the bio on his author page on the Atlantic’s website, he is described as an “adviser” to the Clinton Foundation, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s non-profit. Several phone calls and emails to the Clinton Foundation seeking clarification on Blumenthal’s role in the organization went unanswered. A BuzzFeed reporter who went to the Clinton Foundation’s offices in New York on Tuesday seeking the organization’s most recent IRS 990 form was turned away.
Emails alleged to be from Blumenthal that were made public earlier this year suggest that he was in communication with Clinton on matters relating to Benghazi and other national security issues this year.
Not only was Sidney Blumenthal emailing Hillary with solicited or unsolicited advice, but he was forwarding her material from his son.
And Dershowitz is speaking out and warning that Hillary Clinton is going to have break with Sidney Blumenthal over this.
On Friday, Dershowitz told Breitbart News that Sid Blumenthal's vociferous advocacy for his son's book could damage Hillary Clinton's widely anticipated run for her party's nomination for president in 2016:
"Max Blumenthal is well outside the acceptable range of rhetoric about Israel. His constant comparisons between Nazi Germany and the Jewish state establish him as an extremist bigot whose greatest appeal is to antisemites and others who apply a double standard to the Jewish state. Any political candidate who would associate himself or herself with such views would be unacceptable to Americans. In addition to being extremist in his anti-Israel views, Blumenthal is also vehemently anti-American. I have long known his father and have worked with him. But even understanding how a father would want to identify with a son, no decent person should ever support the views expressed by Max Blumenthal. I would sincerely hope that Sid, while continuing to love his son, would completely dissociate himself from his son's bigotry. And I ask decent people to ask themselves what they would do if they had a son who espoused views akin to those expressed by the KKK, Hamas and other antisemites. I would hope they would do the right thing and dissociate themselves from such views.
"In light of the long association between the Clintons and Sid Blumenthal, I hope that the Clintons ask Sid to expressly disassociate himself from his son's views--and if he refuses to, that they no longer work with him on any matters."
I wouldn't count on Hillary Clinton asking Sidney Blumenthal to make any tough choices. But they may ask him to back off his vocal campaign against critics of his son Max "Hamas Book of the Month Club" Blumenthal

The kind of story the anti gun people tell you never happens

Officer Is Attacked and Then Surrounded by ’40 or 50′ Teenagers. But Just When It Looks Like the Cop Is ‘Dead Meat,’ a Gun Owner Opens His Front Door.


Last Friday was a bad day for police in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, which hugs the western border of Philadelphia.
When Upper Darby High School lets out for the day, anywhere from six to eight township officers are tasked with patrolling the area as 4,000 students pour from the building.
Things don’t usually get problematic, but on Friday more than a few kids wanted to fight.
Cops responded to fisticuffs at three nearby locations, Philly.com reported — but one in particular got dangerous for an officer.
This fight between two teen boys drew a large crowd, but when the officer stepped in and pulled one kid off, the other teen jumped the cop, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Philly.com.
“Now he’s fighting two of them and he’s calling for an assist officer at the same time,” Chitwood added to the outlet — but that was nothing compared to what was unfolding.
“There’s a crowd of 40 or 50 kids watching the fight, and they all move in toward the officer,” he explained, adding that ”there’s no doubt they would have attacked him.”
Fortunately for the outnumbered cop, a resident who lives on the block emerged from his house holding a gun and telling the teens to stop.

And wouldn’t you know — they took heed of his command.
“He had the gun in his hand, but he didn’t point it at the kids, he just told them to back off,” Chitwood told Philly.com.
The surrounded officer suffered hand injuries, the outlet said — but Chitwood said it could have been a lot worse, noting that if the ”good Samaritan” resident hadn’t stepped up, the officer would have been “dead meat.”
The gun owner, 35, is a concealed-carry permit holder, Chitwood added to the outlet, and he put a lid on the rumbling teens until other officers got there and took control.
Philly.com added that an officer who responded to the call for help was kicked by one of the teens in the fight and suffered a serious leg injury — but it isn’t clear if that occurred before or after the resident stepped in.
The two teens from the fight in question were charged with aggravated assault on police, riot, harassment, and related offenses, Philly.com reported, adding that they were taken to a juvenile detention center. Six other teens were arrested for fighting that day; one was taken to a juvenile detention center and the other five were released to parents or guardians. Six of the teens arrested attend Upper Darby High School and the other two attend two other schools.
Since Friday’s incident, police told Philly.com that after-school patrols in the area have doubled.
“There’s thousands of kids that walk to and from that school without a problem,” Chitwood told the outlet, “but every once in a while you get these wannabe gangsters, and if they want to be gangsters, we’ll treat them like gangsters.”

I took this unusual step because of the difficulty in finding it in the Philly paper. 

This is what passes for logic in the NYC City Council...

"Last month, Mark-Viverito proposed a series of council bills that would decriminalize quality-of-life offenses, in part, she said, because blacks and Hispanics are arrested at higher rates than whites."

What the left has done to moral actions...save a life get fired. A life means noting if offends the left's sensibilities.


Licensed Gun Owner Saves Woman from Vicious Stabbing — Moments Later, He’s Stunned by the Words He Hears from Employer

A General Motors employee says he was fired for pulling out his gun after witnessing a woman being stabbed at the company’s Warren, Michigan, plant Wednesday.
The victim, 52, was hospitalized and remains in critical condition, but many are saying that had it not been for Didarul Sarder, a valet service supervisor, she probably would have died on site.

Sarder, who has a valid concealed pistol license (CPL), pulled out his gun to stop the attack and stayed with the woman until police and medical personnel arrived. 
“The lady kept saying ‘I’m dying, someone help’ and it was just a natural reaction,” Sarder told WJBK-TV. “I just see this lady getting stabbed. I only had, like, half a second to think and I unholstered my firearm and pointed it at her to drop the knife.”
Sarder ordered the 32-year-old attacker to freeze until she was arrested by police.
Once the situation was under control, Sarder said a fellow GM employee ordered him to be removed from the site. 
The stabbing occurred just outside the main entrance of the central office building where the victim works. Police said the suspect came to see the employee, and what began as an argument in the lobby quickly turned into the scene Sarder witnessed.
Though the valet said initially he was hurt when he was told to leave the premises, he has no regrets about his actions.
“I would to do it all over again,” Sarder said. “If I could save this woman’s life over a job, I can get another job.”
Local officials are hailing Sarder as a hero. Though GM refused to comment due to the ongoing investigation, the company released a statement denying that Sarder was ever fired.
“To our knowledge the valet remains an employee of the vendor,” the statement read.
As of Thursday the victim was still recovering in the hospital from multiple stab wounds to her neck, back and abdomen.
Sarder told WJBK-TV he hopes his efforts were enough to save the woman’s life.
“Maybe those few seconds before the police arrived could be the difference between life and death.”

College Student Publicly Threatens to ‘Smash This B***h’s Computer’ Over Trump Sticker — When She Sees His Tweet, Things Get Nasty

A St. John’s University student threatened to smash a fellow student’s laptop because it displayed a Donald Trump campaign sticker — and now the victim apparently fears for her safety.
The student who made the threat — Clifford Durand, 18, according to the New York Daily News — posted a photo of the student and her laptop affixed with a “Trump: Make America Great Again” sticker during what appeared to be a class Wednesday morning.
st johns
The post from the now-suspended account read, “7000 retweets and i’ll smash this b***h’s computer.” The Daily News reported the post was retweeted 16,000 times within four hours — although Durand’s friends claimed it was a joke.
It doesn’t appear to have been funny to the subject of the tweet, 20-year-old Brianna Algazali, who learned of the viral post, took up the matter with St. John’s public safety and then confronted Durand, the paper said, apparently in a coffee shop.

“She raised her voice and she threw her drink on him,” one of Durand’s friends told the Daily News. “He looked like he was in shock. I went towards him to hold him back.”

That reportedly wasn’t enough, as Durand allegedly struck Algazali after getting soaked — and later bragged about it: “SHE THREW HER STARBUCKS AT ME AFTER CUSSING ME OUT AND SHE GOT SHOVED IN THE NECK,” Durand tweeted, the Daily News said.
Algazali later said that “I fear for my safety,” according to the paper.
Here’s what else Durand apparently posted regarding the situation before his account was suspended:

But the New York City school has been savaged by replies accusing it of sweeping the situation under the rug and calling for Durand’s expulsion:

One reply contained a brief clip titled “THE BRO IS FREE!!!!” apparently of Durand walking away from a building while his friends yelled. One was heard saying, “Yeah, Cliff, they can’t f***in’ hold you, bro!”
Here’s the clip. (Content warning: Rough language):

The Twitter user who posted the video claimed the he saw the incident regarding the laptop and that it was caught by school security cameras and that it was a joke:

Muslim asylum immigrants bring with them ingrained hatreds and the violence to go along with them.

REPORT: Christians, Gays, Women Fleeing Asylum Centres Due To Persecution By Muslim Men

Christians, homosexuals and women are fleeing asylum centres in Germany in ever growing numbers due to acts of violence, intolerance and crime perpetrated by Muslim men.

According to German newspaper Die Welt, the violence toward ethnic minorities, religious minorities and women continues to skyrocket across German asylum centres. Muslim men tear up Bibles and assault Christians, sexually abuse women and children, and beat up homosexuals. The news has led to calls from human rights campaigners to say enough is enough.
In Stuttgart a case of abuse toward an Assyrian Christian by a Muslim roommate led to a petition for separate housing that was signed by over 17,000 people online. The petition, organised by the Central Oriental Christians, asked the City of Stuttgart to, “please accommodate the displaced Christians in Stuttgart-Neugereut and keep them from further distress and persecution to which they are exposed in a decentralised accommodation.”
The matter was brought to the city and a separate asylum centre for 30 Christians was approved by the council. Spokesman for Stuttgart Sven Matis told the paper that after speaking to the district assistant they would be able to approve accommodation for the 30 Christians in Neugereut by the end of April.
Martin Lessenthin, CEO of the International Society for Human Rights also commented on the systematic persecutions of Christians all across German asylum homes. He said it was common to see both Christians and Yazidis subject to torment and beatings and while it is not desirable to accommodate migrants separately, it may be inevitable for the safety of the minorities.
Separation of migrants has been a policy when it comes to extremely vulnerable minorities. Yazidi girls who were used as sex slaves by the Islamic State are housed in secret locations in Germany so as not to attract unwanted attention from migrants sympathetic to the Islamic State or Muslims who view them as nothing more than sexual objects. A purported 1,100 of these women live in various special shelters across Germany.
One victim of sexual abuse is said to have been only eight years old at the time of her abuse by ISIS. Another girl had to be treated by specialist burn victim doctors because the constant sexual torment drove her to try and light herself on fire in a failed attempt at suicide.
In Freibeurg, some 200 women live in secret. The head of the Baden-Wurttemberg state chancellery Klaus-Peter Murawski warns that ISIS militants may be actively monitoring the project in hopes of getting revenge against the women. This warning was proven accurate when an ISIS commander was found at an asylum home earlier this week.
Breitbart London has reported on migrant violence within asylum homes with cases of Christians, homosexuals and others being beaten in asylum centres across Germany, reports of asylum centres as breeding grounds for extremism, and even young children being brutally raped by fellow migrants.
In today’s Guardian newspaper, columnist Owen Jones blames the “far right” for instability across Europe, lumping thousands of criminal migrants sparking a crime wave across the continent with Jews who fled Nazi Germany. He writes: “And who is waiting, preparing and consolidating? Europe’s far right, already feeding off the despair of economic crisis and a backlash against refugees fleeing violence from the Middle East. Where once the principal target was Jews, now it’s Muslim”.

This fool is unaware that Malcolm X was killed by the Nation of Islam not a white guy. I guess we now have to walk an arm's length away from black youth!.

BBC to use face-scanning technology to shed light on viewers' tastes

Successful trial of CrowdEmotion enabled the BBC to find how 'how people truly felt about the content they were viewing
The BBC is pressing ahead with plans to utilise new facial coding technology – revealing viewers’ subconscious “emotional attachment” to programmes – after running successful trials.
Developed by a British start-up, CrowdEmotion, the technology uses cameras to record individuals’ expressions and actions.
Facial movements are recorded on a second-by-second basis and the results are divided into six possible emotions: sadness, puzzlement, happiness, fear, rejection and surprise.
The cameras allow researchers to measure the often subconscious responses people have to visual content. 
CrowdEmotion is working with the Insight division of BBC Worldwide, the corporation’s commercial wing, on projects which could be used to help the BBC gauge how viewers react to particular programmes.
A pilot experiment, measuring 5,000 people’s conscious and subconscious emotional responses to marketing campaigns on the BBC.com website – from clients including HSBC – has proved a success, BBC Worldwide said.
The BBC wanted to discover if audiences would respond more positively to content which was clearly labelled as originating from a commercial brand. 
Facial coding showed a 77 per cent increase in “explicit positivity” towards the brand’s advertising and a 14 per cent increase in “subconscious positivity” when it was clearly marked as sponsored content.
The BBC’s advertising division said the technology “enabled us to find out the emotional response of each person and how they truly felt about the content they were viewing, rather than just relying on traditional analytics such as dwell time and page views”.

A separate BBC Worldwide study with CrowdEmotion installed 200 web cams in homes across the UK, capturing viewer reactions to shows including Sherlock. The BBC said the experiment also produced valuable results.
Further tests have taken place with audiences in Russia and Australia, with responses to around 100 different programmes recorded.
The viewer trial prompted concerns that the BBC would use the webcam technology to “spy” on people’s living rooms and assess how diligently they were watching programmes. But the BBC believes facial coding will help it to serve audiences merely by gaining a greater understanding of their tastes.
Rather than tailoring new programmes to match the results of the experiment, the insights would be used to guide viewers towards more shows they might like, informed by their conscious and subconscious reactions.
CrowdEmotion, supported by the BBC Worldwide Labs programme, aims to become the largest dedicated facial coding provider in the world. The BBC programmes trial gave the company a data set of 10,000 “face videos”.
