Here is a story that should be interesting to watch. It touches on so many hot button issues — from freedom of speech to racial insensitivity to the role of a teacher — that newspapers that have covered it can’t agree on a headline. The Associated Press titles their version of the story “Ohio teacher fired over comment on black president.” The Cincinnati Enquirer opts for “Fairfield teacher accused of racial slur loses job.”
Here are the broad outlines: Last December, a student in Gil Voigt’s freshman science class said he had aspirations to become president. According to the student, Voigt told him the nation didn’t need another black commander in chief. On Thursday, Voigt was terminated by the Fairfield Board of Education in a unanimous vote. Voigt said on Friday that he plans to appeal the ruling with the Butler County Court of Appeals.
“We’re hoping it’s just a provocation but I always thought the days that Jews would become scapegoats for whatever reason were long over.”
- Yosef Gurevitz, saw one of the letters telling Jews to register
In the months since Ukraine’s pro-Moscow government of President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown, accusations of fascism and anti-Semitism from both the pro-Russia and pro-Ukraine sides have been surfacing and have Vladimir Putin worried about the rising tones of hatred against Jews in the region. And now as shadows of the Holocaust…a nightmare straight from the bowels of hell…seem to be resurrecting again…Jews in Donetsk, Ukraine…over 16 years of age…are being told via letter to pay a fee of $50 U.S., provide a list of property they own, and register as Jews with the pro-Russian separatists or face loss of citizenship or expulsion.
Today, only about 70,000 remain of a once thriving two million plus Jewish community and the ghosts have now returned to haunt…the ghosts of the 1.5 million Ukrainian Jews who were exterminated between 1941 and 1945, when most Ukrainians either outright cooperated with the Nazis or simply looked away.

Since his rise to power, a number of people have wondered whether Barack Obama is a Christian or a Muslim. A poll once showed that about 18 percent believe he is a Muslim, even though the Democrat-media complex tells us he is a Christian.
We haven’t received a press release from the Almighty telling us one way or the other, but a post at Now the End Begins pulled together a list of 40 quotes that are quite telling. 20 are Obama quotes on Islam and 20 are Obama quotes on Christianity.
It’s sounding more and more like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., wants to see the Bundy family and their supporters killed.
Hyperbole, you say? Hardly. This is a man who called supporters of the Bundys “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” He also called them unpatriotic, and said that a task force is being put together to “deal” with the Bundys. Reid didn’t say what he meant by that, but you can figure it out for yourself.
As we enter the Easter and Passover season some Christian sects will once again bring up the old hatreds that the Jewish people killed Jesus, when nothing could be further from the truth. Before you discount this, please read what I have to say.
Simply, the Jews did NOT kill Jesus as it was the Romans that had him crucified and caused his mortal death. Pope Benedict XVI completely absolved and publicly apologized for wrongly charging the Jews with the death of Jesus, and most contemporary Christian theologians acknowledge that the Jews could NOT possibly have influenced the all-powerful Romans into killing Jesus.
The lie that the Jews had Jesus put to death or had any part in his death has been spread ever since the time of the Romans, and has caused more harm to the Jewish people over the centuries than almost anything else, and still does so by anti-Semitic bigots who continue to perpetrate this lie.

There is no need to rehearse the many problems that continue to plague Obamacare and make it a gift to Republicans and a curse to vulnerable red-state Senate Democrats as the days to the midterm elections tick down. In fact, President Obama himself said as much yesterday when he made a rare appearance in front of the White House press corps and smugly announced that “this thing is working.”
It’s been established by now that the so-called “mainstream media” is in the tank for Barack Obama.
But that assertion got proved pretty much beyond a doubt during an interview in which White House Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted the toughest interview Obama had during the 2012 election was with — wait for it — The Daily Show’s Jay Carney.
“You can’t send in tanks and at the same time hold talks. The use of force would sabotage the opportunity offered by the four-party negotiations in Geneva.”
- Ukrainian foreign minister Andriy Deshchytsya
Point blank…Ukraine is on the brink of war…and while Vladimir Putin and his Russian forces are the aggressors…Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a willing participant in that aggression by his very inactions.
And as America’s allies throughout Eastern and Central Europe worry about their future sovereignty because of Obama’s inactions, Putin sends unmarked special forces into Ukraine. And he does so at the same time he accuses the Ukrainian government of pursuing an “anti-constitutional” path by using force against the pro-Russian demonstrators. Continue reading →
