Andrew Cuomo Coronavirus Intelwars Jewish Leaders New York sue

New York Jewish leaders sue Gov. Cuomo alleging ‘blatantly anti-Semitic’ coronavirus restrictions

Three New York rabbis have filed suit against their state and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) over his recent executive order mandating targeted coronavirus restrictions in Jewish communities, calling it “blatantly anti-Semitic.”

What are the details?

Last week, Cuomo issued major new restrictions on schools, businesses, and houses of worship in 20 COVID-19 “hotspots” in New York, after a rise in cases that he referred to as mainly an “ultra-Orthodox” Jewish problem, according to the New York Post.

The restrictions came just ahead of celebration of Jewish holidays Hoshanah Rabbah, Shmini Atzerees and Simchas Torah, and led to protests in the streets of Brooklyn.

In a lawsuit filed in the Manhattan federal court on Wednesday, Rabbis Moshe Rosner, Samuel Teitelbaum, and Chaim Leibish Rottenberg — representing their respective congregations — claim that the governor’s new order was “blatantly anti-Semitic, creating religious-observance based color coded ‘hot-spot’ zones directed towards particular Jewish communities.”

The defendants went on to argue that Cuomo’s order “specifically singles out the Orthodox Jewish community in what has proven to be the latest extension of Governor Cuomo’s streak of anti-Semitic discrimination.”

The Center for American Liberty, the group representing the congregations, say that his move is unconstitutional on several grounds, writing that the governor’s actions “violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment, the Freedom of Assembly Clause of the First Amendment, Substantive and Procedural Due Process Rights under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.”

According to the Associated Press, “Cuomo, who has said he has ‘respect and love’ for the Orthodox community, told reporters Thursday that he was not targeting Orthodox Jewish communities. He said red zones are based on addresses of residences where more individuals are testing positive for Covid-19.”

In reaction to a similar lawsuit from separate Jewish group last week, a senior advisor to Cuomo told The Post, “We’ve been sued virtually every day for every action taken.” He added, “We’re concentrating on reducing the virus in these hot spots and saving lives, period.”

Black Lives Matter Intelwars Leaders Press Conference Proud boys utah

(READY) Utah BLM and Proud Boys leaders hold joint press conference calling for unity in America Sub: The proud boys said they ‘denounce white supremacy’

The leader of a northern Utah Black Lives Matter chapter held a press conference with local Proud Boys leaders in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, defending the group which has been labeled by critics as white supremacists.

But the leaders from both activist organizations — who have been meeting together to find common ground — called on Americans to come together in unity after months of unrest and divisiveness in the country.

What are the details?

In video taken by KUTV-TV, Jacarri Kelley, the leader of Black Lives Matter, Northern Utah, told the press that she called the conference because she wanted to set the record straight after the Proud Boys were mentioned during the first presidential debate and accused of being “white supremacists.”

Kelley was flanked by Proud Boys local president Seth, and chief Thad, both of whom only provided their first names.

The BLM leader explained that she has been meeting with Seth and Thad for the past several weeks to learn more about their views, after she spoke with a few Proud Boys members during a protest who reassured her that they were just there “to make sure nothing goes down.”

“We sat down and had a conversation about each others’ myths that we heard about the Black Lives Matter movement and about the Proud Boys,” Kelley said about her first meeting with the leaders. “And we came to realize we had more in common than not. And in order to combat evil and racism and hatred in this country, we do need to be able to reach across the aisle and have these tough conversations.”

“They’re not white supremacists. These are proud American men,” Kelley said, before adding that both groups “have an issue with the media” because they feel their organizations are not fairly portrayed.

On their website, the Proud boys tout themselves as “Western chauvinists,” who believe “the West is the best,” and state that they “do not discriminate based upon race or sexual orientation/preference.” Seth told KUTV, “Don’t get it wrong, like male chauvinism or anything like that. Those are two different things.”

A KSTU-TV reporter shared a clip on Twitter of Thad saying during the press conference, “I will go out and say that the #ProudBoys as a whole, I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization, denounce white supremacy.”

The group has been involved in several clashes with left-leaning activists in Portland and elsewhere. Last week, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) declared a state of emergency ahead of a planned Proud Boys rally in riot-plagued Portland on Saturday, saying the group was “looking for a fight.”

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden invoked the group’s name during the presidential debate when he and moderator Chris Wallace called on President Donald Trump to denounce white supremacy. The president was met with backlash when we called for the group to “stand back and stand by.”

The next day, the president told the press he did not know who the Proud Boys are, and clarified that “they have to stand down, let law enforcement do its work.”

Intelwars Leaders Mount Rushmore Remove Sioux

Sioux leaders call for Mount Rushmore to be ‘removed’

Two Sioux tribal leaders are calling for the removal of the faces of U.S. presidents carved into Mount Rushmore, saying the monument in South Dakota’s Black Hills is an insult to their people and a stain on sacred land.

What are the details?

The Argus Leader interviewed Oglala Sioux President Julian Bear Runner last week, to get the tribal leader’s take on President Donald Trump visit to Mount Rushmore during an upcoming Independence Day celebration at the monument.

Bear Runner said he is not only against the president’s visit, he wants the attraction displaying the etched faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln removed altogether—carefully.

“I don’t believe it should be blown up, because it would cause more damage to the land,” Bear Runner told the newspaper, reiterating that the faces on Mount Rushmore should be “removed but not blown up.”

Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Chairman Harold Frazier agrees. In a statement released Monday, Frazier wrote that “nothing stands as a greater reminder to the Great Sioux Nation of a country that cannot keep a promise or treaty then (sic) the faces carved into our sacred land on what the United States calls Mount Rushmore.”

Frazier added, “Visitors look upon the faces of those presidents and extoll the virtues that they believe make America the country it is today. Lakota see the faces of the men who lied, cheated and murdered innocent people whose only crime was living on the land they wanted to steal.”

According to The New York Times:

Native Americans have long criticized the sculpture, in part because it was built on what had been Indigenous land. And more recently, amid a nationwide movement against racism that has toppled statues commemorating Confederate general and other historical figures, some activists have called for Mount Rushmore to close.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) said last week that her office had already seen threats on social media targeting Mount Rushmore for destruction by activists. When the prospect of the monument being “blown up” was raised on social media, Noem declared, “Not on my watch.”

New Numbers: Economic Downturn Could Kill Hundreds of Thousands of Children in 2020

Even the most authoritarian of all regimes, the U.N., is warning about the upcoming death toll due to the economic destruction by governments. The United Nations is saying hundreds of thousands of children are likely to die in the upcoming year because of the economic depression caused by the lockdowns.

Let’s be clear: the pandemic didn’t cause the economy to crash. The tyrannical and draconian commands from governments and people willing to obey those commands crashed the economy.

On Thursday, the United Nations warned that in addition to the deaths of children, tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the economic crisis.  That’s far more severe than the virus has proven to be. The world body also said in a risk report that nearly 369 million children across 143 countries who normally rely on school meals for a reliable source of daily nutrition have now been forced to look elsewhere.

They Don’t Want You To Know The Truth! It’s Time To End The Tyrannical Lockdown Ourselves

“We must act now on each of these threats to our children,” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said. “Leaders must do everything in their power to cushion the impact of the pandemic. What started as a public health emergency has snowballed into a formidable test for the global promise to leave no one behind.”

Unfortunately, “leaders” have failed. “Leaders” have caused the economic depression and “leaders” cannot fix anything.  It’s up to the rest of us.

According to a report by Reuters, the U.N. report warned that “economic hardship experienced by families as a result of the global economic downturn could result in hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths in 2020, reversing the last 2 to 3 years of progress in reducing infant mortality within a single year.”

We can do something about this.  Governments have no desire to have a booming economy or see people capable of taking care of themselves.  What can we do? Disobey.  Open your business, go about your life, and live as you own yourself because you do.  Governments won’t end the shutdown and intend to drag out the misery for as long as possible to prove they have the power to do so.

We have to end the tyranny now and we have to do it ourselves.

Even evidence from tyrants is showing that the shutdown has done more harm than the virus. It is time to wake up to what’s being done and push back. We all need to let all people in government know that we know they want to use fear to control us, and we won’t be accepting that any longer by disobeying their tyrannical commands.
