Israeli team rush to Guatemala to help volcano victims 
by JUDY SIEGEL-ITZKOVICH
{ jpost.com } ~ A delegation composed of experts in treating burns, respiratory diseases and injuries left for Guatemala on Thursday... to help the victims of the country’s Fuega volcano. The team was dispatched at the bidding of the Prime Minister’s Office after it received a request for help from the president of Guatemala, Jimmy Morales Cabrera. The horrific volcano, which killed dozens of people, caused many lava-related burns and many lung injuries from inhaling the volcanic dust. The delegation is headed by a representative of the Health Ministry’s emergency department, with a team of plastic surgeons and burn experts from Sheba Medical Center, a lung specialist from Rambam Medical Center and a Magen David Adom paramedic with experience dealing with disasters...Thank you Israel!   https://www.jpost.com/HEALTH-SCIENCE/Israeli-team-rush-to-Guatemala...

China just took the next big step towards 
dethroning the dollar as #1 global currency

{ freekit.birchgold.com } ~ For decades, countries have paid for oil with the petrodollar, which supports the U.S. dollar's value... The system has been critical to the USD's stability. But now, China is upsetting everything. It began in June, when Beijing started to buy oil from Russia in yuan – thus establishing the "petroyuan".Then China sought the same agreement with other nations. But they found that most weren't as receptive as Moscow to such a deal, because the yuan is still too unestablished. However, China has an ingenious solution: Back the petroyuan with gold. Gold is MUCH more attractive around the world than the yuan, so these new gold-backed contracts are opening the door for the petrodollar to be overturned... PERMANENTLY...   https://freekit.birchgold.com/lf/china-attacks-usd/?utm_medium=emai...

Palestinians: "Burn the Jews!"
by Bassam Tawil
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ The Palestinians, who have been sending flaming kites from the Gaza Strip into Israel the past few weeks... say that their real goal is to "burn the Jews" and destroy Israel. They see the kites as a new weapon to achieve their goal. They are disappointed, they say, that no Jew has been hurt yet as a result of the fires triggered by the flaming kites. The kites have ignited dozens of fires in Israeli fields and forests adjacent to the border with the Gaza Strip, much to the satisfaction of the Palestinians and their supporters in the Arab and Islamic countries, who took to various social media platforms to celebrate the "success" of the Palestinian terror kites. The same Palestinians who are openly stating that the flaming kites are aimed at "burning the Jews" and eliminating Israel are also arguing that this new form of terrorism is in the context a "peaceful and nonviolent protest" by the residents of the Gaza Strip...Peace... you got to be crazy or brainwaste.   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12467/palestinians-burn-the-jews

Candidate to Replace scumbag-Keith Ellison 
May Be Even More Hostile to Israel 
{ investigativeproject.org } ~ Within three short hours of U.S. Rep. scumbag-Keith Ellison's announcement that he would leave Congress to run for Minnesota Attorney General... Minneapolis state Rep. Ilhan Omar became a candidate to replace him in Washington. Omar became the first Somali Muslim legislator in 2016, defeating 22-term state Rep. Phyllis Kahn. scumbag-Ellison's tenure has been marked by concerns he is hostile to Israel, something compounded by the Investigative Project on Terrorism obtaining a 2010 recording in which scumbag-Ellison complains that Israel enjoys disproportionate influence over U.S. foreign policy. But given what she says on social media, including comments before she ran for office, Omar appears explicitly and openly hostile toward Israel...

Sessions ‘Covering Up’ Scandal That 
Will ‘Demolish’ Dems’ Russia Narrative 
by CILLIAN ZEAL
{ westernjournal.com } ~ Is Attorney General Jeff Sessions helping the Democrats cover up a scandal that could “demolish” the Russia narrative?... One reporter thinks so now that Imran Awan, the former tech guy for former DNC head Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is being given a reprieve. Awan, regular readers might remember, was  arrested at Washington Dulles Airport trying to fly back to his native Pakistan one day after smashed hard drives were recovered from his home by federal officials. He was charged, along with his wife, with bank fraud and conspiracy in the matter. However, the case has been subject to repeated delays and seems to have mysteriously disappeared from the radar of practically anyone but investigative reporter Luke Rosiak with The Daily Caller. As a plea deal seems to be imminent, Rosiak has noted that Awan has been hiding assets and that his former business partner claims that data was given to the Pakistanis government by the Awan family, among other claims...

Recycling: Not All It's Cracked Up to Be

by Culture Beat:  In an era when concern for the environment is widely viewed as the truest form of “spiritual” and moral living, it has become anathema to question the validity of the tenets of this secular religion. This public attitude largely explains why many dubious practices that have been wrapped up in the altruistic guise of “saving the environment” receive little critical analysis. One prime example of this phenomenon is the recycling movement. The obvious moral principle of stewardship underlying the concept of recycling is indeed commendable. But a book should not be judged by its cover, and recycling in practice is neither economically nor environmentally all that it’s cracked up to be.

             Much of the energy and time families and individuals put into separating their garbage is often for naught, as much of the separated recyclables actually end up in the same landfill as other garbage. There are several reasons for this.
               First, until recently China imported large quantities of America’s recyclables. This year, China has essentially shut down most recycling imports, which has had a huge impact as the U.S. exported nearly a third of all recyclables. Second, not all plastics, which make up the bulk of items separated for recycling, are recyclable. Third, lower oil prices over the last few years have effectively priced out the economic value of recycling. It’s just not cost effective. And finally, the impact of recycling may actually prove to have an overall negative impact on the environment.
               John Tierney points out in a New York Times article that the impact of washing plastics before recycling, coupled with trucking emissions for moving to recycling facilities, could end up adding to green house gasses. Tierney further notes that “all the trash generated by Americans for the next 1,000 years would fit on one-tenth of 1 percent of the land available for grazing.” He adds, “And any tiny amount of land wouldn’t be lost forever, because landfills are typically covered with grass and converted to parkland, like the Freshkills Park being created on Staten Island. The United States Open tennis tournament is played on the site of an old landfill — and one that never had the linings and other environmental safeguards required today.”
               In short, like much “settled science” these days, the justification for recycling is just being, well, recycled.  ~The Patriot Pos

OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People

Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.

Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”

“I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”
Oh?!

Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”

While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.

King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
