Rabbi Yudi Dukes 39 father of 6 dies after 10-month battle with COVID

Rabbi Yehuda “Yudi” Dukes, a Hasidic father of six who became sick with COVID-19 in late March and spent nearly 10 months in the hospital as he struggled with the effects of the disease, died Thursday. He was 39.

Dukes’ wife, Sarah, announced his death in a Facebook post Thursday morning hours after she exhorted her many followers on social media to pray for her husband.

Dukes became a symbol of the toll of the pandemic to many in the Chabad Hasidic community and around the world as Sarah documented his condition in Facebook and Instagram posts throughout his hospital stays. People around the world performed mitzvahs — Jewish rituals and good deeds that including saying prayers and learning Torah — in his honor with the hope of contributing to his recovery. A crowdfunding campaign has raised well over $500,000.

The rabbi and his wife, a music therapist, frequently sought spiritual meaning in his struggles with COVID.

“This has not been done to me,” Dukes told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency from the medical intensive care unit at NYU’s Langone hospital last summer. “It’s been done for me.”

Before the pandemic began, Dukes had been healthy and served as the director of the Jewish Learning Network, or JNet, a worldwide Chabad program that pairs people to study Judaism together.

Judge Barbara Rothstein rules that Amazon won’t be forced to host Parler

So another Jew in power decides to choke free speech .... is it any wonder that the goyim hate our guts ..

Chuck Schumer is now Senate Majority Leader and the Biden Cabinet is chock full of Jewish self-haters .... 

Jews are 2% of the US population yet they are 6% of of the 535 lawmakers in both chambers of congress  ...very scary ... because by in large they do not vote for Jewish causes because they are afraid of what the goyim say, even though they were voted in by Jews  .. in contrast with  black legislators who are not afraid to vote for black causes ... ..so what's the point of having Jews in power when they are afraid to fight for Jewish values and cause goyim to hate us ... Americans even leftists will never forget that it was Jews like Schumer, Nadler, Schiff and Finestone (even though she is technically a shiksa) that tried unseating a sitting president..

 A federal judge on Thursday declined to force Amazon to bring controversial social network Parler back onto its cloud service. 

Parler had sued Amazon Web Services last week after the tech titan forced it to go dark — a decision that AWS blamed on the social network’s failure to police the threats of violence the platform ahead of this month’s pro-Trump siege on the US Capitol. In its suit, Parler accused Amazon of trying to protect Twitter from competition. 

The lawsuit suggested AWS pulled the plug on Parler to save Twitter from a growing competitor weeks after the two companies signed a deal that would see AWS support the delivery of “millions of daily tweets.”

But on Thursday US district Judge Barbara Rothstein in Seattle said that Parler’s lawyers did not present a convincing argument. 

“Parler has failed to do more than raise the specter of preferential treatment of Twitter by AWS,” Rothstein said. “Importantly, Parler has submitted no evidence that AWS and Twitter acted together intentionally — or even at all — in restraint of trade.”

Parler is currently on life support, with CEO John Matze saying recently that the site could be offline for “longer than expected” as it seeks a new host.

Biden’s Executive Order Allows Men Dressed Like Girls To Compete in Women's Sports


 Mere hours after stressing the need for “unity,” President Biden sparked a new civil war with an executive order letting transgender women compete in women’s sports.

On social media, #BidenErasedWomen and #TERFs (an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”) trended following the action. That’s understandable: It’s one thing, after all, to ban discrimination; it’s another to tell schools and colleges that transwomen athletes — biologically born boys who now identify as female — must be allowed to compete with biological women and girls, despite their physical advantages.

The notion is patently ridiculous and may result in millions of girls losing out on prestigious sports victories (and maybe scholarships that go with them). It also risks greater injuries to women. A better solution, perhaps, might be to give trans athletes a league of their own.

Meanwhile, the US Education Department will now switch sides in two court battles, one in Connecticut and another in Idaho, over whether transgender athletes are treated by their biological sex or by how they identify.

Surely Title IX, the landmark federal law that guarantees equal opportunity for women and girls in education and sports, wasn’t drafted with the intent of allowing biological women to go up against female-identifying men.

“A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls,” Wall Street Journal contributor Abigail Shrier tweeted.

Clearly Biden wants to signal his left-wing bona fides early, but if such foolish moves foreshadow what’s to come, forget about “unity.”

Amazon offers Biden vaccine assistance after months of silence with Trump... Amazon Wasn't Interested in Saving Lives With Trump!



Amazon is offering to help President Biden hasten distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, inviting questions about whether the offer was ever made to the Trump administration.

Amazon executive Dave Clark pitched the idea to Biden as soon as he took office in a Wednesday letter that also congratulated him on his inauguration. 

“We are prepared to leverage our operations, IT, & communications capabilities and expertise to assist your administration’s vaccination efforts. Our scale allows us to make a meaningful impact immediately,” Clark wrote.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said at a Thursday afternoon briefing that “we’ve had a lot of outreach, some privately, some publicly from a range of businesses and private sector entities. And we certainly welcome that. And we’ll be considering all of those offers.”

A journalist pressed Psaki about the timing of Amazon’s offer, inquiring if the tech giant waited until after Trump left office as “a political call… while lives are hanging in the  balance.

“I’m not aware of the timeline of when Amazon reached out. That sounds like a question for Amazon to me,” Psaki said.

Georgia conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Thursday made good on her promise to file articles of impeachment against President Biden.

“I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we will see how this goes,” Greene said.

Pearls of Wisdom from Newt Gingrich .. Explaining Why He Cannot Accept the Outcome of the 2020 Elections.

 From Newt Gingrich former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives 馃嚭馃嚫


A smart friend of mine who is a moderate liberal asked why I was not recognizing Joe Biden’s victory. The friend made the case that Mr. Biden had gotten more votes, and historically we recognize the person with the most votes. Normally, we accept the outcome of elections just as we accept the outcomes of sporting events.

So, my friend asked why was 2020 different?
Having spent more than four years watching the left “resist” President Donald Trump and focus entirely on undoing and undermining the 2016 election, it took me several days to understand the depth of my own feelings.

As I thought about it, I realized my anger and fear were not narrowly focused on votes. My unwillingness to relax and accept that the election grew out of a level of outrage and alienation unlike anything I had experienced in more than 60 years involvement in public affairs.

The challenge is that I — and other conservatives — are not disagreeing with the left within a commonly understood world. We live in alternative worlds.  The left’s world is mostly the established world of the forces who have been dominant for most of my life.

My world is the populist rebellion which believes we are being destroyed, our liberties are being cancelled and our religions are under assault. (Note the new Human Rights Campaign to decertify any religious school which does not accept secular sexual values — and that many Democrat governors have kept casinos open while closing churches though the COVID-19 pandemic.) We also believe other Democrat-led COVID-19 policies have enriched the wealthy while crushing middle class small business owners (some 160,000 restaurants may close).

In this context, let’s talk first about the recent past and the presidency:

"Lekoved" Biden's First Day in Office "UrANUS" The ice giant is set to make a rare appearance TONIGHT as it hangs between the moon and Mars

 UrANUS is going to be on view for the world to see tonight.

NASA reports the ice giant will be on view January 20 a few hours after sundown. 

The seventh planet from the Sun shines at the edge of naked-eye visibility, especially in areas with light pollution, so it's notoriously hard to view.

But stargazers with a telescope or binoculars should be able to spot it hanging in the night sky between the moon and Mars.

That evening, find the crescent Moon and the Red Planet in the couple of hours after it gets dark,' advises NASA's What's Up skywatching guide

Mars will stand out in the night sky with an orange, reddish tint near the moon, reports Axel Diaz, a Solar System Ambassador for NASA.   

People say you can't find the planet Uranus—it's very hard to find, it's very faint, it's very small,' says Diaz. 

'The best way to find it is to look at the moon. Look at the moon and look at Mars.'

Biden to Allow Males in Girls Bathrooms on Day One

 At the top of Joe Biden’s position page on gay and transgender issues is a quote from Biden that’s supposed to neatly express his guiding principle on the issues:

“Who do you love? Who do you love? And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that’s what people are finding out is what all marriages, at their root, are about.”

My guess is that the Biden campaign didn’t choose that epigraph from Biden because it was profound, eloquent, bold or revealing. It’s from May 6, 2012 — just days before then-President Obama announced what can charitably be called his “evolution” on the matter of same-sex marriage.

It’s platitudinal. If I told you the quote came from Joel Osteen or Woody Allen or Kim Kardashian, you’d have no reason not to believe me. Unless it’s slapped atop a page laying out a candidate’s positions on LGBT issues, it means nothing.

Rather, it’s there because it’s safe. No matter how you feel about Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court case that legalized gay marriage nationally, it’s not something that’s going to get you angry. It’s meant to tell you, the reader, that this is what Biden’s positions are all about: It’s just about love, and whom you love, and loving, and being loved, and did I mention love?

The problem is that what’s contained therein isn’t quite as voter-safe as that. Consider what will be one of Biden’s most controversial moves on day one of his presidency: 

Reinstating Obama-era Title IX guidance allowing students to use the bathroom or locker room they best feel fits with their gender identity.

“On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity,” Biden’s website states.

“He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.”

He’s following through, too. Fox News reports that reinstating the guidance, revoked by the Trump administration in 2017, will be one of almost a dozen executive orders Biden plans to sign Wednesday.

Satmar in Yerushalyim Keep Yeshiva Open Against Regulations ... Then Throw Rocks At Police When They Try to Close it ..

 


Yes Yes ... it's not a typo .... there are actually thousands of Satmar Chassidim living in Israel despite the founder's prediction in 1967 that there won't be Torah in Israel in 20 years and yes they take money from the "Medina" absolutely ...

Now I don't know how much Torah they actually learn in Satmar ... but I see that they learned how to throw rocks and how to physically  injure their opponents ...  I see that they must be studying Jewish history well ... because they are very familiar with the word "Nazi" which they spew frothing at their mouths every time the Medina decides to save their lives!...

A Eulogy for Lost Truth Within the Torah Community

 


We are in the middle of an era of unprecedented upheaval, fury and dissent to the point of violence. But underneath the loud boisterous anger and arguments, we are also – and predominately – in an era of mourning.

Obviously, we are mourning the physical loss of loved ones to this relentless virus. We mourn the financial losses and terrifying instabilities that accompany it. The psychological toll of these losses is beyond measure. That deep-seated sorrow is generating much of the current political upheaval.

And yet beyond those physical losses we are also mourning the metaphysical loss of truth. Truth is a fragile creature. We have seen it twisted, manhandled and quite frankly, slaughtered like some sort of a choice sacrifice. On the altar of what? Fear and fear-based thinking. On the altar of fear without facts. In short, on the altar of conspiracy theories.

Conspiratorial ideas no longer seem to be merely whispered along the fringes. Rather they are increasingly becoming the dominant narrative in many pockets of the Torah community. Even more concerning, they are very often shared in the context of Torah teachings and wisdom.

Biden Warns His Staff to be "nice" after Having Just recently threatened Pres Trump that he "would have beat the Hell out of Trump if they were still in High School!

President Biden warned new members of his administration Wednesday that he’ll fire them "on the spot" if they fail to treat others nicely.

"If you’re ever working with me, and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot," Biden told new aides during a swearing-in ceremony following his inauguration. "On the spot."

He told the appointees that part of it is that he wants to root out systemic racism and that failing to maintain his standards of decorum would cost them their jobs.

"My dad used to have an expression: He said everyone, every single person, regardless of their background, is entitled to be treated with dignity," Biden said. "I expect you to do that for all the folks you deal with, all the folks we work for, the American people."

"No ifs, ands or buts – everybody, everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity," Biden concluded during his remarks Wednesday. "That's been missing in a big way for the last four years."

The stern call for workplace pleasantness comes after a 2020 presidential campaign in which he said he’d "beat the hell" out of his opponent, former President Donald Trump, if they were in high school together.

"If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him," Biden said on the campaign trail in March 2018, taking issue with some of Trump’s past remarks.


The statement prompted a fiery rebuke from Trump and stood out as Biden tried to campaign on a platform of unity and normalcy – concepts he mentioned during his inaugural address Wednesday.

"We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature," he said. "For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. No progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos. This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward."

Rabbi Bans the "5 Towns Jewish Times" Gets Threatened

In the picture, Gila Jedwab, a "Five Towns Jewish Times" columnist, is seen standing outside the Capitol building with the protestors in the background smiling broadly and with her hands outstretched.

 Rabbi Kenneth Hain and other leaders of Congregation Beth Sholom in Lawrence, New York, banned the 5 Towns Jewish Times from their synagogue because the newspaper featured a front-page photo of one of its columnists at the January 6 protests in Washington, DC

When the paper arrived Friday on Hain’s doorstep, the front page was obscured by a threatening note calling on the rabbi to resign from his pulpit.
“You are aligning your behavior with the radical anti American Democrats who are now in full gear to destroy not only America, but who are poised to target Israel and all Jews,” the note read.
The note was not signed, but its author apparently is known to the Hain family, according to the Long Island Herald.
It’s the latest sign of the divisions within Orthodox communities over the results of the 2020 presidential election and its aftermath.
The photo that spurred the synagogue ban was of a local dentist and Trump supporter standing in front of the protests on the same day that a mob would descend on the Capitol. 

“The photo that appeared on the first page of the 5 Towns Jewish Times this week was an outrageous Chilul Hashem,” Beth Sholom leaders wrote to the synagogue’s members on January 8, using a term that means a desecration of God’s name.

Larry Gordon, the editor of the 5 Towns Jewish Times, apologized for the photo choice, but not before Beth Sholom and one other large local synagogue, the Young Israel of Woodmere, banned the newspaper from their buildings.
Supporters of the paper took out an ad in the newspaper the week after the controversial front page.
“We stand proudly with the 5TJT in the face of silencing and censorship,” the ad, paid for by “friends of the 5TJT,” read.
According to the Long Island Herald, Hain’s wife, Nancy, reported the note addressed to her husband to the Jewish Alliance for Dialogue and Engagement, a local group that has focused on promoting the coronavirus vaccine, in a WhatsApp group.
“We will secure the photo and other info sent to the local Rabbi to give [to] police for follow up investigation,” she wrote. “Will let you know when/if there is more. Thanks for the support & good wishes. This is being taken very seriously by the Shul, its security & us.”

* it should be noted that the good rabbi did not ban any newspapers that reported the BLM riots and anarchy in good light....

Mark the Day Biden Got Inaugurated

 


As our President Donald J. Trump prepares to leave the White House, I am making this post so it will show back up as a future memory on my timeline. This isn’t a political dispute. I am genuinely curious what the next 4 years will bring:


Today is the Biden/Harris Inauguration.
• Gas is currently $2.55 per gallon.
• Interest rates are 2.25 percent for a 30-year mortgage.
• The stock market closed at 30829.40 though we have been fighting COVID for 11 months.
• Our GDP growth for the 3rd Qtr was 33.1 percent.
• We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well.
• We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years.
• North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles.
• ISIS has not been heard from for over 3 years.
• The housing market is the strongest it has been in years.
• Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell well.
• And let’s not forget that peace deals in the Middle East were signed by 4 countries—unprecedented!
• Unemployment sits at 6.7% in spite of COVID.

#Biden takes over on 1-20-21. Let's see how the next four years fair. God bless America! 馃嚭馃嚫馃檹馃徎 Thank you President Trump!

Chareidie Radio Station asks: How Will a Child React When he Grows Up Finding out that He Murdered His Grandfather by Going to School Against Regulations



Haredi host Dudi Shwamenfeld from Kol Barama radio, who on Tuesday buried his father who was a victim of Covid-19, went on Reshet Bet radio Wednesday morning to express his anger at the repeated violations of the pandemic regulations in the Haredi sector.

Kol BaRama is a Haredi radio station based in Bnei Brak, broadcasting since 2009 seven days a week, from Saturday night until Friday afternoon.

“These are murderers and people who understand that this can kill,” Shwamenfeld told Reshet Bet. “I don’t understand what’s happening here around me, especially when it comes to the Haredim, because the sanctity of life is our greatest value.”

“You are righteous,” he said about Israeli Haredim, “Is there anything you won’t do to save every life? What’s happened to us?”

Shwamenfeld said his father was probably infected by his brother, who is mentally disabled.

Being Silenced is Not Golden


 Virtually all major media, the intelligentsia, all the Democrats, and even many Republicans tell us that the man we supported for President is guilty of "sedition." That he led an "insurrection" in an "attempted coup" or "putsch" that sought to destroy democracy in America.

We are guilty by association with cretins wearing "Camp Auschwitz" shirts who attacked the high citadel of America. We should cower in silence and shame over the travesty and horror that we aided and abetted. We must be fired from our jobs, cast out of polite society, and have our social media accounts shut down. Even more so, if we dare to continue asserting that there were serious questions about the election that were never properly resolved.

In fact, all such claims have been thoroughly “debunked”; all the lawsuits Trump’s team brought were tossed out of court for lack of evidence. Senators Cruz and Hawley, who (while denouncing the rioters in the strongest terms) persisted in objecting to the certification of the elections, should be thrown out of office and perhaps charged with sedition.

Moreover, as religious Jews, we are being scolded that we ought to be ashamed of ourselves for supporting such a monster – whom the smart people knew all along was the second coming of Hitler讬诪"砖 . We should engage in a cheshbon hanefesh (personal spiritual accounting) for the terrible '讞讬诇讜诇 讛 (desecration of G-d’s honor) that we caused by advocating for such an obvious degenerate. We must hang our heads in shame before the wiser, all-knowing liberals who always knew that Joe Biden and the Democrats were morally superior. After all, they have long been warning us that Trump is a rabble-rousing, incompetent, corrupt, arrogant white supremacist who has now proved to be the greatest imaginable danger to America and the world. We must submit to the silencing of our voices and accept our deserved lot as defeated and "canceled," while our political opponents use their now unbridled power to change America forever.

I believe that it is crucial for us – the 71 million who voted for Donald Trump and against Joe Biden – to refuse to allow ourselves to be written off due to the awful actions of a relatively tiny bunch of criminals. (They were only one or two percent of those who came to the Trump rally, let alone the many millions who were not there at all.) Those misguided morons did so much damage – not so much to the United States – but primarily to Trump supporters and the legacy of Trump himself.

It is crucial that 70 million-plus people not feel that their voice has been stolen from them – which is exactly what the left is now trying to do in every possible way.

"Blood on rabbis’ hands," ZAKA Head Yehuda Meshi Zahav Slams Violators Of COVID-19 Regulations: ‘Worse Than Holocaust Deniers’

 Yehuda Meshi Zahav, the director and founder of ZAKA, lost his mother Sora Zisel to coronavirus this week, less than a month after his brother died from a serious illness. The pain of losing his mother is worse however for Meshi Zahav, who says that for ten months his parents were protected “like an Esrog” by their children.

“My mother was perfectly healthy, active, constantly giving, she’d never had a problem with her lungs before.,” Meshi Zahav said in a Ynet interview. “My brother went away before Chanukah and family members made a Chanukah party with my parents. Everyone at the party got sick and she gradually became more sick until she passed away.”

With coronavirus rates skyrocketing in Israel, the Chareidi public is suffering the most from the third wave, with an estimated 1 in 3 of those infected belonging to the Chareidi sector. Meshi Zahav does not mince words about Chareidim who ignore COVID-19 regulations.

President Trump’s Grandson Sings Hashem Melech As Ivanka Looks On and "sheps nachos"

 A clip showing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s son singing Jewish songs in his classroom as his parents watch him on Zoom has emerged on social media sites. The clip demonstrates the Chabad-style Jewish education being given to former president Donald Trump’s Jewish grandson.

Jared and Ivanka had pulled their children out of the school they were studying in three months ago since it did not have many in-person classes during the pandemic, whereas their current school, the Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy in suburban Maryland, offered more such classes. However it appears that the children will once again be changing schools as the parents intend to relocate to Florida in the near future.

New York Times Writer Arrested ....Was Secret Iranian Agent


 A Massachusetts-based political scientist and author, who wrote for the New York Times is accused of secretly working for the government of Iran while lobbying U.S. officials on issues like nuclear policy, federal authorities said Tuesday.

Kaveh Lotfolah Afrasiabi was arrested by FBI agents at his home in Watertown, Massachusetts, on Monday, officials said. He is charged in New York City federal court with acting and conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of Iran.

Authorities said Afrasiabi, an Iranian citizen and lawful permanent U.S. resident, has been paid by Iranian diplomats assigned to the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations in New York City since at least 2007. At the same time, he made TV appearances, wrote articles and lobbied U.S. officials to support the Iranian government’s agenda, officials said. His articles included over a dozen opinion articles and letters to the editor published by The New York Times under the name Kaveh Afrasiabi.

BIDEN IN THE OVAL: Says Trump Left “Gracious Letter”; Signs 17 Executive Orders Reversing Policies.. Allows Thousands of Arabs To Flood USA ..Mask Mandate



 President Joe Biden said his predecessor left him a “very generous letter” before departing office.

Speaking from behind the Resolute Desk, Biden said he would not reveal the contents of the letter out of respect for former President Donald Trump.

“The President wrote a very generous letter,” Biden said. “Because it was private I will not talk about it until I talk to him.”

Meanwhile, Biden signed a total of 17 executive orders and actions in the Oval Office on Wednesday evening. The orders will overturn several Trump-era orders, and were diverse in their impact, ranging from a mask mandate on all federal property to revisions of directives introduced by former President Donald Trump, including halting the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Biden’s first orders also recommitted the U.S. to the World Health Organization, ended the so-called Muslim travel ban and asked for an extension of a student loan payments pause.

The new president plans to sign several other orders throughout his first week in office; the White House is expected to announce subsequent orders in the coming days.

One of those executive orders was to rejoin the U.S. into the Paris climate agreement – “as of today”.

Consulting With HaRav Chaim, Rav Lau Declares World Tefillah On Thursday

 


After consulting with HaRav Chaim Kanievsky on Wednesday and speaking with leaders of Jewish kehillos around the world, Israel’s Chief Rabbi Rav Dovid Lau declared Thursday as a day for a world tefillah to end the pandemic.

The tefilla will be led by HaRav Lau (without a congregation due to health regulations) at Kever Rochel on Thursday at 4 p.m. (Israeli time) and will be broadcast live. At the same time, public tefillos will be held in Jewish communities in countries throughout the world. Those who can fast until chatzos should do so.

“The pandemic has grown considerably worse in recent days and ‘outside the sword bereaves and terror reigns within,'” wrote Rav Lau. “Terrible disasters are befalling us every day. The virus doesn’t discriminate – it harms the elderly, the young – fathers and mothers of small children. Unfortunately, many of them pass away and thousands are in distress and in need of tefillah and a cry for siyata d’Shimaya.”

“After I consulted with HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, we are declaring a day of world tefillah, during which we all will, as one person and with one heart, cry out to Avinu Malkeinu – 诪谞注 诪讙讬驻讛 诪谞讞诇转讱.”

“It is appropriate for all Kehillos Yisrael to hold special tefillos on this day, including Tehillim and Selichos, as well [as with the participation of] Tinokos shel beis Rabban – throughout the Diaspora – to cry out the cry of the entire Am Yisrael on this day in a Tefillas Rabbim – which has great power in Shamayim.”

“The tefillos will be held according to regulations, each person in his own place. Anyone who can fast half a day should do so. We will accept upon ourselves the yoke of Malchus Shamayim, we will add Avinu Malkeinu and we will cry out to the Healer of all flesh to eradicate the mageifah from His world.”
