"A serious man": the poetic side of self-hatred

Gilad Atzmon views Joel and Ethan Coen’s film “A serious man”  as “a cinematic allegory of Jewish cultural detachment from nature” and “a masterpiece that elaborates on the abnormalities of the Jewish tribal existence”. It “reflects on Jewish Diaspora life, Jewish segregation and the misery of operating within the kosher tribal template”.

"'A serious man' does not explicitly touch upon issues related to Israel, Zionism, occupation, organ harvesting or anything distinctly identified with the Jewish state... Yet, [it] portrays a clear message regarding Israel and Zionism, for Israel is the Jewish state and, in spite of the Zionist promise to erect a civilized nation, Israel functions as a Jewish ghetto and is subject to all the symptoms of abnormality conveyed by the Coens."

White House Christmas decor invites criticism

Ornaments including an orb depicting former Chinese leader Mao Zedong and another showing drag queen Hedda Lettuce

Designer Simon Doonan, who was in charge of organising Christmas decorations at the White House, did not respond to calls for comment. Neither did the White House.

Guess they were busy doing make up and stuff...

Thankful on Thanksgiving

While many Americans attempt to be thankful for anything in these trying and evil times, I am truly thankful there are people like Mike, who has created this site to fight for truth and decency against the murderous, hateful, worst examples of our species.

As we remember and reflect upon the gratitude we feel for the wonder that is in our lives, and the people whose talent, love, and inspiration guides us, this is for Mike Rivero, a true American hero and a beacon for the world.

Thanks MIke.

Connections

The series "Connections" was mentioned by a caller a few days ago. This part of the series mentions something quite deep about how with prosperity the lower classes were able to enjoy life rather than fight wars (for their feudal masters). Very interesting.

Dresses, not suicide vests, parade at Pakistan's Fashion Week

In a country where the all-enveloping burqa is common for women and a hijab to hide the hair or full face is growing in popularity, daring amounts of female skin were on display.

When Ancient Artifacts Become Political Pawns

Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, announced that his country wanted its queen handed back forthwith, unless Germany could prove that the 3,500-year-old bust of Akhenaten’s wife wasn’t spirited illegally out of Egypt nearly a century ago.
Mr. Hawass also recently fired a shot at France, demanding the Louvre return five fresco fragments it purchased in 2000 and 2003 from a gallery and at auction. They belonged to a 3,200-year-old tomb near Luxor and had been in storage at the museum.
But Jewish groups and prominent French and German intellectuals (not the Israeli government, though) campaigned against Mr. Hosny. When asked in Egypt’s Parliament last year about the presence of Israeli books in Alexandria’s library, Mr. Hosny said: “Let’s burn these books. If there are any, I will burn them myself before you.”

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo! (poem)

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo!

Like (at our best) hackers, our wings far from untested,
effective per accindens, though improbably guessed at;
more impossibly intended, (in practice) depending, per...haps
on our ablity to sense it - if - it's initially mapped.
no: philosophies without hammers, no, nor dreams lacking anvils,
status threatening, can strike at the hearts of immortals:
haven't they stayed enough staid enough stated, and - quo -
alterii vadis, warranto, quorum, quid pro

reason enough (should reason persever) to know & to will & to dare demand never
ever be told odds that one changes if clever.

Obama says 9-11 victims were "sacrifice?"

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president would "speak about what the day means and the sacrifices of thousands, not just at the Pentagon, but in Pennsylvania and certainly and most obviously in New York".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am linking to the cache of this story because this particular quote has already been expunged from the story.

From a reader: Isn't the whole idea about sacrifice is that it is to be something of value to the person giving it up? A nation "sacrifices" it's young people (its future) in war for the "greater good of protecting the nation". Parents make sacrifices for their children (they give up some things important to them in order to provide for their children) Ancient priests convinced their followers to give up a beautiful young woman or man to appease an angry God.

POTUS, I don't believe, is inclined to make these kind of semantic errors, he is well-educated and very well spoken. I can only believe that this means he is admitting that victims of 9/11 were sacrificed by those in the American Government who saw it (and continue to see it) as necessary for the greater good.

The creation of "terrorism" has been an excuse for a rapid evolution of sophisticated weaponry in the US military and the assault on Saddam - televised globally - gave the world the message that the US has technological superiority over all other nations and solidified their position as a nation to be feared and obeyed (at least that is what they hoped).

The Chop Shop.. (Is that kidney kosher ?)... blues.

The Chop Shop.. talkin' blues

I went to see my Rabbi, I’d been felling kind of sick.. Does he know a doctor who might cure me real quick?.. I met the good Doctor the very next day, He said my kidneys were shot, so how much could I pay?. I said plenty because, I’m selling ecstasy , So he told me of a place that would be just right for me.

The clinic door was open, this place must be Blessed.. I walked right in and sat on down in the chair next to the desk.

They had row of lungs, and corneas on ice, the donors wouldn’t need them in paradise.
I saw rows of freezer chests and cases; one of freezers was for transplanting faces.

Kseniya Simonova's Amazing Sand Drawing

A good friend of mine sent this to me, and I felt compelled to share. If more and more people use such beautiful and moving mediums to convey their disgust for war and conquest, maybe we can wake up enough people to bring it to a screeching halt..

Obama Posters On Government Property Allowed; Anti-Obama Posters Called “Vandalism”

In the wake of a Florida news station covering the “vandalism” of Obama as Joker posters going up around the country, Infowars has discovered an Obama quote published in The Washington Post thanking Obamanoids for posting the artwork of Shepard Fairey on government property. Fairey created the now famous image of Obama used during the election.

“I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign,” Obama wrote the artist last year. “The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign.

Woman in hot water after attacking the Mona Lisa with a mug of English Breakfast tea

Doctors were trying to assess whether she was suffering from Stendhal Syndrome, a rare condition that causes dizziness, confusion or violent acts when an individual is exposed to art.

Feral Houses

Like some of the dogs I've seen using these houses as shelter (I followed a whole pack into #9 last week), these houses are reverting to a wild state, as from domestication, a word derived itself from domesticus (the Latin for belonging to the domus, or house). Now these houses are feralis. They belong only to the dead.

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.

Apparently we haven't learned anything in 120 years.

"Over the Rainbow"

This writer just completed a six-part series on Ellen Brown's remarkable 2007 book titled "Web of Debt." This article follows from it by picking up on the theme she struck, using L. Frank Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" as a combination parable, monetary allegory, and political manifesto for change at a time it's most needed.

Astronauts Watch Star Trek Movie From Space

NASA officials fulfilled the wishes of a Star Trek fan who didn’t want to miss the premiere because of his space journey. They beamed the movie to the International Space Station. Three astronauts enjoyed the special preview of the movie at the station.

US astronaut Michael Barratt requested this movie before he boarded the space shuttle in March. He told NASA officials that he was a big fan of the Star Trek TV series and didn’t want to miss J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek.

NASA officials agreed and reformatted the movie so that the astronauts at the station can watch it on their laptop. NASA beamed the movie to the station on Friday morning.

Critique of Israel not anti-Semitism: Margolyes

One of the things that I didn't expect was that the Australian Jewish community would find it impossible to have a dialogue.

Is this play critical of Israel? Yes, it is, very critical of Israel. That doesn't mean it is anti-Semitic.

Can theatre make a difference? I hope it can, because otherwise I have wasted my whole life in something irrelevant.

Controversial play about Israeli history getting Canadian premiere

A controversial new play about Israeli history that has been slammed by some as anti-Semitic and praised by others as thought-provoking is set to make its Canadian premiere in Montreal on Sunday.

"Seven Jewish Children - A Play for Gaza" is a 10-minute performance by British playwright Caryl Churchill, inspired in part by the most recent Gaza conflict.

The play includes several scenes where Israeli adults ponder how they will explain key moments in Israeli and Jewish history to their children, who are never seen on stage.

The chronological work begins with the Holocaust and ends with the recent Israeli offensive in Gaza.

Bernanke put you on the hook for 2 trillion and counting. You are an involuntary investor

Bloomberg.com -The public is an “involuntary investor” in the nation’s banks, according to an April 15 court filing by Bloomberg.

In the report, the Fed detailed its assets in three limited liability corporations, all called Maiden Lane for a street in Lower Manhattan that runs past the New York Fed.

The losses become real if the principal isn’t returned.

Swimming Without a Suit - And Masterbating in the Pool - Little Tommy Friedman

The New York Times [Tom Friedman gets this week's boner award. He pathetically draws on popular clichés handed down to his likelier recipients -the Long Island dead and dying Mall culture -from none other than the likes of the Market Shill from Omaha -to wit - "only when the tide goes out do you find out who is not wearing a bathing suit." So true, -says Tom Friedman.

Spare me the underwater farts -you asshole-Friedman.

Tom gives us this too: There are millions of kids who are in modern suburban schools “who don’t realize how far behind they are,” said Matt Miller, one of the authors. “They are being prepared for $12-an-hour jobs — not $40 to $50 an hour.”

A song to keep you going #1

First in a series of songs that inspire "us."

This one by Phil Collins hit me like a ton of bricks - I distinctly remember where I was and what grocery store I was in and what aisle where I really "heard" it playing over the grocery store speakers. I don't want to suggest Collins is some sort of fellow traveler of ours, but geez, these lyrics make you wonder a bit.

"they don't tell me nothing - so I find out what I can"

"there's a fire burning right outside my door."

"seems so long I've been waiting - still don't know what for."

"cause I've been a prisoner all my life..."

"mine's an ordinary life"

"they don't THINK THAT I LISTEN, BUT I KNOW WHO THEY ARE"

A Request from Michael Moore

Friends,

I am in the middle of shooting my next movie and I am looking for a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know. Based on those who have already contacted me, I believe there are a number of you who know "the real deal" about the abuses that have been happening. You have information that the American people need to hear. I am humbly asking you for a moment of courage, to be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history.

All correspondence with me will be kept confidential. Your identity will be protected and you will decide to what extent you wish to participate in telling the greatest crime story ever told. --MM

A violinist in the Metro

This article has haunted me since I read it last year.. In other words, the greatest artists in the world never get recognized, because they are not connected to the Jewish artists co-op with booking agents and promo people.. In other words.. Why don't we look at the Jewish Zionist connections of the talent that is out there?..

The Art game is the same game as the News Game.. Only Jewish Zionist artists are allowed to make the Big Time, or 'Become News Anchors'.. Or Movie Stars for that matter.. Unless you are connected to Zionism/Communism you go nowhere in America.

The greatest modern up to date paintings in the world are in thrift shops with a price of a hundred bucks cash.

The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

Anyone in his education who has neglected to read every word Mark Twain ever wrote has simply missed the greater part of the meaning and opportunity of life. Twain is reputed to be The Great Man of American Literature, but this appreciation of him, while true, misses the mark or this truly great man.

To fathom the greatness of a truly great man, a sufficient lapse of time must pass before he is far enough away from us so that we might measure the greatness of such a great man.

Alexander the Great by this measure quickly gained his fame.

Willard Wigan micro sculptor

Paying attention to small details.. He sold his works for $20 million, and he can't read or write.. so he claims.

He seems like a very dedicated artist.. More than likely he is.

It would seem impossible to do what he has done without laser tooling of some sort.. But who know.. Where there is a will there is a way.

This is the first music/audio/visual thread.

I am imagining that many WRH readers are creative types, and perhaps have a musical video, or audio, they would like to share.. So that the other members have an idea of the personality in back of the user name.

I'll go ahead and post a youtube of me singing The Dogshit blues. I'm hoping somebody else will post one of their own original music videos or mp3s. If it ain't original..Mike can get in trouble ..I think... Keep it original.. please.
