Priti Patel was sacked from her junior minister post, why, for unofficial liaisons with the MOSSAD in Israel, whilst on “holiday”, in breach of home-office rules.

Priti Patel’s future is hanging in the balance after it emerged she held two further unauthorised meetings with senior Israeli politicians without telling Downing Street.

The International Development secretary cut short a visit to Africa and has been ordered to fly back to London by Theresa May, the Prime Minister this morning.

There is growing speculation that she could be sacked this morning after she admitted she met the Israeli public security minister in September in Parliament and a senior official from the Israeli foreign minister in…

To point this out is not antisemitic.

On Anti Semitism, as a student of Maimonides and his Guide for the perplexed to the Torah see this post. . 

For Gnasher Jew and the Zealots of the Tory Party Central Office see these posts.

I am a friend of Israel, I am not though a supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu and Netenjahu Zionism. I am though what might be termed a Soft Zionist. A parallel comparison might be say when back in the 70’s I supported the Anti Apartheid Campaign but did not consider this position to be an argument which could extend to saying that South Africa should cease to Exist, similarly supporting BDS is not in any way logically extended to any argument for the destruction of the State of Israel.

Rabbi Hillel famously said when asked to sum up the Torah in a sentence.

On the “Golden Rule”

Once there was a gentile who came before Shammai, and said to him: “Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot. Shammai pushed him aside with the measuring stick he was holding. The same fellow came before Hillel, and Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it.”  – Babylonian TalmudShabbat 31a

Ten Yiddish Expressions You Should Know

By Michael

background image 186

For a language originally spoken only by Eastern European Jews, Yiddish has certainly found its way into common English. My wife was raised in a farming region in the American Midwest and never knew any Jewish people as a child, so she was surprised when I informed her that she uses Yiddish words all the time. Most Yiddish words comes from German, as well as Hebrew and the Slavic languages, but they’ve entered the popular English language through the entertainment industry and East Coast American society. I like the sound of Yiddish words that begin with the letter S, especially sh, and here are some of my favourites.

1. shlep
To drag, traditionally something you don’t really need; to carry unwillingly. When people “shlep around,” they are dragging themselves, perhaps slouchingly. On vacation, when I’m the one who ends up carrying the heavy suitcase I begged my wife to leave at home, I shlep it.

2. shlemiel
A clumsy, inept person, similar to a klutz (also a Yiddish word). The kind of person who always spills his soup.

3. shlimazel
Someone with constant bad luck. When the shlemiel spills his soup, he probably spills it on the shlimazel. Fans of the TV sitcom “Laverne and Shirley” remember these two words from the Yiddish-American hopscotch chant that opened each show.

4. shmooze
Chat, make small talk, converse about nothing in particular. But at Hollywood parties, guests often schmooze with people they want to impress.

5. shmaltzy
Excessively sentimental, gushing, flattering, over-the-top, corny. This word describes some of Hollywood’s most famous films. From shmaltz, which means chicken fat or grease.

6. schlock
Cheap, shoddy, or inferior, as in, “I don’t know why I bought this schlocky souvenir.”

7. spiel
A long, involved sales pitch, as in, “I had to listen to his whole spiel before I found out what he really wanted.” From the German word for play.

8. schmuck
Often used as an insulting word for a self-made fool, but you shouldn’t use it in polite company at all, since it refers to male anatomy.

9. shalom
It means “deep peace,” and isn’t that a more meaningful greeting than “Hi, how are ya?”

10. shtik
Something you’re known for doing, an entertainer’s routine, an actor’s bit, stage business; a gimmick often done to draw attention to yourself.

Update: We published a new post with 40 Yiddish words that you should check out!

The Polling Shift it seems is seismic, I have little doubt that Dominic Cummings Bat Message was provoked by Doorstep returns showing that the Message of getting Brino Done was not cutting through. Another unfattened pig is failing to deliver as we approach market Day. BoJo in his own waý is afflicted with the same hubristic arrogance as May Bot in his Case its more Bluster than Bot and More Fudge and Fake than Weak and Wobbly.

On the referendum #34: BATSIGNAL!! DON’T LET CORBYN-STURGEON CHEAT A SECOND REFERENDUM WITH MILLIONS OF FOREIGN VOTES

Dear Vote Leave supporters

LET’S HONOUR THE REFERENDUM RESULT AND GET BREXIT DONE SO THE COUNTRY CAN MOVE ON

Summary: Tell your family and friends face-to-face: if Boris doesn’t get a majority, then Corbyn and Sturgeon will control the government, their official policy is to give the vote to millions of foreign citizens to cheat their second referendum, we’ll all get screwed on taxes, Parliament will drag the whole country into crisis, and immigration will return to being a central issue in politics instead of being marginalised by Brexit…

I know why many are tempted to vote for Corbyn. Under Cameron and May, there were some big decisions about priorities that were wrong. Most importantly, from summer 2016 Hammond repeatedly blocked cash for the NHS and other services. In 2016 people voted for change — the Conservative Party didn’t hear that properly before the referendum and they didn’t hear it properly after the referendum.

But Boris did hear the demand for change and he will deliver it.

 

CONCLUSION

You will see many polls in the coming days. Some will say Boris will win. Trust me, as someone who has worked on lots of campaigns, things are MUCH tighter than they seem and there is a very real possibility of a hung parliament.

Without a majority, the nightmare continues. ALL other MPs will gang together to stop Brexit and give EU citizens the vote. It’s that simple.

 

In Short This is Cummings saying Brino Boris the spaffle womble is blowing it, a week has been a long time in the politics of this GE and BoJo , Farage and the rest have floundered, Corbyn has actually been the most solid of the lot and his team seems more diverse, no Steve Baker, No Mogg, no Bill Cash, in short none of the proper tory Brexeteers are on show, Why? I’ll tell you why its because Brino is a Lie, a big fat glass full of BRINO cool-aid.

Many moons ago I visited the offices of an Irish Property developer just setting up in London Docklands. The Top Spade of this outfit was keen to impress upon me the shortcomings in the overthunk incompetence of me and my fellow Commercial Estate Agents. He påroceeded to explain to me about the Rule of three and how Land for development should be properly appraised.

“Yu see there Mr Lewis , tis verry simple ya know. Now how I explain it is this, It a Turd , a Turd and A Turd. that’s a Turd for your Ground, a Trurd for your buildings and a turd for your other costs and your profit.”

The present life of man, O king, seems to me, in comparison of that time which is unknown to us, like to the swift flight of a sparrow through the room wherein you sit at supper in winter, with your commanders and ministers, and a good fire in the midst, whilst the storms of rain and snow prevail abroad; the sparrow, I say, flying in at one door, and immediately out at another, whilst he is within, is safe from the wintry storm; but after a short space of fair weather, he immediately vanishes out of your sight, into the dark winter from which he had emerged. So this life of man appears for a short space, but of what went before, or what is to follow, we are utterly ignorant. If therefore, this new doctrine contains something more certain, it seems justly to deserve to be followed.

https://lordashcroftpolls.com/2019/11/my-perspective-on-the-uk-and-us-elections-and-how-politics-ended-up-like-this/#more-16252 This analysis from Lord Ashcroft is excellent Tim. The Focus Group write-ups are also highly entertaining and very informative for slices of the mood music of the mundane the ordinary and Precarious lives of the Left Behind Fly over cannon fodder of Neo-Liberal Elitism.
And a Word on FIllial rivalry from Peter Hitchins.

His Brother.

“The last thing that Peter and I agreed on was the impeachment of President Clinton. But this is not simply a political-party difference. These things rarely are. In England, for instance, Sir Charles Powell is an eminent figure. He first rose to fame as a foreign-policy adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. His younger brother Jonathan Powell is chief of staff to Prime Minister Tony Blair. But many people do not even know that they are related, because they resolutely decline to pronounce the family name in the same way. Sir Charles prefers to say it so as to rhyme with “pole,” the slightly affected form that was also insisted upon by that supreme novelist of the English elite, Anthony Powell. Young Jonathan, perhaps more the man of the people, chooses to do what most readers of the name would do, rhyme it with “towel.” I know for a fact that one political-summit trip meant that the brotherly duo had to board the same official aircraft. This did not mean, however, that they had to exchange a single word with each other.
The Poleists and Towelists have nothing on the Hitchenses.”

A favourite Novel of mine is the Scheme for Full Employment, it is Dry Kafkaesque absurdism done at it’s best. There are two Factions, The WOWrk to Rulers and Early Swervers, both factions are engaged in an Enterprise of the circular manufacture and dismantling of UNI Vans. Its an Allegory of some sort I would be interested if anyone else has read it.
