Anne Frank’s Stepsister Calls Donald Trump ‘another Hitler’

The stepsister of Anne Frank compares billionaire GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump to Hitler in a new essay for Newsweek.

Eva Schloss, 86, was a friend of Anne’s in Amsterdam before their families were found by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Anne died along with her mother at Bergen-Belsen, but her diary became a classic work of literature about a Jewish family’s life during Hitler’s reign.

“If Donald Trump becomes the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster,” she said in the essay, marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. “I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism.”

Trump was called “a fascist” by Jeb Bush adviser Max Boot in November and a British newspaper a few weeks later asked readers “Who Said It: Donald Trump or Adolf Hitler?”

Former Republican governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman criticized Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans and Muslims to CNN in December.

“If you go and look at your history and you read your history in the lead-up to the Second World War, this is the kind of rhetoric that allowed Hitler to move forward,” she said. “Because you have people who were scared the economy was bad, they want someone to blame.”

Millions Resent Being Put in Horrible Position of Siding with Megyn Kelly

(The Borowitz Report)—Millions of Americans are expressing their resentment and outrage at being put in the appalling position of siding with the Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, a state of affairs that many are calling “intolerable.”

“Never in a million years did I envision a situation where I would be on the same side as Megyn Kelly,” Tracy Klugian, of Butte, Montana, said. “Now that I find myself in just such a situation, let me say this: it’s horrible. Truly horrible.”

“Putting people through the ordeal of siding with Megyn Kelly could be the worst thing Donald Trump has done in this campaign,” Jervis Kentwell, of Norwalk, Connecticut, said. “I know he thinks he’s invulnerable or whatever, but it’s hard to see him recovering from this.”

Harland Dorrinson, a psychologist from Akron, Ohio, has created an online community for people who are suffering from the emotional trauma of momentarily siding with Megyn Kelly.

“People who have despised Megyn Kelly for years are experiencing a sudden loss of identity and a feeling of emptiness,” he said. “They’re complaining of persistent headaches and nausea. There is a lot of hurt out there.”

Carol Foyler, of Tacoma, Washington, worries about the “long-term implications” of being forced to side with Megyn Kelly. “Is there some scenario where I might be forced to side with Bill O’Reilly, or Hannity?” she asked. “It’s a goddam slippery slope.”

Dangerous Virus To Pregnant Women Called ZIKA Now In U.S.

zika virus

There is a new virus called ZIKA which  is running rampant in Brazil. Since this past November there have been 4,180 cases reported.  Two  pregnant women from Illinois have tested positive for this virus.Both were vacationing in Brazil.

One lady in the United States who returned from Brazil her Hawaiian baby was born with microcephaly.

Here are some important things to know:

What is Zika and why is it so serious?
The Zika virus is a flavivirus, part of the same family as yellow fever, West Nile, chikungunya and dengue. But unlike some of those viruses, there is no vaccine to prevent Zika or medicine to treat the infection.

Zika is commanding worldwide attention because of an alarming connection between the virus and microcephaly, a neurological disorder that results in babies being born with abnormally small heads. This causes severe developmental issues and sometimes death.

What is the Zika virus?
Since November, Brazil has seen 4,180 cases of microcephaly in babies born to women who were infected with Zika during their pregnancies. To put that in perspective, there were only 146 cases in 2014. So far, 51 babies have died.

Other Latin American countries are now seeing cases in newborns as well, while in the United States one Hawaiian baby was born with microcephaly after his mother returned from Brazil. In Illinois, two pregnant women who traveled to Latin America have tested positive for the virus; health officials are monitoring their pregnancies.

The CDC is also asking OB-GYNs to review fetal ultrasounds and do maternal testing for any pregnant woman who has traveled to one of the 24 countries where Zika is currently active.

A smaller outbreak of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare autoimmune disorder that can lead to life-threatening paralysis, is also linked to Zika in a several countries.

Abe Vigoda, ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Godfather’ Star, Dies at 94

Abe Vigoda, the beloved actor known for playing Det. Fish on Barney Miller and mobster Sal Tessio in The Godfather, and for weathering years of mistaken reports about his death, died in his sleep in New Jersey on Tuesday, January 26, at the age of 94.

Audiences first got to know the actor in 1972’s The Godfather, when the then 51-year-old actor played Tessio, a longtime friend and associate of the Corleone family who’s killed when the Corleones find out he’s been working with a rival mob family.

In 1975, Vigoda began playing Det. Phil Fish on the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning ABC sitcom Barney Miller. Fish was a cantankerous New York City detective whose advancing age had led to a lot of physical ailments, namely a persistent hemorrhoids issue that fed his grumpiness and made the squad’s bathroom one of his frequent hangouts.

The role earned Vigoda three Emmy nominations, and led to a spin-off,Fish, in which an eventually-retired Fish and his wife Bernice (Florence Stanley) raised a group of foster children (including one played by a pre-Diff’rent Strokes Todd Bridges).

Message From A Concerned Citizen

letter to the editor
Supervisor Weinstein has had almost absolute control of town government for the last six years mainly due to a solid 3-2 Republican voting majority on the Town Board. He retained or added to an overwhelming number of loyal Republicans as Heads of various Town Departments, the Town Attorney’s office, the Town Comptroller, and appointed members to the powerful Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals. This is the way political patronage has worked in Amherst for many, many years of one party control.

With the last election the Town Board majority flipped to a real but arguably less solid 3-2 Democrat majority, putting Republican control of town government under it’s first real threat in years. Make no mistake, there are still tons of Republican’s still holding the reins of power in the town as Department Heads, and members of both the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals. The only substantial loss so far seems to be with Town Board appointments that usually went to Republicans, now going to Democrats, such as the Town Attorney’s office and possibly the Town Comptroller.

The citadel of Republican domination of town government, the Town Board is now where the first cracks in the Republican political armor is starting to be seen. This is most apparent in the behavior of Supervisor Weinstein at Town Board meetings, with his expression of excessive political invective toward perceived enemies, and his disregard for the publics right to be heard at meetings. The residents of Amherst have become increasing distrustful of his stewardship as they witnessed how a town government dominated by a single political party, can become effectively controlled by their developer friends and their money.

Supervisor Weinstein seems to have decided to use his personal authority as supervisor to stop negative public comment at Town Board meetings, by interpreting the rules of order any way he pleases since he knows the people don’t have the power to challenge his rulings. He stops them in mid-sentence with his “out of order” proclamations, and tells them to sit down. He stops other Town Board members from requesting that he move forward with committee liaison appointments in a timely manner with claims that New York State law gives him the ultimate authority of matters of town government.

Political change has happened, and the supervisor needs to deal with it in a more reasonable manner. Sadly for town residents he seems to have made a political judgment that he can prevent certain people from speaking at town meetings simply because he has the power to quash critical commentary. Apparently he feels the political price will be minor since it’s most probably coming from a few disaffected Democrats, and therefore no real threat in the next election. I wonder if he has correctly calculated the possible downside of public reaction to his current behavior?
