  1. Who voted to import a devastating quantity of sub-prime human capital? Can something that is a liability and not an asset even be called “capital”? I think not. Note, too, the convenient non-requirement of the imports to the industrial-level poisoning urged of the native inhabitants. This amounts to an accelerated exchange of the demographic. Healthy, expensive, non-producers are reverse-flushed into an already weakening economy. The result can only be the failure of the government’s stated goal of shoring up much-needed labour, while adding to the burden of the dwindling productive class.

    Once again — A popular, attractive, honest, and competent Republican candidate had his race taken from him after several days of delayed vote counting.

    This time it was Adam Laxalt in Nevada.

    Laxalt led the polls and had a good election day turnout. He led the race by tens of thousands of votes.

    On Thursday Adam Laxalt told Tucker Carlson that his opponent did not have a valid path to victory. Adam Laxalt told Tucker that his opponent needed 63% of the remaining 84,000 votes in Clark County, Nevada to catch up with him in the vote count.

    MAGA firebrand Lauren Boebert defied the Democrats’ Venezuela fraud machine in Colorado to pull ahead in her race for the House of Representatives, so of course expect more shenanigans and a race that drags out for weeks.

    While left-wing media are quick to call any race once the Democrat candidate pulls ahead, Lauren Boebert currently leading by 1100 votes in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District means weeks of recounts. Of course.

    The Election Oversight Group, who has been investigating and documenting Georgia’s election problems since the 2020 General Election, in conjunction with County Citizens Defending Freedom, has provided The Gateway Pundit with more evidence that our election system should not be trusted. This time, it’s direct from Texas but has implications and evidence of occurrences in many other jurisdictions.

    In a shocking video that seems to confirm many of the things we knew but couldn’t prove, poll workers in Dallas, Tx captured the number of checked in voters on their poll pads jumping higher and higher right before polls closed. The poll pads are used to check in voters and are the electronic version of the paper “voter roll”, which also keeps a running tally of the number of voters who have been “checked-in” on that

    • Damn, the Republican did not factor in INFLATION. OR it could be that this 2+2=5 thing is been around longer than you think?

      I ask a man who wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper years ago, where did he get his numbers, knowing full well he was wrong. He told me he made them up, but nobody would say anything because they were too dumb to know.

      I remember going to bed on election night / morning at 3:15 AM of 2020, election, feeling all warm and fuzzy knowing Donald J Trump won. This time I did not watch any returns. Fool me once………

  5. Behind Closed Doors: More on Runbeck Election Services in Maricopa County and the Scanning of Ballot Envelopes

    More on Runbeck Election Services

    Maricopa County is the only jurisdiction in the country that picks up completed ballots at USPS Processing Distribution Center, but doesn’t bring them back to the election department or tabulation center.

    Maricopa County picks up mail-in ballots and takes them directly to its print vendor Runbeck Election Services, which is headquartered in Phoenix.

    Every single completed mail-in ballot, whether mailed or dropped off at a polling place, goes to Runbeck. All mail-in ballots collected on election day, and the previous few days, are sitting at Runbeck headquarters. Maricopa has no idea how many ballots are in their possession because the ballots are at their print vendor.

    Maricopa allegedly uses Runbeck because they have “high-speed scanners.” Runbeck scans the ballots in batches to create a digital image of each envelope signature area. This batch of images is given to the Maricopa tabulation center (MCTEC) for poll worker review. MCTEC notifies Runbeck if any of those signatures don’t match. Runbeck separates out those bad envelopes, then delivers both sets of these envelopes by van to MCTEC, which is 6 miles away. MCTEC then opens the envelopes and starts the tabulation process.

  7. Here’s a Close Look at Adrian Fontes and His Path of Destruction in Arizona Politics

    Adrian Fontes becomes the Arizona Secretary of State, their elections will suffer. Fontes is the reason for the current Maricopa County mess.

    Adrian Fontes was one of the worst Maricopa Recorders in the county’s history, in office from 2016 to 2020. After being sworn into office in early 2017, Fontes started making radical changes to policy, staff, etc. He openly adopted election policies from the leftist Brennan Center. This group fights on behalf of Soros to stop the cleaning of voter rolls, fights against Voter ID laws, and so on. Fontes ran the election department as a Democrat GOTV operation.

    Using federal HAVA law as his argument, Fontes targeted what he called the “underserved and underprivileged”. The Maricopa Recorder’s office began to partner with nearly 55 NGO’s. They went after voter registration from 4 specific Democrat voter groups – African Americans, Hispanics, College Age, and Native Americans. Fontes even deployed helicopters for faster access to Indian reservations, and their voter registration drives.

    Fontes gave nearly 1,000 NGO staff access to Maricopa’s internal Voter Registration system (VRAS). He called them “Deputy Registrars”. Fontes opened corrupt “Emergency Voting Centers” four days before the 2018 election. Although very few voted at these locations, GOP staff noticed massive amounts of absentee ballots coming from these location

  8. 10,000 Votes Dropped on Friday Morning Giving Maryland US House Seat to the Democrats

    An individual by the name of Logical Brad claims he caught the Democrats stealing a US House seat in Maryland. Another huge drop of ballots late in the week gave this one to the Democrats.

    Isn’t it strange that the large ballot drops always go to the Democrats?

    Logical Brad writes:

    Democrats in the Maryland District-6 Race between Parrott (R) and Throne (D) padded the vote totals on Friday by 10,000 votes while nobody was looking. Flipping the seat Blue, here is the evidence.

    The Republican was ahead on Thursday night by 1,600 votes. (Again, why are we still counting ballots into Thursday night and Friday morning – three days after the election?)

    The next day the Dem was ahead. What Logical Brad points out is what we also saw in the 2020 Election in various races. The reporting shows that less than 1% of the votes to count were added overnight which would equal around 1,500 total votes but instead 10,000 total votes were added. When this large basket of votes was dropped, they went to the Democrat.

    The race for control of the US House is not over. It’s not over till the Democrats say it’s over.

    The world is watching in amazement as corrupt election officials and politicians across the country can’t seem to finalize the results of an election five days ago. Texas and Florida can complete their election results a few hours after the election, but other states are days away, if not weeks.

    The 2022 Election was supposed to be a route for the GOP. Biden and his gang of America-destroying communists are understandably not well-liked. They are even hated for their actions in Afghanistan, with the economy, the Jan 6 communist kangaroo court, and much more. Most Americans can’t list three things that this administration has done for the good of America. Many can’t name one thing.

    China is very happy with the Biden regime, and so are Soros and Obama. The destruction of America is near complete. Free speech and free and fair elections were on the ballot.

  10. Democrats Seal Control Of Senate, AZ Governor Race Still Tight

    SUNDAY, NOV 13, 2022 – 06:35 AM
    A decisive new batch of ballots from Las Vegas’ Clark County has prompted the Associated Press and many other outlets to declare that Nevada incumbent Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto has defeated Adam Laxalt, assuring another two years of Democratic control of the U.S. Senate.

    With the win, Democrats will have at least 50 seats plus the vice presidential tiebreaker vote — just as they do today — with an opportunity to secure another seat in the Dec. 6 Georgia runoff pitting Republican Herschel Walker against incumbent Raphael Warnock. With Senate control no longer at stake, it seems likely that already-dull Republican enthusiasm for Trump-backed Walker will sag even more.

    The Arizona governor’s race remains tight, however. Unlike Friday night’s update — Saturday’s new tally brought some good news for the GOP, as Kari Lake

  11. Biden Wants Talks While China’s Xi Prepares for War
    by Gordon G. Chang • November 13, 2022 at 5:00 am

    President Joe Biden will meet with Chinese ruler Xi Jinping on November 14 in Bali, Indonesia, on the sidelines of the G20 Summit. The talks will be, as Gideon Rachman wrote, “the first global summit of the second cold war.”

    The meeting, as crucial as everyone believes it will be, should not occur. It is long past time for America to stop talking with the Chinese regime and start imposing costs for dangerous and other unacceptable behavior.

    Yes, China is crucial to the resolution of every major problem in the world — in large part because it has caused or aggravated them — yet China’s central role does not, as Americans believe, automatically require them to talk to Chinese leaders. Talking at this time, unfortunately, is making problems even harder to resolve.

    The media is declaring Democrats have won the Nevada senate race with Catherine Cortez Masto defeating Republican Adam Laxalt. This gives the Senate to the Democrats with 50 seats, Republicans with 49 and the Georgia runoff still outstanding. [Media Report]

    Something is very weird about this Nevada outcome, when you compare the Governor race on the same ballot.

    With Laxalt previously ahead, and with his previous vote percentage in alignment with Republican Governor Candidate Joe Lombardo, it appeared Laxalt was positioned for victory. However, apparently the Democrats gained post-election ballots where the Democrat on the Senate race was supported, but the Democrat in the Governor race was not.

    Democrat Cortez Masto (Sen) surged late in the ballot counting and carried 15,000 more affirming ballots than Democrat Sisolak (Gov). This seems odd and suspicious; however apparently, we are not allowed to notice these things, lest we be considered conspiracy theorists.

    It is very rare for a split ballots to surface in a high-profile race where a Republican governor would win, and the Democrat Senator would win. However, the outcome in Arizona and Georgia is of a similar construct amid the ballot trend. Split races in the Governor and Senate outcomes. All very weird.

    It wasn’t “democracy on the ballot,” it was something else entirely.

    Democracy per se’, was in the voting, not the ballot collecting.

    ==================================

    • I hate to have to say this, both major political parties need to be replaced.

      The left has spent around 100 years creating a large bloated Federal Government that is composed of left leaning bureaucrats. They have slowly seized power and rights that belong to the People and the States.

      They have done this in the name of helping the people. Their claim of wanting to help rings hallow because their actions always make the problem worse and the People more dependent on the government.

      If the new political parties are going to succeed in restoring The Republic we are going to have to amend the Constitution to make it harder for the wanna be tyrants to seize power.

      There are two ways to amend the Constitution. The first is get Congress to introduce an amendment, pass it and send it to the States for ratification.

      The second is by calling a Constitutional Convention. Known as an Article 5 Convention or a Convention of the States. This is the only way we will be able to limit the power of the Professional Politicans and Bureaucrats.

      Despite the dier warnings of the fear mongers the Left can’t take over the Convention and strip us of our rights. At Conventions each State gets one, I repeat one vote. Then after the amendment has been passed out of the Convention (it takes a yes vote of 38 states to do this) you then have to get 38 State Legislatures to vote to ratify the amendment.

      Yes the State Legislatures can send as many delegates as they want, but they get 1 vote per State.

      This is the only way I can see to limit the time that Congress Critters can spend in Congress. This limitation will have to extend to the Bureaucracy as well.

      • And who would represent “We the People” in a Constitutional Convention?
        Elizabeth Warren, Romney, and AOC. We’d end up with a Constitution that looked like the Communist Manifesto.

        Our votes don’t count. We can demonstrate fraud before and after the fact. Then, so what?

        The enemy ends up “winning” – we just whine. It’s a miserable show. I’m totally disgusted.

        • They are not leaving us a lot of choices are they?

          The phrase, “Reverse Alchemy” keeps going though my head.

          Also remember how the Egyptians deposed two crappy governments within a year I think it was. Protests work if there is enough of us, and we grind things to a halt.

          • We tested the rights we think of as “inalienable”.
            What happened?
            J6 and Truckers’. We got hammered.

            The whole world watched Arab Spring unfold thanks to the lovey MSM coverage, courtesy of MB-media. Only the military could take it down, a general who would be called “President”. Who governs with zero tolerance for dissent, maintains absolute control over the media and all institutions that matter.

            Sulla, Franco, and Pinochet took down degenerate republics. Now a cabal can just declare an emergency, suborn the media, then employ an alien militia to act as enforcer.
            ……..
            Larry Johnson posed an interesting thought experiment:
            Would The Soviet Union Be Able To Defeat The Nazis In World War II If Social Media existed?

        • It’s root hog or die time. They have left is no choice but desperate measures.

          We have already seen proof of concept attacks. The Dems are about to start more random attacks trying to break out will.

          Put another way reality is about to slap us in the face.

          Keep your musket clean and your powder dry.

          • We’re cooked. Have been for a long time, it’s just blatant now.

            On the plus side: ChiComs find blackmail less effective because dirt only sticks to chumps already in the crosshairs!

          • We aren’t cooked yet. The game is still ongoing. Granted the window for a peaceful victory is still open.

            Things are probably going to get nasty starting next summer as the Dems try scare off the voters they haven’t discouraged.

            Revolutions (peaceful and violent) take time to build and most violent ones grow out of peaceful ones.

            Remember Patton saying, “Don’t take counsel of your fears.”

    When something is so obvious, if the outcome makes no sense, if the outcome is literally impossible, then it is what it is. Forget “proof.” You know it. You saw it. You felt it. You experienced it. It happened. It’s real.

    The 2022 midterm was just stolen. Just like 2020.

    If you disagree, you’re either delusional, or terribly naïve, or brain dead. Or you’re in on the fix.

    It’s time to admit we’re all part of a massive experiment in fraud, theft, brainwashing, and gaslighting to a degree never seen in world history.

    Think of all the times in just the past few years you’ve been gaslighted. They lied to you about open borders…they lied about Hillary’s 30,000 deleted emails…they lied about spying on Trump…they lied about Russian Collusion…they lied about a perfectly fine Ukrainian phone call…they lied about massive Biden corruption in Ukraine and China… they lied about the Hunter Biden laptop they lied about the origins of Covid…they lied about the need for lockdowns and masks…they lied about the need for Covid vaccines…they lied about the vaccines being “safe and effective”…they lied and covered up all the deaths and injuries from the vaccine…they lied about the success of miracle drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin…they lied about the stolen 2020 election…

    You’ve been the victims of nonstop severe gaslighting for a decade now. You’re all part of a human psychology experiment in the limits that government and media can go in propaganda and brainwashing…while you can see they’re lying right in front of your eyes.

    And these are the exact same people now telling you Democrats just over-performed, and stopped a GOP red landslide, against all odds, without cheating and stealing the midterm election.

    Historically, every president in history facing his first midterm experiences a tough day with automatically 20 to 30 House seats lost…and 4 or more Senate seats lost…but this terribly unpopular President Biden is brain dead with severe dementia, and can’t put 3 coherent sentences together…Yet Biden defied history?

    While also facing the worst economy in modern history…and the worst inflation in America’s history…and out of control crime…and open borders…and failing schools…and polls showing 75% of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction…Yet Biden beat all of that?

    If you believe Democrats made a miracle happen, without cheating, rigging and stealing…I have a bridge to sell you, over the Atlantic Ocean, in the Vegas desert.

    First, every poll in the country showed a gigantic GOP landslide victory- ranging from red wave, to red tsunami. Polls even showed women moved 32 points from September to October in favor of the GOP.

    But in the end they all moved back to Biden and Democrats? Does that make sense to you?

    Second, every poll in the country showed the top two issues, by a mile, were inflation and the economy. And crime was in second place, along with open borders.

    And they all voted for Biden and the Democrats? Does that make sense to you?

    CNN’s own exit polls showed the GOP made massive gains among almost every voting group- men, women, white men, white women, blacks, Hispanics, young people. Everyone.

    And they all voted for Biden and the Democrats? Does that make sense to you?

    In this environment where Americans can’t afford gas…or groceries…or rent…with the economy failing…inflation raging…scared to death of losing their jobs…living in cities plagued by violent crime, mass shoplifting, homeless everywhere, streets lined with poop, pee, drug needles…and failing schools intent on teaching your children to become masked transgenders…

    In this environment, they all voted for Biden and the Democrats? Does that make sense to you?

    That they looked around at the disaster one man has created in only two years, and they defied a century of historic midterm defeats for the party in power…and voted for Democrats? Folks, you’ve been gaslighted.

    But the real proof the midterm was rigged and stolen is…FLORIDA.

    In Florida the GOP won a landslide. DeSantis and Rubio and everyone else in the Florida GOP won in a red tsunami. The same one the polls showed was happening in the entire country.

    Guess what Florida has? Florida has strict Voter ID, strict laws against voter fraud, severe prison terms for anyone caught trying to commit voter fraud, no mail-in ballots sent to every voter, no ballot drop boxes, no ballot harvesting, no ballots accepted for days after Election Day, no counting for days until the desired result is achieved by the Democrat Party.

    Isn’t it a funny and strange coincidence that in that state, with all of those strict rules against cheating, the GOP red tsunami happened as predicted? But everywhere else, where there are no strict laws against voter fraud, and they allow all that cheating, the red tsunami fizzled.

    And that under-performance is being blamed on Trump? And on conservative MAGA candidates?

    Yet in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis is the most Trump-like, MAGA, America First, anti-woke, anti-trannie, in-your-face, ultra conservative politician in all of America. And with that ultra MAGA message, plus strict voting fraud laws…the GOP swept to a landslide victory.

    And in most other places, they didn’t. Coincidence?

  17. Istanbul live news: Turkey’s Erdogan says six killed in explosion
    https://www.aljazeera.com/news/liveblog/2022/11/13/live-news-deadly-explosion-hits-istanbuls-busy-istiklal-street
    Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says at least six people have been killed and dozens injured in a “heinous attack”, after an explosion hit Istanbul’s busy Istiklal thoroughfare.
    Vice President Fuat Oktay later updated the wounded toll to 81, with two in serious condition, and also said it appeared to be a “terrorist attack”.
    ‘We did not want to think it was a bomb’
    A witness, speaking to Al Jazeera, has said that she thought the exploding sound came from a construction site when she heard it.

    The explosion occurred next to a Mango clothing store on Istiklal.

    “I was at Mango two hours beforehand. Then we went to [the adjacent neighborhood of] Cihangir and heard the sound of an explosion while eating and did not want to think that it was a bomb,” Asena Hayal told Al Jazeera.

    “We thought something fell from a construction site but then realized there is no construction on Sundays. Later the news arrived indicating that it was an explosion,” Hayal added.
    Some of the wounded in the blast were taken to the Okmeydani state hospital in the neighbouring district of Sisli, according to news reports.

    At 8pm, there were numerous police officers on guard at the entrance to the hospital’s emergency room, but they declined to provide any information, according to an Al Jazeera correspondent.

    As of 8:45pm, all entrances to Istiklal Avenue were blocked off by police as an investigation into the explosion is ongoing.

    There were large numbers of police at the main entrance to the avenue and armored vehicles parked in nearby Taksim Square. The normally buzzing backstreets around Istiklal were eerily silent and empty. Many bars, restaurants, and cafes had closed early.
    Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay has said that six people were killed in the explosion in Istanbul – four of them at the scene – and 81 others were injured, with two in critical condition.

    Oktay said the incident is considered a “terrorist act,” adding that female attacker detonated the bomb that caused the blast.
    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that he is “deeply saddened” by the news of the explosion in Turkey, and has extended condolences to the victims and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.

    “The pain of the friendly Turkish people is our pain,” Zelenkskyy added in a tweet.
    Al Jazeera’s Sinem Koseoglu, reporting from Istiklal avenue, said that three suspects were reportedly involved in the blast.

    President Recep Tayyip Erdogan “mentioned that the main suspect [in the incident] is a female,” Koseoglu said, adding that officials believe that she is a member of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

    Koseoglu said the suspect reportedly dropped a bag of explosives in the middle of the street packed with civilians, and it detonated a few minutes after she left.

    “I learned from my sources that the other two suspects are two very young men who were born after 2000,” she also said.

    • Major Terror Attack in Turkey, 6 Dead, 53 Wounded

      At least six people have been killed, and 53 others wounded Sunday afternoon in a major terrorist attack that took place in the iconic Taksim Square section of Istanbul, Turkey.

      Taksim Square is the main square of the ancient city once known as Constantinople.

      A preliminary investigation found that a woman who arrived at the scene about seven minutes before the explosion planted what was probably the IED that exploded, and left, according to a report by Israel’s Channel 12 News. Turkish media released security footage showing the woman.

      https://www.jewishpress.com/news/middle-east/turkey/major-terror-attack-in-turkey/2022/11/13/
      The blast took place on Istiklal Caddesi, a street filled with shops and restaurants, as the local Jewish community was hosting a day of Jewish culture at nearby Neve Shalom synagogue, the largest synagogue in Istanbul.

      The synagogue event — filled with attendees and which was to include a memorial ceremony marking the anniversary of a massive terror attack at the synagogue in 2003 — was immediately ended in the wake of the blast.

      Nineteen years ago, Neve Shalom and a second synagogue were both bombed during a two-day terror spree that left 55 people dead, including six Jews. Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs donated a beautiful chandelier to the rebuilt synagogue, along with a plaque to commemorate those who lost their lives in the attack.

      It is possible that Sunday’s explosion was deliberately timed to mark the anniversary of the 2003 terror attacks.

    • Lahav Harkov, Diplomatic correspondent for JPost:

      Israeli security official says the recommendation to Israelis in Istanbul is to stay at their hotels until the situation is clearer, and to listen to the Turkish authorities.

      National Security Council emphasized that the recommendation not to visit Turkey (bc of an Iranian threat to Israeli tourists) unless necessary still stands, and those who do go should tell relatives their location, not publicize their location on social media

      stay away from demonstrations, hide that they are Israeli, not enter unidentified vehicles, and stay alert.

      If the Twisted Ragheads offered a cheap vacation package, Israelis would stampede to get the deal.

  20. EXCLUSIVE: The Cause of Arizona’s Machine Tabulator Failure Identified – Ballots Larger than Printer Parameters – Willful Incompetence?

    The cause of Arizona’s massive 30% machine tabulator failure is identified. This action disproportionately affected Republicans and assured delays in counting.

    Technical expert, Dan Sundin, has homed in on the likely cause of why 30% of the tabulators in Arizona could not process the majority of Republican ballots on Election Day.

    During the 2022 General Election, the election programming was set up to process 20” long ballots. This was a change from the 2020 General and the 2022 Primary ballots, which were 19” long – an inch shorter.

    So when Arizona election officials say they don’t know what happened on November 8th because everything was the same as Arizona’s primary – this isn’t true.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who insisted last year that “deranged sexual frustrations” underpin a “Republican fixation on me,” and who said she ‘thought she was going to die’ during the January 6 Capitol riot – despite being in a building across the street from the actual Capitol that day, now says she is “absolutely” afraid for her life.

  22. Some background to the racist cult of black supersession:

    Between the world wars, over a million descendants of enslaved Black Americans migrated north, initially to take advantage of the wartime labor shortage and escape the most savage horrors of the period…

    Black migrants, reeling from these pressures and the social upheaval of relocating their families from their hot homes in the rural South to frigid, frantic, crowded cities, found the established northern Black churches sterile and unwelcoming.

    A ferment of new religious movements filled the gap. Based in storefront churches, syncretic strains of Black Judaism, Christianity, and Islam developed belief systems in which the racial genealogies of the established Black church became literal and exclusive…

    The president of a Massachusetts chapter of the NAACP turns out to be another jew-hater. Champion of the notorious Mapping Project.

    In his role as a prominent NAACP leader, Swan was invited in March to become a member of the Massachusetts Hate Crimes Task Force.

    In the last three years, violent men who were motivated by exclusive and conspiracist Black Israelism have attempted two mass murders—one left six people dead, while the other left a rabbi and four others suffering machete stab wounds after being attacked during a Hannukah celebration…

    With street violence against Jews continuing to rise—including incidents where attackers disparage the Jewish identity of their targets as fake—it’s hard to imagine Swan being an effective advocate, at least on behalf of the victims.

    When white Christians push exclusive theologies of substitution, we have no problem recognizing them as antisemitic. Spiritual self-identification is natural, but there should be no doubt about the nature of what Kanye and Kyrie are promoting. In Irving’s case, it even includes Holocaust denial.

    A religious leader and civil rights activist like Talbert Swan should be the first line of defense against the dangers of paranoid, racialized religion. He should not be propagating it.

    • Stunning article by Dan Greenfield, broad sweep couldn’t be more on point. Just one snip:

      American Jews didn’t invent “fighting antisemitism”, but they refined it to a fine and often useless art.

      Unlike the traditional fight against existential threats, “fighting antisemitism” involves attacks not against the lives, bodies and rights of Jews, but most often the social status of a strata of lay leaders.

      The IDF fights attempts to kill Jews by shooting Islamic terrorists. Men come to Sabbath prayers in the United States armed with guns in anticipation of another attack by the Muslims, white supremacists or black supremacists who have repeatedly attacked synagogues in this country.

      That is fighting antisemitism. It’s real in contrast to a booming genre of fighting antisemitic attitudes or comments of which there’s no evidence that it has ever worked or accomplished much of anything.
