breaking mets news: “Max is starting friday”

By N.S.

That was mets skipper Buck Showalter a few minutes ago, during his postgame press conference, following the mets’ anti-climactic final game victory, 9-2, sweeping the nats in their three-game series. A sportswriter asked Showalter for the game 1 starter in the playoffs, against san diego. Buck thought it was unimportant, but the writer said it would help with “coverage.”

All the mets had to do was win one game against the braves in their penultimate series, but they choked, with Jake deGrom, Max Scherzer, and Kevin Bassitt all losing to atlanta.

the loving couple before their 2009 nuptials


(page six) “Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen seem to be heading for the end zone: Both have retained divorce lawyers, multiple sources tell page six exclusively.

“as previously revealed, the couple have been living separately for the past couple months following an epic fight — and they’re now apparently looking at dividing up their multimillion-dollar empire.

“‘I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is,’ one source in the know tells page six.

“‘I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.’

“reps for Brady and Bündchen did not respond to requests for comment.”

Whether that’s the problem, is hard to say, but Brady is still in good enough shape to get a gorgeous 20-something girlfriend, while (imho) Bündchen’s nose appears to be growing to Jimmy Durante-like proportions in just 13 years’ time—and may not be in demand by men in her age demographic.

CUNY’s Hostos Community College, and the “Hispanic Nation”

“Letter from Nueva York: The Elite of El Bronx”
by Robert Berman (Nicholas Stix)
Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture
September, 1997

The Hispanic elite have decided that the best way to control the lives of millions of Latin immigrants and illegal aliens flooding into America’s cities is to prevent them from learning English. The elites can then preside over a separate, parallel “Hispanic Nation,” full of angry, illiterate victims of “white racism.”

Recent developments at the City University of New York (CUNY) reveal the nature of “bilingualism” as the best method yet devised to prevent students from learning English. While eight of CUNY's 17 two- and four-year colleges have English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, Hostos, Bronx, and Kingsborough community colleges have “bilingual” programs. However, Hostos is unique in having been founded in 1970 as a “bilingual” (read; English-free) college.

A Bronx-based bastion of Puerto Rican separatism, Hostos Community College became a cause célèbre this May, when students boycotted the English Writing Assessment Test (WAT), a graduation requirement at all CUNY colleges. It seems that the passing rate for the WAT had dropped from 20 percent in 1995 to 12.8 last year. The boycotters complained that the test was too hard, and had too much influence on their final grade. After all, their professors were giving their class work passing grades. Why were strange professors grading the exams? One student explained to a reporter that she “knew” English, just not how to speak or write it.

Backing her students. President Issaura Santiago-Santiago decreed that Hostos would go its own wav, and no longer require the WAT. But CUNY Chancellor W. Ann Reynolds, besieged by a disgusted public, mocked by editorial writers at the Daily News (“Tutor U.”) and New York Post, and pressured by Mayor Giuliani and Governor Pataki to raise achievement levels, instructed Santiago otherwise.

Actually, Hostos had already instituted its own, dumbed-down version of WAT. But because only 15 percent of her students could even pass this exam, Santiago changed the house rules to make the new test account for only 30 percent of a student's final grade, thus enabling a student to graduate despite flunking the exam. An Hostos instructor told me that the school had already illegally graduated students who had never passed their English classes.

In the men’s rooms, signs request “Este es su bano, Favor, Mantener limpio.” Hostos’ halls, elevators, and many of its classrooms ring exclusively with the sound of Spanish. Full-time positions are divided among well-to-do Hispanics, white feminists, and blacks, few of whom attended CUNY. Posters celebrating “Racial Justice Day” depict two white cops beating a prostrate, faceless “minority” with nightsticks, while trumpeting “Sin justicia, no hay paz! (No justice, no peace!). School documents abound in improper English: “All things considered, what is you overall rating for this courses?”

In The Bronx, Hostos is called “la fabrica” (the factory), though “el prision” might be more apt. Its predominantly female immigrant and Puerto Rican migrant students take language and social science courses in Spanish. (Separatist professors insist to bewildered students that studying Spanish will help their English grammar.) Many instructors in Hostos’ ESL classes assign no homework at all, or do not correct what they do assign. Professors and administrators champion belligerents who consider the requirement to speak English in English class a sign of “disrespect.” Serious students complain of their classmates, “They just here for the money.” Hostos’ two-year graduation rate is .4 percent. That’s right: only four out of 1,000 Hostos students graduate after two years with an Associate’s degree.

To CUNY’s multicultural professoriate, liberal Republican Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and upstate conservative Governor George Pataki are indistinguishable. Backed by the Village Voice, activists blamed New York police for “instigating” the March 1995 City Hall riot over the CUNY budget. At the scene, however, I observed disciplined officers arresting bottle-throwing students egged on in part by the “role model” professors who had canceled classes to “show solidarity” with them.

Two-thirds of Hostos’ 4,700 students are reportedly on welfare. When Mayor Giuliani insisted that students on the dole work 26, then only 20 hours a week for the city, CUNY officials were outraged that recipients should have to work at all, and demanded that all “workfare” jobs be at students’ schools. Giuliani suspects that students would be allowed to study while at “show-no” campus jobs.

New York’s City Council supports allowing campuses to determine workfare assignments, effectively eliminating the work requirement. Also winning him no friends at CUNY, Governor Pataki’s plan to reduce the “double-dipping” of Federal Pell and New York State Tuition Assistance Plan grants would have cost 66,000 of CUNY's projected 215,000 (1996-97) students up to $ 1,000 per year, saving the state over $44 million. But a State Assembly suffering election-year jitters overrode the governor last year.

Community college students at Hostos, Bronx, and Kingsborough already get full credit for classes taken in Spanish, most of which look the same as English-language courses on their transcripts. The CUNY ESL Council puts ESL classes on a par with foreign language classes, proposing that students receive academic credit for such classes. The spring 1994 “Report of the CUNY ESL Task Eorce” emphasized that immigrants did better academically than their American-born CUNY classmates, as if this were good news. The American-born students in question often function on a grade-school level. ESL officials note in private that a rising percentage of Latin students are illiterate in Spanish. Spanish-language courses are given by Hispanic instructors whose loyalty to Hispanic students often compromises their grading. In fact, many of Hostos’ ESL instructors illegally coach their students with the exam questions in advance, thus invalidating the results. Many students even write their essays in advance, or hire them out, and copy them from crib sheets. And yet, as a veteran ESL professor who coaches her students reports, 50 percent of her students still manage to fail her class.

To gauge the impact of “bilingualism,” consider the following, complete essay written in a “college-level” class at Bronx Community College by a Dominican-born, New York high school graduate:

I am going to college, to learn a profession for my future. My major is computer Science. In this moments is difficult, to someone get a good job. It is Important, you go to school to learn, because you finish major. After that do you get a good job, in Important company. They pay a lot money, do you could a position in the society and every do you Want, for that I am going to college.
Sue Dicker, Hostos’ director of ESL placement, argues that immersion wrongly gives pride of place to the “majority” language, to the detriment of “minority” (read: foreign) languages. Incredibly, Dicker claims that immersion programs seek to eliminate students’ first language. Imagine the response in the Dominican Republic, if English-language advocates demanded an end to the dominance of Spanish! Considering that polyglot countries (e.g., India) have survived only by forcing all groups to learn a common language, the multicultural defense of minority sovereignty is a case of backdoor colonialism.

In the fall of 1995, Spanish-born Hostos professor Rose Aruffat distributed in the English Department a portion of an essay that attacked conservatives who rejected “any suggestion to expand and reorient bilingual education programs to promote bilingual students’ literacy skills in their primary language” and who opposed the “expansion of bilingual education [that] would transfer status and power (as well as jobs) to minority groups who have the linguistic and cultural abilities to work in such programs.”

Note the second-class role the writer envisions for English. For separatists, “bilinguals” is a code word for “Hispanics.” Thus, a candidate illiterate in English and Spanish, but who has a Hispanic surname, would have a better chance of landing a “bilingual” job than a non-Hispanic white fluent in both languages.

Despite millions of successful cases, CUNY’s ESL Council insists “there is no evidence” that immersion works. The Council’s crusade against CUNY’s vastly cheaper and more effective language Immersion Institutes, which opened in October 1995, anticipates the loss of untold millions of dollars in patronage jobs and student aid checks, and the loss of “hate control.”

Why should American taxpayers support students lacking any intellectual promise, much less immigrants (or illegal aliens) learning a foreign language? How could students have received American high school diplomas, whether in Puerto Rico or New York, without knowing English? Why are colleges being used to teach ESL?

No other country recognizes a right to university matriculation (or to financial aid, for that matter) for illiterate immigrants. When we spoke last July, CUNY spokeswoman Rita Rodin was extremely defensive: “You can’t compare [CUNY] with other systems. There are many different factors. You have to allow for the different starting points.” Such caveats could invalidate all grading and testing, and justify unlimited financial aid.

Hostos was the scene of a near riot on February 26, as student and staff goons loyal to President Santiago menaced faculty supporters of Dean of Faculty Carlos Acevedo, whom Santiago had suddenly fired. Acevedo’s supporters claimed that Santiago had scapegoated him for the failures of Hostos’ bilingual pedagogy, which both sides supported. Another bilingualism supporter, Bronx County Democratic chairman Roberto “Bobby” Ramirez, anticipates “the day, when a New York city mayor speaks Spanish.”

Resenting Ramirez’ Bronx machine, a naturalized Dominican student flying through paralegal studies at Bronx Community College intends to sign up as Republicans as many of his conservative Catholic and Pentecostal fellow countrymen as possible.

There was a time when a large chunk of CUNY’s professors were City College alumni. Now, but a few relics remain. A Puerto Rican City College graduate recalls with a wan smile the aristocratic Puerto Rican professor she admired during the 1950’s. “She said that after the revolution, she would be the minister of education. . . . Thirty years ago, I supported the civil rights movement. Now, I regret it.”

is adl don Jonathan Greenblatt a nazi? how did the world's most famous Jewish organization become a den of institutionalized, genocidal anti-Semitism?

By A Colleague

jlp newsletter, october 2022 issue

Colleagues and Friends,

here is a rich trove of information on the failings of the anti-defamation league under Jonathan Greenblatt. There is a tremendous amount of information here so put aside some time to digest it all.

while this is of special interest to Jews who would like to see Greenblatt replaced and adl reformed, it should be of much wider interest to all  parents and teachers of children being exposed to adl's politicized no place for hate program in 1800 school systems across the us.

reform of the adl by the Jewish community may or may not succeed. Removal of it and its "no place for hate" programs from public school systems should proceed now across the country. it need not wait  for adl reform. adl is a wealthy and powerful organization, self confident, full of hubris, and unlikely to change much in the absence of a completely new leadership cadre.

some secular, politically centrist organization with a good website needs to create a  new section specifically dedicated to compiling information, on a school system-by-school system basis, of efforts by parent groups and others to dissociate their schools from adl. keep a sharp focus for that section on adl. There are many related issues, but it is hard enough to win one battle at a time.

N.S.: I don't happen to think that adl don Jonathan Greenblatt has been a "failure." The adl board knew what they were getting when they hired him, and he has thus been a roaring success. the problem is that he and the board are not incompetent but evil. Instead of protecting Jews, they seek to bring about Holocaust II.

October 2022 Issue
dear jlp Subscribers!
In september the adl appeared in the news frequently. This was primarily due to a special fox news investigation showing that adl's education materials included far-left ideas and concepts from critical race theory (crt) that give a permission slip to antisemitism. In response to this expose, prominent voices within the Jewish community, including jlp, zoa, Jonathan Tobin of jns, and Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz project, called for the resignation or removal of adl's ceo Jonathan Greenblatt.

the revelation that the school curricula being distributed by the anti-defamation league as part of their anti-hate programs are filled with critical race theory teachings is shocking, says jns editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin.

but when seen in the context of everything that has happened during the Jewish defense agency's transformation in the last several years under ceo Jonathan Greenblatt, it's hardly surprising, he notes.

A fox news digital investigation found that the adl — which was originally founded more than 100 years ago to combat the anti-Semitic defamation of American Jews — included concepts from critical race theory (crt) as well as far-left ideas within its education wing.

In a statement to fox news digital, an ADL spokesperson stated that they don't teach critical race theory but admitted how some of their curriculum materials are "misaligned" with their values…

JLP COMMENT

Only after his own children head for college does Jonathan Greenblatt, the ceo of adl, notices [sic] antisemitism on campuses and that it is coming from the "left wing."

Curiously, Mr. Greenblatt chose to publish his revelation in a Jewish magazine The Algemeiner only, eschewing more prominent mainstream publications such as the new york times or the washington post that are usually happy to publish his op-eds regarding right-wing antisemitism.
Under its current leader, adl discarded nonpartisanship. but the inclusion of critical race theory in the curricula it gives schools is not an isolated blunder.…

the adl's critical race theory curricula is no accident
Jonathan Tobin, newsweek, september 9, 2022
the last thing that you'd expect from a group whose historic mission is to monitor and fight anti-Semitism would be to discover that the group is helping to spread woke ideological indoctrination that grants a permission slip for Jew-hatred…

Is it okay for a rabbi to be anti-Israel?

According to Tobin, too much of American Jewish discourse has been hijacked by those who fail to understand that the debate isn't about Israel's borders, settlements or political leaders. It is about the anti-Zionist narrative that leading publications are mainstreaming. This narrative calls into question whether one Jewish state on the planet is one too many. It also promotes the false charge that Zionism is racism…
More
JLP COMMENT
The approach advocated by Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt should be contrasted with the approach of progressive Jewish leader rabbi Jill Jacobs of Truah.
In the article "Progressive Jewish group launches think tank to counter spread of right-wing ideas" rabbi Jill Jacobs of Truah says, "The think tank will fund research, host events with scholars, and publish essays that draw on Jewish traditions and teachings to influence public discourse and policy around issues such as racism, immigration and LGBTQ rights in the United States. Emor will also provide a forum for scholars and thinkers who are critical of Israel."
During these times of dramatic increase in antisemitism and anti-Zionism, the only relevant item on Truah's agenda seems to be to "provide a forum for scholars and thinkers who are critical of Israel." This is an example of misguided priorities of a failed Jewish leader.
