GuinnessNitroIPA-JoseOrtegaCreating new possibilities for its famous yeast, Guinness, the Irish Dry Stout (that is “good for you”), is out with new varieties that should put smiles on the faces of Stout lovers around the world.

One of the great joys in life is a pint of Guinness after rigorous exercise. That will be especially true with the just released Guinness Nitro IPA, and its citrus finish.

US-TheStrainThe machinations around the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran offer a glimpse into the toxic U.S. efforts to control the World, made worse by the extent to which Israel has bought control of the U.S. Congress and the presidential candidates.

A commonly heard refrain today, directed at American Jews by Isaeli officials, is: “Give us your money and your Congress…” But to what end? The hysteria and fanaticism of the Zionist movement continues to plague the world, the U.S., and Jews themselves. Even after delivering money and Congress, American Jews are often told by Israelis that they aren’t really Jews. Writing in Forward (July 24, 2015), Gal Beckerman characterized the state of being an American Jew today as: “gut-churning, fraught, panicked and uncomfortable.” This is not because of anti-Semitism, but rather, he says: “the fear of losing Jewish identity… and the struggle to construct Jewish identity.”

History has shown the best hope for finding peace (of mind) and being fulfilled, authentic Jews, is through assimilation — not with Xanax or Zionism, but with the New Covenant.

BloghersGarner“After Eric Garner what am I supposed to tell my son?”

Maybe you can encourage him to live truthfully, which includes mastering himself.

There’s no future in narcissistic rage (black or white).

Eric Garner, a man with a criminal past and health issues, died in the commission of a crime while resisting arrest. He acted in a threatening manner towards cops who were acting on orders from Governor Cuomo to crack-down on the sale of lose cigarettes.
