Miracles Do Sometimes Happen

Ademollo,_The_Menorah_01 - Copy

Hannukah begins today at sunset:

In 175 BCE, Antiochus IV Epiphanes gained control of Judea. He outlawed the Jewish religion, and in 167 BCE went so far as to desecrate the Holy Temple by having an altar to Zeus placed there and ordering pigs to be sacrificed …  A rebellion was led by the Jewish priest Mattityahu and his five sons, one of whom, Judah Maccabee, took over the rebellion after his father died. The family was called the Maccabees or the  Hasmoneans. In 165 BCE, the Jews managed to defeat their oppressors and to rededicate their sacred temple.

According to the Talmud, after the temple was cleaned, olive oil was needed to fuel the light of the menorah (candelabrum). Though there was only enough oil to burn for one day, the oil lasted eight days. On Hanukkah, Jews celebrate their religious freedom and what is considered to be a great miracle that occurred.

Great miracles do sometimes happen. Hannukah is also called the Festival of Lights.

Let there be light!

Greetings and best wishes to all of our Jewish friends.

Chag Urim Sameach!

  1. Beautiful.

    Blessed and Happy Hanukkah. Jesus never knew he was a Christian nor did he know his surname was Greek, Christ. He was born into the ‘House of David’.

  2. The gem of the piece: BARACK ~ H ~ OBAMA ? (a real joker?) ^^^^

    “There’s no Black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant & is waiting for their car & somebody didn’t hand them their car keys,” said the USURPER, adding that, yes, it had happened to ME!

  3. ~And as Ed Lasky comments, “they are just going to keep venting their spleens at a country that is downright mean…
    this race-stoking ….. is just going to get worse.” ha

      Check out this claim:

      Sez Mooch: “I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. …”

      GASP! OMG. How RACIST of that woman to see Mooch as “someone who could help her.” She ought to have known that Mooch only helps HERSELF and nobody else. OMG. Seriously. Just this week some woman asked me to help her get something off a shelf. Ya think it’s because both Mooch and I are TALL and not because we look like servants or salespersons? Most people would be HAPPY to be of service and flattered that someone asked for help. What an ass this woman (?) is. (Actually, I just finished reading the entire GP story. He has an update that basically affirms what I said. The FIRST time Mooch told the story, she admitted it was because the woman was short and couldn’t reach something and, at the time, Mooch was happy to help her. NOW, though, in light of Ferguson and political points to be made, she morphs the story into a tale of being a victim of racism. Oh, wait! It was a MICROAGGRESSION!!!!)

      • Emily, paisan, get serious.
        Obama and Michelle got into the best schools, Columbia and Harvard, because of their skin color. Obama got elected because of his skin color. As a result of their skin color, they are millionaires, and will surpass even the Bubbas ( over 100 million) when they leave the WH. They have vacationed in the best most expensive places in the universe, on the taxpayers’ dime, and are treated like royalty wherever they go..
        They live the life because of their skin color.
        Congress is afraid to impeach him because of his skin color. They impeached Bubba for lying about sex. Obama has violated the constitutional separation of powers by granting amnesty, used IRS to harass conservatives, lied about Benghazi, and is the most deserving candidate for impeachment.
        What instances of discrimination have they suffered?

        ….What’s fascinating about this anecdote (assuming that it’s even true) is how it reveals how utterly un-self-aware the diva Marie Antoinette Obama is, not to mention, her abject narcissism and arrogance. She believes herself to be such royalty that the ultimate insult is for a member of the proletariat to not recognize her and to ask her for assistance in reaching an item on a shelf, as opposed to assuming the standard fawning, obsequious posture of obeisance that she is no doubt accustomed to. The nerve that a common plebeian would have, to not recognize her Majesty and bow down in reverence!

        • Rosemary Woodhouse

          Spot on, Zen.

          Also……where were the Secret Service when this Lilliputian dared approach Her Highness (pun intended) for assistance? It would be impossible for a prole to approach her. Yet another lie.

          • I thought of that last night, as I lay awake with insomnia. This entire story MUST BE bogus because, otherwise, where’s the video? The woman goes NOWHERE without tons of protection. She, probably more than Barry, is paranoid because she is so self-absorbed that she thinks people will target her and her family (at Target!). Remember how she allegedly feared for Barry to run for POTUS in the first place, for fear he’d be targeted? As you said, no prole would be allowed near her. Remember how they shut down Mount Rushmore so she and the girls wouldn’t have to mix with the riff raff? They shut down HIGHWAYS when she goes for a jog? IF this woman actually did “stoop” to reach up on a top shelf to HELP someone (was it a white woman? especially if it was a white woman) then the photos would be front page news. They’re not because there are none because it never happened. It’s just more of their mythology. iow, more LIES.

              • Michelle Obama told it accurately the FIRST time, but she IS Twisting
                it NOW to make MY Sister out to be a RAC-ist. Now, her name isn’t out there. But I just got FUR-ious on my Sister’s behalf. I can – we have political differences, big time, but MY Sister is NOT a RAC-ist. ~ O’ my

                GLENN: Okay. You’re a fan of Pat and Stu, so I’m assuming
                that you’re a conservative.

                CALLER: (the sister DONNA said) …. Yes. Yes. ^^^^^

                • I’m not sure I believe that story, either. Anybody can call in and say anything. Just look at the several totally bogus “witnesses” to the Michael Brown shooting. People want to be celebrities and be involved in big stories. If she voted for Barry, then how could she NOT recognize the totally recognizable First Wookie, especially since there’s NO WAY an entire entourage of Secret Service people weren’t right there in the aisle? They would NOT have allowed her to walk around the store if it were full of regular people. They screen everybody all the time, even people living in their own neighborhoods in Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii. Speaking of which–they’re off to their usual “Christmas” vacation in Hawaii.

      • What a despicable liar she is. Apparently it’s beneath her to be spoken to by anyone that isn’t given explicit permission. No one took her for being a black Target employee in that getup, first of all.

        Your deeply-rooted racism is showing again, Czarina.

        • And further, re, tossing the keys to a black guy outside a restaurant because he’s automatically taken for a valet is a bald-face lie.
          Yeah, right, people don”t care if they ever see their cars again.

          LIARS. Their racism is so ‘deeply-rooted’ they cannot even see how ridiculous their deceitful statements are.

          Yeah, here’s the keys to my car. Have at it!

          • I wonder what’s worse? Being a tuxedo-clad “black professional” standing outside a tony restaurant and being mistaken for a valet OR having to drive up and have your rattletrap, 20-year-old “economy car” valet parked by a smirking young man who resents having to soil his drawers by sitting in your “white trash” vehicle because you’re a “white professional” who paid her own way through college, still TRULY has loans to repay, and can’t afford anything else that passes for a vehicle but has no choice but to attend said event “on the job?”

          • so, uh, when’s the last time any of you came out of a restaurant where there was valet parking? Just saying………

            • It’s been a loooong time, alfy. Mid-70s? It’s probably common, though, in the circles that our Child of Privilege ran in.

          • It’s been so long that I forget: Don’t they keep your keys? Do we imagine that the likes of Barry stands there waiting for the valet to come back after parking the car to give the owner the keys? Don’t they keep the keys in case they need to move the car again? Seems they give you a ticket. Well, I don’t run in the posh circles they do, especially in big cities like Chi-town and NYC, so who knows what goes on on Park Avenue, where SAD lived?

        • for your reading pleasure. Used to read a lot of this stuff. Wish a few other arrogant race-haters would. Some Facts ……. http://www.ironbarkresources.com/slaves/whiteslaves05.htm
          By the way this only is the beginning of the story. There were as many if not more indentured “other than black ” races in the 17th century. Many families sent there children (from France , Scotland, Germany ,ect.)as indentured servants till they came of age, in order to give them a life and hopes for a future in the new colonies.

          • I meant RAce Baiters , but spell check at it again.

          • http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-irish-slave-trade-the-forgotten-white-slaves/31076

            That’s a good one, too.

            “The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

            Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

            From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

            During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.”

            My guess is that it’s possible that families like Eric Holder’s may have owned some of these white slaves.

  4. Dana Loesch read this yesterday on her show. This is SO FUNNY and I totally applaud and admire the professor. Look closely at the bottom to see his response:

  5. A MIRACLE? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/12/breaking-federal-judge-rules-obamas-executive-amnesty-is-unconstitutional/

    “Earlier Tuesday, a federal court in Pennsylvania declared aspects of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration policy unconstitutional.

    According to the opinion by Judge Arthur Schwab, the president’s policy goes “beyond prosecutorial discretion” in that it provides a relatively rigid framework for considering applications for deferred action, thus obviating any meaningful case-by-case determination as prosecutorial discretion requires, and provides substantive rights to applicable individuals. As a consequence, Schwab concluded, the action exceeds the scope of executive authority. …”

    • Ain’t it the truth? He fomented and instigated this movement.

      Their deep-rooted racism is and has always been apparent.

    • Oh, how true. You know, I thought the exact same thing when I read what Barry said. Racism is endemic and it exists AMONG ALL GROUPS in our society and that includes BLACK RACISM, HISPANIC “RACISM” (La Raza?), as well as “white” racism. His administration IS a prime example of racism.

    without any recourse to Congress:

    State Dept: U.S. Nukes Down 85%, From 31,255 to 4,804
    ‘We Still Have More Work To Do’
    9:01 AM, Dec 19, 2014 • By JERYL BIER
    Single Page Print Larger Text Smaller Text Alerts

    The State Department’s Rose Gottemoeller, under secretary for arms control and international security, spoke at the Brookings Institution Thursday where she reaffirmed the United States’ “unassailable” commitment to putting the nuclear weapons genie back in the bottle. Gottemoeller told the attendees at the Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Initiative-sponsored event that “the U.S. commitment to achieving the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons is unassailable.”

    She went on to note that the nation’s stockpile of active weapons is down 85 percent from maximum cold war levels, falling to 4,804 in 2013 from a high of 31,255. But, she said, “We still have more work to do.”

    ———————————————————————————————–
    more work indeed,

    Even now, China and Russia, acting together might be able to destroy us,
    Russia did not destroy any tactical (battlefield) nuclear weapons and they
    now have a superior advantage over the USA,

    With a little more work, China and the Russia can kill off the USA and
    only suffer 50% population loss (for China). They state that this is a loss
    that would be worth it.

    Fake poker chips, hands up blah blah, no illegals deported, fat kids,
    none of this matters a dam!

    We will be lucky to survive until Obama is ousted, unless Congress
    finds it’s cojones.

  9. Now Barry says he’s Jewish in his “soul” (that’s provided he has one):

    http://www.jewishjournal.com/david_suissa/article/obama_im_jewish_in_my_soul

    And if that’s not enough, this site claims that he released the leader of the group that committed the atrocity in Pakistan only about a week before the murders of all those children:

    http://viral.buzz/breaking-obama-may-be-linked-to-massacre-in-pakistan/

  10. Clearly, if black lives truly matter, fixating on how less than 0.2% of blacks
    die is not the best way to help blacks.

    Because the unborn, according to science, are human, the leading cause
    of death of black Americans is abortion. More blacks are aborted each year than die from the other 7 leading causes of death combined. That’s why Jesse Jackson …… said that abortion is genocide …… against blacks.

  11. Do BLACK Lives Really MATTER… to LIBERALS ?
    OR ^^^^ IS IT “ONLY the BLACKS” that can cause “PROBLEMS”
    THAT are a WAY….2 “HELP the CAUSE” ? I Ponder that today….
    very interesting observation….really it IS!

More “brown” folks to outnumber those evil whites. There’s still going to be the next wave of UACs from Central America, too. He’s daring Congress or anybody else to TRY to take their amnesty away from them. They’ll be in the streets, a la Ferguson.
