Absolute truth and spot on!!!
It's a political ad, but put that aside and listen to the substance of the ad.

This hard-hitting new TRUMP ad will surely get the MEDIA aroused.

FaceBook pulled this and will not allow a forward. But they can't pull it from e-mail.

The Three Musketeers at the Kotel


Many Shuls this Simchas Torah are having everyone dance by their seats and only one rich guy who buys the hakafot dance in the middle with no food being served. It's basically the Siyum hashas all over without the cold weather…

This Simchas Torah the rabbis have banned mixed dancing for fear that it might lead to regular dancing.

"What don't you understand," he said, "with the Esrog I walk together on the street…

" What do ghosts dance to? Soul music

What do cars do at the disco? Brake dance

What kind of dance do mothers like best? The Mom-bo

Why didn't the skeleton dance at the disco? He had no body to dance with!

How do you make a tissue dance? Put a little boogie in it… UCHHH!

Did I really put that in…

Where did the hamburger go to dance? At the Meat ball

How do they dance in Saudi Arabia? Sheik-to-sheik

How do hens dance? Chick to chick

What do you call a dancing lamb? A baa-lerina!

How many dance teachers does it take to change a light bulb? Five!...Six!...Seven!...Eight!

A mushroom walked into a dance club and asked this girl to dance. She replied, "Are you kidding? You are a mushroom!" And the mushroom replied, "Oh come on. I am a FUN GUY!"

In order to fulfill the Ministry of Health guidelines, this Simchat Torah one should insult the person next to them while dancing. That way you are practicing social-Diss- dancing.

Why are dogs so bad at dancing? Because they have two left feet

Moshe and his wife Rivkah go to see a show on Broadway. They are both looking forward to it because Davidka, the lead male dancer in the show, is Jewish and has been receiving rave reviews. Soon after the show starts, Davidka walks onto the stage and starts doing the most beautiful, energetic, and exciting dancing they've seen for a long time. His dances include some Gadi Biton and Rafi Ziv Israeli dances; some moonwalking; some break dancing; some acrobatic dancing; and even some modern dance. Suddenly, Rivkah turns to Moshe and pointing to Davidka on the stage says, "I didn't tell you this before, but I know this man from my 'previous life.' In fact, he proposed to me nearly 20 years ago - before I met you of course. But I quickly rejected him as he just wasn't my type."With a big grin on his face, Moshe says, "Well it certainly looks like he's still celebrating!"


Dershowitz says false sex charges have silenced his voice on behalf of Israel

October 8, 2020

Dershowitz tells Israel Hayom that as a result of the accusations, he's no longer invited to appear on U.S. campuses to counter anti-Israel elements.

By David Isaac, World Israel News

Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says that as a result of the sex assault charges leveled against him his voice as a pro-Israel advocate has been silenced. He made his comments to Hebrew daily Israel Hayom, the full interview of which will be published on Friday.

The paper describes Dershowitz as "one of the most influential activists and speakers for the State of Israel over the last five decades."

Dershowitz has spoken and written extensively in defense of the Jewish State. He has written several books on Israel, including: The Case for Peace: How The Arab–Israeli Conflict Can Be Resolved (2005), Defending Israel : The Story of My Relationship with My Most Challenging Client (2019) and The Case for Israel – Democracy's Outpost (2003).

In 2010, it was reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered Dershowitz the position of Israeli ambassador to the UN, which Dershowitz turned down.

However, Dershowitz tells Israel Hayom that as a result of the accusations, he's no longer invited to appear on U.S. campuses to counter anti-Israel elements. He's not even invited to speak before major Jewish institutions. He says "lies have silenced my voice for the defense of Israel. That is one of the main reasons I am fighting back with all my might."

Dershowitz, who knew convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein socially in 1996, represented him in ihis first criminal investigation for sex trafficking in October 2005. Epstein pled guilty to two prostitution charges.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of the women caught up in Epstein's sex ring as a teenager, claimed that she was given to Dershowitz for sex at that time, between 2000 and 2002.

Dershowitz categorically denies the accusations.

"Her own lawyers have admitted — David Boies on tape — that it would be impossible for me to have met with her and that she is wrong — simply wrong," Dershowitz told the Law&Crime Network in July.

In August, Dershowitz wrote in his defense, "I have been falsely accused by a woman I never met of having sex with her. I have already achieved justice in terms of the evidence that conclusively proves to any open-minded person that it is impossible that I would or could have done what she falsely accused me of.

"Indeed, the best evidence of my innocence is in her own words: a series of emails and manuscript that she tried to suppress in which she essentially admits that she never met me. Her lawyer's own words — she is 'wrong… simply wrong' in accusing you — constitute an admission attributable to her."

WHO (Accidentally) Confirms Covid is No More Dangerous Than Flu

As much as the WHO was attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr. Ryan even said it means "the vast majority of the world remains at risk." – it's actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

Head of Health Emergencies Program "best estimates" put IFR at 0.14%

Kit Knightly

The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu.

The WHO's top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO's 34-member executive board on Monday, October 5th, it's just nobody seemed to really understand it.

In fact, they didn't seem to completely understand it themselves.

At the session, Dr. Michael Ryan, the WHO's Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their "best estimate", and a huge increase over the number of officially recognized cases (around 35 million).

Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world.

As much as the WHO was attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr. Ryan even said it means "the vast majority of the world remains at risk." – it's actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539.

That's an infection fatality rate of roughly or 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world.

0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO's "provisional figure" of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies.

In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.

None of the mainstream press picked up on this. Though many outlets reported Dr. Ryan's words, they all attempted to make it a scary headline and spread more panic.

Apparently neither they, nor the WHO, were capable of doing the simple maths that shows us this is good news. And that the Covid skeptics have been right all along.

Similarities and Differences between Flu and COVID-19​

Español | Other LanguagesOn This Page

What is the difference between Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19?

Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses.

There are some key differences between flu and COVID-19. COVID-19 seems to spread more easily than flu and causes more serious illnesses in some people. It can also take longer before people show symptoms and people can be contagious for longer. Another important difference is there is a vaccine to protect against flu. There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus. More information about differences between flu and COVID-19 is available in the different sections below.

Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis. Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two.

While more is learned every day, there is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it. This page compares COVID-19 and flu, given the best available information to date.

Signs and Symptoms


Both COVID-19 and flu can have varying degrees of signs and symptoms, ranging from no symptoms (asymptomatic) to severe symptoms. Common symptoms that COVID-19 and flu share include:

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle pain or body aches
  • Headache
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults



Flu viruses can cause mild to severe illness, including common signs and symptoms listed above.

Flu Symptoms


COVID-19 seems to cause more serious illnesses in some people. Other signs and symptoms of COVID-19, different from flu, may include change in or loss of taste or smell.

COVID-19 Symptoms

How long symptoms appear after exposure and infection


For both COVID-19 and flu, 1 or more days can pass between a person becoming infected and when he or she starts to experience illness symptoms.


If a person has COVID-19, it could take them longer to develop symptoms than if they had flu.

Typically, a person develops symptoms anywhere from 1 to 4 days after infection.

Flu Symptoms


Typically, a person develops symptoms 5 days after being infected, but symptoms can appear as early as 2 days after infection or as late as 14 days after infection, and the time range can vary.

COVID-19 Symptoms

Top of Page

How long someone can spread the virus


For both COVID-19 and flu, it's possible to spread the virus for at least 1 day before experiencing any symptoms.


If a person has COVID-19, they may be contagious for a longer period of time than if they had flu.


Most people with flu are contagious for about 1 day before they show symptoms.

Older children and adults with flu appear to be most contagious during the initial 3-4 days of their illness but many remain contagious for about 7 days.

Infants and people with weakened immune systems can be contagious for even longer.

How Flu Spreads


How long someone can spread the virus that causes COVID-19 is still under investigation.

It's possible for people to spread the virus for about 2 days before experiencing signs or symptoms and remain contagious for at least 10 days after signs or symptoms first appeared. If someone is asymptomatic or their symptoms go away, it's possible to remain contagious for at least 10 days after testing positive for COVID-19.

How COVID-19 Spreads

How it Spreads


Both COVID-19 and flu can spread from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Both are spread mainly by droplets made when people with the illness (COVID-19 or flu) cough, sneeze, or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

It may be possible that a person can get infected by physical human contact (e.g. shaking hands) or by touching a surface or object that has virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

Both flu virus and the virus that causes COVID-19 may be spread to others by people before they begin showing symptoms, with very mild symptoms or who never developed symptoms (asymptomatic).


While COVID-19 and flu viruses are thought to spread in similar ways, COVID-19 is more contagious among certain populations and age groups than flu. Also, COVID-19 has been observed to have more superspreading events than flu. This means the virus that causes COVID-19 can quickly and easily spread to a lot of people and result in continuous spreading among people as time progresses.

People at High-Risk for Severe Illness


Both COVID-19 and flu illness can result in severe illness and complications. Those at highest risk include:

  • Older adults
  • People with certain underlying medical conditions
  • Pregnant people


The risk of complications for healthy children is higher for flu compared to COVID-19. However, infants and children with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for both flu and COVID-19.


Young children are at higher risk of severe illness from flu.

People at High Risk for Flu Complications


School-aged children infected with COVID-19 are at higher risk of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), a rare but severe complication of COVID-19.

People at Increased Risk of COVID-19 Severe Illness

Top of Page



Both COVID-19 and flu can result in complications, including:

  • Pneumonia
  • Respiratory failure
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome (i.e. fluid in lungs)
  • Sepsis
  • Cardiac injury (e.g. heart attacks and stroke)
  • Multiple-organ failure (respiratory failure, kidney failure, shock)
  • Worsening of chronic medical conditions (involving the lungs, heart, nervous system or diabetes)
  • Inflammation of the heart, brain or muscle tissues
  • Secondary bacterial infections (i.e. infections that occur in people who have already been infected with flu or COVID-19)



Most people who get flu will recover in a few days to less than two weeks, but some people will develop complications, some of these complications are listed above.

Flu complications


Additional complications associated with COVID-19 can include:

Approved Treatments


People at high-risk of complications or who have been hospitalized for COVID-19 or flu should receive supportive medical care to help relieve symptoms and complications.



Prescription influenza antiviral drugs are FDA-approved to treat flu.

People who are hospitalized with flu or at high-risk of flu complications with flu symptoms are recommended to be treated with antiviral drugs as soon as possible.

Flu Treatment


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has developed guidance on treatment of COVID-19external icon, which will be regularly updated as new evidence on treatment options emerges.

While remdesivir is an antiviral agent that is being explored as a treatment for COVID-19 and is available under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), there are currently no drugs or other therapeutics approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent or treat COVID-19. Studies are in progress to learn more.

What to Do If You Are Sick with COVID-19

icon of pill bottles

Top of Page



Vaccines for COVID-19 and flu must be approved or authorized for emergency use (EUA) by the FDA.



There are multiple FDA-licensed influenza vaccines produced annually to protect against the 3 or 4 flu viruses that scientists anticipate will circulate each year.

Flu Vaccines


Currently there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. Vaccine developers and other researchers and manufacturers are expediting the development of a vaccine to prevent COVID-19.

Anti-Semitic Democrats Blame Orthodox Jews for the Coronavirus

Cuomo and De Blasio blame the Jews to distract from their failures and crimes.

Fri Oct 9, 2020 Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

"I have to say to the Orthodox community tomorrow, 'If you're not willing to live with these rules, then I'm going to close the synagogues.'" Governor Andrew Cuomo told religious Jews.

His basis for the decree was a photo of mourners who weren't practicing social distancing at a funeral. But the photo of a crowd of Orthodox Jews on Cuomo's slide was from 2006.

It was a very different message than Cuomo's condemnation of bigotry when he had insisted, "There is zero evidence that people of Asian descent bear any additional responsibility for the transmission of the coronavirus." The new message is, don't blame the Asians, blame the Jews.

They did go to a funeral in 2006.

Cuomo was picking up where Mayor Bill de Blasio had left off in his infamous tweet targeting Orthodox Jews. "My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed," the New York City leftist boss had raged.

Medieval bigots blamed the Black Plague on Jews poisoning wells. Modern Democrats blame the Coronavirus on the Jews. Despite the plague of media narratives accompanied by photos of Chassidic Jews praying or mourning, there's as little evidence for the latter as for the former.

Cuomo's threat to synagogues was prompted by a supposed resurgence of the virus. De Blasio had already announced that the spike in the targeted areas would lead to school and business closures. Except that a number of those areas have African-American, Latino or Asian majorities. But instead Democrats and the media have focused in on the "Jewish" areas.

And even those "Orthodox Jews" areas are far from a homogenous monocultural community.

Chassidic Jews, a subset of Orthodox Jews, may stand out, but so do the Amish. So-called "chassidic neighborhoods" in Brooklyn are actually made up of the usual New York mix of African-Americans, Latinos, and assorted immigrant groups, including Muslim immigrants.

Coronavirus deaths among Asians in New York have been twice as high among whites and approaching five times as high among Latinos and African-Americans. New York City's worst death rates were not in Borough Park or Williamsburg, but in a Bronx neighborhood, in East New York, in Flushing, Queens, in Far Rockaway, and in Brighton Beach.

None of those are Chassidic neighborhoods. Only one has a significant Orthodox population.

Nor are the highest positive rates in Orthodox or Chassidic areas. You have to get through five Queens neighborhoods before making it to Borough Park. And Borough Park, and most Brooklyn neighborhoods, except East New York, are far below Queens and Bronx neighborhoods when it comes to cases per population. Borough Park is only the 49th highest zip code in actual mortality rates, Williamsburg is in 79th place.

And yet the insistence that the outbreak is an Orthodox Jewish problem is ubiquitous. It pops up in the media and in rhetoric by top Democrats that stigmatizes religious Jews for the virus.

The Democrats who rose to denounce scapegoating of Asians have joined in the racism.

The media pumps out stories blaming the outbreak on Orthodox Jews with a cheerful disregard for facts or basic urban geography. The Associated Press rolled out an entire story blaming the outbreak of coronavirus infections on Orthodox Jews, but the only actual neighborhood that it offers statistics for is the "Gravesend section of Brooklyn", a mostly immigrant area that is not home to a Chassidic community and whose Orthodox Jews are Syrian refugees, but is mostly associated with Italian-Americans, with large populations of Chinese and Russian immigrants.

The media won't stop claiming that Orthodox Jews spread the virus because they make a convenient boogeyman for its hipster readers who despise traditional Judeo-Christian religions.

The New York Times, which has run the most articles blaming Orthodox Jews for the outbreak, has linked them to cultural lefty hobgoblins like opponents of vaccines and Trump supporters.

"N.Y.C. Threatens Orthodox Jewish Areas on Virus, but Trump's Impact Is Seen," one New York Times headline read.

The power of othering is that all your hatreds and fears can be projected onto those who are different. And despite all the politically correct lectures on race and hate, the Times needs its own others to hate. The most obvious 'tell' is that when the Times writes about any other group, it quotes members of the community, but when it writes about Chassidic Jews, it turns to opponents and critics of the community who are happy to nod along to the negative coverage.

That's why a rise in positive test results in a Chinese area isn't a story, a rise in a black area is a story about racism and inequity, but a rise in an Orthodox Jewish area is a story about ignorant religious fanatics who support Trump, insist on praying, and don't trust the medical experts.

The Orthodox Jewish community has suffered from the virus, as have many other groups. It's no more at fault for it than they are. It isn't unique because more Orthodox Jews have come down with the virus, but because they make a convenient scapegoat for the failures of Democrat officials like Cuomo and De Blasio, for the blatant flouting of their rules by rioters and hipsters.

Chassidic Jews in particular are stereotypically 'Other' with strange garb, incomprehensible beliefs, accents, large families, and long beards, but they're white enough that hating them is socially acceptable for progressives who can act out their xenophobia without feeling guilty.

Even before the pandemic, the media was eager to provide a platform for every special interest out to bash Orthodox Jews, from the YAFFED campaign by leftists against religious Jewish schools to opponents of circumcision to animal rights cranks campaigning against Kosher meat.

The new coronavirus antisemitism relies on the same stereotypes and slurs: Orthodox Jews are ignorant, superstitious, flout authority, and need to be saved from their backward ways. These are the progressive prejudices that permeate the media's coverage of Orthodox Jews. And it's part of the reason why Orthodox Jews are a Republican constituency in presidential elections.

Bigotry isn't just about the pleasures of hate. It's how those in power redirect blame for their crimes and failures, and a means for those who hate to gain a false sense of power and control.

Blaming the upsurge on an outside group creates a false sense of security for everyone else.

And when it's no longer possible to pretend that the upsurge is limited to Orthodox Jews, then they can still be blamed for having caused it with their weddings, funerals, and their prayers.

Best of all, none of the newfound bigots will blame Governor Cuomo or Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The two top Democrats who mishandled the pandemic in the worst ways possible, while spewing lies, excuses, and smears at their serial press conferences, won't be held accountable.

And that's why every time things get worse, Cuomo and De Blasio will blame the Jews

See you tomorrow bli neder
