We have written several times before about the effort by Jewish Voice for Peace activists in Ithaca, NY, where Cornell is located, to advance a referendum at the GreenStar Food Coop to boycott Israeli products.

The same monstrous federal agency that brought us food pyramids, plate graphics, and encourages America to eat vegan is after health food bar maker, KIND. Recently, KIND received a love letter from the FDA citing multiple labeling violations. “However, none of your products listed above meet the requirements for use of the…

Gaga or Gag Gag for Hillary Chipotle story?

Posted by
4/14/2015 at 1:00pm
The Hillary Chipotle story is either one of the most amazing unintended earned-media campaign stories ever, or a contrived set up. Regardless, put points in Team Hillary column. Maggie Haberman at The NY Times broke the story about Hillary’s supposedly secret trip to Chipotle on her Scooby trip to Iowa. The story…

Much in the same way President Obama’s campaigns featured a reimagined ‘O’, Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House includes a reconfigured letter ‘H’. The internet though? Less than impressed with the embattled former Secretary’s branding effort. Interestingly, it’s not just the intrepid photo shoppers who are having a jolly good…

Californians can now be fined for long showers!

Posted by

I reported that California Governor Jerry Brown unveiled the state’s first water restrictions in response to the “mega-drought”. As I foresaw, the rules have turned out to be more about revenue generation than resource protection. What I did not predict is that my teen son and his lengthy showers would make him the…

It’s getting tougher to be a Jew in Britain. According to a report by the UK’s Community Security Trust, anti-Semitic incidents have skyrocketed in 2014, reaching the highest levels ever recorded. The Simon Wiesenthal Center reports that British Jews are increasingly afraid to visit Jewish-owned stores. A recent UK study finds that almost half…

How’s the war on ISIS going? Perhaps not as badly—or as well—as you might think. New numbers released by the Pentagon show that ISIS has lost control of almost 7000 square miles of territory in Iraq since August of last year. This is a good sign—any front line withdrawal means that…

I’m firmly on Team Hillary Parody 2016. Meaning, I’m definitely a fan of the insultingly hilarious “Candidate Hillary” skits that Saturday Night Live is churning out. This weekend, SNL’s Kate McKinnon donned the pantsuit once more to riff on Hillary’s Big Presidential Announcement©, and it was pretty great. Watch: Any day I…

We were one of the first to report how a candidate for the UCLA Judicial Board was questioned about being Jewish. The supposed logic of the questioning was that her affiliation with Jewish groups on campus might render her unfit because anti-Israel divestment issues may come before the Board. The UCLA incident…

Yesterday we featured Carly Fiorina’s instantaneous reaction to Hillary Clinton’s announcement. Or should we say John Podesta’s announcement followed up by Hillary. Fiorina exhibited what is becoming her trademark: Taking the fight right to Hillary Clinton’s supposed strength, the gender card. Fiorina, as the only woman likely to become a Republican candidate…
