Banner featuring Theresa May with Star of David earring removed from English city

(JTA) — A banner portraying Prime Minister Theresa May wearing a Star of David earring was removed following accusations of anti-Semitism.

The large banner had hung in the city of Bristol in southwest England before it was removed on Tuesday. It depicted May, of the Conservative Party, surrounded by negative words and phrases, facing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, surrounded by positive ones.

May could be seen wearing a blue Star of David earring, and one of the words surrounding her was “Balfour,” presumably referencing the Balfour Declaration, the 1917 declaration declaring England’s support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Jewish Bristol residents told newspapers that they found the poster anti-Semitic.

Prior to removing the banner, one of the organizers behind the banner said that the Star of David symbolized the English government’s relationship with Israel and was not meant to be anti-Semitic.

“What we are doing with that symbol – it’s an earring – is a reference to Theresa May’s government’s relationship with Israel. It is a critique of her foreign policy, rather than against religion,” Nina Masterson toldThe Bristol Post.

Masterson added: “I’m definitely not an anti-Semite. I have Jewish friends, and my half brother and sister are Jewish.”

DNC Staffer Arrested For Possessing ‘Infant Porn’ Featuring Babies as Young as 6 Months Old

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is hiring! There’s a vacancy in his administration for a computer programmer analyst, in the Department of Design and Construction. That’s because Jacob Schwartz, 29, a DNC staffer and former analyst, has been arrested and charged with being in possession of “kiddie porn” involving children as young as 6 months old.

Schwartz is also the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats. In other words, he was a “made” Democrat, part of the inner circle of budding influential NYC politicians, who was even friends with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robbie Mook.

Schwartz was caught with 3,000 child pornography images and 89 videos on his laptop after he downloaded them from the Internet. He surrendered his laptop to police, signed a release granting them permission to do a search of his hard drive, and was subsequently arrested. He has since posted $7,500 bail.

De Blasio would not comment on the arrest, ignoring questions from reporters about one of his team members. The Post reported Schwartz got the job after completing an internship with de Blasio’s administration. Those political internships are often paid little compensation in exchange for being able to work with high-profile politicians.

Schwartz’ internship led to a salaried position within the de Blasio administration, but in light of the charges against him, he has since been fired. A spokesperson reportedly said Schwartz “is being terminated immediately, and the agency is cooperating with investigators.”

According to court records obtained by the New York Post, Schwartz’ computer contained pictures and video of “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male.”

It’s unclear if the adult male is Schwartz, himself, or someone else; but those details will most likely be presented in court, should his case go to trial without a plea deal being arranged.

Schwartz’ father, a labor lawyer and Democratic blue blood, Arthur Schwartz, called his son’s downfall “a personal tragedy,” saying, “I understand these are serious charges…he’s already in therapy for this.”

But therapy won’t get this pedophile out of jail, if convicted.

As The Free Thought Project has predicted, the pedophile rings of the elite in the U.S. are starting to be broken. Perhaps the highest-profiled scandalous arrest started with a former Speaker of the House.

Yes! That’s right! The highest position any congressman can hold in the U.S. House of Representatives was held by Dennis Hastert, who, in 2016, was convicted of “illegally structuring bank transactions” to provide hush money and cover-up the fact he’d raped several of his wrestlers on his wrestling team decades ago.

But ask any pedophile expert and they’ll tell you, pedophiles do not change — they continue victimizing children, and amass large numbers of victims over their lifetimes.

The next one to fall was Anthony Weiner, husband to Huma Abedin, right hand assistant to Hillary Clinton. Weiner lost his place in Congress years ago when he was caught sexting other women.

Now he’s the center of an investigation in which he was found to have sexted a 14-year-old girl from North Carolina. It’s unclear if his cooperation led to Schwartz’ arrest, but it would not be surprising, given the relationship Weiner had with Washington elite.

Schwartz wasn’t just some low-level staffer at the DNC headquarters — he was an insider, whose father had a long history of promoting candidates. He worked with the Bernie Sanders’ campaign and once helped challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bid for the position by working on the campaign of one of his challengers, Zephyr Teachout.

As TFTP has predicted, members of the elite ruling class, engaged in an elaborate pedophile ring of child rapists, sex traffickers, and child pornographers, will soon be exposed. The children do not stay young their whole lives, and some are talking, conveying horrific stories of sex trafficking, torture, rape, child on child rape, and even ritualistic murder.

As we reported earlier, on an episode of Dr. Phil, a woman relayed how she had been sex trafficked by the political elite in the U.S. since she was a child, and had even been chipped. Her handlers implanted a tracking device inside of her so they could keep track of her at all times.

She said her parents sold her into modern-day sex slavery to one she called her “owner,” who would pass her around to the political elite, who then used her to have sex with children.

As Jay Syrmopolous recently described, “This is just the latest case to emerge in what is now being called #PedoGate. #PedoGate refers to an international pedophile ring composed of politicians and other high profile societal elites.”

“Domestically, there are relatively few high-level arrests, as anytime ‘the elite’ are mentioned alongside the term ‘pedophile,’ the Praetorian guard, aka the corporate media, shout down all those who dare pose any questions about those in power abusing the most vulnerable among us.”

MACRON UNVEILS DIVERSE CABINET FEATURING CRITICS, ADVOCATES OF ISRAEL

 

French President Emmanuel Macron presented a diverse cabinet of 22 ministers, including a Jew, a Muslim and both advocates and critics of Israel.

Macron, a centrist who had served in governments led both by Socialists and Republicans before his election on May 7 on an independent ticket, appointed on Wednesday as his foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, a former defense minister under the previous president, Francois Hollande of the Socialist Party.

 

In 2014, Le Drian wrote in a statement that France “condemns” the firing of rockets into Israel “but requests that Israel” minimize any harm to civilians in its attacks on Hamas.

Macron appointed Edouard Philippe, a lawmaker from the moderate wing of the main center-right The Republicans party, as prime minister.

Macron appointed to health minister Agnes Buzyn, a physician born to a Polish Jewish couple. Her father survived the Holocaust and her mother was born in France shortly after the war to Jewish immigrants from Poland. She is one of 11 women whom Macron made ministers – exactly half of his cabinet.

Francois Bayrou, a billionaire-turned-politician who has in the past criticized what he has called Israel’s “arbitrary and unjust arrests of Palestinians,” among other alleged actions by the Jewish state, was named minister of state – a position equivalent to minister without portfolio which nonetheless suggests seniority.

Bruno le Maire of The Republicans party was made minister of the economy. Pro-Israel activists in France regard him as a staunch ally and defender of the Jewish state, according to the right-leaning news site Alyaexpress.

Last year, le Maire criticized Hollande’s government for supporting a vote at the United Nations educational branch, UNESCO, which ignored Jewish ties to Jerusalem. He called it “a moral and political error.”

Marielle De Sarnez, a former lawmaker at the European Parliament who in 2010 visited Hamas-controlled Gaza and co-authored a letter urging Israel to lift its blockade of the area, was appointed as the minister in charge of European affairs. The letter she co-signed did not mention Hamas’ violations of human rights and terrorist activities. It also praised the work of UNRWA, a UN agency which Israel in those years accused of incitement, as “fantastic.”

Macron appointed Mounir Majhoubi, a 33-year-old entrepreneur whose family is Muslim and has Moroccan roots, to be France’s minister in charge of digitalization. Majhoubi in 2010 opened a successful high-tech firm together with his then business partner, the French-Jewish developer Marc-David Choukroun.

NY’s 1st Hasidic female judge sworn in at ceremony featuring Yiddish ‘God Bless America’ (NOT GOOD!!!!)

(JTA) — Rachel Freier of Brooklyn officially became the first Hasidic woman to be sworn in as a judge in New York state.

Freier, a mother of six and former lawyer who practiced commercial and residential estate law, was sworn in Thursday as the Civil Court judge in Kings County’s 5th judicial district, CBS reported.

She won the post in a September election. Her district encompasses the Brooklyn communities of Kensington, Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace, among others.

At the swearing-in ceremony, the Hasidic performer Lipa Schmeltzer performed the song “God Bless America” in Yiddish while wearing a white suit with colorful doodles, the vosizneias website reported.

Freier, 51, who is also known as Ruchie, worked as a legal secretary and paralegal to support her husband’s Talmudic studies. She is a graduate of Touro College and Brooklyn Law School, and founded the all-female EMT agency Ezras Nashim.

Islamic State releases new video featuring British captive

BEIRUT, Lebanon — British journalist John Cantlie, who is being held prisoner by the Islamic State group, appeared in a new video released Saturday supposedly filmed in the jihadists’ Iraqi stronghold of Mosul.

In the latest installment in a series of propaganda videos released by IS, Cantlie speaks to the camera in the style of a news report.

It is unclear when it was shot, but Cantlie last appeared in an IS video in early 2015.

In Saturday’s video, a gaunt-looking Cantlie says he is in Mosul, IS’s main city in northern Iraq.

Dressed in black and squinting in the sunshine, he is seen standing in front of a metal shack he describes as a media kiosk that distributes IS pamphlets, which was destroyed in an air strike by a US-led coalition.

Speaking in English with Arabic subtitles, as in previous clips of the same style, Cantlie criticizes and derides the US-led campaign launched in 2014 against IS.

He was kidnapped along with journalist James Foley in November 2012 in Syria while covering the war there.

Foley then became the first of several hostages to be slain by the jihadists.

Media rights watchdog Reporters Without Borders has condemned IS for its “cowardly” use of a hostage in a forced role to push the jihadists’ propaganda.
