**UPDATE: The OBAMA YOUTH video (below) was mysteriously removed from Youtube! Now why do you think it was taken down?
Here are some interesting videos to see. The first one is of a new OBAMAYOUTH, which some people compare to the Hitler Youth. I myself don't want to make this comparison. Obama is not saying that Jews are vermin (at least publicly). However, it is a bit disturbing to see these youth in military duds. Hmmmm.
If anyone wishes to view an additional Obama Youth video, which shows an old film of German children being indoctrinated with Hitlerism in their classrooms, click HERE.
This second video is of a Rep. Brad Sherman saying that they are using 'panic' and Martial Law to pressure the House to pass the bail out bill. It actually makes a lot of sense. Want something done fast with no one having a lot of time to snoop into your 400+ page (phone book size) $700 billion bail out bill and find something sneaky slipped in there? Put them in a panic, turn up the pressure, tell them the sky is going to fall and brand them as 'unpatriotic' if they ask too many questions. I love it. Politics is so dirty.
It would be much more humane and merciful to the world if the reactor was destroyed first, before there could be retaliation on a nuclear scale from both sides. We must destroy their nuclear capability as soon as possible.

It is true, not all of Americans were put under Martial law. Yet. But some Americans were. Your Representatives.
Also, did you all see this article from Reuters? "China Banks Told to Halt Lending to US Banks-SCMP" Alas, the once great America is spiralling down, perhaps never to be the great power it was ever again.
Here's another thing to scare you about your freedoms under an Obama presidency: Obama doesn't want you listening to conservative talk radio. A quote I found says he stated in a speech, "The one thing that I want to insist on is that, as I travel around the country, the American people are a decent people. Now they get confused sometimes. You know, they listen to the wrong talk radio shows or watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they're, they're basically decent, they're basically sound." - Barack Hussein Obama So, better not listen to Arutz Sheva either. He may send his Truth Squad on you.

Yah, yah, I say that every year. Well, in spite of my good intentions, I really haven't achieved all those lofty ambitions, and even not so high goals I had set for myself to 'change' for the new year. Something as simple as wanting to make lists for myself, I still haven't managed to do. I have said for the last two years, that I need to make a check list of all the things I need to do during the day. By doing this, I will be compelled to get more done, and also feel some sense of accomplishment when I get to check tasks done off the list. But though my good intentions are there, I seem to float through the day. I may get things done, and yes, I get my shows done, I write my INN articles, blog and meet my deadlines, but I still feel a lack of accomplishment. Why?
Yesterday while saying my morning prayers, I looked around my house and saw my book shelves stuffed with books, some on their sides on top of the nicely arranged books below. I have too many books, too many chachkas, too much clutter in this house. My closet is jammed with clothes that I don't really want to give away, thinking that 'someday' I will fit back into them. My kids still have stuffed animals in their rooms cluttering their shelves, even though my youngest is already 11 years old. This is not an Israeli house, it's an 'American' one. I have too much. I have to shed. Oh how I want to shed. The clutter weighs down my soul.
And so, with the idea of progress, not perfection, as I probably will fall now and then, I am already before the New Year, starting a weekly calendar list with the hours of the day to be filled in. I may not accomplish everything on my list, but the sense of checking the things I do accomplish, off of it, will give me a 'visual' of the things I HAVE completed. When I get things done now, I don't notice the accomplishments. When I write them down, and see them, they become real. I need the visuals.
There are those of you who may have very orderly lives, some of you may already keep 'list making' as part of your daily ritual. I'm more of a free bird, joyfully flying from one project to another. But this bird wants to manage her nest a bit better this year. Clean out the clutter, write down my daily schedule, get my priorities done and then make sure to schedule an hour of 'fun' during my day. Joy is important in serving G-d. Laugh, rejoice and serve, although not necessarily in that order.
Here are two short Rosh HaShana New Year videos for you. One funny, one more serious.
WHO SHALL LIVE?
Think what things you want to really change this year, and then start, even before Rosh HaShana. That way you are already entering the new year showing G-d you already are making the effort to change. Remember the old adage: If nothing changes, nothing changes. Here's a great website to download for free any type of calendar you wish. I like the weekly one with the hours of the day to fill in.
I wish all my readers a very sweet, blessed, productive, healthy, safe and happy New Year!

I don't usually publish or even discuss, most of the emails I am swamped with, however a few here I wanted others to see. I asked permission from the authors to publish these emails, of which they heartily accepted.
1) Foot in the Mouth: email in reference to the TnT 'Tovia & Tamar Show' where Tovia constantly describes the condition of his spleen:
2: What is to Become of the Diaspora Jews?
Wednesday evening my family and I, along with some others from Mishkahn David went to Providence, RI for a celebration of the 60th anniversary of Israel. What I saw and experienced actually saddened me and I thought I would pass it on to you, if for no other reason then to give you something to chew on.
3. Sinking In
Tamar, I wanted to share this with you. Shifra Hoffman
Well, Readers, your comments on these emails will be greatly appreciated.

***For some truly awesome photos of IKE's distruction, likening it to a plague, click HERE and then return to read this blog.
When we learn about the plagues of Egypt, do we get angry at the person who is teaching us this biblical history? Most of us would say no. It is in this vein that I wish to point your attention to the massive plagues that seem to be happening in the United States. ...And don't be angry at me that I am asking you to consider this.
(Below: Mass Exodus Fom Hurricane Ike)
In the last two hurricanes that slammed into the U.S., we have seen a true-blue exodus take place of 3 million people. Two million running from Gustav and another one million from Ike. If you are not aware, three million people is close to half the population of Israel! Can you imagine HALF of the population of Israel having to flee their homes in an exodus like what took place in the USA?
As G-d fearing people, we know that G-d controls everything in this world. Nothing happens without His allowing it to happen. This does not mean that I believe in a cruel mean G-d that sits up in heaven and throws lightening bolts in anger against mankind below. Not at all! I believe that G-d created us, loves us, and wants us to follow His ways, to cling to Him, and to grow from the challenges we face. I believe He wants us to make the proper choices in life so that we can take this world and make it better after being here. If we make the wrong choices, if we chose to do evil, then it's not just a punishment, per se, rather, a CONSEQUENCE.
Imagine that you are a parent. If one of your children does not clean his room, throwing his books and shoes in the middle of the floor and then decides to go to bed, would it be a 'punishment' if he got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, rubbing his eyes and then tripping over the mess he left? A punishment, or a consequence? And do you, his parent want your child to trip and hurt themselves? Absolutely not. You gave him instructions. You told him to keep his
Map of Missiles/Rockets That Reach Israeli Population Centers and International Airport.
room tidy and reminded him that he has a habit of not wanting to put things in order before he goes to bed. But these are the consequences of disobeying the rules, the laws of nature, the laws of the home. You, the parent would hope that your child would now have learned his lesson and will now follow the rules of safety and a harmonious home life in the manual you gave him of house rules. Others would call it the 'Bible'.
The Bush administration is at this moment working to undermine Israel and destroy her. Because the establishment of a Palestinian State in the heartland of Israel would be impossible for Israel to survive. All of Israel's major poulation centers, including her international airport, would be vulnerable from mortar, rocket and missile attacks.
The Bush administration wants to go against the Bible, G-d's word, and divvy up Jerusalem and the land of Israel. Something that G-d said He would not tolerate. Yet Bush & Co. continue to press on, pressuring Israel to make more concessions, more good will gestures, more prisoner releases of convicted terrorist murderers, before the end of Bush's 8 year term is up, in only several weeks time.
Egyptain Plague of Hailfire
Pharoah also tried to crush the Children of Israel. He was the one who had the hardened heart, yet his whole nation suffered. Some Egyptians feared G-d, and hid their animals inside their homes and barns when the burning hail storms came down and demolished their farms. The Egyptians suffered much damage, but still survived to rebuild and recoup. Do we not see the same thing happening in America now? It was hurt, but it too survived, and will hobble along re-building from this latest plague.
Yes, in G-d fearing people's eyes, Gustav and Ike, the exodus of 3 million people, the devastation and havoc, was similar to one of the plagues of Egypt. I am not at all happy about this. The American people are a good people. I would imagine it would be more just to see the Islamic TERROR regimes suffer. But I do not claim to know all of G-d's ways or His accounting. Perhaps troubles befall the Jews and now the Americans because G-d cares enough to straighten us out, where as He has less interest in disciplining the more evil ones? I am at a loss. However, one thing I do I believe, and that is, if this part of history were happening before the Torah was given, it would have made it in as one of the stories of the Bible. Perhaps it would have gone something like this:
"And King Bush, prince of the Western World continued to make the lives of the Children of Israel very bitter. He lured the corrupt Kings of Israel to the peace table promising riches and open markets and peace. But the price was the Land of Israel to be given to the sons of Ishmael. And The Holy One, Blessed Be He, made a great wind to blow over the seas over the southern region which belonged to King Bush.
And a wall of water and great winds crashed into the homes and great cities of the King. But he would not hearken to the word of the L-rd. And another great storm came on the heels of the first, displacing millions of people, and still King Bush did not hearken. And another wall came down, this time in their financial sector which they called Wall Street. And the great institutions that were housed there fell, leaving the population to carry the debts of silver and gold.
And a great financial woe settled on this land, and the people cried."….
