Neo-Nazis Endorse Trump

Donald Trump just got a big endorsement  but it may upset his pal Vladimir Putin, who hates fascists.

Rocky Suhayda, chairman of the American Nazi Party (ANP), said the New York billionaire is hugely popular among his followers.

Joe Lieberman May Endorse Trump

UPDATE -- After his disturbing flirtation with Donald Trump and no doubt after reading the kind of reaction posted by readers below, Joe Lieberman has decided to endorse Hillary Clinton.

Only Thing 'Rigged' Is Crybaby's Excuses

Donald Trump's complaints about a rigged election is just a crybaby looking for an excuse to use when he loses the election.

Like so much of his ranting it is based on a lie told over and over, louder and louder, as if that made it so.

I Love Albert Einstein

Or, as an IT guy once offered by way of a model computer password: “IloveAlbertEinstein.” The phrase was memorable and unpredictable, and therefore difficult to hack, but my first reaction was to wonder: IT guy, you’re brainy, but why do you love Albert Einstein?

DNC Spotlight On Disability Issues: Clinton Recognizes The Largest Minority In US

When Hillary Clinton took to the stage the final night of the Democratic National Convention, several disability activists had one question for the candidate. Will she include people with disabilities in a meaningful way in her speech?

The convention already had touched on disability issues—from Anastasia Somoza, a young woman with cerebral palsy delivering a speech Monday, and Sen. Tom Harkin highlighting the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act on Tuesday, to discussions on mental illness and drug addiction, as well as speakers such as Rep. Gabby Giffords and Rep. Tammy Duckworth addressing the convention.

B’Yadenu: It's In Our Hands To Create Inclusive Day Schools

Children are served best in classrooms and other learning enviornments that consistently take into account their specific learning needs. The support children receive is most effective when it is offered throughout the entire day of learning—by all educators—as opposed to only specific periods of the day.

With this premise, in November 2011, the Jim Joseph Foundation awarded a grant to Boston-based Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) (in partnership with Gateways: Access to Jewish Education and Yeshiva University School Partnership) for the development and implementation of the B’Yadenu model in five Boston-area Jewish day schools: Gann Academy, Jewish Community Day School, Maimonides School, Solomon Schechter Day School and Striar Hebrew Academy of Sharon.

Rudy: Bibi Endorses Trump

You'd think he learned his lesson four years ago, but if Rudy Giuliani is to be believed, Benjamin Netanyahu is once again endorsing the Republican candidate for president. 

That's because one of the Netanyahu government's greatest fears is as president, Hillary Clinton might try to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the former New York mayor told the Washington Post.

A Comedy Of Anxiety

Making choices can be immobilizing. If recently you’ve bought a laptop or printer, you may have a sense of how hard it is to make a decision. Do you really need a laptop? Perhaps a tablet might do? Do you stick with an inkjet or re-evaluate a laser? Will a multi-function hold up? Too many choices and variables can be overwhelming.
