Repost: Wrong Call, Twitter


"I think Twitter's approach is being very heavy-handed,'' he said. "They suspended my account without warning me. They didn't tell me for 24 hours why it had been suspended.''


NBC has racked up record ratings through the first couple days of the London Games, but also has faced harsh criticism online, largely from American viewers upset with tape-delayed coverage. Angry Olympic fans used the hashtag "nbcfail'' and even set up at least one parody account poking fun at the TV wait.
The network is streaming the events online, but that clearly isn't enough for some viewers who shelled out thousands of dollars for big-screen TVs and want their live coverage.
"If this Gary Zenkel doesn't want to hear from the many tens of thousands of customers he upset with his network's coverage, I think he's in the wrong job,'' Adams said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
When Twitter receives a complaint like the one against Adams, its support team does its own investigation before deciding whether to suspend the account.
Adams said he found Zenkel's email with a simple online search, but said he didn't grab it from an NBC website.
"His address is not a private email address,'' Adams said. "It's a corporate address. It's not his private email address. It's a corporate account. It's company information.''

I'm not watching the Olympics, anyway; and the only worth-it person this year on NBC at the Olympics is Bob Costas. Now I have one more reason not to give Anti-Semitic NBC any ratings: they're whiny. "If this Gary Zenkel doesn't want to hear from the many tens of thousands of customers he upset with his network's coverage, I think he's in the wrong job." 

By the way, unlike NBC, Fox News lets one contact them; and even the Fox News spouses who are public figures get involved--even if one doesn't like how they get involved. To be fair, for example, to Geraldo Rivera's wife, she did get involved when I had some complaints about her influence on Geraldo and her befriending Traci Lynn Johnson (Traci Lynn Barber by now, I suppose). She at least took my complaints seriously enough, even if she didn't find them legitimate, to respond to them. Furthermore, to be fair, she did--as I stated--influence a change a heart in me.


Back to the point, Twitter made the wrong call and gave an Anti-Semitic (with the exception of Bob Costas) and whiny network too much credence or kavod, or whatever you want to call it. Twitter, therefore, should give Guy Adams his Twitter account back (and so be if this blog entry gets me suspended from Twitter; I wouldn't support the Anti-Semitic NBC, who could've easily boycotted the IOC for refusing to remember the murder victims in Munich, anyway. Why Twitter did, I'll never know.).


Meanwhile and while I'm obviously calling for a boycott of all of NBC but for Bob Costas, I want to give one more plug to open and Philosemitic Fox News--and a shout-out for a happy seventh birthday to Sol Rivera (Geraldo's and Erica's daughter) and a happy ninth anniversary to Geraldo and Erica (Make this one last, Geraldo!).

Can Someone Help Me Figure Out What His Cousin's Name Was?

Look at Line 7. "Cousin J. [???]." Same for Jan Molnar.

I've Seen Sunnyvale On My Blog Before, But...

He or she must really like reading my blog for some reason tonight. I wonder why he or she doesn't follow it--there's one person from Michigan and one person from Atlanta who follow my blog.

What Glamour? From PolishForums.com

The naysayers like jon357 and Magdalena (who, for whatever reason, want me to continue to fall for Dad's and Pop-Pop's romanticized narrative about Great-Granddad) are the ones who really get my goat. I myself was shocked by the truth--never did I dream that Great-Granddad Czarnecki was born a Chernetski in Tsuman, Ukraine (then Cumań in then-Wołyn, Ukraine-Poland Russia) while his dad was back home in Lipsk nad Biebrzą or Somovo(? So the record says, but would he really have been all the way in Somovo, far from Lipsk; and not, say, Szumowo or Shamovo?)? He was born while his mom may have been making a Rosh Hodesh visit to a cousin, Vil'gel'm Andrulevich, in Buzhanka in the Kiev, Ukraine region. 

The story gets even less glamorous. There is nothing glamorous about converting to Catholicism to fool the Russians into thinking that you finally believe in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah--especially when your family sits shiva for you because you did so. As an e-mail from my Granduncle Tony alludes to (although the poor man still denies that we're Jewish--and that's another discussion. Anyway):

I never seen nor did anyone mention anything special brought from Poland. A friend from Sugar Notch, Mrs. Bertha Wawrzyn, visited Poland every few years to see her family and would visit the family while there. All she ever brought back were photos that she took of the Polish Czarnecki's (see earlier comments).

There was very little discussion of the Polish life and family. Usually, when there was, it was a brief mention of the farm that was left behind. There did not seem to be any regrets about leaving for a better life. After all , they settled among Polish, Slavic, Hungarian, Lithuanian, and Ukrainian people just like themselves. Similar language, similar customs, similar faces, houses, churches, etc. But life was much better than on the farm. They were quite happy in America and much better off. The motherland, Poland, was far off and just a memory, not to be forgotten but no regrets for leaving either.

Periodically a church pastor would run a heritage trip back to Poland for a group. Very few of those who immigrated would return. Occasionally someone "in the family" in America would join a relative for the return trip, Usually meeting the Polish or Slovak relatives for the first time and occasionally maintaining a letter writing relationship afterwards. This DID NOT happen in our family.

There was not very much correspondence with the Polish family. Only an infrequent letter. There were no exchanges other than through the Polish Church which would have clothing drives and send clothes to Poland in general, but not to specific family members. Bertha's photos which came after the trips were the only contact until they asked for the deed to be changed in the mid 1960's.

Once the conversion happened and the shiva was sat, that was it "until they asked for the deed to be changed in the mid 1960's"; with the Holocaust being that dark interim in regards to any contact even with Bertha Wawrzyn--and three Czarnieckis, perhaps cousins, are listed on JewishGen as having been Holocaust victims from Białystok:

What glamour would there be in that for my great-granddad "Antoni" and his parents "Julian" and "Alexandria" (and they gave both sets of his grandparents the names "Antoni" and "Katarzyna"--why that didn't ring bells or raise flags for me at first, I don't know.)? What glamour was there to be had for living as Crypto-Jewish Catholics in Sugar Notch, Pennsylvania to escape WASP (White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant) and WEC (White, European Catholic) Anti Semitism? What glamour was in for "Antoni" (later "Anthony") to grow up to become a man like his "holy terror", "tough cookie" mom (who abused his drunkard dad, her drunkard husband), and then commit suicide once he had time to reflect on just what he became? What glamour?

So, my dad and granddad paint this romanticized picture of a lone Polish immigrant who served in Korea and died of Black Lung in 1972, which is far from the Anthony Czarnecki ne G-d-knows-who Chernetski that he was.

The Olympics...

Even if the 2012 IOC behaves like even the fascist IOC 76 years later, we remember. Not much changed in 36 and 40 years, did it?

Proof Of Chauvinism In Our Society Re Kristen Stewart

According to Fox News, people are even threatening to murder Kristen Stewart (and all this after innocent people were murdered in Aurora, Colorado last week!). Who's blaming the married-with-children, in-a-higher-position (director-to-the-actor), older Rupert Sanders? Even Liberty Ross Sanders is blaming Kristen Stewart. Our society patriarchally, in a bad way, refuses to recognize that "To whom much is given, much is required."

Here (as my sister noted, by the way) is an older man taking advantage of a woman who's roughly half his age, and old enough to be her dad at that (He's 41; she's 22). Here is a married man pursuing a single woman, and cheating on his wife and kids in pursuing any (let alone a single-but-not-available--but still single) woman; and here is a director pursuing an actress.

Did true Christianity (even all those years ago, and throughout the ages when it has resurrected) and the feminist movement do nothing for society? Jesus, for example, forgave the adulterous woman and the Samaritan at the well, while He constantly lambasted the hypocritical Pharisees. Much later on, He brought forth even two Non-Messianic Jewish women to liberate women--Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. 


So if Jesus brought forth even Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan to liberate women--even modern-day Samaritans at wells and adulterous women--, why can't we forgive Kristen Stewart? Furthermore, we do we judge her and not the higher-up Rupert Sanders all the more so?

Once a Jew, Always a Jew? Jewcy.Com and My Take...

I somewhat agree with Michael Nehora. As a Messianic Jew who's not writing this to proselytize or get into very-long discussions and debate (since I'm taking it and adapting it from my original comments, anyway), I believe that Jews are first and foremost an 'am, an ethnos, a people--which is part of why, as Torah commanded, one must be cut off (i.e., exiled or even put to death) for worshiping other gods--viz., cutting yourself off from G-d in some way was cutting off your very life, your very being.

Of course and along the same lines, under the New Covenant, we (that is, we Messianic Jews) believe that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Messiah and that either Yeshua died for you or you will ultimately die (viz. be eternally condemned to She'ol, Gehenna, etc.) for not believing in Him. Thus,  cutting yourself off from G-d (in this case, Yeshua or Jesus) in some way is cutting off your very life, your very being.


Hence, as the Talmud (which I don't follow) rightly states (nonetheless), and as Michael alluded to, "A Jew, even if he sins, is still a Jew." Because of this and because of cutting yourself off from the Jewish G-d, you are a Jew who has cut his life off as opposed to a Jew who became a gentile. As Tanakh states, anyway, a Kushite can't change his skin and the leopard can't change his spots (cf. Jeremiah 13:23); thus a Jew, though he or she cuts his or her life off, remains a Jew.


Besides, as I didn't think about until I posted this blog entry:


"When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations,
When He separated the sons of Adam,He set the boundaries of the peoplesAccording to the number of the children of Israel.
For the Lord’s portion is His people;
Jacob is the place of His inheritance."




Toby Keith May Be A Song Stealer As Well...

He already got into trouble for "I Love This Bar" because he stole an idea. While nothing is new under the sun and one can't copyright ideas, one should at least try to credit the one from whom he got a very-specific manifestation of an idea. For example, he took a manifestation of an idea that Robert Earl Keen had, tweaked it a bit, and tried to make it his own--viz. "Bullets In the Gun".

I even read somewhere that he once said that he can't read sheet music, and the interviewer asked him what he does about publishing his songs, etc. in sheet-music form. After hearing the "Bullets In the Gun" controversy (hearing both songs as well--viz. REK's and "Bullets In the Gun", too) and reading that, I began to believe that Toby Keith is an idea stealer if not an outright song stealer. Listen:





Are at least the lyrics and the idea behind them all too similar too you?

I'd Appreciate If Someone Could Translate the Following For Me...

ul. Mickiewicza 1, 16-400 Suwałki
parter budynku
Polska

Attn: Elżbieta Giedrojć

Director Giedrojć:
I inquire of the Suwałki Register Office regarding information on my family. My family was Jewish before my great-great-grandparents converted to Catholicism in or after 1904. Therefore, I have no true birth and paternity information on even my great-great-grandparents. 

For example (and I have attached copies of certain records for your reference per what I am explaining), my great-great-granddad claimed to be Julian John “Felix” Czarnecki né Julian Jan “Feliks” Czarniecki, and the son of Antoni Czarniecki and Katarzyna née Daniłowiczówna. He specifically claimed to be born once on December 24, 1876; and another time on December 24, 1877. However, in a 1920 United States Census Record, he revealed his surname to be “Chernetski”. He also was born or at least made his childhood residence his family’s farm in Lipsk nad Biebrzą.

His wife (my great-great-grandmother), Alexandria Alice Andrulewicz Czarnecki, claimed to have been born on June 26, 1882 in Bose, Sejny Uyezd, Suwałki Gubernia. She claimed to be born Aleksjondria Alicja Andrulewiczówna and the daughter of Antoni Andrulewicz and Katarzyna née Margiewiczówna. Yet, her son (my great-granddad) Anthony John Czarnecki, Sr. was (rather, at least she claimed that he was) born in Cumań, Wołyń. She also had a cousin, Vil’gel’m Andrulevich, in Buzhanka, Zvenigorodka Uyzed, Kiev Gubernia. 

Speaking of my great-granddad, his parents claimed him to be born conversely in Cumań, Wołyń and mainland Poland. They claimed him to be born Antoni Jan Czarniecki on October 23, 1904 and October 24, 1904. He immigrated to Sugar Notch, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, United States with his mother in May 1908.

As I stated, I have attached copies of certain records for your reference per what I am explaining. I hope that you can provide me with the correct information about my great-granddad, his parents, and his grandparents. I also hope—if I may request—that you can provide me with as many records containing the information as possible. In particular, I am interested in specific records such as their birth, baptism, circumcision (b’rit milah), confirmation, bar- and bat-mitzvah, and death certificates and records.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Sincerely,

Nicole Czarnecki

Why I Disagree With The Following Proverb

"The kind of ancestors you have is not as important as the ones your children have." Amish Proverb, as seen on Twitter.

My take: the kind of ancestors whom you have is as important as the ones that your descendants have; because if you don't understand your ancestors to some extent, you're not going to learn from and be better than them--after all, "You're only as good as your parents" (as my friend Jim states) and "Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it."

Credit To LaGrange, George And Others For Being Sane

Here's a sampling of stats which do show that some people are sane and not buying the Anti-Semitic nonsense, even if the ADL won't be at the forefront of defending the Jewish people this time:

Lowber, Pennsylvania arrived from google.com on "The Nicole Factor: James Holmes Was Not A Jew For Jesus...." by searching for anti-semites james holmes.
14:56:07 -- 6 hours 42 mins ago

I Am So Convinced That There Is Not a "Jewish Lobby"...

If there was, the ADL would've spoken out a long time ago against the Anti Semitism regarding James Holmes. I'm convinced that there is an Anti-Semitic lobby and an Anti-Missionary (Anti-Christian, Anti-Messianic) lobby, however. Why else would a Messianic Jew not be allowed to call out the ADL for not saying that James Holmes is an agnostic gentile who merely happened to volunteer at a nonsectarian camp incidentally owned by the JBBBSLA--who are not pedophiles, by the way (and how ridiculous of Bronx, New York to even search that they might be!)?

By the way, why do Google and YouTube allow searches that James Holmes could be Jewish but not allow Messianic Jews to say that he was wrongly classified as Jewish, since the ADL won't say it? By the way, here's a sampling of the ridiculousness that Google allows--note how many Anti-Semitic searches there are:
