Re Paid Access To Read "The Nicole Factor" Or Any Other Blogger Blog

A fellow tweeter alerted me to that, and that should not be happening. I don't know whether Blogger was hacked recently, at least two suspicious visits from Russia that registered on Feedjit and not Clustrmaps or Revolver, or anything else had to do with it. Nonetheless, Blogger never makes anyone pay for access to any blog whatsoever.

Meanwhile, I would not be surprised if the suspicious Russian visits had anything to do with it—I have been one of the more vocal laywomen against Trump (not to mention a more-exhausted one for various reasons, including the effects of cyberbullying by Trumpites).  BTW, keep an eye out if you suspect suspicious Russian or any other visits on your blog—given that, for example, I lost a cousin in the Sho'ah around this time 43 years ago (since he was kidnapped on March 31, 1944; in Suwałki as a hostage, and murdered by hanging in June 1944), I myself would be remiss to not speak up, especially since the Russians treated other cousins on that side no better afterwards (and even in being Anusim and b'nei-Anusim, my family did not escape the effects of either the Holocaust in Germany or the Holocaust in Russia—since the Holocaust actually began in Anti-Semitic Stalin in 1922 and did not end until the gulags closed in 1960, 12 years after Stalin implemented a "Final Solution" plan).

Most Of My Commentary Will Have To Be On Twitter, My Blog, &c..

A couple of reasons for this are:


  1. YouTube's continued kiboshing of webcam-upload technology.
  2. Cerebral Palsy and mental illnesses—part of the reason that YouTube's kiboshing of webcam-upload technology is abysmally detrimental to me (and others with disabilities)—don't allow me to have the wherewithal—physically, mentally, or otherwise—to be able to write, type, hold a camera, etc. 17-15/7. There are even days on which I can't write about Reilly of late.
  3. I'm working on becoming an author and I have other things to do as well—I don't have the luxury to write, type, etc.. at least 8/7.
Thus, most of my commentary will have to be on Twitter, Blogger, etc. to save me strength energy, time.

Pro Tip: Don't Post Bigotry On Which You Don't Want To Be Called Out

Two examples of Anti-Semitic bigotry this week include those from Bill Roper—whose WriterBeat post was shared on LinkedIn in the name of freedom of speech—and Felicity Jane Lowde—whom had the complete chutzpah to confront me on my Facebook page over my RT of @ElderofZiyon's response to her tweet. 

By the way, another pro tip: never use your full name on Facebook. Giving your full name like that could be extremely dangerous—after all, even Jessica Leeds, who gave out only her first and last names, received horrid attacks and threats because of Lou Dobbs' criminal tweeting of her personal information—even if you're a horrid Anti Semite or another kind of horrid bigot, you don't need to give the extremists any fodder. For instance, saying that "Israel was bombing little children"—as foolish as you are for accusing the IDF of infantocide and paedocide—will incur the dangerous wrath of Kahanists whom don't know to leave well enough alone—Meir Kahane was a violent extremist, and quite a few of his followers continue to incite and/or attempt violence against those with whom they disagree.

Bigotry on all sides—whether Kahanist or Anti Semitic, or other kinds of bigotry—is dangerous; posting bigotry on which you don't want to be called out is not a good idea, and bigots and other hateful people on all sides can and will use any information that they find on others—including other bigotsto harm them—as aforementioned, Lou Dobbs harmed Jessica Leeds by using only her name to find and share information on her.

Originally On LinkedIn: Facebook, Its TOS, and Algorithms?

A while back, a Facebook friend told me that Facebook apparently enforces its TOS by using algorithms. Algorithms—a well-over-$1-Million company uses algorithms to enforce its TOS?


"I believe the maker of facebook is sexist and racist. Something should be done about it. I got in trouble for swearing at a racist but he didnt get in trouble for being racist. Something is so wrong with that"
I wish that I could've replied to her comment with the observation that its more that Facebook is evidently not hiring enough people to enforce its TOS—and while I grant that there are multiple TOS-violation reports a day, I also grant that there are:


  1. Many people looking for jobs.
  2. People like me whom'd be glad to have a job helping Facebook enforce its own TOS, especially since many of us have been affected by TOS violators. As for me, I live in Maryland and could help enforce Facebook's TOS virtually—I can't drive (since I have Cerebral Palsy) and, while I'm working on being an author and analyst-commentator, would love to be off of SSI benefits as well to help Facebook crack down the kind of, e.g., ableism and Anti Semitism by which I've been affected. Of course, I have to be prepared for the reality that Facebook will see me as nothing more than my Cerebral Palsy and what mental illnesses I have—after all, why would Facebook see me as any different since they often don't care when an individual with a disability is attacked by a TOS violator?
  3. TOS violations that are so egregious, they've had to be reported to the FBI since Facebook wouldn't deal with them—and I remember that the FBI emailed me back per one threat that I reported and told me that I needed to forward the threat report to the Secret Service.
  4. Too many instances in which Facebook even restores accounts and pages of TOS violators—and one page that they restored involved a threat against Hillary Clinton, while another on which someone reported content posted an obscene "**** Facebook" meme regarding when Facebook actually did enforce their TOS.
Since Facebook probably won't hire me, though (See Point Two and consider the case of Katie Shoener in a non-Facebook field.), they could at least consider what I've written here & hire others whom are looking for jobs.

My Basic Twitter Philosophy


  1. If you unfollow me and I am following you, I will unfollow you in turn if I become aware that you have unfollowed me. Since I hold the philosophy that people online are a reflection of whom they are offline (including, as Curt Schilling pointed out, whom they would be offline if they could be that way offline), I have no time for you if you have no time for me, I have, as far as I recall, broken my unfollow-for-unfollow rule only twice, and that includes that I refollowed one person whom'd unfollowed me only because his work in his field is influential enough to merit for him a follow. I will also unfollow you if I recall that you followed me and then unfollowed me after I followed you, whether or not my recollection is correct.
  2. If you abuse me in any way on Twitter—for example, if you twist my words (or similarly libel me) and/or engage in Anti-Semitic attacks—I will report and/or block you.
  3. If you abuse others on Twitter, I will report and/or block you.
  4. RTs are not endorsements unless the original tweet is favorited and/or the RTs are noted as endorsements of the original tweets. What RTs often are is FOIP (for only informational purposes).
  5. While I do "unfollow for unfollow", I do not do "follow for follow"—I follow whom I want to follow, and I will follow those whom follow me if I find them worth following.
  6. While and since I won't, and I really even can't, report every abusive instance and/or block every person whom's engaging in abuse, I will call out someone whom's being abusive if I feel (or at least hope) that I can reason with them. 
  7. I get Twitter notifications via text messages—and I don't have a smartphone, unlike some of these rich kids and others whom can afford smartphones. As soon as I get a chance to respond to and/or RT tweets, I'll respond to them; and be aware that I can see on my phone what abusive tweets you deleted and/or thought that you blocked from my view—and I will report and/or block you, and/or call you out.

Originally On LinkedIn: Why I Have Nine Pending LinkedIn Invitations: Hint: I'm Not Here To Facebook

The theme of how LinkedIn has gone from a professional-networking forum to a social-media forum with even some cesspool parts has obviously become a recurring theme. I myself have been will be the first to admit that I've probably or even definitely contributed to that in part: i.e., I've likely posted more Facebookesque content and/or content in more of a Facebookesque way than I should have. 
I nonetheless have tried to keep LinkedIn a professional-networking forum on my end, and I've written that I hope that Microsoft's buyout of LinkedIn would affect LinkedIn to rebecome LinkedIn instead of another Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp or whatever other "What's that app?" social-media application. By the way, "application" is of course the term that most professionals are supposed to call an "app"—after all, a separation of standard language and colloquialisms/dialects/"slang" exists along with the separation of the professional and personal realms—unless one has to utilize slang terms in his or her field (e.g., if he or she is a general-demographics researcher with Pew or a TMZ reporter, or an analyst and a commentator), he or she might as well leave his or her colloquial way of speaking in his or her personal realm (e.g., at home)!
On that note, one ought to leave—or at least try to leave—his or her way of connecting with people in his or her personal realm—including in regard to how he or she uses social media—within his or her personal realm. For my part, I've either rejected LinkedIn invitations, held off on accepting LinkedIn invitations, and even removed LinkedIn connections; and I've even reported people whose LinkedIn profiles have looked suspicious. 
In conclusion, I suggest that my currently-backlogged connection inviters and others understand—especially if I did not make clear in many of my previous LinkedIn posts—that I'm here to professionally network, not open another social media account, and that I won't be reaching out to or accepting the reachings out of many people—and even on Facebook and other social-media forums that I do use, I don't reach out to or accept the reachings out of many people, even though I'm aspiring to be an analyst and a commentator whom needs to network as much as any other aspiring and professional analyst-commentator needs to network.
Incidentally, while I believe that "to network" is a professionally-acceptable infinitive, and the conjugations thereof are professionally acceptable, I want someone to correct me if my belief is erroneous.

A Few Reasons That YouTube Needs To Restore Its Webcam-Upload Technology, Or In Short....

Some people literally used the YouTube webcam-upload technology to make their livings, or at least parts of their livings, sometimes even as YouTube partners. Other people used the YouTube webcam-upload technology to try to get their foots in the doors, and even others used the webcam-upload technology to open up their professional—and personal—worlds to others, and quite often to help others.

Examples include:


  1. Myself. I'm trying to get my foot in the door, help others, etc.—a number of videos talk about subjects that I cover in "The Real Stories"
  2. Guitar teacher and worship leader Daniel Choo—unless I speak out of turn and arrogance, I can reasonably ascertain that Daniel Choo had an easier time doing more-frequent covers when the webcam technology was available. By the way, I'm merely citing Daniel as an example.
  3. Greta van Susteren—unless I speak out of turn and arrogance, I can reasonably ascertain that even Great van Susteren had an easier time making more frequent "Gretawire" videos.
With one laywoman and two professionals being cases in point as to why YouTube was wrong to discontinue the use of its webcam-upload technology, the cited laywoman in question asks that you ask YouTube to restore a vital uploading means for everyone from the layperson whom doesn't have fancy studio- and on-location equipment, to the professional whom can increase the accessibility of his or her professional world

Originally On LinkedIn: The Injustice Of How Job Seekers Like Me Are Under the Radar Of Recruiters On LinkedIn(-Turned-Facebook?) | Nicole V. Czarnecki | LinkedIn

via Baker131313 on Wikimedia Commons


This issue reoccurs and reoccurs because of people whom use LinkedIn as another social-network link. Even today, someone who I'm following on LinkedIn had to ask someone else to "kindly refrain" from sharing a lewd and sexist photo on the "professional environment" that LinkedIn is supposed to be—and this person is already luckily in the workforce. As for people like me, the best that we can do is report that kind of content—and I was about to report the post until I saw the comment of whom I'm following. Needlessly to say, I liked the comment and did not feel the need to report the post once I could assent with a "Be professional" sentiment.
This doesn't change, however, that I majored in Political Science and paid attention in Political Research Methods 301 only to have my applications of my learning get entirely ignored while the LinkedIn abusers get commended. So much for the apparently-lazy Millennial stating this regarding a study about workaholism while professionals lazily abuse LinkedIn:
This is generalizable among and extrapolatable to only Norwegians. A study in a more-diverse country needs to be done.
I could be tempted to say that I wasted my time going to college since the LinkedIn misusers are wasting my and other aspiring professionals' time, anyway. Nonetheless, I can at least stand up at the end of the day and testify that the apparently-lazy Millennial had the integrity to at least try to go to college (which I did, and I graduated college with a B.A. in Political Science despite my Cerebral Palsy, mental illnesses, and other issues), the integrity and persistence to keep seeking a job despite that I'm a stigma with or without a college degree (since the sad reality is that those of us who have physical disabilities and mental illnesses are stigmas in of ourselves according to society, including the workforce whom deliberately looks us over and shuns us otherwise), and the integrity, persistence, and determination to find a job by using LinkedIn and other resources (including social media, such as Facebook and Blogger) appropriately (After all, e.g., Hadassa WordPress reached out to me when I was blogging with "The Times Of Israel"—and that's part of why I've had one book published so far, and I've not stated that I'm an aspiring author for nothing.).
I am—as others are—trying to use LinkedIn to meet professional goals, and I'd like to see those whom use LinkedIn to meet social-media goals go meet their social-media goals elsewhere and save LinkedIn for professional pursuits. 
PS Per the image above, via Baker131313 on Wikimedia Commons: the image fits because I have Depression; my aunt attempted suicide in my last year of college, and my estranged paternal grandfather died while I was studying for final-semester exams. Yet, here I am being paid only ~$25,000 in student debt and joblessness almost three years after graduation while LinkedIn abusers have jobs and money to cover their bills.

An Open Letter To Everyone Whom Has And/Or Could Harass And Bully Me For My Beliefs, Etc.

The non-underlined text is in regards to what prompted me to write this letter to a specific person. The underlined text is specific and general, as I have had others similarly harass and bully me in the past:

My belief in Yeshua is not relevant to the subject of homosexual acts as to how that the treated in the Torah, which is a common ground for both Messianic and Non-Messianic Jews. I even told a fellow Messianic that proselytizing is unacceptable and intolerable. Your attempt to embarrass me for my beliefs is a violation of the Facebook TOS as well as Torah.

Per the Facebook TOS alone:

1) "We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same.
You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes or violates someone else's rights or otherwise violates the law. 

"We can remove any content or information you post on Facebook if we believe that it violates this Statement or our policies."

2) "Posting things that don't follow the Facebook Community Standards (ex: threats, hate speech, graphic violence).

Using Facebook to bully, impersonate or harass anyone.

Abusing Facebook features (ex: sending friend requests to a lot of people you don't know). Overusing features could make other people feel uncomfortable or unsafe. As a result, we have limits in place to restrict the rate at which you can use features. Learn more about these limits." 

3) "We don’t tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow you to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but remove content that appears to purposefully target private individuals with the intention of degrading or shaming them. This content includes, but is not limited to: "

4) "Content that attacks people based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or disease is not allowed. We do, however, allow clear attempts at humor or satire that might otherwise be considered a possible threat or attack. This includes content that many people may find to be in bad taste (ex: jokes, stand-up comedy, popular song lyrics, etc.)." (What Facebook considers hate speech)


If you attempt to embarrass or shame me again, I will look into having charges for cyberbullying, hate crimes, and civil-rights violations pressed against you.

How Popular Is One's...

1) Identifying as a Messianic Jew on his or her Facebook profile—not to mention constantly making known his or her Messianic faith on Twitter, Blogger, etc.—especially when his or her ancestors were Anusim?

2) Staying a Christian after he or she has found out that he or she is Jewish, and even because he or she is Jewish—not to mention that saying that b'nei-Anusim who convert to Non-Messianic Judaism have fallen away—and not to mention refusing to make aliyah as a "Non Jew of Jewish descent" and wanting to even make aliyah "illegally" if he or she can?

3) Noting that Psalm 18 (מזמור חי\יח) prophesies Yeshua?

4) Calling out Michael Freund, Benjamin Netanyahu, Agudat Yisra'el and many other Haredim, etc?

5) Wearing tzitiyot techelet that haven't been dyed with chilazon?

6) Citing Da'at Emet and others who know what the Talmud really is?

7) Saying, e.g., "Yeshua, Hu gam l't'chiyah"?

8) Pointing out that HaNeged Mashiach (the One Against the Messiah) will be a Karaite, not a Muslim?



I could go on, but the point is that it's not popular. When my sister even wondered if I would convert to Non-Messianic Judaism ("I never know what's next with you.") just because I thought about going to a mikvah "just because" (since it is a part of my heritage), I asked her "How popular..."?

So, how popular is one's, e.g., identifying as a Messianic Jew publicly, especially when his or her ancestors were Anusim?...

Didn't think so! So, don't ever let anyone tell me that I might convert to Non-Messianic Judaism!

Ted Bauer, Insularity, and Industries—Including the Technology and News Industries

With dread about the electrical grid being struck and Luddite sentiment, Ted Bauer's article about the technology industry is relevant. After all, many industries indeed become like the technology industry—"insular", monopolized, hegemonic, nepotistic, and oligarchical. For example, where in the news-reporting world is one going to find a muckraker who's willing to expose many under-the-radar matters anymore? As has been noted in many different ways, many people want complacently-sensationalistic soundbites and graphics from "trusted" veteran reporters (whether or not they are actually trustworthy and willing to produce work that at least meets journalistic standards).

One example is with regard to PM Netanyahu, Congress, and the President of the United States. Very few reporters, analysts, commentators, and other news-connected figures would care to bring up, let alone report, that PM Netanyahu is actually violating Section Three of Article Two of the U.S. Constitution by addressing Congress without first having President Obama convene the House and/ore the Senator. When one commentator/analyst and one journalist (the former being Baruch Maoz and the latter being Geraldo Rivera) did bring that point up, they were sorely lambasted (Geraldo Rivera in particular and directly was lambasted. Anyone who concurred with Baruch Maoz was through whom the lambasters attempted to excoriate Pastor Maoz.).

The "report to support Netanyahu and Congress" line was expected to be toed. Never mind that the Constitution should have been brought into the reporting of PM Netanyahu's addressing Congress without being received by the President.

One Twitter Trend Which I Particularly Despise

Now I'm really beginning to resent that #followforfollow trend. As I've said, I don't do it (I follow who I want to follow); and I really resent those who unfollow me when I didn't even solicit their follow in the first place. They act like I played that follow-for-follow game and/or they usually unfollow me without even an explanation or a hint as to why.

I've had at least four people do it (I say "four" because four specific ones initially were on or came to the front of my mind.), and two of whom did so record. The one unfollowed me (today) pretty much as soon as he followed me (yesterday), and the other unfollowed me recently (as I found out). The two others unfollowed me a while ago.

Here's a trend for them (and others who treat other Tweeters as my unfollowers treated me): #unfollowforunfollow.

Why One Change.org Petition To Facebook Matters On July 4th

We still need 96% more of 1,000 people against racism, sexism, and other abusiveness on Facebook. 4% just doesn't fully cut it, especially on July 4th and when Facebook is an American company.

I would venture to say that Facebook would be embarrassed to realize that they're allowing themselves to eschew their own TOS, which partly read:

"Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition."

However, Facebook may be perfectly okay with eschewing this part of their TOS—and, thus, the American spirit (which is embodied in, e.g., "all men are created equal" [the "Declaration of Independence"] and "establish[ing] Justice, insur[ing] domestic Tranquility, provid[ing]  for the common defence, promot[ing]  the general Welfare, and secur[ing]  the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..." [Preamble of the U.S. Constitution]).

Nonetheless, we who are fellow Americans and/or users of the American social medium known as Facebook are not okay with Facebook eschewing their own TOS in any way, let alone in violating the American spirit in doing so.

Alright; Alright; The Proverbial Cat Is Out Of The Bag

I thought that I hid this from Twitter, Facebook, and Yahoo!, since I didn't want to get into trouble with or being disfavored by Geraldo Rivera or other people. Nonetheless, I did ask, "Do you think that Geraldo Rivera will retire this year?" Even last night, Johnny Dollar tweeted me:

  1. Tiny Klout Flag63johnny dollar ‏@johnnydollar01Feb 1
    Remember Geraldo said big news about his tv show coming ‘by week’s end’? That was 2 wks ago! Have you heard anything? I havent
  2. Tiny Klout Flag42N.V. Mara Czarnecki ‏@NickidewbearFeb 1
    Me neither. I wonder what's going on.
  3. Tiny Klout Flag63johnny dollar ‏@johnnydollar01Feb 1
    I don’t think his Saturday show has been on at all this year. Instead Red Eye and tonite a Hannity repeat. Odd.


    Reply to  
    Image will appear as a link
  4. Tiny Klout Flag42N.V. Mara Czarnecki ‏@NickidewbearFeb 1
    I agree.

Please note that I made unequivocally and absolutely clear, "I'm a fan of Geraldo. I'm just seeing that Geraldo's glory days could possibly be coming to a sad end. He will be 71 on July 4th, though; and his dad did sadly die at the age of 72 on Thanksgiving Day of 1987. So, Geraldo could be slowing down professionally in (God forbid) his final years. Also, he did eerily say that he has four more years left in him professionally speaking a while back."

Please especially take careful notes of the phrase "I'm a fan", "sad end", "sadly", "God forbid", and "eerily". I also did not vote on the poll myself. I hope that Geraldo lives to be 120 years old and has 50 more professional years, and even makes a comeback that I would envy—e.g., 504 "likes" on a picture during the Superbowl is good enough; and imagine how many likes he'd get if he made a full comeback!

One voter (not to mention that my sister has) even asked (as my sister has several times), "Who gives a crap?" (As my sister has asked it, "Who cares?") My response is, "I cares." or "I care. Aren't I somebody?" or "I care. Am I a nobody?" Besides, as one person stated on Geraldo's photo, "Geraldo, you deserve major cheers for the reporting you did on Willowbrook and the mistreatment of the mentally challenged. That's what I always will remember you for."

As I've said myself (even though Mom and Michelle try to convince me of otherwise), Geraldo kept me out of Willowbrook—I would've been in there for having Cerebral Palsy alone. The OCD/Anxiety, Depression, and ADD would've just been the proverbial icing on the proverbial cake of excuses for someone who would've wanted to put me in Willowbrook (e.g., Dad or Pop-Pop, and they would have made sure that the divorce-case judge ordered Mom to do that or give custody to Dad so that he could do that).

So, at risk of getting into trouble and incurring disfavor, I ask whether you think that Geraldo Rivera will (in my opinion, sadly) retire this year.

Script For Practice Job-Seeking Video

Hello; my name is Nicole V. Czarnecki. I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I graduated in December of 2013 with of a Bachelor of Arts degree in the field of Political Science, and I am seeking a career in the political or journalist field. Specifically, I desire to be a politics-and-news commentator and analyst. 

In full disclosure, I did not do as well in college as I could have done, and I have never had an internship. This is because I have Obsessive Compulsive/Generalized Anxiety, Major Depressive, and Attention Deficit Disorders, and Diplegic-Spastic/Mild Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy that required an Intravenous Baclofen Pump to improve. Nonetheless, what I lack in academic and professional experience is what I make up for in life experience, passion and conviction, and character.

I was born as a prematurely-born twin on January 23, 1990, and my twin and I were supposed to be born on April 22, 1990. Both my twin and I had complications due to our premature births, and my complications included a Category-Three brainbleed which effected me to have Cerebral Palsy. I was diagnosed with my form of Cerebral Palsy about a year and six months later.

I was in the hospital for 75 days—from January 23, 1990 to April 7th of the same year. I, according to what my doctors told my mother, was not supposed to ever walk, write, or catch up with my peers. I proved my doctors' suppositions wrong—I walked independently on May 26, 1994; I learned to write very well, and I finally caught up to my age cohorts after some time and earned my B.A. degree. Also, I stayed in line with my peers until after high school—my college years were some of my roughest years, and I came out of those years in one piece and with a fair amount of success.

I was raised by a divorced mother who has her own amazing life story, and I owe her more than the world—she helped me, for example, complete college and was with me during the difficult periods in my life. She stood by me and supported me  during, for instance, the first 75 days of my life—when I was in Saint Agnes Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit—, the fallout of her difficult divorce—which affected me, as a disabled child of divorce, profoundly—, and my Intravenous Baclofen Pump Surgery and recovery—which lasted from July 17, 2013 to August 2nd of the same. She also did the best that she could do in helping me deal with my abusive and otherwise-very-difficult dad.

Speaking of my dad, I also come from an interesting background on his side. On my paternal side, I am a bat-Anusim Ashkenazim—the daughter of Ashkenazi Crypto Jews. Because of this, I am very interested in Israeli and Jewish Diasporan matters—and I myself was born in the Jewish Diaspora, and plan to make aliyah if ever God wills that I should do so. I also am working on learning to speak fluent Hebrew—ani talmidah b'ivrit v'lomedet ivrit b'bayit.

Relatedly, one of my classes in my final semester at UMBC was Hebrew 101—and I did so well on the oral final, that my professor had "no comment" as to how I did. I also received an "A" in the class. Besides learning to speak Hebrew, I am also interested in learning about my family history—which, for a mispachah-Anusim, is quite an interesting one, as I have learned.

In that vein, I consider myself a Messianic Jew—I was baptized as a Roman Catholic, raised as an Episcopalian for the first 10 or 11 years of my life, became a Christian within those years, and went to a Presbyterian church and high school during the rest of my childhood years. I also began to suspect that I have Jewish heritage within the latter part of those years, and finding out about my Jewish heritage has only strengthened my Christian faith.

Because of my faith, I believe in having a good character. I believe in being as honest as possible—and, as people in my life have told, sometimes honest to a fault—, trustworthy, loving, kind, patient, forgiving, and all other manner of good. I also believe that my politics do reflect my worldview—for that reason, I am a conservative Republican (much to the chagrin of, for example, my late paternal granddad—who was one of the three IRS agents who served tax papers to then-President Nixon through President Nixon's attorneys—and my granddad was an ardently-liberal Democrat who did not like Republicans in any way, shape, form, circumstance, fashion or manner).

Speaking of my politics, I am volunteering on the campaign of a Howard County Executive candidate—namely, current Republican Maryland State Senator Allan H. Kittleman. I also blog about politics—among other matters—on my Blogspot blog, "The Nicole Factor." 

Relatedly, I can be found utilizing other social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, and—of course—YouTube. In fact, I have an About.Me page on which you can find out more about me. As you will see, I am quite savvy in utilizing social media.


In conclusion, I hope that you consider me worthy of being interviewed as your potential employee, and I hope that my qualifications, experience, and character will prove my worth. Thank you for your time and consideration of me.

"Brilliant or Tasteless?" (Title Linked To Original Post)

As hard as saying "tasteless" is, I have to say "tasteless". Also, as I said before, Hitler (Y'Sh) did have an abusive mother (and, might I add, an abusive stepdad), and that's what adds an element of tastlessness to it. Abuse begets abuse; hurt begets hurt, and evil begets evil. Some of the other most-vile people who ever lived were also subject to abuse by vile people (who were also probably abused). I can only hope that someone who has abused and/or is abusing a child suddenly has the thought that his or her child may turn out like (G-d forbid) Hitler (Y'Sh) and Stalin (Y'Sh). 

Abuse certainly doesn't excuse abuse, but abusers do affect abusees to be abusers in return if the abusees do not get what help they need. 
Also, some of the comments wishing that what happened in the commercial took place are actually against Tanakh. "As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways" (From Ezekiel 33:11). Meanwhile, while we're getting into counterfactuals, just imagine that someone could've saved Hitler (Y'Sh) from his abusive household and/or gotten him help--then what? Would the Holocaust have happened if a victim of abuse had not turned into a vile and ethnocidal totalitarian?
We're supposed to be about tikun ha'olam here, and wishing that an abuse victim had been killed when he was a child instead of wishing that he had gotten what help he needed is not in the spirit of tikun ha'olam.

My Second And final DateMySchool Profile, And...

I'm done with DateMySchool, but you can still look at my profile from it.

I have nothing to hide; I just had an Anti Messianic write to me, and I don't want to get myself or anyone else in trouble--and he wasn't looking to date me, by the way; he was just looking to be Anti Messianic and take issue with my statement that "I don't like when someone doesn't give their faith or their political view. What do you have to hide or be ashamed of?

He apparently doesn't mind Mohammedans, by the way--"Maybe they are actually Muslim and are scared they are gonna be called a terrorist"--, but he minds Jewish Christians. "Jewish Christian? [My reply follows.] Sorry, I don't count that as legitimate. It is vague, misleading, false. The Messiah has not come. [My reply follows. ] My favorite joke, "A guy walks into a bible store, asks the owner if he has the original because the sequels always suck". Jews for Jesus or whatever you are is false and misleading." [Then when I tried to follow his joke with "I'm guessing he was a KJV-only guy?", I replied too late--he blocked me before I refreshed the page, and before I could block him.

Either way, if nothing else, I hope that he doesn't get into trouble with his "rabbi" or his congregation for even writing to me in the first place--even if it was to be Anti Messianic toward me (Notice that I said "Anti Messianic", not "Anti Messiah"--Nehemia Gordon has left me scarred and having to make that clarification every time because of his verbal and spiritual abuse.).

Description

See http://www.about.me/nickidewbear. Meanwhile, I got invited here by "g" someone at UMBC (i.e., g**@umbc.edu)--I have no idea who he or she is, and I'm a little surprised that anyone would consider dating me--especially because I don't exactly fit anyone's mold, and I've already had two failed relationships (I've even had to call the police on both exes.).

Also, to be honest, I'm really not looking right now, and I'm fully and really waiting on G-d this time. I seriously believe 1 Corinthians 7:27--" Are you bound to a [spouse]? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a [spouse]? Do not seek a [spouse]." Waiting purely on G-d and not taking every opportunity is rough, but I speak from experience because of my two exes (See above.).

By the way, my former profile is at http://thenicolefactor.blogspot.com/2013/07/my-former-datemyschool-profile.html. Also, if you really think that we're the ones for each other for whatever reason, please:

a) Make sure that you have tested the spirits (cf., e.g., Deuteronomy 12:6, 13:1-4, 18:20-22; 2 Corinthians 11:1-15, 1 John 4). Satan can blasphemously disguise himself as even Yehovah's Holy Spirit!

b) Make sure that we're compatible in the first place (cf., e.g., Deuteronomy 22:9-11, Ecclesiastes 4:7-12, Proverbs 27:17, Luke 5:36-38, Mark 3:24-25, Romans 14:12-21, Philippians 2:1-3).

c) We can be like, e.g., Moses and Zipporah, Ruth and Boaz, and Priscilla and Aqulia (For more on the latter couple, see Acts 18, Romans 16:3-5, and 1 Corinthians 16:19-20).

What would be, so to speak, a bonus or a plus: if you're a fellow Jewish believer--up to a 1/16th Jewish is fine. See 1 Chronicles 7:14-15 and Galatians 4:22-25. Machir married back into Israel and set the cutoff by marrying the sister of Huppim (Hupham) and Shuppim (Muppim/Shephupham/Shephuphan/), and Isaac was the first Jew (since he was born of the promise). By the way, I have agonized over this to see how much Jewish counts as being Jewish (and I'm Patrilineally ["half"] Jewish--yay! Matrilineally Jewish is valid, too.).

By the way, unfortunately, you can understand where the Confederate/Southern and Nazi perverts (yemach shemam v'zichronam) got their "one drop" rules from--viz. they took something for good (to keep a line in and among Israel for as long as possible) and perverted it into an anti-miscegination rule--again, may the names and memories of the perverts be wiped out! Also, IFD, I'm not proud that I have Confederate ancestors.

Things I like such as movies, books, music, etc.

1)The Bible (I wish that I could list "Jewish/Messianic" or "Christian/Jewish Christian" as my faith.)
2) My culture (Ashkenazi Jewish. I was born in Baltimore, but consider Jerusalem [Yerusahalayim] my hometown.)
3) Blogging (See my about.me page.)
4) Politics (I'm graduating, G-d willing, in December 2013 with a B.A. in Political Science)
5) Genealogy and family history
6) General history
7) Honesty/Emet (One of my core values, and which includes full disclosure as appropriate)
8) Justice/Tzedek (Another core value)
9) The Hebrew and Yiddish languages (And I'm taking Hebrew 101 in the Fall 2013 semester.), and other languages (e.g., Spanish, de cual hablo un poco)
10) "Geraldo At Large" (I even had a major crush on Geraldo Rivera, which I admittedly let get me into trouble.) and other shows on FOX News
11) Social media (See my about.me page.)
12) Footnotes (which I clearly need the ability to use and add to this profile)

Things I DON'T like such as politicians, assignments, etc.

Anti Messianics ("Antimissionaries", "Countermissionaries"). You can't get any worse than to compare people like me to self haters like Hitler and George Soros, and the pogromists and other Anti Semites who proselytized my ancestors into converting. Besides, I had enough to deal with UMBC Hillel (and don't tell me that you're welcoming of all, including all Jews, if you can't stand Messianic or Patrilineal Jews). I also dislike political extremists (When G-d says to turn neither to the left nor to the right, He means it.). By the way, don't tell me that I have to keep all 613 mitzvot, either--I'm under the New Covenant, and the self righteous and political extremists (usually on the Far Right) are the ones telling me that I have to keep what Yeshua came to fulfill.

I (clearly) also dislike Self-Hating Jews and Anti Semites besides the ones who I mentioned above. Don't you dare, e.g., call me a "Khazar" or tell me that the Lemba, Bene Israel, Kaifeng Jews, and other Non Ashkenazim and Non Sephardim aren't Jews (One way to wrangle me is to pull that Ashkenazi and Sephardi Supremacism stuff--and I'd be remiss to not speak up for other Jews, especially because I'm also one of the kinds of Jews that PM Netanyahu, Ex-MK Avigdor Lieberman, Ovadiah Yosef, and their kind--as well as their Leftist and more-secularist counterparts--dislike.).

I further dislike other kinds of abusers (If you don't think that Anti Messianics and Anti Semites fall into one or more categories of abusive people, I suggest that you read "The Verbally Abusive Relationship".), racists and ethnocentrists (because, e.g., my mom is--as far as we know--mostly gentile [She is of Jewish descent, but she's still gentile.], so I'd be absolutely remiss to hold Jews above gentiles or vice versa), and people who are against disabled people (There has to be a separate category of abusive people for those who dislike the disabled.).

I also further dislike anyone who's here and already has a significant other. You're putting a temptation into your purview and risking your relationship (whatever kind of relationship it is--i.e., dating, engagement, or marriage). By the way, I was invited here and am not looking for a significant other, so you're ultimately only kidding yourself if you call me "a hypocrite"--as I stated, I seriously believe 1 Corinthians 7:27.

Please write me (or not) if...

1) If you like who I am. I mean, why else would you write (Unless, of course, you fit the "(Or not)" category; but you can stay away, then.)? BTW, some people think that I'm weird. Others get that I'm also aiming to promote my work outside of here--e.g., with that status update about that one Latvia supporter. After all, get used to the fact that you're looking at an at-least-aspiring commentator here, so you need to know what you're in for.

PS Again, if you really think that we're the ones for each other for whatever reason, please:

a) Make sure that you have tested the spirits (cf., e.g., Deuteronomy 12:6, 13:1-4, 18:20-22; 2 Corinthians 11:1-15, 1 John 4). Satan can blasphemously disguise himself as even Yehovah's Holy Spirit!

b) Make sure that we're compatible in the first place (cf., e.g., Deuteronomy 22:9-11, Ecclesiastes 4:7-12, Proverbs 27:17, Luke 5:36-38, Mark 3:24-25, Romans 14:12-21, Philippians 2:1-3).

c) We can be like, e.g., Moses and Zipporah, Ruth and Boaz, and Priscilla and Aqulia (For more on the latter couple, see Acts 18, Romans 16:3-5, and 1 Corinthians 16:19-20).

What would be, so to speak, a bonus or a plus: if you're a fellow Jewish believer--up to a 1/16th Jewish is fine. See 1 Chronicles 7:14-15 and Galatians 4:22-25. Machir married back into Israel and set the cutoff by marrying the sister of Huppim (Hupham) and Shuppim (Muppim/Shephupham/Shephuphan/), and Isaac was the first Jew (since he was born of the promise). By the way, I have agonized over this to see how much Jewish counts as being Jewish (and I'm Patrilineally ["half"] Jewish--yay! Matrilineally Jewish is valid, too.).



2) (Or not):

You fit the "Things [That I And People Who] I DON'T like" criteria above.

BTW, someone already did that--if you don't consider my faith legitimate, e.g., don't write. I'm not willing to waste your or my time, and I'm not willing that you waste your or my time. So, think before you make your decision as to whether or not to write to me.

Especially don't write to me if you're Non-Messianic Jewish--I want to save both of us trouble. The CCAR Resolution 150 (Vol. XCI, 1981, p. 67-69) does not allow you that even consider me as a potential partner. The USCJ has an applicable resolution, "Missionaries and Cults (1993)". The OU and Karaite Judaism would interpret, e.g., Deuteronomy 7:1-5 as a no-intermarriage clause for Non-Messianic and Messianic Jews. Reconstructionist Judaism doesn't have an applicable one as far as I can tell.
