That's odd, you are on my "jury blacklist" and wouldn't be called to jury for one of my posts!

Is Jordan Peterson Enabling Jew Hatred?

Editor’s Note, May 14, 1:08 p.m.: The original version of this article featured an illustration juxtaposing Jordan Peterson’s image with that of Hitler. In the eyes of many, the art equated Peterson and Hitler, which was not our intent. We were trying to convey Peterson’s intellectual interest in the phenomena of Hitler and the Holocaust. We apologize for the error.

Jordan Peterson is a public intellectual adored by neo-Nazis, white supremacists and conspiracy theorists. The neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer called Peterson, a Canadian psychology professor-turned-self-help-guru, “The Savior of Western Civilization.” Paul Joseph Watson, a prominent conspiracy theorist for Infowars, has tweeted, “Jordan Peterson for Canadian Prime Minister.”

Part of why people on the far right like Peterson is because he is not afraid to talk about the Jews, and he has a lot of people to talk to. Peterson is on a 50-city tour of North America and Europe to promote his best-selling new book, “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.” His YouTube channel has over a million subscribers. He has answered questions about global Jewish influence several times, in person and online. In an April blog post, he attributed that alleged influence to Jewish intelligence — an old anti-Semitic dog whistle.

Yet Peterson rarely speaks about anti-Semitism itself, even though he says he’s been obsessed with the Holocaust since he was a teenager and lectures on it frequently. Critics say this omission may encourage anti-Semitism among Peterson’s followers, who range from avowed neo-Nazi communities like the Daily Stormer to frustrated young men looking for a scapegoat. In an interview, Peterson told the Forward he feels that he is battling anti-Semitism through his work.

“Part of your responsibility when you have a platform like that, especially when you present yourself as an academic, is to make sure that you’re giving those audiences the full truth,” said Jared Holt, a researcher for People for the American Way who studies far-right media. If Peterson were to be more forthcoming about the importance of anti-Semitism in the Holocaust, it “might allow some of his viewers to think about course correcting,” Holt added.

The Trump admin. Is a scandal in motion. He won't be on the ballot come 2020,/make book on it.

Did Pompeo lie during his confirmation hearing or just inempt?

On Monday evening, the White House released a statement saying that Netanyahu's information is "consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people."

But that assessment flies in the face of the current U.S. intelligence consensus about Iran’s nuclear program, reiterated as recently as April 12 by Mike Pompeo, then the CIA director, at his confirmation hearing for secretary of state.

Asked if he had any evidence to dispute the International Atomic Energy Agency's finding in March that Iran was complying with the 2015 nuclear deal, Pompeo said, "With the information I've been provided, I've seen no evidence that they are not in compliance today."

Meanwhile, two U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence assessment told NBC News that there is no evidence that Iran is cheating on the agreement.
