1930'S REDUX. COVERING UP GENOCIDE (THIS TIME, TIBET) AGAIN.

1930'S REDUX. COVERING UP GENOCIDE (THIS TIME, TIBET) AGAIN.
COVERING UP FOR THE MOB (AND HILLARY CLINTON) IN "THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF STATEN ISLAND".
THE POLITICIANS, THE MEDIA AND THE "HOUSES OF WORSHIP" !
HILLARY CLINTON'S AND CHRISTINE QUINN'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY MACHINE "UNHOLY TRINITY" OF STATEN ISLAND.
"DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN."

    During the 1930's The New York Times was only the most prominent newspaper suppressing very reliable reports that the Nazis were embarking on a Genocide against the Jews. There were enough anti-Semitic Hitler sympathizers in President Franklin Roosevelt's government and in prominent business (Henry Ford) and celebrity (Walt Disney, Charles Lindberg, et. al.) positions to convince millions of Americans that Hitler was okay and that, at any rate, he was an anti-Communist. Plenty of American corporations were doing business with Nazi Germany, in some cases developing products used to mass murder Jews. It was "Kristallnacht", the mass pogrom throughout Germany and Austria involving organized violence against Jews, the synagogues, the businesses, etc. in Germany and Austria, that somewhat exposed the coverup. And it was the 1939 Nazi Hitler/Communist Stalin "Non-aggression Pact" that immediately led to the simultaneous German and Soviet invasions of Poland on September 1, 1939 that started World War II, by which time the mass murder of the Jews had already begun.
   According to the Dalai Lama of Tibet, well over 1 million Tibetans have died as a direct consequence of the Chinese Communist occupation of formerly independent Tibet. Tibet - about 2000 years ago the home to eastbound traveler Jesus (aka "Issa") Christ during his "Missing Years" - with its relatively high numbers of monk and nun celibates and very challenging Himalayan location, is a sparsely populated country of about 6 million. If you kill1/6th of a nation and ethnically cleanse the rest that is Genocide. Extrapolated proportionally to the U.S, with a population of around 300 million, there would be 60 million deaths.
  A great many people who diplomatically acknowledge that China is guilty of "human rights violations" against the Tibetans, go into denial about the fact that China is committing Genocide.
  Tibet is governed by a totalitarian regime made up of light-complexioned Han Chinese, who view the racially, ethnically, culturally and linguistically distinct Tibetans as inferior. A Chinese military report that I've seen refers to the estimated 70,000 Tibetans who were gunned down with in a few days as the Chinese military crushed a Tibetan uprising in March,1959 as "insects." That uprising is memorialized annually on March 10, Tibetan Liberation Day, when rallies are held in cities throughout the world - but definitely not in Communist China. I have attended the NYC March 10 demonstrations often - and in fact some years ago I delivered U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler's (D.-N.Y.) free Tibet speech. Among the more popular protest and T-shirt signs read "End the Genocide Now" and "Tibet is NOT part of China", the answer to China's (and Obama's) spurious claim that Tibet is part of China. (Is that what Obama learned at Columbia and Harvard?)
  While there is some mainstream media coverage of Tibet, as far as I am aware, the only newspaper referencing the fact of "Genocide" in Tibet is UP FRONT News.
  As far as I am aware the only newspaper, mainstream or so-called "alternative" reporting the facts of Bill and Hillary Clintons' direct involvement in the political and media coverup of the Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet is UP FRONT News. Visit www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspot.com and learn the details of how I got the gruesome facts of the atrocities committed by the Chinese authorities against Tibetan monks and nuns personally to President-elect Bill Clinton in December, 1992 via his secretary Betty M. Currie (who years later received unwanted notoriety year later during the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky reality show). Clinton & Co,. responded by having me arrested when I showed up in the U.S. Capitol with my invitation to attend the January 19, 1993 (day before Bill Clinton's inauguration) hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Clinton's nomination of Warren Christopher to be Secretary of State.
  Only in UP FRONT News will you find the details of Hillary Clinton's war against me, waged directly and via surrogates such as her pal NYS Senator Diane Savino (D.- Staten Island/Bklyn.), whose Chief of Staff, a full fledged psychopath named Robert Cataldo, literally terrorized when I was a candidate for the U.S. Senate against Mrs. Clinton. Cataldo's absolutely frightening attack on me is documented as "criminal harassment" in NYPD complaint #2006-120-8244.  And I later was not at all surprised to learn from the evidently independent-minded Staten Island Democratic  leader (and President of the Council of Jewish Organizations of Staten Island) Mendy Mirocznik that Mr. Cataldo is a "Member of the Sicilian Mob", better known as the Mafia.
  The "newspaper" that has more information on the all the details - i.e. the Genocide, the Clinton coverup, the Savino/Mobster attempt to intimidate me, etc. - is the Staten Island Advance, a classic example of how the billionaires are violating the Bill of Rights and thereby undermining democracy, inasmuch as the paper is owned by an arrogant multibillionaire named Donald Newhouse. As far as I am aware, there is probably no newspaper in New York and perhaps America more guilty of covering up political corruption and practicing political news suppression, censorship and false reporting (e.g. about me) than the Staten Island Advance. Editor-in-Chief Brian Laline, political reporters Tom Wrobleski and Rachel Shapiro are arguably the three most dishonest, corrupt political "journalists" in New York and perhaps America.
  Many African-Americans understandably ignore the Advance, which has been described by Rev. Demetrius Carolina of the First Central Baptist Church in S.I. as "controlled", and by political activist Kelvin Alexander as "racist." Rev. Agnes McBeth, a potential voice of political independence at the Diane Savino-connected autocratically run St. Philips ("No Apostrophe") Baptist Church in S.I., once told me she simply doesn't read the Staten Island Advance. Rabbi Gerald Sussman of Temple Emanu-el admits to reading that paper but seems to have a low regard for its political reporting as he has told me that the Advance would cover a cat caught in a tree as a major political expose.
 When it comes to political censorship and slanted reporting the multi-billionaire Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post may run a close second to the Advance.
 When a journalist asks for information for a story and receives the information and then does not respond, that is indicative of news suppression. With some assistance from my (former) publicist Frank De Luca, I've spoken at some length by phone with Keith Kelly, who writes the "Media Ink" column for the New York Post and does critical coverage of other newspapers. Keith Kelly tends to lacerate papers such as The NY Times and the Daily News, which, by New York Post standards, are left-wing. Mr. Kelly and I discussed news censorship at the S.I. Advance over the phone. He asked me for more information; I sent him several emails. No reply.
 Back in the 1970's I blew the whistle on the political coverup of budget cut-caused patient deaths at NYC-operated Queens Hospital Center, where I was employed as a social worker and was an elected member of the QHC Community Advisory Board. Among the politicians involved in the coverup was the reactionary Democrat Mayor Ed Koch, a favorite of the reactionary NY Post. The NY Post killed the story. Newsday on the other hand employed an investigative journalist/editor named Dennis Duggan, who assigned reporter Joseph Treen to interview me and I wound up on the front page as the coverup was broken.
  Then I was talking and writing about the coverup of the politically caused deaths of patients in a hospital run by the government of the City of New York.
  Now I am talking about a Genocide against an entire nation and its people!
  In 2005-06 I ran for the U.S. Senate against then incumbent Hillary Clinton, visit www.tomweissdemocratforussenate.blogspot.com, (my candidacy leading to mobster Robert Cataldo's attack on me - NYPD complaint # 2006-120-8244, reported by me in full to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and to the FBI). In 2015 I decided to run for congress in the special election in the 11th congressional district (all of Staten Island and several Brooklyn neighborhoods) because neither the Democratic Party machine candidate nor the Republican would discuss the political coverup of the police killing of Eric Garner and related abuse by police matters and also the Tibet and other issues, such as the gentrification of North Shore Staten Island.
  This time the retaliation came from what to me was an unanticipated source - a house of worship. The previous year I had become a member of the largely African-American St. Philips Baptist Church in the ethnically diverse neighborhood of Port Richmond on Staten Island's North Shore. Autobiographically my first church was the largely African-American Ebenezer Baptist Church in Flushing, Queens led by Dr. Martin Luther King's close friend Rev. Dr. Timothy P. Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell was an UP FRONT News reader and went on record during my interview with him for an article I wrote for the (no longer published) Downtown Magazine as denouncing Communist China for its attack on the Tibetans' "faith" and committing "Genocide" in Tibet.
 Things at St. Philips went very well as I attended the services led by Pastor Rev. Dr. Tony Baker and also the Bible classes taught by Assistant Pastor Rev. Agnes McBeth, who used as her textbook excerpts from Obery Hendrick's book, "The Politics of Jesus: Rediscovery of the True Revolutionary Nature of Jesus' Teachings and How They Have Been Corrupted", which emphasizes Jesus' work as a radical rabbi under the rule of Rome and the collaborating Jewish Pharisees.
 It was a not too many days after I announced my candidacy for Congress in 2015 that I encountered the first of what became a series of hostilities from none other than St. Philips Deacon John McBeth, Rev. Agnes McBeth's husband. John McBeth is very active in the Democratic Party machine in Staten Island. He is a member of the largely African-American Staten Island Political Action Club (SIPAC). Rev. Baker, who a few years ago was briefly a candidate for the NYC Council for the seat now occupied by Debi Rose, is a close friend of Sen. Savino and knows all the details of Mafioso Robert Cataldo's attack on me and also knows Cataldo very personally as, according to "Rev. Agnes", he presided over Cataldo's wedding. 
  John McBeth organized and participated in a number of political events during the campaign involving the candidates and saw fit to exclude me. Baker refused to allow me to speak about my candidacy at the Church although he gave the Democratic machine candidate that opportunity on several occasions. John McBeth's pal, machine Democrat, John Mancuso, who some years ago threatened me at a Mount Manresa protest, literally physically pushed me at a John McBeth-organized political event. Shortly after I encountered the John McBeth/John Mancuso duo at a candidates forum in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, I was confronted by a couple of cops who ordered me to leave. Yeah, very coincidental
   Rev. Baker, who seems to manifest Papal delusions of "infallibility", rebuffed an email from my UP FRONT News associate Andrew Mazzone to meet to resolve the problems. On Palm Sunday, 2015 John McBeth blatantly disrespected me and UFN staffer Steven Gradman who had traveled to St. Philips by refusing to meet with us after the service to resolve the problems.
 I sent several text messages to Rev. Agnes to try to arrange a meeting. In response to a text message I had sent to Rev. Agnes, which referenced a famous patriotic song, "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition", Rev. Baker had her reply with a paranoid message accusing me of making a "threat" and threatening to have me arrested if I sent any emails or text messages to Church staff.
 Earlier this year at my request Mr. Gradman called Rev. Agnes, who agreed to speak with me over the phone. She and I had a very conciliatory conversation and I subsequently attended a couple of services without incident. The armistice ended abruptly on March 23 when I attended an Easter Week Holy Thursday event at St. Philips memorializing Jesus's arrest leading to His Trial and the Crucifixion. After the event as I attempted to give guest Rev. Carolina a copy of one of my UFN articles I was physically attacked by Tony Baker and a few minutes later by NFL tackle physiqued Church official, who is under the impression that it is okay to bellow "The F Word" in Church.
  The "mobbed up" Senator Diane Savino, a member of the New York State Legislature, which has correctly been labeled by the NYU Brennan Institute of Justice as "the worst state legislature in the country", is probably the most politically powerful of the Democratic Party's "Unholy Trinity of Staten Island." She's pals with Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo (the guy who killed the corruption-investigating Moreland Commission) and the insufferably arrogant ex-NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who asphyxiated 2008 NYC Council Resolution #1299 proposed by me and introduced by then NYC Council member (and now NYS Senator) Tony Avella (D.-Queens), which called for the removal of the 2008 Olympic Games from China because of China's brutal and illegal occupation of Tibet.
   Savino's close pal is NYS Assembly member Matthew ("No Saint") Titone, who, at least in his dealings with me, tends to lie. He willfully botched an important constituent matter involving my health. He disrespected NYPD Sgt. Det. Al Fiore by blowing off a scheduled appointment with the detective and me on some political law enforcement matters and is one of the very few politicians to praise the legendarily corrupt ex-NYS Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver after Silver's conviction. Titone, who replaced an Assemblyman who died in office, was essentially anointed as an Assemblyman by then Mayoral wannabe Quinn who, citing the fact that at the time Staten Island was the only borough without an openly gay elected official, needed a compliant gay in S.I. I am 100% for gay rights and Matthew Titone is a "Gay Wrong."
   I first met African-American Debi Rose some years ago at a town hall meeting at the Rev. Carolina's largely African-American First Central Baptist Church in my neighborhood of acutely gentrification-threatened Stapleton on Staten Island's North Shore (aka in UFN as "NoSho"). Her popular establishment-challenging populist rhetoric was convincing and I supported her when she ran for the NYC Council in 2009. I will keep in mind The Who's rock 'n' roll warning "Don't Get Fooled Again" should Democratic Party machine hack Debi Rose seek (s)elective office again. Ms. Rose's closest political advisor for years has been the explosive David Jones. In his other lives David Jones is a jazz pianist and also - as described by another member of the Staten Island Democratic Party machine, Roy Moskowitz (who is a beneficiary of the patronage mill run by Matthew Titone) - an "Israel basher." Jones is a member of  Peace Action of Staten Island (PASI), whose past president was Jones's wife Sally. The PASI propaganda mill, pretty much run by Jones and the late self-described "green anarchist" and explosive Mike May, consistently demonized Israel, frequently depicting the "lets wipe Israel off the face of the earth" torture-practicing gay-executing Iranian dictatorship as a beacon of peace. Moskowitz, who qualifies as a professional "liberal", is a practitioner of political euphemisms. David Jones, who has explicitly threatened me with violence on several occasions and at a candidates forum several years ago attempted to assault me, is a full-fledged anti-Semite - and a member of the corruption riddled Staten Island Democratic Association (SIDA, but not to be confused with the Spanish acronym for AIDS). To suggest that David Jones is merely an "Israel basher" is analogous to assert that Adolf Hitler had a mild dislike for Jewish people. David Jones has also been indicted for "grand larceny" in connection with his campaign finance activities as Ms. Rose's 2009 campaign manager. David Jones is a pal of St. Philips Baptist Church Deacon John McBeth. Agnes McBeth can presumably speak for herself.
  Roy Moskowitz is one of a bunch of observant politically active Jews in Staten Island fully knowledgeable about the Bill and Hillary Clinton direct involvement in the political coverup of the Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet. As noted, as far as I am aware, Moskowitz, perhaps warding off winding up on food stamps, also derives a paycheck from the corrupt Matthew Titone. Mr. Moskowitz is also fully knowledgeable that one of his Democratic Party colleagues, Robert Cataldo, is an at least episodically psychotic individual and an identified terrorist (defined as a person who uses violence/threats/intimidation for political purposes) and an identified member of the Mafia. As far as I am aware, Roy Moskowitz, who will presumably wax progressive about any Republican, has remained politically catatonic about Cataldo.
  Democrat Rabbi Gerald Sussman, of Temple Emanu-el in Port Richmond, S.I, a few blocks south of St. Philips Baptist Church, is one of the most truly humanitarian people I know. His Temple is the home of the Council of Jewish Organizations of S.I. (COJOSI) food pantry. He is the Chairman of the Board of Project Hospitality, a "non-profit" with the mission of helping the poor and the homeless. In fact, however, the Rabbi has been less than vigilant in looking into major incompetences and misconducts by PH staff, which have been systematically covered up by the very politically entrenched PH CEO Rev. Terry Troia. At my request he wrote an ultimately helpful letter for me to the top NYC and NYS officials when a NYC Human Resources bureaucrat mishandled my food stamp recertification application resulting in the closing of my case. (I would have gotten zero help from "The Unholy Trinity" of Savino/Titone/Rose.)
 Rabbi Sussman is a prominent community leader and a well-known member of COJOSI, of which Mendy Mirocznik, who blew Mafioso Robert Cataldo's cover, is the president. I have asked Rabbi Sussman - who makes few if any political decisions without the approval of his wife Boni, who is definitely to his right politically - to publicly call for at least a Democratic Party investigation of the Savino/Cataldo/Mafia NYPD. Stating that, inasmuch as he did not personally witness Cataldo's attack on me (no one witnessed it, inasmuch as Cataldo, anticipating my scheduled arrival at Ms. Savino's district office in S.I. for my appointment with him on an urgent constituent matter warranting Ms. Savino's intervention when I was homeless, had emptied her office of all staff, Mafia-style), he was not in a position to call for an investigation.
  Very ironically that is precisely the twisted "logic" used by Holocaust deniers, who, correctly asserting that they did not personally witness the murders, etc. of the Jews by the Nazis, question the veracity of Holocaust accounts. Rabbi Sussman is often quite eloquent in denouncing the crimes of Hamas/Hezbollah/ISIS, et. al. terrorists who kill Jews, those murders not personally witnessed by the Rabbi. Does Rabbi Sussman believe that Mendy Mirocznik and I are fictionalizing? I doubt it.
  Needless to say, it is my responsibility to fully cooperate with the FBI and all law enforcement agencies investigating identified Mafioso Robert Cataldo, his protectors such as Diane Savino as far as it goes - up to and including the Clintons. Political crimes are always followed by coverups.There is no question in my mind that Robert Cataldo belongs behind bars - in a secure penal facility with solid psychiatric services.
  Other political folks in what I call "The Jew Wall of Silence" include SIDA and Temple Emanu-el members Gary Carsel (twice very understandably landslide-defeated for the NYS Senate by Republican Andrew Lanza) and his wife Ann Taylor. I don't know the Hebrew or Yiddish words for "omerta."
  And the silence on the Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet is - proverbially and metaphorically - deafening.
  Yogi Berra's terse commentaries generally focused on less than serious subjects - as when he commented on a bar that "No one goes there; it's too crowded."
   In consideration of the long covered up racist Nazi Genocide against the Jews and the ongoing covered up Chinese Communist racist Genocide against the Tibetans, as Yogi might put it, it's "Deja vu all over again."

ANOTHER UP FRONT NEWS EXCLUSIVE! WHAT MANY OF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ANOTHER UP FRONT NEWS EXCLUSIVE!
WHAT MANY OF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON.
HILLARY VS. TIBET;
HILLARY & THE STATEN ISLAND MOB.
AND NOW THE U.S. SENATE AND THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES (AND THE MEDIA) KNOW.

VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON? NO!
VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP? NO!
THIS TIME A "THIRD PARTY" MAKES SENSE!
VOTE FOR BERNIE SANDERS (AND GREEN JILL STEIN)?  IF POSSIBLE, YES.

    The established mainstream and so called "alternative" media have been known to withhold and indeed suppress important political news, such as the fact that Communist China is perpetrating Genocide in the formerly independent nation of Tibet and that Bill and Hillary Clinton are directly covering up that fact because of their lucrative relationship with the corporations that comprise the China Lobby and that, because I have exposed this coverup in my political campaigns (e.g.  against Hillary for the U.S. Senate in 2005-06 ((www.tomweissdemocratforussenate.blogspot.com) and in UP FRONT News, the Clintons have directly and via surrogates -  e.g. "mobbed up" NYS Senator Diane Savino (D.-Staten Island/Bklyn.) and identified Mafioso Robert Cataldo - criminally violated my civil rights.
   The New York Times (e.g. Maureen Dowd/Alex Thompson), the Daily News (John Marzulli), the New York Post (Keith Kelly, Fred Dicker), WBAI-FM, the Staten Island Advance (Editor-in-Chief Brian Laline, reporters Tom Wrobleski, Rachel Shapiro, Kiwana Rich, Marj Hack, Publisher Caroline Diamond Harrison, owner Donald Newhouse and other print and broadcast media in New York and Washington, D.C., have the facts. One political reporter at Newsday (a paper with a good history over the years, of reporting on my political stories, e.g. when I blew the whistle on the political coverup of budget cut-caused patient deaths at NYC- operated Queens Hospital Center when other papers have suppressed the facts) has expressed interest.
  Also as far as I am aware, unreported in the mainstream and "alternative" media is that fact that, on May 21, 2015 in reply to my communications, Senator Bernard Sanders announced his support for "self-determination for the Tibetan people." Hillary's position on the very other hand can be summarized as "self-determination for the China Lobby and for Goldman-Sachs."
  And now that Hillary Clinton, aided and abetted by Democratic National Committee Chairlady Debbie Wasserman Schultz (who has been made fully aware by me of the Mafia-linked corruption in the Democratic Party in "The People's Republic of Staten Island," and has done absolutely nothing) is at least trying to rhetorically waterboard Bernie Sanders into surrendering and ending his campaign for the presidency and bullying his supporters, I decided to make another trip to Washington, D.C.
   I visited the following offices and in each case spoke at some length with legislative staffers: Sen. Bernard Sanders (I.-Vt.) Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.), Jeff Merkley (D.-Oreg.), Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.), Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R.-Fla.), U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.), U.S. Representative Chris Smith (R.-N.J.) and staff at the Congressional Executive Commission on China (CECC.gov), chaired by Sen. Rubio and Representative Smith. (I have met on several occasions with CECC Staff Director Paul Protic, a Smith appointee, and with Rubio appointee Deputy Director Elyse Anderson. I've also briefly met Mr. Rubio and Mr. Smith, both very strong supporters of Tibet.)
  Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren (whom I met at one of her standing room only book signings at the Union Square, Manhattan Barnes & Noble), Mr. Rubio, Mr. Smith Mr. Nadler (my former congressman) and CECC staff have been UP FRONT News readers for some time and I am glad to add Senators Reid and McConnell to the UFN circulation list.
  All of the above are also in receipt of the UP FRONT News newsbreak, reporting that Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, to whom I email-suggested last October 2, that the Greens endorse Bernie for president, has agreed to call upon the Greens to endorse him if the becomes the Democratic Party nominee or, if Hillary succeeds in "superdelegating" her way to the Democratic Party nomination, to "slide" to become the Green's vice-presidential nominee with Bernie at the top of the ticket. 
  As for myself, as I recently suggested in an email to Bernie Sanders Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver and his New York Campaign Counsel Arthur Schwartz (who is running for the NYS Assembly in Manhattan challenging Machine Democrat Hillary backer Deborah Glick), "The chances of my voting for Donald Trump in November are zero. The chances of my voting for Hillary Clinton are below zero."

THE MAIN ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION: INTEGRITY. THE CLINTONS LIE, E.G.TO (AND ABOUT) ME. THE STATEN ISLAND FACTOR. THE TIBET FACTOR. BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT!

THE MAIN ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION: INTEGRITY. THE CLINTONS LIE, E.G.TO (AND ABOUT) ME. THE STATEN ISLAND FACTOR. THE TIBET FACTOR. 
BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT!
 Some weeks ago after several primaries, won easily by Donald Trump for the Republicans and "won" very uneasily by Republicrat Hillary Clinton for the Democrats, voters were asked to rate the (at the time) five remaining candidates for the presidency, Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and Republicans Donald Trump, John Kasich and Ted Cruz, as to the least trustworthy. The candidate with the highest percentage of "least trustworthy" responses was Hillary Clinton. In second place was Donald Trump. The candidate with the least number of "least trustworthy" responses was Bernie Sanders.
 Polls are never 100% accurate; at the same time, they are rarely very wrong. And so America is faced with the possibility of a "choice" between two people who lie a lot.  and we consider ourselves a politically advanced "democracy." (DeMOCKracy?)
 There is no question that, his "democratic socialism" notwithstanding, Bernie Sanders' emergence into a very "electable" presidential candidate has a lot to do with the fact that, no matter how far Hillary opportunistically and rhetorically "left" tilts, a majority of the voters, Democratic and Republican, do not trust her.
  I am one of them.
  Her decision to secretly privatize many of her State Department emails, including those relating to the "didn't have to happen" Benghazi disaster, only to have her account penetrated by a Romanian hacker, reveals how sneaky Hillary Clinton is. That is now an FBI matter.
  Of course when it comes to sneakiness and lying, Bill Clinton challenges such Republicans as George W. Bush and Big Dick Cheney for the Liars Gold Medal.
  As a steadily increasing number of voters, including the also steadily increasing numbers of UP FRONT News readers, are learning, Bill and Hillary Clinton's secrecy, dishonesty and willingness to resort to crime have been used against me as part of their direct involvement in something much bigger human rights wise than Bill's philandering and Hillary's email shenanigans. It involves Genocide!
  Since 1992 first Bill and then Bill & Hillary have been involved in covering up the ongoing Chinese Communist racist genocide against the people and nation of formerly independent Tibet. Given the fact that the mainstream and so-called "alternative" media reporting on China-occupied Tibet is rare and less than thorough (there was little reporting anywhere on condition inside the Nazi concentration camps, in one of history's most horrendous coverups) the best and most consistent reporting is to be found in UP FRONT News online at www.tomsupfrongtnews.blogspot.com. The worst "reporting" is in the multibillionaire Donald Newhouse-owned Staten Island Advance, ironically based in New York City, certainly the "media capital of the world."
 Thanks in part to the history of political news suppression and corruption protection that characterizes political "journalism" at the S.I. Advance, New York City's "forgotten borough" is also the city's most corrupt borough. It is also the borough where the dictatorially controlled Tammany Hall-style Democratic Party machine is tied to the Hillary machine and does not tolerate dissidents - such as me.
  Staten Island may be the only jurisdiction anywhere in the U.S. with a state senator, Hillary pal Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.), whose Chief of Staff is, at least episodically, a psychotic lunatic and who has been identified by the independent minded Staten Island Democratic Party official Mendy Mirocznik as "a member of the Sicilian mob." It was while I was an announced Democratic write-in candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2005-06 against then incumbent Hillary Clinton that, at my scheduled appointment with Mr. Cataldo on an urgent constituent matter when I was in fact still homeless, Cataldo, in a room that he had already emptied of potential witnesses, went berserk and literally terrorized me for several minutes. (It's documented in NYPD Complaint # 2006-120-8244, fully reported to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the  FBI.) Inasmuch as Robert Cataldo, anticipating my arrival for my scheduled appointment with him, had made certain that there would be no witnesses I have long suspected the Mob factor. Thank you to Mr. Mirocznik, who is also the outspoken President of the Council of Jewish Organizations of S.I. Other Jewish leaders in Staten Island have made the morally indefensible mistake of remaining silent. They need to revisit the words of Protestant anti-Nazi Martin Niemoller.
 It is very relevant to point out here that among Savino's close pals is Rev. Dr. Tony Baker of the largely African-American St. Philips ("No Apostrophe") Baptist Church in Port Richmond, which I made the innocent mistake of joining in 2014. Rev. Baker - who unlike other clergy such as Rabbi Gerald Sussman of Temple Emanu-el, also I n Port Richmond and the very political Rev. Dr. Demetrius S. Carolina of the largely African-American First Central Baptist Church, who have called for independence for Tibet, has remained stone silent on that issue - subscribes to the Savino/Cataldo school of NFL-style politics, as he physically attacked me at a recent Easter event I attended at his Church. Perhaps that is not surprising in a Church with a deacon, John ("Praise the Lord" - and Pass the Ammunition) McBeth, a charter member of the corrupt Staten Island Democratic Party machine, who, with obvious  political motives, has harassed me on multiple occasions. Sadly the otherwise human rights-sensitive Assistant Pastor Rev. Agnes McBeth (Deacon John's wife) has decided to play the role of obedient soldier in the St. Philips/Savino/Cataldo Democratic Party Machine.
  The folks at St. Philips preach a lot about Jesus but remain stone silent about the massive religious persecutions perpetrated by the Chinese Communists occupying a nation, i.e.Tibet, in which Jesus Himself was a resident about 2000 years ago.

Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet: A Recruxifiction" and "The Lost Years of Jesus" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet.)
  President-elect Bill Clinton, imminent Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Clinton Administration Communications Chief George Stephanopoulos were made personally and directly aware by me of the genocidal atrocities committed by the Chinese in Tibet in December, 1992 via my telephone conversations and faxed correspondence with Bill Clinton's secretary Betty M. Currie (better known to the public as the unwilling communications link between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski) and with Mr. Stephanopoulos's secretary, Amanda. The Clinton/Christopher/Stephanopoulos political loyalty however was, and is, to the mega-corporate Wall Street-entrenched China Lobby, which profits massively from its investments in the fascistic "Communist" slave state known as The People's Republic of China.
  I am certain that Clinton/Christopher/Stephanopoulos can explain why, on January 19, 1993 the day before Bill Clinton's first inauguration, I was arrested in the reception area of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in the U.S. Capitol with my invitation to attend that day's Committee hearing on President-elect Clinton's nomination of Mr. Christopher to be Secretary of State.
  And maybe Hillary Clinton can answer reporters' questions regarding her communications about me with her pal Diane Savino concerning my decision to run against her for the U.S. Senate in 2005-06, reported in both mainstream and "alternative" print and broadcast media, and the information in my campaign literature online at www.tomweissdemocratforussenate.blogspot.com. Maybe Hillary Clinton is willing to talk about her decision to place me under surveillance and about her insulting letter about me to my somewhat intimidated brother Jim in upstate New York.
  Or maybe Hillary Clinton will do what she and Bill have been doing for decades and simply lie.
  Senator Bernard Sanders on the other hand, in response to my calls and email to his U.S Senate office, on May 21, 2015 sent me an email announcing his support for "self-determination for the Tibetan people."
  It's Hillary/Communist China/Wall Street/Diane Savino/Robert Cataldo/the Mob vs. Bernie/Tibet/me in this election. The issue is who tells the truth. Against Hillary Clinton now and in November Donald Trump? The choice is easy. Bernie for President!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In Hillary Clinton's trademark bullying style - which I've experienced quite directly and via her thuggish surrogates, particularly those connected to the Mob-linked corrupt Democratic machine Staten Island of for example Hillary pal NYS State Senator Diane Savino and her criminal Chief of Staff identified Mafioso Robert Cataldo - she is trying to both sweet talk and simultaneously intimidate Bernie Sanders into surrendering the Democratic Party nomination to her. Today's NY Times reports that a group of anonymous purported Bernie supporters is urging him to drop out of the race after the June 7 California primary - even if he wins it. Fortunately Sanders's spokesperson Michael Briggs reiterated that Bernie is campaigning to win the nomination and that he will be a candidate at the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia.
   The question nonetheless arises as to what Bernie Sanders decides to do candidacy-wise, if the Hillary machine succeeds in purchasing and/or intimidating enough superdelegates to give her the nomination.
   Not entirely ironically, presumptive Republican Party nominee Donald Trump, who remains at odds with the Party bosses and moneymen (e.g. the Koch Brothers), has suggested that Democratic Party rebel Bernie Sanders run as an independent. Trump assumes, correctly, that a "third party" candidacy by Sanders would draw many votes from Hillary. Sanders would most certainly draw a great many votes from Hillary. But The Donald should be careful what he wishes for. Current polls show that Sanders does better against Trump than does Hillary.
  The only other potential area of agreement between Sanders and Trump is on the issue of Communist China's economic and trade war against the U.S.
  Only Bernie Sanders, however, has, at my urging, announced his support for "self-determination for the Tibetan people."
   In 2000 the then ultra-"left" extremist-infiltrated Green Party hoodwinked the independent Ralph Nader to run for president on the Green Party line. As far as I am aware, only UP FRONT News reported that much of the infiltration into the Greens was done by double agents who learned their craft from the king of infiltration and intimidation, the ultra-left/ultra-right-ultra-left convicted felon and racist fascist Lyndon H. LaRouche, and carried out by LaRouche-educated crypto-fascists such as the anti-Semitic Jew, psychotherapist cult leader "Dr." Fred Newman; his protégé, the African-American anti-Semite Lenora Fulani; and their cultists including Paul ("Zool") Zulkowitz, Jerry ("Can't") Kann, Cathy Sadell, George Tatevosyan et. al. They took over the very important NYC Nader for President "meet-up", repeatedly threatened me, and managed to convince a relatively a small number of left-oriented people in a few swing states, in particular Florida, to vote for Ralph Nader rather than the Democratic ticket of Al Gore/Joseph Lieberman. Those few votes tipped Florida's electoral vote to the Republican George W. Bush/ Dick Cheney ticket and enabled the Republicans to steal that election.
  What millions of Americans still do not understand is that was the crypto-fascist pseudo-"left" LaRouche/ Newman/Fulani/Zulkowitz, et. al. intent. The idea was, while rhetorically bashing both the Democrats and Republicans, to swing the election to the Republicans. Why? Under a Republican Administration there would be major economic attacks on the poor and marginal middle class, generating and exacerbating the conditions that breed mass anger, the fuel that feeds populist fascism. Case example: post-World War I defeated and economically devastated Germany where the masses of the impoverished were drawn to the "revolutionary" populist National "Socialist" demagoguery of Adolf Hitler.
 For more on the American fuehrer-wannabe Lyndon LaRouche visit UP FRONT News online at www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspot.com and also the works of investigative reporter Dennis King, who wrote "The New American Fascism", a thorough biography of LaRouche.
  The quite well-known Green Party (and WBAI-FM) activist and UP FRONT News reader Mitchel Cohen has told me of his hopefully successful efforts at separating "the Newmanites" from the Green Party. Some Newmanites, such as Kann/Sadell/Tatevosyan, are reportedly gone. Mitch Cohen, however, reserved judgment on a couple of other (erstwhile/) cryptos in the Greens, including police collaborator, anti-Free Tibet/pro-Communist China "poet" Pete Dolack, and self-advertised "peace" activist Zulkowitz. All of these phonies have been connected with the pseudo-ultra-"left" LaRouche-ite demagogue and conspiracy theorist Geoffrey ("The Jewzi") Blank.
  Several Greens, including Mitch Cohen, have told me of their support for Bernie for president. At my suggestion Green Party member (and UP FRONT News staffer) economist Allen Smith changed his Party enrollment from Green to Democrat, enabling him to vote in the April 19 Democratic Primary in New York.
 The presumptive Green Party candidate for president is Jill Stein. Ms. Stein did not respond to my email asking her if, in the event Hillary became the Democratic Party nominee, she would drop out and endorse Bernie and thereby presumably enable him to run on the Green Party line in November.
  And if there is a dissident anti-Trump Republican (Marco Rubio?) ready to run independently American will certainly have a choice.
  From the human rights and integrity standpoint, the best option is for voters in the remaining primary states, including Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Oregon, New Jersey and California, to vote for Bernie and for the superdelegates at the Democratic convention to understand that, while the integrity-challenged Hillary could lose to the integrity-challenged Trump, Bernie, singularly qualified to take on the billionaires, will beat the loudest billionaire of them all.

THE MAIN ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION: INTEGRITY. THE CLINTONS LIE, E.G.TO (AND ABOUT) ME. THE STATEN ISLAND FACTOR. THE TIBET FACTOR.   BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE MAIN ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION: INTEGRITY. THE CLINTONS LIE, E.G.TO (AND ABOUT) ME. THE STATEN ISLAND FACTOR. THE TIBET FACTOR. 
BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT!
 Some weeks ago after several primaries, won easily by Donald Trump for the Republicans and "won" very uneasily by Republicrat Hillary Clinton for the Democrats, voters were asked to rate the (at the time) five remaining candidates for the presidency, Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and Republicans Donald Trump, John Kasich and Ted Cruz, as to the least trustworthy. The candidate with the highest percentage of "least trustworthy" responses was Hillary Clinton. In second place was Donald Trump. The candidate with the least number of "least trustworthy" responses was Bernie Sanders.
 Polls are never 100% accurate; at the same time, they are rarely very wrong. And so America is faced with the possibility of a "choice" between two people who lie a lot.  and we consider ourselves a politically advanced "democracy." (DeMOCKracy?)
 There is no question that, his "democratic socialism" notwithstanding, Bernie Sanders' emergence into a very "electable" presidential candidate has a lot to do with the fact that, no matter how far Hillary opportunistically and rhetorically "left" tilts, a majority of the voters, Democratic and Republican, do not trust her.
  I am one of them.
  Her decision to secretly privatize many of her State Department emails, including those relating to the "didn't have to happen" Benghazi disaster, only to have her account penetrated by a Romanian hacker, reveals how sneaky Hillary Clinton is. That is now an FBI matter.
  Of course when it comes to sneakiness and lying, Bill Clinton challenges such Republicans as George W. Bush and Big Dick Cheney for the Liars Gold Medal.
  As a steadily increasing number of voters, including the also steadily increasing numbers of UP FRONT News readers, are learning, Bill and Hillary Clinton's secrecy, dishonesty and willingness to resort to crime have been used against me as part of their direct involvement in something much bigger human rights wise than Bill's philandering and Hillary's email shenanigans. It involves Genocide!
  Since 1992 first Bill and then Bill & Hillary have been involved in covering up the ongoing Chinese Communist racist genocide against the people and nation of formerly independent Tibet. Given the fact that the mainstream and so-called "alternative" media reporting on China-occupied Tibet is rare and less than thorough (there was little reporting anywhere on condition inside the Nazi concentration camps, in one of history's most horrendous coverups) the best and most consistent reporting is to be found in UP FRONT News online at www.tomsupfrongtnews.blogspot.com. The worst "reporting" is in the multibillionaire Donald Newhouse-owned Staten Island Advance, ironically based in New York City, certainly the "media capital of the world."
 Thanks in part to the history of political news suppression and corruption protection that characterizes political "journalism" at the S.I. Advance, New York City's "forgotten borough" is also the city's most corrupt borough. It is also the borough where the dictatorially controlled Tammany Hall-style Democratic Party machine is tied to the Hillary machine and does not tolerate dissidents - such as me.
  Staten Island may be the only jurisdiction anywhere in the U.S. with a state senator, Hillary pal Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.), whose Chief of Staff is, at least episodically, a psychotic lunatic and who has been identified by the independent minded Staten Island Democratic Party official Mendy Mirocznik as "a member of the Sicilian mob." It was while I was an announced Democratic write-in candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2005-06 against then incumbent Hillary Clinton that, at my scheduled appointment with Mr. Cataldo on an urgent constituent matter when I was in fact still homeless, Cataldo, in a room that he had already emptied of potential witnesses, went berserk and literally terrorized me for several minutes. (It's documented in NYPD Complaint # 2006-120-8244, fully reported to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the  FBI.) Inasmuch as Robert Cataldo, anticipating my arrival for my scheduled appointment with him, had made certain that there would be no witnesses I have long suspected the Mob factor. Thank you to Mr. Mirocznik, who is also the outspoken President of the Council of Jewish Organizations of S.I. Other Jewish leaders in Staten Island have made the morally indefensible mistake of remaining silent. They need to revisit the words of Protestant anti-Nazi Martin Niemoller.
 It is very relevant to point out here that among Savino's close pals is Rev. Dr. Tony Baker of the largely African-American St. Philips ("No Apostrophe") Baptist Church in Port Richmond, which I made the innocent mistake of joining in 2014. Rev. Baker - who unlike other clergy such as Rabbi Gerald Sussman of Temple Emanu-el, also I n Port Richmond and the very political Rev. Dr. Demetrius S. Carolina of the largely African-American First Central Baptist Church, who have called for independence for Tibet, has remained stone silent on that issue - subscribes to the Savino/Cataldo school of NFL-style politics, as he physically attacked me at a recent Easter event I attended at his Church. Perhaps that is not surprising in a Church with a deacon, John ("Praise the Lord" - and Pass the Ammunition) McBeth, a charter member of the corrupt Staten Island Democratic Party machine, who, with obvious  political motives, has harassed me on multiple occasions. Sadly the otherwise human rights-sensitive Assistant Pastor Rev. Agnes McBeth (Deacon John's wife) has decided to play the role of obedient soldier in the St. Philips/Savino/Cataldo Democratic Party Machine.
  The folks at St. Philips preach a lot about Jesus but remain stone silent about the massive religious persecutions perpetrated by the Chinese Communists occupying a nation, i.e.Tibet, in which Jesus Himself was a resident about 2000 years ago. See also UP FRONT News article dated March 30, 2013 "Jesus in Tibet (and the Spanish Connection?) Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet: A Recrucifixion" and "The Lost Years of Jesus" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet.)
  President-elect Bill Clinton, imminent Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Clinton Administration Communications Chief George Stephanopoulos were made personally and directly aware by me of the genocidal atrocities committed by the Chinese in Tibet in December, 1992 via my telephone conversations and faxed correspondence with Bill Clinton's secretary Betty M. Currie (better known to the public as the unwilling communications link between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski) and with Mr. Stephanopoulos's secretary, Amanda. The Clinton/Christopher/Stephanopoulos political loyalty however was, and is, to the mega-corporate Wall Street-entrenched China Lobby, which profits massively from its investments in the fascistic "Communist" slave state known as The People's Republic of China.
  I am certain that Clinton/Christopher/Stephanopoulos can explain why, on January 19, 1993 the day before Bill Clinton's first inauguration, I was arrested in the reception area of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in the U.S. Capitol with my invitation to attend that day's Committee hearing on President-elect Clinton's nomination of Mr. Christopher to be Secretary of State.

HOW HILLARY CLINTON "WON" STATEN ISLAND. THE UP FRONT NEWS FACTOR. MULTI-BILLIONAIRE-OWNED HILLARY AND MOB (NYS SENATIOR DIANE SAVINO/ROBERT CATALDO)-PROTECTING STATEN ISLAND ADVANCE BLOWS IT AGAIN. THE TIBET GENOCIDE COVERUP FACTOR! THE JESUS FACTOR!

   I am one of the steadily increasing numbers of Staten Islanders who, without a formal organization, nonetheless essentially boycott New York's most self-censored (and self-centered) and politically corrupt newspaper, the Staten Island Advance (aka "The Staten Island Retreat"). Yesterday I found an understandably discarded copy of what is unquestionably the most Mob-friendly paper and anti-human rights paper in the entire state of New York and perhaps the rest of America.
   Rachel Shapiro, either the worst or the second worst (after Tom Wrobleski) political "journalist" in New York State (and, again, perhaps America) reported that, while Donald Trump won a landslide victory over Ted Cruz and John Kasich in the Republican primary in New York, Hillary Clinton "only narrowly defeated" Bernie Sanders in  by a "squeaker." She got the math correct but the fundamentally corrupted and profoundly clueless Shapiro totally blew the political meaning.
  In New York State as a whole Hillary won 58% and Bernie won 42%. In Staten Island - where UP FRONT News (online at www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspot.com) is very widely read, perhaps particularly by progressive African-Americans and Jews who want nothing to do with multi-billionaire Donald Newhouse's establishment mouthpiece camouflaged as a legitimate newspaper - Hillary "won" by 51% to 49%.
  Only in UP FRONT News are the details of Bill and Hillary's direct involvement in the political coverup of the racist Chinese Communist Genocide in formerly independent Tibet and the facts of the money-obsessed Clinton's passionate and lucrative financial ties to the mega-corporate China Lobby. Only in UP FRONT News 
are the facts of the Clintons' harassments against me going back as far as December, 1992 reported. Only in UP FRONT News are the facts reported about Hillary Clinton's close political and personal relationship with the politician who may be America's most corrupt (s)elected official, the "mobbed up" NYS Senator Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.), whose lunatic Chief of Staff Robert Cataldo, who has been identified by Democratic Party official Mendy Mirocznik as a "member of the Sicilian Mob", literally terrorized me at my scheduled appointment with him in Savino's district office at 36 Richmond Terrace in St. George, S.I. (NYPD complaint # 2006-120-8244), reported by me to the FBI and to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
   There was - and is and will be - no way that UP FRONT News readers in Staten Island, and for that matter in Pennsylvania, Indiana, California, et. al. and the delegates (pledged and "super") at the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia will vote for the Mob-connected Hillary, a power and money-obsessed empress wannabe, who puts the interests of herself and the multi-billionaires in the China Lobby above the human rights and survival of the nation and people of Tibet, a land which, about 2000 years ago, was home to Jesus Christ - see also the March 30, 2013 issue of UP FRONT News headlined "Jesus in Tibet (and the Spanish Connection?) Chinese Communist Genocide In Tibet: A Recruxifiction" and also "The Lost Years of Jesus" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet.
  Only in UP FRONT News is it reported that Bernie Sanders, in response to my calls and emails to his U.S. Senate office, on May 21, 2015, sent me an email announcing his support for "self-determination for the Tibetan people."
  Free Tibet, Free America, and Free Staten Island! Bernie Sanders for President!

**********************************************************

It is a political fact that the dramatically popularly rising Bernie Sanders (it is a movement) will do very well in his native city of New York and that there is every likelihood that he will defeat multi-millionaire Northern Westchester resident Republicrat Hillary Clinton in the pivotal April 19 New York Democratic Primary in New York State. Perhaps the only area in heavily pro-Bernie New York City that remains a bastion of Tammany Hall-style Democratic Party Machine support is the North Shore of Staten Island, which is run in a thoroughly corrupt fashion as a political fiefdom by the "Unholy Trinity" of NYS Senator Diane Savino, NYS Assemblyman Matthew ("No Saint") Titone and the historically opportunistic NYC Councilmember Debi Rose, whose long time top political advisor David Jones is a known "Israel Basher" and explosive anti- Semite to boot.  Some years ago the NYU Brennan Institute of Justice rated the corruption-riddled New York State Legislature as "The worst state legislature in the country." That assessment was of course approximately 100% correct. It's only gotten worse - particularly in the     so-called "forgotten borough" of Staten Island, which continues to be victimized by the multi-billionaire (Donald Newhouse)-owned Staten Island Advance, which has a history of political news suppression, self-censorship, biased and libelous reporting (at least about me), and covering up political corruption, particularly in S.I., that exceeds any other paper in New York and perhaps America. Political reporters Tom ("Wrongleski") Wrobleski and Rachel ("Charade") Shapiro are arguably the two most dishonest journalists in New York and perhaps America. Editor in Chief Brian Laline is a de facto news censor and should be doing journalism for the government of North Korea or China or Syria. The one per center wannabe Publisher Caroline Diamond Harrison is a monied entrenched part of the corrupt ruling class of "The People's Republic of Staten Island." She is the "Marie Antoinette of Staten Island."  In early 2005 I announced my Democratic write-in candidacy for the U.S. Senate against then incumbent Hillary ("The Pillory") Clinton. (Visit www.tomweissdemocratforussenate.blogspot.com) I decided to run because, just like her phony husband, all her talk about human rights and helping the poor was pure poop.  It was her husband Bill who started criminally harassing me back in 1992 because of my quite public activities for a Free Tibet. Read UP FRONT News article dated August 20, 2015 "How the Clintons Have Covered Up the Genocide in Tibet: The Power of the China Lobby", (online at www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspot.com) which contains the details of my telephone and faxed communications about the gruesome Chinese Communist atrocities against, for example, Tibetan nuns and monks to and from Bill Clinton's secretary, Betty M. Currie (who, to her obvious chagrin, later became front page news during the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky reality show). It also details what happened to me when I arrived at the January 19, 1993 hearing in the U.S. Capitol of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations with my invitation from the Committee to attend the hearing on President-elect Bill Clinton's nomination of Warren Christopher to be Secretary of State. The reason Bill Clinton/Warren Christopher and Communications Director George Stephanopoulos had me arrested, by Officer Buck of the U.S. Capitol Police, when I arrived at the Committee room in the U.S. Capitol with my invitation is because all three of them had suppressed the information in the UP FRONT News articles about the that I had, at her request, sent to Ms. Currie and which she gave directly to Bill Clinton/Warren Christopher and George Stephanopoulos several times she gave them several times. The article also reports on my night in custody in Washington D.C.'s Central Cellblock, the excellent representation of me by an African-American Public Defender civil rights lawyer with an Angela Davis hairstyle, whose name I am unable to recall. The Bill Clinton Administration tried to politically and legally bribe me with an offer of a plea bargain, which, fully supported by my lawyer, I refused. The jury trial before Judge Leo Satterfield took place in July, 1993 and it didn't take the jury very long to come up with a verdict of acquittal.  No doubt to Hillary Clinton's major annoyance, while then S.I. Advance Political Editor Wrobleski, with whom I had a long face-to- face interview about my candidacy in early 2005, willfully suppressed the news of my challenge to Mrs. Clinton, Newsday reporter Dan Janison in an article in NYC Newsday published on August 26, 2005 about Hillary Clinton pal the CIA-linked then NYC Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum's paranoid claim that I was "stalking" her, reported my candidacy and my characterization of Mrs. Clinton as a "de facto right winger." (I've never "stalked" anyone and, with reference to the notoriously egotistical Betsy Gotbaum, with whom via my family I've been acquainted since 1979, I can only cite country singer Dwight Yoakum's hit song., "I Ain't That Lonely Yet".)  When in 2006 I was in need of some urgent assistance from a local elected official I connection with a Social Security-related matter when I was homeless (presumably the only homeless candidate for the U.S. Senate in the country) I went to NYS Senator Diane Savino's office one flight up at 36 Richmond Terrace, spoke to a staffer,, explained the problem, and was given an appointment with Robert Cataldo, as I recall for the following day. When I showed up on time, the door two Savino's office was open and I entered into what seemed like an unoccupied office. I waited for maybe two minutes and then announced my presence. Within a nanosecond a man, Robert Cataldo, came barreling out of a rear room like one of the Bulls of Pamplona, bellowing profanities, including an accusation that I was having sexual relations with my mother. He backed me up against a wall and for the next few minutes, literally terrorized me with threats of violence and arrest while spitting at me. After a few minutes I managed to squeeze my way clear and leave. A couple of days later I called and spoke to Savino directly on the phone. Her reaction to my account was to say, "Oh, don't worry about Cataldo." Savino has been protecting and covering up for the lunatic Robert Cataldo ever since.  Robert Cataldo, fully aware that I was a candidate for the U.S. Senate against Savino's close pal Hillary, planned his act of terrorism against me and, to assure that his criminal act would not be witnessed, emptied the office of all staff before my scheduled arrival. That's Mafia stuff! And when the politically controlled 120th precinct refused to take my complaint against Cataldo, I called an honest cop, Sgt. Detective Al Fiore, then with the NYPD's Intelligence Unit, who had helped me when the paranoid Gotbaum once tried to have me arrested. Sgt. Fiore traveled from his office in Brooklyn and met me in S.I and filed my complaint for me. The complaint #2006-120-8244 is signed by him and also, coincidentally by another police officer surnamed "Fiore."   Quite a number of months ago I had a meeting at the Jewish Community Council of Staten Island with Mendy Mirocznik, who is a leading Staten Island Democratic Party official and also the respected and influential President of the Council of Jewish Organizations of Staten Island. Mr. Mirocznik, speaking to me very privately, told me that Robert Cataldo had committed a similar crime against another victim. He then paused and told me, verbatim, "Robert Cataldo is a member of the Sicilian Mob."     I am not surprised.  And at the request of the U.S. Department of Justice (Loretta Lynch) and the FBI, I've sent them detailed reports on everything. A detailed report from me has also been emailed to NYPD Commissioner William Bratton and to Robert Bocchino, Commanding Officer of the much improved 120th precinct, and to the very professional 120th precinct Detective Quania Rios, who would presumably by involved in arresting Robert Cataldo, presumably in coordination with the FBI.  Perhaps Diane Savino's closest friend in the African-American clergy is Rev. Dr. Tony Baker, Pastor of the St. Philips (no apostrophe) Church in Port Richmond, S.I., a few blocks north of Rabbi Gerald Sussman's Temple Emanu-el. Last year when Rabbi Sussman, with whom I've been very well personally, religiously and politically acquainted for years, was hesitant about arranging a meeting for us with Savino, at least to discuss some constituent and legislative matters, as a member of St. Philips, I asked Dr. Baker to set up a meeting with Savino. He agreed. During the preparatory discussion in Dr. Baker's Church office I told him that in the meeting with Savino, I would not bring up the Cataldo matter. My mention of Cataldo's name brought a thin smile to Dr. Baker's face as he told me that he had conducted Cataldo's marriage - to a woman who, as I later learned from Assistant Pastor Rev. Agnes McBeth, is Egyptian - leading me to hypothesize that Robert Cataldo is not only Mafioso but also a Pharoah-(wannabe).  Within moments of Savino's arrival at the meeting, she lied by referencing the Cataldo incident and blaming me for everything. As the at least outwardly very "religious" Rev. Baker knows, "bearing false witness" is expressly prohibited by the Ninth of The Ten Commandments. Savino really pushed the Biblical envelope by trashing that Commandment in house of worship.  But that's what "mobbed up" politicians do. Last year I again enraged the corrupt Democratic Party machine in S.I. by announcing my write-in candidacy for Congress in a special election to replace the convicted and resigned U.S. Congressman Michael Grimm. The Democratic Machine candidate NYC Councilman Vincent Gentile had refused to answer my UP FRONT News questions regarding his position on the political coverup of the police lynching of Eric Garner, about other police misconducts (e.g. against me) at the 120th precinct and about the Chinese Communist Genocide in Tibet. Within a few political moments of my announcing my candidacy, it was St. Philips Deacon John McBeth (Agnes's husband) who declared political war on me with what became a series of blatant disrespects to me, to my UP FRONT News staffer Steven Gradman, and open acts of political discrimination and harassment bordering on the criminal. Mr. McBeth, a member of the largely African-American Debi Rose-connected Staten Island Political Action Club (SIPAC), repeatedly lied to and about me.  Rev, Baker failure to reply to an email sent him by my Campaign Manager Andrew Mazzone suggesting a meeting only made things worse. At the very least John McBeth's manners (when unobserved) are atrocious and stand in dramatic contrast to the politeness of SIPAC "Interim Leader" Sheree Goode.  Dr. Baker is retired military man. Evidently he still operates by military rules. Between "Praise the Lord" exclamations and mega- volume sermons, when faced with an uppity political activist, in this case me, he makes threats, calls the cops and mot recently literally physically attacked me in the Church with absolutely no provocation from me at the March 23 Easter Week Holy Thursday even memorializing Jesus's betrayal by Judas and His arrest. Moments later I was physically attacked by an NFL-physiqued Church official who used a four letter word in English (not in Biblical Hebrew or Greek) sometimes appearing in the Village Voice but nowhere in the Bible. When it comes to me Hillary Clinton calls the shots with her close pal Diane Savino. Savino's hired intimidator is Mafioso Robert Cataldo. Their hired Church is St. Philips Baptist Church in "The Peoples' Republic of Staten Island."  I always thought that the Mob-liked Churches were for the most part Roman Catholic.  That is most certainly not the case in Staten Island. St. Philips is "mobbed up." "Praise the Lord" - and pass the corruption.    There is a small park named Veterans Park outside St. Philips, where the "religious" political hatchetman "Deacon" John McBeth literally chased me on Palm Sunday, 2015. Maybe they should ask the NYC Council to rename it Gesthemane.   UP FRONT News reader Bernie Sanders replied to my emails and calls about Tibet with a May 21, 2015 email which calls for "Self-determination for the Tibetan people."    A vote for Bernie is a vote against Genocide and against the Mob. Bernie Sanders for President!

ROCK 'N' ROLL DEMOCRACY IN MUSIC
  Bluesman Jon Paris, who does the increasingly popular and, by contemporary nightclub standards, affordable Monday night All-Star Blues Jams in Lucille's Grill at the BB King's at 227 West 42nd Street in Manhattan at what Mr. Paris describes as "the center of the universe", reminds is that "the blues had a baby and they named it rock 'n' roll." Taking it back historically, gospel had a baby and they called it the blues. taking it back several centuries, Johann Sebastian Bach, with his variations over a bass foundation, established the structure of what became the blues. And if you want to go back still further, at least for lyrics, it's best go to the Psalms in the Old Testament.
  Mr. Paris - who has performed and/or recorded with Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Johnny Winter, Bob Dylan, Les Paul, John Lee Hooker, et. al. - does three sets. The first is with his band, which includes the bassist-and poet Amy Madden and, depending on scheduling, a number of virtuoso drummers. He performs "covers" such as Chuck Berry's not very well-known slide guitar instrumental "Deep Feeling", the much better known Johnny B. Goode, some Jimi Hendrix, some of his own compositions and tunes from what seems to be a mental encyclopedia of songs. The band does some Jimmy Reed blues and some Buddy Holly rock 'n' roll. During the second and third sets, Jon invites musicians who are present to join the band. A regular is Joe Berger, who, if he were a violinist, would be compared with Niccolò Paganini. Angelina Rose sings gospel with the Jon Paris band, Gass from Britain, sings songs by the Rolling Stones but told me that he does not perform "Gimme Shelter", which he regards as "The Holy Grail" of rock 'n' roll. I agree. He and I also agree that "Gimme Shelter" requires a powerful female voice. Maybe if Mick Jagger, Adele and/or the somewhat less well known Rebecca Moore show up, a "Holy Grail" performance could happen. And speaking of Adele, a regular I know only as Meredith does a very compelling rendition of  the Steve Winwood and Traffic anthem of spiritual and earthly despair and survival, "Can't Find My Way Home." They do some Jimmy Reed blues, some Buddy Holly, some Stevie Wonder and also gorgeous Chris Isaacs song, "Wicked Games" that would quiet even the most boisterous rock 'n' roll crowd. The food and service there are very good.
   Some of those who perform at the Jon Paris Blues Jams at BB KIng's also sing and play at another no cover charge live music (and poetry) venue. the Sidewalk Cafe on the Northeast corner of East 6th Street and Avenue A in the East Village. Amy Madden has played bass there for the undiluted bluesman Ricky Byrd. Mac McCarty & Kidd Twist are a sometimes quite Irish and political led by a very forceful singer with something to say. The Lord Calverts are ready for Saturday Night Live, especially if these middle aged very gifted musicians show up in CEO-style business suits and perform originals in a very good mood. Lower East Side elder statesman David Peel performs - and talks politics - there recurrently, backed up by what seems to be a constantly changing collective, which includes some surviving hippies. Rock 'n' roll poetry is done there very assertively by Jennifer Blowdryer and Puma Perl and their respective bands.
   The food and service at Sidewalk are very good also.

STOPPING RACIST NEO-FASCISM IN AMERICA. WHO CAN BEAT TRUMP?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
STOPPING RACIST NEO-FASCISM IN AMERICA. WHO CAN BEAT TRUMP? NOT HILLARY; ONLY BERNIE!  THE  INTEGRITY FACTOR AND THE TIBET FACTOR.
     Adolf Hitler, the father of "The Big Lie", was smart enough to sprinkle in a few truths with his genocide predicting rants that mesmerized millions of economically devastated post-World War I defeated Germans and Austrians. Hitler understood that if one lies all the time, one becomes predictable and easily exposed. He was "truthful" and correct in asserting that the masses of quite destitute Germans and Austrians were being victimized by the "capitalists" in charge of the World War I victorious governments that forced the economically devastating Versailles Treaty on defeated Germany and Austria. It was the masses who paid those "reparations."
   And so Hitler oratorically and violently positioned himself as the leader (fuhrer) of the National Socialist German Workers Party, much better known as the Nazi Party. His message, not unlike Donald Trump's, was "populist." It was nationalistic, militaristic and racist. Hitler's main scapegoat was of course the Jews. And, although Adolf Hitler did not win the votes of the majority of German, he did much better than all the other factionalized "left" and "conservative"
parties in the Weimar Republic and was "elected" as Chancellor of Germany. It took him about 150 days to transform Germany from a political democracy into the Nazi dictatorship bent on annihilating the Jews and other "inferior" races and on world conquest.
   Donald Trump's message, often delivered with the malevolently "charismatic" flair that characterized Hitler's speeches, is nationalistic, xenophobic, populist and surely racist - and, not at all surprisingly, is attracting the support of Jew and African-American-hating KKK neo-nazis like David Duke and Jared Taylor, all of whom approve of Trump's recent praise of some of the mega-aggressive oratory of the founder of fascism, the late Benito Mussolini.
 So where does "The Donald" tell the truth? That's an easy one. Every time he accuses Hillary Clinton of being a "liar" Donald Trump is telling the truth!
  Hillary lied about facing snipers' bullets in Sarajevo. She is lying about her privatizing her State Department emails. Every time she speaks at, for example, an African-American church or a liberal Jewish organization and claims that he she is for the poor and the homeless she is lying, inasmuch as she refused to be a U.S. Senate sponsor of the oft-introduced Bringing America Home Act, an important bill aimed at ending homelessness in America. Every time she says she is for human rights she is lying, as both she and her husband, symbiotically tied to the mega-corporate Wall Street bunch known as The China Lobby, are up to their joint eyeballs in the political coverup of the racist genocide being perpetrated by the light-complexioned totalitarian rulers "Communist" China against the dark-complexioned ethically, culturally and linguistically distinct people and nation of formerly independent Tibet, the land that about 2000 years ago was home to Jesus (aka "Issa") Himself. See UP FRONT News online at www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspoit.com and "The Lost Years of Jesus" by Elizabeth Clarke Prophet.    
  And I have the "smoking gun" proof about Bill and Hillary vs.Tibet and vs. me!
 And that is why Hillary Clinton - and some of her Mob-linked pals such as NYS Senator Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.), whose Mafioso Chief of Staff, Robert Cataldo, fully aware of my 2005-06 Democratic write-in candidacy for the U.S. Senate against then incumbent Hillary Clinton (visit www.tomweissdemocratforussenate.blogspot.com, committed a major terroristic act of criminal harassment (NYPD Complaint # 2006-120-8244)against me at my scheduled appointment with him in Ms. Savino's otherwise unoccupied district office in Staten Island on a very urgent constituent matter when I was homeless - lied to (and about) me!
  As far as I am aware, Bernie Sanders is the only candidate, who, aside from taking on the billionaires backing Republicrat Hillary and the Republicans - has, via his May 21, 2015 email to me (after lots of calls and emails from me to his Senate office in Washington), announced his support for "self-determination for the Tibetan people". Bernie is in good company as that is also the position of my acquaintance Dr. Cornel West..
   It's time for Bernie Sanders to take the gloves off and expose Hillary's lies and talk out loud about freedom for Tibet.
   After Brooklyn born and raised Bernie wins the critical New York primary on April 19 against more recent New York State resident Hillary and becomes the Democratic Party nominee he can take on another billionaire, in this case the neo-fascistic Donald Trump and beat him - perhaps by a landslide.

THE BATTLE FOR STATEN ISLAND. DEVELOPERS AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK DECLARE CLASS WAR ON NORTH SHORE STATEN ISLAND - "NOSHO."

THE BATTLE FOR STATEN ISLAND. DEVELOPERS AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK DECLARE CLASS WAR ON NORTH SHORE  STATEN ISLAND - "NOSHO." THE "BAY STREET CORRIDOR" MEETINGS. (S)ELECTED OFFICIALS, I.E. "THE UNHOLY TRINITY" OF MACHINE DEMOCRATS, ARE NO HELP. WE LOST MOUNT MANRESA TO THE DEVELOPERS. IT WON"T HAPPEN AGAIN..
    Inasmuch as it would be a major mistake for the public, particularly in Staten Island, to depend on the multiibillionaire Donald Newhouse-owned Staten Island Advance (aka "The Staten Island Retreat"), a paper with a history of pro-developer tilt and covering up major politicall corruoption, some of it involving the mob (Robert Cataldo) Chief of Staff to New York State Senator Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.), for fair and thorough coverage of the issue of politically connected gentrification in Staten Island this is likely to be the first of a number of newsbreaking articles in UP FRONT News about what could amount to disguised politically and economically generated "ethnic cleansing" in the so-called "forgotten borough" of Staten Island, still one of the few remaining outposts of "affordability" in New York City. 
  At the most recent open to the public meeting last Saturday of the NYC Department of Planning, NYC Economic Development Corporation, NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development-organized "town hall"-style gatherings focusing on the major rezoning and development plans for the "Bay Street Corridor", which stretches through the working class neighborhoods of St. George, Tompkinsville and Stapleton (where I live) in ethnically diverse North Shore Staten Island (known as "NoSho" by readers of UP FRONT News), the government people unveiled a plan for the rezoning and redevelopment of much of the North Shore.
  If this plan were to actually be operationalized several  working classd communities would be destroyed and replaced by upscale housing snd the related commercial entities - all of which are near one of the centerpieces of this plan, the now under construction "World's Largest Ferris Wheel", between the St. George S.I. Ferry Terminal and the ball park of the minor league Staten Island Yankees.,
  Department of City Planning Project Manager Daniel Viera facilitated the Saturday February 20 meeting - very nicely, actually allowing me to speak, setting him in sharp contrast to for example the Staten Island Democratic Association, which is connected to "The Unholy Trinity" of Diane Savino, Assemblyman Matthew Titone and NYC Coiuncilmember Debi Rose, where, at least when I am present, meetings are run according to Mussolini's Rules of Order. Mr. Viera mentioned the existence of an "advisory group" working with the government agencies on this plan, When I asked him how I would get onto this advsory group he suggested that I speak with one of the (s)electeds. I told him that his suggestion was the equivalent of asking an African-American in 1950s Birmingham Alabama to speak to a local (s)elected about joining a government run advisory committee. For more of the facts on "The Unholy Trinity", avoid the Staten Island Advance and read UP FRONT News online at www.tomsupfrontnews.blogspot.com.
  I urged Mr. Viera to expand his outreach to include for example Temple Emanu-el in Port Richmond, led by UP FRONT News readers human rights and "Building Bridges" leaders Rabbi Gerald and Boni Sussman, both of whom are members of the Council of Jewish Organizations of S.I., led by (UP FRONT News reader) Mendy Mirocznik, who also has the facts on Diane Savino's favoirite mobster, the explosive criminal Robert Cataldo, The govenment also needs to involve The Church That Never Closes in Prince's Bay, on S.I.'s more "exurban" and indeed borderline rural South Shore. Very much like Jesus Himself, The (still pastorless) Church That Never Closes focuses its ministry on the poor and draws many people from "NoSho" to its services and very good meals.
   Many people know about the loss of the gorgeous Jesuit Mount Manresa retreat to the developer Savo Brothers, whose contribution to the homeless explosion has been to build upscale housing there. S.I. Borough President Republican James Oddo is belatedly furious about all that. In any case, he should never have accepted that campaign donation from the Savo Brothers when heran for Borough President.
  As far as I can tell most if not all of the machine Democrats who run things in NoSho are corporation favorite Hillary Clinton supporters. So what! Telll her that Staten Island is changing.
   As Eric Garner, the victim in an actual police lynching - the full facts of which are covered up the Staten Island Advance and the entire political and media establishment and reported exclusively in UP FRONT News - said, as he was attacked by Police Officer Danierl Pantalkeo, "It stops here!"
   From UP FRONT News and Staten Island to the developers, to "The Unholy Trinity and to Mayor Bill De Blasio,, "It stops here!"

   More soon.

THE PHARISEES OF STATEN ISLAND

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE PHARISEES OF STATEN ISLAND
     As was being made very clear in in Rev. Agnes McBeth's Wednesday evening Bible classes that I've attended at St. Philips Baptist Church in the economically fragile neighborhood Port Richmond, Staten Island, the Church a perhaps ten minute walk from Rabbi Gerald Sussman's Temple Emanu-el, Rabbi Jesus got Himself into big political trouble with his peaceful but very confrontational challenge to the Roman rulers and some of the Jewish leaders known as the Pharisees, who were oppressing and ripping off the "99 percenters" in Jerusalem and beyond, who were thereby literally capitalizing on a rigged tax structure. Jesus's reported "miracles" scared the rulers, who could not comprehend that a human being possessed such powers. The Romans and their friends among the Pharisees were not about to tolerate Jesus's exercising what we now refer to in America as the First Amendment-guaranteed rights of free speech and assembly, such as His denouncing at least some of the Pharisees as "hypocrites", that speech reported in Matthew 23, which should be required reading also in the synagogues today.
 And so, with the overt and covert collaboration of the Romans and some politically connected Jewish Pharisees, Rabbi Jesus was betrayed by an associate, arrested, hauled before a kangaroo court, convicted of telling the truth and, with the support of demagoguery-receptive mob, lynched. And that has led historically to the racist notion - brought to its lowest point perhaps by Hitler and the Nazis, that was at least rhetorically supported by demagogues like the late Hugo Chavez and other anti-Semites such as the KKK - that "The Jews killed Christ."
  Rabbi Sussman, a key figure in the expanding Building Bridges interfaith coalition in S.I., reminds us that it was a few of the politically entrenched Pharisees who helped the Roman dictatorship in its silencing of the man who is described by "Rev. Agnes" (as she prefers to be known at Church) and me in political terms as a Jewish revolutionary.
  The is no human behavior that Rabbi Jesus disliked more than dishonesty and corruption. Political/economic dictatorships thrive on corruption and on the "silence of the lambs" that sustain corruption lead to massive - and sometimes genocidal - attacks on people's human rights such as took place under Nazism in Chancellor Hitler's Third Reich and is taking place now under President Xi's Chinese Communism in Tibet - not at all coincidentally in a formerly independent country led by a Buddhist pacifist monk with a Judeo-Christian (i.e. Moses/Isaiah/Jesus) message, that, during what Christian theologian Elizabeth Clare Prophet refers to as "The Missing Years", was Jesus's home for some time.
  As Hitler and the Nazis tightened their power, with the aid of Jews and others who remained silent, a Protestant Minister, Martin Niemöller, said and wrote, "When they came for the unions, I was silent; when they came for the communists I was silent; when they came for the Jews I was silent. And when they came for me there was no one to speak for me." (Niemöller was arrested by the Nazis but survived.)
  Although the colony I refer to as "The People's Republic of Staten Island" is hardly Nazi Germany, when it comes to political corruption, Staten Island, - where the notion of high level Mafia political influence is not a stereotype - is a cesspool. I know of no other borough in New York City or a county in New York State with a state senator whose Chief of Staff is a criminal and an episodically thoroughly psychotic man and an identified mafioso. The Senator is Diane Savino and the mobster - who has terrorized me and reportedly at least one other victim - is Robert Cataldo. I know of no religious leaders outside of Staten Island who remain silent about the likes of their pals Savino and Cataldo. I have not heard a word of protest from Rev. Dr. Tony Baker of the already referenced St. Philips Baptist Church in S.I.. And perhaps Rev. Agnes's husband St. Philips Deacon John McBeth would like to explain his history of harassing and trying to silence me. Some contemporary Pharisees are "Christian."
  I know of no other borough in New York City or a county in New York State with a City Council member whose top political advisor is an "Israel basher"/attempted Tom Weiss basher and a de facto anti-Semite. The City Council member is Debi Rose and the anti-Semite is David Jones.
  I know of no other borough with a (gay) (s)elected official, who, at least in his dealings with me, lies habitually and who in 2014 at a standing room only candidates forum at the Transit Workers Union Hall in Great Kills, S.I. as he began his speech, made a (joking?) reference to having a sexual relationship with Robert Cataldo. I am for full gay rights - but not with a same sex partner who is a mobster. The politician is NYS Assemblyman Matthew Titone.
  Among those who remain silent is Roy Moskowitz, best described as a professional and - at least outwardly- religious "liberal", who is guilty of ripping off the taxpayers by drawing a salary as a member of Titone's staff. Moskowitz is an official in the Democratic Party Machine Club called the Staten Island Democratic Association - which should make Niccolo Machiavelli an honorary member.
  Also a SIDA official is NYS Senate wannabe Gary Carsel. He knows everything about the wacko Mafioso Robert Cataldo and the anti-Semite David Jones in the Democratic Party house and has remained politically catatonic. As far as I can tell, if Gary Carsel were hiding a Jew in his attic from the Nazis and an SS man came to his door asking him if he had any Jews at home - Gary might say, "Please go upstairs- but don't mention my name."
  The Pharisees of Staten Island.
