Is THIS How It All Came To Be?

Eight Christmas Trends We REALLY Hate!

They're big. They're everywhere. And they're full of hot air.

It's those garish Christmas inflatables that pop up this time of year.

These bloated intrusions on our landscape include the ubiquitous Santa, his elves, reindeer, penguins and polar bears. Ranging from about 4 feet to more than 20 feet tall, they also depict cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse, Snoopy and Elmo. And then there are snow globes and revolving carousels.

We hate these gassy excuses for Christmas cheer. We hate them during the day when they go flat like big ugly pancakes on lawns and porches all over the place. And we hate them even more at night when they blow, glow and gloat with a trashy confidence that's positively scary.

And that's just one part of Christmas that we've come to hate. Here are some others:

Ugly Christmas sweaters. Enough already with these horrifying "fashion" faux pas. We got the idea, OK?

"My Favorite Things." We don't know who decided that this Rodgers and Hammerstein ditty from the saccharine "Sound of Music" might be a Christmas song, but whoever it was has now inflicted raindrops on roses and cream-colored ponies on us for the rest of our lives. As much as we try, wecan't discern the connection between wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings and Christmas. In fact, this song is dumb and tiresome any time of the year.

Christmas lights around your neck. You know -- the ones that actually light up and are powered by batteries. And it's even worse when these garish house lights adorn folks who are as big as a house!

Taking your dog to see Santa. Who concocted this numbskull notion? Probably some mall marketing director. Dogs don't want to see Santa. Dogs don't care about Christmas. And Santa doesn't particularly want to see dogs, either. What's more, he doesn't want to have his picture taken with your pet. He's got enough problems lifting bratty little kids onto his lap without worrying about an Irish setter. Throw the dogs a bone and leave them home, please!

Wreaths on the front of your car or truck and/or antlers bursting out of side windows. Unless you reside in your car and/or think it's a reindeer, you don't need these.

Super glow, one-size-fits-all multi-colored light projectors that pretend to be laser lights. These are catching on now and, guess what? They're nothing more than a sign that you're lazy. You don't want to actually put up Christmas lights. So, you project one of these onto your house and the whole place looks like it has red and green chicken pox. OK? Are you satisfied?

Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays. These two sanitized sentiments (and similar salutations of the season) mean absolutely nothing to us. It's like saying, "Have a nice day."

And, those of us who actually celebrate Christmas as the day of Jesus' birth resent having the holiday dismissed as some passing seasonal afterthought. Everybody knows what Christmas is. Even people who don't celebrate it understand the basic meaning of the holiday.

So, go ahead - smile and say "Merry Christmas." You'll feel better.

Ten Best Christmas Songs From Broadway Shows

Broadway musicals and Christmas have been going together for a long time.
And a good Christmas song is usually a sure way to brighten most any Broadway show. But, not all Broadway Christmas songs are bright and cheery. Some are a bit more gloomy.

Here are ten* of the best:

1) It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas from Here's Love.
2) We Need A Little Christmas from Mame.
3) Be A Santa from Subways Are For Sleeping
4) Hard Candy Christmas from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

5) Turkey Lurkey Time from Promises, Promises
6) Christmas Is My Favorite Time of Year from Catch Me If You Can
7) Lovers on Christmas Eve from I Love My Wife
8) I Don't Remember Christmas from Starting Here, Starting Now
9) A Greenwillow Christmas from Greenwillow
10) Christmas Child from Irma La Douce

*Note that we have not included songs such as White Christmas or Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas as these were originally written not for Broadway but for movie musicals. Some of these movies eventually made it to Broadway (such as Meet Me In St. Louis) but the tunes originated in movies.

Fitzherbert: Van Drew Desperate; Insults Intelligence!

In response to news reports today that career Democrat Jeff Van Drew is considering switching parties, Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District Brian Fitzherbert released the following statement:

“How stupid does Desperate Jeff Van Drew think South Jersey Republicans are? Desperate Jeff knew exactly what Washington Democrats were about when he ran for Congress two years ago. In his brief time in Washington, he’s voted with Nancy Pelosi over 91% of the time, Adam Schiff 88% and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 84%. How can South Jersey Republicans trust Jeff Van Drew to represent our Party?

His own Party has rejected him and now he’s trying to use South Jersey Republicans to cling onto his power. Shame on him. This race has and will continue to be about improving our local economy and creating opportunity for South Jersey ensuring President Trump gets reelected this November.

There is no place for desperate Jeff Van Drew in South Jersey’s Republican Party."

A New List Of Offensive Christmas Songs? OMG!

Unless you've been lying under a rock, you've heard about the controversy surrounding the "Christmas" song Baby, It's Cold Outside. Some radio stations have now actually banned the song on the grounds that it preaches male dominance and sexual coercion, if not rape.
Well, to begin with it's not even a Christmas song. It's a song about the cold weather and winter. Anyway, if we're gonna take offense at the lyrics of this song and charge it with not being politically correct, consider all the other holiday songs that would come in for rebuke:

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (photo, above)
Mocking senior citizens and encouraging elder abuse.

Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer
Ridicule and bullying based on personal features without respect for differences.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Celebrates mommy who loves role-play with a lecherous "old-man."

Santa, Baby
Encourages woman to find sugar daddies who will lavish them with gifts in exchange for . . . what?

O Little Town of Bethlehem
Disrespects small towns just because they may not have modern conveniences or facilities.

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth
Mocks the natural childhood loss of baby teeth and needlessly scares kids into believing their new teeth may never grow in.

Dominick the [Italian] Christmas Donkey
The entire song is an ethnic slur. Also offensive to donkeys.

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas
Bratty kid doesn't have enough; needs a wild animal, too. Encourages animal cruelty as animals such as this should not be removed from their natural state.

White Christmas
So, what's wrong with a red Christmas or green Christmas or yellow Christmas or a purple Christmas? Why does it have to be white?

The Christmas Song
"Folks dressed up like eskimos" mocks eskimos. They're not "dressed up" like that for fun. That's their natural, practical, necessary attire.

All I Want For Christmas Is You
Equates human beings with material possessions.  You have no right to possess anybody, on Christmas or any other day.

Twelve Days of Christmas
An endless celebration of greed and excess.

We Three Kings
Exalts monarchies, autocratic regimes and feudalism.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman
Sexist. Totally ignores women.

A Holly Jolly Christmas
Encourages the kissing of total strangers under the mistletoe: "Kiss 'er once for me."

Silver Bells
Use of precious silver for such frivolous purposes depletes the environment.

Economic Index SURGES Under President Trump!

Americans are feeling better than ever about the economy. The Rasmussen Reports Economic Index hit 144.3 in December, up one point from last monthand just shy of the five-year peak reached early last year.

Enthusiasm about the economy started to grow immediately following Donald Trump's election as president in November 2016 and spiked to 145.9 in February 2018. By comparison, in President Obama’s final years in office, this index reached a high of 121.5 in January 2015 and was at 108.1 his last month in the White House.

(Want a free daily e-mail update? If it's in the news, it's in Rasmussen polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

The survey of 1,500 American Adults was conducted on December 1-3, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Make No Mistake, It's A COMMANDING Majority!

The Best Christmas Songs EVER? Add To Our List!

It's easy to become inundated with Christmas songs this time of the year. And, after awhile they all begin to sound the same.
That's too bad. Because amidst all the songs, there are some that are unique -- some that truly stand out. These are the songs we listen to this time of the year.

So, in no particular order, here are a dozen (give or take a couple) of the best (and most original) Christmas songs we know:

This Christmas - This song has been getting more airplay in recent years. There are two good versions; one by Harry Connick, Jr. and another by Danny Hathaway.

Goin Home For Christmas - This haunting piece by Merle Haggard summons up so much feeling. It's a perfect pastiche.

Santa Baby - Don't buy any updated versions. Trust only the original by Eartha Kitt.

Christmas In Dixie and Santa Claus (I Still Believe In You) - Both by Alabama and both on Alabama's first (red) Christmas album. These are two of the best songs and this is one of the best Christmas albums you will ever find.

Christmas Was Made For Children - I really like the Mel Torme version on his album, Christmas Songs.

Angels Among Us - By Alabama. This is not technically a Christmas song but it just seems so appropriate and particularly beautiful this time of year.

Christmas Cookies - A song that never made it onto George Strait's Christmas album but you can find it on some country Christmas compilation albums.

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem - This wondrous bluegrass Christmas song sung by Dailey and Vincent is one of the most beautiful things we've ever heard!

Christmas in New Orleans and Christmas Night In Harlem - Both feature the great Louis Armstrong (pictured) with the Benny Carter Orchestra. Check them out on The Best of Louis Armstrong and Friends, The Christmas Collection.

When It's Christmas Time In Texas - By King George himself, George Strait. Full of wonderful imagery!

New York City Christmas - By the Cover Girls. This may be hard to find but it's got plenty of high energy. It turns up on a lot of compilation albums.

Baby, It's Cold Outside - By Louis Armstrong and Velma Middletown . This is the raciest version of this song we've ever heard and it's just the right answer to the politically correct, "cleaned up" versions of he song that have been appearing lately. This version is great, vintage fun!

As you can see we like Christmas songs that evoke certain times and places.

That's because Christmas is a time for memories, dreams and imagination.

And these songs trigger memories, enrich dreams and enliven imaginations.

It's OK, You Can Go Ahead And Say It Now!

So now, with just shy of two weeks to go till the Big Day, it's time to say it.
All together now: "Merry Christmas!"
Say Merry Christmas to everyone you meet.
Say it to everyone and anyone from now through Christmas Day.
Say it and say it and say it again.
Don't hesitate. Don't worry. Don't even think about being politically incorrect.
For there is nothing political about Christmas. Christmas means loving and caring and helping and believing. And Christmas is for everyone.
Christmas means putting aside ill thoughts. It means leading with your heart. It means making yourself a little bit more vulnerable. It means reaching out to others.
Christmas is thoroughly American because it has to do with community and sharing and concern for others. The spirit of Christmas has helped to make our country great.
Christmas only divides those who seek to divide us -- those who wallow in petty resentments; the hair-splitters who look for reasons to disagree and those who highlight our differences rather than what we have in common. Christmas is inclusive. It makes room for everyone. It wishes all peace and joy and harmony.
The people who speak most about tolerance and understanding are often the most intolerant and the most disrespectful when it comes to Christmas. They have become the Christmas gentrifiers. They seek a generic holiday: flat, shallow, meaningless.
Don't let them get away with it.
Wish them a Merry Christmas as well.
Make no apologies for your glad tidings.
Don't even think twice about it.
Let the robust good spirit of the season carry you along.
M-E-R-R-Y C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S.
Merry, merry, merry Christmas to all!

What Are YOUR Favorite Christmas Classics?

Christmas movies, music, plays -- all have a special allure. And many of them are perennials. They return again and again. They're become classics -- and with good reason. They simply have a timeless quality that makes us look forward to them year after year.

Here are more of our favorite Christmas classics:

1) Have A Holly Jolly Christmas - The original version of this tune by Burl Ives is still the best!

2) I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - The Jimmy Boyd original is tops! It reached number One on the Billboard charts in 1952, and on the Cash Box magazine chart at the beginning of the following year. The song was commissioned by Neiman Marcus to promote their Christmas card for the year, which featured an original sketch by artist Perry Barlow, who drew for the New Yorker magazine for many decades.

3) Christmas Time's A 'Comin (and I know I'm goin home) - Don't settle for anything less than the Bill Monroe bluegrass version. It will touch your heart.

4) It's A Wonderful Life - If you miss this classic Frank Capra Christmas movie, you've missed Christmas itself! In fact, many consider this to be the best Christmas movie ever made.

5) A Christmas Carol - Watch ONLY the black and white 1951 movie version (pictured above of this classic tale starring Alistair Sim. Sim really defined Scrooge for generations. No others can match this depiction.

6) The I Love Lucy Christmas shows. CBS still broadcasts these which feature five Santas on Christmas eve as well as an over-trimmed tree that rivals Charlie Brown's puny version. This will be shown on December 20 at 8 PM.

Christmas reached a sort of zenith in America in the 1950s. It was a glorious time for home, family and Christmas. Maybe it was the aftermath of the war and the prosperity that followed that made everything so Christmasy.

Or maybe it was just those crazy 50s novelty songs, all that sentimentality and brave new inventions like spray snow and angel hair that made the difference. Who knows?

But, wait -- we have to expand our list just a bit.

Here are a few non-1950s favorites:

1) Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas - This Muppets Christmas TV event is a heart-tugger and remains true to the Christmas spirit -- a childhood favorite that carries on into adulthood.

2) A Charlie Brown Christmas - Surprisingly meaningful, if not downright religious. The music, the meaning, the simple, heartfelt animation and the distinct characters all make it super-special.

3) Home Alone - The first movie (not the sequel) is still the best. The whole story revolves around Christmas.

4) O. Henry's The Gift of the Magi. about a young couple who are short of money but desperately want to buy each other Christmas gifts. Unbeknownst to Jim, Della sells her most valuable possession, her beautiful hair, in order to buy a platinum fob chain for Jim's watch; while unbeknownst to Della, Jim sells his own most valuable possession, his watch, to buy jeweled combs for Della's hair. The essential premise of this story has been copied, re-worked, parodied, and otherwise re-told countless times in the century since it was written.

5) Christmas In Connecticut. Though it has been revived in an updated version with Dyan Cannon and yet again since then, the original film with Barbara Stanwyck and Sydney Greenstreet remains great fun.

Are These The BEST Country Christmas Songs?

OK, we can all start playing Christmas music now.
And since there's no Christmas like a Country Christmas, that means country music.
Because, somehow Christmas and country music just seem to go together.
So it should come as no surprise that many of the best Christmas songs you will ever hear are country Christmas songs.
To begin with the single best Christmas album we've ever heard is by Alabama and it's simply titled "Christmas." This is the first Alabama Christmas album issued in 1985.
Every song on this album is wonderful but some of our favorites include Santa Claus (I Still Believe In You), Christmas Memories, Tennessee Christmas and Christmas in Dixie.
We also like all of the songs on Clint Black's 1995 album "Looking for Christmas."

And let's not forget that Rudolph The Red Noised Reindeer was made famous by the singing cowboy himself, Roy Rogers.
Favorites from a variety of other albums include: 364 Days to Go by Brad Paisley, This Is My Prayer by Reba McEntire, When It's Christmas Time In Texas and Christmas Cookies by George Strait, Goin' Home for Christmas by Merle Haggard, and (a perennial favorite) Christmas Times A-Comin' by Bill Monroe.
Among non-country Christmas songs we like Santa Baby (the original by EarthaKitt) When My Heart Finds Christmas and I Pray On Christmas by Harry Connick, Jr. as well as It Happened In Sun Valley by Mel Torme and Christmas in New Orleans by Louis Armstrong.
A friend who takes a somewhat dimmer view of Christmas has asked that we add Merry Christmas From The Family by Robert Earl Keen and Granma Got Run Over By A Reindeer by Elmo and Patsy Shropshire.
So there, we've added them.

Plaudits To Trump For Acting To Protect Jewish Students

Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein, ZOA Chairman Mark Levenson, Esq., and Susan Tuchman, Esq., ZOA’s Director of Law and Justice, and staff and members wholeheartedly thank President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner for their wonderful planned Hanukkah gift to beleaguered Jewish students today.

The President will issue an executive order confirming that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VI protections apply to Jewish students suffering from the growing scourge of antisemitic harassment, intimidation, discrimination and violence on college campuses. The executive order will also strengthen these protections by referring to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism . The IHRA definition covers many of the anti-Jewish outrages that we have been seeing on college campuses during the past two decades, frequently led by the vicious antisemitic hate group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), including (SJP)’s calls for “intifada” (violence against Jews and the murder of Jews), dehumanizing Jews, demonizing Israel, and SJP’s calls to throw Jews off campuses, and destroy Israel.

The executive order makes it clear that Judaism is not only a faith; the Jews are also a people, and thus qualify for Title VI protection. We agree. Throughout the millennia, the Jewish people have identified as both a faith and a people, a nation – Am Yisrael Chai! The nation of Israel lives.

The president’s executive order is particularly welcome here at ZOA, because it strengthens ZOA’s long-running legal efforts to protect Jewish and pro-Israel students. ZOA’s Center for Law and Justice, directed by Susan B. Tuchman, Esq., led a six-year battle that, in 2010, culminated in the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), which enforces Title VI, changing its interpretation of the law to recognize that Jewish students who face discrimination based on their actual or perceived ancestry or ethnic characteristics are entitled to Title VI’s protections.

Ever since then, ZOA’s Center for Law and Justice has been employing Title VI to assist Jewish and pro-Israel students on American college campuses who are being harassed and discriminated against, and denied their right to a safe, welcoming learning environment. For instance ZOA’s Title VI complaint regarding an antisemitic hate-fest at the University of North Carolina resulted in UNC and Duke agreeing to adopt “zero-tolerance” for antisemitism policies and training programs, and to be monitored for the next three years. ( See “ What ZOA’s Legal Victory Means for Jewish Students Across the Country – Jewish Telegraphic Agency ,” by Susan B. Tuchman and Morton A. Klein, JTA, Nov. 27, 2019.) ZOA’s landmark UNC and Duke victory was referenced in many of the articles discussing today’s executive order.

President Trump’s executive order will be a potent tool in ZOA’s ongoing battles throughout the country to protect Jewish students.

ZOA also wishes to thank Jared Kushner for his efforts to enact this vital executive order.

President Trump’s executive order is also especially welcome because the House of Representatives keeps delayed voting on the bi-partisan legislation to strengthen Title VI. On December 1, 2016, the Senate unanimously passed the bipartisan “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act” to improve the enforcement of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act to protect Jewish students from antisemitic harassment and intimidation at federally-funded schools. ( See “ ZOA Applauds Bill Improving Title VI Protections for Jewish Students ,” Dec. 5, 2016.) ZOA hopes that the House will finally vote on this legislation, and add its voice to the crucial efforts to strengthen protections from antisemitic harassment and intimidation on college campuses.

Appallingly, even before the president has inked his name to his executive order, hostile-to-Israel groups including J Street are falsely claiming that the order violates “free speech.” It’s very peculiar how no one complains about “free speech” when any other group is protected from harassment and discrimination. It seems that it’s only when Jews are offered the same protections as other groups, that certain people yell “free speech.”

ZOA has previously answered the false claims of those who would stop Jewish students from obtaining and employing the hard-won legal protections that other groups enjoy. ( See, e.g., “ ZOA Op-Ed: Jewish Leaders Must Urge Students: Use Title VI to Fight Anti-Semitism ,” by Morton A. Klein and Susan B. Tuchman, Esq., New Jersey Jewish News, Nov. 19, 2018.)

“Let us be clear about two points. First, this executive order is not and should not be a partisan matter. President Trump has taken a step that undeniably will help protect Jewish students and help fight anti-Semitism. Anyone who claims to care about the rise in this ugly hatred and bigotry, and about assuring Jewish students the safe and welcoming campus environment that every student deserves, should be standing with President Trump on this issue and applauding the incredible step he has taken. Now Jewish students will finally have the same legal protections from harassment and discrimination that other ethnic and racial groups have enjoyed for more than 50 years, since Title VI was enacted in 1964.

“Second, despite what Israel-bashers and others may claim, there is nothing about this executive order that will chill free speech or prevent criticism of Israel. The executive order will not change one iota the way in which Title VI is enforced. We expect that OCR will continue to enforce Title VI consistent with what the First Amendment requires.

“We thank President Trump for taking this important step which should be applauded by Jews and non-Jews everywhere. In addition, we thank Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and senior advisor, who reportedly pushed for this executive order. We also thank Assistant Secretary Kenneth Marcus for his record of public service and exemplary leadership of OCR. Among his many achievements, it was under Mr. Marcus’ leadership at OCR in 2004 that OCR extended the protections of Title VI to Arab Muslim, Sikh and Jewish students, recognizing that OCR could not turn its back on victims of discrimination because they are members of a group that share both religious and ethnic characteristics.

“Last but not least, we thank all of the many students we have been privileged to work with over the years in our fight against campus anti-Semitism. To all of these amazing individuals – who attended UC Irvine, UC Berkeley, Brooklyn College, Hunter College and other City University of New York campuses, Rutgers University, Northeastern University and so many other schools – we commend you from the bottom of our hearts for your courage, your resilience, and your commitment to your right to be proud Jews and Zionists on your respective campuses.

Thank you again, President Trump, for brightening the Hanukkah of Jewish students throughout our great American nation.

ZOA is the only major American Jewish organization to consistently present the facts of the Arab/Islamic war against Israel. ZOA also exposes the anti-Israel lies about occupation, settlements, Jerusalem and Palestinian statehood. It is because of ZOA's bold and unapologetic voice that we have such a significant impact on public discourse and policy.

A VERY Special Christmas Message . . .
