Super Savings Saturday – 2/16/19

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday. 

The word of the week was “free” and Walmart was the place to be. (Who likes my corny rhyme? Am I too silly? Nah!) 🙂

Thanks to Ibotta, I was able to bring home a variety of goodies that won’t cost anything after rebate. Every one of these items is still available if you’d like to do the same deals. 

Walmart:

Perfect Energy Bar, regular price $1.98. Total: Free after rebate. (The peanut butter flavor is ok, but nothing exceptional.)

YQ by Yoplait Yogurt, regular price $1.34. Total: Free after rebate. 

Forto Coffee Shot, regular price $1.98. Total: Free after rebate. 

Base Culture Almond Brownie, regular price $1.56. Total: Free after rebate. 

Bic Flex5 Razor, regular price $5.97. Total: Free after rebate. (The last item was also free from Bic itself, not Ibotta.)

In addition to the Ibotta freebies, I also bought a bunch of bananas at $0.39/lb and limes that were $0.25 each. 

 

Have you redeemed any rebates lately?

Canary Mission Exposes Self-Hating Jews & Other Anti-Semites

Words have power; we all know this, but some folks seem to forget that it can be a double-edged sword. 

Unfortunately, spreading lies and misinformation is a favorite pastime of a small but viciously vocal group of self-hating Jews. These lame-brains, along with other anti-Semites who are not Jewish, are being exposed on Canary Mission

According to their website, Canary Mission’s goal is to “document individuals and organizations that promote hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on North American college campuses.” (This is something that I support 100%.)

How do they accomplish such a lofty goal?  Again, they are transparently clear about their methods which involve “investigating hatred across the entire political spectrum, including the far right, far left and anti-Israel activists.” (I also agree with that.)

They further state: “Canary Mission is motivated by a desire to combat the rise in anti-Semitism on college campuses. We pursue our mission by presenting the words and deeds of individuals and organizations that engage in anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry, along with the array of organizations that comprise the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.” (Not to be redundant, but I love this, too.)

That is in sharp contrast to anyone claiming that their site is malicious, lies, and/or puts people in danger. It does not! It simply collects and posts their own words, for the whole world to see, allowing the reader to decide. 

Of course, when an evil doer is exposed, they don’t take responsibility, they start blaming others. Such is the case with a Wellesley College sophomore whose own Twitter feed has provided an open-and-shut case. Sophie Hurwitz, who snookered the St. Louis Post-Dispatch into making her the victim, whines that: “Strangers on the internet are being fed lies about me,” adding, “I was pretty freaked out.”

Is it a lie to simply quote her tweets? I think not. And those tweets are truly hideous. If she stands by her words and believes she’s right, why would it freak her out? Obviously, she knows she did wrong and now wants to pretend it’s a smear campaign. 

If someone is hateful and bigoted, they deserve to be exposed. (I am NOT talking about publishing home address or phone numbers, only links to social media accounts and posts.) Canary Mission is not doing anything wrong. Those who say otherwise are pushing a radical, anti-Semitic agenda. The Jewish community has a right to know if someone is intent on harming or defaming us. Creating such an important list is priceless. 

No Sympathy for Traitor Monica Witt

What could make an American citizen want to betray her own country by aiding the enemy—Money? Mental illness? Religion? A depraved heart? Maybe a combination of factors?

Nobody can be 100% sure of the motivation, but the government has tremendous evidence of the crime: Monica Witt, a 39-year-old Air Force Veteran, has been charged with spying for Iran.

The Washington Post has detailed the case better than I ever could, discussing how she was turned from a (presumably) normal Texas girl into a radical Jihadist, who defected to one of the most oppressive nations on earth. I can follow their trail, but I will never, ever understand how someone can reject the West, reject freedom, reject all that is good for humanity, and adopt an ideology of hate, fear, misogyny and fundamentalism—especially a woman!

Shockingly enough, she is not the only American woman who’s done it. Marzieh Hashemi, formerly known as “Melanie Franklin,” may also be charged in the case and was recently held as a material witness. 

Add the Muslim convert son of director Oliver Stone into the mix—evidently he and Witt met in 2012 at an Iranian conference that denounced America and Israel—and it truly seems bizarre. (I’m not accusing Sean Stone of any illegal activity, but I am denouncing him for having zero sense, no integrity, and turning his back on the Jewish community.)

This is an odd case, for sure, but it’s not an isolated one. With a scary regularity, news stories air about US citizens and UK citizens, in particular, being lured to join ISIS and other radical Muslim groups. Even celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Sinead O’Connor have embraced Islam, wearing Hijabs and “Burkinis” in public, unable to see the irony. 

It should be obvious that there is nothing positive about espionage. I don’t care what excuse anyone makes, when you commit treason, you are a criminal. A crime that serious deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Personally, I would sentence Monica Witt to life in prison. How many Americans and Israelis lost their life because of her crimes? How much closer to nuclear war are we because of her? The public may never know, but I guarantee people have suffered tremendously. 

I believe in second chances. I believe in the power of forgiveness. But I also firmly believe in justice and the rule of Law, which is clear that evil doers must be held accountable. This is a slap in the face to every American, every military member and vet, and all of the folks who were taken hostage and tortured by Iran. Monica Witt is a traitor and she deserves no sympathy.
