HAPPENING

Hysteria and the demonization of a president
Why such news media obsession with President Donald Trump?


by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez via Univision

A llow me to state the obvious: there is a palpable mania surrounding our 45 the president.

In fact, a report from Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed news coverage of President Trump's first 100 days in office. The study concludes that 41 percent of all news coverage was related to President Trump-three times the amount of attention given to past presidents-and a whopping 80 percent has been negative. For CNN and NBC that number was above 90 percent.

Think about that for a moment. This president dominates the news unlike any before him and it's almost all negative. It's a media obsession like we've never seen before.


 

Russia Won! How Putin succeeded in dividing America
Our political, racial, religious and economic rifts are glaringly obvious for all to see and they constantly assault our sense of national identity. What it means to be American is as fragile today as it's ever been and this presents an easy opening for those who wish to do us harm.



by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez via Univision

One of the surest ways to gain an advantage over your political opponents is to sow disunity among them. Unfortunately, this tactic has been leveraged against the American people to great effect in recent times.

The strategy is relatively simple: isolate the divisions inherent in any population or people group and aggravate the underlying bitterness, distrust or even hatred that may exist.

Just how do you do this? Unfortunately history is littered with examples. From North versus South in the Civil War, Catholic against Protestant in Northern Ireland, Black and White in Apartheid South Africa, the Tutsis and the Hutus in Rwanda, to Hitler's genocide against six million Jews in WWII-if you can convince one side that the other is the root of all sorts of evils, you can turn brother against brother and even throw a nation into madness.

CHOOSE GREATNESS

Did you know?

Bruce and Jeanne Lubin were curious. They wanted to know the facts about many of the everyday items people encounter.
 
The New Jersey couple especially wanted to find out the truth about their home environment. Their curiosity led them to research the truth about multiple ordinary experiences. That research eventually became a book, Who Knew?, published in 2006.
 
According to their research: 
 
If you store eggs upside down (the small end down) they will stay fresh longer (the same is true of cottage cheese.)

WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL

Celebrating Failure
by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. - Exodus 32:19

The Torah portion for this week is Naso, from Numbers 4:21-7:89, along with special Torah readings for Shavuot, Exodus 19:1-20:23 and Deuteronomy 14:22-16:17.

Shavuot, also known as the Festival of Weeks, celebrates the giving of the Ten Commandments to the children of Israel, and through them, to the entire world. It was on this day, the sixth day of the Hebrew month Sivan, more than three thousand years ago, that Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the tablets in hand. We celebrate this day with festive meals, special prayer services, and as in the days of the Temple, by bringing offerings to God.
