The House Ethics Committee voted unanimously Thursday to seek full-blown investigations of Reps. Laura Richardson and Maxine Waters.

Though they are separate cases, both relate to the South Bay congresswomen's conduct during the housing crisis.

In Richardson's case, investigators will try to determine whether she received preferential treatment from her lender, Washington Mutual, during a foreclosure dispute last year.

She is also alleged to have omitted assets and liabilities from her financial disclosure forms.

Waters is accused of pressuring Treasury Department officials to meet with representatives of OneUnited Bank without disclosing that her husband served on the board and held stock in the company.

OneUnited lost a substantial sum of money due to the failures of two government-backed mortgage banks, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Both representatives were named this year to a list of the "most corrupt" members of Congress compiled by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group.

PROTEST Dayanim at EJF conference said...

Only TWO weeks to go. Tropper is in the middle of legal cases and dinei Torah, he has NO right to advertise and "summon" anyone, let alone "dayanim," to come hear him pontificate!

The fourth EJF/Tropper-ego/Kaplan-Recanati bribe money/Rav Nochum Eisentsein-anger/Rav Reuven Feinstein-two faced show, aka "Dayanim Conference" is scheduled to take place November 8-10, so take note

Tropper's sickening chutzpa and fraudulence are being exposed and his so-called major backer R REUVEN Feinstein will have to explain in court and bais din what he did with the 3 million dollars Guma Aguiar gave him, heed the call to boycott and stop any all upcoming EJF events and put Tropper out of action for all time:

Concerned Jews who fear the consequences of a fanatical and unstable Tropper hegemony over all Orthodox conversions are called to protest the upcoming Fourth Eternal Jewish Family Dayanim Conference Scheduled for November 8-10 in New Jersey. See full ad below.

If you know any of the noted speakers in the ad below, contact them and make your strong opposition to Tropper and his EJF scheme known loud and clear. Do not allow Tropper's personal power's to spread. Once he has them he wield's them ruthlessly.

Some of the slated speakers, such as R REUVEN Feinstein have allegedly been paid at least three million dollars to help Tropper and EJF, they are not trustworthy!

Urge your local rabbi, rov, posek or dayan on any Bais Din NOT to attend and to make their own protets heard. By now many rabbis are sick and tired of Tropper's antics and his controversial EJF scheme. Do not submit to Tropper's dictates under any cirmstances!

Urge your rabbis and rabbonim to RETAIN THEIR INDEPENDENCE as any self-respecting person should. Do not submit to Tropper who is a notorious control freak!

It has now been revealed that Tropper cynically uses bribes (given as "grants") to his favored rabbis to attend his free EJF events, thus entirely corrupting the integrity of the Halachic process and forcing those accepting his bribes to adhere to his extreme views that have been criticized and condemned by rabbis from the right (Badatz of Eidah Chareidis) and the left (RCA).

If you are able to, please join a vigil and protest outside of the hotel Novemebr 8-10 at the Sheraton Meadowlands in Secaucus NJ.

"Fourth Eternal Jewish Family Dayanim Conference Scheduled for November 8-10 in New Jersey

Written by Admin on October 13, 2009 – 12:06 pm -

PREPARATIONS WENT into high gear for the fourth EJF Dayanim Conference, which is scheduled to take place November 8-10 at the Sheraton Meadowlands in Secaucus NJ. Some 40 dayanim and Roshei Yeshiva will gather to confront crucial halachic issues that arise involving universally accepted Jewish conversion standards in intermarriage.

Most of the dayanim are part of a growing network of independent batei din in North America that have adopted the Jewish Conversion standards of leading poskim, as is being promulgated by EJF International. The Batei Din function in cities such as Baltimore, Monsey, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Montreal, Miami, Lakewood, Dallas, Toronto, Houston, and Vancouver. Last year’s conference was addressed by such prominent Torah personalities as:

Harav Shmuel Kaminetsky, Rosh Yeshiva of the Yeshiva of Philadelphia and a member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Agudas Yisroel

Harav Reuven Feinstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta of Staten Island and Chairman of the Halachic Committee of EJF

Harav Dovid Olewski, Rosh Yeshiva of the Gerer Mesivta (Brooklyn)

Harav Betzalel Tuvia Wettenstein (Belzer Dayan of Monsey)

Rabbi Eliyahu Levin (Lakewood)"

JP online article from June 2006, comments added in with "[ ]" brackets:

In 2006, the JP published one of its most notorious and shocking articles on berhalf of the launch of EJF written by someone who was obviously fed every last line and rationale that Tropper EJf and their defenders would use. Note how they never produced a written Haskoma from any rov from then, in June 2006 to now in October 2009 when under pressure R REUVEN Feinstein, revealed on arecording to oppose Tropper's agenda of reaching out to the gentiles and getting them converted by EJF, and making it public, causing panic in the Tropper camp and begging Rav Reuven Feinstein to give them even a feeble "haskoma" which he did, but in turn creating a contradiction with what he is recorded as syaing in opposition to EJF's getting friendly with the gentiles agenda.

Note "Oxnard" is a town in California where EJF and Tropper held ther first retreat to convince hetiles to convert via EJF conversions to become Charedi Jews.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,

Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;

Here once the embattled farmers stood;

And fired the shot heard 'round the world.

- from "Concord Hymn," Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1837

With Independence Day just around the corner and Concord's "shot heard 'round the world" still reverberating two hundred and thirty one years after the fact, the world may want to take note of a gathering that just took place in another part of America known for spawning revolutions. For like "the shot" immortalized in Emerson's poem, this quintessentially American moment could well mark a civilizational watershed.

[Grandiosity incorporated. Right off the bat one sees team Tropper’s megalomania at work. At that time it was a threesome. Tropper acting as the “holy one” with the Torah leadership, and his two sidekick naïve BT Billionaire backers, Tom Kaplan and his nephew Guma Aguiar. Oh what a glorious ride they were going to unfurl on the world. A “revolution” was great and as worthy as the American Revolution. And the JP was acting as the agent to publish the new Tropper revolution’s “declaration of independence” “constitution” and “official press” all rolled into one. What delusional and misguided whackos they all now look. They have split up in an ugly “civil war” (like all good revolutions, the next stage is usually civil war or at least fratricide.) The three happy revolutionaries that the JP is in effect pushing have broken up. Tropper claims that Guma loved his gentile wife Jamie more than he loved Tropper so he dumped Tropper and his EJF and went and got his wife an Orthodox conversion from Rabbi Bomzer, one of Tropper pet hate objects. Then Guma fired back claiming serious financial fraud by Tropper and of being “framed by his uncle Tom Kaplan whom he fights in courts and they sue him over their mutual billions. My how the EJF revolution lost its way by it’s 3rd birthday already. At least from 1776 to 1881 its about 110 years.]

Whether its having transpired should be attributed to the decades of scholarly research and quiet preparations that preceded it, to Divine Providence, the dawn of the messianic age, or the California sun will surely be debated. But one thing is clear. On June 18, 2006, in Oxnard, California, Judaism enthusiastically reached out its arms to potential converts.

[Come what? This is the “dawn of the messianic age”? Really now? It is hard to read this kind of stuff with a straight face, but the JP not only foisted and published it still keeps it online more than 3 years later as a proud reminder of one of its worst blunders. And what “preceded by decades of scholarly research”? EJF? Or do they mean that what was finally on Tropper’s mind for decades was finally revealed? What a sad day it is/was that the JP can foist such drivel and trash and still hope to be taken seriously. Does that mean then that if EJF heralds the “messianic age” that Tropper is its obviously by now proven to be fraudulent and crooked “messiah. My what a belly0full of garbage the JP put forth here.]

Invited by a small New York- and Jerusalem-based organization called The Eternal Jewish Family, non-Jews came from all across America and Canada, from all walks of life, and from a diversity of ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. Sporting surnames like Gately, Wayne, James and Thompson, jobs like insurance salesman, high-school teacher and attorney, and hometowns like Bangor and Decatur, they could have easily been your next door neighbors.

[And the JP is “proud” that it was helping to recruit non-Jews so shamelessly flouting 2000 years of Jewish laws in the Exile not do this kind of things written in multiple sources and practiced very seriously. But no, Tropper had to have his “revolution” once he had naïve BT former Christian evangelical missionaries like Tom Kaplan and Guma Aguiar throwing tens of millions of dollars at him quicker than he could say “I am the false messiah” a million times.]

Many of them brought their children. Others left them with relatives. Some had been trying to convert for years. Others were considering the idea for the first time. Most were able-bodied. Some were not. Yet all had one very special, typically American thing in common. They arrived in Oxnard two by two- each Gentile with his or her Jewish mate.

[Oh, if only Noach had known about this idea, he would have invited a person gone astray hitched to an alien people on board the Ark. The flights of fancy here are just amazing. Makes it sound that the intermarriage was so “glorious” that these intermarrieds were going to be the new vanguard of Tropper’s new army of zombies the “new EJF charedim produced by conversions” as if he and EJF were about to produce super pickles from plain old mixed up and confused cucumbers. Very sad and to think the JP was advertising this like this makes you want to throw up.]

Intermarriages were once anything but "typically American." Yet over the last quarter century, the nation that the Puritans imagined as a Second Hebrew Republic has been steadily loving-to-death the exiled remnants of the original one. The result is that today, fully half of all non-Orthodox Jews are intermarrying.

[Ok, so be it. It is their free choice to do so. No one is obligated to chase people who do not wish to be Jews anymore. It is there chosen path in life. Not unless you are Tropper who thinks he can force feed anyone and anything to bend it to outcomes he has chosen and pre-ordained for the, After all he is the “messiah” of this new amazing revolutionary messianic age. Love that line about “Loving-to-death” such a poor view of your client base. Are they people who should follow a new false messiah and false EJF messianic ideology or are they psychiatric suicidal patients? Is Tropper and the EJF and the JP appealing to people in love or to people with a death wish? There is big difference. People who are in love can love and are normal. People with a death wish are crazy and belong in mental homes. Seems Tropper and EJF don not realize that their words and their aims sosnd like an agenda for a mental home.]

Most Americans view this phenomenon with pride, as an affirmation of the nation's most cherished democratic ideals, and further proof of American exceptionalism. Unsurprisingly, reactions of Jewish-Americans range from alarmed to indifferent. But regardless of how anyone feels about it, demographers have made it clear that one of America's most respected and productive communities is gradually headed out of business.

[Not so. You lie, or maybe you are ignorant. There are thriving Torah communities all over the USA. More than a quarter of Israel’s Jews are Orthodox. About 30% of the 120 Knesset members are Orthodox. Jews and Judaism will exist and flourish as long as Orthodox Judaism is around, Jews and Judaism do not rely on non-Orthodoxy for its survival. That should be obvious from history. Converts, no matter how pious and righteous will not save Jews or Judaism, in fact they are not needed to save Jews or Judaism. Tropper should know this but he has drowned in all the self-adulation and the oceans of gelt he has been drowning in and that have drowned out his little sechel that he may have gotten from his parents that he long ago dumped in favor of grandiosity.]

"Too bad," one can (almost) imagine The New York Times opining one day:

"We loved our buffalos the same way. Fare thee well blessed root that produced Jonas Salk, Sasha Cohen and Richard Feynman. Go softly golden source that gave us "God Bless America," "Carousel," and "Spring Is Here." You had us worried there for a second, you alien, obdurate and discomfiting non-believers who despite yourselves blossomed Groucho Marx, Aaron Copeland and Arthur Miller."

[Since when does anyone care what the NY Times may opine. They are assimilated animals themselves. Like wondering what the Nazis would have said had they won the war. Totally stupid speculation. And to think this is being published in the JP yet?]

From a Jewish perspective, however, the most heartbreaking aspect may be that those intermarried Jews who, despite past decisions, fervently wish to retain their identity and their children's identity as Jews are up against near impossible odds. These include the inescapable reality that there are few more serious violations of Jewish law than marriage to a non-Jew, that such marriages are condemned by the Bible and completely unrecognized, and that the status of the children of such partnerships are regarded accordingly.

[You have this right. It’s a tragedy. Jewish history is full of tragedies. Stop the tear jerking you jerk.]

But can Judaism simply turn its back on sincere returnees who are intermarried?

[Yes. Judaism is not interest in mass proselytization to gentiles, even to ones married to Jews, ever. In fact Judaism forbids it as much as it does intermarriage, something this article forgets to mention.]

Those who remember the television program "The Millionaire" will recall that each time the anonymous benefactor's emissary, John Beresford Tipton, approached someone with the gift of a million dollars (which was a lot of money in the late 50's), the recipient's initial response was a blend of disbelief and cynicism (the varying proportions of which kept the series interesting from week to week). Such was the understandable reaction of most of the thirty-two intermarried couples who were invited to the Oxnard Seminar when their local rabbi informed them that the religion best known for turning away potential converts would not only welcome the non-Jewish spouse's application for conversion but also wanted to roll out the red carpet.

[“Rolling out the red carpet” to gentiles in the hope of convincing them to convert and become EJF Charedi converts is totally against Jewish law. This can be proven and its known very well.]

And who can blame them? Having long been written off as a bad investment of an outreach rabbi's time, they were now being invited along with their children to an all-expenses-paid retreat at a luxurious winery on the California coast. Between the gourmet meals, vineyard tour, and wine-tasting, they would get the lowdown on converting to Judaism, share their own experience with other similarly-situated couples, and meet the team that would streamline the process for them. It sounded too good to be true.

[In this paragraph, kiruv rabbis are slandered (“Having long been written off as a bad investment of an outreach rabbi's time”); forbidden to gentiles offered as viable (“were now being invited along with their children”); they are being bribed and paid to attend when converts must come under their own steam to prove their sincerity (“all-expenses-paid retreat at a luxurious winery on the California coast. Between the gourmet meals, vineyard tour, and wine-tasting,”); being sold a false bill of goods and teachers would be going against Jewish law to reach out to gentiles to proselytize (“they would get the lowdown on converting to Judaism, share their own experience with other similarly-situated couples, and meet the team that would streamline the process for them.”); Being tricked in the process (“It sounded too good to be true.” – it was!)

Yet by the end of the three-day event, even the couple who had braced themselves for "the ultimate Amway pitch" were reassured - and much more. Oxnard Seminar participant Mike Perkins called the experience "life-changing." New Yorker Pauline Edwards described herself as being "beyond inspired." Canadian David Durand said "it gave us a unity for life."

[Goody. Welcome to how easily Tropper pitches Judaism and makes followers for his new EJF cult.]

Little wonder. Along with the steak and (kosher) caviar,

[Steaks and caviar? If only Ruth the Moabite had it so good, she had to collect little stalks of wheat to eat before she converted and no one had to pump her up with wine and steak.]

EJF flew in a world class line up of motivational speakers. Such well known Torah heavy hitters as Rabbis Doron Kornbluth, Mordechai Neugroschel and Meyer Schiller gave talks and one of the top Israeli rock bands played through the night. Britney Spears's publicist even made a video appearance.

[Gosh, even Britney Spears publicist made it? Wow? What with rock bands and rabbis how could you resist. But in hindsight this looks like the kind of event Guma Aguiar would organize and he sure knows how to make a splash and get attention. But that was them this is now, and EJF has to live with this horrible PR albatross around its neck alkl care of the JP. What a bunch of crazies.]

In short, it was a lineup that would make George Steinbrenner blush, and the all but inevitable result was that of the thirty-two couples that came to Oxnard, thirty applied for EJF's Universally Accepted Conversion. Suffice to say that with chassidic tales, world class Beaujolais, and the California surf replacing Constantine's sword, conversion will never be the same again.

[Here we go with that code word for imposing only Tropper’s view of the world, the strictest, that comes after the steaks and the wine, “EJF's Universally Accepted Conversion” that would become a battle cry to crush the RCA, the Israeli chief rabbinate anyone else standing in the way of the Tropper/Eisenstein steamroller.]

Which raises the questions: Who is responsible for Judaism's apparent course change, who is footing the bill for this, and where is it all heading?

[Yeah, who? Sounds like it’s Mickey Mouse at work here so far in more ways than one.]

The rudder of Judaism is being steered in the same way as it has for thousands of years - by the leading Torah scholars of the generation. Today, that distinction is shared by HaRav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, shlita, in Jerusalem

[Rav Elyashiv has never said it is ok or normal for Orthodox rabbis to run after all the intermarried Jews in the world and convince, via steaks, wine and hotesl, to convert them all and make them into EJF charedim and zombie followers of Tropper!]

and HaRav Reuven Feinstein, shlita, in New York.

[He cannot be put with Rav Elyashiv in one breath or in one sentence. And now in 2009 he has contradicted himself and he has been accused by Guma Aguiar of taking his money and aligning with Guma’s enemies Tropper and Tom Kaplan. But in 2006 it was anice pipedream.]

But it would be a mistake to believe that these Torah authorities, however venerated, had the power to change Jewish law or alter God's Torah.

[They don’t.]

As the Oxnard participants learned, no one has the power to do that - and this is part of what defines Judaism.

[Yet, EJF proved that it WOULD do it for them.]

The surprising fact of the matter is that the legal basis for actively encouraging the conversion of non-Jewish spouses has long existed in the Bible commentaries of the medieval Jewish sage Maimonides.

[Rubbish! This is Tropper’s lies coming into gear.]

Based on subsequent elucidations by Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinsky, zt"l, and most recently by HaRav Moshe Feinstein, zt"l, the gedolei hador merely made the decision to proactively apply this principal to the American situation at this time.

[More of Tropper’s famous lies and krumme thinking. He is a Megaleh Panim BaTorah Shelo KeHalacha when he says this and the JP is part to this distortion of Torah.]

Financed by investor-philanthropist Thomas Kaplan and led by Feinstein-associate HaRav Leib Tropper, the Eternal Jewish Family was established last year to realize the vision of the gedolei hador.

[Now the real truth. But notice how Guma Aguiar’s name is kept out of view even though he is listed on official documents. Guess why, it’s a huge conflict of interest because the recently ex apostate Christian Evangelical missionary Guma is married to a gentile woman Jamie and has children with her. That is how hypocritically Tropper and EJF covered it up then, but it exploded in their face later leaving lots of egg on Tropper’s face and the EJF name self-destroyed.

Its mission is to develop a new standard for conversion - one that is universally accepted by all rabbis regardless of their affiliation (divisions had emerged over the last hundred or so years about the proper interpretation of the Jewish conversion laws); to educate the thousands of rabbis from diverse streams of Judaism about the new standard and instruct them in its implementation; and to establish the educational vehicles and religious courts that will serve the needs of the new converts.

[Sure and one way EJfF delusionaly was going to educate “thousands of rabbis” as it say yet was by paying them as many bribes as it would take from Kaplan’s and Guma’s billions and bring the rabbis over to hotels like they brought the gentiles for conversion pep talks and sell them the lies about “universal standards” while Tropper and EJF ran around convincing gentiles to convert EJF approved batei din, a scam worthy of a Madoff.]

With the demand for additional couple retreats now pouring in, EJF is too busy to revel in its California triumph. (Rav Tropper merely said that he was "gratified.") More advanced couples (who need no such motivational retreats) are already sending the volume of online application for UAC's soaring (the EJF website can be found at www.eternaljewishfamily.org; the phone number is 845-425-0550) and the organization is determined to provide a world class product. Regional EJF offices are opening, and rabbinical conferences are slated for Jerusalem in July and Boston in October, with gatherings in Europe and South America to follow. And as if EJF's plate needed filling, Israel's Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar recently announced that EJF would develop Israel's state-of-the-art, high-tech repository for conversion data .

[A lot of this stuff fell apart and the Beth Din of the Eidah Charedit came out with written rulings against EJF and Tropper to cease and desist from its crazy agendas driven by the Kaplan-Aguiar billions.]

You don't hear many comparisons between Barack Obama and Richard Nixon, but former Nixon White House aide Lamar Alexander thinks he has found one: The seeds of an "enemies list."

Now a U.S. senator from Tennessee, Alexander cited the Nixon team's "open declaration of war upon anyone who seemed to disagree with administration policies." Now, he added, "we're beginning to see symptoms of this same kind of animus developing in the Obama administration."

Referring to a story in Politico, Alexander decried White House pushback against Fox News, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the insurance industry and certain Republican members of Congress (including Alexander, who has criticized the White House appointments of "czars").

"If the president and his top aides treat people with different views as enemies instead of listening to what they have to say, they're likely to end up with a narrow view and a feeling that the whole world is out to get them," Alexander said.

He later added: "An 'enemies list' only denigrates the presidency and the republic itself."

Haredi father blocks burned toddler from Hadassah

Crisis between ultra-Orthodox public and Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital surfaces again. Even though his 16-month old suffered from severe burns on her body caused by boiling water spilled on her, father refuses to allow ambulance to take his daughter to Hadassah because 'rabbi advised otherwise'
Ronen Medzini

A 16-month-old toddler, who was severely burned when boiling water spilled on her, was hospitalized Friday morning in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, which does not have a burn unit, because her father opposed her hospitalization in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. The father justified his insistent refusal, claiming that "the rabbi advised otherwise."

About a month ago, the tensions aroused between the hospital and the haredi community by the 'starving mother' affair seemed to have subsided. However, now it seems as though the ultra-Orthodox boycott of the hospital is alive and kicking. Magen David Adom paramedics sought to evacuate the toddler suffering from severe burns caused by boiling water to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital because there is a specialized burn unit there.

The father, however, expressed his strong opposition. According to the medical team on the ambulance, the father caused a commotion on the ambulance and insisted that his daughter be taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

"The 16-month-old toddler was apparently burned by boiling water," said to Ynet Ilya Davoner, a Jerusalem Magen David Adom paramedic who evacuated the girl to the hospital. "An ambulance arrived to evacuate her to the hospital. Halfway there, we transferred her to a mobile intensive care unit. She suffered from second-degree burns over 15% to 20% of her body. The burns were mainly on her face, chest, and shoulders."

"We wanted to evacuate her to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital," he said, "but the father actively resisted, shouted, and caused a ruckus. He told us: 'Hadassah Ein Kerem doesn't treat our group well. That's what the rabbi suggested to me, and I am following the rabbi's recommendation.' The father insisted on going to Shaare Zedek Hospital despite our attempts to convince him to choose Hadassah Ein Kerem, where the treatment options are better considering the toddler's health condition. She is currently hospitalized at Shaare Zedek."

Hezi Rot, on call for United Hatzalah, a volunteer emergency medical service, provided first aid to the toddler outside the family's home. "The parents came downstairs with the toddler towards the medical team," he said.

"She was naked and wrapped in wet towels that the family had dressed her in. She suffered from burns all over her body from a pot of boiling water that spilled on her. Her skin was peeling. It was a serious burn. We immediately provided her first aid with bandaging. The parents were very stressed, panicked."

Rot recounted that some neighbors on the spot pressured the parents not to take the girl to Hadassah Ein Kerem: "This is a family with children. Of course they were very stressed. At the same time, a group of neighbors messed with their minds with protest. They said, especially to the mother: 'No way should you take her to Hadassah Ein Kerem.' Apparently, the pressure worked."

Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital has withheld comment at this time

Reliable sources in Passaic, NJ believe there is strong evidence that Passaic, NJ Assemblyman Gary Schaer is a homosexual.

Searching the homosexual book "Wrestling with God" on www.amazon.com for "Gary Schaer" will return an acknowledgement to him.

See the A3451 bill sponsored by Schaer and Neil Cohen.
This sham bill, apparently signed into law already, claims to prevent religious discrimination but in fact is a fascist
homosexual "rights" bill which brutally tramples the constitutional rights of religious heterosexuals.

Meanwhile Mr. Neil Cohen has been charged with child pornography:

Even the "Orthodox" Agudah rabbis are getting in on the action.

None of this toeivah has prevented many of the so-called "Orthodox" rabbis of Passaic from supporting Mr. Schaer.

Why are so-called Orthodox rabbis in Passaic bending over backwards (so to speak) to support Mr. Schaer and his homo-fascist agenda hiding behind religious accomodation laws?

Were the starry eyed Baalei Tshuvas in the Ahavas Israel shul aware of Schaer's true agenda or were they bamboozled by Ahavas Boss Yitzchak Eisenman?
