NYC to Ban Hot Dogs and Processed Meat to Improve Climate


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion Green New Deal to combat climate change. The plan is supposed to cut purchases of processed red meat by 50% in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. -GEG

New York City is the first city in the United States to eliminate processed meats.

Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion Green New Deal
on Monday, April 22, to combat climate change. The plan will cut
purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities
such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new
commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted
by all NYC schools in 2017.

“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan…. Estimates that
tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we
have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be
the same,” de Blasio said at an Earth Day event yesterday.

By 2030, New York City’s Green New Deal will reduce greenhouse
emissions by 30% while also creating new jobs. Additionally, all
buildings that are 25,000 square feet or more, of which there are 50,000
citywide, will be required to make efficiency upgrades that lower their
energy usage and emissions or they will face steep penalties.

Fake Hate: Jewish Family Staged Anti-Semitic Attack Against Themselves, Vandalized Own Business


Winnipeg, Canada: The three owners of the BerMax kosher cafe were arrested after calling the police and claiming that the female owner was assaulted and that the business was spray-painted with hate-related graffiti by attackers. Police believe that the report of the robbery was staged and that the property damage was also falsely reported as being done by outside suspects. -GEG

The Jewish owners of a kosher cafe in Winnipeg have been charged by police for staging a violent attack against themselves and spray-painting their own business with antisemitic graffiti.

Their cafe was the target of repeated antisemitic vandalism the past few months.

From The Canadian Press:

What looked like an anti-Semitic attack at a Winnipeg cafe
that drew public concern and political condemnation was not a hate crime
but an alleged sham staged by owners of the business, police said
Wednesday.

Officers responded last Thursday to a report that a woman who worked at
the BerMax Caffe and Bistro was assaulted and that the business was
vandalized and spray-painted with hate-related graffiti. It was the
night before Passover.

After a lengthy investigation involving 25 officers and 1,000 hours of
investigative work, police said they charged the three owners of the
cafe — including the woman who was reportedly assaulted — with public
mischief.

Police announced on Facebook they arrested BerMax Caffe and Bistro owners Alexander Berent, 56, Oxana Berent, 48 and Maxim Berent, 29.

These individuals are all owners of the café. They are each
charged with one count of Public Mischief and released. Public Mischief
(CCC 140 (1)) occurs when an individual, with intent to mislead, causes a
peace officer to enter on or continue an investigation based on a false
statement or causing another person to be suspected of having committed
an offence to divert suspicion from themselves.

Investigators believe that the initial report of a robbery was staged.
Further, the anti-semitic graffiti and vandalism were also falsely
reported as being done by outside suspects.

“The restaurant
was founded in 2015 by the Berent family – Jewish-Ukrainian immigrants
who came to Canada in 2005 by way of Israel – and was operated by Oxana
Berent and her son, Maxim,” CJN reports.

Transgender Teen Gets Court Order Against Father for ‘Misgendering’ Her


A British Columbia Supreme Court justice issued a court order to force the father of a 14-year old biological girl who is transitioning to a male to stop “misgendering” the youth. The father countered that the move would violate his rights to free speech and thought. The father’s appeal is slated to be heard by B.C. Court of Appeals on May 14. At stake is a precedent set by last month’s ruling that children have a right to transition and parents must respect their chosen gender, pronouns, and name. -GEG

“I find that his father’s expressions of rejection of AB’s gender identity constitutes family violence.”

A transgender teenager last week convinced a Canadian judge to make his dad stop “misgendering” him.

In the April 15 protection order,
British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Francesca Marzari’s said the
father was “harming his child” by refusing to accept his male gender
identity. She barred him from continuing to “misgender” or “deadname”
the biological girl in public or private.

In court documents, the father was identified only as CD, and the 14-year-old child was called AB.

“I
find that his father’s expressions of rejection of AB’s gender
identity, both publicly and privately, constitutes family violence
against AB,” Marzari said. “Finally, I find that CD’s conduct in this
regard is persistent and unlikely to cease in the absence of a clear
order to restrain it.”

Poway, California: Synagogue Shooter Killed One and Injured Four More


Poway, California: John Earnest, a white male, is the suspect in the synagogue shooting that killed a woman and left three more people injured. The shooting took place exactly six months after the Tree of Life Shooting in Pittsburgh. Authorities say they found Earnest’s manifesto that blames Jews for white genocide that he allegedly posted anonymously on 8chan. The author of this manifesto claimed that he burned a mosque in Escondido a week after the New Zealand shooting. -GEG

Several people were shot on Saturday at a San Diego synagogue. Police have one man in custody.

The shooting took place exactly six months after the Tree of Life Shooting in Pittsburgh.

One of the victims is said to be the synagogue’s Rabbi, Yisorel Goldstein, who founded the Chabad center in 1986.

There is at least one fatality.
The mayor of Poway is calling this a hate crime.

Police searched a home in San Diego today following the shooting.

We have come across what appears to be a
manifesto for the Poway synagogue shooter. He identifies as an anon from
8chan’s /pol/ board. He claims he was inspired by the Christchurch
shooting. His manifesto is filled with shitposting and should not be
taken literally. https://t.co/a3QlN8dsDy

California Mayor Admits Local Government Has “Lost Control” of 5G Rollout


Danville, California: The Town Council voted four to one to block a permit for an upcoming 5G wireless installation by Verizon, opening the town to possible lawsuits from the carrier. According to the FCC’s regulations, local governing bodies are not allowed to consider health risks when making decisions about 5G installations. Instead, cities and towns can only regulate cell sites based on the aesthetics and placement of the devices. Danville Mayor Robert Storer says that the federal government and its partners in Big Wireless have usurped local control of communities and that it’s time to take a stand – law suit or no law suit. -GEG

During a recent city council meeting the Mayor of Danville,
California admitted that the council had “lost control” of the 5G
rollout to the federal government and Big Wireless.

On March 6, the Danville Town Council voted four
to one to block a permit for an upcoming small cell wireless
installation by Verizon. During the meeting, Danville Mayor Robert
Storer stated that the vote was an effort to stand up to the federal
government and telecommunications companies, like Verizon.

The Danville Town Council’s decision to deny the
land use-permit for the small cell opens the town to possible lawsuits
from Verizon.

“We’ve made a lot of difficult decisions over the years, and this
one is right up there in my top three. But that is exactly why somebody
elects us to do the right things,”
Mayor Robert Storer said during the council meeting. “We’ve
lost local control and this says: ‘You know what? We are sick of this
and we’re not going to just sit here and be bulled over.’ We say no; we
play our cards out. We’ve been in lawsuits before.”

The installation of small cell sites is taking place around the
nation as the U.S. government and telecommunications companies roll out
5th Generation—or 5G—cellular technology. The
new technology is expected to herald the beginning of Smart Cities,
where driverless cars, pollution sensors, cell phones, traffic lights,
and thousands of other devices interact in what is known as “The Internet of Things”.
However, there have been a number of health and privacy concerns raised
by opponents of the rapidly advancing 5G technology expansion.

The controversial vote came after the Town Council had been inundated
with complaints and concerns from Danville residents who worry the new
small cell site and other 5G related infrastructure could have negative
health effects. The installation of small cells and other 5G
infrastructure is opposed by Danville Citizens for Responsible Growth (DCRG), a local group who has been putting pressure on the Town Council since at least October 2018.

That month the Danville Planning Commission approved a land-use
permit for the small cell site owned by Verizon. On November 2, DCRG
filed an appeal challenging the approval. The group has been battling
Danville officials since and was successful in convincing most of the
council to vote against the permit. However, despite many of Danville’s
residents expressing concerns regarding health, the council voted
against the permit because the chosen location was intrusive.
