- We learn of John Bailey’s exclusive coverage regarding what’s behind the maple leaf mystery swamping White Plains’ backyard?
- We gain John Bailey’s impression as he celebrates the opening of The Opus Westchester, an Autograph Collection hotel, managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, that has opened its doors in White Plains, New York. The Opus, inspired interiors by New York-based Celano Design Studio brings a luxurious residential flair.
- Westchester County Executive George Latimer delivered his fourth State of the County Address in the Legislative Chambers of the Board of Legislators. He promised to rejuvenate and resuscitate the county toward greater effectiveness and prominence. From 10-10:30am
Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst/Pundit speaks to the following issues/concerns:
- Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill) had on Sunday divulged that regardless of whether or not an independent commission is created to investigate the January 6th storming of the Capitol, the riot will impact the 2022 midterms “particularly if us as Republicans don’t take ownership for what happened.” Has the Republican Party been usurped by the resuscitated capacity of former President Donald Trump? Does Trump’s ascendancy undermine the integrity of the Republican Party and initiate the demise of the brand? Will such an outcome be the precursor to a third party? Does the present political milieu mimic the 1996 Ross Perot effort which created the Reform Party? The third party effort captivated the nation but did not garner even 10 percent of the National vote. Will the Republican Party gravitate around a candidate of their choosing and face a third party effort by Donald Trump?
- What is the prospect for Puerto Rican’s who are American citizens gaining statehood for the island of Puerto Rico?
- George Washington gave expression that one of the new nation’s first concrete expressions was that American religious freedom extended explicitly beyond the bounds of the Christian faith. “All possess alike,” he wrote, “liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.” His closing expression was “May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in his own due time and way everlastingly happy.” The key words—“every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree”—are taken from the book of Micah, chapter four. They’re a beautiful expression of peaceful flourishing in a pluralistic society. Washington referred to that verse almost 50 times in his correspondence. Lin Manuel-Miranda made them famous again by repeating them in the musical Hamilton. But it’s hard to think of a greater contradiction of the principles of Micah 4:4 and of Washington’s hope that Jews would enjoy the “good will” of America’s inhabitants than brutal attacks in the street, inflicted solely on the basis of faith. Street attacks represent a marker of exclusion and persecution not only of Jews, but African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Indigenous People, and a myriad of people of color. Has America’s past infused its past and is informing the present and future on an unending decline into bias, bigotry, violence, and murder? From 10:30-11am
David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh, Israel, author of seven books including his latest, Confronting Radicals: What America Can Learn From Israel, ( https://www.amazon.com/Confronting-Radicals-America-Learn-Israel/dp/1736201603 ) speaks to the rising tide of socialism, the chaos and anarchy that is morphing into totalitarianism that is undermining individual rights and freedoms. Has the Biden Administration increasingly capitulated to America’s enemies and may thereby be morphing into totalitarianism which exacerbates the taking away of individual rights and freedoms. David Rubin discusses the danger of the radical left in America and what can be learned from the Israeli experience.
We inquire if the cease fire is holding? If Biden’s pronouncement of a two state solution is the only remedy to the strife that has been unabated, what will that require of Hamas and Israel? Does Hamas subscribe to a peace plan? Has Hamas ever articulated a “peace plan” of its own or does their plan to push Jews into the sea remain unadulterated? Does the Left instigate anti-Semitism yet extol that social media are the culprits? Who is correct? We discuss the yet to be decided outcome of the most recent Israel national election. Do we yet know what the likely outcome will be?
Rubin is the Founder and President of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, established after he and his then three-year-old son were wounded in a terror attack. Learn more at www.DavidRubinIsrael.com or at https://www.ShilohIsraelChildren.org. from 11-11:30am
Tara Stukes, Children’s Village Program Manager, informs us that the month of May is Foster Care Awareness Month. We learn how the Covid pandemic has undermined the nearly 25,000 young people in New York State who require a safe and caring home. We learn that there is a nearly 30% diminution in foster parents. We learn the complex role Children’s Village plays in attending to the needs of children and parents who open their homes in nurturing children. We discuss the prevailing need. While the goal for most young people in foster care is that their placement is temporary and short term, and that they will be reunited with their families. For others in the foster care system, adoption is the ultimate goal. What creates the disparity of need of one from another? From 11:30am-12Noon.
