The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) has been attacking common sense life protections for unborn children and their moms in a pro-life bill in the Kentucky house. We share an opinion piece written by a NCJW state lobbyist published in the Courier Journal. The distorted lies and propaganda in this opinion piece were repeated in house debate, so we reached out to the sponsor of the bill and the director of Kentucky Right to Life to offer our educational materials to help them respond to Jewish pro-abortion attacks on life and state representatives in the house. During the episode, we share Bonnie Chernin's rebuttal published in Renew America (her submission request to the Courier Journal was declined.) We also share the letter that the JPLF created to submit to the Journal; however, after learning that the editor has a history of declining pro-life pieces and submissions by out of state authors, we sent the letter to Kentucky Right to Life to educate Assembly members and to submit to the Journal, if possible. We share our March Flyer sporting Mordecai's appeal to Queen Esther to show courage and stand up for Jewish lives against state sponsored genocide. We appeal to Jews to show courage saving all unborn lives from vicious attacks by abortion profiteers and misguided Jewish propagandists.

We close the episode sharing our event flyers and the registration information for the event: BarbaraBeth54@protonmail.com or 347-566-7898. https://www.courier-journal.com/story/opinion/2022/03/04/how-faith-based-abortion-narrative-omits-jewish-pro-choice-values/9356391002/ http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/chernin/220307 https://jewishprolifefoundation.org/pro-life-blog/f/kentucky%E2%80%99s-legislation-aligns-with-jewish-life-affirming-torah

Los Angeles in the 1960s gave the world some of the greatest music in rock 'n' roll history: "California Dreamin'" by the Mamas and the Papas, "Mr. Tambourine Man" by the Byrds, and "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys, a song that magnificently summarized the joy and beauty of the era in three and a half minutes.But there was a dark flip side to the fun fun fun of the music, a nexus between naïve young musicians and the hangers-on who exploited the decade's peace, love, and flowers ethos, all fueled by sex, drugs, and overnight success. One surf music superstar unwittingly subsidized the kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr. The transplanted Texas singer Bobby Fuller might have been murdered by the Mob in what is still an unsolved case. And after hearing Charlie Manson sing, Neil Young recommended him to the president of Warner Bros. Records. Manson's ultimate rejection by the music industry likely led to the infamous murders that shocked a nation."Everybody Had an Ocean" chronicles the migration of the rock 'n' roll business to Southern California and how the artists flourished there. The cast of characters is astonishing—Brian and Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, eccentric producer Phil Spector, Cass Elliot, Sam Cooke, Ike and Tina Turner, Joni Mitchell, and scores of others—and their stories form a modern epic of the battles between innocence and cynicism, joy and terror. You'll never hear that beautiful music in quite the same way.William McKeen is the author of nine books and the editor of four more.
