Why every Jew should know about Sosua, the Dominican Republic Haven for Jewish Refugees fleeing Nazi persecution?

by Terry Richards

Founded in 1938 as a haven for Jews escaping Nazi persecution (After the United States refused 800 Jews on a ship from entering the United States as Refugees) Sosua was an isolated settlement on the coast of the Dominican Republic that offered refuge to approximately 800 hundred German, Austrian and Polish Jews from 1940 – 1945.
Having made good friends with Freddy Milz in 1966, the son of Jewish refugees from Sosua whose family moved to Miami Beach where I was living and had grown up, this Jewish Writer finally visited and lived in Sosua for 4-months during the winter of 1986 and 1987. It was not only an enjoyable vacation experience but also an amazing ethnic and educational experience for me, and I got to see Freddy who was living in Sosua again part-time who I had not seen for about 8-years.

Richard Lee Davis

Richard Lee Davis

If only all VA employees treated Veteran-Patients like Richard Lee Davis did!

by Terry Richards

LOS ANGELES, CA – As a nationally recognized Veterans Rights Advocate for the last 26-years, and as a Veterans Affairs Journalist for the last 19-years, I feel compelled to tell this story because of the extraordinary and outstanding performance of Veteran Patient Care I personally observed on at least 3-separate occasions by 5-year Navy Veteran Richard Lee Davis when Davis worked as a Gurney Bus Escort in the Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) Program at the VA Medical Center West Los Angeles transporting mostly elderly and very frail Nursing Home Patients on Gurneys to and from appointments at the main hospital in 2015 and 2016.
 
The respect, dignity, and empathy in which I observed Davis treat these Veteran Patients was unlike anything I have ever observed before at any VA Medical Center, not only by any other CWT worker but by any VA employee in the same or similar job capacity. And it was obvious to me that these Patients felt the same way I do, and knew that they had somebody very special indeed, caring for them.
 
On top of all of the above, Davis within the scope of appropriate humor would make them laugh and smile, and therefore, for a moment at least, Davis helped them mitigate and expunge the pain and suffering they were experiencing.

“This was a hack-riddled election,” she said, pointing to hacking before the vote of political organizations and individual email accounts, as well as recent media reports citing concerns by computer security experts.

Will Trump dump Press completely during his Presidency?

by Terry Richards

There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution which requires that the President invite the Press to the White House for News Briefings, or for him to deliver the State of The Union Message before Congress on live TV, or for them to be able to Travel on Air Force One with him.

And As far as Air Force One is concerned he could say to the Press if you want to follow me, you will have to pay for your own transportation on an Airline, Train, Bus or Car to get to wherever I go?

As a Member of the Press, I would not feel in the least slighted at all if Trump delivered all his messages/briefings about what he was accomplishing on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook or Trump  TV. But then again I don’t need rating’s since I don’t sell any advertisement’s or make any money operating my Veterans Blog of Veterans News Service Los Angeles. In fact, virtually all the costs come out of my own pocket.

There is bright-side to Trump’s potential new method of briefings for Blog owners like me as well as the rest of the American People in that we don’t have to wait for the major TV, Radio, and printed News Media to release the information on what the President is doing. And as strict Constitutionalist, I don’t find anything legally wrong with it either.
