Putin: First Soviet government was mostly Jewish

Speaking at Moscow’s Jewish Museum, Russian president says politicians ‘were guided by false ideological considerations’

TA — Russian President Vladimir Putin said that at least 80 percent of the members of the first Soviet government were Jewish.
“I thought about something just now: The decision to nationalize this library was made by the first Soviet government, whose composition was 80-85 percent Jewish,” Putin said June 13 during a visit to Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.         
Putin was referencing the library of Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, the late leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The books, which are claimed by Chabad representatives in the United States, began being moved to the museum in Moscow this month.
According to the official transcription of Putin’s speech at the museum, he went on to say that the politicians on the predominantly Jewish Soviet government “were guided by false ideological considerations and supported the arrest and repression of Jews, Russian Orthodox Christians, Muslims and members of other faiths. They grouped everyone into the same category.
“Thankfully, those ideological goggles and faulty ideological perceptions collapsed. And today, we are essentially returning these books to the Jewish community with a happy smile.”
Widely seen as the first Soviet government, the Council of People’s Commissars was formed in 1917 and comprised 16 leaders, including chairman Vladimir Lenin, foreign affairs chief Leon Trotsky and Joseph Stalin, who was in charge of the People’s Commissariat of Nationalities.

Scott Walker's new law in Wisconsin forces "Catholic" hospitals to grant admitting privileges to abortionists or lose federal funding!

Catholic hospitals must have relationship with abortionists or violate federal law: Wisconsin AG

August 7, 2013 ( – Any Catholic hospital that refuses to grant admitting privileges to an abortionist would "be in active violation of federal law," according to a court brief filed by Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen last week.

U.S. law "provides that hospitals accepting federal funds may not discriminate against a physician because that physician has participated in or refused to participate in abortions," it states.

Under a new law signed by Governor Scott Walker, abortionists must have admitting privileges within 30 miles of their abortion office.

Three Catholic hospitals – Columbia-Saint Mary’s, the Hospital Sisters’ Health System, and Wheaton Franciscan Health-care – had indicated, due to the tenets of their faith, they would not grant such privileges.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice holds that any facility that receives federal funds would lose all such money if it refused to allow abortionists to admit the victims of botched procedures.
Planned Parenthood has stated at least seven of its abortionists are seeking such rights.

Last Friday, U.S. District Judge William Conley granted a preliminary injunction against the state law until November on the grounds that it would impose an undue burden on women by closing abortion facilities.

Conley, an Obama appointee, ruled the law provided "substantial likelihood" of causing "irreparable harm" to women by closing abortion offices in Madison and Appleton, forcing women to drive farther to procure the procedure.

Presently, 71 percent of women nationwide drive 25 miles or less to procure an abortion. The median distance to an abortion clinic is 15 miles.

The state filed an appeal of Conley's injunction with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday.
