Breaking! 5WPR Impersonated Uri L'Tzedek On Iowa Blog – Comment Traced To 5WPR SVP Juda Engelmayer's Home

The blog, Essential Estrogen, is published by Iowa Independent reporter Lynda Waddington.

Lynda just published a feature for the Iowa Independent on…

… 5WPR's online identity theft and sockpuppeting. Here is a bit of the piece:

…In addition to the postings at FailedMessiah.com and other Jewish blogs, Engelmayer also used a home account to impersonate the grassroots Jewish organization Uri L'Tzedek on Essential Estrogen. The comment, made in response to an article detailing the indictment of two Agriprocessors' supervisors, was the full text of the Uri L'Tzedek press release that lifted the group's boycott on Rubashkin labels. The comment was posted nearly 10 hours after another thread had already announced the boycott being lifted.

Jim Fallon, a person to which Agriprocessors management had previously directed press inquiries, told Iowa Independent that his firm, CMA, had not had communications with the company for nearly three weeks.

"CMA is not involved with any public relations activities involving Agriprocessors' online presence," Fallon wrote in e-mail. "Our role was to help the company communicate the activities and decision made to enhance its immigration compliance in response to the ICE worksite enforcement action. We have not been engaged in any communications activities with Agriprocessors since July 1, 2008."

Although Menachem Lubinsky, a spokesman for Agriprocessors and chief executive officer of the kosher industry consulting firm Lubicom, originally told The Jewish Forward that he expected 5W to deal with "negative publicity and blogs," he had no such comments when contacted by Iowa Independent.

"My firm has been and is still doing public relations work for Agriprocessors, and we are the contact for media inquiries," Lubinsky wrote in an e-mail. "On the subject of 5WPR, the company will have no further information on this subject."

Rosenberg's research into the IP addresses used to post comments on his blog indicates that at least 40 comments were made from computers on the 5W network. In addition to Allen, two other individuals known to that blogging community were impersonated.

"On the subject of 5WPR, the company will have no further information on this subject." What does this mean? That 5W is no longer working for Agriprocessors?

Of course not.

It just means Lubinsky and Rubashkin are refusing to comment on 5WPR's continued role as Agriprocessors' hit men.

These guys are the Kosher Keystone Kops (acronym unintended). With enemies like these, who needs friends?

Is Uri leZedek too spineless to issue a condemnation? Maybe they don't want to upset their guru Avi Weiss and his good friend Ronn Atrocious-ian.

Or maybe they were silenced "Mafia Style".

This Juda post is not as bad as the Rabbi Morris Allan (sic) posts. At least here, these were the actual words of Uri L'Tzedek, not a fraudulent post like the others.

In other words, Lubinsky is only willing to talk to gullible people who will let him launch into a propaganda speech about Rubashkin. Don't bother calling if you have any hard hitting questions.

If anyone has emails from Lubinsky / Lubicom / KosherToday or Diversified, please forward them to Shmarya and the JTA so they can compare the IP to some more of the sockpuppetry.

"Honesty is crucial. Goodness is necessary. Business relies on it. Deal honestly and in time, those you were upfront with may become your closest business allies. When people spend their money to make money, they want to do it with people whom past positive experiences shone bright. The adage of being nice to those you meet on the way up because they’ll be the ones you may see on the way down is right, but not enough. They’ll also be the ones who help you continue rising."

by Juda Engelmayer

How does Juda live with himself? I guess 5Wanker money helps.

Good Day. If you think taking care of yourself is selfish, change your mind. If you don't, you're simply ducking your responsibilities. Help me! I find sites on the topic: International business degrees. I found only this - degree for business management. Business degree, every restaurant hostile or the french has to start themselves begun almost as to jobs with bad governmental ones. You are an population to reading who has fairly done again for a business, business degree. Thank :rolleyes: Kerrick from Palau.
