MM " Why is the CIA recruiting at that gathering in Houston? "

Until that agency is cleaned out like the DoJ should be, why would you assume they are "collecting" resumes, not selling secrets or seeking jobs for themselves?

They are just hiring 50 more Snowden's and reality winners that way.

Well, Old Lurker, I have to agree, but when it hit me right in the face I felt compelled to post it here.

I don't think the CIA is as valuable as it once was, and may, in fact, be a Trojan Horse.

Eight years of Brennan is certain to have filled it with operatives as reliable as the agents of the FBI.

Title: Why do Republicans still back Trump? The answer is simple: Attitude and gratitude

clarice

From a woman who wishes to keep her identity private because of harassment:DEAR JEWISH AMERICAN LIBERALS,
It’s time for the talk.
From one Jew to another. From one parent/grandparent to another. From one who utters “Never Again!” to another. From one witnessing the vile anti-Semitic floats in Belgian parades to another. From one in horror watching the U.K. descend into 100 monthly anti-Semitic incidents to another. And from one seeing, in disbelief, the rise of anti-Semitism in the U.S. to another. We may not agree on much else, but this outrage we have in common.
You are the resounding 72-74% majority of the 5.4 Million American Jewry who have backed the Democratic Party since the sun has risen in the East. We get it; you’re for minority rights because you will forever identify as a minority. You’re forever for JFK , even though his brand of liberalism is long gone and has actually morphed into modern conservatism. You’re forever for FDR, even though it was the Republican Ronald Regan who delivered approximately 3,000,000 Soviet Jews from bondage of Anti-Semitic leftist oppression.
The Democratic Party of the 1950s was the party of the underdog, and you’re forever the underdog, in your mind, in your memory and by virtue of our tiny demographic. Your parents and grandparents have been married to the Democratic party since before you were born, and you can’t let go of what has been engrained in you with mother’s milk. Understandable.
Today is 2019, not the 1950s. And after the devastating failure of your Party to stand with you (as Jews) unequivocally against the rabid Nazi-era anti-Semitism of Democratic Congresswoman Omar, you stand in the final hour of a critical decision, depleted of all excuses for your political loyalty. And you know it.
We’re in the Situation Room of the 11th hour. Let’s connect all the dots together.
First, your history:
• At the UN, your favorite President Barack Obama, famously called for Israel to return to 1967 Borders. You said nothing and continued to exalt his virtue.
• The same man orchestrated UN’s resolution #2334, de facto proclaiming most of Israel illegitimate in Jewish hands. You said nothing and continued to exalt his virtue.
• On his way out of office, the same Democratic POTUS released a whopping $150 Billion to the mullahs of Iran who have a single clearly stated goal; washing Israel out to sea with their nukes. You said nothing and continued to sing the 44th praises.
• You watched as Obama whispered to French President Sarkozy “…You are sick of him, but I have to work with him every day.”, mocking PM Benjamin Netenyahu of Israel. You said nothing and continued to applaud Obama.
• You watched the spiraling souring of America-Israel relations under Obama’s leadership. You said nothing and continued the love affair with Obama.
• You knew of Obama’s $350,000 interference in Israel’s national election to subvert the democratic process. You looked the other way and said nothing.
• You never once heard the word “Jihad” leave Obama’s lips when describing Islamic terror attacks against Jews in France. You said nothing and continued to praise him in your liberal synagogues.
…Because Obama is your guy. Because he had the visible color of the underdog. Because the Democratic party is the perceived home of your ancestors.
Those ancestors are dead, but here is your record:
• President Donald Trump, by virtue of the American Embassy move, underscores Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. You instantly end your supine silence and find your voice in loud opposition to the most logical, lawful, courageous and Israel-loving politic. With trembling knees, you proclaim “he’s angering the Arabs” in your posturing speeches on Shul Bimahs, in schools, social media and in endless editorials. When WW3 failed to occur, you retreat back to your silence, having sufficiently defamed the President.
• President Trump reaffirms a record-setting annual budget of $4 Billion to Israel, including a $200M increase in 2019, for the next 10 years for a total of $40 Billion. What do you do? You bash the President in choir with CNN.
• President Trump defunds Israel-denying UNRWA. You continue to bash the President.
• President Trump defunds murderous Mahmoud Abbas to the tune of $250 Million per year. You continue to bash the President.
• You watch Trump’s appointee Nikki Haley staunchly defend Israel at the UN, time and time again. Speaking against UN’s anti-Israel biases & infinite resolutions of condemnation, like no one has ever before, Trump’s envoy to the UN stuns the world with her courage. Yet you continue to bash the President.
• President Trump stands alone against feckless Europe in ending the disastrous Obama era of Nuclear Appeasement with Iran, undoing the damage done by the your favorite ex-President. Ignoring this courageous unpopular move and Iran’s devotion to the annihilation of the Jewish people as its number one cause, you continue to bash the President.
• In every State of the Union and UN address, you hear President Trump exalt Israel, condemn the Holocaust, and explicitdly exclaim the non-negotiated American support for Israel under his administration. Backed not by his words, but by his deeds! ….You? You continue to bash the President.
• Holocaust Survivors and American religious Jewry unreservedly embrace the President with warm support and voter presence. Speaking at Trump’s commemorations of Jewish events & important dates, celebrating Hannukah with singing and candle lighting by Trump grandchildren and children, in full view to the world from the White House. First occurrences ever in history! And you? You continue to bash the President.
• You know of Trump Family long-standing personal financial support for Israel, Fred Trump’s designation of NY buildings for subsidization of Post-Holocaust Jews, complete with a funded synagogue inside. But you continue to bash the President.
• In August of 2015, Donald Trump's own private jet carried a critically ill 3-year-old Jewish boy from California to New York for medical treatment, when commercial airline refused to fly him. You? You continue to bash the President.
• You’ve even watched the First Daughter, The First observantly Jewish Daughter of the Oval Office (another first in history!) pray at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, along with her father, the grandfather of this, de facto, First Jewish Family that every Friday night observes Shabbat. Amazingly, you continue to bash the President to the sound of the CNN drum.
• You, the liberal Jews of America, continue to bash the man who has never once said, let alone done, anything remotely anti-Semitic. You go as far as partaking in discussions and events that compare Trump to Hitler and the KKK. You sign petitions and you echo the cherry-picked sound-bytes of MSNBC’s three-year smear campaign.
How you vote and what you do:
• You vote for the party of Louis Farrakhan, who only months ago called you “termites”!
• You vote for the party whose elected politicians announce that you have duel loyalty, the oldest most vilifying anti-Semitic charge of genocidal racism.
• You vote for the party that can’t remove a repeatedly outspoken rabid anti-Semite from membership in the Foreign Affairs Committee, which sets policy with Israel and its friendly neighbors.
• You vote for the party that dilutes and shoves its unhinged pre-Holocaust brand of anti-Semitism under the table, unable to pass a simple resolution against their hate of YOU.
• While chanting anti-Trump slogans, you march with anti-Israel activitist Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, women who rub shoulders with Farakkhan & Al Sharpton, men who proclaim your children to be “Satanic Jews”.
• You vote for the party of Bernie Sanders, the man who defends Omar’s anti-Semitism and Palestinian militancy against Israel’s citizens. The same Socialist Sanders who once falsely accused Israel of a 10,000 dead-Palestinians genocide. The same Sanders who thinks your children “standing in queues for food is a good idea”.
• Astonishingly, you lend your vote to the party of BDS advocacy against Israel...!
• You stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who praises Jeremy Corbyn, accuses Israel of occupation, and now stands in official support of Congresswoman Omar.
• You even vote for the party whose elected officials tell you (the Jews) that you and your ilk have “hypnotized the world”...!
• You vote with the party whose elected official may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood charities and its affiliates. Same officials who participate as keynote speakers at events for the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups IRUSA and CAIR.
• You vote for the party whose loyal College Campus Academia ubiquitously advances anti-Israel positions & Israel Apartheid weeks, and writes endless editorial pages against Israel’s “aggression”. The piously liberal Academia that prevents Israeli speakers from speaking on campuses. The Academia that poisonously convinced your children that bashing Israel does not amount to anti-Semitism.
• You vote for the party that morally equates Israel to terror groups and Islamic countries of horrendous human rights abuses.
• You vote for the party whose right arm, the media, exalts the Palestinian cause vis-à-vis Hamas terror on Israeli borders and streets.
• You vote “democrat” alongside anti-Israel groups like Jewish Voices for Peace, J-Street and George Soros.
• You vote for the party, whose members tried to shamelessly tie the Pittsburgh murders to President Trump and even tried to prevent him from visiting the aftermath.
• You voted for Hillary Clinton, Democratic Presidential for 2016, who by her own admission, was mentored by KKK member Senator Byrd. Photographed and videoed kissing the man while he was alive and proudly eulogizing him at his funeral.
• You vote for the party that gave us the KKK, David Duke and white supremacy. All the while, relentlessly brainwashing the public to tie this Democrat evil to the Republicans.
• You vote for the party that continues to ridicule and defame President Trump in order to keep the hate in you alive.
• You vote for the party that unanimously voted against Lincoln’s abolishment of slavery, championed by the Republicans.
• You vote for the party that stood against the 1964 Act for Civil Rights aimed to benefit American blacks.
• You vote against the party (GOP) who elected first ever African American Senators.
• You vote against the Republican Party that just championed and passed the anti-BDS measure with notable Democrats in dissent.
Going back to its Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow days, the beloved Democrat Party of your ancestors has always been a hotbed of antisemitism — a party that has, for decades, tolerated and feted Louis Farrakhan while embracing Rev. Al Sharpton. A Party that is now in the firm grip of Congresswomen Tlaib, Omar and AOC. A party that is breaking free from the hiding of its genetic antisemitism.
So it isn’t the disenfranchised, marginalized-by-all 10,000 white supremacists (your party’s own embryo) you should be worried about. It’s the sweeping reach of the politically “correct” anti-Semitic Democratic Party into our collective psyche, our culture, our schools, our social norms, and our public opinion you should be disturbed about. Millions of malleable minds ingesting normalized anti-Semitism is a far greater threat to your children’s future than a one-time march of a unanimously hated group of thugs.
Your Party has failed you. It failed everyone it pretends to champion with its empty but loud rhetoric: the middle class, the minorities and the poor. It has conditioned you to see yourself not as proud Jews, but as underdogs only, indoctrinated to believe in the Democratic Party’s deliverance, irrespective of its dismal track record. Like you, this is the brainwash much of Soviet Jewish citizenry under the Proletariat of the old Soviet Union bought into, only a few decades earlier.
“Divisive” is not the work of the most Jewish President U.S. of A. has ever elected, but the push of Democratic Party’s agenda that thrives on three wings of hate: “Blame it on the Evangelicals”, “Blame it on the Russians” and “Blame it on Trump”. The party which now officially and proudly adds the 4th wing of hate to their platform, the one that you can’t run from or double-talk against; “Blame it on the Jews”.
Your visceral hate has been meticulously cultivated by the daily brainwash of the Democratic Party’s liberal media. In 2016, the Democratic Party received a total donation of $1,020,816, given by 1,160 employees of the three major broadcast television networks (NBC, CBS, ABC), while the Republican Party received only $142,863 via 193 donations from employees of these same organizations. And that's before we mention CNN and its boss who is toying with the idea of running for Democratic leadership. Are we tying the dots yet?
You stand with the party that has exhumed every hatred & division across racial & identity lines known to man. All to secure your loyalty and obedience as the perpetual underdog.
Today, on March 8th, 2019, you stand with the party that’s incapable of taking the smallest symbolic stand against anti-Semitism, let alone eradicate it from its ranks.
You stand with the party that stands against you.
You stand with the party that continues to elect Islamic and anti-Semitic politicians who propagate anti-Semitism proudly, even though your voter ballots are too few to matter to them in any election.
Yet, you stand against the party who takes up your cause and shows unequivocal support for Israel, and whose President wakes up to daily abuse for his pro-Israel, pro-Jewish stance, all despite your hate of him and your utterly insignificant voter power.
You’ve been duped. But believing a lie is easier than admitting you’ve been lied to. There’s no longer any ambiguity or defensibility of the Democratic Party and we all know it. They have sold you out, because your numbers are insignificant in the voting booth. And because another minority they can’t upset provides them with a much bigger voting block. You have a choice to continue on this path of self-desecration, dragging the rest of us to 1930s Germany with you, or you can walk away now, before the next election.
Your other option, to comfortably retreat right back into the lazy boy of your trembling Jewish knees and once again vote Democrat in 2020, still remains. Telling yourself the same old lie “Everyone is anti-Semitic. Why change?”
Just remember this; When you’re no longer at the dinner table, you’re on the menu. And you’re certainly no longer at the dinner table with the Democratic Party, Islam is.
What legacy are you leaving your grandchildren? The legacy of the new but all-too-familiar German Jews with heads in the sand? Or the legacy of the 21st Century American Maccabees? Your clock is running out.
As the majority block of the collective American Jewish vote, you have the power to determine how history and all our children judge us. Make the right choice.

Hi all,

anonamom helpfully reached out to talk about the possibility of donations to the Anchorage Public Library in honor of daddy, and specifically whether or not we could opt to send them books to be added to the collection (since daddy often mentioned being frustrated at not being able to find titles he was interested in). I believe some JOMers may have already sent a few items.

I took a look and found their donation policy:
http://www.anchoragelibrary.org/media/1290/donationpp04-12.pdf

Like my library's, it is noncommittal. They cannot guarantee that donated books, even if brand new, will be added to the collection. This doesn't surprise me, as most policies are similar. Many people would love to donate entire estates' worth of books (for a tax write-off, or not) and this represents quite a lot of labor and space for the library, which most libraries don't have in surplus.

The Anchorage library has an annual book sale, and the policy seems to indicate that most book donations will be sold.

I have not yet gotten in touch with them directly, and I'm happy to do so.

However, since Barbara asked that donations be made to the Anchorage Library Foundation - which is a separate organization - I wonder if we should consider donating funds in daddy's name, rather than gifts of books. We know that daddy loved his library, and not only for the collections.

Would love to know what you all think.

This is not related to the rant, but we have here at JOM a liberal (groan) sprinkling of former Dems, former anti-VietWar, etc, etc.
When I meet 2019-style wacko Dems whose personal history I know, I can't help but think "You are still in the 1970s. And back in the '70s you weren't with the Left". There's this time warp going on, and I guess they wish they had participated. Now, decades later, when there is no risk they do.

Glad to hear that the Dem convention will be in Milwaukee. That should help Trump carry the state again. I have not watched a Dem convention since 1968, but i'm planning to catch every moment this year. Instead of boring speeches by candidates claiming to be for all the traditional American values, we may see out and proud nutty socialists calling for medicare for all and arguing over Israel.
I can't wait to see the prime time speeches by AOC and Ilhan. There may never be a time like this again.

True, johns. It's an amazing time when Dems are being honest about their plans for the country. I just hope voters don't take them up on it.

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program is eliminated in the proposed budget.

That program, signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2007, allows not-for-profit and government employees to have their federal student loans canceled after 10 years of on-time payments. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau estimates that up to one-quarter of American workers could be eligible.

Were you ever in the studio listening to music when the music director, Wade, was doing a show? What a psycho. Dr. Bill had a restraining order taken out by his ex girlfriend after she went lezzo. There were a couple interesting people in that pile of misfit toys, particularly Chris Rockmore (perfect radio name) who had a show, The Mishmash Hour, where he would take requests to play songs but also to stop playing ones that were on, which got him a lot of outraged callers. Significantly he was an Art Institute student. Michigan Mom named her show after the wrestling Road Warriors so she was kind of cool, plus her real life husband was Denny Sanders of WMMS, who she steadfastly defended against a bunch of shitheads who never worked a day in their pampered lives and weren't nearly as "edgy" as they thought.

Via Insty...this is just beyond sad:

Tendler survived two implantable defibrillators throughout his life. But while on his third, he started to fade. After he was provided painkillers by doctors, Tendler voiced his final thoughts.

"It just was quiet for a little while," Walter Tendler told the news outlet, "and then he just sits up in bed halfway and looks at me and he goes, 'S***, I'm not going to see the Mueller report, am I?' And that was really the last coherent thing that he said."

Richard Armstrong, a 94-year-old currently in hospice care in New Jersey, related to Tendler’s sentiments.

"I know exactly how he feels. I feel the same way. I've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer," Armstrong told NPR. "I was hoping to live to see the outcome of what I think it should be—justice. I'll be surprised and disappointed if it isn't.”

After seeing Tendler’s words—shared on Twitter by Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution—Kristina Makansi, who lives in Arizona, thought about her mother who passed away at the age of 94 in January.

"When I saw that tweet about the Mueller report and the old man on his deathbed, I thought, Oh my gosh, that's the kind of thing that my mother would say," she said. "I think she really wanted to see that justice was done... and that the investigation was allowed to proceed without any shenanigans and obstruction."

How sad must their lives been that their biggest regret at the end was not missing time with children and grandchildren, or never seeing the Sistine Chapel or whatever, but that they won't get to read the freaking Mueller Report?

True enough. Still, in these debased times even a semblance of a budgetary process is welcome relief from the endless parade of Continuing Resolutions.

A website I frequent has a little counter-box embedded that reads "America's Do-Nothing Senate! 3603 days without a budget"

I don't know if that's still true, didn't a budget get passed last year? But the sentiment is still valid.

Jim, I hear you about the semblance of a budget process. But the word "process" implies a first step, then and second step...then an N step.

POTUS makes the first step, and he did.

There will be no second step, hence no "process".

There will be lots of idiots shouting sound and fury, signifying nothing and then sometime well after the end of this fiscal year, a, or several CR's will be signed so that people can fly to the Superbowl.

My problems include, of course, the feckless Rs in Congress who will stab Trump in the back as usual. But I also point out that Trump himself knows this blueprint has zero chance of building anything, so he has nothing to lose by stuffing it full of red meat for his base, so I personally can't even use it to see where his actual heart is. (Sorry, the failure to impose law and order, charges, and "she'd be in jail" makes me a tad "jaded". But happy to be proven wrong.)

By submitting a budget that actually reduces non defense spending Trump eliminates pretty much the last pretentious leg the nevertrump jackdaws have to stand on = "he's not a real conservative...like us."

We were sitting around the table and my 5 -year- old asked, "Why does Trump hate gays and people of color?"

What was that meme where the guy was talking to his little daughter about the election and just burst into tears sobbing?

I have a call in to the director of the Anchorage Library--I think.
I've yet to have human contact. ;-) Left a message.


My desire is to have specific titles he mentioned that the library did not have be shelved and available to his fellow citizens and voters.
I'll let you know if that is possible.

Dave's moonbat story reminds me of this movie: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanboys_(film)

You could just tell your dying moonbat Trump hating friend that the House voted to impeach him. What's one more lie?

Dave, please quickly post four or five more things so that GIF moves up off my screen.

We were sitting around the table and my 5 -year- old asked, "Why does Trump hate gays and people of color?"

and in ten years, that 15 year old will either be changing its gender, anorexic, cutting, depressed, or suffering some other sign of severe anxiety.

A five year old should know absolutely nothing about Trump except that he is president!

Maybe we shouldn't care that they want to kill their babies up to and after birth. Their genes shouldn't be replicated.

Daddy, why have gays and POC internalized the commands of their oppressors?

Apparently Facebook is now blocking all ZeroHedge links, saying that the site violates their Community Standards.


They must have criticized Facebook once too often.

Honestly Mr Iggy I'm starting to come around to the notion that all so called conservatism does is oppose the party in power. They don't stand for anything really. The so called conservatives get power and they don't do jack shit.

Reagan campaigned to end the Department of Education basically in it's infancy and he doubled its budget.

Clinton is the only president in memory until Trump to cut anything and balance a budget. Of course so called conservatives like Mr Newt will take credit but I'm not so sure anymore.

I'm enjoying Thomas Sowell's "Discrimination and Disparities" and, since it's unrealistic that everyone will read it, I'd like to post a few snips. The book discusses the phenomenon whereby some groups come out ahead of other groups.

This also happens within communities, such as subgroups of blacks inside black neighborhoods. From page 54 and following:

There had long been a small black community in Chicago in the nineteenth century, before the great migrations of blacks form the South in the twentieth century led to severalfold increases in the number of blacks in that city ... the local black press denounced the new arrivals from the South as vulgar, rowdy, unwashed and criminal. ... fears as to how the new black arrivals from the South would behave, and how the local white population would react ...turned out to be all too well founded. ... Some Northern communities where black children had for years been going to the same schools as white children, now began to impose racial segregation in the schools ... Oberlin College and Harvard, where black students had lived in dormitories with white students before, now excluded black students from their dormitories.

Mr Sowell posts evidence that both in the North and along the Pacific Coast an environment in which blacks were well integrated and on an upward path retrogressed after mass migration of lower-educated and "sketchy" blacks from the South occurred.

From pages 57-58, an anecdote in which black sociologist recounts whites worried when he got into the same elevator at the upscale apartment building where he lived:

I once sarcastically said to a nervous elderly couple who hesitated to exit the elevator because we were all getting off on the same floor "Not to worry, I am a Harvard professor and have lived in this building for nine years."

(Wilson notes the problem only occurs if he is casually dressed, never when he's wearing a tie. Sowell remarks:)
Professor Wilson's sarcasm and anger were directed at people whose reactions reflected a greater concern for their own personal safety than for his sensitivities. His account suggests they were not racists, for merely by wearing a tie he avoided tensions on both sides even though wearing a tie did not change his race.

From page 125 of Sowell's book:

...slavery must be among the leading candidates for the most appalling of all human institutions for it existed on every inhabited continent for thousands of years, as far back as the history of humans goes. Yet its full scope is often grossly underestimated today, when slavery is so often discussed as if it were confined to one race enslaving another race when in fact slavery existed virtually wherever it was feasible ... Europeans enslaved other Europeans for centuries before Europeans brought the first African slaves--purchased from other Africans who had enslaved them--to the Western Hemisphere. Nor was it unknown for Europeans to be enslaved by non-Europeans. Just one example were the European slaves brought to the coast of North Africa by pirates. These European slaves were more numerous than the African slaves brought to the United States and to the American colonies from which it was formed.

I'll be able to see the SMOKE FLAMES and RAINBOW FLAGS from my Downtown office window. The Bucks majority owner is a HEDGEFUNDPROG, his douche bag kid muscled this thru. Tom POTTY MOUTH Perez's wife is from Milwaukee.
I have 2 other offices outside the city. I may go in one day for the FREAK SHOW. The stench will be unbelievable.

GUS,

I demand pictures!

I am gobsmacked that they are actually walking towards the 1968 scenario.

1. Rising leftist wing of the party, who feels like enough isn't being done.
2. Activist groups assemble at the convention city.
3. "Moderate" gets nomination. (Substitute Biden for Humphrey.)
4. Riots ensue.
5. Loss in general election.

Bucks is a racist term for black men, GUS. I think we need to start making some calls.

They might say it's derived from Buccaneer but that's not the point...anymore.

You mean the DNR’s “earn-a-buck” wasn’t about CWD?
