If There’s No Crime, There’s Always the Coverup

Because it’s not the crime…it’s the coverup.

Today’s zeitgeist dictates that once it has been established that no crime was committed you must work double plus good to uncover the coverup. If your rational brain can’t wrap itself around that construct let Madam Speaker explain:

"The fact is, in plain sight, in the public domain, this president is obstructing justice and he's engaged in a cover-up. And that could be an impeachable offense." – Nancy Pelosi, The Hill 

Nancy and her caucus of merry men and womyn are not the only ones who believe this with all their black hearts. The media is totally on board as well.

You may recall that the media first became enshrined as gods and powerbrokers as a result of Watergate, the scandal destined to take President Nixon down. Journalist types liked the taste of that kind of power – no, they loved it, became addicted to it as tyrants always do.

What may have started out as a noble effort grew into another grab for sheer raw power and the control that came with it. The media have subsequently used their power to advance their agenda and have attempted to take down every Republican president since – by any means necessary.

With Trump they finally thought they would be successful. He was to be the target that finally allowed them to bring the full force and authority of their power to bear and restore themselves as America’s avenging angel. When Plan A failed (thwart his candidacy and give the rubes another milk toast candidate to lose to Hillary) Plan B grew vicious. Resist, resist, resist and j'accuse. Undermine, undercut and annihilate him and his presidency. They would need help and they turned to the same source they used in Watergate: the intelligence community.

That’s right. There would have been no Watergate without Deep Throat. And after 30 years of Bob Woodward’s denial that his source was someone from the intelligence community it turned out that Deep Throat was none other than W. Mark Felt -  FBI Associate Director, #2 guy, at the time.

So let nobody be surprised when we confirm that the media conspired with the FBI, CIA and other Judicial Department agencies to take down the sitting president. Because facts be damned, they’ve got a job to do.

There’s your collusion right there, J. Edgar.

“There's this old line the wise folks in Washington have that ‘it's not the crime, but the cover-up.’ But only fools believe that.

It's always about the crime. The whole point of the cover-up is that a full revelation of the underlying crime is not survivable.”

End of the Line - Part II

It may seem a bit anti-climatic but this is the story that stuck in my craw like a tablespoon of cinnamon - Boomer Bequest Is Millennial Misery –  subtitle: Saddled with student and public debt, today’s young adults will long pay the price for our elders’ folly. A hat tip to the copyeditor for that headline, just reading it raised my blood pressure. It also succinctly summarizes the article and lets you know out of the box that it was written by one of the aggrieved generation.

Image result for millennial frowny faceBoomers invented the Happy Face which Millennials appropriated and turned into Frowny Face

Buckle up buttercups, this is gonna be a long one…

To reiterate, the author’s premise is “the boomers took everything, screwed it up and all I got was this lousy life.”

Image result for millennial all star t-shirt…and this lousy T-shirt

The case is laid out without a whiff of irony or sense of personal responsibility. No indication whatsoever that Millennials might have had a hand in the mess they think they’ve landed in, not even from those of them who –like the author- are now nearly 40 years old. Which I remind him was considered middle aged for his parents’ generation. Even the worst of the boomers would have felt foolish blaming their parents for their failure to thrive at that age.

Image result for millennial  t-shirt  adulting

Let’s, as the kids like to say, unpack this article, which is poorly written and even more more poorly argued. FYI, the author is Joseph C. Sternberg who is not just any 37 year old millennial, he’s a WSJ columnist and editorial board member.

The first political challenge is the most frustrating: proving to our elders that we are in economic trouble. Baby boomers look at millennials and see a generation living through the most prosperous era in history. We enjoy creature comforts, technological innovations and varied career opportunities. More of us have gone to college, which boomers view as a definitive mark of social and economic success. And even though we held back from buying houses early in our adult lives, now we’re leapfrogging starter homes and moving straight into bigger ones.

You’ve kind of disproved your first point - “we are in economic trouble” - in the same paragraph you made it.

But these hopeful signs mask deeper problems that developed out of the 2007-08 financial panic, the Great Recession, the slow-growth recovery, and a string of bad decisions the baby boomers made in that span.

Um, not just any old baby boomers, the Democrat, progressive ones. And Barack Hussein Obama who is technically a baby boomer.

The job market failed many millennials early in their careers. Partly that’s because the recession accelerated a trend that saw employers replacing younger, less-experienced employees with machines operated by older, more-experienced ones.

You couldn’t possibly know this because you weren’t born yet but there was a pretty wicked recession in the 70s too, followed by another pretty wicked one in the 80s where there was not just a shortage of good jobs for all the young boomers, but it was accompanied by incomprehensible inflation. The didn’t call it stagflation for naught. Oh, and did I mention the draft? That happened in the 60s and 70’s when your parents were young. The government could just tap you, your brother, friend, boyfriend or husband on the shoulder regardless of what you’d rather be doing and sent you to Vietnam to crawl on your belly through rice paddies. It was a thing.

When we wanted to find good jobs, our parents told us to go back to school. They spent their working lives thinking of college as a guarantee of economic security, so the advice seemed obvious. Alas, we followed it…We borrowed to make this happen.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know; college didn’t cost as much when boomers went, we could work our way through, yada yada yada. Then again, boomers considered themselves very lucky to land a job out of college paying $8K a year. Funny, the generation that was taught that everything is relative doesn’t really believe it.

Image result for t shirt it's complicated

Boomers presented school as an investment in ourselves, worth financing with debt because it would pay off in higher earnings later. To hear them tell it, education is the only sure investment in history. That’s now proving preposterous.

Image result for millenial t shirtPreposterous, but not impossible

Blaming your parents for encouraging you to get a college degree with debt isn’t the real problem. Not being wise enough by the time you inked that loan to invest it in a degree in a field that actually increases your earning power, that’s the problem.

Well-rehearsed evidence that college graduates earn more than high-school graduates on average conceals substantial variations and significant overlap in earnings between the two groups.

Some of those “variations and significant overlap in earnings” are, again, probably related to your chosen major. And as an aside, remember that last sentence – “Well-rehearsed evidence that college graduates earn more than high-school graduates on average conceals substantial variations and significant overlap in earnings between the two groups.” when women start whining about the gender-based wage gap.

Image result for t shirt women's earnings gap

By one count, the lowest-earning quartile of college grads earn roughly the same as the top quartile of high-school-only workers, but with more student debt to show for it.

Okay, stop me if you’ve heard this one before but the lowest-earning quartile of college grads are mostly the ones that came out of college with no more skills than they arrived with. You know, mostly the students with degrees that end in “ology” and all of those that end in “studies” unless they also got a teaching degree.

A severe student-debt crisis has also developed among young adults who reached for college but found it beyond their grasp, racking up debt with no degree to show for it.

Okay, I’ll blame the boomers for creating the myth that everyone should go to college. Clearly. Not. So.

Millennials now are entering politics and might have a chance to change course. But an uncomfortable question is what we will be able to do about these and other urgent economic and social problems in the decades to come. The boomers’ fiscal choices threaten to constrain severely our political options.Image result for t shirt we're so screwed

The long-term problem is federal debt. Including debt owed to the Social Security trust fund, it is now around 105% of gross domestic product. Those are claims that millennials (and their descendants) will eventually have to pay, largely to fund social transfers to the boomers that they weren’t willing to pay themselves.

First of all, please remember that we boomers funded Social Security for the Greatest Generation. Secondly, the unfettered federal debt and pillaging of the Social Security System to fund other domestic social giveaway programs…these are not generational sins, they are ideology sins. Turning the Social Security System into the biggest Ponzi scheme the world has ever known – that was the Democrats and their progressive ideology.  If you are looking for a villain, look to the progressives; robbing Peter to pay Paul has always been their game of choice. As they inch rapidly towards socialism the thefts are simply going to get bigger.

Weave these strands together and the tapestry that emerges depicts an enormous heist, in which boomers stole a decade from their millennial children. The boomers’ combination of naiveté, panic and negligence buried millennials in trouble. Digging our way out will be our primary economic and political challenge.

Just shut up already. The Greatest Generation had two decades stolen, one by depression one by WWII. Then the post-war boom happened. The boomers lost a generation to Vietnam and stagflation and then came Reagan, prosperity ensued. So you’ve got student loans and the Obama malaise. Study history and do something about it.

It all suggests 2020 could become a depressing slugfest between the ne plus ultra boomer and an opponent peddling century-old socialism, neither of whom offers millennials much of a solution to our urgent problems.

Instead of trying to figure out how to drop phrases like ne plus ultra into casual conversation why don’t you just change your stupid t-shirt

Image result for millennials t-shirt

and get over it. Stop voting for stupid progressives at every opportunity. Put down that frowny face and help MAGA.

Be part of the solution, not part of the whiny problem. It’s called personal responsibility. Try it, you’ll like it.

The End of the LIne? Part I

The Wall Street Journal ticks me off quite regularly. The balance of never-Trumpers to rational conservatives is deeply skewed towards the abyss. Much of the non-business content tends towards the trendy which I am decidedly not.

Image result for wall street journal design trends

But I have been reading the WSJ since grad school when I got a complementary subscription for a semester. It was an education in itself – all the stories about capital building, financing, taxes, accounting, bottom lines, products, marketing – oh my! All the mysteries of the business universe revealed.

Of course I didn’t learn how business really worked until much later.

Yet due to my habitual constitution I’ve remained a loyal, if somewhat dissatisfied, reader and subscriber, continuing my WSJ subscription long after dropping all others. To be honest though I generally just give it a quick scan these days. I generally check out the front page, Life and Arts and I’ll read Daniel Henninger on Thursday, Kimberly Strassel on Friday while assiduously avoiding Karl Rove at all times. The weekend Off Duty section is mostly a collection of silly and pretentious pieces on trends in food, drink, gear, gadgets, style and fashion. It’s aimed at elitists and all the striving wannabes.

WSJ: Asking the really important questions.

Image result for wall street journal weekend kombuchaIs Your Home-Brew Kombucha Fermented Enough? (Or Is It About to Explode?)

In an article titled Is Luxury Weed the New Status Symbol? the author wonders if “$950 sculptural water pipes at Barneys, cannabis packed in cut crystal decanters, and vape pens designed with executives in mind—is stoner culture as we knew it over forever?”

Is Luxury Weed the New Status Symbol?Answers: yes, and yes.

And don’t even get me started on the quarterly “style magazine” which is a paean to what was once an “alternate lifestyle” that the WSJ and others are attempting to mainstream. It’s a glossy spread of fashion, art and architecture by and for the LGBTQwerty crowd – as well as anyone who wishes not to offend them.

Image result for WSJ. Magazine, September ( I ) 2015

Every issue glorifies the Androgyny ‘R Us meme.

The weekend Review section, with it’s book reviews, sometimes thoughtful historical pieces and generally entertaining miscellany remains the paper’s only real saving grace.

But two weeks ago today the Journal published an article that has so tested by unshakeable commitment to habit that I believe it may have finally broken it. You may fail to see why this piece is worthy of causing a rift so deep as to destroy a near lifelong relationship and indeed, it probably is not. It’s just the straw that broke the camel’s back.

To be continued tomorrow…

Sorry, I really shouldn’t have gotten so wordy in introducing the source of my ire because now I don’t have time to get into the crux of the matter. So tomorrow, I promise, I will elaborate. But for now I’m heading out to visit my sister-of-the-broken-leg-and-ankle across state. She’s gone back to work but everything, and I mean everything is so much work when you only have one functioning leg. So I’m going to visit and hopefully help out a bit. I’ll see you all tomorrow with…the rest of the story.

The Arc of History Bends Towards Dumb

If I had to choose a “dumbest” Democrat running for president today I guess I’d confer that distinction on Kirsten Gillibrand.

Image result for kirsten gillibrand fatI’ll drink to that!

After all, she’s been groomed by the best.

Image result for kirsten gillibrand drinking with hillary clinton“OK, got it: before 5:00 pm always have your staff serve the booze in teapots.”

But what has she done to claim that distinction? Well, this:

“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will. One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort.”

Such is the nature of “logical” thought today. I don’t know if Kirsten actually believes what she argued - especially since she is a politician which means pandering is her primary skill set -  but I doubt she can point to the bible passage that says it’s a tenet of Christianity to kill unborn children. Anymore than she or anyone else can point to the passage in the U.S. Constitution that purportedly confers the same “right.” You only find such things in the New Postmodern Bible and the Living Constitution.

Image result for kirsten gillibrand fatKirsten: always a big proponent of women’s rights

And then there’s Kirsten’s solution to the immigration crisis:

Under Gillibrand’s open border plan, all border crossers and illegal aliens claiming asylum would be allowed to enter the country, freely, with the hope that they arrive in court for their hearing.

“I wouldn’t keep them in detention at all,” Gillibrand continued. “I wouldn’t … as president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the detention system at all … if someone is seeking asylum, I would assign them a lawyer.”

“They don’t need to be incarcerated,” Gillibrand said. “If they’re given a lawyer and given a process, they will follow it.

Image result for kirsten gillibrand drinkingYup, I’ll drink to that too

Right…I’m sure all the M-13 members will show up, because they have so much respect for our laws. And those Middle Eastern ISIS members, they’ll be there for sure. As will the child sex traffickers. 

For sure, give me a President like Kirsten who has innovative new solutions for all those old sticky wickets.

Although she might be better off staying away from sticky wickets altogether until she learns how to handle them better.

Image result for kirsten gillibrand drinking“And let’s drink to getting rid of the Electoral College! And expanding the Supreme Court too!”

Honestly, I’m so glad we evened the playing field, it makes the game so much fairer.

Inconvenient Truths, Inconvenient Outcomes

The Liberal Australian government pulls out a surprise win Down Under!! WTF!? Australia Election Results: Prime Minister Scott Morrison Seizes a Stunning Win.

Scott Morrison, Australia’s conservative prime minister, scored a surprise victory in federal elections on Saturday, propelled by a populist wave — the “quiet Australians,” he termed it — resembling the force that has upended politics in the United States, Britain and beyond.

The win stunned Australian election analysts — polls had pointed to a loss for Mr. Morrison’s coalition for months. But in the end, the prime minister confounded expectations suggesting that the country was ready for a change in course after six years of tumultuous leadership under the conservative political coalition.

What on earth happened down there?

The election had presented Australia, a vital American ally in the Asia-Pacific, with a crucial question: Would it remain on a rightward path and stick with a political coalition that promised economic stability, jobs and cuts to immigration or choose greater action on climate change and income inequality?

I understand that Labor teamed up with the Green Weenie contingent and made global warming their main focus. All the polls predicting Labor’s win might suggests that there was a whole lot of virtue signaling going on for benefit of the pollsters but the peeps just aren’t really buying it.

By granting Mr. Morrison his first full term, Australians signaled their reluctance to bet on a new leader, choosing to stay the course with a hardworking rugby lover at a time when the economy has not suffered a recession in nearly 28 years.

Those stupid, stupid people! Don’t they know that after 28 years they need a recession!

Reports said support for the conservative came from outer suburban seats with demographics similar to America's rural rust belt.

The victory signals a continued foothold for the troubled conservative party, for which Morrison ran on a message of economic security and development. BI

I repeat, what is wrong with those stupid people, choosing economic security and development over an inconvenient truth.

Related imagePlease note: we’re on the SECOND generation of this horse manure

What can I say? It appears that once again the Neo-Nazis, populists and haters teamed up with the Russians to steal an election that everybody knew Labor was going to win. In fact everybody was so certain about Labor’s win that Sportsbet got a bit ahead of themselves. File this under “don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched.”

Sportsbet will lose at least $5.2 million thanks to its decision to pay out early on Bill Shorten winning Saturday's federal election as large bookmakers again had to admit they had misread the political landscape.

The betting company paid out on Mr Shorten becoming prime minister two days before Australians went to the polls, where voters surprisingly chose to re-elect Scott Morrison's Coalition government. – Sydney Morning Herald

When asked if they regretted the decision to pay out early after “punters” determined that Labor would win 82 seats to the Coalition’s 63, Sportsbet spokesman Richard Hummerston said:

"The quality of toilet paper and stationery will need to be significantly decreased at the Sportsbet offices to cover these costs and we can only keep the heaters on for two hours a day, but in the end, we have a result where most of our punters on a market are winners."

Ironically, if the Labor/Green Weenie coalition had won they still would have had to significantly decrease the quality of their toilet paper – as well as the quantity. And they would have been lucky to have their heaters on for even two hours a day.

All I’m going to say is that the Lefty Aussies seem better equipped to handle defeat than their American counterparts who are still wearing their pussy hats and resisting nearly 3 years later.

You certainly can’t accuse them of not being committed.

P.S. I should note that the Liberal Party is the conservative party in Australia  - because Down Under everything is upside down, eh mate? The Labor Party however - like everywhere - represents all the people who don’t…labor, that is.

It’s worth noting that even in the Jetson’s future world of flying cars a driver was still required.

That’s because the Jetsons lived in a world where technology may have advanced but the fundamental elements of human nature remained the same. Which is to say most humans like to be in control. Driving gives us that sense, we can’t control the other idiots on the road but we can control how we maneuver around their stupidity. And that may be why we may actually be closer to the flying car

This despite Elon Musk’s dream car doing its best to get you to leave the driving to Tesla. Which strikes me as even more insane than turning control of your house over to Alexa. While I sort of get why you’d like a computerized assistant to restock the toilet paper and coffee supply I cannot in a thousand years imagine why you’d turn your car controls over to a computer whose guts were built in China and will be, like your laptop, prone to failure at the most inopportune moment…

Autopilot was active when a Tesla crashed into a truck, killing driver.

The National Transportation Safety Board said a 2018 Tesla Model 3, driven by 50-year-old Jeremy Banner, was in autopilot mode when it collided with a semi truck.

NTSB investigators said Banner turned on the autopilot feature about 10 seconds before the crash, and the autopilot did not execute any evasive maneuvers to avoid the collision.

The Tesla was traveling 68 miles per hour at the time of the crash, according to the NTSB.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the tractor trailer pulled into the path of the Tesla, and the Tesla's roof was sheared off as it passed underneath the semi. Banner died at the scene.

But then, I’ve written about this before: Driverless Cars: The Pinnacle of Soul-Sucking Anti-American Wussification

Could there be anything less American than driverless cars?  I suppose sexbots might quality but certainly driverless cars are right up there.

289YWhy would you NOT want to drive this?

Seriously, driverless cars have no place in the land that practically invented the open road, hit-the-road-Jack-never-come-back motif.

Read the whole thing. It’s still fun. And that’s what cars once were: fun, fun, fun. Now you can take a 3 day cross country road trip and count on one hand the number of cars that are any color other than black, white, sliver or gray. Sad I tell you, just sad.

It’s So Simple When You Let Mother Nature Take the Lead

And then there’s this little gem: (emphasis mine)

A "transgender man" entered a hospital with severe abdominal pains. Because she was identified as a man, the doctors naturally did not think to treat her for labor and delivery, so she tragically lost the baby. Rather than emphasizing the danger of placing gender identity over biological sex, both the journal and The Washington Post made the absurd claim that the hospital should not have ruled out pregnancy for a man.

Of course they shouldn’t have ruled out pregnancy for a man – because that would just be crazy!

"He was rightly classified as a man" in the medical records and appears masculine, Dr. Daphna Stroumsa at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, wrote in the journal article. "But that classification threw us off from considering his actual medical needs."

No, the “classification” did not throw the medical staff off, it was the patient’s insistence that she was a he that did that. You may be able to fool yourself and your doctors but you can’t fool Mother Nature.

It’s science

"The point is not what's happened to this particular individual but this is an example of what happened to transgender people interacting with the health care system," she added.

The Washington Post's Marilynn Marchione argued that this case should make doctors aware of the "blurred lines" in medicine.

The “blurred lines” are not in medicine, but in the politically charged miasma of society at large where the absurd and insane have been embraced and treated as “normal” by people who ought to know better.

Citing the journal article, she claimed that the case "points to larger issues about assigning labels or making assumptions in a society increasingly confronting gender variations in sports, entertainment and government.

Funny thing: “assigning labels or making assumptions in a society increasingly confronting gender variations in sports, entertainment and government” (as if those are three different things) is an altogether new First World problem. Because apparently we don’t already have enough problems.

Thankfully there is a glimmer of hope that people are finally beginning to treat this newly embraced malady the old world way – through DNA testing: XX, you’re female, XY, you’re male.

So when “Mary” Gregory had her titles stripped after blowing everyone out of the water and setting records for her age and weight class at a 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation match she was naturally upset. But officials were clear:

“Mary” Gregory, at “her” weight-lifting event – the orchid nail polish would have fooled me too

“She put down female. Clearly, she’s not a female,” said Paul Bossi, 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation’s president. “Not biologically anyways.”

“In our rules, we go by biological,” he said. “According to the rules, she can only lift in the men’s division. … I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings but I have to follow the rules.”

Do you see how simple it is when we just go with nature’s rules?

I don’t care how much you love it, it’s still not butter

Greeny, Hairy and Creepy

Can this possibly be true – Mayor de Blasio is throwing in with the gang that can’t shoot straight?  With all the fools and knaves running for Democratic presidential nominee the odds of winning are nearly as good as winning the lottery. Even at that Mayor de Blasio is a long, long shot. Or as the New York Post said:

“If you’re not laughing, then you don’t know Bill de Blasio like we know Bill de Blasio.”

They proceed to explain the joke:

He is both incompetent and crooked; oblivious and arrogant. He won his current job in a fluke election back in 2013, yet ever since has seemed certain that he’s destined to be a major national figure — despite falling on his face time after time.

The rest of the article details all the ways in which he is crooked, oblivious and arrogant. That he thinks we think he should run the country with these credentials pretty much proves the author’s point.

At least his presidential announcement explains this stupid Green New Deal stunt at Trump Tower – where he was trolled by Trump supporters on the famous escalators that PDJT road down when he announced his presidential bid.

Way to go Mayor de Blasio, but get in line behind Beto Boy who re-booted his campaign yesterday by getting his ear-hair trimmed at the barber shop.

As could be expected, the video clip posted via his Facebook campaign page was mercilessly mocked on social media, with people branding him 'egotistical' and questioning his campaign adviser's style of public relations

No wonder Creepy Joe is the leader in this crowded field.

The “Wall Street Push Poll”

The “poll results” that you see are never, I repeat, never intended to reflect the voting plans, thinking, preferences, or views of any segment of the population.  “Polls” are intended to “push” you into voting, thinking, preferring or holding the view endorsed by the pollster - ipso fatso they are “push polls”.

At one time the stock market put the “capital” in capitalism, now it serves as more of a slot machine in what has become Wall Street’s giant casino. And like every other gambling establishment it attracts more than its share of shady characters looking to manipulate, control and benefit from all the gaming and gambling.

Accordingly, sudden stock market sell-offs resulting in huge drops are intended to rattle and  “push” the President, Congress or the Fed in a direction preferred by Big Banking.  Charles Payne explains:

Just one more aspect of modern life that once meant something and now, meh. If you have money invested in the stock market for your kids’/grandkids’ college fund or your retirement rest assured that your meager holdings are simply temporary collateral damage. Don’t flinch. What with all the new automated market tools at their disposal the movers and shakers find it quite easy to get the market to perform badly for awhile. If we’re lucky equilibrium will eventually return, surprisingly quickly when the Wall Street push poll maggots get their message across and accomplish their intended purpose (e.g. “we hate tariffs!).
I’m Maxine Waters and I can’t even pretend to understand this message let alone endorse it.

Anti-Semites R’us

Awwww…poor little Rashida.

Rashida and her homies are complaining about people taking her words out of context and using them to stoke racial hatred for political reasons. To be clear, that technique is only acceptable when applied to a President you don’t like…

Several news organizations took remarks President Donald Trump made Wednesday out of context to suggest he was referring to undocumented immigrants at large as "animals," when in context it appears the President was likely referring to members of a violent gang.CNN Business

Media Blatantly Distorting Trump's Words on CharlottesvilleThe Hill

So let’s analyze what Rashida said – editorial comments mine:

There's kind of a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and [quick correctional thinking here, as she realizes what she just said] the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors, Palestinians, who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports," Tlaib said. [the Joose took everything like they always do]

She continued, "I mean, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time,[more quick executive editing and clarification here so critics can’t accuse her of being insensitive to the plight of the Jews] and I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, right, and it was forced on them. [by the bloody Jews and Jew lovers] And so when I think about a one-state, I think about the fact that, why couldn't we do it in a better way?" [because how can you ever expect my people to live in harmony in the midst of Joose?]

"I want a safe haven for Jews," [just not on this planet] she added. "Who doesn't want to be safe? I am humbled [angered] by the fact that it was my ancestors that had to suffer for that to happen, but I will not turn my back and allow others to hijack it and say that it's some extremist approach because they're coming from a place of... whatever it is... of division, inequality." [I believe the word you’re looking for is “hate”]

I will let Israeli U. N. Ambassador Danny Danon respond:

Then again, anti-Semitists have never really done history very well.

Rashida Tlaib, proud member since, well, forever
