1. Me A bit more than a decade ago, I worked at a nightmarish place for nearly three years. Although I had been quite the outspoken type for many decades since my youth, my subsequent quarter-century of maturation included learning for several years at a great seminary for rabbinical ordination, earning a graduate degree in American history, ten years in the pulpit, thereafter studying at a great law school, serving as Chief Articles Editor of law review, then clerking for a brilliant and dignified United States federal appeals court judge, and next litigating for more than a decade in big-firm

I think there´s a great deal of truth in this article. In my younger days, I had assumed the "default liberal" political posture. It took two years of working next to to a sanctimonious, humorless, authoritarian liberal to convert me to a lifelong conservative.

Wow. A MUST READ for the ages.
Written from the heart, written from the inside, written with the solid gold of personal honesty. Now I understand a little better why Trump went from mugwump to staunch Conservative. It was the vicious and endless attacks. It was not even being given a chance to work together. It was full war from day one.
Trump could have compromised. He could have done the side-by-side dance. All he needed was a little welcome, a little space, a little conciliation.
But the all-out war hardened him. It turned him from squish to inflexible chromium steel. The Dems made an ENEMY from someone who could have been a friend. And once made in the fire, steel lasts a long time. See the Norse swords which have lasted 1000 years. Once you come out of that crucible, you are changed forever. All of a sudden the Constitution makes a new kind of sense.
Thank you, Mr Fisher. Now I get it.

Add Senator Collins to the list. I think she is walking away from being wanting to be liked by Democrats, just like Lindsey Graham.

My thought as Kavanaugh was being sworn in, still emotionally bleeding from the viciousness of his attackers’ ripping and tearing, is he really going to be the same man - “impartial and fair?” He seemed fine until Trump reminded everyone of the jackal pack-style mauling he (and his family) endured. Kavanaugh would like to be impartial but I suspect the democrat/deep state/communist machine kicked that protected, middle-class Pollyanna thinking in the face about twenty times too many. I’d like to see Kavanaugh’s opinions ridicule the “thinking” of the three ugly witches whose minds are made up on every case before the first question is answered.

With respect to Rabbi Fischer, “hell” is more forceful than “heck.” It’s okay to use “hell” as in “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” I said “heck” only in the presence of my mother when she was alive.

A different insider dish on Trump
New York Post, by Seth Lipsky    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 10/22/2018 4:46:38     Post Reply
With all the books about President Trump, one mystery has been ignored. How did this supposed clown manage not only to learn Ronald Reagan’s economic formula but also carry it to the next level? Bob Woodward has sketched a White House ruled by fear. Omarosa Manigault Newman has written a yarn about a president “unhinged.” Michael Wolff has penned a picture of “fire and fury.” Yet none has even tried to address the elephant in the room — how Trump built the platform of economic growth and jobs that managed to crack the Democrats’ presidential-election “Blue Wall” and leave our newscasters agape.

Emmanuel Macron, the youthful and ambitious president of the French, likes to talk about African birthrates. In the summer of 2017, he answered a question about why there couldn’t be a Marshall Plan for Africa by calling the continent’s problems “civilizational,” and lamenting that African countries “have seven or eight children per woman.” This was attacked by some as racist, defended by others as hardheaded realism about development economics. Macron obviously felt comfortable with what he’d said, because he returned to the idea last month at a Gates Foundation conference.

A gay man who describes himself as a liberal Democrat is accusing New Jersey Senator Cory Booker of sexually assaulting him in 2014. Booker is considered a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous for now, penned a lengthy open letter that was posted on Twitter. In the letter he describes the assault that occurred in a bathroom following a meeting at his workplace, where the two met. The letter goes into excruciating detail.

A caravan of thousands of footsore Central American migrants who say they are seeking refuge from violence in their countries was moving north Sunday under the close watch of an army of Mexican federal police in riot gear. Mexican officials said federal police were staying in front of the caravan, which stretched about two miles and comprised of mostly people from Honduras and Guatemala, many of whom say they are determined to reach the U.S. border 1,700 miles away.

Here’s why Hillary Clinton losing her
security clearance matters for the rest of us

Hillary Clinton no longer has a security clearance. A letter released from the Department of State to Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, says she lost her clearance on August 30 at her request. The State Department also withdrew security clearances from five people Clinton had previously requested clearances for, as she had designated them “researchers.” One was Cheryl Mills, who was once the deputy White House counsel for President Bill Clinton who defended him during his 1999 impeachment trial. The names of the others were redacted. The mainstream media is treating the loss of these clearances as a move

Something has happened to the Democratic Party, something dramatic and awful. It wasn’t that long ago that the Democratic Party liked the United States, and its members weren’t afraid to say it. Now saying positive things about the country will get you run out of the party and possibly attacked by a mob. Their media minions will cheer it all. And, if things go as expected next month, these people could retake the House of Representatives. These people in power should scare everyone. There is nothing they won’t do to win,

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Sometimes, you meet special people, people who have an impact not just on your day, but on your outlook in life. People who provide you a priceless gift by letting you see the world through their eyes, and thus showing you that everything is a little better than you thought it was before you met them. Sometimes, those people are only eight years old. The first thing you will learn about Jared Gyure when you meet him is that he likes U.S. presidents.

In hot pursuit of Texas
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 10/21/2018 5:31:07     Post Reply
The Democrats just can’t quit counting on Texas. Election after election, they’ve surveyed the Giant and its growing Hispanic population and imagined electoral manna. America’s second most populous state remains stubbornly, implacably Republican. The state legislature is dominated by the GOP. So, too, the state’s congressional delegation. Donald Trump bested Hillary Clinton by nine points there in 2016. Two years earlier, the Democrats thought they had a real shot at the governorship with a campaign in support of abortion for all, but Wendy Davis lost by 20 points. No Democrat has won a statewide race in Texas for a quarter century.

While the details of Jamal Khashoggi’s death have not fully emerged, we know the essentials. He died at the hands of Saudi agents in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and the decision to kidnap or kill him must have been taken at the top of the Saudi political structure. Whether crown prince Mohammed bin Salman asked “will no one rid me of this meddlesome journalist” or specified the methods to be used, he is responsible for Khashoggi’s death. The Saudi decision to name several senior intelligence officials as sacrificial lambs will fool no one,

The Republicans are still
in the fight to take the House

Control of the House of Representatives is teetering on a razor’s edge, poised to fall to the Democrats on Nov.?6, but hardly a lost cause for the Republicans. Amid a blue tide of cash, grass-roots activism and voter enthusiasm, the Democrats only have to win 23 seats to erase the GOP’s 42-seat majority. Every single House seat in the country is facing an election. The wave, if there is one, could crash the hardest in America’s suburbs, where dissatisfaction with President Trump, particularly among women, is driving typically Republican districts toward the welcoming arms of the Democratic Party.

A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone. Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao -- to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell. “Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester

About 2,000 Central American migrants who avoided Mexican law enforcement at a border bridge and swam or floated across from Guatemala have decided to reconstitute their mass caravan and continue the push north toward the U.S. Gathered at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo, the migrants voted, then marched to the bridge to urge those still there to cross the river and join them, The Associated Press reported on Saturday night. "Let´s all walk together!" and "Yes we can!" they cried, defying warnings to turn back this week from President Trump, who has sought to make immigration,

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico.

It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant." (Snip) Peta links this concept to white supremacy by saying cows are controlled by humans, similar to the mindset of

The fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers refused to release the results of her polygraph exam until the day before her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month caused some suspicion. And when we finally got a look at them, a lot of Judge Kavanaugh’s supporters were confirmed in their suspicions. It turned out that Ford’s examiner, former FBI agent Jeremiah Hanafin, only asked her two relevant questions. And that’s not how most folks imagine polygraph exams are supposed to go.
