Below is a list of 20 plus ‘quality of life’ programs which supposedly [per Facebook, Vickie W] President Trump totally “killed”. Really? Click link and see programs and current status of some So, Not so.
The programs supposedly “killed” include the National Enviornmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, Migratory Bird Act, Clean Air Act, Noise Control Act, Farmlands Protection Act, Coastal Zone Management Act and Natiional Wildlife Refuge Act.
So — is Trump some ‘barbarian’ who hates all sorts of things that make America have better quality of life with safe water, birds that migrate, farms protected and wildlife taken care of ?
July 15 (UPI) —” President Donald Trump on Wednesday made sweeping changes to a pivotal environmental law, limiting public review of federal infrastructure projects to speed up approval for projects such as highways and pipelines.
“Speaking at a UPS facility in Atlanta, Trump announced that his administration had completed a “top to bottom overhaul” of the National Environmental Policy Act, issuing a final rule he said would save hundreds of millions of dollars over a decade by reducing the time to complete reviews of infrastructure projects.
“For decades the single biggest obstacle to building a modern transportation system has been the mountains and mountains of bureaucratic red tape in Washington, D.C.,” Trump said. “All of that ends today.”
The final rule would establish a two-year limit to finish impact statements and a one-year limit for environmental assessments, according to the White House.”
Below is the list of supposedly totally “killed” by Trump programs supplied on Facebook by Vickie W. Best I can see, Trump is trying to change the regulatory process which used to mean getting permits for a highway could take more than 10 years ….

About Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s connection with Praise of People — Below is a tribute to a Praise of People member whose life is celebrated below at the Roman Catholic cathedral in St. Paul. His life was about service to others and love of Jesus.
If Trump nominates her as expected by the WSJ and other papers, will the Democrats rip Amy Coney Barrett for membership in Praise of People? Remember Feinstein’s message: ‘The dogma lives strongly in you …” If so, the Democrats may regret it. So thinks Peggy Noonan of WSJ. Service to others without violence is a better commodity than what Black Lives Matter Inc offers,
On the West coast, there’s a branch of Praise of People located in Portland, Oregon. For the Vancouver / Portland area Charlie Fraga is People of Praise’s contact person firstname.lastname@example.org 503 345 7764
A member of the Brotherhood of Praise of People, Pope Francis appointed Peter Leslie Smith (2-58 born in South Africa) as auxiliary bishop of Portland in 2014. There are Roman Catholic and Lutheran clergy who are members of People of Praise.
Portland Oregon — on nightly TV due to burning, looting and violence — has a current population of 1,379,000, 207,300 of whom are Catholic, with 168 priests serving in different roles in the diocese, and with 42 permanent deacons and 347 religious from various communities and congregations.
“On a frigid Wednesday last December, hundreds gathered for a funeral at the Cathedral of St. Paul, packing the center section of one of the largest churches in the United States. Some circled the downtown blocks near the cathedral looking for parking, and eventually gave up and went home.
Outside, the mailman asked at the rectory what was going on, and the hired motorcycle escort asked the funeral director how he’d gotten such a large event.
“As the gospel was read, a man wearing a bandanna and carrying a backpack came in the side door and walked across the front of the cathedral. On a day with a high temperature of 10 degrees Fahrenheit and a wind chill well below zero, he wore sandals with white socks, and white pants. While the crowd stood in their pews, he walked right up to the casket at the front of the church, bent down and kissed it. Then he walked down the center aisle and out the door.
Later, as the casket was carried out of the cathedral, 12th-grade girls from Visitation School wearing white gloves teared up as they lined the aisle. The school declared a day off in his honor.
Who was this man loved by so many?
He was a security guard. He was a realtor who had once fallen deeply into debt. He wasn’t a rich man or a famous personality. He was Bill Kenney and, above all, as his son, Fr. Kevin Kenney, explained in his homily at the cathedral, he had three words that he wanted said at his funeral: “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.”
* * *
In the early 1970s, Bill Kenney was a hardworking husband and father in the throes of growing a small business. Kenney Realty had three offices in the Twin Cities and 40 licensed realtors. Bill put in long hours showing homes, but he still found time to take his seven kids water-skiing. He bought a beautiful large home for his family near Lake Harriet in South Minneapolis. He loved to talk and meet new people, he loved a good joke, and he loved his wife, Dorothy, often bringing flowers home for her along with the groceries.
He had learned his work ethic early. His father died when Bill was 16, and Bill had taken on two jobs to help support a family of 11, mostly younger siblings. His son Kevin recalls, “From the minute we could walk, we had to have a job of some sort, oftentimes just in his real estate office. I remember as a little kid emptying wastebaskets and vacuuming and cleaning.”
Students at Visitation School lined up as an honor guard for his funeral at the Cathedral of St. Paul.
In the fall of 1973, Dorothy’s life changed when she decided to attend a weekend introduction to the charismatic renewal put on by their parish. At the retreat, Anna Brombach, a fellow mother Dorothy knew from church, came over to pray with her. Dorothy remembers, “I looked down, and it wasn’t Anna’s hand taking mine. It was Jesus’ hand. I got home the next day, and I was so on fire.”
A full turkey dinner was Bill’s favorite thing to cook, and he had one waiting for Dorothy when she came home from the retreat. As the kids started washing the dishes after the meal, Bill and Dorothy went for a walk around Lake Harriet. Dorothy recalls, “I’m jumping and dancing, and I said, ‘Would you ever go to a prayer meeting with me?’ He said, ‘Oh, Dorothy. You’ve always been joyful. What’s such a big deal about this? You go to the prayer meeting. I sure as heck don’t want to go.’”
For two and a half years, Dorothy went to the prayer meetings alone. Then, in 1976, Jim Cahill caught Bill and Dorothy as they were leaving mass, and mentioned that Bishop Lucker, a friend of Bill’s, would be at the prayer meeting that night. As Dorothy remembers, Jim said, “Bill, why don’t you come?” and Bill said, “Maybe I will.” “I nearly fainted away,” Dorothy recalls. At the end of the prayer meeting that night, Bill greeted Bishop Lucker. Says Dorothy, “The bishop said, ‘Bill Kenney! What are you doing here?’ Bill said, ‘I don’t come to these things. My wife does,’ and Bishop Lucker said, ‘You come back five times, and then decide if you’re ever going to come again.’ Well, Bill obeyed him, and he never stopped coming.”

Bill quickly became involved in the charismatic renewal, attending conferences and praying with people. He and Dorothy joined the growing covenant community in the Twin Cities that would eventually become Servant Branch. Bill insisted that his teenage children attend charismatic conferences, and all seven of them were eventually prayed with for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Bill started asking for the Lord’s help in the details of his life. Kevin recalls him praying over broken washing machines, as well as his response to car troubles on a road trip. “I think the block cracked in the car. He says, ‘We have to pray over it and it’ll get fixed.’ That was his faith.” Many of Bill’s friends recall him counting how many times priests mentioned the name “Jesus” in their Sunday homilies so that he could encourage them later to get their numbers up.

This shift in Bill’s focus impacted his business life, too. By the late 1970s, with the economy struggling, it became clear that Kenney Realty was overextended. The company, and therefore Bill as its owner, had fallen hundreds of thousands of dollars into debt. Many years later, Bill told the story to the Twin Cities Catholic charismatic renewal: “Because of my finances, I decided I needed help. I received the Holy Spirit in my life, and got serious about getting out of debt. I always made decisions to do things, and then I asked God to bless it, but now I was asking God’s opinion as to what I was doing.” Bill started referring to Kenney Realty as a Christian business and instituted an optional daily morning prayer at the office.
In 1979, Bill brought in some community members with business experience to form a board of directors for Kenney Realty. Robert Regan, who worked in investment counseling and served on the board, recalls Bill asking for help with the administrative side of the business. “He was always gregarious, a great salesman, not as good as an administrator and manager, or financial guy.” Good advice from brothers and a demand for houses that came from groups of brothers and sisters moving to the Twin Cities to join the community (from North Dakota, Iowa and Washington) kept the business growing for a few years until another economic downturn in the early 1980s.
Also in 1979, Bill and Dorothy began a process of downsizing that would continue into the 1990s. Dorothy remembers, “To get out of debt, he never filed for bankruptcy, but he said, ‘We have to sell the big house.’ “Dorothy loved their block because they were surrounded by at least eight other large community families, and the Kenneys used their house to host morning prayer for the neighborhood, but they left it behind for a smaller place on Minnehaha Parkway. Bill’s eye for real estate showed in the deal: the new house was more affordable, but still in a lovely spot.
Three years later, Bill told Dorothy that they would need to sell the smaller house and rent something. To Bill’s surprise, the first thing Dorothy asked about was curtains. “I said, ‘If you rent a house, you don’t want to put fancy curtains in there.’ Of all the crazy things for me to say, but that’s what was on my heart at the time.” Soon after that, Bill and Dorothy went to look at a condo at the Commodore, an old converted hotel in St. Paul. The owner reported, “We furnished the whole place, and I just spent $10,000 on window treatments.” They moved in and eventually bought the condo. Bill set up a small office downstairs, where he kept Kenney Realty running as a smaller and smaller business until it finally disbanded in the 1990s, when Bill went to work as a realtor for another firm.
Dorothy Kenney stands in front of a photo of herself and Bill on their wedding day two days after he returned from Korea. They were married 62 years.
Finally, in 1999, a confluence of events ended Bill’s remaining debt for good. Both a community member and a minister Bill had borrowed from separately decided to forgive him those large debts. A year or two earlier, Bill and Dorothy had thought about selling the condo to move into a smaller apartment across the street from the Cathedral of St. Paul, but it hadn’t sold. Then another apartment opened up in the same building, so they put the condo on the market again, and it sold for $20,000 more than the original listing. Dorothy says, “Bill always said, ‘God dumped $20,000 in my lap.’ So, totally, totally, totally out of debt, we started over.”
Robert remembers, “Bill had been living an upper-middle-class life and he made the transition to less money. He had to change dramatically. He made the transition, just no problem at all. He trusted the Lord and never had a depressed day as far as I recall. The Lord let him down very gently, step by step, and gradually out of debt.”
In the midst of all this, Bill was busy for the Lord, too. He was in Christians in Commerce. He was on the board of DeLaSalle High School, his alma mater. He was chairman of the Catholic charismatic renewal in the Twin Cities. He and Dorothy joined the cathedral parish in St. Paul, and Bill volunteered to run the men’s club pancake breakfasts. He was also constantly engaged in his favorite pastime, talking to people about Jesus.
Mark Lauer, Bill’s head, remembers going out to lunch with Bill. “He would get to know the waiter or waitress by name and a little bit about the person’s story. If any need came up, he would say, ‘I’ll pray for you.’” Bill and Robert played golf together regularly, and sometimes they would pair off with a couple of golfers they didn’t know. Robert says, “No matter who we were playing golf with, Bill would somehow bring the Lord into the conversation: ‘Do you know the Lord? Are you going to church?’ A lot of people would say, ‘I quit going 25 years ago.’ He’d tell them, ‘You gotta get back in touch.’”

Around the year 2000, Bill took a newly created job as a security guard at Visitation School, a Catholic school of about 600 students in Mendota Heights. Visitation starts with pre-K, and the older students in grades six to twelve are all girls. Bill arrived in the afternoons and stayed to close the building at night, watching the security cameras, greeting visitors, and walking the last few girls to their cars after dark. He discovered that the parking lot was a little chaotic in the afternoon, with students crossing the street at the same time that vehicles needed to leave, so he started coming in earlier to direct traffic, sometimes in a funny winter hat.
A blanket from Visitation sits on Bill’s favorite recliner.
Rene Gavic, the head of school at Visitation, remembers, “He was the go-to person. He knew everything. He had keys for everything. He was a good problem-solver, so if someone’s car wouldn’t start, they would go to Bill first. He cared about you and would help you and support you in any way.”
Bill noticed when the students were having difficulties. Mary McClure, who teaches religion at Visitation, recalls, “He would ask, ‘Would you like me to pray with you?’ He waited until he knew there was an opening. Sometimes girls would share a healing: they needed to run, and they’d had an injury, so Bill prayed and they were able to participate the next day.”
Rene adds a story about her own daughter at Visitation. “When she was 12, she fell in a cross-country race, and other runners stepped on her face with their spiked shoes. She needed 22 stitches in her face. As a 12-year-old girl, that was challenging for her. I remember her coming to school the very first day back, and what she wanted to do was have Mr. Kenney pray with her. He prayed with her, and her situation and her self-image–all of that–never bothered her again.”
At Visitation, Bill developed a strategy for generosity. Once a month, the students give one dollar to charity for permission to be out of uniform for the day. Bill dropped by the campus minister’s office on the day she collected the dollars, and exchanged larger bills for her pile of ones. “In one of his pockets, he had a little vial of oil to pray with people, and in the other pocket, he had maybe twenty single ones. That would be for the kids whose dollar got stuck in the vending machines,” Mary remembers. Those ones also often made their way into the hands of the homeless.

There’s no way to know for sure if the man who kissed his casket at the funeral knew Bill, but we can be quite sure that Bill would have cared about him if he had ever met him on the street. In his later years, Bill’s friends remember him always going up to homeless people standing on corners, telling them that Jesus loved them, and giving them one or two dollars for a cup of coffee. That human contact was important to him. Bill’s son Kevin adds that he would also offer a dollar or two when someone at the grocery store didn’t have enough to pay. “I think it was because people had helped him when he was in a time of need. It became a way of life for him,” Kevin recalls.

On December 4, 2016, Bill stayed after church at the cathedral to play St. Nicholas for the children, while Dorothy went home. As he was leaving, he fell on the sidewalk outside, and a passerby called 911. He’d had a stroke and died within a few days.
For Christmas, Dorothy and the Kenney family gathered at the home of one of her daughters. Bill had dressed as Santa Claus for many years, and Santa Claus wasn’t there that year. Dorothy’s kids coaxed her to the front door of the house. Dorothy recalls, “Out the front door they had all these jars with candles in them spelling out ‘Jesus’ on the front lawn. It was so beautiful, because Bill preached Jesus. I mean, he preached Jesus, preached, preached Jesus.”
To prevent Covid-19, you must take care of yourself. Ignore Dr. Fauci’s advise and read up on the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloriquine.
Should you get Covid-19 symptoms, consider taking the anti-malaria drug President Trump takes as a preventative measure: Hydroxychloroquine . Of course, get appropriate, up-to-date medical advise based on latest findings. Contact your doctor and get a prescription. Taken early, the drug often prevents hospitalization and less severity of symptoms.
The drug is available from CanadaPharmacyOnline.com You need a prescription. The process is easy to do and takes a few minutes to set up an account and place an order. Then have your doctor FAX or Email the appropriate prescription. They ask that you send your bank account routing number and account number to them to verify that they are correct. The FAX number for Canada Pharmacy Online is 866 930 3784.
Easy and cheap: ” Hydroxychloroquine costs 60 cents a tablet, it can be taken at home, and a course of therapy simply requires swallowing three tablets in the first 24 hours followed by one tablet every 12 hours for five days.
It works: “There are now 53 studies that show positive results of hydroxychloroquine in COVID infections. There are 14 global studies that show neutral or negative results — and 10 of them were of patients in very late stages of COVID-19, where no antiviral drug can be expected to have much effect. Of the remaining four studies, two come from the same University of Minnesota author. The other two are from the faulty Brazil paper, which should be retracted, and the fake Lancet paper, which was.
“Millions of people are taking or have taken hydroxychloroquine in nations that have managed to get their national pandemic under some degree of control.
“Two recent, large, early-use clinical trials have been conducted by the Henry Ford Health System and at Mount Sinai showing a 51% and 47% lower mortality, respectively, in hospitalized patients given hydroxychloroquine. A recent study from Spain published on July 29, two days before Margaret Sullivan’s strafing of “fringe doctors,” shows a 66% reduction in COVID mortality in patients taking hydroxychloroquine. No serious side effects were reported in these studies and no epidemic of heartbeat abnormalities.
“This is ground-shaking news. Why is it not being widely reported?
“Why is the American media trying to run the U.S. pandemic response with its own misinformation?
Aptos Psychologist: Since mainstream media is joined at the hip with the Democrat Party — and both show Trump derangement syndrome — the mainstream media reports only what it thinks will show Trump in a bad light. Nothing new!. What say you?
Who did a better job on the economy — Obama or Trump — comparing money in the pocket, unemployment and inequality of income?
Obama fans — read and weep! Your hero Obama stayed stuck in the mud. This is from the Wall Street Journal Opinion page, Monday, August 3, 2020.
Money: So did Obama or Trump put the most money in the pocket of American families? Comparing Obama with Trump as to which President did the best job raising the annual medium income (AMHI), Trump did twice as well as Obama. That’s comparing Obama’s 8 years with the first two years of Trump’s administration. (see WSJ, The Economy That Obama Handed Trump Aug. 3, 2000).
Unemployment: Unemployment and under-employment under Obama? Remember the vast number of working-age people who were unable to find jobs and had given up actively looking for work during the Obama yaars? The labor-force declined during Obama’s years and in Sept. 2015 it was the lowest since 1977. Millions during those 8 years were not working. Remember all the people who were reduced from full to part-time employment due to ObamaCare insurance rules? In comparison, prior to the pandemic Trump’s policies have encouraged job growth and put increased the well-being of workers and that of their families. [Teresa & Rich Guerriello’s Letter]
Income inequality: How come so much more inequality? Obama or Trump related? Under Obama, after a full four years in office the unemployment rate was higher than when Obama took office Jan. 20, 2009. This high unemployment rate persisted because it was the weakest expansion rate since the 1940s. During the 8 years of Obama with low economic growth and high unemployment, income inequality increased. [Lee Huffman]
Trump does not ‘act Presidential’ some say. That’s what William DeLaArteaga writes in his recently published essay On Discerning Trump’s Character and Presidency.It’s available on Amazon with Kindle for $3.50. DeLaArteaga says Trump is full of ‘bull-shit’, that Trump is a narcissist and not a ‘gentleman President’.
A writer for the Wall Street Journal, David Gelernter says that people hate Trump for his vulgarity, that he won’t walk away from a fight, that he’s blunt and that Trump has no ideology. Gelernter also says some hate Trump because he does not think men and women are interchangeable and because of Trump’s love of simple ideas that may work e.g., the recent view that perhaps a malaria drug used for 50 years can used as a preventative or cure for COVID-19.
So — why do you hate Trump? Don’t just say ‘he lies! Or, he’s a racist! Be specific!

Zoom states that it offers end-to-end encryption (ETEE) for both paid and free users. That should mean that the Chinese Communist Party can’t see user’s data. Zoom has put considerable effort into improving privacy for all users. Free users will provide a phone number to ensure that they are who they are.
Aptos Psychologist: It’s time to de-couple the USA from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The ‘globalization’ efforts of the Clinton and Obama years reaching out to China resulted in the loss of about 1/3 of USA manufacturing jobs. China got richer and America became poorer due to globalization. And now the USA is too dependent on China — run by the Chinese Communist Party — for things we should manufacture for ourselves. Like drugs.
The USA economy was booming until the Covid-19 pandemic struck. In early 2000, the Chinese Communist Party exported Covid-19, a deadly virus manufactured in a Chinese research lab, to the world. In California, Gov. Newsom, a Democrat govenor, recently bought half a million masks from China as he continues to keep California’s economy shut-down. First China wrecks havoc on the world’s economy and then it makes a profit selling masks to California.
It’s time for Trump and Congress to say enough is enough. Bring jobs back to America.
Want to prevent getting COVID-19? Consider taking that anti-malaria drug. The one which President Trump takes.
A group of frontline MDs recommend for prevention of COVID-19 that you take a low dosage —200 mg — of anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine twice a week for prevention of COVID-19 . Very important, also take the mineral zinc.
This was one of the recomendations of a group of frontline medical doctors during a press conference in Washington D.C. on 7/22/2020.
Hydroxychloroquine is viewed as a life-saving medication for both prevention and treatment of COVID-19 by these M.Ds.
A group of MD’s explained why they support the anti-malaria drug for prevention and as a possible cure for COVID-19 during a press conference 7/28/2020.
Their main point is that the public should have access to information and make up their own mind — not be spoon fed one side of the story by the press and supposed medical experts. Dr. Fauci — who has been in his job since 1984 — strongly supported the anti-malaria drug 15 years ago; now he opposes it. Why the flip flop?
Dr.Faui has not seen an actual patient for treatment in 20 years; these medical doctors say that Dr. Fauci needs to meet regularly with actual MDs who are on the front lines treating the virus.
Dr. Emanuel — on Twitter — was one of the doctors excoriating Dr. Fauci for being out of touch with front line doctors who treat patients. Dr. Emanuel said she has treated 300 patients — many with co-morbid conditions (diabetes, obesity, heart) and all of them were helped by use of the anti-malaria medication in conjunction with other meds.
Gist of what these frontline MD’s said:
Facts: Several randomized studies show no health benefits for the drug. One was in the New England Journal of Medicne. That patients treated do show improvement is also a fact. The drug works. This drug has been used variously, e.g. for rheumatoid arthritis, lupis and malaria. Why limit the use of the is drug by MDs? Doctors who do the treatment need to have flexibility to use this drug. So say this group of doctors.
Pay attention to deaths caused by the virus — and ignore the case numbers which are irrelevant. The media focuses on case numbers which don’t matter. It’s deaths that matter and numbers of deaths by COVID-19 are hard to get.
Children need and must get back to school. Children are the least affected and young children don’t pass it on.
Unions are stopping the opening of the schools. One of the MDs, Dr. James Tadaro, who said he was from California said that it’s the unions which keep the schools closed. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) in CA seeks to defund the police and to put a moratorium on charter schools. Dr. Todaro is on Twitter and has a website titled Medicine Uncensored.
Where to purchase the anti-malaria drugHydroxychloroquine. It is sold over the counter in many parts of the world including Iran and Indonesia. It has been used safely for 50 years. It is as safe as asprin say these doctors. Some pharmacies are interfering with MD’s prescription of the drug they say.
What doseage hydroxychloroquine as a preventaitve? For prevention of COVID-19, take 200 mg (only) twice a week and also take the mineral zinc. Your lungs are depleted of zinc they say.
And now Squarespace – the website for these doctors — REMOVED THEIR WEBSITE TODAY!
Tech giants Twitter, YouTube etc., are REFUSING to broadcast information on the use of an anti-malaria drug.

Parents get total choice where to send their children — e.g., home school, charter school, religious schools, on-line — if local public schools do not re-open. The federal money to assist schools will follow the children with the parents making the decision. So says Trump on TV July 23.
Trump says: American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that schools re-open. Social isolation hurts children in multiple ways. National Education Association says in-person learning is very important. Due to school closures it’s estimated that children will be way behind in both math and reading. Children are largely not at risk from the virus i.e., they are less that 1 percent of those who get the corona virus.
Strategy to re-open schools? Shelter those at highest risk and those lowest to get back to school. Says Trump.
on 7/23 Trump says that there’s $105 BILLION additional dollars available for schools for smaller school classes, to re-purpose school spaces, and so children wear masks and maintain social distancing.
Trump says: If schools do not open, the $105 BILLION new funding goes to parents to send children to schools of their choice. The money will follow the students. we cannot and must not stop 50 million children from going to school says Trump.
This is based on material in the WSJ, Friday, July 17, 2020, The Campaign Finally Begins by Kimberly Strassel.
Trump plans ‘top-to-bottom’ overhaul of the federal environmental review process which stands in the way of nearly every infra-structure project in the country. That would create millions of jobs, attract more business to American and make the USA more competitive.
Biden just released his $2 TRILLION climate change plan, product of a task force co-chaired by Rep. Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez.
Biden vows to outlaw all use of coal and natural gas to generate electricity within 15 years. He will ban oil and gas production on federal land and offshore. He seeks ‘zero emissions’ cars. Biden is promising to delete the jobs of millions of Americans — at a times of soaring unemployment. A ban on offshore drilling alone would cost 200,000 jobs and damage regional economies. Basic consumer choice would disappear for vehicles, dishwashers, even homes.
Biden wants to massively re-regulate the energy economy. Trump said, “We want to get things built.”
Aptos Psychologist: Let people live their lives free from as much regulation as possible.Let people go back to work when and as they choose. Open the schools. Start new charter schools — which have fewer regulations — if teachers in union jobs don’t want to teach. Social distancing issues can be worked out. Masks and the wearing of them for long periods of time is problematic both in terms of cleanliness and simple breathing.
What say you? Weigh in on the conversation about jobs, Biden and Trump.
To say someone, i.e. Rep. Adam Schiff, is “shifty” is anti semetic? So says Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and other members of her “squad”.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to President Trump who posted a video showing Lyin’ Shifty Schiff aka Adam Schiff as pinocchio. With each “lie” Adam Schiff’s “nose” gets longer and longer.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused President Donald Trump of antisemitism for mocking Rep. Adam Schiff.
Ocasio-Cortez made the claim while linking to an Intercept article in which the author accused the president of antisemitism for calling the freshman lawmaker and her “squad” (who are not Jewish), Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Schiff “Do Nothing Democrat Savages.”
The article also claims that the nickname “shifty Schiff,” given to him by President Trump following his massive lies involving the Ukranian phone call “whistleblower,” is an antisemitic attack.
“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“It’s wrong. It’s harmful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
The article claims that “the stereotype of Jews as ‘shifty,’ the suggestion that they are sneaky and manipulative, has a long and ignominious history. Trump — who ‘often plays on well-worn caricatures about cleverness, deviousness, and physical weakness’ when discussing Jews, to quote Peter Beinart — knows what he is doing when he gives Schiff this particular nickname; it is no accident or coincidence.”
The accusation is part of a clear trend in which Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the Democrat Party attack President Trump relentlessly and then cry victim when he responds. It’s reminiscent of Twitter trolls who tweet terrible things at you for days and then cry bullying when you’ve finally had enough and respond.
President Trump’s daughter, who he works closely with in the White House, is Jewish, as are his grandchildren. He has been called the most “pro-Israel president ever” by many.
