…Columbus sailed the ocean blue. And Judaism was banned in Spain.
“…but many Jews, including the Rodriguez family, continued to secretly cling to the Jewish faith and rituals, while living publicly as Catholics. The fearsome Spanish Inquisition ruthlessly hunted these secret Jews, torturing and executing anyone suspected of engaging in Jewish rituals.”
A Rodriguez heir eventually fled to Mexico but found the Inquisition was there ahead of him and so he continued to be a Catholic in public and a Jew in private until about 1590 when the family was found out and tortured and executed.
Today a small, handwritten diary survives them. It’s a compelling story worth a read. Especially when you consider one of its meanings: that Jews were in the New World before the Pilgrims arrived.
I’ve heard for years that the Clintons and their staffs did much damage to the White House, in particular things that would cause the incoming Bush administration time, trouble and money to repair. But until now I’d never seen any proof. This is from a GAO report in PDF format you can access on your own:
“Incidents such as the removal of [W] keys from computer keyboards; the theft of various items; the leaving of certain voice mail messages, signs, and written messages; and the placing of glue on desk drawers, clearly were done intentionally…
“…about two dozen prank signs, printed materials, stickers, or written messages that were affixed to walls or desks; placed in copiers, desks, and cabinets; or placed on the floor. They said some of these were derogatory and offensive in nature about the president, and sometimes there were multiple copies in certain locations…
“a total of 10 to 11 missing doorknobs, which may have been historic originals; an EOP official, a GSA official, and a Secret Service official said that a presidential seal 12 inches in diameter was stolen; two EOP staff said they observed a total of 9 to 11 missing television remote controls; and two EOP staff said that two cameras were missing. In addition, two EOP officials said that about 20 cellular telephones could not be located in the office suite where they belonged….
“Two EOP staff said that they saw a total of 5 to 6 telephone lines “ripped” (not simply disconnected) or pulled from walls, and another EOP employee said that at least 25 cords were pulled from walls in two rooms….”
Aren’t she and Slick going to have fun if she wins the election? When he’s not groping interns.
In response to his whine about taking it personally if blacks don’t vote for you-know-who.
“…The enthusiasm level for Hillary Clinton in the black Community in Florida is swimming with the Tidy Bowl man. Trust me, as it currently stands, folks will not be standing in line for hours to vote for her.”
Not to the Hildabitch, of course, but who cares what the secretly Parkinson’s Diseased presidential candidate thinks about anything?
I’m going for the coffee mug. But the “Adorable Deplorable” tee shirt beckons.
Not just because she’s a well-known criminal. Nor that she is a world class liar of longstanding. No, the best reason of all is that she is hiding a serious health problem.
Specifically, her Parkinson’s Disease. Of which her recent pneumonia diagnosis is a clear indication. Also her freezing on stage and frequent trouble walking.
But she’ll never own up to it. And the videos of her shocking rag doll act at the 9/11 memorial event show that even the Secret Service is covering for her.
She’ll have to be outed.
UPDATE: Wikileaks has a tantalizing partial outing: “It has been confirmed that the State Department staff, under Hillary Clinton, was told to research new drugs to treat Parkinson’s disease.”
AND: I like the coffee mugs best, but the Team Deplorable tee shirts are also nice. Not wise to wear them here in lefty land, however.
Where the government is “volunteering” urbanites to work in the farm fields as the country’s food crisis deepens.
Which brings to mind…
“‘Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
“This is known as ‘bad luck.’”
― Robert A. Heinlein
I’m sure the pols don’t have the balls to design the new Harriet Tubman twenty like this. But they should. She wasn’t some sit-in artist like the recent clowns in the House of Representatives. And she wasn’t anti-gun like they are.
If she had been she’d have been quickly dead instead of what she was, a successful agitator for emancipation of the slaves while spiriting some of them to freedom—with the aid of a gun like that heavy, long-barrel Dragoon revolver that ought to be on the twenty with her. Won’t be but should be.
