Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

Trump doesn't care about Yiddish labels, but he does care about money. Living in NYC, I suspect he has had ample time to assess where his support should be placed, in order to receive the largest blessings from Mammon. Inasmuch as the Democrats are trying as hard as they can to alienate average fly-over state voters, he will say whatever he thinks is propitious in order to garner those unloved voters' support. He hasn't made it to his current position in life by not recognizing a possible customer when he sees one. Does that make him their friend? If no one else is listening to them, then yes it does.

Mia: no, Rockwell was not a Jew (don't believe everything you hear on Stormfront). Oh, and the "Palestinians" are only a "hair shirt" to themselves, and to the Middle Eastern opportunists (Fatah, PLO, Hezbolah, etc.) who couldn't care less about them, but see them as convenient whipping boys and martyrs. Self-loathing Jew, much?

moverhill, yeah I know and George Lincoln Rockwell was actually a Jew. But Zionism, born of a questionable relationship to Islam, has thru it's oppression of muslim and christian Palestinians has become an an anathema to Muslims everywhere.
The Democrats would be well shorn of this hair shirt.

PS Don't be so hard on yourself with your screen name. I suspect you're more likely a Shaina Punim than a mieskeit.

moverhill, how can a Muslim not be antagonistic towards Israel?

Re: “Dems on the Rebound

The Dems have a lot of work to do considering how many union members, a traditional (and reliable) Democratic constituency, voted for Trump.

Just what the Dems need: a Muslim who's antagonistic to Israel. That ought to make Trump's head spin.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

50K? There is only one position at the top of the pyramid scheme that is the US banking sector, but everyone who is standing around next to it, dreams of being the pointy end. Pretty soon, they'll figure out a way to get a robot to do the work, and then the whole lot of 'em will just be standing around.

I shall now contemplate the 50k jobs in the USA banking sector and 50 billion investment in the USA banking sector by SoftBank.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@Bric

I was not fighting, I was just asking you to develop your idea that the Electoral College and the 3/5 provision played a part in the Civil War. Since I have never heard that proposed, it is an interesting thought to someone like me who has studied that conflict for many years.

I regret you are unable to do so.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

I recently saw a photo of a pair of bull moose locked in battle, dead, both of them, frozen in the ice.

I have seen this before.

I shall contemplate this photo.

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

Actually ApoP, you don't appear as if you could understand what I assert even if I did write a detailed explanation much less a few salient points, so don't you worry about it any longer. I'm sure you have better things to do.

Tell me, have you gotten your uniforms cleaned after the last re-enactment?

LoveBC,
Sorry, since the topic is Rep Ellison, I thought that was what you were talking about.

Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

Nick R, I thought I made it clear, I was talking about Pelosi.

Pelosi used to the the majority leader. I cannot blame, or thank her, for the ker plunk of the democratic party, but as a leader, she must shoulder some of the blame for the dems losing the house, senate and presidency. I imagine she had a voice in the strategy meetings.

Nick R, the elites (super delegates) were so busy screwing Sanders and his minions that they lost sight of what they used to stand for, which was the plight of the working and middle classes.
