As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

DNC Officials Dismissive of Holocaust

When Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked her staffers for a statement on Holocaust Memorial Day, two of her aides mocked her and the Holocaust and one suggested the murder of 6 million Jews was no bigger deal than the Bosnia massacre.

“We need to do a statement from the DNC. Is there a reason we haven’t?” Wasserman Schultz asked in the email to communications director Ryan Banfill on May 5 of this year.
Banfill forwarded Schultz’s email to DNC staffer, Kate Houghton. “Flagging for you. The chair is asking for a statement on Yom Hashoah,” Banfill wrote.

“We aren’t going to do statements for every Jewish holiday unless she wants to do them for every religious holiday and trust me, this Catholic can give you a list of them,” Houghton replied. “Also when she does an official statement it makes very little sense to have two statements out there in her voice.”

Banfill poked fun at the Holocaust with what appeared to be an ironic reply. “This is about remembering the Holocaust. Never forget.”

“Yup… or Darfur or Armenia or Rwanda or Bosnia (which PS is where my husband served),” Houghton replied. “Does she want us to do one for each other those remembrance days as well?”

With the appearance of a Palestinian flag on the floor of the Democratic convention, it should be clear by now which party is pro-Israel and a friend of the Jews, and which is not. But judging by the political sympathies of my fellow Jews, the point still somehow needs to be made.

Video || Mike Pence Shows Trump LOTS of Respect

This is odd for a vice presidential candidate, to be so deferential.

Mike Pence today shared the stage with Donald Trump at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention, refering to Trump as “Mr. Trump” and “my new boss” and that it’s an “honor to stand” with him and blah blah blah.

Meantime, Trump treats him like kind of a pet. “Mike, say a few words . . . ” in a tone of, Be my guest. and then Mike speaks for three minutes or so.

Video || Democrats Acting Like Slobs at the Convention

Apparently, Democrats are turning the convention arena into a pig pen.

I’ve never covered a Democratic convention, but I have covered several GOP conventions. I don’t remember any scenes like this.

Buhhht, I have covered, generally speaking, lots of Democrats and lots of Republicans politicians and their aides. I can tell you that Democrats — and these are the “elite,” in Washington — have fouler mouths, are always late, are more disrespectful, and often dress too informally, even sloppily. At the White House, they’ve all got their feet on the furniture.

Think of what the Democratic agenda is. It’s mainly about jettisoning what’s left of decorum and decency. It only makes sense that this would be true.
