The story is not about Jews hiding, but being open and refusing to submit....

Maybe not actively malicious, but passively malicious. It's the progressive word view and seeing the story through an intersectional lense, which is harmful.

There is no safe level of the Democrat's liberalism.

I take the liberty to revise your explanation of Hanukkah to include a few more details: that the story is actually about the Jews defeating Antiochus IV in a huge military victory, enabling them to take back and reconsecrate the temple which - importantly - was located in Jerusalem, along with the story of one day's supply of oil lasting eight days. And these events took place nearly 2200 years ago. But for Doug Emhoff to include such details would be contrary to the Progressive narrative about Jewish "colonizers," and cause friction at home since his spouse is calling for mandatory cease-fire rather than, as you state, "refusing to submit."

"Joe Biden is using President Zelensky as a prop against the GOP. Biden will blame the GOP for a lack of funding and use that lack of funding to both blame the GOP for a strategic failure in Ukraine and force Zelensky to compromise on land."

Never let a crisis go to waste. Utilitarian Joe gets a 3-fer on this one

1) Force Ukraine's hand

2) Avoid border protection

3) GOP is the author of all evil in this world

Sheesh.

Actually, I think Biden is a "lying, dog-faced pony soldier." He has a few other problems, too.

There are zero recent examples of Democrats compromising in good faith. They take their slim majority and push their radical agenda and destructive policies down everyone’s throats. Because, you know, they are the chosen people smarter than the American public. Republicans need to stop expecting it and play hardball instead.

Re: Jewish Holidays.

Pretty much all of them can be summed up as: "They attacked us. They tried to kill us. We beat them".

Absolutely, but don't forget, at the end of all that: " Let's eat."

The MSM press corps spins the narrative that the left leaning politicians want out there. The reason for limited push-back, if any, from the GOP seems to be because the KNOW the dumb-masses of Americans who WATCH MSM believe anything they hear from MSM. The push-back when it comes seems like whining and is reported as such by the same MSM. You truly cannot have a properly functioning nation without FREE PRESS. It's ridiculous where we've gone to in this once great nation.

I very much favor a FREE PRESS. We should put into the Constitution. Wait, it is in the Constitution. Sigh! The FREE PRESS is not free due to its ideology.

The Democrats will never fund the border unless it’s to make it even more open…. I’m waiting for The White House Christmas tweet about Santa Claus visiting a manger at the North Pole. 😀

Because they can’t use the story that Mary and Joseph were homeless people - I’m sorry, unhoused - seeking refuge in Bethlehem due to persecution on their hometown of Nazareth because Al Gore already used that one years ago.

I have believed for some time now that Biden is not running the country. It becomes more evident every day. There is a snake out there somewhere.

A snake

Controlling a weasel.

Eagles may sore but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines or get wacked by a windmill.

G. Gordon Liddy called John Dean a rat because it would be insulting to weasels to call him a weasel.

Hey weasels are smart, cunning critters they would be controlling the Biden snake.

I might be wrong but I don't remember politics being so left versus right until he became president.

The Clintons say hello. I was a teen in the 80s, but the left hated Reagan - will cause a nuclear war… Barry perfected race baiting and balkanization of groups quite successfully.

As well as other members of the One World Gov.

It only does Joe want to not fund Ukraine spending. He wants to defund any efforts to Israel.

It’s not just to make the GOP look bad. He also wants there to be peace in both wars regardless of the outcome. So he can claim he brought peace to those two wars.

I can definitely see the false narrative now. “Joe Biden ended two wars…”

And if it doesn’t happen he can then say he tried to fund the Ukraine and Israel but those bad republicans blocked it, orange man bad”

And the media will lap it up.

Well the GOP needs to grow a pair and start holding press conferences and send out tv ads to say the truth.

If they don’t then it’s convincing to say they don’t care about winning.

Biden is more than willing to betray Israel and Ukraine for short term political goals, I fear. Why would any potential ally ever trust the U.S. again?

GOP will sit on their collective butts - they suck at the push back. One thing Trump was good at, but DeSantis is great at.

Expand full comment

Why would the GOP push back? There's no extra pay in it for them. Gotta remember: Democrats are in it to win it, at any cost. Republicans are only in it to get paid.

Probably put the funding for Israel in here as well. I suspect he is already in trouble with the antisemite left and this way he can pretend he is supporting Israel and blame Maga Republicans

Biden was for Israel until Michigan. It’s interesting to see HRC entering the room in a big way to support Israel as Biden mentally falters. Watch this one closely….

Whoever wrote that -do they never check anything? Or do they just make stuff up As they go along. This is just silly carelessness.

I think that alot of the shallowness of the people putting out press releases is because they aren't religious. And, even if they think they are, it's a diluted version taught in 50 minute segments in childhood with no study of the actual books or reference such as the Bible, Torah, etc. Deep thought, haha.
