He did not speak of the Central American caravan, he was speaking of Jewish immigrants. He is anti-Semitic. Still just as sick though.

No, Daisy.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society actually helps and assists immigrants from all over the world, not just Jews.

It is truly, a philanthropic organization.

I just made a $25 donation to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in NY.

I will soon be making a donation to an organization that helps immigrants along the southern border.

I have also donated to them. This organization helped my grandparents settle in the US back in the 1920s. They help immigrants world wide, regardless of faith.

I spent last evening at a community vigil that was held at my synagogue. People of all faiths and backgrounds came together to express solidarity and affirm the community's stand against hate, racism, anti-Semitism, gender discrimination, etc. It gave me hope that we can persist against the growing tide of terror that has become prominent in this country.

I applaud the city of Pittsburgh for not wanting the president to visit until he denounces his self-proclaimed Nationalism. Trump has an opportunity here to take a stand against domestic terror and influence the tone of things in this country. I am not optimistic he is up to the task.

I'm still a bit struck by how Trump so easily changed the foundation of the GOP agenda from conservatism to nationalism. Nary a RNC political leader questioned the shift.

They won't question it. For the most part, they are spineless and want him to stump for them at their campaign rallies, so they wont say boo.

Because #1 it's still their agenda of tax cuts, less regulations and less spending but for more spending on the military. #2 they want to get re-elected and right now they can't if they make an enemy of Trump.

#3 Why are you surprised?

Back to the topic of the thread:

I guess now we see why we should not just simply believe a "victim" just because she is a woman (or fill in any other). At least one of the Kavanaugh accusers has admitted she lied and made up the story just to cause trouble for him and derail the appointment of him to the Supreme court. Hence the need for innocent until PROVEN guilty.

Kavenaugh was never charged with a crime, therefore "innocent until proven guilty" does not really apply here. However, there did seem to be enough other credible accusers to warrant a thorough investigation before voting on his confirmation, which did not happen.

Mueller was accused last week of improprieties, and he referred that to the FBI immediately. Kavenaugh, when accused, had a temper tantrum at a Senate hearing. Which reaction seems more guilty?

Kavanaugh wasn't on trial, Daisy.

He was simply being questioned by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

So, innocent until proven guilty didn't apply.

It was a tag line used by Trump to distract.

You apparently bought the line, just as Trump intended.

I don't know what Kavanaugh did, or didn't do.

I do know his performance was unworthy a US Supreme Court Justice.

Retired justice Stevens agrees with me.

He said he lacked the necessary temperament.

Quite frankly, he behaved like a spoiled brat.
