Is Trump Having An Affair With Nikki Haley?

From The Wrap:

“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff’s accusation that President Trump is currently having an affair set off online speculation Saturday about who the other party might be. Based on Wolff’s clues, it appears he’s making insinuations about UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

A quick side note before we go further: This is gross on every level. We don’t have any evidence whatsoever to suggest that what Wolff is hinting at is true, so please consider this a story about an author making an accusation he admits he can’t prove.

That said, Wolff went on “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday to provide some encouragement to readers who may have given up halfway through “Fire and Fury” when he said a passage near the end of his book hints at the affair.

“Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph you’re going to say bingo,” Wolff told Maher.

We’ve read the book. While there are icky descriptions about Trump’s behavior with his spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, they come before the book’s midway point. (“You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have!” Trump is quoted as telling Hicks about an ex, which Wolff says sent Hicks “running from the room.”)

The only passage we’ve found near the end of the book that references a Trump relationship with a woman who isn’t his wife or daughter is this one:

By October, however, many on the president’s staff took particular notice of one of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley — ‘as ambitious as Lucifer,” in the characterization of one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.

Bingo? Wolff adds that Trump “had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a political future.”

Wolff cited one “senior Trumper” who said the problem with Trump mentoring Haley “is that she is so much smarter than him.”

Sundance film festival debuts dark tale of Jewish triplets split at birth

From Times of Israel:

The triplets, it turned out, were among a number of identical siblings split up as part of a dark 1960s “nature versus nurture” social experiment led by psychoanalyst Peter Neubauer of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services in Manhattan.

Visits by researchers throughout their childhoods were explained away as a “child development study” when in reality Neubauer was scrutinizing the brothers’ personalities and relationships with their very diverse adoptive families.

“We really didn’t understand just how egregiously these people behaved,” said Kellman, who told AFP all six adoptive parents were angered that they too had been kept in the dark.

“As we got older, got married, became parents ourselves, we realized how impactful it was.”

…No one has ever apologized to Shafran or Kellman, and the Jewish Board declined to take part in the documentary.

A spokeswoman told AFP it was “committed to providing identified Neubauer study participants access to their records in a timely and transparent manner.”

It is not the kind of language that sits easily with the brothers, however.

“They refer to us as participants,” says Kellman. “We weren’t participants, we were victims.”

Alt Right Torah – Parasha Beshalach (Exodus 13:17–17:16)

According to Wikipedia: “In this parashah, Pharaoh changes his mind and sends his army after the Jewish people, trapping them at the Sea of Reeds. God commands Moses to split the sea, allowing them to pass, then closes the sea back upon the Egyptian army. It also contains the miracles of manna and clean water.”

Exodus 13: 17 When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”

War is rarely the Jews first choice.

13:18: “The Children of Israel were armed when they went up from Egypt…”

So they weren’t pacifists. They didn’t just rely on God to take care of them.

* Ex. 14:5: “When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them and said, “What have we done? We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!””

This reminds me of when you have a girl you’re sick of but you don’t want another guy to have her.

Keeping people around as slaves does not serve you because the slaves hate you and will want revenge. Instead, you want to take the approach of Donnie Azoff in The Wolf of Wall Street:

Donnie Azoff: “Well, basically, you know, if the kid was retarded I would… I would, you know, drive it up to the country and just like, you know, open the door and let it… say “You’re free now!” You know? Like, “Run free!” You know?”

Ex. 14:23: “The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He jammed[b] the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving.”

Sounds like what happens whenever you invade a country you have no business being in, like the US invading Afghanistan in 2002 and Iraq in 2003.

* I’m watching this National Geographic documentary series Chain of Command and it is so gay. The whole premise is that it is tracking America’s war against “violent extremism.” Was the Bombing of Dresden violent extremism? How about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? “Violent extremism” has no objective meaning. If you said, “War against Islam”, then the phrase would have meaning. If you said, “War against our enemies”, that would have mean. Instead, the series feels like you are watching America drag its slimy tranny dick over the face of the world.

Women keep showing up in the program to remind you that they have no place in the armed forces except as secretaries and nurses. Instead, this series shows them carrying guns and carrying out drone strikes and lecturing military officers of human rights.

ISIS has done some bad things, but at least they’ve never allowed feminism, never allowed women to vote, and never allowed women to lecture their fighters on human rights.

The most amazing thing to me is not that Ross Levinsohn (as a sales guy) would say and do the things he did, but that the LAT newsroom is both so sensitive and so gay

Read the embedded tweets.

The LA Times has about the most queer newsroom in the country, hence the hyperbolic super-sensitivity to this story. And if the Times reporters are so awesome, how come they didn’t have this story?

If I had to bet, when Levinsohn said he didn’t want to eat lunch with a bunch of ladies and fags, he both meant it as a joke and it was taken as a joke by those he said it to.

As far as hiring bikini models on a yacht off of France, I guess the reporters have no idea how high level sales guys get business. He is accused of kissing someone in front of them, but it was not someone he assaulted and forced himself on. He did rate women and speculated if some woman was sleeping with someone else and if someone was a part time stripper. This is very low level stuff, but we have moved into the cultural revolution (a la Mao Tse Tung) period of “criticism-self criticism” when it comes to sexual conduct. On the other hand, he has been sued for sexual harassment twice, so maybe he has done far worse than what made the NPR story.

WP: David Gelernter, fiercely anti-intellectual computer scientist, is being eyed for Trump’s science adviser

Washington Post:

Computer scientist David Gelernter, a Yale University professor who has decried the influence of liberal intellectuals on college campuses, is being considered for the role of the Donald Trump’s science adviser. Gelernter met with the president-elect at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday, according to press secretary Sean Spicer.

Gelernter is a pioneer in the field of parallel computation, a type of computing in which many calculations are carried out simultaneously. The programming language he developed in the 1980s, Linda, made it possible to link together several small computers into a supercomputer, significantly increasing the amount and complexity of data that computers can process. Since then he has written extensively about artificial intelligence, critiquing the field’s slow progress and warning of AI’s potential dangers.

In 1993, Gelernter was seriously injured by a letter bomb sent by Ted Kaczynski, the anti-technology terrorist known as the Unabomber.

Beyond computer science circles, Gelernter has made a name for himself as a vehement critic of modern academia. In his 2013 book, “America-Lite: How Imperial Academia Dismantled Our Culture (and Ushered in the Obamacrats),” he condemned “belligerent leftists” and blamed intellectualism for the disintegration of patriotism and traditional family values. He attributed the decline in American culture to “an increasing Jewish presence at top colleges.” (Gelernter himself is Jewish.)
