Interesting questions, and to throw another curve at you consider this from wiki: "The Thirteenth Tribe" by The Thirteenth Tribe (1976) is a book by Arthur Koestler, which advances the thesis that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but from Khazars, a Turkic people. Koestler's hypothesis is that the Khazars converted to Judaism in the 8th century, and
migrated westwards into Eastern Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries when the Khazar Empire was collapsing.
However, I am less concerned about heritage than the grab of our media, the people's airwaves, to support one monolithic, exclusive world view.
June, that number is pathetic. All of these people yammering about how terrible Obama is and we have not seen anything yet. They sit on their hands waiting for someone else to do something. It is like they are afraid to put their name on something, because Obama's Goon squad will show up at their door. I have written Obama directly and called him everything except a human. I write my Senators and my House member asking them to empower me to arrest the crook as I was a Senior ranked Law Enforcement Officer in my life. I tell them they are scared of him. I tell them that Sheriff Joe from Arizona and I will go and sweep the trash out of "MY" White House, because I guess we are the only 2 people in this country that are not afraid of the Booggy Man. I get no response of course. Well, 2000 is better than none, not much, but we tried. We can be proud of that. Merry Christmas if I don't talk to you before then.
This is an open invitation for you. If I can assist you behind the scenes, let me know. I am not looking for glory and accalades. I am not that kind of person. See ya later, keep on keeping on.
Yes, I know about about the other petition and I have signed it. As far as House members and Senate members paying attention to us, all I have to say there is a better chance of people in Hell getting free ice water to go along with their medium rare Porterhouse steak dinners. I have the 3 Mousekateers for so called leadership roles where I live,(Salem, Oregon,the Capitol) 2 Senators of course, Merkley (OK) and Ron Wyden (glory grabbing puke) lives in NY city with his rich Prima Dona wife, because Portland, Oregon is not good enough for her. He only comes back to Oregon for major photo op's and re-elections. Oregon has not had a Republican Gov. for 30 years. Our present Gov. (I call him RETREAD) was Gov. once before for 2 terms and complained that Oregon was un-governerable. Him and his Girlfriend won't live in Salem in the Gov's. Mansion (I mean mansion) they have to live in Portland also. This means a state owned limo a state employee driver, 2 aids, 4 Oregon State Troopers for escorts and a huge Penthouse Loft and of course the commute 2 time a day and the auto upkeep, the fuel and the aids and the troopers stay in portland overnight all expenses paid at the Benson Hotel. This is where the Presidents stay when they come to town. To top all of this off, he made up a new job title for his girlfriend as a state job at $150,000.00 a year and all of the above is on the State Of Oregons tax payers dime. Sounds like a brother to Obama. This guy is a Caucasian, "EX" doctor. Lost his license. Malpractice. See ya and thanks for your hard work. When and if I can assist you, please do not hesitate to ask.

Your new friend here with the petition for the electorial col., Vernon Rice. There is a conservative talk radio gentleman here that would love nothing more than to send THE MAN WHO CALLS HIMSELF THE PRESIDENT down the road with a can tied to his tail. His name is "LARS LARSON." He has a so called local show that covers the entire state of Oregon and a big chunk of SW Washington state. He has 2 email addresses as follows: email@example.com and his shows= firstname.lastname@example.org KXL 101.1FM Portland, Oregon. I do not have the radio stations phone #, but I do have Lar's shows phone #'s. They are the same. His local show starts here PST at 12:00 noon and his national show starts at 4:00 PM PST. When they answer, tell them who you are and I am sure you will not have to wait very long. You don't have to, but if you wish, tell him the watchdog from Salem turned you on to him. Keep him handy. He will work with you and for you.
Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment
House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.
Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.
Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.
Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.
In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.
Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,
Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.
Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.
Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.
The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.
In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
