Michael Applebaum, Montreal’s first Jewish and now ex-mayor, has been found guilty of eight of fourteen charges levelled against him. The judge was convinced beyond all reasonable doubt that Applebaum had committed most of the crimes of which he was accused. Gulp.
We are guessing that this will be appealed. We are also guessing that at one point Applebaum will indeed find himself behind bars.
Don’t you wonder if he didn’t come forward to be the interim mayor that maybe none of this would have happened? One also has to wonder if in fact he did some of the things which he is accused of, didn’t he think that someone would find out? Blanche actually went to city hall as we wanted to be witness to Montreal’s first Jewish mayor be sworn in. We did not go to the courthouse today to see Montreal’s first Jewish ex-mayor receive a guilty verdict.
Blanche, you may think that Trump is the least popular president, even though he’s been on the job for five days. In fact, Mexico’s president, President Enrique Peña Nieto is more unpopular. He certainly did not help his case by cancelling his meeting with Trump. Right now, even though Trump is not very popular, he’s on a roll and will literally roll right over Nieto if he’s not careful.
Theresa May, Prime Minister of Great Britain on the other hand, gets it. She probably thinks Trump is nuts, but she knows which side her bread is buttered on.
When people sit face to face at a table, much more gets accomplished than tweeting insults and stupidity back and forth. Just saying.
Last night there was a march called Muslims Lives Matter. Why? Because President Trump signed an executive order that imposes a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen and all Muslim-majority nations.
Can we talk? He’s right despite what bleeding heart liberals say. Europe is infested with angry muslim men, some born there others imported from places like Syria.
If you are not a muslim, then you are an infidel and must die by the sword, or a bomb in an airport, or a truck running over crowds of people, or by machine gunning people at a concert or eating at an outside bistro.
Of course not all muslims are terrorists. But all terrorists are muslims and if the United States doesn’t want to wind up like Europe, Trump is doing the right thing.
Black Lives Matter. Muslim Lives Matter. White Lives Matter. Dogs Lives Matter. Morris the Account’s life matters. My kugel’s life matters.
We’re not done yet so if you are a tree-hugging, save the whales and the turtles person (we won’t discuss your gender or lack thereof), you may need a valium after reading this.
Trump targeted what are known as ‘sanctuary cities and counties’, which generally do not comply with federal requests to detain undocumented immigrants who have been arrested on charges unrelated to their immigration status and turn them over to the federal authorities for possible deportation. He said he will cut their funding if they continue this way.
Again he’s right. If someone comes to another country illegally and then commits a crime, buddy, don’t let the door hit your butt on the way out. Why should they be allowed to stay? Because it would o.f.f.e.n.d. them? A person could bust.
Blanche, can you believe that hundreds and hundreds of people are still shocked that they can’t bring weapons on a plane? Seriously. We think they must be living in a trailer park in the mountains in Oklahoma. Alas such is not the case. They live close enough to be able to travel.
So what has been taken from people? Chainsaws, sabers, baseball bats wrapped in barbed wire hockey sticks, live smoke grenades, loaded spear guns and barbells. Can we talk? These people have to be eating roadkill for breakfast lunch and supper. Otherwise they would have figured out a long time ago that grenades are weapons.
Heard today on the radio, Montreal is considering public bathrooms at a cost of $250 million for 12 bathrooms. Ya think it comes with toilet paper or we have to bring our own? And who in their right mind would go to a public bathroom say, on the street? Listen to your mother and go before you leave the house. Eliminates a lot of issues, if you get the drift.
Good Shabbos we’ll talk…
