Don't defend an error when you know you are wrong. Most often you can't fool others. You can fool yourself.

Ivanka Trump's Rabbi: "She Attends Early Morning Minyan"
Rabbi Hier, the rabbi at President Donald Trump's inauguration who is also close with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, was interviewed by Israel's Channel 2's News Reporter and Anchorwoman Sivan Rahav Meir at his office in the Los Angeles Simon Wiesenthal Center.
"I also got permission to actually say 'If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill' in Hebrew," Rabbi Hier began. "But then what happened was, on the morning of the inauguration, somebody from the inauguration committee came over to me and said, 'Rabbi, we have a dilemma.
The Latino representative, he also came to us for permission to recite one of the Hallelujahs in Hebrew. It would seem like all the quotes will be in Hebrew."
Rabbi Hier talked about Ivanka and JAred as well saying, "Not only do they come to my lessons, they come to other scholars' lessons.
"But yes, they come, and I can tell you that I've seen with my own eyes that… when you have an early minyan, and it's… at 7 o'clock on a holiday morning, the only woman there with the first arrivals is Ivanka.
"If the minyan started at seven, and you're at Hallel at 7:45, she's long there… They're wonderful people, and whatever advice I'm sure they're going to give their father, or father-in-law, will be good advice on behalf of the state of Israel.
"I'm honored to be the first Orthodox rabbi in the history of the inauguration to deliver a prayer."
Rabbi Hier had a few opinions of his own about the inauguration. "Why are the Obamas there? Why are the Bushes? And what about Jimmy Carter? Not a great friend of the State of Israel," he said.
"What are they doing there? They're there because it's the right thing to do.
"Absolutely [I saw feedback about my participation]. It never occurred to me that anti-Semitism only the naive people in the world think there are no anti-Semites.
"The world hates to see a rabbi with a yarmulka.
"These anti-Semites, when they see a rabbi with a yarmulka, they think, 'Oh my G-d, the Moshiach (Messiah) is here already! Look at this, a rabbi with a yarmulka is at the inauguration.
"Good. Let them not sleep. It's wonderful for them to see that," Rabbi Hier concluded.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today.
Jefferson really knew his stuff.
A voice from the past to lead us in the future:
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."
"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe ." Thomas Jefferson
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." Thomas Jefferson
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." Thomas Jefferson
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." Thomas Jefferson
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government." Thomas Jefferson
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." Thomas Jefferson
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Thomas Jefferson
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Thomas Jefferson
"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
Do You Remember Sam Levenson?
Remember Sam Levenson? Not enough people do. He was such a clever man but time has diminished the memory of his wit. I thought I'd resurrect him, as his words today are as pithy as they were when he wrote them.
"Many wise words are spoken in jest, but they don't compare with the number of stupid words spoken in earnest." "The first screw to get loose in your head is the one that holds your tongue in place."
"A goat also has a beard, but that doesn't make him a rabbi." "You're only young once. After that it takes some other excuse for behaving like an idiot."
"Even if the majority agrees on an idiotic idea, it is still an idiotic idea."
"The greatness of this or any country may still be measured by the number of people trying to get IN vs. The number trying to get OUT." "The best defense of our country is to keep it at all times WORTH defending."
"War doesn't prove who is right; only who is left."
"War is better at abolishing nations than nations are at abolishing wars."
"You can't shake hands with a clenched fist."
"The U.N. Has been as effective against war as foghorns have been against Fog." "Behind every successful Jew stands a bigot who could not stop him."
"There are more important things in life than money. The trouble is they all cost money."
The heading is cut off below on the man thowing his child up in the air. The first picture is how he sees it, the second is how the child sees it, and the third is how his wife sees it.
Better be careful (joke)
WRONG E-MAIL ADDRESS
This one is priceless. A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day
The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston , a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack.
The widow decided to check her e-mail expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.
The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife Subject: I've Arrived Date: July 19, 2010
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in.
I've seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
S. Sure is freaking hot down here!!!!

BREAKING: Orthodox Jewish Youth's Finger Sawed Off in Anti-Semitic Paris Attack
BREAKING: Orthodox Jewish Youth's Finger Sawed Off in Anti-Semitic Paris Attack
Two young kippah wearing brothers were violently beaten by a gang of Middle Eastern looking men in Paris. One of the youths reportedly had his finger sawed off by one of the assailants in an apparent anti-Semitic attack which preceded with shouts of "Dirty Jewish (expletive) you will die!"
The BNVCA ( Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism ) reported Thursday that the two young men, who are sons of one of the community leader in the town of Bondy in Paris.
The two young Jews were riding in their vehicle on the RN3 street when they were spotted and approached by two occupants of a pick-up truck, who initially cut them off and tried to swerve them off the road.
The aggressors insulted them, shouting "Dirty Jewish (expletive) you will die!" The victims reported they were forced off the road near a Hooka bar and were violently kicked and punched. The assailants also warned them "If you move we will kill you!" according to the BNVCA report.
One of the assailants was armed with a saw-knife which he used to cut a finger off from the hand of one of the young victims.
The assailants then fled and the victims managed to drive to the hospital where they were described to be in shock and wounded. The police came to the hospital where they interviewed the young Jews and they took their complaint. The police are looking for the anti-Jewish aggressors, who are thought to be a father and son team on Middle-Eastern descent.
The BNVCA has is lending all support to the Jewish youths and has appointed two of their staff Mr. Sabine Tourjman and Mr. Charles Baccouche to be at disposal of the two Jewish victims to defend their interests and to assist them in pursuing justice.
The last major attack against Jews in France was at the HyperCacher supermarket on 9 January 2015, when Islamist terrorist Amedy Coulibaly held several hostages at gunpoint at the Porte de Vincennes branch in the eastern suburbs of Paris. Four Jewish hostages were murdered by Coulibaly, who then was killed by police.
