It's probably the first bimbo Melania.

As usual for anyone connected to Trump, she exaggerated her accomplishments, including laying claim to a degree

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/melania-trump-s-bio-now-says-she-paused-her-studies-n685181

You'll remember Trump retweeted a post that describes Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly as a “bimbo” alongside one of
her past photo spreads.

These are tame in comparison to his own wife.

kingdragonfly: I now have 45 seconds. I won't take them all. But it is repugnant to me and astonishing to me that during Christmas -- I like to call them "the holiday season" to be inclusive -- but during Christmas because the majority always wants to just call it Christmas.

That during Christmas, a time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, a Jesus Christ who had to flee for his life with Mary and Joseph, thank God there wasn't a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt. Thank God that wall wasn't there. And thank God there wasn't an administration like this, or he would have too, have perished on the 28th, on the Day of Innocents, when Herod ordered the murder of every child under 2 years of age.

Maybe I haven't gone a lot to Bible School. But I know that part. Thank God. Shame on everybody that separates children and allows them to stay at the other side of the border, fearing death. Fearing hunger. Fearing sickness. Shame on us for wearing our badge of Christianity during Christmas and allow the secretary to come here and lie.

 

Quoted this because it's the truth. These "Christians" are only "Christians" when convenient to collect a vote, when convenient to their racism, when convenient to the their pocket.

I know it's a comic cartoon, but they have the pyramid and sphinx on the wrong side. If any of it happened, they were fleeing from Egypt, not to it.

What what it's worth, the town of Nazareth most likely didn't exist when Joseph fled, but was founded later.

Some scholars have stated the story didn't actually happen, but was appropriated. It may have been created to liken Jesus to Moses to appeal to a Judean audience.

Lastly nothing was written about Mary's virgin birth until 80-100 years after it happened, and then it was anonymous sources. It wasn't attributed to Matthew and Luke till 200 years after the event.

If the virgin birth happened, it is odd that Mark and John didn't mention it. Also Matthew and Luke's accounts are very different.

So, whose nude selfie did Mueller probe managed to collect during investigations?

 

 

Where did that statement come from, MF? Is this a quiz?

McClatchyDC: Cell signal puts Cohen outside Prague around time of purported Russian meetingThe phone and surveillance data, which have not previously been disclosed, lend new credence to a key part of a former British spy’s dossier of Kremlin intelligence describing purported coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia’s election meddling operation.

The dossier, which Trump has dismissed as “a pile of garbage,” said Cohen and one or more Kremlin officials huddled in or around the Czech capital to plot ways to limit discovery of the close “liaison” between the Trump campaign and Russia.

McClatchy DC agency provides news wire services to 14 state daily newspapers. Cohen denies it.

Matthew 2:13–23 says the family went into Egypt when an angel told them King Herode was looking for the child to kill him.

 

@kingdragonfly: Some scholars have stated the story didn't actually happen, but was appropriated. It may have been created to liken Jesus to Moses to appeal to a Judean audience.

 

A lot of people don't believe any of which is described in that book happened...

The New York Times - The Inevitability of Impeachment

 

Dec. 27, 2018

 

Even Republicans may be deciding that the president has become too great a burden to their party or too great a danger to the country.

 

 

An impeachment process against President Trump now seems inescapable.

 

Unless the president resigns, the pressure by the public on the Democratic leaders to begin an impeachment process next year will only increase.
Too many people think in terms of stasis: How things are is how they will remain. They don’t take into account that opinion moves with events.

 

Whether or not there’s already enough evidence to impeach Mr. Trump, we will learn what the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has found, even if his investigation is cut short.
A significant number of Republican candidates didn’t want to run with Mr. Trump in the midterms, and the results of those elections didn’t exactly strengthen his standing within his party.
His political status, weak for some time, is now hurtling downhill.

 

The midterms were followed by new revelations in criminal investigations of once-close advisers as well as new scandals involving Mr. Trump himself.
The odor of personal corruption on the president’s part - perhaps affecting his foreign policy - grew stronger.
Then the events of the past several days - the president’s precipitous decision to pull American troops out of Syria, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis’s abrupt resignation, the swoon in the stock market, the pointless shutdown of parts of the government - instilled a new sense of alarm among many Republicans. ...

About that Syria exit - isn’t the withdrawal of troops from the Middle East in line with NZ Green Party policy?

I’m sure that there’s also a noun for someone who is unable/unwilling to engage in discourse with others who don’t share their outlook without resorting to name calling.

I’m curious - will the Greens applaud Trump’s decision because it aligns with their thinking, or will they criticise it because Trump made it?

I suppose the Greens could simply say, “even a broken clock tells the right time twice a day”
But I’m interested in their response because they seem to be “accidentally aligned” with an unlikely ally, and it will be interesting to see how they respond. (On principle, or on personality)

I'm not sure there is a serious point to discuss here, but for most informed commentators the issue is not the withdrawal, but the manner in which it was done. I doubt the Greens have a formal policy position on that, other than they probably find it regrettable when foreign political leaders act like idiots.
