Jared Kushner is married to Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In a White House sullied by ties to Russia and all sorts of unsavory characters from the fringe, Kushner was set to float above, surrounding himself with fellow figures from the elite worlds of Manhattan finance and real estate and deep-sixing the harder-edged ideas of the White House’s “nationalist” wing.

The news article continues with this quote:

Kushner and his representatives did not respond to requests for comment about this story. But those who know him from his days as a young New York real estate magnate and newspaper publisher say that America is just getting to know the Jared Kushner they have always known, that beneath the unflappable golden exterior is someone unafraid to bungee jump or to counter-punch when he feels slighted.

“Polite elegance,” said his friend Strauss Zelnick, an entertainment mogul and founder of the private equity firm Zelnick Media Capital, when asked to describe Kushner’s modus operandi. But, Zelnick added, “He’s tough. In an exceedingly polite way, he is as tough as any one is in New York City real estate.”

The title of this blog post is a quote from a news article which you can read in full at

Begin quote from news article:

In one of the exhibits there, [at Auschwitz, the students] saw a room full of hair cut from the heads of Jewish victims some 75 years ago.

“They took their hair and made textiles out of it,” Ariel said. “That’s really, really hard. It’s part of you. That’s such a big identity thing to me. It’s a loss of your identity.”

They also saw a room full of shoes. Maybe 40,000 pairs of shoes, all gray and dusty now.

“There were baby shoes and high heels,” said Alex, who just graduated from Hilton Head Preparatory School and is looking forward to the College of Charleston. “It’s symbolic that it didn’t matter who you were before.”

They remarked that 40,000 pairs of shoes represent only a small fraction of the 6 million people murdered in the concentration camps of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party until Allies put a stop to it with the bloodbath of World War II.

The girls were amazed at the inhumanity.

End quote

I don’t think that students from all over the world should be brought to Auschwitz to see the displays. They should be studying about what the Jews did to cause the Germans to send them to camps.

I have a section on my scrapbookpages.com website about the displays:

Paul Ryan said this morning that 9-11 was an attack by a foreign government –who knew?

I was watching on TV today as Paul Ryan spoke about what is currently going on in the world today. He mentioned Donald Trump’s trip to Germany, where he was shown on TV walking with Angela Merkel.

Then Ryan mentioned that America was attacked by a foreign government on 9-11. He seems to believe that a foreign government destroyed buildings in New York City, which were owned by one man, but never struck again.  This was a one day attack. Very strange!

I have blogged until I am blue in the face about 9-11:
