The Wrong Sort of Jews

Jews across Europe are under siege by skinheads and Muslims out for blood.

Europe responds:

The French government is seeking to disband a militant Jewish group involved in recent clashes with pro-Palestinian activists during rallies against the Gaza offensive which turned violent, a source told AFP Thursday.

News of the mooted ban came as France’s main Jewish group prepared to stage a pro-Israel gathering in Paris, in response to weeks of protests marred by clashes, arrests and anti-Semitism.

Synagogues and Jewish-owned shops have been attacked by Muslim and left-wing extremists in Paris, prompting bans on protests as authorities have struggled to get to grips with the anti-Semitic surge. In one particularly severe incident, a mob of Muslim rioters attempted to storm a synagogue in an attack likened to “Kristallnacht” by one French Jewish community leader.

During that incident outside the Yitzhak Abarbanel synagogue, members of the Ligue de Defense Juive (LDJ) and other Jewish youths clashed with Islamists in an attempt to defend it.

French far-left and Muslim leaders have been calling for action against the LDJ, with the French Muslim council branding it “an extremist, racist and violent association.”

Establishment leaders of France’s half-million strong Jewish community have clearly distanced themselves from the LDJ, insisting it has not been asked to defend French synagogues.

Anti-Semitism in France has skyrocketed in recent years, prompting a mass-exodus of French Jews, primarily to Israel. 1% of the entire French Jewish community is expected to make aliyah in 2014.

The Jewish Defense League and Meir Kahane were not to everyone’s taste. But it’s now taken as fact that Kahane’s assassination was one of Al Qaeda’s earliest acts. And who would you rather see turn up if a pack of Islamist goons descended on your synagogue with torches and pitchforks—the Jewish Defense League or the ObamaCare Pajama Boy?

Patronizin’, Degradin’, Grandstandin’

This ain’t right:

“There’s a loophole in the tax code that lets a small but growing group of corporations leave the country; they declare themselves no longer American companies just to get out of paying their fair share of taxes — even though most of their operations are here,” Obama explained in his normal tone.

Then, things just got weird.

“It hurts our country’s finances, and it adds to the deficit and sticks you with the tab — because if they’re not paying their share and stashing [-in'] their money offshore, you don’t have that option,” Obama said of the tax trick. “It ain’t right. Not only is it not right, it ain’t right. It ain’t right. I hope everybody is clear on the distinction. There are some things are not right. And then there’s some things that just ain’t right. And this ain’t right.”

It was as if Chris Rock’s character Mays Gilliam from “Head of State” was trapped in President Obama’s body on stage in Kansas City.

President Obama mimicking [-in'] and mingling [-in'] with celebrities while the crises at the southern border and abroad ensue? “That ain’t right,” our lawmakers might say.

Never mind that the US has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world. That to pay such usurious rates voluntarily is not in the interest of the shareholders or the clients of any business. Payin’ taxes is patriotic didn’ you know?

But he weren’t done:

I am repulsed by his faux populism, but let me quote someone else on the subject:

Samuel L. Jackson has blasted Barack Obama for ‘promoting mediocrity’ in the United States by ‘dumbing down’ the way he speaks to ordinary Americans.

In an expletive-filled tirade about – of all things – grammar, Jackson told the President to ‘be f*****g presidential.’

The Holywood legend, who publicly backed Obama in 2008 and 2012, questioned why the Harvard-educated former law professor chooses to drop the letter ‘g’ from the end of his words.

‘First of all, we know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to “relate.”
‘Be a leader. Be f******g presidential. Look, I grew up in a society where I could say “It ain’t” or “What it be” to my friends.

‘But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family who cared about me, who has a well-read background, I f*****g conjugate’.

What’s that, Jesse? You don’t like it either? Speak up:

Not everyone’s a critic, however:

[Reid] was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.

Reid had to apologize, but he was right on all counts. And boy does Obama want to have a dialect now, be it “Negro” or “dumbed down”.

The Only Way to Fly…to Israel

Aggie:

Just so you know not everything British sucks:

After a brief period during which several international airlines cancelled flights to Israel over rocket attack fears, flights to and from Ben Gurion International Airport have largely returned to normal now.

In hindsight the episode may feel like a minor blip, but had Israel not convinced the airlines in questions – and most notably the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which prevented all US airlines from flying for several days – that they were overreacting, the Israeli economy could have taken a much harder hit.

With that in mind activists from the Bnei Akiva religious-Zionist youth movement have taken it upon themselves to thank one of the few major European airlines which carried on flying to and from the Jewish state, even as others would not.

Activists presented roses and letters of appreciation to British Airways crew members as they landed in Ben Gurion, to the obvious delight of pilots and other flight staff.

“We will be giving every single crew member an individually-wrapped rose, coming from the love of our chanichim (members) and from our alumni around the world, showing our appreciation for them coming and supporting Israel during this difficult time,” said Daniel Winer, a member of World Bnei Akiva.

Here’s someone who won’t be giving BA staff a rose, however:

In a recent TV interview, Osama Hamdan, top Hamas representative in Lebanon and a member of the Hamas political bureau, said:

The Israelis concentrate on killing children. I believe that this is engraved in the historical Zionist and Jewish mentality, which has become addicted to the killing of women and children.

We all remember how the Jews used to slaughter Christians, in order to mix their blood in their holy matzos. This is not a figment of imagination or something taken from a film. It is a fact, acknowledged by their own books and by historical evidence. It happened everywhere, here and there.

I thought the crackers with the cheese plate on my recent British Airways flight had a funny taste.

UN Clinic Booby Trapped, Killing 3 IDF Soldiers

Not only do they need to eliminate tunnels, the UN must leave Gaza

Three IDF soldiers were killed on Wednesday in Gaza in an explosion at a booby-trapped UNRWA health clinic that housed the opening of a tunnel, the IDF’s Gaza Division commander, Brig. Gen. Micky Edelstein, said.

The clinic had apparently been abandoned by its UN personnel. UNRWA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The army named the soldiers as Staff Sgt. Matan Gotlib, 21, of Rishon Lezion, Staff Sgt. Omer Chai, 21, of Savion, and Sgt. Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv.

The three soldiers, members of the elite Maglan unit, were taking precautionary measures in efforts to limit damage to the structure before eliminating the tunnel, when the explosives detonated in the small building.

The soldiers had sent in sniffing dogs and a small robot to minimize damage to the structure, located in Khan Yunis, but explosives rigged to the building detonated, toppling part of the building on top of the soldiers.

Fifteen soldiers were injured. IDF soldiers evacuating the wounded came under fire from Palestinian fighters. All of the fatalities and injured were eventually brought back to Israeli territory.

The deaths brought the toll of IDF soldiers killed since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge to 56.

“Once you enter such a clinic and you see the UNRWA sigh on it and you know there is a terror tunnel there, you know it’s a very very sensitive building, and you’re thinking of the not-terrorist Palestinians living there all around, and you’re trying not to harm this place,” Edelstein said.

The UN is a terrorist organization.

We May Be A-Holes, But We Ain’t No…

I can’t say it, but while we’re on the subject of bodily orifices:

An email exchange released by a Republican-led House committee investigating scrutiny by Lerner’s unit of GOP political groups seeking tax-exempt status suggest she’s no fan of conservative talk radio.

“Well, you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP … The right-wing radio shows are scary to listen to,” read an email to Lerner from an unidentified sender in November 2012 as Congress was probing the matter.

“Great. Maybe we are through if there are that many a**holes,” Lerner replies.

“And I’m talking about the hosts of the shows. The callers are rabid,” another email to Lerner, apparently from the same person, shows.

“So we don’t need to worry about alien terrorists. It’s our own crazies that will take us down,” Lerner responds.

I don’t have a problem with the language. I hear it every day out and about, sometimes from flesh and blood. But I do have a problem with who said it. And what she could have done to my…orifice by any number of her jack-booted thugs. No wonder she tried to claw the files off her hard drive with her gnarled talons.

And it’s not just conservatives:

Emails uncovered by the House Ways and Means Committee show that the State Department was involved in the IRS’s attempt to deny tax-exempt status to Z-Street, the pro-Israel organization founded and run by AT contributor Lori Lowenthal Marcus, based on Z-Street’s pro-Israel positions that conflicted with Obama administration policy. This is known as “viewpoint discrimination,” and is strictly illegal.

In an April 16, 2009 email, Treasury attache to the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem Katherine Bauer sent IRS and Treasury colleagues a 1997 JTA News article sent to her by State Department foreign service officer Breeann McCusker. The subject was whether 501(c) groups buying land in Israel’s disputed territories were engaged in “possible violations of U.S. tax laws.” The article chronicles the controversy and whether “ideological activity” can “legally be financed with the help of U.S. [tax] dollars.”

“Thought you might find the below article of interest—looks like we’ve been down this road before,” Ms. Bauer wrote. “Although I believe you’ve said you can’t speak to on-going investigations, I thought it was worth flagging the 1997 investigation mentioned below for you if it can be of any use internally when looking for precedence [sic] for the current cases.” A Treasury spokesman declined comment on Ms. Bauer’s behalf.

The “current cases” would have been applications like Z Street’s in which Israel-related activity was apparently being scrutinized for its ideological and policy content. The government says Z Street got special scrutiny because it was focused in a region with a higher risk of terrorism, which is hard to believe and in any case doesn’t explain all of the IRS’s behavior.

It doesn’t cover, for instance, why one questionnaire we’ve seen from the IRS to another Jewish group applying for tax-exempt status asked, “Does your organization support the existence of the land of Israel?” and “Describe your organization’s religious belief system toward the land of Israel.” No matter the answers, they should not affect the processing of an application for 501(c) status. The State-IRS emails reveal a political motivation for IRS scrutiny that gives Z Street powerful evidence for its suit charging IRS bias.

This is now a scandal that involves a conspiracy between different departments of the federal government, strongly implying a coordinating effort senior to the Departments of State and Treasury. Which would be…the White House.

This is so incriminating that a full court press is being invoked to delay further discovery. The lawsuit filed by Z-Street in 2010 is the furthest along of any judicial inquiries into the IRS scandals. And the IRS is doing everything possible to slow it down:

On Monday the IRS filed an appeal of the judge’s decision denying its motion to dismiss Z Street’s case. The government says the action stops all discovery while the appeal is pending, a process that could take months or even years. By filing the appeal on the last possible day, the Justice Department is running out the clock on discovery during the remainder of the Administration.

This is a whole lot of effort to prevent discovery in a case that is not even seeking damages.

Maybe you believe this is nothing, or very little. Maybe you think nothing of an IRS Commissioner signing into the White House hundreds of times during the period in question. Maybe you think it was entirely normal for the revolutionary Tea Party spirit of 2010 to have evaporated into thin air by 2012. And maybe you think this “most transparent administration ever” contents itself with critics and alternate viewpoints. You can think that, it’s a free country.

But here in Literalville, we have a saying: whatever you’re smoking, I want some.

PS: And maybe you think that a regime that persecutes pro-Israel nonprofits and that insists on an armistice that leaves a genocidal gang of killers in power truly “has Israel’s back”. Lay off that [bleep], man. It’s scrambling your brain.

Andy Griffith Beats Rachel Maddow

Now, that’s a pay-per-view I’d shell out for!

But it’s a figurative beating, not a literal one:

What’s most disconcerting for MSNBC might be its total day average among the news demo of adults 25-54. Dropping 33 percent from July 2013, it actually ranked below HLN by 16,000 viewers for No. 4 status.

To be sure, it wasn’t a particularly outstanding month for most of the networks. In primetime and total day, CNN, MSNBC and HLN all were off double digits in the targeted demographic compared to a year ago. FNC, which easily retains the top slot, had the benefit of being up a tick (2 percent) in primetime for an average 299,000 adults 25-54.

There also are individual races that proved more interesting than usual. In the morning, CNN’s New Day overtook MSNBC’s Morning Joe in the key demo, 93,000 to 79,000 viewers. At 5 p.m., FNC’s The Five hit its third month at No. 1 among total viewers across all of cable — beating Nickelodeon’s longtime vet and kid-pleaser SpongeBob SquarePants.

And in the evening, Rachel Maddow was only marginally improved from her lowest month ever in June, averaging 181,000 viewers in the key demo. (FNC’s Megyn Kelly, by contrast, enjoyed her second-highest-rated month since launch with an especially strong 386,000 adults 25-54.)

It’s also worth noting that Kelly and Maddow no longer see traditional news competition from CNN at 9 p.m. ET. Doc special The Sixties, which has been airing in the hour on Thursdays, has averaged 291,000 adults 25-54 over the course of its seven premiere telecasts. It now regularly outperforms Maddow.

That means Ozzie and Harriet—heck, Harriet by herself—kicks Maddow’s ass. Across this great nation of ours, almost 320 million strong, Maddow pulls the equivalent of Overland Park, Kansas to her show. She can’t even beat a series from half a century ago.

But then, America has taste. No aspersions intentionally cast, but if I want to look at a woman with a mannish haircut, I’m going to watch Andy’s squeeze, Helen Crump (Aneta Corsaut), over Rachel Maddow (Rachel Maddow) any day:

PS: I see Fox News Sunday beat Meet the Depressed too. They never should have gotten rid of Laurence Spivak. Talk about eye candy!

PPS: So what? MSNBC and CNN may trade places on the list of who’s the biggest joke, but Obama is still president. No wonder Maddow’s always smiling.

She Did Not Just Say That!

Hat tip to reader Jeanette in a comment below, but Hillary did:

“The problem is, and this is something, I’m not a military planner, but Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas, part of it is that Gaza’s pretty small and it’s very densely populated. They put their command-and-control of Hamas military leaders in those civilian areas,” Clinton said in an interview Monday with Univision’s “America with Jorge Ramos.”

Clinton also said she thinks “Hamas intended to provoke Israel” with rocket fire, but added that Hamas may have acted because it “has its back against the wall.”

Maybe it sounded better in the original Spanish.

This is not “misspeaking” or ignorance. Everybody knows why Hamass fires missiles and rockets from schools and hospitals; why it stores same in UN-run schools; why it dismisses Israeli warnings to civilians to evacuate as propaganda and lies. Hillary knows. Why she won’t speak of it, only Hillary knows.

PS: This is the wall against which Hamass “has its back”:

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

What’s Romney up to these days?

We followed family tradition this year by taking 5 of our 22 grandkids, ages 10 through 13, on a trip through the American West. My Mom and Dad began the tradition, showing their grandchildren the majesty of our country and teaching them about the sacrifices and character of the pioneers. We visited Goblin Valley, Spooky Gulch, Peekaboo Slot Canyon, Capitol Reef National Park, Bryce National Park, Zion National Park, Lake Powell, Rainbow Arch, Grand Canyon, and the four falls in the Havasupai Reservation. All totaled, we hiked over 50 miles: quite a feat for the young—and for Ann and me.

With the grandkids a captive audience, we taught them about their own ancestors: Ann’s side played instrumental roles in the foundation of the country, including William Bradford and Grover Cleveland. Mine were key to the establishment of our Church and the settlement of the American West.

The adventures were more than we had planned, with unexpected obstacles during our nine hour hike down the Subway trail of Zion National Park, a breathtaking descent to Mooney Falls in the Havasupai Reservation, and a very close encounter with a rattlesnake.

We came away more appreciative of the landscape God gave us, of the sacrifices of the pioneers, and of the comforts of air conditioning and home cooked meals!

We were also sobered by the tragic events in Ukraine and Israel. True is the principle that guided America’s founders: united we stand, divided we fall. As we experienced the grandeur of the West, our hearts went out to those millions in the world who suffer.

You Can’t Kill Arab Terrorists! That’s Our Job!

As long as someone’s doing it, I say:

About the crowds on Friday in Paris chanting “Palestine will overcome” and “Israel, assassin”: Where were they a few days earlier when news broke that over the previous weekend Syria’s civil war had produced 720 more dead, adding to the 150,000 others who have not had the honor of demonstrations in France?

Why did the protesters not pour into the streets when, a few days before that, the well-informed Syrian Network for Human Rights revealed that so far this year Damascus’s army, which was supposed to have destroyed its supply of chemical weapons, carried out at least 17 gas attacks around Kafrzyta, Talmanas, Atshan and elsewhere?

[I]f one were primarily concerned about the Palestinian children whose deaths are indeed an abomination—one would demand that Hamas operatives leave the hospital basements where they have buried their command centers, move the rocket launchers that they have installed in the doorways of United Nations schools, and stop threatening parents who wish to evacuate their homes when an Israeli leaflet informs them that a strike is imminent.

Moreover, if alarm about disproportion and asymmetry were the true wellspring of the protesters’ rage, would they not have had at least a passing thought for another disproportion that, not so far from Gaza, now afflicts the most wretched of the wretched, the most defenseless of all, the Christians of Mosul? Hamas’s “brothers” are offering these Iraqis the following ultimatum: Embrace Islam or die by the sword.

The truth:

The truth is that these protesters—most of them young members of the self-proclaimed “Gaza generation,” for whom the latest in chic is to sport a kaffiyeh made in Palestine—assume it is normal for Arabs to kill other Arabs.

They are also unperturbed upon learning, from the very mouth of the Hamas leadership (Journal of Palestine Studies, Vol. 41, No. 4), that in 2012 alone the construction of the infamous Gaza tunnels cost the lives of 160 Palestinian children who were turned into little slaves and buried in the rubble.

The oldest of these protesters also missed the chance to mobilize in favor of the 300,000 Darfurians massacred by Sudan; the 200,000 Chechens whom Putin, in his own elegant phrase, “kicked into the crapper” not so long ago; and the Bosnians who were besieged and bombarded to general indifference for three years. The truth is that for these selectively conscientious objectors, indignation arrives only when one has the opportunity to condemn a military consisting mostly of Jews.

The double standard is odious. And it has become increasingly evident across Europe in the past month. Bluntly anti-Semitic slogans have marred most European demonstrations “in support of the people of Gaza.” Residents of Frankfurt and Dortmund were horrified in mid-July to see neo-Nazi groups join hands with left-wing Islamists in a grim chant: “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas.” The center of London was blocked on July 19 by thousands who gathered in front of the Israeli embassy in Kensington to shout their hatred for Jews.

Not to mention Amsterdam, the city of Spinoza, Europe’s capital of tolerance, where in certain neighborhoods it has become practically impossible to wear a yarmulke in public without running the risk of being insulted or assaulted.

This much is fact. The author, Bernard Henri-Levi, makes the case persuasively. But there are so many other facts. The protesters were also absent as Hamass and Islamic Jihad (and suchlike jihadist gangs) shelled Israel daily, without reprisal. Contrary to what I heard on NPR this morning, Hamass is looking not merely to lift the blockade on Gaza (imposed as much by Egypt as by Israel), but to annihilate the Jewish state entirely. Their appeals for violence and genocide are ethnic and religious in nature, citing the inevitability of and necessity for Islam to triumph over “the Jews”, as willed by Allah.

And, of course, my favorite fact: there is no Palestine, and never has been. The idea of a Palestinian state came into being only when the Jews reclaimed their land and called it Israel.

One last fact. Israel will find no justice in this world, and surely not in Europe. A few righteous individuals aside, Israel must know that it can win few friends by placating the haters or trying to ingratiate itself to generations of antisemites. Europe is the past of civilization; Israel is likely to be its future.

Gosh, Darnit! A 3rd Rocket Stash Found At A UN School.

UN schools have more rocket stashes tucked away than I have extra pairs of reading glasses. They’re so easy to lose, right?

The United Nations Relief & Works Agency For Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) announced Tuesday that another rocket stockpile has been found at one of its schools in Gaza. This instance marks the third time since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge that a weapons arsenal has been found at an UNRWA school in Gaza.

UNRWA has yet to place blame on any individuals or organizations for placing the weapons stockpile within a children’s school. The UN body refused to do so on the past two previous occasions as well.
The UN body, after both previous findings, has handed the rockets it had found back into the possession of “the local police,” otherwise known as the terrorist group Hamas.

This week, UNRWA supplies and building materials had been found in Hamas’s tunnel infrastructure, which has been used to smuggle weapons and carry out attacks on the State of Israel.

The UN agency has a well-documented history of using their US taxpayer-funded facilities to promote anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda. It has in the past been accused of aiding and abetting radical Islamists in Gaza and elsewhere.

Imagine that! The UN paid for the tunnels (in part) along with you and me, the American taxpayer. And now Israel is destroying all that work and all that money. Shouldn’t we do something about Israel? Those are Peace Tunnels™, intended to show the loving side of the Peaceful Palestinians™. Mean old Israel has to stop!

Do you suppose that the UN will “lose” this weapons too? I’m taking the over on this one, BTL.

Ceasefire?

With these people?

Al-Aqsa TV, the Hamas TV channel, aired on Friday, July 25, 2014 a sermon from a Deir Al-Balah Mosque, in which an unnamed imam called for the extermination of the Jews.

“Our doctrine in fighting you (the Jews) is that we will totally exterminate you. We will not leave a single one of you alive, because you are alien usurpers of the land and eternal mercenaries. You are the mercenaries of all times. Research the history, my brothers. Wherever the Jews lived, they spread corruption. Oh Muslims, didn’t you notice that Allah said: ‘They spread in THE land…’ The definite article in ‘THE land’ means the entire land. ‘They spread in the land corruption, and Allah loves not the corrupters.’”

That was on Hamass TV, mind you.

Just some hothead blowing off steam? Then how about this guy?

Palestinian Media Watch reported on Thursday that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas had publicly declared the current conflict with Israel a religious “war for Allah.” On Friday, the independent Palestinian news service Ma’an printed an opinion piece that likewise interpreted the last lines of Abbas’ speech as a call to West Bank Palestinians to initiate violence:

“He gave the sign to let the [Palestinian] street in the West Bank loose. Isn’t the Quranic verse he quoted during his last speech, ‘Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory’ [Surah 22:39, trans. Sahih International] a clear sign to loosen the reins of the street?”
[Op-ed by Muhannad Ubeid, Ma'an (independent Palestinian news agency),
July 25, 2014]

Violence began immediately following Abbas’ speech and peaked on Saturday, as reported in the Jerusalem Post: “Nine Palestinians were killed during clashes with the IDF and Border Police over the weekend, in one of the deadliest days in the West Bank in the last 10 years.” [July 27, 2014]

So, the bad Arabs (“Palestinian” being a mythical beast) call for the complete extermination of the Jews, while the so-called good Arabs enflame passions by calling this a holy war for the Big A. And Israel is supposed to submit to the demands—of the bad Arabs.

And that’s American policy?

This is a joke, right? Where’s the hidden camera?

United States of Indebtedness

Just be glad you don’t live in Nevada:

Americans have a debt problem.

An estimated 1 in 3 adults with a credit history — or 77 million people — are so far behind on some of their debt payments that their account has been put “in collections.”

That’s a key finding from a new Urban Institute study.

It examined non-mortgage debt, including credit card bills, car loans, medical bills, child support payments and even parking tickets.

The debt in collections ranged from as little as $25 to a whopping $125,000. But the average amount owed was $5,200.

Geographically, no area of the country is untouched.

Among the states, Nevada had the highest percentage of residents with debt in collections — 47% – as well as the highest average amount owed – $7,198. That was helped in part by the Las Vegas metro area, where 49% of residents had debt in collections.

In any of those cases, however, the cost to the consumer is high and long-lasting.

“[It] can harm credit scores, which can tip employers’ hiring decisions, restrict access to mortgages, and even increase insurance costs,” said Caroline Ratcliffe, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute.

Of course, Aggie and I are the only ones in the nation who think this is a direct result of President Obama’s policies. This recovery-that-wasn’t, now five years old, has led to prosperity-that-isn’t and jobs-that-aren’t. You heard all about this in the Bush years, when (until 2008) there really were prosperity and jobs; nothing now.

Rather, if this story gets any traction (it won’t), you’ll see the regime’s puppets and jesters try to make the case that Obama needs more of his failed policies. The economy will never be fully healed, despite what the unemployment numbers say, until Obama leaves office. He’s that damaging.
