Trump's prints all over French election


To the editor:

The news of Marine LePen’s second place finish in the first round is disturbing, but not shattering. 

What is more likely to be remembered in the 2018 U.S. midterms is that Trump and his ally Putin supported her, and that she ran as a thinly disguised, quasi-neo-Nazi makeover.

Even with their politicking and Putin’s monetary support and cyber-intervention by his trolls, LePen did only marginally better than her father, Jean-Marie LePen. Her father was more overtly neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic, and he gained almost 17 percent, finishing second to the notoriously corrupt Jacques Chirac by about three percentage points.

That’s almost the same as his daughter’s gap behind first place candidate Emmanuel Macron. 

Marie’s run will likely be only an historical footnote, but Trump’s support of her will still resonate.

Lets not forget that Mrs Clitnon said the following G-D Bless her


"Former First Lady and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton categorically denied being a member of the Chosen People of God over the weekend, saying, “I know I have the nose for it, and perhaps even the temperament, but I am in no way connected to those Jews.”

Speaking at a ‘Friends of Saudi Arabia’ fundraiser, the former Secretary of State cited example after example of her personal ill-will toward the descendants of Abraham and Sarah. “Truth be told, I’ve always been more of an Ishmael girl myself.”


In New York, where one of every eight voters is Jewish, it certainly won't hurt that First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton can note the Jewish branch on her family tree.

Mrs. Clinton, who is Methodist, "has very fond childhood memories" of the second husband of her grandmother, Max Rosenberg, a Russian-born Jew, said Howard Wolfson, a spokesman for the first lady's Senate exploratory committee.

This is why as a self loating Jew I love Mrs Clinton she is 100% correct


Lets make sure she is elected with the Jewish vote
