My father’s line are Vikings.
Came through France, to the Isles, then to America.
Maternal grandmother was of a French line which escaped the mass murder by the Church of Rome of Protestant Christians in the 17th Century.
So I seem to have a fondness of the French/Norman DNA for the implement known as the Guillotine.
That and Common Law, (God’s/Nature’s Law) Courts.
The Ole Dog!
Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi, & the Congressional Black Caucas (also in the Israel lobby’s pocket) had endorsed Engel, but Jamaal Bowman won… as did Ocasio-Cortez…
It is early days to be hopeful, but the New York primary election results, coming as they do from a state where Jewish groups wield enormous power, just might be an indication that some things are about to change…

Sometimes listening to the morning news on television is a bit like entering into an alternate universe. Last Wednesday, the day after primary elections in New York State, CBS News reported that New York Congressman Eliot Engel was “facing a challenge” from Democratic Party challenger Jamaal Bowman. NBC News reported that Engel was “trailing.”
The reality, according to the New York Times tally of the results that morning was that Bowman had beaten Engel by a margin to 60.9% versus 35.6% with more than 82% of votes counted. Even though it posted the numbers, the Times felt compelled to describe the apparently impending lopsided loss as if it were something less than that, as a “stiff challenge” for Engel.
The media deference to Engel derives from the fact that he is a protected species, possibly the leading Israel-firster in Congress.
