In meeting with Orthodox, Trump reveals Israel advisers: His Jewish lawyers

NEW YORK (JTA) – There were a few things Donald Trump made clear when he met Thursday with a select group of Jewish reporters, almost all of them Orthodox, at his corporate offices in Manhattan.

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly was the one who initiated Wednesday’s one-on-one powwow with Trump to mend fences, not him. He’s a great friend of Israel. He has many Orthodox Jewish friends, including his chief lawyer, Jason D. Greenblatt. And he considers himself a very loyal boss.

But in a 20-minute question-and-answer session that touched on religious liberty in the workplace, U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and federal education tax credits, Trump offered scant details.

On some substantive policy questions, the Republican front-runner for president didn’t answer at all, instead delegating the question to Greenblatt, a real estate attorney from Teaneck, New Jersey — one of two people he said he’d appoint as his White House Israel policy advisers.

Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems

In The Road to Serfdom, published in 1944, Hayek argued that government planning, by crushing individualism, would lead inexorably to totalitarian control. Like Mises’s book Bureaucracy, The Road to Serfdom was widely read. It came to the attention of some very wealthy people, who saw in the philosophy an opportunity to free themselves from regulation and tax. When, in 1947, Hayek founded the first organisation that would spread the doctrine of neoliberalism – the Mont Pelerin Society – it was supported financially by millionaires and their foundations.

With their help, he began to create what Daniel Stedman Jones describes in Masters of the Universe as “a kind of neoliberal international”: a transatlantic network of academics, businessmen, journalists and activists. The movement’s rich backers funded a series of thinktanks which would refine and promote the ideology. Among them were the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Institute of Economic Affairs, the Centre for Policy Studies and the Adam Smith Institute. They also financed academic positions and departments, particularly at the universities of Chicago and Virginia.

As it evolved, neoliberalism became more strident. Hayek’s view that governments should regulate competition to prevent monopolies from forming gave way – among American apostles such as Milton Friedman – to the belief that monopoly power could be seen as a reward for efficiency.

Eyewitness: How VA hospitals speed up veteran's demise.

Not sure how to post this and where, it is hoped that somebody will read it and do something with it:

Mike,you and others, yesterday, posted articles about the Veterans Administration hastening veteran's demise. They have done it for a long time.

Here is my husband's story which shows how it is being done - oh so 'lovingly.:

My husband, a Korean war (excuse me I meant 'Conflict') veteran entitled to VA services due to being injured while posted there in 1952) While he did not take advantage of those services until about 2000 when the first signs of Alzheimers or Dementia showed. Originally we went to the Fresno, CA VA hospital for a first diagnosis.
After moving to Arizona in 2001, I decided to take him to the local VA for regular check-ups, primarily so nobody could accuse the family for neglect, as we had been advised that not having such check-ups could result in possible criminal actions to be filed against us.
