Israel already views Judaism as a nationality and Jewish identity is based on ancestry. Saying it's just a religion is dumb.

Well, yes, for conservatives it's an indisputable fact that all Jews are loyal to Israel above all else, and that they live here for the sole purpose of manipulating things to the benefit of Israel. However, fortunately for the Jews conservatives aren't actually concerned about anything but their own power, so they don't see that as a problem so much as what should be an 'easy' way to get votes by pandering to Israel.

Of course, they perpetually end up being disappointed when Jewish Americans overwhelmingly vote Democrat, which is why in any discussion about Jewish votes the inevitable and repeated Republican complaint is "I don't understand how they can keep voting Democrat when we do so much more for Israel!"

Yeah..no. What Israel thinks shouldn't be at all relevant to US law, especially in terms of declaring that Jewish Americans are actually inherently considered to be Israelis first and foremost.

Seema Verma who, as a senior figure in the Trump administration, has made it more difficult for poor Americans to access health coverage, has filed a claim of $47,000 for the loss of her luggage while on a three-day work trip.

According to Politico, Verma filed the claim on 28 August 2018 after having her luggage stolen while giving a speech in San Francisco. Her expenses included 20 pieces of jewellery, which sounds reasonable for a three day-work trip – if you are Snoop Dogg.

She had originally estimated the cost of those pieces at $20,000, but came back with the higher $43,065 price tag after visiting a jeweler three weeks after the theft. Because sometimes you’re just that rich that you forget about that extra 20 grand you dropped at the jewelers.

Everyone should have to buy health insurance but the idea of travel insurance is beyond Trump officials and the government should cover them. Bunch of cunts.

Because as the article notes, there are specific protections in the Civil Rights Act for discrimination based on race or nationality.

This will essentially allow them to declare that criticism of Israel violates the civil rights of all Jews...regardless of whether they're actually Israeli or not.

As I said, it would bring up some interesting conflicts of interest as Ivanka and Jared would effectively be foreign nationals holding high positions in the U.S. government.

Not necessarily: Not if Jews are defined as their own ethno-religious group. That doesnt equals with them being Israeli. Being Israeli doesnt necessarily requires one to be jewish however. (Druzes for example, who also serve in the IDF)

To support this claim, God stated both Jews and Gentiles can be faithful, thus being Christians.

Yes, we should do this. Infact, we should expand this for all branches too :^)

I wonder how many leadership positions and senior staff might open up :^))))

Good point. I was just memeing about certain lobbyists. That would be quite a bit more controversial.
