Some guy Joe

A little background on Joe:

Joe served as Secretary of State. He previously served as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Prior to that, Joe served as congressman from Kansas’ 4th District. He served on the House Intelligence Committee, as well as the Energy and Commerce Committee and House Select Benghazi Committee. Prior to his service in Congress, Joe founded Thayer Aerospace, where he served as CEO for more than a decade. He later became President of Sentry International, an oilfield equipment company.

Joe graduated first in his class at the United States Military Academy at West Point and served as a cavalry officer patrolling the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall. He also served with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the US Army’s Fourth Infantry Division. After leaving active duty, Joe graduated from Harvard Law School, having been an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

And what has Joe done:

Joe participates in an administration that has the best record in freeing American hostages. In just over two years, we have secured the release of 20 people, including at least 17 Americans, from foreign captivity. The most recent was in February, when Danny Burch, an American engineer at a Yemeni oil company, was freed after being held by unidentified captors since September 2017. Others liberated from captivity include Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was released by Turkey; Otto Warmbier, Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang-duk, released by North Korea; American aid worker Aya Hijazi and her husband, previously held by Egypt; UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, and Texas business executive Sandy Phan-Gillis, released by China; Caitlan Coleman, her husband and their three children, released by the Taliban; Sabrina de Sousa, a former CIA officer, released by Portugal; and Mormon missionaries Joshua and Thamy Holt, released by Venezuela.

Grand prize to Joe (oops, his name is Mike): get disinvited from dinner. What a great country. Hey, give an award to AOC or Bozo, since he’s really clued in – sieg heil and all that.

    I can’t say I am surprised. Oviously, only the people with the correct beliefs should be eligible for awards.

    Off topic. this is an intriguing idea, though nothing will come of it.

    From the article:

    An amicable divorce would split New York state into three independent districts, each with its own governor and legislature — but would keep it one state for the federal government’s purposes — under a bill introduced by a Buffalo-area lawmaker.

    The plan would leave intact New York City’s five boroughs, with their 8.6 million residents, and even keep the name New York.

    The city’s immediate suburbs — Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and Rockland counties would be called “Montauk,” although their 4.2 million citizens would be free to vote for a different name.

    And the rest of the Empire State, all 53 upstate counties and their 7.1 million people, would go back to historical basics and become New Amsterdam.

    “Rule from Albany does not work in rural America,” Assemblyman David DiPietro (R-East Aurora), the sponsor, told The Post. “One size does not fit all in this state. We’re tired of being second-class citizens.”

    The new rules would let each region run its own schools and set its own taxes – and would leave Gov. Cuomo with “about as much power as the queen of England,” said John Bergener Jr. of the Divide NYS Caucus, who helped devise the plan.
