Each did not know what the principal was doing to her.
Much less that the same thing was happening to her sisters.
Some reasoning, that there are so many abusers you can't cover their bill. agudah.org/statement-of-a…
The simplest explanation makes the most sense: They are on your team.

Back from the North - a tour near Haifa. If you want to understand Israel, see it firsthand. The reality on the ground doesn't even remotely resemble the headlines. Radical leftist propagandists have manufactured a narrative that literally does not exist.
I have a little time now (HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY BY THE WAY) so let's do today's diary.
Today is the 17th.
Took a train today that left on the 17th after the hour.
Not for these reasons alone, I feel that something is about to happen.
I am seeing the number 613 or 316 all over the place again. This happened to me in 2014-2015, fluctuated and now it's happening again. The number is a warning.
I saw it just before the Pulse nightclub shooting (the next day was 6/13).
I saw it a lot in Santa Fe before I was almost run over by a motorcycle.
I saw it again by the Knesset and when I turned to look, another motorbike almost hit me.
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with the President and his family, and the Patriots who fight daily to save us from the cabal. And they ARE a cabal.
I know they are planning something because when they do, I start getting throat spasms.
Two cabs today. First one was Jewish and talked to us. Second one was Arab and didn't. Speech itself communicates - you don't talk to people you consider outside your social circle or realm.
Part of our collective brainwashing is that mind manipulation messages are transmitted and concealed at the same time. "Barr must resign" is not an opinion, it is a threat.
Nothing is as simple as it seems. In the Middle East, you get that. Handshakes and optics are stalling: There is no such thing as a peace plan involving "two states." There is the Jewish national homeland, period. Everything else is stalling.
The problem Arabs have with the Jewish state is the principle of it. They will never agree to let go.
Symbols do indeed rule the world. I got an ice cream before the tour because it came from an ice cream truck with American brands.
I paid for it with shekels. The driver wouldn't take Amex. How much? Exactly the total amount I had left - 26. That I took as a sign from God.
The soldiers here ride the train with guns. They never let go of the gun. This is a message and a warning.
Normal Israelis are ordinary but I do see the cabal symbols in advertising, most notably the one eye thing.
They are 100 percent not aware of it.
My husband and I are trying to take a selfie and it's coming out bad.
Lady offers to help. I am immediately suspicious and have my eye on her holding the phone. I think she might be a spy.
She takes the photo and we graciously reciprocate. I do not take my eyes off her hands.
The moment ends and as we walk away my husband and I separate briefly walking down the steps.
She comes up to me.
"Where are you from?" she asks.
A-HA! I think.
"Washington, DC" (probably not the smartest thing to tell a potential spy)
She blinks like she doesn't understand
"You?" I ask.
"Ukraine," she says.
Actually it was nothing.
But I had to ask: "What do you think of President Trump?"
"How about you?" she said.
"I think he's fantastic!" says I.
I tell all this to my husband.
He is not surprised that a Ukranian would be less than enamored. The aid, Crimea, etc.
I thought the whole thing was very strange.
What a topsy-turvy world we live in.
Who was she?
What did she want?
Was I overthinking it?
Am I misunderstanding everything?
Here is another view of Tel Aviv.
It could be the middle of New York City.

The President obviously has his own inner circle and strategy and none of this relates to such matters.
In my opinion the President's communication strategy has grown a bit stale. He needs to pivot.
Why is strategy stale?
- People don't understand what he is doing, nor do they study it.
- He trashes fake news, but there's no unbiased news.
- Social media censorship is heavy.
- He lacks high-credibility spokespeople.
- Those who like him, like him and those who don't, dont.
Why is strategy stale?
Because Q told us what we're going to know. We have heard that most will stay secret.
Why is strategy stale?
Because watching lawyers fight for a conviction is like watching paint dry.
So this is the pivot. This is the best advice I can give.
From the inception of the Trump campaign until now, the President has been his own primary spokesperson. That needs to change.
From what I can tell, the President's message has been absorbed by his followers (including myself) to such an extent that the most convinced among us are able to reach out to others at the grassroots level.
I think as a campaign matter, the President should delegate most messaging to his most ardent followers, and step back.
(Hang on - have to take a quick break.)
The second issue has to do with process.
The President's fighting style is characterized by unpredictability.
As a military matter (campaigns are essentially mini-wars) this is good.
As a management-of-the-country matter, this is bad.
President Trump, right now, has the power to stabilize the management of the country through the civil service and citizen volunteer corps, in addition to the military.
The civil service is a kind of mini-army. The President can and should focus on rebuilding the civil service, not hollowing it out. This means vastly reducing dependence on contractors and increasing permanent hires.
Within the context of those permanent hires — many of whom, in my view, should be Veterans — there can be a vision of a more nimble and cross-functional service with rotations into different agencies and cross-training programs.
There is nothing wrong with learning from the past, and Al Gore's National Partnership for Reinventing Government is the model to follow.
There is also nothing wrong with leveraging the many academic and public policy think-tanks in Washington as this is done. The Partnership for Public Service, the Harvard-Kennedy School, etc.
The pivot here, again, is away from the President's mercurial style and toward an approach that is grounded in public policy best practices. Not just data-driven management. True Federal leadership.
This leads us directly into the notion of a volunteer program. With all the resources at the President's disposal, citizen volunteers can be engaged in real, practical community efforts.
Here are some examples of volunteering.
—Cleaning the community
—Cooking meals in the public schools
—Tutoring, including literacy tutoring and technology tutoring
—Financial management support groups
Here are some examples of rewards for volunteering.
—Volunteer and get out of the last period of school
The same energy that goes into a rally for the President needs to go into everyday life.
Moving on to credible spokespeople. Let's divide this into two parts.
The intellectual fuel for the "Trump is bad" narrative you see on TV comes from commentators of varied backgrounds.
The President needs to compete with these gasbags.
The way you do this is not to oppose them, but to *coopt* them.
In other words, create public speaking opportunities where pro- and anti-Trump influencers have a dialogue. (You know: debating!)
Ironically, to reinvigorate his communication machine, the President must invite people into the tent who may actually prove him wrong about a thing. (Think of this like Roman gladiator battles, except with words.)
The ratings on left wing news shows are bad because they rely on censorship.
So model freedom of speech!
The people will gravitate to the President not because his ideas are all superior, but because they know he will create an environment free of the thought Gestapo.
The second part of this is to create an alternative entertainment machine.
For example, I like religious movies and music because they uplift me.
I have mixed feelings about movies and music that appeal to the nastiest side of me.
The President can most certainly think in creative ways so that we enjoy a wider range of entertainment options —which include talk shows, movies and TV that educate us about reality. Not left wing TDS fantasies and scripts.
—Step back and be a figurehead - let the people take over
— Rebuild the human infrastructure associated with civic life
— Model free speech and open dialogue
— Support a wider range of entertainment options which incorporate accurate messages about America.
