Skip to comments.(Valerie) Plame has joined Jewish temple (Also NM-3 Dem Candidate)
Posted on 01/05/2020 4:38:01 PM PST by CedarDave
Former CIA operative and New Mexico congressional candidate Valerie Plame, who continues to draw criticism for retweeting an anti-Semitic article in 2017, says she has joined a Jewish congregation.
Plame, in a recent interview with an Israeli journalist, said she is a member of Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Fe, where she has lived for several years.
In videotaped portions of the interview now posted online, Plame said she became interested in her family history after having her twin boys in 2000 and discovered that her great-grandfather was a rabbi in Ukraine.
Ive always been drawn to that aspect of my Jewish heritage, she said. That led her to Temple Beth Shalom, Plame added.
Plames infamous tweet from 2017 was of an article entitled Americas Jews are Driving Americas Wars that came from a controversial website.
After briefly defending the tweet online, Plame apologized, saying she had merely skimmed the article, which said Jews should be labeled as such when serving as commentators on television news shows. She told Twitter followers, Im not perfect and make mistakes. This was a doozy. All I can do is admit them, try to be better, and read more thoroughly next time. Ugh.
Last year, Plame joined a crowded Democratic field running for the U.S. House in northern New Mexicos 3rd Congressional District. Incumbent Rep Ben Ray Luján is running for U.S. Senate this year.

The classic “I just found out about my jewish roots” canard.
“”””””Former CIA operative and New Mexico congressional candidate Valerie Plame”””””””””
Te story starts with a lie. Se was not some double naught spy, she worked at a desk. No law prevented her name from being revealed.
Democrats will do ANTHING to win....ANYTHING!! Jewish, my ass.
Scooter Libby got a BOOM out of this, and she was not under cover and the prosecutor knew he wasnt even involved.
CIA operative. My ‘MOS’ was Pavements Maintenance SPECIALIST. The key word is specialist. As for the pavements part they gave me a shovel.
She was a paper pusher at the CIA, licensed to carry a pencil
I talked to a guy at the hospital last summer who mowed the lawn. His name tag indicated he was a LANDSCAPE TECHNICIAN.
She was the subject of a classic hit on the Bush administration and to this day, it's never been verified that she was once a covert CIA agent. That was her claim only...........
That bullshit investigation laid the groundwork to what has been happening to Trump.........
Talk about cynical and politically expedient.

They expected President Trump to roll over like the wuss W did.
Her god has horns.
Could it be all the Yellow-Cake treatments?
Like the pandering politician who suddenly loves corn in Iowa.
Or wears an auto worker cap in Michigan.
Or when the Dem House Speaker Tom Foley , under opposition in 1994, wore his hunting clothes including a red plaid jacket and carried a hunting rifle to show he was a good old normal guy who loved guns. He lost anyway.
Problem: Most Reform Jews are Dems (Orthodox are mostly pro-Trump). So they’ll invite her to their party for a Welcome Immigrants —One Human Family banner hanging ceremony at the Temple.
I'll put that in my toolbag of PC nonsense terms.
We shouldn’t be talking about what she does or where she is this could get people killed, you know.
Im not perfect and make mistakes. This was a doozy. All I can do is admit them, try to be better, and read more thoroughly next time. Ugh.
I ask you... does that quote ‘read’ like a serious senior-level CIA official? Sounds more like an unserious teenager.
