Steve Bannon has a problem. He’s in a tribal fight against the toughest, most effective political tribe in the country, the American Jewish Community, and Bannon’s tribe, Irish Catholics, disbanded 40 years ago. They don’t wear their brass knuckles anymore and they only meet on St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not cohesive and we don’t support
NOT READY TO HATE TRUMP
I can't quite get to that “I hate Trump” spot where all sane folks are supposed to be. After all, I'm an Obama guy and have been from day one, so hating Trump should be a piece of cake, right? It isn't, trust me. Especially if hating Trump means I have to like Hillary, and,
REPUBLICAN DEBATE: THINGS YOU'LL HEAR AND THINGS YOU WON'T HEAR
YOU WILL HEAR 1. After I take the oath of office, the first call I'll make will be to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. I'll put our good friend Sheldon Adelson on the phone, and we'll all have a good laugh about the future of the “peace process”. Hilarious. Also, we'll have to talk about
RUPERT MURDOCH IS JEWISH AND TOM CALLAGHAN IS CATHOLIC
Screw Political Correctness. It's boring and, like Jeb Bush, low-energy. Trump proves that every day. He doesn't give a rat's ass about political correctness, and people love him “for telling it like it is”. Right On, Donald. Rupert Murdoch, through his hacks at FOX, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Post stomps all
DEBATE PREP: DOES DONALD TRUMP BELIEVE HIS OWN BS?
In the investment business, they say stockbrokers never get rich, because they don't believe their own BS. Trump is rich, having fun, and leading in the polls. So maybe he does believe his own BS. In any event, he has become, in the words of Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post, “A farce to be
IRAN DEAL OPPONENTS – UNGRATEFUL AND HYSTERICAL
Let's get to the point on the Iran Deal. If Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, withdrew his opposition to the Iran Deal, the following would happen: 1. Rupert Murdoch would call up his hacks at FOX, the New York Post, and the Wall Street Journal and tell them to shut up about Iran
DEALING WITH IRAN: NOT A WALK IN THE PARK
If you can imagine trying to do two complicated math problems simultaneously while a rabid dog gnaws on one ankle and a furry animal pees on the other, you've got a good idea of the task before Secretary of State John Kerry and his team, working with five other countries to get a framework agreement
NETANYAHU: AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
Each time it’s pretty much the same. We’re an ancient people; we’re always threatened; Iran is bad; the US should attack them; never again. Is the Prime Minister totally unaware of the universal truism: familiarity breeds contempt? Sometimes a new wrinkle finds its way into a Netanyahu speech. At his first address to a Joint
A TRUTHFUL NETANYAHU WOULD RIP CONGRESS. LIKE THIS.
Members of the Congress, honored guests, ladies and gentlemen: It’s good to be with you for this my third address to a Joint Meeting of Congress. I’m well aware that it is a distinct honor and a rare privilege to address the two houses of Congress in Joint Meeting. HISTORY OF JOINT MEETINGS On the
NETANYAHU AND BOEHNER: THE UNCTUOUS MANIPULATOR AND THE USEFUL IDIOT
These two were made for each other. Yiddish describes them best. Netanyahu is a schnorrer, the perpetually uninvited guest that always wants more. Boehner is a schnook, the not-so-bright dupe. Skulking around in the shadows for six weeks, Boehner and Netanyahu hit upon a scheme to benefit each other individually and undermine American foreign policy.
