BACK TO BASICS

When things get crazy slow everything down and go back to basics. The great truths have not been repealed….ignored, yes…but not repealed. Consider: NATURE (AND POLITICS) ABHORS A VACUUM (PARMENDIES, PHILOSPHER, GREECE, 485 BC) The Office of President of the United States is essentially vacant. The occupant is happy to spend his days at parades

IT’S SHELDON ADELSON’S DREAM AND WE’RE LIVING IN IT

Billionaire Casino owner Sheldon Adelson is not wracked by doubt. In Sheldon’s world there is no such thing as the Palestinian People, there was never anything to negotiate with Iran, and Israel’s Capitol is Jerusalem.

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
