Trump deserves an award. Not a Nobel….please! But, a Potemkin, like in “gee Dad, its a Potemkin!” A Potemkin is an all purpose award that commemorates non events. Not to rush the story but a Potemkin in diplomacy is sort of like a Trump University Degree in Education. No one gets educated and no one
GIVE HIM A POTEMKIN
IMPEACH? SURE. REMOVE? LONGSHOT.
Let’s cut to the chase. First, The Trump-Ukraine Marx Brothers Upside/Down Heist-Bungle is an Impeachable Offense. Don’t even worry about it. It’s not even a close call. The House will vote to Impeach on that, at least, and there will be a trial in the Senate. Bet on it. Mitch McConnell has said as much.
JILL BIDEN COMES OUT FOR JOE
JOE BIDEN is not going to draw 100,000 in Waterbury, CT in the rain at 3AM as John Kennedy did two days before the 1960 Election but he’s a good guy and Jill Biden says he can win. The former Second Lady has credibility and unique standing amongst Democrats. Her intervention was timely and effective.
IRAN: PLAYING A SHORT STACK
There’s a poker analogy hidden in the confrontation between Israel, the USA, and Iran. It’s like two players with lots of cash, Israel and the USA, decide they want to break a third player, Iran, who is low on cash but who’s been around a long time, 4000 years and counting, and can still play.
ITS GETTING WEIRD OUT THERE
Twenty Democrats debate four hours and nobody blurts out “I love Israel more than life itself.” Love Ya, Dems! FOX TV Host, Tucker Carlson, calls National Security Advisor John Bolton a “bureaucratic tapeworm.” Love Ya, Tucker! FOX TV Host, Tucker Carlson, saves Western Civilization by telling Donald Trump that a war with Iran is “not
OBSERVATIONS NO. 3
TRUMP WANTS TALKS WITH IRAN. Israel Cheerleader and MSNBC host, Chuck Todd, looked like there had been a death in the family. How could an American President want to talk about peace with Iran without Israel’s permission? Who does Trump think he is? Obama? “The Saudis will go Bonkers!” Like Chuck Todd gives a rat’s
TALLEST MAN IN THE ROOM AND OTHER STUFF
Five foot six inch Sheldon Adelson, the self described “tallest person in the room when I sit on my wallet”, hasn’t forgotten he paid for a war with Iran…not a wall with Mexico. Sheldon, who has increased his net worth a little over a billion dollars per year every year for the last thirty years,
TRUMP: DUMB LIKE A FOX
Just when you think the best you can expect from our President is that he get through the day without mistaking the Queen of England for the Dalai Lama, Trump hits a policy bullseye. Specifically, on December 19, 2018, out of the blue, Trump announces the transfer of 2,000 American troops out of Syria. I
WEARING HIS FATHER’S SHOES
In 1988, fifty-five year old, recently divorced, Sheldon Adelson took his first trip to Israel. He was wearing the shoes of his deceased Lithuanian–born Jewish father. By 1988 Sheldon had come a long way from Dorchester, MA. He was the creator and owner of COMDEX, a successful computer trade show business in Las Vegas and
NANCY PELOSI GETS A LIFE
In 1987, the Congresswoman in the Northern California District where Nancy Pelosi lived, Rep. Sala Burton, died of cancer. Before she died, Sala asked Nancy to consider running for her congressional seat when it became vacant. At the time, the youngest of Nancy’s five children was a senior in high school. Nancy decided she had
