RACHEL MADDOW: CONTRARY INDICATOR

Rachel Maddow, who was unwilling to mention the name of the late Sheldon Adelson during his lifetime, is excited about a non case involving a second echelon actor doing next to nothing with a slightly unimportant country that has oil, an airline and tee shirts. The guy is Tom Barrack. Nice guy, Christian, Lebanese descent,

RACHEL MADDOW SHOULD RESIGN

Rachel Maddow is a “Company Girl.” The “Company” is Comcast. Its controlling shareholder and CEO is Brian Roberts. Comcast owns MSNBC and decides who, and what goes on their television stations. Mr. Roberts is Jewish. He is a frequent traveler to Israel and friend of Benjamin Netanyahu. Mr. Roberts does not want to see or

THE ORIGINS OF OUR POLITICAL PREFERENCES: PART I

Like most people, my dislikes are bigger drivers of my political preferences than my likes. Hate is a stronger motivator than love. Its a fact. Hate energizes. Love pacifies. I like and admire Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. They are, and have been, strong figures on the national stage, who have stood the test of

ISRAEL: IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING

Remember the Saturday Night Live Character, Roseanne Roseannadanna? Her favorite response to any complication or complaint was to tell the source of the problem, “There’s always something. If it isn’t one thing it’s the other.” Which reminds me of our friends, the Israelis. It’s always something with them. They want money, so we give them

A WAR IF TRUMP WANTS ONE

Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson have a war all teed up for President Trump if he thinks he needs a war to win re-election. Timing is elegant. Iran is available. Use the Debate Sept 29 to take command of the stage. Remind us of your love for Israel. Commence hostilities first or second week of

GIVE HIM A POTEMKIN

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

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
