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
ISRAEL: IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING
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
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
