TRUMP: TALKING TO HIMSELF

Kennedy drew 60,000 at 3AM in Waterbury; Obama, 150,00 in Denver; Trump 6,200 in Tulsa, including staff, secret service, assorted flunkies, wannabees, and, supernumeraries. That’s about right. The universe is starting to make sense. The Trump Act is getting stale and tired. The “cover story” of shaking things up does’t wash. Deep state, Antifa (anyone

SLEEPY JOE VERSUS CAPTAIN CHAOS

If you’re for Joe, how can you feel optimistic? What has he done that makes you want to say “he’s got this, he’s on top of his game.” Does he speak with passion and conviction that makes you want to send him a check. Has he ever given a speech that brought you to your

THE SAUDI REFINERY HIT: A SLICK PIECE OF WORK

Talk about timing… ten days before the opening of the UN General Assembly. Talk about execution… fifty percent of the Saudi Oil Production gonesville with no dead bodies.

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.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY DRAFT TICKET: PELOSI-MUELLER

Our Country needs an Intervention. We need the best we’ve got. Nancy Pelosi and Bob Mueller are the best we’ve got. Donald Trump and Sarah Sanders and Stephen Miller and Jared Kushner and Robert Barr are not the best we have. They’ve shown themselves to be a second string collection of liars and opportunists who

HIT HIM IN THE BASE

You want to beat Trump? Hit him in the base. But in a nice way. Sort of like how Reagan beat Carter and Kennedy beat Nixon and Obama beat Romney. Cheerful, with a bit of self deprecating humor, not angry. More mensch not momzer. (Harry Truman was a mensch, Rick Santorum a momzer). What we

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 The great truths have not been repealed….ignored, yes…but not repealed.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
