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
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.
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

PITY THE POOR BILLIONAIRES
The most interesting, likable, and authentic candidates in each party (Bernie and Trump) don't want your money … although Bernie will probably take a check for $27 bucks, his average contribution. The media is agog, especially at the Trump phenomenon. Their commentary is virtually useless … mostly because they are stuck in political correctness mode
If HILLARY CLINTON is going to be President, she needs the election moved up by six months. Her supporters aren't getting any younger. In Iowa, Bernie Sanders beat the bejesus out of her with people under 44 and in the under-30 segment, Sanders beat her by six to one. Seriously. The closer people got to
REPUBLICAN DEBATE: THINGS YOU'LL HEAR AND THINGS YOU WON'T HEAR
YOU WILL HEAR 1. After I take the oath of office, the first call I'll make will be to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. I'll put our good friend Sheldon Adelson on the phone, and we'll all have a good laugh about the future of the “peace process”. Hilarious. Also, we'll have to talk about
