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

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

OBSERVATIONS. NO. 1

  HAS TRUMP HACKED THE POLLS? How hard would it be to hack the polls? Not very hard at all. Why would anyone want to? Think about where we are now. The Conventional Wisdom holds that Trump can’t be removed from office because his base is still with him. We “know” his base is still

REP ILHAN OMAR AND IMMANUEL KANT…PLUS TROPES AND DOPES

I’m for Ilhan Omar. She’s got guts. And, to put it more elegantly, she has the right to call herself a Kantian. She’s earned that right. Tell me more, you say. Immanuel Kant, German Philosopher ( 1724-1804 ) defined an “enlightened person” as someone who has the “courage to use their own understanding without the

IlHAN OMAR IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT

Of all the possible people in the world there are to worry about, you can take Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) off your list for now. She’s going to be OK. The little lady went through a rough patch but came out just fine. After escaping war-torn Somalia and living in a refugee camp four years

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,

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

TRUMP. ADELSON. PELOSI.

Donald Trump loves the image of himself sauntering across the stage showing a clenched fist or better yet…two clinched fists. Like he is actually in charge of something. Or, maybe a former war hero basking in well earned adulation. Hardly, on both counts. Trump is a fraud. He is a kept man. He does what
