Putin DID Make An Offer

There is no question that Vladimir Putin is a bully, a tyrant, a man who hates those daring to question his authority about anything. But,every once and a while the Russian Donald Trump does make some sense. Finnish leader Martin Ahisaan told reporters that in 2012 while working with a team of diplomats seeking to resolve the Syrian problem he was approached by Russian diplomat Vitaly Churkin with the following proposal from the Russian government:

1. The West should not give arms to opponents of the Assad government.

2. We should organize a dialogue among all opponents of the Assad government.

3. We should find an elegant way for Assad to step aside.

There was no response from either the US,France or England.

And, thus a chance for peace was not pursued.

A Bush Fairy Tale

I have now heard Jeb Bush recount the true story about what happened in the Iraq war on two separate occasions. So, let me recite the story which has now emerged as the Republican narrative for the coming election.

Once upon a time there was a land across the sea ruled by a terrible man.The people hated him and so longed for a savior. Georgie Bush and his fellow inhabitants of the sand box heard the pleas of these poor persecuted people, and then led a gallant troop of men into battle with Georgie at the head encouraging the troops to go faster and faster. Finally, they vanquished the evil giant, and then sent him off to that place in the sky where all bad people go. Or, perhaps, they sent them down into a deep,deep hole where fire burned twenty-four hours a day.

The people were filled with joy and happiness and so welcomed the soldiers who were led by the gallant Georgie Bush. But, alas, Georgie had to return to his kingdom. Unfortunately, there was a bad, bad black man who secretly poisoned the minds of the peasants and he became the king. The bad black man hated the people who dwelled in the land across the sea. He gave weapons to an evil group led by Osama bin Laden, and they created chaos and disaster in the land which had just become peaceful.

So, now the people who dwell across the sea are unhappy because the bad black man and his evil, evil, lying girl friend transformed a land that did not have any bad people into one in which the evil ones created a terrible mess.

Who knows, perhaps, Ted Le Cruz will arrive with sword in hand and restore peace and prosperity?

The Bad Deal??

Voices of doom insist the agreement with Iran is the first step toward destruction and chaos in the Middle East. Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who gave over $150,000,000 to Republicans in 2012 has now become the center of wisdom for Republicans who dislike the agreement. Of course, if Sheldon said he was for the deal, then every Republican candidate would be shouting their support. Sheldon did offer an alternative to the current agreement. He suggests dropping an atomic bomb in a desert region of Iran to show we mean BUSINESS!

Despite all the shouts and anger about negotiations with Iran the opposition has yet to offer an alternative. Mort Klein of the Zionist Organization of America is for Ted Cruz: “a man who tells the truth.” Where have American Jews wound up? Defending a man who is against working people, against women rights, against health care, and so on and so on. Yes, he is a man who tells the truth–at least the truth as to what he believes in.

Dick Cheney Speaks–Again

The years roll by and Dick Cheney is still with us. During the 1980s while working for Ronald Reagan, Dick was sent to Iraq in order to send greetings to Saddam Hussein for his war against Iran. Dick was able to give Saddam a nice hug and urge the friend of America to continue his battle against evil Iran. There is no need to review the work of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld who took out the evil doer, Saddam Hussein. Dick was on Fox News yesterday explain how Iran had been thwarted in its nuclear program while the Bush man was in power. He insisted to Chris Wallace that Iran’s nuclear program was halted because “they were afraid what we did to Saddam we were going to do to them.”

Wallace noted that Iran has NO centrifuges when the Bush team came to power but had 5,000 when they departed from power. Cheney response: “I think we had to deal with the arms arms control problem in the Middle East.” HUH? I have absolutely no idea what that means.

Transforming Christians Into Saviors

Once upon a time those in Congress actually read the US Constitution. They understood the First Amendment was written to allow each American the right to practice religion of their choice. It also made clear the government of the United States could not favor one religion, but had to meet its responsibility to prevent any one religion from imposing its views upon the American people. Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis insists that her religion prevents her from carrying out the laws of America. In other words, she wants to impose her view as to what is the law based on her personal conversations with God.

According to Mike Huckabee, “having Kim Davis in Federal custody removes all doubt of the criminalization of Christianity.” He went on to add, “What a word where Hillary Clinton is not in jail but Kim Davis is.” Heck, even the Donald Man understands, ” we’re a nation of laws.” NO person can impose her views as to what law is, only the legislature and courts can make that decision.

Perhaps, Mike, you might also read the Constitution as well as the Bible.

Female Trump Speaks

On occasion I become somewhat confused when Republican discuss issues of world importance. Sarah Palin ran on the ticket with John McCain for the presidency in 2008. As I recall, she embraced McCain as a great man and a born leader. Donald Trump insulted a war hero whose name is John McCain and the woman who ran with McCain now raves about the wonderful Trump man! “Voters crave the anti-status politician. They want results. They need someone who will fire all the politically correct police. Everything about Donald Trump is avant garde.

These comments are so incredibly insensitive toward a man who lifted Palin from being an unknown governor into a major political figure. How low can this woman sink?

A Man Died In Prison

His name was Jamycheal Mitchell and he was 24 years old. I am surprised that you never heard about his infamous crimes.No,he did not blow himself up and lead to the death of dozens. No, he did not spout terrorist talk on social media. No, he did not beat up old people. This man was charged with the heinous crime of: stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers candy bar, and a cup cake. This haul must have cost the grocery store owner at least $5 of his hard earned money.

Anyway, the cops came, grabbed the notorious cup cake robber and took him off to jail. He was there for FOUR MONTHS before dying in his cell yesterday. What the hell has happened to this nation?? Americans just lost ONE TRILLION DOLLARS due to the stock market collapse. Not a single person responsible for that crime will see one minute of jail time.

Just A Guy Named Joe

For many years when referring to the average American it is quite common to refer to this unknown person by calling him–Joe. Well, the guy named Joe is going to announce that he will run for president. Joe Biden is throwing his hat or name or whatever into the ring of combat. As of yet,I am not clear whether he seeks the Republican or the Democratic nomination.Wouldn’t you just enjoy a parade on stage of people seeking the Republican nomination and one is named–Joe? So,what does Joe Biden have to offer?

1.His name is Joe.

2.His name is not Hillary.

3.He was never married to a guy named,Bill.

5. On the other hand wouldn’t it be fun to have a ticket headed by Joe and Bill?

6. Joe Biden is a decent man. He is an intelligent man.

7. Donald and Joe on the stage would be a fascinating incident. Donald never ceasing to talk and Joe just listening and shaking his head.

8. How come we never have a guy named, Moishe?

P.S.Anyone for a George?

Dark Days Ahead For Bibi

Recent reports from top Israel officials indicate that back in 2010, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ready to launch air attacks on Iran, but was held back by top Israel generals. Goes to show there are Israelis who think like the black dude from Africa. Imagine seeking to resolve issues via diplomacy rather than through bombs! Senator Harry Reid just joined those supporting President Obama and his quest for peace.

Ironically, President Hassan Rouhani in Iran has problems with war hawks, ready to match Bibi bomb to bomb. Rouhani told the people of Iran, “we consider this agreement a stating point for moving forward” toward peace in the region and the world. According to brave warriors such as Ted Cruz of Scott Walker or Marco Rubio, failure to demand bombs is a mark of the coward. As I recall, none of these “brave warriors” has ever served in the US military. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was attacked for negotiating with Communist dictator Joseph Stalin respond with: “Jaw, Jaw is better than War, War.”

Bush Legacy Lives On And On

Let me recite the new Republican fairy tale about Iraq.

1. The famous Surge ended the war in Iraq and the good guys won.

2. Iraq was a peaceful land in 2009 when along came Barack Obama.

3. His inept lack of leadership ended peace and along came ISIS.

4. We should all thank God George Bush was President and his wonderful advisors, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

Reality Check:

1. President Obama DID offer to keep about 10,000 US troops in Iraq.

2. The point of contention was that he could not agree with Iraq demands that American soldiers would be subject to Islamic Law.

3. It was the Maliki government which Bush installed that persecuted Sunnis and led to their becoming friendly to ISIS.
