The Stewart-Obma Alliance

I have it on good authority that Fox News will soon expose the secret alliance that was formed by Jon Stewart and Barack Obama in their hidden White House conferences.Why did Jon Stewart secretly meet with Obama without informing his audience? We can no reveal the secret plot that threatens the very foundation of American society.

1. Jon Stewart is Jewish.

2. Barack Obama is an African, not only by birth, but by spirit.

3. Jews want to take over the world and kill all the Christians.

4. White Christians owned most black slaves.

5. It is clear these two men are plotting to end the rule of Christian whites and empower Jews and Black folk.

5. Ted Cruz is right. The Obama government wants to take away our guns and then turn our women over to Hispanic and black criminals.

6. Mike Huckabee is right except it is not Israelis that Stewart wants to bake in the ovens, but white Christian men. After they get rid of white NRA guys, who will be left to protect our virgin white women??

France, Connexion: “Tunnel Delays”

Not for El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Less Fertilizer Used”

Not in the US Congress!

Sweden, Local: “Fewer Beggars Around”

Actually, there are more than ever Wall Street beggars seeking government handouts!

In America, the only “action” is to make them available to all.

As long as Donald Trump is around, hair is never naked.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Right To Be Forgotten”

Sorry, that is against the law when it comes to Putin.

Security For Homeland?

The terrorist attack in Chatanooga, Tennessee has raised questions concerning the effectiveness of Homeland Security. From day one of creation of this Cabinet Department, false hopes have been used to defend its performance. First, there is no way, no program, no plan which can result in the absence of terrorist attacks. This is a nation of over 300,000,000 people scattered over three thousand miles so it is virtually impossible to prevent attacks. Republicans constantly worry about our southern border with Mexico while ignoring our 3,000 mile border with Canada. Honestly, any terrorist with even a limited knowledge of geography knows it is easer entering America via a northern route than confronting the heavily guarded southern border.

Homeland Security now claims that over the past year it has thwarted”over 60 terrorist attacks.” I will not dispute this figure,but exactly what constitutes a “planned terrorist attack?” Is the planning process or is it the actual action that ensues. It is horrible that four Marines and a sailor died, but it is impossible to prevent all such attacks. Such is life, and such is death.

People Without Political Plans

After every example of hate crimes there arises groups which so love to demonstrate their anger and demand ACTION. Some of these groups are composed of people seeking a genuine change in the nature of American racism. Others posture in hope of getting publicity because they lack any program or plan of how to address the deep fixture of racism in America. Governor Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders were speaking to a group in Phoenix when demonstrators jumped up and forced them off the platform.

These people wanted an “action plan.” For some reason, this group had nothing other to specify what they desired other than an “action plan.” They want Justice Now. Regrettably, amy “action plan” would have to be long term. How about specifics:

1. A guaranteed annual income for each American.

2. Extend the Social Security tax from $116,000 to ALL INCOME.

3. Raise the minimum wage to $20 an hour.

4. Switch to a single payer Health Care program like most nations currently possess.

5. Guarantee the right of ALL Americans to vote.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I so long for an idea about Iran from Republicans, any idea would do.

We need a return of the DRAFT so Republicans can have their sons or grandsons sent off to battle.

My dream is seeing Donald Trump in a uniform leading men into battle.

For some reason, “President” Netanyahu is not allowed to conduct US foreign policy.

Oppose the nutty ideas of Netanyahu and one becomes an anti-Semite.

If Netanyahu can conduct our foreign policy can Obama run Israel’s domestic policy?

Oh for an entire day without a gun death!

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “Driver Took Bomber To Bomb”

This is one explosive story!

Australia, Canberra Times: “Same Sex Myths”

Back before front?

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Great Expectations”

We will have a single week without a new Republican presidential candidate?

France,Connexion: “Keep Cool”

These days in Chicago, we would so enjoy saying the word, “HOT.”

Norway, Norway Post: “Probe Liquor Breaches”

Burp!

Mexico Continues Acting Like Mexico

Let me make quite clear there is nothing wrong with the people of Mexico other than continuing to possess a government that is riddled with corruption. Heck, the President of Mexico had a contractor who does work for the government build him a new house.However, the latest example of corruption and inefficiency will undoubtedly produce at least three films depicting the escape from prison of notorious drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. To be fair, police did arrest him. To be fair he did reach a prison. To be fair, he actually spent at least a month in the jail. To be fair, guards did see him lying on his prison bunk.

However, one day, the drug lord went to take a shower. Somehow,his gang buddies knew the location of the shower room, and decided to construct a tunnel that was one mile long and high enough for someone to stand up and walk. Oops,sorry,about that walking statement,the tunnel had a rail line that allowed a person to ride a motorcycle and get out of jail for free.

I wonder if the government of Mexico has considered offering El Chapo the job of rebuilding the country.

The Art Of Political Selling

There is one pattern that has existed throughout the Obama administration, and that is his inept political ability to sell a good idea. Obama always behaves like a college professor who lectures and then assumes his “students” understand what was presented. Compared to Theodore or Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy or Abe Lincoln, Obama has completely failed to SELL his ideas. Sorry Barack, but a great president is a great salesperson.

1. Lincoln was a master of presenting complex ideas along with a joke or a demand that Americans display their greatness as people.

2. John Kennedy on day one of his presidency told the American people “what can you do for America?”

3. In 1940, England faced Nazi Germany alone and had run out of guns and ammunition. Most Americans did not want to go to war. So, in one of his fireside chats with Americans, Franklin Roosevelt used this metaphor: “if your neighbor’s house catches fire, and he comes to you asking to borrow a fire hose, surely, you would give him one. We are going to lend England destroyers and rifles and other equipment.” And, so England got military supplies that enabled it to continue fighting Germany. I have never heard a single metaphor from Obama that enables people to grasp an issue.

4. One night after America was at war, Franklin Roosevelt asked the American people to listen to him as he reviewed where American soldiers were fighting. By late evening, one out of two Americans had listened and followed his analysis of where fighting was going on. How many Americans today even know where Syria or Iraq are? Obama has never discussed these areas of fighting with Americans following with a map.

5. To this day I am shocked that we Americans never received an explanation about Obamacare from the government.

If Obama wants to sell this accord with Iran, he must become a president who talks WITH AMERICANS!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Scott Walker boasts of “taking on the unions.” People are in unions. Figure out your meaning.

$7.25 cents an hour for Walker’s enemy.

Donald Trump’s great sorrow is not being made a general to lead men into battle.

Some honor life, some death.

I often wonder at the last thoughts of those blowing self up.

I was raised in a world in which the goal was making it easy for people to vote.

Republicans now have enough candidates to form two football teams, let the game proceed.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?
