  1. Trump movie well received at Cannes. Ends up portraying Trump very badly Jeremy Strong as Roy Cohn Legal battles https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/movies/2024/05/20/donald-trump-the-apprentice-cannes/?utm_campaign=wp_the_5_minute_fix&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&wpisrc=nl_fix
  2. I thought this was strangely funny. Though I'm sure RK's cult following will rave! Adam Kissinger tweet. How do you show the American people that you’re “one of them” and understand their challenges? RK says he "feels naked" without his falcons! She's got his steely eyes!
  3. How Rudy Giuliani tried, and failed, to avoid his latest indictment You can't make this stuff up! Rudy evaded process servers until he was served a summons on his surprise 80Th birthday celebration. Just before being served he confidently wrote this on twitter with a picture of him and his friends saying. “If Arizona authorities can’t find me by tomorrow morning: 1. They must dismiss the indictment; 2. They must concede they can’t count votes,” Giuliani wrote on X at 7:06 p.m. on Friday. The post included a picture of Giuliani surrounded by six other people, all smiling. https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2024/5/19/2241561/-Rudy-G-s-Process-Server-Sang-Happy-Birthday-to-Him-And-then-Served-Him-Talk-about-a-Savage-Move
  4. Wow! What a power packed lineup! Hey Ron, might be a good time to go spend a weekend in the big city! heh heh
  5. Comcast told MSNBC hosts to curb rampant Israel criticism during Oct. 7 Hamas attacks: report And the douchbag head of NBC Universal Caesar Conde complied. This is the same douchebag who got rid of Meidi Assan and first hired former RNC Chairman Ronna Mc Danie!! https://www.yahoo.com/news/comcast-told-msnbc-hosts-curb-164432798.html?fr=yhssrp_catchall
  6. What!? Now Biden sending a billion in defensive aid to Israel! Double messages!. Is he trying to make up to Bibi for his recent harsh rhetoric now? Is Biden to Bibi like Michael Cohen was to Trump? Taking a mortgage out on our national debt to facilitate Bibi's big plans? Stay tuned! https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-sending-israel-1-billion-in-military-aid-biden-administration-tells-congress/ ***** Well it's happening! Biden to debate Trump on June 27th!
  7. This is U.S. mad dog killing machine insanity. Biden has stopped one shipment of 3500 bombs to Israel. What they don't tell you is that Biden has already shipped 300,000 such bombs to Israel since Oct 7th! So the amount being withheld by Biden is the equivalent of 1% of the bombs we've already sent Israel! These bombs come in 3 types, 250 lbs, 500 lbs. and 1000lbs. In addition the U.S. has already sent 2,000 lbs.Mark 84 bombs to Israel! A further breakdown of the bombs we've supplied Israel is in this article. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/05/11/us/israel-gaza-bombs.html?algo=editorial_importance_fy_email_news&block=4&campaign_id=142&emc=edit_fory_20240511&fellback=false&imp_id=7312242213387188&instance_id=123092&nl=for-you&nlid=61798350&pool=fye-top-news-ls&rank=1&regi_id=61798350&req_id=7115410283261254&segment_id=166381&surface=for-you-email-news&user_id=48552702f942aacb0810b9de5ca41c55&variant=0_edimp_fye_news_dedupe
  8. W.! I'm also amazed at how quickly some celebrities and the MSM run with the commentary that any one protesting for a Gaza ceasefire is anti Semitic! But on another matter concerning Clinton. Along those lines W. I've often thought Jon Stewart is a better interviewer sometimes than he is a comedian. Here he has Hilary Clinton and Condoleeza Rice,( in my view, whose reputation should be one step away from being prosecuted for war crimes!) At a certain point, there becomes a palpable tension and defensiveness among the 2 for their historic defense of the MIC, when Stewart asks where all this defense lobbying and spending has got us, and the good of the world at large. There are many times where I want to jump in and ask for clarity in their responses. It's interesting to consider what did we learn from say, George Bush's War in Iraq,? There does seem to be a consensus now that the war was a mistake and that is held by almost all of the Democrats and now probably near half of the Republicans, I would estimate. But history will probably overlook the deeper damage done by that war. With the fallout from that war.,it left the entire region unsettled. ( I don't believe Rice's assertion that Syria , for example came undone completely on it's own) with a massive refugee problem that has placed a huge burden particularly on Europe and Canada which is probably a big cause of the current populist uprisings throughout the West! As someone whose interviewed many people on radio, Stewart establishes a collegial rapport with them in the first half and starts to press more in the second half and it ends just when it starts getting good, but allows both Clinton and Rice to tie everything up in congenial wrap of agreement, I assume because he was hoping to interview them again. but is back now on the Daily Show. I would take this from 22.20.
  9. "demonstrable facts"?This kind of nonsense goes on on the JFKA side frequently. Premises that are just speculation confidently stated as "demonstrable facts." There are no demonstrable facts concerning events that never occurred! You have to focus and listen. I can't speak for W. I don't think Biden could have done anything for 3 months. So most of those lives lost are not Biden's fault. I'm not saying that would have been a failure at all. Quite the opposite, stopping weapons to Israel 4 months ago and having Bibi saying "screw you" as he has now, would have been all we could do. There were warnings from Israel to civilians to get out of combat areas. You don't have sufficient knowledge on the ground to speculate 100,000 deaths or anything. As it turns out, Bibi has said "screw you" to Biden. You completely ignored this. So if we believe this Biden is not going to deter Bibi from committing your speculated 100,000 death invasion. We'll see how many they kill and whatever's less than your speculative 100,000, you'll deem a success? heh heh At a certain point, you have to be in the now, not some speculative future and try to save as many lives as you can in the present. I'd say it was better to start taking a strong stand 4 months ago, stop sending weapons, negotiate in the region and have American policy look more impartial, consistent and humanitarian and let Israel solely suffer in world opinion, for the consequences for their actions.
  10. Ron you're preaching to the choir. That was the song and the album of the year when I was in college. Nobody doesn't know Layla! Yeah that last cut, Thorn Tree in the Garden was a great song W. I checked and it was 19 days after I saw the Allman Bros. at Winterland that Duane Allman died. P.S. Whoa! I wanted to see the Nuggets and the Timberwolves but apparently that solar flare has taken away a band of channels!
  11. 133,000 dead,? What are you talking about? 33,000 dead is an accepted fact! But you have no basis in fact to speculate about any number of deaths that might have happened or may happen.. Why not just really embellish your case and call it a million lives? It sounds more impressive! So Biden is evaluated in terms of some subjective, projected catastrophic vision of yours and comes out on top. In your mind is there any scenario by which Biden's policy becomes a failure? If so what is it? Sandy, Had Biden stopped military aid to Israel months ago, what would he do now to stop Netanyahu from invading Rafah? So can we now, say if Bibi now invades Rafah that Biden's policy is a failure? Haven't you heard? Bibi has now said they're prepared to go it alone, with our weapons or without. If we believe what he says, then stopping military weapons to Israel was never a deterrent. So we could have just stopped sending weapons to Israel in January, and look much better in the eyes of the world and not have the blood on our hands we now have. I guess you don't believe what Bibi's saying. I hope you're right. * Not that I ever understood the logic behind how continuing to send weapons to Israel could be said to be a "deterrent " when in the meantime 33,000 lives are lost and as W. noted 56,00 buildings are destroyed and 600,00 people are starving.
  12. As I said, Biden couldn't do much in 2023. It was too soon. The Israeli public needed some time to reflect without fear and the U.S. wasn't politically ready to take a stand against Israel. In 2024. Biden had to lead public opinion. He's been taking his time and many have died and many are now starving. Again, but how can 33,000 dead and 1.6 to 2.3 million displaced be considered any kind of example of Biden's restraining force, much less a "spectacular success". To say that is way over the top! All we can say is that a showdown was inevitable and what happens in the future would have been sped up had Biden acted with more resolve at first , and not just a lot of Israeli "shock and awe" being met with Biden's "awe shucks Bibi , please stop!" It would seem like that W. But the other reason we all share is that job one has for years now been to just ensure that Trump doesn't get re elected. And many will forgive Biden for anything just to make sure he gets re elected. I agree, I never liked him. I think anyone who watched him in his several campaigns for the Presidency in the 20th century would get the same rather slimy impression. But as President, domestically he has the best record of any Democrat in our time. Much better than JFK! No one thought he'd do what he's done! Sandy: And now Biden would have no bargaining chips left. Well, we'll at last find out if we ever had any bargaining chips now.
  13. Thank you, W! That explains a lot! JFK's Grandson is doing a number of comedy skits poking fun at his cousin RK's candidacy. If you open one of the links, you can scroll down and see all of his skits. Using Cartoonish Accents, J.F.K.’s Grandson Insults and Mocks Robert F. Kennedy Jr. In an escalation of the family feud, the son of Caroline Kennedy portrayed heavily accented characters who suggested that his cousin, the presidential candidate, was on steroids, not too smart and a liar. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/05/08/us/politics/rfk-jr-jack-schlossberg.html?algo=editorial_importance_fy_email_news&block=4&campaign_id=142&emc=edit_fory_20240508&fellback=false&imp_id=389947991292497&instance_id=122755&nl=for-you&nlid=61798350&pool=fye-top-news-ls&rank=1&regi_id=61798350&req_id=4152365644874749&segment_id=166041&surface=for-you-email-news&user_id=48552702f942aacb0810b9de5ca41c55&variant=0_edimp_fye_news_dedupe
