Marco and Hillary’s Big Adventure

150415-MarcoMarco Rubio showed his latin cred by talking about his Cuban refugee parents. He also scored points for upward mobility by mentioning that his father was a bartender – if you consider running for president to be upwardly mobile.

Hillary and Huma headed for the border – of Iowa. They stopped their Scoobie Doo van in Maumee, Ohio and made sort of a secreted sortie to Chipotle. They showed up wearing sunglasses and went unrecognized.

Snow Jump

If it doesn’t snow anymore that’s climate change. If it does snow that’s climate change too.

Man caused disasters aren’t what they used to be. In 2001 people jumped out of windows in New York because they made a grim choice. Now they jump out of windows in Boston into snow piles for fun – and to piss off the mayor.

Here’s an interesting Daily Beast article about a Yale study that looks at vaccines, climate, and politics.

A Pox on Anti-Vaxxer Pols

Are anti-vaxxers the soccer moms of 2016? Not likely. Chris Christie gave them a shot but he’s not breaking out from the Republican pack.

Politicians often “inoculate” themselves by condemning an issue expected to be unpopular with voters. A hard line against parents who don’t vaccinate their children could be the litmus test of the day for 2016 presidential campaign. Christie may need a booster.

He’s quarantined himself from interviewers on his luxury trip to England.

Never Again

150130-never-again

It’s “never again’ time again.

The beginning of January marked the murder of 4 Jews at a Kosher market as part of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonist massacre. Last week marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Also last week, Dr. Krauthammer and Professor Victor Davis Hanson wrote about the current status of Jews in the world. “Never again” isn’t a sure thing. Anti-semitism has been the norm in Europe “for millennia” reports Krauthammer. The murder of 6 million Jews by the losing side set the cause back for a while. But now it’s on the rise again.

Jews aren’t concentrated in Europe anymore. Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasralla likes funneling them into Israel. Krauthammer says, “It took the Nazis seven years to kill 6 million Jews. It would take a nuclear Iran one day.”

President Obama was a no-show at the Charlie Hebdo world leaders’ march for solidarity. He’ll be a no-show in March for Bibi’s speech to Congress too.

In the meantime, The Washington Free Beacon reports that Iran has targeted Benjamin Netanyahu’s children for assassination.

President Fruit Loop

150123-bibiOne day YouTube star GloZell Green is thrashing in her milk filled bath tub bobbing for Fruit Loops. Next thing you know she’s interviewing the president of the United States.

The president is concerned that the dignity of his office has been gravely damaged – by Speaker Boehner.

John Boehner invited the Israeli Prime minister to speak to Congress. Bibi accepted. Obama blew his lid. Mouthpiece Josh Ernest claimed it was a violation of protocol for Congress to extend the invitation without the permission of the co-equal executive branch. Payback was promised. This was no mere violation of the Constitution.

John Kerry is especially miffed at being dissed by Netanyahu after all he’s done for him. Somebody, give him a hug. And, James Taylor, could you please come back and sing You got a Friend?

Meanwhile the president dissed the Main Stream Media. They’ve long been in the tank for him. Now he’s in the tub with GloZell. But it wasn’t all milk and Fruit Loops.  GloZell upstaged the msm with a question about Cuba. She demanded to know how he could “justify negotiating with the guy who puts the dick in dictatorship”.
