told you. I wake up every day, right here, right in Punxsutawney,
it's always February 2nd, and there's nothing I can do about it.
I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is
-- stand up to [the Israelis]. It just boggles the mind. They
always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the
time. I got to the point where I wasn't writing anything down. If the
American people understood what a grip those people have got on our
government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don't
have any idea what goes on.

Bibi punches the "Palestinians were Nazis"
button again, gets international blow-back this time
It is only recently that Americans --
without whose support Israeli apartheid cannot survive -- are beginning to
see Palestinians as victims of the i-Jews' land-grabbing, apartheid policies,
and terrorism. The i-Jews have long pushed the button Bibi was
trying to push this week -- associating the Palestinians with the
Nazis. But within the context of this softer view of the
Palestinians and the harder view of i-Jews, Bibi's playing the Nazi card
was the wrong move and any points Bibi could have hoped to have scored
were swamped by the international blow-back.
fight's a-comin': Loretta Lynch is sorting
out Hillary's eMail
Part II of a two part
demotic term "cat-fight" sounds so sexist these days, but it is
not used here in a demeaning way, quite the contrary, for I think it is
important to emphasize that these are two very powerful women, and it is
good that today it is not all that uncommon for women to wield such
power. I mean, I cannot think of too many instances in the history
of our species where two such powerful women have squared off against each
other. What comes first to mind is Queen Elizabeth's
"tiff" with Mary, Queen of Scots, which did not end well
for Mary, who was beheaded in 1587 pursuant to the reluctant order of
Elizabeth. No eMails were involved in that case, of course, maybe
because Mary had enough sense not to keep her server in her
basement. But, interestingly, missing letters and other
"personal" correspondence played a major role in her
I hope that decades and
centuries from now the look-back lesson from the Lynch-Clinton cat-fight
will be a restatement of the lesson from the Elizabeth-Mary cat-fight: No
woman and no man, no matter how powerful, is beyond the reach of an
honest, principled person who has the power and the obligation to uphold
Here come Loretta!
Part I of a two part series
in August I almost put up a
piece predicting that by the end of the year Hillary Clinton would
not be in the running for the Democratic nomination. But I put it off on
the tried and true principle that discretion is the better part of valor,
thinking that if I was wrong, it would irreparably damage my unrivaled
reputation among the four regular readers of this blog, all of whom are incarcerated in mental institutions with WiFi
access in the padded rooms.
Itís mid-October now and a lot of things have changed: pumpkins are
carved and lit; a dismal wintry drizzle has migrated into this southern
border-area of the boreal forest, and the red-tails and barn swallows have
migrated out; my washing machine spin-cycle has gone on the blink. But not
much has changed in the HRC story, which is very significant in itself.
Oh, yeah, Hil is screaming bloody murder about boner-for-a-brain Kevin
McCarthyís comment about the House Benghazi Committee being
really just a $4.1M exercise in political marksmanship. But with
respect to Hil's protestations, let me tell you something: Loretta
Lynch couldnít care less about what the Republicansí motives are
or were. I think now the time is ripe for the prediction I put on hold
something as evil as Israli apartheid
be advocated in a beatuiful way?
5 am this morning I was sniffing around over at
Plato's Guns and bumped into a re-tweet of this
article by Palestinian-American Susan
Abulhawa. Suddenly I
found m'self thinking deep, philosophical thoughts, which I almost never
do, particularly at that time of day when I'm mostly thinking about going
back to bed. What I was pondering was the aesthetics of evil.
Here's the result of that pondering: a (typically) over-cooked comment I
left at Plato. (They tolerate me. Mostly.) I certainly recommend the
Abulhawa article, it's about the decline of the evil enterprise the world
calls "Israel." But my concern here is the broader issue of
whether it is possible to advocate evil and violence in a beautiful way.
unseen deletion from
the Obama "60 Minutes" interview with Steve Kroft
NEWS FLASH !!!
From the LogoPhere News Room
Unknown to most of our 4 regular readers,
like all top news agencies LogoPhere has an anonymous source working
inside the White House, Lamont Rufus
Washington. Lamont was nominated
by President Barak Obama in 2009 and confirmed by Congress in 2014 as White
House janitor-in-chief. It was the first and last thing Obama and
Congress ever agreed on. Lamontís area of operation includes cleaning
the presidential editing room where Obama personally edits the tapes of
CBS "60 Minutes" interviews before they are aired.
Our anonymous source, Lamont, has just advised the LogoPhere
staff Ė consisting entirely of me and my
pot-bellied pig, Officer Pickles, who answers the LogoPhere 911
hot line and justifies our use of the first person plural Ė that last night he
recovered from the floor of the WH editing room a short section of tape that was
deleted from Steve Kroftís interview
with Barak Obama that aired on "60 Minutes" on Oct11.2015.
LogoPhere is now releasing a transcript
of the part of the interview that the American people never saw.
[Cue: drum roll.]
GoI boys and their magic knife-tricks
Image credit: Shaul Hanuka
Knives are high-profile in Palesrael these days. i-Jews are getting stabbed in
retaliation for stabbing and shooting Palestinians; Palestinians are
getting stabbed for stabbing i-Jews. It's the Holy Land, in other words --
cycle of love among the children of Abraham.
Of course the i-Jews
have the upper hand because while the Palestinians
are armed with nothing more than their shivs and rocks, the Government of
Israel (GoI) bullies are armed with the best
gear purchased by the American taxpayer -- M-4's, M-16's, side arms, grenades, tanks,
snipers, well ... you know. And the mayor of Jerusalem -- who is a
Jew, for some reason I don't understand -- is urging all the i-Jews
to put their pieces in their pockets when they leave home. Like I
say, the Holy Land.
Why Huffington Post ain't worth
it's written on: Reasons 1 - 3
Huffington Post may lead the left wing blathering about Citizens
United and they may cry "foul ball" on the mega-donations to
Republicans from the Koch brothers or Sheldon Aldeson, but the sort of
corporate contributions HP is making to Clinton's campaign go far, far
beyond the millions of dollars contributed by the likes of the Kochs or
Aldeson. HP is donating a Clinton ad campaign worth millions and millions to
capture the hearts, minds, and votes of the country's bimbo blondes,
and I hope neither the irony nor the oxymoron of that assertion go unnoticed.
