Could Everyone Please Get a Grip?

Could everyone please calm down? What’s with the media’s hysteria about Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020? They already have created #oprah2020. Get a grip people.

First of all, where was she during all the years when her friend Weinstein couldn’t keep his pants on? She had to have known what was going on as there must have been women who came to her for advice about him. Now she looks like a hero because she gave a speech sounding like Michelle Obama telling young girls that she will be their saviour? Bring on the barf bag.

Blanche, you think she wants people to dig into her private life with a microscope? Right down to the colour of her interhoisen (underwear)? She needs to be president like we need snow in the summer.

The real issue here is that the Democrat party has no one with any pizazz to lead them. They do have some women that could run…like Elizabeth Warren aka pochahantas or Kristen Gilibrand who makes watching the grass grow look like fun. See the problem?

The only woman in politics right now who could run and win is Nikki Haley and she’s a staunch republican. The democrats have to take a deep breath, take a long look in a mirror and then think for about a year. Maybe then they could come up with someone to lead them.

Given all of the above, imagine this ticket in 2020: Oprah running for president with Michelle Obama as her running mate. Now that would be the mother-of-all-tickets, eh Blanche?

It’s about time that Israel took the offensive. They recently published a blacklist of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) organizations whose members and leaders will be prevented from entering the country. Blanche, do we hear people clapping?

Among the beauties is a French organization that receives taxpayer funds from state bodies, a British advocacy group whose patrons include the leader of the opposition Labour Party, and a South African solidarity campaign that regularly features antisemitic slogans and images in its propaganda.

There are also groups in the United States: The American Friends Service Committee, Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace – the latter an overtly anti-Zionist group that operates outside the formal structures of the Jewish community, with financial support from the US progressive Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Special eh?

In case you are still not convinced that this BDS movement is truly bs, here’s a sample of someone who belongs to one of these groups.

Her name is Rebecca and when she heard that she would be barred from Israel, here’s what she said: “Despite the fact that my grandparents are buried there, that my aging in-laws still live there, and my extensive ties of friendship and family, my support for the BDS movement for Palestinian rights now excludes me from Israel.”

Wah, wah, wah. That’s what liberals do when they don’t get their way. They cry and carry on like two-year-olds. Here’s a headline for Rebecca: You want to play with the big boys and girls then act like one. Why would Israel let you into the country when all you want to do is destroy it? When you support the ‘poor palestinians’. For your next trip, go to Gaza. They’ll let you in.

Bannon’s out at Breitbart most likely due to a power struggle between him and Trump.

The very wealthy Mercers funded Breitbart and also fund Trump. When Wolff’s book Fire and Fury was released last week, there was a nasty comment by Bannon about Donald Trump Jr.

In June 2016 there was a meeting at Trump Tower, which Donald Trump Jr. attended. The Russians were present at that meeting and claimed to have damaging information on Hillary. In the book Fire and Fury Bannon referred to Donald Jr. as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” for going to the meeting.

On Sunday, Bannon retreated from those comments, saying Trump Jr. was a patriot and that he had labeled the actions of Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, as treasonous, not those of the president’s son.

The author, Wolff, disputed Bannon’s comment and poof! now he’s gone from Breitbart. Some pundits were asking who exactly controls Trump’s base supporters – Bannon or Trump. Well, it appears that Trump does.

Blanche, bring on the barf bag. The big one. The Oakland Raiders introduced Jon Gruden as their next head coach. The most interesting part of the deal is that the Raiders were willing to make an unprecedented contract offer to entice him: 10 years and US$100 million. Can we talk?

Unless he’s the bionic man, he’s still human. This is exactly what is wrong with the world. A football coach making $10 million a year while nurses and health-care professionals have to fight for a small raise?

Heads up – pardon the pun. On January 11, in 20 days, there will be a super blue moon eclipse, partially visible from Montreal. Unless of course it’s cloudy in which case you can put your head down and look where you’re going.

We’ll talk…
