We hope no one is surprised that Steve Bannon turned on Donald Trump like a rabid pit-bull. He is a pit-bull and his actions are to be expected.
The fact that he has written a book about his time in the White House should also come as no surprise. There is no doubt he kept scrupulous notes while there and now is doing a tell-all, I’m-gonna-get-back-at you book called Fire and Fury.
Such people are erratic at best, out of their minds, as Trump said, at worst. His longtime benefactors, billionaires Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer, are actively distancing themselves from him. It appears he has found another sucker to fund him, billionaire benefactor, Miles Kwok, aka Guo Wen Gui. Quite the name, eh Blanche?
It seems that this Kwok dude makes Trump and Bannon look like mickey mouse in dealing with people they think crossed them. Could be Bannon met his match and then some with this guy. In the meantime, stay tuned to the open feud between Trump and Bannon which is sure to keep heating up in the next few days as his book is due to be released tomorrow, despite Trump’s attempt at a court order to stop it.
Blanche happened to be in New York today when the mother-of-all storms – the bomb cyclone, hit New York and its environs. Can we talk?
The storm hit this morning but as of yesterday all schools and flights were already cancelled. That’s a good thing as it gives people time to get their act together vis-a-vis their children and travel plans.
What we found absolutely incredulous is the fact the most New Yorker’s have no snow tires.
Do they not know they live in the north where it snows? This should not come as a surprise to anyone as guess what – it snows every year! Do they not know when it snows and they don’t have the proper tires they can’t get up the slightest hill?
So what happens when people drive with no snow tires? Everything slows down to a crawl. No wonder they shut down the city. Nothing moves, cars spin out of control, 18-wheelers slide and also spin out of control. We say it’s about time that Americans living on the east coast wake up to the reality that yes, dearies, come January, you will be getting a snowstorm and you best be prepared.
Justin Trudeau blew it again. He’s looking more and more like the Montreal Canadiens on their seasonal losing streak.
In 2012, Joshua Boyle and his then-pregnant wife, Caitlan Coleman, were abducted in Afghanistan and held by the Taliban-linked Haqqani network. They were released in Pakistan in murky circumstances in October. Coleman had given birth to three children during captivity.
Two weeks before police laid 15 charges against Boyle, including eight counts of assault, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of forcible confinement, and one count each of misleading police, uttering death threats and administering someone a noxious substance, Trudeau brought Boyle, his wife and children to meet him on Parliament Hill.
One minute – bring out the barf bag – there’s a picture of Trudeau cuddling Boyle’s infant daughter. Seriously?
A government official, who would speak only on ‘background’, said the meeting had been requested by Boyle, and that Trudeau would grant the same meeting to any Canadian who had gone through a similarly harrowing experience. Not. We don’t believe that for a second.
Trudeau is the ultimate tree-hugging save-the-whale uber liberal who felt ‘sorry’ for the Boyles. There have been plenty of other hostages who never got a meeting with the Prime Minister, let alone have him hold their baby.
In case you didn’t yet realize it, our Prime Minister is way over his head in the job he holds. He simply does not have the intellectual capacity for it and unless he is 100% scripted, gets into serious trouble over and over again.
Looks like we’re back to deep throat (the Watergate mole) regarding Hillary Clinton and her foundation.
Speaking under anonymity, the deep throat of our generation said that a probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
For years, news media have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Can we have a little talk here? The person speaking with anonymity values their life. Over the years, people who crossed the Clintons somehow died. Either their car went mysteriously out of control or they were stabbed in a ‘random’ robbery, or pick any scenario. Whoever is investigating them better watch their back, literally.
Good Shabbos, We’ll talk…
