The Obama-Kerry Farewell Tour

Bibi Netanyahu said it best: “The entire Middle East is in flames, entire countries are collapsing, terrorism is rampant and for an entire hour the secretary of state attacks the only democracy in the Middle East.” To quote Archie Bunker…our sediments exactly.

Impotent, ineffective, weak and unproductive. Pick your adjective to describe Obama and Kerry’s foreign policies. How safe it is to go after the one country that he knows won’t do anything to them except talk. When people do something like this it is usually to deflect from the real issues. Kerry, Obama et al fit the bill exactly. Like the settlements in Israel are the only obstacle to peace? Come on. Get a life.

Trump was wise to tweet before Kerry spoke telling Israel to hang in there – January 20 is not far away. Blanche, ya think it’s too far away for Obama? Yes because he will have to endure Trump’s in-your-face tweets and speeches for three more weeks. Let’s just say if Obama could change the date of the inauguration he would, just like he would have liked to be able to run for a third term.

If you are planning to go to Times Square for New Years Eve the view may be somewhat obscured. A fleet of 65 garbage collection and sand trucks will line the perimeter, meant to stop would-be assailants from plowing trucks into the crowd of one million people.

Along with the 100 patrol cars which will also be used as blocker vehicles, there will be 7,000 officers, bomb-sniffing dogs and heavily armed counterterrorism units. Now don’t you feel safe? Blanche, can you imagine what the world has come to? Oich in vey.

Blanche, don’t you find it odd that for eight years Obama could barely make a decision to do anything but in the final three weeks of his presidency he’s suddenly perking up?

Today he ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and sanctioned Russian intelligence officials who Washington believes were involved in hacking U.S. political groups in the 2016 presidential election. They have 72 hours to leave the country. Can we talk?

Whoever hacked into the DNC and other places made no difference to the outcome of the election. The problem was the candidate. Cyber spying happens all the time. It’s just that this time it was so in-your-face that we are guessing if Obama did nothing he would look like a total woose. Plus of course, because Hillary did the obscene thing and lost the election, his legacy is now at risk.

Obama is intending to box-in Trump regarding the Russians as it seems he is not very happy with the Trump/Putin bromance. Trump will have to decide in a very few weeks whether or not to lift the sanctions and bring the Russian dudes back. If he does that it will look like he doesn’t believe the Russians were the hackers. Blanche, ya think Trump has his hands full? Doesn’t it look like Obama is trying to bury him in issues before he even puts a toe in the White House? Yet another deflection tactic.

What a sad story with Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher dying within a day of each other. May they both rest in peace and may their families find some solace in the fact that a mother is together with her beloved daughter.

Did you know that Amazon never releases its sales figures? Interesting eh? Instead they give you little teasers like they sold enough $4,000 televisions that they could reach the peak of Mount Everest nine times. Or they sold enough KitchenAid Mixers this holiday to make nearly 7.5 million cookies at once and a watch was sold ever 1.5 seconds this season. Jeff Bezos is one very, very rich dude.

Due to the brawls in malls all over America on boxing day, some centres have taken steps to counter this insane social media phenomenon. Unaccompanied minors will not be allowed into malls. Blanche we really like this edict.

Although innocent teens will get caught up in the net, those responsible have now found themselves accountable for their actions. You want to act like an immature spoiled brat? While you may not get caught,know that you will be treated like a three-year old child, unable to go shopping without your parents holding your hand.

Good Shabbos Happy Chanukah Happy New Year

we’ll talk…
