There is so much going on in the world of politics that we will list each country and what’s flying:
USA: Yesterday, Robert Muller opened his mouth to say hello and goodbye. He was the one in charge of the Muller report, trying to determine if Trump committed a crime in order to get elected president. We will remind you that Muller and everyone who investigated Trump were all democrats, all wanted and all still want him out. How, you ask yourself, could this investigation be impartial? It couldn’t.
In essence he said that within his purview, he could not charge a sitting president with a crime. He also said they could not find Trump totally innocent. So he left the country hanging by a thread – impeach or not.
Muller said, “The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.” Ben Shapiro’s take: This is an invitation to impeachment.
Our take: Impeachment charges will paralyse the entire country. Nothing will move forward and the democrats will come out stinking for doing so. Nancy Pelosi gets this, no one else does. We don’t envy her task now, which is to hold back the dam of hysterical impeachers (is there such a word Blanche?) with one finger in the dike.
Israel: Netanyahu could not form a government and called another election for the beginning of September. Now that’s a total waste of hundreds of millions of dollars. What will the country do if he gets elected again and again can’t form a government? Have another election? There has to be a better way to do this.
Canada: Mark Carney, now head of the Bank of England is leaving his job in a few months. It’s no secret that many Liberals fear Trudeau will lead them to defeat in the next election – no kidding – and think that Carney would be a great replacement.
Of course outwardly Liberals are gasping for air and choking while trying to say that Trudeau is the best thing since chopped liver. Quietly we are guessing that most MP’s (save Anthony Housefather who cannot seem to think for himself), know exactly what Trudeau is – a pretty face with nice hair and air between his ears. Our guess is that many wish Trudeau would take a powder before the election.
And speaking of Trudeau, he just doesn’t get it. He’s still viewing himself as the hero and saviour of women. Vice-President Mike Pence is coming to Ottawa today, mainly to try and finish that never-ending free trade deal. What’s Trudeau doing? Bringing up abortion and other women’s rights.
So what’s the issue you ask? Bring it up but do it quietly without drawing attention to yourself. Unfortunately for Trudeau, that is impossible.
He needs to bring undue attention to the fact that he is saving the feminists. Of course that is a total crock as per Judy Wilson Raybould and Jane Philpott. As a woman, as long as you agree with Trudeau, he’s your biggest defender. Cross him and you’re drawn, quartered and fired.
Joe Biden’s handlers have done a good job of keeping him away from the media, for good reason. A picture surfaced yesterday of Biden, v.e.r.y close to a ten-year-old girl. The papers have called Biden’s affection for this young girl ‘somewhat odd’.
We call it inappropriate. It is inappropriate for an old man to standing behind a young girl, pushing up against her while holding her shoulders. It doesn’t look right.
If Biden can’t control himself, his huge lead in the polls will very quickly disappear. He may be a very affectionate old man, but he comes across as an overly affectionate groper.
After spending months lobbying the federal government to avoid finding itself in this position, SNC Lavalin will now stand trial on corruption charges. It hoped to use a new legal mechanism — a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) — to pay a fine rather than risk conviction.
If the story sounds familiar it’s because Judy Wilson Raybould and Jane Philpott lost their jobs by refusing to allow SNC to pay a fine as per the instructions of Justin Trudeau, his sidekick Gerald Butts, his assistant Katie Telford and Privy Council Michael Wernick.
No one knows why they all resigned. Everyone knows why JWR and Philpott resigned and they will, in the end, get the last laugh. When that happens, we will take much pleasure in gloating.
Hard as it is to admit, we are rooting for a Toronto team, the Rafters. After 24 years, they are in the final basketball championship games.
We know very little about basketball other than the players are massively tall, sweat so much while playing that people are constantly mopping up the court (feh) and many of them have multiple tattoos on their arms and other places. We do hope they win even though they come from Toronto.
Good Shabbos We’ll talk…
