Bibi Endorses Trump. Not Really. At Least Not Yet

The headline reads: Netanyahu Endorses Trump, Says “Iowans are Idiots – No One Does Islamophobia Like Donny”

If you didn't know it was a joke you'd think it was real. 

Trump Schlonged By Tricky Ted

Donald Trump has been called many things, but gracious loser isn't one of them. 

He's saying Ted Cruz "stole" the Iowa Caucus by "fraud" and "dirty tricks" and he wants a "new election" or to have Monday's vote "nullified."  Ain't gonna happen, and he knows it, but he's using the incident to damage his surging leading rival going into Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.

Trump: What If?

Donald Trump has one great advantage over all the other presidential candidates:  he has no set of core beliefs.  He reminds me of that old Groucho Marx line, "Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others."

He's the current frontrunner in a close race with Ted Cruz with the rest of the field training far behind.  The GOP establishment wishes both would go away, but they're warming to Trump because they think he'd have a better chance of winning in November and can't stomach Cruz.

Trump, Rubio Trash Talking

Donald Trump, a malevolent birther, called Ted Cruz a Canadian anchor baby better qualified to be prime minister of that country than president of the United States.  Sen. Marco Rubio has set his sites further abroad when it comes to another presidential wannabe, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

The Republican junior senator from Florida likes to cite his membership on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to support his claim as an expert on international relations, but some recent gaffes suggest that his notoriously poor attendance record may be taking a toll.

Is 2016 The Year Of The Jew?

Ann Coulter complains GOP presidential hopefuls are pandering to all "those f***ing Jews" with their strong statements in support of Israel. To the dismay of the anti-Semites, there's more to the 2016 campaign than politicians pandering to Jewish supporters with pledges of undying loyalty to Israel.

For the first time, there is a viable Jewish candidate for President of the United States, and another waiting in the wings.

Israel's Nuclear Capable U-boats

There's no clearer sign of change than the Israeli navy taking delivery this month of a German-built submarine on the same day the German defense ministry announced plans to acquire Israeli-built drones.

Who would have imagined the Jewish state sailing with German-built U-boats and the German Luftwaffe flying Israeli-built aircraft?

Is Equal Justice Just A Myth?

Sixteen-year-old Muhammed Abu Khdeir was snatched from an East Jerusalem street by three young Israeli men who beat him severely and then burned him alive. 

The murder was one of the sparks that led to the 20124 Gaza war.  Two of the young Jews, who were minors at the time of the attack, were convicted last year and are now up for sentencing.  Prosecutors are asking for two life sentences.  The third man, the purported leader of the assault, has pleaded innocent by reason of mental illness.

Beware Pols' Empty Promises

How gullible do Republicans, especially the Bush brothers, think we Jews are?  Very, judging by their empty promises to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

In this week's GOP presidential debate in North Charleston, S.C., Jeb Bush repeated his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  A month earlier he told another South Carolina audience that on his first day in the Oval Office his second move would be to order the embassy moved as "a show of solidarity" with the Jewish state.  

Israel Gets Passing Mention In GOP Debate

Israel was mentioned only three times, almost in passing, in Thursday night's sixth GOP presidential debate  -- there's one more, in Des Moines, before the February 1 Iowa Caucus. It was a matter of retracing old grounds with nothing new to add.

Cruz And 'New York Values'

What did Ted Cruz really mean when he said Donald Trump represents "New York values?"

On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, where the evangelical vote is critical for Republicans and the Texas senator and New York real estate mogul are in a virtual dead heat, they've broken their bromance and begun trashing each other.

Trump has polished up his birther credentials and changed targets from Barack Obama to the Canadian-born Cruz.
