A look behind the scenes in the political world

Trump's Jewish Mini-Me

At a time when most Congressional Republicans are trying to distance themselves from Donald Trump, one is behaving like a clone of his party's presidential candidate, complete with mind-numbing outrageous charges and incendiary rhetoric.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, the lone Jewish Republican in this Congress, has called Barack Obama a "racist," sounded like a Trump birther questioning the president's heritage, accused him of having "no idea what he is doing" and implying he committed treason.

Who Will Bibi Endorse?

There has been speculation that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to endorse Donald Trump or at least would like to see him become the next president.

That's what former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close Trump advisor, reported after meeting with the prime minister and other top officials on his recent trip to Israel.

Trump's Other Wall

More and more Republicans want to build a wall, but not the one Donald Trump has in mind. Their wall is to protect them from what they increasingly believe will be a humiliating defeat for their presidential nominee and – possibly – catastrophic losses for congressional Republicans

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has sent out a frantic call for deep pocket Republican donors to dig deeper because Trump is putting the House GOP majority in danger. 

Over in the Senate the chances are better for a Democratic takeover.

Only Thing 'Rigged' Is Crybaby's Excuses

Donald Trump's complaints about a rigged election is just a crybaby looking for an excuse to use when he loses the election.

Like so much of his ranting it is based on a lie told over and over, louder and louder, as if that made it so.

Rudy: Bibi Endorses Trump

You'd think he learned his lesson four years ago, but if Rudy Giuliani is to be believed, Benjamin Netanyahu is once again endorsing the Republican candidate for president. 

That's because one of the Netanyahu government's greatest fears is as president, Hillary Clinton might try to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the former New York mayor told the Washington Post.
