The Games He Plays
There is much to discuss this week with the Memo, the Olympics (Opening Ceremony today), the government budget and lots more. So, with no holds barred, lets begin with the
"much to do about nothing" memo release theatrics, staring our despicable "dictator" and his power-seeking posse. No, the memo did not vindicate our current corrupt commander, it actually added fuel to the fire which will hopefully vindicate all of us, sane Americans, who insist that, not only does the Emperor have no clothing but he's a lying, cheating narcissist who's only in this game to boost his Monopoly holdings. Though he might think more seriously about obtaining a "get off of jail" card with Justice Obstruction hanging over his head. And of course his lawyers insist he refrain from an under oath chit chat with Mueller (due to his lying habit) but could this lead to a subpoena? More concerning than the selfish acts of #45 is the depth of doofus devotees (Nunes and others) who continue to prop up his deviancy for power and gain. What happened to our moral and ethical compass? I've always believed that good wins out in the end but truly wish we would hurry up and reach the end of this Drumpf debacle. Hopefully Mueller and his team will complete the inquiry soon and prove that indeed POTUS and his posse colluded with the Russians in the last election and then tried to obstruct the investigation. In the meantime, we need to figure out how to protect our 2018 election from more interference. And one last thing, after last week's State of the Union, Doofus announced that Dems who didn't applaud during parts of his speech were acting "treasonous". We know his vocabulary sucks as he often misunderstands and mispronounces words, so here's Congressman
Hakeem Jeffries from Brooklyn/Queens, NY to give him a Treason Lesson:
Russia has never held a high moral reputation and this extends throughout their global activities, like their well known drug-enhanced Olympic athletes. The Olympic Charter states,
"respect for universal fundamental ethical principles"
. Respect, Ethics and Principles are antithetical to Russia which is why the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has banned 13 Russian athletes from competing this year. Apparently, like Drumpf's golf cheating strategy, the Russian government condones cheating with the use of illegal enhancement drugs during (probably all) previous Olympics to give their athletes an edge while competing. On the respected spectrum of athletes, Israel will be sending their largest Winter delegation this year with 10 competitors. For a desert region country, it's not surprising that Israel has never won a Winter Olympic medal, but this could be her victorious year.
Also in Olympic news, althetics from both North and South Korea will be marching and competing together for the first time. And the North Korean dictator's sister,
Kim Yo Jong
will be representing her country but hopefully won't face off with Otto Warmbier's father who will also attend the opening ceremony. FYI, just as this email arrives to your inbox or on Facebook at 6:00am Eastern Time, the
Olympic Opening Ceremony
will be taking place in South Korea, but it will also be replayed at 8pm tonight on NBC. Our US team will be led by VP
Good luck to these fresh faced Israeli athletes!
So we know Russia has it menacing tentacle all over the world and another novarious cash deposit was found at the
NRA to help broadcast $30 million worth of ads supporting Dangerous Don. The NRA was founded in 1871 to protect the rights of gun owners but in this century their focus has shifted to protecting the profits of gun manufacturers. The facts (not rhetoric or opinion) are that a majority from both political parties want safer gun regulations, but this fact doesn't seem to translate into DC legislation. I've got a solution. I suggest someone create a
Billionaires Coalition (
Warren Buffett, Oprah, Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos, George Soros and others) to pools some pocket change together and purchase (or attempt a hostile takeover) of the largest gun manufacturers so they can create an internal sensible supply chain for their products. Sure, there will be Profits Lost but this will convert to many more Lives Saved. That's the idea so if anyone wants to share this business plan with Warren, Oprah, Bill or anyone else... be my guest.

Spending our Money
Thursday at Midnight was the deadline for Congress to pass their 2 year budget deal. This bill will deal with the biggies like Military, Infrastructure, Opioid Addiction, Debt Ceiling, Disaster Relief and more... all with the promise that Congress will bring the Dreamers issue to a seperate vote but #45 still wants his wall built and his new idiotic idea of a (time/$$ consuming) Military Parade down Penn. Ave. All the other big global dictators have military parades. Boo hoo, it's not fair that Drumpt doesn't get to show off his "power" to the world.

's halftime show but it seems many critics found it out of sync and disrespectful of Prince who objected to post-mortem appearances. You can judge for yourself about his new video,
Man of the Woods
, from his new album with a cameo by his wife, Jessica Biel. I found it catchy and enjoyable to watch:
But if you prefer a sweet vintage video of iconic

, I think you'll enjoy this 3 medley collection with pop up harmonies:
Wishing you and your family a
Sweet and Peaceful Shabbat Shalom.
