Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: War and Dick Lebeau

Posted on October 20, 2020
Trump needs a war. And, Joe Biden needs Dick LeBeau.

Let’s go to War first. Sheldon Adelson would prefer it that way. He’s 87 years old and Trump is his last best chance to destroy Iran.

I’ve played the clip of Sheldon at Yeshiva University twice. Take another look. According to Adelson, the way to “negotiate” with Iran is devoid of niceties, “you drop an Atomic Bomb in their desert and you tell them the next one is in downtown Tehran.”

You should have seen that clip many times on the so-called “progressive channel”, MSNBC. Progressives are for peace, right? I mean if they’re not that would mean the Right is correct in saying “they’re hypocrites.”

Back to Adelson. Sheldon plays a number of roles. He is the single most powerful private citizen in both Israel and the USA. He was Trump’s largest financial contributor in 2016 and the largest contributor to the Trump Inaugural Committee. He gave $75 Mil to Trump last week, and coincidentally, Trump has asked for the next debate to be limited to Foreign Policy. In other words, Iran.

Are you telling me that Sheldon Adelson did not have a conversation with Mr. Donald Trump before releasing that $75 MIL? Take it from me, they had a few. And, they talked about Iran. And, Sheldon wants what he’s always wanted. The sole remaining questions are how much of a beating will satisfy the blood lust of the Right Wing of the Israel Lobby and how much of a beating will Trump agree to administer.

Very little will render us speechless…..(Updated)

But this sure did.

A pretty bold billboard considering this is less than a month old:

Judge removes Scott Walker as manager of dad’s finances over ‘misspending’ ~ Anita Lee

So you have it folks, Scott mismanaged his parent’s finances, got himself out of trouble while putting his Dad on the chopping block for another prison stint and the gang is evidently loud and proud of that fact.

To hell with the politics….

It’s getting to where someone can’t comment on government waste without a bunch of snowflakes melting down:

Joe Buck, Troy Aikman Were the Victims of an Inside Job ~ Jimmy Traina

This was done before the game, during a rehearsal. That means someone who works at FOX, either in a truck or a broadcast studio, pulled the clip on purpose and then leaked it on purpose to make Buck and Aikman look bad. And the fact that one of their co-workers would leak this clip to make the broadcast duo look bad really sucks.

You can be sure Fox is doing some sort of internal investigation to find the culprit.

Someone on the Fox Sports football crew isn’t a team player or as an old high school coach used to tell the team, “someone is pissing in the drinking water”.

As for Aikman’s opinion that spending big $$$$s doing jet flyovers of nearly empty stadiums is a bad idea, the facts support his read. I have this from the 2019 Heritage Foundation Military Assessment:

It is exactly days like today…

That make me wonder if Karma truly does exist in this world. Here is a small sample:

Rudy Giuliani faces questions after compromising scene in new Borat film ~

The only thing creepier than seeing Giuliani without his dentures on hanging under the desk at the oval office last year on South Park was the screen capture of him playing with himself on a hotel bed floating around on Twitter today.

Other Voices Tom Callaghan: Biden Can Lose

Posted on October 14, 2020

I can’t get John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama out of my mind. They are my idea of Candidates for President of the United States. Happy Warriors. Cut from the same cloth as the original Happy Warrior, Al Smith, four-time Governor of New York State, and the first Catholic nominated by one of the two major parties for President of the United States.

So, Joe isn’t in that category. And, we’re in a different time, Covid Time. But for Pete’s sake, take the mask off when you speak and they’re eight people in the room and the nearest one is 37 feet away.

I read the polls daily, so I know that Joe is the favorite. But I don’t like the feeling I have in the pit of my stomach where all true wisdom abides. I don’t like the fact that Joe hasn’t put Pennsylvania away. C’mon man, it’s almost your home state. Obama won it twice, easy. He even picked up votes from folks who “knew” he was a Muslim born in Kenya but had “a nice family” so they threw him a few votes anyway.

There’s a piece up in the New York Times today by Thomas B Edsall, a serious guy who puts some meat on the bones of my paranoia. (Remember, paranoid people can have enemies.) Below are the comments I filed on Edsall‘s piece: Continue Reading……

Worshiping Republican Jesus at OLG in the Bay…….

They call election time the silly season for a reason. My own opinion is Mike is one of the Pharisee Hypocrites that Classic Jesus warns everyone about in the good book. In these polarizing times I’m sure there are those that would beg to differ.

My Dad was a very simple man in respects who did not have a high school diploma but he came up in a much different time joining the Marines at age 16 during the Second World War. On his deathbed he explained why he had two ministers coming in to check on him one being a Marine Corps Chaplin that would later officiate his funeral. “Never trust a preacher that sells more than salvation” he explained to me why he wanted the Marine Corps Chaplin instead of his family’s Baptist minister. That piece of wisdom has stuck with me ever since.

The reasons for the decline in U.S. Catholicism and Christianity can be traced.

Trump Tax Returns Strongly Suggest Illegal Activity

First let me get this out of the way. I’m not trying to change any minds about the upcoming election. One way or another the piper will be paid and there is nothing any of us can do to affect it which leads to the second thing we need to clear up in advance. If you are a sucker, dupe, a financial moron or otherwise an imbecile I’m not going to tolerate Facebook quality comments from people that barely passed high school who in February were all shithouse MPHs before graduating to become shithouse epidemiologists. That kind of ignorance can stay on Facebook. Slabbed has been following the money for 13 years because money doesn’t lie, unlike sociopaths or useful idiots to sociopaths.

Let’s start as it unfolded on the Slabbed twitter account because it was there I first revealed my thoughts:

The early reporting failed to answer the most basic question anyone could ask, “How was Trump funding those losses?”. There is no such thing as a money tree or Santa Claus and the IRS does not allow hypothetical losses against income. Having prepared taxes for over 30 years the only businesses I’ve witnessed posting losses year after year all ended up in bankruptcy or otherwise insolvent and closed. Its a simple economic fact of life but there is more here because Trump doesn’t just live, he lives large and in charge paying hookers hundreds of thousands more than he does in taxes so something else has to be in the equation. Luckily for everyone there are some very sharp people on Twitter.

Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: A War if Trump Wants One

Posted on September 24, 2020

Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson have a war all teed up for President Trump if he thinks he needs a war to win re-election. Timing is elegant. Iran is available. Use the Debate Sept 29 to take command of the stage. Remind us of your love for Israel. Commence hostilities first or second week of October.

Bye Bye Biden. Everybody knows a President gets a bump in the polls when our troops are at risk. Whether its a legitimate use of force, well now you’re being technical. Our President has an election to win. Nobody likes Iran anyway so its a win, win, win. Do you think Adelson came in $35 Mil strong in the last week of 2016, and gave five times more than the next largest giver to the Trump Inaugural Committee because he’s a flower child and, like Rodney King, just wants us “all to get along.” C’mon, man, you don’t go into the Casino business because you want to give someone a fair shot.

Netanyahu has experience sending the USA to war. Here he is, as a private Israeli citizen, between his first and second term as Israeli Prime Minister lecturing a compliant committee of our Congress on the duty of the United States to go to war with Iraq because in Netanyahu’s words “there was absolutely no doubt” that Saddam had weapons that, as it turned out, he didn’t have.
