TSB: May the 'POWER' be with you!
I am trusting that too much tv time watching Hillary bore tiny rooms of head nodding supporters will 'snowball' fast and I hope she keeps wearing those ridiculous outfits. gwb

TSB: With all due respect to Jusctice Scalia I think it is a riot watching all these politicians who said we must win this election or the democrats will control the Court for the rest of our lifetime! Now we don't need to elect Hillary and Obama will have the legacy he always wanted! Go Bernie..He would probably appoint Ron Paul to the Court! gwb

TSB: I'm glad I got to see most of that 'debate' because the whole pundit team at Fox thought everyone did well tonite except Trump. They never mention online polls where Trump clearly ran away with it. Same for the Bernie/Hillary one. gwb

Bush Nominates White House Counsel Harriet Miers To Supreme Court
President's former personal lawyer has no experience as a judge. gwb 10/3/2005

(Remember when they kept her under wraps for a month while they tried to get her up to speed on what the Supreme Court is? There has to be some great Dick Cheney quotes on that somewhere.)

TSB: BTW, George W and Laura were at courtside last night watching SMU vanquish my Gonzaga Bulldogs in one of the best games of the season. Much better than the debate. gwb

TSB: Those who said Saudi Arabia will not go down without a fight in Syria seem to have had it right. With EVERY presidential candidate solidly behind the concept (except for the 'no US boots involved part) WWIII seems to be starting just like the last 2 with a really phony 'halt in hostilities' engineered by John "Do you want me to declare war on the russians?" F Kerry. (I love the JFK association with Cuba since we have Rubio and Cruz cheering this one on.)

This is going to be really exciting and fun to see how well the dogfights go and whether the tanks can handle the russian weapons. The Iranians just shipped their first load of oil this weekend to europe so there will probably be some tankers sunk in the gulf. Even though this looks like an attempt to recreate our victory against Saddam Hussein I am going with the the fact that we haven't had a proxy victory since then and betting on Putin, Assad, Iran and the Chi-Coms. And I think it will sink Hillary. gwb

TSB: regarding: So then, it's always Presidents Day in ... That is a good point about George Washington's birthday. I was watching the big GWB event today in SC and nobody ever mentioned it! And Bill was somewhere, Chesea in Reno talking to an empty room and Hillary somewhere else barking like a dog. It may be a day for amnesia but I never saw anything but this Turkmenistan tweet to remind me to go shopping! Thanks again TSB! What would I do without you? PS: My neighbor across the street had an emergency pacemaker put in yesterday so my main news source was off line so to speak. Also it's my wife's birthday and her 'what's APP' isn't updating whatever that is? Did I mention calling the police and the telephone repair guy? gwb

TSB: Best thing so far in this election season is that the 'real issues' have been brought out from the get go and the candidates who have the whole crooked system behind them have had to rewrite their talking points and styles weekly. Even the massive Right and Left TV talkers appear to be frantically useless trying to avoid all the landmines of the rigged system.

1. The system is rigged with Hillary leading despite getting killed on the trail and at the ballot box. (We are never going to see the raw vote count in Iowa! The voting machines approved for all 50 states and voters lists are all digital. There is no way to verify results or have a recount. The death of Scalia was sent from God because by election time everyone will realize you can win the election and still lose it to the Supremes! And OHIO will be a massive mess this time because the allocation of voting outlets biased against black people. Sorry folks! We close at 7! Trump should ask Kasich about that.
2. Obama ruined the fund raiser: Now every time Hillary goes to one she takes a hit like: "It sure is good to be away from Iowa for awhile!" The press would gladly not talk about it but Bernie and Donald aren't playing by the rules!

3. Bernie is going to kill Hillary with his instant ground game everywhere. A week ago I told a handicapped person who is great on computers and phones but can't work outside the home about it and she's already dying to start organizing doornockers. There are a lot of 30 something unemployeds looking to be useful. ok.. time to get back to work. Have a great day! gwb

TSB: Watching Ryan Crocker and the Atlantic Council on "The Future of Iraq". It's not much about the future but mostly the past.
But 40% of the population is now under age 15 and if you aren't from the right tribe you aren't going to school. (A questioner noticed that the subject of youth and education had not been addressed in this 'TASK FORCE'S PLAN'.)

The crowd is the DC foreign policy crowd of 99% old men who are finding their many years of experience all of a sudden despised. The current Sunni countries role was just brought up by a Kurdish diplomat but this thing is almost over and there has been no mention of it to this point. This audience is so politically correct it looks to me like the mention of Saudi Arabia could cost them all their jobs? Good luck to them all! gwb

TSB: Jeb and Hillary are both having trouble getting traction with the voters. The problem for both of them is clearly a lack of music that captures the essence of their campaigns. I think either of them could use this one. Hillary tried that ELLEN thing but she needs something different for South Carolina and Vegas. Jeb just needs something upbeat that doesn't seem like a bar fight. gwb

TSB: There seems to be no argument to the idea that we need to eliminate the $100 bill to stop terrorism and crime. Germany, EU, In his op-ed, Summers refers to a new Harvard research paper entitled: “Making it Harder for the Bad Guys: The Case for Eliminating High Denomination Notes”...When they eliminate the C Note and your bank is charging you -2% interest you will have a new President who was never even asked about it! On the bright side, if someone thinks you may have committed a crime they won't have to haul you off to jail... just seize your bank account! gwb

GWB: I wish I'd seen Amb. Crocker on the future of Iraq. Does he see U.S. forces still in Iraq for years to come? I hope not.

TSB: The best I could tell he thinks it's a pretty hopeless fight over oil with the Kurds, Shia,Sunni,ISIS, Turkey,Iran,SA and the GCC. So we are stuck in the sandtrap and we are going to have to work something out with the Russkies and the Chi-Coms who just completed their first rail run to Tehran 2 days ago. Hi speed rail to follow by 2020 and gas pipeline too.

The refugee crisis is the worst part for him. He blames Obama for avoiding the 2011 chance to do something about Syria and Iraq with the Russians...then Ukraine and Afghanistan went south.. military contracting, hanging on way to long with Maliki, White House micro-management. In other words: YEAH, MILITARY WILL BE THERE FOR YEARS TO COME SUPPORTING WHOEVER WILL SUPPLY SUNNI FIGHTERS. gwb

TSB: Whoever is running for President after the conventions better not be one of those 'bought and paid for' types because: Dale Dorsey isn’t happy.

After working 33 years, he’s facing a 55% cut to his pension benefits, a blow which he says will “cripple” his family and imperil the livelihood of his two children, one of whom is in the fourth grade and one of whom is just entering high school. -snip- the Central States Pension Fund, which covers 400,000 participants, and which will almost certainly go broke within the next decade.

“A controversial 2014 law allowed the pension to propose [deep] cuts, many of them by half or more, as a way to perhaps save the fund,” The Kansas City Star wrote earlier this week adding that “two much smaller pensions also have sought similar relief under the law, and still more pensions are significantly underfunded.” (So the 'representatives' of both parties allowed your state governments to fill holes in their budgets for years by not funding your pensions and then they offer you 50 cents on the dollar. Maybe they need replacing?)

"[The] average pension loss was more than $1,400 a month," the paper says. GM's pension fund is short $10.4 billion and it's going to be the whole country taking cuts like this over the next few years. I saw a woman last weekend who has worked all her life... her husband too. He died suddenly in 2011, wiped out their savings making his terminal diagnosis and now she is living on $117 a month food stamps a month. gwb Don't expect this to come up in the 'TOWN HALL INTERVIEWS'.

TSB: I know what yer thinking. Do I have a plan for these midwest pensioners? You Bet!! Collective farming! They are even going back to it in Russia! gwb

Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov said that Russia can feed not only Russians, but also 500 million people. To ensure food security in the country, the authorities should take more effort to develop collective farms, Zyuganov said at the economic forum in the city of Orel. - See more at: http://www.pravdareport.com/russia/economics/12-02-2016/133323-russia_wto-0/#sthash.PGa86wFF.dpuf (Support your local Committee!)
