http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Wall Street saw a stock selloff Thursday after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted he may retire, causing stock investors to panic and run. Merrill Lynch quickly adjusted its investment portfolio. They now hold fifty percent cash and fifty percent canned goods.

The White House released a health study that stunned the drug world Thursday. The study said seventy percent of Americans are taking prescription drugs. It's a testament to the power of a celebrity endorsement that people still take Michael Jackson's word for it.

Scarlett Johansson is under consideration to play young Hillary Clinton in the movie Rodham. Already there's controversy. For Scarlett Johansson to play Hillary Clinton is so flattering to her that the FEC just ruled the rumor to be an illegal campaign contribution.

Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State was questioned after charges surfaced she covered up sex and drug scandals at U.S. embassies. It won't hurt her. Hillary clearly is on her way to fulfilling her and Bill's lifetime dream of being a two-impeachment family.

USA Today reported the U.S. and Britain jointly share NSA intelligence which is stored in Utah and England. There's no fun left in spying. The next James Bond movie is called The Spy Who Loved Me While Staring at a List of Phone Numbers and Looking for a Pattern.

Time Warner cable suffered a blackout in Hollywood and Beverly Hills Thursday for four hours. Everyone in show business was without Internet service. The streets were a lot safer with drivers talking on their cell phones instead of watching their latest TV pilot.

The FBI announced Thursday it's abandoning its search for Jimmy Hoffa after agents acted on a tip and spent all week digging up a back yard in Michigan. Federal agents have no idea how to track him down. He hasn't made a one phone call in thirty-eight years.

Food Network's Paula Deen admitted she uses the N-word when she's joking around and she also said she once suggested that the black waiters dress like house slaves. There's an explanation. She was plugging her brand new book, Cooking with Richard Pryor.

The Ku Klux Klan tipped off the FBI and foiled a plot to attack President Obama with an X-ray device. The pundits were amazed that this president was saved by the Klan. It was seen as an endorsement of Barack Obama's go-slow approach in pushing civil rights.

New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was suspected of murder Tuesday after police questioned him.. He handed cops his smashed up cell phone. No one knows if he's guilty or not, but Fred Goldman has already showed up with a truck to take the piano.

The U.S. Senate neared agreement on an Immigration Bill on Thursday. Resistence to illegal immigration is fierce. If you call the governor's office in Arizona, the recorded message tells you to press one for English, press two for English, and press three for English.

The Tea Party had a big rally at the Capitol building in Washington D.C. on Wednesday demanding lower taxes and a smaller government. There were thousands of them. The IRS nearly launched a drone just to cut down on the manpower needed to audit them all.

President Obama got a lecture from German Chancellor Angela Merkel Wednesday after it was revealed that the NSA is spying on Germans. Her confrontationn is a sign that we've hit bottom. You know that it's time to get help when the country that brought us the Gestapo stages an intervention and tells you that your surveillance is out of control.
