The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Mexican cocaine cartel kingpin Joaquin Guzman, whose nickname is El Chapo, escaped from a maximum security Mexican prison on Sunday and is currently on the loose. Now the excitement begins. If Joaquin Guzman can make it to San Francisco, Donald Trump is the next president of the United States.

Mexican authorities were embarrassed Monday over Joaquin Guzman's ability to dig a tunnel from the prison shower to a construction site an entire mile away. Engineers marveled at how quietly he got the digging done. If Joaquin Guzman ever goes straight, he could have a great career in fracking.

Joaquin Guzman amused political pundits Monday by immediately tweeting his anger at Donald Trump for his anti-Mexican remarks and threatened to go after the GOP presidential frontrunner. That could bring in the Secret Service. Secret Service agents are well aware of Joaquin Guzman, he's catered their last four parties south of the border.

Mexico drug lord Joaquin El Chapo Guzman escaped from prison and went into a war of words with Donald Trump on Twitter and threatened to kill the GOP candidate. The contest amazed the pollsters. It's the first time in history that fifty-six percent of Americans sided with a Mexican drug lord.

Mexico authorities Monday showed the tunnel that cocaine kingpin Joaquin El Chapo Guzman dug for one year to escape from prison. The tunnel was one mile long, six feet high, reinforced with concrete and equipped with lighting. It's amazing how much energy that white stuff can give you.

Mexico posted a four million dollar reward for information leading to the capture of the escaped drug lord Joaquin El Chapo Guzman. He's not beyond redemption. John Kerry just offered El Chapo nuclear weapons in fifteen years if he'll allow U.N. inspectors to search the apartment he used to live in.

Donald Trump traveled to Southern California this week to meet with GOP conservatives who are also in show business. While he was in town, he went down to Palos Verdes to inspect his golf course. There were reports of gophers popping up on Trump's property but it turned out to be El Chapo.

California lawmakers proposed changing the name of schools named after Robert E. Lee while Congress may ban the sale of Southern battle flags at all Civil War battlefields. It just dawned on me that my little league baseball team was nicknamed the Confederates. Should I get shock treatments?

Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on Monday gave the U.S. military branches six months to make ready for trans-gender recruits in the armed services. We're gearing up for psychological warfare. If ISIS takes them prisoner, the terrorists won't know whether to behead them or force them into marriage.

President Obama flies to Oklahoma Thursday to visit with Choctaw Nation leaders in Durant. The word Oklahoma is Choctaw for "red people." Today it's considered so racist that the South Carolina legislature just voted to remove Rodgers and Hammerstein from every high school theater department in the state.

The House of Representatives last week moved to try to eliminate the federal government's participation and influence in public school curriculums. It makes perfect sense. Why would you want your children's math curriculum decided by the people who put the country's bank account $19 trillion in the red.

The World Health Organization warned Friday that ebola has returned to the West African nations of Liberia and Ghana after they thought it had been wiped out. The panic over the situation varies. You can't scare people in Los Angeles about ebola unless you tell us it has gluten in it.

NASA announced it will train four astronauts for a future commercial flight to Mars. They must be able to sit in one place for seven months without getting up. A hundred million qualified Americans have from the first pre-season game to the Super Bowl to prove that they have the Right Stuff.

National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to reduce the suspension for Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy from ten games to four games for hitting his girlfriend and threatening to kill her. It didn't go unnoticed. Six Baltimore police officers just asked for a change of venue to the NFL Commissioner's office.

The Treasury Department reported Monday that the U.S. government enjoyed a fifty-one billion dollar budget surplus in June. There was an obvious reason for the windfall. June was the first month in twelve years that we haven't invaded someone, plus we cut up the Secret Service credit cards.

Hillary Clinton's aides admitted Friday that they are secretly worried about Bernie Sanders and the excitement he's generating among Democrats. A new poll says sixty-four percent of voters in her own party say they aren't excited by Hillary Clinton. These people are known as Bill Clinton Democrats.

The U.S. did a deal with Iran Tuesday which left Republicans and Israel howling in protest. Iran gets a pathway to the bomb, missile purchases, fifty billion in cash unfrozen and the right to resume selling their oil. Jeb Bush could end up being the first member of his family to invade the right country.

European finance ministers met with Greek treasury officials in Brussels Monday and agreed to a tentative bailout deal to resolve the Greek debt crisis. The officials endured the longest negotiating session anyone can remember. It lasted for seventeen hours, otherwise known as the Greek work week.
