The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | • Venezuela's socialist economy fell apart on Tuesday just as newly-elected Democratic House members were urging primary candidates to back higher taxes, Medicare for all and free college. It seems every generation has to learn the same lesson. A sardine is a whale after ten years of socialism.

• Mexico's new socialist president Lopez Obrador announced he's giving his Interior Minister a free rein to consider legalizing all drugs in Mexico, including cocaine. Reaction was swift. Six Hollywood stars just vowed to leave the United States whether Trump gets re-elected or not.

• Texas Rangers pitcher Bartolo Colon set a Major League record for most number of wins by a pitcher born in Latin America. He's been around a long while. Colon also set the record for most wins by someone from Latin America who was born before it was discovered as part of the New World.

• President Trump offered to meet Iran's president Friday as Iran's economy continued sinking from the weight of U.S. sanctions. An intelligence report last week says that Iran is on the verge of a bitter civil war. That means the U.S. effort to make the Middle East more like America is working.

• The Weather Channel attributed the West Coast's blazing heat to the Santa Ana winds off the Imperial Desert. Every August desert winds make people in L.A. crazy and romantic. It's that time of year when couples like to cuddle up on the couch together, turn on the TV news, and enjoy a nice fire.

• Secretary of Defense James Mattis agreed to the Space Force and now the idea must be submitted to Congress. It's all been worked out. The first task of the Space Force will be to build a wall to keep illegal aliens from entering the Earth, and we are going to make the Klingons pay for it.

• The White House was reported working to curb legal immigration into the U.S. It's to ensure full employment. A foreign-born Muslim was just arrested in New Mexico for attempting to train kids how to stage school shootings, and another example of immigrants taking away U.S. jobs.

• The Space Force came a step closer to reality when Mike Pence got the Pentagon to sign off on a sixth branch of the military. The dangers are certain. Some Iranian could fire a pulse bomb from a satellite and knock out Twitter, making him the first Iranian to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

• Republican pundits pointed to the narrow win in Ohio as a sign there'll be no Blue Wave this fall. It never ends. Democratic pundits are all pointing to the narrow loss in Ohio as a hopeful sign that in the midterm Democrats will be able to build on that success and narrowly lose nationwide.

• The New York Times ran an editorial calling for the elimination of the Constitution saying it's anti-democratic. New York liberals need to make up their minds. In the morning, they say minorities are oppressed by the document because it was written by conservative white men, then in the evening they pay eight hundred dollars a ticket to give Hamilton a standing ovation for writing it.

• The Washington Post reports Democrats plan to attack President Trump's evolving policy on legal immigration. They claimed Trump is taking measures to try to cut back on legal immigration and reducing visa stay time for foreign visitors. Some guys will do anything to get rid of their in-laws.

• China set a twenty-five percent tariff on goods going to the U.S. including condoms. Reaction was predictable. First it was the Paris Climate Treaty, and then it was the Iran deal and then NATO, and so now, thanks to the new Chinese tariffs on condoms, Americans are all threatening to pull out.

• China vowed to make it tougher for Chinese to transfer money to the U.S. where they've been buying up L.A. properties. Things need to slow down anyway. Is it possible there's a little TOO much foreign money floating around Beverly Hills when the Mercedes dealership has a self-checkout line?

• The Wall Street Journal reported Osama bin Laden's son has gotten married to the daughter of a World Trade Center bomber. It's a real shame. For years after that attack, we wasted all the goodwill and sympathy we had by firing drone attacks against less important weddings in the Mideast.

• Paul Manafort's prosecutors say Manafort took a fortune from the Russian-backed president of Ukraine before he was overthrown four years ago. They don't want to bring up that Obama overthrew him and installed a pro-U.S. president on Russia's border. If they do, the whole case against Russia for interfering in the 2016 election might collapse, just from our Anglo-Saxon sense of fair play.
