The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Wisconsin has a primary today giving voters a choice between Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton for U.S. president. Those are the only choices we have left. Americans are just starting to realize we had it better when we were ruled by a mad English king.

Donald Trump traveled to Washington D.C. on Thursday to meet with the Republican National Committee. Last year they encouraged Trump to run for president and forced him to pledge to stay loyal. During the meeting, the RNC tightened the bolts in his neck and he stormed back to Wisconsin.

U.S. News and World Reportís annual survey gave eighty-six Los Angeles high schools medals for scholastic excellence last week. And now itís time to celebrate. Itís approaching prom season in Los Angeles, time for the kids to get moving and line up a date before all the hot teachers are taken.

Ken Burnsí film Jackie Robinson premieres on PBS in a two-part documentary movie Sunday night. He broke baseballís color barrier, he was a Southern Methodist, an active Republican and a speaker at Richard Nixon rallies. Apparently he enjoyed being the only black man wherever he went.

The Labor Department said unemployment was at five percent in March, not counting millions who arenít looking for work. The Puritan work ethic isnít for everybody. The welcome sign at the entrance to West Hollywood notifies visitors that You Are Now Entering a Work-Free Drug Place.

The Justice Department withdrew its demand that Apple provide an unlocking device for FBI agents to hack into suspectsí iPhones. They got an outside source to invent one. At baseballís opening day in Washington, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will be there to throw out the First Amendment.

President Obama transferred more prisoners out of Guantanamo Friday in an effort to close it down. The place has air conditioning, two soccer fields, a library, a gym, a cafeteria and six armed guard towers. Why close it down when it could be converted instantly into a Los Angeles high school?

USA Today reported Monday that a law firm in Panama leaked documents which show how top world leaders and their cronies hide billions of dollars and avoid taxes. Reaction was swift. The scheme was exposed Monday morning and by that night was added to the Republican Party platform.

Scripps Collegeís newspaper objected to Madeleine Albrightís selection as graduation speaker because sheís white. Itís insane. You can escape Hitler as a child, become Americaís first female Secretary of State and defeat Serbiaís fascist state and no longer qualify as a Democrat in California.

The National Geological Survey reported earthquakes are now as likely to strike in Oklahoma as they are California. It all works out. After trailer park homes are moved a half a block down the road by a six-point earthquake, a week later an F1 tornado can come along and move them right back.

Hillary Clinton in a speech Friday rejected water-boarding terrorists to obtain information on new plots. She said interrogations must reflect U.S. values. Those values have included conquest, slavery and atomic bombing so you would think ISIS would be happy to go with the dunk-tank option.

President Obama said Monday the vulgar language used by the GOP candidates for president damages the American brand. Itís always either vitriol or braggadocio. Donald Trump canít show you baby pictures of himself without informing you that his circumcision required twenty-six stitches.

Bernie Sanders swept three primaries in Western states on Saturday due to Bernieís appeal to college kids and liberal Democrats. His campaign has inspired a new drinking game across the U.S. Every time Bernie Sanders proposes a free government program, you drink somebody elseís beer.

Donald Trump trailed in Wisconsin after missteps with women voters last week. His troubles usually rebound to his favor. This past Monday Donald Trumpís campaign manager was arrested for assaulting a woman, automatically triggering Trumpís endorsement by the NFL Players Union.

The NBC Poll released says Donald Trump now has the support of fifty percent of the Republican voters for president nationwide. The same poll shows fifty percent of Republican voters refuse to support Trump for president. In other words heís carrying all the men and none of the wives.

CNN gave the GOP presidential candidates one hour each before a town hall in Wisconsin.. It gave each candidate a chance to extol his lifeís story, his virtues and his plans to rule the world. Itís never a good idea to televise Narcissists Anonymous meetings. It just feeds the disease.

New York protesters vowed to disrupt any Donald Trump rallies in Manhattan this month. Itís mostly Black Lives Matter protesters calling for social justice. Republicans could always get even by interrupting Hillary Clintonís rallies with white protesters calling for a return to reachable par-fours.

An American Airlines pilot in Detroit was arrested before takeoff for drinking Monday. The same day, an American Airlines flight attendant was arrested for smuggling cocaine. That AA pin on their lapels made passengers feel so safe and then they found out it stands for American Airlines.
