      Great tweet, meta. Adelson is encouraged and supported by other well-known enemies of decency and PBO, such as Michael Bloomberg.

      Elie Weisel is a big Adelson fan also and although I respect his horrific wartime experiences and the sensational books he wrote, Mr. Weisel, in recent years has appeared to have lost his marbles. First with his dear friend Bernie Madoff, a bad judge of character which cost him plenty and now with the awful Sheldon Adelson.

    Estonia’s governing Reform Party has claimed victory in an election overshadowed by security concerns sparked by Russia’s role in Ukraine.

    Prime Minister Taavi Roivas, whose party has 30 seats, is set to form a coalition in the 101-member parliament.

    The results are a blow to the Centre Party, which has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who were expected to do well in the poll.

    Estonia was once part of the former Soviet Union but is now a Nato member.

    n the run up to the election, Mr Roivas had called for an “Estonian-minded government”. At 35, he is the youngest prime minister in Europe.

    The country’s political debate has been dominated by economic issues and fears over defence due to Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

        pretty sure that’s what they are working up to, amk. And, after all, being born in the USA, BiBobuttkiss is a viable candidate. Now, if this pans out, surely even the sworn madmen among the rightey-whiteys will recognize all is lost. (tho I do believe he has to have a certain amount of recent residency to be considered) (but, hey, it’s all about throwing all the rules out the damn window anymore..)

    Million thanks NW – good to see CNN advising people on ways to avoid tax – and associated audit – one would think they want the thriving economy to go bankrupt. I’m thinking they’ll spin a different tune in 2017.

    I don’t know what this means—maybe not much—-but apparently now Bibi’s ask is for a delay in Iran deal. Previously he was for stopping deal entirely.

    In any case, see you all in a day or two.

    This Bibi speech nonsense seems more and more as an election stunt for Israeli audience. The request for $300 million is to show his home audience that he can still bring home the bacon. It is certainly not designed to endear himself to the American people. Boner, the orchestrator of this bullshit is already in a clown suit, and Bibi will join him. His hubris will force him to make a fool of himself, he will oversell his argument. I am interested to hear how Kerry will “defend” Israel in his UN speech. PBO and his team are smart and calculating. I have never doubted my President and I won’t start now. I do see this as a net positive because I think it will have the long term effect of loosening the relationship with Israel, which has been decidedly one sided for far too long. PBO has long want to pivot away from the middle east and to Asia, this “loosening” will accelerate that move.

      Eric, this is a great insight into what’s going on. The timing of the “speech” was always about Bibi’s own election since everything in the world revolves around himself. And yes, I believe our president has many plans for Asian pivot and will use this blunder by Boehner and Bibi to support his vision.

    Uruguay bids farewell to Jose Mujica, its pauper president.

    There are idealistic, hard-working and honest politicians the world over – although cynics might argue they’re a small minority – but none of them surely comes anywhere close to the outgoing Uruguayan president when it comes to living by one’s principles.

    It’s not just for show. Mujica’s beat-up old VW Beetle is probably one of the most famous cars in the world and his decision to forgo the luxury of the Presidential Palace is not unique – his successor, Tabare Vasquez, will also probably elect to live at home.

    But when you visit “Pepe” at his tiny, one-storey home on the outskirts of Montevideo you realise that the man is as good as his word.

    Uruguay is often referred to as the most liberal country in South America. As economic and political turmoil threaten to engulf the neighbouring giants of Brazil and Argentina, this country of just three million people certainly feels like a refuge.

    Mujica leaves office with a relatively healthy economy and with social stability those bigger neighbours could only dream of.

    Mujica’s underlying principles are still socialist but he’s a man who has mellowed with age. Some of the most controversial political initiatives from his five years as president – like the legalisation of abortion and cannabis – were done for pragmatic as much as ideological reasons.

    GE TODville.

    Wanted to let y’all know that it hailed here (Ventura County CA) this afternoon, at the time of day that is so popular with hipsters. It melted almost immediately, though.

    The last time it hailed here (that I’m aware of) was over 20 years ago — I distinctly remember rushing outside when I heard it against the windows where I worked.

    Weather.com predicts thunder and t-storms this evening — last time I heard thunder was about that long ago, or longer.

    March comin’ in like a lion, y’all.

    Meta,

    Glad to see that you follow the goings on in NM — a state to keep an eye on, since @RepBenRayLujan is the up-and-coming DCCC chairman. Plus, we need to know what @MartinHeinrich is up to as well. 😉

    Looks like Ben Ray’s cousin is going to make her mark on national events, though unfortunately, this is the same day as Bibi’s speech to Congress, and that will suck the oxygen out of political news (MSM only able to unanimously “report” on one thing at a time).

      Thanks Bob for sharing Ben Yishai’s letter to Netanyahu. It was excellent. Our so called mainstream media have done a poor job of informing the U.S. public about Israelis, like Mr. Yishai, who oppose Netanyahu’s ill-conceived speech, which is aimed at undermining and disrespecting the foreign policy of a sitting President of the United States. Right now I am so mad with the Democrats in Congress who are going to legitimize the disrespect of the President by a foreign leader who is being aided and abetted by right wing political opponents of President Obama.
