Remember when it wasn’t ENOUGH that President Bush cut a vacation short and flew over Katrina ravaged New Orleans on his way back to the White House? How he should have BEEN there?
Good times, good times.
And it seemed like nobody was cutting short jack in Martha’s Vineyard.
Not for cities under water, not for cities on fire…
OBAMA INTERRUPTING VACATION TO CAMPAIGN FOR CLINTON
EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Golf, afternoons at the beach and … political campaigning?
President Barack Obama is interrupting what so far has been a leisurely vacation to help raise money for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee. Obama has said there’s never been anyone more qualified than Clinton, who was his rival in the 2008 presidential contest and his first-term secretary of state, to be president.
U.S. Sent Cash to Iran as Americans Were Freed Obama administration insists there was no quid pro quo, but critics charge payment amounted to ransom
The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
Do you remember what happened today many…MOONS ago?
The EAGLE FRICKIN’ LANDED
And the crowds went WILD!
How about a little song to savor the moment.
Let’s pause just for a second and revel in pure, unadulterated CONQUEST like it USED to be, when we could be PROUD of being the BEST at GOD DAMNED EVERYTHING…before the day goes to shit again, shall we?
What we seeing play out now in the Brexit post-mortem is the exact kind of over-educated, arrogant dismissal of the will of the proletariat that got them where they are. When it was all heading in REMAIN’s direction, no one really heard anything about education, income class, AGE… But now that things have gone so horribly awry for the so horribly better situated in their plans for controlling lives not their own, in an effort to delegitimize the entire process, all these patronizing denigrations of the electorate who chose LEAVE have started. When you drill down into the post-polling data, they sniff and look disgustedly Heavenward, you see UNEDUCATED (by which they mean: no sheepskin), UNWASHED, MENIAL JOBS, LOWER MIDDLE CLASS, LOVELY FILTH OVER HERE, DENNIS! Ergo, this entire process is tainted, denying the flower of UK 20 somethings the future of THEIR choice (“I’m NOT British, I’m EUROPEAN” read one sweet young thing’s sign), as these selfish, “patriotic” OLD FUCKERS who are going to DIE SOON ANYWAY indulged themselves in one last fantasy round of Rule Britannia.
As David Brooks said last night, he understood LEAVE’s anger, he just wished they’d embraced a “more cosmopolitan form of patriotism.” WTF does that even MEAN?
It’s an ageist AND uneducated themed run at…your everyday, regular Brit.
The enraged, ever-so-clevers are manipulating this momentous ROAR of a formerly mewling British lion into:
Happy Father’s Day to ALL you wonderful, incredible, ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL guys like major dad, my Daddy, my miss-him-every-day-bestest-Father-in-Law-Ever, my amazing, capable brothers like Bingley and schweetest brothers-in-law.
WHERE would the world be without fathers? We’re getting a peek right now.
Hillary deletes more than emails as the latest edition of her memoir removes all her cheerleading for controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal
*Hillary Clinton’s publisher removed a section of her memoir dealing with the Trans-Pacific Partnership from the book’s paperback version
*The controversial trade deal makes regular appearances in Donald Trump’s speeches, and Hillary Clinton was for it before she was against it
*She changed course last October when Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley clobbered her about the Obama administration’s position
*Clinton boasted in her 2014 book ‘Hard Choices’ that she had encouraged nations in the Americas to join the TPP agreement, but a paragraph about that cheerleading has disappeared from the paperback edition
*Simon & Schuster included a brief but vague acknowledgement that part of the book were zapped ‘to accommodate a shorter length’

A proposal in Malaysia’s Parliament to introduce the strict Islamic penal code known as hudud law is threatening to split the country’s government apart.
The proposed bill was introduced in parliament last Thursday by Abdul Hadi Awang, the president of the country’s opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party.
It will be debated in October and, if passed, will replace current provisions in the country’s Sharia courts — which govern Muslims — with harsher hudud punishments.
Hudud law allows for penalties such as amputation of limbs and stoning.
Of course, RATIONAL people are up in arms about the entire concept, while the mayor of Amity Island Prime Minister says “What to worry about!”
…”I would like to state that it’s not for the implementation of hudud. It’s just to give the Sharia courts enhanced punishments. From six-strokes caning to a few more,” he said, in an interview with local media.
SEE, silly wabbits? It’s just so they can whomp you a couple additional swings for perceived sins against whatever whack job Islamic edict was impinged upon at that moment/personal score had to be settled/woman had made the egregious error of getting herself raped.
As IF ANYONE in this day and age would lop off limbs or WORSE, especially if it were state sanctioned.
