It Had Nothing to Do With Being Insane

…or possibly shitty parenting, or any combination of the two, right? And it’s a well known fact that of crazy homicidal people can’t GET guns, they’ll never kill anyone.

Ian Mercer, Oregon shooter’s dad: ‘That’s what guns are, the killers’

The father of Oregon gunman Christopher Harper-Mercer argued Saturday that his son never would have killed nine people last week at Umpqua Community College if he wasn’t able to get his hands on a gun in the first place.

“How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?” Ian Mercer asked in an interview outside his California home Saturday, CNN reported.

Shameful Demagogues and Lying Liars

You know what the problem is? FREE voter IDs are available at EVERY SINGLE COUNTY REGISTRAR’S OFFICE IN THE STATE.

…Friday, Hillary Clinton joined a growing nationwide chorus criticizing Alabama for closing driver’s license offices in the state’s poorest, blackest, and most Democratic counties.

In a statement Clinton called it quote “a blast from the Jim Crow past.”

…Mobile County Probate Judge Don Davis disagrees.

“In Alabama there are many different acceptable forms of photo ID,” said Davis.\

He says 90-percent of voters in Mobile County use a driver’s license but there are many other options.

“IDs issued by either the federal government or some agency of department of federal government, indian tribes, a public university or college, other government entities,” Davis said.

For those with none of the above, Alabama also issues a state voter ID card, and not through its driver’s license offices.

“The free voter ID card is actually issued through our boards of registrars,” said Albert Lipscomb who serves on the Baldwin County Board of Registrars. “And every county has a board of registrars.”

You never got them from the driver’s license office to begin with.

Not to mention the fact that the state accepts about 7+ different types of ID at the polls, besides the voter ID. Negating the whole meme.


Jim Crow.

I Know Enough Not to Hold My Breath

I’ve waited all day for this President to talk about the hate crime that was this massacre.

I’ve waited all day for Mr. Can’t Get to a Microphone Fast Enough to express his outrageous outrage at these poor people being slaughtered simply for their faith.

I have waited all day for President the Police Acted Stupidly to vociferously condemn the racist hater who pulled the trigger over and over again, executing each soul based purely on their “Christian” answer.

I’ve waited to hear him call it a hate crime, period, considering his Charleston statement: “…And we know that hatred across races and faiths pose a particular threat to our democracy and our ideals.” Yes, Mr. President. But the flow “across the races and faiths” doesn’t only go one way.

And I’m sure I’ll be waiting to hear him warble Amazing Grace at the memorial service for white Christians martyred by a black shooter.

Sure, right? I’ve been waiting for him to remember he’s the president of ALL of us for quite a while.

Senators press rail nominee on experience, automated trains

Senators pressed President Obama’s choice to run the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) on Thursday on her lack of prior experience in the industry and her insistence on enforcing a December deadline for automating trains.

In the spring, Obama tapped Sarah Feinberg, who has been leading the FRA since January, for a full-time term atop the rail agency, which requires Senate confirmation.

Prior to assuming the role of FRA chief, Feinberg served as Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx’s chief of staff, making her a non-traditional choice to oversee the nation’s railroad industry at a time when multiple passenger and freight-train accidents have raised questions about safety.

…Feinberg took over the FRA after the retirement of Joseph Szabo, a career railroader who resigned from the agency in 2014. Prior to assuming the role of FRA chief, Feinberg served in roles at the White House and Facebook.



I guess that makes me an expert on anything I want to be, too, eh?

Migrant talks in Prague amid EU quota dispute

BERLIN — Central European foreign ministers in Prague on Friday rejected a compulsory resettlement plan for refugees proposed by the European Union.

The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary said the proposal unveiled by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday would not solve the problem of thousands of people attempting to relocate to Europe.

“The first and most important task is to gain control over the outer border of the European Union,”Peter Szijjarto, Hungary’s Foreign Minister, said.

The EU’s idea is to redistribute 160,000 refugees — the majority of them Syrians — among 22 of the EU’s 28 member states.

…Milos Zeman, president of the Czech Republic, says his country will take 1,500 refugees, but he has also cautioned that asylum-seekers may bring terrorism and infectious diseases.

He told the Czech tabloid Blesk that refugees should be told three things when they arrive in the country.

The first one: Nobody invited you. The second one: When you’re already here, you have to respect our rules as we respect your rules when we arrive in your country. The third one: if you don’t like it, get out of here.

When Opposing the Dictates of Our Imperial Overlord

Migrants in the Balkans: Everyone wants to be Syrian

HAJDUKOVO, Serbia (AP) — A Pakistani identity card in the bushes, a Bangladeshi one in a cornfield. A torn Iraqi driver’s license bearing the photo of a man with a Saddam-style mustache, another one with a scarfed woman displaying a shy smile.

Documents scattered only meters from Serbia’s border with Hungary provide evidence that many of the migrants flooding Europe to escape war or poverty are scrapping their true nationalities and likely assuming new ones, just as they enter the European Union.

Many of those travelers believe that using a fake document — or having none at all — gives them a better of chance of receiving asylum in Germany and other western European states. That’s because the surest route to asylum is to be a refugee from war and not an economic migrant fleeing poverty. That fact has led to a huge influx of people claiming to be Syrian.

Serbian border police say that 90 percent of those arriving from Macedonia, some 3,000 a day, claim they are Syrian, although they have no documents to prove it. The so-called Balkan corridor for the migrant flight starts in Turkey, then goes through Macedonia and Serbia before entering the European Union in Hungary.

“You can see that something is fishy when most of those who cross into Serbia enter January first as the date of their birth,” said border police officer Miroslav Jovic. “Guess that’s the first date that comes to their mind.”

The chief of the European Union border agency Frontex said that trafficking in fake Syrian passports has increased.

“A lot of people enter Turkey with fake Syrian papers, because they know that they’ll get asylum in the EU more easily,” Fabrice Leggeri said.

Thank GOD they’re keeping all those 75% male, potential terrorist, screening nightmare types over THER…wait.

I hope I’m reading this right. TEN THOUSAND SYRIANS IN 2016 are going to the White House.


That’s okay, then.

Feds Have A Sense Of Huma

Unfortunately proving once again that it is our ‘justice’ system that is the joke

Huma Abedin, also known as Mrs. Anthony Weiner, is a close confidant and aide of Hillary Clinton.

Really close. Hillary’s minder, scheduler, gatekeeper, among other things.

And Huma apparently didn’t notice that the government paid her more than she was due, resulting in a federal embezzlement investigation.

…But, don’t fret about Huma. The feds cut her a break:

The FBI was first alerted that the IG was conducting a “criminal investigation” of Ms. Abedin in a memo dated Oct. 22, 2013, the records show.

After 15 months of extensive document-gathering and interviews, the IG submitted the case for review by the Justice Department public integrity division, which declined to prosecute Ms. Abedin. The “alleged violations” cited were improperly requesting and approving annual leave and “embezzlement,” the documents state.

“The case was not declined based on the merits of the investigation,” stated the final investigative report, dated Jan. 26.

Such a designation usually means federal prosecutors decided not to pursue a case, but only because they didn’t think it worth the resources, not because the facts and evidence couldn’t support a case.


They’re for the Little People.

Another Stroke of the Pen

…another bit of history changed to suit His Imperial Majesty’s whims.

Clinton, Inc

Of which the State Department became damn near a branch, ‘natch.

ABC News has obtained State Department e-mails that shed light on Bill Clinton’s lucrative speaking engagements and show he and the Clinton Foundation tried to get approval for invitations related to two of the most repressive countries in the world — North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

While Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, Bill Clinton earned speaking fees around the globe totaling more than $48 million — speeches that had to be vetted by the State Department to ensure there were no conflicts of interest with his wife’s work as America’s top diplomat. These newly revealed emails show speech requests that the State Department refused to approve.

The emails — which have come to light because of a public records request by the conservative group Citizens United, which sued the State Department to get the documents — show just how far Bill Clinton was willing to go to earn those lucrative fees — seeking approval for appearances with ties to two of the most brutal countries in the world.

I’ll bet he’s drooling like a rabid dog at what he can do from the White house, without all the fussy interference from another administration.

I’m Proud Of Senator Menendez

We disagree on damn near everything but by GOD he puts America first

“The issue before the Congress in September is whether to vote to approve or disapprove the agreement struck by the President and our P5+1 partners with Iran. This is one of the most serious national security, nuclear nonproliferation, arms control issues of our time. It is not an issue of supporting or opposing the President. This issue is much greater and graver than that.

“For me, I have come to my decision after countless hours in hearings, classified briefings, and hours-and-hours of serious discussion and thorough analysis. I start my analysis with the question: Why does Iran — which has the world’s fourth largest proven oil reserves, with 157 billion barrels of crude oil and the world’s second largest proven natural gas reserves with 1,193 trillion cubic feet of natural gas — need nuclear power for domestic energy?

“We know that despite the fact that Iran claims their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, they have violated the international will, as expressed by various U.N. Security Council Resolutions, and by deceit, deception and delay advanced their program to the point of being a threshold nuclear state. It is because of these facts, and the fact that the world believes that Iran was weaponizing its nuclear program at the Parchin Military Base — as well as developing a covert uranium enrichment facility in Fordow, built deep inside of a mountain, raising serious doubts about the peaceful nature of their civilian program, and their sponsorship of state terrorism — that the world united against Iran’s nuclear program.

“In that context, let’s remind ourselves of the stated purpose of our negotiations with Iran: Simply put, it was to dismantle all — or significant parts — of Iran’s illicit nuclear infrastructure to ensure that it would not have nuclear weapons capability at any time. Not shrink its infrastructure. Not limit it. But fully dismantle Iran’s nuclear weapons capability.

“We said we would accommodate Iran’s practical national needs, but not leave the region — and the world — facing the threat of a nuclear armed Iran at a time of its choosing. In essence, we thought the agreement would be roll-back-for-roll-back: you roll-back your infrastructure and we’ll roll-back our sanctions.

“At the end of the day, what we appear to have is a roll-back of sanctions and Iran only limiting its capability, but not dismantling it or rolling it back. What do we get? We get an alarm bell should they decide to violate their commitments, and a system for inspections to verify their compliance. That, in my view, is a far cry from ‘dismantling.’

“I recall in the early days of the Administration’s overtures to Iran, asking Secretary of State, John Kerry, at a meeting of Senators, about dismantling Arak, Iran’s plutonium reactor. His response was swift and certain. He said: ‘They will either dismantle it or we will destroy it.’

“I remember that our understanding was that the Fordow facility was to be closed – that it was not necessary for a peaceful civilian nuclear program to have an underground enrichment facility. That the Iranians would have to come absolutely clean about their weaponization activities at Parchin and agree to promise anytime anywhere inspections.

“We now know all of that fell by the wayside. But what we cannot dismiss is that we have now abandoned our long-held policy of preventing nuclear proliferation and are now embarked – not on preventing nuclear proliferation – but on managing or containing it — which leaves us with a far less desirable, less secure, and less certain world order. So, I am deeply concerned that this is a significant shift in our nonproliferation policy, and about what it will mean in terms of a potential arms race in an already dangerous region.

“While I have many specific concerns about this agreement, my overarching concern is that it requires no dismantling of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and only mothballs that infrastructure for 10 years. Not even one centrifuge will be destroyed under this agreement. Fordow will be repurposed, and Arak redesigned.

“The fact is — everyone needs to understand what this agreement does and does not do so that they can determine whether providing Iran permanent relief in exchange for short-term promises is a fair trade.

“This deal does not require Iran to destroy or fully decommission a single uranium enrichment centrifuge. In fact, over half of Iran’s currently operating centrifuges will continue to spin at its Natanz facility. The remainder, including more than 5,000 operating centrifuges and nearly 10,000 not yet functioning, will merely be disconnected and transferred to another hall at Natanz, where they could be quickly reinstalled to enrich uranium.

“And yet we, along with our allies, have agreed to lift the sanctions and allow billions of dollars to flow back into Iran’s economy. We lift sanctions, but — even during the first 10 years of the agreement — Iran will be allowed to continue R&D activity on a range of centrifuges – allowing them to improve their effectiveness over the course of the agreement.

“Clearly, the question is: What do we get from this agreement in terms of what we originally sought? We lift sanctions, and — at year eight — Iran can actually start manufacturing and testing advanced IR-6 and IR-8 centrifuges that enrich up to 15 times the speed of its current models. At year 15, Iran can start enriching uranium beyond 3.67 percent – the level at which we become concerned about fissile material for a bomb. At year 15, Iran will have NO limits on its uranium stockpile.

“This deal grants Iran permanent sanctions relief in exchange for only temporary – temporary — limitations on its nuclear program – not a rolling-back, not dismantlement, but temporary limitations. At year ten, the UN Security Council Resolution will disappear along with the dispute resolution mechanism needed to snapback UN sanctions and the 24-day mandatory access provision for suspicious sites in Iran.

“The deal enshrines for Iran, and in fact commits the international community to assisting Iran in developing an industrial-scale nuclear power program, complete with industrial scale enrichment. While I understand that this program will be subject to Iran’s obligations under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, I think it fails to appreciate Iran’s history of deception in its nuclear program and its violations of the NPT.

“It will, in the long run, make it much harder to demonstrate that Iran’s program is not in fact being used for peaceful purposes because Iran will have legitimate reasons to have advanced centrifuges and a robust enrichment program. We will then have to demonstrate that its intention is dual-use and not justified by its industrial nuclear power program.

…“For me, the administration’s willingness to forgo a critical element of Iran’s weaponization — past and present — is inexplicable. Our willingness to accept this process on Parchin is only exacerbated by the inability to obtain anytime, anywhere inspections, which the Administration always held out as one of those essential elements we would insist on and could rely on in any deal. Instead, we have a dispute resolution mechanism that shifts the burden of proof to the U.S. and its partners, to provide sensitive intelligence, possibly revealing our sources and the methods by which we collected the information and allow the Iranians to delay access for nearly a month, a delay that would allow them to remove evidence of a violation, particularly when it comes to centrifuge research-and-development, and weaponization efforts that can be easily hidden and would leave little or no signatures.

“The Administration suggests that — other than Iraq — no country was subjected to anytime, anywhere inspections. But Iran’s defiance of the world’s position, as recognized in a series of U.N. Security Council Resolutions, does not make it ‘any other country.’ It is their violations of the NPT and the Security Council Resolutions that created the necessity for a unique regime and for anytime, anywhere inspections.

…“President Obama continues to erroneously say that this agreement permanently stops Iran from having a nuclear bomb. Let’s be clear, what the agreement does is to recommit Iran not to pursue a nuclear bomb, a promise they have already violated in the past. It recommits them to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), an agreement they have already violated in the past. It commits them to a new Security Council Resolution outlining their obligations, but they have violated those in the past as well.

…“I have looked into my own soul and my devotion to principle may once again lead me to an unpopular course, but if Iran is to acquire a nuclear bomb, it will not have my name on it.

“It is for these reasons that I will vote to disapprove the agreement and, if called upon, would vote to override a veto.

I know I excerpted a lot but read the whole thing; it really is a matter of life or death for millions.

Oh hey, and about the whole “robust inspection’ thingy that Obama and Lurch keep touting as the reason we can be confident that Our Betters in the White House have made such a good deal here…um, well it seems that in the spirit of “You Have To Pass It To Know What’s In It” one of these Secret Side Deals allows the Iranians to inspect themselves.

Let that sink in.

So Senator Menendez, I am proud to say that you are my Senator.

You’ve got balls

Oh, and expect a call from the IRS.

FYI: There’s ALREADY a NON-Denominational Chapel at the Airport

…with prayer rugs available. NOT good enough, ‘twould seem.

OIA to open Muslim prayer room
Emirates Airlines will begin flying from OIA

Orlando International Airport will soon open a Muslim prayer room.

…Currently at OIA, many Muslims pray in public or even in restrooms.

There is also a non-denomination chapel where prayer rugs are available.

Lemme get this straight. You HAVE a room available to pray, WITH your prayer rugs, but I guess it’s NOT GOOD ENOUGH, so you have to pray…in the BATHROOM?

I will have to see who forked over the $250K to erect this monstrosity, but the fact of the matter is, it’s on PUBLIC PROPERTY, where there was already a perfectly adequate, INCLUSIVE, space at hand. NOW the airport has constructed a EXCLUSIVE room…for Muslims. Tell me again how that works?

Somebody ‘splain me, please.

In Obama’s Jaundiced Eye, That’s NOT a Bug

Odierno: Army ‘dangerously close’ to being cut too deep

As the Army prepares to cut 40,000 more soldiers in order to fit into a shrinking budget, the service is in danger of becoming too small for an increasingly dangerous world, the Army’s top officer said, and that may embolden our enemies to act.

“If we get small enough where some of these [world] leaders don’t believe the Army can respond or deter them, if you can’t … deter them from believing they can accomplish something … that increases the threats and danger to the United States,” Odierno said in an exclusive sit-down with Army Times. “And I don’t know what that level is, but I think we’re getting dangerously close to that level now.”

I LOVED the Debate

And this weekend has been a hoot, sitting back, eating popcorn and watching the circus.

In all honesty, I do have a horse in the race I’m already working for, but, that aside, I canNOT imagine a better evening for almost ALL of the GOP candidates, from the breakout girl on the undercard, to the stage full of fellas at the main event. With one notable exception, they were well spoken, informed, intelligent, empathetic, committed, personable, FUNNY and determined. Not to mention, the VERY PICTURE of diversity.

Then there’s Hillary and Bernie as front runners. Fires you right up, doesn’t it?

What a GREAT start to the Silly Season. I can’t WAIT.

“Well, Here’s the Truth. “

THAT’S rich coming out of Obama’s mouth not two sentences after he derides Republicans and “lobbyists who suddenly have become nuclear scientists” for not bending over on Iran and his great plan.

When Even the Far Left Miami Herald Gets It

…Washington, you have a problem.

Keep the Cuban trade embargo

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Miami today — and reports are that she’s going to tackle Miami’s Cuban exile community’s historic third rail question: Should the 50-plus-year-old U.S. trade embargo on Cuba be lifted?

…Mrs. Clinton’s support for lifting the embargo reflects a political calculation about the evolution of the Cuban exile community in Miami. It has indeed evolved, which is why we support the normalization process.

But at some point there must be evolution on the other side, as well. One does not have to be a hardliner to expect a quid pro quo of some kind as this process moves forward. Simply put, Cuba hasn’t earned the embargo’s end. Far from it.

Despite months of talks between the two countries that began in December with President Obama’s announcement that relations would be normalized, we have yet to see any significant actions by the Castro regime that will benefit the United States or enhance the civil liberties and freedoms of the Cuban people.

Internally, the regime maintains the same repressive attitude that has allowed it to stay in power for decades. That includes harassment of peaceful groups like the famed Ladies in White for a series of successive Sundays, when they engage in peaceful marches. The daily arrests, acts of repudiation and censorship of any person or group that questions the official line are still in place…

At least they’re a few centrifuges short of a bomb.

Of ALL the People Exaggerating a Physical Encounter With Police

…you’d NEVER guess one of them to be the delightful Ted Rall, would you?

Coulda knocked me over with a feather.

Ted Rall, Los Angeles Times cartoonist, dropped after blog post appears to stretch the truth

A left-wing cartoonist’s recent depiction of a 14-year-old encounter with the LAPD has gotten him canned as a freelance contributor to the LA Times after the paper said it had “serious questions” about the accuracy of the encounter.

Ted Rall, whose illustrator’s pen has targeted the intellect of U.S. troops in Iraq and the widows of terror attack victims, was dropped by the Times after a May 11 blog post in which he said he was “roughed” up by police for jaywalking in 2001.

An audiotape of the encounter recorded by the police officer does not back up Rall’s assertions; it gives no indication that there was physical violence of any sort by the policeman or that Rall’s license was thrown into the sewer or that he was handcuffed,”

the Times wrote on Thursday in the space above where Rall’s blog post was originally published. “Nor is there any evidence on the recording of a crowd of shouting onlookers.”

Rall “stands by his blog post,” according to the Times.

Rall defends himself in a nearly 2,500-word post on, including why, when his encounter with the LAPD was over, he asked the officer for dining recommendations.

“Listening to the tape now, I can’t imagine what I was thinking,” Rall writes.

The only explanation I can fathom is that I had classic Stockholm Syndrome. I was stunned at the time. Not that I’m comparing myself with a rape victim — far from it — but now I better understand why sometimes a raped woman will question pressing charges or call a date-rapist at home hours after he left her. I was blathering nonsense, I guess.”

No, you are “blathering nonsense” NOW, Teddy.

Five Dead Military Members

…but of COURSE we should be worried about…anxious MUSLIMS.

Chattanooga Muslims mourning, anxious after shootings

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — As the death toll rose to five, a handful of governors ordered National Guardsmen to take up arms in response to the brazen attacks on two Tennessee military sites.

In Chattanooga, a city that prides itself on strong ties between people of different faiths, some Muslims feared the community’s perception of them had changed after the shooting rampage Thursday. A 24-year-old man and fellow Muslim killed four Marines and wounded three others, including a sailor who died Saturday from his wounds.

Mohsin Ali, a member of the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, said he hoped the local community didn’t dissolve into turmoil the way others have in the region over the building of mosques and other matters. Peaceful coexistence has largely prevailed here.

“We, our kids, feel 100 percent American and Chattanoogan,” said the Pakistani-born Ali, who is a child psychiatrist. “Now they are wondering if that is how people still look at them.”

Personally, I think they should be looking at themselves…but that’s just me.
