Shillary Ducks

A woman was taken into federal custody Thursday after throwing a shoe at Shillary Rodham Clinton as the former Secretary of State began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech.

The incident happened moments after “Cankles” took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort.

The incident reminded some of former President George W. Bush dodging two shoes thrown by an Iraqi journalist during a news conference in Baghdad in December 2008. Shoe-throwing is considered an insult in Arab cultures.

Ducking the truth seems to be a well-honed talent as evidenced by the fact that she cancelled her visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned “The Difference Matters” protest for her role in Benghazi where Pat Smith, mother of slain son Sean Smith, appeared along with 70 protesters.  Clinton bravely dodged the truth by appearing via satellite instead.

"I was promised answers, and to this day I don't have any, and I want them before I die," said Smith.

It hasn’t been a good week for Shillary, but then what difference, at this point, does it make?

Let’s Keep Earl Off Welfare

Yesterday I learned that blogger buddy Earl of Taint got laid off from his job.  Earl reports that he and his family are “on half rations here and I need to do anything I can to bring in extra moolah. So while I have no illusions of selling one single thing, I’m going to put something out there and see how it goes. Costs nothing but my time to try.”

What Earl has decided to do is establish a Café Press storefront featuring some of the best conservative snark Photoshops™ the blogosphere has to offer.  Need a Stinkburger T-shirt?  Earl’s got ‘em.  Want something custom?  If he doesn’t officer a design on a product you want just let him know and he can add it for you.

I suggested that Earl establish a PayPal account so that folks who visit his site would have an avenue to donate money to help his family out, but Earl informs me that even though he already has an account with PayPal he’d rather offer something tangible for starters.

Since no cloud arrives sans a silver lining, Earl chimed in saying hopefully he’d be back at work soon.

Nothing would make me happier.  In the interim though, please consider visiting his Café Press storefront and ordering something.  Look around his site.  Find a super snarky Photoshop™ and let him know you want it on a kewl T-shirt.  I’ve got my eyes on a pair of Can of Earl Pajamas and a couple of Stinkburger Potholders (because nobody knows Stinkburgers better than Barack Obama).  I guarantee it’ll be a masterpiece.  As Earl says, “Get some on ya.”

Al Sharpton: Gutter Rat Claims To Be A Hero

The recent revelation of “Reverend” Al Sharpton’s involvement with the feds couldn’t come at a more embarrassing time.

The race baiter who was indicted on federal fraud charges and still owes $5.3 million in back taxes is about to convene the annual convention of his National Action Network in New York this week—with Mayor Bill de Blasio cutting the opening-ceremony ribbon Wednesday and President Obama flying in to give the keynote address Friday.

The big-mouthed bigot and fake preacher said Tuesday that he’s a hero—not a snitch—for wearing an FBI wire to help take down a bunch of mobsters.  “I’m not a mobster, I’m a preacher,” he blustered.

“I was not and am not a rat because I wasn’t with the rats, I’m a cat. I chase rats,’’ the civil-rights activist declared of his work as a paid government informant in the 1980s.

Sharpton, who became a government witness after getting snared in a cocaine drug sting, claims he cooperated so he wouldn’t get whacked by the mob.

It is galling to think that this man now clamors to assume the mantle of hero when, in 2002, he “denied as 'ludicrous' any statement that he had become an FBI informant, but said that he had tapped his own phone to gather information on neighborhood drug dealers.”

The filthy gutter rat now insists that The Smoking Gun exposé which used photographs of him as a 305 lb. tub of shit are embarrassing.

“The only thing I was embarrassed by were those old fat pictures,’’ Sharpton quipped, referring to photos of his previously rotund size published with details of the sensational story Tuesday.

“Could y’all use tomorrow the new [ones], because a lot of my younger members don’t know how fat I was.”

A Tale of Two Leaders

President Selfie: Hopelessly Delusional, Cravenly Dishonest or Mind Numbingly Incompetent?

President Obama made a statement the other day in response to a question about what Mitt Romney had said in the presidential debates about a possible Russia threat. At the time, Obama cavalierly dismissed it as living in the past.
"The 80's called. They want their foreign policy back!"
He doubled down on that stupidity in his reply:
"Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors — not out of strength, but out of weakness"
Weakness? Really?? Was Germany in 1939 merely a "regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors — not out of strength, but out of weakness"? BTW, Mr. President, in case you were on vacation at the time, Russia did more than merely threaten her neighbors, she invaded one and annexed it with nary a shot fired. And as far as being merely a "regional power", exactly how many nukes and ICBMs does this "regional power" possess?

Prior to WWI, Archduke Ferdinand was the leader of a "regional power", whose assassination sparked a global conflict. Some of the "neighbors" the current regional power of Russia might be threatening, are members of NATO. The US has signed treaties with them, that we will defend them the same as if the US were attacked. To quote from their website:
NATO’s essential purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of its members through political and military means.
Now, you can debate all day long whether or not making alliances with various allies is the wisest course to take, or whether we will pursue this course in the future, but are we going to run away from these treaties we have already signed, as Obama has done with the agreements to guarantee the sovereignty and defense of the Ukraine?

The White House is making a big deal out of the fact that the last phone between Putin and Obama was initiated by Putin. Really? This is not because of any weakness. Putin is the kind of guy who, when he shakes your hand, you'd do best to count your fingers afterwards. He is seeking to consolidate his gains and perhaps gauge when the next bit of Russian adventurism might most effectively and efficiently take place.

Barack "President Selfie" Obama and John "Magic Hat" Kerry try to portray Russian acts of aggression as being "weak" and "old fashioned". Perhaps, if either had spent a significant amount of time in the military, they might have learned that the aggressor in a war is not "weak", and war, rather than being somehow a uniquely 19th century phenomenon or as old fashioned as last year's bicycle spandex, is historically an integral part of the human condition.

Someone had best remind The Least Serious President in the History of the Republic™, that part of his job is Commander-in-Chief, and to explain to him everything that goes along with that responsibility. If you can ever get him off the 18th green...

BTW, the headline does not preclude the possibility of a combination of all three.
