Happy National Dog Day From Our Mascot

Dogs have both an outer and inner beauty, an ability to love and a spirit that connects with humans in a way that cannot be replicated by any other living thing.

Opinion Poll: Who Should Moderate The First Presidential Debate?

Remember when CNN’s Candy Crowley interfered with the second presidential debate between Mitt Romney and The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer?

The morbidly obese Crowley was roundly criticized for taking sides when Romney questioned Obama’s claim he had called the Benghazi attack an act of terror in a Rose Garden ceremony the day after the attack rather than blaming it on a spontaneous demonstration.  Crowley infamously butted in (no pun intended) on the exchange regarding the administration’s changing of the Benghazi “talking points”.

Crowley interrupted Governor Romney 28 times during that debate and the president just 9.  Not only were her interruptions flagrantly tilting the debate in the president’s favor she allowed him more time to filibuster by saying, “Let me give the president a chance here.”

The media was desperate to tip the scales in Obama’s favor because his performance in the first debate was so horrendous.

Who would the most effective, fair and balanced moderator for the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?

The Clinton Foundation Scandal Illustrated

Is Twitter Running Interference for Hillary?

I had noticed it before, but again, when I posted the following Tweet, I tagged Hillary in the photo:
Hillary's name disappeared, as it had in several other Tweets I'd noticed. As a test, I posted an old Photoshop of Trump and tagged him:
His tag survived intact. Is Twitter running interference for Hillary by refusing to tag any potentially embarrassing pictures or graphics bearing her name? Inquiring minds want to know!

Update: Just for grins, I Tweeted Hillary to see if maybe she'd blocked me. Nope. That ain't the reason!

National Burger Day

PICTURED (L to R) Former President Bill Clinton, Sandy Berger, Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State
Bill Clinton’s national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was a failure.  On his watch an assassination attempt against Osama bin Laden in 1998 failed when a Tomahawk missile was fired at his encampment.  Trouble was, according to the CIA, bin Laden had left the camp before the attack.

After the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, Berger appeared before the 9/11 Commission to testify on what kind of warnings had been passed on to his successors in the George W. Bush Administration and whether enough had been done to address the rising threat of al-Qaeda.

A 2007 report by the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform revealed Berger made four trips to the reading room of the National Archives in Washington. He did so presumably to refresh his memory before testifying first to the Graham-Goss Congressional Committee and then to the 9/11 Commission. He made his first visit in May 2002, his last in October 2003.

During at least three of those visits, he stole and destroyed an incalculable number of documents.   He stuffed the documents in his pants and socks spiriting them out of the building, hid them in a nearby construction trailer and retrieved them at a later date.

"The full extent of Berger's document removal," said the House report, "is not known and never can be known."

He pleaded guilty in 2005 to removing the highly classified documents and was fined $50,000, sentenced to two years’ probation, ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and stripped of his security clearance.

One headline at the time read “FBI Grills Berger.”

Wait a minute. 

It’s National Burger Day not National Berger Day.  Never mind.

The Pickle That Really Bites Back!

“Screwples” And The Irredeemably Corrupt Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager denial slut, Robby Mook, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to blast The Associated Press report which exposed the fact that at least 85 of 154 people who met with her had donated to the Clinton Foundation Slush Fund while she was in charge of the State Department.

He characterized the published report as “outrageous” and accused the news agency of cherry-picking a very small number of meetings.

The AP was forced to sue the State Department in federal court to obtain Clinton’s schedules.

Mook cited some of the people named in the report including Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as Muhammad Yunus, a Nobel Prize winner, as a defense of the Clinton Foundation.  He would have us believe the Foundation takes money from rich donors and gives it to poor people around the world.

He said Melinda and Bill Gates are "recognized around the world as experts at public health issues." Yunus, he said, is a "world-renowned Nobel Prize-winning economist who is an expert in micro-finance."

"That makes perfect sense for her to meet with him," Mook said.

"At every juncture the foundation set up the highest possible standards to prevent any conflict of interest and the State Department itself has said that there was no conflict of interest.”

Even as his boss, the haggard shrew, continues to brazenly joke about her emails, the evidentiary noose is beginning to tighten.  Her loyalists are soiling themselves in terror.

As the unseemly ties between the Clinton Slush Fund and the State Department became more conspicuous, infamous Clinton hatchet man James “Ragin’ Cajun” Carville told CNN on Monday night, “The press has decided that we’re going to go after this and shut it down.  You are probably going to be successful.  There will be people that are going to die because of this.”  The next day he added, “Somebody is going to hell over this.”

If, in the end, the Clinton Foundation is shuttered it won’t be missed by anyone EXCEPT the hundreds of corporate executives, foreign dignitaries and celebrities trying to buy influence.

Anything Is Possible

Donald Trump brought UK Independence Party Nigel Farage to his Jackson, MS rally.

Farage drew boos from the crowd when he mentioned The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s visit to Great Britain, where he revealed his opposition to the Brexit vote and suggested Britain should remain in the European Union. 

Last April he said Britain would go to the “back of the queue” for trade deals with the US if it voted to leave angering a wide swath of Brexit voters. Hillary Clinton, too, cautioned Britons against scuppering decades of ever-growing trans-Atlantic trade deals.

When voters stunned the world by voting to leave the EU, British Prime Minister David Cameron resigned.shortly thereafter.

Here's Farage's uplifting speech at Wednesday's rally:

The Staggering Hypocrisy Of A Despised Duffer

Via The Advocate—Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said the president spent 20 minutes with him discussing the severity of the flood and traveled to a disaster recovery center to meet with local volunteers.

Later he spent 20 minutes in a closed meeting with families of Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man who was killed in an altercation with police on July 5, and officers slain and wounded in a convenience store attack less than two weeks later.

The Advocate originally criticized the president for not ending his vacation in Martha's Vineyard immediately to visit the region. There has been bipartisan criticism for being too slow to visit the state.

One Denham Springs resident slammed the president saying, "There ain't nothing he can do for us that Louisiana ain't done for ourselves.  I've got no help from the federal government. I ain't asking for help from the government. Baby, let me tell you my community has come through."
