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."

Hillary Opens A Jar Of Pickles For John Kasich

Making her third appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Crooked Hillary was given a jar of pickles to open to prove she is strong.  The host even took her pulse.

Clinton said that it “absolutely makes no sense” to spread the rumors about her health. “I don’t go around questioning Donald Trump’s health. As far as I can tell, he’s as healthy as a horse.”

You’ll remember that John Kasich, whose daddy was a postman, made a campaign stop in May at P J Bernstein’s Deli Restaurant in New York City where reporters were left awestruck at the gluttonous number of pickles he ate even instructing that the proper way to eat them was with one’s pinky in the air.

Ain’t No Community Organizer Got Time For That!

On Thursday, Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson took heat from reporters in a news conference in flood-ravaged Louisiana.

Responding to criticism that President Obama has not interrupted his summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard, Johnson said several times, "The president can't be everywhere."

Johnson also said The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer "has a very busy schedule this fall and in the coming days,"

"There's been a lot of criticism about President Obama not visiting Louisiana. Will you be recommending that he come to Louisiana and visit?" a reporter asked Johnson.

“Well, of course the president can't be everywhere. I can tell you that the president has been closely monitoring the situation here in Louisiana. He made the federal (disaster) declaration in a matter of hours—it was expedited, we're up to 20 parishes now.”

“I will be briefing him on what I see here and what the status of our recovery and response efforts are...So the president is closely monitoring the situation, through his cabinet, through his FEMA administrator, and is very much on top of it.”

The reporter again asked if Johnson would recommend that Obama visit:

"As I said, the president can't be everywhere. I know he has a very busy schedule this fall and in the coming days, and uh, he is closely monitoring the situation. When you are the chief executive of the entire U.S. government, you can't be everywhere, uh, including places you would like to be. Uh, but through me and through (FEMA Director) Craig Fugate, I know he is very much on top of this situation.”

Another reporter noted that Wednesday's briefing from the White House press pool began with the announcement that the president was playing a round of golf: "And you sit there and say twice the president can't be everywhere. The people of Louisiana are dying. How hard is it for you, as the Homeland Security director, for you to have your updates going to the president on the golf course?”

"Well, as I said, he is very much on top of the situation, and I know that he is aware of the level of federal assistance that can be provided and is being provided, and I'll be briefing him myself right after this visit,” Johnson responded.

When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, President George W. Bush was excoriated by Democrats and the media for taking a helicopter tour of the flooded city instead of getting a ground-level view.

Donald Trump visited Louisiana today and helped to hand out supplies to flood victims.

Humiliation Of Ivanka Trump Backfires

On my way home from the eye doctor I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio.  Mark Belling, drive-time host on News/Talk 1130 WISN-AM in Milwaukee, was sitting in for Rush.

He began the show by talking about an article posted on BizPac Review which long-time producer James Golden AKA Bo Snerdley brought to his attention.

BizPac published a report concerning a toney jewelry store in Brooklyn popular with Beyoncé and Rihanna which tried to humiliate Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

“The company’s founders, Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader, were “flattered” to receive an order from the 34 year-old Trump, but decided to make a political statement when they shipped the item.”

“Included in the shipment of the ear cuff [she ordered] was a handwritten note to Trump, shaming her for her father’s political ideals.”

The note read:
“Dear Ivanka, Thank you for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill.”
Sometimes fate works in your favor.  Right after the RNC Convention, the GOP made available for purchase an anti-Hillary t-shirt which had been included in swag bags presented to the delegates.  The front of the shirt reads ENOUGH and the back lists 19 scandals in the Hillary Clinton Scandal Tour.  It arrived today via FedEx and was waiting on my porch when I got home.

Furious over the jewelry store owners’ attempt to humiliate this young lady, I penned the following note which I included with the t-shirt I just dropped off at the UPS Store.  The package was shipped to Lady Grey, 37 Greenpoint Ave, #E3A Mailbox 29, Brooklyn, NY 11222.
Dear Ms. Martinelli and Ms. Le Guyader, 
Thank you for flagrantly abusing your Privacy Policy and failing to follow industry best practices intended to protect your customers’ personal information.  When I learned of your Bolshevik antics regarding Ivanka Trump’s purchase of your elitist jewelry, I decided to send you this t-shirt highlighting your goddess’s criminal acts dating all the way back to 1978. 
Your publicity stunt has backfired.  Please enjoy the t-shirt with my best wishes.  When they finally lock her up I hope you harlots will be compassionate enough to visit her in the slammer 
I suspect you are quaking in your Neiman-Marcus boots at the thought of a pending lawsuit against you for violating Ms. Trump’s privacy.

Taking Granny to the Home

Harry Reid Walks Into A Bear

The bear says "unfortunate typo," and eats him. 
We all live happily ever after.

Remember the controversy Khizr Khan ignited onstage at the 2016 DNC Convention?  He chose to be an accomplice of the Democratic Party and its congenital liar Hillary Clinton in order to impugn Donald Trump rather than remain true to the memory of his fallen son.  Declaring to the delegates and viewers watching on TV Khan said, “Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with our future.  Let me ask you.  Have you even read the US Constitution?  I will gladly lend you my copy.”

Following his attack on Trump, conservatives began to probe Khan’s political leanings, his associations with Islamist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood, his connections with Saudi-funded institutes which espouse Wahhabi jihadism and his work as a lawyer for clients in Pakistan and the Middle East.

The spotlight was fading for Khan so two days ago he poked his head up out of his hole in Virginia to email the Huffington Post, “I challenge Trump to take the naturalization test with me any day.  His is demagoguery and pandering for votes.  A divider like Trump can never be the steward of this country.”

In a foreign policy speech delivered Monday, Trump said that before being allowed to come to the United States, potential immigrants and refugees should have to take an ideological test. Trump called the idea part of his new plan of “extreme vetting,” and said, “The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today.”

Shortly afterwards, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) derided Trump to take “the one test every immigrant has to pass to become a United States citizen.  He would almost certainly fail, given his general ignorance and weak grasp of basic facts about American history, principles and functioning of our government.  The fact is, Donald Trump is nothing more than a spoiled, unpatriotic drain on society who has earned nothing and helped no one.”

Admit it.  That’s rich coming from a guy who “claims” to have been injured in his bathroom using “large rubber band” exercise equipment that “broke” spinning him around striking a cabinet with his ugly-ass face which caused a concussion, broken orbital bones, loss of vision in his right eye, severe disfigurement, bruising to his face, facial lacerations, hand injuries, scarring and broken bones.

What’s even more outlandish is his lawsuit against Hygenic Intangible Property Holding Company, The Hygenic Corporation, and Performance Health, LLC, three intertwined corporations that manufacture and distribute the TheraBand exercise band, filed in Clark County, Nevada District Court on behalf of his wife for the loss of marital consortium.

“At the time of the accident complained of in this Complaint, Plaintiffs were married and continue to be married. As a result of the negligent act(s) of the Defendants, Plaintiff, LANDRA GOULD, was caused to suffer and will continue to suffer a loss of consortium,” the complaint reads.

Landra Gould wants the exercise band manufacturer to pay her for the damages caused by her “loss of intimate relations” with her 75-year-old husband.  Don’t make me laugh.

Draw your own conclusions, but what’s more likely to have occurred is some Las Vegas shylock’s goombata were hired to give ol’ Harry a good working over. It’s worth noting that following his “accident” Harry seemed convinced he should retire in January.

Marco Squirrel-O

A week ago this past Friday I headed to the beach with my little furkid, Sophie The Wonderdog, for a mini-vacay with friends.  I left the place in the capable hands of Adrienne and Proof.

The problem with leaving the keys to the liquor cabinet with these two blogger friends is Proof lets the squirrel population at Casa de Curmudgeon have free reign of the place while he and Adrienne sample swill all the good liquor.  Adrienne at least tries to tidy up the joint before I get home.

I left the beach early this morning unbeknownst to my party-hardy friends.  When I pulled into the driveway I heard someone in the backyard hollering “Polo, Polo, Polo”.

There, in my pool, I found some Italian guy with all his clothes on, a water-skiing squirrel and one on Adrienne’s cats taking a dip.  What the…

There were nuts on the bottom of the pool and cat hair stuck in the pool filter.

Usually, Proof charges my credit card to hire topless maids to clean up the mess he leaves.  This time there wasn’t a trace of anyone trying to tidy up.  What am I gonna do with these two?
