Buford Gooch

Hillary declined to name Boko Haram a terrorist group. Interesting in that she also declined to name the Taliban a terrorist group, even after the urging of several big time Dem liberals.

Danube on iPad

If you call them terrorist you will anger them, and drive them into the arms of the communists.

jimmyk on iPhone

True, and they might do something really evil like kidnap hundreds of young school girls. Which I'm sure was because Kerry labeled them as terrorists.

I thought the Whitehouse Diplomatic room was only used for presenting Academy Awards and filming Between Two Ferns??

Are we even sure the First Lady is even there?

Speaking of the Koch Brothers, (and who ain't), Anthony Watts of Watts Up appears to be mulling a Law Suit for slander against Michael Mann, for falsely accusing him of being in the pay of the Koch Brothers.

Scroll down to item number 3 on Anthony's weekend thread.

daddy

Aw geez,

Jeter is using a pink bat today.

daddy

Am watching Trey Gowdy's Dem opponent on FOX pre-accusing this new Benghazi Investigation as a Kangaroo Court and a waste of Taxpayer money.

Anybody remember when the Dem's ran the House and thought it was a great idea to hold a Hearing and let Stephen Colbert testify in his "comedic role" as a Conservative? How much did that cost?

narciso

Yes, pointing out the real war on women, is Haram.

Boehner is saying no jail time for Lois Lerner. Happy Mother's Day, biatch.

They ain't no terrorists in Iraq.
Or in Afghanistan.
Or in Yemen.
Or in Mali.
Or in Nigeria.

What we get from this White House where overseas matters are concerned is baby steps--or more precisely Red Diaper Baby Steps.

Jeter has now laid aside the pink bat (he popped up a bunt in the first using it) and now is using a regular baseball bat. Sanity returns.

Happy Mother's Day! It is beautiful here today! daddy,a dog question for you. Did Fry get sick after catching the rabbit? Our Scout keeps throwing up (gross). We think he's eating frogs when we're up at the cabin. The ground is very wet up there, the snow finally melted.The frogs are out in full force.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Boehner is saying no jail time for Lois Lerner.

I seriously think every law abiding American citizen should be given a "Free to be lawless" token for every Lerner-like crook that is let off the hook.
...and for every illegal alien that is allowed to break our laws & stay in our country.
Maybe they should also give us one "I Opt For Censure" token too.

That'd be at least 11,000,002 tokens to be lawless.
We could mail them in on April 15th.
Hand 'em to the police when we've been speeding.
Toss 'em to the park police when Jess is off leash.
Use them on tollways.
Steal merchandise, but leave a token.
Clive Bundy could hand the BLM a token.

Why in the world do any of us have to obey any laws?

heh

More importantly (from their perspective), it clashes with their messaging of a Republican War on Women by reminding people what a real war on women looks like.

Now that's some top-shelf analysis right there.

TM's intellectual decline continues apace.

Happy Mother's Day!

Enjoy the nice weather if ya gots it.

Weather is great here, Stephanie. 81F on the beach, 86F interior.

For Mother's Day, Mrs. JiB told me she would like a paddleboard. We are the surf capital of Florida where we are and lots of paddleboarders out there on the ocean. So I got her one which Frederick has already commandeered and started practicing in the pool:)

rich@gmu

Easley has a lack of imagination if he thinks there is nothing to the IRS scandal.

Surprised, but not really:

there hasn't been more back lash against it.

and libs are going out of their way to excuse it all.

and a Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's here. I miss my mom everyday.

I'd much rather have a special committee investigate the IRS scandal than Benghazi.

Captain Hate

If the Repubs screw up this chance to neuter the IRS they're worthless.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Lois Lerner wasn't even fired....she either resigned or retired. Half the stories say resigned & half say retired.
The MFM are worthless.
....but anyway, she wasn't even fired.

I seriously think every law abiding American citizen should be given a "Free to be lawless" token for every Lerner-like crook that is let off the hook.

If you're a farmer and your cows graze on the wrong side of the fence, you get helicopters and tanks sent after you.

If you run a company and you can't prove that the wood you use in your guitars is in compliance with new regulations despite having used for decades, you get a SWAT team tearing up your offices.

If you're driving the wrong color truck in Los Angeles when the police are especially stressed out, you get shot at 100+ times.

If you openly and repeatedly abuse your power, blatantly lie to Congress, hide evidence and refuse to answer subpoenas...crickets.

Yeah, I can really see why us average citizens ought to honor the rule of law, and treat our elected and appointed officials with respect...

hit and run

Janet:
I seriously think every law abiding American citizen should be given a "Free to be lawless" token for every Lerner-like crook that is let off the hook.

Don't hide it - you've already told us before. The reason you want the tokens is because you've knocked over several 7-11's in your past and intend on doing it again.

The Tour of California has passed through our quaint downtown. A few hundred people showed up to cheer them on -- there was a breakaway pack of six that was a few minutes ahead of the masses. Captain America and his sidekick ran along with the bikes as best they could. They were going about 50 mph, so they didn't really succeed.

We were downwind of a BBQ joint that will leave me hungry until dinner.

rich@gmu

some bbq sounds great right about now.

DrJ, "the masses" - you mean the peloton:)

From 2010 - the Tour de France passes through Mrs. JiB's hometown on the 2nd leg of the tour.

Rick B

"I'd much rather have a special committee investigate the IRS scandal than Benghazi."

How about a joint select committee on the IRS when the new Congress convenes in January? Rushing things just takes all the fun out of a vivisection and I would prefer all IRS employees to be forced to start every day with a double dose of Immodium from now until November '16.

Extraneus

Check out Drudge if your appetite is getting the better of you, DrJ. Otherwise, DO NOT GO THERE.

Here's a couple of quick and amateur videos of the event:

Note Captn America on the latter.

We are uphill of the quaint part of downtown, so the view of Auburn is not great.

daddy

Boehner is saying no jail time for Lois Lerner.

So she has tacit immunity from the DOJ, now buttressed by actual immunity from Speaker Boehner.

Why would Boehner think she would tell the truth since he has told her there won't be any consequences for lying.

Seems to me that if she is caught lying, now Boehner has tied the hands of Republican's who press for punishment, because they will be called hypocrites for not complying with Boehner's pronouncement giving her a free pass.

I don't understand.

narciso

Well Boehner is a fool, but that's just a day ending in y;

• Boko Haram executed three human bomb attacks on Christian churches in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna in June 2012. At least 50 people were killed, according to the Red Cross. 131 were injured. This was “the third weekend in a row in which Boko Haram has carried out bombings on churches” [BBC] The report points out that “Kaduna lies on the dividing line between Nigeria’s largely Christian south and mainly Muslim north… Since 2009, it has targeted police stations and other government buildings, churches and schools. Hundreds of people have died in the attacks, and analysts suggest the group is trying to trigger clashes between Christians and Muslims.”

this is just some of what the Congregation of the Tradition of Faith, did after the first refusal to list them in the terrorist directory.

I disagree with the analysis, likee the enemies
in Independence Day, they just 'want us to die'

daddy

Marlene,

Fry did not puke since he did not eat the rabbit. Momma said he killed it, then felt guilty about it and tried to cover up the crime.

I'm thinking there might be a tad bit of anthropomorphism going on, but that's just momma:)

Jack is Back

Today leaving for church, my neighbor was out on the road pointing to something I couldn't see because of the corner. When we turned we saw a 6 foot diamond back. He was gesturing to run over it. So we did - about 6 times until it finally gave up. Didn't have my Glock in the glove compartment this time which would have been the easiest way to deal with this guy but he was a monster and the first I have seen this season. Weather is very warm and it tends to bring them out on the tarmac.

Bori

Ironic, that they did not want to add Boko Haram from the terrorist group listing to deny them International notoriety.

So they committed enough atrocities to earn the distinction.

Jack is Back

DrJ,

Just found the Tour of California on NBC SN on my cable. Looks like 50 miles to Sac from the perspective they just showed.

Extraneus

Having referred Lois Lerner to the DoJ (for a mandatory grand jury?), did the House give up their option of granting her immunity?

DrJ

JiB,

That's about right. This leg of the Tour starts and finishes in Sacramento; Auburn and Placerville are about as far out as they get this year.

Other years Grass Valley and Nevada City were included. Both are biking communities that hold good races by themselves.

MarkO

The hashtag, useful only on Twitter (especially useful in Nigeria), is the perfect union of passivity and performance art that passes for Obama's foreign policy. Obama has always wanted to appear to be doing something wonderfully important even though he never has.

Jail is too good for Lerner, but Holder will do nothing.

narciso

I didn't think of it that way, Bori, like merit badges of evil, the Taliban before Bamiyan, AQ before the attack in Riyadh, AaS in the Spring of 2012,

What's happening in the wonderland of socialist Venezuela? That has sure dropped off the radar of our MFM.

#WhatAboutVenezuelanGirls

glasater

Jesse Jackson made that comment (that daddy so nicely transcribed for us and thanks for that) that the kidnapped girls were Muslim which isn't true at all. Many are Christian girls who will be forced to become Muslims.

Plus, according to a report the group of girls have been broken down into smaller groups spread all over in other countries in West Africa. Two have been reported killed by snake bite.

That they will all be recovered at all is looking dim. What a horror.

Danube on iPad

Ext., that grand jury is mandatory only in the sense that the statute says "shall." John Yoo says it's unconstitutional (I agree). In any event, if the U.S. Attorney for D.C. declines to convene one, there's no remedy. So I guess we know how this will turn out.

Islam is a very Progressive religion, it allowed women to own property. Of course without a man to handle any business regarding said property, she might as well be on the street.

Owning property gave a man a least a financial incentive to take care of the woman.

"Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift said on Sunday’s The McLaughlin Group that late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed the night of the Benghazi attacks, had not been murdered but had died from 'smoke inhalation.' 'I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’' Clift said, using air quotes, 'but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room.' This did not land well. 'It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor,' panelist-for-life Pat Buchanan said. 'He was murdered in a terrorist attack.' Clift responded that it was an opportunistic terrorist attack inflamed by the anti-Muslim video...."

If someone dies of smoke inhalation in a fire set by an arsonist, the arsonist is guilty of murder. Apparently that doctrine does not apply if the arsonist has the good fortune to be a terrorist, and particularly a terrorist enraged by a video he has never seen.

A little chicken left on that bone...

Officer Joe Friday: So you listen up Lois Lerner and you listen up good. We want some answers out of you and if you don't provide them you're not going to jail.

Lerner: Okay, I'll talk because I...wait...what? Did you just say I won't go to jail?

Friday: That's right Lerner, you heard me right. Speaker Boehner just said that no matter what, you will not be going to Jail. Period.

Lerner: So I'm not looking at any Jail time, even if I continue to lie, and even if I did violate the Constitutional Rights of thousands of decent American citizens, and it's not even part of an immunity agreement?

Friday: That's right Lerner. Speaker Boehner just cut our nuts off, so no matter what lies you tell us or what crimes you committed, you aren't going to jail. So come clean Lois, you better start talking.

Lerner: You guys really are the stupid party.

Friday: Just the facts, Mamm. Just tell us the facts.


I just did.

Miss Marple

Excuse me for asking, but was there ever an autopsy of Ambassador Stephens body? If so (doubtful since it was cremated pretty quickly after it was returned to the US), were those results made public?

I think Eleanor is simply repeating whatever Hillary told her.

Captain Hate

Too bad Jack Germond never developed a gasbag seeking missile to unleash on the McLaughlin Group. Eleanor "Can I Finish?" Clift was a real treat; her deceased husband took the easy way out rather than have to continue to listen to that shrieking harridan, not that he was any prize.

You guys made me look at Eleanor Clift's wiki entry. I was going to call her an old bag, but have reconsidered since she is younger than I am by a few months:) She was married to Montgomery Clift's older brother until his death. Then she was married to her second husband until his death, so her harridanism claimed at least 2 victims.

Eleanor is proof that twits can succeed well beyond their abilities if they latch on remora-like to sharks like the klintoons.
