"Forged what?"

The thing they flew to Hawaii to pick up.

Danube on iPad

Did West take Pigford money?

Threadkiller

I did not know the thing they picked up was a forgery.

Has that been hypothesized?

That Rockland Times piece was the most heart-warming thing I've read in months.

There is no way to live blog this mess.

I think they pump carbon monoxide into the briefing room.

I would rather watch a SNL parody of his pressers. More truth less BS.

This is the parody.

My fingers are crossed that "Heidi" interrupts this sham.

Flash!!!! TNT is airing the PGA Championship live. Obama Presser did not preempt. There is a God in Heaven.

Threadkiller

He just said "jigger".

Will it be in the transcript?

Clarice

Jane--Headers=headlines, a slight exaggeration, but you and Carol were mentioned twice by bloggers IIRC> Made quite an impression you , too, did. XO

I supported Allen West when virtually no one else did and he;s the kind of guy who remembers that.

Danube on iPad

"Has that been hypothesized?"

No. But if the thing on the WH website is a forgery, why go to Hawaii to pick up anything?

I am watching the PGA. Wouldn't listen to this president on a bet.

Threadkiller

To convince you that an original exists?

Jack is Back!

Watching PGA also and pulling for 400 - birdies that is:)

Its going to be. doozy Sat and Sun if evertthing remains soft.

From the Journal, the Egyptian junta is now mad at us, although they seem more mad at McGramnesty and prospective Ambassador Ford, yes I meant that chimera like connotation,

Threadkiller

The only plus is this should have preempted most of Shemp.

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

What was that...4 or 5 questions? What a waste of time.

Captain Hate

There's a hilarious photo on Rupert's dead tree of Egyptian banners with very pointed comments regarding Gaylord and Anne Patterson. That smart diplomacy is just working swimmingly with McRINO and Miss Lindsey urging for terrorists to be released.

I sleep almost as soundly as the JEF did last 9/11 knowing that the best and brightest are focused like a laser on foreign policy.

Bold prediction:

The prominent conservative that gets in front of this horrible presser and exposes it for what it is, wins in 2014 or 2016, in whatever office they choose.

You know things are bad, when Al Guardian gives the best review of the rubbish that Arslan put out;

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/ken-shepherd/2013/08/08/guardian-reviewer-skewers-aslans-zealot-best-marginal-contribution-und

Yes, it's still redolent of the condecession displayed against Lauren Green, for the nerve of questioning his credentials, but still.

Rush was talking about this piece, referenced by
Taranto yesterday;

Rush also highlighted a particular thumbsucking piece by Carlos Slim's chimp in training, about the attitudes of certain demographic cohorts toward Spitzer and Weiner, they thought it was the fact that their congregations had experienced dissapointment or some other folderall about forgiveness, it's simple they are
Democrats.

Jane -walk like an Egyptian

I think Eliana was the star of the cruise.

Did anyone ask Bambi about the "phony scandals"? Or was it all prepared in advance.

Jack is Back!

Jane,

Why was she the star? Did she mention anything more on IRS/FEC/DEA we haven't heard? In her opinion does this "phony" scandal have wheels - all the way to yhe WH?

narciso

This is much like what Hercules had to slog through;

Narciso,

Those pics reflect the new reality within the Googleplex, don't they? Nice crisp and clear imaging, good English, decent photoshops of Morbama and Obama bin Laden.

It's almost as if socialist media has some new non-socialist players slinging anti-BOzo propaganda.

What's your over/under on the number of MBs to be detweeted by al-Sisi on Monday in celebration of the end of the Mahometan whatever? I'm going <100 but there will be some thought displayed in target selection with a few MB megamouths clipped as examples.

I think the Brotherhood, is slowly learning 'the Lesson of Not Being Seen' Rick, so I figure it will be lower, for the time being.

And they wonder aloud why, oh why, they are selling out so cheap? Could the TV media be next?

Jack is Back!

narciso,

The MB have a safe haven at the WH, if they can just get there. Also, does Putin have a "practical joker" sense of humor? Because if he does even the SS won't be able to keep the TOTUS from being hacked in cyrillic script.

Thomas Collins

Re narciso's 4:49 PM link: I guess Sun Tzu Obama never learned in his oh-so-elite education that the worst way to deal with a world leader is to show abject weakness (screwing Poland on Euro missile defense to please Russia, agreeing to limits on our nuke forces, and so on) and then hurl a personal insult at the leader.

Jane -walk like an Egyptian

JIB,

I'm not sure I can answer your question. To me the IRS scandal is the most important one, and she is the person breaking the most news.

She puts a lot of things together. We know that Lerner was in collusion with the FEC before Obama. We know what Anita Dunn's husband Bob Bauer wrote the memos against True the Vote. We know that by 2012 most everyone knew Schulman lied under oath and no one said a thing. We know that the Obama campaign targeted Crossroads and True the Vote.

That's all I recall at the moment.

lyle

Was any of the oral sex at the presser televised or was it discreetly off-camera?

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

The last question was from Scott Horsley of NPR-- boy was he sickening. You could tell he HATED Republicans.
JiB's link is a nice overview of the questions asked.

Jack is Back!

I am old enough to remember the reverence the press showed Truman, Kennedy and the way they went after Nixon (Rather comes to mind) and who can forget that blowhard Donaldson on Reagan and Bush 41?

This is not new. The press for my lifetime have been nothing more than left wing apologists.

narciso

That was an idiot question on Major Garrett's part, Janet Yellen's record is the issue.

narciso

Yes, but they've dialed it right past eleven, JiB.

From JIB's link:

The president outlined four steps he would take: 1. urging reform of section 215 of the Patriot Act, under which the NSA has been collecting telephone records;

"Urging," huh? The steely nerve and stiffened backbone must have sent a collective swoon through the fluffers.

2 working with Congress to improve public confidence in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court;

Because he's "worked" with Congress sooo much before.

3. providing additional public information about NSA programs;

*cough*bullshit*cough*

4. forming a group of outside experts to evaluate government counter-terrorism policies, including the monitoring of communications.

The true heart of rock-ribbed academic: form a committee.

Threadkiller

From the comment section at WZ:

Threadkiller

Isn't #4 called "congress"?

Jane -walk like an Egyptian

Summers may cause the stock market to crash if he reigns in QE2.

lyle

The word is "taper," Jane. But I'd reckon Summers has little interest in crapping on the one aspect of the economy that all the dutiful progs keep pointing to as proof of the "strength" of the recovery.

And congrats on the name check at Powerline.

lyle

Also, QE2 is so yesterday. The Fed is on several sequels to that and just like the putrid film industry, each iteration is worse.

Jane -walk like an Egyptian

Apparently Summers is warning that the coming debt crisis has Obama's name all over it, if he doesn't reign it in.

Anyway, I'm clueless but that's what I hear.

Scott Johnson is a really great guy, and I love his wife too.

Ranger

Well, this is significant, if not entirely surprising:

Egyptian officials: We partnered with Israel on a drone strike against Islamists in the Sinai

Not really surprising because the Egyptian Army has seen Islamist as a much greater threat than Israel for roughly the last 30 years.

Ranger

Doh... forgot the link:

http://hotair.com/archives/2013/08/09/egyptian-officials-we-partnered-with-israel-on-a-drone-strike-against-islamists-in-the-sinai/

Sorry about that.

lyle

If that's what Summers is warning, say hello to Janet Yellin as the next Fed chair.

Oh, who am I kidding? Yellin is in just to pander to the womyn--and as a slap to the Patriarchy--but mostly because she'll keep the good times rolling to continue to finance Zero's Grand Illusion.

Jane -walk like an Egyptian

Lyle, I am told Obama wants Summers and no one else agrees.

Jack is Back!

Ouch! Jason Dufner had a very legitamate chance to shoot the lowest round ever in a major - 62 - and came up short. He's in one. of my pool picks but Tiger is holding me back.

lyle

Isn't #4 called "congress"?

Not when hated republicans are on it.

lyle

I happen to think you are correct, Jane. I'll bet Val wants Janet, though.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Well whatever Val wants, appears to be what the 3rd party president does.

narciso

If it's soneone halfway competent, he's a goner, I'm not stipulating that Summers is necessarily the former.

Volodya knows even the dimmest students at Patrice Lumumba, wouldnt be this foolish.

And when Zawahiri, is running the Dunder Mifflin conference call from hell, there's no question about core AQ vs. affiliates.

This is Bill; new idea:

Build the world's biggest, strongest and most safety conscious oil rail car. Stick it on a siding that straddles the border.Chock it in place

Feed oil in on the Canadian side and out to a waiting pipeline on the U.S. side. Problem solved.

You can deposit the royalties to my Paypal account.

I am watching Brett Baier on Fox--absolutely horrifying piece about a would be rock star living on food stamps! He is completely healthy, and we are paying for him!!

matt

I like Summers better than most. He has some common sense.God forbid this Administration have any of that.

Today's UK press is reporting a discussion withing the Bank of England of devaluing the Pound to make the country's exports more competitive.

We have devalued our currency. The Japanese have done so, and Europe has done so. We are already engaged in currency wars. The Koreans, Taiwanese, and Chinese shamelessly devalue and revalue their currencies.

The markets are on edge because Bernanke will surely end QE XIV (sounds like the Super Bowl). At this point we all fall down.

Interest rates on RE are already climbing and the stock markets have been artificially pumped as investors seek some growth, much of it through stock price inflation.

Balloons always eventually pop or slowly lose their contents.

Ranger,

It's interesting to look at the Egyptian/Israeli cooperation in terms of fulfillment of mutual interests. Egypt needs gas and grain, Israel needs peace in order to fully develop its gas and oil discoveries, Russia would like to maintain the Gazprom premium for NG delivered to the idiotic Eutopians.

Killing Islamists is not just good sport, it's also a means to a healthier economic environment for the three main players. Blocking the proposed Syrian pipeline is another factor, as is a nice Russian naval base on Cypress.

centralcal

polly and other JOMers - I just had the most fun with a new Special Report (Bret Baier) feature called Bing Pulse. I and 60,000-70,000 other viewers voted during each segment of the Panel remarks. It was so cool!

centralcal

I signed in on my iPad and could vote along while watching the show on my TV. Jane will love this feature too (maybe she was voting right along with me!).

Well, I saw that cc, but was too lazy to sign up. Will do soon.

polly - it was insanely easy to do, even for a luddite like me.

I voted with you CC. Did you put May 17th on your calendar?

Steyn didn't have much mirth in this weeks offering, it might have been more amusing had he published it after the press conference:

MarkO

In the same way that I admire and marvel at Indian fakirs sleeping on nails, I admire the discipline and tolerance of those who can listen to Obama. Bless your hearts.

Among the other lies he told today, I noted that, as a god might have been assumed to have done, he had ordered a review of the NSA programs before, yes before, Snowden's revelations were made public.

As always, he knew.

Insert here imprecation.

narciso

Well that is part of the preponderance of absurdity, what Rush has called the Limbaugh theorem,

Why do I think this won't turn out well.

"But people may have better ideas and people may want to jigger slightly sort of the balance between the information that we can get versus the incremental encroachments on privacy that if haven't already taken place might take place in a future administration, or as technologies develop further."

Tiger is tied for 38th, 10 strokes back. My spirits are lifted.

MarkO

Obama's just not that smart.

Jigger, however, may soon go the way of niggardly.

4JackisBack!2 (On His iPhone)

MarkO,

Of course he knew. When you are the most brilliant man in the galaxy (ask Vlad), then you know everything before it happens. That's why he had BAH place Snowden in Hawaii (see the connection) and then do the traitor/leak deed. It's all a phony but elaborate misdirection to make Vlad look like a guy going backwards instead of leaning forward.

The guy's a genius!

4JackisBack!2 (On His iPhone)

Actually I have a jigger, maybe more than one. It's a golf club from the turnof the century used around the greens. It's also a bar measurement of less than a fu shot.

Knowing Zero he mean't all of his work has missed the target and you only get part of the remedy.

Danube on iPad

I've got several jiggers that I used to use for pouring booze. But long ago I shifted to seaman's eye, which works fine.

MarkO

I, too, have owned jiggers.

Some of them double sided.

Yes, it was a 'cunning, cunning' plan, typical of Wile E Coyote, supergenius,

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

I guess nothing will come of the IRS targeting conservatives. The EPA gathers info on farmers & ranchers & gives it to enviro. groups & ...nothing.

Same with Benghazi. They stood in front of the nation & lied & it doesn't matter.
Ol' Obama had a lot of nerve saying some countries put people in jail for what their citizens post on the internet! Hello! What about Nakoula?!?

"We shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes, and the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online." ~ Obama

They are what is known as lapidary prose.

"To convince you that an original exists?" The images of the certified copy on the web, and the Hawaii officoals' statements, served that purpose for me.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Mark,

Let's do both!

Jack is Back!

I for one am hoping the Florida boycott is sucessful.

Less dependency moochers moving here.

No more tatooed. LIVs from the northeast.

Fewer loudmouthed union thugs telling us how much they are. worth sitting on their ass at the beach.

Shorter lines at the welfare office, the unemployment office and the local jail and court house.

But most importantly better people overall here and less smelly.

narciso

Well true, JiB, I heard that bit on the local Clear Channel station, which is fairly useless, and as with a similar gesture from Detroit, struck me as ironic, it's like LA boycotting Elysium in that wretched piece of agitprop.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

cc and Jane, you have inspired me. After a 15 month hiatus and recuperation, I am going back to trying to earn some dough so I can join you guys in either Bermuda, Coronado or both.

Anyone need an old trial lawyer for a either a paralegal, or a strategic or tactical advisor or even a second chair on of the wall cases? I am very inexpensive and can work anywhere in the country in a virtual environment.

Will work for trip to Bermuda or Coronado.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Based on my review of the above post, I had better relearn my editing skills if I am going back in the arena.

Jim,

You can be the DA on St. Jane's Island. Only one law to prosecute. No sober right thinking people allowed. But drunken or sober liberals are fair game:)
