Welcome to Saturday in Mars.

Tropical depression forming off East Africa but doesn't seem to be a threat - yet!

Reggie Love is not loved by NBC. How dare he make them seem like a poodle dog to Obama:)

NK

JiB-- that article about the NBC D*^%ks yucking it up about BODYMAN Reggie and Obummer makes me spitting mad. many of the Seal Team heroes are dead, having been KIA a few weeks later. And what makes me madder is that Brian Williams swirling around Obummer's A#%@hole in 2012. BRIAN EFFIN' WILLIAMS IS A PUSSY; of course he lives in New Canaan.

Captain Hate on an iPhone

Hilarious that they find Reggie at fault for telling the truth about their AWOL dreamboat after Thirteen Credits fluffed him so much with the fawning interview of the dumbass.

NK

I am Gobsmacked that my angry attack on Brian Williams was far more vulgar than CaptH's. I'm not proud of that, but I would say those very words to Brian Williams' face and ask him if he wanted to do anything about it.

Captain Hate on an iPhone

Sorry, make that Eighteen Credits

narciso

Well it's striking how quickly,

In fact I'm so pissed I may drive up to new canaan in the '99 suburban and yell those very words into the CCTV camera at the Williams' gate. Williams won't do anything about it... but the NCPD might. Hmm...

I think Dennis Prager would do fine as a Debate Moderator.

Andrew Breitbart and Adam Carolla both cited Prager as a guy that they regularly listened to in their pre-Conservative days who was fundamental in moving them from the Left to the Right, and he did it simply with logic and persuasive argument, not with bluster or gimmicks or vitriol. It is a real loss that we don't have him up here anymore, but thank goodness we did get Dennis Miller.

matt

thing is, it seems on almost every issue, question, statement and action this administration is found out to have lied or covered it up months later. Their whole policy seems to be to ram it through and worry about the consequences later.

I am going to guess that Obama has a stack of pardons already signed in his desk drawer including one for himself.

One thing the Constitution and later generations did not take into account was the sheer scale of a truly corrupt administration.

The time for mass civil disobedience is fast approaching.Let the networks show images of Granny and Uncle Joe being carted off by militarized police and TSA fascists.

My only fear is that the doped up masses will simply say "cool" and go back to their bongs.

Army of Davids

Yes!!!..

The weekend is here!!!

The Communists are not that big of a faction. It just seems like it because of the ruckus they kick up. Per Rasmussen:

Seventy percent (70%) of American Adults think a free market economy is better than one managed by the government. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 15% believe a government-managed economy is better. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

Those 15% are Democrats. Virtually all of them.

Captain Hate on an iPhone

You know, Tarhole, there's this thing called the interwebs that should enable you to listen to Prager whenever you want. I could even find it on this iPhone,

Thomas Collins

My debate panelists would be Victor Davis Hanson, Sarah Palin (if she's not running herself), TM, Jeralyn Merritt and Amity Shlaes. Megyn Kelly would moderate. Richard Epstein, Thomas Sowell, Sally Satel, Clarice, Donna Brazile and Jim McDermott would provide post-debate commentary (couldn't have a GOP debate without getting the views of a raving socialist for comic effect). I would have Jane do the radio broadcast.

Gmax

Including a fair number of congress critters.

As Rush was pointing out, they left out the following chart;

I was hoping never to read Jim McDermott's name again other than in an obit.

Frau Wilhelm Tell

matt is correct. It doesn't matter at all as long as the "good stuff" is available and social media replaces reality. Hay-ull *will* break out if the AC goes out in the hot months or the bennies don't arrive on time.

Right now, every school in Cleoville sports an official "Outstanding School" sign. Things are going great!
Who, me worry?

Frau Wilhelm Tell

@6:18 -Just seeing his name, CH, gives me flashback horrors.

Thomas Collins

Awright, CH and Frau. I'll bump McDermott from the panel and add Sheila Jackson Lee.

Ignatz

Let's say somehow congress was successful in defunding Barrycare.

What would he care? He'd simply declare it expedient in his judgement to move some money from some other congressional authorization, defense perhaps, and say he would have gone through congress but he didn't really feel like it and so he didn't.
What are they gonna do impeach him?

JiB,

If you hear anything more from your former construction friend, living in Egypt, (that you could safely pass on) I would love to hear it.

Lindsey Graham Challenger Calls Him A “Community Organizer For The Muslim Brotherhood”…

http://weaselzippers.us/2013/08/14/lindsey-graham-challenger-calls-him-a-community-organizer-for-the-muslim-brotherhood/

Danube of Thought

I think there are two problems with defunding: (1) I believe that a substantial part of the funding is provided for in the original legislation; and (2) to whatever extent it is defunded, its provisions, e.g. what coverages must be included in policies, the exchanges, the mandates etc. would still be the law. I think this would produce utter chaos, and it would be almost uniformly blamed on the defunders.

Let's let it progress into calamity all on its own.

Today in Portland,Maine,The Circus Conservatory of America announced it will be a tenant at the proposed $105M Thompson Point development.A spokeswoman for the city said..."it will be the first circus school in America where a bachelor's degree will be offered for that art form."
The commenters at the Bangor Daily are having fun thinking of the majors and minors that will be offered at Circus College. I think the banned for life rodeo clown should get the first honorary degree.

Clarice

hanks, TV.I'll start my Hillary style trim down, clean up campaign right now in preparation.
I want to find a sponsor for Jane --she has the best radio voice and style, doesn't she?

Threadkiller

From Janet's link:

“He is absolutely a fraud,” Beck concluded.  “I don’t know, he might be a better person than what they’ve portrayed, but he’s not who he says he is, in any way, shape, or form. He’s just not that guy. And he’s afraid.”

“What you should know today is the only reason why they’re going after the rodeo clowns and everything else is because they are freaked out you’re going to figure this out,” Beck said.

Insty links to a story explaining that General Wesley Clark, who left his wife of 45 years for “general indignities,” ran off with a 30 year old Mongolian gal, Shawna Mei, that he met at a Deepak Chopra Symposium.

I didn't know much about the Deep-packer, but this quote of his on his quote page pretty much explains it:

Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it's realistic or not.

Deepak Chopra

Here's Shawna

and her self description posted at AHAlife:

fashionista, curator, wellness addict, foodie, creative connector, design-obsessed, metaphysics, citizen of world, hunter of creativity.

Correction...Circus College will offer a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Circus Arts (contemporary circus performance).

Yes, but if she's not a fashionista, curator, wellness addict, foodie, creative connector, design-obsessed, metaphysics, citizen of world, or a hunter of creativity I doubt she's gonna' get the respect she deserves from the MSM.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

I thought I was getting dementia, and now I find out it's Friday. I am concerned.

Clarice, I was just thinking I need to find a new radio gig. I'm bored, and it is the perfect remedy to boredom.

Jane,you should fill-in for Howie Carr!

I thought the Clown College was in Baraboo, but apparently Ringling moved it to FL then closed it down in 97. There was a surplus of clowns in Clinton's second term, no need for a College. I would expect a bigger surplus now, maybe the new College is just a way to get them out of rodeos and into re-education.

narciso

Oh it would be Scanners all over the place, we've had our issues with Rubin, but they don't sack Sargent, the hackiest of hacks,

Extraneus

Can't believe Obama didn't pardon the rodeo clown yet.

What a douche bag.

(Spell check says that's not one word, at least without a hyphen, which is also hard to believe.)

And yes, Jane has a great voice in or out of radio!

"Flashback:"

Always nice to get the views of a Cold Case Posse veteran. Ms. Zebest thinks the Situation Room pic was photoshopped. Surprise! (In order to believe that you'd have to believe he never in the Situation Room at any time before, during or after the raid, not even to get his picture taken.)

I think he was absent much of the time because he's lazy, he was bored, and he hasn't a clue about how leaders behave.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

I can't believe all you people have heard my voice. That's funny, and flattering.

I think he was absent much of the time because he's lazy, he was bored, and he hasn't a clue about how leaders behave.

Me too - and utterly disinterested in his job.

If we are asked about her, let's all agree not to mention the Whoopie Pies.

Jane: Hugh Hewitt is lighting up Twitter right now, trying to coax Mark Steyn into running for Senate (State of NH). If Mark takes him up on it, that will cut down all the radio gigs he does as fill in for Rush and others.

Since we ALL know you WON Mr. Steyn's heart a few years ago, maybe he will recommend you to fill his radio gigs if he runs for Senate!

Bet my money on the Rodeo Clown

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face and mocked with the crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama?

BTW,

Here is Black Rodeo Clown Leon Coffee wearing a Hillary Clinton Mask in 2008:

Leon is in The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum Hall of Fame



Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Since we ALL know you WON Mr. Steyn's heart a few years ago,

Funny story about that. During the cruise the publisher reminded me of the year where everyone posed with a "Janewon" sign. There was a woman on the cruise named Cat, who was a liberal and accompanied her conservative mother. Anyway, Jack told me she was absolutely furious that Mark Steyn held that "Janewon" sign.

When I asked why she was furious he said: "Who cares, it was enough that she was furious."

Wonderful story Jane! So glad you pissed off the only Liberal on a ship full of conservatives. You go girl!

I see there is support for Jane filling in for Howie Carr when he is away. But that's backwards. Howie should be filling in for Jane when she is away!

matt

just off the phone with an Egyptian friend. The MB has caches of heavy weapons, AK's etc stashed all over Cairo and I would imagine other cities.

There are Chechens and Pakistanis and Afghans being arrested. Over the past two days 56 soldiers and police have been killed and hundreds wounded. This stuff has not yet been reported.

The MB has @ 20% support and have lost a tremendous amount of the conservative vote and would not win today. They know this is their last and only chance for power.

Egypt is the linchpin of the Middle east, and Obama and his administration are deeply loathed. Not the American people, but the Admin.

They are seen as fickle, indecisive and highly incompetent and as having supported the MB and helping to oppress dissent with the MB. Our standing as a government is as low as it has ever been and that is saying something.

Al Sissi has a huge following and is seen as the savior of the country by the masses. he is also willing to stand up to the USA. He is also cooperating very closely with the Israelis.

The feeling from my friend and his family, who are deeply involved at the highest levels in the country is that it will get worse before it gets better, but that it will get better. No one wants an Islamist society but a small minority. We'll see.

Filthy Filner...the hits keep coming

Old Lurker

They don't care whether Obamacare crashes and burns or even if it is partially defunded. The fact is the already messed up industry is now totally screwed (and screwed up) and as the Progs hoped all along, they will be happy to replace the 27,000++ pages of regs with the single payer system that was the objective anyway. They do not know which road to ruin will be followed, just that all roads go there now.

Thanks leaders.

Thanks SCOTUS.

narciso

That;'s my notion, as well, I'm not surprised there are foreign elements among the insurgents,
however we know that not a few midlevel officers, like Zamour who was the mastermind of the Sadat plot, Seif Al Adel, among others are drawn to those radical elements,

Someone needs to photoshop the picture of Obama flinching at the martial arts move into the situation room photo.

Thank you. That's fascinating.

TC have I told you lately that I love you!

Can anybody tell if the 59th annual stock show and rodeo at the at&t center in San Antonio in 2008 was the recipient of Public Funding?

If so, somebody needs to notify Harry Reid quick.

That's the Rodeo where the Black Rodeo Clown dressed up in the Hillary mask. Here's Leon's commercial advertising the Show and the importance of Rodeo Clowns.


I think within a few more hours of Internet sleuthing we might have video of the crowd urging on the Bull to knock the stuffing our of Hillary.

centralcal

... to knock the stuffing our of Hillary.

Nope, would never happen. When Hillary goes down those cankles go down with her. They cannot be knocked loose nor pared away.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

Daddy, did you ever find Cecil?

Clarice

Jane, it's in the back of my mind, and when the opportunity arises...

Matt, I think the MB will be crushed.

The washington Examiner informs that along with the Amish and Christian Scientists Muslims are also excluded from having to participate in Obamacare. As I see it, that leaves only the shnooks here picking up the tab.

Jane -May2014 Be there or Be Square

What is with Obama and the Muslims? I hope someday we find out.

JIB

This is a microcosm of what we are dealing with all the way to 2014 and 2016. There will be no let up and every little trickle of liberal irritant will be magnified 20X or more.

The only way to defeat this is to loudly say you are wrong and you are denying our rights to criticize. They will be relentless in blocking mine and your voice.

I will not be stopped.

Just finished reading all the comments and I continue to marvel at the depth and scope of intelligence on this blog.
cathyf: You are insightful and informative always.
Jane and rse: You both have lovely radio voices and should have your own shows. You can and do educate others in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
NK and CH; You two guys are two of my favorites in that your enthusiasm and spunky comments always hit the mark.
clarice: Your contributions are thought provoking and most informative and yes I do believe this site could have some in the administration nervous.
Janet: Your Beck link made my day. He is so right in his assessment of Obama. he is not the leader in that photo, and because of laziness and again Jane is correct in her belief that he just doesn't know how to behave in any situation.
matt: You always hit the nail on the head and are spot-on wrt what thekey points of each situation are.
gmax: I enjoy your posts immensely.
You have all said things I believe as well and after spending Friday evening with very liberal friends ,it is nice to return to a place of reason and sanity.

You're pretty good yourself, maryrose.

Levin is afraid that the tag team from Hell, Gaylord Focker and Reporting for Doody, through either malign intent or sheer ineptitude, may be enough to align Egypt with the Rooskis again. I'm sure Rodham's four year bender may have had a major impact as well. Smart diplomacy FTL.

Yes, that would be ironic twist, reversing the cycle the Saudis started 40 some years ago,

"The equanimity with which our current embarrassment of a President watches the possible disintegration of forty-years of work is stunning. He can barely be bothered to delay his tee time to issue some boilerplate blather about ending the state of emergency and beginning a "process of reconciliation." OK, back to the vacation. The current Egyptian government, yes, yes, unpleasant military types who probably never have been to Harvard, is in a battle for its life against the extremely unpleasant and murderous Muslim Brotherhood (MB)."

"It would be impossible to Photoshop Obama into any area he has not ever been in prior to the Photoshop."

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but if you're referring to my comment you've got it completely bass ackward. What I said was that to believe the SR picture was photoshopped you must also believe that Obama was NOT there at anytime during the raid. Because if he had been there he would have been photographed there, and there would be no need for photoshopping.

Ms. Zebest appears not to have considered this.

Clarice

Good night. Behave.

27_666_cathyf_hates_typepad_27

The picture is funny looking, but I think it might simply be the well-understood distortions of wide-angle lenses.

27_666_cathyf_hates_typepad_27

Obama is the person furthest away from the camera.

27_666_cathyf_hates_typepad_27

DoT, your theory makes no sense. If Obama was in and out of the room and missed the dramatic moment, a picture of him from before/after could have been photoshopped in.

If we could get Jane a national radio show on which she could read cathyf's post on Obamacare from the last thread there may be hope for the republic.

'You ask for Miracles, Theo' I give you Jennifer Rubin;

Then the gift with a big red ribbon arrived in the form of Sarah Palin’s pronouncement that Christie has too much schtick – if winning a blue state overwhelmingly is schtick, perhaps the whole party needs more of it — and is a “big government” Republican. Where she gets the latter from I am not sure.

27_666_cathyf_hates_typepad_27

(Had a company photo taken that way. We were never all in the office at one time, so the pictures were taken in several pieces and shopped together later.)

27_666_cathyf_hates_typepad_27

The best photoshops -- see Bert and Bin Laden -- are really really good. This picture looks funky enough that it might just be real.

"If Obama was in and out of the room and missed the dramatic moment, a picture of him from before/after could have been photoshopped in."

Who says the photo was taken at the dramatic moment (whatever that moment was)? It could have been taken at any moment in the long vigil. All we see is a group of people looking at somethig, presumably a screen.
