Does anyone think that Dennis hastert would be getting this kind of coverage, much less prosecution, if he had been a former Dem Speaker of the House?


Now if this were a Republican family, you can bet on not only investigations, and leaks to the press but also prosecution from an Austin Texas prosecutor...

One of the most depressing things for me about Ogabe and his minions is that just when you think they've reached rock bottom, they prove you wrong the very next day.

Does anyone have any doubt that a Despicable She® presidency will be any different? Just when you think the stench of corruption can't get any more vile and pungent, you'll be proven wrong. Again and again.

The treatment of Palin versus the gumshoe work on Obama should answer your inquiry.

It also very nicely clears head space for those bringing up Willie's appropriateness as First Dude. 'Hastert did worse!!'

Quite the coinkydink.

Captain Hate

I'm waiting for Lynch to drop the hammer on the Clinton Crime Family Foundation because NK told us she was such a great candidate for Attorney General and deserving of GOPe approval which was provided in their usual quisling style.

Jack is Lightning⚡️

Hastert evidently was involved with a young man before he became a congressman but Gerry Studds was doinking a boy page in Congress and got re-elected. I am sure that in every story about Hastert the press will also remind us of Studds and his blatant indiscretion.

Then we have Barney Frank running a homo bodello out of his townhouse on Capital Hill.

You'll be reading a lot about that in the Hastert coverage in case you haven't heard about it before.


Caitlyn Jenner looks absolutely stunning on the cover of Vanity fair.Honestly,if I had a few bevys in me I'd probably bang her.

This is what Conservatism that's been beaten and destroyed looks like.It's important that you know this because sometimes in your hermetically sealed group where you create a world for yourselves that doesn't actually exist it's easy to miss your own down fall.

Liberalism is a party where everyone is invited to come as they are no matter how distasteful our most conservative attendee's might find it. And it's a party where you're encouraged to let your hair down and try some-uhm-oysters OR snails OR even both.

Welcome to the party, pal....

Captain Hate

Wasn't the excuse peddled for Barney's Frank's indiscreet illegal activities that he was under the influence of drugs at the time? As if that should exonerate anybody.

Here's one of the problems, one of the big problems I have with the PATRIOT Act. We now use parts of the PATRIOT Act to arrest people for domestic crime. Section 213 "Sneak and peek" where the government can come into your house, place listening devices and never announce that they were ever in your house and then leave and then monitor your behavior and never let you know they've been there, is being used 99.5% of the time for domestic crime. 

So little by little, we've allowed our freedom to slip away. We allow the Fourth Amendment to be diminished. We allowed the narrowing loss of something called probable cause

Randing and raving like a lunatic.


Imagine the millions in asset forfeiture they lose with a two day sabbatical. Rand Paul is a cop hater.


Lynch endorsement? I never had a case with her and she was very low profile as Eastern District US Atty, so other than being a typical urban Lib, didn't know anything about her. Going to the wall and demanding Repub Senators who had no objection to her or worry about re-election black vote turn out? I wouldn't have held them hostage to a no vote, no.
The Budget had to be passed and an Iran deal worked out, and hopefully ObummerCare repeal when King v Burwell is decided.

2 years in prison for Bob McDonnell

"McDonnell was convicted in September on 11 counts tied to a public corruption indictment handed up last January, shortly after he left office as Virginia’s 71st governor. The indictment charged him with accepting more than $150,000 in gifts and loans from a wealthy businessman in exchange for helping the man promote his company."

the businessman didn't get any government position....he didn't get any contracts with the state of Virginia...


McDonnel's biggest mistake was accepting less tha $150 mllion unless he wanted to get caught.


How many years in prison did Sandy Berger get for stealing & destroying national security documents? I forget.

Good Morning!

In solidarity with Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn Jenner, I think we should all come up with what names we would like to be called when we change sexes. For instance, I'm thinking:
Miss Bruce Marple,
Clarice Fred Feldman,
and Tom Tiffany Maguire.

Over to you Iggy Isadora!

Just a suggestion of course, and open to change, but thought I'd toss it out there for discussion.


Mr Dobbs:

Interesting article. It's pretty clear that an interested prosecutor could have a lot of stuff to chew through, should they ever try to investigate the Clinton Foundation. Problem is, it's politically impossible for anyone to investigate the Clintons, unless the press, en masse, does it. And they won't.

Dems cannot let Justice do the investigation I expect at least some prosecutors want because they lose their only viable Presidential candidate.

Repubs, when it comes to the Clintons, shot their...bolt back in the 90s with impeachment. It does not matter that so much of the sleazyness (beginning with the pardons) post-dates impeachment. So, I think GOP will not go after the Clintons should they win in 2016.

Jack is Lightning⚡️


Don't worry all those McConnell and Berger indiscretions will be included in the hard hitting journalism you are about to read about Hastert. Well, maybe not Berger.

Wonder if Hastert used email?


daddy at 4:12:



Had just read the VF blurb, daddy, and was thinking what a sad, painful way to go through life and then to listen to how they overcompensate about how wonderful it all is and sweep under the rug those feelings of "what the hell did I just do?"
It's like any other life changing, irreversible decision a friend makes that is obviously a disaster. What do you say when they justify and rationalize and try to positively spin the disaster they're wrought? Just nod your head, smile and think "you poor dumb sap, we both know this is crazy but I can't tell you it is without making things worse."

You forgot to post the lastest GDP, DublinDave. I can't find the figure anywhere on the web, care to share it with me?

Wasn't the excuse peddled for Barney's Frank's indiscreet illegal activities that he was under the influence of drugs at the time?

Yes Captain, except that he was totally unable to recognize marijuana, especially when he was shocked that the Police discovered it growing in his back yard.

BTW, Last night for the 2nd weekend in a row, starting about 7 PM on Sunday nights on AM Radio Talk channel 700 up her, we get an hour of some new program called the National Marijuana News.

Here's the link: The National Marijuana News

It is a very slick production, obviously well funded. It tells us on the radio and at it's website that:

The National Marijuana News offers all sides of this complex and contentious prohibition issue. We take a totally UNBIASED approach at bringing you the news and the newsmakers on all sides of the issues. We cover politics, science, medicine, law, business, culture and lifestyle. No subject off-limits from either side of the debate.

On yesterday's show they had on a guest who aid all humans need 65 units of cannabinoids per day to remain healthy, and there was much more totally UNBIASED commentary throughout the Show.

If it's playing up here on Sunday nights for an hour on Local Talk, I suspect it's playing in your neighborhoods as well. I can't tell who funds them, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least to find out you and me are via our tax dollars.

Anyone know anything about this bunch? The bio's of their reporters read's like the bit players in a Cheech and Chong movie:

Todd Denkin---President | Host:
former Casting Director and Talent Manager for Nickelodeon...and TV’s Bloopers & Practical Jokes

Eddie Bernard---Producer
a PA for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2004 and as an intern for The Howard Stern Show in 2005

Darian Cowgill---Recording Engineer
an independent record producer for the American rock band Oedipus

Martín Wagmaister---Executive Producer
writes and produces a hip-hop/R&B mixshow in conjunction with Coca-Cola called The Coca-Cola Open Happiness Mixshow, the most popular radio show in Nigeria.

Kyle Kushman---West Coast Correspondent
12-time Medical Cannabis Cup medal winner. He currently holds two US Cannabis Cups for Best Flowers,

Anybody have any info on this?


I'm down but I was really hoping for leila.

 daddy  Mathilda Ann


If you want to call yourself Leila I'd recommend taking that issue up with Larry Kreig in a Toilet Stall at the Boise airport.

Please note carefully that a number of those Mary Jane reporters are ex-children/teenager TV programmers. And we are only worried about Catholic priests.

Beasts of England

The guy with two Cannibas Cups is named Kushman? Gotta be a nic...


"Will the IRS investigate possible violations?"

I'm sure they can't free up any staff because of the evil Rethuglican budget cuts.


Mathilda Ann,

Larry employs his wide stance in the Minneapolis airport, not the local facilities.

I can say that I've (reluctantly) shook the ex-Senator's hand on a few occasions at BSU functions. I couldn't get to the washroom quick enough.


Mrs. Dobbs,
I didn't read your link about Hilligula's response. I'm assuming it goes something like this, "what difference at this point does it make."
There will be no IRS investigation by the current scumbags at Justice.
I see it every day at work, lThere are rules that need to be enforced, but just don't bother me with them."

(A)Nuther Bub

Wouldn't you have to be "momma," daddy?

 daddy  Mathilda Ann


Seriously, from reading their bio's and listening to as much of the facts put out in Marijuana Radio Show as I could stand, I couldn't tell if they were serious or a deadpan comedy skit not to be taken seriously---except that with the slickness and cost of production you have to conclude that they're serious.

It came across as nothing but an unvarnished effort to win votes across the country in order to legalize Marijuana smoking and production in all 50 states.


Great question, (A)B.

I don't undersrtand this NSA kerfuffle. When has Obama and his regime ever listened to Congress and didn't just issue and EO when they disagree. I don't think anything changes. If I was POTUS I would tell the NSA to continue as usual and let Congress shit itself and sue me.

Why is this any different than immigration?

Miss Marple


My theory is that Obama wants to leave us open to terrorism, so is letting Rand Paul do the dirty work while he says,"Wait. No. You really should pass this" in a very, very soft voice.

There is a stay against Obummer's illegal amnesty, and NSA types could be prosecuted for snooping without statutory PA immunity.

Holding hostage versus shameless pandering to a group of people who won't vote for you anyway while not doing a fucking thing for the people who did vote for you? Sounds like Rove's 2006 strategy. I hope it gets the same result. To hell with the GOP.


Eric Bolling just clobbered Kimberly Guilfoyle(the same chick that used to bang Gavin Newsome) on the Fourth Amendment.

As her fake breasticals were exhaling the last gasp of her non-argument, she belched out "I don't have time to explain to you what you learn in three years of law school..."

She must have been a student of ECL.


I was banging Gavin way before her!!

jimmyK-- was Brooks referring to Holder's shameless cover up operation at DOJ? Let's start with the Cabinet level and Hilligula's deliberate violation of the records keeping act, and the EPA Administrator's private email account? The list works down from there and is long.


"not transy or feminine enough to post here..."

I've heard that from the locals. I expect to improve my gender affiliation by posting often at great length to blend in with the general population. I often fail.


Did Bruce already chop off his penis?...or is that gonna happen later?
Did Diane Sawyer ask him about THAT? Has anyone in the MFM asked what confused young people being exposed to this insanity might do? Does anyone care?

More Carbon Footprint:

Massive military transport plane that usually carries 100 troops picks up US Secretary of State John Kerry to bring him home after he breaks his leg cycling

Kerry's ride home.

Kerry's Helo' ride to his Jumbo-jet

The only decent thing I can see from this entire idiocy, is that all the news stories now carry this paragraph:

Kerry regrets not being able to make the rest of his scheduled stops, Kirby said. The top U.S. diplomat had planned to travel later Sunday to Madrid for meetings with Spain's king and prime minister, before spending two days in Paris for an international gathering to combat IS.

Kerry will participate in the Paris conference remotely, Kirby said.

That tells us that 99% of all this flying around to conferences is all boondoggles and BS, and it all could be done on the cheap via Teleconferencing, which makes sense, since that's what we've spent Billions on these last few years---making sure everyone has the ability to "Teleconference", yet for some reason nobody ever does "Teleconferencing."

Hell, Hillary's only claim to fame is that she flew around the planet in lieu of Teleconferencing."

Weekly Standard reports today that US Taxpayers just paid $21,000 for Bill Clinton's Security Detail's Hotel rooms in Morocco last month.

Can you imagine how much money we could actually save if we made it a practice to "Tele-Conference" when able? I bet it'd be in the Billions, if not high hundred Millions per year.

". . . transsexualism was invented by psychiatrists. . . .You fundamentally can’t change sex … the surgery doesn’t alter you genetically. It’s genital mutilation. My ‘vagina’ was just the bag of my scrotum. It’s like a pouch, like a kangaroo. What’s scary is you still feel like you have a penis when you’re sexually aroused. It’s like phantom limb syndrome. It’s all been a terrible misadventure. I’ve never been a woman, just Alan . . ."

"A bump in the road.... who remembers that calloused statement?
I do recall, the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road." Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives. At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes. He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON).
We're the battling boys
of Benghazi
No fame, no glory,
no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death
in a blazing hell
Defending our country
we loved so well.
It wasn't our job,
but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate
and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen
from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety,
and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us,
and foes by the score,
But we stood fast
to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement,
but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought,
and we fought 'til we died.
We gave our all
for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama
didn't give a damn.
Just two dead seals
who carried the load
No thanks to us.........
we were just "Bumps In The Road".
So will this reach every American with a computer?
Or do we act like the press and give them a pass.
The Obama Administration obviously won't be held accountable because we apparently accept Hilary Clinton's statement, "What difference does it make?"

Janet's 5:46 is exactly correct. The Bangor Daily recently had a story about a transgendered student at a Maine school who is happy now that he/she/it has come out as transgendered or "non-binary". What 14 year old kid knows what non-binary means??!!! A psychiatrist must be involved. This is all part of the process of normalization.
