    I’m betting the Just-Us brothers won’t be heading to sunny FL for this one. πŸ™„

      We’ll see how much time that Ft. Hood moslem gets for “workplace violence”.

      • I don’t think he should do any time. They should just turn him over into the keeping of the surviving family members. They’d take good care of him. Same as he did to their loved ones. πŸ‘Ώ

        • barnslayer says:

          Ideally yes. I read somewhere this ordeal from capture till now is has taken longer than our involvement in WW2. Difference is our gov’t wanted to win that one.

    There seem to be divisions in the “politburo.” Have you seen the ant-Clinton articles coming out from the Left?

    • IKWYM! This is driving me crazy! I don’t know what the game is. It really could be that the press is dis-infatuated with Hillary (finally). But things are so complicated. She obviously has made a deal with the Obama camp in the Politburo to run for POTUS in 2016, and he’s supporting her on the surface, as is the party. But the two sides seem to hate each other and function strangely together, almost as if they are working at cross-purposes. Is Barack & Co. trying to end-run his promise to her by setting her up (Benghazi) or setting his other minions on her (the press)? Or are they really in happy cahoots, and all this is somehow for show? What’s your take? Anybody else? I’m confused.

      • texan59 says:

        While I’m not the sharpest crayon in the box, I think that Hill & Co. want to get all this out front. A lot of pundits seem to be pushing this meme as well. Just read an article in Salon interviewing that mainstream feminist Camille Paglia and here are her thoughts on the Pantsuit Princess –

        “As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s. A governor with executive experience would be ideal. It’s time to put my baby-boom generation out to pasture! We’ve had our day and managed to muck up a hell of a lot. It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton (born the same year as me) is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished β€” beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move β€” with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts.”

        So, who knows at this juncture. I heard Eric Bolling on The Five say that he thinks she could raise $2B, and if so, it may not matter what anyone thinks.

        I’m confused.

        • I’m just skeptical of the “getting it all out now” theory. For one thing, some of these criticisms on the left are not of that nature. Those tend to pump up while they’re exposing. “Can Hillary survive scandal X? Maybe if she takes my advice and does Y.” But all this criticism is more like “Hillary: Nail meet coffin.” It just doesn’t feel right. I suspect that she’s being stillettoed in the back and hung out for permanent drying as crow-fodder by the other camp, but they’re not done using her yet.

          I guess it’s possible that this fund-raising scandal is a preemptive move, but it’s just hard to believe they’d purposely break a story on themselves at this point, especially one involving legal and incarceration risk. But who knows? I’m always wrong on these things, so you should always bet on the theory I hate the most. πŸ˜‰

            I posted a link at PN yesterday from ultra-lib Maureen Dowd who was all in for Sir William the impeached at one time.Maybe she realized they’re just Arkansas grifters who care about nothing but getting money without working for it.

            • Could be. If so, it took long enough for them to figure it out. Maureen’s not that bright, even compared to the other brain-trusters at the NYT. Like Paul Krugman. How does that imbecile still have a job that doesn’t involve walking the White Hut dogs and cleaning up their poop?

  4. Wash Times – After President Obama waded into the Trayvon Martin shooting death and subsequent acquittal of George Zimmerman, critics of the president wonder whether he’ll also address the senseless killing of an Australian college student in Oklahoma last week.
    On Twitter, former Rep. Allen B. West, Florida Republican, hinted that there may be a racial double standard at play, given the lack of outrage from Mr. Obama and civil rights leaders.
    West said: β€œThree black teens shoot white jogger. Who will [Mr. Obama] identify w/ this time?”

  5. Pistol Pete says:

    If I may:

    Teach these hairy-palmed perverts to shoot.Thats a good idea.sarc./off
