      That’s . . . kinda cool. Might try that, next time I have a cake that I’m not sharing. . .

      in the meantime, now I want cake. . . (please, ignore my whining today. It’s annoying even to me., . .)

  3. Zoph, you need silly? We got silly. 😀



    Well, maybe this one of Hillary is just scary… But excellent work from the Stoat Weasel!

  4. NBC is paying Chelsea Clinton big bucks to NOT appear on air. Is this just another laundering scheme to get cash to Hillary??

    Maybe… With these Chinese stories, which are about as reliable as tabloid stories, it’s hard to tell.

    one would expect the acting head of the completely corrupt IRS arm of the most powerful criminal organization in the world to be a smug,arrogant,maggot-infested pile of stinking rat doo doo.John Koskinen did not disappoint at todays House overdight hearings.Give the republicans credit for trying,but they know full well they’re face with a regime that lies at will,will admit to absolutely nothing and snicker quietly because they know nothing will happen as long as they protect the Tyrant and his merry band of scum.
    I don’t know how many youtubes you can post here but lets see what happens.

    The Kevin Brady clip is a short one:

    IRS to propose specific limits on nonprofits’ political activities
    House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) proposed a bill in January to stop the IRS from modifying its 501(c)(4) regulations for one year while Congress continued investigating the targeting matter. The House passed the measure in February with support from 14 Democrats, but the legislation has stalled in the Senate.

    it is a given that this will apply only to republicans and conservative groups.George Soros,Tom Steyer and labor unions will be exempted from these rules.or else not prosecuted.
    Nothing short of open rebellion can save us now.

    Senators propose 12-cent gas tax increase
    Tax revenue is down because people can’t afford to drive as it is.
    The plan offered by Sens. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., would raise the 18.4 cents-a-gallon federal gas tax and 24.4 cents-a-gallon diesel tax each by 12 cents over the next two years, and then index the taxes to keep pace with inflation. The increase would be applied in two increments of 6 cents each.

    The plan also calls for offsetting the tax increases with other tax cuts. Senators said that could be done by permanently extending six of 50 federal tax breaks that expired this year, but they indicated they would be open to other suggestions for offsets.

    Keep a sharp eye peeled for those “tax cuts.”
    They claim to need more money for road repair(read:fatten union coffers) and they NEVER consider cutting spending.
    Meanwhile they’re still tooling around in government cars with taxpayer-funded drivers.

    From the sublime to the ridiculous:
    ‘Every kid needs a taste of real hard work’: Why President Obama wants Malia and Sasha to work ‘unfair and un-fun’ minimum-wage jobs
    Obama once scooped ice cream and waited tables, and the first lady worked at a book binding shop
    Malia was recently spotted on the set of CBS, working as a production assistant for a day
    If either of those two parasites ever worked a real job it was only for maybe a day or so to see how the unwashed have to live.

      Slumming for the cameras. No worries. They won’t spend more than a couple of hours there (if at all) and won’t get their royal hands dirty.
      This BS is just plain insulting! Unless you NEED that job it’s a totally meaningless gesture. Send them to Saudi Arabia with no money, no royal ID, and no Secret Service. They’ll get a good lesson there.

    “CRAZY 360”. That should be the name of a TV show depicting outrageous happenings like this one. Crazy all the way around from any angle you look.

    Woman faces life in prison for stopping car to help ducks and causing crash that kills two

    • This is really tragic, but people do this kind of thing all the time, such as swerving to avoid a rabbit and crashing into a tree. I guess the only thing to do is rehearse what you would do in certain situations and try to not be an idiot when the time comes. I rehearse trying to avoid things that would really embarrass me all the time. Like:

      1. Not shooting myself in the leg during a holster draw.
      2. Not glancing at beautiful women on the street and rear-ending a bus full of nuns.
      3. Not cutting my arm off on the bench saw while there’s no one at home to say “I told you so” while they’re driving me to the ER.
      4. Not driving home drunk with my secretary Mary Jo Kepechne and driving off a bridge and leaving her to drown while I figure out how to save my political career. Wait! Ha ha! No, that’s what Ted Kennedy should have rehearsed.

    ‘In their final declaration, signed by more than 130 rulers from around the world, the regimes called for what amounts to global tyranny, central planning, and massive wealth redistribution from Western taxpayers to oppressive Third World governments. Everything must be in “harmony” with “Mother Earth” under a “sustainable” UN “international climate change regime,” they said. From a stronger UN better able to implement its “mandates” to empowering the UN General Assembly as an “emblem of global sovereignty” and advancing a global reserve currency run by the IMF, the radical screed demands a dramatic planetary transformation…’

    “The conference, held in late May, was convened by Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, who married into the infamous, unimaginably wealthy Rothschild banking dynasty that extracted much of its obscene fortune from humanity using the coercive power of government. Attendees and speakers included Prince Charles, International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde (shown), former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Bank of England boss Mark Carney, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, and more. Also in attendance: pension-fund bosses, Big Business CEOs, and other top figures representing an estimated one third of the world’s investable wealth. Among the “supporting organizations” for the summit were the CIA-linked Ford Foundation and the globalist Rockefeller Foundation…”

    “On Sunday night, two minivans full of armed terrorists entered the town of Mpketetoni and began shooting. At the local hotel, the terrorists pulled the men out, lined them up and ordered the women to watch as they killed the men. Then the gunmen began going door to door through the village – at each home they asked if the inhabitants were Muslims, when the families would reply that they were Christian, the terrorists killed them…”

    Truth read.

    “And there may be several reasons for this. One, moderate Muslims really may not exist. Perhaps that is the reason. Or two, if they do exist, they rightly know that if they do speak up, they could well lose their heads – literally. That is also telling: Islam is so bad, that those who prefer real tolerance, civilization and basic humanity are too terrified to speak up…”

  21. Knight4GFC says:

    “Sometimes violence, even murder, isn’t the worst thing you can do to a fellow human being.
    Stealing his soul, taking over the management of his conscience and his mind—those are worse. America reached that depth of wickedness recently when the Colorado “Civil Rights” Commission ordered a Christian baker and his employees (including his 87-year-old mother) to undergo “sensitivity training” until they are proved to be “rehabilitated” from their religious beliefs. This was because the baker declined to make a cake for a lesbian parody of a wedding—which would have entailed his knowing participation in a third party’s act of sin…”

    House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., led the grilling of Gina Farrisee, the VA’s assistant secretary for human resources and administration, zeroing in on a bonus system that saw about $10 million awarded to executives at the Phoenix VA Health Care System alone over a three-year period. In total, the VA gives out an estimated $400 million per year in performance bonuses.

    “Knowing what we know now, about the fraudulent actions being taken at facilities all across this country that have harmed our veterans, do you think that the department’s assessment that 100 percent of senior managers at VA have been fully successful in the past four years is in line with reality?” Miller asked…
