Gruntington Post – FOLLOW-UP REPORT: Whatever happened to the intrepid “Denver Horse-Man” who braved throngs of liberal zombies and aggressive Secret Service agents in downtown Denver last week to shake hands with Barack Obama?
In the few weeks since his brush with national fame, the horse-man’s life has taken a tragic turn, unfortunately. Witnesses say that the presence of the horse-man visibly startled the President during their brief encounter. After initially laughing off the embarrassment, Obama was seen whispering something to one of his Secret Service agents, and the horse-man was immediately taken into custody. He was then seen by no one for several days. According to his veterinarian, John Hicks, DVM, of Deer Trail, Colorado, the horse-man was eventually discovered wandering feverishly in a nearby pasture with a few unrelated Morgan horses.
Although the creature showed numerous injuries, including a broken leg, which were apparently acquired in custody, the veterinarian stated that no formal complaint would be lodged with the Federal Government. “We eventually had to euthanize the poor creature,” said Dr. Hicks. “It wasn’t the injuries. He would have healed up just fine, and we don’t shoot horses anymore for broken legs. But once you tangle with the Administration, an IRS incident is pretty much a given. People can handle audits and survive, but you can’t expect an animal to deal with the IRS. It’s just not humane.”

  1. Yesterday, the UN voted on whether to investigate potential Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Only one country voted no.

      I honestly have no idea why we’re still involved with a corrupt bunch of thieves who’s main purpose seems to be taking vast sums of money from the American taxpayer and hosting various and sundry murderers and miscreants.

    Obama supports Hawaii’s governor in radio ad

    HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie launched a radio ad Wednesday featuring President Barack Obama supporting the governor’s bid for re-election.

    In the ad, Obama uses the Hawaiian word for family, saying Abercrombie is “like ohana to me.” The president says Abercrombie knew his parents “before I was a twinkle in their eye.”

    Unusual.This election cycle most democrats are avoiding any connection to the Bamster like an ugly prom date.

    Sources: Militia blamed for Benghazi attack moved next door to US Consulate before strike
    There’s not a doubt in my mind that Killary knew this before she pulled the US Marines off that were guarding the embassy and replaced them with Libyan militia/terrorists.
    Ambassador Stevens tried in vain to get better security because he probably foresaw something bad happening.

    Texas Motorist Wins $77,500 After Traffic Cops Steal Cash
    Estelline, Texas settles with innocent, elderly motorist who had her cash seized during a traffic stop.

    Police in Estelline, Texas are sorry they ever pulled over Laura Dutton. The 64-year-old woman was stopped on November 28, 2012 as she was returning from a trip to Amarillo on US Highway 287. Police Officer Jayson Fry, the city’s lone officer, was manning a speed trap a few feet away from the sign marking the speed limit drop when she passed through Estelline.
    sounds like this is a classic small-town speed trap.

    I generally support law enforcement but there seem to be more and more incidents lately where they are clearly in the wrong.

    Obama: Let’s not live out ‘Scandal’
    Speaking at the fundraiser, he urged donors to turn out in the midterm elections, saying Republicans have larger turnouts on Election Day, and that resulted in the GOP taking control of the House and leading to John Boehner’s role as Speaker of the House.

    “What happened to Nancy Pelosi?” Obama said. “What happened is, y’all didn’t vote. And that’s when all kinds of … stuff happened. That’s what it was, stuff.”
    Those darn republicans won’t give me everything I want.Don’t they know I won??

    Rep. Gowdy’s restraint is remarkable.I’d have crawled over the desk,grabbed that bald-headed little turd and gave him a good old country butt-whoopin’.This is really worth watching.

    Ingraham: Paul Ryan Should Replace His Staff With ‘Cheaper Foreign Labor’
    In a tweet last week, radio’s Laura Ingraham taunted House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), a top champion of immigration reform, saying that because he supports raising immigration levels, he should take the first step and replace his congressional staff with foreign workers.

    He represents the district just north of me over the Illinois state line.He never was what you would consider a real conservative.After 6 terms he’s become a card-carrying member of the GOP-e.

    Hillary Claimed Bill Was Addicted To Sex Because Of Childhood Abuse From His Mom
    According to a Daily Mail report, Hillary made the claims that her mother-in-law, Virginia Kelley, abused Bill during his childhood in an interview with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Lucinda Franks. Franks, however, refused to use the quotes for her article in Talk magazine — instead, she waited 15 years to release the interview in her latest memoir, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau and Me.”
    Well,I guess that makes everything Sir William The Impeached did acceptable.He could find more feminine company than Cankles at the nearest TV bar.

  9. At a special session of Congress on 2 April 1917, President Wilson referred to American merchant ships taking supplies to the Allies which had been sunk during the previous month by German submarines (operating a counter-blockade; the British and French fleets having blockaded the Central Powers from the beginning of the war); and then told Congress that “wonderful and heartening things have been happening within the last few weeks in Russia.”He asked for a declaration of war with a mission:for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal dominion of right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world itself at last free.To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace that she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other. (emphasis supplied)That night crowds filled the streets, marching, shouting, singing Dixie” or “The Star Spangled Banner.” Wilson turned to his secretary, Tumulty: “Think what that means, the applause. My message tonight was a message of death, How strange to applaud that!”

    • Where has my America gone?

      • barnslayer says:

        Regarding the quote that “wonderful things have been happening within the last few weeks in Russia”… Sounds like a typical progressive political comment from our current WH. Odd for Wilson to speak of freedom and the communist revolution in the same breath… Or not so odd?

  10. You may be right Barn. I was reading about this and it sounded like what Wilson was referring to was the “loans” to Russia which were favorable to the Zionist Jewry movement and towards the reaching of their goals. Of course Wilson was probably thinking of other advantages and didn’t see that he was actually just a pawn or maybe a bishop at most.

    “The Zionists were, of course, coordinating their activities internationally. On the same day as the meeting in London, Rabbi Stephen Wise in the United States wrote to Brandeis: “I sent the memorandum to Colonel House covering our question, and he writes: ‘I hope the dream you have may soon become a reality.” 
    The reports reaching England of impending dissolution of the Russian state practically removed the need for Russian endorsement of Zionist aims, but made French and Italian acceptance even more urgent. This at any rate was the belief of Sykes, Balfour, Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, who, as claimed in their subsequent statements, were convinced that proclaimed Allied support for Zionist aims would especially influence the United States.
    Events in Russia made the cooperation of Jewish groups with the Allies much easier. At a mass meeting in March 1917 to celebrate the revolution which had then taken place, Rabbi Stephen Wise, who had succeeded Brandeis as chairman of the American Provisional Zionist Committee after Brandeis’s appointment to the Supreme Court, said: “I believe that of all the achievements of my people, none has been nobler than the part the sons and daughters of Israel have taken in the great movement which has culminated in free Russia.” 
    Negotiations for a series of loans totalling $190,000,000 by the United States to the Provisional Government in Russia of Alexander Kerensky were begun on the advice of the U.S. ambassador to Russia, David R. Francis, who noted in his telegram to Secretary of State Lansing, “financial aid now from America would be a master-stroke. Confidential. Immeasurably important to the Jews that revolution succeed…”

  11. Consider this: Journalists in the old Soviet Union had to be coerced into protecting the regime. Ours volunteer for the duty.
