    I had no idea Zoph was so young!

    • “On this point, let me be crystal clear: we are generally talking about smarter taxes rather than higher taxes,” Lagarde said, according to prepared remarks for the launch of the book.

      Right. Why do people always say “let me be crystal clear” just before they tell a really big lie?

    Pelosi to Reporters on Midterm Election: ‘We Need You to Be Messengers…’
    When asked at a press briefing on Thursday why her party’s message is “not resonating with the electorate,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told a room full of reporters “we need you to be messengers.”

    Their party is so bereft of morality they have to beg their most fervent supporters to promote their phony agenda and continue the cover-ups.

    Eric Cantor Says He Will Resign From Congress Earlier Than Expected
    Cantor tells the newspaper he has asked Gov. Terry McAuliffe to call a special election for his district that coincides with the Nov. 4 general election. That would enable his successor to take office immediately.

    There can only be two explanations for this:
    1.He’s leaving early to troll K Street for a lobbying job
    2.More likely,he’s conspiring with the democrats to try to slip a ringer in for the lame duck session to help with the chaos planned by the outgoing losers.

    Iraqi Kurds Plead With Obama Admin For Arms To Defend Against ISIS
    When Sunni led ISIS came storming across Iraq, only one group succeeded in standing their ground against the Jihad masses, the Kurds.

    Now it’s being reported that the Kurds are appealing to Washington for meaningful military assistance in order to continue defending against ISIS.

    My heart aches for these people.They’ll fet nothing from us,however because our president is on the other team.

    • Absolutely. We have arms for the Saudis, the Syrian rebels, the Libyan embassy-raiders. Our State Dept has no clue who the good guys are. Chances of them answering the Kurds’ phone messages are ‘zero.’

  6. This still cracks me up.

  7. First Amendment hits new low. IRS paying Atheist group to monitor church sermons & homilies.

    Obamas Given Another Command Performance

    Well, the Obamas Thursday evening got another awesome musical performance staged just for them, this one justified by the presence of special Olympians who were honored at the White House.

    Pretty good camouflage. I mean, who could call them out for celebrating special Olympians?

    The Middle East in flames,alien hordes at the border,two doctors with deadly Ebola virus transported her from Africa
    The Entitlement Crew parties on

    The Obamas were treated to a private concert, along with special Olympians and other guests, by none other than the tireless Obama advocate Katy Perry. Not sure if anyone else performed. Stevie Wonder was in the house, so maybe they made him sing for them. The press was only invited in to see one Perry song.

    Oh,the untold hardship the Obama’s suffer for us.

    I sure hope this doesn’t get loose here. I hear that the U.S. is going to try an Ebola vaccine some time next month or so. Also, they are evacuating some 50 or so health workers as well. Sounds like the situation over there is pretty dang bad.

    U.S. health officials were scrambling on Friday to fetch two American patients infected with Ebola virus back from West Africa for treatment.

    The State Department said it was helping organize the evacuations over the “coming days”.

    “The State Department, together with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is facilitating a medical evacuation for two U.S. citizens who have been infected by Ebola in West Africa,” spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement.

    “The safety and security of U.S. citizens is our paramount concern. Every precaution is being taken to move the patients safely and securely, to provide critical care en route on a non-commercial aircraft, and to maintain strict isolation upon arrival in the United States…”

    • Pistol Pete says:

      Our government has assured us there’s no risk of an Ebola outbreak here.They wouldn’t lie to us,would they?

    • What A Hoot says:

      With a 90 % death rate these patients need to stay right where they are and can be airlifted out after they are proven to be one of the 10% survivors.

      Putting these people in a hospital is STUPID and excellerates the spread. It will dimish our already short supply of medical personel as they fall victim. Eventually, the hospitals will have to be closed to ALL sick people because they have become the major spread of the disease.

      History to something this virulent should be applied. NO ONE, no matter what the health problem if have any symptoms similar, are not admitted. Off-site hospital screening for this.

      When someone has symptoms an ‘X” is put on their door and supplies, including aggressive hydrations are dropped off. No one leaves or enters. The dead bodies, well, they cannot be buried via regular methods as the disease is suspected to be transferred from their fluids, clothes, etc., So, someone needs to be creative with some sort of injection family members give or coating they brush on and then maybe a portable insinerator. Sci-Fi? Not really.

      I cannot believe these contaminated people are allowed in the country!

    • What A Hoot says:

      Yep, airlift these people, who KNOW THE danger to everyone they come in contact with and KNOW they endanger an entire country. Airlift these these SELFISH people who when it comes right down to it are not the selfless do-gooder missionaries they thought themselves to be BUT DON”T get one marine our of Mexico who put his life on the line for the country; not shoot bullets into an American crowd and hope no one takes a bullet which is the equivelent to what these reckless, haughty, people are doing. Individual accountability. They will not take it. We all must pay for their ‘charity’.

    I hope others are as livid as I am about these *&%#@*% being hell-bent on kissing ilegalls’ rear ends.
    GOP leaders weren’t making any predictions after suffering an embarrassing conservative rebellion on Thursday, which forced them back to the drawing board, but rank-and-file lawmakers said they believed they had finally corralled enough votes to pass it.
    In order to attract enough support, Republicans also added in another bill that would halt President Obama’s non-deportation policy for so-called Dreamers, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
    The Senate has alreadt adjourned for 5 weeks so nothing could be sent to Obama anyway.So why did they do it?
    Rep. Phil Gingrey, Georgia Republican, said that at the very least the House had avoided a PR “disaster.”
    As if anything they pass would make a difference to Barry’s no-deportation policy.
