Some reprobate democrat senator is waging a war on women, and my junior Senator, Kristen Gillibrand, is protecting, him or her, from Moe Lane, Red State:

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is giving more details, and dropping f-bombs, about her experience with sexist comments she’s received about her weight, saying she couldn’t tell a male colleague “to go f—- himself.”

“At that moment, if I could have just disappeared, I would have. If I could have just melted in tears, I would have. But I had to just sit there and talk to him. And I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f—- himself,” Gillibrand told HuffPost Live in an interview posted Monday.

Look Gillie, this is a matter of personal integrity, or your personal lack thereof. If you refuse to stand-up tos this democrat reprobate, Dirty Harry Reid, Chuckie Schumer, Mrs. Clinton or Little Dickie Durbin perhaps, you can not be depended t5o stand-up for the citizens of New York Stte, who you purport to represent.

John “Waffles” Kerry continues to wage his never ending war with his own mouth, from CBS News:

Secretary of State John Kerry backtracked on the language he had used to describe the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL), saying in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that, “we are at war” with the group.

“I think there’s frankly a kind of tortured debate going on about terminology,” said Kerry, who rejected the word “war” in an interview with CBS News State Department correspondent Margaret Brennan last week and warned that people shouldn’t get “war fever.”

Forbes Kerry can not keep clear thought from one interview to the next. He is incapable of understanding foreign policy, much less representing, or heaven forbid, actually explaining it.

snark2.jpgSnark of the Day from Tom Maquire: Just One Minute:

The Times noted that our Arab allies seem a bit tentative. No kidding – Obama and Kerry were wrong about the surge in ’07, wrong about the Iraqi troop withdrawals in ’11, wrong to walk away from post-Qadaffi Libya in ’11, wrong not to arm the moderate Syrian rebels in ’11, wrong to draw a faux red line in 2013, and now no one will get behind him? The headless chickens have come home to roost.

Dim Won and Lurch, quite the pair.

Barack Hussien Obama calls himself both a lawyer and professor or constitutional law.   I have my doubts.   To a sober lawyer, words have meanings, precise meaning.   To the regime words simply mean what ever the regime decides they mean at the moment, from John Hinderaker, Power Line:

The Obama administration has doggedly refused to call what it proposes to do in Syria and Iraq a “war,” a fact that I found odd but hadn’t thought much about. Why is Obama so determined to avoid the word “war”?

[...]

Of course. Obama and his minions may not think much about defeating our enemies, but they are implacable when it comes to what they really care about–distinguishing themselves from George W. Bush. It’s pretty much all they have left.

Calling a dog turd a flower, does not mean it does stink.  Calling Marie Harf. the info babe,  a State Department spokes person does not make anything other than yet another dumb blond.

The Obama regime has but one enemy, the English language.  It is no wonder they are so fond of the Reverend Al Sharpton.

That phrase…. never forget… wasn’t for those who died.
It was for those left behind.
Then we forgot anyway. We decided to follow someone who told us we didn’t need to be the world’s policeman.. that our responsibility in the middle east was over… that if we just apologized to everyone, we’d be safe.

We are now paying the price for that. Reality is seldom forgiving, that way.  It usually comes in the form of a painful reminder.

The Obama regime makes the Nixon administration look like Boy Scouts, from Gatewy Pundit:

video:

text:

During another grueling hearing on the ObamaCare rollout, the head of the IRS tried to offer lawmakers an assurance about the soon-to-open enrollment period.

“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who leads the subcommittee, immediately expressed his concern with the remarks.
“I encourage you to follow the law in all instances,” Brady said.

If I were but emperor, I’d throw both John Koskinen and Lois Learner in jail and release them “whenever I could.”   So if Koskinen is not guided by the law, by what is he guided?

Eric Florack on September 10th, 2014

Obama’s speech making is well known. We already know he campaigns well… its one of the few talents ha has shown us, and I suppose this to be little else, tonight. He’s in trouble and knows it. That is what drove him to this point.

But lets get real, here.

The speech doesn’t matter, and changes nothing absent some trust in what he’s saying.
The American people do not trust the man, if you read the polling data. Our once-allies don’t trust him either, or at the least, take little of what he says seriously. Our enemies don’t either.

Given what he now says is a complete turnaround from what he was telling us mere days ago, and given his long and well documented history of policy blunders, half truths outright lies, and poll following, on what basis should we trust what he says this time? On what basis may we see his words tonight as being any more trustworthy than he has consistently shown himself to be?

Want to play a round of golf at a private club over Labor Day Weekend in New York City, you need a reservation, if if you are the Duffer in Chief, by Kelly Cohen, Washington Examiner:

President Obama was turned down by several top golf courses in New York over Labor Day weekend that didn’t want to deal with the hassle of a presidential visit.

[...]

Clubs were given just a day or two notice to fill the request, according to sources. Fairview Country Club in Greenwich was the only club that would have accommodated him, a spokesman said.

President Obama does not so much like to play golf as likes to be seen playing golf.

I join the civilized world is being sickened by domestic violence, TMZ:

This is what a two game suspension looks like — Ray Rice delivering a vicious punch to his fiancee’s face, knocking her out cold … and TMZ Sports has the shocking video.

We’ve already shown you the aftermath outside the elevator … Rice dragging the unconscious woman on the floor. But we’ve now obtained video of the punch that put her down, raising the question … What was the NFL thinking when it wrist-slapped Rice with such feeble punishment?

The incident took place Feb. 15th at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City — after Ray and then-fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer got into a heated argument on their way into the elevator.

Inside the elevator it’s apparent he strikes first … she hits back … and then Rice delivers the knockout blow.

I don’t know what planet TMZ thinks it is orbiting, but I find domestic violence almost as shocking as gambling at Rick’s. TMZ seems to think that the NFL response to the video as inadequate. Then why should the NFL care more about domestic violence between Janay and Ray Rice than the couple itself does. Until such time as Janay Rice shows that she cares about domestic violence, I frankly don’t care what happens to her. If Mrs. Rice wakes up with two black eyes, or worse, that her her problem. I don’t want to waste my time, and risk my life, caring about women that don’t care about themselves.

Aside to Governor wanna be President Fatboy,  Janay Rice was criminally assaulted in your state, what do you intend to do?

Addendum:    Mike Lupica,  Daily News (NY):

Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, admitted last week he got it wrong with Ray Rice. Now, with the release of a new video on TMZ.com showing what really happened that night in an elevator in the Revel casino in Atlantic City, we found out exactly how wrong Goodell got it. Once and for all we see Rice’s girlfriend, now his wife, coming at him and see him snapping her head back with the kind of left hook that Joe Frazier threw at Muhammad Ali in their first fight at the Garden.

Rice originally got two games from the league for that. He needs to get a lot more. He is the one who needs to get hit harder now.

Mr. Lupica, Mr. Rice got suspended for knocking his future wife out cold.    Why do somehow consider Mr. Rice’s deed more unacceptable, for having seen the video of Mr. Rice throwing the punch.   Did you somehow think that the new Mrs. Rice has knocked herself out?

Son of Addendum Eric:
Let’s ponder this from the standpoint of equality for just a moment.
If Jayna Rice had knocked her then-to-be husband out, we’d not be discussing this.

Speaking of not discussing such attacks, did you hear about the group of black youth showing up at a Memphis shopping center and punching the lights out of several white passer-bys, the other day? No?

Gee, I wonder why.  And, I wonder, why we’re 27*7/wall-to-wall on the one and not the other.  Don’t you?

I don’t know if Joan Rivers was an original, but she exhibited stalwart qualities. she toiled, rose, fell down, adapted and got back up again, from Hank Stuever, Washington Post:

In her long and relentless comedy career, Joan Rivers, who died Thursday at 81, worked plenty hard enough to become famous many times over, from one era to the next, riding out waves of occasional public disapproval and the sometimes fickle regard of her peers. She started her career telling hilariously honest miserable-housewife jokes on black-and-white TV. In the end, she was making fun of her own sagging form and Kim Kardashian’s infant daughter.

[...]

Her sense of humor and her belief only in being funny, made her part of a dying tribe, the last remaining people who honestly believe that if you can’t take a joke, you are welcome to go (bleep) yourself. Her descendants include not only the Kathy Griffins and Sarah Silvermans of the comedy world, but also the only person you really want to talk to at a party, the one with the unhinged mouth.

Heck read the whole thing.  I don’t plan of linking to the WaPo all that often.

Sure this a local story, but so was Trayvon Martin’s attempt to kill George Zimmerman and Micheal Brown assault battery on Ferguson police officer Darrin Wilson.

Thomas johnson, IIIAt a press conference Thursday afternoon, the Rochester Police Department detailed the sequence of events that led up to the shooting on Hudson Avenue in which a Rochester police officer was shot and killed. Two other people were injured including an innocent bystander and the suspect.

Below is the verbatim sequence of events from Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli. It details the stop made by Officer Michael DiPaolo and Officer Daryl Pierson that resulted in the shooting on Hudson Avenue near Warsaw Street.
Timeline of events on Wednesday September 3, 2014
• Approximately 9:19p.m., RPD Tactical Officers stopped a vehicle. When they first observed the vehicle, it contained two people. When they stopped it, there was only one person in the vehicle.

• At about 9:20 p.m., Officer DiPaola and Officer Pierson arrived as back up for this vehicle stop.

• At about 9:22 p.m., Officer DiPaola and Officer Pierson began to search the area for the second individual who had been observed in the vehicle. Officer DiPaola was driving the police vehicle and Officer Pierson was the passenger.

• At about 9:25 p.m., Officer DiPaola and Officer Pierson observed an individual matching the description of the second occupant of the vehicle. Officer Pierson exited the police vehicle and approached the person who matched the description. This individual immediately fled Southbound on Hudson Avenue.

• Officer Pierson pursued this individual on foot, while Officer DiPaola turned the police vehicle around to assist in the pursuit.

• Officer Pierson caught up to the suspect at Hudson Avenue and Agnes Street. At that point, the suspect shot Officer Pierson one time with a 25-caliber handgun. This wound proved to be fatal.

• Officer Pierson and the suspect both fell to the ground. As they fell, the suspect’s 25 caliber handgun discharged a second time. We believe this second shot from the suspect’s handgun, struck the innocent bystander, Jamal Boller, 24 years of age causing a serious, but a non-life threatening injury.

• The suspect then got up and continued to flee on foot. By that time, Officer DiPaola exited his police vehicle and pursued the suspect. As the suspect was running, he turned to fire at Officer DiPaola.

• Officer DiPaola then fired one round at the suspect with his RPD issued handgun. Officer DiPaola’s shot struck the suspect causing a non-life threatening injury.

• Officer DiPaola then apprehended the suspect.

• At about this point, other RPD Officers arrived on scene, and then placed Officer Pierson in a police vehicle, transporting him to Rochester General Hospital.

• Officer Pierson was pronounced by Rochester General Medical Staff at 10:45 p.m.

• Both the suspect and Mr. Boller were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment. Boller was treated and released.

• The suspect underwent surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital, and is currently admitted to the hospital under police guard.

• The suspect has been identified as: Thomas Johnson III, a male, 38 years of age. We later determined that Mr. Johnson has an outstanding Parole Warrant.

Reax, Nice Deb:

There was a triple (black on white) murder in Kansas City, this week – not that the Rev. Al, Jesse Jackson or Eric (why is this man still our Atty Gen?) Holder give a flip. The perp was wearing a dark hoodie.

Then there’s that black cop shooting of an unarmed white man (thin guy, too – not a 300 lb behemoth) that happened in Utah two days after the Michael Brown shooting. But then, you probably haven’t heard about that one because it doesn’t fulfill a favored media (race-baiting, election year) narrative.

You will not be surprised to hear that the crack team of race-baiting radicals Eric (why is this man still our Attorney General?) Holder sent to Ferguson, have found enough evidence of “concerns”, “mistrust”, and “lack of diversity” that a civil rights investigation of the Ferguson Police Department by the Department of Justice is apparently warranted.

Mr. Holder sure take to his heart the idea Justice is blind.

Lame Streamer media whitewash dead nigger. How much whitewash does it take of cover up a two hundred ninety pound dead black youth? I, for one, don’t know, but the lame stream must got a volume discount at Home Depot, from Charles C. Johnson, Got News:

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrongly reported that Cynthia Harcourt, who represents the St. Louis family court, said that Michael Brown had not been convicted of a “serious felony.” (No reporter has asked her what a “serious felony” even means.)

I am not a lawyer, but in New York State any crime which carries a maximum sentence of at least 12 months in considered a felony. Are the lame steamers in Missouri so gullible to believe that spending a year in state prison is somehow a not serious

Oh, wait, that’s already happened. Never mind.

The face of evil, from Gordon Rayner, Martin Evans and John Bingham, Telegraph (UK):

Picture 3.jpg  Joyce Thacker , the strategic director of Children and Young People's Services

Joyce Thacker

The woman who presided over the last five years of failure as the boss of children’s services at Rotherham Council is the same executive who removed three children from their foster parents because they were Ukip voters.

Joyce Thacker, the £130,000-a-year Strategic Director of Children’s Services at the scandal-hit council, is among the senior managers who are now under pressure to resign following the “excoriating” report into child sexual exploitation in the town.

Islam is evil and all that evil needs to succeed is good men to standby and do nothing.
