Oops..seems those “bonuses” paid to VA officials who created the phony lists can’t be rescinded after all ( Hey, how about just firing somebody, anybody?)
Well, if you want to start your weekend off by getting really PO’d, here’ s a must read: Mark Flatten’s superb expose in “The Washington Examiner” : “Veterans Affairs officials claim agency cannot revoke bonuses, contradicting earlier statements to congressional committee.” http://washingtonexaminer.com/veterans-affairs-officials-claim-agency-cannot-revoke-bonuses/article/2550764 FYI..there’s a chart at the end of the article…it lists ALL the VA supervisors who got bonuses, and the amounts. Every one should be | Read More »
Where are all the so-called “moderate” Muslims decrying the self-anointed caliph’s use of a mosque to proclaim jihad?
ISIS, or IS..as it is now calling itself (guess it all depends on what the meaning of “IS,” is..) last week released a video of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, or ABAB, or AB2..the new self described caliph of every grain of sand on the planet earth, speaking at a mosque in Mosul, and calling for all Muslims everywhere to bow down to him, and rise | Read More »
So, Hillary’s donated her college speaking fees to charity? OK…produce the evidence ( and one obvious reason why she’s lying)
Hillary’s book tour cum White House campaign try-out isn’t going as well as expected. Stung by comments about her wealth, and her inability to relate to the concerns of the common folk, she’s managed to elevate “foot in mouth disease” to a new level. Let’s call it “CMS” for “cankle in mouth syndrome.” So she’s now claiming, as reported by the AP, that she has | Read More »
Whither the Democrat party post 2016?
I know, I know….we haven’t even had the 2014 elections yet. People succeed because often they have the ability to think ahead, into the future, to see just over the crest of the hill, or around the corner. The same hold true with politics. Barack Obama was elected in 2008 promising to “fundamentally transform America.” It’s possible he may instead end up “fundamentally transforming the | Read More »
So, would it really be THAT bad if we don’t win the Senate in November?
(from the diaries by streiff) The latest election results in Mississippi have generated considerable anger among conservatives. The tactics of the GOPe are disgraceful; there’s no question about that. And some are saying that it’s time to play hardball..Republicans in Mississippi should either NOT vote in the Senate race, or even better ( or worse, depending on one’s perspective) vote for the Democrat. That would | Read More »
Red State Contest: Guess the date that Thad Cochran announces his retirement. Tie breaker: guess the excuse…er, reason
OK, we’re all gnashing our teeth today. Democrats in Mississippi decided who will be the next Republican senator from the Magnolia state. Obviously, we need to change the rules, and end this open primary idiocy. However, no reason we can’t have a little fun along the way… Therefore, a little contest for all you politically astute Red Staters.. GUESS THE DATE THAT THAD COCHRAN ANNOUNCES | Read More »
Observe the utter stupidity of Darrell Issa gavelling Trey Gowdy to be quiet.
Gawd….will we EVER learn anything? If you saw the IRS hearings last night, one thing was obvious: Trey Gowdy OWNED Koskinen. Gowdy was magnificent. Here’s the video. Watch..watch it again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avfm2urqdHM And at the end, we are forced to witness Issa gavelling Gowdy down, as his time has expired, as he is skewering Koskinen. I don’t fault Issa here..as Chair he is charged with seeing | Read More »
Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp: a.k.a. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Chuck Hagel
By all accounts, Oscar Wilde should be enjoying a resurgence in popularity inside the Beltway. His observation that “life imitates art” is proving to have legs, as evidenced by the clowns now running the US government. Those of us who grew up with the “Three Stooges” are crying in our beer and/or oatmeal as we observe the inmates running the asylum. And before anyone question | Read More »
Thinking the unthinkable: What if this administration really doesn’t have a clue?
Insults are as old as politics. And they’re bipartisan; applied equally by one side against the other: “They’re total idiots.” “They have no idea what they’re doing.” “Miserable failure” ( remember that one? repeated ad nauseam by the Democrats during the Bush years). “The inmates are running the asylum.” Take your pick. But as we consider the present state of our nation and planet, we are | Read More »
A huge opportunity ( and test) for the MSM: Mississippi newspapers and TV stations must force a debate between McDaniel and Cochran
OK, we’re into a run-off in Mississippi, (unless Cochran decides to concede). This contest has huge implications, both for the GOP and for the country, and has garnered massive national media attention. But, surprisingly ( or not) the candidates did not debate once. Cochran declined every opportunity to do so, amid several reports that questioned his alertness and vitality. So we’re presented with a SIX | Read More »
