Summer doldrums is here. That time between the end of basketball and hockey season, and before football season starts, when lazy baseball games stretch on, the days are long, and everyone takes their vacations. There’s plenty of reasons the Obama White House would like us to just forget the next two months and take a national vacation.
ICYMI, let’s review the White House’s woe-list:
Lois Lerner’s imminent sacrifice has been kicked down the road with the IRS claim that the dog computer ate her homework email. Conveniently, only the emails from the time period where she was (allegedly) masterminding the stonewall and inquisition of conservative tax-exempt groups. More conveniently, only the smoking gun emails, the run-of-the-mill, I’m-doing-my-job emails are fine. The rest, well we know where they went. Nothing to see here, move along.
The VA is still waitlisting veterans for care (and who knows if they are still hiding the evidence?), and the ritual bloodletting of Shinseki’s departure has done nothing to fix anything wrong with the VA. Word is that top men are working on the problem. Top. Men.
Benghazi’s fog of war has not lifted, and isn’t likely to in the next decade. Hillary Clinton claims she blacked out, or she was abducted by aliens, or she was replying to an important text and missed it. But it’s the military’s fault, they weren’t ready to respond to a demonstration about a video planned attack.
The Taliban Five, they’re not so bad, not like they’ve killed Americans—except they have—Mullah Mohammad Fazl was directly responsible for Mike Spann’s death. We got Bergdahl back; we can’t get Spann back, he’s buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
On the positive side:
The Spurs won the NBA title.
The Kings won the Stanley Cup.
President Obama cut a stroke off his golf handicap

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Tonight, once again, Donald Trump retweeted a tweet from an account with the username “@WhiteGenocideTM”. This may sound familiar to you, because he has done this before, from the exact same account. Here is tonight’s retweet: And here is what CNN reported back in January: The profile — with about 2,300 followers — used the name “Donald Trumpovitz,” linked | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sometimes we have to have some non-political posts otherwise we will all go crazy. This video was simply too good not to share with all of you. I am a huge fan of Family Feud, and there have been a lot of terrible contestants, but this one might very well be the worst ever. The video is long, but | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES That’s right. Donald Trump, in South Carolina, came out in favor of Common Core education standards. Has he not been paying attention? Common Core is wildly unpopular in South Carolina. The state had originally implemented the standards and then rescinded them after a public backlash. Jeb Bush, at a Heritage Action forum in South Carolina was booed over the | Read More »
