    Excellent Read –
    “Mr. Obama is an amateur who is enthralled with the sound of his own voice and is incapable of coming to grips with the consequences of his actions. He is surrounded by sycophants, second-rate intellectuals, and a media that remains compliant and uncritical in the face of repeated foreign policy disasters. As country after country in the world’s most dangerous region fall into chaos—Libya and Yemen are essentially anarchic states, even as Syria and Iraq continue to devolve—Mr. Obama puzzlingly focuses much of his attention and rhetoric on Israel, childishly refusing to accept the mandate its people have given their prime minister in an election that, by the way, added three additional seats to the country’s Arab minority.

    “Until Mr. Obama released a 1987 classified report detailing Israel’s nuclear program, we believed that the president’s Iranian policy was motivated by a different vision of America’s interests in the Middle East. Admittedly, it is one that would be difficult to dissect, let alone to explain.

    But Mr. Obama’s latest petulant act shows that this is not a president motivated by policy but by personal feelings. He sacrificed the security of our close ally and its seven million citizens because he felt slighted. How else does one explain that Israel’s nuclear program is made public while the report’s description of the programs of our NATO partners is redacted?”

      Nailed it. Sadly, this is what we’ve been stuck with. I’m worried we may not be able to safely weather the next 2 years. No one in a position of any power seems interested in doing anything about him and the dangerous place he has put us.

      “He is surrounded by sycophants, second-rate intellectuals, and a media that remains compliant and uncritical in the face of repeated foreign policy disasters”
      First rate intellectuals could possibly be worse than second rate. Intellectuals don’t understand and can’t deal with action people like terrorists and religious fanatics.
      Only the corporate media is compliant and uncritical and most thinking people have given up on those players. Thankfully we have small independent blogs and media to keep informed.

    Wow. Your descendants are lovely… No funky hair, no big red nose, just beauty. Not klowns at all. 😉

    GoFundMe campaign for Memories pizza now over 85,000.

    • DeniseVB says:

      This is the best overview of Pizzagate I’ve read. The owners never said they’d refuse service to anyone, I think the “journalist” who stuck a camera in their face left that part out. I’m sure if someone ordered a 100 pies to serve at their wedding (gay or straight), they’d make them, but you pick them up. Easy peasy. I think catering is the gotcha word here, since it involves a whole crew of people to set up,serve and clean up those pizza boxes. Same with wedding cakes and flowers ?

    • swanspirit says:

      $143,189 now! I hope they get a million LOL

      • simofish says:

        OK – that settles it — I need to find a journalist and say something stupid — then get a Go Fund me account.

      • lyn says:

        The Ferguson cake lady topped out at $270,000.

      • elliesmom says:

        I don’t know how else we send a message to the folks who are stomping on people for expressing an unpopular message. They aren’t going to change the minds of the people who disagree with them this way, and they’re losing a lot of support from the rest of us. I’m beginning to think there must be someone, a shadow Al Sharpton type, who must be making a lot of money out of the same sex marriage issue, and who is trying to cash in before same sex marriage becomes a non-issue. I understand some of the hysteria is supposed to be energizing the left in preparation for the 2016 elections, but it’s also energizing the right and disgusting a good swath through the middle. Which way the middle goes is anybody’s guess, but it’s a big risk.

        • lyn says:

          Good interview.

        • lyn says:

          The Democrats are dancing on the graves of the “unelectable” Republicans. The next presidential election is going to be ugly. I think the middle spoke in 2014, and I hope we shove it up the Democrats’ asses in 2016.

      • lyn says:

        The account is receiving $2,000 a minute right now.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Just checked 257k so far. 🙂

          • angienc says:

            Past 400k right now — they may well get to 1/2 a million before the night is over.

          • leslie says:

            I wonder if people who watch Megyn Kelly just learned about it. When she signed off tonight, she mentioned it. I bet that got some other people to take a look and maybe donate in these last 30-something minutes.

    copy of the Menendez indictment.

    maybe there is no there, there. political payback from backtrack bunch?

  7. foxyladi14 says:

    Katie is a cutie. 😀

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Another good thwacking on Pizzagate from the Chicks ….

    I have to agree that reporter was a hack, no wonder the media is so despised.

    • Lulu says:

      Never talk to a “journalist” nor a pollster. Never agree for your face to be seen in their footage for tv or a photo for a publication either. It isn’t worth it. Politely but firmly refuse.

  9. TheRealKim says:

    Myiq, are you supporting the pizza place?

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I’m supporting the principle that freedom includes the right to be wrong. They didn’t do anything discriminatory. They are being attacked for a thought crime.

      I support LGBT rights and SSM, but that doesn’t mean that people aren’t free to disagree.

      • lyn says:

        I don’t support fascism and mob rule from either side. Be outraged at our lying politicians and leave the little people alone.

      • TheRealKim says:

        The owner stated he would not refuse to serve anyone, but would not cater a same sex wedding.

        • elliesmom says:

          And should the owner of a kosher deli be forced to cater the pig roast we’re holding for my son’s 13th birthday? He caters bar mitzvahs for other boys.

        • NewOrleans says:

          The entire situation is absolutely ludicrous. No self-respecting gay would EVER use a pizza joint to cater their wedding! Not even in states that find joy in marrying their relatives.

        • angienc says:

          That’s what myiq said — thought crime.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    For The Office fans, their auditions ….

  11. Myiq2xu says:

    Well, it looks like Obama has guaranteed peace in our time.

      • Lulu says:

        The bait and switch with the pizza place was so outrage-y and hyped up everyone is too tuckered out to give a crap. And it is just a promise to talk some more. Kind of like they agreed not to break up but it is OK to date others. Big whoop.

    • Lulu says:

      More stuff for the Democrats to worry about in 2016. Let’s see. I predict they loose 6 more Senate seats, 31 Congressional districts and the White House. That is my wild ass guess for now. Thanks Bronco!

      • SHV says:

        2016 is pretty slim Senate pickings for the Rs, probably Nevada, maybe Colorado.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          NJ may be in play if Bob Menendez steps down, retires or goes to prison. If he leaves early does Gov. Soprano get to appoint his replacement?

  17. HELENK3 says:

    did kerry even ask about the Americans that Iran is holding prisoner?

    guess they are not backtrack’s kind of people. one served with honor in the US Marine Corp. another is a Christian minister. the third is a reporter.

  18. HELENK3 says:

    something we should start to pay a lot of attention

    Sir I will not obey that order

  19. swanspirit says:

    In case anyone was wondering just how far, and it is very far ; from reality, the eminently mockable purveyors of progressivism over at birdbrain juice have wandered, I can tell you. The current theory of what happened at Memories Pizza, is that the Pizza owners planned the whole thing , for the express purpose of making a bundle by means of GoFundMe,
    And of course the rubber stamp comments almost unanimously agree. YEP, the poor pizza parlor owners PLANNED the whole thing and it is a classic example of Christian right wing GRIFT.

    • 1539days says:

      I wrote about this yesterday. It’s not about social justice, it’s about socialism. The left wants laws that say any jerk can go to a business and ask for anything and must be served. They do not, however, even want the “right to refuse service” that every business uses as a fallback when they have difficult customers. That’s because they believe businesses are inherently anti-citizen and therefore must serve at the whim of the larger government.

  20. lildoggy4u says:

    If I hear one more things about pizzas and cakes I’m gonna lose it. What a nothing compared to the Veteran’s Administration blowing 288,000 dollars to move an administrator 140 miles. Uhaul costs 19.95/day. A couple of illegal immigrants for labor – 200 bucks plus tip.
    See, I think we could’ve gotten a few disabled vets to even help out to save that money for services to their fellow vets. But all I’m hearing and reading about is cakes and pizzas. Frankly, I wouldn’t want something from someone unwilingly. I worked in restaurants – they really will spit in your food.

    Here is a new one: Nonimmigrant overstay. Right here in my county.

    Worcester County Sheriff’s Office

    On Tuesday, March 28, 2015, WCBI was forwarded a case by the Maryland State Police. Detectives met with the complainant who’s 14 year old daughter had been sexually solicited and sent images of child pornography by the suspect, later identified as Hector Adolfo Ochoa-Barrios of Silver Spring, Maryland.

    Detectives assumed the identity of the victim and continued communication with Ochoa-Barrios. Ochoa-Barrios again sexually solicited what he believed to be the juvenile and expressed an interest in meeting her to engage in various sexual activities.

    Detectives arranged to meet with Barrios on April 2, 2015 in Snow Hill. Barrios travelled over two and a half hours and arrived in Snow Hill where he was taken into custody. In a subsequent interview, Ochoa-Barrios admitted to having a sexual interest in young females and to downloading and having child pornography on his cellular telephone and on a tablet in his vehicle as well as possessing and using a social security number that did not belong to him. Ochoa-Barrios is a “Nonimmigrant Overstay” and is being entered into the Immigration system. He is currently being held at the Worcester County Jail.

      Ask anyone involved with the criminal justice system and they will tell you that there are lots of illegals who commit crimes, from minor traffic violations and petty thefts to rape and murder. Go over to family court when they have the Spanish-speaking calendar and you’ll see lots of deadbeat dads who are illegal, and so are their baby-mamas. They are getting lots of social services too.

  22. Steve says:

    Memories Pizza to Re-open! Nearly $500K raised on their behalf – so far!!

    • Myiq2xu says:

      The owners should only use the amount necessary to cover their losses and a little for their trouble, and donate the rest to charity.
