    I’ve been trying to find a channel where I can watch it. No luck yet. In the meantime, some of you may be disappointed to learn that Jeb won’t be joining Trump, Cruz, Levin and the others at the rally this afternoon. He will be fundraising in Hong Kong instead. Well, he’s got to get the money someplace.

    Jeb Bush is reaching out to Asia for campaign donations

    He is hosting a fundraising event in Hong Kong where he is expected to speak to supporters via video conference. Bush anticipates 40 guests to attend; at $2,700 per guest, his campaign is expected to raise around $100,000.

    I saw an interview with Glen Beck on FOX last night. He said that there were 25,000 at his “AllLivesMatter” rally in Atlanta (I think) and there was ZERO MSM coverage. The photo I saw of the march showed a more diverse group than I’ve seen anywhere. It’s clear the MSM are getting marching orders of their own from someone who intends to run the world – not simply Congress.

    Don’t forget that Sarah is going to be there. 🙂

    Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Hillary’s e-mails. Of course, if you weren’t on your computer at 11:00 last night, you might have missed it. So, I’ll do Hillary a favor and post it here. Hee Hee. 🙂

    Thanks all for getting the party started. Did anyone watch Colbert last night? I read he’s “obviously” liberal which was a turn off to many who like their comedy “fair and balanced”. JEB! was on to and didn’t know he was being made fun of from what the twits are saying.

    How To Watch Donald Trump, Sarah Palin And Ted Cruz’s Anti-Iran Nuclear Deal Rally In Washington DC: Live Stream


    On Wednesday, September 9 at 1 p.m. ET, Breitbart News will carry the Stop Iran Rally from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Glenn Beck and Mark Levin will be there too.

    U.S. businesses reach out quickly to partners in Iran

    American companies wasted no time in reaching out to Iran about possible business opportunities, after news that some sanctions had been temporarily lifted for the next six months. According to Mr. Miller, Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Boeing, Chevron and ExxonMobil are among a handful of companies that have contacted Iranian diplomats in Washington about the possibility of selling there.

    “American companies have been sitting like hawks,” said Mr. Miller, born Ekram Manafzadeh, who immigrated to America in the 1970s. “They used to do business in Iran, and now they want to go back. They know Iran is a huge market with lots of money.”

    Hillary Clinton Opened Door to Key U.S. Shift Toward Iran Nuclear Deal

    At State Department, the Democratic front-runner and an aide softened their stance against letting Tehran enrich uranium

    Hillary Clinton, in her last months as secretary of state, helped open the door to a dramatic shift in U.S. policy toward Iran: an acceptance that Tehran would maintain at least some capacity to produce nuclear fuel, according to current and former U.S. officials.

    stolen from No Quarter

    is an outstanding letter written to the four men who are continuing to stir the
    racial pot in this country …. they blame law enforcement rather than the
    degenerated culture behind the problems.

    Well said by NJ State Police Officer.

    open letter to President Obama …. Attorney General Eric Holder …. Mayor Bill
    DeBlasio (New York) and …. Rev. Al Sharpton, in regards to “Retraining of Law
    Enforcement Officers.

    Contrary to what you gentlemen might believe, my “training” to become a
    Law Enforcement Officer started long before the police academy. It started long
    before I even thought of becoming a police officer. You see, gentlemen, my
    “training” started shortly after I was born and it started right in my own home.
    My parents, my family, my relatives, my siblings, my friends’ parents, my
    neighbors, my church, my school, my teachers, my athletic coaches all played a
    part in my “training”.

    From a very early age I was “trained” to be
    respectful, compassionate, understanding, strong, determined, courageous,
    faithful, and above all responsible for my own actions. What I learned in the
    academy is that every recruit/cadet had about the same “training” that I had. We
    all arrived with the same morals and the same goals. We all wanted to “Protect
    & Serve”. What didn’t matter was skin color, gender, ethnicity or

    Throughout the academy, the previously mentioned attributes
    were discussed at length, but our “training” also included how to deal with
    people who did not have the same level of “training” that we had come to
    understand as normal behavior.

    Unfortunately our society has created a
    gap in “training” for the less fortunate and the self-entitled. Politicians have
    promised CHANGE time and again only to keep dumping mounds of cash on the
    situation and never addressing the real issue. The less fortunate do not need
    handouts — they need jobs. They need to feel a sense of purpose and
    self-satisfaction from accomplishments. Their lack of self worth becomes an
    excuse for accepting criminal behavior as a way of life. If I can’t earn what I
    want, I might as well take what I can get. If I’m not accepted by society, maybe
    I can be accepted by a gang. Teach a man to fish.

    Welfare was not
    intended to raise 4-5 generations. It was meant to assist those who’ve fallen on
    hard times. With the lack of jobs and no promise of a future, crime becomes an
    acceptable behavior.

    Police officers are the “Thin Blue Line” between a
    civilized society and total anarchy. The police did not create this problem. The
    police did not make the laws. The police did not create criminals.

    four gentlemen have made numerous statements blaming the police and their
    “training”. You need to think about your words that have been spoken in recent
    speeches and the statements you’ve made.

    Less than 1% of all police
    officers are involved in any misconduct (and this does not mean criminal
    misconduct) yet you gentlemen have made more than your share of statements
    inferring that the police are the MAIN PROBLEM. When you four gentlemen make
    statements that ALL police need “RETRAINING” you do exactly what you accuse the
    police of doing.

    Mr. President and Mr. DeBlasio there are SOME
    politicians who are corrupt, does this mean that YOU are corrupt??

    Holder SOME lawyers are criminals and drug addicts, does this mean YOU are a
    drug dealer or an abuser??

    Rev. Sharpton some men hide behind God to
    molest children, are YOU a pedophile?? Yet all four of you have lumped ALL
    policemen and policewomen as racists in need of “training”.

    What’s even
    worse is that you four have done this after two recent events and before ALL THE
    FACTS were known.

    Both instances, while tragic, had zero evidence of any
    racist behavior on the part of law enforcement. Yet all four of you believe ALL
    police need “training”.

    The four of you have failed at your mission. It
    all started by making inflammatory remarks against police prior to hearing the
    evidence. It continued by all four of you failing to denounce criminal behavior
    at so-called “peaceful protests” and you have failed by not standing behind the
    laws of the land when you decided that two grand juries were wrong — the same
    laws that helped you all get the positions you hold today.

    The four of
    you might need some “training”. You might need to be reminded that your jobs are
    to bring us all together on the RIGHT side of the law. This will only be
    accomplished when gentlemen such as you stop blaming the police and start
    teaching men to fish rather than giving them a fish!!

    Trump, Cruz , Palin, beck. What fun.
    They are not pulling punches. Sarah went at HRC hard. The pundits are befuddled. It seems to be slowly dawning on them nobody cares what they think. Some idiot was on the telly saying America needs someone with a heart like Jeb. Sod off ya bloody wanker. I want to hear a president say fuck with my people and I will end you. Not ISIS beheads children because they need jobs
    Dumbest thing anyone has ever said. I wonder how these people raise kids. I say so many things I thought I would neverr say. Why I will tell you why because I said so. I loved that woman from Baltimore riots smacking her kid in the head. I do not condone violence but that smack may have saved his life. I have progressive friends that have au pairs. Shut up it is a nanny. Your kid is on pills because maybe he is screaming for attention and structure. Children like rules. Trust me I fight with brat. She knows as much as I claim to hate her that I do cherish her. The sense of safety needs to exceed boundaries. Psyhc 101.

    The Nicholas Cage version of Left Behind is coming to Netflix. Worst movie I have ever seen. So absurdly fun. I cannot believe anyone with an IQ over ten let it be made. They throw a midget. I say watch the movie to see how bad. Hollywood needs to stay away from Christian films. I rented Noah because the brat likes Emily Watson. Awful movie. Side note I was working at a place called Sambucca across the sreet from The Dakota where John Lennon was shot. I took the call i asked the guy for his mame he said DeCarlo. I said like Yvonne DeCarlo. He said you know my grandmother. People lie all the time for reservations. We were packed on weekend but midweek no issue. I was in the office waitress said someone wants to talk to you guy hands me his cell phone and I was talking to Lillian Munster.

      I watched “God’s Not Dead” last year. That had no Hollywood intervention in it.

        Love that movie corny but good. I grew up very Catholic
        I took a wild ride in my youth. I thought I was something buying heroin in Alphabet City. I am much older now. I still make dumb decisions but outgrew idiotic drug stuff. I don’t know much about dogma but I need a little faith. Nota tool that Pope Climate Change can kiss my ass. I am 48 when I was a kid churches played a big part in my life. Town I grew up in is now like a third world country. The churches are gone drugs and crime are insane. I think some moral base is needed. The global warming cult does not replace religion. I have no idea what I believe in but my base prevented me from going over the edge. I read 3 out of ten first grade boys are on meds. That is nuts. Shay has only been in a church a few times but she gets some concept of other. Some evangelicals hate Harry Potter. I am like what they are moral stories. Friendship integrity. Standing up being different. I owe a debt to Rowling. I tried reading many books to brat she would fall asleep. Potter is kinda like Trump. Captures the imagination.

      Jeezus Fucking Key-rist, those perpetual victims (they aren’t feminists) are an embarrassment to women.
      They need to find something important to care about.
      Also, I suggest seeing a doctor or priest.

    Taggart is a born predator. He hasn’t graduated to birds and mice yet, but he is a great bug-catcher.

    I don’t mind that part. What I do mind is that whenever he catches something he doesn’t kill it right away. He brings it into the house and plays with it. He lets it go and then chases it. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    The moths and dragonflies are the worst because they can fly. Taggart jumps and leaps and crashes into stuff, all the while making weird sounds.

    I am really getting tired of replacing lamp bulbs.

    He loves it when the crawly things get under a rug. I have to straighten rugs 10 times a day because he flips them over looking to see if he left any bugs under there.

    If I take away one of his living toys he spends at least a half-hour searching for it. Then he goes and looks for a new one.

  32. mothy67 says:

    How many cats do you have? I broke down. There was this toothless cat. I am allergic but I said okay. We found kittens once in a box in a parking lot. I get watery eyes.These little dudes were so cute. They would crawl onto my shoulders. Rescue cat ladies asked if we could keep them a few weeks. We did. I did not know no milk for kittens. They shat all over me. I do not pass out from animal pooh. Bunny bunny poops on me all the time. I do not wear animal defacation as cologne but I do not fall apart over rabbit poop.

    GROSS: Colbert Launches Late Show with Donald Trump on Screen With KKK (Video)

    Stephen Colbert’s first night on the Late Show proved he’s still every bit the left wing hack he was on Comedy Central. He spent almost six solid minutes bashing Donald Trump but not a single joke about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal or crazy Socialist Bernie Sanders.

    • 1539days says:

      I’m pretty sure CBS figured out Colbert wasn’t going to take away any of Fallon’s audience. Instead, they’re going after the Jon Stewart demographic.

      Late Show cancelled this year? Might happen.
