    Seriously now, wouldn’t you rather listen to a robot speak than have to hear Hillary giggle? 🙂


    Not A Joke: Robot To Be Featured Speaker At Clinton Foundation Event

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Of course this is how the lefty media will headline Walker’s farewell speech. Yet he called for more to drop out ? It hasn’t been playing well in the news feeds, even on the right.

    • votermom says:

      I like Walker and would have voted for him happily in the general, but he should not have flounced off that way.
      Just quit if you’re gonna quit, don’t do thw whole goodbye cruel word thing. So cheeto-like.
      Also, didn’t he sign that dumb pledge to support the nominee? If “current front-runner” wins, will he support him?

      • DeniseVB says:

        Perry exited the race with dignity and I bet if Trump leaves the race he’ll jump back in. Not sure Walker would be as welcomed after slamming the door shut. His “GOP Unite Against Trump” zing sounded awfully RINOish. Or I should say Yebbish!

        I heard someone explain “suspending my campaign” sure does leave the door open to re-enter in a bizzarro election season like this one. It usually means The End, but nothing’s been normal about the GOP race.

        Yeah, I saw The Donald’s tweet this morning about the pledge, you could just hear his:facepalm: in that one 😀

        • votermom says:

          What was his tweet?

          Edit, oh I see it now, an rt of someone

          • piper says:

            Not happy about Walker’s parting shot about Trump who himself dishes out insults but cries foul when derogatory comments are made about him. Classic kindergarten behavior (no insult to our little ones) but my message to all candidates – grow up and present your ideas/plans on how to fix our problems without rancor or denigrating mouthiness. No wonder world leaders like Putin are laughing at us poor widdle victims of micro and macro aggressions.

          • helenk3 says:

            Trump is a master at the “charlie Brown” defense.
            ” why is everybody always picking on me”

          • DeniseVB says:

            Yes, that’s the one, but hard to tell where his r/t ends and his response begins.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Was Trump the only signer? :facepalm:

    • 49erDweet says:

      Pretty petulant, IMO.

    • piper says:

      Thanks for the link – just bought Victor’s book recommendation, Michael Walsh – The Devil’s Pleasure Palace: The Cult of Critical Theory and the Subversion of the West

    This is a youtube I just came across. It is from 2014 although what it is talking about happened in 2013 in Germany.
    An imam was invited to Martin Luther’s church. As he begins his “call to prayer” a German woman shouts that Jesus is Lord of Germany and that she is “breaking this curse.”

    • dm says:

      Thanks for posting that. I don’t follow his day to day activities, but I do like to try and keep up with Cruz. He’s my horse in this race, always has been.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Caught a part of O’Reilly on Fox this morning and found myself agreeing with a couple of things…

    1) We’re still in the Reality Show part of the campaign season, and

    2) Asked those 128 Hollywooders who signed a letter in support of Bernie Sanders to start putting 90% of their incomes in an escrow account to get used to a Sanders administration. If he doesn’t win, we’ll happily distribute your escrows to charities.

    • dm says:

      I hate to say it, but it really would not surprise me one bit if this really was all a set up. If nothing else, it is a “test” of the response. It’s a win win for CAIR…look at all the sympathy they are garnering for poor little Ahmed. Seriously, this kid was not that young and couldn’t be that stupid to think that this wouldn’t arouse suspicion.

    do these people use velcro instead of shoe laces to fasten their shoes. never mind I guess they wear loafers.

    • piper says:

      My questions to all those elitists and politicians – what are you going to do when you run out of other people’s money and everyone is demanding more and more. Can you see the revolution coming your way into your secure gated communities.

  8. piper says:

    Dianny’s good rant about Miss Lindsay who just wants attention and will do or say anything to garner the same kind of attention that Trump is getting.

  9. piper says:

    Shamelessly stealing from Dianny:
    Clearly Lindsey suffers not from Islamophobia, but Offendophobia.

    Offendophobia from Dianny’s Dictionary
    “The illogical, inexplicable fear of offending Muslim radicals which results in burying one’s head in the sand about the dangers of Islamic radicals.”

    So terrified are these people of offending Muslims they have all but surrendered their right to speak freely.

    • piper says:

      This should rest under my other Dianny comment. Oh well, word press is telling me time to mow the lawn which is more fun than snow removal.

    • helenk3 says:

      for all those who say we should take in thousands of syrian refugees when muslim countries will not ask yourself these questions

      ! why won’t other muslim countries take them?. and lest we forget history, in 1947 when Israel became a country, muslim countries would not take in the displaced muslims and we still have an ongoing fighting.

      2 would you take in thousands of rattlesnakes into your home and embrace them and not expect to die?

    Interesting tidbit from Zero Hedge about needing a passport on domestic flights. What’s up – another way to have citizen’s money flow into another gubermint office. Thankfully I have a passport so I can get around for a few more years via air, and have a change purse full of dollars and coins to travel on Illinois roads.
    “The Department of Homeland Security and representatives with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have declined to comment on why certain states have been singled out, but starting in 2016, residents of New York, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and American Samoa will need a passport to fly domestically. All other states will still be able to use their state-issued driver’s licenses and IDs — for now, at least.”

      freight railroad may not run passenger trains due to deadline imposed by congress to upgrade the rails by Jan 1 2017. traveling in this country does not look too good in the future. Isn’t that a communist thing restricting travel?

    • elliesmom says:

      A passport costs as much as a short vacation. If it’s racist to require someone to get an ID to vote, surely it must be racist to require someone to have a passport to take a vacation? By the time we ordered up long form birth certificates and paid the passport fees, it cost us over a hundred dollars a piece. I guess only privileged white folks can fly home to visit Mom.

      On another note, because some of the 9/11 terrorists got on the plane in Boston, security at Logan has remained very tight. The friend who was supposed to travel with us refused to fly out on 9/11, not because she was afraid to get on the plane, but because she didn’t want to go through security that day. We ended up going on the 10th instead. Security was still ridiculous. Elliesdad walks with a cane that is obviously a medical device, but TSA insisted on taking it away from him. They would not let me assist him through the scanner, nor did they offer to help him. He became very nervous about falling, which prompted them to give him the full treatment. In the process they took away his cellphone and neglected to give it back to him. I didn’t notice he didn’t have it until we were halfway to Seattle. In contrast, TSA in Seattle took my husband’s cane, but gave him one of theirs to use as he walked through. They also let him keep his shoes on. We are not less secure because people who are disabled are treated with respect.

      When we got back to Boston, I checked with the TSA guys at the checkpoint we had gone through, and they confirmed a cellphone had been logged into lost and found that morning. But TSA lost and found is not on site at the airport so they gave me a number to call. The sweet young thing who answered the phone said I would have to come into the office and identify the phone. I suggested she just let me call the phone. Then she could use my Fedex account to ship the phone to me. The Fedex part she got. But my calling the phone to identify it was a novel idea. Fortunately, the battery wasn’t dead, and the call went through. She was very nice and very polite to me, but apparently having an IQ over 100 isn’t a requirement for the job. If she has as many phones as she says she has, and identifying the brand, model, and when and where the phone was confiscated wasn’t enough to identify it, how was my driving to some obscure office in the city to look at it going to add anything?

      I need to see your papers (said in a German accent)

    • 49erDweet says:

      Has got to have something to do with those individual states having long-standing insecurity or bureaucratic bad practices during the identification process in the issuance of drivers licences/ID cards. Each state sets their own rules.

    Drudge Reporting that’s she’s sick! Wow! Is this moving quickly or what?…


    • DandyTIger says:

      Good way for her to get out and save face (and get sympathy points).

    • elliesmom says:

      The strokes I might buy. MS usually hits women by their 50’s. One of the symptoms is fatigue, and it’s hard to believe someone suffering from chronic fatigue could keep up the schedule she kept as SoS. Maybe she’s just become symptomatic, but maybe the person suggesting it is getting her confused with Jed Bartlett.

    BREAKING: Obama Admin Had Tapes Proving Bergdahl Deserted and Joined Taliban – Ignored Them at Trial

    Retired Colonel David Hunt broke the news tonight on The O’Reilly Factor that the the Obama administration had proof that Bowe Bergdahl deserted to the Taliban.
    The Obama administration did not use the evidence in his trial.

    Oh my. Things are looking bad.

    For First Time Ever=> Hillary Clinton Viewed Negatively By MAJORITY of New Yorkers

    Wow! Even New Yorkers can’t stand her.

    For the first time ever, a majority of New York state registered voters view Hillary Clinton negatively. 51% of registered New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of the former New York Senator and Secretary of State.
