“I only did it to protect… you”
David French has a piece at NRO titled Dear Yahoo, Fire Katie Couric. In it, he explains the fraud she has committed and why Yahoo! ought to cut her loose.
(NRO) Dear Yahoo, let me put this in plain English for you. Your premier news personality is “proud” of lying. She “supports” a statement that purports to justify those lies as a form of creative “pause.” This would be a firing offense at any decent opinion journal, much less an organization that purports to objectively report the news. Americans can no longer trust a single news report or a single interview from Couric. They now know that she will unashamedly and proudly deceive them to advance her own ideological agenda.

This poem came in my inbox this morning. It was attributed to anonymous, but something rang a bell. So I Googled it and sure enough, the attribution was posted here on the Grok three years ago. Anyway, seeing that Hillary is muddling for President and Oblunder is sounding off on foreign policy which reminds me of a fish discussing the merits of a bicycle, I thought I’d post it.
“THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI” — By John E. Roberts
We’re the battling boys of Benghazi,
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
Defending our country we loved so well.
It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
Fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought and we fought and we fought ’til we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack and Hillary didn’t give a damn.
Just two dead Seals who carried the load
No thanks to us…we were just
“Bumps In The Road”.
If that red arrow is pointing at the person, that has got to be the most complete and well-done transgender job I’ve ever seen!
Okay, I’m serious now. That is the new pro Hillary ad swirling around the Internet with the intent, and I’m guessing here, of trying to appeal to white men saying basically, “You can be a man and also vote for a woman”.
But I believe one of the many mistakes they are making here, besides using the poster boy for syphilis (I’m serious, it’s the same guy) See for yourself
Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan, every NH State Senate Democrat, or Democrat candidate need to immediately apologize. For what? For encouraging left-wing agitators and illegal immigrants to do harm to persons and property in the name of their agenda (emphasis mine).
In the course of the riot (not “protest”), they burned American flags, fired pellet guns at people, threw rocks and bottles, attacked a man in a wheelchair, destroyed police vehicles, and even critically injured a police horse. To date, the Left has not condemned, or even apologized for, the violence committed by these thugs. By all appearances, the Left seems to approve of the attempt to use violence to stifle free political expression and to coerce its opponents into silence.

These books by Theodore Dalrymple are a must-read for every voter in the state of New Hampshire. The first is, Junk Medicine: Doctors, Lies and the Addiction Bureaucracy.
You will discover that what New Hampshire is doing right now is laying the groundwork for an unassailable and ever-expanding government bureaucracy whose legacy will be, not to resolve the so-called heroin epidemic, but to capitalize on it. Using the language of compassion they will institutionalize state solutions under the guise of “treatment,” build a state-centric maze of counselors, therapists, and doctors–all feeding at the taxpayer through–all of whom will insist to their dying breath that we can’t go on with out them.

The UL has yet another evergreen piece on if NH would keep its FITN status during Presidential primaries as the RNC is already contemplating changing things up for the next primary. Nothing new but what caught my eye was the complete idiocy on the part of NH GOP RNC Committeeman Steve Duprey – it’s like he’s absolutely clueless on the differences between the Federal Government and “the various States” – and the Republican Party:
In any prospective leap-frogging on the nominating calendar, New Hampshire would maintain its leadoff primary status, but face a penalty for delegates not being seated. Anyway, that’s one view or possibility.
Efforts to have a “closed primary” system, closing the door to independents, runs counter to the 10th amendment, which assigns powers not delegated to the U.S. to the states and the people, Duprey contends.

Obama: “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money“
“The 8,200 nine-bedroom home in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood where President Obama and his family will live after he leaves office next year“
Approx. value = $6 Million
Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our elected officials WOULD contemplate “is this Constitutional”?
Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-New York): “The Second Amendment only protects the people who want all the guns they can have. The rest of us, we’ve got no Second Amendment. What are we supposed to do?”
My first thought was “well, start wanting guns, you silly” but that would have been too light of a slap on the wrist. Read the whole thing!

On Jimmy Kimmel last night, Trump agreed to debate Sanders, if Sanders, or the network, made a suitably large donation to charity.
Bernie immediately replied via Twitter “Game On!”
Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have seemingly agreed in principle to give the world the debate it’s been waiting for.
Appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in a show that aired Wednesday night, Trump said he would be willing to debate Sanders if proceeds from such an event went to charity. Read the whole thing!
Now that they have set the ship of state on fire and sent it rudderless toward the rocky shore, New Hampshire State Senators are finding all sorts of reasons not to run for re-election. ‘I’ve done enough damage,’ would be the honest response but no, instead we get, “I want to spend more time with family.”
The latest “rat” to jump from the burning ship (If I may suggest the USS Raleigh, on the state flag) is Nancy Stiles, the reason we ever had to have a discussion about expanding Medicaid in the Granite State. Had a real Republican been in that seat instead of Stiles this would never have been an issue. Read the whole thing!
What does Russia do when terrorists shoot at them from inside a mosque? They reduce it to a pile of rubble.
So Katie Couric put out a gun control documentary, Under the Gun. And evidence today shows that it was selectively edited with the intention of portraying the pro 2nd Amendment advocates as ignorant at best, dimwitted and stupid at worst. But there is no doubt; the editing was deliberate and mendacious. Unfortunately, for Ms Couric, raw audio released today showing the truth. See here for the comparison.
Here is brother James O’Keefe at Project Veritas on the issue.
Don’t trust them. Never trust them.
… funny… I hear fathers self identify as tooth fairies in New Hampshire too. Odd.
