THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND LYING: LIKE PEAS AND CARROTS

BENGHAZI AND THE TERRIFIED LEFT (CONT.)

How scared is the left over Benghazi? Well, yesterday we had the left wing drone, Eleanor Clift, telling The McLaughlin Group that Libya Ambassador Chris Stevens was not killed by terrorists, he died of smoke inhalation. I kid you not, she actually said that. Here is the relevant transcript to prove it – including the incredulous reactions of other panel members: ELEANORCLIFT: I would like...

$%#%^#ING RACCOONS

About two weeks ago I blogged about the birds which had decided to make a home in our chimney (Unbeknownst to us, the metal cover had blown off, probably during Hurricane Sandy.  It\’s not the kind of thing I would have noticed). The birds were not a problem.  They were sort of nice to listen to, and we figured it was a mother taking care of her young until...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAHHHH…

Who is Terry Jones?  I wonder how many of you remember that name. Terry Jones was the “pastor” (that\’s using the term loosely) of a congregation numbering, oh, maybe 30 followers in Jacksonville, Florida who, some years ago, threatened to burn a copy of the Koran.  The story became so big – and Jones so elevated – that, for weeks, all we heard about...

Don\’t count on President Obama bragging about this, but… A new McKinsey survey is out, which indicates that 3/4 of the vaunted 8.1 million ObamaCare sign-ups were previously insured. In other words, 6 million of the 8 million were people who had insurance but were forced out of the plans they had selected by ObamaCare, thus forced to take it on so they could have any coverage at...

WHY IS IT ALWAYS ABOUT THEM?

Michelle Obama, speaking of the hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls:  “Inthese girls, Barack and I see our own daughters.”  Wasn\’t it Barack Obama who said about Trayvon Martin: “IfI had a son he\’d look like Trayvon”? Why is it always about them?  And why are the personal references they make always about Blacks?  Malaysia...

WHAT A DAY THIS HAS BEEN….AND IT ISN\’T OVER YET

Up at 6, out at 8 to get from central New Jersey to Queens, for our nephew\’s aufruf (accent the first syllable, pronounce both the “au” and the “u” as you would the double-o in “good” and you\’ve got it right) – which, in simplest terms, is an honor bestowed upon a groom-to-be shortly before his wedding (our nephew and his...
