Hillary Clinton told Dianne Sawyer she can relate to the pain of average America, because … you know … she and Bill left the White House “dead broke” and had to “really struggle.” Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.
- Bill and Hillary left the White House with Bill’s presidential pension, a guaranteed minimum income of $200,000/year.
- Bill then received a $12 million advance on his memoir. It is estimated that he has earned around $41 million since as a speaker and another $15 million for investment advice.
- Hillary has earned about $5 million in speaking fees, plus her salaries as a New York Senator and then Secretary of State.
- Their home in Bedford Hills, NY, is worth nearly $11 million.
The average employed American household earns about $50,000 per year. The Clintons pull down $200,000 for a single speech. But yeah … I’m sure they know what regular Americans are facing in this Democrat economy she and her cronies helped create. NOT.
Kristina Ribaldi is a gun-toting Grizzly Mama. This is her story:
I had a stalker for five years. Restraining order: Check. Do not contact order: Check. We spent thousands of dollars putting up security lights, obscured glass, even got an attack dog. Guess what? He still tried to enter our backyard and our home. He was caught no less than four times trying to enter into our yard. He was continually arrested, slapped on the wrist with trespassing charges and released in a matter of days / weeks. I also testified in court against him. Let the judge and the stalker know that I would protect myself with deadly force if necessary. It was not until I chambered a round in our shotgun (unmistakeable sound) at the window. He continued to stalk / peep / trespass and violate the lives of countless other victims. He did not continue to stalk me. I found out later that this stalker was a known meth user. Do you think any female could stop a predator hopped up on meth without a firearm? If you do you’re an idiot. This is why I carry. I’m a mom. I have an obligation to protect myself and my children. I live in a small town with good police officers. They could not save me. Women: Protect yourself. Learn basic self defense and if you’d shoot it, carry a gun. If you wouldn’t shoot it: Don’t carry a gun! It’ll be used against you. Know yourself. Learn your limits.
These beauty pageant answers became famous for making no sense whatsoever.
Miss Teen USA** 2007 – Miss South Carolina “answers” a question [:49]
Miss Utah USA Gives Worst Pageant Answer Since Miss South Carolina [1:04]
But the winner of Sunday’s Miss USA pageant got some bossy liberal panties in a bunch for saying women should learn self-defense.
Miss Nevada Interview Response [1:00]
Huffington Post’s Mandy Velez tweeted she was sorry Miss Nevada won, because self-defense, then tweeted her hope that “Nevada uses her media tour to reiterate that teaching girls self defense is NOT the best way to protect against assault.” Ummmmmmmm, Mandy? You do know that “reiterate” means to say the SAME THING several times, right? Or don’t they bother much with vocab at HuffPo?
Cosmopolitan editor Elisa Benson said it was “icky to pretend like self defense is the answer.” The derpitude is strong in this one. Her own rag published “How to Save Your Ass With Self Defense” @ http://www.cosmopolitan.com/advice/tips/self-defense
Other LibTweeters opined that the real solution was to “teach men not to rape.” Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Cuz “let’s all be victims together” is sooooo much better than what my karate instructor told us girls, which was heavy on “kick him in the balls, then stick your thumbs in his eyes.”
**On a personal note: I was in the Miss Teen USA pageant back in the day. No, not at the high level. I was in a prelim. Our participation consisted entirely of walking on stage and having somebody point at a few girls who were kept on while the rest of us were shooed away. That was IT. Nobody ever talked to us. We didn’t DO anything but walk on to the stage, stand and smile, then get sorted and dismissed. My mom said she thought they were just putting together a nice-looking crowd of girls in a variety of colors to ship on to the next level. One of the other girls said backstage that she’d traveled with a girl who claimed she’d already been told she was going to be Miss Teen USA. I was inclined to believe it. – CtH
The video of Obama working out in a Polish Marriott gym is not a joke. The Secret Service didn’t shut down the gym for him and someone there surreptitiously video taped the president exercising. I looked at the various versions and picked this one to share cuz it was hands down the funniest.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: Putincize!
The CNN report of the leaked video called it “nothing embarrassing.” Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiight. Just like the one below is “nothing embarrassing” … except it totally is, especially since it wasn’t filmed surreptitiously. They did this on PURPOSE!
Obama and Biden jog round the White House in bizarre video for Michelle’s Let’s Move campaign
Remember when Lefties play video clips of Bush trying to open a locked door … over and over and over … and laughed hysterically at how foolish he looked? Me too.
One of the five Gitmo detainees exchanged for deserter Bowe Bergdahl was Mohammed Fazi (or Fazl … I saw both).
In 1999, Taliban forces led by Mohammed Fazi swept through a village on the Shomali plain north of Kabul in a scorched-earth offensive that prompted some 300,000 people to flee for their lives.
The villages of this area were once the orchard of central Afghanistan, and the plain’s carefully tended vineyards were famous for their grapes. When the Taliban seized control, they systematically demolished everything … blowing up houses, burning fields and seeding the land with mines.
Mohammed Fazi played a major role in the destruction.
Obama says it was his decision to release these evil men and that he’s not sorry. Therefore, responsibility for every harm done by these thugs from now on rests squarely on Barack Obama’s shoulders.
NBC: It was my decision [:49]
(Please notice in the interview how Obama does NOT answer the question about why he ignored the law that requires him to inform Congress before releasing any Gitmo detainee.)

As usual,my cup runneth over with a plethora of marginally interesting things to boggle your mind. It promises to be another week of outrage,pain and governmental excess. There are a couple links to articles about Cankles,among others,so have your Maalox ready and dive right in.
Alison Grimes is running against Mitch McCornpone in Kentucky. She’s pretending to be pro-coal energy. Problem is it was discovered the model in her ad is from France. The ad is as phony as she is.
SOMEBODY MENTION MANURE SPREADERS?
ON JUNE 6,2014 “PEE WEE” MARTIN, 93, DUPLICATED THE PARACHUTE JUMP HE DID 70 YEARS EARLIER. IT WAS A DUAL JUMP WITH ANOTHER PARACHUTIST. THIS GUY IS AS TOUGH AS A .25 STEAK.
