POST-OP POST

Your intrepid reporter underwent successful cataract surgery yesterday. God bless Medicare. The surgeon was referred by my family doctor and is the best in the city. When he schedules these operations he does an average of 16 in a day.As always,the doctor was running behind so it took an extra hour. The patient behind the curtain next to me in pre-op spoke no English and the nurse had to get a translator on the phone to get the necessary questions answered. When she came to check on me I asked how often they had to do that. She said it was a lot. Welcome to America.

Trump floats unexpected choice for VP

Former Sen. Scott Brown, who represented Massachusetts, but now resides in New Hampshire, got the nod this weekend.

While speaking at a Portsmouth, New Hampshire rally Saturday, Trump said that Brown would make a “very good” vice president.

When Trump asked Brown if he would consider another political run, an audience member suggested a Trump-Brown ticket.

Cruz Camp Concerned Sarah Palin May Endorse Trump in Ames
The Donald Trump campaign announced last weekend they will be making a major announcement on Tuesday in Ames, Iowa at Iowa State University… With a special guest–

“I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”

WOULD SHE RUN AS TRUMP’S V.P. IF ASKED?
IS HE SMART ENOUGH TO REALIZE WHAT A FORCE SHE STILL IS, EVEN AFTER BEING SCREWED OVER BY MCSTAIN?

ABOUT THAT SHAM OF A “PRISONER EXCHANGE”
Obama’s ugly prisoner exchange with Iran

First: It’s a de facto prisoner exchange — of Americans who had done nothing wrong, for Iranians charged with or convicted of real crimes, even if the administration proudly noted that it had refused to spring anyone accused of terrorism

Second: The White House sprang the deal the day it was unlocking $100 billion in Iranian assets as per the nuclear accord.
Obama & Co. insist the nuclear understanding will pave the way to better Iranian behavior, but none of our allies in the region — from the Israelis to the Saudis — buys it.

Instead, they’re figuring out what they have to do to guard their own security now that America no longer has their backs.

KHAMEINI: WHAT ABOUT THE JEW?
OBAMA: F*CK THE JEW
FROM 2013:
Reports: American who went missing in Iran worked for CIA

Both the State Department and Bob Levinson’s family have long denied he was working for the U.S. government when he disappeared on a trip to Iran in 2007.

But Thursday’s reports from the Washington Post and the AP claim that Levinson had been on a CIA mission to dig up information.
‘Extremely Betrayed’: Family of Ex-FBI Agent Believed Held By Iran Lashes Out at White House
“We had to learn it from the TV ourselves, and that’s very disappointing and heartbreaking,” Robert Levinson’s wife, Christine, told the Associated Press. She used stronger language in another interview, telling ABC News that she felt “extremely betrayed” by the White House.

    Trump Earns Endorsement of John Wayne Family at Actor’s Birthplace: ‘This Is the Place in Iowa Where Legends Are Made’

    Aissa Wayne, John Wayne’s daughter, joined Trump at a podium inside the small museum in her father’s hometown here. She said:

    Welcome to the John Wayne birthplace. Now, this is the place in Iowa where legends are made. Now we have somebody that I want to welcome personally here to the birthplace of John Wayne, and that is Mr. Donald Trump. Hopefully, for America, he will be the next president of the United State. The reason I am here to support Mr. Trump is because America needs help. We need a strong leader and we need someone like Mr. Trump with leadership qualities, someone with courage, someone that’s strong like John Wayne. And I’ll tell you what, if John Wayne were still here, he’d be standing right here instead of me. So with that, I just want you to welcome Mr. Donald Trump.

    BREAKING: Federal Judge Obama Appointed Strikes Down His Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Claim
    AS IF IT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE…OR EVER DID

    U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Tuesday that the Justice Department’s public disclosures about its response to the so-called “gun walking” controversy undercut Obama’s executive privilege claim.

    The standoff over the records led to a House vote in 2012 holding then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over the records. The House later initiated a lawsuit to try to force disclosure of the files.

  4. Cataract surgery – Good news, Pete, glad to hear it. Your health is always in my prayers. (Worth every penny you paid for them. 😀 )

    I don’t get thrills (up my leg or otherwise) as a rule, especially about matters political, but I genuinely got a thrill years ago when I ran across a photo, at that biker’s rally in DC I think, of Sarah Palin shaking hands with Allen West. It was just an electric moment, and it was really about then I started taking politics seriously again.

    Some of “the thrill is gone” on both those folks. West for his support of the black farmers scam and weak walk-back of it. And Palin, well, I just wish she hadn’t chosen between Cruz and Trump, really. Bristol had some snark in response to Rick Tyler’s statement, and Sarah, sad to say, linking to Bristol, chimed in with “Is THIS Why People Don’t like Cruz?” but at least Cruz himself stayed classy:

    “I love @SarahPalinUSA Without her support, I wouldn’t be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan.”

    I’m not a big fan of anybody – wish we could merge the better parts of Trump and Cruz and cull the worse parts, but I’ll hold my nose and vote GOP – again – because, anyone but those commies.

    God bless and save the USA.

    I’ve seen some of the articles about Sarah endorsing Trump.her son,Track,was charged with domestic battery and I saw it referred to over and over in the comments sections.If you think the white-hot hatred from the left for Gov. Palin has diminished one iota,you’re gravely mistaken.These libtards are blaming her for Juan mcRino throwing the election in 2008.

      Well, lots of people really hate Trump, too, so I guess they get to double down on the vitriol. I’m still neutral.
