Obama Jokes, Laughs While Discussing Deadly Munich Attack

HIS WHOLE PRESIDENCY HAS BEEN A FATAL JOKE
“It’s a good reminder of something that I’ve said over the last couple of weeks, which is our way of life, our freedoms, our ability to go about our business every day, raising our kids and seeing them grow up, and graduate from high school and now about to leave their dad,” he said to raucous laughter.

THIS CLUB IS NOT NORMALLY OPEN ON SUNDAY, BUT WAS HOSTING A “TEEN NIGHT’ WHERE ALL AGES WERE ADMITTED. THE YOUNGEST SHOOTING VICTIM WAS 12. WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ALLOW KIDS THAT AGE TO BE RUNNING THE STREET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?

Paging Orville Redenbacher

Given the wonderful news we received today the Democrat convention, in perspective,  seems awfully trifling. Still and all, it promises to be more eventful than the GOP get-together. It may have had something to do with the 6,000 armed security forces protecting the convention goers from the few protesters, like the mope who tried to burn Old Glory and nearly immolated himself. So pop some corn, get comfortable, and ON WITH THE SHOW!

Wikileaks released 20,000 democrat e-mails which confirmed what we already knew. Liberals are a bunch of bottom-feeding mutants.

DID I DO THAT?

The damage is so bad, Debbie Downer is stepping down, but not until after the soiree, although she’ll have no speaking part.

Hillary wasted little time in rewarding The Debster for her loyalty

Surprise, Surprise! Hillary Names Wasserman Schultz Honorary Chair Of Campaign For Taking One For The Team

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton scooped up outgoing Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Sunday afternoon as the honorary chair of her campaign’s 50-state program.

New Dem Convention Chair Now Marcia Fudge, Who Called For Bernie To Step Aside In March
THE JOSTLING FOR A POSITION OF POWER HAS BEGUN

She replaces embattled Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is now resigning as DNC head because of fallout over the WikiLeaks emails that appear to show DNC officials conspiring against Bernie Sanders.

Political strategist and commentator Donna Brazile will lead the DNC as interim chair, while Fudge presides over the convention.
RECALL, IF YOU WILL, DONNA “WE AIN’T GONNA LET THE WHITE BOYS WIN” WAS AL GORE’S CAMPAIGN CHAIR

Donna Brazile Will Remain On CNN For Convention Coverage Before Taking Over As DNC Chair – Update

UPDATED, 5:53 PM: Donna Brazile will continue to appear on CNN as it covers the Democratic National Convention next week, a knowledgeable source tells Deadline. Despite her being named today as the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, plans remain intact for Brazile to be among the network’s key talking-head contributors for the event. The source said, however, that she won’t be paid for her appearances. Brazile is set to take the committee’s reins after the convention, which wraps Tuesday.

Activists Plot Civil Disobedience, Mass Arrests, Infiltration Attempts at DNC

During an in-person interview outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center in downtown Philadelphia, Newkirk revealed that, besides street protests, activists from his group will attempt to infiltrate and disrupt this week’s DNC events from the inside.
Democracy Spring claims it is a movement attempting to “end the corruption of big money in politics and guarantee the right to vote for all Americans.”
DNC erects four-mile eight-foot tall fence around Philly convention site
The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)

CHAOS! Bernie Supporters CRASH Wasserman Schultz Presser with “Email Scandal” Signs and ‘Boos’
Former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz addressed the Florida delegates in Philadelphia. Wasserman Schultz resigned on Sunday following the devastating Wikileaks DNC email scandal.
Bernie supporters heckled the former chair and held up “email” signs in reference to the Wikileaks hacked DNC email scandal.


THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF NOISE ABOUT DISILLUSIONED BERNIE BACKERS SO INCENSED ABOUT THE RIGGED NOMINATION THEY PROMISE TO EITHER NOT VOTE FOR HILLARY OR VOTE FOR TRUMP. THIS REMAINS TO BE SEEN. THAT WOULD REQUIRE A MODICUM OF PRINCIPLE, WHICH MOST DEMOCRAT VOTERS ARE SORELY LACKING IN.

A Party for Tyler

The family had an 8th birthday party for my grandson Tyler at Old Settler’s Park in Rockton,Il. last Saturday. In lieu of gifts they asked everyone to donate to K-Cancer Kids’ baseball team. There was a pretty good crowd there and I even talked to Alisha’s mom (my ex) for the first time in about 30 years. They had a bounce house for the kids and the bloodmobile was there for blood donations. They were busy most of the day.

Suddenly, on the side street in front of the park, bells and sirens rang out. Then came a pink police car, a pink fire engine, two fire trucks from the Village of Rockton, plus an ambulance and a police cruiser and SUV in a grand,noisy caravan and stopped. The pink fire engine travels the country for cancer awareness and gives people sharpies to sign it.

My grandson RJ is like a big brother to Tyler. They were almost inseparable.

These are my motivation to get up every day and do my best to carry on.

There was a local television station doing a taping to air that night. They showed just a few minutes of footage then posted it on their Facebook page. Much to my daughters’ dismay, they made it sound like he was terminal. She called to straighten them out, but as of this posting the FB story hasn’t been changed.
LET ME MAKE ONE THING CLEAR: WE ARE NOT…REPEAT NOT…GIVING UP!!!
THIS LITTLE BOY HAS BEEN THROUGH MORE HELL THAN ANY KID SHOULD HAVE TO ENDURE. THERE’S NO QUIT IN HIM OR US AND WITH PRAYER AND FAITH IN GOD WE’LL SEE THIS THROUGH. MANY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. WE’VE SEEN THE POWER OF ALMIGHTY GOD OVER AND OVER. TYLER WILL KICK CANCER’S ASS. I KNOW IT IN MY HEART.

Behold the Power of the Lord!!!

We have been suffering for the past few months for our dear friend Chrissy. Months with no word has had us fearing the worst. Then this morning, I got a Facebook message from her daughter:

“Sorry I didn’t get on to update…my mom had gotten very weak again, trouble keeping food down etc. She ended up in the hospital last week and then, Praise God! Major miracles happening! She is home and working on regaining strength. But all kinds of healing has happened for her!!!!! My sister was visiting, but I suspect my mom will be back online soon 😄”

If anyone tells you prayer doesn’t work, have them get ahold of me. I’ve got some things to tell them.
THANK YOU, LORD, FOR PRAYERS ANSWERED.
