Here are a few items that are unrelated but worth a look, if you have nothing else to do.

Flashback: Obama Mocked the Idea That a US Election Could be Rigged

It wasn’t until after Donald Trump won the election that the Left got all twitchy about the election having been rigged.  Before the election, when they thought Hillary had it locked up, they said rigging an American election was impossible.

Obama:  “There’s no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s election in part because they’re so de-centralized and the numbers of votes involved. There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there’s incidences which that will happen this time.”

Obama went on to mock Trump and told him to “stop whining” and get votes so he can win the election.


Obama-appointed judges blocking Trump’s immigration crackdown


The judges in those deportation cases have rejected Mr. Trump’s argument that he has wide latitude to decide who gets kicked out, without having to worry about district courts second-guessing him on facts of the case.  Instead, the judges said, they get to decide their jurisdiction, and that extends to reviewing Mr. Trump’s immigration policy.

For low-income residents, Philadelphia unveiling income-based water bills

The Philadelphia Water Department next month will launch a low-income assistance program that offers payments starting at $12 per month and is open even to those who haven’t fallen behind on their bills. For those who have, that debt would be frozen indefinitely.

Officials are hoping to enroll upward of 50,000 households, five times those in the city’s current program for low-income payers.

    Schiff Blocks Witnesses From Testifying In Russia Probe

    What they’ve done to Carter Page is despicable. They’ve slandered him as a spy, surveilled him using a fake opposition research inspired as partial authorization, asked him to testify and then when he wants to to clear his name, refuse him the opportunity to do so.

    Left-Wing “Antifa” Radicals Plan To Desecrate Graves Of Confederate Soldiers In Gettysburg

    The anti-history crowd responsible for the eradication of Civil War statues and monuments around the country is destroying tourism in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

    Much of the original Gettysburg battlefield is preserved and maintained by the National Park Service. The Gettysburg History Museum, a separate entity, is also a well-frequented attraction. Or it was.

    And it’s the Museum that’s publicly lamenting the damage they claim is caused by extreme revisionists.

    On their public Facebook page, the Gettysburg History Museum said protesters are killing tourism.

    House Republicans demand Ginsburg’s recusal from Trump travel ban case

    Dozens of congressional Republicans are demanding that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse herself from ruling on President Trump’s travel ban case before the Supreme Court hears arguments in October, saying she’s already shown she can’t be an impartial jurist when it comes to Mr. Trump.
    The court issued an unsigned per curiam opinion, so Justice Ginsburg didn’t reveal her personal leanings, but her participation signals she’s not likely to step aside.

    Six Teens Accused of Stealing Porsche, Blowing $200K on Gold Teeth and Presents for Moms

    The suspects, between the ages of 14 and 16, stand accused of robbing the North Hutchinson Island, Florida, home of Brett Browning on April 27, according to the Daily Mail.

    The robbery victim told police his 2014 Porsche Cayman–valued at up to $60,000–was missing, as well as $200,000 he had hidden in his home. The thieves also stole a 380-caliber Ruger pistol and a revolver.

    The stolen Porsche was discovered near the home of one of the teens, and police reported that all six of the suspects left fingerprint evidence inside the car.
    The teens purchased cars, jewelry, and other expensive items. The inventory of illicitly purchased items includes $11,000 for gold teeth, $10,000 for a gold chain, $3,500 for a gold bracelet, $80,000 for a Dodge Challenger for one of the teen’s mothers, and $25,000 for a 2009 Mercedes C300, among other purchases. Another teen said he gave his mother $40,000 in cash and bought an Audi A4 car for her.

    Police also said the robbery was essentially random, as the teens walked through the victim’s neighborhood knocking on doors to see if they could find a house with no one present.

    CNN Wrote An Article About…Obama’s Jeans

    CNN capped off a month-long nightmare with a Wednesday tweet and an article about former President Barack Obama’s “jeans game.”
    Obama’s jeans game gets strong(er)
    CNN apparently believed publishing an article about Obama wearing jeans–and tweeting it from the “CNN Politics” account, no less–would help their reputation with their audience.
    “The collared, short-sleeved shirt, tucked neatly into the waistband, the telltale sneakers — it all still says “Dad,” but in a far more stylish way,” she wrote of a photo of Obama from Tuesday. “He’s embraced a dark wash and he’s acknowledged that legs have shape.”

    Maxine Waters Attacks Ben Carson at Town Hall, Wants to ‘Take Him Apart’

    At the town hall in Gardena, Calif., Waters said that Carson should go back to his former profession of being a surgeon, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Waters also told the crowd that the next time Carson went before the House Financial Services Committee, she would “take him apart.” Waters is the top Democrat on that committee.

    Trump Attacks ‘Crazy’ Mika Brzezinski: She Was ‘Bleeding Badly From a Face-Lift’

    The president of the United States took time out of his Thursday morning to attack ‘low I.Q.’ Brzezinski and her co-host fiancé ‘Psycho Joe’ Scarborough.
    Then Trump christened new nicknames for his one-time pals and tossed out an insult aimed at Brzezinski’s looks:

    “Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

    Trump’s Travel Ban Is About To Take Effect

    President Donald Trump’s fiercely litigated travel ban will take effect at 8 p.m. EST Thursday.

    The ban prohibits migrants from six countries with high instances of terrorism — Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen — from entering the country without an established, significant connection to the United States.
    The Supreme Court stayed several lower court rulings barring enforcement of the president’s order Monday, but provided an exemption for foreign nationals possessing a “bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”


  9. Dog & baby poster: That was LOL funny. I’ve seen the pix before, but this is the funniest caption. 😆

    As for the Gettysburg protest: as somebody on Ace commented, they’ll be meeting old gray-haired men with muskets (which aren’t loaded) and bayonets (which are sharp) who sleep on wool blankets on the ground for entertainment. The protesting idiots may get more “fun” than they counted on.

    And as for the brain surgeon & the gal with the James Brown hair, let me see if this swipe from the morning report on Ace will work…

    Even as dumb as some of these folks have proved themselves to be, it’s hard to believe the “climate change” tweet with beach pic was real. Except she missppelledd “inpeach” so it probably is.

    • That tweet came from a parody account. I really don’t like things like that, and in Maxine’s case they are completely unnecessary, as she says plenty of crazy things and there’s no need to invent stuff.

      As for the dog one, I don’t know where they’re getting their information. The correct number is closer to one in twenty-five.

    Okay, then. Good. I said it looked dubious, but…!

    Speaking of lunatic congresscritters, I was looking at Guam on the googlymaps today, and I realized it sits on the edge of the deepest honking crevice on the planet; if it did tump over, it’s a long, long way to the bottom.

    BoB: I don’t know where they’re getting their information. The correct number is closer to one in twenty-five.

    That’s the funny part. By panel 2, I’m still thinking “1 in 3? What?” when they both turn to look at me. 😀

    Somebody did one of those roving interviews asking people the percentage of homo in society. All were way off, high, of course. Encouraged by the TV shows and flicks these days, where the percentage is around one in three.

    I think the true number is less than 0.1%, adjusting for a morally failed society encouraging perverse inclinations and randy experimentations. But it varies greatly from place to place, say, urban San Francisco to rural Dallas.

    🙄 😀
