QOTD: "The internal newsletter of the Democrat Party, which makes itself available to outsiders under the name “The New York Times,” field-tests the most pitiful spin ever attempted. We know you’re in the bag for this failing Administration, guys, but you can still exercise some discretion over which emailed White House talking points you build into “news” stories...

...the Times tries to help out by suggesting a fresh spin for Obama defenders: he’s golfing and partying as a gesture of defiance to both terrorists and his domestic critics. I invite you to try – I mean, really try, sit there quietly for a few minutes and let your mind slip fully into the clouds of conjecture – and imagine media outlets even suggesting that a Republican president’s irresponsible, self-indulgent behavior was such a gesture of defiance. You can’t do it. Even if J. K. Rowling is reading this, she can’t do it. There are limits to even the most bountiful imagination." --John Hayward

MARK LEVIN: Former pot- and coke-head is hooked on golf like drug addicts are hooked on drugs.

By Mark Levin


They're at war with us and our pathetic president is playing golf. He's playing golf again today. He's hooked on golf like drug addicts are hooked on drugs. He used to do pot, he used to do coke, now he does golf. Unbelievable. And these pictures are sent all over the world. Every hellhole where these cockroaches live and function and rape and destroy they see it! They see him laughing five minutes after he gives that pathetic commentary. On the golf course. And he's supposed to represent us.

He pretends he's Lincoln. Lincoln! What do you think Lincoln would do under these circumstances? You think he would tolerate it? He thinks he's FDR Do you think FDR would tolerate this? He's a nobody when the history books are written. This isn't about firsts. The presidency doesn't exist for him, the presidency exists for us.

When a fellow American is so horribly abused and the other captors, it is said they used to beat the hell out of him because he was an American and his brother was in the Air Force. This poor guy. And this family. And have your son decapitated when you want to reach into that television screen and put your hand around that piece of crap's neck who is doing it to him and squeeze the freaking life out of him and we can't reach him? Bullcrap! And the Brits, to their credit, they think they know who he is. And when they know who he is our pathetic president should put a $25 million bond on his head. Cockroaches have been known to turn on cockroaches. Because that's what they do.

Good lord, I tell you what. Two bad elections and look it's happened to us as a people. Look what's happened to us. Look what's happened in the country. Look what's been done to the presidency. Look what's been done to our government. Look what's been done to our military. Look what's been done to our border. Look what's been done to our economy. Two freaking elections.

Kansas Democrat Senate candidate Dave Domina got rich — very, very rich — while "looking out for the little guy"

By Deena Winter

LINCOLN, Nebraska – Democratic Senate nominee Dave Domina bills himself as a champion of the little guy, but his financial disclosure shows he is fabulously wealthy.

Domina is one of the most prominent trial lawyers in the state and worth between $20 million and $82 million, according to the financial disclosure forms he submitted to the secretary of the U.S. Senate.

His net worth could be much higher, since he valued two farms owned by his spouse or dependent at “over $1 million,” and candidates aren’t required to report the value of their personal residences. It’s difficult to pinpoint his precise net worth, since candidates report their assets, salary and liabilities in broad ranges, such as $250,000 to $500,000. Or “over $50 million.”

But clearly, Domina is a wealthy man. He would rank 19th on Roll Call’s list of the 50 richest members of Congress.

His wealth easily overshadows his Republican opponent: The Republican nominee, Ben Sasse, reported assets of between $873,000 and $2.4 million. Sasse was president of Midland University in Fremont before resigning to focus on his campaign.

Domina has built a reputation by representing people who take on large, multi-national corporations, insurance companies and banks. In one of his high-profile cases, he won a $1.3 billion jury verdict for cattlemen against the nation’s largest slaughterhouse, which was accused of manipulating prices, although the verdict was overturned on appeal.

He criticizes the notion that corporations are people, and he has lamented the fact that the billionaire class keeps growing while the middle class shrinks. He may not be a billionaire, but he’s certainly a multi-millionaire.

CALIFORNIA ACTION ALERT: Stop SB53, the Ammo Registration and Eventual Gun Confiscation Bill

By NRA-ILA

Your calls, e-mails and faxes are working! Senate Bill 53 has been stalled on the Assembly floor for days awaiting a vote. State legislators have admitted receiving tens of thousands of e-mails OPPOSING SB 53.

The war over SB 53 is heating up in Sacramento and now anti-gun advocates are attempting to split gun owners by trying to buy the support of hunters. The newest amended version of SB 53 will continue to BAN the mail and internet sales of ammunition to firearms owners in California, unless you have a hunting license. Supporters of SB 53 think that they can pretend to be "pro- hunting" while they are still violating the rights of firearms owners statewide.

Because of your efforts to OPPOSE SB 53, the supporters of SB 53 are desperately trying to SAVE AND PASS SB 53 by watering it down to benefit of select group of gun owners. You can be sure that if SB 53 is enacted this year, they will be back in 2015 to pass the full agenda of restricting ammunition sales to the rest of the law-abiding firearms owners in California.

Call AND e-mail the state Assembly NOW and tell them that hunters ARE firearms owners AND we stand UNITED in OPPOSING SB 53. Contact information for the state Assembly can be found here.

ROACH MOTEL: 3 Hamas generals were in a tunnel 30 meters underground when they were squashed like bugs

Via Israel Matzav comes this intriguing report, one certain to strike terror into the hearts of Hamazis everywhere.
If you have any doubts that Thursday's hit of three senior Hamas commanders in Gaza indicates that Israeli intelligence has penetrated to the highest levels of the Hamas command, read the article below in conjunction with the tweet above from Khaled Abu Toameh.
This was not just another strike, not just another assassination. The killing of the three constituted an indication that something in the intelligence discipline at the very top of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades has cracked.
The Shin Bet, as the intelligence behind the strike, and the IDF, as the operational arm, targeted the trio in a building in a crowded Rafah neighborhood on one of the heaviest days of fighting thus far. Thus this was a very different strike from the one at the start of the Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012 when the Hamas military commander, Ahmed Jabari, was assassinated in a surprise attack that marked the beginning of that operation. Given that the fighting had re-escalated since Tuesday, and that Israel was known to be trying to hit the Hamas military leadership, the three had taken every possible precaution to evade Israeli intelligence. Those precautions simply were not good enough.
It can be assumed that whether or not Muhammad Deif is still alive, those members of the Hamas military leadership who have survived are now desperately trying to figure out what went wrong. How could it be that after long weeks in which Israel was unable to get to any of the heads of the military wing, now, within 48 hours, the Shin Bet located one of Deif’s hideouts and killed three other members of the Hamas general staff?
It should be stressed again: Two of the three were not mere senior commanders of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades. Muhammad Abu Shamala, the “head of the southern command” and Raed al-Attar, the commander of the Rafah area, were part of the founding generation of the Hamas military wing — along with Deif and several others who are no longer with us, including Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh and Emad Akel. They were among Deif’s closest brothers-in-arms — long-term veterans with experience and knowledge that cannot be easily replaced.
Abu Shamala and al-Attar are tied to almost every major attack in and from the Rafah area since 2001. These include the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit on a tunnel raid into Israel in which two other soldiers were killed, and even the killing of 16 Egyptian soldiers on the Gaza-Sinai-Israel border two years ago. Thus the two had tangled not only with Israel, but also with Egypt, which knew of their ties to terrorist organizations in the Sinai.

I'm reminded of The Onion's fabulous 9/11 story entitled "Hijackers Surprised To Find Selves In Hell."

According to Hell sources, the 19 eternally damned terrorists have struggled to understand why they have been subjected to soul-withering, infernal torture ever since their Sept. 11 arrival.

"There was a tumultuous conflagration of burning steel and fuel at our gates, and from it stepped forth these hijackers, the blessed name of the Lord already turning to molten brass on their accursed lips," said Iblis The Thrice-Damned, the cacodemon charged with conscripting new arrivals into the ranks of the forgotten. "Indeed, I do not know what they were expecting, but they certainly didn't seem prepared to be skewered from eye socket to bunghole and then placed on a spit so that their flesh could be roasted by the searing gale of flatus which issues forth from the haunches of Asmoday."

Cadillac to Throw Down Against Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series

So... despite the government bailout and the recall skulduggery, I hope for the best.

General Motors global product development chief Mark Reuss revealed Tuesday that Cadillac will press ahead with an F-segment sedan built upon a new platform.



The Detroit News reports the new Cadillac will slot above the full-size XTS, and will throw down against the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7 Series.

Reuss adds that the flagship sedan is important for the brand “if it is to compete as a serious luxury carmaker” in the top luxury segment...


If it's to "compete as a serious luxury carmaker", I'd humbly suggest that moving all manufacturing to right-to-work states might be a good start.

14 Reasons the U.S. Economic Bubble is Ready to Burst

By Michael Snyder

Did you know that a major event just happened in the financial markets that we have not seen since the financial crisis of 2008? If you rely on the mainstream media for your news, you probably didn't even hear about it. Just prior to the last stock market crash, a massive amount of money was pulled out of junk bonds. Now it is happening again. In fact, as you will read about below, the market for high yield bonds just experienced "a 6-sigma event". But this is not the only indication that the U.S. economy could be on the verge of very hard times. Retail sales are extremely disappointing, mortgage applications are at a 14 year low and growing geopolitical storms around the world have investors spooked. For a long time now, we have been enjoying a period of relative economic stability even though our underlying economic fundamentals continue to get even worse. Unfortunately, there are now a bunch of signs that this period of relative stability is about to end. The following are 14 reasons why the U.S. economy's bubble of false prosperity may be about to burst...

#1 The U.S. junk bond market just experienced "a 6-sigma event" earlier this month. In other words, it is an event that is only supposed to have a chance of 1 in 500 million of happening. Billions of dollars are being pulled out of junk bonds right now, and that has some analysts wondering if a financial crash is right around the corner.

#2 The last time that we saw a junk bond rout of this magnitude was back during the financial crash of 2008. In fact, as the Telegraph recently explained, bonds usually crash before stocks do...

The credit market usually leads the equity market during turning points, as happened when credit markets cracked first in 2008.

Will the same thing happen this time around?

#3 Retail sales have missed expectations for three months in a row and we just had the worst reading since January.

#4 Things have gotten so bad that even Wal-Mart is really struggling. Same-store sales at Wal-Mart have declined for five quarters in a row and the outlook for the future is not particularly promising.

FIGURES: Anti-Gun Democrat Threatens to Kill Researcher Conducting Survey on Second Amendment

Yes, these Communists progressives are truly the most tolerant of people and certainly all about the Constitution that each swore an oath to uphold.

Each election cycle, the Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance contacts the 280-plus candidates running for the Minnesota House in hopes of surveying them about their views on gun rights.

As you’d probably expect, some candidates choose not to respond to GOCRA’s questionnaire. No biggie. But the organization is recommending Rep. Ron Erhardt (D-Edina) receive anger management therapy after he allegedly threatened to kill GOCRA President Andrew Rothman when he was contacted about the survey.

Earlier this summer, GOCRA sent two emails asking Erhardt, 84, to respond to their questions. He didn’t respond, so at 5:19 p.m. on July 19, Rothman followed up with a phone call.

Here’s how that conversation went, according to an affidavit signed by Rothman:

When contacted, the individual answering the phone identified himself as Ron Erhardt. Your affiant identified himself and reminded Rep. Erhardt of the approaching questionnaire deadline. Rep. Erhardt indicated that he did not intend to complete the survey. Your affiant, following the procedure used with each candidate, reminded Mr. Erhardt that GOCRA’s policy was to give a special “F*” grade to candidates with no voting record or survey, as set out in the “How will this information be used?” section of the introduction…

Rep. Erhardt responded, yelling, “Give me a double F! No more surveys! You come near me, and I’ll blow your head off!” Rep. Erhardt then disconnected the phone call. The call’s duration was 78 seconds.

Wouldn't it be nice if these nitwits actually read the Constitution once in a while? I know, I'm a dreamer.
