#Breaking: Hillary Clinton Leaves 9/11 Ceremony After A "Medical Episode"

Trigger Warning:
I'm healthy as a horse! Anyone who says otherwise is sexist!
This is a breaking story that's still developing.  Not a whole lot of details:
The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint as she was helped into a van, in what a witness said was “clearly” a medical episode.

US journalist Rick Levanthal of Fox News said: “Source tells me Hillary Clinton ‘clearly having some type of medical episode’.”

He added his unnamed security source said she "had to be helped into her van by her protective detail” at the World Trade Centre.

The source also said her knees had buckled and she had lost a shoe while being helped into the vehicle. 
Continue Reading...

Not much more detail at the link, although there are some pictures.  Hillary Clinton and her campaign have been saying for weeks that she was just fine.  Healthy as a horse.  Stop questioning her you sexist pigs!

I guess the cat's out of the bag now.

From Twitter:
I'll post more details as I get them.

UPDATE: Breitbart has an article with running updates here.  Looks like Hillary Clinton is doing fine now.  Freshly medicated and walking around NYC unassisted.

Hillary Clinton's #BasketOfDeplorables Takes to Twitter

Trigger Warning:
It was the deplorables I tell you! THE DEPLORABLES!
Oh my.  It looks like Hillary Clinton has finally had her Romney-esque 47%, "binders full of women" moment.  Hillary was at a fundraiser where she rather incoherently declared that half of Donald Trump's followers could be placed into a "basket of deplorables."

Trump supporters naturally didn't take too kindly to the insult, no matter how incoherent and rambling it was.  They took to Twitter to voice their opinions, and before you know it #BasketOfDeplorables was trending.
That's right, own it girlfriend!  Turn it back on Hillary and make it a positive.
It's important to keep your deplorables separate from your whites.
Real question is are they part of the ones Hillary deems redeemable?
I say let them keep the smaller basket.  Why waste a good basket on trash?
It WOULD be more honest of her...but this is Hillary Clinton we're talking about.
That's right, know your place you terrible, irredemable, DEPLORABLE racist!
There's that vaunted liberal tolerance I keep hearing so much about.
I keep hearing from liberals how Donald Trump needs to disavow the racists that support him.  What about Hillary Clinton?  Has she disavowed the KKK leader who donated $20,000?  Has she backtracked on her mentor, KKK official Robert Byrd? 
I wonder if Ambassador Stevens was in Hillary Clinton's #BasketOfDeplorables.
A common trend has been Trump supporters actually owning and embracing the #BasketOfDeplorables label.
I like that last one.
Can't argue with that.
Sorry, but the only thing that's objectively true about the #BasketOfDeplorables is that it will be remembered for many years.
I suspect, though, that isn't what Hillary was going for.

India Shaming People Into Pooping Inside

Trigger Warning:
Pictured: A bathroom in India...
It's official, ladies and gentleman.  The Washington Post, the creme de la creme of journalism, has finally run out of things to talk about:
NEW DELHI — India's government has been on a public toilet building spree. Now, it's trying to shame people into using them.

An aggressive new campaign ridicules those who are no longer poor but continue to defecate in the open — a practice that remains common in rural India despite its growing wealth and trappings of modern life.

Television commercials and billboards now carry a message that strike at the heart of the Indian contradiction of being the world’s fastest-growing major economy and also where relieving oneself in the open is the norm in most villages.

Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Clean India” mission set a target of 2019 to end the practice, the government built millions of new toilets.

In fact, the advertisements mock the very idea that India is developing. The tagline says: “Only the habit of using a toilet is real progress.”

And the ridiculing is done by children.
Continue Reading...

I suggest reading the entire article.  It's rather lengthy.  Surprisingly lengthy, in fact.  I never would have thought one could write so much on the subject of poop and pooping outside.

Donald Trump needs to do something controversial, and soon.  I don't know how much more the WaPo staff can take!

Bill Clinton Compares Himself to Robin Hood

Trigger Warning:
Why no I don't think I've lost touch with reality.  Why do you ask?
Bill Clinton defended the Clinton Foundation at a speech in Ohio in which he compared himself to Robin Hood.

Yes, really:

Former President Bill Clinton declares he was a heroic figure at the Clinton Foundation, taking money from wealthy people and redistributing to the poor.

Clinton defended his work at the Clinton Foundation during a speech in Ohio, calling the notion that it was corrupt was “really funny.”

“Here is what I did, I was sort of Robin Hood, except I didn’t rob anybody,” Clinton said. “I just asked people with money to give it to people who didn’t have money and we tried to use it in America and around the world to save jobs, to create jobs and to save lives.”
Continue Reading...

The people of Haiti found out just how much like Robin Hood Bill Clinton really was when the Clinton Foundation scammed them out of billions of dollars.

I wonder what they would have to say about the Clinton Foundation today?  Probably nothing good.

Did Hillary Clinton Manage Benghazi Hearings?

Trigger Warning:
Where there's smoke theres...no fire?
It's looking an awful lot like Hillary Clinton managed to coordinate at least some of the questions she was asked at the Benghazi hearings:
Newly released emails suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide stage-managed her first hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack by feeding specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

"We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11, and these email from Chris Stevens about moving locations,)" Clinton media gatekeeper Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton the morning of the Jan. 23, 2013 hearing.

Click here to read the emails

Right out of the gate, the first hearing question from Menendez that day covered both topics referenced by Reines.

Menendez asked for Clinton’s “insights on the decision-making process regarding the location of the Mission.” The senator added, “can you also in your response, you touched upon it in your opening statement, but what actions were you and your staff taking the night of September 11 and into September 12?"
Continue Reading...

My that sure looks an awful lot like collusion to me.  Of course I'm sure the mainstream media will be all over this topic.  We all know they're chomping at the bit to dive right into the Benghazi scandal and finally deliver the truth to the American people.
Oh, Radius, you so funny!

Female Student Wounds Classmate, Kills Herself in TX

I'm on the go at the moment,  but there is currently an active shooter near a high school close to the border in Texas. 

Link via a local Fox affiliate: 
https://www.google.com/amp/fox6now.com/2016/09/08/texas-high-school-shooting-1-shot-2-on-loose-police-say/amp/

I'll bring updates as soon as I can. 

UPDATE: Student shooter wounds classmate, kills self

 A little time has gone by and it looks like we know more about what happened at Alpine High School in Texas earlier today:
A female student shot and injured another female student and then killed herself inside a Texas high school bathroom on Thursday morning, Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson told ABC.

Dodson said the injured student ran outside seeking help and was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't considered life threatening.

A police officer also suffered non-life threatening injuries when the officer was accidentally shot by a marshal, Dodson said.


Five shots were fired during the incident at Alpine High School, leading to the lockdown of all district schools. A woman who answered the phone at the Alpine Independent School District described the situation as "contained."

None of those shot were immediately identified.

"I am currently monitoring the active shooter situation in Alpine," Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. "I have directed my office to offer any measure of support needed to assist the law enforcement officials currently working this case. I wish to extend prayers and sympathy to any victims' families and their loved ones who have been affected by this senseless act of violence."

A.F. Branco - Hillary's Nukes

Trigger Warning:
Original Post: Branco Cartoon - Brain Freeze
Hey, remember how everyone was saying there's no way in hell they'd trust a guy like Donald Trump with the nuclear codes?  Why, he's likely to fire them off just because it's a day ending in -y!

Keep in mind that Donald Trump isn't the one staffers have said gets confused easily:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “often confused,” according to a 2013 email from her longtime aide Huma Abedin.

The comment, which is likely to attract attention from Clinton’s critics on the presidential campaign trail, was revealed on Monday following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from conservative legal group Judicial Watch.

In the Jan. 26, 2013, message, Abedin gave the note about Clinton while discussing the secretary’s schedule with another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley.

“Have you been going over calls with her for tomorrow?” Abedin asked Hanley. “So she knows [then-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan] singh is at 8?”

“She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call,” Hanley responded. “Will go over with her.”

“Very imp to do that,” Abedin said in response.

“She’s often confused.”
Continue Reading...

Hillary Clinton also blamed mishandling classified information on a private email server on her mental health issues.  Quite simply put, Hillary just plain forgot:

Let's also not forget that it was none other than Hillary Clinton's husband Bill who lost the nuclear codes while he was president.  Not just for a few minutes, or an hour, or even a day.  Bill Clinton lost the nuclear codes for months:
When you're President of the United States, you can lose a vote, you can lose popular support, and you can lose a round of golf. But you're never, ever supposed to lose the biscuit. 

That's what they call the card the president is meant to keep close at hand, bearing the codes that he has to have in order to launch a nuclear attack. And for several months during the Clinton administration, a former top military officer says they lost the biscuit. 

Gen. Hugh Shelton, who served under Clinton as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, tells the story in his just-published memoir, "Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior." 

"At one point during the Clinton administration," Shelton writes, "the codes were actually missing for months. [...] That's a big deal -- a gargantuan deal."
Continue Reading...

Let's review: Hillary Clinton is described as being often confused by her top aide.  She also claimed she just plumb forgot how to handle classified information.  Bill Clinton treated the nuclear football more casually than you and I would a DVD we borrowed from a friend.  A large portion of the American public wants to put these two BACK into the White House.
Jubal Early is always appropriate for any situation...

Iranian Ships Harrass US Patrol Boat...Again

Trigger Warning:
Nothing to see here, move along...
It seems like every week we've got a new story of a US naval warship being harassed by the Iranian navy.  I don't get it, didn't we sign an agreement with them to STOP this sort of nonsense?
Iranian vessels from its Revolutionary Guard Corps harassed another U.S. Navy ship Sunday in the central Persian Gulf, a defense department official tells Fox News.

USS Firebolt, a coastal patrol ship, was shadowed by seven Iranian vessels. Three of the vessels came within 500 yards and shadowed Firebolt for eight minutes. Then one of the Iranian vessels broke off and raced in front of Firebolt and "came to a stop directly in front of the ship" at a range of 100 yards, according to the official.

The U.S. Navy ship attempted multiple radio communications with the Iranian vessel, but there was no reply.

The U.S. ship took evasive action to "narrowly avoid" the Iranian ship which stopped directly in front of it, according to the official.

"Clearly the Iranian behavior has to change," Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said Tuesday.
Continue Reading...

Hell we even paid a RANSOM to Iran to get back our captured US sailors.  You'd think that Iran would stop trying to provoke a shooting war.

Just another example of smart power in the Age of Obama.

Another Reason to #MAGA: No More Amy Schumer

Trigger Warning:
Bye, Felicia. Don't let the door hit you on the way out...
I have some sad news to report today, ladies and gentlemen.  Those of you who are considering casting your vote for Donald Trump in November may want to reconsider.  Why?  Because Amy Schumer will straight up move to Spain if Donald Trump wins:
“That’s what I’m saying with the not being informed because those people aren’t informed,” Schumer said. “You know, if you go, ‘Why don’t you like Hillary?’ they’ll go, ‘She lied about her emails. What else is she going to lie about?’ People get one fact and that’s what they latch on to about a candidate. They’ll go, ‘She lied about that.’ I’m like, ‘Well Donald Trump has a fake college. Donald Trump doesn’t pay his workers. He won’t release his taxes.’ There’s never been a nominee that has not released his taxes. I haven’t had a conversation with anyone who doesn’t like Hillary where they’ve had anything meaningful to say.”

“My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish,” she added. “Because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s just too crazy.”
Continue Reading...

Amy Schumer joins a long list of celebrities who have threatened over the last year to pack up and leave town if Donald Trump is elected president.

Of course the arrogance here is that the country is better for the mere presence of these starlets and celebrities.  They're the elites, you see.  These people are prettier, smarter, and just plain better than the rest of us uneducated rubes.  Celebrities know what's best for us better than we do, and they know for a fact that Donald Trump is bad news.

Our problem, however, is that we just won't listen to them.  We persist in clinging bitterly to our guns and our religion.  Don't we know that guns are evil killing machines?  Dwayne Wade and the NBA told us so!  Religion is so outdated, too.  We've got people like Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye telling us how the world really works, and they're scientists.  Why don't we believe them?

Personally, I think getting rid of some of our vapid celebrities would be a good thing.  Hell I based a whole post around getting people to vote for Trump BECAUSE annoying, A-list celebrities would flee the country in droves.  Despite their entertainment value these celebrities are not the intellectual and cultural powerhouses they see themselves to be.  Amy Schumer ranks well below Kim Kardashian's ass in terms of popularity.  The supposed voids these people leave in Hollywood when they leave will be promptly filled by other Hollywood starlets that are just as pretty, but perhaps just a little bit smarter.

Good-bye, Amy Schumer.  Don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

Radical Islamist Preacher Anjem Choudary Jailed

Trigger Warning:
Pictured: World Class Turd
Fans of Sean Hannity will know the name Anjem Choudary.  The fiery British imam is an unapologetic Islamist supremacist, and has proudly stated that fact for years.  For an example of Choudary's views, here's an interview he did with Sean Hannity just after the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris:

Well it seems the law has finally caught up with Imam Choudary.  The radical cleric found himself in a British court where he was sentenced to five years in jail for supporting ISIS:
Radical preacher Anjem Choudary has been jailed for five-and-a-half years for inviting support for the so-called Islamic State group.

The 49-year-old was convicted at the Old Bailey after backing the group in an oath of allegiance published online.

Police say Choudary's followers carried out attacks in the UK and abroad.
The judge, who described Choudary as calculating and dangerous, passed the same sentence on his confidant Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 33.

Both men were also sentenced to a notification order lasting 15 years, which requires them to tell police if details such as their address change.

Choudary, of Ilford, east London, and Rahman, from Palmers Green, north London, were convicted last month of inviting support for IS - an offence contrary to section 12 of the Terrorism Act 2000 - between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015.

The trial heard the pair also used speeches to urge support for IS, which is also known as Daesh, after it declared a caliphate in the summer of 2014.

Counter-terrorism chiefs blame the preacher and the proscribed organisations which he helped to run, such as al-Muhajiroun, for radicalising young men and women including the killers of soldier Lee Rigby in 2013.

But they said they had been unable to act for many years as Choudary - a former solicitor - had stayed "just within the law".

Looks like Choudary's not going to be seeing the sun for a while.  Good riddance.

Finding #NeverTrump: The Perfect Candidate

Trigger Warning:
We're off to find you the perfect candidate...
"Oh God, Radius, I'm so depressed!"

Aww, what's wrong, Mr. NeverTrump?
"The country's going straight to Hell in a hand-basket.  Donald Trump's probably going to be president, and there's nothing we can do to stop it!"

Wait I thought you guys found your dream candidate.  Isn't that Evan McMullin guy the One True Conservative alternative?  What happened to him?
Did he join Hillary Clinton's Witness "Protection" Program?
"Oh please, the man is the exact kind of Paul Ryan fake conservative that got us into this mess in the first place.  Plus, he looks like some alternate universe Professor X that drives around in a windowless van asking kids if they want to see the mutant puppies he has in the back."
Wow...I literally have no idea how to respond to that...
"It's bad, Radius.  It's real bad."

Well it sounds like you just haven't met the right guy yet.  Quite frankly I had a feeling this might happen.  I've actually been preparing for just such an eventuality.
"You have?"

Yes I have, Mr. NeverTrump.  Look this whole search boils down to one thing: what are you looking for in a perfect candidate.  You're never going to get anywhere if you glom onto whatever weirdo Bill Kristol chooses to parade in front of you.
Sorry, but it's true...
You need to figure out exactly what you want, and then go out there and grab it.
Grab it like a Syrian refugee on New Year's Eve...
"Well...what do I want?"

I know independent thinking is a real challenge for you, Mr. NeverTrump.  That's why I've gone ahead and made a list of characteristics that I think embody the perfect #NeverTrump candidate.
Tell me what you think of these:

1. You want someone who's never going to give you up or let you down, right?

"Oh my God, yes!  I can't count the number of times we've been let down by these damn career politicians.  McCain was a complete dud.  I mean he didn't even want to attack Obama on Jeremiah Wright.  And who the hell stops their campaign to vote for a trillion dollar spending bill?  Romney tanked with his 47% comment, and then he pussed out against Trump.  Even Ted Cruz turned out to be a monumental failure!  Even after Glenn Beck said God spoke to him and told him Ted Cruz would be the next president.  I just don't want to be let down anymore."

2. The perfect candidate is never going to run around and desert you.
"I mean yeah, you never want your candidate to just abandon you when things get tough.  They've got to stick by you through the good times and the bad.  We don't want someone who's just going to run off when the chips are down."

3. Now the perfect candidate is also never going to make you cry.  He's certainly never going to say goodbye, either.
"Umm...okay.  That's...that's kind of an odd way to put it, but yeah why not."

4. Finally, the ideal candidate is completely honest.  He would never tell a lie and hurt you.
"Yes.  Honesty can't be overstated.  Hillary Clinton lies about literally everything.  Ask her five times what color the sky is and you'll get five different answers.  Six if you donate enough to the Clinton Foundation first.  Trump isn't any better.  He lies about his record, he lies about being a conservative, and I know for a fact his hair isn't real!  These lies hurt the American people, and we don't deserve to be hurt anymore."

I hear you, Mr. NeverTrump, I hear you.  I feel the exact same way you do.
Luckily I've found a candidate that matches each and every one of these qualities.  Even better, it's not Donald Trump.
Sorry, Donald...
"Well who the hell is it?  Don't keep me in suspense anymore!"
All you need to do is click right here to see the perfect #NeverTrump candidate.
*clicks*
"..."
"You're such a dick, Radius."
I kid, NeverTrumpers, but only because I have no respect for your beliefs.

#IfMenHadPeriods Has SJWs Bleeding From...Wherever On Twitter

Trigger Warning:
Just when you thought it was safe to go back on Twitter...
The social justice warriors were back at work after taking Labor Day off.  This time they've managed to send the moronic hashtag #IfMenHadPeriods trending on Twitter.  Of course #IfMenHadPeriods they wouldn't be men...they would be women...
Did you just assume my gender!?!?
Just what did the twits on Twitter have to say about #IfMenHadPeriods?  All sorts of hilarious things.  Especially when the conservative side of Twitter decided to weigh in.
I. See. What. You. Did. There.
My God...that sounds even more painful than an actual period...
Can't tell if serious...or a masterful troll...
Not gonna lie...that last one looks like fun...
You know who ignores market forces and makes a product for free?  Social justice feminists who want equality but don't want to pay/do anything for themselves.  Weak, bearded hipster beta males with their man-buns tied too tight that think appealing to the social justice crowd will get them laid.  You know what these people ACTUALLY produce?  Nothing but new generations of mouth-breathing sycophants.

You know who actually produces USEFUL items and services?  Hard-charging, hard-fighting, hard-farting ugly sumbitch men.  Oh, and intelligent, conservative women.  Wouldn't want to be sexist.
Fun fact: no man anywhere has a period.  If your man is having a period he is, in fact, a women.  If your man gets moody once per month for a week he is, in fact, a whiny little bitch.  Another fun fact: there are two genders, no matter what Facebook tells you.
Damn right we would.  Because that's what real men do.  That and not have any periods.
Me too, brother.  What we need is a guidebook or something so we can keep everything straight...err...cisgendered.
The hell?  Why don't tampons have names like that NOW?  Guys would LOVE to buy tampons for their girlfriends.

"Bro, my girl's on her period so I have to get her some tampons."

"What kind are you getting, dude?"

"Bro, she's usually fine with the X5-28, but she's got some heavy flow this month.  She's gotta go with the Nosferatu Unlimited."

"Dude, sweet!"
Heh...
Honestly, this is probably a fairly accurate description of what would happen.
How dare you accuse social justice warriors of bigotry!  I have half a mind to start a hashtag about that!
I could get into that...but I just don't have enough time.
So...a woman then?
To be fair, though, that's pretty much a normal day on Twitter.  I had a sandwich yesterday and got yelled at for being a heteronormative asshole.
I understood literally none of that.
In the end, though, I think this tweet perfectly sums up the nonsense behind #IfMenHadPeriods.  Nothing but yet another social justice hashtag to make social justice warriors feel like they're actually making a difference in the world.  Except they're really not.

Philippine President Calls Obama a "Son of a Bitch"

Trigger Warning:
Not pictured: a respectful leader...
Want to hear a joke?  Okay, Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte walks into a bar and calls President Obama a son of a bitch.
Wait I'm sorry, that wasn't a joke.  That actually happened:
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte warned President Barack Obama on Monday not to question him about extrajudicial killings, or "son of a b---- I will swear at you" when they meet in Laos during a regional summit.

Speaking at the G20 summit in China on Monday morning, Obama said he had heard about Duterte's "colorful" remarks and instructed his staff to see if meetings with Duterte would still be "productive."


Duterte said before flying to Laos that he is a leader of a sovereign country and is answerable only to the Filipino people. He was answering a reporter's question about how he intends to explain the extrajudicial killings to Obama. More than 2,000 suspected drug pushers and users have been killed since Duterte launched a war on drugs after taking office on June 30.

In his typical foul-mouthed style, Duterte responded: "I am a president of a sovereign state and we have long ceased to be a colony. I do not have any master except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Putang ina I will swear at you in that forum," he said, using the Tagalog phrase for son of a b----.
Continue Reading...

Duterte's rant was in response to world criticism of his crackdown on illegal drug dealers.  A crackdown which has resulted in over 2,000 people being executed without trial.  The Philippine president seems to think that the rest of the world, and the US in particular, has no place to question what he does in his own country.  Duterte also brought up the "fact" that there are human rights abuses in the United States.

My question to President Duterte is this: what, exactly, are the "human rights abuses" keeping the United States from criticizing your extrajudicial killings of alleged criminals?  Are our policemen acting as judge, jury, and executioner like yours are?  I'm sure you would bring up Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, et al. as proof of human rights abuses.  I would also point out that nearly all of the high profile shootings protested by the #BlackLivesMatter crowd involve cops being forced to defend themselves against criminals trying to KILL them.  I would urge you to try harder.

This is yet another example of "smart power" in the age of Obama.  Can anyone remember a world leader talking to George Bush in such a manner (Chavez doesn't count)?  He was so crazy even Ghaddafi looked at him and said "oh shit! Here's our chemical weapons, George.  And you know what?  We'll stop trying to get nukes, too."  What about Bill Clinton?  Did any world leaders call him a son of a bitch?  Certainly no one ever talked back to Ronald Reagan.

Obama, however, has proven himself time and again to be a weak, feckless shell of a man.  Obama hikes up his mom jeans, bows to our enemies, and apologizes every chance he gets.  When the going gets tough he jets off to Martha's Vineyard to hide behind Michelle's skirt and play a few rounds of golf.
You know it's bad when your wife's package is bigger than yours...just sayin...
I've said it before and I'll say it again.  No one respects the United States anymore.  Certainly no one fears the United States anymore.  Obama has signaled to every would-be dictator and warlord that we are weak and will turn the other cheek time and again.  Hillary Clinton was the architect of his foreign policy for a good portion of his term.  Things won't be any better under her watch, and will very likely get even worse.

We desperately need to make a change this November.  We can't afford not to.
Let's see Duterte talk back to President Trump...
Update: Duterte Apologizes to Obama

Seems that President Duterte has apologized to Obama for his remarks after Obama cancelled a meeting between the two of them:
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte expressed some regret over his explicit comments about President Barack Obama in a statement Tuesday and said a meeting between the two leaders would be rescheduled for a later date.

The two leaders were supposed to meet Monday before Obama flew to Laos. However, their meeting was canceled after Duterte called Obama a “son of a whore” and warned Obama not to question him over extrajudicial killings. More than 2,000 suspected drug pushers and users have been killed since Duterte launched a war on drugs after taking office on June 30.

 “While the immediate cause was my strong comments to certain press questions that elicited concern and distress, we also regret it came across as a personal attack on the US president. Our primary intention is to chart an independent foreign policy while promoting closer ties with all nations, especially the US with which we had had a longstanding partnership,” Duterte said in a statement.

“We look forward to ironing out differences arising out of national priorities and perceptions, and working in mutually responsible ways for both countries,” he added.
Continue Reading...

My original points still stand.  Imagine any previous president being treated in this manner by a world leader.  You can't.

#BreakingNews: Conservative Icon Phyllis Schlafly Has Died

Trigger Warning:
92 years young...
I hope everyone's having an awesome day off this Labor Day.  Unfortunately I have to interrupt it with some sad news.  Long-time conservative, grassroots activist Phyllis Schlafly has died today at age 92:
Multiple sources are confirming to KMOX news that Phyllis Schlafly, has died.

Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972, a pro-family conservative group focusing heavily on social issues — it has about 80,000 members and, as of this week, Schlafly was still president.

“Phyllis Schlafly spent an astounding 70 years in public service of her fellow Americans,” said the Eagle Forum in a statement. “Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life. She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values. From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values.”
Continue Reading...

Schlafly's Eagle Forum has recently gone through tough times, with the attempted ouster of Phyllis herself after her endorsement of Donald Trump.

Phyllis Schlafly has been a conservative activist for nearly 70 years.  The conservative movement has truly lost one of its cornerstones.  She will be missed.

Happy #LaborDay!

Trigger Warning:
Get to work you lazy bastards!
What's this?  It's Monday, why in the hell isn't everybody working?

Enjoy your day off if you have one.  Lament having to work yet another day if you don't.  I'll be enjoying my day off, but don't fret!  I'll have more stuff for you all tomorrow.

#DonaldInDetroit Full Speeches

Trigger Warning:
Blessing the God-Emperor...
Donald Trump had another YUGE day yesterday, ladies and gentlemen.  After speaking directly to the black community Donald Trump put his money where his mouth is and jetted off to Detroit on Saturday.  

Trump's first stop was a black church where he gave a quick little speech in front of the congregation.  Bishop Wayne T. Jackson was on hand to give The Donald a blessing as well:

Of course no Donald Trump speech is without controversy, and this one was no exception.  This time, though, the controversy came when Reuters cut their live feed as Trump was receiving the bishop's blessing:
 But the news media isn't in the tank for Hillary Clinton or anything.  At least that's what they keep saying.

Later that day Donald Trump laid out his economic plan to revitalize areas like Detroit in front of a crowd of thousands.  Here's the video for the full event.  It's long, but worth watching:

#BreakingNews: Mother Teresa Declared a Saint

Trigger Warning:
A long time coming...
Mother Teresa died in 1997.  Today, after nearly 20 years, Pope Francis finally declared Mother Teresa a saint:
Pope Francis declared Mother Teresa a saint on Sunday, praising the tiny nun for having taken in society's most unwanted and for having shamed world leaders for the "crimes of poverty they themselves created."

Francis held up Mother Teresa as the model for a Catholic Church that goes to the peripheries to find poor, wounded souls during a canonization Mass that drew an estimated 120,000 people -- rich and poor, powerful and homeless -- to a sun-filled St. Peter's Square.

"Let us carry her smile in our hearts and give it to those whom we meet along our journey, especially those who suffer," Francis said in his homily.

The canonization was the highlight of Francis' Holy Year of Mercy and may come to define his papacy, which has been dedicated to ministering to society's most marginal, from prisoners to prostitutes, the refugees and the homeless.

Applause erupted in St. Peter's Square even before Francis finished pronouncing the rite of canonization, evidence of the admiration Mother Teresa enjoyed from Christians and non-Christians alike during her life and after her 1997 death.

At the Mother House of the Missionaries of Charity group that she founded in Kolkata, hundreds of people watching the Mass on TV clapped with joy when Francis declared her a saint. They gathered around Mother's tomb which was decorated with flowers, a single candle and a photo of the tiny wrinkled saint.

 Mother Teresa upheld Christianity's highest ideals, and definitely practiced what she preached.  Her sainthood is an honor that's been a long time coming, and is well-deserved.

Jared Fogle is a Bastard

Trigger Warning:
Pictured: Grade A son of a bitch...
We all knew that Jared Fogle was a complete and utter son of a bitch.  What we didn't realize was just how much of an asshole he truly is.  Jared Fogle is such a douchebag that he's suing the parents of one of his victims, saying it's THEIR fault he molested her:
Jared Fogle, the disgraced Subway pitchman who was convicted of a string of child sex offenses, is suing one of his victim's parents, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Fogle, currently detained at a federal prison in Colorado, has lodged court documents blaming the girl's parents for a cycle of despair, self-harm and drink and drug abuse which she says was the result of his abuse.

In court documents obtained by DailyMail, Fogle claims that her parents, named only as B.T. and J.T. are responsible for what happened to her - and not him.
The girl, Jane Doe, lodged a compensation claim against millionaire Fogle earlier this year.

In court papers she told how she learned that Fogle's business partner, Russell Taylor, had filmed her with secret cameras bathing and undressing at his house, to which she was a regular visitor between March 2011 and January 2015.

Fogle, she said, had solicited the videos from Taylor, and she was one of the series of minors Taylor captured on camera for her perverted business partner's illegal pleasure.

Fogle initially defended the case by saying the girl, whose age has not been disclosed but who was a minor when she was filmed, had received $100,000 in compensation as part of the plea deal which resulted in him being jailed.

But now he has delivered a fresh set of papers to federal court in Indianapolis - with an extraordinary series of allegations leveled at her parents.

It's such a shame that this shameful excuse for a human being hasn't experienced some prison justice yet.  Of course he's going to be in jail for a LONG time...

Your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Could KILL You!

Trigger Warning:
Kind of like that...
All right it's not very likely that brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 you bought will kill you.  There IS a chance the battery could explode, however.  In fact the chance is so high that Samsung has temporarily suspended all sales of the cell phone:
Samsung halted sales of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone Friday after finding batteries of some of the devices exploded while they were charged.

Koh Dong-jin, president of Samsung’s mobile business, said customers who already bought Note 7s will be able to swap them for new smartphones, regardless of when they purchased them. Note 7 sales launched just two weeks ago.

Samsung issued its first global recall of the flagship smartphone because it has not found ways to specify exactly which phones may endanger the user. The smartphones are being yanked from shelves in 10 countries, including the U.S. and South Korea.

Koh said the company's investigation found that a battery cell made by one of its two battery suppliers caused the phone to catch fire. He refused to name the battery supplier.

Koh described it as a "tiny manufacturing problem."  Just a tiny little problem that could cause your phone to burst into flames at any moment!  So far no injuries have been reported.  So far...
Just look at that ticking time bomb...
 

One Million SSNs are Stolen, IRS Doesn't Tell Anyone

Trigger Warning:
I mean seriously...
It seems that the IRS has recently discovered that illegal immigrants have stolen over one million social security numbers.  And by recently I mean they learned this almost five years ago:
The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.

Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled, and fell woefully short anyway.

As a result most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.

“Taxpayers identified as victims of employment-related identity theft are not notified,” the inspector general said.

Victims’ numbers are stolen by illegal immigrants who need to give employers a valid Social Security number in order to get a job. Employers are prohibited from probing too deeply into numbers, even when they suspect fraud.

 "Radius surely the IRS told these people their social security numbers were stolen.  It's not like they wouldn't try to fix this huge mess."

Why yes, yes they did tell people.  They told about 25,000 people their social security numbers were stolen.  In 2014.  Under a pilot program.  Don't worry, though.  The IRS is going to TRY and tell everyone their numbers were stolen.

Next year...

Maybe...
