    I told Eleanor that “Cloud” computing was NOT stored in Heaven, but rather, down here at the NSA and the IRS.

    If it’s true, Franklin, then systems like Carbonite® may be subject to -inspection- by America’s corrupt government, too. 😮

    Yes, Babs, the Feds have a ‘backdoor’ to ALL data servers.
    Of course, that word has a whole other meaning to the boy in the White House.

    What Difference Does It Make to Hillary?

    When then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified before Congress in January on the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi and flippantly remarked, “What difference does it make?” (full context: “Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans–what difference, at this point, does it make?”) she betrayed an astounding insensitivity toward the deaths of the four brave Americans who needlessly died on September 11th, 2012.
    Furthermore, Clinton betrayed an incredible ignorance of her duties and responsibilities as America’s chief foreign minister by ignoring the fact our ambassador to Libya died that night and she had done nothing about it at the time or afterward.

    The statement alone should have ruled out her long-cherished ambition to become the first woman president of the United States and, if it didn’t, as the Republican House of Representatives dig further into who knew what and when they knew it last September, and who did what and who didn’t, and who gave orders and what they were, it’s all but certain Mrs. Clinton will remain a private citizen until the day she dies. . .

    Except that this is Hillary Rodham Clinton we’re talking about and what difference does any of that make to Hillary?

    Reputedly named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first Westerner to reach the summit of Mount Everest–yet born six years before he accomplished that feat–America’s Hillary is beyond amazing.

    After all, she surmounted the Gennifer Flowers scandal and her Tammy Wynette slur, she overcame her reputation as “The Lady Macbeth of Little Rock,” she dodged salacious rumors following Vince Foster’s suicide, she beat the stench of Whitewater, Jim McDougal and Madison Guaranty, she survived the debacles of Hillarycare and Travelgate, she avoided complicitity in the mysterious appearance of Rose Law Firm billing records in the White House, she withstood criticism of her seances with Eleanor Roosevelt, she stood by her man after Monica Lewinsky knelt before him–and she even survived the ridicule over her bizarre hair-dos.

    What difference does anything make to Hillary?

    According to to Ed Klein in The Amateur, Hillary’s hubby felt “Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s an amateur!” As true as that may be, Bill Clinton apparently cut a deal with Barry, a tit for tat . . . (Read More at

    Well, here we go again;
    Well, the London Times article I was going to post went code 404.
    Apparently the Zero is now preparing US Troops to help Al Queda take Syria in yet another one of his genuinely illegal wars (as compared to the Shrub at least maintaining a fiction of constitutional governance by getting congressional approval.)
    This has become perfectly clear at this point; Hussein is genuinely in bed with and assisting Al’Queda terrorists to take over the middle east (not to mention the US itself.)
    There is a Terrorist in the White House.
    Can there be any other Possible explanation?
    Arming terrorists with our taxes while trying to disarm us and open our borders to a flood of third world colonization?

    Remember the naked moonbat subway dancer?

    SF Weekly reports that the man, identified as 24-year-old Yeiner Perez, was handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after being arrested following a May 10th incident inside the 16th and Mission BART Station. Video from the minutes leading up to the arrest show a nude man doing flips and handstands on fare gates at the station and then harassing several passengers and employees.


  7. Bob Roberts says:

    You know, I can’t believe they’re going to run Jeb Bush. I mean, if two Bush family members had not already run, fine. But given the response to GW, the successful media smear campaigns, running Jeb is lunacy.

  8. Bob Roberts says:

    Or is it?

  9. True Blue says:

    “Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans–what difference, at this point, does it make”

    That building was not the US Embassy. The Ambassador was not generally in residence there.

    So, Hillary; if it was just a protest; or just some homicidal terrorists You helped empower; How did they know the Ambassador was there, and why did they target That building and no others; while at the same time in Egypt our embassy Cairo was also besieged -yet the one in Tripoli Libya wasn’t? Where were the embassy Marines?
    Was the Ambassador there to conduct a (wink wink) illegal sale of arms to Al’Queda for use in Syria; or did your administration slip the word to your Muslim Brotherhood terrorist buddies and give them the Ambassador as an appeasement gift?
    Remember that when Hillary visits Australia, security precautions are MORE than when the British crown prince Himself visits -so where was that kind of security consciousness in Benghazi?

  10. True Blue says:

    Sorry to chew up your bandwidth but…
    “Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans–what difference, at this point, does it make”
    is the Official Position of the United States Government; then All “Hate Crime” Laws Must be overturned because you deny that motive makes any difference.
    The defense rests.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a *loser*!

    The PLP (Professional Loser Party, aka the GOP) has decided that Jeb Bush will be their nominee for 2016! There is nobody more likely to lose than Jeb, therefore, he’s the perfect PLP candidate!

    It’s time for us to select and then fully back a third party candidate, starting NOW. The GOP has proven that they’re just a bunch of traitors who should be thrown onto the garbage pile of history.

  12. Gunny G says:

    NO more inherited scumbags. Period. The presidency IS NOT A F**KING birthright.

    If the GOP is stupid enough to run a RINO like Jeb, I’ll sit it out.

    @Gunny G

    I was saying that when Prince George ran against Prince Al. Next we had Hanoi Heinz vs. King George, then in 2008 we were treated to Bill Ayers protegé Hussein vs. the oldest man on the GOP waiting list.

    Compared to all that, Mitt Romney was a breath of fresh air. The only one amongst all of these who actually made his money on his own before he entered politics.

    It does look a lot as if it will be the boy jeb vs. Hitlery in 2016, which should be completely unacceptable for all Americans, but sadly Hitlery has her RAT cheering section and the rest of us have really flat noses by now from holding them so hard every four years.

    Instead of sitting it out, let’s see if a Third Party reflecting American Values joins the fray.

    If the boy jeb IS indeed the nominee I am out as well.


  16. Ummah Gummah says:


    As a service to my fellow Countermoonbats I am making everyone aware of a very succinctly written piece on American Thinker, called The Two Faces of Islam

    I am aware that most you you know everything you need to know about islam and the threat it represents.

    The author, Paul Austin Murphy, sums it all up so well in a relatively short piece. Well worth passing on to friends and family who are beginning to question the liberal Obamastream narrative pushed by the liberal media.

    This is not addressed at taLIBerals because I consider them, like Zombies, a lost cause.

    Catholic Bishops Who Promote National Suicide

    HENRY McCULLOCH writes:

    Christopher Manion’s 2011 Crisis magazine article, “The Catholic Bishops and Immigration Reform” is an indictment of the malfeasance of the “American” (italics entirely intentional) Catholic Bishops concerning immigration and the United States’ borders that is timelier than ever. I highly recommend it as the execrable Charles Schumer, boy-idiot Marco Rubio, man-lunatic John McCain and light-in-the-loafers Lindsey Graham conspire with Barack Hussein Obama, the Democratic Party and the Republican establishment – bought by such as Sheldon Adelson and Mark Zuckerberg — to destroy the United States through their illegal-alien-amnestying, “guest”-worker-increasing, legal-and-illegal-immigration-increasing, immigration enforcement-gutting S. 744 bill.

    With the exception of Willard, I haven’t voted for the Republican presidential candidate since GHW Bush. If Jebbie is the candidate in 2016 (which is highly unlikely) I will continue vote for someone — ANYONE — outside the two-party duopoly.

    Four years of GHW Bush was enough to teach me the GOP is absolutely useless in combating the progressive agenda. In fact it can be credibly argued the GOP’s track record wrt progressive issues rivals — or even surpasses — that of the DemRATs.

    At the end of the day, the badazz conservative rhetoric mouthed by the Goopers amounts to just that: words, i.e., empty rhetoric.

    Bottom Line, As it stands now, especially now, >60% of the Republican pols are compromised.

    To understand why many Republicans behave as they do (e.g. governing against the will of their conservative base), in most cases you need look no further than the interests (or agenda) of their biggest donors.

    Has anyone noticed how moonbats have this narcissistic habit of blaming everything on anything but what (or who) is really responsible?

    Continuing the trend, did you know, according to moonbats at least, menopause is caused by men!

    This is the same sort of junk science that claims homosexuality is caused by ‘epigenetics’ and climate change is primarily driven by humans. And they used the same method, since they couldn’t find any actual real world data:

    “That’s an assumption that they made when they started their computer model, that men do like younger mates, and I don’t think you can make that assumption,” says Dr. Lebovitz. “Computer studies are difficult. Certainly population based studies can have more validity.”

    “Ineligible to run for a third term…” – until he gets control of both houses of Congress and passes a Constitutional Amendment to allow more terms either directly or by repealing the 22nd, which a direct change would basically do.

    “Jihawg” ammunition. “Jihawg ammunition is Haraam or unclean to the Jihadist.

    Some in even the firearms community find such ammo offensive. writes:

    “Apart from this pork-paint being absolutely useless, it also raises legal questions. If you defend yourself with a pistol, the last thing you need or want is a prosecutor holding up a pork covered bullet in court and telling the jury that the person shot was a Muslim…

    If you want to defend yourself, buy the most effective ammunition possible. Don’t buy crap covered in pork. As a community, we are better than this.”

    I love the idea of politically incorrect ammo.

    Gunny, Ummah, et al: for Pete’s sake, don’t sit this out if the GOP nominates Jeb Bush! Take action and join me in promoting a third party candidate!

    The Pro Loser Party (GOP) keeps nominating impotent candidates because that’s what they’re paid to do. They’re in on the scamming of America ( By sitting out, all you’re doing is helping it continue.

    We need a strong Replacement Second Party candidate who is willing to take Hitlery, Hussein, the liberals, Juan McCain, and all the GOP traitors out to the woodshed and spank them hard.

    So far Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have my vote: Both of them have been slicing and dicing Hussein and all of his stupid policies. That’s leadership material. And if you’re worried about what the LameStream Media might do or say, we have three years to hoax the hell out of them until they have no credibility at all.

    So take heart and take action! When the wolves are at your door, you don’t cower in a corner and hope they don’t hurt you too badly. You pick up your shotgun and make them sorry they ever came your way. And that’s what’s got to happen with both the Democrats and the GOP. It’s time for We the People to rise up and take back the country.

    And quite frankly….I’m looking forward to the fight.

    Obama’s African Sojourn

    The bad news about President Barack Hussein Obama’s upcoming trip to Africa: In this age of sequester belt-tightening replete with lay-offs of essential federal government personnel and cutbacks in such popular activities as White House tours, his week-long, three-nation trip will cost American taxpayers upwards of $100,000,000, enough money to have funded 1,350 weeks of those tours.
    The good news is that we are saving a small bundle since the planned, 2-hour safari scheduled for the POTUS and the FLOTUS through the hinterlands of Tanzania has been scrubbed.

    According to the U.K.’s The Telegraph, the safari “would have required the president’s special counter-assault team to carry sniper rifles with high-calibre rounds that could neutralise cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat,” citing a leaked Secret Service document. Instead, the Obamas will visit Robben Island in South Africa, where Nelson Mandela had been held prisoner for 18 years.

    It’s nice to see the austerity-minded Secret Service has at least one eye focused on the nation’s wallet.

    As it is, this African jaunt to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania will be the most expensive foreign excursion of Mr. Obama’s tenure, if not the most expensive trip in the history of American presidents.

    It will involve military cargo planes airlifting 56 vehicles including 14 parade limousines, ambulances equipped for chemical and biological attacks, radio-jamming vehicles, an aircraft carrier . . . (Read more at

    If Obama had a son he wouldn’t just look like this guy – HE WOULD BE THIS GUY!

    Authorities in New York state said a man was holding his 8-month-old daughter when he was arrested for selling heroin. “The child was content, the child is being held by the father and he’s approaching the buyer to complete the narcotics transaction with the child in his arms,” Suffolk County police Lt. James Rooney said. “To him, it looked like the usual course of business, the way the officers observed him.”

  36. Bob Roberts says:

    The case of Larry King (not CNN’s Larry King, this was a young kid) is interesting. Promoted as yet more proof of hate crimes against gays, it turns out the caseof Lawrence “Larry” King is one of a gay person committing hate crimes against straight kids! One in particular – Brandon McInerney, was the subject of repeated taunts, bullying and harassment to the point where, eventually, he snapped at all the unwanted sexual advances, actively encouraged by militant lesbian vice principal Joy Epstein.

    In short, Larry was a pawn, set up to be a martyr to the cause of LGBTQ activism. Deliberately placed in harms way, encouraged to act out in ways that would cause problems and ultimately lead to violence, the plan worked and the cause got it’s martyr.

    Consider this: What if King had been a straight boy and Brandon a straight girl suffering repeated unwanted sexual advances from the bully King? How would the media play the story then?

    I see what you did there. Funny.

    Here’s an update from your “6 dead, 26 wounded” citation:

    Seven people were killed and at least 30 others were shot in violence that plagued Chicago over Father’s Day weekend – and remember, the weekend isn’t over!

    Next, the liberal sewer that is New York.

    Five people shot in the Bronx, Staten Island and Queens over 21-minute span
    One of the victims was a 14-year-old boy who was shot in the chest at Mahoney Playground on Staten Island.

    Seeing as Obamacare assures you will go broke trying to pay back your student loans needed to become one, is this surprising?


    A Kansas physician says he makes the same income and offers better quality care to his patients after he dumped all health insurance companies.

    Makes sense – cut out the middle man, ESPECIALLY THE GOVERNMENT MIDDLE MAN, and deliver better, cheaper, more effective, efficient care.

    Erin Brockovich ‘apologizes’ by claiming she did no wrong.

    The environmental activist released a public apology yesterday for her actions, saying “there was no public safety risk,” because she was not operating the boat while drunk in open waters.

    Yeah, since they only caught her once she got to the dock she’s denying that she was presenting a grave safety risk while out driving around in open public waters:

    According to a spokesperson from the Nevada Department of Wildlife, Brockovich-Ellis was arrested after the game warden observed that she was struggling to dock her boat and attempted to assist her when he noticed that she exhibited several signs showing that she was an intoxicated boater.

    Moonbats aren’t convincing liars either.
