Clinton Cash…..And The Right Rejoices

The Right has had it in for the Clintons since the days of Newt’s witch hunts of the ’90’s…….and now that Hillary has painted a bigger target on her back by announcing that she will seek the Dem nomination the Right has been looking for that “big” story that will put her in her place.

Now they think they have it!  Some dude writes a book about the foreign cash coming into the Clinton Global Initiative and Hillary;s campaign…..The guy has been all over FOX News ranting and raving and being idolized by the Right for his revelations…..

But there is a bit of a problem………..Media Matters has looked into the veiled claims by the author……..

Clinton Cash will be released on May 5, and mediareports have already hyped the book’s supposed revelations about connections between Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, donations to the Clinton Foundation, and paid speeches given by the Clintons.

Schweizer makes clear that he does not intend to present a smoking gun, despite the media speculation. The book relies heavily on timing, stitching together the dates of donations to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton’s speaking fees with actions by the State Department.

Schweizer explains he cannot prove the allegations, leaving that up to investigative journalists and possibly law enforcement. “Short of someone involved coming forward to give sworn testimony, we don’t know what might or might not have been said in private conversations, the exact nature of the transition, or why people in power make the decision they do,” he writes.  Later, he concludes, “We cannot ultimately know what goes on in their minds and ultimately provide the links between the money they took and the benefits that subsequently accrued to themselves, their friends, and their associates.”

ThinkProgress details several of Schweizer’s claims, and highlights one major error already found in the book. According to the site, Schweizer at one point uses a press release to bolster one of his many speculative claims, citing it to suggest there may have been a link between a private company that was paying Bill Clinton for speeches (and which supposedly issued the press release) and a State Department report released when Hillary Clinton was secretary. However, ThinkProgress notes, the press release Schweizer cites was revealed as a hoax back in 2013.

This apparently sloppy sourcing from Schweizer is nothing new. As Media Matters extensively documented, Schweizer’s career as a Republican activist and researcher is riddled with errors, retractions, and investigations that find his facts “do not check out” and his sources “do not exist.” Our analysis found at least 10 separate incidents in which journalists called out Schweizer for his botched reporting.

In other words….this guy has written a book that is packed with innuendos and misinformation……but what would you expect from a guy that FOX think is a god among men?

We know that FOX has NEVER let the truth get in the way of a good story.

You can expect these types of made-up reports…..after all it is the ‘theater of the absurd’…..2016 edition.

(Sen.) Cotton Picking Moron (Again)

Okay I said in the past that I would lay off writing about Arkansas favorite Son, Sen. Tom Cotton, but I lied…..not because I wanted to but rather because this mental midget will not shut up…..he makes it so easy to mock him!

He started by trying to look like a big boy and writing a letter to Iran’s leaders about what would happen if a deal was found for their nuke production….and it was signed by a list of other mental midgets that thought it would be a good idea.  Proving once again that the people that hold the Constitution up as a prop at their campaign events still have NO idea what it says beyond the 1st and 2nd amendment…….

After he made his first faux pas he could sit down and be silent….Nope, he had to rattle on again……he then had to worry that any deal would jeopardize any negotiations with Israel……what negotiations?  Israel has NEVER negotiated in good faith why would they now……

And now Cotton is worried that Iran will have a bomb if the deals is linked……

The Obama administration’s work on a nuclear deal with Iran could lead to a nuclear war, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said in an interview published on Monday.

“If we agreed to the kind of proposal the Obama administration has made, then military confrontation may be further off, but it might also be nuclear,” he said in an interview with The Atlantic.

“Twenty years, 10 years, 12 years, who knows? The proposal puts Iran on the path to being a nuclear-arms state, and I think once Iran becomes a nuclear-arms state, this will lead inevitably to some kind of military confrontation,” he said. “It may not be initially with the United States, but I think that’s virtually inevitable.”

He also noted that one option to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons was to conduct military strikes against the country now.

These asshats just tickle the crap out of me for they are morons and they do not know it….they just keep talking…….think about what this yutz had to say……with a deal Iran would have the bomb soon and we would have a war…..to stop that from happening we need to bomb Iran’s facilities now…….

So his big plan is to save a war later we need to go to war now……..

Now do you see how outta touch these shitheads really are?  Not yet?  Then read this………

Everything you need to know about ‘Tehran Tom’ is in one paragraph of an interview he gave Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic this week.

Goldberg: Why do you think your general outlook is so disparaged, even in parts of the Republican Party? I don’t mean the Rand Paul wing, even. I mean, I hear from Republicans who are wary of going down a path that would lead to another Middle East war. Or let me put this another way: Do you believe that the country is tired of these sorts of wars and of this kind of engagement?

Cotton: I think that Americans—and this is not true just now, but over the years—are not fundamentally opposed to war. They’re fundamentally opposed to losing wars. And that’s one reason why President Bush lost support for the Iraq War in the period of 2004 to 2006.

Cotton is digging a hole he will not be able to climb out of……he will always be the moron on on the Right with ZERO foreign policy chops……..

I would like very much to ignore this twat….but as long as he speaks in dangerous language I feel I must spout off…….I have one piece of advice for him…..”A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste”……….

Okay I have been extremely mean to Cotton and my daughter says I should try to say something nice…….so I decided to send him a card……..

Here the deal….if he will shut up so shall I!

You Cannot Fix Stupid!

(A copy of this post has been sent to this person’s office and offer to dispute my assertions which will be printed here if any are received)……..

You Gotta Love Those E-Mails

GOD I love the lunacy of political rhetoric……

There has been a real silly debate going on within the pundit class…….e-mails……the first shot was fired by Jeb who released a ton of e-mails to his office at the time he was serving as governor…..fortunately many of those released carried with them people’s personal info lie home address, SSN, etc….and of course the media was all over this faux pas by Jeb’s staff….the story was good for about a week maybe a little more….

The next round when Hillary and her use of a private e-mail account as her time serving as the sec. of State….and the media was once again given something of a red meat issue that they could work…….and the Right wing media has not stopped chewing on that bone yet…..

As expected there have been many opponents to criticize Clinton for her action…..almost all the wannabes in the GOP for the nomination to include Cruz, Paul, Perry (who probably cannot spell e-mail) and of course Louisiana’s governor, Jindal,…..you remember him…..that frumpy little dude that gave the GOP response of the SOTU speech back in the day.

And speaking of Jindal……..

Bobby Jindal has dinged Hillary Clinton over her use of private email while in office, but he appears less than eager to release his own work-related correspondence, the Advocate reports. When the newspaper asked for access to the emails, the Louisiana governor’s team said that the documents were protected by exemptions in public records rules. “Aside from the obvious reason for excluding security information, these content-based exemptions support the environment of open discussion and full analysis necessary for staff to make recommendations to assist the governor in the usual course of the duties and business of his office,” wrote Jindal’s top lawyer.

The AP, which also sought emails from Jindal’s office, got a similar response from lawyer Thomas Enright. “Aside from email communications with internal staff and emails with family, friends, and personal business, Governor Jindal discusses, debates, and resolves issues relating to official duties either face-to-face or on the telephone,” he said. Jindal, who called for a transparent government in his first gubernatorial campaign, supported a law that included protecting communications tied to the “deliberative process.” Fair enough, a transparency advocate tells the Advocate: “What is out of line is how (the law has) been interpreted.” Proposed legislation could, however, rid the law of the exemptions.

This is a great illustration of just how stupid the political system has become……then there is the part that is so sad……the part where they seem to have NO idea of their hypocrisy…..

You know it is almost too disgusting to make fun of these d/bags…..you did notice that I said….”ALMOST”?

When D/Bags Talk It Is Too Good To Ignore

Ever read an article that was too good to pass up or to try and ignore?

All the Right Wing clap-trap about same sex marriage has gone over the top many times……but the best one I read yesterday and just had to pass it on………..

Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera appeared on recent episode of “America’s Survival,” where he and co-host Jerry Kenney made their case against homosexuality by likening it to rape, eating feces, eating children, murder, incest, and drinking poison.

After Kenney boldly declared that “I don’t believe in gay people” on the grounds that nobody can prove to him “scientifically” that there is any genetic cause of homosexuality, he asserted that claiming that gay people are just “born that way” is like saying that a rapist ought to be free to rape because he was “just born a rapist.”

Kenney then went on to say that there is nothing “natural” about homosexuality because whenever it occurs in nature “it doesn’t occur for very long.” This led him to assert that homosexuality can’t be genetic because, if it was, “it [would] have died with the very first person that had the gene mutation.”

Even if one does accept the claim that homosexuality is natural, Kenney continued, that still doesn’t justify it because “there are a lot of things that are natural that aren’t necessarily good.”

“In nature, animals rape one another,” he said. “So should rape be okay? Some animals eat their own waste, is that okay? Animals eat their young. Is our new standard now, in this society that we’ve brought down and as long as we’re at the animal level then it’s okay?”

“Wouldn’t murder be natural?” asked LaBarbera. “Wouldn’t incest be natural?”

“Poison is natural,” responded Kenney. “Let’s all drink a cup of poison”:

Do these people ever listen to what they say…..or maybe listen to that small voice in their head that tells them to just keep quiet?

Fools And Their Idiotic Thoughts

Sen Cotton of Arkansas made history by his unthoughtful attempt at foreign policy….I am talking about his letter to Iran….but that is not the only place that he opened his mouth and inserted at least one foot…….the more he talks the more he shows his ignorance…..”Can’t Fix Stupid”!

New Term: (Sen.) Cotton Mouth

I wish I could just move on from this Babbling Buffoon…..but he will not shut up so I can move on!  Sen. Cotton may receive my “Crack’d Pot Award”……..

Sen. Cotton from Arkansas….that low level senator that has walked into DC with his mouth open and has not shut it yet.  We all know about his “infamous” letter to Iran trying to crap on the nuke negotiations the admin is in the middle of…..and then he went off with his expansionism bullsh*t in his speech to the Senate…..and that is where most of the news was reported…..he was chest thumping like ALL GOP senators over the military…..but while he was making his first speech he said something that made me……. FREAK!

The Obama admin said that they would re=assess our policies with Israel for some of the statements that BiBi made trying to sway the elections……but Cotton;s reaction to this news was hilarious………

Cotton, the right-wing freshman in his second month in the Senate, called Psaki’s comments “worrisome“ – for a very specific reason.
“While Prime Minister Netanyahu won a decisive victory, he still has just started assembling a governing majority coalition. These kinds of quotes from Israel’s most important ally could very well startle some of the smaller parties and their leaders with whom Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently in negotiations.
“This raises the question, of course, if the administration intends to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu’s efforts to assemble a coalition by suggesting a change to our longstanding policy of supporting Israel’s position with the United Nations.”
Think about the quote…..he is worried that the statements from the State department could effect delicate negotiations for Israel…….does this moron really NOT see what he is saying?
But wait there is more!  On Face The Nation Cotton made the comment that ” Iran was starting to control the region……my God they already control Tehran”…….apparently he does not know that Tehran is the capital of………Wait for it……… Iran!
Not only does this mental midget not know the Constitution but he has NO idea about geography either………with this much idiocy what makes him capable of governing?
The GOP has done this to itself…….it has created a generation of morons……I kinda like the quote……”All that self-expression has just created a generation of morons, hooked on an endless appetite for rubbish.
Need I say more?
