Cha-ching: Cough up another $2.85m to fuel Obama’s 3-day fundraising trip
President Obama, grappling with two major international crises and a new federal court decision that threatens to dismantle Obamacare, hit the road for a three-day West Coast fundraising trip that will cost nearly $3 million just to fly Air Force One.
At $228,288 an hour, the base flight time of 12.5 hours from Washington to Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and back to Andrews Air Force Base will cost taxpayers $2.85 million.
Expensive? That bill doesn’t include the cost of flying and housing staff and the Secret Service, or the prepositioning of equipment like limos to get the president from his hotel to events.
This just keeps getting better and better. Now it turns out that members of Ansar al-Sharia moved in NEXT DOOR to the Benghazi consulate just months before it was attacked on September 11, 2012 and NOTHING was done about it by the State Department.

WASHINGTON (WNB) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (RTRD-CA) is demanding that illegal immigrant children flooding into the country be treated the same as the refugee baby Jesus.
The noted Biblical scholar and abortion advocate told an interviewer on MSNBC‘s Morning Joe Tuesday, “As I visited these dear children I was moved by the fact many of them looked so much like the little baby Jesus – at least the boys and not a few of the girls. I want to make sure they are treated no differently than the refugee baby Jesus was.”
The first time Nigel Sykes tried to get money from the Seasons Pizza in Newport, he did it with a gun, forcing his way into the business through the back door.
This time, Sykes is trying to get money from the pizzeria by suing the employees who tackled him and wrestled his gun away during the robbery.
Sykes alleges assault in a federal civil complaint claiming the rough treatment was “unnecessary” and that as a result of the injuries he suffered during his attempted hold-up, he is due over $260,000.
Here’s an Everything is Terrible video. Enjoy it as much as you did the Hillary video.
A senior member of the U.S. Department of State tweeted his support for Hamas on Sunday, but after a barrage of complaints he soon deleted the tweet and apologized for his unwise action, saying it was just a “mistake” and that he accidentally tweeted the “wrong hashtag.”

Want to guess what we’ll be using for starting the fireplace this winter?
It’s from Small Dead Animals. They are highlighting acts that perform in Israel.-
In tonight’s installment of Artists Who Perform in Israel Week, it’s a Manhattan Transfer two-fer: First, a charmingly schmaltzy vintage TV performance of Chanson D’Amour, then a more recent performance, a vocalized version ofCorner Pocket (a Count Basie Orchestra song written by Basie’s guitarist Freddie Green) called Until I Met You.
I guess it would require a little research, but it’s a great idea, one that I wouldn’t mind stealing. If you guys submit the stuff (just like the soothiness) we’ll always hat tip our Canadian pals, Small Dead Animals, who thought of it.
The Auschwitz Selfie is not recommended.

“…The traditional emphasis on America’s founders and the principles of constitutional government will soon be jettisoned in favor of a left-leaning emphasis on race, gender, class, ethnicity, etc…
The new AP U.S. History Exam has been issued under the authority of David Coleman, president of the College Board and, not coincidentally, architect of the Common Core. We are witnessing a coordinated, two-pronged effort to effectively federalize all of American K-12 education, while shifting its content sharply to the left…” [NRO]
The plan is to sever coming generations from their historical roots, and eradicate any possibility of emulation.
In this case, “those who do not study history” will be doomed to slavery.
30,000 residents of Yumen are not being allowed to leave and 151 people have been placed in quarantine after man’s death
A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague, state media said.
Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst (R) reported that the vast majority of illegal immigrants coming over the southern border are not unaccompanied minors in an appearance on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.”
“Our effort in Texas is not focused on the unaccompanied children…we are focused on-
the unaccompanied children represent some 12%-20%.
SARAH PALIN DRIVES STAKE THROUGH HEART OF ‘TRUE BLOOD’ PRODUCERS.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood‘s producers for a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday’s HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, ”Oh my God, I’m a Republi-c*nt.”
Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, ”‘True Blood’ or true gall?”
Israel’s Operation Protective Edge began two weeks ago and thanks to Western leaders and the mainstream media misrepresenting facts and twisting the meaning of certain words have perverted the story. So in order to help you understand what is being presented by our leaders and reported by our mainstream media The Lid presents the Middle East NewSpeak glossary below:
Civilian Casualties: Usually preceded by the word “but” as in “President Obama says Israel has every right to defend herself from terrorists but…he is concerned about Civilian Casualties. Whenever one speaks about the tragic deaths of Palestinian civilians, no discussion of Hamas using human shields is allowed. Note: civilian casualties are not as big of a problem when a US Drone kills civilians in Pakistan.

What is Clinton trying to tell us?
Hillary Clinton, an elderly homeowner and blood clot survivor who many believe is the best candidate to challenge Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has taken part in numerous interviews since leaving the Obama administration and promoting the release of her underwhelming memoir, Hard Choices.
They create ridiculously fake propaganda.
This video is horseshit. Teddy Kennedy’s neck brace was more convincing.

This is a quick frame grab after the “shot.” We see some Muslim woman sitting with her hands out as if she’s just witnessed a tragedy. It’s like Talia Shire level acting. The camera pans over for a second and, looky there, we see the guy in the green shirt standing up, just fine.
These people are too stupid to cobble together a believable video.
That the Guardian and The Daily Mail, and all the other shitstream media outlets, are running this video is preposterously anti-Israel.
Go back and look for yourself.
