The Only Known Photograph of Winston Churchill and Barack Obama

The Rules According to Clinton:


"Hillary Clinton hasn't even begun her expected presidential candidacy, but already Americans are being reminded of the political entertainment they can expect. To wit, the normal rules of government ethics and transparency apply to everyone except Bill and Hillary. ...
 The real story here is that none of this is a surprise. This is how the Clintons roll. They're a political version of the old Peanuts cartoon character who was always surrounded by a cloud of dirt. Ethical shortcuts and controversies are standard operating procedure. A brief 1990s roll call: The Riadys, Johnny Chung, Travelgate, the vanishing Rose billing records, a killing in cattle futures, the Marc Rich pardon.
 The Clintons and Democrats want Americans to forget all of that. But as the email and foundation discoveries show, the Clintons haven't changed. They still think they can do what they please and get away with it." — The Editors, The Wall Street Journal

Clinton Private Server Listed Under Mysterious,
Untraceable Name


The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family’s home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.
The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives. 
It remains unclear exactly who set up and maintained the private email server for Clinton, but the AP traced it back to Eric Hoteham – a mysterious identity that “does not appear in public records databases, campaign contribution records or Internet background searches.”  However, Hoteham’s name is listed as a customer at the Clinton’s $1.7 million estate on Old House Lane in Chappaqua. The records have been registered for the Internet address for her email server since August 2010 and Hoteham is also listed as someone associated with the website “presidentclinton.com” and a defunct address for “wjcoffice.com.”
Operating her own server would have afforded Clinton additional legal opportunities to block government or private subpoenas in criminal, administrative or civil cases because her lawyers could object in court before being forced to turn over any emails.

Negotiations with Iran

"Barack Obama wants us all to simmer down about Iran. He wants Senator Bob Menendez, a fellow Democrat, and the donors he represents to butt out of the sanctions debate. He wants Republicans to quit crying wolf about Iran's nuclear weapons program. He wants the media to stop hyping terror threats. He wants the American people in the dark about the secret correspondence he's had for years with Iran's supreme leader. He wants John Boehner to be mindful of protocol. And most of all, he wants Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop questioning his accommodationist approach to Tehran.
"With the breezy confidence that is his trademark, the president has repeatedly delivered a reassuring message on Iran to the country and the world: Trust me.
"With respect, Mr. President: No." — Stephen F. Hayes, The Weekly Standard

Google To Be Our New Purveyor Of The Truth


No one will dispute the interwebs are stuffed full with non-sense, mis-information and propaganda from every direction. Until now it was up to us to use our common sense to decide what we believe, or choose not to believe. But Internet giant Google, who's data bases most search engines access for searches will soon be our new truth squad, keeping us safe from lies and deceit. They have devised a fix..... 

From NewScientist
Google's search engine currently uses the number of incoming links to a web page as a proxy for quality, determining where it appears in search results. So pages that many other sites link to are ranked higher. This system has brought us the search engine as we know it today, but the downside is that websites full of misinformation can rise up the rankings, if enough people link to them.
A Google research team is adapting that model to measure the trustworthiness of a page, rather than its reputation across the web. Instead of counting incoming links, the system – which is not yet live – counts the number of incorrect facts within a page. "A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy," says the team (arxiv.org/abs/1502.03519v1). The score they compute for each page is its Knowledge-Based Trust score.
The software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet.
Wait...wait..do they mean the same Internet full of false and misleading information....
There are already lots of apps that try to help internet users unearth the truth. Emergent, a project from the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, New York, pulls in rumours from trashy sites, then verifies or rebuts them by cross-referencing to other sources.
LazyTruth developer Matt Stempeck, now the director of civic media at Microsoft New York, wants to develop software that exports the knowledge found in fact-checking services such as Snopes, PolitiFact and FactCheck.org so that everyone has easy access to them. He says tools like LazyTruth are useful online, but challenging the erroneous beliefs underpinning that information is harder. "How do you correct people's misconceptions? People get very defensive," Stempeck says. "If they're searching for the answer on Google they might be in a much more receptive state."
That should make you feel better.  You will soon have "Guardians of Truth" looking out for you.....truth merchants like Google and their  Knowledge-Base, Snopes.com, PoliticalFact and FactCheck.org. to name a few. 

I have to admit, Snopes.com is a good source for confirming if male Bigfoot do indeed have three testicles or not, or if the rat droppings in your box of Special K cereal will cause your internal organs to turn to mush and make your head explode.  But they have a known to trip over themselves to spin embarrassing statements of left leaning politicians and celebrities.   

PolitiFact is part of the Poynter Institute, a school for journalists in St. Petersburg, Fla. and known for a such a  marked ideological bias, that a website was created to fact-check the fact checkers.    The Tampa Bay Times, which produces the PolitFact Truth-o-Meter, has not endorsed a single Republican candidate this century for any of the three most important positions on the Florida election ballot.  

FactCheck.org  is Project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center. That should be all you need to know there. They are firmly in the Global Warming camp and many of the PBS media commentators of the past are entrenched in the works. A little time on their pages give no doubt which way their unbiased fact-checking leans. 

So have no fear Truth Seekers, in the future your Internet searches will be fact checked for righteousness by the 'Holders of the Truth'. And now that 'We The People' in Washington have set the Internet free from oppression, in your  more receptive state" the Giants at Google will guarantee it's truthfulness for all.

Long Live Google, and Power to the Correct People!

3 Things You Never Knew Are Hidden On The $1 Bill

Middle Finger News Service

You probably have a $1 bill in your wallet right now, but have you looked close enough to
see the symbolism hidden right in plain sight?


#1 - Instructions For How To Use A Dollar Bill


The designers of the $1 bill had a unique vision for the smallest unit of paper money, and part
of it included printing a set of instructions for how to use the dollar bill on the bill itself.
Read “The Instructions,” as they’re commonly called, in the picture above!




#2 - Free  Coupons 


Once you see this one, it can’t be unseen. Just to the right of Washington’s head, there’s a relatively
unnoticeable dotted line. To the right of that line is a tear-off coupon for a free appetizer or dessert
with purchase of an adult entrĂ©es at Chili’s.




#3 - The Faded Croz


If you don’t look hard enough you just might miss it, but the faded picture of musician David Crosby,
commonly  known as The Faded Croz, is mysteriously nestled to the left of Washington’s portrait.
Many have debated its meaning, but most agree that it portends some sort of tragic event in
the nation’s future. Illuminati? You be the judge.

Arrogant Media Elites Mock Middle America



By Salena Zito via RCP
The media's elitists just keep getting you wrong, America. And this has nothing to do with whether something is or isn't a “gotcha” question, because that is always the easy excuse for any candidate who is unhappy with a news story.
The root of the problem is how Washington and New York media view Americans and their values beyond the powerful, wealthy and intellectually elite world; it is a much deeper, disturbing and, yes, dangerous problem than the silly questions. Last week the DC-New York media responded in epic fashion to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's comment that he didn't think President Obama “loves” America. They nearly tripped over themselves to ask every potential GOP presidential contender if he agreed with Giuliani; their braying eventually led to mocking Christians.
In an interview with the Trib, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said that while Giuliani could have better framed his point, it was accurate. Then Jindal offered a critical observation: When we face truly grave concerns, from economic disconnection to radicalized Islam, why did this supposed issue rise above those others for so long and with such velocity?
Jindal nailed it.
Reporters will always ask questions that place candidates in a pinch; that's their job, Jindal said. But this time, they took that responsibility to a different level.  When reporters manipulate answers in order to drive clicks to their websites, or try over and over to “drive” news with non-news, it's a dangerous game.
For the elites, the Rudy incident was a Big Story.  But most Americans knew nothing about it, or wondered why it mattered.
In Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio bars, diners and bakeries and on the streets, the Americans I interviewed — men, women, whites, blacks, old, young — repeatedly said Giuliani wasn't running for office, so why should we care what he said.
Many of them blamed my profession for not asking real questions, such as what are we doing about national threats like ISIS, have the Veterans Affairs problems been fixed, or is that top-heavy economy rolling their way anytime soon.  A lot of them believe the New York-Washington press corps fundamentally misunderstands where Middle America voters stand on such issues.
Most of them marveled at how those journalists became obsessed with Giuliani's words at a time when the president is asking for congressional authorization of his use of military force that doesn't involve much military force — and were amazed that this was not the week's real scandal.
But the need to drive the news got worse: First, a Washington Post reporter asked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker if he thought Obama was a Christian; Walker replied that he didn't know because he'd never asked the president about his religious beliefs.  Walker's answer led to the braying-of-the-jackasses on social media, followed by widespread mocking of the Wisconsin Republican's recurring comment that he talks with God. (Repeated tweets noted that he was recently asked under public records laws to provide “a copy/transcript of all communications with God, the Lord, Christ, Jesus or any other form of deity.”)
On any given Sunday, outside the Washington-New York bubble, people go to church, pray, eat breakfast with their families — and make God an integral part of their lives. They don't understand the press mocking that tradition.  And I am not just talking about conservatives here. Millions of religious Democrats are out there, values-voters who have not shown up for presidential elections in recent years, all because of the same kind of disconnect.
A reporter's job is to report the news, not to drive it or to create it. A reporter's audience is not just an echo chamber, not just D.C. friends, rivals, partisans and followers on social media. (Remember: Only 8 percent of Americans get their news through Twitter.)  As consumers of news, most Americans want an honest look at the potential presidential candidates and where they stand on serious issues.
Reporters mock those news-consumers when they mock candidates who aren't like the reporters themselves — but who are very much like normal Americans.
It is unforgivably arrogant for anyone in the media to think that the rest of the country thinks like they do.

This Should Help Convince You of Obama's Commitment to the Muslim World

Drudge has a headline up right now "OBAMA THREATENED TO SHOOT DOWN ISRAELI JETS". If this story is true, it has to be one of the strangest stories I've read in a while.  An American President threatens to shoot down an allies' planes attempting to protect it's future security and preventing the spread of nuclear weapons to the mid-east and to it's mortal enemy who vows to destroy it, Iran.

Israel National News
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.”
Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. Brzezinski was a top candidate to become an official advisor to President Obama, but he was downgraded after Republican and pro-Israel Democratic charges during the campaign that Brzezinski’s anti-Israel attitude would damage Obama at the polls. - Read More
Is a country with an offensive missile program and known to be the largest backer of terrorism against Israel in the middle east a good candidate for a peaceful nuclear program ---  a country bathed in solar rays and swimming in oil?  No.  Barrack Obama and John Kerry are actively destabilizing the Middle East and the world as a whole by agreeing to give Iran the means and opportunity to developed nuclear weapons. 

Obama's attitude toward Israel and refusal in dealing with the muslim cancer on civilization is looking more day by day as being a blatant Anti-Semitic policy by his administration. 

Who is really pulling his strings...

* No Tuxedos Required *

The Dynamic Duo Will Save Us.......


The democrat Party, blooded, morally bankrupt and out of ideas, set to coronate a corrupt grandmother to run for president in 2016 have come up with their catch phase du jour for the immediate future. The phrase President Obama used in his Spreading of Manure State of the Union Speech was, "The Middle Class Economy" (I hear "A Turd in Every Pot" came in a close second). The democrats, after opening up the national treasury first to Wall Street and then to the unproductive of society, will now save the middle Class!  And out front in this valiant endeavor is none other then two of our favorite left-wing loons.

Earlier this week, the darling of the far left, Sen. Elizabeth 'Fauxcahontas' Warren and fellow Legislative Rep. Elijah " is this microphone on " Cummings launched their new Middle Class Prosperity Project, because they are a couple of democrats who really care about you and would like to see you prosper.

Warren kicked off the first in a series of forums on the middle class and how Big Government can do all matter of good progressive thingies to save it before it is too late and the GOP drowns  it forever in a bathtub.

So let us swoon, together, at Warren professorsplaining it so nice and sweet and making it so easy for all of us to understand:



Now let us look at liz's splanation of the situation:
"For decades after the Great Depression, America built a middle class that was the envy of the world. Everyone shared in our economic growth. From 1935 to 1980, 90 percent of America’s families — that is, everyone except the top 10 percent — got 70 percent of all the income growth in that 35 years. It was a formula that worked. As our country got richer, our families got richer. But starting in the 1980s, something changed. It happened partly because of deliberate choices made right here in Washington. The choice to tax assembly line workers and teachers at higher rates than billionaire hedge fund managers."
Oh Lizzy,  a Democrat named John Kennedy cut top tax rates from 91% to 70% and created one of the largest expansions of the American economy in the post WW2 economies and saved his family a buttload in the process........and passed by a Democrat controlled congress. Ronald Reagan cut top tax rates to 39%......passed by a democrat controlled congress,  and also created a booming economy your party is still secretly envious of.  Middle income tax rates, adjusted for inflation have gone down since 1981.

Check federal expenditures on non-productive, non-taxpayers, Ms. warren. 
"The choice to cut support for higher education and leave students with massive debt.    
Liz. Liz Liz....The skyrocketing cost of higher education is because universities pay professors like you high salaries (like your Harvard gig paying $350,000 to teach one class) to write books and research papers no one reads instead of teaching the students, and building sports facilities for coaches who make millions of dollars. It is not the taxpayers responsibility to finance private education to institutions with billions of dollars in endowments. Taxpayer funding for college educations should be reserved for veterans and high preforming disadvantaged students. 
"The choice to gut funding for infrastructure and basic science research that grows the economy and and saves lives. All while giving corporations fat tax breaks for moving jobs overseas."
Lizzy, we spend almost as much on Research and Development as Europe and Japan combined. And do I have to remind you of all the money that has been thrown down the hole on Scam Solar Energy  Research Companies financed by a recent democrat controlled congress? And ask your boy Barack what happened to the research at NASA that he de-balled in favor of financing green energy. 

As for giving tax breaks for corporations to move jobs overseas, see the North American Trade Agreement and video of Democrat Bill Clinton signing the treaty.........approved by a democrat controlled congress. The jobs go overseas because of one of the highest global corporate taxes rates.  Lower it, they come home. The dirty little secret democrats don't face up to is, your union buddies have killed more job growth in this country then taxes, but we won't talk about that.....   
"Recently Republicans seem to have discovered the struggles of America’s middle class. Out of nowhere, they’re suddenly talking about this problem. Well that’s great, but talk is cheap and when it comes to action.  I’ll believe Republicans care about what’s happening to America’s middle class when they stop blocking legislation that would require billionaires to pay taxes at least at the same rate that teachers and firefighters do."
The top 1% still pay 50% of all taxes payed. And most people who vote republican are middle class. The middle class thrived in this country until.....oh..... a community organizer decided he would follow a proven failed economic philosophy that has kept the economy in the ditch and doubled the debt.  And May I remind you 8 of the 10 most wealthy counties in the country voted overwhelmingly for Obama....twice!
"I could go on, but the point is the same: Talk is cheap. It’s time for action — action that will strengthen America’s middle-class families and build a strong future, action that will produce good jobs now and in the future. It is time to put up or shut up."
Yes Ms. Warren,  talk is cheap.  After 30 years of federal mandates pushed on the states and municipalities, causing higher taxes at the local level, interfering and driving up cost of everything from education, healthcare and commerce, to making it difficult for small business to grow, don't patronize us by acting like you, your party and your bald headed moron sidekick now actually care about the middle class. 

Much like democrat women say about your mythical War on Women, "men just don't understand", well I say what would someone who lives in a $5.4 million mansion' understand about the struggles of the Middle class or the foot on their neck???

That Legacy Thing is Working Out Real Well.....

The Cancer of Multiculturalism

"College campus idiots — and that includes faculty members and administrators — call for the celebration of and respect for all cultures. In their eyes, it’s racist Eurocentrism to think that Western values and culture are superior to others. But that’s the height of stupidity. 
Ask your campus multiculturalist who believes in cultural equivalency: Is forcible female genital mutilation, as practiced in nearly 30 sub-Saharan African and Middle Eastern countries, a morally equivalent cultural value? In most of the Middle East, there are numerous limits on women — such as prohibitions on driving, employment, voting and education. Under Islamic law, in some countries, female adulterers face death by stoning, and thieves face the punishment of having their hand severed. Some multiculturalists are members of campus LGBT groups. Ask them to what extent the Muslim culture would tolerate their lifestyle." - Walter Williams
