The NY Times is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Obama Regime. Their inane attempt to calumniate Bowe Bergdahl’s platoon mates has fallen as flat as the Regime’s serial futile explanations of the five for one swap.

Laura Ingraham's calumniating of Eric Cantor did the trick in VA.

There is no penalty when the government calumniates against its people, under this department of injustice.

In case you’re wondering what happened to the vaunted bipartisanship in D.C.;

Calumny ate it.

The only thing that would surprise me more than Cantor's defeat would be the Rangers waking up and winning four straight.

Everything I needed to know about Eric Holder, I learned immediately after the 2008 election, when he refused to prosecute the New Black Panther thugs in Philadelphia who committed the worst case of voter intimidation since Bull Connor was Commissioner of Public Safety in Birmingham, Alabama, in the 1950s. Holder argued that what was done to the Blacks was far worse than what happened to some White people in Philly, so he wouldn't prosecute. Instead of the Constitution he swore to uphold, Eric Holder works under the "Two Wrongs Make A Right" school of legal theory.

And Calumny isn't the name of Eric Holder's dog. Is it?

Obama’s blatant support in favor of the Taliban during the recent Bergdahl deal is just one more move towards the general goal of bringing an Islamic “Calumniate” onto the scene...

i'm investigating cavalier breeders within driving distance. We would like a ruby little girl pup to be ready for us in September, after the wedding.

not sure how hard that will be to find, but guess we will see.

Harmony in DC is a democrat and the press (but I repeat myself) saying, “You agree with what I want.”

Just got the sweetest handwritten sympathy card from the vet about Chanel saying she was one of her favorites. Made me bawl all over again.

Haven’t seen him yet and he’s not been grooming chan for prob 5 mo or so since we did not want to stress her. Grooming stresses them quite a bit. Plus the guy is Korean and his ingrish isn’t great. ; )
