Above is one of hundreds of links about a Florida Marine who made a wrong turn and wound up in Mexico. He has been held there for months 35 days of which he was chained to his bed both feet and both hands.
Time to boycott anything mexico maybe we will get their attention.

Reid, McDonnell, Boehner, and Pelosi--knew what was happening in Benghazi. I suspect one reason Boehner dragged his feet on a Select Committee was to hide their participation in and knowledge of what was going on there.

I strongly suspect McCain (and Lady Linda) is up to his fat neck in it, as well.

This entire episode is a disgrace. First, to the corrupt Mexicans who run a horrible country which should be one of the jewels of the civilized world but instead is a murderous cesspool, and second, to our own government who apparently could give a good crap less what happens to this young man and especially because he is an honorable serviceman and was carrying his own guns in his truck.

My guess is they will let him rot in Mexico as an example to all we snaggle-toothed, bitter clinger, knuckle-dragging gun-toters they so detest in this country because he is one of "ours". I can see them roaring with laughter and high-fiving each other as we speak.

but I understand that gun running operations, secret and away from public eyes, are something every president indulges in.

It's true. But, in this one, Obama has to justify arming terrorists. McCain (and Linda) were all out in the open demanding this, and I suspect they know a LOT about the whole operation in Libya. Put their asses on the stand, Trey.

Maybe, but when an Administration wants to keep things very quiet and still inform Congress, they will go to just the top four and demand no leaks.

they were on Free Republic, complaining about Boehner and McConnell being the same as democrats, and now talking about voting democrat to really show 'em that conservatives cannot be taken for granted! Seriousl

I've been around the dance floor more than once placing the blame correctly where it belongs, at the feet of the "conservative chauvanists".

These morons gave us Obama and other "enemies domestic".

It’s interesting you name Mumbles McConnell as probably knowing about this gun running operation. If indeed there was such a thing.

But hey, Fast and Furious had us shipping guns to drug cartels in Mexico so it’s very believable.

I believe the Blue Blood GOP Ruling class knows about a lot but says nothing....even the VA....you know they knew.

Why didn’t MCCAIN use this as a campaign item? McCain, the great American military hero, could have gotten whistle blowers out there.

Instead he went on and on about campaign finance reform, something that worried so many Americans that they lost sleep.

Or Romney, even better....he was running against Obama after a term served. They could have made this VA thing into a winner.

They’re NOT on our side, folks, they’re on THEIR side.

With all of the GAO reports done on the VA, of course they knew. Every Congressmen and the President knew what was happening. But now they are affecting concern because the public has been made aware via the MSM and whistle blowers. It is just more hypocrisy by the political elites who depend on fooling the dumb-downed American public. They are never disappointed.

Great points Dan. My group has won more elections and petitions than any group in Oregon. We live in a blue state and a blue district yet we win election after election.

We have one secret, we get out our Republican voters. We don’t lose from not getting enough crossover votes, we lose by not getting enough Republican votes. Our team has realized that and are solving that problem.

We just got another ballot measure to stop Light Rail in my town and will have a vote in Sept to completely stop it. We did it by getting enough Republicans to sign the measure. This system can win any election.

Why

Because a similar program ran under the Bush Administration, but they did follow through and busted up operations.

The RATs gave guns to murdering bastards and then just dropped the ball. Many people died.

You know the RATagandists will spin tell vicious lies about what happened.

Strasser: [after Laszlo leads the band in playing the French national anthem] You see what I mean? If Laszlo’s presence in a cafe can inspire this unfortunate demonstration, what more will his presence in Casablanca bring on? I advise that this place be shut up at once.

Renault: But everybody’s having such a good time.

Strasser: Yes, much too good a time. The place is to be closed.

Renault: But I’ve no excuse to close it!

Strasser: Find one.

[Strasser leaves, ending the conversation. Renault walks into the middle of the room and blows his whistle.]

Renault: Everybody is to leave here immediately! This cafe is closed until further notice. Clear the room, at once!

Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?

Renault: I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

Employee of Rick’s: [hands Renault money] Your winnings, sir.

Renault: Oh, thank you, very much. Everybody out at once!

Its the return of jaibones from over at Hot Air:he still rocks:
its here:
http://hotair.com/archives/2014/05/25/open-thread-sunday-morning-talking-heads-127/comment-page-1/#comment-8108594

(Man, you guys are up and at it early today!)

It’s Sunday morning, and that means Propaganda with a capital D. Once again the Democrat/Liberal Media Complex will bring you all of the issues nearest and dearest to liberals of both parties, and attempt to de-emphasize the voices of over half of America – conservatives.

Will they succeed in drowning the rare conservative guest in their septic tank of liberal dopes?

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Preempted by Formula One auto racing

A dramatic improvement already. Since the story about NBC seeking psychiatric help for their idiot liberal “moderator” David Gregory, the entire show has been pre-empted by European sports broadcasts … twice. (Hey, a third Euro-waxing!) Heh.

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Richard Blumenthal – Liberal
• John Thune – Conservative
• Adam Kinzinger – RINO-ILL
• Ben Carson – Conservative activist

In this Year of the RINO, I find it interesting to note – Thune, largely disregarded as a RINO when he hinted at a run for President, is an 87 ACU conservative.

If you look at Thune’s fellow guest Adam Kinzinger and his fellow South Dakota “conservative” Kristi Noem, you have two House members both elected in 2010 with huge Tea Party support. Kinzinger sports a 3 year rating of 66 with a 52 in 2013 (and again – remember that the ACU is a pro-amnesty operation, so they don’t knock your pro-amnesty vote in their scoring model), and Noem racks up a 75, with a 62 rating in 2013. Maybe this is the gravest insult to the Tea Party – they elected some of the worst new RINOs in congress.

“This Week” on ABC
• Martin Dempsey – As painfully noted in the McRaven column this week, I despise all military leaders who praise our asswipe President, and most of those who work for him. I know nothing else about Dempsey.
• Eric Huntsman RINO
• Plouffe – Kook Left
• Rieckhoff – Army veteran, scandalized by a Stolen Valor incident; appears on all of the Kook Left shows. Got nothing else on him. Chime in if you have input.
• John Sununu – Conservative

Fairly typical for ABC. One con and a bunch of cloudy misdirection.

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Kelly Ayotte – RINO
• Derek Bennett – Another IAVA guy I know nothing about.

“State of the Union” on CNN
• Mike Pence – Conservative
• Bernie Sanders – Bernie the Socialist. Caucuses with the Democrats to keep them honest and centered.
• Jeff Miller – Conservative
• Penny Lee – Liberal

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Sanders – Double dip for the Socialist.

“Al Punto” on Racist TV / Univision
• John Boehner – RINO jackass
• Harry Reid – Liberal jackass
• Benjamin Netanyahu – Israeli guy

Hey, second time in a few months that The Racist TV Station hosted non-Mexican guests. Exciting.

Overall Score for the DNC Media – a Solid B-. Not bad. But go for a walk instead.

It helps when we name names and tell it like it is. The problem is Democrats elected to office and they then want to impose their will on America. There are no ‘good’ Democrat candidates. They will still support their leadership to the detriment of the country.

Would you consider going to the NAACP convention in Las Vegas to cover the proceedings? Some live-blogging, Nevada-style? I’m a little curious to know what is being said and by whom.


Folks I am very excited, see my message above. We had a big flap about the NAACP and if I do say so myself, I smacked them down two or three times.

Sussex County council presents great budget but tempest in teapot NAACP got all the attention. Why are septic tanks the enemy? Let’s look a bit closer into this local NAACP group…..some interesting things I found about it.

It is disheartening AND disgusting to know that the many ,many conservatives are more like the people conservatives constantly complain about...”they just want to watch American idol, they’re lazy and ignorant!”

Lots of big talk on the talk radio shows...and in the bars, but no action, no comittment or follow up.

The internet video is getting interesting in itself. Heard last week the State Department responded to the video before Benghazi even took place, as a preemptive strike about protests in Cairo. If true, that means the video was destined as an excuse before and not a response after. Sure makes it look worth looking into more thoroughly.

You are probably right but I see that as highly unlikely at this time.

We could start by boycotting Mexicans who are already in this country illegally but our political betters and their lobbying interests aren't about to have any of that. They see the votes and money instead.

Besides, now that the drug cartels have taken up permanent residence in this country we can look for even more money sloshing around our political system, greasing the hands of crooked politicians, judges, and cops. My guess is that is what is already driving this train.

I suspect the only thing that will prompt determined action by our citizenry is when heads and dismembered bodies start showing up in glitzy shopping malls and hanging from bridges and ordinary people start getting kidnapped for ransom and then get returned to their relatives a piece at a time. In the meantime, the politicians and others on the take will continue to take the money and run while talking big about "solving" the problem of "immigration".

It is a real problem having a 2000 mile undefended border with a narco-state and not expect the corruption to work it's way in when the political class doesn't want to stop it but instead encourages it when they see it as a mother lode of money and power.

Just got back from a bike ride around the community with Jackie the dog. We are bonding nicely and pic of the beautiful Jackie above.

It’s time for me to tell y’all about the men but hand to God I just tole my daughter and she’s STILL laughing.

I can’t mention names and I gotta be careful because there are some local Sussex county people and I have to be a little bit discrete.

Cause folks, I am 64 years old and THE MEN ARE EVERYWHERE!

Start laffing now.

That invitation to Las Vegas, well I got to make sure it is understood that I will not be staying in same room. Not that there was a hint of same but man, I got to keep my hands out all the time.

I thought there were way more older women than men? I mean, come on....where were all these men when I was 25!

No wait!

Well they were there then too but back then I was a women’s libber and hated men. Well so okay I married four different men so I am obviously heterosexual. Don’t even ask how many....never mind. Like I say, I was a women’s libber and sprang from the hippie era of free love.

Lessee, there’s quite a few married guys I got to watch for but it’s not really that they’re out to get me so much as they are to impress me . Or something. One night at choir two guys even got in a fight over me, one telling me some political gossip or such and another quite literally elbowing the guy out to dish me HIS political wisdom.

Understand that there’s a bunch of that. I’m pretty well known round these parts nowadays though gives me no great pride.

But men fighting over me? Hey, I’m cool with that.

Continue laffing.

My daughter, she lives across the street, and the child has seen me through at least three marriages. She gets concerned about the men going in and out of my house but serious, I interview the candidates and the Sheriff and all kinds of people. Then there’s the guy whose house I went to and wrote a great article about his awful neighbor.

He said he would take me to the best restaurant in Georgetown but unfortunately that’s a diner. Guy kept calling me on Friday nights; I think he was lonely.

But the men!

Well keep on laffing. When I told daughter about Las Vegas she’s cracking up.

I’d rather spend an evening with my granddaughter or my dog, in that order, than a man.

Though I might make an exception for the Sussex county lawyer.

I’m jus’ sayin’.

“I’ve been around the dance floor more than once placing the blame correctly where it belongs, at the feet of the “conservative chauvinists”.”

And then we have the RINO asses who gave us

Nixon - The Federal Department of Education - Today that translates to SEIU - Do you feel better now ROCKLOBSTER

Bush I - No new Taxes - Raised taxes gave us Bill & Hill - Do you feel better now ROCKLOBSTER

Bush II - No child left behind, Mr. Roberts - Gave us Obama - Do you feel better now ROCKLOBSTER

This is not meant to be an insult to Republicans - Just the facts

There may very well not be all that many small G’ment constitutionalists. Blaming Republican election losses on these people is looking in the wrong place.

Reagan was the last person who could communicate with America. The latest issue of The American Spectator has a story by Neal Freeman.
Bottom line - Bill Buckley, Ron Reagen has the ability to persuade the public

Today we use rancor, both of us, you ROCKLOBSTER as well as I are guilty of pissing other off

Bevins seems to have gotten caught up in a gotcha moment with his cock fighting speech. He did not resolve that, from the information I read and it’s that kind of thing that suppresses the vote.

I am also asking our candidates for US Senate to agree to NOT supporting McConnell for Senate President. Small thing and not binding but I want them on the record they will not support him if there’s a viable alternative.

I love women. Let me state that outright. In particular I love Mrs. Chandler, and though we've been together for almost 38 years, I still enjoy our relationship. But if I were ever to lose her, the last thing in the world I would do is look for a replacement. Relationships require time and energy and there are too many other things in this world for me to spend a lot of either on chasing women. So what to the world might look, in that unfortunate case, to be a lonely old man, would actually be a busy old man. A sarcastic, busy old man who loves women but doesn't have time for them.

It appears that Tokyo Rose and Bagdad Bob have much in common. As both as “innocent”

Maybe under this definition Joe Goebbels to is innocent.

Or maybe the US has too many laws and a “good” prosecutor can selectively choose to prosecute or exonerate depending on the presidents wishes.

I have no issue with small government conservatives. I are one!

However, and from now on, when I hear one bitching about RIONs and they haven’t even volunteered to man phone banks, go door-to-door, work by spreading the word, etc, etc, and then don’t even VOTE...

Well, from now on, I spit on the ground. They’re f-’n dirt to me.

Bevins would have won if he got enough votes. Or put it another way—McConnell would have been tossed out as the RINO he is if ENOUGH conservatives, small government or whatever, had gone to the polls and voted against him. 27% isn’t enough.

“If conservatives did not defeat them in primaries, wherever possible, they are responsible.”

Your logic eludes me. How do you ascribe fault to the few “conservatives” who voted in the primaries for non RINO options?

Bray has it right by doing a very active Get Out The Vote campaign. And we need local politicians who are worth voting for.

When are the hearings to begin? Anybody know?
++++++++
If Gowdy is smart he will work on getting depositions from all the key players first. Get them under oath. Force some new leads out of them. Get some new fresh witnesses. More depositions. More new witnesses. More depositions.

Line up the ducks.

Then hold the open hearings and call Her Majesty, Her Majesty ‘s Replacement and all the rest of the key players.

That would be my game plan.

Was there a “stand up” or “go” order?

Yes.

http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/10/198791.htm

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:“...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.”

TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University

“Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”

An old man was walking along the sidewalk when he happened upon a frog. He stopped to examine it, and was amazed as the frog began to speak to him.
.
“I am not a frog, but a beautiful young princess upon whom a terrible incantation has been cast. If you would only break the spell by giving me a kiss, I would be transformed back to a woman, and my gratitude would know no bounds. I will become your slave, and fulfill your every desire.”
.
The old man thought about it for a moment, then picked up the frog and put it in his coat pocket.
The frog-princess cried out from inside the pocket. “Didn’t you hear what I said? You could have a beautiful young princess as your very own.”
.
The old man said, “At my age, I’d rather have a talking frog.”

The “indicated in the last debate” moderator, CANDY CROWLEY...
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/16/transcript-second-presidential-debate/

OBAMA: ...So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions.

Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.

Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again.

And number three, we are going to find out who did this and we’re going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them.

...ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

OBAMA: Get the transcript.

CROWLEY: It — it — it — he did in fact, sir. So let me — let me call it an act of terror...

OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy?

How do you ascribe fault to the few “conservatives” who voted in the primaries for non RINO options?

I don't!

I "ascribe fault to the few 'conservatives' who” DID NOT VOTE "in the primaries for non RINO options."

Maybe you need to read a little more about this lady, because I would never put her in a class with Bagdad Bob or Joe Goebbels. She was trapped in Japan as she just happened to be visiting family, ended up being forced into cooperating with the Japanese under duress, actually made an effort to help both the POW’s in Japan & managed to finesse info out to our forces warning them of impending action, while keeping her captors ignorant of what she was doing. And then faced unjust prosecution by our gov’t because they wanted a scapegoat. I think she’s truly a heroine. She did better under the circumstances forced upon her than I would have done.
