Twitter Never Forgets: Remember The 8 Public Figures That Cheered His Release…

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was officially charged with desertion on Wednesday. In light of that charge, these politicians, journalists and political personalities might want to consider walking back some of the statements listed below.

Vice President Joe Biden:

Welcome home, Sergeant Bergdahl. Today we are elated about his return and reaffirm our commitment to recover the warriors still left behind.

— Vice President Biden (@VP) May 31, 2014

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid:

— Craig Caplan (@CraigCaplan) June 4, 2014

National Security Advisor Susan Rice:

Our hearts are filled with joy for the Bergdahl family

— Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice) May 31, 2014[…]

Meanwhile, here’s what Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) had to say on the issue back in June of 2014, in response to the White House push back at Bergdahl’s former platoon mates who’d expressed concern about his service:

“I want to say something to the anonymous sources in the president’s administration who are disparaging the service of Second Platoon and Blackfoot Company. Show yourself, speak in your own name, have the courage of your convictions. And if you don’t, shut up, and stand back and thank these men for their service.”

Shocker: Email Scandal Forced Hillary Clinton To Delay 2016 Bid Announcement…

Hillary wink

Hillary to rummage in the closet and find some skeletons on Obama and Val Jar.

Via Washington Times

Many of the key figures cited in a scathing inspector general’s report this week are allies of Hillary Rodham Clinton, marking the latest in a series of stumbles for the former first lady and secretary of state that likely forced her to delay her planned presidential campaign announcement.

A Democratic strategist familiar with her team’s thinking said they are scrambling to limit the damage and readjust the campaign rollout schedule after the Homeland Security Department’s inspector general revealed an apparent cronyism scandal that ensnared Mrs. Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodham, and two of her political confidants, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and former Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell.

The accusation that a top Obama administration official did favors for the three politically connected Democrats follows other damaging revelations swirling around Mrs. Clinton, including that the Clinton Foundation pocketed foreign donations while she was secretary of state and that she exclusively used a private email account that concealed official business while she was in office.

“She is being tarnished before the race starts. It’s kind of like if you’re a race horse having a leg broken on a regular basis and the wound never heals,” said Hank Sheinkopf, a veteran Democratic campaign adviser who worked for President Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign.

“Every time there is a piece of news like this, it delays the announcement,” he said. “You can’t announce when you’re facing that kind of controversy and you have to respond to those kinds of questions rather than deal with what you intend to do with the campaign and talk about the issues you want to discuss.”[…]

The inspector general’s report detailed how a top Obama administration official appeared to give “favoritism and special access” to politically connected Democrats who intervened in the application process for the EB-5 visa program, which grants visas to wealthy foreigners who invest in American business ventures.

Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alehandro Mayorkas, whom President Obama promoted even while he was under investigation, meddled in three cases involving Mr. Rodham, Mr. McAuliffe and Mr. Rendell, as well as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat.

Mr. Rodham and Mr. McAuliffe, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee who helped run presidential campaigns for Mr. and Mrs. Clinton, were deeply involved in the GreenTech electric car company. They contacted Mr. Mayorkas, who pushed for approval despite career officials who wanted to deny it, according to the report.

Mr. Mayorkas also meddled in a 2011 movie project called LA Films, according to the report, which Mr. Rendell was pushing on behalf of an investment firm where he was a paid consultant.

Obama Admin Continues To Insist Airstrikes In Tikrit Are Supporting Iraqi Forces, Not Shiite Terror Militias…

Tikritairstrike

Right and Yemen is a model of success. Is Iran relaying the request for air support through Kerry?

Via LWJ

Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR), the US-led Coalition that is launching airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, announced that it conducted 17 strikes against Islamic State fighters entrenched in Tikrit. US commanders continue to insist that they are supporting Iraqi security forces, and not the Iranian-backed Shiite militias who make up more than two-thirds of the fighting force in the Tikrit offensive.

The 17 airstrikes targeted “an ISIL [Islamic State] building, two ISIL bridges, three ISIL checkpoints, two ISIL staging areas, two ISIL berms, an ISIL roadblock and an ISIL controlled command and control facility,” according to a press release. The US military continues to refer to Islamic State as ISIL, the outdated acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Syria).

The airstrikes launched “in support of Iraqi Security Forces in Tikrit commenced last night after a request from the Government of Iraq,” CJTF-OIR stated. The 17 targets hit in the last 24 hours were “approved by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense.”

US military officials have previously said that support for the Tikrit offensive was being withheld because of the massive presence of the Iranian-backed militias and Iranian military units and advisers.

Despite this previous acknowledgment, Lieutenant General James Terry, the commander of CJTF-OIR, skips over the presence of Shiite militias in the Tikrit operation in the latest statement.

“The ongoing Iraqi and Coalition air strikes are setting the conditions for offensive action to be conducted by Iraqi forces currently surrounding Tikrit,” said Lt. Gen. James Terry. “Iraqi Security Forces supported by the Coalition will continue to gain territory from Daesh [a vaguely pejorative Arabic acronym for the Islamic State].”

Senate Dems Propose Budget Amendment For “Temporary Surtax” To Fight ISIS…

A surtax to fight a JV team.

Via PJ Media

The Senate is plowing through a slew of amendments today expected to last until midnight, dubbed the “vote-a-rama” that precedes the budget vote.

One of those amendments would create an ISIS tax.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), backed by Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), proposed a “temporary surtax” to help cover the cost of military operations against ISIS.

That would be discontinued, his office said without offering more details, “once relevant military operations have concluded” against the Islamic State.

According to yesterday’s congressional record, the amount collected would be $8,800,000,000.

Feminist Quote Of The Day: “Loud Clapping Can Be Intimidating…. Plus, Who Doesn’t Love Jazz Hands?”…

Jazz hands!

A feminist leader’s defense to this story.

Via BBC:

Women at a national student event have been asked to use jazz hands instead of clapping.

The request came during the National Union of Students (NUS) Women’s Conference in Solihull, West Midlands.

The NUS Women’s Campaign tweeted: “Some delegates are requesting that we move to jazz hands rather than clapping, as it’s triggering anxiety. Please be mindful!”

Delegates have told Newsbeat “it’s a nice way to show solidarity”.

Nona Buckley-Irvine is general secretary at the London School of Economics Students’ Union (LSE SU).

She told Newsbeat: “Jazz hands are used throughout NUS in place of clapping as a way to show appreciation of someone’s point without interrupting or causing disturbance, as it can create anxiety.

“I’m relatively new to this and it did feel odd at first, but once you’ve used jazz hands a couple of times it becomes a genuinely nice way to show solidarity with a point and it does add to creating a more inclusive atmosphere.”

LSE SU women’s officer Gee Linford-Grayson agreed: “As someone who is new to the NUS conference culture it surprised me at first, but actually within a few rounds of jazz hands applause it began to make a lot of sense, as loud clapping and whooping can be intimidating and distracting when you’re speaking on stage.

“Plus who doesn’t like jazz hands?!”

CRUZ: On the global warming alarmists, anyone who actually points to the evidence that disproves their apocalyptical claims, they don’t engage in reasoned debate. What do they do? They scream, ‘You’re a denier.’ They brand you a heretic. Today, the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers. It used to be [that] it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.

If you look at global warming alarmists, they don’t like to look at the actual facts and the data. The satellite data demonstrate that there has been no significant warming whatsoever for 17 years. Now that’s a real problem for the global warming alarmists. Because all those computer models on which this whole issue is based predicted significant warming, and yet the satellite data show it ain’t happening.

Latest Obama Interviewer Had Sex With A Japanese Doll For A News Story…

shanesmith

Thought cereal tub girl would be the last embarrassing interviewer? Think again…

Via MRCTV:

The latest man to score an interview with President Obama, Shane Smith, has conducted some hard-hitting interviews, including one with a Japanese sex doll.

You’re not misreading that; in a video from 2008, founder and CEO of Vice media Shane Smith pays to have sex with a doll in a Tokyo doll brothel. The doll is shown spread-eagle on a bed, and the camera provides several gratuitous up-skirt shots.

The whole sordid deed is then filmed in graphic detail, from Smith choosing a doll and her hair color, to deciding on an outfit for her, popping a Viagra, taking a shower pre-coitus, and then blurred-out shots of the actual act itself.

“I’m excited, I want to f*** a cartoon,” says Smith.

Yes, this is every bit as weird as it sounds.

The company Smith founded, Vice.com, “revels daily in hard drug use, weird sex and every sort of bodily effluvium,” reports Forbes, and this video, part of the “Vice Guide to Sex,” is no exception.

At the end of the video, Smith says:

“We found other brothels where you can get schoolgirls who will chain themselves up to a fake train, so we can mimic groping them in a train. And we found another one where they’re in schools, doing math at the board, and we just go up and ravage them. It’s a very civilized, superior country, Japan. Lots for any fetish.”

ISIS Fatwa Ordered 80 Lashes For Anyone Caught Watching “El Clasico” Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona Soccer Game…

Using the severed head of an infidel as a ball is the only sharia sanctioned version of soccer per ISIS (I’m making that up but it’s probably true).

Via Daily Mail:

Islamic State miltiants threatened to give anyone caught watching last Sunday’s Real Madrid versus Barcelona match 80 lashes.

The militant group has imposed a strict ban against any entertainment including music and football which it considers a ‘product of the decadent West.’

Clerics issued the edict across all the Isis-held territories in Syria and Northern Iraq, including the city of Mosul which has been governed as per the strict dictates of Sharia since it was taken under Isis control in June.

It is not yet known if anyone was caught watching El Clasico in which Barcelona secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid with Luis Suarez’s second-half winner.

In January, Isis militants executed 13 teenage boys for watching the Asian Cup football match between Iraq and Jordan last week.

One In Eight Illegal Immigrants In The United States Have A White Collar Job…

illegal_immigrants

Ludicrous.

Via Fusion:

The share of all unauthorized immigrant workers with management and professional jobs grew to 13% in 2012 from 10% in 2007 — an overall increase of 180,000, according to new data from the Pew Research Center.

Meanwhile, the share with construction or production jobs declined to 29% from 34%.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession,” Pew says.

Despite these advances, undocumented workers’ representation among all white-collar occupations remains low — just 2%. Agriculture has replaced construction as the industry with the largest share of undocumented workers. Sixteen percent of all ag workers were undocumented as of 2012, the most recent year for which data was available.

That compares with 12 percent for construction. In 2008, according to Pew, they comprised 14 percent of the construction industry and just 13 percent of farming.

UNC Student Newspaper: Concealed Carry Doesn’t Combat “Rape Culture”, It Reinforces It…

What kind of ass backwards planet do these people live on?

Via Campus Reform:

Allowing concealed carry on campus will only perpetuate rape culture, according to the University of North Carolina’s The Daily Tar Heel’s editorial board.

In an editorial published on Monday, the student newspaper criticized the school’s Students for Concealed Carry organization and claimed that the school’s student group “took advantage of the national dialogue on sexual assault to push their own agenda.” According to the editorial board, concealed carry would only further place the blame for sexual assault on victims.

“Like other items on the list of measures that would supposedly prevent attacks, guns would not address the causes of sexual assault,” the editorial board wrote.

“Even worse, they could reinforce rape culture because the burden of stopping assault would be further placed upon women.”

The opinion column also said that allowing concealed carry on campus would also “create the unintended consequence of increased homicides stemming from intimate partner violence.”

“To reduce sexual assault, focus should be maintained on preventative programs that challenge rigid gender roles and promote healthy relationships as well as intervention trainings that teach peers to be active bystanders rather than on measures that will not solve the problem,” the editorial wrote.

Dem Rep Barbara Lee: Global Warming Could Drive Millions Of Women To Trade Sex For Food And Water…

Remember when the worst thing they fear mongered about was polar bears? Good times…

Via The Blaze:

A senior House Democrat has once again issued an apocalyptic warning that climate change will hit women harder than men, and that it could drive millions of poor women to engage in “transactional sex” in order to provide food and water for their families.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) proposed a resolution on Wednesday that said as the climate changes, it will cause food and water scarcity around the world. That will create pressures on poor women in particular, since they are often charged with growing food and collecting water for their families.

As resources dwindle, it could force many women to barter sexual favors for food and water, the resolution stated.

“[F]ood insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” it read.

Ridiculous: VA Hospital Director Was Paid $288K To Relocate 140 MILES…

Diana+Rubens+House+Holds+Hearing+VA+Scandal+4fyfpi3Woa2l

As veterans continue to get shafted by the VA, the dbags at the top keep getting fat payments.

Via Daily Caller:

The director of the Philadelphia regional VA hospital was paid $288,000 in “relocation payments” to move the 140 miles from Washington, D.C. to her new home last year.

Diana Rubens was tapped last June to take over the Philadelphia hospital, which is one of many currently being investigated over claims that it placed veterans on unauthorized wait-lists.

Rubens, who previously served as the D.C.-based deputy undersecretary for field operations, where she oversaw 57 regional hospitals and four area offices, was brought in to help fix the embattled Philadelphia facility.

A breakdown of Rubens’ “relocation payments” was not immediately available, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, but a VA spokesman said that there was nothing inappropriate with the spending.

Federal regulations allow for the reimbursement of relocation expenses including the “costs of house-hunting, moving, terminating leases, and a per-diem rate for meals and temporary housing for an employee and his or her family,” the spokesman said.

But that hefty repayment is nearly 160 percent of what Rubens earned in base pay all of last year, raising questions over what exactly that money could have gone towards.

Rubens was paid more than $181,000 in 2014, according to the website FedSmith.com, which maintains a database of federal employee compensation.
