Obama Asks Americans To Imagine What It Would Be Like “If We Carried Ourselves More Like Ted Kennedy?”…

More dead women? More drunken debauchery?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now since this is a joyous occasion, this is not the time for me to suggest a slew of new ideas for reform. Although, I do have some. Maybe I’ll just mention one. What if we carried ourselves more like Ted Kennedy? What if we worked to follow his example a little bit harder?

Report: U.S. Drone Airstrike Against ISIS Accidentally Kills Two Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commanders In Iraq…

droneforSaqib

Oopsie!

(AP) – Tehran says a U.S. drone strike killed two Iranian advisers in Iraq last week, but the United States says it has only struck Islamic State (IS) militants in its campaign.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said on its sepahnews.ir website on March 30 that the strike occurred on March 23, just after the U.S.-led coalition began air strikes to support Iraqi forces trying to retake the IS-held city of Tikrit.

The website identified the dead as Ali Yazdani and Hadi Jafari. It said they were buried on March 29.

The Associated Press news agency quoted the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as saying the “international coalition is aimed at Daesh only,” using another term for the IS extremist group.

Without directly addressing the Iranian claim, the statement said, “All airstrikes are carried out through the alliance with the Iraqi government and in full coordination with the (Iraqi) Ministry of Defense.”

“The Armed Forces will give a firm and remorsing response to any practical threat by the enemies, specially the US and the Zionist regime, in proportion to the level and type of the hostile attempts and within the framework of threat-against-threat,” the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said in a statement on the occasion of the Islamic Republic Day (April1).

foxx-obama

(CNN) – Some viewers of the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night took to social media to vent about the opening monologue, saying one controversial joke crossed the line.

Musician and actor Jamie Foxx hosted the second annual awards show in Los Angeles.

“We got some ground-breaking performances, here too, tonight,” Foxx said. “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”

There have been reports that Jenner, an Olympic gold medalist, plans to transition from male to female. However, Jenner has not spoken publicly about any such possibility.

Many television viewers took to social media to voice outrage. The hashtag #iHeartRadioMusicAwards rocketed to become a top trend.

“Jamie Foxx just made a terrible, disgusting joke about Bruce Jenner’s rumored transition on this trash awards show,” tweeted @laurennostro.

“Seriously #JamieFoxx? #BruceJenner jokes?” wrote @AngelaPquigley. “You’re disgusting, that’s not ok. It wasn’t funny, just mean spirited and lazy.”

Yes, Let’s Remember The Real Ted Kennedy…

Edward M. Kennedy is being celebrated today with the opening of an institute dedicated to his memory. Joe Biden and President Obama were among the speakers in attendance. With classic irony, Obama said Kennedy had “bridged partisan divide” and Joe Biden said he was “an anchor for many of us in our personal lives”.

Obama described Kennedy’s ideology saying it was that “you should help people, that you should be empathetic and that you should put yourself in other shoes, and see through their eyes”.

That empathy or aid did not extend to Mary Jo Kopechne, of course. Kopechne was riding in a car in Chappaquidick with Ted Kennedy in 1969 after a party, when the car went off a bridge into the water. Kennedy got out of the car and left the scene with Kopechne still trapped in the car under water. But Kennedy had gone home to Edgartown and didn’t report the accident until the following morning, ten hours later. By the time authorities were then able to get to the car, she was dead.

At the inquest into her death, the diver who found her, Captain of the Edgartown Fire Rescue, John Farrar, said this was the basic position in which he found Kopechne:

He testified that she didn’t die in the accident but that she suffocated from lack of air, after having breathed all the air in the air pocket in the car, that it would have taken 3-4 hours before that happened. He testified if he had been called, he could have had her out within 25 minutes.

Kopechne was not the only one to suffer at the hands of the ‘liberal lion of the Senate’. He had a very bad habit for drunkenness and attacking women:

One may find more loathsome behavior here.

If he had been anyone else, he would have been in jail, not being praised today. War on women, indeed…

Chappaquiddick? Obama Calls Ted Kennedy A “Bridge,” Biden Says “He Was An Anchor”…

Pro-tip for the White House’s speechwriters: Next time you write a speech about Ted Kennedy you should Google “Chappaquiddick” first.

Second killing of an anti-Islamist blogger over the last month.

Biden Fondly Remembers The Time Ted Kennedy Took Him To Meet Fellow Senators While They Were Naked…

Sounds horrifying.

Via Politico:

Vice President Joe Biden paid tribute to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy on Monday, recounting how the Massachusetts Democrat treated him “like a little brother” and became his tutor and guide when Biden arrived in the Senate.

That came with some embarrassing moments in the upper chamber’s locker room, the veep said.

Biden, speaking at the dedication of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston, mentioned how Kennedy would take him into the Senate gymnasium’s locker room to meet senators, and “like in a YMCA, the men walk around the shower and the stalls with nothing on.”

“And I remember going, ‘How are you?’” Biden described greeting longtime senators such as Sen. Jacob Javits, mimicking an averted gaze. “I swear to God.”

University Sanctions Pro-ISIS Club If They “Change The Name,” Will Allow Them To Pass Out ISIS Flags During Annual Campus Fair…

271EC2E200000578-3017455-image-a-29_1427692648744

Welcome to academia.

Via Daily Mail:

Administrators at a Catholic university in Florida agreed to help an honors student start a campus club that would send money and supplies to the ISIS terror army.

Hidden camera footage released Monday morning shows officials and faculty at Barry University advising a senior – identified only as ‘Laura’ – about the best way to secure funding for a club she called ‘Sympathetic Students in Support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.’

‘I want to start fundraising efforts on campus, and what I want to do is raise funds to send overseas,’ she told Derek Bley, the school’s Coordinator for Leadership Development and Student Organizations.

Bley offered to help her create the organization and agreed with her request to ‘pass out Islamic State flags and educate people’ at an annual student ‘Festival of Nations’ fair.

The school’s mission statement says ‘all members of our community’ must ‘accept social responsibility to foster peace and nonviolence.’

Yet Bley was enthusiastic about Laura’s terror-funding venture. ‘We’re not here to limit people and their clubs, he said. ‘If there a demand or a need, or an interest that students have to do this, we’re here to support that.’

‘If you’ve got … people who are interested, and this is something you want take and run with,’ he added. ‘we’re here to help you get that done.’

Conn Dem Gov. Bans State-Funded Travel To Indiana Over Religious Freedom Law… Seemingly Unaware Conn Passed The Same Law

malloy_P_20121217174258

Malloy probably should have checked to see if Connecticut has its own RFRA law before issuing his travel ban to Indiana.

Via TPM:

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) on Monday announced he plans to sign an executive order on state-funded travel in response to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) signing a controversial bill into law that could allow businesses to discriminate against gay people.

Malloy’s announcement is the latest move by a top elected official from another state in protest of Pence signing the law. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee (D) last week banned state-funded travel to Indiana last week as a statement against the law. It wasn’t immediately clear from Malloy’s tweets if the executive editor was exactly the same as Lee’s move, although it’s expected to be similar.

Pence has been receiving wide criticism for signing the law and both he and top Republican lawmakers said most recently that they planned to add a clarification to try and rebut that criticism. On Sunday, Pence was pressed about the law but he wouldn’t say whether it discriminates against gay people.

Breaking: Vehicle Tries To Ram Gate At Fort Meade At HQs Of NSA, Shots Fired…Update: Two Men Disguised As Women Were In SUV, 1 Killed, Other Injured; Guard Also Injured

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 9.50.26 AM

Fox is reporting a vehicle rammed the gate and that shooting was heard.

Via NBC:

Police are on the scene of an incident outside Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County.

From Chopper4, emergency workers could be seen caring for an injured, uniformed man who was loaded into an ambulance.

It’s not clear what connection that person has to the incident, if any. There are two vehicles with damage outside the gate, including a police SUV.

The National Security Agency is investigating the incident.

Fort Meade, a United States Army installation, is home to approximately 11,000 military personnel along with about 29,000 civilian employees, according the military installation’s website.

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 9.53.06 AM

Appears from the pictures above to have at least one fatality, there appears to be a body covered with a sheet near the door of the black SUV that rammed the gate. Two injured in addition.

Update:

Dressed as women who just happened to crash the gate and it’s a local incident? Can’t wait to hear the explanation for this!

Via NBC:

Gunfire erupted Monday morning at the gate of the National Security Agency’s facility at Fort Meade in Maryland when two men disguised as women in a stolen car tried to enter, sources said.

A guard intervened and shot at least one of the men in the Ford Escape. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun and some drugs.

The condition of the men in the car was not confirmed. The NSA is a conducting the investigation into the incident, but the FBI was also on the scene.

“The shooting scene is contained and we do not believe it is related to terrorism,” the FBI’s Baltimore office said in a statement. “We are working with the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland to determine if federal charges are warranted.”

It’s not clear why the men were trying to enter the facility, but one senior U.S. official called it a “local criminal matter.”

One bad guy shot, one captured and one guard also injured.

Wow! Joe Biden Tells American Jews They Can Only Rely On Israel To Protect Them, Not The U.S.

alg-biden-israel-jpg

Oddly enough, Biden hasn’t made any similar comments to Muslims in America.

JERUSALEM – An incredible admission by US Vice President Joe Biden has been revealed, in which he told Jewish leaders that should the American Jewish community be in danger, it has only Israel to rely on – and not America.

Journalist Jeffrey Goldberg reveals in the April issue of The Atlantic how at a Rosh Hashana event in Biden’s home last fall, the vice president told Jewish leaders and Jewish officials in US President Barack Obama’s administration how he met former Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young Senator.

“I’ll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant – a guy named (Yitzhak) Rabin – about the Six-Day War,” he recalled. “The end of the meeting, we get up and walk out, the doors are open, and…the press is taking photos. …She looked straight ahead and said, ‘Senator, don’t look so sad…Don’t worry. We Jews have a secret weapon.'”

Biden states he asked Meir what the weapon was, noting “I thought she was going to tell me something about a nuclear program” – an ironic comment given the US’s recent declassification of documents revealing Israel’s nuclear program in a breach of understandings with the Jewish state.

But according to Biden, “she looked straight ahead and she said, ‘We have no place else to go.'” Addressing his guests at
Rosh Hashana, Biden paused for effect and repeated, “we have no place else to go.”

“Folks, there is no place else to go, and you understand that in your bones,” Biden said. “You understand in your bones that no matter how hospitable, no matter how consequential, no matter how engaged, no matter how deeply involved you are in the United States…there’s only one guarantee.”

“There is really only one absolute guarantee, and that’s the state of Israel,” he stated.
