Hillary Clinton has been doing her best to put distance between herself and Barack Hussein Obama's failures. Now, she distancing herself from one of her own.
When Americans say that they favor immigration reform, they mean deportation.
Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the primary focus of any new immigration legislation passed by Congress should be to send the young illegal immigrants back home as quickly as possible. Just 27% say it should focus instead on making it easier for these illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
Boning little boys for Allah.
Western forces fighting in southern Afghanistan had a problem. Too often, soldiers on patrol passed an older man walking hand-in-hand with a pretty young boy. Their behavior suggested he was not the boy's father. Then, British soldiers found that young Afghan men were actually trying to "touch and fondle them," military investigator AnnaMaria Cardinalli told me. "The soldiers didn't understand."
All of this was so disconcerting that the Defense Department hired Cardinalli, a social scientist, to examine this mystery. Her report, "Pashtun Sexuality," startled not even one Afghan. But Western forces were shocked - and repulsed.
For centuries, Afghan men have taken boys, roughly 9 to 15 years old, as lovers. Some research suggests that half the Pashtun tribal members in Kandahar and other southern towns are bacha baz, the term for an older man with a boy lover. Literally it means "boy player." The men like to boast about it.
The humor of Bill Clinton.
Clinton—“always eager to please”— told his embarrassed audience a joke that began: “These two old Jews are walking down the street.”
“As the joke begins, everyone around the table looks dubious,” Halper writes. “Where is he going with this? Surely the former president of the United States is not about to tell an anti-Semitic story in front of people he hardly knows. This, of course, is exactly what he does, according to a number of people present.”
Briefly, the joke has the two Jewish codgers walking by a Catholic church, where a sign out front offers $100 to converts. One of the Jews, named Abe, agrees to convert and give half the proceeds to his friend. Abe meets with the priests, learns the traditions of the church, is declared a Catholic, and collects his reward.
“Hey! Look at the new Catholic here,” Abe’s friend says. “You got my money?”
To which Abe retorts: “You fucking Jews. It’s all about the money, isn’t it.”
Halper writes: “As the former president laughs, the others offer weak smiles. No one wants to offend him.”
Paul Pierce is taking his talents to Landover, MD.
Pierce, 36, the sweet-shooting small forward known as the Truth, was one of the few Nets players to live up to expectations.But in the early hours Sunday, Pierce walked away from a Nets team in disarray, agreeing to terms on a two-year, $11 million contract with the Washington Wizards, according to a person briefed on the negotiations.While the deal had not been announced officially, Pierce all but confirmed it on Twitter. Making a reference to John Wall, Washington’s All-Star point guard, Pierce wrote, “Obama, J Wall here I come.”
I find it instructive that Obama's most devoted constituency seeks the destruction of everything America stands for.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.
According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.
