Still Got Lead In His Pencil

Admirable or pathetic, you decide;

Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.

Kessler quotes a supervisor informing a new agent: “You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in.”

Energizer, who is described as charming and friendly, sometimes brought cookies to the agents, according to the book excerpts.
One told Kessler: “It was a warm day, and she was wearing a low-cut tank top, and as she leaned over, her breasts were very exposed. They appeared to be very perky and very new and full … There was no doubt in my mind they were enhanced.”

I know, we should not make light of infidelity ( by all appearances this is a marriage of politically expediency, and the obvious ,”Can you blame him?” cries out for recognition), but being so European should not be encouraged.

Although I understand why they are doing it, being an older male going limp over time is just too gruesome to bare, the plethora of erectile dysfunction commercials that we get bombarded with on TV, aging gracefully and accepting all that goes with that is the farthest from anyone’s mind. When old guys can still take care of business (although this is premature, maybe he just likes to be spanked) there is hope for the rest of us. Sure, it’s all pharmacological, but a chubby is a chubby.

Kessler also reveals that Hillary is routinely rude to the agents who are sworn to take a bullet for her.
“Because she is so nasty to agents and hostile to law enforcement officers and military officers in general, agents consider being assigned to her detail a form of punishment,” Kessler wrote.

Here is a question for you, would you rather be on Hillary’s detail, or Michelle’s?

And how funny is it that the left’s favorite president in the last 50 years is a sexual predator and a rapist? No war on women there.

Still Crazy After All These Years

My post is about that crazy Uncle Ron Paul, but this morning I watched Obama’s tap dance in the Rose Garden, where he talked about accountability wrt the downed airline and mentioned the troubling news that the black boxes were absconded and hustled back to Russia. He wondered out loud what they had to hide. Naturally one has to snicker at any mention of accountablility, and as for hiding something, let’s see, 2 black boxes vs. “less than 20″ hard drives wiped clean, hiding something, indeed.

I know there were several Paul bots that frequented this site, I was never one of them. And although it is still early, Rahn Paul will no doubt make a run for the top job in 2016. One has to wonder (and pray) that this apple falls real far from the tree.

But the old guy escaped his rest home just long enough to chastise the media over their coverage on the downed airline;

Former Congressman Ron Paul defended the Russian government on Sunday and slammed Western leaders for spreading “propaganda” after a Malaysian Airlines plane was allegedly shot down by Kremlin-backed separatists in Ukraine.

“Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said,” the former presidential candidate wrote. “While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report.”

You knew somewhere in there he was going to fall back on the old tried and true and blame America;

One of those unreported things, Paul claimed in his weekly “Texas Straight Talk” column, was the United States’ own responsibility for destabilizing the region.

Full disclaimer, no, I did not read his dopey column, but the Ukrainian people clearly wanted Yanukovych out has subsequently issued arrest warrants against him for mass murder. I would tell Obama to pay attention and heed what happens to a leader that zigs when the folks want him to zag, but there are too many out there that like the status quo, like their free stuff, so he remains nonplussed.

Samantha Powers did a great job (I know, where did that come from?) the other day at the UN, encapsulating what we know so far and where the real blame should be placed. You can see it here.

I get a kick out of all the talk about this signalling the end of Putin, and how he will be made to pay. There will be nothing left at the crash site that will tie Russia or the separatists in on this. Europe (or the US for that matter) does not have the will to push this beyond the “moral outrage” stage. Putin is popular with the folks and has the natural resources to back up any bluster. I see nothing coming of this.

Even That’s Too High

Hollywood would have you believe that it’s closer to 50%, the goons on the LGBT payroll think that is a good starting point, but it turns out (kinda what we thought all along) that the rainbow kids are not as ubiquitous as we’be been told;

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.

The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.

The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”

The figures offered a slightly smaller assessment of the size of the gay, lesbian and bisexual population than other surveys, which have pegged the overall proportion at closer to 3.5 or 4 percent. In particular, the estimate for bisexuals was lower than in some other surveys.

In my best Hillary voice ,”What difference does it make?”. Increasing the numbers seemingly gives them a stronger voice, more clout, but considering the caterwauling that emanates from that side of the sexual isle, numbers are irrelevant.

Considering the stigma attached, yes, it still exists with all the baggage in tow, getting reliable numbers even today seems like a crap shoot. Regardless of anonymity, some would prefer not sharing sexual preferences, and some (I’m looking at you loony progressives) would skew the numbers and lie, just to advance their own social agenda. When a negative connotation is attached (how much TV do you watch- do I really want to prove I’m a coach potato, how many drinks in one sitting- wow, maybe I got a problem, do you eat junk food- just what I need, the food Nazi’s after me) for whatever reason, getting reliable data may be difficult.

The simplistic approach would be, it’s only sex, who cares? And for the majority of folks, they don’t, consenting adults and all that, the individual’s pursuit of happiness and all that, or ,”You can’t help who you love”, but there is an entire political movement attached, and that movement can be as ugly and abusive as need be. Some might consider it the natural snap back/ricochet affect of political moments, like Affirmative action, a response to years of discrimination-by resorting to more discrimination but on the other side.

Keep Him Away From Me

Keeping Bergdahl front and center in the news may seem counter productive (why rub our nose in it) but since this administration views his release (and the price paid for it) as a smashing success, much like bagging OBL, I suspect we will see no end to the Bergdahl Reunion Tour, I smell a WH beer summit in the offing. But is putting him back on active duty really a smart thing?

Six weeks after being released from five years in Taliban captivity, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to return to life as a regular Army soldier as early as Monday, Defense Department officials said late Sunday.

Sergeant Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio, and will assume a job at the Army North headquarters at the same base, Fort Sam Houston, the officials said.

He is also expected to meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, the officer who is investigating the circumstances of Sergeant Bergdahl’s disappearance from his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009.

Sergeant Bergdahl’s transfer from the therapy phase to a regular soldier’s job is part of his reintegration into Army life, officials said. He will live in barracks and have two other soldiers help him readjust.

Ya think, maybe, this new job of his might involve the handling of live weapons?

I think it is a terrible idea to put him in the general population among other soldiers, I would want to kick his ass.

Six weeks is plenty of time to interview him, interview all the pertinent personnel that were there, plenty of time to get a handle on what happened and to make a decision to either court marshal him and file desertions charges, or release him from military service. Either or as far as I’m concerned, if he did not desert, in which case he has suffered enough and warrants an early release, or he did, in which case his next stop should be a prison cell.

I know he deserves a presumption of innocence and should get a fair hearing, your typical soldier may not be as magnanimous. Given what facts I know now (probably incomplete, I admit) I would not want him anywhere near my platoon, keep him isolated and preferably off any military installation. Shit or get off the pot, but let’s put an end to this Bergdahl saga.

Res Ipsa Loquitur

A short story about a Vietnam vet, a busted up wheelchair, and a couple of store employees who get it.

In a world gone mad there still exists folks who listen to their conscience and regularly calibrate their moral compass. No blandishments or sugar coating required, the story speaks for itself.

The cynic in me hopes these employees don’t get canned. With stories all over the place of store employees getting fired over doing good, grabbing shoplifters and stopping actual crimes committed in the stores, some involving firearms, heroism is more times than not rewarded with a pink slip.

The second comment down has a man, a complete stranger, offering this vet a new wheelchair, no strings attached. Humanity surprises us sometimes, it shouldn’t, but compassion is alive and well, the real stuff outside the bastardized version the progressives peddle.
