This photo placement is running along with a story in The Wire warning Florida beach-goers about flesh-eating bacteria found in the waters there. It’s Atlantic’s The Wire — not some right-leaning publication having some fun:
If this was done on purpose, Obama’s approval rating might be lower than we think.
The tweet’s even funnier:

Isn’t there a point when we can petition the State to have this maniac institutionalized?

Unconfirmed, unsubstantiated, and totally believable:
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.
This is according to Ronald Kessler in “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,” due Aug. 5 from Crown Forum.
The book, portions of which I’ve obtained, says none of the normal protocols is followed when Energizer arrives in her SUV, sometimes just minutes after Hillary has left the Westchester house.
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.
Kessler also reports that Hillary’s Secret Service detail informs Bill’s Secret Service detail when the former first lady is coming home, so Bill has time to get Energizer off the property and clean up any evidence.
But once, the warning came late. “The agents had to scramble to get Energizer out of there so there wasn’t some kind of big confrontation.”
They call her “Energizer” because when Bubba finds out she’s on the way over, he does this:
By the way, Bill Clinton’s Secret Service detail’s code name for Hillary is “Saltpeter.”
I’ll be surprised if any of the above story about Bill Clinton is true — it would be so unlike him.
Fauxcahontas (aka “Dances With Identity” aka “Elizabeth Warren) is such a hypocrite, but of course, she didn’t build that.
Warren cited her “11 Commandments of Progressivism” at the Netroots convention of loopy leftists in Detroit, the city destroyed by progressivism that progressives hope to salvage with more progressivism (good luck).
Here’s my favorite:
“We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”
How does lightning not strike this woman? If students are being “crushed by debt,” Elizabeth Warren is helping operate the hydraulic press:
Elizabeth Warren took home more than $700,000 in compensation from teaching and consulting fees from 2010 to 2011 http://t.co/zApEbJf4

Rather than call for overpaid profs’ and administrators to take salary cuts “for the children,” Warren has no problem at all demanding government subsidies for student loans. That way, people like her still get their small fortunes.
Warren also blasted Wall Street. The DSCC helped Warren get elected, and they accepted $40 million from Wall Street over the years. They would have accepted more, but, Wall Street is, you know, bad.

MSNBC strikes again. Or should I say, MSNBC is stricken. Either way, it couldn’t have happened to a bigger bunch of hacks.
From the Washington Free Beacon:
A supposed “witness” to the crash of a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball Thursday that it appeared to have been shot down by a “blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”
He then called her a “dumbass” when she didn’t seem to understand she was being punked.
The host failing to take notice of her own punking reminded me of this:
The Dems are hitting new lows on the border situation. Now, securing the border, enforcing the law and sending back those not going about entering the country legally is no better than turning away Jews seeking asylum during WWII.
I found three Democrats who have compared turning away “future Democrats” at the border to the Holocaust:
I’m sure there are, and will be, many more Dems using the comparison.
However, history will not be kind to them if they are aware of a mass slaughter going on somewhere in South America and they refuse to point out exactly where this “21st century holocaust” is taking place. But it’s not as if the Obama leg-humpers in the MSM are going to challenge them on it.

DC Democrats — cornering the market on shamelessness one incredible lie at a time:

This is like “the perfect storm” of lies.

Good question. And completely rhetorical, by the way.
Obama’s Iftar speech also contained zero lectures about gay rights. What a surprise.
The Obama administration saves the homophobia lectures and “war on women” rhetoric for speeches about Republican beliefs.
And as you know, you should never go full Wile E. Coyote:

That last one is a warehouse the UN uses to store aid to give to Palestinians. DOH!
I think Hamas strikes Hamas more than Israel does — and they blame Israel for those too.

Now that he’s just over two years from leaving the White House, finally a bit of honesty:
“It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website.
“I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the crowd. “I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just let her rip.
Telling the truth NOW? An interesting slip, but I still don’t believe it, and for good reason:
And I want to assure you, I’m really not that partisan of a guy.”
[...]in 2013, Obama called Republicans and his other opponents “deadbeats” for not agreeing to his big spending ways.
Then there was his 2013 accusation that Republicans were “kidnappers.”
It’s as if at some point Obama promised himself “if you like your bipartisanship, you can keep your bipartisanship” and was actually dumb enough to believe his own pledge.
