The Clinton Foundation slush fund/family ATM must not be enough to cover all 2016 campaign expenses, because Hillary Clinton’s campaign is kicking the merchandising into high gear.
I’m guessing there are about a half million of these bad boys sitting in a truck in Riyadh:

Of course, in Saudi Arabia they crossed out “in the White House” and replaced it with “not behind the wheel.”
But wait, there’s also the pantsuit t-shirt for $30 (foreign donors add an additional $100,000 to cover shipping, handling and server scrub & disposal):

Wear one of Hillary’s pantsuit tees and make your friends more confused than Bill the time he accidentally woke up in bed with his own wife.
Laugh if you will but it looks fabulous on George Stephanopoulos.
The Associated Press actually managed to report that the Affordable Care Act isn’t “affordable” and doesn’t even have much “care” without calling out the Dems who voted for it who now want to lead the charge to “fix” the law (read: throw a ton more money at it).
Rep. McDermott, who voted to pass the ACA, even admits that it’s deceptive:
After paying premiums, many low- and middle-income patients still face high costs when trying to use their coverage. There’s growing concern that the value of a health insurance card is being eaten away by rising deductibles, the amount of actual medical costs that patients pay each year before coverage kicks in.
“I think it’s going to be the next big problem,” said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care.
“We’ve got some 17 million more people covered … but they can’t access the care they seem to be entitled to,” McDermott said. “It costs too much to use the care. That’s the deceptive part about it.”
Since virtually all U.S. residents are now required to have health insurance by President Barack Obama’s health care law, McDermott said Democrats have a responsibility to make sure coverage translates to meaningful benefits.
Short version: The Obamacare law doesn’t do any of what it was ostensibly supposed to do, so now we’ll have to throw another trillion dollars at it to make the law “work.” And by all means, let’s allow those who deceived us once to spend billions more to deceive us again (those paying attention weren’t deceived the first time but were unfortunately outnumbered by morons).
If this isn’t the best argument for full repeal, nothing is. Too bad the Associated Press reported it all with a straight face without pointing out the Jupiter-sized irony of it all.

Easy question for Iowa Dems: Name any Hillary Clinton accomplishments as secretary of state:
I’d widen the challenge and ask people what Hillary Clinton has accomplished at all. And “married Bill,” “kicked ass at cattle futures” and “helped set up a money laundering operation disguised as a charity” don’t count.
I do have one accomplishment of Hillary’s: She’s promised to “topple the rich” and as SoS she proved she’s more than capable of doing so, because she practiced on herself:
This is both maddening and sad considering almost 1,300 Americans died securing Anbar province:

Quite a parade for the “JV team.”
Obama last September: “We will degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.” Replace “ISIL” with “all gains the U.S. and its allies made in Iraq since 2003.”
Meanwhile, back in DC…
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.

Hashtag counter-strike coming soon!
Responding to the above threat, Obama’s giving Coast Guard graduates a lecture about climate change. Obama’s speech to Coast Guard grads didn’t contain much mention of guarding the coast.
The “progressive” idea of “right to life” is indeed selective and twisted.

I’m against the death penalty in principle & in practice. That #Tsarnaev committed horrid, inhuman acts does not justify inhumane execution.

Something to behold, isn’t it? The only people in Progressive-Land who don’t deserve protections from being deprived of life are the people we know are innocent of any crimes 100 percent of the time.
Great comment on a post over at Michelle’s:
If you want to have some fun…
Run your #BlackLivesMatter poster down by your local abortion clinic.
Hopefully that catches on.
At the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service outside the U.S. Capitol today, President Obama said that America must “heal the rift” between police and the communities they serve.
Heal the rift?
Did President Barack “The cops acted stupidly” Obama really say that?
One thing’s for sure: If that “rift” is going to be smoothed over, the president who meets almost weekly with race agitator Al Sharpton and who oversees a Justice Department that never met a police department that wasn’t loaded with racists and isn’t afraid to say it publicly is not the person to lead the charge.
Hillary Clinton isn’t answering questions for reporters, but she certainly is being accommodating to late-term abortion zealots (because she is one):
— The Hill (@thehill) May 14, 2015
The Hillary Clinton campaign jabbed at House Republicans after they passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks on Wednesday.
“Politicians should not interfere with personal medical decisions, which should be left to a woman, her family and her faith, in consultation with her doctor or health care provider,” Clinton’s senior policy adviser Maya Harris said in a statement.
The irony of course is that Hillary will soon talk about how it’s the Republicans who hate children.
The MSM’s avoiding a headline that should be used for this story: “New grandmother reiterates support for killing babies.”
The Obamacare “train wreck” has turned into a ship wreck. Hawaii’s federal exchange sinking is just the latest example:

I want to see itemized expense listings for where that money went, because there are most likely people getting incredibly wealthy off this sham.
Speaking of shams… this is obligatory:
Obviously Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin doesn’t think Ted Cruz is an “authentic” Hispanic. Check out this embarrassment:
Amazing that Halperin didn’t ask Cruz where his Conga drum was, because this is clearly what Halperin was hoping to see during the interview:
The Dems have a fake Indian that might get into the race but Cruz is the one who will face most of the “authenticity” scrutiny from many tools in the MSM.
It’s looking more like the attempt at mass murder in Garland, Texas that left two would-be jihadists dead over the weekend had ISIS fingerprints on it:

But even still…
The elephant in the room is that ISIS has tentacles in the U.S. and yet media focus is on "threat" from Geller. https://t.co/HzN24aW4Dz
— Doug Powers (@ThePowersThatBe) May 6, 2015
It seems like this evidence that ISIS’ reach now extends to the U.S. would be the big story, but a large segment of the press would rather blame radical Islam’s critics. Sticking their heads up their asses is easier than facing reality.
We’ll see how the MSM feels when the self-proclaimed “judge, jury and executioner” of speech is parked outside their doors — after the media has surrendered to them while blaming right-wing critics of Islamic extremism, of course.
In a statement, ISIS took “credit” for the Garland, Texas attempted attack that was thwarted, and said the terrorist group has dozens of “soldiers” in 15 states ready to carry out attacks.
On the other hand, the White House’s Josh Earnest called what happened in Garland a “lone wolf” attack.
So **who are you going to believe?

Update II: If “journalism” were hockey, the AP would be serving a 10-minute major in the penalty box for this pathetic spin:
