And here’s a quick segue… Fox News’ political Twitter feed needs to declare independence from hackers:
And there are more where those came from. What’s strange is that as of this morning those Tweets haven’t been taken down.
It looks as if Fox News lost access to the site on June 30th — at least that’s the last time a “serious” news item was posted, and then somebody hacked in after that. But it’s weird that Twitter hasn’t removed them. Maybe the Secret Service is investigating and didn’t want them taken down yet. Who knows. In any case, enjoy your well-deserved cavity search, Mr. Hacker!
All I know is that seeing the words “President Joe Biden” isn’t the best way to start a morning.
Oh well. At least this “hack” didn’t involve a picture of Anthony Weiner’s johnson.
Update: Fox News released a statement on the hacking.
It’s time for the Project Valour-IT fundraiser. I’m proud to represent Team Marine, and it was an honor to be asked to help out once again this year.
Instead of mirroring a post I wrote at Michelle’s place, just head over there for details on what Project Valour-IT is, and how you can help this great cause. The fundraising competition goes through July 14th, so I’ll have occasional updates. The overall goal is $100,000 — or $25,000 per team — but goals are made to be eclipsed.
Thanks for any help you’re able to provide the heroes who have sacrificed so much for our freedom!
[Obama] lost a magnetic presidential seal that was affixed to the side of his limousine as he wrapped up a fundraising visit to Philly on Thursday.
The seal flew off the side of the limo and whipped by motorists in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 76, where it was presumed lost . . . until shortly before noon yesterday.
That’s when a veteran Philadelphia police officer found the seal on the side of the highway, near the Montgomery Avenue exit, while he was assisting the driver of a disabled vehicle, said Cynthia Wofford, the special agent in charge of the U.S. Secret Service Philadelphia field office.
Does it seem odd that they spent a million bucks to construct that limo but the presidential seal is just stuck on magnetically like it’s a pizza delivery car?
This past Thursday isn’t the first time the presidential seal has tried to escape Obama:
From the “things won’t read about at Media Matters” file:
President Obama raised more than $1.2 million at two campaign fundraisers here Thursday night, the last events of his money-raising blitz in this early stage of the 2012 campaign.
Campaign officials said about 800 people, each giving at least $100, attended the first event, at a Hyatt hotel. Later in the evening, Comcast’s executive vice president, David L. Cohen, hosted about 120 people in his home for a dinner, each of the attendees giving at least $10,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign.
This makes me wish I had Comcast just so I could call and cancel it.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled diatribe about how Fox News executives are the only ones in the media with a political agenda.
Al Gore will be so excited over this story that he’ll probably release his second chakra all over his private jet:
WASHINGTON – A federal judge on Thursday backed a finding by government scientists that global warming is threatening the survival of the polar bear.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that a May 2008 decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to place the bear on the endangered species list as threatened because of melting sea ice was rational given the facts and best available science.
Read the whole article. It sounds as if the judge said he had to rule in favor of the “government scientists” (note to self: add that to the oxymoron list) because nobody could prove that global warming isn’t threatening the survival of polar bears. Well, we can’t prove that space aliens and double cheeseburgers aren’t threatening their survival either, so with this kind of logic on the bench the global warmists still have hope, no matter how much the scam is otherwise exposed.
