Feds end probe of ‘America’s toughest sheriff’ Joe Arpaio; no charges
Y’all catch that?? NO CHARGES!! After wasting three years going after Sheriff Arpaio, the administration got nuthin’ and quit.
The announcement on Friday marked the end of an investigation that began in November 2010 at the behest of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to examine alleged financial improprieties by the county sheriff and his deputies.
A federal criminal inquiry into several of those matters was concluded last summer with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona declining to initiate criminal charges.
But hey, not to worry. The administration is still going to investigate those sneaky civil rights abuses the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has been flagrantly tossing about like salad. What I found interesting is the fact that the US Asst. District Attorney, Ann Birmingham Scheel, would not elaborate but only state the feds were dropping the investigation, telling County Attorney Bill Montgomery that the feds would “not to pursue state criminal charges related to the investigation.” The link above has been updated to remove that quote, but the original can be found here.
I’m still trying to see how being provided with pink underwear is an infringement of a civil right, but I don’t put anything past this administration.
I don’t know who the wiseguy is, but someone gave me a Newsweek subscription for Christmas.
And when I find out who it was, they will pay.
In the meantime, I do have fun with it. Some of the articles are too hilarious and I find myself not finishing much of it, except the letters section. I find it amazing how the editorial department picks them. And by “amazing”, I mean “totally obvious”. And their covers are no exception! But this week’s cover has a few people a bit aghast.
ZOMG!!!! Ok, it’s by Niall Ferguson, who isn’t a liberal, but he is a RINO. But this is NEWSWEEK we are talking about. They never, EVER, say anything derogatory about Obama. Witness:
And even this:
That last one made me laugh. A lot. The caption was pure gold. Seems to me that even Newsweek is starting to face the music.
I know that y’all despise even looking at the Prez’ visage, but think of it this way: this is the worst this week will ever get
News breaking today that Governor Mitt Romney has chosen Representative Paul Ryan as his running mate!!
Of course, the attacks have already begun. Surprisingly, most of them center around Ryan being a ZOMG!!! white guy. Funny, it never bothered the liberals to have a white running mate before. Or did I miss Biden admitting he’s Hispanic??
No matter. Seems to me, Romney is learning from the mistakes of his 2008 predecessor. And y’all know that the debate between Ryan and Biden will be epic!!! That alone just gave me a tingle up my leg
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Feel free to discuss in the comments.
As we fondly recall, Keefy Olbermoron
was fired announced his his departure from PMSNBC in late January. It was a momentous occasion, since his show, Countdown with Keith Olberman, was the top-rated show at the network, and according to *ahem* news sources, it was PMSNBC who had chosen to end his contract with the network. Whatever… all I know is that Keefy screwed up and had become a sacrificial jackass lamb. Now he’s *ahem* the chief news officer of the Current TV network and the host of Current TV’s weeknight political commentary of the same name as his last gig. Creativity is not the man’s forte.
Anyway, as we all know, our friend Radical Redneck lives in the mad environs of New York. Yes, pity him, but not too much. Due to his proximity,
he Lizard was able to snag pics of Olbie’s Current (heh!) office, while on a visit. It must have been so sad to leave an office here:
Yep, 30 Rock, where the bitching du jour was over a glass door to his office. Now, the poor sap has to deal with this as his office:
Yep, a trailer. I can’t make this stuff up.
I bet he wishes he still had that glass door at 30 Rock.

There is NOTHING I can add to this. Just enjoy while bathing in the sweet irony:

Just when you think the journolistic intelligensia can’t be more ridiculous, they prove us dead wrong:
So enthused about promoting the far-left protests, ABC anchor Diane Sawyer on Monday night’s World News championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming that “as of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Excuse me?? A thousand countries?? What planet is she talking about?? Because last I checked, there were less than 200 countries on her precious Gaia. I’m no genius, but even I know geography. She could be forgiven* for saying a thousand cities in the US, but even then that would mean at least 20 per state. Unless there are 57 states, then it would be under 18 per state.
Newsflash, Ms. Sawyer: the rest of the world couldn’t give a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut about these protesters. They only care about our country imploding from division, something which your ilk is only happy to foment along. I don’t know if it was the shiraz talking, but do us all a favor and kindly STFU.

*No, she wouldn’t be forgiven for saying an obvious lie like that. I was being kind.
After yesterday’s debacle of a conference, you would think that the Prez would stop digging. First he flip-flops, then he tells us we are too stupid to understand the debt crisis:
But a crisis is nothing without the Eternal Boogeyman:
President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.
And yet, nowhere in that article is any mention of the simple fact that Social Security and Medicare are actually protected from default!! There is no way that these checks wouldn’t be sent out. However, he does go on:
Mr. Obama told Pelley “this is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.”
Those check to the military and reitrees?? Oh yeah….those are fair game to this administration. And do you know why? Because the administration is trying to head off a PR maelstrom of epic proportions:
Short story, all of the important functions of government, i.e national security, the military, air traffic control, border security, Social Security payments, etc., will continue to function. The parts that have to shut down…well, lets just say they are candidates for permanent cuts.
But what happens when you force the military to work with no pay? You get low morale, you get desperate housewives and husbands, you get people screaming to their congressmen to give them their hard-earned money. And it is hard-earned. And those people screaming will get far more attention from congressmen than welfare dependents. And that is what this administration is counting on.
What this administration forgets is we know when we are being used as gambits. And we will remember.

I’ve watched a couple of this guy’s videos and I really like the way he makes his points.
Well, I had a busy Saturday, and did not get to watch the Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahomo Sooners game. I was a bit upset, but after a few seconds I was fine. As I finally went to bed, I realized I had totally forgotten about the so-called One Nation Rally that was held on Saturday at the National Mall in response to Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally held on August 28th. Thanks to Gateway Pundit, we have some Sunday funnies!!
This is a overhead view of Glenn Beck’s rally on 8/28:
Now here is the same overhead view of the liberal whinefest One Nation rally yesterday:
Not even the free rides, free lunches and intimidation coercion union camaderie were able to fill the Mall. But hey, don’t let that stop the mainstream mediots from reporting what an awesome crowd the liberals had:
