    There once was a fellow named Chris
    Whose show was a hit and a miss
    Tried to take down Obama
    And then came his trauma
    ‘Cause his show’s now a big ol’ abyss.

    Really, LP, seeing that “McCain Institute” reference again, I really, really must go take a nap. Wore myself out laughin’.

    There once was a fellow named John
    Who always looked a little put upon
    He invited our Biden
    To come out of hidin’
    To speak at the Institute we spit upon.

    (See? I need that nap!)

    So who’s complaining about this black President trip to Africa, when we didn’t hear a dam thing said about the only Presidents and their travels. This always happen when it comes to POTUS or FLOTUS. And I am so dam fed up with it.

    So sad for The Colbert’s Family. Their 92 yrs old Mom has just passed on. RIP. Deepest sympathy to the family.

    In very unfortunate news for Colbert Nation and of course the Colbert family, Lorna Elizabeth Tuck Colbert has died at the age of 92. She was the mother of Stephen Colbert, former congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch and nine other children.

    She had 11 children. Stephen Colbert was her last Child. She lost her husband and 2 sons in a plane crash in the 1970s.

    Lawmaker: Obama’s Africa trip would fund 1,350 weeks of White House tours
    Pete Kasperowicz – 06/14/13 04:02 PM ET
    Rep. George Holdin said the “excessive” travel spending could be used to pay for the tours canceled under sequestration.…

    Phuck off! 🙂

      How many tours would be paid for if the 56 cleared Gitmo prisoners were released to Yemen Rep Holdin?

      Obots.

      Please don’t hold your breath waiting for the “uppity” narrative to change. (I’m worried about your health and well-being.)

      Every day on Twitter I see another example of how the media’s cards are stacked against our President. It is despicable and sickening, and they are apparently accountable to no one.

      I consider this a vile tweet, involving two WaPo reporters and another Ivy Leaguer.

        Sorry, forgot to say that this was RT’d by @ZekeJMiller, now a “political” reporter at TIME magazine, whose tweets make it very apparent that he wishes GWBush were back in office.

        Today Show went big on the Obama Africa trip also—–in some segment titled what everyone is buzzing about—or something. It was so transparent that they were trying to stir public outrage, listing every single expense, saying it was going to cost 60-100 million, that Clinton’s Africa trip only cost 40 million, no word on the Bush trip. Selective outrage again.

          The self-congratulatory nature of journalists giving themselves high-fives to deny the first African American President and his family ANY perks that go along with “the worst job in the world” and “the most stressful job in world” makes me sick.

          God, I wish Tim Russert were still around (5 year anniversary of his death yesterday).

          He wouldn’t let the coddled media (including the Today show) get away with this bs.

            Arapaho, I highly doubt that Tim Russert would be any different, but that’s just me. All I remember is that I never saw him challenging Gorge W. Bush on Iraq invasion or the lies about WMD.

      and how many whitehouse tours could we pay for if we no longer had to pay the Republicans in Congress for doing absolutely nothing of value…?

    A Response to Glenn Greenwald

    By Rick Perlstein

    ——————–

    So what are these “servers” the famous NSA slide refers to? The explanation that is most consistent with everything we’ve seen so far is that they are servers that exist for the purpose of requesting and transferring data. They probably have a user interface whereby the NSA submits a request, the company sees the request, the company handles it (and accesses their servers to do so, except in the presumably rare cases where they push back on the request), and the requested information goes back to the NSA. The NSA staffer never speaks directly to a human at the company, consistent with what Bart Gellman reported, but that has nothing to do with Greenwald’s misinterpretation of “direct collection,” which is what this is about.

    Greenwald himself agrees that the question hinges on the interpretation of the phrase “collection directly from the servers”:

    How did mainstream media get the NSA PRISM story so hopelessly wrong?

    By Ed Bott for The Ed Bott Report

    ———————————-

    Last week, The Guardian and The Washington Post got their hands on a big story about the National Security Agency and its alleged connection to a handful of giant tech companies.

    The bombshell stories in both publications carried the by-lines of experienced reporters. The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, a well-known political commentator who also holds a law degree, has been covering national security issues for nearly a decade, and the Post’s Barton Gellman is a Pulitzer Prize winner who has a distinguished record covering privacy and security issues.

    But neither publication assigned an independent expert to vet the claims of their source, 29-year-old Edward Snowden, who had until recently worked at the NSA as a contractor for Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden provided both publications with classified documents he had spirited out of the NSA. He also made claims that turn out to have been exaggerated.

    So sorry to hear about Colbert’s mom.

    Since he was the youngest of 11 children, he was alway’s “Mama’s baby,” especially after his father and two brothers were killed in a plane crash when he was about 10 years old.

    My favorite Colbert moment was almost exactly a year ago when Rep. John Lewis was a guest, and Colbert told Lewis he attended MLK’s “I Have a Dream Speech” in his mother’s womb.

    This nearly brought both of them to tears.

    Something Repugs should be required to repeat every day on arising. “The world is my country. All mankind are my Brethren, and to do good is my religion.” Thomas Paine. Not that the meaning would sink in or that they can even understand the words, let alone live by them. Read this on immoralminority.blogspot.com today.

    There once was a network of note
    That helped good guys to get out the vote

    Ari Melber hosting the Saturday edition of the MHPShow. So, uh….I won’t be watching. I still like Ari but he’s been a little intense on a few issues lately so I’ll pass.

      Wise decision, GB.

      Watched Joy Reid’s excellent subbing for Ed Schultz last weekend, but got really pissed at Ari when he basically tried to shout her down. That’s really inexcusable for a guest, and it’s my biggest pet peeve with men (female here).

      I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have tried the “raise your voice to drown out the host” trick if Ed had been sitting in her chair.

      Not a good week for emoprogs.

    May comfort and peace be with the Colbert family as they celebrate a wonderful life of this lovely soul, their mother.

    Thanks go out to Mayor Castro of San Antonia for the encouragement and respect that he made sure that this beautiful young man received after his first performance of the National Anthem at the game. I love the way the two coaches at the end went over and gave this beautiful young man respect and encouragement.

    I pray that this beautiful young man will go far and wide with his life and continue to reach for the stars and be reminded of this incident by being reminded that nothing is impossible if you work hard, study hard, and exercise your right as an American citizen in a country where fairness should always be a goal and opportunity for all Americans. I loved this young man for his strong attitude that nothing will stop him from being a beautiful soul. Others hatred cannot take his core beliefs from his precious being. (((((((( Lots of wonderful things to continue to come into your space, Sebastian De La Cruz!!!!)))))))))) So proud of what he reminded all of us to be: “true to your core, move with confidence, and do not play any attention to the haters.” HZ
