    Something In The Gatorade Perhaps?

    Vice President Biden, speaking to a Democratic women’s forum, had an awkward moment Friday as he praised former Sen. Bob Packwood -- who was forced out of Congress over sexual harassment claims.

    The vice president invoked the former Republican senator while addressing the Democratic National Committee's women's leadership forum.

    The speech was largely devoted to highlighting the need to fight domestic violence against young women. But he also launched into an argument about how Republicans have changed since he was in the Senate, as he made his case for why Democrats need to hold their ground in the midterms.

    He cited past GOP efforts to expand voter registration legislation, mentioning the late Maryland Sen. Charles "Mac" Mathias and Packwood.

    “It’s Republicans that were involved, guys like Mac Mathias and Packwood and so many others. It wasn’t Democrats involved,” Biden said. “So I’m not joking, this is not your father’s Republican Party or your mother’s Republican Party.”

    Problem is, Packwood was forced to resign from the Senate in 1995 after several women accused him of making unwanted or uninvited sexual advances.

    Asked about the reference, Biden’s office told Fox News: “Throughout his entire career, the vice president has been a leading voice in the fight to stop violence against women.”

    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest also pointed to Biden’s record on women’s issues when asked about the remarks.

    It’s been a rocky week for Biden, who in a speech earlier this week used the term “Shylocks,” which is considered by some to be an offensive term for Jews. Biden later voiced regret for the remarks. He also described Asia as “the Orient.”

    Biden used the bulk of his remarks on Friday to tackle domestic violence. He said the administration would be unrelenting "to make it clear that it is cowardly not to step up."

    "There is an absolute obligation, a moral obligation, to step up and intervene and say something," Biden said.

    Coffin lid is jammed.

  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s longstanding claims that he had nothing to do with the controversial closure of bridge lanes a year ago appear to have been buoyed by a new report saying no evidence of a Christie connection has turned up.

    NBC affiliate Channel 4 in New York quoted unnamed federal officials saying that after nine months of a federal investigation, they have found no evidence the Republican governor had any knowledge of, or directed, the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September of last year.

    Christie, addressing the report on his “Ask the Governor” show on NJ 101.5 FM, said he wasn’t surprised by the report, because as he has said before, he had nothing to do with the closures, no matter what his political rivals say.

    “Obviously we will wait to hear what whatever the authorities have to say, but this report comes as no shock to me,” said Christie, who is still thought to be mulling a 2016 presidential run.

    Christie went on to say an internal report released last year exonerating the governor was “pretty much excoriated at the time” as being a whitewash -- but now “appears to be true.”

    Justice Department officials would not confirm the latest report when reached by Fox News.

    PHOENIX -- Police say Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife after she refused his sexual advances, and broke her nose.

    The details surfaced Thursday in a law enforcement report a day after Dwyer was arrested on aggravated assault charges and deactivated from all team activities. He spent a night in jail and was released early Thursday.

    CBS affiliate KPHO-TV reports that Dwyer was released about 5 a.m. Thursday morning on $25,000 bond. He mumbled something to reporters, and when asked if he would play football again, he said, "I will." He then got into a taxi and was driven away.


    NFL's struggle to "get it right": Another player faces domestic abuse charges
    The altercation occurred on July 21 at their Phoenix residence. The next day, another dispute between the couple turned violent when Dwyer punched his wife in the face and struck his 17-month-old son in the stomach with a shoe, according to the report. The son wasn't injured.

    In a police interview, Dwyer denied committing an assault, though he acknowledged that he punched walls in his home, threw a phone and that his wife bit his lip during the disputes.

    I'm Probably The First To Say This

    So Obama can't be a Muslim because he ordered to bombing of Muslims? Isn't that just the point, Muslims been killing each other from day one so that don't mean he's not. Of course he can be a Muslim, though I doubt he is. As a self anointed expert 'Marxist' (what a joke you think it's something to drag about), Obama will be happy to learn he's not! On this I agree he's not, he's clearly a 'socialist' without a doubt. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows what a failure 'socialism' has been, and is today.

    Word is being floated out by the Administration that to arm and train rebels in Syria will cost at the least $100,000 per person!!!! Even some Democrats already are suffering shell shock at such an off the wall cost with questionable results. We train them, then they turn on us, without a doubt!!

  • The White House acknowledged Wednesday that President Obama would consider putting U.S. troops in "forward-deployed positions" to advise Iraqi forces in the fight against the Islamic State -- even while insisting U.S. troops would not be sent back into a "combat role" in Iraq.

    Obama and his top advisers appeared to be threading a needle as they carefully clarified how exactly U.S. troops might be used, a day after Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey opened the door to approving "U.S. military ground forces."

    The White House continued to insist Wednesday that a "combat" role has in fact been ruled out, and that U.S. troops will not be engaging the Islamic State on the ground.

    Speaking at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, after visiting U.S. Central Command, Obama told troops: "I will not commit you and the rest of our Armed Forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq."

    He vowed that the U.S. forces currently deployed to Iraq to advise Iraqi forces "will not have a combat mission." Instead, he said, they will continue to support Iraqi forces on the ground, through a combination of U.S. air power, training assistance and other means.

    But shortly afterward, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest clarified that Dempsey was talking about the possible need to put U.S. troops already in Iraq into "forward-deployed positions with Iraqi troops."

    Earnest said that step has not yet been necessary, but if Dempsey asks to "forward deploy" American advisers, "the president said he would consider it on a case-by-case basis."

    He said, in that scenario, U.S. troops "would be providing tactical advice to Iraqi security forces" or be in position to call in airstrikes.

    "They would not have a combat role. They would not be personally or directly engaging the enemy," Earnest stressed. (Of course not, at least for today)!! Tomorrow a new day, more confusion.

    FBI Director James Comey said in written testimony to Congress Wednesday that Americans within reach of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL) may be at risk of being kidnapped.
    "We are deeply concerned about the safety and security of American citizens worldwide," Comey said in his written testimony ahead of a hearing in front of the House Homeland Security Committee.

    "ISIL (better know by the world as ISIS), and other foreign terrorist organizations may continue to try to capture American hostages in an attempt to force the U.S. government and people into making concessions that would only strengthen ISIL and further its terrorist operations."

    Obama on those who killed James Foley: "America does not forget" (on his way to golf course).

    Over the summer, ISIS beheaded two kidnapped American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, after the U.S. began conducting airstrikes against the group to protect American assets in the region and help deliver humanitarian aid to a group of trapped religious minorities that ISIS was threatening to kill.

    The curtain has come down on Climate Change: The Musical and reviews of the taxpayer-funded play about global warming are downright icy.

    The play, which is actually entitled "The Great Immensity," and was produced by Brooklyn-based theater company The Civilians, Inc. with a $700,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, ended its run early amid a storm of criticism from reviewers and lawmakers alike. It opened a year late, reached just five percent of its anticipated audience and likely fell short of its ambitious goal of informing a new generation about the perceived dangers of man-caused climate change.

    Plus, it apparently wasn't very good.

    “Despite fine performances, the musical mystery tour is an uneasy mix of fact and credulity-stretching fiction. It’s neither flora nor fauna,” New York Daily News reviewer Joe Dziemianowicz wrote in a review at the time. “[The] songs — whether about a doomed passenger pigeon or storm-wrecked towns — feel shoehorned in and not, pardon the pun, organic.”

    The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons. But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal. It was envisioned as a chance to create "an experience that would be part investigative journalism and part inventive theater,” help the public "better appreciate how science studies the Earth’s biosphere” and increase “public awareness, knowledge and engagement with science-related societal issues.”

    It's all a bad joke until the rest of the world gets on board. Until then, we are just wasting jobs, businesses, money. We are shooting ourselves in the foot, while everyone else takes advantage of us and goes laughing to the bank.

    Covert operatives had long warned that Bin Laden's network was planning attacks on American interests. President Bush received 40 highly classified intelligence briefings from the time he entered the Oval Office up to the 9/11 attacks. A reiterated theme warned UBL was seeking targets outside the United States.

    Yet George W. Bush received a report, less than five weeks prior to September 11th, that specifically warned UBL was planning to attack Americans at home.

    Nothing was ever definitive as to when, what, how! So it was no small surprise that UBL would want to attack the U S, other than to Bill Clinton's so called warning that he did. Hardly earth shaking news to anyone.

    The draw down of U S troops in Iraq was well in place in the Bush administration. So he gets no credit for that, other than taking victory down the road to defeat. Health insurance, Obama had little to nothing to do in forming the so called plan. He totally left it up to others to botch it up and lie to the public to get it passed. As for raid that killed Bin Laden, it was known to the administration well over six months in advance the location of Bin Laden and took him that long to just say okay! Hardly something one would brag about if they possessed an ounce of intelligence. At least it was more than Bill Clinton did when he had several chances and took a pass. Saved the auto industry?? The plan to help was started by the Bust administration. As for the weak economy we enjoy, the Federal Reserve gets 100% of the credit for passing out free money.

    The U.S. military's top officer said Wednesday that almost half of Iraq's army is incapable of working against the Islamic State militant group, while the other half needs to be rebuilt with the help of U.S. advisers and military equipment.

    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey made the remarks to reporters while traveling to Paris to meet with his French counterpart to discuss the situation in Iraq and Syria. The general said that U.S. assessors who had spent the summer observing Iraq's security forces concluded that 26 of the army's 50 brigades would be capable of confronting the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. Dempsey described those brigades as well-led, capable, and endowed with a nationalist instinct, as opposed to a sectarian instinct.

    However, Dempsey said that the other 24 brigades were too heavily populated with #$%$s to be part of a credible force against the Sunni ISIS.

    Sectarianism has been a major problem for the Iraqi security forces for years and is in part a reflection of resentments that built up during the decades of rule under Saddam Hussein, who repressed the majority #$%$ population, and the unleashing of reprisals against Sunnis after U.S. forces toppled him in April 2003. Sunni resistance led to the relatively brief rise of an extremist group called Al Qaeda in Iraq, led by the late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. That group withered but re-emerged as the Islamic State organization, which capitalized on Sunni disenchantment with the #$%$ government in Baghdad.

    On Tuesday, Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he would consider recommending the return of ground forces to Iraq if an international coalition sought by the Obama administration proves ineffective.

    It should been obvious years ago, Sunni & #$%$'s will never work together even for a common cause. They will be killing each other until the end of time. Even terrorist are killing each other! It's a never ending story..

    Here's one-
    The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission, was set up on November 27, 2002, "to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks", including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks.

    The commission was also mandated to provide recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.

    Chaired by former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean, the commission consisted of five Democrats and five Republicans. The commission was created by Congressional legislation, with the bill signed into law by President George W. Bush.

    The commission's final report was lengthy and based on extensive interviews and testimony. Its primary conclusion was that the failures of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation permitted the terrorist attacks to occur and that had these agencies acted more wisely and more aggressively, the attacks could potentially have been prevented.

    Covert operatives had long warned that Bin Laden's network was planning attacks on American interests. President Bush received 40 highly classified intelligence briefings from the time he entered the Oval Office up to the 9/11 attacks. A reiterated theme warned UBL was seeking targets outside the United States.

    Yet George W. Bush received a report, less than five weeks prior to September 11th, that specifically warned UBL was planning to attack Americans at home.

    No solid information on what, when, how such an attack would accure, much less outlined hijacked airliners flying into the trade center. Considering Bush had only been in office less than 8 months and Clinton had 8 years, inter-agency information sharing was stopped by the Clinton administration early on. Everyday intelligence gets many threats to the home land from all over the world.
