Hillary Gets The Probe

And I hope the finger that probes her is wearing a lineman's glove.
The FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unsecured e-mail account is not just a fact-finding venture — it’s a criminal probe, sources told The Post on Wednesday.

The feds are investigating to what extent Clinton relied on her home server and other private devices to send and store classified documents, according to a federal source with knowledge of the inquiry.

“It’s definitely a criminal probe,” said the source. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.

Trump Trumps

Don't start a pissing match with a guy who owns twenty thousand urinals.

From the Blaze:
Gawker Published Donald Trump’s Number to Annoy Him — the Next Day, the GOP Candidate Made Sure Their Plan Backfired

A day after Gawker published his personal cellphone number, Donald Trump pulled out a trick of his own to get even.
The billionaire businessman and 2016 Republican presidential candidate tweeted out the number Tuesday to encourage his more than 3 million social media followers to give him a call.
He changed his personal cell phone greeting into a campaign message. Now everyone calling him gets a greeting from the Donald campaigning for himself.


After an all night binge on beer, pizza and peyote, an Indonesian charity decided to give their "world peace" award to North Korea's Psychopath-in-Chief Kim Jong-un.
Sukarno Education Foundation insists claims of human rights abuse in North Korea are "Western propaganda"

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is no stranger to dubious accolades and has already been crowned Supreme Military Commander, National Defence Chairman and First Secretary of the Worker's Party.

This week, it emerged that Mr Kim is to receive yet another prestigious title - though for once it has not been bestowed by the North Korean state.
All members of the North Korean World Peace Award Committee were executed last month in a sudden outbreak of western propaganda.
Instead he is in line for an international award extolling his "peace, justice and humanity" thanks to an Indonesian charity.

It is the second unusual award to be bestowed upon the North Korean leader, who was crowned TIME magazine's Person of the Year in 2012 after the public vote was hijacked by internet pranksters.

They Broke It, We Bought It

Retired Army General says the Army is busted:
The Obama administration just announced a 40,000 reduction in the Army’s ranks. But the numbers don’t begin to tell the tale. Soldiers stay in the Army because they love to go into the field and train; Defense Secretary Ash Carter recently said that the Army will not have enough money for most soldiers to train above the squad level this year. Soldiers need to fight with new weapons; in the past four years, the Army has canceled 20 major programs, postponed 125 and restructured 124. The Army will not replace its Reagan-era tanks, infantry carriers, artillery and aircraft for at least a generation. Soldiers stay in the ranks because they serve in a unit ready for combat; fewer than a third of the Army’s combat brigades are combat-ready.

And this initial 40,000-soldier reduction is just a start. Most estimates from Congress anticipate that without lifting the budget sequestration that is driving this across-the-board decline, another 40,000 troops will be gone in about two years.

But it’s soldiers who tell the story. After 13 years of war, young leaders are voting with their feet again. As sergeants and young officers depart, the institution is breaking for a third time in my lifetime. The personal tragedies that attended the collapse of a soldier’s spirit in past wars are with us again. Suicide, family abuse, alcohol and drug abuse are becoming increasingly more common.

My E6 daughter posted this on her FB page.

 I'd say the chances of her re-enlisting are slim and none at this time. She's a good soldier, but she's had just about enough.

Now There's An Idea

Unfortunately our politicians are more interested in drumming up popular outrage over relatively minor offenses than they are in rooting out the deep cancers of political corruption and malfeasance that are tearing this county apart.

I could care less if that stupid dentist tied Cecile's bloody pelt around his naked butt and danced   down Pennsylvania Ave. in a lion skin tutu.

Screw the lion. It's nothing but a distraction. There's other, bigger game afoot.

What we need to do is hang a few of these mayors who think they can shelter criminals who waltz across our borders without so much as a by-your-leave without fear of retribution.

From Breitbart:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, is calling on mayors of sanctuary cities to be arrested as accomplices to the crimes illegal aliens receiving special treatment in their cities commit.

“Absolutely, I would hold them as an accomplice,” Jindal said on Boston Herald Radio on Monday morning, as reported by BuzzFeed, Jindal said of mayors of sanctuary cities. “Make them criminally culpable. I’d also make them civilly liable so that families, victims’ families could sue. Especially if the prosecutor isn’t taking action or the mayor’s not changing their ways, I’d allow the families to go to court as well to recover damages.”
I'd file lawsuits against their estates before their bodies stopped twitching on the gibbet.
