Hittin’ the Highlights

So many flying monkeys, Truthseekers, so little time . . . .

Where to begin with our weekly round-up of all the news stories that caught our attention this week?  Do we begin with President Obama’s eerily-Eisenhoweresque commitment of 300 “military advisers” to Iraq to – somehow – contain the iSIS crisis?  Perhaps this is the best compromise the commander-in-chief can devise to quiet his critics on the right and the left, but it doesn’t sound like a winning plan for either side.

What about potential GOP presidential hopeful Gov. rich “Good Hair” Parry’s cringe-worthy comment that equated homosexuality with alcoholism, and concomitant suggestion that gays could be “cured?” Perry is backpedaling as fast as he can from that comment, which he made in San Francisco (!) last week.  CBS has more:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry probably shouldn’t have attempted to make the case that gay people can “decide not to” be gay despite genetic predisposition, he conceded Thursday, offering no semblance of an apology but trying instead to rally attention back to his message about jobs and the economy.

“I got asked about an issue,” Perry, a Republican, explained during a lunch hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “And instead of saying, ‘You know what? We need to be a really respectful and tolerant country – to everybody – and get back to talking about: Whether you’re gay or straight, you need to be having a job.’ And those are the focuses I want to be involved with.

“Instead,” he went on, “I readily admit – I stepped right in it.”

Perry was asked during an appearance in San Francisco last week whether he believes homosexuality is a disorder. He seized the opportunity to liken “the homosexual issue” with the physically debilitating disease of alcoholism.

“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not,” he said, “you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that. And I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”

Now if he’d only discuss his views on “legitimate rape” and “self-deporting” Hispanics, he’d be the perfect GOP candidate.

Speaking of presidential wannabes, the heat is on another GOP governor – beleaguered Chris Christie – as prosecutors in the “bridgegate” scandal are closing in on Christie’s cronies, and the question remains – will Christie consigliere David Samson filp against his boss, or will he take the hit for da familyEsquire has an exclusive:

Whatever Christie says or does — and whatever potential donors or Jimmy Fallon and his viewers think — the question that truly matters is whether Fishman’s pursuit leads to the governor himself. Christie’s Port appointees — not only Samson, but former PA Deputy Executive Director Bill Baroni and his oddball sidekick David Wildstein — all face near-certain indictment and are being pressed to hand up Christie, as is the governor’s former chief counsel, Charlie McKenna.

Wildstein, portrayed as the mastermind behind Ft. Lee’s traffic problems, has made proffers to Fishman’s investigators — hoping to trade information to the prosecutor in exchange for gentler legal treatment — but Fishman has cut no deals with anyone so far, and the looming indictments have encouraged Christie’s PA appointees to sing. “Don’t underestimate what Wildstein has on Christie,” says one source. “And Wildstein and Baroni have both turned on Samson. If Samson doesn’t give Fishman Christie, Samson is toast.” 

Is the tune “Born Under a Bad Sign” running through your head, too?  Man, I miss The Sopranos, but this is a close second. HBO couldn’t write this stuff any better.

And there’s a third Republican governor in the news today – Scott Walker of Wisconsin is facing a scandal that also involves Bush-era architect Karl Rove, among other notables in the Neocon hierarchy.  Politico explains it this way:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker participated in a “criminal scheme” to coordinate fundraising for Republicans trying to beat back efforts to recall him and state senators from office, local prosecutors argue in court documents released Thursday.

Walker, his chief of staff and others were involved in the coordination effort with “a number of national groups and prominent figures,” including Karl Rove, special prosecutor Francis Schmitz alleged.  “[T]he evidence shows an extensive coordination scheme that pervaded nearly every aspect of the campaign activities during the historic 2011 and 2012 Wisconsin Senate and Gubernatorial recall elections,” Schmitz wrote in a December motion, on behalf of five attorneys from some of the state’s most liberal counties, just now unsealed by an appellate court judge.

 

Wait a minute . . .a Republican candidate may have received help from Karl Rove in twisting an election?  Naw . . .. can’t be  . . .

And finally today, another gun-nut has shot up a Colorado theater.  How many mass shootings have there been this week?  This day?  This hour?  This is from the Pueblo Chieftain:

Authorities were searching Friday for a gunman who shot and wounded three people at the end of a rap concert at the popular Red Rocks outdoor amphitheater near Denver.

No motive was released, but Jefferson County sheriff’s spokesman Mark Techmeyer said the attack did not appear to be random.

The victims’ injuries were not life-threatening. Their names were not released.

The shooting occurred Thursday night at the concert benefiting three groups, including the Gang Rescue and Support Project of Denver.

    A quick excerpt from an article about the continuing drought here in the Southwest:

    The bathtub ring can be seen for miles. The 120-foot-high band of rock, bleached nearly white by mineral-rich water, circles the shoreline of Lake Mead. Water levels have dropped by almost 100 feet in the past decade, and the ring has emerged as a stark reminder of the drought enveloping the American Southwest. It also represents a looming crisis for the largest drinking-water reservoir in the U.S., one that has prompted the most ambitious water-construction project in recent history.

    So Mike –

    When you say, “I don’t think Obama is evil,” are you saying he did not know the Syria WMD false flag was a lie to get his approval for more oil and gas wars, in the same way Bush knew the Syria false flag was a lie?

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/06/guns-target-open-carry-texas-women-corpus-christi NOWHERE in the second amendment does it say that americans have the right to take loaded semi-automatic weapons into a place of business! What the FUCK is the matter with these assholes?! Amendment II

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” That is EXACTLY what the second amendment says! Where does it say “Yeah, it’s ok for stupid, insecure, lameass, anal retentive americans to carry loaded weapons into a store and scare the living shit out of other americans? Where does it say that?! IT DOESN’T! You cowardly, pasty faced, baggy assed motherfuckers who couldn’t out think a unopened container of Pringles love to march around with AR-15s slung over your shoulders like you think you’re a bunch of bad ass motherfuckers! If you think you’re so bad ass join the military and go fight ISIL in Iraq! None of you will because you’re too chickenshit to do it! You don’t want to shoot at anyone that will shoot back at you! I’d love to scoop up all of you son of bitches and drop you right in the middle of that meat grinder and say “Go for it! You think you’re so bad? Prove it! Go ahead and shoot at someone!” If I EVER see ANY of you turd sucking, gun toting fuckwads in a store that me or my friends or family are in, I fucking GUARANTEE you that I WILL call 911 and tell them that are people with guns shooting! Let’s see how well you do against the police or a SWAT team!

    As the sky suddenly darkened, I looked up to see a massive
    blimp-like object in the sky. But, on closer examination, I
    could plainly see it was Jim Wright’s over-inflated ego.

    Here’s a guy so stuck on his own self- righteousness that he
    is unable to tell the good guys from the bad. As proof, look
    at the company he sold himself to… That’s right, Wright, the
    US Military Complex. You expected roses? It was YOUR choice to
    join, unlike being drafted, as I was. You were lied to? Used?
    Again, what did you expect? Stop blaming others for YOUR choices.

    YOU decided to to post that blog that got so much attention, so
    when it was passed around you should have been grateful. But no,
    you got all pissy. Stop blaming others for YOUR choices. Twenty
    years in the military, climbing the chain of command ladder got
    that you that experience, so shut up. It was YOUR choice. Time
    for you to have a long chat with yourself and some professionals
    that may be able to help. I sincerely hope you will. But, that too,
    is Your CHOICE.

    Dittos, Dot & Denny. Once again, the wisdom of the saying (which I e-mailed to ole’ Jimbo): “Sometimes, ya’ just gotta burn a few bridges, just to keep the crazies from followin’ ya.”
    What a freakin’ goofball!

  6. Denny NNWofLA

    Best to get done what you want while the light is upon you.
    We have, once again, began our six-month slide back into
    the abyss of darkness from which some never come back. Did
    you feel the tilt-back start? Are seasons God’s Intellectual
    Properties? Life is for living, but we surely do screw it up!

    Happy Summer Solstice, Everyone !!!

    Happy Summer Solstice! I wrote on this forum several days ago that I belong to a sort of women’s “shaman” group here in California. Let’s call it a wisdom group. Anyway, I did it in response to a post from Kath which I liked and which gave perspective on life. I asked for no tomatoes thrown at me because usually linking California with women’s shaman group would bring many opportunities for humor.

    Now I see why someone said, “Who knows it could be someone’s intellectual property”. Wow, this is really sickening about this sicko! Ugh and ick! I know you were just kidding re my intellectual property rights, and thanks for being cool, as any truth seeker would be, about women who would just like to spread some peace on the planet…from California…

  8. Denny NNWofLA

    D thank you for that correction. I had one too many thats
    in my post. You, apparently are easily amused by a typo.
    I wrote a piece requiring a bit of thought and a little
    reading. You offered no thought except to mock me. That’s
    OK, but next time, do not feel obligated to send along a
    selfie video. And here is a spelling correction for you.
    That’s “fucking iDiot!”
