The RW sites are all reporting that Border Patrol...

.. has been ordered to "stand down" and not enforce the borders.

I can't find any reputable source for this story.

Did they make it up out of whole cloth, or is there a backstory on this?

Second try.... The usual RW blogs...

...are claiming that somebody is going to pay $6,000 a month to house those child immigrants in Muretta, CA.

I won't post a website.... notsobrightbart has it, and so does Fux.

"An ad placed in the Penny Saver Newspaper in Murrieta, California is seeking "loving, compassionate parents to provide a loving home" for illegal immigrant minors, according to a local reader of the publication.
Lisa Maloney Vinton, a Murrieta resident, provided Breitbart Texas with a purported copy of the advertisement.."

Penny saver...? "purported copy"....?

Anybody got anything from a real source about this?

Hillary Clinton...missiles...Taliban....

Anybody got anything real on this one...? Obviously a hit piece on Hillary, but I'm curious about whether it actually happened.

"My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya."

I got...1)unnamed source 2)"believe the Stinger" 3)NY Post 4)CIA operation...not State Dept.

...anybody got anything else?

A little help...

The Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2014 was passed in the House in June of 2013. Referred to the Senate Committee.

What happened to that bill...?

It just vanishes.

RW asshole in the local newspaper blog says Reid killed it.

Researched a bunch, but can find no reason.

Climate change/warming...

I have posted the following list 12 time now... on the local newspapers' comments sections, on FB, ... all over. I have yet to get a response. The next posts are all about how AGW is a hoax and that there are thousands of scientists who disagree with all or part of AGM. And a lot of snarky shit about Al Gore.

Just like I hadn't posted it at all.

Cognitive dissonance is strong in those people... along with heavy amounts of Dumbshit.

Oh... noes.....another imperialist adventure!

The US will have to ramp up military spending now.

I can envision great sea battles over this particular piece of turf... er... ocean.

OK.. the Teapublican scandal of the day is...

..that Harry Reid owns 93 acres next to the Bundy place and wants it.

I've got all the debunks about the Chinese solar project, but I can't find anything on the web debunking this shit about the land. The web is full of all the RW squawking and flapping, but no debunk yet.

Anybody got anything?

Mary Yu appointed to state Supreme Court

Source: AP

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — King County Superior Court Judge Mary Yu was appointed to the Washington state Supreme Court on Thursday, and she will be the first openly gay justice, as well as the first Asian American, to serve on the state's high court.

Yu, who turns 57 next month, was appointed by Gov. Jay Inslee on Thursday. She replaces Justice James Johnson, who announced his retirement last month because of health issues. Johnson's last day on the bench was Wednesday. Yu will be sworn in later this month.

Openly gay.... performed some of the first same-sex marriages in the state... liberal...daughter of immigrants.. brilliant jurist...

...and she replaces a conservative pain-in-the-ass on the WA Supreme Court.

It's a good day for us in the Evergreen State.

Why bother having a military at all...?

We "won" a war against a country with no real army, and were unable to ensure any kind of peace there afterward.... Iraq.

We've been stalemated/beaten by a country with no real country at all.... Afghanistan.

We've spent $6 Trillion and over 6,000 American lives and countless innocent lives.

For nothing.

An now, a few clowns in Nevada - who've seen "Red Dawn" too many times - make a mockery of Federal law.

We've advertised that we're the world's Paper Tiger, and now we seem intent on showing the world that we can't even control our own homegrown terrorists.

We don't have enough helicopters to "dust them down" and out of there? All those expensive vehicles with treads and armor and shit can't scare off a bunch of paunchy Rambo wanna-bees?

I'm not talking anything as violent at what happened to the OWS protestors, mind you. Just massive force that overwhelms them into retreat.

All we've done is encourage the lunatics. All over the earth...
