In Cairo, Egypt's Jon Stewart hosts 'Daily Show's' Jon Stewart

CAIRO - Jon Stewart took his politically engaged American satire to Cairo on Friday, appearing on a show hosted by the man known as "Egypt's Jon Stewart," who has faced investigation for insulting the president and Islam.

Among barbs aimed at Egypt's ruling Islamists and others, Stewart praised host Bassem Youssef for taking risks to poke fun. "If your regime is not strong enough to handle a joke," he said, "then you don't have a regime."

Obama Administration Urges Hong Kong To Act Soon On Edward Snowden Extradition

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - The United States pressured Hong Kong on Saturday to act soon on its request to extradite former U.S. government contractor Edward Snowden to face espionage charges.

"If Hong Kong doesn't act soon, it will complicate our bilateral relations and raise questions about Hong Kong's commitment to the rule of law," said a senior Obama administration official. (Reporting By Steve Holland; Editing by Paul Simao)

Where is Nance anyway? Got run off of here, I believe. Anybody know?

I always enjoyed her postings immensely. Shame she's not still around.

Count me as a dyed-in-the-wool, Yellow-dog, Alan Grayson/Elizabeth Warren/Bernie Sanders Democrat.

I know my history. I know my civics. I know my country. I know it has been in distress for many, many years now. If that makes me a pearl-clutcher, that is a badge I will wear with honor. I would rather be that than a Pollyanna any day. Other than that, my garden is doing very nicely. Got some great day lilies in bloom. Beautiful.

On edit: I intend to only work for real Democrats in 14.

I have worked on many a campaign over the last many decades, and am quite involved locally with the party. I intend to work only with real progressives, no faux Democrats for me.

God bless their little hearts. Pathetic.

I am starting this Pre-Impeachment thread at this time.

Enough is enough. This is in regards to the chained CPI being brought up once again. Because I have not verified the information, it will only be a pre-impeachment thread for now. Should I find out that chained CPI is once again on the table, I will modify it to a full impeachment thread.

I vow to work to impeach *anyone who is involved with chained CPI, whether or not it passes. If it is once again on the table, anyone who entertains it will face impeachment challenges, and to the extent possible, challengers at election time. I have completely had it with Washington.

Obama is the best we have, for now, but honestly that's not saying much at this point. Sorry to all those who love him. I used to. Not so much now. There are a million reasons to change course, and I mean sooner rather than later. For our children, and our future. We need to start thinking about impeachment of a SCOTUS justice, too, for other reasons, along with anyone who doesn't immediately move to fix this country.

I voted for someone to fix the Wall St bankers and make those screwed whole. Didn't happen. It's a mess. Flame away.

This is why I never post here anymore. What good does it do to have rules when the search box

doesn't work? I searched for that thread before I posted it. Just makes me look like an idiot. I'm done. Vent over. Back into hiding, until the next whack-a-mole. GRRRRR.

Arpaio crony, Fox News darling, Senate candidate and militia leader arrested for child molestation

Source: Daily Kos

Gee, who could've predicted it? His former wives said he was violent and beat their kids. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that he had a very dark side and "troubled past." His young daughter said he tried to molest her. And yesterday it caught up with one of Arizona's most well-known border hawks:

A one-time border activist was arrested Wednesday by Phoenix police and accused of sexual conduct involving three girls younger than 10 years old, police said.
Christopher Allen Simcox, 52, who founded the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in 2005, was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of child molestation, attempted child molestation and sexual exploitation of a minor. Arizona Republic

A former supporter of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and other anti-immigration buttfaces, like recalled Sen. Russell Pearce, Simcox today sits in Arpaio's jail. It's a long fall from just a few years ago, when the handsome and articulate nativist regularly appeared on Fox News, praising SB 1070 and blasting any attempts at immigration reform.

Instead of naming it PRISM or however it's spelled, the should have named it Edgar. nt
