Fox host complains about Dem Debate: Democrats are "giving stuff away" and "buying votes":





"Thank God!"

It's starting to smell.....

The biggest losers were Republicans

The biggest losers were Republicans trying to use the Benghazi Committee to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email problems. It has energized Democrats and has backfired big time as a political issue.

Hillary Clinton was the clear winner. She was well prepared for every question and left the other candidates far behind. She might not be exciting and she might be grating to those tired of her, but she’s certainly the most qualified Democrat running to be president. She only helped her candidacy tonight.

Bernie Sanders is an important voice and source of energy for the Democratic party. He did a well on issues such as the “rigged economy” and campaign finance, but struggled badly on gun control and foreign policy. Nonetheless, Sanders has tapped into something very important that Democrats must harness if they want to win in 2016.

Martin O’Malley is what Donald Trump would call a “low energy” candidate. He’s mostly auditioning to be Clinton’s running mate but when he attempted to criticize her she gave him a look which suggested he might no longer be on the short list.

I’m not sure why Jim Webb, who was whiny about debate rules, and Lincoln Chafee, who was just terrible, even bother running.


Planned Parenthood stops taking money for fetal tissue

Source: The Hill

Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday that it will no longer accept any reimbursement as part of its fetal tissue donation program, taking its strongest step yet to end the onslaught of conservative attacks against the group.

The group’s president Cecile Richards disclosed the policy change in a letter to the National Institutes of Health, which she said was intended to “take away any basis for attacking Planned Parenthood to advance an anti-abortion political agenda.”

“This new policy removes beyond the shadow of a doubt the ludicrous idea that Planned Parenthood has any financial interest in tissue donation — and shows the real agenda behind these attacks,” Richards wrote in a statement.

Abortion providers are legally allowed to accept payments to cover the costs of procuring fetal tissue for medical researchers, which a handful of Planned Parenthood clinics have done. The organization has accepted “modest reimbursement” of $60 per tissue specimen, according to Richards’ letter to congressional leaders in August.

Charges filed against woman who shot at fleeing shoplifters in Home Depot parking lot

A 46-year-old Clarkston woman accused of firing gunshots at two men who were driving away from a Home Depot after stealing merchandise has been charged with reckless use, handling or discharge of a firearm.

Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez is accused of firing the shots Oct. 6 at Home Depot, 4150 Joslyn Road in Auburn Hills. Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said charges were filed Tuesday morning.

“If this is proven, I find it very disturbing that someone would take out their gun in a busy parking lot and shoot at the tires of a passing car,” Cooper said.

“Once fired, the bullet could have easily ricocheted or fragmented and injured or killed someone else. It would have been much more helpful for her to take out her cellphone and shoot pictures of the shoplifter’s license plate.”

A press release announcing the charges called Duva-Rodriguez’s actions “misguided.”


President Obama Crashed A Wedding - He also had some advice for the groom.

President Barack Obama became the wedding-crasher-in-chief this weekend after a round of golf at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

The president was finishing up his round just as it was time for Brian and Stephanie Tobe's wedding ceremony at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. The 18th hole was near where the wedding altar was going to be.

After Obama finished playing, the bride and groom, who were waiting in a nearby lodge, ran down to the hole where the president was shaking hands with onlookers.

Stephanie Tobe told NBC San Diego that Obama, who recently celebrated his 23rd wedding anniversary, had some advice for her soon-to-be husband: Don't step on the bride's dress.
