“Post-racial” America?- Navy Seal lies about being shot by 3 black males shouting profanities.

BATH TWP., Ohio - Bath Township detectives believe they have “overwhelming evidence” to prove a former Navy SEAL lied when he claimed he was shot during an altercation with three men outside of a popular shopping center.


He's expected to show up at the Bath Police Department on Thursday to be served with a summons to appear for his arraignment in Akron Municipal Court. A court date has not been set at this time.

"We have overwhelming evidence based upon video, cell phone records and interviews that the shooting did not occur in the West Market Plaza and that Mr. Heben made false allegations to us," said Bath Township Police Chief Mike McNeely.

Heben told police he was nearly hit by a low-profile sports car backing up in the parking lot on March 28 and that occupants, three black males, started shouting profanities at him.



Scott Brown: "I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs."

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), now a U.S. Senate candidate in New Hampshire, said that his job isn't to create jobs. That's for other Americans.

Instead, he said, his job is to get the government out of the way.

Brown made the comments at a town hall in Hudson, New Hampshire on Wednesday. The comments were flagged by the opposition research shop American Bridge 21st Century. His comments were in response to a question about what he would to do bring jobs to New Hampshire.

"Here's the thing, people say, what are you going to do to create jobs? I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs. It's yours," Brown said. "My job is to make sure that government stays out of your way so that you can actually grow and expand. Obamacare's a great example. The number one job inhibitor is Obamacare.

CVS Stops Tobacco Sales Today

CVS, the giant drugstore chain that shocked the U.S. public health community and Wall Street with its decision earlier this year to remove tobacco products from its shelves by October, said cigarettes are officially no longer on store shelves a month ahead of schedule.

The move to remove tobacco products effective this morning coincides with a company decision to also change its corporate name to CVS Health (CVS), from CVS/Caremark Corp. to reflect “its broader health care commitment” and desire to change the future health of Americans.

2 Former Senators/Whores For $$$ ---Hired By Russia To Lobby AGAINST US Sanctions Against Russia

And the latest example of American patriotism

Gazprombank GPB (OJSC), a Russian bank targeted with sanctions by President Obama over the Ukraine crisis, has hired two former U.S. senators to lobby against those sanctions, according to a new disclosure filed with the Senate.

Gazprombank is controlled by Russia’s state-owned energy company Gazprom, the country’s largest gas producer; it supplies about a third of Europe’s natural gas.

In a filing submitted Friday and effective that day, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., and former Senator John Breaux, D-La., are listed as the main lobbyists under the Gazprombank account for the firm Squire Patton Boggs, lobbying on “banking laws and regulations including applicable sanctions.”

Lotts name is especially outrageous given the number of times the GOP has accused Obama of being a traitor.

Want to know how badly Rand Paul wants to be president? This bad:

So Much for “Non-Interventionism” (per a report from the Weekly Standard):

Kentucky senator Rand Paul tells the AP that he would seek to “destroy ISIS militarily” if he were president:
“Speaking to a ballroom later, some of the loudest applause for Paul came when he quipped: ‘If the president has no strategy, maybe it’s time for a new president.’

“In an emailed comment, however, Paul elaborated by saying: ‘If I were President, I would call a joint session of Congress. I would lay out the reasoning of why ISIS is a threat to our national security and seek congressional authorization to destroy ISIS militarily.’

Paul had recently expressed ambivalence about U.S. military action against the Islamist terrorists who are building a state in Iraq and Syria. “I have mixed feelings about it,” Paul said of U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in early August. ‘I’m not saying I’m completely opposed to helping with arms or maybe even bombing,” he added.


LOL: Gov Christie: Putin Wouldn't Dare Treat ME The Way Putin Treats Obama.

September 2, 2014, 4:58 PM EDT 26 views

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) reportedly assured a room of GOP activists recently that Russian President Vladimir Putin wouldn't dare treat him the way Putin treats President Obama.


He had trouble selling his audience on a tough stance, the Times reported:

According to an audio recording of the event, he said Mr. Putin had taken the measure of Mr. Obama. “I don’t believe, given who I am, that he would make the same judgment,” Mr. Christie said. “Let’s leave it at that.”

One attendee described Mr. Christie’s answer as disturbingly heavy on swagger and light on substance. Another called it “uncomfortable to watch.”
