Happy National Dog Day From Our Mascot

Dogs have both an outer and inner beauty, an ability to love and a spirit that connects with humans in a way that cannot be replicated by any other living thing.

Opinion Poll: Who Should Moderate The First Presidential Debate?

Remember when CNN’s Candy Crowley interfered with the second presidential debate between Mitt Romney and The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer?

The morbidly obese Crowley was roundly criticized for taking sides when Romney questioned Obama’s claim he had called the Benghazi attack an act of terror in a Rose Garden ceremony the day after the attack rather than blaming it on a spontaneous demonstration.  Crowley infamously butted in (no pun intended) on the exchange regarding the administration’s changing of the Benghazi “talking points”.

Crowley interrupted Governor Romney 28 times during that debate and the president just 9.  Not only were her interruptions flagrantly tilting the debate in the president’s favor she allowed him more time to filibuster by saying, “Let me give the president a chance here.”

The media was desperate to tip the scales in Obama’s favor because his performance in the first debate was so horrendous.

Who would the most effective, fair and balanced moderator for the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?

Is Twitter Running Interference for Hillary?

I had noticed it before, but again, when I posted the following Tweet, I tagged Hillary in the photo:
Hillary's name disappeared, as it had in several other Tweets I'd noticed. As a test, I posted an old Photoshop of Trump and tagged him:
His tag survived intact. Is Twitter running interference for Hillary by refusing to tag any potentially embarrassing pictures or graphics bearing her name? Inquiring minds want to know!

Update: Just for grins, I Tweeted Hillary to see if maybe she'd blocked me. Nope. That ain't the reason!

National Burger Day

PICTURED (L to R) Former President Bill Clinton, Sandy Berger, Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State
Bill Clinton’s national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was a failure.  On his watch an assassination attempt against Osama bin Laden in 1998 failed when a Tomahawk missile was fired at his encampment.  Trouble was, according to the CIA, bin Laden had left the camp before the attack.

After the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, Berger appeared before the 9/11 Commission to testify on what kind of warnings had been passed on to his successors in the George W. Bush Administration and whether enough had been done to address the rising threat of al-Qaeda.

A 2007 report by the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform revealed Berger made four trips to the reading room of the National Archives in Washington. He did so presumably to refresh his memory before testifying first to the Graham-Goss Congressional Committee and then to the 9/11 Commission. He made his first visit in May 2002, his last in October 2003.

During at least three of those visits, he stole and destroyed an incalculable number of documents.   He stuffed the documents in his pants and socks spiriting them out of the building, hid them in a nearby construction trailer and retrieved them at a later date.

"The full extent of Berger's document removal," said the House report, "is not known and never can be known."

He pleaded guilty in 2005 to removing the highly classified documents and was fined $50,000, sentenced to two years’ probation, ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and stripped of his security clearance.

One headline at the time read “FBI Grills Berger.”

Wait a minute. 

It’s National Burger Day not National Berger Day.  Never mind.
