Thursday, September 8 is National Cheeseburger Day

 

SEPTEMBER 18 … NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY.

Enjoy a cheeseburger in Paradise today.

Cheeseburgers in Paradise – Jimmy Buffet

Get ready to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day.

You might not realize it, but we’ve got a good old-fashioned American celebration heading our way. Thursday, Sept. 18 is National Cheeseburger Day.

We’ve got input on that from a couple of burger-centric restaurant operations based in Kansas City. But, first, a little burger background to help put this momentous occasion into perspective.

According to Wikipedia, adding cheese to hamburgers became popular in the U.S. in the late-1920s to mid-1930s.

There are several competing claims as to who created the first cheeseburger.

Lionel Sternberger said he did it in 1926 at the tender age of 16 while working as a fry cook at his father’s sandwich shop in Pasadena, CA. According to legend, it was an experiment – Sternberger dropped a slab of American cheese onto a sizzling burger.

Not long after, cheeseburgers started popping up on menus. A 1928 menu from O’Dell’s restaurant in Los Angeles offered a cheeseburger topped with chili for a quarter.

There are other claimants to the cheeseburger crown, including Louis Ballast of the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, CO, who was awarded a trademark for the name in 1934.

Steak n’ Shake also said its founder, Gus Belt, applied for a trademark on the word cheeseburger in the ’30s.

Whoever, however, and whenever the cheeseburger made it into the American lexicon, the rest, as they say, is history.

Who doesn’t like a mouth-watering cheeseburger. Well of course I guess if you are a vegan. Of course then there are the following cheeseburger ads that will make you forget or care who crated the first cheeseburger and be thankful that some one did :-)

Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer has been arrested on assault charges, including aggravated assault and preventing someone from calling 911, it was revealed Wednesday evening.

Phoenix police said the charges stemmed from two separate incidents that are alleged to have occurred at his home in late July. A report was first made to the Phoenix Police Department on Sept. 11, and when detectives questioned Dwyer, he admitted to the incidents but denied any physical assaults, police said.

Dwyer was being booked into the Maricopa County Jail on Wednesday on one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault, police said.

Neighbors heard a fight and called police, who showed up at the residence. Police Sgt. Trent Crump said Dwyer hid in the bathroom until police left. The next day, Crump said Dwyer snatched the woman’s cellphone and threw it from the second floor of their home to prevent her from calling police about another dispute.

The woman came forward last week, providing police with information about her injuries and text messages that indicated Dwyer “was going to harm himself because of what had been going on,” police said.

Arizona Cardinals’ Jonathan Dwyer arrested for domestic violence charges.

On July 21, Phoenix police were called to the home and were met at the door by the victim who denied there was anyone else in the home. She indicated she was in an argument on the phone. The officers left. Police later learned Dwyer was hiding in a bathroom at the home, Crump said.

On July 22, the victim tried calling 911 during a second incident, but Dwyer allegedly grabbed the cell phone and threw it from the second floor of their home to keep her from calling police, according to Crump. He also said after the alleged physical altercation, Dwyer threw a shoe toward the child.

In the wake of the alleged attacks, the victim, whose name hasn’t been released, left the state with their child, Crump said.

The victim, still living out of state, contacted Phoenix police on Sept. 11 with details about the injuries suffered during the alleged attacks. She alleged Dwyer has sent her a photo of a knife and also described threatening text messages she had received from Dwyer.

Arizona Cardinals released the statement after deactivating Dwyer on Wednesday:

“We became aware of these allegations this afternoon when notified by Phoenix police and are cooperating fully. Given the serious nature of the allegations we have taken the immediate step to deactivate Jonathan from all team activities. We will continue to closely monitor this as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.”

Wednesday night, Charlottesville police released surveillance videos from Sal’s Caffe Italia – at 1:06 a.m. Saturday – and from Tuel Jewelers – at 1:08 a.m. – that show Graham walking on the downtown mall. A man is seen walking in front of Graham. He stops and is then seen walking behind her. Two minutes later, Graham is seen walking with another woman with the same man following them. The man has identified himself and has spoken to police, saying he followed Graham to see if she needed help. He says he saw another man put his arm around Graham, and now police are looking for that second man.

Thursday, police will pull more surveillance video to see where she and the unidentified man went next.

During a police press conference at CitySpace Wednesday afternoon, new surveillance video was shown. The video shows Graham in front of McGrady’s Irish Pub on Grady Avenue at 12:46 Saturday morning. Nine minutes later, at 12:55 a.m., security cameras at the Shell gas station caught Graham running, then walking, along Preston Avenue headed toward the downtown mall. Police say no one is seen chasing her in the surveillance video. Five minutes later, at 1 a.m., an eyewitness sitting in a car by Fellini’s restaurant spotted Graham turning the corner from Market Street heading toward the downtown mall on Second Street northwest. Surveillance video also shows her walking by Sal’s at 1:06 a.m. and by Tuel Jewelers at 1:08 a.m. A final text from Graham’s cellphone was sent at 1:20 a.m. saying she was lost back over by the UVA corner.

Charlottesville police put a call out for security camera footage from any other downtown businesses on Friday night or Saturday morning.

UPDATE I: Police Say Witness saw man put arm around missing UVa. student Hannah Graham.

At a Wednesday press conference Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said they had received over 100 tips, interviewed over 50 people and had new video to examine.

Detectives visited businesses on the Downtown Mall, a pedestrian area located just over a mile away from the UVa. campus, to see if anyone had surveillance video that might show Graham’s path the night she disappeared.

Wednesday evening Capt. Gary Pleasants told CBS 6 reporter Melissa Hipolit that they examined two new videos, which showed an unidentified white male following Graham.

Pleasants then said that the man in the video came to the police station, and said he had also left his story on the tip line.

He told police that he was walking with her to make sure she was okay, because she seemed physically distressed and he “wanted to make sure she got safely wherever she was going.”

Gen. Martin Dempsey,Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Says … US May Send in Ground Troops to Fight ISIS (Video)

 

BOOTS ON THE GROUND …  I THOUGHT THAT OBAMA SAID THERE WOULD BE NO BOOTS ON THE GROUND?

Foreign policy from the Divider in Chief, even the military and WH are divided …

Barack Obama said emphatically that the US would put no boots on the ground against ISIS, not so fast.  General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate panel yesterday that the United States  may send in ground troops if they are needed to defeat ISIS. Gen. Dempsey stated, that he hasn’t ruled out recommending U.S. ground forces deploy to attack ISIS targets if the current air campaign in Iraq fails. Dempsey said that Obama might reconsider boots on the ground and come back to him on a case by case basis. Oops. That is a much different message than Obama is trying to show in public to his left-wing, moonbat base.

ABC NEWS:   US Troops Could Fight ISIS in Iraq

The nation’s top military officer opened the door slightly today to the possibility of American troops accompanying Iraqi forces on the battlefield against ISIS if needed.

The latest deployment of 475 American forces to Iraq includes 150 advisers who will be working closely with Iraqi brigades at the headquarters level to coordinate the Iraqi military’s offensive operations against ISIS.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the advisers “will help the Iraqis conduct campaign planning, arrange for enabler and logistics support, and coordinate coalition contributions.”

He told the committee that he currently does not see a need for American troops to serve as JTAC’s with Iraqi units, though he could change his recommendation as events warranted.

Dempsey said that Gen. Lloyd Austin, who oversees U.S. Central Command, had initially recommended using American JTAC’s with the Iraqi and Kurdish forces that retook the Mosul Dam last month, but ended up using work-around technologies. Dempsey said he does not currently see the need to embed the controllers with Iraqi forces, “but I’m not walking away from what I said. If we get to the point where I think we need the JTAC with the Iraqi security forces, I will make the recommendation.”

CNN:

At least it was ironclad until Tuesday, when Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told members of Congress he hasn’t ruled out recommending U.S. ground forces deploy to attack ISIS targets if the current air campaign in Iraq fails.

“To be clear, if we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I will recommend that to the President,” Dempsey said.

Ex-State Department Official Raymond Maxwell Claims Hillary Clinton Allies Scrubbed Benghazi Documents in Secret Basement Session … “I asked her, ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’

 

If the IRS can lose emails to protect Barack Obama, why would it not be believable that the State Department would shred documents to protect Hillary Clinton?

The story is that the State Department shredded of documents before the they were to be seen by the Accountability Review Board. In the basement of the State Department, they were creating two piles of documents, one good for Hillary, the other bad. Guess what happened to the doc that were deemed to shed a bad light on Hillary? Who was present at this “unethical” and illegal document party, Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff  Cheryl Mills and her Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. UNREAL.

But what difference does it make, right Hillary?

Benghazi Bombshell: Fox News Report Sharyl Attkisson’s Exclusive

A former State Department official has told lawmakers that Hillary Clinton allies privately removed politically damaging documents before turning over files to the supposedly independent board investigating the Benghazi terror attack.

The account from Raymond Maxwell, former head of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), was first published in The Daily Signal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that Maxwell told him and other lawmakers the same story when they privately interviewed him last year about the attacks and their aftermath.

Chaffetz said that Maxwell claimed Clinton’s chief of staff and deputy chief of staff were overseeing the document operation, which allegedly took place on a weekend in a basement office of the State Department.

“What they were looking for is anything that made them look bad. That’s the way it was described to us,” Chaffetz said.

According to Chaffetz’ account of his interview with Maxwell, as well as the Daily Signal report by Sharyl Attkisson, Maxwell said those scrubbing the documents were looking for information that would cast Clinton and senior leaders in a “bad light.”

The Daily Signal:

“I was not invited to that after-hours endeavor, but I heard about it and decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon,” Maxwell says.

He didn’t know it then, but Maxwell would ultimately become one of four State Department officials singled out for discipline—he says scapegoated—then later cleared for devastating security lapses leading up to the attacks. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were murdered during the Benghazi attacks.

‘Basement Operation’

Maxwell says the weekend document session was held in the basement of the State Department’s Foggy Bottom headquarters in a room underneath the “jogger’s entrance.” He describes it as a large space, outfitted with computers and big screen monitors, intended for emergency planning, and with small offices on the periphery.

When he arrived, Maxwell says he observed boxes and stacks of documents. He says a State Department office director, whom Maxwell described as close to Clinton’s top advisers, was there. Though the office director technically worked for him, Maxwell says he wasn’t consulted about her weekend assignment.

Even Lib Jon Stewart Rips Into Barack Obama for Acting ‘Chaotic & Confused’ on ISIS

 

Comedian Jon Stewart shredded President Barack Obama during his program Monday night, accusing him and his minions of acting “chaotic and confused” on how to deal with the Islamic State. Maybe the youth will now understand that Obama is a complete screw up.

Mediaite:

Stewart concluded by pointing out a key difference between the Obama and Bush administrations: the Bush administration was “incredibly disciplined and focused” in doing the wrong thing, while the Obama administration is doing the right thing, but couldn’t be more “chaotic and confused” about it.

UNBELIEVABLE … College Students at George Mason University Sign Petition in Support of ISIS (VIDEO)

 

Just when you thought American college kids could not get any more ignorant … They’re parents must be so proud.

Who would be dumb enough to sign a petition in support of ISIS … From MRC TV, courtesy of CNS News comes the following VIDEO that just makes one shake their head in disbelief. Student after clueless student walked up to the individual with the petition to support ISIS and they signed it. Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph was able to get 11 people to sign the petition. The only saving grace were two guys, one wearing a hockey jersey who stated, “you should be ashamed to even live in this country” and the other wearing tan shorts and shades who went on a tirade regarding the ignorant individuals that would sign such a petition. KUDOS to both of you.

Maybe one of the most head scratching exchange was when the petitioner said, “war is not the answer”. The response from the backpack wearing student, “No it’s not”. Then he says, “beadings are not the answer either” The petitioner quickly and sarcastically responds, “It depends on what the question is.” Then amazingly the student replies, “yeah, that’s true”.

I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence.

God, I hope so!

Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition.  The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”
