Will Socialist Senator from VT Bernie Sanders Run for President in 2016 … He Could Be Hillary Clinton’s Worst Nighmare
RUN BERNIE, RUN …
Will socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of the People’s Republic of Vermont run for president in 2016? Sanders proudly embraces the moniker as a a Democratic socialist. Why shouldn’t he, the man is a socialist. One might as embrace what they are. He states in his interview that he describes his credo as a fight to protect America’s working class from what he sees as the threat of an approaching “oligarchic form of society.” In other words, capitalism is evil. Maybe this is exactly what the Democrat Presidential primary needs, an individual who actually reflects what the party has become, socialist. If Sanders puts his socialism where his mouth is, it could represent Hillary Clinton’s, the anointed one, worst nightmare. Many have been looking for Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016, some one that would run left of Hillary. Bernie Sanders certainly fills the bill.
This should be interesting. The reality is that Bernie Sanders more represents what the Democrat party has become these days.
Though Sanders isn’t making any secret of his possible 2016 presidential bid, he said he’s still determining whether he could generate a sufficient level of grassroots support on which to build a campaign.
“Look, it’s easy for me to give a good speech, and I give good speeches,” he said. “It is harder to put together a grassroots organization of hundreds of thousands of millions of people prepared to work hard and take on the enormous amounts of money that will be thrown against us.”
One of Sanders’ most likely competitors, should he choose to seek the Democratic nomination, is Hillary Clinton. And while Sanders praised Clinton for a successful career, he was critical of the Democratic Party’s seeming coronation of the former secretary of state.
“She has accomplished a lot of very positive things in her career, but I’m not quite sure that the political process is one in which we anoint people,” Sanders said.
Though he stopped short of criticizing Clinton directly, he said she is not a sufficient champion of his message for the middle class.

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles as alien, nanny, therapist and cartoon genie during a four-decades long career, was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday. He was 63.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams’ death is ongoing, but the coroner “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”
A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling “severe depression of late.”
“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” Mara Buxbaum said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
The death of Robin Williams is truly like a death of so many childhood memories. So many great TV shows and movies. But the best of all was his brilliant comic ad-lib. I can remember Robin Williams from when he first came to our TV’s on Happy Days as Mork. This would in turn spin off into Mork & Mindy where he starred with Pam Dawber as an alien living in Bolder, CO. Williams starred in some of my favorite movies like The Bird Cage, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, August Rush, Moscow on the Hudson, The World According to Garp and Dead Poets Society.

Good Morning Vietnam
Dead Poets Society – the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation; don’t resign to that…
Not only a great movie scene, but words to live by. “We much constantly look at things in a different way. Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in a different way.”

Judge Jeanine Pirro Opening Statement 8/9/14 – Rips Obama on Iraq ISIS Situation … “This is a reverse crusade, Muslim extremists looking to kill Christians and Jews. Today, it’s different. They are coming for us.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro hammers Barack Obama on ISIS in Iraq and his feckless foreign policy as he heads off for yet another vacation.
Pirro said Obama’s incompetence is on display for all the world to see as the country’s enemies conduct a “reverse crusade.”
“I’m not going to blame the problems of the world on Barack Obama – though it wouldn’t take much to get me on a tear at this point,” she said on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “But the problem is, President Barack Obama is too inexperienced, too out of touch and too disengaged to protect us.”
His news conference Friday didn’t help, Pirro said, noting that “the backdrop was his helicopter, on which his bags were packet for yet another vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.”
“This is a reverse crusade, Muslim extremists looking to kill Christians and Jews,” she said. “Today, it’s different. They are coming for us.”

A graphic video posted on YouTube showed Stewart, a three-time Sprint Cup champion in Nascar, hitting the driver, Kevin Ward Jr., 20, as Ward stood outside his racecar on the track.
Ward and Stewart had bumped cars during an earlier lap, sending Ward’s racecar into an outside wall and prompting a caution flag. Ward then exited his racecar and approached on foot as Stewart’s racecar came around again. As Ward stood on the track and pointed at Stewart, Stewart’s racecar sounded as if it revved its engine then fishtailed, the right tire hitting Ward and dragging him under the car.

TOO LITTLE AND WAY TOO LATE …
President Barack Obama has finally authorized US air strikes, if necessary, against ISIS. If necessary? Obama said that he approved “targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death.” Obama said, “Today America is coming to help.” Seriously? It was Obama’s inept military withdrawal that has created the problem. And his refusal to pull the trigger in stopping ISIS before they ever gained traction. Maybe if this dithering president had acted many months ago Iraq would not be in complete chaos as ISIS has taken over many stronghold cities. They should have been stopped when they were crossing the Syria border into Iraq. Then again, Obama does not believe in borders.
So why now Barack Obama, are there no fundraisers or golf outings planned? Just another example why Obama gets poor marks on foreign policy, including more recent one’s that show a 60% disapproval raring.
President Obama authorized airstrikes “if necessary” against Islamic militants if they move toward Erbil in northern Iraq where American military, diplomats and civilians are stationed.
During a late night statement Thursday from the White House, the president said he’s okayed “targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death.”
Mr. Obama explained that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in recent days has “continued to move across Iraq and have neared the city of Erbil, where American diplomats and civilians serve at our consulate and American military personnel advise Iraqi forces to stop the advance on Erbil.
The Washington Free Beacon reports on Obama’s inaction against ISIS.
Obama said he would not be “dragged into fighting another war in Iraq,” saying combat troops would not return to the country since no American military solution existed for Iraq’s larger problems. He has been sharply criticized for the deteriorating situation and essential partitioning of Iraq since pulling troops out. The city of Fallujah, site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq War for American troops, fell in January, and since then the entire nation has fallen into chaos as ISIL continues to seize key cities and facilities.
In January, Obama dismissed ISIL as the equivalent of a junior varsity team putting on a Kobe Bryant jersey and considering itself on par with the Lakers.
Obama also said Thursday he had ordered humanitarian assistance to the minority Iraqis stranded and dying of thirst on Mount Sinjar, who are facing threat of extermination by ISIL if they try to leave.
Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera Says Federal Government Releasing Murderers Into U.S. & Morale is at an All-Time Low
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, a Community agitator?
Is it any surprise that US Border agent’s morale is at an all-time low when agents are not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do and they see on a daily basis that they have to let admitted gang members and murderers into the United States per the federal government? What has become of this country? Honestly, what is the point of having immigration laws, border agents and a border if we are not going to uphold them? This is what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum.
A Border Patrol agent claims that the federal government is allowing murderers from Central America to be released into the U.S.
Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, agent Chris Cabrera stated that these teenage gang members crossing the border are being released to family members in the U.S.
“If they have family in the United States, they’ll release them to the family, even if they’re admitted gang members,” Cabrera explained to Fox News. “We’ve had a couple that had admitted to murders in their home country. They were 17 years old, 16 years old, and the United States government thought it fit to release them to their parents here in the United States.
“Even if he’s a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country, we release them into our country.”
Body of Missing 6 Year Old Jenise Wright found in Wooded Area Near Her Mobile Home Park in Bremerton, WA (VIDEO) … RIP (Update: Death Ruled a Homicide)
JUST TRAGIC …
The body of 6 year old missing Jenise Wright was found Thursday in a wooded area near her mobile home park in Bremerton, WA. Although the body found has not been officially ID’d, it is thought to be Jenise Wright. Authorities are considering this a criminal case. Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy Scott Wilson said at a late afternoon news briefing, “We suspect that she just did not go off by herself and fall into some bushes and die.” Jenise Wright was last seen Saturday night, August 2, 2014; however, was not reported missing until about 24 hours later. An autopsy will be conducted Friday to determine the 6 year old’s cause of death. No arrests have been made yet; however, the police said that they’re trying to narrow in on a suspect, and they’re “not ruling out anything.”
The body of Jenise Wright, the 6-year-old East Bremerton girl who has been missing since Sunday, was found in a wooded area near her mobile home park Thursday, authorities said, and that her death isn’t believed to have been accidental.
“This is going to be a criminal investigation, there’s no doubt about that,” Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy Scott Wilson said at a late afternoon news briefing. “We suspect that she just did not go off by herself and fall into some bushes and die.”
“It’s tragic circumstances that bring us here,” Frank Montoya Jr., FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Seattle office, said at the same news briefing at Jenise’s Steele Creek Mobile Home Park.
He praised the operators of the FBI’s K-9 teams. “The K-9s were so instrumental in actually locating the body of Jenise today,” Montoya said. “We couldn’t have done it without them.”
News conference on discovery of child’s body
The Sheriff’s Office said the remains appear to be the body of Jenise.
The body is expected to be positively identified Friday by the Kitsay County coroner, who will also determine the cause and manner of death.
Video from Chopper 7 showed several officers gathered at the entrance to a wooded area near the mobile home park. Police cars were seen in a field and investigators dressed in white protective suits were spotted going in and out of the mobile home where Jenise and her family live Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information about the girl can contact Kitsap County’s Sheriff’s Office at 360-308-5400 or the FBI’s tip line at 1-800-225-5324.
40 Year Old Tatanysha Hedman Arrested for Setting her 52 Year Old Husband Vincent Phillips on Fire After Catching Him Molesting Her 7 Year Old Daughter
Arrested, she should have been given a medal …
52 year old Vincent Phillips ran from his apartment and drove to a nearby Skyway convenience store screaming “I’m on fire!” Sounds like he is the victim, doesn’t it? However, appearances can be deceiving. Phillips was doused with gasoline and set on fire by his wife, 40 year old Tatanysha Hedman. However, some one does not do something this extreme unless there is a real reason to set a Momma Bear off. It would appear that Tatanysha Hedman caught her husband molesting her 7 year old daughter. Hedman said she did it because shooting him “was too nice.” Vincent Phillips is now facing sex crime charges. However, the police also arrested Tatanysha Hedman and she has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and arson woman suspected of setting husband on fire.
After a mother in Renton, Washington, caught her husband allegedly molesting her 7-year-old daughter, she apparently planned a violent revenge plot.
Tatanysha Hedman, 40, reportedly told police that she decided to douse her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, in gasoline while he slept and then light him on fire.
She told police that simply shooting him would have been “too nice” given the circumstances.
Phillips reportedly ran into a nearby gas station seeking help after he was able to put himself out. The man was badly burned and had to be hospitalized in intensive care.
Phillips is also now facing sex crime charges involving the 7-year-old girl, who is his stepdaughter. The extent of his alleged crimes were unknown as of Wednesday afternoon.
This child sex offender should probably count his lucky stars and pray that his wife did not go Lorena Bobbitt on him.
