There no business like “shoe” business.
Hillary Clinton has been ducking questions on Benghazi for years, let alone many others, now she appears to be getting practice for her 2016 presidential run. An unnamed woman, who was not credentialed to be in attendance at an event that Hillary Clinton was the keynote speaker for, threw a shoe at the former first lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. The shoe was thrown by a blond woman in a blue dress (pic of woman), who raised her hands as if under arrest as she was hustled out of a meeting room at Mandalay Bay casino resort. She will obviously be facing criminal charges. The woman in the blue dress that is.
A woman threw what appeared to be a shoe at the former secretary of state in Las Vegas, but the potential presidential contender moved out of the way, then joked about it, according to reports.
Clinton was a keynote speaker at a scrap recycling conference where the incident occurred. A woman was arrested on suspicion of throwing the object, according to The Associated Press and local press accounts.
Mark Carpenter, a representative for the organization hosting the event — the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries — stressed that the woman “was not affiliated with our organization and was not credentialed for this event.”
“Our staff denied her access before she later rushed past security,” he continued in a statement. “An ISRI staffer then stopped her as she approached the stage. She was then handed over to law enforcement.”
Reuters – Hillary attempted some off the cuff jokes after the incident.
“Is that somebody throwing something at me?” Clinton asked, according to the Review-Journal. “Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?”
The newspaper quoted Clinton as saying, “My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial.”
Imagine this … There have now been more people arrested, captured and held responsible for a show throwing incident at Hillary Clinton than the killing of 4 Americans in Benghazi. UNREAL.

The Obama Administration & Democrats Playing Politics with Obamacare Again … Cuts to Medicare Advantage A No Go During an Election Year
Democrats once again playing politics with healthcare … Just changing the law as they see fit to benefit themselves.
Barack Obama previously said that Obamacare was a done deal and here to stay. However, one could say that it is Obama and Democrats that have done more to show that Obamacare is “unsettled” science and a disaster. Team Obama has done everything imaginable to delay the pain to Americans until after the 2014 midterm and even the 2016 elections so not to adversely affect Democrats. Add cuts to Medicare Advantage to the long list of delays as well. As reported at The Hill, the Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats. It’s a bit premature Barack to call Obamacare a done deal when you have delayed most of it so the American people don’t feel the affects until it is too late.
The Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats.
The cuts would have reduced benefits that seniors receive from health plans in the program, which is intended as an alternative to Medicare.
Under cuts planned by the administration, insurers offering the plans were to see their federal payments reduced by 1.9 percent, which likely would have necessitated cuts for customers.
Instead, the administration said the federal payments to insurers will increase next year by .40 percent.
The healthcare law included $200 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage over 10 years, in part to pay for ObamaCare.
The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) on Monday said changes in the healthcare market meant it did not need to make those cuts to Medicare Advantage this year.
New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, who signed a February 14 letter called on the Obama administration to essentially hold Medicare Advantage rates steady, said in a statement Monday that he was glad the Obama administration heeded their call. Code for, SOS for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.
One of the senators who signed that letter, New York Democrat Chuck Schumer, said in a statement Monday that he was glad the Obama administration heeded their call.
“In many parts of the country, including New York, Medicare Advantage works very well,” Schumer said.
Just curious, Democrats certainly had no problem voting for these cuts in lock-step with Barack Obama in passing Obamacare along a 100% partisan vote and ramming this down the throats of Americans. So, why suddenly the change? It could not possibly be because the cuts in the popular program, Medicare Advantage, would hurt Democrats at the voting booths, could it? No, of course not.
And now for something completely different … From The Smoking Gun, Al Sharpton was an FBI mob informant.
It is almost simply implausible to believe that the Reverend Al was an FBI mob rat. Al Sharpton was known by the FBI as “CI-7” worked for the FBI in the mid-1980s and regularly interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families, specifically leaders of the Genovese family, and he secretly recorded their conversations. Where was the microphone, in his medallion? Just when you thought you had heard it all.
The former mob snitch has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family (an evening the man has called “one of the highlights of my life”). During these gatherings, he has mingled with cabinet members, top Obama aides, military leaders, business executives, and members of Congress. His former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom.
The ex-informant has been one of Obama’s most unwavering backers, a cheerleader who has nightly bludgeoned the president’s Republican opponents in televised broadsides. For his part, Obama has sought the man’s counsel, embraced him publicly, and saluted his “commitment to fight injustice and inequality.” The president has even commented favorably on his friend’s svelte figure, the physical manifestation of a rehabilitation effort that coincided with Obama’s ascension to the White House. This radical makeover has brought the man wealth, a daily TV show, bespoke suits, a luxury Upper West Side apartment, and a spot on best seller lists.
Most importantly, he has the ear of the President of the United States, an equally remarkable and perplexing achievement for the former FBI asset known as “CI-7,” the Rev. Al Sharpton.
A lengthy investigation by The Smoking Gun has uncovered remarkable details about Sharpton’s past work as an informant for a joint organized crime task force comprised of FBI agents and NYPD detectives, as well as his dealings with an assortment of wiseguys.
Beginning in the mid-1980s and spanning several years, Sharpton’s cooperation was fraught with danger since the FBI’s principal targets were leaders of the Genovese crime family, the country’s largest and most feared Mafia outfit. In addition to aiding the FBI/NYPD task force, which was known as the “Genovese squad,” Sharpton’s cooperation extended to several other investigative agencies.
TSG’s account of Sharpton’s secret life as “CI-7” is based on hundreds of pages of confidential FBI affidavits, documents released by the bureau in response to Freedom of Information Act requests, court records, and extensive interviews with six members of the Genovese squad, as well as other law enforcement officials to whom the activist provided assistance.
Like almost every other FBI informant, Sharpton was solely an information source. The parameters of his cooperation did not include Sharpton ever surfacing publicly or testifying on a witness stand.
Check out the pics of Al Sharpton at The Daily News … Rev. Al Sharpton worked as FBI informant, taping conversations with mob pals to help bring down Genovese crime family.
Sharpton became an informant after he was caught on tape with a drug kingpin discussing cocaine deals, and the feds threatened him with charges unless he flipped and snitched on mafia acquaintances, according to The Smoking Gun. In an interview with the Daily News on Monday, Sharpton disputed much of the report, saying he turned to authorities after receiving threats from Gambino family member Joseph (Joe Bana) Buonanno and others.
Gotta Love It When This Happens …
Islamists were introduced to poetic justice and irony when 29 so-called rebels were killed when the car bombs they were loading into a vehicle prematurely exploded in the Syrian city of Homs. A guess these folks need to go back and re-read the chapter in the terrorists hand guide to bombs that deals with loading cars with explosives. But we will make it as Weasel Zippers did, the feel good story of the day.
Question, do they still get the virgins?
At least 29 rebel combatants died Sunday when a car bomb exploded in the central part of the city of Homs,

At least 29 rebels died in a blast Sunday in the central Syrian city of Homs as they primed a car bomb for an attack, a monitoring group said.
In the capital, meanwhile, two people were killed when mortar fire struck the Damascus Opera House, state media reported.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said at least 29 people were killed, most or all of them believed to be rebels, in the besieged Old City of Homs when a car bomb exploded.
“The death toll is likely to rise because there are dozens of people missing and body parts in the area of the blast,” the Britain-based group said.
State news agency SANA also reported the blast, saying a car had exploded while being loaded with explosives.
Jeb Bush Says He Will Make a Decision of Presidential Run by End of Year and Illegal Immigrants Who Come to US in an “Act of Love” Deserve to Get Amnesty
To borrow Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug slogan of the 1980′s and apply it to Jeb Bush’s thoughts on running for president … “JUST SAY NO”!!!
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run by the end of the year. Oh boy, I can’t wait. Let me just say that if the GOP wants to lose another election with a candidate along the lines of John McCain and Mitt Romney, then by all means have the elitist, establishment Republican party get behind Jeb. Let alone, we do not need another Bush as president. Just like we do not need another Clinton. It would appear that Instapundit and I agree! I think out of the 300 million people in the United States we can elect a president whose last name does not begin with Bush or Clinton.
Why do we not need a RINO like Jeb Bush as a GOP candidate? We need to look no further than his statement on Sunday that illegal immigrants who come to the United States as an “act out of love” for their families deserve to be treated differently than others who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. This is obviously code for, they deserve amnesty. I wonder if Jeb feels the same if an individual robs a bank, store or someone’s home out of love for their family or sells drugs is also the same?
A note to Jeb Bush … ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!! This is exactly the reason why so many have lost faith in establishment, limousine Republicans.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.
Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.
“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.
“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he added. “But the way I look at this — and I’m going to say this, and it’ll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”
So Jeb, why have any immigration policy if you think that the United States is just one big welfare state meant to help others in other countries, rather than its own citizens? Jeb Bush does realize that an immigration policy is meant to protect the survival of a country by allowing individuals with talent and skills to strengthen a country, not to let anyone one in who is going to be nothing more than a burden on society.
Bill Maher Actually Makes a Valid Point as People Laugh: “There Is A Gay Mafia, If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked” … The Intollerance of the Gay Rights Activists
Liberal comedian Bill Maher proves even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every so often …
During the online-only “Overtime” portion of HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, the liberal comedian weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and his comments may actually surprise you. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 $1000 donation to support a ballot initiative, proposition 8, that would ban same-sex marriage in California. Not only did the gay right activists target Brendan Eich, they successfully got him removed from Mozilla for simply applying his First Amendment rights of free speech. Bill Maher said, “There is a Gay Mafia, if you cross them, you do get whacked.”
Gay Rights activists just crossed a line that they will wish one day they did not. Paybacks are as they say, a bitch.
MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.
The Mozilla — which I’m wearing right now, by the way. I didn’t know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but — it’s Firefix, right? It’s the browser.
So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.
FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it’s come back to haunt him.
CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don’t think it’s very fair.
MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.
28 Year Old Sara Zamora Charged with 8 Felony Counts of Animal Cruelty in Animal Torture Sex Fetish Porn Video, ‘SOS Barn’ … Decapitating Live Chickens & Killing Rabbits While Engaging in Sex Acts
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, ARE THERE NO LEVELS TO HUMAN DEPRAVITY?
Just when you thought you had heard it all … 28 year old Miami woman, Sara Zamora, was charged with eight counts of animal cruelty for her participation in an animal torture sex fetish video. Zamora took part in decapitating live chickens and killing rabbits while engaging in sex acts during the filming of an animal torture video, ‘SOS barn’. The animal torture/sex video was shot at the home of Adam Redford. This low life was already on probation for a similar animal cruelty case in Lee County, FL last year. It is hard to imagine that there is a market for such crap, but there must be more depraved individuals among us than we ever thought. If convicted, Zamora can potentially face up to five years in prison for each count of animal cruelty.

Sara Zamora, 28, was arrested Friday on eight felony counts of animal cruelty for her feature role in a video called “SOS Barn” that a Miami-Dade police arrest report described in gory, stomach-turning detail.
“The chicken is enduring extreme pain and suffering during this process,” according to the arrest report.
The video clips — filmed for a twisted animal torture genre called “crush” — depicted her and other porn actresses “torturing and killing a wide variety of animals, including chickens, rabbits and more for the sexual gratification of its viewers,” according to police.
The barnyard snuff video was filmed at the South Miami-Dade home of Adam Redford, according to the police report, who is listed as a co-defendant. He is already on probation for a similar animal cruelty case in Lee County last year but had not been charged in the Miami-Dade case as of Friday night.
Police describe parts of this unthinkable, disgusting video and surprise, surprise … Sara Zamora has a laundry list of past criminal offenses.
In one clip of “SOS Barn,” police said Zamora is seen groping a man’s genitals with one hand while cutting a chicken’s neck with hedge clippers with her other hand, the Herald reported. She also karate-chopped the necks of several rabbits and admitted to killing them.
Videos that depict animal torture and death is illegal under Florida law.
Police arrested Zamora while she was already in jail for failing a probation drug test, according to the Herald. She was on probation for a laundry list of other offenses including grand theft with a firearm, credit card fraud and cocaine possession. She would have been released Friday had it not been for the “fickle finger of fate,” said defense attorney Theodore Mastos, according to the Herald.
Muslim parent in Dearborn, MI Upset Over School Flyer Promoting Easter Egg Hunt, But Some how Have No Issue With Muslims Beheadings, Honor Killings, Or Killing Women & Babies
Honestly, I really don’t give a crap anymore what happens to offend Muslims or makes them feel uncomfortable … I am sick and tired of all the claims of people being offended about everything … GET OVER IT!!!
Some Muslim parents are upset that the public schools in Dearborn, Michigan handed out flyers to their children advertising an Easter egg hunt at the Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church. Seriously, this is what offends a Muslim parent? You know what offends me, a religion that is hell-bent of killing infidels of all other religions. I am offended when so-called moderate Muslims would sit back and say nothing when other Muslims are beheading individuals, shooting Christian babies, constant killing of Christians, and Muslims killing Christan women. Hell, you think they might be offended by a good old-fashioned Muslim honor killing. NOPE! Isn’t it a shame that we don’t hear these same rants of feeling offended by actions of people of their own religion? But then again, Islam is a religion of Peace, as we are told. Sorry, Islam is a religion of INTOLERANCE!
Folks, at some point we have to start restoring America, or lose it forever.
Some Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.
A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.
“It really bothered my two kids,” said parent Majed Moughni, who is Muslim and has two children, ages 7 and 9, in Dearborn elementary schools. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’ ”
I have to echo the PJ Tatler and agree with their call of BS on the Muslim kids so-called claim of feeling “uncomfortable”.
I am calling BS on that parent. If his kid said that, my name is Mohammed. Besides, the flyer isn’t telling anyone to “go to church.” It’s inviting kids over to have some fun. And how can these secular symbols of Easter be defined as “religious”? Maybe the Muslims think that Christians worship bunny rabbits.
I must have missed the part in the Bible where there was a secular Easter Egg hunt before Jesus Christ was crucified and his resurrection.
UPDATE I: A Message to offended Muslims.
Virginia Democrat Rep. James P. Moran Says “The American People Should Know that the Members of Congress are Underpaid” at $174,000
These politicians are so out of touch with the American people and what is going on in the real world that they need to be fired and sent back to it …
US Rep. James Moran (VA-D) told CQ Roll Call that, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” Moran went on to say that with their $172,000 a year salary, many in Congress cannot “afford to live decently in Washington”. UNDERPAID, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Are we supposed to feel pity for these hacks who have pretty much forgot the reason why they are even in Washington, DC? As Weasel Zippers opines, “So he makes $3,300 per week and we’re supposed to feel bad for him?”
It is the Democrat party mindset where these fools think they should get raises for doing nothing, except things that are detrimental to America and Americans.
Virginia Democrat James P. Moran said he plans to highlight the injustice by introducing an amendment to the Legislative Branch bill during its full committee markup, and at floor consideration of the bill. Moran made the comments while the bill that funds member’s $174,000 salaries was being marked up in the Legislative Branch subcommittee.
“I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran told CQ Roll Call. “I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.
“Our pay has been frozen for three years and we’re planning on freezing it a fourth year. … A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently in Washington,” he said.
Moron Moran is complaining about having their pay frozen … welcome to the economic world that you, Barack Obama and the rest of the Democrats have created in a jobless recovery. This is just one of the reasons why the people give Congress such a low approval rating. Most politicians have forgot who they work for. With the work product they have put forward, had they been in the real world, individual like Moran would have been fired.
I have a better idea Mr. Moran, go get a real job!!! You were not sent to DC to get rich. If you do not like the pay, then resign from office and go find a job like the rest of America has to in this Obama jobless America. Personally, I think their pay should be cut in half and they should only be in Washington if they have to.They should be made to work the rest of the time in the private sector to deal with the garbage laws they pass.
