HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?
What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.
The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.
Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.
“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.
“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
Johnny Manziel Indicted by a Dallas County Grand Jury on a Misdemeanor Assault with Bodily Injury Charge
JOHNNY FOOTBALL INDICTED ….
CBS11 is reporting that Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Dallas County Grand Jury on a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge. The indictment occurred even though a settlement has been reached between Manziel and Crowley. It would be a miracle if Manziel was aver picked up by another NFL team ever as he has just too much baggage and too little talent. You have to wonder what the hell the Cleveland Brown were thinking. Those at the Heisman might also want to take a moment of reflection and ponder what “integrity” means to them.
Sources in the Dallas County District Attorney’s office tell L.P. Phillips of KRLD-AM, Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Dallas County Grand Jury on a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge.
The grand jury reviewed evidence in the assault case against former NFL quarterback Manziel, Thursday, April 21.
The 23-year-old quarterback is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley several times while driving from an uptown Dallas bar back to her home in Fort Worth.
According to police records, Crowley tried to jump out of the moving car and get to safety, but Manziel stopped, dragged her back into the car and hit her.
Crowley told the valet at Hotel Zaza, “Please don’t let him take me,” according to her police report, “I’m scared for my life!”
Manziel was cut by the Browns in March after two tumultuous seasons marked by inconsistent play and off-the-field headlines about his partying and drinking, including one stint in rehab. His future in the NFL is uncertain and might be nonexistent without the second stint in treatment that two agents demanded before cutting ties with him.
In a statement to ESPN and other media Tuesday, Manziel said, “I’m hoping to take care of the issues in front of me right now, so I can focus on what I have to do if I want to play in 2016. I also continue to be thankful to those who really know me and support me.”
Manziel didn’t have much impact during the little time he spent on the field for the Browns the past two seasons. He passed for 1,675 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in 14 games.

Virginia Gov. McAuliffe Restores voting rights for 206K Ex-Violent & Nonviolent Felons with a Pen to Boost Democrat Votes for Hillary Clinton
UNREAL, DEMOCRATS NEED FELON VOTE TO WIN ELECTIONS …
Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons. Sorry to be so cynical that a democrat would pull such a pandering move during a presidential year. Imagine that, Democrats pandering to the rapist and child sex offender. SICK!!! Really, passing this BS off as a way of rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power. Maybe its Gov. Terry McAuliffe who is the felon who needs to be imprisoned.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power.
The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.
The governor’s order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday, even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none has done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.
A NOTE TO ALL MORONS … DON’T EVEN THINK OF THREATENING TO BOMB A PRESIDENTIAL RALLY. A FURTHER NOTE TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA GENERATION, ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
20 year old Sean Taylor Morkys has been taken into custody and arrested after threatening to bomb Saturday’s rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Waterbury, Connecticut. Morkys is charged with first-degree threatening, inciting injury to person or property, and second-degree breach of peace. As The Right Scoop opines, don’t even make a joke about bombing a presidential rally, “the Secret Service doesn’t take those “jokes” very well.”
A 20-year-old man is in custody after threatening to bomb Saturday’s rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Waterbury.
At about 12:45 p.m., the United States Secret Service contacted the Connecticut State Police after seeing a threat posted on Twitter threatening to “bomb” the rally for Trump.
According to state police, the Twitter post said, “Is someone going to bomb the Trump rally or am I going to have to?”
A second Twitter post warned the suspect’s friend to have his family members leave the rally so they wouldn’t be hurt. Detectives found that the Twitter posts came from the area of Ardsley Road in Waterbury from the account of Sean Taylor Morkys.
The U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission confirmed the discovery of the single-engine vessel on which Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, both 14. The 19-foot Seacraft vessel was found March 18 by the Norwegian ship Edda Fjord about 100 miles off the coast of Bermuda or about 1,000 miles from where Stephanos and Cohen were last seen before setting off on their fishing trip. The boat was discovered off Bermuda nearly eight months after they vanished on July 24, 2015. Their vessel had initially been found by the Coast Guard two days after the teens were last seen; however, although Coast Guard rescuers located it near New Smyrna Beach, the vessel wasn’t secured and floated away. Now the boat has finally been found.
A marine supply store sticker and engine serial number helped authorities identify the boat of two Florida teens who went missing at sea last summer.
The discovery of the single-engine vessel on which Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, both 14, got lost at sea during a burst of severe weather on July 24 was confirmed Saturday by the U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
The 19-foot Seacraft vessel was found March 18 by the Norwegian ship Edda Fjord about 100 miles off the coast of Bermuda, Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss said in a statement. There was no immediate indication of what happened to the missing boys.
The boat, which was in the shipping lane, was removed from the water by the crew of Norwegian ship, according to Doss. Personal items were found on board, including a cell phone and plastic tackle boxes.
The marine store sticker and engine serial number helped identify the owner, Doss said.
Former MLB pitching great Curt Schilling goes off on ESPN after his firing and the Leftist hypocritical double standard at ESPN. Schilling was basically fired for saying why do we have a urinal in a men’s room, if it were not meant for those with a penis. Period, end of story. But thst is not the way it works in today’s political correct world where certain bands of minorities get to act like the thought police and the Gestapo. During his interview Friday with Steven Crowder, Schilling made a rather interesting and profound comment which explains 100% why we all have to deal with such nonsense like this today. Schilling asked, “when did people believe that the world is supposed to conform around them? Instead of you conforming to the world you live in. Or shaping yourself to the world you live in. People now expect the world to shape itself for you.”
Schilling then went on to say, “we have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else.” And thus Curt Schilling was fired from ESPN. So you think, that’s no big deal. But you will think its a big deal when it becomes you.
Retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling responded Friday to being fired from ESPN for sharing a controversial meme on transgender bathroom laws, telling conservative personality Steven Crowder that “nothing” he said was transphobic.
“I responded to a Facebook post that someone else had made. I responded to it and my response was basically men’s rooms were clearly designed for men, who stand up when they go pee and women’s rooms were not,” Schilling said. ”Anyway, that turned out to be ‘transphobic.’”
Schilling was fired from EPSN Wednesday after he ignited uproar with a Facebook post about the “basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms.” The legendary pitcher told Crowder that the post “wasn’t public,” but said he stood by his message.
“My point was, what the hell was a urinal made for?” he rhetorically asked. “Listen, men’s rooms were made for men to go to the bathroom standing up and women’s rooms were not. … But again, now I became transphobic.”
“Here’s the thing: This is how we have gotten to where we are. We have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else,” Schilling said. “And now it drives all of our political agendas.”
“Here’s the thing: I don’t care — if there was a transgender march down my street to have transgender bathrooms, I wouldn’t go out and watch it and I wouldn’t care that they are having it!” the former Boston Red Sox pitcher said. “I want homeless veterans to have homes. I want orphaned and abused kids to have homes. I want the homeless problem in this country to be solved. There are so many other things that are actually legitimately scary and dangerous, like ISIS.”
According to a FOX News poll ahead of the all important Indiana primary, Donald Trump leads by 8 points. According to the polls Trump has 41%, Ted Cruz is second with 33% and John Kasich is a distant third with 16%. Interestingly enough, without Kasich in the race, it’s 44 % for Trump and 42% for Cruz.Trump appears to lead among likely male and female voters over Cruz.
Full poll results can be found HERE.
Trump is ahead of Cruz by an eight-point margin among Indiana likely Republican primary voters: 41-33 percent. That’s at the edge of the poll’s plus or minus four point margin of sampling error. John Kasich comes in third with 16 percent.
Men are the key to Trump’s advantage. He receives 44 percent to Cruz’s 33 percent, while Kasich takes 13 percent.
Among women, Trump ekes out a three-point edge (36-33 percent), while 20 percent back Kasich.
Cruz is preferred over Trump among self-described “very” conservative GOP primary voters (46-35 percent).
The vote among white evangelical Christians splits: 41 percent Cruz vs. 39 percent Trump. This stands in sharp contrast to nearby Wisconsin, where the Fox News exit poll showed Cruz winning this group by a wide 22-point margin (55-33 percent).

MTV plans to put the MUSIC back in MTV …
As reported at the LA Times, What’s old is new: MTV plots a major return to music. Wow, imagine that, MTV finally realizes after a terrible past 25 years of programming that the “M” in MTV actually stands for music. I have to admit and I am about to date myself, I remember the very first day and song that MTV hit TV. How can you forget the music video, Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles. In 1981 it was a ground breaking event when a 24 hour music television was born. And yes, I had such a crush on Martha Quinn
Then MTV decided to go the way of the dodo and do everything and anything except music. They had an opportunity to ride the wave and they went the wrong direction. However, for MTV is probably too late and too much innovation has taken place since 1981, because just as Video killed the Radio star, the Internet and social media may have killed MTV.
MTV’s original show
For much of the modern era, the word music in the MTV acronym has been an afterthought, a vestige of an earlier time and identity.
That’s all about to change.
Under the guidance of new President Sean Atkins, the youth network is embarking on a redo that will put music at its center.
With ratings flat or down in a number of time periods, MTV is turning to songs as its savior. The network is prepping a new version of its classic “Unplugged”; a music competition show in the world of hip-hop produced by Mark Burnett; and an L.A.-set live-music series titled “Wonderland.” The last one is MTV’s first such program in about two decades.
Though much of the network’s success this century has come via nonscripted series with little connection to bands (“Jersey Shore,” “The Hills”)–and though original scripted programming remains the rage across much of the cable dial — MTV believes it will fare better by returning to its roots.
“The thing that kept coming back when I first started this job was, ‘Why doesn’t MTV do more music?” Atkins said in an interview. “Music is our muse, our spirit animal. And it’s a great muse to have. So we’re leaning into it.”
