Harry Reid Had a Nasty Exercising Accident That Left Him With ‘a Number’ of Broken Bones, Including a Broken Face

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D- Nev.)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) [not for long] fell and broke “a number of ribs and bones in his face” after an exercise accident in his home on Thursday, his office said.

“On Thursday, Senator Reid received treatment at University Medical Center in Las Vegas for injuries sustained in an accident he suffered while exercising at home in Henderson,” his office said in a statement Friday morning. “A piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face.”

According to the New York Times, Reid was using a rubber exercise band that snapped and hit him, causing him to fall.

“Senator Reid will return to Washington this weekend and be in the office Tuesday as the Senate prepares to reconvene. His doctors expect a full recovery,” Reid’s office said. “Senator Reid was first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson by his security detail. He was then transferred to UMC for further testing, where he was admitted overnight as a precaution.”

Reid is 75. In 2011, he dislocated his shoulder and got a bump on his head after he slipped and fell while running in the rain.

In a tweet sent out Friday afternoon, Reid said, “Thanks to everyone for the warm wishes. I’m ready to get back to work.”

White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Friday that President Barack Obama called Reid “to wish him a full and speedy recovery.”

“The president was glad to hear the leader is doing well, and will be back in Washington this weekend,” Schultz added.

Historical analogies may be inaccurate, but Americans may need to look at their own civil war and compare it to what is happening in Ukraine now. Today the US supports a murderous criminal adventure that has little to do with unifying the country.

This assessment came from Professor Stephen Cohen, prominent US scholar of Russian studies and author, who advised George H.W. Bush in the late 1980s. He spoke to RT about the mistakes of the consecutive American administrations in their Russia policies, the worst crisis in decades that they led to and the deterioration of political discourse in America that prevents things from changing in Washington.

Cohen challenged the narrative of the Ukrainian events dominating in the US, calling the military crackdown by the government an “unwise, reckless, murderous, inhuman campaign that Kiev is conduction against what are admittedly rebel provinces.”

“Lincoln never called the Confederacy terrorists,” the scholar pointed out. “He always [called them], no matter how bad the civil war was, fellow citizens he wanted to come back to the union. Why is Kiev calling its own citizens terrorists? They are rebels. They are protesters. They have a political agenda. Why isn’t Kiev sending a delegation there to negotiate with them?

“Their demands are not unreasonable. They want to elect their own governors – we elect our own governors. They want a say on where their taxes go – ‘no taxation without representation.’ We know what that is,” Cohen said. “There are extremists among them, but there are also people who simply want to live in a Ukraine that is for everybody. And instead the Kiev army, with the full support of the United States, is conducting this assault.”

‘Kremlin an essential ally Washington pushes away’

What the US doing with Ukraine now is alienating arguably the best potential ally it has now, Cohen said.

“I am convinced that the most essential partner for the American national security in all of these areas from Iran to Syria, Afghanistan and beyond is the Kremlin, currently occupied by Putin. And the way the United States has treated Putin – I would call it a betrayal of American national interest.” (more…)

World War II: Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto regarding the 1941 attack on the U.S Navy Fleet at Pearl Harbor by forces of Imperial Japan:

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

That was putting it mildly. We all know how that war ended for the Japs, Nazis and their allies, don’t we?

Now let’s see how Obama and the libtard left deal with America’s 26 million well-trained now civilian warriors whom they have shamefully and tyrannically dishonored, disrespected, and pissed off beyond measure. This problem isn’t going away anytime soon and I suspect this could be the left’s Waterloo.

oath-keeper-patch-englishI’m proud to say that I am one of those 26 million veterans and I support them 100 percent. Our oath was to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, not the government, and this oath never expires.

Talk about a well-trained (and well-armed) militia, we’re it folks!

5.5 Million Vets Get Behind Newest Rally
Coalition blames Washington for targeting military members, families, survivors

Veterans have rallied against the federal government’s actions in Washington several times lately, including over the weekend when they carried barricades – some called them “barrycades” – over to the White House lawn where they dumped them.

So have bikers.

So have truckers.

But now, according to a report in the Army Times, a group representing about 5.5 million Americans – service members, veterans, retirees and their families – will be rallying on Tuesday.

It will happen, again, at the World War II Memorial, where members of Congress in recent days have helped take down barricades erected by the National Park Service to keep military veterans away from the open-air memorial that is in their honor.

The Army Times report said the rally will be “aimed at embarrassing Congress and the White House into action.” (more…)

Obama to Boehner: No Deal on Debt Limit, Defunding Obamacare

OBoehnerPresident Barack Obama called House Speaker John Boehner late Friday and reiterated that he would not negotiate with Congress on raising the debt limit, a Boehner representative told Newsmax.

“The president called the speaker this evening to tell him he wouldn’t negotiate with him on the debt limit,” the spokesman said in a statement. “Given the long history of using debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan deficit reduction and economic reforms, the speaker was disappointed, but told the president that the two chambers of Congress will chart the path ahead.

“It was a brief call,” the Boehner spokesman said.

The president also called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the White House said. (snip)

Obama is still faltering after being punked by Putin over Syria the last few weeks. In an effort to regain his manhood, he’s puffing up and acting tough over the budget bill, and “acting” is the operative word.

If Obama and his shoeshine butt-boys want to try acting tough then let’s show them what tough really is. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, right? He’s a big pussy, so are the libtard Dems . . . pussies all around. Congress should take advantage of this lull while the budget bill Yo-Yo’s to the Senate and back and get busy delivering this lousy excuse for a president’s walking papers.

Fuck Obama! Let’s get the IMPEACHMENT BULLDOZER fired up and not shut it down until his arrogant ass is shoved back where it belongs — Kenya. It’s not like we don’t have a mountain of evidence with which to topple him. He breaks the law and violates our rights on a daily basis, not to mention all of his flubbed foreign policy issues and being the expediter of the murder of four brave Americans in Benghazi. Our U.S. Constitution draws a red line specifically for his type of behavior yet he’s crossed it numerous times and has come back unscathed. Are we going to pretend he hasn’t just like he pretended he never drew a red line with Syria? Dealing with this shit-bird is like eating jello with chop sticks.

He doesn’t give a shit about us and we don’t give a shit about him. This “budget battle” is all about power and politics and has nothing to do with them working for us. While the talking heads in Washington are playing grab ass and holding felching sessions, we get the shaft, and frankly I’ve had enough of their shit. If I must chose between solving the budget conundrum or watching Congress put Obama out of office, I’m going with the latter.

Know this, folks. Until comrade imam Obama is gone and the libtard Dems are eviscerated, this country is going nowhere except straight down the Islamic sharia shit pipe.

Race Baiters Are Racists

For those of you who have never heard of him, Booker Taliaferro Washington was a very prominent African-American educator, author, orator, and adviser to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. 

Booker_T_on_race_baiters

The behavior he is describing above is currently referred to as “race baiting” or “playing the race card.”

Mr. Washington lived from 1856 to 1915, so he was long dead when our current gaggle of race baiters came along. This gaggle contains, but is not limited to, Jesse Jackson; Al Sharpton; Louis Farrakhan; and, surprisingly as well as disappointingly, the newest member Oprah Winfrey.

Mr. Washington’s words describe them best.

[First, you might want to read our 22 Aug 2013 blog post: ‘A MILLION MUSLIMS SURROUNDED BY 2 MILLION HOGS!]

In spite of being rejected for a permit, these patriot Harley Hog riders are going anyway. I salute each and every one of them! Tomorrow should be one hell of a day.

So fuck off Washington, fuck off you Muslim crybabies, and fuck off Barry, Barack, Hussein, Soetoro or whatever the fuck your real African name is (not that we give a shit).

Just get your sorry asses ready for some Harley Rumble. You have no idea what’s headed your way.

D.C. throws up roadblock for patriotic bikers
Permit denied for rally to counter Muslim march

Thousands of bikers, maybe even tens or thousands or hundreds of thousands, will be “rallying” in Washington, D.C., Wednesday even though city officials reportedly denied them a permit for a straight-through drive that would have allowed them to travel quickly on roads that would have been blocked to cross-traffic.

Now, the bikers will be stopping at every stop sign or stop light, yielding to pedestrians wherever appropriate, and otherwise observing all traffic regulations.

These are the plans being confirmed today on Facebook and other social media mediums for the bikers who decided to rally at the same time the American Muslim Political Action Committee proposed what originally was billed as a “Million Muslim March,” which was given a permit.

The Muslim organization later changed the name to “Million American March Against Fear,” and where promoters initially said their march was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the years that ensued the al-Qaida terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil,” it later was changed.

Now the group says its goal is to “ask all individuals and organizations working for peace to attend this collective action to tell our government leaders we want transparency and policies of peace. In the past 12 years since 9/11 the United States government as failed to protect and promote constitutional liberties and human life, here and abroad. We feel that accountability in government has been ignored and the time has arrived to collectively speak truth to power.”

That was after an early statement from promoters that said, “On 9.11.01 our country was forever changed by the horrific events in New York. The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day. Muslim and non Muslim alike were traumatized but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.”

The issue of the denial of a permit for special accommodations for the bikers seems of little consequence to those attending.

At BizPacReview, writer Joe Saunders reported, “Denied a permit by the nation’s capital for a special ‘non-stop’ ride through town with a waiver for red lights, stop signs and other traffic controls, organizers of the ’2 Million Bikers to DC’ ride to remember 9/11 are undeterred.

“Just riding on a public street doesn’t take any special permission after all, even if you have a million people doing it. They just sought the permit to make life easier on the city’s residents and businesses.

“So the ride will go on. It’s just going to take a little longer.” (more…)

BIKERS TO COUNTER MUSLIM MARCH
Grass-roots movement plans to descend on Washington on 9/11

By Bob Unruh | WND

Muslims who have begun promoting a 9/11 march in Washington that originally was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the U.S.” and then turned into a “March Against Fear” may have some competition.

Loud competition. Very loud. And lots of it.

In what was a virtual impossibility before the Internet, a Facebook page has been created in which many individuals are coordinating what they have dubbed “2 Million Bikers to DC.”

At the Mr. Conservative blog, the author said: “The best way to counter bad speech is to oppose it with good speech. Sometimes ‘speech’ can be expressed simply by the number of people who are willing to show up to support a principle. That’s the view that hundreds of bikers (so far) across American have as they prepare to join a ’2 Million Biker Ride to DC’ to counter the planned Sept. 11 ‘Million Muslim March.’”

On the Facebook page, the community purpose is described as: “To honor those who were killed on 911 and our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack!” (more…)

"Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity.  I'm not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI.  They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can't wait to be their colleague again."

“Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity. I’m not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI. They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can’t wait to be their colleague again.”

President Obama recently nominated James Comey as director of the FBI. He said, praising him, “To know Jim Comey is also to know his fierce independence and his deep integrity.  Like Bob, he’s that rarity in Washington sometimes—he doesn’t care about politics, he only cares about getting the job done.  At key moments, when it’s mattered most, he joined Bob in standing up for what he believed was right.  He was prepared to give up a job he loved rather than be part of something he felt was fundamentally wrong.  As Jim has said, ‘We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.'”

Well that’s awfully damned magnanimous and self-sacrificing of good ol’ Jimmy boy… except he didn’t leave!  He stayed with the Justice Department for another year, even though he was certainly and undoubtedly aware of their continued efforts in the monitoring of the personal records of millions of Americans without the legal authority to do so. And, I might add, in direct contradiction to the Constitutional rights of those being targeted. Apparently the straight-out-of-their-ass legal theories proposed by the NSA’s attorneys was enough to keep our man “Jimmy boy” at his post.  Oh!  But that’s all right. As Jim has said, “We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.”

Ya think? (more…)
