This a truly outstanding performance at the National Air and Space Museum.
I recommend a full screen and full volume.

In an epic fail of the “knockout game,” an unidentified young black man attempts to play the game.
Apparently he didn’t understand the rules and got his narrow ass knocked out.
The highly entertaining video follows.

Loved the hashtag so much, Lawrence, I borrowed it for this post.
In the immediate aftermath of Morales’s anti-gay allegations against a New Jersey couple who dined in her section at the Gallop Asian Bistro, many supporters began showing up at the restaurant with “monetary contributions.”
But an investigation by Bridgewater Patch discovered that, as of today, no donations to the nonprofit have been made in Morales’s name, nor were any donations made from any ZIP codes in the Bridgewater area.
This wouldn’t be the first lie Morales ever told.
In fact, friends have since described Moralesas a compulsive liar, and say she made up stories about having brain cancer and claimed her home was damaged during Sandy.
According to a Marines spokesman, Morales also never served in Afghanistan despite claiming she was the sole survivor of an explosion that took out her entire platoon.
Moreover, she was dishonorably discharged for missing drills.
The Daily Caller’s brutal take down:
Come on, people, Ms. Morales was a Marine. (Well, a reservist. Who was dishonorably discharged for failing to show up for drills.) She survived a plane crash in Afghanistan that wiped out her whole platoon. (She never served there, but whatever.) She’s a Hurricane Sandy survivor. (Who was never in any danger.) And she’s a brain cancer survivor! (Okay, maybe not.)
Fine. Forget all that, then. The fact remains: She’s gay.
This is happening all-too-frequently these days — where a supposed hate crime is reported and then breathlessly and relentlessly covered by the grievance industry, only to find out that the person either flat-out lied about the incident, or committed the crime themselves.
UPDATE: When I first started compiling bookmarks and sources for this post, Dayna, the EX Marine, had not yet been fired from her waitress job. That has since been remedied.
I’ve said it all along that the end game of anti-gun, anti-second amendment Liberals is gun confiscations from US Citizens. Despite this, dishonest Liberals always respond with, “Ah, man…we just want common sense gun restrictions. Nobody is coming for your guns.”
Uh huh. Right up to the point where they start confiscating guns, like they’re now doing in the People’s Republik of New York City:
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences.
New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners.
“It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are unlawful to possess in New York City, as per NYC Administrative Code 10-306 (b).”
“You have the following options,” the letter explains.
“1. Immediately surrender your Rifle and/or Shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter.
2. Permanently remove your Rifle and/or Shotgun from New York City and provide the following…Disposition Report/Registration Certificate…Notarized statement of permanent removal…Utility bill or other proof of residency regarding the address where the firearm will be stored outside the City of New York.
3. You may call to discuss the matter if you believe your firearm is in compliance…”
UPDATE (Monday morning) —
Reading tweets from reporters in the courtroom, and so far this trial is making Rosemary look even worse (if that’s possible). The testimony from the officers involved in her arrest and booking making a strong case for her removal from office.
So far Lehmberg’s attorney’s line of defense is “…everything that happened that night is because my client was really, really drunk.”
Disgraced drunkard and Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg goes on trial tomorrow to determine if she’s fit to continue serving as the Travis County DA (regardless of what the outcome of her trial, the answer is a definitive Hell No!, she’s not fit).
Eight months after she was arrested for drunk driving, Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg will go to trial tomorrow. An out-of-county judge will hear the evidence concerning whether she is emotionally able to continue in office, and if she has an addiction.
Well, we know she’s not emotionally fit to continue in office based on 1) her abuse of power and mistreatment of the arresting officers, and 2) the fact that she’s a Liberal, which is severe emotional disorder in its own right.
As to the question of whether or not she has an addiction, the xxx old drunk went through 72 bottles of vodka from just one liquor store in a 15 month period.
As I wrote then, those 72 bottles of vodka from one Twin Liquors store don’t tell the whole tell of how bad of an addiction to alcohol this woman has:
State District Court Judge David Peeples, who has handled several removal cases in South Texas, will rule in Lehmberg’s case after she waived her right to a jury trial. His decision could come by the end of the week. Judge Peeples was appointed by Gov. Rick Perry. IN case you’re wondering if Judge Peeples can be fair in this trial, even the far left-leaning Center for Public Policy Priorities think tank in Austin says, “he’s a judge that applies the law. He’s not driven by an ideology.”
Folks went onto Covered California, which is California’s health exchange, to shop for health insurance or compare plans and prices. Not a whole lot of folks signed up (mostly because of the rapey prices and through-the-roof deductibles), but that didn’t stop Covered California from violating their privacy:
Raising concerns about consumer privacy, California’s health exchange has given insurance agents the names and contact information for tens of thousands of people who went online to check out coverage but didn’t ask to be contacted.
The names provided include people who started an insurance application on the Covered California website since enrollment launched Oct. 1, but for whatever reason never picked a health plan or completed the sign-up process.
The state said it provided information on tens of thousands of people who logged into the state’s website, but it didn’t know the exact number.
The exchange said agents were given names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses if available.
There’s no telling what else these corrupt Rule 17 (“Do whatever it fucking takes”) corrupt-o-crats are doing with your private information. I wouldn’t be surprised if they compared the list to voter registration roles, and signed up those currently not registered to vote, and registered them as Democrats.
This comes on the heels of reports that Covered California is — wait for this huge shocker — lied about the number of California doctors participating in the exchange:
Only in September did insurance companies disclose that their rates would be pegged to California’s Medicaid plan, called Medi-Cal. That’s driven many doctors to just say no.
They’re also pointing out that Covered California’s website lists many doctors as participants when they aren’t.
“Some physicians have been put in the network and they were included basically without their permission,” Lisa Folberg said. She is a CMA’s vice president of medical and regulatory Policy.
“This is a dirty little secret that is not really talked about as they promote Covered California,” Waters said. He called the exchange’s doctors list a “shell game” because “the vast majority” of his doctors are not participating.
Independent insurance brokers who work with both insurance companies and doctor networks estimate that about 70 percent of California’s 104,000 licensed doctors are boycotting the exchange.
How far away are we from Democrat-led governments passing laws requiring doctors to participate in their healthcare scams? At the very least, these non-participating doctors should be expecting a call from the IRS in the very near future.
Was out running some errands this morning, and noticed that the US Flags at the entrance to our neighborhood were at half-staff. I was momentarily confused, wondering is today December 7th (anniversary of Pearl Harbor)? ‘Cause that would make sense. Checked my calendar and, nope, today’s the 6th.
So that wasn’t it.
When I saw more flags flaying at half-staff at the local school and post office, I wondered if a Senator or Supreme Court Justice had passed away over night and I had yet to hear the news.
Then it occurred to me that, holy-freak’n shit, the flags — the Flag of the United States of America — was flying at half-staff for Nelson Mandela.
And that pisses me off six days to Sunday.
The honor of having our nation’s flag flown at half-mast should be reserved for Americans. Period.
As I sat there at the red light, see the Stars and Stripes lowered to half-staff, I remembered that Obama did not order flags lowered for perhaps the greatest warrior of our generation and a true American hero, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. I’m sorry, but if you can’t lower the flags to honor the death of a man and an American like Chris Kyle ,then there’s simply no way you lower the flag for a South African Communist…even if he is the mostly-beloved Nelson Mandela.
Yes, I understand that US Flag Code allows the President, by proclamation, to order the flags flown at half-staff “after the death of other officials or foreign dignitaries,” but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with it. My flag, flying from my front porch is at full-staff, as it should be. I’ll lower it tomorrow in honor of the Americans who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Probably. Obama does love him some fellow communists (or socialists, or Marxist).
Serious question: Is there anything — no matter how big, how small, how important, or how trivial — that Obama won’t lie about? Or, more accurately, that he hasn’t lied about?
From “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period”, to “Bill Ayers? Never heard of ‘em.”, to “I never heard Rev. Wright’s anti-American spittle in the 20 years I attended his church” — it seems that every single thing Obama has ever said is a lie.
I mean, hell, the man lied about his mother’s cancer and insurance to make a political point.
So…it should really come as no surprise that Obama has been caught in another lie, this time about his uncle.
— AnnaZ (@AnnaZ) December 5, 2013
The White House acknowledged Thursday that President Obama lived with his uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while he was a student at Harvard Law School — despite previously saying there was no record of the two having met.
“The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement. “After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10. ”
Onyango “Omar” Obama faced a deportation hearing earlier this week following a drunk-driving arrest. During the hearing, he said that the president had lived with him while he was a student at Harvard.
Barack Obama is a liar, on lots of things. We've gone from "I never met this uncle" to "oh, I lived with this uncle" http://t.co/RVJsEtH5SG
— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) December 5, 2013
RT @RBPundit: Bill Ayers, never hearing Rev. Wright spew anti-Americanism, and now Uncle Omar? And that's just lies about his personal life.
— Bryan Preston (@texasbryanp) December 5, 2013
So WH denied Obama knew Onyango. But: "Nobody spoke to the president.' Now, turns out the two actually lived together briefly in 1980s.
— Byron York (@ByronYork) December 5, 2013
But who coulda guessed about this uncle? It's not like Obama's the kinda guy that'd lie about his mother's cancer coverage for politics.
— Mary Katharine Ham (@mkhammer) December 5, 2013
I don’t even really care if Obama and Omar were racket ball partners for 15 years, it’s the nonstop lying with these guys…
— John Ekdahl (@JohnEkdahl) December 5, 2013
Now, I know all you sycophant Obama-but boys will say that this is just a little white lie that doesn’t really matter. And, if this were the only thing he’s lied to us about, I’d be inclined to agree but…
Obama has been caught in yet another lie, this one involving his uncle. It’s a minor lie, but part of a major pattern of self-serving lying.
— Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) December 5, 2013
EXACTLY! It’s the patter of lies…how easily the lies come flowing from his face. Why the need to lie about everything? It’s almost like his entire life is a lie. Almost…
@kesgardner no lie is minor in the Oval Office. Its not afforded.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), via his Facebook page: Harry Reid on Obamacare: “Get over it. It’s the law.” Then he exempts top staff members who worked to pass it.
This could all be prevented with one very simple amendment to our constitution, which I’m certain would garner nearly unanimous and bi-partisan support from citizens across the nation: Congress can enact no law from which they or their staff are exempt. And, conversely, Congress can enact no law which grants them special rights or privileges not also granted to all citizens.
Via CNN Politics:
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges.
It's despicable that Harry Reid is exempting his staff from #Obamacare while at the same time forcing it on Americans

— Mark (@mtsuneishi) December 4, 2013
Oh yes he did!
Go read Amanda Carpenter’s irate timeline right how (she’s a Senate staffer forced into the exchanges):
Reid's leadership staff helped usher this bill thru Senate, made the votes happen. And now they are exempt? They don't want their own law!
— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) December 4, 2013
Gee, why don't Reid's leadership staffers want to enroll in Obamacare? The higher costs? The crappier coverage? Losing doctors? What is it?!

UPDATE: He’s dead, Jim.
I wrote about Jerry Martin back in 2007 when he initially escaped from a Huntsville prison, where he was serving 50 years for two charges of attempted capital murder. Martin and another inmate, John Ray Falk Jr. killed a prison guard during the escape.
His two charges of attempted capital murder didn’t get him the death sentence. This subsequent capital murder did. And tomorrow evening, some time just after 6:00 p.m. HTT, he’ll pay for his crimes with his life.
Martin and an accomplice, John Ray Falk Jr., were part of a work detail in the prison onion field at the Wynne Unit in Huntsville when Martin used a ruse to get near a guard, stole the guard’s .357 revolver and tossed it to Falk. The two inmates then climbed a fence where, on the other side, 59-year-old Canfield was on horse-mounted patrol. Falk struggled with her and stole her rifle while Martin stole a pickup truck parked nearby. Martin drove that truck into Canfield and her horse, pitching her onto the windshield. She sustained head injuries and reportedly died immediately. Martin and Falk then drove a short distance, abandoned the pickup truck, and carjacked a woman in a bank parking lot. After police shot out a tire in that vehicle, the pair fled on foot. Falk was picked up within the hour and Martin was found three and a half hours later, hiding in a tree.
It’s not often (ever?) that I write about a crime when it happened, and then also get to write about the execution of the convicted criminal. I mean, my blog’s only been around for just a bit over 10 years, and most inmates spend a lot longer than that on death row. Apparently murdering one of the guards paid to watch over you gets you a date with the needle a little quicker than most crimes.
Again, this crime is a perfect reason why I support the death penalty over “life” for these dangerous animals:
There’s a lot of folk on the anti-side who think that we should just lock these dangerous animals up for the rest of their lives instead of putting them to death for their capital murders.
The problem with that is that good, honest, and innocent people have to guard them, provide them medical care, feed them, and counsel them. And every so often, if given even a moments opportunity, they will kill these innocent people too.
