  Are you Distracted? We Certainly Are

Sen. Joni Ernst Worried Obama Lowered Flag To Half Staff For Secret Muslin Reasons

Tinfoil flags are best
You may be astonished, as we were, to learn that conservatives are furious with Barack Obama for waiting Five Whole Days to order the flag to be flown at half staff in honor of the victims of last Thursday’s shootings in Chattanooga, which killed five members of the military. Obviously, Obama hates the military, since he only called the killings “heartbreaking” the day they happened, and didn’t immediately lower the flags himself. (By contrast, Obama ordered flags to half staff the day after the 2009 Fort Hood shooting.) But Sen. Joni Ernst thinks she may know what Obama’s up to: He’s trying to distract us all from Benghazi the Iran nuclear deal. Read more on Sen.

Mitt Romney Didn’t Ignore The Troops, He Said ‘Military’ Like Twice

When Mitt Romney (remember, the one running for president against Michelle Obama’s husband) spoke at the Republican National Convention, he mentioned pretty much everything that’s ever existed except America’s men and women in uniform. The liberal media turned this into A Thing, and so Mitt Romney took to Fox News to answer the question on everyone’s mind: Baier: To hear several speakers in Charlotte – and I don’t think this is a jump – they were essentially saying you don’t care about the U.S. military because you didn’t mention U.S. troops and the war in Afghanistan in your nomination acceptance speech. We understand you went to the American Legion the day before and you talked about the service and sacrifice of the military there. Do you regret opening up this line of attack, now a recurring attack, by leaving out that issue in the speech? Wait…the question is whether Romney regrets opening up the line of attack? Is this what you learn in the Hillsdale College Journalism School? What was the show production meeting like before this interview? PRODUCER: “Hey, Bret, ask Romney a question about the troop thing, but not actually about the troop thing.” BRET BAIER: “How about if I ask if he regrets letting Democrats attack him on it?” PRODUCER: “Perfect! Can you add some more quaver to your voice, though? Really sell it.” So, how did Romney answer this softball? Well, fucking terribly.

Run Really Fast and Win a Rifle At Georgia Race

The local police department and a Presbyterian church in Pooler, Georgia, are never-forgetting September 11 this year by co-hosting the Pooler 5K, a race and “Family Fun Mile Run” to benefit the Warriors in Transition unit of injured soldiers at the nearby Ft. Stewart army post. The runner with the fastest time wins a Daniel Defense M4 rifle — which, according to the gun’s official web page, is “built to redefine the benchmark in small arms performance” and offers “out of the box tactical supremacy.” And it’s made in the USA!

U.S. Troops Give Barack Obama Their Elitist ‘Money’

Oh ho ho: “According to an analysis of campaign contributions by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Democrat Barack Obama has received nearly six times as much money from troops deployed overseas at the time of their contributions than has Republican John McCain, and the fiercely anti-war Ron Paul, though he suspended his campaign for the Republican nomination months ago, has received more than four times McCain’s haul.” Wow. Barack Obama hates American troops so much that he takes all of their money! [OpenSecrets via AMERICAblog] Read more on U.S. Troops Give Barack Obama Their Elitist ‘Money’…
