Distracted and screwed again by potus...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

So while we were all glued to Hillary announcing that she’s running for POTUS again, the Dallas PD Headquarters being shot up and the perp killed, Jurassic World opened to audiences, and keeping his campaign “promise” churning, POTUS opened the doors of Gitmo once again to release six more really bad dudes.

“Six detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention center, including two alleged Usama bin Laden bodyguards, have been transferred to Oman, the Pentagon said Saturday.”

I never cease to be stunned by his hubris and total lack of regard for the safety of US Citizens and military personnel, not to mention the combined Congress’ complete failure in stopping him.

Disgusted I am, disgusted with the whole lot of them.  Yeah, the election of 2014 made a big difference.

John Tyler, 10th POTUS, living grandchildren

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Okay, I don’t care who you are, this is just plain interesting, if not amazing.  John Tyler, the 10th President of the U.S. has two living grandsons.  

I’d venture to guess that most people would have to check a history book to even prove to themselves that he was the president at one time….back in 1841 to be exact.  

So how exactly does a man, Mr. President, who was born in 1790, have surviving grandchildren?

It goes like this.  The Tyler men have a tendency to procreate often and later in years, and Mr. President started that by siring 15 children.  One of those children, Lyonwas born in 1853 when the president was 63.  Lyon also had a gaggle of children.  Two of those children are Lyon, Jr. and Harrisonborn in 1924 and 1928 respectively.  

Both are still alive as of this date.  I just love historical trivia, don’t you?

We're drowning in debt....save the Sage Grouse!!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  I really believe that POTUS must have some sort of standing orders in the WH to bring him a daily dose of nonsense that he can choose from to twist into his destructive agenda.  

At a time when we are, among other things, near financial ruin and in desperate need of being energy independent, they found another critter to save that prevents the tapping of our resources.  

I guess it’s understandable though.  I cannot remember the last time I was at a social gathering when the plight of the Greater Sage Grouse wasn’t on everyone’s mind.  

Give me a break!

Fox News:  The Obama administration disclosed plans Thursday to preserve the habitat of the imperiled greater sage grouse in 10 Western states that would include placing limits on oil and natural gas drilling.

The proposal would be the federal government's biggest land-planning effort to date for conservation of a single species. The regulations would require oil and gas wells to be clustered in groups of a half-dozen or more to avoid scattering them across habitat of the greater sage grouse. 

Drilling near breeding areas would be prohibited during mating season, and power lines would be moved away from prime habitat to avoid serving as perches for raptors that eat sage grouse.

The new measures would apply to federal lands in California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.

Speaker "pot" Boehner calling out the "kettle" again

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  I have to say it; Speaker of the House John Boehner has a knack for calling the kettle black.  Just about a year ago, the pompous speaker decided to label Edward Snowden a traitor and I blasted him for it in this article.  

The jury is still out on Mr. Snowden's status as a traitor, but Mr. Speaker, you are still not one to throw stones.  

Mr. Speaker, you actually have the gonads to get upset with the leadership of the VA?!  Your underwear is really all in a wad because “Just one person has been fired.  One.”  Really?!  Who have you fired that needs it?!

John…John, John, John!  Give a listen; like so many in DC, you need to wake up and smell the fed up!  

Since long before shall I say the less than honest election of 2012, and throughout the whole election cycle of 2014, We the People have screamed for answers and change.  We overwhelmingly voted in the “party of conservatives” by not only keeping your precious majority in the House, but also giving you back the majority in the Senate.

We gave you a mandate to finally start doing what We the People demanded you do.  Not only are we no better off since you got “all the power,” we are getting worse off by the day.  Instead of stopping the worst and most treasonous POTUS in our history, you continue to give him free “reign.”  

Do you think we didn’t notice that the new AG is absolutely no different than the old?  Not her race, mind you, but her ideology.  Do you think that the vast majority of Americans that are looking for real leadership don’t notice all the other stuff?!  Do you think the vast majority of us are not scared to death that our nation is on a rapid moral decline and you in government are literally bringing the wrath of God upon us?!  Just so you can get re-elected?!  

In just a few short days SCOTUS is going to rule on the whole “gay marriage” thing; no one really expects them to do any less than kick that door of our moral decline more ajar.  In the span of a mere handful of years we have gone from DOMA to “No” MA and our government on every level has let us down for the sake of keeping their cushy jobs.  

Do us all a favor Mr. Speaker and Mr. McConnell…give that House Gavel and Majority seat to someone with some testosterone.  And try to do it without crying.  Yeesh.

Here’s what got my underwear in a bunch…

Fox News:  House Speaker John Boehner tore into Veterans Affairs leadership Wednesday, alleging that nearly a year after then-Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned amid the scandal over veterans care, his successors have done little to fix the agency -- or even discipline those involved in the wait-times crisis. 

"Just one person has been fired. One," Boehner said in a scathing House floor speech. "What the hell happened to the rest of them? " 

He appealed for the agency to take care of America's veterans as well as they take care "of the bureaucrats."

Oldest Vet still going strong at 109

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  “Mighty fine at 109” indeed.  At 109, Richard Overton is officially America’s oldest living veteran.  During WWII, he answered the call of duty and served from 1942-1945 in the Pacific.

These days he keeps himself busy by working around “the yards” doing whatever he can to keep moving, and he still fires up 12 cigars a day.  

The Patriots Press joins the rest of America in wishing Mr. Overton a very special Happy Birthday. Thank you for you service sir.

Fox News:  Richard Overton feels a "little stiff" from time to time and he's cut out the whiskey but other than that, he feels pretty good.  Not bad for America's oldest living military veteran, who turned 109 on Monday.

“I get around pretty good, just get a little stiff. I'm doing all right, I guess," Overton told FoxNews.com, as he waited at his Austin, Texas, home for a car to pick him up to take him to meet Gov. Greg Abbott.
