August is a significant month for Muslims, Ramadan. Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar.
Concerns are being raised that August 9, this Sunday, could also be significant in light of the heightened terror threats - or anytime this month.
Wonder how Obama would handle the unthinkable. He thought we were all getting along so well and declared al-Qaeda on the run quite a number of times right before the election.
Maybe this is just another one of those phony crisis he talks about.

It's going to be the Democrats turn again in 2016 to defend the past eight years.
Wonder if a commentator will ask Hillary why she made up a story about landing under fire in enemy territory again like in 2008.
Her embarrassment in having to admit her embarrassment was palpable.
This time, she'll be asked why four dead Americans didn't make any difference to her.
Plus, someone will ask why a bimbo on her knees in the Oval Orifice didn't make any difference to her, either.

You keep coming back for more. So here it is.
Andrew Johnson became president following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson issued a proclamation of pardon and amnesty to citizens in the South who would take an oath of allegiance.
As part of the pardon process, lands confiscated during the war would be returned to white landowners. So while the Radical Republicans had fully intended for there to be a massive redistribution of land from former slave owners to former slaves under Reconstruction, Johnson's policy effectively thwarted that.
It has been estimated to approximately 40,000 former slaves received grants of land under Sherman's order. But the land was taken away from them.
Denied the opportunity to own their own small farms, most former slaves were forced to live under the system of sharecropping.
Life as a sharecropper generally meant living in poverty. And sharecropping would have been a bitter disappointment to people who once believed they could become independent farmers.

General Sherman's land plan was a scam that hoped to incite Southern slave revolts at the end of the Civil War. Sherman had no real authority to give land away to freed slaves. Only a full Congress in session could do that .

The Republican Party has a message for CNN and NBC: Stop with the Hillary Rodham Clinton shows, or no debates for you.
Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, on Monday sent blistering letters to the network bosses, calling their decision to air Clinton projects just as the 2016 White House campaign is heating up "disturbing and disappointing." And if the shows go forward, the GOP will cut CNN and NBC out of Republican debates during primary season leading up to the election.
Romney did so well in the debates ;-)
Republican primary debates seemed to damage the GOP
Republicans should refuse to participate with NBC/MSNBC regardless of the Hillary propaganda movie.

And no debates, ever, with Candy Crowley or Gwen Ifill.

You're more stupid than I thought in attacking the Washington Post. They had the two greatest investigative scoops of the century---Watergate and the NSA spying Prism program on American phone records.(FoxNews has never come close to anything like it --they can't lick the Washington Post's boots!)

Which stretches more, Tenzing's skin or his disrespectful Biblical allusions and sophomoric rhetoric?

Tenzing's skin. It says in the Bible that Tenzing tied his ass to a tree and walked 40 miles.

Hope Obama has a whole bunch of those remote drones hidden away somewhere. He's made it pretty clear he's not too keen on showing strength or building up our defenses militarily.

CNN might cave to Priebus' extortion, but NBC won't--they know that the GOP is desperate for public television exposure that might save their seriously low popularity ratings with the American people--the RNC will come begging well before 2014 to NBC.

Ironically, this sounds just like something the Magic Negro would do. Look at how he rewarded so many of the players who lost in the bubble that burst.

Johnson made powerful friends and so, too, did the Magic Negro.

After Zimmerman gets his pound of flesh off the racist NBC boobs, they might not be able to raise the Liberal Standard anymore.

They'll come crawling to the RNC for a paycheck.
