The National Scene-Political and Cultural Tidbits from Across the Fruited Plains. The 10/15/15 Edition.

8,000 show up in Oregon to tell President Obama to stop making their tragedy political. The Media remains silent. But not on this Blog post which many more national tidbits.

I love to write about local politics but meanwhile national stuff is happening that requires my thought and input. Be patient with me, the reading and smiles will be worth it.
Ben Carson has a lovely wife

We met The Donald’s wife. Now we meet Ben Carson’s wife and what a delightful person she is!


HERE’s a video of Candy Carson who is being billed as the “anti-Michelle Obama”.



It happened in Oklahoma in the dead of the night.

How pathetic is this?

I am not making this up, no pork products in federal prisons.

They say it’s because the prisoners don’t like pork so much.

The ban started with the new fiscal year, which began October 1, and is attributed by the bureau to prisoners not liking pork. Surveys over recent years have found prisoners like pork least of all meats, and it is too costly, prison bureau spokesman Edmond Ross told the Post.

Come on! They don’t like bacon? Who doesn’t like bacon? No pork chops? No ham?

Nah. This is President Obama making his co-Muslims happy.

Here’s an interesting Tidbit

delritenatlridbits10.16.15This Wayne Simmons fellow has been found guilty of lying about his service with the CIA in order to work as a contractor for the government.

On Dec 29, 2009, Wayne Simmons gave a TV interview, on which he stated “Islamic Terrorists do not fear the “Boy King” Obama!” He has often referred to the 2008 election as “The Coronation of The Boy King.” My guess is Simmons has been on the White House radar and Enemy List ever since those broadcasts. Now they get to give him the Petraeus Treatment.

Now myself and yon readers know that there is much lying about military service NOT served…..”stolen valor” in other words.

And Mr. Simmons, if he lied, is in the wrong.

I’m thinking it’s about more than lying, that’s it’s a lot about saying bad things about Obama and getting into trouble for same. The “Petraeus Treatment” as the quote says, a quote copied from a public FreeRepublic commenter.

A Story Grossly underplayed by the media

Not that anyone’s surprised, but the story sayss almost 8,000 people showed up to tell President Obama to go home.

Hardly a word from the Lamestream media about such a blatant flipping of the bird to this endlessly political president.


Heh, Just some snark below

Below is a quote from a commenter on a news board….nothing official. I am told she said this to Anderson Cooper on CNN.

Donna Brazile (African-American)…CNN commentator…just said that Hillary Clinton is a sista! She is married to the first black president…what? I can’t believe that she can keep a straight face saying what she just said! Donna, your thought process is seriously flawed. I am sure if Hillary wins…you will get a nice cabinet position!

Trey Gowdy takes on Elijah Cummings and while we’re on the subject…

delritenationscenegowdyandenemy10.10.15The missive written in response to some hellacious lie that Elijah Cummings put out about the Benghazi hearings and good for Trey Gowdy for responding with firmness all to often not present in the Republican party. Although I admit that the public, what with the debates and everything, have glazed eyes over Benghazi with Hillary’s emails becoming more open to the public eyes.

Further it was you, not the Republicans, who has selectively leaked false information to promote your own false narrative. …..and so on.

Just a small quote from Gowdy’s response to Cummings’ assertions that the Republicans are politicizing Benghazi to hurt Hillary.

Yon readers probably heard about the currently ongoing, but evidently stalled, race to fill the Speaker seat in America’s House? At first it was assuredly going to be Kevin McCarthy. Then we hear Paul Ryan, all the time, Paul Ryan.

McCarthy hurt himself for the very fact that he set Cummings up for a victory lap. For McCarthy, in some ill-advised comment about accomplishments of the current GOP, he mentioned how the Republicans have help bring down Hillary’s polls via the Benghazi hearings.

Or something.

It wasn’t very smart of McCarthy and I don’t know what’s going on with Paul Ryan , who, tentatively, I’d have been okay with.

Britt Hume of Fox news made some interesting comments recently. It seems that it requires some 258 votes in the House to be named Speaker. Allegedly McCarthy, with time passing and information coming out, was considered not so good by the various patriot groups, the base of the party…ie. Britt said that if 218 Repub reps were in favor of McCarthy, as alleged repeatedly, and only 40 were considered Tea Party types and vehemently anti-Mccarthy…again as political pundits have been alleging…WHO ARE THE REAL RINOS?

The 218 who like establishment McCarthy, or the 40 against? I guess the comment was meant to make us think about it.

And so I did. I don’t know the answer. I am still waiting to see who will be the next Speaker.
I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.

Please feel free to email me at if you want to send me a special comment or have any ideas or information you want to share.

NEXT : Sunday political talk show thread coming up, got a Delaware tidbits almost written and some more national scenes.

    Jews don’t eat pork either, Pat, but, hey, nobody gives a crap what they want either.

    I always wondered why Pat didn’t respond to comments on her posts. Now I know. It’s hard to defend the indefensible. And while I rarely agree with Frank, at least he tries to get his facts straight. Sorry, Pat, but you’re an embarrassment.

    The MSM did cover the Oregon protests – WSJ, NBC, USA Today, MSN, CNN, The Guardian, etc.. You’d know this if you did 5 seconds of research.

    And why were the 10 commandments removed? You okay with satanic monuments on government land? You better be. Believe it or not, Pat, the USA does not have a national religion. Guess you didn’t know that either.

    Fish Bites covers the pork situation. You can debate this (which you didn’t, btw), but going all Tea Party on Muslims and Obama says a hell of a lot more about your idiocy.

    Mr. Simmons lied – there’s no “if” about it.

    You also have no idea who Donna Brazile is. If you did you would completely understand her comment. Seriously, learn how to use Google.

    Here’s what Kevin McCarthy said, “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee, [and] what are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened.”

    And then Richard Hanna (R-NY) added, “This may not be politically correct, but I think that there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people — an individual: Hillary Clinton.”

    Stop blaming everyone else for your guys’ words.

    And Ryan, who has Presidential aspirations, doesn’t want the Speakership because you can’t govern conservative crazy – just like you can’t herd cats.

    You may not comment on your posts, but could you at least do your homework before you write?
