right-wing blogs we like

Well-written, and flaming.

A 9-11 truther is more wacked out than being a birther. The birther ship has long since sailed in spite of the Donald might want to try and stir up to no advantage- wish he'd put a sock in it.

Sadly, the constitution is not taken seriously by most politicians and judiciary based on some of the laws currently on the books and past SCOTUS decisions. That has been the case for the last 100+ years, so its nothing new. Woodrow Wilson started to bastardize the constitution (some claim Lincoln did that with the Civil War), followed by FDR, LBJ, Nixon and the list goes on. Maggie O'Connell should focus on that and less on the Kenya birthplace BS.

Obama actually promoted Kenya birthplace in a book written in 1991 when the author stated he was from Kenya upfront, so it might pick up sales. "Choom" Obama thought it sounded cool evidently, as he did not opt to have it changed.

KS blathers the bitter truth

SOURCE: The Daily Caller - by Jim Treacher

It’s just silly. Obama was born in Hawaii. It’s over, Birthers. But Donald didn’t get the memo. In an interview with the Daily Beast published today, he said:

“Look, it’s very simple,” said Trump, who has spent the past 13 months questioning Obama’s constitutional eligibility to occupy the White House (and only doubled down with his stubborn skepticism after Obama produced a long-form birth certificate, certifying he was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii, and then hilariously roasted him at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner). “A book publisher came out three days ago and said that in his written synopsis of his book,” Trump went on, “he said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. His mother never spent a day in the hospital.”

Donald. Bubbie. Yes, Obama did say that, but he was lying.

The part about being born in Kenya isn’t true. Obama made it up. He was fibbing. Prevaricating. Perpetuating a falsehood. Some would call it BS. A whopper. A statement that had no basis in reality. If it were possible for Obama’s buttocks to literally detach from his body as the result of a lie, that one would do it.

Puget Sound Blathers

Truthers and Birthers....yikes!

I do remember when Janine Turner was a brunette and she was gorgeous.

You all forgot her stellar work as Laura on General Hospital back in the day...


She needs to check back in to the hospital

David Tatelman

It's really sad that such a beautiful actress has gone to the dark side. I saw her Christian yoga schtick and it was ridiculous.

KS blathers the bitter truth

Actually, she is on the light side, as she is a platinum blonde. Up is down, right is left and the sunrise is sunset - right David ?


Victoria Jackson/Janine Turner: both has beens looking for a meal ticket

Mr. Whatever

Ahhh please. Everyone has an opinion. She only has a 2 hour show per week, and it's on Saturday. I've met Ms. Turner, she's a nice lady. Doesn't push her agenda when out in public. I'd sit down and have a beer and or coffee again with her. Don't have someone elses opinion sway yours.


It really no longer matters that Obama may be Kenyan. He came along when we needed a African-American to prove we are not a racist nation. The world now knows the truth about us.
This lady is now just another in the chattering class trying to get a pay check during these shitty times for our industry. Good for her. Looks like a little live and local in Texas. Remember those days here?

N in Seattle

Whether or not Maggie would have approved of Janine's schtick, you can be damn sure that Dr. Fleischman wouldn't.
