I’m sure Chelsea is proud of the “reporting” she did as a “reporter” for NBC News.
Don’t you remember all the ground breaking “reports” she filed?

Chelsea Clinton quits as NBC News reporter
Chelsea Clinton said today she is quitting her job as a reporter at NBC News, citing increased work at the Clinton Foundation and the imminent birth of her first child.
Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s daughter had been working at the network since 2011, sporadically doing feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work. Politico magazine reported earlier this year that NBC was paying her $600,000 a year.
Maybe now she can focus on income inequality.

Obama Fails History 101
President Obama doesn’t know much about history.
In his therapeutic 2009 Cairo speech, Obama outlined all sorts of Islamic intellectual and technological pedigrees, several of which were undeserved. He exaggerated Muslim contributions to printing and medicine, for example, and was flat-out wrong about the catalysts for the European Renaissance and Enlightenment.
He also believes history follows some predetermined course, as if things always get better on their own. Obama often praises those he pronounces to be on the “right side of history.” He also chastises others for being on the “wrong side of history” — as if evil is vanished and the good thrives on autopilot.
When in 2009 millions of Iranians took to the streets to protest the thuggish theocracy, they wanted immediate U.S. support. Instead, Obama belatedly offered them banalities suggesting that in the end, they would end up “on the right side of history.” Iranian reformers may indeed end up there, but it will not be because of some righteous inanimate force of history, or the prognostications of Barack Obama.
Reminds me of a classic song…
Is the name of a 90’s band from Livonia, Michigan. Their sound is unique.
Here are three of their classic tunes.
There are two more below.

Do you know how bad things are? Even the Washington Post is worried about Obama.
I shouldn’t say Obama has no plan. He seems to plan his time off rather well.
I love it when Greg Gutfeld hosts the O’Reilly Factor and this exchange doesn’t disappoint.
It all comes together when Greg asks Alan what would it take?

Boogie Board Ban, Parking App Prohibition, and Old Sunscreen Labeling (Nanny of the Month, 8-14)
In August, parking won’t be getting any easier in Boston as the city council pre-emptively bans parking spot reservation apps like Haystack. And one New York state senator makes it his mission to finally push through a 14-year-old bill to “ensure families know the dangers associated with old sunscreen.” But there can only be one Nanny of the Month, and this August it goes to another nanny draining the summer fun out of the beach: The New York City parks department, which has banned boogie boards.
Insiders speculate that the ban has to do with two kids swept out to sea on boogie boards while using them in the middle of Hurricane Bertha. But all the parks department administrator had to say was this:
“There has been an increased use of them, and we have to ban them for people’s safety.”
Because we all know that once something gets popular enough, it must be banned!

Report: ‘Nearly a dozen’ Americans fight for ISIS
There are “nearly a dozen” Americans fighting for the militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), The New York Times reports, based on statements from U.S. officials.
The Thursday report follows news this week that at least one American, Douglas McAuthur McCain, had been killed in Syria while fighting for ISIS.
There have been fears over Americans and others with Western passports getting training and experience in Syria and returning to the U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said on “Meet the Press” on Sunday that “they are one plane ticket away from U.S. shores, and that’s why we’re so concerned about it.“
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind anyone who’s reading this that Democrats have spent the last six years casually referring to Republicans, Tea Party members and anyone else with conservative or libertarian leanings as hostage takers and terrorists whenever the moment suited them.
Rather than challenging such an outrageous claim, our overwhelmingly liberal media simply parroted these words as facts.
Now we have Americans joining a force that represents the greatest threat to America since 9/11 and it’s pretty safe to say they’re not members of the Tea Party.
Maybe Democrats and their media allies can offer an apology to all the Americans they’ve insulted after World War III.
