You ride with the cavalry you are given, conservatives. Even if it is Mr. Ed.
2. From Real Clear Politics: "Can the Clintons Rescue an Embattled Family Member in Pa.?"
Democratic Party voters: Hell no.
After a quarter century of the constant turmoil and drama from these grifters from Hope, the American people have had it with the House of Clinton.
She's an old hag and he's a limp corndog.
3. From ABC: Former Dollar General CEO David Perdue has advanced to a GOP runoff in Georgia's hotly contested Senate race that will eventually help determine which party controls Congress."
Poca has a Dollar General.
4. From Reuters: "A sophisticated hacking group recently attacked a U.S. public utility and compromised its control system network, but there was no evidence that the utility's operations were affected, according to the Department of Homeland Security."
You know what?
We're vulnerable. We always will be. Eventually we die.
Dump DHS and give everyone a round of bourbon. It's on the Scorekeeper. Life's too short to get ulcers over security.
5. From CNS: "The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national biosurveillance system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom. The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018.”
This is why Obamacare puts your medical records online.
6. From Right Wing News: "A former Illinois Obamacare navigator discovered to have been a convicted terrorist may now plead guilty over failing to tell immigration officers about her conviction when she moved to the U.S. Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was sentenced to life in prison by an Israeli court in 1970 after she and her accomplices with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group, placed multiple bombs in Jerusalem on Feb. 21, 1969 which killed two college students doing their grocery shopping."
Ever notice how many terrorists that Obama attracts to his regime?
He's like a magnet for maggots.
7. From Yahoo: "It's one of the worst-kept secrets around Detroit; that Dodge was tinkering with a new version of its Challenger muscle car that would leapfrog the power not just of the competition but of any other car Chrysler builds. And today, Dodge made it official, announcing it would offer a supercharged V-8 in the Challenger SRT good for more than 600 hp. The question it didn't answer was: Just how much more?"
Still no droptop.
8. From the Wall Street Journal: "China and Russia Sign Natural Gas Deal Gazprom. CEO Says Agreement Worth $400 Billion Over 30 Years."
So the Evil Empire re-assembles itself as a capitalist state while we go commie.
9. From Democratic Florida Rep. Joe Garcia: “And of course, the reason is we’ve proved that Communism works. If you give everybody a good, government job, there’s no crime.”
You thought No. 8 was hyperbole?
10. From Breitbart: "CNN boss Jeff Zucker conceded that his audience is not interested in the network's global warming agenda."
The only thing global warming is melting away is CNN's audience.
11. Nevertheless, CNN pursues the untruth relentlessly.
@jtLOL @JimRoseVSOP @CarolCNN @DailyCaller Change "climate change" to "Easter bunny" and it sounds a lot more plausible.That fewer Americans believe this nonsense is proof that there is hope yet for our nation -- and hence, the world.

12. From Don Surber:
The $1.2 trillion in student loan debt means $1.2 trillion is not borrowed in mortgages. This has stalled the housing market, which stalls the economy.
To put that in perspective, the total residential mortgages fell from $11.9 trillion in 2007 to less than $9.9 trillion last year.
“Investment in residential property remains a smaller share of the overall economy than at any time since World War II, contributing less to growth than it did even in previous steep downturns in the early 1980s, when mortgage rates hit 20 percent,” Neil Irwin wrote in the New York Times.
When we paid 19.5 percent interest on a mobile home in the 1980s, my wife and I helped the economy recover from a far worse situation than what we had in 2008 and 2009. The misery index (the rate of inflation plus the unemployment rate) peaked at 20.76 in 1980 compared to a mere 12.11 in 2011.The Scorekeeper is a great admirer of his own work.
13. From Elizabeth Murray: "Another summer, another class-action lawsuit against the NFL. This time, eight former NFL players — Richard Dent, Jim McMahon, Jeremy Newberry, Roy Green, J.D. Hill, Keith Van Horne, Ron Stone, and Ron Pritchard — filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that the NFL supplied them with illegally prescribed painkillers throughout their careers, which led to medical complications such as addiction later in life."
Hey, new marketing opportunity. Sell team naming rights. "The Cleveland Browns sponsored by OxyContin."
14. From CBS: "Miami VA Whistleblower Exposes Drug Dealing, Theft, Abuse."
Or as the Scorekeeper calls it, a typical day in Congress.
15. Just to prove the Scorekeeper isn't a sexist who publishes only photos of pretty girls.
If only members of Congress had some kind of power to change the world.
15. From Twitter.
@donsurber The schadenfreude induced by that story almost caused me to pass out.They should try the hashtag #DontRobUs next.

16. From Breitbart:
Undercover journalist James O’Keefe released his latest video featuring a sting operation to expose Hollywood environmentalists. The video features an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posing as "Muhammad,” a member of a Middle Eastern oil family, offering $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.
He was joined by a second undercover activist posing as an ad executive. O’Keefe entraps actor Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemingway, and director Josh Tickell, who agree to the film while promising to hide the source of the funds.Makes you wonder how many other projects Hollywood fronts.
There is no greater fiction than a documentary.
17. From the National Weather Service this afternoon:
Final score: GOOD 11, EVIL 6.
