Republican Scott Brown pulls to within statistical dead heat with Democrat Jeanne Shaheen

The Obama effect?
Republican Scott Brown has closed a 12-point gap in the monthly WMUR/Granite State poll, and has pulled into a statistical dead heat with incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen for the New Hampshire US Senate seat.

Saudi Arabia executed an man this month for sorcery...

Ignorant bastards...
(Beirut) – Saudi Arabia has executed at least 19 people since August 4, 2014. Local news reports indicate that eight of those executed were convicted of nonviolent offenses, seven for drug smuggling and one for sorcery. Family members of another man, Hajras bin Saleh al-Qurey, told Human Rights Watch on August 17 that they fear his execution is imminent. The Public Court of Najran, in southern Saudi Arabia, sentenced al-Qurey to death by beheading on January 16, 2013 for allegedly smuggling drugs and attacking a police officer during his arrest. “Any execution is appalling, but executions for crimes such as drug smuggling or sorcery that result in no loss of life are particularly egregious,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director.

Nonpartisan GAO: Obama clearly broke law with Bergdahl-Taliban exchange...

Breaking the law, along with lying, is something Team Obama excels at...

Via FOX News:
A nonpartisan government watchdog agency said Thursday that the Pentagon broke the law when it swapped five Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl earlier this year.
The Government Accountability Office, in a legal opinion issued at the request of congressional lawmakers, said the Defense Department violated the law by failing to notify key Capitol Hill committees at least 30 days in advance.
Further, the report said the Pentagon broke another law by using funds that were not technically available.
Defense Department press secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby told Fox News Thursday night,  "the operation to retrieve Sgt. Bergdahl was lawfully conducted and that was also the judgment of the Justice Department. Nothing has changed about our view that this was a lawful recovery operation."
The GAO said the law in this case is "clear and unambiguous." The agency said that while the Defense Department defended the legality of the controversial swap, "in our view, DOD has dismissed the significance of the express language" in the law.

Meet the 1%: Bill Clinton smokes $1000 cigars...

I could comment about what other things Bill might be doing with his overpriced cigars, but I am going to restrain myself. . 

Via The Weekly Standard:
Bill Clinton enjoys a Gurkha cigar, "the Rolls Royce of the cigar industry." He "loves the Gurkhas," Gurkha chief executive officer Kaizad Hansotia, maker of the HMR cigar, which stands for His Majesty's Reserve. It is, according to Hansotia, "the world's most expensive cigar."
One box is $25,000 -- and the price will rise next year to $30,000. "The cigars are close to $1,000 each," says the cigar boss to Bloomberg.

Video: Entire shooting of 2nd St. Louis man was filmed in it's entirety. (Graphic violence and language)

Allegedly, the man had a knife, but the video is at range. The man did tell police to shoot him. The police happily complied while the victim was several feet away and walking slowly toward them. He was about 8 to 10 feet away by my estimation and the police fired about 10 rounds. No tasers. No aiming for the legs. Just maximum lethal force.This isn't the kind of policing they show you on Cops at night.

Start at the 1:30 for the shooting.  (Graphic violence and language)
