Jeb Bush backs Loretta Lynch for next attorney general

GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is urging Senate Republicans to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general, Politico reports.

Bush endorsed Lynch on Thursday. “I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said during a “Politics and Pie” forum New Hampshire. He said the longer they take to confirm Lynch, the longer Eric Holder will remain in the position.

Bush added, “If someone is supportive of the president’s policies, whether you agree with them or not, there should be some deference to the executive. It should not always be partisan.”

Tea Partier James Webb Willing to Vote for Hillary Clinton Over Obamacare

Tea Party patriot James Webb loves Obamacare

LOL:  Who would have thought a Tea Party patriot James Webb would be willing to vote for Hillary Clinton out of fear of losing his Obamacare benefits if a Republican should win the presidential election. And he’s serious.

Webb, a video blogger, took to YouTube to tell his followers why he will be voting for Hillary Clinton next November. He said Obamacare changed his life for better.

James Webb posts as Hot Lead retired on YouTube. He confessed to his hundreds of followers that he was emotionally conflicted which party to support in the elections and is seriously thinking about voting Democratic (H/T Addicting Info):

“And I’m serious because I asked myself, ‘Which party has helped me out the most in the last, I don’t know, 15 years, 20?’ And it was the Democrat Party.”

[..]

“With Obamacare, I got to retire at age 50 because if it wasn’t for Obamacare, I would have had to work until I was 65 and get on Medicare because health insurance is expensive when you’ve got medical problems.”

[..]

“But you know, the Republican Party, they haven’t done nothing for me, man. Nothing. So, I’m leaning toward voting for Hillary unless something major comes up. I don’t trust the Republicans anymore because they’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare. And I don’t want them to do that, man, because then I’ll have to go to work again. My life’s already planned out.”

[..]

“Things have changed. So unless the Republicans change with it, I’m probably going to have to swing my vote over toward Hillary.”

So, let me get this straight….James Webb hates everything about President Obama but loves what Obamacare affords him? These right wingnuts are a trip!

Watch James Webb give Hillary Clinton props over Obamacare:

President Obama, Cuban President Raul Castro in Historic Sit-Down Meeting

President Obama, Cuban President Raul Castro historic meeting

President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro met in the first sit-down between the two countries in a half-century. The last time the two countries had a meeting was in 1956. It is very historic.

Obama told Castro that “over time it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our 2 countries.”

President Castro asked for “patience” as the two countries thaw relations.

President Obama said, “This shift in US policy represents a turning point for our entire region.”

Earlier, President Castro apologized to President Obama and that he was unlike the 10 previous presidents before him. He said Obama was a “honest man” and reached this conclusion after skimming through his autobiography.

New York Times: “If Mr. Obama was ready to forget past grudges, Mr. Castro was not. He gave a lengthy speech on Saturday that included a recitation of Cuban grievances against the United States — including its support for Fulgencio Batista, the Bay of Pigs invasion and its opening of the prison at Guantánamo Bay — sometimes pounding the table for emphasis. But Mr. Castro also made clear that he did not blame Mr. Obama for the legacy of bad blood between their two countries.”

President Barack Obama: “It is a Great Pleasure to Visit Jamaica”

President Obama in Jamaica

President Obama, who is on a two day visit to Jamaica, wishes for the deep relationship between the island and the U.S. will remain for generations. He arrived in Jamaica on April 8 ahead of his trip to Panama for the Seventh Summit of the Americas.

Obama wrote in the Official Guest Book at Jamaica House: “It is a great pleasure to visit Jamaica, known for its beauty and the extraordinary spirit of its people. May the deep and abiding friendship between our nations continue for generations to come.”

Of course, the only thing the American media took from his comments was that he wrote the wrong date. Unbelievable.

President Obama has a full slate of activities planned for Thursday before he departs to Panama. He will attend a CARICOM-US Summit at the University of the West Indies (UWI), a Youth Forum, also at UWI and a wreath-laying ceremony at National Heroes Park.

Dick Cheney, the least credible person in the U.S. is set to take on President Obama in a new book, entitled “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America.” His daughter, Liz Cheney, who couldn’t even win a senatorial seat, is the co-author.

According to the Associated Press, the book “contends that Obama has abandoned a decades-long tradition of American global leadership.”

President Obama, along with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia, attended Easter service at the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Va.

Rev. Dr. Howard John Wesley told the congregation, “How fitting that on the day that we celebrate the rising of our Lord and Savior, we also welcome our sitting president.”

He jokingly added, “This is not selfie time.” “Let the brother worship in the house of God.”

“Kansas welfare recipients will be unable to get more than $25 per day in benefits under a new law sent this week to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s desk by the state legislature,” the Huffington Post reports.

“The bill also prohibits welfare recipients from spending their benefits at certain types of businesses, including liquor stores, fortune tellers, swimming pools and cruise ships.”

Um, I didn’t realize welfare recipients would be island hopping and having a grand ole time at the expense of taxpayers. Wait, elected officials also do that, but they mostly get a pass for bad behavior.

Michele Bachmann Compares Obama to Germanwings Co-Pilot Andreas Lubitz

(OPINION) — Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is still a raging lunatic. She is comparing President Obama to deranged Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who killed 150 people, by “deliberately” crashing the plane in the French Alps. This is why the Republican Party is losing credibility…fast.

On Tuesday, Bachmann posted on her Facebook page:

With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?

I am sure Michele Bachmann thought she was making such a valid point and not coming off as the right wing lunatic we know her to be. What a moron.

Indiana’s Memories Pizza Slammed on Yelp for Anti-Gay Stance

Memories Pizza anti-gay stance

Crystal O’Connor, the owner of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind., must have thought she was so astute when she publicly proclaimed her company would not serve pizza for gay weddings. That’s as though someone would serve pizza at a wedding. Well, Ms. O’Connor thought wrong. The family-owned business was blasted on Yelp.

Here are some of the reviews for Memories Pizza:

Anja A: “I really have to give the owner 5 stars for having the insanely audacious idea that any self-respecting gay person would order her pizza for their wedding. Prosciutto, manchego, and roasted fig flat-bread with a reduced balsamic drizzled artistically on top, maybe. But her slop? LOL. Apparently hate and delusions of grandeur are a perfect marriage!”

Jeff M: This establishment refuses service to people based on their sexual orientation. Jesus died for everyone, these people won’t make a pizza for people who are in love with people of the same sex. Owner claims he CHOSE to be straight which leads me to believe he really isn’t.

Rachel F: I had the single most horrific experience of my life! I wanted some pizza after my klan rally so of course it was memories pizza. I know we are supposed to be anonymous and all that but whatever! I ordered a nice hot and steamy not gay and extra mozzarella cause I only consume white cheese because it is the superior cheese. And resting on top of my pepperoni was a tooth! I was shocked, but relieved it was a white tooth. Apparently it belonged to the girl behind the counter.

I went to return it to her and she was making out with this woman and screaming it was a choice! It seems to me this restaurant has gone downhill. I plan to tell my klan friends about this and we will be eating our white cheese elsewhere!

Michael R: I can’t condem their food I can only condem their actions. Anyone who has anyone close to them in the LGBT community knows it is not a lifestyle choice. I know many people in the LGBT community and they are full of love and compassion, as we all should be.

I only wish for you and your family that you find in your life time the same love and compassion that my many friends have shown me. #PizzaHate #RemoveMikePence

Indiana Pizzeria Invokes Religious Freedom Law, No Pies for Gay Weddings

Indiana Pizzeria Invokes Religious Freedom Law, No Pies for Gay Weddings

Indiana Pizzeria Invokes Religious Freedom Law, No Pies for Gay Weddings

Religious Freedom Act

Gov. Mike Pence said that Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act isn’t meant to encourage discrimination. Well, it does. A Walkertown pizzeria said it will discriminate against gays on the basis of this law. This begs the obvious question…who orders pizza for a wedding?

Memories Pizza owner Crystal O’Connor told local ABC News affiliate, “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no.” “We are a Christian establishment. Though they are welcome to patronize the establishment for non-matrimonial events.

“I don’t think it’s discrimination,” O’Connor says. “It’s supposed to help people that have a religious belief.”

It will be interesting to see how Gov. Pence proposes to fix this law since he clearly stated he doesn’t think it will lead to discrimination. Memories Pizza is saying otherwise.
