…Biden, to set up a story about how he was almost arrested on Ohio University’s campus in 1963, said he came to Ohio University then because “my football team, the University of Delaware, came to avenge a loss” from 1961.
“I came … I was a football player … I came here in 1963 … and we beat you Bobcats, 29-12,” Biden said…
…if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart…
…A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans.

…A shockingly graphic tweet by U.S. Airways featuring a woman and an airplane has led to an investigation and red-faced apology by the airline.
A photo of a naked woman lying exposed on a bed with a toy plane between her legs was publicly shared by the airline late Monday afternoon while responding to disgruntled customers who were angry about a recent flight delay…
… what’s with your Bison Party thing?
There’s some iconic imagery in there.
And, no, this episode isn’t over.*
The executive director of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association says his sources inside the federal government warn that Washington’s weekend retreat in a dispute over grazing land in Nevada was only a move to distract attention and diffuse tensions, because a raid on the family’s ranch still is planned.
And there probably would be violence involved, said Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Grisham County, Ariz.
“I don’t think it would be possible” to launch a raid without violence, he told WND Monday. “I don’t think the Bundys would lie down and be taken.”
He cited the vow by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., that the confrontation was far from over, despite the weekend’s retreat by armed gunmen working for federal agencies.
Reid on Monday told KRNV-TV in Reno: “It’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.” [more]

Wellp, heeere’s an interesting item, brothers an’ sisters.
Looks like the MB’s new international office, now located above an old, disused kebab shop in the north-west London area of Cricklewood*, is being moved to-ooo …
[adjusts glasses, scrolls through the story] (Ah! Here it is.)
… Graz, Austria. [pulls up GoogleMaps]
Hmm, evidently, some of the head guys have been there before, so I assume that Graz has decided to let bygones be bygones. Then again, Austria used to like Nazis, and I assume these guys speak Austrian**, so reckon it’s a win-win. At least they won’t have to go live in some Islamist-run hellhole while they ply their protection racket.
Not sure they’re gonna get many guys to help ‘em move their stuff, though.
I mean, hey, no beer and pepperoni & sausage pizzas.
(What? No, I don’t know if Graz has disused kebab shops.)
* That phrase is the entire reason for this post.

If you’ve ever wondered how bureaucracies manage to accumulate massive power without effective opposition, here’s an example. Basically, they create their own justification; doesn’t really matter whether or not that justification is valid. After all, it’s the way it should be. Hey, it’s for the, you know, greater good and stuff.
Seven months after being subpoenaed by Congress, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy conceded that her agency does not have – and cannot produce – all of the scientific data used for decades to justify numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act.
A committee staff member confirmed to CNSNews.com that “EPA gave us what they have of both studies, which is a significant amount of data, but not sufficient” to allow independent reproduction or verification of results.
“We’re at a point where EPA has conceded that they don’t have in their possession the data necessary to fully comply, and in some cases, never did possess the data,” he added.
[T]wo newer studies cast doubts on the original research. [more]
The thing about real science is that error and fraud eventually fail honest scrutiny.
Science is never settled settled.
I think there’s a silver lining, here. Between this and the impending collapse of the AGW cult, there’s a possibility that the bases of some totalitarian trends may find themselves subject to a degree of skepticism. Political cults eventually overreach by dismissing the possibility of contradiction, but their inquisitors can’t crush all of the heretics.
Now, let’s take a good look at the Endangered Species Act, among others.
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said he found “most disturbing” was the BLM’s use of a “First Amendment area” that confined protesters to a designated area.
Such an area “tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution,” Sandoval said. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”
Now, just git rid of that rustler Harry HoHouse Reid and y’all gonna have a right nice state, there.
In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods.
The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools …
Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.
The email from the teachers union also suggested that the effort to improve the schools is an effort … to damage black children and black families. [more]
Improving schools damages children and families?
That … that doesn’t even make any sense!
It’s like teachers unions think they own black kids and families,
or that they can be used as hostages,
or that they should be kept in their place,
or sumpthin’ equally despicable.
You know that line about women making 77 cents for every dollar men earn?
If so, why would there be a single male hired? Anywhere?
