Fox News reported Thursday that one of the five Taliban fighters the U.S. exchanged for deserter Sgt. Bo Bergdahl is re-joining the Taliban in Afghanistan.

President Obama was urged by civil rights leaders Friday to try to improve black unemployment numbers while he’s still in office. How bad is it? The economy is so bad in South Central Los Angeles that rap moguls who run over rival drug dealers on the streets of Compton have been forced to carpool.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker led Iowa polls among GOP presidential hopefuls Monday. He twice beat Democrats for governor in a blue state, he’s defeated the teachers’ union and he’s defeated a Democratic recall election effort.

Jordan’s King Abdullah flew to Washington Tuesday for a meeting with President Obama about the ISIS reign of terror in the Mideast. The time for action is now. The Muslim desert king has been criticized by his opponents for his reluctance to take on ISIS more forcefully, and so has King Abdullah.

President Obama met with Dream Act scholarship recipients Wednesday. The Dream Act gives college money to illegal alien kids paid for by a ten percent tax on tanning booth sessions.

NBC News anchor Brian Williams admitted Tuesday he was not in an Army helicopter in Iraq that was shot down twelve years ago, as he’s been telling viewers ever since. It’s an honest mistake. How many times, when your car backfires, do you think you just got shot down in a helicopter in Iraq.

Yesterday Obama presented a $4 trillion budget that he says would help the middle class. Then the middle class said, “You know what? How about you just give us the $4 trillion? We’ll figure out what to do with it.”
President Obama unveiled a $4 trillion budget for 2016 that would increase taxes on the wealthy and spend more money on education. He also made a snowball and put it in the oven, just to see which would last longer, his budget or the snowball.

Brian Williams of NBC News has admitted he embellished a story about being in a helicopter that was shot at in Iraq. Williams says the helicopter part was true but it was a coin-operated helicopter outside of a Chuck E. Cheese. It was in a bad part of Connecticut.
A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’
The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’
The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’
The biker replies, I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
…and THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days…
