Wombat's Friday Fodder

A quick run through the interesting points of new in "Live at Five: 04.24.15"

EU Agrees To Send More Ships To Stem Migrant Crisis - CBC manages To blame PM Harper for migrant deaths - Could increased patrols actually draw more migrants to sea? A civilized society has a large but finite capacity to assimilate foreigners from other countries without itself being consumed. Europe is farther down that road than the US, and one hope for the US is that Europe will be the bad example that sets us back on course.

Taylor Swift Doesn’t Appreciate Having Her Love Life Mocked At Awards Shows
“What else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone’s calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That’s public humiliation. And I don’t think it’s fair.”
Who told you life was fair? I hope you didn't pay for that advice.

Hillary Collected Millions While Approving Russian Uranium Deal
On the take, says NYT, Bill cashes in for $500M from Russians, too
Mitt Romney: “Every Appearance That Hillary Was Bribed” - The Clintons are America's (excuse me, 'Muricas") best loved criminal couple. A real political Bonny and Clyde. Compare and contrast to: Petraeus Gets Two Years, $100K Fine For Classified Leak - Who do you think exposed more secrets; Patreaus telling his girlfriend a few, or Hillary's unprotected server?

Mila Kunis Laughs Off Chicken Theft Lawsuit
On Wednesday, it came out that Karo, a struggling pop star, is suing Kunis for allegedly stealing her pet chicken while the two were young girls living in Ukraine.

The new mother also facetiously noted that she has not yet been physically served with a lawsuit from Karo, which she hinted might be because the suit serves no other purpose than to promote Karo’s over-the-top new music video.
Kristina Karo - wants a Green Card

Confusingly, throughout the video Kutcher repeatedly stresses that Karo was only a month old — and able to speak English — when the chicken was supposedly stolen, even though the lawsuit claims both girls were in first grade at the time of the alleged theft.
Obama Blames “Fog Of War” For Hostage Deaths In Drone Strike - Weinstein’s widow lashes out on captive policy - We should give Obama a bit of pass on this; yes bad shit happens in wars, but if the shoe was on a Republican foot you know they'd be saying "Romney lied, Weinstein died" over an intelligence failure.

Chinese Funeral Stripper
China Says Please Stop Hiring Funeral Strippers - Another interesting bit of Chinese culture we should look at. At least it's not sad. . .

ACLU Sues To Force Catholic Charities To Fund Illegals’ Abortions - Of course they do; what else would you expect? The ACLU to pay for it and provide it? Not on their dime!

Lea Michele
Lea Michele Gets Dramatic Transformation For “Scream Queens” - I'm trying to find a reason to care.

Bloggy Stuff:

Doug Powers: Doomsday Is Nye - Nye is an ass.

American Power: “Many human beings apparently never quite get over an innate totalitarian impulse.” - No, it's quite a human instinct, and few can train themselves not to indulge it when the chance arises.

BLACKFIVE: Adam Gadahn Dead? - Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. But we've been lied to fooled before.

Jammie Wearing Fools: Amazing Coincidence! Multiple Clinton Charity Donors Got State Department Awards Under Hillary - A lot of coincidences surrounding the Clintons.

Joe For America: Michael Brown’s “Parents” Sue Ferguson - See suits I want to fail.

This Ain’t Hell: VA’s Fudged Numbers Continue - The VA is so full of garbage administrators they don't know how to do it right. This is an institution that needs to be destroyed to be saved.

Pamela Geller: Denmark – Muslims Who Whipped Woman In Face With Iron Chains Laugh In Court - See my remarks on immigration above; it might be too late for Europe.

The Gateway Pundit: Brooklyn College Students Praise The Rise Of ISIS - Kids don't have their heads screwed on straight and college isn't helping.

The Jawa Report: The Real Reason Behind The Mediterranean Refugee Crisis - Muslim oppression of Christians. Instead of giving them refuge, give them guns to fight back.

Weasel Zippers: NBC Nightly News Says The Younger The Better for Transgender Kids - Have you noticed that transgender is the new gay? We need to totally remake society, and make ourselves uncomfortable, so that 0.01% of people who can't figure out what they are can be? 

Megan McArdle: When Deadbeat Dads Can’t Catch A Break - It's the only form of debtors prison left in the United States.

Linked at Proof Positive in this week's "Best of the Web." Wombat-socho at the Other McCain snuck in late Sunday Night with "Late Night Reprise With Rule 5."
