‘Leave Justin Bieber alone!’ Singer detained by US immigration officials

E! News is reporting that Justin Bieber, a Canadian, was detained by U.S. immigration officials upon flying into Los Angeles from Japan Thursday. TMZ reports that “U.S. Customs agents are giving JB a secondary customs search … which includes getting grilled about all his open criminal cases — DUI arrest in Miami, egg throwing at his neighbor, etc.”
The Belibers, that’s who.
Um, what?
President Obama has yet to comment on the matter publicly.

‘Shocking!’ Jay Carney takes his ‘revolving door’ clown show to CNN

At the end of May, President Obama said goodbye to outgoing Press Secretary Jay Carney. There was subsequent speculation about Jay Carney’s next job, but was there ever any doubt that he’d end up back in the mainstream media?
Here’s the kind of totally believable analysis CNN viewers can look forward to:
A preview of Carney’s CNN coverage of President Obama’s address about ISIS:
Without a doubt!

Martha MacCallum hits Congress & POTUS for delayed outrage about VA

Since taking office, President Obama has repeatedly promised to “fulfill our sacred trust and serve our returning heroes as well as they’ve served us.” Over and over, the perpetual campaigner vowed that health care services for veterans would improve under VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s leadership. And yet, here we are.

As Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum notes, the VA’s unacceptable treatment of American heroes is not a new story. These late expressions of “outrage” from Obama and members of Congress? Color MacCallum unimpressed:
Action and accountability speak louder than newfound outrage and sending Shinseki to bed without dessert.
Which reminds us, guess who’s still “reserving judgment” instead of joining the chorus of calls for Shinseki to resign or be fired:

‘Let’s get to it, folks!’ Desperate Dems recruit Joe Biden to gin up midterm excitement on Twitter

He’s baaaaaaaaaaack! Well, sort of:
Hot stuff!

The Democratic National Committee will start tweeting from @JoeBiden in an election-year push to benefit Democratic House and Senate candidates, the committee said on Monday.

“@JoeBiden will be another way for the Vice President to engage our supporters, spread the Democratic message and support our candidates heading into the midterm elections,” a DNC spokesperson told TIME Magazine, which first reported the news. http://time.com/51223/joe-biden-twitter-2014/

During a speech to the DNC in February, Biden said he and President Obama had an “obligation” to help Democrats in the midterm elections. He said he had committed to assist 120 races this cycle, and that the pair would raise money “to help make this viable.”

Here’s @JoeBiden‘s first tweet in well over a year:
Uncle Joe even signed it! Which means it’s totes legit. As legit as Uncle Joe can be, anyway.
Yeah, that brain of his has a tendency to be underused.
Hey, not so fast! This could be very entertaining.
Same here! Our helmets are on and we’re ready to go!

Politico’s Blake Hounshell: Are these five Taliban guys ninjas?

Sure, the five Taliban leaders released from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were bad guys … but just how bad? Politico’s Blake Hounshell asks the question the rest of us would be too embarrassed to ask: were these guys, like, super-powered ninjas or something?

MacCallum crushes with Benghazi boom-question; Hume calls out Obama admin

Wait … not a crappy YouTube video?! Who would have thunk it?

More from Fox News:

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

Lies and damn lies from the Obama administration once again.

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum took to Twitter with this Benghazi boom-question:
Nailing? Achieved once again.
Spin is too kind of a way to say it. Fellow Fox Newser Brit Hume sums up what it really is quite handily:
Dead-on, sir. As always.

Obama’s choice for DC mayor (or her staffer) deletes weird ‘$$$$’ tweet

It’s the best of times, it’s the worst of times for D.C. mayoral hopeful Muriel Bowser.

First up, she was endorsed by President Obama in her run for D.C. mayor. That’s some good news:

BREAKING: President Obama has endorsed Muriel Bowser in D.C.'s mayoral race, reports #News4's @TomSherwood. http://t.co/VUtU1hy5cL

— NBCWashington (@nbcwashington) October 6, 2014

Then she got to take a picture with the president at a fundraiser they both attended in D.C. More good news:

Spoke w/ Pres @BarackObama tonight about our progressive vision that gives everyone a fair shot #All8Wards #Forward pic.twitter.com/Tx7hxdtVaV

— MurielBowser (@MurielBowser) October 7, 2014

But then…

Let’s overlook for the moment that @BarackObama isn’t really the president, but a shadowy dark-money 501(c)(4) that didn’t endorse her and focus on what happened next. Bowser — literally — was a no-show at the fundraiser when President Obama gave her a shout-out:

Obama: "Where’s Muriel [Bowser]? Stand up. She had to go? She had to go? Well, I love her anyway. She had to go campaign."

— Edward-Isaac Dovere (@IsaacDovere) October 7, 2014

Pool rpt: Muriel Bowser left tonight's DNC $raiser before Obama acknowledged her. "Obama made a joke abt her needing to leave to campaign."

— Edward-Isaac Dovere (@IsaacDovere) October 6, 2014


Oh, it get’s better.

The Washington Post’s Mike Debonis noted that Bowser was already fundraising off of the Obama endorsement, asking donors for $44…

…which prompted this hilarious response from a reader…

@mikedebonis @MurielBowser $$$$it's$$$$$all$$$$$about$$$$$$$the$$$$$$

— Mike Miguel (@MikeMiguel) October 6, 2014

…which was then RT’d by either Bowser or someone with access to her Twitter account…

— Nicko (@SFnicko) October 6, 2014

…and then quickly deleted by either Bowser or someone with access to her Twitter account. Oops.

A Freudian slip where she actually agreed that the president’s endorsement is really, in the end, “all$$$$$about$$$$$$$the$$$$$$?
