The Supreme Court Caught With Robes Down On Hidden Cam



The United States Supreme Snort, er, Court-- are they for real? Well, just take a look at the hidden camera footage Funny or Die gathered for this "expose" on the Chief Justice and his all-boy's club. If you don't crack up watching this, you're not breathing.


Biggest Gaffe Ever At MSNBC?


Lindsay Lohan

In the words of of Belle Carroca (Lanie Kazan) in the film classic, My Favorite Year, "This I did not even know."

And I'm willing to bet, MSNBC didn't know it either.

Joy Reid needed smelling salts after collapsing on stage hearing this. Reports are that she's fully recovered and won't miss any additional work at MSNBC.

MSNBC Fact checkers? Can you please clean up the mess in front of the White House lawn. Her name is Chris Jansing and she needs some schooling. Oh, and a washcloth to remove the egg from her face.

It seems the mush-headed thinking reporter, Jansing (who must have taken too much of her medication before going on air) claims she was talking about the President's father, not the President.

But if you hear her go on, she's absolutely talking about the President as she refers to his election and his expectations he'd do great things for Africa after his election sure make this reporter look awfully unprepared and quite ignorant.

The President's Kenyan father was never elected to anything as far as anyone fact checking can find. Quite a gaffe from a woman who will most certainly be the laughing stock of MSNBC for years to come. Her next assignment will probably be getting someone coffee at the news outlet, not reporting from the White House.


Speaker of the House Boehner Calling It Quits


I quit

Faced with an imminent crushing and humiliating defeat by his own caucus, Speaker of the House Boehner unexpectedly quit today. No, he didn't give up his Speakership -- only his obligations to run the House.  He's decided to throw in the towel, do nothing (something he excels at), and hang out a sign on Congress's door saying, "Gone Fishing. Be back in 5 weeks."

With no significant immigration bill to assuage the border fears he and his fellow Republicans fueled, he looks like he's a loser who's no longer got the control over his own people. Stick a fork in the old fool. He's done.

He can take solace in the fact that his leadership isn't the only one to take an embarrassing wallop by pulling his weak and ineffective immigration bill. The troika of House GOP leaders all were crushed. Washington Post reports:

The pulling of the bill marked an embarrassing failure in the first real test of the new leadership team that takes office Thursday following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s resignation as majority leader.

Exiting a closed-door morning huddle at the Republican National Committee, senior Republicans had expressed confidence that the Boehner proposal would pass.

As recently as Thursday morning, hours before the scheduled summer break, Boehner had signaled he wanted a bill passed so the Democrats couldn't use the August break to pound away at the Xenophobic GOP. To ensure he could get conservative Republicans on his side, he was even ready to do away with the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program (DACA) -- surely something that would would get the Tea Party right wing immigration haters on board. It was all but assured -- and then the collapse. Newly elected GOP House Majority Whip Steve Scalise dashed Boehner's hopes with the news that he couldn't drum up the votes. Out the window went the bill as well as any possibility of getting Latino or Asian votes in the fall.


So now Boehner and his two cohorts have five weeks to hide their faces before they're called back to spend three more weeks doing nothing and then going on their next scheduled break. The national budget, transportation, immigration, embassy appointments, education reform, long term unemployment -- all of these are now going unattended.

Well, Boehner's done. And truthfully so is the GOP as they used to be known. There are three parties now in the US running our government -- Democrats, the remnant Republicans, and the Tea Party.

Are you an unhappy Republican? If so, blame John Boehner -- but do it quick. He might retire before returning. His orange face is obviously not wanted in Washington D.C. anymore, unless it's on a Wanted poster for obstruction of justice and dereliction of Duty.


The Devil's In The Dial Tones


Priest Claims Hate Texts Are From Demon SpiritFather Marian Rajchel

Exorcism. It's a pretty drastic move -- so much so that not too many priests will even attempt to engage in the procedure. But sometimes its a final resort an ambitious Father will endeavor to drive out the evil spirit, risking life, limb and perhaps evil text messages as you'll see reading on. Father Marian Rajchel from Jaroslaw in south-eastern Poland was up for the challenge. This Polish priest recently carried out an exorcism on a teenage girl and now he claims he is being contacted by Satan. I guess if you drive out an evil spirit you can understand him contacting you to express his displeasure -- but in this case it's via text message. Gotta hand it to the Devil. He's keeping up with modern technology. Yup. Beelzebub has got this priest's number -- or actually the cell number of his human teenage host -- the girl who the devil resides in. I say resides because evidently the exorcism purification failed. Sometimes that happens. Not all priests are able to pull off such a  house host cleaning. Since the failed effort on Father Rajchel's part, he says he's started receiving the hate messages. When you fail to drive the devil out of a victim's soul, what're you to expect, right? As reported in MailOnline: devil on cell phone

Now he believes that the demon is using the possessed teenager to attack him through a mobile phone.

'The author of these texts is an evil spirit who has possessed her soul', he said.

'Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are being used like this. However, in this case it is clear.'

Before going on, as a public service, I'm going to suggest you keep your cell phones locked when not in use. You never know when the Devil may have something to say to you. You'll recognize his number if you have caller ID. His area code is 666.

Okay, so to continue, Father R. didn't ignore the texts the Devil had sent him via the possessed child.

Father Rajchel claims that the devil and his followers were not shy about using modern technology but that in many cases their actions were not identified as being the work of evil.

One of the text messages, the Austrian Times reported, read: 'She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die.'

He replied, and was then sent another message in return: 'Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher.'

He said: 'Clearly this young girl has been possessed, and needs further help.'

The girl needs further help? You think? Did it ever occur to you that you were just being punked? Look around and see if Ashton Kutcher isn't hiding out somewhere in the pews with a cell phone and a camera crew.

One thing though, if this is for real. If you're going to get into a text message battle, I wouldn't take on the Devil. Who knows the added surcharges he might put on this kind of back and forth. After all, this girl's phone service might might be provided by Verizon and I've dealt with them before. Believe me, it was hell.
