Kurdish soldiers in Kobane claim he suffered a “premature” detonation.
Too bad he won’t be able to “enjoy” his 72 virgins anymore.

How many times does a “Commander in Chief” get to act like a “Pimp?”
If you’re President Obama, just about “any time.”
As he stood at a “voting” booth in Chicago next to Aia Cooper her fiancé, Mike Jones, had a “stern” warning for the president.
“Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend,” Jones told him.
Obama responded by making “fun of him” and giving his fiancée a “hug and kiss” on the cheek.
“Now, he’s really jealous,” Obama quipped, but don’t tell Michelle, please.
She will get “angry” and make me “sleep” in the Lincoln room again.
As “cool and confident” as POTUS Obama was, he gets points “deducted” for being surrounded by Secret Service.
It’s easy to “act like a pimp” if the boyfriend can’t take a “swing at you.”
President Obama was “voting” early so he could spend the “rest of the month” kick golfing.
Having previously “rejected” the idea of an “Ebola Czar,” President Obama appointed “fat” fraternity buddy and Democratic political hack Ron “Flounder” Klain to be the “Ebola Czar” to coordinate the federal government’s “responses” to the deadly virus.
“It may make sense for us to have one person … so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward,” Obama said.
Klain, who does not have any “medical or public health care” expertise, served as “Chief of Staff” to Vice Presidents Gore and Biden, and spearheaded Gore’s “recount efforts” in the 2000 presidential election.
Having “left” the Vice President’s office in 2011, he has since become the president of “Case Holdings,” the holding company for AOL co-founder Steve Case.
Obama’s pick “oversaw” implementation in 2009 of what “proved” to be the president’s largely ineffective $800 billion economic stimulus package while chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden.
“It’s nothing if not a bad omen that President Obama is appointing the guy who had a key role in implementing the massively wasteful spending program, known as the stimulus, to be his Ebola czar,” said Heritage Expert Romina Boccia, lead expert on the federal budget.
She added “It should make Congress especially wary of heeding any requests for massive new spending to address Ebola. It’s not new spending that’s needed, but better prioritization of existing funds.”
Other critics singled out Klain’s “signing off” on a taxpayer backed, $535 million loan guarantee to “Solyndra,” the failed solar company “headed” by Obama backers.
“Klain was dismissive of the risk involved with Solyndra, and as a result dismissive of wasting over half a billion dollars in taxpayer money,” said Nicolas Loris, a Heritage economist who specializes in energy and environmental policy.
Klain’s official title will be “Ebola Response Coordinator” reporting directly to two other trusted Obama aides, White House “Homeland Security Adviser” Lisa Monaco and “National Security Adviser” Susan Rice.
Although Klain has no background in “medical or public health care,” Obama apparently expects the job to be a “managerial” role.
“What we were looking for was not an Ebola expert, but rather an implementation expert,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, when asked about Klain’s “lack” of medical background.
His presence will “free up” Tom Frieden, the much-criticized director of the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” to focus on “medical functions” in addressing the “advent of Ebola cases” in the U.S.
After spending four hours and 40 minutes on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, “Obama held an Ebola meeting in the evening attended by members of his national security and public health teams to update him on the response to the domestic Ebola cases,” the White House said in an email blast.
“The President’s advisers detailed the status of the contact tracing process to identify and, as necessary, monitor all individuals who may have come into contact with Ebola patients in Dallas following their exposure. The President’s team also reviewed for him the comprehensive measures the Administration—acting together with state and local partners—is taking to ensure that Dallas has all of the appropriate and necessary resources to diagnose any additional cases safely and effectively.”
The meeting concluded with a “discussion” of broader steps to increase the “preparedness” of our health sector nationwide.
Here is a photograph of “Ebola Boy” putting while “fat” Czar Ron Klain is sipping “fine wine” in the golf cart as they “reassure” America that the threat of an “Ebola” outbreak is extremely low.
You Cannot Get Ebola Sitting Next to Someone On a Bus or through casual contact “standing next to someone” on the golf course.
“Ebola Boy” now has a politically obedient “lightning rod” to take the heat for him, just as he had “Kathleen Sebelius” to take the heat for the $661,000,000 “ObamaCare” software disaster.
“Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” The American people are so “dumbfounded” that they can be “fooled” a million times and still stand there “jaw” agape. Hayseed simpletons.
Meanwhile the deliberate “destruction” of the Republic continues apace.
The essential question remains: “Has his golf score improved?”
Theodore (Dutch) Van Kirk, the navigator and last surviving crew member of the Enola Gay, the B-29 Superfortress that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima in the last days of World War II, died on July 28, 2014 at his home in Stone Mountain, Ga.
His son Thomas confirmed the death. He was 93.
In the predawn hours of Aug. 6, 1945, the Enola Gay, piloted by Col. Paul W. Tibbets Jr. and carrying a crew of 12, took off from Tinian in the Mariana Islands with a uranium bomb built under extraordinary secrecy in the vast Manhattan Project.
Captain Van Kirk spread out his navigation charts on a small table behind Colonel Tibbets’s seat. From that spot, at the end of a long tunnel atop the bomb bays, he took the plane’s bearings, using a hand-held sextant to guide with the stars.
When the Enola Gay reached Iwo Jima as the sun rose, it began an ascent to 31,000 feet. At 8:15 a.m. Japan time, it reached Hiroshima, a city of 250,000 and the site of an important army headquarters.
The bombardier, Maj. Thomas W. Ferebee, said, “I got it,” announcing that the Enola Gay was over his aiming point, the T-shaped Aioi Bridge.
Captain Van Kirk, who had also familiarized himself with Hiroshima’s landmarks, leaned over Major Ferebee’s shoulder and confirmed he was correct.
His navigating skills had brought the Enola Gay to its target only a few seconds behind schedule at the conclusion of a six-and-a-half-hour flight.
Major Ferebee released the bomb, known as Little Boy, and 43 seconds later, at 1,890 feet above ground zero, it exploded in a nuclear inferno, leaving tens of thousands dead or dying and turning Hiroshima into scorched devastation.
Colonel Tibbets executed a diving turn to avoid the blast effects, but the Enola Gay was buffeted by a pair of shock waves. A flash of light that Van Kirk likened to a photographer’s flashbulb engulfed the cabin.
“The plane jumped and made a sound like sheet metal snapping,” Van Kirk told The New York Times on the 50th anniversary of the Hiroshima raid.
“Shortly after the second wave, we turned to where we could look out and see the cloud, where the city of Hiroshima had been.”
He added: “The entire city was covered with smoke and dust and dirt. I describe it looking like a pot of black, boiling tar. You could see some fires burning on the edge of the city.”
Van Kirk remembered “a sense of relief.”
“Even though you were still up there in the air and no one else in the world knew what had happened, you just sort of had a sense that the war was over, or would be soon,” he told Bob Greene in Mr. Greene’s 2000 book, “Duty.”
Shortly before 3 p.m., the crewmen returned to Tinian and were greeted, as Van Kirk told it, by “more generals and admirals than I had ever seen in one place in my life.”
Three days later, another B-29 dropped a plutonium bomb on Nagasaki. On Aug. 15, Japan surrendered, bringing World War II to an end.
Theodore Van Kirk — everybody called him Dutch — was born and reared in Northumberland, Pa. He attended Susquehanna College for a year, then became an Army Air Forces cadet in October 1941.
Colonel Tibbets, flying with the Eighth Air Force out of England, selected Captain Van Kirk and Major Ferebee for his crew the next year.
Their B-17 Flying Fortress, named “Red Gremlin,” became the lead plane in the 97th Bomb Group’s missions and flew Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to Gibraltar in November 1942 in preparation for the invasion of North Africa.
After 58 missions over Europe and North Africa, Captain Van Kirk returned to the United States to train navigators.
When Colonel Tibbets was selected to command the 509th Composite Group, a unit of 1,800 airmen assembled in Utah in the fall of 1944 to train for delivering the atomic bomb, he brought Captain Van Kirk and Major Ferebee with him.
This time they trained on the newly developed B-29’s.
As Van Kirk recalled Colonel Tibbets’s words in a 2005 Time magazine interview: “He told me, ‘We’re going to do something that I can’t tell you about right now, but if it works, it will end or significantly shorten the war.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, yeah, buddy, I’ve heard that before.’ ”
In the summer of 1945, the 509th conducted its final training on Tinian, and President Harry S. Truman gave the order to drop the atomic bomb.
Whether the United States should have used the atomic bomb has been debated endlessly. Van Kirk thought it was necessary because it shortened the war and eliminated the need for an Allied land invasion that could have cost more lives on both sides.
“I honestly believe the use of the atomic bomb saved lives in the long run. There were a lot of lives saved. Most of the lives saved were Japanese,” Van Kirk said.
But it also made him wary of war.
“The whole World War II experience shows that wars don’t settle anything. And atomic weapons don’t settle anything,” he said.
“I personally think there shouldn’t be any atomic bombs in the world — I’d like to see them all abolished. But if anyone has one,” he added, “I want to have one more than my enemy.”
The crews that dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were seen by Americans as saviors for ending the war. But over the years, the morality of atomic warfare and the need for the bombings has been questioned.
Van Kirk joined his fellow crewmen in “unwavering” defense of the atomic raids.
“We were fighting an enemy that had a reputation for never surrendering, never accepting defeat,” he said. “It’s really hard to talk about morality and war in the same sentence.”
He continued: “Where was the morality in the bombing of Coventry, or the bombing of Dresden, or the Bataan Death March, or the Rape of Nanking, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor? I believe that when you’re in a war, a nation must have the courage to do what it must to win the war with a minimum loss of lives.”
Van Kirk stayed on with the military for a year after the war ended and retired from military service in 1946 as a major, having received the Silver Star and Distinguished Flying Cross.
Earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering from Bucknell University Van Kirk became a marketing executive with DuPont where he stayed until he retired in 1985.
He later moved from California to the Atlanta area to be near his daughter. Besides his son Thomas, survivors include another son, Larry; two daughters, Vicki Triplett and Joanne Gotelli; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Like many World War II veterans, Van Kirk didn’t talk much about his service until much later in his life when he spoke to school groups, his son said.
“I didn’t even find out that he was on that mission until I was 10 years old and read some old news clippings in my grandmother’s attic,” Tom Van Kirk said in a phone interview.
Instead, he and his three siblings treasured a wonderful father, who was a great mentor and remained active and “sharp as a tack” until the end of his life.
“I know he was recognized as a war hero, but we just knew him as a great father,” Tom Van Kirk said.
Van Kirk’s military career was chronicled in a 2012 book, “My True Course,” by Suzanne Dietz. Van Kirk was energetic, very bright and had a “terrific sense of humor,” Dietz recalled.
Interviewing Van Kirk for the book, she said, “was like sitting with your father at the kitchen table listening to him tell stories.”
A funeral service was held for Van Kirk on August 5th in his hometown of Northumberland, Pennsylvania where he was buried next to his wife, who died in 1975.
For the “first time” in his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama has “delivered” results that are “indisputably” positive.
Now, that is truly “ObamaCaring.”
Have you ever “wanted” to see what it feels like to have your body “consumed” by Ebola?
Have you ever wanted to “fly” right to the source of a “disease” outbreak, so you can “suffer” alongside the third world?
Have you ever thought, “It’s not fair that I don’t have Ebola just because of my lighter skin color!”
If so, “you’re in luck!”
You now can “fly” to west Africa on “Air Ebola” and “pre-infect” yourself!
Announcing the all new “Air Ebola” with “nonstop” flights to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone from “multiple” cities in America.
“Air Ebola” is not “just” the name of a new Airline. Ebola particles are actually “floating” through the air on the plane, “deposited” by previous Ebola tourists.
You can “quadruple” your chances of becoming “infected” by flying “Air Ebola.” No cleaning crews are hired by “Air Ebola” so the plane is always “extra” contagious.
Experience the following “social” platitudes while flying “Air Ebola:”
- Celebrate Ebola equality!
- Ebola Without Borders: Support free and open spread of pestilence!
- Practice Ebola Tolerance: America’s Ebola is no better than anyone else’s!
- Ebola Amnesty: America should get Ebola too!
- Ebola for All: Now whites can also suffer!
- No Justice, No Cure! Ebola as slavery revenge!
- Insurance coverage under “ObolaCare”
The “cost” of the flight to “catch” Ebola includes an extra fee for “carbon” offsets to negate the effect of “global warming” caused by your “desire” to fly to Africa.
Not only can you catch Ebola to “avenge” slavery, but you can “support” the global environment, all at once.
“Air Ebola” promotes “spread” of the disease so more people can “expire” quickly. The “existence” of fewer people will result in less carbon emissions for the planet.
“Air Ebola” is the official airline of the “Democratic National Committee” (DNC). Vote Democrat to “increase” the spread of Ebola!
Use the hashtag “#Dems4Ebola” to show your support!
Any privileged “white” American can “sacrifice” themselves for the “original” sin of slavery by flying straight to the “source” of the outbreak.
Meander with the “locals,” hang out at the “hospital,” and get “sneezed” on by an “Ebola” victim.
Once “infected,” you are free to “fly back to America” and bring the “disease” to your privileged family.
Just “tell” Customs Agents that you “have” a fever.
All airports will have lie detectors to stop people from “lying” about whether they’ve come in “contact” with Ebola.
It is what President Obama has “ordered” the TSA to do in his effort to “decimate” America’s population.
Apparently anticipating “problems” with a Democratic “turnout” on Election Day, Michelle Obama “seems to think” she knows what the issue is: “Democrat voters are ignorant and lazy.”
The first lady was speaking at a campaign rally for the Democrat candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, when she said “Democrat voters too often feel that they have more important things to do than vote – like sleeping.”
“That’s if they even realize that there’s an election being held at all.”
In an effort to “boost” turnout in November, Michelle told the crowd that she runs across voters “who are like, no, I ain’t going to vote, or I couldn’t wake up.”
But she stressed that “every” vote matters.
“So this is where — when I find people who are like, no, I ain’t going to vote, or I couldn’t wake up, or it doesn’t matter, or why — 20 votes decided who your Governor was in 2010, and it could decide who the Governor is this time.”
The first lady wasn’t finished with the “sleepy-voter” theme. Later in her remarks, she expanded on the idea.
“You know your 20 people. You know the people in your neighborhood, in your church, in your family who aren’t focused. And you can’t leave anybody behind.”
Michelle appeared “unsure” that her audience, presumably there to see her and the candidates running for office, even knew that there was a “midterm” election coming up.
“See, but then when the midterms come along — which is where we are now — too many of our people just tune out,” she told the crowd.
This “ignorance”, apparently, does not surprise the first lady. It seems like that she has been meeting people on the “campaign trail” who, in addition to “being” ignorant, just don’t want to be “bothered” with the hassle of voting.
“And sometimes, folks just aren’t informed about the issues at stake in this election. Sometimes, they just don’t know how to make their voices heard on Election Day. Some folks don’t even know there are midterm elections,” Michelle said.
In case anyone thought that was a slip, or merely a flippant remark, Michelle then “doubled down” on her concern that Democrats might actually “sleep” through Election Day.
“That nephew you know who sleeps — get him up. Wake him up. Young people, you all know folks who aren’t paying attention. Your classmates, your dorm mates — wake them up, get them out.”
It hardly bears mentioning that if Republicans “labeled” Democrat voters as either oblivious or indolent – “never mind both” – they would be “burned at the stake” alive by the mainstream media.
But, as usual, Michelle gets a “pass” from the press, but why her audience puts up with such “insults” is unfathomable.
Maybe they weren’t really “paying” attention. They probably were “catching up on their sleep” at the campaign rally.
So now Michelle has “create” this new campaign to “wake up” these folks with a bit of an “angry” spark.
Yes, like “Frankenstein,” she will re-animate the “deep sleepers” to come out and vote.
This would also help to “dispel the notion” that Barack Obama is a “lame duck” in the White House who “only is interested” in playing golf.
So, “wake up” sleepers, “Next Tuesday” is right around the corner!
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama made a “rare” appearance on the campaign trail with a “rally” to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but “early departures” of crowd members while he spoke “underscored” his continuing unpopularity.
With approval levels “hovering” around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year “raising” money for “struggling” Democrats, who risk “losing” control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.
Most candidates from his party have been “wary” of appearing with him during their election races because of his “sagging” popularity.
“You’ve got to vote,” Obama repeated “over and over” at the rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington.
Democrats have a history of not “turning up” to vote in midterm elections.
“There are no excuses. The future is up to us,” Obama said as a steady stream of people “walked out of the auditorium” while he spoke, and a heckler “interrupted” his remarks.
The old “Do something” campaign by President Barack Obama “did not work” apparently because “Democrats are sleeping too much.”
Neither did the Europeans when Obama asks them to do something.
The “Go with the Flow” campaign is the “brainchild” of students Debs Torr and Chris Dobson from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich.
This new and progressive suggestion to “save” water poses a simple question, “Why not take your first pee during your communal morning shower?”
Some “conditioning and retraining” may be required, but the “brainy” youngsters calculate the 15,000 “students” at their campus could save enough water in a year to “fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool 26 times.”
It is unclear if the “pee” is included in this estimate.
The pair want those taking part to “pledge their allegiance” on Facebook and Twitter and have offered “gift vouchers” to the first people to join the challenge.
Dobson said: “We’ve done the maths, and this project stands to have a phenomenal impact. With 15,000 students at UEA ” imagine how big an “impact” it could have if we could get everyone in East Anglia, or even the UK, to “change” their morning habits.
“The campaign has been really divisive – people either seem to love it or hate it. We’re trying to challenge conventional behavior, to start a debate on a resource that we largely take for granted.”
But what about the “health” risk?
Dobson assured everyone that “absolutely” no risk is involved. He said he’d taken “advice” from a professor and “undertaken” online research about potential health risks for people using “communal” showers.
“As long as the water is flowing there is no hygiene risk as urine is sterile but we would encourage that every person using the same shower consents to the challenge and if not that they don’t take part,” he said.
Others are not so sure.
“There are guys here at the school who like this proposal cause it’ll give them a chance to pee on me every morning!” sniffled an unnamed student.
Other youngsters were heard joking about “pissing contests” and the explosion of “lawsuits and hazing” charges certain to follow.
A UEA spokeswoman said the university supported “students in their efforts in these initiatives and encouraged all forms of enterprising, entrepreneurial and employability activity.”
The toiling masses have two more “icons” to gaze upon in “awe and admiration.”
The Nobel committee has already “created” a new prize! You may thought “urine is trouble” but now we know “it’s safe.”
Let’s hope “everyone” is looking forward year after year of “urinating” in the shower!
