Yes!  It is a big news day.  Recreationally, you may have heard about yesterday’s release of Miley Cyrus’ new music video where she parades around half-naked licking sledge hammers suggestively.

Yeah, we were among nearly 20 million who watched it.  In HD.

We’re sure her daddy is so proud of his little girl and her decision-making skills.


In gun-related stuff:

The Colorado recall elections targeting the Democrat Senate President John Morse and Angela Giron are today.  Lots of money has poured in and the early good news as far as gun rights is the turnout among Republicans has be very strong and steady.

CO Dem: Gun Control Doomed if Recall Succeeds

(Breitbart) – Heading into the September 10th recall elections of Colorado state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colorado Springs), it is important for voters to remember Giron’s admission that if either she or Morse falls it will be detrimental to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control dreams.

Giron’s said: “For Mayors Against Illegal Guns, if they even lose one of these seats, they might as well fold it up. And they understand that.”

Her comments came in a New Republic report from late August, around the same time that Bloomberg was dumping $350,000 into helping Giron and Morse stave off Colorado voters.

Maybe Colorado voters need to take Giron’s words to heart and think about it this way: a vote for Giron is a vote to prop up Bloomberg’s machine for future gun control pushes around the country, while a vote against Giron is a vote to stop Bloomberg’s runaway gun control agenda.

Convicted perjurer Shellie Zimmerman may face new charges

Shellie Zimmerman says her estranged husband threatened her and her parents with a gun.

(USA Today) – The estranged wife of George Zimmerman opted not to press charges against her husband Monday after police in Florida responded to her sobbing 911 call reporting he had punched her father and was threatening them with a gun.

…Police allowed Zimmerman to go free Monday afternoon after questioning him outside the home where Shellie Zimmerman placed the 911 call. Police Chief Steve Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman and her father decided not to press charges after consulting with an attorney.

Cops found no gun.

How big of her not to seek charges.

Maybe it’s time to charge her.

(ABC Action News) – Lake Mary Police are now questioning the validity of several statements Shellie Zimmerman made when she told 911 dispatchers her estranged husband, George Zimmerman, threatened her and her father at gunpoint Monday afternoon.

“We did not find a gun, did not locate a weapon,” said Zach Hudson, public information officer with the Lake Mary Police Department.  “Nobody ever saw a gun. A gun is not part of this story.”

Still, a gun was at the crux of the account Shellie Zimmerman provided to 911 dispatchers when calling for help.

“He continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying, ‘Step closer.’  He is just threatening all of us,”  Shellie can be heard telling dispatchers.
