1000 Bottles of Wine on the Wall

We break from presidential politics to bring you this important news from the world of medical research: Scientists are close to developing a pill that delivers the concentrated benefits of resveratrol, the component in red wine thought to be beneficial to health.


Scientists on opposite sides of the globe appear to be getting closer to harnessing one of red wine’s most elusive health-giving ingredients and putting it into a pill.

The ingredient, resveratrol, has been touted for years for its ostensible powers to prolong life and protect against a range of ailments including heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies pointing to those benefits have been performed in laboratories on yeast, worms, fruit flies and mice, among other organisms. (snip)


Testing those benefits in humans has proved more complex. Resveratrol occurs naturally in red wine at such low concentrations, and in combination with so many other substances, that studying its health benefits among wine drinkers isn’t practical. And purified resveratrol is broken down in the liver so quickly that it must be given at very high concentrations to prove effective. (snip)

A recent human study that suggested resveratrol could slow the progression of Alzheimer’s used a daily dose equivalent to the amount in about 1,000 bottles of red wine, says Scott Turner, director of the Memory Disorders Program at Georgetown University Medical Center. (snip)

Now, scientists hope to overcome that problem by increasing the potency of resveratrol at more moderate doses…They are developing a pill that combines purified resveratrol with other compounds in wine in an effort to mimic the drink’s naturally-occurring synergies. (snip)

Alberto Bertelli, a professor in the department of biomedical sciences for health at the University of Milan, says what happens to resveratrol in red wine when it enters the body “is sort of a mystery,” but he believes that alcohol could help it get into the bloodstream more effectively.

Read the whole report if you’d like, butt while they’re still working on it, I suggest you try the treatment with proven results. Enjoy the 1000 bottles of red wine.


When they’re gone, if you’re not in perfect health, refill the prescription.



And just a suggestion: given the state of her health, I think Hillary should switch to the red wine “therapy.”


And not that it’s a biggie or anything butt between BO, MO and HIll they have over 23 years of experience occupying the White House. Doesn’t the Office of Protocol teach the proper way to hold a wine glass anymore?

Maybe the non-drinking candidate can show them how it should be done.

Righteous Indignation To Follow

With a new guy on the campaign staff we finally see what The Donald’s critics and enemies have been demanding - the “pivot” to “presidential” speech. 

Addressing Policies:

Tonight, I’d like to talk about the New American Future we are going to create together.

Last week, I laid out my plan to bring jobs back to our country.

On Monday, I laid out my plan to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism.

On Tuesday, in Wisconsin, I talked about how we are going to restore law and order to this country.


Every single citizen in our land has a right to live in safety.

To be one united nation, we must protect all of our people. But we must also provide opportunities for all of our people.

We cannot make America Great Again if we leave any community behind.

Nearly Four in ten African-American children are living in poverty.I will not rest until children of every color in this country are fully included in the American Dream.

Jobs, safety, opportunity. Fair and equal representation. This is what I promise to African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and all Americans.

But to achieve this New American Future we must break from the failures of the past. . . .

Legitimate media criticism:

The establishment media doesn’t cover what really matters in this country, or what’s really going on in people’s lives. They will take words of mine out of context and spend a week obsessing over every single syllable, and then pretend to discover some hidden meaning in what I said.

Just imagine for a second if the media spent this energy holding the politicians accountable who got innocent Americans like Kate Steinle killed – she was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times.

Just imagine if the media spent this much time investigating the poverty and joblessness in our inner cities.

Just think about how much different things would be if the media in this country sent their cameras to our border, or to our closing factories, or to our failing schools. Or if the media focused on what dark secrets must be hidden in the 33,000 emails Hillary Clinton deleted.

Instead, every story is told from the perspective of the insiders. It’s the narrative of the people who rigged the system, never the voice of the people it’s been rigged against

Reining in his ego:

So again, it’s not about me. It’s never been about me. It’s about all the people in this country who don’t have a voice.

I am running to be their voice.

I am running to be the voice for every forgotten part of this country that has been waiting and hoping for a better future.

I am glad that I make the powerful a little uncomfortable now and again – including some powerful people in my own party. Because it means I am fighting for real change.

There’s a reason the hedge fund managers, the financial lobbyists, the Wall Street investors, are throwing their money at Hillary Clinton. Because they know she will make sure the system stays rigged in their favor.

It’s the powerful protecting the powerful.

The insiders fighting for the insiders.

I am fighting for you.

But we can never fix our problems by relying on the same politicians who created these problems in the first place. See/Read the whole thing.

So what are his critics/enemies complaining about now? “He just read it off a teleprompter. Anybody can read a speech.”


breitbart on hypocrisy

Donald Trump would like to officially welcome you to the Brietbart Era:

“I like being liked, who doesn’t? But I love being hated.”

America Burns. Obama Plays Through. Again.

As you know, the Won has vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard every summer he’s been in office - with the exception of 2012 when he was busy appearing to care about your pain. Still, it’s uncanny how similar this summer resembles news stories from two years ago: another city in fly-over country is engulfed in race-based riots following a police-involved shooting of another thug.

milwaukee-rioting-fires-600Look familiar? It’s Milwaukee. Could just as easily be Ferguson though. Or anywhere.

So I thought “what the heck, if history is going to repeat itself every summer why shouldn’t I?” So here, a rerun of the Dancing Queens: Mama Mia! as originally posted August 15, 2014:

Dancing Queen: ABBA

Who would have predicted that in the 6th 8th Year of Obama there would be race-fueled rioting and looting going on in America’s heartland while the American President danced and golfed on Martha’s Vineyard?

bo golf and dance on the vineyardsYou can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

And speaking of Dancing Queens, I suppose you’ve heard that David Gregory is officially leaving Meet the Press in order to spend more time dancing with his family?

s-DANCE-DAVID-GREGORY-largeYou're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone

He will be replaced by the highly respected JournOlist Chuck Todd

chuck toddYou come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy

So, fans of Meet the Press, meet your new toad:

chuck todd muppet

same as your old toad:


And good luck Chucky, you’ve got some really big shoes to fill here:

APTOPIX Psy performs on TODAY

So here’s my humble advice, Chuck; brush up on your dance steps, and soon you’ll be dancin’ with the stars too.

bo does beyonce dance[3]You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen


UPDATE: Although Chuck’s new show was preempted for the Olympics last week, and will be again next Sunday, I’m sure he’s doing great. For every hair follicle he loses, he gains 2 pounds of gravitas.


Which is just proof that you need more than good hair and an ammo “clip” to make it in the tough world of network news.

Biff Spackle Explains #NeverTrump

As you know, I wasn’t a Trumpster right from the start, butt I’ve long held that the #NeverTrump cabal is really the #HillaryByProxy krewe (as seen here, here, and here).

Now, Biff Spackle, via DougRoss@Journal (who definitely was NOT a Trumpster at the beginning), has an 8-Panel illustration of precisely what the #NeverTrump cabal is determined to accomplish:

160814-never-trump1See The Rest Here

Maybe Mark Levin saw Biff’s toon too, as he seems to be inching his way in off the #NeverTrump ledge:

“These are really good things he’s saying!”; Mark Levin Praises Trump’s ISIS speech:  (h/t: Larwyn’s Linx) and “Mark Levin Gives High Marks To Trump Speech And #NeverTrump Brands Him A Heretic” (h/t:BFH@iOTWREPORT)

I sure HOPE #NeverTrumpers are coming to their senses. No matter how you cut it, no matter how you feel about the candidates, this election is a binary decision.

Something the good folks of Newberry, S.C. apparently already know.

“I Ain’t No Ways Tired”

How does a capable, hardworking, diligent, smart, tenacious leader relax? Try seven rounds of golf (so far), 5 nights out (Sunday Down Island, Tuesday State Road, Friday L'etoile, Saturday Red Cat Kitchen, Sunday Lola's) and a fundraiser for his heir apparent:

The President said while the first lady is strict about him actually taking a vacation when they are on vacation, he was there because it is “absolutely critical that we have a capable, hardworking, diligent, smart, tenacious leader in the Oval Office.”

hillary tired“I ain’t no ways tired”

And now this breaking news from the Gateway Pundit: Exhausted Hillary Is Taking Weekends Off.

Clinton took the weekend of August 6th and 7th off and she decided to take three days off this past weekend August 12th through 14th.  She also has no events scheduled to participate in this coming Thursday through Saturday August 18th through 20th.

Rest well Hill, everyone knows how hard you have to work once you become president.

When You’re Up To Your Armpits in Alligators

I’d like to interrupt the lack of news reports on the Obamas-on-vacation-on-Martha’s-Vineyard for an important update on the green slime problem at the Rio Olympic diving pool.

rio algae poolWhoops! That’s not the look we were going for.

Apparently it’s just algae. Some guy dumped 40 gallons of hydrogen peroxide into the pool by mistake and that neutralized the chlorine which allowed the algae to grow like, well, algae. We have been assured that while the pool “smells like farts” it’s quite harmless.

And as you may recall, we LOVE algae! After wind, solar and corn, it’s our favorite alternative fuel du jour. I think the Rio Olympic hosts were simply helping Barry advance his 17% Pond Scum solution:


"We’re making new investments in the development of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel that’s actually made from a plant-like substance, algae – you've got a bunch of algae out here. If we can figure out how to make energy out of that, we'll be doing alright. Believe it or not, we could replace up to 17 percent of the oil we import for transportation with this fuel that we can grow right here in America.

As anyone who has had to clean a swimming pool or fish tank knows, algae grow quickly. All they need is light, carbon dioxide, and a little water to grow like, well, weeds.”

lab-grown-algae-in-jars_thumb1The Greening of America: an algae in every pot – and soon, every pool!

Wait! I thought the received wisdom of man-made global warming/cooling/climate change was that carbon dioxide was the bad guy. How can that be if we need it to grow our green alternative fuel supply? The very fuel that is supposed to replace the fossil fuels that create so much carbon dioxide that they created global warming in the first place? This is getting complicated, I don’t think I’ve ever encountered both the zero sum and the circular reasoning fallacies in one argument. That certainly leaves no loose ends.

circular arguments leave no loose ends

Anyhoo, it looks like the Rio hosts have come up with a solution for the 17% solution: they’re going to drain the pool and start over with fresh water. Good idea.


And good luck with the rest of the alligators.

The Explainer-in-Chief Does What He Does Best

Bill Clinton recently updated his January 26, 1998 response to allegations that he had *ahem* sexual relations with “that woman,” Monica Lewinski:

It’s “the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard,” said Hillary Clinton’s consort-of-sorts.

And that goes double for the accusations being recklessly hurled at Hillary by that FBI pimp, Comey:

 “They saw two little notes with a ‘C’ on it — this is the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard — that were about telephone calls that she needed to make. The State Department typically puts a little ‘C’ on it to discourage people from discussing it in public in the event the secretary of state, whoever it is, doesn’t make a telephone call. Does that sound threatening to the national security to you?”

That’s good! Really good. No wonder Barry called Bubba “the explainer-in-chief” – he’s awesome! And it’s a good thing. ‘Cuz somebody’s gonna have a whole lot of ‘splainin to do around here.
