While all eyes were on Sin City …

Daily Bob LogoBy Bob Eschliman


The lamestream media would like you to believe all eyes were on Las Vegas and the Democrats’ presidential primary debate. In reality, most of them were probably on Twitter, watching Donald Trump react to the debate, but I digress.

There was a whole world out there that needed watching, especially with so much potential danger for our nation today. I’ve done my best to not get distracted by the shiny objects so you won’t be, either. I mean, The Donald is going to be hosting Saturday Night Live next month … oh, wait.

Well, read on anyway and be sure to keep things straight.


Five Things You Need to Know Today

  1. But What’s Code Puce Mean? — Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson wants to have a review of the color-coded terror warning system implemented after 9/11 to see if it can “accommodate how the terrorism threat has evolved” in the domestic United States. The Obama Administration replaced the color-coded system with a two-tier system of “elevated” or “imminent,” which was never actually used. CLICK HERE for the full story.
  2. Call Chuck Grassley — While our senior senator has been focused on “criminal justice reform” (it’s almost as bad as it sounds), the Department of Justice has been busy making sure you get screwed over (again and again). This time, the DOJ wants to remove the anti-trust monitor that was put in place after Apple got caught conspiring on e-book prices. Because, apparently, there’s nothing to worry about (sound familiar?). CLICK HERE for the full story.
  3. Should He Be Protected? — The U.S. Secret Service is charged with protecting the President of the United States. Typically, this protection is extended to both members of the Constitutional Line of Succession, as well as the nominees of the two major parties. Donald Trump is nowhere near the GOP nomination, yet, but does have a $100 million bounty on his head from Mexican drug lord El Chapo, which has a number of security experts concerned. During an interview Tuesday with The Hill, he weighed in on the issue. CLICK HERE for the full story.
  4. With ‘Friends’ Like This — New York Times columnist David Brooks, who was RINO long before it was fashionable for the GOP elites, wrote in Tuesday’s column that actual conservatives are “dangerous” to our country. Yes, he actually wrote that. And you wonder why we tell you they hate you more than they do Democrats. CLICK HERE for the full story.
  5. ‘Die Dirty Faggy’ — An aide to U.S. Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) was arrested in Baltimore for allegedly beating his male “lover” with a shovel. Tom Foster, who is married (to a woman) left the other man (who is black) hospitalized with wounds to his upper back, neck, and torso after allegedly stating, “I want to kill you. Die dirty faggy.” CLICK HERE for the full story.


The Story No One is Talking About Today (But Should Be)

The U.S. Government will run out of pretend money (in reality, it’s asking you and me to extend it a new line of credit) on Nov. 5. And now it’s looking less and less likely there will be a budget solution — despite the fact Republicans control both the House and the Senate — between now and then.

Kicking the can down the road is the official pass time of Washington, DC, so you shouldn’t really be surprised. But, the establishment elites inside the Beltway are now beginning to completely freak out about another government shutdown.

Quote of the Day

I go further, and affirm that bills of rights, in the sense and to the extent in which they are contended for, are not only unnecessary in the proposed Constitution, but would even be dangerous. They would contain various exceptions to powers not granted; and on this very account, would afford a colorable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do?

— Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 84, 1788
