Bill Clinton pretending to be a
vegan so he can talk
about being a vegan

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 9/4/2013 11:24:01 AM

President Bill Clinton has been telling everyone he is a vegan since 2009, but it turns out Clinton’s a liar. The former president, who has been enlisted to sell the nation on Obamacare, told reporters that he was joining his daughter, Chelsea, in an all vegan diet after he had had heart trouble. He was even named PETA’s person of the year in 2010. But in a recent interview with AARP, Clinton said he ate salmon and omelets once a week. “Once a week or so, [Clinton] will have a helping of organic salmon or an omelet made with omega-3-fortified eggs,

I love that "once a week or so".

Almost as good as the meaning of "is".

If Bubba told me today was Wednesday I´d still check it.

OK. I´ll bite. What an organic salmon? Would a bear eat one? The only time he´d pretend to be a vegan is to pick up a left wing chick. Think I´ll have a Triple Bacon Ateror with cheese for lunch.

My guess is that the problem is more simple and he just doesn´t understand the distinction between "vegan" and "vegitarian".

A vegitarian diet that includes milk, cheese, and eggs (some vegitarians also eat fish) can be a healthy and sustainable diet. A vegan diet that not only excludes meat but any animal-based foods including milk, eggs, and even honey (those poor enslaved bees forced to make it), on the other hand, can actually harm the health of adults and particularly children, and is pretty foolish.

“He evangelizes about his vegan diet and being healthy,” the younger Clinton told Rose. “He’s not just trending vegan, he’s vegan,” said Rose.

as someone in the comments section after the article (video) said, "i´m a vegetarian right up until i get to the steak." clinton is that kind of vegetarian/vegan. the comments after the article were by and large hilarious - interspersed with humorless sanctimonious comments by professed vegans/liberals. even their comments were good because they prompted great come-backs by conservatives, historians and carnivores.

It´s not just those teeth, #8. All mammals which are carnivores or omnivores (predators) have eyes which are located on the front of the head to assist in hunting. Think wolves, cats, dogs. All vegetarian mammals (prey) have eyes located on the sides of the head so that they can keep a lookout for the predators while grazing. Horses, for instance, have almost 360 degrees of visual range. This applies to some birds as well, such as owls and other raptors.

I love it when sanctimonious vegetarians or vegans start spouting off because I can then say, "Wow, you don´t look like a vegetarian!" Then I tell them what I just wrote above. They are so into "natural foods" but it´s completely unnatural for humans to be vegetarians. It blows all the wind right out of their sails and leaves them speechless.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
