The other Washington Commander

 (My new American Thinker post)

As a kid who grew up watching Rin Tin Tin, I find this whole story about Commander rather fascinating. I am not talking about the team formerly known as the Redskins, but rather that German Shepherd in the White House.

As you may know, the Biden dog has been misbehaving and attacking Secret Service agents. There is even talk of putting down Commander, or at least Katie Pavlich thinks that’s the right thing to do:

Earlier this year, government watchdog Judicial Watch revealed Commander, now a fully grown two-year-old German Shepherd, attacked White House personnel at least ten times.

‘Judicial Watch announced today that it received 194 pages of records from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revealing 10 attacks by President Joe Biden’s German Shepherd, Commander, on officers of the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) between October 2022 and January 2023,’ Judicial Watch released in July. ‘In several cases, the agents required medical care, including at a hospital.’

This week, it happened again.

The hard truth is, any other dog would have been put down by now. Instead, Commander is allowed to continue his reign of terror at the White House. Too harsh? Dogs are euthanized for attacking other dogs. Commander has attacked people 11 times, inflicting serious injuries needing extensive medical care.

Well, let’s add Commander to the growing list of Biden concerns. So what do you do with a German Shepherd attacking the guys protecting the president? Well, let me make some suggestions:

Commander could be assigned to Border Patrol to help that overwhelmed agency control the border, or Joe Biden could bring Commander to future meetings with NATO leaders not paying their share of the arrangement.

And last but not least, perhaps the new management of the NFL’s Washington Commanders should be advised that maybe the team should change their name back to the Redskins, because the canine Commander is giving the name a nasty reputation.

Who knew that we’d be posting about the White House dog biting people? Only in a crazy place they call Washington, where Congressmen “accidentally“ activating fire alarms and dogs attack their master’s protectors.

Happy # 82 Chubby Checker

We say happy birthday to Chubby Checker who was born in South Carolina on this day in 1941. 

I don't remember this song but I love song stories.  Chubby Checker's "The Twist" has an amazing story:    
"The song that would make Checker rich and famous—"The Twist"—had been a non-hit in 1958 for its writer, Hank Ballard, best known for 1954's "Work With Me Annie," which was then considered filthy enough to warrant an FCC ban. 
Believing "The Twist" to be a potential smash, but unwilling to have the controversial Ballard on his American Bandstand, Dick Clark picked the wholesome Chubby Checker to record a cover. 
With the help of Clark's tireless on-air promotion, "The Twist" turned Chubby Checker into an overnight success when it shot to the top of the Billboard pop chart in September 1960.
As all hit records do, "The Twist" then faded away. The dance craze it popularized did, too, as America's teenagers moved on to things like the Mashed Potato and the Pony. 
Chubby Checker had a second #1 hit just five months after "The Twist" with "Pony Time," and then something remarkable happened. 
A full year after the initial success of "The Twist," a gossip item in the New York papers placed actress Merle Oberon and the elderly exile Prince Serge Obolensky of Russia at the Peppermint Lounge, Twisting the night away. Suddenly a fad was reborn—this time among American adults, who took to the Twist with an alacrity that must have provoked uncountable cringes among their teenaged children.  
Soon enough, "The Twist" began a remarkable second run up the charts, reclaiming the #1 spot on January 13 and finally relinquishing it on this day in 1962. 
It was the first and only time a pop single has fallen completely out of Billboard's "Hot 100" only to re-attain the #1 spot in a completely separate release."
Here is the song.
