Obama’s Dirty Iran Deal

Alan Howell Parrot, CIA whistleblower, tells Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, killed in Benghazi, that Barack Obama and Joe Biden sent Iran $152 billion as a coverup for the deaths of Seal Team 6.

World of Beers X

On tap tonight: Old Czech, Mongolia.

The punchline here is recycled from an Australian beer commercial, but we thought it would be more fun, and exotic, to show the Mongolian variation. Who knew they stocked their yurts with beer?
