I heartily approve.

US Suicide Bomber urges fellow Americans to join jihad in Syria.
Then he blew himself up.

The State Department confirmed in May that a U.S. citizen from Florida launched a suicide bombing against Syrian government troops earlier this week. Moner Mohammad Abusalha of South Florida was identified as the alleged suicide bomber in Syria, according to the New York Times. Abusalha was from Ft. Pierce, Florida but traveled to Syria late last year with a group of Americans.

Moner Abusalha had a facebook page.

I have to admit, I’m in favor of jihadis blowing themselves up killing state-sponsors of terrorism.

Since the Syrian civil war changed from Teh Peepul yearning to be free into a jihadi free-for-all, I’ve been happy about them killing each other in horrible ways.

Now to have an American jihadi going to Syria to blow himself and some Syrian gov’t thugs up instead of trying to do that in America? Well, that’s my favorite kind of some.

Awe.

But then, I’m kind of a dick.

Important Update Below!!!!!!

Don’t forget, before our fine Minitrue betters were lying for Obama and Hamas, they were lying for Saddam.

For example, in the mid-1990’s one of our Iraqi cameramen was abducted. For weeks he was beaten and subjected to electroshock torture in the basement of a secret police headquarters because he refused to confirm the government’s ludicrous suspicion that I was the Central Intelligence Agency’s Iraq station chief. CNN had been in Baghdad long enough to know that telling the world about the torture of one of its employees would almost certainly have gotten him killed and put his family and co-workers at grave risk.

 

You see, they needed access, so lying for Saddam gave them access. They never seemed to question whether the “access” was worth the lies. Recall also that Foxnews left Iraq without explaining why. But they’re Fauxnews and CNN is all good and shit.

Keep that story in mind when you read stories about Hamas.

Hell, even Foxnews, and not just nitwits like Shep, are saying stuff like, “Israel says that Hamas is using human shields. Meanwhile, a brazillion civilians died in Israeli rocket strikes” without noting that it’s Hamas giving the world the “civilian” casualty numbers and who killed them.

A little primer on who’s killing who that I’ve seen in a few places this morning.

The media immediately took the Hamas line that it was Israeli missiles. Later, the IDF stated that it had not fired on those locations, and that the explosions were misfired Hamas or Islamic Jihad missiles.

The media played it as he said, he said.

But an Italian journalist has just left Gaza and is telling the truth about what happened now that he needs not fear Hamas retaliation — Israel was right (h/t Israelly Cool):

 

The media is so used to lying against people who believe in individual freedom and responsiblity that they no longer care who they’re lying for.

I will say that my paranoia is getting worse. Even our fine, ignorant, minitrue betters are noticing that Obama’s fecklessness and retirement is not helping the world stay peaceful.

Whenever minnitrue notices something that makes their God-President look bad, it’s after it’s become insoluble.

Which brings up impeachment, does anybody think things would be better if he were impeached? President Joe Biden (wrap your head around that) would keep the same people who are actually running the gov’t in place so we’d lose a retired president to get one who’s well into Energetic and Stupid

 

Important Update For Our “Readers” Living In Texas!!!!!!!!!1

emergency!!!!!!

During my insanely long commute to work (and a little in the mornings at work before my phone starts ringing off the hook), I’ve been listening to podcasts to keep my brain from completely turning to mush.

I use and recommend the BeyondPod app for Android.  A few months ago I upgraded to the premium version, which I feel was well worth it.  Now I can queue multiple downloads and can adjust the playback speed. I generally listen at 1.1x speed.

For better or worse, here’s my current list. Feedback greatly appreciated.

  • Ace of Spades – (weekly for the most part) – The best part of waking up on Friday.
  • Coffee and Markets – (daily podcast) – Suffering from a dearth of Ben Domenech, but still pretty good.
  • Ricochet – both the “flagship”/namesake one, and GLOP.
  • AEI’s “Banter”
  • Econtalk
  • Uncommon Knowledge
  • The Tim Ferriss Show – Author of the “four hour” books.
  • The James Altucher Show
  • Freakanomics
  • Mark Levin Radio Show – Sporadically when I think ML might have special insight into a topic, or the show title grabs me.

I just added “Mad Dogs and Englishmen” to my queue and will be trying that out tomorrow. I also have the TED app, which allows TED talks to be downloaded. Don’t use it too much, but have been meaning to.

I’d throw up links, but (1) it’s probably just as easy to search from your podcast app and (2) I’m lazy.

Given my areas of interest, I am reminded again of why I have no friends.

Suggestions?

The old question, is Obama’s fecklessness maliciousness or incompetence?

Me? I figure on domestic issues it’s maliciousness, in international affairs he’s far too ignorant for it to be anything but incompetence.

 

As if to just disprove my point, this new tack  is maliciousness,

Obama Administration Threatens Israel Over Criticism of Kerry’s Peace Deal

But…that’s not really foreign policy, that’s about being pissed off someone is pointing out his and J Effin Kerry’s incompetent ignorance.

 

Via our second favorite weasels, Zippers, his ain’t new, Global Warmmongers know all about flaming irony.

Thousands gather at Rabin Square to call for return to dialog, but disperse early as Gaza rocket-fire resumes

 

Nice touch.

Well this is new.

As European diplomats prepare to meet on July 29, signs are emerging that the European Union is finally moving towards the consensus needed for tougher measures against Russian President Vladimir Putin to punish his war against Ukraine.

 

Wait, I’d bet that’s old. Wishful thinking is very old. Why do I say that?

Ukraine has, so far, continued to send gas to EU member states through the pipelines that cross its territory.

 

That’s why. What happens when Tsar Putin I raises prices to pay for the sanctions?

Veeshir laughs, that’s what. I’m kind of  a dick though.

Via Paco, an old event in a new light.

people's cube haha

Everything old is new again.

 

This site is new to me.

It’s a pretty cool site that’s sort of artsy-fartsy in a millenial sort of way, so I expected it to be reflexively lefty.

Not new is that I was wrong.

ka-ching border

 

They’re even on the side of civilization against the new barbarians. I did not expect that. As I saw the top of that post I was expecting exactly the opposite reaction.

Also not new? Driving up the hit count via hotassery.

What’s going to blow up first? Seriously, things are accelerating out there. I know I’m a doomsayer, but that’s just my learned behavior.

Not much endy today, just a few chucklers as I’m trying not to pay too much attention, I want to be surprised.

So as the EUnuchs are frowning at the Russians over murdering some of them, this

Ukrainian nationalist leader Dmytro Yarosh has been placed on Interpol’s wanted list at the request of Russian authorities. According to the notice, he faces two charges “by the judicial authorities of Russia” for “public incitement to terrorist activities involving the use of mass media” and “public incitement to extremist activities involving the use of mass media.”

 

That guy was in charge of people who kept the previous Ukrainian tsarling from murdering the protestors who were against returning to SSR status so you can pretty much assume the “extremist activities” are “resisting Russian aggression.”

Way to make Putin shake in his jackboots there EUnuchs

 

 

I gotta wonder if the Lebanese will turn against the Party of God over this.

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that his party will provide the resistance in Gaza, which is facing a devastating Israeli offensive, with any support it might need.

Recall a few years ago when Israel blew up southern Lebanon over shit like this. Methinks the Lebanese are watching Israel blowing up Gaza and they might be remembering what life is like on the blown up end of an artillery range and the Israelis are obviously in no mood to take any shit from those barbarians.

 

Obama is feckless and useless which is giving all the bad guys a free pass, why shouldn’t the good guys ignore him too?

Speaking of which, Aussies!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will send troops to eastern Ukraine to protect Australian federal police officers working at the MH17 crash site.

Good for them.

Chinese river turns to blood, I wonder if they skipped the rain of frogs or if the Chinese just ate them?

 

A drudgetaposition.

GOP 2016 quandary, why no women candidates?

TMZ freaks out on Sarah Palin: ‘Bitch,’ ‘Horrible Mom,’ ‘Dumb’

 

Bigger, faster rides may be hitting their peak!!!!!

Yeah, we’ve know about that for a long time here at DPUD

Once Action Park closed it’s been downhill since.

 

Today’s LOL from the Outrider, Karmic irony is pretty darn funny

 

I very rarely LOL but there’s not much else to do.

Remember, schaden is the only freude we’re getting anymore.

Eminently Updatable

Posted: July 25, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, Obama's Fault

I have some stuff to do later so I’ll probably/possibly update this post, but I have one thing to say.

Whenever someone compares how Ronnie Raygun handled the last time the Russians shot down a commercial airliner to how Obama has (not) handled this time, all Obama’s defenders keep saying, “Reagan didn’t speak for 5 days!!!!!!!!!!

 

Flight 17 was shot down 11 8 days ago and Obama still has not said or done shit.

So what did Obama say about this act 5 days after Tsar Putin I’s Cossacks shot down a plane? I don’t feel like checking but I have a feeling it involved golf and fundraising.

I checked and here’s his statement.

Obviously, we’re all heartbroken by what’s happened.  And this is an opportunity for me to extend on behalf of all the American people our deepest condolences over the loss of family and friends; to express our solidarity with the people of the Netherlands, with whom we’ve been friends and had the deepest ties for centuries; and to assure the Dutch people that we will work with them to make sure that loved ones are recovered, that a proper investigation is conducted, and that ultimately justice is done.

Bring who to justice?  How?

And what was he doing?

The President arrives Seattle, Washington
Local Event Time:

3:15 PM

Boeing Field International Airport
Open to pre-credentialed media
8:05 pm
The President attends a DNC event
Local Event Time:

5:05 PM

Private Residence – Seattle
Print Pool
9:00 pm
The President attends a Senate Majority PAC roundtable
Local Event Time:

6:00 PM

Private Residence – Bellevue
Closed Press

So fundraising, maybe he practiced his putz on the flight to Seattle.

To the White House folks who are wondering who to punish for this, notice the name. It’s Veeshir. Make sure you spell my name right on my IRS audit.

Striking a bold move, Michigan Congressman Kerry Bentivolio returned his Chamber of Commerce award.

Daily Caller:
“If you notice, they call it the Spirit of Enterprise award, not the Spirit of Free Enterprise Award,” [Bentivolio's chief of staff Rob] Wasinger told The Daily Caller via email. “Crony capitalism is alive and well at the Chamber of Commerce.”

Naturally, the Chamber now supports his opponent.

Just in case you were confused about who the good guy is here, Bentivolio has quite a respectable conservative report card with an ACU score of 88, a Club for Growth score of 88, and a Heritage Action score of 83.

As previously discussed, the Chamber is also attempting to primary Justin Amash, who sports even more impressive credentials with an ACU score of 89.22, a Club for Growth score of 99, and a Heritage Action score  of 89.  The Club for Growth has explicitly endorsed Amash in the primary.
