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.

For a long time the FEOCE was pretty much just going staying steady state, things weren’t changing. 2 months ago I could have taken a post from last year and posted it word for word and link for link and nobody would have noticed, even if this was the kind of blog where people clicked the links and read the posts.

But now? Things are changing and it’s not getting prettier.

Ebola in Sierra Leone is being mostly ignored and it shouldn’t be.

 

A doctor in charge of an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone has been admitted to hospital after contracting the deadly virus himself, the health ministry said Wednesday.

The news comes just days after three nurses from the same facility died of the disease, which has killed hundreds of people throughout west Africa and continues to spread.

That can’t be good.

All manner of diseases are spreading in new and horrible ways, like MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) may be airborne. That means you don’t need actual contact to get it. That’s how plagues get really bad.

Of course, the way things are going that’ll just make the rubble bounce.

America has lost all respect in the world.

An unusual screening process occurred involving Kerry and his State Department team as they were subjected to a metal detector before meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at the Egyptian presidential palace.

 

That’s not about security, it’s about a calculated insult to the representative of America. A competent Sec State would have said, “Fuck you.” and walked away, but Kerry is anything but intelligent or competent. Think, Joe Biden with better hair and a richer wife.

Russia is showing that, what with Obama calling for people to RESPECT HIS AUTHORITAH!!! and Putin laughing at him.

China is noticing the New World Order and getting more and more assertive in the South China Sea.

China’s unyielding commitment to gaining control over contested territory and its disdain for subjecting itself to rules that put it on an equal footing with much smaller states mean that hopes of successfully negotiating a binding CoC (Code of Conduct…to ‘promote peace and stability in the region.’ V) are illusionary.

 

Expansionistic, murderous commie dictators tend to act murderous and expansionistic. I was reading a book, I forget which one, and they noted that China is not really commie, they’re and industrial fuedalistic society, which misses the point that that’s what commie dictatorships always become no matter how much they mouth commie pieties.

There is one ray of interesting out there.  I use Lebanon Now! because they’re generally much more trustworthy than the any American outlet, so that makes this even more interesting.

Fast-forward to ISIS and the unfolding tragedy of Iraqi Christians. The uprooting and destruction of Christian communities in Iraq has sent shockwaves through social media and throughout the world. What is particularly infuriating about the tragic fate of Iraqi Christians is that they had remained neutral in the ongoing conflict.

 

They list stuff from the Bible that Christians generally don’t take literally anymore and then list stuff from the Koran that Islamic terrorists quote to justify their actions.

I’ve been called all manner of things for noticing that, it’s interesting that a Muslim outlet is noticing it. I think it’s too late to do any good, but it might mean there’s hope for Lebanon. I try to like Lebanon but they let their Jew-Hatred get away, if they would stop that there might be hope for them.

 

America, of course, is going the other way. Some border patrol types get all Stasi on some Boy Scouts for having the temerity to think they live in a free country.

A Boy Scout took a picture of some border patrol assholes. The border patrol types said it was illegal (It isn’t) and drew a gun on a Boys Scout. They’re denying one of their OberFuhrers did that, but I know who I believe. Especially considering what we’ve seen these days.

An interesting article highlighting that.

Headline

US Government Turns Fully Against Americans and Few Seem to Care

Yeah, we’ve been noticing that, but as it keeps getting worse, more and more are noticing it.

Consider who Obama’s trying to exacerbate the border situation by not telling anybody anything.

Governor Terry Branstad (R-IA) again blasted the Obama administration for secretly dumping illegal immigrant children to the state.

 

Listen proles, we’re from the gov’t and we’re not here to help you, we’re here to rule you.

Interesting times. Now consider this, life is imitating a Stephen King novel.

A new wristband design will deliver an electric shock if the wearer does not meet fitness goals.

 

In Quitters Inc. you lose a finger if you don’t do what you’re supposed to, so this is just a step back.

All I know is I ain’t going down no storm drains without a turtle to help me.

You have to love the dim look on Kerry’s face and pissed off look on Netanyahu’s. I figure Bibi is thinking, “What a putz.” but then, he doesn’t seem to use invective like your average Moron.

Popular Culture Update :

Desyfycation: That feeling when you’re decided that SyFy movies are just not good enough to overcome the relentless leftist agitprop.

I’ll still watch some older ones, but I’m not watching any newer ones.

And while I’m whining about relentless leftist bullshit on TV shows, fuck you Castle (terrorism in NYC done by military members who want to restart the War on (Some) Terror) and fuck you Supernatural for bashing John McCain and fuck you Family Guy for constantly bashing the Tea Party.

I’m done with all of them. If they want to attack me personally they can get their audiences from the high-earning members of the Occutards living in their parents’ basements.

Update To The Update Update!

Apparently, I’m not alone.

Less than six weeks before Labor Day, hopes for recovery at the North American summer box office have evaporated.

I’ll tell you what sup.

Life imitates Camus!

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague

 

Ugh.  These are people who have less regard for life than French colonizers, that’s not going to end well.

 

So not only is Tsar Putin I’s state media (they’re like MSNBC  and CNN but they have to be forced to lie for their Dear Leader) lying ridiculously about his Cossacks shooting down a civilian plane, but now he’s sick and tired of Teh Peepul acting all upset and stuff.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed several laws on July 22, increasing liability for separatism and violation of regulations for holding rallies.

 

I just hope Obama does not get any ideas on that.

You have to like the bit about cracking down on “calls for separatism” as he’s fomenting separatism in other countries. That’s a nice touch.

Speaking of evil empires,

Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices… In his talk Zdziarski demonstrates “a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device” and “suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier.”

So what do you think, murderous, commie, Chinese dictators having their slaves put it in or just Apple being Apple?

They’ve both been watching Google pretty closely after all so that’s a tough call.

 

A rare disagreement between Veeshir and Israel.

Israeli envy says country deserves Nobel Prize for “restraint”

Really? You people want to be grouped with the Arafish, Kofi, What-Genocide?, Annan and Obama? I respect Israel far too much to want that to happen.

You’ve seen that commercial about the “Framily Plan” where Gordahn shows up uninvited? Well, in real life his name is J. Effin Kerry.

Michael Oren, who until recently served as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said Monday that US envoy John Kerry was coming to the region despite Sunday’s hot-mic incident making it clear that he had not been invited.

Okay, that’s funny and shows that, despite the faux pas on the Nobel, Israel still has its head on straight.

I wonder if that had something to do with the Obama admin canceling flights to Israel? He’s petty enough for that so…

 

This one is pretty darn funny too.

A conservative of color had the unmitigated gall to show up to a Democratic Front Group’s gathering (NAACP edition) and was rightly attacked in a vicious manner, but that’s just expected and not funny.

This quote from the article is what’s funny.

*Note: FreedomWorks is not funded by the Koch brothers.

Heh. disassociating themselves from an evil empire is kinda funny.

 

Geez, I just want to send the “children”, their parents and gang-banger friends back to their own countries, but Pelosi apparently wants us to crucify them.  She wants us to treat them like Jesus.

Hard core but probably a little overreactive.

 

I don’t get the problem with this.

Stoners in Colorado are using their EBT cards (not food stamps, just regular welfare) at pot dispensaries.

If it’s the Most Evil Thing In The World to drug test welfare recipients and pot is legal, why should anybody have any problem with this?

 

I haven’t seen this link any where for a long time so I’ll post it.

If you’re so inclined, these guys deliver pizzas to IDF soldiers on the frontline. Pizza for the IDF you can attach a message if you’re so inclined. .

So dat’s what sup.

That’s Not The Point

The Puppy Blender links to this New Republic article about Ivy League schools, PB quotes

. At least the classes at elite schools are academically rigorous, demanding on their own terms, no? Not necessarily. In the sciences, usually; in other disciplines, not so much.”

 

See, the point isn’t to make them knowledgeable or even competent in any arts or sciences, it’s to inculcate them with the Proper Elite Opinions and to make friends with other elites so they can join the Old Boy (and Old Wymyn) Club.

Why else did they hate Sarah Palin? She did not have the proper credentials or accent.

Why else do they all accept that The Science Is Settled?

Anybody with any clue at all knows no science is ever settled and to say otherwise is to show yourself to be too ignorant to be usefully involved with any discussion on science.

As FrnakJ said, it’s merely the best guess, by fallible humans, based on the current knowledge.

I”m Pissed Off Update

Why weren’t Obama and Kerry pushing so hard for a ceasefire when Hamas was shooting rockets at Israel every fucking day?

I mean, I know why, but why doesn’t anybody in our America/Israel hating media….Oh yeah, they hate free and open societies, they’re on the side of vicious, murderous dictators.
