Me or your lying pols and press?

We’ve all seen Abortion Barbie explaining how she didn’t really mean the filibuster that made her famous.

The thing is, she said that because she knew her supporters would know it’s a lie and hoped them people against A Wymyn’s Choice (the only choice lefties want you to have) would believe her. That’s what lefties do in every election, watch a Virginia election for the most blatant examples of that I’ve seen.

The GOP, fresh off cutting the cost of living increases to veterans, are saying they didn’t mean that!

he House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to restore full cost of living increases to pension benefits for younger military retirees, responding eagerly to election-year pressure from veterans groups.

Which the Senate will not take up.

In other words, just like repealing Obamacare, they’re not serious. It’s all just theater to shut us up and try to get us to give them money because they’re FIGHTING THE DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!

I do like this one. We’ve all seen the IRS forcing businesses to say they aren’t firing people because of Obamacare, Samizdata figures out the reason. Spoiler alert, it has nothing to do with keeping businesses from firing people because of Obamacare, it has everything to do with making people lie.

“Company officials will be trapped in a catch-22. They can lay off as many people as they want because of Obamacare. But because they’ll have to swear to the IRS that their decisions had nothing to do with Obamacare, they can’t speak publicly about what’s happening. What a great way to silence the people who are on the front lines of dealing with Obamacare’s horrific effects.”

So perfectly Obamawellian.

Obama and the UN are serious about helping Syria!

The UN presence in Homs has not prevented the regime and its fighters from opening fire at the people crossing over from the besieged area onto the Waar road. One elderly man, for instance, was hit in the abdomen and taken to the hospital. The regime also targeted a humanitarian aid convoy, killing two of its passengers.

Poor bastards. In the first year or so it was Teh Peepul trying to fight the chinless ophthalmologist and Obama could have helped them, now it’s just jihadi V jihadi and they’re all boned.

Speaking of poor bastards, EuroMaiden is what they’re calling the protests/budding revolution in Ukraine that have been going on for a few months.

Hospitals have become another EuroMaidan frontline from where injured activists have been kidnapped, one of whom ended up dead on Jan. 23. To mitigate the danger of abduction, the Center for Society Research, a local think tank, has mobilized a group of volunteers to provide security at area hospitals.

Sonomabatch. And Obama stays silent. Because he always sides against the democracy folks.

Update: I took out my rant at Thompsons Cigars.

I’ll just say, never use them. They stink and their idea of customer service is laughable and rude.

JR Cigars ships that day and you get it 2-3 days later, as they promise. Or at least, it worked that way when I lived in VA.

 

Important Update!!!!

Who you gonna believe, Ted Cruz or Politifact?

The shooter at Arapahoe High School (not going to name him, he doesn’t deserve the recognition) came armed for massacre, including extra ammunition, a machete, and Molotov cocktails. It’s fairly obvious from the amount of weaponry carried that the shooter had no intentions of simply killing his debate coach. Few news outlets are reporting on why the attack was cut short, though. It wasn’t because the targeted debate coach had left the school, and it wasn’t because the shooter suddenly had an attack of conscience.

The reason the shooter suddenly stopped his attack and killed himself was because Arapahoe High School had an armed school resource officer who confronted him. The shooter felt he was cornered and killed himself.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson had this to say:

We believe that the response from the  school resource officer … was absolutely critical to the fact that we did not have additional injury and/or death in this particular matter.

I think we have our proof of concept for armed school officers saving lives.

I am not the worst parent on the planet, not by far.

There are more people getting assistance from the gov’t than there are year-round, full time workers.

Or this scary ass baby costume?

 

Answer? The baby costume. The first thing is too funny considering it’s been a conspiracy theory most of my life before it became reality.

Vid via that confused, maybe a lumberjack guy.

But they never gave Meghan McCain a talk show.

Hey Ember, thanks for a needed post, good work.

Just make sure you tell all your friends to wipe their feet.

 

Finally! A brutal dictator I can get behind!

I forgive women for their lesbianism,” he said. “But I will never in my lifetime forgive men for being gay.

 

I mean, if it weren’t for the murdering and the oppressing and the stealing and the viciousness.

 

More murderous hilarity via the Jawas, I recall people saying one of the problems before 9/11 was the easy way Saudi Nationals could just enter our country with an easy visy plan.

A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give “trusted traveler” status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers,

 

But I thought profiling was bad?!!?!?!

 

Via iOwn the World, we see this bit of classlessness from our classless in chief.

Notice right at the end he gives Chuck Todd the finger. Now, don’t get me wrong, the guy deserves it. But have some class you asshole.

I saw part of that press conference, I bet a dollar Netanyahu said some thing Obama didn’t want him to say, like saying we are both going to go after Iran. Stuff Obama can’t now say, “I never said that.”

I say that cuz Obama’s not that bright and the last time they got together Netanyahu made him look stupid.

 

Eh, I’m not all that in the mood to pay attention to overseas, it’s just too depressing.

So let’s go to the US where’s it’s freaking hilariously depressing.

It’s a good thing what happened in Cyprus could never happen here!

California’s top-end taxpayers — already steamed over a recent hike in the nation’s highest state income tax — are now fuming over a new $120 million retroactive tax grab on small business owners.

That’s funny. “We need more money so we’re changing the tax code retroactive to 2008. The funniest part? They’re charging them interest on the money they’re stealing.

 

In Dems Behaving Normally news, via iOwn the World (again) we see a story that has all the intertubes memes we expect.

First, it’s a story of a Dem politician being better than we are.

An elected official for the City of Everett is accused of berating a child with special needs while dining at the Texas Roadhouse located in Everett on March 6.

 

Don’t you know who I am!

The spokesman claims Matewsky left without paying his bill and even threatened to have the health department shut the restaurant down.

But wait! There’s still more!

Matewsky denies that the incident ever happened and that the allegations are politically motivated…..

Matewsky has since reportedly apologized to the restaurant’s staff.

 

I didn’t do it! he says after he apologizes. Of course that’s not the end, they don’t write his name as, “Matewsky (D)” at all (as would have been in the headline if he had that (R)) and only have this in the 9th of 10 paragraphs

Matewsky, a 30-year veteran of Everett politics, topped four other Democrats

 

Eh, at least they did kinda mention it even if it was after most people had stopped reading.

 

I have to admit that I’m impressed. The headline threw me off, I had written this part before reading it because I expected them to act as if Obama xecutively ordering shit is a new thing, but they didn’t. This is actually a piece of journalism.

Now, as he launches his second term, Obama has grown more comfortable wielding power to try to move his own agenda forward, particularly when a deeply fractured, often-hostile Congress gets in his way.

 

Then they list a bunch of stuff that I knew and some I had tried to repress.

That’s what I get for clicking links.

 

Actions have consequences, Colorado passed their, “Magpul’s products are illegal here” law so Magpul is leaving

Good for them.

Man, wordpress loads slower than shit with a crappy connection. I tried doing this post 5 hours ago but I got tired of watching WordPress “new post” load and load and load….. and yes, I tried that shitty, Chrome browser too. It was just as shitty.

So here’s the delayed tubes! So you’ve probably seen it before, oh well. Pretend it’s earlier.

Some headline fun.

Weiner blames everything but his weiner!
Weiner is still fuming over his downfall, and he blames Nancy Pelosi,” said a source

That Cyprus deal just got more interesting. Apparently, Cyprus is where Russian mobsters keep their money.

Russian citizens account for the majority of the billions of euros deposited and Russian banks are also heavily exposed to the island as a offshore centre for big business

That’s not going to make Tsar Putin I happy. Those people pay him good money for protection and if there’s one thing a Bond villain takes seriously, it’s his evil responsibilities.

The only problem I have with linking ninme is that I have no idea what the hell a ninme is but I do know a ninme does find good links.

Some very cool, some just freaking depressing.

This one makes me laugh, apparently Sid Blumenthal had his account hacked and some emails to Hillary! (she’s getting her ! back!) were taken and being distributed.
First, we all know a lot of “journalists” will try to ignore the emails because I’m sure they make Hillary! look bad. But what makes me laugh is this bit

Blumenthal told TSG that when he attempted to access his e-mail yesterday morning, he could not successfully log in. He then contacted an AOL representative

Seriously? AOL.sucks? That’s fucking hilarious. These are our best and brightest.

Rand Paul says we should read bills before we vote on them and hey, let’s work on that liberty thing.
Kristolnacht: Rand Paul too old for the GOP.

Philly mag article tries to start a dialogue on race.

But this is how I see it: We need to bridge the conversational divide so that there are no longer two private dialogues in Philadelphia—white people talking to other whites, and black people to blacks—but a city in which it is okay to speak openly about race. That feels like a lot to ask, a leap of faith for everyone. It also seems like the only place to go, the necessary next step.

Look before you leap, or in this case, shut up before you leap.

Meanwhile, when I drive through North Philly to visit my son, I continue to feel both profoundly sad and a blind desire to escape.

Though I wonder: Am I allowed to say even that?


No, you’re not
.

Mayor Nutter calls the article’s tone “disgusting,” and he’s asked the Human Relations Commission to investigate some of the sensitive racial issues explored in the piece.

Yeah, that “dialogue” race hustlers keep talking about? It’s all about how the white man is evil and we need to give the Revs Al and Jesse and all the other race hustlers money to make it better.

Remember when the LAPD were running around shooting anything that looked like a truck when they were chasing the crazed cop-killing cop?

Well apparently it’s your fault for driving a truck that looked nothing like the truck they were chasing.

The two newspaper delivery women who were shot at during the manhunt for Christopher Dorner will not be getting a new replacement truck as promised by the LAPD

Assholes.

Good Cop.

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke told The Greeley Tribune that Democratic lawmakers are scrambling after recent mass shootings, and the bills are “feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable.”

The sheriff said he “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it would be impossible for officers to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners — and he and other sheriffs are considering suing the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.

Bad Cop.

More than 300 people were issued citations for public drinking.

And we find that 244 were cited in 2012, and 148 in 2011… Why, it’s almost like they discovered that there was gold in handing out citations for drinking! And, surprise of surprises… When the police go out and actively seek out people to ticket for public drinking, they find more crimes being committed…

Many (most? All?) places treat police as revenue generators instead of peace officers.

Via From The Barrel Of A Gun we see state ranks on gun freedom. The only thing that bothers me is that it’s a 51 page slideshow. I never click that stupid shit so if someone else does, let me know where AZ falls, I bet it’s in the top 5.

We’ll end on some NYC hilarity.

Good News! They’re building affordable housing in NYC!

Well, there is one catch.

so long as developers of housing along the toxic Gowanus can keep out the bright-green canal water.

Heh.

To bad Bloomberg didn’t have anything to do with Brooklyn or he might have something to do besides take pitchers of soda from tables of children.
