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.

(more…)

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.

30 SECONDS LATER UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I forgot this, I’ve been meaning to post it for a long time.

From our favorite Weasel, S, the greatest, non-Upton, gif in the history of gifs!!!!!

bees

 

Geez, I could almost literally just repost something from 2 years ago and nobody would notice it.

Not even if this was the type of blog that people read and click the links.

Let’s start with the peacefully murderous members of the Religion of Peace where it appears that something we haven’t seen in a long time is happening, region-wide war.

First, a drudgetaposition that is very illustrative of the whole, Peace Process farce.

Israel arrests the murderers of a Palestinian teen.

Meet The Proud Mother Of Palestinian Man Accused In Death Of Israeli Teens

 

Slight difference, you have to love.…hate how the Wash Post characterizes the Israelis utterly expected actions in relation to murderers.

The arrests shocked those on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide — Palestinians because many had assumed Israel would never act against its own

 

Assholes. The only people that “shocked” are assholes who hate Israel have a caricature of them that no amount of reality can change.

 

As Obama and the rest of the compassionate set lambast Israel for breaking the ceasefire, we have

Hamas militants in Gaza fired “dozens” of rockets into southern Israel late Monday,

Yeah, that’s what they do. They’re murderous thugocrats who use a religion to justify their thuggery.

 

Speaking of people ‘shocked’ by reality, something we here at DPUD have known about for over  year.

Despite denials by Hamas, there is growing evidence that the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS] — also known as “The Islamic State” — has begun operating in the Gaza Strip.

Yeah, that’s been happening for a long time.

So how is America viewed in this most dangerous of times?

Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry said Monday that US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, Tom Malinowski, is “unwelcome” in the Sunni-ruled kingdom and should “leave immediately.”

We’ve become the Rodney Dangerfield of the world, we get no respect. (Obama’s made sure we deserve none)

In relation to the murderous Religion Of Peacers kidnapping girls in Nigeria, we do have Top Men and Women on the Job!!!!!

twit

 

Okay, I’m officially embarrassed by my nation’s gov’t.

 

In other regional war news, Ukraine!

Another drudgetaposition.

Ukraine

The Ukrainian army is preparing to dislodge Kremlin-backed separatists from Donetsk and Luhansk,

Russia.

Russia may begin a “peacekeeping” operation in Ukraine within the next two days, according to comments made on July 3

 

Yeah, I’m sure that’ll end well. If something happens there, in the middle east or the South China Sea, Obama will take a weak to make a ‘decision” and his ‘decision’ will be to tell everybody, killers and killees, to step back.

 

That’s enough They’re All Gonna Die, let’s do some WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!! stuff that, surprisingly, isn’t global worming caused.

This happened in America, at the Murrieta deal. where we had some mostly-peaceful counter-protestors

peaceful

That’s in America. Seriously.

And we know the gov’t has our backs.

Davis says he reported the destruction or losing of applications (by the VA V) to White House deputy chief of staff, Rob Nabors, and gave him a copy of his whistleblower complaint. He says the complaint was then leaked to the very same people about whom he was complaining.

 

You know, for a place to store their knives.

Speaking of storing knives in our backs, I give you the establishment pricks in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party in Mississippi.

This site doesn’t have permalinks to each story, but this is the top story today. With pics and links to the FEC stuff.

Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The payments are described as “Reimbursed Expenses – Campaign Walkers.”

 

$40K buys a lot of votes to beat that stupid idjits from their own, putative, party.

But wait, there’s still more!

A conservative media consultant is accusing the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) of laundering money through a political consulting firm to a shadowy SuperPAC that ran racist negative ads attacking the Tea Party and Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi runoff election.

Lest you have forgotten, this flyer.

gop win!

Yeah, it’s unproven so far, but we know that’s only because the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party has been watching the Chicag0-Machine assholes running our country and learning how to hide their perfidy.

 

Eh, that’s enough for now, except for this illustration on how we can’t have nice things because of the coalition of humorless leftists and the people who care what they screech.

“Air NZ finds it appropriate to reinvent the in-flight safety video with a celebration of Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary. A safety video is to alert passengers on what to do in an emergency; it should not be an excuse to objectify the sexualized female body,”

The ad in question.

 

Assholes, don’t they want us to be safe?

 

 

 

What the Shit?

There’s a lot that’s predictable in a “What the Shit?” way and there’s a lot that’s that weird in the “What the Shit?” sort of way.

We’ve seen this State Dept “Advisor”  dude before telling the Copts to stop bleeding all over Egypt, here he is happy he doesn’t have to defend the Muslim Brotherhood anymore. Cuz now everybody realizes they’re great and shit.

What the Shit?

As Israel is bombing the shit out of Hamas,  you all what what Obama is going to say even as you say, “What the shit?” when he tells both sides to step back. You know, back to when Israel just let Hamas shoot rockets into Israel almost every single day some years but pretty constantly no matter what.

Israel is looking at the same thing our enemies are looking at and realizing they’re on their own and Obama is a weak, feckless tool who just wishes the world would leave him alone to eat his waffles.

 

Ukraine is done with being nice.

New battles raged in Ukraine’s east on July 1 as President Petro Poroshenko announced the end of a shaky 11-day ceasefire and said a new “active phase” of the government’s “anti-terrorist operation” would restart to quash pro-Russian separatists.

What the shit? Don’t you know you’re on your own? The President Feckless and the even more feckless EUnuchs aren’t going to help you. Unless the Germans are feeling like killing someone.

What the shit? I’m rooting for warlike Germans?!?!?!?!??

I don’t feel like looking to see what China’s doing today in the South China Sea, just assume they’re acting like murderous, commie dictators. Expansionist, murderous, commie dictators.

In more oligarchs trying to strengthen their hold news, let’s go the America!

Haley Barbour’s peeps were behind a bunch of the stuff calling tea partiers racist in Mississippi.

No word on those fliers, but it’s bound to come out. I wonder, when it’s discovered that a Republican did them, will whoever tells Cochran what to say tell him to step down?

Sorry, I should have put a drink warning in there or at least a “What the shit?” warning.

We’re just finding out there was some good old fashioned politicking going on there too.

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud …

says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls … “They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.”

 

What the shit? The GOP is paying Democrats to vote for their guy? All they do is call me names and ask me for money.

The GOP establishment pricks there are also making it so McDaniel’s peeps cannot look at the votes to see who voted in both primaries so they’re having to sue to get access.

The lawsuit asks the court to grant immediate access to voting records to inspect for possible illegal voting. It asserts that “defendants failed to properly abide by federal election record maintenance and open records provisions codified in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA). Records made partially available to the plaintiffs indicated ‘double-voting’ from Democratic to Republican primaries – potentially diluting votes in violation of the Equal Protection Clause.”

 

What the shit? Is everybody going all Chicago-Machine politics on us or was always this prevalent but I just didn’t notice?  How come nobody told me? I mean, I knew it was in the big, Dem-Machine cities where I’ve lived, but I didn’t think it was everywhere.

Speaking of Chicago-Machine politics and people getting upset, this is a serious What the Shit? deal,

A bunch of people blocked buses of illegals on their way to being “processed” and released.

More than 100 people waving American flags and holding signs that opposed “new illegals” waited in the hot sun for the three charter buses to arrive at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in Murrieta, about an hour north of San Diego.

 

Stuff is really pissing people off.Telling America they suck as you break all the laws is pissing off Teh Peepul as they haven’t been pissed off before. in a long time. (that’s what I mean to say)

 

So CERN found the GOD-PARTICLE!!!!!!! (Higgs Boson) and now they’re all upset because nobody cares enough to give them money.

Because after finding it in July 2012 — and confirming it six months later, after almost 50 years of searching — what else is left? The anti-climax was inevitable.

Sure enough, the world is far less interested in this project, and much less money is being invested in it.

 

What the shit? You called it the God Particle and told us it was going to CHANGE EVERYTHING!!!!!!! and it’s changed….. dialogue on the Big Bang Theory.

You oversold and now you’re paying the price. Eh, should have gone into global warmmongering.

 

A few years ago I was sorta following a story in the NY Post about a CANNIBAL!!!!!, he was convicted and I noted,

Okay, now I feel kind of stupid, apparently the “Cannibal” of the NY Post didn’t actually eat anybody, he just read websites about it and talked about it. I’m not defending any of that, but he didn’t actually do anything but talk shit on the intertubes.

And now we see

. Well, a judge has decided he was just kidding. So he overturned his conviction.

What the shit? You really convicted a dude for playing stuff on the intertubes? That article is kind of OUTraged that the guy was let off, but he didn’t do anything. Jebus.

 

A couple chucklers,

News From The 1980s!

Transformers 4, A Chinese Menu Of Product Placement

 

I don’t know, that just made me laugh. I mean, What the shit?  Are you upset it’s no longer Japanese stuff or are you surprised/OUTRAGED!!!! that Transformers went all commercial?

 

In Italy they’re going all CSI on Ernest and Julio.

It’s a genetic test, but no body parts or blood are being analyzed — it’s bottles of wine instead.

That’s not really a What the shit?, they have their priorities straight.

 

I didn’t realize I had that many links open. What the shit? that was a long post.

 

 

I started out preferring that people use the term ISIS rather than ISIL. I mean, it rolls off the tongue a lot easier, and it looks like they could be a James Bond villain, or maybe GI-Joe or something.  But I’ve changed my mind.

The final “S” in ISIS hides the extent of ISIL’s ambition.  The “L” stands for the “Levant”, which Wikipedia tells me consists of “Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey (the former Aleppo Vilayet).”

That’s a lot different from just “Iraq and Syria”. If it were just that, we could maybe let them fight it out with the Iraqi and Syrian governments and let the chips fall where they may… and perhaps drop a few bombs afterwards.

The Levant is a much bigger deal, and doesn’t as easily lead to the conclusion that we can ignore them for a while and see what happens.

I’ve been tubing a bunch lately so let’s do a round the tubes post. It’s full of good and bad BOOMS!

Important, Above The Fold Update!!!!!!

The IRS is listed as a customer of Sonasoft software – “Email Archiving Done Right”…

And Sonasoft evened bragged about being the backup servers for the IRS in a 2009 tweet.

 

 

You know what this means? Check my previous comment, now I want the IRS disbanded and everybody above GS-11 in jail.

Update to the Update!!!!!!

obamaunion IRS

Now back to Veeshir making a Boom Boom.

 

This one, via the Mike at Cole Fury,  is pretty darn interesting.

It’s mostly about Iraq,

It all happened pretty quickly last week, but in case you haven’t noticed, Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall over there. The bonehead American news media affects to be too stunned to even ask the pertinent questions, starting with: is that all it took to undo eight years and — what? — maybe two trillion dollars in US-sponsored nation-building? Oh, plus 4,000 US dead and 50,000 wounded. So, my question would be: when do the political recriminations kick in? Pretty soon, I reckon, and when they do, expect them to be fiercely perverse. The theme of who lost Iraq? may cost more than who lost Vietnam?

 

For me, it’s pretty obvious, we let our enemies know we weren’t in it for the long haul, both Dem and GOP.  Obama, as POTUS,  is supposed to provide leadership but he ran away and now all our hard work in Iraq is undone as we’ve reinforced that we cannot be trusted to last.

The article does have this bit of optimism.

not much attention is being paid to Saudi Arabia, but note that it has been the chief sponsor of Sunni insurgency everywhere but Saudi Arabia itself, and that the genie they let out of that flask will probably come back and tear that country to shreds, especially in so far as King Abdullah at age 90 is a virtual mummy, and that many other clans besides the Saud tribe have designs on the throne

 

We forget that for much of forever changing rulers has meant civil war or at least a murdered king, “The King is Dead! Long Live the King!!!” That means we might have to change our maps to reflect that Arabia is no longer Saudi.

More good news from the middle east.

An Egyptian court on Saturday confirmed death sentences for 183 Islamists, including Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie

 

Good for them.  The International Community is, of course, in an outrage. They are on not on the side of civilization and law and order so fuck em.

I love this one,

Iran has deployed “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to bolster the Shiite-led government there but there was no sign of a major deployment of army units, the Pentagon said Friday.

 

Heh.Just like us!

 

In Phoney War News, Ukraine declared a cease-fire against Putin’s “rebels”.

Putin isn’t interested.

Russia dismissed Ukraine’s declaration of a week-long cease-fire as an “ultimatum”

 

Putin, of course, is not interested in it being settled in any way except to make Ukraine back into a satellite state.

Care to dispute that statement?

A key figure in covert Russian efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine is working for Russia’s GRU military intelligence service, according to U.S. officials.

 

Yeah, I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

This is pretty funny.

The Vladivostok warship, a Mistral class LHD amphibious vessel ordered by Russia to the STX France shipyard

 

The Russian armament industry is old, crappy and built by commies. That does not make for good systems.

That’s funny enough, but having France helping Putin as they’re frowning at him over the problems in the Ukraine is pretty funny.

Speaking of provocative, murderous dictators trying to get more territory, China!

Chinese military aircraft once again flew unusually close to two Japanese Self-Defense Forces planes over the East China Sea, less than three weeks after a similar dangerous incident over the same area.

 

Why the hell not, Obama will take a week to “make a decision” and all he’ll do is tell both sides to step back.

Cuz he’s an idiot.

Let’s go to America, it’s where I keep my stuff and it’s going BOOM! in a big way, that depresses me.

First, here’s Obama and the Dems trying to turn around the looming real estate recovery.

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit,

 

You know, the very thing that screwed up the real estate market a few years ago.

As FrnakJ said long ago, I don’t know if Obama’s trying to destroy America, but his actions make more sense if you assume he is.

It’s sorta funny that no matter what Bush did the Dems and their Minitrue minions “Questioned the Timing”, that of course stopped as soon as their God-President ascended the throne.

Lois Lerner’s computer mysteriously crashed, was thrown out and recycled 10 DAYS after House Ways & Means Chairman Dave Camp asked if the IRS was engaged in targeting on June 3, 2011.

 

Just a computer “Glitch” that is absolutely not at all believable or even plausible at a very convenient time. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

Another story about a Dem acting they way Dems act, this one has a twist though that’s hilarious.

So some Dems are helping the establishment asshole, Cochran, beat the tea party terrorists trying to destroy our nation and

When a top Mississippi Democrat accused Lane “L.C.” Murray in a Facebook post of using shady tactics to help Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), Murray purportedly left a threatening voicemail to a Republican state senator who posted about the matter on Twitter.

 

But this bit is what cracks me up.

Murray says he didn’t threaten Smith—just promised he would beat him up if he didn’t

 

That doesn’t make any sense at all, but if Minitrue doesn’t cover it, did it happen? Not according to our social, moral, political and intellectual betters. You know, our smug, ignorant, conceited, self-proclaimed “Elites”.

I was going to do some border stuff, but accept that Obama is fucking us all and Texas and AZ are trying to save us against the power of the federal gov’t and it’s just too infuriating to really want to dwell on.

Let’s end on a bit of good news.

he suspect “began to walk away, turned and said, ‘betcha ain’t got one of these,’ pointing a gun at the [would-be] victim.

 

Wait for it….Wait for it……

“However, the would-be victim was carrying a gun for self-defense and he responded to the threat by shooting the suspect in the chest.

 

Heh.

I don’t suggest  Mr. Bad Guy go to Vegas anytime soon, he’s not very good at betting.

 

Oh, I almost forgot, I wanted to post the story about the World Cup that really interested me.

The last time anything interesting happened in the world of soccer, they made a movie about cannibalism.

 

 

 

 

 

As I’ve already stated, nobody’s hindsight is 20/20 except mine and intelligent people’s*.

I’m not trying to pick on Glenn Beck, I’m just using him because that’s the link I had open.

It could have been a bunch of other people who you are probably reading too. Or rather, instead of reading here.

I’ve been seeing people say we should never have gone into Iraq.

 

No.

Longer version below the fold.

(more…)

Important Upton!!!!!! Below the Fold!!!!! Via the Jawas!!!!!!!

Ace links the Wash Post so I don’t have to.

The semiautonomous Kurdish government said its pesh merga forces took control of the Kurdish city of Kirkuk in northern Iraq, after Iraqi security forces there fled rather than fight.

 

Okay, now I know he’s not trying to do this, but Obama’s foreign policy is working wonders in the Dar al Islam and keeping jihadis away from the Dar al Harb.

He’s made it so the Dar al Islam is basically a dog’s breakfast of jihadis killing each other. That’s all about teh funny.

Now we have the Kurds saying, “Screw it.” and creating Kurdistan.

Good for them. The next POTUS, assuming a bare minimum of competence and the desire and ability to rein in the State Dept (I know), will have a decent ally in the middle east.

 

Bush’ strategery was to fight jihadis in the Dar al Islam, it might have worked if we didn’t have feckless leaders.

Obama’s unintentional strategery is very Roman, keeping the barbarians fighting each other and leaving us alone.

It sucks that we lost so many good men using the previous strategy.

For now, it’s working out pretty well.

In the future, of course, the world is going to go explode.

The only ray of sunshine is that, as with economics, while we might be screwed, the rest of the world is exponentially more screwed.

So long as we can keep the Navy working we should be okay until we get our shit together.

Speaking of which, fuck Canada. They are the luckiest country in the dam world, they get protected by us and all they have to do is act smug and superior.

At least they’ll be screwed by the coming ice age, so we have that hilarity to look forward to.

(more…)

Yes J Effin Kerry, it does.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.

Don’t you have some Jews and global worming deniers to hassle?

Jeez, we already know we can’t do shit.

Anything we do will be undone because the EUnuchs need Russian energy.

 

Which leads to something I’ve been wondering about, would a world war  be good for America?

No, hear me out.

Sure there might be some nuclearly blasted regions, but they’d most likely be overseas and those people are the ones causing it anyway. SoKo and EUnuchstan are just begging to be invaded.

We’d be too broke for welfare and conscription would mean that many on welfare would have to join the military. We’d need to restart Pittsburgh and maybe even Detroit.

I know that taking our shit half-way around the world and blowing it up isn’t all that good an idea economically, but is it any worse than what we’re doing now? I don’t see how it could be any worse.

I say this time we make whoever takes France keep it as part of the peace deal.

Just a thought, not a sermon.

The Daley Show

Posted: March 8, 2014 by veeshir in Exploding things, Obama's Fault

So we’ve seen the ballots for the Crimean vote and they’re sorta like an election in Chicago.

The ballot asks two questions and leaves no option for a “no” vote. Voters are simply asked to check one of two boxes:

Do you support joining Crimea with the Russian Federation as a subject of Russian Federation?

And:

Do you support restoration of 1992 Crimean Constitution and Crimea’s status as a part of Ukraine?

 

So what’s the problem?

That Constitution declares that Crimea is an independent state.

There’s no option for “Just leave us alone”.

You have to choose to be part of Russia now or become “independent” with tens of thousands of Russian soldiers in your “independent state”.

That would be much funnier if it wasn’t so serious.

Quoth Obama

I know President Putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but I don’t think that’s fooling anybody.”

Lawyers? He’s skipping lawyers and money and just sending guns.

Obama’s an incompetent fool as is obvious to anybody not of our self-proclaimed elite.
