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.

Roll Call: “U.S. Chamber Backs Justin Amash Primary Opponent

I now have exactly zero patience for the establishment types who complain about folks putting up primary opposition against incumbents.

Screw the Chamber.

Some people just don’t learn a thing.

Obama going to spend a half billion dollars to arm jihadis fighting in Syria.

What a nitwit, he could spend half the money for twice the fighters if he’d go to Iraq, they already have US materiel so he could save hundreds of millions of dollars. Fool.

 

One lesson Obama learned long ago is that he always sides with the dictatorial types and he refuses to learn that he might do better to work with people against tyranny.

Obama dismissed as “a fantasy” the proposition that “farmers, dentists and folks who have never fought before,” as he described Syria’s rebels, “were in a position to suddenly overturn not only Assad but also ruthless, highly-trained jihadists if we just sent a few arms.”

 

Yeah, now. He could have helped the Syrian rebels before the Jihadis moved in, but they didn’t hate America so he had to wait until there were some America-haters before offering them a half billion dollars.

 

I’ll answer this question in hopes of CNN actually learning something.

ISIS: The first terror group to build an Islamic state?

No.

I understand people pretend that terrorism against Israel is not terrorism-terrorism, but it is.

 

Speaking of which, Obama’s Middle East Peace Processor quit, and he’s refused to learn a thing,  you know who’s to blame.

an unnamed US official – widely believed to be Indyk – was quoted by the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper as blaming Israel for the breakdown in talks and saying that Netanyahu “did not move more than an inch.”

 

Yeah, just because the terrorists keep firing rockets at Israel every, single day doesn’t mean that the cease fire is broken until Israel replies.

 

Not sure if this is a case of not learning a lesson or just grasping at straws but

…”EU-Ukraine Association Agreement…..

So, in the spirit of the political association, we also expect that the EU will make everything to support our sovereign choice and protect Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity...

 

Bwahahahahahahahahahahha….

Oh, you’re serious.

Yeah, let me know how that works out for you. I’d rather depend on Obama than that even more feckless bunch of reliers on Russian energy supplies.

 

Nancy Pelosi to go to the border to greet illegal immigrants.

Hmmm, maybe she’d actually learn something if she met different illegal immigrants.

 

Obama again,  you’d think after being a Constitutional Professor he’d have learned that the Senate is in charge of treaty-making.

Specifically, U.S. ambassador to Mozambique, Douglas Griffiths, read a statement saying that the United States would refrain from further production or purchase of antipersonnel land mines.

The statement also said the once existing stocks expire, the United States would not take any action to replace them, The Times said.

Further, the statement said that the United States was “diligently pursuing solutions that would be compliant with and ultimately allow the United States to accede to the Ottawa Convention,”

Yeah, I guess he was sick that day. Must have been the same day Reverend Wright called for death to whitey.

You would also think he would learn his preening and grandstanding makes America less safe, not more.

You would be wrong.

 

Speaking of Chicago-Machine-Politics, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party in Mississippi learned all the wrong lessons.

McDaniel Supporters Barred From Reviewing Voter Rolls in Nine Mississippi Counties

Bastards.

 

 

Fuck this shit:

(pic pilfered from NRO)

I know that somewhere, probably in DC, probably in the NRSC HQ, the motherfucker who did this is saying to himself, “yeah, but we won, and that’s what counts.”

To anybody who happens to know who did this, please expose said person so they never work again.

A little dose of reality.

Some are talking about a generational rejection of the liberal agenda. Call me unconvinced.

Latest RCP average of the generic congressional vote.

If the manifest failure of the namesake project of the liberal god-king Obama is not enough to get Republicans better than parity with Democrats, doesn’t that mean we’re still screwed?

Interrogative

Posted: November 11, 2013 by veeshir in Fun with Elections, GOP FAIL

So my question, according to the Wash Post, McCain claims that many people are begging him to run for president again.

Of course, most of those people are in the media, McCain plays his part of also-ran very well. Recall how he refused to make Obama’s record, friends or lies a part of his campaign.

But what has me scratching my head is which vid is more representative.

This vid of some Russian guy nailing his junk to the plaza outside the Kremlin

 

Or this vid of people saying “Son of a bitch.”

This tweet wins teh Internets:

Also, right now I just don’t want to think about a universe where Terry McAuliffe wins a state-wide election.

Virginia, I am sooooo disappointed in you.

As Drewm says over at Ace’s, Hillary is unlikable as a candidate. She’s too obviously a huckster as she far too obviously postures differently for different audiences.

Funny Update.

Shorter Hillary, “If only those racist, mysognist, terrorist, tea bagging, haters of the VWRC would be civil.”

Now back to our post!

She has no accomplishments of her own except hounding/sheparding Bill Clinton into becoming POTUS.

What did she accomplish at State? The Arab Spring that led to Benghazi. Yay!

So why is she even possibly viable as a candidate?

Her plumbing.

So we know the Dems would be all excited about voting for a woman, they’ve already checked off “Black Man”.

So who else with no accomplishments might be much more palatable adored worshipped than Hillary? Someone who would get the media creaming all over their desks/giant i-Pads, on-air?

Michele Obama.

8 more years of the same crew.

I’ve actually been too busy to birl the tubes, I was veeshired. I also changed the title, I always get that wrong.

Let’s start with some “Smirt Daplomacy” stuff.

Lebanese acting kinda scares as they laugh at Obama arming jihadis in Syria.

Great quote, you know they’re just shaking their heads and laughing/cringing.

The United States backed “the coalition’s vision for a tolerant, inclusive Syria that respects the rights of all Syrians.

After noting that the guy people trusted said, “I’m outta here”.

In Egypt, some more of that brillyents,

Islamic hard-liners stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo, turning it into torture chamber for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood

Now we see why Christians are now the most oppressed religion, Muslims have killed or ejected all the Jews, now they’re working on Christians.

So as Syria is a nightmare, Egypt is becoming a nightmare and the Palestinians continue their rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, the AP knows who’s to blame. Do you really need me to tell you?

This surprises me.

Recent photographs show workers in Saudi Arabia demolishing some of the oldest sections of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, London’s Independent reports.

Not even Press TV (official Iranian mouthpiece, like MSNBC but they show the other side sometimes) is covering it.

I’m not surprised the grievance mongers who bash the Israelis for planting olives on the 13th holiest site in Islam are quiet, but since it appears Syria is a heat-up of the war between Iran (Hezbollah, Assad) and Saudi Arabia (al Quaeda, various, other terrorists), I’d expect Iran to make some noises. Huh.

I did notice this when I clicked.

An Egyptian minister says direct flights in the form of charter flights will resume between Iran and Egypt within the coming weeks.

More jihadis for Egypt! Yay. Dudes probably kept blowing up when they had to make a connection. I know it usually pisses me off.

I didn’t have enough time for more overseas, I do have a bunch of hilarity in this one so just a couple, domestic, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! or at least GO TO THE GULAG!!!!

This one’s confusing. Huckabee warning the GOP about gay marriage.This one’s about Dem senators going gaga for gay marriage.

It seems awfully early in the election cycle to get people riled up on gay marriage, for both sides. I know the Supreme Court is taking it up, it’s going to be interesting.

From the I Used To Live There files, VA has a voter ID law.  Racist! I mean, just cuz you need an ID for everything else it’s racist to require it for voting!

Via the Puppy Blender, Moe Lane notices Obama’s tool responding to a tweet from a fictitious congress-critter.

Kinda puts that threatening tweet at the Norks in perspective.

Cruz birthers are going to be a hoot. I mean, the mental contortions of making fun of Obama birthers while being a Cruz birther will be infuriatingly funny, which is not as good as funny but better than infuriating.

Via Jay we see unions acting like their fine, Wisconsin brothers. So some cops are letting good behavior prisoners out to do work, ala the guy from Shawshank, but he just has them do stuff around the town like painting the police station and shoveling walks. So the unions are all, “Hey! That’s union work!”, I guess their wives don’t make apple pies stuffed with hundred dollar bills.

But, as jay notes, there’s one problem.

The head of Arlington’s Housing Authority says, because of budget cuts, his agency would not have been able to hire the job out anyway.

Mudderpocking sonsomabatching iceholes.

Via the Jawas, Help a Brother Out.  Dude’s selling his autographed picture of Jim Carrey to buy a gun. He’s up to $444 now, that’s pretty darn close to a Glock to scare good ole’ Jim. I’d love to see him get enough to buy the gun Mr Gabby Giffords was gonna buy. That would be funny.

Via Harvey we see this Ramirez comic.

Rush Limbaugh needs to get a fund going for buses to Mexico so the DHS can dump them and not pay for transportation back to Mexico. Airfare to the Europeans might be too expensive, but if we started a fund….

A little global warmmongering humor. Global worming is hitting Europe so hard,

Ornithologists have reported that migratory birds coming from the south have turned back.

I picture Daffy Duck saying, “Fuck that.”

The swallows will be back in Capistrano next year. And you know it’s going to be caused by Global Worming!

Russian scientists are predicting an ice age based on the Sun not doing what it’s supposed to be doing. I don’t know if I believe it, we just don’t have a long enough baseline for how the Sun is supposed to act, but…

That might be better than an asteroid. It would be a targeted disaster. Leftist nitwits hardest hit, people with brains enough to go south out of the cold would have a good chance (Hello from sunny Arizona!).

Then the Mexicans will suddenly think a wall is a great thing as Abrams and Bradleys go strolling across the Sonoran desert and the Rio Grande.

Last, and most freaky, via that guy who better hope he’s a lumberjack if he lives near the glaciers we get this bit of optic delusion.

I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.

A drudgetaposition, smart diplomacy edition

Turkey welcomes Israel apology for defending against terrorist flotilla!

Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.

Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.

Barbra Streisand to perform in Tel Aviv

Poor bastards.

Lebanon’s gov’t dissolves itself. I figure Hezbollah will move in. Oh well, they had their Cedar Revolution and they allowed Jew-hatred to fuck it up.

Via the Jawas, A look at Hezbollah’s politicking.

(Note: I have no idea where that is and I condemn myself for laughing every time I watch it)

Global worming attacks Ukraine!

Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.

I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.

A week or two ago I had a story about how Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.

Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.

Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?

Via Samizdata, more Airstrip One news, some friend of O’Brien’s had this to say about their new restrictions on free speech, journalism and blogging.

Headline of the op-ed.

Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy

In the body

believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.

Freedom Is Slavery!

I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.

I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though

Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.

Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.

Fuck you.

Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.

The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty.  One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?

Alexander (R-TN)          Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)                   Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA)         Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS)            Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)                Cornyn (R-TX)

Hatch (R-UT)                  Hoeven (R-ND)
Isakson (R-GA)             Johanns (R-NE)
McConnell (R-KY)       Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL)            Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)              Wicker (R-MS)

Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.

Speaking of which…..

From the Barrel of a Gun (blog) we see this.

0147

It would be funny if it weren’t true.

Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.

NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.

Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.

This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.

This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)

Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.

Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I  mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!

President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.

First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.

I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?

I cannot put anything, no matter how despicably murderous, past Mr Fast and Furious Benghazi.

Now, the hotassery, I believe this is the first actual sex show on DPUD!

Work that bitch!

Or is that Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Animal Sanctuary?
