ISIS, sensing weakness, is still working on shutting America up.

The personal address of an anti-Muslim activist was tweeted Friday from a Twitter account bearing the name of a man believed to be a British Islamic State jihadist kingpin. The tweet about Pamela Geller, who heads a group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative, came just hours after a third man connected to a plot to kill her and murder Boston police was arrested.

“#GoForth,” the Tweet urged via a hashtag after revealing Geller’s New York City address, apartment number and all.

We need to kill a lot of those bastards to let them know they can’t fuck with America. Too bad America is run by assholes who hate America only slightly less than the jihadi assholes.

This is a good response

 A New Hampshire man wants to defy an Islamic prohibition on depicting the prophet Muhammad in pictures and plans to host a “Draw Muhammad” art contest in August.

 

One quibble with the “journlist” who wrote that passage, it should be “Islamist prohibition (fatwa)” not “Islamic”, as the Taliban is one who decided that it was against their form of murderous Fasco-Islamism.

 

Speaking of assholes who hate America, and what it stands for, the California Democratic Party!

All hopes were dashed when one of DeMaio’s former staffers named Todd Bosnich accused him of sexual harassment in the final weeks of the campaign. He even produced threatening emails which he claimed were sent to him by someone in the DeMaio camp.

Democrats welcomed the scandal and although DeMaio strongly denied the charges, he was defeated by Democrat Scott Peters.

Now the LA Times is reporting that the staffer Todd Bosnich made the whole thing up and has even admitted his lies to the FBI, which was part of the investigation.

You know what will happen to this guy who lied to sway an election and who lied to the FBI?

Not a fucking thing. It wasn’t Martha Stewart, it’s the Dems after all, they do not have to obey laws, customs or even decency.

 

This is just funny.  Weasel Zippers notices this tweet.

 

Now, she might have stood up near Putin, but she certainly did not stand up to Putin, and as for being in the Situation Room when bin Laden was killed, well, I was situated in a room when he was killed too. Does that mean I’m ready to be POTUS? Eh, maybe I should marry some guy who cheats on me to make me really ready. Too bad AZ doesn’t do gay marriage yet.

 

This seems promising,

The Iowa Supreme Court has affirmed the right to be drunk on your front porch.

But I do not like this part

The Supreme Court agreed, declaring the front steps of a private residence not a public place if the homeowner hasn’t invited the general public to be there.

Yeah, see, if I want to have a party where I get drunk, it’s still my fucking property and it isn’t “public” drunkenness even if I invite people to my house to get drunk with me. They aren’t publicly drunk even if they’re on my property either. But then, my home is the State’s Castle these days.

 

Paco asks

Are country music songs starting to all sound the same to you?

 

Brain noticed it first.

tter? Have any of you ever heard of this twitter thing? I don’t know if it will last, but you to have love this

Okay, that’s funny.

Not so funny?

The principal of North Miami Senior High School,Alberto Iber, lost his job after posting on Facebook about McKinney. He watched the video and posted the following message:

“He did nothing wrong. He was afraid for his life. I commend him for his actions.”

Free speech? That’s like something we don’t need anymore, our social, moral, political and intellectual betters know what we should and should not be able to say.  Maybe they could start a dictionary (that link disappeared so here’s the wikipedia page for it) so we would know what was okay and what wasn’t.

That’s from the same guy.

If I ran twitter, I would have some way to keep track of what certain people say, I don’t like oh, say…..following him around and seeing what he says.

The only response to this question from George Stephanclintonopalie 

Stephanopoulos to O’Malley: Did Your Baltimore Leadership Sow Seeds of Police Distrust?

 

Is, “When did Hillary tell you to ask me that question?”

First, I call upon (every) one of you to deplore my overt sexism in the previous post.

I posted this

I should not have called Hillary! a ho, she’s an entitled, dishonest, cold, calculating bitch, but she’s not a ho.

 

I saw the Drudge story about Hillary busing in ordinary campaign workers…people for her to be average with.

Bird himself is a frequent participant in Iowa Democratic Party events. He interned with President Obama’s 2012 presidential re-election campaign, and was tapped to chauffeur Vice President Joe Biden in October 2014 when he visited Davenport.

 

I was wondering which one broke ranks, as I’d bet a lot that each and every “journalist” who breathlessly covered this knew but still wrote stories saying how great she is.

Polie-ico had this to say about our “Iowans”, they did mention they were pre-selected but….

The three Iowans who were photographed chatting with Clinton were picked by the campaign: Sara Sedlacek, a young mother who works for Planned Parenthood; St. Ambrose University student Austin Bird; and Carter Bell, the president of the University of Iowa College Democrats.

 

Hmmm,  they knew that much but failed to mention….ohhhh, that one was an Obama volunteer and another Joe Biden’s driver. Lies of omission are one of their specialties. Right along with lies of commission.

Wash Post loves them some ordinary Hillary

Clinton began her day with coffee at a locally owned shop in rural Le Claire.

Among those she met (met, not “bused in” V) was Sara Sedlacek, 33, of West Liberty, Iowa. Sedlacek is the mother of a 15-month-old child, works for Planned Parenthood and owns, with her husband, a coffee shop and wine bar.

 

This is a nice touch.

This trip has been small-scale by design. Clinton, the overwhelming favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination, is deliberately beginning her campaign on a listening tour to project humility and show that she intends to earn every vote.

The campaign mantra — go small and  stay humble

 

Heh. Hillary, stay humble.

‘Hillary’ and ‘humble’ only belong in the same sentence if it includes the phrase “humble her enemies”.

The NY Times.  Headline

For a Clinton, It’s Not Hard to Be Humble in an Effort to Regain Power

 

Hmmm, Humility’Humble must be the word of the day at Journolist.

They’re nothing but Minitrue. As predicted by many, , their “GOPers Love Them Some Hillary!” story.

Hillary Clinton has found a new constituency: Republicans.

 

The first in a series.

Bad stuff for Hillary we have to read about it in the Daily Mail.

As Weasel Zippers wrote, .

The media across the pond isn’t ready for Hillary.

 

Yup.

IMIO* I don’t see Hillary winning, unless the GOP manages to nominate Jeb Bush of course, but barring that, I just cannot believe that enough people will vote for her even with Minitrue spending months telling us she’s the bee’s knees.

Saying that, I do really like the idea of a Hillary! campaign, just for the Hillarity.

Now back to our post already in progress

Via Paco, we see Powerline with some Hillary! campaign posters, most are ‘eh’, but a couple are pretty good.

My fave

Of course, Stoaty has been on a roll with thesehillaryannounce

or my fave Stoaty one

hillaryposter

I do wish I was even competent with photoshop, because the pics of her from the 2008 campaign, when she was going against Minitrue’s God-President, are awesome and do not need much to be perfect.

This one isn’t from the campaign, but it goes with the others.

Trailer Park Grandma Hillary

Trailer Park Grandma Hillary

 

This one cracks me up, it was taken through some sort of lens they normally don’t use.

POTUS Of The Damned!

POTUS Of The Damned

 

This one is my very favoritest picture of her, even more than Trailer Park or Vampire Hillary.

She'll Eat Your Soul

Vote for Hillary Or She’ll Eat Your Soul!

This, of course, is the only palatable pic of Hillary.

Why is this post in “Liberal Fascism”? Because every post with Hillary belongs in Liberal Fascism.

* (In My Ignorant Opinion)

In attempting to write about the Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice incidents, the apparent futility of conservative blogging has once again caused me overwhelming despair.

As it concerns the death-by-cop incidents, the post-factual nature of our political discourse becomes palpable. “Hands up, don’t shoot!” is an utter fabrication, exposed as a lie by overwhelming physical evidence and the preponderance of eye-witness testimony, such that no charges were brought by a grand jury against the officer.

There’s much more room for concern in the Garner and Rice cases, but the public backlash in these three cases seems inversely proportionate to the evidence of police wrongdoing. (How many of you are going to Google “Tamir Rice” now?) But the incident drawing the most ire, the Michael Brown shooting, is the one with the least genuine merit – nil by my reckoning.

Presented with the futility of attempting to dislodge an erroneous belief from the public consciousness, one recalls the many other instances of valiant but Sisyphean work by conservative and libertarian bloggers. Whether it is the exposure of the IRS criminality, or the Gosnell little abortion shop of horrors, or the Jonathan Gruber recordings, nothing seems to stick or matter. Obama’s even back to funding ACORN as health insurance navigators.

I will from time to time find cause to write, but for now I expect the sparseness of my motivation to continue. In a world where facts don’t matter, there’s little reason to discuss facts.

So the GOP won the Senate. What are they going to do about Obamacare?

It will be a tale.

Run by idiots, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.

They’ll try to “fix” it.

Ace links to a few articles about how Obama is destroying the Democratic party. You know, just like Clinton did in the 90s.

A sample quote

For all the talk that this midterm election was about nothing, 2014 really was just about one thing: Barack Obama’s failure to live up to his presidency’s promise in almost every domestic and foreign policy arena.

 

See, once the Dems get power they don’t care all that much about keeping it, they care about advancing their agenda.

So what has Obama accomplished?

Obamacare, the relaxation of the rule of law and the shifting of the conversation from “The gov’t needs to stay out of my medical questions” to, “The gov’t is in charge of my medical questions and taking it away is like trying to kill all wymyn and childryn”.

As usual, Democratic policies have emboldened our enemies so if we have to reply, it will all be the GOP’s fault. We’re already seeing stuff, from Dems and Ron fucking Paul Libertarians, about how now that the GOP is in charge we can look for new wars.

Also, Obama has been fucking with our allies so we are totally not-trusted on the world stage. Case in point.

Lawyers for the Obama administration compared Israel’s control of Jerusalem to Russian claims over the Ukrainian territory of Crimea during oral arguments this week before the Supreme Court in a case concerning the rights of U.S. citizens to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on their passports.

 

He’ll work harder at stopping Israel than he ever did with Tsar Putin I expanding his empire.

Israel, being the only liberal democracy/republic outside EUnuchstan or North America, can never be forgiven for that.

 

Last, I think this is going to be huge.

They gave the highways Teh Peepul paid for to a private company to make money.

When the 95 Express Lanes open, all drivers will need an E-ZPass or an E-ZPass® FlexSM to travel on the lanes. Carpools with three or more people can travel toll-free on the Express Lanes with an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode.

 

So the HOV lanes in the greater DC metropolitan area were HOV-3 during rush hour and open to all otherwise.

But now car-pools will need to pay for EZ-Pass (which ain’t free even if they don’t have to pay to use the lanes),  They also have made it so hybrids no longer get to use the HOV lanes for free.

More.

The 95 Express Lanes rules of the road will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Dynamic pricing based on real-time traffic conditions manages the demand for the lanes, keeping the Express Lanes moving

 

So now you have to pay to use them off-peak and notice the part about “dynamic pricing”, they’ll arbitrarily change the cost depending on traffic. So if there’s an accident blocking 95 at midnight, you’ll have to pay rush-hour prices to get around on the HOV-lanes.

And since it’s a private company bribing elected officials, they can be very slimy.

How slimy?

So Joe was stunned when he got a staggering $17,000 fine for $36 in unpaid tolls. He tried to resolve the problem directly with Transurban, which manages the lanes for Virginia. But Joe could not get any resolution from the company, and facing a looming court date…

“The thing that frustrates me the most is they don’t care,” Joe said, referring to Transurban. “They aren’t trying to resolve this. They are trying to get $17,000 for [$36] in tolls they didn’t collect.”

All of Joe’s whopping $17,000 fines come from a month-long period in spring 2013 when his E-ZPass transponder wasn’t being read properly….

 

Expand this by many thousands and you’ll have a lot of pissed off people. And that’s going to be huge.

Why huge? Because he’s fucking with gov’t workers, You know, important people.

Sure they like screwing the assholes in fly-over country, but this is messing with bureaucrats with a huge sense of entitlement and an inflated sense of their own worth.

It would be hilarious if a revolution started because of that.

And since we’re in this particular end of civilization, that’s about what I’d expect.

So what did last night change? Nothing federally but a shitload locally. All those GOP governors are not going to so easily implement the federal govt’s anti-Constitutional power grabs.

 

Speaking of which, AZ passed their “We ain’t enforcing unConstitutional laws by the feds” proposition.

Viva La Revolucion!
