Once again, African-Americans have been sold a bill of goods about what constitutes “justice” in a particular circumstance. And it seems likely that once again the promised “justice” will not eventuate.

The last prominent case of this was the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin shooting. Stipulated that George Zimmerman is a complete asshat, there was never enough evidence to properly charge him with homicide, let alone convict him. And yet Af-Ams, incited by the professional demagogues, were convinced that anything short of Zimmerman being drawn and quartered was a miscarriage of justice.

Then we saw the photos of Zimmerman, somewhat worse for wear. A thoughtful person might come to the conclusion that perhaps things were not so cut and dried. But once incited or committed to a political position, many were –or at least professed to be– outraged by Zimmerman’s acquittal.

Similarly with the shooting of Michael Brown, blacks have been sold a bill of goods about Darren Wilson. Of course, now we have conflicting eyewitness reports. If this story about Wilson having a fractured eye socket turns out to be true, look out.

But according to the Beeb, 76% of Af-Ams have “little or no confidence” in the official investigation.

(That sound you just heard was me doing the biggest facepalm I have done since Obama was re-elected.)

I have no idea how you deal with this.  There is every possibility, probability even, that no charges will stick to Wilson.

Hey, let’s send Eric Holder to straighten things out!

The veneer of civilization wears ever thinner.

Motherfucking motherfuckers, I give you Minitrue!

I checked to see if I could find stories about the “strained ceasefire” but instead found all manner of stories about “ceasefire crumbles”. Israel fought back so the ceasefire has crumbled, I’m sure it was only strained when Hamas murdered and kidnapped.

This one is emblematic of the pieces of the Jew-hating, murderous-savage-defending shits that are our media betters.

At least 50 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza strip on Friday, with Israel also alleging that Hamas had fired early morning rockets. This latest, 72-hour UN-brokered ceasefire, has now officially collapsed.

Israel launches ground incursion in Gaza Strip LIVE UPDATES

Soon after the ceasefire started at 8am local time (05:00 GMT), an Israeli tank opened fire in the southern Rafah area, the Gaza Interior Ministry said. At least 40 people were killed in the attack, hospital officials told Reuters. That number later climbed to 50 at around midday GMT, with a further 220 wounded.

Israel insisted that the IDF was only responding to Hamas attacks.

“Hamas violated the humanitarian ceasefire which began this morning by firing rockets at Israel from Gaza,” the Jerusalem Post cited the Israeli Foreign Ministry as saying.

The statement went on to allege how it took Hamas “two hours and four minutes to violate the ceasefire.”

 

You see, the Israelis called off the ceasefire. Hams killed and kidnapped, but that just meant the cease-fire was strained, Israel fighting back means that Israel called off the cease-fire.

Notice everything happening to Palestinians is stated definitively while everything happening to Israel is “Israel claims” and also notice that they make sure to let you know Israel is shooting but nowhere do they mention rockets, mortars or kidnapping.

Assholes.

Important Update Below!!!!!!

Don’t forget, before our fine Minitrue betters were lying for Obama and Hamas, they were lying for Saddam.

For example, in the mid-1990’s one of our Iraqi cameramen was abducted. For weeks he was beaten and subjected to electroshock torture in the basement of a secret police headquarters because he refused to confirm the government’s ludicrous suspicion that I was the Central Intelligence Agency’s Iraq station chief. CNN had been in Baghdad long enough to know that telling the world about the torture of one of its employees would almost certainly have gotten him killed and put his family and co-workers at grave risk.

 

You see, they needed access, so lying for Saddam gave them access. They never seemed to question whether the “access” was worth the lies. Recall also that Foxnews left Iraq without explaining why. But they’re Fauxnews and CNN is all good and shit.

Keep that story in mind when you read stories about Hamas.

Hell, even Foxnews, and not just nitwits like Shep, are saying stuff like, “Israel says that Hamas is using human shields. Meanwhile, a brazillion civilians died in Israeli rocket strikes” without noting that it’s Hamas giving the world the “civilian” casualty numbers and who killed them.

A little primer on who’s killing who that I’ve seen in a few places this morning.

The media immediately took the Hamas line that it was Israeli missiles. Later, the IDF stated that it had not fired on those locations, and that the explosions were misfired Hamas or Islamic Jihad missiles.

The media played it as he said, he said.

But an Italian journalist has just left Gaza and is telling the truth about what happened now that he needs not fear Hamas retaliation — Israel was right (h/t Israelly Cool):

 

The media is so used to lying against people who believe in individual freedom and responsiblity that they no longer care who they’re lying for.

I will say that my paranoia is getting worse. Even our fine, ignorant, minitrue betters are noticing that Obama’s fecklessness and retirement is not helping the world stay peaceful.

Whenever minnitrue notices something that makes their God-President look bad, it’s after it’s become insoluble.

Which brings up impeachment, does anybody think things would be better if he were impeached? President Joe Biden (wrap your head around that) would keep the same people who are actually running the gov’t in place so we’d lose a retired president to get one who’s well into Energetic and Stupid

Semi-Related But Really Just Not Worth Its Own Post Update Below!!!!!

I’m pretty confused about this. Not about the base story, I’ll get to the confusion later.

It’s a story about a Slate article on a horrible thing doctors are doing to children.

…is an overwrought, almost hysterical Slate opinion piece about an exceptional act of cruelty visited upon every child born in a Western hospital. When I started reading the article, I assumed that the exceptional act of cruelty was going to be circumcision.  This assumption made less and less sense the more I read…

I next thought that the horrible thing being done to children was vaccinations, but that couldn’t be right. Newborns don’t get vaccinations, and this opinion piece was quite clearly focused on newborns….

 

Wait for it…wait for it…..

It was only as I kept on reading that I realized the real terror visited upon children unlucky enough to be born in hospitals: doctors look at their external genitalia and, based upon what they see, they assign a gender designation to the child.

 

Get it? Looking at whether the child has an innie or an outie to determine sex is oppression.

So my confusion, after the monkey fishing deal, why the hell does anybody ever take Slate seriously?

But then, I’m still trying to figure out why people read and report on anything Politico does since one of their first big articles was a lying hit job on Teh Fred that was thoroughly discredited and shown to be a lie when video of the event came out.

Update with better link for the hit job with quote

but that he doctored a quote to make his article appear all the more damning.

 

 

Now that I think about it, that actually makes a little sense. The pooh-baaaaas in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party didn’t like Teh Fred any more than they like me so the only push back is from assholes like me who judge people on their actions and not the purty words or correct accent coming out of their mouths.

 

Saw this at Ace but it was pretty much a blind link so I figured nobody who reads here and there clicked it. Not sure why did, bored I guess.

 

 Update:Speaking of people we should not pay attention to, I give you:

Peggy Noonan, she of the multi-year process of figuring out that, despite what all the important people know, Obama is a Chicago-Machine politician and always acts that way.

There is every sign he let the crisis on the border build to put heat on Republicans and make them pass his idea of good immigration reform. …

The little children…are pawns in a larger game. That game is run by adults. How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?

 

You stupid bint. Pay attention!

Or rather, learn something even though you already know far too much to every learn anything.

First, we have an Obama mega donor arrested for manslaughter and also doing what Obama’s friends do, corruption.

So why is that about Minitrue? I checked the NY Times, Wash Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and Foxnews and got zero (0) hits. The NY Daily News has a story, that’s about it for larger Minitrue outlets.

Next, we have the feds claiming there’s no inflation and Minitrue is ignoring that there is inflation and also that the gov’t is flat out lying about it.

 

Don’t forget, Minitrue are idiots too,  Weasel Zippers links to the Gruaniad saying Kerry got dissed by the Egyptians, he wanted them to free some al Jazeera “journalists” and they aren’t going to. Hmmmmm, they’ve just sentenced a bunch of jihadis to death and now they’re going after a couple of al Jazeera ‘journalists”. I don’t know for sure, but I have my suspicions on just who J. Effin Kerry was trying to protect so I’m assuming these al Jizz “journalists” are not fans of western civilization.

The Telegraph is one of the few outlets that will notice that global warmmongers lie.

When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data.

Yeah, I sometimes imagine trying to explain to people from another time about global worming. People for centuries to come will be making fun of us. Except for the people living in the immediate aftermath of the collapse, they’ll be pissed off. I just hope they know to take their anger out on Minitrue too. Those bastids deserve it.

The Phoney IRS Scandal That The GOP Keeps Trying to Keep Going has another twist,  soon after Lois Lerner’s computer “crashed” (which happened soon after the investigation started) the IRS cancelled their email-storing company and yet, Minitrue continues to obfuscate the  issue.

So what did Koskinen do that qualified him to lead the IRS?

On September 16, (2008 V) Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director James
Lockhart announced the government had appointed John Koskinen as the new
non-executive chairman of Freddie Mac

 

So he’s pretty good at obfuscating gov’t wrongdoing.

 

When the entirety of our informational sources lie constantly there can be no hope for a representative democracy.

We’re boned.

 

Some other stuff going on that’s gonna KILL US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

Ebola getting out of hand in Africa with this encouraging quote

Officials believe the wide footprint of this outbreak is partly because of the close proximity between the jungle where the virus was first identified and cities such as Conakry. The capital in Guinea has a population of 2 million and an international airport.

 

Yay!?

Kerry with some hilarity. The US support of Iraq will be,

The support will be intense, sustained,

 

Does even he believe that? Is he that stupid? Yes, but that doesn’t mean he believes it.

You Make The Call!!!

 

A little bit of endicious hilarity.

A British teenager named Mohammad Hadi, 18, from the city of Coventry in the West Midlands, is believed to have joined the increasingly-powerful Islamic militant group the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS),

 

Wait for it…..wait for it……

The young man, of Iraqi-Kurdish decent, is nicknamed ‘Osama Bin Bieber

Seriously.

Riddle me this, morons…

How is it that repealing Obamacare could add to the deficit?

The original CBO score was a joke, and they had to lie, scrimp, and steal from other programs (like the student loan program) to make the bill as a whole score in their favor.

Since then, they’ve gone back on any number of cost saving and/or tax-raising measures, not the least of which are Tsar Obama’s royal proclamations of waivers and delays.

It was a lie to start, and they compounded the lie.

Fact Check: TRUE!

Huh?

Where Is Everybody?

Posted: March 27, 2014 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Obama's Fault

moron

 

I know where I’ve been, reading stupid shit like this and saying, “Well duh“.

But it (Wash Post fact-free hit piece on Emmanuel Goldstein… the Kochs V) may have been even more political, and more nakedly partisan, than we suspected. Today Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman wrote a letter to David Robertson, President and COO of Koch Industries. The Democrats’ letter was premised almost entirely on the Washington Post’s discredited article; it repeatedly footnoted that article and the IFG report on which the Post story was based. The two Democrats concluded by requesting that Koch answer questions and produce a long series of documents relating in various ways to the Keystone pipeline.

 

With this hilarious question

The Democrats’ letter raises an obvious question: did the Washington Post publish its article attempting to link Koch to Keystone at the request of Whitehouse and/or Waxman, or at the request of other Democrats who were coordinating with Whitehouse and Waxman?

 

Yes. Pay attention!

I mean really, doesn’t anybody remember “Macaca” or “The THESIS!!!!!!!!!!” or any of probably hundreds of other stories the Post hammered and then we saw Dem pols using them in their ads?

They SCREAM THE ACCUSATION and whisper the correction. If there even is a correction, which there usually isn’t.

 

Each and every global warmmongering prediction is wrong, from the ice-free North Pole to the warmest, driest winter in 2013-2014 to the fact that the globe stopped warmening in 1997 and yet, the media hammers, “The Science!!!!! is Settled!!!!!!”

 

We see people saying owing more than the GDP is not a bad thing while lying about it. As Uncle says, the feds are over $200 trillion in debt if you count all the unfunded crap like pensions and social security.

The IRS is still saying, “Go fuck yourselves” to Congress as the media covers for them.

Benghazi is down the memory hole, ditto Fast and Furious and the rest of the too many to list or even want to remember of what should be Obama scandals but aren’t because Minitrue is too busy attacking me.

Speaking Power To Truth!!!!!

Syria is still Iran V. Saudi Arabia in a jihadi war that’s dragging Lebanon down with it and the media is ignoring it.

Venezuela is screwed, blued and tattooed and the media is ignoring it.

Obama lost the Iraq war years (Minitrue warning, lying sacks of shit at the Wash Post) after we won it and the media is ignoring.

We’re fighting to no end in Afghanistan and now the media ignores the Rising Death Toll!!!!! that was all the rage when they could hammer Bush.

Hell, Obama’s even losing the Cold War more than 2 decades after we fucking won it and the fucking media is allowing Obama to say shit like, “This invasion is Putin showing his weakness. (hey Wash Post, you got some cum on your chin there)” after he gives another “WARNING!!!!!!!!” that’s absolutely meaningless.

(double links are so the Wash Post can see me calling them liars and Obama suckophants if they look at their trackbacks).

The part that gets me is how he treats the media, from invading their files to siccing the fucking Coast Guard on them to barring them from stuff like M’Shell’s vacation to China to forcing them to provide questions beforehand to just blowing off their questions and attacking them instead of answering.

Is the advancement of their agenda really more important than their own freedom?

I mean, I understand they are actively hostile to my freedom, but their own?

Global Warmmongers lie.

But then, you knew that.

Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming.

 

Anybody who didn’t know this was not true has never paid attention to anything. I would occasionally try to argue against this with people who claimed it, but it’s Holy Writ and thus, not open to argument.

Does anybody really think you could get 97% of any group to agree with anything?

Cripes, Dentyne could only get 80% of dentists to recommend sugar-free gum.

Via my second favorite Weasel

Zippers.

Speaking of liars, just a little funny.

Obama says he’s going to veto a law that says he has to follow the law.

I don’t know why he’d veto it, it’s not as if he’s going to follow any laws and if any judges get involved, well, he still has the IRSNSAFBIEPA and the fucking Coast Guard to put any judges in their places.

The funniest part is that people are acting all surprised that a Chicago-Machine politician is acting like a Chicago-Machine politician.

Don’t forget

Below the fold, some hope from my favorite Weasel.

Transparent!

Posted: February 17, 2014 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Obama's Fault

I have to admit, the Obama admin is the most transparent I’ve seen.

I should say I was barely a teenager during Carter’s tenure so I wasn’t paying all that much attention.

Last year I wrote this.

 (bold is quote from the linked article, rest is me from the post V)

“President Obama is sending a lawmaker whose relationship with Hugo Chavez has come under scrutiny in the past to represent the United States at the Venezuelan strongman’s funeral on Friday.”

The only way I read that is Obama’s letting whoever takes over Chavez’ thugocracy know he’s got their back.

Today we see further reinforcement that his Minitrue minions (or is he their minion?) know how to take dicktation.

Anti-American thugs beating people up just doesn’t get the attention of the U.S. media, particularly when they are communists.

Assholes.

Especially since this was entirely predictable.

There are two main guys under Chavez, Cabello who’s in charge of the military wing of Chavez’ dictatorship, and Maduro who’s in charge of the civilian side, I’d suggest that means, secret police.

It didn’t really matter, in general, which of Chavez’ thug underlings won, I’d figure the secret policeman would be a little slimier while the military dictator would be more brutal but less selective.

So the secret policeman won without having to kill the military guy so it’s slimy and brutal but Obama always sides against the democracy folks and Journolist knows what their Teleprompter Jesus wants so ignore it they will.

Start Spinning The News

Posted: February 12, 2014 by veeshir in Fun With Media

King of the hill, top of the heap.

NY Post.

During his mayoral campaign, Bill de Blasio railed against “special favors for well-connected corporations.” But now we’re learning the mayor dispenses his own favors for the well-connected.

 

NY Daily News

A church pastor with outstanding warrants — and a position on Mayor de Blasio’s inaugural committee — dodged a night in the slammer after Hizzoner made a call to one of the city’s top cops.

 

All The News That’s Fit To Spin

Mayor’s Call Did Not Prompt Pastor’s Release, Police Say

 

They didn’t report on the story until they could get the right spin, they note others reported it but they’re here to set the record straight. Sure Hizzoner called the cops, but they didn’t let him go because of the call, they did it for totally unrelated reasons.

I figure it’s Sarah Palin’s fault.

I will apologize to all my NY reader(s), but I haven’t been to a bar in NY in over a decade so I haven’t had to put up with that song a dozen times as last call nears. I also haven’t worked in an Italian restaurant for 15 years so I am no longer sick of Frankie and Deano.
