I haven’t been tubing for a while so when I did my rounds I found lots of stuff I didn’t know about.

Most of it not very funny but some of it terrifyingly  hilarious.

Let’s start with ISIS, it’s never funny and people get beheaded. First, an aside. Isis has been torturing, raping, beheading, hanging, crucifying and enslaving for a couple years now and they cut the heads off 3 journalists and now it’s WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our media has its priorities, 1,000 people get killed and it’s just wogs fighting wogs, not our business. Let a journalist, an important person, get killed and that makes it personal.

So Isis is recruiting openly in our NATO ally Turkey.

Our supporters can freely hang out in Istanbul streets, recruit poor people from suburbs & police will only help

Yay!!!! That would be just endy except we’d be allies with ISIS in Turkey and Syria as we bomb in Iraq. That’s pretty darn funny.

This one is sort of funny, surprising and a little depressing. Lebanon will not join our semi-kinetic action against ISIS.

“US and its allies created and trained these takfiri movements. We have stated that Lebanon cannot be a part of an alliance led by the US,” (Lebanese State Minister V)Fneish…

You realize what that means?

Since Hezbollah is a big part of the Lebanese gov’t, we will not be conducting airstrikes in support of Hezbollah attacks. So the opposite of funny as that would be endily hilarious. Eh too bad, there’s always Iran I guess.

In Sietch Terror news,

International airlines have suspended flights to Yemen’s capital as fighting…

Yemeni television’s three channels stopped transmitting on Friday…

 

the Jihadi V Jihadi war in that particular bucket of scorpions  is cruising right along.

I feel sorry for the people there who are not in favor of their jihadis and just want to live and let live.

Those two idiots should just leave Yemen.

A drudgetaposition

Putin Privately Threatens to Invade Poland, Romania and the Baltic States.

Ukraine Launches Joint Military Brigade With Poland and Lithuania.

 

Now, the seque from overseas to the US,

The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department.

 

I hope this goes through and actually gets some coverage from the assholes in Minitrue who are ignoring the feckless criminality of the Obama admin in the Benghazi deal.

 

Hmmm, I guess some people miss the rioting.

Mail Online reports that protesters made their plans known at the September 16th St. Louis City Council meeting. They “promised to disrupt grocery stores” and warned that if St. Louis Cardinals make it to the World Series, they will disrupt that too.

The protesters grew louder as the council meeting went on, demanding not only the arrest of Wilson but also “the resignations of both County Police Chief John Belmar and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson.” They also demanded that County Prosecutor Robert McCullock be removed from the case.

CBS St. Louis reports that the protesters are also trying to get St. Louis Rams ticket holders to donate tickets so protesters can “get in the dome” and shut the game down.

 

If this gets out of hand again, I could see it spreading to other cities, then the illegal immigrants get involved and then……. well, that’s when things get freaking ugly.

I fgure when the inner cities start rioting the police will grab their M-4s and grenade launchers,  jump in their MRAPs and go round tea partiers before they decide to riot too.

This is pretty funny, Karl Rove whining that the GOP isn’t getting as much in donations as they deserve.  I’d say Breitbart gets it right in the headline.

AFTER DECLARING WAR ON TEA PARTY, KARL ROVE FRETS GOP ESTAB CANDIDATES NOT GETTING ENOUGH DONATIONS

 

Funny how that works out, you shit on your base, call them names and they stop sending you money. Huh. Perplexing.

I understand Bob Beckel is not a journalist, but I bet he would claim he is so that’s what makes this funny.

“I’ll tell you: I would expect an October surprise,” Beckel said on Thursday. “I think I know what is — I’m not going to say it,

Journalists are not in the business of imparting information anymore. That’s pretty funny in an end of civilization way.

The most egregious example was how the media knew all about the OUTING OF SUPER-SECRET AGENT Jarret, they knew she was in the CIA before she was “outed” and they knew who “leaked” the well-known fact and yet, they pretended they didn’t for more than a year in order to be able to viciously attack their chosen party’s political enemy.

Via Say Uncle, a scourge on our nation, the no-knock raid.

Some Police Operators who wanted to Operate Tactically had a tactical operations order (search warrant) so one climbed in the window and then the rest busted down the door. So the homeowner defended himself, killing the window-invader and shooting other cops and now he’s on death row.

So why the raid? For “bags of cocaine” from some source. What did they find?

Though they found a glass pipe, a grinder, and a pistol, they did not find any drugs.

 

So he was a small time drug user who was out of whatever he smoked.

No knock raids should be outlawed in every case except where the police explicitly state on the search warrant that the perpetrator is ‘better off dead”.

via KaChing!, this is funny cuz it’s true.

safety first

 

David Gregory beclowns himself, part 3,254

Posted: September 17, 2014 by socklessjoe in Fun With Media

This isn’t just the pot calling the kettle black, it’s the carbon nanotube Vantablack calling the kettle black.

David Gregory, former MTP host:

“[I]n Washington political journalism the narrative gets set, and it gets set early and built on. And things that fight the narrative get harder to report out, I think, often because of laziness in media,” Gregory said. “I think that the media…has gotten very attached to the idea that Washington is so dysfunctional and that the country is so frustrated with it. There is a self-fulfilling part of that.”

Wait, wait, wait… The lazy media doesn’t want to go against the narrative?

Yeah.  David Gregory said that.

For real.

(via Drudge)

So some Islamic terrorists took over our abandoned embassy in Tripoli but the State Dept says don’t worry.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones said …

… it appeared the compound was being “safeguarded” and was not “ransacked.”

Be happy.

C’mon, that’s darn funny.Just like Theodoric safeguarded Rome for the emperors in Byzantium.

Western Liberals Agree With Islamic Terrorists!!!!!!! Stop the..wait, that’s not unexpected, this one is sorta funny.

After that, many, myself included, wondered: Should we – Muslim or not – learn the basics of Islam and have a read through the Koran? If one of us ever finds herself in a situation similar to that of Westgate Mall victims, could even a rudimentary knowledge of Islam save us?

As the first commenter said, guns do that too.

ISIS is pivoting back to Syria. Al Nusra is allied with ISIS for now.

he Nusra Front is losing several of its groups to ISIS, which is planning a comeback in the areas it lost in Syria now that its combat axes in Iraq have been stabilized.(emphasis me V) … ISIS will leave other rural areas to their own fate in awaiting Syrian regime forces advances and complete the siege of Aleppo before entering it as yet another conqueror.

 

As for the Turkmens, … operating as Turkish forces on Syrian soil, aided by many Turkmens from Turkey who have joined their ranks. To ISIS, these are renegade enemies much like the Kurds, such as the Northern Storm Brigade, who were pushed by ISIS and FSA factions into the arms of the pro-regime PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party). … ISIS will stop at the boundaries of the areas where the Kurds and Turkmens are deployed, thus paving the way for long wars of attrition.

 

It’s too bad Iraq had to become involved, because Hezbollah and all the other terrorists in the area fighting those even more savage savages is all about teh funny.

It’s also to bad Lebanon got dragged in, but that’s what happens when Hezbollah loses and another set of vicious savages defeats them.

But even that dark cloud has a pretty funny lining. Al Nusra is fighting on ISIS’ side in Syria and they recently went into Lebanon and killed and took captive some Lebanese soldiers, I think there were some Hezbollah in thei grouop.

The Al-Nusra Front has demanded that Lebanese Shiite party Hezbollah withdraw its forces from Syria and cease its support for the Syrian army as a condition for their release.

 

So they’re taking Hezbollah hostage and demanding concessions for their release. You know Hezbollah is saying, “Hey, that’s our schtick!!!!!”

At first I didn’t think this lived up to the headline, but I’ve had to change my mind.

These 23 Luis Gutierrez GIFs Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity

 

But since I have such a low opinion of humanity,  just when I started to have hope the fact that the tool can become powerful does restore my faith in humanity. And the gifs are pretty funny too.

We’ve all seen the vid of Joe Scarboroough saying that Obama saying he had no strategy against ISIS was straight out of Sun Tzu.

 

I’ll stick up for Joe.

if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.”

 

Straight out of Sun Tzu.

Obama has no idea what America is all about on the world stage or which other countries work for good and which actively work for evil so of course he will fail in foreign policy.

And if you think he should be impeached, President Joe Biden. The man who has been wrong on every foreign policy decision in the last 40 years who’s well into active/stupid so we’d go to war with Madagascar and lose.

 

Okay, this isn’t funny, (Warning!!!! Minitrue link) but it is. Because it’s Chicago machine politics writ large and Minitrue will back Obama up.

Cruz accused the White House of floating the idea. “There is one person and one person only talking about shutting down the government, and that is the White House,”

 

He’s going to shut down the gov’t, closing the most painful things for average Americans, and get his Minitrue allies to blame it on the GOP so our fine, free media’s chosen political party will do well in an election.

 

That’s not funny.

But it is.

 

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.

 

Update: If you don’t have any coffee, amphetamines or crystal meth to get your heart going or if you’re trying to work yourself up to fight off 10 or 15 machete-wielding MS=13 types,  read the comments on that article.

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

 

Important Update For Our “Readers” Living In Texas!!!!!!!!!1

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.
