Latest in the long running series, this has to be seen to not be believed.

First up, some of you might have seen this joke video from ’05

 

Yesterday CNN was doing this and I thought about this but Weasel Zippers actually linked the two vids.  I didn’t think of doing it and I’m kind of lazy anyway.

 

It’s pretty much a paraphrase of the first vid.

One of my favorite funnies is how two different people can look at the same thing, say the same thing and yet, mean exactly the opposite.

 

Unrelated to satire, but related because it’s the latest in another long-running series, Veeshir links DreM for saying something intelligent (by say something I agree with obviously), in this exciting episode, he has an excellent round-up of the GOP field.

I will say I don’t see Trump actually getting any traction in a third party run, that doesn’t mean I don’t think he’ll do it, he might want to do some more huckstering.

Still not sure if I’ll actually vote for him, mostly because I think he’s in it for himself, but so far his huckstering is doing a good thing.

I’m almost starting to hope he gets serious. All he’d do is gum up the works, he couldn’t legislate from the White House (the media would suddenly re-rediscover their job of being skeptical), and he could seriously mess with Congress. He couldn’t be any worse than Jeb Bush and would probably be much better (hell, Ron Paul would be better).

The biggest fly in that ointment is that, running/owning businesses that rely on retaliatorically-inclined unions, I’m not sure if he would rescind all the bribes/Obamacare waivers.

 

 

So we all know ISIS tweeted Pamela Gellar’s home address and said to go forth and do what Allah’s warriors do best, kill women, but where did they find her address?

According to iOwnTheWorld, it was some asshole named Fabian on Inside Edition, on CBS.

I can’t find any vid of him doing that, but I can find a story headlined,

Crowd in Garland, Texas Sang National Anthem while Gunfire Exploded in Shootout with Terrorists

And vid of Donald Trump saying the “Bitch wuz askin fer it”, I’m not linking either one, cuz I don’t like linking minitrue hate sites.

 

Seeing how much hate there is inside that edition, I’m gonna have to trust IOTWReport.

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.

This summer is really going to suck. Jeb Bush is going to get the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party’s nomination, the world is blowing up but in the meantime, we’re going to get to watch the race riots all over the country. (as the gov’t investigates the tea party)

In today’s exciting episode, all the news shows are showing a short, couple minutes of a much longer clip. That short part shows police, totally unprovoked, going all Judge Dredd on some innocent, choir-singing teens while the truth might be a little more nuanced.

Of course, our fine media betters don’t go in for nuance, they go in for race war so nobody’s talking about any exculpatory evidence on TV.

fergusummer 1

There’s a lot more at the post, including another video that shows how earlier the youths were mostly peacefully discussing the arrangement of their choir and who gets to work first at the soup kitchen and who gets to help orphans with their homework and laundry.

What the news shows are showing is a very inflammatory part of a much longer video and even if the rest is shown and we see the thugs deserved what they got, it’s too late. It’s already become Truth!, which is to truth as Science! is to science.

Of course, we know CNN and MSNBC will be pushing the Racist Cops meme so any facts will get in the way.

I’m not saying the cop was a saint, but I am saying it’s not what the media is pushing.

I condemn my fascist racism so you don’t have to.

I also hope Benet Embry has the ability to move, change his name and maybe get a sex-change operation to avoid the totally justified Lynching he’s about to deal with.

Important Update!!!!!

Mostly peaceful concert-goers are attacked by police!!!!!!

I will say that I’m happy to see the cops in actual riot gear instead of camo and carrying M-4s, as they did in Ferguson.

Trick question, it’s both!!!

In Phony War news, Ukraine!

Poroshenko said the army successfully repelled the attack “of Russian soldiery” and had to use artillery to keep a town under Ukraine’s control. Poroshenko said they warned the European leaders that Minsk accords (cease fire with Russia, link by me V) were violated.

“The military must be ready as much for a renewal of an offensive by the enemy in the Donbas as they are for a full-scale invasion along the whole length of the border with Russia. We must be truly ready for this,” Poroshenko says, adding that at least 9,000 Russian soldiers are being operating in the Russian-controlled area.

 

Sure Russia is broke and their military has crappy, 20-year-old, commie crap, but Ukraine has the same problems and they haven’t received the upgrades from the tech Russia was sold by…stole from the US

 

Hezbollah has jihad envy so they’re attacking ISIS.

I have to admit, I wish they would join Obama’s semi-kinetic effort to degrade/annoy ISIS so we could perform airstrikes in support of one terrorist organization that’s killed plenty of Americans against another terrorist organization that’s killed fewer Americans.

I’ve been ignoring China, that’s not because they’ve stopped being all expansiony and bellicose but because I figure they’re not that far from using their military against someone. I’m trying to figure out who. Philippines? Japan? Vietnam? Us? Russia?

I’m mostly just hoping the Navy hasn’t allowed Obama to get rid of all their competent leaders as he’s so obviously doing to the Army and Marines.

 

Yesterday was day 756 since we discovered Obama was using the IRS to attack his political enemies and what’s Congress doing about it?  Not a blessed thing, but the Treasury Dept is on the job!!!!

While the TIGTA report will put the matter back in Congress’ hands, it’s uncertain whether it will arm lawmakers with enough new information to rejuvenate their stalled investigation into the scandal — or whether they’ll have the appetite to follow through on any new information that does emerge.

 

Yeah, about that, Congress will delay things until just before the next election so they can appear to be DOING SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So get ready to clap your fins and HONK YOUR HORNS!!!!!!

GOP Voter Device

GOP Voter Device

Don’t forget to get yours!

Speaking of our fine, Congressional, betters.

With a newly installed Republican majority that campaigned as fiscal conservatives one would expect big government Democrats to be howling in pain about all the “unfair budget cuts,…

One would be acting very stupidly to expect that.

but unfortunately big government Republicans are doing as much or more spending as would be expected from the Democrats.

I still feel embarrassed that I thought the GOP wanted to borrow a little under a $trillion and the Dems a little over when they were competing with the Dems to see who could spend the most.

And they are using the gimmicks and tricks they all campaigned against to continue the ruinous spending.

Why, it’s as if they think we’re idiots!

Listen, if you have to watch those feckless assholes to know what they’re doing, you haven’t been paying attention so doing so now is not going to help.

 

In  more Gov’t Being Responsive News(link added): DC!

The District of Columbia Police Department said on Monday it has not issued any gun-carry permit denials since a federal judge ruled the city’s requirement that applicants show a special need to carry a firearm unconstitutional.

You could take that to mean they are handing out permits. Well you could if you were gullible, stupid or willfully ignorant.

Conboy could not say whether any new applications would be approved or what would happen to those whose applications had been denied under the now defunct “good reason” clause.

“We’re awaiting further guidance from the Office of the Attorney General on other applications,” he said.

They will slow roll this and get away with it. Who is going to force them to follow any judge’s rulings? Obama’s “Justice” Dept? The DC police?

If you believe either of those two anti-freedom entities are going to enforce the Constitution,  I have some beach front property to sell you. Sure you can’t see the ocean from AZ, but you get plenty of sun and sand!

 

This one is pretty funny, mostly because I’m not a Baltimore resident or Baltimore Cop.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby plans to seek a protective order that would block the release of Freddie Gray’s autopsy report and other “sensitive” documents as she prosecutes the six police officers involved in his arrest….

The move is the latest effort by Mosby’s office to restrict information in the high-profile case. Her office has also sought a gag order to prevent participants from discussing the case in public, and has broken with a long-standing practice by not giving a copy of the autopsy report to Baltimore police.

She’s hiding evidence from the defense. Rules of discovery are being suspended because White Privilege!!!!!

I can’t tell if this defense attorney is stupid, ignoring reality or just trying to get a soundbite out there.

“It’s as if she wants to do everything to make sure our clients do not get a fair trial.”

The deuce you say!

 

This is the media!

thisisthe-media

Heh. Heh I say. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think enough people pay attention to Time to really affect anything, but that’s pretty funny.

 

I feel a little stupid, lately I’ve talked about hydraulic despotism and indentured servitude (don’t get me started on debtor’s prison) but I’ve been ignoring the comeback of guilds.

Mark Rippetoe: Should Personal Trainers and Coaches Be Licensed by the State? Occupational licensing is always a tool to protect the connected from competition by the unconnected. It’s justified in the name of protecting consumers, but it’s never demanded by consumers, but by members of the industry being protected.

Midieval Guildmasters would approve.

Medieval Guilds
The guilds were an important part of city and town life. Guilds were exclusive, regimented organizations;
created in part to preserve the rights and privileges of their members; and separate and distinct from the civic governments, but since the functions and purposes of guild and civic government overlapped, it was not always easy to tell them apart, especially since many well-to-do guildsmen were prominent in civic government.

Mustn’t forget the bribes from the guildmasters and the added power over people this gives to our elected officials.

Everything old is new and everything new is getting pretty dam old.

 

 

 

In Losing The Campaign News

Headline

Rand Paul just sacrificed his presidential campaign for his libertarian principles

For saying

The point I wanted to make is that we can still catch terrorists using the Constitution.”

Ummmmmmm, no.

He sacrificed his presidential campaign for saying that others apparently want the terrorist to win just to spite him, I’d say most Americans are against the NSA acting like the Stasi.

You do have to love Maverick (R-Media) helping them to attack him

Whether or not it was his prime motivation, as Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggest, Paul will earn a lot of money for his presidential campaign.

Asshole, when you agree with Dianne Feinstein (D-umber than a box of Boxers) on anything, you know you’re acting stupidly.

If he’s going to make money off his stance, wouldn’t that mean it’s sorta popular?

I mean, I know minitrue hates anything smelling of Tea Party… oh right.

 

In Losing the Gulf War II News you gotta love this headline from the number 2 minitrue outlet (We’re the Shit!)

While nobody was looking, the Islamic State launched a new, deadly offensive

 

Yeah, see, you might not have been looking. Obama was certainly not looking, but for anybody not a sucker of leftist dicktations, it was blatantly obvious that they weren’t going to just sit on the ground they’ve taken.

They’ve been marching across the whole middle east and particularly Syria/Iraq as Iraqi troops run away,they just took thousands of Humvees, plenty of Abrams tanks, American artillery and ammo for same and you idiots are surprised they went on an offensive?

That story is actually providing affirmation in the guise of providing information, ISIS is attacking but Obama could not have known!!!!!!!

 

In Losing One’s Mind news, this one from some CNN tool is hilarious,

i'm an idiot

I agree, being a lesbian trapped in a man’s body is cisnormative or heteronormative or whatever the hell I’m supposed to call it today(and very teenage male cisnormative), but that’s not what he meant.

He was meant that saying Bruce Caitlyn Kardash….Jenner in hisher its I’m Making Money Off Being a Freak costume is attractive is a bad thing.

Apparently, we need to celebrate hisher…its choice to be the freakiest of the Kardashian freakshow without assigning any normative…normal values to it.

Via Weasel Zippers, who usually see the endy but don’t always see the funny.

 

In Losing The Cold War News, I can’t believe I missed this one

Minority small business owners have the most to lose if the Obama administration’s labor regulators do away with the franchise business model, according to a new report.

 

No, not the utterly unfunny “World Ends, Women, Minorities Hardest Hit”.

But that Obama is trying to do away with franchises. WTF? He’s now trying to destroy every last small business owner in America.

Jebus, I wish someone would tell him we won the Cold War.

 

So what did we learn today?

Not a blessed thing, except I learned about another angle Obama is using to destroy America.

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?”
