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.

Here we have J Effin Kerry warning Congress that they had better not oppose this deal the Iranians have already said they won’t make.

 

The Minitrue “journalists” are going all in on how this deal is so great.

They do mention Netanyahu saying it’s a stupid deal but immediately give Kerry the rebuttal, as if Netanyahu is the only one with a problem.

They just cannot admit any failures by their God-President.

Via Weasel Zippers.

 

Today’s Ridiculosity

Howard Kurtz Today

Tucker Carlson You’re Destroying The Integrity Of The News!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howard Kurtz a few years ago.

Yeah, no biggie that I refuse to criticize one of my bosses while doing media watchdogging for another boss.

And that’s why I never watch that asshole on Foxnews.

 

Rudy speaks

Posted: February 21, 2015 by socklessjoe in Fun With Media, Funniest End of Civilization Evah, GOP FAIL

Rudy Giuliani’s remarks about Obama’s socialist influences and less-than-love for America ought to be completely unremarkable.

Unfortunately, they seem to be remarkable to many.

Everything Rudy said was well-documented in 2008 as Obama rose to stardom. The problem is that Our Betters both in the GOP and the MSM thought that stating the obvious fact of Obama’s socialism was beyond the pale. And so, now when Rudy speaks truth, still nobody is prepared to hear it since we were never allowed to establish the groundwork in 2008.

He’s a nitwit. (added, I saw the link at Ace’s sidebar)

Jebus, Shep Smith has me defending a NY Times asshole who wrote about The Backlash Against The Muslims (that always seems to hit the Jews).

So the NY Times tool said, “We need to be careful…” and a little while later Shep attacks him for that, even though Shep said, “We are careful here” (obviously meaning Shep’s careful).

So Shep wants to know why the guy attacked him, even though the idiot from the Times was obviously not attacking Shep, but Western Civilization.

So in other words, birds of a feather piss on each other when they flock together.

A couple other things going on.

In France, Le Pen’s “Far Right” (read, admit aloud they’re not thrilled with allowing in more non-assimilating Muslims) Party won the last election.

So the French bein pensants are having a Unity Day,

Just a day after the Charlie Hebdo shooting left 12 dead and had politicians calling for the country to unite, a row between politicians broke out after the National Front were not invited to take part in Sunday’s rally for “national unity” in Paris.

 

Eh, it’s obviously only unity for those thinking bien thoughts.

I’ll leave you with the state of law-talking in the US

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.

I’ve been working online 4 hours a day these days so I’m on the tubes anyway.

Let’s go tubin!

ISIS, fresh from being defeated in Iraq by Obama (that’s why the media stopped reporting, right?), is on the run!!!! They ran to Libya where

The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group’s insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

 

Running scared, running amok…either way, Obama has them on the run, amiright?

Breitbart headline

REPUBLICANS LEAVE TOWN WITHOUT A PLAN TO FIGHT OBAMA

 

The only machiavellian tactics the GOP use are  on me.

It’s funny how the media keeps parroting the line that there is no inflation while anybody who shops for food knows there is.

LIFE IN THE ERA OF HOPE AND CHANGE: $4.15 Per Pound: Ground Beef Climbs to Another Record High. “Five years ago, in October 2009, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $2.177, according to the BLS.”

 

In AZ, decent  hamburger is over $4, even the crappy sleeve stuff that always comes up in poisoning deals is over $3.

What happens in a religious dictatorship? Let’s ask our fine, Green brethren.

Then it was finally revealed that while eggs did contain cholesterol, they also contain lecithin, which is the enzyme your body uses to break down cholesterol, and they have more lecithin that cholesterol, making the consumption of eggs something that actually reduces cholesterol….

t was dangerous for other people (women under 25) to have low cholesterol,

In my life eggs have been good for you, bad for you, good for you, bad for you…., ditto salt, bacon, olive oil, butter and more.

 

What made me absolutely stop paying attention was when I saw a report, back in the late 70s or early 80s, that said lettuce causes cancer. That’s when I realized they weren’t doing science, they were just fucking with me.

 

As an addendum to my post about how annoyed I was that people are finally noticing how big a liar Obama is, we see this post from Feb. 2012 about how people were noticing how he lied to get his stimulizing done.

True believers want to be deceived and that’s why I stated that they will not learn a thing when he lies the next time. You know, like over legalizing illegals.

 

Here we have some upcoming hilarity. Ace’s post in its entirety

Grubez “Invited” To Testify Before Issa’s Committee on Transparency

Awesome. If Grubez refuses the invitation, he might get a subpoena instead.

You realize what that means? As Obama is saying that he’s never heard of a Gruber, he’ll declare that Gurber can’t testify before Congress because of executive privilege.

That’s gonna be funny.

I anxiously await CNN explaining how the GOP are meanies for not agreeing this.

That’s gonna be funnier.

You know, in an infuriatingly endy way.
