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.

 

Important Update Below!!!!!

So the Puppy Blender links to a “bloomberg view” article with this quote

So let me finish by noting what I actually find disturbing about the whole Gruber episode. It is not that voters aren’t particularly well-informed; voters could not possibly be well-informed about all the issues that our government deals with.

 

What pisses me off is that many of us called bullshit in real time as this was happening and were called names by all our betters, including the people screeching at us about Grubergate!!!!! (I’m looking at you NRO).

more

which is why, when people ask me my opinions about foreign policy nowadays, I say, “I don’t know. Looks like a hard problem to me.”

Yeah, see that’s the coward’s way out.

Believe me, I understand that disagreeing with your group is a bad thing, but that doesn’t excuse pretending to believe outright lies, whether the ignorance is willful or a result of stupidity (Hello Shep!), matters not.

In short, Grubergate taught us nothing new about how Obamacare was sold and passed but it does show us how willfully ignorant/stupid and assholic our “elite” are.

And they will learn nothing whatsoever from Grubergate. They’ll be calling us unhelpful wackobirds when the next bit of lies “for our own good” come down the road.

Our establishment loves Obamacare, it gives them the control over our lives that they crave. They really pine for the days when peasants knew their place.

Fuck them all.

They think their OUTRAGE!!!!!! inoculates them from being called out on their credulity/willful ignorance.

It does not. Especially as all of our establishment/elite jackasses called tea partiers names for noting the reality that those douches are only now noticing.

As well all know, there is no sin worse than being correct too soon in that circle.

In my opinion there is no sin worse than being wrong too long. Everybody gets taken in once in a while, but when you viciously attack the people who are trying to explain reality, well, you’re a hopeless fuckwit who has no right to be in charge of anything. Take away their ant farms.

 

They think you’re idiots Update!!!!

Via Ace, we see the truth of what I’ve written in relation to our fine GOP betters.

It would be “impossible to defund President Obama’s executive order through a government spending bill, House Appropriations Committee spokeswoman Jennifer Hing said Thursday….

 

Yeah, about that

The only thing that differentiates mandatory and discretionary spending is how often each must be re-authorized. Every single dollar spent by the federal government must be first appropriated by Congress. Just because some spending is not subject to annual appropriation doesn’t mean it’s not subject to appropriation at all. Congress can’t block Obama’s executive order by shutting down the government, but it most certainly can defund it by law.

 

Now is the time in the election cycle for GOP voters to go “Derp”.

People are freaking out because some CNBC tool admitted that CNBC told her to stop with the Obama bashing.

Ummmmmm, that’s so old Ace thinks it’s old. From April, 2009

It was an intensive, three-hour dinner at 30 Rock which Zucker himself was behind, a source familiar with the powwow told us. “There was a long discussion about whether CNBC has become too conservative and is beating up on Obama too much. There’s great concern that CNBC is now the anti-Obama network. The whole meeting was really kind of creepy.

One topic under the microscope, our insider said, was on-air CNBC editor Rick Santelli’s rant two months ago about staging a ‘Chicago Tea Party’ to protest the president’s bailout programs — an idea that spawned tax protest tea parties in other big cities, infuriating theWhite House. Oddly, Santelli was not at the meeting, while Jim Cramer was, noted our source, who added that no edict was ultimately handed down by the network chieftains.

 

Jebus, did everything that happened before today not happen?

Important Update Below!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is hilarious.

You know who the big winner was in last week’s election?

No, not the GOP, this is a minitrue outlet after all.

The big winner was Hillary Clinton, that’s who.

Yes, I am all too aware that a few candidates who were given the Clinton stamp of approval—complete with multiple campaign appearances by Bill and Hillary—went down in flames.

 

You see, just because Arkansas switched to GOP in a way that hasn’t happened since the Civil War doesn’t mean a thing, The fact that the people she campaigned for lost is immaterial. In this world the Dems are always winning, and if they lose? That’s because you’re too stupid to realize they won.

He blames it on Obama, but ignores that Hillary! failed miserably in her bid to be a power broker.

 

Battlespace preparation or just a true believer truly believing?

A little from column A and a little from column B I figure.

I do expect us to see Minitrue explaining how Hillary! will fix everything Obama’s done because she’s just so politically astute and totally not an unlikable, cold, calculating liar.

 

An Important, Classical Music Interlude!!!!!!!!

 

Rock me Amadeus.

It’s funny, I always thought Carl W. Stalling wrote that.
