Some lazy tubin today, I’m just gonna link to sites you should be reading but that need my particular………..idiom.

first, the Puppy Blender section.

I think we’ve found out what Jamie Gorelick is doing these days.

“The NBC News investigative reporter Matthew Cole has pieced together a remarkable story revealing that a single senior officer, who is still in a position of high authority over counterterrorism at the C.I.A.—a woman who he does not name—appears to have been a source of years’ worth of terrible judgment, with tragic consequences for the United States. Her story runs through the entire report

I just hope that there are not two women in gov’t with that kind of touch. Because one is an aberration, two implies more and that’s just too scary to contemplate.

We have Pakistani pols afraid to hunt down terrorists and thus go against the country’s true power brokers. In America, our establishment prick pols actively go and find power brokers to tell them what to do. Interesting, in Pakistan they’re afraid of being killed, in America they’re afraid of being broke.

I’m not sure which I’d prefer.

Speaking of establishment pricks, Mitch McConnell!

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is giving up his bid to become the next Budget Committee chairman…

Sessions has been the panel’s top Republican for the past four years…

That story has the same veracity and, indeed, the same source as the story that Senator Ted Cruz’s opposition to Obama’s immigration power grab led to the approval of stalled Obama nominees: Mitch McConnell.

Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who often clashed with McConnell’s leadership team — wrote in an article last week in Conservative Review: “If Sessions loses the chair of the budget committee, it is only under the orders and direction of McConnell.”

It’s all too complicated to explain and McConnell’s hands are tied so the guy who might something I’d like has to go.

When I lived in the northeast, I had EZ-Pass, now, I own a Mustang GT convertible, I used to drive a little fast. I was waiting for them to start giving out speeding tickets using the time stamps and vowed I would stop using it when (not if) that happened.

Well, it’s happening.

Several states, including New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania, say they monitor speeds through the fast pass toll lanes and will suspend your E-Z Pass for multiple speeding violations.

Sure, not they’re just suspending your EZ pass, but pretty soon they’ll be ticketing you. Be warned.

Gov’t is spending too much money on stuff they’re not supposed to do so they need new sources of revenue and they’re getting unbelievably scummy about it.

Say Uncle has a little drudgetaposition post.

Obama says trying to censor movies is bad. And he would know since he tried to do it too

 

Heh.

Heh I say.

A nother hilarity that would be unexplainable even 20 years ago.

Health and Human Services released long overdue guidelines Friday ordering facilities that house illegal immigrant children to set up sexual abuse prevention programs, and to be prepared to deal with tricky cases such as transgender or intersex children.

 

Okay, that’s darn funny. I mean, I understand there’s going to be sexual assaults, these people don’t believe in laws, duh, but the transgender/intersex kids is hilarious. Somehow, I doubt that’s a big problem in the poor Latin American or terrorist communities that are the bulk of the recent flood of illegals. I leave out jihadis who wear hijabs to evade security or course.

Which leads to the Obama doctrine. Hi-freaking-larious.

Obama told reporters he joked with Communist dictator Raul Castro this week….

Minutes later in the press conference Barack Obama slammed America’s neighbor Canada.

 

I mean, it’s not a surprise that Obama prefers murderous dictators to elected leaders, but sooner or later even our ‘elite’ have to start noticing it, right?

In Nork news

kim jong il

Putin invites the poofy-stomached, Kim Jong KG, to Russia.

The worst part about that? If we had competent leadership, only Bugs Bunny could do justice to what they could do, but since we have a man in charge who’s adept at losing wars we’ve already won, that means we could lose the Cold War and the Korean “conflict”. Sigh.

Speaking of the Norks, they do have a sense of humor.

North Korea on Saturday proposed a joint investigation with the U.S. into the hacking attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment,

Okay, that’s pretty darn funny and I’m actually rooting for them to succeed. That’ll be funny and endy, all we’re seeing these days is endy.

I do like the “We’ll Kill You All!!!!” part of their ‘request’.

warning of “serious” consequences if Washington rejects a probe that it believes will prove Pyongyang had nothing to do with the cyberattack.

Heh.

So what did we learn today?

Not a blessed thing except that even the Norks are noticing the feckless idiocy of our current God-President’s foreign policy.

Last, via the first Lumbersexual, file this under, “Things Veeshir Would Give Almost Anything To Do.”

whee

Preach It Brother!

Posted: December 15, 2014 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah, GOP Win!

Senator Mike Lee on the latest continuing spending $trillions bill.

Since this bill was taken up in the House of Representatives, supporters of the CRomnibus have couched their support in the language of compromise. “This isn’t a perfect bill,” they say.

However, I believe it is perfect. As a representation of everything wrong with Washington, D.C, and as an example of exactly the kind of unfair, unrepresentative legislating that triggered successive electoral waves of bipartisan condemnation in 2006, 2008, 2010, and again in 2014 – the CRomnibus is perfect.

 

Exactly.

What bothers me about this is when a politician says something so good they’re almost always just saying what they think I want to hear.

In other words, they don’t mean it. I would hope he does, but it doesn’t really matter. What can “out” congresscritters do against their own party ‘leaders’?

Speaking of which,  I found this site, approved by the GOP leadership.

I like this one.

GOP Voter Device

 

 

So Congress passed the continuing spending $trillions resolution

Will they pass a budget when the whole shebang is in GOP hands?

Of course not. Obama will veto the first budget in years and the GOP just knows they’ll be blamed for the shutdown so they won’t even fight, they’ll just keep passing continuing spending $trillions resolutions.

The worst part? It’s financing only the “discretionary” stuff not the entitlements. In other words, they need a bill for the stuff gov’t is supposed to do and the stuff it’s not supposed to do happens automatically.

Nobody but reality can fix that shit and the GOP and the Dems are refusing even to accept we have a problem.

And what to the Dems do?

They release a “torture” report that has no recommendations that cost $40 million that only serves to give China and North Korea a chance to bash us while Minitrue solemnly nods their plastic heads.

Obama and the Dems keep saying it’s a mea culpa, America got something wrong and we’re admitting it!

But it’s really a thea culpa, they’re blaming it all on the CIA saying they had no idea what was going on.

You know, even though we all knew what was going on.

It’s mostly a distraction thing that allows Minitrue to talk about that instead of any IRS/Benghazi/ISIS/ebola/Fast and Furious… news.

We’re fucked.

A GOP who won’t fight and Dems who get away with the slimiest, most scummy things imaginable.

I had high hopes the Ferguson/NYC riots would spread to some real unrest so we could get to the martial law that Obama’s so obviously pining for, but I forgot when we are.

Instead of spreading all over they’ve mostly just destroyed stuff in the parts of Ferguson where the Social Injustice took place and got some hippies in Berkeley beat up.

It’s hard to be against riots when that happens.

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”.

 

A few posts ago, while talking about Obama ‘destroying the Democratic party” (Just like Clinton in the 90s) I wrote

See, once the Dems get power they don’t care all that much about keeping it, they care about advancing their agenda.

If anybody had actually read it, they probably though I was idiot.

Or rather, they thought I was more of an idiot.

What I meant was that, with gerrymandering, the leadership in both parties are in ‘safe’ districts. That means that it is extremely unlikely they’ll lose their re-election bid. they can  only be primaried and not voted out in the general election.

Case in point.

Rep Tammy Duckworth lost two legs fighting in Iraq when her helicopter went down in 2004. She is now pregnant (in the last month of her pregnancy) and her doctors tell her not to travel. That means she must stay in her District until the child is born in next few weeks. Here is the outrage: Democrats will NOT let her vote by proxy (absentee ballot) when they have their vote for House Democratic Leadership positions. OUTRAGEOUS! And this is not about a bill on the Floor of House, it is their ‘student council’ vote — who will have what leadership roles among House Democrats. Leader Pelosi needs to fix this PRONTO.

 

All Pelosi and Boehner care about are their perks and power, they couldn’t give a shit about their foot-soldiers.

Recall Denny Hastert, he had that attitude. Too bad his loss didn’t wake up Boehner. And that’s why I don’t think Boehner will do crap about Obamacare, he has his agenda and it has very little to do with what the GOP claims to care about.

So the GOP won the Senate. What are they going to do about Obamacare?

It will be a tale.

Run by idiots, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.

They’ll try to “fix” it.

Ace links to a few articles about how Obama is destroying the Democratic party. You know, just like Clinton did in the 90s.

A sample quote

For all the talk that this midterm election was about nothing, 2014 really was just about one thing: Barack Obama’s failure to live up to his presidency’s promise in almost every domestic and foreign policy arena.

 

See, once the Dems get power they don’t care all that much about keeping it, they care about advancing their agenda.

So what has Obama accomplished?

Obamacare, the relaxation of the rule of law and the shifting of the conversation from “The gov’t needs to stay out of my medical questions” to, “The gov’t is in charge of my medical questions and taking it away is like trying to kill all wymyn and childryn”.

As usual, Democratic policies have emboldened our enemies so if we have to reply, it will all be the GOP’s fault. We’re already seeing stuff, from Dems and Ron fucking Paul Libertarians, about how now that the GOP is in charge we can look for new wars.

Also, Obama has been fucking with our allies so we are totally not-trusted on the world stage. Case in point.

Lawyers for the Obama administration compared Israel’s control of Jerusalem to Russian claims over the Ukrainian territory of Crimea during oral arguments this week before the Supreme Court in a case concerning the rights of U.S. citizens to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on their passports.

 

He’ll work harder at stopping Israel than he ever did with Tsar Putin I expanding his empire.

Israel, being the only liberal democracy/republic outside EUnuchstan or North America, can never be forgiven for that.

 

Last, I think this is going to be huge.

They gave the highways Teh Peepul paid for to a private company to make money.

When the 95 Express Lanes open, all drivers will need an E-ZPass or an E-ZPass® FlexSM to travel on the lanes. Carpools with three or more people can travel toll-free on the Express Lanes with an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode.

 

So the HOV lanes in the greater DC metropolitan area were HOV-3 during rush hour and open to all otherwise.

But now car-pools will need to pay for EZ-Pass (which ain’t free even if they don’t have to pay to use the lanes),  They also have made it so hybrids no longer get to use the HOV lanes for free.

More.

The 95 Express Lanes rules of the road will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Dynamic pricing based on real-time traffic conditions manages the demand for the lanes, keeping the Express Lanes moving

 

So now you have to pay to use them off-peak and notice the part about “dynamic pricing”, they’ll arbitrarily change the cost depending on traffic. So if there’s an accident blocking 95 at midnight, you’ll have to pay rush-hour prices to get around on the HOV-lanes.

And since it’s a private company bribing elected officials, they can be very slimy.

How slimy?

So Joe was stunned when he got a staggering $17,000 fine for $36 in unpaid tolls. He tried to resolve the problem directly with Transurban, which manages the lanes for Virginia. But Joe could not get any resolution from the company, and facing a looming court date…

“The thing that frustrates me the most is they don’t care,” Joe said, referring to Transurban. “They aren’t trying to resolve this. They are trying to get $17,000 for [$36] in tolls they didn’t collect.”

All of Joe’s whopping $17,000 fines come from a month-long period in spring 2013 when his E-ZPass transponder wasn’t being read properly….

 

Expand this by many thousands and you’ll have a lot of pissed off people. And that’s going to be huge.

Why huge? Because he’s fucking with gov’t workers, You know, important people.

Sure they like screwing the assholes in fly-over country, but this is messing with bureaucrats with a huge sense of entitlement and an inflated sense of their own worth.

It would be hilarious if a revolution started because of that.

And since we’re in this particular end of civilization, that’s about what I’d expect.

So what did last night change? Nothing federally but a shitload locally. All those GOP governors are not going to so easily implement the federal govt’s anti-Constitutional power grabs.

 

Speaking of which, AZ passed their “We ain’t enforcing unConstitutional laws by the feds” proposition.

Viva La Revolucion!
