It’s either make a post or let the spammers take over. I can’t delete comments from any posts but my own, DPUD might have let me post here but he’s not fucking stupid.

So some stuff that’s happening.

First, if the 2016 GOP race boils down to Jeb Bush V Mitt Romney, we be boned harder and put away wetter.

 

Oliver Willis saying something stupid.  If I cared enough about him I’d have a macro for that.

He said something about how Muslims are the peaceful ones because Crusades.

I have never understood how people can whine for and allow Muslims to whine about the Crusades and not point and laugh.

The Muslims invaded the Holy Lands so the Christians replied, the Muslims won (the Temple Mount is now a mosque for instance).

So in other words, Muslims started a conflict, won it and now they’re whining about it.

Fuck em.

This is high-larious with a capital ENDY.

So as Obama has been ignoring Christians being hung, beheaded, crucified, tortured, enslaved and chased from their homes by ISIS, who is helping them?

Hezbollah is believed to be arming Christian groups affiliated with the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) in villages east of Saida under the pretext of thwarting an Islamic State (ISIS) threat i

Fucking Hezbollah is treating Christians better than the US.

Anybody who disputes that things are funny and endy out there should re-read that sentence.

 

Speaking of Hezbollah, they’re showing Jihad Envy.

Comparing Hezbollah to Isis.

As the data show, ISIS is believed to have more fighters than Hezbollah, and to enjoy more abundant finances. This is in part a result of the vast territory it controls – perhaps 10 times as much as Hezbollah does – in which over half a dozen lucrative oil fields are at its disposal.

There’s a chart, it’s interesting.

 

Catalonia independence is chugging along.

The president of Spain’s powerful northeastern region of Catalonia on Saturday formally called an independence referendum,

If that goes through, look for the Basque to do the same.  Spain isn’t quite the stable country it looks at first, Portugal already broke off, now they could lose more. That would be interesting as ‘Spain has a 3-sided civil war.

 

Last but not least, Tsar Putin I is warning EUnuchs on Ukraine.

Alexei Miller, head of Russia’s top natural gas producer Gazprom, has warned of possible disruptions of Russian gas flows to Europe via Ukraine next winter,…

His comments, aired on Saturday by Russian state-owned TV channel Rossiya-24, a day after European Commission-brokered gas talks in Berlin, may indicate Moscow and Kiev are far from completely resolving their differences over conditions for gas supplies to Ukraine.

Tsar Putin I is letting the EUnuchs know that the dust-up with Ukraine is going to affect EUnuchstan so they would be smart to help Imperial Russia in their doings with one of their rebellious provinces.

 

I keep forgetting about China’s war in the South China Sea, here we see Indonesia is getting upset with China.

That makes it Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Vietnam against China there. Should be interesting.

 

In global worming news, here we have Kate Upton in Antarctica and not an erect nipple to be seen.

Maybe Al Gore was right.

The old question, is Obama’s fecklessness maliciousness or incompetence?

Me? I figure on domestic issues it’s maliciousness, in international affairs he’s far too ignorant for it to be anything but incompetence.

 

As if to just disprove my point, this new tack  is maliciousness,

Obama Administration Threatens Israel Over Criticism of Kerry’s Peace Deal

But…that’s not really foreign policy, that’s about being pissed off someone is pointing out his and J Effin Kerry’s incompetent ignorance.

 

Via our second favorite weasels, Zippers, his ain’t new, Global Warmmongers know all about flaming irony.

Thousands gather at Rabin Square to call for return to dialog, but disperse early as Gaza rocket-fire resumes

 

Nice touch.

Well this is new.

As European diplomats prepare to meet on July 29, signs are emerging that the European Union is finally moving towards the consensus needed for tougher measures against Russian President Vladimir Putin to punish his war against Ukraine.

 

Wait, I’d bet that’s old. Wishful thinking is very old. Why do I say that?

Ukraine has, so far, continued to send gas to EU member states through the pipelines that cross its territory.

 

That’s why. What happens when Tsar Putin I raises prices to pay for the sanctions?

Veeshir laughs, that’s what. I’m kind of  a dick though.

Via Paco, an old event in a new light.

people's cube haha

Everything old is new again.

 

This site is new to me.

It’s a pretty cool site that’s sort of artsy-fartsy in a millenial sort of way, so I expected it to be reflexively lefty.

Not new is that I was wrong.

ka-ching border

 

They’re even on the side of civilization against the new barbarians. I did not expect that. As I saw the top of that post I was expecting exactly the opposite reaction.

Also not new? Driving up the hit count via hotassery.

Eminently Updatable

Posted: July 25, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, Obama's Fault

I have some stuff to do later so I’ll probably/possibly update this post, but I have one thing to say.

Whenever someone compares how Ronnie Raygun handled the last time the Russians shot down a commercial airliner to how Obama has (not) handled this time, all Obama’s defenders keep saying, “Reagan didn’t speak for 5 days!!!!!!!!!!

 

Flight 17 was shot down 11 8 days ago and Obama still has not said or done shit.

So what did Obama say about this act 5 days after Tsar Putin I’s Cossacks shot down a plane? I don’t feel like checking but I have a feeling it involved golf and fundraising.

I checked and here’s his statement.

Obviously, we’re all heartbroken by what’s happened.  And this is an opportunity for me to extend on behalf of all the American people our deepest condolences over the loss of family and friends; to express our solidarity with the people of the Netherlands, with whom we’ve been friends and had the deepest ties for centuries; and to assure the Dutch people that we will work with them to make sure that loved ones are recovered, that a proper investigation is conducted, and that ultimately justice is done.

Bring who to justice?  How?

And what was he doing?

The President arrives Seattle, Washington
Local Event Time:

3:15 PM

Boeing Field International Airport
Open to pre-credentialed media
8:05 pm
The President attends a DNC event
Local Event Time:

5:05 PM

Private Residence – Seattle
Print Pool
9:00 pm
The President attends a Senate Majority PAC roundtable
Local Event Time:

6:00 PM

Private Residence – Bellevue
Closed Press

So fundraising, maybe he practiced his putz on the flight to Seattle.

To the White House folks who are wondering who to punish for this, notice the name. It’s Veeshir. Make sure you spell my name right on my IRS audit.

 

Important Upton Below The Fold!!!!!!!

(more…)

As I’ve already stated, nobody’s hindsight is 20/20 except mine and intelligent people’s*.

I’m not trying to pick on Glenn Beck, I’m just using him because that’s the link I had open.

It could have been a bunch of other people who you are probably reading too. Or rather, instead of reading here.

I’ve been seeing people say we should never have gone into Iraq.

 

No.

Longer version below the fold.

Important Upton!!!!!! Below the Fold!!!!! Via the Jawas!!!!!!!

Ace links the Wash Post so I don’t have to.

The semiautonomous Kurdish government said its pesh merga forces took control of the Kurdish city of Kirkuk in northern Iraq, after Iraqi security forces there fled rather than fight.

 

Okay, now I know he’s not trying to do this, but Obama’s foreign policy is working wonders in the Dar al Islam and keeping jihadis away from the Dar al Harb.

He’s made it so the Dar al Islam is basically a dog’s breakfast of jihadis killing each other. That’s all about teh funny.

Now we have the Kurds saying, “Screw it.” and creating Kurdistan.

Good for them. The next POTUS, assuming a bare minimum of competence and the desire and ability to rein in the State Dept (I know), will have a decent ally in the middle east.

 

Bush’ strategery was to fight jihadis in the Dar al Islam, it might have worked if we didn’t have feckless leaders.

Obama’s unintentional strategery is very Roman, keeping the barbarians fighting each other and leaving us alone.

It sucks that we lost so many good men using the previous strategy.

For now, it’s working out pretty well.

In the future, of course, the world is going to go explode.

The only ray of sunshine is that, as with economics, while we might be screwed, the rest of the world is exponentially more screwed.

So long as we can keep the Navy working we should be okay until we get our shit together.

Speaking of which, fuck Canada. They are the luckiest country in the dam world, they get protected by us and all they have to do is act smug and superior.

At least they’ll be screwed by the coming ice age, so we have that hilarity to look forward to.

A Do Over?

Posted: March 18, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, PEBKAC, Random Crap

Romney

That’s full of obvious stuff, he doesn’t mention Obama’s hostility to democrats the world over, but the rest is pretty blatantly, “Well duh.”

A large part of the answer is our leader’s terrible timing. In virtually every foreign-affairs crisis we have faced these past five years, there was a point when America had good choices and good options

 

So why do Romney and our fine establishment assholes in the GOP keep telling us “Mitt was right” and stuff like this?

Able leaders anticipate events, prepare for them, and act in time to shape them. My career in business and politics has exposed me to scores of people in leadership positions, only a few of whom actually have these qualities.

Romney’s trying to give America a Do-Over. We should have elected him in 2012 so he’s going to magnanimously give us a chance for a  do-over.

I have a different two work phrase for that idea:

Fuck That.

Below the fold, some stuff that’s necessary in these troubling times (more…)

Remember that building with apartments full of single Somali men, a mosque and a halal grocery that blew up that was demolished before any investigation but we were assured it was not terrorism?

The authorities said it was a gas leak but the gas company said, “Ummmm, no.”

So now, via Gates of Vienna doing their own investigation we see this.

The EUnuchs have this report

imposing certain specific restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities associated with Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida network and the Taliban

With this guy in the list

Jama, Garad (a.k.a. Nor, Garad K.) (a.k.a. Wasrsame, Fartune Ahmed, 2100, Bloomington Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Eh, so it’s EUnuchs, why did they think that

U.S. Treasury lists terror associates

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) — The White House and U.S. Department of Treasury on Wednesday released additions to the list identifying individuals, organizations and businesses with links to terrorist organizations.

We told them he was involved in terrorism.

Guess what else he does?

According to the MN Secretary of State website, Garad Nor is recorded as a “Registered Agent” of Wadani Properties, the company that owned and managed the apartments of the Cedar-Riverside building located at 510 and 512 Cedar Ave South that exploded and burned on January 1. In some reports, Garad Nor himself as listed as the owner. (links in original V)

The more I see on this the more likely it appears to me that the authorities think that it was a work accident.

A building at least managed, if not owned, by a guy the US gov’t claims is affiliated with al Quaeda and/or the Taliban (I’d say just al Quaeda, the Taliban is kind of racist) mysteriously blows up and yet, they immediately said, “No terrorism” and demolished  it before they could investigate.

Geez, and that’s why the only people afraid of Obama are American citizens.

I know lots of people don’t like Gates of Vienna, but what I’ve quoted is them reporting what they’ve found on official websites.

There are a lot of data points that seem to lead to the conclusion that our fine governmental and journalistic betters believe it’s a work accident.

Some pics of terrorists below the fold. (more…)
