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…)

The secret-policeman-dictator in Venezuela is threatening CNN for their coverage of the way he’s murdering ‘his’ people.

I only see about one article a day, and not many of them are really all that hard-hitting. They do note that a beauty queen was killed but it’s a video link which I won’t watch, but I’d bet they don’t actually blame the secret-policeman-dictator, but that’s just just my innate mistrust of Minitrue outlets when reporting on anti-American, murderous, commie dictators.

Here’s CNN explaining shit and stuff.

Major social and economic problems have fueled the protests. But as the demonstrations gained steam, officials have pointed fingers at other factors and accused the United States of plotting to destabilize the government.

Sure they say they’re after freedom and stuff, but the benevolent rulers are blaming the US. It’s just a “he said/they were shot resisting arrest” sort of thing.

Some blame Venezuela’s government, led by President Nicolas Maduro, for those problems. Maduro and other officials blame the opposition for the security and economic problems.

The bitches wuz askin fer it?

The protests are the largest Maduro has faced in his 11 months in power.

Yeah, the biggest he’s faced in less than a year in office. Ummm, how many others were there? Where there any others? They don’t say.

(Maduro) has called opposition members fascists and compared them to an infection that needs to be cured.

You gotta love the way they just sort of slide past the secret-p0liceman-dictator saying he’s going to kill them all. You kill what causes infection, right? And everybody knows fascists are to be killed.

Eh, probably all them Nazis who split for South America after they lost the war.

After that, it’s more of the “he said/they deserve to be killed”  stuff with the occasional attempt at balance. They noted that Chavez ” otherwise outlasted the protests and repeatedly won re-election.” but they never seem to mention any of the questions about exactly how he won those elections. You know, via intimidation, murder and outright fraud. Sort of like a Chicago election except with more murdering instead of just knee-capping and dead pets.

Is CNN even covering it on TV? I only flip by them and maybe pause for a few seconds to see what Dem talking point/Christie bullshit they’re pushing, so I can’t tell, I only know what’s on their website, and it appears to be about one article a day.

One thing, the “deal” in Ukraine is bullshit. They’ll have to do it all over again when Putin’s Tsarling steals the election, if he even holds one in December as promised. An election in  10 months as promised by a murderous Tsarling?

Yeah, I’m sure he’s getting right on that.

Setting an election for 10 months means one of two things.

There will be no election, either because the Tsarling needs the time to make sure he’s prepared for the upcoming protests or there will be no election because of some war or other.

or

The Tsarling is going to get Tsar Putin I’s help to fix the election and needs the time to get his ballots in a row and bribe somebody like St. Jimmeh to come and certify it as clean and also needs the time to get all his tanks in a row for the coming protests.

Poor bastids, they don’t stand a chance and they can expect absolutely no help from Obama except another STRONGLY WORDED STATEMENT with a plea to both sides (killer and killee) to relax and a plea from Kerry to stop burning stuff because of Global Worming.

Blog needs hotassery. Nay, the world needs hotassery. (more…)

Yeah, I watch Wheel of Fortune every now and then.

Above the post update!

I forgot the part that made me think of that title.

Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.

Well, we passed that stage a long time ago for anybody noticing reality, this guy actually had the lack of sense to write this.

The White House has politicized its signature policy.

Seriously? They just politicized it? Fool.

Wit

I’ve always been in favor of freedom of expression, but lately I’ve become a free-speech absolutist. It takes all sorts to make a world and I’ve met a lot of them over the years, and I can stand pretty much anything anyone says about anything — until someone says to me, “You can’t say that.” At which point my inclination is to punch his lights out. I do this not just because I’m a violent psychopath with a hair-trigger temper, but to make the important point that in societies where you’re not free to speak your mind — to argue and debate — the only way to express disagreement is through violence.

Eggs-fucking-zactly. Steyn usually gets it just right.

Following numerous reports of improper arrests and firearm seizures throughout California, Roseville-based gun rights group The Calguns Foundation has issued a new warning to gun owners in the Golden State.

“Gun confiscation efforts pushed by Attorney General Kamala Harris have apparently led to unconstitutional arrests of regular, non-prohibited gun owners as well as the seizure of their firearms and ammunition,”

Registration always leads to confiscation, but you’d know that if you ever read this blog.

Somebody’s Watching Me

Posted: January 31, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, Random Crap

The plant in front of my porch always has flowers, they’re usually kind of nice, they look like paper roses.

The other night this one creeped me out the whole night as I tried to read.

PLANTFACE

I kept expecting it to climb through like some desert El Seed.

And since I’m putting pics into the post, some art.

Update, watch that gif while you’re playing the song, it’s hypnotic.

So as Kerry and Obama are sucking Iranian dicks, they’re laughing at us.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned Thursday that he was facing domestic opposition to a landmark nuclear deal with major powers that is to go into effect next week.

They’re not going to make any deal of course, but Kerry and Obama are idiots so they don’t realize that (I hope, it’s worse if they do).

It’s not funny  at all (except for Iranians), but it is kind of funny. The Iranians are worried about public opinion while the leaders of what used to be a Constitutional Republic are not.

Speaking of Obama and Kerry being clueless idiots.

(Israeli V) Diplomatic officials also said: “Kerry visits here a lot, but he does not display any understanding of what is happening here. The U.S. plans are superficial and not serious. ,,,. It seems that Kerry is just not in touch with reality. He is not an expert, to say the least, on the roots of the conflict, he does not know how to create real solutions and does not even demonstrate proficiency in reading maps that are presented to him.”

Bwahahahahhahahahahhaa. But wait, there’s still more!

“The conduct of the U.S. secretary of state is obsessive. …Kerry seems to think his path to the White House is via the signing of a Middle East peace agreement.”

Kerry, still fucking that chicken. I have to admit, I think the next election will be as funny as the 2008 one. Biden and Kerry alone will make it  the “No, I’m more stupider!!!” election.

But where’s the endy? you ask.

Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] will ask more of Israel, such as a [settlement construction] freeze or another prisoner release, and these demands will be backed by Kerry and turned into an American demand, accompanied by a threat.

Whoop, there it is.

This one is a little more subtle in its humor.

President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has sent condolences to President of the State of Israel Shimon Peres over death of former Prime Minister of the State of Israel Ariel Sharon.

“I have been deeply saddened by the news of the death of former Prime Minister of the State of Israel, prominent statesman and political figure Ariel Sharon.

I share your grief over this heavy loss. On behalf of myself and the people of Azerbaijan, I express my deepest condolences to you, family, and relatives of Ariel Sharon, and to the people of Israel,” …

Why is that funny? According to Wikipedia, Azerbaijan is 93% Muslim and they’re nicer to Israel and respectful of Sharon than the US.

C’mon, that’s pretty darn funny. I hope American Jews are happy with their votes for Obama.

This one isn’t that funny, but it is.

There isn’t much the Palestinian people haven’t suffered. But the use of enforced starvation against them by the …refugee camp breaks new ground in cruelty.

Yawn, Lebanese media blaming Israel for something stupid, So why is that funny and endy? Cuz those ellipses took this out, “Syrian dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad at the Yarmouk.” They’re blaming it on Syrians, not the Joooooooooooooooooos!!!!! and it’s the real kind of “starving” not the Paliwood kind.

This one has me weirded out.

…Tie Rack, the global chain of stores that sells — yes — ties recently announced it would shut all of its Great Britain stores..,

Seriously, my perception of the Brits is that they’d take the time to dress properly as the tidal waves are washing across London and the aliens are setting up huge people-cooking pots in the Scottish Highlands. Like Shaun of the Dead’s mother and step-father. Weird. Is that a sign of the end of civilization on that island?

Closer to home, this isn’t funny at all, it’s mostly just endy.

I wrote something about Mexican people organizing militias to fight against the Obama-sponsored cartels and how the people weren’t going to like it when the gov’t came back in but I can’t find it, that is the update to that post.

that farmers sided with the vigilantes to block the soldiers on a road leading into the town. The townspeople reportedly begged the soldiers to leave.

Can’t have Teh Peepul defend themselves, that’s what gov’t is for so they must be disarmed.

And if their gov’t isn’t willing or able to  defend them due to being afraid to be killed and/or bought off? Well, that’s the price Obama is willing to make them pay rather than do something about it other than sell guns to cartels.

As Minitrue is almost done with their first riveting week of wall-to-wall Bridgegate coverage.

Boned again, naturally.

Now let’s get to some gov’t intimidation in a different corrupt country, America.

The Connecticut State Police has contacted citizen reporter and gun rights blogger Mike Vanderboegh in Alabama, indicating they wish to question him about sending an empty gun magazine to the Connecticut governor.

Fuck you. No, really. Fuck you. That’s the most polite response I can think of to that sort of crap. It was obviously not a threat but this fucking totalitarian asshole uses the threat of death (cops carry guns) in the face of non-violent, free-speech. Fuck you.

Related, This is my very favorite kind of Larious: Freaking High.

Seen at the ATF’s booth at SHOT.

molonlabemofo

Bwahahahaha.

Speaking of Bridgegate….I mean, BRIDGEGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, sometimes I just love Ann Coulter’s take.

I agree with MSNBC. I find it hard to believe that Gov. Chris Christie knew nothing about his staff’s plotting a massive traffic jam on the ramp to the George Washington Bridge for political retribution. On the other hand, I also find it hard to believe that Obama didn’t know his own IRS was auditing his political enemies.

But most of all, I find it hard to believe that MSNBC host Al Sharpton didn’t know Tawana Brawley was lying when she claimed to have been gang-raped by rogue cops on the Wappingers Falls, N.Y., police force.

Bwahahaha. Funny. Of course, what she’s talking about is darn endy, but you takes what you gets.

In more Heh news,

Historic subsidies propping up US wind energy ended on January 1 and Congress refused to renew them, despite supporters arguing that the aid has made renewable power cheaper than coal.

No you stupid commie idiots, it doesn’t make it cheaper than coal, it makes it more expensive than it should be as the gov’t siphons off money from me, let’s much of it stick to their hands, then disburses it to people who then go bankrupt.

It’s funny they’re that stupid, it’s not at all funny that stupidity is believed by all of our ‘elite’ and not a one of them seem to realize that if something actually worked you wouldn”t need to subsidize it for the last 50 years.

We’ll end on a little optimism.

American society today is almost identical to September 10th, 2001, before the terrorist attack that took down the World Trade Center towers….

Just as the WTC was attacked in 1993, but survived long enough for the forces of terrorism to regroup and return with a greater, more elaborate plan, the citizens of the United States were attacked by its government on October 3, 2008 when it passed the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP),

Yup. That wasn’t actually the very beginning, but it was pretty bad as we found out that Bush’ peeps actually threatened banks into taking money.  More from our optimist.

the government has empowered the IRS, militarized police departments, changed the definition of “enemies” to include returning veterans; Christians; believers in the Constitution; those preparing to survive the obvious next attack; and many others. It has stacked the military with commanders who understand their role as defending the U.S. Government, not necessarily the people or the states of the United States.

Eh, so far just standard noticing the endy, but he does get to the optimism

They (Us Americans V) know that their government hates them, that it considers them stupid and weak, as other terrorists have done in the past. Americans know that their rights are being violated; that the Constitution cannot stop those in power from implementing any sort of plan they wish; that plans are being made by the government to handle civil unrest; that the government has been snooping into their e-mails and phone calls (compiling an enemies list?).

You gotta love his “faith in Americans, I’m more pessimistic, I don’t think they have a clue. I think they’ll figure it out when it’s far too late.

The rest of it is pretty depressingly accurate though. I wouldn’t read it unless you have a (un)healthy supply of your favorite intoxicant.

I mentioned Shaun of the Dead, you know what that means, zombie pics. (more…)

First, the odd.

This is very odd. I thought all of America was a Constitution Zone, I didn’t realize we had Constitution-free zones.

District Judge Edward Korman, a US federal judge, has reaffirmed an Obama administration policy granting officials the authority to search Americans’ laptops, citing a controversial premise that makes citizens within 100 miles of the border eligible for a police check.

So there’s a 100 mile area along the border where the Constitution does not apply.

How the fuck does a federal judge who is supposed to decide on the Constitutionality of stuff say that the Constitution does not apply in America?

I know it’s not new, but it pisses me off every fucking time. If more Americans knew about it (Minitrue isn’t covering it until we have a GOP pres) I think there’d be some problems. But then, I’m an eternal optimist.

This is very odd, I’m praising sports writers.

Another year, another Good On Ya Baseball Hall of Fame voters.

 

The cheating sacks of shit like Sosa, McGwire, Bonds and the rest of the steroid crew did not make the cut.

I do think McGriff should make it, the crime dog was a good player, but the steroid freaks should not.

 

This is only odd for those who don’t pay attention. They’re talking about how there are good and bad jihadis in Syria.

That idea, of course, is why the middle east sucks so badly. Jordan thinks all jihadis suck so they don’t have the problems Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and the rest have.

A partial list of jihadis in Syria.

Barish listed the participants as the following: “the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, including the Farouq Brigade, the Union of the Syrian Clans, 11 other factions, and defected fighters from other brigades; the Islamic Front, with the Ahrar al-Sham in Raqqa, Maskana, and Manbaj, Souqour al-Sham, and al-Tawhid, which has a significant presence in Aleppo; the Jihadis’ Army; and the Nour al-Din Zinki Brigade.”

…large groups of the Islamic Front, Ahrar al-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra, and some FSA brigades are participating in Raqqa battles against ISIS.

It’s a dogs’ breakfast of jihadi assholes all fighting like scorpions in a bottle.

I will say, that ISIS is an even funnier acronym than the MILFs in the Philippines.

First, Isis is a pagan god. I thought jihadis kill people who worship pagan gods.

Second, it’s the name of Archer’s spy group.  I look forward to KAOS (Kill All Onbelievers Squad)  popping up next.

Well, that’s the odd. Let’s get to the sod.  In honor of CO, some grass below the fold. (more…)

Confusion Says

Posted: January 3, 2014 by veeshir in Exploding things, Hotassery, Random Crap

Geez, it’s pretty fucking endy but mostly just really, really confused and confusing out there.

Darrell Issa is called “Conservative of the Year” and yet, he hasn’t had his turn as Emmanuel Goldstein. Confusing.

Sharyl Attkisson has what she says is a blog (but you can’t link any posts) and notes the 10 stories that should make the news in 2014, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Debt and spending, gov’t spying on US citizens, including journalists (she doesn’t mention outright intimidation), the absolute secrecy and lack of transparency and media access by Obama (she doesn’t talk about the tongue baths called “press conferences”), the expansion of terrorism, the scam that is “Green Science” (which is neither), border violins with Mexican gangs crossing over and the crumbling infrastructure that Obama talks about but never fixes.

 

So why is that confusing? Because those were mostly stories that should have been covered in 2009, 2010,2011,2012, and 2013. What makes 2014 any different?

Related, I’m confused about this. Most Americans agree with me that the next 40 years are not going to be pretty.

So should I be happy because I’m finally with the majority or happy because the majority is always wrong?

The War on (Some) Terror is getting confusing.

The alternative to getting back to the [peace] talks is the potential of chaos,” Kerry said. “Does Israel want a third Intifada?”

Are we on the other side now? I mean, during Bush he pissed me off because terror against Israel was why Spoons started writing “War on (Some) Terror” but now we’re negotiating for them? Obama does like to fight both sides of any war.

The Norks are confusing again. We’re supposed to be afraid of their nukes hitting California but they can’t make a ski-lift, they have to have the murderous commies in China smuggle one in (I assume, the article claims nobody know how a fucking ski-lift made it into the country.)

An  illustration of the confusion of GOP “leadership”.

illegal-immigrants

 

This one is a two-fer.

I’m confused that people have the balls to act confused at this.

More than 4.7 million Americans had their health insurance canceled …just two million Americans have signed up for Obamacare

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!!!/gomerpyle.

Another thing that has me confused.

Is this the greatest idea of the decade or the worst?

Oliva has been kicking around the idea of starting a fast draw league for years but had to wait until this month to get a firearms instruction certificate needed to handle “Simunition,” the plastic-tipped, paint-filled training ammunition to be used by fast draw’s gunslingers.

 

You draw against someone else in some protective gear, not too much or you can’t quick draw.

I’m leaning toward worst because the guy in charge is:

Musician, Songwriter, Arranger, Promoter, Artist Manager, Expert Bounty Hunter”… is most noted for founding “Nevada Pigeon Control, a humane society…

He’s no Gene Hackman, that’s for sure.

You’ve been good, you get some Old West hotassery.

I’ll get all bi-partisany under the fold!!!! (more…)
