Casting the ‘nets today I see a bunch of links that need pictures, so let’s start with that.
The GOP’s rebranding attempts illustrated.
Obama is just like Bush only wimpier!
Obama’s threatening tweet to the Norks the other day. He mentions B-52s with this pic (in a threatening tweet)
A picture from October,2001.
Dude threatened the Norks via twitter, that cannot be ridiculed enough, while copying an intertubes’ forward.
So Obama is trying to pretend he doesn’t hate Isreal. Hmmmm, I wonder how that’s going?
Standing in for the Arafish….Barack Obama!
Enough of the illustrated posts, now just some chit I saw.
Hezbollah, not content with just starting wars with Israel, are getting Syria to attack Lebanon as well, and the Lebanese are finally figuring it out.
Unlike Arsal, there is no LAF presence in Hermel, as the region has Hezbollah’s trained gunmen to defend it. Hezbollah’s gunmen have been for months involved in fighting with the Syrian rebels groups that allegedly threaten Shiites in villages and towns inside Syria, but close to the Lebanese border.
I have very little sympathy for them, they knew what Palestinian terrorists do from the 70s civil war, but they let their Jew-hatred blind them to that.
Via Doug Ross, other people are noticing that our oh so brave media types are afraid of Mexican cartels.
Violence along the southern border has gotten so out of control that both Mexican and American journalists have stopped reporting it out of fear that drug cartels will retaliate against them and their families.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand, but these assholes preen about how ‘brave’ they are as they bash people who won’t kill them without even noting that they’re afraid of the ones who will. It’s just like CNN (and others who will never admit it) lying for Saddam.Recall Foxnews left Iraq with no explanation, but they’re the evil ones. They should have said why they left, because they refused to lie for a murderous dictator unlike their enlightened brethren in Minitrue.
Now I have to wonder if Obama’s threatened them too or if they just like sucking his dick? I figure a little from column A and a little from column B.
Speaking of lying for murdering assholes, Benghazi!
Catherine Herridge, longtime reporter for Fox News, received Accuracy in Media’s Reed Irvine Award for investigative reporting on that scandal. The White House is desperately trying to put a lid on the whole thing, hoping that no one is compelled to testify as to whether it is true, as alleged, that the president, in the midst of his re-election campaign, watched the four Americans die and then went to bed.
They have to protect their Teleprompter Jesus after all and those dim folks in flyover country might get the wrong (correct) idea about Obama.
What bothers me the most about that is that in other countries, murderous thugs have to intimidate the media.
Guillermo Zuloaga, the owner of Globovision, the sole television network in Venezuela critical of the Chavista regime, has said that he was coerced into selling the station by the government. As the Wall Street Journal reports, the sale represents a serious blow to what little media freedom remains in the country:
Here in America, they do it for the cum they swallow.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Palestinian terrorists!
Palestinian protesters rallied today in Ramallah today before Obama’s visit to the West Bank.
The protesters shouted, “We want RPGs, not collaboration with the CIA.”
You and me both, you and me both.
Via Broken Patriot we see the next batch of Obamacare waivers.
“Union leaders say many of the law’s requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive.” (“Some Unions Grow Wary Of Health Law They Backed,” The Wall Street Journal, 1/30/13)
There are more examples, with links, at that link.
Listen, Obama needs to reward vote-frauders and donors, if you want a waiver you have to pay for it. Justice isn’t cheap in Obama’s America.
So the EUnuchs have figured out their bailout “plan” is not good. So what’s a good leftist to do when he discovers his error?
“In the present situation, I think that there is definitely a systemic risk, and I think that the unrest of the last couple of days has proven this unfortunately,” he told reporters.
He added mistakes were made, but the basic idea is sound:
What they always do, keep going anyway. Cuz it’s “fair” or something. Who knows?
Cuomo notices his gun ban law is stupid and requires things that do not exist and doesn’t exempt police so he’s going to try to ‘fix’ it.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office is working on amendments to clarify the newly passed gun-control law, following complaints that it did not explicitly exempt police officers from a ban on high-capacity magazines….
The only pistols allowed are larger ones cuz they have low-capacity mags, like the 1911, compact .45s and Wildeys, while also making the .50 Beowulf being one of the few rifles that comply (7-round mags, no bayonet mount, only the pistol grip makes it evil), that’s fucking funny.
Related, NY boycott up to 137.
Wow, this one is all over the place today, no structure, but we’ll still end on Teh Funny.
First, FrnakJ’s article that takes Obama’s and Boehner’s comments about how we don’t have to worry about the deficit, just run the budget on credit and we can cancel taxation.
A mere $85 billion cut has caused all this agony, yet the federal deficit has been over $1 trillion for each of the past four years. Maybe it’s time to admit we’ll never stop running huge deficits. The majority of our spending comes from entitlements, and we can’t cut those because people are, by definition, “entitled” to them. That means it doesn’t matter what math and reason say, we have to continue to pay for them. Thus an increased national debt each year is inevitable. But so what?
I don’t know if it would work, but I’m fer it. Why should just the people who get money from the gov’t get to avoid taxes?
Scott Ott at Scrappleface gets off another good one.
President Obama Friday pressed Congress to spend $2 billion on his dream to eliminate hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of jobs in the petroleum industry. However, he acknowledged that federal research on such job-killing will cost much more, and unfortunately, many oil industry workers could remain employed for years to come.
Not sure if either of those are satire, if I saw them in Mother Jones I would just smile and nod, but these two usually intend to be funny.
That’s the essence of good satire.
Which gives me an idea, I would love to see FrnakJ change his pseudonym and get a job for Mother Jones just to see how many articles he could get in before they realize he’s joking.
I figure he’ll last long enough to get a pretty good pension.
