Strong Horse

(ISIS), for instance, claimed a mortar attack against a base belonging to the al-Qassam Brigades, the military branch of Hamas, in Khan Yunis, as well as a bombing in front of a security forces building in Gaza….

ISIS are a bunch of mad dogs who attack all and sundry and now they’re attacking Hamas’ armed wing. Which “armed wing” is approximately, all of them (+/- 0%).

Weak Horse

In retaliation, Hamas arrested a dozen sympathizers.

Oh man, ISIS is smacking Hamas around and making them look like chumps. They “arrested” them? Ooooh, I bet that has ISIS all scared and stuff. Or… they’re going to use their time in some Pali prison to recruit more mad dogs. Either/or. (mostly the “Or” thing).

 

Nother weak horse

Until recently, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, with its formidable military, intelligence and social network power, was the jewel of Iran’s worldwide militias. But after the Syrian uprising in 2011 and Iran ordering Hezbollah to enter Syria to fight alongs

 

Hezbollah has jihad envy and it’s making me laugh. Mostly because I don’t live in Iraq or Syria.

And, of course, the current weakest horse

obama playing through

 

 

We be bone, but the rest of the world is boned even more, so we have that going for us.

Says every politician about the idiots who vote for them, also, says every unelected politician, also, our betters in Minitrue.

You know those “moderate” rebel groups in Syria?

Fighters from the Al-Nusra Front have gunned down dozens of residents of a Druze-populated village outside Idlib…

The worst part? They actually are relatively moderate compared to the Syrian forces, ISIS and Hezbollah. Or is that the funniest part? Eh either way, we’ll be arming them and conducting airstrikes on their behalf.

 

We’ve all seen Paul Ryan, who I once liked until he teamed with Romney and acted all establishment, channeling Pelosi.

By the way, TPA—it’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” Ryan said.

 

So what will we be seeing after our betters decide what’s best for us?

A big shit sandwich, with extra corn!

Discovered inside the huge tranche of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters.

As an aside, it’s kind of funny how the Wikileaks deal is turning out, first it released stuff we already knew (if “we” were paying any attention at all) like China and Saudi Arabia bribing our pols and stuff like that.

EUnuchstanian overlords obviously have not gotten the memo about how great Obamatrade is.

European MPs were due to vote on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership on Wednesday. But the vote had to be delayed because there were too many proposed amendments.

“It’s panic in parliament,” Yannick Jadot, a Green MEP from France, told AFP.

This bit from that EUnuchstanian article is what we expect from President Goldman Sachs.

Ministers have disagreed over a controversial dispute mechanism that some fear would allow big companies to bypass national courts to resolve disputes with investors.

Well duh. Crony capitalism, communism and fascism are inextricably linked in a steaming potpourri of screw you.

This part makes me laugh, and get really pissed off.  IOwn the world (I wish they’d fix it) links The Hill so I don’t have to.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is calling for a change to House rules to require the administration to make all trade deals publicly available for 60 days before they could be approved using fast-track authority.

Har-dee-har-har-har. Congresscritters can only read the bill in a secure room, Teh Peepul cannot even read the bill, and they expect us to believe that shit?

Forget saying, “I won’t cum in your mouth”, that’s saying, “I didn’t cum in your mouth” as you’re spitting it out.

 

The GOP is not going to make anybody in the IRS pay for being used as a political tool against Obama’s and the Establishment GOP’s enemies so Judicial Watch is basically tilting at windmills.

Judicial Watch announced that Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted a Judicial Watch request to issue an order requiring the IRS to provide answers by June 12, 2015, on the status of the Lois Lerner emails the IRS had previously declared lost

Yeah, and who’s going to enforce his ruling? The “Justice” Dept? Congress? The Tooth Fairy?

I’m all for tilting at windmills, but lately the windmills keep winning.

 

People have been saying that Obama is not like Reagan, and they’re right, but this makes me laugh.

US journalist Mark Dice has asked the people of San Diego to sign President Barack Obama’s “plan” to nuke Russia to “maintain America’s superiority.” The majority of beachgoers didn’t appear to get the joke, and signed the fake petition.

We all remember Reagan’s joke.

So in other words, Obama’s supporters are a Reagan joke.

That’s pretty funny.

 

 

In November 2011, I wrote, “Wait, that stuff is still going on?

So what was still going on three and a half years ago? Post in bold, links show it’s all still going on.

Syria is still killing people. Actually, that one is more nuanced than the rest, it’s pretty much a dog’s breakfast of everybody killing everybody there. Syrian Military, Isis, Hezbollah,  other

The Gaza death cult is still shooting rockets at Israel. Yup.

Fukushima is still going on. Yup.

Mexican cartels are still killing Intertubers. Yup, though most of those alive are “self-censoring”

Somali pirates are still pirating. The funny part being that after ships avoided the area, it seemed as if piracy went down, when ships went back, it went up. Surprising only fools and the willfully ignorant.

Armenia is still occupying and acting all aggressive on Kazakh Azerbaijani lands, totally without Russia’s help and encouragement (wink wink, nudge, nudge). This is a case of people who’ve hated each other for a long time hatin’ on each other and Russia is still involved.

Terrorists are still operating in the Sinai. Now it’s ISIS of course. Giving Hamas Jihad Envy.

North Korea is still working on nukes and threatening with said nukes. Yup.

Iran is still threatening all and sundry with nukes. Now with more aid from Obama! This poll makes me proud to be an American. Subhed

A new Zogby poll suggests that more and more Americans trust Israel more than Obama to get rid of the Iranian nuclear threat.

Quote

A large plurality of Americans prefer that the Obama administration take a more dovish approach to end the Iranian nuclear threat but at the same time back Israel’s bombing the Islamic Republic

 

EUnuchstan is still boned and still won’t even contemplate actually fixing anything. They keep talking “austerity”, which used to mean, “Living within your means” and now means, “Increasing taxes to pay for what you want.” Good luck with that.

On the lighter side, we might be looking at revolution in China. Yup.

 

Something not new, but the vid of the day

Crazy Russian guy lights himself on fire and jumps from 9 story building.

It lives up to its billing.

This liveleak vid is from the guy’s head-cam.  I cannot figure out how to embed it. I’m computerly challenged.

 

Added 30 seconds later because I forgot it:

Same H/T, my generally sour attitude today.

The second time is supposed to farce, but this is actually about the eleventyith time and it’s a comic tragedy that should be getting funnier, except it’s not.  Recall that Obama and co. declared “Peace for our time!!!!” and the Iranians said, “We never agreed to that.” and yet, people are still acting as if the Iranian nuke “deal” is an actual deal.

Inspection and access to non-nuclear and military sites will not be accepted by Iran.

The Iranians have been ridiculing the “negotiations” since they started in the early aughts and have only become more brazen as our fine political, intellectual, moral and social betters keep pretending the Iranians are honest parties.

In Reclaiming Our Lost Colony news, Andalusia!

At a two-day terrorism conference held in Madrid on April 23 and 24, Fernández Díaz said that at least 115 Spanish jihadists — including at least 15 women — are now known to have joined the Islamic State. He added that 14 jihadists had returned to Spain; nine of those are in prison and five remain free.

 

I bet a dollar there have been a few, unpublicized, terrorism conferences in Spain, except on the “supply” side of terrorism.

Who are we to deny them the 9th holiest site in Islam?

In a surprising twist, M’Shell Obama prevents terrorism!!!!!!!

Recall back in 2010, M’Shell took money from food stamps to pay for

Democrats who reluctantly slashed a food-stamp program to fund a state-aid bill may have to do so again to pay for a top priority of first lady Michelle Obama.

… is paid for by trimming the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as the food-stamp program.

 

In today’s exciting development some New Black Panther terrorists had a problem

This week the Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis admitted in court that they were planning to blow up a police station and murder St. Louis County Prosecutor BOb McCulloch… But they didn’t have enough money on their EBT card!

 

Okay, that’s pretty funny. Until you think about how we’re subsidizing terrorists with welfare.

 

The New Puritans, afraid someone, somewhere is having unapproved fun, have started the Salem witch trials a little west of Salem, only now they’re burning men.

In this exciting episode, some guy got drunk and then his girlfriend’s roommate jumped him and he was accused of “rape” and lost his witch trial. I can only assume his wang weighed less than a duck. But he’s fighting back

What differentiates the Amherst suit from others, though, is that it portrays Doe (supposed rapist V) as unable to give consent, and Jones (supposed rapee V) as the initiator and the sober party.

 

I wish him luck, but since he’s part of the patriarchy (his wang gives that away), and it’s in a double-bastion of New Puritanism (Massachusetts and a college!!), I figure he’s boned.

 

This is sorta funny but not really tragicomedy, but I’m linking it for one reason.  A bunch of lesbians got mad at each other and brawled in the streets.

When the groups arrived, members of one clique pulled knives. A girl from the other group had a bottle of drain cleaner.

One woman threw the sulfuric-acid substance all over the place — burning herself and five others

Why am I linking it? No pictures so I’m betting they’re not hot.

 

This is ts the Washington Free Beacon Section

Whose side is Obama on? That’s an easy one, who hates America the most in that region.

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood.

If only we could get Israel to start some anti-American rhetoric, maybe behead a few journalists then Obama might be on their side.

 

I know which side I’m on in China V Freedom, I wish I didn’t know which side Obama is on.

Original participants in China’s pro-democracy movement in 1989 are back in prison on the 26th anniversary of the government’s brutal suppression of those protests,

Anniversaries always get me in trouble too, but usually I just get the silent treatment and don’t get laid because I forget them, I’ve almost never been killed over one and I’ve only been imprisoned once (long story)

 

I’m not sure whose side I’m on in this one.

Al Qaeda and other Islamist terrorists pose a “high” threat of attacking the upcoming G-7 summit meeting in Germany,

That’s a poser.

 

Once again, I know whose side I’m on, it’s just hard to figure out how to do anything for the poor kid whose stuck in this utterly ludicrous yet utterly horrible (funny and endy!) situation.

‘Complicated': The transsexual partner of a former lesbian lover of a nine-year-old’s natural mother has been refused access to see the girl after a judge found that her life was complicated enough
The couple – known as Rachel and Helen – split up when she was three. Rachel, who was Alice’s natural mother, was sectioned with schizophrenia and Helen entered a relationship with Matthew, the man who has brought the case.

When he met Helen he was a woman having treatment to live as a man.

 

Jebus. That poor little girl has absolutely no chance at any sort of normal life.

 

I’m on (Used to be) Great Britain’s side, but then, I always root for the underdog. The 600 year history of the Royal Mail is coming to an end.

The UK government is to sell its remaining 30 percent stake in Royal Mail

Sure it’ll still be there, but it will not be owned by the government. How messed up is it that a socialist country is selling its stuff to private enterprise?

So socialism leads to libertarianism? That’s pretty darn funny.

This bit makes me laugh a little more.

The UK offloaded a 60 percent stake in Royal Mail in 2013, but attracted criticism for selling it too cheaply when shares soared following the sale.

Let me get this straight, a company run by a gov’t agency who cares not for profitability(it’s not their money) is sold to a private enterprise whose goal is to make money and the stock prices go up? The deuce you say!

 

As always, I’m on the side of science against Science!

In a major blow to environmental activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that the controversial drilling technique known as fracking has not caused any widespread impacts on drinking water,

Not that this will matter, notice they link the Wash Times. I’m gonna go out on a limb and bet that The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. do not give this much coverage. They are in the affirmation business, not the information business after all.

 

As always, I’m on the side of freedom against the current, Chicago-machine-politics ruling our nation.

In March of this year, the Obama administration removed the White House from FOIA requests. Also in March, a note on a FOIA request that wasn’t blacked out said, “We (agency workers) live in constant fear of upsetting the WH [White House].”

The agencies have a history of perverting the process in favor of leftists. In 2013, the federal government granted waivers on FOIA requests for greenies but not conservatives. Green groups received information for free 92% of the time while equivalent Conservative groups are not granted fee waivers 93% of the time.

Sonomabatch.

That also illustrates why I’m on Sharyl Attkisson’s side, she’s just about the only journalist in America.

 

The real poser of the day:

Nannarch nannarchor  Grannarch?Trailer Park Grandma Hillary

 

Paco helped me come up with that one.

Trick question, it’s both!!!

In Phony War news, Ukraine!

Poroshenko said the army successfully repelled the attack “of Russian soldiery” and had to use artillery to keep a town under Ukraine’s control. Poroshenko said they warned the European leaders that Minsk accords (cease fire with Russia, link by me V) were violated.

“The military must be ready as much for a renewal of an offensive by the enemy in the Donbas as they are for a full-scale invasion along the whole length of the border with Russia. We must be truly ready for this,” Poroshenko says, adding that at least 9,000 Russian soldiers are being operating in the Russian-controlled area.

 

Sure Russia is broke and their military has crappy, 20-year-old, commie crap, but Ukraine has the same problems and they haven’t received the upgrades from the tech Russia was sold by…stole from the US

 

Hezbollah has jihad envy so they’re attacking ISIS.

I have to admit, I wish they would join Obama’s semi-kinetic effort to degrade/annoy ISIS so we could perform airstrikes in support of one terrorist organization that’s killed plenty of Americans against another terrorist organization that’s killed fewer Americans.

I’ve been ignoring China, that’s not because they’ve stopped being all expansiony and bellicose but because I figure they’re not that far from using their military against someone. I’m trying to figure out who. Philippines? Japan? Vietnam? Us? Russia?

I’m mostly just hoping the Navy hasn’t allowed Obama to get rid of all their competent leaders as he’s so obviously doing to the Army and Marines.

 

Yesterday was day 756 since we discovered Obama was using the IRS to attack his political enemies and what’s Congress doing about it?  Not a blessed thing, but the Treasury Dept is on the job!!!!

While the TIGTA report will put the matter back in Congress’ hands, it’s uncertain whether it will arm lawmakers with enough new information to rejuvenate their stalled investigation into the scandal — or whether they’ll have the appetite to follow through on any new information that does emerge.

 

Yeah, about that, Congress will delay things until just before the next election so they can appear to be DOING SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So get ready to clap your fins and HONK YOUR HORNS!!!!!!

GOP Voter Device

GOP Voter Device

Don’t forget to get yours!

Speaking of our fine, Congressional, betters.

With a newly installed Republican majority that campaigned as fiscal conservatives one would expect big government Democrats to be howling in pain about all the “unfair budget cuts,…

One would be acting very stupidly to expect that.

but unfortunately big government Republicans are doing as much or more spending as would be expected from the Democrats.

I still feel embarrassed that I thought the GOP wanted to borrow a little under a $trillion and the Dems a little over when they were competing with the Dems to see who could spend the most.

And they are using the gimmicks and tricks they all campaigned against to continue the ruinous spending.

Why, it’s as if they think we’re idiots!

Listen, if you have to watch those feckless assholes to know what they’re doing, you haven’t been paying attention so doing so now is not going to help.

 

In  more Gov’t Being Responsive News(link added): DC!

The District of Columbia Police Department said on Monday it has not issued any gun-carry permit denials since a federal judge ruled the city’s requirement that applicants show a special need to carry a firearm unconstitutional.

You could take that to mean they are handing out permits. Well you could if you were gullible, stupid or willfully ignorant.

Conboy could not say whether any new applications would be approved or what would happen to those whose applications had been denied under the now defunct “good reason” clause.

“We’re awaiting further guidance from the Office of the Attorney General on other applications,” he said.

They will slow roll this and get away with it. Who is going to force them to follow any judge’s rulings? Obama’s “Justice” Dept? The DC police?

If you believe either of those two anti-freedom entities are going to enforce the Constitution,  I have some beach front property to sell you. Sure you can’t see the ocean from AZ, but you get plenty of sun and sand!

 

This one is pretty funny, mostly because I’m not a Baltimore resident or Baltimore Cop.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby plans to seek a protective order that would block the release of Freddie Gray’s autopsy report and other “sensitive” documents as she prosecutes the six police officers involved in his arrest….

The move is the latest effort by Mosby’s office to restrict information in the high-profile case. Her office has also sought a gag order to prevent participants from discussing the case in public, and has broken with a long-standing practice by not giving a copy of the autopsy report to Baltimore police.

She’s hiding evidence from the defense. Rules of discovery are being suspended because White Privilege!!!!!

I can’t tell if this defense attorney is stupid, ignoring reality or just trying to get a soundbite out there.

“It’s as if she wants to do everything to make sure our clients do not get a fair trial.”

The deuce you say!

 

This is the media!

thisisthe-media

Heh. Heh I say. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think enough people pay attention to Time to really affect anything, but that’s pretty funny.

 

I feel a little stupid, lately I’ve talked about hydraulic despotism and indentured servitude (don’t get me started on debtor’s prison) but I’ve been ignoring the comeback of guilds.

Mark Rippetoe: Should Personal Trainers and Coaches Be Licensed by the State? Occupational licensing is always a tool to protect the connected from competition by the unconnected. It’s justified in the name of protecting consumers, but it’s never demanded by consumers, but by members of the industry being protected.

Midieval Guildmasters would approve.

Medieval Guilds
The guilds were an important part of city and town life. Guilds were exclusive, regimented organizations;
created in part to preserve the rights and privileges of their members; and separate and distinct from the civic governments, but since the functions and purposes of guild and civic government overlapped, it was not always easy to tell them apart, especially since many well-to-do guildsmen were prominent in civic government.

Mustn’t forget the bribes from the guildmasters and the added power over people this gives to our elected officials.

Everything old is new and everything new is getting pretty dam old.

 

 

 

In Losing The Campaign News

Headline

Rand Paul just sacrificed his presidential campaign for his libertarian principles

For saying

The point I wanted to make is that we can still catch terrorists using the Constitution.”

Ummmmmmm, no.

He sacrificed his presidential campaign for saying that others apparently want the terrorist to win just to spite him, I’d say most Americans are against the NSA acting like the Stasi.

You do have to love Maverick (R-Media) helping them to attack him

Whether or not it was his prime motivation, as Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggest, Paul will earn a lot of money for his presidential campaign.

Asshole, when you agree with Dianne Feinstein (D-umber than a box of Boxers) on anything, you know you’re acting stupidly.

If he’s going to make money off his stance, wouldn’t that mean it’s sorta popular?

I mean, I know minitrue hates anything smelling of Tea Party… oh right.

 

In Losing the Gulf War II News you gotta love this headline from the number 2 minitrue outlet (We’re the Shit!)

While nobody was looking, the Islamic State launched a new, deadly offensive

 

Yeah, see, you might not have been looking. Obama was certainly not looking, but for anybody not a sucker of leftist dicktations, it was blatantly obvious that they weren’t going to just sit on the ground they’ve taken.

They’ve been marching across the whole middle east and particularly Syria/Iraq as Iraqi troops run away,they just took thousands of Humvees, plenty of Abrams tanks, American artillery and ammo for same and you idiots are surprised they went on an offensive?

That story is actually providing affirmation in the guise of providing information, ISIS is attacking but Obama could not have known!!!!!!!

 

In Losing One’s Mind news, this one from some CNN tool is hilarious,

i'm an idiot

I agree, being a lesbian trapped in a man’s body is cisnormative or heteronormative or whatever the hell I’m supposed to call it today(and very teenage male cisnormative), but that’s not what he meant.

He was meant that saying Bruce Caitlyn Kardash….Jenner in hisher its I’m Making Money Off Being a Freak costume is attractive is a bad thing.

Apparently, we need to celebrate hisher…its choice to be the freakiest of the Kardashian freakshow without assigning any normative…normal values to it.

Via Weasel Zippers, who usually see the endy but don’t always see the funny.

 

In Losing The Cold War News, I can’t believe I missed this one

Minority small business owners have the most to lose if the Obama administration’s labor regulators do away with the franchise business model, according to a new report.

 

No, not the utterly unfunny “World Ends, Women, Minorities Hardest Hit”.

But that Obama is trying to do away with franchises. WTF? He’s now trying to destroy every last small business owner in America.

Jebus, I wish someone would tell him we won the Cold War.

 

So what did we learn today?

Not a blessed thing, except I learned about another angle Obama is using to destroy America.
