In attempting to write about the Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice incidents, the apparent futility of conservative blogging has once again caused me overwhelming despair.

As it concerns the death-by-cop incidents, the post-factual nature of our political discourse becomes palpable. “Hands up, don’t shoot!” is an utter fabrication, exposed as a lie by overwhelming physical evidence and the preponderance of eye-witness testimony, such that no charges were brought by a grand jury against the officer.

There’s much more room for concern in the Garner and Rice cases, but the public backlash in these three cases seems inversely proportionate to the evidence of police wrongdoing. (How many of you are going to Google “Tamir Rice” now?) But the incident drawing the most ire, the Michael Brown shooting, is the one with the least genuine merit – nil by my reckoning.

Presented with the futility of attempting to dislodge an erroneous belief from the public consciousness, one recalls the many other instances of valiant but Sisyphean work by conservative and libertarian bloggers. Whether it is the exposure of the IRS criminality, or the Gosnell little abortion shop of horrors, or the Jonathan Gruber recordings, nothing seems to stick or matter. Obama’s even back to funding ACORN as health insurance navigators.

I will from time to time find cause to write, but for now I expect the sparseness of my motivation to continue. In a world where facts don’t matter, there’s little reason to discuss facts.

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

Above the post observational update!!!!!!

First, why is everybody talking about the Sony deal as a cyberterrorists when they threatened to kill Americans who went to theaters showing this?

I mean, it was bad when they went after Sony folks cyberterroristically, but then they changed to Hezbollah/IRA terrorism of just killing people. That’s not cyber, that’s terrorism.

Second, did I just see Charles Krauthammer say we needed to give the gov’t vast, sweeping powers and trust them and then, even crazier, Mara Liasson disputed that? Yes, yes I did. And so did you if you were watching the 6:30 panel (4:30 MT time).

I thought the Judge was going to blow his stack but he was far more calm than Charles’ statement deserved.

/update

Okay, that’s funny.

…caught her husband and twin cheating on her and followed them to a shopping centre using a mobile phone tracker.

She went to find husband Cheng, 30, who was completely naked in a car along with her sister.

Wait for it…..wait for it…..

they both jumped out of the car with not a thread of clothing.

But Ting saw her opportunity, jumped into the car and drove off

 

Via the only ‘stan that’s not actively trying to kill us, SondraKi.

Now, some funny endineness from Liberal Logic 101

This one is infuriatingly endy but kinda funny, in a horrific way.

That’s all about teh fucked up. Cuz it’s true.

Next, we have the next one.

Bingo, bango, bongo.

Although to be fair, lunatics don’t even have to get near a tea party event to be connected to the Tea Party (like that crazy loon who killed the conservative judge and shot the lefty gun-grabber in AZ).

Last, but not least in its endy funniness, is something that people as little as 30 years ago would think you were a loon for saying it would happen.

All three utterly unfunny because they’re true.

Bwahahahahahhahahahahahahaha

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.

How long?

Posted: December 7, 2014 by socklessjoe in Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Notes on the Revolution

Part of a real conversation I had with my dad, only semi-jokingly.

Dad – I wonder how long it will be until they release the documents showing that Obama represented himself as a foreign student.

Me – Probably about 80 years or so.

Dad – Maybe not until the end of the United States.

Me – Oh, so like in 30 years or so.

First, a Drudgetaposition that made me laugh.

Missouri state senator: This is race war!

Most Businesses that were mostly-peacefully destroyed were minority owned.

Watching all the lefties excuse the riots as “people trying to start a necesary dialogue on how police do their jobs” is pissing me off. The kid attacked a cop, kept attacking after he was shot and somehow, that’s a teachable moment about how blacks don’t trust cops. It’s more of a teachable moment about how Democrats are trying to divide Americans against each other.

Case in point, Obama talking about Ferguson on the 24th, .

They have deep roots in many communities of color who have a sense that our laws are not always being enforced uniformly or fairly.  That may not be true everywhere, and it’s certainly not true for the vast majority of law enforcement officials, but that’s an impression that folks have and it’s not just made up.

 

Asshole, It’s not made up but it’s touted by assholes like you.

Obama is POTUS, he shouldn’t be validating their hatred. I would say he needs to explain that the kid was not Saint Hands Up but a thug who put himself in a position where his death was likely, did nobody watch Chris Rock’s vid on how not to get shot by the cops? below, but Obama cannot do that. He divides to rule.

And we know certain things work.  We know that if we train police properly, that that improves policing and makes people feel that the system is fair.  We know that when we have a police force that is representative of the communities it’s serving that makes a difference.

And we know that when there’s clear accountability and transparency when something happens that makes a difference.

We had a well-trained cop and fair system and no charges were filed but the Mob, egged on by Oama’s admin and their Minitrue toadies, refused to admit that the 6’+, 300lb “boy” was accountable for his actions and demanded a head and you’re here justifying it.

because the problem is not just a Ferguson problem, it is an American problem.

Yeah, it’s you you fucking Chicago-Machine, far-left, anti-democratic asshole.

 

So on to splitting us up over immigration while allowing his Minitrue toadies and the GOP establishment to call me a hateful racist for having a problem with people whose first act in my country being to break the law and then committing all manner of fraud to stay here, crimes that would land me in jail but it’s apparently understandable because of Teh Hatred and Racism!!!!!!!

 If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave, there have been periods where the folks who were already here suddenly say, well, I don’t want those folks.  Even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.

 

Notice the side-stepping of the whole “Illegal” part. Asshole.

Next, WTF? We took this land fair and square.The people here before us killed and ate the people here before them so they had the land by right of conquest.

And don’t say, “It’s IndiansAmerican IndiansNative American…First People and therefore not the same because that’s racist and paternalistic. If you think the Arapahoe would be any happier at losing their land to Apache than whitey, well, that’s just stupid.

Then he puts some numbers on our asses.

One study a few years ago found that immigrants start more than a quarter of all new businesses in the United States

Of course, he’s probably lying, but even if not, how many of those were illegals and how many were legals?

Notice whenever supporters of illegal immigrants always leave out the “illegal” part, Minitrue tries to make it verboten to even note they’re here illegally.

Divide and rule. It worked for Cortez, Obama of course is going the opposite way. Installing a God-King instead of deposing one.

 

 

 

 

 

As with the Religion of Peace, the felonious thugs in Ferguson are accorded more rights than the people who live and have businesses there.

Via Ace, we have this from Missouri Lt.Gov. Kinder

Why were they not in there at the first sign of an overturned police car, or a smashed police car window, with a show of force that would have stopped this? And here’s my question that the governor must answer: Is the reason that the National Guard was not in there because the Obama administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out? I cannot imagine any other reason,” Kinder said.

 

You know that if they deign to answer a question about this decision they’ll say they didn’t want to exacerbate the situation.

You know, because they wouldn’t want to incite the mostly-peaceful protestors or 20 or more buildings and businesses  might be burned and/or looted.

Assholes. As if they should be more solicitous of thugs and felons than the people they’re performing their felonious acts on.

So what’s on deck for tonight?

The media have been blaring the news about reporters being injured, I can see some thug thinking it’ll be funny if a reporters gets killed live on TV.

Hell, I can see some producers thinking that would be cool.

They’re saying now that they’ll more Guardsmen on duty.

Now that everybody is wound up, both the protestors and the people who are going to try to keep order.

Should be interesting,

Especially since I’d bet the mostly-peaceful protestors there tonight will be the ones who are even more mostly-peaceful than the norm.

It’s going to be a busy couple days, we get to watch Ferguson tonight and then tomorrow the blizzard in the northeast.
