What’s going to blow up first? Seriously, things are accelerating out there. I know I’m a doomsayer, but that’s just my learned behavior.

Not much endy today, just a few chucklers as I’m trying not to pay too much attention, I want to be surprised.

So as the EUnuchs are frowning at the Russians over murdering some of them, this

Ukrainian nationalist leader Dmytro Yarosh has been placed on Interpol’s wanted list at the request of Russian authorities. According to the notice, he faces two charges “by the judicial authorities of Russia” for “public incitement to terrorist activities involving the use of mass media” and “public incitement to extremist activities involving the use of mass media.”

 

That guy was in charge of people who kept the previous Ukrainian tsarling from murdering the protestors who were against returning to SSR status so you can pretty much assume the “extremist activities” are “resisting Russian aggression.”

Way to make Putin shake in his jackboots there EUnuchs

 

 

I gotta wonder if the Lebanese will turn against the Party of God over this.

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that his party will provide the resistance in Gaza, which is facing a devastating Israeli offensive, with any support it might need.

Recall a few years ago when Israel blew up southern Lebanon over shit like this. Methinks the Lebanese are watching Israel blowing up Gaza and they might be remembering what life is like on the blown up end of an artillery range and the Israelis are obviously in no mood to take any shit from those barbarians.

 

Obama is feckless and useless which is giving all the bad guys a free pass, why shouldn’t the good guys ignore him too?

Speaking of which, Aussies!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will send troops to eastern Ukraine to protect Australian federal police officers working at the MH17 crash site.

Good for them.

Chinese river turns to blood, I wonder if they skipped the rain of frogs or if the Chinese just ate them?

 

A drudgetaposition.

GOP 2016 quandary, why no women candidates?

TMZ freaks out on Sarah Palin: ‘Bitch,’ ‘Horrible Mom,’ ‘Dumb’

 

Bigger, faster rides may be hitting their peak!!!!!

Yeah, we’ve know about that for a long time here at DPUD

Once Action Park closed it’s been downhill since.

 

Today’s LOL from the Outrider, Karmic irony is pretty darn funny

 

I very rarely LOL but there’s not much else to do.

Remember, schaden is the only freude we’re getting anymore.

30 SECONDS LATER UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I forgot this, I’ve been meaning to post it for a long time.

A drudgetaposition

Malaysian Airline goes down near Ukrainian/Russian border.

Russia tells UN they did not shoot down Ukrainian jet. (update to make it clear They’re talking about a Ukrainian Sukov not the Malaysian air jet in that link)

 

Hmmmmmm, methinks things just got interesting. If, as I believe, the Tsarists shot down a flight from Amsterdam then the EUnuchs have to either do something about it or blame the Jews.

Not sure which way they’ll go.

Above the Update, Bababooey Update!!!!!

You have to love the follow-up question.

Now, back to our other, not all that funny, update.

UPDATE:

Apparently there were Americans on board, so I guess it wasn’t the Jews, Obama will soon blame Bush.

Via the Jawas, we get this tweeter with this tweet.

 

Which links to a youtube audio in Russian (I assume), the Jawas have a translation that says,

Igor Bezler: We have just shot down a plane. Group Minera. It fell down beyond Yenakievo.

Vasili Geranin: Pilots. Where are the pilots?

IB: Gone to search for and photograph the plane. Its smoking.

VG: How many minutes ago?

IB: About 30 minutes ago.

and then it goes on with them finding out it was a civilian plane

It does have the tweet of the day (I can’t figure out how to embed a tweet, I tried above it and it didn’t work)

You go to with the drunk lunatic Russian militias you have, not the drunk lunatic Russian militias you want.

 

 

I have no idea how this footage is getting out, if it is real.  The translation of the title of the video is “Aleppo Ansari east 29 11 2012 full section of the massacre that killed dozens”.

Don’t watch this while you’re eating, or if you want your life to just be unicorns and fairy princesses.

Syria is off the Internet.  Whether this is a result of the Syrian government disconnecting itself, or whether an outside group has disconnected the country in retaliation for the…conflict seems like too passive a word…remains to be seen.  Given that Syria has cut off communications to the outside world in the past, I’m inclined to think it’s governmentally driven.

Using children (the rebels) and bombing civilians (the government) wasn’t horror enough to disconnect the Internet, so I’m wondering (except that I’m certain I don’t really want to know) what’s going on in Syria to precipitate this.

First up, I NY link.  NYC has gas lines out the ying-yang, gas stations are running out of gas so people waiting an hour for gas don’t get any.

Gee, it’s a good thing NYCers voted Bloomberg into office again, after he and the city council decided by imperial fiat that the term limits Teh Peepul voted for did not apply to them. Now, not only can they not get a Big Gulp with extra salt, they can’t get gas to drive to someplace they can.

They have the gov’t they deserve. That makes me laugh.

Next up, remember how when our fine, political, intellectual, social and moral betters told us we had to raise the debt limit so they could get the fiscal house in order and it wouldn’t happen again? Remember when we said, “Fuck you assholes, stop spending our fucking money”?

Well, here we are again.

The United States will hit its statutory borrowing limit near the end of 2012,

I’m sure this time, this time!, they’ll work it out. I mean, they’re going to explain how they need to raise the borrowing limit but that’s just so they can’t the fiscal house in order and otherwise, we’ll be boned.

You know, cuz we’re so not boned right now. If we had been a little more boned a few years ago, we might not be so boned now. But it’s boned, all the way down.

Next up, Did We Lose The Fucking Cold War? link.

Police are allowed in some circumstances to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property without obtaining a search warrant, a federal judge said yesterday.

Motherfuckers. Some time back I said that lately it’s been the worst part of the 90s with the added attraction that it appears we’ve lost the Cold War. I was exaggerating for effect. Now? Not so fucking much.

At one time I would have been sure the Supreme Court would not let this happen, that was before campaign finance reform that curbed the freedom of political speech that the Supreme Jackasses said was A-O-Fucking-Kay. Seriously, the whole fucking point of the First Amendment and it was shot to hell. The First Amendment isn’t just so you could stick a crucifix in a jar of piss, it’s so you can call the gov’t the assholes they are. Now, I can’t buy an ad tomorrow calling Obama an asshole because it’s 60 days before an election.

I went to a Lebanon Now! looking for a Syrian link, I found two that are fucking disturbing.

Ugh.

The West has raised fears Syria’s revolution is falling into the hands of Islamic extremists, but many rebels, and even some peaceful activists, say they are willing to tolerate jihadist fighters for lack of a better option.

I used to read Kavkaz dot org (Chechen site, no linky as it’s now just terrorists) back in 1999-maybe 2003 or so, that and the official Chechnyan Gov’t website (went away, came back jihadi).
They weren’t the puppet Russian gov’t, but the gov’t supposedly of the people. They were cool. They were fighting the Russians who were killing and raping them and their women, often in that order. They would steal young men and then ransom back the bodies. They’d go into a village and kill every military-aged male (16-60). They razed Grozny, I mean they fucking surrounded the city of hundreds of thousands and shelled it into rubble. I’d read a story on Kavkaz or the gov’t site, read the same story on Pravda or another Russian site, and then AFP or someone would have it a week later. AFP almost always was much closer to the Chechen’s version. They would say they killed puppet government types, the Russians would report the guy dying amid “hundreds of children dead in a baby-milk factory” or something and AFP would have a story about General So-And-So, new mayor of some Chechen city, was killed when his car with his bodyguards was shot up.
Then, 9/11 happened and they had a message of condolence for America and called jihadis ‘terrorists’ and  ‘assholes’ (more or less, more flowery language and less profanity).
Then fucking Bush went to fucking Russia and said, “Chechnya who?” for some bullshit concession from Tsar Putin I, that Putin never followed through on, and the Chechnyans knew they were alone. So they started to accept terrorist help. Then, they were killing school-children. That’s what Syria has to look forward to.
Yay!
In the wake of the recent murder of Brigadier General Wissam al-Hassan in broad daylight in Ashrafieh, March 14 MPs have been frank in expressing their fears of further killings among their own ranks. Indeed, security sources have suggested that future attacks will target strategic opposition figures rather than cause widespread public panic with indiscriminate bombings.
Lebanon is another place that let jihadis in only to find out they were fucked.
They were happy about Hezbollah fucking with Israel, and after Israel blew the shit out of southern Lebanon, the Lebanese were happy about Hezbollah getting around UN shit to re-arm. Then, fucking Hezbollah started using those weapons to kill Lebanese people and pols they didn’t like (you know, the way fucking jihadis do), and the Lebanese were all, “You were supposed to use those weapons on Jews!”, and the jihadis were all, BANG, you’re dead.
I could forgive Chechnya, they were done in, being slowly destroyed as a nation, and that was their only hope. But the fucking Lebanese were not against the wall and they know what happens when you let jihadis in, but they let their Jew-hatred get the better of them.
The stupid mother-fuckers used to have the most beautiful place in the middle east, Beirut was Paris on the Med or whatever, then they let Yassir Arafish in, had their civil war that fucking destroyed the unity and peace of the fucking nation and then they were Syrian fucking puppets.

The stupid motherfuckers have only themselves to blame, but it’s still no fun to fucking watch.

I can’t do any Fast and Furious posts because I get really fucking mad. My fucking gov’t sold fucking guns to murderous drug cartels in order to take away my fucking guns. That’s all about the fucked upedness.
I will do a Benghazi link. Doug Ross has provided a helpful timeline of what was going on in Benghazi and Washington at any time. It’s disturbing.
I don’t like to go to Doug Ross’ place, it’s just too fucking depressing, fucking guy (and cobloggers) are just too on top of shit I’d rather be in denial about.
An Ontario judge has issued a restraining order against Iran’s property in Canada — including its embassy in Ottawa and a former cultural centre in Toronto — as the family of an American woman killed in a terrorist attack tries to collect a $13-million judgment by a U.S. court from a wrongful death claim against Iran’s security agency.
First, good on ya Canada. I take back some of the stuff I’ve said about you.
The embarrassing part is, of course, that we need fucking Canada to do this. They put the motherfuckers embassy in hock.
Balls, Canada has them these days. Huh, maybe electing Obama has had a salutatory effect on the world, they realize that maybe, just maybe, they need a crazy fucking cowboy running around.
Or… maybe it’s just that Canada is all wound up from not having hockey.
Eh, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and say “Balls, Big Bouncy, need a shopping cart to carry them, Balls”
That’s enough, I’m all wound up now, I need to kick the dog.
Don’t remember where I got the first three links, probably Drudge or Ace or the Puppy Blender.

For 40 minutes, anyway.  Of course, no one knows what it means…

A few months ago I had a question.

How much TNT does it take to blow up a pyramid?

and a wish

I just hope they put the explosion of the pyramids and Sphinx on youtube.

Since the Egyptians put everything on youtube (warning, unsafe, Daily Beast/folks who like the Twat and He Who Shall Not Be Linked or Named link, you can find better youtube vids just going there)

YouTube video has been a reliable source of news and images from Egypt. Here’s a look at some amazing moments caught live.

Well, it appears we’ll find out the answer to my question and I’ll get  my wish.

Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity.

 

You know they’ll put it on Youtube.

How otherwise from people who demand they be given the credit for burning the Library of Alexandria?

While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

Not really funny, but it’ll make the endy sort of entertaining.

We will also get sort of a vicarious potlatch feeling out of it, so we have that going for us too.  I mean, how often do you get to see people destroy cool stuff that’s a few thousand years old? Thankfully not that often. What was the last time? Oh yeah, the last time Islamist nutjobs took over a country and blew up those cool, Buddhist statues.

Oh, and since we haven’t had a click on sloppy vagina for a long time and it’s not in our word-cloud in the sidebar.

Sloppy vagina pics below the fold.

There are three major wildfires and seven minor wildfires currently burning in Colorado.  I’m classifying major vs minor primarily based on proximity to cities and large-scale damage.  I’m not going to post pictures here; there are a million on the Denver Post and Colorado Springs Gazette websites and available on Twitter at the respective hashtags.

The Flagstaff fire (#FlagstaffFire) is currently burning on one of the mountains that overlooks the city of Boulder.  The Flagstaff fire was started by lightning in a dry thunderstorm.  Firefighters managed to contain the fire before it spread to the neighborhoods to the west of the fire, and have cleared firebreaks to prevent it from moving into Boulder.  Assuming no freak weather occurrences like what happened in Waldo Canyon, the city should be safe despite the fire reaching within a mile and a half of city limits.  If the fire does manage to come down the mountain, the National Center for Atmospheric Research is in its path.  The fire has burned somewhere between 230 and 300 acres, depending on where you get your news, and is 30% contained.

The High Park fire (#HighParkFire) has taken a back seat in the news recently due to the more dramatic fires in Boulder and Colorado Springs.  The High Park Fire is believed to have been started by lightning.  It has burned over 87,000 acres (that’s over 135 square miles) but isn’t threatening much in the way of homes and businesses.  Containment is at 75%.

The Waldo Canyon fire (#WaldoCanyonFire) is the fire you’re seeing on the news and on Michelle Malkin’s blog. The fire is starting to burn neighborhoods in Colorado Springs and is approaching the Garden of the Gods and the Air Force Academy.  The Waldo Canyon fire wouldn’t be nearly as serious as it is if it weren’t for the winds; Tuesday the winds kicked up to 65 MPH and blew the fire across the two firebreaks that were protecting the city.  The fire is at 18,500 acres with containment at 5%.

The Waldo Canyon fire is believed to have been caused by arson.  There are a couple of interesting things about this.  One is a Craigslist post by someone claiming to have seen the arsonist and claiming that calls to the tipline are not being returned.  Another is the question of whether the arsons (both in Colorado Springs and in neighboring Teller County) are related to terrorism.  The FBI is investigating the Waldo Canyon fire, but I’m not convinced there will be an announcement if there is something more than a garden-variety firebug at work.

Despite the objections of many of the locals, President Obama will be arriving in Colorado Springs tomorrow to gladhand and campaign survey the damage.  I’m certain our President will be able to turn back the flames with the power of his mind, and won’t burden anyone at all with any security concerns.

Lee Stranahan has offered a $1,000 reward to whoever can provide the information leading to the arrest and conviction of the coward who SWATted Erick Erickson, Mike Stack and Patterico.  Others have kicked in to bring the reward to over $8,000.

If you’re interested in committing to chipping in, you can do so at the link.  If you’re convinced the douchebag will never be caught and are a gambling man, feel free to make a commitment along the lines of a million bucks, of course.  You’ll look really good and may never have to pay up.

In case you’re wondering what this has to do with any of us, keep in mind that these twatwaffles have announced that they’re interested in revealing the identity of our Head Moron, just as they did to Aaron Worthing.   Any of us who have delighted in the ability to blog without, well, getting SWATted, may consider this a personal attack.

Edited to move this to the top, as they deserve more recognition than a footnote: (BTW – this post is all the fault of the Stop Ron Paul 2012 Facebook group.)

Stupid question time…does this guy, identified by Fox News as Anthony Graziano of Lodi, NJ:

Look like this guy?

(I apologize for the eye-bleeding graphics – apparently Anthony Graziano’s taste in art is as stellar as his taste in politicians.)

That photo was screencapped from this Facebook page.  Sure, there are probably a million billion Anthony Grazianos on Facebook, but the similarity is rather startling.  Or am I suffering from a moment of “All those Eye-talians look alike to this poor redneck”?  The 201 area code is New Jersey, the 982 prefix is for Hackensack, which is 9 minutes from Lodi – certainly close enough to be a mailing address mixup.

That same Facebook page has the following postings on its Wall:

and this…

Oh yeah, and this….

So…is this the same guy?  I’m not 100% certain, but I’m fairly convinced.  The only thing that’s holding me back is that there apparently are two “Decisive Images” photography companies, one owned by father Anthony P. Graziano, one owned by son Anthony M. Graziano.  It’s within the realm of possibility, I suppose, that Daddy is the Paultard.  In which case, I think the son might be able to plead an abusive childhood devoid of any moral guidance and support.
