I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.
A drudgetaposition, smart diplomacy edition
Turkey welcomes Israel apology for defending against terrorist flotilla!
Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.
Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.
Barbra Streisand to perform in Tel Aviv
Lebanon’s gov’t dissolves itself. I figure Hezbollah will move in. Oh well, they had their Cedar Revolution and they allowed Jew-hatred to fuck it up.
Via the Jawas, A look at Hezbollah’s politicking.
(Note: I have no idea where that is and I condemn myself for laughing every time I watch it)
Global worming attacks Ukraine!
Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.
I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.
A week or two ago I had a story about how
Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.
Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.
Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?
Via Samizdata, more Airstrip One news, some friend of O’Brien’s had this to say about their new restrictions on free speech, journalism and blogging.
Headline of the op-ed.
Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy
In the body
believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.
Freedom Is Slavery!
I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.
I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though
Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.
Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.
Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.
The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty. One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?
Alexander (R-TN) Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO) Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA) Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS) Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN) Cornyn (R-TX)
Hatch (R-UT) Hoeven (R-ND)
Isakson (R-GA) Johanns (R-NE)
McConnell (R-KY) Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL) Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD) Wicker (R-MS)
Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.
Speaking of which…..
From the Barrel of a Gun (blog) we see this.
It would be funny if it weren’t true.
Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.
NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.
Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.
This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.
It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.
This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)
Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.
Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!
President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.
First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.
I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?
I cannot put anything, no matter how despicably murderous, past Mr Fast and Furious Benghazi.
Now, the hotassery, I believe this is the first actual sex show on DPUD!
Work that bitch!
Or is that Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Animal Sanctuary?
