I meant to put this in my post earlier but I fergitted. Oh well.

Nother Post!

Some channel around here has the Monkees and the Partridge Family on Sunday mornings. I watch them as I’m tubing and coffeeing. I barely remember the shows but I do know every song by heart, sing along and enjoy them.

At least it’s not 80s music.

So yesterday the Partridge Family had a very timely episode.

Keith’s latest girlfriend is a member of a junior women’s lib organization and he volunteers the group to play at one of their rallies without their knowledge. Unfortunately, they soon run afoul of a right wing conservative group that is bent on preventing the rally from taking place. However, Keith soon finds out that taking up a liberal cause is not all that its cracked up to be when his girlfriend threatens to break up with him if the family doesn’t sing from a set list she has prepared rather than their first number-one hit, “I Think I Love You”.

Yes, the song “I think I love you” was…I forget her wording, they didn’t use “Patriarchy” or “heteronormative” and it was tv in 1970 so they weren’t going to say, “rape”.

Basically, saying, “I think I love you” perpetuates stereotypes of male/female interactions putting the woman in the subordinate position, as if her life isn’t complete without a man who loves her.

So she told Keith they had to play only the allowed songs and Keith says

Nobody – *nobody* – censors our material. Censorship is not the path to equal rights.

You tell her! Too bad I’d bet a dollar any of the surviving stars, writers and producers feel somewhat differently today. I could be wrong about that, Elton John did tell the murderous commie dictators in China to suck his dick. In a bad way.

The “Feminists Were Less Violent In The 70s” scene of the episode.

 

You just can’t walk out here and assert your manhood!

Said to Keith Partridge.

No, really. She said that to Keith Partridge. Didn’t you watch the clip? You probably didn’t see the announcement of the replacement act being a woman talking about her crusade to get more women in the NHL either.

A simpler time, when music and Hollywood made fun of proto-feminists.

Just something that made me laugh.

 

Then.

Erdogan’s Brute Squad beat up some protesters when Obama was Ascendant.

Faux News covered it straight. Good for them.

The Wash Post “covered” it.

But the event was seemingly upstaged by proceedings outside the venue, where protesters appeared to clash with Erdogan supporters,

“Seemingly” and “appeared to”…

It’s all just a “he said, she bled all over the place” sort of thing.

The NY Times ignored it.

CNN hilariously has this story headlined

‘I’m not at war with press,’ says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

 

Now.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry lodged a formal protest Monday with the U.S. ambassador over “aggressive” actions by American security personnel during a clash between Turkish guards and protesters as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Washington this month…

 

Oh what a difference an ejection makes.

 

Then.

German tanks roll back into Poland

Yeah, I’m gonna have to be more specific, that was June 193…I mean, June 2015.

 

Now.

But this year, far from the headlines, Germany and two of its European allies, the Czech Republic and Romania, quietly took a radical step down a path toward something that looks like an EU army while avoiding the messy politics associated with it: They announced the integration of their armed forces.

So not much different.

8 years of Obama has shown we cannot be trusted to protect them so they’re doing what they have to do. At least they’re noticing reality.

 

Now, I’m not gonna suggest you click the obvious link-bait, I didn’t,

NEWS YOU CAN USE: Woman Claims She Knows Exactly What Men Like… Since She’s Slept With 10,000 Of Them.

but unless she wrote, “Many men will sleep with just about decent looking woman who is willing.”, she did not learn a thing.

 

See, now this is funny.  Commemorative coins of the 45th President of these United States!

I kinda want one. They’re $10 for one and $15 for two. Hilarity for that low price is hard to find.

I wonder if it’s a Trump hater or a Trump supporter or just a comedian.

 

Could actual reality be imposing its will on REALITY!!!!!!!!!?

Above the post, a minute later, Netanyahu makes Veeshir laugh! Update!!!!!

Netanyahu: For The First Time in My Lifetime, There Is Hope For Change and Realistic Peace

That’s Yiddish for “How’s my ass taste Obama?”

Now back to our post. You have to read the next question after reading the headline but before reading this. I probably should have told you that earlier. Oh well, on to the post!

 

Some would say, No!

Like the WSJ.

Republicans in Congress appear to have struck a Faustian bargain with President Trump: They turn a blind eye to his antics, ethical lapses, possible Russian ties and sheer incompetence. In return, he supports their hard-right agenda to shred the social safety net and cut taxes on the rich.

But now—after the clumsy firing of FBI Director James Comey, the alleged obstruction of justice, the unconscionable revelation of sensitive…

First, ‘Faustian”?

 

More importantly, I could get a subscription to the WSJ to read the rest of the article, but I’ve found a supplier of cheap, actual, moonshine and it accomplishes the same number of dead brain cells.

The only difference is that I point and laugh at entirely different things than the feverish imaginations of some idiot who thinks the GOP was ever on Trump’s side who also calls Trump the “Devil”.

So what has he done that’s so incompetent Mama Boucher… Wall Street Journal Journalist!? Is it undoing Obama’s lawless orders or saying, “Islamic terrorism” to Saudis or flying directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel? Or is it that he goes against what the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party has decreed is Good For America? (spoiler alert, it’s the last thing, V)

While I point and laugh at idiots sometimes when I’m drunk I try to avoid those people, they harsh my buzz.

The other difference is that the moonshine is cheaper. The best part? There’s no deposit on the mason jar but they pay you when they return them!

 

For a take closer to mine, this guy. Via this girl.

For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.

They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.

On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense

RTWT, it’s very intelligent. You can tell cuz it’s agrees with what I think.

 

More smart people!

Wrong, wrong, wrong. He IS addressing the nation—via Twitter, as Rush mentioned, which disallows Government Media from spinning, lying, selectively editing, and basically standing everything he says on its head to mean the opposite of what he actually did say.

We’ve heard it from the very beginning, but think, if you will, about just who it is that’s continually bitching about Trump being on Twitter: Democrat Socialists and—perhaps to an even greater degree—Trump’s Republicrat opposition. The only people who are upset by Trump’s Tweeting are people who don’t like him, who opposed him from the start, and are working even now to thwart and hogtie him. (bold me, italics him V) (well, italics him except for here and the previous parenthetical V)

Going around the Consensus! to get his message out is his worst sin.

 

Ladies, gentleman and Democrats of all ages, I give you a glowing example of the fine Democratic Values!

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)…

“In the words of Kendrick Lamar – whose real last name is Duckworth – be humble,” Duckworth told the graduates.

The lyric in the song is, “bitch, be humble”

She glorified telling bitches to know their place.

But Trump said something stupid! We’re not going to say what, cuz everybody knows he does it all the time, but he said something stupid and therefore, you’re a misogynist hater for noticing this Wymyns Democrat telling bitches to know their place!

Hater.

 

Reality.

Almost all murders and attempted murders in Sweden using firearms are carried out by people with foreign backgrounds..

In around half of the cases, the men were born in Sweden whilst others migrated to the country at a young age. The study looked at 53 convicted and 47 suspected perpetrators involved in shootings in public places which have taken place since 2013…

Around 80 per cent of the men have roots in the Middle East and North Africa, with offenders having roots in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Somalia, and Eritrea…

REALITY!!!!!!!

Sweden now has a registry where people who are “guilty of wrong-think” can be looked up. And if you are on that registry, there will be consequences. Wrong think by the way, includes people who speak openly about the population replacement by migrants in a less than glowing way…

The authority justifies view the registry to those listed expressed objectionable views.

“About 12 000 international and Swedish accounts dedicated to the drive, threat, hatred and incitement against migrants, women and LGBT people, but also against organizations involved in human rights. These accounts often have right-wing and / or neo-Nazi orientation and excites even violence, “the Authority on its website.” (emphasis him V)

Ungood thinking is ungood and will be tracked by the forces of Tolerance, Love and Mostly Peace!

They used to have vikings there, didn’t they? I know they had Gustavus Adolphus, maybe he ended up in Hell and this is his punishment. It surely ain’t Valhalla.

Well, it ain’t Valhalla for Swedish. It appears to be Valhalla for Muslims as they fight all day, eat and drink all night and the place they’re fighting is paying for it all!

 

I don’t really see the problem here.

Venezuela possesses 5,000 Russian-made MANPADS surface-to-air weapons, according to a military document reviewed by Reuters,

The murderous dictator isn’t firing rockets at the protestors and I doubt Trump will invade Venezuela (Joe Biden might, going after all the Nazis who fled there after WWI and the Boer War), and I’d rather have them in that murderous dictator’s hands than some murderous terrorists in the middle east. He might sell them to murderous terrorists elsewhere, but Putin can do that himself. And does.

 

This is somewhat more worrying to me, from so long ago that it didn’t happen.

A proposed contract between Russia and Venezuela that could transfer thousands of sniper rifles to Venezuela has raised concerns in the United States about the potential use or regional distribution of the weapons by the socialist-inspired government of President Hugo Chávez.

The rifles are the latest variant of the Dragunov, a long-barreled, semiautomatic design with a telescopic sight.

Yeah, those sniper rifles are being put to good use.

With Venezuela holding a massive protest today dubbed the “Mother Of All Protests” to challenge the rule of president Maduro, who meanwhile has ordered the army into the streets, while summoning a counterprotests, violence seemed inevitable and moments ago Reuters reported that a young protester was shot (head shot, there’s a disturbing tweet with semi-blurred pic V) in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas.

Since the current murderous dictator was Chavez’ secret police chief, Maduro was in charge of murdering protestors under Chavez too.

All sides agree that a massacre took place on April 11 (2002) in El Silencio (the Silence), a historic district in the heart of downtown Caracas. Sometime between 2:30 and 3:20 p.m., gunmen began firing on opposition demonstrators as they marched on the Miraflores presidential palace to demand Chávez’s resignation (there is some dispute about exactly when the first shots were fired). Nineteen people were killed, including seven opposition demonstrators, seven Chavista counter-demonstrators, and five bystanders, together with about 60 wounded. By that evening, Chávez would be out of office, only to return 47 hours later after the implosion of the provisional government.

So nothing new. Just the same old stuff that our fine media betters are ignoring. Cuz this time, this time!!!!!!, they might get socialism right! If they have to kill a few wogs, well, eggs and Halloween and all that.

 

More REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On today’s Reliable Sources on CNN, Schieffer reported the glaringly obvious truth: that President Trump gave a good speech in Saudi Arabia today. Guest host John Berman had to push back: “you know, Bob, though, that there will be people who look at that last comment you made and say you’re normalizing the president.”

Schieffer gave the perfect response: he wasn’t trying to normalize Trump, he was trying to do what reporters [are supposed to] do: report.

It’s sorta depressing that they’re using my strategy against me. They refuse to act as if reality is real, while I want us to refuse to accept their REALITY!!!!!!!.  Good on Schieffer for his response (there’s vid at the link), I would have expected an apology or some sort of half-hearted defense.

I love this bit from the journolister

you’re normalizing the president. You’re saying because he met this admittedly very low bar for not sounding foolish, in fact, he was in fact presidential. What would you say to criticism like that? (I’d tell you to wash Democratic ass off your mouth before talking to me, but then, I’m kind of an asshole V)

Yeah, the very low bar set by Obama.

Trump didn’t bow as he was shaking hands (a major faux pas in diplomatic circles), he didn’t bow at the waist all the way as if looking for lost change, a sign that you are in a subordinate position, and he didn’t apologize to dictators for buying their product and protecting their country against their neighbors so they can keep dictating.

So yeah, that bar was low, but Trump cleared it without even noticing it. He said,

That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.

When was the last time anyone said that in Saudi Arabia? I’d guess it was done in a British accent and the speaker was a military governor of the British Empire in the 19th century.

If not then, I’d say it was never said to the oligarchs of Arabia.

Looking for articles on that speech, I saw some hilarious stuff about how it was a terrible speech that did not do any good. Which shows us that the media isn’t even trying anymore. They had those articles written before the speech and Trump had the bad manners to not suck but they didn’t change their articles. Remember, they’re not just stupid, ignorant and biased, they’re lazy too!

 

The Arctic will be ice-free this year….in five years…..in 23 years!

The last piece of summer sea-ice in the Arctic is expected to melt away in just 23 years,

Disprove that prediction!  I love this bit

three decades earlier than previously expected.

Don’t you mean 3 decades later?

Or….

Global warming alarmists and climate scientists have predicted that the Arctic Ocean will be ice-free by 1979, or 2000, or 2008, or 2012, or 2013, or 2015, or 2020, or 2030, or 2050 or…

Do you mean 61 years late? 40 years late? 32 years late? 28 years late? 27 years late? 25 years late? 20 years late? 10 years late? or 10 years early?

It’s sorta funny how Settled Science!!!!!!!!!!! is so unsettling.

 

While I don’t condone this and I think anybody who disseminates this is a tool of Big Robbery!, it’s just so darn brilliant I have to post it.

Always carry duct work when committing a crime!

 

The most brilliant ideas are the simplest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coup! Coup!

Comey is going to testify before Congress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the Senate Intelligence Committee in public sometime after Memorial Day.

The committee’s chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, and the ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner, announced Friday that Comey will testify in an open setting before the committee. The date of the hearing has not yet been set.

There is just so much in that that sentence and a half that’s just wrong.

Notice the operative word, “open”. Since it will be open, look for him to not answer any question because that would compromise NATIONAL SECURITY!!!!!!!!!!! He will neither confirm nor deny crap, he will try to insinuate all manner of things.

Notice the date has not yet been set. You know what that means! Leaks for all! Oh the leaks we’re gonna see about what Comey’s gonna testify about, from unimpeachable, anonymous sources reading from memos that we can’t see! That’s the gold standard of reportage!

Then, we’ll get to see all the Trump Changes His Story!!!!!!! articles where Trump didn’t change his story, the journolister just twisted something he said and then twisted something else he said and then just made a bunch of stuff up. You know, business as usual.

 

Which leads us to this.

Please stop making me defend Trump

 

1980-2014 Veeshir would be very upset if 2017 Veeshir told him he was spending so much time and effort defending Trump. He’d probably punch me right in the nose. I would refuse to tell him I voted for Trump, even against Hillary. Even 1996 Veeshir wouldn’t think that was funny.

Regular readers are familiar with my disdain for Trump, having been a Never Trumper prior to the election. However, once he was elected, Trump became my president because that’s just how life works. (My thoughts on that here.)

I’m still skeptical of Trump’s ability to do the job well, but I grow increasingly aggravated with the collective political media set who seem to be doing everything in their power to destroy this presidency. We don’t have an opportunity to praise or criticize the administration and their efforts because the whole of our time is spent debunking misreported claims based on anonymous sources, none of which are favorable to Trump.

It’s like global warmmongering, you can’t do real science to see what we’re doing to the environment because all the SCIENCE!!!!!!!!! has to be about how WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! from CO2, just as we have to respond to idiotic lies from anonymous source and OUTRAGES!!!!!!!! that Trump gets two fucking scoops of fucking ice cream.

The 21st century is not what I expected.

 

More questions for the lying liars who lied about some anonymous memo that nobody can see.

That carefully-worded sentence doesn’t tell us much. It’s a “White House document.” Written by whom? Circulated among what group as the official account? For example, was this document signed off on by Trump as an official memo for in-house consumption? Was it written or approved by someone who was at the meeting? As I read the paragraph above, I also note that the second official confirmed the “broad outlines” of the discussion but did not confirm the Trump quote.

While I applaud this, he’s just feeding into their delusions and even worse, he’s trying to reason people out of a position they were not reasoned into.

 

More anonymous leaks.

Aides to President Trump reportedly organized an “intervention” recently in an attempt to get their boss to curb his infamous tweetstorms.

I’m not so much defending Trump as pointing and laughing at the lying Never Trumpers in the NY Post.

I just cannot see his staffers having an “intervention”. I mean, I didn’t hear about a bunch of Trump staffers being fired and tossed out the front door by a couple of his Marine guards. They would report real news on Trump, not just the made-up stuff, right?

 

Speaking of our fine media betters, Anderson Cooper, he who labeled the Tea Baggers, he who will defend Hillary no matter what she says or does, up to and including lying about her made-up pneumonia,

 

During a segment on AC360, Cooper verbally sparred with Lord, a CNN political commentator, over revelations that Trump reportedly told Russian officials that former FBI Director James Comey is a “nut job” who was adding pressure to the ongoing investigation of possible interference in the 2016 election. Clearly frustrated with Lord’s response to the matter, Cooper interrupted the conservative pundit and interjected with a not-so-subtle jab.

“If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it,”

And then apologized. Oh.. mighty big of him.

He won’t change his hate-filled bias, he has his standard standard after all, but he will say he’s sorry for saying a bad thing to a fascist.

Who, remember, was responding to a moronic lie by an anonymous ‘leaker’ that I would be utterly unsurprised if said leaker did not even exist. I’d bet the whole idiotic thing was made up of whole cloth either solely by the journolister or by a Democratic operatative with the connivance of the journolister. Well, another Democratic operative besides the journolister.

 

If you change “Palestinian terrorist” for “anti-fa thuggle”, in the near future I expect to see shit like this with CNN being ‘ON-SCENE!”

An Israeli man whose car was attacked by rioters shot dead a Palestinian man and injured an Associated Press photojournalist during a violent protest in the northern West Bank town of Hawara on Thursday, officials said. His car was pelted with stones and he said he believed he was going to be killed, and that he fired in self-defense…

Now, naturally the Israeli is being attacked, they were just throwing stones at this occupier, he had no right to defend himself against a mob!

We then see the pertinent (and impertinent) question

The injury to the photo “journalist” raises its own questions. How is it that multiple photo journalists were present at the supposedly random and spontaneous attack? Maybe because it wasn’t random and spontaneous, but preplanned, just waiting for an Israeli vehicle, with the journalists embedded with the attackers.

The difference being that when it happens with CNN and an anti-fa thuggle, it will most likely be in a Dem run city so the victim won’t be armed. When the media and the thugglets are so simpatico, it’s only a matter of time before the protestors and the media collude to get some good footage of a nazi being beaten.

 

GOP voters device

News from last year!

RUH ROH: Trey Gowdy Hints At a Much Bigger Scandal Involving the Clintons and Obama’s DOJ

Trey, can I call you Trey? Stop throwing fish at my face! If you’re not going to do anything useful you could at least leave me alone. I stink of fish and Republican spit.

 

Totally not related

The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.

Current and former American officials described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades.

Gee, I wonder what might have happened at that time? I mean, I know what happened, it was when China was busy ransacking every ‘secure’ database’ the gov’t had and Hillary’s server was serving up secrets to anybody with an AOL account.

So why didn’t we hear about this before?

From the final weeks of 2010 through the end of 2012, according to former American officials, the Chinese killed at least a dozen of the C.I.A.’s sources. According to three of the officials, one was shot in front of his colleagues in the courtyard of a government building — a message to others who might have been working for the C.I.A.

Still others were put in jail. All told, the Chinese killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 of the C.I.A.’s sources in China, according to two former senior American officials, effectively unraveling a network that had taken years to build.

Oh right, election season. Obama had an election to win and nobody wanted the voters to get the wrong idea.

But Trump colluded with the Russians to…uhhh…. he colluded! don’t you get it? Colluded!

Just so you know, they do mention Obama

and urgent questions from the Obama administration wondering why intelligence about the Chinese had slowed.

He was so angry! Why, someone let him down!

I will say that bit is a lie. The NY Times journolister or editor noticed that this looked bad for Obama so they had to make sure we knuckledraggers understood He Was On The Job! I’d bet a dollar he never even noticed it.

How can I say that?

Retired Lt. General Michael Flynn told the Daily Caller Tuesday that in his over five years of serving in key intelligence posts in the Barack Obama administration, not once did he meet with the president.

That 5 years culminated in Flynn heading the NIA in 7/2012. As this was going on.

 

Oh, and speaking of COLLUSION!

Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion

…But on Wednesday night, Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to “cast doubt” on “allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke (pot smoke or meth smoke, you make the call! V), but there is no fire at all,”

That won’t stop them as the Dems, their media arm and the GOP obfuscate the issue. You see, COLLUSION! is a nice, ambiguous term that doesn’t really mean all that much.

 

This story leaves us with a conundrum.

California’s elected Democrats had tough words for President Donald Trump and the GOP Congress on Saturday, urging their party’s fired-up activists to work against the 14 Republicans in the state’s congressional delegation.

You could write that story any day of any year there’s any Republican doing something to thwart the forces of Tolerance, Love and Mostly-Peace, so did the editor need some filler or was the journolister just late with a story so he moderned that up from one he wrote in 2006? I mean, do a ctrl-f and change all the “Bush”es into “Trump”s and voila! Timely Story!

 

I’d say this formulation is exactly the opposite of the deal.

Removing Trump Won’t Solve America’s Crisis

Watching our social, moral, political and intellectual betters undo an election they did not like would not be the end of the problems but the beginning of some serious problems.

Just cuz it’s very fucking funny out doesn’t mean it’s not very fucking endy as well.

 

I used to be against term limits, but getting rid of these assholes would be a good idea.

Of all the crazy ways that members of Congress are above the law, the fact that politicians and their staff are largely immune from insider trading laws has to be near the top of the list.

They write the laws that govern themselves. While I am second to none in my admiration for the writers of the Constitution, how the fuck did they let that happen? I mean, I know how, the men who voted on the Constitution were men not saints. But still.

I just can’t work up my usual, “That’s telling Americans they don’t know who to vote for!”

Because we obviously don’t.

 

Above the post Caballero Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!’

I went to pick it up. All systems were go. I paid. I went out the car. I got in. I started it. I pulled the seat belt from the post. I click…….No. I didn’t. They had put the seats in and carefully trapped all the seat belt parts except the two shoulder belts on the outside. It would have taken real skill to get them trapped under the seat. So…. next week!

Why do I feel like Tom Hanks and Shelley Long?

 

 

Now on to our post in its entirety!

In this instance, we have the wind and vibrations of vehicles going over matching the natural frequency which, with positive feedback, oscillates out of control.

 

In this instance, ‘journalists’ keep coming up with more and more ridiculous “scoops!” as we watch them oscillate out of control.

President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

Now, while I agree and I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump at some time called him that, I seriously doubt he said it to the Russians. And if he did, how did the NY Times get this ‘scoop’?

I do love the “I’m not under investigation.” bit, I wish they had an image to go with it. I’ll provide one!

There, better.

 

Fakenewser catalogues fake news while pretending it’s not fake news!

Notice the headline about it being an Epic Week! I’m with them. This is possibly the most epically hilarious thing that even I would never have expected to see.

Do they really want to get into the epicness of their week when that was part of it?

Here we have the obligatory, It’s All Trump’s Fault That We’ve Been Going Crazy All Week! I guess his Gaslighting strategery is working!

President Trump’s struggles have been keeping newsrooms busy at all hours. The broadcast networks have been breaking into programming with special reports, almost exclusively about the Trump administration’s setbacks and self-inflicted wounds. CNN has whipped up “White House in crisis” graphics (and Trump gets 2 scoops graphics, don’t forget that! V)….

After The New York Times revealed the existence of fired FBI director James Comey’s memos…

Not so much “self-inflicted” as lie-inflicted. Like the memos the NY Times didn’t so much reveal as claim some anonymous person claimed existed.

I love this bit

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked on the air last Sunday, “Is there anyone in the West Wing who can be trusted to tell the truth?”

Is there anyone at CNN I can trust?  Jake Tapper was pretty good about being one of the few who noticed some of Obama’s pefidy and felonyizing  so…

I could actually agree with that quote. It it was about all the lies that have been supposedly leaked by supposed Trump staffers.

Hyperbolic lefty hyperboles!

On television that day, Carl Bernstein said, “I think this is a potentially more dangerous situation than Watergate.”

See graphic above.

CNN notices what I noticed

The banner headline on the conservative Washington Free Beacon web site went even further on Friday: “Nation on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

Concerned Conservatives make Minitrue happy. Oh, and those they claim are Republicans.

David Ignatius channeled the concerns of prominent Republicans, one of whom he said had told him Trump is “Richard Nixon on steroids.”

First, see graphic above. Again.

Second, is David Ignatius claiming to be a ‘prominent Republican’? I’ve seen him quoted and I didn’t realize why, now I do.

 

So what have we learned today? Veeshir is bored and felt like posting again.

Oh, and CNN has absolutely no fucking shame.

But then, we already knew that.

I am very happy I was approved at the trailer park, I really didn’t want to have to spend more time looking at trailer parks. It’s in a good location and it’s the nicest I saw after looking at 3 in person and a whole bunch online. The three I visited all had spongey spots in the floor.

The only drawback is a short parking spot alongside the trailer. It doesn’t go the whole length so it’s going to be tight getting both cars to fit. The inner car might have to hang off the paved part onto a graveled part.

I’ve had worse problems.

Speaking of which, I dropped my Caballero off on Monday for my appt. on Tuesday so they’d be able to get started right away in the morning.

They had to fix the fuel line that vapor locks when it idles in hot weather (Phoenix), neaten up the wires that you’d think the guy who put the engine in might have neatened up instead of leaving hanging and take out the faux-Recaro buckets seats I hated and put in a bench seat from an 81 Regal. They don’t fit in the bed ala Subaru Brat, I checked.

They did the seats on Tuesday, mmmmm cushy, they’re starting work on the rest today, I don’t know why they didn’t work on it Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Did one of you call them and say it’s required to fuck with me when working on that Caballero?

It will not be ready today. It’s going to be hot next week and I want to put the convertible under a car cover. Hopefully the Caballero will be ready by August.

When is the end of the world?

May 31st!

 

Mega-Earthquake!

You have to love people who look on the bright side, but until then, we’re stuck with now.

 

See, this guy is a pessimist, I can respect that but I have much more faith in our fine media betters.

Media Reach Peak Meltdown Over Comey Memo, Russian Disclosure
Fresh pair of Trump controversies has press demanding impeachment, suggesting people will die

I’d say we ain’t seen nothing yet.

 

How can I say that? According to the NY Times,

The ceremony occurred in the Blue Room of the White House, where many senior law enforcement officials — including the Secret Service director — had gathered. Mr. Comey — who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that daytold Mr. Wittes that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out. (emphasis me V, cuz the picture that brings to mind is just so fucking funny.)

That’s right, they’re claiming the FBI director was afraid of Trump and tried to hide from him by wearing camouflage. No, they really wrote that, I’m not making it up. I’m not that creative. I might have said he was hiding but the wearing camouflage is just that extra touch I’m not sure I have.

Seriously, if you’d just click the link you’d be more stupider but at least then you’d know that, unlike the NY Times, I’m telling the truth.

 

WTF is going on at the Free Beacon? Another Concerned Conservative bashing Trump for his twitting at twits.

The man can’t help himself. I’m speaking of course of our president, Donald Trump, whose talents at marketing and publicity brought him wealth and fame and, at the age of 70, the highest political office in the nation…

And this Concerned Conservative is On The Job!

His desire to convey an image of speed and determination has resulted in executive orders stopped by judicial intervention

You mean where they judge-shopped, found some assholes who would go against settled law because they didn’t like Trump? That judicial intervention? Jackass.

a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused.

The only confusion is trying to figure out how to avoid doing what they’ve been specifically elected to do and the only people they’re quarrelsome with are Trump and me. That fucking legislature. Idiot.

His popping off on Twitter creates scandals that should not otherwise exist, and inflames already high tensions in the capital.

He should mean responding to made-up scandals, but he doesn’t. That is what he’s talking about after all even if he doesn’t realize it.

The funniest/stupidest sentence of the link.

His firing of FBI Director James Comey, then his changing explanations of the dismissal, birthed an enemy he does not want to have and alienated a staff whose loyalty he needs.

No, he hasn’t changed his explanations, this idiot is relying on news reporrts of what Trump Said!!!!! instead of looking at what Trump said. On his Twitter Account. Which this idiot is bashing.

Alienated the staff that’s been leaking since before he took office? That staff? The staff this idiot is relying on anonymous quotes for how they feel. That staff.

As for the “birthed an enemy” idiocy, no. Are you not watching the war on him, and by extension us, by everybody? The war that started more than a year ago?

Twitter is his only way to get his message out against the cries of Minitrue, the rest of the Democratic party and Concerned Republicans. Like, apparently, the Free Beacon.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but my optimism that they were not establishment pricks is being sorely tested by a couple articles this week, that one by A Concerned Conservative and the other one where they tried to tie a GOP candidate to Obama over Bush’ forced stimulizing and bailouting.

 

For the counter-point,

The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.

Yup. But I do decry Kurt’s vulgarity, nobody should be told to kiss anybody’s ‘Reid’.

That’s just fucking vulgar and low.

I saw that link a few places but I clicked from Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, which is a good round-up place.

 

I have in my hand proof, incontrovertible PROOF!!!! that Harvard grades on a curve!!

 Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity. Of news reports with a clear tone, negative reports outpaced positive ones by 80 percent to 20 percent.

 

80%? What news were you watching? Other than Hannity and part of Bret Baier’s show (usually with Catherine Herridge who actually does news but definitely before the panel), I’d bet Fox was more than 80% negative, as for The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc., they’re ridiculous. Didn’t you watch CNN bash him for eating ice cream?

If they meant as an average only 80% of each and every report was negative I’d be with them. Even MSNBC has to take breaths between screeches.

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb Cuz Repeal And Replace Is On Deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Apparently, the House made a mistake, probably caused by all the Turmoil Surrounding Trump, so now they’re going to have to re-vote on Repeal and Replace..the Fix For Obamacare before they can send it to the Senate where they’ll undoubtedly get right on it.  Right. On. It.! This time! This time I am so optimistic they’re going to do it right that I could just shit myself!

Republicans are using the budget “reconciliation” process to pass their health care bill, which allows them to push legislation through the Senate with a simple majority. But that depends on the bill meeting certain requirements — and one of them is that it reduces the deficit by at least $2 billion over the next decade.

The trouble is that Republicans voted on their House bill without waiting for the Congressional Budget Office, the federal agency that evaluates legislation, to finish its projections, which are expected next week.

 

Ooopsie! No, I didn’t shit myself, my fine GOP betters are shitting all over me though! So I have that going for me.

It’s funny how, for me, the whole purpose of the “GOP Win!” category had changed over the last couple years.

Well, not so much funny as infuriatingly infuriating.

 

See, this is what I’m going on about. In talking about the Iranian ‘election’,

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani hopes Friday’s election will put him back in the hot seat for another term, enabling the 68-year-old to pursue engagement with the West.

But the moderate, who struck a deal with world powers to curb Iran’s nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief, faces a strong challenge from hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi.

He believes Rouhani has gone too far and sold out the values of Iran’s Islamic revolution to its enemies.

 

They’re pretending the vote means anything at all. The mad mullahs decide who can run and they tell the ‘winner’ (puppet) how to act. I’m surprised they haven’t run Achmed the Dead Terrorist, maybe he’s on contract with Jeff Dunham so is unavailable.

Watching the media fawn over Achmadinejihad, the new madman they’re running and the Reform Candidate!!!!!, Rouhani, as if they’re not sock-puppets is just stupid. Although… at least Iranian sock-puppets work, so they have that going for them.

Who wins will show us what Iran thinks of the West I’d think. If it’s Rouhani, they’re going to pretend to ‘engage’ the West!!!!, if it’s the other guy, they’re going to get more overtly hard-assed. Should be interesting.

 

I don’t know if it’s new, 8 billion sellers of Che shirts might disagree, but it surely is hypocritical, ignorant and annoying.

 

The more you know about Robert E. Lee the more you respect him.

 

If Trump really wants to get America laughing and our fine social, moral, political and intellectuals frothingly maddened, I have a suggestion.

He could call himself Chaitlyn.

 

 

A few years ago I wrote a totally ridiculous post about telekinetic squirrels and oyster herpes.

As Rachel Lucas says,

It is to the point that writing about the news is like writing about telekinetic squirrels.

In other words, it can’t possibly even be real, so writing about it feels creepy, pointless, and silly.

I’ve noticed that Certain People think that because I am not on American soil, I might not be aware of U.S. news. I keep telling those people that I have the internet. Sadly for me, I’m indeed following all the crazy shit going on, and the only reason I don’t blog about it six times a day is because IT IS INSANE, OH MY GOD, WHAT THE HELL?

 

I’m with you. But I’m pretty creepy, I love pointless and you have to accept the silly with the scary.

And then we got to oyster herpes, which they’re blaming on global worming instead of promiscuous oysters!

Which is a lot less ridiculous than my tubin this morning.

 

Welcome to the party pal.

Some of America’s top intelligence officials are expressing frustration at the wave of media hysteria that has greeted reports that President Trump may have shared sensitive intelligence with top Russian diplomats last week, with some saying a handful of news organizations are guilty of hyping what amounts to a nonstory.

The deuce you say! Why, it’s almost as if there’s a reason so many people are talking about all the fakenews!?!?!?!?!?

 

The way to be informed, to figure out what’s going on is try to check stuff out to see if there’s corroboration or you can just see if it accurately describes past events in making its case. (the federalist isn’t working for me so here’s a quote from vodkapundit linking it at the puppy blender’s)

In this account, Comey’s actions showcase a duplicitous, secretive schemer whose true loyalties were not to the officials to whom he reported, but to partisan Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). To fully understand and appreciate Jim Comey’s approach to politics, the writings and testimony of Alberto Gonzales, who served as both White House counsel and attorney general during the events in question and is intimately aware of Comey’s history of political maneuvering, is absolutely essential.

If we go by what we’ve seen of Comey I’m gonna have to say, Veeshir Vact Check: True!

The whole thing was ridiculous and is becoming dangerous as our fine betters sputter with faux outrage designed to thwart the last election they really did not like.

 

These people would be indignant if I pointed and laughed.

Alt-left advocates for net neutrality, who say they want a “free and open internet,” want to ban the Drudge Report…

Protect Our Internet claims its mission is to “keep the internet vibrant, free and equal.”

The campaign also claims net neutrality rules are “protecting our freedom to use the internet!”

 

Big Brother would be pointing and laughing at their pathetic use of orwellian language.

 

I agree with Paul Ryan!

Paul Ryan insists Trump drama isn’t affecting Congress

The question is putting the cart before the whores, Congressional Republicans are affecting the drama around Trump, by pushing it and tut-tutting most vigorously.

 

 

Via Babalu blog we see this from the Hill.

When Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos meets with President Trump at the White House on Thursday, May 18, there will be much to discuss — from the financing of the impunity deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to the recent skyrocketing of the cocaine influx into the United States. Yet, Santos will undoubtedly dodge addressing his complicity in the persecution of his own and other political oppositions in our region.

First, I hope not, but how funny is it that the Hill, which can’t be assed to mention  the murderous dictator in Venezuela murderously dictating Teh Peepul, but they’ll happily bash Columbia as becoming as bad.

 

This is pretty dam cool.

They may be known as as the Golden Age of Dutch art, but with moody expressions and dark hues, these portraits don’t exactly live up to their moniker.

At least until graphic designer Olly Gibbs, 27, from London, used a face-changing app on his phone to plaster them with cheesy grins.

 

I just like them. Especially this one that looks sorta like me.

Check them all out.

 

Some times I don’t hate people.

 

Above the post, before I post, I shouldn’t have clicked over to the news update!

So, after 8 years of Obama wiping his ass on the laws and the Constitution with no reaction from the fucking “Justice” Dept except to hide his crimes and Hillary’s, we have a Special Prosecutor for the non-crime of Russia helping release emails showing Hillary corruption!

We have to stop taking these assholes seriously. Stop voting for them, stop sending them money, stop reading the news or watching it. Maybe if we ignore them they’ll go away.

Now back to the post I was just about to post!

 

I warned you! I told, don’t encourage them, don’t act as if they’re not totally useless and stupid.

But no. Nobody listened and here we are,

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on May 16 expressed that “drama” in the White House was detracting from the Republican political agenda.

 

I was wondering what excuse they were going to use for failing to do what we elected them to do and I was also wondering how they were going to go after Trump, but here we are, with those assholes blaming their failure theater on Trump.

I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so we can focus on our agenda, which is deregulation, tax reform, repealing and replacing ObamaCare,” said McConnell.

Yeah, cuz they’ve been working so hard since January! Wait, what have they done? Besides call Trump and asshole and tell me to fuck I mean. I’ll tell you what they’ve done, jack and squat, and jack is full of shit.

And guess who else is in on It’s Trump’s Fault We Are Fucking Useless?

Multiple other members of Congress expressed similar exasperation with recent developments in Washington. Fellow Republican Senator Jeff Flake concurred with McConnell, as did Senator Susan Collins.

The Usual Suspects.

 

Idiot Self Idiofies!

Support for President Trump among Republican lawmakers may be showing signs of strain..

Or should that be, “News From Last Year!”? How can anybody pretend the GOP doesn’t hate Trump even more than they hate their voters?

 

Why is this woman not being called to testify and subject to calls for special prosecutors?

Because we treated Obama and his suckophants as if they were not booger eating morons. So here we are, with one of the people who has most damaged our nation and who will never be called to account calling for an investigation of Trump.

 

While I applaud the noticing of exactly how stupid, damaging and utterly annoying our fine media betters are, I don’t like the headline.

The national media and the Democratic Party have gone stark raving mad over President Trump’s election victory; they refuse to accept it

Yup.

Our media and our Democrats seem to think that with all their hateful, childish behavior, their tantrums (“we won’t vote for an FBI director unless there is a special prosecutor“), they can win back the House and Senate in 2018.   They seem not to realize that they are going to lose more seats in both houses.  Their strategy, these vile tactics, are a suicide pact.  And when the mainstream media and the Democratic Party die by their own hands, only the mind-numbed elites on both coasts and the denizens of the editorial offices of the  NYT,  the WaPo  and the LA Times will be surprised.  No one else will care.  They will have seen it all coming for years.

The suicide pact is really just the results of taking them seriously.

They damage themselves in a tithing sort of thing with a heaping helping of positively feedbacked idiocy. As each moron said something more stupider and was not immediate laughed at, another moron said something even more, more stupider and then even more, more stupiderer until here we are, with the Dems and the media calling for Comey’s head for 6 months only to call him their BFF after they got what they asked for.

And I thought Vice President Joe Biden was going to be the most stupidest thing we’d see this century.

 

The EUnuchstanian EUrozone is in even more economic trouble than us and the IMF knows whose fault it is and what they need to do.

Europe’s richest nation – Germany – is being urged by the International Monetary Fund to spend more to boost its growth potential and that of the entire eurozone.

No really, Germany. The most stable, prosperous country in EUnuchstan and it’s their fault. That sentence basically should read, “Gimme, gimme, gimme.”

In a just released report the IMF revealed its wish list for Berlin which includes investing billions in new and upgraded infrastructure including improved internet access.

In addition it would like the government to spend more on childcare and refugee integration.

Income tax cuts are also suggested, along with employers raising wages to help lift eurozone inflation leading to the European Central Bank being able to wind down its stimulus efforts.

See? I would laugh at the idea that the EUnuchs want to force private employers to raise wages, but here we have people acting as if $15/hr minimum wage is not idiocy.

 

I hate the media. Here we have a story about how Venezuelans are wearing masks to hide their identities from the gov’t during protests and nowhere in that article is any intimation as to exactly why they’re trying to hide their identities.

You see, we’ve allowed idiots to pretend that socialism is a viable economic model instead of pointing and laughing whenever some fool claimed that.

 

As we’ve dealt with the dishonest idiocy of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” and even pretended the people pushing it deserved anything but to be fired from turning burgers at White Castle, we are ignoring the whole, Don’t Snitch! bullshit.

CHICAGO — The mother of a girl who officials said was gang-raped on Facebook Live is trying to raise money to move her family out of the neighborhood.

The girl, 15, has been living with relatives since the attack in late March, the mother told WGN. Her family remains in North Lawndale, and they say they’ve been harassed and attacked while trying to get enough money to move away.

Earlier this week, the victim’s 12-year-old sister was attacked by a group of girls near their home, their mother said.

Instead of pointing and laughing or pointing out the inherent racism whenever some racist Democrat screeched about The White Man Keeping The Black Man Down we’ve treated them as if they are not racist, horrible, assholes. So here we are, with blacks preying on blacks at unbelievable numbers and yet all the coverage on any problems blames whitey and the cops.

 

People treat Clintons and their istas as if they are not vile, corrupt, dishonest, willfully ignorant assholes, and we deserve everything we get from that.

In Chicago, city officials were busy working on outlawing guns and selling illegal guns. While I applaud the synergy, lock them up.

Emanuel was tight-lipped when asked Monday to define the role he accused Murphy of playing in the email scandal. But he referred obliquely to the broader investigation of alleged gun sales….

  • Rahm claimed Chick-fil-A didn’t reflect Chicago values because their company owners ascribe to the Catholic view of marriage – not that they discriminated (they didn’t), but that they believe in it; Rahm then welcomed Louis Farrakhan, one of the bigger racists in our lifetimes, to the violence plagued streets of the south side;
  • Rahm got outraged when someone with pirated radio uses racial slurs over a police zone, but his people hire back a known drunk who dealt guns over the city’s e-mail system and spread racist e-mails to subordinates and supervisors;

Rahm is one of the most vile Clintonistas. You know, along with all of them.

 

And what’s the most ridiculous of today’s ridiculosities, (besides VP Joe Biden)? That’s right, global warmmongering!

Let’s look at the intersection of vile Clintonistas and global warmmongering, Virginia!

Gov. Terry McAuliffe today directed the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to begin assembling regulations to reduce carbon emissions from Virginia…

So if you’re gonna go to Virginia, don’t breathe! (yeah, I cut “power plants” but I learned to change quotes to fit my agenda! That’s how professional journalists do it! V)

 

Not really related, just made me laugh.

U.S. warplanes struck Islamic State fighters in March who thought they had reached a safe passage deal with U.S.-backed fighters in Syria, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Approximately 70 ISIS fighters had struck a deal with the Syrian Democratic Forces, the main force relied on by the U.S. to defeat ISIS. The deal entailed dropping weapons and defusing improvised explosive devices in exchange for safe passage outside of the city.

Once they left the city, the U.S. systematically targeted the fighters within their rules of engagement. “I think SDF let them have safe passage out of Tabqa, but once they continued on the battlefield, I don’t know if that’s something we’re required to honor,” Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told TheWSJ.

Your shoelaces are untied!

Well, semi-related. Trump might actually be noticing reality in Syria. Between this and sending weapons instead of more people he might actually have a grasp on how to handle Syria and, indeed, the whole Middle East.

 

So how ridiculous is today? He thinks this is ‘profound’ and many people do not think this is ridiculous.

Fight the power!
