To sum up the article (but you should read the whole thing)… Nederland was home to a Mansonesque cult in the 70s. One of the cult leaders was killed by a city marshal, who then dumped the body down a mine shaft. 45 years later, a little person attempts to avenge the death of his cult leader friend by planting a bomb at the police station – but the marshal has been dead for over a decade. The bomb was to be detonated by cell phone but failed to go off.
This situation is Hillary!esque in its chutzpah. Headline and subhed
When Will Liberals Answer For Obamacare’s Failures?
Is there any accountability in politics for being completely wrong? Not for defenders of Obamacare.
The better question should be, “Why should the GOP fix the problems with Obamacare we were all called assholes and idiots for saying would happen?”
The self-answering question is, “Why the hell is the GOP going to fix Obamacare when the only people who want it are members of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party?”
I saw this linked a lot yesterday,
Hillary Clinton began conducting focus groups and polling swing state voters as early as December 2014 to figure out how to brand herself and find a “rationale” for running for president.
Nobody seemed surprised that it was only two years, I’d say she’s been planning this since at least 1952 and she’s been working on hood-winking folks since probably before that so this is actually surprising, but not for the reason I’ve seen mentioned.
I’d say this article leads us to much more interesting question than the last one.
Hillary Clinton needed a helping hand to trek up a single step during a visit in Florida today.
Look at the video as the guy hovers behind her to keep her from falling.
The more interesting question would be, “For how long as Hillary! been focus-grouping and polling Drs to see how she and Minitrue can keep Americans in the dark as to her serious illnesses?”
In, ‘Hey, that’s my schtick!!!‘ news,
The president of a major labor union (Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA) V) sent a blistering letter to its members on Wednesday calling out other unions, dubbing them “bottom-feeding organizations” for their opposition to a controversial oil pipeline project….
He called out five “job-killing” unions by name: the Communications Workers of America (CWA), National Nurses United (NNU), the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
Hoist on your own petard isn’t as funny as hoist on your own retard, but still pretty funny. It is nice seeing SEIU thugs going after someone besides me.
So after a reasonable grand jury refused to indict,
Washington-based federal prosecutors plan to aggressively pursue charges against NYPD cop Daniel Pantaleo for the chokehold death of Eric Garner on Staten Island, a law enforcement source told The Post on Tuesday.
“It’s going to happen sooner than later,” the source said of an indictment. “Washington wants to indict him.”
Federal investigators in Brooklyn were replaced by DC counterparts because of their reluctance to bring charges, the source said.
The Dept. of “Justice”, bored with shitting, pissing and dancing on the grave of the rule of law, decided to dig up its corpse and put on a puppet show with it.
This one is confusing, who is trying to get Israel to jump into their bucket of scorpions?
The Israel Defense Forces announced that one of its soldiers was injured after being fired upon from the Lebanese border, a claim denied by the Lebanese army.
Israel has a leader and pols who are so much smarter than ours so hopefully they do not allow themselves to be sucked into stupidity. They’re much more into the Nuke the Moon strategy of letting their enemies know they’re not interested in “proportionality” or what the NY Times thinks.
For those who have quantum vehicles, there’s good news!
Someone is actually filing suit to get the “ballot selfie” law overturned.
I was going to write some about this, but there’s nothing I could say that our three readers wouldn’t realize on their own. I’m just glad I work for a company where it wouldn’t fly to be asked for a ballot selfie to confirm I voted the way my boss wants me to. Some of us aren’t so lucky.

Obama Admin Targets Soldiers’ Bonuses, Lets Bad VA Employees Keep Theirs
Now the follow-up.
The missing white stone head of baby Jesus has been returned to a Canadian church after its bright orange replacement was widely mocked.
They found Jesus’ head so they took the Baal head off.
The ridiculous change was “widely mocked”. No riots, no blown up anybody. Nothing but people like me pointing and laughing at the idiocy and cluelessness of both the people who thought it was a good idea and the people who claim Christians are where the real terrorists are. (and the Jews, but that goes without saying)
If it had been Mohamed it wouldn’t have been ‘widely mocked”, it would have been a reason for OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!
the NYTimesWashPostCNNFoxnewsABCCBSNBCetc. (excepting Hannity and maybe Bret Baier) would have been almost as OUTRAGED!!!!!! as the totally tolerant members of the Religion of Peace.
Although…having a Mohamed statue in the first place would have already drawn all that OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!
I wonder what would have happened if they had used a Mohamed head instead of Baal?
I figure some murderous terrorists would have been OUTRAGED!!!!!! at someone making an image of Mohamed and blown some people up, others would crow about their prophet being better than your God, and then blown some people up, others would have been both OUTRAGED!!!!!!! and crow about it, and then blow some people up.
That it would all be Trump’s fault also goes without saying.
Immediate, above the post, update!!!! Link to SDB’s USS Clueless archives!!!!!
Now, Back to Masks!
And the removal thereof.
This one slays me. (figuratively but literally if this guy and his spiritual brethren get their way)
Yassir Arafish had the “say one thing in English and keep the death threats in Arabic” playbook down pat, but many of fine terroristic brothers are using it as well. Why not? Our fine betters always ‘fall’ for it.
Earlier this month, Syrian ‘refugee’ Jaber Albakr committed suicide after being arrested over a plot to bomb a Berlin airport….
Alaa Albakr, the brother of the terrorist, who is seeking compensation from Germany, doesn’t believe his brother took his own life. He is basing his legal defense on Islamic teaching, as his ‘pious’ refugee-turned-terrorist brother couldn’t have killed himself because “suicide is forbidden in Islam”
Yeah, the evidence would seem to point out that the last sentence is not all that true, but them, I’m just an infidel.
Since there is still some funny left, let’s get to it.
had a totally different message for the Arabic speaking audiences.
“My response as an Arab is revenge.” said Alaa Albakr in an Arabic language video message shortly after his brother’s death. “You understand me. I don’t want to say anything further. I will come as a refugee.”
So he warned the Germans he was coming to get them (in the “I Keel You!” sense) and they put out the welcome mat. Cultural suicide isn’t funny, ‘cept it is. It’s going to be even funnier when (If?) the Germans get sick of being at everybody’s feet and start looking for some throats.
Now, it’s been obvious for a long time, unavoidably obvious since 2008, that our fine Minitrue betters have thrown off even pretense of fairness or non-bias, but this is just messed up.
Wikileaks: Journalists Dined at Top Clinton Staffers’ Homes Days Before Hillary’s Campaign Launch
They give Hillary! their donations and meet with her in cozy private meetings where they plot strategy to get Hillary! elected.
The goals of the dinner include:
(1) Give reporters their first thoughts from team HRC in advance of the announcement
(2) Setting expectations for the announcement and launch period
(3) Framing the HRC message and framing the race (I assume this is an ongoing operation V)
(4) Enjoy a Frida night drink before working more
The mask is fully off, anyone who does not see that does not want to see it and deserves nothing but contempt and derision.
I’m sick of being called names for noticing that stuff, it’s time for them to be called names for refusing to notice it. (hey Shep!)
Why the hell does the EPA need a “Diversity coordinator” much less 15 of them?
The Environmental Protection Agency is looking to hire 15 “Diversity and Inclusion Specialists,” each of whom will make $100,000 or more per year.
The agency will hire employees to set up diversity and inclusion “advisory bodies” across the country, according to a government job posting.
Federal bureaucracies are mostly about social engineering instead of their stated jobs.
Of course, with the EPA, I’d rather they used all their time in diversifying instead of mission creeping.
When farmers plow their land, it produces grooves called “furrows,” bordered by small ridges of dirt.
But in pursuit of new regulatory powers, federal agencies refer to the little dirt mounds by another term: “mini mountain ranges.” That seemingly absurd distinction is being used to impose more federal control over private land use decisions made by U.S. farmers.
Furrows are “mini-mountains ranges”? Jeez, that after regulating puddles as “waterways”.
I’d tell them they should investigate some different not-so-mini-mountains that my dog produces, but I can’t afford the $10,000/day fines they’d probably assess against me for allowing environmental dogradation.
The Dems, not happy with all that ‘freedom’ on the internet, are working on regulating every, last place that does not go along with them. This is about people on the ‘tubes who don’t charge for views.
His tweet was in response to a story about Republicans such as the Koch brothers using an internet “loophole” Ravel wants to close that allows unregulated online videos and promotions of campaigns and policies.
That ‘loophole’ is called freedom of speech, if they get to regulate it, that’ll be directed at me. Too bad our betters have decided we have too much of it (not them, just We Teh Peepul) so we know the GOP won’t do shit. They don’t like me anymore than Nancy Pelosi does. Less actually, she uses me for fund-raising and laughing at.
We tried the Tea Party, it was polite, well-behaved and neat and we were viciously attacked for it by our fine betters in the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. Now we have Trump, and they’re attacking him and us even more viciously. I wonder what’s next?
On this day in 1774, the First Continental Congress sends a respectful petition to King George III to inform his majesty that if it had not been for the acts of oppression forced upon the colonies by the British Parliament, the American people would be standing behind British rule.
Huh. What happened after that?
Obama’s on the job!
Important, Above The Fold, Depressing Update.
Steven Den Beste died.
For those who don’t know him, his USS Clueless was the most informative read on the tubes in the early days of the tubes. He had long, long posts that explained the science, engineering and history of how we got where we are.
They were long and meticulously researched. People who hated him wouldn’t be able to dispute what he wrote so they would say stupid shit like, “King Henry VIII didn’t have a long beard, it was short!!!!!!!”, you know, typical intertubes bs from losers who are angry you’ve burst their bubble.
His green energy posts were required reading for anybody wishing to debunk all the stupidity around windmills and solar panels and other idiocies we’ve been subsidizing forever. That link says his archives are gone, one of the commenters claims to have them so maybe we’ll see them online again.
He got burned out and turned to anime as Chizumatic, but he still did the occasional post on stuff he used to do.
How important was he to the early blogosphere?
Notice the puppy blender is “Free Traffic”, but USS Clueless was Broadway, the most valuable piece of real estate in the blogosphere.
Now back to our post, pretend the first thing really is first. I know I wish it still was. Steven will be missed.
First thing, a gang of ‘youths’in flash gangs attacked college students in Philly in multiple incidents, including young Mongo punching a horse. Really, dude punched a police horse.
Let’s look at 5 articles on the incidents.
Two incidents, “not related”, no identifying of the perpetrators.
4 Arrested, 150 in flash gangs, no identifying of the perpetrators.
4 Arrested, no identifying of the perps.
This one is funny, the headline says, “dozens arrested” but the body says, “handful arrested”. So which is it? No description of the perpetrators.
Flash gangs, description of injuries, 15 and 17 year olds arrested, kids are black.
a 15-year-old male was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a Temple Police officer along the 1900 block of N. Broad Street.
According to police, the officer, who police did not identify on Monday, approached the juvenile when she spotted him throwing rocks at cars along the 1600 block of N. Broad Street.
With this video.
Now, normally Shep Smith loves him any story with video, but not this one.
If it had been a gang of white kids attacking Howard University, everything we’d see today on TV would be about how Trump’s rhetoric caused these racist white folks to attack Howard.
But since it’s a gang of more than 100 black kids attacking white people in response to Obama’s and Hillary!’s rhetoric and minitrue’s egging on, not a blessed thing.
Our fine media betters, making us “safer” and “safer”.
Other thing, Walking Dead stuff below the fold. No direct spoilers, but lots of peripheral ones.
Let’s look at some conflicting stuff.
Added as I’m checking it out before posting, I didn’t stay with the theme, just put in the word”conflict” wherever it seem apt.
First, I’m all in on this. Afghans aren’t really into that whole ‘diversity’ thing.
ISIS is trying to establish a caliphate inside Afghanistan, the country’s top U.S. commander said.
The push is “principally a non-Afghan movement,” Nicholson said.
Let’s throw a few more scorpions in that bucket and then get the hell out of Dodge.
Plane crashes and bursts into flames upon take-off.
The plane — a twin-prop Fairchild Metroliner carrying three defense officials and two private contractors — was heading for Misrata in Libya and was taking part in a customs operation to track illicit human and drug trafficking routes,…
The operation that the aircraft was taking part in has been taking place for the past five months…
It was set to return to Malta within hours without landing in any other countries, officials said.
Hmmm, I wonder what happened to cause a plane to crash as it was surveilling Libyan smuggling routes. Probably just sucked a falcon into the engines.
In Austria, they’re just noting that different cultures have different rules and since boy-rape is a cultural thing, you can’t blame the poor immigrants.
In a truly shocking twist the Suptreme Court decided the grown Iraqi man may not have realised the 10-year-old did not want to be sexually abused by him.
So “nein” doesn’t mean “nein” when it’s a furriner raping a 10 year old boy? Since you usually get some funny with any endy, this makes it horrifically hilarious.
as part of a trip to encourage integration.
Methinks the integration is going the wrong direction.
It’s a good thing Austria doesn’t have a history of murderous xenophobes who want to mass-murder the ‘other’ or this might not end well!
I didn’t realize the Wash Post was going the “you have X free articles and then you have to pay us” deal route. I’ve used up my free articles (oh noes!!!!!!) so I’ll link the Kyev post that has the first couple of paragraphs with this howler at the end.
But the United States says Russia is quietly violating the treaty with a new ground-launched cruise missile, and recent reports suggest Russia may be making more of them. Russia has denied being in violation. The Obama administration has now asked for a rare meeting of a special commission established to hash out compliance issues. A violation of this magnitude, if true, cannot be overlooked; a failure to settle the issue could weaken the treaty.
Oooohhhhh, Obama WILL NOT OVERLOOK THIS!!!!!!!!!
Another red line, another murderous dictator laughing his ass off. I see that we’re going backwards in time, we were in the 90s for a long time, now we’re in the 60s.
So the 60s without the awesome cars and good music.
Eh, at least we don’t have hippies not shaving……
This one has me confused,
The Pentagon’s Joint Staff recently warned against using equipment made by China’s Lenovo computer manufacturer amid concerns about cyber spying against Pentagon networks…
…cyber security officials are concerned that Lenovo computers and handheld devices could introduce compromised hardware into the Defense Department supply chain
Can’t China just buy the info from Obama and Hillary!? I mean, China has quite the investment in the whole Dem party, this doesn’t make sense.
Unless….they’re expecting a Trump win! That’s the only thing that makes sense.
Hillary! is obviously a better candidate than Trump, she can stay on-script!
Video: Hillary Clinton reads from script during interview! WikiLeaks bombshell email MSNBC Chris Hayes Tax
As you might have figured out from the quoted text, there’s vid at the link that shows it.
As the Dept. of “Justice” is busily ignoring all the revelations of Dem felonies and vote fraud, they have their priorities straight.
While thousands of criminal aliens are being released onto the streets of Arizona, Sheriff Arpaio is the one who is facing the prospect of jail time.
Can’t have a sheriff enforcing laws! That way lies madness!!!!
Eh, we have one thing going for us on that whole, ‘invasion’ thing.
The Telegraph published a map showing the U.S. leads the world in private firearm ownership but does not even crack the Top 10 when it comes to firearm-related deaths.
Although methinks, if Hillary! wins, that trend of low gun deaths will be reversed as many gun owners start getting shot resisting arrest.
Italians have to be jealous. Fake-food hats!
Seriously, that just has to piss off Italians.
I’m not sure if I should file this under, “We are not afraid enough of the Japanese” or not.
What were you thinking marrying 7 women?
– Shoppers at a Colorado strip mall were stunned to spot a group of unusual window-shoppers — a bull elk and his seven female companions.
Eh, at least they didn’t make him hold all their purses on his antlers.
