No, I’m not playing some 80s music. How about a paean to the working man in honor of Trump?

(It starts real slow, so I’ve jumped to when the music starts. Shroeder is a little bitch so they have to play without him)

 

Not as good as Hey Ya, but still pretty good.

Let’s start with some EUnuchstanian Cause totally not Effect!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now global worming is so strong it’s recordly cold in EUnuchstan, they have mostly electric heat apparently.

So in France

“Avoid sending too many emails with large attachments” is among the power-saving measures suggested to the French public in order to prevent overloading the national grid during this week’s cold spell.

France is facing fears that a national power shortage could lead to widespread cuts.

In Amsterdam,

Amsterdam and the surrounding areas were plunged into darkness at 4.15 am local time leaving at least 364,000 customers without power

That’s why I never hit “reply all”.

 

In Akbar Britain

Britain will leave the EU’s single market when it exits the EU, putting an end to speculation that London might try to seek a “soft Brexit”….

Theresa May said….

That totally did not lead to this.

Sterling rose after May…

In the minutes that followed her comment, the UK pound surged 2.5% to an 11-day high of $1.2347.

The UK pound also gained more than 1.5% to 86.69% against the euro.

Politicians can screech about anything, but people who put their money where their mouth is cannot afford to ignore reality. (You know, except for the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc., they delight in losing money, but it’s a religious contribution. Think of it as tithing).

 

In Let’s Fuck The Country As Much As Possible Before I Leave news, Obama!

First, get those political appointees in the GS crew!

President Obama rushed to fill nearly 100 federal government vacancies during a frenzy of appointments in his final few weeks in office.

Since the new year, Obama has named 72 people to federal job openings and nominated another 17 for positions requiring Senate confirmation, according to CBS reporter Mark Knoller…..

The wave of announcements includes several White House officials, who will serve well after Obama leaves office. (I doubt they’ll serve well V)

 

Dick.

Next, Let’s Get The Country Even More Riled Up And Rioting with a politicized Dept. of “Justice” report on Chicago’s Cops!

Page 2, paragraph 3: 60 ride-alongs
Given that there are 279 police beats, three watches, that’s 837 potential ride-alongs. Not to mention rapid response, traffic, 06, tact, saturation, gang enforcement, boats, horses, god knows how many administrative and undercover beats, there’s probably nearly 1,200 potential ride-alongs in a 24 hour period. The DOJ claims they spent “300 person-days” here, that’s 360,000 opportunities to ride-along.
.016% – sixteen thousandths of one percent….

In other words, people with ingrained prejudices against the police, people with histories versus the police, people whose livelihood relies on suing the police – people with axes to grind. How many of these “interviewees” fit into one or more of those categories? How many were selected at random, or did they all volunteer to come forward with their stories? We know that certain retirees who left or resigned under investigation were all to eager to sit with the DOJ to air their supposed “grievances.”

More importantly, how many of these stories fall outside the supposed window of 2011 to 2016? Some? Many? All? We don’t know because in every single example cited throughout the report, no dates are given. Some of these stories could be ten or twenty years old. Maybe more, seeing as how they bring up Burge who has been gone for almost 25 years now (Wait, they’re blaming Iowahawk now? V)

 

Listen, he needed to rush that out before he left office so they could get the conclusion that whitewashes Rahm Emmanual and the Chicago political machine. Geez, these guys are cops in Chicago, you’d think they  understand that.

 

Since the commie lost here, let’s help the one left in Cuba!

The State Department, under Obama’s direction, signed a new law-enforcement agreement with Cuba Monday that seeks to deepen America’s newfound diplomatic roots with the island nation,…

(from USA Today linked article)Notably, the agreement did not include a return of U.S. fugitives that Cuba has harbored, including New Jersey cop killers, Black Panther hijackers and Puerto Rican terrorists.

Rhodes reiterated last month that Obama’s foreign policy with Cuba has been designed to be as “irreversible” as possible for President-elect Donald Trump.

 

Fuckhead.

Obama’s taking Airforce One, not home, but on another vacay we get to pay for.

TMZ reports that the family will board a helicopter after leaving the Capitol on Friday which will take them to Andrews Air Force Base, where they will board a government plane for the trip out west.

 

The article says that Obama will have to pay to get home but I bet a  dollar that in a month, when he wants to go back to DC, it’s going to be a National Emergency That Trump Refuses To Fly Him And His Family home On Air Force One!

 

So, did Obama fail?

As the debate continues over repeal of the Affordable Care Act and what might replace it, a growing share of Americans believe that the federal government has a responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

Currently, 60% of Americans say the government should be responsible for ensuring health care coverage for all Americans, compared with 38% who say this should not be the government’s responsibility.

That’s 60% of Americans who are in favor of socialism. Cuz it’s fair.

 

The perfect Tabloid Headline For Our Tabloid POTUS!

Chelsea Handler blames the Kardashians for Donald Trump’s win

I don’t really have anything to say about that except for the perfect tabloidedness of the headline.

 

Minitrue, don’t ever change.

US, Baltic states sign military pacts as Trump uncertainty grows

Until you are all out of work.

An accurate headline would be, “US, Baltic states sign military pacts as Putin uncertainty grows” but our fine minitrue betters know who the real enemy is.

 

I bet Cleveland wishes they had loyal movers like this.

Two dozen moving companies from the San Diego area have vowed not to assist the Chargers in their move to Los Angeles. The group of movers publicly expressed their displeasure and their stone-cold commitment to not lending a helping hand on the website WeWontMoveYouChargers.com.

Heh. So long as movers don’t refuse to get Obama the hell out of the White House this is protected free speech!

 

Apparently SyFy movies have lied to me.

 

Where are the screams, the blood, the fully filled bikinis? Sonomabatch.

 

Duffel Blog has really been on a roll, The History of the Battleship in 15 Awesome Pictures!

The USS Maine was America’s second commissioned battleship. Ordered in 1886, launched in 1890 and commissioned in 1895, she was both over budget and obsolete by the time she entered service, setting a precedent for every Navy project since.

In 1898 she made her decisive contribution to victory in the Spanish-American War by exploding at anchor in Havana….

…saw the development of the “battlecruiser,” which had the armament of a battleship but not its protection. Relying solely on speed, it was basically the equivalent of walking up to Tito Ortiz while thinking: “What if I just hit him as hard as I can and then run?”

….“the most successful type of capital ship yet designed.” Today she is best known for the footage of her destruction after being torpedoed by a German submarine in November 1941, shown above in Movietone News, and shown below in the 1989 music video for the Red Hot Chili Peppers cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”.

…Like the USS Maine, this event (Pearl Harbor V) reinforced the relevance of the battleship’s role in galvanizing the American public for war by blowing up at anchor.

Read the whole thing, it’s high-larious.

Thanks to neal for reminding me about this excellent song, let’s listen to some 70s Stones.

 

That’s the stuff that doesn’t get played on Classic Rock Stations!!!!!! cuz they’re too busy playing the same 124 songs over and over and over.

 

Well, it’s that week. The week that Obama does his worst to America with all of our fine media betters freaking out about Trump.

A recap of that hard-hitting story that CNN put out about how Trump loves him some Russian hookers.

Guess who started it? No, not John McCain,

In September of 2015 someone — now revealed as a Jeb Bush Super PAC donor — paid Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C. outfit, to compile a dossier of dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion engaged Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 agent in London, to do the job. While early accounts of the story refer to him as a “respected source”, he has a history of dumpster diving for Democrats.

He just got it from his establishment prick buddies and passed it on. I did find a picture of Trump with Russian hookers.

trump

Should I send it to McCain?

 

Now, anything anybody says about what Trump’s “Going To Do!!!!!!!!!” is a not-very-educated guess. Nobody knows. But this could be true.

Foreign governments will be encouraged to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances, as many are already turning off money spigots to the scandal-scarred group, The Post has learned.

Mostly because I’d think it’s the pissed off foreign states pushing it because they want a piece of flesh for their, now useless, huge bribes.

 

Trump is scaring the Germans! Oh Noes!!!!!!!!

Only one guy seems to have a clue.

“I think the interview has left everyone scratching their heads because it’s not clear what the policies of the future US president are,

 

You fools might want to wait and see before freaking out. Or not, having EUnuchs run around screeching over Trump as Obama and Tsar Putin I get their warfaces on in Poland and the Baltics is pretty funny.

 

Let’s go to Legal Insurrection for two.

Representatives of 70 nations showed up for a peace conference to get peace between Israel and Terrorstan.  So, how did it go?

That conference brought 70+ nations together to discuss terms of peace between Israel and the Palestinians, without either party being present.

I bet swimmingly! Because having the International Community sign a peace deal  worked so well in Sudan.

As with anything in the “Peace Process!!!!!!”, it’s a weapon against Israel.

The Paris peace conference was intended to advance the international assault on Israel’s legitimacy, playing up the Palestinian narrative that settlements, not Palestinian intransigence, were mostly responsible for the lack of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. It was expected that the final communique from the conference, which would have reiterated the “flagrant violation” language, would have been a formalized in a second UNSC resolution.

However British Prime Minister Theresa May stepped up and sent a low level delegation to the conference, which refused to sign on to the final communique. (A spokesman for the government had blasted Kerry’s post resolution speech, in which he tried to justify the abstention, saying that it was wrong to be “focusing on only one issue,” namely the settlements, in seeking peace, when “the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians is so deeply complex.” The statement also took Kerry to task for “the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally.” The statement criticizing Kerry also reiterated that bilateral negotiations were the only way to achieve peace.)

Good on the Brits. The outgoing administration are as vile a group as any that does not specifically include Harry Reid.

 

Don’t Worry! Tom Sawyer and his friends are investigating Comey over the DO”J” telling him to let Hillary off!

There will similarly be no inquiry into why the Justice Department allowed subjects of the investigation (who had been granted immunity from prosecution) to appear as lawyers for the main subject of the investigation – despite ethical and statutory prohibitions on such conduct. Nor, evidently, will the IG be probing why the attorney general furtively met with the spouse of the main subject of the investigation – the spouse who just happens to be the president who launched the attorney general to national prominence by appointing her as a district U.S. attorney in the Nineties – on an airport tarmac just days before Mrs. Clinton submitted to a perfunctory FBI interview, after which came Comey’s announcement that charges would not be filed.

 

Listen, Aunt Polly’s fence isn’t going to whitewash itself!

 

This is messed up. I wonder how much insurance costs RR companies who have to drive through Chicago?

In the last five years, trains have been robbed in Chicago more than 400 times. It can take a train a full day to get through Chicago… as they roll into the city, they wind up stopping on tracks in very dangerous neighborhoods. Gangsters and thugs simply take bolt cutters and open up the cars like metallic Christmas gifts. And a lot of those train cars contain guns and ammo. No security… just arms ready made for the streets of the Windy City.

Last November, a half a dozen semi-automatic rifles and 27 handguns were…

 

A slow-moving, open air market for pillagers. It’s like Walmart except the prices are even lower and we all pay for it!

I bet I know why they don’t have guards, they’d need to be very well armed and it’s illegal to have a gun in Chicago.

 

Now, while this would make me laugh, I don’t think so.

The news media, as we have known it in the three quarters of a century since World War II, is disappearing much faster than we realize.  It might soon be extinct.

We need news services for foreign correspondents, if for nothing else. Sure bloggers can pick up the slack, but you really need a news organization and sooner or later one is going to come out that wants to make money instead of push a viewpoint.

Foxnews was pretty good for a while, but now all they have for decent journalists, as far as I am concerned, are the main financial people (although Neil Cavuto has his Establishment moments), Bret Baier, Catherine Herridge and Harris Faulkner (added), the rest are blow-dried teleprompter morons and/or lefties. I thought Martha MacCallum was a journalist for a while, but she hates Trump too much.

Herridge, who I called “Molly Hemingway” in previous posts, was the one who got most of the Hillary email leaks and reported them  on Bret Baier’s show, forcing the rest to follow suit. Without those two, the rest of minitrue might have been able to ignore it.

 

The California High-Speed Money Burning project, which hasn’t actually started, is already $billions over budget and 7 years behind schedule.

Now, over budget is a given (like the Dem-piggy bank/Big Dig), but it takes a California politician to be 7 years behind projection on a project they haven’t actually begun. That takes real idiocy, ignorance and a desire to push on no matter what hassles reality throws at you.

 

This is a pretty good bit on California global warmmongering, but I’m quoting it for this bit that could include any Dem pol.

Brown demanded that Obama institute a permanent ban on offshore drilling. Offshore drilling might even produce enough money to fund his high-speed rail obsession. But math and Moonbeam have never been on speaking terms. He doesn’t have policies. He has dreams.

And those are some expensive dreams.

 

 

 

Important, Five Minutes Later, Hilarious Update Below!!!!!

It’s Time To Face Facts: Obama’s Presidency Was A Failure!

The closing arguments for the Obama years are arriving, and they aren’t helping the outgoing president.

He then goes on to list all the things that Obama made worse.

But the real way to figure out if he was a failure depends on what he was trying to accomplish, doesn’t it?

He has the bureaucracy, indeed pretty much all of the non-military branches weaponized for Democrats (Comey will replace the Russians as the reason Hillary lost I figure, couldn’t happen to a slimier piece of shit). He replaced so many generals  that the military is more worried about diversity, celebrating non-traditional gender identity and saving Gaia than keeping our enemies from killing us.

He (well, Pelosi and Reid) managed to get Obamacare, that the GOP is trying to figure out how to perform failure theater over. He flooded the country with people antipathetic to the whole idea of America as a bastion of freedom, aided and abetted by a GOP that calls me racist for being against people breaking our laws, much of the “elites” have even more contempt for America than the immigrants and they’re in a better (worse) position to enact their desires on us and they’re not going down easily.

Trump is a good start, but it’s only a beginning. We’re going to have to keep fighting. As soon as we stop paying attention, they’ll start their shit. The establishment pricks in the GOP are busy working on whopping up a quick impeachment. They can work with Pence. The media will help them.

Luckily Trump is pretty well immunized against their OUTRAGE!!!!!! because they turned it up to 11 way too soon.

So did Obama fail?

If you don’t like a strong, free America, I’d say it’s a qualified “No”. We’re diminished in the world and fractured at home, ripe for demagogue pols to exploit.

Qualified because Trump is a (mostly life-long Democrat) demagogue pol that was raised by the fracture.

The other problem is that we have troops everywhere we need them to kick some ass and I don’t see Trump/Mattis/Tillerson being all nation-buildy after they get done kicking some asses.

Also, despite lefty hyperventilating, Trump is a fairly milquetoast right wing pol.

I’d expect the next to be much more Jacksonian, hopefully we can keep the racist/totalitarian shit out, but (s)he won’t be ready to play the role of good loser to our fine lefty betters. But that won’t be Obama’s fault, that’ll be the fault of the people who are going to fight to stay our overlords, ruling without our consent or aggreement.

 

If you’re a fan of America and the Constitution, I’d say this is much more your opinion on Obama’s ‘success’.

my_work_here_is_done_mugs

 

This is a bunch of actors singing I Will Survive in light of Trump’s upcoming inauguration. They’re not sure if they will survive, but they’re going to soldier through despite all the trials and tribulations of living in a Malibu beach house!

 

What makes it for me is most of these super-serious, super-actors have to read their super tough lines from a page in their hands. Such difficult lyrics as “I will survive.” The hardest one was, “I kept thinking that I could never live without you by my side” and she couldn’t take her eyes off the page.

 

Game Went South Quick

Posted: January 14, 2017 by veeshir in HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!, Win!

I thought Houston had a chance, but that should be that.

Kudos to Atlanta, I didn’t think Matty Ice had it in him. If they play like that, whoever wins tomorrow is in for a rough next week.

So anyway, some stuff on my tabs.

If the Clinton Influence Peddling Racket was a charity, why is it shutting down now that she has no influence to peddle?

It’s funny how hard it is to find stories about that, but I found a couple, including one from Bloomberg.

That’s one of the things that bothers me most about today’s “journalists”, most of them pretend to believe lies like that was anything but an influence peddling racket/bribe laundering scheme/tax dodge. They made bribes tax-deductible.

I will say it’s awesome they won’t have that revenue stream anymore.

 

I was just thinking something very paranoid. I don’t believe it at all, but I wonder how widespread this conspiracy theory is being spread.

Obama started wars all over the world, put the US military in all those places and now Trump gets to have all the wars the military-industrial complex could want but couldn’t get what with Iraq-war-weariness. Only Obama could get away with that because the media was too busy sucking him off to look up at what he was actually doing.

With the added bonus that they get an immediate boost as Trump has to increase spending/buying systems to get the military the equipment for all the wars they’ll be fighting. Equipment that will get blown up and need to be replaced. It’s genius.

What made me write about this bit of too much paranoia was this. (puppy blender is bolded)

IF TRUMP IS REALLY HITLER, WHY IS OBAMA EMPOWERING HIM? Obama Opens NSA’s Vast Trove of Warrantless Data to Entire Intelligence Community, Just in Time for Trump.

Which is kind of funny and endy if you think about it.

We Teh Peepul were all pissed off. So They trotted out Trump to say a bunch of shit to get us all riled up and on his side and elected to keep us under control.

I can imagine the meeting where someone suggested they use Trump for the part (Probably Trump himself). How they laughed. I bet the Duke brothers owed him a dollar.

 

Coupla Dave Barry chucklers.

I told him not to get Feit of Sum Yung Gai.

Ace links Newseak cuz I ain’t gonna.

Have we been unclear?

INSTINCTIVELY OR BY CANNY PLAN, Trump converted the conservatives’ parochial and rate-limiting culture war on abortion and gay marriage into a much more visceral campaign against the political pieties of sophisticated America,

Obviously, we have.

Or….they’ve been too parochial and rate-limited in culture to see what’s been going on in the rest of America for a decade or more so now we have Trump. To make it clear.

And yet still they don’t seem to get it. Trump did not direct his wave, he rode it. He saw where it was going and said, “Hey, that could make me POTUS!”

 

This is going to help tremendously.

In a letter to leading Senate Democrats, Walter Shaub, Jr., the ethics office director, said the busy hearing schedule had overwhelmed his office….

“..a letter to leading Senate Democrats…” Not to Trump. Obviously just an impartial Democratic operative going about his sworn duty to undermine America if a Democrat loses an election.

I am not aware of any occasion in the four decades since OGE was established when the Senate held a confirmation hearing before the nominee had completed the ethics review process,” said Shaub, who was appointed by President Obama to his position in 2013.

So why are you slow-rolling your review process? Oh, I’m not supposed to ask that?

It’s all UN-PREC-EDENTED!!!!!!!

In 2009, the Democratically controlled Senate confirmed seven of President Obama’s Cabinet picks in a single day.

You know, except it’s fully precedented.

This is why we have Trump.

Now they’re trying to find out what we get after Trump.

Nobody wants to see that.

 

Because I think it could be a lot like this.

A group of obese rodents surrounded three-year-old Finley Renouf, at Tehidy Country Park, in Cornwall, and then pounced on him….

At least two other youngsters were also attacked.

You know, they make dogs for that.

 

This isn’t really funny, except in concept.

Two google home units have been arguing for a few days.

 

I wonder what would happen if you got Alexa or Siri to mix it up. Siri didn’t like me asking her about Android, somehow I’d bet she likes google even less.

Trump!

Posted: January 12, 2017 by veeshir in The Funniest Middle Of Civilization Ever!, Trump

Before I start, I’d like to ask a question about Victor Davis Hanson. Why doesn’t anybody link this page or comment there? Am I going to get in trouble for breaking some Internet-wide, “Pretend that site doesn’t exist because it makes us look bad.” rule?

 

As I’ve watched Trump I’ve become more and more optimistic. In foreign policy,  Sec State, he has a guy who was in charge of what has been one of the biggest, most geographically diverse, politically powerful corporations in the world for many decades. Hell, in the recent past, they’ve basically owned countries. They probably still pretty much run a bunch of oil producer countries while buying Rolls Royces, palaces and Swiss bank accounts for their putative rulers.

Mattis as Sec Def is far more awesome than I even hoped. Seriously, Chuck Norris wears Mattis pajamas. That’s making the world worried. Rather, all the right people worried. Tsar Putin I cannot stare down Mattis. Let him ride a grizzly to the meetings, Mattis gets kinda hungry at long meetings and he loves him some grizzly liver. Still warm and dripping.

Flynn as NSA is hugely embonering too.

I figure after a few times of Flyinn saying, “Sic ’em!” to Mattis, people will be far more willing to listen to Tillerson when he tells them to sit down and shut up. We don’t need Congress to send troops to half the world since they’re already in most of the places we need them. SoKo, Iraq, Syria, South China Sea, Taiwan, the Arabian peninsula and Kuwait.

Am I missing some places that need an application of Marines and A-10s, followed by them leaving and saying, “You really don’t want us to come back”?

I was actually more confident in him for domestic policy cuz he’s a business man, he’s watched what happened to screw our nation up over the last 3+ decades, I figured he’d have an idea on how to fix it. Because he fix it he wants. I’m sure of that. I was worried about furrin policy. Now, I think I’ll be able to sit back and just enjoy the continuation of our civilization instead of trying to laugh as it ended.

So anyway, VDH has a post on Trumpism. It’s pretty darn good and mostly what I’ve been starting to think. (Hope?)

Note the common denominator to the all these hostile groups: It is Trump the man, not Trump the avatar of some political movement that they detest. After all, there are no Trump political philosophers. There is no slate of down-ballot Trump ideologues. If Trump were to start a third party, what would be its chief tenets? There is as yet neither a Trump “Contract for America” nor a Trump “First Principles” manifesto.

Now normally I’m agin the Knight In Shining Armor, but right now we need the knight or a whole shitload of pitchforks and barrels of tar.

Besides, there’s no political movement that has any coherence that wants to fix things, most of the settled ones want their piece.

Trumpism promotes traditionalism. Trump showcases “Merry Christmas!” because his parents did. He believes in dressing formally and being addressed as Mr. Trump. And he insists that his children be well-behaved and polite….

Perhaps Trump is like many Baby Boomers as they enter their final decades: …Similarly, Trump is a non-practicing moralist who believes traditional morality can restore structure and guidance to society.

To quote Bill Cosby (can I still do that?), “That’s an old person trying to get into Heaven!”

The billionaire Trump won by going after elites of both parties

And it was bee-you-tee-full! These are people he’d bribed and wined and dined for decades and he smeared mud in their faces and made them sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider song.

I’ve tried not to quote too long a bit, but this encapsulates Trump (IMIO)

By “elites,” Trump certainly did not mean plutocrats like himself or the various grandees he has appointed to his cabinet.

How does he square that circle? For Trump, there are apparently good elites like himself and then the rest, the bad elites. The dividing line is not income, status, or lifestyle per se, but whether one advocates one thing for others and quite another for oneself. Trump is rich and unabashedly likes what riches can bring, and he claims that he wants average Americans to have their own version of a Trump Tower existence.

He is not Al Gore urging Middle Americans to drive less while he flies on his Gulfstream private jets, or Barack Obama who loves exclusive, expensive Sidwell Friends prep school for his own children but opposes charter-school choices for the less fortunate, or a Senator Barbara Boxer who lives in an irrigated desert oasis but seeks to stop contracted water transfers for those who grow food rather than lawn turf.

Perzactly. In every respect. Trump wants everybody with the gumption to be stinking rich. Oh, and emphasis, underlining and coloring by me.

If true (and I think it is), this next bit is going to be the most entertaining thing in decades.

In the next four years, expect a continual war on intellectuals and academics …

So it is not privilege that Trumpism targets, but rather the hypocrisies of privilege,

That’s going to be fucking hilarious. Not the “war on intellectuals” that our fine media betters will trumpet, but war on the hypocrisy of these not-so-intelligent intellectuals.

 

In other words, expect Trumpism to champion fracking, logging, Keystone, “clean” coal, highway construction, the return of contracted irrigation water to its farmers, the retention of federal grazing lands for cattlemen…

Imagine a POTUS who tried to do things that created jobs? If he does even some of the things Obama has stopped to retard economic growth, we’re going to be in boom times in a fucking year. It’s gonna be fucking hilarious watching Minitrue try to explain how Obama’s Recovery Summer kicked in!!!!!!!

Trump admires people who make money. He doesn’t buy that those, to take one example, with Ph.D.s and academic titles could have made money if only they had wished—but for lots of reasons (most of them supposedly noble) chose not to. For Trump, credentialed academic expertise in anything is in no way comparable to achievement in the jungle of business…

He might not quite say that a Greek professor is inherently useless,…

 

I’m gonna need a lot of saltpeter to treat my simple, chronic, boner for the next few years.

 

Look around. Here it comes.

It’s just our national nervous breakdown.

 

Here’s how fake news works. McCain gives some blatantly faked deal to one of Obama’s Trump-haters in the Dept. of “Justice”, they brief Trump on it saying, “People who hate you  (Like McCain and..well, the intelligence community) are going to be doing shit like this to you in the future. Be prepared.”

The stupidity is published as accurate. Minitrue does their thing and next thing you know, basic facts are obfuscated.

Here we have Allah saying,

NBC claimed yesterday that the synopsis was prepared but not shared with Trump, and furthermore that it was prepared merely as an example of “disinformation,” potentially to show him how unreliable private intelligence is.

Yeah, they try to make it hard to figure out what happened, but it was shared with Trump,  move the word “potentially” and the sentence reflects reality.

He’s talking about the Clapper thing, here’s a different take on the intelligence brouhaha culminating with Clapper’s letter.

I haven’t seen a lot of follow-up about that (well, except now for the main headline on Drudge), but it’s very clear that Trump just nailed the existing Intelligence agencies for leaking this information. He knows it, and they know it. And guess what happens less than 12 hours later? (Clapper’s letter saying, ‘Our bad’ V)

Trump is a huckster, but he’s smart and can accurately model reality and act accordingly. He’s also used to dealing in the highest circles of competence in the world, now he’s in the US gov’t. That’s like training for the NFL and playing in the Lingerie League.

Well played, President-Elect Trump. I suspect we may see some top-level housecleaning when Dan Coats (Director of National Intelligence and Clapper’s replacement), Mike Pompeo (Director of the CIA) and Gen. Mike Flynn (National Security Advisor) are confirmed and in place

How beautiful would it be if our gov’t was actually run by people who care more about reality and helping America than giving money and power to leftist groups?

 

Let’s do some a couple fake news items. Without hovering over the link, try to see if they’re parody or satire or meant to be believed.

Nancy Pelosi says Obamacare was bi-partisan legislation.

Mattis attends confirmation hearing wearing only Spartan helmet and ‘Fuck ISIS’ boxers

Maybe when Trump is done, stories like the first will be parody and ones like the second will be accurate.

 

In, Scandal-Free Obama news, Fast and Furious.

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm.

Too bad none of our fine media betters are covering this.

Check that, thank goodness they aren’t. They’d hide that it was Obama selling the gun and use it as an excuse to try to take my guns.

 

Lots of chucklers and near chucklers today, so let’s start with one that makes me laugh.

A few years ago I opined on the nature of Pluto and its moons.

Maybe there are hydrogen oceans with CO2 sands and probably little water ice mountains with helium snow so the people who live there ski in the morning (about 487 of our days long) and then have pina colodas beachside in the afternoon (also 487 days long, happy hour is a bear there).
It gets cold at night I bet.

Now, I feel vindicated.
