These days it just sucks knowing what’s coming.
So the French are finding huge, militarized al Quaeda camps in Mali, complete with heavy weapons and various terroristical suicide belt stuff and whatnot, but that’s not why I’m linking it. This is.
We are 70 percent there … but we must do 100 percent,” Le Drian said yesterday. “The mission given to our forces by the President of the Republic is to succeed in liberating all Malian territory … so there will be more combat.”
Holy Chit Meng! That’s the French talking about winning a war! Although…. French “help” doesn’t come cheap. Maybe they want their colony back. They do that sort of thing in Africa.
Interesting article on China trying to be Da Man in the Pacific rim. Well, not so much ‘interesting’ as pretty funny.
Why has the Chinese government, especially the People’s Liberation Army, appeared more aggressive, self-confident and assertive in dealing with the US and its allies?…
This “unrelenting strategy” first calls for China to confuse its opponent’s judgments; second, create and induce internal conflicts within its opponent; and third, deepen the opponent’s existing internal conflicts before launching an offensive attack.
They seem to think it’s all Sun Tzu strategery. That’s like saying the Road Runner uses Clausewitz to defeat Wile E. Coyote. You see, it’s Obama’s relentless strategery to confuse America’s judgments (by siding with the dictator against the democracy), to create and induce internal conflicts (by balkanizing America), and deepen the existing internal conflicts (gun control, attack the rich, kill whitey, etc.) which emboldens China.
This bit is what makes it funny.
as the Chinese Communist Party seeks to reduce Washington’s influence in Asia.
Ummmm, dude? That’s Obama’s goal too.
Which leads us to the Norks cutting off communication with South Korea. But I can’t tell if it’s the normal, “Give us food!!!” temper tantrum or something China told them to do.
Pyongyang has also threatened to cut off a hotline with UN forces (read, US. V) in South Korea, at the border “truce village” of Pammunjom.
Cutting off talking with us could lead to war, which the Norks and their Chinese masters don’t seem to really want. Yet.
This one is pretty cool. Japan and the Philippines are acting like allies. And not The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere sort of allies, but actual allies against the war-threatening, murderous commies in China.
As Japan’s war of words with China continues to escalate, it’s beginning to move closer to another former rival—the Philippines. Last month, Tokyo announced plans to donate 10 brand-new patrol boats to the Philippine Coast Guard. Later in the month, the two countries met to discuss further expanding their maritime cooperation in the contested waters of the South China Sea.
Cool. They’re realizing they can’t count on us for at least another 4 years.
Speaking of intimidation by commie dictators, let’s go to America!
First up, we see politicians going after sheriffs who refuse to lie for them, this time in CO.
According to El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, the vast majority of the 30 Sheriffs who made the trip to the Capitol, last week, came to testify in support of the second Amendment. Unfortunately, the rules were changed so that only one Sheriff could testify on a bill. Maketa claimed that CO Democrats were pressuring pro-gun sheriffs in the state with tactics that border on extortion. In an email he received, last week, he said the Democrat Senate majority leadership had threatened to stop or stall pay raises to the state’s elected sheriffs if they refused to support Colorado’s pending gun control legislation.
The only problem is that it’s making NJ jealous, so they have to go one better.
Said Hart “I tried to express my opinion and tell them that my Constitutional rights had been violated. I began quoting the Constitution, line by line…
Yeah, so how’d that work out for you? (as if we all didn’t already know)
When the Harts left the gathering, they were followed into the parking lot of the community center, and the same young man who had been so upset by Ms. Hart’s comments in the community center, started screaming and shouting at her, took down the license plate number of her vehicle and said – “See if you are able to pay your property taxes NOW!”
So obviously some pro-dictator types didn’t like it. No big deal. Just some loon yelling, right? Geez, you really need to pay more attention.
When they arrived, there were 5 police cars from the Franklinville Police Department. They advised her that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations….
Her purse was taken from her and she was put into a “paddy wagon,” transported to the police station-…
She was arrested and booked for “terroristic threats” and “contempt.”
At the police station, she was handcuffed to a chair.
It’s a terrorist threat to discuss the Constitution with dictators. Duh.
IMO, a whole bunch of people need to go to jail over this and none of them are the lady who dared to open her mouth.
A little more endy before we get to the funny.
Samizdata’s quote of the day (Quote of the week at least IMO, but it’s their blog and they decide that kind of stuff V).
For the first time in recorded history, we have nearly every central bank printing money and trying to debase their currency. This has never happened before. How it’s going to work out, I don’t know. It just depends on which one goes down the most and first, and they take turns. When one says a currency is going down, the question is against what? Because they are all trying to debase themselves. It’s a peculiar time in world history.
“Peculiar” is one way of putting it. Funny and endy is how I put it.
For the record, I hate Starbucks’ products, I like skim milk in my cappuccino, I don’t like their burnt coffee and I really don’t like the way I have to use their terminology in order to order a fucking coffee, but I love their stand on the 2nd Amendment and this is beautiful.
Monday is the last day New Yorkers will be able to buysuper-sized sugary drinks in New York City.
The cola crackdown goes into effect on Tuesday. …
Starbucks announced it plans it will continue offering 20 ounce venti-sized drinks because of the milk content. Like Dunkin’ Donuts, customers will also be able to add their own sugar.
Geez, now I have to go get some espresso and maybe a pastry. So how did their Nannarch take it? Heh, we all know.
Speaking Sunday on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg called Starbucks’ plan “ridiculous.”
“Starbucks knows how to market things, knows how to package things,” he said. “They can change instantly when it’s in their interest to do so.”
How dare they pretend they live in America! Their Nannarchs know what’s in their interest. It’s not their decision, it’s Bloomberg’s!
Heh. Heh I say. (I forget where I saw this, one of the news aggregators I think). It’s about the Space and Science Research Corporation who, like the Farmer’s Almanac, have the temerity to pay attention to the Sun when discussing the Earth’s climate. I know, anti-science.
The SSRC and its President, Mr. John L. Casey, have an established record of accuracy in climate change predictions using the Relational Cycle Theory or RC Theory of climate change, a theory based on solar cycles as the main drivers behind the Earth’s variations in climate.”
Jeez, so you try to model reality? How is that gonna prove WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!?
In the Executive Summary, the SSRC report authors show convincing evidence that the Earth’s atmospheric and oceanic temperatures are on a long term temperature cool down as a result of the just started reduction in the Sun’s energy output. Called a “solar hibernation,” this rare and powerful natural cycle of the Sun has been shown to bring long and potentially dangerous cold climate eras to the planet.”
That highlights the biggest problem with Global Warmmongering, you’re attacked if you do real science and that article will be ignored by all the right people, it might interfere with the lucrative Global Warmmongering industry.
This Ain’t Hell has one niche that’s important, they’re big on Stolen Valor. Which is when PX Rangers and other liars claim to be a 182nd Airborne Green Beret Ranger with the Victoria Cross and then try to make money off those lies. So TAH gets attacked for highlighting these lying pieces of shit. Their response?
I don’t care that Dick Stoops didn’t get into the Missouri National Guard Hall of Fame, based on his lies, either. I don’t care that Ike Densmore killed himself because of his lies. I don’t care that Todd Hamilton‘s charity fell to pieces.
What I do care about is that people understand that there are now consequences for their bad behavior. Apparently most people weren’t taught that by their parents, I guess that part of their childhood development is left to TAH.
Good for them. Too often in our society no good deed goes unpunished, it’s nice to see assholes find consequences meeting actions.
They’re not against some labels.
A few days ago I received a personal email solicitation from a senior person at the organization No Labels asking, “Would you be open for 15 minutes to hear progress on No Labels?” The group advocates bypassing ideological gridlock, working together across the aisle, and all of us rolling up our sleeves and solving problems in Congress, government, and society at large.
They’re just trying to say they’re In The Middle and not partisan. Unlike those meanies on the Right in the Hitler party!
Someone doing the journalism our social, moral and intellectual betters in Minitrue refuse to do.
Schakowsky: We’re on a roll now, and I think we’ve got to take the–you know, we’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.
Mattera: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?
Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun… something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.
Goals, they has them. (and those goals include gaols and chains).
You know for a crew who claim to be cool, they surely do a lot of things that require they be ridiculed. The latest is #askflotus.
Hi #AskFLOTUS Was Barack with you on 9/11/12 during #Benghazi…Asking for about 300 million or so people. Thanks.
Let’s end on the Question Of The Day!
What do you think about President Obama’s decision to pardon the sequester and send it to Portugal?”
The answers are funnier than the question.
