First, I love the URL, it’s wasted as the people who think gun-free zones are actually gun-free are impervious to reality.

Shooting stats in gun-free Chicago are messed up.

Shot & Killed: 61
Shot & Wounded: 335
Total Shot: 396
Total Homicides: 64

That’s May, 2016.  In gun-free Chicago.

I love this graphic

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t love what it’s showing, I love how it’s shown and the title. Chalkie. Heh.

Check out the whole thing, it’s chock full of messed up stuff in an unholy alignment of gun-free stupidity and the Ferguson Effect.

Recall I was all happy about my 79 Caballero

IMG_20160316_155956

Now I’m sorta happy and pretty unhappy.

I got it at Ideal Cars in Apache Junction, AZ.

Don’t buy anything from those scumbag assholes.

It didn’t have a spare, I noticed a few days after I bought it, they claimed they were going to get me one but finally, after  few weeks of calling them every few days, I got one myself (I also had to get a jack and lug wrench), I know I should have checked, but who thinks of a spare tire when you’re looking at a car? I actually got a Krieger that matched the REVolution wheels, but I didn’t like buying stuff that should have been in it.The stock jack is crap (according to the ‘tubes) so I got a floor jack and a 4-way lug wrench.

I also didn’t realize that the wheels on the Caballero matched the wheels on my Mustang (also pictured), except the Mustang has 18″ while the Caballero has 16″ (upped from the stock 14″), that’s kind of cool.

I did check the oil before I bought it, it looked decent and it was full, and there were no leak stains under it.

Turns out, it had bad rings and bearings so it burned 5 quarts of oil after 2,000 miles. It had a 1,500 mile, 2 week warranty.

The reason I’m sorta happy, and only sorta unhappy, at being ripped off by some scumbag car dealer is because the body is very tight and I got it cheap, so I called Summit and I have a 430hp/480ft/lbs of torque, 383 Stroker Crank crate engine (with a 750 Holley Carb) on the way.

I’ve wanted an El Camino for a long time, now I have a very tough one. Well, a Caballero, but the only differences are the nameplate stuff.

Posted: May 30, 2016 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Obama's Fault

So some Obama-phile/ “journalist” had an OP-Ed in the WSJ talking about why Obama is being treated differently from  previous presidents.

… Mr. Obama is able to avoid being a target is that he is a deft manipulator of the media, probably more skillful at it than any president ever. He heads a savvy public-relations machine that markets him like a Hollywood celebrity, a role he obligingly and successfully plays. One of the machine’s key tactics is to place Mr. Obama in as many positive news and photo situations as possible….

Yet at the same time we were seeing those nice photos, videos and articles, a lot of other important stuff was going on where Mr. Obama was hardly mentioned, seen or questioned. For example, the U.S. economy grew at a meager 0.5% in the first quarter of 2016; Russian military planes lately have been buzzing U.S. Navy ships; and China is building its military forces and expanding their reach in the South China Sea. Early in May, a Navy SEAL was killed in Iraq (the president has assured the American public that U.S. troops there, increasing in numbers, are not in combat roles). Islamic State terrorist attacks in Baghdad in recent weeks have killed scores of civilians. The Taliban are on the march in Afghanistan. The vicious war in Syria continues. The Middle East refugee crisis shows no sign of diminishing. Military provocations by Iran and North Korea keep coming.

 

 

So what is the savvy public-relations machine he heads?

One of the news media’s main jobs is to hold public officials accountable, from the president on down. But Mr. Obama is the beneficiary of news-media managers and reporters who mostly like his style and agree with his policies…

Given such a congruence of opinion, Mr. Obama’s policies don’t receive the scrutiny and analysis they should. Reporters who criticize or dig too deep are cast by the administration as spoilsports or, worse, cut off from sources….

They’re proud of it.

Today’s “journalists” didn’t get into the business to know the “real story” or any of the things journalists used to want, today’s crop of assholes got into the business to ‘change the world’.

They have to “frame” stories so the hoi polloi don’t get the wrong ideas.

Here, this idiot explains the biggest not-related-to-GOP-establishment-prick reasons why we have Trump.

With Donald Trump now the media obsession—and most in the media don’t like him—it is easy to see why Mr. Obama’s performance over the past seven-plus years is still not a major issue in the 2016 campaign. And that’s the way he likes it.

When I’m living in my cave, burning my books to cook the dog, I hope I run into a whole bunch of these “journalists”.

Hey, coyotes gotta eat too.

 

30 seconds later update!!!!!!

I found my spirit animal!!! I’m a  tiger!!!!

me as a tiger

I’ll tell you sup.

I’m a little surprised the Trump/Bernie debate isn’t going to happen. It would have been ideal for Trump and Bernie both. A whole debate where everybody bashes Hillary! and the only defender would have been if they had a Clintonista as moderator. Also, Bernie gets some people to pay attention to him. That’s important for his self-esteem.

Ace had a “It’s time for Trump haters to shut up.” post and was, I guess, viciously attacked in his comments (The deuce you say….Rude commenters at Ace’s?!?!?!?!) so he did another post about how it’s aimed at righty bloggers and pundits.

I agree. Mostly. Bashing Trump, at this point, effectively helps the opposition.

 

Who is the opposition going to be? I’m still betting on M’Shell. The Obama admin has started drip-drip-dripping out more stuff showing Hillary!’s felonious behavior.

Does anybody think that the Dems will go with Bernie if/when Hillary goes to jail?

Which is sorta funny since the whole deal started over Obama allowing our ambassador to be murdered and then ignored it so he could keep whole his narrative that he had won the war on terror but now, somehow, he’s rarely mentioned in relation to it.

 

 

A great point from the Federalist.

In DC, as I wrote about a year or so ago, the courts said they had to give out gun permits. I asked who was going to enforce this order. Corrupt DC police? The “justice” Dept? Smurfette?

Well, it’s a year later and still no permits so the Federalist notices

Less than a year ago, Kim Davis ignored a court order from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky and refused to issue a marriage license to same-sex couples. She was held in contempt of court, served five days in jail, and was ruthlessly attacked in the media.

Now the office of Karl Racine, the Washington, D.C. attorney general, has ordered D.C. government employees to ignore a court order from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The order by the D.C. District Court Judge Richard Leon was to stop denying individuals applying for a concealed-carry permit from requiring a “good reason,” and to immediately update the forms to no longer require that.

 

The DC attorney general just told a federal judge to suck his balls and our fine media betters are totes uninterested.

At the end of the article they have some blah-blah-blah from the AG’s office saying they would never, ever defy a judge. People who were denied over not having a good enough reason have to resubmit applications, using the same forms. So of course I believe this fine upstanding law enforcement official.

Oh wait, from the body of the article

After the order, I went to apply for a concealed-carry permit in the District of Columbia. The police officers there told me the D.C. attorney general’s office had ordered them to ignore the court order and continue to deny applications. Thinking there might be some kind of mistake, I contacted the AG’s office, which explicitly told me if I had a complaint about what they did I could file that complaint online.

Yeah, I know who I believe and I now what they do with that online complaint.

Forward it to the IRS of course.

 

The rule of law is dead. It’s just taking a little while to filter down to the hoi polloi. I wonder what’s going to happen when it becomes blatantly obvious to more than Dem operatives

Should be interesting.

Important Update Below!!!!!! (now with added PDF link to the ruling!!!!)

In every court case where people are trying to get the Obama admin to follow the law, the Obama folks have been basically telling the courts they can suck it. Blown up hard-drives, data discarded after its been subpoenaed and just generally missing every deadline and letting the judge know their opinion of him.

So while this is funny and it sounds IMPORTANT!!!!!, it’s about useless.

In a stunning ruling, the judge overseeing the challenge by 26 states to President Obama’s executive action in immigration has ordered all lawyers “employed at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. who appears, or seeks to appear, in a court (state or federal) in any of the 26 Plaintiff States annually attend a legal ethics course.”

Yeah, but as I”ve asked over and over, who’s going to enforce this order?

The “Justice” Dept? Federal Marshals? Congress? Powerpuff Girls?

As always, the Obama admin’s response can be summed up with, “How about you suck my balls?”

Chicago Machine Politics running rampant and getting more and more brazen.

After all, the media surely isn’t going to cover it, the “Justice” Dept is in charge of it, so who’s gonna stop them?

Federal Marshals? Congress? Powerpuff Girls?

Important Update Here!!!!!!!

Since nobody clicks links or reads comments (or posts I guess), here’s HayZeus’ comment that covered what I didn’t.

You know, I actually read the ruling myself when it came onto scribd last night (shut up) and after countless pages of ranting and raving about how the DOJ lawyers, get this, lied to him, I was more than a little let down when his remediation was ethics courses. Okay, yeah, he wasn’t gonna let them in his court again, but… ethics courses. Really? I mean, if this whole thing isn’t a billboard-sized illustration of how dead the rule of law is, then I don’t know what is.

But SJW busybodies want to do the same thing.  (via Paco)

Warning: The following post may cause severe damage to forehead, desk or keyboard.

…University of California Santa Cruz… bias reporting system to alert campus leaders that their feelings have been hurt or they have been called mean names by peers – complaints then probed by administrators.

…they will expand the program… with a seven-member administrative Bias Response Team deemed to be “the first responder to bias-related incidents.” (do they get a yellow and pink flashy light for their Bias Response Prius? V)

The team consists of the dean of students, director of counseling, campus chief of police, vice provost for academic affairs, associate vice chancellor of educational services, associate vice chancellor of safety services, and the campus diversity officer for students and staff.

 

An emergency response Bias Response Team. So what sort of things do they investigate?

a student upset because a peer said “You’re a guy. Dress like a guy.”…
a student upset because people “talk badly behind my back and text … mean things about me.”
a student upset because people clapped instead of snapped at a student govt. meeting…

 

Shit, I forgot that last idiocy. You’re not supposed to clap anymore and apparently, if you do, it’s a hate crime.

I guarantee that I will clap for the rest of my life. And if people tell me it’s a hate crime and I need to snap my fingers instead? I’ll applaud their efforts while laughing in their faces. Of course, I’ll probably be arrested over that. Such is life in this Age of Idiocy.

The first two I quoted are just dumb. Jebus. People talk about you behind your back and you need to call your university mommy to make it better?

Okay, that’s so utterly ridiculous I can’t even figure out how it makes me feel. Sorta laughing, sorta cringing, sorta just sad for the state of our civilization. These are the people who will be our next crop of “adults” who are supposed to keep the country working.

I guess I need to go to my safe space.

The some intell folks are“concerned” over what’s happening in Venezuela.

expressed doubt that unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro would allow a recall referendum this year, despite opposition-led protests demanding a vote to decide whether he stays in office.

    But the two officials, briefing a small group of reporters in Washington, predicted that Maduro, who heads Latin America’s most ardently anti-U.S. government and a major U.S. oil supplier, was not likely to be able to complete his term, (emphasis me V)

So Maduro is going to step down?

Let’s look back.

in 2013

There are two main guys under Chavez, Cabello who’s in charge of the military wing of Chavez’ dictatorship, and Maduro who’s in charge of the civilian side, I’d suggest that means, secret police. Hmmm, a civil war between the secret police and the military. Should be interesting. It’s not as if Venezuala provides anything important on the international stage like iPods or Xboxes.

 

Now, of course, the opposition guy was murdered, so the geniuses in our gov’t are trying to explain how the secret policeman and the military thug are going to step down.

For the good of the country.

in 2014

bold is quote from the linked article, rest is me from the post V)

“President Obama is sending a lawmaker whose relationship with Hugo Chavez has come under scrutiny in the past to represent the United States at the Venezuelan strongman’s funeral on Friday.”

The only way I read that is Obama’s letting whoever takes over Chavez’ thugocracy know he’s got their back.

 

 

He’s on the side of whoever hates America the most in the region. Right now, that’s Venezuela.

More from .2014.

So the secret policeman won without having to kill the military guy so it’s slimy and brutal but Obama always sides against the democracy folks and Journolist knows what their Teleprompter Jesus wants so ignore it they will.

 

As I wrote at the time, Obama is very damn transparent.

 

So is Obama malicious or stupid?

I keep going back and forth but my usual stance is that he accomplishes his malicious goal stupidly.

Case in point.

The directive comes from… the assistant secretary of education for civil rights… (and) …head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. It will put state and local officials and higher-education institutions on notice that they risk losing federal education aid if they limit students to areas or teams based on their gender assigned at birth.

With this absolutely chilling comment.

Josh Earnest says schools/states shouldn’t see Obama admin’s transgender bathroom directive as a “threat,” but instead as “guidance.”

That’s a fucked up statement.

Sure they’re suing NC, have been using the apparatus of the federal gov’t to punish their enemies and they’re threatening them with withholding money and it’s not a threat, it’s “guidance” from a stern yet fair guardian.

My only question is: Why is he trying to piss off the entire country?
