First, some whoppers!

Shouting Match Erupts Between  Clinton and Trump aides

I guess, but that formulation is very dishonest. That’s like saying ‘Punches flew between two men’ when one was sitting there and the other ran up and started punching him and the first guy fought back.

So the Clinton asshole said

“If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost,” she said. “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”

Some asshole calls me names and I’m gonna reply. A better headline would be, “Sore-loser, Clinton surrogate picks fight with Trump surrogate.”

 

Stein recount goal raised for fourth time!

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has yet again raised the fundraising goal for an attempted vote recount in three battleground states and is currently seeking $9.5 million for the effort.

Why, it’s almost as if it’s a scam! I know, whodathunk the Green Party ran scams?!?!?!?! I mean, they’re so pure and honest and global warmmongery!

 

A  question, how is this

The decision to remove “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain and “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee came after a parent filed a complaint, WAVY reported. The parent cited excessive racial slurs as the reason for wanting the books banned, Superintendent Warren Holland told the news station.

Any different from the Taliban blowing up  idols from non-Islamic religions?

I’ll tell you how, Buddhist figures represent Buddhism, Huckleberry Finn is the opposite of racist, just like Blazing Saddles, but lefties are all knee-jerk, simplisme, non-nuancy children.

 

Obama is such a cipher. We’ve all long wondered if he’s incompetent or malicious, but for his post-POTUSy we’re going to have to wonder if he’s really that stupid. 

US President Barack Obama has urged his successor Donald Trump to stand up to Russia if it deviates from US “values and international norms”.

Mr. ‘I’ll have more flexibility after the election’ is telling Trump to stand up to Putin. After Joe Biden talked about cyber war against Russia, Obama had this to say

He also warned against a cyber arms race, saying there was clear proof Russia had engaged in cyber attacks.

What a putz.

 

This sounds far too likely.

Human rights groups have reacted with horror after EU member states approved draconian new anti-terror laws which critics have warned could be used to suppress eurosceptic movements by force.

In a rare show of universal anger seven leading civil rights movements tore into unelected Brussels bureaucrats over the shadowy plot, warning that it endangers “fundamental rights and freedoms” including the right to protest.

Betcha they wished they’d kept their guns.

The funniest part is that EUnuchstanian oligarchs won’t talk about Islamic terrorism, so you know the terrorism they’re talking about is Brexit-type stuff and probably the Jews. (They hate Jews more than they hate me).

 

This is just funny.

It’s time for the FBI to conduct a detailed investigation into the violence and political thuggery that continue to mar the presidential election’s aftermath. A thorough probe of the protests—to include possible ties to organizations demanding vote recounts—will give the Bureau’s integrity-challenged director, James Comey, a chance to sandblast his sullied badge.

Jeebus. Obama’s Dept. of “Justice” does not go after Democrats. Where has this fool been? I am happy the FBI tried to undo their whitewash in the last days of the election, but a few indictments would do a lot toward repairing the rule of law.

So I don’t expect any indictments unless Trump fires everybody GS-12 and up in the DO”J” and replaces them with Free Republic commenters.

 

A conundrum.  Chicago jails are empty and yet, crime is up!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

What’s up with that? I mean between that and outlawing guns, you’d think everything would be peaches and bourbon.

 

This one is high-larious.

Samford University recently declined to recognize a prospective Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter because of the group’s “inflammatory” anti-communist stance.

So saying bad things about a murderous ideology is verboten?

The Sharon Statement, adopted in 1960, begins by asserting that the fundamental role of government is to protect the rights and liberties of its citizens, and declares that “the forces of international Communism are, at present, the greatest single threat to these liberties,” adding that “the United States should stress victory over, rather than coexistence with, this menace.”

Ummmm, communism, by its very definition, is against individual rights. It’s right there in the fucking name. Wherever commies take over, rights go away.

 

The best reason for Trump.

With the announcement of Trump’s triumphant (Trumphant?) Carrier deal, the word that occurs to me—not for the first time—is “showman.”

Jerry Pournelle, in one of his Falkenburg’s Legion books, writes something like, ‘By the end of the 20th century, the traits necessary to become POTUS were not the traits that would make one a good POTUS.”

I was just thinking about this last night. Trump is actually the perfect POTUS. All he has to do is look good talking on TV and hire people who know what they’re doing.

Obama looked good talking on TV, but he hired a bunch of idiots and fools (and Hillary, a corrupt, foolish, ignoramus).

Bush had a good crew, so did Ronnie Raygun. Clinton had grifters and lefty idjits but he controlled the second pretty well.

    I found a copy of Farenheit 451 at the used bookstore, haven’t read it since high school… Huck Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, Set a Watchman and Uncle Toms Cabin I read last year… great books… Ray Bradbury speaks in a Coda at the end of my edition of people approaching him to change The Martian Cronicles to include more women’s roles or do over the black characters who were seen to be Uncle Toms… he flatly refused… F’451 begins with a history that sounds too familiar… of sensitive people demanding censorship..

    Regarding the fight between the campaign aides – I’m still trying to wrap my head around the concept of Republicans actually fighting back…………. I have been waiting a long, long time to see this. It feels good, it does. I can take some more of this.

  3. The Neon Madman says:

    And banning “Huck Finn” ?

    I am a huge Twain fan. The man was a genius at portraying and satirizing his contemporary society. Twain wrote in the vernacular- that is exactly how the people talked, and how they acted towards the blacks. If you can’t understand why he wrote that way, and why it is important to read it that way to understand the attitudes and mannerisms of that time, then you are incapable of understanding the importance of the book. In that case, instead of banning it, take the time to learn why so many people disagree with that……..

    (I know, I know……. lost cause. I am an cranky old curmudgeon and long past my sell-by date. I think of these kids growing up without having read Moby Dick, or Sherlock Holmes, or Poe……… )

    (Looks around. OK, I’ll go away now)

    Republicans fighting back, I know, weird.

    The newest generation are far more ignorant than previous generations, it’s been a downward slide for a while now.

    My 28 year old niece knows very little of American history, but she does know what the Kardashians had for lunch.
    And she was an A student who breezed through college and law school.

    Hell, like most kids she can only tell digital time.
    Tell a kid it’s “quarter to four” and then ask them what time that means. They’ll have no idea.

    I’ll give IFC (tv network) this, they show movies with commercials but uncut otherwise, they leave in the cussing and nudity.
    And they show Blazing Saddles.
    Since they are where Portlandia lives, that’s pretty impressive.

    The past was all “racist and sexist”. The reason that has been so succesful is also laziness, arguing those in some college or school essay is so much easier than evaluating the complex details of the past. Apparently no one under 50 reads books any more, and if they study it’s the cheat-notes summary.
