No really, that’s a real question.

Let’s Find Out The Answer!

 

As we’re being overrun by wymyn AIs in our electronics, these people decided to go the too funny to be funny route.

Women have been made into servants once again. Except this time, they’re digital.

Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google’s Google Home peddle stereotypes of female subservience—which puts their “progressive” parent companies in a moral predicament.

So far it’s still sorta funny. I mean, they’re so worried about empowering wymyn that they’re worried about electronic servants pushing stereotypes, but this is where it gets too funny.

People often comment on the sexism inherent in these subservient bots’ female voices, but few have considered the real-life implications of the devices’ lackluster responses to sexual harassment.

That’s the part of the dystopian fantasy where you think, “The author has run out of ideas.” They’re worried about sexually harassing a phone. No, they’re worred about sexually harassing a fucking telephone.

Via the emperor, where you can read more serious commentary on this too ridiculous story.

 

The tubes were too predictable today, I only got a couple links with my surf but Doug Ross had some good stuff so here we go.

 

Russian Trolls Buzzfeed And You Won’t Believe How!

Buzzfeed is trying to get the lawsuit dismissed, and plaintiffs Aleksej Gubarev, XBT Holdings S.A., and Webzilla, Inc. filed a hilariously titled opposition to Buzzfeed’s motion. In a clear troll job, the court filing is titled, “SIX WAYS BUZZFEED HAS MISLED THE COURT (NUMBER TWO WILL AMAZE YOU) … AND A PICTURE OF A KITTEN.”

Okay, that one was not too funny to be funny. It was just right.

 

This was funny, but now it’s not.

A poll published by CBS News on Wednesday found 40 percent of respondents believe Russia interfered with the election to help President Trump win.

Just 13 percent of Republicans believe Russia meddled in the election, while 67 percent of Democrats said Moscow interfered.

Our fine media betters have been spending so much time on pushing this lie that it’s gone beyond pathetic and funny to dangerous.

 

This was sorta funny when they had Farfour the Mouse killed by some damn, dirty Jews, but it’s not funny that the UN agrees with them.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas wish to continue teaching children that the conflict with Israel is not over a two-state solution, but the “liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea,” which means the annihilation of Israel. The goal is for the students to believe that Israel is one big settlement that has no place in the Middle East.
Along with Hamas, Abbas and his PA plan to continue inculcating Palestinian children with the idea that they should look to terrorists who kill Jews as their role models. It might be illuminating if the conversation between Trump and Abbas were to be informed by these uncomfortable facts.

Farfour was funny, terrorists were so afraid of Disney they had Jews kill off their Mickey Mouse copy. Now they’re just demanding the right to kill Jews as EUnuchs and UNiks are saying, “Jews don’t want a two-state solution!”

 

The possibilities on this one are endless.

Is this actually too funny?

 

 

From the Barrel Of a Gun! (.45acp gun, not that wimpy 9mm crap)

 

I know this one is too funny to be funny.

Because that’s just so predictably stupid.

 

 

 

 

 

And counter revolution.

Let’s start with this bit of countering the revolution. This quote is from a former Obama apparatchick.

I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more.  We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to [Democrat politicians].

She got so comfortable, it was just like sitting at home and telling all her moonbat friends about how they broke the law to Get Trump!!!!!.

So Obama helped Dem pols get the info to hurt his successor and, as per her comment, they still have access to the their intelligence.

So many felonies, so little brains.

 

 

Their peasants are revolting!

On Tuesday, the state of California charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress on 15 felony counts over their undercover reporting regarding Planned Parenthood.

They smell too.

15 felonies for exposing the state religion.

Does California still burn heretics at the stake?

 

There’s a more mainstream dude than Marine Le Pen opposing the French oligarchs, he’s been being investigated by EUnuchs too. Now they’re going after his wife. 

French magistrates have placed the wife of presidential candidate Francois Fillon under formal investigation over allegations that he paid her for a fake parliamentary job.

For doing what, I’m sure, all French EUnuchs do.

Well, there’s probably one difference since it’s France. They probably don’t have just their spouses on the payroll, they have their mistresses and gigolos on the payroll.

 

Since there’s such a brouhaha going on over illegal immigration, Chicago felt the need to counter any revolutionary thinking.

Neighbors are calling for an investigation after a northwest side man was shot in his home by ICE agents.

Felix Torres, 53, was shot in the arm by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents around 6:20 a.m. Monday. The agents were attempting to arrest a different person who lived in the home, and said someone pointed a weapon at them.

Just a law-abiding immigrant, looking to make a better life for him and his family.

Not only were guns found, neighbors revealed to authorities that one of the people in the house is suspected of being involved in a different neighborhood shooting just a short time ago. So not only are democrats supporting the open disobedience of Federal Law and the near-shooting of Federal authorities, they are doing this to protect known shooters in the neighborhood that are driving the homicide rate.

So this law-abiding criminal had evil, illegal guns too.

Why is it that lefties have spend all their gun-grabbing time trying to take my guns and appear unconcerned about these illegal guns in a criminal’s hand?

Cuz I don’t vote Dem. Duh.

 

This is all about Teh Awesome. Recall the community college where a student shared a vid of a rant by an unhinged prof and the college suspended the student and demanded he write a suitable, Soviet-style, confession. They were forced to back down.

What to do when the proles force their betters to give up their principles?

Orange Coast College has given its top award for instructors this year to Olga Perez-Stable Cox, the professor caught on camera calling Donald Trump’s election “an act of terrorism” during her human sexuality course in December

So Teh Peepul got upset about official intimidation and this community college decided to let everybody know who’s who and what’s what.

Bravo. Fuck The Proles. Down The Revolution!!!!1

 

There’s not a lot Trump can do that will disappoint me, I’ve been expecting him to go all Northeast Liberal on us. The one thing that would piss me off would be not undoing Obama’s memos, phone calls and executive orders, but every day I see another bunch of (minitrue link) lefties crying because Trump reversed Obama’s law-breaking…law-making.

President Donald Trump is more than willing to facilitate the destruction of his predecessor’s legacy of worker protections. On Monday, behind closed doors and without his typical fanfare, Trump signed Congress’s repeal of Obama’s Fair Pay, Safe Workplaces executive order that would have mandated that companies with substantial federal contracts be required to disclose past violations of federal labor laws—such as wage and hour laws and workplace safety standards.

The EPA orders have been full of win, but that’s awesome too. It’s one of the executive orders Obama signed on the way out the door, it was so important that he waited 8 years to do it.

I saw a bunch of links that claimed it was a union-giveaway, which makes sense considering that Obama loves to screw America to help unions.

 

This is darn funny. The sneaker of choice of suicidal cult members is being sold for $6k.

If suicide cult leader Marshall Applewhite knew how much his box of Nike Decade sneakers would be worth today, he might not have killed himself.

In 1997, the crackpot captain of Heaven’s Gate religious cult managed to get his hands on 39 pairs of then-unremarkable Nike Decades for just $548.35. Heaven’s Gate members laced up their black rides with the white swoosh, swallowed lethal doses of phenobarbital (served in apple sauce or pudding) and left the mortal coil.

Now, 20 years later, somebody is trying to sell a pair of Decades (which Nike, unsurprisingly, discontinued) for $6,660 on eBay.

I saw an ad for it on this very site!

There’s probably gonna be a bidding frenzy. There are a lot of suicidal cult members running around America right now.

 

“Nobody’s messing up my fucking wedding!” said the bride.

A Brazilian couple whose wedding day was shattered after a hitman walked in and opened fire on guests have told why they decided to go ahead with the ceremony.

Jailton Barbosa, 25, and his 18-year-old bride Christina said they were ‘trying to make the best of a bad deal’ after gunman Humberto Ferreira Santos, 52, wounded three people as they were preparing to walk down the aisle earlier this year.

 

With this that cracks me up.

The pair say they do not regret pushing on with their vows, but were upset when around half of their guests failed to show up at the wedding party because ‘so much food was wasted.’

Dammit, just cuz there’s blood on the cake doesn’t mean we ain’t eating it!

 

Wait, nothing’s changed, it’s just that masks are coming off.

I’m on Day something of boycotting Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 and Trump Lied About Being Wiretapped!!!!!!!!!!! news. I can’t take all the lying lies from fakenewsers.

Speaking of which, Charles Krauthammer has revealed himself, over the Obama years, to be just another member in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

but Krauthammer has a carefully, and well-deserved, reputation for being smart rather than ideologically correct and must know better. Here’s what he said (I transcribed the segment myself from a replay of the program)

“It’s a farce, you know, the idea that everyone in this town – the media – the agencies – the congress – are running around chasing their tails on a story that everyone knows it’s not true, but having to pretend that it might be because he’s the President when we know how it’s going to end.”

It’s been really infuriating watching our fine media and political betters switch 180 degrees from “Look at what those wiretaps proved!!!!!” to “There were no wiretaps!!!!!!!!” and stay there.

 

I’m a little disappointed in this guy.

When Mitch McConnell promised to repeal Obamacare “root and branch,” Meadows (Freedom Caucus leader) actually thought that he meant … well … root and branch.

And when Mr. Meadows read the fifth sentence of Speaker Paul Ryan’s “Better Way to Fix Health Care,” which declared, “Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach,” well, he though it meant full repeal, starting over, and a new approach.

Meadows, along with a few of his compatriots, didn’t seem to get the memo: that this was all a joke. Who do they think they are? Amelia Bedelia? Doesn’t he know they only meant to repeal the funding mechanism of Obamacare to make it more insolvent?

 

With just a slightly lighter touch, it would be the type of satire that’s best, the type where you can’t tell if it’s really satire or for reals.

I read almost the same article a couple of times over the weekend and they were serious. Like this one from yesterday about how The Conservatives Made A Mistake!!!!!! for expecting GOP officials to do what they’ve been specifically elected to do.

 

So some people in MD are upset that 17 and 18 year old HS “freshman”/illegal aliens raped a classmate but the people in charge of their children know who’s to blame.

The public outrage toward the illegal alien suspectsaccused of raping a 14-year-old freshman at Rockville High School has been “racist” and “xenophobic,” according to Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith.

Our betters are just sick of our shit.

 

CBS has always been full off commie stooges, just like the rest of Minitrue.

CBS proudly claims Julia Sweig as a “CBS News Analyst.”

Back in 2008 the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher  Lieut. Col. Chris Simmons (now retired), named this very Julia Sweig as a full-fledged  “agent of influence” for the Castro regime.

It’s the perfect match, like balls and chains or cats and nine-tails!

 

Okay, this takes all the balls in the world.  China is the world’s biggest thief of intellectual property, nobody else is even close. Which makes this even funnier and chutzpaer.

A ban on selling iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones in China got overturned after a Chinese court ruled in favor of Apple in a design patent dispute.

Last May, a Beijing patent regulator ordered Apple and a local retailer Zoomflight to stop selling the iPhones after China-based Baili claimed they infringed on the patented design of its 100c smartphone.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday overturned the ban, saying the regulator didn’t follow due procedures. It also said there wasn’t sufficient proof to claim the designs infringed on Baili’s patents, noting that people could easily tell the iPhone 6 and the 100C apart.

Get that? Some commie chinese company  stole (I figure V) Apple’s intellectual property and then sued to keep Apple from competing with them.

But the part that this article ignores (probably because the ‘journalist’ is lazy, stupid, biased and ignorant like the rest of the breed), is that this was a shakedown.

Chinese courts aren’t like ours. Sure, they have judges and benches and shit, but their verdicts are what their commie masters tell them. This was just a way to get some money of out of Apple.

And that makes me laugh. I hope they keep doing that shit to Apple until Apple is forced to give up all the $billions they’ve invested in their slave-labor factories. Fuck em.

 

I see this sort of stuff and I just fundamentally disagree.

The film he was referring to was Stanley Kubrick’s touching First World War drama Paths of Glory, in which the master tells the story of a group of French soldiers court-martialed for cowardice during the trench war with the Germans, and their moral commander who decides to defend them in court. Paths of Glory came out in 1957, was released exactly on Christmas, and managed to cover the cost of its production, but not achieve any significant financial gain. This comes to no surprise given the themes it chose to explore and the obstacles it faced in its initial run. The film’s obvious anti-military subtext…

I don’t think it’s ‘anti-military’, it is anti-French way of doing war.

Some general made a plan but was told it wouldn’t work. Since he’s a general and can’t be wrong, they sent in the attack anyway. It got all fucked up and some men didn’t attack when they were supposed to because the rest of the plan fell apart before they were supposed to attack.

Since you can’t make a French general look bad, they told Kirk Douglas (playing a French colonel) to choose a few men and execute them for cowardice in battle.

It’s a perfect slice of why I do not like the European way of war, there are the aristocrats and peasants and never the twain shall meet, except when the aristos tell the proles to go die gloriously. The man who ordered The Charge Of The Light Brigade should have been shot before they were halfway across the valley but that’s not what happened.

But since it shows what happens in real war, it’s anti-war. Like Pork Chop Hill, which I don’t think is anti-war, just very accurate.

 

Okay, I have to wonder if anybody’s using this utterly creepy, unwieldy thing.

This new wearable device is supposed to make meeting people easier. Called Ripple, the device was designed by students at the Royal College of Arts in London.

Using two built-in cameras, the device monitors the environment around you, sending you a signal when someone’s gaze lingers on you. After helping you identify your admirer, Ripple’s tentacles will start moving flirtatiously if it senses there’s a mutual attraction. You can see Ripple in action in the video above.

 

Check it out, it’s freaking bizarre. A girl wears this framework with tentacles hanging off it (is it racist that they use a Japanese-looking girl for their tentacle thing?). If someone looks at her the cameras pick it up and the tentacles slap around the girl to let her know the direction. If she looks they start waving more, if they keep staring at each other, they get more agitated.

It’s the Doc Ock dating device!!!

Them getting themmer.

Us.

The new right wing does more than just get petty when the going gets rough. We appropriate. When you attack us, we turn it into a slogan. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” made us into The Deplorables. Her “fake news” now defines all the news that lies about us. We even got her freaking out about a green frog. Since then, we’ve convinced them that everything from an “OK” gesture to a bobbing purple dove to a glass of milk is a secret Nazi code. It’s so easy to turn them into a dizzy Chihuahua frantically chasing his own tail that it’s almost cruel—almost.

They’re tools and we’re a tool using species, it’s a perfect match!

 

Them acting Themmer

Huntington Beach Pro-Trump March Turns Into Attack on Anti-Trump Protesters

So… Some Trump supporters just started attacking peaceful people?

The anti-Trump protester, dressed in all black and wearing a mask, attacked an organizer of the event, Jennifer Sterling, and other members of the march with the irritant, causing a group of marchers to tackle the masked man, punching and kicking him.

 

Ahh, so the anti-Trump folks were “mostly peaceful” Anti-fa blackshirts who got their asses so deservedly kicked.

People aren’t going to let our fine, mostly-peaceful, fascist countrymen beat us anymore. People are fighting back. Generation Snowflake is going to find out that beating the people they hate is not cost-free.

 

There’s also been a spate of us getting themmer.

Let’s accept that Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill wasn’t optimal.

Since it was Obamacare with some lipstick, yeah, we’ll go with “wasn’t optimal”, sounds so much better than “Fuck you people who voted for us to get rid of Obamacare”.

If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations,

Okay, that’s utterly stupid. The CBO is only useful for pushing lefty legislation or against conservative legislation.

But yes, it’s true, it wasn’t full repeal.

I’ll translate: “But yes it’s true, the GOP was saying Fuck You Base!”

Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that.

At least you’re admitting, even as you try to deny it, that the GOP was not keeping their campaign promise of getting rid of Obamacare. This would have been worse than no bill.

This bit makes me laugh.

Let’s also forget about any four-dimensional chess conspiracy theories.

It looks to me as if he’s trying to play 9-dimensional chess by passing bills that eventually get the gov’t out of all aspects of my life.

All this said, I simply feel that letting the bill die was such a huge mistake politically that it would have been worth eating the bill’s flaws — trying to fix them in the Senate — and living to fight another day.

See?

But I do care very much about the country and about what policies Trump institutes and leaves behind: the tax reform, regulation cutbacks, solid judge picks, and stronger foreign policy that seem to be a real and legitimate part of his agenda.

I’m a Conservative Dammmit!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a PATRIOT!!!!!! And I’m for REGULATION CUTBACKS!!!!!! DAMMMITTT!!!!! But let’s leave some of that gov’t regulation in one of the most important aspects of our lives! Healthcare Needs The Gov’t To Be In Charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CUZ IT’S CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!!

So that said, if the president now finds himself humiliated by the conservative leadership… if the president now finds himself unable to work with Republicans on the Hill…

What do the two have to do with each other? Republicans on the Hill are not led by any conservative leadership, they shit on the conservative leadership.

I fear this may be the end result of the failure of the healthcare bill: a Washington in which Donald Trump can find more love on the left than on the right, more chance of winning through leftism than through conservatism.

The Moderate Wing of the GOP (the GOP wing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party) is always pushing the same thing, surrender. The GOP is far more On The Left than On The Right. Saying anything else is just not paying attention.

If only conservatives would get over that whole, “Limited gov’t thing” we could just get stuff done!

 

Let’s look at what Minitrue’s doing.

This has to kill this minitrue outlet in good standing.

Trump was right after all about the Obama administration wiretaps

Even as most of the media is still pushing “Unsubstantiated claims!!!!!!” bullshit.

It’s still minitrue, so they have to write this

Of course, the original tweets were poorly worded and inappropriate as a way for a president to raise this issue. Moreover, the inadvertent surveillance is rightfully distinguished from the original suggestion of a targeting of Trump.

It’s funny, the guy spent a paragraph or two explaining that “wiretapping” was a broader statement than just “taps on a wire” yet then he writes “poorly worded”. They’re still on “inapropriate” and yet, if Trump had not tweeted that, we would not be discussing Obama’s felonious/near treasonous listening in a political opponent.

In the 70s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media got him to resign over the cover-up.

In the 10s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media is trying to get the wiretappee to resign by covering up the crime.

It’s a funny old world.

 

More reports of Obama wiretapping Trump.

A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration.

But Trump hates him some (insert current fakenewsers’ lie here)

 

Too bad the CDC and the NIH are too busy worrying about global worming and my guns to do anything about this work on sepsis.

He wants there to be a comprehensive study, and he said that Stanford University has expressed some interest. But he said it will be difficult to fund because it uses drugs that have been on the market for decades: “We are curing it for $60. No one will make any money off it.”

If the gov’t is gonna get into science, that’s what they should be doing but no, they’re too busy asking about my guns and worrying about the (made-up) plagues their god is wreaking on our world.

 

 

Other people are noticing 

I wonder if he was one of those how was slapping his fins and honking his horn for all the stinky fish they threw at our faces.

 

Eh, since I’m twitting, I’m might as well keep being a twit.

Holy Moly! Foghorn Leghorn must be on freaking steroids! The chicken hawk’s gonna need a bigger dog!

 

Now I don’t like Cat Videos very much, but this one just made me laugh.

 

 

I could see a new sport, you’d just have to used a well-waxed floor instead of ice. Cats don’t like cold.

 

And everything new is still getting pretty fucking old.

I’m ignoring The Election Was Hacked By Russia For Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shit, that’s getting very old.

I’m also ignoring, “Trump Lied About Wiretapping!!!!!!!!! Well, sure, his peeps were listened in on, but it was INADVERTENT!!!!! and not a Wiretap!”

Because the blatant and open dishonesty is just too much to take in. I’m mostly wondering how much of America is looking at all the media’s contortions (I’m looking at you Foxnews) to try to make Trump look like the liar by lying about him.

The only question I have is what they’re calling Journolist these days. I do know the Journolist Words Of The Day were “inadvertent” and “incidental”.

 

I hit “Post” and then pulled it back because I forgot this.

This is getting old. My bougainvillea is still watching me.

 

I’m just trying to read my dam book and this sucker keeps staring at me!

 

Now this shit is getting pretty old.

Terrorist Worked Alone!!!!!!!

British Prime Minister,Theresa May, speaking in the House of Commons, said that the man who carried out Wednesday’s terrorist attack in Westminster “acted alone.”...

Police investigating the crime have now made eight arrests in raids in Birmingham and London:“The inquiries in Birmingham, London and other parts of the country are continuing. It is still our belief, which continues to be borne out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism.

So he worked alone with these people spread across Akbar Britain and the rest of the world.

That word “alone” apparently has changed its meaning in the 21st century, when applied to Islamic terrorists.

 

Hypocritical, Intolerant Canucks are getting very fucking old.

Officials in the Manitoba border town of Emerson say some residents are starting to get a little annoyed with how asylum-seekers are behaving when they arrive in the community.

Reeve Greg Janzen says nine or more people who illegally crossed the border walked into town early Tuesday morning.

He tells CTV Winnipeg that one group of three people started ringing doorbells at 4 a.m. at a house in town, looking for help.

He says on Sunday morning, another group of six was knocking on doors and looking into a window, characterizing the behaviour as “a little rude.”

You should be more tolerant and welcoming! They’re just trying to make a better life for themselves and their country they’re entering illegally!

I do love the title, “Reeve”, it always reminds me of Dan Aykroyd

Dickface!

 

Tsarism! It’s not old, it’s new!

Nikolai Gorokhov, a lawyer representing the family of a Russian whistleblower, was reportedly thrown out of the fourth floor of his Moscow apartment building on Tuesday — a day before the 53-year-old was due to appear in court regarding a contentious corruption case.

Obama has to be jealous, he had all that picky Rule of Law shit to get around, murdering whistleblowers is tougher here. Even Clintons have to be careful about that.

 

The battle for Mosul is going as expected. The terrorists are hiding among civilians courting civilian casualties is very old, so why are we bombing from on high? What could go wrong!

The US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group says it is investigating reports of an airstrike in a western Mosul neighborhood that allegedly left more than 100 civilians dead.

Residents of the Iraqi city’s neighborhood known as Mosul Jidideh told an Associated Press team at the scene that scores of residents are believed to have been killed by a pair of airstrikes that hit a cluster of homes in the area earlier this month.

Oh.

 

Let’s do some slimy American politician news.

Where are we in our revolt?

Our betters surely think it’s getting old.

I don’t think the GOP is going to manage that. It’s been far too obvious that our fine GOP betters are not interested in getting rid of Obamacare so blaming the people who are trying to save us from the gov’t controlling our entire lives is a tough sell.

 

But Trump doesn’t need Congress to even act.

Small businesses are pleading the Trump administration to delay an onerous Obama-era regulation requiring calorie labeling on menus, violations of which can carry jail time for mislabeling food.

Jail Time for mislabeling food? Jebus.

But that’s not the point.

All Trump has to do is just Executively Order Obamacare away.

Obama had to keep writing memos, orders and calling bureaucrats to get it to work. If Trump just undoes all that illegal changing of a law, it would go away.

Look at how much they illegally delayed to help Dems get elected, or at least, get Obama re-elected

He could also just give waivers to all of America.

That fucking law was all about stupidity and unConstitutionality, getting rid of it should be easy. Hell, I’d love to see the Supreme Court explain how Obama giving waivers to the politically connected is fine but Trump giving waivers to the non-politically connected is verboten!

 

Now, there are places with more corrupt pols, but there are none with pols any slimier and more open about their corruption and sliminess than NY pols. What’s funny is that the NY Post seems to be trying to pretend this very old corruption is all new and shit.

Will Any Scandal  put an end to NY pols’ shadowy-spending ways? asks the NY Post.

Kudos to Citizens Union for pointing out that Gov. Cuomo’s budget plan includes $13.8 billion in shadowy spending — nearly a tenth of the total $152.3 billion plan.

The watchdog group’s “Spending in the Shadows” report flags outlays that face little or no public scrutiny — including for some programs that resemble the Buffalo Billion projects that now have several Cuomo ex-associates facing federal corruption charges, and/or the funds key to the corruption that earned ex-Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver his long federal prison sentence.

The hallmark of all NY budgets

The budget includes $9.5 billion in “economic development” funds, which face minimal oversight and are notorious for abuse.

 

Slush funds for paying off connected contributors are required. Notorious for abuse is NY Speak for “Business as Usual”.

With this Evergreen Quote!!!!!!

Yes, both chambers of the Legislature have ideas for greater transparency in (Cuomo-controlled) economic-development spending. The gov, meanwhile, has proposals for more sunlight on the lawmakers’ pork.

Arf Arf Arf!!!! Slap! Slap! Slap! Honk! Honk! Honk!

They’re GOING TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!! THEY’RE GETTING HARUMPHS FROM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To answer the original question, No, it won’t. We’ve been watching their corrupt negotiations going on in the pages of the NY Times and the Albany Times Useless for decades and the only thing that’s changed is the names.

 

Chicago might be more corrupt, but since a Clintonista took power, they’re chasing NY’s sliminess.

This article is hilarious in its obtusity. As if everything old is suddenly new.

A rock has been turned over in Chicago, and all kinds of revelations are scattering out.

Bill Ruthhart and Hal Dardick report in the Chicago Tribune:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s personal email accounts

What is it with Clintonistas and email?

have served as a private avenue of influence where executives and investors sought favorable action from City Hall,

The deuce you say! You mean a Chicago pol sells infuence?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

raising questions about whether some of the messages crossed the line into lobbying and violated the city’s ethics law, the Chicago Tribune has found.

Wait, Chicago has ethics laws?

Now that’s something new!

Wait, no it isn’t. That’s the price vice pays to fool the idiots who believe what people say instead of what they do.

 

Speaking of Clintonistas, let’s see what’s going on in Corruptocrat Land.

 

I bet a dollar it’s titled, “All About Sex! How The GOP Held A Nation Hostage!”

The scripted anthology series will focus on US Presidents, according to an announcement by the channel. One of the first projects in development? The 1998 to 1999 impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, covering his affair with Monica Lewinsky, how the Clinton family dealt with the fallout, and the secret back-channel negotiations between the White House and Congress.

We all know the bad guy, Newt.

 

This should be titled “Wishful Thinking“.

The studious interest in Chelsea’s next move is understandable coming from the right, which has always hated the Clintons and no doubt welcomes the distraction Chelsea offers from the president’s dismal approval ratings and damning intelligence hearings. Bill, Hillary and Chelsea have long been enthusiasm-boosters for the Republicans, and they’re reluctant to give them up.

 

I’m a Clinton-Hater from way back but the most I can work up for that sad, colorless, drab scion is amused contempt. Note to the LA Times, it’s Democrats who are pushing her. It’s conservatives who are pointing and laughing. It’s GOP establishment pricks who are looking forward to another Clinton to fundraise on, it’s their comfort zone.

But the laser-focused Chelsea vitriol is perplexing when it comes from the left. Shouldn’t such first-daughter hatred be reserved for Ivanka? Wouldn’t their attention be better spent on potential 2018 and 2020 candidates who have already declared their interest? Aren’t there bigger battles to fight — and aren’t they glad that such a prominent Democratic figure is registering her dissent with the current administration?

Nobody who hasn’t been forced to work with her cares enough about her to hate her.

 

Let’s end on one of my pet peeves, where everything old is new, then old, then new, then old, then new, then…..

Butter, eggs, salt, bacon, coffee, olive oil and more have been good for you, bad for you, good for you, bad for you, good for you, bad for you…

Like eggs, which many people had virtually banished from their diets, cheese is well on its way to being rehabilitated as a “good” nutrient rich food. Along with a slew of other nutrition nonsense we’ve been fed constantly over the years by “experts” and government agencies doing their bidding this too will end up being completely debunked. Butter? Coconut oil? Red meat? None of them are actually “bad” for you at all.

 

That’s old and yet people keep ‘noticing’ it as if it’s all new.

Eat stinky cheeses, butter, olive oil, salt and eggs, they’re better for you than the processed crap they make instead.

And don’t forget the bacon!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why do “nutritionists” keep telling us all the food for breakfast is bad for us?

 

I think they just hate America.

 

I H8 The Media!

No, really I do. They’re abusing their privileges to lie, lie, lie. They lie for their pols and against the ones they hate.

 

As we all knew, Obama was surveilling Trump,

The U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump’s transition team and the information was “widely disseminated” in intelligence reports, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Wednesday.

“I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition,” Nunes told reporters.

But since it’s a favored pol, they’re giving Obama the benefit of the doubt. You see, he was just doing some surveillance of something else, nobody seems to care exactly what, and just happened to wiretap Trump and his peeps. It was all an honest mistake. Because we know Obama was all about Honesty and mistakes. But mostly mistakes. And dishonesty.

As we’re seeing more and more proof that he was being surveilled, they’re all still calling Trump’s statement of fact, “Unsubstantiated!”, as I saw on the crawl on Foxnews.

 

Couple things about the terrorist in London today, notice all the EUnuch sources call him “Asian”. That’s one of the things that bothers me about the current Newspeak dictionary, there’s no uniformity! In America, we’ve been told we can’t call orientals ‘oriental’, we have to call them ‘asian’. You see, because racist lefties are always hearing racist dogwhistles. But in Akbar Britain, ‘asian’ is Pakistani, or just a general ‘brown person’.

That link is the perfect example of today’s ‘journalists’.

British Muslims Fear Repercussions Over Tomorrow’s Train Bombing.

Oh wait, that was a Tim Blair commenter, here’s the right quote.

“We’ve seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.”

 

So…we’re not supposed to notice certain things. It’s just not done in polite society.

 

I’m not sure if Weasel Zippers did this Drudgetaposition on purpose, but I was planning it after the first post, then I saw the next post.

First postSan Francisco Considers Punishing Companies That Bid On Trump’s Border Wall…

Next postCalifornia’s Carl’s Jr. Ditches Golden State Over High Taxes…

California punishes anybody who tries to do business in their state, whether through high taxes, regulations or bribes to the prominent Democratic party politicians who run that state, I’m not sure how much more San Francisco could do. Steal newspapers off their stoop in the morning?

 

Let’s end on someone paying attention.

Hot teacher ‘rapes’ teenage, male, student.

As we all know, the hotter you are the less jail time you do. So that mugshot is  just a pre-emptive, “I’m Hot!” salvo.

 

I just cannot keep watching the news. We had months of reports of ‘leaked transcripts of wiretapping” that attempted to harm Trump, which immediately switched to “no proof of wiretapping!” as soon as that could harm Trump.

I’m not interested. At this point, I’m only wondering how the GOP is going to try to explain being feckless assholes who refuse to do anything they’ve been specifically elected to do. Like get the gov’t out of healthcare, secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

But since the ‘news’ is out, let’s get some NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heavy on vids and pics.

First, some real news.

Geez, Trump is so fascist and hatist, mere proximity has turned Canada into a bunch of fascist haters!

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

I do wonder how they reconcile that stance and their, Trump is a racist hater for wanting the same thing, stance. You know they’re probably mad at America over it, They’re America’s Illegal Aliens!

 

If you’re going to make fun of Trump, this is how to do it. Zapp Brannigan doing Trump quotes.

Perfect and hilarious. While we’ve never seen them in the same room together, I’ve never seen Trump wear velour. But then, the 70s were sort of a blur and that’s when he would have worn one.

We all have clothes from the 70s we’d like to forget.

 

Via this dude, we see that erstwhile QB Colin Kapernick had some luck on the free agent market!

We know he can scramble and throw a bomb. I’m not sure how he’d do against America’s defensive line, but I’d like to see!

 

Relatedly, via the Jawas, we see this bit of hilarity.

 

Boycott us? No! Boycott You!

Oh, and go fuck yourself. Especially considering the use of “repressive”, just cuz you’re trying to delegitimize their nation doesn’t mean they should be rude!

 

This Amtrack train came into the station through a snow bank, it’s sorta cool, but notice all the people filming this with their phones. Not a one of them realizes that what they’re filming could affect them in any way until it’s far too late. They’re just swept aside. I wonder how badly they, including our intrepid reporter, were injured.

Situational awareness, it’s not just for buying drugs in shitty neighborhoods you know.

 

Now, I could understand padded knees, but would someone explain these mom-jeans to me?

No wait, don’t. I’m sure it’s stupid and I’ve learned enough stupid things for the day.

 

 

US Women’s Hockey Boycotting Championships Over Equal Pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t actually watched women’s hockey but if it’s as riveting as women’s basketball, I’m gonna assume there’s a reason for the disparity in pay.

 

Now this story is a perfect example of the problem with journalism today.

Some guy rammed his car into a tree, repeatedly. Here’s the problem.

Headline

Police: Man charged after crashing car into tree repeatedly ‘to prove a point’

Story

A local man is facing charges after police said he repeatedly drove a car into a tree on his property in order to “prove a point” to another resident at the address…

Bailey told officers that he had done so “to try and prove a point”…

he was ramming the car into a tree to prove a point…

 

Who: Local Man, What: Ram car into tree, Where: Pawcuatuck, When, 3pm for half an hour, How: By driving his car

They got the sensational stuff out of the way, tried to make him look like a dumb redneck, but nowhere do they tell us the important “Why”.

Not once do they mention the point he was trying to prove.

They make a point of telling us 4 times that he was attempting to prove a point, but they don’t mention the point or if he proved it!

Just shoddy journalism. How can we know if the point was worth it?

I also don’t see why the police were involved, he was on his own property destroying his own stuff, that’s none of their business.

But then, everything is now the govt’s business anymore it seems.
