Nice handbasket though.

Imagine trying to explain this to say, Ben Franklin or Tom Paine. That’s a site called, “Law Officer”, I assume it’s for cops.

So Providence pols passed a law and the cops are upset. I’ll be in italics.

Here are some of the items that the future victims of Providence Crime need to be aware of:

  1. Traffic stops can no longer be used as probable cause to investigate further criminal activity. (Good. I don’t see how me having a broken tail light means you can give me a tonsillectomy by going in through my ass.)

  2. Police may not ask for identification more than once including “police may not consider an individual’s lack of proof of identification or failure to respond to a request for identifying information as probable cause or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.” (Good. Your Papers Please! annoys me. Show me the law that says I need to carry ID to make a cop happy)

  3. Police may not photograph anyone below the age of 18 and if a photo (under certain guidelines) is allowed, it must be destroyed in 90 days. (Why are cops photographing anybody? if you have a mugshot, that’s one thing)

  4. “Police may not inquire about an individual’s immigration status.” (Good, if that’s before being arrested, See #2, not good if it’s after)

  5. There is an entire appeal process for anyone listed as a gang member to not be listed as a gang member.  (Oh no! You mean if you cops make a mistake someone can get off your list? This makes me wonder what official status this “gang list” has. I can see having it listed on his mugsheet that he’s been connected with gang activity but what’s the ‘gang list’? Unless you’re going after a specific gang and need a list of its members.)

  6. “If an individual has no convictions within a two-year period after their name has been placed on the “gang list,” and no new evidence meeting the criteria for inclusion on the “gang list” has been found, the name shall be removed and all related records destroyed.” (I’m not sure what this ‘gang list’ is, but if it has official status, I’d like to see the statute that gives it that status. If it’s like the No-Fly list, well, I don’t like “Lists” that restrict freedom that do not involve convictions)

 

I really don’t like 1 and 2 and that “gang list” sort of scares me.

This is fucked up. I try to stay informed but I had no idea this was going on.

The Maduro regime is killing young Venezuelans in order to provoke a violent response for the opposition… Rather than falling into the trap, nonviolent opposition is organizing a nonviolent silent march later today to remember those killed and demand justice…

Shooting young Venezuelans in the head to terrorize demonstrators and provoke a response has been a Maduro regime tactic since at least February 2014.

Beginning on February 12, 2014 regime agents shot Bassil Alejandro Dacosta, age 24 in the head. One of the young students who carried Bassil off after he was shot was Robert Redman, age 28, who reported later that day over twitter: “Today I was hit with a rock in the back, a helmet in my nose. I swallowed tear-gas, Carried the kid who died, and what did you do?” That same day he was also gunned down by Maduro’s colectivos, working in concert with his security forces, and murdered. The killings continued.

A few of the victims.

I hate murderous dictators. I really do.

I also hate our fine media betters who are busy either whitewashing their progressive hero or ignoring his bodycount.

 

It’s funny, when others say this they’re called haters.

Doctor accused of mutilating genitals of young girls defends procedure as religious practice.

Although from what I know, it’s not religious, it’s used by the cultures who did it before Islam.

 

Remember when the Berkeley cops let their fascists attack people for speech they don’t like?

No, not that time, the other time. No, not that time.  I’m talking about Milo. Geez.

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the anti-fascist (sic) Facebook group, By Any Means Necessary, which orchestrated the riots that occurred ahead of a scheduled lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Does that show collusion? I mean, it’s California and they were stopping speech CA doesn’t like, but I sometimes like to think about what a country with a rule of law and a Constitution would do.

 

It’s funny how our worldly lefties just do not understand the rest of the world.  Fake black person goes to Africa, Africans do not think it’s funny that whitey claims to be black.

Police flanked Ms Dolezal’s first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had ‘an authentic black identity’ despite admitting to being ‘biologically white’.

In South Africa. That’s funny.

I will say I agree with her here.

The shamed black activist, who now calls herself Nkechi Amare Diallo, outraged her young black audience in Johannesburg after equating her claim to being ‘trans-black’ with the trans-gender experience of Caitlyn Jenner.

Both are ridiculous people with mental health issues who are using their “condition” to make money and get on TV and should not be “praised”.

I disagree with this guy.

One member of the audience in Johannesburg mocked Ms Dolezal by saying ‘only a white person could claim blackness and tour the world talking to blacks about blackness’

 

Don’t blame that shit on whitey, I’d say it takes a lefty to condescend that much.

 

Little known Bible fact. Moses loved surfing.

Seeing Eye To Eye

Posted: April 21, 2017 by veeshir in Uncategorized

I don’t get why things are so tense right now, we agree on so much.

For instance, some prof in Missouri had this to say

Missouri School of Journalism professor emeritus George Kennedy suggests the National Rifle Association (NRA) is more dangerous than Islamic State.

Writing in the Missourian, Kennedy observed:

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a terrorist organization founded in 1999, headquartered in Syria and feared around the world. The NRA was founded in 1891, headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, and is feared by politicians across America.

I’m not sure why I should care, except that it’s a widespread belief among our fine intellectual betters, but my point is that I absolutely agree.

ISIS is only going to kill some unlucky people, the NRA can get keep Democrats from being elected?!?!?!

That’s way scarier to some people.

 

Speaking of murderous jihadis, I agree with this batch too.

Inside the West Bank’s Ofer Prison, hundreds of Palestinians led by murderer Marwan Barghouti are currently on a hunger strike.

Hundreds of them! Do you realize what that means? The Palestinians are giving us military aid! That’s saving us like 3 or 4 MOABS!

 

I gotta tell you, I think the 21st century Democratic party is setting a standard for hilarity that will be unsurpassed for centuries to come.

CNNPolitics reports, accurately, Waters is “having a moment” with the biggest online buzz since Bernie Sanders. Elle dubbed her “The Millennials’ Political Rock Star.”

If a pair of 70+ year old, career pols  are The Voices Of Your New Generation! you have a serious problem. Check that, serious problems.

That’s a whole lot worse than the Who singing My  Generation while dragging oxygen tanks across the stage.

 

Obama is giving a speech week!…no…PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GIVING A SPEECH NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(inhale)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barack Obama will deliver his first post-presidency public speech Monday in Chicago — but don’t expect any harsh words for President Trump.

The event at the University of Chicago will include young leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement,” according to a statement from an Obama aide.

He might not say, “Trump” exactly, I will entertain side-bets on him saying something like ‘love trumps hate’ though, but I do expect a shitload of strawmen with Trump’s name on them.

Some people think that immigrants are bad. Well, I’m here to say that everybody here is an immigrant! Do those people think we’re all bad?” (spoiler alert, I do) and maybe talking about how the world got a whole lot more dangerous than it was just 6 months ago. I can picture the smug look on his face as he’s talking about how great his POTUSy was.

Unless you’ve been having a problem getting your spouse to agree to a new TV, I wouldn’t watch it.

 

Via DougM at my favorite ‘Stan, we find anarchists getting organized. (definitional problems abound among our intelligentsia) but that’s not what’s funny. his joke.

This is what I laughed at.

He quoted a bunch of fascist anarchists saying they needed “combat training” (exact quote) then he had this to say.

Better question here:
Who are Americans more likely to arm themselves against and have no qualms about putting in the hospital/morgue?
A stick justifies one level of response.
A deadly weapon justifies an entirely different level of response.

Don’t mistake my meaning, here — there are some Americans who are just itchin‘ to form a skirmish line with you traitors. They’ve spent thousands of dollars on first-class weaponry; they have thousands of rounds of ammo; they’ve thought about your masked, hooded faces every time they go to the range (which they do a lot); and some have years of professional, real-world, no-sh*t killing experience (man, deer, pig, and bird).
And, no, you won’t be able to catch up — Americans have been at it for centuries.

Your mouths are writin’ checks your movement can’t cash.

Let’s see an artist’s representation.

 

My buddy went to school with a porn director’s son and he worked as a sound editor on some porn (He was in some too, but as the “Drug dealer on the streetcorner” not the pizza boy), he loved editing in farts in inappropriate places. He’d love this.

 

Not really related but

MAN BITES DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

accused of biting the family dog. Police said the suspect told them he was trying to “teach the dog a lesson.”

Well, Florida-man bites dog, but still.

 It’s true, you do start to resemble your dog!

 

I’ve been checking out President Hillary Clinton’s blog occasionally and I’m no closer to deciding if it’s real or satire. If it’s satire, it’s very well done and pretty darn consistent. If it’s real, it’s very poorly done and consistently willfully-ignorant and stupid.

Like this one

The New York Times is reporting that President Hillary Rodham Clinton has instituted a new policy of threatening America’s enemies with non-imaginary weapons only, a controversial negotiating principle that’s already caused two four-star generals to resign.

Non-imaginary.

This one seems to point to satire, but I just can’t be sure.

On Wednesday, Bill O’Reilly announced he is leaving Fox News in order to run for president.

“President Hillary Rodham Clinton’s approval ratings may be high right now, but she’s can’t expect to win a second term with a guy like me in the mix. I am hoping that the American people will forgive me – a man who has exploited, harassed and sexually assaulted multitudes women throughout my entire career – and let me ruin Hillary’s professional dreams, as I have shattered so many women’s,” O’Reilly said.

But the tone-deafness of lefties ignoring Bill’s sordid past and Hillary’s actions in shutting up his victims is pretty typical of lefties.

Within hours of O’Reilly’s announcement, he had already snagged key endorsements from high profile rapists and sexual predators, including Bill Cosby, Dov Charney, Julian Assange, Clarence Thomas, Roger Ailes, failed candidate Donald Trump and Brock Turner.

No mention of Bill. Or Ted Kennedy, but that’s because Ted Kennedy is still dead.

 

This one FrnakJ could have written last week.

In a lovers’ quarrel that’s rocking D.C.’s foreign policy establishment, on Tuesday, failed candidate Donald Trump accused Russian President Valdimir Putin of “cheating” on him with Syria’s Bashar al-Assad.

That’s funny.

Do you think that FrnakJ just started a whole blog for In My World?

 

 

Have I cursed at this shit so much I’m just recursiving?

Eh, fuck it. Let’s see what the hell is going on. (spoiler alert: It’s lies and bullshit)

 

Yawn, once again we prove Trump’s “Unsubstantiated!!!!! Claims!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” but that’s not really the point.

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

Wait, isn’t Comey the one who wanted someone else to tell America there was no wiretapping of Trump’s peeps?

Just to show exactly how unfuckingsubstantiated Trump’s claims are, another link!

The FBI last year used the controversial “Trump/Russia dossier” as part of its justification to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, CNN reported on Tuesday.

They’re trusting CNN, which is usually shoddy journalism, but it feels right. And by that I mean it tells us what we already knew.

 

High Praise to Harvey for finding this next link.

Color me utterly unfuckingcaring with a soupçon of Fuck Em and a heaping helping of Ha-Ha

Due to this situation, the Soros-funded think tank said that increased deportations (us kicking out illegal aliens V) will likely increase violence in an already crime-ridden region.

In recommendations to the U.S. government, the group wrote that the Trump administration should “refrain from instigating mass deportations or harsher anti-migration measures” against immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

 

Exporting your vicious, murderous criminals to America: It’s not just for Islamic Shithole countries anymore!

 

Wait, murderous, commie dictators steal stuff from capitalists?

General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.

Once again, color me utterly unfckingsurprised. One point, it’s their country, their courts and their judiciary, that makes it perfectly legal.

I can’t wait until the murderous, commie dictators in China start taking Apple’s shit. That’s gonna be fucking high-larious.

 

So the murderous Syrian dictator had a little ceasefire/reconciliation deal. Since it’s the Middle East, you know what that means!

The L.A. Times is reporting that the Syrian government used weapons of mass destruction in a zone created by “reconciliation deals.” Rebels in other contested regions were given safe passage to the zone if they would leave. After the rebels moved they were attacked.

Your Shoelaces Are Untied!

 

I was going to scale these up in levels of “horrific” but I’m not sure if there’s a real ladder, they’re all pretty fucking horrific. Some are just directly so while others are more subtly horrific in that they illustrate where we are as a society and civilization.

 

This is horrifically hilarious. Our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters seem bound and determined to make Chelsea Clinton The Great Blight Hope!.

Hyping the entertainment magazine’s latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?”

Welcome to the liberal media’s manufacturing of “cool.” Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.

This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children’s nepotistic privileges champion the “refreshingly outspoken” daughter of the Clinton dynasty — who, at 37 years old, will receive a “Lifetime Impact” award from Variety on Friday for her “humanitarian work.”

That sad, drab, personalityless scion is just pathetic, I can’t even work up a dislike, which says a lot since I’ve been a member of the VRWC since before Hillary identified it.

 

This one seems less horrible, but this is an “Elite!!” college where our Elite Meet To Compete!. As a teacher in a few high schools, I’ve met more Drs of Lefty  Studies who cannot even speak English, much less write it. “This is where your classroom is at.” Sigh.

This is the intro, They call it “Hudson U” but for the record, I’d bet it was NYU, YMMV.

The author of the following essay is a Professor at a top-ranking, metropolitan U.S. university. The names of both university and professor have been fictionalized to protect the professor from retaliation.

So he cannot talk about what they’re doing for fear of retaliation. They are fundamentally incapable of change.

Just to be clear, most of my faculty colleagues are well-educated, bright, and dedicated teachers

The rest of the article belies that statement. Like this

Some of the faculty members with less than impressive credentials hold positions of significant authority in terms of curriculum development. They serve as chairs of various sub-programs within academic units, and have influence over curricula, both within and beyond the program.

Those are the people in charge. They’ll hire people even more stupider to make themselves look better in a positive-reinforcement that will (is?) oscillate (ing?) out of control.

In a more recent election for writing curricular chair, my competitor accused me in his mission statement of writing books and publishing essays. He treated these as blemishes or sins that somehow disqualified me for the position. “I haven’t written any textbooks. I don’t like textbooks. I don’t have a Ph.D. or scores of academic, scholarly publications to my name,” he wrote

So having the necessary skills for the job is bad. Elite!

Let’s end on this, I could do a full post on this article but it’s just not worth it.

I mentioned that I had received an email from one of the candidates and shared it with the committee members. …

The candidate could not write. I also pointed back to her application letter, which was similarly awkward and error-laden. My committee colleagues argued that “we do not teach grammar” in our writing classes.

There’s your problem right there.

 

Now, I knew why Ann Coulter wanted to go to Berkeley (for all the publicity and hilarity of violent, immature, fascists), but I couldn’t figure out why Berkeley wanted her to come. I mean, they’re not in the free speech and listening to other points of view business.

This link is really only horrific for this line.

Bestselling author and conservative firebrand Ann Coulter scheduled for an April 27 speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement decades ago and now the home of the Totalitarian Anti-Speech Movement, but the event has been canceled due to security concerns. That’s not stopping Coulter, however, who intends to proceed with the event anyway, according to The Washington Examiner. (emphasis me V)

That was then, this is the Glorious Now!, free speech is only for the right (left) people!

 

The most horrific story you’ll read all day (so long as you stop reading after this post I guess, it’s ugly out there)

A Georgia teen accused in the brutal slaying of her grandparents earlier this month partied with her boyfriend in their house while the bodies began to rot, according to officials.

Police said that Cassandra Bjorge, 17, and her boyfriend Johnny Rider, 19, sealed the doors and windows to contain the stench of the decomposing bodies so they could throw a party at the home in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

How do you get evil like that?

 

A little horrific chuckler.

It’s 21st century horrific, I call it, “Don’t worry, I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie!

A man fell to his death on Tuesday while trying to evade arrest by rappelling 11 stories down a Brooklyn apartment building using a rope of tied-together bed sheets.

Dude.

 

Nother one that could be titled, “I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie” where someone pretends to be dead to get out of paying a bill.

An elderly man has died while receiving a lap dance at a strip club in Texas…

The club’s manager said White was ‘unresponsive’ when his dance finished, and after the dancer initially thought the sexagenarian could have been trying to get out of paying his bill,

 

Or was that a Marx Brothers movie? Eh either way, if he had just stuffed his last $20 into a strippers g-string he might have met his life goal. You can’t take it with you after all.

 

How can you tell Britain’s economy is in the shitter?

Willy Wonka got towed.

 

Below the fold, some hottasery. It’s been a while.

America!

Posted: April 18, 2017 by veeshir in Liberal Fascism, Trump 2020 Reelection Team

IMPORTANT, GREECE HAS TALENT!!!! VIDEO UPDATE BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

So what the fuck is going on in America these days? The fucking left has done so much to destroy our nation they’ve finally managed to make us Weimar Germany. The fucking brownshirts are out to stop anybody they disagree with. This is about that Berkeley protest where the Anti-Fa (fascists) went with the express purpose of attacking people they disagree with.

Via Mike we see this guy who knew what to expect so he prepared. He realizes he’s no longer in the America we grew up in.

Those Nike batting helmets are light, but they work! I took a rock to the top of my head yesterday that probably would have had me out.We also tested it before the saturday with a could of good smacks to the sides and back with both dowels and 1x3s. The impact jerked your head, but it protected against the pain and did a reasonable job of getting the blow to skate along the curves of the helmet…

Gloves are necessary as well. I started out with my motorcycle gloves, but lost them when I took them off to put some gauze on the fellow (who was) smack(ed) with the soda. Even though I didn’t take a hit in the hands, I still learned why I needed them after the rally when I was heading back home. I didn’t get pepper sprayed directly, but I did go through the clouds a couple of times and helped a few guys holding their head back when they were getting their eyes washed out. Pepper spray residue was all over my hands and when I took off my mask, helmet and goggles, I instinctively wiped my lips. Noob mistake that would have been mitigated if I was wearing gloves. I’m glad there were no cameras to capture my “it’s too spicy” dance.

 

It’s Weimar days folks, can 700% inflation be far behind?

 

Reverse of Pic of the day

The police, of course, were not going to even pretend to perform their jobs. The link is a minitrue outlet in CA, so they’re doing their jobs.

Before the brawling began, officers stationed themselves at the entrances to downtown’s “Peace Park.” They searched bags and confiscated all sorts of items that could be used for fighting: a stun gun, shields, poles, sticks, knives, mace, bear spray. Even “weaponized Pepsi” — soda cans filled with concrete.

I wonder who was carrying that stuff? I’m gonna bet most of the weapons were from the fascist leftists, they were the ones using clubs and pepper spray after all.

Around 11:15 a.m., someone in the crowd threw what would be the one of many flashbang grenades deployed throughout the day. The orange mesh fence was quickly trampled and a brawl broke out.

“someone in the crowd”, someone in the leftist/fascist crowd you mean.

After nearly two hours of street fights near the park, the momentum shifted when the crack of a flashbang sounded, followed by another loud explosion that filled the air with smoke. The AntiFa demonstrators ran north toward Berkeley Square, with the alt-right supporters in pursuit.

Alt-right is so you know who the bad guy is.

But read that again, 2 hours of rioting.

I love this bit

But, with “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” — a song associated with the American Civil War

You know them Trump supporters are all Confederates! don’t you? They left out which side used it, but when today’s totally tolerant fascists hear “Civil War” they think Confederates and their Dem forebearers losing their slaves.

The groups continued to spar in Downtown Berkeley in the midst of oncoming traffic and Saturday brunchers. Cars caught in the fray tried to drive through as hundreds filled the intersection at Shattuck and Center. Two bicycle cops finally closed the two northbound lanes but left southbound ones open for the next half hour, despite the continuing flow of demonstrators making their way toward the intersection.

Why did nobody stop this?

Where were the police? Why were they allowing these fascists to shut down others’ free speech? Because it’s free speech the State of California is against. Duh.

Other than closing the intersection for traffic, Berkeley police didn’t actually intervene in the scuffle until much later, around 3:30pm. By then, the numbers had thinned and the crowd’s energy was waning.

Oh, our fine fascist foot-soldiers are done? Let’s get to clearing this up!

The statement also emphasized that Berkeley Police “and the City as a whole worked to protect people’s right to free speech and simultaneously keep people safe,” a sentiment reiterated by Officer White. Still, police were virtually absent for hours throughout what’s now being called “The Battle of Berkeley.”

Who you gonna believe? The fires and destruction around our fine, tolerant city or our selfless police who were just trying to let their fascists shut up the haters?

The Battle of Berkeley.

So as we contemplate how our fine betters do not understand how we got Trump and are busily working on finding out what’s next, we can at least reflect on how the Battle of Berkeley ended on a lefty fascist getting a wedgie.

 

IMPORTANT, GREECE HAS TALENT!!!!!! UPDATE HERE!!!!!!!

Fine Arts are making a comeback!

No really, it’s just too freaking…I don’t know but it’s too much of it!

First, I’m gonna agree.

“George Washington was all about counterintelligence,” he said. “He would have had at least half the Trump WH shot as traitors, without tears or doubts.”

Probably. Almost definitely.

Since we’re discussing George Washington shooting elected officials, let’s talk about how he would have shot the entire Obama admin, the entire (hypothetical) Hillary admin, pretty much all the Dem Cong and most of the GOP Cong. Capitol Hill would have about 8 people living there after he got done with them.

Did nothing anybody said about this election get through to our betters? The choice wasn’t between “Better” and “Betterer”, it was between “Fuck me” and “I’m Fucked”.

 

Let’s do some Minitrue!

Headline

Clinton campaign plagued by bickering

Alternate Headline

Hillary Clinton Is An Unpleasant Person To Campaign For

Support for alternate headline

She’d been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sanders down for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew — or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team...

Sensing just how angry she was, Mook responded by putting together a morning conference call so that Hillary could vent. But that didn’t settle her; if anything, it left her more perplexed and angry, as her debate-prep team witnessed firsthand.

Her aides took the browbeating — one of several she delivered in person and on the phone that day — in silence (all emphasis me V)

So..her aides took her attacks in silence and there was “bickering”? Doesn’t “bickering” imply that there is more than one person doing the yelling?

And once again, this is not new. We already established this way back in Travelgate.

 

Up Next We Have The GOP Congress Section!

So…it’s been introduced legislation only, none seem to even have been voted on, much less passed. So there’s a GOP Cong and POTUS and yet, Congress has not done any of the things they’ve been specifically elected to do.

Let’s see what they’re doing.

Via TaxProf Blog (he of the Day 125,874 of the IRS Scandal posts) on day 1435 (25 days from the 4 year mark) some CongressCritter in Texas wants you to honk your horn, slap your fins and ARF!!!!!!! for all you’re worth!

Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL) sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling on the Department of Justice to review evidence that Lois Lerner, the former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director under the Obama Administration, broke the law to target Americans for their political beliefs.

More

Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics. Again, I respectfully request that the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to assure the American people that DOJ’s prior investigation was handled fairly and to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.

Oh, so he’s not saying, “Arrest that lying, thuggish, fascist”. Is he saying to actually investigate her or is he Tom Sawyer convincing some friends that’s taking care of Aunt Polly’s fence is gonna be fun? The last sentence sorta implies that.

Ace learns something that we here at DPUD learned long ago, Gateway Pundit has hyperbolic headlines that don’t match the story.

He links Gateway pundit with with headline

BREAKING: House GOP To File Criminal Charges Against Lois Lerner

…There is a bit of hyperbole in Gateway Pundit’s headline, but it is clear that the House is taking another look at Lerner with the intent of referring her to the Justice Department for prosecution.

GP has this quote

Rep. Roskam: The Obama Administration was very lenient with the crimes that Lois Lerner committed. And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice… We think that Lois Lerner did two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we suspect that she lied to the Inspector General of the Treasury Department.

That’s not saying they’re doing crap, that’s saying she deserves it.

Yeah, we knew that. We also knew you assholes aren’t going to do crap.

 

Ooooohhhhhh!!!!! They’re going after Susan Rice Too!!!!!!!! ARF ARF ARF!!!!!!!!!!

GOP Voter Device

An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under “a full-blown investigation,” Fox News reported on Wednesday.

“We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation,” the committee member said.

 

FULL!!!!! BLOWN!!!!!!!!!!

Contra the 70s T-Shirt, we’re gonna get injected, not blown.

They’re doing jack and shit.

And shit ran out of corn.

 

It’s Failure Theater all the way, they have not passed one fucking bill on border control or repealing Obamacare, both of which they should have been planning since November 9th. They’re talking about “taxes” but taxes was not a big issue in the election, Obamacare, illegal immigration and spending were the biggest issues.

An old Eddiebear post, hie thee hence and read the whole thing, it’s oddly apropos.

 

That’s right. We still have too many fucking RINOs in our midst who seem content to fuck us over at the drop of a hat. We still have too many fucking RINOs who are willing to abandon core principles in order to get an invite to a party or a glowing WAPO Style Section article. We still have too many RINOs who are willing to spit in our collective eye and tell us that we are in the wrong for demanding they vote the way we want. We still have too many RINOs who are more willing to work as statist collaborators than as defenders of freedom. We still have too many RINOs who feel entitled to their seats as though they were a sinecure appointment without consequence. We still have too many RINOs who ignored November’s call to action and think that holding your nose and voting for “the lesser evil” will hold sway with us. And we still have too many RINOs who need to be culled, for they are disloyal Quislings who put us in the problem we are in right now for their past actions. And to them, and their supporters, I say:

Fuck you...

Eddiebear at his fucking finest.

And that’s my point, how can you get motivated to blog when we’re dealing with the same bullshit we were dealing with two POTUSes ago?

 

Trump keeps ‘xecutively unordering Obama’s leftisms and making the world afraid of America again, why we elected him. He can’t do Congress’ job. We can get respect from our allies back eventually but for now, I’m hoping for a heaping helping of fear.

Tsar Putin I is very upset and it’s all Trump’s fault!!!!!!!!

Hours earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was equally pessimistic, saying in an interview broadcast on Russian television, “The level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved but has rather deteriorated.” (since Trump, V)

I’m with the tsar. Last year he had a POTUS he could literally shit on

Although Russia was full of pranks against American officials during the Cold War, the State Department suggested the current harassment has been going on since 2014…

…On at least two occasions, diplomats have found human excrement on their floors.

And now he has to deal with President Bomby McNukerson. Talk about a let down for a murderous, expansionist, Tsar.

 

Two things.

Yesterday I wrote about the Norks but wasn’t clear….ummmm…was more unclear than normal.

Nobody is going to side with us if we hit the Norks, except probably Japan. It’s not in anybody else’s interest to do so. Well, unless we go to war, to the hilt war, with China.

But that’s unlikely (unless China starts it which is a very different kettle of dead commies), what is likely is a little fucking with.
I’d love to see Japan (or us, but I’d prefer them) to cruise missile the next Nork missile test. Just blow it the fuck up on the pad. Then, when everybody starts freaking we tell them to go screw or even better, deny it. “I don’t know who did that. Japan, did you do that? No? Taiwan, did you do that? No? Sorry murderous, Chinese, commie, dictators, we don’t know who did it.”

China and Japan are already close to war, this won’t change shit except possibly do a ‘Syria’ on China. Keep them worried about our crazed, poofy-haired maniac instead of the other way around.

 

Stephen Green links the WSJ because I can’t and the Wash Post because I don’t wanna.

First, WSJ

Meantime, of course, Russian President Vladimir Putin was the great-power leader who was supposed to emerge as the Trump favorite, the one who would develop a close relationship and be forgiven for past transgressions.

Minitrue cannot get past the lie that Tsar Putin I preferred Trump over an easily and often bribed Clinton. And what exactly are our “past transgressions”? Ignoring their invasions, assassinations in other countries and when we caused the fall of the USSR?

Yet somehow in the five months or so since Mr. Trump’s election victory, almost the reverse has happened. Now it appears the Trump-Xi relationship may be emerging as the world’s most important.

Our betters are all enamored of China. China is still a murderous, expansionist, commie, dictatorship. They really, really, really want us to emulate them.

 

Premier Li says ignore your lying eyes!

China is not militarising the South China Sea, Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday, although he acknowledged that defence equipment on islands in the disputed waterway had been placed there to maintain “freedom of navigation”.

Yeah, freedom of navigation. How free?

Despite its concessions, China’s presence here is growing, with a larger contingent of coastguard and fishing boats than was indicated in satellite imagery late last year.

That fuels concerns by Manila that Beijing may have ambitions for the Scarborough Shoal similar to the artificial islands it built and fortified in the Spratly archipelago, inside the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone.

No really, how free?

Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte has cancelled a planned visit to an island the Philippines claims in the disputed South China Sea, after Beijing warned him against the visit.

Reminds me of some movies from the early 40s, they were not happy movies.

 

Back to the original, Stephen Green link where he links the Wash Post.

Entire sections of booster rocket were snagged by South Korea’s navy and then scrutinized by international weapons experts for clues about the state of North Korea’s missile program. Along with motor parts and wiring, investigators discerned a pattern. Many key components were foreign-made, acquired from businesses based in China.

When China decides that the Norks need a good missile, they’ll have the best missiles the murderous commies in China can make. When China decides the Norks need nukes, they’ll give them some commie Chinese nukes.

There’s a line in Pork Chop Hill where one of the US Generals or diplomats negotiating with the Norks says something like, “Don’t just think of them as Orientals, they’re commie orientals.”

The Chinese are sure we’re idiots and their culture is the only good one. They will say all manner of shit just to fuck with us. Indeed, they look down on us when we are honest.

So anything they say about the deal with the Norks means absolutely nothing at all. It’s only useful as a guide that we might be able to use to figure out what they are going to do, but even that is more miss than hit.

They want to expand, they’re not going to give up NoKo and they love having the Norks fuck with the world. They’re the Plausible Deniability state. Which would make it even funnier to blow up their missile test and plausibly deny we had anything to do with it.

 

Some people make me laugh. Imam wants to make sure hateful Americans understand Islam means Peace.

a message he intends to spread especially to non-Muslims who may be familiar with the religion only through news coverage of Islamic extremist groups and federal policies such as the Trump administration’s travel ban.

“We as Muslims owe it to the American people to tell them what Islam is,” Al-Qazwini said. “Islam is not a cult. It is a religion followed by over 1.6 billion people around the world. … Yet many Americans don’t know basically anything about Islam. Many Americans have not met a Muslim in their life.

So what is he calling his message?

Al-Qazwini’s new mantra: “Islam for All.”

Yeah see, that’s one of the biggest, non-splodey, problems we have with many Islamic types, they want us all to be their religion.

Oh, and Islam doesn’t just mean ‘peace’

Islam is derived from the Arabic root “Salema”: peace, purity, submission and obedience

Peace through submission.

I prefer Peace Through Superior Firepower.

 

I’ve had this conversation with a bunch of people on a bunch of subjects, from “standing to sue federal officials” to how my bank should treat me, and while I understand my position is not the legal one, this illustrates my problem with not just airlines but lawyers.

OregonMuse had a post at Ace’s

#2 son worked for several years as a “ramp agent” at our local airport. Ramp agents are airline grunt workers. They check passengers in, check baggage, wave planes into the gate with flashlights, clean up the passenger areas of the plane between flights, etc.

Coincidentally, he worked for United.

I asked him for his take on the United brouhaha.

The money shot for me.

They’re allowed to overbook their flights and they’re also allowed to kick off pretty much whomever they want to make room. The law states that the airline must solicit volunteers to take another flight (which they did), after which they can start involuntarily denying boarding to passengers. It’s also my understanding that “denied boarding” can even occur after the plane is physically boarded.

I understand and accept overbooking, lots of people miss flights and the airline shouldn’t have to eat that, but the “denied boarding can occur after boarding” is fucking stupid lawyer tricks.

How can he be “denied boarding” after he’d already been boarded? The boarding is in the past, they cannot then ‘deny’ it. They can negate it, but they cannot deny that which has occurred.

Sure you already drank that soda, but we’re denying you drinking that soda so I’m going to punch you in the stomach to get it back! is not reductio ad absudum, it’s reductio ad exactly the fucking samum.

Stupid fucking lawyer tricks.

I’m sure if any of you are lawyers you think I’m wrong. I accept that. Accept that I think it’s stupid fucking lawyer tricks to deny the plain meaning of words because there’s some stupid fucking argument that denies reality but sounds good.

He was in his seat. He “possessed” the seat and they took it away. It was apparently perfectly okay for an airline to use law enforcement to enforce their rules that go against the plain meaning of the words.

Stupid fucking lawyer tricks, allowed by ex-lawyers as judges, made them violently hauling that guy off the plane perfectly fucking legal.

Man, that worked me up.

Let’s have a coupla chucklers.

 

This story is Kagogi Approved!

The journey took the 8-year-old through 4 intersections, over railroad tracks and also required him to make a few right hand turns and a left hand turn.

Witnesses told police he did obey all traffic laws and drove the speed limit.

Once at the McDonald’s on Market Street, a family friend who happened to be eating at the restaurant, notified the children’s grandparents. The children did get to eat their cheeseburgers before police arrived.

A trip to the Golden Arches is always in order.

There’s a little 21st centuryism in there.

Officer Koehler arrived at McDonald’s and talked to the little boy, who told him he had learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.

That makes me laugh.

 

There are 11 million hits on this, but I don’t think I’ve seen it before. Of course, that could just mean I posted it on this blog.

Some dude is leaving a message when he sees an accident.

 

I keep picturing the “Where’s the beef?” blue haired crew.

 

Okay one more.

I bet this is Seattle.

 

Dude, did someone move the city?

Have we left the Funniest End of Civilization Ever and moved on to the most Absurd?

I know I’m harping on it, but how can people even pretend our social, moral, political and intellectual betters (The Elite!!!) are not a bunch of booger-eating morons?

 

Via this curmudgeon, we find out that something told as a joke in America is in danger of becoming reality in Sweden. One of Sweden’s ‘big’ newspapers had this to say

Per a translation from Breitbart London, Franchell’s opinion piece referred to automobiles as “effective murder machines” that must be banned at once if our world leaders are truly committed to the cause of fighting terrorism.

 Instead, it is cars — which she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”.

 Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance”, writes Ms. Franchell.

 “It just isn’t reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into one of Stockholm’s busiest streets on a Friday afternoon right before Easter.”

 

It’s not reasonable that a truck could be driven into a city.  Could she get any more stupider?

Yes!

 “Cars are driven largely by men so by giving a lot of space to cars; we’re giving a lot of space to men — at the expense of women,” Karolina Skog explained.

Is she planning for the post-Xtianity, Muslim Sweden where women are not allowed to drive? I know the rest of Sweden is.

A programme to rehabilitate former Isis fighters and other extremists with housing, employment, education and financial support is being trialled in Sweden.

Local authorities in the city of Lund say the controversial measures aim to reintegrate returned jihadis into society and prevent them reverting to their former networks.

From vikings to that. Sad.

 

Shit. The PKK (Kurdish terrorists) had been acting less terroristy lately.

DIYARBAKIR: Five Turkish police officers and two civilians were killed on Monday in a car bombing outside the southeastern city of Diyarbakir blamed on Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) rebels, the government said.

I don’t care who did what to them, terrorism is never acceptable.

Apparently, there is some dispute about who did it.

A KURDISH splinter group claimed responsibility yesterday for Sunday’s suicide car bombing that killed 37 people in Ankara.

The Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK), an extremist rival of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), specialises in attacks on civilians and rejects the PKK’s “humanist” politics…

TAK said on its website that the atrocity was revenge for Turkish military operations against Kurdish communities in the country’s south-east and named the perpetrator as Seher Cagla Demir, “the first female suicide bomber in our ranks.”

The PKK better shut that shit down or they’re gonna lose lots of friends.

 

Bring Back Our Girls!!!!! So we can blow them up!

The use of child suicide bombers by the insurgents of Boko Haram has surged, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said on Wednesday.

Since January 2014, 117 children – more than 80 per cent of them girls – have been used in such attacks in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon, UNICEF said in a new report.

That’s horrific. Even worse is that they’re doing something UNICEF finds terrible (UNICEF is, of course, part of the UN. They’re big on sexual slavery)

 

Remember when Putin Was Not Going To Meet With Tillerson Because That Idiot Trump Screwed Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Yeah, about that.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is meeting on Wednesday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to reports.

Huh. Acting strong and a little crazy gets tsars and sultans attention. Whodathunkthat? Certainly not the Obama Smirt Duhplomacy Team.

With violence raging in Kiev, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has trying to reach his Ukrainian counterpart on the phone to urge restraint against civilian protesters – but no one is picking up, U.S. officials said today.

Indications are that the Ukrainian government’s violent crackdown against protesters in Kiev have involved Interior Ministry forces and not military troops, officials said.

That was Putin’s tsarling before he was ousted in the Maiden Protests.

It’s absurd to pretend Putin is anything but unhappy that Obama is gone and his replacement isn’t an easily and often bribed Hillary.

 

Okay, I hope Trump is a lot smarter than this and it’s just a bunch of minitrudiots and former Obamorons saying this idiocy. Surely Tillerson knows better.

U.S. President Donald Trump is finding little support among his Asian allies — both publicly and behind the scenes — as he weighs a military attack on North Korea after unilaterally firing missiles on Syria.

No matter what anybody says about China being mad at the Norks, China owns North Korea in fee simple. An attack on the Norks means war with China. They fought a war over North Korea against the POTUS who nuked a fucking country.

I really cannot figure out why people do not accept that China did not send millions of their soldiers to fight a war only to just bring them home afterward. Especially considering that China and Japan have been fighting over and up and down the Korean peninsula for as long as there’s been a China, Japan and Korea.

 

Our Fine Media Betters: Hiding Leftist Perfidy Is Job 1!!!!!!!!!

What should the police find in all those acres of debris?  A dead body, not surprisingly, nestled among all the garbage-barge-like flotsam and jetsam such Occupy-inspired campout protests always leave in their wake.

The body was of a California man who hung out at protests as an “activist” and who had been reported missing by his stepbrother last October.  It was found in the Cannonball River, where it had been left among all the detritus of the protesters, apparently none of them particularly caring, yet all full of self-righteous virtuousness about saving the earth as their demonstration spun into chaos.

 

I had to listen to our fuckheads in minitrue talk about The Racism, Hate and Incipient Violence at Tea Party events as they excuse the violence and felonies at “mostly peaceful” lefty protests.

 

Speaking of our fine media betters, it’s funny how often they say what they mean while being absurd that people do not accept that’s who they are.

On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews repeatedly analogized the Trump family to the Tsarist Romanov family that ruled Russia. Matthews ominously concluded, “we know what happened to the Romanovs.”

The Romanovs were killed by commies like Matthews.

 

I’ve pretty much stopped watching the news, are any of them putting out corrections over a month of calling Trump a liar?

From the Wash Post article links

This is the clearest evidence so far that the FBI had reason to believe during the 2016 presidential campaign that a Trump campaign adviser was in touch with Russian agents. Such contacts are now at the center of an investigation into whether the campaign coordinated with the Russian government to swing the election in Trump’s favor.

So I’m guessing no corrections. That should have read,

This is the clearest evidence so far that Obama wiretapped  Trump. Such wiretapping had been claimed by Trump and should be at the center of an investigation into whether the Obama admin coordinated with the Hillary campaign and her minitrue supporters to swing the election in Hillary’s favor”

but the Wash Post is nothing if not a bunch of lying fakenewsers.

 

Funny and absurd! Some Texas legislator wanted to make fun of another bill by a legislator from a rival party so she

Rep. Jessica Farrar, D-Houston, is making a point about legislation that restricts women’s access to healthcare and abortions by proposing to fine men $100 when they masturbate. Alongside the penalty for wasting semen not resulting in a pregnancy, Farrar’s bill would require a “medically unnecessary digital rectal exam” before any man undergoes a vasectomy or can be prescribed Viagra.

But then an absurd thing happened. I mean, a more absurd thing happened.

The bill has now made its way into the hands of the Texas State Affairs Committee on Tuesday.

The committee is typically the panel that hears abortion-related legislation and it will now address Farrar’s House Bill 4620, which is named the “Men’s Right to Know Act.”

Heh. Texas Outlaws The Moron Lifestyle!

Which makes the next story even scarier.

Geez, don’t these people recycle! Alternate headline, Oft evil will shall evil mar.

A condom-clogged drainage pipe tipped off Austin, Texas, police to a prostitution ring that was operating under the guise of a massage parlor.

Hundreds of used rubbers were backing up a waste disposal unit connecting Jade Massage Parlor and its shopping strip to the city sewer system,

There’s a garbage can for those you know.

 

After I got back from the ‘massage parlor’ I decided to do some interior decorating but there were just two things on my mind.

 

It makes my living room all soft and warm.

Geez, Russia must be really broke, look what got repossessed!

 

 

How did it get so freaking absurd out? It’s pretty endy, but it’s not really funny. Just absurd.

I saw stuff about Obama To Meet With Merkel!!!! and I thought he might be doing some diplomatin’ without a license so I clicked the link.

Barack Obama will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her home country late next month for a panel on democracy.

So just the normal, post-POTUS, 6-7 figure, plus airfare, accommodations and gift bag, Senior Statesman deal. It’s sorta funny that Obama, and others apparently, think of him as a Senior Statesman, but while that’s sorta absurd what’s really absurd is the focus of the panel.

The two will participate in “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally,” which is sponsored by both the German Protestant Kirchentag and the Obama Foundation.

Yeah, Mr. I Never Met A Democratic Movement I didn’t Ignore, like the Iranian Student Protests and The Maiden Protests in Ukraine.  The Iranian student protest link is a hilarious, “fact check” by CNN where Romney said Obama was silent on the Iranian protests. CNN says,

Obama’s initial response to the protests became a source of controversy at the time, and his political enemies have brought it back up at various times since.

In the very first days of the Iran protests, the president did not weigh in publicly. After more and more images of violence surfaced, he condemned the actions of the Iranian government, and later toughened his talk.

 

They try to obfuscate that Obama only “talked tough!!!!!” after images of gov’t thugs beating (sorta like SEIU thugs beating tea partiers) and murdering protestors showed up on TV he said

“up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be,” he said, adding that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”
But, Obama said, “I am deeply troubled by the violence that I’ve been seeing on television. I think that the democratic process — free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent — all those are universal values and need to be respected.”
He said it was his understanding that “that the Iranian government says that they are going to look into irregularities that have taken place,”

Yeah, they got right on that. Giving out medals requires a careful analysis of their thugs’ actions.

Which statement, of course, showed he did his normal did jack and shit when democracy folks get beaten.

And shit was out of gum.

How can you blog when Obama, who spent much of his POTUSy actively damaging democracy around the world is on a panel about spreading democracy?

Sigh.

The other day I wrote,

First, the lie that they wanted to bomb anybody but Texas and Israel,

I meant it to be funny. While I think he wanted to bomb Israel and Texas, he was ready to bomb just about any jihadi enemy of Iran. like ISIS but not Hezbollah, anywhere, anywhere. The truth of the statement was that bombing Iran’s client state in Syria was not on the table. Especially since he had to use his flexibility with Putin.

 

This WSJ article linked by Stephen Green at the puppy blender’s shows a fundamental misunderstanding of “bi-partisan” legislation.

Democrats’ Conditions for Tax Overhaul Make Bipartisan Deal Unlikely.

Democrats getting their way is the definition of bi-partisan. It’s absurd to think otherwise.

 

I’m not looking for it, but I saw a CNN bit yesterday or the day before where their “neutral” reportage actually seemed to side with the Norks against the aggressive warmonger Trump. I mean, they allowed a bunch of unopposed statements about how Trump was being all bellicose at the peaceful Norks.

Which leads to We’re Better And Smarter Than You News:

I see Little Lord Graham talking about how the Syrians Sure Showed Trump!

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s decision to immediately resume air missions out of the airfield the US bombed is a big “FU” to President Trump, one senator said Sunday.

Like McCain, he wants to go to war all over the place. And then bitch about the war.

Trump said he blew him up over chemical weapons, when Assad uses more chem weapons get back to me. That would be an FU, which I’m sure would garner a No! FU! response. Be interesting to see if either Iran or Putin want that, but absurd to take the side of a murderous dictator against the POTUS from your party.

Well, ostensibly his party. It’s absurd to think that Graham and the rest of the permanent overclass could put up with a northeast liberal as a GOP POTUS who’s not pretty much Lincoln Chafee.

 

It’s funny watching Canadians seeing an invasion of entitled types from a third-world country and not being happy about it.

Canadians have empathy for refugees crossing into the country illegally but their concern over border security trumps (Heh V) all, a newly-released poll reveals.

Angus Reid Institute found that 50% of Canadians believe there’s a significant or huge risk of criminals and other dangerous individuals crossing into Canada through the unguarded border points now used by asylum seekers heading north from the U.S.

Almost three in every four Canadians want the country to focus its resources on monitoring and patrolling the border to discourage more crossings.

So you want to secure your border but we need ours open? Bite me, eh.

 

Anti-racism protesters  segregated themselves by race

That’s absurd. Pretty funny in that today’s totally tolerant anti-racists want all the same things as yesteryear’s totally hated racists, but it just keeps getting more and more absurd. Especially the reason for the self-segregation.

For white accomplices: Please keep in mind that your role at this protest, aside from acting in solidarity with POC students at the 5Cs, particularly Black students, is to serve as a buffer between students of color and the police,” the page states. “That means, if the police come, it is imperative that you stay at the protest with fellow accomplices and engage with cops should it come to that.”…

The instructions also describe an “accomplice meeting” at Scripps College where protesters could learn more information about how to handle themselves in various situations.

Nice to acknowledge the felonious feature of so many leftist protest by calling them “accomplices”, so kudos for that. Not sure why they thought having whitey mix it up with cops would be any better. Haven’t they been watching TV? You need at least one “person of color” beaten to get any airtime.

Absurdity all around.

 

This is totally absurd.

Should ongoing discussions in Salem materialize, voters would see a question on their general election ballots asking if a 172-year-old ban on dueling by public officials — as in, the old-fashioned way of resolving fights — should be erased from the Oregon Constitution.

Duels require a sense of honor. I can count American pols with a sense of honor on the toes of one hand. It would thin their ranks nicely so I’m fer it so long as there’s a budget for advertising when cowardly pols avoid a duel.

 

Illustrating the inherent absurdity of trying to get involved in Syria.

President Donald Trump ordered a Tomahawk cruise military strike against one of the 3,297 factions currently fighting in the Syrian civil war, sources confirmed today.

Just days after the Syrian government, one of the thousands of rebel groups, or al Qaeda terrorists allegedly bombed civilians with chemical weapons, Trump and his military planners launched missiles after mulling options that could potentially punish the perpetrators of such a war crime.

We blew them then up when they pissed us off. That’s all the dealings we should have with “regime change” in Syria. Whoever wins, the region loses. I’d be happier totally getting out and just supplying well-armed jihadis of all stripes to extend the conflict. A flypaper strategy where jihadis fight each other instead of us and Israeli school-children.

 

Man of Steel gets hard, feels his resolve weakening!
