Mostly the first, but some of the second.
Even if you’re not in favor of Trump bombing Syria, it’s been entertaining.
A little digression. Google is going to
push their brand of fake news…stop FAKE NEWS!!!!!! using Snopes and Politifact.
I told you that so I could tell you this.
When Trump spit on Putin and blew up the Syrian airbase
US officials said measures had been put in place to avoid hitting sarin gas they said was stored at the airfield.
I’m not the first to notice or mention it, but is anybody watching cable news? Have any of them (besides, I’d bet, Hannity tonight) mentioned that Obama declared Syria CHEMICAL WEAPON FREE!!!!!!! and if you
pointed and laughed at the abject idiocy of that statement…denied that statement’s brilliance and TRUTH! you were branded a fascist xenophobe?
Wait…A fascist sexist? No, you rarely get two -ists together. Fascist homophobe? It was some sort of -ist and a -phobe…Oh yeah, a racist Islamophobe, that’s what it was.
My expectations (and hopes) for Trump were a Nuke The Moon! thing.
The White House was quick to paint the decision as limited to deterring the use of chemical weapons, and not part of a broader military campaign to remove Assad by force.
“The intent was to deter the regime from doing this again, and it is certainly our hope that this has had that effect,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told reporters.
Blowing their shit up when they piss us off is a good idea. It would be a good accompaniment to my Syria strategy of free transportation for any jihadi, no matter the brand, with a free AK and RPG (while supplies last) when they get off the bus. They’d have to be self-driving buses, we’d go through a bunch but it would be worth it.
Oh, and major kudos for trotting out Jeff (erson?) Davis as spokesman. Subtle but funny, I hope it was on purpose.
There should be a position on Trump’s team that is just to figure out little things to try to get lefties frothing over stupid shit. They won’t all work, but when they do the results are high-larious as CNN freaks out over the color of the napkins at a White House Dinner.
Speaking of which, he should buy a billboard as close to the White House as he can and put TRUMP! on it. He can wait until they stop spinning from “Trump lied when he said Obama wiretapped him!!!!!!” to “Obama was right to wiretap that dangerous man!!!!!!!!!.” to get maximum froth. They’re sort of confused right now. He’s a Russian puppet but he just courted war with Russia. Has MSNBC claimed he wanted to start a war with Russia so we could lose it? Back in the 80s, right wingers thought that. there’s just something hilariously symmetrical about lefties saying it. I hope it happens but I don’t know if I expect it.
I’d hoped but didn’t really expect Nikki Haley to spit in their faces so well.
So now we get to find out if Putin, Iran and the Norks want a war with a crazed POTUS.
They wasted years, they had a free hand in the world and they waited too long to start their wars of conquest.
But that never stopped an invader before (see: Every war in every history book. Ever.)
Speaking of murderous dictators and how to handle them, China! As Trump was meeting with a murderous, commie dictator, he bombed another murderous dictator’s forces and now we see this.
The National Security Council has presented President Trump with options to respond to North Korea’s nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.
Telling our enemies like that is a good idea. I mean, they could have told Foxnews or the Wash Times, but he told NBC! They’re sure to trumpet The Insanity!!!!!! so the murderous, commie dictator would be sure to get the message.
Ace reminds us why he’s the man.

“We’ll Never Know the Motive,” Swedish Police Vow
There’s so much ‘narrative’ in that headline you don’t even need to read the post.
Hmmm, maybe that’s how that started.
Does anybody else think things are interesting and weird?
It doesn’t feel as endy as last year, but I think it’s a lot more endy.
Maybe it’s just that 2 of 3 branches of gov’t have to pretend not to want to spit on us while the third is the only one on our side. Not having your gov’t actively go after you is nice.
It’s also less funny out. I mean, while the media is pretty funny what with all the frothing and foaming, it’s repetitive and stupid so the entertainment value is low, while poison gas and war are only moderately funny as an object lesson in how much Obama lied and Minitrue defended his idiotic, not even plausible, lies.
Let’s see how the Elitest! of our Elite! are doing.
Harvard has a definitional problem.
Graduate students at Harvard University said Donald Trump’s presidential victory pushed them into an “existential” crisis of sadness and despair.
Existential. They’re not going to exist soon so they’re all sad and despairing. I wonder, does that make them goth or emo?
Remember in the “Harry Potter” series when Albus Dumbledore is forced to leave his job as headmaster of the wizard school and the students banded together to form their own underground resistance?
Well, if you don’t, it was called “Dumbledore’s Army,” and some Harvard graduate students are trying to replicate it in response to President Donald Trump. Seriously.
The [female teaching assistant] reported John to Yale upon receiving academic papers from John in which he referenced (and denounced) the crime of rape and rapists to illustrate Plato’s ideas of justice in the Republic. John was also required to take sensitivity training …
Sensitivity training because he thought about Rape. He’s wasn’t in favor of it, he just mentioned it! He’s a man! you see. When he talks about rape he LITERALLY RAPES EVERY WOMAN ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!!
In violation of Yale’s Woodward Report, which says the university upholds the right to “discuss the unmentionable,” Doe became a target precisely because of “Yale’s draconian regulation of his speech” in the philosophy paper,
This is a philosophy class! You can’t think outside the box we mandate!
That’s a nice touch. It shows how Elite they are.
Mea Dumba. Sorta expected, I’ve been sloppy lately.
To which I responded.
I’ll stick up for him.
He didn’t wiretap the Iranians, the Chinese, the Syrians, the Cubans or the Venezualians.
Mark corrects me.
Nor did he wiretap the Norks, Veeshir, nor ISIS, nor Al Qaeda, nor Soros, nor…
Yeah, you got me.
MLB prospect shouldn’t have filmed himself snorting lines
Now that’s spitting on a gigantic pile of money.
I’ll take Secondary Considerations for $1000 Alex
Why the media want to bury the Susan Rice ‘unmasking’ news
Money shot after sorta rehashing much of the last month on any righty blog.
To acknowledge the clear political motive behind those leaks, and behind Rice’s “unmasking,” is to admit that Team Obama abused intelligence data — and that its media friends were complicit in doing so.
The last part of that sentence is absolutely correct, so is the first, so is the middle, but taken together they are a secondary consideration at best.
They are lying about Rice because they will not admit their God-President (He’s still their President! dammit!) committed a heinous act by spying on his political opponent, that’s why they’re complicit.
Last, and what I expect.
My movie review of Ghost in the Shell below the fold.
Now, I haven’t watched it and I won’t until it’s on FX or something, but I’ve been seeing all the Great Reviews!!!!!! and I figure it’s all about Scarlet Johansson’s awesome acting ability!
Like this scene where her acting just shines!
See? That’s awesome emoting. That tells a whole story in just that one
Here we see her Determined!
Firm yet yielding!
This will be her Oscar-scene
her outfit disappears..she disappears you can just feel the erection of a sense of purpose! A sense of movement! A sense of beating your meat!
This is darn funny. Literally just as I was thinking, “I can’t believe they didn’t work a tasteful lezbo scene in” I got to the :59 mark in this trailer.
It’s not the gratuitous titty shots of the 70s and 80s, but I give it One Boner Up.
