Man, I hate moving. I got a 5X8 trailer thinking I had less stuff. Which since I’m not bringing my bed I do, but I forgot the 4 bookcases that took up much of one load. The worst part is that they’re cheap Walmart bookcases so now 2, maybe 3 of them, are half-bookcases. They didn’t travel well.

 

Eh, let’s do a short tube. It’s gonna start with some shit, but get very funny by the end.

We’re gonna start with a double-edged Fuck You.

Just days before he resigns from Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Monday that House and Senate lawmakers should receive a $2,500 per month housing allowance — something he explained would help ease housing costs for members who can’t afford two mortgages or rents.

That’s him saying, Fuck You to us. Congresscorruptocrats become wealthy while in Congress what with all the insider trading it’s totally legal for them to do, and stuff like Hillary Clinton’s cattle-futures deal.

My response is a hearty Fuck You.

But since they write the laws that govern themselves, I’m gonna say, “Most Likely To Happen.” so the last Fuck You is on us.

Cuz they have a low opinion of us and high opinion of themselves. If they had some sort of low-income and assets criteria, I would be fer it. But since they won’t, I don’t feel like giving multi-millionaire and corruptocrat extraordinaire, Nancy Pelosi, $2.5k a month.

 

I hate our media, the shooting of LaVoy Finicum looked very shady but since it was Obama’s Dept of “Justice” killing him, they were not interested. It looked shady to me and apparently, the Dept of “Justice” is actually investigating a crime committed by  Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI.

An FBI agent has been indicted on federal accusations that he lied about firing at Robert “LaVoy” Finicum last year as police arrested the leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation.

This asshole opened fire, guy tried to return fire and he got dead and this asshole walked.

I’m not saying it’s as bad as Waco and Ruby Ridge, but it was not pretty and Finicum should not be dead.

 

The other day I was surprised and thought maybe Vietnam wasn’t as murderously commie as I would expect, they’re still murderous commies though.

A prominent Vietnamese blogger known as ‘Mother Mushroom’ was jailed for 10 years on Thursday, her lawyer said, during a brief trial rights groups decried as “outrageous”.

Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, whose pen name derives from her daughter’s nickname “mushroom”, was arrested in October 2016 and later charged with anti-state propaganda over critical Facebook posts about politics and the environment.

Vietnam’s one-party state keeps a tight clamp on dissent and routinely jails activists, bloggers and lawyers who speak out against the communist regime.

They didn’t murder her, but I doubt ten years in a Vietnamese jail is good for the health.

 

Let The Lawsuits Begin!

The State Department on Thursday announced new criteria to determine who will be allowed to enter the United States as a visitor or a refugee. …But the administration took a particularly strict interpretation of a Supreme Court ruling Monday that only those with “bona fide” relationships, such as close family members, can enter the country.

The administration’s new rules do not allow grandparents, grandchildren, uncles, aunts, cousins and fiances. They do allow sons-in-law, daughters-in-law and stepchildren.

Advocates and lawyers criticized the family list as capricious.

Thank you Supreme Court!

 

Enough shit, let’s get down, let’s get funny!

 

Leftism has really become a copy of the Dark Ages Catholic Church. What with hypocritical leaders, only instead of Bishops having a slew of bastards, we have Al Gore flying his private jet around the world to tell us to stop using so much energy. They are all in on scourging, burning heretics and now, we’re seeing pilgrimages the way Middle Ages folks would travel to the Holy Lands (to get butchered by Muslims, sorta symmetrical there)

Lewis University is seeking a new University Minister to “encourage students to live and understand social justice from a Catholic perspective.”

The new “University Minister, Coordinator of Social Justice Formation” will be tasked with responsibilities such as leading “pilgrimages to locations significant to the movement for social justice” and organizing the school’s annual social justice retreat.

Or is that the Hajj?

I wonder, will they dye their soul-patches green?

 

Back in February I saw an article about a bunch of lefties Training To Take The Fight To The Fascists!!!!!

I used this to illustrate their d’oh jo.

Via Paco, I see I was being kind.

 

 

Froggy would kick their asses. Hell, Darla would kick their asses.

Updated later, I had to change the vid, they took down the embarrassing one that showed intent. if not competence, to commit a felony.

 

Via Uncle, I saw this and it shouldn’t be funny, but I guffawed.

Brentwood police say two suspects came onto the neighbor’s property to rob him…

So what were they going to steal?

They made him open his gunsafe.

“They made him open the safe. After he opened the safe, I guess they weren’t ready for him,”

Then I thought of Bert Gummer.

They certainly tried to break into the wrong godam rec room, stupid bastards.

 

Now, I don’t like to argue with URLs, but…. I will link for finding this.

I can’t argue with the first two but I feel we are not afraid enough of the Japanese. The Chinese are riling them up, no need for us to do it as well.

I’m not sure where I’d use it, probably the Moon. It’s been neglected for far too long.

 

Some people just don’t get it.

Since I’m late for another trip to the new place, I just felt like not moving for a little while, no editing!

I called Summit and told them they fucked me. I told them they need to give me a check for $3,000 to pay for putting the engine in a car, pulling the engine out of the car and putting it back into another car.

The rest of what I spent is my problem, but they really need to step up. In the FAQ section at Blueprint, they have this picture next to the question, Will it pass emissions?

I figured you just put a catalytic converter on and it passed emissions. That’s why I called Summit, so they make sure I didn’t spend $4k on the wrong engine.

I’m moving this week, too bad I don’t have a vehicle I could use to help move like a pick-up or an El Camino. My buddy has a pick-up but it’s in rough shape, I think I’ll have to rent something.

Speaking of Caballeroing, I talked to some people and then the mechanic who has my Caballero about changing the cam shaft.

Everybody knowledgeable, including the mechanic who after talking to me looked into it last week, say it’s a bad idea. Don’t screw with a brand-new performance engine, it’ll screw everything up. 

So….the Caballero is soon to be a shell without an engine. Possibly full of bullet holes. Maybe some buckshot, I do have a new shotgun I haven’t fired yet.

For its last tow I’m thinking of taking it on Apache Trail between Apache Lake and Roosevelt, they have good parking there! Some people have been parking there since there have been cars in AZ!

If you have a Sikorsky and want something from 100 or more years ago, they’re there for the taking! Hell, you might even find a 1979 Caballero if you wait a week or 70! (depending on whether it fucks with me as hard taking the engine out as it did putting it in)

I can either go back to either 62 or 57 to get a Chevy small block to fit without modifications (I’m trying to figure out the year) and only go up to 66 for emissions purposes.

GMs in that year range are expensive, ratty Chevelles with bad interior and bad exterior are $5k, forget about El Caminos.

The mechanic said he knows guy who could put it in something else. My buddy in VA says he can put a Chevy small block in anything, like a Miata, this guy says he knows some people who can do that.

I’m going to look for something pre-66, possibly a Ranchero, which is what I wanted anyway or I keep seeing a 65 Barracuda without an engine that needs a paint job an engine and trans. I have an engine and a trans! I’m not sure if a Chevy small block would destroy the value, but I don’t care at this point.

Aaahhhh, let’s look at stuff that makes my  Caballero travails look picayune!

 

On that deal where our destroyer hit a container ship, this is ‘anonymous sources’ so take it for what it’s worth.

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship’s captain.

I was leaning toward the container ship being jihadi, but now I’m leaning toward some soon to be Ensign-For-Life being on the bridge and screwing up by the numbers.

 

Aww, poor Megyn Kelly,

Long knives are unsheathed for Megyn Kelly from both sides of the political spectrum. When she took on then-candidate Trump, she began to lose conservatives, and sealed the deal with her sexual harassment accusations that accompanied her departure from Fox for the liberal pastures of Comcast’s NBC.

Now, in the words of Scott Greer, deputy editor of the Daily Caller, “Liberals no longer want Megyn Kelly.”

 

Liberals never wanted her, just people from the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party (media section), she thought she could go full Never-Trumper and it would be a good career move. She needed to go full lefty, like Alyson Camerota did after leaving Fox. Megyn just didn’t realize that Foxnews was the only place where you could actually think for yourself.

 

Speaking of going full lefty, this self-help/how-to guide makes me laugh.

It’s hard to imagine any reader of George Orwell’s 1984 could forget the fate of poor Winston, but some theatregoers seem to have slid it into their own personal memory hole.

A new stage adaptation of Orwell’s post-war dystopian classic is leaving audiences reeling over its graphic depictions of torture…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s previews on Broadway had viewers fainting, throwing up, and screaming for mercy to the actors from their seats during the title’s notorious ‘Room 101’ torture scenes.

The trade-rag also cited the production’s stomach-churning strobe lights and “jackhammer” sound effects as sources of audience distress.

Room 101 is not fun when you’re the one being punished for wrongthink. Just ask Milo Yiannopoulos.

This made me laugh

1984‘s current run comes as interest in Orwell’s novel skyrocketed in the wake of Donald Trump’s US election win last November.

It’s like ringing a bell at Pavlov’s dog, whenever a ‘journalist’ writes something it needs to bash Trump.

I will say it’s too bad there hasn’t been another POTUS or prospective POTUS who was a vicious lefty who had a cult-of-personality thing going that we could have compared to 1984.

 

Arguing with headlines!

TDS: NY Times Decides To Take Iran’s Side Against Trump

Decides? They’ve been taking Iran’s side against America since the instant Ronnie Raygun was sworn in. More recently, they had 8 years of cheering on a POTUS who took Iran’s side against America at every opportunity. Where has RWN been?

 

Prof will not be rehired following Otto Warmbier remarks

If he had been Of Color!, no lefty would have even thought of saying something like that, so that’s why it was said.

Except for “what he deserved”, I mostly agree.

I’ve said the kid was an idiot, I won’t say he deserved what happened but he did put himself in a position where it was likely.

Don’t go to murderous dictatorships. They’re murderous. And dictatorial. And they hate America and Americans.

This same prof probably would have encouraged him to go to See Other Cultures!!!! cuz they’re all equal and murderous dictators are just friends we haven’t met yet.

 

Some of the links above and below are from Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, you should be reading there.

 

Okay, this makes me laugh. Iran learns from the Goracle!

The rally also inaugurated a huge digital countdown display at Tehran Palestine Square, showing that Israel will allegedly cease to exist in 8,411 days.

In 2015, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei predicted that after 25 years — by 2040 — there will no longer be a State of Israel.

 

20+ years away. Now that’s how you predict!

That way, they don’t have to keep changing their predictions when Israel stays stubbornly undestroyed, sorta like the North Pole being all rude and ice-full even though Gore promised us it would be ice-free 4 years ago, or 5 years ago, or 6 years ago…..or 12 years ago.

 

Supreme Court Legislates!

The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration mostly enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it…

The court did leave one category of foreigners protected, those “with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,” the court said in an unsigned opinion. (emphasis me V)

When did the Supreme Court get a line-item veto? The POTUS doesn’t have that but they do?

And what the hell is a “credible claim of a bona fide…?”

I’ll tell you what it is, it’s a Lawyer Employment Decision. If it wasn’t they would have said, “Married or child or parent” or something specific. Or are they saying they’ll only let Vernon T. Waldrip in? He’s bona fide.

Yeah, I’m sick of rule by Bureaucratic Lawyers, the bureaucrats make sure bureaucracies expand and lawyers as judges and pols who make stuff vague enough to ensure lawyers get to gum up the works while siphoning money from the productive.

 

More Arguing With Headlines!

President Trump Has Now Signed 40 Pieces Of Legislation As He Moves To Enact His Agenda

Let’s see what ‘enacting his agenda’ means.

The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

What? We’re dumping money on Global Warmmongers? Whose agenda is that? Hillary fucking Clinton’s, that’s who.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase from $19.3 billion in 2016 — and also asks that NASA create a plan for getting humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.”

I can give you a plan for a lot less, get NASA out of space flight. If they still had shuttles working I’d feel differently, but now that they’ve spent years Muslim Outreaching and global warmmongering they have nothing to provide. Offer $500 million or $billion to the first one to reach Mars. That would save us tens of $billions while also getting us there 10-1,000 years earlier while ensuring we won’t just go there, drop off some crap and leave never to go back.

Fifteen of the 40 signed bills repeal Obama-era regulations. Examples of these regulations include a rule that made it tougher for states to drug test welfare recipients and a regulation that imposed permitting requirements on mining sites. These bills signed by President Trump utilized the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to nullify any rule or regulation created in the previous administration’s final six months.

That’s not so bad, but he’s been doing that stuff with his Pen and Phone, all most of those bills do is spend money.

The point is that none of them address immigration, Obamacare or pissing in Chuck Schumer’s Cheerios so they’re not Trump’s agenda.

 

The worst was all the ‘bi-partisan’ bills. Those always suck. They’re either fluff, lefty priorities or a declaration of war.

 

So we all saw CNN lie, realize this lie was above and beyond the call of idiocy, and retract the story. The retraction was the surprise for me, they usually just memory hole that shit.

The scandal surrounding CNN’s mishandling of a very fake news hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates grows bigger on Sunday night as the network’s president Jeff Zucker and public relations team are refusing to comment to anyone…

This is the extra-touch that makes me laugh.

“The truth is, there’s still a lot we don’t know,” Stelter (CNN’s media watchdog V) wrote. “On Saturday and Sunday I asked CNN PR for details and comment. A network spokeswoman declined to comment as of Sunday evening.”

Did anybody watch Howard Kurtz this weekend? Did he touch on this? I ask because when he was media watchdogging for the Wash Post and working for CNN he ignored another of their media-malpractice deals, I figure he ignored it again.

Cuz he’s a media defender, a sorta cut-rate Tom Sawyer, not a media watchdog.

I can help with this.

CNN’s president Zucker, both Breitbart News and BuzzFeed News have confirmed, is leading an internal investigation into what went wrong and who was responsible.

It was the head of CNN and every editor as well, who’ve all been encouraging lying hitjobs crediting anonymous sources that caused this. It wasn’t much worse than many other lies they’ve published lately so I really am surprised they didn’t just memory hole it or change it to, “Some say…” or something.

I will bet a dollar there’s a Winston Smith somewhere in CNN HQ saying, “See! I told you we should have just memory-holed it!”

 

This is winning!

Except for the last part, I see lots of stories claiming it’s happening and lots of stories claiming it’s a lie, but they’re all from 2009-2013.

If I had seen any recent stories I’d assume the global worming lefties were doing what they do best, lie to obfuscate the issue (see, global worming pause), but since I can’t find a recent article I figure it was, “We’re gonna sue him and it’s going to be awesome!!!!” sort of a deal.

 

Okay, this makes me laugh. Melania is doing boob belts.

Oh what a difference an ejection makes!

Which leads us to a question.

Who refused whom?

That’s like saying, Ideal Auto in Apache Junction, fresh off lying about the car they sold me, refuses to sell me another car!

 

 

When I teach math I always tell students they need to know what they know. They always think that’s stupid.

Then I ask them 1/4+1/4 and get blank looks. I ask them 3/4+2/4 and get blank looks. I ask them .4+.75 and get blank looks.

Then I ask them what a quarter plus a quarter is. They all know  it’s a 1/2 dollar or $.50. I ask them 3 quarters plus 2 quarters, they know it’s 5 quarters or $1 and a quarter or $1.25. They also all know that 40 cents plus 75 cents is $1.15.

They didn’t know what they knew. If you’re in a car and ask someone how long it’ll take to get where you’re going they’ll look at the speedometer, see 60mph, look at how far, 60 miles, and say 1 hour. If you ask them the same question on a math test you’ll get 60 hours, 1/2 hour, 30 miles and 45mph as answers. True story.

Let’s see what we know that we don’t know we know!

 

Unknown politicians always do better than known politicians!

Stooksbury spent precisely $0 on his campaign and has never been seen in public. Jon Ossoff had the entire national Democratic Party pulling out the stops for him, and flooded Atlanta television with ten million dollars in advertising. Drastically improving on the Stooksbury numbers should be no dazzling feat.(Although, somewhat hilariously, Stooksbury actually got more total votes than Ossoff, 124,917 to Ossoff’s 124,893. Granted, special elections have lower turnout, but good grief.)”

Heh.

 

This one we all knew that we knew but our fine political and media betters are still pretending they didn’t know what we all knew.

The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS:

Yeah, that ain’t so much Blockbuster!!!!! as yawn, we all knew that. But wait, there’s still more!!!!!!! (we all knew)

No surprise there. What is shocking is the FBI’s apparent involvement in the effort to smear Trump with false rumors:

Wait, you mean Hillary’s Bitches were going after her opponents!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, we watched that exact thing happen last November, December, January and stopped talking about it in February because there were so many other lies the FBI was promulgating that old ones were pushed off the headlines.

 

Muslim nations think we’re nitwits and screw with us every chance they get! We all know that but we’re supposed to pretend not, because those nations have lots of oil which means they can afford lots of politicians and ‘journalists’.

A Libyan terror suspect imprisoned in the UK was put in charge of guarding David Cameron on an official visit to Tripoli in 2011, it emerged last night.

That’s the same as Iran constantly putting assholes involved in holding American hostages, making terror war and other murderously asshole actions in charge of negotiations with the west.

 

Let’s Common Sense and Wonder for a minute.

 

Lefties let their politics rule every aspect of their lives and feel that they can ignore every aspect of polite society in furtherance of their politics is something we all know but we’re supposed to ignore.

A southern California high school teacher who served as student body faculty adviser stepped down from that role after allegedly rigging student elections — and apparently against conservative candidates.
Principal Mick Wager emailed parents of students at Vista Murrieta High School on June 16 saying the company that handled the elections confirmed fraudulent votes altered the outcomes of the races for 2019 class president, 2019 secretary and 2018 class president, the Press-Enterprise said.

Fire that asshole. Never allow her in any position of authority ever. Take away her ant farm.

 

Is Vietnam run by less murderously commie dictators?

I knew they were a commie dictatorship but, since they murdered everybody they thought by be against them long ago, I have to wonder if they might have become less murderous.

A Vietnamese dissident blogger with dual French citizenship arrived in Paris on Sunday after he was stripped of his birth nationality by authorities in the one-party state and deported.
Former mathematics lecturer Pham Minh Hoang was put on a plane to Paris late Saturday, weeks after his Vietnamese citizenship was revoked — a rare move that has sparked outrage among critics of the communist government who accuse it of quashing dissent by any means available.

Kicking him out is a lot nicer than actions murderous commie dictatorships usually employ. I mean, they’re not imprisoning him as a mobile “organ-donor” farm or working him to death in some “work-camp” or just putting a bullet in his head and dumping him on his front stoop for his kids to find in the morning on their way to school.

Interesting.

 

Something we all knew but we’re supposed to pretend we don’t, Prince Charles is an ignorant fool!

Robert Colvile’s excellent article on Prince Charles’s misunderstanding of the causes of African poverty provides a good opportunity to take a closer look at Africa’s economic history.

African poverty was not caused by colonialism, capitalism or free trade

Yeah, Africa’s problems stem from many things.

I’d say one of the biggest was creating countries full of enemies. Rwanda is the most extreme example of that, but look at Kenya. One tribe is in charge of the army, another is in charge of the air force. The Masai, who were the baddest asses around before the Europeans showed up, are out of power and treated poorly. The rest of the tribes hate them and have hated them for centuries.

Another cause is that we give $billions to countries that go to the rulers who use it to buy palaces, Mercedes and tanks, not wells or adequate roads or power distribution.  Vicious, murderous warlords masquerading as gov’ts are what keeps Africa down along with cynical assholes who pay them off to get at the natural resources like diamonds, gold and all the other things Africa has in abundance. It’s cheaper to buy an African warlord than to do the same thing in Europe or the Americas or even Asia in many cases.

 

This one bothers me. We all know that Che was a horrible racist and he was Fidel’s buddy, but everybody pretends Cuba is not very racist as well as murderously commie.

Castrogonia is one of the most profoundly racist countries on earth, but rarely does this issue surface in the world’s press.

According to Castro regime census figures, somewhere around 60 percent of Cubans today self-identify as “white.”  But that percentage is probably much lower.  The discrepancy between facts and the Castro census is widely acknowledged…

So, the real truth is the majority of Cubans today are blacks or mulattoes.  Yet, despite the high percentage of Afro-Cubans in the population, nearly all of the top posts in Cuba’s oligarchy and in the Castro economic monopoly are held by whites.

A disproportionate number of Afro-Cubans live in the most dilapidated neighborhoods and in the worst housing…

A racist comment often used by Castro oligarchs to describe any machinery that works well is: “esto debe haberlo inventado un blanco.” (This must have been invented by a white person)

 

That’s one of the reasons I refuse to watch Danny Glover movies. Not only did he make $millions in movies glorifying guns as he’s all “Only the gov’t should have guns!”, he thinks Fidel, whose gov’t uses their monopoly on guns to be murderously commie, is a good guy. Fidel is a murderously horrible racist and fucking Glover acts as though I’m a racist.

I can take all the idiocy from every other Hollywood idiot, but Glover goes above and beyond the usual idiocy to agitate for a man who would kill him without a qualm or second thought if Glover were a resident of Cuba. Instead, he lives a life-style that 99.9999999999999999% of every human who ever lived could not even understand. Augustus called and said, “I wish I could live like Glover!”

 

Since China owns much of our Democratic media/entertainment political complex, we have to pretend that we don’t know that China is an empire that wants to expand. They do that by bribing local gov’ts (Like Obama’s for instance) to move in their own people and that pisses off Teh Peepul affected.

Pakistan has deployed a 15,000-strong military force to protect Chinese nationals working on energy and infrastructure projects in the country, President Mamnoon Hussain said on Sunday, after the abduction of a Chinese couple raised safety concerns.

China sends people all over the place to change the ethnography, much as Muslims are doing in Europe. China’s been doing it in Tibet and in the Vladivostok area most notably, but they’re also doing it in Panama and places in Africa. What happens when China sends a few million people to a country of 10 million? China will not even notice the loss but places like Panama are swamped.

 

Even though all of our fine political, social, moral and intellectual betters pretend otherwise, a good guy with a gun often beats a bad guy with a gun.

 

There’s a difference between some thug with a gun and someone who’s thought about what it means and is mentally prepared.

 

This one doesn’t fit, it’s what we all wish we could see.

Department of Veterans Affairs Phone Outreach Assistance Specialist Janice Edlers has been on hold with Comcast since 10 a.m., sources report.

“This is not just incredibly frustrating, it’s disrespectful and demoralizing,” said Edlers, who routinely leaves her phone off the hook in her cubicle in a Department of Veterans Affairs Call Center while she makes coffee, gets a snack, or texts with her boyfriend.

 

It would be better if it was an Obamacare hotline, but we all know our fine governmental betters don’t have to deal with that shit.

Take Out Your Squeezy Bulbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Trey Gowdy Finds Out DNC Never Turned Their Hacked Server Over To Law Enforcement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND HE DEMANDS ANSWERS!!!!!!!!!!

 

Yeah, we all knew that long ago, this is from January.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE Democratic National Committee hack and Russia’s alleged involvement have been swirling for months,…

the DNC told Buzzfeed on Wednesday that neither the FBI nor any other intelligence agency ever did an independent assessment of the organization’s breached servers…

This posturing is at a strange time.

On the one hand, it’s a year early to get us riled up to STAND UP TO THE DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But it’s what they know. Hold Hearings!!!!!!!! and Demand Answers!!!!!!!!!!!!, they’re obviously going to just keep them going. They worked so well during the Obama years.

The biggest take-away is that they’re doing that instead of what they’ve been elected to do. It’s like a flash-bang thrown into a crib on a no-knock raid, it’s to distract you from your dog being shot.

 

Speaking of feckless Republicans, this must really piss them off.

Forbes magazine scoffed at Donald Trump on Thursday:
Trump Can’t Make Apple’s iPhone Manufacturing Come Back — And It Wouldn’t Help If He Could

Yes, what could Trump possibly know about business? He only has a degree from Wharton and built a $10 billion global conglomerate.

Worstall’s post went online at 8:01 a.m.

Two hours later, Nikkei Asian review posted:
Apple could make iPhones in US in future: sources

Trump keeping campaign promises and winning. That’s just not a GOP priority.
I wonder if he’s gonna campaign for the GOP next year. I hope he’s selective about it. I also would love it if he came and endorsed someone primarying Flake. We really need to get rid of Flake and McCain.

It would be pretty funny if electing a popular GOP POTUS is the catalyst for getting a new party to oppose the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party.

 

The Washington Free Beacon, fresh off bashing Trump for idiotic lefty fakenews/lies, notices reality.

Events are turning me into a radical skeptic. I no longer believe what I read, unless what I am reading is an empirically verifiable account of the past. I no longer have confidence in polls, because it has become impossible to separate the signal from the noise. What I have heard from the media and political class over the last several years has been so spectacularly proven wrong by events, again and again, that I sometimes wonder why I continue to read two newspapers a day before spending time following journalists on Twitter. Habit, I guess. A sense of professional obligation, I suppose. Maybe boredom.

Yeah, we’ve been watching that. From a high of 4 or 5, I was down to one newspaper a couple weeks ago and now I’m on none. I was almost done with the Free Beacon what with all the pushing lying fakenews bullshit.

 

Holy Shit. That’s all I can say about this

 

Kids are annoying! Don’t have any!

Only a childless asshole with childless asshole friends who sit around drinking Zima making fun of ‘breeders’ could not see the absolute horror in that happy video.

 

 Coup Coup

Mueller legal team approaching size of entire US Attorney’s Office for Rhode Island

Subhed

They are not investigating a crime. They are organizing a search party to find a crime.

That is almost as dangerous to our way of life as a Hillary POTUS would have been. The reason it isn’t is that, while Minitrue has been trying to pretend he hasn’t, Trump has been slapping them around pretty handily, I hope he keeps it up.

 

Since everything is relative, we find that we don’t have the worst politicians in the world.

Among the politicians are member of the Vitrolles municipal council who represents the Republicans Christian Borelli; member of the council of the Bouches-du-Rhône from the Debout la France (France Arise) Party Christiane Pujol and her husband; as well as president of the local branch of the National Center of Independents and Peasants of the Bouches-du-Rhône department Hubert Fayard, Europeiska Pravda reported referring to La Provence.

On June 22, they departed from Marseille for Moscow, then they will go to occupied Donetsk. The aim of the visit, according to the French publication, is “to support the Russian army, which is being constantly attacked by Ukraine, despite the Minsk agreements.”

 

So we that going for us.

It does lead to a question, did Russia hack their election too?

 

Pakistan is having quite the terrorist war in their country.

At least 67 people were killed and more than 200 injured after two subsequent explosions hit a densely populated area of Kurram Agency’s Parachinar city Friday evening…

 

The second explosion targeted rescuers and bystanders who rushed to aid those who had been hurt in the first blast.

You see stories like that an awful lot in Pak press.

I wonder which brand of terrorist that is. Is it the Taliban? The Pakistan Taliban? ISIS? Iran? The Popular Front of Palestine? The Palestinian Popular Front?

 

My one niece is 29, she was a straight A student in HS and a 4.0 in college, she zoomed through Albany Law School.

She is very ignorant of history and literature, it drives me crazy. I’ll say something and she’ll think I’m weird for expecting her to know what I said. I’m weird for entirely different reasons.

Steyn sez,

The other day I mentioned en passant that the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton, which used to be a widely recognized line (if somewhat apocryphal) of the Duke of Wellington’s. An hour later, some cocksure keyboard warrior responded that I was a total fake-news f**ktard and such a douchebag that I was apparently unaware that the Battle of Waterloo was in fact won somewhere in Belgium.

They get angry when you use some totally commonplace saying or word. My favorite was the teacher in MD who got beaten bloody for using the word, “niggardly”. He didn’t think it was funny, neither did I but it was either laugh or get frustratingly angry.

Righteous ignorance is one of the worst aspects of today.

People who are so totally ignorant of the past cannot understand how we got where we are and how precious and rare it is in the blood-soaked massacre that is human history.

 

Fighting Back!

Baltimore, Md. businesses filed a lawsuit against the city for failing to protect their property during the 2015 Freddie Gray riots.

Nice. I hope they win $brazillions. I give you exhibit A in the lawsuit

Give them room to destroy. Mission Accomplished! They Destroyed!

Now Baltimore Taxpayers get to pay up.

 

We’ll be a long time recovering from Obama, war on our southern border is a big part of his legacy.

WARNING ADVISORY TO BORDER PATROL AGENTS IN RGV SECTOR

Recent events in Tamaulipas, Mexico, specifically in and around the city of Reynosa, pose a special risk to U.S. Border Patrol agents working in the region.

The Reynosa faction of the Mexican Gulf Cartel recently lost its leader and the group is engaging in open warfare with Mexican authorities and possibly with rival factions or other transnational criminal groups. Open source reports indicate gunbattles and use of grenades and other explosives in the fighting.

Border Patrol agents working the line in any station’s area of operations immediately across the largely open border from Reynosa, Mexico, are advised to employ extra caution in the performance of their duties. Stray rounds from firearms have previously injured U.S. law enforcement personnel on the border.

They had to worry about Obama’s gun running and now cartels, embolded and empowered by Obama’s porous borders, are now using hand grenades against American border agents.

And they still probably have the restrictive Rules of Engagement. I’m not saying they should be free-fire zones, but any threat should be treated quickly and overwhemingly. It’s unfair to them otherwise since they’re fighting people with fucking hand-grenades.

This is not new,

REYNOSA — Fear and panic filled the streets of Reynosa on Sunday night as rival gunmen battled during a three-hour firefight that saw automatic weapons and grenades used. Surprisingly, Mexican authorities were absent for most of the melee

“There were four trucks filled with bodies that (members of organized crime) picked up,” the official said. “That is not counting the (bodies) that were left behind.”

I wonder if Mexican authorities moved to Baltimore afterward?

 

The Vill Uh Gez!

An early-morning raid broke the relative quiet of a large Florida retirement community (The Villages V) that turned up drugs, weapons and — in a distinctly Florida twist — evidence of a golf cart chop shop.

When I was in VA I saw their commercials constantly, I have to admit I didn’t expect that.

After watching Seinfeld I should have.

 

Okay Australia, your serve.

As Tropical Storm Cindy moves into Alabama, bringing potential flooding to the state, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System is reminding residents to be wary of displaced, sometimes floating, fire ant colonies during and after flooding.

Floods don’t kill fire ants, they just move the colonies around a bit, according to Extension entomologists.

The ants join together by the thousands, trapping enough air to float on the water’s surface in a makeshift life raft and survive for days, weeks or even months until they find dry land again.

Although I’d hate to think what would be floating there.

 

You know, sometimes the news puts my Caballero travails in perspective.

The contractor who Holland said ripped him off, then faked his own death to get out of paying him back for a botched renovation, who left Holland and his cancer-stricken wife with nowhere to live, was still among the living.

None of my mechanics have played dead.

Yet.

Get out your squeezy bulbs!!!!! We have more hearings!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

This leads us to just one question.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

Isn’t it early to be posturing? The important election is more than a year away, why throw this posturing pander until closer to the election? Oh wait, last week they were praising Trey Gowdy for keeping another Hearing!!!!! going for over a year, maybe they’re competing to see how long they can keep the proles riled up with Hearings!!!!!! and Committees!!!!!!!.

You know who isn’t going to investigate the behavior of the Dept. of “Justice” during the last election?

The Dept. of “Justice” that’s who. The only ones who could actually do any fucking good but would be investigating themselves. While they know who did what to whom, it’s because they’re the who and they’re still doing the what. The whom is us.

All we’re gonna get is fish in the face.

 

Totally not relatedly, we’re on day 1506 of the IRS ‘Scandal’ that nobody seems to be interested in.

Nonetheless, on March 22, 2016, in the case of United States v. NorCal Tea Party Patriots, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit disagreed with this interpretation and determined that tax exempt application information is not “return information,” and thus not protected from § 6103 disclosure. The Sixth Circuit’s ruling directly contravenes a previous District of Columbia Circuit ruling on the issue and is likely to expose attempts by the IRS to intervene in United States politics via the tax-exemption application process and 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(3). This Comment discusses the basics of §§ 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), the attempts by the IRS to engage in politics using § 501(c), the conflicting holdings and United States circuit courts’ various interpretations of § 6013 protection for the IRS, and the future implications of the circuit split created by the Sixth Circuit’s holding in NorCal. …

Wait, the IRS lost a court case! That’s never happened before!!!! That’ll change….abso fucking lutely nothing.

They’ve lost so many court cases and told the court to suck their balls that I just don’t see how the law-enforcement agency that’s been ignoring that is going to suddenly investigate themselves or anyone on ‘their’ team.

 

Speaking of our gov’t fucking us, I can’t believe I didn’t even expect this.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT QUIETLY HELPED AND REWARDED COMPANIES AND UNIVERSITIES WHICH HIRED ROUGHLY 330,000 CHEAP FOREIGN GRADUATES IN 2016 INSTEAD OF HIRING AMERICAN GRADUATES, MANY OF WHOM ARE DEEP IN DEBT.
The little-known “Optional Practical Training” program has grown from 91,140 new foreign job-seekers in 2009 to 329,158 new job-seekers in 2016, according to data provided by the Department of Homeland Security. That is almost a four-fold increase in seven years — and the program is growing even larger in 2017.

Once again, I was not paranoid enough. That’s happened to me more in the last 10 years than in the previous 40.

I can understand at least part of the reason for doing that, hiring angry race-studies majors is not a good idea, but surely there are a few hundred thousand qualified Americans out there they could have hired.

 

No for something totally unexpected!

You know, if I trusted these assholes I’d be more likely to…uhhh…trust them.

Among fans of the noir crime classic “Pulp Fiction,” there are some wild theories about what was inside the mystical briefcase that Marsellus Wallace dispatched his men to collect. The joke, of course, is on the audience. There’s something unthinkable in there, something that glows and hums, something perhaps supernatural … but we’ll never find out what.

As of this writing, a Senate Republican’s odds of guessing the contents of that briefcase are about as good as his odds of guessing what’s inside this famed Obamacare replacement plan.

No, not even Sen. Mike Lee, who was himself recruited into a working group that he and others thought would “be in charge of writing this bill,” has set eyes on the thing…

Recruiting Mike Lee was just another fish in my face, he’s being used. I hope that pisses him off. You know they knew better than to try that shit on Ted Cruz, he’s already called McConnell a lying bitch.

Repeal And Replace! is “fix”, so neither ‘repeal’ nor ‘replace’. As Obamacare is collapsing before our eyes, as more and more companies are opting out, these assholes are trying to keep the power. Any bill they use to Repeal And ReplaceTM will require vast influxes of our great grandchildren’s money.

At least we aren’t going to have to pay for it. Well, maybe with societal collapse, but at least taxes will be lower for a while. Until the warlords take over I guess. Since I’m hoping for that position myself, my taxes will still be low.

 

I agree!

‘It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans’ if Nancy Pelosi steps down, Trump says  5 Hours Ago | 00:54
President Donald Trump said he hopes House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi does not step down from her post.

In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” that aired on Friday, Trump said he would like Pelosi to stay right where she is because she has an “extraordinary record against her.”

“It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down. I would be very disappointed if she did,” Trump said.

Without Nancy using her charm to keep the Democrats in lockstep the GOP might have to actually explain why they’re not able to do what they’ve been elected to do.

 

Our fine minitrue betters are all upset.

“We have urged the White House not to replace on-camera briefings with ‘gaggles,’ not-for-broadcast question & answer sessions,” Mason said in a statement.

Yeah, nobody watches them anymore, they’re just a bunch of angry children whining at Spicer.

“We believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media, in keeping with the principles of the First Amendment and the need for transparency at the highest levels of government,”

That ship has sailed. You assholes are not “independent” except in the sense that you’re a herd of assholes who hate Trump. We just got done with the most transparent administration ever and you assholes ignored all the felonies they transparently committed. Pardon us if we don’t give shit one about you angry, Democrat, partisan ignoramuses.

 

Speaking of angry ignoramuses, Johnny Depp!

Johnny Depp: ‘When Was the Last Time an Actor Assassinated a President?’

That would be the last time a Republican angered Democrats by trying to get blacks out of their clutches.

It’s funny how the FBI declared that there was no way that guy was hunting Republicans, and of course, this is not a call to hunt the POTUS.

Cuz lefties are all tolerant, loving and mostly-peaceful.

Via my favorite light in the darkness.

 

Trump’s been about the best case scenario for me. I knew he’d do northeast GOP stuff, but I’d hoped he cut regulations and screw with all the idiots. Mission Accomplished.

I’d also hoped that, being the CEO type he is, he’d hire really good people and leave them alone to do their jobs.

Trump’s reliance on his generals shows that he values merit over politics.

Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation’s most accomplished generals to direct his national-security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H. R. McMaster (national-security adviser), and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security).

In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals — along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO — have already recalibrated America’s defenses.

I figure he told Tillerson and Mattis to have fun, just don’t launch nukes without letting him know first.

 

Shit for sale!

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials…

Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate.

Nobody’s buying. Especially after all the non-information ‘information’ we’ve been getting.

 

Cultural suicide is pretty sad.

The “interfaith” movement has reached an important milestone: a mosque has been constructed inside a church in Berlin. Everyone is excited and happy about this significant event, which allows people of all faiths to come together under one roof in peace and harmony and etc blah yak.

Inside their church? How about when an Orthodox priest can have mass in the Hagia Sophia?

I won’t want to laugh, but I might have to when a guy comes out of the mosque and blows himself up in the church.

 

I haven’t read the article, and I’m not gonna because I’ve read enough stupid shit today and, while this might not be stupid, it surely looks that way, but I love the headline.

BRITAIN ORDERS IMMEDIATE PROBE INTO FRIDGE THAT STARTED DEADLY BLAZE

That headline epitomizes Akbar Britain in a way that nothing I write could. Like when they investigate people who say bad things about Muslims instead of investigating the Muslims who keep murdering their subjects.

 

Let’s Chicago! It’s like Venezuela except with fewer cops.

Remember when we had citywide units? A few hundred cops that the Department could call out for situations exactly like this? This event isn’t a secret – it’s been going on for years. Units like the old Task Force morphed into Gangs morphed into Special Operations, Targeted Response or Mobile Strike Force. Three-hundred cops who could have days off canceled at a moment’s notice along with District Gang/Tact teams gave the Department a force of 500 or so to deal something like this ..

Now CPD has 25 cars show up? For a crowd numbering 1,000? A crowd that’s been drinking and smoking all night without any interference from authorities? With (we’re betting) a few hundred guns? And nothing has been done for years? In a city that has abandoned the rule of law? What exactly are the police supposed to do?

That can’t end well. Rahm does not understand how to run a crime family like Chicago. He’s spending far too much of their money paying off his buddies while screwing over the city.

He’ll leave soon and everybody will say he failed but he will have siphoned off $billions for himself and his friends. The misery he leaves behind is not his concern. It’s a hallmark of Clintons and their istas after all.

 

Paying attention to reality is not our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters’ forte.

…three Little League baseball games on the West Side during an event this week meant to build connections between two Chicago neighborhoods that grapple with violence.

 

So how did those games go? See those first ellipses?

Gunfire interrupted three Little League baseball games…

Yeah, about how anybody with a clue would expect. I am a little surprised they didn’t beat on each other using the bats.

Sorry, I forgot the score.

at least nine shots were fired around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday. No one was hit, but the fields were cleared.

A shutout! It’s not often Chicago gets a shutout. In gangland, that’s the opposite of a pitcher’s duel. You’d think after last year’s World Series of murder victory they’d be better but that’s what happens when you get cocky.

 

Is there such a word as “de-teaching“?

 

If not, that math ‘teacher’ just made it up.

Imagine the poor kid trying to explain that each cut will take 10 minutes with the teacher condescendingly explaining that each piece takes 5 minutes.

I had a chuckler to end on but really, it would be anti-climactic. I’ll save it for a less funny day.

Or rather, not.

I can’t figure out what’s going on here.

Venezuela’s opposition has announced it will be installing a parallel government outside the influence of current President and dictator Nicolás Maduro.

What good will that do? It’ll be interesting, but somehow I don’t think I’d like to be actually involved.

 

This pisses me off.

U.S. aircraft maker Lockheed Martin and the Indian defense firm Tata Advanced Systems Limited signed an agreement this week affirming the companies’ intent to set up a joint production facility for F-16 Block 70 fighter jets in India.

We need that shit here.

A festival in Ohio is trying to make it okay for women to go topless.

an injunction against law enforcement agencies from punishing women for going topless at the popular event.

According to organizers, state liquor agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit have allegedly threatened to file charges against ComFest or shut down alcohol sales at the festival if topless women are allowed to attend and remain at the festival.

Being a titty man, You would think I’d be fer it but I’m agin it. Most of the women who take their tops off in public should keep them on.

 

I tried watching news today, CNN was going on and on about Trump denying he had tapes showing Comey to be the lying sack of shit he is. They were very indignant, all I heard was, “He Trolled Us!!!” I just flipped over and they’re still going on about. Pretty darn funny.

 

There’s just not much going on that’s new or unexpected, it’s all the same crap. It’s funny, I never thought I ‘d miss the annual, “Sharks are eating people!!!!!!!!!!!” media frenzy when people go back to the beach.

 

A comment at Stoaty’s yesterday reminded me of this guy. Michael Moschen. I’ve always figured he was a math nerd who took lots of acid and became a juggler.

This is long, but it’s mesmerizing. The first coupla minutes are a little slow, but once he drops the first ball it gets very impressive.

 

It might have an “adult content” warning, it’s cuz he’s wearing some weird looking, hippy loincloth.

 

If you want to take less time, here he is ‘juggling’ in a triangle.

 

That is freaky. There are times where it’s nearly impossible to see him catch the balls, they’re suddenly in his hand. Sometimes you can barely see him throw the ball, they’re just suddenly careening around the triangle. Weird.

This shows a few of the things he does. If you see the part with the torches, he is holding onto them firmly not spinning them in his palm.

 

He does stuff that will have you yelling at the screen, YOU CAN’T DO THAT! Seriously.

He sometimes plays music by juggling. I hadn’t seen this bit before, it’s a different triangle

 

I used to have Moschen In Motion on VHS, but I can’t find it. I’d like to get it on DVD. It was very cool.

 

That appears to be most of it, but it’s more than 30 minutes. It’s very entertaining if you’re into that sort of thing.

I’ve tried not to use the word “mesmerizing”, but that’s the one that describes him. I kept finding a grin on my face as I watched him.

Listen, I’m not sure if someone’s messing with just me or with a lot of us, but it’s really getting harder and harder to take anything I see in the news seriously.

We’re close to war with Russia

The White House said on Monday that coalition forces fighting Islamic State militants in Syria retained the right to self-defense as Russia warned it viewed any planes flying in its area of operations as potential targets…

Russia, a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, said it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft. It stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.

The Russian Defence Ministry said it was also immediately scrapping a Syrian air safety agreement with Washington designed to avoid collisions and dangerous incidents.

and every time I flip to TV news I see something about Trump. Yesterday CNN went on for a little while about Flynn for fuck’s sake.

So what else are they ignoring as they focus on GETTING TRUMP!!!!!!!?

Unmasking Scandal: On Monday, Judicial Watch announced that it hit a dead end in its effort to dig out information about why White House advisor Susan Rice ordered an “unmasking” of Trump campaign officials in classified reports. In response to Judicial Watch’s April 4 request for materials related to these unmasking requests — to determine whether they were politically motivated — the National Security Council said it had sent all those records to Obama’s presidential library, where they can’t be released for five years…

Loretta Lynch Scandal: Despite blanket coverage of James Comey’s testimony about his firing by Trump, few noted the bombshell Comey dropped about Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, who, Comey said, pressured him to downplay the significance of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s reckless handling of classified emails on her private server. Comey said Lynch told him to call it a “matter,” not an investigation.

There’s more. You see, our fine media betters can’t have people getting the wrong idea. They need to understand that Trump is a fascist. If they ever find out how Obama and the rest of the Dem party acted and acts they might think the Democrats are the real fascists!?!?!?! We can’t have that!

 

 

Via Paco, we see something I really didn’t want to know.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University…

Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse…also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation, which was created by Francis Najafi … has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated.

 

Which deal McCain supposedly opposed. Jeffrey Immelt is on the board. You know, the ‘Republican’ head of GE who was such good friends with Obama.

The worst part? That I believe.

 

More of reality intruding on Reality!, it’s not funny but it was entirely predictable.

Let’s Burn Some Cat Fur!

First, Reality!

The term “no-go zone” famously caught on in some international media back in 2015 after it was used by a Swedish newspaper columnist to label these areas, but it has been strongly rejected by police and emergency services themselves.

The police definition describe these districts as socio-economically vulnerable areas with a generally high crime rate. In an especially vulnerable area there are also often parallel societal structures, religious extremism and police regularly have to adapt their methods to the volatile situation. (Ed. This usually means running away) Residents also often do not report crimes, either out of fear of retaliation or because they think it will not lead to anything.

Now reality.

Approached for comment, Stockholm area regional police chief Ulf Johansson said he was not “fully up to date” with details regarding the station’s closure, but told SVT “the premises in Kista left a lot to be desired when it comes to the work environment”.

In March, plans to replace Rinkeby’s police station, which closed in 2014, were put on hold because construction companies feared for the safety of their workforce in the majority migrant suburb, which is notorious for gang and gun crime.

They’re not No-Go Zones! They’re Free-Fire Zones! I just hope they’re sharia-compliant. Wouldn’t want to be racist.

 

Next up

 

Congress is pushing for gun-permit, national reciprocity for them, they should do it for all of us.

And what about their staffs? Why limit concealed carry only to congressmen and women?

Other Republican lawmakers are proposing nationwide reciprocity bills for all permit holders. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) is introducing such legislation this week. Reciprocity would make life simpler for permit holders who travel.

I expect it for them, not for us. They don’t really like us after all

 

This we’ve been watching happen for a long time. I’d say people who have California in the We’re Totally Boned pool still have hope, but those with Illinois have to be feeling hopeful.

With just 10 days to go until Illinois enters its third year without a budget, resulting in the state’s imminent downgrade to junk status and potentially culminating in a default for the state whose unpaid bills now surpass $15 billion, Democratic Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza issued a warning to Illinois Gov. Rauner and other elected officials on Tuesday, saying in a letter that her office has “very serious concerns” it may no longer be able to guarantee “timely and predictable payments” for some core services.

As we saw a few years ago when they gave out IOUs for lottery winners, they’re still having problem paying out on the most profitable ‘gambling’ deal there is.

Illinois is grappling with a full-fledged financial crisis and not even the lottery is safe – with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner warning the state is entering “banana republic” territory.

You know how bookies go broke? They get a big hit they weren’t expecting, the lottery doesn’t have that problem as the payout goes up with pay-in, not odds.

The other ways they go broke are if their protection money is really high or the boss’ son comes in and takes the receipts.

In Illinois, they have both of those problems.

 

Let’s laugh at some stuff that’s just too ridiculous to be true. Global Warmmongering!

Settled Science! seems a lot more unsettled than I would expect.

Indeed, only last week the Spectator published an article by one such Pause Denier – a scientist from the University of East Anglia (ground zero of the Climategate scandal), fondly known as the University of Easy Access, named Phil Williamson.

It is titled The Great Myth of the Global Warming Pause and it claims, somewhat imaginatively:

The Paris agreement will be the future, whereas the so-called global-warming hiatus is already history.

And let’s not forget that in the dog days of the Obama administration, alarmist scientists were so desperate to pooh pooh the “Pause” in the run up to the Paris climate talks that they concocted a junk science paper – now the subject of a federal investigation – which used dodgy data to try to airbrush the Pause out of history.

But wait! There’s Still More!!!!!!!!

A scientific consensus has emerged among top mainstream climate scientists that “skeptics” or “lukewarmers” were not long ago derided for suggesting — there was a nearly two-decade long “hiatus” in global warming that climate models failed to accurately predict or replicate.A new paper, led by climate scientist Benjamin Santer, adds to the ever-expanding volume of “hiatus” literature embracing popular arguments advanced by skeptics, and even uses satellite temperature datasets to show reduced atmospheric warming.

More importantly, the paper discusses the failure of climate models to predict or replicate the “slowdown” in early 21st century global temperatures, which was another oft-derided skeptic observation.

You have to love this

“In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming trends were generally smaller than trends estimated from a large multi-model ensemble,” reads the abstract of Santer’s paper, which was published Monday.

Can you study the climate and still notice reality? I didn’t think that was allowed.

What’s interesting, though, is Santer and his co-authors say their paper is “unlikely to reconcile the divergent schools of thought regarding the causes of differences between modeled and observed warming rates.”

Translation: This ain’t gonna change shit.

Not that I expected it to, I just like watching lefties notice reality before disappearing or learning not to go against the Consensus.

 

Let’s end on the freude we’re getting the most of these days.

Schaden!

When you look like that because your guy lost a House race perhaps you really need to get a fucking life. Jeez.

Speaking of which. Fakenewswers are sad!

Look at those “journalists” sad about some white guy in Georgia losing to a Wymynz. Why are they such racist misogynists? Haters.

 

Minitrue, after explaining how this was a referendum on Trump is evaluating what happened and, since they’re all reality based and shit, they know what’s to blame!
