Had a decent time in Vegas. Had fun at the events, did okay Friday night (Lost my money slowly) and badly Saturday night (lost my money quickly).

It was the first time I’ve stayed in a high end casino, I used to go the Flamingo.

I was not impressed. I spent time in the Palazzo part of the Venetian and the Wynn. The Wynn is huge and confusing. Saturday I was looking for the place with the wedding and nobody had heard of it, luckily I got close and found it on a small map in the area.

Everything was ridiculously overexpensive, the service was very good but I would rather do stuff for myself and blow a $couple hundred more at the tables. My buddy took all the stuff out of the honor bar and put some food he’d had delivered into it. He put it all back when we left. They have weight sensors so I got charged $350 for the whole, damn thing. I hopefully took care of it. We’ll see.

 

Let’s Tube!

 

So Russia is apparently having buyer’s remorse.

Russia has sent out a warning to the US-led coalition in Syria that it will view all aircraft as targets after a Syrian fighter was downed.

The coalition attacked the SU-22 after it launched a strike on US-backed rebels in Raqqa province.

Moscow said that it would no longer cooperate with the US in order to prevent air accidents.

Why, you’d think they would prefer a POTUS who would have continued Obama’s strategy of weakening America at home and abroad!?!?!?!

I will say I’d much rather get into a war with Russia in eastern Europe. Unlike the Middle East, we’d have allies we can trust there. Cuz Israel has to sit out any war not involving them being invaded. Because of tolerance.

 

There’s something fishy about the USS Fitzgerald.

Something is fishy about USS Fitzgerald story we are getting from the media

 

I’d quibble that we’re getting a fishy story from the media, we’re not getting anything from the media. I watched bunch of coverage yesterday and all we got was about how great the crew did, how the captain was lucky to be alive and the ship will take a long time to get fixed.

What was fishy was what we aren’t being told. Which is anything.

Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder…

If there is any substance to this – that the ACX Crystal disabled protective systems and rammed the Fitzgerald at high speed aimed at crtical facilities (evident from the damage)

Exactly. RTWT, it’s very good paranoia. The type that makes sense and is backed up by evidence, history and common sense. That’s a wonder!

Via Common Sense and Wond….That must be why that blog is named that! Mystery solved!

 

The We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party update!

I am amazed by the conspiracy of silence, on the right and the left, about former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s bungling of the anthrax case. “In his years as FBI director and as a Justice Department official, Mueller gained a reputation for honesty, integrity, and being a ‘straight-shooter,’” writes Fred Barnes at The Weekly Standard…

The trap has been set by those conservatives in the media, echoing their liberal colleagues, who wanted to pretend that Mueller is overflowing with honor and integrity. By showering him with praise, they have joined hands with the liberal media in setting the stage for Trump’s impeachment and forced resignation from office.

They have to Get Trump. Their phoney baloney jobs are at stake!

 

Plan B Update!

MSNBC HOST JOY REID SUGGESTS REP. STEVE SCALISE DESERVED TO BE SHOT DUE TO CONSERVATIVE RECORD.

And in case you missed it Friday night, Scott Pelley of CBS: It’s time to ask whether [Wednesday’s] attack was foreseeable, predictable, self-inflicted.

Or is assassination now Plan A?

 

Our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters have been pretty happy. They finally have a Backlash Against The Muslims they can frown about.

Theresa May has vowed that “hatred and evil” of the kind seen in the terror attack on a north London mosque that left one man dead and 10 injured will never succeed…

Speaking of “hatred and evil”, why did that guy choose Finsbury Mosque? Was he going in alphabetical order but he lost “A-E” of the phonebook?

Finsbury Mosque alums include

Abu Hamza, recruiter for al Quaeda.

And more! Like Shoebomber Richard Reid!

And even More! Including our old friend, Zacarias Moussaoui

It’s hard to find info on other alums because there are a bunch of articles about how It’s Changed To A Model Of Moderate Islam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t believe those articles.

The reason that guy rammed his van into that particular crowd is because of articles that downplay ‘extremism’ (read: terrorists)while watching protests with signs like, “Behead those who insult Islam” and “Kill Kuffir!” while seeing rape-rings with hundreds of girls being hidden by authorities all while someone not of the protected class saying, “You know, we should slow down Muslim immigration” is a hate-crime.

I like this bit.

as police promised to provide extra patrols during Ramadan.

You mean extra patrols in addition to the ones watching for Muslim terrorists, right? Or is that hate-speech to ask?

They’ve been repressing the Backlash Against The Muslims and basically telling their serfs to suck it up and deal that I have to wonder if we’re getting ready to see a good old European bloodbath. Except for Kosovo it’s been pretty quiet in EUnuchstan for 70 years. That’s a long time for Europe.

Doing the search for “finsbury mosque terrorists” made me wonder if the paranoia about google messing with searches is true. Almost all the articles you see in the searches are about how great a place it is. Journolist is on the job and/or google is messing with searches.

Jeez, would Google risk a company worth $billions over their leftist religion? While I applaud the idiocy, why the hell don’t they just tithe?

 

Once again, Veeshir Argues With Headlines!

Seattle gun tax failure? Firearm sales plummet, violence spikes after law passes

When the City of Seattle passed a tax on all sales of guns and ammunition, the measure was hailed as a way to defray the rising costs of gun violence.

But since the tax took effect, those costs have only risen as gun violence in the city has surged. And the tax has apparently brought in much less than city leaders projected it would

What you have to understand is the reason given for gun-grabbing is never the real reason so I’m gonna say it was a success.

Why?

What did the law do?

It puts a $25 tax on every firearm sold in the city and up to 5 cents per round of ammunition.

Let’s see if there’s a clue as to what the real reason might have been!

But Mike Coombs, owner of Outdoor Emporium, the last large gun dealer left in Seattle,

…said storewide, sales are down 20 percent while gun sales have plummeted 60 percent.

“I’ve had to lay off employees because of this,” Coombs said. “It’s hurting us, it’s hurting our employees.”

Employees at the Big 5 sporting goods stores in Seattle also report anemic gun sales…

Surprise! So they’re getting icky gun dealers out of their town while jerking around legal owners. That was the purpose of the bill so…Success!

 

That article has my favorite “but”, the clueless one. You know the type, ‘Jails are full but crime is down?!?’ “but”.

…Seattle also report anemic gun sales. But there’s evidence Seattleites are just going outside the city to buy their guns…

So you’re saying people will drive a few miles to save a few dollars? No!

…Coombs also owns a gun shop in the nearby city of Fife. Sales there are described as robust.

Another gun dealer simply left Seattle and moved his shop, Precise Shooter, to nearby Lynnwood. Sergey Solyanik said business has never been better. He said the gun tax has probably worked out to be a net negative for Seattle when factoring lost sales tax revenue.

Jeez, they really just don’t they get the concept of tithing. You don’t need to bankrupt yourself along with heretics.

 

Okay, this made me laugh.

Megyn Kelly’s controversial interview with Alex Jones on NBC ended up a distant third in the network ratings race during its first half hour on Sunday night…

Among the key 18 to 49-year-old demographic that advertisers covet most, a re-run of ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos” beat Kelly and “60 Minutes” by almost 40 percent.

Kelly’s program has been declining week-over-week from a rating perspective since launching three weeks ago with an episode featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin that registered an average of 6.2 million viewers.

Someone get Megyn an “NBC spent a month ginning up CONTROVERSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt” low-cut, tight T-shirt. She’ll need it for her next job.

 

VDH asks, Can A Divided America Survive?

 

Not well, but that’s what we’ve been doing for a long time. It’s just becoming far too obvious to ignore that we’re so very divided and one side has most of the political and media power.

I will say that the people who support the side with the political and media power are very angry they were thwarted and keep losing elections. As we’ve been seeing, they’re aren’t taking it quietly.

An illustration

They used the word, “bourgeoisie” non-ironically. I’m finding it hard to express how hilarious I find that. I use it all the time. When someone wants me to do something I don’t want to do I say, “Doing that is so bourgeois!”

Bourgeoisie. Are we really refighting communism?

 

The heartening part is that, while they’re getting all butthurt and violent, they’re mostly not very scary. I’m not saying I want him to have done better, but that guy who was firing at Republicans was a crappy shot. If it had been a gun nut going after Congresscritters the results would have been far different.

Nother illustration

So can a Divided America survive? I’d say we need to worry about surviving civil war our fine lefist betters are trying to start.

 

New strategy in Afghanistan!

Pentagon officials are hopeful new equipment and training will better prepare local militia groups, otherwise known as the “Taliban,” in sustaining the fight against a corrupt regime while simultaneously taking the fight to ISIS in Afghanistan, sources confirmed today.

“Simply put, a new plan is needed to create a sustainable and capable force that can bring security back to Afghanistan, and root out groups like ISIS,” said Gen. John Nicholson, the top American commander in Afghanistan. “And we think we finally found a plan that will work.”

 

I’m not sure if I’m happy it’s satire.

I’m all fer shaking up that bucket of scorpions by giving them all small arms, even up to some mortars. Nothing big, just some smaller stuff.

Then make every 100th shell faulty so it blows up the tube. Along with any jihadis within about 10–30 yards. That would be funny.

The funniest part, for me at least, is that if I had posted this a couple years ago and said it was the Wash Post you would have believed me.  Hell, I’m surprised Obama didn’t do it.

I wouldn’t be too surprised if Trump got our folks out and did that. After advertising how there’s a shrine 70 miles outside Kabul where Mohamed once washed his hair. Let’s get ISIS and Iran fighting Pakistan and the Taliban in Afghanistan over some pile of rocks with a pool.

 

Now this is a good question

I’d have to say it depends on where I was. In AZ it would depend on the weather, in NY I’d probably get a hate-crime charge and sued if I waited even long enough to take the vid.

Questioning his stallionhood!

 

 

I’ve stopped reading the NY Post, but I think I’ve found a replacement!

NASA Wants To Probe Uranus In Search Of Gas

I got nothing to add. It’s a good article actually, you should read it if you’re into space stuff. Or Uranus. Or gas.
