There are some funny things going on as people keep clinging to willful ignorances even as reality attempts to reassert itself.

Never Trumpers at the Wash Examiner are perplexed by what should be obvious to one and all.

What in the world is Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinking?

What is she thinking? She’s thinking that the Dept of “Justice” will continue providing cover for the felonious behavior of Democrats as they’ve been doing for a long time now.

They discuss all the things minitrue and the Dems are trying to ignore about how bad a security breach Dem operatives presided over.

The hypocrisy of Democrats is stunning.

Their unwillingness to help law enforcement is even more so.

Ahhh, but the unwillingness of ‘law enforcement’ to ignore Dem felonyizing is anything but stunning, it’s so commonplace as to be banal.

The former DNC chairwoman’s behavior is not only disturbing, it is unbecoming of a member of Congress who was entrusted with great responsibilities. By knowingly permitting the IT provider to remain employed and place our national security at risk, Wasserman Schultz’s actions border on criminally negligent.

For that, the punishment against her must be swift.

So what’s their preferred “punishment”?

Fortunately, Congress has the process of censure at their disposal. Censure is a formal and public reprimand of a member “whose actions run counter to the group’s acceptable standards for individual behavior.” Wasserman Schultz’s actions certainly fit that description.

So…. throwing fish at us to get us to slap our fins together, arf and honk our squeezy bulbs.

Recall Charlie Rangel was “censured” for his felonies, how’d that work out?

Censure is a lot more relaxing than you’d think.

 

Willful Ignorance!

A story in Newsweek says the bulk of Chinese trade with North Korea involves just ten Chinese companies. The working assumption is that those ten companies are so “connected” and powerful that even the Chinese government can’t influence them, or might not want to try.

Fair enough. That makes the government of China common observers in this drama. Embarrassing for them.

It’s a commie country, that means that “connected” companies are tools of the State. The murderous commie dictators of China are not “embarrassed”, they’re laughing their asses off at stupid westerners who seem to think that this is anything but what the murderous commie dictators want to do.

Can we go to war with 10 companies? Idiocy. Pure and simple. That’s like being confused that even though the PLO talks peace they keep sending their children at Israelis strapped with remote-detonated ‘suicide’ belts.

 

Watch Trey Gowdy. Explode At The GOP For Refusing To Repeal Obamacare After 7 Years Of Promises!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

GOP voters device

Arf Arf Arf!

A reminder

He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.”

He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.”

Trey Gowdy is the cheerleader for… you guessed it!

Fuck em. I ain’t arfing until I see some prominent Dems in jail. Not fucking ‘censured’.

 

An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

This is how President Trump makes “The House of Cards” collapse. This is how President Trump ends Obamacare once and for all.

Executive Order #1: President Trump should issue an immediate Executive Order forcing every member of Congress to use the same healthcare plan as the rest of us. Let Senator McCain come off his high horse and live under the rules of Obamacare. Make every member of Congress live by same rules as the rest of us…

Except I’d include a provision that McCain has to go to the VA in Phoenix for his healthcare.

President Trump should issue an immediate Executive Order demanding disclosure of all financial interests and ownership in healthcare related companies or stock by every member of Congress- including all family members and offshore accounts. Failure to disclose will result in a long prison term.

Bwahahahhahahahhahahhahahhahahhaa. Beautiful, naive as the Dept. of “Justice” would be uninterested, but that’s Failure Theater I could get behind. It would further pull back the curtain.

The effect would be awesome. We’d see the politically connected suddenly be treated like the lumpen proletariat so they’d have to do something real instead of just symbolic. We’d see all our betters freak out and explain why Trump is a doody-head for making them live as they force us to and it would cement Trump’s popularity with the people who should matter, voters, but who don’t.

We’d also see the hilarity of minitrue freaking as they explain to Teh Peepul why Obamacare is so good for us and so bad for Important People!.

I do disagree with this.

P.S. Throw in a third plank. Term Limits. Limit each member of Congress to two terms. One term in office and one term in prison.

That should be in the Constitution. I blame James Madison for that.

 

Mike Huckabee, Mike fucking Huckabee, is the voice of reason!

 

One of the biggest reasons they gave for the 17th amendment was that many states were not appointing senators in a timely basis.

Be still my beating heart! How awesome would it be if say…Arizona had a problem with sending that fuckhead McCain and Mini-McCain, Jeff Flake, to the Senate.

 

While I agree with the headline, the body is a textbook example of attempting to insert willful ignorance into the mainstream.

Headline

El Paso Times Blames U.S. Government For Illegal Alien Deaths

Status: True! If we had some border and lack of governmental sanction of illegal immigration shit like that would happen far less often.

Body of the article.

Tens of thousands of migrants head to the United States in search of work each year, with many employers willing to hire them at a time of 4 percent unemployment in this country. But lack of political will has prevented the United States from creating any viable legal path to connect migrants and employers, increasing the power of the human smugglers in Mexico and Central America.

Status: False! You lying sacks of willful ignorance!

We have laws, we’re not enforcing them. As for the “4 percent unemployment”, as we’ve seen for a long time, that includes nearly 100 million people who have given up on getting a job.

But sure, let’s import a bunch of wogs to work cheap! Right minitrue? Them lawns ain’t gonna landscape themselves!

 

For those who haven’t been to the US side of Niagara Falls, there’s a reason people go to the Canadian side for vacation.

Niagara Falls State Park was packed with visitors around 4 p.m. Saturday when the foul-smelling, black discharge came billowing out into the Niagara River within sight of the base of the American Falls, alarming city businesses and tourists as it engulfed the shoreline from the Rainbow Bridge to the Maid of the Mist boat dock…

It turns out the discharge came from the Niagara Falls Waste Water Treatment Plant. The plant had the proper sewer discharge paperwork to release the volume of sewage and sediment that spewed into the river Saturday, according to the Niagara Falls Water Board.

Love Canal is in the town of Niagara Falls, all around the area are fenced off with warning signs

When I was 19 I hung out at Niagara University a lot, I grabbed a bunch of signs that said, “Warning! Area Of Chemical Contamination! Authorized Personnel Only!” I ran through some ‘wetlands’ to get them. Afterward, my Pumas were so white they were blue-tinged and my feet and socks were scoured clean.

NYS is uber corrupt and uber slimy, so as we see they okayed dumping sewage into the river. Because the power generation people are ‘Politically Powerful!’, or have deep pockets able to bribe slimy NY pols. Whichever formula you prefer, NYers are fucked.

 

This is cool, Roman Roads of Britain.

Suitable for framing. Guy’s selling posters if you’re interested.

 

It looks almost like DC’s Metro Map. I bet those roads blew up nearly as much as the DC Metro stations do so the comparison is apt. Apt! I say!

No matter how much I think I accept the ridiculousness of today, it just keeps smacking me in the face and I can’t accept it all over again.

ABOVE THE POST, OBSERVATIONAL, UPDATE I MEANT TO INCLUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t have cable so I watch a lot of Buzzer, a gameshow channel. Yesterday on Family Feud with Richard Dawson the question was about “Most admired athletes”

One of the answers was Bruce Jenner.

Made me laugh it did.

 

Now back to our post! Nearly in its ridiculous entirety!

I’d like to complain about something, why didn’t anybody tell me about CNN politics twitter feed? It’s the height of ridiculousness and even funnier than Iowahawks twitter feed.

Here they are going with their standard, A Republican POTUS is fighting America’s enemies, playlist.

Get it? Fighting them only makes them stronger!

Read the replies, they’re peppered with, “Fake news!” and “You really need to stop being so stupid!”

This one is a fine example of today’s ‘journalism’, they pretend that Senators’ rely on Obamacare for anything but graft and power over our lives.

Why isn’t McCain going to a VA hospital? He’s a veteran so should be all in on gov’t run healthcare. But he’s important, his life is important, so fuck us. That’s why.

 

More McCain being all mavericky!

Fuckhead. See, back then he had to get us to slap our fins and honk our squeezy bulbs, now he’s serving his real constituency, the DC political class, so he has to Get Trump!. He keeps fucking AZ and we keep electing the fuckhead. Fuck.

 

The Real Collusion!

Yup.

Daniel Greenfield at Doug Ross’ site has a post on this collusion and subversion of the First Amendment by the people who scream about that whenever they get caught lying and fakenewsing.

Once upon a time there was a liberal media. Like most left-leaning institutions it worked hard to prove its progressive premises. Democrats were good and Republicans bad. The police and the military were bad. Social welfare spending and diplomacy were good. Israel was bad and the PLO was good.

This was the thing we used to nostalgically call media bias.

We aren’t dealing with a liberal media anymore, but an illiberal media…

The illiberal media isn’t interested in winning an argument, but in silencing the opposition. It doesn’t just want to shout louder than you. It wants to use its institutional power to shut you up.

Yup, and if they have to ignore stories that hurt Dems, like all the collusion, hacking and felonyizing of the DNC, while fakenewsing and lying using anonymous sources  to Get Trump! subverting our democracy is the price they’re willing to make us pay!

Whenever I see a story about newsrooms cutting staff I laugh. Fuck them. They abused their position, if they want to be house organs for putative dictators they can move to Russia, Cuba or Venezuela. They’re already lying for China so moving there would be redundant.

 

Speaking of lying for the DNC, watch as they ignore more collusion to subvert our democratic, and Democrat, institutions!

The attorneys for 2016 supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who are suing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and the Democratic National Committee for fraud say they are “perplexed” as to why the case has gotten so little coverage in the media.

“This seems like an important case, as important as you can get,” attorney Cullin O’Brien told LifeZette on Tuesday.

See Cullin, can I call you Cullin?, that’s not helpful for Getting Trump!, that’s pointing out Dem perfidy so not news.

I wonder if Hillary will discuss that collusion in her auto-hagiography?

 

Trump’s not taking my advice in Syria, he’s cutting off supplies of small arm for jihadis, but what with the GOP fucking him and us maybe he’s going to undo all the illegal and extralegal bullshit Obama had to do to keep Obamacare creaking along.

President Trump on Saturday threatened to end key payments to insurance companies made under Obamacare if a repeal and replace bill is not passed.

“After seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!” the president wrote in a tweet.

“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” he added.

Add in a rider that McCain has to go to the VA in Phoenix and at least something would be right in the world.

If he reversed Obama’s Obamacare waivers by giving waivers to people who didn’t have them and taking them away from politically powerful assholes who are busy Getting Trump would be all about teh awesome as CNN explains how they were fine when Obama was illegally telling people they could break the law but Trump doing the same thing is the End Of The Republic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which leads us to a good question whose time is still coming.

As I wrote in the Last Days Of Obama,

Should the Republican Party Be Saved if Hillary! Wins?…

An even better question would be, “Can the GOP be saved if Trump wins?” as we spend the next 4 years with them calling their base a bunch of assholes instead of trying to figure out why the people who used to vote for them and send them money are telling them to fuck off.

I’m still not sure, the GOP is doing everything they can to piss on and piss off their voters so the jury is still out. Forming a new party would be tough but if the GOP continues to be unresponsive and rudely dismissive of its voters it might be necessary.  2018 and 2020 are going to be interesting.

 

This is what happens when a gov’t decides its voters are a bunch of assholes who need to shut up.

There is no conceivable way a majority or even a plurality of Venezuelan people would vote in favor of chaining themselves into the slavery and misery of a Cuba-style tyrannical dictatorship. So the only only option available left for Cuba’s puppet dictatorship in Venezuela is to force it through by using the only tactics they know: Violent repression and murder.

Hillary was their best chance for that last part, her enemies have a bad habit of committing suicide after all.

They’d love to do that here, that’s why they keep trying to take our guns. And that’s why we have them. Just ask Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and George Washington.

Their problem is that most of the people with guns are not onboard with the gov’t violently taking away our rights. That’s why the last three admins were busily arming federal agencies with no law enforcement powers.

 

Let’s look at the mores a key Dem constituent.

The evil inflicted largely on your dime by the abortion mill Planned Parenthood doesn’t stop at killing unwanted babies or even at selling their body parts. There is much more to the agenda it advances — for example, instilling twisted liberal sexual mores in 3-year-olds:

In new guidelines issued on the official Planned Parenthood website, the federally subsidized corporation explains how parents should talk to their pre-schoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, and transgenderism, even offering tips on how to tell if your toddler “is transgender or gender nonconforming.”

Saying your toddler is “transgender” should be grounds for losing your children and being shunned from polite society.

Toddlers are also to be encouraged to masturbate.

Seriously, they’re dangerously insane. That’s a crime, pure and simple.

 

The Arabian peninsula is choosing sides.

Four Arabic countries said they are ready for a dialogue with Qatar if it shows a willingness to fight terrorism.

Foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain met today (July 30) in the Bahraini capital Manama to discuss the crisis in relations with Qatar.

The Saudi-led bloc cut ties with Qatar on June 5 accusing the country of supporting terrorism and extremism, which Doha denies.

Translation: Be for terrorism by sunnis and against terrorism by shiites. That’s why the Middle East is such a shithole of repression and death, Our Terrorism is Good! Their Terrorism is Bad!

The Irish learned that lesson, I have a feeling that Muslims are going to have to learn it with mushroom clouds.

 

Australia committed a Hate Crime!

Four men have been taken into custody and are assisting police with their inquiries, according to a joint AFP and NSW Police statement.

The Seven Network reports 40 riot squad officers stormed a Surry Hills terrace before the explosives team found a suspicious device.

Fairfax Media reports the raids were in relation to a terrorist cell “and a bomb plot involving aircraft”…

Police have confirmed the raids relate to an alleged plot to bring down an aircraft using a “device” …

They seem to not understand that all cultures are equal. Blowing up planes is just part of their culture and we should not be so hateful!

Tolerant lefties are all onboard for certain types to be stopped.

Australia doesn’t have a Trump so they have to get people like Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt.

Staying with Tim Blair highlighting hilarity/despicability, Remember, Green Science is neither but it is viciously murderous in Africa!

“Behind every clean electric car there is cobalt,” reports the FT’s David Pilling. “And behind cobalt is the Democratic Republic of Congo.” And when the Congo is involved, so is terrible corruption and brutality:…

Did I mention the Democratic Republic of Congo? Some 60 per cent of the world’s cobalt comes from this central African country,

Methinks tolerant Hollywood lefties will not be making a movie called “Blood Batteries” anytime soon.

Nothing good happens in Congo. They’re still eating people for cripe’s sake.

Poor Africa, always fucked by tolerant lefties.

According to the company’s proposal to join a United Nations clean-air program, the settlers living in this area left in a “peaceful” and “voluntary” manner…

“I heard people being beaten, so I ran outside,” said Emmanuel Cyicyima, 33. “The houses were being burnt down.”

Other villagers described gun-toting soldiers and an 8-year-old child burning to death when his home was set ablaze by security officers…

According to a report released by the aid group Oxfam on Wednesday, the Ugandan government and a British forestry company forcibly expelled more than 20,000 people from their homes here in recent years, emblematic of a global scramble for arable land.

But colonialism! Haiku guy notes some murderous hilarity.

The kicker, of course, is that they are not even going to use this land for any useful purpose. They plan to grow useless Eucalyptus trees as part of a carbon-trading scam. These trees provide no food or lumber. All they do is grow. And blow up, when there is a forest fire.

So poor Ugandans are going to starve so Algore can buy a carbon credit to offset the emissions from his next flight on a private jet or if he decides to build another wing on his house. Nice…

Green Science! Destroying lives and standard of living while not saving Gaia but giving leftists control over $trillions and our lives for decades!

 

In Eastern Europe War News, totally not Russian military!

Russia is prudently escalating the situation in Donbas, while trying to remain publicly beyond the conflict. Volodymyr Groysman spoke about the country’s overhaul by his government. Arseniy Yatsenyuk called for a balance in power, reminding of his own political ambitions. Yuriy Lutsenko publicly criticized his subordinates in Dnipro. Against the backdrop of the parliamentary holidays, several parties tried to show off their activity.

 

I seriously can’t decide if I want to get into a war with Russia in the Middle East or in eastern Europe.

On the one hand, in the Middle East we have only one true ally, Israel, with one sorta ally, Jordan, so fighting there would be tough as we would have to fight everybody except the Kurds while in the eastern Europe we’d have former SSRs on our side.

But in the Middle East Russia would have to deal with ‘allies’ who would turn on them at the drop of a kefiya so they’d be embroiled with fighting their ‘allies’ almost as much as they’d have to fight us.

Add in nuclear war between Iran and Pakistan-supplied Saudi Arabia and Russia would be almost as fucked as we would be.

I have to wonder if Mattis could make it look as though were going to get involved and then turn around and point and laugh as Russia fights all the people they just got done arming. Iran is nobody’s puppet, Tsar Putin I is all about installing tsarlings. While Assad in Syria is a puppet-dictator, the mad mullahs are a lot of things, but tsarlings they ain’t. They’re used to installing shahs to be under the Shahinshah. That would lead to a different, three-sided war between Iran, Turkey and Russia.

Could be interesting. Although Israel and Jordan might have different words to describe it.

 

Where does the Constitution give the gov’t the power to get involved with these decisions by private enterprise?

If you think the government should do something about the cramped legroom on airplanes, you’ve got a friend in a federal court.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., on Friday ordered aviation regulators to consider setting minimum standards for the space airlines give passengers.

Trick question, the US gov’t and the Constitution are not related! If someone says, “There oughtta be a law!” the gov’t is happy to pass said unConstitutional law!

Obamacare put paid to any pretensions and pretendings anybody but minitrue had on that. They’re all about pretensions and pretending.

 

The only thing that would make this story better for me would be if they had asked him to autograph the stolen merchandise.

Hip-hop artist Zumbi of rap group Zion I and a film crew were robbed at gunpoint while shooting a music video in West Oakland on Monday, July 10. No one was injured, but the thieves made off with a $90,000 camera,

Hoist on your own petard is one of the leading causes of schadenboner so be warned.

 

Apparently lefties are unhappy that engineers are generally either conservative or apolitical.

Engineers baffled by ‘microaggression’ workshop at conference

A recent academic conference on advanced manufacturing techniques was interrupted for an hour-long workshop on microaggressions.

Louisiana State University hosted its second annual Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials (CIMM) RII Symposium on July 24, but some attendees who showed up expecting to learn about advances in engineering were surprised to find themselves instead “dealing with snowflakes and trigger warnings.”…

The post included a screenshot of the Symposium’s agenda confirming that a “workshop/panel discussion” on “implicit bias, stereotypes, microinsults, microaggressions, [and] Title IX” took place immediately before the conference broke for lunch.

“At one point they had us write a microaggression that we gave or someone gave us,” the post continued, providing several pictures of a bulletin board covered with the resulting sticky notes.

They want to make sure engineers support Trump. Not sure why but there it is.

Iowahawk has a solution!

Hell, I’d have them try to add fractions or try to figure out the third side of a right-triangle given two sides and all three angles. That would be hilarious enough. Asking them to solve diff-eqs wouldn’t be very funny to watch, it would be like trying to get a member of Congress to tell us which part of our lives they can’t regulate. i.e. Totally beyond their intellect.

 

I haven’t seen Dunkirk, but apparently angry lefties are even more wrong about that movie than even I thought! This guy helpfully reviewed the movie in a diversity lens.

Yesterday, I reviewed the new movie, Dunkirk.  Reader mrgarabaldi pointed out that there has been a kerfuffle due to the relative lack of non-white and/or female characters.  Well, I’ve done a bit of digging, and found out that Mr. Nolan had to cut out a lot of content to make the movie fit into his allotted length…

If you’re looking for African-American characters, have no fear.  Nolan used black actors for all of the German aircrews.  The bomber crews, of course, were female.
The u-boat captain, whose deleted scenes run to almost three hours, is a woman of south Asian and Filipino heritage.  You’ll know her by the black swastika embedded in her ruby nose ring.

RTW, short,T, it really explains things!

 

I don’t like Trump very much but he’s surely exposed a lot that our betters would prefer be hidden.

I will say that I can’t believe I’ve been defending him.

As sockless joe wrote in suggesting we vote for him:

Donald Trump is a despicable human being…

I am compelled to vote for the candidate with the greatest chance of stopping this atrocity, Donald Trump.

May God have mercy on all our souls.

Now that’s an endorsement.

 

Who’s avoiding whom?

Embattled Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has avoided facing any media since her law enforcement arrested her former IT staffer Imran Awan Tuesday on bank fraud charges.

“Embattled”? Buh? Shouldn’t that read, “Ignored” or “Uninteresting“?

In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud.

She should be embattled, but instead she’s apparently uninvolved in some bank fraud by some dudes. Just ask The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc.

 

Emboldened gadfly, Rand Paul, has concerns.

“The Kentucky lawmaker added that eavesdropping and subsequent leaking to the press needs to be punished, regardless of politics. He said millions of Americans are changing their behavior because of the intelligence community’s surveillance program, and ‘that’s wrong.’”

Only on the right. Lefties are utterly unconcerned about violence, calls for violence and barratry. Not much different from how it’s been, but now normal people are unable to ignore it.

And they’re not.

A local community is making a bold move after a roadside memorial honoring veterans was taken down in Preston.

King County road crews took down a “years-old display” of American and POW flags in the town of Preston after someone complained about it.

Crews also say they took down the original flags because they didn’t have permission to be there.

But on Thursday night angry neighbors hung up new flags.

“People were really, really upset about this,” said one local resident.

This is why we have Trump and how you get more Trump.

Via Weasel Zippers.

 

Are Trump and Sessions actually playing 9-dimensional checkers?

He hasn’t begun the investigation into leaks, which is a big deal and he’s recused himself from Russia. So today Sessions announces… Well, it’s said that he’s gonna announce a new investigation into all of the illegal, felonious leaking that is taking place. Sessions may be… I’ll tell you what this means. He may be about to open investigations into Democrats. Stick with me on this. Hillary Clinton, Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz — and, believe me, is there ever fertile ground to investigate Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and the DNC and her IT staffer, Imran Awan of Virginia…

. But not from the angle that the Democrats are interested in. If this is announced, if Sessions announces this — when he does — it will follow a week minimum, maybe two weeks, of all of these Democrats defending the honor of Jeff Sessions.

Praising his integrity, talking about what a raw deal he’s been getting from Trump. But the point is, go back to the campaign, fast-forward to the transition and Sessions’ nomination to be attorney general, the confirmation hearings. “What a pig! What a racist! What an absolute joke! What a danger! This guy… Beauregard? Ha! We know what that means. The guy may as well own a plantation. He probably still has secret slaves. Beauregard? Who names their kid Beauregard?” They’re out there trying to impugn Sessions.

Now they’ve been defending him and setting him up as one of most integrity filled people of all, ’

It’s an interesting supposition, call it the Comey Gambit.  I will say that I’ve become sure that Trump has a “Piss off the lefties, the media and the Uniparty” Coordinator so this is plausible.

 

Speaking of coordinators, definitional problems abound!

That’s a Diversity Coordinator coordinating exclusion. Hilarious. You know, cuz I don’t go to that school.

 

via Wirecutter, Whenever someone yells “Allahu Akbar” during an attack ‘officials’ are utterly confused as to their motives.

Do EUnuchs understand how ridiculous they look?

A man wielding a large kitchen knife killed one and wounded four others after storming into a supermarket in the German city of Hamburg.
The attacker is reported to have screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ before running into the Edeka shop where he stabbed one person and slashed at four others while trying to flee.
He was pursued by passers-by who wrestled him to the ground and called the police, who later arrested him.
One officer said there was ‘no valid information on the motive of the attacker‘ who has yet to be identified.

All signs point to “Not a fucking clue”. My magic 8-ball is kinda foul mouthed.

Wirecutter asks, in relation to the above link, “Will Germany ever open her eyes?”

He could also ask that about Akbar Britain.

This highlights the other problem with EUnuchstan in that accurately describing anything about any favored group is a hate-crime so it’s very hard to figure out what the hell is going on.

As violent riots erupted last night, dramatic video showed more than a dozen officers retreating from protesters who launched objects at them.

They were also seen clinging to the front of a truck which ploughed through bins that had been set up as a barricade.

The violence has drawn parallels with the London riots in 2011, which were sparked by the police shooting of 29-year-old Mark Duggan in Tottenham.

As darkness fell, youths were seen setting fire to mattresses in the middle of the road and pelting police vans with objects.

Which set of “youths” is this? Asian? (which in Akbar Britain is “Pakistani”, not ‘oriental’ the way it is in America), North African?

The guy who was killed that is the supposed spark is being called, “black”, so I’m unsure.

We see that Brit pols are all in on cultural suicide.

‘Understandable anger’: Local MP Diane Abbott joins protesters as she defends rioters but calls for calm amid fears of new London riots after police were last night attacked in Hackney over death of man as he was arrested

Diane Abbott has defended the ‘understandable anger and upset’ of a furious mob of rioters who lit bonfires and hurled petrol bombs at officers in Dalston, east London , last night.

That should read, “Diane Abbot has defended the indefensible”, but we’re in the Now, so that’s not what they wrote.

 

I gotta say I am not so sure why they’re doing this.

China has been bolstering defenses along its 880-mile frontier with North Korea and realigning forces in surrounding regions to prepare for a potential crisis across their border, including the possibility of a U.S. military strike…

China’s military has also merged, moved and modernized other units in border regions and released details of recent drills there with special forces, airborne troops and other units that experts say could be sent into North Korea in a crisis. They include a live-fire drill in June by helicopter gunships and one in July by an armored infantry unit recently transferred from eastern China and equipped with new weaponry.

 

I’d say they were there to help their ‘plausible deniability’ province, I know I’m in the minority on that. We’ll see.

 

The Panama Papers scandal has been mostly ignored in this country, but it’s been huge in other places, like Pakistan where their Supreme Court just kicked out the Prime Minister saying

Nawaz Sharif failed to declare his un-withdrawn salary of AED 10,000 dirhams from Capital FZE in his 2013 nomination papers. That was the only ground taken by the Supreme Court for disqualifying an elected prime minister…

So we are back to the undeclared dirhams (some three hundred thousand rupees, give or take). What the judges have said is this: you were owed ten thousand dirhams. The fact you did not collect them is irrelevant. They were “a receivable” and “receivables” are assets

There was a bunch of other stuff going on that they wanted to get him for but that’s all they could get him on.

Nobody tell Roberts about that precedent or we’re fucked.

 

NYC is busy spending tax money on shit they’re not supposed to be doing, like kicking homeless people out of the subway when the mayor goes by, so they can’t actually keep the subways running, so they’re calling on Patriots To Help. De Blasio called on the state to fix the problem, the state is calling on Teh Peepul to do it.

Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has asked the private sector to help foot the bill to fix the subway in New York City. From New York Daily News:

“We have to change our attitude. This is our MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority], right? This is our transit system,” Cuomo told members of the Association for a Better New York as he stood beneath a jumbo screen that flashed the words “We must change our attitude: OUR MTA.”

“There has to be an air of civic engagement and participation, investment in this system.”

I have to admit, I’m fer it. I hope they make it mandatory. NYers keep electing these feckless assholes, let them deal with the consequences.

 

What’s the most awesome thing that could happen to a 10-year-old boy?

The Natural History Museum has admitted one of its dinosaurs was incorrectly labelled after a 10-year-old boy spotted the error.

Awesome.

Which leads to this excellent question

Since nobody answered it, does anybody here have any idea?

As we all know, our fine media betters are no longer in the information business, they’re in the disinformation, misinformation and affirmation business.

Let’s look at the ‘scandal’ where some Pakistani dudes were running rampant through Congress’ computer systems that’s apparently not happening

A Top Lawyer! is involved.

WELL, YES, THE FBI’S GENERAL COUNSEL IS A “TOP FBI LAWYER:” A top FBI lawyer is under an investigation for allegedly leaking classified information.

Just some lawyer dude.

 

The Dept of “Justice” is ON THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The U.S. Attorney Overseeing Imran Awan’s Investigation Is …

Steve Wasserman, the brother of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who hired Imran.

Boy do I feel like an idiot, I figured After Trump the DO”J” would stop spitting in my face.

 

You can tell this is all amateur journalism.

Imran Awan and his family made quite a bit of money off tax payers thanks to Democrats who kept paying him on your dime. Here is the total dollar for dollar breakdown from 2009-2016 for each of the Democrat House members who had #AwanBrothers on payroll.

No anonymous sources saying things that Get Trump!!!!, no innuendo and lies, just named sources and actual facts.

Jeez, it’s like they haven’t read the AP styleguide!

 

Remember, Trump colluded wi…no, TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TO HACK THE ELECTION!!!!!!!

BROWDER: And in the Spring and Summer of 2016 they were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official.

SEN. GRAHAM: Okay. So, these are the people that were trying to undermine Donald Trump by showing the nefarious ties to Russia. Is that what you’re saying?

BROWDER: Well, what I’m saying with 100% certainty is that they were working to undermine the Magnitsky act and the timing of that.

Yeah, we caught that shit. You can see from Graham’s question how the GOP is going to handle this, “They were trying to inform us of Trump’s ties to Putin!!!!.” We also know the Dept of “Justice” isn’t going to do shit. They’re too busy Getting Trump!!!!

 

Speaking of which, not all that important, I had just been wondering what they called Journolist these days. It’s Fusion GPS.

Veteran Washington Reporter Says Media Won’t Report on Fusion GPS’ Activities as a Major “Source” of “News,” Because If You Dug Down Into It and Saw Fusion GPS’ Emails With the Media, “It will look like an apocalypse”

I also wonder what ACORN’s calling itself these days.  Not enough to look, just sorta curious.

 

More investigation the Dept. of “Justice” is uninterested in.

The State Department was ordered to produce documents to Judicial Watch, and has been processing only 500 pages per month of emails uncovered by the FBI in its investigation into Clinton’s non-government email system. The State Department has produced 17 batches of documents so far. At the current pace, the Clinton emails and other records won’t be fully available for possible release until at least 2020.

On June 15, the FBI provided a new disc of records to the State Department.  It turns out this disc contains 7,000 records recovered from Weiner’s laptop which now must be reviewed for potential public release.

With this jaw-dropping statement.

Our legal team pushed for all these records to be released more quickly but the Justice Department’s attorney said that her State Department agency client shouldn’t have to push more records out because of supposed diminished interest in Clinton emails “since November”!

So…..before the election they decided not to investigate cuz she was running for POTUS, now they’re not interested in investigating because the election is over.

But at least Congress is throwing fish at us!!!!

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is accusing top political aides of President Obama of making hundreds of requests during the 2016 presidential race to unmask the names of Americans in intelligence reports, including Trump transition officials.

Yeah, we saw that shit. What are you going to do about it?

Nunes said he intends to introduce legislation to address concerns about the unmasking process impacting Americans’ privacy.

Just what I expected. He’s “GONNA DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”. You know what that means? Get out your squeezy bulbs!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

 

While I’m for this, I wonder who’s gonna do shit when their lawlessness is fully exposed.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was ordered to turn over documents related to Operation Choke Point late last week.

District Court Judge Gladys Kessler told the government agency it had to begin working with the plaintiffs in the case for a nine-month discovery period beginning on June 20, 2017. “There is no justification whatsoever for not granting Plaintiffs’ Motion to Commence Discovery Immediately,” Judge Kessler said in her order…

Under that operation banks were allegedly pressured into cutting ties with industries the Obama-era agency viewed unfavorably. Payday and other short-term lenders as well as those involved in the firearms industry said they were specifically targeted under the program.

It must suck being a judge in a case exposing the Obama admin or Clinton felonies. I mean, Congress is going to HOLD HEARINGS TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that won’t lead to shit and the DO”J” is too busy Getting Trump!!!!!! to do shit about it so you’re just spinning your wheels.

 

Lady Gaga explains why Trump’s order was a good idea. I don’t think she did so on purpose though. It appears she thought this was a reason to give military training and heavy weaponry to trans.

It’s funny how often lefties try to prove their point but end up disproving their point.

 

Dammmmmmmit. Missed it by that much!

Astronomers first spotted an asteroid about as long as a 737 passenger jet on Sunday and analyzed its path to determine it had made a close pass by our planet three days earlier…

It came within about one-third the distance between Earth and the moon, roughly 76,448 miles (123,031 km).

Better luck next time.

 

Awwww, poor widdle global warmmongers!

Most media outlets cannot be bothered to report something that dramatically deflates their narrative. So it goes without saying that when NASA confirmed that ocean levels have actually been falling for the past few years, the media would be more than silent.

Gaia just refuses to go along no matter how much you care.

 

News you already knew but our fine media betters tried to hide!

Yeah, I’ll have to narrow that down, a lot.

News about the NFL you already knew but our fine media betters tried to hide!!!!!

National anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season, according to a new survey released by J.D. Power.

We’re watching. They pull that shit this year and they’re really going to find out how fucking pissed off Americans are.

Sure, they might get some SJWs to applaud, but they aren’t the target audience for the NFL and they aren’t the ones who buy tickets and merchandise.

 

I always wish I had installed a Kago-Kam, some of the stuff he got into must have been hilarious to see.

Turn on sound. It enhances the experience.
 

Doug M has a p-shop deal on Hillary’s book. With thanks to Noman Nescio, comment 9, for the idea.

So to answer the first question, we fooled ourselves.

Shame on us.

 

Does the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party want a revolution so they can get their emergency powers on?

I thought it was ridiculous at first, but the evidence just keeps mounting.

update below: I moved the gif, I had it in the wrong place. Now, back to our post!

Nother important, The Book We All Want To See!!!!!!!, Update!!!!!!!!! graphic stolen from DougM and his superior P-shop skills!

 

Now Really  Back To Our Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For years we’ve been discussing Failure Theater  and throwing fish at us to get us riled up to FIGHT OBAMA!!!!!!, but were called unhelpful, Nazi and Tea Partier. Turns out, we were actually two of the three.

“There’s no denying that he misses all of it,” says Cantor’s former deputy chief of staff, John Murray—a sentiment the ex-congressman himself confirms. When he talks to Boehner, Cantor tells me, Boehner will say something to the effect of “I am so glad I’m not there dealing with those mm-mm-mms”—those pesky Freedom Caucus members whom many in the GOP hold responsible for sparking the party’s new populist flavor and egging on the anger that led to Trump’s election.

Unhelpful in that we noticed GOP sliminess and Tea Partier because we wanted smaller gov’t. The Nazis, of course, were mostly killed off decades ago but their ideological descendants are the ones who want the gov’t to tell private enterprise how to do business.

But Cantor goes that extra slimy step.

 Not Cantor. “I never felt like that,” he says.,,

After seven years of pledging they could dismantle Obamacare, if only they had control of Congress and the White House, Republicans…

Asked if he feels partly responsible for their current predicament, Cantor is unequivocal. “Oh,” he says, “100 percent.”

He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.”

Ride the wave! The voters are too stupid to understand!!!!!!

He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.

Everybody should be embarrassed over every arf they ever gave.

A graphic representation

 

So… should we call the new party the Constitution Party or the Fuck DC Party? I keep going back and forth. I could be convinced to call it Trump’s Party just to freak people out, so long as he has no power in the party, he is a northeast liberal after all.

 

So…. as they were lying to us and not fighting Obama, what was Obama doing?

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Expanding the police state tactics the GOP and the Dems want. Yeah, we saw that shit.

With the Dept of “Justice” so focused on getting Trump and fixing the last election it’s funny that with all the spying and Big Brothering they couldn’t get any serious dirt on Trump.

That should tell you a lot about both Trump and the fuckheads who are busy trying to destroy the last vestige of the rule of law in America.

 

So…. what other slimy crap was the GOP ignoring while not watching what Obama was doing and not doing what they’ve repeatedly vowed to do?

Testimony of Thor Halvorssen to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

In 2012 I began researching a Venezuelan corruption scandal that also involved U.S. banks, companies, and even U.S. courts. This story should have received extensive exposure on the front pages of America’s national newspapers. Fusion GPS, however, was hired to spike these stories… Even though it was clearly acting as a public relations counsel on behalf of a foreign principal, Fusion GPS never registered under FARA and was able to engage in nefarious activities without public scrutiny…

Although shielding their clients from investigative reporting was an important part of Fusion GPS’s campaign, it was by no means the only thing they did for Chávez’s cronies. Alek Boyd, a prolific investigative journalist based in London who had published extensively about Derwick’s corruption, was targeted with false accusations of being a notorious pedophile, a convicted drug trafficker, a car thief, and an extortionist. Rather than backing down after these items appeared about him online, Mr. Boyd increased his scrutiny of Derwick. Weeks later, in an unsolved crime, three men broke into Mr. Boyd’s home, stole his computer equipment, and placed photographs of his daughters, taken with a telephoto lens, into the pockets of his raincoat. Mr. Boyd subsequently received a hand-written anonymous letter threatening his daughters with rape.

Since they also are important in Get Trump, they have unqualified immunity for all criminal acts.

 

Speaking of unqualified immunity for criminal acts, anybody related to the Democrats and/or Getting Trump.

Democrat IT Spy Tries To Run To Pakistan: We Connect Some Dots For You

Since our fine media betters are far too busy creating fake news from lying anonymous sources, read that. You can tell it’s not real journalism as they use named sources and publicly available information.

Amateurs.

Now this surprises the hell out of me!

GO FIGURE: Busted Pakistani IT Staffer for the DNC Lawyers Up With… Clinton Cronies

Huh, I thought they were all working for Mueller.

 

They banned guns at George Washington’s estate. A right the man fought for and they’re pissing on it. In Virginia. The home of Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison and the aforementioned George Washington.

I got out just in time.

Meanwhile, in Florida,

Imagine you’re a fully-armed Adam Putnam, Florida’s current Agriculture Commissioner and a strong contender for governor, where do you go out to eat? Well, for starters you tell your staff to take you to a place where you can pack heat and simultaneously eat meat.

Awesome. He’s like Jeb, GOP Voters Are Racists, Bush or Charlie Crist only opposite.

 

I linked Blazing Cat Fur yesterday but didn’t link the source of the article, when I saw the article later and read it I realized I’d missed the most ridiculous part of the thing.

Along with their bold image, Clemmer wrote a poem about their first period.

By “their” they mean, “This guy who’s pretending to be a woman.” So…. did he stab himself to get his period?

Here’s what I missed.

Clemmer describes themself as an activist in the menstrual health space and has created a character called Toni the Tampon which aims to help break down the stigma around periods.

No, really. There is “activist in menstrual health space” and “Toni the Tampon” in the same sentence.

Also, there is “activist in menstrual health space” in a sentence and “Toni the Tampon” in a sentence.

 

Daily Mail fact-checks Snopes

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse…

But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website’s version of events – including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

So…”Mostly False”.

Yeah, we’ve been noticing that since at least when they lied about Swift Boat Vets to try to get J Effin Kerry elected.

 

Was this even a question?

European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migrant crisis have seen a collapse in illegal migration, while unprotected states have seen it increase.

You still need people with balls on the other side (Hey China! Say hi to the Mongols for me!), but I’m pretty sure Hadrian showed us that walls work if you do have balls.

 

Why is Chicago called Second City?

The link’s dead, but in 2013 I wrote about

I love this one too. So NYC has a rat problem, just like any other hundreds of year old city with moldering, decaying sections, docks and underground areas, so they’re looking to fix it. A laudable goal, too bad it’s NYC pols who are in charge.

They’re going to sterilize female rats, which will mean they’re going to spread sterilizing stuff around the city.

I don’t know exactly how that’s going to fuck things up, but I do know that it will fuck things up and it won’t sterilize all the rats so all it will do is fuck things up without actually solving the problem. It will require a fix for whatever that fix fucks up.

I couldn’t find any results except in restricted areas, so I have no idea what it screwed up.

But that’s not the point, in 2017 we see

Chicago has tried just about everything to control a burgeoning rat population fueled by a construction boom and a mild winter. None of it has worked in a city seemingly overrun by the rodents.

Now, City Hall is trying something old and something new: A poison designed to make rats infertile, and dry-ice that produced promising results in parks and medians before the city was forced to stop the rat-suffocation experiment after learning the dry ice had not been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Second City indeed.

Good luck with that. I seriously wonder what horrible thing it’s going to accomplish since they cannot possibly do anything useful with moldering underground areas that have been breeding rats since before that cow burned the city down.

No, not the Golden Cow who left to try to burn the nation down, Mrs. O’Leary’s cow (who got a bum rap!).

 

Via  Zilla of the Resistance* we see something I didn’t know and it’s fucking awesome.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he (Wrong Way Corrigan V) filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?”

Awe-fucking-some! It’s all Americans’ God-Given Right to risk our own lives. With the Battle Cry: Hold My Beer!

*She’s not part of the nazi/leftists ‘resistance’, she’s been resisting the nazi/leftists for a long time. 

 

The Sun, driver of our climate, is just refusing to play the old Warmening Game.

Unlike the dude above pretending to be a woman, the Sun ain’t spotting.

One sun spot.

So not only does Gaia hate Al Gore, the Sun does as well.

Oh, Shatner. You’ve finally given your last f*ck.

Problem: Powerful Politicians needs graft!

Solution:

I’ve been digging a bit more into the I-65 Bridge between Jeffersonville, IN and Louisville, KY.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_expensive_U.S._public_works_projects

Fourth most expensive public works project in US history. More expensive than Verazzano Narrows, the Golden Gate, or an entire freeway from Evansville to Indianapolis, and it crosses a few hundred yards of muddy Ohio river. There are bridges out there 5 miles, 10 miles, 100 miles long that didn’t cost as much.

More expensive than the Verazzano Narrows bridge in NY? Think about that, this bridge is more expensive than a project that included bribes to some of the most expensive politicians in the nation?!?!?!

 

Problem: Trump bans transgender from the US military.

Solution: LGBT Army formed to take on ISIS.

 

Problem: Sessions is all about taking our stuff.

Solution

I’m a little surprised that Matthew Yglesias said something intelligent but there it is.

 

Problem: DNC staffers are arrested for various felonies and possible espionage.

 

Solution: Media ignores it.

Again, I’m surprised minitrue outlet in good lying noticed this and still reported on it.

 

Problem: GOP voters are pissed off at the GOP.

 

Solution:

According to Breitbart, House Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Matt Gaetz of Florida are launching a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s relationship with the FBI during its investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

I ain’t arfing.

 

Problem:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued Tuesday that President Trump is trying to “bully” Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an attempt to push him out of office,

Solution: Explain that Sessions works for Trump and serves at his convenience.

Nother problem: Schumer is a lying sack of corruption so he already knows that so explaining shit to him is as useless as expecting the GOP to do what they’ve run on in the last few elections.

Ubersolution: Vote out every incumbent in America. Get rid of the county recorder in Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area, Alaska.

 

Problem: Much of Canada is too cold to be useful or even very livable.

Solution via a light in the darkness:

Because of Premier Kathleen Wynne, Ontarians are now paying almost $2 billion more a year, ostensibly to fight climate change, through her cap-and-trade carbon pricing scheme.

Wait….that’s not a solution! That’s a scam to take money from the productive to give to parasites!

Convincing Canadians they want to spend $billions to fight a made-up problem and thus, ostesibly, keep their country an ice-box is one of the most impressive cons in the history of conning.

So the real problem: What would illustrate this Henry Gondorff approved long-con?

Solution:

 

 

Problem: Kago can’t demand food or explain how it wasn’t him who shit on the bathroom floor.

Solution:

An Amazon-commissioned ‘Shop the Future’ report claims the technology could hit the shops within 10 years and experts in the US are beginning to work on the machine to allow pooches to finally be able to answer the question ‘who’s a good boy?’.

So now Kago will be able to lie with body language and a computer device.

 

Problem: alexthechick’s birthday is coming up!

Solution:

Iconic Clown Motel for sale in Tonopah

How do you start a gofundme campaign?

 

Problem: Australia has too many cows.

Solution:

 

Problem: What to do with the Caballero?

Solution:

It’ll still need emissions controls. Now I have to shop for a crapalytic converter.
