I just can’t figure out a title, just like yesterday. I might be the only person who gets a laugh out of my headlines, but I usually do get that laugh.
Oh well, let’s tube.
Will Syria become a battleground between Turkey and the Kurds?
Turkish troops and special forces, backed by allied Syrian rebel groups,launched on August 24 the Euphrates Shield operation to liberate the strategic Syrian city of Jarablus on the border with Turkey from ISIS. Turkey’s president later vowed to press ahead with the military offensive until ISIS and Syrian Kurdish militias no longer posed a security threat to Turkey.
The Kurds tried to make nicey with the Turks, but as the Armenians discovered, the Turks aren’t all that into diversity.
Stories coming out of Syria are all confused as to who’s who. I’ll provide a helpful guide. It stopped being about anybody but jihadis long ago. Except for the murderous Syrian dictator’s forces, they align with whoever they think can help them today.
The only constants are that Iranian-allied terror groups are always for the murderous Syrian dictator and the Saudi-allied terror groups are always against the murderous Syrian dictator. Below that level, it gets murky. If Turkey gets too rambunctious, expect Saudi terror groups to ally with Iranian terror groups (both without involving the murderous dictator) to ally with the Kurds to kick them out. If/when they succeed, they’ll go back to killing each other. It’s a witch’s dog’s breakfast brew of murderous fanatics.
The murderous Syrian dictator does have a plan now that his financiers have a new ally.
The Syrian government has ramped up its efforts to teach the Russian language to secondary school students, nearly a year after Moscow started airstrikes on behalf of the Bashar al-Assad regime.
More of that Obama/Clinton smirt duhplomacy.
So having a black Little Orphan Annie and wymyn Ghostbusters is Awesome!!! but you’d better cast previous non-white roles as their ethnicity!!!!!!
Disney is supposedly making a live-action Mulan (before a live-action Futurama, TANJ)
“to tell Disney that we demand to see them cast an Asian Mulan.” The lead instigator, Michigan children’s librarian Natalie Molnar, vented against the practice of “whitewashing” — that is, employing “white Caucasian actors and actresses in roles originally meant to be characters of color.”
This is pretty funny.
…Korean-American Daniel Dae Kim to play the villainous role of Shan Yu … Japanese-American George Takei to play the Chinese Emperor and another Korean American, Margaret Cho, to play the Chinese matchmaker.
That’s like casting an Italian to play Erik the Red cuz they’re both Europeans. Although I’m pretty sure casting Margaret Cho as anything is a movie-killer.
Let’s go to the Dem Perfidy section of the post. The only hard part about doing that is deciding how many stories to actually post. It’s like a hydra-headed thing, as soon as you post one, two more spring up.
Remember when the GOP was going to PUNISH THE DEMS FOR THEIR TOTALLY ILLEGAL SIT-IN OVER GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!?
So how’s that going?
A memo from minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s office calling for a “gun violence prevention day of action” today includes a long itinerary of scripted actions to be taken by Democrat representatives under orders from the 76-year-old gun control zealot. The actions called for are tightly controlled, right down the the tweets the powerful California Democrat wants the staff of representatives to use on social media on her orders
And since it’s Dems going after guns, you know there’s jaw-dropping dishonesty involved.
272 mass shootings this year. When will @SpeakerRyan give us a vote? #NoFlyNoBuy #CloseTheLoophole #GunVote
You would think you might have noticed there being more than one Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook or Pulse Night Club every single day this year
You would think that only if you didn’t just accept that Dem gun-grabbers gonna lie like a Clinton caught with his dick in the cookie jar.
Obama campaigning for Hillary! in his own inimitable way. I love the URL, barack-obama-reagan-fan/
It’s not that long and it’s an interesting look into how the Dems just crap on their constituents even in something as simple as a campaign event and yet, they still don’t complain.
I have to quote this bit
be told that they could not bring water with them to witness the president speak on behalf of the indisposed Democratic presidential nominee.
Okay, that’s funny. Don’t they know what happens when you dehydrate?
And that, folks, is why we will never see peak irony.
Dem Congresscritter Uses Gov’t To Shut Up Enemies!
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.) urged the Department of Justice to prosecute conservative groups that were targeted by the IRS, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
You can file that under News We All Knew.
The reason it may have taken the IRS fourteen months to turn my IRS files over to Judicial Watch is that they state a United States senator from Oregon was involved. At the time both senators from Oregon were Democrats. But only one, Ron Wyden,
It’s what they do, act like fascists as they’re screeching about the latest Emmanuel Goldstein Being Hitler!!!!! Or Worse!!!!!!
Speaking of which, yesterday I made fun of the GOP’s Failure Theater in IMPEACHING KOSKINEN!!!!!!!, little did I know the fish wasn’t just stinky, it wasn’t even fish! It was just a handful of shit covered in nuoc mam.
But GOP leaders are cool to the impeachment push, which stands little chance of succeeding. Some Republicans argue that an impeachment vote two months before elections risked irritating voters,
How out of touch do you have to be to think that attacking the IRS will irritate voters? No really, that’s like a prosecutor saying he can’t go after organized crime before an election or he’ll irritate voters.
So who else has noticed that all those hearings are OUTRAGE!!!! Theater and that even if they actually try to accomplish something, there’s nobody to enforce their will?
The IT specialist who ran Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server ignored a subpoena to testify before Congress Tuesday, leaving GOP lawmakers fuming and threatening retribution. (hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahha snort….no, I’m fi….hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaa thud)
What happened? Oh…. Where was I?
Two other witnesses linked to Clinton’s e-mail server invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and repeatedly refused to answer questions.
There will be no repercussions. Oh, the GOP will shout about it, but they won’t actually do anything and if they do try to do anything, the Dept. of “Justice” certainly won’t be any help, the Justice League of America would be more help. They’re at least entertaining.
Yesterday I linked the post comparing this election to Flight 93. Since it was pretty down on both candidates, the push-back was pretty strong and from all over the place.
Some also complained about the aptness of the analogy:
That’s funny, I praised the aptness of the analogy, and I love analogy. I like analogy the way a Clinton loves lying.
This shows the author is really paying attention.
First is the objection to anonymity and specifically to the pseudonym. Anonymity supposedly proves that I am a coward, while the use of “Decius” shows that I am a hypocrite. What am I risking? I freely admit that, unlike the real Decius, I don’t expect to die. But I do have something to lose, and may well yet lose it.
If you come to the attention of the intertuby left, they’ll do everything they can to destroy your life. Hell, that article is way worse than a stupid shirt.
Read the whole thing, it’s a good read.
Yesterday a guy tried run over 3 Phoenix cops
Similar things are going on in Chicago where Clintonista extraordinaire, Rahm, is busy turning it into what Hillary! wants to do with America.
In other news, an SUV was observed on the southside (006?) driving through the alley behind the station with a M/1 passenger taking video of personal cars parked in the police lot. The SUV’s plate comes back to a rental at one of the airports, so it appears to be another escalation in the directed harassment, intimidation and targeting of officers.
So yesterday they posted this,
An officer’s personal vehicle was torched the other night near 67th and Kostner. Written on the back of the car in marker was “Fuck the Police.”
People are now targeting off-duty cops. The Dems and their BLM front group are doing their best to turn America into some third-world, banana-republic shithole where only the rich and connected are safe in their persons.
Sure, let’s elect Hillary! to save the country!!!!!!! For criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nough of that. Let’s watch a Science! fight that I didn’t realize was happening.
I was looking for a link about how there’s no brontosaurus anymore when I found a bunch of links with this.
Paleontologists have spent the last century insisting that the species and its name (Latin for “thunder lizard”) are invalid… Nevertheless, from comic books to high literature to the Flintstones, the name brontosaurus has invaded popular culture and refuses to die.
…A team of paleontologists l…., they say they found that Brontosaurus really is in its own group. Its fossils share distinct, incomparable bone features—enough for it to reclaim its iconic genus name.
So the science isn’t settled.
Now we just need to get Pluto back into planethood and at least something would be right with the world.
I hate the Eagles only slightly less than the I hate the Cowboys, but I never realized exactly how correct I was to do so.
I saw a link to a story about how (Screw The)NFL teams got their nicknames, it was all over place so I finally clicked it. They’re mostly uninteresting except for this.
In 1933, Bert Bell and Lud Wray purchased the bankrupt Frankford Yellowjackets. The new owners renamed the team the Eagles in honor of the symbol of the National Recovery Act, which was part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.
Sonomobatch, so they’re named after one of the most destructive forces not named “Carter” or “Obama” ever inflicted on this nation.
Last and totally, hilariously, not least: It begins!
Now, it is my understanding that is(sic, and not my sic! V) she were to be incapacitated, or if she were too ill to continue, or if, God forbid, she should pass away, then the Democratic National Committee would hold a meeting to fill that vacancy. And I don’t think it would be Joe Biden. I don’t think it would be Tim Kaine. I’m fairly confident she would be replaced by Michelle Obama.
Is that a “Heh” or an “Oh shit?!?!??!”?
It’s both! You don’t get the funny without the endy.
