False

On February 19, 2017, 60 Minutes broadcast a segment about Remington Arms Company, LLC and two tragic incidents which occurred in 2011.  In narrating the details related to each incident, 60 Minutes omitted and misrepresented key facts which would have allowed the viewer to have an accurate and complete understanding about each.  For example, 60 Minutes knew but did not disclose that both of the rifles in question were examined and tested by forensic scientists employed by each state’s crime lab and were found to be in proper working order.  Remington provides this response to offer a more complete record of the relevant facts and a comprehensive overview of the incidents described in the story, and the recall which was at the center of the story.

They’re trying to ‘audi’ Remington. They should understand that Remington is not a EUnuch company.

 

True

Back in September, I testified before the House Financial Services Committee on the allegation that the Obama administration had paid Iran a ransom—at the time it was believed to be $400 million but it was later revealed that the figure was more than three times that amount—in cash for the release of American hostages held by Iran.

Like so many ‘revelations’ from the Age of Obama, we all saw this happen. In real time. The only people who didn’t know that are the ones who get their news from Minitrue.

 

False

Spanish inflation hit 3 percent in February compared to the same month last year…

Ministers also downplayed any fears for Spain’s economic recovery and believe inflation will be below 2 percent in the second quarter of the year.

“We don’t see it as a threat,” Marisa Poncela, secretary of state for trade, said of the inflation trend in an interview published in Expansion newspaper on Monday.

The funniest part is that they expect their serfs to believe it.

 

False

Fourth Circuit Sets the Stage for a New National Gun Ban

 

They’re setting the stage for a revolution, civil war or War of Passive Aggression, depending on what we decide to call it after it’s over.

 

False

Rosie O’Donnell will lead an anti-Trump protest outside the White House Tuesday just before the president speaks to a joint session of Congress for the first time.

Rosie’s leading Trump’s 2020 reelection team.

 

True

A prediction: when the “Wall” along the southern border begins to be constructed, the left’s professional activists will implement an extensive disruption campaign…

Protestors will stand in the path of construction, just at activists have, in the past, chained themselves to trees in the Northwest to stop logging.

At night, other operatives will target the Wall for destructive sorties. Those may occasionally include the use of light explosives, easily smuggled from Mexico.

It will be the American version of the French Resistance, only this time fighting for fascism against freedom.

 

Well, true so far as it goes. The backlash will not be pleasant. The funniest part will be when the really thuggish illegal types start raping and murdering the lefties who are “protecting” them.

 

False

Protest Is Increasingly Becoming Criminalized In America

Unfortunately, it appears this trend is about to get a lot worse following the DAPL protests and increased activism we’ve seen since Trump’s election. As The Hill reports:

 

No, the protests are increasingly becoming criminal in America, what with all the masks and molotovs and bricks and the glavin!

See, it’s the Hill, they have to obfuscate and lie. They would never mention that lefty-paid-for protests are just “free-violence” zones, not violence-free zones as lefties like to pretend.

False! replacing True!

Fools are getting tats based on Elizabeth, Fork-ed Tongue, Warren.

Persist We Much!

When I saw the headline on it I was wondering how they were going to change their Bernie tattoos into Fauxcahontas ones but lefty nitwits are getting tatoos based on a fake American Indian instead of a real socialist.

Eh, maybe 2017 just wants the crazy to come at a slower pace than 2016 so we’ll have to wait.

Mark Cuban: Why I threw a Twitter hissy fit

If Mark Cuban doesn’t find it funny, he’s using his influence to try to force you into swallowing your laughter…

Cuban, who has taken offense to the media’s coverage of his team in the past, charged the San Francisco-based company with confusing humor with disrespect, and threatened Bleacher Report until the tweet was gone…

When Levy came to the social media team’s defense in his response, arguing that “sometimes bold tag lines are used” to connect with Millennials, Cuban fired back with another threat.

“This is an issue where if it’s not down immediately, I’ll communicate with the millennials in the way I know how to,” he wrote. “Your choice.”

As soon as Bleacher Report deleted its tweet, which it acknowledged in a separate, cryptic post to Twitter, Cuban recalled his ammunition, deleting all of his own tweets that referenced the feud.

 

No, you had your hissy fit because you’re a totalitarian thug who doesn’t allow ungood thoughts.

Which makes your hissy fit at Trump even funnier.

 

Kinsley Truth! with a lie

Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted Monday he has a long history of doing favors for community members who need help with city business —

but claims it’s OK because he “never pressures” his department heads.

Yeah, see,

A member of Mayor de Blasio’s transition team was released from jail after a top NYPD official received a phone call from the mayor inquiring about the arrest…

but Sgt. Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, tells the Post: “If a guy has a warrant, you don’t let him go. Period. There is no discretion. What if you release him [and] he drives a block, blows a red light and runs somebody over and kills him? As a [police] supervisor, you have a lot to answer for. If you’re the mayor, I get it, you have friends. Is it supposed to happen? No – but don’t be hypocritical about it. De Blasio condemned the people involved in ticket fix. He passed judgment. You can’t have a double standard.”

You can’t? Where the hell have you been? Their standard standard is their only standard.

I hope he’s reelected. I love to watch smug, superior NYers vote for such a relentlessly, totalitarianly, hypocrat.

 

False with an unintended True.

Headline

HOLIDAY ON THE SUN Nasa to launch Solar Probe Plus mission to the surface of the SUN to protect Earth from ‘huge solar event’

Seriously? My first thought was, “We can’t ‘reach the surface’ of the Earth with current materials tech, it’s sorta hot there.” Apparently the very first paragraph agrees with me.

The Solar Plus Probe will come within four million miles of the sun’s surface,

So  4 million miles is now “on”?

My second thought was that solar flares are bigger than the Earth. How the fuck are we supposed to affect something larger than the world when we can’t reach it?

Scientists hope it will unlock the mysteries of the Sun’s corona,…

And it is a prime spot for producing potentially devastating solar wind, flares and mass “ejections” that can reach Earth’s atmosphere.

So the headline should actual be Nasa is sending a probe most of the way to the Sun and are hoping to get some data on solar activity.

The truth I was talking about? “Journalists” are idiots who think we’re more stupider.

That’s what happens when you keep pretending Joe Biden isn’t an idiot. Sooner or later you become what you believe.

 

True

President Trump has invited the family members of those killed by illegal immigrants and the widow of Justice Antonin Scalia to attend his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.

What’s true about that?

Trump is the best troll on or off the ‘tubes. They’re there to counter the lefties “Look at these good immigrants!” message (where the “good immigrants” invariably are either associated with/are terrorists or are associated with/are felons).

 

True

‘LACK OF POLITICAL WILL’ SEES ITALY STUCK ON ASSISTED SUICIDE LAWS

Oh, not the stupidity about “political will”, the fact that totally tolerant lefties do not even understand how there can be a differing viewpoint with validity.

If their current Most Important Issue There Is is not enacted, it’s always due to cowardice by the politicians.

They never seem to understand the reason for that “cowardice”. The idea that the people who voted for them do not want that particular lefty fever.

 

True!

europeans

 

 

If you could petition the Lord with prayer, we wouldn’t be so screwed.

Or perhaps…. this is the trip. The best part.

That’s kinda scary.

 

In Sweden, we see the police are just too darn busy to be investigating crimes where there’s no chance of conviction! (Google translation)

A group of men filmed themselves when they raped a woman and then put the movie on Snapchat. Tots that there is film of the assault where the perpetrator’s name is mentioned, and their faces are visible, are not investigated the assault of the police.
– We are not staff of the moment, explains police investigators Therese Ottosson for free times.

Now, I’m gonna bet that rape did not get reported, I know that’s how the Brits lower crime, so maybe this makes more sense.

But as to Sweden being the “Rape Capital of the World” due to recent immigration, I’m not seeing it (chart stolen again from those gullible Swedes):

(this chart, stolen from Geoff who stole it from a helpful Swede)

statistics-yay

Yeah, ‘number of reported…’. The one above, with full recording, was not “reported”.

 

I’m not sure what to make of this

The overnight violence in Les Ulis followed earlier clashes between police and protesters at the weekend, in which several dozen people were detained.

In Les Ulis three police cars were damaged, French media report.

Tension has gripped some Paris suburbs since 2 February, when a man called Theo was allegedly beaten up and raped.

It’s another excuse for the usual car-b-que but with extra firebombs and vandalism. Did the cops really rape some kid? That seems unlikely. It is something the people rioting normally do so convincing them someone else acts the way they do shouldn’t be hard.

That’s the way I’d bet.

 

I do have another bet I’d make.

It’s gonna be a bad time to go to war with the French.

Front National leader Marine Le Pen has again surged in the polls in France as she attempts to become the country’s first female president.

As we all know, French armies are victorious only when not led by a Frenchman, but they’re going to be led by a French woman. The last time that happened they kicked the shit out England.

Then they burned her at the stake (for cross-dressing funnily enough). But I figure she has more to worry about being burned at the stake before she takes office.

 

I’ve been trying to figure out what the hell is going on in Romania. They had their protests that lasted for a couple weeks. The gov’t said, “We’re gonna stop that bill that allows to take bribes!” Much to my surprise they then actually did it! I still think they’re doing a little flim flam, but now people are protesting for the gov’t.

Weird. I wish them luck.

 

I have to admit, I’m rooting for the ACLU on this one.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has now demanded that the Portland Police Department stop using riot gear in response to protests and potential riots.

Sarah Armstrong, spokeswoman for the ACLU of Oregon, said that when police show up in riot gear, it escalates the situation and that police policies should aim for de-escalation, according to KGW. These comments come on the tail end of when police showed up in riot helmets to the illegal Portland Resistance protest on Monday. That protest was partially sponsored by Black Lives Matter PDX.

Let Seattleans live in the shit they fling.

At first I wondered why the Lollipop Guild got so militant when someone told me that’s the name for Seattle. Fuck em.

 

 

Since we’re talking about the hate-filled left coast, let’s discuss their stupidity too!

From the L.A. Times, July 2015:

Dams are a relic of the Industrial Age…. They’re particularly ill-suited to the era of extremes—heat waves, floods and droughts—that climate change has brought on.

The New Republic, April 2015:

The Pacific Institute’s Peter Gleick said: “Even if we built a couple of dams, we don’t have water to fill them. We’re tapped out. The traditional answer of building more reservoirs won’t solve our problems.” Building additional reservoirs does little when there’s no snow or rain to fill them.

Indeed, so certain were they of their “facts” that California Governor Moonbeam mocked those who thought the infrastructure should be shored up:

I’ve never heard of such utter ignorance. Building a dam won’t do a damn thing about fires or climate change or the absence of moisture in the air and ground of California. If they want to run for president, they had better do eighth grade science before they made such utterances.

 

They learned nothing from the 30 Years War. Religious extremism always comes back to bite you on the ass!

 

Now some asshole in the DHS is giving Minitrue the opportunity to lie about Trump.

Analysts at the Homeland Security Department’s intelligence arm found insufficient evidence that citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries included in President Donald Trump’s travel ban pose a terror threat to the United States.

First, that was Obama’s list. But that’s not important, they want you to believe that this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, thi…(you get the point) never happened. 

Our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters rely on our having no memory.

 

I’m not sure why this article is so long.

Why the MSM Is Ignoring Trump’s Sex Trafficking Busts

She could have just written,

“Because they feel their duty is to make him look bad no matter the lies they commit or the deeds they omit.”

Truthfully, I didn’t read it but I’m sure it’s all erudite and learned and shit. Sometimes brevity is the soul of wit.

 

Via This Ain’t Hell (but we can see them from here), this is all about the fucked up.  Some cops went to a 90 year old guy’s home for a ‘welfare check’ at night.

“They went from window to window shining lights in,” Ronnie Roberts said describing what he saw when he arrived at the Craig’s home…

When he arrived, he says he says volunteered to go up to the house and make contact with Eugene Craig whom he told deputies he knew. But Roberts says he was told to stand back by deputies…

Roberts says he was standing on the driveway when he saw four officers try to break down the front door. Fail. Then run around back and Roberts said he heard them kick in the back door to the garage.

 

The guy heard this and grabbed a gun to see what was happening, when the cops broke in they killed him.

This quote sums up the 21st century pretty well.

“There are certain things that allow us to immediately violate the Fourth Amendment and go into a location. That’s exigency, which is basically a fancy word for emergency,” said Kelly. “In some of those cases it’s better to kind of just walk away and come back and then keep reassessing. Use alternative means to maybe find (information.)”

“Go talk to the neighbors have you seen this person?…

Yeah see, as we saw earlier you told the neighbor to fuck off. They should not have done what they did and now this guy was murdered in his own home because they were tactical operators with a tactical operations order to operate tactically.

I hope they are all fired and whoever was in charge gets criminally charged.
It won’t happen. Sovereign immunity you know.

Which makes me pissed off when some cop claims they’re held to a higher standard than a civilian.

 

Now why didn’t they think of this before?!?!?!

Hundreds of people including Hollywood stars have held a rally in Beverly Hills ahead of the Oscars on Sunday to denounce President Trump’s immigration policies.

I look forward to hearing about all the passion, stupidity, willful ignorance and moral relativism at the Oscars. On Monday.

I’ve never watched the Oscars, but this year I’m not watching it for an entirely different reason!

Actually, just for one more reason.

 

Well it’s official,Twitter is un-American!

Twitter is locking accounts that swear at famous people

Swearing at famous people is an American’s right! It’s right there in the Interstate Commerce Clause and the pursuit of happiness clause!

It also means I can never go on Twitter. Unless I want to go through the hassle just to be banned I guess.

 

Now maybe I’m outta line, but I would ask the old dude before I charged this woman with anything except premeditated “helping an old guy get a chubby”

A detective says cell phone video taken at a local assisted care facility shows a care worker performing lewd acts in front of a 100-year-old man…

On the video, Fultz can be seen doing lewd acts in front of the man and then straddling his leg.

“I can show you new things, I can show you new things,” Fultz can be heard saying on the video.

She also can be seen “mooning” the elderly resident.

Even if he can’t answer I’d say leave her alone. Just cuz he’s 100 doesn’t mean he isn’t still a guy.

 

In my defense, they aren’t high heels…. they’re European!

An 18-stone (250lbs V) jazz fan who sued for compensation after an accident at Ronnie Scott’s was fat, drunk and careless in her high heels, a judge found.

Who you calling “she”?

HATE CRIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

As they say, “Wait for it…. Wait for it…..”

Hyenas Have Good Lawyers!

Posted: July 26, 2016 by veeshir in Brevity etc.

TBS has issued a formal mea culpa for a satirical video produced by one of its comedy websites that equated Hillary Clinton to a hyena.

Zero American flags at the DNC,  one Palestinian Terrortories flag and some USSR ones outside.

 

Important Update!!!!! Via Sondra K!!!!!! (Juan Williams is not having a good Outnumbered. This is my favorite ‘chicks on a couch” show)

Everybody loves the tears of hippies, so how about some Bernie-bro and broette tears?

Important Above The Post Update!!!!!!!!

Carly Fiorina rebuts this fool in a succinct manner (of course, she’s not of the better classes, new money and all that, so can be safely ignored by the NRO fools)

…I think Donald Trump taps into an anger that I hear every day. People are angry that a commonsense thing like securing the border or ending sanctuary cities is somehow considered extreme. It’s not extreme, it’s commonsense. We need to secure the border.

People are also angry at a professional political class of both parties that talks a good game, gives good speeches, but somehow nothing ever really changes. And people are angry as well at a double standard in the media.

Now back to me linking link bait already in progress

Kevin D. Williamson, in a click bait post, calls me a whiner.

It starts out almost good with this bit of history.

What’s generally misunderstood on the Left is that the tea-party movement did not arise as an alternative to the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Democrats but as an alternative to the Bush-McConnell-Hastert Republicans, who were judged to have spent too much, warred too recklessly, and — most significant — to have been too ready to make themselves complicit in the bailouts.

but then veers into non-Scottish, and thus, utter crap.

Not mentioned is how the GOP establishment has been calling us names since the early Tea Party days.

Strawman alert

I’ve spent the past few days at FreedomFest in Las Vegas, Mark Skousen’s annual gathering of liberty-minded activists — think of it as CPAC for people who like weed and gold coins and who are maybe interested in hearing a pitch about taking up domicile in Belize.

Yeah, we’re all like that.

It’s so much easier to make up something to make fun of than to actually pay any attention and debate honestly. But then, the NRO have been tools of the establishment of the GOP since they were horrified that McCain actually chose that snowbilly breeder to run with him. Check out the URL (republican-base-and-donald-trump-whinos-are-frustrated-and-choosing-foolishly), no mention or even any clue that maybe the NRO wing of the GOP is choosing foolishly. They’re smart and we’re stupid. End of story.

…but you may be less familiar with the WHINO. The WHINO is a captive of the populist Right’s master narrative, which is the tragic tale of the holy, holy base, the victory of which would be entirely assured if not for the machinations of the perfidious Establishment.

Again with the strawman.

You see, just because we’ve been trying to get the GOP to do something to stop the slide, and they’ve been fighting us for years (over Obama’s immigration amnesty and Obamacare, the repeals of which were huge factors in why there’s a GOP majority right now) means that we think that if only they had listened to Dr. Ron Paul, we’d be in Schaefer City right now,

More straman

Barack Obama? Pshaw. The real enemy is Jeb Bush.

Well, nominating Jeb Bush is exactly what we’re fighting against in the GOP, but the We’re Better and Smarter Tnan You party knows what’s best and we uneducated, mostly illiterate, racist masses need to get in line. Just because the NRO Wing of the GOP is in line with the Dems, doesn’t mean we should try to get them to change, it means we need to accept the will of our betters.

That this is a deeply stupid view of the world should go without saying, but if you need evidence, consider that the WHINO vote has settled for the moment upon Donald Trump,

You know, this fool could take that poll and look at why it’s happening, but no, he’s smart and everybody who disagrees with him is stupid.

Just because Obama’s illegal immigration amnest was such a huge issue for the GOP base, and why the GOP currently has both houses of Congress, which GOP majority endorsed what they were elected to fight, means we’re stupid and he’s smart.

Ask the WHINO to explain that and you will get the characteristic WHINO whine: “But what about the baaaaaaaaase!?!”

He’s surely going to beat the crap out of that strawman, he’s going to have to ask the Wizard for more straw!!!!!

Which is to say, the WHINO loves Trump not because Trump confounds the Democrats or because he constitutes a serious threat to a Democratic victory in 2016, but because he confounds the Republicans and constitutes a serious threat to a Republican victory in 2016.

Ooooohhhh, so close, and yet so far away.

Trump is popular because he’s the only one saying anything about an issue on which the GOP regained the Senate in the last election, and then they sided with Obama against the people who elected them. They aren’t dancing with who brung ’em.

What this fool does not understand, nay, refuses to even contemplate, is that Jeb Bush is a serious threat to a GOP victory in 2016.

The worst part of the WHINO approach is the campaign strategery.

Listen, there aren’t enough ‘ha’s in the world for that ‘bwa’.

How many times do these fools have to force an “electable” candidate who then gets trounced to understand that their election ‘strategery’ is flawed?

No, you see, all those “electable” candidates keep losing because we’re stupid and they’re smart.

A little funny.

If you are a conservative, and if you believe that the way to reform American public policy is to elect conservatives, and you arrived at Election Day believing that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were, from the conservative point of view, interchangeable commodities, then you are either a fanatic or extraordinarily ill-informed.

From the standpoint of Obamacare and illegal immigration, they were interchangable.

This fool refuses to accept that. Because we’re stupid and he’s smart.

Does this fool not recall that Bush won more of the Mormon vote than Romney?

Oh right, it’s because they’re stupid and he’s smart.

I could point out his idiocies and strawmen until the cows come home, but I’ll end on this bit of lack of historical knowledte.

Republicans would probably be more inclined to give an ear to campaign advice from people who had — stay with me here — a good record for winning elections.

Yet another Global Warming rally cancelled due to winter weather.

Now, I know you all expect to be sunbathing in New Haven for spring break, but you’ve gotta understand that even if you’re right about climate change (-it is the editorial stance of this blog that you aren’t), it wouldn’t happen that quickly.

Maybe look at a calendar next time?  You can still expect cold weather in February for a while longer.

I believe the science is settled on that.
