Important, Above The Post, Finally!, Update With Newly Changed Link!

Trump fires FBI Director Comey.

Liberal press interprets this as an attempt to derail Comey’s investigation of Trump’s alleged Russia connections in 3…2…1…

Bingo!

President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation by the agency into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s election meddling [emphasis mine – Paco].

At least 4 months late.

Now back to our post in its entirety!

 

Nick Kristof, who if he didn’t exist I’m not sure even FrnakJ could invent, mansplains abortion to backward Xtian women

If that seems incongruous, let’s remember that conservative Christianity’s ferocious opposition to abortion is relatively new in historical terms.

The Bible does not explicitly discuss abortion, and there’s no evidence that Christians traditionally believed that life begins at conception. St. Thomas Aquinas, the father of much of Catholic theology, believed that abortion was murder only after God imbued fetuses with a soul, at 40 days or more after conception.

So…. historically recent? In about 30 seconds of searching, we find this scholarly dude writing about how there was significant discussion in early Christianity about its sinfullness.

Huh. Why it’s as if Nick Kristof is an idiot?!?! Possibly. But he’s more of a fakenewser who spreads disinformation and misinformation to provide affirmation to NY Times readers because they’re good enough, they’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like them!

 

I didn’t realize this was an option.

The deranged drifter charged with gunning down a shelter worker after she fought off his rape attempt refused to show up to court Monday for the first day of his ​murder ​trial.

West Spruill has been a no-show to Bronx Supreme Court before –

Huh. You learn something new every day.

 

Veeshir Vact Check: True!

Dr. Herbert Lin, one of the nation’s pre-eminent thinkers on cybersecurity policy, shuns the internet-connected devices that fill some American homes.

He’ll have nothing to do with “smart” refrigerators, hands-free home speakers he can call by name, intelligent thermostats and the like.

“People say to me, ‘How can you have a doctorate in physics from MIT and not trust in technology?’ And I look at them and say, ‘How can I have a doctorate in physics from MIT and trust technology?’ ” Lin said.

The more you know the more paranoid you are.

Also, I wonder how many viruses (virii?) I picked up at that site.

 

More totally impartial judiciating!

In Fourth Circuit Hearing on Obama’s Travel Restrictions, ACLU Lawyer Admits, Sure, This Executive Order Might Be Legal if Hillary Clinton Signed It
Well, this was all pretty much implied from the lower courts’ reasoning — which always centered not on the law itself, but on statements Trump made (or was alleged by Rudy Giulliani to have made).

Minus those statements, then the EO passes muster. It’s facially constitutional. But they’re saying a bad man wants to pass it, which makes it unconstitutional by prior statements.

 

Hmmmm, what’s the current state of American Jurisprudence?

Chief Justice John Roberts first says the mandate in the law requiring individuals to buy health insurance is not a tax.

Then he says it is a tax.

He upholds the individual mandate—as a tax, not a penalty—as the law of the land. But then says it would not be “unlawful” for Americans to violate the law’s mandate that they “shall” buy health insurance–as long as they are willing to pay the “penalty” for not obeying the law.

 

So what you’re saying is that if you pass a law saying it’s not a tax it is a tax, except when it’s not, and Trump’s a doody-head?

I really need to read the commerce clause more closely cuz I just don’t see that. Or is it the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness clause?

 

Is this true? Cuz if it is, I don’t like it.

A judge on Tuesday erased a 2013 murder conviction against former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, ruling that case law in Massachusetts has long established that defendants who die before their appeals are heard should have their convictions vacated. (emphasis me, V)

I do not like that at all.

 

 

So…you remember when we are, right?

Yeah…. about that.…..

So..what size 12 gauge shot should I use for deer?

A more scholarly look at it.

Ungulate gnawing on bone has been reported in the taphonomic and zooarchaeological literature, but there are no known reports of ungulates altering human remains. Herein, we report on the first known photographic evidence of deer gnawing human remains. (emphasis none of your business, V)

Doesn’t make it any better.

 

‘Reality!!!!’ is winning on points, the only way reality can win is with a TKO, or the asteroid I guess.

Roger L. Simon writes

If the 2016 presidential election were actually about genuine political policies, Donald Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton in one of the biggest landslides of all time.

Well yeah, but they’ve been making sure it’s about anything but what’s going on in the world or what Hillary! and Trump have been saying they’ll do.

Our fine media betters have to create a ‘Reality!!!!” more conducive to a Hillary! win or the stupid voters might not figure out for themselves that they’re supposed to vote for her.

 

I saw the headline for this story, “Inflation about to explode higher” and I had half a post written about how it’s already exploded higher, but our fine governmental betters, aided and abetted by our fine media betters, have been hiding it. But then I started reading the article (I know. But sometimes I feel I should click the links I post and read what’s linked.)

We all know the BLS artificially suppresses the CPI through bullshit… adjustments made by government apparatchiks at the behest of their politician bosses. Some obscure theoretical academic  calculation called owners equivalent rent accounts for almost a quarter of the CPI weighting.

It has no relation to reality as it has increased by only 12% since 2012, while the Case Shiller Housing Price Index is up 52% over the same time frame.

Exactly. Everything I buy is more expensive, ridiculously in some cases. Coffee has increased in price, by a bunch, as the package it comes in has become smaller. I save Folger’s coffee plastics for storing stuff like rice or I might not have noticed how much smaller they’ve become.

‘Reality!!!!’ has to trump (heh) reality or the wrong people might be elected.

 

Chemical warfare in Mosul, but that’s one reality that goes against the ‘Reality!!!!’ that Obama is not a feckless incompetent on the international stage.

Up to 1,000 people have been treated for breathing problems linked to fumes from a sulfur plant set ablaze during fighting with Islamic State in northern Iraq and U.S. officials say U.S. forces at a nearby airfield are wearing protective masks

Hmmm, now why haven’t our fine media betters been noticing this? The Wash Post has an article where they mention this, but every other article is in a furrin newspaper, like the Grauniad (which I only link to point and laugh).

 

Another result of Obama-helping ‘Reality!!!!’, the Turks are helping the Russians help the murderous Syrian dictator fight the “moderate rebels”, called “Syrian Democratic Forces”(SDF), J Effin Kerry is all excited about being on our side. The problem is that there are Kurdish forces in the SDF, and Turkey feels the same way about the Kurds they do about Armenians.

Turkish-backed rebels have launched an offensive to seize a north Aleppo town held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) coalition led by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

So Russian allies in the region are fighting our allies in the region.

We’re back in the Cold War, Hillary!’s “reset” button reset us to 1968. Another reality we have to ignore.

If anybody wants to know what “feckless disregard of reality” means……

A senior U.S. defence official said the groups struck by Turkish jets were not themselves U.S.-backed but were “close to and friendly with” the fighters Washington is working with.

Yeah, “close and friendly” in this case means, “They’re our allies when they’re over there (points to the left) but not when they’re over there (points toward Allepo)!” In other words, nobody in the world not an American citizen is afraid of Obama.

Remember, “Reality!!!!” is much easier to control than reality but reality always wins out.
Now, while I deplore my racism, does this look like “mostly peaceful” protesters are getting ready to make the ‘mostly peaceful’ protest even more mostly-peaceful? Or could it be totally not-jihadis getting ready to totally not perform terror acts in NC?

Police are investigating yet another gun store robbery in North Carolina….

The incident is the latest in a series of pawn and gun shop robberies in the area—many of which use similar techniques….

According to WSOC TV, more than 420 guns have been stolen in the Charlotte area this year.

Either way, I’m sure lawful gun owners will be blamed for whatever the deal is. That’s officially approved ‘Reality!!!!’, reality cannot be allowed to intrude on the current election.

 

In “Reality!!!!!” xtians are the violent extremists who react violently when their religion is subject to free-speech!.

In reality, not so much.

A new head on a baby Jesus statue is causing some to look twice in a Sudbury, Ont., churchyard.

The head — which went missing from the pearly white statue a year ago — has been replaced by a handmade terracotta sculpture created by a local artist.

Get that? Those violent Xtians are “looking twice”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what’s the problem with the new head?

not-fatwa-worthy

 

Imagine if that were Mohamed? Who would be more outraged, the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. or ‘moderate Muslims’?

Instead, most Christians have not even heard about it. I saw this a few days ago and I figured someone would mention it, but that story is it.

The priest’s comment is priceless.

“It really is shocking to the eyes because of the big contrast in colour,” the church’s priest Gérard Lajeunesse told CBC News.

Really? The color is why it’s shocking to the eyes? Not because you’ve replaced Jesus with Baal?

With the most blatantly unnecessary yet surprising comment ever in the history of ever.

“I wasn’t trained for this in seminary.”

You’d think they might have taught him the difference between Baal and Jesus in seminary. You’d be wrong apparently.

 

Let’s take a break from ‘Reality!!!!’and reality to look at some “REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

So queertext focuses on the “material, erotice realities of our bodies”?

It’s funny, when I was in HS we were told that letting the little head do the thinking for the big head was bad. In the glorious Now!, it’s required.

 

What did we learn today?

Not a damned thing except priests in northern Ontario do some good drugs.

 

 

What The Fuck?

WTF is wrong with this world?

The asshole who is currently wearing a pope-hat had a nice photo-op where he was all into helping the Christians being murdulated by our fine, Religion of Peace brothers in the Levant.

 

A Christian brother and sister from Syria felt blessed to have been among the dozen refugees selected to start a new life in Italy — but now say their savior, Pope Francis, abandoned them on a Greek island, …

Their dreams were shattered, though, when they were informed the following day that they would not be traveling to Rome. Instead, three Muslim families were taken.

Asked why they were all Muslim, Francis said there was something wrong with the papers of a Christian family on the list.

 

Yeah, the problem with their papers is that they’re Christian.

Now, I can accept (if not understand) most lefties hating Christians, but the fucking pope?

So in a clash of religions, the Pope is not on Jesus’ side.

Sorta funny, in an armageddon way.

I wish this wasn’t satire.

Just hours after the Justice Department contested the Supreme Court delay of a federal mandate for contraceptive insurance, a plaintiff’s attorney announced that the Little Sisters of the Poor would form a collective bargaining unit and seek an exemption from ObamaCare.

When I saw the puppy blender link I didn’t realize it was satire and I was never so proud of the Catholic Church.

Hopefully they see the link and realize that a good idea is a good idea.

Scott Ott, pissing off FrnakJ for 10 years.
