When I teach math I always tell students they need to know what they know. They always think that’s stupid.

Then I ask them 1/4+1/4 and get blank looks. I ask them 3/4+2/4 and get blank looks. I ask them .4+.75 and get blank looks.

Then I ask them what a quarter plus a quarter is. They all know  it’s a 1/2 dollar or $.50. I ask them 3 quarters plus 2 quarters, they know it’s 5 quarters or $1 and a quarter or $1.25. They also all know that 40 cents plus 75 cents is $1.15.

They didn’t know what they knew. If you’re in a car and ask someone how long it’ll take to get where you’re going they’ll look at the speedometer, see 60mph, look at how far, 60 miles, and say 1 hour. If you ask them the same question on a math test you’ll get 60 hours, 1/2 hour, 30 miles and 45mph as answers. True story.

Let’s see what we know that we don’t know we know!

 

Unknown politicians always do better than known politicians!

Stooksbury spent precisely $0 on his campaign and has never been seen in public. Jon Ossoff had the entire national Democratic Party pulling out the stops for him, and flooded Atlanta television with ten million dollars in advertising. Drastically improving on the Stooksbury numbers should be no dazzling feat.(Although, somewhat hilariously, Stooksbury actually got more total votes than Ossoff, 124,917 to Ossoff’s 124,893. Granted, special elections have lower turnout, but good grief.)”

Heh.

 

This one we all knew that we knew but our fine political and media betters are still pretending they didn’t know what we all knew.

The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS:

Yeah, that ain’t so much Blockbuster!!!!! as yawn, we all knew that. But wait, there’s still more!!!!!!! (we all knew)

No surprise there. What is shocking is the FBI’s apparent involvement in the effort to smear Trump with false rumors:

Wait, you mean Hillary’s Bitches were going after her opponents!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, we watched that exact thing happen last November, December, January and stopped talking about it in February because there were so many other lies the FBI was promulgating that old ones were pushed off the headlines.

 

Muslim nations think we’re nitwits and screw with us every chance they get! We all know that but we’re supposed to pretend not, because those nations have lots of oil which means they can afford lots of politicians and ‘journalists’.

A Libyan terror suspect imprisoned in the UK was put in charge of guarding David Cameron on an official visit to Tripoli in 2011, it emerged last night.

That’s the same as Iran constantly putting assholes involved in holding American hostages, making terror war and other murderously asshole actions in charge of negotiations with the west.

 

Let’s Common Sense and Wonder for a minute.

 

Lefties let their politics rule every aspect of their lives and feel that they can ignore every aspect of polite society in furtherance of their politics is something we all know but we’re supposed to ignore.

A southern California high school teacher who served as student body faculty adviser stepped down from that role after allegedly rigging student elections — and apparently against conservative candidates.
Principal Mick Wager emailed parents of students at Vista Murrieta High School on June 16 saying the company that handled the elections confirmed fraudulent votes altered the outcomes of the races for 2019 class president, 2019 secretary and 2018 class president, the Press-Enterprise said.

Fire that asshole. Never allow her in any position of authority ever. Take away her ant farm.

 

Is Vietnam run by less murderously commie dictators?

I knew they were a commie dictatorship but, since they murdered everybody they thought by be against them long ago, I have to wonder if they might have become less murderous.

A Vietnamese dissident blogger with dual French citizenship arrived in Paris on Sunday after he was stripped of his birth nationality by authorities in the one-party state and deported.
Former mathematics lecturer Pham Minh Hoang was put on a plane to Paris late Saturday, weeks after his Vietnamese citizenship was revoked — a rare move that has sparked outrage among critics of the communist government who accuse it of quashing dissent by any means available.

Kicking him out is a lot nicer than actions murderous commie dictatorships usually employ. I mean, they’re not imprisoning him as a mobile “organ-donor” farm or working him to death in some “work-camp” or just putting a bullet in his head and dumping him on his front stoop for his kids to find in the morning on their way to school.

Interesting.

 

Something we all knew but we’re supposed to pretend we don’t, Prince Charles is an ignorant fool!

Robert Colvile’s excellent article on Prince Charles’s misunderstanding of the causes of African poverty provides a good opportunity to take a closer look at Africa’s economic history.

African poverty was not caused by colonialism, capitalism or free trade

Yeah, Africa’s problems stem from many things.

I’d say one of the biggest was creating countries full of enemies. Rwanda is the most extreme example of that, but look at Kenya. One tribe is in charge of the army, another is in charge of the air force. The Masai, who were the baddest asses around before the Europeans showed up, are out of power and treated poorly. The rest of the tribes hate them and have hated them for centuries.

Another cause is that we give $billions to countries that go to the rulers who use it to buy palaces, Mercedes and tanks, not wells or adequate roads or power distribution.  Vicious, murderous warlords masquerading as gov’ts are what keeps Africa down along with cynical assholes who pay them off to get at the natural resources like diamonds, gold and all the other things Africa has in abundance. It’s cheaper to buy an African warlord than to do the same thing in Europe or the Americas or even Asia in many cases.

 

This one bothers me. We all know that Che was a horrible racist and he was Fidel’s buddy, but everybody pretends Cuba is not very racist as well as murderously commie.

Castrogonia is one of the most profoundly racist countries on earth, but rarely does this issue surface in the world’s press.

According to Castro regime census figures, somewhere around 60 percent of Cubans today self-identify as “white.”  But that percentage is probably much lower.  The discrepancy between facts and the Castro census is widely acknowledged…

So, the real truth is the majority of Cubans today are blacks or mulattoes.  Yet, despite the high percentage of Afro-Cubans in the population, nearly all of the top posts in Cuba’s oligarchy and in the Castro economic monopoly are held by whites.

A disproportionate number of Afro-Cubans live in the most dilapidated neighborhoods and in the worst housing…

A racist comment often used by Castro oligarchs to describe any machinery that works well is: “esto debe haberlo inventado un blanco.” (This must have been invented by a white person)

 

That’s one of the reasons I refuse to watch Danny Glover movies. Not only did he make $millions in movies glorifying guns as he’s all “Only the gov’t should have guns!”, he thinks Fidel, whose gov’t uses their monopoly on guns to be murderously commie, is a good guy. Fidel is a murderously horrible racist and fucking Glover acts as though I’m a racist.

I can take all the idiocy from every other Hollywood idiot, but Glover goes above and beyond the usual idiocy to agitate for a man who would kill him without a qualm or second thought if Glover were a resident of Cuba. Instead, he lives a life-style that 99.9999999999999999% of every human who ever lived could not even understand. Augustus called and said, “I wish I could live like Glover!”

 

Since China owns much of our Democratic media/entertainment political complex, we have to pretend that we don’t know that China is an empire that wants to expand. They do that by bribing local gov’ts (Like Obama’s for instance) to move in their own people and that pisses off Teh Peepul affected.

Pakistan has deployed a 15,000-strong military force to protect Chinese nationals working on energy and infrastructure projects in the country, President Mamnoon Hussain said on Sunday, after the abduction of a Chinese couple raised safety concerns.

China sends people all over the place to change the ethnography, much as Muslims are doing in Europe. China’s been doing it in Tibet and in the Vladivostok area most notably, but they’re also doing it in Panama and places in Africa. What happens when China sends a few million people to a country of 10 million? China will not even notice the loss but places like Panama are swamped.

 

Even though all of our fine political, social, moral and intellectual betters pretend otherwise, a good guy with a gun often beats a bad guy with a gun.

 

There’s a difference between some thug with a gun and someone who’s thought about what it means and is mentally prepared.

 

This one doesn’t fit, it’s what we all wish we could see.

Department of Veterans Affairs Phone Outreach Assistance Specialist Janice Edlers has been on hold with Comcast since 10 a.m., sources report.

“This is not just incredibly frustrating, it’s disrespectful and demoralizing,” said Edlers, who routinely leaves her phone off the hook in her cubicle in a Department of Veterans Affairs Call Center while she makes coffee, gets a snack, or texts with her boyfriend.

 

It would be better if it was an Obamacare hotline, but we all know our fine governmental betters don’t have to deal with that shit.

Okay, I’m done Comeying

Comeytose State
by Mark Steyn
Steyn on America
June 10, 2017
Jim Comey points the finger

Readers have demanded to know what I think of the James Comey hearing. In the words of Daffy Duck, shoot me now.

You and me both Mark Steyn, you and me both.

 

Okay, now I’m done Comeying. I really don’t want to start Muelling.

“Look at what Comey said. Comey said ‘I deliberately leaked through an intermediary to create this counsel. And it happens to be one of his closest friends.

Then look at who Mueller’s starting to hire. These are people who frankly look to me like they are setting up to go after Trump. They’ve … by the way, these are people who’ve been reprimanded for hiding from the defense information in two major cases.

I think this is going to be a witch hunt. I think that Comey, by his own testimony, tainted this particular process.”

As is transparently apparent, his job is to figure out some way to get Trump impeached. You can tell by who is not against this, like Karl, I’m Important!!! Not Like Those Asshole Tea Partiers!!!!, Rove.

All I can say is that our fine political, social, moral and intellectual betters will not like what happens after Trump if they do that.

 

Unimportant people are unimportant.

Local victims of bombings by the terror group FALN watched in disgust Sunday as one of the murderous organization’s former leaders led Manhattan’s Puerto Rican Day Parade — riding out in front as the guest of honor with his fist thrust defiantly in the air.

“It’s repulsive, I’m sick to my stomach,” said retired NYPD Detective Tony Senft, 70, who lost an eye while diffusing one of the group’s bombs at a Manhattan courthouse in 1982.

… I’m Italian, but [late Mafia don] John Gotti doesn’t represent me,”…

That’s what’s made the middle east so wonderful, people liking their own terrorists. All terrorists are bad.

 

Here are some lies by the Never Trumpers at the NY Post.

The sensitive information, according to Monday’s New York Times report, revealed that top Israeli cyberoperators about six months ago had penetrated a group of ISIS bombmakers in Syria who were working on explosives that would pass airport X-ray machines and other screenings.

Passing along anonymous lying lies by the NY Times? Really? Never Trumpers are really pissing me off.

I’m about done with the Post. I used to read 4 or 5 papers a day, 3 NY Papers, the Wash Post and I’d skim some others, now I’m down to the NY Post. Soon, I’ll be done with them. I can get lies watching TV news, why read them too?

 

We need to see a bunch of dead Mexican drug cartel assholes.

At about 11 p.m. Friday, a motorist found the off-duty agent “on the side of the road” in Doña Ana County, New Mexico…

The document does specifically identify that a Border Patrol agent was kidnapped and assaulted,” according to Breitbart Texas. “The document also asserts that the FBI in El Paso, Texas, is leading the investigation.”

More

The agent suffered multiple, serious injuries to his head, chest and hands. Emergency Medical Services transported the agent to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for his wounds.

I want to see scattered body parts. Lots of scattered body parts. And burned compounds.

Too bad our newsmedia can’t be assed to cover this, they’re on the side of whoever is against America. For those wondering, that’s Obama’s legacy. Anti-American hate normalized by our fine betters.

 

Okay, this makes me feel a little better.

There has been an influx of headline-grabbing legislation during the first two special sessions at the Legislature this year, but none of it has been about taxes or spending.

Instead, some lawmakers have proposed privatizing The Evergreen State College, moving Washington toward a single-payer health care system and banning people from wearing masks and hoods at protests.

None of those bills are likely to pass.

It’s not just the national GOP throwing fish at me, we have Washington St pols throwing stinky fish at their voters.

It’s even worse in Washington state.

In other words, lawmakers and consultants said Hail Mary legislation could have value by sparking broader conversations about an issue of interest or striking a chord with a politician’s base or swing voters.

They’re admitting they’re throwing fish instead of doing anything useful.

 

Uh-oh, this guy had better hope there’s a Scarlet Pimpernel around

A biology and agriculture professor says he’s the first — and so far the only — faculty member at The Evergreen State College to publicly come out in support of Bret Weinstein, the professor whose comments enflamed tensions over racism at the Olympia campus.

Otherwise La Terreur is going to get him. Do the Evergreen fascists have guillotines yet?

 

Just a little Totally Unexpected!!!!! surprise

The Communist Party’s anti-graft watchdog, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, said in a statement on Monday that Inner Mongolia and Jilin had cooked some of their figures. But the CCDI did not elaborate on the scope or time span of the falsification.

I can help with that last part, it’s been every figure they’ve ever produced and the scope is vast. That’s what commies do.

Inner Mongolia, a major source of coal, reported a 7.2 per cent rise in its gross domestic product last year, while Jilin grew 6.9 per cent. Both beat the national average of 6.7 per cent last year.

Wait, you mean commies lie about economic shit? No! Why, next you’ll tell me the whole, expanding at nearly 7% is a bunch of lies!?!?!?!?!

 

An interesting question

Here’s what they mean.

If you sadly live in New Jersey, New York, Maryland or Massachusetts and actually like firearms, your list of legal AR-15s can probably fit on the bar napkin you drink your sorrows away on. OK, that is slightly over the top, but legal ones are few and far between. Ruger is adding to that list with a new AR-556 with a MonsterMan grip.

Some notable features, or modifications depending on how you look at it, that make it legal in the aforementioned states are:

Threaded Barrel (1/2″ x 28 TPI) w/ Thread Protector [No Flash Hider or Muzzle Device]
Fixed A2 Stock [No Scary Collapsible Stock]
10-Round Magazine [None of that High-Cap Nonsense]
MonsterMan Grip [It Ain’t a Pistol Grip If Your Hand Can’t Go All the Way Around]

You know that pisses off the assholes who passed the stupid laws and it gets guns to those whose pols are trying to disarm them.

I’m fer it just for the pissing off gun-grabbing assholes.

The worst part is that nobody will notice that they’re only a few, cosmetic, changes to make it legal. In other words, the law is all about stupidity and uselessness. You know, typical anti-gun bullshit.

 

This hasn’t fit anywhere, so I’m putting this here.

When I worked for the Feds, each year they had a deal where you could designate charities of your choice to have money taken from your check, before taxes.

I’d always look at the booklet for some that involved kids of military or police or injured cops or military and I’d look at the percentage that went to charity and what went to administration. I’d only give money to charities with less than 10% administration costs, preferably <5%. That’s why I try to always put my change into the Ronald McDonald House box at the McD’s drive in. Kago doesn’t mind, he doesn’t like kids but he does like McD’s cheeseburgers.

The United Way was ridiculous, with some offices paying 90% or more to administrators, the Red Cross wasn’t far behind.

I really don’t like people who do well by doing good. I refuse to pay for your self-esteem/feeling superior boost.

At the TANSTAAFL Bar and Grill! All Week!

And if you believe that, you’re gonna love the rest of the post!

Let’s start with a story that has it all, lying Clintonistas, idiotic journalists who seem to not understand the simplest math while accepting whatever lies said Clintonista told them! There’s probably more, but let’s start with that.

We saw some stories about the HUGE!!!!!!!!! DROP!!!!!!!!!! in murders in Chicago.

The good news coming out of Chicago also serves as a sad reminder of just how bad the city’s violence is: 239 people were murdered as of May 31, according to Chicago Police. That is down slightly from 247 during the same period last year.

They were all excited, but really, 8 fewer people out of 247? That’s……ummmmm…carry the calculator key…read the number off the SCCop blog that I linked…. 3%!

Why, if they keep that up they’ll have that whole murder thing whipped in about…never.

Yeah, innumeracy is rampant amongst our fine, journalistic and intellectual betters, but parroting lies of Clintonistas is more their specialty.

SCCop blog in italics

Fox News asks the obvious question (and misreports a bunch more)

Emanuel has made efforts to stop crime. He recently added 1,000 police officers to the force that will start working overtime.

The city has also expanded its gunshot-detection technology and Emanuel has lobbied with the police superintendent for a new bill that will crack down on repeat gun offenders.

Still, in the month of May, the city averaged two murders and 10 shootings a day, leaving those who’ve lost a loved one wondering if stopping crime is at the top of the mayor’s priority list.
And we reply:

Rahm didn’t “add” 1,000 – he’s hasn’t hired enough to keep up with retirements yet. He’s hiring back exhausted coppers to do scarecrow policing.

The Shotspotter technology is still a bit buggy according to reports from 007 and 011. It’s missing a rather high percentage of shootings, so police aren’t responding near fast enough.

Stopping crime was never on Rahm’s “priority list.” Rahm’s priority is getting re-elected. If crime happens to drop, that’s just a bonus. If not, he’s got Special Ed to fall on his sword.

 

Yup. I will say that, aside from police chiefs praising it but never saying exactly which crime it helped with, the only uses Shotspotter apparently has for law enforcement is bugging street corners.

The exchange, which was used in court, was recorded by ShotSpotter, a gunshot detection system that has been installed in over 90 cities across the country.

Welcome to the 21st century!

 

Some days I really have a problem trying to keep from believing I’m the star of the Veeshir Show!

A criminal complaint was filed in the Southern District of Georgia today charging Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor from Augusta, Georgia, with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet, in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 793(e).

Now first, I saw people checked and found out she was a lefty. Did anybody really need to check to know that Reality Winning was a lefty? I bet she changed her name in November or December of 2012 or 2008. Just a hunch.

Second, Reality Winning? Seriously? You’re just fucking with me now. No. Reality Fucking Winning? Why not just name her, “Funn E. N. Endie” or “Let’s Fuck With Veeshir”?

Assholes.

 

1 down/a shitload to go!

The acting U.S. ambassador to China resigned on Monday to protest President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.

Good riddance. Let’s get all the global warmmongers out of our gov’t.

I do find it hilarious that our ambassador to the biggest polluter on the planet, who has no obligations for decades under this particular Diet of Worms, is OUTRAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if the murderous commie dictators in China bribed him with Yen or good, old US dollars. Probably some hookers too. It’s not all the important, just curious.

 

Speaking of bribes, another in a long series.

Tesla would be able to quadruple its New York network of stores under a bill introduced in Albany, the company said Monday…

The state legislature, under pressure from a politically powerful car dealership group, passed a law in 2014 that limited Tesla’s in-state footprint to five stores.

See? They speak about pols being bribed, politically powerful in NY means Deep Pockets, to favor one group of business over another business and they don’t even highlight the corruption and the unbelievable overreach that is a legislature telling a business how many outlets they can open.

Is that legal? I mean, would it be legal if we still had a rule of law?

A Tesla executive said, “We plan to invest further in sales infrastructure in New York State.”

By “sales infrastructure” I can only assume he means some politicians.

Do you know what that means? Our..Your tax-dollars are going to bribing NY pols! There’s a symmetry there, but it’s very obamanian.

 

So we all saw the video of CNN setting up a protest. Now, they’re a Serious News Agency so they had to respond to Those Serious Allegations!

CNN International responded to the claims that they staged the protest, writing, “This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs. CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so.”

Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?

Seriously, the only people who would accept that jackassery are those who haven’t seen the video.

So now you have no excuse.

Well, you wouldn’t if this was a blog where people clicked things.

 

As we’re in the 5th gripping month of “We Hate President Trump” by our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters, it’s a good thing there’s nothing important going on that we need to worry about!

Increasingly embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro threatened “war” Sunday afternoon with those who do not support his plans for a National Constituent Assembly, which will ditch the present Constitution without a popular vote…

saying Cuban Armed Revolutionary Forces (MINFAR) are sending “a small contingent of military doctors” to Venezuela. The size of the contingent is not specified, but Cuba is believed to have between 20,000 to 30,000 “cooperation workers” in the area of health, agriculture and competitive sports already in country, all of which have some degree of military training.

Castro used to send “cooperation workers” to Africa all the time. Russia used them as “plausible deniability” troops.

So it’s just a socialist getting help from a murderous commie so Venezuela will not get worse due to socialism! It’ll be communism! Obama’s attempt at undoing our work in the Cold War is showing results! And our fine media betters can’t be assed to notice it.

Cuz they’re hoping we’ll try Communism Right in America.

 

Speaking of which, imadenier shows us three things with his comment

cars in london being used for terror, a hammer used today in france to attack police… what about car control and hammer control …

His shift key obviously doesn’t work, he’s paying attention to lefties but doesn’t read the posts.

, and a ban on immediate vehicle rentals, requiring renters to wait two hours and for rental firms to run checks on them with the police.

Makes wonder if he’s one of the cobs who doesn’t want to post but does want to comment.

As imadenier (who I keep chauvenistically calling “he”) obviously knows, they don’t want terrorist control, they want people control.

I really do not get it. Stopping terrorist attacks does not seem to be a priority for EUnuchs, they keep doing stuff that encourages terrorist attacks, they also keep trying to get more control over their subjects and not doing what would stop terrorist attacks. The real hard stuff like walking around London looking for ISIS flags and recruiters or people carrying machetes and heads.

 

I’m not sure if this is related or not.

FBI agents and Department of Justice prosecutors raided a home possibly linked to former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in Dearborn, Michigan last week.

The home on Jonathon Street is reportedly owned by a subsidiary of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs – an Abedin family business that employs Huma’s brother and sister. Huma had worked for the company in the past.

Agents only said that the raid was “a matter of national security,” and that Detroit FBI is working with agents on a case from “another state…

On the one hand, Huma hangs out with Hillary so she’s obviously very corrupt. On the other, she’s also a Friend of the Muslim Brotherhood.

So that could be either terror or corruption related. Although it would be pretty funny if it was both.

 

Comey refuses to answer questions from the Senate.

Former FBI director James Comey is formally refusing to answer questions submitted to him by a bipartisan group of senators, suggesting he no longer must do so as a private citizen.

…submitted to him by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and the committee’s ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein after Comey’s final testimony as FBI director to the panel last month.

What the fucking fuck? Do private citizens get to tell the Senate to fuck off? To their faces I mean. That fucking lying sack of innuendo was the head of the FBI, if the fucking Senate has questions for him he has to fucking answer them.

I know, we don’t have a rule of law. I told you, I like to pretend we do.

Here are the questions.  I can see why he won’t answer them. This first one is surprisingly good (coming from the Senate!)

Did you discuss with anyone outside of the Justice Department any interactions you had
with President Trump or President Obama regarding either the investigations of Trump
associates’ alleged connections with Russia or the Clinton email investigation? (Yes, V)

If so, with whom did you discuss those interactions, ((Lynch and Obama V)

when (when Obama was POTUS V),

and why?  ( To get my instructions from Lynch to make sure that Hillary gets cleared and Obama to make sure I keep the Russia Hacked The Election lies going for as long as possible. V)

 

It wouldn’t take that long to answer all the questions, but if he did so truthfully it could get sticky, and indicted, while coming up with lies consistent with previous lies would be a pain in the ass.

So better for him to just tell the Senate for Fuck Off. While I applaud the sentiment, I deplore the reason.

This time.

 

I wonder what would happen if this happened here.

Ontario, Canada passed a law that allows government to intervene in family life if parents of children with gender identity issues don’t accept their kids’ “gender expression,” Lifesite News reports.
Bill 89 — also knows as The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017 — was overwhelmingly passed in Ontario with a 63 to 23 vote.

If it did happen, I’d suggest any parents make sure they have a jury full of parents for their murder trial. Unless they’re in Berkeley. Then they’re boned.

But why would you be in Berkeley if you’re not into the whole, “My 5 year old is a black woman trapped in a white boy’s body!” thing?

 

Evergreen is staying evergreen!

Update:

Apparently, the situation at Evergreen has not improved.

Armed with baseball bats, students are channelling the radical ethos of Eighties pop combo Haysi Fantayzee.

Update 2:

And here’s a first-hand account of the Evergreen Gender Studies Massive in action:

Last Thursday, Nolan and his friends were accosted again by “the mob.” He was on his way to the bus to get dinner, and a group of about 20 people, one of them holding a bat, began following them. Many of the same characters from the first encounter were present at the second one. Nolan said it appeared like the group was waiting for him outside his dorm room, like they knew where he lived. “They were all a bunch of walking stereotypes,” he said. “It’s like Tumblr was attacking me.”

They’re all about the caring, you see.

Tolerant and mostly-peaceful!

The latest example to surface features Evergreen State “video and performance art” professor Naima Lowe castigating several (white) colleagues about supporting student activists and their “race-based equity reforms.”

“YOU are the motherfuckers that we’re pushing against! You can’t see your way outta your own ass!” Lowe yells at her peers.

“So don’t TALK to me about what YOU need.”

That’s a ‘professor’ talking to other ‘prof’s. I have to say, I appreciate all their efforts. It’s been mostly stupid and endy but Evergreen has a been a ray of hilarity.

 

I know this is a plea for attention, but what the hell.

Florentin Felix Morin, a French PhD student who studied at the University of Arizona in the spring 2017 semester,

So embarrasing

“For a while, if someone was asking me how I ‘identified,’ I would joke about being a hippopotamus trapped in a human’s body,” says Morin, a transgender man, “later, a human trapped in a hippopotamus’ body, until my humorous ‘truth’ solidified and I began announcing myself as an old butch hippo dyke trapped in a young human faggy transboy’s body.”

So…he’s open to fat chicks?

Morin is attempting to illuminate the concepts of identity, representation and what he calls the “system of obligations” that accompanies being transgender. Challenging the idea that “trans” is an “emancipatory term,” Morin asks, “Can its grip be loosened by the producing of other, maybe less realistic truths? A first view on my animal alter ego would be that it is an attempt to do so: an act of language, a verbal construction that I articulate in protest of a definition of myself as fully contained and explained by the framework of ‘transgender.’”

And that right there is a public service. I mean, I couldn’t have made fun of the whole transgender thing any better! Most of the doesn’t really make any sense, but I think that’s the point.

Bravo Hippo Dyke Dude!

 

As lefties are screeching about losing shoreline, here we see the truth!

A massive landslide that engulfed Central California’s Highway 1 has added 13 acres to the coastline.

Between that and the shoreline that hasn’t disappeared because it was all stupidity and lies, that makes like 50 trillion acres saved or created!
Are we good or what?

I’ve seen people making fun of this saying they need a space in there.

I’d say it’s dual use.

 

When I saw this article my first thought was, “aliceaitch!”

A naked yoga enthusiast is on the loose in Colorado, cops report.

And when I saw the picture?

That settled it.

We have Rule 30 for a reason.

As we boggle at dueling realities, listen to the Soothing Sounds of Social Justice

Via Zilla, who posts less than I do and probably has more readers and surely more commenters. I’d take it personally but I have a low opinion of people.

I had a bunch of these from yesterday but everybody’s posted some of them. Like the Evergreen deal that is lefties freaking out over people noticing their previous freaking out.

Oh well, let’s see if I can salvage any others.

 

More Anonymous Sources Telling Us What Trump Says When They’re Not In The Room!!!!!! The Gold Standard Of Journalism!

 

Man, this NYT piece has enough juicy morsels to satisfy the most Trump-loving nationalist or the most Trump-hating Democrat. Their nexus: Contempt for Prince Jared, who’s suddenly out of favor within the inner circle. And not just because of his Russia follies.

He can’t be fired, of course, as he’s part of the family. The only solution is to exile him and have Ivanka unite the continent by marrying Justin Trudeau.

Gold is yellow after all.

Dougm had the Mattis vid from yesterday and adds this vid with this Harris Faulkner question

If it is in fact true that Jared Kurchner (tried to set up a back channel)… wouldn’t that signify that there is no collusion? Why would you need a back-channel if you already have collusion?

She’s one of the last real journalists in this world. I’m still pissed off for her that she has to say, “Megan McCain, what do you think?” at least once a day. That’s just cruel.

 

You have to love people like this.

But Republicans in the age of Trump have sadly moved away from morality as a viable concept.

Yes, Gianforte’s assault is a glaring display of toxic masculinity in an environment made particularly toxic by the man in the White House and his media bullying

Wait, no you don’t. You should point, laugh and shun them.

We’ve been taking shit from you and your favored groups for 10 years now Mr Blow, you might want to ask yourself why much of America shrugged and some even chuckled when they heard a GOP candidate body-slammed a ‘journalist’. You really should ask yourself that question. And then maybe tone down all the cheerleading for anti-fa thuggles.

 

Trump’s trolling China now.

That’s funny. “Your bitch is making you their bitch but it’s not your fault you’re all weak and shit.”

 

When I first saw this I thought Putin would be saying, “Hey! That’s my schtick!”

Mystery as two North Koreans are found dead in the same Moscow hotel after BOTH suffering ‘acute heart failure’ as two more are rushed to hospital

But then I started to wonder if Putin did it. I doubt we’ll ever know who did it.

There’s a lot of shit going on between Russia, China and the Norks that we have now idea of. It’s hard for them to work together since Russia and China have never been friendly and the Chinese can use Nork craziness for their plausible deniability against Putin just as well as us.

 

A question that appears fairly obvious to me. And fucking annoying.

What Happens After ISIS Goes Underground

A little history, ISIS branched off from al Quaeda and became a country. They are a strong horse even as we’re beating their asses.

So what happens is that ISIS starts doing what al Quaeda used to do, what ISIS is doing better (worse) than al Quaeda ever did. They’re getting crazy people all over the world to blow up their part of the world and any nearby infidels or insufficiently similar Muslims.

This should go without saying, but it’s all Trump’s fault because of his hateful rhetoric.

 

In Breaking Bombshell News!!!!!!!!!!

The U.S. government is expanding a cybersecurity program that scans Internet traffic headed into and out of defense contractors to include far more of the country’s private, civilian-run infrastructure.

As a result, more private sector employees than ever before, including those at big banks, utilities and key transportation companies, will have their emails and Web surfing scanned as a precaution against cyber attacks.

Oh wait, that was from March, 2013.

Well this is Breaking Bombshell News!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had the Senate Intelligence Committee been permitted to use pseudonyms for the central characters in its report, as all previous congressional studies of intelligence failures, including the widely heralded Church Committee report in 1975, have done, it might not have taken a painstaking, and still somewhat cryptic, investigation after the fact in order for the American public to hold this senior official accountable. Many people who have worked with her over the years expressed shock to NBC that she has been entrusted with so much power. A former intelligence officer who worked directly with her is quoted by NBC, on background, as saying that she bears so much responsibility for so many intelligence failures that “she should be put on trial and put in jail for what she has done.”

Instead, however, she has been promoted to the rank of a general in the military, most recently working as the head of the C.I.A.’s global-jihad unit.

Oh wait, that was December 2014.

This one, This One is Breaking Bombshell News!!!!!!!!!!

A federal judge on Monday ruled that the government’s collection of data on all U.S. phone calls is likely unconstitutional, comparing the National Security Agency (NSA) program to George Orwell’s 1984.

Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., granted a request from conservative activist Larry Klayman to block the NSA’s phone data collection

Oh wait, that’s from December, 2013 and since it was a judge telling Obama what to do, it meant absolutely nothing.

 

Isn’t there any Bombshell Breaking News!!!!!!!!!! that’s not old, lies and/or from anonymous sources?

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liberals Are Shocked That We’re Starting To Hate Them Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We conservatives have been warning for a long time that liberals are not going to like it when everyone plays by the new rules, and – surprise! – they don’t. But guess what? Most of us don’t like the new rules either. Yet it’s ridiculous to expect human beings to remain in perpetual denial about the situation they face, and to forever live under a double standard that results in their faces getting pressed into the dirt.

The hypocrisy has become intolerable, and we have stopped tolerating it. This is just the beginning of the reaction, and – make no mistake – this entire situation is a bad thing. Our society is making choices that can lead only to ruin (and my new novel describing the consequences just dropped).

But we’re the Washington Generals in the long-running movie, Their Reality.

We’re supposed to oppose them and then run away when they bang their sippy cups extra hard. It’s as if we haven’t read the script!

We’ve warned them and warned them but they didn’t pay attention. They were too busy trying to hide violence from lefties while trying to blame their violence on The Right! Like the violence at Trump Rallies.

 

In I  NY news, Safe Act Too!! This Time It’s Even Saferer!!

The prohibition would apply to pistols or revolvers manufactured twelve or more months after the effective date of the bill. Design features could include the capacity to adjust the trigger resistance of the gun to at least a ten pound pull, the capacity to alter the firing mechanism so- that an average five year old child’s hand would be too small to operate the gun, or the capacity to require a series of multiple motions in order to fire the gun.

Why 10 lbs? Because it’s Science!!!!!!!!!!! How big is an “average five year old child’s hand”? Oh, we’ll let the lawyers figure that one out! And if you’re a gun maker with deep pockets, I’m gonna guess your dimensions for an average five year old child’s hand will vary somewhat from a cash-strapped NY jurisdiction’s dimensions.

What does “series of multiple motions” mean? Again, we’ll let lawyers siphon money off of gun makers….figure that out!

Now, it’s never smart to assume any brains by any NY pol, beyond the cunning required to convince a little old lady that she needs to fix her gutters and if she gives you $5k today, you’ll take care of it tomorrow, but is this a way to make it so nobody can sell guns in NY?

California and Mass guns are tough enough, having to figure out what they mean and then make them for one, niche market, well, that’s just stupid.

And of course the police will be exempt. Because in Dem fiefs their serfs deserve fewer rights.

 

Nothing major, just lefty eating lefty at lefty event.

Filmmaker Sofia Coppola has become the first women since 1961 to win Cannes Film Festival’s Directing Prize.

You would have thought Coppola’s award- for her female-centric remake of 1971 civil war drama The Beguiled which starred Clint Eastwood- would generate widespread applause on social media given the fact she is an outspoken feminist and all the attention paid to the perceived under-representation of women directors at Cannes in recent years.

You might think that, but today’s left isn’t really known for making any sort of sense. Even by their own rules.

 

The plot of the movie-a wounded Union soldier who takes refuge an all-female Southern boarding school during the Civil War- doesn’t immediately evoke an aura of white privilege.

I hate to break it to you HeatStreet dude, but the Civil War is the definition of White Privilege. Even the Union Soldiers. Even the Union Soldiers who signed up exclusively to fight slavery. Geez, it’s as if he doesn’t read the NY Times or watch CNN.

Sofia Coppola’s new movie feels like she was just like “how can I possibly fit the largest number of skinny blond white women in this?”

Most importantly, it wasn’t R rated, so it’s probably not worth watching. They’re  fully clothed, skinny blond white women. Not a boob or tasteful lezbo scene anywhere.

Can’t we judge people by the content of their character instead of the color of their skin?

I know, that’s all racist and shit. But I’m kind of a recidivist.

I do look forward to the porn version of it. I wonder what they’ll call it, the Defiled maybe?

 

imadenier wished for a kaganer gnome, not realizing that, since gnomes have jumped the sharks, there is a gnome for every occasion.

I’m a little unsure if I should have helped him.

I have to wonder if he lives near this poor woman

For Martha Horne, the rotund faces and pointy red hats of her cherished garden gnomes always brought a smile.

The Leduc grandmother was heartbroken when, one stormy night last week, three of the plump dwarves were stolen from her front lawn.

It doesn’t say if she had any kaganer, Star Trek or Pulp Fiction gnomes, but I still wonder.

I will say it’s funny how often rule 34 wins.

Garden Gnome Gangbang was actually the least objectionable gnome porn I could find. Amazon even has at least one gnome sticking Little Pointy out.

Semi-related,

news broke on Monday that Pornhub is reporting a rise in searches for fidget spinner-related erotica on its website,

What if you meet yourself from an alternate universe and he doesn’t have a goatee? Does that mean you’re the evil one?

The reason I ask is because I think I’m in an alternate universe where irony holds no sway.

Hillary’s commencement speech

We were asking urgent questions about whether women, people of color, religious minorities, immigrants would ever be treated with dignity and respect. And by the way, we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice. After firing the person running the investigation into him at the department of justice.

And nobody in the crowd stood up and asked her if she had brain damage. Seriously, put, “perjury which was” before “obstruction of justice” and that’s Bill’s POTUSy. Of course, we weren’t asking questions about whether women would be treated with dignity and respect, we were making fun of women’s looks and calling them lying trailer trash.

 

This journolister doesn’t mention crying, I figure it’s just to be assumed.

Boehner said Trump “did what he could” with healthcare, but never subscribed to the idea of ‘repeal, then replace.’ Instead he should have worked to ‘repair’ Obamacare.

“Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” said Boehner. “He’s still learning how to be president.”

The only thing Trump’s done domestically is undo a bunch of Obama’s law-breaking/law-making and try to get Congress to do something useful. So not so much a disaster as, “A best case scenario” because we all knew Congress was not going to do anything useful but we hoped Trump might.

Notice Boehner is saying Trump should “repair” Obamacare, what I have been saying Congress really wanted to do instead of the repeal we want and they claimed to want.

 

This is unexpected.

Heard any good Mike Flynn jokes lately?

How about this one from “Morning Joe,” this week? “When it comes to legal issues, he’s like Charmin. You just keep squeezing.” Maybe you’ve seen Stephen Colbert’s segmentfrom February about Trump’s former national security adviser: “It’s funny ’cause it’s treason.”…

…If there truly was treason, it’s no joking matter. If there was not, then this man’s name is being tarnished unfairly. Ha. Ha…

None of this would be happening without some very dirty business from the national security state. It’s a two-pronged campaign. First there are the whispers. Anonymous officials …

The second and more insidious element here is the innuendo. Yates never says Flynn was a spy for Russia. … she told Lizza, Flynn was “compromised by the Russians.” This sounds far more sinister than…

…dropped by former CIA director John Brennan. …. “Frequently, people who go along a treasonous path do not know they are on a treasonous path until it is too late,” he warned.

And some people, like Brennan, are no doubt fully aware of the treasonous path they’re treading. Cuz they didn’t like who won the last election and the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is above the law.

Contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian individuals “raised questions in my mind about whether Russia was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals.” This cooperation could be “witting” or “unwitting,” he cautioned.

So…Hillary is let off because she didn’t mean to break the law while Flynn’s actions “raised questions” but were possibly (read: probably) ‘unwitting’. We know who our fine intelligence betters are going after.

Now, it’s entirely possible that the government will charge Flynn and other Trump associates with high crimes. This would be a political disaster for the president. But at least if the government does present such charges, Flynn will have the opportunity to defend himself. In the interim, if that day ever comes, Flynn must follow the advice of his lawyers and keep quiet.

Only the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCFoxnewsetc. will charge and convict him. That’s the point. That’s why Comey Is Going To Testify!!!!! not right away. But Real Soon!!!!!!! So they can keep trying to weaken the man they hate. And if America gets screwed over that? Well that’s our fault for voting for that fascist!

This is not how it’s supposed to work. Normally if a U.S. official is suspected of treason, the government collects evidence before hinting to the public what it might be seeking evidence about.

Bloomberg view wrote that, not me. No, really. Click the link if you don’t believe me.

 

Let’s Disaster!

First, Trump’s Disastrous Budget Of Death!

A provision included in the Justice Department’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget seeks to …

require law enforcement to comply with federal immigration detainers…

Analysts had earlier said all federal dollars sent to state and local jurisdictions, ranging from health to community development grants, could be at risk under the order.

Under the budget proposal, all Justice Department and Homeland Security Department grants would be at risk if jurisdictions failed to comply with the new expanded version of Section 1373.

The nerve of him! Doesn’t he know that’s unConstitutional? Doesn’t he also know there’s no way the GOP is going to vote for that? Doesn’t he know that’s only good to show his political opponents (everybody in politics) are lying sacks of pandering?
I’d say the answers are, “He knows some judge will say so. He’d fight it but it won’t come to that because…”, “Yes” and “That’s the point!”, respectively.

 

Not so much “disaster” as “awesome“,

A U.S. warship carried out a “maneuvering drill” when it sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea, to show Beijing it was not entitled to a territorial sea around it, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

The operation near Mischief Reef on Thursday, Pacific time, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals over which China has disputes with its neighbors,

You need to let them know you won’t back down, I do wish we’d heard about this some other way though.

On Thursday, the destroyer USS Dewey conducted a “man overboard” exercise, specifically to show that its passage within 12 nautical miles was not innocent passage, U.S. officials said.

“USS Dewey engaged in normal operations by conducting a maneuvering drill inside 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef,” one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“The ship’s actions demonstrated that Mischief Reef is not entitled to its own territorial sea regardless of whether an artificial island has been built on top of it.”

Stop anonymously fucking leaking you assholes. If that was an ‘authorized leak’, they need to stop those for a while. We have to get gov’t assholes under control.

Related.

It comes ahead of a visit to Singapore next week by U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to discuss security with regional counterparts.

Mattis is not easily intimidated. I am a little surprised, I figured Trump would send Tillerson first, then Mattis. The carrot and the bludgeon in other words.

Beijing said two Chinese guided-missile warships had warned the U.S. vessel to leave the waters and that it had lodged “stern representations” with the United States.

I’d bet their guided missile warships! probably had the same effect on their course I had and I’m sure the “stern representations” were treated with all the respect they were due.

 

Now, I’m not a financial guy, what I know about economics would fit on one page. And mostly be wrong. The one thing I do know is, “Don’t trust socialists.

Fidelity Investments may support shareholder proxy proposals calling on companies to report on sustainability matters this year, a major shift by the Boston asset manager as climate activists gain more traction at large US corporations.

While Fidelity will generally vote as company managers recommend on environmental or social issues, “Fidelity may support shareholder proposals calling for reports on sustainability, renewable energy and environmental impact issues,” states a new section of its proxy voting guidelines.

 

Sell, sell, sell! Winthorpe told me to buy frozen orange juice futures. Or pasts. I forget.

“Sustainability” projects never seem to be sustainable, ‘renewable energy’ counts on huge, ongoing, influxes of gov’t money. When that dries up so does the company. “Environmental impact issues” are basically Flagellants attempting to repel Global Worming induced plagues, they advocate lowering our standard of living to appease Gaia, blow out a candle and praise the dark sort of people.

 

Showed Him!!!

French President Emmanuel Macron swerved to avoid President Trump — so that Macron could be first to greet German Chancellor Angela Merkel instead, as the leaders met in Brussels.

The apparent snub was caught on video, and tweeted by Macron,

Child. “Look at me! I made him think I was gonna shake his hand but I didn’t.”

At least they let him in the country. Which reminds me, is Trump barred from Britain?

 

Fucking Obama, just has to lie every time he opens his mouth.

Obama: “I Didn’t Always Have The Tools” I Needed, “But At Least We Tried” In Syria
At a speech in Germany, former President Barack Obama laments that he didn’t always “have the tools” to do what he wanted to do to stop the war in Syria.

He’s saying he didn’t have tools? He had uber-tools Joe Biden, J. Effin’ Kerry and Chuck, Won’t Someone Take My Calls?, Hagel on the job. What more could he want?

 

This is just ignorant.

dwelling on the last administration can suffice for a counter-narrative with no higher purpose than to give partisan Republicans a way to deflect criticisms away from Trump. But that does not absolve us of our obligation to set the record straight. When it comes to the Obama era, that record is, at times, a disturbing one.

For example, it would be wise for the nation’s objective and center-left media outlets to join the right in dedicating some attention to a bombshell scoop alleging the systemic violation of American civil rights in the Obama years.

Bombshell Scoop!?!?!?!?! We watched it happen, they ignored it, buried it and called anybody who noticed it a racist, paranoiac or Tea Bagger (racist, hater in other words).

What does he expect them to do now? Tarnish the God-President’s Legacy? Admit they were feckless assholes for…ummmm, ever? (I kept going back in time to find a POTUS they didn’t lie about. Maybe Washington?)

 

For news from the land of Tolerance, Love and Mostly-Peace! we go to Evergreen College, where lefties being mostly-peaceful is evergreen!

Over the last 72 hours, students have taken over a small liberal arts college in Washington state, and only one adult has tried to stop them.

Students at Evergreen State College in Olympia, who filmed their exploits and posted the videos on social media, have occupied and barricaded the library, shouting down anyone who disagrees with them or shows insufficient passion for racial justice.

Biology professor Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside of his classroom Tuesday morning for refusing to participate in an event in which white people were invited to leave campus for a day. Now, he says police have told him to hold his classes off campus due to safety concerns…

Now, Weinstein’s reportedly been told to avoid campus because his safety is at risk.

Police told me protesters stopped cars yesterday, demanding information about occupants,” Mr. Weinstein told The Washington Times. “They believe I was being sought. It appears that the campus has been under the effective control of protesters since 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Talk about tolerance and mostly-peace!

So tolerant, loving and mostly-peaceful that

Police are on lockdown

Okay, that’s hilarious.

Or it would be if it was a scene in Airplane III, not so funny since it’s a college Where Our Elite Meet To Excrete!

 

How Dare You Call Us Baddasses!

The Polish Embassy to the United States gave Cramer a refresher course in WWII this week after learning that, on May 11, he had remarked: “Macy’s is like the Polish Army in WWII — it tried to field cavalry against German tanks and it did not end well.”

Poland was not amused.

I’ve only rarely heard people make fun of them for that, I usually respond with comments about duty, honor and balls.

“Here are the facts: in 1939 there were a number of recorded Polish cavalry charges against the invading Nazi German forces. These charges were directed against infantry, artillery, supplies, and at time as a means of breaking encirclement, but never against tanks.”

They knew they were going to die, but they were fighting murderous Nazis who wanted to kill much of their population to make some Lebensraum for good, German stock. Hitler was not shy about talking about that. It’s just that important people knew he didn’t mean it.

 

This surely ain’t no Keystone Pipeline.

A heavy metal music festival in Germany constructed a 4-mile long beer pipeline to more efficiently serve beverages to its guests.

The Wacken Open Air music festival in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein began constructing the massive beer pipeline in the fall and announced it was completed on Tuesday.

Definitely not Keystone Lite either. Germany knows beer.

 
I don’t know the answer to this question, maybe someone here could help her out?

 

Caballero stuff.

Okay, now we have to replace the fuel pump that I forgot I was told wasn’t very good. It’s a crappy electric one that I thought was a good electric one. I hope. I’m getting sick of people telling me stuff and then the next guy telling me the opposite. Hopefully that stops the “stall when idling in hot weather” problem. That’s not a good problem to have in the greater Phoenix metropolitan region.

In VA and NY, I’m in the car business and know mechanics who work for booze and grilled steaks and taters, out here I’m at the mercy of these people.

One guy told me I had too much carburetor and I needed to get rid of it and get a different one.

Another guy told me I didn’t have enough carb, I have a Holley 750, and I need to get a different one. I also need a different distributor from the brand new, HEI one that others have said, “That’s awesome!”

 

Personal stuff. My niece is getting married next month at the Wynn in Vegas. I waited too long so I didn’t get in her block of rooms. They also don’t have any rooms with two beds that weekend. I like my buddy, but not that much.

For about $50 more/night I got a sweet suite at the Venetian Palazzo right across a side street from the Wynn. I love the Venetian, it’s just cool. I forgot about Vegas too and boggled when she asked, “Smoking or non-smoking?” “Extra-smoking please.” My buddy chain-smokes and I’ll bring some cigars.

The best part? I’ll be at the wedding and all the events but I won’t be staying in the same hotel as my family.

As George Burns said, happiness is a large, caring, close-knit family staying at a different casino…living in another state.

 

How does fakenews happen?

Yesterday we made fun of the Wash Post about their SCOOP!!!!! that Trump outed Valerie Plam…ummm…what the hell did he do? Oh yeah, something about Russia.

 

So today Trump said that he talked to the Russians about intelligence. Which is exactly what the fuck he said yesterday.

And now we see Concerned Conservatives like Capt. Boring/Ed Morrissey at Hot Air say,

I guess everyone can put the #fakenews hashtag away for a while, eh? Yesterday, the White House had nat-sec advisor H.R. McMaster issue a broad but unspecific denial after the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump had blurted out highly classified intel to the visiting Russian delegation last week. Rex Tillerson followed suit and the White House communications team issued a terse denial before heading behind closed doors for a meeting.

This morning, as what seems to be a developing pattern, Trump took to Twitter and made hash of the hashtag from his supporters, as well as of White House communications strategy:

Yeah, no. Trump  takes to twitter to say (read the comments on his tweets, there are some angry people out there)

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.

Yesterday the Wash Post said Trump had jeopardized intelligence gathering, McMaster said, “ummmm, no.”, today nothing we’ve seen contradicts that, but everybody is tut-tutting Trump for…uhhhh….. being hated by Minitrue as nearly as I can tell.

Claire Sez

what’s that word….?????

That Rooski word for destroying a country by intentionally creating doubt in the people that there is actually any way whatsoever for them to learn the facts of what is going on.

Not sure of the Russian word, I’d go with Minitrue in English. Here’s the kicker, the part that all Concerned Conservatives are upset about.

Specifically, [Trump] is said to have described the details of an Islamic State threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft. The information itself was reportedly provided by a close Middle Eastern ally.

To which Claire responds

wait…. I heard about that on the nooz…
*I* heard about that on the nooz…

News from last year!

Liberals Are An Inferno Of Flaming Crazy And We Should Pour Gasoline On The Fire

Don’t get me wrong, that’s a good article and I suggest you read it, but where was he last year? That was one of the biggest reasons for voting for Trump, now we’re just roasting marshmallows and popcorn over the fire.

 

Let’s Drudgetapose!

 

Hillary 2015

“We have to end the flood of secret, unaccountable money that is distorting our elections, corrupting our political system, and drowning out the voices of too many everyday Americans,” Mrs. Clinton said in a statement. “Our democracy should be about expanding the franchise, not charging an entrance fee. It starts with overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and continues with structural reform to our campaign finance system so there’s real sunshine and increased participation.”…

She would end secret, unaccountable money in politics…(emphasis me)

Hillary 2017

Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton officially launched a new organization on Monday, “Onward Together,” with the stated goal of “advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.” Put more bluntly, the group’s mission is to advance Clinton’s agenda, which was unable to defeat Donald Trump.
But buried on the donation page is this nugget:

First, you know it has to kill her that bribes paid to her are no longer tax-deductable.

Second, that is one awkward, Engrishy, second sentence. As nearly as I can tell that sentence should read, “Only US citizens or lawfully…can contribute”.

Third, do you get shirts when you become a member? Are they black or brown? Any armbands?

Clintons lie. It’s what they do. They also grift. It’s the other thing they do. Hillary also fascists, it’s what she does.

 

Nothing major, just a reminder about the Unproven Accusation About Voter Fraud!

Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from noncitizens on Nov. 8, an approximation far short of President Trump’s estimate of up to 5 million illegal voters but supportive of his charges of fraud.

Just remember, if it’s not fakenews it’s not at the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc.!

 

Speaking of fascists, the IRS fascists who decided people they disagree with politically deserve no rights,

Current and former IRS officials are asking not to publicly testify about the agency’s alleged bias against Tea Party and other conservative organizations, claiming they are in danger if they do so.

Former official Lois Lerner and Holly Paz both argued in recent filings under seal in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati that the death threats and other harassment…

I can understand that and even agree. If they tell the truth, well.

There is tangible evidence on the laptop of a former DNC staffer that confirms he was talking to WikiLeaks prior to his murder, a private investigator suggested Monday

Dead minions tell no tales.

 

The Far Right Preaches Traditional Values!!!!! Can they accept a lesbian?

Weidel’s rise is the latest expression of a growing, if seemingly ironic, trend. In their policies, nationalist movements in the West often oppose full gay rights, including same-sex marriage. (any examples Wash Post? No? Because Everybody Knows That!!!!!!!!!!!! V)

 

Meanwhile, in Akbar Britain, the Far Right is pushing traditional values but there is pushback by their betters!

The leaders of radical right-wing party Britain First have been arrested following a “campaign” related to an ongoing rape trial at a court in Kent.

So what sort of campaign?

Kent Police said the arrests related to “leaflets and videos posted online” that were linked to an ongoing trial at Canterbury Crown Court. The court case involves the alleged gang rape of a 16-year-old girl.,,

“We were driving to a meeting through Kent and the traffic in front of us stopped,” Fransen told IBTimes UK. “A marked police van had stopped diagonally in front of the cars.

“Then other police cars flew up behind and alongside us and officers leaped out …. they pulled us both out [of the car].”

She added: “It was like watching a Swat team. They were obviously waiting for us on this route.”

As we saw the other day, they’re trying to stop it. Their betters are saying it’s culturally inappropriate to oppose that.

Some days I really hate people. I call those days, “Today”.

I realize I shouldn’t have linked them because Jihadwatch is all about Teh Hateism, so let’s palate-wash with this acceptable free speech!

Last Thursday, I (Robert Spencer) gave a lecture on the jihad threat at the Grand Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland. Shortly thereafter, a young Icelandic Leftist registered his disapproval of what I said by poisoning me.

 

Can’t we all just get along?

 

I do have to give a mea wronga. I’ve said that commies cannot innovate, I wuz wrong,

Nevertheless, the Castro dictatorship is not a failure at everything it does. There is one thing they are particularly good at: repression. It is a skill they have been honing now for more than a half century. While innovation and ingenuity are foreign terms to the Cuban dictatorship when it comes to the economy and civil society, they are constantly innovating and coming up with ingenious new methods of repression.

Cuba is second only to China, the Norks and Berkeley in shutting down free speech!

 

I’ve come to the conclusion that doves are the dickheads of the desert/avian world.

They attack other birds, they constantly coo at me, they attack each other and the kicker, they eat from a dickhead’s bowl

Kago doesn’t eat his dry food plain anymore, I cook crappy, sleeve, 73% hamburger and put it and the grease over his dry food.

Those doves are eating hamburger-grease-infused dog food.

Are they becoming carnivorous?

Luckily, I have a gun for that!

Let’s see if I can ignore Comey for this post.

There’s something about this vid that I really like.

I’m not sure what it is, but I just like watching that.

 

Victor Davis Hanson wonders if Trump can successfully remodel the GOP.  Trump has some help in that, but as we’ve seen, the voters have very limited power to change the gov’t in our particular form of republic. We can change the names of our ‘leaders’, but we apparently have little more power to change the policies than residents of a People’s Republic or even a Democratic People’s Republic.

And this is why

Republicans concentrate on what they like in the Trump agenda — military spending increases, energy expansion, deterrence abroad, tax and regulatory reform, and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act — and they ignore the inherent contradictions between Trumpism and their own political creed…

In this mainstream Republican view, the role of a superpower is to endure trade deficits to help its less powerful allies and keep the global order prosperous and stable. But Trump’s idea of “fair” trade trumps “free” trade.
Trump is not willing to accept a permanent Midwest Rust Belt as the price of globalization.

Yup. They think that people who want to revitalize American manufacturing are parochial and just not that bright. If we have to pay for their vision of how the world works, well, that’s what welfare is for!

At first he seemed to be defending our fine political betters, but then he noticed reality in a way that’s very intelligent (i.e. agrees with what I think)

Unlike doctrinaire Republicans, Trump believes that illegal immigration is a big — and bad — deal.
The Republican establishment’s employer argument is that illegal immigration ensures that the sort of work “Americans won’t do” is actually done. Or, some establishment Republicans believe that undocumented migrants who cross the southern border will one day become conservative, “family values” voters.
Not so Trumpism. It seeks to help the working class by stopping the importation of cheap labor. It believes that secure borders will restore the sanctity of law, and that the end of illegal immigration will lead to greater integration and assimilation of Latino minority groups.

Exactly. The way we integrated immigrants for 200 years is just so simplisme! The Melting Pot is racist and cannot be taught anymore! Diversity is our strength!

While having diverse opinions can be strengthening, we are balkanizing. Immigrants from previous generations are only different in the food they eat and the booze they drink in general. That includes many (most?) Mexicans, although that numbers was a higher percentage of the whole a few decades ago.

Trumpism has no illusions that there will ever be a world of liberal democracies. It seeks instead only to make sure enemies understand that any future aggression will not be worth the anticipated benefits.

Nuke The Moon! baby. We don’t need our enemies to like us, they won’t, we just need them to respect and fear us. Or just fear us. But respect makes it easier to intimidate.

As for dictators such as those in the Philippines or Egypt, Trumpism argues that it makes little sense to snub autocratic friends while cutting deals with autocratic enemies like those in Iran or Cuba.

That’s a great point, why should we be nice to the murderous dictators in China and Iran and mean to non- or less-murderous assholes elsewhere? The asshole in the Philippines isn’t killing his opposition (yet?) and the assholes in Egypt are killing their natural enemies (Christians and insufficiently similar Muslims) but leaving the rest of the world alone. Even Israel mostly.

Obama and Hillary got rid of Mubarak without a plan, Trump shouldn’t do the same. Especially as a sane plan would include us getting involved there after deposing the current dictators. We are done Nation-Building for the foreseeable future. We just don’t have the balls to do it the way we did with Japan and Germany, “Here’s your constitution and gov’t. Meet your new military governor. He’ll be leaving when we can trust you not to be murderous assholes and can trust your neighbors not to invade you and make you differently murderous assholes.”

Now we run away.

On matters of identity politics, Republicans have often sought to play down but not actively oppose racial, ethnic, and gender pressure groups. The strategy has been to not antagonize the ethnic and race industries in hopes of receiving a greater share of the minority vote.
Trump is politically incorrect.

And it’s been hilarious.

Trump just keeps making end runs around Minitrue’s Narrative and the entire We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is just freaking out. Their weapons are useless!

So we see articles like this from Concerned Republicans Who Only Want What Is Best For The Nation!

Headline

For the love of God, delete his account

That would be Trump’s Twitter account. The one that gives our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters such agita.

President Trump’s impulsive social media habit does little to advance his agenda, it pulls both his fans and critics into endless fights and it has created several major headaches for top White House staffers, including Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway.

That’s funny. Our fine betters in Minitrue, their entertainment arm, the rest of the Democratic party and most of the GOP are forced to change their actions because of Trump’s tweets. He got more action out of the country using social media than anyone since Sarah Palin put out her “Death Panel” deal.

It’s no small thing for a sitting president to appear to threaten a former FBI director. (shit, I thought I’d make it without Comeying V)

After 8 years of Obama threatening everybody from day 1, including police doing their jobs, private citizens, more private citizens,  more private citizens, more private citizens, more pr…(moving on) journalists (both real and suckophantic), our military, businesses… I know I’m leaving some people out, but Trump going after Hillary’s Head Bitch is not even in the same ballpark. Trump telling Comey not to lie about him is not just not wrong, but shows Trump has been paying attention to Comey.

It’s even worse when that same director formerly headed an investigation into the role hostile foreign agents played in the election that swept said president into power.

Still fucking that Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chicken I see. Once you see that you can safely assume that the idiot who wrote it is not processing reality. And even if it was 100% Russian Hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did they do? The Job Americans Won’t Do, i.e. report accurately on Democrat perfidy and felonyizing. Above we saw that the GOP is all about foreigners doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do but now they’re against it. Why…. it’s almost as if they use situational ethics where who is on the receiving end decides the morality and ethics of a position!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Assholes.

A non-exhaustive recap of the past week’s crop of Comey Fake News!!!!! that was breathlessly and shriekingly reported and (occasionally) quietly corrected.

If you care. I skimmed it, I don’t really need a reminder of the lies, distortions, contortions and “anonymous” liars they have and are trotting out. The only use for it is that I think Americans are actually watching with dropped jaw as our betters freak out over something they had all, each and every fucking one, called for as little as a week ago.

Speaking of assholes from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, John, I hate Veeshir, McCain!

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, offered high praise for Sen. John McCain on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican’s vocal criticism of President Trump marks his “finest hour.”

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

The senior Arizona senator has also been critical of Trump’s “America first” approach to foreign policy,

Exactly. We gave the GOP victories in the last few elections because we didn’t like what the Dems were doing to our nation so what do the big shit sheep…grand poo bahs of the GOP do? Stuff that gets praise from Democrats. Asshole Democrats like Schiff.

 

Speaking of the entertainment arm of the Democratic media/entertainment political complex, The Last (conservative) Man Standing isn’t.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing”…

Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across…

the blue-collar sitcom was ABC’s second most watched comedy this season with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8,7 million). It was the third most watched ABC scripted series overall behind Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family….(emphasis me V)

 

So they canceled one of the shows that people actually want to watch for their religion. Someone should tell them that tithing only requires 10%, not bankruptcy. Via Commonsense and Wonder.

 

The NY Post plays Name That Party! about a DA stepping back as he’s being criminally investigated.

allegations he took part in a police coverup involving former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke, who pleaded guilty in February 2016 to federal charges that he beat a man who stole a stash of porn and a sex toy from Burke’s official vehicle.

I don’t get the problem, misuse of gov’t property is a right and Dems covering up their accomplices in graft is how NY works! He looks sorta old, maybe the ass’t DA wasn’t interested in waiting for him to retire.

 

Nothing story about a Republican running for election has “irregularities” in his past, I’d say his mistake is he wasn’t high enough up in the hierarchy of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party to have the necessary degree of impunity.

Former South Carolina state senator Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district, sat on the board of a bank that accepted millions of dollars from the Obama administration’s 2008 bailout.

But I’m linking for the part I bolded. In 2008 Obama was not POTUS, that was Bush’ 2008 bailout.

Norman served on South Carolina Bank and Trust Financial Corporation’s board of directors in January 2009 when the bank sold $64.8 million in preferred stock and a 10-year warrant to the Treasury Department under its Capital Purchase Program, which was created as part of the federal government’s $700 billion bailout.

January, 2009 was when Obama ascended, that was Bush’s bailout.  The one he rammed down the financial world’s throat.

The chief executives of the country’s nine largest banks had no choice but to accept capital infusions from the Treasury Department in October, government documents released Wednesday have confirmed.

Obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan educational foundation, the documents reveal “talking points” used by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the Oct. 13 meeting between federal officials and the executives that stressed the investments would be required “in any circumstance,” whether the banks found them appealing or not.

Notice that in 2009 to that member in good standing of our fine media betters Judicial watch was “non-partisan”. (I know I missed a couple commas in there but I’m not sure where so here are a few you can insert  ,,,)

But why is the Free Beacon obfuscating the issue of who started stimuluzing and bailouting while attacking this man as a Friend Of Obama? Is the “journalist” just an idiot or is there some sort of agenda in play?

Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district,

Are they joining the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party or is it just that opinionator or are they angry that he’s not a conservative or some other, undisclosed, reason?

Because I’ll tell you what, taking money you’re forced to take by the POTUS from your party is not necessarily a sign that you’re not conservative.

Just something that confused me.

 

This is very messed up. In a story about a Gorsuch dissent (he was against the arrest), we see this.

The New Mexico incident began in 2011 when the student, known only as F.M. in court papers, kept interrupting his physical education class with fake burps. The teacher sent him into the hallway, where he continued burping and laughing as he leaned into the classroom entrance. (emphasis me V)

The teacher called for assistance on her school radio, and soon Arthur Acosta, a police officer assigned to the school, arrived in the hallway, according to court documents.

Acosta took the boy to the school’s office, then placed him under arrest for violating a New Mexico law that prohibits anyone from disrupting the education process. Acosta handcuffed the student and took him to the juvenile detention center, where the boy stayed about an hour until he was picked up…

I think it’s ridiculous that the kid was arrested, expel him if he’s that disrespectfully disruptive, but notice a few things.

There were cops patrolling the school, that’s not often done in schools where it’s not necessary. Maybe the cop knew the kid from previous interactions. Judging from what happened, I’m gonna assume this choir boy/orphanage-volunteer had previously had such disrespectful and disruptive episodes.

Also think about what he was doing.

Acosta’s lawyer says the criminal act was the boy’s “interference with the educational process, not the act of burping.”

Sure, it was burping and laughing, but he was showing a complete lack of respect for the teacher, the other students and the whole concept of school. Further, his actions showed that he was utterly unafraid of any repercussions. From my experience, I’m gonna assume calling the parents would not be a useful exercise.

There are a lot of kids like that, I’m not just saying that just from my teaching experience but from relatives’ kids and their friends.

School cannot work unless there’s respect flowing both ways. Respect for others is sorely lacking in today’s culture.

 

Let’s Tolerance!

First up, we have this.

A Detroit-area high school is holding an all-girls prom

That’s not a prom. Jebus. How can you have a prom without prom-dates? Here’s the Tolerance part.

to create a comfortable and safe environment for girls who cannot attend the traditional co-ed prom for cultural reasons.

So in other words, the girls’ owners (male relatives) would beat them, honor-kill them, cut off their noses or just throw acid in their faces if they act like American girls.

I hate people sometimes. You really should not cater to that shit.

Now, for a little palate-washer, let’s look at the State of American Heavy Metal! They’re bad ass, they won’t cave to intolerant religious assholes who are intolerant!

Megadeth agreed to cut songs that were potentially “offensive” to Muslims after the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) Youth group voiced its objection to them touring the country.

Oh.

I wish to offend no one here. We cut songs for China.”

Really? Megadeth was out manlied by Elton John?

Chinese authorities have hardened their line on foreign musicians, after Elton John infuriated them by dedicating a performance to outspoken artist and activist Ai Weiwei, according to industry sources. Police arrived to interview the singer shortly after he announced that the performance, which took place in Beijing last November, was dedicated “to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei”

So sad.

When people try to censor your art, you tell them to fuck off or you just do your deal.

However, he (Jeff Dunham V) was informed by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture that Achmed should not be mentioned or brought on to the show..

Dunham cleverly side-stepped the issue by introducing a new character; “Who knew that Achmed had a French cousin — Jacques, the dead French terrorist?” he says. “It was Achmed with a beret and mustache, and the audience loved it, thankfully. But I was a bit frightened there, too. I thought, ‘Will they drag me off the stage and make an example of me?’ I honestly thought that was a possibility, as you never know how strict and real these laws are.”

So in other words, a flamingly flamboyent homosexual musician, second only to Liberace in his flamboyence, flaming and homosexuality, and a guy who plays with dolls have more balls than Megadeth!

Still say 80s music has heart and soul?

This made me laugh when I saw it. I’d like to see the entire show, but even his specials only show bits and pieces.

That’s how you do it.

 

Relatedly, Trump appoints a Frenchman, Vladimierre Poutin, as head of the FBI!

Sometimes reality is less funny than fantasy.

 

And then there are times like this.

A judge set bail Friday for an Elkhorn man accused of hiring prostitutes to bare their breasts and strip on his neighbor’s porch

My neighbors just call the cops on me.

Not sure why the cops got involved this time though, it seems to me a ‘Thank You’ was in order.

 

I thought hockey players were exempt from this shit.

Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss has apologized after he reportedly caused an outrage in Germany when it was discovered that he “liked” an Instagram post comparing Hillary Clinton to Adolf Hitler.

Although the way they’ve been trying to Stop Hockey’s Ultra-Violent Ways!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have figured SJW’s were paying attention.

One thing, I wonder if Hillary shaves anything like a Hitler mustache.

*smack*

Sorry, but if I had warned you you wouldn’t have read that and cringed.

The funniest thing I’ve heard hockey announcers say was when Montreal made Pierre Turgeon captain cuz he’s French-Canadian and a NY Islanders announcer said, “That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, the Islanders would have to have a Jew as captain!

The next day I waited to see but nobody freaked out. I figured they were still exempt, but apparently the forces of Tolerance And Love have decided that every aspect of our lives needs to be Toleranced, Loved and Mostly-Peaced.

 

 

I found an inside look at one of the top journalists at the Wash Post!

 

They’re obviously very busy, that must be why their lies and Fake News are so pathetic.
