No really, it’s just too freaking…I don’t know but it’s too much of it!
First, I’m gonna agree.
“George Washington was all about counterintelligence,” he said. “He would have had at least half the Trump WH shot as traitors, without tears or doubts.”
Probably. Almost definitely.
Since we’re discussing George Washington shooting elected officials, let’s talk about how he would have shot the entire Obama admin, the entire (hypothetical) Hillary admin, pretty much all the Dem Cong and most of the GOP Cong. Capitol Hill would have about 8 people living there after he got done with them.
Did nothing anybody said about this election get through to our betters? The choice wasn’t between “Better” and “Betterer”, it was between “Fuck me” and “I’m Fucked”.
Let’s do some Minitrue!
Clinton campaign plagued by bickering
Hillary Clinton Is An Unpleasant Person To Campaign For
Support for alternate headline
She’d been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sanders down for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew — or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team...
Sensing just how angry she was, Mook responded by putting together a morning conference call so that Hillary could vent. But that didn’t settle her; if anything, it left her more perplexed and angry, as her debate-prep team witnessed firsthand.
Her aides took the browbeating — one of several she delivered in person and on the phone that day — in silence (all emphasis me V)
So..her aides took her attacks in silence and there was “bickering”? Doesn’t “bickering” imply that there is more than one person doing the yelling?
And once again, this is not new. We already established this way back in Travelgate.
Up Next We Have The GOP Congress Section!
So…it’s been introduced legislation only, none seem to even have been voted on, much less passed. So there’s a GOP Cong and POTUS and yet, Congress has not done any of the things they’ve been specifically elected to do.
Let’s see what they’re doing.
Via TaxProf Blog (he of the Day 125,874 of the IRS Scandal posts) on day 1435 (25 days from the 4 year mark) some CongressCritter in Texas wants you to honk your horn, slap your fins and ARF!!!!!!! for all you’re worth!
Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL) sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling on the Department of Justice to review evidence that Lois Lerner, the former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director under the Obama Administration, broke the law to target Americans for their political beliefs.
Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics. Again, I respectfully request that the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to assure the American people that DOJ’s prior investigation was handled fairly and to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.
Oh, so he’s not saying, “Arrest that lying, thuggish, fascist”. Is he saying to actually investigate her or is he Tom Sawyer convincing some friends that’s taking care of Aunt Polly’s fence is gonna be fun? The last sentence sorta implies that.
He links Gateway pundit with with headline
BREAKING: House GOP To File Criminal Charges Against Lois Lerner
…There is a bit of hyperbole in Gateway Pundit’s headline, but it is clear that the House is taking another look at Lerner with the intent of referring her to the Justice Department for prosecution.
GP has this quote
Rep. Roskam: The Obama Administration was very lenient with the crimes that Lois Lerner committed. And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice… We think that Lois Lerner did two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we suspect that she lied to the Inspector General of the Treasury Department.
That’s not saying they’re doing crap, that’s saying she deserves it.
Yeah, we knew that. We also knew you assholes aren’t going to do crap.
Ooooohhhhhh!!!!! They’re going after Susan Rice Too!!!!!!!! ARF ARF ARF!!!!!!!!!!
An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under “a full-blown investigation,” Fox News reported on Wednesday.
“We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation,” the committee member said.
Contra the 70s T-Shirt, we’re gonna get injected, not blown.
They’re doing jack and shit.
And shit ran out of corn.
It’s Failure Theater all the way, they have not passed one fucking bill on border control or repealing Obamacare, both of which they should have been planning since November 9th. They’re talking about “taxes” but taxes was not a big issue in the election, Obamacare, illegal immigration and spending were the biggest issues.
An old Eddiebear post, hie thee hence and read the whole thing, it’s oddly apropos.
That’s right. We still have too many fucking RINOs in our midst who seem content to fuck us over at the drop of a hat. We still have too many fucking RINOs who are willing to abandon core principles in order to get an invite to a party or a glowing WAPO Style Section article. We still have too many RINOs who are willing to spit in our collective eye and tell us that we are in the wrong for demanding they vote the way we want. We still have too many RINOs who are more willing to work as statist collaborators than as defenders of freedom. We still have too many RINOs who feel entitled to their seats as though they were a sinecure appointment without consequence. We still have too many RINOs who ignored November’s call to action and think that holding your nose and voting for “the lesser evil” will hold sway with us. And we still have too many RINOs who need to be culled, for they are disloyal Quislings who put us in the problem we are in right now for their past actions. And to them, and their supporters, I say:
Eddiebear at his fucking finest.
And that’s my point, how can you get motivated to blog when we’re dealing with the same bullshit we were dealing with two POTUSes ago?
Trump keeps ‘xecutively unordering Obama’s leftisms and making the world afraid of America again, why we elected him. He can’t do Congress’ job. We can get respect from our allies back eventually but for now, I’m hoping for a heaping helping of fear.
Tsar Putin I is very upset and it’s all Trump’s fault!!!!!!!!
Hours earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was equally pessimistic, saying in an interview broadcast on Russian television, “The level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved but has rather deteriorated.” (since Trump, V)
I’m with the tsar. Last year he had a POTUS he could literally shit on
Although Russia was full of pranks against American officials during the Cold War, the State Department suggested the current harassment has been going on since 2014…
…On at least two occasions, diplomats have found human excrement on their floors.
And now he has to deal with President Bomby McNukerson. Talk about a let down for a murderous, expansionist, Tsar.
Yesterday I wrote about the Norks but wasn’t clear….ummmm…was more unclear than normal.
Nobody is going to side with us if we hit the Norks, except probably Japan. It’s not in anybody else’s interest to do so. Well, unless we go to war, to the hilt war, with China.
But that’s unlikely (unless China starts it which is a very different kettle of dead commies), what is likely is a little fucking with.
I’d love to see Japan (or us, but I’d prefer them) to cruise missile the next Nork missile test. Just blow it the fuck up on the pad. Then, when everybody starts freaking we tell them to go screw or even better, deny it. “I don’t know who did that. Japan, did you do that? No? Taiwan, did you do that? No? Sorry murderous, Chinese, commie, dictators, we don’t know who did it.”
China and Japan are already close to war, this won’t change shit except possibly do a ‘Syria’ on China. Keep them worried about our crazed, poofy-haired maniac instead of the other way around.
Stephen Green links the WSJ because I can’t and the Wash Post because I don’t wanna.
Meantime, of course, Russian President Vladimir Putin was the great-power leader who was supposed to emerge as the Trump favorite, the one who would develop a close relationship and be forgiven for past transgressions.
Minitrue cannot get past the lie that Tsar Putin I preferred Trump over an easily and often bribed Clinton. And what exactly are our “past transgressions”? Ignoring their invasions, assassinations in other countries and when we caused the fall of the USSR?
Yet somehow in the five months or so since Mr. Trump’s election victory, almost the reverse has happened. Now it appears the Trump-Xi relationship may be emerging as the world’s most important.
Our betters are all enamored of China. China is still a murderous, expansionist, commie, dictatorship. They really, really, really want us to emulate them.
Premier Li says ignore your lying eyes!
China is not militarising the South China Sea, Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday, although he acknowledged that defence equipment on islands in the disputed waterway had been placed there to maintain “freedom of navigation”.
Yeah, freedom of navigation. How free?
Despite its concessions, China’s presence here is growing, with a larger contingent of coastguard and fishing boats than was indicated in satellite imagery late last year.
That fuels concerns by Manila that Beijing may have ambitions for the Scarborough Shoal similar to the artificial islands it built and fortified in the Spratly archipelago, inside the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone.
No really, how free?
Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte has cancelled a planned visit to an island the Philippines claims in the disputed South China Sea, after Beijing warned him against the visit.
Reminds me of some movies from the early 40s, they were not happy movies.
Entire sections of booster rocket were snagged by South Korea’s navy and then scrutinized by international weapons experts for clues about the state of North Korea’s missile program. Along with motor parts and wiring, investigators discerned a pattern. Many key components were foreign-made, acquired from businesses based in China.
When China decides that the Norks need a good missile, they’ll have the best missiles the murderous commies in China can make. When China decides the Norks need nukes, they’ll give them some commie Chinese nukes.
There’s a line in Pork Chop Hill where one of the US Generals or diplomats negotiating with the Norks says something like, “Don’t just think of them as Orientals, they’re commie orientals.”
The Chinese are sure we’re idiots and their culture is the only good one. They will say all manner of shit just to fuck with us. Indeed, they look down on us when we are honest.
So anything they say about the deal with the Norks means absolutely nothing at all. It’s only useful as a guide that we might be able to use to figure out what they are going to do, but even that is more miss than hit.
They want to expand, they’re not going to give up NoKo and they love having the Norks fuck with the world. They’re the Plausible Deniability state. Which would make it even funnier to blow up their missile test and plausibly deny we had anything to do with it.
Some people make me laugh. Imam wants to make sure hateful Americans understand Islam means Peace.
a message he intends to spread especially to non-Muslims who may be familiar with the religion only through news coverage of Islamic extremist groups and federal policies such as the Trump administration’s travel ban.
“We as Muslims owe it to the American people to tell them what Islam is,” Al-Qazwini said. “Islam is not a cult. It is a religion followed by over 1.6 billion people around the world. … Yet many Americans don’t know basically anything about Islam. Many Americans have not met a Muslim in their life.
So what is he calling his message?
Al-Qazwini’s new mantra: “Islam for All.”
Yeah see, that’s one of the biggest, non-splodey, problems we have with many Islamic types, they want us all to be their religion.
Oh, and Islam doesn’t just mean ‘peace’
Islam is derived from the Arabic root “Salema”: peace, purity, submission and obedience
Peace through submission.
I prefer Peace Through Superior Firepower.
I’ve had this conversation with a bunch of people on a bunch of subjects, from “standing to sue federal officials” to how my bank should treat me, and while I understand my position is not the legal one, this illustrates my problem with not just airlines but lawyers.
OregonMuse had a post at Ace’s
#2 son worked for several years as a “ramp agent” at our local airport. Ramp agents are airline grunt workers. They check passengers in, check baggage, wave planes into the gate with flashlights, clean up the passenger areas of the plane between flights, etc.
Coincidentally, he worked for United.
I asked him for his take on the United brouhaha.
The money shot for me.
They’re allowed to overbook their flights and they’re also allowed to kick off pretty much whomever they want to make room. The law states that the airline must solicit volunteers to take another flight (which they did), after which they can start involuntarily denying boarding to passengers. It’s also my understanding that “denied boarding” can even occur after the plane is physically boarded.
I understand and accept overbooking, lots of people miss flights and the airline shouldn’t have to eat that, but the “denied boarding can occur after boarding” is fucking stupid lawyer tricks.
How can he be “denied boarding” after he’d already been boarded? The boarding is in the past, they cannot then ‘deny’ it. They can negate it, but they cannot deny that which has occurred.
Sure you already drank that soda, but we’re denying you drinking that soda so I’m going to punch you in the stomach to get it back! is not reductio ad absudum, it’s reductio ad exactly the fucking samum.
Stupid fucking lawyer tricks.
I’m sure if any of you are lawyers you think I’m wrong. I accept that. Accept that I think it’s stupid fucking lawyer tricks to deny the plain meaning of words because there’s some stupid fucking argument that denies reality but sounds good.
He was in his seat. He “possessed” the seat and they took it away. It was apparently perfectly okay for an airline to use law enforcement to enforce their rules that go against the plain meaning of the words.
Stupid fucking lawyer tricks, allowed by ex-lawyers as judges, made them violently hauling that guy off the plane perfectly fucking legal.
Man, that worked me up.
Let’s have a coupla chucklers.
This story is Kagogi Approved!
The journey took the 8-year-old through 4 intersections, over railroad tracks and also required him to make a few right hand turns and a left hand turn.
Witnesses told police he did obey all traffic laws and drove the speed limit.
Once at the McDonald’s on Market Street, a family friend who happened to be eating at the restaurant, notified the children’s grandparents. The children did get to eat their cheeseburgers before police arrived.
A trip to the Golden Arches is always in order.
There’s a little 21st centuryism in there.
Officer Koehler arrived at McDonald’s and talked to the little boy, who told him he had learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.
That makes me laugh.
There are 11 million hits on this, but I don’t think I’ve seen it before. Of course, that could just mean I posted it on this blog.
Some dude is leaving a message when he sees an accident.
I keep picturing the “Where’s the beef?” blue haired crew.
Okay one more.
I bet this is Seattle.
Dude, did someone move the city?
