It’s funny how often people will get mad at you for saying something and then prove that what you said was true.

Here we have a totally tolerant Muslim explain her tolerance and desire for peace.

David Horowitz: I am a Jew, the head of Hezbollah hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down.

For or against it?

Totally tolerant Muslim: “For”.

That exchange happens at about 2:50.

Her defense is here.

Towards the end of the exchange, I became emotional. I could no longer hear Mr. Horowitz speaking and so did not even hear his injection of Hezbollah’s credo of “rounding up” Jews in his last tangent.  I could no longer contain my anger at being implicitly and improperly labeled a terrorist, an anti-Semite, and a proponent of genocide. The answer I was coerced into giving grossly misrepresented my beliefs and ideologies.

 

You can watch the vid, it surely looks as if her “defense” is a lie. YMMV.

The funniest part? She thinks this makes it all better.

My answer, “for it,” in the context in which it was said does NOT mean “for” genocide. I was referring to his initial question that asked me for my position on Hamas,

So…. she’s against genocide but she is for a murderous group who wants to commit genocide.

Seriously, she thinks that’s a defense.

 

Trump tweets about fakenews,

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Predictably, fakenewser freak out.  My favorite?

Soo….enemy of the American people is the same as enemy of the State?

Dude, you really need to move to North Korea or China or some other murderous, commie dictatorship.

Love this one, McCain is finally defending his constituents!

Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media this week by noting dictators “get started by suppressing free press.”

I really don’t like that fuckhead.

Trump isn’t “suppressing” the free press, he’s calling them the lazy, biased, ignorant and stupid lying sacks of shit they are.

But he continued, “If you want to preserve — I’m very serious now — if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press,”

Yeah about that, they need to be “adversarial” to all politicians, not just lying sacks of adversarial shit against the ones they hate and lying sacks of obsequious shit for the ones they love.

 

The Italians had the Vaffanculo Day protests, then the Pitchfork Movement, both to protest unaccountable, venal assholes. So… How’s that going for them?

Hundreds of public buildings in Rome are occupied by political parties and associations that have not been paying rent for years. According to data as of November 30, over than six million Euros (6.8) are missing from the coffers of Ater-Roma, Rome’s public housing body.

About as expected.

I’m rooting for Italy to get a Trump, but they already had one (Beppe Grillo), since they’re Europeans, I expect them to get someone who’s closer to what our fine media idiots think Trump is.

 

These “leaks” are untrustworthy, but I’d say we all really need to be good so this one comes true.

Senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as a replacement for ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Oh man would that be beautiful. What’s the opposite of “Pyrrhic Victory”? Because losing Flynn but gaining Bolton would be that.

 

The rest have no scheme except they’re NY Post heavy.

I can usually say, “This is the theme.” but lately it’s been nearly impossible, so in no particular order:

Trump fans are getting license plates so totally tolerant lefties will know which cars to trash! My two faves.

  • TRUMPU

  • TRUMPWON

 

That’s funny. I figure the vehicle with the second one doesn’t last a month.

On the other side of the equation…inequality, we have these idiots.

An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.

I look forward to all the hagiographies about this totally ‘grass-roots’ group.

The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers.”

That’s gonna work out great! Trump is a shoe-in for 2020 now!

Jackasses.

 

Phoenixians are going to get it good and hard. They got rid of Sheriff Joe and I have a feeling they’re going to discover there are worse things than a sheriff who enforces the laws.

Maricopa County jails will no longer detain people flagged by federal authorities as a courtesy for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Sheriff Paul Penzone said Friday evening.

I live in a very redneck area, we don’t have the same problems the rest of the valley has. The only home invasions in AJ are tweakers home-invading their dealers when they can’t scrape $5 together. I expect Phoenix to have a different experience, what with the beheadings, kidnappings and gang wars. But good luck with that.

 

I hate all commie dictatorships and the people who act as if they’re not gigantic slave-plantations really piss me off. In China, when people go to the city to work in the factories they’re not allowed to bring their kid so the kids have to stay back in the village and work there. That link is to pictures of the kids left home.

Caption to this pic. Joining parents in the city is not usually an option, as China’s hukou documentation system dictates that education and health care are accessible only in the district where a child is born and registered.

The billion serfs in that murderously commie dictatorship really have it shitty.

But that pic reminds me of the next story.

New Yorkers are trading children for pets

I wonder how many kids I could get for Kagogi. I’d probably get more in China than America. Kago would have to dress out at 40lbs at least and you’d get a decent fur coat out of him.

 

Interesting

It was announced on Saturday that Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos will deliver next Saturday’s keynote address at CPAC

Is CPAC no longer afraid of gay cooties?

Good for them.

 

Good riddance you fascist bitch.

A Democratic Federal Election Commission official who pushed to regulate the internet and has been absent from public meetings for months is resigning, according to an announcement.

Ann Ravel, who wanted to regulate political speech on the internet from websites such as the Drudge Report, announced Sunday that she is stepping down from her post.

Stopping fuckheads like her from regulating political speech is the whole fucking reason we have free speech in the 1st amendment.

Which reminds me of why it’s so infuriatingly funny that anti-1st amendment asshole John McCain is calling out Trump for being against the 1st amendment (free press).

 

Let’s end on dichotomy.

Think about how we felt 4 months ago. We were waiting for our gov’t go attack us, not metaphorically but physically. We were in year 8 of Recovery Summer that only helped those connected. The GOP was busily doing Failure Theater while attacking me barely less than they were attacking Trump. It was a dark and stormy time.

Then, we woke up on 11/9 and it was different. The Sun was brighter, the veal tastier, tears of leftists saltier. Like night and day.

It was different for some.

On the morning of November 9, 2016, America’s elite—its talking and deciding classes—woke up to a country they did not know. To most privileged and well-educated Americans, especially those living in its bicoastal bastions, the election of Donald Trump had been a thing almost impossible even to imagine. What sort of country would go and elect someone like Trump as president? Certainly not one they were familiar with, or understood anything about.

That just gave me a huge schadenboner.

With this bit of ultra-hilarity.

Now that those signals are no longer possible to ignore, it is high time for experts and intellectuals to reacquaint themselves with the country in which they live and to begin the task of describing what has befallen the country in which we have lived since the dawn of the new century.

They do not see any reason to understand what happened, they’re too busy attacking us for that./Trump 2020

It’s long but very depressing, I cherry-picked the funny parts. The rest is about how boned we are.

Basically, if you click on “Funniest End of Civilization Evah” on the left, you’ll see much of the same stuff.

 

 

 

California got $34 billion of stimulizing money that apparently didn’t go to the dam they’ve known for more than a decade was in danger.

Despite more than a decade of warnings about Oroville, there is no public record of the country’s tallest dam receiving any of the more than $34 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act sent to California for infrastructure projects.

I absolutely love this bit

The California Department of Water Resources denied that it had failed to heed concerns about the emergency spillway.

“We have a very rigorous schedule of inspections that is determined by state and federal regulators,” said spokesman Eric See. “We actually do those inspections annually.”

So what you’re saying is that even though you inspected this dam and checked all the right boxes, it’s falling apart?!?!?!!? That can’t be!

Bureaucrats checking boxes is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical bureaucratic ceremony!

So what did they spend that infrastructure money on?

Thompson lauded numerous stimulus projects, which included $2.2 million for “more attractive” sidewalks and $2.5 million for a 205-acre “zero net energy” community on the University of California Davis campus to put a greater “emphasis on walking” and bicycling.

“zero net energy” means, “No modern infrastructure”, which is very Californian. They took infrastructure stimulizing money to create a place with no infrastructure while ignoring the dam that’s GONNA KILL THEM ALL!.

That’s dam funny. And dam endy as well. Glad I don’t live downstream.

 

This next link should have been first, but then the headline wouldn’t have made any sense. This is  fucking outrageous.

By now many of you know that Mike Strickland, a pro-gun, free lance journalist was convicted of  21 counts of self defense on Friday, Feb.10.

Strickland had been attacked by a mob in Portland while covering a “Black Lives Matter” protest. The attack was planned and coordinated in advance.

They went after this guy because in peaceful, tolerant Oregon you cannot go against the tolerance and love of lefties or they’ll fucking beat you into a coma or throw you in jail in a fully justified twisting of laws.

I’d excerpt more of it but it needs to be read in full. The scope of the railroading of this guy is breathtaking.

And the worst part? You know the majority of voters in that bastion of peace, love, inclusion and tolerance would be just happy to see this nazi get putsched.

 

So a few months ago Yellen was talking about negative interest rates, but that’s when she needed to keep interest rates down so it wasn’t so obvious how screwed we are over debt. Now, she needs to get a president impeached so here we are, watching our fine betters trying so hard to make him unpopular.

The financial world has been put on notice by the US central bank to get ready for interest rate rises, but there is still no word on when…

Yellen did warn about delaying rate hikes: “Waiting too long to remove accommodation would be unwise.

I hate the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

 

failure-theater

Ann Coulter occasionally goes over the top, but she also is usually spot on.

What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?

More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross “staffing an entire branch of government” off the list….

The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law.

Yup.

To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does…

Way, way back, 15 long months ago, congressional Republicans didn’t have a problem with a total ban on Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Not for a mere three months like Trump’s order — but permanently…

That bill passed the House with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority, including 47 Democrats. Then it went to the Senate to die.

The establishment pricks of the GOP are not taking their comeuppance well.

 

More Failure Theater

Massie’s measure consists of only one sentence: “The Department of Education Shall Terminate on December 31, 2018.” He introduced it at the very same time U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate.

I hope, but you know it won’t happen.

Nother, 1-line, bill.

Republican-backed legislation to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is definitely one of the shortest bills Congress has dealt with in a while.

“The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on December 31, 2018” is all the bill says regarding EPA’s elimination. The bill’s preamble has more words than its legislative language.

And like the previous, it ain’t going anywhere.

 

So what’s the endgame of Failure Theater?

The Democrat Party really, really is dwindling away before our eyes. But don’t misunderstand me. It’s precisely because of this that the unelected Democrat Party, which is embedded in our nation’s bureaucracy, has taken over the role of the opposition party. And by that I mean all of the Obama appointees in the intelligence community. All of the Obama and Clinton appointees at the departments of justice, departments of state and the defense department, they are all there, and they are working to sabotage the administration of Donald Trump from within. They are doing this with the aid and cooperation of the media. (Don’t forget the GOP pricks like McCain! V)

Putting Teh Peepul in their place (at the feet of our fine moral, social, intellectual and political betters).

 

Speaking of putting Teh Peepul in their place, Orange Coast Community College slays me.  We’ve all seen the story about the kid who recorded his unhinged prof unhingedly attacking Trump ‘forcing’ the school to suspend him. What cracks me up is what he has to do to be readmitted to this fine institution.

To be allowed back in school, the letter says, O’Neil’s essay is to be three pages and double-spaced and must discuss why he videotaped the professor. Also, the essay is to cover his “thoughts and analysis” on why he decided to share the videos, what he thought would happen to Cox and “the impact of the video going ‘viral’ and the ensuing damage to Orange Coast College students, faculty and staff.”

Gee, it’s not as if he’s going to be able to go to another community college! I mean, there are so few of them!

He should write three pages, quadruple-spaced, and discuss how the admin in that community college are bunch of fascist assholes and thank them for letting him know he needed to go to another community college. Preferably in a different state.

 

 

High-larious!

Why?

A Facebook chatbot is offering hapless men the words to charm any feisty feminist without causing offence.

No really, why?

The worst part is that something that could avoid causing offence to a feminist must be some powerful fucking software and they’re wasting it on talking to feminists.

That’s not funny!

It’s worse when you realize stuff like that before you die.

Let’s Tube!

I have a word of advice for Romanians who’ve been protesting their corrupt, Obama-style gov’t.

Romania’s parliament on Monday unanimously endorsed a presidential proposal for a nationwide referendum to get public support for the fight against corruption.

Keep watching them, right now they’re just trying to get you to shut up and go back to ignoring them. Don’t fall for it!

There is no time-frame yet and MPs’ backing for the plan is not binding.

But it does send a strong message…

See? This is the “Throwing fish at you to get you to clap your fins and honk your squeezy bulbs” phase. Keep reminding them about the “Decorating lamp post” phase.

 

In EUnuchstan, they don’t have freedom of spe… well, freedom of style of guess.

A Hitler lookalike has been arrested in Austria on charges of glorifying the Nazi era, local officials say.

The 25-year-old man reportedly calls himself Harald Hitler.

The man, sporting a side parting and a trademark moustache, had been seen having his photograph taken outside the house in Braunau am Inn in which Adolf Hitler was born.

He was arrested for dressing like Hitler, nothing more. I’m all for laws against murderous ideologies acting murderously ideological, but shouldn’t those laws require actual actions? I mean, I know why they have the laws, they don’t trust their serfs. That doesn’t mean I like it.

 

Let’s do some media bias.

Fakenewsers at the NY Times on the recent round-ups of extra-felony illegal aliens.

Federal immigration officials arrested more than 600 people across at least 11 states last week, detaining 40 people in the New York City area, law enforcement officials said on Sunday.

It remained unclear whether the actions by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were part of continuing operations to round up undocumented immigrants with criminal convictions or a ramping-up of deportations by the Trump administration.

Wait, you mean they didn’t tell you?

President Trump proclaimed on Twitter early Sunday morning: “The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!”

But Gillian Christensen, acting press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, said, “The focus of these targeted enforcement operations is consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE’s Fugitive Operations Teams on a daily basis.”

That “But” in there in the second paragraph is not needed, unless you want to follow up with some lies to obfuscate the issue.

The contradiction heightened an already swelling fear among immigrants and their advocates.

Oh right.

Now remember this paragraph as you read what the Daily Mail reports.

“All these people are in violation of some sort of immigration law,” the official said, adding that some of their convictions included rape and aggravated assault.

Oh, so only “some”?

Akbar Britain’s Daily Mail.

Federal immigration officials are laying out a range of crimes that have been committed by a undocumented immigrants snatched up in immigration raids around the country over the last week.

This included those ‘convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges,’ according to the statement.

That doesn’t sound like “some” to me.

Remember, we have to learn bad news for Dem constituencies in furrin papers.

American papers are defending foreigners and foreign papers report on what’s going on. Aristophanes Approved!\

 

One of my favorite smells is working on showing that Hate-Crimes folks smell bad.

So I Documented A Hate Crime Incident Today…
I was inspired by this CBC article; Website to keep tabs on incidents involving hate in Alberta

I was so motivated I went straight to the STOPHATEAB.CA web site and filed my complaint.

I complained about an Anti-Ahmadi sect hate screed that the Muslims in Calgary web site has had published since at least 2016. I covered this hate screed last year and you can read about it here.

The hate screed states that the Ahmadi are apostates who spread filth and are allied with Israel. That’s pretty much a death sentence in Islam.

I expect the response to say, ‘Stop being so hatey! We go after right wing hate!” or something semantically equivalent but obfuscatory.

 

The Narrative! Is Everything!

The media luminaries have gone crazy after four journalists asked a series of legitimate questions about major international issues like immigration, national security, and trade policy of President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a joint press conference on Monday.
Media figures are furious that the journalists asked about real issues affecting people in both countries—the United States and Canada—rather than parroting the same anti-Trump narrative about National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn that the media have been pushing all weekend.

There are two reasons the media is freaking out over Trump taking questions from non-important news outlets. The first is They’re Important and this makes them feel less important. The other is that the new folks don’t know which questions they’re supposed to ask to further The Narrative!. That pisses them off.

I’m not sure what to think about Flynn. On the one hand, I have no idea what’s going on (at least I admit it, Minitrue just makes up the worst interpretation), on the other hand this gives Minitrue a stick to beat Trump with. On the gripping hand, the Trump 2020 reelection committee is in full swing so they’ll overplay their OUTRAGE!!!! on this. (Megyn Kelly must be freaking out that she can’t get her OUTRAGE!!!!!!! on for a while)

 

Let’s shows some sausage making!

Headline

Did Kylie Jenner Get A Boob Job? Why Am I Being Paid To Write About This Shite?

The reason you’re being paid to do that is because that’s what the news media is all about anymore, you lie to elect Dems or you do click-bait articles with “boob” and “sex” in the headline.

But the important part is that the story actually shows us the MO of the news media very succinctly. The quoted bits are from his editor telling him how to write a hard-news article.

“The last thing we want is readers to think we have an opinion, we’ve got to disguise that with suggestive yet subtle language, but don’t make it obvious. We’re judging her for having the boob job, but we don’t want our readers to realise that, we’ve got to stay on the fence about these things and invite them to judge instead”. Well, fucking fair play for stating the obvious Siobhan. Last thing we’d want is our readers thinking is that we only publish this shit pretending there’s a ‘controversial this or that’, just to get them nice and annoyed.

Frame it so that the speculation about the boob job comes from another publication, copy and paste if needed. Or if you can’t get that just use some randomers tweets on Twitter”. Loud and clear Siobhan. Plenty of random tweets out there. Should be easy.

The subject doesn’t matter, our fine media betters do the same thing with every story. They start out with the conclusion then change the facts to fit The Narrative!. It’s what they do.

 

Let’s puppy blend for a couple.

This looks like an Acme-explosive kit to me. (now with extra anvil!)

Under the plan, the commerce secretary would designate the practice of currency manipulation as an unfair subsidy when employed by any country, instead of singling out China, said people briefed on or involved in formulating the policy. U.S. companies would then be in a position to bring antisubsidy actions themselves to the U.S. Commerce Department against China or other countries.

Isn’t that pretty much what we’ve been doing too? Keeping interest rates down and constantly printing more money so we can afford to pay off the huge debt Obama and the GOP ran up.

 

This looks like an Acme-explosive rioting kit to me.

For the past three weeks, Democratic protesters have swarmed Republican town hall events across the country, booing, shouting down and trying to embarrass GOP lawmakers seeking to gut ObamaCare.

In the coming weeks, grassroots conservatives will be fighting back.

FreedomWorks, the Tea Party-aligned outside group, beginning next month will be organizing rallies and urging its nearly 6 million activists to turn out at town hall events to ensure members of Congress are also getting an earful from ObamaCare detractors.

Those totally peaceful lefty rioters are not known to take dissent very peacefully and I think the used-to-be really peaceful Tea Party types are all outta cheeks to turn.

 

There are a bunch of chucklers today, some on purpose, some not.

Majority of voters oppose privatizing ATC!!!!

When did alexthechick become not a private person? I know I’ve never seen any pics.

 

 

High Praise! to Harvey for finding this.

In another sweeping move aimed at undoing the perceived damage done by the Obama administration, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday directing the Department of Justice to revoke all sixteen Thanksgiving Day turkey pardons issued by the former president during his eight years in office.

…“This morning, the president once again used his executive powers to see to it that justice is served and that the surviving creatures will be destroyed.”

Man do I wish Trump would do that. The freaking out by the media as America is rolling around on the floor laughing would be all about teh awesome.

 

Back in the 80s, Times Square was not a very safe place. It was full of drug dealers, hookers, sidewalk hustlers and the businesses were mostly sex shops with peep shows. At 20 years old, my friend and I were mugged there, just standing on the sidewalk waiting for another friend.

Then, Benito Guiliani showed you can tame the city and Times Square became all Disneyfied, the low-lifes moved off a few blocks, it actually caused a sort of, hooker-inspired gentrification in Hell’s Kitchen. The class of low-life there skyrocketed.

So how’s Times Square doing?

Times Square Mickey Mouse charged with stealing from tourist

Heh, so you can get mugged again but now it’s by Disney! That’s fusion!

 

We’ve all seen our fine lefty friends are freaking out over the most innocuous things, but this has to take the cake.

parotty

The reason it takes the cake is cuz you can’t have cake without milk!

Sorry.

You realize we’re less than 10 years from having a working holodeck? Can hot aliens babes be far behind?

 

First I’d like to ask a question, are Colts really three times better than S&W? I’ve never fired a Colt revolver but I really like S&W. I just don’t see how a used, stainless .44mag is $700 when it’s S&W but $1,500-$2500 when it’s Colt.

S&W is about $100+/- more than Ruger and I think that’s about right.

Is it just because they don’t make them anymore? Because I’ll tell you, unless the Colt comes with a happier ending than a S&W, I just can’t see it being worth that much more.

 

I wishfully hoped that they wouldn’t use all the terrorist-catching laws that were ONLY GOING TO BE USED TO CATCH TERRORISTS!!!!!!! on people who aren’t terrorists.

Law enforcement wants to charge a Perry County man with committing terrorist activity after he stole 911 communications equipment.

Frank Thomas Aldridge is in custody after breaking into a 911 communications building back on Dec. 9, 2016.

Aldridge found out he couldn’t resell the equipment he stole, so he threw it in a nearby creek.

I know, when I wishfully think I make an ass out of me and me. Especially when I wishfully think that gov’t folks won’t get all mission creepy.

 

France is trying to be my friend, I hope this isn’t just wishful thinking.

Leading French Presidential Candidate Emmanuel Macron has invited the entire US climate science community to relocate to France.

Thank you French socialist dude, I sincerely hope they take you up on your offer.

 

Romanians are wishing for a non-corrupt gov’t and thinking that they’re gonna have to stay serious to get it.  They’ve been protesting for about 2 weeks over

The decree, decriminalised the abuse of office in cases where the damages were less than 200,000 leu (about 43,200 euros) and was coupled with a mass pardon for non-violent convicts serving short jail terms.

What that means is that if a politician takes a bribe for less than about $50k, no harm no foul. And pols in jail would be let out.

Obviously, their gov’t is pretty similar to ours.

Despite the outrage over the proposed changes to the criminal code. the government is refusing to quit. It insists the public has misunderstood its reform bid

Yeah, we get that shit here too.

I wish them luck. Romanian pols might want to review history, Europeans do not get a Trump, they get a Hitler or a Ceausescu and light poles start to get decorated.

 

Via Cold Fury, we find this bit of hilarity.

A French street artist was severely beaten up in Paris after refusing to remove a work of art calling for coexistence between Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

When I mention the stupidity of those COEXIST signs, I’m called a hater, if you click you will see that the French media tried to obfuscate the issue, but it’s unobfuscatable. He should have stuck with the traditional form.

Fakenewser takes time off from fakenewsing to do a little affirmation/wishful thinking!

Headline

A new, liberal tea party is forming. Can it last without turning against Democrats?

I doubt it, why?

Grass-roots movements can be the life and death of political leaders.

Yeah, about that.

Political action committees that fundraised for President Barrack Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February, according to a Sunday report from The Washington Post.

 

It makes it funnier that the Wash Post are the fakenewsers praising the TOTALLY GRASSROOTS!!!!!!  group while they also noticed that Obama was busing in those totally grassroots protestors.

Back to the original fakenews, so long as you think the Tea Party a top-down, paid for, astro-turfed group of rioters willing to travel around the country to get their violence and stupidity on then they’re spot on. Which is what they thought the tea party was.

 

What I can’t figure out is whether or not Canada gets any US TV channels.

U.S. border guards would get new powers to question, search and even detain Canadian citizens on Canadian soil under a bill proposed by the Liberal government.

As we’re trying to limit the power of the feds here the Canadians are giving our feds more power!?!?!?!

Don’t encourage them you idiots! It’s only going to make our job here more difficult! Idjits.

 

Speaking of Canadia, this bit of Tolerance Love and Peace is hilarious.

While the men prayed, she (Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne V) sat patiently in the back corner of the mosque waiting to say the words many in the room were so thankful to hear.

The words they were so thankful to hear? “We will adhere to the tenets of your religion.” Actually, she said something else, but you know what they heard.

She sat in a corner in the back of the mosque while the men fucking prayed and she didn’t fucking leave. She didn’t seem to even realize they were making sure she knew her place.

 

As we watch California flooding caused by corrupt, CA pols… global worming, let’s focus on what’s important.

I think I can help with this question.

Headline on a story about of the the ‘discoveries’ that global warmmongers lie.

How can we trust global warming scientists if they keep twisting the truth

 

You can’t. They lie.

 

You always become what you fight!

In an impassioned plea, Mr Cook, boss of the world’s largest company (CEO of Apple V), says that the epidemic of false reports “is a big problem in a lot of the world” and necessitates a crackdown by the authorities and technology firms.

 

In Veeshir’s post, there are links to his stories on the blog, to get to Veeshir’s post, you gotta walk, the darkness, of Veeshir’s mind

 

First an aside. I’ve been reading a lot of Kindle books by lesser known authors, either using Kindle unlimited to read it for free or buying books for $2 or $3. I get history and a lot of sci-fi, including military sci-fi and there are a lot of guys writing military sci-fi who know absolutely nothing about the military, weapons or science. Not a blessed thing.

One guy I tried to like wrote about ships going .1c and yet, 1000 km was far away. I mean, he wrote that the enemy was minutes away and they were 1000 km away. Other guys have nukes go off 100 miles from the space ship, in space, and the ship is destroyed. The guy I was reading last night has absolutely no idea what a ‘sabot’ is and yet, he used the word approximately 4000 times. Another guy had an LT order his patrol to, “Put a round in the chamber and keep your fingers on your triggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” If it had been a book instead of a tablet, I would have thrown it across the room and burned it. If any LT in the history of ever gave that order his 1st sgt would have shot him in the face immediately I figure.

I know that people do stupid things so I should accept that, but when they have an entire Space Marine Corps acting like idjits, I’m done.

Oh well, at least I occasionally find a good book, like We are legion. We are Bob and BV Larson. His Star Force series, starts with Swarm, is very darn good.

 

Let’s Tube!

Puppy blender has a link that says

FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED: Americans don’t trust anymore, and that’s a big problem.

huh, I wonder why that is. I mean, it’s not as if everybody has found out that lying works. Aided and abetted by our fine media betters.

 

Minitrue sez “Nearly Half Of All Americans Think Trump Is Moving Too Fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(inhale)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So…… does that mean that over half think he’s doing okay?

finds that 47 percent of Americans think the speed of the president’s actions is too fast and 35 percent are satisfied by the pace. Another 10 percent believe it isn’t fast enough, and 7 percent report having no opinion.

Oh okay, so 47 think too fast and 45 think it’s right or too slow.  So basically, the headline could be that nearly half are pretty happy about what he’s doing but this is Minitrue!

 

Don’t forget, Trump has a lot of cleaning to do in the bureaucracy, I wonder if this is sabotage or just ignorance.

How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” Robart asked a Justice Department lawyer in court on Feb. 3. When the lawyer said she didn’t know, Robart said, “Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell.”

It turns out the judge, and Nadler, and everybody else repeating the talking point had it wrong. Last year the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest released information showing that at least 60 people born in the seven countries had been convicted — not just arrested, but convicted — of terror-related offenses in the United States since Sept. 11, 2001. And that number did not include more recent cases like Abdul Artan, a Somali refugee who wounded 11 people during a machete attack on the campus of Ohio State University last November.

Never ascribe to malice along that which could be adequately explained by malice, stupidity and ignorance! But I’m going with just malice on that one. Situational ignorance is what lawyers do.

 

The ACLU morphed from a civil rights group to a “civil rights” group so slowly I didn’t even realize it. From SCCop Blog.

  • According to a comprehensive new study by the University of Chicago Crime Lab, the city’s exclusive contract with the American Civil Liberties Union could be having a significant impact on Chicago’s crime.
Gee, no shit?
  • “This is one of the few dramatic changes where the timing does fit the increase in homicides and so it seems it would be rash to reflectively rule this out as a possibility,” said Dr. Jens Ludwig, the director of the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab.
Golly, exactly as we pointed out when we dissected the 70+ page report that killed the street stop. But what do we know? We’ve only been doing this for decades now.

So what you’re saying is that lefty grandstanding and willful ignorance kills those they claim to be ‘protecting’?

Whodathunkit? You know, besides anybody not a sucker of lefty talking points.

 

Speaking of lefties killing people, Berkeley!

The major student-run paper of UC Berkeley ran five op-eds Tuesday defending the riots on campus, and arguing that violence was an acceptable response to a speech from Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

Jebus. On the one hand, they’re advocating stifling free speech using violence, on the other hand, they’re destroying their own homes to do it, on the gripping hand, try that shit someplace where leftists aren’t in charge and find out that felony rioting and cold-cocking people is not consequence-free.

I wonder why they never come to Apache Junction to protest. I know I’d welcome them, there are a shitload of coyotes around here (my dog is outside barking at some as I’ve been typing) and they gotta eat too.

 

Okay, now I do not trust any of these ‘leaks’ but I hope this one is accurate.

In his first call as president with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump denounced a treaty that caps U.S. and Russian deployment of nuclear warheads as a bad deal for the United States, according to two U.S. officials and one former U.S. official with knowledge of the call.

Like just about everything Obama did, that was a bad deal for America.

 

 

I really have to wonder how lefties can doublethink their way to spending so much time and effort defending people like this.

diversity

 

How the fuck did Obama so screw up the world that now Russia is helping the Taliban to fight us?

Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, testified today that Russia is helping the Taliban

WTF? No, really. WTFF?

I’m actually surprised the remake of Red Dawn didn’t have us invading Cuba, shooting school children and making adult males stay in camps watching speeches by Ronnie Raygun.

 

Yesterday I was wondering if Tsar Putin I and Sultan Erdogan would have a remake of the Russo-Turkish war of the 19th century, why?

Under “Alliance of convenience” you’ll see the Putin/Erdogan alliance in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent condolences after a Russian airstrike accidentally killed three Turkish soldiers in northern Syria, according to BBC

The soldiers were supporting Syrian rebels in efforts to capture the city of al-Bab from so-called Islamic State, BBC News reports.

It is part of a broader offensive by Turkey to push IS and Kurdish fighters away from Turkey’s southern border.

Russia and Turkey, who back opposing sides in the war, have been jointly targeting IS in airstrikes recently.

 

It seems to me that there are a lot more ways for that to go wrong than right. Maybe Tsar Putin I wasn’t playing chess, he was actually playing checkers. Unfortunately, Obama was playing tiddly-winks.

 

Well this is a year or more late.

19-year-old Willem Pennings built an Arduino-powered machine that quickly sorts M&Ms and Skittles by color

We’re fresh out of Skittle-shitting unicorns.

 

The finish is gonna be Dave Barry heavy, but let’s start with something that’s making me contemplate the uncontemplatable.

A top lawyer for internet retailer Amazon is taking a victory lap for the company’s role in the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision to retain the temporary restraining order halting President Trump’s travel ban.

Yes, not shopping at Amazon.

I’ve been shopping at Amazon since 1997 or so, I just got “Kindle unlimited” and I’ve been enjoying it, but now I have to think that maybe Amazon can suck my dick. I’m at least getting rid of Unlimited and telling them why. If they want to join the culture wars, that’s their deal.

I just sent an email explaining that I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited subscription because I do not want to subsidize their politics and that it will take very little to get me to buy my books elsewhere. Man, I am very pissed off right now. Can nobody in the fucking world just do their business and keep politics out of it?

 

Eh, let’s Dave Barry.

Only in post-2016 America would this headline need to be written.

Headline: TO CLARIFY: IT WAS NOT HIS PAIN

Article: Vaginal pain helps exonerate man accused of murder

 

At any other time in the history of ever that headline would have been only funny, now it’s necessary. I’m not sure if that makes it funnier.

 

We all saw the link where some guy tried an illegal wire transfer and blamed it on Jesus, but I didn’t see anybody pointing this out.

A unemployed Lakeland man faces a five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $250,000 after making a $7 billion fraudulent wire transfer (emphasis me V)

7. Billion. Dollars. I have to respect crazy that strong. He could have gone for a few $mil but if you’re going for the gusto, go for the fucking gusto!

 

An orange alligator was spotted in Florida and this journalist did not work “Trump” into it at all! Impressive. The editor noted in the caption that the neighbors called it “trumpagator”,  but the journalist did not take a shot. That must have taken a lot of willpower.

trumpagator

 

Okay, I saw this link with pictures of guys dressed like this and I figured it was a joke.

gurk

Okay, so now I still think it’s a joke, just not on purpose. The one on the left is not the lamest, most ridiculous costume this guy makes. No, really.

gurkle

 

Since everything I know about high society I learned from reading High Times I have to ask, do people actually wear that stuff?

If so, where? When?

If women were wearing that I’d ask, “How much for half-and-half?”, is that just male-hooker wear?

I don’t really want to know all that much, I just get a little curious about ridiculous things sometimes.

Not a lot of cognition though.

 

When lefties get their violence on, it’s “Rowdy”.

Congressman Tom McClintock, a Republican from California, on Saturday faced a rowdy crowd at a packed town hall meeting in Northern California, and had to be escorted by police as protesters followed him shouting “Shame on you!”

And no arrests were made.

When conservatives do not get violent, merely quote the Constitution, well, that’s entirely different. (From the Age Of Obama)

Said Hart “I tried to express my opinion and tell them that my Constitutional rights had been violated. I began quoting the Constitution, line by line…

…When the Harts left the gathering, they were followed into the parking lot of the community center, and the same young man …took down the license plate number of her vehicle and said – “See if you are able to pay your property taxes NOW!”

Eileen didn’t understand what that shouted threat meant, until she returned to her home with her family.

When they arrived, there were 5 police cars from the Franklinville Police Department. They advised her that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations.

States Hart “For the record, both the police officers DID acknowledge that it was “an allegation.”

Her purse was taken from her and she was put into a “paddy wagon,” transported to the police station-

Her young daughter witnessed the events and was traumatized to see her mother being treated like a common criminal.

She was arrested and booked for “terroristic threats” and “contempt.”

At the police station, she was handcuffed to a chair.

And that’s why we have Trump.

 

Via David Thompson, we find this Brave Wymyn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who was at the Berkeley Progriot. Just so you know, she’s talking about Trump supporters, not the mostly peaceful rioters.

 

Exporting Our Values! Here we have folks turning scientific institutes into religious institutions.

A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report

While in Turkey.

Yamanlar College, a private school established by educators affiliated with the Gülen movement in the western province of İzmir, has been turned into a religious vocational school, part of a group known as “imam-hatip” high schools.

The library of the school was converted into a giant mosque and renamed the “July 15 Martyrs Mosque”…

Just like NOAA!

 

Scott  Adams discusses Ben Affleck and claims it’s an example of “cognitive dissonance”

Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating.

 

I’d say that’s giving old Ben too much credit. For cognition that is.

He just knows he’s smarter than the other person so therefore, the other person has to say stupid, hateful things or else Ben can’t keep his feeling of smug superiority.

I don’t know if cognitive dissonance is the best descriptor for that, I’d more go with “aggressively-willful ignorance”.

Especially since we’ve all been here

When you see that reaction in your debate opponent, you won the debate – hard – but you didn’t change anyone’s mind.

I’d say that’s the opposite of cogitating.

 

In Well, Duh News,

A transexual murderer who was allowed to serve his sentence in a women’s prison has been moved amid claims he was having sex with female inmates.

If Klinger’s gonna wear a dress to get out of the Army, don’t you think some guys might wear a dress to get laid?

 

Via Paco, we see that first impressions can often be wrong. A story about how the first time people see something they often get things wrong.

 

About 2,500 years ago, Hanno the Navigator became one of the first Europeans to see a band of gorillas. He had been sent off to explore Africa and had gotten used to bumping into strange and exotic tribes.

So when he found an island full of gorillas, he figured that they were just the funniest-looking group of people yet. Hanno wrote that he’d found “savage people, the greater part of whom were women, whose bodies were hairy, and whom our interpreters called Gorillae.”

He and his men tried to introduce themselves to the gorillas, but the gorillas weren’t too communicative.

I can just see them getting pissed off at the gorillas for being so rude. Since they specifically mention that there were a lot of women, they probably also tried to get a little frisky. I wonder how the gorilla-ettes took that.

 

The USS Gerald Ford decided to try out its catapult but they didn’t want to waste a perfectly good airplane in case it didn’t work right. So..what to do, what to do.

Fucking seriously?
