I know, no posts for literally weeks (in ‘tubes time) and two on a Sunday. Well, pretend this one is from Monday morning when you’re probably reading it anyway.

Marine Le Pen FAR RIGHT CANDIDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is in the next round against the “Centrist!!!!!!!!!” Candidate.

So what’s my prediction?

More investigations and allegations of not being sufficiently EUnuch.

For the record, I wrote that and then looked for a story to illustrate it.

European Union lawmakers could summon French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen to discuss the lifting of her immunity over the alleged misuse of European Union money, before the second round of the French election, an influential legislator said on Saturday.

French judges have asked the European parliament to lift the immunity of the National Front leader, who is a member of the EU legislature, to permit further investigations over alleged misuse of funds to pay for party assistants.

Bureaucrats do not like being challenged. The EU are weaponized bureaucrats.

I’d say that story did not just illustrate it. An artist’s rendition of what it actually did do.

 

Sticking with EUnuchstan, via Tim Blair we see this that isn’t all that funny even though it should very fucking funny. In an article about savages savaging their daughter’s hoo-has, we see this

Misunderstanding
The CPS has decided to take no further action in four other cases of alleged FGM…

In another, a suspect contacted an FGM helpline to request the procedure for his two daughters after misunderstanding the purpose of the service for victims.

 

He called the FGM prevention hotline to get help having his daughter’s FGMed, that would be hilarious as you’re discussing his jail sentence, but there were no charges.

De-fucking-spicable.

 

More on that Backlash Against The Muslims that always hits the Jews

While violent incidents of antisemitism dropped 12% worldwide in 2016, US campuses saw a surge of 45% in antisemitism, according to data released on Sunday.

Personally, I’d say that the reason “worldwide” is two-pronged.

They dropped in many countries that really hate Jews because they’ve killed a bunch and driven the rest out.

As for EUnuchstan, we can’t get any good numbers on anything from them. From crime to mortality to everything bad about them, they always fudge their numbers on everything so using official stats is absolutely useless.

I would bet they’re up there though, but since the firebombing of a synagogue is “workplace violence” or “unauthorized marshmallow roasting”, we’ll never know.

 

Now, I like Second City Cop blog, but I gotta disagree on this. It’s related to the previous post’s comment on police being upset about not being able to search and demand Papers from all and sundry.

The cops — members of a “saturation” team working to suppress violence in West Humboldt Park — said they pulled over the car in April 2014 because its taillights weren’t working. But when the police checked the names of everyone in the car, they learned that Franklin, a 45-year-old who struggled with a heroin habit, was on parole for drug possession. And they said one of the other passengers was a “self-admitted” member of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang.

To the officers, that meant Franklin had committed a crime just by sitting in the car: “unlawful contact” with a gang member while on parole. In Illinois, that’s an offense punishable by up to a year behind bars, even if no other crimes or gang activity occurred.

Yeah see, I get he’s a bad guy. But if I’m sitting in the back seat and a cop asks for my ID he can pound sand. I’ll probably end up in jail, but fuck him.

I’m sitting in a car, he has no fucking reason to Demand My Papers Please, with or without a German or Russian accent.

Now if Chicago let their law-abiding citizens keep and bear arms, if they didn’t give 2 months or suspended sentence to an armed mugger, in other words, if the justice system actually did something useful, they wouldn’t have to ignore the Constitution to do their jobs.

Just like Stop and Frisk in NYC. I don’t care how many “bad people” it caught.

Remember that Better 10 Guilty Men Go Free Than One Innocent Man Be Jailed (or whatever the quote) is no longer in play, we’re at Better 10 Innocent People Get Fucked Than One Man Be Free.

 

We all laughed at the Patriots fact-checking the NY Times’ ass when a NY Times journolister tried to get Trump riled up.

But what that really shows is that the first thing this journolister did when he saw a story that didn’t bash Trump was to try to figure out a way to bash Trump with it.

Trump is living rent-free in our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters’ heads even as they screech about how all the Trump supporters are Teh Stupid.

 

 

The rest is NY Post heavy. They really had an interesting day.

Noticing Something That Has Been Eminently Noticeable For 8 Years!

Political correctness is ruining our strategy to defeat terrorism

I’m not sure how many times they’ve run that op-ed, but they could/should have run it every day during the Age Of Obama.

 

They ask, “Why can’t the Clintons just go away?”

It starts off with, I’d say, something that just isn’t so.

Since losing the most winnable presidential election in modern American history, Hillary Clinton

2000 had that distinction.

Al Gore should have destroyed W in 2000, it shouldn’t have even been close. VP of a popular POTUS who had presided over a great economy and The End Of History!!!! and he still lost it.

Hell, if the Dems had nominated an actual presidential candidate in 2004 instead of another animatronic candidate they could have beat Bush.

Hillary, on the other hand, was only a “strong, experienced candidate” to our fine media betters. The rest of America just doesn’t like that bitch.

It’s mostly the same stuff about Clintons but this is funny.

According to “Shattered,” after a year spent crisscrossing the country, “Hillary still couldn’t figure out why Americans were so angry.”

You know that whenever anybody said anything about weakening America around the world, killing coal and other anti-blue-collar worker stuff or illegal immigration she told that staffer to stop reading Stormfront.

But this is the funniest thing I’ve read all day. And that’s saying something.

Stars such as Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand are fighting for column inches, airtime and party dominance as the Clintons stubbornly remain.

Elizabeth Warren is their rising star. Fauxcohantas. Someone who praises murderous, Chinese, commie dictators.

I have to admit, I hope next election Joe Biden does not let Hillary tell him to step aside so it’s at least Elizabeth Warren and Biden.

If we’re going to re-elect Trump let’s make it hilarious.

 

 

They always act surprised. Every. Single. Time.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. described a two-year probe that uncovered various bribery schemes, many involving expediters who paid off high-ranking bosses, clerks and inspectors in return for favors such as dismissing violations. The city staffers were charged with accepting more than $400,000 from the expediters, who act as middlemen for developers and builders, and from others.

Vance proudly proclaimed that all were indicted on felony counts, which carried maximum sentences of up to 15 years in prison.

City Department of Investigation Commissioner Mark Peters, whose agency participated in the probe, said at the time that the accused “did New York City real harm and now they must face the criminal-justice system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1” (Emphasis me. I may have added an exclamation point too V)…

 

So how many centuries of jail time did these corrupt NY pols and their bribers get?

Twenty people pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of giving unlawful gratuities or attempting to “reward official misconduct.”

Most of them were sentenced to community service. Even many who pleaded to felonies did not receive jail time…

…He was sentenced to four months in jail. Dwyer got community service.

Exactly. It’s not as if they put more than 10 rounds into their magazine or bought cigs in NJ.

 

In Chicago and Illinois they often throw out of power pols into jail, in NY, well, they do too sometimes, but it’s usually not the norm.

Right Client Number Nine? The man who was Bringing The Hammer Down On The Illicit Sex Industry who was actually just going after ‘his’ madame’s competition.

I will say that I absolutely love this quote

A spokeswoman for Vance said, “While prison time is an appropriate disposition for certain nonviolent defendants, justice is being served in these cases through the return of more than $300,000 to New York City taxpayers to date.”

I bet they spent $millions on the ‘prosecution’.

 

It’s not really all that funny how often in the 21st century some seriously horrific things make you laugh.

Doctor accused of telling patient sex with him will help her MS

A hospital specialist who had sex with a patient told her it was therapy, saying: “Trust me, I’m a doctor,” a tribunal heard.

A&E medic Kwame Somuah-Boateng, 43, bedded the woman in his sleeping quarters after she went to casualty with numb legs and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The patient, in her 30s, told a disciplinary hearing he claimed it would help her regain feeling, especially in her private parts.

That’s fucking cruel. Giving false hope for that disease shows a total lack of empathy and disregard for other people.

 

I’m actually pretty impressed.

The force stress calculations must have taken hours and it’s all terrain!

 

Have I cursed at this shit so much I’m just recursiving?

Eh, fuck it. Let’s see what the hell is going on. (spoiler alert: It’s lies and bullshit)

 

Yawn, once again we prove Trump’s “Unsubstantiated!!!!! Claims!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” but that’s not really the point.

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

Wait, isn’t Comey the one who wanted someone else to tell America there was no wiretapping of Trump’s peeps?

Just to show exactly how unfuckingsubstantiated Trump’s claims are, another link!

The FBI last year used the controversial “Trump/Russia dossier” as part of its justification to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, CNN reported on Tuesday.

They’re trusting CNN, which is usually shoddy journalism, but it feels right. And by that I mean it tells us what we already knew.

 

High Praise to Harvey for finding this next link.

Color me utterly unfuckingcaring with a soupçon of Fuck Em and a heaping helping of Ha-Ha

Due to this situation, the Soros-funded think tank said that increased deportations (us kicking out illegal aliens V) will likely increase violence in an already crime-ridden region.

In recommendations to the U.S. government, the group wrote that the Trump administration should “refrain from instigating mass deportations or harsher anti-migration measures” against immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

 

Exporting your vicious, murderous criminals to America: It’s not just for Islamic Shithole countries anymore!

 

Wait, murderous, commie dictators steal stuff from capitalists?

General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.

Once again, color me utterly unfckingsurprised. One point, it’s their country, their courts and their judiciary, that makes it perfectly legal.

I can’t wait until the murderous, commie dictators in China start taking Apple’s shit. That’s gonna be fucking high-larious.

 

So the murderous Syrian dictator had a little ceasefire/reconciliation deal. Since it’s the Middle East, you know what that means!

The L.A. Times is reporting that the Syrian government used weapons of mass destruction in a zone created by “reconciliation deals.” Rebels in other contested regions were given safe passage to the zone if they would leave. After the rebels moved they were attacked.

Your Shoelaces Are Untied!

 

I was going to scale these up in levels of “horrific” but I’m not sure if there’s a real ladder, they’re all pretty fucking horrific. Some are just directly so while others are more subtly horrific in that they illustrate where we are as a society and civilization.

 

This is horrifically hilarious. Our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters seem bound and determined to make Chelsea Clinton The Great Blight Hope!.

Hyping the entertainment magazine’s latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?”

Welcome to the liberal media’s manufacturing of “cool.” Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.

This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children’s nepotistic privileges champion the “refreshingly outspoken” daughter of the Clinton dynasty — who, at 37 years old, will receive a “Lifetime Impact” award from Variety on Friday for her “humanitarian work.”

That sad, drab, personalityless scion is just pathetic, I can’t even work up a dislike, which says a lot since I’ve been a member of the VRWC since before Hillary identified it.

 

This one seems less horrible, but this is an “Elite!!” college where our Elite Meet To Compete!. As a teacher in a few high schools, I’ve met more Drs of Lefty  Studies who cannot even speak English, much less write it. “This is where your classroom is at.” Sigh.

This is the intro, They call it “Hudson U” but for the record, I’d bet it was NYU, YMMV.

The author of the following essay is a Professor at a top-ranking, metropolitan U.S. university. The names of both university and professor have been fictionalized to protect the professor from retaliation.

So he cannot talk about what they’re doing for fear of retaliation. They are fundamentally incapable of change.

Just to be clear, most of my faculty colleagues are well-educated, bright, and dedicated teachers

The rest of the article belies that statement. Like this

Some of the faculty members with less than impressive credentials hold positions of significant authority in terms of curriculum development. They serve as chairs of various sub-programs within academic units, and have influence over curricula, both within and beyond the program.

Those are the people in charge. They’ll hire people even more stupider to make themselves look better in a positive-reinforcement that will (is?) oscillate (ing?) out of control.

In a more recent election for writing curricular chair, my competitor accused me in his mission statement of writing books and publishing essays. He treated these as blemishes or sins that somehow disqualified me for the position. “I haven’t written any textbooks. I don’t like textbooks. I don’t have a Ph.D. or scores of academic, scholarly publications to my name,” he wrote

So having the necessary skills for the job is bad. Elite!

Let’s end on this, I could do a full post on this article but it’s just not worth it.

I mentioned that I had received an email from one of the candidates and shared it with the committee members. …

The candidate could not write. I also pointed back to her application letter, which was similarly awkward and error-laden. My committee colleagues argued that “we do not teach grammar” in our writing classes.

There’s your problem right there.

 

Now, I knew why Ann Coulter wanted to go to Berkeley (for all the publicity and hilarity of violent, immature, fascists), but I couldn’t figure out why Berkeley wanted her to come. I mean, they’re not in the free speech and listening to other points of view business.

This link is really only horrific for this line.

Bestselling author and conservative firebrand Ann Coulter scheduled for an April 27 speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement decades ago and now the home of the Totalitarian Anti-Speech Movement, but the event has been canceled due to security concerns. That’s not stopping Coulter, however, who intends to proceed with the event anyway, according to The Washington Examiner. (emphasis me V)

That was then, this is the Glorious Now!, free speech is only for the right (left) people!

 

The most horrific story you’ll read all day (so long as you stop reading after this post I guess, it’s ugly out there)

A Georgia teen accused in the brutal slaying of her grandparents earlier this month partied with her boyfriend in their house while the bodies began to rot, according to officials.

Police said that Cassandra Bjorge, 17, and her boyfriend Johnny Rider, 19, sealed the doors and windows to contain the stench of the decomposing bodies so they could throw a party at the home in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

How do you get evil like that?

 

A little horrific chuckler.

It’s 21st century horrific, I call it, “Don’t worry, I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie!

A man fell to his death on Tuesday while trying to evade arrest by rappelling 11 stories down a Brooklyn apartment building using a rope of tied-together bed sheets.

Dude.

 

Nother one that could be titled, “I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie” where someone pretends to be dead to get out of paying a bill.

An elderly man has died while receiving a lap dance at a strip club in Texas…

The club’s manager said White was ‘unresponsive’ when his dance finished, and after the dancer initially thought the sexagenarian could have been trying to get out of paying his bill,

 

Or was that a Marx Brothers movie? Eh either way, if he had just stuffed his last $20 into a strippers g-string he might have met his life goal. You can’t take it with you after all.

 

How can you tell Britain’s economy is in the shitter?

Willy Wonka got towed.

 

Below the fold, some hottasery. It’s been a while.

(more…)

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!

Headline

Clinton campaign plagued by bickering

Alternate Headline

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.

More

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.

Ace learns something that we here at DPUD learned long ago, Gateway Pundit has hyperbolic headlines that don’t match the story.

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!!!!!!!!!!

GOP Voter Device

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.

 

FULL!!!!! BLOWN!!!!!!!!!!

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:

Fuck you...

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.

 

Two things.

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.

First, WSJ

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.

 

Back to the original, Stephen Green link where he links the Wash Post.

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?

How did it get so freaking absurd out? It’s pretty endy, but it’s not really funny. Just absurd.

I saw stuff about Obama To Meet With Merkel!!!! and I thought he might be doing some diplomatin’ without a license so I clicked the link.

Barack Obama will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her home country late next month for a panel on democracy.

So just the normal, post-POTUS, 6-7 figure, plus airfare, accommodations and gift bag, Senior Statesman deal. It’s sorta funny that Obama, and others apparently, think of him as a Senior Statesman, but while that’s sorta absurd what’s really absurd is the focus of the panel.

The two will participate in “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally,” which is sponsored by both the German Protestant Kirchentag and the Obama Foundation.

Yeah, Mr. I Never Met A Democratic Movement I didn’t Ignore, like the Iranian Student Protests and The Maiden Protests in Ukraine.  The Iranian student protest link is a hilarious, “fact check” by CNN where Romney said Obama was silent on the Iranian protests. CNN says,

Obama’s initial response to the protests became a source of controversy at the time, and his political enemies have brought it back up at various times since.

In the very first days of the Iran protests, the president did not weigh in publicly. After more and more images of violence surfaced, he condemned the actions of the Iranian government, and later toughened his talk.

 

They try to obfuscate that Obama only “talked tough!!!!!” after images of gov’t thugs beating (sorta like SEIU thugs beating tea partiers) and murdering protestors showed up on TV he said

“up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be,” he said, adding that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”
But, Obama said, “I am deeply troubled by the violence that I’ve been seeing on television. I think that the democratic process — free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent — all those are universal values and need to be respected.”
He said it was his understanding that “that the Iranian government says that they are going to look into irregularities that have taken place,”

Yeah, they got right on that. Giving out medals requires a careful analysis of their thugs’ actions.

Which statement, of course, showed he did his normal did jack and shit when democracy folks get beaten.

And shit was out of gum.

How can you blog when Obama, who spent much of his POTUSy actively damaging democracy around the world is on a panel about spreading democracy?

Sigh.

The other day I wrote,

First, the lie that they wanted to bomb anybody but Texas and Israel,

I meant it to be funny. While I think he wanted to bomb Israel and Texas, he was ready to bomb just about any jihadi enemy of Iran. like ISIS but not Hezbollah, anywhere, anywhere. The truth of the statement was that bombing Iran’s client state in Syria was not on the table. Especially since he had to use his flexibility with Putin.

 

This WSJ article linked by Stephen Green at the puppy blender’s shows a fundamental misunderstanding of “bi-partisan” legislation.

Democrats’ Conditions for Tax Overhaul Make Bipartisan Deal Unlikely.

Democrats getting their way is the definition of bi-partisan. It’s absurd to think otherwise.

 

I’m not looking for it, but I saw a CNN bit yesterday or the day before where their “neutral” reportage actually seemed to side with the Norks against the aggressive warmonger Trump. I mean, they allowed a bunch of unopposed statements about how Trump was being all bellicose at the peaceful Norks.

Which leads to We’re Better And Smarter Than You News:

I see Little Lord Graham talking about how the Syrians Sure Showed Trump!

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s decision to immediately resume air missions out of the airfield the US bombed is a big “FU” to President Trump, one senator said Sunday.

Like McCain, he wants to go to war all over the place. And then bitch about the war.

Trump said he blew him up over chemical weapons, when Assad uses more chem weapons get back to me. That would be an FU, which I’m sure would garner a No! FU! response. Be interesting to see if either Iran or Putin want that, but absurd to take the side of a murderous dictator against the POTUS from your party.

Well, ostensibly his party. It’s absurd to think that Graham and the rest of the permanent overclass could put up with a northeast liberal as a GOP POTUS who’s not pretty much Lincoln Chafee.

 

It’s funny watching Canadians seeing an invasion of entitled types from a third-world country and not being happy about it.

Canadians have empathy for refugees crossing into the country illegally but their concern over border security trumps (Heh V) all, a newly-released poll reveals.

Angus Reid Institute found that 50% of Canadians believe there’s a significant or huge risk of criminals and other dangerous individuals crossing into Canada through the unguarded border points now used by asylum seekers heading north from the U.S.

Almost three in every four Canadians want the country to focus its resources on monitoring and patrolling the border to discourage more crossings.

So you want to secure your border but we need ours open? Bite me, eh.

 

Anti-racism protesters  segregated themselves by race

That’s absurd. Pretty funny in that today’s totally tolerant anti-racists want all the same things as yesteryear’s totally hated racists, but it just keeps getting more and more absurd. Especially the reason for the self-segregation.

For white accomplices: Please keep in mind that your role at this protest, aside from acting in solidarity with POC students at the 5Cs, particularly Black students, is to serve as a buffer between students of color and the police,” the page states. “That means, if the police come, it is imperative that you stay at the protest with fellow accomplices and engage with cops should it come to that.”…

The instructions also describe an “accomplice meeting” at Scripps College where protesters could learn more information about how to handle themselves in various situations.

Nice to acknowledge the felonious feature of so many leftist protest by calling them “accomplices”, so kudos for that. Not sure why they thought having whitey mix it up with cops would be any better. Haven’t they been watching TV? You need at least one “person of color” beaten to get any airtime.

Absurdity all around.

 

This is totally absurd.

Should ongoing discussions in Salem materialize, voters would see a question on their general election ballots asking if a 172-year-old ban on dueling by public officials — as in, the old-fashioned way of resolving fights — should be erased from the Oregon Constitution.

Duels require a sense of honor. I can count American pols with a sense of honor on the toes of one hand. It would thin their ranks nicely so I’m fer it so long as there’s a budget for advertising when cowardly pols avoid a duel.

 

Illustrating the inherent absurdity of trying to get involved in Syria.

President Donald Trump ordered a Tomahawk cruise military strike against one of the 3,297 factions currently fighting in the Syrian civil war, sources confirmed today.

Just days after the Syrian government, one of the thousands of rebel groups, or al Qaeda terrorists allegedly bombed civilians with chemical weapons, Trump and his military planners launched missiles after mulling options that could potentially punish the perpetrators of such a war crime.

We blew them then up when they pissed us off. That’s all the dealings we should have with “regime change” in Syria. Whoever wins, the region loses. I’d be happier totally getting out and just supplying well-armed jihadis of all stripes to extend the conflict. A flypaper strategy where jihadis fight each other instead of us and Israeli school-children.

 

Man of Steel gets hard, feels his resolve weakening!

 

 

No really, it’s beyond anger-inducing all the way to, “You cannot be fucking serious!”

Let’s not believe some stuff.

First up, some Vindication! The other day, while writing about Trump bombing Syria, I wrote  Has MSNBC claimed he wanted to start a war with Russia so we could lose it? 

So how absurd is MSNBC?

A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war.

A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump’s campaign ties to Russia by provoking the missile strike. (emphasis his)

Heh. Trump help Russia, Russia help Trump. Stupid if you do, idiot if you don’t.

If you follow the link to the next Fake Newser link (Wash Post), you can see it in all it’s absurdity.

 

Here we are back to the Bush-era absurdity of anti-war protestors beating up pro-war folks.

Authorities say a peaceful protest in downtown Jacksonville escalated into a confrontation between demonstrators and their opponents Friday night.

 

So…..peaceful until it “turned into” a melee. Gee, I wonder who started said melee? The organizer was one of the arrested and this guy.

one man at the protest was waving a pro-Trump flag while several protesters “stood in his face while recording him with cellphones.” They said Crooms “began to yell ‘[expletive] the police’ and the protesters followed his lead.”

The man holding the Trump flag began to yell pro-police statements into a megaphone, police said, and Crooms went after him. A struggle ensued between police and Crooms, who was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

That is just so perfectly and absurdly 21st century

 

Speaking of absurd idiots, The Obama Admin!

Former Obama administration officials are pushing back against criticism of the former president, saying they proposed similar airstrikes in Syria to the ones President Donald Trump ordered this week, but were stymied by a Republican-controlled Congress reluctant to go along with the Democratic president’s plan

Okay, that’s just absurd on so many levels. First, the lie that they wanted to bomb anybody but Texas and Israel, then the lie that the GOP Congress “Stymied” Obama on any-fucking-thing. I’m not sure if they’re stupid or they think we’re stupid.

I know, it’s both. Sorry, I shouldn’t be so absurd.

 

Nuke The Moon Baby!

Diplomats can’t agree on what Trump will do next in Syria

Keep our enemies guessing.

I know I’m inclined to see it because I was hoping for it, but this is a good step on the way to a Nuke The Moon POTUSy.

 

Hillary just keeps getting more and more absurd. Do you realize she had a Dem Party operative “meet” her on a path in the woods so a couple months later Minitrue could write articles about how Hillary’s Come Out Of The Woods! (there’s like a billion articles about her coming out of the woods, absurd)

Even more absurd is Hillary explaining why she..we lost in 2016.

Over the course of her soft-focus conversation with the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof, the former secretary of state identified some of the reasons she thinks she lost to President Donald Trump….

Clinton blamed FBI director James B. Comey…

She also blamed Russia…

She blamed the hacking group WikiLeaks…

Clinton blamed the “weaponization of information.”…

She also jokingly blamed her chief Democratic primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and media…

“Certainly, misogyny played a role”…

It’s amazing how many things came together to take down this paragon of a perfect POTUS!

 

It might be absurd, but I’m actually for the exact opposite.

Democratic assemblywoman Deborah Glick of the New York State Assembly has introduced legislation that would fine people who do not vote

Considering that they keep electing NY politicians, I’d arrest NYers for voting. Aiding and abetting a felon is itself a felony! What is the law about a conspiracy that includes millions of people aiding thousands of felons?

 

Ignorance Is Bliss! only sounds absurd. Until you live it.

In a paper released [last] Friday by the New Zealand Attitudes and Values Study, researchers found that people who listen to, watch or read the news are more likely to display a dislike of Muslims, a trend that applies across the political spectrum.

It’s not an article about Islam without this de rigueur, 21st century absurdity.

The researchers also lament the fact that “media-induced Islamophobia” will become more severe if Islamic extremists continue to attack Western targets in order to “maximize the effects of media induced anger.”

People keep getting pissed off at Muslims because the media covers Islamic terror goings on.

 

It’s absurd that communism is treated as anything but a force for enslaving the masses to the will of murderous dictators.

Human trafficking in Cuba is an ongoing problem that the Obama State Department sought to downplay in its 2015 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report  reclassifying the island from Tier 3 to Tier 2 watch list and human rights experts at the State Department denounced its politicization at the time observing that there had been no improvement to justify the move. Nevertheless the Associated Press has once again gone a step further in fake news on Cuba by reporting that the United States “removed Cuba from a blacklist of countries that have failed to combat modern-day slavery after both countries formally restored diplomatic relations in July 2015.” This is not true and Cuba remains on the blacklist on Tier 2.

The Obama State Department’s last TIP report (2016) despite trying to minimize the Cuban governments involvement in human trafficking affirmed that “Cuba is a source and destination country for adults and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor. Child sex trafficking and child sex tourism occur within Cuba.” Furthermore reported on how the Castro regime “uses some high school students in rural areas to harvest crops and does not pay them for their work but claims this work is not coerced.”

I hate commies. I really do.

Via one of my favorite smells we see this absurdity that shows Pakistan is apparently introducing LSD into India’s water.

Now the Gangotri and Yamunotri glaciers as well as waterfalls, forests, lake, meadows and other environmental features in the area have all been granted legal rights as “living entities.”

The glaciers are among the largest in the Himalayas and feed into the Ganga and Yamuna rivers. However, they are receding at an “alarming rate,” the judges said according to Press Trust of India, with the Gangotri glacier shrinking more than 2,800 feet in about 25 years.

“The rights of these entities shall be equivalent to the rights of human beings and any injury or harm caused to these bodies shall be treated as injury or harm caused to human beings,” Uttarakhand’s highest court said in its ruling, according to AFP.

So they’re ‘persons’ and are protected by the law?

Well then arrest all the rivers in India for spreading dysentary (attempted manslaughter!), arrest the glaciers for causing global worming! Arrest the trees too, I’ll figure out the charges by the time you get them in custody.

Love the bit about the glacier, 2800 feet in about 25 years! At that rate, within about a thousand years it’ll be gone! And it’ll be all our fault!

 

This is the coolest thing. From now on when synchronized swimming is on, I’ll turn my tv upside-down.

Mostly the first, but some of the second.

 

Even if you’re not in favor of Trump bombing Syria, it’s been entertaining.

A little digression. Google is going to push their brand of fake news…stop FAKE NEWS!!!!!! using Snopes and Politifact.

I told you that so I could tell you this.

When Trump spit on Putin and blew up the Syrian airbase

US officials said measures had been put in place to avoid hitting sarin gas they said was stored at the airfield.

I’m not the first to notice or mention it, but is anybody watching cable news? Have any of them (besides, I’d bet, Hannity tonight) mentioned that Obama declared Syria CHEMICAL WEAPON FREE!!!!!!! and if you pointed and laughed at the abject idiocy of that statement…denied that statement’s brilliance and TRUTH! you were branded a fascist xenophobe?

Wait…A fascist sexist? No, you rarely get two -ists together. Fascist homophobe? It was some sort of -ist and a -phobe…Oh yeah, a racist Islamophobe, that’s what it was.

 

My expectations (and hopes) for Trump were a Nuke The Moon! thing.

The White House was quick to paint the decision as limited to deterring the use of chemical weapons, and not part of a broader military campaign to remove Assad by force.

“The intent was to deter the regime from doing this again, and it is certainly our hope that this has had that effect,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told reporters.

Blowing their shit up when they piss us off is a good idea. It would be a good accompaniment to my Syria strategy of free transportation for any jihadi, no matter the brand, with a free AK and RPG (while supplies last) when they get off the bus. They’d have to be self-driving buses, we’d go through a bunch but it would be worth it.

Oh, and major kudos for trotting out Jeff (erson?) Davis as spokesman. Subtle but funny, I hope it was on purpose.

There should be a position on Trump’s team that is just to figure out little things to try to get lefties frothing over stupid shit. They won’t all work, but when they do the results are high-larious as CNN freaks out over the color of the napkins at a White House Dinner.

Speaking of which, he should buy a billboard as close to the White House as he can and put TRUMP! on it. He can wait until they stop spinning from “Trump lied when he said Obama wiretapped him!!!!!!” to “Obama was right to wiretap that dangerous man!!!!!!!!!.” to get maximum froth. They’re sort of confused right now. He’s a Russian puppet but he just courted war with Russia. Has MSNBC claimed he wanted to start a war with Russia so we could lose it? Back in the 80s, right wingers thought that. there’s just something hilariously symmetrical about lefties saying it. I hope it happens but I don’t know if I expect it.

 

I’d hoped but didn’t really expect Nikki Haley to spit in their faces so well.

So now we get to find out if Putin, Iran and the Norks want a war with a crazed POTUS.

They wasted years, they had a free hand in the world and they waited too long to start their wars of conquest.

But that never stopped an invader before (see: Every war in every history book. Ever.)

 

Speaking of murderous dictators and how to handle them, China! As Trump was meeting with a murderous, commie dictator, he bombed another murderous dictator’s forces and now we see this.

The National Security Council has presented President Trump with options to respond to North Korea’s nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.

Telling our enemies like that is a good idea. I mean, they could have told Foxnews or the Wash Times, but he told NBC! They’re sure to trumpet The Insanity!!!!!! so the murderous, commie dictator would be sure to get the message.

 

Ace reminds us why he’s the man. 

Five Dead In Stockholm As Three Men Each Acting Alone Hijack Truck and Peacefully Drive It Into a Throng of People
“We’ll Never Know the Motive,” Swedish Police Vow

There’s so much ‘narrative’ in that headline you don’t even need to read the post.

Hmmm, maybe that’s how that started.

 

Does anybody else think things are interesting and weird?

It doesn’t feel as endy as last year, but I think it’s a lot more endy.

Maybe it’s just that 2 of 3 branches of gov’t have to pretend not to want to spit on us while the third is the only one on our side. Not having your gov’t actively go after you is  nice.

It’s also less funny out. I mean, while the media is pretty funny what with all the frothing and foaming, it’s repetitive and stupid so the entertainment value is low, while poison gas and war are only moderately funny as an object lesson in how much Obama lied and Minitrue defended his idiotic, not even plausible, lies.

 

Let’s see how the Elitest! of our Elite! are doing.

Harvard has a definitional problem.

Graduate students at Harvard University said Donald Trump’s presidential victory pushed them into an “existential” crisis of sadness and despair.

Existential. They’re not going to exist soon so they’re all sad and despairing. I wonder, does that make them goth or emo?

Neither! They’re ELITE!!!! They’re wizards.

Remember in the “Harry Potter” series when Albus Dumbledore is forced to leave his job as headmaster of the wizard school and the students banded together to form their own underground resistance?

Well, if you don’t, it was called “Dumbledore’s Army,” and some Harvard graduate students are trying to replicate it in response to President Donald Trump. Seriously.

Elite!

 

Nother definitional problem at that other bastion of Elite!!!!!!!!hood, Yale!

The [female teaching assistant] reported John to Yale upon receiving academic papers from John in which he referenced (and denounced) the crime of rape and rapists to illustrate Plato’s ideas of justice in the Republic. John was also required to take sensitivity training …

 

Sensitivity training because he thought about Rape. He’s wasn’t in favor of it, he just mentioned it! He’s a man! you see. When he talks about rape he LITERALLY RAPES EVERY WOMAN ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!!

In violation of Yale’s Woodward Report, which says the university upholds the right to “discuss the unmentionable,” Doe became a target precisely because of “Yale’s draconian regulation of his speech” in the philosophy paper,

 

This is a philosophy class! You can’t think outside the box we mandate!

That’s a nice touch. It shows how Elite they are.

 

Mea Dumba. Sorta expected, I’ve been sloppy lately.

Mike asks

Is there anybody the lawless Ogabe junta DIDN’T wiretap, surveil, or spy on?

To which I responded.

I’ll stick up for him.
He didn’t wiretap the Iranians, the Chinese, the Syrians, the Cubans or the Venezualians.

Mark corrects me.

Nor did he wiretap the Norks, Veeshir, nor ISIS, nor Al Qaeda, nor Soros, nor…

Yeah, you got me.

 

Ya Think?

MLB prospect shouldn’t have filmed himself snorting lines

Now that’s spitting on a gigantic pile of money.

 

I’ll take Secondary Considerations for $1000 Alex

Headline

Why the media want to bury the Susan Rice ‘unmasking’ news

Money shot after sorta rehashing much of the last month on any righty blog.

To acknowledge the clear political motive behind those leaks, and behind Rice’s “unmasking,” is to admit that Team Obama abused intelligence data — and that its media friends were complicit in doing so.

 

The last part of that sentence is absolutely correct, so is the first, so is the middle, but taken together they are a secondary consideration at best.

They are lying about Rice because they will not admit their God-President (He’s still their President! dammit!) committed a heinous act by spying on his political opponent, that’s why they’re complicit.

 

Last, and what I expect.

My movie review of Ghost in the Shell below the fold.

(more…)

I wish I saved that graphic from yesterday for today. I watched CNN for a while this morning and saw their talking heads saying stuff like, “What those reich-wingers are claiming Susan Rice did wasn’t a crime, we really need to focus on Russia and Trump!” when they could be assed to cover it. They’re mostly talking about some healthcare shit and RUSSIA HACKING THE ELECTION YOU STUPID AMERICANS!!!!!!

Watching Howard Kurtz on Outnumbered, he’s such a media defender, why does Foxnews pretend he’s a watchdog? I know why the Wash Post and CNN did so, he was defending their lies, but Foxnews confuses me.

 

 

Here’s someone who cares more about explaining CNN’s perfidy than I.

Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the “unmasking” of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report.

CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.

While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.

I just point and laugh and comment about their standard standard, but having people take that stupid shit seriously is probably a good idea.

 

To steal a bit: The NY Post, two papers in one!

First, nothing to see here!

Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser tried on dozens of occasions to learn the identities of Trump transition officials whose conversations with foreign officials were “incidentally” collected by US intelligence

Tried?

Nunes told reporters last month he briefed Trump on the documents because of concerns that Americans who were caught on routine surveillance were being “unmasked” for no reason.

The Obama administration shared the intelligence with officials throughout government because it feared the information would be covered up in a Trump White House.

Once the information was widely distributed, “intelligence officials” began leaking it and some of it appeared in media reports, including conversations fired National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Hmmm, seems she succeeded. Why the word “tried”? Remember, all journalists are trained in US universities to be lying sacks of journolist, it’s tough getting any that don’t suck the lefty narrative.

 

Editorial on same day (today, March,35th)

Do you suspect that the noise over Trump campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left? You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-national security adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials.

Again, nothing on the public record so far shows that anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls.

Maybe you should talk to your journolists about that there Mr. Editor.

 

Via Paco, we see this bit that reminds me of the 90s and why we have Drudge.

Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell (about Obama’s newly discovered felony)…everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop.

But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn’t need a ‘deep throat’ within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America’s corrupt mainstream media outlets.  As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.

A bunch of our fine media betters knew about Monica Lewinsky blowing Clinton in the Oval Office but kept it quiet until Drudge posted the story.

As I saw somewhere today, the media has been in cover-up mode so much it’s going to be hard to pivot to a defense when they can no longer pretend it didn’t happen or it doesn’t matter that a POTUS used the gov’t against his political enemies.

No, not the IRS. No, not the DHS. No, not the Coast Guard. No, not the…listen, it’s the intelligence community. this one is about the intelligence community not his Chicago-Machine feloniosities using other federal agencies. Geez, stay focused.

 

More reports that CNN will have to ignore and explain why we need to to ignore it.

The National Security Council has uncovered computer logs that detail the instances former national security adviser Susan Rice requested and viewed records that included President Trump and his campaign staffers’ names in intelligence reports from July through January, according to a report published Monday.

Worst kept secret ever!

 

In the past month we have learned:

The Obama administration openly shared classified information with political appointees about Donald Trump in the summer of 2015, and likely earlier. The citation.

Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign team last June, and was denied last June by a federal judge. The citation.

Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on a server at Trump Tower last October and was granted one by a federal judge. Ibid.

The Obama administration spied on President Trump’s transition team. The citation.

 

Well, some of us have learned that. There are many who knew all about it who are doing their best to hide it (see above).

 

Speaking of journolist, the story of the day is “O’Reilly sexual harassment symptom of Foxnews and Trump!”

First up, journolist tries to recruit the puppy blender!

Hi Glenn Harlan,

The recent sexual assault charges on FOX News star, Bill O’Reilly, is more reason to believe that the Trump era is leading to increased normalization of sexual assault against women. According to relationship expert, Wendy Strgar, “the culture of sexual violence not only remains rampant but is condoned at the top levels of our national leadership.”

I wonder if Wendy Strgar, relationship expert (she’s had thousands of them! Now she lives with her 12 cats while hoping to meet Mr Right!) has anything to say about a certain ex-POTUS who’s been credibly accused of rape while his wife held them down….destroyed their lives.

 

Next, CNN shows they got the memo!

There are women at Fox News who want to speak up. But they’re afraid. They’ve seen other women stand up for themselves — against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, against host Bill O’Reilly — and lose their jobs as a result. Meanwhile, they’ve seen those men defended and handsomely compensated by the company.

 

Puffhos got the memo.

Variety too.

The NY Times of course, they probably sent the memo. They are also pretty busy defending their God-President and his peeps.

This one is hilarious.

President Trump sought to turn attention away from the Russia investigation on Monday, saying that “the real story” was what he called a “crooked scheme against us” by President Barack Obama’s team to mine American intelligence reports for information about him during last year’s presidential campaign.

Don’t ever change.

I was going to avoid it, but I just can’t.

 

Not really all that important or new, but a good article on What If?

What if a Republican had presided over Benghazi instead of Ms. “At-this-point-What-Difference-Does-It-Make” Clinton?
What if a Republican administration had intervened to prevent Arizona from enforcing federal immigration laws?
What if a Republican had decided to enforce provisions of the Affordable Care Act selectively, omitting, for the time being, those that were politically inexpedient?
What if a Republican had made a deal with Iran that all-but guaranteed their acquisition of nuclear weapons within a few years?
What if a Republican administration had spied on a rival presidential candidate, who then, to the surprise of wise men everywhere, became the disfavored president-elect?
What if a Republican administration had illegally leaked, from classified intelligence reports, the names of private citizens to the media?
What if, what if, what if?

Anybody who says our fine media betters would handle it the same if Chimpy McBushitler had done this to Obama is a lying sack of ignoramus.

 

 

I’m done boycotting the Russia deal, let’s do some other news.

 

Jack Dunphy, nom-de-tubes of a CA cop, is writing about privatizing traffic enforcement and he’s agin it.

Mr. Pritchard recommends decriminalizing the traffic laws, thereby taking police officers out of the business of enforcing them.

 

I’m fer it, so long as they try it in California.

If you’ve seen Chisum or Young Guns, you’ve seen what happens when you privatize the police. Privatizing that will give us private companies who own politicians being above the law as they screw people over with impunity, watching CA implode over that shit would be funny.

 

ACLU is right but wrong.

Harold Jordan, a senior policy advocate for the ACLU of Pennsylvania, penned an op-ed for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday, which was reposted on the ACLU’s main website Friday, that said cops stationed at Pittsburgh city schools should be forced to continue working without sidearms…

“Having officers patrol the hallways with firearms sends a negative message to students,” Jordan wrote. “It makes many students feel that they are being treated like suspects.”

I’ve worked in two charger schools that had cops in the hallways. In one, it was necessary on a daily basis, in the other I only saw them being called into a class once or twice in a couple months.

What people should be upset about isn’t the fact that armed cops are there but that armed police are needed in a fucking school to keep the students from attacking each other or the teachers. Also, I’d bet a lot of students don’t feel like suspects, I’d bet a lot they feel more protected.

 

In Akbar Britain cultural suicide news, Easter Egg Hunt!

Theresa May has hit out at the National Trust for dropping “Easter” from its egg hunt, describing the decision as “absolutely ridiculous”.

It’s just so 21st century that something called, “National Trust” is selling out the nation’s values.

 

Yesterday I was wondering about the protests going on in Ecuador over their election, the lefty won and the righty’s supporters are claiming fraud.

At Babalu Blog, the place for all things Latin American Commie, they think it was fraud.

The people of Ecuador are refusing to ignore the flagrant fraud that took place during Sunday’s presidential election. For two straight nights they have taken to the streets to protest Ecuador’s wannabe dictator Rafael Correa’s brazen attempt to steal the election for his handpicked successor.

Lefties stealing elections is their M.O. so I wouldn’t be surprised. Look at what they tried to do here (see above).
