No matter how much I think I accept the ridiculousness of today, it just keeps smacking me in the face and I can’t accept it all over again.

ABOVE THE POST, OBSERVATIONAL, UPDATE I MEANT TO INCLUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t have cable so I watch a lot of Buzzer, a gameshow channel. Yesterday on Family Feud with Richard Dawson the question was about “Most admired athletes”

One of the answers was Bruce Jenner.

Made me laugh it did.

 

Now back to our post! Nearly in its ridiculous entirety!

I’d like to complain about something, why didn’t anybody tell me about CNN politics twitter feed? It’s the height of ridiculousness and even funnier than Iowahawks twitter feed.

Here they are going with their standard, A Republican POTUS is fighting America’s enemies, playlist.

Get it? Fighting them only makes them stronger!

Read the replies, they’re peppered with, “Fake news!” and “You really need to stop being so stupid!”

This one is a fine example of today’s ‘journalism’, they pretend that Senators’ rely on Obamacare for anything but graft and power over our lives.

Why isn’t McCain going to a VA hospital? He’s a veteran so should be all in on gov’t run healthcare. But he’s important, his life is important, so fuck us. That’s why.

 

More McCain being all mavericky!

Fuckhead. See, back then he had to get us to slap our fins and honk our squeezy bulbs, now he’s serving his real constituency, the DC political class, so he has to Get Trump!. He keeps fucking AZ and we keep electing the fuckhead. Fuck.

 

The Real Collusion!

Yup.

Daniel Greenfield at Doug Ross’ site has a post on this collusion and subversion of the First Amendment by the people who scream about that whenever they get caught lying and fakenewsing.

Once upon a time there was a liberal media. Like most left-leaning institutions it worked hard to prove its progressive premises. Democrats were good and Republicans bad. The police and the military were bad. Social welfare spending and diplomacy were good. Israel was bad and the PLO was good.

This was the thing we used to nostalgically call media bias.

We aren’t dealing with a liberal media anymore, but an illiberal media…

The illiberal media isn’t interested in winning an argument, but in silencing the opposition. It doesn’t just want to shout louder than you. It wants to use its institutional power to shut you up.

Yup, and if they have to ignore stories that hurt Dems, like all the collusion, hacking and felonyizing of the DNC, while fakenewsing and lying using anonymous sources  to Get Trump! subverting our democracy is the price they’re willing to make us pay!

Whenever I see a story about newsrooms cutting staff I laugh. Fuck them. They abused their position, if they want to be house organs for putative dictators they can move to Russia, Cuba or Venezuela. They’re already lying for China so moving there would be redundant.

 

Speaking of lying for the DNC, watch as they ignore more collusion to subvert our democratic, and Democrat, institutions!

The attorneys for 2016 supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who are suing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and the Democratic National Committee for fraud say they are “perplexed” as to why the case has gotten so little coverage in the media.

“This seems like an important case, as important as you can get,” attorney Cullin O’Brien told LifeZette on Tuesday.

See Cullin, can I call you Cullin?, that’s not helpful for Getting Trump!, that’s pointing out Dem perfidy so not news.

I wonder if Hillary will discuss that collusion in her auto-hagiography?

 

Trump’s not taking my advice in Syria, he’s cutting off supplies of small arm for jihadis, but what with the GOP fucking him and us maybe he’s going to undo all the illegal and extralegal bullshit Obama had to do to keep Obamacare creaking along.

President Trump on Saturday threatened to end key payments to insurance companies made under Obamacare if a repeal and replace bill is not passed.

“After seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!” the president wrote in a tweet.

“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” he added.

Add in a rider that McCain has to go to the VA in Phoenix and at least something would be right in the world.

If he reversed Obama’s Obamacare waivers by giving waivers to people who didn’t have them and taking them away from politically powerful assholes who are busy Getting Trump would be all about teh awesome as CNN explains how they were fine when Obama was illegally telling people they could break the law but Trump doing the same thing is the End Of The Republic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which leads us to a good question whose time is still coming.

As I wrote in the Last Days Of Obama,

Should the Republican Party Be Saved if Hillary! Wins?…

An even better question would be, “Can the GOP be saved if Trump wins?” as we spend the next 4 years with them calling their base a bunch of assholes instead of trying to figure out why the people who used to vote for them and send them money are telling them to fuck off.

I’m still not sure, the GOP is doing everything they can to piss on and piss off their voters so the jury is still out. Forming a new party would be tough but if the GOP continues to be unresponsive and rudely dismissive of its voters it might be necessary.  2018 and 2020 are going to be interesting.

 

This is what happens when a gov’t decides its voters are a bunch of assholes who need to shut up.

There is no conceivable way a majority or even a plurality of Venezuelan people would vote in favor of chaining themselves into the slavery and misery of a Cuba-style tyrannical dictatorship. So the only only option available left for Cuba’s puppet dictatorship in Venezuela is to force it through by using the only tactics they know: Violent repression and murder.

Hillary was their best chance for that last part, her enemies have a bad habit of committing suicide after all.

They’d love to do that here, that’s why they keep trying to take our guns. And that’s why we have them. Just ask Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and George Washington.

Their problem is that most of the people with guns are not onboard with the gov’t violently taking away our rights. That’s why the last three admins were busily arming federal agencies with no law enforcement powers.

 

Let’s look at the mores a key Dem constituent.

The evil inflicted largely on your dime by the abortion mill Planned Parenthood doesn’t stop at killing unwanted babies or even at selling their body parts. There is much more to the agenda it advances — for example, instilling twisted liberal sexual mores in 3-year-olds:

In new guidelines issued on the official Planned Parenthood website, the federally subsidized corporation explains how parents should talk to their pre-schoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, and transgenderism, even offering tips on how to tell if your toddler “is transgender or gender nonconforming.”

Saying your toddler is “transgender” should be grounds for losing your children and being shunned from polite society.

Toddlers are also to be encouraged to masturbate.

Seriously, they’re dangerously insane. That’s a crime, pure and simple.

 

The Arabian peninsula is choosing sides.

Four Arabic countries said they are ready for a dialogue with Qatar if it shows a willingness to fight terrorism.

Foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain met today (July 30) in the Bahraini capital Manama to discuss the crisis in relations with Qatar.

The Saudi-led bloc cut ties with Qatar on June 5 accusing the country of supporting terrorism and extremism, which Doha denies.

Translation: Be for terrorism by sunnis and against terrorism by shiites. That’s why the Middle East is such a shithole of repression and death, Our Terrorism is Good! Their Terrorism is Bad!

The Irish learned that lesson, I have a feeling that Muslims are going to have to learn it with mushroom clouds.

 

Australia committed a Hate Crime!

Four men have been taken into custody and are assisting police with their inquiries, according to a joint AFP and NSW Police statement.

The Seven Network reports 40 riot squad officers stormed a Surry Hills terrace before the explosives team found a suspicious device.

Fairfax Media reports the raids were in relation to a terrorist cell “and a bomb plot involving aircraft”…

Police have confirmed the raids relate to an alleged plot to bring down an aircraft using a “device” …

They seem to not understand that all cultures are equal. Blowing up planes is just part of their culture and we should not be so hateful!

Tolerant lefties are all onboard for certain types to be stopped.

Australia doesn’t have a Trump so they have to get people like Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt.

Staying with Tim Blair highlighting hilarity/despicability, Remember, Green Science is neither but it is viciously murderous in Africa!

“Behind every clean electric car there is cobalt,” reports the FT’s David Pilling. “And behind cobalt is the Democratic Republic of Congo.” And when the Congo is involved, so is terrible corruption and brutality:…

Did I mention the Democratic Republic of Congo? Some 60 per cent of the world’s cobalt comes from this central African country,

Methinks tolerant Hollywood lefties will not be making a movie called “Blood Batteries” anytime soon.

Nothing good happens in Congo. They’re still eating people for cripe’s sake.

Poor Africa, always fucked by tolerant lefties.

According to the company’s proposal to join a United Nations clean-air program, the settlers living in this area left in a “peaceful” and “voluntary” manner…

“I heard people being beaten, so I ran outside,” said Emmanuel Cyicyima, 33. “The houses were being burnt down.”

Other villagers described gun-toting soldiers and an 8-year-old child burning to death when his home was set ablaze by security officers…

According to a report released by the aid group Oxfam on Wednesday, the Ugandan government and a British forestry company forcibly expelled more than 20,000 people from their homes here in recent years, emblematic of a global scramble for arable land.

But colonialism! Haiku guy notes some murderous hilarity.

The kicker, of course, is that they are not even going to use this land for any useful purpose. They plan to grow useless Eucalyptus trees as part of a carbon-trading scam. These trees provide no food or lumber. All they do is grow. And blow up, when there is a forest fire.

So poor Ugandans are going to starve so Algore can buy a carbon credit to offset the emissions from his next flight on a private jet or if he decides to build another wing on his house. Nice…

Green Science! Destroying lives and standard of living while not saving Gaia but giving leftists control over $trillions and our lives for decades!

 

In Eastern Europe War News, totally not Russian military!

Russia is prudently escalating the situation in Donbas, while trying to remain publicly beyond the conflict. Volodymyr Groysman spoke about the country’s overhaul by his government. Arseniy Yatsenyuk called for a balance in power, reminding of his own political ambitions. Yuriy Lutsenko publicly criticized his subordinates in Dnipro. Against the backdrop of the parliamentary holidays, several parties tried to show off their activity.

 

I seriously can’t decide if I want to get into a war with Russia in the Middle East or in eastern Europe.

On the one hand, in the Middle East we have only one true ally, Israel, with one sorta ally, Jordan, so fighting there would be tough as we would have to fight everybody except the Kurds while in the eastern Europe we’d have former SSRs on our side.

But in the Middle East Russia would have to deal with ‘allies’ who would turn on them at the drop of a kefiya so they’d be embroiled with fighting their ‘allies’ almost as much as they’d have to fight us.

Add in nuclear war between Iran and Pakistan-supplied Saudi Arabia and Russia would be almost as fucked as we would be.

I have to wonder if Mattis could make it look as though were going to get involved and then turn around and point and laugh as Russia fights all the people they just got done arming. Iran is nobody’s puppet, Tsar Putin I is all about installing tsarlings. While Assad in Syria is a puppet-dictator, the mad mullahs are a lot of things, but tsarlings they ain’t. They’re used to installing shahs to be under the Shahinshah. That would lead to a different, three-sided war between Iran, Turkey and Russia.

Could be interesting. Although Israel and Jordan might have different words to describe it.

 

Where does the Constitution give the gov’t the power to get involved with these decisions by private enterprise?

If you think the government should do something about the cramped legroom on airplanes, you’ve got a friend in a federal court.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., on Friday ordered aviation regulators to consider setting minimum standards for the space airlines give passengers.

Trick question, the US gov’t and the Constitution are not related! If someone says, “There oughtta be a law!” the gov’t is happy to pass said unConstitutional law!

Obamacare put paid to any pretensions and pretendings anybody but minitrue had on that. They’re all about pretensions and pretending.

 

The only thing that would make this story better for me would be if they had asked him to autograph the stolen merchandise.

Hip-hop artist Zumbi of rap group Zion I and a film crew were robbed at gunpoint while shooting a music video in West Oakland on Monday, July 10. No one was injured, but the thieves made off with a $90,000 camera,

Hoist on your own petard is one of the leading causes of schadenboner so be warned.

 

Apparently lefties are unhappy that engineers are generally either conservative or apolitical.

Engineers baffled by ‘microaggression’ workshop at conference

A recent academic conference on advanced manufacturing techniques was interrupted for an hour-long workshop on microaggressions.

Louisiana State University hosted its second annual Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials (CIMM) RII Symposium on July 24, but some attendees who showed up expecting to learn about advances in engineering were surprised to find themselves instead “dealing with snowflakes and trigger warnings.”…

The post included a screenshot of the Symposium’s agenda confirming that a “workshop/panel discussion” on “implicit bias, stereotypes, microinsults, microaggressions, [and] Title IX” took place immediately before the conference broke for lunch.

“At one point they had us write a microaggression that we gave or someone gave us,” the post continued, providing several pictures of a bulletin board covered with the resulting sticky notes.

They want to make sure engineers support Trump. Not sure why but there it is.

Iowahawk has a solution!

Hell, I’d have them try to add fractions or try to figure out the third side of a right-triangle given two sides and all three angles. That would be hilarious enough. Asking them to solve diff-eqs wouldn’t be very funny to watch, it would be like trying to get a member of Congress to tell us which part of our lives they can’t regulate. i.e. Totally beyond their intellect.

 

I haven’t seen Dunkirk, but apparently angry lefties are even more wrong about that movie than even I thought! This guy helpfully reviewed the movie in a diversity lens.

Yesterday, I reviewed the new movie, Dunkirk.  Reader mrgarabaldi pointed out that there has been a kerfuffle due to the relative lack of non-white and/or female characters.  Well, I’ve done a bit of digging, and found out that Mr. Nolan had to cut out a lot of content to make the movie fit into his allotted length…

If you’re looking for African-American characters, have no fear.  Nolan used black actors for all of the German aircrews.  The bomber crews, of course, were female.
The u-boat captain, whose deleted scenes run to almost three hours, is a woman of south Asian and Filipino heritage.  You’ll know her by the black swastika embedded in her ruby nose ring.

RTW, short,T, it really explains things!

As we all know, our fine media betters are no longer in the information business, they’re in the disinformation, misinformation and affirmation business.

Let’s look at the ‘scandal’ where some Pakistani dudes were running rampant through Congress’ computer systems that’s apparently not happening

A Top Lawyer! is involved.

WELL, YES, THE FBI’S GENERAL COUNSEL IS A “TOP FBI LAWYER:” A top FBI lawyer is under an investigation for allegedly leaking classified information.

Just some lawyer dude.

 

The Dept of “Justice” is ON THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The U.S. Attorney Overseeing Imran Awan’s Investigation Is …

Steve Wasserman, the brother of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who hired Imran.

Boy do I feel like an idiot, I figured After Trump the DO”J” would stop spitting in my face.

 

You can tell this is all amateur journalism.

Imran Awan and his family made quite a bit of money off tax payers thanks to Democrats who kept paying him on your dime. Here is the total dollar for dollar breakdown from 2009-2016 for each of the Democrat House members who had #AwanBrothers on payroll.

No anonymous sources saying things that Get Trump!!!!, no innuendo and lies, just named sources and actual facts.

Jeez, it’s like they haven’t read the AP styleguide!

 

Remember, Trump colluded wi…no, TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TO HACK THE ELECTION!!!!!!!

BROWDER: And in the Spring and Summer of 2016 they were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official.

SEN. GRAHAM: Okay. So, these are the people that were trying to undermine Donald Trump by showing the nefarious ties to Russia. Is that what you’re saying?

BROWDER: Well, what I’m saying with 100% certainty is that they were working to undermine the Magnitsky act and the timing of that.

Yeah, we caught that shit. You can see from Graham’s question how the GOP is going to handle this, “They were trying to inform us of Trump’s ties to Putin!!!!.” We also know the Dept of “Justice” isn’t going to do shit. They’re too busy Getting Trump!!!!

 

Speaking of which, not all that important, I had just been wondering what they called Journolist these days. It’s Fusion GPS.

Veteran Washington Reporter Says Media Won’t Report on Fusion GPS’ Activities as a Major “Source” of “News,” Because If You Dug Down Into It and Saw Fusion GPS’ Emails With the Media, “It will look like an apocalypse”

I also wonder what ACORN’s calling itself these days.  Not enough to look, just sorta curious.

 

More investigation the Dept. of “Justice” is uninterested in.

The State Department was ordered to produce documents to Judicial Watch, and has been processing only 500 pages per month of emails uncovered by the FBI in its investigation into Clinton’s non-government email system. The State Department has produced 17 batches of documents so far. At the current pace, the Clinton emails and other records won’t be fully available for possible release until at least 2020.

On June 15, the FBI provided a new disc of records to the State Department.  It turns out this disc contains 7,000 records recovered from Weiner’s laptop which now must be reviewed for potential public release.

With this jaw-dropping statement.

Our legal team pushed for all these records to be released more quickly but the Justice Department’s attorney said that her State Department agency client shouldn’t have to push more records out because of supposed diminished interest in Clinton emails “since November”!

So…..before the election they decided not to investigate cuz she was running for POTUS, now they’re not interested in investigating because the election is over.

But at least Congress is throwing fish at us!!!!

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is accusing top political aides of President Obama of making hundreds of requests during the 2016 presidential race to unmask the names of Americans in intelligence reports, including Trump transition officials.

Yeah, we saw that shit. What are you going to do about it?

Nunes said he intends to introduce legislation to address concerns about the unmasking process impacting Americans’ privacy.

Just what I expected. He’s “GONNA DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”. You know what that means? Get out your squeezy bulbs!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

 

While I’m for this, I wonder who’s gonna do shit when their lawlessness is fully exposed.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was ordered to turn over documents related to Operation Choke Point late last week.

District Court Judge Gladys Kessler told the government agency it had to begin working with the plaintiffs in the case for a nine-month discovery period beginning on June 20, 2017. “There is no justification whatsoever for not granting Plaintiffs’ Motion to Commence Discovery Immediately,” Judge Kessler said in her order…

Under that operation banks were allegedly pressured into cutting ties with industries the Obama-era agency viewed unfavorably. Payday and other short-term lenders as well as those involved in the firearms industry said they were specifically targeted under the program.

It must suck being a judge in a case exposing the Obama admin or Clinton felonies. I mean, Congress is going to HOLD HEARINGS TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that won’t lead to shit and the DO”J” is too busy Getting Trump!!!!!! to do shit about it so you’re just spinning your wheels.

 

Lady Gaga explains why Trump’s order was a good idea. I don’t think she did so on purpose though. It appears she thought this was a reason to give military training and heavy weaponry to trans.

It’s funny how often lefties try to prove their point but end up disproving their point.

 

Dammmmmmmit. Missed it by that much!

Astronomers first spotted an asteroid about as long as a 737 passenger jet on Sunday and analyzed its path to determine it had made a close pass by our planet three days earlier…

It came within about one-third the distance between Earth and the moon, roughly 76,448 miles (123,031 km).

Better luck next time.

 

Awwww, poor widdle global warmmongers!

Most media outlets cannot be bothered to report something that dramatically deflates their narrative. So it goes without saying that when NASA confirmed that ocean levels have actually been falling for the past few years, the media would be more than silent.

Gaia just refuses to go along no matter how much you care.

 

News you already knew but our fine media betters tried to hide!

Yeah, I’ll have to narrow that down, a lot.

News about the NFL you already knew but our fine media betters tried to hide!!!!!

National anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season, according to a new survey released by J.D. Power.

We’re watching. They pull that shit this year and they’re really going to find out how fucking pissed off Americans are.

Sure, they might get some SJWs to applaud, but they aren’t the target audience for the NFL and they aren’t the ones who buy tickets and merchandise.

 

I always wish I had installed a Kago-Kam, some of the stuff he got into must have been hilarious to see.

Turn on sound. It enhances the experience.
 

Doug M has a p-shop deal on Hillary’s book. With thanks to Noman Nescio, comment 9, for the idea.

So to answer the first question, we fooled ourselves.

Shame on us.

 

Does the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party want a revolution so they can get their emergency powers on?

I thought it was ridiculous at first, but the evidence just keeps mounting.

update below: I moved the gif, I had it in the wrong place. Now, back to our post!

Nother important, The Book We All Want To See!!!!!!!, Update!!!!!!!!! graphic stolen from DougM and his superior P-shop skills!

 

Now Really  Back To Our Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For years we’ve been discussing Failure Theater  and throwing fish at us to get us riled up to FIGHT OBAMA!!!!!!, but were called unhelpful, Nazi and Tea Partier. Turns out, we were actually two of the three.

“There’s no denying that he misses all of it,” says Cantor’s former deputy chief of staff, John Murray—a sentiment the ex-congressman himself confirms. When he talks to Boehner, Cantor tells me, Boehner will say something to the effect of “I am so glad I’m not there dealing with those mm-mm-mms”—those pesky Freedom Caucus members whom many in the GOP hold responsible for sparking the party’s new populist flavor and egging on the anger that led to Trump’s election.

Unhelpful in that we noticed GOP sliminess and Tea Partier because we wanted smaller gov’t. The Nazis, of course, were mostly killed off decades ago but their ideological descendants are the ones who want the gov’t to tell private enterprise how to do business.

But Cantor goes that extra slimy step.

 Not Cantor. “I never felt like that,” he says.,,

After seven years of pledging they could dismantle Obamacare, if only they had control of Congress and the White House, Republicans…

Asked if he feels partly responsible for their current predicament, Cantor is unequivocal. “Oh,” he says, “100 percent.”

He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.”

Ride the wave! The voters are too stupid to understand!!!!!!

He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.

Everybody should be embarrassed over every arf they ever gave.

A graphic representation

 

So… should we call the new party the Constitution Party or the Fuck DC Party? I keep going back and forth. I could be convinced to call it Trump’s Party just to freak people out, so long as he has no power in the party, he is a northeast liberal after all.

 

So…. as they were lying to us and not fighting Obama, what was Obama doing?

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Expanding the police state tactics the GOP and the Dems want. Yeah, we saw that shit.

With the Dept of “Justice” so focused on getting Trump and fixing the last election it’s funny that with all the spying and Big Brothering they couldn’t get any serious dirt on Trump.

That should tell you a lot about both Trump and the fuckheads who are busy trying to destroy the last vestige of the rule of law in America.

 

So…. what other slimy crap was the GOP ignoring while not watching what Obama was doing and not doing what they’ve repeatedly vowed to do?

Testimony of Thor Halvorssen to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

In 2012 I began researching a Venezuelan corruption scandal that also involved U.S. banks, companies, and even U.S. courts. This story should have received extensive exposure on the front pages of America’s national newspapers. Fusion GPS, however, was hired to spike these stories… Even though it was clearly acting as a public relations counsel on behalf of a foreign principal, Fusion GPS never registered under FARA and was able to engage in nefarious activities without public scrutiny…

Although shielding their clients from investigative reporting was an important part of Fusion GPS’s campaign, it was by no means the only thing they did for Chávez’s cronies. Alek Boyd, a prolific investigative journalist based in London who had published extensively about Derwick’s corruption, was targeted with false accusations of being a notorious pedophile, a convicted drug trafficker, a car thief, and an extortionist. Rather than backing down after these items appeared about him online, Mr. Boyd increased his scrutiny of Derwick. Weeks later, in an unsolved crime, three men broke into Mr. Boyd’s home, stole his computer equipment, and placed photographs of his daughters, taken with a telephoto lens, into the pockets of his raincoat. Mr. Boyd subsequently received a hand-written anonymous letter threatening his daughters with rape.

Since they also are important in Get Trump, they have unqualified immunity for all criminal acts.

 

Speaking of unqualified immunity for criminal acts, anybody related to the Democrats and/or Getting Trump.

Democrat IT Spy Tries To Run To Pakistan: We Connect Some Dots For You

Since our fine media betters are far too busy creating fake news from lying anonymous sources, read that. You can tell it’s not real journalism as they use named sources and publicly available information.

Amateurs.

Now this surprises the hell out of me!

GO FIGURE: Busted Pakistani IT Staffer for the DNC Lawyers Up With… Clinton Cronies

Huh, I thought they were all working for Mueller.

 

They banned guns at George Washington’s estate. A right the man fought for and they’re pissing on it. In Virginia. The home of Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison and the aforementioned George Washington.

I got out just in time.

Meanwhile, in Florida,

Imagine you’re a fully-armed Adam Putnam, Florida’s current Agriculture Commissioner and a strong contender for governor, where do you go out to eat? Well, for starters you tell your staff to take you to a place where you can pack heat and simultaneously eat meat.

Awesome. He’s like Jeb, GOP Voters Are Racists, Bush or Charlie Crist only opposite.

 

I linked Blazing Cat Fur yesterday but didn’t link the source of the article, when I saw the article later and read it I realized I’d missed the most ridiculous part of the thing.

Along with their bold image, Clemmer wrote a poem about their first period.

By “their” they mean, “This guy who’s pretending to be a woman.” So…. did he stab himself to get his period?

Here’s what I missed.

Clemmer describes themself as an activist in the menstrual health space and has created a character called Toni the Tampon which aims to help break down the stigma around periods.

No, really. There is “activist in menstrual health space” and “Toni the Tampon” in the same sentence.

Also, there is “activist in menstrual health space” in a sentence and “Toni the Tampon” in a sentence.

 

Daily Mail fact-checks Snopes

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse…

But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website’s version of events – including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

So…”Mostly False”.

Yeah, we’ve been noticing that since at least when they lied about Swift Boat Vets to try to get J Effin Kerry elected.

 

Was this even a question?

European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migrant crisis have seen a collapse in illegal migration, while unprotected states have seen it increase.

You still need people with balls on the other side (Hey China! Say hi to the Mongols for me!), but I’m pretty sure Hadrian showed us that walls work if you do have balls.

 

Why is Chicago called Second City?

The link’s dead, but in 2013 I wrote about

I love this one too. So NYC has a rat problem, just like any other hundreds of year old city with moldering, decaying sections, docks and underground areas, so they’re looking to fix it. A laudable goal, too bad it’s NYC pols who are in charge.

They’re going to sterilize female rats, which will mean they’re going to spread sterilizing stuff around the city.

I don’t know exactly how that’s going to fuck things up, but I do know that it will fuck things up and it won’t sterilize all the rats so all it will do is fuck things up without actually solving the problem. It will require a fix for whatever that fix fucks up.

I couldn’t find any results except in restricted areas, so I have no idea what it screwed up.

But that’s not the point, in 2017 we see

Chicago has tried just about everything to control a burgeoning rat population fueled by a construction boom and a mild winter. None of it has worked in a city seemingly overrun by the rodents.

Now, City Hall is trying something old and something new: A poison designed to make rats infertile, and dry-ice that produced promising results in parks and medians before the city was forced to stop the rat-suffocation experiment after learning the dry ice had not been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Second City indeed.

Good luck with that. I seriously wonder what horrible thing it’s going to accomplish since they cannot possibly do anything useful with moldering underground areas that have been breeding rats since before that cow burned the city down.

No, not the Golden Cow who left to try to burn the nation down, Mrs. O’Leary’s cow (who got a bum rap!).

 

Via  Zilla of the Resistance* we see something I didn’t know and it’s fucking awesome.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he (Wrong Way Corrigan V) filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?”

Awe-fucking-some! It’s all Americans’ God-Given Right to risk our own lives. With the Battle Cry: Hold My Beer!

*She’s not part of the nazi/leftists ‘resistance’, she’s been resisting the nazi/leftists for a long time. 

 

The Sun, driver of our climate, is just refusing to play the old Warmening Game.

Unlike the dude above pretending to be a woman, the Sun ain’t spotting.

One sun spot.

So not only does Gaia hate Al Gore, the Sun does as well.

It’s weird out there, usually I can spot a theme each day but today I can’t, not sure if it’s me or if it’s just that things are so all over the place.

Let’s start with You Will Be Made To Care!

Here we have NJ xesplaining to teens.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation Friday requiring the state to give guidance to public schools about policies for transgender students, including blocking the schools from forcing the students from using bathrooms that conflict with their gender identities.

I’m sure HS students are mature enough to treat this with the respect and decorum it deserves.

I look forward to Dress Thursday where the football players all wear dresses to use the girl’s bathroom and locker room every Thursday and it will be a hate-crime if anybody tries to stop them.

I’m surprised that’s in NJ, sure they’re solidly Democrat but I figured that was more a corruption thing than a lefty thing. It’s funny that the GOP governor signed that into law. He’s a perfect northeast Republican in the mold of Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-DC).

Which reinforces Harvey’s point that we’re the RINOs, not them.

I think I’m actually the RINO.

I say that because I’m finding more and more that the Republicans aren’t the conservatives. Being a conservative and aligning yourself with a Republican doesn’t make Republicans conservative. It just means you’re aligning with the least liberal, least horrible of the viable options.

I don’t really want to take up the label “RINO” because of what it has represented. But, the reality is, the Republican Party isn’t a bunch of conservatives. But, a bunch of conservatives vote for the Republicans.

Yup.

 

I’m not surprised about Minnesota though.

A recently approved Minnesota Department of Education “toolkit” instructs schools to isolate students who are concerned about sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with transgender students.

Room 101 For You!

I will say I’d bet that makes a lot of students see exactly how morally and intellectually bankrupt lefties are when they’re forced to believe what their betters demand.

 

I used to tutor HS kids in math because AZ students had to pass the AIMS test. It was HS math, heavy on algebra and geometry.

They canceled it because so many kids could not graduate HS because they couldn’t pass it. It was depressing trying to teach kids how to do math when they used their fingers to add 5 to 17 and a calculator to multiply 10*7.

In today’s exciting episode, CA has gone AZ one better.

The chancellor of the California community college system has stated that institutions’ algebra requirements are “the biggest barrier” for “underemployed or unemployed Americans,” and as such is … a civil rights issue.

So you can have a college degree without algebra. Sigh. I’m sure that’ll make people happy to hire CA graduates.

It’s not a civil rights issue, it’s a community issue. Too many communities in our nation do not prize education. It’s absolutely not a “discrimination” deal or else Jewish people would have the same problems.

This is the shit that will get Trump’s supporters pissed off.

First, we have the State Dept derping.

Officials in the Trump administration’s State Department are standing by a recent report criticized by Congress that blamed Israel for terror attacks and claimed Palestinians rarely incite violence, telling the Washington Free Beacon that it remains unclear why terrorists engage in violent acts.

Trump and Tillerson should have slapped that shit down publicly, loudly and rudely. But they didn’t.

There’s a petition at the White House calling for an end to the gov’t stealing property from people not convicted of a crime.

 

If the media really wanted to Get Trump they’d hit him for shit like that, but they don’t understand how anybody could be upset about being evenhanded between murderous terrorists and a liberal democracy  or against the gov’t Taking Money From Criminals (who haven’t been convicted of a crime) so they’re busy lying about him.

 

Here we see believing lefty fantasies has immediate consequences.

The meltdown in Venezuela’s currency is deepening as a crippling dollar shortage and a threat of oil sanctions take their toll on the economy. The black-market rate for the bolivar traded weaker than 8,700 per dollar for the first time, according to dolartoday.com on Friday, compared with the official rate of around 10 and a more widely used alternative rate of 2,757.

What does that mean for investors?

That’s creating an illusion for foreigners observing the country’s stock market, which appears to be valued at $2.57 trillion — bigger than Germany’s, France’s, India’s or Canada’s — but is worth only $3 billion based on the black-market rate.

Like China, if you believe the official numbers you will be boned.

That’s about perfect.

 

Arguing With Headlines!!!!

EU Indecision Worsens Italy’s Migrant Crisis

There’s a difference between “indecision” and “slowrolling because you want the current system to stay in place.”

 

But we’ve been told that Muslim women would choose the Islamic body sack for women!!!! For Freedom!!!!!

Women burn burqas and men shave beards to celebrate liberation from Isis in Syria

It’s funny how often that’s the first thing women do when freed from subjugation. Although forcing the women to shave their beards is a little far.

 

I was into Spicer at first but the questions go so ridiculous that the press conferences got very boring so I won’t miss him much. I will miss Sean Spicier.

He notices reality in the funniest way.

Faceblock can’t be assed to stop people calling for death to Trump and Republicans or ISIS but attack a preferred group and you’re gone.

You just can’t make this stuff up, Muslim banned from Islamophobia in a flagging campaign by radical Muslims who think he is the wrong kind of Muslim.

Mudderpockers.

 

 

I’d say this says more about the voters

She isn’t “in charge” of that district, that’t the local govt’s job. Who the same people keep electing.

In other words, they vote for people who leave their district looking like that and they also vote for Sheila Jackson Lee. That’s on them.

While I dislike these assholes I don’t blame NY pols for being blatantly corrupt and useless, I don’t blame John McCain for being McCain, I didn’t blame Reid for being so despicable, I blame the people who vote for them.

Up twinkles?

Once again I get mad at lefties for ruining a perfectly good joke. If I had done that it would have been funn…wait, it’s funnier that it’s serious!

Nevermind.

 

See? It was all over place and it just sorta stopped instead of ending.

Not sure if it’s me or the world.

I blame…..uhhhh…… me!

I know, that’s so 19th century.

Slightly used, somewhat scorched, great for riding!

 

First, a little self-reference! The Day Before The Day After Obama I linked Cold Fury who linked Rush who said this

RUSH: This John Lewis business, Trump… I’m telling you, folks, the guy… They just can’t intimidate him, they can’t scare him, they can’t shut him up. He’s back tweeting about John Lewis. Now, you would think that after the press barrage of the last couple of days their effort to shame Trump for, “How dare you attack this man who was beat up on the Pettus Bridge in Selma 50 years ago? How dare you attack him! How dare you?” Trying to shame Trump. “You attack John Lewis, civil rights icon?” So Trump tweets out, “John Lewis lied. He said mine is the first inauguration he’s not gonna attend.

“He didn’t attend the George W. Bush inauguration. John Lewis lied.” Can you say the media is having a cow? My gosh, “Trump doubled down on it!” And the John Lewis office had put out a statement: Yes, that’s true. Congressman Lewis did boycott the inauguration of George W. Bush because he also didn’t think that election was legitimate. Trump was right. So this is the Trump pattern. Do something, the press has a cow, and Trump doubles down. He doubled down. And then, do you know he had a meeting yesterday with Martin Luther King’s son at Trump Tower?

And I wrote

The awesomeness that will hopefully be our future…

It’ll be very entertaining no matter what.

Just as entertaining as I’d hoped, just as pugnacious as I’d hoped and, just as  we all watched during the election and are still seeing, all the right people are still fighting him.

Speaking of which, I wuz wrong in that post

Speaking of Megs, is she working yet? I can’t find anything online about it. Once she’s at NBC, I do look forward to lefties’ about-face on her being Eva Braun.

I also look forward to her daily OUTRAGES!!!!!! about Trump, NBC probably has that in the contract.

While she tried the daily OUTRAGES!!!!! about Trump and whatever lie minitrue whopped up and while she’s not Eva Braun anymore, she’s mostly being ignored because she’s not useful anymore as a Foxnews Personality Who Hates Trump. Now she’s just another Never Trumper but she doesn’t have the required Leftist Toleration and Mostly-Peace that’s required. I should have seen that coming, I just keep expecting some sort of logic and consistency from lefties. I know, I’m embarrassed for myself.

 

Richard Fernandez, Wretchard of days gone by, writes,

Mark Leibovitch, chief national correspondent for the NYT Magazine recorded his impressions of Washington DC,  the town that melted down.  He paints a portrait of Sean Spicer trying to survive “in the shadow of a capricious force”.  He sketches John McCain, in a permanent funk “traveling the globe to the point of weariness, seemingly on a personal mission to reassure allies unnerved by Trump.” He describes the institutional Republicans walking around looking “as if they were bracing for a chandelier to drop on their heads”.  Most compelling of all are cameos of the bit players: the staff members, lobbyists, newspeople, policy wonks in permanent agitation, seeking almost religious consolation in the “old-normal rituals” of a world gone by — like the Congressional baseball game — only to see them turned into a shootfest by a Bernie groupie…

So-called change elections came and went — Obama in 2008, Tea Partyers in 2010 — but nothing seemed to change, except that the people involved seemed to grow richer. Washington kept celebrating itself while the rest of the country became more and more disgusted. The book’s original subtitle, ‘The Way It Works in Suck-Up City,’ reflected a city of norms, fixed positions and predictable guidelines. This was a static system, and you could always figure out how to game it if you stuck around or paid someone who did. This was the Swamp that Trump had promised to drain.”(emphasis me, V)

And for that, he must be opposed, reviled, lie about and fakenewsed at. It’s just axiomatic. RTWT, it’s worth it.

Wretchard is another guy like David Thompson who analyzes what’s going on without letting their preconceptions color what they write.  I also lose and find him again a year or 3 later and realize I should stop losing his links.

In my defense, I don’t ‘upgrade’ computers so much as get a new one when the last one goes belly up so I lose the stuff on that previous computer. That’s why I clicked a PJ Media link from Instapundit, something I’ve learned to not do as the articles are just glomming onto the puppy blender’s readers and rarely match the headline, or they’re just lame link bait, like the one about The Best 4th Of July movies that had Independence Day and didn’t have The Devil’s Disciple with Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and Sir Laurence Olivier.

Which movie is finally available on DVD, get it, you’ll enjoy it. Next to 1776 it’s probably the most accurate depiction of Revolution-era Americans you’ll see in film. I don’t like Olivier’s Burgoyne though. He’s far too much a typical lefty “cynic”. Which isn’t really a cynic, it’s more of a smug, disdainful, superior jackass who puts others down for trying to do their jobs but doesn’t offer any useful suggestions for how to better proceed. All his failings are someone else’s fault.

 

Ranged on our side? The Conservative Elite!!!!!!!!!, which, like every other of today’s elite, are elite in their minds only.

The rise of Donald Trump not only highlights the fecklessness of the political class but also the blindness of the conservative intellectual elite…

As statesmen deploy their judgment in order to secure the interests of the people, men of thought should be able to provide them a solid and accurate account of present realities and possibilities for the future. As Lincoln stated in the opening of the “House Divided Speech”: “If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to do it.”

See, our Elite!!!!! do not accept current reality and distort the past so they cannot be ‘men of thought able to provide a solid and accurate account of present realities’, they’re too busy trying to keep their power, prestige and income derived from graft.

 

Speaking of our Elite!!!!!!!!! denying reality:  Free Speech!!!!! and the suppression thereof.

The University of California, Berkeley’s decision to block another conservative lecture, this time featuring popular author Ben Shapiro, rightfully sparked a fresh round of disgust among free speech advocates on Wednesday…

During a Senate hearing last month, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, criticized the school in his remarks decrying the state of free speech in higher education. In response, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., ardently defended her state’s flagship university.

“I know of no effort at Berkeley, at the University of California, to stifle student efforts to speech,” she said at the time, continuing, “And if there is a specific effort, I would certainly appreciate it if people brought that to my attention.” (emphasis me again, V)

I guess she doesn’t have a tv.

Which leads to this.

Over the last week or two I keep seeing more graphics that say something like “A Fascist (or homophobe or islamophobe or…) is someone who wins an argument with a liberal

That was the before, we’re in the Now.

Attempts to argue are macroaggressions and not to be tolerated by the forces of Tolerance and Mostly-Peace.

 

I like Legal Insurrection, but really, pay attention!

Six months into Trump’s presidency and Congressional Republicans have fumbled the Obamacare repeal ball four times (by my count).

Saying they “fumbled” it is like saying the 1919 White Sox had a bad couple of games in the Series.

McConnell is part of the problem, he’s stifling a solution. It’s not all that hard to figure out. All he has is 

and all he tries to do is get someone like Trey Gowdy to throw fish at my face.

So what the heck is going on?

No one seems to know exactly, not even Senate Republicans.

Seriously? Anybody paying attention knows that’s going on. 

Regardless, watching the Republican health care reform novella unfold makes it hard to understand why Senate GOP leadership hasn’t attempted getting everyone in the same room to hash out what’s possible for passage.

Barring a few like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, they don’t want to pass anything except ‘fixes’ for Obamadebaclecare.

Related, Stephen Greene links the WSJ because I can’t.

The House bill isn’t perfect—no bill ever is—but it amounts to the biggest entitlement reform in history. It repeals crushing taxes. It dramatically cuts spending. And it begins the process of stabilizing the individual health-care market and expanding consumer freedom.

None of this is good enough for a handful of senators, so now it’s time to make this exercise all about them. Mr. McConnell should make clear that the overwhelming majority of the Republican Party stands ready to make good on its repeal-and-replace campaign promise—and that it would have done so already were it not for a cynical or egotistic few. It’s time for some very public accountability.

That rests in Mr. McConnell giving his caucus a drop-dead date to broker a compromise, after which he will proceed to bring up the House bill. And any Republican who votes against moving forward, “a motion to proceed,” will forever be known as the Republican who saved ObamaCare.

Again, McConnell is part of the problem, he’s one of the Few. Never was so much taken from so many by so few. In America at least, that’s what commie nations do.

Ignore his commentary or at least read it as “GOP  and the Democrats could agree on almost any “reform” bill, so long as it brought more money and power to Washington“/

I’m not sure if he’s trolling for hits on the comment section or is just a little too Elite for me, but he writes some epically stupid things there. Like saying that the reason Russia doesn’t have a working carrier is because of poverty and geography instead of the fact that merely building a carrier does not mean you can use it, just ask France.

You need to study the science of how to make complicated ships work. That’s not easy. I forget the name, but it’s something like ‘systemology’ or something. Britain, America, Germany and Japan know this, it’s a requirement for a powerful navy. Hell, even a battleship is much more than just a big chunk of iron with huge guns on it. It’s a system that has to work together.

 

 

 

CNN: The Most Trusted Name In Fakenews!ff

And his 991 tweets spawned a sea of liberal tears spiced with a boatload of butthurt.

As for the “0 pieces of major legislation”, he needs the GOP to give him some major legislation to sign, they’ve been fighting him harder than the Dems. The Dems actually haven’t been fighting at all, they don’t have to as there’s only a few GOP Congresscritters who want to fight them.

 

Speaking of Butthurt Republicans, via Paco, the butthurt from this would be awesome in its epicness.

The news that Southern-fried rock/rapper Kid Rock will be running for some timeserving Dem hack’s Senate seat in Michigan should make every normal American smile and spill a 40 to his homies. The future Senator Rock deserves your eager support for two critical reasons: First, it will drive the liberals insane. Second, it will make George Will and the rest of Team Fredocon soil themselves.

Eggs Fucking Xactly! Hell, Boehner might even cry for us. I miss him for that. Ryan surely isn’t any more interested in doing what he’s been elected to do but the spectacle of the Majority Leader of the US House of Representatives crying on the floor of Congress is just too illustrative of exactly how badly we are being represented by our representatives.

I don’t like Kid Rock’s music, but I like him cuz he’s a good guy and he’s on America’s side. Which is rare in music these days.

 

Aw shit, Trump is fucking up Syria.

REPORTS SURFACE TODAY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS CANCELLED THE 2012/2013 COVERT CIA PROGRAM GIVING WEAPONS TO ISIS AND AL-QAEDA IN SYRIA.  [WASHINGTON POST LINK]

No, no, no, no. No. Syria needs more arms. Shake up that bucket of scorpions and keep Iran and the House of Saud fighting there.

Although… I could be convinced that it’s to get them to focus on the Arabian peninsula so the nukular war is there, Iran and Pakistan while leaving the eastern Med mostly nuke-free. Maybe Mattis and Tillerson are the ones who changed the policy.

But I’m still in favor of More Small Arms To Moderate Jihadis In Syria!!!! to keep those scorpions savaging each other.

Some of the above links are my cruising or from Larwyn’s Lynx, that’s my second favorite lynx.

 

Societal collapse looks like this

Police and prosecutors say little can be done legally after the revelation that a group of teens filmed the dying moments of a 32-year-old disabled man last week, with the teens mocking, cursing and laughing while the man drowned in a fenced-off pond.

Nobody has empathy anymore. Solipsism is on the rise.

 

This seems like a good idea but I’ve gotta say, I think it’s very, very, very, very bad.

Three Rivers ISD administrators are going shopping for a paddle.

As part of a new policy approved by the board Tuesday, the paddle, likely to be wood, will be used to administer corporal punishment when a student misbehaves at school…

Three Rivers Independent School District trustees voted 6-0 on the motion, with one trustee absent. The policy states only a campus’ behavior coordinator or principal can administer the disciplinary measure at their discretion. Three Rivers ISD students, whose parents have provided written and verbal consent, will receive one paddling for his or her infraction when they misbehave at school.

Some of the parents who provide consent will be good parents whose kids probably won’t need much if any paddling. They already get it at home.

I’d bet quite a few are parents who’ve raised insolent, disrespectful snowflakes like the ones above how thought it was funny to watch someone die and are trying to outsource parenting.

And I’d also bet that many of the ones who give consent will decide that their precious snowflake did not deserve the paddling and/or hit too hard so we’ll see lawsuit after tearful article about how horrible the teacher and the school are.

But at least they’re trying.

 

Although… I’d say societal collapse can look like this too.

Plumbers have rights too you know.

 

Again.

I did something I was loathe loath to do, I figured out what it was going to cost me to get a new body for that engine.

I was going to have to spend probably $8-10k more to own two cars, a running El Camino and an albatross around my neck in the guise of a Caballero with an engine in the bed. Or… I could spend yet another couple grand, I’d hope but probably more knowing that fucking thing, and have a running Caballero worth maybe 3 or 4 grand. So for the low cost of $10-$12k on top of the nearly $10k I’ve already spent I’d have a car and an albatross and a lot less money to buy a house next year. I also have to spend another $1,500 to get the seats reupholstered in my Mustang and fix the BBK throttle body that’s 8 or 9 years old and acting up, I was going to have to put off the seats on the Mustang.

So I decided to keep the albatro….Caballero and, try (wish me luck on this shit) to go the classic car plates route so I don’t have to get emissions. I start school next month and it’ll take a year so next year I’ll move somewhere with no emissions.

I went to the DMV, they said I need Collector Car insurance. My insurance company needs pictures so tomorrow my plan is to register the thing and start driving it. Caballero plans tend to not work, so we’ll see.

The guy who was trying to get it emissioned did a bunch of work on it and it’s finally right. He adjusted the carb and timing, which none of the other people seemed to know how to do correctly, which the first asshole made sure was necessary by taking them off a tuned engine for some inexplicable reason and the 4th or 5th guys screwed up the timing trying to make a top-end car (power band at 5,000+ rpm) into an off-the-line car.

They’re the ones who wanted me to change the carb, I have a brand new Holley 750 4bbl that Blueprint said was right, and distributor, I have new HEI distributor again that Blueprint said was right, to make it faster off the line, which every other mechanic said was not going to work. A bigger, differently geared, rear-end and a manual transmission would be the way to do that according to my buddy in VA.

I might still do that, but if I do then I’d have to relive my teen years and take up power-sliding again… I mean, take up drifting.

I will say that in 1982-84 I did far more exciting ‘drifting’ in my 72 Cutlass Supreme with an Olds 350 4bbl. It was my specialty. I used to give rides. Hell, when I was  16-18 and learning that shit in my 72 Dart with the 196 straight six I did 360s far better than that, on snow and ice cuz a 196 can’t make the tires spin on pavement, but still. I used an egg-timer to track my 0-60 on that Dart.

So my plan is to put the Mustang under a cover and drive the Caballero for the summer and then contrariwise when I can put the top down. I am not looking forward to dealing with the Caballero again, but I hope I found a mechanic HeyZeus has not gotten to. The bastid.

 

Let’s tube!

It’s funny how many outlets said that This Poll Showing GOP Voters Are More Motivated Should Scare Democrats!!!!!! and yet, if you read the comments on righty blogs, it’s the establishment pricks in the GOP who should be worried.

Given the GOP’s campaign against ObamaCare and their failure to repeal it, I would find this encouraging if I were a Democrat…

What is already energizing the Republican vote for 2018 is the prospect for ousting more establishment RINOs in the primaries than at any time in history…

This is what morons like Rags, the MFM and liberals in particular cannot fathom…that people are P1SSED at THIS lot of Republican Democrats!

Get these road blocks to progressed removed and people put in place who will carry out what they said they would!…

 

Primary season is going to be even more interesting than when Tea Partiers were trying to get rid of them. Tea Partiers were still polite and respectful. Today, those people are sick and tired of being called vicious names by all our fine betters in DC and minitrue, they’re not going to be so polite. Remember when they primaried Murkowski and the GOP closed ranks to get her elected anyway? I do not see that shit working next year. If they pull that shit expect the Dem to win and the GOP to blame their voters.

 

The difference between what is important to Americans and what the media is trying to get us to care about.

Bloomberg released a poll Monday in which they gauged Americans’ mood six months into the new presidency. While Trump didn’t fare too well, Americans are quite optimistic about the economy in general and their personal financial health. As part of the study, Bloomberg asked respondents what they think is the top issue facing the country. Here are the results:

Not surprisingly, health care tops the list of concerns, followed by jobs and security issues. These findings are pretty typical, though the collapse of Obamacare and the GOP bills to fix it have caused health care to surge higher than usual. But look toward the center of the list. Russia, the issue that has dominated press coverage since the November election, scores a paltry 6 percent on Americans’ top concerns.

Notice where “taxes” is on that graph. They keep pushing that as if it was a big deal in the election but it was the lawlessness of the former admin, Obamacare and illegal immigration that Trump rode to victory. That stuff is not important to our fine media betters though so they ram their priorities down our throats.

 

Coup Coup

Mueller’s Fishing Expedition appears to be rolling right along.

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

They really don’t want to know what happens if they lawlessly ‘fix’ the election we screwed up last year.

Notice that the people who put their money, instead of ours, where their mouths are are worried.

Major U.S. stock indices, which had been trading higher in the morning, fell as traders worried that the probe could derail Trump’s growth agenda.

Yup. Putting Pence and therefore the establishment pricks in the GOP in charge would fuck the whole thing up.

 

Speaking of which,

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

We finally have someone ready to push back against the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue and some people seem to think he’s too confrontational. When Mitt fucking Romney is the Next Hitler!!!!!! you know it’s time to start fighting back using their rules.

Something the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue refuse to allow to even be said

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

Exactly. RTWT, it’s very smart. You can tell cuz it agrees with stuff I’ve written.

 

Lest we forget that lefties aren’t just vicious, they’re fascists who refuse to accept that alternate viewpoints are valid and should not be aired.

SOCIAL MEDIA GIANT FACEBOOK BLOCKED MORE THAN TWO DOZEN CONSERVATIVE CATHOLIC PAGES IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD, SOME WITH MILLIONS OF FOLLOWERS, SAYING ONLY THEY WERE “SUSPECTED OF SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES.”

Faceblock knows which side of the current war they’re on, and it’s the side of fascist censors.

 

Oh yay!

The head of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned the U.S. that it better move its forces away from his country if Washington imposes new sanctions on his paramilitary group.

Good luck with that. Somehow I don’t think Mattis uses the adjective “powerful” when discussing the Revolutionary Guard. He probably uses words like “target”, “killing field” and “pig-skin coffins”.

 

Do you think that Akbar Britain noticed that Benny Hill and Monty Python are the most popular things about their nation and they’re trying to out-ridiculous them?

Home Secretary Amber Rudd will today propose to make possessing them illegal everywhere, whether in public or at home.

A long list of dangerous weapons that glamorise violence will also be included in the total ban, putting them on the same legal footing as unlicensed firearms.

They include sword sticks, butterfly knives and blowpipes, as well as a range of martial arts weapons such as deathstars (deathstars? throwing stars you arseholes) and handclaws.

Only people having the weapons for bonified ceremonial or religious reasons will be exempt from the ban.

Ms Rudd is also looking at making it compulsory to buy all knives in person rather than ordering for delivery to keep them out of children’s hands.

A new offence could be created of delivering them to private property.

Or are their oligarchs really that stupid? Blowpipes? Are they going to then outlaw copper pipes when people use that?

Banning normal items is what you do When Something Must Be Done!!!!!!! but you’re out of ideas.

The scariest, most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time.

But the police are still powerless to confiscate or arrest suspects who keep the large blades with serrated edges at home.

No really. They’re upset it’s legal to have a bread knife in your house.

Have they outlawed the longbow yet? I know most of their flags are haram, but I’m just wondering how much of their history they’re going to erase.

Up next? Neville Chamberlain’s brilliant foreign policy made it possible for the next Prime Minister, Winston someone or other, to fight WWII.

 

See, now this guy is doing something useful.

Sergei Paylian was only 14 years old when he was horrified by the death of his young, attractive neighbor in Tbilisi, Georgia. As was the local Soviet custom at the time, her open coffin was carried through the street to the sound of music as a shocked teenage Sergei looked on, confronted for the first time with the issue of his own mortality.

It sparked a lifelong obsession with aging – and how to reverse it.

Now, standing in his neat Florida laboratory that looks more like a dentist’s office, the 66-year-old scientist is explaining how a lifetime of research has culminated in a purified extract he calls bioquantines, ‘combinatorial biologics’ incorporating other species such as frogs and, in the future, sharks that he believes is the key to curing diseases – and even death.

When injected into humans, he claims, the bioquantines find their way to diseased or damaged cells and help restore them to a healthier state.

The name is far better than Umbrella Corp

The company Dr Paylian founded, Bioquark, is part of a broader project called ReAnima

A zombie-apocalypse, like an asteroid strike, would be a great sorting device.

When you have no practical skills a fall of civilization pretty much ensures you’re not going to do well. What happens when Domino’s stops delivering and even Amazon Prime can’t get you your quinoa from Whole Foods?

I don’t look like this, my tits are hairy for instance, but it’s my philosophy.

That’s one thing that many people cannot understand, I treat you the way you treat me. I start nice and polite, but if you call me names I’m all outta fucks so I make sure you know I think you’re a little too dim and full of hate to be taken seriously. It doesn’t accomplish anything but give me a laugh and get fools to leave me alone.

But my favorite part is the end. I can not give a fuck very fucking hard. That was a hard lesson but a useful one.

 

Can I get a Heh?

 

 

Now, while computers and technology hate me (as well as mechanics and GMC’s apparently), that doesn’t mean I’m a luddite but…

Sometimes progress isn’t a good thing.

How awesome would it be if CA was still 3 1/2 months away?

Or the denial thereof.

Let’s look at the most prolific deniers of reality.

 

So the latest story about the Trump Colluding With The Russians!!!!! falls apart as soon as it’s looked at closely. Like all the rest of them.

President Trump’s previously undisclosed conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin occurred because first lady Melania Trump had been assigned a seat beside Putin at an official dinner during the G-20 summit in Hamburg earlier this month, a White House official said Tuesday evening…

“During the course of the dinner, all the leaders circulated throughout the room and spoke with one another freely. President Trump spoke with many leaders during the course of the evening. As the dinner was concluding, President Trump went over to Mrs. Trump, where he spoke briefly with President Putin.” ….

“There was no ‘second meeting’ between President Trump and President Putin, just a brief conversation at the end of a dinner.

So he sat down next to his wife and there was Tsar Putin I, so naturally our fine media betters had to write a story about a ‘secret meeting’. It’s just axiomatic.

With this quote that fits our fine media betters to a T.

 The insinuation that the White House has tried to ‘hide’ a second meeting is false, malicious and absurd,

That’s all they have. Malicious, absurd, lies. Like the other current one about how his son-in-law met with a Russian that Obama’s peeps let in the country in suspicious circumstances. Much like every other Russian Collusion!!! story out there.

 

Now let’s look at the reality that the GOP has been throwing fish at our faces for years.

The GOP was all about repealing Obamacare when it was impossible, now that it’s possible they’re uninterested. As anybody with a clue already knew.

Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) said on Tuesday she cannot support a bill to repeal Obamacare without a replacement, even though she voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015.

I hope every GOP voter who arfed, slapped their fins and honked their squeezy bulb horns is fucking bullshit angry.

The worst part, electing Dems would not solve anything. We’ve tried that and the GOP blamed us for not recognizing their obvious superiority.

We need to primary all these assholes.

Although….that hasn’t always worked well in the past. Remember when we were all wrong about wanting to get rid of Murkowski? There sure is egg on our faces!

Collins, who opposes the current bill, is the only Republican in the Senate who voted against repeal back in 2015. But look at the GOP senators who voted in favor of repeal: Dean Heller, the Nevada senator who’s been very publicly reluctant to support the current effort. Shelley Moore Capito, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, and more. Would they all vote the same way again with a Republican in the White House and a majority of voters opposed to the bill?

Oh wait, that’s GOP spit and fish-slime.

I was wondering how they were going to do their failure theater, McConnell shows me the way.

Look carefully at what McConnell said. First, the Senate will “vote to take up the House bill.” And then, after it votes to take up the House bill…

Gee, if only the Senate majority had a leader who could choose which bills the Senate should take up! Of course, when they vote against taking up the House bill, they’ll try to convince us they Really Tried, Guys!

Fuckhead thinks we’re idiots. Since we keep electing these assholes, it’s hard to argue with that position.

 

Keeping with how our Elite think we’re subhuman and beneath them, I ignored David Brooks idiotic lie about how a friend was intimidated by a sandwich, but now we see this response.

“David Brooks’ friend doesn’t need him to ‘sensitively’ take her somewhere she already knows while pondering on the social signifiers that keep her from being as enlightened as he is,” Charlie Martin writes. “What she needs is for him to pull his nose down far enough to say ‘it’s salami.’”

Now first, that story was too stupid to be true so treating it as serious is absurd. It was just like another asshole, I forget who cuz I don’t care, who relates conversations with fictional cab-drivers to prove his ‘points’.

But more importantly, when did Italian food become “upper class”? 60 years ago them Wops were rightly kept from the upper strata and their food? Barbaric! Now it’s Upper Class and we proles just can’t understand it.

 

One of the most interesting and fun parts of these days is figuring out if shit like this is real or a joke.

That’s a joke. When I first watched it I was sure she was for real, but then I read the responses and realized it was meant to be funny.

I’m still trying to decide if that makes it funnier or less funny. It certainly is less endy as more and more people begin to notice the absurdity of today.

 

Let’s keep being a twit. Staten Island used to be the most conservative part of NYC.

WTF?

 

Let’s look at the state of EUnuchstanian cultural suicide.

Things are going smashingly well in Londonistan.

The City of London has the highest murder rate in the land. While the authorities launch investigations into pork being left at a mosque or a hijab supposedly being torn off, crime continues to rise.

Gun control has worked so wonderfully well that gun crime in London rose 42%. When gun control advocates insist that we should be more like the UK, London’s 2,544 gun crime offenses probably aren’t what they have in mind…

Those complex social reasons would seem to involve stabbing other people. But like Islamic terrorism, stabbings in London are one of those things that can’t be solved by the police. Unlike people saying mean things about Muslims on Facebook and Twitter which the Met cops are well equipped to solve.

Still the authorities have been doing their best to tackle stabbings with a knife ban. Carry a knife without a “good reason” and you can get four years in prison…

But it’s working well enough that many of the gangs responsible for the violence are turning to acid.

Acid attacks in London rose from 162 in 2012 to 454 last year. There have already been 199 acid attacks this year. Five acid attacks just happened in London in the space of little more than an hour.

And so the obvious new solution is drain cleaner control.

Geez. Now that the people they refuse to allow to assimilate have decided to use vehicles, I have to wonder if EUnuchstanian serfs will have to give a good reason for owning a car.

 

This is the yelling at Tim Blair part of the post.

He does give us this graphic showing acid attacks.

But then he goes off the rails.

There’s more acid in London now than there was in 1968. But this acid isn’t the kind that makes people create awful music and forget basic hygiene.

You know, fuck you. Sure hippies are dirty and smelly but hallucinogens make the best music! Cocaine makes shitty music.  Did Jimi Hendrix live and die a tragically early death in vain? Did Jethro Tull do a mountain of acid for nothing?

That guy is tripping his balls off.

I couldn’t find the version I wanted, he spends about a minute catching trails off his waving hand, but he’s tripping hard in almost every video you’ll see.

 

Arguing with headlines!

Saudi Woman Who Wore Mini Skirt On Video Is Arrested By Police For Violating “Islamic Dress Code”

It’s not a miniskirt, it’s more than halfway to her knees. Words have meaning.

 

Let’s talk about the Muslim World

Is Pakistan worrying about getting drawn into the coming nukular war in the middle east?

There’s little doubt that the Pak-Saudi encounter is the original “all weather” relationship. But this relationship is now coming under strain…

Take his signature defence policy. Salman is said to be the architect of the campaign against Yemen (though he denies this). Except that what was promised as a short, surgical war isn’t quite going to plan. Moreover, two years of relentless aerial bombardment has caused large-scale civilian death and a public health emergency unseen in modern times, according to the World Health Organisation.

Getting sucked into fighting the Islamic Theocracy V the Theocracy of Islam is about as futile and stupid a thing there is.

Things are going as usual in Kashmir so maybe they’re more worried about nukular war with India. You know the oil ticks will not get involved in that, no Jews and few insufficiently similar Muslims to kill there!

 

This is pretty cool.

Lipstick Under My Burkha will hit screens on Friday, five months after the country’s notoriously prudish and much-maligned censor board refused to certify it for being “lady oriented”. (emphasis me, V)

The movie tells the story of the secret lives and desires of four women — including a college student who wears a burkha, and a 55-year-old who rediscovers a sex life after the death of her husband.

So chick flicks were illegal there? While I deplore the lack of freedom, I understand it.

Some of Pakistan is sick of the 7th century savages savaging their nation, I wonder how they’ll do against the murderous assholes in their version of the Religion of Peace.

 

No matter how often I see this idiocy I cannot even pretend the assholes who believe it are anything but anti-historical, anti-human-nature, morons.

The visit to Cuba of Virginia B. Dandan, the United Nations “independent” expert on human rights and international solidarity serves as evidence that the argument made by some that having repressive governments on the UN Human Rights Council would lead those regimes to improve their behavior is disastrously false… (emphasis me, V)

Leading to the spectacle of a human rights expert who visits a totalitarian dictatorship and at a press conference states: “I do not know what you mean by opposition. I honestly do not know who is in the opposition.” This led an opposition publication to publish an oped titled: “Virginia Dandan, the expert who does not ask questions.”

Remember when the idiots told us that the Palestinian Death Cult (Hamas) would moderate after being elected to lead their part of the Terrortories?

Yeah, that was less stupid than thinking that putting the thugs that murderous regimes send to the UN are anything but the thugs for murderous dictators.

I do understand it’s hard to find an opposition in Cuba, but that’s not because they’re not there but because they’re dead, in prison or in hiding. Which part of ‘murderous commie dictatorship’ is so hard to understand?

 

Speaking of intolerant, violent commies, Evergreen College!

A Friday memo emailed from Washington’s Evergreen State College’s administrators to the student body said that actions taken by the social justice advocates over the last few months — including intimidation and prohibition of egress from school areas — have been illegal, and could result in criminal charges.

Yeah, that’s far too late.

I’m not a lawyer, nor do I play one on the ‘tubes, but wouldn’t their defense be that the college admin gave them the green light to be violent, intolerant, racist and thuggish?

Especially since this is long after the beginning of the thuggish, intolerant, racist violence but only shortly after this

According to The College Fix, Vice President for Student Affairs Wendy Endress wrote in a July 14 memo that recent events by social justice warrior students have tarnished Evergreen State College’s  reputation to the point that enrollment at the college has fallen.

Furthermore, Endress noted that Washington legislators had introduced two bills to phase out public funding for Evergreen, turning the college into a private entity.

It’s funny how threatening to stop the flow of other people’s money makes commies show remorse.

I’ve been wondering where to put this graphic, it sorta fits here so you get it.

People as little as 10 years ago would have called you a paranoid loon for saying that was our future. Yet here we are.

 

Nother societal observation.

To get the most out of your next trip to one of these landmarks, and to stay safe if you’re planning to rough it in the wilderness, we asked Ash Nudd, a former park ranger who worked in three different parks, as well as a National Park Service spokesperson to share some must-have items.

Here are seven items you shouldn’t visit a national park without…

They list some that are not all that obvious like bear spray (I prefer a .500 S&W magnum, I don’t want to be a pile of bear-spray smelling bear shit) but then they list sunscreen and hiking boots or shoes while explicitly saying to not wear high heels.

Yes, they literally need to tell people not to wear high heels in the wilderness.

Every year people die around here because they went hiking in flip-flops with a 20 oz. bottle of water in the summer.

They also tell you to bring a paper map. Why? It’s not really funny, but there are a lot of people who have no idea how to use a map. I love maps but when I ask someone else to figure out where we are they often have no clue. Lots of people do not even know that, unless otherwise noted, the top of every map is north.

Remember the family camping trip? Not any more. That’s so uncool!

So my Societal Observation!!!!!

Many parents today do not teach their kids the stuff that parents used to teach them as a matter of course. 

My sister is an awesome cook. Her soups are unbelievable. She even makes sausage and escarole with turkey sausage and it’s still unbelievably good.

Her daughters couldn’t cook a hot dog without directions and a microwave. They’re actually angry with me that I think that’s ridiculous. “I have a phone and people deliver food.” is the politest response I’ve heard.

 

A few years ago I had some neighbors, a 21 year old couple with a baby. They were clueless about so much normal stuff that people do.

For instance, I lent them my gas grill. The second day I looked outside and saw him by the grill with the flames shooting up a couple feet. I went out to get him to turn down the gas when I saw he had filled the gas grill with charcoal and used lighter fluid to start it. He had thrown out the lava rocks before doing so. The worst part was that he had dragged it to by his apartment so he had to carry the gas tank. He had no idea what a gas grill is. They weren’t tweakers, just people whose parents did not teach them life skills.

 

Obviously it’s not everybody, but it’s enough to be a very bad trend.

What if we actually do get to the societal collapse our fine betters are demanding? What would happen to these helpless individuals when they’re forced to try to live without people to do for them? It wouldn’t be pretty. It wouldn’t be funny, but I’m sure there will be people enough laughing at them as they die of hunger in a forest full of food or by shitting their lives out from drinking bad water.

 

Via Paco, we see the most expensive guns out there. I expected it to be all about lame-ass, trendy guns, but I wuz wrong.

The most expensive one

George Washington’s saddle pistols: $1,986,000

Awesome. I’m not a fan of the first one, but I’d surely like to own the rest.

 

If anybody disputes that Gaia hates Al Gore, I give you the iceberg I’ve titled, Suck This Al Gore!
