Tim Blair, noticer of things that leftists do not want noticed,  notices this story:

A case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is reported in England every 109 minutes, official health figures show.

Some 2421 instances of mutilation were reported from April 2015 to September 2015 -…

Experts say the figures…are just the ‘tip of the iceberg’….

And then notices this:

Observe also that the Press Association’s report doesn’t offer any reasons why female genital mutilation is increasing in England.


Nowhere in that story are the words “Islam”, “Muslim” or anything to do with the culture of the people involved.

In (Great) Britain, the savages are taking over and the Brits apparently okay with it.

In Europe they’re importing vicious savages and attacking the people who notice they’re acting like savages.

This will not end well.

In another case of our fine media betters not caring that who they support is a vicious savage, Blue’s Blog has this.

hilary's problem

That’s bothered me for a long time too and why I figured the Benghazi deal would not affect her, the media frames it all as “The GOP is going after Hillary….again!”

I will say that Iowa had better hope she doesn’t become POTUS, she is not known for her forgiving attitude toward disrespect and they boned her twice.


In today’s exciting episode

The petition to block the front-running Republican presidential candidate from entering the country was created on the British government’s official petitions website in response to Trump’s call Monday to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. due to the threat of terrorism.


Yes, Used To Be Great Britain is working on barring someone from entry to their country because he wants to bar people from entry to his country.

Watching what’s happening is pretty depressing but still gosh darned funny.


Important Update!!!!!!


Well, not so much important as childish and tacky.


This is ts the Washington Free Beacon Section

Whose side is Obama on? That’s an easy one, who hates America the most in that region.

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood.

If only we could get Israel to start some anti-American rhetoric, maybe behead a few journalists then Obama might be on their side.


I know which side I’m on in China V Freedom, I wish I didn’t know which side Obama is on.

Original participants in China’s pro-democracy movement in 1989 are back in prison on the 26th anniversary of the government’s brutal suppression of those protests,

Anniversaries always get me in trouble too, but usually I just get the silent treatment and don’t get laid because I forget them, I’ve almost never been killed over one and I’ve only been imprisoned once (long story)


I’m not sure whose side I’m on in this one.

Al Qaeda and other Islamist terrorists pose a “high” threat of attacking the upcoming G-7 summit meeting in Germany,

That’s a poser.


Once again, I know whose side I’m on, it’s just hard to figure out how to do anything for the poor kid whose stuck in this utterly ludicrous yet utterly horrible (funny and endy!) situation.

‘Complicated’: The transsexual partner of a former lesbian lover of a nine-year-old’s natural mother has been refused access to see the girl after a judge found that her life was complicated enough
The couple – known as Rachel and Helen – split up when she was three. Rachel, who was Alice’s natural mother, was sectioned with schizophrenia and Helen entered a relationship with Matthew, the man who has brought the case.

When he met Helen he was a woman having treatment to live as a man.


Jebus. That poor little girl has absolutely no chance at any sort of normal life.


I’m on (Used to be) Great Britain’s side, but then, I always root for the underdog. The 600 year history of the Royal Mail is coming to an end.

The UK government is to sell its remaining 30 percent stake in Royal Mail

Sure it’ll still be there, but it will not be owned by the government. How messed up is it that a socialist country is selling its stuff to private enterprise?

So socialism leads to libertarianism? That’s pretty darn funny.

This bit makes me laugh a little more.

The UK offloaded a 60 percent stake in Royal Mail in 2013, but attracted criticism for selling it too cheaply when shares soared following the sale.

Let me get this straight, a company run by a gov’t agency who cares not for profitability(it’s not their money) is sold to a private enterprise whose goal is to make money and the stock prices go up? The deuce you say!


As always, I’m on the side of science against Science!

In a major blow to environmental activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that the controversial drilling technique known as fracking has not caused any widespread impacts on drinking water,

Not that this will matter, notice they link the Wash Times. I’m gonna go out on a limb and bet that The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. do not give this much coverage. They are in the affirmation business, not the information business after all.


As always, I’m on the side of freedom against the current, Chicago-machine-politics ruling our nation.

In March of this year, the Obama administration removed the White House from FOIA requests. Also in March, a note on a FOIA request that wasn’t blacked out said, “We (agency workers) live in constant fear of upsetting the WH [White House].”

The agencies have a history of perverting the process in favor of leftists. In 2013, the federal government granted waivers on FOIA requests for greenies but not conservatives. Green groups received information for free 92% of the time while equivalent Conservative groups are not granted fee waivers 93% of the time.


That also illustrates why I’m on Sharyl Attkisson’s side, she’s just about the only journalist in America.


The real poser of the day:

Nannarch nannarchor  Grannarch?Trailer Park Grandma Hillary


Paco helped me come up with that one.

British wussbag finds crusty old ammo stash

Posted: July 2, 2013 by doubleplusundead in FAIL Britannia!

Jesus Fucking Christ what a motherfucking pussy,

wussbagBoth persons pictured pee sitting down.

Seriiously, read the article.  Before SMOD, I want a zombie outbreak for the express purpose of seeing pathetic people like this devoured by the hordes of the undead.  Darwin has been cheated for too long.   The mangina pictured would curl into the fetal position and start weeping softly if he could see half the Moron Horde’s ammo stashes.

I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.

A drudgetaposition, smart diplomacy edition

Turkey welcomes Israel apology for defending against terrorist flotilla!

Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.

Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.

Barbra Streisand to perform in Tel Aviv

Poor bastards.

Lebanon’s gov’t dissolves itself. I figure Hezbollah will move in. Oh well, they had their Cedar Revolution and they allowed Jew-hatred to fuck it up.

Via the Jawas, A look at Hezbollah’s politicking.

(Note: I have no idea where that is and I condemn myself for laughing every time I watch it)

Global worming attacks Ukraine!

Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.

I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.

A week or two ago I had a story about how Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.

Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.

Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?

Via Samizdata, more Airstrip One news, some friend of O’Brien’s had this to say about their new restrictions on free speech, journalism and blogging.

Headline of the op-ed.

Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy

In the body

believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.

Freedom Is Slavery!

I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.

I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though

Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.

Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.

Fuck you.

Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.

The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty.  One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?

Alexander (R-TN)          Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)                   Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA)         Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS)            Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)                Cornyn (R-TX)

Hatch (R-UT)                  Hoeven (R-ND)
Isakson (R-GA)             Johanns (R-NE)
McConnell (R-KY)       Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL)            Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)              Wicker (R-MS)

Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.

Speaking of which…..

From the Barrel of a Gun (blog) we see this.


It would be funny if it weren’t true.

Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.

NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.

Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.

This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.

This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)

Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.

Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I  mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!

President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.

First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.

I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?

I cannot put anything, no matter how despicably murderous, past Mr Fast and Furious Benghazi.

Now, the hotassery, I believe this is the first actual sex show on DPUD!

Work that bitch!

Or is that Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Animal Sanctuary?

A couple of NY Post links that don’t include either maniacs or cannibals. (I know)

So a kid with a gun was shot by police in Brooklyn, so there have been mostly peaceful protests going on.

A police officer was smashed in the face with a brick and 50 people were arrested as unrest over a teenager shot dead by cops continued to plague a Brooklyn neighborhood last night.

Mostly peaceful. I don’t know the circumstances, but I do know that the kid had the gun illegally. I have seen quotes from relatives who said he was trying to turn the gun in, I assume he was going to do so after choir practice and before volunteering an orphanage.

In “My Job Is Too Hard” news, we see the TSA explaining that they’re useless and should be disbanded.

The TSA whined yesterday that it’s just too darn hard for agents to find bombs — unless the terrorists use explosives straight out of a Loony Tunes cartoon.



Think that’s harsh?

“It’s not like they’re using a cartoonish bundle of dynamite with an alarm clock strapped to it,” Bob Burns of the TSA Blog Team posted on the agency’s Web site.

I understand, you’re too incompetent and the whole dept. should be disbanded.

In How Dare You Trust My Employers hilarity, Tom Maguire notices this hilarity.

Quoth Paul Krugman

OK, I’m an evil person — and my scheming has paid off.

On Friday I started hearing from friends about a fake story making the rounds about my allegedly filing for personal bankruptcy; I even got asked about the story by a reporter from Russian television, who was very embarrassed when I told him it was fake. But I decided not to post anything about it; instead, I wanted to wait and see which right-wing media outlets would fall for the hoax.

And came through!


Tom notices something that apparently that uber-evil genius didn’t.

Those silly righties! Left unmentioned at Krugman’s blog – Breitbart lifted the story from the website of the Boston Globe, a NY Times company. I think it is kind of funny that the Times organization was duped about the bankruptcy of their own columnist…

As are we all Tom, as are we all.

In “Word of the Year” news, we see this word “austerity” that used to mean “living within your means” but now apparently means something about raising taxes to afford how you want to live.

Don’t believe me? In a story about Qatar cutting off Egypt as they’re running out of food, fuel and goats for escort services, they talk about the IMF demanding Austerity.

A $4.8 billion grant from the IMF could stanch the bleeding, but it requires Egypt to accept austerity measures.

Is there now an International Journolist that is coordinating the use of that word?

Relatedly, France and Britain has decided they will arm jihadis caught in the global downturn.

France has joined Britain by indicating it may be ready to break ranks with the rest of the EU and question the utility of the arms embargo for the Free Syrian Army.

That’s pretty funny, they’ve disarmed their own populace as they’re arming jihadis.


I love tilting at windmills, it doesn’t do any good by itself, but if we can get enough people doing it we’ll get rid of the scourge of polluting windmills. Or something, I don’t know. Just read this and stop expecting me to make sense.

Just how bad are some of our members of Congress?

29 members have been accused of spousal abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 117 have bankrupted at least 2 businesses, 3 have been arrested for physical assault, 71 have such bad credit that they can’t even qualify for a credit card, (yet with their special clearance as a member of Congress they get an Amex card without having a credit check.) 14 have been arrested on drug related charges, 8 have been arresting for shoplifting, and at least 84 members of Congress have been stopped for drunk driving but subsequently let go once they showed they were members of Congress.

That’s our Congress!

Okay, this one makes me laugh. Ed Schutz is being demoted at MSNBC,  no not fore being too leftist

Chris Hayes will take over the 8 p.m. time slot on MSNBC in the next month, the channel announced on Thursday morning, the day after the current host of that hour, Ed Schultz, said he was moving from the weekdays to the weekends.


So who is Chris Hayes?

The same Chris Hayes who on Memorial Day said he was “uncomfortable” calling fallen American soldiers “heroes.”

I figure Ed was demoted because he kept getting caught doctoring video.

In, Ummm Dude? We Had One Revolution Over Just That Issue Already news, Bill Gates explains why we need to be more like the British.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, the wealthiest American, said on “some days” he wishes the U.S. political system were like England’s,

Seriously, the US Constitution was created to fix the problems with the British system.

Speaking of the Constitution, we see that Feinstein’s “What 2nd Amendment” bill was voted out of committee so our fine, GOP betters can get on with taking my guns.


Last, no linky, but does anybody know which Saint Francis the new pope named himself after? I ask because I keep seeing people say that he named himself after St. Francis without explaining which one.

Shep Smith, who is obviously wholly ignorant of the Catholic Church, kept saying, “He named himself after Saint Francis”, so I kept saying, “Which St Francis you fucking moron?”( I have a low opinion of Shep).

I then saw him say at one point something about that St. Francis being a Jesuit, so Francis Xavier.

Later, I was watching something else on Fox for a few minutes when I saw the scroll along the bottom saying, “…named after St Francis of Assisi.”

I understand Shep is lazy, stupid and so very ignorant so I shouldn’t pick on him, but if Foxnews is going to send someone so ignorant to cover the Catholic Church, couldn’t they at least have provided him with a producer who knows something about the Catholic Church?

I’m getting too into stuff, I need to get back to my usual, making fun of WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!

Let’s see how I do!

First up, Welcome to the Party Pal.

The senator (McCaskill V), who has complained about the TSA’s security techniques in the past, tweeted that she was selected for a pat-down and that the experience was not a pleasant one.

Awwwwwww. I feel for her. Rather, I feel for her getting felt up like the rest of us. Nobody likes a reach-around without being called the next day.

Fast and Furious: The Gift That Keeps On Killing! Some cartels decided to battle it out in a border town.

Fear and panic filled the streets of Reynosa on Sunday night as rival gunmen battled during a three-hour firefight that saw automatic weapons and grenades used.


Then they get to the funny.

Surprisingly, Mexican authorities were absent for most of the melee.

Two things, surprising to whom and which side did you think they’d come in on?


So the opposition in Venezuela is worrying the Thugs In Chief.

I think the word  “nervous” best describes the reaction of Cabello and Maduro to the announcement of Henrique Capriles Radonski last night that he’s going to run against the usurper Maduro for the presidency.


Which leads to another one of those “Exporting Our Values” things.

Opposition candidate Henrique Capriles tried to register to run for president today but was blocked from entering the election board by Chavez-Maduro supporters.

Hmmm, getting your opponents out of the race via slimy means. Just like Obama!

In Airstrip One news,

Ed Miliband was hoping to sit down with David Cameron and Nick Clegg later on Tuesday or Wednesday to agree a historic new deal which would see newspapers regulated like the BBC.

O’Brien is earning his lavish lifestyle.

Okay, this is very interesting. As we all know, Obama doesn’t like that Shitty Little Country any more than our fine, tolerant, enlightened EUnuch friends, so that makes this hard to figure out.

But while Obama is thinking of ways to revive the stalled peace talks, Palestinian activists say they are planning a “warm” welcome for him when he visits Ramallah or any other Palestinian city in the West Bank.

One plan being discussed among Palestinian activists includes staging anti-US demonstrations in Palestinian cities, particularly outside the place Obama is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.


See, they’re big on putting bombs on women and children, so how does the Secret Service guarantee Obama’s safety? They can’t. So how does Obama handle the fact that his Partners For Peace (non-pashtun-boy-fucking-savages but still savage edition) are going to try to kill him? I figure he’ll cancel parts of his trip and blame it on Israel.

I mean, he’s going to blame all the bad stuff on Israel no matter what, it’s just what he’s going to do before doing it that’s confusing me.

Relatedly, we see some more Tolerant Peaceful Cries For Death To JewsZionists….Jews.

A controversy has been re-ignited this week as ten new ads go up on San Francisco Muni buses containing quotes used by terrorists.

“Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to Allah,” reads one of the ads, which has people debating the line between free speech and hate speech.

I’ll help them figure it out. It’s always free speech when it’s Death To Israel or America, it’s hate-speech when you notice them saying it.


So Syria resembles Somalia?

“As I’ve said several times, the Syrian crisis has to be solved through a political compromise, as the situation resembles closely — and perhaps even more than — to that of Somalia a few years ago,”


No, it doesn’t. Somalia had nothing even resembling a strong, central gov’t. It’s been warlords for decades, so any comparison is just trying to give EUnuchs an excuse for not doing anything. “Don’t want another Mogadishu!” after all.


Nice Deb has a decent post about Republican congresscritters getting upset with Obama’s, “Let’s release criminals to prey on America just like my good friend Castro” deal with lots of links.

Most of the first hour was spent talking about ICE’s shocking and “bizarre” decision to release illegal immigrant prisoners:

Scaring us by releasing illegal immigrant criminals — “REALLY, Mr. President? Really?!” Kobach thundered.“This is a brazen abuse of power”, he said. “They crossed the line.”

“This is impeachment stuff!”

“You do not release dangerous criminals to make a point…”


Bwahahahaah, yes he does. Geez, this is the man who sold guns to Mexican cartels to gin up a “controversy” to take my guns. Pay attention!

Let’s see how they do. I figure nothing will come of this. Obama’s contempt for Congress probably exceeds mine. And that’s saying something.

I saw this story elsewhere, but I’m linking this story at the  Fire Andrea Mitchell blog cuz.

Well, they did it. Colorado State Senate Democrats have spit out 5 gun control bills, which will limit citizens rights to their second amedmnednt. LArge magazine clips will now be banned, and limits gun ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. Also included in the Democrat gunn control jihad is a new background check requirement AND fee. via KUSA-TV, has an updated list of what Colorado Democrats have done with their gun grab:

Now I have to wonder if Magpul wants an out-of-work patent examiner/teacher when they move to AZ.


Remember when Judicial Watch was going after Bush, Ashcroft and co. and they were “non-partisan”? Yeah, that’s going to change in a big way.

Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State seeking access to “all videos and photographs” depicting the Benghazi, Libya, Consulate between September 10 and September 13, 2012, the period leading up to, during, and immediately following the deadly attack that took the life of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Judicial Watch filed its lawsuit on February 25, 2013 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-00242)).  This is one of three Benghazi FOIA lawsuits being pursued by Judicial Watch.

That’s against the 11-24th Commandments, Thou shalt not dis Obama! (repeated 14 times)

I liked Paul Ryan until he joined Romney and shut up. When your power is more important than your principles, I tend to not give a shit about you. I’m not sure how true this is, but for what it’s worth a complete Puppy Blender post.

CHANGE: House GOP would cancel health care reforms, trim $5t in spending.

UPDATE: Prof. Stephen Clark emails: “Ryan’s budget proposal is no more serious than the budget being fronted by Senate Democrats. Both are merely aspirational and entirely political. When will either party get serious? Probably not until the voting public makes a decision about what it wants. Until then, it will be CR’s and continued drift. Hard as it may be to believe, much less accept, an insufficient number of citizens believes that there is a problem requiring that they, as individuals, give up anything. Until then it will be circuses – anything to avoid discussions of finance. This is the true legacy of the Bernanke era.”

None of them are serious.

They can’t be, the can has been kicked so far down the road that picking it up will be nearly impossible without drastic actions that will cause the Takers who think they deserve my money to get pissed off (Dear DHS/War On Americans study group from the previous post, that’s a far more likely scenario for insurrection)

Jay at MArooned has a story that shows that you don’t need a gun, the police are there to help you!

So, let’s recap. This woman had an abusive husband. There had been repeated 911 calls regarding him and violent behavior. The call comes in, she can be heard pleading with another person, and yet this still isn’t given priority. Woman with a violent ex, repeated calls, no urgency relayed. Responding officers show up when they’re in the area nearly an hour later – and leave. Now, maybe she was still alive at that point. Maybe she was dead seconds after the call was completed.


See? She had a restraining order she needed to rely on and instead she got all violently defensive. It was her own fault for choosing that man. Listen, if you’re going to need a restraining order on a guy in the future, you probably shouldn’t date him. That’s just elementary.

Good news from This Ain’t Hell and something that should be advertised.

Good News!

DPMO has announced the identification of four more US personnel previously MIA in past conflicts.


Over 7,900 US personnel remain unaccounted for from the Korean War, and over 73,600 remain unaccounted for from World War II.  If you are a relative of one of the individuals listed here (Korea) or listed here (World War II – critical need), please consider reading this link to see if you qualify to submit a mtDNA sample – and if you do qualify, please do so.  By doing so, you may be able to help identify US remains that have been repatriated but not yet positively identified.

Everybody deserves a proper burial.  That’s especially true for those who gave their all in the service of this nation.

Amen. That has to be hard on their relatives, not knowing is the worst kind of hell. (so maybe that part of the post should not be at This Ain’t Hell, but since you can see Hell from there, I’ll let them slide)

People make fun of me when I say this, but I think the only way we’re ever going to be able to provide good healthcare to all is when it’s done by machines and not people.

Such a scenario is becoming increasingly possible thanks to the developing field of medical robotics and the increasing use of robots in surgical procedures. By using robots, surgeons can perform complex operations more easily and precisely, and in a less invasive way that improves results for patients.

Your rights cannot require others to work for you as that’s slavery, but if we could get machines to handle it, that would make it possible for all to get good care.

Via Say Uncle, we see an App for mass murders.

Join other citizens as you report and find Gun Free Zones throughout the United States. Whether you want to shop in gun free zones as often as possible or avoid them altogether, this app will help you shop, play, and do business with like-minded people.

Yeah, and it helps people who like to take guns into gun-free zones where they’ll know they’re the only armed ones.


Via Eric we see a metaphor.

Sometimes you’re the tire, sometimes you’re the elephant’s trunk (that’s shoved into a pile of elephant shit at the end)

Some of those links came from Doug Ross’ always depressing and infuriating Larwyn’s Lynx
