Holy moly! We’re seeing new things! I mean, we’re seeing all the old things but with a new twist.

 

Trump is retweeting Judicial Watch discuss the coup, making me wonder if he’s actually considering my Fire the Dept of “Justice” and replace them with Judicial Watch” plan. That would be awesome.

 

Barr, the AG, told Congress about Obama and co. spying on Trump and the butthurt is awesome.

Evidence Free is going to make a comeback! Can Inadvertent and Incidental be far behind?

Let’s go back in timetwo years to March, 2017

Charles Krauthammer, who usually provides center-Right analysis, stated categorically that:
“It’s a farce, you know, the idea that everyone in this town – the media – the agencies – the congress – are running around chasing their tails on a story that everyone knows it’s not true, but having to pretend that it might be because he’s the President when we know how it’s going to end.”
This is absurd.

Yes, yes it was. I do have to wonder if it’s going to get more…how much more absurd it’s going to get. I’m not sure exactly how much more absurd we can survive.

Ace has a bunch of updates on his post that show testimony from years ago that maybe, possibly, could point out how it was an attempt at a coup. You should click over there, it’s in a much more compact form than the archives of various righty blogs from the last few years. The ‘new’ part is that our fine betters are having to notice it and/or twist into absurd contortions pretending they weren’t all in on that stupidity. They are facing a crisis. They might even have to admit to themselves that they were nitwits.

Now I wonder how happy normal Americans, even people who don’t like Trump, are going to react if there are no repercussions for felonious treason as our betters explain it away.

Is it time? Will there actually be repercussions? (warning: That’s a ‘busy’ page. Lots of stuff going on.)

The Justice Department’s watchdog is reportedly looking into an FBI informant who was a source for the bureau’s Russia investigation during the 2016 election cycle.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigators are asking questions about Stefan Halper, an American professor at Cambridge University, who met with members of President Trump’s campaign, according to the New York Times…

But wait! There’s still more!

Attorney General William Barr has assembled a “team” to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.

I have to admit, I’m even thinking of breaking out my GOP Voter Device for reals.

GOP Voter Device

I might even ‘arf’. I ain’t slapping my fins until there’s a perpwalk though.

Of course, it’s not really a Republican doing it, it’s Trump.

In spite of everything the GOP can do he’s still keeping on keeping on. They’re fighting him on his whole agenda, they just will not send him any legislation or even allow him to do what he’s trying to do. They don’t even ‘view with concern’ all the times the “Justice” Dept absolutely ignored everything judges involved in their cases had to say.

Especially considering this, someone from the RNC talking about Mueller.

MARTIN: What’s your reaction? I’m sure you have many, but what’s your top line reaction to today’s report?

DHILLON: Well, the president was completely vindicated and exonerated after two years of false allegations and really, what I consider to be a coup attempt against his presidency. But we are not cheering, most of us here on the Republican side, because it is atrocious and outrageous that the Department of Justice and the FBI and these other institutions were hijacked for a partisan end, and that for two years, our president was not allowed to fully carry out his agenda because of this cloud hanging over his presidency.

So far so good, then this

And I will also say on the other side, the Democrats in Congress don’t appear to be willing to let this go either. So I don’t think we’ve seen the end of this entire situation by a long stretch.

That’s code for, “We’ll work with our very good friends across the aisle to bring them to justice!”

It works better if you read that in John McCain’s voice and think of what legislation they’ll pass to make sure we can’t do what they did.

 

 

Here Trump’s going around Congress by doing a little creative funding,

White House officials will shift about $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build President Donald Trump’s controversial southern border wall

He’s reaching back to his construction days. Hmmmm, do you think he’ll pull out another of his faves, bankruptcy? How funny would it be if we went bankrupt. Our whole gov’t letting their phones go to voicemail. That could be a good alternative to an asteroid. Something to think about anyway.

 

Troll Level: Trumpian!

That’s getting around Congress by making them look like fools. Hypocritical fools.

Sure, he’s not very presidential in word but he surely is in deed and he’s fighting back. I’ll take it.

 

Semi-related,

Headline

There is no left left in Israel

The problem is that leftism has become utterly absurd and utterly untethered to reality.

America can survive that for a while, we’re strong and isolated from powerful enemies, Israel literally cannot survive pretending the community based reality is actual reality. They are constantly facing a literal existential threat so pretending idiocies can only ensure they’re all dead.

 

Evergreen headline:

SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR CONTINUES

Syria is a bucket of scorpions all killing each other as Allah intended.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army continues to make indiscriminate attacks:

Huh, I didn’t realize there was a cease-fire.

You want to hear something funny? I wrote that before I read this

The Observatory said 10 people were killed in Tuesday’s attack in a “demilitarized” zone set up under the Turkish-Russian agreement.

Your shoelaces are untied!

Related, watching the Dems defend this

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something,

has been illuminating for many people who’d managed to avoid learning things about Dems.

 

Speaking of keeping people from learning bad things about Democrats, Jim Acosta has won an award for keeping Americans from learning bad things about Democrats while reporting made up bad things about the bad Orange Man!

 

The New York Press Club announced the recipient of their “Truth to Power” award: CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

The guy who was kicked out of the press room for acting like a petulant, spoiled, tantrumy 5 year old

Truth To Power!!!!! Which in the current issue of Newspeak has this non-artist’s rendition:

 

It’s stuff like that that lets you know exactly how imaginative the Babylon Bee is, it’s really hard to think up stuff more absurd than Dems already do. Remember this?

They’ve managed to get more absurd. That takes skill….real willful-ignorance!

 

A whine. I’m sick of the phone companies and computer companies and tech companies thinking they own my phone and my computer. I’m sick of my stuff constantly “updating”, which updates are usually just things they think I need, like changing the solitaire game or something equally important. Right now every time I play solitaire I get a dialogue box that asks if I want to go online and do fun stuff!!!. It doesn’t give me the option of “No”, I can do it now or later. Since I never play solitaire while I’m online, I think I piss it off.

My phone is full of Google apps. I keep turning them off and they keep turning back on. I can turn off “Google Location Service” a brazilion times and it comes back on a brazilion and one.

As most of us saw at Ace’s, Google does manually change searches so it’s harder to find stuff they don’t want us to find.

I’m about done with Amazon too. I just don’t trust those assholes. And we see this

Amazon.com Inc. employs thousands of people around the world to help improve the Alexa digital assistant powering its line of Echo speakers. The team listens to voice recordings captured in Echo owners’ homes and offices. The recordings are transcribed, annotated

It’s for your own good! You belong them Amazon. Just because I bought the Kindle and buy the books doesn’t mean I own them. Just as with my phone and my computer.

My kindle is also always updating, I can’t stop them from doing it. They’re not fixing anything, they’re just putting in spyware and ads. When I buy a new book and connect to the tubes, it often takes 5 minutes or more before it starts downloading my books.

I’m going to start figuring out another way to get e-books. I will buy lots of actual books, but there are Kindle writers, but I’ll probably get some of them on paper. I am thinking of getting another cheap Kindle and never connecting with the one I now own again.

 

Let’s end on the Feel Good Story of the Decade!

This guy met up with some Antifa Fightin’ Fascists. They found out that, while they’re big on the fascism part, they ain’t so hot at fighting.

Yes. We bullied Antifa. We punched them in the face. We took their flags. And we ate their pizza.

First and foremost, I want to boast that I got to punch a commie. In the defense of one of my fellow Americans that was being attacked, I actually got to punch a commie. Granted, he was a weak, noodle-y looking thing, but I got a shot in before the cops stepped in the middle of it and prevented more. I also got a souvenir from one of them. I kept offering to give it back to them if one of them was brave enough to come and take it from me; sadly, the cowards didn’t take me up on it. As I advised readers not long ago, get yourself to a protest.

Heh. RTWT, it’s pretty darn fun.

That it happened in Austin just makes it sweeter.

I’m just not in the mood, but I have a bunch of tabs open so here we go.

Via Doug at my favorite ‘Stan, with this illustration,

we see this.

Republican congressional leaders perched on the couches in the Oval Office froze in mid-smile on Wednesday afternoon when they realized President Trump was bypassing them to cut a short-term spending and debt ceiling deal with Democrats, and not them.

It’s funny that the Dems are so powerful that from their minority status they can do this deal the GOP is against while the GOP cannot do anything the Dems are against.

Why…. it almost seems as if they’re playing us!?!?!??!?!?!??!!??!?

 

The Debt Ceiling!!!!!!! Debate!!!!! is utterly stupid and ‘inside politics’. The only time they pretend to care about debt is when they have to raise the ceiling.

During the Obama years they huffed and puffed and blew the ceiling down each and every time. I saw an NRO article the other day where they said something stupid about how the GOP beat Obama over this and now Trump’s screwing the whole thing up. Of course, during the Obama years the GOP spent more than a $trillion more than they took in each and every year and yet somehow they Won!!!!! all while never passing a budget.

Don Surber sez that the Dems worked with Hitler because of the failure of the fascist Anti-fa fascist, I think this is more likely.

 The reason is the Democrats need this win. August was horrible for them. They revealed what ugly, hateful, mean, spiteful, and nasty people they are through their Antifa henchmen.

Most Americans think little of the Confederate statues. Risking a civil war to tear them down seems unusually dumb even for Democrats.

Their followers are going fucking insane and the rest of America is noticing that and that the Dems don’t do anything, all they do is stop Congress from doing anything. Ironically, they’re not really stopping anything. The GOP doesn’t want to do what they were elected to do but their failure theater requires that we think the Dems are stopping them. That’s pretty funny.

The Dems needed something the media could claim was a victory for them, but it wasn’t. It was just Trump doing what he’s supposed to do, fuck with the Establishment.

I also disagree with this.

It’s over.

The election is finally over.

Democrats finally have accepted the results.

The funny  part is that the GOP has still not accepted them. They’re still pissed off at us for not jubileeing for Jeb!.

As for the Dems, as FrnakJ explained long ago, there are two classes of Dems. The smelly footsoldiers, who are getting more and more violently mostly-peaceful and the Alphas who come up with shit to rile them up.

I’ve come to believe that the leadership does not believe the stuff they spew at all. I used to think they did, but now I’m pretty sure they do not so what matters is what they  can get Minitrue to spew and Minitrue is the tail trying to wag the dog. Should be interesting.

 

And lest we forget all the GOP ‘Victories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ in the Obama years when they FOUGHT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! over the budget.

Ryan, McConnell Offer Obama-Era Spending Bill With No Border Wall Funding – Updated

Updated with Trump saying he’s fer it. Yeah, he’s still a northeast liberal, you take the bad with the fucking with our betters.

 

Eh, you’ve probably seen this elsewhere but it does make me laugh.

NBC News has published an article incorrectly claiming that New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who is on trial for corruption — is a Republican.

And people think I’m paranoid when I call them Minitrue.

 

The rest of Minitrue were more subtle, they couldn’t find time to cover the corruption trial of a sitting United States Senator.

All three major network newscasts ignored the first day of Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez’s (N.J.) corruption trial during their Wednesday night airings.

Assholes.

 

An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

What America needs is a “New Party,” that would be dedicated to “returning America to the rule of law under the Constitution,” says Angelo Codevilla, professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University.

We can let the GOP have their Inclusive party without the people who’ve been voting for them and giving them money.

The other day I saw a similar idea over at Ace’s, but he figured there’d be 4 parties.

I figure it’ll be three, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party filled with the Elitest!!!! of the Elite!!!!!!!!!! who Elite!!!!!!, another party fulll of disaffected GOP and Dem Americans who like the America of the end of the 20th and early 21st centuries and would like to get it back, and the last one with crazed leftists of all stripes. At least, they’ll try to start their Reality Based Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but they’re short on planning skills and seem overheated. These people may want to check out the review guide for some ACs to get their temperature down! Seriously though they do not have any sense of discipline and only know how to do what they’re told to do (see, FrnakJ above) so I’d expect that one to fizzle out pretty quickly and violently.

 

More substance to Trump’s Unsubstantiated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! comment about illegal voting padding Hillary’s totals.

More than 5,000 out-of-state voters may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle…

 

News We All Knew But Minitrue and Never-Trumpers (Hey NY Post!) Would Like To Have Us Ignore!

So how surprising is this Totally New Information!!!!!?

“We’ve known for months that more voters cast ballots without any proof of actually living in New Hampshire than the differentials for either federal contest there in 2016,” he said.

That new and surprising.

 

Wow. This is both pathetic and scary. So endy and uhhhh…. lamey.

College Activists March on the Cafeteria: What Do We Want? Hydroponic Cilantro!
Students across the U.S. are making some very precise demands of school chefs and dining halls, including a churrascaria, a gelateria and a sushi bar

 

Students returning to the University of Texas at Austin this fall will have twice as much help wrestling with some of the big questions that college presents.

For instance, does water contain gluten? And, is all food genetically modified?

When I went to college in 1981 people were  upset when they ran out of PB&J, how times have changed.

 

In Elgin Marble News, this pisses me off.

600 iconic movie props memorabilia on sale in London including Indiana Jones’ whip and Star Wars Y-wing

WTF are they doing selling them in fucking London? Those are American treasures! Bring them back!

Although maybe it was a package deal.

Also up for grabs is the original costume worn by Will Ferrell in the classic Christmas film Elf.

Not sure if 600 other movie props are worth getting rid of that, there’s a  dumpster right over there (points right).

 

From the Barrel of a Gun we see this.

A different, simpler time.

 

I really like Sig, my SigPro 2340 is a sweet piece. I also like Sig because they really make some cool shit, they used to make a rifle barrel that could be made into a silencer with just a sleeve (or some other simple part) that freaked out the ATF and now this.

I don’t own a Glock (I’m prejudiced against them for some reason) or a High Point but I’ve always liked the idea of a ‘pistol into a carbine’ kit, I might have to get one of those now.

 

What’s bigger than yer anus?

Jupiter!

 

There are some awesome shots of Jupiter there, mostly much closer than that.

Look at the band across the upper part with what looks, to me, like evenly spaced hurricanes, you can see them in a bunch of different shots. Weird. It looks like a belt I saw on a guy in a western once.

 

Let’s end on street art.

Unless, is that a Maine license plate?

Fucking Tard Dog.

His 14th birthday is coming up and he’s been acting very old, he doesn’t even try to chase cats or get up to bark at passers by anymore. He pretty much stopped eating for a few days, not even McD’s cheeseburgers by Wed. I took him to the vet and he pretty much told me to put him to sleep (Kago, not the vet), he found a ‘growth’ in his abdomen.

So I spent a few days just waiting for him to die. It wasn’t a happy time.  Then….. he started eating again last night and even crapped and now he’s back to what he was last week. I was ready for him to die, that sucked, and then he didn’t. Fucking Dickhead, he even fucks with me about death. I still think he’s close, he won’t even eat cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets until evening and he won’t finish what I give him, but for now he’s acting okay.

 

I still tubed but I didn’t feel like posting.

Now that I’ve depressed you too, let’s tube!

If it’s California so you know they’re denying reality!

 In November 2014, California voters approved Proposition 47, which downgraded drug possession and many property crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. As Debra Saunders reminds us, proponents argued that lesser punishment for low-level offenders would enhance public safety.

But wait, reality makes a comeback!

theft from cars is up 47 percent this year over the same period in 2014. Auto theft is up by 17 percent. Robberies are up 23 percent. And aggravated assaults are up 2 percent. (To be fair, burglaries are down 5 percent).

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

Burglaries are probably down because it’s much easier to rob someone on the street, less travel.

 

Yellowcake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An Al Qaeda affiliate has seized control of uranium mines in Africa with the intent of supplying the material to Iran, according to a diplomatic letter from a top Somali official appealing to the U.S. for “immediate military assistance.”

al Quaeda is mining uranium.

So I guess now we know where they were On The Run!!!!!!!!!!! to.

Why…. it’s almost as if they weren’t actually on the run at all!?!?!?!?!?!!!!??!!!!

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children

Who says they’re “conservative”? Besides themselves, their staff and Minitrue I mean. Certainly not this spitting in my face.

Little bit of idiotic editorializing

offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.

No, really.

That’s a Life-Raft to Save Trump from Making A Huge Mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that much of the country wants him to make.

Well, much of the non-Elite!!!!!!!!!!! part of the country.

So that’s the legislative agenda that Trump is stopping them from achieving I guess.

 

 

The other day I wrote that I was leaning toward 2+2=5, now I see that 5+5+5 does not equal 15.

I’ve seen people blaming that on Common Core but I disagree.

Don’t get me wrong, both the ways they show to teach math are idiotic and don’t work (trust me on that, I’ve tried to teach algebra to kids who do multiplication that way).

The whole point of multiplication is to not need to fucking add after all, why the hell would you want them to count lines when they’re supposed to be multiplying? Why would you spend so much time teaching them to add when you’re trying to teach them multiplication? Getting them to memorize the multiplication table is how you teach that shit, that idiocy is going backward.

But the point is that I figure it’s an unqualified bureaucrat who only has the answer key and it said “3+3+3+3+3” so that’s the only answer.

I bet a dollar I could get this teacher to agree with Abbot and Costello if I could edit “Common Core Multiplication” into the beginning of this vid.

 

Taking a break from That’s Funny! (and endy), let’s look at That’s Not Funny!

For those who are trying to defend Trump as not being a Tool of Russia, this ain’t gonna help.

The State Department on Thursday announced that “in the spirit of parity” it would force Moscow to close its Consulate General office in San Francisco

Previous admins forced them to stay in that insane asylum and Trump is letting them leave? Now I have to wonder if they really Hacked The Election for him.

 

After a few months of this number going down but that seems to have stalled.

Tthe (sic, and not my sic!) number of Americans over age 16 who are not in the labor force – for whatever reason – remained stubbornly high in August, at 94,785,000

That sucks.

 

This one made me laugh.

A Georgia police officer who told a woman during a traffic stop not to worry because police “only kill black people”…

But since he made fun of Black Lives Matter, I’ve seen local news assholes calling it a ‘racist remark’, it’s not racist, it’s fucking hilarious, but…

No matter how funny, he made fun of a Protected Group so…. That’s Not Funny!!!!!!!!!!! and he Must Be Punished!

Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register told a news conference: “I’ve already said that in no context can I tolerate this kind of language. And so I don’t really think that we can sit here and justify any type of language when the verbage is what we heard on that video.”

You can even see a clip of Reverend Al talking about the Racism Inherent In The System if you’re so inclined.

 

This is funny, I do wish I had seen the incident(s) that required this sign.

 

Baltimore is wondering what to do to hide it’s slave-owning, Confederate-sympathies past.

(Baltimore Mayor) Pugh has appointed a task force of city workers to decide where the statues should go and what “creative ideas” should replace them.

It’s funny but Bulgaria’s already solved the problem of trying to hide monuments to Democrats’ heroes.

 

Someone should send this to all the Democrats wondering what to do about troublesome examples of Democrats’ past.

Too bad they’re not worried about commie statues here.

 

 

 

 

We have this

Boston is, of course, home to the Freedom Trail.

Welcome to the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that leads you to 16 historically significant sites — each one an authentic treasure. Explore museums and meetinghouses, churches, and burying grounds. Learn about the brave people who shaped our nation. Discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston, where every step tells a story.

That’s the wrong Revolution!!!!!

I wonder if the Freedom Trail is gonna go the way of Buddhist statues in Afghanistan,  Joan of Arc and Abe Lincoln.

All that ‘freedom’ stuff is so bourgeois.

 

15 pictures and vids our fine media betters are busily hiding lest it screw up the Narrative!!!

That’s disturbing enough, but they also have the bit with the fascist asshole on Meet the Press. I caught a few minutes of that. He defended being violent and the asshole ‘interviewing’ him didn’t bat an eye. Not a fucking reaction to a guy who said he was justified in beating on people to keep them from talking.

Our speech is violence, their violence is speech. That ain’t right.

Trump’s gonna be in Phoenix tomorrow, I’m planning on going for a few hours during the day. People will be on line and I’m sure our fine, tolerant, Mostly-Peaceful, fascist anti-fa fascists will be there to be all tolerant and mostly-peaceful.

 

A civil war at Foxnews we’ve been watching for more than a year.
Never Trumpers V Trumpers and journalists like Harris Faulkner and a couple others.

If the Never Trumpers win Foxnews will soon go the way of CNN with MSNBC being the Most Watched Name In News. CNN’s already shown what middle of the road lying fakenewswers get, MSNBC has gone full-on, loud and proud hate and they’ve outperformed CNN consistently.

 

In Establishment Dove news

Coup Coup

The coup against President Trump has been developing for months and can be seen on the nightly news. Yet few talk about what it really means for the country and what can be done to avert this fate.

The problem is that the Important People all see it and they’re not trying to avert it, they’re the ones working it because they see what Trump means for the country, a lessening of their power, so they’re fighting against it.

 

Not important, just sorta funny. I was looking for something about Trump’s visit tomorrow and found this.

The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump’s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.

Now a POTUS who spends money on travel is suddenly a problem after 8 years of First Family separate vacations.

So, it is all Trump?

A special investigative panel formed after a particularly egregious 2014 White House breach also found that that agents and uniform officers worked “an unsustainable number of hours,” which also contributed to troubling attrition rates.

Of course! They could see that in the future Trump would be a doody head!

Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee who was the first lawmaker to sound the alarm after last year’s disclosure that hundreds of agents had maxed out on pay,

Hmmmm, now who was POTUS last year?

 

Why haven’t I posted much lately and why is this so sparse? Because right now the rest of the world can suck it, Mattis and Tillerson, with the occasional boost from our poofy-haired maniac, seem to be doing pretty well scaring our enemies and all that’s going on this country right now is the violent attacks on our freedoms.

I did get some pictures of the eclipse for those who didn’t see it.

Awesome huh?

This is the view on the side of my trailer after looking at the eclipse

I think I got fake glasses.

 

I get some channels on antenna I didn’t get on cable, like Decades.

They show Dick Cavett. I never liked him back in the day, I felt people felt smart and cool when they found him funny and that’s why they liked him. I rebelled against that stuff, yeah, I was anti-elitist at a young age.

I saw an ad for his show and thought that maybe I hadn’t given him a chance when I was 10, but after watching a bunch of shows I see I was right. His show, to me, is one long I’m Smart And Cool and a lots of virtue signalling, but I still like the show because he has the best guests. A Who’s Who of Important People of the day.

The other day I saw elderly Groucho Marx mess with Truman Capote. High-larious. Capote was not used to people who didn’t suck his dick. Cavett was caught in the middle, he didn’t want to piss off Groucho but that’s Truman Capote!!!!. It was low-key and casual enough the Cavett tried to ignore it was happening, but Groucho just kept doing it. He didn’t quite say, “Get off my lawn and take your ‘art’ with you!”, but it was implied.

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!

 

Listen, I’m not sure if someone’s messing with just me or with a lot of us, but it’s really getting harder and harder to take anything I see in the news seriously.

We’re close to war with Russia

The White House said on Monday that coalition forces fighting Islamic State militants in Syria retained the right to self-defense as Russia warned it viewed any planes flying in its area of operations as potential targets…

Russia, a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, said it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft. It stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.

The Russian Defence Ministry said it was also immediately scrapping a Syrian air safety agreement with Washington designed to avoid collisions and dangerous incidents.

and every time I flip to TV news I see something about Trump. Yesterday CNN went on for a little while about Flynn for fuck’s sake.

So what else are they ignoring as they focus on GETTING TRUMP!!!!!!!?

Unmasking Scandal: On Monday, Judicial Watch announced that it hit a dead end in its effort to dig out information about why White House advisor Susan Rice ordered an “unmasking” of Trump campaign officials in classified reports. In response to Judicial Watch’s April 4 request for materials related to these unmasking requests — to determine whether they were politically motivated — the National Security Council said it had sent all those records to Obama’s presidential library, where they can’t be released for five years…

Loretta Lynch Scandal: Despite blanket coverage of James Comey’s testimony about his firing by Trump, few noted the bombshell Comey dropped about Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, who, Comey said, pressured him to downplay the significance of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s reckless handling of classified emails on her private server. Comey said Lynch told him to call it a “matter,” not an investigation.

There’s more. You see, our fine media betters can’t have people getting the wrong idea. They need to understand that Trump is a fascist. If they ever find out how Obama and the rest of the Dem party acted and acts they might think the Democrats are the real fascists!?!?!?! We can’t have that!

 

 

Via Paco, we see something I really didn’t want to know.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University…

Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse…also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation, which was created by Francis Najafi … has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated.

 

Which deal McCain supposedly opposed. Jeffrey Immelt is on the board. You know, the ‘Republican’ head of GE who was such good friends with Obama.

The worst part? That I believe.

 

More of reality intruding on Reality!, it’s not funny but it was entirely predictable.

Let’s Burn Some Cat Fur!

First, Reality!

The term “no-go zone” famously caught on in some international media back in 2015 after it was used by a Swedish newspaper columnist to label these areas, but it has been strongly rejected by police and emergency services themselves.

The police definition describe these districts as socio-economically vulnerable areas with a generally high crime rate. In an especially vulnerable area there are also often parallel societal structures, religious extremism and police regularly have to adapt their methods to the volatile situation. (Ed. This usually means running away) Residents also often do not report crimes, either out of fear of retaliation or because they think it will not lead to anything.

Now reality.

Approached for comment, Stockholm area regional police chief Ulf Johansson said he was not “fully up to date” with details regarding the station’s closure, but told SVT “the premises in Kista left a lot to be desired when it comes to the work environment”.

In March, plans to replace Rinkeby’s police station, which closed in 2014, were put on hold because construction companies feared for the safety of their workforce in the majority migrant suburb, which is notorious for gang and gun crime.

They’re not No-Go Zones! They’re Free-Fire Zones! I just hope they’re sharia-compliant. Wouldn’t want to be racist.

 

Next up

 

Congress is pushing for gun-permit, national reciprocity for them, they should do it for all of us.

And what about their staffs? Why limit concealed carry only to congressmen and women?

Other Republican lawmakers are proposing nationwide reciprocity bills for all permit holders. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) is introducing such legislation this week. Reciprocity would make life simpler for permit holders who travel.

I expect it for them, not for us. They don’t really like us after all

 

This we’ve been watching happen for a long time. I’d say people who have California in the We’re Totally Boned pool still have hope, but those with Illinois have to be feeling hopeful.

With just 10 days to go until Illinois enters its third year without a budget, resulting in the state’s imminent downgrade to junk status and potentially culminating in a default for the state whose unpaid bills now surpass $15 billion, Democratic Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza issued a warning to Illinois Gov. Rauner and other elected officials on Tuesday, saying in a letter that her office has “very serious concerns” it may no longer be able to guarantee “timely and predictable payments” for some core services.

As we saw a few years ago when they gave out IOUs for lottery winners, they’re still having problem paying out on the most profitable ‘gambling’ deal there is.

Illinois is grappling with a full-fledged financial crisis and not even the lottery is safe – with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner warning the state is entering “banana republic” territory.

You know how bookies go broke? They get a big hit they weren’t expecting, the lottery doesn’t have that problem as the payout goes up with pay-in, not odds.

The other ways they go broke are if their protection money is really high or the boss’ son comes in and takes the receipts.

In Illinois, they have both of those problems.

 

Let’s laugh at some stuff that’s just too ridiculous to be true. Global Warmmongering!

Settled Science! seems a lot more unsettled than I would expect.

Indeed, only last week the Spectator published an article by one such Pause Denier – a scientist from the University of East Anglia (ground zero of the Climategate scandal), fondly known as the University of Easy Access, named Phil Williamson.

It is titled The Great Myth of the Global Warming Pause and it claims, somewhat imaginatively:

The Paris agreement will be the future, whereas the so-called global-warming hiatus is already history.

And let’s not forget that in the dog days of the Obama administration, alarmist scientists were so desperate to pooh pooh the “Pause” in the run up to the Paris climate talks that they concocted a junk science paper – now the subject of a federal investigation – which used dodgy data to try to airbrush the Pause out of history.

But wait! There’s Still More!!!!!!!!

A scientific consensus has emerged among top mainstream climate scientists that “skeptics” or “lukewarmers” were not long ago derided for suggesting — there was a nearly two-decade long “hiatus” in global warming that climate models failed to accurately predict or replicate.A new paper, led by climate scientist Benjamin Santer, adds to the ever-expanding volume of “hiatus” literature embracing popular arguments advanced by skeptics, and even uses satellite temperature datasets to show reduced atmospheric warming.

More importantly, the paper discusses the failure of climate models to predict or replicate the “slowdown” in early 21st century global temperatures, which was another oft-derided skeptic observation.

You have to love this

“In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming trends were generally smaller than trends estimated from a large multi-model ensemble,” reads the abstract of Santer’s paper, which was published Monday.

Can you study the climate and still notice reality? I didn’t think that was allowed.

What’s interesting, though, is Santer and his co-authors say their paper is “unlikely to reconcile the divergent schools of thought regarding the causes of differences between modeled and observed warming rates.”

Translation: This ain’t gonna change shit.

Not that I expected it to, I just like watching lefties notice reality before disappearing or learning not to go against the Consensus.

 

Let’s end on the freude we’re getting the most of these days.

Schaden!

When you look like that because your guy lost a House race perhaps you really need to get a fucking life. Jeez.

Speaking of which. Fakenewswers are sad!

Look at those “journalists” sad about some white guy in Georgia losing to a Wymynz. Why are they such racist misogynists? Haters.

 

Minitrue, after explaining how this was a referendum on Trump is evaluating what happened and, since they’re all reality based and shit, they know what’s to blame!

When they lose it’s not their fault, it’s ours.

Or Theirs. You know, Them.

The Shadow People Who Oppose The Rule Of Tolerance, Justice and Mostly-Peace!.

Below the fold, I’ve been trying to learn how to read lips but for some reason I just can’t concentrate on this one even though I can’t fault the enunciation.  Maybe someone could help me with that.

(more…)

First, Something Old.

December, 2011

GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell famously said a year ago that his main task in the 112th Congress was to make sure that President Obama would not be re-elected. Given how he and House Speaker John Boehner have handled the payroll tax debate, we wonder if they might end up re-electing the President before the 2012 campaign even begins in earnest.

 

The article was about some tax deal where the GOP lost…won!. eddiebear handled it with his usual eloquence and restrained commentary.

Fuck you, Mitch McConnell. Brainfuck you with the stupid stick until you get smart. Fuck you for (once again) letting the Obamabots do to you what Bugs Bunny did to Yosemite Sam. Fuck you for giving the O-Bots the high ground on taxes. Fuck you for giving the O-Bots momentum and rising fortunes going into 2012. Fuck you for fucking us over worse than a whore who owes her pimp more than what she pulled in that night. And fuck you simply because I am sick and tired of seeing you stumblefuck from one fuckup to the next.

I miss his posts. H/T whoever came here on a search that found that post.

 

Something New

You have to wonder how liberals think this works. So, a manifestly conflicted special counsel leading a pack of maxed-out Democrat donors decides Donald Trump has to be kicked out of office for “obstructing justice” regarding a cynical lie about him cavorting with the Kremlin and…then what? President Pence, until they do the same thing to him? Or do we just skip right to President Felonia von Pantsuit, shrug our shoulders, and give up on our foolish dream of having a say in our own governance?

Wait, that’s not new!

Because normal Americans are woke to the scam. No, the affidavits of a zillion DC/NY establishment types attesting to Robert Mueller’s impeccable integrity – ever notice how the guy trying to hose us always has the establishment’s “impeccable integrity” merit badge – are not going to make us unsee the fact that he’s carrying water for an establishment that thinks we need to just shut up and obey.

Oh. If true, that’s new.

Now, pulling off the soft coup is going to be harder than they think. The establishment has not thought this out. They sort of assume that if they squelch Trump then everything somehow just goes back to them being in unchallenged control. Wrong.

Bing, bing, bing!!! We have a winner!

They ain’t gonna like what happens next. Kurt Schlichter writes pretty intelligent stuff. You know, stuff that I agree with.

 

Something Borrowed.

Meanwhile, in Mexico City:

A Student Strike Becomes an Occupation, for 17 Years.

Savour that mental image.

It remains unclear exactly who occupies the building and how many members compose the occupying force. Insular and mercurial, they refused repeated requests for interviews. “We’re against the mass media,” explained one occupier, who declined to give his name, saying it was a policy of the occupation not to grant interviews without consent of “the general assembly.” He was standing in what was once the lobby of the auditorium, its walls now covered with insurrectionist stickers, graffiti, posters and murals. “I don’t want to be assimilated into the mass media,” he said.

Oh, there’s more:

And more there is. Click through, it’s hilarious. Various lefty groups keep having coups and counter-coups. I like the part where the anarchists get organized and drive off the rest. That’s funny.

 

Something Blue

Sure it’s cool but it’s fake! notice there are no soldiers in view! Who were they close-air-supporting? Obviously a staged photo-op after the battle was over.

I hate fakes.

 

Everything else is old stuff getting older or new stuff getting pretty dam old.

Something old that’s getting pretty darn old.

The compassionate head tilt makes it funnier.

 

This ain’t new, Gun Control Works!!!!!!!!!!

Investigators have found a cache of weapons at the home of the 31-year-old man who rammed his car into a police van on the Champs Elysees avenue on Monday, a judicial source close to the investigation said…

The revelation of the discovery came after prime minister Edouard Philippe expressed dismay that Dzaziri was able to have a gun permit despite being on a jihadist watchlist.

You think that’s the funniest part? Where have you been? The FEOCE is not new!

Asked to explain why the attacker’s permit wasn’t rescinded, Mr Philippe said that “if you take away a permit from someone who is the subject of surveillance or being monitored, he will quickly understand why it has been taken away. … It’s a difficult decision.”

That makes it for me.  In America our betters are trying to take guns away from people on secret lists, in France they refuse to. Their pols are more in favor of gun rights than ours. As we saw during the Obama years, they kept having “conversations” on “common sense” gun control and only close supervision and letting them know it ain’t gonna happen kept them from screwing us.

 

Speaking of getting pretty fucking old, Common Sense Curbs On The First Amendment!

On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”. The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA…

The resolution refers to hate crimes against Muslims, Jews, African-Americans, Hindus, and Sikhs and was sponsored by Senator Kamala Harris and co-sponsored by Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Senator Susan Collins.

On April 6, almost the exact same text was introduced as House Resolution H.Res. 257, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”. A House Resolution can be reintroduced as legislation.

They’re just resolutions, but both the House and the Senate passed one.

They both say this

Whereas, in 2015, hate crimes targeting Muslims in the United States increased by 67 percent,

cough*bullsthit*cough

According to these two FBI links, 2015

51.3 percent were anti-Jewish.
22.2 percent were anti-Islamic (Muslim).
4.4 percent were anti-Catholic….

52.7 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
18.2 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
9.4 percent were classified as anti-Hispanic or Latino bias.

3.3 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.

 

and 2014

58.2 percent were anti-Jewish.
16.3 percent were anti-Islamic (Muslim).
6.1 percent were anti-Catholic…

63.5 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
22.8 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
5.5 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.

Notice the EXPLOSION of anti-Asian hate! 2/3 increase and I haven’t seen shit about it. Why isn’t anybody talking about that? Does our media hate them?

Also notice the HUGE INCREASE of anti-Catholic hate-crimes! It increased more than both Muslim and Jewish hate crimes and yet, there’s no mention of protecting Catholics in the House and Senate resolutions.

Huh. Why…it’s almost as if they’re posturing assholes who hate their voters and are trying to get new ones!?!?!?!?!

 

This might be new. If it makes it here.

Venezuela is the endgame for the game of Destroy The Rule Of Law our fine betters are playing

It is not just the country’s economy and political system that are sick, but society itself, experts say. An epidemic of lynchings is one of the most gruesome symptoms.

– ‘Justice’ –

AFP journalists filmed a lynching close-up in a busy street in the capital Caracas.

A witness says he stopped the man who had tried to rob a woman at gunpoint in a bakery. Then the mob took over.

“You’re lucky we didn’t burn you,” a voice yells, as police lug the man, limp but still breathing, into the back of their car.

The crowd yells in satisfaction — but not at the man’s arrest. They think they are the ones who have done justice here.

“Their aim is to kill the person before the police arrive,” says Marco Ponce, coordinator of the Venezuelan Social Conflict Observatory (OVCS)…

“In lynchings, citizens let out their anger in the face of a state that is not defending their right to justice,” says Ponce.

But they don’t seem to care. Or possibly they’re really too stupid to realize it.

Actually, I’m gonna go with Hanlon’s Law on this one. They really are that stupid.

 

Speaking of roving bands of vigilantes,  Evergreen College violent fascists will never get old.

A telling exchange, one of many:

“It essentially sounded like you were being held hostage. If you wanted to go to the bathroom, you had to go with two escorts – is that true?”

“Erm, that’s what the students felt was true. I was going to go to the bathroom regardless and they wanted to escort me.”

“Why?”

“Why what?”

“Why did they want to escort you to the bathroom?”

“I don’t know.”

“Did you ask them?”

“No, of course not.”

From Michael Moynihan’s short film on events at Evergreen State College, where ‘progressive’ utopia is under construction.

Lovely

In the thread below, several commenters note that the dramas at Evergreen – this Theatre of the Bedlamites™ – is merely an extension and enactment of the values being inculcated by the staff. After years of wearing away the customary moral and behavioural restraints, and after years of rewarding pathological vanities and delusions of persecution, the leftist bureaucrats and educators were caught off-guard by the speed and vehemence with which their own protégés turned on them, using mob force and well-practised spite, and merrily wielding baseball bats. Which reveals just how blinded by ideology, and how ludicrous, and unfit, those educators are.

Tolerance!

 

Speaking of the old story of commies coddling their crazy brethren, China and the Norks!

Can China restrain the Norks? My opinion is, of course, that of course they can but they don’t want to. The Plausible Deniability Province of the Chinese empire.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis will meet with their Chinese counterparts…

The top U.S. priority at the dialogue is finding common ground with China on curbing North Korea’s nuclear weapon and missile development…

I wonder what we’ll have to give China. I just hope Tillerson knows the real deal. I figure he does, Exxon can’t ignore reality. Mattis probably knows for sure.

As part of upholding a UN Security Council resolution, China announced in late February that it would no longer receive coal imports from North Korea…

While China has upheld its commitment to the coal ban, it has purchased greater quantities of iron ore, low-end manufactured goods, and seafood – goods not strictly banned by the UN –  resulting in an overall increase in trade revenue for North Korea

Yup

Beijing may also be dissuading Chinese businesses from contracting North Korean labor, a practice the UN identifies as exploitative, and it estimates 50,000 workers worldwide may generate as much as $1.5 billion for the state. As many as 19,000 of these workers are in China. According to the Nikkei Asian Review, beginning in March of last year, Chinese officials began informally telling firms in the provinces bordering North Korea not to contract North Korean workers. While this measure is useful to Beijing for registering “its displeasure with Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear testing,” as an informal policy, it could be easily reversed and does not demonstrate a strong commitment to the sustained pressure needed to demonstrate cooperation to the U.S. and to bring North Korea back to negotiations.

All that means  is, “Let’s give the media something to talk about.” and our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters either fall for it or pretend it’s real. It doesn’t really matter either way I guess. I just like to figure stuff out.

 

Speaking of Old, EUnuchs are energy-dependent on Russia so their foreign policy reflects that!

Nord Stream 2 was concluded after the annexation of Crimea by Putin’s Russia, the war against Ukraine, and the shooting down over Ukraine of the MH17 passenger plane. European consumers will pay for the gas, and the money will go to the Putin regime, strengthening it. There is a high probability that, as usual, the Kremlin will spend the proceeds on propaganda, repression, new wars, and annexations – and Europe will be paying for it.

A Nord Stream representative brushed off these concerns, saying it was all “political speculation … we have already been working with Gazprom for 19 years and are going to continue mutually beneficial cooperation”.

That’s so old and obvious our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters have never even thought of it!

 

I’ve seen a bunch of people making fun of the new Ken dolls. I mostly don’t get it, I mean, it’s for little girls. Is a doll with a man bun really going to be a problem? I’d be more upset about boy bands and Disney sluttifying every girl they get their perverted hands on.

Now, if I were going to do some OUTRAGE MONGERING!!!!! about the new Ken doll, I’d discuss the racism inherent in this picture.

What’s up with putting Fat Ass Barbie with Black Ken? Isn’t that racial profiling?

I’m going to boycott Barbie!!!! I’ll never guy another one! Never another penny!

 

This is going to revolutionize the criminal justice system!
