“Reality” is winning on points, but sooner or later reality will stage a comeback. Sorta like how it took a few decades before the reality that the Roman Empire had fallen was obvious to everybody.
First, I’m gonna disagree on this.
That’s not irony, that’s reality. Socialism always costs more than free enterprise. It’s just axiomatic.
The comment are funny too. Some people get very upset when you make fun of their religion.
Why didn’t we hear about this until now?
A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.
And what happened to that issue?
The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,”
Buried. Notice they were “outside the retention time”. In other words, the FBI worded the subpoenas so narrowly that anything not from a certain window (probably 2/1/15 3pm-2/1/15 3:05PM would be my guess) so that they could ignore what they found.
Lest we forget, the DO”J” is full of a bunch of lawless assholes and they made the FBI into Hillary’s Bitches.
Some people just refuse to accept reality.
Obamacare overhaul similarly fails, no honest analyst will be able to blame conservatives. Blame will belong wholly to centrist Republicans…
In every election campaign since 2010, every Republican has pledged to repeal Obamacare. Since Republicans rode that promise to a House majority that year, the House has voted more than 90 times for repeal (symbolic votes, all, under President Barack Obama). Now the Freedom Caucus has announced its support for an amended repeal bill, Republicans are closer than ever to finally delivering on their promise. It relies only on centrists to rejoin their party on this crucial issue for which the voters put them in office.
“Centrists” are just members in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. They do not want to lose the power over us that Obamacare gives them. If they don’t control our lives, they cannot demand bribes and kickbacks on how they dole out our rights.
The GOP has lied to us. It’s much harder to keep Obamacare going than to get rid of it. So they’re busy making sure it does not go away.
Our best hope is the GOP fucks us again so Trump just undoes all the memoes, phone calls and executive orders Obama did to keep it from imploding.
I watched Shep for a few minutes the other day, he was talking about Venezuela and he acted as if the protestors were getting violent. He showed them in Gas Masks!!!!!!!!! but he called them, “Masks”, as in, “Protestors wearing masks!!!!!!” and then a few images of violent protestors building barricades.
Then he showed gov’t folks shooting tear gas into the crowds. Shep did not notice or mention that maybe, just fucking maybe Shep you leftist piece of shit, the protestors were wearing those “masks” because the murderous forces of the murderous dictator/nee secret policeman were murdering protestors!
Repression in Caracas on Wednesday was probably the worst in three weeks of protests. While usually satisfied with choking us but allowing us some margin of movement, this time they used enough tear gas to make us reconsider coming back, or prevent a gathering altogether.
Yesterday, Juan Pablo Pernalete Llovera, a 20-year old student, was murdered. A tear gas canister hit him in the chest as he protested in Altamira and, sadly, he arrived at Salud Chacao with no vital signs.
Nah. To the piece of shit leftists in Minitrue (hey Shep!), the forces of a socialist gov’t are ‘good’, protestors against them are ‘bad’.
When they don’t ignore it. Venezuela is exploding and it was blatantly obvious that it was going to happen to everyone except our Elites!, cuz they’re idiots.
Mister We Could Use A Man Like Phillip Of Macedon Again!
Protesters have stormed the parliament of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats in a bid to stop the formation of a new government.
See, they’re thinking.
I wonder how long until that happens here and how Minitrue will blame me when it’s masked leftists doing it. Most righties will just ignore them. There is no rule of law, why pretend we still have it and act as if Congress is important? Only our imperial judiciary and Trump matter right now. Congress has spent the last decades abdicating their responsibilities, ever since Clinton’s impeachment when they realized the media was more powerful.
Okay, I don’t know French attitudes, but this makes me laugh. Macron is the far leftist left in the race against the FAR RIGHT HATER!!!!! LePen.
“In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland,” Macron told reporters of several regional French newspapers including Ouest-France. “You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.”
Macron’s comment indicates the staunchly pro-EU candidate, who promises to reassert France’s leading position within the bloc and play an integral role in shaping its future, will actively enforce the bloc’s democratic liberal values at a time when EU leaders are faced with reshaping and shoring up solidarity within the union pre-Brexit.
That’s probably a winner, the EU was supposed to be a way for France to rule Europe, they can’t allow them lowlife Poles and Hungarians to think they control their countries!
Recall, the Hungarians are not allowing Muslim refugees in their country. They even respond to violence with violence! All right thinking people know that you don’t counter violence with violence! You figure out how you angered the poor-downtrodden people and appease them. Unless they’re not an approved lefty group, then you crush them.
Okay, I’d say this is a loser.
The National Front’s history of anti-Semitism intruded on the French election campaign again on Friday as polls suggested front-runner Emmanuel Macron’s 20-point lead may be narrowing a touch.
Marine Le Pen’s far-right party forced acting president Jean-Francois Jalkh to step aside after comments from 17 years ago questioning the Holocaust resurfaced in the French media,
If there’s one thing most French don’t care about it’s who hates the people from That Shitty Little Country. It is pretty funny that the lefties who hate Jews as much as most Arabs are acting all, “Oooh, look at the anti-Semitism!”
Speaking of Nazis, I think I found the original maker of Billy Bier.
once was an actual Hitler of shithead relatives — and no, not that one, either. In a quirky twist of fate, the Universe saddled even that goose-stepping genocidal maniac with a slimy, opportunistic, clingy black sheep to ruin his Christmases: Adolf’s “loathsome nephew,” Willy Hitler…
On the strength of his last name alone, Willy gained access to all the parties, women, and cocktail shrimp Berlin had to offer. It was wild. Gaggles of Hitler groupies lined up for the chance to get their Aryan mitts on Willy’s little willy. On the family side, however, things weren’t going too great. Dissatisfied with his crappy job at the bank, Willy asked Uncle Adolf to help him get a better grip on those evil coattails of his. It was around this time that the fuhrer starting referring to Willy as “my loathsome nephew” and accusing him of trying to “climb on my back.”
Sounds like a cross between Billy Carter and Roger Clinton.
This is fucked up. I’m not sure who the players are, I do know the TWP are white nationalists but I don’t know anything else about them and I’m not sure if Anti-fa are involved or just mentioned later on. Since the organizers for the rally are all Dems, I’m gonna guess they’re not anti-fascist, just anti-other-people’s-fascists. Like in Iraq how Sunnis liked Sunni terrorists and Shiites liked Shiite terrorists.
Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.
In a statement posted to the group’s Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.
In the statement, she said “unforeseen credible threats” forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.
I do have high hopes for this though.
“The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict.
Now if we could just get the Westoro Baptist FreakShow to get involved we could have some guilt-free violence to watch. Watching nazis beat fascists is hilarious.
Has anybody heard about this?
An American paramedic working with a security watchdog in eastern Ukraine has been killed after the vehicle he was in drove over a mine.
The US citizen, who has not been named, was part of a patrol involved in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Special Monitoring mission in the country.
Two other monitors, a German and a Czech, were injured in the blast, near Luhansk. It has led US officials to call for a ‘full, transparent investigation’.
Why haven’t we heard of an American being killed by Tsar Putin I’s cossacks?
But since signing deal the sides appear stuck in a stalemate broken periodically by sharp resurgences of fighting that Kiev and the Kremlin accuse each other of instigating.
Tillerson told Poroshenko that although Washington wanted better ties with Moscow, ‘Russia´s actions in eastern Ukraine remain an obstacle’.
On Monday Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, also called for an investigation to be conducted into the explosion.
Oh, the Russians are going to investigate!
We could lend them some of our crack FBI agents from the Hillary Task Force!!!!, they’re good at covering up crimes.
Canada is getting a look at the reality that is their place in the world.
Nobody’s going to invade Canada unless they’re already at war with us, but Canada cannot project power and Russia wants the oil under Arctic ice that Canada wants.
Guess who’s most likely going to get it?
Russia unveils its newest Arctic base
Russia has unveiled a new military base as part of its buildup in the Arctic region, and has provided a tour — albeit a virtual one on your computer.
The tsar willing to go to war to get it. Canada surely isn’t.
Funny, what with their problems with illegal immigration and now a warlike neighbor, they could use a Trump. But they have a Kelso.
The reality of the state of politics in America.
A two-bit political gadfly named Thomas Lopez-Pierre has been running for City Council on an outrageous platform that calls for stopping “greedy Jewish landlords” from committing “ethnic cleansing” against blacks.
Yawn. Typical Democrat so far.
as Jewish groups and leaders demanded he be booted out of the Democratic Party.
Wait, why? Isn’t that the official Democrat Party Platform? Black Lives Matter, not zionist lives.
Here’s where I wonder if he’s planning on joining the GOP.
In the midst of this firestorm a GoFundMe called “Stop Thomas Lopez-Pierre Hate Campaign” suddenly popped up and was so successful, it raised $5,781.
But anyone who donated hoping to actually stop Lopez-Pierre is going to be sorely disappointed — because the page was created by the candidate himself to scam money from his foes.
“I call it bait and switch,” Lopez-Pierre actually bragged to The Post.
“I intend to use the money to pay for my marketing expenses. The people who are doing this [donating] oppose me. I thank them for their support.”
How is that different from winning election after election and raking in $millions in donations precisely to repeal Obamacare and then not repealing Obamacare? How about how they boned us on illegal immigration?
So a Dem platform with GOP tactics. A Centrist!
I’m all for this.
And now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has examined what happens to the data that’s collected from students using technology in the classroom. They released the results of an extensive survey covering students in grades K-12.
What they found was that little work has been done to protect the privacy of the student information that is collected from both the classroom and from using the online software the schools issue for use at home on the students’ own devices. They found that while many school districts have embraced technology and all of the benefits it can bring to the schools and students, often little thought has been given to one of the unintended consequences of this: the students’ privacy.
School is for learning. Let them learn what their betters think of them. Right now, they seem to think our fine betters give a shit about them. That’s a dangerous belief. Our betters only care about our voting for them, sending them money and shutting the fuck up.
Speaking of schools and learning, is Duke actually going to stop going all in on social justice and SCIENCE!!!!!! and actually do some science?
We have another study from Duke University that shows groundwater isn’t being polluted by fracking, despite the cries from the environmentalists that the process, which is used to tap into natural gas resources. It’s been the crux of their narrative against this sector of the economy that’s rapidly growing throughout the country. The study was three years in the making, peer reviewed, and was recently published in the European journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.
Heretics! Burn them! They do have to state the obvious to try to keep up their SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!! cred.
They did say that surface water might be impacted due to spills:
So what you’re saying is that spilling oil on the ground means there will be oil on the ground and it could run into waterways that go through the ground? The deuce you say!
Macauley Culkins parents are the scum of the Earth and should be jailed, at least, for what they did to their kid.
If, like so many pop fans, you have always yearned to see a three-minute music video that brings together Bill Clinton, Garfield’s cartoon owner Jon Arbuckle and a Viagra-taking George Washington wearing a virtual reality headset, then your agonizing wait is finally over…
The video features the founding father apparently pleasuring himself to the vision of Kurt Cobain—played by Macaulay Culkin—being whipped, nailed to a cross and declared “King of the Cucks.”
Poor bastid. First his parents took all his money and then they sold him to Michael Jackson. So sad.
Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva.
More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland…
Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.
Michael Starrett, Heritage Council Chief Executive, said: ‘HeritageMaps.ie a fantastic tool for learning, discussion and interpretation, making cultural data available to everyone.
At least, unlike the Mona Lisa, we know why she’s smiling.
Sometimes things that seem so brilliant are the opposite.
Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him.
That epitomizes the sentiment most people have had, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”
I did this with a 72 Chevelle Malibu and a dumpster instead of a bicycle and a wall.
The girl bending over into her car turned around just as I hit the dumpster at about 5mph. I didn’t get her number.
