How does fakenews happen?

Yesterday we made fun of the Wash Post about their SCOOP!!!!! that Trump outed Valerie Plam…ummm…what the hell did he do? Oh yeah, something about Russia.

 

So today Trump said that he talked to the Russians about intelligence. Which is exactly what the fuck he said yesterday.

And now we see Concerned Conservatives like Capt. Boring/Ed Morrissey at Hot Air say,

I guess everyone can put the #fakenews hashtag away for a while, eh? Yesterday, the White House had nat-sec advisor H.R. McMaster issue a broad but unspecific denial after the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump had blurted out highly classified intel to the visiting Russian delegation last week. Rex Tillerson followed suit and the White House communications team issued a terse denial before heading behind closed doors for a meeting.

This morning, as what seems to be a developing pattern, Trump took to Twitter and made hash of the hashtag from his supporters, as well as of White House communications strategy:

Yeah, no. Trump  takes to twitter to say (read the comments on his tweets, there are some angry people out there)

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.

Yesterday the Wash Post said Trump had jeopardized intelligence gathering, McMaster said, “ummmm, no.”, today nothing we’ve seen contradicts that, but everybody is tut-tutting Trump for…uhhhh….. being hated by Minitrue as nearly as I can tell.

Claire Sez

what’s that word….?????

That Rooski word for destroying a country by intentionally creating doubt in the people that there is actually any way whatsoever for them to learn the facts of what is going on.

Not sure of the Russian word, I’d go with Minitrue in English. Here’s the kicker, the part that all Concerned Conservatives are upset about.

Specifically, [Trump] is said to have described the details of an Islamic State threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft. The information itself was reportedly provided by a close Middle Eastern ally.

To which Claire responds

wait…. I heard about that on the nooz…
*I* heard about that on the nooz…

Sorry for the language, they don’t curse much at Sondrakistan, that’s another difference from Alextopia.

 

News from last year!

Liberals Are An Inferno Of Flaming Crazy And We Should Pour Gasoline On The Fire

Don’t get me wrong, that’s a good article and I suggest you read it, but where was he last year? That was one of the biggest reasons for voting for Trump, now we’re just roasting marshmallows and popcorn over the fire.

 

Let’s Drudgetapose!

 

Hillary 2015

“We have to end the flood of secret, unaccountable money that is distorting our elections, corrupting our political system, and drowning out the voices of too many everyday Americans,” Mrs. Clinton said in a statement. “Our democracy should be about expanding the franchise, not charging an entrance fee. It starts with overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and continues with structural reform to our campaign finance system so there’s real sunshine and increased participation.”…

She would end secret, unaccountable money in politics…(emphasis me)

Hillary 2017

Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton officially launched a new organization on Monday, “Onward Together,” with the stated goal of “advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.” Put more bluntly, the group’s mission is to advance Clinton’s agenda, which was unable to defeat Donald Trump.
But buried on the donation page is this nugget:

First, you know it has to kill her that bribes paid to her are no longer tax-deductable.

Second, that is one awkward, Engrishy, second sentence. As nearly as I can tell that sentence should read, “Only US citizens or lawfully…can contribute”.

Third, do you get shirts when you become a member? Are they black or brown? Any armbands?

Clintons lie. It’s what they do. They also grift. It’s the other thing they do. Hillary also fascists, it’s what she does.

 

Nothing major, just a reminder about the Unproven Accusation About Voter Fraud!

Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from noncitizens on Nov. 8, an approximation far short of President Trump’s estimate of up to 5 million illegal voters but supportive of his charges of fraud.

Just remember, if it’s not fakenews it’s not at the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc.!

 

Speaking of fascists, the IRS fascists who decided people they disagree with politically deserve no rights,

Current and former IRS officials are asking not to publicly testify about the agency’s alleged bias against Tea Party and other conservative organizations, claiming they are in danger if they do so.

Former official Lois Lerner and Holly Paz both argued in recent filings under seal in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati that the death threats and other harassment…

I can understand that and even agree. If they tell the truth, well.

There is tangible evidence on the laptop of a former DNC staffer that confirms he was talking to WikiLeaks prior to his murder, a private investigator suggested Monday

Dead minions tell no tales.

 

The Far Right Preaches Traditional Values!!!!! Can they accept a lesbian?

Weidel’s rise is the latest expression of a growing, if seemingly ironic, trend. In their policies, nationalist movements in the West often oppose full gay rights, including same-sex marriage. (any examples Wash Post? No? Because Everybody Knows That!!!!!!!!!!!! V)

 

Meanwhile, in Akbar Britain, the Far Right is pushing traditional values but there is pushback by their betters!

The leaders of radical right-wing party Britain First have been arrested following a “campaign” related to an ongoing rape trial at a court in Kent.

So what sort of campaign?

Kent Police said the arrests related to “leaflets and videos posted online” that were linked to an ongoing trial at Canterbury Crown Court. The court case involves the alleged gang rape of a 16-year-old girl.,,

“We were driving to a meeting through Kent and the traffic in front of us stopped,” Fransen told IBTimes UK. “A marked police van had stopped diagonally in front of the cars.

“Then other police cars flew up behind and alongside us and officers leaped out …. they pulled us both out [of the car].”

She added: “It was like watching a Swat team. They were obviously waiting for us on this route.”

As we saw the other day, they’re trying to stop it. Their betters are saying it’s culturally inappropriate to oppose that.

Some days I really hate people. I call those days, “Today”.

via our favorite smell.

 

I realize I shouldn’t have linked them because Jihadwatch is all about Teh Hateism, so let’s palate-wash with this acceptable free speech!

Last Thursday, I (Robert Spencer) gave a lecture on the jihad threat at the Grand Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland. Shortly thereafter, a young Icelandic Leftist registered his disapproval of what I said by poisoning me.

 

Can’t we all just get along?

 

I do have to give a mea wronga. I’ve said that commies cannot innovate, I wuz wrong,

Nevertheless, the Castro dictatorship is not a failure at everything it does. There is one thing they are particularly good at: repression. It is a skill they have been honing now for more than a half century. While innovation and ingenuity are foreign terms to the Cuban dictatorship when it comes to the economy and civil society, they are constantly innovating and coming up with ingenious new methods of repression.

Cuba is second only to China, the Norks and Berkeley in shutting down free speech!

 

I’ve come to the conclusion that doves are the dickheads of the desert/avian world.

They attack other birds, they constantly coo at me, they attack each other and the kicker, they eat from a dickhead’s bowl

Kago doesn’t eat his dry food plain anymore, I cook crappy, sleeve, 73% hamburger and put it and the grease over his dry food.

Those doves are eating hamburger-grease-infused dog food.

Are they becoming carnivorous?

Luckily, I have a gun for that!

.22/.410 with birdshot.

I have a few 000buckshot shells for it too, they’re for coyote.

in a real death waltz between what’s flesh and what’s fantasy. (spoiler alert: fantasy is ahead on points)

Time to take our stand, our fine betters are busily making sure we live in jungleland.

An internal FBI investigation into the spike of attacks on law enforcement has determined that revenge, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the media’s assault on police shootings, and criticism from politicians, is the what motivates a “majority” of those targeting cops.

“Law enforcement officials believe that defiance and hostility displayed by assailants toward law enforcement appears to be the new norm,”

We’ve been watching millennia of progress wiped out in education and now in civil society we’re basically at the “Attack The Other!!!!” phase in evolution.

Filling in the for the neanderthals is……us!

Detailing when fantasy conflicts with flesh in two graphics and a reminder.

We all saw in Berkeley what happens when fantasy meets reality.

That flag should read, “We Will Be Trod!”

 

 

GOP voters device

Crap. I got out my squeezy bulb and I didn’t even need it!?!?

Susan Rice has denied a request to testify in front a Senate judiciary subcommittee next week on Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Oh, she declined the honor? Obviously there’s nothing Congress can do now! I mean, if she says she’s not gonna testify their hands are tied!

 

I absolutely do not understand why the puppy blender doesn’t seem to agree with this sentiment.

What with the blatant fake-newsing and pathetic lies, they’re doing as much to ensure Trump is re-elected as they ever did for Obama.

 

Via Say Uncle we see the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is Dedicated To Diversity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stacy Washington’s column will no longer appear in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Her active promotional activities and professional association with the National Rifle Association represented an unacceptable conflict of interest

Well, not so much diversity as uniformity of thought.

Sorry for any confusion due to thinking that the state of journalism is anything but “Screw You America.”

Read the comments, they’re funny.

Interesting! I was informed of Stacy’s NRA membership last year, WHEN THE POST- DISPATCH INTRODUCED STACY! Guess that slipped by you, huh?

Way to increase your readership

 

That’s not their priority. If you think of it as “tithing”, things make much more sense.

 

Trump Is Doing Away With The Obama Brand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There’s so much funny with that article.

First, they say it like it’s a bad thing.

But the apparent retiring of the title associated with the Obama era is still seen by some as an attempt to eradicate anything linked to the previous administration.

We wish.

Second, this

Some outside observers argue that Trump could be trying to shore up his own support by taking a scythe to Obama-era policies and programs.

Yeah, see…that’s why he was elected so instead of “shore up his own support” you minitrue assholes could have written, “keep his campaign promises” but then the Hill would have to acknowledge reality.

Third,

Jen Psaki, Obama’s former communications director, said it was “surprising and politically stupid

 

And she’s an expert on surprisingly stupid! The one person in the Obama admin who could make Marie Harf look semi-intelligent.

Fourth

The new president’s now-infamous tweets making the unsupported allegation that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower

Still fucking that “unsupported” chicken.

Fifth

While Trump defenders argue that there is nothing unusual about a new president of one party moving in a sharply different direction from his predecessor, voices within the Obama camp characterize the Trump approach as petty,

No really. They quoted Obama people as calling someone, anyone, ‘petty’. He of the “barrycades”, the casual, ‘scratching my nose with my middle finger’ childishness,

They let Obama’s peeps call someone, anyone, “petty”. Obama and his entire admin should be barred from calling anybody ‘petty’. Even Richard Petty.

Sixth, and this one’s on Trump (or Tillerson I guess)

…State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert…

Heather Nauert? Doesn’t she have some J-school projects to do so she can pretend she’s a journalist?

Did someone make a rule that State spokespersons are supposed to 30 year old cute nitwits?

Seventh!

Attacking Obama keeps people’s focus away from the first 100 days of non-accomplishment.”

Other chicken minitrue is fucking. “Trump hasn’t done anything in his first 100 days!!!!! Except try to undo Obama’s Legacy!!!! which has nothing to do with why he was elected so even though we’re whining about him undoing Obama’s Legacy that doesn’t mean he’s accomplished anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I’m sure I’ve missed some funny, but I’m ODing on schadenfreude.

 

Coupla Dave Barry links.

 

Oh man, that ain’t right.

We’re sorry to spread the news to Skippy fans: the peanut butter — both the crunchy and smooth version — is no longer available in Canada.

If only I were allowed in Canada, I can see a decent opportunity there. This makes me laugh, I wonder if it’s true.

We’re a vast country with only 36 million people. The distribution costs are really high,” Charlebois said, adding that the extra cost of required French labelling may have also been a deterrent.(emphasis me V)

Funintended consequences always bite you in the nut(s).

 

A bet: As the gov’t is doing this, Canadians are scouring their country for these

Liquor authorities across Canada are recalling a brand of gin that may contain almost twice as much alcohol as claimed on the bottle.

Does it make you go blind? No? There’s not too much alcohol in it.

That’s how you tell.

 

The world is sorely lacking in people who say, “You know. Maybe that isn’t such a good idea.”

WTF? While I applaud that they accept that girls are where cooties come from, they seem to take it too far.

 

Mae govannen vanima!

Wanna see my flet?

 

I’m a little disappointed, nobody made fun of my “ohm i” pun.

Listen, how am I going to keep consistently hitting the lowest rung of the humor ladder if I don’t get encouragement?

Oh…..

Bastids!

So how do the two parties treat Americans?

Let’s start with the Dems.

Hillary blames her election loss on: her pet media, debate monitors not asking her some questions about some made-up, fantasy, saved-or-created jobs she created, the FBI, misogyny, the laughable idea that Putin apparently preferred the unknown Trump (who probably has bribed Putin) to the often and easily bribed Clinton, he’s been bribing Clintons since the 90s, and more. I’m sure I’m missing a few.

In other words, it had nothing to do with her, it’s all the voter’s fault for not recognizing her greatness and everybody else’s fault for not letting the idiot voters know.

A visual representation

 

On the other side of the aisle, we have the GOP we keep electing to get rid of Obamacare, do something about our porous borders and stop lax enforcement of laws against lefty-approved folks.

So how are they doing?

They’re getting right on Building That Wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laura Ingraham: One thing I know for sure, Sean, is that we have way too many people on Capitol Hill who are not on the president’s side of this. I’m talking Republicans. So I have no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump wants this wall to be built. Congress has to appropriate the money. I heard over two months ago that GOP leadership, the most senior senators on Capitol Hill, and I heard it from someone who was in the room with them, they were laughing at an idea a wall would ever get built. Out loud laughing. They were recently telling that source of mine, “Don’t worry, it’s not going to happen.” (emphasis him, V)

 

Oh, but they have been getting right on repealing Obamacare!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Several Republicans have come out Monday against the current measure to repeal and replace Obamacare, bringing CNN’s whip count to 21 Republicans — mostly moderates — opposed to the bill with at least 17 lawmakers still undecided.

Moderates are against it? It’s hard to figure out, but I think this is it

Pressed further, Trump said that “we actually have a clause that guarantees” coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Trump also said the health care legislation is “changing.”
Unlike the mandate under Obamacare, however, under the GOP bill insurers could charge them higher rates than others in the plan if they allow their coverage to lapse.

So in other words, it seems moderates are against introducing even a little sanity into the gov’t take-over of my life is DOA.

A visual representation of how the GOP has treated me over the last few elections with coming attractions for the next few elections no matter who we vote for.

 

 

Here we have Hillary, who only wants what’s best for hersel…America, saying that Trump and Russia colluded on enforcing Obama’s red line.

Sometimes shit comes out of the woods.

I blame the bears.

 

Okay, this one’s hilarious. 100 days into Trump’s first term we’ve been watching them get more and more ridiculous but seriously, if the left didn’t have crazed hyperbole all they’d have would be violent, smelly, hippies.

Historian Timothy Snyder: “It’s pretty much inevitable” that Trump will try to stage a coup and overthrow democracy.

Geez, at least wait until he’s running for re-election. I mean, it’s not as if you can’t re-use it 4 years later. Heaven knows we all worried about Obama doing the same thing but kept our mouths mostly shut until it was time for a presidential election (or after Hillary lost to Russia…Trump).

 

Japan’s Peace Constitution Is Under Pressure!!!!!!!!!!!

Japan’s American-written “peace constitution” has survived unchanged for 70 years, but nationalists seeking an overhaul are gearing up for a major new push as concerns grow over North Korean belligerence.

Conservatives have long called for the document they see as a national humiliation to be amended, but current political alignments and growing security concerns suggest they now have their best chance of success.

Yeah see, enweakening Japan was only workable if we were trustworthy in their defense. Since we’re no longer trustworthy (we elected Obama twice and almost elected Hillary after all) they need to be able to defend themselves.

I just hope that if they get all empirey they look at China and don’t start looking for revenge for those two cities.

 

I don’t like this, but it’s about what I would have expected. Trump is a northeast liberal and has been running in those circles his whole life.

Jared Kushner failed to disclose his ownership of a real estate startup linked to Goldman Sachs and George Soros, according to a report Tuesday.

Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, didn’t note on his government financial disclosure form that he is a part-owner of real estate finance firm Cadre, which matches investors with real estate projects, the Wall Street Journal reported.

If you’re involved in big money, you’re involved with all the same people.

I have no hopes for the GOP doing anything useful, I’m still hoping that Trump undoes as much of Obama’s law breaking…making as possible but not accepting he’s Rudy Giuliani with more business sense is just not paying attention.

 

The Post does say bad things about Dems, but they also go after Trump pretty hard.

Headline

Trump’s comment about breaking up banks jolts markets

Body of article that shows headline to be misleading at best and fake-news at normal.

In an interview at the Oval Office, Trump told Bloomberg News that he was “looking into” reviving the Glass-Steagall Act, a law that kept separate commercial and investment banks.

A revival of Glass-Steagall, which he described as “the old system,” has been a feature of Trump’s agenda since at least August, when it was on the Republican Party’s platform, and has been discussed by high-level White House surrogates…

When Bloomberg’s ultra-fast headline wire service reported the story, however, that nuance had been lost: “TRUMP SAYS HE’S ACTIVELY CONSIDERING BREAKING UP BIG BANKS,” (emphasis me this time, V)

 

So what you’re saying is that his statement was misreported (totally accidentally I’m sure), and yet your headline blames it on Trump.

Never change Never Trumpers.

 

Can you say Revenue Generation?

Almost Every Speed Limit Is Too Low. “Traffic engineers believe that the 85th percentile speed is the ideal speed limit because it leads to the least variability between driving speeds and therefore safer roads. When the speed limit is correctly set at the 85th percentile speed, the minority of drivers that do conscientiously follow speed limits are no longer driving much slower than the speed of traffic. The choice of the 85th percentile speed is a data-driven conclusion—as noted lieutenant Megge and speed limit resources like the Michigan State Police’s guide—that has been established by the consistent findings of years of traffic studies. Yet most speed limits are set below the 85th percentile speed.”

I knew that you could. Safety is not the point, getting the maximum blood from our stones is.

 

I was wrong about one thing, apparently Congress is doing something about a signature Obama priority!

The Post-9/11 GI Bill has been formally put on the chopping block in effort to free up funds needed cover roughly $108 billion worth of student loans being forgiven by the federal government, sources confirmed today.

While millions of debt-saddled young college graduates breathed a sigh of relief, the Department of Defense announced that as of January 1, 2018, the GI Bill will be no more – meaning service members and veterans alike will have to cough up their own money for higher education.

The move comes as Congress and student veteran groups had been debating an improvement to the current GI Bill program which would have “taxed” troops out of their paycheck to pay for higher education. Instead, leaders decided to get rid of the entire program in favor of helping everyone except veterans, in keeping with standard operating procedure.

If only that were less likely it would be a lot funnier.

 

So what have we learned? Not a blessed thing.

I refuse to leave it at that! Let’s me put some geography learnin’ on your ass!

There’s a pass in the Urals that’s perfect for motor-boating.
No, really. I always thought it was cold and snowy but if you look on this map you’ll see a warm and inviting pass in the Urals perfect for motor-boating!

 

You can tell it’s not cold by the lack of peaks.

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

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

So what’s my prediction?

More investigations and allegations of not being sufficiently EUnuch.

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

De-fucking-spicable.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

 

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

Noticing Something That Has Been Eminently Noticeable For 8 Years!

Political correctness is ruining our strategy to defeat terrorism

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

 

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

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

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

2000 had that distinction.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

They always act surprised. Every. Single. Time.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

I will say that I absolutely love this quote

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

I’m actually pretty impressed.

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

First, nothing to see here!

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

Tried?

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Worst kept secret ever!

 

In the past month we have learned:

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

First up, journolist tries to recruit the puppy blender!

Hi Glenn Harlan,

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

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

 

Next, CNN shows they got the memo!

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

 

Puffhos got the memo.

Variety too.

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

This one is hilarious.

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

Don’t ever change.

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

 

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

ACLU is right but wrong.

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

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

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

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

 

In Akbar Britain cultural suicide news, Easter Egg Hunt!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

Apparently, Black Lives Matter are demanding Mercedes now.

 

Let’s end on something that would be even funnier if it was accidental.

It’s very subtly funny if it’s on purpose, but if it’s on accident that just makes it a lot funnier.

 

 

 

 

This is sorta opaque.  Ecuador had an election and

There have been clashes on the streets of Ecuador as supporters of the right-wing presidential candidate in a ballot on Sunday claim fraud.

Former banker Guillermo Lasso is set to face narrow defeat but has already announced he disputes the result, calling for a recount.

Supporters of Lasso clashed with police as they took to the streets to protest.

 

I instinctively do not trust lefties when elections are involved, but does the Far Right Wing Hitler!!!!!!!!!! in Ecuador have a point? Who knows? We certainly won’t get any help from our fine media betters, they’re for the lefty and against Far Right Wing Hitler so they’ll just lie. Think I’m lying? Check out the lefty’s name.

The leftist government candidate Lenin Moreno,

Yeah, the whole NY Times newsroom just ejaculated all over tomorrow’s issue.

 

Transparent!

Evidence has emerged the so-called Islamic State is using civilians as human shields in its combat to retain control of Mosul.

Who didn’t know that was coming? I mean, besides our fine media betters. They’re not just lazy, ignorant and biased, they’re pretty dim (Hey Shep!).

 

In Akbar Britain news, transparent!

Londonistan: 423 New Mosques; 500 Closed Churches

Cultural suicide is pretty ugly even though it often has comedic aspects.

The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church.

Utterly transparent, it’s what militant religions always do. That’s why Spaniards built Catholic churches on top of Aztec temples.

 

NJ is pretty damn transparent too.

New Jersey: Outrageous Unconstitutional Intimidation of Private Citizens Who Opposed Mosque

“Being served with a Federal Court Subpoena to turn over all my personal communications including voicemails, social media, emails, notes wherein I make any mention of anything having to do with Islam is an absolute violation of my First Amendment rights. I was a citizen exercising my right to attend public planning board meetings about a land use application that affected my community.”

Lefties are hostile to the whole concept of western civilization. The reason for that is pretty opaque, but I’d bet it has to do with mommy and daddy issues.

 

Speaking of lefty enclaves committing suicide, Illinois is pretty darn transparent.

Moody’s Investors Service warned Illinois politicians on March 30 that the state has reached an “inflection point.” Previously, the credit rating agency’s analysis indicated that Illinois’ economic deterioration is pushing the state toward an economic death spiral.

Any compromise budget – such as the Illinois Senate’s “grand bargain” – that increases the burden on Illinoisans or perpetuates the state’s broken pension system will only hasten the state along the path of Moody’s forewarned downward economic spiral.

We’ve been watching this, Illinois was behind California on this but they’re pulling even.

The only question is which Republican our fine media betters will blame for this.

 

Now that Obama is gone, you know who’s the most transparent?  Minitrue! Some lefties decided to Protest Ivanka Trump at her home.

The second-richest man in the world got a taste of his “Democracy Dies in Darkness” politics last night as hundreds of gay protesters hit the streets near his mansion in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, which is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the world…

As of 9:30 a.m., his newspaper — the Washington Post — had not reported on the event, which had been planned and publicized for weeks…

Sometimes they get bored with lies of commission and get into some omission.

Notice the last part of that sentence, “planned and publicized for weeks.”, which, transparently, led to this.

But she and her family were in New York, visiting her in-laws for the first birthday of her youngest child.

Gee, it was publicized for weeks. I wonder why Ivanka Trump decided to not be home?

 

 

As I said, minitrue is the most transparent. They’re utterly easy to figure out.

Who owns the truth?” was about the Rathergate episode: how we and others exposed 60 Minutes’ attempt to swing the 2004 presidential election to Democrat John Kerry by publishing lies–fake news, one could say–about President George W. Bush’s service in the Texas Air National Guard.

I remember the Time cover collage very well, because I am in it. The photo in the lower left was taken in the loft of my house. That is Scott Johnson sitting with his back to the camera, and my left foot is barely visible next to the chair to his right.

They’ve only gotten worse since then.

The Rathergate thing was awesome to see in real time. Some commenter at Free Republic was on the ball right away then Powerline, BillinDC and Charles Johnson tore into that transparently dishonest ‘memo’. CJ actually had the best deal, this gif that shows the ‘difference’ between a memo made on Microsoft Office in default, memo setting and a memo ostensibly typed on an old typewriter.

 

I learned all sorts of new words like, “Kerning” and “Dan Rather is a fucking liar”.

Well, more the first one than the last few.

 

This is transparent, but of what is sorta opaque.

When it comes to internet trolls, online harassment and fake news, there’s not a lot of light at the end of the online tunnel. And things are probably going to get darker.

Just so you know, they’re not talking about the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. putting out fake news, they’re talking about me.

This is the bit that makes me laugh.

Researchers at the Pew Research Center and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center asked 1,537 scholars and technologists what they think the future of the Internet

Ooooohhhhh, scholars and technologists! Cuz scholars are always right and technologists are the ones to ask about a primarily psychological issue!!!!

Specifically, the survey asked: “In the next decade, will public discourse online become more or less shaped by bad actors, harassment, trolls, and an overall tone of griping, distrust, and disgust?”

Forty-two percent of respondents think the internet will stay about the same over the next 10 years, while 39 percent said they expect discourse to get even more hostile. Only 19 percent predicted any sort of decline in abuse and harassment.

 

Stupid question, stupid study, stupid newspaper article, stupid 19%, unless someone develops a dueling app that actually works abuse and harassment are not going to decline. Ever.

But I clicked and that’s what they wanted so they accomplished what they wanted. Don’t click for transparent linkbaiters!

 

Let’s end on the Transparent Media and Democratic party (BIRM) and how they make and push fake news….lies.

Surprise Headline!

New DNC Chair Tom Perez Has Problems W/ Email, Ethics, Racism and Perjury

He was in the gov’t of Obama, it’s what they did.

toleransical

 

failure-theater

Trump, CPAC and the Waldo Congress.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has put his reputation on the line by telling Sean Hannity that the major parts of the Trump agenda will be accomplished in the first two hundred days: “Inside the two hundred day window is the regulatory reforms we talked about, is the repeal and replace Obamacare; it’s the budget; it’s the rebuilding of our military; it’s tax reform… and infrastructure.” Meanwhile, Congressmen Dave Brat and Mark Meadows tell Sean they see no indication any of this will get done;

Exactly as expected. The We’re Better And Smarter Than You party are not going to give up all that sweet, sweet, corruption money easily.

 

How funny would it be if in 2020 the Dems have the same candidates?

I’ll tell you how funny, Onion-article funny unless Joe Biden and Liawatha also run. By that I mean most of the funny would be in the headline.

 

Okay, this has to be one of the funniest invites in the history of invitations.

In the new issue of Us Weekly, a Dancing With the Stars source reveals producers asked the 69-year-old politician (Hillary V) if she would be interested in strutting her stuff on season 24 of the ABC ballroom competition

Imagine Hillary trying to act human for the entirety of that program. Imagine Hillary attempting to dance. Imagine the gushing reviews the next day, “Hillary glided across the dance floor in a manner reminiscent of Ginger Rogers.”

I absolutely love that the suckophant wrote”strutting her stuff”.

not-at-all-sick

 

Speaking of the suckophantic media, our favorite smell links this with the buried lede.

Six Corporations Control 90% Of US Media, Down From 50 In 1983

That makes easier to spread their fake news across the spectrum.

 

This has to piss off J. Effin Kerry.

Four French friends have launched a campaign aimed at getting former US President Barack Obama to become a candidate in the forthcoming French presidential election.

An online petition has attracted over 40,000 signatures.

Organisers, who hope to garner a million signatures by next month, say the idea reflects their own frustration with the current candidates.

First his adopted country rejects him and then ‘his’ country!!! That’s gotta hurt.

 

wile-e-journolist

I clicked on The Truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! About Trump’s Worrisome War On The Media!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to see how stupid. Surprisingly, only sporadically stupid.

The title should have read, “The truth about the media’s worrisome war on Trump”, which is why I immediately thought ‘Stupid’.

This didn’t help.

In some ways Trump invited such abuse (from our unbiased media V).

Yeah, he went against the Golden Cow!!!!!! That required they start lying about him. It’s just axiomatic, right?

He writes some good stuff like this

Meanwhile, media members who blithely passed along Obama’s serial lies about, among many things, keeping your doctor and health plan under Obamacare, are now on Alpha Alert for Trump untruths, visibly relishing each one.

But fails to mention that many of the Trump’s Untruths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! are not really untrue, just “accurate but mostly false” according to Snopes or “True but deserving of 3 pinocchios” according to the Lying Liars Who Lie at the Wash Post.
Here’s where he goes off the rails.
The Washington media need to stop whining, get off their high horse and do the jobs they chose,
Yeah, see…most of our fine journolistic betters chose to be ‘journalists’ to Change The World!!!!!!!!!, not to provide information.
Earlier, I had an impression that journalism was meant to mirror exactly what is happening in society, giving people a reflection of what they’re doing. This course has made me realize that there are always solutions … and writing about such stories can make journalism a tool for social change.
They don’t give information, they give affirmation, disinformation and misinformation to promote their agenda. Pretending otherwise is just ignorant.

 

Oh shit, the return of Absolute Moral Authority!

The father of a US Navy SEAL killed in a raid in Yemen criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to give the go-ahead and called for an investigation in an interview published Sunday.

I am not looking forward to a rerun of Mother Sheehan.  It’s so depressing watching the media take advantage of someone going through something that traumatic.

 

Really, who’s surprised by this?

Schrap, the victim, and a group of friends gathered at his home on Aug. 27, 2016, to commemorate the death of an Insane Clown Posse fan — or Juggalo — who died last year…

…allowed Schrap to cut her arm with a machete and to drink her blood as part of the ritual. She then volunteered to have her right pinky amputated…

put the woman’s pinky in his freezer and said “he would cook it and eat it later,”

Since she agreed to it, I do not think you can call her a “victim”.

This is really the only surprising part of the article.

The woman told investigators she wasn’t under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the ritual

So…liar or just a really, really, really stupid person?

I know, it’s so hard to tell anymore.

 

I saw this utterly 2016 story about a transgender teen wrestler competing against girls and winning and thought, “That’s fucked up. They shouldn’t let a boy wrestle in a girl’s league (unless it’s the Jello-league), but that wasn’t what was happening.

Debates rose up among coaches, parents, and fans about whether Beggs, who is transitioning from female to male, should be able to compete in the Class 6A 110-pound girls division after undergoing testosterone treatments. UIL rules forbid Beggs from competing against boys.

That’s a hate-crime right? I mean, they’re forcing this poor ‘boy’ to pretend he’s a girl! Basing gender on genitalia is a hate crime!

 

Some people ask me how I do my post so effortlessly, seamlessly and with such good spelling and puntuation so I’ve decided to post a picture of me posting this post. I know, I’m a giver that way.

Now ya’all know what a Veeshir is.
