So she’s been made captain of the Trump-Titanic.

I have to wonder what her motivation is. Did Reince ask her to do the party a solid and make sure Trump doesn’t lose too badly to mitigate down-ballot losses?

Or is she serious in thinking he can win?

Or is she just in it for the money? I have to think the money thing is the least likely factor. Going forward, who is going to hire the lady who tried to salvage the Trump campaign?

She never struck me as a rocket surgeon from her media appearances in the past.

 

Trump!

Posted: August 8, 2016 by veeshir in Fun with Elections, PEBKAC

Trump’s economic plan.  Parts of it, like this, look great

Upon taking office, I will issue a temporary moratorium on new agency regulations.

Can he do that? I mean, I know that if he had a (D) after his name, he could do anything he wants, but can he with his (R) do that?

This he can do

I will also immediately cancel all illegal and overreaching executive orders.

If he spent his first 100 days cancelling all of Obama’s imperial orders, including the ones he did by memo like all the Obamacare waivers, that would make anything else he does palatable.

As a matter of fact, he should reverse all Obama’s waivers. Everybody who got a waiver (including Congress) gets Obamacare shoved down their cloaca, while all the rest of us get Obamacare waivers.

For Justice!

This is hilarious.

Next, I will ask each and every federal agency to prepare a list of all of the regulations they impose on Americans which are not necessary, do not improve public safety, and which needlessly kill jobs. Those regulations will be eliminated.

Yeah, I’m sure we can count on bureaucrats figuring out ways to reduce their power.

He has a bunch of stuff about China and I realize I’m in a distinct minority here, but I would be happy if we put a 500% tariff on all Chinese slave-made goods. We have robots that can make goods almost as cheaply as their slaves and they would be less likely to kill people and pets. (until they became self-aware and killed us all of course)

He mentioned that we have a 33% federal tax on businesses that is increased when adding in state and local taxes so

Under my plan, no American company will pay more than 15% of their business income in taxes.

 

Still too high. I think the corporate tax should be 0%.

All corporate taxes are paid by the consumer who buys their goods and/or services, so it’s not a way to make “Corporations Pay Their Fair Share!!!!!!”, it’s a way to convince envious/ignorant people to pay more in taxes while still getting props for Soaking It To The Rich!!!!!!!!!!

 

The problem I have with this is that, as with anything Trump, who the hell knows what he’s going to do?

I do know what Hillary! will do, pay off Dem groups and billionaires who give her money while taking my freedom, so there’s no reason to prefer her over Trump, but that’s like saying I’d rather be shot by an unknown gun than a .50 BMG.

Playing the percentages that’s a good deal, but what if the unknown gun is a .577 T-Rex?

 

I’m really sick of voting for shit to find out what’s in it.

We keep finding shit.

 

As an aside, I’m not sure how I feel about Trump specifically not endorsing Paul Ryan.

His not endorsing McCain has my full support. That asshole needs to retire or move to NJ where they expect their Republicans to act like that. (and he should take Jeff Flake with him).

I mean, I agree with that, and while Ryan did endorse Trump, Trump is running against the establishment assholes led by Paul Ryan.

Trump’s allure is that he’s fighting the establishment. Hell, if Trump endorses Ryan he might as well endorse Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Harry, I’m the biggest dirtbag in the dirtbag-dominated Senate, Reid.

If Trump doesn’t win, he could still do America some good by destroying the current GOP, so we might have that going for us.

Case in point. “Republican Meg Whitman endorses Hillary!”

The headline, if I had written it, would have been, “Establishment Prick Bashes Trump, Endorses Hillary!.”

So why did she endorse Hillary! other than her establishment prickishness?

 

Can you say, “Quid pro quo”? How about, “You scratch my back by supporting me by endorsing me and giving me a few $million, I’ll make sure the federal gov’t gives you a few $billion of our next stimulizing.”

Now, most of the endorsement is the normal idiocy, but this idiocy goes above and beyond the call of stupidity.

Whitman went on to praise Clinton for her “temperament” and “global experience” that she said would make the former Secretary of State a “far better choice” for President.

“In a tumultuous world, America needs the kind of stable and aspirational leadership Secretary Clinton can provide.

Really?

Temperament?

hillary's temperament

Global experience? Do you mean when her servers were hacked by global enemies of the US or when she asked who had painted Our Lady of Guadalupe or the destruction of what little stability the Muslim world had? I mean, all of those are “experience”, but Hillary! has not shown any hint that she learned anything from her time as Sec State.

Hillary! knows far too much to ever learn everything.

Aspirational? Are we still talking about Hillary!? She is all about getting power and money for her, what the hell is aspirational about that?

Stable? Well, sometimes people keep cows in stables, I assume the Golden Cow’s stable would be gilded, so I’ll give them that one.

 

In We Think You’re An Idiot news, Congress is having Hearings!!!!!!!! Over what?

Who cares. Jebus, I’m sick of fish, my squeezy bulb is worn out and my fins hurt.

 

Can you say ‘Backdoor‘?

The Obama administration is weighing new steps to bolster the security of the United States’ voting process against cyberthreats, including whether to designate the electronic ballot-casting system for November’s elections as “critical infrastructure,” Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security, said on Wednesday.

I thought that you could.

I’d talk about foxes and henhouses, but really, a Chicago-maching pol having his peeps strengthen voting security is far beyond that.

It’s like having Congress protect my freedom.

We do, of course, know why they’re going after ‘hackers’.

minitrue

 

 

Recall when Planned Parenthood was all against dehumanizing people or you could kill them, well

ironicaler

You can’t get much more irony than that, heck, this doesn’t show more irony than those two tweets.

irony-man

Then watch the speech.

Important, Above The Fold, Pushing Your Preferred Narrative, Update!!!!!!

Shep is surely pushing that it’s a right-winger, even having some lefty friend of his talking about how the guy looks like a neo-nazi while CNN has a witness claiming at least one was yelling “Allahu akbar” and targeting children.

 

I didn’t watch Trump’s speech last night, but in my defense, I haven’t watched any political speeches (except a Trump one last week) since 2001, but I’m gonna bet most of these fools didn’t either, they might have read the transcript, but they didn’t need to actually see the speech to demagogue it.

 

“It was a loud voice, more vengeful than hopeful. More hyperbole than details.” CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose huffed that the address had “little appeal to the better angels.” …

 

This one’s my personal favorite from unashamed Clintonista, George Stephansomethingorother:

 a pretty dark speech, labeled Hillary Clinton the candidate of death, destruction terrorism and weakness and mass lawlessness.

 

Do not make fun of the golden cow, that’s almost as bad as attacking their Teleprompter Jesus.

Oh, and the Journolist Word of the Day was, “Dark”.

 

A Veeshir Veerless Vrediction: Well, not so much a vrediction as a wish. I really hope Hillary! chooses Jeb! as her running mate.

That’s about perfect for everybody. Minitrue gets to write story after story about how disaffected Republicans can vote their conscience, the establishment gets to put us in our place (under their loafers), and we get teh awesome that would be the GOP establishment types telling us we have to vote for Hillary! to save the country.

Not quite as ridiculously destructive as a M’Shell candidacy, but pretty darn close.

And I get to laugh my ass off. This election has not had enough of Teh Funny lately.

 

Nother shooting spree, this time in Germany.

Coupla things, too bad they don’t have gun control there (oh wait, they fucking do) and I really hope the guy’s name wasn’t Mohamed or shouting Allahu Akbar because then we’d never know why he did it.

 

Although, I do have some fears the riots will be short on laughs in Cleveland.

In Cleveland, we have people who are above the law (Dem front groups) following their Teleprompter Jesus’ example and declaring themselves Above The Law!

(the New Black Panthers), has elected not to participate in the formal permitting process for marches, access to downtown parks and speakers’ podiums.

“We remain open to conducting our own (protests),

Who do they think they are? Hillary!?

So why might they not want to deal with the hassle of following the law?

The chairman of the New Black Panther Party has announced plans for an armed protest at the Republican convention next week in Cleveland…

Oh, that should go well.

How well?

Bikers for Trump aren’t going to Cleveland looking to cause trouble but will be on hand to counter thousands of professional leftwing agitators planning to disrupt the Republican nominating convention.

That well.

 

This year, I figure the Dem convention will be the most boring, unless one of their front groups blows up another. Like say…their violent footsoldiers in the New Black Panthers beating up their LGBTQADAFY brigade. (as an aside, 6 months ago it was a hate-crime to call them LGBT, but since all the Dems were saying it during the bathroom brew-haha, it’s apparently not a hate-crime for a while).

But the RNC will be violently unfunny what with all the Dems in the Democrat political/media entertainment complex Othering anybody who supports Trump, the GOP and, of course, demonizing cops so they’re afraid to do their jobs for fear of being persecuted by ideological Dem thugs, like that asshole in Baltimore.

It’s almost required of Dem supporters to get mostly-peacefully violent in Cleveland.

 

Mostly unrelated except for the laugh riot aspect.

 I saw this headline and thought it said something different.

Headline

Dumping Trump Would Be Undemocratic And Counterproductive

I agree, but it would be hilarious and entertaining watching the GOP immolate itself, but that’s not the point.

I first read it as saying

Trump Would Be Undemocratic And Counterproductive

 

And thought, “That’s his allure”.

I mean, we already have undemocratic (notice the conversation on taking my guns as Americans are buying record numbers of guns or the GOP ignoring immigration and Obamacare after being elected to stop them), but what we really need in gov’t is “counterproductive”.

Anybody throwing sand..shit in the gears is okay by me.

I hope Trump does not waste this guy as VP.

If our leaders were interested in winning, they would have to design a strategy to destroy this global enemy. But they don’t see the global war. Instead, they timidly nibble around the edges of the battlefields from Africa to the Middle East, and act as if each fight, whether in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Libya or Afghanistan, can be peacefully resolved by diplomatic effort.

 

That’s SecDef talkin’, not VP, help me win an election, talkin’.  I’m still thining Cthulhu or Cheney is his best choice. He has no need of Chris Christie, he’s already filling the Northeast Loudmouth role and Benito Giuliani as AG makes my toes tingle. Just seeing the OUTRAGE!!!!!! of the NY Times and their aging hippy base over that will be High-Lariously highlarious.

 

I’ll give Trump this, his reaction to the murders in Dallas was impressive.

No politics, just a “We need to work on coming together” statement. Very presidential.

 

Let’s leave the politics of the situation to others.

Another New Black Panther posing in the above photo and kneeling with a shotgun is “Field Marshal” Najee Muhammad. As I wrote in my book InjusticeOne of them was Panther “Field Marshal” Najee Muhammad, who is seen in a Panther video called “Training Day” in which he encourages blacks in DeKalb County, Georgia, to don ski masks, lie in wait behind shrubs, and kill police officers with AK-47s. Following that exhortation he mocks the hypothetical victims’ grieving widows.

Justice Department employees ridiculed the video and noted very few were in the video’s audience, apparently oblivious of the role and power of social media to reach people not sitting in an auditorium….

Bob Price has this piece: Confirmed: Dallas Shooter was Member of Houston New Black Panther Party.  The story has a disturbing video of an armed New Black Panther march in Texas where the armed uniformed panthers chant, “Off the pig” and “Oink, oink, bang, bang.”  They also note “Revolution has come. Time to pick up the gun.”  The piece states:

 

There’s video at the link that basically says, “We’re going to kill police.”, and yet, the Dept of “Justice” is focusing on Tea Party terrorists.

“Homegrown violent extremists can be motivated by any viewpoint on the full spectrum of hate — anti-government views (tea party V), racism, bigotry (tea party V), anarchy (but not the lefty anarchists, them tea party anarchists) and other despicable beliefs (anti-gov’t beliefs),” he said. “When it comes to hate and intolerance, no single ideology governs.”

 

Notice, no mention of religion and you know the racism is whitey hatin’ on the black man…woman….person…community! And what our fine betters are doing their best to hide and obfuscate is that two ideologies seem to have the corner on violence; lefties and Islamic jihadis.

 

Petite Lap FBI Director gets slapped down!

These were not marked,” Clinton said. “They were not marked and in retrospect some have said, ‘well, they should have been,’ but they were not at the time.”

She just called Comey a liar. I wonder, will he just sit there and take it like a good minion?

All signs point to yes!/magic eight ball. He obviously knows his place.

 

This doesn’t have much to do with anything except that it’s a result of Obama’s Smirt Duhplomacy, but that’s not why I’m linking to this story of a battle between backers of one set of jihadis and backers of another set of jihadis on the borders of NATO (Turkey)

Deadly airstrikes have rocked a picturesque town in northern Idlib near the Turkish border, despite a three-day ceasefire announced by the Syrian army on Wednesday….

“Warplanes hit the center of the town, including a crowd of civilians,” activists told the activist Shaam News Network.

The Idlib Civil Defense Force—more commonly known as the White Helmets—condemned the attack, calling it a “horrific massacre” while saying that jets dropped cluster bombs on the town.

 

Cease-fire, distinct from a hudna, does not mean the same thing in the middle east. It’s more of a war-time “Hey, your shoeloaces are untied” sort of thing. Only Israel honors them in that region.

Hudna, of course, is a lull in the war while one or both sides just rest and re-arm for the next battle.

But then, this wasn’t really a cease-fire so far as the Syrians were concerned in the first place.

Friday’s aerial strikes comes after Syria’s army issued a statement that a “ regime of calm will be implemented across all territory of the Syrian Arab Republic for a period of 72 hours from 1 a.m. on July 6 until 2400 on July 8, 2016.”

Yeah, calm down or die is not quite the same as a cease fire.

What has me surprised is that anybody, except for earnest lefties, were surprised by this.

I’d guess it’s the faux outrage best translated as “Hey, he did it before I could!”.

 

Not just because of the……. (what word describes what’s going on in this election?)… but because Minitrue is all upset about Trump’s taxes.

It’s funny how little interest Minitrue shows in all the tax cheating by just about every  Obama nominee.
