Not really, but occasionally some people are still doing it!

Obama concealed strength of al Quaeda in runup to 2012 election!!!!

The Obama administration deliberately sought to downplay how robust the al-Qaida network was in the lead up to the 2012 election by selectively releasing documents that enforced a preferred narrative, The Weekly Standard reports, citing experts at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and New York Times Correspondent Rukmini Callimachi.

I was looking for a quote from Ambassador Stevens but he’s dead. Cuz Obama was downplaying al Quaeda in the runup to the 2012 election.

I also remember saying that Obama was dishonestly downplaying it at the time, I don’t feel like looking but I was writing about that, I seem to recall Ace and the puppy blender doing the same.

As always, being right too soon is one of the greatest crimes there is.

 

Nother thing I remember writing about Trump was that if he only stopped Obama’s policies of stopping economic growth, we’d have a boom toot sweet. Well, this toot is pretty sweet.

Don’t look now, but U.S. growth forecasts are moving higher. That’s helping to support U.S. stocks. Projections for U.S. economic growth from two Federal Reserve banks have risen in recent weeks. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York on Friday forecast that gross domestic product will rise 3.8% in the fourth quarter, up from a […]

I can’t get by the paywall, and don’t feel like using google to do so, but I’d bet a dollar there is nothing in there about Obama retarding growth and Trump undoing that commie bullshit.

I will say that, Unexpectedly!!!!!!!!!, growth will be higher. Under Bush it was always Unexpectedly!!!!!!! higher than forecasts and under Obama it was always Unexpectedly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lower.

Rule of thumb, everybody’s lying anymore, you just have to figure out who they hate to figure out which way they’re lying.

 

For instance, the other day I heard a news fool on the radio the other day say, “Trump went to China and said he was focusing on trade but made few trade deals.”
I thought, “Few huh? So what are you assholes ignoring?”

China and the United States have signed additional business agreements valued at $250bn during President Donald Trump’s visit to Beijing, though some were less than binding commercial contracts.

The agreements signed at a ceremony attended by Mr Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, included sales of US-made chipsets, jet engines and auto parts.

It’s easy to figure out, you just have to assume they hate Trump and yet want to pretend they’re covering stories they’re covering up.

 

If we’re very good maybe this will happen.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of Likely Democratic Voters think Biden would make the best candidate against President Trump if he runs for reelection in 2020

2020 is going to be nearly as funny as 2008. What with the GOP trying to unseat a GOP POTUS popular with GOP voters and the Dems busy with their, “No! I”m more stupider!!!!!” primary.

We’ll have the hilarity of the media continue their lying and fakenewsing about what Trump says while  hiding what Dem presidential candidates are saying, Biden and Warren say some epically stupid things after all. And of course all the people who hate Trump will have to pretend Joe Biden can chew gum and breathe at the same time.

Add in that Hillary looking for her ! and getting the cold shoulder will make it even fucking funnier. The best part? There was nobody in 2008 I thought should be POTUS, but Trump is far less bad than I thought he would be so I’m actually looking forward to the hilarity.

 

Sticking with our second favorite Weasels, I was a little confused about why they were upset about this.

Headline.

Linda Sarsour Set To Be On Anti-Semitism Panel

My first thought was, “Who else are they gonna get to lead a panel on how to anti-semitis?” But then I read this

A private university in New York City is hosting a panel on combating anti-Semitism

Huh, combating anti-semitism is whole different kettle of Jew Hate.

Definitional problems abound with our fine elitist betters.

 

While I’d say that it’s a little early to be talking about Hezbollah’s fall and I’m pretty sure ISIS did most of the (chopping off) legwork on that, this is spot on.

The press ignored the acknowledgement that Arabs and Jews are working together to battle Islamic terrorism. (some Islamic terrorism actually V)

Yup. Whodathunk that helping the enemies of the house of Saud get nukes would get them to play nice with Israel?

You know, except people who were paying attention to the fact that the Sunni-Shia war was heating up and Sunnis are more afraid of nuclear-armed Shia than they hate Jews.

As they say, when jihadi-funders know they are to be nuked in a year or two, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.

 

News from the 2016 election.

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

Listen honey, we got Trump because we’re already pretty enraged. Ignoring that shit is how we get more Trump.

And if this shit keeps going? Well, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near an IRS bureacratic better. You know, unless I had my Fisher-Price tar and feathers kit handy.

 

I’m fer this.

The college’s advice to police comes during a student-led petition to ban New York police from campus, according to the New York Post.

Stop patrolling the campus altogether! Blue Lives Don’t Matter!!!!!!!!!1

They don’t want cops? See what happens when there are no police to keep away the people who like it when there are no cops in a Gun-Free Zone!!!!!!!, I mostly just want to see the “Cops come back!!!!!!!!!!!” protests.

That’ll be funny. The mass murders will suck, but I don’t go there. Anybody who sends their kids to any Elite College is an idiot. Stupidity should be painful.

 

We really need to work out an immigration plan to keep Californians out of America.

Those cited for these violations fix the problems and pay the fines, a typical code enforcement story. The kicker comes a few weeks or months later when citizens get a bill in the mail for thousands of dollars from the law firm that prosecuted them. They are forcing citizens to pay for the private lawyers used to take them to court in the first place. So a fine for a couple of hundred dollars suddenly becomes a bill for $3,000 or $20,000 or even more.

In Coachella, a man was fined $900 for expanding his living room without getting a permit. He paid his fine. Then more than a year later he got a bill in the mail from Silver & Wright for $26,000. They told him that he had to pay the cost of prosecuting him, and if he didn’t, they could put a lien on his house and the city could sell it against his will. When he appealed the bill they charged him even more for the cost of defending against the appeal. The bill went from $26,000 to $31,000.

When private industry bribes pols to take over civic duties, they can get away with a lot of shit. See also, the fuckheads in VA selling roads (HOV lanes on 95 and 66) paid for by tax money to private companies so they can charge tolls. We saw a few years ago how they were fining people $thousands for the crime of their EZ Pass thing not working.

The worst part is that CA voters are going to go to neighboring states and vote for the same assholes who do shit like that. See also, New Hampshire filling up with Massholes.

Now I want a wall built between CA and the US as well. Let ’em go north, those fools in Oregon and Washington like that shit.

 

All I can is, the names I’ve been called for noting this.

A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive — and, as a result, today’s global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere.

As with rain forests, where there’s lots of water, there’s lot of life. Not just plants but critters from microscopic to large, they all breathe. Also, in the rain forests there’s lots of death, decay is very carbon-emitting.

As for the bit about “climate models may be misjudging”, ummmmm, I asked the ice-free North Pole and Santa said, “No shit.” That’s the whole purpose of ‘climate models” If they didn’t lie, tglobal warmmongers have to admit that global worming is a religious scam.

 

Well, that’s my tube. I’m actually surprised I found that much shit without linking shit about sexual predators.

Awefuckingsome.

So we’ve been watching this shit for years, decades in some instance, and yet, our fine betters are still trying to pretend we’re not seeing what we’re seeing.

I hate to have to admit this, but I have to start with a Mea Wronga.

For a few years now I’ve been saying we should fire everybody at the Dept of “Justice” and replace them with Free Republic commenters, but I wuz wrong.

We should fire them all and replace them with the fine folks at Judicial Watch. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying anything against Freepers, I’m just saying that JW is busy doing the job “Justice” is trying to stop.

The Dept of “Justice” is trying to hide evidence of high crimes and possible treason as Judicial Watch is trying to expose it.

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (sic) for all records of communications relating to Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya’s immigration parole. (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (sic)(No. 1:17-cv-02357)).

Judicial Watch filed suit after the Justice(sic) Department failed to respond to an August 4, 2017, FOIA request seeking…

The ‘Russian lawyer’ who finagled a meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. evidently wasn’t supposed to be in the country,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We want to know what the Obama Justice (sic) Department knew and when it knew about what Ms. Veselniskava was up to.”

We know what she was up to, helping Obama’s “Justice” Dept try to fix an election by setting up bullshit charges against erstwhile Grannarch Hillary’s opponent.

I’ve come to realize we need to fire everybody in the IRS and replace them with Freepers, after JW gets done putting most of them in jail.

Emails uncovered by Judicial Watch show David L. Fish, IRS acting director of Exempt Organizations Rulings and Agreements, informing Holly Paz that another IRS employee, Joe Urban, had begun a “secret research project” with the donor lists that were improperly obtained by the IRS.

Chicago-Machine Politics writ large needs to be prosecuted and stopped, our fine betters at the Dept of “Justice” are uninterested in the rule of law, they want rule by corrupt assholes.

Of course, JW would need to hire some Freepers to do the legwork on a whole bunch of crimes done by all facets of Obama’s gov’t assholes, from Fast and Furious to…I don’t even want to remember all the lawless shit they were doing.

We need a rule of law, not Rule By Corrupt Lawyers and Bureaucrats.

 

So what are the members of our corrupt ruling class doing to get to the bottom of this shit? 

DNC Unveils Clinton Institute For Campaign Ethics Reform In Response To Corruption Allegations

That’s The Onion you say?  The Onion obviously has a time machine, their headlines are usually anywhere from a few days to a few years early, so we have that to look forward to.

Although…I could see them calling it the Obama Institute for Campaign Ethics Reform.

 

Let’s look at the Iranian/Saudi war that’s been raging across the Middle East for the last….. what? 8-12 centuries? Sure, it gets “Hot” and “Cold”, but the last few years, with Obama choosing the Iranians’ side, it got very “Hot” in Syria. But that war is about over, not sure who won, it appears to be Iran as ISIS is aligned with the Saudis.

So it’s moved to the Arabian peninsula. File this under, “Yeah, we already figured that out but it’s nice to have official confirmation.”

 Iran manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Shiite rebels toward the Saudi capital and remnants of it bore “Iranian markings,” the top U.S. Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday, backing the kingdom’s earlier allegations.

Leading to some hilarity. Apparently, the Little Satan isn’t thrilled with Iran winning so they’re putting their thumbs on the scale.

The foreign minister of Saudi Arabia has refused to quell rumors that his country is working with Israel to tackle the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah.

Abel Al-Jubeir said Thursday that Hezbollah, a political and militant Shia-Islamist group, has hijacked the system in Lebanon and is spreading a malign influence throughout the Middle East.

 

Sure, Saudi Arabia helps fund Palestinian jihadis, but with Iran cementing their hold on Syria and Lebanaon, Israel would like them to fight their real enemies, the people who believe in almost the same religion; the Saudis.

With Obama helping the Iranians get nukes, this is utterly unsurprising.

He said many countries want to push back against Hezbollah but would not be drawn either way on whether Saudi Arabia was now working with Israel.

That’s huge, but not really unexpected. Israel ain’t gonna nuke the Arabian peninsula because they help the Palestinian Terrortories, Iran would probably nuke the Saudis before they tried to nuke Israel because that’s what Allah wants.

 

Of course, so far as we’re concerned, we want Iran and the Saudis to focus on each other. Why?

That’s why.

 

One thing I never get, why do people take anything China does at face value?

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested three prominent African-American athletes.  It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home.  A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of the presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following.  They all have headshots from UCLA:

At least they don’t have head-shots from the People’s Army.

Yet.

China does not want to be friends with America, they want to use our economy to bolster their Potemkin Economy so they can afford shit like a navy, so they can threaten more places than where they can walk.

 

Fucking Africa, the people on that continent are fucked, their rulers don’t want them educated, they want them superstitious and fearful. People are easier to dominate that way.

That gives us shit like this.

 

RELATIVES dancing with the corpses of their loved ones are helping to spread the plague, officials have warned.

Madagascans have been told to stop the traditional practice of Famadihana, which sees locals dig up deceased relatives and dance with them before they are reburied, The Sun reports.

 

In the Congo they eat pygmies for some fucking reason, in some places they screw virgins to cure AIDS, they’re just fucked.

 

Let’s go to America, it’s not really funny, but it’s less murderous.

Yesterday and today mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht.

Kristallnacht also known as Night of Broken Glass was an anti-Jewish pogrom in Nazi Germany on November 9th-10th 1938.

“That’s not America!!!!!” you say, well, Tuesday we had a little Kristolnacht.

The small but vocal contingent of “NeverTrump” Republicans — those who swore never to vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election, even if that meant handing the country to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats — were exuberant Tuesday night, as Republican gubernatorial candidates went down to defeat in New Jersey and Virginia…

The Weekly Standard section of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party/Never Trumpers are happy. Even though, apparently, Gillespie was a member in good standing of that party.

Yeah. The end of the beginning of putting us in our place.

Of course, it’s not even the end of the beginning, it’s just another step in the more than a decade-long process they’ve been trying since Bush was POTUS.

 

This is something I’m not surprised our fine media betters and our betters in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party have ignored, but why has the dextrosphere mostly ignored it as well?

Brazile, according to Newsweek, in a piece titled “DNC’S Donna Brazile Dedicated Her Book To ‘Patriot’ Seth Rich, Whose Death Made Her Fear For Own Life”,  dedicated her book in part to Rich…

, as the Post reported earlier in the weekend. She wrote that Rich’s murder haunted her and that she’d installed surveillance cameras at her home and would keep the blinds in her office window closed so she could not be seen by snipers,

When I saw that I figured I’d see a bunch of shit about it, but no, just this and some articles the day she said it. Why should she be worried about “bungling muggers” having sniper rifles? Maybe she doesn’t think his murder was a “bungled” mugging!?!?!?!?!

Weird. When I say that it’s suspicious, it’s a Conspiracy Theory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, when Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC and Hillary’s enabler, says it, it’s Not News!!!!!!!

 

Speaking of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party, they’re still butthurt about Roy Moore winning the primary, so there’s no pushback on this.

When the story broke an hour ago that Roy Moore was being accused by multiple women of inappropriate sexual behavior when they were underage teens, I thought, “uh oh.” Then, I saw the source: Washington Post. A short wave of relief came over me before the real dread of our current situation took hold.

I don’t trust the Washington Post. They are among the worst journalistic predators in the country in that they claim to be the beacon of truth while constantly spinning facts to match their liberally approved narratives

He’s been in the public eye for a long time, what with some fairly ‘controversial’ rulings as judge, so why is this coming out now? You don’t need the Harvey Weinstein shit to legitimize tenuously evidenced sexual misconduct claims against a conservative, that’s just standard operating procedure.

Add in that the Wash Post has been at the forefront of Fake News about Trump and, well, this smells like week-old Obama lies.

Hell, it smells like year-old Clinton lies. And those really smell.

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (actual results usually vary) has okayed:

The environmental agency announced in a press release on Tuesday that the company has been approved to let “ZAP male” mosquitoes into the ecosystem to mate with the standard Asian Tiger female mosquito that terrorizes humans in the summer.

Male mosquitoes don’t bite, so when these specially grown ZAP insects, infected with the bacteria Wolbachia pipientis, mate with wild female mosquitoes, the resulting eggs won’t hatch. This will reduce the amount of biting, disease-carrying lady mosquitoes.

I can’t see any problems stemming from this!

Did I say that with a straight face? I’m out of practice so I’ve been practicing again is why I ask.

 

I didn’t pay much attention to this, but the story of the two women and dogs who survived after 6 months adrift in the Pacific smelled as much as a Wash Post ‘scoop’ to me. This guy has the knowledge and boredness to actually look into their claims.

19 REASONS THIS “SURVIVAL” STORY SMELLS FISHY

If I had seen this bit about sharks I would have called bullshit immediately, I find it hard to believe that even today’s journalists are stupid enough to buy it.

“I’m telling you I’ve never seen any Stanley Cup winner come even close to the precision these five sharks had. Three would get on one side and two would get on the other side, and they would make waves and try to knock down the boat.”

“I told [the dogs] not to bark because the sharks could hear us breathing. They could smell us”

Although… I shouldn’t be surprised. Our fine media betters learned all their history from movies, and since SyFy movies made their leftward lurch that must have become their Science/Discovery Channel, what they watch instead of Shark Week. Still, the lack of fully filled bikinis should have clued them it was Fake News.

They’re apparently even more stupid than even I expected. And that’s saying something.

He does some speculating, that seem pretty rock-solid to me.

They’re expecting publicity (mission accomplished) and maybe a book deal. Maybe a TV special. Maybe an episode of “I Shouldn’t Be Alive.” Hell, maybe a movie. They’re attention whores.

Yup.

 

I have to admit, I’m torn on this one.

Hackers from the UK-based security firm Pen Test Partners have found that it’s trivially easy to hack into a Svakom Siime Eye, a $249 Internet of Things dildo that has a small camera on its tip, allowing users to stream a video to anyone of their choosing over the internet. However, if you’re in Wi-Fi range of the dildo and can guess the password, which by default is “88888888,” you can watch the video stream. With a bit more hacking, you can take control of the firmware and then connect to it remotely as well.

As noted at the link, these things don’t always go into the vagina, just saying. So if they end up looking up someone’s ass, isn’t actually accomplishing that goal punishment enough?

 

200 Quatloos on Riki Tikki Tavi!

A  Scottish pro golfer captured video of a cobra battling a mongoose for its life on a South African course during the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge.

Fuck Nagaina.

 

What I can’t figure out is how people can worship Hillary Clinton with a religious fervor.

My opinion of her disciples.

Their opinion of  the matter.

Hillary Clinton’s pastoral adviser urged her to keep her head up following her unexpected Election Day loss in November and compared the election to Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified.

“It is Friday, but Sunday is coming … This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays,” wrote United Methodist City Society Executive Director the Rev. Bill Shillady in an email to Clinton obtained by CNN. “Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. We all have Fridays. But, as the saying goes, ‘Sunday’s coming!'”

I could understand following her because your face is in the trough, but that religious fervor is flabberastical.

 

Let’s flashback to News We Didn’t Need To Know Under Obama But That Is Now Noticing Years After It Would Have Been Useful!!!!!

Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013.  The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

That’s my problem with Foxnews, they had to know about this back then, why didn’t Bill O’Reilly or their news folks report this? One O’Reilly opening rant on this could have accomplished something, but they all ignored it. You can’t say, “The Obama admin tried to blah blah  fucking blah blah.”

Why?

During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.

Our fine media betters knew it. Our fine Congressional betters knew. None of them did shit about it. Of course, Obama did use federal agencies to enforce his will as to what he wanted to be reported, but still…

 

I’m sorta flabbergasted but mostly just laughing my ass off.  A Stephen Green at the Puppy Blender’s post in its entirety.

NOT GETTING IT DEP’TMattis claims North Korea diplomacy is working, but Trump intensifies threats.

Has CNN never heard of good cop/bad cop?

So James, Mad-Dog, Have-A-Plan-To-Kill-Everybody-You-Meet, Mattis is playing the good cop.

C’mon, that’s fucking hilarious. Our poofy-haired maniac is fucking with the Norks.

I know I’m often am the only one who laughs at my jokes but you have to admit that’s fucking funny. I cannot express how absolutely hilarious I find it.

Of course, I haven’t clicked the CNN article, but I would bet a whole lot the article doesn’t match the headline, CNN lies a lot you know. But that’s another Stephen Green post entirely.

 

The can has been kicked about as far as it can go before the fucking Norks rhetoric backs them into a corner and they start lobbing missiles at Guam, Japan or Hawaii. Or even open ocean. They’re going to have to up the provocation. As we all know, the sequel has to be more ‘splodey than the original. We’re at the part in the movie franchise where they get preachy and try to save the whales or get really, really ‘splody and nuke the whales. I’m betting on the nuke thing.

 

Of course, the WSJ also knows which poofy-haired maniac is the cause of all the problems.

China sees a war of words between the U.S. and North Korea as frustrating its efforts to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula, leaving it with few palatable options.

Notice the tone of that makes the murderous commie dictators in China the reasonable ones. Trump and the insanely-murderous Nork, commie dictator are the unruly ones.

What they refuse to see is that the murderous commie dictators in China like it when the world backs down from the maniac running the North Korean gulag so of course they’re going to act that way.

Here’s my favorite part.

A U.S. Navy destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of one of China’s artificial islands in the South China Sea on Thursday, the Reuters news agency reported, in the latest American challenge to Chinese territorial claims

The islands the murderous, expansionist, commie dictators in China built in order to lay claim to international waters. The WSJ here is taking the side of murderous , expansionist, commie dictators in China against the rest of the world.

Second favorite part

Mr. Zhao, the nuclear policy specialist, said a consensus among Chinese officials and experts is that more pressure should be exerted on the U.S. to persuade it to talk directly with North Korea. Beijing remains hopeful that Washington will relax its conditions for negotiations with Pyongyang, as it has appeared to do in recent months, he said.

Because negotiations with the Norks have worked so well in the past. Just ask the totally reasonable, murderous, expansionist, commie dictators in China!!!!!

Jackass.

Speaking of jackasses:

Not getting reality! Why The GOP Didn’t Repeal And Replace!!! It could have been 11 words, “Because they like the power it gives them over our lives.” but it’s long and full of idiocy.

This flirts with sanity, but it’s sort of a throw away paragraph, notice it starts with blaming Trump

Trump’s inexperience is a factor here. But the outsider president’s expectations were set in large part by seven years of Republican promises to repeal and replace the health care law. And throughout that time, Republicans were never really serious about developing a replacement plan that could pass.

Notice he writes “replacement plan.” Isn’t Reason a libertarian site? Shouldn’t he be writing, “were really serious about getting rid of it.”?

Back in 2013, when Obamacare’s exchanges went online, and immediately crashed, it was clear that many Republicans were simply not interested in productive health policy improvements. Instead, they viewed the struggles of the health care law strictly as a political cudgel to wield against political opponents.

Now, while I agree with that last statement, WTF is a fucking writer from Reason doing writing “Republicans were not interested in productive health policy improvements”? No, really. WTFF? Why is a Reason writer upset the GOP didn’t help the gov’t take over healthcare or have their own plan for  the gov’t to take over healthcare? WTFF?

These efforts take significant time and energy. Democrats and their allies on the left spent nearly two decades working through ideas and building broad consensus after the failure of President Bill Clinton’s health care plan in the early 1990s

WTFF? Is this guy really that stupid? Has Reason really sunk that low?

Broad fucking consensus? They purged their party of Blue Dogs, bribed and threatened most of the rest and rammed it through using a Congressional trick with only Dems voting for it. How the fuck is that a “Broad Consensus”? I mean, how the fuck can a writer at a supposedly libertarian site even think that much less write it?

This is where Trump’s experience comes into play. Trump, an outsider with no history with the Republican politics, was not in on the plot. He did not know that it was, essentially, a ruse.

Oh, I’d say he knew that, but he was trying to get them to do what they didn’t want to do but that he wanted done. I’d say he’s not as stupid as this writer. I mean, if I could figure it out from my crappy apt in AJ, I’m pretty sure Trump could figure it out from his much better view of our Ruling Elite!!!!.

But Trump, a neophyte who has demonstrated no in-depth understanding of health care policy or the political dynamics that surround, and who did not bother to educate himself on those issues, could not and did not play this role.

Another idiot who thinks he knows better than Trump how to negotiate and get shit done. He’s not a neophyte, he’s been bribing politicians for decades, I’m pretty sure he knows how to get shit done in DC far better than this lefty writer at Reason.

It didn’t help that Trump’s victory caught congressional Republicans by surprise

Hardee har har har. It did catch a lot of people by surprise, I won’t deny that, but what’s important is that here’s where a Reason writer defends pols who were totally sure they could not keep the promises they so solemnly made to get elected for at least 6 years.

I would expect a Reason writer to gleefully point that out, but in a “See! I told you they were lying assholes!!!!” way, not as a fucking defense. WTFF?

The failure, then, was party wide. Republicans in Congress weren’t prepared to repeal and replace Obamacare, and may never have intended to.

May never have? In the last week or two we have seen two previous, GOP House majority leaders admit they never meant to do it. May never have? WTFF?

And now Trump is merely continuing the cycle of dysfunction, using the failure of the GOP health care effort to stoke tensions within his own party that are politically convenient for him, but unlikely to advance any policy goals.

Trump is continuing the cycle of dysfunction? Trump is smashing the cycle of dysfunction. Trump Smash! That’s his job now that the GOP won’t do what they’re supposed to do.

And he is accomplishing something else I didn’t realize I’d see, masks are off, battle lines are drawn. All manner of things are becoming clear to even the most obtuse and non-paying-attention. I mean, not Shepard Smith, but you know, intelligent people.

In conclusion, WTF happened to Reason? That has all the in-depth, impartial analysis you’d expect from an Atlantic, Newsweek or Media Matters article, not Reason.

 

Coup Coup

Kristolnacht keeps getting delayed.

Kristol followed up the NYT article with a gem of an idea that conservatives should rebrand themselves as liberals: “Seriously. We’re for liberal democracy, liberal world order, liberal economy, liberal education.”

Okay, that’s funny. That’s what lefties do, keep rebranding things to try to make them more palatable instead of actually working to fix what makes them unpalatable in the first place.

I do applaud the effort, he can call his new party the “We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party”, that’s its raison d’etre.

But in perhaps Kristol’s shadiest move, he is trying to pin the NYT article on Pence although it is highly likely the story idea came from Kristol himself. The two reporters, Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns, wrote a very similar piece in March 2016 about efforts to derail Trump; Kristol was cited then as having “circulated a memo to a small number of conservative allies detailing the process by which an independent candidate could get on general-election ballots across the country.” The week before the article was published, Burns sub-tweeted Kristol and said “Today is the Super Bowl of Bill Kristol Twitter.” Kristol also helped promote Burns’ book last year about a dysfunctional Trump campaign.

Here’s the punchline

I wonder why he doesn’t run for office? Sure, he’d start slow but at the end, after the voting, I figure he could make a serious putsch!

 

Troops Sent To American Border!!!!!!!!!!! Trump is sending killer myrmidons to kill undocu….ummmmmmm what?

SAINT-BERNARD-DE-LACOLLE, QUEBEC The Latest on the increasing flow of migrants over the U.S.-Canadian border at a remote spot in northern New York and southern Quebec (all times local):

1:40 p.m.

Canada has sent about 100 soldiers to a remote spot on the Quebec-New York border where asylum seekers are crossing illegally.

It’s the utter hypocrisy of our fine media betters that pisses me off the most.

If 23 Canadians got together in Ottawa to protest Trump, CNN would be there, but we read about this in the Miami Herald.

 

The Wash Post, purveyors of fake news via anonymous sources, innuendo, selective reportage and outright lies, let’s some reality in.

But lately, as Democratic leadership has increasingly embraced the far-left impulses of its base, I’ve become convinced that the left needs to think harder about the unintended consequences of such benevolent-seeming proposals.

In isolation, each of these policies has the potential to make workers more costly to hire. Cumulatively, they almost certainly do…

Take the proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, a policy endorsed in the Democratic Party’s new “Better Deal” platform.

An increase in the federal minimum wage, stuck at $7.25 for eight years, is long overdue. But more than doubling it would likely result in massive job losses and cuts in work hours….

It burnssssssss!

You can hear the grinding teeth in the background of this part

As strange as it feels to say something nice about policies being pursued by the Trump administration, this might be a better approach.

So what happens when reality invades the Wash Post? Comments!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right out of the blocks we have what could be a winner in the utterly non-introspective comment category or could be someone noticing reality

3rd comment

She gets paid to write. Her paycheck is based on the value she creates, in writing columns that people read and appreciate, contributing to subscription and advertising revenues. Her pay is market based, which is the only legitimate way to determine wages.

On many websites I’d think it was someone noticing reality, but I’ve seen too much absolute idiocy in the comments at the Wash Post to be more than 25% sure it’s an intelligent comment. I would bet that comment is meant to defend how much she’s paid while not realizing it could mean minimum wage earners. Which, as we all know, the real minimum wage is 0, which a lot of them are about to make.

There were 1200 comments when I clicked, I only read the first 30 or so, not much hate just a lot of Erudite People discussing this Dispassionately, like the guy with Phd in his name who claimed that there was no economic data to prove that $15/hour minimum wage hurt the economy, I’m sure they get much angrier by about 50 and downright scary long before 500.

 

via Babalu, we see that, apparently, they aren’t doing communism right in Venezuela.

Airlines are continuing to pull out of Venezuela, and this time it’s not just about trapped cash but a whole series of grievances including staff held up at gunpoint, luggage theft, poor runway maintenance and low quality jet fuel.

I blame Trump. And the alt-right!

I just wish all these right wingers would stop sabotaging every commie paradise!

 

More substance added to Trump’s Usubstantiated!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Claims about illegal voting.

A James Madison University student was sentenced to prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to registering dead voters for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.

You have to admit that having a student at James Madison gives it that extra kick we expect.

Right in the balls.

 

Eddie Murphy did it first.

He didn’t do it funnier though.

Looking at the news we see a lot that we all saw and knew that is becoming too obvious to ignore and other stuff we saw and thought we knew but were wrong.

Of course, the ‘wrong’ category was usually that we weren’t paranoid enough.

 

This one really makes me feel stupid, maybe federalism really is all about slavery?!?!?!?!

California’s top labor law enforcer wants federal immigration agents to stay away from offices where state investigators weigh claims about underpaid employees and workplace retaliation.

Not technically slavery, but importing low-wage workers from areas with a fairly uniform population is about the same, this time it’s Hispanics instead of blacks, and they make them pay for their own crappy houses and cheap food, but the result is the same. A class of similar looking workers who do what they’re told.

Her directive followed three instances over the past 10 months in which immigration agents sought information about California workers who had filed claims against employers. In two cases, immigration agents attempted to attend hearings where investigators discuss claims with workers and their employers, Su said. In all three cases, the agents left when they were asked, she said.

They screw them cuz they’re illegal and can’t resort to the law against a politically powerful boss (one that gives donations to CA pols). They can’t whip them but this ridiculous century is young and the forces of Tolerance and Mostly Peace can justify a lot of evil in the name of Tolerance and Fairness.

 

I don’t know if this counts as being wrong, it is very cool though. I’ve been harping on the “Low Unemployment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with 100,000,000 who’ve given even looking for work that aren’t counted But now we see this.

 few hours later, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the economy added 209,000 jobs in July; the number of employed people jumped by 345,000 to 153,513,000 in July, setting a third straight monthly record; the number of Americans counted as not in the labor force, meaning they don’t have a job and are not looking for one, dropped for a third straight month to 94,657,000; and the nation’s unemployment rate also dropped a tenth of a point, to 4.3 percent.

That’s Winning!, are sick of it yet? I know someone who is.

Drop in Unemployment Rate: All About the Rounding

“The unemployment rate to three decimals was virtually unchanged at 4.350% versus 4.357% last month, but after rounding fell by one-tenth to 4.3%”

We’ll file that under Stuff That Is Only Written When A Republican (Or Trump) Is POTUS. But then, we all know that shit is just business as usual for our fine media betters.

 

China likes what the Norks are doing, they are even directing it IMO. How else can the Norks get such impressive hackers? They also seem to keep on keeping on even though there are SANCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

A North Korea defector has revealed how the dictatorship manages to bypass international sanctions and fund it’s nuclear weapons programme.

Ri Jong Ho, 59, had been raising money for the regime for decades, but defected in 2014 and now lives in Virginia, U.S.

He says UN sanctions against North Korea is futile as Pyongyang has long been able to work their way around attempts to cut off trade…

A major part of his job was helping to ferry ‘between $50 million and $100 million’ from China to North Korea, he told CNN…

Another thing it shows, that we all knew when we were trying it on Saddam’s Iraq,  sanctions don’t hurt murderous dictators, they screw Teh Peepul*

However, he added, the general population never benefit from these money transfers, as the money is used to fund the lavish lives of Kim, his family and the Pyongyang elite.

The other thing that shows that I say I know but others dispute is that there is no such thing as International Law. Chinese companies are owned by the State, pretending they’re like companies in free nations is ridiculous, they do what the gov’t wants.

He said that when a North Korean company is banned from trading with China, the government simply changes the name of the company and the relationship is resumed – and the Chinese companies are only interested in profits.

There can be no law without a credible enforcement mechanism. The ICC in the Hague is about useless. They found against China in the South China Sea a year ago and it changed…not a fucking thing except for people who pretend Internation Law is a thing to say, “See! The system works!!!!”, except it didn’t. If you can’t force murderous dictators to follow International Law, it’s not real law.

 

*I would not class Cuba’s sanctions in that as other countries can sell to Cuba, that’s an American only sanction.

 

 

Ace writes about Sessions going after leakers and sez

The problem is: So many executive employees are leaking that any investigation will undoubtedly turn up friends of the investigators. And the investigators themselves may be leakers.

(Does anyone think the leaker James Comey was obeying the president’s order to find the leakers?)

So, I don’t know if you trust anyone currently in the government to aggressively investigate their John McCain-style Good Friends.

What I know is that if there are people, there are factions that don’t like each other.

What Sessions needs to do is get some bureaucratic cliques to go after each other. Get one guy to tell you which assholes he hates are leaking, then they’ll tell you the first asshole was leaking.

Divide and conquer, they’ll supply the division, you supply the conquering. Pretty soon you put all the Obama leftovers in jail where they belong to clear out room for the next set of assholes. Hopefully they’ll hate Americans less.

 

Okay, I knew this was obstruction of justice, I also knew Debbie Wasserman Schultz was an idiot, I didn’t realize she’d loudly proclaim both things in one sentence.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

“This was not my laptop. I have never seen that laptop. I don’t know what’s on the laptop,” she said Thursday. She said it was Imran’s laptop but purchased using taxpayer funds from her office.

So it wasn’t hers? That means she inserted herself into a criminal investigation for a third party.

Don’t get me wrong, like you I know we don’t have a rule of law for prominent Dems so she won’t pay for it except possibly electorally, but admitting felony obstruction of justice is still even more stupid than I figured she would be.

 

I already knew this was my favorite Light For Darkness, we see this, which I already knew

Border security agents estimate upwards of 500 migrants a day are now breaching Canada’s border by walking along a dirt crossing into the Quebec town of Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle.

Once there, they get what they want.

They get arrested, thereby opening the door to claiming refugee status, safe haven, and welfare benefits that will be paid through the property taxes of whatever municipality becomes their home.

Gaming Canada’s system is very easy, if you don’t have identification so they can’t figure out where you’re from, they can’t deport you for instance.

I also knew Trudeau was a lefty fool. But what I didn’t know was exactly how lefty and how foolish. This is the graphic used by Our Light.

Seriously? Canada has a core identity, they’re Not America. Just ask any Canadian in Europe.

 

Coup Coup

We all knew this, but more are starting to notice it.

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration…

All the while, the permanent bureaucracy, particularly in the intelligence community, started an unending and almost daily series of leaks meant to paralyze the administration…

That concept of a silent of slow-motion coup would be picked up as the effort against Trump accelerated, as I wrote on May 18, 2017, Some dare call the anti-Trump feeding frenzy a “coup” attempt.

It’s getting too blatant. Our fine betters really seem to think that if they Get Rid Of Trump we’ll all give up and go back to sleep.

Too late, the part of America that makes it work are Woke too.

 

What we all knew but that Shep Smith and other ignorant and foolish lefties claimed was A Lie By Trump!!!!!!!

Four state Registry of Motor Vehicle clerks along with two other people were arrested Wednesday after authorities say they were making false identifications through the registry and selling them to people living in the country illegally, some of whom had been deported in the past.

Some of those phony licenses and identifications were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

By ‘some’, I’d bet this “journolist” means, “Most”. The Dems and their media arm were busy encouraging it after all.

But Trump Was Racist And A Liar When He Pointed Out What We All Knew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The FBI are Hillary’s Bitches! and the media did everything they could to hide Hillary’s feloniosities!

A new email dump from the FBI via a FOIA request by the ACLJ reveals what appears to be collusion between the media and the DOJ to squash the story about the 2016 meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix, AZ.

Also Comey reportedly said the FBI had no documents related to this meeting to fill a prior FOIA request. That apparently isn’t true, given this new email dump.

Well, duh. We watched that shit Live! On TV!.

It’s pretty endy and funny that the Dept. of “Justice” was doing everything they could to forestall justice and the media, supposed disseminater of news, was hiding the news. The collusion angle is what gives it that extra ooomph.

 

Okay, this one we all knew and Krauthammer knows it as well since he’s one of the ones he’s talking about.

Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer warned Thursday night that members of the political establishment, including some Republicans, are angling to remove President Trump from office.

That’s very Clintonian. Admit as little as is proven but deny what can be implausibly denied.

‘Sure, some Republicans want Trump, but not all or even most!’ when it’s all of the DC set, whether GOP pols or conservative “Thinkers”. Krauthammer is a Never-Trumper in good standing after all.

 

Okay, this one just makes me laugh. After so long trying to conflate legal and illegal immigration, our fine betters have managed to make Americans accept that they are the same!

Roughly sixty percent of surveyed respondents want to stop all legal and illegal immigration, says a pair of sophisticated polls which allowed people to speak their mind without fear of progressives’ hate.

Mission Accomplished!

It’s funny that these polls implicitly accept that we are no longer allowed free speech by our fine Tolerant and Mostly-Peaceful countryxhim.

 

This one you would think we didn’t know,

A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target,

But we did know that! As everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, therefore they would surely be all in on the Felon’s Veto!

I don’t know enough about Australia to know if there will be heavy blowback on this but I hope so. In a free nation you really should give The Bitch the right to Ask Fer It!!!!, don’t you think?

 

Nother endy and funny deal.

The Honolulu Civil Beat coined a new term with this headline: NY Congressman Wants To Take Away Hawaii’s Gun-Control Rights.

Gun Control Rights, it’s right there in the Constitution! It’s in the Pursuit of Happiness clause.

Today’s Puritans have to pursue our happiness.

 

I knew that everything we thought was normal as little as a few months ago is now a hate-crime, but I didn’t realize it would get this ridiculous this soon.

…Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have assigned films a rating (i.e. G, PG, PG-13, etc.) based on their age appropriateness level.

But one group is seeking to add a new criteria to those age-inappropriate themes: gender roles.

 

As little as 10 years ago it was exactly the opposite. Hell, 50 years ago you could barely talk about that stuff in a non-X-Rated movie.

In theory, the system is quite simple: a film will be awarded the organisation’s seal of approval if it presents characters that defy gender stereotypes. Films designed for early childhood (between the ages of two and six) should depict boys and girls as friends and equals. By the time of early adolescence (between 11 and 13), films must demonstrate that worth is based on more than just physical beauty…

…CSM system increases accountability: “people making these products are sure they’re gender-balanced when they’re profoundly not.”

The problem with this bit of indoctrination is that they’re trying to change human nature by browbeating us.

We need something like Moore’s law that processor speeds for computers will double every two years, except for lefties.

Veeshir’s Nother Law: Lefty ridiculousness will double every time you pay attention to what they’re saying.

 

I didn’t realize football started last night, it did show me something that we all know but that our fine betters are refusing to know, We Want To Watch Football, We Don’t Want To Be Proselytized At.

I flipped past the game, it was in the middle of the 4th quarter with future truck drives playing against future supermarket workers and the announcers on NBC, Chris Collingsworth and whoever, were talking about how someone really needed to sign Colin Kaepernik because he’s what they need! Whenever a QB is injured, they said, Kaepernik Should Be In The Conversation.

They should be asking exactly the opposite question but they’re still denying that football fans don’t want to listen to your politics, we want to watch fucking football.

 

Okay, this one just bothers me cuz, while I have a low opinion of NYC people in general, this is just ignorant.

Though of course bread and butter are eaten all over, the buttered roll (or roll with butter, as it is known in parts of New Jersey) is a distinctly local phenomenon. Mention its name outside the New York metropolitan area and you would very likely be met with blank incomprehension.

He says, ‘NY metro area’ cuz he’s parochial and doesn’t get to upstate NY much. James Lileks, who I like, ignorantly responds

A Buttered. Roll.

I’ll grant you this: we didn’t have Buttered Rolls as such in Fargo. We had Rolls, with Butter. Perhaps that’s the difference. But when you went down to coffee in the basement after church, you got some rolls – often the type that split apart into three segments – and you put butter on them. Any holiday dinner, any family meal large enough to require a Relish Tray – rolls, with butter.

Yeah,  they do that in NY too, but nowhere outside NYS and the states around NYC are they laid out in the morning at every place that sells coffee.

Heaps of buttered hard rolls ready to pick up with your coffee att every place that sells coffee, except Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, they’re right next to the self-service coffee station.

I don’t see that anywhere else in the country. Most places that sell coffee don’t even have hard rolls unless they also sell sandwiches and it often takes far too long to explain that I just want a buttered fucking roll for my fucking coffee.

When I first starting traveling outside NY I used to ask all the time and people would look at me as if I was crazy, now I don’t even bother. Especially since it’s usually in the morning before I’ve had my fucking coffee. I have a low tolerance for people before I’ve had my coffee. Okay, lower tolerance.

I buy lots of french and italian bread and rolls so I make them at home but when I’m driving across the country all I want is a fucking buttered fucking roll and it’s fucking too much to fucking ask.

Sorry, pet peeve.

David, can I call you David?, Don’t look back in anger. It reduces the quality of the now, look back and laugh. It doesn’t make now any better but at least you’re laughing!

 

Look back and recall the laughs we had when Usubstantiated!!!!, Incidental!!!!!!!!! and Inadvertent!!!!!!!!!!! were the Journolist Words Of The Day

Nunes disclosed in his letter that the former Obama administration had “easy access” to sensitive classified information and that they may have used it to “achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Congressional investigators uncovered that “one official [whose] position has no apparent intelligence-related function”—now believed to be Power—”made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.”

Hmmmm, so there was spying on Trump, it was purposely leaked so that makes claims that Trump’s peeps were not targeted look like lies.

Why…. that looks astonishingly like Chicago-Machine-Politics?!?!?!?!?!?(!?!?!?!?!?!????????)

It doesn’t make a difference if it was Powers, Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI, whichever anti-American asshole collected a check for ‘being’ NSA or Joe fucking Biden, there was no legitimate reason to do that. The only reason was political.

It’s surprisingly easy to figure out what’s a real scandal for the Democratic party. If it looks like a conspiracy theory and they don’t report it, it’s true, if they harp on it, like Obama’s birth certificate deal, it’s not true.

 

We have to look back to Agree With Headlines But Disagree With The Body! (first in a series!)

McConnell Criticized For Pelosi-Like Tactics On Health Bill

I agree!

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is facing questions about his leadership after the Obamacare repeal debacle. Many Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus.

They did that shit for opposite reasons in relation to the legislation, Nancy wanted to pass the bill, McConnell wanted to not pass the bill. If you’re focused on fucking McCain and Collins, don’t. If Pass had more votes, more GOP senators would have happily voted no.

So the body of the article should read

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.DC) is facing questions about his leadership being a lying fuckhead after the Obamacare repeal debacle gambit. Many A Bunch of fish-throwing Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus to make sure Obamacare is the Law(less) of the Land. 

Same tactics, same endgame. Fuck Us!

 

You’d think we would be able to look back in anger what with all  the cameras following us around wherever we go. You’d be wrong to think that.

Regarding that abysmal clearance rate on CTA property, a reader had a good question:
Millions of dollars on cameras covering almost every inch of trains, buses, platforms and stations – and 90% of crime goes unsolved? Were taxpayers sold a bill of goods?

That’s a good point. I’d bet that thugs and criminals have known that for a while now. When one keeps not getting arrested even though he committed his crime Live! On TV! he’ll notice something so he’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell….

 

We’ll take time out from not looking back in anger to Look Back In Fucking Anger at one of Obama’s self-described Success Stories

More than one million malnourished young children in war-torn Yemen are at risk of cholera, the charity Save the Children warned on Wednesday as it began sending more health experts to the worst-hit areas.

Sonomabatch. Recall when Obama declared Yemen a success story.

He boned us, but he boned the rest of the world even more. Which is sorta scary, most places do not get even more ridiculous when their leaders are too ridiculous to be believed, they go the other route. They go all too real, like commies, nazis and garden-variety warlords. And middle ages diseases. Jebus.

 

We’re still not looking back in anger, let’s Look At Now In Anger! Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

Ben Rhodes Is A Person Of Interested In A House Hearing!!!!!!!! (who cares what it was about?)

House Freedom (FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Caucus Member (singular) Calls For Mueller’s Resignation!!!!!!!!

House Judiciary Committee Wants To Investigate Hillary!!!!

I could go on all day, but until it’s the Dept of Justice, not the Dept of “Justice”, it don’t mean shit. It means worse than shit.

Cuz it’s being thrown in our faces.

 

 

ABCNews looks back and I’m confused.

Foreign automakers have received billions of dollars in subsidies and tax incentives to build factories in the U.S. and create American jobs.

A new CBS News primetime series, “CBSN: On Assignment,” uncovers the hidden foreign workforce being used to build sections of U.S. auto plants. The show premieres on CBS on Monday, July 31 at 10 p.m. EST & PST, streaming simultaneously on CBSN, the network’s streaming news service.

For three years, Gerald Greiner managed safety on American construction projects for a German contractor called Eisenmann. His first job was at Mercedes in Vance, Alabama in 2013.

They did that investigation when Obama was POTUS. Why? At first I figured they were trying to make Trump look bad by reporting it, but it makes Trump look good.

Has anybody seen this on any TV news? I’m pretty surprised they even did that investigation, it seems like the kind of thing that got Cheryl Atkinsson  and some others fired.

Weird, good, but weird.

 

Brett Bozell of Media Research Center sez:

The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his “book,” that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain.  I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this impostor, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms.

 

Bozell’s in California, right? They have legal weed right? He’s been paying far too much attention to Minitrue and Congress for more than a decade to expect anything of the sort. I’m not against it, but it’s tilting at particularly annoying and willfully ignorant windmills.

While I’m For tilting at windmills, sooner or later Don Quixote is going to win, usually you just get ground down for grain… or something I don’t know I lost the metaphor a little while ago.

 

Here’s something can look back in laughter in a few months.

A Virginia Republican challenging Rep. Barbara Comstock in the party’s primary has spent the past couple of months posting about penis enlargement techniques on his personal website.

If this hits the Va news he should go with it, At least you know I’m not A Big Dick, unlike the rest of the GOP.

Of course his opponent could go with it as well, “My opponent wants to go to DC so he can be a big dick like Paul Ryan!”

 

Historically White, Upper-Class, Ivy League, University Has Panel On White Privilege. Following link to link to link we find this

The event, in its second year, drew 300 participants that mostly consisted of K-12 teachers and principals, the institute’s director Amy Wells said in a phone interview with The College Fix. The four-day conference included plenary sessions, dozens of workshops and dialogue sessions.

One presentation, called “Whiteness in schools,” provided “a history of Whiteness…

I don’t really care, I just hope at least one Powerpoint presentation had this picture.

 

Not cuz I care, just cuz  you know the participants in this idiocy would look back in Furious Anger while I want to look back in laughter.

 

Speaking of whiteness, arrogance and taints, let’s Look Now In Laughter

UNC’s arrogance over academic scandal has tainted the school’s once-great image

From 1993 through 2011, about 3,100 UNC students – nearly half of whom were athletes – took African studies classes that proved to be bogus. Classes generally did not meet; homework was not assigned.

Most required little work – a simple term paper at the end of the semester often sufficed.

UNC hired attorney Kenneth Wainstein to investigate, and he found that about 40 percent of those term papers were at least in part plagiarized, yet were accorded an average grade of A-minus.

Can we discuss the racism inherent in the system?

If I had substituted “wymyn” for “athlete” and “Wymyn’s Studies” or “Gender Studies” for “African studies” would that paragraph have been any different?

Of course it would have! That’s not “Arrogant”, that’s “Empowerment!” and it wouldn’t be a scandal.

It would still be full of taints.

 

I will honk and even arf for this fish that Trump is throwing.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) signed a waiver of environmental regulations on Tuesday to allow construction of upgrades to the border wall and new wall prototype projects to break ground.

Hell, forget arfin and honkin’, I had to cut-n-paste that one-handed.

 

I hate to look back in anger, but that Yemen shit pissed me off. Updated cuz I checkedThis is the first “Obama’s Fault” I’ve posted since January (I think, I meant not to do that). Not even close. 

Fuckhead pissed me off today.

 

I’ve been driving the Caballero and it’s been nice. The A/C ain’t working, but I’ve mostly driven it at night. Today is not bad, it’s overcast and rainy so it was only about 95 when I had to run to AJ.

On the highway back from I heard a bad noise, for a second I thought it was engine related but then realized it sounded like something was dragging. I pulled over and when I stopped, it stopped. I was happy. I left the engine running when I got out.

When I opened the door the noise started again, for just a second I thought, “Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!!!!!!!!!!! ME!” but it was just the side molding from the door that was dragging.

I can look back in laughter, it wasn’t so funny for a split second.

 

 

 

Does the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party want a revolution so they can get their emergency powers on?

I thought it was ridiculous at first, but the evidence just keeps mounting.

update below: I moved the gif, I had it in the wrong place. Now, back to our post!

Nother important, The Book We All Want To See!!!!!!!, Update!!!!!!!!! graphic stolen from DougM and his superior P-shop skills!

 

Now Really  Back To Our Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For years we’ve been discussing Failure Theater  and throwing fish at us to get us riled up to FIGHT OBAMA!!!!!!, but were called unhelpful, Nazi and Tea Partier. Turns out, we were actually two of the three.

“There’s no denying that he misses all of it,” says Cantor’s former deputy chief of staff, John Murray—a sentiment the ex-congressman himself confirms. When he talks to Boehner, Cantor tells me, Boehner will say something to the effect of “I am so glad I’m not there dealing with those mm-mm-mms”—those pesky Freedom Caucus members whom many in the GOP hold responsible for sparking the party’s new populist flavor and egging on the anger that led to Trump’s election.

Unhelpful in that we noticed GOP sliminess and Tea Partier because we wanted smaller gov’t. The Nazis, of course, were mostly killed off decades ago but their ideological descendants are the ones who want the gov’t to tell private enterprise how to do business.

But Cantor goes that extra slimy step.

 Not Cantor. “I never felt like that,” he says.,,

After seven years of pledging they could dismantle Obamacare, if only they had control of Congress and the White House, Republicans…

Asked if he feels partly responsible for their current predicament, Cantor is unequivocal. “Oh,” he says, “100 percent.”

He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.”

Ride the wave! The voters are too stupid to understand!!!!!!

He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.

Everybody should be embarrassed over every arf they ever gave.

A graphic representation

 

So… should we call the new party the Constitution Party or the Fuck DC Party? I keep going back and forth. I could be convinced to call it Trump’s Party just to freak people out, so long as he has no power in the party, he is a northeast liberal after all.

 

So…. as they were lying to us and not fighting Obama, what was Obama doing?

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Expanding the police state tactics the GOP and the Dems want. Yeah, we saw that shit.

With the Dept of “Justice” so focused on getting Trump and fixing the last election it’s funny that with all the spying and Big Brothering they couldn’t get any serious dirt on Trump.

That should tell you a lot about both Trump and the fuckheads who are busy trying to destroy the last vestige of the rule of law in America.

 

So…. what other slimy crap was the GOP ignoring while not watching what Obama was doing and not doing what they’ve repeatedly vowed to do?

Testimony of Thor Halvorssen to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

In 2012 I began researching a Venezuelan corruption scandal that also involved U.S. banks, companies, and even U.S. courts. This story should have received extensive exposure on the front pages of America’s national newspapers. Fusion GPS, however, was hired to spike these stories… Even though it was clearly acting as a public relations counsel on behalf of a foreign principal, Fusion GPS never registered under FARA and was able to engage in nefarious activities without public scrutiny…

Although shielding their clients from investigative reporting was an important part of Fusion GPS’s campaign, it was by no means the only thing they did for Chávez’s cronies. Alek Boyd, a prolific investigative journalist based in London who had published extensively about Derwick’s corruption, was targeted with false accusations of being a notorious pedophile, a convicted drug trafficker, a car thief, and an extortionist. Rather than backing down after these items appeared about him online, Mr. Boyd increased his scrutiny of Derwick. Weeks later, in an unsolved crime, three men broke into Mr. Boyd’s home, stole his computer equipment, and placed photographs of his daughters, taken with a telephoto lens, into the pockets of his raincoat. Mr. Boyd subsequently received a hand-written anonymous letter threatening his daughters with rape.

Since they also are important in Get Trump, they have unqualified immunity for all criminal acts.

 

Speaking of unqualified immunity for criminal acts, anybody related to the Democrats and/or Getting Trump.

Democrat IT Spy Tries To Run To Pakistan: We Connect Some Dots For You

Since our fine media betters are far too busy creating fake news from lying anonymous sources, read that. You can tell it’s not real journalism as they use named sources and publicly available information.

Amateurs.

Now this surprises the hell out of me!

GO FIGURE: Busted Pakistani IT Staffer for the DNC Lawyers Up With… Clinton Cronies

Huh, I thought they were all working for Mueller.

 

They banned guns at George Washington’s estate. A right the man fought for and they’re pissing on it. In Virginia. The home of Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison and the aforementioned George Washington.

I got out just in time.

Meanwhile, in Florida,

Imagine you’re a fully-armed Adam Putnam, Florida’s current Agriculture Commissioner and a strong contender for governor, where do you go out to eat? Well, for starters you tell your staff to take you to a place where you can pack heat and simultaneously eat meat.

Awesome. He’s like Jeb, GOP Voters Are Racists, Bush or Charlie Crist only opposite.

 

I linked Blazing Cat Fur yesterday but didn’t link the source of the article, when I saw the article later and read it I realized I’d missed the most ridiculous part of the thing.

Along with their bold image, Clemmer wrote a poem about their first period.

By “their” they mean, “This guy who’s pretending to be a woman.” So…. did he stab himself to get his period?

Here’s what I missed.

Clemmer describes themself as an activist in the menstrual health space and has created a character called Toni the Tampon which aims to help break down the stigma around periods.

No, really. There is “activist in menstrual health space” and “Toni the Tampon” in the same sentence.

Also, there is “activist in menstrual health space” in a sentence and “Toni the Tampon” in a sentence.

 

Daily Mail fact-checks Snopes

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse…

But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website’s version of events – including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

So…”Mostly False”.

Yeah, we’ve been noticing that since at least when they lied about Swift Boat Vets to try to get J Effin Kerry elected.

 

Was this even a question?

European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migrant crisis have seen a collapse in illegal migration, while unprotected states have seen it increase.

You still need people with balls on the other side (Hey China! Say hi to the Mongols for me!), but I’m pretty sure Hadrian showed us that walls work if you do have balls.

 

Why is Chicago called Second City?

The link’s dead, but in 2013 I wrote about

I love this one too. So NYC has a rat problem, just like any other hundreds of year old city with moldering, decaying sections, docks and underground areas, so they’re looking to fix it. A laudable goal, too bad it’s NYC pols who are in charge.

They’re going to sterilize female rats, which will mean they’re going to spread sterilizing stuff around the city.

I don’t know exactly how that’s going to fuck things up, but I do know that it will fuck things up and it won’t sterilize all the rats so all it will do is fuck things up without actually solving the problem. It will require a fix for whatever that fix fucks up.

I couldn’t find any results except in restricted areas, so I have no idea what it screwed up.

But that’s not the point, in 2017 we see

Chicago has tried just about everything to control a burgeoning rat population fueled by a construction boom and a mild winter. None of it has worked in a city seemingly overrun by the rodents.

Now, City Hall is trying something old and something new: A poison designed to make rats infertile, and dry-ice that produced promising results in parks and medians before the city was forced to stop the rat-suffocation experiment after learning the dry ice had not been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Second City indeed.

Good luck with that. I seriously wonder what horrible thing it’s going to accomplish since they cannot possibly do anything useful with moldering underground areas that have been breeding rats since before that cow burned the city down.

No, not the Golden Cow who left to try to burn the nation down, Mrs. O’Leary’s cow (who got a bum rap!).

 

Via  Zilla of the Resistance* we see something I didn’t know and it’s fucking awesome.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he (Wrong Way Corrigan V) filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?”

Awe-fucking-some! It’s all Americans’ God-Given Right to risk our own lives. With the Battle Cry: Hold My Beer!

*She’s not part of the nazi/leftists ‘resistance’, she’s been resisting the nazi/leftists for a long time. 

 

The Sun, driver of our climate, is just refusing to play the old Warmening Game.

Unlike the dude above pretending to be a woman, the Sun ain’t spotting.

One sun spot.

So not only does Gaia hate Al Gore, the Sun does as well.

Problem: Powerful Politicians needs graft!

Solution:

I’ve been digging a bit more into the I-65 Bridge between Jeffersonville, IN and Louisville, KY.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_expensive_U.S._public_works_projects

Fourth most expensive public works project in US history. More expensive than Verazzano Narrows, the Golden Gate, or an entire freeway from Evansville to Indianapolis, and it crosses a few hundred yards of muddy Ohio river. There are bridges out there 5 miles, 10 miles, 100 miles long that didn’t cost as much.

More expensive than the Verazzano Narrows bridge in NY? Think about that, this bridge is more expensive than a project that included bribes to some of the most expensive politicians in the nation?!?!?!

 

Problem: Trump bans transgender from the US military.

Solution: LGBT Army formed to take on ISIS.

 

Problem: Sessions is all about taking our stuff.

Solution

I’m a little surprised that Matthew Yglesias said something intelligent but there it is.

 

Problem: DNC staffers are arrested for various felonies and possible espionage.

 

Solution: Media ignores it.

Again, I’m surprised minitrue outlet in good lying noticed this and still reported on it.

 

Problem: GOP voters are pissed off at the GOP.

 

Solution:

According to Breitbart, House Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Matt Gaetz of Florida are launching a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s relationship with the FBI during its investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

I ain’t arfing.

 

Problem:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued Tuesday that President Trump is trying to “bully” Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an attempt to push him out of office,

Solution: Explain that Sessions works for Trump and serves at his convenience.

Nother problem: Schumer is a lying sack of corruption so he already knows that so explaining shit to him is as useless as expecting the GOP to do what they’ve run on in the last few elections.

Ubersolution: Vote out every incumbent in America. Get rid of the county recorder in Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area, Alaska.

 

Problem: Much of Canada is too cold to be useful or even very livable.

Solution via a light in the darkness:

Because of Premier Kathleen Wynne, Ontarians are now paying almost $2 billion more a year, ostensibly to fight climate change, through her cap-and-trade carbon pricing scheme.

Wait….that’s not a solution! That’s a scam to take money from the productive to give to parasites!

Convincing Canadians they want to spend $billions to fight a made-up problem and thus, ostesibly, keep their country an ice-box is one of the most impressive cons in the history of conning.

So the real problem: What would illustrate this Henry Gondorff approved long-con?

Solution:

 

 

Problem: Kago can’t demand food or explain how it wasn’t him who shit on the bathroom floor.

Solution:

An Amazon-commissioned ‘Shop the Future’ report claims the technology could hit the shops within 10 years and experts in the US are beginning to work on the machine to allow pooches to finally be able to answer the question ‘who’s a good boy?’.

So now Kago will be able to lie with body language and a computer device.

 

Problem: alexthechick’s birthday is coming up!

Solution:

Iconic Clown Motel for sale in Tonopah

How do you start a gofundme campaign?

 

Problem: Australia has too many cows.

Solution:

 

Problem: What to do with the Caballero?

Solution:

It’ll still need emissions controls. Now I have to shop for a crapalytic converter.
