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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But wait! There’s still more!

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

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

GOP Voter Device

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

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

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

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

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

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

So far so good, then this

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

Troll Level: Trumpian!

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

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

 

Semi-related,

Headline

There is no left left in Israel

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

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

 

Evergreen headline:

SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR CONTINUES

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

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army continues to make indiscriminate attacks:

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

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

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

Your shoelaces are untied!

Related, watching the Dems defend this

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Heh. RTWT, it’s pretty darn fun.

That it happened in Austin just makes it sweeter.

So why the post? I have a Caballero story that I just had to share with anybody following the Caballero Trials.

The last year went much as previous, requiring $500 to $1,000 every now and then. It would run great for a while, then not so much. Electrical system, suspension and other stuff. The alternator went out last week so I had it replaced but I’ve had problems with the Holley carb. I got it back, drove it to work and back, about 27 miles roundtrip, and smelled gas. The carb is leaking gas on the manifold. So back to the garage. They fixed it fairly quickly so today my buddy went to pick it up. He said as he drove up he saw people spraying it with something white, at first he thought it had caught on fire and they were putting it out.

No such luck. They said a cloud of bees, AZ only has killer bees anymore, flew up and went right into the car. No, really. Fucking killer bees infested my fucking car.

Artist’s rendition

Now I need to find an exorcist I guess. Maybe I should have done that first. Eh, you live and you learn.

Since we’re here, let’s tube!

Staying with Wrath of God stuff, I do have to wonder if Bill Kristol, erstwhile creator of Kristollnacht, visited the Oracle at Delphi and got the same oracle as Croesus. If you go to war with Trump, a mighty empire shall fall! And sure enough, an empire fell.

When last we tubed it was all the same stuff just a different day. So what do we have today? All the same stuff becoming painfully obvious even to the most obtuse but our fine betters in the media and the We’re Better and Smarter Than You party pretending it’s not actually true.

The puppy blenders’ cobs usually just self promote or are really Elite and so, inside the bubble so they believe all the stuff the Elite believe. This post about Mueller cracks me up.

“The most overlooked aspect is how the 2016 DOJ/FBI investigative unit that existed to investigate Trump before the election, is the same group of people who transferred into Mueller’s probe in 2017 to continue investigating Trump after the election.  It always seems odd to me that people don’t realize this very basic point.

Wait’ll they find out they’re the same people who ‘investigated’ Hillary. Boy will they be surprised!

It’s essential reading and will make for a fascinating comparison when the Mueller Report becomes public.

Essential reading for those who still think the Wash Post is “center left” and CNN is a news organization I guess.

Which leads to this

A majority of Americans now believe that the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election was “politically motivated,”

Normal people who tried to pay attention are realizing all the Conspiracy Theorists Who Must Be Ignored and Dismissed were actually pretty darn accurate. What happens when normal Americans figure out what was going on and watch as there are no repercussions for blatant feloniizing and possible treason in an attempted coup?

Sancho My Horse! My Armor!

Judicial Watch Sues for Details of an Intelligence Office Meeting with FBI Regarding Security Threats Caused by Hillary Clinton’s Illicit Email System

Windmills a billion, Judicial Watch, eh,a  couple close ones but still no jail time for felonious treason. I do stand by my idea of firing everybody in the Dept of “Justice” GS-12 up ( maybe GS-9?) and replacing them with the fine folks at Judicial Watch.

This ain’t helpful either.

‘We’ve never seen anything like this’: As Trump threatens to close border, migrants overwhelm Texas cities

Jebus, as our fine betters declare There Is No Emergency!!!!!!!! and try to stop him.

People who are mad at Trump for not building a wall yet have to understand he’s alone. The GOP is against it as much as the Dems.

I do wonder what happens After Trump. AT we’re on our own again except our fine betters will be working overtime to make sure we don’t get that sense of independence and uppitiness that gave us Trump and there aren’t many people who would be on our side who have the money, notoriety and balls Trump has. Rush for POTUS? Kurt Schlichter? Veeshir? Having the NY Times uncover much of my 20s would be kinda interesting.

What with all the noticing of reality by normal folks it could get interesting.

Like Yellow Vest interesting.

Yellow vest activists protested across France on Saturday to support an activist injured last week in a confrontation with police and to show that they remain mobilized against the government’s economic policies.

The demonstrators were undeterred by police protest bans or repeated injuries in 20 weeks of demonstrations.

 

I don’t watch the news much, but I have not seen anything at all about that even though EUnuchs have been protesting a gov’t for 20 weeks, that’s nearly 5 months. And people are getting attacked by the gov’t. Normal people, not “youths” having a car-b-que.

I didn’t see this when it happened and it’s fucking hilarious.

France recalled its ambassador to Italy on Thursday in protest after Italy’s deputy prime minister met near Paris this week with prominent members of the antigovernment yellow-vest movement

That’s funny. The Italians aren’t really happy with EUnuchs.

Our media isn’t covering it much so we don’t get any ideas.

They really need to understand that,  as someone said, normal Americans have two modes, go along to get along and kill them all!. Just ask Nazis and Imperial Japan.

The whole, Jussie Smollet deal is not helping keep us unriled. This op-ed by the Friend of Jussie who “colloquially recused” herself (read: Not Recused herself) is pretty darn infuriatingly hilarious.

So, why isn’t Smollett in prison or at least on trial? There are two different answers to this, both equally important….

First, the law. There were specific aspects of the evidence and testimony presented to the office that would have made securing a conviction against Smollett uncertain… (A blatant lie V)

” These felonies are routinely resolved, particularly in cases involving suspects with no prior criminal record, long before a case ever nears a courtroom and often without either jail time or monetary penalties (but always with the defendant admitting guilt, not proclaiming his innocence and blasting police V)

I am also afraid when I see CPD resources used to initially cover up the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. (SQUIRREL!!!! V)

Since it seems politically expedient right now to question my motives and actions,  (possibly, but also blatantly rational V)

 

Okay, that’s both infuriatingly smug and yet, strangely hilarious that she thinks it’s an excuse.

In Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb!!!!!! news

House Republicans Demand Action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The letter is especially stunning coming from all GOP members of the committee, including moderate Republicans such as Reps. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Their voices join House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) in calling for Schiff’s resignation as chairman

Stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I still ain’t arfing.

 

Keeping with DougM , he wonders if the Venezuelan secret policeman’s HQ catching on fire is a Reichstag Fire deal.

Late stage socialist is hard to figure out.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence but is it Maduro going after ‘dissidents’? Is it a Reichstag Fire? Is it RevoluciĂłn?
I’m not sure if Hamas is in Venezuela, but isn’t Hezbollah? That would be kinda funny.

With the Russians there, you have to wonder about them.

Tsar Putin I is, of course, a murderous, medievil tyrant, so you have to include him in the mix. Recall his tsarlings routinely poison their opponents in true, Let’s Get Rasputin!, fashion. So I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like that to try to get an SSR, or whatever tsars call them, in South America. Either Maduro or his successor becomes Putin’s tsarling. He’s possibly madder at Reagan than the NY Times over stopping Russia in central and South America. The fact that Venezuela is looking all middle ages only reinforces this.

If that’s happening, I wonder what Putin’s thinking about our poofy-haired maniac?

I figure he’s thinking war is not Trump’s forte, no matter how many mobsters he’s had to bribe and hang out with to get stuff done in NYC and NJ, and his Sec Def, Patrick Shanahan, is a Boeing exec whose job is to build up the military. That’s not exactly a pairing that would strike fear into the heart of the first KBG Tsar. I could see Trump finding a Pinochet to help turn a lot of commies into good commies. Now that would be funny.

Okay, who here thinks it would be funny if WWIII began in a place where WWs I and II were barely fought? Yeah, it is sorta ironic and oh so 20teens.

China, busily trying to take over the Panama Canal by importing millions of Chinese, might get involved to just keep things rolling. I’m not sure which side they’d be on. They do want Vladivostok area pretty badly but Japan would be on our side and they don’t like the Japanese.

That’s the kind of thing that keeps it all interesting.

 

A silly question

To the mattresses. Jebus, where have you been for the last 10 years?

Now some things that piss me off.

First, the No Knock Raid is a scourge on our nation.

A guy called SWAT on another guy over Call of Duty (the wrong guy as it turns out), and the swattee was killed and the first guy got ten years in jail. Now, I’m not defending the swatter, I’m as against that as I can be, but what about the SWAT guys who went all gung-ho on an anonymous phone call and

“We were told that someone had an argument with their mother, and dad was accidentally shot and that now that person was holding brother, sister, and mother hostage,” a police official told reporters at a spontaneous press conference after the shooting. He said that a 28-year-old man—later identified by family as Andrew Finch—”came to the front door” and “one of our officers discharged his weapon,” killing Finch.

?

Yeah, the gun must have just ‘gone off, no, the fucking guy shot an unarmed dude in his doorway over an anonymous phone call

No reason for the shooting was given.

Yeah, we know the reason, because fuck you is why.

and there were no repercussions for the cop. That pisses me off. Sure they were used, but they went all Tacticool over an anonymous phone call. Why not call the house and ask for Joe? See what happens? Nah, let’s get dressed up in our tacticool battle gear and get all adrenalined up and go knock down some doors! Eh, I guess we’re lucky they didn’t bring in the MRAPs.

Man does that piss me off nearly as much as asset forfeiture.

And lastly (shut up), this really pisses me off.

A Bernie Bro-ette accuses Biden of stuff we all knew about and it’s News!!!!!! but it’s not news that it’s a Bernie Bro-ette.

Which, with this other data point

Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and author of bestselling book “Clinton Cash” — a book that played a pivotal role in the 2016 election — has a new investigative book on government corruption that involves a series of accusations involving billions of dollars against some major political players, including former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

 

shows the knives are out for Biden and possibly J Effen Kerry.

I really wanted to see Biden in the No! I’m More Stupider!!!! Dem primary with Elder Statesman Kerry maybe throwing his chapeau in the ring. Oh well.

So what did we learn today?

Arizona’s carolina locusts are lazy gets who outsource their Wrath of God to killer bees.

Recursiving. Again.

The thing that gets me is that I just don’t think there will be any repercussions for all the various felonies and treasons committed by our fine betters.

The FBI dude who was in charge of clearing Hillary and Getting Trump!!!! was, get this, a fan of Hillary and a Trump hater!

Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): “I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40”

So what horrible thing happened to this perverter of justice? Reassigned.

He might be Forced To Retire with full pension and benefits and severance package That’s what’ll probably happen.

We all watched it happen. Watched all The Important People pretend it wasn’t happening. You know as soon as they can they’re gonna go back to business as usual. Who you gonna vote for? Roy Moore?

 

Exactly. We’ve had this argument many times, we’ve won some and lost some, but we won the POTUSy without the GOP. They can’t win the POTUSy without us. Primary season is coming up. We got rid of Flake even before it started, I wonder if they’ll lose anymore.

 

Some funny middle east shit.

An Organisation of Islamic Co-operation communique declares US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise the city as Israel’s capital as “null and void”.

It also says the move has signalled Washington’s withdrawal from its role in the Middle East peace process.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas earlier said the UN should take over.

That would be funny. How, exactly, would the UN enforce their “Kill The Jews!!!!!” resolution?

They accuse the US of “deliberately undermining” peace efforts and warn that it has given “impetus to extremism and terrorism”.

Translation

 

But, our correspondent says, some Muslim leaders are more pro-Trump than others; Saudi Arabia and Egypt only sent ministers to this meeting, possibly to keep the US on board…

Bingo bango bongo. There’s currently a fairly violent war going on between Iran and The House of Saud, they’re not going to make nice with each other now. Especially since the Israelis are working with the anti-Iranian side.

With this absolutely awesome line

…So, he adds, there was a semblance of unity at the OIC summit and tough talk, but little sign that Donald Trump was listening.

The best response in decades.

Better response

The White House said Mr Abbas’s comments were of the kind of rhetoric that “has prevented peace for years”.

Perzactly. You could just say that after anything Abbas says and it would fit.

 

More stuff we knew.

US national security adviser HR McMaster condemned Qatar and Turkey for taking on a “new role” as the main sponsors and sources of funding for extremist Islamist ideology that targets western interests.

Qatar and Turkey are sponsors of terrorism! Whodathunk that? It’s been going on for years, but we watched all of the above shit, including Turkey and Qatar, really get rolling while Comeying!. See, this is why I can’t blog. I’m overComey!!!!ed. I just can’t do it anymore. I did a search to find some links but they’re all in Comey!!!!!!ing posts. I started reading and got pissed off. As they were whitewashing Hillary’s many crimes and trying to make some up for Trump, this shit was going on.

And nothing will happen to them. Nothing is going to happen to all the people we watched commit felonies and possibly treasonous shit, like the Uranium One deal, and nothing will happen to the assholes who watched the world go to shit.

Not a fucking thing.

So let’s laugh at some college students.

A Harvard student recently made a bold public declaration, admitting that, while at a bar with friends one time, he talked about the attractiveness of the women in his class.

Daniel Hanrahan, a master’s student in Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, wrote in The Harvard Crimson this weekthat “the Harvard community is responsible for sexual assault.” Hanrahan notes that, while the men who sexually assault women are ultimately the ones responsible for their crimes, we should also not ignore “the behavior of people not directly involved in sexual assaults.” It is up to bystanders, Hanrahan writes, to help put an end to sexual assault culture.

Why do I keep seeing the sidekick guy in Demolition Man, the guy who likes the Oscar Meyer weiner song (sorta insensitive to sissy kids and fat kids there chief!)
It’s funny how often really bad movies foretell the future.

I’m sorry to say that the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of robed sissies.

Except they haven’t changed to unisex robes (to stop Sexual Harassment!) yet.

 

I like this one for a totally different reason.

 he sent an email to his fellow College Republicans with a number of suggestions, some in jest, on countering arguments about “white privilege.” As a joke, Tokie concluded his email by suggesting to his peers: “Take the liberal tears from the idiot you just destroyed in your debate, dissemble your American made Springfield M1911 .45 caliber handgun and apply the tears in order to clean the mechanism, reassemble and proceed to purchase ANTIFA and ISIS hunting permits and max out on tags[.]” The email was eventually shared to the broader campus community.

So pretty funny and impressive that there’s a college where funny can still be.

On Nov. 8, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Sally Walker and Vice President of Finance and Administration Jerry White informed Tokie that he was charged with violating Albion’s policy against the “[u]se of, or threatened use of, physical force or violence.”

Wait! I don’t like that one! I’m not at all gruntled with that article.  Well, maybe a little gruntled. That’s a pretty milquetoast ‘threat’. They might just have to have some response, in some colleges he’d already have been expelled, hung and burned in effigy ( possibly in person) and charged with a felony.

 

Passed my first National Institute for Metalworking Skills certification test, just written stuff and making sure you know how to read non-digital, measuring instruments. A place where I thought I’d like to work came in for a presentation and I asked about my prospects, I’d already been looking at this place, and he seemed to think I could get a job with my engineering degree. I’m gonna check. I’ll finish this program, I can do both, and CNC is my retirement plan. Having a job-shop could keep me occupied and in ammo.

Speaking of which, let’s end on a little bit of awesome.

Detatchable mag, pump-action 870. 3  and 6 round mags.

I’m leary of automatics. I know people who swear by them, but I like a pump, my second gun was a 20 gauge 870 Wingmaster that I sold long ago. I was very broke in California.

You know within a year there will be 25 round mags for it at least too. That’s bad ass. All it needs is a bayonet mount.

 

 

 

 

Man, just tubing my tube is all about seeing shit we’ve been talking about for more than a year. That’s why I can’t work up a good OUTRAGE!!!!! I mean, I’ve been fucking OUTRAGED!!!! by this shit for a long dam time so seeing others finally notice it and act all surprised is sorta frustrating.

I can’t even act surprised at this shit.

Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI are Hillary’s Bitches!

The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server.

Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok

Well, duh. We watched that Tom Sawyer “Investigation”/whitewashing unfold last year in the months leading up to the election and we’ve been watching the search for something, anything! on Trump since the election.

Let’s Translate!

 ABC News on Saturday suspended investigative reporter Brian Ross for four weeks without pay for his erroneous report on Michael Flynn, which it called a “serious error.”

We all know the reason he’s been suspended is because he got caught fabricating a story, not that he fabricated a story. If any of our minitrue betters were serious about being against fakenews, CNN would be off the air and the NY Times would be fresh out of journolisters. The Wash Post doesn’t even pretend and hasn’t since Chimpy McBusHitler was raining terror across the world.

GOP voters device

U.S. House Republicans are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material related to the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.

Yeah, we’ve been getting smacked in the face with fish for a long time now, this bit is particularly stinky.

Contempt proceedings don’t mean shit. They have avenues they could go that would actually accomplish something, this is just to get us arfin’ and honkin’.

 

This is hilarious.

Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more secular.

The Red Cross is getting rid of crosses. Pretty darn funny.

Of course, we’ve all known the International Red Cross is full of lefty assholes who hate Xtians for a long time. Duh. They’re getting away from that icky ‘cross’ thing and focusing on the Red thing.

 

Jeff Flake hates the people who voted for him, film at….uhhh…. whenever he’s on camera I guess.

Trump’s in favor of protecting America’s borders!

Media meltdown and the damage it does to democracy

No, democracy is causing the media meltdown. They get upset when we vote the wrong way.

In other words, our fine media betters damage democracy by their lying and fakenewsing, now that we’re onto their schtick and voted the wrong damn way last year they’re melting down.

 

This I didn’t know

Is the IG going after Hillary’s Bitches? Now that would be a fucking surprise. I hope that’s not just trying to get me to arf, honk and forget that the whole Dept. of “Justice” needs to be thrown in jail and be replaced by the fine folks at Judicial Watch.

Speaking of which

Judicial Watch today released 29 pages of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents related to the June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. The documents show that FBI officials were more concerned about leaks than the actual meeting itself

That’s the shit the DO”J” should be for, not against. And why they all need to be fired and replaced with Judicial Watch folks.

 

This sorta surprises me.

President Donald Trump unveiled a plan Monday in Utah to dramatically scale back two national monuments – calling it an important move for ‘states’ rights.’

Trump’s a northeast liberal, they are against western states using their land for people. In the east, they took care of that shit decades/centuries ago so they can afford to be all against that shit.

Of course, as we all know, ‘states rights’ is code for “slavery” and since we all know Trump is a slaver since he stopped bribing Dems and put that (R) after his name so we all should have known that.

 

This is awesome, but I learned it long ago.

That’s why I don’t buy presents for my family, I got sick of being called names by willfully-ignorant fools.

 

 

 

 

Jebus, is there nothing else going on in America besides all the Democrats being revealed as the sexual predators they are? I’m trying to avoid it, but whenever I read anything, listen to the news or watch TV news it’s all Democrats and their sexual predations. With people trying to blame it on Trump, which is fucking hilarious.

Now we have Garrison Keillor.

Garrison fucking Keillor? Seriously? That one made me laugh almost as much as Matt Lauer.

The hilarity of Matt Lauer being OUTED!!!!!! is just too funny. Why, it’s too bad there wasn’t anybody near him all those years whose job it was to report news! Maybe they could have told us of him or of the various Congresscritters who are being OUTED!!!!!!, all of them with the de rigueur “We all knew about that.”

You know who all this revealing of Democrats’ sexual predation and subsequent defenses by our betters helps? Roy Moore, that’s who.

Alabama voters are increasingly skeptical of the accusations against GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, according to new polling released this week that also shows Mr. Moore has recovered his lead in the race.

I was skeptical because of who was pushing the allegations, now it’s just noise. Particularly stupid, partisan noise.

Speaking of stupid, partisan noise,

Dammit, three assholes didn’t stand for the National Anthem on Thanksgiving, one of them was a NY Giant.

Motherfucker. And for some reason, they’re benching Eli cuz the rest of the team sucks and putting in Geno, I’m Such A Chump Even The Jets Dumped My Ass, Smith. Sometimes boycotting is easy.

 

Wash Post: What Pence was true but we don’t like him so….3 pinnochios!

We were tempted to say that Pence earns Four Pinocchios, but the numbers are technically correct.

By “technically correct” they mean, “True but we hate him”

Assholes. Fake News! It’s a way of life!

 

Speaking of fakenewswers who lie, CNN! (and the Hill!)

President Trump’s top spokeswoman celebrated news Tuesday that CNN would be boycotting the White House Christmas party this year.

“Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted.

Bwahahahahahhahaha. CNN tries to troll Trump, CNN look like fools. Film at… whenever you feel like watching CNN I guess.

 

Can you sell Mom n’ Pop businesses short, like stocks, expecting them to go down in value?

A controversial bill is currently working its way through  (Philadelphia) city hall designed to regulate ‘stop and go’ liquor stores. One part of the bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass inside their stores.

They don’t put that very expensive, bullet-proof glass up for a fashion statement.

I can answer this question

 But at what cost to their safety?

Lots of dead convenience and liquor store employees. Followed by lots of the owners leaving and losing their shirts as their formerly barely-profitable businesses go to $0 value so they can’t be sold.

Oh, and with the lots of shootings at those places, at least a few bad guys will be killed too. So it’ll only mostly be bad.

 

I Wuz Wrong!

The convicted Croatian war criminal Slobodan Praljak has died after taking poison in court in The Hague.

The Hague isn’t totally useless!!!!! They actually managed to get at least one murderous asshole dead. So….. 1 dead, a billion walking free or dead from old age as their “trials” and “appeals” ground on for decades.

 

That’s it. I keep trying to tube to find some stuff to post but it’s all stupid, all the time. The Norks having the capability to hit the US is sorta scary, but we won’t have to worry about that until China is ready for their war, and I’m hoping they’re not ready yet.

I know, hope in one hand, jerk off in the other and see which gets sticky first, but still….

 

Read The Sea People, latest in the Dies the Fire series.

I really liked the first three books, Dies the Fire, The Protector’s War and A Meeting at Corvallis. They were very darn good. And very darn good for Stirling is very darn good indeed.

The next part of the series, with the kids of the originals, started getting too mystical for me but he’s such a good writer, and the books were excellent, so I kept reading.

After The Given Sacrifice, we’re on to the grandkids or great grandkids of the original folks, and now it’s all fantasy and quests and a plethora of magical swords. Seriously, every time you turn around there’s another one. Two good ones, so far, and some bad ones.

The Desert and the Blade was very good, the one after that pretty much sucked. He over-describes things, I accept that, but that book had too many 3-page descriptions of meals and a shitload of pages dedicated to describing Ranger flets, which have already been adequately described in previous books. It could have been about 20 pages long and we wouldn’t have missed very much.

The last one, The Sea People, was pretty good but I’m done with it. It was all magical swords and spirit voyages and shit.

I don’t read fantasy books much, I know lots of sci-fi is basically fantasy books with blasters instead of magic swords, but I do try to stick to hard sci-fi and stay away from deus ex machina stuff, like Star Trek TNG ‘inverting the subspace particle’ field to fix every damn thing or Q coming in and it was all a joke.

I saw an ad for the beginning of a new series about alternate history of WWI, hopefully it’s as good as other Stirling books.

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’T: Mattis 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 checked: This 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.
