There’s a little girl who walks her dogs in the morning right by my trailer, there’s a grass area and a dog park across the street. If I’m sitting outside with Kago her dogs come over to say hi to Kago as they go by. He likes them, he sniffs butts with the 3 year old and smacks the puppy in the face when he tries to play. Then the puppy goes to his water bowl and assaults the water, the older one drinks, Kago drinks, and off they go. We would chat about nothing as the dogs did their thing.

One day I was wearing an NRA hat and met her and her pasty-faced, sunken chested, soul-patched boyfriend, they’re probably around 30 or a little younger. I hadn’t seen her in the two weeks since. I was wondering if I had been shunned. Yesterday I took Kago for his afternoon constitutional and as he was sniffing in the dog park, with the gate open, I noticed her two dogs running over. She came over sorta reluctantly. We chatted. She’s been trying to walk one of the dogs off the leash, today he ran over to sniff Kago’s butt, she came over with the puppy. I wonder if I was shunned but since we’re right by the grass area, she has to go near my house and her dog doesn’t realize we’re the wrong sort of people. I hope so. Wrecking Safe Spaces is a public service. Or…I’m just being too paranoid. I do that you know.

 

Let’s see me being not too paranoid!

I was watching the local news this morning when they had a press conference with Sen Blumenthal (D-WBASTY) where he was innuendoing and lying about Mueller’s fishing expedition, Trump and Russia. I wasn’t sure why it was newsworthy, had they passed the coup-law about how Trump can’t fire Mueller, so I looked.

Blumenthal was on CNN Monday morning discussing Mueller’s investigation shortly before Trump began tweeting – though, unlike last time, Trump didn’t refer to Blumenthal as “Richie.”

Instead, he called him a “phony Vietnam con artist.”

It was a case of industrial strength butt-hurt. Trump noticed something funny.

Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!

Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal. He told stories about his Vietnam battles and….

…conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child. Now he judges collusion?

Now, I can’t be expected to keep track of every lie by every senator, I’m full up watching the whole GOP figure out how to keep lying to me, so I checked to see if Trump was going overboard.

“You know, all I can say is I regret it,” said Blumenthal, sitting jacketless on a folding chair in his Hartford campaign office. “I take full responsibility. And I am truly sorry to anyone who was hurt or offended or confused.”

Perhaps, but it needed to be noticed. All he regrets is getting caught. He Takes Full Responsibility!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but since there were no consequences, I’m not sure what taking responsibility meant. I mean, if he apologized and resigned, that would be one thing, but notice the “sorry if you’re butthurt” ‘apology’.

Notice also the Clinton playbook

He declined to detail what he and his staff did to check the public record before defiantly asserting the next day at a nationally televised press conference at a VFW, surrounded by supportive veterans, that his misstatements were rare and inadvertent, nothing more than mistakes. Days later, he apologized.

“I’m just not going to talk about it at this point, you know,” Blumenthal said. “I think I have asked and answered the questions that matter.”

 

Lie, when caught claim it was an honest error and then claim all the questions have been answered and let’s move on to The People’s Business!.

So once again, I’m probably in the minority in liking that Trump is fucking hard with the We’re Better And Smarter Than You set.

 

This is just ignorant.

A high-profile member of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria says she is quitting because a lack of political backing from the organisation’s Security Council has made the job impossible…

“I have no power as long as the Security Council does nothing. We are powerless, there is no justice for Syria.”

A UN Tribunal is not intended to actually bring anybody to justice, it’s designed to keep UNiks employed while Doing Something!!!!!!, jeez, how did she get that job if she didn’t understand that? I figured those gigs cost some sweet kickbacks that the commissioner would have to work hard to make up. Huh.

 

Don’t Forget People! Primary Season Is Just Around The Corner!

With a dysfunctional Congress on recess, House Speaker Paul Ryan has turned his focus back home, touring flood-damaged areas and visiting local businesses in Wisconsin. But he can’t escape the questions about why Republicans in charge of Washington aren’t delivering.

I have to wonder if electing Dems in the House wouldn’t be better.

For 2 years Congress does not a fucking thing but investigate Trump and the gov’t gets shut down every other week. We won’t be rid of Obamacare or reduce the deficit or any of that shit, but 2 years of Congress not doing a fucking thing is hard to argue against and  the GOP isn’t doing what they’re supposed to do anyway.

Wishful thinking from the AP

And though he’s won re-election easily for years, Ryan faces the prospect of challenges from left and right and an energized Democratic base in next year’s midterm elections.

Sure they’re energized, but they’re energized against Trump and the Dems, especially Bernie’s Bros, The Dems are not delivering anything but anger and lies, hate doesn’t win elections.

The chuckler

new polling numbers show the speaker is less popular among Republicans in Wisconsin than President Donald Trump.

They just don’t realize that they’re supposed to suck it up while Ryan serves his real base, DC.

 

Via Commonsense and Wonder, while talking about something else this one is about exposing the dragon.

A bowl of ice cream on a hot day in Shanghai gave American Mitchell Weinberg the worst bout of food poisoning he can recall. It also inspired the then-trade consultant to set up Inscatech — a global network of food spies.

In demand by multinational retailers and food producers, Inscatech and its agents scour supply chains around the world hunting for evidence of food industry fraud and malpractice. In the eight years since he founded the New York-based firm, Weinberg, 52, says China continues to be a key growth area for fraudsters as well as those developing technologies trying to counter them.

“Statistically we’re uncovering fraud about 70 percent of the time, but in China it’s very close to 100 percent,” he said. “It’s pervasive, it’s across food groups, and it’s anything you can possibly imagine.”

Chinese communism is crony capitalism except they can ritually murder an apparatchik when they get caught cutting too many corners.

 

Related, I was thinking the other day about China’s putative problems, they’re going to have excess old folks to take care of.

What comes out of this massive and detailed dossier is a tale of horror in which Mao emerges as one of the greatest mass murderers in history, responsible for the deaths of at least 45 million people between 1958 and 1962. It is not merely the extent of the catastrophe that dwarfs earlier estimates, but also the manner in which many people died: between two and three million victims were tortured to death or summarily killed, often for the slightest infraction. When a boy stole a handful of grain in a Hunan village, local boss Xiong Dechang forced his father to bury him alive. The father died of grief a few days later. The case of Wang Ziyou was reported to the central leadership: one of his ears was chopped off, his legs were tied with iron wire, a ten kilogram stone was dropped on his back and then he was branded with a sizzling tool – punishment for digging up a potato.

Murderous Chinese dictators have always thought of ‘their’ people as disposable.

I could see them raising the rice ration from 1/2 kilo to 3/8 kilo for workers, similarly raise it for pre-work children with none for people not working. Among the serf population I mean, probably not in the cities where media might have to notice.

This way people won’t have enough to spare any for starving grandpa and starving grandma, Walter Duranty’s heirs can collect their Pulitzers and in 5 years the problem is solved and they’re back to an excess of young males with not enough females.

If there’s one thing I know about murderous, Chinese, commie dictators is that they’re murderous and they’ll kill whichever of their people they need to keep things running the way they want. I also know our fine media betters will ignore this. Unless they kill off so many Apple workers that the date of the i Phone 10 is delayed.

 

So….. useless push-poll or sign that we’re far more boned than we’d hoped?

PBS, Public TV, NPR, the fucking Grauniad?!?!?!?!?!?!! are in the top 10 while the lying liars who anonymously fakenews at CNN and the Post?!?!?!?!!?!? are more trusted than Fox? Infowars more trusted than Breitbart?

Who did they poll? Missouri faculty and students?

 

Word of the Day: Stabulous!

 

 

There are some funny things going on as people keep clinging to willful ignorances even as reality attempts to reassert itself.

Never Trumpers at the Wash Examiner are perplexed by what should be obvious to one and all.

What in the world is Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinking?

What is she thinking? She’s thinking that the Dept of “Justice” will continue providing cover for the felonious behavior of Democrats as they’ve been doing for a long time now.

They discuss all the things minitrue and the Dems are trying to ignore about how bad a security breach Dem operatives presided over.

The hypocrisy of Democrats is stunning.

Their unwillingness to help law enforcement is even more so.

Ahhh, but the unwillingness of ‘law enforcement’ to ignore Dem felonyizing is anything but stunning, it’s so commonplace as to be banal.

The former DNC chairwoman’s behavior is not only disturbing, it is unbecoming of a member of Congress who was entrusted with great responsibilities. By knowingly permitting the IT provider to remain employed and place our national security at risk, Wasserman Schultz’s actions border on criminally negligent.

For that, the punishment against her must be swift.

So what’s their preferred “punishment”?

Fortunately, Congress has the process of censure at their disposal. Censure is a formal and public reprimand of a member “whose actions run counter to the group’s acceptable standards for individual behavior.” Wasserman Schultz’s actions certainly fit that description.

So…. throwing fish at us to get us to slap our fins together, arf and honk our squeezy bulbs.

Recall Charlie Rangel was “censured” for his felonies, how’d that work out?

Censure is a lot more relaxing than you’d think.

 

Willful Ignorance!

A story in Newsweek says the bulk of Chinese trade with North Korea involves just ten Chinese companies. The working assumption is that those ten companies are so “connected” and powerful that even the Chinese government can’t influence them, or might not want to try.

Fair enough. That makes the government of China common observers in this drama. Embarrassing for them.

It’s a commie country, that means that “connected” companies are tools of the State. The murderous commie dictators of China are not “embarrassed”, they’re laughing their asses off at stupid westerners who seem to think that this is anything but what the murderous commie dictators want to do.

Can we go to war with 10 companies? Idiocy. Pure and simple. That’s like being confused that even though the PLO talks peace they keep sending their children at Israelis strapped with remote-detonated ‘suicide’ belts.

 

Watch Trey Gowdy. Explode At The GOP For Refusing To Repeal Obamacare After 7 Years Of Promises!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

GOP voters device

Arf Arf Arf!

A reminder

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

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

Trey Gowdy is the cheerleader for… you guessed it!

Fuck em. I ain’t arfing until I see some prominent Dems in jail. Not fucking ‘censured’.

 

An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

This is how President Trump makes “The House of Cards” collapse. This is how President Trump ends Obamacare once and for all.

Executive Order #1: President Trump should issue an immediate Executive Order forcing every member of Congress to use the same healthcare plan as the rest of us. Let Senator McCain come off his high horse and live under the rules of Obamacare. Make every member of Congress live by same rules as the rest of us…

Except I’d include a provision that McCain has to go to the VA in Phoenix for his healthcare.

President Trump should issue an immediate Executive Order demanding disclosure of all financial interests and ownership in healthcare related companies or stock by every member of Congress- including all family members and offshore accounts. Failure to disclose will result in a long prison term.

Bwahahahhahahahhahahhahahhahahhaa. Beautiful, naive as the Dept. of “Justice” would be uninterested, but that’s Failure Theater I could get behind. It would further pull back the curtain.

The effect would be awesome. We’d see the politically connected suddenly be treated like the lumpen proletariat so they’d have to do something real instead of just symbolic. We’d see all our betters freak out and explain why Trump is a doody-head for making them live as they force us to and it would cement Trump’s popularity with the people who should matter, voters, but who don’t.

We’d also see the hilarity of minitrue freaking as they explain to Teh Peepul why Obamacare is so good for us and so bad for Important People!.

I do disagree with this.

P.S. Throw in a third plank. Term Limits. Limit each member of Congress to two terms. One term in office and one term in prison.

That should be in the Constitution. I blame James Madison for that.

 

Mike Huckabee, Mike fucking Huckabee, is the voice of reason!

 

One of the biggest reasons they gave for the 17th amendment was that many states were not appointing senators in a timely basis.

Be still my beating heart! How awesome would it be if say…Arizona had a problem with sending that fuckhead McCain and Mini-McCain, Jeff Flake, to the Senate.

 

While I agree with the headline, the body is a textbook example of attempting to insert willful ignorance into the mainstream.

Headline

El Paso Times Blames U.S. Government For Illegal Alien Deaths

Status: True! If we had some border and lack of governmental sanction of illegal immigration shit like that would happen far less often.

Body of the article.

Tens of thousands of migrants head to the United States in search of work each year, with many employers willing to hire them at a time of 4 percent unemployment in this country. But lack of political will has prevented the United States from creating any viable legal path to connect migrants and employers, increasing the power of the human smugglers in Mexico and Central America.

Status: False! You lying sacks of willful ignorance!

We have laws, we’re not enforcing them. As for the “4 percent unemployment”, as we’ve seen for a long time, that includes nearly 100 million people who have given up on getting a job.

But sure, let’s import a bunch of wogs to work cheap! Right minitrue? Them lawns ain’t gonna landscape themselves!

 

For those who haven’t been to the US side of Niagara Falls, there’s a reason people go to the Canadian side for vacation.

Niagara Falls State Park was packed with visitors around 4 p.m. Saturday when the foul-smelling, black discharge came billowing out into the Niagara River within sight of the base of the American Falls, alarming city businesses and tourists as it engulfed the shoreline from the Rainbow Bridge to the Maid of the Mist boat dock…

It turns out the discharge came from the Niagara Falls Waste Water Treatment Plant. The plant had the proper sewer discharge paperwork to release the volume of sewage and sediment that spewed into the river Saturday, according to the Niagara Falls Water Board.

Love Canal is in the town of Niagara Falls, all around the area are fenced off with warning signs

When I was 19 I hung out at Niagara University a lot, I grabbed a bunch of signs that said, “Warning! Area Of Chemical Contamination! Authorized Personnel Only!” I ran through some ‘wetlands’ to get them. Afterward, my Pumas were so white they were blue-tinged and my feet and socks were scoured clean.

NYS is uber corrupt and uber slimy, so as we see they okayed dumping sewage into the river. Because the power generation people are ‘Politically Powerful!’, or have deep pockets able to bribe slimy NY pols. Whichever formula you prefer, NYers are fucked.

 

This is cool, Roman Roads of Britain.

Suitable for framing. Guy’s selling posters if you’re interested.

 

It looks almost like DC’s Metro Map. I bet those roads blew up nearly as much as the DC Metro stations do so the comparison is apt. Apt! I say!

Get out your squeezy bulbs!!!!! We have more hearings!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

This leads us to just one question.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

Isn’t it early to be posturing? The important election is more than a year away, why throw this posturing pander until closer to the election? Oh wait, last week they were praising Trey Gowdy for keeping another Hearing!!!!! going for over a year, maybe they’re competing to see how long they can keep the proles riled up with Hearings!!!!!! and Committees!!!!!!!.

You know who isn’t going to investigate the behavior of the Dept. of “Justice” during the last election?

The Dept. of “Justice” that’s who. The only ones who could actually do any fucking good but would be investigating themselves. While they know who did what to whom, it’s because they’re the who and they’re still doing the what. The whom is us.

All we’re gonna get is fish in the face.

 

Totally not relatedly, we’re on day 1506 of the IRS ‘Scandal’ that nobody seems to be interested in.

Nonetheless, on March 22, 2016, in the case of United States v. NorCal Tea Party Patriots, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit disagreed with this interpretation and determined that tax exempt application information is not “return information,” and thus not protected from § 6103 disclosure. The Sixth Circuit’s ruling directly contravenes a previous District of Columbia Circuit ruling on the issue and is likely to expose attempts by the IRS to intervene in United States politics via the tax-exemption application process and 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(3). This Comment discusses the basics of §§ 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), the attempts by the IRS to engage in politics using § 501(c), the conflicting holdings and United States circuit courts’ various interpretations of § 6013 protection for the IRS, and the future implications of the circuit split created by the Sixth Circuit’s holding in NorCal. …

Wait, the IRS lost a court case! That’s never happened before!!!! That’ll change….abso fucking lutely nothing.

They’ve lost so many court cases and told the court to suck their balls that I just don’t see how the law-enforcement agency that’s been ignoring that is going to suddenly investigate themselves or anyone on ‘their’ team.

 

Speaking of our gov’t fucking us, I can’t believe I didn’t even expect this.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT QUIETLY HELPED AND REWARDED COMPANIES AND UNIVERSITIES WHICH HIRED ROUGHLY 330,000 CHEAP FOREIGN GRADUATES IN 2016 INSTEAD OF HIRING AMERICAN GRADUATES, MANY OF WHOM ARE DEEP IN DEBT.
The little-known “Optional Practical Training” program has grown from 91,140 new foreign job-seekers in 2009 to 329,158 new job-seekers in 2016, according to data provided by the Department of Homeland Security. That is almost a four-fold increase in seven years — and the program is growing even larger in 2017.

Once again, I was not paranoid enough. That’s happened to me more in the last 10 years than in the previous 40.

I can understand at least part of the reason for doing that, hiring angry race-studies majors is not a good idea, but surely there are a few hundred thousand qualified Americans out there they could have hired.

 

No for something totally unexpected!

You know, if I trusted these assholes I’d be more likely to…uhhh…trust them.

Among fans of the noir crime classic “Pulp Fiction,” there are some wild theories about what was inside the mystical briefcase that Marsellus Wallace dispatched his men to collect. The joke, of course, is on the audience. There’s something unthinkable in there, something that glows and hums, something perhaps supernatural … but we’ll never find out what.

As of this writing, a Senate Republican’s odds of guessing the contents of that briefcase are about as good as his odds of guessing what’s inside this famed Obamacare replacement plan.

No, not even Sen. Mike Lee, who was himself recruited into a working group that he and others thought would “be in charge of writing this bill,” has set eyes on the thing…

Recruiting Mike Lee was just another fish in my face, he’s being used. I hope that pisses him off. You know they knew better than to try that shit on Ted Cruz, he’s already called McConnell a lying bitch.

Repeal And Replace! is “fix”, so neither ‘repeal’ nor ‘replace’. As Obamacare is collapsing before our eyes, as more and more companies are opting out, these assholes are trying to keep the power. Any bill they use to Repeal And ReplaceTM will require vast influxes of our great grandchildren’s money.

At least we aren’t going to have to pay for it. Well, maybe with societal collapse, but at least taxes will be lower for a while. Until the warlords take over I guess. Since I’m hoping for that position myself, my taxes will still be low.

 

I agree!

‘It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans’ if Nancy Pelosi steps down, Trump says  5 Hours Ago | 00:54
President Donald Trump said he hopes House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi does not step down from her post.

In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” that aired on Friday, Trump said he would like Pelosi to stay right where she is because she has an “extraordinary record against her.”

“It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down. I would be very disappointed if she did,” Trump said.

Without Nancy using her charm to keep the Democrats in lockstep the GOP might have to actually explain why they’re not able to do what they’ve been elected to do.

 

Our fine minitrue betters are all upset.

“We have urged the White House not to replace on-camera briefings with ‘gaggles,’ not-for-broadcast question & answer sessions,” Mason said in a statement.

Yeah, nobody watches them anymore, they’re just a bunch of angry children whining at Spicer.

“We believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media, in keeping with the principles of the First Amendment and the need for transparency at the highest levels of government,”

That ship has sailed. You assholes are not “independent” except in the sense that you’re a herd of assholes who hate Trump. We just got done with the most transparent administration ever and you assholes ignored all the felonies they transparently committed. Pardon us if we don’t give shit one about you angry, Democrat, partisan ignoramuses.

 

Speaking of angry ignoramuses, Johnny Depp!

Johnny Depp: ‘When Was the Last Time an Actor Assassinated a President?’

That would be the last time a Republican angered Democrats by trying to get blacks out of their clutches.

It’s funny how the FBI declared that there was no way that guy was hunting Republicans, and of course, this is not a call to hunt the POTUS.

Cuz lefties are all tolerant, loving and mostly-peaceful.

Via my favorite light in the darkness.

 

Trump’s been about the best case scenario for me. I knew he’d do northeast GOP stuff, but I’d hoped he cut regulations and screw with all the idiots. Mission Accomplished.

I’d also hoped that, being the CEO type he is, he’d hire really good people and leave them alone to do their jobs.

Trump’s reliance on his generals shows that he values merit over politics.

Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation’s most accomplished generals to direct his national-security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H. R. McMaster (national-security adviser), and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security).

In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals — along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO — have already recalibrated America’s defenses.

I figure he told Tillerson and Mattis to have fun, just don’t launch nukes without letting him know first.

 

Shit for sale!

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials…

Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate.

Nobody’s buying. Especially after all the non-information ‘information’ we’ve been getting.

 

Cultural suicide is pretty sad.

The “interfaith” movement has reached an important milestone: a mosque has been constructed inside a church in Berlin. Everyone is excited and happy about this significant event, which allows people of all faiths to come together under one roof in peace and harmony and etc blah yak.

Inside their church? How about when an Orthodox priest can have mass in the Hagia Sophia?

I won’t want to laugh, but I might have to when a guy comes out of the mosque and blows himself up in the church.

 

I haven’t read the article, and I’m not gonna because I’ve read enough stupid shit today and, while this might not be stupid, it surely looks that way, but I love the headline.

BRITAIN ORDERS IMMEDIATE PROBE INTO FRIDGE THAT STARTED DEADLY BLAZE

That headline epitomizes Akbar Britain in a way that nothing I write could. Like when they investigate people who say bad things about Muslims instead of investigating the Muslims who keep murdering their subjects.

 

Let’s Chicago! It’s like Venezuela except with fewer cops.

Remember when we had citywide units? A few hundred cops that the Department could call out for situations exactly like this? This event isn’t a secret – it’s been going on for years. Units like the old Task Force morphed into Gangs morphed into Special Operations, Targeted Response or Mobile Strike Force. Three-hundred cops who could have days off canceled at a moment’s notice along with District Gang/Tact teams gave the Department a force of 500 or so to deal something like this ..

Now CPD has 25 cars show up? For a crowd numbering 1,000? A crowd that’s been drinking and smoking all night without any interference from authorities? With (we’re betting) a few hundred guns? And nothing has been done for years? In a city that has abandoned the rule of law? What exactly are the police supposed to do?

That can’t end well. Rahm does not understand how to run a crime family like Chicago. He’s spending far too much of their money paying off his buddies while screwing over the city.

He’ll leave soon and everybody will say he failed but he will have siphoned off $billions for himself and his friends. The misery he leaves behind is not his concern. It’s a hallmark of Clintons and their istas after all.

 

Paying attention to reality is not our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters’ forte.

…three Little League baseball games on the West Side during an event this week meant to build connections between two Chicago neighborhoods that grapple with violence.

 

So how did those games go? See those first ellipses?

Gunfire interrupted three Little League baseball games…

Yeah, about how anybody with a clue would expect. I am a little surprised they didn’t beat on each other using the bats.

Sorry, I forgot the score.

at least nine shots were fired around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday. No one was hit, but the fields were cleared.

A shutout! It’s not often Chicago gets a shutout. In gangland, that’s the opposite of a pitcher’s duel. You’d think after last year’s World Series of murder victory they’d be better but that’s what happens when you get cocky.

 

Is there such a word as “de-teaching“?

 

If not, that math ‘teacher’ just made it up.

Imagine the poor kid trying to explain that each cut will take 10 minutes with the teacher condescendingly explaining that each piece takes 5 minutes.

Via David Thompson’s Friday Ephemera, I usually click every link and I don’t click links for just about anybody else.

 

Yesterday I posted this picture, as I looked at it I kept thinking that maybe it was p-shopped.

 but now I see that it wasn’t.

That, my friends, is the Prime Minister of Canada.

The one who would have to stand up to Tsar Putin I over territory in the Arctic.

I had a chuckler to end on but really, it would be anti-climactic. I’ll save it for a less funny day.

Memo leaking all your lies all the day
If I listened to your lies would you say

Let’s Fakenews!

Forget Russia, CNN is stuck in Siberia.

Reporter Jim Acosta made note of the fact that his network was relegated to the “Siberia” section of the Rose Garden during President Trump’s press conference with Romanian president Klaus Iohannis Friday, quickly adding, “no pun intended.”

“The question has be to be raised whether or not this White House was retaliating against CNN,” Acosta later told Wolf Blitzer during an on-air crosstalk.

Has Trump not been clear? Yes it’s retaliation for all your lies and fakenews bullshit.

An(sic) in January,  he refused to take a question from Acosta during his press conference, berating CNN for being “fake news.”

I can imagine the “Don’t You Know Who I Am!?  Yes, that’s why you’re being treated as the lying fakenewsers you are.” conversation.

Oh man the butthurt must have been epic.

 

More Minitrue!

Republicans are trying to figure out a way past swirling questions about ties between the Trump administration and the Russian government, with GOP strategists calling the investigation and surrounding controversies a public relations nightmare that has dragged on for too long.

Former FBI Director James Comey did not inflict any deadly blows against President Trump when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Republicans believe, but they’re concerned there will be more damaging revelations in the weeks ahead.

So…we saw Comey pretty much exonerate Trump, admit to a crime and accuse the former head of the Dept. of “Justice” with obstruction of justice and the GOP IS IN TROUBLE!

I actually agree, they were counting on Comey getting Trump. Now that’s fizzled they’re going to have to figure out some other way to impeach him.

 

Speaking of impeachment, I agree that the Diet of Worms…. Paris climate accord was part of an impeachable offense, I just don’t think it was Trump who committed the offense.

A liberal law professor wrote a lengthy op-ed claiming President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord is a “crime against humanity” that is an “impeachable offense.”

Obama committing America to a foreign treaty without submitting it to the Senate was an impeachable offense.

Too bad the GOP wasn’t interested in actually opposing him.

 

So the revelation that Lynch obstructed justice (which we already knew) is unimportant but Sessions, on the other hand, is Guilty Of Felony Obstruction Of Even More Justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

…Attorney General Jeff Sessions was going to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. It would be a change of plans since Sessions was scheduled for a public hearing in front of the Senate Budget Committee, where he was expected to be pelted with Russia questions. It’s the Intelligence Committee that is handling the Senate’s Russia investigation, but according to CNN’s John King on Inside Politics, a private hearing could be an “obstruction of justice.”

Obstruction of justice because he’s going to testify about an intelligence matter before the intelligence committee instead of before the budget committee.

Minitrue is going fucking insane and they’re taking the rest of the Democratic party with them.

They’re hilarious. It’s a little infuriating watching people pretend they’re not insane, hate-filled, spittle-flecked partisans, but that’s getting harder and harder to do.

 

Not much else domestically is happening apparently, our own little anti-fa thuggles did get their violence on over a display of free speech.

In Texas, they tried to get everybody riled up to take down anything honoring Sam Houston.

But a funny thing happened on the way to messing with Texas.

People in support of the monument showed up with signs and flags, including confederate flags. (and well armed V)

However, Texas Antifa and others who are protesting against the monument did not show up for Saturday’s scheduled protest.

I’m gonna guess the thuggles got a couple blocks away, saw this

and said, Fuck that. Let’s go kick some old ladies.

They don’t do so well when ambushing older men,

so I figure they should look for women over 80 with walkers.

 

Well, the terrorist was honored in the parade and rode on a float with a pol.

Controversial onetime convicted terror leader Oscar Lopez Rivera may have declined the Puerto Rican Day Parade’s “National Freedom Award,” but he was still at the head of the event Sunday — with the City Council speaker right by his side.

Lopez Rivera — who did 35 years behind bars for his ties to the Puerto Rican terror group FALN…

Bravo NY! That’s the way to stand up to terrorists!

Notice the last bit I cut n pasted.

This terrorist was released because Obama pardoned him. Why leave that out? I know NYC has lots of Puerto Ricans but, as we see in the middle east, all terrorists are bad, not just other people’s.

Also notice the lie, he was not put behind bars “for his ties to..FALN”, he was put behind bars for 

found Mr. Lopez-Rivera guilty on five counts involving seditious conspiracy, armed robbery, weapons violations and interstate transportation of stolen property. He faces a maximum penalty of 70 years in prison…

Oh, and there’s more!

In 1981, López Rivera was sentenced to 55 years in prison for “seditious conspiracy” and other felonies.(shhhhh V) He was later sentenced to an additional 15 years in 1988 for conspiracy to escape; to transport explosives with intent to kill and injure people; and to destroy government buildings and property.(conspiracy to blow shit up V)

His ‘ties to FALN” were as a bomb-making trainer. They blew up more than 100 bombs in America.

The NY Post is weird, they’re often sympathetic to the right, but they’re ridiculous never-Trumpers and this shit is just fucked up. Why lie for a terrorist?

 

Speaking of terrorism, let’s look at all the Islamophobes in Turin.

Now I know how to get to the head of any line, just have a friend yell “Allahu Akbar!” and the way will clear itself. That’s better than having my chauffeur hold a sign saying, “Bruce Springsteen.” Mostly cuz I have friends..well, I know some people who would think it was hilarious to do that and I don’t have a chauffeur.

 

The Arabian peninsula is heating up and it’s very confusing. Whenever they talk about the Muslim Brotherhood, they mean Iran.

This article in a Ukrainian paper is interesting.

Qatar crisis has emerged because competition for regional leadership arose between this country and Saudi Arabia…

Qatar has long abandoned its policy of agreeing its foreign and internal interests with those of Saudi Arabia and acts as an independent player.

Besides, there had been complaints about Qatar’s position on the part of other Arab states, primarily Egypt, which has long branded Qatar as a source of instability for the nation. In addition, Qatar is being criticized for its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and other organizations considered as a serious threat. Therefore, countries that are somehow tied to Saudi Arabia have quickly responded to Riyadh’s move to sever diplomatic relations with Doha.

 

That’s an interesting deal. Iran’s winning Syria and bringing chaos to the Arabian peninsula but ISIS just blowed up Iran. They’ve made their rug, they can pray on it.

There is an obligatory shot at Trump, but I’d say that, interestingly enough, some people in the world besides Republican-Americans have free will. I know, it seems as if everybody responds to what I say and do, but some people out there don’t even know I exist or care what I think or say!?!?!?!?!?!

Besides the GOP I mean.

 

Pakistan seems to have decided to get involved in the Iran/Saudi war.

Pakistan’s former army chief, Raheel Sharif, is set to become the first commander of a new Saudi-led counterterrorism coalition of mostly Sunni Islamic states, a move frustrating neighboring Shi’ite Iran in addition to prevailing domestic opposition and criticism…

 

I figure they’ll get busy in Yemen, which is sorta funny.

Yemen used to just have a shitload of Saudi-type terrorists who’ve hated each other since long before one group worked for the Romans and the other worked for Persians, now the Persians are getting involved again and it’s going to be interesting. I wonder if the Mad Mullahs are using the same tribes the Sassanids did against the Roman auxiliaries.

There is one large bit of endy with the sorta funny.

Iran’s ambassador to Pakistan, Mehdi Hunar Dost, said this week his government has repeatedly conveyed its concerns to Pakistani leaders over their decision to participate in the Saudi-led military coalition. He cautioned the move could hurt bilateral relations, which are already shaky over allegations anti-Iran Sunni militants use Pakistani soil for attacks on the Iranian side.

Iran and Pakistan share a nearly 1,000-kilometer border.

Will they cut out the middle (man) east and just nuke each other?
I wonder if we could get Afghanistan involved in that. Kill three jihadibirds with one stone.

 

They tried to hide it for a couple years, but last month it became official.

Sharif, 60, retired as Pakistan’s chief of army staff last fall. COAS is the most powerful post there is in Pakistan and the de facto finger on the nuclear trigger. The highlight of his tenure in office was a major crackdown on the Pakistani Taliban, which has plagued the country with horrific terror attacks. The Pakistan army continues to support other terrorist organizations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Haqqani network, but it is at war with the Pakistani Taliban and now with the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) that has created an infrastructure in the country.

They found some ‘bad’ terrorists.

The Saudi-led Islamic military alliance now has 41 members. Some Saudi commentators have argued that Pakistan was best prepared to provide a commander for the group because it is the only Muslim country with nuclear weapons. In fact, Pakistan has the fastest growing nuclear arsenal in the world. A military leader who has commanded a nuclear strike force does have credentials unlike any other Muslim general. There is an obvious implication—left unstated of course—about where the alliance could go if it needs a bomb.

Yeah, it’s only unstated because our fine leftist betters would like to wish it away.

 

This is what we’re looking at when Iran gets close to finishing their bomb. Well, that or when the ones they have on back-order with the Russians are delivered.

Saudi defence minister Mohammad bin Salman visited Pakistan on Sunday, when the chief of Pakistan’s army issued a statement backing the kingdom, the Asia Times reported.

General Raheel Sharif said “tany threat to Saudi Arabia’s territorial integrity would evoke a strong response from Pakistan.”

Pakistan wants to be a player in the Islamic world, should be interesting to see if they succeed in that or just succeed in getting sucked into a nukular war with Iran.

 

Speaking of jihadis, the Jawas say, Oxford Jihad Goes Terribly Right

And right it is!

‘I want to see my mum’: British Muslim convert ‘ISIS fighter’ Jihadi Jack begs to be released from Syrian jail so he can ‘explain some things’ to his parents

A former Oxford schoolboy who converted to Islam and traveled to Syria is begging to be released so he can ‘explain some things’ to his mum.

Jack Letts is being held by the Kurdish militia in Syria after traveling to the country – and admits he has ‘no idea’ what will happen to him next…

 

Jack Letts converted to Islam as a teenager when he he attended the Cherwell School in Oxford…

 

With this that could be John Walker Lindh

Speaking to MailOnline, one friend – who asked to remain anonymous – said: ‘He was always an atheist, pretty liberal, typical middle class kid. At school he was the class clown but didn’t take it too far, he was still smart and got fair grades.’

People want to believe in something, that’s why we have the Great Global Worming religion and lefties becoming jihadis.

Too bad we don’t have a belief system that preaches love and tolerance and respect for each other. Oh well.

 

An aside, while it cracked me up, that post sorta pisses me off too.

Last night I was reading something and the narrator said, “It went horribly wrong” and I thought, No, it went horribly right! I was planning on using that line today. I even had a link picked out for it. Now I can’t. Bastids.

 

Speaking of the Great Global Worming Religion, The End Of Snow seems to include a heck of a lot of snow.

Via weather.com and NOAA:

Several inches of snow are possible in parts of the Cascades and northern Rockies starting this weekend. Snow levels could fall to as low as 5,000 feet by Sunday. Campers in this region should prepare for cold temperatures. Snow is in the forecast starting this second weekend of June in the higher elevations of the mountain West, as an unseasonably cold air mass infiltrates the northwestern United States. The cold air will build in beneath a strong southward dip in the jet stream, or upper-level trough, that will develop this weekend as a result of a weather pattern flip.

Surprise!

I checked some others and they’re predicting snow but I can’t find out if it did snow so it probably didn’t. This weekend.

I hadn’t heard about this though.

Corrections & Clarifications: A previous version of this story misstated how long it had been since the June snowpack was this large. The amount of snow on the ground in the central Sierra region this week marked the biggest June snowpack in years.

I guess they tried to lie their way through it the first time. They always pretend any hot weather is UNPRECEDENTED!!!!!!!!!!!!! while snow in June is a big ‘Yawn”. At least they put the correction at the top of the page instead of the bottom. I wonder if it’s in print and if they’ll correct that in the next issue. That’s what a real newspaper would do, but we don’t have any of those anymore.

Snow from the barrage of storms that pounded the western mountains over the winter is still on the ground. Many mountains in the Rockies, Sierra and Cascades are packed with at least 8 feet of snow, the National Weather Service said, creating a dream summer for skiers and snowboarders.

It’s funny how that’s mostly ignored and yet, we’re supposed to have  heat wave elsewhere so we’ll see all the global warmmongering about a heat wave in June but snow in June is ignored.

Notice there’s 8 feet, I wonder, is that the beginning of a new glacier?

If glaciers start covering California and they start blaming it on global warming, we really need to try to get the ‘narrative’ being that we need to congratulate CA for beating that whole Climate Change thing.

 

Fucking moronpundit, he said he was going to be back but he isn’t. He talked a big game about facecocks, but I haven’t seen shit. In the interests of luring him back, a nother pic of Hillary suitable for facecocking!

Comey’s been begging for a facecocking!

Damn sockpuppets. Lazy bastids.

IMPORTANT, ABOVE THE POST, UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

COMEY!

Now back to our post.

Comey comey comey, comey….comey! Comey comey, comey comey. Comey; “Comey” comey.

Comey.

First, a lie.

Ex-FBI director James Comey said Thursday that he didn’t call for an independent counsel to probe Hillary Clinton’s private email server because there was no evidence that any crime had been committed.

Yeah see, you said she broke the law but didn’t mean to, so no harm no foul. So you’re lying.

Also notice that he saw that Lynch and Hillary were working together to subvert the rule of law and yet, he and all of Minitrue are throwing innuendo at Trump.

Also…. he said he leaked a memo (not the memo, he told a ‘journalist’ what it said), because of what Trump said.

So…. he’ll leak against Trump but exonerate a crook for Obama.

Comey!

This Is CNN!

Read the responses, they’re pretty much all pointing out CNN is a bunch of lying liars who fake news.

Which led to this.

CNN has corrected a Tuesday report after the release of former FBI Director James Comey’s opening statement for his Thursday testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee contradicted the report’s sources.

Aww, poor fakenewsers. It’s not so easy to fake news when the rest of the world doesn’t go along.

 

Awesome.

President Trump is winning on one key campaign promise, cutting regulations and virtually eliminating the release of new ones.

In fact, he has cut the output of costly regulations so deeply that a group that charts the federal government’s output of rules has called the shift “historic.”

He can’t do the GOP’s job and they’re certainly not going to, but he can undo Obama’s lawbreaking/lawmaking ‘pen and phone’ shit.

 

At S Fist we see this story.

A UC Berkeley student who says she was violently attacked by protesters on campus the night of a planned speech by Milo Yiannopoulos in February is now suing the university — along with a host of others including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — for withholding police protection and allowing attacks like the one she suffered

Sue them senseless.

Well, except for Nancy Pelosi, sue her sensible. She certainly cannot get anymore senseless. But we do know the mayor is a member of one of the violent fascist groups so she has a darn good case.

Via the King of France.

 

Important Update to yesterday’s post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A mea wronga.

Yesterday I wrote

I bet if he runs against Trump in 2020 most of the GOP’s Senate contingent will Be For Biden!.

Today we see

“Biden will be interviewed by Romney during a Friday evening event in Park City, Utah, at the invitation-only summit, according to a Biden spokesman and participants briefed on the schedule. The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

So much of the GOPers in the Senate and a huge swathe of the GOPers in the House, including the leadership, are already planning Joe Biden’s 2020 run against Trump. I figured the House assholes would keep it on the downlow.

That should raise Trump’s victory by at least 2 points. How often does the same crew work for both candidates in an election?

 

 

Nother Update. I stopped writing this story a few years ago but it’s still a good reminder.

I have been following sunspot numbers for many years now. And while sunspot numbers have been decreasing steadily for several cycles to date, the current dearth is very unusual — especially for this point in the cycle — and, to quote my favorite Vulcan, “Fascinating.” I am definitely continuing to keep an eye on the activity, or rather lack thereof. For those of you who may not be familiar with my background, I am an astrophysicist turned rocket scientist turned author; my graduate work was in spotted variable star astronomy. This IS my principal field of expertise.

Yeah, we’ve been watching that since about 2002 or so, This is from 6/2006.

2 sunspots.

Now today we see

Yeah, the Sun just keeps not cooperating.

 

For those who are unclear on the term Vicious Cycle

Quincy-based Ermont Inc. has been selling cannabis-infused pizza for about three weeks to rave reviews.

Your munchies will give you the munchies.

 

“Reality” is winning on points, but sooner or later reality will stage a comeback. Sorta like how it took a few decades before the reality that the Roman Empire had fallen was obvious to everybody.

First, I’m gonna disagree on this.

 

That’s not irony, that’s reality. Socialism always costs more than free enterprise. It’s just axiomatic.

The comment are funny too. Some people get very upset when you make fun of their religion.

 

Why didn’t we hear about this until now?

A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.

And what happened to that issue?

The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,”

Buried. Notice they were “outside the retention time”. In other words, the FBI worded the subpoenas so narrowly that anything not from a certain window (probably 2/1/15 3pm-2/1/15 3:05PM would be my guess) so that they could ignore what they found.

Lest we forget, the DO”J” is full of a bunch of lawless assholes and they made the FBI into Hillary’s Bitches.

 

Some people just refuse to accept reality.

Obamacare overhaul similarly fails, no honest analyst will be able to blame conservatives. Blame will belong wholly to centrist Republicans…

In every election campaign since 2010, every Republican has pledged to repeal Obamacare. Since Republicans rode that promise to a House majority that year, the House has voted more than 90 times for repeal (symbolic votes, all, under President Barack Obama). Now the Freedom Caucus has announced its support for an amended repeal bill, Republicans are closer than ever to finally delivering on their promise. It relies only on centrists to rejoin their party on this crucial issue for which the voters put them in office.

“Centrists” are just members in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. They do not want to lose the power over us that Obamacare gives them. If they don’t control our lives, they cannot demand bribes and kickbacks on how they dole out our rights.

The GOP has lied to us. It’s much harder to keep Obamacare going than to get rid of it. So they’re busy making sure it does not go away.

Our best hope is the GOP fucks us again so Trump just undoes all the memoes, phone calls and executive orders Obama did to keep it from imploding.

 

I watched Shep for a few minutes the other day, he was talking about Venezuela and he acted as if the protestors were getting violent. He showed them in Gas Masks!!!!!!!!! but he called them, “Masks”, as in, “Protestors wearing masks!!!!!!” and then a few images of violent protestors building barricades.

Then he showed gov’t folks shooting tear gas into the crowds. Shep did not notice or mention that maybe, just fucking maybe Shep you leftist piece of shit, the protestors were wearing those “masks” because the murderous forces of the murderous dictator/nee secret policeman were murdering protestors!

Repression in Caracas on Wednesday was probably the worst in three weeks of protests. While usually satisfied with choking us but allowing us some margin of movement, this time they used enough tear gas to make us reconsider coming back, or prevent a gathering altogether.

Yesterday, Juan Pablo Pernalete Llovera, a 20-year old student, was murdered. A tear gas canister hit him in the chest as he protested in Altamira and, sadly, he arrived at Salud Chacao with no vital signs.

Nah. To the piece of shit leftists in Minitrue (hey Shep!), the forces of a socialist gov’t are ‘good’, protestors against them are ‘bad’.

When they don’t ignore it. Venezuela is exploding and it was blatantly obvious that it was going to happen to everyone except our Elites!, cuz they’re idiots.

 

Mister We Could Use A Man Like Phillip Of Macedon Again!

Protesters have stormed the parliament of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats in a bid to stop the formation of a new government.

See, they’re thinking.

I wonder how long until that happens here and how Minitrue will blame me when it’s masked leftists doing it. Most righties will just ignore them. There is no rule of law, why pretend we still have it and act as if Congress is important? Only our imperial judiciary and Trump matter right now. Congress has spent the last decades abdicating their responsibilities, ever since Clinton’s impeachment when they realized the media was more powerful.

 

Okay, I don’t know French attitudes, but this makes me laugh. Macron is the far leftist left in the race against the FAR RIGHT HATER!!!!! LePen.

 

“In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland,” Macron told reporters of several regional French newspapers including Ouest-France. “You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.”
Macron’s comment indicates the staunchly pro-EU candidate, who promises to reassert France’s leading position within the bloc and play an integral role in shaping its future, will actively enforce the bloc’s democratic liberal values at a time when EU leaders are faced with reshaping and shoring up solidarity within the union pre-Brexit.

That’s probably a winner, the EU was supposed to be a way for France to rule Europe, they can’t allow them lowlife Poles and Hungarians to think they control their countries!

Recall, the Hungarians are not allowing Muslim refugees in their country. They even respond to violence with violence! All right thinking people know that you don’t counter violence with violence! You figure out how you angered the poor-downtrodden people and appease them. Unless they’re not an approved lefty group, then you crush them.

 

Okay, I’d say this is a loser.

The National Front’s history of anti-Semitism intruded on the French election campaign again on Friday as polls suggested front-runner Emmanuel Macron’s 20-point lead may be narrowing a touch.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right party forced acting president Jean-Francois Jalkh to step aside after comments from 17 years ago questioning the Holocaust resurfaced in the French media,

If there’s one thing most French don’t care about it’s who hates the people from That Shitty Little Country. It is pretty funny that the lefties who hate Jews as much as most Arabs are acting all, “Oooh, look at the anti-Semitism!”

 

Speaking of Nazis, I think I found the original maker of Billy Bier.

once was an actual Hitler of shithead relatives — and no, not that one, either. In a quirky twist of fate, the Universe saddled even that goose-stepping genocidal maniac with a slimy, opportunistic, clingy black sheep to ruin his Christmases: Adolf’s “loathsome nephew,” Willy Hitler…

On the strength of his last name alone, Willy gained access to all the parties, women, and cocktail shrimp Berlin had to offer. It was wild. Gaggles of Hitler groupies lined up for the chance to get their Aryan mitts on Willy’s little willy. On the family side, however, things weren’t going too great. Dissatisfied with his crappy job at the bank, Willy asked Uncle Adolf to help him get a better grip on those evil coattails of his. It was around this time that the fuhrer starting referring to Willy as “my loathsome nephew” and accusing him of trying to “climb on my back.”

Sounds like a cross between Billy Carter and Roger Clinton.

 

This is fucked up. I’m not sure who the players are, I do know the TWP are white nationalists but I don’t know anything else about them and I’m not sure if Anti-fa are involved or just mentioned later on. Since the organizers for the rally are all Dems, I’m gonna guess they’re not anti-fascist, just anti-other-people’s-fascists. Like in Iraq how Sunnis liked Sunni terrorists and Shiites liked Shiite terrorists.

Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.

In a statement posted to the group’s Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.

In the statement, she said “unforeseen credible threats” forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.

I do have high hopes for this though.

“The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict.

Now if we could just get the Westoro Baptist FreakShow to get involved we could have some guilt-free violence to watch. Watching nazis beat fascists is hilarious.

 

Has anybody heard about this?

An American paramedic working with a security watchdog in eastern Ukraine has been killed after the vehicle he was in drove over a mine.

The US citizen, who has not been named, was part of a patrol involved in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Special Monitoring mission in the country.

Two other monitors, a German and a Czech, were injured in the blast, near Luhansk. It has led US officials to call for a ‘full, transparent investigation’.

 

Why haven’t we heard of an American being killed by Tsar Putin I’s cossacks?

But since signing deal the sides appear stuck in a stalemate broken periodically by sharp resurgences of fighting that Kiev and the Kremlin accuse each other of instigating.

Tillerson told Poroshenko that although Washington wanted better ties with Moscow, ‘Russia´s actions in eastern Ukraine remain an obstacle’.

On Monday Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, also called for an investigation to be conducted into the explosion.

Oh, the Russians are going to investigate!

We could lend them some of our crack FBI agents from the Hillary Task Force!!!!, they’re good at covering up crimes.

 

Canada is getting a look at the reality that is their place in the world.

Nobody’s going to invade Canada unless they’re already at war with us, but Canada cannot project power and Russia wants the oil under Arctic ice that Canada wants.

Guess who’s most likely going to get it?

Russia unveils its newest Arctic base

Russia has unveiled a new military base as part of its buildup in the Arctic region, and has provided a tour — albeit a virtual one on your computer.

The tsar willing to go to war to get it. Canada surely isn’t.

Funny, what with their problems with illegal immigration and now a warlike neighbor, they could use a Trump. But they have a Kelso.

 

The reality of the state of politics in America.

A two-bit political gadfly named Thomas Lopez-Pierre has been running for City Council on an outrageous platform that calls for stopping “greedy Jewish landlords” from committing “ethnic cleansing” against blacks.

Yawn. Typical Democrat so far.

as Jewish groups and leaders demanded he be booted out of the Democratic Party.

Wait, why? Isn’t that the official Democrat Party Platform? Black Lives Matter, not zionist lives.

Here’s where I wonder if he’s planning on joining the GOP.

In the midst of this firestorm a GoFundMe called “Stop Thomas Lopez-Pierre Hate Campaign” suddenly popped up and was so successful, it raised $5,781.

But anyone who donated hoping to actually stop Lopez-Pierre is going to be sorely disappointed — because the page was created by the candidate himself to scam money from his foes.

“I call it bait and switch,” Lopez-Pierre actually bragged to The Post.

“I intend to use the money to pay for my marketing expenses. The people who are doing this [donating] oppose me. I thank them for their support.”

How is that different from winning election after election and raking in $millions in donations precisely to repeal Obamacare and then not repealing Obamacare? How about how they boned us on illegal immigration?

So a Dem platform with GOP tactics. A Centrist!

 

I’m all for this.

And now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has examined what happens to the data that’s collected from students using technology in the classroom. They released the results of an extensive survey covering students in grades K-12.

What they found was that little work has been done to protect the privacy of the student information that is collected from both the classroom and from using the online software the schools issue for use at home on the students’ own devices. They found that while many school districts have embraced technology and all of the benefits it can bring to the schools and students, often little thought has been given to one of the unintended consequences of this: the students’ privacy.

School is for learning. Let them learn what their betters think of them. Right now, they seem to think our fine betters give a shit about them. That’s a dangerous belief. Our betters only care about our voting for them, sending them money and shutting the fuck up.

 

Speaking of schools and learning, is Duke actually going to stop going all in on social justice and SCIENCE!!!!!! and actually do some science?

We have another study from Duke University that shows groundwater isn’t being polluted by fracking, despite the cries from the environmentalists that the process, which is used to tap into natural gas resources. It’s been the crux of their narrative against this sector of the economy that’s rapidly growing throughout the country. The study was three years in the making, peer reviewed, and was recently published in the European journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

 

Heretics! Burn them! They do have to state the obvious to try to keep up their SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!! cred.

They did say that surface water might be impacted due to spills:

So what you’re saying is that spilling oil on the ground means there will be oil on the ground and it could run into waterways that go through the ground? The deuce you say!

 

Macauley Culkins parents are the scum of the Earth and should be jailed, at least, for what they did to their kid.

If, like so many pop fans, you have always yearned to see a three-minute music video that brings together Bill Clinton, Garfield’s cartoon owner Jon Arbuckle and a Viagra-taking George Washington wearing a virtual reality headset, then your agonizing wait is finally over…

The video features the founding father apparently pleasuring himself to the vision of Kurt Cobain—played by Macaulay Culkin—being whipped, nailed to a cross and declared “King of the Cucks.”

 

Poor bastid. First his parents took all his money and then they sold him to Michael Jackson. So sad.

 

Road Trip?

Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva.

More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland…

Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.

Michael Starrett, Heritage Council Chief Executive, said: ‘HeritageMaps.ie a fantastic tool for learning, discussion and interpretation, making cultural data available to everyone.

Vulvoyage!

 

At least, unlike the Mona Lisa, we know why she’s smiling.

 

Sometimes things that seem so brilliant are the opposite.

Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him.

That epitomizes the sentiment most people have had, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

 

I did this with a 72 Chevelle Malibu and a dumpster instead of a bicycle and a wall.

The girl bending over into her car turned around just as I hit the dumpster at about 5mph. I didn’t get her number.

So where are we?

Not in a good place.

The State Religion has taken over in California.

The Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra of California has invented a new crime: Performing Undercover Video Journalism While Not a Democrat.

Of course, he didn’t call it that. Nor did his predecessor, now U.S. Senator Kamala Harris,(emphasis me V) when she launched an investigation of the undercover video operation to expose alleged fetal body part sales by Planned Parenthood.

That investigation resulted in 15 felony charges that were just announced, as we covered the other day, California’s AG Charges Undercover Reporters Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Baby Part Selling.

For the most part, the mainstream media that uses similar undercover video tactics — which is how 60 Minutes made its name…

Some news outlets, like the LA Times and the Wall Street Journal are covering it, and Mother Jones, but nobody else seems to be very interested in this example of  using the state to go after social enemies (not political).

The NY Times ‘covers’ the story.

Like this defense of Planned Parenthood/explaining away any stupid implications that 15 felonies was a problem.

They claimed to have gathered evidence that abortion providers and others were selling tissue from aborted fetuses for profit, which is illegal, but subsequent investigations failed to find evidence of that.

You know, except they did. The de rigeur, “Deceptively Edited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Critics said Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt, who were working for the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group that was previously obscure, had deceptively edited the videos and misrepresented what they showed.

You don’t need to see the vids, you see, they were deceptively edited! So when the PP person said, “We’re going to sell you body parts.” it obviously does not prove they were going to sell body parts. So there.

Are there first amendment concerns?

The defendants have said they were acting as journalists, but even if a court accepts that argument, it may not matter in this case.

They’re not journalists! Journalists can do things others can’t. It says so right there in the commerce cl…first amendment!

Eavesdropping laws apply to journalists, too. And while the activists may claim a right of free speech or free press to publish the videos, the charges are about collection, not publication.

When 60 Minutes is arrested for the same thing, I look forward to the same response.

Sorry, we all know 60 Minutes peeps will not fall afoul of the law because they only go after the left’s enemies and the NY Times would freak the fuck out if whoever’s on 60 Minutes these days were actually arrested.

This story has the same script, no sense quoting it.

Here we have the Secret Evidence the Hoi Polloi Cannot See!

A federal appeals court on Wednesday barred the release of videos made by an anti-abortion group whose leaders are facing felony charges in California accusing them of recording people without permission in violation of state law.

They don’t have a problem with that.

“There’s no denying that the smear campaign launched by the defendants has put abortion providers at risk, and we are grateful that the Ninth Circuit affirmed our preliminary injunction,” said Vicki Saporta, National Abortion Federation president and CEO.

We needed a quote from the National Abortion Federation president and CEO to explain that this was wrong!

Oh, and there’s a National Abortion Federation. With a president and CEO. That’s sorta horrific.

I didn’t know this, but it’s fucking funny.

Daleiden and Merritt had been indicted in Texas, but all of the charges were dropped as prosecutors said a grand jury had overstepped its authority. The grand jury had been convened to investigate Planned Parenthood, but after finding no wrongdoing it indicted Daleiden and Merritt instead.

Okay then.  These people selling pieces of dead babies are okay but the ones showing it are enemies of the state.

I was going to look at other news “agencies” but really, at this point what difference does it make? They’re not going to cover this. It’s a regional issue and not for national consumption.

Now let’s look at this video of a fireman in West Bumfuck saving a kitten!

 

Coupla puppy blender links.

Tillerson and Turkey disagree on strategery in Syria.

Washington and Ankara disagree sharply over how to wage war against Islamic State militants in Syria, with the U.S. backing Kurdish militias whom the Turks disdain as terrorists.

Tillerson, dealing in the world of international oil dealings, probably likes the Kurds more than anybody else he’s had to deal with so I doubt Turkey’s problems with someone they’d like to Armenian are going to affect him all that much.

Which means that Tillerson could get with Russia to handle Turkey to cut down on terrorists in the area, but our fine media betters attack on whatever they’re saying Russia did today will make that harder.

Yay Minitrue! From ‘reporting’ on Abu Ghraib every day for a year to accusing Russia of interfering with our election, Minitrue surely knows how to hurt America for the sin of not electing Democrats.

 

Speaking of the bullshit Russia deal and punishing America, the Senate is uninterested in getting the story.

A senior congressional official with direct knowledge said Flynn’s lawyer was told it was “wildly preliminary” and that immunity was “not on the table” at the moment. A second source said the committee communicated that it is “not receptive” to Flynn’s request “at this time.”

I usually try to ignore what’s “going to happen”, but this feels right.

CNN has been non-stop Flynn for months, this gives our fine media betters a chance to continue their attacks on Trump. The We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is not going to give up that club easily.

 

More Russia.

Obama administration officials were so concerned about what would happen to key classified documents related to the Russia probe once President Trump took office that they created a list of document serial numbers to give to senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, a former Obama official told NBC News.

The official said that after the list of documents related to the probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election was created in early January, he hand-carried it to the committee members. The numbers themselves were not classified, said the official.

You see, it was so important that they didn’t start any investigations, they just planted bombs to keep Trump fighting this dishonest idiocy instead of presidentin’.

Obama and his media tools were screeching about Russia long before January, but they compiled this just in time for the change of admin.

There was a lot of that going around.

 

Not really linking this for anything except the horrifying aspect of the headline.

Could Donald Trump Seize
The U.S. Political Center?
Stranger Things Happened

 

The “Political Center” in America is the bastion of the We’re Better And Smarter Than Your Party that gives bi-partisan cover for leftist power grabs.

The people who are busily not repealing Obamacare or building a wall.

 

Okay, I can see why Ann Coulter would want to do this, but what the fuck is Berkeley thinking?

The planned visit by firebrand conservative commentator Ann Coulter to the University of California, Berkeley has officials and organizers worrying about a repeat of the rioting which greeted Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

So long as they get no federal funds to rebuild, I’m okay with it. It’s like an episode of The Purge except with the hilarity of lefties destroying their own property as the police watch. That’s darn funny.

 

This Is NYC!

Headline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cops find insane stockpile of weapons while hunting for rape suspect

I had to click to see this “insane stockpile.”

Cops found a stockpile of weapons that included four pistols, three long-guns,

I call that, ‘My living room’. I usually bring more than that to the desert to shoot.
