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

(graphic via Powerline)

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.

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.

 

Wait, nothing’s changed, it’s just that masks are coming off.

I’m on Day something of boycotting Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 and Trump Lied About Being Wiretapped!!!!!!!!!!! news. I can’t take all the lying lies from fakenewsers.

Speaking of which, Charles Krauthammer has revealed himself, over the Obama years, to be just another member in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

but Krauthammer has a carefully, and well-deserved, reputation for being smart rather than ideologically correct and must know better. Here’s what he said (I transcribed the segment myself from a replay of the program)

“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.”

It’s been really infuriating watching our fine media and political betters switch 180 degrees from “Look at what those wiretaps proved!!!!!” to “There were no wiretaps!!!!!!!!” and stay there.

 

I’m a little disappointed in this guy.

When Mitch McConnell promised to repeal Obamacare “root and branch,” Meadows (Freedom Caucus leader) actually thought that he meant … well … root and branch.

And when Mr. Meadows read the fifth sentence of Speaker Paul Ryan’s “Better Way to Fix Health Care,” which declared, “Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach,” well, he though it meant full repeal, starting over, and a new approach.

Meadows, along with a few of his compatriots, didn’t seem to get the memo: that this was all a joke. Who do they think they are? Amelia Bedelia? Doesn’t he know they only meant to repeal the funding mechanism of Obamacare to make it more insolvent?

 

With just a slightly lighter touch, it would be the type of satire that’s best, the type where you can’t tell if it’s really satire or for reals.

I read almost the same article a couple of times over the weekend and they were serious. Like this one from yesterday about how The Conservatives Made A Mistake!!!!!! for expecting GOP officials to do what they’ve been specifically elected to do.

 

So some people in MD are upset that 17 and 18 year old HS “freshman”/illegal aliens raped a classmate but the people in charge of their children know who’s to blame.

The public outrage toward the illegal alien suspectsaccused of raping a 14-year-old freshman at Rockville High School has been “racist” and “xenophobic,” according to Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith.

Our betters are just sick of our shit.

 

CBS has always been full off commie stooges, just like the rest of Minitrue.

CBS proudly claims Julia Sweig as a “CBS News Analyst.”

Back in 2008 the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher  Lieut. Col. Chris Simmons (now retired), named this very Julia Sweig as a full-fledged  “agent of influence” for the Castro regime.

It’s the perfect match, like balls and chains or cats and nine-tails!

 

Okay, this takes all the balls in the world.  China is the world’s biggest thief of intellectual property, nobody else is even close. Which makes this even funnier and chutzpaer.

A ban on selling iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones in China got overturned after a Chinese court ruled in favor of Apple in a design patent dispute.

Last May, a Beijing patent regulator ordered Apple and a local retailer Zoomflight to stop selling the iPhones after China-based Baili claimed they infringed on the patented design of its 100c smartphone.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday overturned the ban, saying the regulator didn’t follow due procedures. It also said there wasn’t sufficient proof to claim the designs infringed on Baili’s patents, noting that people could easily tell the iPhone 6 and the 100C apart.

Get that? Some commie chinese company  stole (I figure V) Apple’s intellectual property and then sued to keep Apple from competing with them.

But the part that this article ignores (probably because the ‘journalist’ is lazy, stupid, biased and ignorant like the rest of the breed), is that this was a shakedown.

Chinese courts aren’t like ours. Sure, they have judges and benches and shit, but their verdicts are what their commie masters tell them. This was just a way to get some money of out of Apple.

And that makes me laugh. I hope they keep doing that shit to Apple until Apple is forced to give up all the $billions they’ve invested in their slave-labor factories. Fuck em.

 

I see this sort of stuff and I just fundamentally disagree.

The film he was referring to was Stanley Kubrick’s touching First World War drama Paths of Glory, in which the master tells the story of a group of French soldiers court-martialed for cowardice during the trench war with the Germans, and their moral commander who decides to defend them in court. Paths of Glory came out in 1957, was released exactly on Christmas, and managed to cover the cost of its production, but not achieve any significant financial gain. This comes to no surprise given the themes it chose to explore and the obstacles it faced in its initial run. The film’s obvious anti-military subtext…

I don’t think it’s ‘anti-military’, it is anti-French way of doing war.

Some general made a plan but was told it wouldn’t work. Since he’s a general and can’t be wrong, they sent in the attack anyway. It got all fucked up and some men didn’t attack when they were supposed to because the rest of the plan fell apart before they were supposed to attack.

Since you can’t make a French general look bad, they told Kirk Douglas (playing a French colonel) to choose a few men and execute them for cowardice in battle.

It’s a perfect slice of why I do not like the European way of war, there are the aristocrats and peasants and never the twain shall meet, except when the aristos tell the proles to go die gloriously. The man who ordered The Charge Of The Light Brigade should have been shot before they were halfway across the valley but that’s not what happened.

But since it shows what happens in real war, it’s anti-war. Like Pork Chop Hill, which I don’t think is anti-war, just very accurate.

 

Okay, I have to wonder if anybody’s using this utterly creepy, unwieldy thing.

This new wearable device is supposed to make meeting people easier. Called Ripple, the device was designed by students at the Royal College of Arts in London.

Using two built-in cameras, the device monitors the environment around you, sending you a signal when someone’s gaze lingers on you. After helping you identify your admirer, Ripple’s tentacles will start moving flirtatiously if it senses there’s a mutual attraction. You can see Ripple in action in the video above.

 

Check it out, it’s freaking bizarre. A girl wears this framework with tentacles hanging off it (is it racist that they use a Japanese-looking girl for their tentacle thing?). If someone looks at her the cameras pick it up and the tentacles slap around the girl to let her know the direction. If she looks they start waving more, if they keep staring at each other, they get more agitated.

It’s the Doc Ock dating device!!!

Them getting themmer.

Us.

The new right wing does more than just get petty when the going gets rough. We appropriate. When you attack us, we turn it into a slogan. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” made us into The Deplorables. Her “fake news” now defines all the news that lies about us. We even got her freaking out about a green frog. Since then, we’ve convinced them that everything from an “OK” gesture to a bobbing purple dove to a glass of milk is a secret Nazi code. It’s so easy to turn them into a dizzy Chihuahua frantically chasing his own tail that it’s almost cruel—almost.

They’re tools and we’re a tool using species, it’s a perfect match!

 

Them acting Themmer

Huntington Beach Pro-Trump March Turns Into Attack on Anti-Trump Protesters

So… Some Trump supporters just started attacking peaceful people?

The anti-Trump protester, dressed in all black and wearing a mask, attacked an organizer of the event, Jennifer Sterling, and other members of the march with the irritant, causing a group of marchers to tackle the masked man, punching and kicking him.

 

Ahh, so the anti-Trump folks were “mostly peaceful” Anti-fa blackshirts who got their asses so deservedly kicked.

People aren’t going to let our fine, mostly-peaceful, fascist countrymen beat us anymore. People are fighting back. Generation Snowflake is going to find out that beating the people they hate is not cost-free.

 

There’s also been a spate of us getting themmer.

Let’s accept that Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill wasn’t optimal.

Since it was Obamacare with some lipstick, yeah, we’ll go with “wasn’t optimal”, sounds so much better than “Fuck you people who voted for us to get rid of Obamacare”.

If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations,

Okay, that’s utterly stupid. The CBO is only useful for pushing lefty legislation or against conservative legislation.

But yes, it’s true, it wasn’t full repeal.

I’ll translate: “But yes it’s true, the GOP was saying Fuck You Base!”

Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that.

At least you’re admitting, even as you try to deny it, that the GOP was not keeping their campaign promise of getting rid of Obamacare. This would have been worse than no bill.

This bit makes me laugh.

Let’s also forget about any four-dimensional chess conspiracy theories.

It looks to me as if he’s trying to play 9-dimensional chess by passing bills that eventually get the gov’t out of all aspects of my life.

All this said, I simply feel that letting the bill die was such a huge mistake politically that it would have been worth eating the bill’s flaws — trying to fix them in the Senate — and living to fight another day.

See?

But I do care very much about the country and about what policies Trump institutes and leaves behind: the tax reform, regulation cutbacks, solid judge picks, and stronger foreign policy that seem to be a real and legitimate part of his agenda.

I’m a Conservative Dammmit!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a PATRIOT!!!!!! And I’m for REGULATION CUTBACKS!!!!!! DAMMMITTT!!!!! But let’s leave some of that gov’t regulation in one of the most important aspects of our lives! Healthcare Needs The Gov’t To Be In Charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CUZ IT’S CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!!

So that said, if the president now finds himself humiliated by the conservative leadership… if the president now finds himself unable to work with Republicans on the Hill…

What do the two have to do with each other? Republicans on the Hill are not led by any conservative leadership, they shit on the conservative leadership.

I fear this may be the end result of the failure of the healthcare bill: a Washington in which Donald Trump can find more love on the left than on the right, more chance of winning through leftism than through conservatism.

The Moderate Wing of the GOP (the GOP wing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party) is always pushing the same thing, surrender. The GOP is far more On The Left than On The Right. Saying anything else is just not paying attention.

If only conservatives would get over that whole, “Limited gov’t thing” we could just get stuff done!

 

Let’s look at what Minitrue’s doing.

This has to kill this minitrue outlet in good standing.

Trump was right after all about the Obama administration wiretaps

Even as most of the media is still pushing “Unsubstantiated claims!!!!!!” bullshit.

It’s still minitrue, so they have to write this

Of course, the original tweets were poorly worded and inappropriate as a way for a president to raise this issue. Moreover, the inadvertent surveillance is rightfully distinguished from the original suggestion of a targeting of Trump.

It’s funny, the guy spent a paragraph or two explaining that “wiretapping” was a broader statement than just “taps on a wire” yet then he writes “poorly worded”. They’re still on “inapropriate” and yet, if Trump had not tweeted that, we would not be discussing Obama’s felonious/near treasonous listening in a political opponent.

In the 70s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media got him to resign over the cover-up.

In the 10s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media is trying to get the wiretappee to resign by covering up the crime.

It’s a funny old world.

 

More reports of Obama wiretapping Trump.

A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration.

But Trump hates him some (insert current fakenewsers’ lie here)

 

Too bad the CDC and the NIH are too busy worrying about global worming and my guns to do anything about this work on sepsis.
