By any other name.

Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election.

There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton.

Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers.

Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration.

Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as incapable of properly vetting travelers to the U.S.

The first lady did not work for an elite escort or prostitute service. She never said that she and young Barron Trump would not be moving to the White House. Barron does not have autism.

Trump’s father never ran racist ads as a supposed candidate in a purported political campaign. Kellyanne Conway denies that in a private conversation between segments on MSNBC, she privately remarked to hosts that she had to take a shower after working for Trump.

Donald Trump never suggested to the Mexican president that the U.S. was going to invade Mexico. Nor did Trump plan to mobilize the National Guard to send back illegal aliens.

He did not remove a Martin Luther King bust from the White House.

There was no evidence that he ever promised to ease Russian sanctions (much less that he promised the Russians he would be “flexible” after he was elected). He did not short the FBI of resources to conduct an investigation into supposed Russian collusion. He did not go to Moscow and watch prostitutes in his bed urinate where Barack Obama had previously slept.

His deputy attorney general did not threaten to resign over the Comey firing.

And we have no idea whether Trump really gets two scoops of ice cream while limiting his guests to one, or pads around in a bathrobe in the early evening, or cannot find the light switch in the White house.

Yet all that is what daily we hear and read.

Meanwhile . . . (this is the time when you make with the clicky, V)

The Five Most Important Takeaways from Trump’s Budget
May 23, 2017 by Dan Mitchell
It’s both amusing and frustrating to observe the reaction to President Trump’s budget.

I’m amused that it is generating wild-eyed hysterics from interest groups who want us to believe the world is about to end.

But I’m frustrated because I’m reminded of the terribly dishonest way that budgets are debated and discussed in Washington. Simply stated, almost everyone starts with a “baseline” of big, pre-determined annual spending increases and they whine and wail about “cuts” if spending doesn’t climb as fast as previously assumed.

Yeah, we’ve been watching that shit for years.

Which led us to:

 

Same story, same words, different reactions.

Fakenewser Extraordinaire is up in arms!

President Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.

Now, there’s no reason to believe this, the Wash Post lies. they make up sources and even if they have sources, how can “former officials’ know this? Who are the current officials? Is it Clapper and Comey? (the two cs in coup, coup)

So judging by the Wash Post’s track record, it’s probably a lie. But if it isn’t….

Trump was trying to get them to tell the truth. But they didn’t, Clapper and Comey just keep lying, obfuscating and innuendoing and where has that lead us?

Here.

More than half of Democrats believe Russians tampered with vote tallies in order to swing the election for President Trump.

I really cannot figure out how lefties think but why aren’t they advocating war with Russia?

If I thought that I’d be up in fucking arms demanding we go to war with Russia. Democrats only want to get Trump.

Are they all lying sacks of shit or do some of them actually believe the lies and hate they spew?

These are the questions that don’t keep me up at night. Who really cares? You treat them like the chubby-fisted, sippy-cup bangers they are either way.

This has never been reported, it was angrily asked back when this shit started, “Do you think Russians changed votes? No? Then shut up.” But since the people in charge of investigating this shit are lying, obfuscating and innuendoing, here we are. In crazy land. With much of America thinking Russia committed an act of war but those people are not mad at Russia, they’re mad at me for voting for Trump. And their daddies. But that’s a whole nother post.

 

CNN finally found some Fake News they cannot get behind!

Fox News staffers expressed frustration on Monday that on-air personalities at their network like prime time host Sean Hannity are continuing to peddle a conspiracy theory about the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.
“I’m disgusted by it,” one Fox News employee (Hey Shep! V) told CNN.

First, why is Shep Smith talking to CNN instead of reporting on this?

Second, I’m with CNN and Shep on this one. Because there’s no evidence or pattern of Hillary haters being killed conveniently and in odd circumstances! That’s the real crazy talk!

One question, what about all the Dems who believe the fake news that Russians hacked vote totals? Why aren’t you busily exposing that?

I know, they’re fomenting it, but I just like to pretend we’re in a different world sometimes. It’s more restful there. The beer is all European and the sunsets get cool purples almost every night.

 

Let’s take a break from insanity and focus on the real enemy.

It’s a good thing they’re investigating extremists! I mean, just cuz those savages went after a concert filled with young teens at the moment when their parents were there to pick them up doesn’t mean we need to be rude!

Think about that, they blew up their bombs so the children could see their parents blown up and parents could see children blown up and the police are going after someone who doesn’t want it to happen again. She didn’t advocate violence, she said it has to stop.

So to the Brit Police, wanting to stop terrorists is worse than being a terrorist.

It’s a good thing the gov’t took their guns! They need to know their place!

 

Think my comment on the Brit police and their priorities is harsh? Possibly, doesn’t make it untrue.

Compare and contrast

Abedi was known to the security services but was not part of any active investigation or regarded as a high risk. He was viewed as a peripheral figure in much the same way as the Westminister attacker, Khalid Masood.

I’m not sure what they’re going to do with that hateful….white-privileged person above, but it surely won’t be less lenient than they treated those two misunderstood youths who were just trying to make a statement about the Crusades! I’d say the police are harsher toward that hateful person. She’s not gonna blow anybody up if they fuck with her after all.

 

To all the willful idiots in the media who are saying, “We don’t know if he acted alone. Authorities say he detonated it alone.”

So he had a button I’d guess, but I wouldn’t take that statement without a grain of salt. They lie a lot to Prevent The Backlash Against The True Victims Of This Attack, so it could have been a cell phone detonator and this fool thought he was just going to drop it off and then set it off but someone beat him to the boom.

The other idiocy is about acting alone. Where would he get bomb-making materials? Detonators? Know-how?

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t know how to make a bomb. I’m in America so I could get ammo fairly easily and use that I’d guess but I’d be worried about the detonator. All I know about detonators is that I’d want either a very damn long fuse or a useful idiot to test it out. Over there preferably (points out in the desert).

That shit scares me. I don’t mess with electricity either. A man has to know his limitations.

So I’m gonna go out on a limb and say this guy had help making his bomb at least. So no, he didn’t work alone.

 

Lest we get too tied up in the media ignoring the murderous dictator in Venezuela, let’s take a look at another, closer, murderous dictator they’re busy ignoring! The one their God-President gave great concessions to and got jack and shit in return (and jack’s out squatting). No, not the Iranians. No, not the Chinese. No, not the fucking Norks, I’m talking about Cuba. Cuba! Geez, I said “closer” than Venezuela. Get a globe.

That particular murderous dictator pays attention to reality.

Cuban officials put a stop to the launch of a new independent magazine after several warnings and threats to island journalists.

Five journalists were warned about starting a magazine called Identidades — orIdentities — which drew attention from authorities at the Department of State Security and the National Revolutionary Police May 19 and 20.

Hernandez said he was intimidated by DSE officer Lucas when being subpoenaed at the police station, where an officer insinuated that he could “end up like Mexican journalists: dead” if he continued his work. (emphasis me V, it’s emphasizable cuz our fine media betters ignore it.)

Our journolisters can’t be assed to cover either the murderousness of murderous commie dictatlors or Mexican cartels that supply their drugs, they’re busy making up lies about their real enemies; people who can keep Democrats from being elected.

 

Now here’s my question.

United Nations experts investigating violations of sanctions on North Korea have suffered a “sustained” cyber attack by unknown hackers with “very detailed insight”into their work, according to an email warning seen by Reuters on Monday.

And in related news…

Symantec says ‘highly likely’ North Korean hacking group behind ransomware attacks

Look at this

Is that picture a good illustration of a place that can educate, train and deploy such uber-competent hackers?

Do you think that maybe, just maybe, there’s another country, possibly bordering the Norks  to the north, who could help them with those sorts of things?  A country that sent a million troops to keep them commie? A country not named “America” or “Australia”, which countries are the only countries that voluntarily go home after kicking out invaders.

 

This one has to be tough for lefties.

Defense lawyers plan to argue that religious freedom is at the core of the case in which two physicians and one of their wives are charged with subjecting young girls to genital cutting. All three are members of the Dawoodi Bohra, a small Indian-Muslim sect that has a mosque in Farmington Hills.

On the one hand, Muslims are just about the highest group with victimhood for lefties. I mean, they only savage other wogs’ vaginas, so rich, white lefties can safely ignore it, but it’s happening to wymyns who are also children.

I just want to see how they square the irregular polygon that is the idea that refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding is worthy of loss of all worldly goods and ability to make a living versus the idea that savaging a child’s hoo ha is okay cuz of freedom of religion.

It won’t be funny, but it might just make more people look and say, “You’re fucking crazy. Shut up.”

 

Probably gonna piss some people off, but what the hell.

I remember vomiting like this.

There’s nothing like projectile vomiting when you’re a little kid and it’s not alcohol related.

I remember my whole body feeling cleaned out after doing that, it’s better than your best dump.

 

 

Could actual reality be imposing its will on REALITY!!!!!!!!!?

Above the post, a minute later, Netanyahu makes Veeshir laugh! Update!!!!!

Netanyahu: For The First Time in My Lifetime, There Is Hope For Change and Realistic Peace

That’s Yiddish for “How’s my ass taste Obama?”

Now back to our post. You have to read the next question after reading the headline but before reading this. I probably should have told you that earlier. Oh well, on to the post!

 

Some would say, No!

Like the WSJ.

Republicans in Congress appear to have struck a Faustian bargain with President Trump: They turn a blind eye to his antics, ethical lapses, possible Russian ties and sheer incompetence. In return, he supports their hard-right agenda to shred the social safety net and cut taxes on the rich.

But now—after the clumsy firing of FBI Director James Comey, the alleged obstruction of justice, the unconscionable revelation of sensitive…

First, ‘Faustian”?

 

More importantly, I could get a subscription to the WSJ to read the rest of the article, but I’ve found a supplier of cheap, actual, moonshine and it accomplishes the same number of dead brain cells.

The only difference is that I point and laugh at entirely different things than the feverish imaginations of some idiot who thinks the GOP was ever on Trump’s side who also calls Trump the “Devil”.

So what has he done that’s so incompetent Mama Boucher… Wall Street Journal Journalist!? Is it undoing Obama’s lawless orders or saying, “Islamic terrorism” to Saudis or flying directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel? Or is it that he goes against what the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party has decreed is Good For America? (spoiler alert, it’s the last thing, V)

While I point and laugh at idiots sometimes when I’m drunk I try to avoid those people, they harsh my buzz.

The other difference is that the moonshine is cheaper. The best part? There’s no deposit on the mason jar but they pay you when they return them!

 

For a take closer to mine, this guy. Via this girl.

For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.

They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.

On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense

RTWT, it’s very intelligent. You can tell cuz it’s agrees with what I think.

 

More smart people!

Wrong, wrong, wrong. He IS addressing the nation—via Twitter, as Rush mentioned, which disallows Government Media from spinning, lying, selectively editing, and basically standing everything he says on its head to mean the opposite of what he actually did say.

We’ve heard it from the very beginning, but think, if you will, about just who it is that’s continually bitching about Trump being on Twitter: Democrat Socialists and—perhaps to an even greater degree—Trump’s Republicrat opposition. The only people who are upset by Trump’s Tweeting are people who don’t like him, who opposed him from the start, and are working even now to thwart and hogtie him. (bold me, italics him V) (well, italics him except for here and the previous parenthetical V)

Going around the Consensus! to get his message out is his worst sin.

 

Ladies, gentleman and Democrats of all ages, I give you a glowing example of the fine Democratic Values!

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)…

“In the words of Kendrick Lamar – whose real last name is Duckworth – be humble,” Duckworth told the graduates.

The lyric in the song is, “bitch, be humble”

She glorified telling bitches to know their place.

But Trump said something stupid! We’re not going to say what, cuz everybody knows he does it all the time, but he said something stupid and therefore, you’re a misogynist hater for noticing this Wymyns Democrat telling bitches to know their place!

Hater.

 

Reality.

Almost all murders and attempted murders in Sweden using firearms are carried out by people with foreign backgrounds..

In around half of the cases, the men were born in Sweden whilst others migrated to the country at a young age. The study looked at 53 convicted and 47 suspected perpetrators involved in shootings in public places which have taken place since 2013…

Around 80 per cent of the men have roots in the Middle East and North Africa, with offenders having roots in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Somalia, and Eritrea…

REALITY!!!!!!!

Sweden now has a registry where people who are “guilty of wrong-think” can be looked up. And if you are on that registry, there will be consequences. Wrong think by the way, includes people who speak openly about the population replacement by migrants in a less than glowing way…

The authority justifies view the registry to those listed expressed objectionable views.

“About 12 000 international and Swedish accounts dedicated to the drive, threat, hatred and incitement against migrants, women and LGBT people, but also against organizations involved in human rights. These accounts often have right-wing and / or neo-Nazi orientation and excites even violence, “the Authority on its website.” (emphasis him V)

Ungood thinking is ungood and will be tracked by the forces of Tolerance, Love and Mostly Peace!

They used to have vikings there, didn’t they? I know they had Gustavus Adolphus, maybe he ended up in Hell and this is his punishment. It surely ain’t Valhalla.

Well, it ain’t Valhalla for Swedish. It appears to be Valhalla for Muslims as they fight all day, eat and drink all night and the place they’re fighting is paying for it all!

 

I don’t really see the problem here.

Venezuela possesses 5,000 Russian-made MANPADS surface-to-air weapons, according to a military document reviewed by Reuters,

The murderous dictator isn’t firing rockets at the protestors and I doubt Trump will invade Venezuela (Joe Biden might, going after all the Nazis who fled there after WWI and the Boer War), and I’d rather have them in that murderous dictator’s hands than some murderous terrorists in the middle east. He might sell them to murderous terrorists elsewhere, but Putin can do that himself. And does.

 

This is somewhat more worrying to me, from so long ago that it didn’t happen.

A proposed contract between Russia and Venezuela that could transfer thousands of sniper rifles to Venezuela has raised concerns in the United States about the potential use or regional distribution of the weapons by the socialist-inspired government of President Hugo Chávez.

The rifles are the latest variant of the Dragunov, a long-barreled, semiautomatic design with a telescopic sight.

Yeah, those sniper rifles are being put to good use.

With Venezuela holding a massive protest today dubbed the “Mother Of All Protests” to challenge the rule of president Maduro, who meanwhile has ordered the army into the streets, while summoning a counterprotests, violence seemed inevitable and moments ago Reuters reported that a young protester was shot (head shot, there’s a disturbing tweet with semi-blurred pic V) in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas.

Since the current murderous dictator was Chavez’ secret police chief, Maduro was in charge of murdering protestors under Chavez too.

All sides agree that a massacre took place on April 11 (2002) in El Silencio (the Silence), a historic district in the heart of downtown Caracas. Sometime between 2:30 and 3:20 p.m., gunmen began firing on opposition demonstrators as they marched on the Miraflores presidential palace to demand Chávez’s resignation (there is some dispute about exactly when the first shots were fired). Nineteen people were killed, including seven opposition demonstrators, seven Chavista counter-demonstrators, and five bystanders, together with about 60 wounded. By that evening, Chávez would be out of office, only to return 47 hours later after the implosion of the provisional government.

So nothing new. Just the same old stuff that our fine media betters are ignoring. Cuz this time, this time!!!!!!, they might get socialism right! If they have to kill a few wogs, well, eggs and Halloween and all that.

 

More REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On today’s Reliable Sources on CNN, Schieffer reported the glaringly obvious truth: that President Trump gave a good speech in Saudi Arabia today. Guest host John Berman had to push back: “you know, Bob, though, that there will be people who look at that last comment you made and say you’re normalizing the president.”

Schieffer gave the perfect response: he wasn’t trying to normalize Trump, he was trying to do what reporters [are supposed to] do: report.

It’s sorta depressing that they’re using my strategy against me. They refuse to act as if reality is real, while I want us to refuse to accept their REALITY!!!!!!!.  Good on Schieffer for his response (there’s vid at the link), I would have expected an apology or some sort of half-hearted defense.

I love this bit from the journolister

you’re normalizing the president. You’re saying because he met this admittedly very low bar for not sounding foolish, in fact, he was in fact presidential. What would you say to criticism like that? (I’d tell you to wash Democratic ass off your mouth before talking to me, but then, I’m kind of an asshole V)

Yeah, the very low bar set by Obama.

Trump didn’t bow as he was shaking hands (a major faux pas in diplomatic circles), he didn’t bow at the waist all the way as if looking for lost change, a sign that you are in a subordinate position, and he didn’t apologize to dictators for buying their product and protecting their country against their neighbors so they can keep dictating.

So yeah, that bar was low, but Trump cleared it without even noticing it. He said,

That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.

When was the last time anyone said that in Saudi Arabia? I’d guess it was done in a British accent and the speaker was a military governor of the British Empire in the 19th century.

If not then, I’d say it was never said to the oligarchs of Arabia.

Looking for articles on that speech, I saw some hilarious stuff about how it was a terrible speech that did not do any good. Which shows us that the media isn’t even trying anymore. They had those articles written before the speech and Trump had the bad manners to not suck but they didn’t change their articles. Remember, they’re not just stupid, ignorant and biased, they’re lazy too!

 

The Arctic will be ice-free this year….in five years…..in 23 years!

The last piece of summer sea-ice in the Arctic is expected to melt away in just 23 years,

Disprove that prediction!  I love this bit

three decades earlier than previously expected.

Don’t you mean 3 decades later?

Or….

Global warming alarmists and climate scientists have predicted that the Arctic Ocean will be ice-free by 1979, or 2000, or 2008, or 2012, or 2013, or 2015, or 2020, or 2030, or 2050 or…

Do you mean 61 years late? 40 years late? 32 years late? 28 years late? 27 years late? 25 years late? 20 years late? 10 years late? or 10 years early?

It’s sorta funny how Settled Science!!!!!!!!!!! is so unsettling.

 

While I don’t condone this and I think anybody who disseminates this is a tool of Big Robbery!, it’s just so darn brilliant I have to post it.

Always carry duct work when committing a crime!

 

The most brilliant ideas are the simplest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am going to live in a trailer park. Words I thought I’d never say. No, really. But when they raised my rent I decided to move and found out that I would have to pay $700+ to live some place I’d want to live. So I started looking at trailers, you buy the trailer and lease the spot it’s on, or move the trailer for $10k I guess. So I found one in Tempe for $10k with new appliances and in very good shape in a nice park near 101, 202, the Cubs spring training and Mesa Riverwalk park, it’s $500+/month. I took care of the paperwork for a background check for the park today so I just tubed shortly this morning.

I saw on CNN or Foxnews about the Wash Post’s BIG SCOOP!

Oops, wrong scoop(s).

Current and former U.S. officials, supposedly concerned that President Trump had shared some “highly classified information” with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S. last week, leaked that information to the Washington Post in an article published Monday.

 

That raises so many questions. First, what is the Wash Post going to do when this sack of lies falls apart? How about CNN? How about Foxnews?

In addition, his national security adviser, who was at the meeting, told the Post nothing was shared that was not already publicly known…

McMaster later told reporters at the White House, “Other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”

I know who I trust, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in that. Anonymous sources haven’t had a good week in DC. Well, except for whoever leaked the HORRIFIC NEWS that Trump gets two scoops of ice cream.

Nother question, notice who is “concerned”, “…former U.S. officials”. How do former U.S. officials know anything about what’s going on now? Was the classified information from when they were still U.S. officials or from after? Isn’t it a felony if they do know anything? Why isn’t there an independent counsel investigating this? We Demand Answers!

More nother questions, Who are the “Current” officials? Why are they anonymous? Why should we trust them? Why should we trust the Wash Post? After the last week of wall-to-wall lies followed by corrections or just memory-holing.

Chicken fucking from the Post article.

One day after dismissing Comey, Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — a key figure in earlier Russia controversies

Squwark!

This is my favorite part

As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.

You know it killed them to write that even if they did include the weasel phrase about how it’s unlikely he broke the law. If you take out everything between the comma and the period that sentence is accurate, if over-commaed. Fakenewsers gonna fakenews.

 

Since I’m worked up and the “new post” is right here, might as well do some more links.

Paco links an article about how the attorney explaining how Trump is evil is defending honor killing.

I finally clicked through and read the pdf of Trump’s order.

Reading it you realize that everything everybody said against it is a lie, distortion or just stupidity. Or all three I guess. Yeah, that’s the way to bet.

It starts out talking about the previous order that a different judge’s politics struck down, then explains he doesn’t want people from terrorist countries, terrorist countries that are our avowed enemies and terrorist countries that do not have anything resembling an even decent central gov’t. Then, he explains he’s going to ” collect and make publicly available the following information: ” on illegal actions of foreign nationals in America.

I figure that was the real sin. Noticing and telling people certain things are very bad in lefto-fascist world.
A few years ago a building in Minneapolis blew up in a suspicious manner. After much searching, I found that the building was full of young Somali men and had a halal grocery and mosque in it. The FBI said “gas”, the gas company said, “not gas”, they razed the building immediately so there was no investigation. I figured it looked like a work accident and everybody involved acted as if they were covering up a work accident but I couldn’t be sure.

In today’s exciting episode, we see that it might not have been a work-accident, but it’s not for not trying.

Minneapolis police uncovered an arsenal of guns and bomb-making devices during a routine arrest last week…

nside, the officers found a hand grenade, handgun, assault rifles and magazines and a large quantity of ammunition, the complaint said. They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts.

Bomb squad personnel called to the scene noted that the large amount of ammunition and electronic devices could be used for bomb-making, the complaint said.

 

It’s a good thing those judges are protecting us from Trump!

This scares me though.

Abdullah N. Alrifahe, 27, of Minneapolis, was charged with a gross misdemeanor for carrying a pistol in public without a permit. In December, he was convicted of the same offense.

It could not be determined whether the FBI or another federal agency is investigating.

He had a hand grenade and they charged him with a misdeameanor.

I can’t even get a dam hand grenade and this guy can. Sonomabatch.

Sometimes I hate being a, generally, law-abiding person.

 

I wouldn’t click the linkbait article he links, but here’s a puppy blender link.

THE IDEA OF “GENDER” IS ITSELF A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT: Why We Should Stop Using the Term ‘Gender.’

There are people, influential people, who nod and agree. People who think I’m anti-science because I don’t believe in global worming.

Gender is a social construct. I actually had plans to explain why that’s so stupid, but I don’t want to insult anybody unnecessarily and if I have to explain it to you then perhaps you are on the wrong blog. Balloon Juice is right over there (points left).

(no, my left)

 

I posted about the all Muslim-girl prom yesterday, but I thought about something I’d not thought about.

You cannot say, “Merry Christmas” in a school because it’s against Freedom Of Religion!!!!!!!!!!!  but you can have an Islamically demanded prom.

WTF? Our national religion is leftism, how did Islam get the same protections?

 

Via Wirecutter, we see this article that shows I should be more afraid of tweakers.

A man covered in blood, holding a knife and carrying his mother’s severed head walked into an Estacada grocery store and stabbed an employee Sunday

Now, it’s not funny at all but I am a little twisted so…if your mom is upset you didn’t get her the right flowers yesterday you can tell her at least you didn’t chop off her head before going to the supermarket to look for cheap flowers. Puts things in perspective.

 

I am so sick of all the Concerned and Alarmed idiocies about how firing Comey is the End of the Republic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let’s see if I can ignore Comey for this post.

There’s something about this vid that I really like.

I’m not sure what it is, but I just like watching that.

 

Victor Davis Hanson wonders if Trump can successfully remodel the GOP.  Trump has some help in that, but as we’ve seen, the voters have very limited power to change the gov’t in our particular form of republic. We can change the names of our ‘leaders’, but we apparently have little more power to change the policies than residents of a People’s Republic or even a Democratic People’s Republic.

And this is why

Republicans concentrate on what they like in the Trump agenda — military spending increases, energy expansion, deterrence abroad, tax and regulatory reform, and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act — and they ignore the inherent contradictions between Trumpism and their own political creed…

In this mainstream Republican view, the role of a superpower is to endure trade deficits to help its less powerful allies and keep the global order prosperous and stable. But Trump’s idea of “fair” trade trumps “free” trade.
Trump is not willing to accept a permanent Midwest Rust Belt as the price of globalization.

Yup. They think that people who want to revitalize American manufacturing are parochial and just not that bright. If we have to pay for their vision of how the world works, well, that’s what welfare is for!

At first he seemed to be defending our fine political betters, but then he noticed reality in a way that’s very intelligent (i.e. agrees with what I think)

More

Unlike doctrinaire Republicans, Trump believes that illegal immigration is a big — and bad — deal.
The Republican establishment’s employer argument is that illegal immigration ensures that the sort of work “Americans won’t do” is actually done. Or, some establishment Republicans believe that undocumented migrants who cross the southern border will one day become conservative, “family values” voters.
Not so Trumpism. It seeks to help the working class by stopping the importation of cheap labor. It believes that secure borders will restore the sanctity of law, and that the end of illegal immigration will lead to greater integration and assimilation of Latino minority groups.

Exactly. The way we integrated immigrants for 200 years is just so simplisme! The Melting Pot is racist and cannot be taught anymore! Diversity is our strength!

While having diverse opinions can be strengthening, we are balkanizing. Immigrants from previous generations are only different in the food they eat and the booze they drink in general. That includes many (most?) Mexicans, although that numbers was a higher percentage of the whole a few decades ago.

Trumpism has no illusions that there will ever be a world of liberal democracies. It seeks instead only to make sure enemies understand that any future aggression will not be worth the anticipated benefits.

Nuke The Moon! baby. We don’t need our enemies to like us, they won’t, we just need them to respect and fear us. Or just fear us. But respect makes it easier to intimidate.

As for dictators such as those in the Philippines or Egypt, Trumpism argues that it makes little sense to snub autocratic friends while cutting deals with autocratic enemies like those in Iran or Cuba.

That’s a great point, why should we be nice to the murderous dictators in China and Iran and mean to non- or less-murderous assholes elsewhere? The asshole in the Philippines isn’t killing his opposition (yet?) and the assholes in Egypt are killing their natural enemies (Christians and insufficiently similar Muslims) but leaving the rest of the world alone. Even Israel mostly.

Obama and Hillary got rid of Mubarak without a plan, Trump shouldn’t do the same. Especially as a sane plan would include us getting involved there after deposing the current dictators. We are done Nation-Building for the foreseeable future. We just don’t have the balls to do it the way we did with Japan and Germany, “Here’s your constitution and gov’t. Meet your new military governor. He’ll be leaving when we can trust you not to be murderous assholes and can trust your neighbors not to invade you and make you differently murderous assholes.”

Now we run away.

On matters of identity politics, Republicans have often sought to play down but not actively oppose racial, ethnic, and gender pressure groups. The strategy has been to not antagonize the ethnic and race industries in hopes of receiving a greater share of the minority vote.
Trump is politically incorrect.

And it’s been hilarious.

Trump just keeps making end runs around Minitrue’s Narrative and the entire We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is just freaking out. Their weapons are useless!

So we see articles like this from Concerned Republicans Who Only Want What Is Best For The Nation!

Headline

For the love of God, delete his account

That would be Trump’s Twitter account. The one that gives our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters such agita.

President Trump’s impulsive social media habit does little to advance his agenda, it pulls both his fans and critics into endless fights and it has created several major headaches for top White House staffers, including Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway.

That’s funny. Our fine betters in Minitrue, their entertainment arm, the rest of the Democratic party and most of the GOP are forced to change their actions because of Trump’s tweets. He got more action out of the country using social media than anyone since Sarah Palin put out her “Death Panel” deal.

It’s no small thing for a sitting president to appear to threaten a former FBI director. (shit, I thought I’d make it without Comeying V)

After 8 years of Obama threatening everybody from day 1, including police doing their jobs, private citizens, more private citizens,  more private citizens, more private citizens, more pr…(moving on) journalists (both real and suckophantic), our military, businesses… I know I’m leaving some people out, but Trump going after Hillary’s Head Bitch is not even in the same ballpark. Trump telling Comey not to lie about him is not just not wrong, but shows Trump has been paying attention to Comey.

It’s even worse when that same director formerly headed an investigation into the role hostile foreign agents played in the election that swept said president into power.

Still fucking that Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chicken I see. Once you see that you can safely assume that the idiot who wrote it is not processing reality. And even if it was 100% Russian Hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did they do? The Job Americans Won’t Do, i.e. report accurately on Democrat perfidy and felonyizing. Above we saw that the GOP is all about foreigners doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do but now they’re against it. Why…. it’s almost as if they use situational ethics where who is on the receiving end decides the morality and ethics of a position!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Assholes.

A non-exhaustive recap of the past week’s crop of Comey Fake News!!!!! that was breathlessly and shriekingly reported and (occasionally) quietly corrected.

If you care. I skimmed it, I don’t really need a reminder of the lies, distortions, contortions and “anonymous” liars they have and are trotting out. The only use for it is that I think Americans are actually watching with dropped jaw as our betters freak out over something they had all, each and every fucking one, called for as little as a week ago.

Speaking of assholes from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, John, I hate Veeshir, McCain!

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, offered high praise for Sen. John McCain on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican’s vocal criticism of President Trump marks his “finest hour.”

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

The senior Arizona senator has also been critical of Trump’s “America first” approach to foreign policy,

Exactly. We gave the GOP victories in the last few elections because we didn’t like what the Dems were doing to our nation so what do the big shit sheep…grand poo bahs of the GOP do? Stuff that gets praise from Democrats. Asshole Democrats like Schiff.

 

Speaking of the entertainment arm of the Democratic media/entertainment political complex, The Last (conservative) Man Standing isn’t.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing”…

Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across…

the blue-collar sitcom was ABC’s second most watched comedy this season with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8,7 million). It was the third most watched ABC scripted series overall behind Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family….(emphasis me V)

 

So they canceled one of the shows that people actually want to watch for their religion. Someone should tell them that tithing only requires 10%, not bankruptcy. Via Commonsense and Wonder.

 

The NY Post plays Name That Party! about a DA stepping back as he’s being criminally investigated.

allegations he took part in a police coverup involving former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke, who pleaded guilty in February 2016 to federal charges that he beat a man who stole a stash of porn and a sex toy from Burke’s official vehicle.

I don’t get the problem, misuse of gov’t property is a right and Dems covering up their accomplices in graft is how NY works! He looks sorta old, maybe the ass’t DA wasn’t interested in waiting for him to retire.

 

Nothing story about a Republican running for election has “irregularities” in his past, I’d say his mistake is he wasn’t high enough up in the hierarchy of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party to have the necessary degree of impunity.

Former South Carolina state senator Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district, sat on the board of a bank that accepted millions of dollars from the Obama administration’s 2008 bailout.

But I’m linking for the part I bolded. In 2008 Obama was not POTUS, that was Bush’ 2008 bailout.

Norman served on South Carolina Bank and Trust Financial Corporation’s board of directors in January 2009 when the bank sold $64.8 million in preferred stock and a 10-year warrant to the Treasury Department under its Capital Purchase Program, which was created as part of the federal government’s $700 billion bailout.

January, 2009 was when Obama ascended, that was Bush’s bailout.  The one he rammed down the financial world’s throat.

The chief executives of the country’s nine largest banks had no choice but to accept capital infusions from the Treasury Department in October, government documents released Wednesday have confirmed.

Obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan educational foundation, the documents reveal “talking points” used by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the Oct. 13 meeting between federal officials and the executives that stressed the investments would be required “in any circumstance,” whether the banks found them appealing or not.

Notice that in 2009 to that member in good standing of our fine media betters Judicial watch was “non-partisan”. (I know I missed a couple commas in there but I’m not sure where so here are a few you can insert  ,,,)

But why is the Free Beacon obfuscating the issue of who started stimuluzing and bailouting while attacking this man as a Friend Of Obama? Is the “journalist” just an idiot or is there some sort of agenda in play?

Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district,

Are they joining the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party or is it just that opinionator or are they angry that he’s not a conservative or some other, undisclosed, reason?

Because I’ll tell you what, taking money you’re forced to take by the POTUS from your party is not necessarily a sign that you’re not conservative.

Just something that confused me.

 

This is very messed up. In a story about a Gorsuch dissent (he was against the arrest), we see this.

The New Mexico incident began in 2011 when the student, known only as F.M. in court papers, kept interrupting his physical education class with fake burps. The teacher sent him into the hallway, where he continued burping and laughing as he leaned into the classroom entrance. (emphasis me V)

The teacher called for assistance on her school radio, and soon Arthur Acosta, a police officer assigned to the school, arrived in the hallway, according to court documents.

Acosta took the boy to the school’s office, then placed him under arrest for violating a New Mexico law that prohibits anyone from disrupting the education process. Acosta handcuffed the student and took him to the juvenile detention center, where the boy stayed about an hour until he was picked up…

I think it’s ridiculous that the kid was arrested, expel him if he’s that disrespectfully disruptive, but notice a few things.

There were cops patrolling the school, that’s not often done in schools where it’s not necessary. Maybe the cop knew the kid from previous interactions. Judging from what happened, I’m gonna assume this choir boy/orphanage-volunteer had previously had such disrespectful and disruptive episodes.

Also think about what he was doing.

Acosta’s lawyer says the criminal act was the boy’s “interference with the educational process, not the act of burping.”

Sure, it was burping and laughing, but he was showing a complete lack of respect for the teacher, the other students and the whole concept of school. Further, his actions showed that he was utterly unafraid of any repercussions. From my experience, I’m gonna assume calling the parents would not be a useful exercise.

There are a lot of kids like that, I’m not just saying that just from my teaching experience but from relatives’ kids and their friends.

School cannot work unless there’s respect flowing both ways. Respect for others is sorely lacking in today’s culture.

 

Let’s Tolerance!

First up, we have this.

A Detroit-area high school is holding an all-girls prom

That’s not a prom. Jebus. How can you have a prom without prom-dates? Here’s the Tolerance part.

to create a comfortable and safe environment for girls who cannot attend the traditional co-ed prom for cultural reasons.

So in other words, the girls’ owners (male relatives) would beat them, honor-kill them, cut off their noses or just throw acid in their faces if they act like American girls.

I hate people sometimes. You really should not cater to that shit.

Now, for a little palate-washer, let’s look at the State of American Heavy Metal! They’re bad ass, they won’t cave to intolerant religious assholes who are intolerant!

Megadeth agreed to cut songs that were potentially “offensive” to Muslims after the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) Youth group voiced its objection to them touring the country.

Oh.

I wish to offend no one here. We cut songs for China.”

Really? Megadeth was out manlied by Elton John?

Chinese authorities have hardened their line on foreign musicians, after Elton John infuriated them by dedicating a performance to outspoken artist and activist Ai Weiwei, according to industry sources. Police arrived to interview the singer shortly after he announced that the performance, which took place in Beijing last November, was dedicated “to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei”

So sad.

When people try to censor your art, you tell them to fuck off or you just do your deal.

However, he (Jeff Dunham V) was informed by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture that Achmed should not be mentioned or brought on to the show..

Dunham cleverly side-stepped the issue by introducing a new character; “Who knew that Achmed had a French cousin — Jacques, the dead French terrorist?” he says. “It was Achmed with a beret and mustache, and the audience loved it, thankfully. But I was a bit frightened there, too. I thought, ‘Will they drag me off the stage and make an example of me?’ I honestly thought that was a possibility, as you never know how strict and real these laws are.”

So in other words, a flamingly flamboyent homosexual musician, second only to Liberace in his flamboyence, flaming and homosexuality, and a guy who plays with dolls have more balls than Megadeth!

Still say 80s music has heart and soul?

This made me laugh when I saw it. I’d like to see the entire show, but even his specials only show bits and pieces.

That’s how you do it.

 

Relatedly, Trump appoints a Frenchman, Vladimierre Poutin, as head of the FBI!

Sometimes reality is less funny than fantasy.

 

And then there are times like this.

A judge set bail Friday for an Elkhorn man accused of hiring prostitutes to bare their breasts and strip on his neighbor’s porch

My neighbors just call the cops on me.

Not sure why the cops got involved this time though, it seems to me a ‘Thank You’ was in order.

 

I thought hockey players were exempt from this shit.

Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss has apologized after he reportedly caused an outrage in Germany when it was discovered that he “liked” an Instagram post comparing Hillary Clinton to Adolf Hitler.

Although the way they’ve been trying to Stop Hockey’s Ultra-Violent Ways!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have figured SJW’s were paying attention.

One thing, I wonder if Hillary shaves anything like a Hitler mustache.

*smack*

Sorry, but if I had warned you you wouldn’t have read that and cringed.

The funniest thing I’ve heard hockey announcers say was when Montreal made Pierre Turgeon captain cuz he’s French-Canadian and a NY Islanders announcer said, “That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, the Islanders would have to have a Jew as captain!

The next day I waited to see but nobody freaked out. I figured they were still exempt, but apparently the forces of Tolerance And Love have decided that every aspect of our lives needs to be Toleranced, Loved and Mostly-Peaced.

 

 

I found an inside look at one of the top journalists at the Wash Post!

 

They’re obviously very busy, that must be why their lies and Fake News are so pathetic.

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.

He wants there to be a comprehensive study, and he said that Stanford University has expressed some interest. But he said it will be difficult to fund because it uses drugs that have been on the market for decades: “We are curing it for $60. No one will make any money off it.”

If the gov’t is gonna get into science, that’s what they should be doing but no, they’re too busy asking about my guns and worrying about the (made-up) plagues their god is wreaking on our world.

 

 

Other people are noticing 

I wonder if he was one of those how was slapping his fins and honking his horn for all the stinky fish they threw at our faces.

 

Eh, since I’m twitting, I’m might as well keep being a twit.

Holy Moly! Foghorn Leghorn must be on freaking steroids! The chicken hawk’s gonna need a bigger dog!

 

Now I don’t like Cat Videos very much, but this one just made me laugh.

 

 

I could see a new sport, you’d just have to used a well-waxed floor instead of ice. Cats don’t like cold.

 

Two pretty funny and very stupid articles from Conservative Thinkers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! extraordinaire.

Let’s start with Peggy Noonan, cuz her writing has become so shallow it doesn’t take long to ridicule.

Reach Across the Aisle, Mr. President

When Democrats win elections, Republicans need to reach across the aisle. When Republicans win elections, Republicans need to reach across the aisle. When Trump wins an election in spite of everything people like Peggy Noonan could do, Republicans need to reach across the aisle.

With this Deep Thought!!!!!!!!!!

The priorities should be jobs, growth, social cohesion and an atmosphere, in Washington, of constructiveness.

Well, he appears to be doing okay on jobs and growth in his first two months.

Social cohesion is not a priority for gov’t. Destroying it has been the method our fine political betters have used to gain political power though.

As for ‘constructiveness’ in DC, how about the fucking Democrats try working with someone else? How about that Peggy?

Nope, conservatives need to bend their principles because we’re all disappointing Peggy.

 

Next up, Rich Lowry, you can tell he’s super conservative cuz he writes at Politico. How The GOP Crack-Up Happens!!!!!

That relationship is awkward and tenuous. It is an uneasy accommodation between a GOP Congress that would find a more natural partner in a President Rubio, Cruz or Bush, and a President Trump who would, presumably, be happier to work with Speaker Dave Brat — the populist congressman from Virginia — than with Speaker Paul Ryan.

Exactly. He’s forced to work with Establishment Pricks who are refusing to reduce any of their power.

This is a product of how the Republican sweep of 2016 was won on separate tracks. Trump tore up many Republican orthodoxies and went out and found a different way to unlock the electoral map, winning in the industrial Midwest. Congressional Republicans more or less stuck with the usual script, kept Trump at arm’s length, and held their majorities in the House and the Senate.

Yeah. They were elected to reverse what the Dems have been doing, most especially in terms of illegal immigration and Obamacare. But Thoughtful Conservatives Everywhere are telling us whoa, it’s not that simple! You can’t just do what the stupid voters want, that way lies madness!

And there was no off-the-shelf Trump legislation that Congress could begin on immediately.

You know, except reintroducing one of the previous 10 Obamacare repeal bills, building a wall, making Hillary Clinton ambassador to Libya…

The congressional priorities are Obamacare repeal and tax reform, both of which could easily have been the first-year agenda items of the aforementioned hypothetical Presidents Bush, Rubio, or Cruz.

Okay, that’s funny. Sure Republicans have been talking about that, but they’ve been studiously avoiding it.

And what huge issue is good old Rich avoiding? Do a ctrl-F and try to find “illegal” or even “immigration” and you’ll find that Rich did not discuss this issue that was front and center in Trump’s campaign. You might also call it his signature issue.

But that is an issue only for racists, like me, Rich likes him some cheap labor. Hey, his garden ain’t gonna garden itself.

 

Let’s have a little high-larious interlude: Dynasty Fight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meghan McCain on Possible Chelsea Clinton Run: ‘What Fresh Hell Am I Living In?’

You’re in the one where Meghan McCain is considered a pundit and is paid to tell people what she ‘thinks’.

 

Bureaucrats Gone Wild!!!!!!!!!

The Chicago Police Department is investigating one of its officers after he helped three young girls found living in an abandoned home. The officer set up a GoFundMe page for the girls who were known as the Englewood Angels. The police department said the officer violated its policy by helping the girls…

Artz launched the effort (Gofundme) to raise money and supplies for the kids and the grandmother who agreed to take care of them. Dolores Anderson has a roof over her head and, for now, enough food and clothes to help raise her granddaughters who were found living in squalor just a few months ago…

Artz is accused of violating rule 52 which prohibits officers of seeking or soliciting contributions of any kind from anyone. The complaint against him was lodged by CPD Internal Affairs Commander Robert Klimas.

 

He had a box to check and check it he did!!!!!!

 

Saving New York From deBlasio!!

That’s the wrong formulation. You need to save NY from New Yorkers. They’re the ones who reelected the fool who spends all his time SJWing and not Mayoring. The guy who took their Big Gulps with extra salt. NYCers are the ones who voted in term limits and then reelected Bloomberg after he decided that there wouldn’t be term limits on him then elected de Commio.

 

New Zealand is focused, laser-like, on what’s important!

The local Māori tribe of Whanganui in the North Island has fought for the recognition of their river – the third-largest in New Zealand – as an ancestor for 140 years.

On Wednesday, hundreds of tribal representatives wept with joy when their bid to have their kin awarded legal status as a living entity was passed into law.

“The reason we have taken this approach is because we consider the river an ancestor and always have,” said Gerrard Albert, the lead negotiator for the Whanganui iwi [tribe].

Hey, at least they’re not still eating people.

So far as you know.

I would like the answer the most important question about this: Is the river a he or a she?

It’s a river. It’s gender is fluid!

*smack*

Sorry.

 

 

First gay cakes and now this!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? What the fuck?

A new business, run by a cake decorator…(was awarded) a Westland District Council project to build a $7 million sewage plant…

Sonomabatch. Can’t you just let them make cakes?

 

It’s like the Rose Bowl Parade except pornier.

Huge crowds flocked to the western Japanese city of Nagaoka Sunday to take part in a bizarre annual festival that sees women ride through the city streets on a giant wooden penis.

Dozens of newlywed women, some in traditional Japanese dress, sat atop the giant phallus which, according to tradition, brings marital bliss, fertility and good luck during the Hodare Festival held each year.

With an awesome gif that I can’t download or embed. Oh well.

 

Let’s end on a Decision.

On the one hand, may the force live long and prosper.

On the other hand, that’s an actual girl. No, really. It is.

 

When I went to NY last year I picked up my friend in Illinois, the ardent Dem. He told me he and his wife were coming to AZ in Feb or March. He showed up yesterday, out of the blue, and we hung out, that’s why I didn’t post. I had a bunch of links too.

He came down from Flagstaff to spend the afternoon in Mesa. We ate at a place called Blue Adobe in Mesa. It was okay, but not ‘authentic Mexican”. I’d call it California-Mexican. I’d rather eat at Filiberto’s. It tastes better and costs about 1/5 as much.

 

 

Dammit, the dog must have taken my socks!

bad-dog

It just keeps staying stupid out there. Whodathunk we’d go from the Funniest End of Civilization Ever to the Stupidest End of Civilization Ever so quickly?

I’ve been trying to miss football, but the NFL has figured out a way to keep me from missing it.

A week after Houston celebrated hosting Super Bowl LI, the NFL says the state’s proposed transgender bathroom bill could affect whether Texas gets to do so again.

In its first statement since Senate Bill 6 was filed in January, the NFL has warned it will take into account the civil rights law of states before it chooses future event locations.

They  refuse to allow me just to enjoy their game.

 

This is just cruel

He asked HS kids ditching school why they were protesting. They weren’t really sure but really, did anybody expect anything different? They’re against going to school and for ditching school.

I’ve been wanting to ask this question, how is Jesse Watters different from Stuttering John? O’Reilly sends Watters out to ambush people with questions they don’t want to answer, that’s exactly how Howard used Stuttering John. Although….I don’t think Jesse Watters has ever asked Ted Williams if he farted in a catcher’s face.

 

I’m a little embarrassed I had to see this NY Post article at Innocent Bystanders,  I must have missed it yesterday.

Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial alt-right extremist who is an outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.

Here, he tells Michael Kaplan his story — including why the backlash drove him to the right.

Dude’s in for a rough time. This is the de rigueur quote

I realized that, for the first time in my adult life, I was outside of the liberal bubble and looking in. What I saw was ugly, lock step, incurious and mean-spirited.

I’ve known a bunch of lefties, gay or not, who saw the same thing except they went back in. When we’re talking alone they’ll tell me that they’re afraid to go against their friends. They expect sympathy from me, they get confusion. How can you refuse to think for yourself?

Little bit of naivety

I hope to find out that it pays to keep an open mind.

And I hope that New Yorkers can be as open-minded and accepting of my new status as a conservative man as they’ve been about my sexual orientation.

Hope in one hand, jerk off in the other. See which hands gets sticky first.

 

I wonder if Dave Chappelle just destroyed his career (again)

Comedian Dave Chappelle has been prepping for his November 12 hosting slot on Saturday Night Live …

He was particularly agitated about what he believes was Clinton’s role in leaking a surreptitiously recorded conversation between Republican nominee Donald J. Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. “What I heard on that tape was gross,” Chappelle said. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.” He stated this had put him off a candidate he had already known was “not right.” He likened voting for her to a hypothetical situation of actress Halle Berry breaking wind in his face during sexual relations. “I’m still going to go for it,” he said. “But I wish she hadn’t done that thing.”

He notices one of the fake news things that all right (left) thinking people know to ignore.

Chappelle further shocked the New York crowd by defending Trump. He took issue with the media stating as fact that Trump had admitted committing sexual assault in the recorded conversation. “Sexual assault? It wasn’t. He said, ‘And when you’re a star, they let you do it.’ That phrase implies consent. I just don’t like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it.”

Yeah see, maybe nobody you know questioned it, but that doesn’t mean nobody questioned it.

Good luck with the whole, losing all your friends, thing though.

 

Hungary does not want  those refugees. Headline and subhed

Bounty hunters chasing immigrants on horses, a 110-mile razor fence and bans on new mosques: ANDREW MALONE reports from the EU country whose brutal crackdown on Muslim migrants makes Trump look liberal
Laszlo Toroczkai, 47, and his bounty hunters have caught hundreds of migrants
He is mayor of Asotthalom, Hungary, a small town that borders Serbia
During the refugee crisis, thousands poured in across the unprotected border

Apparently, they have some experience with Muslim invasions

It is a debate in which Hungary is utterly uncompromising. To understand why, one must understand how Hungary’s bitter opposition to Muslims, stretching back centuries to the invasion and occupation by Ottoman Muslim rulers for 150 years until 1699.

 

But they’ll take those other refugees.

Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban has offered to open up his country to refugees – but only those seeking sanctuary from the liberal policies of western Europe….

“Of course we can give shelter to the real refugees: Germans, Dutch, French, Italians; scared politicians and journalists; Christians who had to flee their own country; those people who want to find here the Europe that they lost at their home,” he noted to applause.

Okay, that’s funny until you realize it’s not funny at all.

 

Tsar Putin I and Sultan Erdogan are playing Risk and it’s going swimmingly.

Intense fighting continues in and around al-Bab, a town of 100,000 people in northern Syria, with the Free Syrian Army forces supported by the Turks entering from the north, while Syrian regime forces enter from the south…

Syria is now split into areas controlled by one of four factions; ISIL, the Syrian government, the Free Syrian army, and the Kurds. Al-Bab is special because it is the only place in Syria where all four have significant forces in close proximity.

I’m sure that’s going to work out well. The Free Syrian Army forces are a hodgepodge of murderous terrorist groups that form, split and reform with explosive regularity, each splinter group hates everybody not of their splinter group. The Kurds are hated and hate all the rest, the Syrian gov’t forces hate the rest and ISIS, of course, hates everybody not a believer in their murderous interpretation of Islam. Some of the Free Syrian Army folks were formerly part of ISIS, and probably will be again. Getting into a war in Syria is even more stupider than being in a land war in Asia.

 

I’ve been wondering if this is going to get Russia and Turkey in a war, more hoping actually.

Turkish military tanks were spotted supporting the Sultan Murad Brigade in clashes with forces loyal to the Assad regime in the village of Um Al-Zindin, Syria, south of the Islamic State-held al-Bab

These are peoples who’ve hated each other for thousands of years, adding in differing, murderous ideologies has just given them another reason to kill each other so no matter what the end game is going to be murderously confused.

 

Catalonia has another referendum on independence from Spain this year and Spain is acting all upset.

I have to wonder if all these referendums are failure theater or if they’re actually trying to accomplish it.

If Catalonia gets independent, can Basque independence be far behind? Will we see a Basque/Catalonian nation formed between Spain and France? Maybe two, smaller countries? Will we see a three sided civil war? Should be funnier than their last civil war, fewer Nazis.

 

Remember that fashion designer from the other day? I found some even more ridiculous looking outfits for guys!
