Are we actually nearing peak crazy? I mean, is it gonna stay crazy but start getting full endy and a whole lot less funny?

Via Paco, let’s start with the most ridiculous thing I could imagine.

Why didn’t they put out a statement distancing themselves from Rob Schneider movies? I mean, nazis are just not that big a threat to our civilization but we could see another Rob Schneider movie at any time!?!?!?!

 

Now the endy, it does have some funny with the crazy.

The Dems, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You set and their media arems are freaking out over Charlottesville, twisting it, fomenting violence, which is crazy and endy, but I’m actually not happy they’ve gotten off Russia/Comey/Flynn/Mueller! Now that’s funny. I’m actually pining for the ridiculousness of Hacking..Collusion…Obstruction of Justice!!!!

 

So the Dems have to Do Something!!!! stupid and violence-fomentious, what to do? What. To. Do?

Democrats move to formally censure Trump over Charlottesville

Why? You ask? You really should have the learned the lesson by now that you need to stop asking questions about Dems’ actions, they’re always answered with infuriatingly stupid answers.

House Democrats are introducing a formal resolution to denounce President Donald Trump for saying that “both sides” are to blame for a violent encounter between white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the activists who showed up to protest them. (emphasis me V)

Because he said the Dems’ Traveling Riot was at least partly to blame for the violence they showed up to start. How do you even respond to that?

 

All the local news shows keep saying it’s White Supremacists Being Violent, never even mentioning the fascist Anti-Fa fascists.

A smattering of battering (and assaulting) by the Mostly-Peaceful fascists Anti-Fa fascists.

Mostly Peaceful!

And who can forget this greatest hits! (as police watch)

This angry, violent disinformation campaign is out of hand and violently dangerous.

Is this from a playbook or is there some sort of plan going on?

They’ve been fomenting this for a long time, Obama spent most of his POTUSy trying to get us riled up and violent, now they’re accelerating it.
Is it just because they lost the election and this is how you win elections?

Is it because they’re trying to get more police-state powers
I mean, besides the obvious of undoing the last election they didn’t like, of course.

 

I’d say it’s not that centralized. I’d say it’s more a consensus using a playbook, but this does show that there might be a plan somewhere.

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn.  Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government.

Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network…

And we need to go from resistance to mobilizing to end the nightmare of the Trump/Pence regime. Right now these fascists, from Trump on down, are moving very quickly to hammer into place their fascist regime and this must be STOPPED. The organization Refuse Fascism has called for people to come into the streets and public squares and cities and towns across the country beginning on November 4 and stay in the streets day after day and night after night until the DEMAND is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO! For this to happen, everybody needs to be at August 19 regional conferences to organize and mobilize for this.

So they’re going to try to emulate the Philly Black Panthers nationwide.

The media is going to get to claim that Right Wingers Attacked Mostly Peaceful Defenders Of The Sanctity Of The Ballot Box as they show grandma getting her ass kicked by an SEIU thug.

Yay!

 

What they are managing to do is get their supporters going  absofuckinglutely infuckingsane. They might be getting them too riled up too soon, they can’t keep up this frenzy of insanity for more than 2 months, something’s gonna break.
Like grave-robbing.

A group of protesters who want the body of an alleged Ku Klux Klan leader removed from their city have broken the soil over the grave.

I mean, I could understand if they were going for that gold watch and Civil War sword he was buried with but doing it for hate is just fucking out of bounds.

 

I didn’t see Trump’s Panty-Wadding Press Conference, but here are some awesome quotes from it.

6) “I think [race relations have] gotten better or the same—look, they’ve been frayed for a long time, and you can ask President Obama about that, because he’d make speeches about it.”

7) “I think there’s blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there’s blame on both sides, and I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it, either. And if you reported it accurately, you would say it.”

8) “You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people—on both sides—you had people in that group—excuse me. Excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue, and the re-naming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

He really needs to pass out woobies when he talks to the press. Especially the Lying Liars who Fakenews at CNN. They get very butthurt.

I’m sure you all know this, but I just have to post it. He also said

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?”

High-Lariously Fucking Endy.

 A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities.

A bronze statue of George Washington ..

One of the greatest men to have ever lived. A man who was offered a kingship and said, “No thanks.”

 

How violently fomentious have our fine media betters become?

The Wash Post has gone from using anonymous sources to fake news and spread lies to calling for violence against Americans and our POTUS.

His paper’s latest contribution to wrecking this country is an editorial titled “Charlottesville showed that liberalism can’t defeat white supremacy. Only direct action can.”

It concludes with, “Start throwing rocks.”

“Resistance, be it forceful or clandestine, threatened or explicit, stands as our ‘rock.’ Rocks can look like armed self-defense or nonviolent direct-action campaigns,” N.D. B. Connolly, a history professor at Johns Hopkins who specializes in racism writes.

“In April 1968, amid a flurry of other ‘rocks,’ riots shook American cities following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It took that rolling unrest, not the promise of further economic growth, to spur President Lyndon Johnson and Congress to action.”

What I can’t understand is what they hope to accomplish?

Are they hoping their footsoldiers get their asses kicked so they can swoop in and get all Stasi on our asses?

Very scary.

 

Keep your fingers crossed! This might actually be our last hope since SMOD won’t get off his lazy asteroid.

THE Great Pyramid of Giza reveals the exact date the world will end…

Now an amateur stargazer claims to have “decoded” the Great Pyramid – and discovered it is a “date marker” that reveals when the apocalypse is coming.

Staggeringly, it matches a prophecy foretelling the End of Days in the Bible – and it’s next month…

His detailed analysis suggested Nibiru will first appear in the sky on September 23, 2017, and crash into Earth in October.

I’m a little leery about this though, we’re always All Gonna Die!!!!!!!!!!!!! but yet, we’re still alive.

 

I’m not defending this, I do understand it though.

We trust you’ll abide by those instructions from law enforcement in Germany, where more than 20 tons of chocolate treats have gone missing after thieves stole a refrigerated trailer packed with Nutella, Kinder Surprise eggs and other sweets.

In these troubled times you have to grab all the Nutella you can.

If I was investigating this I’d watch all the roads to Italy. Just a hunch.

 

I got sick of comeying, tried not to mueller but now I’m stuck watching them act as if some neo-nazis just started beating on random people who were in no way involved with any violence.

I’m gonna start with this, again, because that is one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in my lifetime. The police were not stopping this guy from being assaulted, during a fucking press conference, until after he was tackled. They observed multiple assaults and did not a fucking thing.

The fuckhead who hits him in the back and then raises his hands is a real piece of work.

Whoever the speaker is should sue the shit out of the city and state. I hope he does and he bankrupts both. Let their taxpayers rein in Gov Clintonista and the local fuckheads.

 

I’ve seen this linked a few places with people noting that the cops are calling Gov Clintonista a fucking liar.

Ummmm, he’s a Clintonista, of course he lied. You don’t even need proof to say that, it’s just axiomatic.

Butt hey’re ignoring the important parts.

“No, the State Police did not have inferior equipment,” Corinne Geller, Virginia State Police public relations manager, told the Free Beacon. “Our personnel are equipped, and were equipped, with the necessary protective and tactical gear for their safety and, obviously, to protect those that were in attendance of the event.”

So what you’re saying there Officer Fuckhead is that you were  prepared and you still did not a fucking thing? Why is that?

“There were physical barriers in place for folks to be able to use for their safety. We cannot tell people where to assemble, there’s freedom of assembly,”

Lying liar who fascists! The evil forces your footsoldiers attacked needed a permit they had to sue to get but you’re saying a large group of armed, masked thugs who came to mostly-peacefully stop speech they don’t like didn’t need a permit? Lying fuckhead.

The rule of law in America is dead as a fucking doornail.

 

Nother curious thing that looks very clintonian.

Almost at first contact, Charlottesville mayor Michael Signer and Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency and cancelled the demonstrators’ permits

I’d like to see some FOIAing of his email, I’m sure we’d see communications from Gov Clintonista setting that shit up. I’d be utterly unsurprised if CNN and the Wash Post were in on it too so they could know to ignore that the fascist anti-fa fascists came for the violence and stayed for the not getting stopped assaulting.

 

Not really all that unexpected or surprising for the NY Times to protect Gov Clintonista but it can be helpful to see how they lie and fakenews.

FAKENEWS NEW YORK TIMES: Totally Rewrites Charlottesville Story to Protect Gov. Terry McAuliffe

But of course.

So how do the mostly-peaceful fascists thank their ‘journalist’ cover?

Sunday night, a local CBS Photojournalist was attacked by Antifa protesters. The photojournalist was standing on the sidelines of the protest filming with his iPhone when he was attacked. He was not on duty at the time.

Just the way they deserve to be thanked. Bravo anti-fa fascists! Keep up the good work!

 

Speaking of good work keeping up, how many $billions did Obama give Iran for totally mostly-peaceful purposes?

Iran is preparing to send a flotilla of warships to the Atlantic Ocean following the announcement of a massive $500 million investment in war spending

Mostly-Peaceful!

Maybe Obama was listening to NY Times/Nobel Prize in Economics writer(s) who think sending our shit half-way round the world to blow it up helps the economy.  That makes more sense than that a POTUS knowingly armed our enemies to make them stronger.

Well, not so much ‘more sense’ as ‘sounds less fucking infuriatingly fucking horrific than the truth that our previous POTUS got the world all ready to rumble.’

 

I’m pretty well fucking sick of fucking Canada acting all “We’re So Much Better Than The US!!!!”, they’re not even as good at hypocrisy, but not for lack of trying.

“We are certainly looking for a better level playing field across North America on environmental protections,” Trudeau said last week.

However with Trump withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate change agreement and pledging to return the U.S. coal industry to its glory days, the White House and the Canadian government are far apart on many environmental issues.

Shouldn’t you be trying to bone France’s Macron?

Keep that in mind as we discuss Green Science (which is neither)

 

Since cars with batteries are charged via unicorn fart, that part is clean, clean, clean, but what about making them? It takes lithium.

Since Canada is all in on Green Science!!!!! (which is neither), they decided to mine lithium. Since lithium mining is very polluting, what to do, what to do?

Lithium mines escape pollution laws

Green Science (which is neither), killing Gaia, people and lowering our standard of living for decades while allowing smug, ignorant fuckheads like Prime Minister Ken Doll in Canada to act all smug and superior.

 

They’re also mining thorium, cadmium and some other toxic stuff that’s bad for Gaia and growing things, but since it’s Green Science!!!!! (which is neither), it’s A-OK.

I do wish Trump took requests, he should explain how we need to go to all battery vehicles and trade more with the extra-pollutiony, murderous, commie dictators in China and the hypocritical twats in Canada.

That way, our fine media betters would be forced to explain how batteries are bad for Gaia and flowers.

 

Related, here’s Green Science (which is neither) dishonesty!

They mention energy costs for producing the vehicles as if that’s all the pollution they emit.  Not sure how much it’s changed, but 6 or 8 years ago a regular Honda Civic was about the cleanest emission vehicle on the road. As my buddy noted, you couldn’t commit suicide with one, you’d just get a bad headache.

These obfuscators write this

Although hybrid vehicle production is more energy-intensive and results in higher production emissions, hybrid vehicles are still the greener choice overall. 

Just after writing this

n recent years, rare earth metals like lithium have been imported almost exclusively from China, which was able to lower its prices enough to monopolize the industry [source: Strickland]. One of the reasons China could sell lithium so cheaply was because it widely ignored environmental safeguards during the mining process. In the Bayan Obo region of China, for example, miners removed topsoil and extracted the gold-flecked metals using acids that entered the groundwater, destroying nearby agricultural land. (emphasis me in both paragraphs V)

Although I can understand their dishonesty, who gives a fuck if some Chinese serfs die from all the pollution and hunger after losing their farmland?

There are plenty more where they came from (like a billion) and we can’t have a China Is A Role Model For The US campaign if people are gonna nitpick about dead serfs and destroyed ecosystems.

Just ask anybody living in a former SSR (Hey NY Times Pulitzer Prize Winning Fakenewser, Walter Duranty!).

 

Where are we?

Important, Let’s Let Mike At Cold Fury Set It Up Instead, Update!!!!!!!!!!!! (act surprised when it gets set up again below)

OBLIGATORY MEALYMOUTHED DISCLAIMER: Sorry folks, ain’t gonna be one here. You can go to panty-soakers like Ramesh Ponnuru on Deface The Nation just now for that sort of pathetic, ineffectual groveling to satisfy whatever need for personal debasement and humiliation you may have. I won’t be issuing any harrumph-harrumph about how horrified I am by the uprising in Charlottesville, and the injury and death that resulted from a long-overdue confrontation with our Leftist tormentors.

Sure, I’d much rather nobody get killed or assaulted. But the Left dragged us all out of that illusory Safe Space long ago; that being the case, if anybody has to get beaten about the head and neck with truncheons or crunched underneath a car, I’d much rather it be them than us.

Read the whole thing, there’s a reason he wins blogging awards every year.

Now, back to our post!

I’ll let Wirecutter set it up.

We’re Here

 There was nothing haphazard about the violence that erupted today in this bucolic town in Virginia’s heartland. At about 10 a.m. today, at one of countless such confrontations, an angry mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters, many of them older and gray-haired, who had gathered near a church parking lot. On command from their leader, the young men charged and pummeled their ideological foes with abandon. One woman was hurled to the pavement, and the blood from her bruised head was instantly visible.

Standing nearby, an assortment of Virginia State Police troopers and Charlottesville police wearing protective gear watched silently from behind an array of metal barricades — and did nothing.

Where the police stand down to let violently thuggish fascists try to shut down speech they don’t agree with. Just as they did in Berkeley and Chicago and other places.

Where else are we? Or rather, what is Here like? Video showing that guy’s car being attacked before he drove into the crowd killing people.

Department of Memes reported that police officers in Charlottesville believed the driver was not acting maliciously, suggesting he was scared by the protesters on every side of his vehicle and he did not know what to do.

New shocking video has emerged that corroborates this theory…

To recap: The protesters were standing in the middle of the street, blocking traffic. The car was attacked with a blunt object resembling a baseball bat by a protester. The vehicle was not speeding until a the protester attacked and the mob of people closed in on the driver.

Oh that’s great. Are we going to have to defend some racist asshole?

Jebus. What with the media taking sides, we’re gonna have to.

That sucks.

Especially since, as there have been few repercussions for the violent fascist in the laughably named “Anti-Fa” black-shirt, masked brigade, they’re out in force today, trying to shut down speech they don’t like.

The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day afterviolent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured.

Counter-protesters — including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party — marched “in solidarity against hate,”  specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence” of the “far-right” organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags, yelled “f*ck America,” squirted police with silly-string, and burned the American flag.

There’s a lot of violence, hate and thuggery when certain groups get together against hate.

This is the shit sandwich on top of the cherry.

Seriously. The guy holding his hands up after punching the speaker in the back was a nice touch. Where were the police? Watching the show. Fucking assholes.
I keep forgetting that in Dem fiefs they’re told to stand down when fascists attack people whose speech their Dem masters don’t like.

That is one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in my lifetime. The police were not stopping this guy from being assaulted, during a fucking press conference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, until after he was tackled. They observed multiple assaults and did not a fucking thing.

That’s where the death of the rule of law is most obvious.

 

Since Dems like Obama and Hillary riled this up, you know Dems are going to be excusing it. No, not just the ones in the media, the elected fuckheads.

“I have a message to all the white supremist [sic] and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today … You came here today to hurt people and you did hurt people,” McAuliffe told reporters at a press conference Saturday night.

The governor repeatedly emphasized the violence of “nazis” but made no reference to violence by any left-wing group, despite being asked repeatedly about what role such groups may have played in Saturday’s melee. The implication was clear that the violence was an unavoidable result of far-right white identity political groups being allowed to hold a rally.

But a report on police conduct during and after the rally by ProPublica, a left-leaning investigative journalism non-profit, as well as eyewitness accounts by those who participated in the rally itself, have called the simplicity of this characterization into question. Both suggest mismanagement of police resources by political leadership may have exacerbated, rather than controlled, the violence surrounding the rally and the counter-protests, which included mainstream liberals and local faith-based “anti-racism” groups as well as radical leftist “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and “Anti-Fascist Action” (Antifa) outfits.

The violent Dem front-groups came to get their violence on, if they hadn’t started it it wouldn’t have happened.

Do you realize what this means? There are now people to hate more than Illinois Nazis! Whodaseen that coming?

I learned something new today!

No, not that Markos Moulitsas is a lying sack of hate and anger, but that he was involved in the founding of Vox.

The idiocy of that group makes so much more sense now.

 

I watched some local news last night and saw the end of a Trump presser where some fuckhead, ‘journalist’ asshole shouted, at his back, “Do you think you condemned the violence enough?”

And I saw today the Wash Post echoing that ‘question’. He didn’t condemn the violence enough. Jebus, don’t you fuckheads have to go count how many scoops of ice cream he’s having or something?

 

Let’s look back on when Baltimore was being rioted at by some of the same Dem-Approved, violent, fascist, hate-groups.

Reporters kept out of meeting between Obama and his pet-fascist, Lynch. Just reported, no shouted questions about how he needs to condemn shit.

Another link disappeared, but I wrote at the time

Important, Ironically Powerful Update! Here!

Obama, the nation’s first African-American president, has spoken in personal terms about police harassment. So far, he hasn’t spoken about the unrest in Baltimore, but White House officials say they’re considering releasing a statement to address the situation.

Okay, that’s hilarious. He’s thinking about maybe releasing a statement about Baltimore going up in flames and Minitrue apparently sees no problem with that.

As a city blew up, Obama was nowhere to be seen and now we have the fuckheaded, prejudiced, ill-educated, mis-educated, disinformation spreading media fakenewsing through their lying teeth to make sure ‘their’ side Wins!

 

They’re too fucking stupid to realize that nobody’s gonna win.
Let’s let Kurt Schlichter explain where many on the right are.

Conservatives Must Regulate Google And All of Silicon Valley Into Submission

That means Republicans at both the federal and the state level need to rein in the skinny-jeaned fascist social justice warriors who control Silicon Valley – and, to a growing extent, our society – through the kind of crushing regulation of these private business that we conservatives used to oppose.

They’re going to hate the new rules.

 

A couple years ago I would have been very against that. A year ago I would have kept my mouth shut.

Now? I still think it’s wrong, but I didn’t make the rules the left has decided upon, they did. I look forward to all the whining, mostly because I’ll be saving up spit. Unless they’re on fire, then I’ll save my spit and just point and laugh.

Of course, with the GOP leadership we have now, they’re much more likely to regulate people like me instead of those stalinist assholes so generally law-abiding, peaceful people are going to see that their gov’t is on the side of the thugs trying to destroy the fabric of our nation.

We’re getting closer and closer to the endgame our fine betters spent much of Obama’s reign of error trying to foment.

Yay! Methinks they’re going to find out what most of the rest of us know, it’s not gonna be pretty.

 

Arguing with headlines!!!!!!!!

Obamacare lies resurfacing

Ummm, no. Just because all our betters in DC were ignoring them doesn’t mean they went away. It means the rest of America was busy being fucked while they were ignored.

Speaking of ignoring important shit, How did the DNC IT guys get into the country? ‘

File that under “Questions nobody in our fine media is asking.  Questions our media will call you a hater for asking!”

I saw a bit on the local news about how only haters were against importing Indians via H1-B visas and those people who were upset about having to train their replacements? Obviously just whitely-privileged, men who were upset about losing their primacy!

 

Not much funny today, except the inherent funny in the way the Reality Based Community Who Prides Itself On Their Elitism are showing themselves to be lying, violent fuckheads who have no sense of history, no sense of what makes America an anomaly in the blood-soaked slavery that is human history and no sense of humor that does not involve sodomizing the children of people they don’t like.

Yeah, I’m worked up today. Watching the final nail in the coffin of the rule of law does that to me.

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

My opinion of her disciples.

Their opinion of  the matter.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Why?

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

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

 

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

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

Has CNN never heard of good cop/bad cop?

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

Here’s my favorite part.

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

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

Second favorite part

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

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

Jackass.

Speaking of jackasses:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Coup Coup

Kristolnacht keeps getting delayed.

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

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

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

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

Here’s the punchline

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

 

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

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

1:40 p.m.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

It burnssssssss!

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

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

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

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

3rd comment

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

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

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

 

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

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

I blame Trump. And the alt-right!

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

 

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

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

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

Right in the balls.

 

Eddie Murphy did it first.

He didn’t do it funnier though.

And its effects on the body politic.

Our fine lefty betters are now officially insane.

That was just before they fired the guy who questioned the leftist orthodoxy.

 

Planned Parenthood is insane.

“How do I talk to my preschooler about their body?” is a set of guidelines published by Planned Parenthood that encourages parents to talk to their young children about their genitals…

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

Most kids want to pretend they’re elves or wizard or something like that, this is nothing but Munchausen by trans-proxy syndrome. It’s always been depressing watching parents shove their delusions on their children, now it’s a Societal Good.

There are no good outcomes in that bullshit. It’s like ADHD, sure some kids have it, but not the 20% that are medicated to get them to sit down and shut up… diagnosed with it. Except this is even worse as, according to adult actions, the actual number is well under 1%.

Of course, abortionists are insane so they are thinking as if abortion doesn’t go far enough, we need retroactive abortion!

Those who held power over Charlie decided that his life was not worth living. They reached this judgment on the basis of his expected mental disability. They denied him treatment, and ordered his ventilator removed, not because of the burden of the treatment, but because of the burden of his life. In a cruel act proposed by doctors, approved by courts, cheered by the press, and blessed by certain high clerics, Charlie Gard was euthanized. It was euthanasia by omission, but it was euthanasia all the same.

Baal worship is alive and well. Maybe that’s why they’re so pissed off because the Golden Cow lost. False idols are all they have left since losing their tenuous grip on sanity.

 

I wonder how this affects the curve.

A University of Georgia professor has adopted a “stress reduction policy” that will allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by the ones they earned.

This is the bit that makes it just a little crazier.

Watson—a “Regents Professor” at the university, a title “bestowed by the Board of Regents on truly distinguished faculty”

I’m in favor of this actually, it allows employers to know which colleges’ degrees are utterly worthless because they’re awarded by crazy people.

It’s also a good representation of socialism, this debases the A received by the student who actually tried.

 

‘Journalist’ discovers useful idiots are not part of the ruling elite when socialism morphs into communism.

I had thought that being a foreign reporter protected me from the growing chaos in Venezuela. But with the country unraveling so fast, I was about to learn there was no way to remain insulated…

That’s just stupid, here’s where insanity rears its laughing head.

I was trying to make small talk with the men who had grabbed me when we pulled past a high, barbed wire-topped wall, and I glimpsed the logo of the secret police. Flooded with relief, I realized I hadn’t been kidnapped, just detained.

Oh yay! The secret police have kidnapped me! I’m saved!

Yeah see, Chavez’ secret policeman cum dictator does not really want accurate reports getting out. If you’re not going to explain how it’s all the fault of those ‘protestors’, what with their bleeding all over the place and demanding stuff like toilet paper and food they’re not your friends.

In the end, the secret police cut me loose a few hours after they arrested me, with a warning not to return to the city of Barinas. The burly men put me in the same black SUV and drove me to the airport, then watched with crossed arms as I boarded the plane to Caracas.

Showing how impervious willful ignorance and lack of sanity leads to self-delusion

Finally, this summer, I decided to leave the country on my own accord,

Of her own accord. I guess. She could have stayed and been murderously dictated at, but she decided, totally unrelatedly, to leave!

One definition of insanity is doing the same commie things over and over and expecting it to work this time.

This time, This Time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! communism is going to work!

 I suggested things might get back to normal before too long.

Not until they get a Pinochet to kill all the commies in the country.

 

Via David Thompson, we see insanity in Akbar Britain.

While that statement is arguably correct, it’s another way, it’s arguably insane to think it’s a good option.

It might be better than being under Sharia law, which appears to be the other option Brit pols want, but I prefer freedom. I’m monomaniacal about that sort of thing.

Speaking of which, I’ll quibble with this.

John Gill tried to do it right!

Capt Kirk was having none of it though. Like Communism, fascism always fails. Its only accomplishment, which is in dispute, was getting the trains to run on time in Italy. Its actual accomplishment is murdering a number of people within an order of magnitude of those murdered by commie dictators. That’s an accomplishment. Not a good one, but that’s all you get out of leftism. Murderous dictators.

Speaking of Crazy Talk!, I’ve been saying that we need to fire everybody in the DO”J” GS-12 and higher and replace them with Free Republic commenters. While it might be awesomely entertaining, I realized how crazy that is.

Judicial Watch announced it sent a notice-of-violation letter to the state of California and 11 of its counties threatening to sue in federal court if it does not clean its voter registration lists as mandated by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Both the NVRA and the federal Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls. The August 1 letter was sent on behalf of several Judicial Watch California supporters and the Election Integrity Project California, Inc.

We should just disband the entire DO”J” and replace them all with Judicial Watch!

I know, that looks like crazy talk!, but bear with me.

 In the letter, it is noted that public records indicate the following counties have more registered voters than voting-age citizens:

  • San Diego (138%)

  • San Francisco (114%)

  • Los Angeles (112%)

  • San Mateo (111%)

  • Solano (111%)

  • Yolo (110%)

  • Santa Cruz (109%)

  • Monterey (104%)

  • Imperial (102%)

  • Lassen (102%)

  • Stanislaus (102%)

Not so crazy now, huh?

Remember when Trump was a lying liar who lied because he noted that Hillary’s totals were padded with illegal voters? So crazy it might be true!

 

I’d say this is totally crazy.

For the first time in its history, the Second Amendment Foundation today issued a “travel advisory” to firearms owners to avoid going to California, warning law-abiding armed citizens that their civil rights could be in jeopardy due to that state’s restrictive gun control laws.

In CA they’re doing something surprising, they’re trying to use the law, socialist dictators usually pervert the law. In light of that, I’d have a warning about going to NJ where they will illegally take your legally owned guns if you’re legally carrying them while legally travelling through the states.

It’ll then take you years and a lot of money to get your property back from the thugs in NJ. If you’re lucky, your case will cause enough of a stink that Christie will throw you a bone… pardon you. But since he does not spend all his days pardoning people it would just be crazy to even drive through NJ with your legally owned property.

 

You can tell someone is an idiot or insane.

It was supposed to be a dazzling opportunity for the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra — a volunteer ensemble of professional and semiprofessional musicians led by Guido Lamell — to play the prestigious Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles for a fund-raiser. Mr. Lamell, music director of the orchestra, invited the conservative talk show host and columnist Dennis Prager as guest conductor for the event…

But that decision caused immediate outrage among some members of the symphony, and a number of them are refusing to play the fund-raiser…

Some are even encouraging others not to attend the concert.

How can anybody still think that all that talk of Tolerance by our fine Tolerant, Mostly-Peaceful friends is about tolerance for other points of view?

That’s beyond stupid all the way into delusion.

 

My neighbor in my old apt is a paranoid schizophrenic who is just paranoid with medication. It’s weird, he’s paranoid about all the wrong things but he thinks I’m too paranoid! No really, he does.

So the point, he makes less than $1,000/month in disability but keeps getting new credit cards. He must have close to $20k in credit card debt. There is no way in hell he can pay it all back. But he can still get another credit card whenever he wants, and does.

American consumers just hit a scary milestone.

They now collectively have the most outstanding revolving debt — often summarized as credit card debt — in U.S. history, according to a report Monday released by the Federal Reserve. Americans had $1.021 trillion in outstanding revolving credit in June 2017. This beats the previous record in April 2008, when consumers had a collective $1.02 trillion in outstanding credit revolving credit.

So who’s crazy, the people ignoring that giving too much credit to people who cannot possibly pay it back is a good idea or the crazy guy who keeps taking that money?

Let’s look at that definition of insanity, doing everything the same and expecting a different outcome. In the late 20s we had a problem with debt. We know where that led, in 2008 we had another problem with insane debt dragging us down.

And here we are, giving out too much credit and not expecting bad things to happen.

 

I’m not sure if this is like some NY Times’ writer’s “taxi driver” who is used to push an elitist point or if Rush’ chef is really this crazy/stupid.

It was the chef. The chef came in this morning about 10:15, and the chef is a huge Trumpist. The chef just loves Trump, and the chef is, “Did you see that rally last night? Did you see that speech? Did you see those people?”

I (Rush) said, “Yeah.”

“I mean, do you know those people in Washington, when they watch that, they’re just gonna have to come around. They’re gonna have to know that people love him.”

Really? Based on what reality? They hate us and they hate him. They already know we love him, that’s just proof that we’re too dim to run our own lives.

Rush is not insane, he’s finally realized the GOP is not on his side.

Ah, ah, ah, no. No. That, unfortunately, is not what will happen.” What happened already is the people in Washington who saw that rally in West Virginia last night hate Trump even more and are even more committed to getting rid of him, if that’s possible. This is standard operating procedure. This is human nature. And here’s why, folks.

Exactly. Human nature wins every time.

Rush also sees the doves in DC for who they are

Coup Coup

Not only is the D.C. swamp attempting to run a coup on President Trump to get him out of there, what they’re really trying to do is deny your choice of president. This is a genuine constitutional threat because what official Washington is really trying to do is ultimately claim it doesn’t matter who you vote for. If they don’t like it, they’re gonna do everything they can to nullify it or cancel it. The Constitution doesn’t matter.

We’re threatening their feed troughs and power over us, that’s something any self-respecting oligarch is going to have to quash.

 

McConnell’s insane if he thinks is going to get anybody but The Better And Smarter Than You apparatchiks to honk their horns and slap their fins.

In his first Kentucky appearance since the fake vote on the fake repeal of Obamacare last month, McConnell announced that fellow lying liar Lamar Alexander (R-TN) would be teaming up with Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) to create a bill that will continue using money we don’t have to subsidize insurance we don’t want until 2018.

If Murray’s name sounds familiar, it should. She’s one of the GOP’s favorite “go-to” Democrats when selling out on campaign promises. It was Murray who joined Paul Ryan a few years ago to pass the failed Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. Despite their promise to cut the budget, Ryan and Murray’s failed budget agreement increased spending, raised taxes, and threw out any attempt to balance the books for two years.

No arfs for you!

 

Speaking of which, this is not crazy.

 

In Sin City one of the bad guys says something like, “If they can make you lie for them they have you by the balls. They own you.”

It’s an old totalitarian trick – you break the will and the spirit of your enemies by forcing them to say, over and over again, what they and everyone knows to be false. After all, truth-telling is the province of the free and the proud, not the enslaved and the humiliated.

That’s why when my leftist family says, “You disagree with everybody, doesn’t that mean you’re wrong?”

I’ve been right far too often when my family declared me wrong for me to think any such thing. They still hate Ronnie Raygun for weakening America.

I harp on Apple and, to a lesser extent, Google, Yahoo and some others, in relation to doing business in China. I know most big businesses do so, but I think it’s crazy and stupid to expect it to work in any sort of long-run.

In the short run, Sainted Apple, Yahoo and Google help the murderous commie dictators in China be murderous dictators.

Tech giant Apple Inc. is increasingly caving to the demands of communist China..

Apple rang in the New Year by removing The New York Times app from its Chinese app store, complying with a request from Chinese government regulators. In mid-July, the company announced that it is building a data center in China to adhere to the country’s autocratic new cybersecurity laws, which gives China the ability to seize information on possible political dissidents and potentially pilfer foreign technology. Apple also removed Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), software essential for Chinese users who desire internet freedom and the ability to jump “the Great Firewall of China,” from its app store later last month, capitulating to Chinese government demands.

That’s cuz they’re commmie. China I mean, Apple is just helping them Try Communism Right!

 

Speaking of insanity…

Dateline: Memphis/Athens/Rome

Americans across the U.S. will see the country’s first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in 99 years. While millions of people get ready to watch the Aug. 21 eclipse, local authorities are the treating the event more like a natural disaster and are preparing for the worst.

No, not Memphis, Tennessee, Athens, Georgia and Rome, NY, I mean Memphis Egypt, circa 4,000 BC, Athens, Greece circa 500BC and Rome, Rome, circa 0AD.

People are people are people are fucking insane. If there’s one thing people are drawn toward it’s a good doomsday cult.

I do wonder if global worming will combine with the eclipse to Kill Us All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

I really need to start a lefty website. I could come up with idiocies that are positive reinforcement for lefties’ insanities and cash in on all that sweet, sweet, George Soros money. The fucking Kochs don’t give me shit.

 

Maybe I’m crazy, but I’m gonna disagree on this.

Today’s teenagers are more sheltered and less independent than previous generations, and the shifts correspond with the mainstreaming of smartphones around 2012. Instead of going out with friends and looking for every chance to get away from their parents, the post-Millennial generation is staying in and Snapchatting—and it’s making them less happy.

My nieces and nephews are all over 20, a couple approaching 30. When visiting my sisters I noticed that their kids did not play the way we did and it was long before they all had smart phones.

They were constantly underfoot, they wouldn’t leave us alone. I remember thinking how weird that was.

When I was a kid I spent most of my time trying to keep adults from knowing what I was doing. I left in the morning and came back for lunch, for dinner and then when it got dark. When we visited my uncles’ and aunts’ houses, I and my cousins immediately disappeared. We had serious trouble to get into, having parents around crimped my style. How could I get blood all over my clothes with them watching?

Adults do the same freaking thing with smartphones, how many of us have seen pics of a family eating dinner out and all of them looking at their smartphones? So that smartphone/unhappy trend is across age lines, hovering around your parents is a totally different, unhealthy (IMO), trend.

 

Okay, do you have to be crazy or stupid to use this site?

An Australian website allows internet users to test out passwords before using them to see if they were leaked in one of the many data breaches in recent years.

I wonder if you have to give them all your credit card numbers, expiration dates and three digit code on the back to see if they’ve been stolen too?

If a breach is detected in your online security when using HIBP, the site will specify what information is at risk (email addresses, passwords, credit cards etc.) so you can take appropriate action, such as changing passwords.

Heh. I wonder if they help you create a new, Totally Unbreakable!!!!! password?

Reminds me of a thumb drive I got. It was made in murderously commie China and it came with Unbreakable Security!!!!! Just click here and your drive will be totally secure!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe I was too paranoid, but I deleted that shit before I put anything on it. I tried to make sure the thing was totally blank, not sure if I did. Maybe I’m crazy but I don’t answer emails from Nigerian princes and I don’t accept security from commies.

 

So… who would be more upset. her blind date who shows up and sees this or the cat?

Fluffy is not amused.

 

I wonder, do you have to be a woman?

The company’s adverts showed a line-up of cartoon women in their underwear with the slogan “The whole city is looking for BREASTS”. It listed discounts for women depending on their cup size, with greater offers available to women with bigger busts.

Cuz with my bra size, I’d be eating for free! Moobs for the win!

How do you say, “I identify as a woman” in Mandarin?

 

State of my Gs.

I turn my tablet to airplane mode when I get done tubing but I left it on one night, all night. A couple days later I was at 75% of my usage. It took more than a week for me to get to 90% usage, so it seems I have enough Gs for a month, so long as I don’t forget to turn it off.

This month I’m going to run out of Gs and be forced to go to 2G or pay extra. I’ll probably pay the extra. 2G sucks. I still have most of my phone’s Gs so I have that going for me, but I’m surely going to run out long before my month starts over.

 

TV without cable.

I’m going to have to go to a bar to watch MNF and if I want to watch the Giants on an out of market deal, but I’m pretty happy.

I have maybe 10 channels I watch and they don’t all have the same commercial schedule. One Spanish language channel shows action movies. I watched The Expendables the other day, you lose not a thing by not understanding what they’re saying. Hell, it probably enhances the experience as the dialogue is mostly stupid.

I watch Grit most. during the afternoon they have Death Valley Days. About every 3rd or 4th show is filmed in Apache Junction. It’s funny, I can often spot where they are. It looks different but that’s mostly because they paved a lot of roads in the last 50 years.

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

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

 

Let’s see me being not too paranoid!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Notice also the Clinton playbook

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

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

 

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

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

 

This is just ignorant.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Wishful thinking from the AP

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

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

The chuckler

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Who did they poll? Missouri faculty and students?

 

Word of the Day: Stabulous!

 

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Drop in Unemployment Rate: All About the Rounding

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

 

Ace writes about Sessions going after leakers and sez

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Once there, they get what they want.

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

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

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

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

 

Coup Coup

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Mission Accomplished!

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

 

This one you would think we didn’t know,

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

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

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

 

Nother endy and funny deal.

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

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

Today’s Puritans have to pursue our happiness.

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

A Buttered. Roll.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sorry, pet peeve.
