Now, if it wasn’t Obama, I would be all in on this.

President Barack Obama “has told aides that he wants an offensive well under way before he leaves office that is aimed at routing the Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] from Raqqa, the group’s de facto capital in northern Syria,”the Times reported Wednesday, citing five senior US officials who wished to remain anonymous.

 

We’ve already seen that he’s trying to time the attack on Mosul for political purposes and now this.

I’d say this is a feature, not a bug, but Obama’s an idiot so he probably doesn’t realize it.

The plan would put the US on collision course with both Turkey and Syrian “rebels.”

Fuck Turkey. They want to screw us over, let them have fun.

Of course, Obama probably doesn’t know the Kurds have anything to do with Turkey. Cuz he’s an idiot.

As for the Syrian ‘rebels’, anything that anybody does is going to piss off that bucket of scorpions.

But this is a real problem.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Wednesday that it “received information from several reliable sources” that 3,000 Russian citizens were recruited by the country’s army and dispatched to “fight on Syrian territory.”

So what happens when one of the myriad of jihadi forces kills Russian citizens?

And what if it’s one of the “moderate rebels” we’re supporting?

And what if J Effin Kerry and Joe Freaking Biden were in charge?

You were thinking it was funny until that last bit, admit it.

 

Since there’s not much funny in that endy, let’s have some just funny.

This.

Getting a job in academe can be dog-eat-dog. But for Professor Beauregard Tirebiter, it was just dog-be-dog. The black goldendoodle has been hired by the University of Southern California as the institution’s first-ever full-time facility dog, according to USC News. (emphasis me V)

 

Professor Goldendoodle? I look forward to the ‘tennis balls for grades’ scandal.

With one of my favorite corrections ever.

Note: Earlier versions of the USC News story and this story reported that the animal was academe’s first full-time facility dog. Both posts have since been updated to reflect that he is one of several.

But what about people who are afraid of dogs or who don’t like dogs? Are they as shit out of luck as they deserve?

No! Because growing up is optional today!

College students at a California campus got to play in an “adult ball pit” as part of an event to teach them to avoid certain phrases that could hurt people’s feelings.

There are no outcomes from this where I see the people ‘educated’ by that sort of system ever being a net plus to our civilization.

 

Who you gonna believe?

Russia or your lying eyes?

In Syria, during the cease-fire where firing never actually ceased, the UN finally sent in their convoy to aid rebels under siege by the Syrians. What happened?

The aid convoy was hit Monday night in the area of Urum al-Kubra, west of Aleppo, prompting the United Nations to halt its aid operations in Syria.

Yeah, about what you’d expect. So was it Syria or Russia doing the blowing up?

Russia denies it was responsible and says that terrorists carried out the attack.

Yeah, about that.

“All of our information indicates clearly that this was an airstrike. That means there only could have been two entities responsible,” Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said Tuesday night, naming Moscow and the Syrian regime.

Although it’s sorta funny that I believe the Obama admin and the UN, but it is against the Syrians and Russians.

In another area of Russia’s warmongering, the Ukrainians are refusing to believe their lying eyes.

 

Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has passed a resolution to outlaw recent elections to the Russian State Duma, (legislature in Crimea V)

Okay, so far so good. Letting the Russians know what they think of them. But then….

The Rada stresses that Russia illegitimately opened polling stations during the State Duma elections in the temporarily occupied territory of the Ukrainian Autonomous Republic of Crimea

Temporary? I guess. In the sense that Germany had temporary control of France in the 40s. Unfortunately, Patton ain’t around these days.

 

The funniest part of this bit about the terrorist in Minnesota is that I’m pretty sure this is supposed to comfort me.

…Adan was more into sports than religion, describing him as “the most assimilated kid in the neighborhood.”

“He was an A student. He was a tutor. He was employed,”…

…Adan’s parents and was told Adan went to the mall to pick up an iPhone. Yusuf said Adan seemed happy when he left the home, and that was the last time his parents saw him.

Somehow that does not give me the warm and fuzzies.

Oh, and this is darn funny.

If the stabbings are ultimately deemed a terrorist act, it would be the first carried out by a Somali on US soil.

Well, if the Obama admin and the “Justice” Dept declare it “not terrorism”, well, that’s enough for my. I never believed my lying eye anyway.

 

Disrespectful Float Disrespects President!!!!!!

bushhitler2

Oh wait, not that one. That one was perfectly okay.

A picture of the float was submitted to NewsChannel 10 by a viewer. In the photo, a man wearing a President Obama mask is shown waving to the crowd as the float passes by.

The Obama look-a-like is also barricaded inside a makeshift prison alongside a faux Hillary Clinton.

Well that’s different. How dare they put the God-President and the Golden Cow in prison where they totally don’t belong!!!!!

 

The Clinton Foundation isn’t a pay-for-play money-laundering service, it Saves Lives!!!!!!!

You want to debate foundations and charities? One candidate’s family foundation has saved countless lives around the world

 

How could anybody deny that?

The Clinton Foundation was flagged by the Charity Navigator watchdog last year, which placed the Clintons’ charity on a “watch list” because of its “atypical business model.

I guess ‘atypical’ is a euphemism for “money-laundering scam. But they do give money to charity!!!!!! It saves lives!!!!!!!

The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative….

Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The most troubling revelations concern the Clinton Foundation’s vigorous promotion of Ranbaxy despite mounting evidence the Indian firm had persistently poor quality control and attempted to cover it up through either faulty or fraudulent reporting to the FDA.

It is unclear at this juncture how many AIDS patients received the “watered-down” drugs.

 

So who you gonna believe? Obama and the Clintons or your lying eyes?

 

A mea wronga. I figured CNN would be all over the Tulsa shooting, but they haven’t. Charlotte is blowing up, but I haven’t noticed CNN egging it on.

A black police officer shot an armed black man at an apartment complex Tuesday, authorities said, prompting angry street protests late into the night.

They closed down interstate 85, looting trucks there

 

Not really funny, but it is

 

It was actually, “Guns Up Don’t Shoot” but they aren’t believing their lying eyes.

 

They’re attacking news crews, which I have to admit I find very karmic..

 

An Update: The Tulsa shooting is look a little different as we hear more about the guy.

There were warrants (plural) for his arrest and he had a long record, including being convicted of resisting arrest and charged with attacking cops and a few gun crimes.

The cops also say they found PCP in his vehicle. That’s another drug like meth that makes the people taking it freaking crazy, except with meth, they’ve usually been partying for a long time before they get crazy so they’re too weak to be all that scary.

 

For some values of “American”…. and “values”.

 

Apartheid Tourism! Instead of going to South Africa where the ruling tribe was white, they go to Cuba where the ruling tribe is a murderous, commie dictatorship.

It’s not just the flood of Americans itching to see Cuba “before it changes” that is causing a spike in tourist numbers.

Canadians and Europeans are flocking to the island slave plantation in greater numbers due to the absence of Islamist terrorists in the Castro Kingdom.

In other words, fear of Islamic terrorism in other tourist destinations is enriching King Raul and his cronies.

That’s sorta funny, murderous Islamic terrorists, who cannot be named, are causing tourism to stop going to France and Egypt and head to a murderous, commie, hellhole.

Helpfully illustrated.

look-how-happy

Look how happy them darkies are, smiling and singing in the fields in the hotel.

 

Let’s look at another example of making sure Americans stop being so racist and intolerant!

I wonder if that woman would be so ‘tolerant’ if someone took a broken piece of glass to her hoo-ha.

 

Let’s interrupt our post for this surprising stating of the blatantly obvious!

Bill Clinton admitted Monday that some Clinton Foundation donors might have given money to the charity in the hopes of getting official favors.

Where he says, “some”, read ‘all’.

Bill Clinton is actually cracking me up. As First Dude he would be very damn entertaining as he really doesn’t give a shit anymore.

Okay, this one is awesome. It’s about GOP establishment pricks, as exemplified by Bushes, voting for Hillary! but that’t not what’s awesome.

What’s awesome is that it’s about a Bush telling a Kennedy he was voting for a Clinton.

Three political dynasties coming together is exactly what America is all about!

 

The NY Post, along with the best headline writers in the country, are doing the journalism Minitrue, and much of Foxnews (Hey Shep!), is refusing to do.

Here they are noticing the utter dishonesty of our…Obama’s gov’t.

The Federal Reserve had better be careful if it uses the large jump in household income reported last week by the Census Bureau as the deciding factor in whether or not to raise interest rates.

Those Census figures — like a lot of other numbers that come from that government agency — are BS. A joke, at best. Fraud, at worst.

So why are they saying that?

Income increased as much as it did only because Census two years ago altered the way the figure is calculated, including a massive change in how much “income” households derived from making withdrawals from their own retirement accounts. The change boosted estimates.

Eating your seed corn is now classified as “income”.

 

Not really related, but let’s watch a bucket of scorpions play together!

Over the last several weeks, a number of reports have come out of Syria predicting an imminent merger between Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, the rebranded former Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, and other powerful rebel groups….

Rebel groups have been trying for years to overcome their differences and form a united front against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Most of these attempts adopted a graduate integration strategy, as was the case with the Islamic Front and the Levant Front. Other smaller rebel bands have opted to be absorbed into more powerful groups, such as when Suqour al-Sham members joined Ahrar al-Sham. Jabhat al-Nusra had pursued a similar strategy, hoping to entice Ahrar al-Sham and other groups within Jaysh al-Fatah, an alliance of Islamist militant groups, into a merger. However, Nusra’s constant refusal to split with Al-Qaeda hindered such attempts

 

So what makes a rebel “moderate”?

The rebranded Jabhat Fatah al-Sham’s decision to publicly sever ties with Al-Qaeda in August and better integrate within Syrian rebel groups gave new impetus to such merger efforts

That’s the coalition of ‘moderate rebels’.

 

“Autocorrect” for the win!

betterrichter

We should totally replace the Richter Scale.

Helpfully illustrated

(more…)

Wow, today has been a roller coaster ride of smirt duplomacy.

Important, Near The Beginning Of The Post Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BREAKING: Obama administration official expresses US regret for ‘unintentional loss of life’ after airstrike on Syrian forces.

So even the idjits and aceholes in the State Dept want us to kill the Syrian thugocrat and his minions and this idiot “regrets” killing his murderous enforcers?

A real US President would “Regret not killing more of the bastards”, but we’re stuck with him.

 

Now, back to our post. Pretend the next item is the “First” one.

 

First, and not related to Obama’s smirt duhplomacy, WTF is Colin Powell doing?

In the March 2015 missives — which reveal information the Jewish state has long sought to keep under wraps — Powell wrote to Democratic Party donor…

“Negotiators can’t get what he wants. Anyway, Iranians can’t use one [a nuclear weapon] if they finally make one. The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran

Uh…yay?

Unfuckingbelievable. Who does he think he is? Hillary!? Why is he writing that to someone without security clearance? That guy could have forwarded it to anybody. Why is he writing that at all? What a maroon.

 

The country we’re supposed to look to for how to act

President Obama spoke glowingly Wednesday about Chinese President Xi Jinping and China’s “can-do” spirit.

 

So what’s that can-do spirit can-doing?

He had woken to pins being pushed into his nails before he was forced to stand still in a yard for some 18 hours. If he moved, he was beaten viciously and within an inch of his life….

That was a typical day for Liu during a lengthy stint in a series of Beijing detention centers and labor camps between 2006 and 2009.

There, he was subjected to electric shocks, medical tests, forced feedings, beatings, violent sexual assaults and other barbaric forms of torture designed by prison guards to humiliate and inflict maximum pain….

But perhaps just as shocking is that the Chinese government has been carrying out these human rights atrocities — including forced organ removal for harvesting purposes— on innocent citizens and convicted criminals for the best part of the past two decades. And it’s still happening today.

Ummm, Yay?

This question gets me.

What is happening and why?

We just got done reading about what, as to why?…  They’re murderous commie dictators, how hard is that to understand?

 

The German brand of smirt duhplomacy is bearing fruit! (poisoned, natch)

Refugees and neo-Nazis battled it out on the streets of an east German town on Wednesday night with police fighting to save the migrants outnumbered five to one.

Yay?!!?!?!

This bit is sorta funny.

But police said the asylum seekers started the confrontation – and later hurled bottles at the police trying to save them from a beating.

These people do not want to get the Germans riled, they just don’t understand them. You misread the Germans at your peril.

Heh

A man identifying himself as Mehdi from Morocco later showed reporters a cut he says he received during the violent attacks

Awww, poor baby. Didumms get a boo-boo? Check out the picture, he haz sad face.

 

Obama’s smirt duhplomacy is bound and determined to prove his statement that we can handle a few terrorist attacks here on our soil.

A device exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey, Saturday morning as about 5,000 runners were set to participate in a 5k Marine charity race and police

Yay team jihadi!?

I denounce my islamophobia for immediately assuming this attack that has all the earmarks of jihadi attacks (IED attacking our military), is in fact a jihadi attack, how dare I want to stay alive when mostly-peaceful members of The Religion Of Peace don’t want me to be that way?

Luckily, the race was starting late so nobody was killed. And that’s why you’re never on time for anything.

I sincerely hope that there are lots of people who, unlike Obama, the “Justice” Dept and the rest of the Democratic party, are taking this very fucking seriously. If not, there will be very bad things.

We cannot have Dem-favored groups killing the rest of us,  like the BLM types killing police and this, so I’m sure Minitrue is On The Job!

Last and most certainly not least, what the hell is going with this? Obama and Kerry, being idiots, gave the Russians a huge club over our heads with their idiotic ‘cease-fire’ deal and now Tsar Putin I is acting frisky.

Moscow has called an urgent UN Security Council meeting after US-led coalition hit Syrian forces, killing 62 soldiers and wounding 100 more. The Russian FM spokeswoman blasted Washington over the indiscriminate airstrike that she said serves the interests of ISIS terrorists.

There has to be a reason for them calling the UNSC otherwise they’d just rhetorically bitch-slap Obama  in public and make loud noises.

This bit is funny but not at all funny. According to Russia,

Immediately after the airstrike by coalition planes, Islamic State militants launched their offensive,”

Obama does like to fight both sides of any war.

Now, I trust our military a lot more than I trust Obama or even the Russians, so I would be utterly unsurprised if they made the whole thing up (The Russians, not Obama, he doesn’t care enough about Syria to talk about it anymore.) just to engineer a crisis.

Now, what sort of crisis needs a UN Security Council meeting?

Who’s making up the UNSC this year? Glad I asked.

The permanent 5 are China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States, so we have one ally there and one ‘ally’ who’s boned every ally they’ve ever had and two enemies.

Who else?

Angola (probably not much help or hindrance)
Egypt (oh yay!)
Japan  (ally Obama’s pissed off)
Malaysia  (Not too thrilled with fighters of islamic terrorism)
New Zealand  (not too thrilled with warmongers, like the US for instance)
Senegal  (former French colony, which usually means ‘current French colony they pretended to give up’, not sure what they’ll say but who cares?)
Spain  (Ran away from terrorism long ago, they ain’t rocking no boats)
Ukraine  (already on the hit list of Russia, so they have nothing to lose)
Uruguay (generally friendly with us, recognizes “Palestine” as a nation, friendly with Venezuela so anybody’s guess. Of course, with our Smirt Duhplomacy crew On The Job!!!! they’re probably not going to be any help even if they could be any help)
Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) (Oh yay. While Obama likes them better than he likes America, they’re busy trashing us)

So we have Japan on our side, Ukraine probably, but Obama’s pissed them both off so they’re not sticking their necks out for us, some that will help Russia in a confrontation with most not really mattering much.

So what the hell is Russia’s deal?

Team Murderous Dictator has been busy what with Tsar Putin I’s visit to Ukraine to pep-talk his military there, the Norks throwing rockets and nukes around, China stepping up the tempo in the South China Sea, with help from Russia,  Iranian proxy getting read in the Golan Heights to attack Israel .

 

Very, very, very, very scary.

Just to get ahead of Team Minitrue…..

I blame Trump and his divisive rhetoric!

I’ve always liked side B of News of the World much more than side A

 

So, is this a criminal returning to the scene of the crime or is Tsar Putin I going to give a pep talk, ala King Edward V, prior to the coming invasion?

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev arrived in occupied Crimea.

It’s not invasion season in the area, but who knows? They have to realize that the next POTUS, either Hillary! or Trump, will have more balls than Obama.

This one has so many ridiculosities in it that I can’t figure out if it’s satire or real. It’s about the “cease fire” in Syria that apparently, people are still pretending is real.

First, we have this

However, two aid convoys have idled along the Turkish-Syrian border since Monday as the UN waits… for Damascus to grant official approval allowing the entry of the relief trucks.

 

So they’re waiting for permission from a murderous dictator, who’s pissed on every “Red Line” Obama keeps setting, to give them permission to resupply the people he has under siege? Seriously?

More

The Castello Road has been at the center of the US-Russia brokered cessation of hostilities in Syria, which stipulates not only a freeze on fighting but also the shipment of relief supplies to eastern Aleppo.

“Your shoelaces are untied!”….

As plans for the Aleppo aid delivery hang in the balance, threatening the US-Russian-backed cessation of hostilities

So the Syrians dropping 50-gallon drums loaded with explosives and jagged pieces of shit-dipped metal isn’t a violation of the cease-fire but failure to give aid is? Ummmmm, ceasing fire is the first prerequisite of a cease-fire. It’s right there in the name! That’s the biggest reason I think this might be satire.

They Syrians want some of that sweet, sweet aid too.

Regime loyalists in two towns north of Aleppo have protested against allowing aid into opposition-held eastern Aleppo until relief shipments were also dispatched to encircled areas of the Idlib province

I’m actually on their side, if you’re going to give aid to one set of murderous jihadis, why not give it to the another set of murderous assholes? The more energy spent on killing each other in Syria the less they have to use elsewhere.

 

The EUnuchs are not amused!

The panel – titled “Refugees, Populism, Brexit – Is the EU coming apart? – was composed of (Eunuchs, V)….

He added that modern issues “cannot be solved on the basis of the nation-state. I think our British friends will find that out the hard way.”…

 

No, we need unelected oligarchs to rule us!!!! Something totally new!!!!! Since it’s new we need a new name!!! We can call it the Holy… ummm… Gaian Roman Empire!

Unelected, entitled, better than we oligarchs!

…British politician and pro-Brexit campaigner Michael Howard, criticized the panel for suggesting that xenophobia was the root of both Brexit and Europe’s apparent disintegration.

“It’s about the will of the people,” Howard said.

the darkest forces that exist on our continent” were the driving force behind the move towards disintegration.

I agree. Except for a little blip in the 19th and 20th century, Europeans are not amused by freedom loving people. That’s why there’s an America.

I have to agree with this too.

“You cannot imagine Europe without migration

Exactly, Goths, Huns, Saxons, Celts… the list goes on and on. Now we have the next set of invaders from north Africa and the Middle East instead of the steppes, it’s just a typical historic pattern that’s happened since long before Homer was singing for his supper.

 

We are on the defensive,” said Barroso during his opening remarks, regarding the project for a united Europe. Political parties that have “bashed Europe for 30 years” laid the ground for events like Brexit, he said.

No, you’re offensive. But as for the rest of the remark; so for 30 years people have been bashing a EUnuchstan that only formed in 1992? Or were you talking about this?

The French President, Charles de Gaulle, has for a second time said he will veto Britain’s application to join the Common Market.He warned France’s five partners in the European Economic Community (EEC) that if they tried to impose British membership on France it would result in the break-up of the community.

Damn unhelpful types.

I forget who said it, but we really are living in a deeply stupid time.

Okay, this one makes me laugh. A Spanish town is putting artistic representations of shit around their town to get dog owners to clean up after their dogs. Someone stole their giant pile of inflatable merde. They were just begging for it to be ripped off. It’s awesome looking.  The pic at that link makes it look like merde blanco, but if you click to the Spanish language link, you’ll see it’s merde marrón. So if you see a huge pile of inflatable shit, call Spain.

merde-marron

 

Which lets us seg our ue to America! There are like a billion yard sales around here every weekend but I am pretty depressed I missed this one.

ABC 15 reported the (Chic-Fil-A) cow was spotted in a backyard on Monday. The owner reportedly told police he purchased it at a garage sale over the weekend believing it was a bounce house.

The inflatable cow was initially stolen from out of the back of a pickup truck at a local event on Sept. 4.

Now I’m going to have to go to Spanish yard sales to see if I can find Merde Grande.

 

I’m calling Hillary Clinton on this one. So the entitled millionaire from the Broncos who’s pissing on America said this

I was in Miami with three others at a restaurant and there was a shooting.

We began to leave the only way we knew, but there was a lady in regular street clothes directing traffic, telling us, “Go this way, go this way!” At a serious, scary moment a lady I didn’t know was telling me which way to go, and I didn’t trust it.

We went our own way, and she yelled to the cops, “Stop him! Get him!” When I turned around, about five officers rushed toward me to take me down. They tried to take me down up top, then they tried to grab my legs. One of the cops pointed a Taser at my chest. They handcuffed me and I heard one say, “Take him in for resisting.”

I was in the back of the police car headed to the station when one of the officers radioes in and said, “Bring him back.” They told me, “Look, we’re not going to take you in as long as you keep this between us.”

I hope Miami cops sue the shit out of that clintonian sack of America-hate. Hmmmm, maybe he took Merde Grande thinking it was an homage to him?

An ongoing series, starting in the 70s.

Taxpaying New Yorkers are leaving in droves for other states, according to a new study.

 

I watched GE, Carrier, IBM, Oneida Silver, Corningware, Xerox, Veeshir and more leave that state for freer pastures over the last 40 years. Now, in the age of the intertubes, you don’t need to live anywhere special to conduct financial stuff, which means that Wall St. is now online.

It’s too bad. Upstate NY was always screwed up but still a cool place to live if you didn’t mind snow and cold. It has mountains, lakes, beaches, amusement parks, farms, the Erie Canal and lots of industry. Now, it has shopping and welfare.

 

I love this one.

TrumpLeaks is an effort to uncover unreported video or audio of Donald Trump so voters can have access to the Donald Trump who existed before running for president and before his recent affinity for teleprompters.

 

Like Hillary!, Trump has been in the public eye for decades. Unlike Hillary! he does not hide and lie his way through life with a compliant media aiding and abetting his cover-ups. All the dirt on him as been tabloid fodder forever.

The funniest part is this bit that proves what I just wrote

When it comes to Donald Trump, we already have video of interviews where he discussed his preferred sexual positions, said “I would love to be a well-educated black, because I really believe they do have an actual advantage today” and declared “putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.” Given Trump’s long career as a celebrity and provocateur, there’s certainly more where that came from.

If we want we can know his favorite sexual position (by “we” I mean ‘you’, I don’t wanna know), is there really anything we don’t already know about him?

Well, except what he’d do as POTUS, but the only way we’ll find that out is to elect him.

 

We do know all about Hillary! in general (there’s a reason “clintonian” is a dysphemism for lying)  even as her compliant media shields us from knowing the details of her mendacity.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges

Every time you think you’ve plumbed the depths of the Clintons’ scumbaggery, you find out they’re worse.

 

Eh, at least I have a chuckler to end on today.

Only Stormtroopers are so precious!

Holy Moley!

 

That’s a video of the streets of Dhaka in Bangladesh where the sacrificing for Eid is in full swing.

Huge swathes of animal sacrifices marking the Islamic festival Eid al-Adha turned the streets of Bangladesh’s capital into rivers of blood.

Authorities in Dhaka had designated areas in the city where residents could slaughter animals, but heavy downpours Tuesday rendered them out of action.

Instead, Muslims took to car parks, garages and alleyways to traditionally mark Eid al-Adha – or the Feast of Sacrifice – by slaughtering livestock and when the blood flowed into the streets, it turned them red.

That’s a lot of blood in that water. What gets me is people walking through it. Check out the pics at the link.

Via Doug Ross’ site.

 

Think of it as a preview of the upcoming Battle For Mosul where the streets will run with blood too.

The United States has increased its forces in Iraq by almost 500 troops in the last week to support the operation to take Mosul from the Islamic State group, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday.

ISIS are a bunch of murderous/suicidal, evil bastards who would think nothing of destroying the city as they fight. They’re planning on it.

Recall, they’re the ones who split off from al Quaeda because they’re a bunch of pussies and we know how al Quaeda acted in Fallujah.  And that’s when we got most of the non-jihadi folks to leave the city. The people in Mosul do not have that option.

Of course, with Obama in charge, you know it’s going to be needlessly bloody.

Some U.S. officers in Baghdad believe the Obama administration is rushing plans for a Mosul offensive so it takes place before the November presidential election, a retired general says.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael D. Barbero said his contacts in Baghdad have relayed the concerns to him, fearing there is now an “artificial timeline” for what promises to be by far the toughest battle in the war against the Islamic State inIraq.

.

Nothing like telling your enemy when you’re going to attack.

Excerpt from a speech by Roosevelt, June 2, 1944.

…we shall be invading the coast of France, not at the Pas de Calais as the Nazis expect but at Normandy to surprise the Nazis!!! And we shall be invading in a few days!!! Beginning our task of driving the Nazis from their conquests on the European continent!!!!

Well, that would have been the speech if he was an idiot like Obama.

As I’m Writing The Post Update!!!!!!

Hannity is on talking about Trump’s rising poll numbers and I’m pretty sure he’s beating off under the desk as he talks about it.

Now, back to the post as it’s in progress!

 

Australia had their big gun-grab where it’s very difficult to own any guns anymore, so how’s that working out for them?

Crimes associated with firearm possession have also more than doubled, driven by the easy availability of handguns, semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and, increasingly, machine guns, that are smuggled into the country or stolen from licensed owners.”

The machine gun are almost definitely smuggled in as you cannot own a machine gun in Australia.

So gun-grabbing didn’t work, what to do, what to do?

Gun-controlled Australia is witnessing gun crime at such high levels that state and federal officials are pushing new controls that will do everything from enact a second national gun buyback to increase sentences for gun crime and illegal gun possession.

Make it more illegaler!!!!!!

Huh, I can’t figure that out.  Gun control has worked so well in places in America that have tried it, like Chicago,

chalkie-september-16

Britain banned evil guns, how’s that worked out for them?

The West Midlands is STILL the nation’s gun crime capital – and it’s getting worse…

These were all cases where firearms were actually used (emphasis me, V) rather than just possessed, including firing them, threatening others with them or using them as a club-like weapon.

It means that there were 20 offences for every 100,000 people in the region last year, or one for every 5,000 residents.

Not far behind was London with 19.4 per 100,000.

Greater Manchester had the third-highest rate in the country with 16.0 gun crimes per 100,000.

Read more: Dublin cops want machine guns as brutal gang war kills two

When you ban guns, only criminals will have guns.

That’s win/win for our fine political betters. They turn generally law-abiding people into either criminals or disarmed victims, both leading to reduced freedom as cops need to ignore other Constitutional amendments because of the rise in crime. Like “Stop and Frisk” where cops in NY were just stopping random folks for no reason except they felt like it and it was necessary because of all the gun crime. Cuz guns are illegal so the criminals know their victims are unarmed.

 

I’m trying to figure out what is up with this story.

She was in for a rude awakening when she realized her 5-year-old kindergarten student had brought 30 packets of heroin to school Monday, officials said.

He brought enough for everybody so I don’t get the problem.

 

Caballero update!

I finally got it back today! It runs freaking great, sounds great, the transmission slips like mad so I can’t get on it!

Sonomogun. The first idiot I thought was a good mechanic 4 months ago told me I had a 4L60 transmission.

I just found out that a 4L60 has lots of electronics hanging off it for computer control. Mine has one (1) wire on it. Apparently something to do with kickdown.

The guy who put it together told me I have a 700r4 transmission, so I have to replace the torque converter.

Son of a bitch.

At least now I have a guy I can trust who can get that done in one day once I get the right torque converter.
The worst part is that I knew this guy but he has a muffler place. He’s done exhaust and brake work for me but I didn’t think of him as an engine guy. His father is a big motorhead who has a shop in Globe but he came to Mesa to work on my car.

I should have known, he has a Toyota Corolla he took the body off and replaced it with a body that looks like a huge muffler. It’s pretty cool, if you’re a muffler guy I guess.

Which actually works out, I’m supposed to drive like a grandma for 500 miles to break in the engine and I surely can’t stomp on it as it sits.

I cannot drive like a grandma, it goes against everything I stand for. When I was 16 I had a hitch-hiker refuse to get in my car, he had heard about me. If I hadn’t had a ’72 Dart with a 198 cubic inch engine with a whopping 100 HP I would have been wrapped around a tree by the time I was 16 3/4.

As it was, when driving on mountain roads with “no speed limit”, which meant 55 at the time, I would get the car to 60 (0-60 measured by sundial) and keep it there no matter what the road did.

Gila Muffler in Mesa did a great job, taking a car that had two people work on it before him and figuring out what was done, what needed to be done and what needed to be redone.

I actually paid him more than he asked as I thought he was undercharging me and I wanted him thinking happy thoughts about me when I need more work.

If you’re in the East Valley near Phoenix, I suggest you use Gila Muffler. Good, honest mechanics are hard to find.

On the east coast, I have a few friends who are mechanics so I haven’t had to worry about being ripped off since the 80s.

 

I just can’t figure out a title, just like yesterday. I might be the only person who gets a laugh out of my headlines, but I usually do get that laugh.

Oh well, let’s tube.

Will Syria become a battleground between Turkey and the Kurds?

Turkish troops and special forces, backed by allied Syrian rebel groups,launched on August 24 the Euphrates Shield operation to liberate the strategic Syrian city of Jarablus on the border with Turkey from ISIS. Turkey’s president later vowed to press ahead with the military offensive until ISIS and Syrian Kurdish militias no longer posed a security threat to Turkey.

The Kurds tried to make nicey with the Turks, but as the Armenians discovered, the Turks aren’t all that into diversity.

Stories coming out of Syria are all confused as to who’s who. I’ll provide a helpful guide. It stopped being about anybody but jihadis long ago. Except for the murderous Syrian dictator’s forces, they align with whoever they think can help them today.

The only constants are that Iranian-allied terror groups are always for the murderous Syrian dictator and the Saudi-allied terror groups are always against the murderous Syrian dictator. Below that level, it gets murky. If Turkey gets too rambunctious, expect Saudi terror groups to ally with Iranian terror groups (both without involving the murderous dictator) to ally with the Kurds to kick them out. If/when they succeed, they’ll go back to killing each other. It’s a witch’s dog’s breakfast brew of murderous fanatics.

 

The murderous Syrian dictator does have a plan now that his financiers have a new ally.

The Syrian government has ramped up its efforts to teach the Russian language to secondary school students, nearly a year after Moscow started airstrikes on behalf of the Bashar al-Assad regime.

More of that Obama/Clinton smirt duhplomacy.

 

So having a black Little Orphan Annie and wymyn Ghostbusters is Awesome!!! but you’d better cast previous non-white roles as their ethnicity!!!!!!

Disney is supposedly making a live-action Mulan (before a live-action Futurama, TANJ)

“to tell Disney that we demand to see them cast an Asian Mulan.” The lead instigator, Michigan children’s librarian Natalie Molnar, vented against the practice of “whitewashing” — that is, employing “white Caucasian actors and actresses in roles originally meant to be characters of color.”

This is pretty funny.

…Korean-American Daniel Dae Kim to play the villainous role of Shan Yu … Japanese-American George Takei to play the Chinese Emperor and another Korean American, Margaret Cho, to play the Chinese matchmaker.

That’s like casting an Italian to play Erik the Red cuz they’re both Europeans. Although I’m pretty sure casting Margaret Cho as anything is a movie-killer.

Let’s go to the Dem Perfidy section of the post. The only hard part about doing that is deciding how many stories to actually post. It’s like a hydra-headed thing, as soon as you post one, two more spring up.

Remember when the GOP was going to PUNISH THE DEMS FOR THEIR TOTALLY ILLEGAL SIT-IN OVER GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!?

So how’s that going?

A memo from minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s office calling for a “gun violence prevention day of action” today includes a long itinerary of scripted actions to be taken by Democrat representatives under orders from the 76-year-old gun control zealot. The actions called for are tightly controlled, right down the the tweets the powerful California Democrat wants the staff of representatives to use on social media on her orders

 

And since it’s Dems going after guns, you know there’s jaw-dropping dishonesty involved.

272 mass shootings this year. When will @SpeakerRyan give us a vote? #NoFlyNoBuy  #CloseTheLoophole #GunVote
You would think you might have noticed there being more than one Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook or Pulse Night Club every single day this year

You would think that only if you didn’t just accept that Dem gun-grabbers gonna lie like a Clinton caught with his dick in the cookie jar.

Obama campaigning for Hillary! in his own inimitable way.  I love the URL, barack-obama-reagan-fan/

It’s not that long and it’s an interesting look into how the Dems just crap on their constituents even in something as simple as a campaign event and yet, they still don’t complain.

I have to quote this bit

 be told that they could not bring water with them to witness the president speak on behalf of the indisposed Democratic presidential nominee.

Okay, that’s funny. Don’t they know what happens when you dehydrate?

 

And that, folks, is why we will never see peak irony.

 

Dem Congresscritter Uses Gov’t To Shut Up Enemies!

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.) urged the Department of Justice to prosecute conservative groups that were targeted by the IRS, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

You can file that under News We All Knew.

The reason it may have taken the IRS fourteen months to turn my IRS files over to Judicial Watch is that they state a United States senator from Oregon was involved. At the time both senators from Oregon were Democrats. But only one, Ron Wyden,

It’s what they do, act like fascists as they’re screeching about the latest Emmanuel Goldstein Being Hitler!!!!! Or Worse!!!!!!

Speaking of which, yesterday I made fun of the GOP’s Failure Theater in IMPEACHING KOSKINEN!!!!!!!, little did I know the fish wasn’t just stinky, it wasn’t even fish! It was just a handful of shit covered in nuoc mam.

But GOP leaders are cool to the impeachment push, which stands little chance of succeeding. Some Republicans argue that an impeachment vote two months before elections risked irritating voters,

How out of touch do you have to be to think that attacking the IRS will irritate voters?  No really, that’s like a prosecutor saying he can’t go after organized crime before an election or he’ll irritate voters.

Jebus.

So who else has noticed that all those hearings are OUTRAGE!!!! Theater and that even if they actually try to accomplish something, there’s nobody to enforce their will?

The IT specialist who ran Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server ignored a subpoena to testify before Congress Tuesday, leaving GOP lawmakers fuming and threatening retribution. (hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahha snort….no, I’m fi….hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaa thud

 

What happened? Oh…. Where was I?

Two other witnesses linked to Clinton’s e-mail server invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and repeatedly refused to answer questions.

There will be no repercussions. Oh, the GOP will shout about it, but they won’t actually do anything and if they do try to do anything, the Dept. of “Justice” certainly won’t be any help, the Justice League of America would be more help. They’re at least entertaining.

 

Yesterday I linked the post comparing this election to Flight 93. Since it was pretty down on both candidates, the push-back was pretty strong and from all over the place.

Some also complained about the aptness of the analogy:

That’s funny, I praised the aptness of the analogy, and I love analogy. I like analogy the way a Clinton loves lying.

This shows the author is really paying attention.

First is the objection to anonymity and specifically to the pseudonym. Anonymity supposedly proves that I am a coward, while the use of “Decius” shows that I am a hypocrite. What am I risking?  I freely admit that, unlike the real Decius, I don’t expect to die. But I do have something to lose, and may well yet lose it.

If you come to the attention of the intertuby left, they’ll do everything they can to destroy your life. Hell, that article is way worse than a stupid shirt.

Read the whole thing, it’s a good read.

Yesterday a guy tried run over 3 Phoenix cops

Similar things are going on in Chicago where Clintonista extraordinaire, Rahm, is busy turning it into what Hillary! wants to do with America.

In other news, an SUV was observed on the southside (006?) driving through the alley behind the station with a M/1 passenger taking video of personal cars parked in the police lot. The SUV’s plate comes back to a rental at one of the airports, so it appears to be another escalation in the directed harassment, intimidation and targeting of officers.

So yesterday they posted this,

An officer’s personal vehicle was torched the other night near 67th and Kostner. Written on the back of the car in marker was “Fuck the Police.”

People are now targeting off-duty cops. The Dems and their BLM front group are doing their best to turn America into some third-world, banana-republic shithole where only the rich and connected are safe in their persons.

Sure, let’s elect Hillary! to save the country!!!!!!!  For criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nough of that. Let’s watch a Science! fight that I didn’t realize was happening.

I was looking for a link about how there’s no brontosaurus anymore when I found a bunch of links with this.

Paleontologists have spent the last century insisting that the species and its name (Latin for “thunder lizard”) are invalid… Nevertheless, from comic books to high literature to the Flintstones, the name brontosaurus has invaded popular culture and refuses to die.
…A team of paleontologists l…., they say they found that Brontosaurus really is in its own group. Its fossils share distinct, incomparable bone features—enough for it to reclaim its iconic genus name.

So the science isn’t settled.

Now we just need to get Pluto back into planethood and at least something would be right with the world.

 

I hate the Eagles only slightly less than the I hate the Cowboys, but I never realized exactly how correct I was to do so.

I saw a link to a story about how (Screw The)NFL teams got their nicknames, it was all over place so I finally clicked it. They’re mostly uninteresting except for this.

In 1933, Bert Bell and Lud Wray purchased the bankrupt Frankford Yellowjackets. The new owners renamed the team the Eagles in honor of the symbol of the National Recovery Act, which was part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.

Sonomobatch, so they’re named after one of the most destructive forces not named “Carter” or “Obama” ever inflicted on this nation.

 

Last and totally, hilariously, not least: It begins!

Now, it is my understanding that is(sic, and not my sic! V) she were to be incapacitated, or if she were too ill to continue, or if, God forbid, she should pass away, then the Democratic National Committee would hold a meeting to fill that vacancy. And I don’t think it would be Joe Biden. I don’t think it would be Tim Kaine. I’m fairly confident she would be replaced by Michelle Obama.

Is that a “Heh” or an “Oh shit?!?!??!”?

It’s both! You don’t get the funny without the endy.
