In most of these articles, you can see chickens and roosting being involved. Like the first one.

Trump nixes some guy named Elliot for State.

This is a loss for the State Department and the country and, for that matter, for the President,” said one Republican source.
Another Republican source with knowledge of what happened said Abrams would not get the job because of “Donald Trump’s thin skin and nothing else.”

Love the “Republican sources”, I figure McCain, McConnell and some more of the Rino brigade.

So…Trump’s thin skin? What does Elliot have to say about Trump?

So here’s a first lesson: Do not allow the Republican convention to be a coronation wherein Trump and Trumpism are unchallenged. There’s no reason others who won many delegates, from Rubio to Cruz to Kasich, should not have their names put in nomination. The party needs to be reminded that there are deep divisions, and Trump needs to be reminded of how many in the party oppose and even fear his nomination…

First we need to make sure that Trump knows he’s a particularly crappy candidate.

I love this bit

There’s a second lesson: Watch out about the vice presidency and accepting other forms of favor from Trump

So….. would those “other forms of favor” be a job at the State Dept? Have the courage of your convictions establishment GOP dude.

Sorry, I know establishment GOP dudes have no convictions.

And a fourth lesson: Seize the party machinery back immediately after the Trump defeat.

 

Ahhh, so this guy wanted to make sure that Trump was jettisoned, he specifically told people not to work with Trump (don’t take VP or other slots).

I’d say that maybe, contra fakenewser/CNN, Trump decided he didn’t need another asshole who hates him working for him.

 

Eric at Classical Values found a PJ O’Rourke link. PJ, fresh from endorsing Hillary, says

The election of 2016 was terrible because it wasn’t an election, it was a rebellion. America is having a civil war, or, to be more accurate, a War of Incivility. The war is not between Republicans and Democrats or between conservatives and progressives. The war is between the frightened and what they fear.

As I wrote at Eric’s, no, it’s between the pissed-off and who pissed us off. But by all means PJ, keep explaining how I’m a hating hater who is afraid and if I was just smarter I could be smart enough to have voted for Hillary fucking Clinton.

I’ll give you a hint PJ, unless Hitler shows up, Clintons are always the greater of two evils.

 

CNN is all excited, Anger Erupts At Republican Town Halls!!!!!!

Mike Carlson, a 32-year-old student from Antioch, Tennessee, said that as an overweight man, he depended on Obamacare to stay alive.
“I have to have coverage to make sure I don’t die. There are people now who have cancer that have that coverage, that have to have that coverage to make sure they don’t die,” Carlson said. “And you want to take away this coverage — and have nothing to replace it with! How can I trust you to do anything that’s in our interest at all?”

Oh, so they’re against getting rid of Obamacare, I’m gonna have to go out on a limb and say that they’re the same assholes rioting and feloniously destroying property around the country.

How can I say that? Would you say a “32-year old student” whining about someone else paying for his health-care is the demographic of felonious rioting? I thought that you would.

 

Connecticut is interesting, it has some parts that are the homes of rich folks, Greenwich for instance, and other’s that are homes of poor folks, Bridgeport for instance. So how do they balance rights for rich and poor?

To address Connecticut’s $3.6 billion shortfall, Malloy has suggested increasing permits from $70 to $300, a more than 420 percent increase. He also suggested raising the initial 5-year pistol permit fee from $140 to $370, a more than 250 percent increase. In addition, Malloy wants to increase the background fee from $50 to $75.

Of course, the revenues they claim they’ll get from this won’t be what they get since many of the people who would have bought a permit won’t as it’s too expensive for poor Connecticuticans. Which is probably the goal, keep guns out of poor folks hands. Since they’re Democrats, they can shit on the poor guilt-free because Democrats care.

 

Chickens, roost, no assembly required.

Criminals trying to recruit students. Brawls between different ethnic groups. Drug dealing. Welcome to the prestigious Värnhem School in central Mälmo, which won the 2015 ‘Peace Prize’ for taking in the most “newly arrived pupils” (immigrants).

Whodathunkthat? I mean, besides anybody not willfully ignorant.

 

When I first saw this

A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings.

I thought, “Wow! How did this right-winger actually manage to work at Georgetown and then speak the truth about Islam?”

But then I read this

but the lecturer moved its focus to criticize the United States, United Kingdom and China. Brown described slavery in these non-Muslim societies as brutal, which they were, but lauded the historically inhumane practice in Arab lands and Turkey…

Brown stated that slaves were “protected by Sharia,” omitting the various atrocities committed by slave-owners. Girls and women were forced into the sex trade and their male counterparts were often castrated.

and I realized, he’s not a right winger bashing Islam, he’s an Islamist praising it. That’s fucking funny.

I wonder how good Georgetown’s doublethink is, they might have to actually pay attention to this guy saying all the stuff that’s hate-speech when I point it out.

 

Speaking of slavery, lefty doublethink and murderous ideologies, New 5-star hotel to open in Havana!

Imagine, if you’re not Cuban and you have plenty of disposable income, you could stay in this new luxury hotel.

But you’d better hurry and get there before Castrogonia “loses its purity.”

Never mind the fact that this building was stolen from its rightful owners, the Gómez-Mena family.  It was built by “wealthy businessman” José Gómez-Mena Vila between 1890 and 1918.

I hope for the same thing I hope for in relation to people doing business in China,

In Castrogonia, there can only be one owner: Castro, Inc., and the Swiss cretins who will manage this hotel could be in for a surprise down the line.

Their investment in this totally revolting venture is as subject to confiscation as anything else in Castrogonia.

Yup. Those are some chickens I want to peck the shit out of those assholes when they roost.

I want all the assholes who use commie-slave labor, like Apple, to get fucked. Good, deep and hard, go bankrupt and then get sodomized by Berkeley protestors.

 

Adult Swim is streaming every Samurai Jack episode! I like Samurai Jack.

 

I’ll leave you with, The 21st Century occasionally lives up to expectations!

 

It’s just no good anymore since they went away
Now I spend my time just making posts from yesterday

 

Topical!

There is no logic. There are no facts. You can say blue, and they will hear white. One plus one equals cat. Calling the left mentally ill is truly a disservice to those who are mentally ill. At least with mental illness there’s a reason for the madness and a hope for a cure. There is no hope for the left. They are suffering from a deep-rooted spiritual sickness, one for which, I’m afraid, there is no cure.

When you compare a United States President to a creature who killed 6 million Jews and 5 million others, what exactly is the starting point for a logical conversation?…

How do you talk to people who use the Holocaust as a prop? The Jews, the disabled, the gays, and those who were different were all exterminated. They have now become a straw man for the spiritually depraved, demonic left. What do you say to people who chant “We are all Muslim” when the Muslim is looking at them, going: “Yes, that is the goal isn’t it, dead or alive?”

Exactly. Trying to intelligently debate someone who compares anybody but Hitler, or maybe Stalin, to Hitler is about useless. Willful ignorance is functionally the same as stupidity and you wouldn’t argue with an idiot as to whether blue tastes better than Cheerios, would you?

 

H/T Added 20 minutes later!!!!!!

Relatedly,  selectively stupid hate!

He didn’t rape anyone or have an affair with his intern (Bill Clinton), he didn’t kill anyone, (Ted Kennedy), he didn’t smoke crack with some hooker in a seedy motel (Marion Barry), he didn’t text photos of his junk to underage girls (Anthony Weiner), he didn’t sell favors to our enemies (hiLIARy Clinton), he didn’t disrespect our military and throw his medals away (John Kerry), he didn’t have bribe money hidden in his freezer (William Jefferson), he didn’t make fun of Indian (dot head, not woo woo) convenience store clerks (Joe Biden), he didn’t belong to the KKK (Robert Byrd), he didn’t father a child with a 15 year old black woman (Strom Thurmond), he wasn’t caught texting sex message to teenage boys (Mark Foley), or run a gay house of prostitution with his boyfriend (Barney Frank), or try to pick up men in public restrooms (Larry Craig), and those are just from memory, I haven’t even Googled anything yet.

Donald Trump did nothing like any of those other politicians, yet those people are beloved and he is hated.

Yeah but…..compassion!….tolerance!……

This is the money shot

And are we really going to kill each other over politicians? Seriously? Think about that for a moment. Brother against brother, husband versus wife, over people like Mitch McConnell or Elizabeth Warren. OMG…what has happened to us

Yup. If there are people less worth getting rioting-angry about than any of our fine political betters, well, I can’t think of them.

 

The failure theater I expected is in full gear, fuck the GOP.

 

Should I get worked up in defense of these assholes?

A group of prominent Republicans and business leaders pitched a tax on carbon dioxide to top White House aides Wednesday, selling the plan as an economic win that could drive job growth and yield environmental dividends too.

Former Secretary of State James Baker and other members of the new “Climate Leadership Council” pressed the case in a 45-minute meeting in the Roosevelt Room that included President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior aide Kellyanne Conway.

Sigh. I can only hope Trump was playing Angry Birds during the presentation and only allowed them in for some sort of pat on the head for the GOP assholes.

Speaking of Failure Theater!

house-of-shut-up

Fuckheads are slow-rolling.

Primary season is just around the corner!

Speaking of fuckhead Republicans and their disdain for their ‘base’, Kristollnacht!

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?”

I really do not like the NRO/Weekly Standard assholes. I used to subscribe to NRO, but now I can’t even read Jay Nordlinger.

The best part, for me, is that they went all in on Palin-hate and thought they won but now we have Trump. That has to really piss them off.

 

Just don’t forget, they’re smarter and better than you!

The demographic most opposed to President Trump is not a racial minority, but a cultural elite.

This isn’t a revolution. The revolutions happened in June and November. Brexit and Trump were revolutions. The protests against them are a reaction by the overthrown establishment.

 

Yeah see, you were in charge and that’s why we’re so fucked so sit down, shut up and drink your damn appletini.

 

I read this story at AZ Central (supported Hillary!) about a totally blameless immigrant who’s just trying to make a better life.

For  four years, federal immigration authorities have given Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos a pass to remain in the U.S. rather than deport her back to Mexico.

That changed Wednesday, when Garcia de Rayos went to check in as usual at the central Phoenix offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead of being released, she was taken into custody, while her husband, two children — both U.S.-born citizens — and a group of supporters watched in tears….

In a statement, ICE officials said only that Garcia de Rayos was detained because of her prior conviction, which stems from a work-site raid almost a decade ago.(that’s a lie as we’ll see shortly V)

And thought, “There’s something they’re not telling me. Why is this totally innocent woman being targeted? Maybe she’s not so innoccent!”, imagine my unsurprise when I saw this.

She was arrested in 2008 during a workplace raid ordered by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at Golfland Sunsplash amusement park in Mesa, Ariz., and convicted of felony identity theft for possessing false papers.

Oh, convicted of a felony. That’s different. And the AZ Central article also managed to avoid mentioning this

ICE officials confirmed the detention on Wednesday. “Ms. Garcia de Rayos is currently being detained by ICE based on a removal order issued by the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review which became final in May 2013,” the agency said in a news release.

So Trump was POTUS in 2013? Huh. And isn’t that a little different from what AZ Central told us ICE said?

Which leads us to the question Which should be their catchphrase?

Minitrue: Lying Liars Who Lie!

or

Minitrue: Purveyors Of Fake News Since 1895!

 

They so miss Obama they’re forced to doing Tiger Teen! articles full of stupidities and lies.

“Obama makes rest of us look bad with his effortless kitesurfing”

– The Washington Post, Early Lead, February 7, 6:32 PM

 

Hahahahahahahahaha. I bet they had to type that one-handed.

These claims are false. As the video reveals Obama fell multiple times off the kiteboard despite “perfect conditions” and practicing for “two days solid” before the challenge.

Hahahahhahahahah. I love this part.

However, Love also admitted Obama is “not the most explosive guy, not the fastest guy,” and he “lacks in physical capabilities.”

Video evidence reveals Obama does not “knock down open shots.” ABC News reported in 2013 that, when playing against children, Obama was “ice cold” after going just 2 for 22 from the floor. The former president had to be shown how to make a layup by a 10 year old.

Hahahahahahahahahaha

Why…it’s almost as if they lie about Obama more than they do about Trump!?!?!?!?

 

They’re better than you!

Scores of NYPD cops have installed illegal flash-reflecting plastic covers on their personal-vehicle license plates that can thwart toll and traffic cameras

I’m pretty sick of this culture of impunity for our betters.

 

The Hill has high hopes.

Is Gorsuch a secret liberal? Trump, GOP have reason to wonder.

They lay it out, he lives in and near lefties!!!!!! And look at this!

sided with an Albuquerque middle schooler who was strip-searched by his school, dissenting while his colleagues ruled that the school, police officer and other employees were immune from lawsuits.

Okay, that’s just stupid. That’s not “liberal”, that’s “libertarian”. I understand liberaltarians try to obfuscate the issue, but they are different.

I’d say most lefties were not in favor of being able to sue the gov’t, unless you’re a leftist suing for Social Justice!!!! of course.
Back in 2014, I wrote about an article noting that Sweden was importing many tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees”.

This should end well.

…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.

Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.

So how is it going?

More than 110 blazes ripped through accommodation centres across the Scandinavian nation, according to national police statistics. Of those fires, around 20 are believed to have been caused by carelessness or accident.

However Swedish officials have now said 92 of the infernos were started deliberately, with 37 of them being started by a resident at the home.

In the remaining cases, two culprits have been identified, but 53 of the fires remain unsolved as police have no leads as to who the suspects may be.

Hey! Let’s import a few tens of thousands here! Paul Krugman told us destroying shit is good for the economy!

 

I wonder if the previous story had anything to do with this.

Drawing on a unique, new Chatham House survey of more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, we can throw new light on what people think about migration from mainly Muslim countries. Our results are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

Wait, you mean that people do not like importing other people who hate them and their whole, westernly-civilized nations? The deuce you say!

It takes an ‘elite’ to be surprised by that.

 

Speaking of Syrian ‘refugees’, let’s see how that bucket of scorpions is taking being shook up.

The complication is that the advancing forces — the Syrian Army and pro-government militias backed by Russia, and Syrian rebels backed by Turkey — are sworn enemies.

Their simultaneous race to seize the city, Al Bab, has turned into a test of how a global realignment of powers supporting Syria’s antagonists could help reshape or end the nearly six-year-old conflict…

The coming days will show if the Syrian foes, who do not always obey their patrons, will work together for the first time against the Islamic State, or drive out the extremists and then try to kill one another.

Yeah, that’ll work out great. The first question I have is if the “rebels’ will side with ISIS against the gov’t or if they’ll wait until ISIS is driven out before attacking the gov’t forces.

Which leads to the next questions, what’s Tsar Putin I going to do about it? How about Sultan Erdogan? Will Russia and Turkey get into a war?

 

The feel-good story of the week! Some idiots went to Cuba for their “Dream Wedding!” and found out when they got there that they were having a “Dream Wedding!” in a commie shithole.

A couple of apartheid-loving Brits who planned a lavish wedding in Cuba suffered a gigantic disappointment when the roof of their wedding venue collapsed.

Many were injured, including the bride and groom and their two children.

Needless to say, the Castro regime collected a lot of money from these newlyweds and their 24 guests, but won’t have to pay a shilling in compensation for injuries, trauma, and distress….

They chose to spend $31,287 for a wedding in one of the most repressive and impoverished countries on earth.

(Quick calculation: for a Cuban worker to afford such a wedding he/she would have to work for 105 years and save every penny for that event).

Even worse, they hoped it would be “the wedding of their dreams.”

 

It was the wedding of my dreams. I wonder if they’ll reevaluate their love of communism. Probably not, it takes real stupidity and willful ignorance to go to fucking Cuba to have a dream wedding.

Carlos asks a question

So… is it wrong to feel good about this couple’s bad luck?

No, it’s one of the things that’s right in the world. Feeling sorry for them would be wrong. They went to a gigantic slave-island. They deserved all the shit they got.

 

It doesn’t rain but it pours.

Samsung SDI made the news again on Wednesday when one of its plants in China caught fire.

Talk about bad optics. I will say I love my Samsung J-3.  The battery lasts a long time and it works very well.

 

Just some inside-basketball stuff. Before the basketball season started I watched the Knicks try to build a winner, with good players and I wrote

The schadenfreudey part is that the Knicks spent a lot of money on assholes like Noah but they kept Carmelo Anthony. CarMElo Anthony has Obama level narcissism.

He’s going to be such a whiney “Give me the ball” bitch the Knicks will suck anyway. They had a guy, Jeremy Lin, who came out of nowhere when ‘MElo’ was injured and the fans loved him. So once MElo was back, he forced Lin out.  I’m gonna laugh my ass off as they are screwed this year either by listening to MElo or by the ruckus he’ll cause if they don’t.

So what’s happening? The Knicks suck and are trying to trade ‘Melo but there are no takers and now he’s fighting with the GM.

Hahahahahhahaa. And that’s why I stopped watching basketball long ago. I liked Jordan, I didn’t like Kobe, and now all the ‘stars’ act like Kobe. When he was in trouble for rape one of his teammates said, anonymously, “I don’t believe the accusations, Kobe doesn’t make a pass to anyone!”

 

Now, if I was a little more superstitious, I’d be celebrating this,

Astronomers and stargazers will be treated to three celestial events on Friday night through Saturday morning.

The trifecta includes a “penumbra” lunar eclipse during the full “snow” moon and a comet flyby!

but all the apocalypse scenarios have been teases I hate to get my hopes up.

Although… the fact that it’s a “penumbra” eclipse, gives me hope.

Penumbras are always used to screw us.

Jurists have used the term “penumbra” as a metaphor for rights implied in the constitution (Commerce Clause! V)

So we have that going for us.

 

When Will I Fucking Learn?

Posted: January 26, 2017 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Liberal FAIL, minitrue madness

Seriously, no matter how often I show Minitrue to be a bunch of lying sacks of shit, I still trust them!?!?!?!

Important Update! Original post moved below the fold!!!

I misread the twitter thing.

 

Assuming the Hill is accurate, it’s not “Business as usual”, it’s even more awesome than I imagined.

They didn’t quit.

In a statement, acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said all of the politically appointed officers were asked to submit letters of resignation, something he said was typical in a transition.

“Of the officers whose resignations were accepted, some will continue in the Foreign Service in other positions, and others will retire by choice or because they have exceeded the time limits of their grade in service,” Toner said in the statement.

I’ve had to let out the crotches on all  my pants.

More.

 

It’s the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that’s incredibly difficult to replicate,” David Wade, who served as State Department chief of staff under Secretary of State John Kerry, told The Post.

Earlier this year, it emerged that Trump’s team had asked all politically-appointed U.S. ambassadors to clear out of their posts by Inauguration Day, in what was seen as a break with precedent.

Unh, unh, unh……aaahhhhhhh.

Where were we? Oh yeah. I reversed the order on the above quotes, but I felt that had more…oooompfff.

There’s just so much win in there.

Semi-related, the Border Patrol guy who QUIT GUYS!!!!!, wasn’t hired

Approximately 6 months ago, CBP Commissioner Gil R. Kerlikowske officially announced the hiring (appointment) of Mark Morgan, one of the Obama Administration’s top risers within the FBI. Morgan is the same FBI Agent that a number of congressional offices believe “scrubbed” FBI training manuals of information that would have been damning to the agency and the Administration. Chief Morgan is a disgrace to the Border Patrol.

 

He was ‘appointed’, via pen and phone I assume. Too bad there’s a different set of feet on that desk these days.
