Suspended in my meth brigade.

Well, that’s how I feel reading the ‘news’.

I dispute that my soul is untouched though.

 

Sometimes CNN just pissed me off.

Washington (CNN) – President Donald Trump plans to dismember government one dollar at a time.

Yeah, but that’s not the plan. He’s just trying to cut some shit not dismember the bloated behemoth. They keep getting my hopes up but I should know better than to trust those fakenewser assholes.

 

NYS is full of racist assholes!

The (NYS) Board of Regents on Monday eliminated a requirement that aspiring teachers in New York State pass a literacy test to become certified after the test proved controversial because black and Hispanic candidates passed it at significantly lower rates than white candidates.

So what you’re saying is that minorities are too stupid to pass literacy tests? Racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why not try to recruit competent minorities? I know, that’s so….Republican!

 

If we didn’t have the Wash Post we would have to invent them to make fun of.

Pro-Trump media sets the agenda with lies. Here’s how traditional media can take it back.

So how are the Utterly Competent And Honest Purveyors Of The Truth at the Wash Post going to Take Back The Truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? By lying of course.

Similarly, the right-wing radio host Mark Levin may have started the evidence-free idea that President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of now-President Trump. It made its way quickly through the media ecosystem, after Trump saw it, apparently on Breitbart News…..

Yeah, about that.

But as to saying of Mark Levin that he started the “evidence-free idea that President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of now-President Trump” Levin did no such thing. What he did do, as detailed here, was make it vividly clear — using mainstream media stories including the Post and others — that in fact the Obama administration had been conducting surveillance of Trump and/or Trump campaign associates. That is a fact. Asked directly in a Fox interview whether Obama personally ordered the surveillance, Mark relied that he was not “Nostradamus” — but emphatically made it clear that the mainstream media reporting on surveillance of Trump had clearly cited information drawn from some sort of Obama administration surveillance known to the intelligence community.

Fakenewsers gonna fakenews and liars gonna lie.

 

Moderate GOPer in the House is against Ryancare! Why? you ask? You shouldn’t have asked. Really.

“After studying the impact of this proposed legislation on my district and speaking with many of my constituents, I have decided to vote no on the bill as currently written,” she said in a statement to the Miami Herald. “The bill’s consequences for South Florida are clear: too many of my constituents will lose insurance and there will be less funds to help the poor and elderly with their healthcare.”

So in other words, the terms of the debate are not “Should the gov’t be involved?” to “The gov’t needs to pay for everybody’s healthcare or you’re a racist hater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

That’s the endgame the Dems had in mind when they shoved that debacle up our cloacae. And here we are. With the GOP agreeing we need the benevolent .gov to run every aspect of our lives.

Fuck.

 

The Dutch are voting today, updating results here, with an interesting bit.

 

 

Yeah, if that’s their main worry, I’d bet they’re voting for Geert Wilders. I’d also bet they’re afraid to say so to any “journalist” because voting for him is a Hate-Crime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 of the first order.

 

In Tsar Putin I news, poisoned soup!

A Russian whistleblower in Britain may have died after eating poisoned soup, a judge has heard…

Perepilichny had sought refuge in Britain in 2009 and had been providing evidence to the authorities about a Russian money-laundering scheme.

Lawyers at a pre-inquest hearing suggested that he died shortly after eating a sorrel soup which had been infused with a posion based on the gelsemium plant.

Samples from his stomach showed traces of a material likely to be the toxin…

He’s a throwback to the fucking 16th century tsars.

 

Okay, I can’t decide if this is hilarious, horrific or just another sad, sordid tale of 21st century America where 2016 was not an aberration.

A transgender dad and daughter from Detroit are revealing their incredible journeys as they transition from mom and son.

Mom became Dad and son became daughter.

Seriously, think about trying to explain that to someone in 1950s.

 

What are we going to do tonight?

 

Sad? No, just the truth. As an engineer I’m happy people are starting to figure this out.

 

5-dollar-kill

That’s freaking awesome. Via this site, Odd Stuff Magazine, that apparently every blogger in the world knows about but me.

And probably Ace.

So is it illusion that it’s no war in Ukraine or is it delusion?

An area near the industrial zone came under fire. As a result of explosions of shells on Levanevskoho Str., Soborna Str., and Lermontova Str., eight houses were damaged by shrapnel. Rooftops, walls, and windows suffered considerable damage,” the press service of the National Police in Donetsk region reported.

 

Delusion, they’re surely not hiding it. I do not think the spring is going to be fun in much of the world.

 

Delusional thinking knows no limits!

European leaders get together in Munich to discuss the invasion of a part of Europe!

The Munich Agreement was a settlement permitting Nazi Germany’s annexation of portions of Czechoslovakia along the country’s borders mainly inhabited by German speakers, for which a new territorial designation “Sudetenland” was coined…

Because the state of Czechoslovakia was not invited to the conference,…

Oh wait, wrong Munich Conference.

Foreign ministers of the Normandy Four have started negotiations in Munich on settlement of the situation in Donbas, according to an UNIAN correspondent…

The talks are being held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference with the participation of Foreign Ministers of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, Russia Sergey Lavrov, Germany Sigmar Gabriel, and France Jean-Marc Ayrault,

 

Eh, at least this time they invited Czechoslovakia…Ukraine. They’re still gonna be betrayed, but they’ll be able to watch it in real time.

 

Delusion or illusion?

CBS News has learned that on Thursday, an angry President Trump called CIA Director Mike Pompeo and yelled at him for not pushing back hard enough against reports that the intelligence community was withholding information from the commander-in-chief.

Every report about Trump from any minitrue outlet should be considered a lie until proven stupid, how could they know he “yelled”? I wouldn’t dispute that Trump called him and took him to task for that bit of assholery,  but I sincerely doubt he “yelled at him”. So… is that story delusion or illusional?

Scott Adams says, Delusional!

When reality violates your ego that rudely, you either have to rewrite the movie in your head to recast yourself as an idiot, or you rewrite the movie to make yourself the hero who could see what others missed. Apparently the Huffington Post chose to rewrite their movie so Trump is a deranged monster, just like they warned us. That’s what they see. This isn’t an example of so-called “fake” news as we generally understand it. This is literally imaginary news. I believe the Huffington Post’s description of the press conference is literally what they saw.

Yup. They cannot admit, especially to themselves, that they’re idiots.

 

I’m going with both illusional and delusional on this, and more!

The Northern Arizona University Political Science department recently hosted a “Specter of Fascism” event at which professors repeatedly compared Donald Trump to Hitler and the Nazis.

“The Specter of Fascism” was a panel discussion featuring six NAU professors with specialties covering politics and international affairs, women and gender studies, and criminology.

It’s attempted indoctrination by delusional fools pushing an illusion.

I agree with this bit though

“The material and psychological conditions that made it possible for the Nazis to mobilize masses around an ideologically constructed enemy are the very same conditions in which our politics is unfolding today

Except I’d say the people who are busily rioting around the country are the incipient fascists.

Now, Trump the Fascist is an illusion they’re trying to create, but their idiocy hampers that. Let’s continue the quote about how the conditions are the same as for the Nazis.

explaining that “these material conditions are a capitalist, economic, and bourgeois social world in which private gain…you know, ruthlessly competitive world is celebrated and where economic suffering combine with deep social isolation is the condition we live in.”

Ummmmm, that’s the commie revolution idiot lefties have been masturbating to since Marx first thought it up, the rise of fascism was an entirely different deal.

 

Okay, I’ve heard some stupid things from Bill Gates, but this is the most disingenuous and delusional thing I’ve ever heard.

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and world’s richest man, said in an interview Friday that robots that steal human jobs should pay their fair share of taxes.

“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things,” he said. “If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”

Disingenuous because he knows the people who run the robots will be taxed so the people buying the products will pay the taxes, delusional because… that’s about the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever heard.

The worst part? Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Chuck fucking Schumer just got huge boners and they’re not sure why.

 

I didn’t realize Pat Buchanan was running!

The Church’s legislative body voted last night against a report that calls for continued opposition to same-sex marriage…

Now some clergy have come forward saying they made a mistake when using their voting machines, and that they actually supported their colleagues’ report.

I would bet fifty cents that was supposed to be failure theater. They wanted the vote to be close but they miscounted and screwed it up.

 

Sticking with gay stuff,

A police veteran with 22 years on the force was told to “tone down” his sexuality if he ever wanted a promotion to lieutenant, according to a discrimination lawsuit.

At first I thought, “I can understand that, women who are cops do not emphasize their femininity so they can intimidate..well…me. Men should not either.”, but then I thought about the fact that he was already a 22 year veteran, that would seem to point out they just don’t like gay cooties.

Everyone knows girls are where cooties come from. I just wish more people would accept that.

 

The way that book should have ended!

franks-ending

 

Now, some of you made fun of me for my boycott of Lemur King but, as usual, I was just ahead of my time!

F]eminists are pushing a boycott of Trump wines and Wegmans for selling it. … Since the boycott began the sale of Trump Wines has skyrocketed. [story]

Ivanka Trump’s perfume line shot to the top of Amazon’s bestseller’s list, as the first daughter faces boycott efforts by liberals and supporters counter with a #buyivanka campaign. [story]

A viral video shows a group of women storming into a Nordstrom to cancel their accounts in response to the retailer’s decision to stop selling Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand, promising to shop at Dillard’s instead. [story]

Hah!

The problem is that Veeshir-style boycotts take so much time and effort they’re just not worth it.

Thanks to neal for reminding me about this excellent song, let’s listen to some 70s Stones.

 

That’s the stuff that doesn’t get played on Classic Rock Stations!!!!!! cuz they’re too busy playing the same 124 songs over and over and over.

 

Well, it’s that week. The week that Obama does his worst to America with all of our fine media betters freaking out about Trump.

A recap of that hard-hitting story that CNN put out about how Trump loves him some Russian hookers.

Guess who started it? No, not John McCain,

In September of 2015 someone — now revealed as a Jeb Bush Super PAC donor — paid Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C. outfit, to compile a dossier of dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion engaged Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 agent in London, to do the job. While early accounts of the story refer to him as a “respected source”, he has a history of dumpster diving for Democrats.

He just got it from his establishment prick buddies and passed it on. I did find a picture of Trump with Russian hookers.

trump

Should I send it to McCain?

 

Now, anything anybody says about what Trump’s “Going To Do!!!!!!!!!” is a not-very-educated guess. Nobody knows. But this could be true.

Foreign governments will be encouraged to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances, as many are already turning off money spigots to the scandal-scarred group, The Post has learned.

Mostly because I’d think it’s the pissed off foreign states pushing it because they want a piece of flesh for their, now useless, huge bribes.

 

Trump is scaring the Germans! Oh Noes!!!!!!!!

Only one guy seems to have a clue.

“I think the interview has left everyone scratching their heads because it’s not clear what the policies of the future US president are,

 

You fools might want to wait and see before freaking out. Or not, having EUnuchs run around screeching over Trump as Obama and Tsar Putin I get their warfaces on in Poland and the Baltics is pretty funny.

 

Let’s go to Legal Insurrection for two.

Representatives of 70 nations showed up for a peace conference to get peace between Israel and Terrorstan.  So, how did it go?

That conference brought 70+ nations together to discuss terms of peace between Israel and the Palestinians, without either party being present.

I bet swimmingly! Because having the International Community sign a peace deal  worked so well in Sudan.

As with anything in the “Peace Process!!!!!!”, it’s a weapon against Israel.

The Paris peace conference was intended to advance the international assault on Israel’s legitimacy, playing up the Palestinian narrative that settlements, not Palestinian intransigence, were mostly responsible for the lack of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. It was expected that the final communique from the conference, which would have reiterated the “flagrant violation” language, would have been a formalized in a second UNSC resolution.

However British Prime Minister Theresa May stepped up and sent a low level delegation to the conference, which refused to sign on to the final communique. (A spokesman for the government had blasted Kerry’s post resolution speech, in which he tried to justify the abstention, saying that it was wrong to be “focusing on only one issue,” namely the settlements, in seeking peace, when “the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians is so deeply complex.” The statement also took Kerry to task for “the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally.” The statement criticizing Kerry also reiterated that bilateral negotiations were the only way to achieve peace.)

Good on the Brits. The outgoing administration are as vile a group as any that does not specifically include Harry Reid.

 

Don’t Worry! Tom Sawyer and his friends are investigating Comey over the DO”J” telling him to let Hillary off!

There will similarly be no inquiry into why the Justice Department allowed subjects of the investigation (who had been granted immunity from prosecution) to appear as lawyers for the main subject of the investigation – despite ethical and statutory prohibitions on such conduct. Nor, evidently, will the IG be probing why the attorney general furtively met with the spouse of the main subject of the investigation – the spouse who just happens to be the president who launched the attorney general to national prominence by appointing her as a district U.S. attorney in the Nineties – on an airport tarmac just days before Mrs. Clinton submitted to a perfunctory FBI interview, after which came Comey’s announcement that charges would not be filed.

 

Listen, Aunt Polly’s fence isn’t going to whitewash itself!

 

This is messed up. I wonder how much insurance costs RR companies who have to drive through Chicago?

In the last five years, trains have been robbed in Chicago more than 400 times. It can take a train a full day to get through Chicago… as they roll into the city, they wind up stopping on tracks in very dangerous neighborhoods. Gangsters and thugs simply take bolt cutters and open up the cars like metallic Christmas gifts. And a lot of those train cars contain guns and ammo. No security… just arms ready made for the streets of the Windy City.

Last November, a half a dozen semi-automatic rifles and 27 handguns were…

 

A slow-moving, open air market for pillagers. It’s like Walmart except the prices are even lower and we all pay for it!

I bet I know why they don’t have guards, they’d need to be very well armed and it’s illegal to have a gun in Chicago.

 

Now, while this would make me laugh, I don’t think so.

The news media, as we have known it in the three quarters of a century since World War II, is disappearing much faster than we realize.  It might soon be extinct.

We need news services for foreign correspondents, if for nothing else. Sure bloggers can pick up the slack, but you really need a news organization and sooner or later one is going to come out that wants to make money instead of push a viewpoint.

Foxnews was pretty good for a while, but now all they have for decent journalists, as far as I am concerned, are the main financial people (although Neil Cavuto has his Establishment moments), Bret Baier, Catherine Herridge and Harris Faulkner (added), the rest are blow-dried teleprompter morons and/or lefties. I thought Martha MacCallum was a journalist for a while, but she hates Trump too much.

Herridge, who I called “Molly Hemingway” in previous posts, was the one who got most of the Hillary email leaks and reported them  on Bret Baier’s show, forcing the rest to follow suit. Without those two, the rest of minitrue might have been able to ignore it.

 

The California High-Speed Money Burning project, which hasn’t actually started, is already $billions over budget and 7 years behind schedule.

Now, over budget is a given (like the Dem-piggy bank/Big Dig), but it takes a California politician to be 7 years behind projection on a project they haven’t actually begun. That takes real idiocy, ignorance and a desire to push on no matter what hassles reality throws at you.

 

This is a pretty good bit on California global warmmongering, but I’m quoting it for this bit that could include any Dem pol.

Brown demanded that Obama institute a permanent ban on offshore drilling. Offshore drilling might even produce enough money to fund his high-speed rail obsession. But math and Moonbeam have never been on speaking terms. He doesn’t have policies. He has dreams.

And those are some expensive dreams.

 

 

 

I’m pretty sad that Castro died. I mean, he should have been gnawed to death by starving raccoons or been burned to death in a pile of donkey shit but no, he died of old age in his bed.

Sonomobatch. I hope it was painful.

Who’s also sad he died?

Our fine media betters.

Vid @JimAvilaABC: #FidelCastro “considered…George Washington of his country among those who remain in Cuba”

Yeah, cuz if they don’t pretend they love him they get murderously dictated at.

Cubans who’ve successfully escaped his island prison are only now happy to compare him to George Washington. They’re both dead. That’s the only comparison.

 

Chinless, Syrian, murderous dictator showing his ass to Obama.

Syria regime set “red line” around Al-Bab:

If I wasn’t an American, that would be much funnier.

It was aimed at Turkey, putting Russia in a bind. Do they bomb Turkey for their murderous dictatorial ally, Syria, or do they tell their murderous ally to chill out and not mess with their EU-dividing,  dictatorial ally?

 

This isn’t new, but we need lots of articles and news coverage of it to help us try to reverse the trend.

The Bureaucracy Is Now More Powerful Than Congress

Exactly. They are already planning a revolt for Trump and they have the same contempt for Congress I do. The difference is that I can’t make laws, they do.

 

Some more good news that’ll help us properly celebrate the death of a murderous, commie dictator and drown our sorrows over rule by bureaucrat. .

Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have discovered a chemical reaction to turn CO2 into ethanol

They talk about ‘averting climate change’ (idjits) and they also talk about it being fuel, but another word for “ethanol” is “booze”.

Science might have figured out how to make booze out of air!

While the 21st century has mostly disappointed me, that’s all about teh awesome.

Although, I do hope they also make it into the ethanol they use for fuel, that would reduce the number of pooe people killed for the great global warmmongering as the price of corn would go down as they stop using it to screw up my gasoline.

Guess from where?

Cuban baseball players paid a South Florida-based smuggling ring more than $15 million to leave the communist island in secretive ventures that included phony documents, false identities and surreptitious boat voyages to Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, federal prosecutors say.

As the Border Patrol is forced to act as coyotes, they’re going after people trying to flee a murderous, commie dictatorship.

Just when you think the Obama admin cannot be any more despicable, they prove you wrong.

 

Unrelated

moron

Man, it seemed like old times for a while. Oh well.

Donald Trump is a despicable human being. He’s not a conservative. His policies, to the extent that they have any consistency, stand no chance making America great again. I would not trust him alone in a room with any woman I cared about.

And yet, I am voting for Trump. Simply put, a Hillary Clinton presidency would signify the end of the republic as we know it.

This sort of talk gets dismissed as hyperbolic. I can understand why. Surely similar things were said of Reagan, Bill Clinton, Dubya, Obama, and probably most previous Presidents going all the way back. But I don’t think the negativity around this election can be dismissed as bombast. Things have fundamentally changed in America.

(more…)

Immediate, above the post, update!!!! Link to SDB’s USS Clueless archives!!!!!

Now, Back to Masks!

And the removal thereof.

This one slays me. (figuratively but literally if this guy and his spiritual brethren get their way)

Yassir Arafish had the “say one thing in English and keep the death threats in Arabic” playbook down pat, but many of fine terroristic brothers are using it as well. Why not? Our fine betters always ‘fall’ for it.

Earlier this month, Syrian ‘refugee’ Jaber Albakr committed suicide after being arrested over a plot to bomb a Berlin airport….

Alaa Albakr, the brother of the terrorist, who is seeking compensation from Germany, doesn’t believe his brother took his own life. He is basing his legal defense on Islamic teaching, as his ‘pious’ refugee-turned-terrorist brother couldn’t have killed himself because “suicide is forbidden in Islam”

Yeah, the evidence would seem to point out that the last sentence is not all that true, but them, I’m just an infidel.

Since there is still some funny left, let’s get to it.

had a totally different message for the Arabic speaking audiences.

“My response as an Arab is revenge.” said Alaa Albakr in an Arabic language video message shortly after his brother’s death. “You understand me. I don’t want to say anything further. I will come as a refugee.”

 

So he warned the Germans he was coming to get them (in the “I Keel You!” sense) and they put out the welcome mat. Cultural suicide isn’t funny, ‘cept it is.  It’s going to be even funnier when (If?) the Germans get sick of being at everybody’s feet and start looking for some throats.

 

Now, it’s been obvious for a long time, unavoidably obvious since 2008, that our fine Minitrue betters have thrown off even pretense of fairness or non-bias, but this is just messed up.

Wikileaks: Journalists Dined at Top Clinton Staffers’ Homes Days Before Hillary’s Campaign Launch

They give Hillary! their donations and meet with her in cozy private meetings where they plot strategy to get Hillary! elected.

The goals of the dinner include:
(1) Give reporters their first thoughts from team HRC in advance of the announcement
(2) Setting expectations for the announcement and launch period
(3) Framing the HRC message and framing the race (I assume this is an ongoing operation V)
(4) Enjoy a Frida night drink before working more

The mask is fully off, anyone who does not see that does not want to see it and deserves nothing but contempt and derision.

I’m sick of being called names for noticing that stuff, it’s time for them to be called names for refusing to notice it. (hey Shep!)

 

 

Why the hell does the EPA need a “Diversity coordinator” much less 15 of them?

The Environmental Protection Agency is looking to hire 15 “Diversity and Inclusion Specialists,” each of whom will make $100,000 or more per year.

The agency will hire employees to set up diversity and inclusion “advisory bodies” across the country, according to a government job posting.

Federal bureaucracies are mostly about social engineering instead of their stated jobs.

Of course, with the EPA, I’d rather they used all their time in diversifying instead of mission creeping.

When farmers plow their land, it produces grooves called “furrows,” bordered by small ridges of dirt.

But in pursuit of new regulatory powers, federal agencies refer to the little dirt mounds by another term: “mini mountain ranges.” That seemingly absurd distinction is being used to impose more federal control over private land use decisions made by U.S. farmers.

Furrows are “mini-mountains ranges”? Jeez, that after regulating puddles as “waterways”.

I’d tell them they should investigate some different not-so-mini-mountains that my dog produces, but I can’t afford the $10,000/day fines they’d probably assess against me for allowing environmental dogradation.

 

The Dems, not happy with all that ‘freedom’ on the internet, are working on regulating every, last place that does not go along with them. This is about people on the ‘tubes who don’t charge for views.

His tweet was in response to a story about Republicans such as the Koch brothers using an internet “loophole” Ravel wants to close that allows unregulated online videos and promotions of campaigns and policies.

That ‘loophole’ is called freedom of speech, if they get to regulate it, that’ll be directed at me. Too bad our betters have decided we have too much of it (not them, just We Teh Peepul) so we know the GOP won’t do shit. They don’t like me anymore than Nancy Pelosi does. Less actually, she uses me for fund-raising and laughing at.

We tried the Tea Party, it was polite, well-behaved and neat and we were viciously attacked for it by our fine betters in the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. Now we have Trump, and they’re attacking him and us even more viciously. I wonder what’s next?

Is there some parallel in history? (via wirecutter)

On this day in 1774, the First Continental Congress sends a respectful petition to King George III to inform his majesty that if it had not been for the acts of oppression forced upon the colonies by the British Parliament, the American people would be standing behind British rule.

Huh. What happened after that?
