I’m a fool, for I believed your lies
But now I’ve seen through your disguise
Who needs, well I don’t need, who needs you?

By any other name.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yet all that is what daily we hear and read.

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

Where is that helping hand?

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

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

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

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

Which led us to:

 

Same story, same words, different reactions.

Fakenewser Extraordinaire is up in arms!

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

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

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

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

Here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

CNN finally found some Fake News they cannot get behind!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Compare and contrast

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

That particular murderous dictator pays attention to reality.

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

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

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

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

 

Now here’s my question.

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

And in related news…

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

Look at this

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

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

 

This one has to be tough for lefties.

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

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

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

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

 

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

I remember vomiting like this.

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

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

 

 

“Reality” is winning on points, but sooner or later reality will stage a comeback. Sorta like how it took a few decades before the reality that the Roman Empire had fallen was obvious to everybody.

First, I’m gonna disagree on this.

 

That’s not irony, that’s reality. Socialism always costs more than free enterprise. It’s just axiomatic.

The comment are funny too. Some people get very upset when you make fun of their religion.

 

Why didn’t we hear about this until now?

A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.

And what happened to that issue?

The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,”

Buried. Notice they were “outside the retention time”. In other words, the FBI worded the subpoenas so narrowly that anything not from a certain window (probably 2/1/15 3pm-2/1/15 3:05PM would be my guess) so that they could ignore what they found.

Lest we forget, the DO”J” is full of a bunch of lawless assholes and they made the FBI into Hillary’s Bitches.

 

Some people just refuse to accept reality.

Obamacare overhaul similarly fails, no honest analyst will be able to blame conservatives. Blame will belong wholly to centrist Republicans…

In every election campaign since 2010, every Republican has pledged to repeal Obamacare. Since Republicans rode that promise to a House majority that year, the House has voted more than 90 times for repeal (symbolic votes, all, under President Barack Obama). Now the Freedom Caucus has announced its support for an amended repeal bill, Republicans are closer than ever to finally delivering on their promise. It relies only on centrists to rejoin their party on this crucial issue for which the voters put them in office.

“Centrists” are just members in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. They do not want to lose the power over us that Obamacare gives them. If they don’t control our lives, they cannot demand bribes and kickbacks on how they dole out our rights.

The GOP has lied to us. It’s much harder to keep Obamacare going than to get rid of it. So they’re busy making sure it does not go away.

Our best hope is the GOP fucks us again so Trump just undoes all the memoes, phone calls and executive orders Obama did to keep it from imploding.

 

I watched Shep for a few minutes the other day, he was talking about Venezuela and he acted as if the protestors were getting violent. He showed them in Gas Masks!!!!!!!!! but he called them, “Masks”, as in, “Protestors wearing masks!!!!!!” and then a few images of violent protestors building barricades.

Then he showed gov’t folks shooting tear gas into the crowds. Shep did not notice or mention that maybe, just fucking maybe Shep you leftist piece of shit, the protestors were wearing those “masks” because the murderous forces of the murderous dictator/nee secret policeman were murdering protestors!

Repression in Caracas on Wednesday was probably the worst in three weeks of protests. While usually satisfied with choking us but allowing us some margin of movement, this time they used enough tear gas to make us reconsider coming back, or prevent a gathering altogether.

Yesterday, Juan Pablo Pernalete Llovera, a 20-year old student, was murdered. A tear gas canister hit him in the chest as he protested in Altamira and, sadly, he arrived at Salud Chacao with no vital signs.

Nah. To the piece of shit leftists in Minitrue (hey Shep!), the forces of a socialist gov’t are ‘good’, protestors against them are ‘bad’.

When they don’t ignore it. Venezuela is exploding and it was blatantly obvious that it was going to happen to everyone except our Elites!, cuz they’re idiots.

 

Mister We Could Use A Man Like Phillip Of Macedon Again!

Protesters have stormed the parliament of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats in a bid to stop the formation of a new government.

See, they’re thinking.

I wonder how long until that happens here and how Minitrue will blame me when it’s masked leftists doing it. Most righties will just ignore them. There is no rule of law, why pretend we still have it and act as if Congress is important? Only our imperial judiciary and Trump matter right now. Congress has spent the last decades abdicating their responsibilities, ever since Clinton’s impeachment when they realized the media was more powerful.

 

Okay, I don’t know French attitudes, but this makes me laugh. Macron is the far leftist left in the race against the FAR RIGHT HATER!!!!! LePen.

 

“In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland,” Macron told reporters of several regional French newspapers including Ouest-France. “You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.”
Macron’s comment indicates the staunchly pro-EU candidate, who promises to reassert France’s leading position within the bloc and play an integral role in shaping its future, will actively enforce the bloc’s democratic liberal values at a time when EU leaders are faced with reshaping and shoring up solidarity within the union pre-Brexit.

That’s probably a winner, the EU was supposed to be a way for France to rule Europe, they can’t allow them lowlife Poles and Hungarians to think they control their countries!

Recall, the Hungarians are not allowing Muslim refugees in their country. They even respond to violence with violence! All right thinking people know that you don’t counter violence with violence! You figure out how you angered the poor-downtrodden people and appease them. Unless they’re not an approved lefty group, then you crush them.

 

Okay, I’d say this is a loser.

The National Front’s history of anti-Semitism intruded on the French election campaign again on Friday as polls suggested front-runner Emmanuel Macron’s 20-point lead may be narrowing a touch.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right party forced acting president Jean-Francois Jalkh to step aside after comments from 17 years ago questioning the Holocaust resurfaced in the French media,

If there’s one thing most French don’t care about it’s who hates the people from That Shitty Little Country. It is pretty funny that the lefties who hate Jews as much as most Arabs are acting all, “Oooh, look at the anti-Semitism!”

 

Speaking of Nazis, I think I found the original maker of Billy Bier.

once was an actual Hitler of shithead relatives — and no, not that one, either. In a quirky twist of fate, the Universe saddled even that goose-stepping genocidal maniac with a slimy, opportunistic, clingy black sheep to ruin his Christmases: Adolf’s “loathsome nephew,” Willy Hitler…

On the strength of his last name alone, Willy gained access to all the parties, women, and cocktail shrimp Berlin had to offer. It was wild. Gaggles of Hitler groupies lined up for the chance to get their Aryan mitts on Willy’s little willy. On the family side, however, things weren’t going too great. Dissatisfied with his crappy job at the bank, Willy asked Uncle Adolf to help him get a better grip on those evil coattails of his. It was around this time that the fuhrer starting referring to Willy as “my loathsome nephew” and accusing him of trying to “climb on my back.”

Sounds like a cross between Billy Carter and Roger Clinton.

 

This is fucked up. I’m not sure who the players are, I do know the TWP are white nationalists but I don’t know anything else about them and I’m not sure if Anti-fa are involved or just mentioned later on. Since the organizers for the rally are all Dems, I’m gonna guess they’re not anti-fascist, just anti-other-people’s-fascists. Like in Iraq how Sunnis liked Sunni terrorists and Shiites liked Shiite terrorists.

Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.

In a statement posted to the group’s Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.

In the statement, she said “unforeseen credible threats” forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.

I do have high hopes for this though.

“The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict.

Now if we could just get the Westoro Baptist FreakShow to get involved we could have some guilt-free violence to watch. Watching nazis beat fascists is hilarious.

 

Has anybody heard about this?

An American paramedic working with a security watchdog in eastern Ukraine has been killed after the vehicle he was in drove over a mine.

The US citizen, who has not been named, was part of a patrol involved in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Special Monitoring mission in the country.

Two other monitors, a German and a Czech, were injured in the blast, near Luhansk. It has led US officials to call for a ‘full, transparent investigation’.

 

Why haven’t we heard of an American being killed by Tsar Putin I’s cossacks?

But since signing deal the sides appear stuck in a stalemate broken periodically by sharp resurgences of fighting that Kiev and the Kremlin accuse each other of instigating.

Tillerson told Poroshenko that although Washington wanted better ties with Moscow, ‘Russia´s actions in eastern Ukraine remain an obstacle’.

On Monday Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, also called for an investigation to be conducted into the explosion.

Oh, the Russians are going to investigate!

We could lend them some of our crack FBI agents from the Hillary Task Force!!!!, they’re good at covering up crimes.

 

Canada is getting a look at the reality that is their place in the world.

Nobody’s going to invade Canada unless they’re already at war with us, but Canada cannot project power and Russia wants the oil under Arctic ice that Canada wants.

Guess who’s most likely going to get it?

Russia unveils its newest Arctic base

Russia has unveiled a new military base as part of its buildup in the Arctic region, and has provided a tour — albeit a virtual one on your computer.

The tsar willing to go to war to get it. Canada surely isn’t.

Funny, what with their problems with illegal immigration and now a warlike neighbor, they could use a Trump. But they have a Kelso.

 

The reality of the state of politics in America.

A two-bit political gadfly named Thomas Lopez-Pierre has been running for City Council on an outrageous platform that calls for stopping “greedy Jewish landlords” from committing “ethnic cleansing” against blacks.

Yawn. Typical Democrat so far.

as Jewish groups and leaders demanded he be booted out of the Democratic Party.

Wait, why? Isn’t that the official Democrat Party Platform? Black Lives Matter, not zionist lives.

Here’s where I wonder if he’s planning on joining the GOP.

In the midst of this firestorm a GoFundMe called “Stop Thomas Lopez-Pierre Hate Campaign” suddenly popped up and was so successful, it raised $5,781.

But anyone who donated hoping to actually stop Lopez-Pierre is going to be sorely disappointed — because the page was created by the candidate himself to scam money from his foes.

“I call it bait and switch,” Lopez-Pierre actually bragged to The Post.

“I intend to use the money to pay for my marketing expenses. The people who are doing this [donating] oppose me. I thank them for their support.”

How is that different from winning election after election and raking in $millions in donations precisely to repeal Obamacare and then not repealing Obamacare? How about how they boned us on illegal immigration?

So a Dem platform with GOP tactics. A Centrist!

 

I’m all for this.

And now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has examined what happens to the data that’s collected from students using technology in the classroom. They released the results of an extensive survey covering students in grades K-12.

What they found was that little work has been done to protect the privacy of the student information that is collected from both the classroom and from using the online software the schools issue for use at home on the students’ own devices. They found that while many school districts have embraced technology and all of the benefits it can bring to the schools and students, often little thought has been given to one of the unintended consequences of this: the students’ privacy.

School is for learning. Let them learn what their betters think of them. Right now, they seem to think our fine betters give a shit about them. That’s a dangerous belief. Our betters only care about our voting for them, sending them money and shutting the fuck up.

 

Speaking of schools and learning, is Duke actually going to stop going all in on social justice and SCIENCE!!!!!! and actually do some science?

We have another study from Duke University that shows groundwater isn’t being polluted by fracking, despite the cries from the environmentalists that the process, which is used to tap into natural gas resources. It’s been the crux of their narrative against this sector of the economy that’s rapidly growing throughout the country. The study was three years in the making, peer reviewed, and was recently published in the European journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

 

Heretics! Burn them! They do have to state the obvious to try to keep up their SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!! cred.

They did say that surface water might be impacted due to spills:

So what you’re saying is that spilling oil on the ground means there will be oil on the ground and it could run into waterways that go through the ground? The deuce you say!

 

Macauley Culkins parents are the scum of the Earth and should be jailed, at least, for what they did to their kid.

If, like so many pop fans, you have always yearned to see a three-minute music video that brings together Bill Clinton, Garfield’s cartoon owner Jon Arbuckle and a Viagra-taking George Washington wearing a virtual reality headset, then your agonizing wait is finally over…

The video features the founding father apparently pleasuring himself to the vision of Kurt Cobain—played by Macaulay Culkin—being whipped, nailed to a cross and declared “King of the Cucks.”

 

Poor bastid. First his parents took all his money and then they sold him to Michael Jackson. So sad.

 

Road Trip?

Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva.

More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland…

Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.

Michael Starrett, Heritage Council Chief Executive, said: ‘HeritageMaps.ie a fantastic tool for learning, discussion and interpretation, making cultural data available to everyone.

Vulvoyage!

 

At least, unlike the Mona Lisa, we know why she’s smiling.

 

Sometimes things that seem so brilliant are the opposite.

Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him.

That epitomizes the sentiment most people have had, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

 

I did this with a 72 Chevelle Malibu and a dumpster instead of a bicycle and a wall.

The girl bending over into her car turned around just as I hit the dumpster at about 5mph. I didn’t get her number.

Seriously, we watched it happening, but it’s still freaking hard to believe where we are.

IMPORTANT, I FORGOT TO POST THIS, UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In relation to the post the other day about that judge deciding that Trump has to fund what that judge wants him to fund we see something I forgot about.

President Obama’s Justice Department on Wednesday threatened to pull federal education dollars from North Carolina if the state does not repeal a law prohibiting people from using public restrooms of the opposite sex.

See, that was pushing a leftist priority so perfectly in accord with the Living Constitution!

Just Fixin’ It

 

Now back to our post, already in progress!

The punk-ass bitches in Berkeley have managed to intimidate people with opposing viewpoints from actually airing their viewpoints in Berkeley’s Safe Space!

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter told Fox News on Wednesday she would no longer give a planned speech at UC Berkeley after Young America’s Foundation pulled its support for the event amid threats of violence, calling her decision “a dark day for free speech in America.”…

“I looked over my shoulder and my allies had joined the other team,” Coulter said in an email.

I don’t blame Ann, I blame the people who are using gov’t power to shut up their opponents. I am a little disappointed in the Young American’s Foundation, but it’s hard when the mayor of your city is after your ass.

 

We’re much closer to punching back twice as hard.

Weasel Zippers links the Wash Post so I don’t have to.

Trump is talking to Congress, telling them about what’s going on.

How do fakenewser extraordinaire (no, not the fakenewser in NY and not, not the one in DC, the other one) characterize it?

Ostensibly the reason for the trip was a classified briefing on the growing threat posed by North Korea and its quest for nuclear weapons.

Ostensibly. But the Democrats and the lying liars at CNN know what the deal really is.

“We learned nothing you couldn’t read in the newspaper,” Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley told CNN’s Erin Burnett Wednesday night. “It felt more like a dog-and-pony show to me than anything else,” Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I guess it has something to do with this 100 days in office.”

I’m gonna have to agree with the first sentence. Anything the Democrats learned we were going to see in the newspaper.

While we’ve spent a long time telling our enemies what we’re going to do, things work much better when it comes as a surprise.

I love this one from minitrue outlet, the Hill. In a piece about how Trump is going to cause WWIII, they get an “expert” to explain how much of a poopy-head and war-monger he is.

Beyond courting this calamity, a U.S. attack on North Korea would violate a hallowed principle of international law.  The United Nations Charter allows an attack on a sovereign nation in just two cases — if authorized by the U.N. Security Council or if in self-defense after an armed attack

The UN? They get to decide when we go to war? Don’t they have some sex slaves to exploit somewhere?

This principle of imminence found its most influential expression in an 1842 letter by Secretary of State Daniel Webster. After the British justified an attack on U.S. territory as an act of self-defense, Webster delivered a famous rebuttal: Self-defense can justify one nation’s invasion of another only if the “necessity of that self-defence is instant, overwhelming, and leaving no choice of means, and no moment for deliberation.”

Ooooh, pulling out the big guns! Daniel Webster (defeater of the devil), says Trump is a poppy-head!

No serious observer has suggested North Korea and its bellicose leader pose an imminent danger to our people or territory.

Ummmmmmmm

Although North Korea is not targeting the UK, there mounting concerns that North Korea could soon pose a nuclear threat to America’s west coast.

The police state is known to be accelerating its nuclear testing as well as increasing its nuclear weapons capabilities. North Korea carried out two nuclear tests last year.

It is believed that the North Korea is testing technology which would enable it to launch long-range missiles capable of targeting the US.

If China wants them to hit America, they’ll have Chinese missiles.

And screw our allies.

Japanese citizens will have just 10 minutes to prepare a North Korean ballistic missile attack, authorities in the country have warned…

A ballistic missile would likely take around 10 minutes to travel 1,600 km (1,000 miles) from its launch pad in North Korea to Okinawa, it adds, citing a launch in February last year which took that length of time to fly over the Japanese island.

 

Back to the first, idiotic, link I’m busy making fun of, we have examples.

In flouting the requirement of imminence, the Trump administration would not be the first to reject Webster’s vision. But the historical precedents for claims of anticipatory self-defense to counter non-imminent threats are a shameful lot.

Now, I understand it’s a minitrue outlet, but any sane and honest person would include Obama’s many bombings in that “shameful lot”, but you know, Minitrue.

the Austro-Hungarian Empire weighed a preemptive war against Serbian aggression, a prelude to the attack that later touched off World War I. The Nazis claimed anticipatory self-defense to justify their invasions of Norway and the Soviet Union. And much closer to home, President George W. Bush invoked the doctrine of preemptive self-defense in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

 

Huh, now which ones did he leave out?

Like bombing Libya, Somalia, Syria, going back into Iraq after declaring victory, Yemen and Pakistan.

And Obama did those without involving Congress.

But Bush is Hitler is Franz Ferdinand.

I wonder why he didn’t include Stalin’s disastrous attack against a non-imminent threat? How about Kennedy’s disastrous attack against a non-imminent threat? How about Truman’s initial disastrous attack on a non-imminent threat in Korea? How about Clinton’s two, Someone’s Testifying In A Criminal Case About Me, bombings?

After watching CNN and much of Foxnews (Hey Shep!) act as if it’s Trump who’s to blame for the bellicosity of the poofy-stomached maniac in North Korea and the Chinese are the voices of reason, well, I’m the opposite of gruntled.

There should be a word for that.

 

In talking about the latest American to be detained in a murderous, commie-owned, slave-plantation, DaTech Guy says,

I’m Sorry But Traveling to North Korea has Darwin Award Written all over it

Yeah but, as he notes, here’s the kicker.

Last year, Otto Warmbier, then a 21-year-old University of Virginia student from Cincinnati, was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour after confessing to trying to steal a propaganda banner.

That guy thought North Korea is just America with funny-looking people. He had absolutely no idea that his little bit of ‘mischief’ in getting a ‘cool souvenir’ could net him 15 years of living in a prison within a prison-country.

He deserves every second of it. Let him spend some time explaining to the prisoners of the murderous, commie dictatorship that it’s Trumps’ fault.

 

Eh, the world is blowing up. We saw it coming and it’s not going away so let’s see some non-violent, pretty funny but still pretty disturbing blowings up.

 

The Mets signed Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, he didn’t look good in the run-up to the season, but they stuck him in single-A.

He hit a home-run on the first pitch of his first at-bat

And now he’s tearing up single-A ball.

Tim Tebow looks like he’s learning to hit. Could a promotion in the Mets farm system be next?

Tebow tripled — on a headfirst slide — and singled twice, scoring two runs as the Single-A Columbia Fireflies beat the Asheville Tourists 5-0 on Wednesday.

It was Tebow’s third multihit game since Friday, as the 29-year-old followed up on his best week in the minors with more consistency at the plate. In his past six games, Tebow is batting .450 (9-for-20).

Man do I hope he makes the bigs, the gnashing of teeth and hate for a fucking guy who just wants to play ball will be funny.

Also infuriating as they call him ‘intolerant’ as they refuse to tolerate his continued stubbornness in having the audacity to be Tim Tebow. I might even have to tune into ESPN just to see them destroy any last possibility of their being taken seriously.

 

I saw this headline and thought, “Of course!”

Proposed shooting range with bar faces opposition from local residents

A public meeting in Willowbrook, Ill. Monday evening proved many residents think having firearms and alcohol under the same roof is a recipe for disaster

But they weren’t upset they weren’t also selling tobacco! They actually think people are going to go get drunk and shoot each other.

I’m not sure why they’re upset over that. If that idiotic and anti-common-sense notion were true, it would cut down on gun-ownership as they shoot each other.

 

See, this is why I shop at Amazon.

Following a “bad experience” at a Books-A-Million outlet near his Louisiana home, the 71-year-old Lentz decided to retaliate in a unique way.

No, the septuagenarian did not stage a boycott or write a strongly worded letter to the local newspaper.

Instead, Lentz visited the Monroe business and left dildos on the shelves of the store’s Religion section.

 

I’d run out dildos pretty quickly otherwise, but I’d leave them in the political section.

 

Headline

Student testifies about threesome with his teachers

Testimony

It was awesome!

I know some of you are calling me an asshole.

Perhaps. Doesn’t make me wrong though.

 

A few weeks ago I bought some Chips Ahoy cookies for the first time in years. They sucked. It tasted like pressed sawdust coated with sugar and grease. I was going to get Oreos, but they have like 9 different kinds of freaking Oreo so I just got Chips Ahoy.  Now, I don’t eat cookies very often, but when I do Chips Ahoy and Oreos are my go-to cookie.

Which leads to this.

The Oreo cookies of his youth were no more, and whatever replaced them tasted like dirt. It was a bold opinion, but he had talking points. Oreos tasted “chalky,” he said, “flavorless,” and “they’re made in Mexico now.” That last point is half-true, but still, America’s favorite cookie switches up its recipe and there isn’t a national outcry?…

I turned to the internet. Reddit was annoyingly quiet on the topic, but when I typed “Oreo cookies taste” into Google, the first autofill was “different.” The top result of that search is a Facebook comment from July that read, “The Oreos suddenly taste different. Like cheap cookies with that disgusting undertaste.” It was posted on Oreos’ official Facebook page from a woman in Texas — and Oreos replied that they hadn’t made any changes to the recipe.

I wasn’t sure until I saw the Official Denial!!!!!!!!!! The kiss of death.

Uckfay Emay.

Now what am I going to do with my milk when I run out of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch?

Nice handbasket though.

Imagine trying to explain this to say, Ben Franklin or Tom Paine. That’s a site called, “Law Officer”, I assume it’s for cops.

So Providence pols passed a law and the cops are upset. I’ll be in italics.

Here are some of the items that the future victims of Providence Crime need to be aware of:

  1. Traffic stops can no longer be used as probable cause to investigate further criminal activity. (Good. I don’t see how me having a broken tail light means you can give me a tonsillectomy by going in through my ass.)

  2. Police may not ask for identification more than once including “police may not consider an individual’s lack of proof of identification or failure to respond to a request for identifying information as probable cause or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.” (Good. Your Papers Please! annoys me. Show me the law that says I need to carry ID to make a cop happy)

  3. Police may not photograph anyone below the age of 18 and if a photo (under certain guidelines) is allowed, it must be destroyed in 90 days. (Why are cops photographing anybody? if you have a mugshot, that’s one thing)

  4. “Police may not inquire about an individual’s immigration status.” (Good, if that’s before being arrested, See #2, not good if it’s after)

  5. There is an entire appeal process for anyone listed as a gang member to not be listed as a gang member.  (Oh no! You mean if you cops make a mistake someone can get off your list? This makes me wonder what official status this “gang list” has. I can see having it listed on his mugsheet that he’s been connected with gang activity but what’s the ‘gang list’? Unless you’re going after a specific gang and need a list of its members.)

  6. “If an individual has no convictions within a two-year period after their name has been placed on the “gang list,” and no new evidence meeting the criteria for inclusion on the “gang list” has been found, the name shall be removed and all related records destroyed.” (I’m not sure what this ‘gang list’ is, but if it has official status, I’d like to see the statute that gives it that status. If it’s like the No-Fly list, well, I don’t like “Lists” that restrict freedom that do not involve convictions)

 

I really don’t like 1 and 2 and that “gang list” sort of scares me.

This is fucked up. I try to stay informed but I had no idea this was going on.

The Maduro regime is killing young Venezuelans in order to provoke a violent response for the opposition… Rather than falling into the trap, nonviolent opposition is organizing a nonviolent silent march later today to remember those killed and demand justice…

Shooting young Venezuelans in the head to terrorize demonstrators and provoke a response has been a Maduro regime tactic since at least February 2014.

Beginning on February 12, 2014 regime agents shot Bassil Alejandro Dacosta, age 24 in the head. One of the young students who carried Bassil off after he was shot was Robert Redman, age 28, who reported later that day over twitter: “Today I was hit with a rock in the back, a helmet in my nose. I swallowed tear-gas, Carried the kid who died, and what did you do?” That same day he was also gunned down by Maduro’s colectivos, working in concert with his security forces, and murdered. The killings continued.

A few of the victims.

I hate murderous dictators. I really do.

I also hate our fine media betters who are busy either whitewashing their progressive hero or ignoring his bodycount.

 

It’s funny, when others say this they’re called haters.

Doctor accused of mutilating genitals of young girls defends procedure as religious practice.

Although from what I know, it’s not religious, it’s used by the cultures who did it before Islam.

 

Remember when the Berkeley cops let their fascists attack people for speech they don’t like?

No, not that time, the other time. No, not that time.  I’m talking about Milo. Geez.

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the anti-fascist (sic) Facebook group, By Any Means Necessary, which orchestrated the riots that occurred ahead of a scheduled lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Does that show collusion? I mean, it’s California and they were stopping speech CA doesn’t like, but I sometimes like to think about what a country with a rule of law and a Constitution would do.

 

It’s funny how our worldly lefties just do not understand the rest of the world.  Fake black person goes to Africa, Africans do not think it’s funny that whitey claims to be black.

Police flanked Ms Dolezal’s first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had ‘an authentic black identity’ despite admitting to being ‘biologically white’.

In South Africa. That’s funny.

I will say I agree with her here.

The shamed black activist, who now calls herself Nkechi Amare Diallo, outraged her young black audience in Johannesburg after equating her claim to being ‘trans-black’ with the trans-gender experience of Caitlyn Jenner.

Both are ridiculous people with mental health issues who are using their “condition” to make money and get on TV and should not be “praised”.

I disagree with this guy.

One member of the audience in Johannesburg mocked Ms Dolezal by saying ‘only a white person could claim blackness and tour the world talking to blacks about blackness’

 

Don’t blame that shit on whitey, I’d say it takes a lefty to condescend that much.

 

Little known Bible fact. Moses loved surfing.

Have we left the Funniest End of Civilization Ever and moved on to the most Absurd?

I know I’m harping on it, but how can people even pretend our social, moral, political and intellectual betters (The Elite!!!) are not a bunch of booger-eating morons?

 

Via this curmudgeon, we find out that something told as a joke in America is in danger of becoming reality in Sweden. One of Sweden’s ‘big’ newspapers had this to say

Per a translation from Breitbart London, Franchell’s opinion piece referred to automobiles as “effective murder machines” that must be banned at once if our world leaders are truly committed to the cause of fighting terrorism.

 Instead, it is cars — which she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”.

 Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance”, writes Ms. Franchell.

 “It just isn’t reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into one of Stockholm’s busiest streets on a Friday afternoon right before Easter.”

 

It’s not reasonable that a truck could be driven into a city.  Could she get any more stupider?

Yes!

 “Cars are driven largely by men so by giving a lot of space to cars; we’re giving a lot of space to men — at the expense of women,” Karolina Skog explained.

Is she planning for the post-Xtianity, Muslim Sweden where women are not allowed to drive? I know the rest of Sweden is.

A programme to rehabilitate former Isis fighters and other extremists with housing, employment, education and financial support is being trialled in Sweden.

Local authorities in the city of Lund say the controversial measures aim to reintegrate returned jihadis into society and prevent them reverting to their former networks.

From vikings to that. Sad.

 

Shit. The PKK (Kurdish terrorists) had been acting less terroristy lately.

DIYARBAKIR: Five Turkish police officers and two civilians were killed on Monday in a car bombing outside the southeastern city of Diyarbakir blamed on Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) rebels, the government said.

I don’t care who did what to them, terrorism is never acceptable.

Apparently, there is some dispute about who did it.

A KURDISH splinter group claimed responsibility yesterday for Sunday’s suicide car bombing that killed 37 people in Ankara.

The Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK), an extremist rival of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), specialises in attacks on civilians and rejects the PKK’s “humanist” politics…

TAK said on its website that the atrocity was revenge for Turkish military operations against Kurdish communities in the country’s south-east and named the perpetrator as Seher Cagla Demir, “the first female suicide bomber in our ranks.”

The PKK better shut that shit down or they’re gonna lose lots of friends.

 

Bring Back Our Girls!!!!! So we can blow them up!

The use of child suicide bombers by the insurgents of Boko Haram has surged, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said on Wednesday.

Since January 2014, 117 children – more than 80 per cent of them girls – have been used in such attacks in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon, UNICEF said in a new report.

That’s horrific. Even worse is that they’re doing something UNICEF finds terrible (UNICEF is, of course, part of the UN. They’re big on sexual slavery)

 

Remember when Putin Was Not Going To Meet With Tillerson Because That Idiot Trump Screwed Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Yeah, about that.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is meeting on Wednesday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to reports.

Huh. Acting strong and a little crazy gets tsars and sultans attention. Whodathunkthat? Certainly not the Obama Smirt Duhplomacy Team.

With violence raging in Kiev, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has trying to reach his Ukrainian counterpart on the phone to urge restraint against civilian protesters – but no one is picking up, U.S. officials said today.

Indications are that the Ukrainian government’s violent crackdown against protesters in Kiev have involved Interior Ministry forces and not military troops, officials said.

That was Putin’s tsarling before he was ousted in the Maiden Protests.

It’s absurd to pretend Putin is anything but unhappy that Obama is gone and his replacement isn’t an easily and often bribed Hillary.

 

Okay, I hope Trump is a lot smarter than this and it’s just a bunch of minitrudiots and former Obamorons saying this idiocy. Surely Tillerson knows better.

U.S. President Donald Trump is finding little support among his Asian allies — both publicly and behind the scenes — as he weighs a military attack on North Korea after unilaterally firing missiles on Syria.

No matter what anybody says about China being mad at the Norks, China owns North Korea in fee simple. An attack on the Norks means war with China. They fought a war over North Korea against the POTUS who nuked a fucking country.

I really cannot figure out why people do not accept that China did not send millions of their soldiers to fight a war only to just bring them home afterward. Especially considering that China and Japan have been fighting over and up and down the Korean peninsula for as long as there’s been a China, Japan and Korea.

 

Our Fine Media Betters: Hiding Leftist Perfidy Is Job 1!!!!!!!!!

What should the police find in all those acres of debris?  A dead body, not surprisingly, nestled among all the garbage-barge-like flotsam and jetsam such Occupy-inspired campout protests always leave in their wake.

The body was of a California man who hung out at protests as an “activist” and who had been reported missing by his stepbrother last October.  It was found in the Cannonball River, where it had been left among all the detritus of the protesters, apparently none of them particularly caring, yet all full of self-righteous virtuousness about saving the earth as their demonstration spun into chaos.

 

I had to listen to our fuckheads in minitrue talk about The Racism, Hate and Incipient Violence at Tea Party events as they excuse the violence and felonies at “mostly peaceful” lefty protests.

 

Speaking of our fine media betters, it’s funny how often they say what they mean while being absurd that people do not accept that’s who they are.

On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews repeatedly analogized the Trump family to the Tsarist Romanov family that ruled Russia. Matthews ominously concluded, “we know what happened to the Romanovs.”

The Romanovs were killed by commies like Matthews.

 

I’ve pretty much stopped watching the news, are any of them putting out corrections over a month of calling Trump a liar?

From the Wash Post article links

This is the clearest evidence so far that the FBI had reason to believe during the 2016 presidential campaign that a Trump campaign adviser was in touch with Russian agents. Such contacts are now at the center of an investigation into whether the campaign coordinated with the Russian government to swing the election in Trump’s favor.

So I’m guessing no corrections. That should have read,

This is the clearest evidence so far that Obama wiretapped  Trump. Such wiretapping had been claimed by Trump and should be at the center of an investigation into whether the Obama admin coordinated with the Hillary campaign and her minitrue supporters to swing the election in Hillary’s favor”

but the Wash Post is nothing if not a bunch of lying fakenewsers.

 

Funny and absurd! Some Texas legislator wanted to make fun of another bill by a legislator from a rival party so she

Rep. Jessica Farrar, D-Houston, is making a point about legislation that restricts women’s access to healthcare and abortions by proposing to fine men $100 when they masturbate. Alongside the penalty for wasting semen not resulting in a pregnancy, Farrar’s bill would require a “medically unnecessary digital rectal exam” before any man undergoes a vasectomy or can be prescribed Viagra.

But then an absurd thing happened. I mean, a more absurd thing happened.

The bill has now made its way into the hands of the Texas State Affairs Committee on Tuesday.

The committee is typically the panel that hears abortion-related legislation and it will now address Farrar’s House Bill 4620, which is named the “Men’s Right to Know Act.”

Heh. Texas Outlaws The Moron Lifestyle!

Which makes the next story even scarier.

Geez, don’t these people recycle! Alternate headline, Oft evil will shall evil mar.

A condom-clogged drainage pipe tipped off Austin, Texas, police to a prostitution ring that was operating under the guise of a massage parlor.

Hundreds of used rubbers were backing up a waste disposal unit connecting Jade Massage Parlor and its shopping strip to the city sewer system,

There’s a garbage can for those you know.

 

After I got back from the ‘massage parlor’ I decided to do some interior decorating but there were just two things on my mind.

 

It makes my living room all soft and warm.

Geez, Russia must be really broke, look what got repossessed!

 

 

No really, that’s a real question.

Let’s Find Out The Answer!

 

As we’re being overrun by wymyn AIs in our electronics, these people decided to go the too funny to be funny route.

Women have been made into servants once again. Except this time, they’re digital.

Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google’s Google Home peddle stereotypes of female subservience—which puts their “progressive” parent companies in a moral predicament.

So far it’s still sorta funny. I mean, they’re so worried about empowering wymyn that they’re worried about electronic servants pushing stereotypes, but this is where it gets too funny.

People often comment on the sexism inherent in these subservient bots’ female voices, but few have considered the real-life implications of the devices’ lackluster responses to sexual harassment.

That’s the part of the dystopian fantasy where you think, “The author has run out of ideas.” They’re worried about sexually harassing a phone. No, they’re worred about sexually harassing a fucking telephone.

Via the emperor, where you can read more serious commentary on this too ridiculous story.

 

The tubes were too predictable today, I only got a couple links with my surf but Doug Ross had some good stuff so here we go.

 

Russian Trolls Buzzfeed And You Won’t Believe How!

Buzzfeed is trying to get the lawsuit dismissed, and plaintiffs Aleksej Gubarev, XBT Holdings S.A., and Webzilla, Inc. filed a hilariously titled opposition to Buzzfeed’s motion. In a clear troll job, the court filing is titled, “SIX WAYS BUZZFEED HAS MISLED THE COURT (NUMBER TWO WILL AMAZE YOU) … AND A PICTURE OF A KITTEN.”

Okay, that one was not too funny to be funny. It was just right.

 

This was funny, but now it’s not.

A poll published by CBS News on Wednesday found 40 percent of respondents believe Russia interfered with the election to help President Trump win.

Just 13 percent of Republicans believe Russia meddled in the election, while 67 percent of Democrats said Moscow interfered.

Our fine media betters have been spending so much time on pushing this lie that it’s gone beyond pathetic and funny to dangerous.

 

This was sorta funny when they had Farfour the Mouse killed by some damn, dirty Jews, but it’s not funny that the UN agrees with them.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas wish to continue teaching children that the conflict with Israel is not over a two-state solution, but the “liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea,” which means the annihilation of Israel. The goal is for the students to believe that Israel is one big settlement that has no place in the Middle East.
Along with Hamas, Abbas and his PA plan to continue inculcating Palestinian children with the idea that they should look to terrorists who kill Jews as their role models. It might be illuminating if the conversation between Trump and Abbas were to be informed by these uncomfortable facts.

Farfour was funny, terrorists were so afraid of Disney they had Jews kill off their Mickey Mouse copy. Now they’re just demanding the right to kill Jews as EUnuchs and UNiks are saying, “Jews don’t want a two-state solution!”

 

The possibilities on this one are endless.

Is this actually too funny?

 

 

From the Barrel Of a Gun! (.45acp gun, not that wimpy 9mm crap)

 

I know this one is too funny to be funny.

Because that’s just so predictably stupid.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
