Science is a methodology to find or approximate reliable information. It is not something you “believe in” as though it were a religion.

Science can inform decision making. Science cannot make a decision.

Based on the best available data (-which is always subject to new observation), science can suggest that the novel coronavirus is more deadly than most influenza viruses. Science can suggest methods of reducing propagation of the virus among the population. Science can suggest probable outcomes from various policies.

Science cannot decide the relative importance of allowing greater economic activity versus suppressing activity in order to reduce the rate of viral infection. Science cannot balance the number of deaths from infection against the loss of livelihood due to unemployment, depression and suicide due to social isolation, or unintended consequences of delaying “elective” medical procedures. Science cannot assign moral value.

Take the classic “trolley problem” and its variants. In the trolley problem, science will tell you that if you flip the switch, a certain set of individuals will die, and that if you do nothing, a different set of individuals will die. Science does not tell you whether to flip the switch.

When a politician of any party tells you that they are making a policy decision based on science, they are implying a value. That implied value might be reasonable. You may agree with that value. But be aware that they sneaked in the value through the back door.

As with so many crises, the ‘rona has brought out both the best and the worst in people. But mostly the worst.

Like many others, I’m going a little stir-crazy under our “shelter in place” directive. Most of us understand that such directives are to a large extent necessary. But more than a few mayors and state governors have gotten carried away with their newfound emergency powers, and they’ve forgotten that they’re governing actual people. Ornery, independent, American people.

There’s a natural distribution to the level of inconvenience people are willing to put up with. Some will put up with virtually nothing. Most, it seems, will tolerate quite a bit of inconvenience… for a time. But every individual has their breaking point, and the longer the restrictions go on, the more people are going to be agitated. The less the impositions seem to have any rational basis, the less the people are going to tolerate much of anything. And then all hell will break loose.

The slow-roll of increasingly arbitrary guidance and restrictions has been most maddening.

Don’t wear a mask, it will only hurt. Wear a mask if you want. You should probably wear a mask. You must wear a mask in public in order to enter a store and buy anything.

Stay active, maybe go for a walk. But don’t go to a park. Or a beach. And maybe you can kayak in some states, but don’t go motorboating.

Liquor stores in PA were closed, but beer distributors are essential.

Stay in your Detroit-metro homes in the densely-populated hotspot, and don’t drive yourself out to your second home where you can safely hole-up for a while.

Lowe’s can stay open, but your locally-owned gardening center can’t. Or maybe you can go to a store that sells gardening supplies, but those seeds you wanted were roped off because the items are deemed “non-essential”.

In a moment of absolute absurdity in a universe where cancer biopsies are elective and therefore banned, Governor Whitmer defended the continued allowance of abortion services as “life sustaining”. Now, there’s a constitutional argument to be made about keeping abortion services available — it’s a constitutionally protected right that is time sensitive — but to be so tone deaf as to call abortion “life sustaining” is rather galling when, at least for a time, Michiganders were prevented from buying child car seats.

Accommodations must be made. Open the damned garden centers, and don’t rope anything off in a store that has so-far been deemed essential. Allow hairdressers and barbers to open by appointment only and with adequate sanitation efforts. Don’t make impossible demands of small businesses about open space in their employee break areas that aren’t exactly expandable at the government’s whim.
Governors and mayors are not going to be able to sustain adequate preventive measures if they act like petty dictators and deprive people of some modicum of normalcy. The longer the restrictions are in place, the more arbitrary the restrictions, and the more disruptive to normal life, the more turmoil governments are inviting for themselves. The natives are getting restless.

Seriously, the last three days I tubed my tube and found jack and shit to blog about, and jack was caught molesting some chiclets.

So today I tubed and this is what I got.

What’s going on in Zimbabwe?

Nobody seems too sure. But as best I can piece together (from articles such as this and this, for example), here’s the story.

Mugabe’s previous supporters have turned on him, and that’s what turned the tide. Those in charge of the coup don’t want it to be perceived as an actual coup. They prefer to follow parliamentary procedure and impeach him, which looks as though it could happen.

Yeah, it’s Africa, they’re just changing warlords, business as usual. They’re pretending to prefer to follow parliamentary procedure so the International Community!!!! can pretend they’re all legitimate and shit and give them that sweet, sweet aid money. Mugabe will play along so he gets to retire to France instead of being hacked to death with a machete and/or fed to hyenas.

 

When Erdogan faked his coup in Turkey I actually had high hopes it was an actual coup, I wrote:

Erdogan, budding thugocrat, says Army Is Couping Me!!!!!!

Usually when a thugocrat starts yelling that, he’s going to crack down while I say, “I wish”.

Should have gone with instinct A. Much of the world hasn’t changed much, culturally, in the last 1,000 years, they just have to mouth the proper shit to make leftist fools happy to get money from them (us).

 

Next up we have this interesting question.

Saudi public being prepared for alliance with Israel?

Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, chief of the general staff of the IDF, gave an unprecedented interview to an online Saudi news site where he said Israel is prepared to share intelligence on Iran with Saudi Arabia if the need arises.

Eisenkot also called Iran the “real and largest threat to the region,” echoing sentiments expressed by Saudi Arabia recently.

 

As I wrote the other day, sure the Saud’s fund the terrorist in the Palestinian Terrortory, but Iran is working on nukes when we saw the Saudi Terrorist in Chief would not answer the question about working with Israel.

I have to admit, Obama’s Smirt Duhplomacy did what even St. Jimmeh could not do, get the Saudis to be ‘friends’ with Israel.

It’s funny what helping the Saud’s enemies get nukes will do. Why they might even stop funding terrorists who kill Americans!

Sorry, I should give a spew warning when I write ridiculous shit.

 

Next up we have…uhhhh….. not a fucking thing. Nother person comes forward to accuse a Dem of sexual groping as the media tries to obfuscate the issue, more media ignoring Menendez, more Mitch Fucking McConnell keeping his bribehole shut about more Dem Senators’ problems. And of course, as we all knew, Gloria Allred is a lying sack of publicity-bitch.

Now, if Al Sharpton said Roy Moore was in on the Tawana Brawley rape, that I would blog about!

As I was wondering what to write about we should do next, Bones McCoy, playing a crazed gunman in Apache Uprising, said:

I say we kill em all and clear out while we got a chance.

 

Hard to argue with that.

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

Democrats move to formally censure Trump over Charlottesville

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

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

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

 

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

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

Mostly Peaceful!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yay!

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

High-Lariously Fucking Endy.

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

A bronze statue of George Washington ..

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

 

How violently fomentious have our fine media betters become?

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

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

It concludes with, “Start throwing rocks.”

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

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

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

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

Very scary.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Butt hey’re ignoring the important parts.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Nother curious thing that looks very clintonian.

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

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

 

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

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

But of course.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Mostly-Peaceful!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Lithium mines escape pollution laws

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

These obfuscators write this

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

Just after writing this

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

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

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

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

 

Where are we?

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

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

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

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

Now, back to our post!

I’ll let Wirecutter set it up.

We’re Here

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

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

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

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

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

New shocking video has emerged that corroborates this theory…

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

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

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

That sucks.

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

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

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

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

This is the shit sandwich on top of the cherry.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

I learned something new today!

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

Another link disappeared, but I wrote at the time

Important, Ironically Powerful Update! Here!

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

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

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

 

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

Conservatives Must Regulate Google And All of Silicon Valley Into Submission

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

They’re going to hate the new rules.

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Arguing with headlines!!!!!!!!

Obamacare lies resurfacing

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Seriously, it’s just too ridiculous to take seriously.

But we have to take it seriously, cuz we’re stuck in the ridiculousness.

First, let’s update a former ridiculous deal.

As everybody who tries to start any ‘conversation’ that our betters are always talking about finds out, they don’t want a conversation, they want you to accept their harangue.

At least one person was paying attention even as he attempted to get that conversation started.

Damore said that he was exploring all possible legal remedies and that before being fired he had submitted a charge to the US National Labor Relations Board accusing Google upper management of trying to shame him into silence.

“It’s illegal to retaliate against an NLRB charge,” he wrote in the email.

Knowledge is power.

 

FBI raids a prominent political person’s home! We hear about the deal via anonymous, Wash Post, sources, so take it for what it’s worth.

The search warrant seems to indicate that investigators may have had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all of the records requested in response to a grand jury subpoena, the Post reported, citing people familiar with the special counsel investigation.

He might refuse to turn over important docs?

Who does the think he is? Hillary Clinton?!?!?!?!?!

I will say that I think that anonymous source, if it exists, is lying. If it doesn’t exist, it’s just a ‘journalist’ saying what his Never Trump allies have told him to say.

This sounds a lot more likely.

Manafort has been voluntarily producing documents to congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. The search warrant indicates investigators may have argued to a federal judge they had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena.

It could also have been intended to send a message to President Trump’s former campaign chairman that he should not expect gentle treatment or legal courtesies from Mueller’s team.

Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI and the lawless assholes in the “Justice” Dept are nothing if not vindictive and lawless.

The special counsel is subject to the rules and regulations of the Department of Justice, and we don’t engage in fishing expeditions,” Rosenstein said when asked about the probe in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Liar, The fishing hole was fishless so now they’re trying to manufacture some fish.

 

A Quiz!!!!!!

Who said this

Orange-faced oaf Donald Trump threatens DPRK with “fire and fury,” yet delivers only wind and flatulence.

A. Wash Post/CNN

B. Nancy Pelosi/Chuck Schumer

C. Paul Ryan/Mitch McConnell

D.John McCain/Lyndsey Graham/Susan Collins

E. Fred Barnes/Bill Kristol/Rest of the NRO/Weekly Standard coup-crew?

F.The Norks.

Hah! Trick question. It’s G. All of the above!

But in this case it’s just the Norks channeling their inner Never-Trumper.

 

How much you wanna bet some significant percentage of those ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’ work either for the US federal gov’t (elected, appointed and GS) or our fine media?

Speaking of which, I really didn’t like Trump’s warning. Don’t warn like that, you say, “There will be consequences.”, if you say what you’ll do you have to do it. I don’t want to get involved militarily in North Korea unless it’s absolutely necessary to avert a nuclear war in South Korea.

I really don’t want a war in North Korea. There is no good outcome.

The most likely is war with China, don’t forget they went to war over the Norks with the only POTUS to use nuclear bombs in anger.

And if we win, what does that mean? We have to try to keep 10 million brainwashed slaves alive while we try to educate them about reality. It would make integrating Germany look easy and cheap.

It’ll cost $billions getting them food, $billions starting farms, $billions making power generation plants, $billions distributing that energy and $billions getting them the bare necessities of life like heat and clean water. South Korea can’t do it, the EUnuchs will screech at us as lefties put barriers in place to any modernization, “Haven’t they suffered enough? Now you’re destroying their environment just so they can have TVs?”

It would suck. I blame Truman.

 

 

Blood Batteries.

It heralds a future of clean energy, free from pollution but – though there can be no doubting the good intentions behind Environment Secretary Michael Gove’s announcement last month…

“You had good intentions. Let’s find you a nice job paving roads.”

Dorsen, just eight, is one of 40,000 children working daily in the mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The terrible price they will pay for our clean air is ruined health and a likely early death.

Our clean air? Idiot. The electricity we have to make and transport for vehicles is not made with unicorn farts.

Adult miners dig up to 600ft below the surface using basic tools, without protective clothing or modern machinery. Sometimes the children are sent down into the narrow makeshift chambers where there is constant danger of collapse.

Cobalt is such a health hazard that it has a respiratory disease named after it – cobalt lung, a form of pneumonia which causes coughing and leads to permanent incapacity and even death.

Even simply eating vegetables grown in local soil can cause vomiting and diarrhoea, thyroid damage and fatal lung diseases, while birds and fish cannot survive in the area.

I hate it when religious devotions means children have to die, it’s despicably unlikely but they’ve managed to make Africa an even worse shithole.

 

What the hell?

An earlier report into the crash under Poland’s previous government said the wing smashed into a birch tree close to the runway at the Smolensk military airport, causing the plane to crash.

“Damage to the left wing of the TU 154M was not started by colliding with the birch tree … The wing’s destruction started before the birch tree… [and] much damage to the left wing of the TU 154M plane carry traces of an explosion,” the commission said in a statement on Wednesday.

Who murdered them? It happened in Russia so this looks like a Tsar Putin I operation.

It added that Russian air traffic controllers deliberately misled Polish pilots about their location as they approached the runway of the Smolensk military airport in western Russia on 10 April 2010.

That’s so Putin. But with the US POTUS being all flexible with the Tsar, others were afraid to notice it. Now that the world is afraid of our poofy-haired maniac, maybe things will change.

 

Let’s end on contests. Since it’s so fucking ridiculous out there, you know what we’re gonna get.

First up, lying hack who fakenews wins Industry Award with hilarious reason!

 The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is giving its 2017 Presidential Award to CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who has emerged this year as a media star for his frequent clashes with the Trump administration.

Sorta funny so far, here’s where it gets ridiculous.

“For the past years, I’ve seen Jim Acosta in action. He’s covered President Obama and President Donald Trump, always pushing both sides to answer the tough questions,”

Sure, he “pushed” both sides. He pushed Obama’s dick into his mouth with a suckophantic fervor not seen since Debbie did Dallas, he pushes lying fakenews at Trump with a lying fervor not seen since Dan Rather left 60 Minutes.

 

True story, I went to Catholic school from 1st grade to my first year of college. In 7th or 8th grade, in 1976 or so, they had a priest teach us sex-ed. A nun taught the girls. I thought that was hilarious. This one is nearly as funny.

Next Miss Italia will be judged by a priest

I wonder, will Father Guido Sarducci come out of retirement? I hope so, he still owes someone the prize for Finding The Pope In The Pizza contest.  I found a bunch but couldn’t find the Avignon popes. Not sure if they weren’t there or just well hidden.

 

A New Olympics?

Dumoulin won an international competition on Microsoft Excel proficiency, earning $10,000 in prize money along the way.

Bureaucrat Olympics. Next year they’ll do a Powerpoint competition and synchronized stamping.
