Holy moly! We’re seeing new things! I mean, we’re seeing all the old things but with a new twist.

 

Trump is retweeting Judicial Watch discuss the coup, making me wonder if he’s actually considering my Fire the Dept of “Justice” and replace them with Judicial Watch” plan. That would be awesome.

 

Barr, the AG, told Congress about Obama and co. spying on Trump and the butthurt is awesome.

Evidence Free is going to make a comeback! Can Inadvertent and Incidental be far behind?

Let’s go back in timetwo years to March, 2017

Charles Krauthammer, who usually provides center-Right analysis, stated categorically that:
“It’s a farce, you know, the idea that everyone in this town – the media – the agencies – the congress – are running around chasing their tails on a story that everyone knows it’s not true, but having to pretend that it might be because he’s the President when we know how it’s going to end.”
This is absurd.

Yes, yes it was. I do have to wonder if it’s going to get more…how much more absurd it’s going to get. I’m not sure exactly how much more absurd we can survive.

Ace has a bunch of updates on his post that show testimony from years ago that maybe, possibly, could point out how it was an attempt at a coup. You should click over there, it’s in a much more compact form than the archives of various righty blogs from the last few years. The ‘new’ part is that our fine betters are having to notice it and/or twist into absurd contortions pretending they weren’t all in on that stupidity. They are facing a crisis. They might even have to admit to themselves that they were nitwits.

Now I wonder how happy normal Americans, even people who don’t like Trump, are going to react if there are no repercussions for felonious treason as our betters explain it away.

Is it time? Will there actually be repercussions? (warning: That’s a ‘busy’ page. Lots of stuff going on.)

The Justice Department’s watchdog is reportedly looking into an FBI informant who was a source for the bureau’s Russia investigation during the 2016 election cycle.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigators are asking questions about Stefan Halper, an American professor at Cambridge University, who met with members of President Trump’s campaign, according to the New York Times…

But wait! There’s still more!

Attorney General William Barr has assembled a “team” to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.

I have to admit, I’m even thinking of breaking out my GOP Voter Device for reals.

GOP Voter Device

I might even ‘arf’. I ain’t slapping my fins until there’s a perpwalk though.

Of course, it’s not really a Republican doing it, it’s Trump.

In spite of everything the GOP can do he’s still keeping on keeping on. They’re fighting him on his whole agenda, they just will not send him any legislation or even allow him to do what he’s trying to do. They don’t even ‘view with concern’ all the times the “Justice” Dept absolutely ignored everything judges involved in their cases had to say.

Especially considering this, someone from the RNC talking about Mueller.

MARTIN: What’s your reaction? I’m sure you have many, but what’s your top line reaction to today’s report?

DHILLON: Well, the president was completely vindicated and exonerated after two years of false allegations and really, what I consider to be a coup attempt against his presidency. But we are not cheering, most of us here on the Republican side, because it is atrocious and outrageous that the Department of Justice and the FBI and these other institutions were hijacked for a partisan end, and that for two years, our president was not allowed to fully carry out his agenda because of this cloud hanging over his presidency.

So far so good, then this

And I will also say on the other side, the Democrats in Congress don’t appear to be willing to let this go either. So I don’t think we’ve seen the end of this entire situation by a long stretch.

That’s code for, “We’ll work with our very good friends across the aisle to bring them to justice!”

It works better if you read that in John McCain’s voice and think of what legislation they’ll pass to make sure we can’t do what they did.

 

 

Here Trump’s going around Congress by doing a little creative funding,

White House officials will shift about $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build President Donald Trump’s controversial southern border wall

He’s reaching back to his construction days. Hmmmm, do you think he’ll pull out another of his faves, bankruptcy? How funny would it be if we went bankrupt. Our whole gov’t letting their phones go to voicemail. That could be a good alternative to an asteroid. Something to think about anyway.

 

Troll Level: Trumpian!

That’s getting around Congress by making them look like fools. Hypocritical fools.

Sure, he’s not very presidential in word but he surely is in deed and he’s fighting back. I’ll take it.

 

Semi-related,

Headline

There is no left left in Israel

The problem is that leftism has become utterly absurd and utterly untethered to reality.

America can survive that for a while, we’re strong and isolated from powerful enemies, Israel literally cannot survive pretending the community based reality is actual reality. They are constantly facing a literal existential threat so pretending idiocies can only ensure they’re all dead.

 

Evergreen headline:

SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR CONTINUES

Syria is a bucket of scorpions all killing each other as Allah intended.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army continues to make indiscriminate attacks:

Huh, I didn’t realize there was a cease-fire.

You want to hear something funny? I wrote that before I read this

The Observatory said 10 people were killed in Tuesday’s attack in a “demilitarized” zone set up under the Turkish-Russian agreement.

Your shoelaces are untied!

Related, watching the Dems defend this

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something,

has been illuminating for many people who’d managed to avoid learning things about Dems.

 

Speaking of keeping people from learning bad things about Democrats, Jim Acosta has won an award for keeping Americans from learning bad things about Democrats while reporting made up bad things about the bad Orange Man!

 

The New York Press Club announced the recipient of their “Truth to Power” award: CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

The guy who was kicked out of the press room for acting like a petulant, spoiled, tantrumy 5 year old

Truth To Power!!!!! Which in the current issue of Newspeak has this non-artist’s rendition:

 

It’s stuff like that that lets you know exactly how imaginative the Babylon Bee is, it’s really hard to think up stuff more absurd than Dems already do. Remember this?

They’ve managed to get more absurd. That takes skill….real willful-ignorance!

 

A whine. I’m sick of the phone companies and computer companies and tech companies thinking they own my phone and my computer. I’m sick of my stuff constantly “updating”, which updates are usually just things they think I need, like changing the solitaire game or something equally important. Right now every time I play solitaire I get a dialogue box that asks if I want to go online and do fun stuff!!!. It doesn’t give me the option of “No”, I can do it now or later. Since I never play solitaire while I’m online, I think I piss it off.

My phone is full of Google apps. I keep turning them off and they keep turning back on. I can turn off “Google Location Service” a brazilion times and it comes back on a brazilion and one.

As most of us saw at Ace’s, Google does manually change searches so it’s harder to find stuff they don’t want us to find.

I’m about done with Amazon too. I just don’t trust those assholes. And we see this

Amazon.com Inc. employs thousands of people around the world to help improve the Alexa digital assistant powering its line of Echo speakers. The team listens to voice recordings captured in Echo owners’ homes and offices. The recordings are transcribed, annotated

It’s for your own good! You belong them Amazon. Just because I bought the Kindle and buy the books doesn’t mean I own them. Just as with my phone and my computer.

My kindle is also always updating, I can’t stop them from doing it. They’re not fixing anything, they’re just putting in spyware and ads. When I buy a new book and connect to the tubes, it often takes 5 minutes or more before it starts downloading my books.

I’m going to start figuring out another way to get e-books. I will buy lots of actual books, but there are Kindle writers, but I’ll probably get some of them on paper. I am thinking of getting another cheap Kindle and never connecting with the one I now own again.

 

Let’s end on the Feel Good Story of the Decade!

This guy met up with some Antifa Fightin’ Fascists. They found out that, while they’re big on the fascism part, they ain’t so hot at fighting.

Yes. We bullied Antifa. We punched them in the face. We took their flags. And we ate their pizza.

First and foremost, I want to boast that I got to punch a commie. In the defense of one of my fellow Americans that was being attacked, I actually got to punch a commie. Granted, he was a weak, noodle-y looking thing, but I got a shot in before the cops stepped in the middle of it and prevented more. I also got a souvenir from one of them. I kept offering to give it back to them if one of them was brave enough to come and take it from me; sadly, the cowards didn’t take me up on it. As I advised readers not long ago, get yourself to a protest.

Heh. RTWT, it’s pretty darn fun.

That it happened in Austin just makes it sweeter.

So why the post? I have a Caballero story that I just had to share with anybody following the Caballero Trials.

The last year went much as previous, requiring $500 to $1,000 every now and then. It would run great for a while, then not so much. Electrical system, suspension and other stuff. The alternator went out last week so I had it replaced but I’ve had problems with the Holley carb. I got it back, drove it to work and back, about 27 miles roundtrip, and smelled gas. The carb is leaking gas on the manifold. So back to the garage. They fixed it fairly quickly so today my buddy went to pick it up. He said as he drove up he saw people spraying it with something white, at first he thought it had caught on fire and they were putting it out.

No such luck. They said a cloud of bees, AZ only has killer bees anymore, flew up and went right into the car. No, really. Fucking killer bees infested my fucking car.

Artist’s rendition

Now I need to find an exorcist I guess. Maybe I should have done that first. Eh, you live and you learn.

Since we’re here, let’s tube!

Staying with Wrath of God stuff, I do have to wonder if Bill Kristol, erstwhile creator of Kristollnacht, visited the Oracle at Delphi and got the same oracle as Croesus. If you go to war with Trump, a mighty empire shall fall! And sure enough, an empire fell.

When last we tubed it was all the same stuff just a different day. So what do we have today? All the same stuff becoming painfully obvious even to the most obtuse but our fine betters in the media and the We’re Better and Smarter Than You party pretending it’s not actually true.

The puppy blenders’ cobs usually just self promote or are really Elite and so, inside the bubble so they believe all the stuff the Elite believe. This post about Mueller cracks me up.

“The most overlooked aspect is how the 2016 DOJ/FBI investigative unit that existed to investigate Trump before the election, is the same group of people who transferred into Mueller’s probe in 2017 to continue investigating Trump after the election.  It always seems odd to me that people don’t realize this very basic point.

Wait’ll they find out they’re the same people who ‘investigated’ Hillary. Boy will they be surprised!

It’s essential reading and will make for a fascinating comparison when the Mueller Report becomes public.

Essential reading for those who still think the Wash Post is “center left” and CNN is a news organization I guess.

Which leads to this

A majority of Americans now believe that the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election was “politically motivated,”

Normal people who tried to pay attention are realizing all the Conspiracy Theorists Who Must Be Ignored and Dismissed were actually pretty darn accurate. What happens when normal Americans figure out what was going on and watch as there are no repercussions for blatant feloniizing and possible treason in an attempted coup?

Judicial Watch Sues for Details of an Intelligence Office Meeting with FBI Regarding Security Threats Caused by Hillary Clinton’s Illicit Email System

Windmills a billion, Judicial Watch, eh,a  couple close ones but still no jail time for felonious treason. I do stand by my idea of firing everybody in the Dept of “Justice” GS-12 up ( maybe GS-9?) and replacing them with the fine folks at Judicial Watch.

This ain’t helpful either.

‘We’ve never seen anything like this’: As Trump threatens to close border, migrants overwhelm Texas cities

Jebus, as our fine betters declare There Is No Emergency!!!!!!!! and try to stop him.

People who are mad at Trump for not building a wall yet have to understand he’s alone. The GOP is against it as much as the Dems.

I do wonder what happens After Trump. AT we’re on our own again except our fine betters will be working overtime to make sure we don’t get that sense of independence and uppitiness that gave us Trump and there aren’t many people who would be on our side who have the money, notoriety and balls Trump has. Rush for POTUS? Kurt Schlichter? Veeshir? Having the NY Times uncover much of my 20s would be kinda interesting.

What with all the noticing of reality by normal folks it could get interesting.

Like Yellow Vest interesting.

Yellow vest activists protested across France on Saturday to support an activist injured last week in a confrontation with police and to show that they remain mobilized against the government’s economic policies.

The demonstrators were undeterred by police protest bans or repeated injuries in 20 weeks of demonstrations.

 

I don’t watch the news much, but I have not seen anything at all about that even though EUnuchs have been protesting a gov’t for 20 weeks, that’s nearly 5 months. And people are getting attacked by the gov’t. Normal people, not “youths” having a car-b-que.

I didn’t see this when it happened and it’s fucking hilarious.

France recalled its ambassador to Italy on Thursday in protest after Italy’s deputy prime minister met near Paris this week with prominent members of the antigovernment yellow-vest movement

That’s funny. The Italians aren’t really happy with EUnuchs.

Our media isn’t covering it much so we don’t get any ideas.

They really need to understand that,  as someone said, normal Americans have two modes, go along to get along and kill them all!. Just ask Nazis and Imperial Japan.

The whole, Jussie Smollet deal is not helping keep us unriled. This op-ed by the Friend of Jussie who “colloquially recused” herself (read: Not Recused herself) is pretty darn infuriatingly hilarious.

So, why isn’t Smollett in prison or at least on trial? There are two different answers to this, both equally important….

First, the law. There were specific aspects of the evidence and testimony presented to the office that would have made securing a conviction against Smollett uncertain… (A blatant lie V)

” These felonies are routinely resolved, particularly in cases involving suspects with no prior criminal record, long before a case ever nears a courtroom and often without either jail time or monetary penalties (but always with the defendant admitting guilt, not proclaiming his innocence and blasting police V)

I am also afraid when I see CPD resources used to initially cover up the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. (SQUIRREL!!!! V)

Since it seems politically expedient right now to question my motives and actions,  (possibly, but also blatantly rational V)

 

Okay, that’s both infuriatingly smug and yet, strangely hilarious that she thinks it’s an excuse.

In Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb!!!!!! news

House Republicans Demand Action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The letter is especially stunning coming from all GOP members of the committee, including moderate Republicans such as Reps. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Their voices join House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) in calling for Schiff’s resignation as chairman

Stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I still ain’t arfing.

 

Keeping with DougM , he wonders if the Venezuelan secret policeman’s HQ catching on fire is a Reichstag Fire deal.

Late stage socialist is hard to figure out.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence but is it Maduro going after ‘dissidents’? Is it a Reichstag Fire? Is it Revolución?
I’m not sure if Hamas is in Venezuela, but isn’t Hezbollah? That would be kinda funny.

With the Russians there, you have to wonder about them.

Tsar Putin I is, of course, a murderous, medievil tyrant, so you have to include him in the mix. Recall his tsarlings routinely poison their opponents in true, Let’s Get Rasputin!, fashion. So I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like that to try to get an SSR, or whatever tsars call them, in South America. Either Maduro or his successor becomes Putin’s tsarling. He’s possibly madder at Reagan than the NY Times over stopping Russia in central and South America. The fact that Venezuela is looking all middle ages only reinforces this.

If that’s happening, I wonder what Putin’s thinking about our poofy-haired maniac?

I figure he’s thinking war is not Trump’s forte, no matter how many mobsters he’s had to bribe and hang out with to get stuff done in NYC and NJ, and his Sec Def, Patrick Shanahan, is a Boeing exec whose job is to build up the military. That’s not exactly a pairing that would strike fear into the heart of the first KBG Tsar. I could see Trump finding a Pinochet to help turn a lot of commies into good commies. Now that would be funny.

Okay, who here thinks it would be funny if WWIII began in a place where WWs I and II were barely fought? Yeah, it is sorta ironic and oh so 20teens.

China, busily trying to take over the Panama Canal by importing millions of Chinese, might get involved to just keep things rolling. I’m not sure which side they’d be on. They do want Vladivostok area pretty badly but Japan would be on our side and they don’t like the Japanese.

That’s the kind of thing that keeps it all interesting.

 

A silly question

To the mattresses. Jebus, where have you been for the last 10 years?

Now some things that piss me off.

First, the No Knock Raid is a scourge on our nation.

A guy called SWAT on another guy over Call of Duty (the wrong guy as it turns out), and the swattee was killed and the first guy got ten years in jail. Now, I’m not defending the swatter, I’m as against that as I can be, but what about the SWAT guys who went all gung-ho on an anonymous phone call and

“We were told that someone had an argument with their mother, and dad was accidentally shot and that now that person was holding brother, sister, and mother hostage,” a police official told reporters at a spontaneous press conference after the shooting. He said that a 28-year-old man—later identified by family as Andrew Finch—”came to the front door” and “one of our officers discharged his weapon,” killing Finch.

?

Yeah, the gun must have just ‘gone off, no, the fucking guy shot an unarmed dude in his doorway over an anonymous phone call

No reason for the shooting was given.

Yeah, we know the reason, because fuck you is why.

and there were no repercussions for the cop. That pisses me off. Sure they were used, but they went all Tacticool over an anonymous phone call. Why not call the house and ask for Joe? See what happens? Nah, let’s get dressed up in our tacticool battle gear and get all adrenalined up and go knock down some doors! Eh, I guess we’re lucky they didn’t bring in the MRAPs.

Man does that piss me off nearly as much as asset forfeiture.

And lastly (shut up), this really pisses me off.

A Bernie Bro-ette accuses Biden of stuff we all knew about and it’s News!!!!!! but it’s not news that it’s a Bernie Bro-ette.

Which, with this other data point

Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and author of bestselling book “Clinton Cash” — a book that played a pivotal role in the 2016 election — has a new investigative book on government corruption that involves a series of accusations involving billions of dollars against some major political players, including former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

 

shows the knives are out for Biden and possibly J Effen Kerry.

I really wanted to see Biden in the No! I’m More Stupider!!!! Dem primary with Elder Statesman Kerry maybe throwing his chapeau in the ring. Oh well.

So what did we learn today?

Arizona’s carolina locusts are lazy gets who outsource their Wrath of God to killer bees.

So we’ve been watching this shit for years, decades in some instance, and yet, our fine betters are still trying to pretend we’re not seeing what we’re seeing.

I hate to have to admit this, but I have to start with a Mea Wronga.

For a few years now I’ve been saying we should fire everybody at the Dept of “Justice” and replace them with Free Republic commenters, but I wuz wrong.

We should fire them all and replace them with the fine folks at Judicial Watch. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying anything against Freepers, I’m just saying that JW is busy doing the job “Justice” is trying to stop.

The Dept of “Justice” is trying to hide evidence of high crimes and possible treason as Judicial Watch is trying to expose it.

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (sic) for all records of communications relating to Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya’s immigration parole. (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (sic)(No. 1:17-cv-02357)).

Judicial Watch filed suit after the Justice(sic) Department failed to respond to an August 4, 2017, FOIA request seeking…

The ‘Russian lawyer’ who finagled a meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. evidently wasn’t supposed to be in the country,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We want to know what the Obama Justice (sic) Department knew and when it knew about what Ms. Veselniskava was up to.”

We know what she was up to, helping Obama’s “Justice” Dept try to fix an election by setting up bullshit charges against erstwhile Grannarch Hillary’s opponent.

I’ve come to realize we need to fire everybody in the IRS and replace them with Freepers, after JW gets done putting most of them in jail.

Emails uncovered by Judicial Watch show David L. Fish, IRS acting director of Exempt Organizations Rulings and Agreements, informing Holly Paz that another IRS employee, Joe Urban, had begun a “secret research project” with the donor lists that were improperly obtained by the IRS.

Chicago-Machine Politics writ large needs to be prosecuted and stopped, our fine betters at the Dept of “Justice” are uninterested in the rule of law, they want rule by corrupt assholes.

Of course, JW would need to hire some Freepers to do the legwork on a whole bunch of crimes done by all facets of Obama’s gov’t assholes, from Fast and Furious to…I don’t even want to remember all the lawless shit they were doing.

We need a rule of law, not Rule By Corrupt Lawyers and Bureaucrats.

 

So what are the members of our corrupt ruling class doing to get to the bottom of this shit? 

DNC Unveils Clinton Institute For Campaign Ethics Reform In Response To Corruption Allegations

That’s The Onion you say?  The Onion obviously has a time machine, their headlines are usually anywhere from a few days to a few years early, so we have that to look forward to.

Although…I could see them calling it the Obama Institute for Campaign Ethics Reform.

 

Let’s look at the Iranian/Saudi war that’s been raging across the Middle East for the last….. what? 8-12 centuries? Sure, it gets “Hot” and “Cold”, but the last few years, with Obama choosing the Iranians’ side, it got very “Hot” in Syria. But that war is about over, not sure who won, it appears to be Iran as ISIS is aligned with the Saudis.

So it’s moved to the Arabian peninsula. File this under, “Yeah, we already figured that out but it’s nice to have official confirmation.”

 Iran manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Shiite rebels toward the Saudi capital and remnants of it bore “Iranian markings,” the top U.S. Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday, backing the kingdom’s earlier allegations.

Leading to some hilarity. Apparently, the Little Satan isn’t thrilled with Iran winning so they’re putting their thumbs on the scale.

The foreign minister of Saudi Arabia has refused to quell rumors that his country is working with Israel to tackle the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah.

Abel Al-Jubeir said Thursday that Hezbollah, a political and militant Shia-Islamist group, has hijacked the system in Lebanon and is spreading a malign influence throughout the Middle East.

 

Sure, Saudi Arabia helps fund Palestinian jihadis, but with Iran cementing their hold on Syria and Lebanaon, Israel would like them to fight their real enemies, the people who believe in almost the same religion; the Saudis.

With Obama helping the Iranians get nukes, this is utterly unsurprising.

He said many countries want to push back against Hezbollah but would not be drawn either way on whether Saudi Arabia was now working with Israel.

That’s huge, but not really unexpected. Israel ain’t gonna nuke the Arabian peninsula because they help the Palestinian Terrortories, Iran would probably nuke the Saudis before they tried to nuke Israel because that’s what Allah wants.

 

Of course, so far as we’re concerned, we want Iran and the Saudis to focus on each other. Why?

That’s why.

 

One thing I never get, why do people take anything China does at face value?

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested three prominent African-American athletes.  It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home.  A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of the presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following.  They all have headshots from UCLA:

At least they don’t have head-shots from the People’s Army.

Yet.

China does not want to be friends with America, they want to use our economy to bolster their Potemkin Economy so they can afford shit like a navy, so they can threaten more places than where they can walk.

 

Fucking Africa, the people on that continent are fucked, their rulers don’t want them educated, they want them superstitious and fearful. People are easier to dominate that way.

That gives us shit like this.

 

RELATIVES dancing with the corpses of their loved ones are helping to spread the plague, officials have warned.

Madagascans have been told to stop the traditional practice of Famadihana, which sees locals dig up deceased relatives and dance with them before they are reburied, The Sun reports.

 

In the Congo they eat pygmies for some fucking reason, in some places they screw virgins to cure AIDS, they’re just fucked.

 

Let’s go to America, it’s not really funny, but it’s less murderous.

Yesterday and today mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht.

Kristallnacht also known as Night of Broken Glass was an anti-Jewish pogrom in Nazi Germany on November 9th-10th 1938.

“That’s not America!!!!!” you say, well, Tuesday we had a little Kristolnacht.

The small but vocal contingent of “NeverTrump” Republicans — those who swore never to vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election, even if that meant handing the country to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats — were exuberant Tuesday night, as Republican gubernatorial candidates went down to defeat in New Jersey and Virginia…

The Weekly Standard section of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party/Never Trumpers are happy. Even though, apparently, Gillespie was a member in good standing of that party.

Yeah. The end of the beginning of putting us in our place.

Of course, it’s not even the end of the beginning, it’s just another step in the more than a decade-long process they’ve been trying since Bush was POTUS.

 

This is something I’m not surprised our fine media betters and our betters in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party have ignored, but why has the dextrosphere mostly ignored it as well?

Brazile, according to Newsweek, in a piece titled “DNC’S Donna Brazile Dedicated Her Book To ‘Patriot’ Seth Rich, Whose Death Made Her Fear For Own Life”,  dedicated her book in part to Rich…

, as the Post reported earlier in the weekend. She wrote that Rich’s murder haunted her and that she’d installed surveillance cameras at her home and would keep the blinds in her office window closed so she could not be seen by snipers,

When I saw that I figured I’d see a bunch of shit about it, but no, just this and some articles the day she said it. Why should she be worried about “bungling muggers” having sniper rifles? Maybe she doesn’t think his murder was a “bungled” mugging!?!?!?!?!

Weird. When I say that it’s suspicious, it’s a Conspiracy Theory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, when Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC and Hillary’s enabler, says it, it’s Not News!!!!!!!

 

Speaking of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party, they’re still butthurt about Roy Moore winning the primary, so there’s no pushback on this.

When the story broke an hour ago that Roy Moore was being accused by multiple women of inappropriate sexual behavior when they were underage teens, I thought, “uh oh.” Then, I saw the source: Washington Post. A short wave of relief came over me before the real dread of our current situation took hold.

I don’t trust the Washington Post. They are among the worst journalistic predators in the country in that they claim to be the beacon of truth while constantly spinning facts to match their liberally approved narratives

He’s been in the public eye for a long time, what with some fairly ‘controversial’ rulings as judge, so why is this coming out now? You don’t need the Harvey Weinstein shit to legitimize tenuously evidenced sexual misconduct claims against a conservative, that’s just standard operating procedure.

Add in that the Wash Post has been at the forefront of Fake News about Trump and, well, this smells like week-old Obama lies.

Hell, it smells like year-old Clinton lies. And those really smell.

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (actual results usually vary) has okayed:

The environmental agency announced in a press release on Tuesday that the company has been approved to let “ZAP male” mosquitoes into the ecosystem to mate with the standard Asian Tiger female mosquito that terrorizes humans in the summer.

Male mosquitoes don’t bite, so when these specially grown ZAP insects, infected with the bacteria Wolbachia pipientis, mate with wild female mosquitoes, the resulting eggs won’t hatch. This will reduce the amount of biting, disease-carrying lady mosquitoes.

I can’t see any problems stemming from this!

Did I say that with a straight face? I’m out of practice so I’ve been practicing again is why I ask.

 

I didn’t pay much attention to this, but the story of the two women and dogs who survived after 6 months adrift in the Pacific smelled as much as a Wash Post ‘scoop’ to me. This guy has the knowledge and boredness to actually look into their claims.

19 REASONS THIS “SURVIVAL” STORY SMELLS FISHY

If I had seen this bit about sharks I would have called bullshit immediately, I find it hard to believe that even today’s journalists are stupid enough to buy it.

“I’m telling you I’ve never seen any Stanley Cup winner come even close to the precision these five sharks had. Three would get on one side and two would get on the other side, and they would make waves and try to knock down the boat.”

“I told [the dogs] not to bark because the sharks could hear us breathing. They could smell us”

Although… I shouldn’t be surprised. Our fine media betters learned all their history from movies, and since SyFy movies made their leftward lurch that must have become their Science/Discovery Channel, what they watch instead of Shark Week. Still, the lack of fully filled bikinis should have clued them it was Fake News.

They’re apparently even more stupid than even I expected. And that’s saying something.

He does some speculating, that seem pretty rock-solid to me.

They’re expecting publicity (mission accomplished) and maybe a book deal. Maybe a TV special. Maybe an episode of “I Shouldn’t Be Alive.” Hell, maybe a movie. They’re attention whores.

Yup.

 

I have to admit, I’m torn on this one.

Hackers from the UK-based security firm Pen Test Partners have found that it’s trivially easy to hack into a Svakom Siime Eye, a $249 Internet of Things dildo that has a small camera on its tip, allowing users to stream a video to anyone of their choosing over the internet. However, if you’re in Wi-Fi range of the dildo and can guess the password, which by default is “88888888,” you can watch the video stream. With a bit more hacking, you can take control of the firmware and then connect to it remotely as well.

As noted at the link, these things don’t always go into the vagina, just saying. So if they end up looking up someone’s ass, isn’t actually accomplishing that goal punishment enough?

 

200 Quatloos on Riki Tikki Tavi!

A  Scottish pro golfer captured video of a cobra battling a mongoose for its life on a South African course during the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge.

Fuck Nagaina.

 

I’m just not in the mood, but I have a bunch of tabs open so here we go.

Via Doug at my favorite ‘Stan, with this illustration,

we see this.

Republican congressional leaders perched on the couches in the Oval Office froze in mid-smile on Wednesday afternoon when they realized President Trump was bypassing them to cut a short-term spending and debt ceiling deal with Democrats, and not them.

It’s funny that the Dems are so powerful that from their minority status they can do this deal the GOP is against while the GOP cannot do anything the Dems are against.

Why…. it almost seems as if they’re playing us!?!?!??!?!?!??!!??!?

 

The Debt Ceiling!!!!!!! Debate!!!!! is utterly stupid and ‘inside politics’. The only time they pretend to care about debt is when they have to raise the ceiling.

During the Obama years they huffed and puffed and blew the ceiling down each and every time. I saw an NRO article the other day where they said something stupid about how the GOP beat Obama over this and now Trump’s screwing the whole thing up. Of course, during the Obama years the GOP spent more than a $trillion more than they took in each and every year and yet somehow they Won!!!!! all while never passing a budget.

Don Surber sez that the Dems worked with Hitler because of the failure of the fascist Anti-fa fascist, I think this is more likely.

 The reason is the Democrats need this win. August was horrible for them. They revealed what ugly, hateful, mean, spiteful, and nasty people they are through their Antifa henchmen.

Most Americans think little of the Confederate statues. Risking a civil war to tear them down seems unusually dumb even for Democrats.

Their followers are going fucking insane and the rest of America is noticing that and that the Dems don’t do anything, all they do is stop Congress from doing anything. Ironically, they’re not really stopping anything. The GOP doesn’t want to do what they were elected to do but their failure theater requires that we think the Dems are stopping them. That’s pretty funny.

The Dems needed something the media could claim was a victory for them, but it wasn’t. It was just Trump doing what he’s supposed to do, fuck with the Establishment.

I also disagree with this.

It’s over.

The election is finally over.

Democrats finally have accepted the results.

The funny  part is that the GOP has still not accepted them. They’re still pissed off at us for not jubileeing for Jeb!.

As for the Dems, as FrnakJ explained long ago, there are two classes of Dems. The smelly footsoldiers, who are getting more and more violently mostly-peaceful and the Alphas who come up with shit to rile them up.

I’ve come to believe that the leadership does not believe the stuff they spew at all. I used to think they did, but now I’m pretty sure they do not so what matters is what they  can get Minitrue to spew and Minitrue is the tail trying to wag the dog. Should be interesting.

 

And lest we forget all the GOP ‘Victories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ in the Obama years when they FOUGHT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! over the budget.

Ryan, McConnell Offer Obama-Era Spending Bill With No Border Wall Funding – Updated

Updated with Trump saying he’s fer it. Yeah, he’s still a northeast liberal, you take the bad with the fucking with our betters.

 

Eh, you’ve probably seen this elsewhere but it does make me laugh.

NBC News has published an article incorrectly claiming that New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who is on trial for corruption — is a Republican.

And people think I’m paranoid when I call them Minitrue.

 

The rest of Minitrue were more subtle, they couldn’t find time to cover the corruption trial of a sitting United States Senator.

All three major network newscasts ignored the first day of Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez’s (N.J.) corruption trial during their Wednesday night airings.

Assholes.

 

An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

What America needs is a “New Party,” that would be dedicated to “returning America to the rule of law under the Constitution,” says Angelo Codevilla, professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University.

We can let the GOP have their Inclusive party without the people who’ve been voting for them and giving them money.

The other day I saw a similar idea over at Ace’s, but he figured there’d be 4 parties.

I figure it’ll be three, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party filled with the Elitest!!!! of the Elite!!!!!!!!!! who Elite!!!!!!, another party fulll of disaffected GOP and Dem Americans who like the America of the end of the 20th and early 21st centuries and would like to get it back, and the last one with crazed leftists of all stripes. At least, they’ll try to start their Reality Based Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but they’re short on planning skills and seem overheated. These people may want to check out the review guide for some ACs to get their temperature down! Seriously though they do not have any sense of discipline and only know how to do what they’re told to do (see, FrnakJ above) so I’d expect that one to fizzle out pretty quickly and violently.

 

More substance to Trump’s Unsubstantiated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! comment about illegal voting padding Hillary’s totals.

More than 5,000 out-of-state voters may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle…

 

News We All Knew But Minitrue and Never-Trumpers (Hey NY Post!) Would Like To Have Us Ignore!

So how surprising is this Totally New Information!!!!!?

“We’ve known for months that more voters cast ballots without any proof of actually living in New Hampshire than the differentials for either federal contest there in 2016,” he said.

That new and surprising.

 

Wow. This is both pathetic and scary. So endy and uhhhh…. lamey.

College Activists March on the Cafeteria: What Do We Want? Hydroponic Cilantro!
Students across the U.S. are making some very precise demands of school chefs and dining halls, including a churrascaria, a gelateria and a sushi bar

 

Students returning to the University of Texas at Austin this fall will have twice as much help wrestling with some of the big questions that college presents.

For instance, does water contain gluten? And, is all food genetically modified?

When I went to college in 1981 people were  upset when they ran out of PB&J, how times have changed.

 

In Elgin Marble News, this pisses me off.

600 iconic movie props memorabilia on sale in London including Indiana Jones’ whip and Star Wars Y-wing

WTF are they doing selling them in fucking London? Those are American treasures! Bring them back!

Although maybe it was a package deal.

Also up for grabs is the original costume worn by Will Ferrell in the classic Christmas film Elf.

Not sure if 600 other movie props are worth getting rid of that, there’s a  dumpster right over there (points right).

 

From the Barrel of a Gun we see this.

A different, simpler time.

 

I really like Sig, my SigPro 2340 is a sweet piece. I also like Sig because they really make some cool shit, they used to make a rifle barrel that could be made into a silencer with just a sleeve (or some other simple part) that freaked out the ATF and now this.

I don’t own a Glock (I’m prejudiced against them for some reason) or a High Point but I’ve always liked the idea of a ‘pistol into a carbine’ kit, I might have to get one of those now.

 

What’s bigger than yer anus?

Jupiter!

 

There are some awesome shots of Jupiter there, mostly much closer than that.

Look at the band across the upper part with what looks, to me, like evenly spaced hurricanes, you can see them in a bunch of different shots. Weird. It looks like a belt I saw on a guy in a western once.

 

Let’s end on street art.

Unless, is that a Maine license plate?

Fucking Tard Dog.

His 14th birthday is coming up and he’s been acting very old, he doesn’t even try to chase cats or get up to bark at passers by anymore. He pretty much stopped eating for a few days, not even McD’s cheeseburgers by Wed. I took him to the vet and he pretty much told me to put him to sleep (Kago, not the vet), he found a ‘growth’ in his abdomen.

So I spent a few days just waiting for him to die. It wasn’t a happy time.  Then….. he started eating again last night and even crapped and now he’s back to what he was last week. I was ready for him to die, that sucked, and then he didn’t. Fucking Dickhead, he even fucks with me about death. I still think he’s close, he won’t even eat cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets until evening and he won’t finish what I give him, but for now he’s acting okay.

 

I still tubed but I didn’t feel like posting.

Now that I’ve depressed you too, let’s tube!

If it’s California so you know they’re denying reality!

 In November 2014, California voters approved Proposition 47, which downgraded drug possession and many property crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. As Debra Saunders reminds us, proponents argued that lesser punishment for low-level offenders would enhance public safety.

But wait, reality makes a comeback!

theft from cars is up 47 percent this year over the same period in 2014. Auto theft is up by 17 percent. Robberies are up 23 percent. And aggravated assaults are up 2 percent. (To be fair, burglaries are down 5 percent).

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

Burglaries are probably down because it’s much easier to rob someone on the street, less travel.

 

Yellowcake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An Al Qaeda affiliate has seized control of uranium mines in Africa with the intent of supplying the material to Iran, according to a diplomatic letter from a top Somali official appealing to the U.S. for “immediate military assistance.”

al Quaeda is mining uranium.

So I guess now we know where they were On The Run!!!!!!!!!!! to.

Why…. it’s almost as if they weren’t actually on the run at all!?!?!?!?!?!!!!??!!!!

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children

Who says they’re “conservative”? Besides themselves, their staff and Minitrue I mean. Certainly not this spitting in my face.

Little bit of idiotic editorializing

offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.

No, really.

That’s a Life-Raft to Save Trump from Making A Huge Mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that much of the country wants him to make.

Well, much of the non-Elite!!!!!!!!!!! part of the country.

So that’s the legislative agenda that Trump is stopping them from achieving I guess.

 

 

The other day I wrote that I was leaning toward 2+2=5, now I see that 5+5+5 does not equal 15.

I’ve seen people blaming that on Common Core but I disagree.

Don’t get me wrong, both the ways they show to teach math are idiotic and don’t work (trust me on that, I’ve tried to teach algebra to kids who do multiplication that way).

The whole point of multiplication is to not need to fucking add after all, why the hell would you want them to count lines when they’re supposed to be multiplying? Why would you spend so much time teaching them to add when you’re trying to teach them multiplication? Getting them to memorize the multiplication table is how you teach that shit, that idiocy is going backward.

But the point is that I figure it’s an unqualified bureaucrat who only has the answer key and it said “3+3+3+3+3” so that’s the only answer.

I bet a dollar I could get this teacher to agree with Abbot and Costello if I could edit “Common Core Multiplication” into the beginning of this vid.

 

Taking a break from That’s Funny! (and endy), let’s look at That’s Not Funny!

For those who are trying to defend Trump as not being a Tool of Russia, this ain’t gonna help.

The State Department on Thursday announced that “in the spirit of parity” it would force Moscow to close its Consulate General office in San Francisco

Previous admins forced them to stay in that insane asylum and Trump is letting them leave? Now I have to wonder if they really Hacked The Election for him.

 

After a few months of this number going down but that seems to have stalled.

Tthe (sic, and not my sic!) number of Americans over age 16 who are not in the labor force – for whatever reason – remained stubbornly high in August, at 94,785,000

That sucks.

 

This one made me laugh.

A Georgia police officer who told a woman during a traffic stop not to worry because police “only kill black people”…

But since he made fun of Black Lives Matter, I’ve seen local news assholes calling it a ‘racist remark’, it’s not racist, it’s fucking hilarious, but…

No matter how funny, he made fun of a Protected Group so…. That’s Not Funny!!!!!!!!!!! and he Must Be Punished!

Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register told a news conference: “I’ve already said that in no context can I tolerate this kind of language. And so I don’t really think that we can sit here and justify any type of language when the verbage is what we heard on that video.”

You can even see a clip of Reverend Al talking about the Racism Inherent In The System if you’re so inclined.

 

This is funny, I do wish I had seen the incident(s) that required this sign.

 

Baltimore is wondering what to do to hide it’s slave-owning, Confederate-sympathies past.

(Baltimore Mayor) Pugh has appointed a task force of city workers to decide where the statues should go and what “creative ideas” should replace them.

It’s funny but Bulgaria’s already solved the problem of trying to hide monuments to Democrats’ heroes.

 

Someone should send this to all the Democrats wondering what to do about troublesome examples of Democrats’ past.

Too bad they’re not worried about commie statues here.

 

 

 

 

But I’m leaning toward 2+2=5.

Yeah, 1984 has been on Comet, they’re taking a break from Made For MST 3000 Movies.

Speaking of 1984, Minitrue! LA Times edition

In writing about violent fascistAnti-fa fascists, they have to write this

The clashes came despite widespread calls from activists and elected officials across the Bay Area for peaceful civil disobedience and underscore Berkeley’s growing reputation for violent reaction by the far left. Other protests earlier this year in the city turned ugly, with far-left and far-right forces fighting in the streets.

No, it wasn’t “Far Right”, it was Milo Yiannpoulis (sp?) and some people who went to listen to him, Milo is not Far Right, he’s a provocateur but he’s not Far Right. He’s a gay man who says stuff that people aren’t allowed to say.

But the LA Times has to lie about him and his supporters because the Tea Party stopped doing protests, they didn’t accomplish shit, and that leaves a Lie About People We Disagree With vacuum in their lives.

 

 

I didn’t know this.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave an unscripted pep talk last week to a group of servicemen on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State.

Mattis was in Iraq on Tuesday for a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi, Task and Purpose reports. But he later stopped off to deliver a pep talk to American troops stationed in Jordan, on the front lines of Operation Inherent Resolve.

Why do we have troops in Jordan? I can understand the Arabian peninsula, but Jordan? There doesn’t seem to be an upside to that. It puts them on a hit list and puts us too close to Palestinian terrorists. Next to ISIS, they’re the mad dogs of the Islamic jihadi world.

 

I love casual ways to say, “WTF did you expect?”

I saw this article about federal flood ‘insurance’ going broke in a big way and I thought, “Of course. There’s a reason regular, need-to-make-a-profit insurance companies charge so much for flood insurance.” I was wondering if the article was going to be all, “We don’t know why this happened!” and “Needs more money tax money!”.

Well, I was wrong. They do actually, in passing, mention that it was meant to fail. I wasn’t wrong about more tax money. That would just be ridiculous.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the singular source of flood insurance for most Americans, is already $23 billion in debt after servicing prior natural disasters, including Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina

Katrina. They still owe money from fucking Katrina.

I mean, it’s bad enough they ‘owe’ money from Sandy (2012) but from fucking Katrina (200fucking5)?!?!?!?!?!

As for “owe”, that’s a load of rich, creamery, fromunda-lokbox sweat. That’s just more part of the federal debt* we’re buried under.  The article does mention that, kudos to them.

Most illuminating use of “Some Believe” EVER!

The government has already said it would be impossible for the flood program to repay such a staggering amount of dues, causing some to believe the program needs a major overhaul to prevent structural debt accumulations every time there is a disaster situation.

The “some” do not include such luminaries as McCain, McConnell, Ryan, Flake, Lyndsey Graham  and the rest of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party.

For the record, I wrote that before I read this passage near the end.

However, the urgency and gravity of the situations in Texas and Louisiana could pressure lawmakers into pushing through a quick reauthorization before the program before its September 30 expiration

But of course.

Now, the casual, “Well, duh.”

“Since the program offers rates that do not fully reflect the risk of flooding, NFIP’s overall rate-setting structure was not designed to be actuarially sound in the aggregate, nor was it intended to generate sufficient funds to fully cover all losses.”

The names people were called for noticing that when they first started that program. “There’s a reason insurance companies charge so much for flood insurance. ” Insurance companies are heartless bloodsuckers! What, do you hate flood victims? You heartless fascist!”

If the media wants to Get Trump!!! (by that I mean piss his followers off), they should focus on that.

But they’re such insular fools that they don’t understand how anybody could be against that. It’s What Jesus Would Do after all. He was all about taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. Sort of a hippy Robin Hood.

 

*I checked the Debt Clock and they’re still at just under $20 trillion. We blew by that long ago, remember 2 years ago when the debt clock stopped for months?

In June, I linked this story that noted that the official US debt hadn’t increased in months.

90 Days: Treasury Says Debt Has Been Frozen at $18,112,975,000,000

So where’s the debt clock now?

$18,4 trillion

In other words, instead of the around $20 trillion where it should be considering the way it’s moved in the Age of Obama, we’re a $trillion and a half lower.

The rule of law, she is dead. The gov’t lying to us is just normal, operation procedure.

 

Related,

Although historically, the IRS chose tax returns to audit based on internal mathematical mistakes or mismatches with third party reports (such as W-2s), the IRS is now engaging in data mining of public and commercial data pools (including social media) and creating highly detailed profiles of taxpayers upon which to run data analytics. This Article argues that current IRS practices, mostly unknown to the general public are violating fair information practices. This lack of transparency and accountability not only violates federal law regarding the government’s data collection activities and use of predictive algorithms…

The IRS has been telling judges to suck their balls for years now, they’re above the law and they know it.

Understatement of the day!

…but may also result in discrimination.

A whole bunch of Tea Party organizations were unavailable for comment. Because the IRS is busy shutting them up.

The rule of law, she is dead.

 

Nother way the media could Get Trump!!!! is talk about his reversing the ban on selling military equipment to the police. I’d bet the media thinks that I’d be for that cuz I support Blue Lives Matter (cuz I hate black folks), but what they don’t understand is that the reason we have Trump is because so many people don’t trust the fucking gov’t. It’s not whatever hate-crime they think it is, or any of them really, it’s about telling our betters to go fuck themselves.

 

Eh, let’s go to They’re All Gonna Die!!!, it’s so much less stressful. Hell, I look fondly back on We’re All Gonna Die!!!, we’re at We’re All Gonna Be Subjects if our fine betters get their way.

India said on Monday it had agreed with China to end a months-long military standoff at a strategically important disputed area in the Himalayas and troops had begun disengaging.

India’s foreign ministry said it had reached an “understanding” after talks with Beijing about the tense confrontation in an area near the Indian border that is claimed by both China and Bhutan.

Oh crap, you know what it means when murderous, expansionist, commie dictators say there’s an ‘understanding’?

Its statement suggested that both sides had agreed to pull back, although the Chinese foreign ministry said only that Indian troops were withdrawing.

Yeah, that.

 

I never liked Joel Osteen, I’ve never watched him much but I thought he was Jim Bakker with less make-up.

Fractal cuttin n pastin cuz the linked NY Post article put cause after effect.

The multimillionaire televangelist came under enormous criticism for refusing to take in evacuees at his 16,800-seat, tax-exempt house of worship. Instead, he tweeted Monday about how “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding. That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”…

We have never closed our doors,” a Lakewood Church spokesman said in a statement to CNN. “We will continue to be a distribution center to those in need. We are prepared to house people once shelters reach capacity. Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm.”

What. Ever.

There are televangelists I have respected, but not him.

 

This leads to us to one question.

 after a dispute with her roommate.

Troopers say at around 12:02 p.m. Saturday, Melissa Lena Odomin, 34, drove an ATV into the residence, broke the windows of a truck then drove that truck into the home.

Two vehicles, and no, the question doesn’t relate to alcohol.

Troopers also say alcohol played a role in the incident.

No!

The question I wondered was if the roommate was her boyfriend, because I think I dated that girl. She was great except she didn’t take vodka well and wouldn’t accept that before she started drinking it.

 

Speaking of which.

ISIS suicide bomber actually hoping for 72 experienced sluts 

A recent honor graduate of the Islamic State Suicide Bomber School of Excellence has publicly voiced concerns over the sexual experience of the 72 women awaiting him in the afterlife, sources confirmed today…

According to sources, Hussein asked his instructors if perhaps the virginity of his eternal harem was negotiable.

There does seem to be a flaw in that belief.

 

Watched Dick Cavett who spent an hour with Kirk Douglas, it was pretty good.

He told a story about getting on an elevator at a hotel where he was appearing.

There was something else going on at the hotel and all the people had name tags with their home towns on their chests. One guy says, “Hey, you’re Kirk Douglas!” and he responds, “Hey Joe!” Joe asks how he knows his name, Kirk goes, “Joe Tyne, right? From Tulsa?”, now Joe’s freaking out. “How do you know that?” As the elevator doors opened Kirk says, “I can’t believe you don’t remember!” and walks away.

That’s hilarious.

It was cool even though Cavett sucks at interviewing, all he does is ask questions like. “What made you decide to become an actor?” and other questions that basically ask for anecdotes, the same questions every interviewer asks every actor. but he had such cool people that their anecdotes are cool. Like that one with Kirk Douglas or when Groucho was messing with Truman Capote. Cavett loses control of the show fairly often.

 

Took the Caballero to get the a/c fixed. When I got it back the antenna was gone. Since it was some half-assed aftermarket job like much of what the previous owner did, the mount is gone. Uckfay. How the hell did HeyZeus find this guy in freaking Gilbert? Sonomabatch.

We’ve really pissed off reality what with all the ignoring and denying we’ve been doing.

Let’s see what it has to say about the matter!

 

As we’ve discussed here, journalists in Mexico are being killed for the crime of doing actual journalism.

The 57-year-old, who was enrolled in a government program to protect journalists after years chronicling corruption in one of the deadliest countries for reporters, was one of three people killed in Tuesday’s shooting in Veracruz state…

Rios was at least the ninth journalist killed in Mexico so far this year. The spate of killings, which have targeted some of the country’s most prominent and respected reporters,

Since our fine media betters can’t be assed to notice that or else it might give ammo to Racist Haters Who Hate Them Some Brown Folk, what sort of result do we have in Mexico?

The despair and frustration he’s facing are familiar to dozens of vacationers who have been victimized at upscale, all-inclusive Mexican resorts.

Following blackouts, robberies, assaults, even the death of a loved one, they have experienced indifferent — if not hostile — treatment from resort staffers, local police, and doctors, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation has found…

And that the U.S. Department of State does little or nothing to help them.

“The laws in Mexico make it very, very difficult to hold anyone accountable,” said Nancy Winkler, a Philadelphia attorney who represented a family whose 22-year-old son drowned in a Mexican resort pool in 2007. “It’s a nightmare.”…

As much as 36% of the alcohol consumed in the country is sold or produced illegally, and potentially dangerous, according to a 2017 industry and government report

Nice. So what happens when a Mexican police officer decides to do his job?

…said the police chief overseeing her case seemed genuinely concerned and determined to help her.

Mario Gomez Frias was his name. He was chief of police for tourists. The chief tried to get the Iberostar Paraiso Maya resort to cooperate with the investigation and to provide photos of security staff.

Frias was shot dead in his squad car months later.

The worst part, for our fine betters, is that the State Dept has been forced to notice reality.

For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, see our state-by-state assessments below. U.S. government personnel and their families are prohibited from personal travel to all areas to which the Department recommends “defer non-essential travel” in this Travel Warning. As a result of security precautions that U.S. government personnel must take while traveling to parts of Mexico, our response time to emergencies involving U.S. citizens may be hampered or delayed.

They try to pretend that the Mexican gov’t is Doing Something!!!, but I really don’t like fish tacos and, as we all know, the gov’t of Mexico is a criminal enterprise and they cede control to murderous drug cartels in return for getting money and being allowed to keep living.

 

Trump’s fucking with murderous dictators, both Commie and Tsarist!

The U.S. sanctions list on North Korea just grew a little longer, as the Treasury Department turns up the heat on Pyongyang’s enablers in China and Russia.

I would quibble with this

The new sanctions on Chinese firms are sure to irk Beijing, since China has so far enforced this month’s new UN sanctions more strictly than usual.

That should read, “China has attempted to appear to enforce UN “sanctions” more strictly than usual.”

 

I’ve been worried about China needing to get frisky because of the huge imbalance in genders there, I see I didn’t take into account the Internet.

A rising number of young Chinese people are failing fitness tests required to join the army because they are too fat and masturbate too much,

We need to send more Ho-Hos, energy drinks and Hot Pockets, Stat!

 

Let’s take a break from reality and look in on Reality!!!!!, specifically, some book about Hillary.
I’m not gonna quote any, but their point is that Hillary “Put up with Bill’s sexual predation.

It’s funny, the names I’ve been called for noticing that from back in the early-mid 90s until just last year but now it’s Breaking News!!!!!!!!!!

Next you’ll tell me the media are a bunch of lying fakenewsers!

Something ugly is happening in America. Something dangerous, divisive, and destructive. And every day, the leftwing media help fan the flames of division, hatred and strife…

What’s the essence of the media’s false narrative? It says that Donald Trump got elected by running an overtly racist campaign. One that appealed to the basest elements of our society, now summed up as the alt-right. These are the people who voted for him, and these are the people who stand by him today.

They hate all Hispanics (and Mexicans in particular). They want all Muslims banished from our country (if not killed). And of course, they loathe blacks, wanting to subjugate them once again.

No! I’ve been assured that I hate me some black, brown and wymynz folk cuz I voted Trump, surely CNN wouldn’t lie to me?!?!?!?!?!

 

It seems others are noticing reality, even at CNN.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota got steamrolled by a panel of 6 people brought on to discuss Trump’s reaction to the Charlottesville tragedy.  You could tell the panel segment wasn’t going to play out the way Camerota envisioned it from the very start when she asked who was “troubled” by the President’s response to the violence in Charlottesville and precisely no one raised their hand. Meanwhile one panelist gave this response regarding Trump’s controversial “blame on both sides” comment:

 “I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I mean he addressed the problem. Let’s face reality, there are problems on both sides.”

“I think it’s ridiculous to have me choose between Hitler and Stalin which is what I consider both groups are.”

“The Antifa group to me is totally a very Stalin-ish kind of group.  If you’re willing to set fires and burn places to the ground, that doesn’t seem like a very peaceful group to me.”

Now that’s news! I will say it’s hilarious that Alisyn Camerota went full leftist after trying to pretend to be ‘fair and balanced’ for years. I wonder if she’s sincere or just realized the way to CNN stardom is dishonest fakenewsing.

 

Speaking of Tolerance, Love and Mostly-Peace, the violence at Gays for Trump events!

When called KKK I responded that I was not the KKK , but a Gay man with a Black Husband and the President of  Gays for Trump. They claimed that Milo was a Nazi,” Boykin said.

“Then someone got angry.  I was threatened by someone from Black Lives Matter. Twice I was assaulted.  I reported this to the police,” Boykin said.

With video of the assault.

Authorities are uninterested, you know, cuz the clintonista at the state level and the lefties at the local level have decided to use gov’t to put us in our place.

Gov’t over the people, on the people and fuck the people!

 

Italians might not be very warlike, but they can go all bloodbath just like any other good Europeans.

that mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro…

peaking at a conference in Rimini, north east Italy, he further revealed the extraordinary order he has given to armed police at one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe…

“If anyone runs into St Mark’s Square shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’, we will take him down,” he continued.

“A year ago I said within four paces, now within three. I will say it in Venetian: ‘Ghe Sparemo’ (We will shoot him).”

They’ve been throwing bodies in those canals for centuries, what’s a few more? I would guess it’s been a few hundred years since it was Muslims, but still.

This guy could be Mitch McConnell for his blatant disregard of his voters

Video has subsequently emerged of the left-wing mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, rushing up to Brugnaro after the speech shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and laughing.

I know I shouldn’t try to figure that stuff out, but I get curious.
